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.


13. They Don't know about Us

Cleo's POV


"When I was a little girl, I was wandering around the beach with Bella. We found this lonely tide pool. The water was so blue and the moon was full. It's like we were drawn there, we decided to get in and you know... splash around and pretend we were mermaids." I pause for a moment. Telling someone this is the hardest thing in the world. I continue, "When it was time to go, we said our goodbyes and began to leave, but we turned back to see the pool for the last time and it was gone. Like it vanished. The next day I went over to Bellas for a swim, as soon as we hit the water, bubbles covered our bodies. Next thing we knew, we had tails. At first we were scared... but after a few months, we got used to it. It was between me and Bella, our little secret." He sits on the sand next to me and says nothing. "Liam?" His eyes meet mine. He opens his mouth to say something, but nothing comes out. "Are you okay?" "I-I don't know what to say.... I-" "I don't really expect you to say anything... But please don't tell anyone. Promise me that." He shakes his head. "l don't think I can." Fear washes over me. What does he mean? Who's he gonna tell? I can't believe it. " can't believe I trusted you." I push him aside and bgin to walk towards the water. "No Cleo, I didn't mean-" That's all I hear before I dive in, the sound of bubbles drowning out his voice. Who's he gonna tell? That's all I ask myself.


Liam's POV


I didn't mean what I said, and now I've lost her trust... My lips form the word "Cleo," But I get all choaked up and I want to cry. Then I realise where she's gone. The dock. I rush over the rocks and walk on the beach. I would take the same way as Cleo... but l don't exactly have a tail...

I make my way to the abandoned part of the beach, and slip into the dock. I see her there, crying. I walk up and sit beside her. She doesn't even look at me, just wipes her tears away and says, "What do you want?", "Your trust." I respond. She stops and looks up at me. "What does that mean? You're the one that won't keep my secret." I sigh because I know it's true. "Give me another chance, I didn't mean it, who would I even tell, anyways? It was an in-the-moment thing to say." She sniffs and wipes away another tear. "They don't know about us, you know." I'm confused. "Who?" "Everyone, I haven't told anyone at all except you." I honestly am honored, then I realised I pushed it upon her when I got her wet. A wave of guilt overcomes me, but it gets washed away as Cleo goes to tell me about the three full moons and that's why she went all crazy. I laugh. Tonight's the third and worst one. And I won't be here to keep her safe. I still haven't told her that I'm leaving.


Cleo's POV


After I tell him all he needs to know, I jump right in the water and he follows. I swim down to the bottom and he already has to come up for air, but me being part fish, I hold my breath for so long. We splash around and have fun. I sometimes catch him staring at my tail and that makes me laugh.

I made the right decision to tell him.
