I was staying over at Liam's because he's been having torturous nightmares about killing people in the pack. He knows I'm the only other strongest one besides Scott and that I could hold him back from doing anything.
We were sitting on his bed, face to face, talking about his nightmares and how bad they were.
"Last night I couldn't take it anymore. I was in your house and I was standing there, in the basement, with blood on my hands. I-I looked down and I..." Liam looked down and a tear fell from his eye. I put a finger under his chin and made him look at me.
"I know it was me, Li." I said and he nodded. I wiped his tears away then pecked his lips. I began to pull away, but Liam held me there. He laid me on my back on his bed and we kept kissing.
When I thought it was getting too heated I stopped him.
"I think we should go to sleep, love." I said, gasping for air.
"I'm scared to." Liam said then I pecked his lips one last time.
"I know." I whispered. "But I'm here. I'll always be here."
"I love you, Shawn, but if I hurt you-"
"I'll be fine. Get some sleep, love." I whispered one last time before we dozed off.
I woke back up when I heard whimpering and growling. I turned to see Liam hyperventilating in his sleep. I place my hands on his cheeks and my forehead against his. I rubbed his cheeks with my thumbs and he calmed down.
I smiled and pecked his lips before falling asleep again.
