48. Chapter 48

Zayn's POV

Morning came quickly the next day. After the promotional concert Mia decided she didn't feel up to going to the after party and truth be told, I didn't feel much like going either. As a matter of fact, none of us went. We picked Aili up on the way home and we we're all so wiped out, we went to bed!

Mia talked a bit in her sleep last night, which is unusual for her. Liv did it too the further along in her pregnancy she got...Maybe it's a pregnancy thing. Mia was still sound asleep beside me. She looked so beautiful and peaceful when she slept. I propped myself up on one elbow and gazed at her. She kept her hair up in her ponytail last night so it was just sprawled out perfectly around the top of her head.

I leaned over and planted a soft kiss on her pink full lips. Her eyes fluttered open as a smile spread across her face and she stretched. "You should go get cleaned up, we have to leave in about an hour...", I whisper. "Ok...", she mumbles as she pulls herself from our bed. I hear the shower start as I walk into the bathroom to shave.

"Did you sleep alright last night?", I ask. "Not really...Why?", she answers me. "Because you talked in your sleep a bit...". "Did I say anything interesting?", she asks. "Something about someone hiding...", I answer her. She got really quiet then, until finally, "Zayn...Something strange happened last night at the arena", she confesses. I stop what I'm doing and pull back the shower curtain to look at her. She's looking at me with a somber expression. "Did someone hurt you?", I ask my hands already in tight fists. "No, no!...It's just, when I went back to get my jacket there was someone hiding behind the speakers. They were watching me, but when I spoke they didn't answer. It kind of gave me the creeps", she says, wrapping her arms around herself. "Babe, why didn't you tell me this last night?!", I shout. I see her flinch a bit at my harsh tone. "I-I wasn't sure at first and then I was just afraid...", she explains, and I can see her shivering.

I grab her towel, wrap it around her and shut the water off. "I'm sorry I snapped", I say, lifting her out of the tub. "I don't want you going anywhere alone anymore...Understand? You're to have Paul or some other member of the security team with you at all times", I say, setting her down on the bed. I pull her against my chest, "Promise me Mia! And not the kind of promise you made to me the last time, when you just said what I wanted to hear and then you did what you wanted to do anyway! A real promise, that you're going to make, and you're going to keep!", I ramble. "Zayn, you're scaring me...", she whispers. "I'm sorry", I say, still holding her. "I promise...", she answers me.

I dress quickly and call Paul, as I make my way out to the kitchen, Liv is up feeding Aili her breakfast and Niall, Harry and Lauie are seated at the kitchen table eating breakfast. "Hey Paul. It's Zayn. Mia and I are coming into the city this morning for an appointment. I want you with us. And from now on, if she leaves the house I want you or someone else with her at all times. There was an incident at the arena last night and I'm not taking any chances. Thanks", I say, looking up at everyone. "What incident?", Liv asks concerned. "When she went back for her jacket last night, she felt like she was being watched then she caught a glimpse of someone hiding behind the speaker", I explain.

"Good morning everyone...", Mia says as she makes her way over to the cereal cupboard. "Why didn't you tell me about what happened last night...", Liv snaps. Mia shrugs her shoulders. "I told Zayn this morning Liv. No need to make a federal case out of it...", she answers, reaching for a box of cereal.

I'm taken by surprise when I see her bring her arm back down abruptly and slump over the counter. "Shit!", she pants, breathless. "Mia?", I say, as Liv and I both dart to her side, suddenly worried. "I'm ok, just another cramp", she says, as she takes my hand in hers. I watch as she breathes her way through it and then, just as quickly as it hits her, it's gone. "Ok, I'm ready to go see Doctor Hodges now", she says. "Niall and I are coming too...Lauie can you watch Aili?", Liv asks. "Absolutely...Call us if there's anything ok?", Lauie answers.

It's early when we arrive at the clinic, Paul decides to wait for us in the car downstairs. They usher us right down to the private seating area and within a matter of minutes the nurse comes out to take Mia and I in. "Good Morning Mia. Zayn", Doc says. "Anymore cramping?", he asks. "One just before we got here", Mia answers. "Well, let's see what's going on in there. Shall we?" Doc says, taking Mia's hand and guiding her to his ultrasound table. She lays back as he does his thing.

