Looking at my reflection in the mirror, I put my earrings on waiting for Liam to come out of the wardrobe. The backstage workers were everywhere. As staring around started to get boring, I decided to give the floor a chance. Until two arms were wrapped up around me from the back, placing a kiss by my neck.
"Took you long enough" I complained turning my head to face him and giving him a kiss.
"We couldn't find any pants that fit my crotch, they were all so tight!" He said making me laugh at the fact that his penis is really that big. He noticed how hysterical I was laughing and joined me finally understanding.
"Laney, Liam, you've got 30 seconds left!" The roadie announced. I stood up from my seat surprisingly not feeling any nervous at all, regardless of the fact that I was going to be on a popular show to talk about my relationship with my boyfriend, who happens to be a boyband member.
"Aw they're looking adorable" Was the first comment that left Alan Carr's mouth as we walked in hand in hand. I giggled shaking his hand.
"Thank you!" I said sitting down as he shook Liam’s hand then he sat right next to me putting a hand on my lap. While Alan sat in front.
"Aw look at that, he always has to touch you like 'don’t look at her she's mine!'" Alan joked making both of us laugh really hard.
"Well yes better safe than sorry" Liam said making me hit his arm playfully unable to stop laughing.
"No but seriously, you two are perfect for each other! Will you please tell us what your first reaction was when your manager told you about this interview, Liam?” Alan said making Liam look down muttering ‘oh god’ I was curious to know what his reaction was, so I lifted his head up and encouraged him to say.
"Well, if you insist Mr. Carr, the first thing I said was ‘I don’t want anyone bothering her during the interview.” I smiled at Liam’s response as he looked deep into my eyes, as if apologizing for being embarrassing. Little did he know I love every goofy thing about him, and nothing he does ever embarrasses me.
"No no, it was more like “Nobody should bother my baby!'" Alan mimicked Liam’s deep voice almost sounding like him..
"Hey, don't pick on my boyfriend! Come here babe" I defended faking anger before I leaned in to kiss Liam me on his lips. When suddenly, the whole place was screaming and cheering.
"I am getting a lot of money thanks to that kiss!" Alan shouted over the screams making me laugh. Liam stole my kiss again making everyone go crazy. I looked over at Alan and he was wiping fake tears with his thumbs up. Probably thanking us because we've just made him a lot richer than he actually is. Getting a famous couple to kiss once in your interview can get you a lot of money.
"I would love to see another wonderful kiss, with your tongues and all...." Alan started "But let's just save it for the end because we only have ten minutes left, to talk about boring business" He rolled his eyes waving with his hands around. I nodded laughing.
"Liam, your new album; Midnight Memories hit the market a few weeks ago, right? And you’re currently filming a music video for one of your tracks. Is there anything else in your plate other than what we know-because we’re die hard One Direction fans-“ I laughed along with the audience at Alan’s comment. “A collaboration maybe?”
“Actually…” Liam wandered, turning to look at me as if asking for permission to break the news, I nodded allowing him to say. They were going to know sooner or later. “We’re collaborating with Laney-“
“Oh my! She can sing?” Alan exclaimed wide eyes. Shy, I chewed on my bottom lip.
“Yeah, she can sing, dance, play piano and guitar, andi Dj. Of course, that’s besides being an incredible girlfriend.” Liam proudly spoke, winking at me.
“Is that true Laney?” Alan addressed me.
I nodded, “Yeah, I play guitar and Piano with their band in the new album actually.”
"Wow! That’s something!” Alan exclaimed. “Well we sure can’t wait to hear your voice, you sound lovely when talking, let alone singing.”
“Doesn’t she?” Liam agreed with Alan making me blush again. This boy is going to be the death of me.
“She does. How do you find the England weather Laney? Since you’ve just moved from America to stay with your man.”
"It’s really cold! I’m still trying to get used to it but damn! It rains a whole lot over here, you can almost walk your pet goldfish!" I admitted making everyone burst into laughter.
"She always steals my loose sweaters, which reminds me I need to go shopping for more" Liam said gaining a pat on his arms from me, as I dramatically pretended to be sad for him.
"You used my tampons when you had a bad nose bleeding! You don't see me complaining about it do you?"
"Well those tampons worked just fine" Liam said showing thumbs up.
"Alright..." Alan started trying to stop the laughter. "Have you ever considered adopting a pet?" He randomly asked. I laughed remembering one memory.
