Three Years Later (Sequel to Remember Me)

PS: If you haven't read Remember Me, it's a crucial must to go back and read since Three Years Later follows on the first book.

"It's been three years. Three years of suffering. Three years of depression. Three years of searching. Where are you?"

After three years, things weren't the same for Liam Payne and those he knew. They've grown distant, wary and no longer themselves. After going and ticking off almost every city in the world, Liam and Louis stopped in California. With the help of a some strangers they meet along the way, it will be a long journey to find. But, every stranger has a secret, confession or dark side. Will Liam and Louis be able to find Makaela? Will Makaela surrender herself to them? Or, has her whereabouts been under their very nose the entire time? 16+

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast



My stare ignored all things around me. I ignored the sound of the wind, the trees and the chirping of the birds. All my eyes were on the house. A peculiar house it was ... And it still is.


You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies



Letting the melodic song take my breath away, I smiled at the sight of the memory. The happiest memory I ever felt. The memory I love. The memory I'll keep always and forever. The sight of the house dawned upon me. It's vintage-style structure made me shiver which always made me wonder why that always happened when I'm near this particular house. It seems as if time didn't want me near this house.



But you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go



Time isn't on my side. I mean, I just lost my love; Makaela and she has to be here in this house. But, no one was home. No lights were on, the gate to the front door's closed and the lawn looked dead. She couldn't have been here I thought. It left me wondering if she wanted to be found and if she ever wanted to be found. I wasn't sure. It led me to believe to turn back and drive home but for some odd reason, my will-power stood its ground.



Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go


Sighing, I took out my phone and dialed Louis' number.


Receiver: Did you find her?


Liam: No.


Receiver:  Where could she have gone?


Liam: I'm not sure mate. We'll have to try harder.


Receiver: Try harder. Liam, we've looked everywhere. Every country, state and city. Face it, she doesn't want to be found.


Liam: Louis, I'm not going to give up searching her.


Receiver: Mate, I know she means the world to you. Everyone we know, knows you want top keep going but come on, it's been three years and no sight of her. We have to stop searching for her or we'll never find her.


Liam: Louis, she is your sister and for a fact she could be hurt or worse ... Dead.


Receiver: Liam, don't come up with stupid conclusions. Look, we'll stop searching for her for a while. I'm gonna bounce. Also, I'll book us a flight to Australia again later tonight because I think we haven't looked everywhere before we left.


I looked around and saw the sun had almost gone down and sighed.


Liam: Fine. But, I'm gonna keep on searching.


I hung up before Louis could even respond. I wasn't in the mood to hear his response anyway. I sigh in defeat and began to make my way back home. Driving at night isn't the best; especially since I'm not really used to driving at night. I mean, I wasn't going to search for Makaela at night when she's nowhere to be found.


Three years of no contact. Nothing. After all we've been through her only objective was to disappear off the face of the earth. I feel as if my heart has broken into a million pieces and never to be fixed unless Makaela's shadow, figure or face appears to make me smile. Turning on the radio and hearing my favorite song when i used to be with the lads; goofing around and having fun.


So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself, and I
Didn't know I was lost


Funny enough, my favorite song happened to be the song that is currently happening right now. I need to wake up. Driving to the petrol station to fill up. Once finished and paid, I get back in and nearing my journey back home. I realized that even if I find Makaela, she may not want to come back home; her real home.


I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands

Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don't have any plans

Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes

Life's a game made for everyone
And love is a prize


So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself, and I
Didn't know I was lost


I sung along feeling a bit calmer than usual which I didn't question. I didn't have to. I was under a lot of stress, the amount of pressure to find Makaela and reckless sleeps; no less. As if my night could've gotten any better, I see a red convertible parked near my house.





I mentally questioned to find out who owned the car. As I drive up to my driveway and parking my car, I get out and close the door, locking the car and turned to see a shadow in front of me. The figure stood there smirking at me. Confused as if it was a friendly or flirtatious manner, I ignored it and clenched my fists. This was someone I thought I had finished a long time ago. Seems to me she wants more. But I'm not going to give it to her. However, it's not why she's  here that set me frozen in place, it's what she said.





I wasn't really sure what I said either came out as a question but I was shocked to see her. "Ashley Crawford?" The angelic face turned to look at me and showed a sweet but sickly smile towards me. "Hi Liam, long time I see. I'll make you a deal:  I'll tell you where your beloved Makaela is if you do as I say."





Liam: Amee, have you seen where my phone went?


Amee: Nope.


Liam: Louis, have you got my phone?


Louis: Nope.


Liam huffs and walks off to continue to find his phone. Louis walks over to Amee and smirks, showing her Liam's phone in his hand. Amee frowns but plays along with it. Liam comes back and doesn't notice that Louis shoves the phone back inside his pocket as if nothing happened.


Liam: If you guys see it, let me know okay?


Louis and Amee nodded. Just then, Liam's phone ringtone set off.



I'm so fancy
You already know
I'm in the fast lane
From L.A. to Tokyo
I'm so fancy
Can't you taste this gold?
Remember my name, 'bout to blow



Amee began to laugh at Liam who was red-faced and looked horrified. Louis shifted uncomfortably as he tried to turn off the ringtone but was unsuccessful when Liam saw him.


I said baby, I do this, I thought that, you knew this
Can't stand no haters and honest, the truth is
And my flow retarded, they speak it, depart it
Swagger on super, I can't shop at no department
Better get my money on time, if they not money, decline
And swear I meant that there so much that they give that line a rewind
So get my money on time, if they not money, decline
I just can't worry 'bout no haters, gotta stay on my grind


Louis then started to dance as Amee watched in amusement.


Now tell me, who that, who that? That do that, do that?
Put that paper over all, I thought you knew that, knew that
I be that I-G-G-Y, put my name in bold
I been working, I'm up in here with some change to throw



Liam: You have my phone!?!?


Louis then began to laugh.


Louis: Yep. And, changed your ringtone too!


Liam looked really mad and began to chase Louis around the set with Louis shouting "I love carrots and Kevin" over and over.



I didn't want to go into too much detail with the first chapter because more will be explained in future chapters.


Sorry that I had to end it with a cliffhanger again but, Three Years Later officially starts in Chapter 2.
