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...


39. Lies

***Beth's POV***

-A few days later-

"Beth." I heard a voice whisper.

"Beth!" The voice whispered again.

My eyes fluttered open and I saw Liam standing there.

"Go away." I groaned. "I want my sleep."

"Beth its already 11:12. You've already broken Paul's wake up rule." He chuckled.

"Oh look! Paul isn't here! Sleep time!" I told him sleepily.

I rolled over and faced the side of my bunk. I shut my eyes and prepared to fall back asleep. Before I could fall back asleep I felt arms encircle my waist and lifted out of my bunk. Liam carried me bridal style out to the lounge where the boys were eating breakfast and watching TV.

"Well look who finally woke up." Louis smirked.

"I like my sleep." I mumbled, my eyes barely open.

"Someones moody this morning." Zayn chuckled.

"Fuck off." I mumbled. "Liam you ass, put me down."

"Oh I'm an ass now?" Liam chuckled.

"Yes now put me down." I told him.

When he didn't put me down I opened my eyes and looked up at him. "Liam honey, baby, sweetheart, will you pretty please with cherries on top put me down?" I asked.

"Well when you ask like that." He smiled, setting me down.

"Floor. I never thought I'd miss floor so much." I groaned.

"You were like 4 feet off the ground babe." Liam laughed.

"Says the tower." I told him.

"So far I'm and ass and I'm a tower. What else?" He asked.

"Mine." I smiled, kissing him softly.

I heard the boys groan.

"Payback boys. Its called payback." I told them.

"Yeah, you guys were all over your girlfriends when they were here. I'm not aloud to have my moment?" Liam asked them, his arms wrapped around my waist.

"Yeah sure." Louis groaned.

I pulled away from Liam and took a seat on the couch in between Harry and Louis. Zayn and Niall were seated at the small table and Liam went to sit with them. I began watching Spongebob with them.

"You boys really do love your Spongebob don't you?" I asked.

Louis nodded. "Almost more than Superman."

"Oh yeah? What about Batman?" I asked, not looking away from the screen.

"Oh god not this again." Niall groaned.

"I thought we already established that Batman is better like three years ago." Harry smirked.

Louis gasped. "You've all betrayed me!"

"You still love us." I smiled.

I looked at Liam who's attention was on his phone. I could see anger in his eyes.

"Liam, whats wrong?" I asked.

"What? Nothing." He said, not looking up.

"Liam, babe, I've been best friends with you for 17 years. I know when something is wrong. Now tell me before I find out myself." I said.

"Can you just leave it Beth?" He asked, propping his head up with his hand.

"No Liam I will not leave it." I told him sternly.

"Elizabeth! Just stop okay?!" He burst.

I narrowed my eyes at him. I stood up and walked over to him, snatching his phone out of his hands.

"Beth!" He yelled.

I looked at his phone and once I saw the name anger filled inside of me.

"And to think I was beginning to trust you again." I spat.

I dropped the phone into his lap.

"Well you weren't even supposed to look at my phone in the first place!" He yelled.

"Excuse me for being caring and wanting to know whats wrong! Its what girlfriends do ya know!" I yelled back.

"Yeah well when I say just leave it I mean it. Sorry that you can't listen to anything I fucking say!" He yelled.

I crossed my arms. "Oh I can't listen?! I had to listen to you lie through your teeth for four fucking months Liam! How about that huh?! And I never said a thing!" I yelled at him.

"Oh yeah about what?!" He spat.

"You didn't really just talk with Danielle after you got off the plane with her. Even though the phone I can tell when you're lying." I hissed.

"You don't know anything! You don't even know half of it!" He yelled.

"Oh, I don't know anything. So suddenly this is my fault?!" I asked harshly.

"Yes Elizabeth! Yes it is!" He yelled. "Why can you just accept the fact that its not all about you!"

"Oh so it has nothing to do with me when my boyfriend mysteriously disappears with not only his ex girlfriend but a girl who has caused so many problems in both of our lives?" I asked harshly.

He just stood there, his jaw clenched. "This is not a discussion for right now."

