The Beginning Of Something Beautiful

Violet is a total hopeless romantic, she's the girl that everyone goes to for relationship advice, the one who writes love songs, and falls for guys a lot. But she can't seem to find someone to love her back. Her not so great home life and full on optimisim make it hard for guys to like her. Life is hard for Violet, but Liam can make it easier.


3. I Can Try This

(Violet's POV) He finished with his recording for the radio contest. The entire time my heart was pounding, I wanted to talk to him so bad. I wanted for him to fall for me, to care. I needed at least one person to care about me. No! This is crazy, I just met him today. Why would he like me? He doesn't even know me. I don't even know him. It would never work out. I fought back tears as the voices in my head came back to haunt me. It's like a part of me postively hates me. I can't blame it on my mom, or anyone, but it's like my thoughts are possessed with hateful words and insults. is it really that hard for me to love myself, that's all I want. I walked over to Liam, my hands shaky, "Hello" I looked up to see his smiling face. It was hard for me to control my voice even though all I said was a simple hello. "how are you, love?" He replied with a warm smile. "i'm just fine, how are you?" I was struggling to keep a conversation going, even at the start. But for some reason I couldn't let him go. 


We talked for hours. Amazenly he didn't seem to want to end the conversation any more than I did. I knew I was falling for him. But I really couldn't let this happen again. I just couldn't. Liam asked me to go to Starbucks with him, as the studio was closing and he wanted to talk more, he said. I agreed, it was getting late, but I knew I wouldn't sleep tonight. I never can if something relevant happens. I lay awake for hours on end and simply think, sometimes I write, or listen to music, but thinking always seems to be my first and last resort. I must have been quiet on the way to Starbucks, since Liam turned around with a concerned look on his face and asked if I was alright. "I'm ok' I said while pulling my sleeves further down my wrists. He wouldn't see my scars. I couldn't let him. I needed him too much to risk it all. 


(Liams's POV) Violet was amazing to talk to all day. I was really falling for this girl. I was worried about her though. She was much too quiet on the way to Starbucks (I'd asked to go get coffee's since the recording studio closed.) She kept pulling on her sleeves and I wondered why. Actually, I had an idea why, but I really didn't want that to be the case. I didn't want that thought in my head at all. When we got to Starbucks Violet and I talked for a few hours and her house was a half hour away so I was going to invite her to stay at mine. For some reason, I just didn't want her to ever leave me. But there was one thing I had to do first. Well, actually, two things. I grabbed her hand and said the words "Violet, I know we just met. But will you please be my girlfriend? I can't stand the idea of you not being mine" Tears gathered in her eyes as she whispered the words "Liam, I have waiting for that question my entire life. Waiting for someone who wouldn't hurt me. Of course I will be your girlfriend Liam. I wouldn't want anything else" She smiled and I was insanely happy. 


I'm not sure I've ever felt this way. I really liked this girl, it may sound crazy but ... I think.. I love her. I just hoped she felt the same way. She slept on my couch that night, and as she woke up, I knew what I needed to do. "Violet" I whispered and took her wrists "yes?" She said softly, almost like she was scared. She knew what I was going to do. I lifted her sleeve to see rows and rows of scars. I didn't want to believe it. Violet was to perfect to have ever had any need to hurt. I wouldn't ever let her hurt anymore. She looked up with tears in her eyes. "I'll leave now, I'm sorry, thank you" She mumbled and started to get up. I stood up too and kissed her. "I will never leave you darling" I said. She was really crying now and looked in shock at me after what I said. "Y-y-y-you won't make me leave? You won't say goodbye and tell me to not come back? You'll stay with me?" Her shocked tone broke my heart. What had this perfect girl been through? I kissed her nose and said "I will never leave you for anything. You are perfect and you mean so much to me. Violet, I love you"
