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...


31. Don't Say Goodbye, Say Hello

***Beth's POV***

"I can't believe you're leaving again." I sighed as I watched Liam pack the last of his stuff into his bag.

He walked over to me and took his face in his hands. "Hey, no matter where I am or what I'm doing, you will always be on my mind."

I wrapped my arms around his torso and laid my head on his shoulder. I let out a sigh.

"I know... its just that,  I miss you. I miss you not being around me." I told him.

He kissed the top of my head. "Four months. Thats all. Four months and you'll be on tour with me and the lads." He said in a comforting voice.

It was silent as we stood in each other's arms on the tour bus. Every once in a while he would rub my back and kiss the top of my head. I heard the bus door open and I turned to see who walked on.

"You two need to get going. The other boys are already in the car." Grace told us.

Liam and I both sighed and he picked up his bag. We walked off the bus and over to the car. I got into the drivers seat and Liam got into the passenger seat. Like Grace said, the boys were already seated in the back.

"We were beginning to think you two were doing something else in there." Louis smirked.

"Not the time Louis." Liam sighed.

I pulled out of the parking lot and began the drive to the airport.

"Sorry... just trying to lighten the mood." Louis mumbled.

"So um, do you know when your next break is? Maybe you can come visit us on tour." Liam said.

I bit my lip slowly. "I don't know. Grace told me I have a really busy schedule and apparently management wants to add more concerts to my tour when my breaks are supposed to be because my tour is already sold out."

Liam sighed. "Pardon my language but fuck management. Its like they love making our relationships harder."

I nodded slowly. "I totally agree. Zayn, didn't they help make that story of how you cheated on Perrie?"

"Yeah. That was just messed up. I almost killed them for that." Zayn sighed.

"Long story short, Modest Management sucks." Niall said.

We all nodded in agreement. The rest of the ride was silent. When I finally pulled into the airport and I parked the car. The six of us got out of the car and the boys grabbed their bags from the back. We walked inside and the boys got their plane tickets. Finally we made our way to the gate. Liam wrapped one arm around my waist and I laid my head on his shoulder.

"So... do you know the exact date of when your tour ends?" Liam asked.

"I think June 21." I told him.

"Its only February 25." Liam groaned.

"Yeah. At lease I'm not missing your birthday like you missed mine."I sighed.

"I sent you a presents and video chatted you for two hours. I tried." He told me.

I lightly kissed him. "I know you did. You had a concert that night."

He kissed me just behind the ear.

"I love you." Was all he whispered in my ear.

I pulled away and stared into his big brown eyes. "I love you too. More than anything and everything."

He pulled me back to his chest and held me tight.

"I hate goodbyes." He mumbled into my shoulder.

"I know. You told me that when you got accepted onto the X Factor. That was the last time I saw you for two years." I whispered.

"And now here we are. Almost 7 years after that." He told me.

I nodded and set me head on his shoulder with a sigh. "It still seems like yesterday that you asked if you could color me on the day we met."

"Best day of my life." He told me, kissing my temple.

We heard the intercom come on saying that their gate would close in 5 minutes. I pulled away from Liam and walked over to the boys who had distanced themselves from us, not wanting to witness the PDA. Each of us exchanged big hugs.

"I'm going to miss you guys. I can't thank you enough for visiting me on tour. Its really what I needed. If the girls visit you again tell them I said hi." I told them.

They nodded. "We will. Don't worry."Louis told me.

I looked at Liam who was already moping beside me.

"And take care of him for me. Make sure he's not always moping around." I sighed.

"We can try but... he already misses you and you're right next to him." Harry told me.

I felt Liam's arms wrap around my waist and his head rested on my shoulder.

"Its called love Harold." Liam told him.

We heard the final boarding call and I turned to Liam.

"Remember what I said to you the day you got accepted onto the X Factor?" I asked.

He nodded his head. "Don't forget, no matter how famous you get, I will always be there for you."

"And I still mean it. We may both be famous now but that doesn't mean I won't be there for you. I still live up to my word that I made seven years ago and I will live up to it until the day I'm put six feet below the ground." I told him.

I could see the tears forming in his eyes and I watched as he tried to blink them back.

"Its just that, I won't see you for four months. I can't stand the thought." He told me, almost choking it out.

I took his face into my hands, feeling the tears in my eyes coming.

"The distance will only make us stronger." I told him.

"Who said that?" He asked, his eyes red.

"You. You told me that right before you left for two years. Those were the last words you said to me. The distance will only make us stronger." I told him.

He kissed me softly as I watched a tear slip down his cheek.

"Now go before you miss your flight." I told him, tears threatening to fall.

"I love you Elizabeth Ashton. No distance will ever change that." He told me.

He kissed me one more time before pulling away. 

"Lets not say goodbye, but hello." He told me as he walked backwards towards his plane.

It was silent as I watched him disappear into the gate.

"Hello." I managed to choke out through tears.

I watched as one last person boarded the plane. It was a girl with light brown very curly hair. Right before she boarded the plane she looked at me and I managed to see her face. The last thing I saw of her was a short wink and an evil grin on her face. One that had made my life hell.
