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...


3. Day One

I yawned and stretched to be met by something solid. Looking down I saw Liam laying in bed next to me. Everything came back in one massive wave. I slipped out of bed, being careful not to wake Liam, and put his orange Jack Will's hoodie on before making my way down the stairs. Checking the clock I saw it was 2pm. We slept late! Although techinally we didn't actually fall asleep until like 2:30 am anyway.

"Hello Love!" Louis said as I walked in the kitchen, and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I was still really shy so I blushed and did a slight wave before he went who knows where. I sat at one of the stools on the breakfast island and laid my head in my hands. It was my method of thinking.

"Here ya go." Niall placed a bowl of cereal in front of me and I gave him a sideways hug before digging in. Still thinking. What was I going to tell my mother? What about Anthony? All my stuff was at my old home so I currently actually had no clothes what so ever as they were caked in mud from yesterday night. I should buy some new clothes and stuff today, but I didn't have any money. What was I going to do about College? I was in my Christmas holidays of my upper sixth so I still had all my exams to take next summer to get my A-levels. Then I had a plan to go to University and become a paediatric Nurse. But that all went out the window when I tried to take my own life last night. I really didn't want to go back to college after Christmas, I mean, I didn't have to. Plus if I was going to stay with the boys then they would be so bust touring worldwide and stuff so I wouldn't really have time to go to college anyway...

"You okay there?" Niall asked as he sat across from me. It turned out he had been talking to me and I had just been day dreaming. I blushed a deep red and nodded before starting to eat my cornflakes. "You sure? You look... upset? Down?" Niall continued to question me but I just said I was fine. Then he tried to make me laugh whilst I was eating by pulling funny faces at me and I ended up spraying Liam with milk when he came down the stairs. His shirt was soaked...

"I am SO sorry..." Liam just raised his eye brows and rolled his eyes before casually taking his shirt off and going to get a bowl from the cupboard. I stared and when I finally wrenched my eyes away from his toned chest Niall was laughing his head off. I pointed at him and said, "I am going to get you back for that." He raised his eyes brows and shook his head before we both laughed. Liam sat down next to me after Niall had gone for a shower, and started eating his weetabix.

"Eurgh..." He pulled a funny face and switched our bowels, then started to eat my cornflakes. I lowered my jaw in mock shock and he swallowed and started laughing. I couldn't keep it up and laughed too. I stuck my tongue out at him and lightly hit his arm. He just wrapped his arms around me so we both stood up and pulled me in to a hug. I winced and he loosened his grip slightly and kissed my head. I pulled back a little and looked into his light brown eyes. They were so beautiful. I could look into them all day. I started to lean in and so did he,our lips were just milimetres apart...

"Hi guys, shopping for Ruby today right?" Niall walked in and we both jumped back. I wacked my back on the counter and groaned in pain. Niall was smirking and Liam was looking at me as if he was debating whether he should help or not. He decided to and walked over, scooping me in his arms bridal style. I rested my head on his shoulder looking forward so I could see Niall.

"Yeah, I'll see if Lou has any of El's stuff and she can wear that today." Liam explained. Niall nodded and left the room. Liam then carried me up the stairs as if I weighed a feather and sat me on the bed. He tucked a piece of hair behind my ear before Louis came in with some clothes in his arms.

"I don't know if they'll fit but I think they should as they are both like super skinny. But here ya go I got the longer things to cover you up." Louis gave a sympathetic smile towards me before laying some clothes down on the computer chair. Liam thanked him and he left. Liam then walked over to the pile and help up the clothes so I could see them. There were a pair of dark blue super skinny jeans with a baby pink strap top. Then Liam read a note.


You can wear Liam's hoodie and your converse from last night as they will go. Liam won't mind. 'Cause he Luuuuuuuuuurves you. Seriously I think I know almost everything about you. You are all he has talked about since we got together. He has really missed you and I think he deserves a chance. Take a shot with him. You won't regret it.

From your bestest friend in the whole entire world who is just so totally awesome!



I giggled at how he signed his name and Liam blushed as he read the bit about him. I was confused as to what he meant by 'take a shot with him'. Liam was my best friend. He would never like me in that way... would he? Liam went to the bathroom to get changed and left me in the bedroom. I got my bra and knickers from yesterday... ew.... and got changed into the clothes Lou had left for me who were 'El's' who I presumed was his girlfriend or something. They actually fit really well and I slipped on my converse from yesterday as ordered to. Looking in the mirror the outfit looked great but my hair was a mess...

