Whatever It Takes

When they meet, it's not under ideal circumstances, but even with the many complications of having a relationship while being in one of the most popular boybands in the world, can Audrey and Liam make it work?


3. I should've kissed you

I awake to the sound of chirping birds and a nice cool breeze softly blowing on my face.  I open my eyes to see the window open.  The room is brighter now, its daytime, probably about 10 in the morning.

I am just starting to enjoy this serenity when I remember that I'm in the hospital.  Where is the girl from last night?

I turn my head to the right and there she is, sitting on the same chair as last night, reading a book.

Wow, she looks even more beautiful in the sunlight!

I am trying to decide how to get her attention when she glances up at me and sees me starring at her.  Her eyes widen as she stares back in shock.  I can easily see that she is trying to stay as cool as possible, but she is totally fangirling inside. It's kind of adorable...

We sit like that, starring at each other, for a good 10 seconds before I finally decide to break the ice.

"Hi, I'm Liam" I say.  

She just smiles back and nods, accidentally allowing a small giggle to escape.  She covers her mouth in embarrassment and looks down.  I smile back at her and continue, "It's OK.  So whats your name?'

She slowly looks up and says "Audrey"

"Thats a nice name" I say, really thinking that its not just nice, its beautiful.

As much as I would like to just talk and get to know Audrey, I really need to know what exactly s going on here.

"I overheard Paul telling my mum that I got hit by a car!  What happened?  Wheres my mum?  Where's the driver?  Uh, who are you exactly?'

I can't help it, all my questions come spilling out of my mouth before I even have time to realize I had these questions.

"Sorry" I say, "I just really need to know what's going on."

She seems to find my rambling amusing.  "Your mom is down in the food court with Paul and the other boys, eating.  Yes, you were hit by a car. When you were leaving your hotel, Niall said to go to the gym, you two were spotted by a huge crowd of girls waiting outside the hotel.  He said you guys were going to just go and say hi, sign some autographs, take some pictures, but the girls freaked out and started a stampede towards you.  You both started to run, but in different directions, and thats all Niall could say.  Apparently you ran into a road and the car couldn't stop in time."

I notice that Audrey avoided the question of wher the driver is.

"Where's the driver?" I ask again.


She looks down, and I see worry and guilt wash across her face.

"It wasn't...?"

"Yes, it was me, and I'm so so so sorry.  More sorry than you could ever know.  I'm not the best driver, and you just appeared right infront of me.  I tried ti stop the car, I really did, I just couldn't in time."

As mush as I want to be mad at her, I just can't be.  The sadness in her eyes is enough to make anyone melt.

"It's alright, I forgive you.  I know you didn't mean to hit me, it was an accident."

She still looks beyond guilty.

"Look, if it makes you feel any better, I seriously don't blame you.  You were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.  If it was anyone's fault, it was those girls', and I don't blame them either, they just got excited.  A little too excited..."

I see a small smile begin to cross her lips, and she lets out a small laugh.  My heart skips a beat.

"Well I better get going, I just wanted to stick around and make sure you were OK, and also apologize for my rather, um, terrible driving..."

She gets up and starts toward the door.

"NO!"  I exclaim.  Opps... that was a little desperate.  I couldn't help it. Audrey can't leave.  I need to talk to her, get to know her.  I quickly lie to cover up my outburst.

"Don't leave yet, I'm alone, and i'm pretty sure I'll get bored very quickly."

"Well, alright, if you want."  She says.  "Just until everyone else gets back, I need to get to the barn to ride my horse."

Horseback rider! Not only is she gorgeous, she rides too!

"Wow, you have a horse!  I've always wanted to try and ride"

"Yeah, I love it.  I don't think I could live without riding.  Oh, and don't worry, I'm a much better rider than driver!'

She smiles, and I smile back.  

"It would be really fun to teach you sometime."

"Yeah, I'd love that"  I reply.

I know Audrey is probably just saying this to be nice, but I can't help but really hope that by some miracle she does teach me someday

We continue talking, asking each other questions in turn.  We begin with easy "getting to know one another questions, but the questions gradually become deeper.

"if you could go anywhere in the word, where would you go and why?"  I ask

"London, I've loved it ever since the first Harry Potter movie.  It just seems like a gorgeous place with many fun things to do.  I guess I can't put my finger on why, exactly I want to go there, I just do."

"Haha, I love Harry Potter, and yeah London is great." I say, "now your turn."

"hmm..." she thinks for a minute, "what is one thing absolutely no one else in the world knows about you."

"Oh, tough one..."  I think for a minute.  Should I say it,  shouldn't say it, but I'm gonna say it.

"I think I might really like you."

She turns her head and looks at me in shock.

Just then the door opens and Mom, Paul and the boys walk in.  Audrey continues to stare.

LIAM!! YOUR AWAKE!!! Niall screams, and he and the other lads run to my bed and give me a huge group hug.

"Boys! Liam got hit by a car! Be careful!"  Paul scolds, but as soon as the boys finish their hug, Paul comes and gives me a bone crushing hug that only Paul can give.  Then mom comes up and gives me a soft, gentle hug and whispers in my ear "I love you"

"I love you too." I reply

I look over and see Audrey looking at me awkwardly

"I should probably get going now"  she says.

"Oh, alright." I look down,"You should come back and visit me though.  Please?"

"I'll try" she says.  and with that she is out the door.

I hope I didn't scare her off.  I guess all I can do now is wait, and hope that she does come back and visit.

"LIAM!" i'm struck out of my stupor by Louis yelling at me.

"Oh, sorry.  What?"

"We were asking you if wanted to watch a movie."

"Oh, yeah, what are we watching."  I say sounding much happier than I feel

"You pick."

"Toy Story?"

"Ugh, fine!"  they all say in unison

"Only because you're in the hospital mate"  Harry adds

and with that we all sit down to watch the best toys in the world overcome jealousy, just to become the best friends in the world

A/N:  So how are we all liking Audrey? see I told you this chapter would be much longer.  Sorry about how long it took me to get this chapter up, it took me forever to decide on Audrey's name, and then it just took a while to type the whole chapter out.  As always, please feel free to leave questions and comments.
<3 you all
