A Thousand Years (Sequel to Red)

The moment you realize that in the blink of an eye you have lost everything, its the most terrifying moment of my life. As I drive away from not only my friends, but my family the recent events played in my head. Its hard to believe that in an instant you can looses everyone important to you. Here I am, driving away from the people who picked me up when I fell down and got me where I am today. The people whom I called my family.


24. A Thousand Years Pt. 1

***Beth's POV***

We walked into the hotel and I walked into the room where Stephanie was set up. The boys went to the room that Lou was in and the girls followed me. Stephanie smiled when we walked in.

"Alright, I will be getting the five of you ready. Lets start with Emily." Steph said.

"Okay." Emily smiled.

Emily sat down in the chair in front of the mirror and Steph began doing her makeup. She did her hair next. When she was done she handed Emily a dress and shoes and Emily went to go change in the bathroom. She went to work on Miranda next. Finally after El and Perrie she got to me.

"So I heard that you and Brandon broke up this morning." Steph said as she did my makeup.

"Yeah. We agreed to be friends though." I told her.

"Well thats good."Steph smiled

Finally we were all ready. Emily was wearing this www.polyvore.com/emily/set?id=71112922, Miranda was wearing this www.polyvore.com/danielle/set?id=71120431, Perrie looked like this www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=78125665, El looked like this www.polyvore.com/lt/set?id=70871811, and I was wearing this weheartit.com/entry/52627085 with this www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=78127161. We all gaped at ourselves and smiled.

"We look hot." El smirked.

I smirked. "Of course we do."

"I have to go, the limo that the rest of my band is in is here. I'll see you all there." Perrie smiled.

"Bye Perrie! We love you!" Miranda called as Perrie walked out.

"Love you girlies too!" Perrie called over her shoulder.

Grace and Paul walked into the room, the boys behind them. The boys just stared at us, their eyes wide, jaws dropped.

"Oh shut your mouth, you'll catch flies." El smirked.

"Wow... you all look so... just... words cannot describe it." Harry said.

The other boys nodded in agreement. 

"Alright, Beth, you will be sharing a limo with the boys. However, you will walk the red carpet before them so you need to get out first." Grace informed me.

"Alright." I replied.

"Don't forget, you're performing first so you need to get backstage as soon as the show starts so you can change into your performance outfit. Your seat is right next to the boys." Grace told me.

"Okay." I said.

"I understand that Beth and you boys are nominated for the same award so, let the best singer win." Grace smiled.

We walked outside and got into the limo. As the limo drove I took out my phone and went on twitter.

@ElizabethAshton: Off to the VMAs! Wish me luck!

"So, Mir, El and Em, who do you think will win best new album? Us or Beth?" Harry asked them.

Miranda lightly hit Harry's arm.

"You can't ask us to choose between our best friend and our boyfriends!" She said.

"But you had to vote for one of us." Louis grinned.

"Did we?" El smirked.

"Yep." Niall said.

"We're not telling you who we voted for." Emily smiled.

The ride was silent for a while. I saw Niall whispering something to Louis.

"So Beth, are you writing a new album yet?" Emily asked.

"Yeah." I told her.

"What are some of your songs called?" El asked.

"Catch Me, Forever and Always, Skyscraper, Better Than Revenge and The Call." I told her.

"Can you sing one later?" Niall asked.

I shrugged. "If you want."

The limo finally pulled up to the red carpet.

"Ready for your first red carpet?" Louis asked.

"As i'll ever be." I told him before the limo door opened and I stepped out.

I walked out onto the red carpet and the flashes went off. I posed for pictures and answered a few questions before heading inside. I waited for the boys, Mir, Em and El to walk the crimson carpet. As soon as they reached my we walked into the large auditorium and took our seats in the 5th row. Perrie joined us soon with her band, Little Mix. I was sitting next to Liam. Of course Louis had told us our seating arrangements.

"Alright. I have to go get ready for my performance." I told everyone.

"Good luck!" Miranda ginned.

"She doesn't need luck." Liam said, not looking at me.

I was silent for a moment. "I'll see you guys soon." I smiled.

I walked backstage where Grace pulled me into a dressing room. Stephanie was already in there and she handed me a beautiful white dress.

"So we're keeping your hair and makeup. You just need to put the dress on." Steph told me.

"Alright." I replied, accepting the dress.

I walked into the bathroom and slipped it on. It was absolutely beautiful. www.polyvore.com/cgi/set?id=72920449. I walked out and Steph and Grace grinned.

"You look beautiful." Grace told me.

"Thank you."I replied.

"Alright. Put these shoes on and heres your microphone." She said, handing me a pair of sparkly silver strap heels. 

She handed my my silver rhinestone covered microphone and I took one last look at myself in the mirror.

"You'll knock Liam's socks off." Grace smirked.

