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...


2. Just You And I

***Liam's POV***

-1 week later-

I sat silently by the window, looking out as the rain fell. I hugged myself not caring about the people around me or the rest of my surroundings. I felt completely empty and no one would be able to fill that place in my heart because it was far to big. It was around 10:00 pm right now and I hadn't moved from my spot all day. I wouldn't eat, I wouldn't speak, I wouldn't even look away from the window. It was almost as if I was gone. When Beth died, a part of me died with her, I am not completely whole. Nothing could replace the memories that her and I shared. Nothing could replace the smiles, the laughs and the twinkles in our eyes. Nothing could replace her. Finally after much thought i stood up from my spot and walked to the door.

"Liam where are you going?" My mum asked.

"Out." I mumbled.

I opened the door and walked out into the cold January twilight. The rain had stopped but it was still cold and cloudy. As I walked my feet splashed in fresh puddles. The only light outside were the dim lights coming from the few streetlights. I had my hands shoved deep in my pockets and I walked with my head down. I walked for at least 10 minutes before I found myself at her house. I walked up to the door and opened it. As the door shut behind me I looked around in the dark room. Little amounts of light escaped from the windows but other than that, the room was dark. I walked slowly over to the left staircase, the sound of my feet on the wood floor echoing with every step. As I walked up the stairs my hand ran along the railing. Finally I reached the top and I walked down the center hallway. I reached the room that I was looking for and walked in. Her scent hit me as soon as I walked in. I closed the door behind me and laid down on her bed.

Her walls were covered with pictures of her and I, her, Emily and Miranda, her mum. She looked so happy in all of the pictures. I saw one of her and I in school. I saw a picture of when we were 5. Then there was the one of us at christmas. I got up and took one picture off of the wall. I walked back over to her bed and held it in my hands and stared at it for a while. We both looked so happy in the picture. I rubbed my thumb over her face in the picture.

I still remember the last time I saw her face. The scared eyes, the weak smile. She may not have been the happiest then but at least I had her. As least I could be by her side and tell her that everything would be alright. I licked my lips, trying to hold back more tears. Theres not a single thing about her that I don't miss. Good or bad, it doesn't matter. I loved everything about her. I stared at the picture for a few minutes before I could feel my eye lids getting heavy. Finally I slipped into a peaceful sleep.

"Liam!" I heard a girl laugh.

"Liam c'mon!"

I turned around and saw a 15 year old Beth splashing around in her pool. A smirk spread across my face.

"And what if I don't want to come in the water?" I grinned.

She smirked at me. "Liam Payne I think you're just asking for it."

"Oh really? And I didn't know we were at the level of using surnames... Ashton." I smiled widely.

"Oh we're so far from that level. Now get your bum in this pool or I'll get it in for you." She laughed.

"Hm, threatening but I'll take my changes." I smirked.

"You asked for it." She warned.

She got out of the pool and rushed inside. A few moments later she came out with a water gun, a wide grin spread across her face.

"Thats unfair!" I gasped.

"You're the one who wouldn't move your lazy bum." She laughed.

As she came closer she began spraying me with water.

"I hate you." I groaned.

"Shut up. I know you love me." She grinned.

"Nope. I hate you. I'm officially ignoring you." I told her.

"Nice try Liam but I know for a fact that you could never ever ever hate me." She said, her hands on her hips.

I walked over to her and took the water gun from her and dropped it on the ground. I placed my arms around her and she lightly wrapped her arms around my neck.

"I'm just kidding." I whispered. "I don't hate you."

She looked at me for a moment. "Good. I was worried I had lost my best friend for a second." 

"Beth, you'll never loose me. I pinky promise." I smiled.

"Yeah, we're going to be those old people sitting on their porch rocking in their rocking chairs knitting. That'll be us." She grinned.

"No, you'll be knitting. There is no way I'll be doing that." I grinned.

"Oh wait, while I knit you'll be sleeping." She smiled.

"And you and I? We'll die within minutes of each other." I told her.

She shook her head. "Liam, friends die within minutes of each other. Best friends though, they die within seconds."

"I never wanna die. I just want to live my life with you by my side." I told her.

She grinned. "I'd like that Liam. You and I, best friends forever."

"And no matter what goes wrong in our lives-"

"If you become famous... which you will."

I rolled my eyes at her. "No matter what goes wrong in our lives, no matter which on of us becomes famous or not. You and I will always be best friends. Nothing and no one can ever take that away from us."

"Its just you and I. Together forever." She smiled.
