Disclaimer- Not mine. I’m just borrowing them and will return them when I am finished.
Author’s Notes- I got a request for an angsty Liam fanfic where MC leaves during the engagement tour. This was the result. It starts out angsty and then ends up pretty fluffy because I couldn’t resist, I need these two to have a happy ending. This is kind of a crossover with Love Hacks because my LH MC, Evelyn Sloane, makes an appearance.
Summary- The stress of the engagement tour becomes too much for Eleanor and she decides to go home, leaving Liam desperate to fix the mess and reunite with the only woman he’ll ever love.
Eleanor disappears in the middle of the night. They are in France and it’s not until morning that they realize she is gone.
Maxwell goes to wake her and finds a note. I can’t do this anymore. I don’t belong here. Tell Liam… Well, tell him I’ll never forget him. Please don’t come after me. I need time.
She sends a text, later that day, to confirm that she wasn’t coerced or kidnapped. But she won’t say where she went.
Liam reads the note a thousand times. “I’ll never forget him”, it’s such an empty phrase after everything. He wants to scream, and he does in the privacy of his own room with only Drake as a witness, but mostly he feels helpless.
He doesn’t blame Eleanor, though. The tour has gone on for weeks and he had noticed the toll it was taking on her, but he just kept telling himself that they were doing their best and they’d unmake the traitor. Still, he’d noticed how pale she was and heard a report from Hana, how she didn’t seem to have much of an appetite. He’d made an effort to arrange for food she liked and to pamper when he could and he’d convinced himself it was enough.
I never liked the idea of Will’s dad being a jerk,(like he is in ALL fics) I always thought he was just a guy that didn’t know how to express his love for his son in more open ways, after all Will never talked in a bad way about him, and even some of the things he loves are things his dad taught him.
I ended up joking over twitter that his dad was Ron bc they share many hobbies and the way they live, and well a joke led up to this…(Hannigram are still on the run tho but Ron doesn’t watch tv and lives in the middle of nowhere so he doesn’t know/care his son-in-law is a serial killer)
Hannibal will never let Will live down that his dad accepted him officially, Will regrets it so much
Bonus (how do you know what human meat tastes like wtf?!?!)
