Before You I'll Be Superhuman

Liam Payne fanfic: When Maya and her best friends, Madi, Julia, Noa, and Dani go to a One Direction concert, Maya ends up landing a job as the boys' costume designer. One of the boys falls for her, but will the press change that? What about the fans who don't particularly like Maya? Even if the boys promise, is she still safe? This is appropriate for ages...hmmm...I'm going to say...11 and up. It would be TV14 though...kind of suggestive content...but not really. A PG movie...for now. ;)

2. Backstage

Maya's POV:
My friends were first in line. I ran up to them and showed them around. "This is so cool!" Madi said. "Next time you go to the bathroom, I am sooooo coming with you." Julia said. "Where's Harry? I wanna meet Harry!" Noa said. "Calm down, I think I can get you guys a behind-the-scenes tour,which yes, involves the boys." I said. "Did you guys like the costumes?" I added. "Yes!" All four of my friends said in unison. I smiled. As we were walking around backstage, we heard at the door, "No, but I'm Maya's friend too!"I turned around at my name, and I saw four of my friends from school. "Hey, Paul, it's okay, I know them." As Paul let them in, they ran up to me. "Hey, Makayla! Bella, Paisley, Eliza! I didn't know you guys were here." "Oh my God I love you so much you are amazing oh my God oh my God," Bella said, breathless. "Okay, thanks. Now calm down and breathe." "Hey, um Maya?" Makayla asks. "Yes, everyone will meet the boys soon enough." Just as I said it, I felt very strong arms wrap around me from behind. All eight of my friends faces dropped to form perfect Os for each of their mouths. I turned around and stated straight  into the gorgeous face of Liam James Payne. My face broke out into a smile. "Hey, Liam." I said. "You have a nice group of friends, love." He smiled. "Did he just call her 'love' or am I crazy?" I heard Bella ask Paisley. "Which one of these beautiful ladies is Madi?" A voice asked from behind Liam. I had told Niall about how my best friend Madi loves him so much. "Niall, Madi, Madi, this is the person you won't stop talking about." I introduced them. Madi held out her hand, and Niall took it and spun her around. She giggled, and they took off. "Hey, Maya, do you know this one?" Paul asked from across the room. I saw my good friend Claire at the door. I hadn't seen her in a while, she was at her dad's in Illinois. "Claire!" I exclaimed. I ran over to give her a hug, Liam right behind me. Paul let her through. "I haven't seen you in forever! Is that..." Her jaw dropped at the sight of Liam. "Nice to meet you Claire. I'm Liam." He said and held out his hand. She shook it, her mouth still open. "Hey, love? Do you, Claire, and the rest of your friends want to see the rest of the boys?" "Sure, let's go." I said.
Liam's POV:
Wow, Maya is the nicest, coolest, and prettiest fan I have ever met. It's obvious she doesn't know that. Yeah, okay, she's two years younger, but that's not a big difference, right? But I can't keep my hopes up, she might have a boyfriend. Besides, I just broke up with Danielle, and the press might call me a player. "Come on then, let's go find your friends!" I said. We found all of them in one little group. "No way, Liam would never love her. She is so many things, nice, sweet, and generous, but not attractive." Paisley said. "No way! Paisley, how could you say that?! She is amazayn in every way! Liam would so fall for her!" Dani said. "Definitely, now where is Harry?" Noa said. "She won't stop, will she?" muttered Makayla about Noa. Maya, Claire and I just stood there, not saying a word. I looked over, and Maya had tears in her eyes. "I knew it." She turned and ran. "Wait, no Maya! Don't go!" I chased after her. I bumped into Niall and Madi. "Hey mate, where are you going? I love this girl." Niall said, looking like he was having the best time of his life. He looked at me. "You okay mate?" He asked. "Niall, Madi, look, I'm really sorry, but I have to run. I'll talk to you guys later!" I pushed through the crowd and saw Maya's purple and blue plaid shirt. "Wait, Maya! Wait up!" I yelled. I knew she heard me, but she didn't respond. I lost her. I started wandering around, but then I heard crying inside a door. I opened it, and she was sitting down, hugging her knees. "No, don't cry, I got you. What they said...well...it wasn't true." She looked up at me."Really?" She asked in her beautiful American accent. "Really."
