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...


24. So We Meet Again

***Beth's POV***
"Hey Beth?" Liam called from downstairs.
I hurried out of our room and found Liam in the kitchen.
"Yeah?" I asked.
"Niall just called and he asked if we wanted to go clubbing with everyone else." He said.
"Well do you want to?" I asked.
"I'll only go if you go." He said.
"Well I guess you better tell Niall we're going then." I smiled.
"Alirght. He said he's going to pick us up at 8:30." He said.
I looked at the clock and saw that it was 2: 44.
"Well until then why don't we have a Disney movie marathon." I smiled.
He kissed me softly. "And this is why you're my girlfriend."
We walked into the living room and I grabbed the remote.
"Which one first?" I asked.
"Toy-" He began.
"Besides Toy Story." I laughed.
"Well then how about your favorite. Finding Nemo. "He said.
"Perfect." I smiled.
I selected Finding Nemo on Netflix and snuggled up to Liam. He wrapped his arms around me and I laid my head on his chest. As the movie began I felt myself frown as I watched Nemo's mother die.
"It never gets old." I whispered as Nemo's dad finds the last remaining fish egg that contains Nemo.
"What? The movie?" Liam whispered back.
I nodded my head. I felt his soft, warm lips kiss my temple. As I watched the movie I could feel Liam's eyes on me.
"Liam watch the movie." I whispered to him.
"I want to watch you though. You're more beautiful and important than a movie." He told me.
I smiled and wrapped my arms around his neck and kissed him softly.
"I love you." I told him through kisses.
"I love you more." He mumbled against my lips.
The movie didn't matter anymore. It was just Liam and I.
"I wish you and I could stay like this forever. No tour. No interviews. No signings or albums to record. I want it to be like it used to be. Just me and you." He whispered, looking into my eyes.
"Like when we were kids?" I asked him.
He nodded.
"Well keep in mind, when we were kids, I never did this." I smiled as I pressed my lips to mine.
"You're right. Maybe this isn't so bad." He smirked against my lips.
For the next few hours Liam and I watched movies. Finally after we finished watching The Lion King I looked at the clock and saw that it was 7:45.
"Crap. I have to get ready. Niall will be here soon." I said.
"Babe, we have like 45 minutes. I think we're fine." He laughed.
"Easy for you to say Mr. all I have to do is throw a sport coat on." I smirked. 
"But you could go how you're dressed right now and I'd still think you're beautiful." He told me.
"Yeah you might but the paps wont. Neither will my fans or your fans." I told him.
I walked upstairs and grabbed a towel and walked into the bathroom. I turned on the water and stepped into the hot shower. Once I finished my shower I hopped out and wrapped the towel around my torso. I walked out of the bathroom and into mine and Liam's room. Liam was sitting on the bed with his phone.
"Wow, I'm proud of you." I smirked.
He looked up. "For what?"
"For resisting the urge to come into the bathroom while I'm showering unlike every single other time." I told him.
"Yeah I know. I should get an award." He laughed.
I rolled my eyes. "Yeah the award for adverting."
He got up and grabbed the towel that was sitting next to him.
"Now the question is, will you be able to resist your urge." He smirked as he walked past me into the bathroom.
"You're such a dork Liam Payne. Remind me why I'm dating you let alone friends with you?" I laughed.
"Because you love me and I'm your best friend of like 17 years." He called through the door.
"You're lucky I love you." I called back.
As Liam showered I walked over to my closet and began sorting through dresses and other outfits. Finally I came to the perfect dress. After I slipped it on I grabbed a pair of shoes to go with it and a clutch bag. I walked over to my jewelry and picked out some earrings and a necklace. Once I slipped the outfit on I stood in front of my full length mirror and smiled with satisfaction. Moments later Liam emerged from the bathroom and I walked in and began doing my hair and makeup. I was about to apply some mascara what Liam grabbed it out of my hand and put it behind his back.
"You're beautiful Beth. You don't need makeup." He told me.
I gave him an 'are you serious' look. "Give it back."
"No." He smirked.
"Yes." I laughed.
"I guess you'll have to make me." He grinned.
I wrapped my arms around his torso. "Oh really?"
I slowly kissed him. My kisses slowly ran down his jaw to his neck.
"Beth you're making it really hard to concentrate." He groaned.
"Good." I mumbled while kissing his shoulder.
Slowly my hands crept into his behind his back and I grabbed my mascara brush out of his hands. I pulled myself out of Liam's grasp and grinned. Liam groaned.
"You're good Ashton. You're pretty good." He smirked.
I shrugged. "What can I say, I know people's weaknesses."
"Especially mine?" He asked.
"Liam, babe, I know all you're weaknesses. I've had 17 years to find them." I smirked at him through the mirror.
He smirked and wrapped his arms around my waist from behind as I finished putting my mascara on. Liam began kissing the back of my shoulder and traveled up to just below my ear.
"And now its you distracting me." I told him.
