22. Finally

***Beth’s POV***
“Beth are you almost ready?” Louis called from the front of the bus.
“Yeah!” I called back, slipping my heels on.
I was wearing this I walked out to the front of the bus and the boys grinned.
“You look so beautiful.” Liam told me.
“Thanks. By the way, I’m still mad at you.” I told him flatly.
“You look amazing Beth.” Louis smiled.
“Thank you. Now can we please go before Niall jumps out of his pants because he’s so excited?” I smirked.
“Yeah.” Louis laughed.
We all walked outside of the bus to one of the cars. We got in and Louis pulled out of the parking lot.
“Good thing we don’t have a concert tonight.” Niall said. “I wouldn’t want to miss this for anything.”
“We know Niall. You don’t need to remind us.” I told him.
20 minutes later Louis pulled into the driveway of a huge house. We got out of the car and Louis handed the keys to the valet. We walked up the steps to the front door and immediately saw Justin. He smiled when he saw us and walked over.
“Hey, glad you could make it.” He said to the boys.  He turned to me. “ Elizabeth, it is so nice to meet you. I have heard a lot about you. Only good things.”
“Well we wouldn’t want bad things about me floating around now would we?” I smiled.
“No we wouldn’t.” He said.
Him and Niall began a conversation and the rest of us went to socialize. About 2 hours later Liam tapped me on the shoulder. I turned to him.
“What?” I sighed.
“Can I please talk to you?” He asked.
“You had to wait until we were at the party? Really Liam? Bad timing.” I told him.
“Its almost like you never have time for me anymore! All you do is hang out with Louis and play Call of Duty with Niall and Harry. When was the last time you and I did something together?!” He asked.
“Hm. About two seconds ago. We’re talking Liam. That’s doing something.” I told him.
“I mean like go out somewhere.” He said.
“Well, the last time I checked, I’m mad at you.” I told him.
“Bethie, it’s been almost 3 days now! I told you I was sorry!” He said.
“You know what Liam? I don’t want to do this right now. I refuse to fight with you at a party.” I said.
I walked away and found Louis. A slow song came on.
“Dance with me?” Louis asked.
“Of course.” I smiled.
He put his arms around my waist and I wrapped my arms around his neck. We danced slowly to the music. I looked across the room and saw Liam dancing with a girl who had almost bright orange skin and bleached hair. He was glaring at me and smirking at me so I returned the favor. I rolled my eyes at him and turned back to Louis.
“Trying to make him jealous are we?” Louis smirked.
“Two can play this game.” I told him.
“Did you see the girl he is dancing with? She looks like a Barbie pained orange.” Louis grinned.
“So I’m not the only one?” I laughed.
He shook his head. “If he’s actually trying to make you jealous, its not working.”
I glared at Liam again. Niall, Zayn and Harry came over to us. Niall and Harry looked pretty sick.
“Whoa, what happened?” I asked.
“Its something they ate I think. We should get back to the bus. One of you go find Liam.” Zayn said.
I walked over to Liam.
“Get that slut off of you. We’re leaving.” I told him.
“What if I don’t want to?” He asked.
“What if I make you? Come with us or stay here. The bus is leaving early tomorrow morning anyway. Have fun in California.” I told him.
Liam rolled his eyes and followed me to where the boys were. We thanked Justin for inviting us and walked out. We got into our car and drove silently for a while.
“Beth, why are you acting like this?” Liam asked.
I turned and glared at him. “Did you see that carrot rubbing up against you?”
“Oh, was someone jealous?” He smirked.
“Jealous of that carrot? No. Jealous of you? Ew no, I don’t want to rub up against a carrot. Do I look like a cheese grater?” I told him.
“Well I at least found out who your mystery guy is.” Liam told me.
“Oh really?” I asked.
“Yeah. Louis. You two can’t hide from me forever.” He said.
“Are you really still on that?! What the hell is your problem Liam?! Louis is not the guy in the song! Am I not allowed to have friends? Oh wait I forgot, you damn own me!” I yelled.
“Beth, that’s not what I meant.” He said, immediately sounding sorry.
The car stopped at a stoplight and I hopped out into the cold California night. It was pouring rain. Perfect.
“Where are you going Beth!? Get back in the car! You’re going to get sick!” Liam said.
“No! I’m walking back to the damn bus! I can’t stand to be in that car with you! All we do is fight anymore!” I yelled.
I ran away from the car, my heels not working to my advantage. I ran over to a park with a big field. I was already soaked. I quickly slipped off my shoes.
“Beth wait!” Liam called, running after me.
“What Liam?! You want to tell me how I’m a horrible best friend?! That having other friends is wrong?!” I yelled through the rain.
“No Beth! You have to idea how much you mean to me! I hate fighting with you!” He yelled back through the rain.
“Liam you know what?! Why don’t you go find that mystery girl of yours and tell her how much you damn love her! I will never mean as much to you as she does!” I yelled.
“You have no idea Elizabeth! How about that mystery guy of yours?! Why don’t you go find him?!” Liam yelled.
“You know what Liam?! Why do you even care?!”I screamed.
I began running away when there was a slinece. Then I heard Liam speak.
“Because I love you. I love you so much Elizabeth Ashton.” He said.
I stopped in my tracks. Did he… I turned around and looked at Liam who was a few yards away from me.
“What?” I asked.
“I love you. I always have.” He told me.
I stood there for a moment before I found myself running towards him. The next thing I knew he was lifting me up, I pressed my lips to his and instantly felt fireworks. This was almost like The Notebook. I pulled away.
“I love you too Liam. You are the mystery guy.” I told him.
He grinned. “You’re the mystery girl.”
He pressed his lips to mine again. “You have no idea how long I have wanted to do that.”
“About time!” We heard Louis call.
We looked up and saw the boys standing there smirking at us. Liam turned back to me.
“You told me to tell my mystery girl how much I love her. Well mystery girl, I love you so much.  I have loved you since I have known what love is.  I was just too afraid you wouldn’t feel the same.” He told me.
I kissed him again. “I have loved you forever. When I think of love, I think of you. I love you so much Liam James Payne.”
“I love you more Elizabeth Leah Ashton.” He told me. “After 14 years, Elizabeth, will you please be mine?”
“You had me at after 14 years. And you don’t even have to say please.” I told him.
His lips crashed onto mine again and we just stood there, kissing in the rain. A few minutes later we walked over to the boys,.
“So which one of us won the bet?” Harry asked.
“The bet?” I asked.
“We all bet on when you two would end up together.” Louis told us.
“Wait… what?” I asked.
“From the moment you two saw each other, the way you looked at each other, it was completely obvious.” Niall said.
“Why don’t we get back to the bus before we all catch Pneumonia.” Zayn suggested.
“Yeah. We wouldn’t want to get sick. Not before a concert.” I said.
We all walked back to the car, Liam’s fingers intertwined with mine. We all got into the car and Liam held me in his arms.
“I love you.” He whispered in my ear.
“I love you more.” I replied.
“That’s impossible.” He whispered.
He kissed me softly and at that very moment I was on top of the world.

(A/N: When they had their first kiss in the park... in the rain... its just like the famous kiss in The Notebook except Liam is lifting her up.)
