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

4. Making Plans

~Don’t Get Too Close~ Making Plans

Today I have English again. I do plan on apologizing to Liam for my rude remark yesterday. It was definitely uncalled for and I needed to do something about it. I doubt he’ll listen to me though. He’ll probably just yell at me and tell me to leave him alone again, but it’s worth a shot right?

I walked into the class room and sat down at my usual desk. Liam wasn’t in class yet, so I watched the door, waiting for him to walk in. What if he doesn’t come to class? What if he dropped out because he didn’t want to deal with me anymore?

I shook the thought away and went into my backpack to grab my notebook and pen. I felt a vibration coming from my pocket. I pulled out my phone and noticed a new text from Niall.

To: me

From: Bestie

Hey!! When ur done with ur classes wanna hangout??

I shook my head and replied.

To: Bestie

From: Me

Sorry cant :/ Mom comes to pick me up remember?

I put my phone down and looked up; still no sight of Liam. My phone vibrated again, and it was from Niall.

To: Me

From: Bestie

K :( can I swing by ur house later then??

I Smiled and replied.

To: Bestie

From: Me

Sure!! I’m sure my mom wont care :)

To: Me

From: Bestie

AWESOMESAUCE!!! I’ll be by later. See u then ;)

I smiled and replied to him with an ‘ok’. Then I slipped my phone back into my pocket. I noticed someone walk in. I looked up to see Liam walking in, coming down my aisle of chairs and sitting behind me. I felt a smile play at my lips. I was happy to know that he was still going to come to English even though he really didn’t like me.

I turned around to look at him, “I thought you weren’t going to come today.” I said and he looked up at me, confusion written all over his face.

“Why would I not come today?” he asked, raising an eyebrow at me.

I shrugged, “I thought since you cant stand to be around me that you would drop the class.”

“If I had the chance to switch English classes to get away from you, I would.” he spat. Well this escalated quickly. I shook it off and got down to why I was talking to him in the first place.

“Look Liam, I’m sorry for what I said yesterday. I was being rude to you and I apologize for it.”

“I forgive you. Besides, I’ve heard worse.” he said then looked away from me.

“Are you okay?” I asked. I think I’m going to regret that question in a moment.

Liam sighed heavily, “Jesus Christ, I forgave you. That doesn’t mean talk to me and ask me twenty freaking questions. Just because I accept your apology, doesn’t mean things have changed. I still don’t want to talk to you, now please, for heaven’s sake, leave me the hell alone!” he snapped. I felt my face fall, but quickly regained my blank expression. I knew I was going to regret it.

“I’m sorry. I wont bother you anymore.” I said, hurt clear in my voice. I saw his eyes turn soft, like he felt bad for snapping at me like that.

Liam? Feel bad? Because he snapped at me? That’s a good joke.

