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...


35. Don't Lie To Me

***Beth's POV***

"I swear to god Beth, a smile on you is becoming more and more rare." Grace sighed as we walked into the dressing room before my concert.

I shrugged. "Whats there to smile about. Life isn't all puppies and rainbows." 

"Its not that. Theres something up with you and Liam." She told me knowingly.

"So what if there is. Every couple has their rough patch right?" I asked.

"Yeah but you and Liam have gone days if now weeks without talking to each other. Thats not how you two used to be." She told me.

I sat down in the styling chair and Steph began doing my hair.

"Yeah well we grew up, people change." I told her, trying to hide the emotions building inside of me.

"I never thought I'd hear those words come out of your mouth on the topic of Liam." Steph said.

I bit my lip and sighed. "Nor did I. I just... I feel like we're slowly growing apart. He hasn't contacted me since I confronted him about the Danielle thing."

"I'm sure he doesn't mean to. He's probably just really busy." Grace reassured me.

"Or hes just trying to keep one of his secrets secret." I muttered.

"Maybe you should make the first move then. Call him up. Or call one of the boys up and ask whats up with Liam." Steph suggested.

"Actually, thats not a bad idea. I'll call Louis." I told them.

I took out my phone and dialed Louis's number. After a few rings, he picked up.

"Hey Beth, long time no talk huh?" He said.

"Yeah. So I wanted to talk to you about something." I told him.

"Sure anything." He told me.

"So I don't know if you noticed or not but Danielle got onto the plane right after you lads last week..." I sighed.

"Yeah I noticed. I must say, the looks I gave her could almost kill. Why?" He asked.

"Liam didn't tell me until I confronted him about it. I just... I feel like he's hiding something from me." I told him.

"Well he did pull her to the back of the plane for like five minutes and have a talk with her. Then when we got off the plane he didn't go with us, he went with her. About two hours later he showed up at our hotel in this pissy mood." He informed me.

I let out a sigh. 

"I'm sorry you had to hear it from me. Hold on." He said.

"Liam why didn't you tell Beth about seeing Danielle on the plane let alone getting off with her?" I heard Louis ask.

"You're talking to Beth?" I heard Liam ask.

"Yes Liam I am talking to your girlfriend who is really worried that you're hiding something from her. Now why didn't you tell her?" Louis asked.

"Because I didn't want her to worry." Liam told him.

"Well she sure as hell is worried now. When was the last time you talked to her anyway?" He asked.

I heard him sigh. "A week ago. I just... I feel like she's mad at me."

"Beth are you mad at Liam?" Louis asked me.

"No I'm just worried." I told him.

"She's not mad Liam. She's worried. Suck it up and call your girlfriend before she gets the wrong idea. She shouldn't have to call me and ask me about this." Louis scolded Liam.

"Thats one of the most mature things i've ever heard you say Lou." Harry laughed.

"Can you put the phone on speaker? I want to talk to her." Liam sighed.

"Beth you're on speaker. Liam wants to talk to you." Louis told me.

"Okay first of all I would like you to explain to me why you haven't even tried to contact me in a week. I've called you and you haven't picked up." I said into the phone.

"I... I just. I don't know. I was under the impression that you were mad at me and had no interest in speaking to me. I was letting you cool off." He told me.

"Liam honey, I'm not mad at you. I'm just worried when your ex girlfriend who took part in my kidnapping and abuse let along broke us up got onto the plane after you. The least you could do is mention it to me." I told him.

"I'm sorry. You're right. I should have told you." He said.

"Also, why didn't you tell me that you spent five minutes with her in the back of the plane and got off with her." I asked.

"Louis!" I heard him hiss.

"Liam she's your girlfriend. She deserves to know." Louis told him.

"Look I didn't tell you because I knew you would worry more." He told me.

"Tell me Liam, what did you and Danielle do after you got off the plane? Don't you dare lie to me." I told him.

"We talked. Thats it." He told me.

"Nothing happened?" I asked.

"Nothing happened." He told me. "She just wanted to say that it isn't over and she has big plans."

I sighed. "Typical Danielle. Liam why did you even date her?" I asked."

"Well before she was an obsessive psycho she was actually a nice girl." He told me.

"Thats pretty hard to believe." I told him.

"Yeah I know. Look, are we okay? Are we good?" He asked.

I smiled. "We're fine Liam."

"Good. I'm just glad you're not mad at me." He told me.

"I was never mad at you. If you ever think I am, don't let that stop you from calling. Whether I'm mad at you or not, I always want to talk to you." I told him.

I could tell he was smiling. "Thats a relief. We need to go, we need to get to the venue for soundcheck."

"Alright. Have a great concert. And Liam?" I asked.


"Go easy on Harry during his solo in What Makes You Beautiful. I saw what you did a few nights ago when you pulled his pants down. That goes for all of you boys." I told them.

"Yeah! Listen to her!" Harry grinned.

"Yes mum. We'll try to resist the urge." Liam laughed.

"Go an have a fantastic concert. Harry if they do anything tell me so I can slap them next time I see you boys." I smiled.

"I will." He told me.

"Alright. Well I'll talk to you tomorrow okay? I promise." Liam told me.

"Okay. I love you Liam. Bye boys." I said into the phone.

"I love you too." Liam said.

"Bye Beth!!" The boys said.

"Bye." I said

I hung up the phone and set it down on the counter as Steph began my makeup.

"Everything good?" Steph asked.

"Yeah." I told her. "For now."

Liam honestly thinks that after 17 years I can't tell when he's lying?
