17. Concert

***Beth's POV***

Today was the boy's first concert since they got back. I have to admit, I am really excited. The last time I heard Liam sing in person was on the X Factor. I'm sure Liam's voice is even more incredible now. I slowly slipped out of my bunk and made my way to the lounge where Harry, Liam and Louis were sitting eating bowls of cereal, still in their pajamas and watching Grown Ups. I sat down in between Harry and Liam.

"Do you boys always watch movies?"I asked.

"Yep. Its really the only think we can do."Liam told me.

"Wow. That sucks. So we will be in here until sound check?"I asked.

"Yeah. Its all good though. We've got plenty of movies."Louis said.

I got up and walked over to the mini kitchen. I got a bowl and poured some Lucky Charms into it. I grabbed the milk out of the fridge and poured the mild. I grabbed a spoon and walked back over to my seat where I watched the rest of Grown Ups with them.

"What should we watch now?"Harry asked.

"Toy Story."Liam and I said at the same time.

Louis and Harry looked at Liam and I.

"I wouldn't second guess you two as best friends. And no, we are not going to watch Toy Story for the hundredth time."Harry groaned.

We all thought for a while. Liam turned to me "Bethie, remember when we watched The Shining at like 3:00 in the morning when we were 10?"

My eyes widened at the memory.  "Yes Liam, how could I forget the most horrifying moment of my life?"

"You two watched The Shining when you were 10 years old? Are you two fearless or something?"Harry asked us.

"Liam made me watch it. He thought it was funny how I kept hiding under my blanket screaming my head off."I said.

Liam laughed. "It was kinda funny."

I hit his arm playfully. "Shut up Liam or i'll tell them about the time we watched Bag of Bones."

His eyes widened. "You wouldn't. You promised not to tell a living soul."

"What if I told you I was crossing my fingers behind my back when I made that promise?"I grinned mischievously.

His eyes widened even more. Liam began chasing me around the bus.

"Elizabeth Leah Ashton! I will never tell you anything again!"Liam shouted.

I ran off the bus and Liam followed. He chased me for a while until I felt his strong arms wrap around my waist from behind, catching me.

"You thought you could run from me?"He asked.

I grinned knowing I would never be able to out run him. He was on the reserve list for the Olympics.I almost was but I was a few seconds below the last person put on the list.

"I know that."I sighed. "And I didn't realize we were using surnames Mr. Liam James Payne."

"Were you really crossing your fingers behind your back?"He asked, smirking.

I grinned. "Of course not! I would never break a promise either!"

He hugged me. "Good. I was worried there for a second."

"Lets go back to the bus. We don't want paps getting pictures of us walking around in our pajamas."I said.

He looked down at our outfits. "Yeah, that might be a good idea."

We walked back onto the bus and saw that Niall and Zayn were up and they were all sitting around the lounge talking. They were all huddled. When they saw Liam and I they immediately pulled out of it.

"You four seem secretive. Wanna tell us what you were talking about?"I asked them.

"Nope!"Louis grinned.

I rolled my eyes. "Fine. Liam and I will have our own huddle and not tell you about what we're talking about."

- 5 hours later-

We had just arrived at the arena where their concert would be. I was wearing this polyvore.com/lt/set?id=69514366. The boys had just gotten done with Hair and Makeup.  I followed the boys and Paul backstage where we went into the soundcheck room. I stood back as fans began filling into the room. They instantly shouted and screamed, many held up signs. Soon enough the boys began practicing Little Things. The entire time Liam was looking at me. A girl about 8 years old walked over to me.

"Excuse me? Are you Liam's mystery girl?"She asked.

"Well depends on what you mean by mystery girl."I smiled.

"Are you his girlfriend?"She asked.

I shook my head. "No, Liam is my best friend. We have been best friends since we were 5."I told her.

"Aw. I was hoping you two were together. You two would look really cute together."She told me, smiling.

I blushed a little. If only she knew. "Who know what the future holds. For now we are just best friends. In the future it could be more."

That put a smile on her face. "I hope it does happen. What is your name?"

"Elizabeth Ashton."I told her. "Whats yours?"

"Madelyn Gregory."She told me.

"Well it was nice to meet you Madelyn."I told her.

"Bye Elizabeth!"She called, walking back over to her mum.

I saw Liam grinning at me. He motioned for me to come over quickly. I walked over to him.

"That was a really nice thing you did Bethie. I'm glad you get along with my fans."He whispered in my ear.

I smiled at him. "Well that little girl was really sweet. I'll tell you about her later."

He nodded and I walked back over to my spot. Fans began asking Liam.

"You will all find out who that was later tonight."Liam smiled.

Sound check ended and we walked to the dressing rooms. I sat down on the couch and Liam came over to sit next to me. Lou also walked in with Lux.

"LUX!"Harry smiled.

"More excited to see Lux than me I see?"Lou asked, raising her eyebrows.

Harry grinned at her cheekily. "You know I always miss you Lou."

"Good. Alright boys. get into your clothes and we can go to rehearsal."Lou said.

The boys all went of to change and Lou turned to me. "And you must be Elizabeth, Liam's best friend?"

"Yeah."I told her.

