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.


5. Forgiveness

***Beth's POV***

The next morning I woke up at around 11:00 am. I lay there a while, looking up at the ceiling, millions of thought running through my mind. I got up and walked into the bathroom. I took a long shower and changed into this after . I walked over to the dresser and picked up my phone and sat on the edge of my bed. I began scrolling through twitter, since the breakup I had gotten quite a bit of hate, saying that I broke Liam's heart. They're wrong. They're so wrong. He not only broke my heart... he shattered it. I looked at all of the hate.

@GraciePayne23: Bitch! You broke Liam's heart! Why don't you just go die. Its not like anybody loves you anyway. Louis only sticks with you because he feels sorry for you! Seriously just die.

@MelMel:  Heres the definition of Elizabeth fucking Ashton: a slutly, bitchy, whore who stole Liam and broke him. A girl who no one loves and is broken and should die because she doesn't matter. Thats why her father abused her right? Seriously, who could stand her for even 5 minutes.

That one stung. How dare she bring up my father. I tear slipped down my cheek and I quickly wiped it away. I put my phone down and walked out of my room. I walked downstairs and walked towards the kitchen.

"Hey Louis can y-" I froze as soon as I saw who was in the kitchen. "What the hell are they doing here Louis?!"

I looked around at everyone. They were all here but Liam.

"Beth please talk to them." Louis sighed.

I glared at all of them. "No Louis! You told me on live television that you wouldn't force me! I thought you were on my side! I guess not!" I yelled.

I ran out of the kitchen but Louis grabbed my arm.

"Elizabeth!" he said sternly.

I spun around. "No Louis! I'm not talking to them! They hurt me! They kept the biggest secret from me!" 

"Yeah! They hurt me too Beth! They kept it from me also! But guess what?! They're our friends and they did it for the best! They wanted you and Liam to be together for as long as you could!" Louis shouted.

"Don't even say his fucking name! It was selfish of them to keep it from us!" I yelled.

"Really?! So you would rather he just break up with you?! They gave you another week to be with him!" Louis shouted.

"I would rather have him tell me than having to walk into our own house to find him snogging some slutty bitch who happens to be his fucking ex girlfriend! I obviously mattered so little to him that he felt he had to cheat on me! I bet he never even loved me! I bet hes jumping for joy right now because i'm out of his damn life!" I yelled.

"He feels exactly the same as you do right now Elizabeth! Hes broken! He misses you and he certainly still loves you!" Louis yelled.

"Bullshit! Stop lying to me Louis! I can't believe I thought you had my back!" I yelled.

"I do have your back! I do! I need you to listen to me! You need to hear their story though! Not Liam's story! Their story! They didn't cheat on you Beth! You can at least give them two minutes of your time!" Louis yelled.

I was silent for at least 30 seconds. "Fine." I whispered.

Louis pulled me into a hug. "I'm sorry for yelling." He whispered.

"Me too." I replied in a soft voice.

"Now please talk to them? For me?" He asked.

I nodded into his shoulder. I followed him back into the kitchen, looking at everyone.

"Explain. Explain why you kept something so important from me?" I asked.

"When we found out, Liam asked us to give him one more week with you. He wanted to make the most of his last week with you because he knew you would break up with him. We put ourselves in his shoes and decided to let him have his week. We didn't know he was still cheating. We assumed that he had stopped after we caught him. And believe me, we gave him hell when we found out. I actually punched him a few times." Harry told me.

"Where and when did you find out?" I asked quietly.

"It was the day Liam went missing. We didn't find him sitting on a bench Beth. We found him snogging Danielle in a bar." Emily told me.

I felt tears in my eyes. "A bar?! He was at a damn bar?!"

They all nodded slowly."He misses you a lot Beth." Niall said quietly.

"What do you mean he misses me?! He wouldn't have cheated on me, apparently numerous times if he even loved me!" I cried.

"Thats Liam's story to tell. If you would just talk to him..." Zayn said.

I shook my head. "I don't want to hear his excuses. There are never any excuses for cheating."

"Well can you at least forgive us?" Miranda asked.

I thought for a moment. "If you guys promise me one thing."

"Anything." Harry said.

"You never keep anything like that from me again. I don't give two shits about what he asks you not to say. Tell me. Especially if he is cheating on me." I told them.

"We promise." Emily said.

I sighed. I held out my arms and they all got out of their seats quickly and hugged me.

"We missed you so much Beth." Miranda cried into my shoulder.

"I missed you guys too." I said.

"Beth?" Perrie asked.


"When you came into the kitchen, you had tears in your eyes. Are you okay?" She asked.

I thought about what the fans had said to me. "Yeah i'm fine."

"No you're not. This isn't just about Liam Beth." Louis said.

"I told you its nothing." I mumbled.

Louis took out his phone and scrolled though it.

"Is it because of what they're saying to you? The so called fans?" He asked.

A tear slipped down my cheek. I nodded. He pulled me into a hug.

"Its just everything. The breakup, loosing my best friend and now your fans are telling me I should go die and that no one loves me." I whispered.

"Beth we love you. Believe it or not Liam loves you. He acts the same way you do. He feels empty and broken." Harry told me.

"Hes punched at least 7 holes in the wall too." Niall said.

"To be fair she smashed a few of her dishes at her house." Louis said.

"You wen't back to your house?" Miranda asked.

I nodded. "Thats where Louis found me."

"Beth, do you think you and Liam will ever get back together?" Zayn asked.

I was silent for a moment. "Doesn't he want Danielle?"

"No. He hates Danielle because she's the reason he doesn't have you." Emily told me.

"I still don't know. He hurt me... a lot. Imagine being best friend with someone and loving them for 14 years. Having to wait 14 years to finally get them and then only a few months later find another girl?" I asked, another tear slipping down my cheek.

"You need to hear his side of the story Beth." Niall sighed.

I shook my head. "I don't want any excuses."

"Hearing him out may make the whole difference in the world." Harry said.

"I- I'll talk to him when i'm ready. Maybe after tour ends. Right now I need to focus on my career. Not him." I sighed.

"Are you still going to invite us to a few concerts?" Miranda asked.

"Of course." I told her. It was silent for a moment and I looked at my friends. "I missed you guys so much."

"You have no idea how much we missed you." Emily smiled.

As much as I wanted to force a smile on my face at that moment my heart wouldn't allow it. Every time I closed my eyes I saw Liam and Danielle and ever time I saw it, it broke my heart a little more.
