17. Chapter 17

Ellie's POV

     "Ladies and gentleman welcome to California" the flight attendant announced. 

     "OMG were in California" I cheered quietly. 

     Liam sat right next to me holding my hand and Niall sat on the other side of Liam. Louis, Zayn and Harry sat behind us and Paul and Josh sat across from us. 

     "Why do you say it like that?" Liam asked. 

     "Say what like what?" I asked. 

     "You say California like Califor-knee-a not like Californ-ya"Liam said. 

     "Well isn't that how it should be. If we said Californ-ya then there should be a little accent squiggle  thinga-ma-bob-er over the n" I said. 

     Liam and Niall just stared at me like I had five heads, only blinking once then continued to stare at me with blank faces. 

     "You know what? Just forget it. I'm tired" I complained. 
     "Don't worry babe. Once we get to the hotel room you can take a nap" Liam said putting an arm around me and pulling me close while I rested my head on his shoulder. 
     "Ugh lets get off this plane. I'm starving!" Niall shouted. 

     "Niall shut your mouth. We're all hungry" Louis shouted from behind us. 

     "Not hungry, starving!" Niall shouted back. 
     "People in Africa are starving mate, you're just really hungry!" Louis shouted. 

     Just then everybody started to head off the plane. We got up, grabbed our bags, well Liam grabbed mine being the sweet gentleman he is, and headed off the plane. 

     A soon as we stepped out of the connection tunnel, fans were running towards us surrounding us. 

     "Not again" I cried. 

     "Hold on Ellie I'm gonna get you out of this" Liam said looking around. My guess what that he was trying to look for a somewhat clear path since he's taller than me and can see for a mile. He handed the bags he was carrying to Niall. He leaned closer to Niall and whispered something in his ear. It was too loud so I had no clue what he was saying to him. 

     "Liam I can't go out that way" I said backing up. 

     "I know. That's why I'm going to carry you" he said picking me up bridal style. I buried my head into his shirt and held on tight to him. Moments came flooding back into my mind of when Liam said that carrying me out of the hospital after I was shot. 

     "Ready?" Liam asked lowering his mouth to my ear. His warm breath on my skin sent shivers down my spine. 

     "Ready" I said bracing myself for what was next. 

     Zayn, Louis, Harry and Niall formed a sort of shield in front of us. Paul and Josh stood behind us for any fans trying to get us from the back. My body started to rock a bit indicating we were moving a bit. The screams just kept getting louder and louder. That only meant that my haphephobia was getting worse. I started to breath heavy and my hand took a handful of Liam's shirt and squeezed my hand tightly. I also shut my eyes tightly to somehow imagine that this wasn't happening. 

     "We're almost there, love" Liam said. I could feel tears start to form in my eyes and my breathing was becoming very shallow. 

     "Boys over here!" Someone yelled at us. 

     Liam walked a little bit more, them he started to lower me. I peeked my head out a bit from his shirt and saw that we were now in a car. 

     Then just like that, the screaming faded. 

     "Ellie, love, you can calm down now. It's over" Liam said smoothly. Oh god his voice. 

     As much as I love his voice, I couldn't bring myself to calm down. 

     "Ellie calm down" Liam said bringing me closer to his body. 

     I may have a terrible fear of people touching me and being crowded but, being this close to Liam only made me feel safe. Like nothing in the world was going to hurt me. 
     After a minute I began to breath normally again. I loosened my grip on his shirt and picked my head up. 

     "Sorry" I said laughing slightly looking at Liam's now wrinkled shirt. 

     "I don't care about the shirt. I only care about you. Are you ok?" He said. 

     "I am now" I said nuzzling back into his chest. His arms comfortably wrapped around me and I found my eyes lids getting too heavy for me to keep open.
