Old Friends New Life (Completed)

Hello, my name is Ruby. I was best friends with Liam all throughout secondary school. Yes, THE Liam Payne. When he left at the end of year 11 to audition for X-Factor again I supported him fully. We stayed in contact for a while but in the end just kind of drifted. We haven't contacted in a year and let alone seen each other in nearly 2. Fancy running into him on the night I ran away of all nights. You see my dad died of cancer but I never told Liam. My mum was depressed and when Anthony came along he was really nice. Mum was so masked by their 'love' that she didn't listen when I told her of all the abuse he gave me. Things didn't help when he got her pregnant. I decided to run away in the end. That was enough, I couldn't cope with anything anymore. I went to the river and was standing on the bridge, about to jump...


30. A Year On

Liam's P.O.V.

I awoke to the cries of a baby and rolled over to look at the clock. 3am. I'd forgotten all about having to get up in the middle of the night since Daniel was nearly three years old now and slept all the way through the night. Ruby groaned and went to get out the bed but I just pulled her back in, kissed her neck and got out myself.

The cries got louder as I made my way to the other side of the room and picked our three week old daughter out from the cot she was in. Her tufty brown hair was so adorable and her blue eyes shone in the darkness of the room. I made my way down the stairs carefully to the kitchen whilst continuing to cradle my little girl, so that I could get her some milk. Once it had heated up and I checked the temperature I sat down on one of the sofas in the living room and fed her from the bottle as I laid my head back and let my thoughts drift. I thought of the day of the wedding.


I was stood at the end of the aisle next to the alter and tapped my foot nervously whilst humming a tune to myself in anticipation of what was going to happen.

"Calm down mate," Zayn whispered in my ear "It's going to be fine." I relaxed a little and just tapped my foot without the humming. I could see Zayn rolling his eyes from the corner of my own but I didn't care. Just then the music started and everyone fell silent and stood up to watch my beautiful Ruby walk down the aisle accompanied by Louis. She looked absolutely stunning. A long white strapless dress that trailed behind her slightly, her bouquet of flowers with light pink flowers in with little purple ones. Her hair was all up in a plait-bun on the top of her head with little sparkly jewels dotted in it. Stunning.

I was just staring at her and was numb with joy as she took her place beside me in front of the minister. Before I knew it we had said our vows and written in the book and were pronounced husband and wife. The moment her lips touched mine it was prefect. Everything in the world was right and I knew I was exactly where I was supposed to be.

That night we danced and ate and danced and laughed the night away. Zayn was looking after Daniel for the night with a little help from Beth. They had gone on a couple of dates and everyone was just waiting for Zayn to ask her out now. Including her! That night was amazing and I was able to make love to my wife and not have to worry about anything else. It was just me and Ruby. Just how I want it to be forever.

*End Of Flashback*

Once my little girl had finished her milk I burped her and went back into the kitchen to rinse the bottle out. She was now fast asleep once again in my arms as I made my way back up the stairs. Just as I was about to turn into mine and Ruby's room I felt an arm wrap around my leg. Looking down it was a very sleepy two year old carrying a teddy and gazing up at me with tears in his eyes. At a dilemma I quickly laid my daughter down on her bed before going out to see my son.

"What's wrong little man?" I asked quietly as I scooped him up in my arms. He snuggled his head in the crook of my neck and wrapped his arms around me so I could feel teddy hitting my back every step I took towards his room.

"I had a bad dream daddy." A tear slipped down his cheek and I wiped it away as I laid him carefully on the bed and got in next to him as he cuddled my side. He told me all about it and I sung 'Half A Heart' to him until he fell asleep. Just like after my daughter was born. I remember that clearly.


"LIAM!" I heard a yell from the bedroom as I was making a cup of tea at around one in the morning. She was craving it apparently and I have to comply. I ignored her and finished the tea before carrying it up the stairs to her as she lay in bed. "Liam!" She whimpered as I walked in. I quickly rushed to her side and saw the puddle of water on the bed. Her waters. Ruby wasn't due for another couple weeks but I guess the baby had decided now. I hurriedly got her to put her shoes on as I grabbed a sleeping Daniel from his bed with his blanket and teddy. We were dropping him off at my parents' house.I pulled up outside and picked Daniel from the car with his overnight bag I had had packed for a while just in case. I rang the doorbell repeatedly until my dad finally came to the door.

"For Goodness sake Liam, what do you want at this time?" I had clearly woken him up but I didn't have enough time to feel bad. I gave my two year old son to him and placed the bag on the floor as I explained what was going on as I was running back to the car. Ruby's labour was no where near as long this time as it had been for Daniel, and my new baby was born within five hours of getting to the hospital. A little girl as well. She was an angel and cried gently in my arms as I cradled her whilst Ruby slept and got some rest as she was exhausted. I sung quietly and she soon fell asleep in my arms. It was like a gift from heaven.


*End Of Flashback*

I left Daniel and made my way back to my own bed with Ruby in. As soon as I slipped under the covers she shuffled closer and I wrapped my arms around her with a content sigh escaping my lips. Life was perfect. We had moved out of the big house with the boys just after we had got married and lived just a couple of roads over. Separate enough to have some privacy but close enough to still be with the boys whenever we wanted or needed. Shelby and Louis had a little girl as well whom they had named Amelia.

Everything was shaping out great. Bella and Niall are engaged, Zayn and Beth are finally together - a few weeks after the wedding - and Zayn is considering whether or not to propose. Harry had taken JJ on a couple dates since the wedding and is planning to ask her out soon.

All is good.
