Over Again

It's been a year, to this date.One full year since I had to say good bye to my best friends,fiance,and daughter. As far as anyone can tell by looking at me I'm good but on the inside, I'm just empty.


4. Home

I shouldn't have said that. Was the first thing I thought. I just sighed and took a few steps back until my back was against the wall and sunk down. I rested my forehead against my knees and wrapped my arms around my legs. It was all too much. 

It's not like I was completely over and forgotten what all had happened to me. I was more coming to terms with it. I had a new apartment,job,and boyfriend...just a new life. And I was happy with it...at least that's what I kept telling myself.And then all of the sudden I get reunited with the people I never thought I'd see or even talk to again. I know a part of me wanted so badly just have things go back to the way they were before that night but I knew it wouldn't be that easy. There would be question upon question about where I even went in the first place and tons of criticism about why I left Liam alone to raise Avia by himself.

I heard Liam come sit next to me against the wall and let out a big sigh. 

"I've thought of this moment a million times before in my head,"Liam admitted. I turned my head to the side to look at him. He was just staring,like into a memory,at the wall in front of him. "I thought of it like a movie,ya know? Like we'd see each other from far way  and then you'd come running into my arms. Then, I'd give you a kiss on the cheek because that's your favorite and then-"

"Liam,"I said quietly, interrupting him and causing him to turn his head to look at me,"I should...I need t-to go,"I stammered while standing up and turning to leave,"but I'll be back."

I slowly walked to my apartment trying to take in everything that just happened. But the best part of all that happened was I finally didn't feel like this huge chunk of me was missing. I went to unlock my door but it was already unlocked,Daniel was probably over.I walked in setting my keys on the counter.

"Babe?"I called out when I didn't see Daniel anywhere. I suddenly felt hands on my waist which caused me to jump and let out a little yell. I turned and so those hazel eyes staring at me with a smirk on his face. Daniel's dirty blonde hair was cut short and,since he just got off work,he was wearing his typical waiter uniform,"You scared me,"I whined to him.

"Oh yeah?"he asked while raising an eyebrow,"I'll make it better."

Daniel pressed his lips to mine as I placed my arms around his neck. He pushed me against the wall still kissing me while placing his hands on my hips. Yeah,his kissee were nice but Liam's...Liam's were,literally,perfect every time like he could read my mind. I snapped myself out of thinking about Liam. Daniel kissed down my neck and found my sweet spot. I sighed and gripped his hair signaling for him not to stop. 

"Mmmm,"I hummed,"Liam,"I moaned and quickly had my eyes shoot open and body just freeze.Fuck me. 

Daniel stopped kissing me and slowly lifted his head to look at me.

"Liam??!"he asked in a very loud voice.

I stood frozen against the wall. Not really knowing what to do or say. Daniel's eyes turned dark as his 6'3'' figure stood over me. My heart was racing out of pure fear. It's not like Daniel was a very aggressive person but he does have a pretty bad temper. 

"Who the hell Liam?"Daniel spat while gripping onto my wrist quite harshly. 

"He-he's no one,"I stuttered. 

"Bullshit. Tell me who he is,Tess. Are you fucking cheating on me?" Daniel yelled while holding tighter to my wrists.

"You're hurting me! Stop it"I shouted back at him. 

"Don't fucking talk to me like that,"Daniel growled while releasing one of his hands from my wrist and slapping me across the face. 

He hit me so hard it cause my whole head to turn. Before I could even say anything he was out of the door. I clutched my stinging cheek as tears rushed down my face. Today being the world wind off emotion that it was I just broke down. I stumbled into my room and stripped out of my uncomfortable clothes and into Victoria Secret yoga pants and the nearest sweatshirt, which so happened to be Liam's that I've kept. I sighed as I pulled it over myself. I continued to cry as I made my over to the couch and curled up in a ball and went to sleep.  

