Never Forget

Katherine Leighton. A normal girl, unless you consider the fact that she's an international superstar. Katherine of all people knows that a celebrity status doesn't fix problems. It doesn't erase the fact that Maria is dead. Or that Maria knew. A collaboration with One Direction is a major boost in her career, but falling in love could be what brings it to shambles. Maria's death starts to look less like a death, and more like a curse, and Katherine will have to give up everything to be able to survive...


13. Dreams Shattered


After the disaster date last night, my mom had invited Zayn to stay the night at our house. She told him he could sleep anywhere, so of course, he’s with me. My phone chimes loudly, causing Zayn to shoot up, wacking his head on the headboard.

“Having trouble Zayn?” I ask with a laugh. He just glares at me and rubs his head as I pick up my phone.


“Katherine!” I hear Harry shout into the phone.

“Um hi Harry, up a bit early are we?” I say. He ignores my question.

“Where’s Zayn?” He asks instead. I hear Louis and Liam laughing in the backround.

“He stayed the night.” I reply, looking over at him as I say it.

“Does somebody need to call the V-card service!” Louis shouts. I jerk the phone away from my ear.

“Not THAT kind of spent the night Lou,” I reply. 

“Sure, dahling. We’ll be over soon kay?” Liam says.

“Mmhmm.” I reply, jumping out of bed.


“I swear that I, can go on forever, again. Please let me know, that my one bad day, will end. I will go down, as your lover, your friend. Give me your lips and with one kiss, we begin.” The hot water splashes down my back as I sing.

“Kat, that’s beautiful!” Zayn calls from the kitchen. Oops, guess I was singing a little loud.

“Thanks!” I reply, stepping out of the shower. I dress quickly and practically run to the kitchen. Louis, Liam, and Harry are sitting at the table and Zayn is serving eggs wearing none other than my mom’s pink “kiss the cook” apron. I laugh when I see him and kiss him, even though he looks ridiculous. I sit at the table and eat my eggs faster than anything I’d ever eaten.

“Can someone go get Katie?” I ask. “We have a long drive ahead.”  Liam stands and runs up the stairs. I smile at Zayn. A horn honks outside.

“Guess this is it, huh Kat?” Zayn asks.

“Guess so.” I follow Zayn outside, nearly gasping at the limo-sized FBI car that waited.

“Hi, I’m Jordan. I’ll be escorting you to a small airport, at which point you will board a plane to a small village in Alaska. No internet access, no cell signal, certainly no inhabitants. You will not make contact with anyone outside your village. Do you understand?” I nod, and so does Zayn. I guess the witness protection program was a lot harder than I thought.

“About your friends, the ones getting married, they’re having a small ceremony consisting of them, the pope, and 3 FBI agents today. You will not be attending.” I look sadly at Zayn. He returns the look as we slip into the black limo car. A few minutes later Liam, Louis, Harry, and Katie all enter the car behind us.

“Guess this is it for One Direction.” Harry notes. Louis nods solemnly. Liam puts his face in his hands. I start to cry.

"If we could only have this life for one more day," I sing, trying to contain my tears. 

"If we could only turn back time," Harry sings back. Katie looks up.

"You know I'll be your life, your voice, your reason," She sings. My jaw drops. She's crying now, along with Liam and Lou. She had the voice of an angel. We're all crying, tears slipping down our cheeks. We're all thinking the same thing at this point. We're done. Our careers are over, so are our lives. I'm blaming it on myself.

“It’s all my fault," I say, the tears coming faster. "You guys worked so hard for your dreams to come true and now I’m ripping them away from you.” I say, choking on tears. Zayn deliberately looks away. “I’m sorry.” I say. “I am so, so, sorry.”
