Liv's POV

I'd told Susie everything.

From the beginning when Liam and I were just friends to when we became best friends, Danielle being all bitchy the other day, and Liam saying those words and blanking me all through talking to One Direction's management.

Susie had comforted me, wrapped her arms around me and pulled me close.

And then I told her about Harry.

How everything he did or said back then affected everything now. How I couldn't walk into a Pret coffee shop without feeling upset or angry. How, whenever I saw him with other people, I felt sort of betrayed by them. How he was trying to get my trust and friendship back by catching my eye all the time, talking to me, often flirting with me. And the fact that, however hard I tried not to be, I was still in a teeny weeny bit of love with him.

And I hated myself for that.


I looked down at my flashing phone and sighed. 18 texts, 17 missed calls, 5 new voicemail messages, and who were they all from? Liam.

Deciding to listen to the voicemail just to hear what he had to say for himself, I dialled 121 and listened to the recorded voice for a few seconds before Liam's voice flooded the room.

First message. "Liv, please, just talk to me!"


Second message. "Liv, honey, can you pick up the phone and tell me what I've done wrong?"

Don't call me honey.

Third message. "Olivia Charlotte Dunning, you better ring me back right now or I'm gonna get really, really mad."

You know you won't.

Fourth message. "Liv?"

Oh God. He was actually crying.

Fifth message. "Liv, I'm really worried and upset, I don't know what I did, but I hate not being friends with you. You're my best friend, I'm so close to you, and I can't imagine my life without you. Please, I'm begging you, please, please call me. I can't lose you."

You've got Danielle. Now shut the hell up.

A knock came on my door. Couldn't my friends just leave me alone for once in my life?

"Liv, we're worried about you. Please come out."

Nope. No way.

"Okay, I've got your mother on speed dial here, maybe we should get her to come over and sort you out, seeing as we can't do this alone?"

"Alright, alright!" I hurried over to the door and unlocked it to reveal Zara, Annabel and Susie.

Oh. And Liam.

"Get him out of my apartment." I muttered and Susie rolled her eyes.

"Technically, it's our apartment." She sighed, pulling Liam up off the sofa and pushing him over to me.


Zara wiped a tear from my eye. "Did you know you're a drama queen?" She cracked a smile as I scowled at her.

I huffed. "Yes, that fact has already been discovered, but thanks for reminding me."

Liam pulled me into my room and locked the door after telling my friends: "I'll make her smile, don't worry."

Kiss ass.

Turning to me, Liam frowned. "Liv, what's going on. You've been crying."

"Thanks for the update."

"Please cut out the sarcasm, I hate it when you're like this. Look, we're staying in here till you tell me what I've done wrong, so if you wanna get outta here, you're gonna have to talk babe."

Fury took over my body and I lunged at him, gripping his shirt with my hands and pushing him away. Hard.

"Don't you dare say that ever, ever again!" I spat at him.

Liam's face crumpled and I softened slightly.


He looked up. "No, I'm the one that's sorry."

"So you should be."

He chuckled but then grew serious again. "Please tell me, Liv."

"Why would you care?"

"B-because I care about you!"

Tears filled my eyes and I shook my head angrily. "So you're gonna fob me off with the same crap you fed Danielle?"

Liam looked so confused, and for a second I thought that maybe I should stop before things got really bad.

But then I remembered how he hurt me. Hurt me with those words he used the other day.

I don't care about Liv, I care about you.

"Just tell me what I did wrong." Liam growled and I clenched and unclenched my fists several times. "I heard you with Danielle."


"I heard what you said Liam. You're meant to be my best friend, one of my closest friends. I thought it was the same for you too. But it's hard to be someone's friend when you don't really care about them, isn't it?"

Liam's eyes widened. "It wasn't meant like that, just listen and I can explain-"

"I know what 'I don't care about Liv' means. It's okay. You don't care about me. You hurt me real bad, Liam, I thought we were friends, but obviously not. You're just like Harry."

I turned away and blocked him out, trying to get a grip of myself before I lost it completely and had a breakdown on the floor. It's like no guy I meet will ever care for me. Harry leaving me after an unplanned pregnancy, Liam admitting he doesn't care when his girlfriend starts to cry. How many more people will I have not caring about me until I finally can't take it anymore?

"LIV!" Liam screaming my name made me look at him properly, and I could see he was crying like me now. "Hear me out before you go off on a rampage, cursing my name everywhere! You haven't heard my side of the story!"

