10. Tell Her

***Beth's POV***

I opened my eyes and was immediately blinded by bright lights. As soon as my eyes adjusted to the light I looked around and found that I was in a hospital room. Liam, Louis and Harry were sitting in the chairs playing on their phones. Liam looked up and his eyes widened and he rushed to my side.

"Bethie."He whispered.

His face was all cut up and he had bruises everywhere.

"Beth!"Louis and Harry said at the same time.

"Hey guys."I choked out, giving them a small smile.

"Oh my god. Thank god you're ok."Liam said.

"How long have I been here?"I asked.

"Two days."Liam choked out.

"Two days?!"I asked.

They nodded. 

"Your father beat you up pretty badly and you ended up slipping into a coma. He's in jail right now. He has a court date in about 3 weeks."Liam told me.

"Are you ok?"I asked him.

"Yes i'm fine. I broke my promise though. I promised you that I wouldn't let him hurt you."He said.

"Liam, its not your fault. Its my fathers."I told him.

"I just can't believe anyone can treat their own daughter like that. And this has been going on for a year?"Liam asked.

I nodded.

"I wasn't there for you. I left you and I never contacted you. You needed a best friends and I wasn't there."Liam said, tears forming in the corners of his eyes. "I will never leave your side again."

"We're going to get some Starbucks do you want us to bring you two anything?"Louis asked.

"Two hot chocolates with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle."Liam said.

Louis nodded and him and Harry walked out. I moved over in the hospital bed and patted the spot next to me. Liam slipped onto the bed and wrapped his arms around me.

"I'm sorry."He whispered.

"For what?"I asked.

"For leaving you, for not contacting you, for not paying attention, for not being there when you needed me most, for breaking our pinky promise from when we were 5."He told me.

I held out my pinky. "Do you pinky promise to always be there for me and never leave my side and be my best friends forever?"

He linked his pinkie with mine. "I pinkie promise."

I grinned. "We act like such children."

"We really do don't we?"He grinned.

Liam and I soon fell asleep, his arms still wrapped around my waist and my head rested on his chest.

***Louis's POV***

Harry and I had gotten the rest of the lads after we went to Starbucks and we walked to Beth's room. 

"We're ba-"I stopped mid sentence when I saw Liam and Beth.

"Aww."I smiled.

"I still think its going to be two weeks."Harry said.

"I don't know, they obviously love each other, they just think the other one doesn't feel the same way."Zayn said.

"You know how Liam wrote First Last Kiss?"I asked.

"Yeah."

"Its clearly about Beth."I said.

I watched them think about the lyrics for a while.

"Whoa, it is."Niall said.

"I think he wrote I Would about her also."Zayn said.

"I think all the songs Liam wrote are about Beth."I told them.

-2 hours later-

***Liam's POV***

I woke up and saw that I had my arms wrapped around Beth and her head was rested on my shoulder. I saw the boys sitting the the chairs.

"Well look who's awake."Louis said.

"Sleep well?"Zayn smirked.

I looked at Beth. "Yes, yes I did sleep well."

"Mate, just tell her how you feel. She feels the same way."Harry said.

I shook my head. "She doesn't feel the same way. She only thinks of us as best friends."

"You sure about that?"Niall asked.

"Yeah, anyway if I tell her it would jeopardize our friendship."I said.

"Do you love her or not?"Louis asked.

"I do."I told them.

"Then tell her."Louis said.

I sighed. Maybe someday I would get the courage to tell her.
