Break Your Plans (Liam x MC)
Book: The Royal Romance
Pairing: Liam x MC (Allie)
Word Count: 1515
Summary: Allie makes an emotional decision and gets a surprise visitor. This is set immediately after the engagement tour ends, and assumes the traitor is caught.
Note: This is for two of the new kiss prompts (20. Kisses because everything hurts right now including being loved by you but you’re also the only thing that makes it feel better, requested by @solangeloskisses, and 2. Painful kiss, requested by an anon). :) I really tried to keep this purely angsty, but I need these two to have their happily ever after.
Maxwell and Bertrand insist they’ll ride with her to the airport in the morning. Allie protests half-heartedly, telling them they don’t have to, but she’s so physically and emotionally exhausted that she doesn’t have the energy to argue too much. She packs her bags methodically, checking the bathroom and the closet one last time, then sits on one of the chairs on the balcony outside her room at House Beaumont, staring out at nothing, the previous few days running on repeat through her mind.
Her name had been cleared, but before she could even let herself be happy about that, Liam had almost been taken out by an assassin after announcing that he and Madeleine were no longer engaged. He’s fine, thank god, but she wonders if the nightmares about losing him will ever go away. She hasn’t seen Liam since then, and now, with her flight home in eight hours, she’ll likely never see him again.
That thought makes the tears start
to fall, noiseless sobs escaping her mouth. Liam is alive, her name is cleared,
and everyone involved is in prison or has been removed from court, but Allie
doesn’t know any more if she can live like this, forever afraid of some
nameless, faceless enemy hell-bent on taking one or both of their lives.
