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...


28. Josh, JJ and Bella x2...

Liam's P.O.V.

I woke up to an empty bed the next morning. Glancing over at the clock I saw it was 11am. Woah, I never sleep that late... I was glad Ruby had let me sleep in though as last night was pretty exhausting. I laid in bed for another 10 minutes or so before climbing out and slipping on an old shirt to cover my bare chest as I made my way downstairs.

"Daddy's here look! You can go to him now you annoying little boy." I had Danny thrust into my arms as Ruby stood up grumpily and made her way upstairs, still in her pajamas. A couple of minutes later the water for the shower was running so I presume that was where she went. I gave a questioning look towards Zayn and he just shrugged and continued to drink his tea. It seemed everyone was having a lazy day either still in their night clothes or sweats. Louis and Shelby were cuddled up on the sofa looking at some pregnancy site that I recognised from when Ruby was pregnant, Harry was sat opposite them snuggled up with a blanket and looking better but still rather pale and tired with bags under his eyes the poor boy, Niall was making some bacon for breakfast with scrambled eggs and decided to make extra for me as I had just woken up.

"Why are you an annoying little boy, huh?" I asked Daniel as I stood aganist the worktop. He just stared at me blankly and I sighed before kissing his forehead. He looked much better today but still had a little bit of a temperature. I set him in his high chair at the table as Niall came over and joined us, handing me a plate and a knife and fork along with a glass of orange juice. I thanked him and got up to grab Daniel's sippy-cup from the fridge which had apple juice in it. Danny seemed quite content with his cup, lifting over his head and throwing it on the floor. After the third time I just left it there and ate my breakfast. No wonder Ruby said he was annoying today...

"Aren't you going to pick it up?" Zayn asked once Danny began to cry and thump his fists on the tray of his high chair. I shook my head and continued to ignore him, holding my hand out to stop Zayn when he started to lean over and pick it up off the floor. The little boy needed to learn that he wasn't going to get his way all the time. Being nearly one, it was apparently time to start doing discipline, and lets just say that it was easier said than done. "Hellooooo?" Zayn pulled me out of my thoughts and I returned to see the scene before me, Daniel crying hysterically and Niall trying to distract him but failing miserably. Shelby and Louis had turned to look and seemed kind of scared as this was what they got to look forward to in just under two years. Harry was looking especially pale and about to throw up so he ran off to the downstairs bathroom, and Ruby still wasn't down even though the shower had stopped running.

"Just give him the bloody cup then." I snapped and picked the cup off the floor, giving it to Danny, before storming out of the room and up the stairs. I reached our room and just stormed in without knocking. Slamming it behind me. Ruby jumped and squealed as she spun around to face me. I froze as I realised she hadn't got any clothes on, my mouth forming an 'O'. After a second of us just standing and staring at each other she scrambled for her towel again. "Why'd you cover up?" I asked barely above a whisper. She sighed and looked down at the floor, playing with a thread on the towel. She just shrugged and turned her back to me.

"I'm not good enough." She murmered. I thought I had heard her wrong but there was no mistaking it. My heart broke at her words and I thought I was going to cry. She was everything to me, I don't know what I'd do without her. In the background you could fanitly hear Danny crying and a commotion going on downstairs, but I was only paying attention to her. Apparently my silence wasn't helping as she rambled on, "I mean Li, why are we even getting married? My step-dad is a bloody drunk that wants to ruin our lives, my mum is dead! We have to give my sister to adoptive parents because I am a rubbish sister that was never there for her! I've given you a son that won't stop crying purely because his bloody cup fell on the floor! I-"

"am perfect." I cut her off, walking towards her. The way she looked at me made my chest ache, she was so broken. But I was determined to fix her. "I Love You Ruby." I murmered, snaking my arms around her waist, "We are getting married because we are in love and I want to finally call you my wife, your step-dad isn't your real dad and he is gone now anyway, your mum is in a better place now, it's what is best for your sister making you an amazing one because you are thinking of her first much like you would for Daniel being the amazing mother you are, and that son you gave me?" I tucked my fingers under her chin and forced her to look at me in the eyes, "Is the greatest give you could ever have given me." With that I connected my lips to hers. After a second she relaxed and started kissing back. I shivered in pleasure as her arms slowly wound their way around my neck and her fingers started fiddling with the short hairs at the base on my neck.