I groaned at my appearence and Liam chuckled as he walked in from the bathroom. I attempted to run my fingers through my hair but it didn't work very well. Liam chuckled again and walked over to me, wrapping his arms around my waist. Tingles ran through me from his touch and I looked in his eyes through the full length mirror.

"You look beautiful." He said and kissed my cheek. He then grabbed a hair brush from a draw and handed it to me. I was confused as to why he had a hairbrush with barely any hair but just brushed mine anyway. When I was done, my dark brown hair fell in loose ringlets until just below my shoulders, and I put my beanie on. Liam gave me his light blue zip up hoodie and with that I was done. Liam was in a fitted grey T-shirt with dark jeans on and white trainers. His short hair was styled so the middle bit was spiking up a bit. He looked quite hot actually... "You ready?" I nodded and he took my hand in his and we met up with Louis and Niall at the front door.

"Come on!!" Louis shouted and Harry and Zayn ran down the stairs. I hid a little bit behind Liam and he squeezed my hand a little in his, conforting me. I was still a little scared and shy. We all walked out and got into a black van. The boys talked the whole way to the shopping centre and we all climbed out. They all put sunglasses and their hoods up except for Liam. He said he didn't care if he was photographed with me which I though was cute. Harry and Louis went off looking for something, Niall went towards the foor area compaining he didn't have enough for breakfast and Zayn was looking in some jewellery shop at the rolex watches. Leaving me and Liam standing outside the centre.

"Where to first Miss Jones?" Liam asked me in a really posh accent. I laughed like an idiot and he joined as people passed by looking at us like we belonged in a mental hospital, which we probably did...

"Hollister?" I suggested once we had calmed down and and Liam looked at me with an evil expression written all over his face and grabbed my hand. He half dragged me as he ran, into Hollister and straight to the back of the shop. We stopped  and he let go of my hand, both of us gasping for air.

"What about this?" He pulled a random dress from a random rack behind him and held it up in front of me.

"Oooh that's nice!" I exclaimed. It was a navy blue colour with straps to hold it up, and with little pink flowers all over it. Liam rasied his eyebrows at shock that he had picked something so nice so quickly and shoved it in the bag he had picked up on the way in. I gave him a questioning look as he dropped the back and pushed me so my back was against the wall and he stood in front of me. My heart began to race and I was glad that I was concealed by the clothes. He put one hand by me head on the wall and the other on my waist. We were both breathing heavily and he moved his face so his lips were just milimetres away from mine. "What are you doing?" I breather barely above a whisper.

"What I have wanted to do since before I first left." He replied and came even closer. His lips touched mine ever so gently that I could barely feel it, but I melted under it though. As soon as he realised that I was kissing him back he pressed harder and it became more heated and passionate. My hands trailed up his toned chest and he shivered a little until they tangled in his growing back hair. The hand by the wall moved so it was in my own dark brown ringlets and his arm snaked around my waist, pulling me against his body so there was no air between us at all. Our lips moved in sync as his soft ones moulded in mine and he slipped his tongue along my bottom lip. I denyed him entrance and groaned and we both grinned. As he continued my guard came crashing down and his tongue slipped in, roaming around my mouth. Both of out tongues danced together and I groaned. His grip tightened and mine mirrored, as I felt like we were the only two people in the world. We eventually pulled apart, panting for any oxygen. A grin appeared on both our faces and he held me close against his body.

"I'll stay with you. I'll come on tour with you." I mumbled against his chest. He pulled back and looked me in the eye excited.

"Really?!" He asked, all excited. I nodded and he squealed like what I imagine one of his little fangirls would, and spun me around in a circle. I winced at his tight grip and put me down. "Sorry..." He mumbled and I pecked his cheek, making his smile once more.

"Come on, we have to finish shopping." He nodded and interwined our hands with one of his and had the bag in his other. When we finally came out of hollister I had got, four pairs of jeans, two pairs of shoes, six tops, one skirt, three dresses, three pairs of shorts and more than the odd peck on the cheek and lips. Liam insisted on carrying all the bags even though he himself had only gotten two hoodies. We met up with the rest of the boys and went to VANS shop next.

"You will absolutely LOVE this shop!" Louis said as he took my arm and looped it with his, steering me towards the shop. I looked over my shoulder to see Liam with a slightly worried look on his face as he watched me and Louis but also with a slight smirk. I stuck my tongue out at him and he acted hurt before doing the same. I giggled and Louis frowned at me, obviously not liking being left out in the dark of the joke. He smiled back at me though as I did to him and he went straight up to the lady in the store asking for three pairs of shoes in size 9-10 and, SEVEN, in my size - 4to5. Liam laughed at my expression and placed all the bags down on the floor by a long stool where you sat to try on shoes. I sat next to him and he placed an arm around my waist, kissing my forhead lightly. All the other boys spread out, looking around and Liam went to look as well.