"The only time I had a dog was when I was ten years old, and I didn't know that chocolate kills dogs.... So yeah rest in peace Snuggles!" I finished making the whole place laugh.
"Well, I have a present for you mates..." Alan said as the roadie came in with a huge bag, Alan slowly opened it and the thing in the bag started moving and making cute noises. He picked up two white Husky puppies with dark eyes.
"Oh my god!" I exclaimed covering my mouth with both of my hands, as Alan patted the puppies' head.
"I thought maybe you'll need two babies, to complete the cuteness" Alan said handing me one and Liam another one. It was the cutest thing ever, whenever I touched his nose he just yawns. I turned to Liam who was already smiling at me.
"We have our own kids now" I joked playing with the one on his lap. "Can we name it Golden, babe?" I suggested picking mine higher.
"Golden is cute, we'll call this one Woody" He said. "I love you Laney." He cutely mimicked holding Woody's pats up and waving at me with them.
"I love you Liam" I did the same. Then I looked up to see everyone biting their lips and holding their hands up to their chest. Suddenly, they all let out an 'awww' in chorus, I laughed along with Liam before Alan interrupted.
"I am rich! Tequila party for everyone!" He shouted standing up excitedly, with his arms wide open to the sky. Well 'Lianey realizing dreams with cuteness' is probably going to be in every magazine and gossip TV show by the night. Alan seemed to be unable to talk because of how dramatic he is- you all know that already- So we finished the interview instead of him.
"Thank you everyone for watching the exclusive interview with Laney and Liam at The Alan Carr show." I started while giggling.
"Don't forget to subscribe to our Youtube channel and like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter on the links below" Liam finished laughing too. Knowing that we both need to head down to the pet store to buy Woody and Golden what they need, we leaded our way backstage waving at the audience as Alan threw corners at the audience while screaming 'I am rich! God bless Lianey!'. I swear he's like the Ellen Degeneres of England.
"This one is cute" Liam said showing me a pink water bowl.
"But they're both males, they need something more like.... these" I picked up two bowls, one dark red and the other dark blue. I looked behind to see the food bowls with colors that match the water ones.
"No but look, this looks like Woody from Toy Story's outfit!" Liam yelled excitedly picking one that was white and had black dots, and the sides were bright brown.
"Yes this one is going to be great for Woody! It even has a food bowl, a leash and a collar... Wait is that a dog bed?" I asked pointing at the picture that was in the box.
"Yes, and they even have the poop cleaner" I couldn't help but laugh at the word he just made up.
"That is so not how it’s called" I laughed picking up the box and putting it in the cart.
"Oh really, what is it called then?" He mimicked putting Woody at the front of the cart.
"I don't know, but it's definitely not a poop cleaner" I grinned pushing the card to find Golden his supplies to.
"Let's go ask the cashier if there is Gold colored supplies in the same brand as this one" Liam said pushing me over with his hip and grinning at me. I yelped hitting his arm. But he didn't even feel my fragile hand on his arm because he was too busy pushing over to the cashier.
"Hello, can I help you?" The eighteen years old worker said eyeing me up and down.
"We were wondering if there is any other box of supplies like this one, but colored in gold" I asked showing him Woody's box. He still didn't get his gaze off my body, making me feeling slightly uncomfortable.
"Um, not a golden one. But we have one in yellow" He finally answered. I opened my mouth to talk but Liam beat me to it.
"Let's check it then" He said sending warnings to the guy, who seemed to catch it, because he dropped his gaze real quick leading the way.
"What was that for?" I whispered to Liam who was pushing the card behind the cashier.
"He was stripping you with his eyes!" Liam said almost too loud for the guy to hear. I smirked putting the hand that wasn't holding golden on his.
"I love you" I said in a normal voice tone, still smirking at the fact that he felt jealous.
"I love you too" He smiled kissing my cheek. The guy cleared his throat. Afraid that Liam might punch the guy for that, I stepped in front.
"It’s this one" He picked up the box and handed it to me.
"What do you think Golden? Do you want this one?" I asked not expecting an answer, but a bark came from behind.
"Well Woody approves" Liam said laughing.
"Alright then, we'll take this one" I confirmed putting it in the card to.
"Need any more help?" The guy asked my directly, I read his tag name.
