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...


23. Meet...

Ruby's P.O.V.


I was sat in bed, back in my old hospital room, with Liam sat beside me with and arm wrapped around me and the other hand playing with feet of the little baby cradled in my arms. The baby was sleeping peacefully and looked beautiful. Liam kissed my head and then my lips, smiling.

"I am so proud of you Ruby." We both smiled and kissed once more before turning our attention back to the baby squirming a little in my arms. They yawned and then opened their eyes. Their eyes were a dazzling shade of blue. The midwife - Rachael - said that the colour starts to come through in a few weeks time. They definitely had Liam's nose though. I touched the palm of their hand and their hand clenched around it. They were so adorable, wrapped up in a blanket lightly with a little white hat on. Little tufts of dark hair poked out from underneath the at though.

"Heyyy" Everyone said as they walked in, and me and Liam smiled at them.

"Who's this little beauty then?" Niall asked as he came over and looked over my shoulder. I smiled and looked at Liam who turned to everyone and said,

"Everyone, we want to introduce to the newest member of the family, little Daniel Jacob Payne." Everyone awwwww'ed and crowded round. He was a little overwhelmed and started to cry a bit so I bobbed him up and down gently and he fell back asleep. "Can I hold him?" Liam asked and I nodded eagerly, gently placing him in Liam's cradled arms. "Hey there little man." He kissed his forehead and then my lips. Everyone was smiling at us and eventually they all got their turn to hold him. When he started to cry again, Niall shakily passed him back and I giggled at how scared he was. Daniel soon calmed down and was looking straight at me.

"So when was he actually born then?" Bella asked and I replied,

"11:13pm." I was surprised everyone had stayed as it was currently 2am. Just as I thought that, they all excused themselves and went back to the tour bus. Liam was staying the night. I gave him Daniel and yawned.

"Get some sleep babe, been a long night and yesterday..." I giggled a little and nodded. He helped me with one arm, to lay down and kissed my lips before pulling up a chair next to me and looking after Daniel. I faced him and soon fell asleep. I was exhausted but so happy.


Liam's P.O.V.


I was sat in a chair by Ruby's bed, hloding Daniel and watching as they both slept. It was 3am and Ruby had fallen asleep around an hour ago. She was so beautiful. Even with her hair wild and coming out of the messy bun, and her stomach slightly swollen, she managed to look stunning in a simple hospital gown. Louis had fanited when Daniel was born, he had come to around five minutes later but was a little too late. Shelby had managed to wake him up and after he had done, she had slapped him across the face telling him he is an idiot. I had laughed obviously.

My little boy so perfect. His little nose - mine as Ruby told me - his tiny pink lips and rosy cheeks. His blue eyes that bore into your own. The tiny hands and feet that were already slightly ticklish. He was absolutely gorgeous, and all mine. Along with Ruby. I was so proud of her. At one point when she was pushing, I thought she was going to give up but she was my Ruby and carried on. She was so strong. Stronger than I could ever dream of being. We were 19 and parents. But I knew we were going to be great parents. We would be back home in a couple of days and then we could move back into our house. We were planning on extending a bit more though as Shelby and Bella would be moving in with us once we got back.

"You can go home whenever. The paper work is all done and you just need to sign out and then you can leave." Rachael popped her head in and told me. I smiled and thanked her. I figured we would leave later in the morning when she woke up. She was so tired she deserved to sleep. I placed Daniel in his small cot by the bed and climbed in next to Ruby, wrapping her in my arms. I was so happy right now. I wished it could stay like this forever. Of course not all the drama was over yet though... more was still to come...


Ruby's P.O.V.


I woke up at around 11am and felt sore all over and still kind of exhausted. Liam was asleep next to me and I looked at his perfect face. I brushed a piece of stray hair from is face and he moved a little before opening his dazzling light hazel eyes. He smiled and no words needed to be said. We were in love. He moved forward and pressed his lips against mine. It was sweet yet passionate at the same time. We both smiled into the kiss and his hands moved to my lower back, pulling me closer to him, and mine tangled in his tufty hair. We pulled away eventually when someone opened the door.

