As Long As You're Here

Natalie was just a normal teenage girl trying to finish her Senior year without any drama, distractions or anything or the sort. She had finally found her true friend and who she was and what she was gong to do for the rest of her life she didn't want anything changing that. So far things are going good, but she's only about half way through the year, if that. But who knew winter break could change everything.


16. Christmas Eve With Liam


Tomorrow is Christmas and I, or we have decided that I'm going to spend Christmas Eve (today) with Liam and Christmas Day with Jay and the family. I'm driving to Liam's house now, hair curled and waterfall braided with a little black bow barrette and my make-up done all fancy. I'm wearing a strapless black, mini dress with a tulle skirt flowing from the top. The top half covering my chest is completely covered in gold glitter topping off the whole dress. When I get to his house I park my car off to the side as normal and get out. I adjust my dress and check my hair in the window before walking to the front door. I knock on the door as I always and Liam answers the door right away and quickly plants a kiss on my lips. He holds my waist after the kiss before coming in for another. 
"Hello to you too" I say to him giggling slightly. 
"What? I missed you. You look stunning... As always." I blush a bit at his words. But keep eye contact, unlike normal. 
"I missed you too but babe... It's only been two days." I remind him. 
"I know..." He says walking me into his house. As I walk in the smell of turkey, potatoes and cranberries with a faint touch of chocolate fills my head. 
"You made dinner?" I asked him
"Of course! I wanted you all to myself tonight, and I was pretty sure you wanted me all to yourself too. I didn't want to go out with the chance of being interrupted either by security, or by fans. So here we have no problem." I smile at every word coming out of his mouth because this is just what I wanted. He pulls out my chair and I sit down then he pushes my chair in. He goes around the table and sits down. We eat the marvelous dinner Liam made and just chat about everything. As our meal came to a close Liam just looked at me without saying anything. 
"What?" I ask him
"Come live with me" Liam blurts out.
"Huh?" I asked him shocked because he's never seriously brought it up before. 
"I want you to live with me. Here"
"Liam I would love to but after my dad died Jays family brought me in and I would feel bad if I just left. Don't get me wrong I really want to live with you... But I don't know if I can just leave them." 
"Just think about it" he tells me. Our conversations come to a close along with the meal. I walk into the kitchen and Liam and I do the dishes together. After everything is in the dish washer Liam and I sit down on the couch and cuddled together we watch The Grinch Who Stole Christmas while Liam steels a few kisses. At the movies end we both know I have to go but I don't want to. I really want to live with Liam, I really do, I just don't know if I could leave my (might as well be) family. As the time gets later Liam reminds me I have to drive home and get up early tomorrow so I should go. I slowly get up off of the couch and make my way to the door. Liam walks with me and as we get to the door he remembers something. 
"Wait here" he says. He runs upstairs into his room and runs back down to me. "Here" Liam had placed a small envelope in my hands. "Open it" I open the envelope and unfold the letter inside. 


Dear Natalie,

You're all I want for Christmas so don't worry about getting me anything for Christmas but I want to get you something. I know what I'm getting you but you have to come with me to get it. We will have to set up a day soon to get your present together so this is your IOU. 

Love you forever and always,



I fold the letter after I read it and pull Liam into a close hug. I let go and peck his lips.
"I can't wait. Oh and you know how you said I shouldn't worry about getting you anything? Well too late" I say smiling wide.
"Nat... Come on" he says unimpressed. 
"Wait here" I open the door and walk out to my car taking out the wrapped gift I had gotten Liam. I walk back inside and place it in his hands. "Well go on... Open it" I tell him. He rips the wrapping paper and reveals the white box underneath. He opens the box to find a pair of batman pajamas with a batman blanket. A huge smile grows on his face and it lights up like a little kid. He sets the box down and hugs me tightly.
"It's perfect. Thank you" he whispers in my ear. I smile, whisper back you're welcome and our hug breaks. I then realize it’s time for our separation and get a bit sad only to be reminded that I'll see him soon. He hugs me once more and kisses my forehead. I open the door and go to my car and drive home after amazing night with my boy. I get home late that night and head straight upstairs to my room. I change into sweats and a simple shirt and put Liam's letter on my desk then head to Jay’s parents' room. I knock on the door and they call me to come in. I tell them what happened over at Liam's but left out then part about him wanting me to come live with him. After the story they tell me to go to sleep because it’s a big day tomorrow. I hug them both goodbye and go to my room, climb into bed and close my eyes ready for Christmas tomorrow.
