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


Toy Story had just ended, so I took a look around the room. Everyone was in the room now, either sitting on the floor or on the other couch. Harry stood up and walked over to the DVD player and removed the disk and put it back where he had originally grabbed it from. "What movie now?" He asked turning towards us. Louis opened his mouth to say something but Niall yelled at him. “NO SCARY MOVIES LOUIS!” Is what he yelled at Louis. Lou just closed his mouth and glared at Niall. I rolled my eyes and stood up. I walked over to where the movies laid lifelessly in the bins. Harry walked back over to the sofa, leaving me to do the movie stuff. I heard people moving around behind me, but didn’t think anything of it. "Let's watch Lady and the Tramp!" Niall yelled. I looked over my shoulder at him and he gave me a big smile. I went through the DVDs till I came across the movie. I pulled it out and placed the disk into the player. I turned back around and saw what all the movement was. Everyone had switched places except Niall, he was the only one that was still in the same spot. The only place that was left for me to sit was next to Niall, which I did not complain about. I walked over to the spot and sat down beside him. I pulled my legs up on the sofa next to my body. Harry pressed the play button on the remote, the movie started playing and I rested my head on his chest. Niall petted my head and wrapped his arms around me. Half way through the movie I felt myself starting to doze off.


Niall’s POV


Carter fell asleep with her head on my chest in the middle of the movie. ‘What’s up with her falling asleep when we cuddle!?’ I asked myself, but I couldn’t help but smile. I kissed her head and rubbed her arm. I looked back up at the TV and continued watching the movie. I felt like someone was watching me and Carter so I looked over at the other lads and saw that they were all looking at us. I glared at them and they turned their heads back to the TV screen, except Louis. He kept his head where it was, which was looking at me. He made a heart using his hands then pointed at me. I looked down at Carter with my face burning up.


The Movie was just about over. I must say I wasn’t paying that much attention to it. Instead of watching the movie I was watching Carter. She looked so peaceful like nothing in the world could bother her. I shook her shoulder, trying to wake her up but in a nice way. Her eyes slowly opened and revealed those hazel eyes that I love. “Hey, the movie is almost over.” I whispered into her ear. She gave a small smile then cuddled back into my chest. “Why do you alway fall asleep while cuddling with me?” I asked her. “Because.” She replied. “Because why?” “Just. Because.” “Tell me.” I whined, which earned a giggle from her. “Because you’re like a big teddy bear. You’re just so warm and cuddly!” She smiled at me then hid her face in my chest. Which made me chuckle a little.


The movie came to an end and everyone stood up except Carter and I, we remained on the sofa. After a few minutes Carter stood up from the couch and stuck her hand out to me. “What?” I gave her a confused face. “I know you want to get something to eat.” She answered. “No! I want to cuddle!” I told her trying to pull her back down beside me, but she jumped back a little so I couldn’t grab her. “Niall! I could hear your stomach growling!” She grabbed my hand and started to pull me up. “Come on!” She said while  pulling me all the way up to my feet. I towered above her while she was standing inches below me. She started to pull me toward the kitchen, but I pulled her back. She hit my chest with an umf. I wrapped my arms around her waist. “Niall.” She whined at me. “Cat.” I whined back at her. She playfully rolled her eyes at me. “Come on Niall, I know you want food.” She said trying to get out of my arms. It was my turn to roll my eyes at her. “Fine.” I said. I picked her up and threw her over my shoulder. “What the! NIALL!” She yelled. She started hitting my back with her hands and also started kicking her legs. She soon calmed down and stopped kicking. I felt as her arms crossed on my back and just went with it. I walked to the other room and walked over to the fridge. I took out the orange juice out and grabbed a glass. “Does anyone want to help me and not just watch?” I heard Carter ask the lads that are behind me. “Really guys!?” I heard her say which made me chuckle. “Let me guess, they’re not going to help you.” I said while pouring the juice into the glass. “I give up.” I felt her head hit my back. Everyone started laughing at her. I put the lid back on the orange juice and put it back in the fridge. I grabbed the glass and turned to the boys. “When are we going to get there? I’m bored!” I complained. I felt a punch on my back. Everyone stated laughing a little. “We should be there in a few hours… I think…” Liam said. “UGH!” I groaned at no one really. “So, when are you planing on putting me down?” Carter asked from over my shoulder. “Um, I don’t know. Once we get there?” I said. “GRRRR. Fine. Where are we driving to?” “Are next show is in Tampa Florida.” Zayn answered. “Okay. How long have we been driving for?” “Um about five hours?” Louis answered this time. “Okay we’ll be there in about five hours then.” Carter said. “How do you know that?” Harry asked. “My dad and I would go to Miami sometimes for vaca, and we would stop for the night in Tampa.” She said. “Vaca?”  “You know, vacation. Oh um what do you guys call it? OH! Holiday! I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO COME TO ME!” She yelled.


