62. Project Payne

***Liam's POV***

I sat there, disappointed in myself. I watched Louis get up and walked out of the room after Beth. That should be me. Harry, Niall and Zayn glared at me.

"What happened to you two? You two used to be inseparable and now she walks into the room for 5 minutes and you've already driven her away." Zayn asked.

I laid my head back and groaned. "I don't know."

"You do know you just don't want to tell us." Harry said.

"Can you just drop it please?" I asked, turning back to my notes.

Louis walked back into the room.

"Liam, that should have been you to go comfort her. I'm not her boyfriend or best friend, you are. You have no right to yell at her when she is just trying to help you. She loves you a lot and cares a lot about you." Louis said sternly.

I sighed and took out my phone.

To: Beth
I'm sorry. I love you.

She texted back instantly.

From: Beth
Thought you wanted me to leave you the fuck alone Liam. That's exactly what I'm doing.

To: Beth
Babe please. I'm sorry. Since when do you listen to an idiot like me? I don't deserve you.

From: Beth
First of all Liam... you're not an idiot! Second, what makes you think I don't deserve you. This is just one of our little stupid fights we have right?

I sighed.

To: Beth
Yeah... look I love you. Just remember that. I love you Elizabeth Ashton, always have always will.

From: Beth
I'm not convinced. We'll talk later

I dropped my phone on the table and held my head in my hands. I slammed my fist against the table in frustration.

"Liam what the hell is wrong with you?!" Louis asked.

"Nothing god damn it! Nothing is fucking wrong with me!" I yelled.

I got up and left the room. I rode down to the first floor and walked out of the building. I got into my car and sat there for a moment. I rested my arms on the steering wheel and rested my head on my arms. I don't deserve anything I have.

***Beth's POV***

"So he just went out and told you to leave him alone?" Miranda asked.

I nodded slowly. We were sitting in the living room of Harry and Miranda's flat with Emily and Perrie.

"What is wrong with him?! You two used to never fight and now Liam has this attitude!" Perrie said.

I just looked out the window. It felt like I was loosing him. Slowly...

"Beth, you okay?" Emily asked.

"What... um.. yeah. I'm fine." I sighed.

"Okay. How about we watch a movie then?" Miranda asked.

I nodded.

"The Proposal?" Perrie asked.

"Yesss!!" Emily grinned. As they watched the movie I was lost in my thoughts. What was wrong with Liam? Why is he acting this way? Who is D? I hadn't told anyone about D and I don't think I will. The movie was about half over when the front door opened. Harry walked into the room.

"The Proposal? Really Mir? How many times have you watched this movie? Six I think it was." Harry smirked.

"I love this movie! Shut up!" Miranda laughed.

Harry turned to me. "Hey um, Beth, I just thought my may want to know, Liam... he kinda stormed out of the room about 5 minutes after you left and none of us know where he is. I stopped by your house on the way here but he wasn't there."

My heart sunk for a moment. "He wants me to leave him alone."

"Beth, he loves you. He needs you. We'll help you go look for him." Miranda said.

"The lads are outside. They figured you might want to look for him." Harry said.

I sighed and stood up. "Lets go."

We all walked outside.

"Okay, Mir you come with me, Em go with Niall, Perrie with Zayn and Beth go with Louis." Harry said.

I walked down to Louis who was waiting in his car. I opened the passenger door and Louis gave me a small smile.

"Hey there. You okay?" He asked.

I shook my head. He gave me a small hug.

"We'll find Liam and I'll knock some sense into him." Louis said.

I gave him a small smile. "You're acting like more of a best friend than Liam is right now."

He shook his head. "I could never replace Liam. You just need a best friend right now. I'm here for you, always." He said.

"Thanks Louis." I said.

He nodded. Louis's phone stared to ring and he put it on speaker once he saw that it was Harry.

"Okay, Louis I need you to stop by Liam and Beth;s house first to see if hes there. If hes not got check all of our houses. Just looked around on the streets." Harry said.

"Alright. Where will the rest of you be looking?" Louis asked.

"In the city sort of. We'll just look around all the shops and bars first though." Harry said.

"Okay. Can we call this project Payne?" Louis grinned.

I heard Harry sigh. "Yes Louis. We can call this Project Payne."

"Yess! Okay! Project Payne is now in cation! GO!" Louis shouted into the phone causing me to smile. "I made her smile!!!"

"Good Beth! Keep smiling!" Miranda yelled into the phone.

Louis hung up after that. "First stop, your house."

Louis pulled out of Harry's house and started towards mine and Liam's house. As soon as we pulled into the driveway Louis and I got out and I took out my keys. I unlocked the door and slowly stepped inside.

"Liam?!" I called. "Liam are you here?!"

Louis and I walked from room to room but still not sign of Liam.

"Well hes not here. Lets try my house, then Zayn then Niall's. After that we can just drive around looking for him."Louis said.

I nodded.

"Oh come on, please smile." He pleaded.

I didn't smile.

"If I smile will you smile?" He asked.

I shook my head.

"You leave me no choice Beth. The Fresh Prince of Bel Air rap it is then." He grinned.

He selected the rap on his phone and he began to rap along to it in a funny voice as he drove. I tried hard not to laugh but I ended up letting out a little giggle.

"Yesss!! See?! It always works!" Louis grinned.

"Fine you got me to laugh. That's the only time though." I told him.

We drove to all the other boy's houses but Liam wasn't there either. Louis and I began driving around looking.

***Harry's POV***

We were all walking around downtown looking for Liam. Miranda and I ended up running into Niall and Emily.

"No sign of him yet?" Niall asked.

"No. Nothing from Zayn or Louis either." I sighed. "Louis and Beth have gone to all of our houses even Beth and Liam's again and hes not there.

"Hey!" Zayn said from behind us, coming over with Perrie. "Found him yet?"

I shook my head. "No luck."

"Well there are a few more places we haven't checked. Why don't we just stick together this time?" I asked.

They all agreed. The first place we walked into was a flower shop. I walked up to the lady at the counter.

"Excuse me, have you seen a tall boy with short brown hair and brown eyes? Hes wearing a blue plaid shirt and khakis." I asked.

She thought for a moment. "I don't really know. I think I saw a bot wearing plaid and khakis with brown hair walk into the bar across the street about an hour ago."

"Okay thank you." I said.

"Lets try the bar across the street." I said.

We all crossed the street and walked up to the bar. I opened the door and we all walked in. I looked at everyone in the room. My eyes darted from person to person.

"No..." Miranda whispered beside me.

I looked at her and her eyes were wide. She was pointing at something. We followed her gaze and as soon as I saw it to my eyes widened as well. We had found Liam....
















...but he was snogging a girl...















...that wasn't Beth.
