This Love is Real

Lauren is dragged to a party at Liam Payne's house (Thanks to Louis) and expected to hate it. Instead, she is thrown into a strange situation, and meets Liam Payne, who might be the man of her dreams.


34. Shadows in the Night




I'm standing about a meter away from Liam. He's behind me.

Which means, I'm the one who sees the shadow first.

No. This can't be happening.

“LIAM GET BACK!!!!!!” I yell at the top of my lungs.

He tries to come closer, but I push him with all of my force and he gets further away then I expected.


We learned this in lifeguard training. You're not supposed to be swimming at night time.


Because that' when the sharks are out.

“Lauren what's wrong??!?!?!?!” Liam is practically screaming himself, but he's droned out. I'm concentrated on getting him away from that shark.

Its huge. Its the size of my father.

I can't breathe, and tears are streaming down my face.

“GET AWAY!!!!!”

This is my time to act.

I have no choice.

I don't have to go towards it.

No. It comes to me. Quickly.

I can see it coming closer, and closer.

Its ready to attack.

At this point my lifeguard leader's instructions are running through my head.

The gills.

I'm absolutely terrified. But I do it anyway.

I take my foot, and kick as hard as I have ever kicked anything in my life, at what I hope with all my heart, is the shark's gills.

It immediately stops.

Its not moving.

I take the opportunity, Liam has already started running towards me, but I push him away more.

“RUN!!!! GO!!!!!”

We both run as fast as we possibly can, and we finally make it to the shore.

Once were there, I collapse.

Tears are streaming down my face, I'm breathing heavily. I cant even lift my head. It's pounding.

Liam's collapsed beside, stroking my hair.

“Lauren???!!? what happened?!!?! babe please respond!!! LAUREN!!!!!” he yells.

He could've died. I could've died.

But I have to. For Liam.

I take all of my strength, turn myself around, onto my back and put my arms, around his neck, and continued sobbing.

He breathes, a sigh of relief. It's shaky though. I know he's crying.

“Squeeze my hand if you're okay. Please Lauren. Do you need help?”

I, with all that's left in me, squeeze his hand.

I don't need to be spending more time in hospitals. I don't even know if i'm hurt. My body's pounding so hard, I cant feel anything.

I feel Liam pick my up in his arms, and start walking, hopefully towards the hotel, when I black out.