~Skipping The Rest Of The Car Ride~


“We’re here Niall. Will you put me down now?” Carter asked. I still had her over my shoulder. “No, you are going to stay on my shoulder till we get off the bus!” I said. “Niiaaalll!” She whimpered. I caved and sat her down onto her feet. She stood there, looking up at me with a confused face. I gave her a confused look back which made her laugh. “Thought you said you were going to keep me on your shoulder till we got to the stadium.” She said to me, putting her hands on her hips. I just smiled at her.


The bus came to a stop and after a few minutes later Paul appeared on the bus. “LADS! WE’RE HERE!” He yelled throughout the bus. We all made our way off the bus and heard fans screaming at us. I grabbed Carters hand. “Let’s go greet some fans.” I said. We walked over to the fans hand and hand. The fans started screaming even louder, if that’s was possible, as we got closer. I felt Carter tense up a little. I turned my head to her and she looked over at me. “Don’t worry princess, they’ll love you.” I said to her. We got up to the crowd and started talking with some of the girls. One girl yelled asking if we were a couple. I looked over at Carter to see her look down at the ground with a small smile on her face. I pulled her closer to me and wrapped my arm around her. “Do you want to tell them?” I whispered in her ear. She looked up at me. “You tell them.” She whispered back. I then turned back to the fan that had asked the question. “Yeah, we are a couple.” I told them, as my face got hot. I was honestly quite worried to see their reaction. They all started yelling even louder. Harry ran over to us, putting his arm around Carter and whispering something into her ear. She nodded her head and he waved at all the fans. “Sorry everyone but I need to take these two!” Harry yelled to the sea of screaming girls. We waved at everyone then headed back towards the arena. The second we walked through the door Lou grabbed our arms and pulled us into hair. Lou did my hair up into a quiff. I looked over in the mirror at Carter and saw her playing with Lux while waiting, which made me smile at how cute the both of them looked.


Carter’s POV


I was playing with Lux while Lou did Niall’s hair. Harry told me earlier that Lou would do my hair, since I need a haircut. Lou finished doing Niall’s hair and Lux ran over to Lou. Niall got up and came over to me. Once he was standing in front of me, he grabbed my hand and pulled me up. We walked around hand and hand until we came to the stage. We walked out onto the stage and I looked out to where all the seats were, it just amazed me that all these seats where going to be filled up.


It came time for the boys to go out on stage, and I was watching them jump around and sing. I felt someone tap amy shoulder and I turned around and saw Lou with Lux in her arms. “Ready for your haircut?” Lou asked me. I nodded my head. I followed her to the dressing room and I took a seat in the chair and Lux ran over to me. I picked her up and sat her on my lap. Lou brushed out my hair and sprayed it down with some water. “How do you want your haircut?” She asked. “Surprise me, but just keep it long enough to put in a ponytail.” I told her. “Haha, okay.” She laughed a little while walking over to the iPod dock and plugging in her iPhone. Music started to pour out of the speakers as she walked back over. She got to work with my hair while Lux sat in my lap playing with my hands. I kept making faces at Lux making her laugh and she would make the face back at me. After about half an hour Lou was done cutting my hair. “Do you want me to blow dry your hair?” She asked me. “No its fine, thank you so much. I love it.” Paul came running into the room and told Lou that they needed her. She asked if I could watch Lux and I, of course, said yes. She ran out of the room with Paul. I turned to Lux. “Do you want to go watch the boys perform?” She nodded her head. I stood up with her in my arms and walked out of the room. We made our way to the side of the stage where the crowd could not see us but you could tell that the boys could see us because they all waved at us. Lux waved back to them then rested her head on my shoulder. The boys came running off the stage for a “costume” change. They quickly changed clothes and were about to run back on stage when Niall ran over to me and pecked my lips before running back. He waved then ran back on stage.


