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.


2. Magic

Liam's POV

I keep thinking about that girl. The one who stood out from the rest. The one who walked right past me like I wasn't there... Like I was a normal teenage boy trying to get the attention of an amazing girl who doesn't even know I exist... Her hair- a tangled mess- flowed in the wind like the waves. Though... She's just another girl. I try to tell myself this.... But it's not true. There's something about her.... It's like magic. I'll never see her again... And I know that, so why can't I get her out of my head? I have every other girl in the world drooling over me... But her... She's different. I can't shake the weird feeling I have about her. Even if I could go back out and search gor her... I'd be noticed because well... Between teenage girls... News travels fast. So now everyone here knows that... LIAM PAYNE IS HERE!!!!!!! And if they know I'm here... They know "the guys" are too. Her face flashes in my mind again and I start thinking all over again. "Liam! What's the matter with you?" I snap back to reality when Niall punches my arm. I can't tell them that I'm sitting here thinking about some random girl... "N-nothing...." I answer, "just need some fresh air." I step out of the beach house we bought a few days ago and let the waves outside calm me. I close my eyes and let the ocean breeze carry me... Drifting farther and farther away from this place... From the guys.... From fame... And from her. At the thought of her makes my eyes snap open and I'm brought back to the world. I slowly turn to the window and see the four of them inside, laughing and acting... Normal. But we're not normal. Everyone is in love with us... But not us.... It's the us they think we are, but we're totally different and it's kinda sad that no one will ever know the real us.... Like I'll never know the real her. I need to get away from here, so I brave the people and slip away to an old rotted dock. I let my legs dangle over the edge, no one would even think that a celebrity would be here... or any person at all for that matter. I sit there for what seems like forever.

Cleo's POV

I blow bubbles out of my mouth and watch them float up to the surface like jellyfish, only completely harmless. You see, when I first became a mermaid, I knew exactly nothing about the ocean, so I swam right into hundreds of jellyfish, my body stung for a month. In my defence, they looked soft and fluffy, like the cutest little creatures in the world. Now, I try to stay away from the open part of the ocean and hang out in the coral reef, like I am now. It's like a beautiful underwater garden, but you don't need to constantly break your back weeding and watering it, self sustainable, like every other thing down here under the surface. Like me. I've kept the secret this long, haven't I? I think about searching for some more shells, but decide I've had enough. It's not like I want to stop swimming, but a deep ache begins to set in my stomach, saying that I've been flapping the tail a little too long. Besides, it's not like I can hold my breath forever. I blindly navigate my way back to the rotting dock, tiring myself out with every move I make. Finally, I see the poles sticking into the sand at the bottom, and glide up to the surface.

Liam's POV

I try as hard as possible to clear my head, but it's so clouded over, I don't even know where to begin. my stomach growls, but I ignore it for the time being. My eyes skip over the waters surface, but shift back to near where I'm sitting. did I just see bubbles? I shake my head, it's probably just coming from the sand at the bottom. More bubbles and I see something moving through the sand colored water. I lift my feet up incase it's like a shark or something, but other than that, I stahy there, curious to see what it is. Another ripple of movement, did I just see a huge fin? Something begins to rise up to the surface, and it submerges so gracefully. I'm staring into a pair of perfect blue eyes, shock overcomes me and I can't move... it's her.
