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...


38. Heartbeats

***Liam's POV***

I stood in the airport, my eyes watching as people poured out of Beth's gate. My eyes dated from person to person, looking for the one with long dark hair and blue eyes. I watched as kids reunited with their parents and husbands reunited with their wives and yet I stood here alone, no one to rush up to. The last few people exited the gate and finally I laid my eyes on her. Her eyes searched the airport. I would've called her name but I wouldn't have gotten just her attention but the attention of all the teenage girls around us. I began walking towards her as her eyes searched and finally her eyes met mine. A wide grin spread on both of our faces and she dropped her bags. Next thing I knew she was running to me and finally into my arms. I lifted her up and pulled her into a passionate kiss. Just the feel of her lips on mine and her touch sent electricity throughout me. Finally once we were both out of breath we pulled away, our faces still inches apart. I looked into her deep blue eyes.

"I missed you." I whispered against her lips.

"I missed you too." She whispered back.

My arms pulled her tighter towards me and I pulled her into another kiss.

"Oh my god its Liam Payne and Elizabeth Ashton!" I heard a girl squeal.

"Shit." I mumbled.

I grabbed Beth's hand and pulled her away from the growing crowd of girls.

"Its always that one fan." She chuckled.

***Beth's POV***

I could hear the screaming from behind us as we rushed to baggage claim. We quickly found my bags and rushed out of the airport. We found the car and quickly piled my bags into the car and hopped in. Liam quickly drove out of the airport and we both gave a sigh of relief.

"So, no welcoming party this time?" I asked.

He smiled. "Nope. Just me. The lads were begging me to let you come but I said no."

I rolled my eyes. "So how is tour going?"

"Its good. It would have been better with you here though. Its weird not having you as our opening act." He admitted.

"Aww. Did someone miss me?" I cooed.

"We all did. But I missed you the most." He told me. "How was last nights concert?"

"It was sad, yet exciting." I told him.

"Yeah, the last concerts are always the hardest." 

I nodded. The car ride was silent for a while before I spoke up again.

"So um, are you going to tell me what really happened when you got off that plane with Danielle?" I asked.

I saw Liam's fingers grip the steering wheel tighter and his jaw tense. "I told you Beth. Nothing happened. We just talked."

When he saw the look I was giving him he sighed. "Look can we talk about this later? I haven't seen you in like four months and I missed you."

"Fine but I'm not letting this go." I told him.

Soon Liam pulled into the bus lot and we got out of the cars. After talking my bags out of the back we walked onto the bus. 

"Lads! Beth is here!" Liam called to the back of the bus.

"Niall wake up!" I heard Louis say.

The next thing I knew four boys had emerged from the bunks, one looking a bit sleepy. I put a smile on my face and placed my hands on my hips.

"Just gonna stand there or are you gonna give me a hug?" I asked with a smile.

One by one they each gave me a hug.

"We missed you." Louis told me as he hugged me.

"I missed you boys too." I told him.

"Don't ever go on a six month tour at the same time as us again." Niall said.

I let out a little laugh. "I'll try Niall but its not up to me."

"C'mon, lets put your stuff in the back." Liam said, taking my bags in his hands.

"Um, what are you doing?" I asked.

"Taking you bags to the back?" He said.

I took my bags from his hands. "Um , no you're not. I am though."

Liam smiled and rolled his eyes. "Whatever you say Beth."

"Yes. It is whatever I say." I told him.

He and I walked to the back of the bus.

"Alright so there is a top bunk open right there and a bottom bunk open right there." He said, pointing to multiple bunks.

"Well where is yours?" I asked.

He pointed to the top one across from the open top one. 

"Then this one." I said, pointing to the top one.

I set my bags down and walked to the front of the bus. I saw that Paul now stood at the front of the bus.

"Paul!" I squealed, hugging him.

"Beth, long time no see." He smiled.

"Too long." I told him.

"Alright so Simon has instructed me to give you the rules in case you forgot in the past six months."He told us.

We took our seats in the lounge and set all of our attention to Paul.

"Alright, I assume you all know that the bus must stay clean at all times. No running, screaming, shouting or playing loud music. Yes Niall and Harry, that means you too." Paul said.

"That was like one time!" Harry protested.

"One time is enough. Also, since you boys have not been following this rule lately, I am now enforcing it, bedtime is at 11:00 on concert nights and 1:00 on travel nights. Each morning you must be up at 10:00 unless we are traveling to a new city. And Beth, don't think I don't know about you staying up late because Grace has filled me in on everything." Paul said.

"Remind me to call her later." I said dully.

"And of course, no letting fans on the bus whatsoever. And one more thing, this is mostly for Liam and Beth but if any of the rest of your girlfriends happen to visit anymore during tour this is for all of you. I think you all have an idea of what is and isn't appropriate on the busses." Paul informed us.

"Like thats gonna stop them." Harry smirked.

My eyes widened and I slapped Harry's shoulder. "Shut up Harry. Like it would be different for you and Mir."

"Oh believe me Beth, it wasn't when she came to visit." Liam smirked.

"So those are the rules. I think you all have enough common sense to know what else is right and wrong." Paul concluded. "I'll let you get back to your reunion."

"Byee Paul!" The boys shouted.

Paul walked off the bus.

"So we watched part of your concert last night because a few of your fans mentioned it to us on Twitter. Let me get this straight, you would marry Liam, kiss Louis, date Zayn, hug Niall and kill me." Harry smirked.

"Oh you know I love you Harold." I smiled.

"Aw and you would marry me?" Liam cooed.

I his his chest. "Shut up. Would you rather I kill you and marry Harry?" I asked.

"No. no. I'm just teasing you." He smiled.

"Clearly." I rolled my eyes. I turned to the other boys. "So, how are the girls? I haven't herd from them in forever."

"They're all good. They all came to visit at least once during tour." Harry told me.

"And when Mir, El and Perrie were here the bus was far from quiet." Niall smirked.

Harry, Louis and Zayn gave death glares to Niall.

"How about we watch a movie!" I declared.

"Yeah, thats a good idea." Zayn said, not breaking the glare he was giving Niall.

"The Notebook."Harry and I said at the same time.

"You know, maybe I wouldn't kill you Harry." I smiled.

"The Notebook? Again?" Liam groaned.

"Liam honey, I'll watch Toy Story with you later if we can watch The Notebook." I told him.

"The entire trilogy?" He asked.

I nodded.

"I love you." He told me.

"I love me too." I smirked.

"You don't love me?" He asked.

"Nope. Ew, why would I love you." I said sarcastically.

"Because you wouldn't have stuck around for the past 17 years if you didn't." He told me.

"Hes got you there." Louis said.

"Yeah I know." I smiled, looking into Liam's eyes. "The thing is, even if I had met him yesterday, I still would love him."

Liam smiled and kissed me softly. I heard the boys roan.

"Payback." Liam told them.

Soon we began watching The Notebook. Liam held me close and I had my head rested on his chest. As the movie played I could hear his heart beating.

***Liam's POV***

"What happens if a car comes?" Allie asked as her and Noah laid in the road.

"We die." Noah replied simply.

"Thats my favorite part!" Beth whispered.

"This entire movie is your favorite part babe." I whispered back.

“She was my dream. She made me who I am, and holding her in my arms was more natural to me than my own heartbeat. I think about her all the time. Even now, when I'm sitting here, I think about her. There could never have been another.” Noah said.

I looked down at the girl I held in my arms. She was my dream. She made me who I am. Holding her in my arms was more natural than my own heartbeat. I think about her all the time. Even now, when I'm sitting here, I think about her. There could never have been another.