Liam's POV

9:30 pm, I could have sworn Tess would be back earlier, especially to see Avia who was now sleeping. I was worried. I texted Niall asking for her address so I could check up on her. He gave it to me instantly and offered to watch Avia. I quickly grabbed Avia and my keys and rushed out of the door. 

It was only a 15 to her apartment and I softly knocked on the door. But no answer. I tried again and called her name. I twisted the door knob and found it was unlocked. I slowly walked in and shut the door behind me and locked it. I looked around and walked to where the TV was and looked down to see Tess curled up and sleeping on the couch. I smiled a little when I noticed she was wearing  my sweatshirt. I noticed something on her cheek so I quietly kneeled beside her to see what it was. I leaned close and noticed it was a bruise. I lightly skimmed it with my finger and Tess's light eyes met mine. 

"What happened?"I asked while running my finger along the mark. I noticed her eyes were bloodshot and puffy, probably from crying. 

"Nothing"she mumbled sleepily. Her eyes look heavy and she just looked...exhausted. 

Just then there was a big banging on the door. 

"Tess!"a deep voice yelled,"open the door." 

Tess quickly shot up and stood up from the couch. Her eyes looked frantic and worried as she grabbed my hand and dragged me down the hallway. She pushed me into what looked like a bathroom.

"Stay here,"she whispered,"and don't move." I didn't have time to ask her what was going on, she just shut the door.

Tess's POV

I went to answer the door slowly. I peaked around and saw Daniel standing there looking very drunk and very angry.

"What?"I bluntly asked him,still not opening the door.

"Aren't you going to let me in?"Daniel slurred while forcing the door open causing me to stumble backwards. 

I backed further away from him,"go home,Daniel. It's over."

His eyes turned dark with anger as he stalked towards me. My back pressed against the wall as he got closer and closer. 

"What the fuck do you mean over?! It's only over when I say it's over,"Daniel growled while roughly grabbing my face with is hand. I didn't yell or scream because I knew Liam would come out and I didn't want Daniel to know he was here or else he'd seriously hurt Liam. 

Daniel violently pushed his lips onto mine. I tired to force him off but he was holding tightly to me,pinning me against the wall. He's hands started to grip my waist over the sweatshirt. Daniel finally pulls away, letting me finally breath. 

"Who's is this?"Daniel asks while grabbing the sweater with his hands from either side of my waist.

"I-It's..I...just,"I have no idea what to even say. Daniel's eyes are terrifying. 

"It's his isn't it,"Daniel yelled will pulling me close to him with the sweatshirt,"he's here." 

Daniel pushed past me making his way down the hallway. He made his way straight towards the bathroom door. I quickly ran to step in front of him blocking the door.I won't let him touch Liam, I can't.

"MOVE!"Daniel yelled but I just stayed put. He grabbed onto my arm and slammed me against the wall causing my head to hit against it. 

Daniel quickly opened the door only to be met by Liam's fist. Daniel instantly steps backwards against the wall clutching his nose. Liam quickly takes Daniel's shirt and slams him even more against the wall.

"Don't.You.Fucking.Dare.Touch.Her,"Liam yelled in his face. I see Liam clench his fists again and is about to hit Daniel again. I rush in front of him, placing my hands on his chest.

"Liam,no...stop,"I plead to him in between cries. His eyes flash from Daniel to me and his eyes soften and he relaxes. 

"Just leave,"I say while turing around and facing Daniel. 

He's still clutching his nose as he starts to walk away. As soon as he closes the door I let out a body racking sob. Liam is quickly in front of me with his arms around me and telling to calm me down.My crying becomes more of a whimper than a sob as a few moments pass. He leads me into my room and pulls back my duvet and settles me into it. He leans down to kiss my forehead and tell me good night and he'll come back tomorrow. 

I reach out of his hand and he faces me again,"stay,"I demand/ask with pleading eyes. 

Liam automatically just kicks off his shoes and walks over to the other side of the bed. When he gets all settled in I scoot over to his side. Liam wraps his arm around my waist and I place my head on his chest,right above his heart. I shut my eyes finally feel at home.