"You guys are free to go. Just sign out on your way out. I will send all the details to your local doctor. Congratulation and well done." Rachael smiled and we thanked her before she left the room. Liam climbed out of the bed and went over to Daniel, picking him up and cradling him in his arms. I smiled and managed to sit up. Liam then passed the bag of stuff from yesterday, and laid his on the bed in front of me so his feet were facing my stomach. I gently unwrapped the blanket and he looked at me almost as if he was attempting to smile which was adorable. He gurgled as I took the monkey one suit from the bag and put a nappy on him before getting him in the one suit. We then matched it with some small light blue socks and the little monkey shoes that matched. I leant over and kissed his cheek and forehead before picking him up and placing him in the cot again so Liam could help me get dressed.

"Shelby brought you this." Liam showed me a long black maxi dress that had little white birds on it, matched with some white gladiator sandles. I nodded and he helped to take off the hospital gown then put the dress and shoes on me as I couldn't bend over to put them on. He then got dressed himself in a pair of basketball shorts and a grey short sleeved shirt. He threw the bags over his shoulder and held the plastic one in one hand as I picked up Daniel. We slowly made our way to the front desk as I was walking very shakily. Liam kept an arm around my waist to support me. We signed out and said our goodbyes and thanks to the midwives before going down the lift. At the bottom we met Paul.

"Awww, look at this little cuteie! Hey little man!" Paul exclaimed as we stepped out and he made funny faces at Daniel.

"This is Daniel Jacob Payne." Liam said proudly and Paul smiled before tickling Daniel's tummy and he latched onto his finger. Paul smiled and eventually pulled his finger away which was in Daniel's mouth. Daniel then snuggled into my arm and yawned before falling asleep. We smiled and Paul led the way to the car. Luckily not many fans were around and those that were, left us alone and didn't take any photos which was nice of them. "I got it." Liam said as he took sleeping Daniel and strapped him into the carseat before getting in the other side of him. Poor Paul alone in the front haha.

I must have fallen asleep again on the way back because the next thing I was aware of was someone - Liam - carrying me from the car to the bus, and being placed on a bed then having my shoes taken off and covers thrown over me. I woke up at 1:30pm as Daniel was crying. I got out of bed and went over to him to change and feed him. I changed him first then made my way down the stairs and into the mini kitchen to warm the bottle. I gently rocked him in one arm as I used the other to put the bottle of mix in the bowl of warm water. Liam came in and took him from me, attempting to calm him as I tested the temperature on the inside of my wrist like I had been told to do. I then passed the bottle to Liam who fed Daniel, burping him every now and then. Apparently we were somewhere in South East Europe at the moment so another day and we would be home.

4pm and I was up doing the same again and then again 7pm and 10pm and 1am and 4am and 7am. At 7 I gave up trying to sleep again and just got up for good. Daniel was in his rocker next to me on the couch and I was feeding with one hand whilst I looked through my phone with the other. Me and Liam had decided to take turns getting up last night, but it didn't mean that other person got much sleep. When Daniel was done I burped him and put him back in the rocker to fall asleep. At around 7:45 Liam came down and joined me on the couch. He kissed my cheek and Daniel's forehead before sitting next to me. I shuffled over so I was sat in his lap and his arms snaked around my waist. My stomach was still quite fat but his hands just about met now. We then decided to do a twitcam.

"Hey guys! So it is like 8am here in... wherever we are, as we are on our way back home! Anyway me and Ruby decided to do a twitcam as we are up so early for Daniel and no body else is awake yet." I waved at the camera and Liam wrapped one arm around my waist as I snuggled into his side. "So we have a new addition to our family! Would you like to see him guys?" Liam asked. The comments went crazy saying things like 'Congrats' and 'Yes please!' and 'I bet he is adorable!' within seconds. It was mad. Liam then flicked the laptop around so the camera was facing Daniel who was fast asleep in his rocker which was no longer moving. We looked back at the comments and they said things like 'Awwwww' and 'He is so cute!' and 'He has your nose!'.

