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..."


34. It Happened.

Carter's POV:


"No, of course not." I stammered, trying to hide my face away from them. How was I going to get out of this mess?

The blonde one chimed in, "Are you sure? You look so much like her."

"No, no. I'm not. Some people always look alike, but you must have the wrong person. Don't worry, this isn't the first I've heard someone say that to me." I babbled, hoping to change the subject.

"Oh, that's too bad." The brunette shrugged, "We would love to meet her someday. But quite frankly, I don't know where in the world she is now. I heard she was in New York though."

"Oh yeah. I wonder if she's still there. I also wonder if she stays in contact with One Direction." The curly brunette piped in.

"Oh, are you a fan of One Direction?" I asked.

They all nodded, "They're our favorites too. Melissa has all their merchandises." The blonde one pointed to the curly brunette.

"Who are your favorites?" I questioned curiously.

"I love all of them. But if I had to pick one, it would have to be Niall." Melissa, the curly brunette said.

I looked at the other two friends. "I love Harry and Zayn. I can't pick a favorite." The blonde one shrieked.

"Louis and Liam." The other brunette raised her hand, smiling uncontrollably. "Anyways, we're really sorry we bumped into you. It seems as if you're going someplace." She looked at my outfit, pointing to my dress. "I love your dress by the way."

I looked down at it, "Oh this? Thank you, but it's one of my friends." I paused, looking at their T-Shirts and CDs. "I see you're fans of Ed Sheeran's."

"We absolutely adore him too. He's our idol. We just went to his concert." The blonde one squealed, jumping up and down. "We just wish we could have gotten his autograph, but he doesn't do meet and greets."

I felt bad. Should I help them out? They do seem like really nice girls. I sighed and bent down to their height. "Can I tell you a secret?"

"Aren't you a stranger?" Melissa said safely.

"Mel." The blonde one playfully smacked her arm. 

I chuckled, rolling my eyes. "Don't worry. I won't kidnap you or anything. I just want to do you a favor." I looked around the empty streets before turning back to them. "I am Carter Hanson."

The brunette jumped, "Oh my goodness! I knew it! I knew it!"

"But please! Do not tell anybody. Not even your family, friends, or any other people you know. I am not suppose to be seen by the media or anyone. Please, promise me." I begged.

"We swear on our life that we won't tell anyone." They swore.

"Thank you. Then, I must give you something in return. I promise that I'll make a certain someone give you a phone call." I stood up straight and smiled.

They gasped, "ED SHEERAN?"

I simply shrugged, "I guess you'll have to wait and see. Now, you must give me your number in order for that certain someone to give you that phone call."

The girls frantically tried to find a paper and pen out of their bags. They scribbled their numbers and name down, giving it to me. I stuffed it in my bag and smiled at them. "Remember, if you want that call, you have to promise not to tell anyone that I'm here, alright?" I glanced at them.

They frantically nodded, "Thank you so much!" They ran to me for a hug, which I gladly accepted.

I laughed, "No problem."

Suddenly, the girls started to squeal, looking at something behind me. "CARTER." Niall exclaimed.

"Oh my gosh! Niall!" Melissa squealed loudly.

Niall came up to me, "I... mean.. wrong person..." He said slowly, trying to save my identity.

"It's okay, Niall. They know." I tutted, smiling at the squealing girls.

"May I please have a picture with you, Niall!?" Melissa jumped, taking out her camera.

"Anything for a fan." Niall smiled. "Carter, can you take the picture?"

I took the camera, "Smile." I clicked the button and handed the camera back to Melissa. "Niall, we have to go. I'm really tired."

"So you're really hanging out with One Direction again?" The blonde one asked.

"Yeah. For a while. Y'know, meeting old friends, catching up on things." I shrugged. I felt Niall's arm around my waist. I flinched a little, but regained it quickly. "Sorry girls, we have to go. It was really nice meeting you. Oh, and remember.." I put my fingers to my lips, zipping it across.

"Of course." They exclaimed. "Thank you. Bye Bye!"





Niall and I walked away from the girls towards the dark neighborhood. I glanced back, giving them a wave before they walked away completely out of sight. "You almost scared me, Carter." He said quietly.

"Well I didn't want to barge in that huge crowd." I frowned. "Where are we going anyway? Aren't we suppose to go back to the gang?"

"I figured we could make our own way back home. I mean, I haven't actually spent time with you in a while."

"Niall, we hung out 2 days ago. That isn't exactly 'in a while'". I corrected him. We headed towards an empty neighborhood, away from all the ruckus that happened a few minutes ago. 

"I know. I just wanted to... talk." He shrugged, shoving his hands in his pocket. 

Talk? What did he mean by that? What kind of 'talk'? Is it some kind of 'talk' about us? Wait, what am I saying? There is no 'us' in this friendship. He has Jasmine. 

"Um.. okay." I muttered, trying to brighten up the conversation. "What do you wanna talk about?"

He stopped walking and stood still, his hands still shoved in his pockets with his face staring at the ground as he bit his lip. I walked a few more steps away from him before I stopped and turned to him. "Ni? What's wrong?"

He was silent.

"Niall?" It was worrying me. "Niall?" I ran up to him. 


Then, everything started to happen so fast.


Do you know that typical movie scenes where a guy and girl run up to each other and they end up jumping into each others arms and kiss?


That's exactly what happened between me and Niall.




Quite a shock, huh? Two kisses in one day? What do think Carter will do? They both have girlfriends..

Anyways, in case you don't know how Niall and Carter's kiss went, here how it looked like:




So, cute. :3 Anyways, I'll update soon! See you! x
