A life of Payne
I stormed into the lounge room with every intention of yelling in Sophia's face but as I got there I saw everyone laughing and having a good time.
Could I really blow up at her in front of everyone?
I wasn't quiet sure if I even believed Calum but why would he make up something like that. I don't think he even knows what Sophia did to Katie when they first met. Sophia never got along with Katie from day one which is why something deep inside me knows that she did this but how could I ask her about it if everyone is here.
Sophia's laugh knocked me out of my thoughts and I looked over at her to see her smiling and giggling at some lame joke Harry had just told. The little voice inside me came back reminding me that right now she was laughing and being happy while Katie was in her room miserable. I couldn't wait until everyone left I needed to confront her now.
Out of the corner of my eye I saw Calum run towards me like he knew what was about to happen but he was far to late to stop me.
"SOPHIA!" Everyone turned to look at me with wide eyes because of how loud and angry my voice was but I don't even care right now.
She gave me a smug look and sat still in her seat, not even scared of me but that is about to change.
"How dare you lay a hand one my sister again! What the hell were you thinking slapping her?" My voice increased in volume with every word I spoke but I stayed in the same spot not daring to walk any closer to her in case I snapped again.
People gasped at what I said. Katie was so tiny that all the boys felt the need to be overprotective of her so it was fairly easy to see the looks on their faces change to disgust when they processed what I had just said.
"I don't know what your talking about." She talked so calmly and cocky that it just increased my level of anger.
"BULLSHIT! You slapped her! How do you not understand that Katie is my priority right now not you. I can almost feel her pain myself right now and to know that my so called girlfriend is the reason behind it just pisses me off to no end!" I swear right now that there should be steam coming out of ears with how angry I am and the look of hurt on her face doesn't even affect me.
"That's why I did it! Because all you care about is that little bitch! You have known me longer and yet you completely ignore me when she is around!" She stood up and tried to walk towards me but I didn't want to be anywhere near her.
"Don't you dear take another step towards me! I spent years trying to find a way to get Katie in my life and when I finally do all you do is push her away from me! At this point she trusts any one of these boys here more then me and that is because of you!" I spat the words at her with so much hatred that all eyes looked at me shocked, I even shocked myself.
"Why would you do that? Katie is fragile and your just breaking her!" Ashley stood up from next to Harry and made her way towards Sophia.
"Why don't you just stay out of it." Sophia replied flatly and went to push Ashley away from her but I stepped in before she managed to hurt anyone else.
"Don't you even attempt to lay your hands on her either! Ashley is god damn right! Katie is tiny and fragile and all your doing is pushing her over the edge." As I yelled at Sophia again Ashley tried to ran towards Katie's room but Harry caught her and whispered something in her ear that made her sit down again.
"I think it's best if you leave. I trusted you to be around Katie again and then you go and do this." I lowered my voice while talking this time trying to hold in the rest of the screaming that I so desperately wanted to do.
"I'm not leaving! You don't even have any proof that I didn't anything." The smug look returned to Sophia's face and I felt the need to yell again but I held it in.
"So your telling me that if I go look at Katie right now there won't be a mark on her cheek?" I folded my arms over my chest knowing that I was right.
She paused for a moment before huffing and storming out the front door.
It was silent for a moment everyone looking sad or angry knowing that this will just push Katie back into her shell that all us lads had spent nearly two months getting her out of.
"Can I go see Katie now?" Ashley asked shyly while looking between Harry and myself.
"I think I should talk to her first." Ashley nodded in understanding and I made my way towards Katie's room.
When I reached Katie's door I wasn't sure if I should knock or go straight in, after all it is my house but it is her room. I decided to slowly open the door as quietly as I could and once I had enough room to slide in I saw Katie curled up in a ball on her bed shaking slightly and still letting out small sniffles.
I turned the thermostat up that was next to the light switch, no wonder she was curled up like that it's freezing in here but I guess when you get hit in the face warmth isn't really the first thing on your mind.
I walked closer towards her small body and sat next to her on the bed, she didn't even look up at me but she moved closer towards me probably trying to feel the warmth that was coming from me.
"Baby girl, are you okay?" I whispered to her but as soon as she heard my voice she sat up and tried to move away from me but I caught her by snaking my arms around her waist and pulling her closer to me.
