My name is Carter Matthews. I'm 17 years old and incredibly strong(that's what people have told me). I have shoulder length, straight, black hair. And when I save the Niall Horan from two guys trying to hurt him, he wants to hire me as a body guard. But along the way... I feel something... not just a friendship... but something more...

9. 8)Lets Talk

{Carter's Mom's POV}

"Alright Mrs. Matthews, tell us what happened" the police officer said.

"Okay, my daughter, Carter, ran away about a week ago. And last night, she snuck into my house with another boy, knocked us both out, then killed her sister."

"But why would she kill her sister," the police officer asked.

"I don't know. It was probably because she does drugs" I said.

"But she was checked into the hospital two hours later because she got shot."

"When she was strangling Emily, her father came home from the shooting range, and the boy she came home with attacked him and he accidentally shot Carter," I said.

"Well, your daughter seems very dangerous. Do you know where we can find her?"

"Yes, she goes to the high school down the street."

"Okay, we'll make sure that she'll be taken care of."

"Thank you"


{Carter's POV}

Today's the day. I'm going back to school today. I put on a white lace top, a light pink skirt, white oxfords, and a silver necklace that says love that Niall got me after my surgery. I put my hair into a low messy bun after I curled my hair. "You ready?" Niall asked.

"Yeah, I guess" I said. He took my hand and we walked to the car. He pulled into the parking lot and I opened the door.

"Okay, good luck. Call me if anything happens and you need me to pick you up, okay?" I nodded my head and he kissed me on the cheek. After I got out of the car he drove away and I slowly walked into the building. People that I know looked at me and laughed and whispered and pointed at me. I hate this! I ran to the bathroom and did the thing I promised I would never do again. I can't believe I snapped so easily. I pulled out my razor and started thinking about everything anybody's ever called me or any mistake I've ever made:







Drug abuser

Purple hair

Each time I thought of something I cut myself. I cut myself eight times total. I finally stopped when I heard a police officer calling my name. I quickly wrapped my wrist and put on Niall's sweatshirt. I walked out of the bathroom and a police officer quickly put me in handcuffs.

"Hey! What's going on?!?" I asked.

"You just need to come with us" the police officer said.

"Why?!?!" I was almost screaming.

"You've committed too many crimes" he said.

"Crimes?!?! What crimes?!?!?" I was really screaming now. They dragged me out of the school and put me in the back of a cop car.

•One Hour Later•

"You get one phone call. Make it count." The police officer said. I know exactly who to call.

"Niall?" I asked anxiously.

"Um.. No this is Liam. Wait... Carter? Why didn't you call us on your cell phone?" Liam asked.

"No time for extra questions! Just come down to the police station!"


"Just come!! Hurry!" I said.

"Okay! Calm down we'll be right down."

"Okay thanks!" I said and hung up. The police officer put me back in handcuffs and put me into a jail cell. "What did I do?" I asked.

"Hmm... let's see. You're a drug abuser, you broke into a house, and you killed your sister" he said. My eyes got so wide that I'm surprised they didn't pop out of my head.

"Okay! Um... one, I quit using drugs a long time ago! Two, I did not break into a house! It was my parents house and I have a key! And three, my parents killed my sister, not me! My parents abuse me so I wanted to get my sister out of that house! I just got out of the hospital because my mom shot me in the chest!"

"It's true, sir!" Liam said as he ran through the door. All of the guys came running through the door after him. All but Harry was running. You know, when you mention it, he's been really quiet ever since I got shot.

"Guys!" I screamed. "I hope you guys have a good lawer" they all looked confused so I went on, "I have to go to court to clear my name or I'm going to jail. I CAN'T GO TO JAIL, LIAM!" I was shaking him by the shoulders now and Niall moved Liam out of the way and grabbed me by the shoulders. Tears were streaming down my face so Niall wiped them away with his thumbs.

"Baby, it's okay. We're gonna get you outta hear, okay?" I nodded my head and he pecked me on the lips.

"do you really think that you guys can get me out?" I asked.

Zayn got off of the bench and walked back to me. "of course we'll get you out of here, Carter. We'll stop at nothing to get you out of here" all of the guys nodded their heads. Harry got up and grabbed Niall's arm and pulled him away from me.

"what's that about?" I asked. Zayn, Louis, and Liam just shrugged so I just figured it was nothing.

{Harry's POV}

I wanted to help Carter. I just don't want Niall to get hurt. I don't think Carter is the right person for Niall. Carter's just so dangerous. Pulling a stunt like this could've gotten us all killed. I know that I helped her, but I didn't know how to say no, plus I thought that her parents would be drunk, after all that's how she described them. But when I found out what we were actually doing, I almost backed out, but I didn't want to hurt her feelings.

"Niall, why do you want to help her?" I asked him.

"why wouldn't I? She's my girlfriend!" he said.

"That's the other thing, I don't think you two should be together"

"What? How could you say that!" Niall was yelling now and he looked just about ready to hit me.

"I just don't want you to get hurt. She looks like the kinda girl that would make a guy fall in love with her, then break his heart."

"Didn't you hear her story?! I really don't think that with all that's happened to her, she would do something like that! I'm sure that she wants to find someone who really loves her!"

"I just don't think that she's the one that Zayn was talking about!"

"What do you know about love, Harry?! No, how do you know about my love life?! Who made you in charge of who I can't date?!" Niall yelled. "I don't need to listen to you!" He started to turn and leave, but I stopped him.

"Niall, just listen to me!"

"NO! Harry, I won't listen! You have no right to tell me who Carter is!"

"Niall, look, she's dangerous-" Niall cut me off mid-sentence.

"It was one time- and it wasn't even her idea! It was Liam's brilliant idea of making her feel better!"

"She could've gotten us all killed!"

"If you haven't noticed, she's the only one that got hurt! She got shot, you didn't!" He pulled his arm away as I still had it into grip.

"Niall, wait!" I yelled as he was angrily walking away.

"No, Harry!" He yelled without even looking back. He must hate me.


{Niall's POV}

I can't believe what Harry said about Carter. I love her. I love Carter. And Harry has the nerve I say that we don't belong together. I walked up to Carter and passionately kissed her between the bars. I pulled away and I cupped her chin in my hand.

"I promise. I will get you out of here. I promise." I reassured her.

"I know you'll try your best. But there's no way to promise that. It's all up to the judge. You know that." She has so many doubts. She's so broken inside because of everything that's happened to her. But I'm determined to fix her. I will help her. I love her. And I can only hope that she loves me back.
