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...


21. Things get going

Ruby's P.O.V.


"Rubyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy" I groaned as I felt myself giving in to Louis begging to watch Skyfall again instead of Whip It which I wanted to watch

"Louisssssssssssssss!" I begged back. No body cared apart from us. We were on the tour bus and I was nearly 38 weeks pregnant. Their last show was tonight so they were tired and wanted to watch films with me, Bella and Shelby. I was sat against Liam who had both hands on my bump, rubbing it gently as he drifted off tiredly. Louis gave me the puppy dog eyes and I cracked. "Urgh fine. But next time we are watching Whip It! Okay?" He nodded and grinned before placing the disk in the DVD player. I fell asleep around mid way through.

I woke up in the early hours of the morning, still in Liam's embrace on the sofa of the tour bus, with back ache. I slowly untangled myself and got up, rubbing my back with my hands as I walked through to the kitchen. I held on to the side as I poured myself a cup of water and made a sandwhich with jam and chocolate spread in. What? I was craving it. I stood there, leaning against the counter, eating my sandwich and drinking my water as I thought about what it would be like with a baby. We would be home in less than a week. I missed our house. I had only stayed there like a week but it kind of became home. I wonder if it is going to be a girl or a boy...

"What are you doing up at 4am?" Zayn came into the kitchen and made himself a milkshake before leaning on the counter next to me.

"Woke up as back ached." I explained. He nodded and continued to sip his drink as I washed my stuff up. I rubbed my stomach as the baby kicked and Zayn looked at me weirdly. "You wanna feel?" I asked. His face lit up and he nodded. So I took his hands and placed them on my bump.

"Woah..." He said as the baby kicked. I nodded and he smiled. "Hey baby, this is your Uncle Zayn. Your favourite Uncle right?" He said to my bump. The baby kicked and we both laughed. "Not much longer huh?" I shook my head and we both made our way back out to the main bus.

"Can you help me up to bed?" I asked Zayn. He nodded and took my hand in his, going up behind me. At one point the bus jolted and I fell back and he caught me.

"Steady there." He murmered. I thanked him and eventually we got up and I made my way to the bed. Zayn climbed into his bed and I climbed into mine. "Night Rub's."

"Night Zayn." Half a couple of hours later I feel Liam get into bed next to me and wrap his arms around me. I look at the bed side clock to read it as... 11:30am! Woah... "Liam?" I ask.

"Yeah babe?" He kisses my shoulder and I decide to change my question.

"Where are everyone else?" He looks at me and smirks before climbing to hover over me and kissing my lips.

"Out." Is all he said. It was all I needed as well. With that our clothes were off and I think you can figure what happened from there...



"That was good..." Liam trailed off. I blushed but nodded and he kissed my head. We were laying under the covers with our legs entangled. "Danny or Cammie should be coming soon." He said after a while, leaning his ear on my bare bump. I nodded again and laughed as he was startled by a kick to the ear. He grinned and pecked my lips. "38 weeks today right?" I nodded yet again and he rolled his eyes.

"Technically it could come ay tim- Ow!" I cut off as a sharp pain hit my lower back. I hissed as it came again and Liam hovered over the top of me looking worried. He kept asking what was wrong but I just laid there. Sh*t I thought as 'water' rushed out from me. "Liam..." he looked almosy scared. But asked what. "My water just broke..." His eyes widened and he froze for a minute until another contraction hit and I hissed in pain, then he was up in a flash, shoving on some boxers and a pair of jeans along with a random shirt which he buttoned up wrong. He then got me into some sweats and a hollister shirt and grabbed my bag before helping me down the stairs.

"So the contractions have to be four minutes apart before we can go to the hospital so shall we time from your next one? or...?" I smiled and waddled over to him.

"That's fine. Just stop panicking." He nodded and went to get me a glass of water. I started to pace around and when a contraction hit I put my hands on the back of the sofa and rocked a little from side to side. Liam then came out and rubbed my back a bit and timed from the end of the contraction. "Liam! Make it hurry up!" I stuck my tongue out at him and he chuckled. "Can you call Shelby and Zayn?" I asked. He nodded and went to get his phone.

"They said they're on their way back and will probably be here in around half an hour." I nodded and another contraction came so Liam clicked on his timer and let me lean on him as he rubbed my back and I bent over slightly. "Five minutes that time. Not much longer and we can go." I nodded and squeezed my eyes tight shut. "Deep breaths babe." I followed his instructions and the contraction eventually passed. I started to pace again and Liam re-did his shirt so the buttons were right. A few minutes passed and Liam was washing up the cup in the kitchen my water was in, and a contraction hit but it was worse this time.

"LIAM!" He ran out and helped me over to the wall where I put my hands and bent over, moving from side to side. "Liam... It hurts so much." He kissed my hair and ran to get a wet flannel from the bathroom and wiped my forehead. I hissed in pain and squeezed Liam's hand. If that was an early one I didn't even want to wait to find out what the later ones would be like. My phone rang and I made my way over to it. "Hello?"

