Stole My Heart

~Tia Perez vowed never to fall in love. While running away from her school in Wolverhampton she bumps into the world famous Liam Payne. Literally. They become friends but Liam wants something more. Will he open her up to the idea of love?


1. Love and Best Friends

Love. The four letter word made me want to vomit. All my life I've witnessed people 'fall in love' and 'get their hearts broken'. Geez, after experiencing it over and over again they still make the same mistakes.  I, Tia Melinda Perez am never to 'fall in love'. Call me bitter, but I only speak the truth. It's a waste of time and I'm done.

I combed through my natural blonde hair with a plastic brush. Beauty and intelligence is everything. You could say I'm a tease, but I don't really care. I've got my life planned out, get a business degree, then open a chain of clothing stores, and become Britans favorite socialite. After fixing my hair I applied make up, bright red lipstick, and black eyeliner. 

Just then a group of girls entered the restroom. " Tia. What happened to you?" one asked. I recognized her once I saw the bracelet on her left  arm. Megan Crest, my ex-best friend looked completely different. Her once choppy black scene hair was now auburn and in a bob. 

"What happened to me?" I felt slightly offended, " What happened to you?" 

" I decided to meet new people. These are-" she began.

" Cheerleaders. And your hanging out with them because your dating Toby." I finished, looking into the mirror once more. Toby is the football teams quarterback. 

"No. Because they UNDERSTAND me." she emphasized the word 'understand'.

"Bitch." I muttered under my breath.

"Jealous much, freak?" The small Asian girl said. They all giggled. That was 100% childish. Does it look like I care? I rolled my eyes then tried to push my way through them. Another grabbed my wrist. She pulled me so I could face them. 

"We're not done talking to you."  the girl said tightening her grip. I attempted to pull away but she wouldn't budge. 

" I have to get home." I stated taking a deep breath. " How do I explain to my mum I got caught up in the bathroom by a bunch of sluts?"

I saw that Megan backed away.  She isn't going to stop them? What did I ever do to deserve this? 

The Asian one pulled my hair, I fell to the ground. All of a sudden the one who held my wrist kicked me in the stomach. I felt someone's sharp stiletto heel dig into my flesh. They kept on. I wasn't going to fight back. I was better than that. 

"Meg!" I called out in agony. She still stood their with her arms crossed. "Meg!" 

I felt.. Betrayed. Megan was there for me since Kindergarden, vice-versa. I remember, freshmen year when people started calling her fag and emo. I STOOD UP FOR HER. What ever happened to BEST FRIENDS FOREVER?

"Forget it guys." Megan demanded, " Let's get out of here. I don't have time to watch you beat up that LOSER." The words hurt like knives. 

They immediately stopped leaving me on the ground. I was alone once again. I got up and looked at myself in the mirror. I went from perfection to hell within 10 minutes. I collected my bag then ran out of the bathroom then through the hallway. "Ms. Perez! No running in the hallway!" the librarian scolded. I ignored her, tears running down my face. I burst out the front door. Even though the pain was unbearable I still ran. I needed to get away. 

"Oof!" I fell to the floor as I bumped into a boy wearing sunglasses. I sat there unable to get up. He held out his hand. I took it and stood up. I looked down to see that blood stained my shirt. 

"Are you okay?" 

"No." I replied, " Does it look like it?" He took off his sunglasses, and reached to examine my wounds. Oh. My. It was Liam Payne. LIAM PAYNE OF THE ONE DIRECTION. I'm not a total fan, but he's a pretty good singer.

"Your Liam Payne." I blurted out, pointing at him. I felt like a complete idiot.

"Yes. And Your...."

"Tia Perez." 

" You should really check that out." he referred to my deep cuts, scars, and bruises. 

" Yeah..." I mummbled.

" Do you need a lift?" he questioned. " I can drive you wherever." 

Mum always told me not to get into cars with strange men. Liam Payne is well.. Famous, so that doesn't really count. And Socialites get publicity, the paps are always around. Being with Liam could get me some serious popularity.

"Uh sure. Could you drive me to 5680 East Ridge Dr." There I go, giving my address to someone I only know by face. I should know better.. But it beats bleeding to death by running. I followed him to his car. It was a Van... Dear lord.

"Let's go." he opened my door. I checked behind my seat to see if anyone was in the back. Luckily it was just me. He got in from the drivers side and we were off. After moments of silence Liam spoke:
"What happened?"

Why not? I'll just tell him the story. " I got beat up in the girls restroom by cheerleaders." 

He started to laugh, " Really?" 

"Um, Yes!" 

"You seem like you could be one yourself." 

"A cheerleader? I'm not going to waste my time dancing in mini-skirts and belly shirts." I shot back.

"Relax. It was meant to be a compliment."

"Well then.. Thank you.......... Stop right here." I said. 

He pulled over in front of a small two bedroom house. " We should hang out some time." he told me. 

"As FRIENDS." I handed him my phone so he could program his number, he did the same. 

"Bye." he said before I shut the door. It's been a long day... Mum is going to freak.