"Oh when would you like to have this discussion? Tomorrow? Next week? Next month? In a year? I've waited four months Liam!" I yelled.

"Well wait a little longer!" He yelled back.

"The longer you lie to me, the deeper the hole that you've already dug yourself gets." I told him.

I pushed past him and walked back to the bunks. I quickly changed into an outfit. As I changed I could hear the boys yelling. I walked back out to the lounge and the boys stopped.

"I'm going out. I'l be back before sound check." I told them.

"I'm coming with you." Louis said, giving Liam a glare.

I nodded.

"So you're just going to run away?" Liam spat.

"No I'm not running away. I just don't choose to argue with a complete arse." I scoffed.

Louis, who was already dressed, followed me off the bus. We silently walked over to the car and got in. I got into the drivers seat and Louis got into the passenger seat. As I pulled out I took one last look at the bus. 

"Starbucks?" Louis asked.

I nodded. The ride was silent for a while before he spoke up.

"You're right you know. He is a complete arse." He told me.

"If only he would realize that." I mumbled.

Soon we pulled into Starbucks and we got out. We walked inside and ordered our drinks.

"Berry Hibiscus Refresher. Grande." I told the woman.

"I'll have the same." Louis said.

She nodded and put in our order. As we waited for our drinks we stood, looking at our phones.

"Excuse me?" I high pitched voice asked.

We both looked up and saw a little girl standing there looking up at us with a notebook in her hand.

"Can I have your autographs?" She asked.

"Of course you can." I forced a smile onto her face.

"Whats your name?" Louis asked.

"Melody." She told us.


Don't ever let anyone tell you who to be.

Elizabeth Ashton

I handed the notebook to Louis and he wrote her a note and singed his name. He handed her the notebook and she ran away squealing.

"Elizabeth and Louis, your drinks are ready." The lady said. "Aren't you those famous british singers?"

"Yeah we are." I smiled.

"My sister loves both of you. She has posters of you guys on her walls." She admitted.

"I took a piece of paper that was on the counter and grabbed a pen. I signed my name and Louis signed his.

"Well you can give this to her then." I smiled.

"Thank you." She replied.

I nodded. "Of course."

Louis and I walked back to the car and got in. I drove to the nearest park and we got out. We began walking along the path.

"So 4 months you've known that he lied to you?" Louis asked softly.

I was silent for a moment. "Yeah. And whats worse was that over those four months he would lie to me even more."

"I wish I knew what he really did. I would tell you if I knew." He told me.

"See, thats why you're my best friend Lou. You are always there for me, I can tell you everything and you wont tell a soul. And when someone is keeping something from me you'd tell me." I told him.

"Well I was in your position once. No one would tell me anything but I knew people knew things. I had no one to talk to. I didn't want you to be in that situation. I didn't want you in the dark." He told me.

I stopped him and hugged him. "Thank you."

"Of course." He said.

We walked silently for about a minute before he spoke again.

"Hes only digging himself a deeper hole." He sighed.

I nodded. "I would rather be hurt with the truth than be comforted with a lie."

"Same." He sighed heavily. 

I could feel emotions inside of me rising. "I'm just... I'm afraid."

"Why?" He asked.

Why. A simple word can bring so many emotions. I felt the tears in my eyes threatening to fall.

"I'm so afraid that its just going to be like last time." I said quietly.

"What do you mean?" He asked.

"What if he cheated on me again?" I asked.

"Well you'd think he learned his lesson." Louis sighed.

I felt a tear slip down my cheek. 

"Oh, please don't cry." He whispered, pulling me into a tight hug.

"I'm afraid because I feel like I'm losing him. Like he doesn't even love me sometimes. Im just... there." I choked out.

"Beth, he loves you. Don't ever think he doesn't. I mean, he would give his life just to be with you." He told me.

"I don't want that though! I don't want him to give his life just to be with me! Especially if I'm not even dead. I'm afraid because of how much I love him." I told him.

"If he... if he did cheat again, would you forgive him?" Louis asked.

"There are only so many times you can forgive and forget." I replied.
