Payton ; I looked at him and locked the door. "That thing is steady." I looked at him and then lifted my matress. I got 3 athames out and gave them to him. I then walked over to the dresser and took out the small handgun that I got from Nate. I gave it too him too. I then walked over to the curtain and pulled out a miniture crossbow. "I think i'll be fine, Liam. Alyssa came here, and I had her. I planned on letting her take me. Why do you think I let a blood-trail. I wanted to stir her up. I wouldn't do that with another vampire, but I had her. Alyssa was just different." I saw him staring at the athames and I grabbed one, twisting him around and holding it to his throat. "THIS is what i'd do if someone attacked me."
Liam: I looked at the knife that she held at my throath and I said: "Maybe you should keep that thing a little bit farther away from me. I mean... Before accidents happen." I smiled at her and then looked at the other weapons she had. She was right. She could defend herself. And I trusted her, but I just wanted to be able to protect her. And I felt useless at the moment. "But you're right. You are able to protect yourself. I am just a concerned brother."
Payton ; I took the knife away and looked at him. "No need to be concerned, okay? I'm grown up, I don't need your protection 24/7. And like we talked about, you'll have your hands full helping my sister."
Liam: "I know, but still. I know you are grown up now and all that, but I just want you to be okay. Although I don't have to take care of you, I still want to." But I got that she wanted to do everything on her own. She wanted to prove that she didn't need anything.
Payton ; "And I love you for it. But I don't need you looking over my shoulder. You should go and live a life. Find a girlfriend, settle somewhere... between Portland and Waterfall Creek. Make sure my.. our little sister survives her senior year and then you've done your job."
Liam: "A girlfriend? Payton for real? you know I don't do girlfriends. It's not my kind of thing, you know... The possibility of me hurting her... I am not like Seth or the Dawsons and you know it." I then looked out the window and nodded. "Yeah, maybe I should be there for Claire a little more. But Claire has Seth, and the Dawsons and Mila, Mike and Justin. You are alone here..."
Payton ; I looked at him and sighed. "You didn't do siblings before either." I smiled at him and then sighed. "But I'm not. I can't sneeze or Nate knows it. They're right here... I'm safe, Liam. I know you told your mother you'd stay with me, but Claire needs you too. Go. I don't need you to protect me."
Liam: I sighted and shook my head. Why was she always a step ahead of me? And why was she so stubborn. I looked at her and then nodded. "Okay, if that's what you want I will go back to Waterfall Creek. I will watch over Claire and make sure she doesn't do anything stupid. It's just... I'm just afraid she doesn't want me there. Just like you don't want me here."
Payton ; I smiled and hugged him. "In contrary to me, Claire is used to being watched over." I didn't want to let go just yet, but I had to. "I'll be fine. I will call you as soon as I'm in trouble, I promise. If you promise me to keep me updated too, okay ?"