"RUBY! Are you okay? I heard you had gone into labour! I am on my way with Zayn and Shelby, the others are coming later on." Paul answered

"I'm fine, we are waiting for a little until the contractions are a bit closer together, how far away are you?" I asked.

"Okay, and we're around two minutes away. See you soon." We hung up and Liam came and sat next to me on the sofa with the timer on his phone.

"Oooh, that hurt..." I squeezed both Liam's hand and a cushion as another contraction came. He rubbed my hand with his thumb and wiped my forehead with the cloth before kissing it.

"Four and a half minutes, getting there babe." I nodded and leant against him. At that point Zayn and Shelby barged through the door closely followed by Paul.

"We are here! Don't panic!" Zayn shouted and frantically ran towards us. Me and Liam smirked before bursting into laughter. Zayn looked genuinely confused but Shelby just knocked the back of his head before taking a seat on the other side of me.

"So how you doing then?" She asked.

"Not too bad, four and a half minutes so not much longer before we go. Quite painful though." She nodded and rubbed my back. Paul came up behind and kissed me on the cheek before massaging my shoudlers. My friends were too good to me. I started to relax as everyone talked a bit until another contraction came and I hissed. "Liammmm... It hurts..." I scrunched my face and gasped as it became more intense. Zayn was trying to get me to breathe properly as Paul wiped my forehead and Shelby rubbed my back and I squeezed Liam's hand. Eventually it passed and I sunk back into the seat, looking at Liam expectantly.

"Four minutes 10 seconds. We should probably go now. I nodded and Zayn grabbed my bag as Paul picked up his keys. Liam helped me up and I held one of his hands as the other went around my waist and I held Shelby's in my other as she lead the way to the car. There were a couple of fans around but they got the gist of what was happening and moved out the way. One of them handed me a bag and I took it gratefully smiling at them. She was a young girl maybe around my age. She looked familiar but I didn't have time to dwell on it as Liam helped me into the car and got in after me as Zayn ran around to the other side and Shelby got in the front with Paul. As we were driving Liam rubbed my bump and I looked in the bag. I didn't have time to read the letter but there was a baby-grow which was a monkey and it even had a hood with little ears on. It was so cute! I showed Liam and he smiled. Before I could look at the rest, a contraction came and I gripped Liam and Zayn's hands. Liam rubbed my stomach gently as Zayn massaged my lower back. I bent forwards as the intensity increased. "Breathe for me Ruby." Liam said and I tried to do as he said but it didn't work. "Like this." He started to breathe in the right way and I copied him.

"You're doing great Rub's." Zayn said and he found the flannel they were using earlier and put it on my forehead as Liam tied my hair up in a messy bun. "Not much further to the hospital." Just as Zayn said that we pulled up. Liam hopped out and helped me out. I wobbled on my feet as the contraction came to an end, and Liam just picked me up bridal style. I giggled a little and he looked down at me, pecking my lips as he walked. Zayn checked me in and they showed us the way to a room. The nurse left and Liam in the room with a gown for me to change into. I stood facing him and he pulled my shirt over my head. I then grabbed onto his shirt and clung to it as a contraction hit me. He grabbed my hips and swayed us slowly from side to side as I bent over a little. It hurt more and I let out a little squeak in pain and he kissed my head, trying to make me feel better. Eventually we got me changed into the gown and a midwife came in.

"Okay Ruby, my name is Rachael and I will be delivering your baby today, shall we see how far along you are?" She asked. I nodded and Liam helped my up on the bed so Rachael could check how far along I was. "Okay you are 6 centimetres so you are doing well." I nodded and grabbed Liam's hand as another contraction came and Rachael left, saying she would be back later to check again. Liam grabbed a cloth and wet it with cold water, wiping along my forehead and getting me to breathe right. I gripped onto the bed sheets with the other hand and groaned in pain.

"Can you ring the others?" I asked, gasping for air. He nodded and kissed my cheek as he got his phone out. Before he rung them he helped me turn around so I was on all fours and rocking from side to side on the bed. He rubbed my back with one hand and rung Louis with the other.


Liam's P.O.V. (Sorry been so long!)

I rung Louis and he picked up on the first ring.

"Hello? Liam?"

"Hey mate, she is 6 centimetres and wants you all at the hospital now. Can you get here soon?" I asked as I rubben her back with my other hand. She groaned and I kissed her head, wishing there was something I could do.

"Yeah, sure mate we'll be there as soon as we can." With that we hung up. I sat there thinking for a minute until I was brought back to reality by Ruby letting out a little scream. I felt bad and all I could do was tell her comfortig things, rub her and get her to breathe right.

"Okay Ruby, not too much longer. Just think, we'll have a little baby at the end of all this. She was breathing heavily and scrunched up in pain. Shelby and Zayn came in and Paul was waiting outside. Shelby immediately ran to her other side and helped her whilst Zayn came to my side. "She's 6 centimetres." I told Zayn and he nodded. "Just over half way." We both sighed and Ruby screamed as another contraction came. This was going to be a long labour.