I whirled around on my heel and faced Grace.

"Grace!" I gasped.

"I'm pretty sure she already did with that dress you were just wearing." Steph told me.

"You two sound like the girls." I groaned.

"Thats a bad thing? Beth, we may be your manager and stylist but we are still in our twenties. We're not exactly old hags." Steph laughed.

I rolled my eyes."Whatever."

We walked out of the dressing room and I took my place, ready to go on. The stage was set up with a long, wide staircase that I would walk down when the music started. Once at the bottom I would continue my dance on the flat stage.

"Ready?" Grace whispered.

I nodded. The music to A Thousand Years began to play and I took my first step onto the stair. As I descended the stairs I looked out into the audience. I began to sing.

"Heart beats fast colors and promises, how to be brave, how can I love when I'm afraid to fall, watching you stand alone, all of my doubt suddenly goes away some how..." I sang as I reached the bottom stair. "One step cloooser." I began my dance with the rest of the dancers. "I have died every day waiting for you, darling don't be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years, I'll love you for a thousand more. Time stands still, beauty in all she is, I will be brave, I will not let anything take away whats standing in front of me. Every breath, every hour has come to this. One Step closer. I have died every day waiting for you, darling don't be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years, I'll love you for a thousand more. And all along I believed I would find you, time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years, I'll love you for a thousand moreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. One step closer. One step closer. I have died every day waiting for you, darling don't be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years, I'll love you for a thousand more. And all along I believed I would find you, time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years, I'll love you for a thousand more." I sang. The end music kept playing and the lights slowly dimmed and as soon as the song ended it was completely black.

I found my way backstage. I saw Louis and Harry walking over to me.

"What are you guys doing back here?" I asked.

"You need to come with us." Louis grinned.

I gave them a funny look. "Um okay..."

They both took hold of one of my hands and pulled me towards a door. Harry opened the door and Louis lightly pushed me in.

"Wha- Louis!" I said frantically.

I tried turning the door handle but it was locked.

"Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles I am going to chop your balls off if you don't let me out." I told them.

The door opened swiftly and another person was shoved inside.

"Now talk." I heard Niall say.

In the dim light of the closet I could make out the figure of a tall boy with a quiff. I immediately knew why I was in this closet.

I groaned. "Who's idea was this. I am going t find out and I am going to kill them!"

"Beth, they're not going to let us out until we talk." Liam sighed.

I  turned to face him. "Look just because I have been a bit nicer doesn't mean I don't hate you Liam. You fucking broke my heart and look at you, you act like its nothing!" I snapped.

"I don't act like its nothing Beth! Every single day since I lost you I have cried myself to sleep. I hug my pillow at night because you aren't there. Everything in our house reminds me of you! Every time I even look at certain thinks I break down in tears because it reminds me of you! Thats what love does to me. And did you even get all the letters I sent!? I sent one every single day since you left." He told me.

Although it was dark I could see the tears in his eyes.

"You cheated on me Liam. You made me believe that you loved me then I walk in on you snogging your ex! What am I supposed to think?! Is this a game to you?!" I asked.

"No Beth! Love isn't a game. I only did it because I absolutely had to! It was to protect you!" He told me.

"Protect me from what?! Falling in love?! News flash Liam, I already did and guess what happened?! I got broken!" I told him harshly.

"She threatened me okay?! Danielle threatened me!" Liam said.

"What do you mean she threatened you?!" I hissed.

"She had your fathers bail money. She was going to bail him out if I didn't. If your father gets out of prison he would find you and he would kill you. She gave me the option of you being dead or brokenhearted. I can't live without you. Even if you hate me, its better than you being dead. I did it to protect you." He whispered the last part.

I was silent. I was stunned. Shocked. I didn't know what to say.

"I- Liam...why didn't you tell me?" I whispered.

"If I told anyone she would bail him out. I wasn't going to take that risk." He told me.

"Why did you take so long to tell me this?" I asked softly.

"You never really gave me the time of day." He mumbled.

We were both silent. Our eyes glistened in the dim light from tears. I looked into his eyes and he looked into mine.

"I miss you Beth." He whispered. "I would give anything to have you back."

"I miss you too Liam."I whispered back. "But I'm not exactly ready for a relationship yet."

"If you'll take me back as your best friend... I would be more than happy." He said softly.

I gave him a hug. He slowly wrapped his arms around me and I wrapped my arms around him. I missed him, his hugs, his smell, everything. I also felt sparks just at the feel of his touch.

"Best friends." I whispered.

I could tell he was grinning.

"Hey Beth?" He whispered.

"You mean Bethie?" I smirked.

"Bethie?" He grinned.

"Yes?" I asked.

"I promise to never intentionally hurt you. You mean to much to me." He whispered. "Will you accept my apology?"

I grinned up at him. "Apology accepted."