"You may know my weaknesses but I know yours too." He grinned.
Once I finished my makeup and hair I looked at the clock. It was 8:27.
"Liam hurry up with your Hair. Niall will be here soon!" I called to him in the bathroom.
"Hair takes time. At least you're not Zayn's girlfriend or else he would be taking an hour." He called back.
I walked into the bathroom and wrapped my arms around him. "I don't want to be Zayn's girlfriend. I don't want to be anyone's girlfriend but yours."
He kissed my temple. "Good because I don't want any other girl."
He and I walked out of the bathroom and made our way downstairs to wait for Niall and everyone else.
"You look incredible by the way." Liam told me.
"Well you don't look too bad yourself." I smiled.
He wrapped his arms around me and kissed my lips softly.
"I love you so damn much." He mumbled against my lips.
We heard a car horn outside and Liam and I walked out. Niall and everyone else were already in the car. Liam and I got into the car and Niall pulled out. We were all talking and the radio was on. Well... everyone was talking until one of my new songs came on.
"Oh my god shut up. Better Than Revenge is on." El gasped.
Of course, my four best friends began singing it at the top of their lungs. 
"They haven't stopped listening to your album since it came out." Louis, who was sitting next to me, smirked.
I rolled my eyes. "Fangirls."
Niall pulled into the club just as the song ended.
"I have no doubt about what that song is about." Harry said.
"Its about Danielle." Mir said knowingly.
"God I hate her. I hope I never see her horrible face again." El spat.
We walked into the club and we all separated. I stayed with Liam. For almost 2 hours we danced and sang along to the music.
"Want me to get you a drink?" He asked me.
I nodded and he kissed me softly before waking over to the bar. I waited for a while for him to come back but 10 minuted passed by and there was still no sign of him. I looked for him but wasn't able to find him. I found Louis, El, Harry and Mir all sitting by the bar.
"Have you guys seen Liam?" I asked.
"Is he gone?" Louis asked.
I nodded. "He went to get us drinks like 15 minutes ago but never came back." I told him.
"Shit." I heard him mumble.
"Lets go find him." Harry said.
As the five of us searched for him we found Zayn, Perrie, Niall and Em. They began to help with the search too. It was almost 20 minutes before we decided to go check out back. I pushed the door open, everyone behind me. I looked around and saw a few people outside but they seemed to drunk or high to so anything. Finally my eyes landed on a girl with a guy punned up against the wall.
"Just leave me alone. Did I not make that clear to you before." I heard Liam's voice angrily say.
My eyes widened as I saw who the girl was.
"No fucking way." I hissed.
I stormed over to them and pulled Danielle off of Liam.
"Not tied up to a chair anymore am I?" I spat at her.
"I must say, you looked better in that chair than you do now." She smirked.
I pinned her up against that wall.
"You are the reason why I had to spend 9 months of my life in that hell hole! You! All because you have some obsession over Liam!" I screamed at her.
"He was mine first bitch!" She screamed back.
"What are you? A child?! Newsflash Danielle, we're not in elementary school anymore! Get the fuck over it!" I spat.
"All you are is a dirty little slutty bitch who only cares about herself." She hissed.
Out of the corner of my eye I saw Liam trying to make a move but Louis held him back.
"Oh I'm the dirty little slutty bitch? Says the one who took part in kidnapping me, the one who just stood by while my father abused me. The one who can't get over a guy who will never love you. And I'm the dirty little slutty bitch?" I asked.
"Well its the truth." She spat.
My hand met her cheek.
"That is for every single name you called me." I slapped her again. "That is for breaking Liam and I up." Once again my palm slapped across her already red cheek. "And that is for taking away 9 months of my life, for taking me away from my family, my fans, the people I love and just handing me over to a man who almost killed me... all because you can't get over the fact that Liam Payne isn't yours."
As she held her cheek she glared up at me. "The only reason why he sticks with you is because you're convenient. He doesn't love you, he only sees you as a best friend and thats all you'll ever be to him. He could have practically any girl he wants and he chooses you? Liam tends to fake his way through a relationship because he doesn't have the heart to break it off."
I was silent for a moment as her words sank in.
"Don't listen to her Beth!" Liam called. "Elizabeth Ashton, I love you more than any girl on this planet. Don't listen to the girl who made your life miserable. I have loved you from the moment I saw you and I will love you until the day my eyes shut for the last time.  I will love you longer than that. You are my everything, don't listen to her."
I just stared at Danielle, hatred in my eyes. "You said that Liam doesn't have the heart to break it off? Yeah, well he broke it off with you."
I began walking back to everyone when I stopped and turned around.
"Oh and Danielle?" I called.
She looked up from where she was crouched down against the wall.
"If I ever see or hear that you were near Liam or anyone else I love again, I will personally make your life a living hell the way you made mine." I called to her.
"This isn't over Ashton." She called back.
She was right. It was far from over. But this time she wasn't going to win.