"He does have Liam's nose doesn't he? I thought that!" I exclaimed at one comment. Liam chuckled and kissed my nose. "One comment says how long were you in labour for?" I looked at Liam. "Oooh well I went into Labour at around 2pm and he was born at just after 11pm so around 9 hours? It was VERY long to me!" I giggled a little and Liam agreed. The comments were things like 'Wow' and 'I can't believe it took that long!' Of course there were mean comments but I just ignored them.

"How many times did he wake up last night? is one comment." Liam read out. We thought about it. "Well I went to bed at around 7pm and he woke up at 10, 1, 4 and 7. So around 4 times?" I nodded. That sounded around right. "We didn't get much sleep!" Liam said and we both laughed a little bit.

"Did anything funny happen during Labour? Alex_Iheart1D asks." (all twitters are fake btw). "Hmmmm well nothing really funny happened during..." I trailed off and Liam nodded agreeing. "At one point me and Harry were snapchatting from across the room... but Louis fainted when I actually had Daniel. That was quite funny." Liam and I chuckled, remembering when Louis suddenly just went. My leg fell an one of the midwives had to take it again.

"Who did you have with you when you had Daniel? Lexilexlex_1D4EVA asks." Liam read out. He looked at me expectantly.

"Well everyone was popping in and out during labour so the boys and Shelby and Bella, but for the actual birth I had Liam, Louis, Zayn and Shelby. Liam stayed with me the whole time." I smiled and me and Liam kissed quickly on the lips. The comments went crazy and we laughed. Daniel started to cry so I went and picked him up, which meant he calmed down immediately. His blue eyes were open and staring at me. He gurgled and I kissed his cheek before going back over to join Liam at the twitcam. Liam kissed Daniel on the head and wrapped his arm around me again. The comments were going absolutely crazy. Liam took Daniel and held him so his head was on his shoulder and he had one hand on his back and one under his bum for support. Daniel reached for his hair and started to play with it but Liam just brought him down and cradled him instead. He was going to be as cheeky as Louis I think. His eyes went to the laptop and they widened in amazement. They follwed the comment going up and I chuckled at his awed and confused expression.

"What is your favourite thing about having a baby? lovelylu_Paynelover asks." Liam read out. "Hmmmm well I am not too sure yet, I think having a little baby is so cute but he is kind of a nightmare as well. Having another person so love and look after is brilliant." I nodded in agreement and we looked at the comments.

"Well I should probably get changed, seeing as you already are, lets take you little man and change you as well." I took Daniel from Liam and kissed Liam's cheek before getting up and going upstairs. I got changed into a pair of jeans like Liam, and a black top with white lace all over it, and then I changed Daniel. I picked out a one suit that was light blue and had dinosaurs printed on it. I then put a little white hat on and a pair of white socks to go with it. He then fell asleep again and I carried him back down the stairs and joined Liam again on the couch.

"Here are my two favourite people!" Liam exclaimed. He took Daniel from my grip and cuddled him close to his warm, toned chest. We continued the twitcam for a while longer and then we had to feed Daniel and change him again so we said goodbye. Liam went and changed him whilst I heated up the bottle. 10am. This was going to be a long day.


The bus stopped and Paul got on.

"Everbody off please." We were confused as it was 11pm and Daniel had just been fed and was sleeping so I didn't want to disturb him. But Paul was being... well... Paul. So I gently took him in my arms and followed everyone else off the coach. We came face to face with home. I squealed and jumped up and down a little. Daniel woke up and started crying so I gave him to a stunned Paul before running inside the house and up to mine and Liam's room. Liam quickly followed behind me and we jumped on the bed.

"Home..." We both said. We then laughed at each other, giddy, but all laughter ceased within seconds as out of the shadows a man appeared. Liam looked confused but defensive whereas I just sat there... staring... at the man who had made my life a living hell. The man who led me to take my own life. The man whom I never wanted or thought I would see again. Anthony.
