5. The Thunderstorm

Liam's Pov.

It was around midnight when I heard a faint knock on my door and it open and a face appear.

"Delihla?"

"Yeah?" she asked shakily as if she had been crying.

"Whats wrong, love?"

"Thunderstorms scare the crap out of me and there is a lot that goes behind it too.... But could Isleep in here tonight? Sorry it probably sounds childish but i am really freaked out right now." she said with tears starting to stream down her face again.

"Of course I don't mind love! Come here!" I lifted up the blanket for her. She ran over and jumped in like a little child. I pulled her into my arms trying to comfort her. I felt her hot tears fall on to my bare chest.

"Why are you so afraid of thunderstorms?" I asked her gently as Istroked her hair. She lifted her head to face me tears still streaming down her cheeks.

"When I was little a lightning bolt struck my house and it burnt down. It was like one of those one in a million chance things but it happened and everything I loved was destroyed. Then after the house burnt down my family really broke down. My parents blamed me for it happening to us. It wasnt my fault though! But they still made my life a living hell because of it. They became alchoholics. They abused me almost every day until they left me. I have never touched alchohol even though I am of age because of them. Anyways, every night that there was a thunderstorm they left for about three days. The first few times I was scared then I began to recognize the pattern. I have no idea where they went or why they always chose to leave then. Those days became my only days of happiness because they couldnt hurt me then. But there was one night when I was 17 and there was a big storm and my dad broke a chair leg and started beating me with it. It tore up the skin on my back and it was bleeding heavily. They left like they always did but that time they never came back that time. It was the worst they had ever done to me. They have scarred me for life with the memories of what they did to me. The accident still freaks me out too. Now I always get nightmares about them, but everything is always worse when there is a thunderstorm."

That broke my heart that anyone would ever treat her that way. I had tears streaming down my face because of how real it all was. She looked up at me tears streaming down her face too. i pulled her in agaist me chest adn she wrapped her arms around me too. I kissed her head.

"I wont let anyone hurt you. I promise." I wispered to her. She layed her head on my chest and relaxed into my arms. I wanted to protect her from everything. I wanted to her to be mine.

Delihla's Pov.

It felt so good to get everything off my chest. me and Liam just layed there. I felt so safe in his arms.

~~Next Morning~~

I woke up on Liam's chest. he was still asleep. I was so happy I met him. He is honestly the kindest person I ever met. I feel like he actually cared. I smiled to myself.

"Good morning beautiful!" a voice said breaking my thoughts.

"Morning!" I said back cheerfully. "What's for breakfast?"

"Oh yeah! We need to go grocery shopping! Go get out of your pajamas and lets go right now!"
