~A girl once told me to be careful when trying to fix a broken person For you may cut yourself on their shattered pieces~


20. The Letter

Liam's POV


Again, I let her walk away. I was too ashamed to go after her and I knew that I had to give her some space. I felt a piece of my heart walk away with her and every step she took away from me, another piece would fall.


At this point I didn't know what to do. If I had heard correctly then I would know that she said that she was planning on giving us a shot. And I screwed up. I let her down, something I promised that I would never do. I could understand if she would never want to see me again. I can't say the same thing for myself though. I want to see her.


I took my time walking back to my flat dreading to the plastic face that awaits me on the other side. I was in no mood to deal with anyone anymore. By the time I reached the door, I was completely soaked head to toe. I reluctantly opened the door and found Alyssa on her phone sitting at my dining room table. Anger immediately filled me.


"Leave." I said with as much power as I desired to put behind it. She eventually caught on and gathered her things and left me alone. I was surprised that she didn't put up a fight. She did give me a look of sympathy as she passed by me. I didn't acknowledge it.


I dried myself off and changed into a more comfortable attire. I went straight to my bed and closed my eyes where I was pulled into a slumber caused by depression and regret. I've had one too many of these to know that it's going to take a lot for me to even get up.







It's been three weeks since I've last heard or even seen Diana. My many attempts to call her, visit her, or even accidentally run into her have all failed. And they weren't weak attempts. I soon stopped knowing that she had gave it her all to avoid me.


But I wasn't going to give up.


I had called Harry many times asking for advice and his reply was always the same: "Give her time."


Well I have and now I'm worried. I took the risk and decided to visit her house once more, like I haven't already done so. But as I was walking towards her house I couldn't shake the feeling like something bad had happened. This only encouraged me to walk at a faster pace.


I finally reached her house and ran up the porch steps, knocking frantically on the door. As usual there was no answer. I heard the slamming of a car door behind me and I turned around to find a well dressed man in a tailored suit walk up to the house.


"Hello there."


"Um hi." I said as I walked away from the door.


"Are you the owner of this house? Or at least did you live here?"


"No. I'm a friend of the person who does. May I ask, who are you?"


"I'm detective Lawrence. I've been the one working on the case of Diana Grimshaw."


My heart plummeted to my feet the moment he said those words.


"Detective? Why does she need a detective?"


"Are you Liam?"


"Yes. Why?"


"She addressed this to you." He handed me an envelope with my name scribbled across it. I took it from his grasp, deeply confused.


"I don't understand.."


"Do you know anything about what happened to Diana?"


I was scared to answer that question. "Truthfully no sir." I was now on the bottom of the stairs of her porch and we were both on the sidewalk.


"Son, she overdosed on medication. Her neighbor found her last week. I'm deeply sorry."


My mind went fuzzy and my being went numb. It was a lie. A joke. A scandal. Anything for it not to be true. But I had to make sure.


"W-what?" My voice faltered over.


"It was her attempt at suicide and unfortunately she succeeded. It was too late when she made it to the hospital. I came back here to see if she had any remnants or traces of family members or any clues of some sort. I tried looking up her family history but either nothing came up or they're dead. We contacted anybody we thought possible to cover the funeral and burial expenses."


I still couldn't focus on anything around me. Why didn't she tell me she had no family? I could only do one thing at this point.


"I'll do it." My voice was a whisper as my inner feeling flooded out and down my cheeks.


"I know it's a lot to take in but I'm sure she was a lucky girl to have a friend like you. Can I get your full name so we know who's the one to take care of everything?"


"Liam. Liam Payne."


"Thank you son. Just hang in there."


He left and took off in his car where I was left behind once again to have my thoughts consume me.


I didn't want to go home but I did. Where else could I go? Where else would I even want to go in this world anyways? It took a lot longer to get home but I managed. I sat down on my couch and stared at the wall in front of me, still numb. Numb on trying to figure out how to even react anymore. Maybe even live life.


I stared at the wall with a tight grip on the piece of paper that held everything to me dearest. Two hours later and I was still contemplating on opening the note. Eventually I did.



With haste I opened it up frantically ripping at the thin, paper closure. I took a deep breath as fresh tears began rolling down my cheeks and read on.



Dear Liam,


By the time you receive this letter, I will be gone. Yes Liam. I love you. I did this because I love you. Don't think for one second that this was your fault, because it wasn't. I was never one to handle the world and whatever it threw at me. Whatever happened between us just triggered this even further. What we went through together had to be the single most beautiful thing that I have ever experienced. Nothing was official but something was still there. When I was broken, you picked up those pieces. You picked them up but didn't exactly put them together. And that's okay. You can't fix what's already broken. You showed me how it felt to be loved and I can't thank you enough. I only wish to had left with an imprint on this world but I am hoping I left with an imprint on your heart. Because you put one on mine.


I love you to the moon and back.


Goodbye Forever.


xx Diana.
