Hidden Bright Side {Liam Payne}

Liam was the most popular kid in school, as well as the meanest. When he is hit with the reality stick, he decides to change his ways and become a.. Er- Geek. Things take a bad turn for him and he becomes the most bullied kid in school. Will he survive his new life or will he go back to the old ?


22. Division of Three

The scent of caramel and bitter coffee hit my nose. The small cafe was pretty empty considering it was a Thursday evening. The customers who usually spent their money here were most likely at home preparing for another day of school before the weekend hit. 


"Genny, hi! I didn't think you would come." Arch's voice rang eagerly from the opposite side of the room.  He was sitting in the booth that became known as ours. It was always empty on Thursdays, reserved for us. His sister was the assistant manager here so it was easy for him to get the opportunity of nabbing this specific spot. 


He waved over at me, offering me the seat next to his, rather than from across. "I got you a hazelnut macchiato, your favorite during this time of year." He grabbed the drink from across the table and placed it in between my palms. I gave out a simple thank you, inhaling the fumes of the Nutella-like drink as the room became silent again; not including the noises coming from the smoothie machines and static-radio noises coming from the work room. "Um.. So thanks for coming to meet me." He spoke again, this time wrapping an around my shoulder. 


I could feel the tension between us. He probably found this moment as awkward as I did. Rather than his 'slick' way of trying to get me to sit closer to him, he had almost spilt his drink and ended up getting his watch in my hair. 


After the weird encounter, he continued speaking again. "I know you probably read what I'm going to say, considering the fact you're here right now, but I just wanted to apologize again. I'm an idiot. I'm a fucking idiot who doesn't know how to handle jealousy. This is me, trying to apologize to you because once again I was stupid, I don't care if you never want to go out with me again, let alone speak to me. All I want to know is that we're ok and that you don't completely hate me for being a watt-bag and-"


"Archades. Listen very carefully." I turned my body, adjusting his head so he was directly facing mine. My hands remained on his face. He nodded as I continued. "Shut. Up." I gave him face and squeeze and laugh. "I'm here, alright? Stop your babbling. Obviously, I'm still pissed at you for going out with another girl and not telling you. However, I shouldn't have gone out with Liam without telling you. So sorry about that. I shouldn't have kissed him. I myself over reacted, but you know I'm weird and can't handle pressure. Are we cool?" 


I let go of his face, being embraced in a hug. "We're cool." I could feel him smile through his cheeks as he pressed the side of his face against mine. "So is it ok if we call off the break up?" 


I mentally sighed and reluctantly nodded. Things weren't going to get better with me and Liam anytime soon. I knew Arch and I weren't working out, but I did love him, at one point. Maybe some drama was what our relationship needed. I'm sure I was going to regret this though. I couldn't help but feel guilty. Saying yes to Arch when I know I have some type of feelings for Liam. I shook the thought out of my head. 

My phone buzzed, giving me a bit of the chills. I put my coffee down and stood up so I could pull out my phone. Without sitting down, I read the text. 



From: Liammmm

We need to talk. 


My eyes widened at the message. There was no context behind it which is what concerned me. 


I tucked the phone back into my pocket. I bent over the table, giving Arch a kiss on the cheek."It was nice getting to relive our past of sitting at the coffee shop alone and at peace. It feels just like how we used to. Thanks again Arch. I gotta go, my dad is worried. Love you." 


Before he could say a word, I had skipped out the shop and ran down the street. 


"Dad! I'm home!" I screamed, running up the stairs. I rolled into my room and opened my window. Liam's window was right across from mine. I could see him in his room. The lights were on and his curtains weren't closed. "Liam!" I yelled out, hoping he would hear me. I was pretty sure this entire half in the neighborhood could. 


He was oblivious to my call. His head moved around. It was one of those moments where you think someone was calling you, but no one was around and you couldn't tell if someone was actually calling you or if you were going crazy. I rolled my eyes and called out his name again. 


I could see him scratch his head in curiosity. Within a moment's notice, he whipped his head towards the window. I waved, hoping he would notice. 


Liam waved back with a shy smile. He put down his guitar and opened his window, peaking his head out. "Liam!" I shouted again.


"Genevieve, I heard you the first two times. Keep your voice down! Why didn't you just text me?" 


"Texting is over rated! What's up?" 


"Listen, I'm sorry for bursting at you like that earlier. I'm stressed out." 


"About what?" I questioned as if I didn't know.


"Don't pretend you don't know. I'm stressed about us. Starting tomorrow, you and I are going to work things out. Since you aren't with Archades anymore, I want to be given a chance, if that's ok with you of course. Now, before you say something, I have to beat you to it. I'm getting yelled at for yelling. I'll talk to you tomorrow morning. I'll walk you to school so don't leave without me. Goodnight Genevieve!" 


I had let out the longest sigh of the night and fell back onto my bed. My hand scrambled for the closing pillow. I screamed into it in frustration. Why? Why. Why?