I turned around and stared forward, trying to ignore the irritating boy behind me.

~~~

English was over and I didn’t bother following Liam this time. If he didn’t want help then I’m not going to bother trying to help him. I went straight to my Child Development class and noticed Analeigh when I walked in. She waved and motioned for me to come sit down by her.

I sat down next to her and smiled, “Hey!” I said.

“Hey! So I wanted to ask you something.” She said with a big smile on her face.

“What?” I asked, raising an eyebrow at her.

“Well, the fair has been in town for the last couple days, and it will only be here until this weekend. So, would you like to come with me and a few other people to the fair?” she asked, still grinning from ear to ear.

I sighed a little, “I don’t know.”

“Oh come on Julina, it’ll be fun!” she said and gave me the puppy dog eyes with the pouting  lip.

I sighed and smiled, “Fine. It actually sounds like a lot of fun. I’d love to go. Would it be alright if I brought someone with me?” I asked.

She nodded, “Of course, bring anyone you want!” she said and started bouncing up and down. “This is going to be so much fun! I cant wait!” she smiled. I really liked Analeigh. She was very bubbly, and I knew that she would be that one friend that could always cheer me up. “Okay, so do you want me to text you the details like where, when, who, etcetera?” she asked

“Yeah, sure.” I said. We exchanged numbers, and she told me she would text me Friday when she had a plan set in stone. We continued to talk about school, and how much we enjoyed yesterday’s Psychology class. Our professor was very spunky. She was always cracking jokes and dropping an f-bomb here and there. It was a lot of fun. I hope the class is like that today.

We then got talking about our families. Analeigh has a younger sister that is sixteen named Isabelle. From the sounds of it, Analeigh doesn’t like her sister all that much, but would do anything for her. She lives with her mom and sister not too far from school. She lost her dad not too long ago due to cancer, and she misses him so much. She pulled out her necklace from under her shirt and showed me that it was a beautiful gold locket in the shape of a heart. Inscribed on the top of the locket was an infinity symbol. She explained that her father had given it to her as a present on her last birthday before he died. It had a picture of them together inside. Also inscribed on the inside was the words ’I love you -dad’. I saw a stray tear fall from her eyes, and she quickly wiped it away. I wrapped my arms around her, pulling her into a reassuring hug. It nearly broke my heart to see her cry. It was no wonder she was always so upbeat. She just wanted to try and be happy, like her father would want her to be. After a moment I let go, and she gave me a small smile.

Our teacher came in, ending our conversation on that sad note.

~~~

When I got home, I followed my mom into the kitchen. She set down her purse on the counter and took off her coat, hanging it up in the hallway. “So, what do you want to eat for dinner?” she asked as she came back into the kitchen.

“Food.” I stated simply.

My mom rolled her eyes at me, “Well obviously. Could you be more specific?” she said, smiling. I walked over to the refrigerator and looked inside, scoping for something to eat.

“How about BLT’s?” I asked.

My mom nodded, “Sure, sounds good. Could you bring out the bacon for me please?” she asked, and I did as I was told. I put the bacon on the counter and stared at my mom. “What do you want?” she asked.

“What, nothing. I just had a question.” I said.

“Yes?” 

“I was wondering if Niall could come over for dinner tonight?” I asked and my mom smiled.

“Sure, I don’t mind. Just no sleepovers tonight. It’s a school night.” she said.

I beamed with happiness, “Thanks mom!” I said, kissing her cheek. I ran up to my bedroom to text Niall.

To: Bestie

From: Me

To: Me

From: Bestie

Awesome!! I’ll be over in a few!

I put my phone on my charger and went back downstairs. It wasn’t long before Niall was on my doorstep, ringing my doorbell rapidly.

“Coming!” I yelled from the living room. I got up and skipped over to the door, opening it to see a smiling Niall.

“Did you really have to ring the bell like that?” I asked, eyeing him. He nodded with a devilish smile.

His eyes went wide, “Is your mom cooking?”

I smiled, “Yeah, we’re having BLT’s tonight.” I said.

“Oh my God, I’m so hungry!” he said as he walked into my house. “Mom, I’m home! I hope you have lots of food for me!” he yelled as we walked into the kitchen.

My mom laughed as she cooked the bacon, “Hi Niall, and yes I’m making lot of food just for you.”

“Yes!”

“Do you want help mom?” I ask and she shakes her head.

“No, that okay Jules. You and Niall can go hang out. I got everything covered in here.”

“Alright” I said and brought Niall up to my room. I shut the door and sat down on my bed. Niall soon followed. I gave him a weird smile.

“What?” he asked, eyeing me.

“Do you want to do something this weekend?” I asked, my smile growing bigger.

He narrowed his eyes at me playfully, “What does your evil mind have planned?”

“Do you want to come to the fair with me this weekend?” I asked. “I would love it if you came with me.”

“I don’t know. You know how I feel about clowns.”

“But Niall, just think of all the food you can eat.” I say, knowing I just hit his weak spot.

He sighed lightly, “Alright, I’ll go only if we steer clear of the clowns.”

“Deal.”
