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...

***Liam's POV***

"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. I think of her as the girl I met on the first day of primary school, the girl I fell in love with, the girl who was by my side for as long as I can remember and the girl I lost. Although she may not be with us anymore, I know she died a fighter. I know that not a day will go by until the day that I die that she will not cross my mind. Elizabeth will always be my true love. I remember when we first met. I remember when we first kissed. I remember the first time she looked me in the eyes and told me she loved me. And I remember in that moment that I had no idea how important three words would mean to me. I never knew that such a beautiful, incredible, amazing girl would be gone from my life in such a few short months. I still remember the last few days of her being in my life, how she told me that her and I would last forever and no one would ever change that. And in that moment, I knew it was true. Her and I, we are forever. To this day i still ook to my side and know she is right there with me through everything. Although I'll never be able to see those crystal blue eyes again or be able to hear her contagious laugh, I know she is with me. I know that until the day I die I will never be the same man I was because a part of me is gone. She was my other half and I will never, not once forget her. I love you Elizabeth." I said into the microphone as tears fell from my bloodshot eyes. 

I looked out over the crowed in the church, tears in each of their eyes. I stepped down from the podium and lumbered back to my seat. It had been a month since Beth's death. Since the moment I heard that shot fire a part of me died with her. I haven't been the same since and no one is blind to see it. I've pushed practically everyone away and barely ever speak. Not a second goes by when she doesn't cross my mind.

We had all gone back here to Wolverhampton because Beth was going to be buried next to her mum.

We all walked out of the church into the light rain and I stood there, my hands in my pockets. I looked up at the cloudy sky while everyone walked by me. I stood there, letting the rain fall onto my already tear stained cheeks. As I stared up at the sky I couldn't help but wonder, was she up there? Was she watching over me right now?

"Liam... c'mon we have to go." Harry mumbled from a few feet away.

I didn't respond to him nor did I break my gaze from the gray sky. I felt a tear slide down my cheek as I looked at the ground. Finally I followed harry back to the car and we all got in. I took my seat and rested my head upon the window. As Louis pulled out we were all silent, tears threatening to fall from our sorrowful eyes. I watched as the buildings and cars passed by.

"Stop by her house for a moment will you?" I mumbled.

Louis nodded silently and began the drive to her house. Once we arrived at the beautiful house I got out, two items in my hand. I walked up to the front door and found the spare key. I unlocked the door and slowly stepped inside. The wall paper had begun to peel and a layer of dust covered the floor. Spiderwebs covered the walls. As I walked in I could hear a creak with every step. I looked down at the two items in my hands. The drawings of the spaceship and the flower. I placed both of them on the floor of the entry way next to each other and stared at them for a moment. I felt a hot tear slip down my cheek.

"Although you may not be here by my side now, you will always be in my heart. "I whispered.

I looked around at the pastel colored walls, the darkness was almost overwhelming. Thats when it finally sunk in... it sunk in deep. Elizabeth Ashton was dead and never again would I see her smiling face, her beautiful eyes. Never again would I hear her angelic voice or her mesmerizing laugh. I would never hold her in my arms or kiss her again. Elizabeth Ashton, the girl whom I had known since the age of five, the girl I loved... dead. Gone. I fell to my knees on the dust covered floor and let the tears fall. My heart felt dead, like there was not a single bit of happiness left over. I could almost see us as little kids, running around in this room.We had not a care in the world, everything was perfect. And yet, here I sit on the floor of the house that brought so many memories now brings so much heartbreak. I hear the door open but I didn't bother to turn around.

"You okay?" Louis whispered.

I didn't respond I just stared at the wooden floor.

"Liam..." Harry mumbled.

"Liam you can't keep shutting us out like this." Niall said, sadness in his voice.

"W-we all miss her. She's in a better place now, away from her father." Harry whispered.

Still my gaze did not meet theirs nor did I look up. No one could comfort me now. No one could tell me that everything was going to be okay because nothing was. I stood up and pushed past the boys, walking out the door. I began to run. I don't know where I was going, I just ran. Tears fell from my dark eyes as the light rain fell upon me. I finally found myself in a park. A park in which Beth and I had shared so many memories. I fell onto the grass and let the rain fall onto me. Just the fact that her and I have so many memories just makes not having her worse. Everything I say, everything I do. It reminds me of her. It reminds me that she is gone and I am never getting her back. Thats what hurts the most. As I lay there the lyrics to Moments played in my mind.
 

Shut the door
Turn the light off
I wanna be with you
I wanna feel your love
I wanna lay beside you
I cannot hide this
Even though I try

I try. I try to hide the feelings I contain within me but it all just comes out. The tears, the memories. Everything. From that moment on I knew I would never be the same.
