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.


12. She's not Afraid

Cleo's POV


I wake up in a daze. I have a huge headache. I don't recagnise the room I'm in, so I roll over and almost scream. I jump, but don't fall out of bed. Liam is laying next to me, one hand on my waist. My eyes are wide and my heart is racing so fast. His eyes flitter open to see me. He smiles and I can't do the same back. "Morning!" He says, sleepily. "Uh.... Hi... Wh- where am I? Why am I here...?" He looks confused. "Umm... You're in my room, remember?" I try so hard to think, but last I remember, I was with Bella. I let out a shakey breath. "Why am I in YOUR bed?" He laughs. "You were scared, so I came to comfort you, that's all..." He pulls his hand away and blushes. I get up and stand. He does the same. My phone has been going off all night apparently, "CLEO! WHERE ARE YOU?", "CLEO!!! SNAP OUT OF IT!", "PLEASE COME BACK, my parents are suspicious!!" "HELLO? MOONSTRUCK MERMAID?????" I roll my eyes and begin to blush. I looked at the moon. I want to cry.


Bella's POV


I pace back and fourth, it's morning, and still no sign of Cleo. What if she swam away or something? I close my eyes and breathe out. Calm down, Bella! She's probably fine! I grab my phone and text her one last time, "Cleo, I'm worried Where are you??" I put the phone in my pocket and set out to the beach. Maybe she's there.


Liam's POV


How could she not remember last night?? That was so weird. It's like she had no idea what she was doing... and no control over her actions. I lead her downstairs, and surprisingly all the lads are awake, except for Zayn. She smiles a shy smile at everyone, and they wave back... probably wondering what was up with her last night... I think all of us would like to know that. She sits down and I ask her if she wants breakfast, she shakes her head no, but I get her a plate anyways. We're having eggs and bacon. She stares at it. "Everything okay, love?" Harry asks, "Yeah..." She says, "But I uh.... What is that?" She asks, pointing at the bacon. Niall bursts out laughing and I hide a smirk. "Bacon." "Oh.." She says, blushing. I kick Niall under the table and he tries to stop, but it makes him laugh harder. "You've never had bacon?" "Umm... I stick to sea food." This time it's Louis's turn to laugh. "Come on guys! Give her a break." Harry says. She looks up at Harry and smiles. He smiles back. At that moment, Zayn steps into the room, his hair sticking up in all directions. He's not exactly a morning persom. He walks over to the fridge, stretching and yawning and grabs the milk. He screws off the lid and drinks from the carton. Out of the corner of my eye, I see Cleo push her glass of milk away and I laugh. "Morning Zayn." Niall says. He nods at him and grabs some still steaming bacon off the grittle and takes a bite, leaning back on the counter. Then he sees Cleo and stops chewing. "You stayed here al night?" She nods. "Where did you sleep?" She looks at me and begins to blush. "In my room." I say.

His eyebrows arch up, but he changes the subject. "What was wrong with you last night?" She sits back in her chair.


Cleo's POV


I feel small. Defeated. I want to dissapear and never come back. What did I do? I probably embarrassed myself so badly. I want to cry. "N-nothing." I respond. Louis lets out a little laugh. "Whatever Cleo! You were drunk!" My eyes widen. They think I was drunk!!! "NO! I wasn't! I promise!" "Then what?" They all stare at me. My mouth goes dry. "I gotta go." I quickly get up and head to the front door. Liam quickly catches up with me. "Cleo, wait!" He turns to face me, blocking my exit. "Let's go for a walk." I look into his eyes, and without thinking, nod my head. We walk outside and head towards the part of the beach where no one wants to go. It's surrounded by rocks, but Liam seems to know where he's going. Then I recagnise it. When Liam got me wet, I swam here, completely concealed from the rest of the world, everyone but Liam.

We sit on the rocks and begin to talk. We talk about a lot of normal stuff. He inches closer to me, like an elementry kid who inches closer and closer to another elementry girl and touches her. Then she runs away screaming "Coodies!" But this is different, I'm not gonna run away screaming, first of all, and second of all, when he touches me, he doesn't poke my shoulder. His lips touch me. And tenderly set there. I smile and have to pull away. "Come here...." I crawl into his arms and he kisses my cheek, his warm breath dances on my skin, making me feel so alive. Before I know it, he picks me up and is heading towards the water. Now the little elementry girl inside me comes out, screaming. "NO Liam! Put me down NOW!! Stop!" He keeps walking, the water up to his ankles. "Put me back on shore! NOW!" He laughs and keeps walking. "I'm not kidding Liam!" He is up to his knees in sea water, and I know he's not turning back. My heart starts racing, I feel like I'm going to throw up, and I'm shaking like a little chuahuah. It's the moment of truth. He's up to his thighs. My legs inches from the water. If a wave comes, I'm dead.

I see it forming in the distance. I gulp. Do I tell him, or run away again?


Liam's POV


She tries to get out of my arms, but I don't let go. I don't know why she's freaking out, but it's cute when she freaks. It makes me laugh. "Liam!" I pull her in closer, reassuring her that I won't let her go. She's not afraid of amything, just water. But that makes no sense... I saw her swimming, but she can't touch it when I'm around. I can see a wave forming in the distance. It's gonna be a big one. The undertoe is already starting to pull me out further. The wave finally comes and it soaks her whole body. She breaks away and dives in. Is she gone? I see her swim over behind some rocks. "Cleo?" "D- don't come over here!" She exclaims. "You okay?" She doesn't answer. I see some coral color shimmer in the water.


Cleo's POV


I stare at my tail... there's no getting out of this one. I guess that's that. It's time for him to know... "Cleo?" He calls out again. I let out a deep breath, and he rounds the corner.

He freezes and doesn't know what to say. "That's not a costume, is it?" The words slur together like he's about to faint. "Liam... Please..." He stands there, it's like he's frozen. "Cleo... How?" That's all he can manage to get out. This was a bad idea. I bite my lip... I guess I need to just forget about him. I make my way around the rocks and over to the beach I pull my heavy tail up on shore and use my heat to evaporate the water, steam rising up all around me. "I guess I should tell him the story. I take a deep breath in to begin...
