Before me and Liam went to sit with Louis and Zayn, we decide to get a pretzel and a drink to share.
After we get it, we walk back to the table Louis and Zayn are sitting. As we're walking, Liam has his arm around my waist and he is holding me close. As I look up at Liam, I smile but then out of the corner of my eye, I see a person looking at me. I look towards the person who is looking at me. Once I turn to look at them, I get fear in my eyes and they smile. It's Connor.
I look away and Liam notices my change in mood. Once we get to the table, I stare into space and think to myself.
I'm brought back to reality when Liam starts slightly kissing up my arm. I turn my head towards him and look at him. I smile and ask "What are you doing?"
Liam looks up at me with a worried face. He says "We tried calling your name but you didn't answer or look at us so I started kissing you to get your attention."
I blink my eyes and say "Oh, I'm-I'm sorry."
Liam looks at me and says "It's okay, Molly. It just seemed like you lost it back there. What happened?"
I look at Zayn and he looks back at me and gives me a sympathetic look.
I sigh and say "Can you tell him?"
Liam looks at Zayn confused as Zayn nods.
Zayn begins to tell Liam what happened and how I got the mark.
As Zayn tells Liam and Louis listens, I look down and play with my fingers. Once Zayn is done, I say "That's why I sort of was out of it back there."
Liam puts his hands on my hips and lifts me from my chair to on his lap. Once I am comfortable, he wraps his arms around my waist and I wrap my arms loosely around his shoulders.
Liam looks up at me and says "I'm so sorry baby." He pauses and opens his mouth like he wants to say something but then he closes his mouth.
I look at him confused and ask "What? What were you going to say?"
Liam looks at Louis and they make eye contact. Louis speaks up and says "Abby told us something and I think Liam just wants to hear your side of it."
I look at Liam and ask "What did Abby say?"
Liam sighs and says "Abby told me and the boys about your relationship with Connor when you were walking around with Zayn."
I cover my mouth and try not to cry then walk away. I hear Zayn ask "What did Abby tell you about Connor?"
I walk farther away so I can't hear them. I walk over to a railing and put my hands on it and try to catch my breath. I notice someone come up behind me and wrap their arms around my waist. I tense up and squeeze the railing tighter.
I relax when I hear the person say "It's okay, Molly. It's only me." I notice by the voice that it's Louis. Liam must still be telling Zayn about what Abby told him.
I let go of the railing and turn towards Louis. I look up at him and he looks back at me sadly. He takes my left arm and lifts up my sleeves. Once he does, he can instantly see my scars. Louis traces his fingers over the scars. I hear him quietly say "I guess it was true then." mostly saying it to confirm it to himself.
I slowly take my arm out of his grip and pull my sleeve back down. I look up at Louis and see sadness in his eyes.
I open up my arms and wrap them around Louis' waist. I lay my head on his chest and just stand there hugging him. Louis wraps is arms around me and rests his chin on my head. He rubs my back with his hand and he quietly say "I am so sorry Molly. You didn't deserve to go through that. That should have never happened to you."
I pull my head back from him and look up at his face. "Thank you." I quietly say then lean up and kiss him on the cheek. I stand regularly on my feet again then I continue to hug him.
As we're hugging, Liam and Zayn come over by us. Zayn clears his throat and me and Louis pull away from each other. I let go of Louis and stand by myself.
I look at Zayn and see some tears down his face. My face falls and I walk over to him and wrap my arms around his waist. Zayn wraps his arms around me and he rests his forehead on my shoulder. He muffles and says "I am so sorry Molly. I am so so sorry."
I pull back from him and look up at his face. As his arms are still wrapped around me, I take my hands and wipe his tears.
I smile and say "It's okay. It's all over now. I am not letting Connor do that to me again." I feel Zayn tense as he hears that name. I continue and say "I am not leaving you guys. I am not leaving Liam. You guys and him...all of you guys are the best things in my life. I am so happy you guys are in my life."
Zayn smiles and hugs me again. Then I feel Louis wrap his arms around us. I smile and pull my head up. I smile up at them and say "Thank you guys. I am so glad you guys are here for me."
Louis and Zayn smile then let go of me. I turn around and look at Liam. I notice he has tears in his eyes. I walk up to him and stand in front of him. I look down at his hands and take them in my hands. I intertwine our fingers and then look back up at him.
Liam takes one of his hands and cups my face. He rubs my cheek with his thumb and he slowly leans down and puts his lips on mine. As we kiss, I take my hands and wrap them around his neck. I slowly start running his hair through my fingers. As our lips move in sync, Liam runs his hands around my waist and he slowly starts rubbing my lower back. Suddenly, I feel wetness on my cheeks. I notice the wetness is from his tears that escaped my eyes.
I pull back from him and look up at his face. I take my hands and put them up to his face. I take my thumbs and rub the tears away. As he keeps his hands around my waist, I put my hands on his chest. I look up at him and say "Please don't cry. It's all over with and I am never going back to him again. The guy I want is right here in front of me with his arms around me. Please don't worry about it okay?"
Liam nods and says "I want to see something first though."
I nod my head and ask "What do you want to see?"
Liam looks at me seriously and says "Your scars."
I look down and say "Ob."
I lift up my arm and Liam holds my wrist in his hand. He pulls up my sleeve and see all my scars. He traces his fingers over the scars and he can tell which ones are the deep ones. He leans down and lifts my wrist up to his mouth. He singly presses a light kiss to each scar.
I look down and say "Thats not the only place with scars." hoping he didn't hear me. But I was wrong. Once I say that, Liam's head snaps up to look at me. He finishes kissing each scar on my arm, then stands back up straight and makes our chests connect. Liam leans down to my ear and says "I'll kiss those later." then he wraps his arms around me again and he hugs me.
