Juliet

I had seen enough. I thanked the officer, gave Darcy back to my brother and we all walked out. We got the kids back in their seats and ready to go. Liam drove, I was in shotgun and Niall sat behind Liam.

"So...how do you feel now?" Liam asked.

"I'm...not sure. I guess I'm glad to know who it was and that both are going away. To high security, if I may add. My kids and I will be safe. Everyone will."

"So why the sudden burst of confidence?" Niall asked.

"I...I guess the want of moving on overpowered the part that wanted to mourn."

He was quiet after, so I assumed he was satisfied with the answer. I pulled my phone out of my jacket packet and saw I had a text from Harry, wondering where we all were. I told him we'd be home soon and tell him then. 10 minutes later, we were home.

I opened the door with one hand and let Jr. go run. Darcy soon followed suit and Sarah went to the living room. Niall, Liam and I walked into the living room and I stopped when I saw Harry.

"Jewels... You're.." he stuttered.

"Yeah. I'm down here." I said, chuckling after.

A smile twitched into his lips. He came over to me, stopping about a foot from me. He moved his head, motioning toawrd the French doors that lead to the backyard. I followed after him after getting a look from my brother and sticking my tongue out to him. It was summer at this point. Harry sat on the edge of the pool, his feet soaking. Before I came into his view, I rolled the bottoms of my jeans. I sat next to him, somewhat close.

"Where were you guys?" he asked, looking out over the pool.

"The police station."

"For what?"

"I wanted to find out who took me."

"Did you?"

"Yeah."

He seemed to tense. "And? Who was it?"

"Maika. And Jake."

"How does Taylor feel about it?" He spoke again after I didn't reply. "Jewels?"

"I...broke off the engagement. Just..the relationship as a whole." He relaxed again.

"Why?"

"I figured...It still makes me extremely nervous to be around guys, even you and Niall and the other lads. Even right now, my heart is racing. But...I wanted to know know who did this more than I wanted to sit and mourn."

"So what does this mean for the future?"

"Well. Focus on my modeling, and the kids. Sure as hell not running away."

"Definitely not. We can't lose you again. Do you know how worried we were?"

"I can imagine. But I don't want to disappear again."

"Like my memory?" he chuckled.

I shook my head, laughing with him. "Do you think anything is holding you back from remembering?"

"I don't know. But I'm trying."

"Hey, you wanna get everyone out here for a swim? It's hot enough."

"Defnitely. Let's go." he said smiling.

The lads rushed upstairs to change, Sarah got into her suit, and I changed the twins into theirs, getting their floaties on them. Luckily, my starvation hadn't made me too thin. I still looked normal, just on the small side.
