13. I'm Back

Kristen's POV

Today's the day I get to go home! My mom is driving and I'm in the passengers seat with Erin and Cailey in the back. The boys are following behind us as well. They've been to the hospital every day since I woke up and I have no idea why. We've become friends now, they're actually really sweet. I've been told about my memory loss from hitting my head. As much as I try to remember things, it doesn't work. When we get home, I go up to my new room. I had asked to be alone, i was getting overwhelmed by everything. Supposedly, we moved here recently and this was the room I had wanted. I loved the style and sat on my bed. On my nightstand was a journal. I start on the first page and realize its mine. I started it after the divorce and the beginning is what I remember. As I get further in to the book, I remember less and less. It really frustrates me because I want to remember so badly. I hear a knock at the door and my mom walks in.

"I'm going to take everyone to lunch. Do you want to come or for me to bring something back for you?" She asks.

"I think I'll pass on this but if you could bring something back, that'd be great. Erin and Cailey know what I like, I'm just really overwhelmed right now. I'm really sorry, I feel rude not going," I say and she shakes her head.

"Don't be, honey. I think everyone will understand. I'll tell you when we get back," she says and kisses my forehead before walking out.

No one realizes how hard this is for me. They think it's just concussion symptoms, but it's more than that. I know part of it is, but another part is frustration. Every once in a while, someone will bring up something I don't remember and everyone gets quiet. I've been talked to about what happened. Supposedly, I was friends with the boys before the accident and Harry is dating Erin, while Zayn is dating Cailey. I have been told about Liam and I, but I'm pretty sure I would remember if we dated, although maybe I'm wrong. If it is true, this must be killing him for me to not remember him. Is all too much for me. Everything is my fucking fault and I'm causing others pain as well. That's when I decide to do something I haven't done in two years. I walk not my bathroom and grab the razor. I know I'll regret it eventually, but not right now. I make sure to not cut too deep so I don't wind up in the hospital, but enough to feel it. The blood starts dripping down my arm and I immediately start crying. Not from the pain, but from everything that's happened. I hear a knock on the door and someone call my name. I yell for the, to come in, thinking its my mom. The person I see is not who I'm expecting at all.

Liam's POV

Kristen's mom said to check on her every once in a while to make sure she doesn't do anything stupid. She's really overwhelmed right now and I want to make sure shes ok. I walk up to her room and knock. She yells for me to come in and I open the door. She sounds like she's in the bathroom so I walk in and gasp. Kristen is sitting on the ground with blood next to her. She's holding her arm and trying to hide the blood, but it's no use. Her face is blotchy and I know she's been crying. I grab a towel and kneel down next to her, holding the towel to her cuts. I pull her close to me as she cries.

"I can't do it, Liam. I can't live like this anymore! Do you know how frustrating it is to know that something big happened in your life and you can't remember? Everyone says its ok that I cant remember, but it's not because a part of me knows that I remember, but it won't process it. It's really hard to explain," she says sobbing.

"I know, Kristen, I know. I don't understand but I believe you. I'm not going to pretend I know whats going on because I don't. I just want you to promise me one thing," I say and she nods, "never do this again. You're too beautiful and we will work things out eventually. Please trust me on this, Kristen."

"Ok, I promise and I trust you. I'm going to get a shower, them I'll come downstairs, ok?" She says and I nod, then walk out. Normally, I would kiss her and I almost did without thinking, but then I remember we're not together right now, at least in her eyes.

I walk downstairs and turn on the TV. After about 45 minutes, she still hasn't come down so I go up and I don't hear the shower running. I'm about to knock on the door when I hear a guitar playing and her angelic voice begin to sing.

Kristen's POV

I take a pretty long shower and bandage the cuts, then walk over to my bed. I look around my room and see my guitar. It's been a while since I payed or posted a cover on YouTube, so I decide to do one. I grab the guitar and warm up, then pick a song. I pick the song By The Way by Taylor Swift because its one of my favorite songs. I wish she had put it on her album, but she's only played it live. I set the video camera up and practice a few times. When I'm ready, I turn the camera on and say hi to all my fans, then I explain what happened and why I haven't been on lately, then start playing and singing:

"I had to catch my breath

When I saw you there across the room

Holdin her hand

I'd have never guessed

That starting over would look so good on you

But here I am

Still believing there might come a day

We'll pick up where we left off

And by the way

Your eyes are dancing

I'll say the chances of that

Are getting slim

And by the way

My heart's still breaking

It's going take it a while

To love again

So many things that I forgot to say

By the way

I should've let you know

All the ways you made me feel alive

I guess it's too late

So I'll just get my coat

And make my way into this breezy night

Give you one last wave

Maybe you'll drop what you're doing

And come over here and say

I'm looking good

And by the way

Your eyes are dancing

I'll say the chances of that

Are getting slim

And by the way

My heart's still breaking

It's going take it a while

To love again

So many things that I forgot to say

By the way

You still look amazing

And I must have been crazy

To let you get away

By the way

If you ever wondered

Still got the same old number

Just in case

I still miss you

And I still love you

By the way

By the way, oh"

I finished the song and felt happier. I always loved to do these kinds of things. I turned off the camera and heard a knock on the door. The door opened and Liam poked his head in.

"Sorry to bother you, but I wanted to make sure you were ok. You never came downstairs," he says. Wow, he really does care about me.

