Writing with love - Friendzone

Love letters are kind of dated, they are not really written anymore. a simple letter written by hand and not some words on a printed out word document or like any others would send in a email now a days. no a real one, a genuine letter that gets you intrigued. that makes you want to know the person behind the words.

Allison writes a handwritten letter, after some serious talking her into it by her best friend. When she sends it to her favorite band member she didn't expect to get an answer. not at all in fact, because what world famous boy have time to write a letter right?

Liam has changed after the breakup with Sophia, he uncomfortable in crowds and more shy than before. He wants to change back to his old self but he doesn't know how. The boys get a box of fan stuff sent to the office and Liams eyes gets caught on a simple envelope with a all handwritten letters.
he feels like he need to answer it, so without the others noticing it he hides it and takes it home.

2. Half of me

- Liam - 

 

I sighed and felt myself fall deeper into the fluffy couch in Peyton an Harry's living room. Peyton had been living with harry for a few months now and she ha really made this house feel like a real home. it did feel like a home before her too but then it was more of a bachelor-pad and that was obvious. but now you could really tell there was a girl living here too.

they celebrated their 6 month anniversary today and we were here for barbecue, me and all of the boys. I felt a bit left out though. since me and Sophia broke up nearly 4 months ago I didn't really like being with a lot of people, I had actually started to avoid gatherings like these. but then again I still loved being on stage and sing but the big crowds really made me uncomfortable. on the stage I was safe, on the stage it was just me and the lads and the band.

I loved my fans and i didn't want to disappoint them by not signing autographs when I met them outside of concerts or hotels. But it was hard and the fans had started to notice. I felt myself go back to the kind of shy guy I used to be before the x factor and before the boys became my friends.

 

Peyton was sitting in Harry's lap in the dark blue armchair he was sitting on. she looked at me and I felt her sympathy as she eyed me.

All the boys loved her and she had become more than just being Hazza's girlfriend. Even though we had met her a few times before she and Harry actually got together none of us really new her back then. Louis was probably the one knowing her most since he and Harry used to be so close, they still are. but now Peyton and I was probably the closest out of the boys except for Harry of course.

He gets a bit jealous sometimes telling me of that she is his girl and was his best friend first. She was probably one of the best friends I got right now, she knew more about me and Sophia then what the boys knew. 

She shook her head and pointed with it towards the kitchen area. I had avoided talking to her for weeks now about the hole Sophia thing and I rather not talk about it at all but Peyton was one of the most stubborn girls i had ever met. I sighed again and got up and walked over to the fridge to get a new beer.

 

"are you going to talk about it soon? you need to, you know." she said as she leaned against the kitchen-counter watching me.

 

I leaned against the opposite counter and opened the bottle. on some level I guess she was right. I just didn't know what to say about it, it wouldn't get her back.

 

"why? what is there to talk about? we broke up end of story." I said and took a sip of the cold beer.

"Li, stop being so difficult. what happened? we all thought you were happy and then you were just broken up." she said and folded her arms over her chest. 

"she didn't love me anymore and she found someone else. I don't know what else there is to say about it." I sighed and ran my free hand over my face and into my hair that was messy and unstyled at the moment. 

"why didn't you tell us? why didn't you just tell me?" she asked.

"because I didn't want to talk about it, I still don't." I said.

"are you over her?" she asked.

"I don't know, its doesn't feel like it did after me and Dani broke up but I'm still not okay you know." I sighed defeated and jumped up on the counter looking down on my hands, picking on the label on the bottle. 

"its been like 4 months, i thin you can be over her if you think and feel like you are." she said walking over to me jumping up on the counter next to me.

"maybe I am then. I don't know and right now I don't really want to think about it or any new girls either for that matter so don't go try getting me to start dating yet okay, I have other things to worry about." I said.

"I wasn't going to." she said smiling and holding her hands up in like defense.

"hey, get back in here you two. we are going to watch a movie." Louis called from the living room looking at us.

