Don't Get Too Close // Liam Payne AU

They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

Don't Get Too Close~ New Beginnings

Liam didn't go to English, which I kind of expected after the way he stormed out of the coffee shoppe like that. I was really hoping he would've gone to English so I could ask him what I did wrong. What would be the point though? He would just freak out on me anyway, so I guess there really was no point.

I just don't understand him at all. Every time we have a decent conversation--using the term decent very lightly--he stormes off like his ass is on fire. 

What did I say to make him leave like that? It was definitely because I mentioned Zayn and Harry, but Liam likes Zayn, so it must of been because of Harry. Does he not like Harry? How could he not like Harry though? He's so nice, and friendly, and sweet. He's also so easy to talk to. Liam's such a stiff most of the time, and I don't understand why. 

There's something about Liam that just keeps me guessing. I don't know what it is, but I'm determined to figure it out. I want to prove to him that I'm not like everyone else. I'm never going to leave him no matter how hard he tries to push me away. I'll always be right here.

A sudden buzz from my phone snapped me out of my thoughts. It was a text from my mom. 

To: Me

From: Mom

How was your day honey?


To: Mom

From: Me

It was uneventful. Can we go see Niall today?

To: Me 

From: Mom

Of course! I'll be by later to pick you up then we can head over.

I replied with an "okay!" then I put my phone back into my pocket. I was currently in the Library all by myself. I was all alone today. Liam didn't go to English, and Analeigh didn't come to Child Development today either. I didn't want to sit in the library anymore, so I decided to go outside in the fresh air.

I went to sit down on a bench to relax in the sun. It felt so good against my skin. I was determined to soak it up while I could because in a few weeks, it wasn't going to be here much longer. I heard someone walking up behind me. He sighed heavily before sitting down on the bench with me. I tried to pretend I was busy by playing around on my phone.

"Julina?" a familiar voice asked. I looked up to see Zayn smiling at me. He looked as terrible as I did. His red, puffy, sleepless eyes gave it all away.

"How are you feeling?" he asked.

I shrugged my shoulders, "Okay, I guess. How about you?"

He shook his head, "I could be a lot better." he said. I nodded in agreement. We were both quiet for a moment, then Zayn spoke up, "I was going to go to the hospital to see Niall. Would you want to come with me?" he asked.

"Sure! I'd love too." I said, giving him a warm smile. I texted my mom, telling her she didn't have to come get me at school because Zayn and I were heading to the hospital.

When we got there, we signed in at the receptionists desk. A nurse brought us down to Niall's room where he was awake, watching TV.

"Niall!" I gasped as I walked into the room, tears already threatening to spill. I rushed over to his bedside and gave him a gentle hug.

Niall laughed, "Hey Julina." he smiled hugging me back. He looked a million times bettter than he did just yesterday when I saw him last. 

"Hey Niall." Zayn said awkwardly, standing next to me.

"H-hey Zayn." he stuttered. He had this look in his eyes; they sparkled when they looked at Zayn or talked to him. It was probably the most adorable thing I've ever seen.

"How have you been feeling?" Zayn asked.

NIall smiled, "I'm feeling a lot better now that you guys are here." he said, making Zayn blush.

"Should I leave you guys alone for a moment?" I asked smiling. Both their heads turned in my direction, obviously forgetting I was there. 

"No, but Zayn? Could you give Julina and I a moment alone?" Niall asked. Zayn nodded happily and left the room.

"Do you think he likes me?" Niall immediately asked as the door shut behind Zayn. 

"Well, if it's not written all over his face, then it's definitely written all over yours. Why didn't you tell me you liked him?" I asked.

"Well, if you haven't noticed, I kind of had this dilemma and I had to go to the hospital."

I nodded, feeling stupid, "Right."

"So you do think he likes me?" Niall asked, hope clear in his voice.

I nodded, "I definitely think he likes you. More than you realize."

Niall's lips went flat, trying not to smile but failed, "We'll have to hangout more often. I want to get to know him better."

"Well, you'll see him a lot in school." I said, rubbing Niall's hand.

He laughed lightly then nodded, "That's good." He smiled.

There were three faint knocks on the door before Zayn's head popped in, "I brought vending machine food back." he said with a small laugh.

Niall and I smiled as he walked back in, "Believe it or not, hospital food isn't that bad. I get chicken tenders today." Niall said.

There was something in Niall's eyes when he talked to Zayn. Maybe it was just because I knew he liked Zayn. Whatever the reason was, they seemed to sparkle. His cheeks went through many shades of pink and red as he blushed. Seeing Niall so happy like this was not only new to both of us, but it was just so adorable.

"I'll be right back guys. I'm going to the bathroom." I lied. I just wanted them to have a few minutes if privacy.

I stepped out of the room and walked down the bleach white hallway. This hallway felt too familiar. It felt like the hallway I ran down to get away from Dr. Gil and all her questions that just brought the pain back instead of making it go away.

I shook the thought of that horrid place away when I walked through the big brown doors to the waiting room and noticed two very familiar faces. Analeigh wore an enormous smile on her face as she ran to hug me. Harry was slowly walking behind her with the most beautiful smile playing at his lips.

"Hey!" Analeigh said softly as she squeezed me in a hug. "How is he doing?" she asked letting me go.

"He's doing a lot better than he was yesterday. He's awake and talking to Zayn right now."

"Speaking of Zayn and Niall together, can I ask you a question?" Analeigh asked, her demeanor full of curiosity.

"Sure I guess." I said shrugging my shoulders.

Analeigh leaned in close to me, as if to tell me a secret, "Is Niall bi or gay?"

I smiled in confusion to her question, "What?"

"I asked because Zayn is bi and I think he might have a thing for Niall. I was just wondering if Niall could possibly have a thing for Zayn back."

I laughed, "He was literally trying not to fangirling over the fact that Zayn might like him back. That's actually why I'm out here. To give them a little privacy"

"Their in there together alone?" Harry asked, sounding shocked.

"Yeah. Is that a bad thing?" I asked, sounding a little confused.

"Well, two sexually frustrated guys together in a room alone doesn't like a good thing."

"Harry, their in a hospital room. Nothing is going to happen." Analeigh said, slapping his upper arm. "Besides, how do you know their sexually frustrated?"

Harry gave her a 'duh' look before answering her, "Because all guys are sexually frustrated."

"Can we discuss this some other time? Lets just get back to Zayn and Niall." Analeigh said.

- - -

After seeing Niall today, I definitely feel better now knowing that he's okay. He'll be coming home tomorrow and he'll be staying at my house for a few days. I was so thankful that he was okay, and that things didn't take a turn for the worse.

I went to sleep that night feeling happy and at peace, something I haven't felt in a while.
