Safe And Sound (Triquel to Red)

"Elizabeth Ashton was more that just a girl to me. She was my best friend, she was the love of my life, she was my light. Since the day I met her when we were 5 years old there hasn't been a single day that I didn't love her. Without her, I wouldn't be the man I am today. She taught me so many things. She taught me to never give up on myself and to never let anyone tell me who I am, who I want to be. She taught me to believe in myself even when no one else did. Through the 15 years that I knew her, just the thought of her made me smile. Now I can't help but look back on all of the memories we made. The pillow fights, the sleep overs, the ghost stories. She made me happier than anyone else ever could. She put a smile on my face even when I was on the verge of tears and she always knew what to say. So much of the world knows Elizabeth Ashton as the girl who broke free from her past and created a future...


19. Completely and Hopelessly

-1 Months later (Late November)-

***Beth's POV***

"Liam hurry up! We don't want to get there too late!" I called from the entry way, my voice traveling upstairs.

It was silent for a moment before I heard his voice. "Babe, its my family. They won't care if we're a little late. Besides, Thanksgiving isn't until tomorrow." He said, walking downstairs with his bags in his hand.

I crossed my arms. "I don't care."

He rolled his eyes. "Beth you know my family. You're acting like this is the first time you're meeting them."

I sighed knowing he was right. "Whatever. You win this time Payne."

He raised his eyebrows. "You know, you're cute when you're annoyed."

I shot him a playful glare. "Yeah well your cute girlfriend is about to rip your head off if you don't get in the car."

"That time of the month huh?" He asked.

"No I didn-" I began.

"It is." He smirked.

I sighed and we walked out of the house, our bags in hand. After locking the door we piled our bags in the back of the car and Liam pulled out of the driveway.

"You know, if we didn't have all those problems with breaking up and you being kidnapped, we would have been dating for almost three and a half years." He smiled.

"Its scary to think that three and a half years ago I saw you for the first time in two years." I said.

"Although these three and a half years have been some of the worst, they have also been some of the best. I mean, something has to be good about it if I got you, right?" He smiled.

I nodded. The car was silent a moment before I spoke again.

"Hey Liam?" 

"Yeah?" He asked.

"I love you." I said simply.

I saw him smile out of the corner of my eye.

"I love you too. More than you could ever even imagine." He said.

I fell shortly after into a dreamless sleep.

Hours later a was awaken by strong arms lifting me out of my seat. I didn't move though because I loved the safe feeling of being in his arms. I heard a car door shut and the footsteps of Liam walking up the stairs to the front door. The sound of knocking filled my ears and immediately followed by the opening of the door.

"Liam! Be-"I heard Liam's mum say.

"Mum shh. Shes sleeping." Liam whispered.

Liam walked into the house and the front door shut. He walked up the stairs and finally set me down on his bed where I curled up in the pillows and blankets and fell asleep again.

***Liam's POV***

I walked back downstairs before setting her on by bed and was immediately greeted by the rest of my family.

"Wheres Beth?" Nicola asked, coming out of the kitchen.

I raised my eyebrows. "She was sleeping so I put her upstairs. And you ask about my girlfriend before you say hi to me?" I smirked.

She rolled her eyes and gave me a hug. After I hugged each of my family members we all sat in the kitchen talking.

"Liam, I hope you haven't forgotten what I told you last time you and her were here for Thanksgiving." My grandmother said.

I blushed, remembering what she had told me.

"Oh Liam, now you have to tell us what she told you. It obviously has something to do with Beth considering you're blushing." Ruth smirked.

"Last time Beth was with us for Thanksgiving... so like two years ago, she told me that if I don't marry Beth it would be the biggest mistake of my life. But we were 18 and 19 then." I said.

"Well have you begun to think about it? I mean, you're 22 years old." My grandmother said.

I could feel my cheeks getting hot again. "Um. I- I don't know. Maybe in a few years but we're still really young. She's going to have tour and signings and interviews. Beth is going to be really busy once she gets back into full swing with her career."

"What about you? Are you and the lads going to get back together as a band?" My cousin Luke asked.

I shrugged. "I think it'll happen soon but right now I think we're just enjoying the time with our girlfriends and families."

We all talked for about an hour until I heard shuffling down the stairs and finally Beth entered the kitchen. A smile spread across her face.

"Well hello. Its nice to see all of you again." She smiled.

She turned to me and poked my cheek. "You dork. Why didn't you wake me up?"

"Because I wanted to let you sleep." I told her. "And now you're calling me a dork? Well guess what? You're a dork."

She raised her eyebrows. "Me a dork? Ha. Funny. No."

I wrapped my arms around her waist from behind and rested my chin on her shoulder.

"If you're a dork I'm a dork." I told her.

"Okay you two are going to kill me with your cuteness." Ruth groaned.

"But you love us. Its okay." Beth smiled.

After talking more with my family Beth and I went upstairs. We changed into our pajamas and I changed into a pair of sweats. We slipped into my bed and I held her close to my chest.

"Liam?" She whispered.

"Hm?" I asked.

"Where do you see us in ten years?" She asked me.

"Well I see myself with you." I smiled.

"What do you mean by that?" She asked.

"I see myself married to you. Lets face it Beth. I am completely and hopelessly in love with you and I can't see my life with anyone but you. You are the one I want. Only you." I whispered.

I felt a pair of soft lips press against mine and I smiled. It was silent for a while until she spoke.

"Hey Liam?" 


"I'm completely and hopelessly in love with you too." She whispered.
