I can't believe it's been three months since Kristen broke up with me. To be honest, there's not a day that goes by when I don't think of her. As much as I feel guilty about it, since I have a girlfriend, I can't stop it. Don't get me wrong, Emily is an amazing girl, but she isn't Kristen. I will say that Emily has become more important now than when we first started dating. We start our tour about two months ago in the UK. It had been amazing so far and the crowds are amazing. Today, we finally got the day off and I spent it with Emily in London. Right now, we were on our way to Subway, after agreeing that they had the best sandwiches. We ordered and then sat down at one of the tables. The thing I hated about being famous was the fact that people wouldn't leave you alone. I haven't been recognized yet with my hoodie and sunglasses but it's only a matter of time before I do.
"Thank you, babe," Emily says, taking a bite out of her sandwich and then leaning her head against my shoulder. I wrapped one arm around her waist while the other was holding my sandwich. I feel like Niall right now, but Subway is amazing. About a minute later, I hear a squeal behind us.
"Oh my god! It's Liam Payne! Can I please get a picture?" The girl asked, fan girling.
"Of course love," I say, putting my hand around her waist for the picture. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see Emily and she didn't look too happy to be interrupted. That's what I loved about Kristen. She was so sweet and understanding. There was one time when we went out for lunch and I took pictures for over twenty minutes while she stood there smiling. Emily also got so annoyed with fans and hated when I stopped for them because it 'takes time away from the two of us.'
"Thank you and is this your girlfriend?" She asks, looking over at Emily.
"Yeah, I'm guessing you've heard about it already," I say. I feel like I have no privacy with these kinds of things.
"Yeah. I respect you and I'm glad you're happy Liam, but..." She pauses and whispers the next part in my ear, "I think you're better off with Kristen. She's the one."
This took me by surprise. My eyes widen as I look at the girl. She smiles before walking away. Emily glares at me.
"What did she say?" She asks, tapping her fingers on the table impatiently.
"It was nothing important. How about we go walk around, maybe do some shopping," I say, trying to distract her from pushing the topic any further and it works.
"Ok! C'mon!" She says, dragging me out of Subway. We walk down the street and I almost freeze when I hear a familiar voice. "Whats wrong babe?"
"Oh, nothing. I just thought I saw some paps but I may be wrong," I say, trying to cover up my anxiety. I would know that voice and laugh anywhere. It was coming from in front of me. I look up to see and brunette girl walking with a guy. She was laughing at what the guy just said and as she looked over at him, I caught a glimpse of her face. My breath hitched in my throat as I realized who it was. It was Kristen, but who was the guy? I listened to their conversation as we continued to walk.
"I can't believe you flew all the way from Pennsylvania to come see me! I haven't seen you in months!" Kristen exclaims. Oh, so it's someone from where her dad lives.
"Well, I heard what happened and I wanted to make sure you were ok. Plus I wanted to see my girl!" He says, pulling her beanie over her face. His girl? What?
"Gavin, stop it! You are going to mess up my hair and then have to fix it. Wait! Bad idea, that would turn out worse. Anyway, thanks for flying out. It really means a lot," she says, giving him a kiss on the cheek. I don't know why, but I already don't like this guy Gavin.
"Hey, that's what best friends are for, right?" He says and I let out a breath I didn't know I was holding. That's when I decide to cut in.
"Kristen? Is that you?" I ask, mentally face palming. Of course it's her, stupid.
"Liam? What are you doing here?" She asks walking to the side of the sidewalk before stopping.
"We have the day off, so I decided to take Emily out in London for the day. What are you doing here?" I explain and then ask her the same. I can feel Emily tense up beside me and its quite obvious that Gavin does too as her stands closer to her, almost protectively.
"Gavin came to visit me from Pennsylvania. He's my best guy friend and we've known each other since preschool. I was showing him around London," she says, then looks over at Emily and I can see someone flash across her face for a second, before she covers it up. Was that pain? Jealousy? I couldn't tell, but something told me she wasn't very happy to see her.
"Liam, can we go now?" Emily asks in a whiny voice.
"Hold on one second babe," I say, wrapping my arm around her waist.
"So, you two are still together I see," Kristen says, smiling. I know her too well though. I can see right through her fake smile. She's hurt and you can hear it in her voice. I don't know why though.
