A World Away.

Zayn Malik and Liam Payne are part of the hottest boy band in the world. They're doing great. Albums and tickets are selling out like a spreading wild fire. Teen girls are all over them. But when a government of Elders takes over the world and molds it into the 'perfect democracy', Liam, Harry, Niall, Louis and Zayn are all flung to the far corners of the world, memories wiped clean of each other. Can Liam, the only one with memory of Zayn and the boys, get things ALL back to normal? Or will they be lost in this erratic dimension forever?


6. The Awakening

Liam woke up with a head ache. His whole body numb with a dull pain. He turned his body over and came face to face with his bright-eyed girlfriend, Danielle.

"Morning," Dani whispered.

"Morning." Liam replied, kissing her cheek.

"Want some breakfast? I made waffles." Danielle said.

"Mmm, sounds great." Liam agreed. He lifted himself out of bed and watched as Danielle left the room. He dragged his achy body to the shower and turned on the water, stripping off his pajamas. Liam scrubbed the sweat and dirt off himself from last night's...activities...then went to grab the new shampoo Danielle said he 'just had to try' when he stopped. On the front of the bottle was a man, a man he could've sworn on his life he knew. Tan skin, dark feathery hair, blue eyes. Something with...an 'L' maybe? He didn't know. He shrugged it off and finished his shower.

"Li?" he heard Danielle call.

"Hmm?" he answered while drying his buzzed hair with a towel.

"How do you want your waffles? Chocolate chip or blueberry?"

"Blueberry, please!"

Wait a minute. Someone else he knew liked that. Nick or something like that? Again he shrugged it off and got dressed. A red plaid shirt and khaki skinny jeans.

"BREAKFAST!" Danielle called.

"COMING!" Liam called back. He rushed down stairs and sat at the table eating his breakfast as Dani turned on the tv. It was some gossip news show about 'hot celebs' and a recent scandal, involving some celebrity Liam didn't know.

"The young girlfriend of the hot male celebrity was seen kissing another man! We asked Mr. Styles what he thought of the situation but he had no comment."

Liam choked on his orange juice at that last statement. 'Styles? Why does that sound so familiar?' Liam thought.

"Liam, honey? You ok?" Daniella asked.

"Y-Yeah. Hey, who is that report about?"

"Oh, Caroline Flack and Harry Styles."

"Do we...know Harry Styles?"

"What?!" Danielle laughed. "Of course not! If we did do you think we'd be as poor as we are now?"

"I...guess not." Liam said. However, he knew that name and he was determine to find out how.

Liam walked on the street and stared out at the skyline. He wished he knew where he knew Harry Styles and that man on the bottle from...

"Oh come on! I've got to know them from somewhere!" Liam said to himself. He strolled back into his apartment. He's home early from work today. "Hi, Dani! I'm home ea—" he stopped. Danielle was sitting on the couch with another man. From where he was standing it looked like they were trying to eat each other's faces. "What the fuck is going on here?!"

"Liam! It isn't...it's not..." Danielle gasped.

"Get out of my house! NOW!" Liam shouted at her.

"What? Liam, please, I need you! I can't live on my own! I have no money!" Danielle stuttered. The man had left as soon as Liam had made his presents clear.

"Well, you should have thought of that before you cheated! Get out, you bitch!" Liam yelled. Danielle grabbed her purse and left.

Liam spent the rest of the day sobbing in his room. He wished he could leave this god-forsaken community. Live beyond the wall that shields them from the Outside. 'To shield us from danger.' was the excuse the Elders used. Liam thought that was a huge load of bull-shit. Honestly. How much different could the Outside be from the community?

Liam's thoughts were interrupted by a knock at the door. 'Probably Danielle, begging to come back,' Liam thought, 'Maybe I should let her talk.' He stood and walked to the door. But when he opened it, it wasn't Danielle. Actually, it wasn't a girl at all. It was a boy with died blonde hair and vibrant blue eyes. "Hello, mate." he spoke with a thick Irish accent. "My name's Niall Horan. I was going for a walk and...I'm really quite hungry...I was um..."

"Of course! Please!" Liam motioned for the boy to come in. He thought it was weird, not many people invite strangers to eat at their house, but this boy was so innocent and childlike, it was hard to say no.

"Thanks," the boy said rubbing his hands together to warm them.

"No problem." Liam replied. The boy turned and Liam got a good first look at him. 'Wow!' Liam thought, 'he looks so familiar!'

"Hey, do I...kn-know you? You seem really..." Niall started.

"Familiar?" Liam finished. "Yeah, I know what you mean."

"But I have no idea where I know you from..."

"Well, I'm sure it will come to us."

Niall nodded and followed Liam up the stairs.

"I'm Liam by the way. Liam Payne." Liam said.

"Nice to meet you, Mr. Payne."

"I have some left over waffles. Blueberry, if you want them." Liam suggested.

"Aw, yeah!" Niall said.

Liam chuckled and gave Niall the waffles.

"Yeah, buddy." Niall said and started scarfing down his food.

'Yeah, buddy. Yeah, buddy. Yeah, buddy.' Niall's words rang through Liam's head. Then images of him, Niall, the shampoo-boy, and Harry Styles sitting in what looked like a radio station interview.

Liam's head started spinning and he held onto the counter to steady himself.

"Um...Mr.Payne?" Niall reached out and grabbed Liam's arm. He froze. He knew this guy. It was Liam! His best friend. His brother! "Liam?"

"Niall? You remember?" Liam asked.

"Of course I do!" Niall exclaimed, hugging Liam. Liam hugged back and nearly broke into tears.

"You remember anyone else?" Niall asked.

"Yeah, Harry and Louis."


"I don't know..."

"Something with a 'Z'?"

"I think so..."

Niall shook his head. "We need to find Harry and Louis."

"Yeah." Liam said cleaning the mess and grabbing his phone. "Let's go. Oh, and Niall?"


"I missed you."

"I missed you too buddy."

They then got into Liam's car and set off to find Harry, Louis and the mystery man.
