Kerrigan Brady just wanted to meet her favourite band. Not like this. Never like this.


1. -Prologue-

“Hello, love,” Harry smiled, holding his hand out for the poster I’d brought along especially for this. He looked as tired as I was, but he didn’t let it show as he scrawled his name across his own chest, right beside Louis and Zayn, whom I’d already had a three second conversation with.

“It’s lovely to meet you,” I beamed, cheeks heating up when Harry winked up at me. Cheeky swot, he knew exactly what reaction he could pull, didn’t he? I started to move along as he slid my poster across to Liam, but stopped at the last second as the girl in front of me was still chatting, though the security guys were trying to move her along. I looked back at Harry, who just shrugged at me like ‘what can you do?’ which only made me roll my eyes. I was about to say something, but was jostled along as the line started moving again.

Behind me, in the crowd of girls who had already gotten their autographs, somebody screamed. Loud. It was a different kind of scream entirely- and then two loud popping sounds rose above the crowd. My heart skipped a beat; that wasn’t an innocent sound. That was gunfire. The screaming changed now, this wasn’t fans screaming in excitement, this was something else, something more dangerous. I spun around to see what was going on, to see where I should run; a man shoved his way to the front of the crowd, something long and black glinting in his hand.

He raised his arm towards the table behind me, his eyes locked on somebody to my left. The crowd erupted in panic as it became obvious what he was going to do, who he was aiming for; the security guards rushed to stop him, fighting their way through the dense crowd. They’d never spot him in time, even if they did, they’d never reach him.

His face hardened, his arm steadied.

My mind blanked as I felt myself moving.


Something thudded into my side, feeling like a full-force kick in the gut. I stumbled, my hand reaching to soothe the pain on my hip; it came away wet, coated in red. Around me, the screaming faded… and silence rang in my ears as I hit the ground with a lifeless thud.
