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.


42. Follow In Our Footsteps

***Beth's POV***


"Liam! Come on, we need to go. We can't miss our flight!" I called from downstairs.

Today we were leaving for Aspen and we would be spending a week in a house that we rented. Liam lumbered downstairs, his bags in his hands.

"I swear, you take longer than most girls do." I laughed.

"I was making sure I didn't forget anything." He told me.

We walked outside and got into the car. We would be meeting everyone at the airport. As we drove the radio was on and Fall began to play.

"Well let me tell you a story, about a boy and a girl. He fell in love with his best friend, when she's around he feels nothing but joy. But she was already broken and it made her blind. But she could never believe that love would ever treat her right." Liam sang with a smile on his face.

"Did you know that I loved you, or were you not aware. You're the smile on my face, I ain't going no where. I'm here to make you happy, I'm here to see smile and I've been wantin' to tell you this for a long, long while." I sang.

"What's gonna make you fall in love, well I know that you've got your wall wrapped all the way around your heart. Don't have to be scared at all, oh my love, you can't fly unless you let ya, you cant fly unless you let yourself fall." Liam and I sang  in sync.

I smiled at him.

"You know what my favorite fairytale is?" Liam asked.

I shrugged. "I don't know."

"The one where the boy falls in love with his best friend and it turns out she feels the same." Liam smiled.

"I think I know that one. The one where they had been best friends since they were little and finally when they were older the worked up the courage to tell each other how they felt?" I asked.

"Yeah. You know why?" He asked.


"Because the guy finally got the girl." Liam smiled.

We soon arrived at the airport and got out. He and I grabbed our bags and walked inside. After checking our bags in and getting through security Liam and I walked to our gate. To our surprise we were the first ones there.

"And you thought we'd be late." Liam smirked. "We're actually really early."

"We're not early, the others are simply late." I smiled.

He rolled his eyes playfully. "Beth logic."

He and I sat down in the seats outside of the gate. Since it was really early in the morning we were able to watch the sun rise through the large glass window. I was sitting in Liam's lap and he had his arms wrapped around me.

"The sunrise is beautiful." I whispered to Liam.

"I can name something more beautiful though." He told me.

"What?" I asked.

"You." He smiled.

I smiled. "I love you Liam."

"I love you Beth." He replied.

I felt hands cover my eyes.

"Guess who." A voice said from behind me.

"Hey Liam, I think Lou and El are here." I smirked.

"How did you know?!" Louis asked, taking his hands away from my eyes.

"Your hands smell like coconuts." I told him.

"They do?" He asked, his eyebrows raised.

He began smelling his hand.

"Okay Lou, you can stop smelling your hand." I laughed.

Louis and El took their seats next to Liam and I.

"So we saw Zayn and Perrie still going to security and Emily texted me saying that her and Niall are just entering the airport." El said.

"What about Harry and Mir?" I asked.

Louis shrugged. "We haven't heard from either of them for a few days. I think something is up with them."

A few minutes later Zayn and Perrie came over and Niall and Emily followed soon after. We were just waiting for Harry and Miranda. We still had a good three hours before our flight left but we were beginning to get worried. Finally we saw Harry and Mir walking over to us, neither of them looked happy. You could tell Mir had been crying and they both sported a frown on their face. Miranda's eyes were dark and her and Harry seemed to be distant from each other. They walked along side each other but neither of them bothered to show any type of affection. They set their bags down and took their seats next to us. I turned to Liam.

"I'll bring the girls somewhere and we'll talk. You lads talk to Harry. Something is obviously up." I said.

Liam nodded. I stood up.

"El, Perrie, Em and Mir. Lets go to Starbucks. We need to talk about something." I said.

They stood up. "We'll be back soon." I told the boys.

The five of us walked to the Starbucks and ordered our drinks. We sat down at a table and all turned to Mir who still hadn't said a word.

"Mir, whats wrong?" I asked.

She looked up at me with her dark blue eyes. "N-nothing."