We were here once before already, and everything looked great. We decided we didn't want to know the sex of the baby until it was born. We watch the baby on the monitor as he works his way around her tummy with his scanner. Finally he sets it aside and grabs a glove out of a box. I hear Mia groan. "Sorry love, I do need to do an internal as well. Just to check your cervix and such", he says, as he draps a sheet over her bottom half. "Zayn, help me with my jeans...", she whispers and I walk to the end of the table and pull them off for her.

Then I take my place by her side again and hold her hand. "Mia, you're going to feel some pressure. You might feel some discomfort but I really need for you to just relax, breathe through any pain, and try to stay still, ok?", he says. "So, what do you feel like doing for the rest of the day?", I ask, trying to offer a distraction. She looks at me and smiles, "Anything...but this...agh!", she gasps, as her hold around my hand gets a bit tighter. Her brown eyes lock on mine as she struggles to remain calm and remember her breathing. "You got this Mia", I whisper.

"Ok, all done! So Mia, everything looks great. The cramps are just false labor pains called Braxton Hicks. They can be uncomfortable, but nothing to worry about. When one hits just try to put your feet up and breathe through it, ok? This far along in your pregnancy, rest is always a good thing.", he says. "How will we know when it's the real thing?", I ask. "When they're coming at regular intervals or when her water breaks", he answers. "What about sex?", I ask. "Sex is fine. Nothing to rough and if something is uncomfortable then don't do it. Just use your own discretion when it comes to that. You only have about 6 weeks to go until your due date, so really, you could go anytime", he says, helping her sit up on the table.

"Where to now Mrs. Malik?", I ask as I help her with her jeans. "Home please...I plan on parking my ass in the hot tub and staying there...", she giggles. "Want some company?", I whisper. "Only if it's you..." she says, pressing her lips to mine. "Let's go home then...", I say, helping her off the table.

Liv's POV

As Niall and I wait for Mia and Zayn, I can't help but worry. My mind is racing with with 'what if's'. What if there's something wrong with Mia or the baby. What if 'he's' not really dead? What if Kristin comes back? Has Harry even checked to see where she is and what she's doing? If feel a hand run up my back and I jump, startled. "Sorry love, I didn't mean to scare you..You ok?", he asks. "No, what if it was Kristin, Niall? Harry hasn't even followed up on that. We don't where she is or what she's doing...", I say, panicked. I can feel my heart pounding in my chest. Niall Wraps an arm around my shoulder. "We'll check with Harry when we get back, ok? Don't say anything to Mia yet...No need to put any extra stress on her...ok?"

Mia's POV

Last night really freaked me out, but I can't let Liv and Zayn know that. I can't wait to get back to our own secluded little spot on the beach. I'm not budging from there for the rest of the summer and neither is Zayn.

Katie's POV

I rolled out of bed and scanned the room. I'm alone. I take a quick shower and pull on some shorts and t-shirt. As I'm brushing my hair, I hear a soft knock on the door. I open it to find Liam leaning against the frame with a flower in his hand. "Good Morning beautiful...", he says and I giggle. "Hey there handsome", I answer. "Want to go somewhere today?", he asks me. "Depends...", I answer. "On what?", he asks. "On whether or not you'd be coming with me...", I say, as I give him a wink. A huge smile spreads across his face, he sniffs at the flower he's holding and then hands it to me. "For you...", he says, wrapping his hand around mine and giving it a tug. I toss my brush on the bed and follow him out the door. "Where are you taking me?", I ask. "Day trip...", he says, offering no further explanation.

I say bye to Lauie and Harry, and give Aili a kiss on the cheek before heading out the door. It's kind of cloudy and cool today, I probably should of worn a jacket. I shiver a bit as we get into the heli, Liam wraps an arm around me. "Thanks. I probably should of brought a jacket", I mutter. He leans over and presses his lips to mine, warmth radiates through my entire body. "I'll keep you warm", he says, huskily. My heart skips a beat and I can feel my face blush a bit. This whole waiting until were in a 'good place' thing, might be more difficult than I thought.

There's a car waiting for us when the heli lands. He opens the door for me and I step inside. "It's a bit of a drive...I hope we don't get bored", he says, looking at me. "Maybe we could watch a movie or something", I suggest. "Toy Story!", he says, and I laugh. "Toy Story it is then!", I say as he cues it up. About halfway through the movie I can feel him wrap his arm around my shoulder. He leans over and kisses my cheek.

I turn my head to look at him, our lips just inches apart. I can feel my hands sweating and my heart thumping loudly. Everything is so intense. I'm struggling to keep my hands to myself, I just want him so badly. "Katie...", he whispers. I close my eyes and concentrate on slowing my breathing. I feel his hand on the side of my face, "Katie open your eyes...", he says. My eyes flutter open and I stare helplessly lost in his. I see him leaning closer until our lips meet again.

