1. Wishing For The Past

-Five Years Later-

The best time to cry is at night when the lights are out and no one can hear your despondent cries just begging for a way out. Its around two thirty in the morning but by now the time doesn't matter. I clutch my warm cup of tea in my hands and yet my fingers feel like ice. Even in the warm July air, every part of me feels cold. Dried mascara smudged my cheeks from the night before and I couldn't help but think back to when everything was perfect. When we were a perfect little family. Liam, Kaitlyn and I. I licked my lips softly as I pulled my legs closer to my body and looked around the kitchen. Broken glass still sat on the floor in the corner and dinner still sat in the pan on the stove, barely even touched. I let out a sigh, remembering the past.

"Mummy?" I heard a soft voice from behind me say.

I turned around and saw my four year old daughter standing in the doorway holding her stuffed punk bunny by its ear.

"Mummy why are you crying?"

I set my cup down on the table and picked her up and took her into my lap.

"What are you doing up baby?" I asked her.

She shook her head tiredly. "My question first."

"Mummy's just tired. Thats all." I sighed. "Now what are you doing up?"

"I can't sleep." She told me.

"Why is that?" I asked her.

"I had a bad dream." She yawned.

"About what baby?" I asked.

"That you and daddy broke up." She told me, a sad expression filled her small brown eyes.

I hugged her tighter. "Daddy and I aren't going to break up. We're just going through a rough time right now."

"Why do you and daddy fight?" She asked softly.

"I don't know baby. Daddy isn't always himself when he comes home." I sighed.

The room was silent for a moment and I could hear her slow, soft breathing.

"Mummy?" She asked.

"Hm?"

"Do you and daddy still love each other?" She asked.

I looked down at her. "Of course we do baby. I'll always love your daddy."

"Good." She mumbled tiredly.

"C'mon, lets get you to bed." I told her.

I held her in my arms and made my way up the stairs. As soon as I reached her room I walked in and set her in her on her bed. I brought the covers back over her and she brought them up to her chin. I kissed her forehead softly.

"Don't worry about daddy and I. We'll be fine." I told her. "Goodnight baby."

"Goodnight mummy." She yawned.

I walked back out of her room and walked downstairs into the kitchen. I looked around and remembered the broken glass in the corner.  I sighed and grabbed the dustpan and broom out of the closet and swept it up. I dumped the broken glass into the trash and put the dustpan and broom back. I walked over to the stove and put the rest of the dinner into a container and put it into the fridge. I walked out of the kitchen, turning the light off behind me. As I walked upstairs family pictures that were hung on the wall glared back at me. It was all just a reminder that times have changed. I walked into mine and Liam's room and found him still in the position I had left him in. I slowly slipped back into bed and just lay there a moment. Nothing would ever be the same.

I sat in the kitchen glaring at the clock as another hour passed. Another hour that Liam wasn't home. Dinner had passed hours ago and by now it was eight o clock. This was frequent of course, he was hardly ever on time for dinner. I heard the front door open and close and I stood up and walked into the foyer. 

"Where were you?!" I asked angrily.

I had let it go the past few times but its the fourth time this week. I couldn't take it anymore.

"Out." He muttered.

"Yeah I get that. Where?!" I asked harshly.

"I was out! Out doing my job!" He yelled.

"Oh is getting drunk doing your job?!" I yelled.

"Fuck Elizabeth! Just let it go!" He yelled.

"No! I will not let it go! Kaitlyn and I waited for an hour for you to come home! You're never here! She's always wondering where you are and you've never here!" I yelled back.

He stared at me coldly. "Don't you dare bring our daughter into this!"

"Its not my fault her father is a complete asshole most of the time." I spat.

I turned on my heel and walked back to the kitchen.

"Don't you dare walk away from me!" He yelled.

"Watch me!" I yelled back.

He followed me into the kitchen where he stood angrily.

"Cut the crap." He spat.

"You cut the crap! Why don't you tell me what you really do after you go to the recording studio?! Because I know for a fact that you don't spend twelve hours a day there!"

He slammed his fist on the table and tossed the glass that was on the table into the corner causing me to jump a little.

"It doesn't matter!" He seethed.

"Hell yes it does matter! I'm your wife Liam! Not some girl you can just toss around like a ball!" I yelled.

"Then quit acting like a b-"

We heard a sniffle from the doorway and saw Kaitlyn standing there, tears in her eyes. My heart dropped. I pushed past Liam, giving him a dirty look as I passed. I picked up Kaitlyn and brought her upstairs to her room.

"C'mon, lets get you back to bed." I whispered.

She pulled the covers up to her shoulders and sat up.

"Why are you and daddy yelling?" She asked.

"We had a disagreement. Thats all." I told her softly.

"Is daddy going to read me a bedtime story?" She asked.

I shook my head. "No baby. I'll read you one though."

She laid down and pointed to a book on the table beside her bed. I sat down on the edge of her bed and took the book into my hands. I opened it to the marked page and began to read about the princess and her prince. Soon Katilyn was asleep and I set the book on the table. I kissed her forehead and stood up.

"Goodnight Katie." I whispered softly.

I walked out of the room, turning off the lights behind me. I walked into mine and Liam's room and could hear him in the bathroom. I silently changed out of my clothes and slipped an oversized shirt on. I climbed into the bed and turned my table light off. I lay there my eyes still wide open. The door to the bathroom opened and Liam walked out. He turned his light off and slipped into the bed next to me. I could feel the tears in my eyes as all the emotion came out. I just prayed he and I wouldn't end up like Louis and Eleanor. Though I would never leave him. Even when we fought, deep down I know he's still the Liam I married five years ago.