"Babe, we saw the tear streaks on your cheeks. Its not nothing." El said.

Mir suddenly burst into tears and I hugged her.

"He cheated on me. Harry cheated on me." She cried.

Our eyes widened. "What?!"

"Wasn't he the one who wanted to kill Liam for cheating on Beth?!" El asked, still shocked.

"With who? What happened?" Emily asked.

"T-Taylor Swift." She said through tears. " I came home from dance practice to find them snogging on the couch. Harry said it was nothing and that he only loved me but I don't know what to think."

"And you stayed? You didn't leave?" Perrie asked.

"Like someone." I sighed.

"N-no. I'm scared. I'm scared because I love Harry so much, more than I have ever loved anything. We're like you and Liam Beth. Hes made it so that I don't even look at other guys. I can't love another guy." She sobbed.

"I hate to say it Mir, I have known Harry since even before he was famous. He has kind of always been a player. But I thought he had changed when he met you. I was actual true love in his eyes." El told her.

Miranda only cried harder. I hugged her tightly.

"Its going to be okay. I know exactly how you feel right now, to walk in on your boyfriend snogging someone else on the couch..." I sighed.

"Thank you Beth. You are the best best friend a girl could possibly ask for." She told me.

"Now, I may be really pissed at Harry right now but... you should always let him tell his side of the story. I had to learn that the hard way." I said.

"Maybe Beth can even work her magic and fix your relationship like she did with Louis and I... twice." El said, giving Mir a small smile.

Mir nodded slowly. We all got up and walked back to our seats. The boys were still huddled and I could see Harry had tears streaming down his cheeks. Liam noticed us and He walked over to us.

"So Harry told you?" I asked him.

He sighed. "Yeah... but there was more to his story kind of like me. Apparently this band has a problem with overly attached ex girlfriends. Taylor came to his flat while Mir was at dance practice and insisted that Harry let her in. When Harry said no she got mad and said she would hurt Mir if he didn't let her in... well you know the rest of the story. Its scary cause its a lot like my story."

I sighed. "Well, I'm going to try and fix their relationship because according to El and Lou, I have the magic touch."

Liam smiled a little. "Because you do."

He kissed me before I walked over to Harry.

"A word?" I asked him.

He stood up and followed me until we were out of ear shot.

"Beth, I know what you're going to say, I am a complete asshole and I'm a douche and I don't deserve her. I know." He said.

"Why would you think I'm going to say that?" I asked.

"Because its what I told Liam when I found him cheating on you." He said, looking at the ground.

He had tears in his eyes. "I love her so much Beth. I would never cheat on her. Taylor just had me pulled into her spell."

"How long had it been going on?" I asked him.

"It was only that one time. I can't loose her. I- I can't. She is my everything." Harry cried.

I pulled Harry into a hug. "Its going to be okay. I promise."

"She hates me. She refuses to speak to me, hold my hand." He told me.

"Harry, if she hated you she would have left. She even told me that she loves you so much and that she's scared because shes never loved anyone like she loves you." I said.

"But she knows my reputation as a player. She thinks she is just another one of my girls." He cried.

"She was just like you, you know. She would kill me if she knew I told you this but... Miranda was sort of a player too.  Mir would date a lot of guys then dump them when she got bored with them. When she met you though, things changed. She loves you so much Harry and I have never seen Mir cry over a guy and I definitely never heard her say that she loves a guy. You're special to her Harry." I told him. 

He and I looked over at Mir who Liam was having a chat with. Tears were streaming down Miranda's face and Liam was doing his best to comfort her.

"Now go get her. Don't wait six months to tell her everything. Tell her now." I said.

Harry hugged me tightly. "Thank you Beth."

I nodded. Harry rushed over to Liam and Miranda. Liam left the two of them to talk and walked over to me. He and I took our seats and he held me tightly.

"It seems that they like to follow in our footsteps. Remember on tour when they were too afraid to tell each other how to feel and now this?" Liam said.

"I agree." I sighed.