"be right there." Peyton called back and jumped down from the counter and walked into the living room with some bags of chips and snacks she had pulled out of the pantry.

 

I followed close behind her and sat down on the same place in the couch as before next to Niall and Zayn. Louis and Eleanor had a armchair similar to the one that Harry and Peyton were curled up on. 

Apparently Perrie had this thing with her band o she wasn't here tonight but Zayn had been non stop texting her all night so she might as well have been here anyways. 

Niall and I were the singles in the group now and I felt like I had this large shoes to fill. Like I was suppose to go out to clubs and start dating and have some one night stands and really play out the single life.  but the thing is that that is not me. I'm not a player kind of guy, I had never been and I will never be a guy like that ever.

 

I sighed and got my phone out as the intro to Hangover 2 started and the others made themselves comfortable to watch the movie. Zayn sitting with his phone smiling like an idiot, Niall eating directly out of the potato-chip bag and the couples curled up in their armchairs. Eleanor was nearly asleep already on Louis with his arms around her since all her finals had started she was tired a lot. Peyton, she was snuggling up in Harry's arms hugging him as he was kissing her forehead lightly. I looked down on my phone and I went on twitter looking at my mentions and followed and favorited some tweets before closing the app again and gave the movie and effort

It didn't take long though until I drifted of to sleep for a few hours and woke up for a few minutes noticing I was laying down on the couch now with a blanket over me.my skinny jeans was pealed of and laying over the back of the couch and so was my plaid shirt, I was just in my boxers and t-shirt. i started to look around still with sleep in my eyes and saw that the living room was dark and I noticed that Niall and Zayn was sleeping in the armchairs with their feet on the footrest. I sighed and rolled over and went back to sleep.

it was early morning and I woke up of the smell of fresh coffee. I stretched and sat up running my hands over my face to wake myself up a bit. I turned around and looked over to the kitchen area and saw Peyton and Harry smiling and dancing around in sync behind the counters making breakfast for everyone. 

I felt a bit jealous of them, they have what I want, what I thought I had had with Sophia and now I was all alone. I didn't have that anymore and I probably never really had it with Sophia anyways. not if it was that easy for her to leave. to stop loving me, I just wanted to know what i did so wrong for her to not tell me that she was falling out of love. what did I do wrong?

Harry and Peyton were inseparable, they would always be together. they were together even if they weren't in the same room. They were meant to be, anyone could see that.

I got up and put my jeans on and walked up to the counter and sat own on the bar-stool looking at the happy couple that was staring back at me. 

 

"what?" I snapped and knew that I was being unfair using that tone to them since they had been nothing but supporting these last couple of months. 

"someone woke up on the wrong side today, coffee?" Peyton asked.

"I'm sorry, yeah thanks." I sighed and took the cup that Harry held out to me. 

"Uhm, Simon called. he said they got a box of fan stuff sent to the office again. it was mostly stuff to sign and send back but he wanted us to come in and sort it out later today." Harry said.

"sure, we'll all go after breakfast then yeah?" I asked and looked at Harry.

"yeah, Louis and Eleanor has already left like an hour ago, they had some stuff they wanted to do before at Lou's apartment and I think Eleanor had some studying she had to do so he is going to drop her of there and meet us at the office later." Harry said and poured himself a cup of the warm black liquid.

"dibs on not waking Zayn." I said quickly and took a sip from my coffee and smiled.

"not it." Peyton said right after me.

"not it!" A tired Irish voice said coming up behind me. 

"heeey," Harry said as he swallowed the sip of coffee he had taken just before we started the hole 'not it' thing.

"sorry babe, snooze ya loose." Peyton said smiling and kissed Harry's cheek.

it took us like 2 hours to eat get ready and into our cars and out of the driveway and of to the office. I had Niall in my car since Louis had picked him up last night and left him stranded at Harry's house. 

