23. Liam's Story Part 5

Shouting is all I could hear, my head was throbbing from the alcohol I consumed only a few hours before. I looked out my window and to my surprise I could see Willow's living room lights were on. The shadow of her father was shaking as he lifted his arm up and it connected with another shadow. Something didin't seem right but at the time I thought they were messing around or something.

 

I watched as the middle aged man stumbled out of his house and storm down the street where he met up with a few other men. After that I climbed down stairs to get pain killers when I heard my parents talking in hushed voices;

 

Shouting again! I'm positive something is happening in that house dear.

Enough Sharron, it's none of our buisiness if something is going on over there. We moved so Liam can get better not so he can be dragged into more chaos. I saw that girl earlier and she was smoking for god sake!

Honey please! What if that man is hurting the poor thing, of course she has turned out to be messed up, especially since there is no woman in the house. Imagine no mother! The poor girl must be alone. Nothing beats a mothers love.

Sharron that's enough my love, we can't keep on worrying about other people when we have to worry about our own mess of a son!

That one hurt...

My baby is not a mess!

 

I started to get angry so I stormed into the kitchen to find my parents staring at me with shocked faces. My mother had tears in her eyes whilst my father just seemed to be worried. I walked past them and grabbed the pain killers.

 

"Why do you smell of alcohol?", my father asked slowly. I continued walking to the door filled with a temper because of them, plus my headache was driving me crazy.

 

"Because I'm messed up remember!", I shouted and stormed out of the house. I wasn't in the mood to listen to them lecture me about how much I had changed again. I knew quite well how things went in the family.

 

When I had came out with the truth about being gay it started off with my parents arguing a bit here and there and then my father would say I was a disgrace and I didn't deserve to be his son, my mother would cry herself to sleep and pray that my 'illness' would leave. But in the end she came around when she met Devin and fell in love with him. My father tried to accept who I was but since then the relationship between us had never been the same.

 

It was like that all over again, the fighting, the insults, maybe my father would start the hitting again. He believed that hitting me would toughing his son up and get rid of the girl as he tried to put it. It was started to get on my nerves so I took up drinking. I would numb the hits until I would eventually laugh at him. My mother? Well she was too kind and in love with him to see who he really was.

 

On the outside we looked like you wonderful perfect family, a loving wife and mother, a loyal working father who would provide for his family and a happy son raised in a home of love. Well it once was like that but you see I had a secret that no one outside the walls of my home knew. My father killed my baby brother in front of me, of course he didn't know I saw him do it. Mickie had came across my father sleeping with another woman, he got mad and slapped the whore. My father killed him... told my mother that he tried to stop the woman from killing Mickie but I knew the truth. Of course I never told anyone, how could I break my mothers heart like that?

Since that day my father never slept with another woman, he got busy with work. He loved my mother, he tried to love me but the best I could do was pretend to love the demon he was. Devin knew my father had a unique way of toughing his children up. 

 

I found myself wandering to the park where the guys and myself would hang around most days. I looked around in shock it was really different at night, people sat laughing with each other. It was unlike school, everyone was friends but maybe that was because they were all seen as the outcasts of the school.

I saw Blake and Seth sitting on the swings talking to some other people and decided to go over to them. To my disgust some girls where throwing themselves at the two, Blake didn't seem to mind so much whilst Seth seemed to be wrinkling his nose. I couldn't help but burst into a fit of laughter. A few heads turned my way including Seth's.

"Hey Liam! Whatcha doing here?", Seth asked walking over to me and hugged me tight. I didn't exactly know what was happening between us at the time, I was still thinking of Devin most nights.

"I just... I just needed to get out of the house ya know", I said and waved at Blake. 

"Is something wrong? And why do you smell like you downed a bottle of vodka".

"Bad habbit I guess and I don't want to talk about it, my life is messed up as it is", I gave Seth my best smile and walked over to where he had been sitting. Seth looked at me worried and grabbed my hand mumbling something to Blake before dragging me off.

                                                             

                                                                  ***

 

We had walked for around twenty minutes, Seth still hadn't let my hand go. When we did come to a stop it was at a small clearing near the end of the field that sat next to the park. I looked everywhere until my eyes landed on Seth.

I felt confused at first but when the moons light had hit his face he almost seemed... unreal. His eyes gleamed with a emotion I had not seen since Devin, my heart took control over my head and before I knew what I was doing my lips smashed against his.

 

At first there was no response so I pulled away ashamed, I looked everywhere so I didn't have to look into his eyes. I looked at my feet but they couldn't avoid the feeling of Seth's stare that bore into my soul.

"Liam I-"

Then he kissed me, my heart banged against my chest and my soul started to catch fire. I felt happiness fill me and the hole in my heart start to fill. I kissed him back with happiness and let the agony leave me for a while.

Pulling away from him I gazed into his eyes and got lost. I felt something I hadn't since Mickie, something that I didn't even feel completely when I was with Devin...

Safe.
