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...


5. The Star In The Sky

***Liam's POV***

For the first time in my life I had no one to turn to. No one to tell me that everything would be alright. The moment I left the band I gave everything away. Nothing could compare to the thrill of performing on stage or the millions of fans we had earned. I would never forget the first time we sat down on those stairs and did our first video diary. The four best friends Ih ad made along the way and the experiences I had created. Everything had come crashing down since I had found the note that said 'You guessed it. I got her'. That was the beginning of all the chaos that would later lead to the end.
My eyes wandered the room and they fell on a picture of Beth and I. I walked over and picked it up and went back to my seat on the couch. I sated at it for a while. Her piercing blue eyes stared into mine. Her perfect smile made me want to melt. I knew I couldn't do it without her. Live. She was my everything, my other half. I had lost the one thing that I loved most. The one that I had loved practically my entire life. I would stop time just for one last moment with her in my arms. Theres no point to my life if she's not a part of it. I needed to be with her. I stood up and walked out to my car. I got in and drove to the cemetery. The pouring rain flooded the streets and made it hard to see. It was around 11:45 pm and night had fallen hours ago. Finally I reached the cemetery and I found the stone I was looking for. I got out and knelt before it. Right next to her mum, Elizabeth Ashton was buried. I read the inscription on the stone over and over in my head.

Elizabeth Leah Ashton

Love is the most powerful thing there is, cherish it while you still have it.


To Infinity and Beyond

  I laid my hand upon it and pressed my lips to the cold, wet stone. I felt a tear fall down my cheek. I laid down on the wet grass in front of the stone and looked up at the sky. A little patch of night sky peaked out through the rain clouds. Only a few stars twinkled above me. I recognized it immediately. The star that I has seen from the window of the tour bus on the first night of the Up All Night tour. The one that I vowed that every time I looked at it I would think of Beth.


I sat in the lounge of our tour bus, examining my new surroundings. This was all so new, so almost unreal to us. We, One Direction were going on our first tour. It was like a dream. I knew that there was one thing that could make it better though. If only my best friend, not the lads, my best friend from home. The girl that I had been best friends with since the age of five. Elizabeth Ashton. If only she were here. I would feel complete. I gazed out the window into the clear night and looked up at the stars. My eyes fell upon the brightest shining one. It reminded me of Beth, how I she would always light up when we were together. I sighed knowing I hadn't contacted her in a while. I missed her so much, more than anyone can imagine.

"You okay Liam?" Louis asked.

I turned my head towards him and nodded. "Yeah I'm fine."

"No you're not. Tell us." Harry said.

I shrugged. "I just miss my best friend. We've been best friends since we were five."

"Hold on, we've known each other for a year now and we still didn't know this? How were you able to stay best friends with him for like what? 11 years?" Niall asked.

I smiled to myself. "Its a she Niall. She not he."

They raised their eyebrows and smirked at me.

"Well does this she have a name?" Louis asked.

"Elizabeth Ashton." I grinned.

I smiled just as her name rolled off my tongue .

"Tell us about her? Do you fancy her or something?" Niall asked effortlessly.

I blushed.

"He does. He fancies her." Zayn smirked.

I picked up a pillow and threw it at Zayn.

"Piss off. I don't fancy her. We're just best friends." I told them. "Well, I call her Beth. I'm older than her by half a year. She has long dark brown hair and amazing blue eyes."

I smiled at just the thought of her.

"Amazing blue eyes huh? Sounds to me that you do fancy her." Harry smirked.

"I don't. Even if i did she wouldn't feel the same. Besides, I have Danielle, you boys know that. I love Dani." I told them.

They rolled their eyes.

"Whatever you say Liam. When will we meet this Elizabeth Ashton?" Louis asked.

"I don't know. You know what management said. We have to focus more on our new lives than our old ones." I sighed.

"Since when does that apply to best friends who have been best friends for 11 years?" Zayn asked.

I shrugged and my gaze turned back to the star in the sky. It was so beautiful and it had a faint blue tint to it. Almost like Beth's eyes. There and then I vowed that each time I saw that star, I would think of Beth. I would memorize its placement in the sky and each time my gaze should happen to fall upon it, her beautiful blue eyes would flood my mind.


And once again her blue eyes flooded my mind as I gazed up at that twinkling star. Every single memory we had shared flooded my mind. As my eyes began to slowly close I drifted into a sleep that would not bring new dreams but rather old memories with a big meaning.
