I look up at Liam, not really noticing Oliver rubbing up agaist his legs."Only a minute. I knocked, you must've not heard me. Your voice really is beautiful you know.. Like you" Liam nearly whispers the last part and I giggle. I grab my beach bag equipped with sunblock, a towel, and some other things. He blushes madly when I come back out. I grab his hand and walk out the door, locking it. I remember how no one will ever love me, and let go of his hand. He doesn't let go. I look up at him, he just smiles and looks down at me.
"Erm.. we better get going.." I say and we walk out to his car. "Where's everybody else?" I ask, curious. "Went separatly, didn't want you to be in someone's lap for an hour." We get in the car and start driving. At some point I fall asleep, and I'm awoken with a "Emily... Get up Em...." I look around. My head rests on Liam's shoulder. "Oh, er, sorry.." He chuckles and we step out of the car onto the beach, and see the boys. "Oi, Liam, Emily, over here!" Zayn shouts. We run over to that part of the beach, and we all talk a bit before Zayn rushes into the water.
I lay out my towel and sit on it, still fully clothed. I was really self-concious thanks to bullies. Liam sits next to me in the sand."You can't swim in your clothes you know." he chuckles. I bite my bottom lip and stare at the ground. "Ok Em, I know. I know that you're probably really self-concious, don't be. You're beautiful, no doubt about it. You should know that." I sigh. Does he really think that? No, he just feels sorry for me and my ugly scarred self. "Please Emily? For meeeee?" "I don't want to Liam..." "Please Emily?" He looks at me with the same sad eyes I saw when he found out I cut.
"Okay." I give in. "Yay!" Liam cheers. I stand up and thrown the towel that was underneath me beside me. I take my clothing off, besides my bikini. I quick wrap the towel securely around me. "There. Happy?" I say frustrated. "Not quite." Liam says. "What do you-" I'm cut off by Liam ripping my towel away from my grasp. "Liam!" I gasp.
He picks me up over his shoulder and as he's running towards the water, I see Zayn and Harry playing Frisbee. "ZAYN! Helpppp!" I yelp. "Payback!" he chuckles. "Liam!" I giggle. He runs as far as he can in the water, until we fall down together.
I'm laughing uncontrolably, and Liam says, "What're you laughing at? I'll give ya something to laugh about!" He carries me bridal stlye laying me on the sand. He holds down my arms with one arm, and tickles me with the other. "Ahh! L-Liam! Ok! That t-tickles!"
"H-how can I-I get you o-off me?" I giggle. "A kiss?" Liam asks. I freeze, everything slows down a bit. The only kiss I've ever had was the one on the cheek from Liam. I thought about this. Nothing would go wrong if I just gave hima little peck.... But I can't fall for him. I can't. "O-ok!" I say and give him a kiss on the cheek. "Not good enough." he teases, he stops tickling me. I give him a peck on the lips.
"Better?" I ask. "Much" he says with a cheeky grin rolling off of me. I dust myself off, and grab my sunblock. I put it all around me, except I can't reach the back. "Hey Li!" I shout. "Yeah?" he asks running towards me. "Can you, er, get my back?" I ask nervously. He chuckles, "Sure babe." He rubs it all along my back, and when he finishes I thank him. I'm building a small sand castle due to my boredem, when Zayn jogs up to me.
"Hey Em. Mind if I sit?" I shake my head 'no' and he sits next to me with his arm slung around my shoulder. "What's up Zayn?" "Liam" he says with a smile. "What about him?" I ask nervously. "He likes you, you like him. Haven't you figured it out by now?" "No!" I shout in defese. "I don't fancy Liam.." I trail off. "Surrrre." Zayn says sarcasticly carrying out the 'r'. He stands up and walks away. Oh Zayn.
I stare at Liam from a while away. He is sweet. I think to myself. Plus, nobody besides James has ever been nicer to me. Maybe he does like me... My thoughts are interuppted by Liam saying, "Hey Em, wanna come join us in the water?" "Yeah sure!" I say jumping up and running into the water. I swim to Liam and climb on his back. "Hey Emily." he chuckles. I felt so happy for the next six hours at the beach.
We had played, joked and had fun. now it was dark at around seven when we decided to play Truth or Dare. Well, Lou decided it. He has a liking for that game. We sat around the fire and played asking embarrising questions and dares. "Ok Li, Truth or Dare?" Zayn says. "Truth." Liam says; he hates dares. Zayn smiles and winks at me and I give him a stare that says Don't you dare say it. He shrugs and says, "Who do you fancy Liam?" Oh, come on! Zayn, I could kill you right now!
"Well, I won't tell you yet, but she's beautiful, sweet, and caring. I haven't told her yet though; I will soon." Oh. My. God. Is it not obvious he doesn't like me?! I'm ugly, mean, and selfish. I find myself wishing I was the girl Liam fancied. After the little game, we set off our differnt ways, but Liam convinces me to agree to watch some fireworks with him.
We're both laying on our backs on a towel, my head resting on Liam's chest. "Hey Li?" I ask. "Yes Em?" he says with a chuckle. "Why do you care?" "What do you mean?" I sigh and sit up, actually making eye contact this time. "Why do you care about me?"
He sits up aswell. "I don't know. Why do you ask.?" I shrug my shoulders and mutter, "Cause nbdy evr curred erbut mer." "What? Speak up Em, I can't hear you."
"Cause nobody has ever cared about me.." "Well now they do, get over it." Liam says jokingly, nuding my stomach with his elbow. I smile widley, just happy. he wraps one arm around me, and I lean into him. Just then, the first firework atarted, and made such a loud noise, that it sacred me at fist.
I hid my face into Liam's chest, and he strokes my hair saying "It's just the fireworks. Nothing to be afraid about." That calms me and I peek my head out to make sure it was just the firework. They were beautiful. "Woah." I mutter, looking up at them. This was te first time I'd ever seen them, except for pictures. With the fireworks lihhting up the night sky, and Liam's arm around me, I wished this moment would never end. Too bad he'd never loved me the way I love him.
