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 was sitting in the arena on my phone while the boys had their before show rehearsal. I felt my phone vibrate in my lap which made snap back to reality since I was in my own little world. I looked down to see a group message from Luke and Blake! I got this stupid grin on my face and I haven’t even open the text. I slid the screen to the side and type in my password. I read over the texts that were popping up onto the screen.

J: Aww, don’t leave me with him!


I put my phone back down on my lap and watched it as kept lightening up, almost never being able to go to a black screen. I looked up at the boys to see them sitting on the stage drinking water. I got up, with my vibrating phone in hand, and walked to the edge of the stage. I rested my arms on the side of the stage and put my chin on my wrists. “Do you wish that you didn’t stay up all night now?” Harry asked walking over to me. “Nope.” I said back to him. “Well I know Niall is regretting it right now.” He said moving a little to the side so I could see Niall. He was laying on his stomach fast asleep. Wow, he can fall asleep really fast. The last time I had looked at him he was bouncing around like crazy. “I guess he isn’t used to it?” I shrugged and smiled. “And you’re used to it?” Harry asked me. “Yeah, I guess I am. Don’t tell my dad though!” I said looking him straight in the eye and holding a vertical finger to my mouth. “I won’t. Don’t worry.” He smiled down at me. “Come on.” He said reaching his hand out to me. I looked up at him then looked at his out reached hand. I took his hand and he pulled me up onto the stage. Once he pulled me up I looked out and saw all of the seats. I turned back around and was tackled to the ground. “LOUIS!” I yelled once I figured out who tackled me. “GET YOUR BIG BUTT OFF OF ME!” I yelled while laughing. “I WILL NEVER GET OFF!” He yelled back. We continued messing round, rolling across the stage. I ended up laying on top of him. I pinned his hands above his head. “Fine, you win this around. But I will get you one of these times.” He said. “Sure you will.” “ Can you get your butt off of me now?” “I will never get off!” I said mimicking him. He just rolled his eyes and pushed me off of him. I rolled over on to my back and started laughing. Louis looked at me then stated laughing along with me.


I sat down beside Niall on the stairs that were on the stage. “How was your nap?” I asked him. “It was nice. But I think I would have slept better if I was warmer.” He said while wiggling his eyebrows. “You should have let me know! I would have gotten you a blanket!” I said back to him trying not to laugh. He looked down at me and I could tell he was planning something. I quickly stood up and turned to face him. “Whatever you are thinking. Don’t.” I said backing up a little bit from him. “What would make you think I was going to do something bad?” He asked standing up. Every step he took forward I would take one back. “Do you think I’m going to hurt you?” He put his hands inside his pocket and smiled. “You couldn’t even hurt a fly, so I really don’t think you would hurt me.” Louis then walked up so he was standing behind Niall. “Now, Louis, I’m not so sure about.” I said looking over Niall’s shoulder. “I guess we will be nice and give you a head start.” Louis said taking a bigger step forward. “GO!” They both yelled at the same time. I turned around and jumped off the stage. I started running through the endless rows of chairs. I looked behind me and saw Louis chasing me. I slowed down and little and started to breathe heavily, hopping that he will think I was getting tired. Louis was just about to grab me when I started running faster again. “Oh I see how it is!” I heard him yell behind me.


I ran into the backstage area. Louis was still chasing me but I was far ahead of him. I ran into a room and closed the door behind me. I took a quick little look around the room when my eyes landed on a door. I ran over to the door and saw it was a bathroom, and not just a little off room bathroom, it was one that went into the hallways. I closed the bathroom door and just in time too, ‘cause I heard the door to the room that I was just in open and close. I ran out of the bathroom and into the hall. Before I took off running again I heard Louis yelling, “CARTER WHERE DID YOU GO?!” Which made me start to laugh. “I’M OUT HERE LOUIS!!” I yelled. I then saw him run out of the room and out into the hallway that I was in. I gave him a little wave then turned on my heels and started running again. I ran around people till I made it to the stage once again. I got to the other side of the stage when Louis came running out. “You know, I would have thought you would have caught me by now since you play soccer.” I said to him as he was bent over trying to catch his breath. “H-how ca-n you not be t-tired?” He asked through is heavy breathing.  "I did track, field, socc-... magic, Louis. Magic." I said sarcastically with furrowed eyebrows and and a smile. I then walked over to him. “Okay, you win this round. Again. But I will get you one of these times.” He said slowly getting his breath back.  I just smiled at him and sat down.


After a few minutes of just relaxing Harry walked out onto the stage. “He- What the heck happened to you mate?” Harry said. Louis just looked at me and we both started to laugh. “Okay clearly I missed something here.” Harry said. “Hey Louis, Lou is looking for you.” Liam said walking out. Louis nodded his head and stood up walking away. I laid down on my back relaxing so more. Harry came over and took a seat beside me. “So tomorrow we have an award show that we have to go to. And you have to come with us.” He said looking down at me. “Do I have to wear a dress?” I asked hopping the answer would be no. But was it? OF COURSE NOT! “Sorry but you have to wear one. Lou will help you get ready and everything.” He said. “Boo.” I whined. “Okay well I guess I’ll go and find Lou. You know talk to her about tomorrow then.” I said standing up. I walked off the stage and started making my way to the dressing rooms.


Once I got to the dressing room I knock on the door. I heard someone yell ‘Come in.’ so I did. When I walked in the room I saw Niall standing there in nothing but his boxers. I covered my eye and heard him chuckle. “Sorry I didn’t know you where getting changed.” I said. I heard him chuckle once again. “It’s okay. I told you, you could come in.” He said without making eye contact. "You can look now." He said after a minute or two. I slowly took my hand away from shielding my eyes to see him with basketball shorts on now. “Have you seen Lou?” I asked him. “Yeah, she said that she was going to come back here. You can chill in here if you want till she comes back.” He said while grabbing a black and gray sweatshirt off the back of a chair. “Okay, thanks.” I said while walking over to the sofa that was in the room. Niall started playing some music and dancing, which just lead me to laugh. Lou soon walked in the room with Lux on her hip. “Ah! Carter! I wanted to talk to you about tomorrow.” She said once she saw me. “Awesome! I wanted to talk to you about tomorrow as well.” I said back to her. She put Lux down onto the floor and she ran over to me. “CAR!” Lux yelled once she reached me. I giggled at the name ‘Car’ I haven’t been called that since Zack and I where little and he couldn’t say Carter. “Hi Lux!” I said moving off the sofa to the floor so I was eye level with her. I played with Lux while Lou put Niall’s hair into a quiff. The door opened and I saw Harry standing there, with my phone in his hand.