We drove up to the main building that we called our office. I parked and got out. Niall followed close behind and as we got closer to the front door there were some paparazzi and fans standing there.

I felt myself tense up, my hands started to sweat and my heart was pounding inside my chest. I was starting to panic a bit but then Niall gave me a reassuring clap on my back before we stopped for the few fans that was standing there waiting for us to sign some autographs. we gave them some smiles and then we walked into the building with the fans screaming and the cameras snapping pictures after pictures. the second the door closed behind us I let the out a deep breath, a breath I didn't even realized that I had held. I was safe now, they weren't that close anymore. Niall looked at me and gave me a smile as we got into the elevator to get to the right floor. thank god he had been with me, if he hadn't i would probably have not been that calm. 

 

After a half an an hour we were all sitting around the table in the conference room opening the box that Simon had talked about. it was just like he had said a lot of stuff just to sign and send back but then it was a few presents to us and a lot of letters. mostly computer written stuff that all looked pretty much the same to me. a lot of them asking for a date, marriage or if I or any of the other boys would sleep with them. 

I wasn't a 100% into this though, my mind was elsewhere. I sighed and signed a few pictures to the return to sender pile. when Niall heaved a new load of letters and stuff up on the table that's when I saw it.

A pale simple envelope with black handwritten letters on. It had my name on it and I got up, reached over and grabbed it. I then walked a few chairs down the table and sat down. it was not like I didn't want the boys to see it I just did it without really thinking about it. I didn't know exactly what made me so intrigued with the letter but it didn't matter. I looked over to the others and saw them giggling and signing looking at the stuff that we had gotten from the fans. 

I looked back down on the letter and started to open it. I got the folded page out of the envelope and unfolded it carefully. 

it had beautiful handwritten words from the start to finish of it. it wasn't that long but it didn't matter. I liked it, that was my first impression of it and I liked it even more when I read it through.

                                                               

Dear Liam Payne                                                                  

I don't really know what to write to you, I just know that I wanted to. so I guess I just start from the beginning. how are you? I hope you are doing well.

I'm actually writing because my friend talked me into writing this letter.

she thinks that I will end up all alone after she leaves to study in the US with her boyfriend but I don't think so. just because she is happy with him and want everyone to be as happy as her, doesn't mean I will end up alone right? 

I don't think that love is that easy like she says it is. Love is something that needs work and you need to be two to be in love, to fall in love. 

I'm not the most outgoing person, the way she is and I guess she is right when she says I need to live a little so I'm taking a chance and for me to even write this letter is crazy.

but you only live once right? So I would really like to get to know you, what if we are meant to get to know each other? so would you like to get know me?

Love Allison Davis

 

I read trough it again and I had the urge to write back to this girl. she wasn't like the other fans that practically offered themselves to us, no this girl asked me if I wanted to get to know her.

she didn't ask for much and I felt that she was so different even though I didn't know her. she asked me how I was doing and she felt so sincere in that. she had some good points in her words too.

you really had to be two persons in a relationship and just because someone is happy doesn't mean that everyone else has to be too just because a person wants you to be.

I smiled and this was the first time in a long time I actually felt something more than hurt or bruised ego so I folded the letter and put it back into the envelope and sneaked it into the inside pocket of my leather jacket. I walked back to the boys and continued with signing of stuff. 

I had something to look forward to now, to get home and write and answer to this girl, to Allison. 

I think that my mood might have changed a bit more radically than I expected and the boys must have noticed it because they where watching me intently before smiling.

 

"Is the old Liam finally coming back?" Niall asked and smiled at me widely.

"yeah I guess so, slowly but surely" I smiled back at them.

 

I hadn't realized that that must have been my first genuine smile since me and Sophia broke up. that was a bit sad though, people liked my smile and I liked making people smile too. I had to get back being me again. I needed to get back to myself, I couldn't be this half sort of shadow of myself anymore and I think that that letter from her just made me want to find myself again. it gave me hope.
