11. Bad Timing

He wanted to clean my wounds again but I didn’t want that. I didn’t like looking like seaming weak to other people. Like the first try hadn’t proved to me that I was in no shape of getting up and moving, I put my hands on the edge of the bathtub and tried to lever myself up. The sharp pain I was growing familiar to shot across my ribs and all it earned me was death glare from Liam.

 

He knelt on the floor and put his head on the edge of the bathtub, where my hands had been a few seconds later. I guess he was trying to figure out where to start. But after a while when he didn’t raise his head, I noticed his calm, regular breathing and I knew he had dozen off. With that, since I wasn’t able to get up myself and felt exhausted, I gave in to drowsiness.

 

I woke up to someone shaking me. I opened my eyes. Oh wait, no one was shaking me. I was shaking myself. Why was it so cold? Was something wrong with the heaters? One look at Liam’s worried expression and I found out there was nothing wrong with the heaters, something was wrong with me.

 

I saw Liam raising his hand and I flinched. He paused for a second, his hand hanging in the air. He looked at me with mixture of sadness and worry. Guilt had never been more evident in his eyes before.

 

“I’m not gonna hurt you.” He cooed and brought his hand to my forehead.

 

“Shit Alex, you’re burning up!” He withdrew his hands and looked at me as if I was going to explode any minute.

 

I was burning up? I didn’t feel like that. I felt cold and I was still shivering. I must have caught a cold for not dressing properly or whatever, all I knew was that it wasn’t the best timing.  I just looked at Liam, pacing the little space in the bathroom up and down and, deciding what to do.

 

“We must get you to a doctor.” Liam stopped.

 

I just shook my head. Of course he couldn’t get me to a doctor.

 

“What do you mean?” Liam said while frowning.

 

I wasn’t really in the mood or the state for talking. Couldn’t he understand himself? Apparently not! So I had to explain it to him.

 

“Th… They ask que… questions.” I said hoping he would understand that I’m talking about the bruises on my body.

 

And he did. He took his eyes away from me and stared at the ground for a few seconds.

 He finally got back to his kneeling position again and his hands went to the zipper of my pants, unzipping it before I could stop him.

 

“Wh… what the he… hell are y… you doing?” I managed to say, my teeth chattering.

 

“What does it look like? I’m trying to lower your temperature.”  He said as he tried to get my pants off me. I put my hands on his, trying to stop him. The touch made realize how hot I must be since his hands felt so cold against mine.

 

“Let’s not make it any harder on either of us, Alex!” He managed to say that in a fairly calm voice however I could easily sense the impatience behind it. But somehow I knew he wouldn’t hurt me.

 

“I’m p… perfectly f… fine!” I tried to control the teeth chattering and sound as convincing as possible but I failed miserably.

 

“You look far from fine. Just let me do my job, Alex!” He said and pushed my hands away. As much as I knew he was trying to help me I couldn’t let him do it. I didn’t want him take my clothes off. So I crossed my legs stubbornly in order to stop him.

 

“It’s either this or we have to go to the hospital. So stop being so stubborn and let me help you.” He said in a firm tone.

 

He easily uncrossed my legs, and started pulling my pants down as gently as possible which was not something you would expect from Liam. After a few more moments of struggling off came my pants revealing my already bruised legs. His eyes lingered over them for a few seconds but then he glanced away.

 

He then proceeded to my shirt, which was the tricky part. He pulled up my shirt over my stomach and asked me to raise my arms so that he could get it out and of course I didn’t but this time not because I was trying to be a smart ass, because I couldn’t. Every small movement hurt my ribs. But Liam certainly didn’t get that impression.  So he decided to raise them himself and that was when I cried in pain. He stopped immediately. As I wasn’t one to make sounds when I was in pain he knew something was wrong. He put his hand on my arm.

 

“I’m sorry. I’m sorry I didn’t realize you were so h…” He stopped at that point awkwardly.

 

He stood up, went out of the bathroom and a little later he came back with a pair of scissors. He knelt down again and started cutting my shirt up.

 

“I’ll get you a new one.” Liam said as he took the bits of my shirt away from me. Like I was worried about a worthless shirt!

 

Now I was left in my bra and panties only and Liam could see the extent of damage he had done. He ran his hands up my ribs, his touch was so soft I could barely feel it but still I had to bite my lips in order not to scream in pain. Liam closed his eyes. I could see the pain on his face.

 

He tried to compose himself. His hands went to my panties and tried to pull them down but I stopped him.

 

“Please leave them on.” I begged him.

 

He paused for a second but then gave in and turned on the cold water. It sent a wave of shock throughout my whole body. I started thrashing around and I felt my whole chest was going to explode. Liam held me tightly and prevented me from moving. So I had no choice other than waiting for this to be finished and it did finally after what seemed like forever. After Liam decided that it was enough and my body temperature is lowered he turned off the water.

 

“Feeling better?” He whispered. I could tell he was still concerned.

 

I nodded. I was still shivering but it wasn’t because of the fever anymore, just because of the cold water. He lifted my nearly naked body up and wrapped a white towel around me. I bit my lips so that I wouldn’t scream. I hoped that I hadn’t broken any ribs.

 

“Put me down Liam. I’m heavy.” I was glad the teeth chattering had stopped.

 

“Yeah, right! Heavy!” He scoffed and shook his head but then he continued in a more stern tone as he carried me out of the bathroom. “You really need to eat properly, Alex.”

 

I was so tired I just closed my eyes and decided not to protest anymore. Just tonight, I allowed myself to inhale his cologne and not stop him from carrying me. He laid me on bed gently and I opened my eyes. It wasn’t my room. I looked at him questioningly.

 

“I just wanna make sure nothing happens during the night.” Liam answered as he touched my forehead to check my temperature.

 

I felt so comfortable and tired that I didn’t make any objections. Plus I wasn’t sure if I could make it to my room even if Liam carried me. I needed to stay as motionless as possible.

 

He removed the towel and covered me with a blanket instead. My eyes widened as his hands went under the blanket and to my panties.

 

“You don’t wanna sleep in your wet underwear, do you?” He murmured.

 

Again he had to cut up my bra. He took the remaining of it away off me and pulled down my panties. Even though I knew I was covered in the blanket and he couldn’t see me naked I still felt the blood rushing to my cheeks.

 

After he got rid of my underwear, turned off the light and walked to the bed. I felt the bed dip down beside me and the next second Liam was lying next to me.

 

“Do you need anything?” He whispered in my ear.

 

I just shook my head but I wasn’t exactly sure if I was comfortable sleeping in the same bed with Liam. He sensed something was wrong. He put his hand on my shoulder.

 

“Don’t worry. I’ve got you.” He murmured softly.

 

I wanted to laugh, to tell him he was the reason that I was in this state, he was the one I needed to be worried about but I didn’t because as messed up as it might sound what he said was kind of reassuring and calmed me down. So I just nodded and closed my eyes. I wasn’t sure if I was dreaming or Liam actually leant in and put a soft kiss on my damp hair.

He wanted to clean my wounds again but I didn’t want that. I didn’t like looking like seaming weak to other people. Like the first try hadn’t proved to me that I was in no shape of getting up and moving, I put my hands on the edge of the bathtub and tried to lever myself up.
