43. Alone

***Beth's POV***

I had been back in England for about a week now. Having to say goodbye to Liam and everyone again was even worse. These people were not only my friends, they are my family. I keep thinking only three more weeks until I see Liam again. I slipped out of my bed and took a quick shower. All I was doing today was writing songs so I decided to not dress in anything fancy. I dressed in this polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=72941407. I walked downstairs and went into the kitchen. I grabbed two pieces of bread and put them in the toaster. When my toast was done I put it on a plate and went into the living room. I sat down on the couch and took out my note pad. I began writing down ideas for a song. Finally after an hour I had a few lines.
 

I said remember this moment
In the back of my mind
The time we stood with our shaking hands
The crowds in stands went wild
We were the kings and the queens
And they read off our names
The night you danced like you knew our lives
Would never be the same
You held your head like a hero
On a history book page
It was the end of a decade
But the start of an age

Long live the walls we crashed through
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
And bring on all the pretenders
One day we will be remembered


I sat there thinking of the next line and after a few minutes I had it

I said remember this feeling
I passed the pictures around
Of all the years that we stood there on the sidelines
Wishing for right now
We are the kings and the queens
You traded your baseball cap for a crown
When they gave us our trophies
And we held them up for our town
And the cynics were outraged
Screaming, "this is absurd"
'Cause for a moment a band of thieves in ripped up jeans got to rule the world


It took me a while but I had finished another one of my songs.

I said remember this moment
In the back of my mind
The time we stood with our shaking hands
The crowds in stands went wild
We were the kings and the queens
And they read off our names
The night you danced like you knew our lives
Would never be the same
You held your head like a hero
On a history book page
It was the end of a decade
But the start of an age

Long live the walls we crashed through
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
And bring on all the pretenders
One day we will be remembered

I said remember this feeling
I passed the pictures around
Of all the years that we stood there on the sidelines
Wishing for right now
We are the kings and the queens
You traded your baseball cap for a crown
When they gave us our trophies
And we held them up for our town
And the cynics were outraged
Screaming, "this is absurd"
'Cause for a moment a band of thieves in ripped up jeans got to rule the world

Long live the walls we crashed through
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
And bring on all the pretenders
I'm not afraid

Long live all the mountains we moved
I had the time of my life
Fighting dragons with you
I was screaming, "long live the look on your face"
And bring on all the pretenders
One day we will be remembered

Hold on to spinning around
Confetti falls to the ground
May these memories break our fall

Can you take a moment
Promise me this:
That you'll stand by me forever
But if God forbid fate should step in
And force us into a goodbye
If you have children someday
When they point to the pictures
Please tell them my name
Tell them how the crowds went wild
Tell them how I hope they shine

Long live the walls we crashed through
I had the time of my life with you

Long, long live the walls we crashed through
All the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
And I was screaming, "long live all the magic we made"
And bring on all the pretenders
I'm not afraid

Singing long live all the mountains we moved
I had the time of my life
Fighting dragons with you
And long, long live the look on your face
And bring on all the pretenders
One day, we will be remembered


I decided to call it Long Live. So far I had Red, Mean, A Thousand Years, A Year Without Rain, I'm Only Me When I'm With You, The Best Day and Today was a Fairytale. I sighed. I looked around, everything around me was silent and still. I went over to my laptop and opened it. I went onto skype, hoping Liam was online but he wasn't. I sat back in my chair and looked up at the ceiling. I look out the photo album that Ruth and Nicola had given me for christmas and looked at the pictures. I sighed. I felt alone. I took out my phone and went on Twitter.

@ElizabethAshton: You never realize how much you miss someone until they're gone. All the people I care about right now are half way across the world... or dead. I miss all of you.   Liam instantly tweeted back.

@Real_Liam_Payne: Right now I am standing on a stage in front of hundreds of fans but I would trade all of that just to be there next to you. I love you so much Elizabeth Ashton. 3 more weeks. xx

I smiled a little. I looked on skype and saw that El was online. I pressed video call. She instantly picked up revealing the faces of four of my best friends.

"Bethhhhhhh!" They all shouted.

"Hey there." I smiled.

"Liam just read your tweet to the entire crowd. It was so sweet." Miranda told me.

My eyes widened. "He did?!"

"Yeah. They were doing twitter questions and your tweet popped up. When Liam saw that it was your tweet you should have seen his face. He was almost in tears when he read it!" Perrie told me.

"Oh my gosh." I grinned.

"He misses you a lot Beth. Hes back to moping around and laying in his bunk all the time. I don't know what would happen if you two broke up." Emily said.

El hit her arm lightly.

"Em! They are not going to break up. They are going to get married and have little Liam and Beth babies. Of course shes going to name one of them Eleanor." El grinned.

I rolled my eyes. "I love Liam but we are not talking about marriage or babies yet."

"So whats going on Beth, you seem sad." Miranda asked.

I sighed. "Honestly, I feel like crap. Since I left tour i've written five songs. I have 8 songs in total and Simon says I need 4 more."

"Awe poor baby." Miranda said.

"I know how you feel. I hate it when my management gives my band a certain number of songs to write." Perrie told me.

I tilted my head back and groaned. "I miss all of you so much."

"We miss you so much too." El sighed.

I could see the door to the dressing room open and close.

"What are all of you doing huddled around that computer?" I heard Louis asked.

"Talking to someone on skype." El grinned.

"Who?" Liam asked immediately.

Hearing his voice made me want to melt.

"Someone." Miranda smirked.

"Is it Beth?" Liam asked franticly.

"Possibly." Perrie grinned.

Liam appeared on the screen and a huge smile spread across his face.

"Hey there." He smiled.

"I miss you." I told him.

"I miss you more." He said.

"That isn't even possible Liam. You have everyone with you in that room. Here I am sitting alone in an empty house by my self." I sighed.

"I feel so bad. I wish I could just come there right now." Liam told me.

I nodded slowly. "You have to finish tour though."

"But I miss you." He whined.

"I know Liam. I miss you too." I said.

"Have you written any new songs?" He asked.

I nodded. "I finished one about  half an hour ago. Its called Long Live. I also wrote I'm Only Me When I'm With You, The Best Day and Today Was a Fairytale." 

"Long Live, I don't know what thats about. I'm Only Me When I'm With You, about Liam, The Best Day, I don't know, and Today was a Fairytale, about some day with Liam." El smirked.

"Long Live is actually about me following my dreams and what it took to get where I am. Today was a Fairytale is about mine and Liam's first date. The other two, yes they are about Liam." I smiled.

"Might as well call the album Liam right?" Miranda grinned.

"If shes going to call her album Liam we should have called Take Me Home, Beth." Liam grinned.

"Boys we need to go." I heard Paul say.

"But we're talking to Beth!" Louis whined.

"Tell Beth that we need to go." Paul sighed.

"Try telling Liam that. Now that hes seen her face he will not let go of this laptop." Perrie told him.

"Liam, you can talk to her tomorrow." Paul told him.

Liam groaned and looked back at me. "I miss you and I can't wait for three weeks from now. I love you and i'll talk to you tomorrow."

"I love you too. I miss you. Bye." I sighed.

"Bye." He said.

We both hung up at the same time. I sat there for a moment looking at the blank screen which only a few seconds ago showed Liam's face. I again, felt lonely.
