Love of the Sea (Liam Payne Fanfic)

The ocean has always been Cleo's love, but when she finds someone who she loves even more... she knows it's a huge risk. You see, Cleo isn't exactly normal. She's... different to say the least. Part fish to be more exact. Yes... Cleo is a mermaid, and Liam is in the biggest boy band in the world, he has everyone drooling over him, so why does he fall in love with her? Can she trust him with her secret? Or will he totally betray her? All these questions buzz through Cleo's head... and she knows that this changes her life.


11. Back for You

Cleo's POV


I stand in the hallway and Bellas mom emerges. "Hey, sweetie!" She comes arms streatched open. She looks like Bella, only she has chocolate brown eyes instead of blue. Bella comes by my side and joins me. "Dinner's almost ready, we'll eat it outside tonight!" "No!" Bella and I say at the exact same time. "Why, what's wrong?" Bella and I look at eachother studdering. "Uh.... It's windy..." Her mom looks out the window behind us, "No it's not. Come on! It'll be fun." We refuse to eat outside, but she refuses to let us eat inside, and as an adult, she wins. Bella and I keep our eyes firmly on our food, shrimp. We only look up enough to catch eachothers gaze. I feel so restricted! Her parents have absolutely no idea what's wrong with us. "Cleo! You're usually so talkative!" I shrug, "Long day, I guess..."


Bella's POV


I eat all my shrimp as fast as possible and Cleo does the same. My parents try to make small talk, but it doesn't exactly work out for them... We finish up the last of what's on our plates and head inside, but my mom and dad stay outside. We walk down the pathway, heads down, but Cleo looks up. Her expression goes blank and my heart stops. I don't look up... I know what she's staring at. Her plate falls out of her hand and shatters on the ground. "Oops! Sorry mom!" I say, pretending I did it. "Ugh, just leave it there Bella! Please be more careful!" I quickly push Cleo inside and up to my room, where she thrusts herself on the be.


"Hi Bella!" She says all giggley. "Ugh! Cleo!" She begins to laugh uncontrollably. I throw a pillow at her, "That's not very nice!" She tries to calm down, but the moon overpowers her and she rolls off the bed, laughing even harder. Her face turns beet red. Suddonly she stops and sits up. "Bella!!" She's super excited about something. "Umm... What?" I ask, not sure I want to know the answer. "Let's go see Liam!!!!" I roll my eyes. Lately, she's been obsessed with One Direction, they're amazing, I've gotta admit, but still.... "He's not here Cleo!" She giggles. "Of course he is, silly! I kissed him," And there she goes laughing again. "No you didn't!" This isn't the worst moonstruck Cleo's gotton, but it is the most annoying.  "No, stay here." She sits on the bed and crosses her arms. "Fine!" She pouts like a little kid. She looks around the room and suddonly shoots up. She darts to the other side, grabs a glass of water, and before I know it, I'm soaking wet. I loose my balance and I fall on the ground, my blue tail replacing my legs. "Guess you can't stop me now!" She prances out of the room and I'm alone.


Liam's POV


I keep thinking about Cleo. All the lads know that I like her, I'm sure of it, but that doesn't change the fact that I'll probably not see her again. Then the doorbell rings. I open the door, hoping that it's not some fan that found out where we're staying, and I see Cleo staring back at me. "Hello, beautiful." I say because she really does look beautiful in the moonlight. "Hi! Can I come in?" She asks in  a sing-song voice. "Uh, sure." I turn around to see all the lads, smiling. "So, why'd you come here?" I ask, eager to know. "Oh, I don't know..." She's clearly out of it. She makes her way up the stairs and looks around. What is she doing? And what's wrong with her? I stumble after her as she gracefully glides in and out of each room. She quickly turns on her heel, and begins to walk back, but isntead rins right into me. That silly grin wipes right off her face, and a sparkle sets in her eyes. I smile and wrap my arms around her waist. She brings her hands up to my neck, her touch is like magic. We don't say a word, and slowly let our lips meet, she stands on her toes, and her soft fragile lips make me shudder. She's the most amazing girl in the world.

I sit with the rest of the boys in the lounge as Cleo spins around in circles, occasionally yelling "WEEEE!!" "What's wrong with 'er?" Niall asks. I just shrug and keep watching her. When she's finally done spinning, she plops down on the couch next to me and begins to sing one of our songs. "Shot me out of the sky. You're my kryptonite. You keep makin' me weak, yeah frozen and can't speak..." But she trails off and starts laughing. I smile as she lays down, her head on my lap. "You tired?" I ask. "Yeah... I guess I should go home now..." She gets up and starts walking towards the door. I can't let her go out like this! She's like... drunk or something. I stop her, "Wait Cleo, stay here tonight!" She smiles. "Okay!" I bring her to my room and she jumps on my bed. Finally she stops and lays down and so do I. It's like she doesn't even notice me and she drifts off to sleep, I get situated on the couch-bed in the room. I wish I could go over there and hold her in my arms... but she'd probably push me away.

"Liam... can you come over here?" I get up. "I'm scared." I realise she's sleep talking, so I do what I was wanting to, I slip my arms around her. "Shh, it's okay, I'm here." I say, she smiles and I close my eyes and fall asleep.


Cleo's POV


I don't know where I am... the water is chacing me!!! And I can't out run it. I call out Liam's name. "I'm scared!" I say. Suddonly, it's like it all dissappeared and a calming feeling comes over me. I'm swimming in the coral with Bella, then it all turns black and I see nothing...
