Red Flag

Carter Thompson is a 15 year old girl that has lived in Charlotte, North Carolina since her parents got divorced. All she wants is to kick her feet up with her two best friends Jacob and Blake. But when her Dad remarries another woman, she is forced to leave her North Carolina life behind and join links with her new family. Dreading the move, she meets her oh-so familiar looking stepbrother, not having a clue he's adored by many young girls across the globe. Harry asks her to come on tour with him, and his band mates, and since then her life has chosen the path consisting of ups-and-downs. As she gets to know the boys as well as Harry, she finds herself falling for one of the boys without really knowing it, along this crazy new life. Throughout the story, she starts realizing that maybe it was worth the move after all.



Carter’s POV


I shot up from my slumber, hitting my head  on the top of the bunk in the process of it all. I moved the covers off of me as fast as I could. I carefully crawled out of the bunk trying not to wake anyone since it was about 3 in the morning. I hopped over to the other side of the bus and pulled back the curtain to Harrys bunk. I poked his shoulder and watched as he rolled over onto his other side. I poked him again, this time he opened his eyes a little and looked over at me. “Cat, what are you doing you?” He asked in a whisper so that he would not wake the other boys. “Can I sleep with you?” I didn’t answer his question. “Uh. Sure.” He pulled the blanket back for me. I crawled up and in under the warm blanket. I snuggled into his chest and closed my eyes. I felt him kind of stiffen when I snuggled up to him, but he quickly relaxed and put his arm around me. This reminded me so much of when I was younger. I would always go into Zack’s room when our parents would be fighting. He would cuddle with me on his bed till I fell asleep, or at least calm down a little. He would try to get my mind off of what was going on outside the room. Even if he had friends over, if I came in his room and told him that I heard mom and dad going at it he would not let me out of his sight. That’s one reason why we are so close. No matter what we have each others back.


Harry’s POV


I woke up and felt a body snuggled up beside me. I looked down and saw Carter laying there fast asleep. I heard movement on the other side of the curtain, so I pulled it back a little and saw Louis getting out from his bunk. “Louis? What are you doing up so early?” I whispered so that I wouldn’t wake Carter up. He looked at me for a second then answered my question. “Harry, it’s 1:42 in the afternoon. Why are you whispering?” I pulled the curtain back a bit more so he could see that Carter was sleeping beside me. Louis nodded his head, understanding why I was whispering. “Why is she sleeping in your bunk?” He asked. I shrugged my shoulders. I slowly and carefully started to get out of the bunk, trying my hardest to not wake her. I made it out of the bunk and started to make my way to the kitchen. When I walked through the doors I saw that almost everyone was awake. Zayn and Carter were the only ones that weren’t in the room. I grabbed myself a water from the fridge and sat down, trying to remember how Carter got into my bunk.


While sitting there drinking my water I finally remembered, Carter had poked me in the middle of the night and asked if she could sleep with me in my bunk. I said yes and she snuggled into my chest, as if she was trying to hide from something that happened. I do not know, but I am going to ask her about it when she wakes up. I got up and walked back into the other room. I saw that the curtain to my bunk was completely open and Carter was not in there. I walked over to her bunk to see if maybe she was in there. I pulled back on the curtain and saw no one in the small bed. I walked back out and asked the lads if they had seen her, but they all shook their head back and forth.


‘I can’t believe this! I leave for ten minutes! And when I come back she's gone! What kind of brother am I?!’ “You’re a good brother Harry.” I heard a girls voice say from behind me. I turned around and to my surprise Carter was standing there. I jumped up out of the chair I was sitting and attacked her in a bear hug. “Where did you go? And how did you know what I was thinking?” I asked as I let her go. “Well, when I woke up you weren’t there, so I went and chilled upfront. And I’m psychic, so I can read your mind! Or you just said it out loud. But I like the first idea more, so that’s what I’m going with.” She said with the cutest smile I have ever seen on her face, which made me smile. I swear, she and Niall could be twins; they both eat a lot, they give the best hugs, the best cuddles, their smile is contagious, their laugh is also contagious, they are both care free. It is as if they were made for each other. My smile got even bigger at the thought of how happy they both are when they are together. “We’ll just say you’re psychic.” I said to her while picking her up and taking her to the sofa in the other room. “How’s the foot by the way?” “Its alright. I can’t wait till I can walk on it again though.” She said while I sat her down. The boys must still be in the kitchen. I propped her foot up with so pillows, and took a look. Nothing looked infected. “It doesn't look infected, so that’s good.” I told her. “Okay, what’s the bad news?” She asked. I gave her a confused look. “What do you mean ‘what’s the bad news?’” “Most of the time it’s something good, and something bad.” “Well this time there is no bad news.” I informed her. I stood up from the floor. “Hey, um, why did you want to sleep in my bunk with me last night?” I asked her. “Just a bad dream.” She said while shrugging her shoulders. “Do you would to talk about it?” She shook her back and forth. “To be honest, I don’t really remember it.” Was all she said. I nodded my head in response. “Is there a movie you would like to watch?” I asked changing the topic. I walked over to the where the movies were all sitting. “Um.. Can we watch Toy Story please.” She asked. I smiled and set up the movie. After I put it in the DVD player, I walked over and sat beside her. The movie started to play and not even five minutes later Liam came running into the room. “I HEARD TOY STORY!!!” He yelled, making Carter laugh.
