One direction Imagines



28. Liam and Lexi

This is for Lexi! Enjoy!

Liam had been away on tour for eight months. We had talked and Skyped every so often and he was always texting me. But I haven't seen him physically. And it did some damage.

The hate on twitter had gotten to be too much. All the names they've called me and threats they've made. It kills me slowly. I'm broken.

The one that got to me the most was the word fat. Everyone said I was fat and I started to believe them. So the only way to get skinny was to not eat. Or so I thought.

I only filled the cabinets with food if girlfriends were coming over. That wasn't often.

I lost pound upon pound but was never satisfied by the number on the scale. Until Liam came home from tour.

He caught me of guard and I didn't have enough time to go shopping. When he came in, at first he was oblivious. But not for long.

"Lexi! How is my love doing? Gosh, I haven't seen you in forever!" When I didn't come running to the door, he got worried.

"Lexi? Where are you? Lexi!" When he saw my skinny figure, he cried out. He came over and lifted me up. He did it with ease.

Liam gasped."What happened to you, Lexi?" I smiled.

"I got skinnier!"

He started to cry.

"Why? Why?" He kept repeating. I didn't know what was wrong. I was skinny like all the models and I thought he wanted that. He carried me into the kitchen and looked in all the cabinets. All he found was granola and air.  In the refrigerator, he found water and orange juice. The sobs shook his shoulders and it was scaring me.

"Liam, why are you upset? All of your fans on twitter said that I needed to be skinnier for you to love me! So I am!" When he looked at me with his puffy, tear-stained cheeks, something inside me broke. I was suddenly very hungry and sad. I realized what I had done to me. To him.

I started to cry.

"I'm so sorry, Liam. I don't know what I did. I don't know." I started to sob. Huge sobs that racked my skinny body.

Liam led me over to the couch and sat down. I was still in his lap. He took my top off. He made and whimpering noise every time he touched a rib. Then he took out his phone and took a picture.

He tweeted it with a caption of 'Look at what all you haters did to my girl! I won't stand for this!'

Seconds later, the first responds started to come.

"OMG! Who would say such things to Lexi! I love her dearly! Best wishes, Lex!'

"Wow. I feel bad for her. I battled this and I need her to know that she can get through this!"

"I love you Liam and Lexi! Get better Lexi!"

Harry, Louis, Zayn, and Niall saw the picture and where soon texting Liam.

"What the heck happened to Lex? Text back soon!" was Zayn's.

"Whoa, mate! What's the pic on twitter!" was Niall's.

"On my way over." Was Harry's. Louis said the same.

"Babe, I love you and don't want to see you like this. Promise me you won't ever do something like this again. Please." Liam's voice was quiet and raspy. I nodded.

"I won't ever do this again. I promise."

*Three Years Later*

I kept that promise. I found out from a doctor that I was five pounds from death. That scared me and I got better. And a few months later, I found out I was pregnant. And the night I was supposed to tell him I was expecting, he proposed to me. Now out wedding is set for July 21st and my due date is December 11th. I'm healthy and happy.

It's three am. And I woke up, craving Starbucks muffins and decaf coffee.

"Liam! Pssst! Liam!" I shook him awake. He woke up with a jolt.

"What? Is it the baby? But we have a few more months!" He said, placing is big hand on my medium stomach.

"No, love. I'm just, hungry. Can we go to Starbucks?" I asked. Even in the dark, I could see him smile.

"Sure, Lexi. Anything for you. And little Lexi."