"Oh, I'm sorry. I totally got side tracked from that. Yah I'm fine, just recording. I checked my computer to see it had uploaded. Liam looks over my shoulder and saw it.

"Would you mind if we watched some of these? I'd really love to hear them," he says and I nod. We go through pretty much every song and Liam looks really interested. When we play the last video, which is the one I just recorded, he looks at me.

"That was amazing! Would you be able to play another one for me. We can try a duet together if you want," he says and I feel butterflies in my stomach for some reason.

"That sounds great. What song do you want to do?" I ask him and he types something in. He picks Payphone by Maroon 5 and I practice the chords, then we set up the camera and start:

"Both:

I'm at a payphone trying to call home

All of my change I spent on you

Where have the times gone

Baby it's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two?

Kristen:

Yeah, I, I know it's hard to remember

The people we used to be

It's even harder to picture

That you're not here next to me

Liam:

You say it's too late to make it

But is it too late to try?

And in our time that you wasted

All of our bridges burned down

Both:

I've wasted my nights

You turned out the lights

Now I'm paralyzed

Still stuck in that time when we called it love

But even the sun sets in paradise

Both:

I'm at a payphone trying to call home

All of my change I spent on you

Where have the times gone

Baby it's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two?

If happy ever after did exist

I would still be holding you like this

All those fairytales are full of it

One more stupid love song I'll be sick

Liam:

You turned your back on tomorrow

Cause you forgot yesterday

I gave you my love to borrow

But you just gave it away

Kristen:

You can't expect me to be fine

I don't expect you to care

I know I've said it before

But all of our bridges burned down

Both:

I've wasted my nights

You turned out the lights

Now I'm paralyzed

Still stuck in that time when we called it love

But even the sun sets in paradise

Both:

I'm at a payphone trying to call home

All of my change I spent on you

Where have the times gone

Baby it's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two?

If happy ever after did exist

I would still be holding you like this

All those fairytales are full of it

One more stupid love song I'll be sick

Now I'm at payphone

Both:

I'm at a payphone trying to call home

All of my change I spent on you

Where have the times gone

Baby it's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two?

If happy ever after did exist

I would still be holding you like this

All those fairytales are full of it

One more stupid love song I'll be sick

Liam:

Now I'm at a payphone

We finished the cover and uploaded it. I can't deny that I felt something there. We were in perfect harmony. He looked at me and I could see the same thing in his eyes.

"Kristen, I know you haven't known me for long and this may seem weird and a really bad time, but will you be my girlfriend?" He asked and I'm shocked at first but then I speak up.

"Of course! And I want you to know that I may not remember it right now, but I do believe you that we were dating before, I really do and thank you for not giving up on me," I say and he smiles.

"I could never give up on you, ever." He says and I blush. "Do you want to make it official? I know it's really early, but I do really believe that you're the one and I want the whole world to know," I just nod my head.

He's on his phone so I decide to go on twitter to post the link. I log on and see a ton of notifications, but one sticks out and it's recent. Liam posted the link and tagged me. I read the tweet:

"@Real_Liam_Payne: check out my gorgeous girlfriend and I's cover of Payphone by Maroon 5. @kristenblank13 you are so strong and talented, beautiful http://youtu.be/AgNtlMZtvZk"

I responded by saying:

"@kristenblank13: couldn't have done it without you babe, thanks for not giving up on me and your voice is amazing. Lets do another one soon @Real_Liam_Payne"

It went back and forth for a while saying things like:

"@Real_Liam_Payne: just tell me when you want to do another. Remember, I'm sitting right next to you ;) xxx @kristenblank13"

"@kristenblank13 your hilarious Liam, note the sarcasm. How about a follow spree or #askliam for your fans? @Real_Liam_Payne"

"@Real_Liam_Payne: sounds good to me! Tweet #askliam with a question!"

Questions started coming in like crazy:

"@Daisy_Payne: are you and @kristenblank13 dating?! #askliam"

"@Real_Liam_Payne: yes we are @Daisy_Payne"

"@mandypayne17: why are you dating her? She's a bitch and a horrible singer #askliam"

"@Real_Liam_Payne: you're just jealous of her. She's not a bitch and she has an amazing voice @mandypayne17"

A lot of it was hate towards me. One fan asked for a pic of us so he posted one. He also sent out a tweet saying what happened since people were asking what the cut on my head was and the cast.

"@Real_Liam_Payne: for all of you asking, the cut on Kristen's head and the cast are from a riding accident. Three months ago, I went to her horse show and she fell off while riding. She banged her head and was in a coma for three months. She broke an arm and a few ribs from the horse landing on her and got a concussion from hitting her head. The doctors didn't think she was going to make it, but she did. She lost her memory and me and the lads, along with all her friends and family are helping her through it right now. I'd really appreciate not sending hate to her because its already really hard for her. @kristenblank13 stay strong xxx"

A lot of the tweets after that was sympathy and stuff so I logged off. I got up and laid down next to Liam, cuddling close. He put his arm around me and pulled me closer. It may seem weird to do this after only knowing him for a few weeks, but it doesn't feel weird. There's something so familiar and comfortable about him. I checked YouTube to se that we had over a million views in a little over an hour. Everyone loved the collab with Liam. I fell asleep in his arms, feeling safe and happy.
