They Don't Know About Us (a Liam Payne fanfic)

Sixteen-year-old Charity Stewart's dream is to meet and possibly date Liam Payne from One Direction, but her dad won't let her date until she's eighteen. When Charity meets Liam, they date secretly for two months, but what will her dad do when she finds out she's pregnant with Liam's baby? And why is he so overprotective?


10. Running Away

Charity’s POV


It was one in the afternoon London time when I got to London.  I hailed a cab and told the driver the address Liam had given me.  It only took ten minutes to get there, and I got out with my bags, paid him, and knocked on the door.  When I didn’t get an answer, I went to sleep on the doorstep.




Harry’s POV


The lads and I were coming back from trying to bail Liam and Zayn out (which didn’t work) and going to Nando’s for lunch when Niall pointed out that there was a girl on our doorstep.


I laughed.  “It’s probably just another crazed fan,” I said.


“No, I think it’s Charity.  It looks just like her,” Louis said, pointing in the direction of the sleeping teenage girl.


“Hmm…”  I took a closer look.  It WAS Charity!  Oh, how am I gonna tell her about Liam and Zayn?  She’ll be devastated! I thought as I shook her awake.




Charity’s POV


I woke up to see three pairs of eyes staring at me.  I quickly recognized them as Harry, Louis, and Niall.  “Where are Liam and Zayn?” I asked.


Harry took a deep breath before answering.  “They were arrested, love,” he said.


My heart shattered.  “WHAT?!”


“Yeah, they were sent to jail for statutory rape,” Louis explained.


“And I pressed charges,” Niall added.


“Niall!  I’m gonna KILL you!”  I burst into tears.


Niall laughed.  “Hey, Charity, I was only kidding.  The cop told us your dad pressed charges against Liam, and Sam’s mum pressed charges against Zayn.  They’re going to court in a week.”




“Why don’t you come in and take a nap, love?  You must be tired,” Harry suggested.


I took a deep breath.  “Okay.  Wait a minute…Sam’s mom pressed charges?”


“Yeah.  When Sam and Zayn had sex, he got her pregnant.”  Harry thought for a minute and went pale.  “Oh, my God…you’re not pregnant, too, are you?”  I nodded slowly.  “Does Liam know?”


“No.  I tried to tell him, but I chickened out.”




“Well, I was afraid he wasn’t ready for a baby yet.”


“That’s rubbish!  We don’t call him Daddy Direction for nothing!”


“That’s true.”




A week later, it was time for Liam’s trial.  Zayn’s trial would be the following day.  Daddy and Dan had flown in from Trenton yesterday.


We all filed into the courtroom in silence and sat down.  Then, the bailiff came in and told us to rise for the judge.  We all stood up until the judge, an old lady who probably hasn’t had a date in forty years, told us to sit back down.


The judge kicked off the trial by asking Liam to approach the podium.  He did so, and he was sworn in and asked tons of questions.  He answered all of them confidently.  I admired his confidence; I was literally quaking in my shoes.  I was so mesmerized by his accent that I eventually fell asleep.


I was in the middle of dreaming that Liam was found innocent when someone tapped my shoulder.  I opened my eyes and saw Harry.  “It’s your turn, love,” he whispered.


I nervously got up and walked to the front.


“Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?” the judge asked.


“I swear,” I said, taking my place at the podium.
