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 ?


21. New Expectations

I had already texted my dad, asking him to pick up. I had some ideas on what Liam had wished that night, but I couldn't really tell.


Have you ever had that feeling when you want to talk to someone, but you just can't? That's this. Right now. Pure awkward silence was followed by the croaking of crickets. I wanted to speak up to him, to ask him what was wrong. I knew he'd probably just roll his eyes at me and huff into the air leaving a trace of his breathe. I resisted from my actions and continued to wait in silence as my dad pulled up in front of us.



"You can't give me the silent treatment forever!" I playfully screamed at him, stretching over his lap. My body fell onto his, causing me to laugh.


Even with all my raucous, he remained seated still on my couch, not even a smirk or grin developing on his face.


"Damn Liam, don't take this too seriously. Your face might freeze like that." I readjusted myself, now resting my head on his lap. We sat in silence for a few seconds before his fingers met with my stomach and I found myself in a fit of laughter. "O-ok. Liam, stop. I'll give you your phone back." He released, helping me up. I walked upstairs in defeat, grabbing his phone out of the locked box I had kept it in.


Walking back downstairs, I threw his phone at him and tossed myself onto the couch, still upset. "Aw, now don't take this too seriously, your face might freeze." He mocked. I growled at him as he turned around. I pounced on him then, causing him to be relieved from his duties of leaving. "Genevieve, I have to go. I should've left like an hour ago."


"Noooooo," I whined again, "You have to stayy. My dad isn't home and I'm gonna be alone and we can have a sleep over!" He rolled his eyes at me, before grabbing my wrist and dragging me over to his house next door.


Now was not the time for sleep overs and whining. Something was off. The car ride home was silent and awkward. My dad continuously asking questions and interrogating us on our afternoon didn't help anything. Luckily, he was home now and I was standing outside Liam's house, dropping him off.


"Thanks for helping out earlier Liam. I really appreciated it." I looked down, blushing. I kind of hit me earlier that maybe I did like Liam. Even after all these years of being just friends, I probably did have some feelings for him.


"Anytime Genevieve, but I'm sorry. I can't handle this friendship. God, after the last two years, it felt so good to talk to you again. I missed hanging out with you and hearing your laugh and all those other things we used to do. I miss being friends and all that other shit. This friendship means everything to me, but I can't be just friends with you. It's driving me insane, knowing that I have feelings for you and all you see in me is a friend. I don't know what you think you're doing, but these games you're playing with my head. I love you so much Genevieve, but until you sort yourself out. I'm done." He gave me a kiss on the cheek before walking into his house. I stood there in awe, mixed with a little confusion.


What was that all about? It wasn't like Liam to blow me off like that, but after two years of not speaking, who knows what had happened.


After thinking for a moment, I couldn't classify my emotions. I felt like crying, but I wasn't sure why. Maybe it was because of what happened at the movies and the mall, or it could've been the fact that I really wanted to kiss Liam again and give us a chance because I really did like him. I wiped my eyes, shaking my head as if I was in denial of everything.


"Not ok. Not ok. Definitely not ok." I told myself. My phone rang, disturbing the moment.

From: Arc

Um.. Hey Genny. You're probably pissed at me right now. I just wanted to say, I'm sorry. I guess at the movies, I was caught up in the moment and panicked when I saw you with Liam. Listen, Telia means nothing to me. I swear. She had asked me to see a movie with her, and you know me. I can't say no to people without feeling bad. This was more of a pity date. I don't know what I was thinking using her to make you jealous. You have every right to be mad at me. I said things without thinking about how you would feel. I'm a stupid little shit and I hope you forgive me because I hate to know I hurt you and I love you so much. Maybe we could meet up for coffee later like we used to when we first started dating? Please don't hate me.


I rolled my eyes at the message, not wanting to deal with that whole situation. The small clock on my phone read 7:32. I had nothing to do anyways and I needed someone close to talk to. I texted my dad letting him know I would be meeting Arc. He gave it an ok and I made my way down the street to the local cafe.


Now this is why I don't have any friends.