"Ooh! Can you go get that?" Ruby suddenly pulled back as the doorbell rang. She looked very excited... "Liam!" She waved a hand in front of my face which made me stick my tongue out and lick it. "Ew!" She wiped it on her towel in disgust but with a smile creeping up her beautiful lips. "But seriously Li, I think it's Bella, Bella and JJ." Whoever they were...

"You've got to be kidding," I started, "I mean, I know you're in a towel and everything but I'm not much better in only boxers and an old shirt..." She smirked before seductively unbuttoning my shirt and slipping it down my arms as she whispered in my ear sending a shiver through my body,

"No shirt now..." I held in a moan and she giggled before prancing off towards the wardrobe and started dressing before my eyes. The little tease. I could hear the door being opened and three female voices drift up the stairs as it closed again. I was still frozen in place though, staring at my amazing girlfr- no, my fiancé, as she pulled up her red jeans and pulled on a white tank top before shrugging my button up black plaid shirt and rolling the sleeves up. "Liam!" I snapped out of my trance and my eyes lifted to meet hers, "Get dressed." She kissed my lips on the way out and closed the door behind her. I was the luckiest guy in the world.

After I was dressed appropriately I made my way down the stairs. The scene before me was Danny still crying his lungs out but for attention as his face was red and there were no tears. Me and Ruby had learnt to tell the difference now. Zayn came up and handed me a cup of tea whilst standing next to me, watching on in curiosity as Ruby talked animatedly with Bella and the two other girls she had said were call JJ and another Bella. Shelby joined in and Louis came to stand with us guys who were pretty much being rejected at the moment. I was aware of Niall coming up behind me, a little awkward as his only ex-girlfriend was standing just a few feet away.

"Beth's coming later Zayn by the way." Ruby turned around and winked at me, making me stifle a laugh. Zayn's face turned beetroot red and he slowly made his way back into the kitchen in embarrassment. I dragged Niall and Louis with me back in the kitchen as well, following Zayn, and we all sat around the table. "They're all in the kitchen." I was vaguely aware of Ruby telling Harry where we were and just seconds later he walked through the door looking much better after a shower.

"Hey, wanna just catch up in here?" Lou asked, "Fells like ages since we've just had us five guys time." We all nodded and started chatting away, joking and laughing like it was only yesterday we were sitting round the fire at Harry's place. I bounced Danny on my lap until he fell asleep in my arms and continued to laugh at the face Louis was pulling as he told his story about the girl at the supermarket giving him a free bag of carrots when he didn't want any. We heard Beth come in a few hours later but still we just sat around the table together like old times. We needed this.

"What's that smell?" Harry asked after a while and everyone turned to look at Daniel in my arms. I sighed and stood up to make my way upstairs where his changing table was. I passed through the living room on the way and Ruby smiled at me before going back to her laptop which showed a site with some photography people on it. I grinned to myself. I couldn't wait for us to get married.

I changed Danny, putting him in a new outfit, and gave him his bottle before sitting with the guys again. Louis took him off me and cradled him in his arms whilst using one hand to keep the bottle of milk in place. He was going to make a great dad.

"So Liam, excited for the wedding mate?" Zayn asked after a while.

"Totally man, I don't really care what it's like I'm just looking forward to being able to refer to her as the new Mrs Payne." Everyone awww'ed like teenage girls before we bust out laughing. "But seriously guys," I started when we'd calmed down, "I wanted to ask if you'd all be my best men?" It was silent for a couple of seconds before they all burst out cheering and stood up, pulling me into a massive group hug. Once we pulled away we decided to just order a pizza in and asked the girls what they wanted before ordering. The rest of the day then passed in a similar fashion with us guys in the kitchen and the girls in the living room, giggling away. Josh even turned up at one point and decided to crash.

No body felt like moving so we all gravitated towards the living room at around 11pm and put some movie on. Danny was asleep upstairs so me and Ruby cuddled up together on one end of a sofa and Shelby and Louis on the other. On the floor in front of us was Josh whom sat a little to close to be just friends with Bella number two. That was going to be confusing having two Bella's around... Moving onto the next sofa you found Zayn and Beth laid out together snuggled ion blankets and Harry and JJ in front of them. Finally on opposite end of the final sofa you found Niall and Bella looking very awkward but gradually moving closer together throughout the film.

Overall it was a great day spent with friends and to finish it off cuddling with my fiancé was just perfect.
