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...


22. Signings

-December 11th-

***Beth's POV**

I woke up to the loud beeping of my alarm clock. I groaned and turned off my alarm and looked at the clock. 6:00 am. Before I could slip out of bed I felt Liam's arms tighten around my waist.

"Stay." He mumbled.

"Liam I have to get up. I have a signing in two hours." I whispered.

"Five more minutes." He said.

"No Liam." I giggled. "My new album is coming out today and I need to get ready."

He opened his eyes and looked at me. "Can I come with you then?"

"Liam I'm promoting my album today. That means I have like 20 signings." I sighed.

"I don't care. I still want to come." He said.

"Fine. But hurry." I told him. "I need to go take a shower."

"You know, it will take less time if we just shower together." He smirked.

I rolled my eyes. "You always want to shower together. And no."

I walked into the bathroom and stripped out of my clothes. I stepped into the shower and turned the water on, letting the warm water run down my back. After my shower I took my towel off the rack and wrapped it around me. I walked back into mine and Liam's room and found Liam sitting on the bed on his phone. He got up and walked into the bathroom as I began to get dressed. Finally when I was dressed I walked downstairs and grabbed a banana. I took out my phone and decided to post a tweet.

@ElizabethAshton: I just wanted to thank each and every single person who helped me get where I am today. I wouldn't be promoting my second album without any of you. Thank you. xx

A few minutes later Liam walked into the kitchen. He grabbed a banana and a muffin and began eating it.

"So, how does it feel to be promoting your sophomore album today?" He asked.

"I'm excited. I'm really excited."I smiled.

He sighed. "I just wish you could come on tour with us... like old times you know?" 

I wrapped my arms around his neck and smiled. "I know but we both have careers now. I know its hard but look at us, we're living our dreams. Yeah, I could be with you on tour or you could be with me on tour but that means that one of us isn't living our dream. Besides, my tour ends one month before yours. I get to come stay for the remainder of your tour."

"But its six whole months without you. And this time we aren't going to break up one month before your tour starts." He said.

"Yeah as long as I don't come home and find you snogging your slutty psychopath ex girlfriend, I think we're fine." I told him.

"Not a chance." He mumbled, kissing my lips softly.

"We need to go." I whispered against his lips.

He kissed me one more time. "Fine."

He and I separated and I grabbed my phone and he and I walked out the door. As soon as we were in the car I pulled out of the driveway and began the drive to my first signing. The car ride was silent for a few minutes before I spoke up.

"Its weird you know? Its been two years since my last album came out." I looked at him for a moment before looking back at the road. "Two years."

"So?" Liam asked.

"So, what if my old fans don't like the person I've become. What if they hate me?" I asked.

Liam just laughed.

"Why are you laughing? This isn't funny Liam." I scolded.

"It kind of is Beth. Do you honestly think that? That your fans who cried when they heard about your death, the fans that left flowers and teddy bears and balloons around our house, around the cemetery. The fans that still to this day listen to your album even though it came out 2 years ago. Those fans? Beth, if anything you'll have even more fans than before." He smiled.

"But I was gone Liam. For a year. They thought I was dead. They probably think I lied to them." I sighed.

"Not a chance. I'm sorry but that is complete bullshit. They love you. I promise."He told me.

Before I could say anything we pulled into the record store where my first signing was and saw people lined up around the corner. I just stared in awe.

"See?" Liam smirked.

"Well... well maybe they're here for someone else? Maybe someone else's album is coming out today." I huffed.

"Yeah cause people wearing Elizabeth Ashton merchandise are totally here to see someone else." He smirked.

I hit his arm. "You know what? Shut up."

I pulled into a parking place and Liam and I slipped on our Ray-Bans.

"Grace told me to come in back so I don't get mobbed by fans." I told Liam.

He nodded and we got out.

"Oh my god its Elizabeth Ashton!" I heard  girl scream from behind us.

I turned around and saw girls and a few guys running towards Liam and I.

"Go. Hurry!" I ushered Liam.

He and I ran to the back door and shut it behind us, locking it. I saw Grace standing there looking frantic. When she saw me she let out a sigh of relief.

"Oh thank god. I thought you would never get here." She groaned.

"Well I'm here now." I smiled.

She turned to Liam. "I'll have a chair set up for you so that if fans want your signature too then they can ask you." She told me.

He nodded and we followed Grace to the table where she handed Liam and I sharpies. The fans screamed as soon as we walked out. Grace let the first fans come up. They handed me their cds and I signed my name.

"Elizabeth, I just wanted to say that you are my idol. I think its amazing how you were able to pull thought the abuse from your father." The girl in front of me said.

I smiled. "Thank you. Whats your name?"

"Allison." She said.

"Well Allison, I'm going to give you words of advice, Stay strong and never let anyone change who you are." I smiled.

"Thank you." She said before she hurried away.

I signed a few more cds before trouble came. I looked up and saw a tall girl with blonde hair and blue eyes walk up. She glared at me.

"Now I know what you think, I'm here at your stupid signing for your stupid album because I'm a fan. No, I'm here because I want tell you in person how much of a slutty ass bitch you are. Don't get me started on attention whore. Why don't you just go back to being dead, you were better that way. The only reason why people are even here is because they feel sorry for you." She spat.

Ouch. I saw Liam stand up next to me.

"How dare you. How dare you come up to her and tell her that to your face. You don't know what she's been through. You don't know even half of it. Elizabeth is far from a slutty ass bitch because the only slutty ass bitch I see in this room is you. And you think she's an attention whore because she was kidnapped, abused and raped by her own father who made everyone believe she was dead? How would you like to live that life for just one day? She had to live it for nine months. You try doing that and sill be sitting here today. You try." Liam scoffed.

She stared at Liam for almost a minute before hurrying away. I looked at Liam.

"That was one of the most amazing things you've ever said." I smiled.

"Well it was the truth." He told me.

He took my hand under the table and squeezed it.

"Don't let them bring you down. Hold your head high and your fists down. Don't let them get the best of you." He whispered in my ear.

I gave him a small smile. "Remind me to thank you later when my fans aren't watching."

I turned back to the fan who was standing in front of me and signed her cd. Finally after what seemed like forever the signing was over. I capped my pen and handed it to Grace.

"Well, one down nineteen more to go." I sighed.

Liam and I walked back out to the car and got in.

"Are you sure you want to stay with me the entire day Liam? I think you'll get bored." I told him.

"Beth, I can never be bored when you're with me. I wouldn't rather spend the day with anyone else but you." He told me as I pulled out of the parking lot.

I smiled to myself. "Suit yourself then."

This is going to be a very long day.
