Four Years Later... (Sequel to 'Behind the Truth')

*Sequel to 'Behind the Truth'*

It's been 4 years. 4 years since I moved to New York. 4 years since I left my friends. It was difficult, but I planned to cope without them.

Ever wondered you could turn back the time and wished you were young again?


Carter Hanson hasn't seen her old friends in four years. She changed, they changed, everything changed.

Sometimes, Carter can't seem to take a break. Not even when she reunites with her old friends. And yes, her old friends are the world-famous boyband, One Direction.

Follow her journey to see how complicated her life is even when her friends are on her side. Secrets are meant to be hidden, but eventually will be revealed.

"Sometimes I have the luck that every girl wants, but not the life..."


10. Forgive and Forget.

Carter's POV:


The nice doorman helped me to Ed's hotel room. Everyone second I was getting closer to his floor, my heart raced a million times faster than the last. My palms were getting sweatier and sweatier as I got closer. Once I was in front of the door, the doorman smiled at me and left. I knocked on the door lightly.  I squealed inside and felt myself getting red of excitement.

"Who is it?" I heard a voice say.

"Carter. Carter Hanson. The girl from the phone call." Okay, this is it, Carter. Be cool. No celebrities like huge fangirls.

My mouth dropped open as I saw seven of my longtime best friends at the door. This was definitely what I had not expected.

Wha- What was going on? What?




Louis' POV:


There was Carter. Taller, prettier, skinnier, and tanner. Wearing floral dresses, colorful tights with combat boots and a blue denim jacket. Her brown hair got longer, and curlier with a few streaks of lighter brown highlights. Gosh, I missed my best friend so much.

Her mouth dropped in... surprise? Shock? Maybe even confusion? I knew I was confused.

But funny thing is, I didn't see any anger in her eyes.

Everyone looked at her, biting their lip as they were ready to be mad at. But no, Carter was frozen. Waving my hand in front of her face, she cleared her throat and straightened herself. "W-What are you guys doing-" She froze again in realization. "Oh.. You guys set this up, didn't you?" We nodded in guilt. "And who was I talking to on the phone?"

I raised my hand. "Guilty."

She just nodded understandingly and looked away as she bit her lip awkwardly. Everyone stayed silent. That was, until I started to talk. "I'm sorry, Carter. But we had to see you after 4 long years..." I started to rant apologies, along with everyone else.

She stopped us with her hand. "Guys. I'm not mad." She put her hands down and held onto the strap of her purse. "Just confused. I mean... I-I don't know what to say.. It's so...sudden."

I stepped forward. "Don't say anything, Carter. Just give me a hug.. We all missed you so much!" I went up to her and opened my arms for a hug. She let out a smile and accepted my hug. Since she got a little taller, she nuzzled her head on my neck. "I missed you so much." I heard her mumble.

"I missed you too, Carter..." I mumbled back, rubbing her back. 

It was just seconds later before I was suddenly pulled back by the shirt from Louise, who hurriedly attacked Carter with a hug, making me land right into Liam's arms. He pushed me back forward to get me on my feet. "Hey!" I straightened my shirt and raised my hands. "Louise!" I complained.

She ignored me, "Oh my goodness, Carter! You look amazing! You got taller! How have you been?!"

"I've been alright. But enough about me! What about you! You look amazing-er!" She chuckled, then realizing she had more friends to greet. Her smile made us all happy that she was back again. It was the happy, carefree Carter that we know and love.

"Eleanor! Jasmine! Oh my gosh, you both changed!" Carter wrapped her arms around the girls tightly and sighed happily. "In a good way of course. I cannot believe it's been 4 years! It feels like it's been forever-"

Niall cut her off by clearing his throat. "Um, Carter? What about your guy best friends, here?" H pointed to the boys.

Carter rolled her eyes, running towards Niall as he picked her up and swung her around. "Miss you, Nialler. You haven't changed a bit.. Well, except for the quiff." She ruffled his hair. When she noticed Liam and Zayn, she did the same thing she did to Niall and jumped into their arms.

"Gosh, I missed you so much. Even though I'm a little bummed on not seeing my idol, Ed Sheeran.." She glanced at me. "Thank you very much." She said sarcastically. I put my hands up in defense. "I'm glad that you tricked me into meeting you.. again. Besides, I can never stay mad at you guys."

"Aw, Carter. Sorry about that. We kind of thought you would actually refuse to come and see us, even after 4 years.." I shuffled my feet on the ground with my hands behind my back innocently.

"I would never." She stated. "Now, come here, Lou. I'm still missing an official hug from you." She opened her arms out as I walked over to her, wrapping my arms around her waist tightly, embracing her small figure. "I hope you still have my TOMS." I whispered in her ear.

I felt her chuckle, "Why wouldn't I?"


Finally. A new beginning for all of us... except one.
