Where I Am Home [ ONE DIRECTION one-shot ]



1. 1.

It was an early morning in July as Liam Payne walked down the cobble stone road. There were beautiful tulips blooming and birds chirping from trees in the distance.


He inhailed deeply and a smile spread across his lips as he came closer to his four best friends, Louis, Niall, Harry and Zayn.


Liam sat down in the grass next to them and whispered a quiet "Hello boys".


The wind started to pick up and blew softly against Liam's skin. He chuckled to himself.


"Oh Niall, before I forget, I bought this for you" Liam said, placing a small four leaf clover down next to Niall. "Thought you might like it."


The boys all sat together for what seemed like hours beneath the rising sun. It grew in the sky and blazed down over them, making Liam sweat.


"So I was thinking the other day," Liam laughed as he spoke to all four of the boys, "remember the time you slipped on cake Harry? That really gave me such a laugh."


All day they sat there, reminiscing on the old times that they had during the first few shows. The first interviews, and the first photoshoots had long faded from their memories though.


It was hard for Liam to even remember exactly what cities they had visited. He couldn't find the names of all the TV shows they had sppeared on in his mind anymore either.


But there was one memory Liam had that he would never forget.


"Remember the nerves we felt during the XFactor boys? We were sure we wouldn't going to make it and when we were eliminated it was so hard. Who would have known what we would have become."


His friends were silent after he said this, but he understood. Liam knew that no words could ever describe what they had gone through together.


They met as five strangers, became one band, and one family. They were truly brothers.


"By the way Louis, I saw Eleanor the other day. She is doing alright, she says she misses you and she hopes to see you soon," Liam said.


He sighed and reached out his had to Louis. "I bet you miss her too huh? It's really sad that you haven't seen her lately."


The sun was now starting to make it's descent from the heavy, blue sky above. Liam heard his stomach growl but brushed it off. Having this reunion with his friends was so much more important to him.


"I want you boys to know that I'm okay. After we broke up, I realized that there was more in life than just being famous."


"I really do enjoy writing, even though my grammar is poor." He laughed. He could hear all the other boys laughing too around him. This made him smile.


"And i was even well enough to visit Josh a few months ago. Unfortunatelly, he is not doing as well. Josh has stopped walking about a year ago, but he has a wheelchair."


"I told him not to worry. He'd get the feeling in his legs back eventually."


Now darkness was starting to loom over the five boys sitting together in the grass. The chirping birds were replaced by the peeping of frogs and the buzzing of mosquitos.


Liam realized that it must have been getting later than any of them had expected.


"Maybe I should get going then boys? We could all use some rest I think."


He bit his lip as he glanced at his brother one last time.


Four perfect, shiny tomb stones stood in front of him.


Each one had a single tulip laying across it, flowers in which Liam had placed there.


"I really do miss it though," he whispered. "It's sad that we all grew up so fast."


Liam reached over and picked his cane up which was leaning against a nearby tree. He struggled to pull himself up off the ground. A groan escaped his lips as his knees buckled from his weight.


Finally standing up, he re-adjusted his glasses and took one last look at One Direction.


Liam was the last one alive


but still sickly stricken with old age.


"If we could only turn back time...."


He said to himself beneath his breath before shuffling back down the cobble stone road.


One week later, Liam was able to join his friends.


One more tomb stone was added to that graveyard.


They were reunited once again.


and got to play one last show together.


and the whole world would never forget about the boys on the stairs....
