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...


23. Getting Mir Back


"Beth wake up!"

"Elizabeth Ashton get your bum up!"

My eyes slowly fluttered open and I saw Perrie, El and Em standing over me.

"What a nice way to wake up." I groaned.

"C'mon wake up. Its 12:34." Perrie said.

I slowly slipped my feet over the bed and my feet hit the cold floor.

"What are you guys doing here?" I asked.

"The boys are downstairs with Liam. We're spending the day with you two." El explained.

"I wanna sleep though. Do you know how tiring singings are?" I groaned.

"Yeah." Perrie said as we walked out of my room.

As we arrived at the kitchen everyone took their seats. I took one next to Liam.

"Good morning." Liam smiled.

I gave him an 'are you serious' look. "Really? I'm tired. I want to sleep."

"You can sleep later. I promise." He smiled.

I looked around at everyone and sighed.

"Am I the only one who doesn't feel like this is right?" I asked.

"What?" Niall asked.

"Just all of us here. It isn't the same without Mir." I sighed.

I saw Harry look down a sad look plastered on his face.

"Well if this dork hadn't cheated on her she would still be here." Zayn said, looking at Harry.

Harry looked up at Zayn. "If I could take it all back I would. I never meant for it to happen. The girl was a fan and she got me into her little trap. Liam you sorta know how I feel right?"

"To be trapped in a situation that could cost you your relationship. Yeah I do but Harry, thats still no excuse." Liam told him seriously.

I looked at Harry, the corners of his mouth turned down and his eyes were a shade of gray.

"Harry would you hate me so much if I called her and asked her to come and talk?" I asked.

He looked at me. " Like she would want to. She hates me Beth. You weren't there when she broke up with me. You wouldn't believe what she said to me."

"Did she say something along the lines of I hate you, I never want to see you again and I can't believe I wasted my time on you. She probably also called you a bunch of names." I said.

He just stared at me.

"Harry. I've known her for a really long time. Not as long as Liam but still a long time. I know for a fact that she still loves you she just doesn't want to admit it to herself." I told him.

"Yeah. Miranda really loves you Harry. We've never seen her truly love someone until she met you. With you it was love at first sight." Emily told him.

I got up and looked for my phone.

"Liam do you know where my phone is?" I asked him.

"Oh yeah I used it this morning. Its in our room. "He told me.

"Why were you using my phone?" I asked.

He shrugged. "Mine was down here and I was to lazy to come down and get it."

I rolled my eyes. "You're so weird."

I walked upstairs and got my phone and walked back downstairs into the kitchen. I found Miranda in my contacts and clicked on her phone number. I put the the phone to my ear and it began ringing. She picked up on the third ring.

"Hello?" A weak voice answered.

"Hey Mir. You okay?" I asked.

"Yeah. I- I'm fine." I heard her mumble.

"No you're not. Stop lying. I know you're not." I sighed.

It was silent for a moment. 

"Why are you calling be Beth? I- I told myself when I broke up with him that I would break off all ties with all of you." She mumbled.

"Well thats not an option okay? No matter what Mir, you will always be one of my best friends. Whether you hate me for no reason or not." I said.

I sighed. 

"Mir are you still here in London?" I asked.

"Yeah." She whispered.

"Can you come by?" I asked.

"Is he going to be there?" She asked quietly.

"I'm not going to answer  that. You'll have to find out for yourself." I told her.


"Please?" I asked her. "Please Miranda?"

There was a short silence before I heard her sigh. "Fine. I'll be there in 20 minutes." 

"Okay. Bye." I said.


I hung up the phone and set it down on the table.

"Well?" Niall asked.

"She's coming." I told them.

"How do you know she's not going to yell at me again?" Harry asked.

I shrugged. "I don't. I know what I'm going to do though." I said. 

I turned to Liam. "Remember what they did to get us to make up?" I whispered in his ear.

He nodded. "Louis and I will get Harry. You and El get Mir." He whispered back.

I turned to El. "When Mir gets here you and I are going to grab her and put her in the closet. Liam and Louis are going to get Harry." I whispered in her ear.

She grinned and nodded.

"Being secretive are we?" Niall smirked.

"You'll understand when it happens. Don't you worry." I smiled.

20 minutes later the chime of the doorbell filled through the house and I looked at Liam and Louis. 

'Now' I mouthed.

They nodded. El and I got up and went to answer the door. As soon as I opened the door I saw Miranda standing there, bags under her once blue eyes. Without saying a word we grabbed her hands and pulled her into the house.

"What are you guys doing?" She asked.

We stopped in front of the closet and opened the door. We shoved her into it and shut the door and locked it.

"Beth wha- oh my god I hate you. Elizabeth Ashton you are the worst best friend ever." She groaned.

"You'll thank me later." I told her through the door.

El and I walked into the kitchen with grins on our faces.

"It worked once. It will work again." I grinned.

"Not a bad idea." Zayn smirked.

I shrugged. "I hated seeing both of them so unhappy. I know how they feel because I had to go through that. Its not fun being super depressed 24/7."

Moments later we heard yelling from inside the closet. It was at least 5 minutes before the yelling stopped. Finally only small murmurs were heard. 

"I really hope they're not snogging in the closet." I said once it was completely silent.

"They probably are." Liam smirked.

"Why don't we go stop them before they take it to far." I said.

"Cock block much?" Niall smirked.

I rolled my eyes and walked over to the closet. I unlocked the door and opened it. I smirked at what I saw. Miranda and Harry snogging, like I had said. They immediately pulled away and stared off awkwardly.

"I said you could thank me later Mir." I smirked.

"What?" She asked.

"Its later Mir." I smiled.

"Thank you..." She said awkwardly.

"So are we all good?" I asked.

"Um... yeah." Harry said.

"Now why don't you two get home. I don't think Liam or I want that going on in our closet." I smirked.

"Beth!" Miranda gasped.

"Bye Mir and Harry." I smiled.

"Use protection! I don't want to be an uncle any time soon!" Louis called from the kitchen.

Miranda and Harry rolled their eyes and walked out of the closet.

"You know I hate you right?" Miranda asked as she gave me a huge hug.

"You'll get over it." I smiled.

"Beth... thank you. This is the second time you've done this." Harry smiled, giving me a hug.

"Oh shut up. I was only doing it because I hate seeing you two like that." I told them. "Now go. Go be all coupley and stuff. Just remember what Louis said."

"Remind me why I'm friends with you?" Miranda asked as she and Harry walked towards the door.

"Because you love me." I smiled as they walked out.

I walked back into the kitchen with a smile on my face. Everything was back to normal... for now.
