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...


60. I Won't Let You Go

***Beth's POV***

-2 days later-

"Our flight was delayed two hours." Liam sighed, sitting down next to me.

We had been sitting in the airport in London for four hours now, waiting for some kind of update on our flight to New York.

"Two Hours? That means we won't get to New York until like 3 am." I groaned.

"I know but theres a huge snow storm and its not safe." Liam told my.

I rested my head on his shoulder and he pulled me closer to him.

"Everyone else is probably there already." I sighed.

"Its alright. New Years Eve isn't for another four days." He told me.

"I know." I replied with a sigh. 

"Get some sleep. I'll wake you up when the plane starts boarding." He told me.

I smiled at him. "I love you okay?"

"I love you too. Now sleep." He smiled.

I rested my head back on his shoulder and closed my eyes. For a while my mind just focused on the sounds around me. Finally I sipped out of consciousness and dream land pulled me under.

***Liam's POV***

I looked down at her as she slept and I couldn't help but smile. In only a few short months I would call her my wife. Its scary really. I met the girl I would love unconditionally for the rest of my life at the age of five. The girl that made my world. I wouldn't change a thing though. I picked up her hand and held it in mine. It made me think back to all the times I had lost her. All the times I had just let her go. I made a promise to myself then and there that from this moment on, I would never let her go. I looked down at her for a while before looking out at the airport. It was early morning and people were groggily walking around holding large cups of coffee or tea. 

"Excuse me?" A voice asked from behind me.

I turned my head and saw a girl who looked about eighteen or nineteen standing there with a notebook and pen.

"You're Liam Payne." She grinned knowingly.

I nodded my head. "I am. And you are?"

"Melody Clarkson." She said shyly. "I'm a big fan."

"Well Melody, its nice to meet you." I smiled.

"Can you sign this for me?" She asked.

I nodded my head. "Yeah of course."

She handed my her notebook and I signed my name. I handed it back to her and she gave me a shy smile.

"I just wanted to let you know that you and Elizabeth are perfect for each other. I was at the concert the first time she sang and I hoped you would marry her some day. I know she's asleep right now but can you give her this?" She asked, handing me a small note.

"Of course." I smiled.

"And I know I sound really... clingy I guess but you need to hold on to her. I may not know you two personally but I'm positive Elizabeth is an amazing person. Just like you said in that song you wrote, Fall For You, a girl like her is impossible to find." She smiled.

I looked at Beth and smiled at her. "Thank you. That means a lot. I don't plan on ever letting her go. She's my world."

"Well I hope you have a good New Years Liam. I'm really glad I finally got to meet you." She said shyly.

"It was nice to meet you too Melody. And thank you." I smiled.

She walked back over to her mum and I couldn't take my eyes off of Beth. I looked down at the note in my hand, debating wheather or not I should read it. I concluded that I would let Beth open it, as it was addressed to her.

-2 hours later-

"Beth." I whispered, softly shaking her.

"Beth I whispered again when she didn't stir.

Her eyes slowly opened and groaned. "Is the plane here?"

"Yeah. We need to go. They're not wasting time loading the passengers." I told her.

She slowly got up and I took her hand. We walked over to the line and got behind the last person. As we made our way through the line I never let go of her hand. As soon as we were on the plane we got a few stares but quickly made our way to our seats. As soon as we sat down we buckled our seat belts. Moments later the captain began to speak.

"Good afternoon. This is your captain speaking. Sorry about the delay. We are due to arrive in New York City in about 12 hours. Thank you for your patience and enjoy your flight."

Finally the plane began to move and it made its way to the take off run way. While the plane execrated down the runway I felt Beth take my hand. I brought our hands up to my mouth and kissed the back of her hand.

"I love you." I whispered.

"I love you too." She smiled.

As soon as the plane was level with the clouds the buckle light went off. I remembered then note in my pocket and took it out.

"A fan came up to us while you were sleeping. She said to give you this." I told her.

Beth took the note and opened it. 

***Beth's POV***

 When I first saw you walk out onto that stage for the first time I thought you were just another one of Liam's girls. A date and dump. But my conclusion changed when I saw you two next to each other. It was like you two were lighting up the stage brighter than the stage lights. It was like it was just the two of you. And at that time, you weren't even together. I saw the way he glanced at you when you weren't looking. It wasn't any surprise that only weeks later Eliam was the biggest headline. That moment I saw you two on stage changed everything. You became my inspiration. Not only did you have such a powerful voice but your story inspired me. The way you held your head high after everything that happened to you. I loved it. People told me I was stupid for supporting your relationship with Liam but I did what you did. I held my head high. You created a new power in me that I had never seen before. Years later I am now a stronger person because you showed me not to give up and that I needed to hold my head high and my fists down. So thank you. And when you hold Liam's hand, just remember, you're holding not only my world but the whole fandom's world. Have an amazing life with Liam and congratualations. xx

-Melody Clarkson

I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. I folded up the paper and stuck it in my pocket.

"Hey Liam?" I said.

"Yeah?" He asked.

"You have the sweetest fans on the planet." I told him.

"So it was a nice letter?" He asked.

"Read it." I told him, handing him the letter.

I watched his expression as he read it. His smile grew wider with each word. Finally he looked away from the note and looked at me.

"You are such an amazing girl. I'm serious. I've never really told you this but you are such an incredible girl. Just the fact that you're still here today, holding your head high after everything thats happened to you, its amazing. I mean, you've saved lives because you taught people that all you have to do is stay strong. I am the luckiest guy on the planet because I have you." He told me seriosuly.

I took his face into my hands and kissed him. His lips were soft against mine and I smiled. 

"I love you Liam. Okay? And for the record, you're a pretty amazing guy." I told him.

He didn't respond, he just pressed his lips softly to mine again. He truly was an amazing guy and I was the luckiest girl on the planet to have him. I won't ever let him go.
