Save You Tonight

Elizabeth used to be a normal girl, until her parents died in a car accident. She became more silent, and pushed anyone that tried to help her away. A friend of the family was the only one capable of helping her. She started living with her grandmother, and she seemed to be recovering, but her grandmother caught a disease and passed away. She moved alone, left Zayn and became a totally different person. She thought everything was over for her, that her life wouldn't make sense anymore, until one day, she meets a guy, that changes her life forever.


6. You Get What You Give


Elizabeth’s P.O.V


I spent the night with Travis. Not because I wanted to, but because I feared him. But I wasn’t only afraid he would do something to me, I was mostly afraid he would hurt Liam badly. Maybe he already had. I just didn’t want Liam to think I chose Travis over him; I wouldn’t choose him over anyone. Liam was a really nice guy and he didn’t deserve anything that Travis had done to him, and it was my entire fault. I felt so guilty. I would understand if he didn’t talk to me ever again, I mean, I deserved it. He was a good person and didn’t need me to ruin his life or anything, I just needed to apologize, but I couldn’t see him. I’m not strong enough to stand in front of him and look him in his eyes with any dignity left. I decided to talk to Zayn. 


Zayn’s P.O.V


I was watching TV at my place alone, kinda bored actually. I called Liam and asked him if he wanted to hang out, and some minutes later, I got a call from Lizzie. 


“Hey” I said in a soft voice, I wasn’t very sure about how to act after what had happened with her and Liam.


“Hi Zayn” she said and I could hear her voice was trembling “I need to talk to you. Can I trust you?”


“O-of course you can. Just come to my place as fast as you can.” 


I waited for her and then ten minutes later the bell rung. I opened the door and she was standing there, with her black boots and tight jeans. She wasn’t wearing too much make-up and I could see that she had been crying. “Come in” I said and gestured her to come in. We sat in the couch. “Listen Lizzie, I know what happened between Liam and you and-” I was saying as she cut me off. She just started talking, spitting words out as though as she couldn’t stop, while tears streamed down her cheeks. 


“I just didn’t know what to do. Everything was going grate and then he started texting me and we wanted to get out, but he was there! He was there and I was paralyzed and shocked and scared, and I didn’t know what the fuck to do. And then, all of a sudden he was attacking Liam and I just wanted him to stop but he wouldn’t unless I left with him, so I did. But I didn’t want to, I just wanted Liam to be ok and it seemed like the only way-” she said almost as if she had rehearsed it.


“Wait! So you didn’t leave because you preferred him over Liam?” I asked as my eyes lighted up a bit.


“NO! Of course not! I would never and I just don’t want Liam to think that because it is NOT true at all. But now he just hates me. Just please, Zayn you have to tell him that I’m sorry. I have to go, I’m sorry. I just can’t get in other people’s life like you and expect my life to just get better. This is all my fault and now I have to deal with the consequences. That’s how life is. You get what you give.” She said standing up, but I grabbed her arm and pulled her into a tight hug. 


“Shhh” I whispered “Just stop, you’re not going anywhere. I won’t let you. I can’t afford to lose you again. You still can change. This isn’t how you’re supposed to be. It isn’t your fault, everything that you’ve been through. So stop blaming yourself. Lizzie I love you, I always have and I want you back. You’re part of my family so stop. Please.” She cried on my shoulder for a few minutes more, and we just stayed there in silence. 


Suddenly, the door opened. “Hey man, it was open so-” Liam was standing next to the door and stopped talking when he saw me and Lizzie. I had completely forgotten he was coming! 


Elizabeth’s P.O.V

He held me as I cried into his shirt. It had been a long time since I cried this much. I was really glad I talked to someone about this, and I was really glad I could count on Zayn, but I still didn’t feel better.


Suddenly I heard the door open, and turned around to see a surprised Liam staring at me. I needed to say something, anything. But the words just wouldn’t come out. I felt as if someone had cut my tongue off and I couldn’t make any sound at all; apart from the noise of me gasping for air from all the sobbing. We stared into each other’s eyes. Everything was completely silent and I could literally hear him breath even though he was several metres apart.


And two seconds later, he was gone.


I looked at Zayn and he looked confused. “Liz” he said “I-I’m sorry. I forgot he was coming.”


I stood up and hurried to the door, I had stopped crying now, and all I could think about was that I needed to talk to Liam. I didn’t exactly know what I was going to tell him, but I needed to fix what I did. I fucked things up and this was my opportunity to make everything better. I wouldn’t blame Liam if he didn’t want to ever talk to me again, but he at least needed to know the truth.

I saw him waiting for the elevator.


Liam’s P.O.V


“Liam, wait” I heard her say as she walked towards me. I rolled my eyes and kept staring at the elevator door that was taking way too long to open. “Please, let me explain” I heard her again and she was much closer now. 


One side of me wanted to listen to what she had to say. One side of me wanted to hold her close as she cried while whispering that everything was going to be fine. But I couldn’t. She had hurt me, my pride and my feelings. And I didn’t want to see her nor talk to her. She left me wounded and bleeding on the floor, as she left with another guy. 


So when the elevator door swung open I didn’t hesitate for a second and got in.  But as soon as the doors started closing again and I thought I had gotten rid of her, she squeezed through the small place between the doors and was in too.
