At First Glance

At first glance he looked like the boy who sat in the back of the class hiding from the world. At first glance you wouldn't know that he had a hard life. You could tell he had people who loved him, but only a few really knew him. That's because they were there from the start, they were there when he built his walls. But I wasn't, most of the time his walls would turn people away, but they drew me closer, closer to Liam Payne.


5. Breaking Walls

He lead me upstairs into the room across from his. He opened the door and led me in. It was the room of a teenage boy. Unlike Liam's this one was completely disorganized. 

"Okay when I was 15, I had an older brother... Ray. He was my best friend. He taught me how to fight, to fix cars, even how to pick up girls. He was every boys dream brother. Well one night I wanted to go to a party, thinking I could handle it. I asked my mum and dad which they said no. My dad just stormed off while my mum told me to never ask again. Now that I think about it, there was fear in her voice. But being the moody teenager that I was I just stormed off to my room. That's when I heard my dad and brother fighting. My dad was saying things like how dare you corrupt my son, and I'm ashamed to be your father. My brother was yelling back, telling him how I should be allowed to go out have a life and make mistakes. So I did...

"I snuck out of the house that night and went to the party. At about 3AM I was totally drunk. I only have one kidney and I drank to much. I was scared that if I called my parents they would be made so I called Ray. I was so scared but Ray managed to calm me down. He asked me if I finally had sex, or who I did it with, if I got more than one that night. Each question took my mind off the situation. Well when he picked me up we had to go to the hospital. We drove a few blocks and I noticed a car following us. Ray did to. He sped up and the car sped up. Then came a red light. He stopped and the guys behind us got out and pulled us out of the car. They had a gun to my head and my brothers. I sobered up quickly. I remember my brother saying they could take the car, the money everything but to just leave me alone. Even with a gun to his head he still protected me. I remember him trying to calm me down, that I needed to relax that everything was gonna be fine." He told me. He had his head down. His hands were shaking. I took them in mine and held them tightly.

"Liam, shh you don't have to." I told him. He shook his head. 

"I want to. They just laughed at my brother. They held him back as they knocked me down, kicked and punched me. Beat me with a tire iron. And when they put the gun to my head he screamed and cried for them to kill him, to shoot him, to let me live. And just like that he was dead. They shot him right before my eyes. If I didn't go to that party he would have lived, he would have had a wife, and kids. I know it. He would have been happy. When I got home from the hospital that's when I found out about the abuse that Ray had sheltered me from. My dad was so angry, angry that I gave up my brothers life for my own. He screamed that it should be me that was 6ft under not Ray. When I started to tear up he hit me. Told me I didn't deserve to cry. I've learnt that the more I beg him, ask him to stop the worse it gets. All I have to do is obey his rules and I won't end up lying on the floor. You know I grew up fast. Real fast, reality hit me like a train, a fucking bitch of a train." He said, I noticed a few tears glide down his face. I cupped his face with my hands. Wiping away any tears. 

"No Liam. Reality is this, right here right now. This is how life is supposed to be like. Cry, scream, sob I don't care. I'm here, right in front of you. Just let it out." I whispered. Almost as I finished he crumpled to the floor sobbing. I knelt down and held him tightly. He cried for his brother to come back. For it to be him. I felt a few tears run down my face. I had done it, he had let me into his life and I had fallen for him. It took me a week but I was completely in love with him
