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...


49. Family

***Beth's POV***

"How much longer?" I groaned as I watched cars pass by us.

"Five minutes less than when you asked me five minutes ago." He smiled.

I gave him a look. 

"45 minutes." He told me.

"Much better." I smiled.

"It seems like you're more excited to see my family than I am." He laughed.

"Probably cause I am. They're like my family too." I told him.

He stayed silent for a moment with a big grin on his face.

"What are you smiling about?" I asked.

"Nothing." He answered back.

"Well that nothing must be pretty fantastic." I told him.

"It is. Believe me. It is." He said.

I rolled my eyes. "You're such a dork."

"Well so are you so... I guess that makes us perfect for each other." He smirked.

"I guess." I teased.

"You guess?"He gasps.

"I'm kidding." I laughed. "I love you. Even if you are a dork."

About 45 minutes later Liam pulled down his street and finally we reached his house. He and I got out and grabbed our bags out of the back of the car and walked up the front steps. I opened the door and Liam followed me inside.

"We're here!" I called happily.

I could hear pounding footsteps from the floor above and moments later Ruth and Nicola rushed into the foyer. They each pulled me into a hug.

"Gosh, we haven't seen you in forever!" Ruth told me.

"Too long." I replied.

"Alright, say hi to Beth but don't even bother saying hi to your brother." Liam smirked.

"Shut up and give us a hug." Nicola said.

Liam gave his sisters each a hug.

"Mum and dad here?" Liam asked them.

Ruth shook her head. "They're um, out somewhere." 

Liam nodded. "Alright. Beth I'm gonna bring our stuff up to my room. You talk with Ruth and Nic for a while."

Liam grabbed our bags and walked upstairs. I turned to Ruth and Nicola.

"So I heard you finally got rid of that bitch Danielle last week." Nicola grinned.

I nodded, a smile spread across my face. "Yeah. She's gone. Probably rotting in hell right beside my father."

"I heard you father was at the trial. How did that go?" Ruth asked.

I sighed. "He lied about everything. Liam looked as though he wanted to kill him."

"Liam really loves you Beth. Honestly, I think each time I see you two together you seem more and more in love. Its adorable." Ruth told me.

"I really love him. There is no other man I would rather be with." I told them.

"Good because I don't think I could get along this well with anyone else." Nicola told me. 

Liam came back downstairs. "What are you talking about?"

"You." We all said at the same time.

He raised his eyebrows. "Oh?"

"We're just talking about how adorable you are and how much I love you." I told him.

"Aw. Typical girl talk?" He smiled.

I nodded. We heard the front door open.

"Are Liam and Beth here? I saw your car in the driveway." Liam's mum called.

"In the kitchen!" Liam called back.

Liam's mum and dad walked into the kitchen and engulfed Liam and I in hugs.

"How are you two?" Liam's mum asked, a huge smile on her face.

I looked at Liam then back at her.

"We're perfect." Liam told her.

We all talked for a while about various things. Finally it got late and we all went up to bed. As I was slipping my top on I turned to Liam.

"August 20th is in two days. What do you want to do?" I asked.

He smiled. "I've got something planned."

I crossed my arms. "Oh, it doesn't include "accidentally" forgetting our anniversary does it?"

"Not this time." He smiled.

I wrapped my arms around his torso and he rested his chin on the top of my head.


He kissed the top of my head. We laid down and he held me in his arms. I could barely see his chocolate brown eyes glistening in the darkness.

"You know how much I love you right?" He asked.

"Yeah." I replied.

"I love you so much Beth. I'm serious. I go mad just at the thought of you. You are my everything." He told me seriously.

I could feel the butterflies inside of me burst.

"Do you remember when we were about 8 and it was summer time. We were laying in my backyard looking for shooting stars?" I asked him.

He nodded. "We were making wishes on them and I was saying them aloud. You kept telling me that if I said them aloud, they'd never come true." He smiled.

"Well one of my wishes that night was to be with you forever, just you and me." I told him. "And here we are, to this day, together. It may not be forever but its close enough. I love you so much Liam."

"Can I ask you something?" He asked.

"Anything." I told him.

"Where do you see us in 10 years?" He asked.

I smiled a little. "Well I hope I'm married to you and we have a family."

"So you'd want to marry me?" He asked.

"Liam James Payne, there is not a single man on this planet I'd want to marry more than you." I told him.

Through the darkness I could see him smile.

"I love you Elizabeth Ashton." He whispered, kissing my lips lightly.

"I love you, Liam Payne." I whispered back.

And while no words were exchanged at that moment I couldn't have felt more in love with Liam Payne in any other moment.