She put her hands on my chest and tried to push me away just as a fresh set of tears rolled down her cheeks. I will admit that it hurt knowing that she let Calum comfort her earlier but didn't want me.
I didn't let her go but pulled her further onto my lap.
"Katie you need to stop pushing me and hug me. You're freezing cold." I spoke as calm but stern as I could but I think I scared her because she stopped struggling and placed her head carefully on my chest.
She stayed stiff in my arms and cried silently, I knew she was mad at me just by the fact that she wouldn't hug me back or the fact that she hasn't said one word to me.
"I'm so sorry." I stated while trying to hold in my own tears.
She tried to push me away again but I wasn't budging.
"You're sorry? Sorry? Your my only real sibling Liam! Your my big brother and your meant to protect me but yet it's your girlfriend who hurt me in the first place!" She kept trying to push me away from her but no matter how hurt she is or how much her words stung me I'm not letting her go, physically or mentally.
"Katie I will protect you! I'm not giving up and from now on I'm not letting you out of my sight! You mean everything to me Katie that I would literally buy you a rocket so I could take you to the moon just to show you that my love goes all the way to the moon and back. You mean everything to me so please don't block me out. Don't leave me." I let my tears run down my cheeks and hugged her as close to my body as I could and to my surprise she hugged me back.
"Don't let her hurt me again please." Katie's voice was so strained and just sounded so defeated. I just wanted to hug her forever hoping it would heal some of her pain but I know personally that it doesn't quite work that way.
"I will never let anyone hurt you again. I promise."
*4 Days later, February 14th 2014*
I rubbed my eyes and took a deep breathe before stepping into my walk in closet looking for a lazy day outfit.
It was my fourth 'lazy day' in a row and Ashley has been picking up my school work for me but I don't even see her when she drops it off because Liam always sends me into my room or whatever room is far away from the front door. I know he is just trying to be protective like he said he would be but it's just Ashley and I'm getting so bored.
Once I found a comfy outfit for the day I made my way towards the lounge room to see what Liam was doing but stopped when I heard more then one voice. All of Liam's protectiveness has started to rub off on me and now I wont go into a room unless I can tell who is in the room before I get in there.
"I don't think so. There is nothing you can say to change my mind." Liam sounded angry which I haven't heard in the past four days so something must be up.
"Come on mate! I only want to take her for ice cream or something! It's valentines day and you expect her to stay cooped up here all day?" I could recognised that voice anywhere. It was Niall.
"Are you trying to start a war between you and Calum? Because if he finds out he's going to be pissed." Liam sounded like he was actually thinking about letting me go, but do I want to?
"Please Liam! I'm begging you right now."
There was a very long pause before Liam spoke up again.
"Urgh! Fine you can take her out for ice cream but you say one hurtful thing to her and I will find out." I could actually picture Liam getting all up in Niall's face as he talked.
"KATIE!" Liam called me and I waited for a second before walking around the corner to see both Niall and Liam smiling at me with so much love in their eyes. Creepy.
"Niall here was just wondering if you wanted to grab some ice cream?" Liam patted Niall's back a little to harshly as he spoke probably trying to get across how serious he was about not liking the idea.
I'm not even sure if I like the idea! I know Calum is out of town at the moment but am I really willing to ruin things between Calum and myself just for an ice cream?
"It's just ice cream Katie. Just two lonely people on valentines day grabbing an ice cream." Niall flashed a big toothy grin after he spoke and I couldn't help but let out a small giggle at his choice of words.
"I guess." My voice was tiny and rough because I haven't really talked much but Niall still smiled and held his hand out for me to take.
I smiled back and placed my hand in his.
They always say that people deserve more than one chance. Even if it's just as friends this time at least I'm trying to be friends and not ignoring him anymore.
I am deeply sorry if you think this chapter is shitty but I have one of the worlds worst colds right now and I actually find it hard to concentrate right now. (Even typing this authors note is taking me forever)
I also have like no common sense when I'm sick because today I managed to burn my hand while making toast, then screamed because it hurt and now I have lost my voice!
Anyway I'm sorry it took a couple of days to get this up and that it's shitty, I did originally start typing this straight after I posted the last chapter but with being sick and all, most of it had to be retyped a few times before it actually made sense.
Well until next chapter, bye! xx
