A Loss For Words

Peyton Skies has been deaf since birth. She only communicates through sign language or writing. So when the new student, Niall Horan, tries to talk to her, she can't exactly hear him.

       {Harry's POV}

               Liam ran off before I could even get a word out. I gasped, staring at him as he ran away, frozen in my place against the tree. Once I realized I was just staring at Liam, I started running after him, totally ignoring the shouts from Zayn and Niall. I sprinted after Liam, getting winded but trying to keep my pace. 

             I ran after Liam as he entered  him and Peyton's flat complex. I stopped at the entry, seeing him running up the stairs, unaware I was chasing him. He slowed down, jogging slowly as I ran up the stairs, trying to catch up to him. I guess Liam heard my heavy breathing, because he turned around and once he caught sight of me, he ran up the next flight of stairs. I sighed, running up the stairs after him. 

          As I got to the last step, Liam stepped into his apartment. As i got closer, I could hear the lock click, and Liam slide down the door. I banged my fist on the door, panting slightly at each bang to try and breathe normally again. 

          "Go away!" Liam yelled, causing me to take a step back in shock. Liam never told me to go away, even when we had a fight. I remember this one time in tenth year when me and Liam got into a fight because of some guy bullying me. Liam had stood up for me, getting the bully to back down. I had yelled at him, saying I could take care of myself, which caused him to shout back at me, saying he was just trying to help. 

       "I don't need ypu help!" I had yelled at him. 

       "Don't be stupid, Haz! I was trying to get him to leave you alone!" Liam had yelled back at me, causing me to huff angrily and walk away, not talking to him for the rest of the day. 

       Liam had knocked on my parents' door that night, saying he wouldn't leave until I talked to him, forcing me to talk to him two hours later when he still wouldn't leave. 

       "I'm sorry. . ." Liam told me, causing me to sigh and wrap my arms around his waist, laying my head on his shoulder, mumbling a 'Me too.' 

       I broke out of my haze, stepping towards the door again, banging on it more roughly that before. I could hear Liam groan as he kept mumbling, "Leave me alone."

       I heard quick footsteps behind me, and turned around to see who's they were. I saw Peyton running towards me, her arms flying around, signing all kinds of stuff. Niall and Zayn trailed behind her, looking extremely confused. 

       As Peyton neared me, I turned to her signing, and talking, 'What?'

      'What the hell is going on?' She signed vastly, seeming aggravated not knowing what was going on. 

       'Liam and I kissed.' I signed, looking down at my feet. 

       I heard an excited gasp, and I looked up, seeing Peyton with her hands over her mouth, her eyes wide. She removed her hands, smiling widely at me, patting me on the back. 

      'That's great!' 

       'No it's not. Liam won't even talk to me or let me in the flat!' I signed back at her, hearing her scoff in return. She turned to Niall, who had her bag slung on his shoulder, signing to him that she needed her key. Niall smiled at her, handing her the lanyard with the flat key on it. 

        She turned to me, smirking as she motioned for me to move. SHe put the key in the lock, turning it as she opened the door, stepping behind as me, Niall, and Zayn followed behind her. 

      "This is messed up mate." Zayn told me, patting me on the back. 

       Liam had to of moved from the door, seeing as he was waking out of the hallway leading to his bedroom. When he caught sight of us, he froze, his face pale. He tried to run away, but Niall stopped him, blocking the hallway so he couldn't escape. 

      Liam turned to me, sighing. "I guess we need to talk, huh?"