Maya's POV:
"Really?" I asked. "Really." Liam responded, in his adorable British accent. "Now, stand up, wipe those tears and smile. Let's show Paisley how wrong she is." He took my hand, and we walked out holding hands. He was wearing a blue and black plaid shirt, so we looked very similar. "Look at those two love birds. They certainly have chemistry together." He smirked, looking at Niall and Madi  cracking up. They ran over. "Oh my God Maya, I have so much to tell you." Madi said really fast. "I can't wait to hear." I said. " Liam, we'll meet up with you guys later." I added. Niall kissed Madi on the cheek as a goodbye, while Liam kissed mine. I smiled. "Wow, Niall really seems to like you. You make a really cute couple." "Aww, you really think so? Because he asked me to go see the new Batman movie with him. Isn't that great? He said he loved my laugh! Wow, Maya, I really like him, and I think Liam feels the same for you!" Madi told me. I was a little disappointed, because I was hoping Madi, Niall, Liam, and I could double date on Batman. "You really think he likes me?" I asked Madi. "For sure." She said truthfully. "Now let's go find our boys."
Liam's POV:
"So, you really like her, don't you? I think you guys make a really cute couple." I said. "You really think so? Because I just asked her to go see the new Batman movie with me. Isn't that great? She said she loved my laugh! Wow, Liam, I really like her, and I think Maya feels the same for you!" Niall told me. I wanted to ask Maya to the movie, but I didn't know if she had a boyfriend, and besides, I didn't know if Niall wanted to do a double date, or if Maya did them. "You really think she likes me?" I asked Niall. "For sure." He replied truthfully. "Now, let's go find our girls."
Maya's POV:
I was having the best night of my life. As we were searching for the boys, we bumped into Harry. "Hey, Maya. Hey, umm-" "-Madi, my best friend." I said. " Right. Hey Madi. How are you doing?" He said in a very flirtatious voice, after looking her up and down. "She is also Niall's new girlfriend," I added. "Shoot," Harry muttered under his breath loud enough for us to hear him. Madi and I giggled. "All the eligible bachelorettes are over there." I pointed toward my friends and ex-friends. "I'll be over there then, if you need me." He made a beeline for my friends and, well, my other people. He left, and Madi and I continued our search. We saw Niall's polo shirt move through the crowd, Liam right behind him. I reached for my phone to call Liam, but I stopped because I didn't have his number. We followed them, and we lost them. "Darn it, we lost them." Madi said. "No love, you didn't loose us." A cute Irish accent said from behind us. "Niall!" Madi turned and hugged him. Liam offered his hand. "Hey, Maya? Can I...um....well...have your number? For, you know, costume ideas." He asked nervously. " If it's for costume purposes, then feel free to give it to the other boys and Paul. But if it's for other reasons..." I said with a confident smirk. "I'll give it to the other boys, but only I will give you a million hearts around your name." He said. He handed me his phone, and I added my number. He was signing some autographs and taking pictures with fans, so I couldn't resist not looking at his contacts. I saw Danielle<3, and tapped him on the shoulder, "Um, Liam, are you still, um, with Danielle?" I asked, a little worried. "Oh, no, we're just friends, you can delete the heart." He said plainly. Ok. Phew. "Speaking of which, do you have a boyfriend?" He asked. "Not anymore. A couple months ago my best guy friend and I tried it out. It didn't work too well. We decided to just be friends. He's a really nice guy, and I've been looking for a girlfriend for him." I said. "Did Madi go on double dates with you and him?" "Yeah, all the time. I love double dates!" I answered. "Good, because, Niall and I were talking, and we wanted all of us to go on a double date to the Batman movie." He said confidently, but a little shakily. YES. Finally. "YES OF COURSE!" I shrieked. I cleared my throat, embarrassed, and tried again. "Yeah, totally. Sure." I said, red-faced. Liam was holding back a laugh. "Perfect. I'll text you the details. But now, I want a new wallpaper, so smile!" He took a picture of us. "Send that to me, will you?" I got almost instantly a text: Love you, set this as your lock screen.This has been the best night ever. <3 -Liam. I set the picture as my lock screen. My home screen was a picture of Liam I found off the Internet. I showed it to him, and he said, "How about we give you and even better picture?" I took a picture of him making a heart with his hands. New home screen. "Hey, let's go see what Harry's up to. Maybe one of my friends is his new-" "-Hey Maya! Do you know this girl? Her name is Noa. She is so sweet!" Harry said, holding my friend's hand. Harry leaned forward and whispered, "I can't tell her anything though. She knows it all. She even knows what color my lucky underwear is!" Liam and I exchanged looks and started laughing hysterically. "Okay, we'll see you guys later!" I said to Harry and Noa. Liam and I kept walking.
