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...


48. Pillow Fights

***Beth's POV***


As soon as the words left the juror's mouth I could feel the smile spread across my face. Soon after the case was closed everyone hurried out of the courtroom. Once outside Liam pulled me into a long, kiss, filled with passion.

"She's gone." He whispered against my lips.

"Does this mean I can finally have you all to myself?" I smiled.

He kissed me before responding. "You've always had me all to yourself. She was like Sid from Toy Story. Just there to cause trouble. But guess what?"

"What?" I asked, a cheesy grin on my face.

"Woody and Buzz were able to escape Sid because they cared about each other. They were best friends." He smiled.

"Well, Liam Payne, if I'm Buzz, you're my Woody." I told him.

He kissed me softly and I couldn't wipe the grin off my face. Soon we pushed our way through the paps and got into the car. The ride home was filled with small talk. Once we arrived home we walked inside and I slipped off my shoes. I felt Liam's arms encircle my waist.

"I love you." He whispered into my neck.

"I love me too." I grinned.

He looked up, his face molded into a pout. "Be that way."

I rolled my eyes and was about to walk upstairs when I felt a soft pillow collide with my arm.

"Oh Liam honey, now you're just asking for it." I grinned.

I picked up a pillow off the couch and swung it at him, hitting him on the shoulder.

"Now you're asking for it." He laughed.

He swung the pillow at me but I dodged it and ran into the kitchen. He ran after me and A grin spread across my face as my eyes landed on a glass of water sitting on the counter. I grabbed the glass and as Liam came up behind me I splashed the water at him.

"Now you're gonna get it." He called after me as I ran out of the kitchen, giggling.

"Your words will be just words, until you bring them to life!" I sang.

I ran up the stairs, Liam hot on my trail. I ran into our bedroom and Liam rushed in after me. I hit him with the pillow on his chest and he hit the back of my thigh. I decided to be a bit mean and play a little game.

"Ow." I groaned.

"Shit I'm sorry." He said instantly, dropping the pillow and rushing to my side.

I sat on the floor, holding my leg like I had just been shot.

"I'm so sorry." He said.

I looked up at him. "Liam..."


"When are you going to realize that pillows don't hurt?" I grinned.

I snatched my pillow off the floor and hit him numerous times. He groaned, laying on his back on the floor. I swung the pillow at his shoulder but he grabbed the other end of it and pulled me on top of him, my legs straddling his abdomen. 

"Two can play this game." He winked.

"Oh really?" I smirked.

"You're not the only clever one." He told me.

Moments later I felt a pillow collide with my arm and I saw that Liam had his pillow in his hand. I grabbed mine and stood up. He was up right after me. I ran out of the room and down the hall, Liam right behind me.

"I told you, you were gonna get it!" Liam called from behind me.

"I hate you!" I laughed I began running down the stairs, Liam right behind me. As soon as I reached the foyer I froze and felt a pillow his my shoulder. I stood there, my cheeks a bit red.

"We brought dinner and movies to celebrate..." Louis smirked, holding up grocery bags and movies.

"But if you two are busy we can go..." Harry said with a smirk.

Liam and I quickly hid the pillows behind our backs.

"No. No we're not busy." I told them quickly, my cheeks still quite red I'm sure.

"You guys are adorable okay? You're 23 year olds and still having pillow fights." Em gushed.

I hit her arm lightly. "Shut up Em. You guys an go to the kitchen. We'll be there in a minute."

They all obeyed and walked into the kitchen. Liam and I burst out laughing and I hit his shoulder with the pillow.

"That was for hitting me with the pillow." I told him.

He hit my arm with the pillow. "And thats for hitting me back."

He grabbed me by the waist with one arm and pulled me into a sweet kiss.

"I love you so fucking much." He whispered against my lips.

"The feeling is mutual." I told him.

I felt my phone in my pocket buzz and I took it out.

@MirandaOfficial: Things still haven't changed since they were 5. 18 years later and they're still having pillow fights. @Real_Liam_Payne @ElizabethAshton, you're rocking the tomato look. 

"Miranda Bay Carter you're just asking for it!" I called.

I ran into the kitchen and grabbed her phone out of her hand.

"Bethh!" She groaned, trying to grab her phone back.

I began typing a new tweet but felt her phone snatched out of my hands. I looked up and saw Liam tying away.

"Liam! Give it back!" I told him.

"Nah." He grinned.

"Liam James Payne." I told him sternly.

"Elizabeth Leah Ashton." He replied back, a smile on his face.

Miranda snatched the phone out of Liam's hand before he could finish the tweet.

"Mirrr!" Liam groaned.

"Nice try Liam." She smirked.

Liam whipped out his own phone and moments later I felt my phone buzz.

@Real_Liam_Payne: I don't care what @MirandaOfficial says. I"ll act like I'm 5 with @ElizabethAshton any day I want. I loved her then and I sure as hell love her now. xx

"Kay Liam stop being freaking adorable because I might just die." I told him.

"Sorry babe, never gonna happen." He grinned.

For the rest of the night we ate dinner and watched movies with everyone else. As each second goes by, its yet another second that I know him. And as each second passes, I feel myself falling harder and harder.
