15. Chapter 14

(Lucy's POV)

"Liam. Do you know what you're getting yourself into?" I asked.

We were in the living room of our apartment. I was sitting cross-legged on the couch with a drowsy Aiden in my arms while Liam was playing with Mia on the floor.

He looked up at me, confused. "what do you mean?"

"nothing," I mumbled, looking down at the sleeping boy in my arms. "I'm going to put him down, I'll come back for Mia in a minute."

The little girl looked up at the mention of her name. She flashed me a goofy little smile and went back to the blocks she was playing with. I slowly rose from the couch and carried Aiden into his room, laying him down before returning to the living room.

"are you ready to go na'nite little missy?" I said, scooping Mia into my arms as Liam made his way to the kitchen.

She shook her head. "nooooooooo!"

"yes."

She let out a little 'hmph', crossing her arms and looking down. I reached forward to move the strawberry blonde curls, that had cascaded over her face, away. 

"c'mon... don't be stubborn."

I carried her to the room and laid her down in her crib after placing a kiss on her forehead. When I got to the door I looked back. Pausing for a moment to look at the children that changed my life.

I flipped off the light and made my way to find Liam.

"hey babe?" I said, poking my head into the kitchen.

"yeah?" he asked, looking up from the magazine article he was reading.

I made my way to the counter where he was sitting. "whatcha reading?" I asked, placing a kiss on his cheek.

"some stupid article about us," he muttered.

I immediately turned around, not even considering reading it. "ok well I'm going to get a shower, ok?" I asked, pausing at the door. 

His face flashed with uncertainty for a moment before nodding his head. "alright."

I sighed as I left the kitchen. 

Will I ever be trusted?

I made my way through our bedroom and into the bathroom, looking at reflection in the mirror. There were deep purple bags under my eyes with my long blonde hair flying everywhere. Slowly I grabbed the hem of my t-shirt, lifting it up to reveal my stomach. I absentmindedly traced the lightening bolt that had been carved into my skin.

Suddenly, I felt warm arms wrap around my waist. I immediately shoved my shirt down, hiding my imperfection.

"no," Liam whispered, pulling the bottom of my shirt back up to just below my bust and using his free hand to trace it. "I don't want you to hide it from me anymore."

Using my hands, I pulled my shirt back down, turning in his arms to face him, I wrap my arms around his neck before he rests his forehead against mine. 

"Liam."

"Lucy?"

"are you sure you want this?" I ask skeptically.

He pulled his head back, looking at me with confusion. "want what?"

"to marry me." I said, looking down. "I'm broken... Way beyond repair. I might not be able to give you everything you want..." I said softly.

He placed a finger under my chin, pulling my eyes back to his. "Lucy. You ARE everything I will ever want."

I gave him a small smile and rose to my toes, placing a small, loving kiss on his lips. "I love you."

"I love you, too."

It was quiet for a moment, both of us lost in our own worlds, before he spoke. "how about, you start a bath. Make it warm. And there's bubbles in the cabinet here," he said, releasing me and pulling down the containers from the cabinet. "and put your hair up so it doesn't get wet. I'm going to go get your favorite wine from the kitchen and join you."

I slowly nodded my head before his warmth disappeared. After turning on the warm water and pouring in the bubbles, I went back into the bedroom. At my dresser, I pulled out a pair of hot pink swimsuit bottoms, replacing my clothes with them, and a matching hot pink bikini top with black lace. I heard Liam slip into the bathroom behind me before quickly pulling my hair into a very high messy bun and slipping into a soft white robe before following him.

He was sitting in the bathtub, water off, and bubbles going to his mid chest. "are you coming in?" he asked, once he saw me in the doorway.

I nodded before slowly taking the robe off again and climbing in, placing myself between his legs.

"here," he said, handing my a wine glass. "now sit forward... A relax."

I sat forward as he said and relaxed when his hands found my shoulders. He slowly kneaded at the knots at he worked his way down my back, and up again, quietly humming just enough for me to hear the song.

'To all your friends you're delirious
So consumed in all your doom
Trying hard to fill the emptiness
The pieces gone, left the puzzle undone
That's the way it is

You are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can't bring you down
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can't bring you down, oh, no'

Soon, his humming stopped. I thought because he didn't know the lyrics, but when I heard him speak, I knew I was wrong.

"Lucy... What happened to your parents?"

I felt myself tense. "M-my parents?"

"yes. You never talk about them. Do you even know what happened to them?"

"I-I–"

*knock*knock*knock*

"I'll get it!" I almost yelled, setting my glass down before jumping out of the tub and throwing my robe on. Not caring that my legs were still soaked, I made my way to the door and opened it.

"oh my god"