Our kiss deepens as I allow his tongue full passage into my mouth. Warmth is definitely not an issue anymore, as a matter of fact, I could really use an ice cold shower. We're completely caught up in the moment and I have no intentions of stopping until Liam breaks our connection. "Why'd you stop?", I ask, breathless. He looks deep in my eyes and says, "If and when I make love to you for the first time, I don't want it to be in the back of a car. It means more to me than that", he says.

I think my heart just melted in a big gooey romantic puddle on my seat. Well, maybe it wasn't my heart that puddled, I chuckle to myself. "What's so amusing?", he asks. I shake my head, "My complete lack of self restraint", I mumble. I flip open my phone and tweet.

After about 2 hours in the car I start to wonder where the heck we're going. Then I see a sign that reads, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England. "Isn't this where you're from?", I ask. "Yes... I hope you don't mind but I we're having dinner at my house tonight. I want you to meet my mum, dad and sisters".

A feeling of nervousness runs through my body, "Um, ok...I guess. I wish you would of asked me first though", I say. "Why? You don't want to be here?", he asks, and I can hear the hurt in his voice. "Don't put words in my mouth Liam. I just didn't think we were at this point yet", I answer, quickly. I feel the car stop, "I'm sorry, I just thought...Katie I really like you", he says. "No Liam, I'm the one who's sorry. Let's go. It's all good", I say, grabbing a hold of his hand.

I open the door and get out of the car, Liam gets out right behind me. We approach the front door as it flies open. "LI!", an attractive woman says. "Hi mum!", he says, hugging her. Liam ushers me in the door and we're quickly surrounded. "Everyone this is Katie...Katie this is my dad, Geoff and my mum, Karen and my two older sisters Nicola and Ruth", he says, as they all give me a hug.

After a wonderful meal, full of great conversation we head into the livingroom and that's when I notice the beautiful baby grand piano. "Wow, is this a Steinway & Sons "Alma-Tedema"?", I say, running my finger lightly along the finish. I see Liam and his dad's eyebrows shoot up. "You're familiar with it?", Geoff asks, surprised. "Definitely. I've never seen one up close before, though. Who plays?", I ask. "No one, I bought it because it's beautiful. It's been completely restored and tuned but we've never played it. Would you care to try it", Geoff answers again. I look at Liam, and he nods eagerly at me. I pull out the bench carefully and sit down. Then I start to play...

Everywhere - Michelle Branch

Turn it inside out so I can see

The part of you that's drifting over me

And when I wake you're, you're never there

But when I sleep you're, you're everywhere

You're everywhere

Just tell me how I got this far

Just tell me why you're here and who you are

'Cause every time I look

You're never there

And every time I sleep

You're always there

'Cause you're everywhere to me

And when I close my eyes it's you I see

You're everything I know

That makes me believe

I'm not alone

I'm not alone

I recognize the way you make me feel

It's hard to think that

You might not be real

I sense it now, the water's getting deep

I try to wash the pain away from me

Away from me

'Cause you're everywhere to me

And when I close my eyes it's you I see

You're everything I know

That makes me believe

I'm not alone

I'm not alone

I am not alone

Whoa, oh, oooh, oh

And when I touch your hand

It's then I understand

The beauty that's within

It's now that we begin

You always light my way

I hope there never comes a day

No matter where I go

I always feel you so

'Cause you're everywhere to me

And when I close my eyes it's you I see

You're everything I know

That makes me believe

I'm not alone

'Cause you're everywhere to me

And when I catch my breath

It's you I breathe

You're everything I know

That makes me believe

I'm not alone

You're in everyone I see

So tell me

Do you see me?

"Wow, that was really good", Karen says. "Thanks, I'm in my 3rd year of 'Music Technology', back at home", I say. "Liam, that's what you were taking at Wolverhampton College! You guys seem to have alot in common...", Karen says, smiling. "So it would seem", Liam whispers, staring at me. I feel a shot of electricity run through my body.

It's well past 7 by the time we say our goodbyes and head back to the car. "Toy Story 2?", Liam asks me. I yawn and say "Sure". I rest my head on his shoulder as he wraps my hand in his. "I was worried they wouldn't like me, but I had a good time, thanks", I mumble. I feel him kiss the top of my head before I drift off to sleep.