"I'm Louise Teasdale, the boy's stylist.Please call me Lou though. And this,"She said looking at Lux."Is my daughter Lux."

"Its nice to meet you Lou and Lux. And please call me Beth."I smiled.

Lou and I started a conversation and the boys came back wearing this weheartit.com/entry/43236113/via/VintageCowGirl (A/N: Liam without the tattoo and buzz cut. His hair is still the short style). I couldn't get over how amazing Liam looked. I smiled at them.

"Wow... you guys look great."I smiled.

"Yeah, we have to try just to look good. You always look good."Liam smiled.

I blushed a little. "No. Stop it. I always look horrible. Now stop making this about me. You all look great, always."

Liam shook his head. "Bethie, you stop it. You are beautiful. Don't ever think that you are not because you would just be lying to yourself."

Wait... did Liam just call me beautiful?

"Alright boys! Lets go to rehearsals."Lou said, breaking the awkward moment.

I couldn't help but steal a few glances at Liam. Louis grabbed my arm and pulled me to the side.

"Tell me the truth Beth. Do you or do you not like Liam like that?"Louis asked seriously. "If you tell me the truth I swear on my life that I will not tell a soul. I just need to know."

I sighed. "You promise?"

"Elizabeth, I promise on my life. I'm not the type of person to break a promise."He said.

"Fine. I don't just like Liam, I love him. I have loved him forever but he will never love me. I will always be that best friend."I told him.

Louis grinned. "I knew it."

I rolled my eyes. "Not a soul can know."

"Cross my heart."He told me.

We walked into the rehearsing room and Louis went to join the other boys.

"Bethie, what song do you want us to sing?"Liam asked me.

I shrugged. "Just sing a song that you really like."

He nodded. They began to sing First Last Kiss. The girl that Liam was singing about in the song popped into my head. I looked at Liam who was smiling the entire song. Wow, he must really love this girl. They sang a few more songs after that. After rehearsal ended we walked back to the dressing rooms. The show was going to start in 20 minutes. The opening act was currently doing her act.

-20 minutes later-

I watched from the sides as the boys rushed on stage and the fans screamed.

"Hellooooo San Francisco!"Liam yelled into the microphone.

The fans screamed louder.

"How is everyone tonight?"Niall asked.

The crowd went wild. They began their first song, Live While We're Young. After that song they sang Summer Love which Niall wrote. 

"Now, the next song I wrote. Its about a girl who I love but she just doesn't know it yet."Liam smiled.

They began to sing First Last Kiss. I sighed looking at Liam. A few times he would look backstage at me and flash me a smile. The twitter questions came next.

"ALright, first question."Liam said, looking at the screen. "Liam, who is your mystery girl? Is the the girl who was at soundcheck with you?"

I saw Liam smile. "That mystery girl is here tonight. She is not my girlfriend though. She is my best friend."Liam turned to look at me."In fact, i'm staring at her right now. Who wants her to come out and answer questions with us?"

The crowd went completely wild. Liam motioned for me to come out. I slowly walked out into the bright lights and stood by Liam's side. The crowd screamed like crazy. I waved to the fans.

"This is my best friend Elizabeth Ashton. We have been best friends since we were 5 years old. She is currently on tour with us."Liam grinned.

"Do we have any questions for Beth?"Louis asked the fans.

The next question popped up on the board. Liam handed me the microphone so I could read the question. 

"Elizabeth, how did you and Liam meet?"I read. I turned to the crowd. "Well, it was the first day of primary school and I was sitting alone coloring and Liam asked if he could color with me while everyone else around us were playing. We soon became best friends and the pictures we drew, we gave to eachother. I gave the picture that I drew, which was a red flower, to Liam and Liam gave me the picture of a spaceship that he drew. We still have them and are both framed."

The crows aw-ed. Liam and I grinned. I read the next question.

"Elizabeth, would you ever date Liam?"I read.

I blushed a little. "Um..."I looked at Louis who was grinning. "I- I don't know. It might ruin our friendship."

I saw Liam look at the ground. "Why don't we move on to the next question?"Liam asked.

"Do any of the boys fancy Elizabeth?"Louis read.

"We all love Beth, she is like our best friend. I don't think any of us like her like that though."Harry said, stealing a quick glance at Liam.

"Heres a question for Liam."Zayn said, reading off the screen. "Liam, have you ever fancied Elizabeth?"

Liam blushed. "No, it would ruin our friendship."He said, repeating my words.

 My heard dropped. I sighed and looked at Louis. He walked over to me.

"Just remember that we are on stage. We cant always tell the truth."Louis whispered in my ear.

"Heres another question. Louis, what did you just whisper in Elizabeth's ear?"Harry asked.

"Nothing that concerns any of you peasants."He grinned.

Harry looked taken back. "L-louis... I need to tell you something."

"Yes?"He asked.

"Kevin... he... hes dead. Hes gone Lou. Niall threw him under the tour bus."Harry said solemnly.

Louis's eyes widened. "WHAT?! BETTER RUN LEPRECHAUN!"

I watched as Louis chased Niall around the stage. As I looked around at all of them, I smile, knowing that these 5 crazy, childish boys were my best friends.
