Back For You

Amelia had recently turned 16 and was being forced to move from her lifelong home. When she gets to her new home she meets Liam Payne, her neighbor. But when he becomes big and famous and leaves her in the dust she tries to forget him. Which is unsuccessful when he comes to visit and brings something (or someone) with him.


3. Summer of '12

After The X-Factor, One Direction got more famous and only about three months after the competition ended the Paynes moved across town, which in a way was a good thing. Ever since Liam left, I got closer to some other people at my school and I still kept in touch with my friends from Dublin, but we weren't that close anymore. I was out of school now and I was working at a local coffee shop. For the past two years I've been trying to avoid everything having to do with Liam and that damn band. It seems like I just cannot get Liam out of my life completely, considering his face is everywhere and his voice is always on the radio. I was driving home from work when my phone started to ring. "Hello?"

"Lia! Have you been on Twitter today?" I heard my best friend Penny ask frantically through the phone.

"No, why?" I asked curiously. What was going on?

"Check it now!" She ordered sounding nervous, but excited.

"I'm driving so I'll do it when I get home. Do you want to come over?" I asked knowing what the answer would be. I was right she said yes and we hung up. I wonder what was so big on Twitter. I pulled into the driveway and turned my car off. I walked into the house and set my purse and keys on the table in the entryway. "Penny?" I called.

"I'm in here!" I heard from the kitchen. Of course she's in the kitchen, she's always eating. "So what was so urgent?" I asked opening the fridge and looking for a snack.

"You'll have to look for yourself." She said cryptically. I slowly pulled out an orange, because whenever she said something like that it wasn't good. I quickly turned my phone on and went to Twitter. I didn't see anything odd...

"What am I looking for?" I asked scrolling through my mentions. "It's not in your mentions. Let me get to it." Penny grabbed my phone. She searched something and scrolled a little, when she found whatever she was looking for she thrust my phone in my face. I took my phone and held it far enough away from my face so I could read it. I read it and I did not like it.

"Liam's... Liam's coming... back?" I asked shocked and started freaking out on the inside. "Calm down, Amelia." She said guiding me to a chair. I hurt footsteps coming down the stairs and I looked up, Desmond was standing in the doorway with a worried look on his face.

"Millie, what's the matter?" He asked getting to the chair in two quick, long strides. "Liam's coming to visit." I said with a blank expression. I will admit I did have feelings, strong feelings, for him once, but that was in the past.

"You'll be fine, Amelia." He said reassuringly, he pulled her into a hug.

"What if we see each other and it's all awkward? What if he doesn't even remember me?" I asked nervously.

"Oh please, of course he'll remember you and it'll only be awkward if you make it awkward." Penny said smiling softly.

"You're right. I'm getting worked up over nothing. I mean, it's not like he was my best friend that I'd gotten major feelings for and only realized it right before he started his career as a world famous singer!" I said sarcastically.

"Amelia, Penny is right. You'll be fine, we don't even know if you'll see him." Desmond said logically.

"Right, okay." I took a deep breath and stood up. "So what's for dinner?"

"Well mum and dad aren't going to be home until late tonight, so whatever you want." Desmond replied. "I want tacos!" I exclaimed.

"Tacos sound good to me." Penny said. "Do you guys have ingredients for tacos?" I looked and gathered all we needed to make tacos. I started cooking the meat and Penny and Des got the sour cream, tomatoes, cheese, etc. Penny put the shells in the oven and five minutes later we were sitting in the living room eating tacos. "What movie do you girls want to watch?" Des asked us, looking through our movies.

"How about The Vow?" Penny suggested. "But that's a girl movie!" Desmond complained, but we know that he loves sappy movies as much as we do. "Put it in, Des!" Penny ordered giggling.

Desmond put it in and we all snuggled on the couch, Penny and Desmond were quite close if I do say so myself. I knew Penny had liked my brother and I didn't think anything would happen between them, but as of late they had seemed to be a bit "friendly" with each other. It'd be weird if they started to go out but at the same time kind of cute.

"Oh god, she never remembered!" Penny said through tears. "I know! It's not fair!" I said also crying. Desmond looked at us like we were crazy, but I saw his bloodshot eyes.

"Des, it's us, you can cry if you want." I teased and ruffled his chestnut brown curls. "Oh shut up, Amelia." He said glancing at Penny, obviously to see if she was laughing. Oh god, the sexual tension in this room.

"I have to use the loo, I'll be back." I left the room as quick as I could without it being noticeable that I was uncomfortable. I went to get my phone from the kitchen and went to my room and called my friend, Alice.

"Hello?" She answered. "Oh my god, Alice. My brother and Penny are being all weird again!" I whisper-yelled.

"Oh awkward. Do you want me to come over so you're not alone?" She asked, knowing that I'd say yes. She said she'd be here in about ten minutes. I went back downstairs and saw Desmond and Penny looking a bit flushed. "Um, what happened while I was gone?" I asked suspiciously.

"Oh, um, nothing..." Penny said blushing a bright red. "Sure. 'Nothing'" I said putting air quotes around nothing. "Shut up." Penny grumbled.

"Anyway Alice is coming over in a few minutes. Do you want to spend the night? With me?" I added smirking. Penny's eyes widened but she said yes nonetheless.

I heard the doorbell and opened the door expecting to see Alice but instead I saw the last person I wanted to see right now. Mr. Liam James Payne.
