11. Drifted Apart

Chapter 11 Brianna's POV Liam's eyes twinkled and looked irresistable in that light. He wiped a couple tears off my face with his thumb. I broke down in tears and he hugged me until I was abke to tell my story. "When I was 2 years old, my mother had another kid. It was my little brother and his name was Keith. Me and him were so close and we almost never fought. Well, Keith was made fun of a lot, because he was a little bit of a 'nerd.' he was bullied in 4th grade up until high school. I had lots of friends and he didn't have any. People said, 'how can YOU be HER brother?! She's popular and then look at you.' One day, when he was almost done with his sophomore year, we found him dead in his bedroom. There was a slit in his throat and a knife in his hand. It was confirmed as a suicide and it was all because of the bullies. Our family has never been the same since. My parents fight so much more. I barely even talk to my mom that much anymore. I'm pretty sure my mom and dad don't live together anymore. We've slowly drifted apart and I don't talk to my aunts or uncles or cousins that much. Just my dad. That's really the only close family I have anymore. Ever since Keith died, my life changed. I wanted to hunt those bullies down and hurt them. They had hurt the one I loved the most. We were closer than ever. I can only remember one time when we fought and it wasn't true fighting. We were little and argued about whether Barbies or Transformers were better," I smiled through the tears, remembering that night, "I helped him through everything he needed. Including a time when his old girlfriend had sex with him and left him. We only spoke of that to each other and no one else. We didn't even tell our parents or mention it at the funeral. I told him about Brandon and he helped me through that. Those bullies ruined my life forever and that picture was of me and Keith playin in the sprinklers when we were little." "I'm so sorry," Liam said as he hugged me and I cried into his chest. He carried me out of the room and took me into the living room. He set me down and Joi said, "Hey Bri, can I talk to you in the kitchen?" "Yeah, sure," I said, confused. We walked into the kitchen and she asked what was wrong. "Keith," I answered. Joi hugged me and I smiled. At least, I still had my friends and Liam around to comfort me. Joi let go and we went back into the living room. I felt myself being lifted into the air and I found myself in the sunroom with Liam. I laid in one of the chairs and Liam squeezed in th same chair. I thought of Keith again and cried a bit in Liam's arms. I got up and opened my laptop. I opened the Internet and got on Pandora. Eventually a slow song came on and Liam grabbed me by the waist and we began to dance. At the end of the song, he kissed me and I kissed back. We pulled away when the door opened. Kayleigh walked in and then apologized for interrupting and asked if we wanted a drink. "Coke, please," Liam said. "Dr. Pepper me," I said. Kayleigh left and me and Liam laid back down on the chair. "So, what do you want to do tomorrow?" he asked me. "I honestly don't know. We've been everywhere around here already," I replied. "I bet you've never been to a private part of the beach. We can take you guys there tomorrow if there's enough cars," he said. I smiled, "That sounds like a lot of fun and I have a Mustang that my dad gave me. We can also use Joi's car and Kayleigh's. I think that's plenty of cars," I said. I got up and asked everyone if they wanted to go to the beach tomorrow. I heard various yes's and was satisfied. I went back into the sun room, where Liam was looking at my stuff. He picked up the picture I had taken at Six Flags in my junior year. It was me, Kayleigh, Jazz, Joi, Bridget, and Crystal standing in front of the Aquaman, totally soaked. I smiled remembering that day. I had ridden every ride in the park that day. I had the time of my life and I got to share it with all my best friends. "It looks fun, doesn't it?" I said, causing Liam to jump and set down the picture. "Sorry," he said, "I didn't think I should go through your stuff, but I saw that picture and wanted to see what it was." "It's fine," I said. Kayleigh soon came in with our drinks. "Thanks," we said simultaneously when she handed them to us. "No prob," she replied. My keyboard was sitting in front of us and Liam said, "Hey, why don't you play a song for me?" "Nah, I'm not very good anyway," I answered. "Oh come on, please?" Liam said. He did a pouting face and he looked like a puppy. I couldn't resist. "Oh, alright," I replied. I sat down in front of the keyboard and began to play Payphone. I closed my eyes and hummed the tune quietly, so I could get into the music. I finished and I opened my eyes. Liam sat there expressionless.
