Don't Get Too Close // Liam Payne AU

They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

16. Help Me, Niall

Don't Get TClose~ Help Me, Niall -Liam-   DO YOU KNOW THE feeling to want something? The feeling of wanting to do anything for someone even though you might not know them that well. That's how I feel all the time now. I want to help her. I want to show her the dangers she's facing, so that she will believe me when I say he's dangerous.   I think about this all the time. I think about it when I'm getting dressed in the morning, when I drive into school, hell I'm even thinking about it now as I walk up the cement sidewalk towards the library. I can't get her out of my mind, and I feel like I'm running out of options.   She won't listen to me, but maybe she'll listen to a friend. The blonde one that came between us when we got into our little fight in the library not too long ago. He protected her from me. Maybe he can help me protect her from Harry as well. I have to find him.   I quickly made my way into the library. When I walked in, there were a lot of people sitting at the small, round tables, gossiping about the bullshit in their lives.   I looked around, noticing Julina standing by a table that a blonde haired boy was sitting at. I didn't want her to see me, so I sat down in a chair behind a small bookshelf. I moved a book out of the way to have a clear look at their table. I opened the book up for the people around me to assume that I came here to read, or study up for something.     I glanced over at their table, and Julina was still standing there. She looked as if she were waiting for someone. I watched as she pushed her long hair off her shoulder, laughing at her blonde haired friend. I could slightly hear her laugh from behind this bookshelf, feeling a familiar small tingling of butterflies in my stomach. She has a beautiful laugh.   What am I saying? I can't be falling for her. I'm just here to protect her, nothing more will ever happen between us. From time to time, I would glance in their direction, looking to see what they were doing, and wondering why she hasn't left yet. It's almost time for class; she really should've left by now.   Just then, a sickeningly familiar figure walked up behind her, wrapping his arms around her waist, hugging her tightly. Her hands stroked up and down his arms across her waist as she laughed at the way he buried his face in her neck. What hurt me the most was the way she looked up and smiled at him. It was different; a smile I've never seen on her face before. The elegant features of her appearance lite up with joy and happiness, leaving me feeling as if I failed her.   He kissed her cheek before letting her out of his embrace. My body burned intensely with jealousy. I want to be the one to hold her, and make her laugh. I want to be the one to see that smile, and kiss her until the end of our days. I berated myself, mentally slapping myself across the face. Stop getting so attached, damn it. I can't get so close. It'll only hurt me in the end. I just want to protect her from Harry, that's it.   I observed the way her friend reacted to Harry's presence. He seemed okay with the demon in front of him. He was laughing along with him having the time of his life. I wasn't surprised to see that he was very friendly with Harry. Knowing Harry was a huge snake in the grass, it wasn't a shock to me that her friend thought he was a great guy. I watched as Harry shook her friend's shoulders lightly with a giant grin on his face as Julina and her friend laughed. Julina pulled her bag up off the chair and onto her shoulder, bidding goodbye to her friend. Harry went to her side, wrapping a protective arm around her shoulders. They both waved goodbye to her friend, and left him sitting alone in the library. He pulled out a textbook and a notebook with a pen, opening them up to do, what I assumed to be homework.   Now was my chance to approach him. I placed the book back on the bookshelf, hurrying out of my chair. I casually walked over to his table, trying not to alarm anyone if I quickly moved to where he was sitting. I pulled a chair out and sat down across from him before he could reject me.   He looked up at me confused, but then scowled, "What do you want, Liam?" he sighed, putting his nose back into the book he was looking at.   I was confused, "Wait, how do you know my name?"   He shrugged as if it was nothing, "Julina talks about you all the time." he said, not looking up from his book.   "She does?" I asked, trying not to sound surprised, but failing.   He looked up at me with a small smirk, "Yeah, she's quite fond of you." he said, his smirk soon disappearing and a hard expression taking over, "On the other hand, I'm not too fond of you."   I nodded, "I understand that, uh," I said trailing off, still not remembering his name.   "Niall, my name's Niall." he spoke suddenly, realizing why I had stopped talking.   I nodded again, "I also understand that you are very protective of her."   He nodded and shrugged, "I can get a little over protective, but I have to be. She has been through enough, and I don't need guys like you coming into her life, trying to hurt her." he said coldly.   "I'm not trying to hurt her, if anything, I'm trying to protect her as well." I said truthfully.   Niall rolled his eyes, "That's not what it looked like last week when you two were yelling at each other."   I sighed, "I've had a change of heart since then."   Niall huffed and sighed, "Mmhmm," he hummed, pausing for a moment, "What are you even protecting her from anyway? You don't even know her." he inclined.   He was right; I didn't know her like he did, but I did know Harry and what he was capable of, "Harry." I stated simply.   Niall looked at me confused then laughed, "Harry? You've got to be kidding me, right?"   "No." I stated, shaking my head. I maintained my somewhat serious expression, trying to be somewhat convincing.   Niall stopped laughing and looked me dead in the eyes, "Harry is a great guy for her. He treats her the way she deserves to be treated. I don't want you coming around, ruining this for her. She needs something good in her life for once." Niall spat.   "Harry is not good for her. I'm trying to protect her from getting hurt by him. The Harry you know and see is a mask, waiting for the right moment to reveal his true colors." I replied.   "How do I know this is for real? That you're not just jealous of Harry?" he asked, eyeing me suspiciously. Why does everyone think I'm jealous of that prick? I can't stand him. Why would I be jealous of him.   "Because I know Harry and how he operates. I just don't want to see what happened to me, happen to her. So please, I'm begging you. Help me, Niall. I can't do this without you."   Niall sighed and looked up at me, "I like Harry, Julina likes Harry a lot and I like seeing her happy. He doesn't seem bad to me. Julina really needs something good like this in her life right now. Please don't come along and ruin it for her." Niall warned me again. "Don't you have English right now?" he asked.   I looked at him confused again, "How do you know that?"   He laughed, "Julina said she met you in English, and that's the class she has right now, so therefore, don't you have somewhere to be?" he asked, raising an eyebrow at me.   I sighed in defeat; he was never going to take me seriously, "Yeah, I should get going." I sighed. I stood from my chair, shoving my hands in my pockets. I nodded at him before turning away. He's never going to help me. She's going to get hurt and it's going to be all my fault.
