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.


25. A Thousand Years Pt. 2

***Liam's POV***

"Apology accepted." She grinned.

The two words I had waited  to hear for six months. I finally heard them. The closet door opened and Louis, Niall, Harry and Zayn stood there with smirks.

"I told you it would work." Niall grinned.

"So it was you!?" Beth gasped.

She walked up to Niall. "You know I would slap you but... Niall, thank you. You brought my best friend back."

She pulled him into a hug.

"You two needed each other Beth." Niall told her. "Also, you helped me get Emily. All I'm doing is repaying you."

"You are amazing Niall." She grinned.

The six of us walked back to our seats where Miranda, Em, El and Perrie looked at Beth and I with raised eyebrows.

"I won't even ask. You can see it in their eyes. The twinkle in their eyes is back." Miranda grinned.

Beth and I hugged each other. "We're back." I grinned.

We took our seats. "By the way Beth, that performance, holy crap, it was amazing." El told Beth.

"It really was." I told her

Beth blushed. "Thank you."

"That was the first time you didn't cry after A Thousand Years, wasn't it?" I asked.

She thought for a moment. "Oh my god it was. My mind must have told me that I was going to have you back."

"It so nice to have you back." I whispered.

We watched the show. Finally the category for Best New Artist came. Katy Perry was presenting the award.

***Beth's POV***

"And the nominees for best new artist are Nicholas Douglas...Lucy Mitchell... Elizabeth Ashton... and Kevin Locher. And the Moon Man goes to..." Katy said.

I bit my lip. Liam took my hand and squeezed it.

"Elizabeth Ashton!" Katy grinned.

I leaped out of my seat and everyone began hugging me. I made my way up to the stage and accepted the Moon Man. I walked up to the microphone and looked down at the award for a second.

"Wow... thank you so much. Thank you to everyone at Syco Records, um... my friends, One Direction who helped me get where I am today. and my best friend Liam Payne for being the inspiration for many of my songs. Thank you so so much." I grinned.

I walked off the stage and Grace hugged me.

"I knew you would get it." She told me.

I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. She congratulated me again and I made my way back to my seat. Everyone congratulated me too.

"You really are the best new artist if not the best in this room." Liam whispered.

"I'm not the best in this room." I smirked.

"You're up there though." He grinned.

"Hey Beth!" Louis said.

I faced him. "Now all you have to do is beat us in Best New Album."

"May the best one win." I grinned.

After a few more categories Best New Album finally came. Justin Timberlake was presenting this one.

"The nominees fror Best New Album are... Justin Bieber, Believe... One Direction, Take Me Home... Elizabeth Ashton, Red...Cher Lloyd, Sticks and Stones... and Ed Sheeran, Plus." Justin Timberlake said.

I was up against the boys, Justin Bieber, Cher Lloyd and Ed Sheeran. There is no way I am going to win this one.

"And the Moon Man goes to... wow second time tonight... Elizabeth Ashton for Red!" Justin said.

My hands flew over my mouth. How the hell did I win that?!

"You beat us! Congrats!" Louis grinned.

They each gave me quick hugs before I went up again to accept my second award. I held the heavy silver award in my hand and grinned.

"Wow okay, I did not expect this at all. Thank you again to everyone at Syco Records and my friends. Thank you to all of my fans and my tour staff. Thank you to everyone who voted for me." I grinned.

I walked off stage and made my way back to my seat. When the award show ended all of us walked back to the limo.

"Congratulations. You got two awards at your very first award show." Liam grinned.

"Yeah wait till the Brit Awards she's going to get tons." Miranda smirked.

"I still can't believe it myself." I smiled.

"Well Beth, you did make a fantastic album. Now only do your songs have meaning, but they tell a story." Zayn said.

"Thanks Zayn." I grinned. 

We rode in silence for a while. I found myself drifting off to sleep, my head slowly falling onto Liam's shoulder. Finally I fell into dream land.

***Liam's POV***

Beth's head was rested on my shoulder as he slept and I couldn't help but smile.

"Its good to have you back Liam." Harry said.

I looked up and saw all the other girls asleep too. Only the lads and I were awake.

"I didn't know I left." I said.

"You weren't the same after you two broke up. The old Liam is back though." Niall told me.

"Well I guess thats what love does to you huh?" I asked, looking down at Beth.

"How'd you do it Liam? How were you able to pull through it. I sure wouldn't have been able to if Mir and I broke up." Harry said.

"It was the hope that I would get her back I guess. Thats probably why I completely broke when I found out that she had moved on." I sighed.

"Well, the next step is to get you two back together." Zayn told me.

I nodded. The limo soon pulled into the bus lot and Beth stirred.

"Are we back yet?" She asked in a sleepy voice.

"Yeah. Do you want me to take you back to your bus?" I asked.

She shook her head. "I want to sleep on your bus."

I nodded and we all walked over to our bus. Louis was carrying a still sleeping El and Harry was carrying Miranda. Emily and Perrie had woken up.

"I don't have any clothes to change into. I'll be right back." Beth said.

I pulled her back. "You can borrow mine."

She grinned. "Are you sure?"

"More than sure." I told her.

I found a pair of grey sweats and my Jack Wills hoodie. I handed them to her and she went into the bathroom to change. As soon as she came out I grinned at her. I had just changed into my sweats.

"I missed having you wear my clothes." I whispered.

"I missed the smell of your clothes. The sweatshirt  I had of yours lost its scent. I think i'm going to give it back and steal this one." She said, looking down at the sweatshirt she was wearing.

"What so I can make it smell like me again?" I smirked.

She nodded. She hugged me one more time. "Goodnight Liam."

"Goodnight Bethie." I replied with a smile.

She walked over to the lounge where she had a pillow and blanket and I walked to my bunk. I laid my head on my pillow and hugged my other pillow. I laid there for a while with a smile on my face. I found that I couldn't go to sleep so I just laid there for an hour, clutching my pillow. I heard shuffling around in the lounge and my bunk curtain opened, revealing Beth's beautiful eyes. She smirked at me holding my pillow.

"May I replace that pillow?" She asked.

I threw the pillow out of my bunk and grinned. "Gladly."

She grinned and slipped in next to me. I wrapped my arms around her waist and she buried her head into my neck. Finally I fell asleep. This night was different from the previous nights though. Tonight, I fell asleep with the girl I truly loved with all my heart in my arms. It felt... perfect.
