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...


15. Home

***Beth's POV***

I was back. The whole world now held the knowledge that Elizabeth Ashton was back. It had been a week since I had woken up from my coma and finally the doctored informed me that I would be released today. Since I woke up everyone has been treating me like I'm made of glass.

Liam walked into my hospital room with a huge smile on his face. "Ready to go?" He asked.

"I've been ready for a damn week." I groaned.

He took my hands into his. "Well now you can finally go home. Nothing to worry about. No psycho father stalking you around. No one to disturb us from moving on with our lives. Just you and I."

"Just you and I." I repeated. "Its been a year you know, since everything has been okay. A year ago my father kidnaped me. A year ago I was taken from the man I love."

He sighed. "And a year ago I lost the girl who meant everything to me."

"But you have her back now. For good." I smiled.

He smiled and kissed my forehead. "I love you."

"I love you too." I replied.

"Will you two stop snogging for a second so we can get Beth out of here?" Louis smirked walking into the room.

I rolled my eyes. "Whatever Lou."

I slipped off the edge of the hospital bed, my feet hitting the cold stone floor. My legs wobbled as I tried to stand. I felt myself being lifted in the air and held bridal style.

"Liam." I groaned. "Put me down."

"No. I don't want you falling and getting hurt." He told me.

"I'm not going to fall." I protested.

"I don't care. I still want to carry you." He smiled.

I poked his cheek. "You're such a dork."

"But I'm your dork. Theres a difference." I grinned.

We all walked out of the hospital and got into the car. As Louis drove to nine and Liam's flat the radio was on. I began listening at the mention of my name.

"Who says people can't rise from the dead? Only a week ago the world learned that singer Elizabeth Ashton was actually alive after being reported dead almost eight months ago. Some are saying that Ashton faked her death for attention but many of us believe that is an untrue fact. Only moths before her death Ashton was kidnapped by her father, Steven Ashton. Fans believe her father faked her death so that no one would come looking for her. Only one question is on our minds though, what made Elizabeth Ashton come back?" 

"They think I faked my death? What the actual fuck?" I asked.

"Haters gonna hate." Emily sighed.

"Simon is probably going to want to talk to me." I said.

"Yeah. He wants you to come in within the next week to talk about a few things." Liam told me.

"I really hope he doesn't plan to send me off on a tour any time soon. I kinda want to just spend some time with all of you. Then I'll think about finishing my album and tour." I sighed.

"You should put that song you sang to me three months ago on your album." Liam said.

"Safe and Sound?" I asked.

He nodded. "Its an incredible song."

"Now you have to sing it to us." Harry told me.

"Maybe later. I'm not going to sing you a song in the car." I told him.

Louis pulled into the driveway of mine and Liam's house and I just stared at it. We got out and I looked up at the large house.

"Bad memories?" Liam sighed from beside me.

"I haven't been here since the day he took me." I mumbled.

Liam's hand snaked around my waist and he kissed my temple. "He's gone. For good this time."

I nodded slowly. He and I slowly walked up the path towards the house, everyone on our tail. Finally my hand rested upon the gold door handle and I pushed it open. The sight before me was horrifying. There were holes in the wall, papers strewn everywhere. A lamp laid on the ground and a few books were off the shelf. Picture frames on the walls were crooked and broken and the pillows from the couch now laid on the floor. I turned to Liam.

"What the hell happened here?" I gasped.

"I haven't been here since the day I found out you were dead. The day I heard the shot go off on the other line. I lost it." He mumbled, looking at the ground. 

I didn't say anything. I just pulled him into a hug.

"Its okay. I'm here now." I whispered.

I took his hand into mine and intertwined our fingers as we walked in.

"Do you want us to come over later?" Louis asked.

"Yeah. We can all catch up on everything." I smiled. "Come over at around 8 and we'll have a movie night."

"Alright. See you at 8. Don't have too much fun without us." Harry smirked.

I rolled my eyes. "We won't now leave." I laughed playfully.

They all left and closed the door behind them. As soon as the door shut Liam turned my face towards him and pressed his lips to mine passionately. My arms went around his neck and my hands ran through his hair. His grip around my waist tightened. The kiss was full of passion, full of love. It was almost like at that moment I fell in love with him all over again. Finally he pulled away when we were both out of breath.

"I've been waiting to do that for three months." He whispered.

"Well then why don't we press rewind and replay it." I smirked.

Again his lips were pressed firmly to mine and I found myself pushed against the wall. He pulled me up and my legs went around his torso. At that moment nothing could bring me down. I was on cloud nine. I was soaring. No words can fully describe just how much I love him.
