Tess's POV

I was running. Running down a long alley, I look back with Cody chasing me. The alley seemed to go on forever and I knew Cody was catching up to me, I started to panic. The alley finally ended and I looked around frantically, breathing hard, I felt sweat coming down my forehead. Cody stalks closer to me, his blue eyes piercing into me. Tears start running down my cheeks from pure fear. "Tess?" I hear a voice ask, it's definitely not Cody's. I feel someone shaking me and my eyes shoot open. It turns out I was really crying, I sit up and Liam's sitting up too looking at me with panic is his eyes. "Sorry," I whispered to him,"I just had a bad dream." Liam gave me a reassuring smile and said,"no, it's okay. I was just really worried. You started getting really fidgety and then you started crying, so I felt like I should wake you." I ran my fingers through my tangled hair and let out a sigh. "Yeah, I've had that dream before.  I'm gonna go use the bathroom," I tell him as i get up quickly and fast walk to what I assumed was Liam's room to the bathroom.

I hated this. How embarrassing, having this nightmare when I was with Liam. I looked at myself in the mirror. My light brown eyes were red and puffy, I put my hair into a pony tail. I splashed some cold water on my face, took a deep sigh and walked out of the bathroom. The first things I saw was Liam sitting on the edge of his bed. He turned to me when heard me close the bathroom door, "i thought you'd be more comfortable sleeping in a bed." He gave me a shy smile, I smiled at myself at his adorableness. I sit next to him and he asks,"do you want to tell me what dream was about?" I look up into those caring brown eyes and end up telling him everything.

We stay up talking for hours. I tell him everything that happened between me and Cody. How we were dating for 2 years and I was totally in love with him but he was emotionally abusive and sometimes physically but only when he was drunk. I told Liam how I finally got the courage to leave him but one night he snuck into my bedroom when no one else was home, drunk as ever, and started hitting me and raped me. I took Cody to court and he was sentenced to prison and when he got out he had a permeant restraining order from me. At the end of my story I was in tears, I've never told anyone that story, except Monique knew because she was by my side the whole time. Suddenly Liam reaches for my cheek and wipes my tears away and whispers ,"I'm so sorry that happened to you. Such a sweet, beautiful girl doesn't deserve that." I smiled at him and shrugged my shoulder. "Can we talk about something else?" I asked. Liam nods.

For the next hours we learn everything about each other. From where we grew up to our favorite things. I let out a big yawn and look at my phone, it's nearly 4am. "Want to go to sleep, love?" Liam asks me, I nod as I get up and move to the front of the bed and push back the covers. "I'll just sleep on the floor," Liam says while taking at pillow and blanket to the floor. "Wait," I say to Liam, "will you sleep with me?" I ask him. Liam turns to me from the other side of the bed and nods. He slips into bed and lays on his back and puts his arms behind his head, his facial expressions looks very serious and concerned. I crawl into bed and make my way next to his side. He looks down at me and smile as I put my head on his chest and arm around his waist. Liam puts his arm down and secures it on my hip. I smile to myself and say,"Good night Liam." "Good night Tess," Liam responds. I close my eyes and drift into a nightmare-less sleep.
