Default [Q] Contacts Storage deleted, DESPERATELY need help

So I messed up bad, and somehow got rid of the Contacts Storage app. I don't really know how I did it, but now I have no contacts, and can't add any contacts or use the contacts app, as it just crashes. I tried a factory reset (twice), but apparently that won't make Contacts Storage reappear. WHAT DO I DO???

As a result, whenever I try to sync my Google account, it says "Sync is currently experiencing problems it will be back shortly."

If someone gives me the apk, will I be able to install it just like any other app and make my problems disappear? I am a beginner, so if anyone could help me out and explain it to me detailed, please help. I'm desperate.

EDIT: I am rooted, on Android 4.4.2, no custom ROM

you can pull it from your nandroid backup. (?)
or if you have titanium backup you can get it from there (?).
err on the side of kindness
