Lost & Found

Peyton Taylor had known Liam Payne before he'd become famous. Their mothers had been best friends since high school, so when Peyton and Liam came along, they became best friends too.

Somewhere along the way of growing up, Liam and Peyton eventually develop feelings for each other and start dating. But one day Peyton decides to move to America, leaving a confused and brokenhearted Liam behind in Wolverhampton, where they grew up together.

Deciding that he is going back on The X Factor to go after his dream, he makes it through and ends up in a boy band called One Direction who become internationally known and very popular.

One day Louis meets Peyton, the girl who left Liam behind several years earlier, but the question still remains: Why did Peyton leave in the first place and why didn't she tell Liam?

On a hunt to find out the truth about the girl that stole his heart, Liam comes across a secret that will change everything in his life forever.


6. Chapter Five

The next morning, I woke up to the smell of bacon and eggs drifting through the kitchen door and into the living room, making my mouth water.

Groggily, I pulled myself up into a sitting position and got up, walking into the kitchen to find Liam cooking, which is what woke me up.

Looking over to see who it was that stumbled in, he smiled and said:

"Hey Pey."

"Hey Li." I said in a husky voice having just woken up which made my voice sound like I smoked six packs a day.

Returning back to the bacon he was frying, I came up and stood behind him, examining his work.

"I'm not going to burn them this time, Peyton."  He said with a slight smile on his face as he referred time several years ago on one of the many occasions where I taught him how to cook. Or attempted anyway.


"Liam! You're going to burn them!" I scolded Liam as he tried to cook breakfast.

"I'm not going to burn them Pey Pey. Relax." Liam said calmly as he concentrated on what he was doing.

A couple minutes passed and I got the sudden urge to pee, so I told Liam I'd be right back and went to the bathroom.

When I had finished and washed my hands, I came back in the kitchen to find Liam slightly frowning at the pan in front of him. He had burnt the bacon. He burnt bacon! Who does that?

"I told you that you were going to burn them." I said with a slight smirk. He should've listened to me.

"Shut up." He mumbled, crossing his arms over his chest and pouting. Damn! He knew what effect that his pouty face had on me!

Sighing, I walked over to him and wrapped my arms around him, resting my face on his chest.

"It's okay Liam. I appreciate the effort." I said sincerely, standing on my tippy toes and giving him a kiss on the cheek.

"I know." He said, hugging me back and kissing my forehead.

I love this boy to death.


 "I'm sure you won't." I said as I came back to the present.

Liam looked at me then with a strange look on his face. It almost looked like regret, but what could he regret?

I didn't have time to ask him if he was okay before a sleepy and hungover Niall made his way into the kitchen.

"Hey Niall. You want some aspirin and water?" I asked and he nodded his head vigorously.

Laughing at his enthusiasm at relieving his pounding headache, I got him a glass of water and some aspirin which he immediately devoured.

"Thanks." He said, closing his eyes and leaning against the counter in the kitchen.

"No problem." I said giving him a light pat on the back.

Just then, a very groggy Danielle came into the kitchen, immediately walking over to Liam and hugging him from behind, lightly kissing his neck. And cue the jealousy.

Turning my face away from them, I caught sight of the expression on Niall's face. Damn, I was so busted.

Blushing profusely, I looked away, only encouraging Niall's suspicion.

Just then my phone started to ring, causing everyone in the room to jump a foot in the air.

"Hello?" I answered, listening intently on the other side to catch the greeting of  very familiar voice. Karen Payne, better known as Liam's mother.

"Peyton? Is that really you?" She asked in an emotional voice. It sounded like she was on the verge of tears.

"Yeah, Momma Payne. It's me." I said and I swear I heard her sniffle. I made Momma Payne cry! Darn it!

"Oh, Peyton. I've heard you were back in Wolverhampton, but I wasn't quite sure if it was true." She explained happily. I'm sure she was happy, I was like a daughter to her.

"Yeah, it's true. I'm back." I said and I could practically feel her happiness through the phone.

"You have to come see me very soon Pey, or I may just have to come kidnap you." She said in a joking matter but I could tell she was dying to see me.

"How about this. I'll come see you today after I get off work." I said and I could feel her excitement.

"Sounds good. Oh and Peyton? Bring my grandson. When he gets here that is." She said and then chuckled lightly at the thought of my son.

"Um, h-how did you know about that?" I asked her nervously.

"Oh, please! Like your mother wouldn't tell me why you left. Relax, I never told Liam. I respected your decision even though he's my son." She explained and I breathed a sigh of relief. It was still a secret to Liam.

"Alright then Momma Payne. I'll see you later today then!" I said and she chuckled.

"Bye Pey Pey. I love you baby. See you soon." She said and hung up. After ending the call, I turned around to find three curious faces staring back at me. Holy fudge.

"Was that my mum?" Liam asked curiously and I nodded reluctantly.
"Um, yeah. She had heard I was back but wasn't quite sure. She also wants me to stop by and see her later today after I get off work." I explained and he nodded in understanding.

"I didn't know you and Karen were so close." Danielle said and I looked at her and saw the barely masked jealousy. Oh my god! I can't believe I just put her through that.

"Yeah. I lived here for seventeen years and I knew Liam's family since I was born. Karen is like a mother to me." I explained, hoping to ease some of her jealousy. She relaxed a little but I could still see a little of the jealousy. I need to get to know her better. I also need to reassure her that I'm not here to steal her boyfriend.

"Well, I better get ready for work." I said and started to head out of the kitchen when Niall spoke up.

"Oh yeah. How's the studio coming along? That's where you're headed right?" Niall asked, his Irish slang as cute as ever.

"Awesome. You, Louis and Harry should come see it in all it's finished glory." I said while smiling slyly as Niall laughed.

"We will sometime." He said and after giving him a warm smile in return, I headed upstairs to get ready.

"Wait, a studio as in a dance studio?" Danielle asked and I nodded, causing her to break out into a huge smile.

"I'm a dancer too." She said excitedly.

"Really? That's awesome! If you don't have anything to do today, you're welcome to come in and help me come up with some dances to teach." I offered and she smiled and agreed to come along for an hour or two.

"Great!" I said, smiling genuinely at her and running upstairs to get dressed and in thirty minutes, Danielle and I were headed to my dance studio.