Huh? Why would I need to hear his side of the story? It's quite clear what he feels about me. It's quite obvious that he really couldn't care less about me. 

"Liv, I'm sorry for calling you babe. I call all girls babe, so I didn't mean it in a sort of flirty way, but maybe you're not used to it. Sorry about that. It was bad of me."


"And the other day? Well, you probably heard most of me and Danielle's conversation, but she was extremely upset. I don't understand why she was getting so overprotective and jealous, she was being a bitch to you and irrational. I apologise for her behaviour. Then she was shouting and screaming at me, saying that I shouldn't see you, that you and I shouldn't be as close as we are. I had to reassure her, tell her that we were nothing more than friends."

He sighed and scratched his head. "I do care about you Liv. More than I probably should. You've become such a good friend, it's like I can tell you stuff that I can't even tell Danielle about. I mean, I told you about the tour before my girlfriend, doesn't that prove something!"


Actually, it proves that you really don't care.

"So you told me about the tour, knowing that if things didn't work out I'd be upset anyways?" Hurt was rippling through me now.

"Where the hell are you getting these things from?" Liam brushed off the tear stains on his cheeks and I turned away again. I couldn't see him like this. Liam had never cried before, I'd never seen him display any emotion other than happiness. And here he was, almost on the floor in floods of tears.

"They were words that came out of your mouth, Liam. I'm not making them up."

Liam was silent and I glanced behind me. He was sat on the bed. His head was in his hands and his body was shaking.

"Liam?" I asked uncertainly, all my anger suddenly gone.

Liam didn't turn, just shook and shook until I could bear it no more. I walked over slowly and sat down next to him, placing my arms around his shoulders. "Please don't shake." I whispered.


"I'm sorry too."

Liam looked up at me and I brushed a tear escaping his eyelid, just like Zara did to me earlier.

"You've been crying." I stated.

"Thanks for the update." Liam copied my words and cracked a smile.

I hugged him tightly. 

"Liv, I am really, really sorry though, I do care about you, lots, and I guess I was just trying to get Danielle off my back. I've hated these past few days, when I haven't been able to see you or talk to you. I- I missed you."

I buried my head in Liam's shoulder and let out a long sigh. "I missed you too. And I'm sorry for shouting at you, I got a little worked up."

Liam shrugged. "You had a right to. Wanna cookie?"

I rolled my eyes. "You do know that I'm not like Niall, you can't just give me food and expect everything to be okay again."

"So, do you want a cookie or not?"

I nodded and grinned, pulling him up off the bed and out into the kitchen.

Susie, Annabel and Zara were waiting patiently. They all looked extremely bored, but when they saw Liam and I, they all perked up and rushed over.

Zara jumped up in my face. "Liv! Liam! You made up!"

I smiled. "Well done, Zara. I don't think anyone would have guessed if you hadn't shouted it out right then."

Annabel and Susie beamed at Liam. "You made her smile!" They cried and I laughed. It was nice to laugh and smile after three days of torturing myself. At one point I thought I'd have to cancel my flight to Japan.

But now I don't have to.

What a relief.

Liam put on his cute face and smiled at Susie. "So, Susie? You're looking very pretty today..."

She chuckled then slapped him upside the head. "What do you want, Payne. You're such a pain. Hah, see what I did there?"

I giggled and Liam scowled. "Please don't say that again, I hear enough of it from people who call themselves fans."

Susie apologised and Liam brightened up, claiming that he was dying for a double chocolate cookie.

I rolled my eyes and Liam grinned over at me. He was obsessed with those double chocolate cookies.

"Fatty." I muttered and Liam's head snapped over to look at me.

"What did you just say?!" He screamed and I sprinted out the room, jumping sofas and chairs as I went, all the while giggling at the murderous expression on Liam's face.

"You can't catch me!" I sang through the hallways and I heard a growling from behind.

"Oh, we'll see about that." Liam called and I was suddenly thrown to the floor by him, slightly winded but grinning like a maniac, and silently praying that he didn't tickle me.

"Right, I think it's time for a bit of a tickle."

My worst fear was said out loud, and I howled.

It was nice being friends with Liam again.


I hate it when Liv and Liam aren't friends, it's was horrible having to write that argument!! But I think Liv is quite funny when she's cross, she gets all sarcastic :D Have you ever noticed that Susie gets all the romantic type scenes and Liv gets all the drama? I just realised today...

Also, I might change the cover again...found a really great picture that I'd loveee to use!! So keep your eyes peeled.
