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...


44. Never Have, Never Will

***Beth's POV***

"Niall hurry up! You're gonna make us miss our flight!" Liam called over his shoulder.

I quickly stole a glance to the blonde haired boy lumbering sleepily behind us.

"Sorry, not all of us are willing to run through an airport at 5 am!" Niall groaned groggily.

Last night had been the last concert on their tour and Paul thought it would be a fantastic idea to get us a flight at 5 am. Thanks Paul. Soon we reached our gate just as they were about to close the doors. We handed the woman our tickets and made our way down the tunnel and into the plane.

"Alright, so we're going to switch up the seats a bit." Paul informed us.

"Are you just trying to make our lives hell this morning?" Niall groaned.

"It makes up for the attitudes you boys have been having the past few weeks." Paul told him.

"What are our seats?" Harry sighed.

"Beth, Harry and Niall are in that row." Paul said, pointing to a row of three seats. "And Liam, Louis and Zayn are in that one." Pointing to the row opposite to it.

"Paul." Liam groaned.

"Liam." Paul said sternly.

"Aw, is Liam sad that he can't sit next to Beth?" Louis smirked.

Liam shot him a small glare. Things were still not completely back to normal between the two of them.

"Leave it." Liam muttered.

"Liam we'll only be like 3 seats away." I told him.

He nodded. "I know."

We took our seats and buckled our seat belts.

" I think Paul is only doing this so Liam and Louis can talk it out." Harry told me.

"Yeah. Its stupid that theres still some tension between them." I sighed.

"Liam has always suspected Louis of something. Even before you two were together." He said.

I shrugged. "Yeah but Liam should know by now that I would never do something like that to him."

"Hes protective over you." He told me.

"Yeah I guess." I replied.

I turn my attention to Niall who had already fallen asleep. I rested my head on the side of the plane and looked out the window at the pinkish sky. As the sun slowly rose above the clouds I could feel my eyelids getting heavy and soon I fell into a dreamless sleep.

***Liam's POV***

I shifted in my seat as I looked out the window, thinking about the past, the present and what the future held.

"Look mate, we really should talk." Louis said quietly.

I turned toward him for a swift moment before my eyes flashed back to the window. 

"Whats there to talk about?" I asked, as I watched the clouds pass by.

"The fact that you are still hung up on this theory you have." Louis told me.

"Its not even that. I can't trust you." I told him.

"So you're mad because you can't trust me?" He asked, confused.

"Glad to know you're listening." I said to him.

"Honestly, Liam how do you think Beth feels about your attitude?"He asked.

I shot him a glare. "Don't make this about her."

"Why don't you trust me Liam? Why?" He asked, very straight forward.

"I don't trust you because of what I've witnessed. You flirt with Beth, you hang out with her sometimes more than me and there have been rumors about you two. And you ask why I don't trust you." I told him coldly.

"Liam that was one news story. We already explained that it wasn't real." He sighed.

"It wasn't just one news story. There was another one like 3 years ago." I scoffed.

"Three years ago. Well I hope you remember that that too was fake." Louis said.

I stayed silent and turned my head towards the window.

"I'm going to make myself clear. Believe me or don't believe me, no matter what, you are always one of my best mates. I don't fancy your girlfriend, nor did I ever fancy your girlfriend. While she may be an amazing girl, she has her heart set on one person. That person is you. She is like a little sister to me and I care about her a lot but not the way you care about her. And lets not forget the fact that I have an amazing girlfriend of my own. So Liam, I'm only going to say this once. I do not fancy Beth, never have, never will. There is nothing going on between us. Never have, never will." Louis told me seriously.

I stared at him for a moment then looked across the aisle at Beth who was sleeping. I let out a deep sigh before looking at Louis. I could see the seriousness in his eyes. He knew by now that I had backed down.

"And Liam?" He asked.

"Yeah?" I replied softly.

"Hold on to her. Only days ago you almost lost her. Just like you said in that song Fall For You, a girl like her is impossible to find. You would have to search the globe to find a girl like her but knowing you, you would never find one. Theres only one Beth and if you mess up again, I'm sorry might not do it." He told me seriously.

I thought about his words. You would have to search the globe to find a girl like her but knowing you, you would never find one. He was right. I would never find a girl like Beth because no girl could make me smile like she does or make me light up just at the mention of her name. No girl on this planet, even if I did search the globe, could make me feel the way she did. Finally I spoke.

"Thanks Louis. You just made me realize something." I said, giving him a small smile.

"So are we good?" He asked.

I nodded. "Yeah."