Liam's POV:
As we were walking, I saw the girl who made Maya cry earlier. I had an idea. We kept walking, and as soon as they could see us, I kissed Maya. Hard. On the lips. The two girls turned around, and thankfully, Maya was kissing back. She wrapped her arms around my neck. The other girls looked shocked.
Maya's POV:
He kissed me. Just like that, no warning. I was shocked, but I kissed back. I opened my eye just a bit to see Bella and Paisley looking shocked. That's what they get. All the sudden, a bright light flashed in my face. Liam turned me around, grabbed my hand, and ran. We grabbed Niall, Madi, Noa, Harry, and then we saw Zayn and my friend Dani, too. Louis saw us and came after us. We went to Liam's closet (which was the size of my room, which was big) and locked the door. "What just happened?" Madi asked, panting. "Paparazzi saw Maya and me, well, making out, and we didn't want any of you guys on the front page." Liam said. "You guys might be safe, but Liam and I aren't.
Oh, and by the way, Liam, you are a great kisser. Remember, Bella and Paisley saw us.  They know who I am. We're screwed." I said. "Maybe they won't tell." Madi and Niall said in unison. They cracked up. "At least we're safe here, Noa said."I have an idea. Since everyone already knows I'm with Elenour, I'll step out, get some service, call Paul, and we can escape through here by tour bus." Louis said. We all nodded. Louis slipped out, and we locked the door quickly behind him. We listened. "Hey, Paul? (pause) Yeah. Bus route #2. (pause) Paparazzi. (pause)Uh huh.(pause) Yeah. Okay, thanks, bye. Open the door!" We opened the door. "5 minutes." He said. I started looking through Liam's drawers. Socks, shirts, "WAIT!!! NOT THAT ONE!" Liam grabbed me. "Wow. Lemme guess. Underwear?" I said. "Yeah um, so Zayn, who's the girl?" Liam asked, trying to change the subject. "This is Dani. She's Maya's good friend." Zayn said. Dani giggled. "No she's not my good friend. She's my best friend. Especially after what she did for me, that was so nice and brave, standing up to Bella and Paisley. You are perfect for Zayn." I hugged her. "Hey, no problem. Without you, I wouldn't have Zayn to begin with." She said. We heard something outside. "That's the bus." Louis said. We snuck outside and into the bus.
Liam's POV:
We sat down talking. Maya got up and said she had to call her mum. Madi, Noa, and Dani did the same. So it was just the boys and me. "Is anyone pretending to like their girlfriends?" Louis asked. Harry looked around, then raised his hand. "She wouldn't stop talking to me and clinging to me, so to shut her up, I told her to be my girlfriend. She screamed and was like, 'YES, YES,YES HARRY I LOVE YOU SO FRIKIN MUCH OH MY GOSH' so it didn't work the way I had planned. I really do like Maya's friend Julia, though." I said, " Well, I love Maya unconditionally. She is perfect, but doesn't know it." I said. "And I love Eleanor!" Louis said. "Madi is just like me. Funny and sweet. I love her, too." Niall said. "Dani just fits my perfect girl description." Zayn said quietly.