"This seat taken?" A voice asked behind me. I turned to see a mop of dark brown curls and shook my head shyly at Harry. "Want to get to know each other? I want you to trust me. I mean, you ARE going to be living with me and you're pretty and seem really nice..." He trailed off and blushed at his rambling. A slight smile formed on my lips and he smiled back.

"What do you want to know?" I asked him, surprisingly more confident than even I thought. He was silent a minute as he thought about it, debating with himself by the looks of it.

"Errr... I hope you don't mind me asking but how did you get hurt and how did Liam know you?" He looked so nervous about it that I chuckled a little. In a way I was kind of expecting those questions to be the first. I thought about it for a while and eventually decided to tell him. Sighing and taking a deep breath I started to tell him my story.

"Well, I have know Liam since I started secondary shool. I got bullied and he was the one to stick up for me. After that we became like really really close friends. I always had a little bit of a crush on him but I never told him. I was the one that atucally ecnouraged him to go for his singing on the X-Factor and he got through. I wasn't surprised as he's an amazing singer. We used to spend every monent together. We practically lived at each other's houses." Harry was listening intently as my thoughts drifted to how it used to be. "I watched him every week on the X-Factor as he was with you guys. He contacted for about two months after the show but after that he kind of broke contact. When he eventually did text or call me back I ignored him. He had done the same when I most needed him. You see soon after he left my dad dies of cancer and my mum married this guy called Anthony. I never told Liam any of this." Harry wrapped an arm around my shoulder and I scooted closer to him. "He abused me and gave me all the brusies and cuts. He used to come into my room and rape me at night when he came back drunk. My mum didn't believe anything I told her and was blinded by his 'love'" I made hand quotation marks around the word. "I tried to commit suicide last night by jumping off the bridge. Liam caught me and pulled me back again. I was so angry and thought he had no right as he didn't understand but in the end we started to return to old times. He was my best friend. He's back again. I couldn't lie about the fact that I am so happy about that. I find it hard to trust people anymore, as you can probably understand, and I get really nervous around people. As you could probably tell." Harry's grip tightened on my arm. "And I think, just maybe, that I actually... l...lo...love Liam..." I trailed and looked at Harry who was grinning like an idiot at my last comment. "What?"

"You are all Liam has talked about since I have known him." Harry started. "When we were first put together as a band we stayed together for a couple of weeks before live shows at my place. Liam would talk about this beautiful Ruby girl back home who encouraged him to do this. About how he was missing prom to be here and how he was planning on asking her there and then asking her out. He tells us all the time about how much he regrets losing contact and he blames himself for it because he never texted. He goes on and on about how much he misses you and he told us that when we got back here he was going to find you and do what he was going to do before, ask you out. He went out for a walk last night to do that. I can't imagine what that must be like. To find the very girl you were going to ask out, trying to kill herself. He loves you Ruby. He loves you so much, he is just scared to admit it. Give him a chance. He deserves it." Harry explained. I was grinning like an idiot at the end and he kissed my cheek as the very man himself came over with the rest of the boys and two ladies carrying five boxes each. They passed three to Louis who sat on the end and seven to Liam sitting next to me.

We left VANS with the three boxes Louis had picked and five of the ones he had got for me.We visited a further at least 5 shops before making our way back to the van where Liam was about to kiss my cheek when I turned my head to meet his lips with mine. He wa surprised at first but soon kissed back and we both smiled into the kiss. When we both pulled back we put the bags in the boot with the rest of the boys staring at us apart from Harry who was grinning. He winked at me and I smiled back. In the car I entwined my fingers with Liam's and rested my head on his shoudler. He ran his free hand through my hair and I talked to him and Niall the whole way back.

That night I unpacked all my new belongings into Liam's room where I would be staying and got into a new pair of pajamas. which consisted of a brown tight tank top with brown and white checked shorts. I found it was easy to dress so that you could see my bruises with Liam. I just felt comfortable. Climbing into bed I crawled close to Liam and he pecked my lips  before I rested my head on his chest with his arms around my waist. This was how it was meant to be. My best friend was back and he was finally mine. At least I think he is. I drifted off to sleep with a smile plastered on my face. Perfect.



Sorry it took so long to update, I had written LOADS but my laptop decided to run out of power so I lost it all and had to re-write it all! I didn't want to be one of those writers that does it all quickly but rubbish so I took longer and did almost as good. Hope you like it! Please Like and Favourite and some feedback comments would be great and helpful! Thanks :)
