Don’t Tell Me
Hey guys this is the first part to the playlist series for Liam! Let me know if you want to be tagged in the future ones!
Characters: Liam x Reader, Platonic Scott x Reader
Save your breath, my brother
It’s not going in
I’m not your disciple, I choose how I sin
I’ve got a distant memory of previous lives
So don’t say I’m not ready
Back off with those knives
“Scott, you’re not listening to me! I love Liam!” My breathing becoming shallower with each word.
“You’re only 16 years old and with everything else happening right now, I’m sure there is more important things to worry about than whether you’re in love or not!” He retaliated.
How could he say these things to his own sister? I thought brothers were supposed to stand beside you, not in front.
“Don’t you lecture me about whether I’m in love or not. Don’t forget that you were my age and in love once as well. You know exactly what I mean.” My pointer finger jabbing the air towards my older brother.
His body stiffened at the implied message that I threw his way. The usually quiet McCall house was filled with breaths full of frustration and scoffs of anger. “I’m not Allison. Liam is not you. And we wont end up the same as what you two did.” I backed away towards the front door, hand clenched hand slowly releasing and grabbing the handle.
The wind nipped at my face. Tears threatened to fall down my rosy cheeks. I knew Scott was only trying to protect me so I wouldn’t endure the same tragedy and heartbreak he did, but in all honesty, the further i was apart front Liam, the more my heart seemed to split. Ever since the dread doctors had arrived at Beacon Hills, Liam was always by my side whether it was intended or not. Scott was too busy trying to stop Theo that he seemed to put his little sister to the side temporarily. Liam stepped in and took care of me, checking in on me in the middle of the night, making sure I always had someone to talk to since Lydia was with Scott majority of the time. Its almost as if Scott tries to protect me from all of the bad in the world so i wouldn’t be as broken as he is. He doesn’t realise, but I’m just as broken as he is.
You don’t know me like you used to
You can leave, but I refuse to
You can tell me that I’m crazy
But I won’t stop and this won’t make me
“(Y/N), get out of here.” Scott called from the end of the hallway. The clattering of shoes echoes through the hospital. The buckles from the wild hunt rung in my ears. Liam stood beside Scott, claws out his hands flexed in and out. I stood in the same place as before, not moving an inch.
“No,” I firmly said, my voice barely reaching above a whisper, “not without Liam.”
“Don’t start this again (Y/N)…”Scott’s eyes were pleading for me to leave, but i still didn’t move. Liam ran down to where i was standing, his hands lacing across my jaw and to the back of my head.
“(Y/N) please go, you’re only human. You can’t protect yourself. I’ll be fine.” His lips met my forehead and I wrapped my arms around his waist. His broad shoulders engulfed my tiny frame.
“Liam, go with her. I’ll stay with Scott.” Theo yelled from where Scott still stood.
Liam quickly turned around to face the two older supernaturals and i looked at Scott. Scott nodded his head and smiled slightly.
“Thank you, be safe.” I whispered, knowing he would still hear me despite being so far away.
Oh, don’t tell me I’m not ready
Oh, don’t tell me I’m not ready for love
The swinging doors of the morgue were blocked by all of the examination benches. Growls rung throughout the abandoned hospital. The cracks of whips and gunshots sent shivers up my spine. Sitting behind a rolling cart in the corner, Liam held me protectively against himself. I looked up and rested my head on his shoulder. The flickering lights from outside shone on his face, making each little feature stand out.
“Why did you stay? You could have got hurt.” Liam whispered, hurt evident in his voice.
“I just… I couldn’t leave. I don’t know why, I just….” I stuttered, not knowing how to piece my feelings together.
“Something just came over me…”
“(Y/N) I can tell when you’re lying, tell me the truth.”
I sighed and he turned his head down to look at me.
“That’s the thing! You know me better than anyone, even Scott for Christ’s sake! When Scott was fighting the Dread Doctors, you watched over me. No one has ever done that for me and every time you fight, i fear that you might not crawl through my window in the middle of the night because you missed me ever again or hold my hand when I get scared.”
“(Y/N)…” Liam interrupted.
“Let me finish. I cant seem to go a minute without thinking about you. I think its because I love you.” My eyes locked with his baby blue ones.
His hand grabbed the side of my face and his soft pink lips pressed against mine. the kiss was full of passion, as if we would never see each other. My hands travelled up his body to the back of his neck while our lips moved in sync. He pulled away and smiled at me.
“I think I love you too.”