"Yeah, we are. He's the best boyfriend ever! Too bad you got rid of him," Emily says smirking. I have to admit, that was extremely rude of her. Maybe she's not as nice as I thought. I could tell that Kristen tensed up and so did Gavin so he gently placed his arm round her shoulder.
"That's...great. I'm, uh, happy for you," she says, pain clear in her voice now. She sounded like she was about to cry. "I think we should go now Gavin."
"Hold on one second. Liam, can I talk to you real quick," he says and I nod, starting to follow him. Emily begins to follow but Gavin notices and adds, "alone."
We walked a little way down before Gavin stopped and turned to me, angry.
"What the hell is your problem dude?" He yells and my eyes widen.
"What did I do?" I ask. Did I miss something or what?
"Can you not tell how hurt Kristen is? Did you know she cries every night because she thinks she's a birch for breaking up with you. Not to mention, your girlfriend doesn't seem like the nicest person, no offense. She hurt Kristen and you did nothing. I don't know how you can't see that he misses you. I would try to take her back before someone else finds out how great she is. She is not someone you want to let go, believe me," he says and my eyes widen even more. She cries over me? I caused my baby pain? Wait, did I just call her my baby? Oh, what the hell? I need to get her back, even if it means breaking up its Emily. I'm starting to think Emily never really liked me anyway.
"You're right. Thank you for telling me that, now lets go!" I say, speed walking back to them. When I get back, I stop in my tracks. Emily is sitting there alone, smirking.
"Where's Kristen?" Gavin practically yells at her, causing her to smirk even more.
"Oh, she said she had to go and not to come after her," she says and I notice for the first time, how evil her smile looks right now. She looks over and sees me, then starts crying.
"Whats wrong, babe?" I ask, but the words feel like poison in my mouth.
"She called me a b-bitch and said I-I was u-ugly," she says, through tears. What? Would Kristen actually say that?
"Oh, cut the shit Emily. Kristen would never say that to anyone. You're a liar," Gavin says, before giving me a look that said 'do you seriously believe her or are you going to go find your girl'. He was right, she would never say that.
"I'm sorry Emily, but this isn't working out. I like someone else and I need to go help them," I say and she looks shocked.
"Are you seriously breaking up with me because of the bitch? You'll regret it Payne. She already hurt you once. Don't be surprised if she does it again," she says, but I don't hear anymore because I'm running down the street, looking for Kristen.
I can't believe Emily would say what she just did. I couldn't take it anymore so I ran as far as I could and ended up here, in an alley.
Liam and Gavin had just left to talk about some leaving just Emily and me. She glared at me before beginning to talk.
"Hey bitch, listen up. Liam is mine now. He doesn't like you and never did. He felt bad for you. He even told me himself. It's pretty obvious he likes me more, I mean he tried 22 times," she says, smirking at me as I avoid making eye contact. That one stung.
"Why is he all of a sudden amazing to you. It took you 22 fucking tries for you to realize that. You're hilarious, going around with him and pretending to be nice but when he's gone, you are a real bitch!" I spat out angrily. I saw shock register on her face, but didn't expect what happened next. He arm swung around as she punched me in the face. I felt something sharp collide with my cheek and lifted my hand up to my face to wipe the liquid dripping down my face. Yup, definitely blood.
"Oh whoops, did my engagement ring scratch you? I'm sorry, oh wait, no I'm not," she says as she holds out her hand to show the engagement ring, "you better get fucking used to me because I'm not leaving any time soon."
Before I could say anything, she kicked me in the gut with her 3 inch heels before laughing. I held my stomach and got up, turning the other direction, and ran.
----------End of Flashback---------
That is how I ended up here with my jacket tied tightly around my waist to stop the bleeding from the cut on my stomach where Emily's heel hit me. I was also squeezing my nose from her punching me. I probably looked very beat up even though I just got hit twice. I was also a mess from letting everything process. I was crying before but all my tears dried out and now I just feel numb. Liam is engaged after two months. Of course he'd find someone closer to his age. Emily was also nineteen while I'm not even seventeen yet. Snow had started to fall on the ground but I wasn't even cold, at eat bot that I could feel. I was in skinny jeans and an oversized sweater. My jacket was around my waist, so that didn't help much. Damn Emily and her perfect blonde hair and ice blues eyes. Of course Liam would choose her, I guess I just didn't expect this soon. I stop when I hear my name being called. I turn to see Liam coming towards me. I have no idea how the hell he found me but something made me feel good. Liam was looking for me and calling my name. I looked down as he got closer, not wanting him to see what his fiancé did to me. I felt someone lift my chin and I stared into a pair of chocolate brown eyes that I had become so used to now.
