56. Nightmares

***Beth's POV***

-1 week later-

I stood backstage at an interview waiting to be called on stage. Liam was standing by my side holding my hand.

"Please welcome Elizabeth Ashton!" The interviewer named Rachel said.

Liam squeezed my hand and I walked into the lights of the stage. I hugged Rachel and took my seat.

"Elizabeth! How are you?" Rachel asked.

"Im amazing thank you. How are you?" I smiled.

"I'm fine. So, your album, Red, came out a few weeks ago. It has reached number one. How do you feel about that?" She asked.

"Honestly its like a dream. A year ago today I never would have thought I would have an album out let alone one on the top of the charts." I grinned.

"Thats right, a year ago you were just a normal teenage girl and now look at you, you're famous and dating Liam Payne from One Direction. How is your relationship going?" She asked.

"Its amazing. I have known Liam since we were 5 so this relationship not only makes us stronger, it makes our friendship stronger." I told her.

"So I know this is a few months ago but you there are pictures of you, Liam and the rest of the boys along with their girlfriends on New Years eve at a party in New York. There are also pictures of Liam's ex girlfriend, DaniellePeazer there. How did you feel about that?" Rachel asked.

"Well I got a chance to meet Danielle and she is a very sweet girl. I mean she has to be, Liam wouldn't have dated her if she wasn't." I said, putting a fake smile on.

"So back to your album, what would you say is your favorite song on the album?" She asked.

"A Thousand Years." I told her.

"What is it about?" Rachel asked me.

"Its about loving someone or a really long time before you are in a relationship and once you are in a relationship you will still love them for a thousand years more." I smiled.

"I don't think we need to second guess who thats about." She smiled. "When does your tour start? Do you know?"

"Yeah it starts in about two months, April 23 actually. Its going to be six months long." I told her.

"Must be hard being away from Liam and the rest of the boys in One Direction for that long." She said.

"It really is. We could barely stand three weeks, imagine six months." I sighed.

"So a few months ago your father was convicted of child abuse and attempted rape, is that correct?" She asked.

I stiffened a little. "It is."

"How long had the abuse been going on?" She asked.

"For about a year and a half." I told her.

"Wow. You are a strong girl." She said. "Do you think you will ever forgive your father?"

I shook my head. "He can come to me and tell me he's sorry but I will just turn my cheek.  He cant come back into my life and pretend he didn't hurt me. He's in prison for life anyway."

"Actually, it was reported that someone posted bail on him. Your father was set free last week." She told me.

I was silent. I didn't know what to day. It was almost like the world had frozen in time.

"I'm sorry, I thought you knew." She said. She turned to the camera. "And thats all the time we have. We'll be right back after this commercial break."

As soon as it was over Liam rushed onto the stage and held me close. I was still sitting there in shock. Liam took my hand and led me off the stage. As soon as we were off the set he pulled me into a hug.

"I won't let him hurt you. I won't let him near you. If I ever see him, I will kill him." He told me.

I buried my head into his shoulder and felt tars slip down my cheek. Liam led me back to the car and we both got in. He drove home in silence. I hadn't said anything since she said that. As soon as we arrived at our house we saw four other cars there. Liam and I walked inside and saw everyone already there. As soon as they saw me they all pulled me into a hug.

"We won't let him anywhere near you Beth." Louis told me.

I didn't say anything. I just slowly walked upstairs and went into mine and Liam's room. I laid down on the bed and felt tears slip down my cheek. I heard someone walk into the room.

"Beth. Beth please talk to us." Miranda said.

"Hes back." I choked out.

Miranda got me to sit up and hugged me. I heard the door downstairs crash open. Miranda and I quickly walked out of the room and looked downstairs. Hes here. He has a gun. I heard the first shot.

"Beth stay upstairs!" Liam yelled. "Miranda make sure she stays upstairs!"

Miranda hurried me upstairs. She led me to the closet and we sat on the ground and she shut the door. He heard more shots and I cried into Miranda's shoulder as she cried into mine. The shots went off for at least 10 minutes. Then everything was silent. Miranda and I sat there for another 10 minutes before creeping out of the closet. We slowly crept downstairs and as soon as I saw the sight I screamed. The room was covered in blood and bodies. Liam was lying on the ground, laying in his own pool of blood.

"LIAM!" I screamed.

I rushed to his side and held him in my arms as I cried. They were all gone. Everyone I loved except Miranda... was gone. Dead.

"Hello sweetheart." A raspy voice said from behind me.

I turned around and my eyes met his. He pointed the gun at me and the shot rung through my ears.




My eyes opened revealing Liam's worried face. There were tears streaming down my face.

"He came back Liam. He came back and killed all of you." I cried into his shoulder.

He held me tightly. "Shhh who came back?"

"M-my father." I cried.

He kissed my forehead. "It was just a dream babe. Were all still here. None of us died. Hes still in prison."

I buried my head into his shoulder. "It was so real."

He looked me in the eyes. "There is no way I would ever ever ever leave you Beth."

"But we were at an interview and the interviewer told me that someone posted bail and we came home and everyone was already here. I came up here and Miranda came up and while we were up here he came and killed all of you." I cried.

He held my hands in his. "Beth, if I ever see him, I would kill him before he killed me."

"I love you Liam." I whispered.

"I love you too Beth." He replied.

"What time is it." I asked quietly.

"3:00 am." He whispered softly. 

I laid my head on his chest and he wrapped his arms around me. We soon fell back asleep.