I carried Lux back to the dressing room to see if Lou was back there and needed any help with anything. I walked through the door and saw Lou cleaning up all the hair and make up, placing them in a bag. She looked over at me and Lux then walked over. "I’ll take Lux.” She said while reaching her arms out. I handed Lux over to her. “Can I help with anything?” I asked her. “Yes, can you just put the hair stuff in that bag, it doesn’t have to be done neatly.” I nodded my head and walked over to the hair stuff. I grabbed the bag and started placing the items in the little bag. After I finished doing that I turned to Lou and handed her the bag. “Do you want me to do anything else?” “Oh no I got to take these two bags out to the bus. Thank you so much love!” She said putting one bag over her shoulder with the other bag in her hand and Lux on her hip. She walked out of the room and started to make her way to the buses. I walked back out the dressing room door. I walked back over to where I was standing before with Lux and looked out at all the screaming girls. I looked back at where the boys were standing and saw Niall looking at me. I smiled and waved to him. He smiled and waved back to me. I looked down at the ground with my cheeks becoming an even brighter red color. I listened to the music with my head down, while swaying back and forth a little. The music came to a halt and I heard the boys talking. I looked up to see that they were now doing the twitter questions. “I can’t wait to see what they will have to do at this show.” I thought to myself. So far at every show they have done someone tweets asking them to do something super funny. The boys answered the questions but I was not paying that much attention. I kind of drifted off into my own little world, my head was back down looking at the ground and I was swaying back and forth once again. One question though did catch my attention very well making me look up at the boys. The question was “Who all in the band is not single?” Louis, Zayn, and Liam put their hands up right away. I looked over at Niall and he slowly put his hand up. “So Niall, do you want to tell us who your girl is?” Harry asked him while nudging his chest. Niall looked at him and Harry pointed at me making Niall look. “Um, give me a minute?” He asked before running off the stage and over to me. He grabbed my hand and looked into my eyes. “Come out on stage with me?” He asked. “Niall I don’t know about that.” “I’ll be right beside you the whole time. Please!” He begged. I nodded my head and he kissed my cheek. We walked back out on stage. All the boys gave me a quick hug then went back to where they were sitting. “Everyone this is my beautiful girlfriend, Carter!” Niall said into his mic. “And also my sister. So don’t hurt her Niall.” Harry said making the crowd laugh. Niall wrapped his arm around me and pecked my cheek before resting his head on top of mine. “Should I go backstage now?” I whispered to Niall. “No! Stay till after the twitter questions.” He whispered back to me. “Okay.” I said back to him. They continued with the twitter questions and made me join in on the things they had to do! But I didn’t care I just laughed at myself. The questions came to an end. I waved to the crowd and started making my why backstage. Niall stopped me and pecked my lips before whispering in my ear. “See you after the show.” I smiled at him and he smiled back. I walked back stage and over to where I was before.


The consort was now over and I was sitting outside the dressing room door while the boys got changed out of their sweaty clothes. The door opened making me fall back into the room onto someones feet. I looked up to see Louis about to start laughing, but I beat him to the punch and started laughing. I was laughing so hard that there wasn’t any sound coming out of my mouth. Louis fell to the floor and started laughing just as hard as I was. We where on the floor rolling around laughing our heads off, and I am sure that people that walked by us that we were crazy, but you know what I did not care. Those people can think what the want about me, it is not going to make me change me. After a few more minutes of rolling on the floor laughing, we started to calm down. We laid on our back still chuckling every now and then. Liam came over and stood over us. “You guys are so weird.” He said shaking his head at us. “You’re just jelly because you’re not like us.” I said up to him. “Jelly? Really? I don’t think so.” Liam said to me. “You sure? Even a little?” Louis said looking at Liam. Liam then hung his head down low and walked away. I jumped up onto my feet and ran up behind Liam, I hopped onto his back. He looked over his shoulder at me and chuckled. “You are very weird.” He said walking over to where he had put his sweaty clothes. “I may be weird but you LUV MEEEE!!!” I said to him. I saw him roll his eyes at what I said. He started to chuckle a little. I got off Liam’s back and ran back over to Louis who was still laying on the ground. I don’t know where all this energy came from, but I am running around like crazy.


Paul walked into the room and told us that we needed to get going. Louis and I jumped up to our feet then ran over to the sofa, jumping over the back of the couch. We stayed behind the sofa like no one had seen us. I heard Paul sigh along with the others boys. Paul ran up behind Louis and picked him up throwing him over his shoulder. Niall came up behind me and picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, just like Paul did to Louis. He carried me out to the bus and put my feet down on the floor. The second I got my balance I ran to the back of the bus and found a place to hide, were I could see them but they wouldn’t be able to see me. I heard footsteps coming forwards the room. “What the?” I heard Niall say. I was trying my hardest not to laugh or move. The room fell silent and I couldn’t see where Niall had gone, but I didn’t dare move. A minute later I felt hands grabbing my waist, making me jump, and pulled me up to my feet. I could tell that it was Niall because after I had jumped a little he started chuckling lightly. Niall turned me around and I was met with his bright blue eyes. Niall looked back into my hazel eyes. “You’re so beautiful.” He said to me,as my cheeks turned a rosy pink. I looked down at the floor just for him to put his hand under my chin and lift you my face, making my eyes met his again. “Don’t look away. It's cute when you blush.” He whispered while leaning his forehead on mine. The gap between us was closing in delightfully. His lip lightly brushed over mine, making chills run down my arms. His gentle fingers smoothed down my sides and squeezed tightly as he leaned in farther in the kiss. His fingers made their away towards my backside, and he pulled himself closer to me than ever before. My arms, as if they had a mind of their own, flung themselves around his neck. His lips felt so delicate and pleasant, like a piece of china glass, and I couldn't help but smile. Our heads tilted to the right as we leaned in so close that it felt as if sparks were frolicking around our bodies. We both barely pulled away, his fingertips tightened around my backside, and leaned back in without hesitation. It seemed as if we were the only ones on the Earth, time stood frozen. I stared into the depths of his crystal eyes, and with gentle ease, I closed mine.


The move, getting a new brother, new mom and sister, maybe it’s what I needed all this time. People to be around me all the time that loved me. I’m happy with the out come and can’t wait for life to continue on down the path.