"No, Alex. Just go" I answered knowing that Liam would have shouted at him for having eye contact with me. Alex nodded leaving us, as we pushed the card around looking for shampoo and food, and carriers since we travel a lot.
"Do you have any idea what kind of shampoo we're looking for?" I asked Liam who shook his head looking around. "Alright maybe we need to call the cash-"
"No no not that pervert! Let's just take... This one! It has 'earth' in the bottle so I guess it's good.." Liam protested making me laugh silently, before taking the bottle from his hand. It says ' Earth bath All Natural Oatmeal and Aloe Shampoo, 16-Ounce' in the bottle, well it's natural, everything natural is good right?
"So, how many do we need?" I asked again.
"Let's just take two" He said picking up another bottle and dropping both of them in the card.
"Oh look this one looks nice!" I pointed over at what looked like a pillow pet. It was too far I couldn't reach it until Liam lifted me up with his empty hand. Still up in the air I read out loud "pet stages puppy cuddle pet, I guess it's like their cuddle buddies you know" I explained looking down. He pulled me back to the ground.
"Let's just get it too"
"Taste of the wild grain-free high prairie dry dog food for puppy, 30-pound bag. Here take this" I said throwing the bag over at Liam who caught it reading too. Then putting it there as well.
"I guess that’s all we need?" He asked, I looked at the card and nodded, still no idea what we just did.
"That would be $200.44" Alex said putting the covers and shampoo products and food in a bag. Liam paid as I pushed the card out of the Pet store and over to the car. Liam opened the trunk where we put the two boxes and carriers.
"Hey how about we go shopping? You need sweaters anyway" I suggested holding Woody from the card as he got it in the line with one push.
"You mean, sweaters that are going to become yours sooner or later?" He teased ruining my hair.
"Hey! I need underwear, and i'll get the red ones" I winked knowing how much he adores red on my body, it’s like he goes crazy whenever I sleep with only a red bra and underwear on. Sometimes the make out session becomes so heated that I think we're going to do it right then and there. But he always stops himself. And I don't know why.
"To the mall it is!" He shouted starting the car. I always get what I want just by simply mentioning red underwear. Four for you Laney you go Laney!
I woke up to the sound of the dogs’ trainer blasting through the hallway, he’s a loud person. I groaned and rolled over, landing on the floor with a big thud. I guess I’m up now. I untangled myself from the sheets and sat on the bed. I placed my hand over to Liam’s side just to feel it cold, I turned around to find that he isn’t there. I glanced at the alarm clock on the side table that read 8:10am. Too early. My eyebrows furrowed together as I looked and caught a note and a single purple Carnation. He knows I hate roses, they remind me of death, over a thousand rose was in my dad’s funeral. I smiled as I picked both of them up and read the note.
Morning! Happy 2 years, love. It’s been the best 2 years I have ever had and I wouldn’t change any tiny detail about it! You’re my everything and that will never change. If you’re wondering where I am, Paul picked me and the boys to an early interview for a couple hours. I’m sorry I couldn’t be there to kiss you and hold you in my arms before telling you how much I love you, when you wake up. I’ll make it up to you later. unlimited x's and o's. I love you, babe. Happy anniversary!
-Yours only, L-Pee!
I smiled and picked up the purple, long stemmed Carnation off of his pillow. I brought it to my nose and took in it’s incredible smell.
“He’s so cute!” I muttered and placed the flowers down on the desk. I then smiled once more and grabbed clothes out of my closet to shower.
The warm water against my tired body almost felt like heaven. I began lathering shampoo and conditioner in my hair and hummed the song Sweet Dreams by Eurythmics. I wrapped the soft pink towel around my body once I finished the shower and applied soft after-shower NIVEA crème. I put on my black matching underwear, feeling like a VS model, before changing to skinny jeans and a white crop top. I checked myself in front of the mirror to realize that a jacket is missing in my outfit, I put on a grey jacket. Then opened my makeup bag and for once, I didn’t really work much on my makeup, I just put on foundation, applied mascara and lined my eyelids. And of course, used pink colored lip balm.
"Music!” I muttered to myself remembering my routine, picked my phone and began to play Kings Of Leon’s Use Somebody. I picked my bag and walked out whilst calling Eleanor, Louis’ girlfriend, and also one of my best friends. After two rings, she picked up.
“Hello?” She said through the phone.
“Feed me!” I told her. She giggled.
