***Beth's POV***

I slowly crept up the stairs of my house, savoring the last few moments I had of peace. The moment I walked through the door, I knew he would be waiting for me. I placed my hand on the gold doorknob and turned it slowly. I opened the door quietly, attempting to slip inside un nothiced but no such luck. My father walked out of the kitchen with hatred in his eyes.

"When I ask you where you are, you fucking tell me!"He seethed. "Got it?!"

I nodded quickly avoiding his gaze. "Now where the hell were you with your dumb dog?!"

"I-I was at the school field. And... I went to see mum."I whispered, loud enough for him to hear.

"You went to see her? What, did you trash her grave?"He yelled.

"No! I would never do that!"I screamed, tears forming in the corners of my eyes.

"Bullshit! I don't ever want you to go see her again. Do you hear me?!"He yelled in my face, pinning me up against the wall.

I nodded quickly, fighting back tears. He punched my hard in the stomach and I winced. He slapped my cheek a few times.

"Why do you do this?"I choked out, holding my stomach.

"I do this because you killed your mother!"He yelled.

"I didn't! I didn't kill her!"I screamed.

He pushed me up against the wall again. "Yes. You. Fucking. Did. It was that last text that you sent her that caused her to crash."He yelled in my face.

I pushed him away, he tried to pin me up against the wall again but I pushed him away.

"I won't let you treat me like this! You are my fucking father! How can you stand to do this to a girl you used to treasure and cradle in your arms. How can you bear to look me in the eyes and tell me I am worthless?! Every time I walk through the door you are there with an excuse to hurt me! I am done being pushed around and abused by my own father!"I yelled.

He stood there silently. I ran up the stairs to my room quickly and slammed and locked the door behind me. I had finally done it. I had finally stood up to him. It felt good.

***Liam's POV***

The lads and I sat at the table at my mum's house. We were eating dinner and I was just picking at my food with my fork.

"Liam, whats wrong?"My mum asked.

"I uh.. nothing."I mumbled.

"We ran into a girl named Elizabeth today."Louis told her.

My mum's eyes widened. "Liam, your Elizabeth?"

I nodded my head.

"Oh that poor girl. Her mum died last year in a car crash. There have been rumors going around that her father abuses her!"My mum told me.

That got my attention. I looked up at my mum. "He does what?!"I asked angrily.

"Liam hun its just a rumor. I'm sure its not true."My mum told me.

"I swear, if that asshole has laid a finger on her..."I seethed.

"Well why don't you go over after dinner to see if she's ok?"My mum asked me.

"Yeah. You lads can stay here. I want to go alone. She still lives in the same house?"I asked.

My mum nodded. "And Liam, if her father.. if he does do that... Beth can come live here. I swear, that girl has been like a daughter to me since you two met."

-After Dinner-

"I'll be back soon."I told the boys.

"Don't take too long!"Louis smirked.

I rolled my eyes and walked out the door. I got into my car and drove to Beth's house. When I arrived I looked up at her huge house. So many memories had gone on here. I missed her. I got out of my car and walked to the front door. I knocked on the door.

"Elizabeth! Get the door!"I heard her father yell from inside.

A few moments later the door opened.

"Oh my god! Are you stalking me now?!"She asked, about to slam the door in my face.

"Please Beth. Please just let me explain."I said.

She rolled her eyes. "What is there to explain Liam?"

"Explain why I am such an ass."I told her.

"Well at least you know what you are."She mumbled.

I noticed a ted mark on her cheek. It was the shape of a hand.

"Bethie..."I whispered, my eyes wide.

"What?"She asked.

"Did... did he slap you?"I asked.

She looked like she had seen a ghost. She covered her cheek with her hand. 

"No."She told me.

I knew she was lying.

"Elizabeth Ashton. Tell me the truth. Did he hit you?!"I asked.

"No Liam!"She lied again. "Please leave!"

She slammed the door in my face. A few moments later the door opened again and her father appeared.

"You fucking hit her!"I yelled at him.

He looked taken back. "I would never do such a thing! Now get off my property Payne! I don't want you coming back here. I don't want you to contact her or even look at her!"

He slammed the door in my face. I sat there for a while before I wen't back to my car. I got in and drove back to my house. When I arrived I flung the door open angrily. I slammed it behind me.

"Liam?"My mum asked.

"He hit her mum! He fucking hit her! I saw the mark on her cheek! Th worst part is, she is denying it!"I yelled.

My mums hands flew over her mouth in shock and her eyes widened. The lads came into the room.

"That bastard hit her?!"Harry asked, his eyes wide.

I nodded, trying to hold tears. I was angry. I was scared. I was worried. And worst of all, I felt hopeless.