Maya's POV:
We were all talking, and I went to call my mom about what happened. She answered on the first ring. " Hey Maya, I'll be there in 45 minutes. Are you having fun?" she said. "Mom, no need for that. One Direction is driving me home. By the way, I work for them now." "Okay, wait, WHAT?!" she screamed. I told her the whole story, and she was happy for me. "I'll be home a little after midnight. I promise."Maya, it's okay if you spend the night at one of your friends houses, or the tour bus IN YOUR OWN BED IN YOUR OWN ROOM WITH NOBODY ELSE OF THE OPPOSITE GENDER. After all, you are 18 in a couple days. Just call or text where you are." she said. "Of course mom, I promise. I'll text you later. Bye, I love you!" I hung up. I went into the lounge but stopped myself when I heard Louis ask if anyone was pretending to like their girlfriends. Harry raised his hand. I listened and then Liam said, " Well, I love Maya unconditionally. She is perfect, but doesn't know it." I listened to the rest, then walked in. "So, can we go pick up my other friends? Maybe go to dinner?" I said as if I hadn't heard anything. "Yeah, okay. Text them to wait outside. We don't want to be seen." Zayn said. I texted them, and we picked them up. "Hey, Harry? Can I talk to you?" I said. "Sure thing." he said. We walked into a room and I asked him about Noa. "Don't tell her, she's a sweet girl, but quite loud and annoying." He said. "Harry, break up with her. Tell her she's too young. Then go for Julia, who's only a year younger than you." I said. "Thanks Maya, I'm gonna do that now!" He left, and went for Noa. "What was that about?" Liam asked. "Just watch Noa's face." I said. She was smiling, then her face just fell. "HARRY HOW COULD YOU?!" She yelled. He put his hand on her shoulder and said, "Not tonight. Maybe in a couple of years." He said. She calmed down. Niall and Madi were giggling, then they went into another room. They were gone for about 20 minutes, and they came out with their hair messed up but clothes still perfectly intact. "Looks like you two had some fun," I said, smirking. They both nodded. We all laughed, because obviously they were completely oblivious to what we really meant. We had an awkward silence, but then Liam broke it by saying, "Maya, can I talk to you?" "Sure Liam." I said.
Liam's POV:
I was going to tell her I love her. She needed to know that she is perfect in every way. I didn't know how to put it, so I decided to sing it. I took her into another room, shut the door, sat down and motioned for her to sit down next to me. She sat. "Look Maya, I just wanted to let you know that I love you. I also wanted you to know that, well, um..." I started singing. "From the moment I met you, everything changed, I knew I had to get you, whatever the pain. I had to take you and make you mine." I sang the entire song for her, knowing it was her favorite song of ours. She was smiling and laughing. I finished the song, and she said, " I wish I could sing so well that I could sing a song back, but for now this will have to do." Maya kissed me. In between breaths, she murmured, "Promise I'm not just a night fling," "Promise." I murmured back. As we kissed, we heard Harry say from the lounge, "Hey Liam, Toy Story 3 is on!" I bounced up, grabbed her hand, and dragged her to the couch. Madi and Niall were already snuggled up in the corner of the couch, so Maya and I took the other end. Louis gave us a bowl of popcorn to share, and we kissed and ate and watched. Even with Danielle, I never liked watching Toy Story 3 more. The film ended, and I asked, "I'm guessing you have to go home now." "My mom said I could stay the night at one of my friend's houses or I could stay on the tour bus, in my own bed in my own room. "Oh, my mom said the same. Can I stay with Maya?" Madi asked. "Okay, we have our bags packed for a sleepover anyways." Maya said. "Perfect! But we have to drive your friends home first." I said.