“Well good morning to you too Laney! How’d I sleep? Oh, very well thanks for asking” Sarcasm was oozing out of her British accent, making me laugh at her attempt to talk like Louis.
“Oh wait Perrie’s in the other line” I said as my phone did a beep signaling that another person joined in. “Barbara and Kendall too”
“Put them in” Eleanor said and I answered them all.
“Hey! Anybody knows where Zayn is?” Perrie’s worried voice made a fuss between the three girls, I greeted the doorman with a smile before hopping into my car.
“And Louis too, he’s not here” Eleanor said.
“Niall told me he was going out early, so I guess they’re all together” Barbara said, I could hear the sound of cars in the background, which meant she was driving, Good!
“Liam left me a note, they’re all in an early interview. Oh and let’s meet up at the restaurant?” I said. “Or even better, do you know any good shopping centers here?”
“Oh gosh there is Westfield Shopping Centre! Best shopping mall ever! I’ll see you guys at Del’ Aziz, it’s right by the entrance” Perrie answered sounding so excited.
“Alright, see you all there.” I said searching for Westfield shopping center on my GPS.
“Okay I’ll be there, see ya babes!” Kendall said.
“Bye!” Barbara shouted.
“Oh shit an old man is yelling at me for using the phone while driving!” Of course, Eleanor had to crack me up before hanging the phone.
After a very successful shopping with the girls, and eating at Del’ Aziz. Liam, Harry, Niall, Louis, and Zayn sent a text to each one of us, it was too cliché, like in Pretty Little Liars. Mine said:
You can’t imagine how much I miss you! :( It’s finally time to see you, get with the bodyguards into the car and just imagine me holding you in my arms, It’s time to make up for not being the first person you open your eyes to face <3
Which is completely lovely not to mention how cute it is! Anyway, each one of us got a different text, but the moral of them all is that each one of us needs to get in individual car with two bodyguards and go to wherever they’re taking us. And Right now, I was in the car waiting impatiently to see him.
“How long is left?” I asked the bodyguard in front of me.
“We’re here ma’am” As soon as the words left his mouth; I lifted my head by the car window to see a… stage? The bodyguard opened the door for me and I stepped out getting a full view of what it really was. ‘1D Girls Day’ was beautifully written by the entrance. Before I could realize it, a hand dragged me past the crying fans whose screams got louder as they saw me.
“Ohh! They have TV in here!” Eleanor said excitedly and grabbed the remote off the coffee table. She turned on the TV and began to channel surf. That’s when I realized that the girls dragged me to the boys’ dressing room. We settled on watching Spongebob. After two episodes, we heard a soft knock at the door.
“Come in!” I found myself yelling unaware. I looked over and saw Liam walk in. My face lit up and I went running straight over him. I wrapped my legs around his waist, he shut the door and caught me in a blink.
“Hey, babe” He said smiling widely at me.
“Hi” I smiled hugging him tightly.
“Happy one year anniversary, baby” He whispered in my ear. I shut my eyes and took in the time as best as I could.
“Happy one year anniversary” I said as I pulled out of the hug. He still held onto me tightly while I had my legs wrapped around his waist. I cupped his cheeks into my hands and leaned in kissing his soft lips. He put me down still not breaking the kiss.
“We’ll give you two sometime” Perrie said dragging Eleanor, Barbara and Kendall out of the room. Liam and I were still kissing like there’s no tomorrow, don’t judge us though! We can’t help but miss each other. Liam pulled apart and gave me sudden sad eyes.
“What’s wrong?” I asked confused.
“I have to go” He replied sadly.
“Oh, alright” I said looking down. He lifted my chin up with his finger.
“Chin up beautiful! I’ll be seeing you tonight” He kissed me one more time before heading out. I bit my lip and went to watch more Spongebob.
“Wait Liam!” I called realizing that I have so many questions he still didn’t answer, but he was gone… Instead, Eleanor walked in alone, giving me a hug. She and I have a friendship where we just know when the other one is upset, like now. I hugged her back and she sat on the couch In front of me.
“Don’t worry. You’ll see him later” She smiled at me, I smiled back and nodded. She’s right, it’s just a couple hours, no big deal…
*Two Hours Later*
Confused? No I was something more than that. As much as I wanted to just imagine Liam holding me in his arms like he said, I couldn’t help but wonder what is going on. First, he never told me he had a concert. Second, why all the mysteriousness? And third, why do I feel like everybody’s hiding something from me?
