A Loss For Words

Peyton Skies has been deaf since birth. She only communicates through sign language or writing. So when the new student, Niall Horan, tries to talk to her, she can't exactly hear him.


8. 8

       {Harry's POV}

              Liam has been acting really. . . strange around me lately. Whenever I joke with him, he blushes a really deep crimson. Whenever I touch him, he jumps and I get a tingly feeling, a feeling I always get when touching Liam, but it's heightened.

             It's weird really, Liam's avoiding me in all honesty. All he does is talk to Peyton anymore, which I don't blame her for. I don't think she knows what's happening, but I can't help but to feel hurt by it. Liam and I we're pretty close, not as close as me and Peyton, but close enough to where he knows my deepest secrets.

              When me, Peyton, Niall, Liam, and Zayn hang out, Liam refuses to look at me or even talk to me. It used to be that he would try to talk to me, but know he just looks pained when he even looks at me.

              I don't know why he's treating me like this. I thought about asking Peyton if she knows anything, but I don't think she would tell me even if she knew. Peyton's the type of person who won't tell  anybody's secrets if you ask her not no too. It's a blessing and a curse, really.

          I guess I'll just have to ma up and ask him about it.



          As the last bell rang through the classroom, I gathered up my notebook and pens and put it into my bag, slinging it over my shoulder and sprinting out of the room, down the halls and out of the building. I waited until I saw Peyton walking outside of the building with Niall and Zayn tagging along behind her. 

      Sill no sign of Liam.

      As Peyton, Niall, and Zayn got closer, I could hear Niall and Zayn's discussion about Mr. Tomlinson. Peyton took a seat next to me on the bench I had sat on while waiting for the rest of the gang. I smiled at her and then turned back to Niall and Zayn, listening to Zayn comment about Mr. Tomlinson's ass.

     I scoffed at him, rolling my eyes at him. Zayn laughed, nudging my shoulder. "What's with you?"

     I shrugged, "Nothing."

     Niall scoffed at me, "C'mon mate. Seriously, what's bugging you?"

     I sighed, "Have you guys noticed how strange Liam has been acting? He's avoiding me."

     Niall sighed, "Yeah. I have noticed that. What's with him?"

     I shrugged as Niall turned to Peyton signing out slowly, 'Do you know why Liam is avoiding H-A-R-R-Y?' Since Niall didn't know my sign, he had to spell out my name.

     Peyton shrugged, avoiding eye contact with all of us, meaning that she knew something. I sighed, turning back to Zayn, "I don't know what I did wrong."

     "Here's your chance to ask him." Niall said, pointing toward the direction of the school. I looked to were he pointed at seeing Liam walk out the door, heading in our direction.

     "Hey guys." He said as he reached us, avoiding looking at me. I sighed, looking away from Liam, losing hope that he would actually talk to me.

     Small 'Hey's and Hi's were mumbled as Peyton stood up, turning away from us to sign at Liam. I sighed again, wanting a chance to talk to Li alone, wanting to know why he's annoying me.

     We start walking towards the parking lot, not talking as we all head to the park by Peyton and Liam's flat.



     As me and Peyton sat on the swings with everyone surrounding us, Niall on the ground next to Liam ands Zayn on his other side, I looked around at the trees, seeing a flock of birds fly out of it a couple seconds later.

    I sighed, something that I seem to be doing a lot, as I looked at the ground.

      "What's wrong Haz?" Niall asked, turning to me, already knowing what was bugging me so bad.

      My eyes flickered to Liam, seeing him look down to avoid my gaze. "Nothing."

      Niall nodded, seemingly forgetting about it as he turned to Peyton, having a very slow signing conversation.

    I turned to Liam, deciding now would be a good time to talk to him, "Can I talk to you?"

    Liam looked up nodding at me and standing up, probably knowing I wanted to talk alone.

     We walked over to the tree the birds had flew out of, me leaning on it and Liam standing in front of me. "Why. . ." I took a deep breath, "Why are you avoiding me, Li? What did I do to make you hate me?"

     He was silent for a moment, staring off at Peyton and the boys, who were looking back at us, Peyton a confused look on her pale face, probably not knowing what was going on.

    "It's not you." He replied.

     I scoffed, "That's it?! 'It's not you?' What the hell Liam? What did I do wrong to make you not even look me in the eyes? What-"

    I was cut off. At first I didn't know what by, but then I felt warm lips moving against mine. Liam was kissing me, that was what had cut me off. What? Liam was kissing me?

     He moved his arms to my waist, pulling me closer as my arms went around his neck. He nudged his lips against mine, making lose the thought of Liam avoiding me, as all I could think about was the fact that Liam was kissing me. I can't believe it. The Liam I have had a crush on since year eight, was kissing me.

     He nudged his lips against mine again, breaking me from my thoughts as I started kissing him back. Liam pushed me back against the tree, licking my lower lip as a sign that he wanted the kiss to go even deeper.

     I could hear the faint laughter and 'Get in their mate!' from Niall and Zayn as me and Liam continued to snog the life out of each other.

     I didn't know how long it had been since we had started kissing, seconds even minutes. Realization must have dawned on him, as he pulled back and gasped.

     Four words came out of his mouth. Four words I never thought Liam Payne would ever say to me. The four words I never expected to hear from him.

    "That was a mistake."