"Kristen, are you ok?" Liam asks and then notices my face and the blood stains on my sweater. His eyes widen and he's about to speak, but I stop him.
"Liam, I'm fine. I, uh, fell," I said, but my voice was not firm at all and Liam could easily tell I was lying.
"Kristen, who the fuck did this to you?" He asks me and I want to cry. I know I can't lie to him about this, so I take a deep breath before answering.
"Your fiancé," I say, but it comes out in barely a whisper. I can tell he heard it though, because his eyes go wide and his face went pale. Why is he so shocked?
"My fi- fiancé?" He asks, stuttering and I nod, not able to answer without breaking down.
"I don't have a fiancé. Where the fuck did you hear that?" I could tell he was getting angry and it scared me a little to see him react like this.
"Emily. She punched me in the face and then showed me the engagement ring. That's what made this scratch on my cheek," I say and his face goes even paler than it already was, which I didn't think was possible.
"We're not engaged and never are going to be. It was probably fake and I broke up with her after I talked to Gavin. He made me realize something I hadn't before. Lets go get you cleaned up and then we can talk," he says, picking me up bridal style and walking me to his car.
We drive sick to my house, where Gavin is already waiting and the girls are there too. I feel horrible for leaving Gavin like that. Liam picks me up and walks me inside, setting me on the counter. He takes off the jacket and then looks at me. I know exactly what he wants to do. He's asking for permission to take my shirt off so he can look at the cut closer. I nod hesitantly. He slowly lifts the shirt over my head and my instinct is to cover myself up, which is exactly what I do. I cross my arms over my chest and look down.
"Hey, love, it's ok. You're beautiful ok? You have nothing to be self conscious about, plus I just need to see your cut," he says, and I slowly move my arms away. I don't know how, but he makes me so relaxed.
Liam walks over to the sink and wets a paper towel. He walks back over to me and slowly dabs the wet rag on my cuts to get the blood off. I wince as pain throbs against where the cut is. Liam smiles at me apologetically before continuing. I look down and realize that one of my small hands is in Liam's bigger hand. It makes my heart flutter and I smile.
"Where are your bandages, love?" He asks and I point to the cabinet over the sink. He walks over and grabs one then comes back over and wraps it around my stomach carefully.
"Thank you Liam," I say and he nods. His face suddenly gets serious.
"Kristen, I wanted to talk to you," he says and I nod for him to continue, "I know you my not think this, but I really miss you. I thought Emily would help me get over you, but it didn't work and actually made things worse. It caused you to get physically hurt by her. I know you said that you couldn't handle it, but I can help. I really, really want to help. I could even get a private teacher for you to be home schooled and come on your with us. The girls could come too and we could visit your mom every once in a while. I really think we can work this out. Please give me a second chance and ill show you it's worth it cause you mean everything to me and I don't want anyone else."
I didn't know what to say. That was so sweet of him and I know turning him down would be the worst decision of my life. My life was worse without Liam and I don't think I can do it alone. He even asked me to come on tour with him. "Of course Liam. I can't believe I ever let you go because you are the best thing that has ever happened to me. I love you."
I can't believe I just said that. We've been back for not even a day and I already told him I loved him although I meant every single word I said.
"I love you too, Kristen. Nothing is going to change that," he says and it makes me want to cry with joy. I want to scream to the world that Liam loves me. In that moment, I know he meant it and I couldn't be happier. I know that there is no one else in the world for me. He is my everything.
Yay they made up and said they loved each other! I absolutely love Kiam, even though its characters and not even real. Don't worry, this isn't the end and I know about 99% of you won't read this but oh well. I hope you're enjoying the story a d don't forget to comment, vote and fan. Thanks :)