The guys were on stage, singing love songs, The crowd was insane! And about half way through the concert, Eleanor, Perrie, Barbara and Kendall whispered something to each other.
“We’re going to the bathroom, be right back!” Kendall said smiling widely. I nodded more confused than ever. Who gets excited to go to the bathroom? The stage went dark as the guys finished singing Kiss You. That’s something that doesn’t usually happen. The faint sound of the guitar played as people were shuffling around on the stage. I watched, trying to know what was going on, but it was too dark. A couple seconds later, a faint light turned on to the stage, revealing one chair. It was empty, besides the band, and all you heard was the crowd.
“What’s going on?” I whispered to myself. I felt someone tap on my shoulder and I turned to see a smiling Zayn, holding a bouquet of wildflowers. He handed them to me and I took them smiling. He held out his hand for me to take. I looked at him funny but took his hand anyways.
“Ready?” He asked me.
“For what?” I asked. He smiled and brought me to the stage. “No, Zayn I don’t want to go out here!” I hissed nervously.
“Trust me” He said to me. I bit my lip and began walking with him. He sat me on the chair and walked off stage. I was tempted to run after him, but stayed anyways. Twinkling lights lit up the stage beautifully. The crowd went insane as music began to play. I looked over at them and felt so nervous, confused, and about to throw up the chicken I ate earlier. Just then, I heard Liam’s voice singing. I swear my heart skipped a beat as I finally realized what was going on.
“Am I sleep am I awake or somewhere in between
I can’t believe that you are here and lying next to me” I looked over to my left and saw him walking out, spotlight shining. A smile crept onto my face as he walked towards me. Then Barbara sat on a seat next to me.
“Or did I dream that we were perfectly entwined
Like branches on a tree, or twigs caught on a vine” He grabbed my hand and kissed the back of it. I smiled and felt tears form in my eyes. I bit my lips nervously as the other boys sang to each of their girlfriends, every time one of them is about to finish, another girl shows up on stage. The tears came streaming down my face, It wasn’t sad tears, I was just so very impatient to kiss him. As Louis and Harry finished their part. Liam started again.
"Should I put coffee and granola on a tray in bed
And wake you up with all the words that I still haven’t said
And tender touches just to show you how I feel
Or should I act so cool, like it was no big deal" He tugged on my hand indicating he wanted me to stand up. I stood up and placed the flowers on the chair behind me. He wrapped an arm around my waist and faced the crowd with me. Before he could talk, I interrupted him.
"I already know the words you still haven't said" I whispered remembering every single night he confesses something to me thinking that I'm sleeping, when in reality, I gave up my precious sleep to hear his voice saying those beautiful words. He blushed hugging me. But then, he turned to the crowd.
“Well, today is me and my beautiful girlfriend’s one year anniversary!” He said to the crowd. The screaming got louder, making me smile. “The lads and I wrote this song” He said and turned to me, wiping the tears from my cheek and tracing his fingers down my jaw line to my chin. “I love you so much Laney. You somehow make me fall for you every single minute, you told me once that I have a big heart, and I’m telling you now, that you’re in every inch of it. Without you, working is hard, smiling is hard, and breathing is hard. Nothing will ever tear us apart. Because just like that, I love you way too much Laney! Way too much!” The screams, the boys talking through the mic, the thoughts floating in my mind, nothing mattered at that very moment, all I could focus on, more like feel is Liam’s love. And for once in my life, I made a decision, and this decision is loving, supporting and forever being with Liam James Payne.
I finally realized that the tears basically washed my entire face, and then he kissed me. It was magic, the way his lips connected with mine. It was right, and somehow, among all of the dizziness and the clinging to him like a life line, something inside me changed, never to be reversed. This new feeling could be dwelled upon later, because, for now, I was happy to feel his breath come and go with mine. this kiss was nothing to any previous moment in my life. it was a kiss of affection, deep passion Igniting from both of our hearts and coursing through both of our lips causing an electrical surge.
"I love you too, Liam!"
This is dedicated to Laney1217 because she commented saying that she’d like to be Liam’s girlfriend in my story, No I’m Not Related To Zayn. But, since the story is over, I couldn’t add her to my characters.
I decided to write her this one shot with Liam instead. Note that I don’t do one-shots, this is my first one. And I really hope you’ll like it Laney!
