32. Meeting The Paynes

***Beth’s POV***
Today we were all flying back to our home towns to spend Thanksgiving with our families. Liam and I sat on a plane along with Emily and Miranda. I sat next to Liam, my head rested on his shoulder.
“Liam?” I asked.
“What if the rest of your family doesn’t like me. I know your mum and dad and Ruth and Nicola like me but what about everyone else?” I asked him.
He turned to look at me.
“Bethie, I promise, they will love you. You are so likable. Also, you are the best thing that has happened to me. If I love you, they love you.” He told me.
I gave him a small smile. “I’m the best thing that happened to you? What about being in One Direction?”
He shook his head. “Being in One Direction is nothing compared to you. You are my inspiration when writing songs, you are the reason why I wake up every morning with a smile on my face. The reason why my previous relationships ever worked out is because I knew they would never be as amazing, beautiful and funny as you. When I decided to ask you if I could draw with you when we were 5, that was the best decision I have ever made. Because I got you.” He told me.
I was grinning madly at him. “That was the most perfect thing I have ever heard anyone say. I love you so much Liam Payne.”
He pressed his lips to mine. “I love you more Elizabeth Ashton.”
-Skipping plane ride-
Liam and I walked off the plane with Emily and Miranda by our side. We walked to baggage claim and grabbed our bags. Liam and I said goodbye to Miranda and Emily and went to find Liam’s mum who was picking us up. We walked outside and instantly spotted Liam’s mum grinning.
“Liam! Beth! Its so good to see you two!” Liam’s mum smiled, embracing us in a huge hug.
“Its so great to see you too. Thank you for allowing me to spend Thanksgiving with you.” I told her.
She held me by the shoulders. “Even if Liam hadn’t asked you, I would have insisted. There is no way I am going to allow you to spend Thanksgiving alone. You are always welcome to spend holidays with us. You are practically part of our family.”
I smiled at her. “Thank you.”
“Of course. Now why don’t we get home. Everyone else is eager to meet you.” She told me.
We got into the car and Liam’s mum pulled out of the airport.
“Ruth and Nicola are so exited to see you two. When they found out that you two were together they went crazy.” Liam’s mum grinned.
“They also told me before we were in a relationship that I should tell you. My mum, dad, Ruth and Nicola knew and when the lads came, they figured it out instantly.” Liam told me.
“Really? Only Miranda and Emily knew how I felt. My mum guessed it but… she got into the car crash.” I said.
“Well, that’s another reason why you won’t be spending holidays alone. We are your family now Beth. In fact, why don’t you spend every holiday with us. I won’t let you spend it alone. I’d love to see you for Christmas also.” Liam’s mum said.
“Really?” I asked.
“Of course. Beth, you really are part of this family now. If you cant have your own family, we will be the substitute.” Liam told me.
“Well I’d love to be part of your family then.” I smiled.
When we arrived at Liam’s house we got out of the car and grabbed our bags. We walked up the front steps to Liam’s hour and he opened the door.
“They’re here!” We head a female voice shout.
We watched as Liam’s sisters came running out of the kitchen and embracing Liam and I in a hug.
“Ruthieee!” I grinned as Ruth hugged me.
She grinned and pulled out of the hug. “Its so great to see you Beth.”
Nicola gave me a hug also. “I can’t believe you two are finally together. Its about time.”
“Took me 14 years but I finally told her.” Liam grinned.
“You two need to tell me all the details later.” Ruth told us.
“Alright. We are going to put our bags upstairs and we’ll come down and say hi to everyone else.” Liam told his sisters.
“Alright.” Nicola said.
Liam and I grabbed our bags and walked up to his room. We set our stuff down. Liam wrapped his arms around my waist and kissed me.
“I love you. They will love you. I promise.” He told me.
I smiled at him. “ I love you too. Now lets go downstairs.”
He kissed me one more time and we walked out of his room. We walked downstairs and into the kitchen were the rest of Liam’s family was. There was an elderly woman and an elderly man who I assumed was Liam’s grandparents. Two boys who looked about 17 or 18 years old who looked like Liam’s cousins. And a woman who looked about Liam’s mum’s age who I assumed was his aunt.
“Liam!” Liam’s grandma smiled.
Liam greeted all of his family members.
“And who is this beautiful young lady?” Liam’s grandma asked.
“I think all of you have heard me mention her, this is Elizabeth Ashton, she is my best friend and girlfriend.” Liam grinned.
I greeted Liam’s family. They all seemed to really like me.
“So Elizabeth, where is your family?” Liam’s aunt asked.
“My mum died in a car crash about a year and a half ago and… my father is in prison.” I told them.
“Why is he in prison?” Liam’s cousin named Luke asked.
“Child abuse and attempted rape.” I mumbled.
“Oh my. I am so sorry. Thank god you are with us. How dare he even lay a finger on you.” Liam’s aunt said.
I gave her a small smile. “Thank you.”
“So, how long have you two been in a relationsip?” Liam’s grandpa asked.
“Almost a month.” Liam told him.
“They have been best friends for almost 15 years though. Since they were 5 years old.” Ruth grinned.
Everyone’s eyes widened at that. “15 years?! Wow, that is true friendship. I must say, you two look like an amazing couple.” Liam’s aunt said.
I grinned. “Thank you.”
“So Elizabeth, what do you do?” Liam’s grandma asked.
“I’m a singer. I’m actually the opening act for One Direction. After tour ends I have a record deal.” I told them.
“So you are on tour with Liam and his band?” Liam’s other cousin, Nick, asked.
“Yeah. It’s a long story on how I got there tough. Only about two months ago, I wasn’t even famous at all.” I told them.
We all talked for a while until it was around 11:00 pm when everyone decided to go to bed. Liam and I walked up to his room and we changed into this Liam and I laid down in his bed and he wrapped his arms around me. I buried my head into his chest.
“I love you Bethie.” He whispered.
“I love you too Liam.” I replied before my eyes shut and I fell into a deep sleep.
