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.


18. Fall

***Beth’s POV***
I sat on the bus eyeing the clock as the sound of the second hand filled my ears. My eyes wandered to the buildings that passed by as the bus moved forward. Everyone else was back in their bunks and I just sat here by myself, alone. I picked up my phone and put the ear buds in and put it on shuffle. Justin Bieber’s voice filled my ears as he sang ‘Fall’. I bit my lip and sighed, this was my ringtone for Liam and mine for him. I hadn’t heard it in months.
‘Well let me tell you a story, about a girl and a boy. He fell in love with his best friend. When she’s around he feels nothing but joy.’ Justin sang.
Throughout the song his face popped up into my mind, his chocolate brown eyes, his perfect smile. I drowned in the memories that flooded my mind.
***Liam’s POV***
I was sitting in the car with the rest of the lads as we made our way to an interview. The radio was on and ‘Fall’ came on.
‘Well let me tell you a story, about a girl and a boy. He fell in love with his best friend. When she’s around he feels nothing but joy.’ Justin sang.
It made me think about Beth. When I was around her, I felt nothing but joy. I continued to look out the window, my head rested up against the glass.
“You’ll get her back mate.” Louis said softly.
I didn’t say anything, I just kept my head rested upon the window. Finally I spoke.
“Even he will treat her better that I did.” I mumbled.
“That’s now true. No one can replace what you two had.” Zayn said softly.
I stayed quiet as Louis pulled into the interview studio. We all got out of the car and rushed inside. Once inside, we were immediately pulled into hair and makeup. Lou smiled as we walked in.
“Someone looks down.” She said, glancing at me.
“Beth got a new boyfriend.” Harry explained.
I shot him a glare. “That’s for the fucking reminder.” I hissed.
They all stared at me in shock. We all stayed silent as Lou did our hair and makeup. The only sound in the room was from an occasional giggle from Lux as she sat on Harry’s lap. Once Lou was done we hurried out and someone clipped microphones to our shirts. A few moments later we were called on stage by the interviewer named Lucy.
“So boys, how are you?” Lucy asked us.
“We’re great.” Louis smiled.
“Good so let me just ask this question to get it out of the way. Who here is single?” She asked.
All of the others kept their hands down as I slowly raised mine.
“Still no girl after your breakup with your previous girlfriend Elizabeth Ashton?” Lucy asked me.
Just the mention of her name brought me heartache. I shook my head.
“No one compares to her.” I mumbled.
“Well apparently she doesn’t feel the same way seeing she has found herself a new man, her drummer, Brandon Taft.” Lucy said with no emotion.
I wanted nothing more than to just explode with all of the emotions rushing through me right now but the only thing I could get out was “I suppose so.”
“According to sources it appears that you boys will be visiting Elizabeth in her last two weeks of tour, what do you think will happen in those two weeks?” Lucy asked us.
“Well, we hope to release the tension between Liam and Beth and at the very least have them be best friends again.” Zayn said.
“Now Liam, you said before that you haven’t found a new girl because no one compares to Elizabeth, what do you mean by that?” Lucy asked me.
“I mean, no one can replace what I felt for her, the memories. Not just the memories from our relationship, the ones from when we were little kids all the way back to the day we met when we were five. You can never really let go of someone that you have loved every single day since the moment you met.” I told her.
“So you could say for you and Elizabeth, it was love at first sight?” Lucy asked.
“Absolutely.” I sighed.
“So boys, tell me, how has Liam been these past few months since the breakup?” She asked the other boys.
Niall nudged my shoulder.
“Want us to tell them the truth?” He whispered in my ear.
I nodded.
“To be honest, Liam isn’t the same without her. He used to be this ‘Daddy Direction’ as the fans would call him but hes changed. He zones out most of the time and I don’t think I’ve heard him sing once since the breakup.” Niall explained.
“Yeah, at just the mention at her name, you can see tears in his eyes. You could almost say that Liam is… well… broken…” Louis sighed.
The words didn’t offend me at all because I knew they were true.
“He needs Beth.” Harry concluded.
“So Liam how do you feel about her moving on?” Lucy asked me.
“I hope shes happy. I hope he makes her happier than I did and treats her like a princess. She deserves the best. I hope he doesn’t break her heart… like I did.” I said, tears in my eyes.
“Alright, well enough about that topic, what about tour? When is your next tour going to be?” Lucy asked.
“We honestly don’t know. We are in the process of writing new songs.” Zayn said.
“Alright so here’s a question for Niall and Harry. How did you meet your current girlfriends, Emily and Miranda?” Lucy asked, obviously oblivious to the answer.
“Well Emily and Miranda were Beth’s best friends back home and while she was still on tour with us, she invited them and I fell for Miranda and Niall fell for Emily.” Harry smiled.
“And how long have you two been together?” Lucy asked.
Harry turned to Niall. “What… like… eleven months?”
“Yeah that sounds about right.” Niall ginned.
“What do Emily and Miranda do?” She asked.
“Emily is a student at the University of London.” Niall said.
“Miranda is a dancer.” Harry smiled.
“So Harry, people used to see you as the player who had a different girl every night. What changed when you found Miranda?” Lucy asked.
I saw Harry smile to himself. “Just everything about her. Shes beautiful, shes smart, shes funny… just everything. I’m not that Harry anymore because I’ve found a girl who compares to no one else. I love her with all my heart.” He smiled.
“Louis, Zayn, how are things going with your girlfriends Eleanor Calder and Perrie Edwards?” Lucy asked.
“Things are going great, incredible actually. I love Eleanor more than anything, in fact, I think shes the one. I’m not saying we’ll be settling down anytime soon but… I’ve never met a girl like her.” Louis ginned.
“It’s the same with Perrie and I. It may be rough with our schedules but we find time to work around them.” Zayn smiled.
“Perrie is currenty on tour with her band, Little Mix, correct?” She asked.
“Yeah. I’m actually flying out on Friday to spend a week with her.” Zayn told her.
“How sweet.” Lucy said. “Well that’s all we have time for today. It was so nice to have you here.”
The interview ended and I found myself rushing to the nearest bathroom. I shut and locked the door behind me and walked over to the sink. I put one hand on either side of the ceramic sink and stared back at the bloodshot eyes that now had tears falling from them. There was a knock on the door.
“Liam, you alright mate?” I heard Niall ask.
I didn’t respond.
“Liam come on. Please come out.” Harry said through the door.
I didn’t listen to them. I just closed my eyes, her smiling, happy face flashed through my mind. She really was like a drug to me, I was already addicted. The only cure; her love.
