Safe And Sound (Triquel to Red)

"Elizabeth Ashton was more that just a girl to me. She was my best friend, she was the love of my life, she was my light. Since the day I met her when we were 5 years old there hasn't been a single day that I didn't love her. Without her, I wouldn't be the man I am today. She taught me so many things. She taught me to never give up on myself and to never let anyone tell me who I am, who I want to be. She taught me to believe in myself even when no one else did. Through the 15 years that I knew her, just the thought of her made me smile. Now I can't help but look back on all of the memories we made. The pillow fights, the sleep overs, the ghost stories. She made me happier than anyone else ever could. She put a smile on my face even when I was on the verge of tears and she always knew what to say. So much of the world knows Elizabeth Ashton as the girl who broke free from her past and created a future...


41. Confrontations

***Beth's POV***

-1 week later-

We walked into the dressing room after sound check, no words spoken. Harry took a seat in the styling chair and the rest of us sat down on the couches. I sat as far away from Liam as I could and pulled out my phone. As I scrolled through my phone I avoided eye contact with everyone in the room. Its like I couldn't even look at one of the other boys without him accusing me of cheating. A week. He and I hadn't spoken in a week. Not directly at least. Each time our eyes met we would send each other scowls. Not the behavior of a happy couple huh?

"So whats up with all of you today? You seem more out of it today than yesterday." Lou informed us.

"Its nothing." Harry sighed.

"Harry, i've known you boys how long? Almost six years. Its not nothing. Now spill." She told us.

Harry and I made eye contact through the mirror. "Trust issues. Some of us are not getting along very well while two people are at each others throats."

And no, he didn't mean Liam and I. I glanced over at Liam and Louis who were sending each other glares that I swear could kill.

"Beth and Liam?" Lou sighed.

"Somewhat. But its not them." Niall told her.

Lou turned around and looked at us for a moment. "Louis and Liam?"

"Not my fault this dick kissed my girlfriend." Liam spat sourly.

"I didn't fucking kiss her! Noting happened! The only dick in here is you!" Louis hissed.

"Oh don't act like its not true! I know you fancy her!" Liam bellowed.

"I don't fancy her! I have a girlfriend whom I love! You have a girlfriend who loves you more than anything! Nothing and I repeat nothing is going on between Beth and I! Never has, never will!" He yelled.

"Oh sure! I'm not blind! I can see it!" Liam yelled back.

I couldn't take it anymore. I stood up and walked out of the dressing room.

"Oh and look she's just walking away like she always does!" Liam bellowed.

That was it. I stormed back into the room and slapped him. Hard.

"You think that I'm just going to sit there while you talk to not only your friend like that but the man who has been there when you weren't! I honestly have know fucking idea who you are anymore! You are far from the boy I met when I was 5!" I yelled. "Someone needs to talk some sense into you and if it has to be me then so. Be. It."

I walked back to the door and turned around. "And by the way Liam, I'm not running away. I just can't stand to see the person you've become not only trash your relationship with me but your relationship with your four best friends. And all for what? A secret?" 

I walked out of the room and I could feel the tears in my eyes. I leaned against a wall and slowly slid down until I was sitting on the ground. Where did it all go wrong? What happened to make it all fall apart?

***Harry's POV***

We all watched as Beth stormed out of the room.

"Mate I hate to say it but if you keep this up she won't be yours much longer." I sighed.

"I second that." Niall said.

"I mean, honestly Liam. Beth loves you more than anything. Why would she cheat on you with Louis? If she didn't love you she would be gone by now." Zayn told him.

Liam stayed silent as he held his red cheek.

"And really, this band is going to fall apart if you and Louis don't work things out." I told them.

"Even if we did work things out Beth probably would not forgive him right away. I mean, he's only digging himself a deeper hole." Louis said with disgust.

"Do you ever shut up?" Liam spat.

"Do you ever not act like an arse?" Louis shot back.

"Boy boys. Break it up. What happened the the group of boys who were inseparable? The ones who didn't let a girl come between them?" Lou asked.

"Louis kissed my girlfriend. Thats what happened." Liam spat.

"For the last time! I didn't kiss Beth!" Louis said, a bit agitated.

"Bullshit." Liam spat.

"Liam honey, I may not have known Beth as long as you but...think about it. Why would Beth cheat on you when she has you? She's put up with you for the past three years. She got over you cheating on her, she put up with the small fights, and really, she put up with that ex girlfriend of yours that got her kidnapped and almost killed. And yet, she still stuck with you because thats how much she loves you. Why would she give up 17 years of friendship. A guy who knows her better than every single person on this planet, a guy who loves her for her and not who she is now?" Lou told him.

Liam only sat there. There was no come back for what Lou just said. It was all true and he knew it. He was just too afraid to admit it. Liam glanced at Louis for a moment then at each of us.

"What secret is so important that you would give up a girl like Beth?" I finally asked.

"Theres not secret." Liam mumbled.

"Bullshit. Thats the most bullshit I've ever heard come out of your mouth." Louis spat.

"Yeah well you saying you didn't kiss Beth is the most bullshit I've ever heard come out of yours." Liam shot back.

"For fucks sake Liam! Did you not just hear a word any of us have been saying! You are unbelievable you know that? Unbelievable." Louis yelled.

I sighed and got up from my seat and walked out of the room.  I found Beth sitting up against the wall her head in her hands. I sad down next to her and she looked up.

"I don't know who he is either." I sighed.

"I don't know if I can stand it anymore." She mumbled.

"How have you stuck around this long?" I asked her.

"I love him. I don't just give up on him and walk away." She whispered.

"Liam doesn't realize how lucky he is to have you. You know, before I met Mir I fancied you. I mean, look at you. You're beautiful. You're talented. You're smart. And you stay strong and don't put up with peoples shit. It disgusts me to see Liam treat you like this because he doesn't realize how good he has it." I told her 

She shrugged."He doesn't appreciate me."

"How do you do it? How do you stay strong after everything that has happened to you?" I asked.

She let out a sigh and looked at me. "Stones taught me to fly."
