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.

13. Goodbye Again

***Liam's POV***

I sat in the airport, nothing but emptiness. A few tears would occasionally slip down my cheek but I barely noticed them. Have you ever had that moment when your entire life flashes before your eyes? Well ever moment with her, ever birthday, ever sleepover, ever halloween, ever summer, everything was flashing through my eyes at that moment. Her crystal blue eyes, her perfect white smile, her beautiful long, dark brown hair. Everything about her was so flawless. One mistake and she's gone. Its feels like my world has come crashing down. Her concert has started now and I have no doubt she will be more than happy to see that i'm not there.

***Beth's POV***

I sat backstage after soundcheck alone, my head rested on the headrest of the couch. I was wearing black UGGs, black leggings and his sweatshirt. His sweatshirt that I never gave back to him. It still smelled like him and somehow, it brought me comfort. The words he had said to me before rushed though my mind. I took out my phone and logged onto Twitter. I scrolled though some old pictures Liam and I had posted of each other. One caption caught my eye.



@Real_Liam_Payne: Remember this Beth? We were 6 years old. I loved you then, I love you now and I will love you forever.

A tear slipped down my cheek. The door to the dressing room opened and Miranda, Emily, El and Stephanie walked in.

"Oh my god Beth, you okay?" Mir asked, rushing to my side.

I sighed and nodded.

"Beth is that Liam's sweatshirt?" Emily asked.

"No." I lied.

"Yes it is. I've seen Liam wear it tons of times." El said.

"Its just a random sweatshirt that I picked up. No big deal." I mumbled.

"Stop lying Beth. We know thats Liam's sweatshirt. We know you miss him." Emily said.

"Can you just stop saying his name please." I asked, feeing more tears in the corners of my eyes.

"Sorry." Emily sighed.

"Beth you need to get ready for your concert." Steph told me.

"Alright." I replied, dropping my phone on the couch.

Steph handed me my dress and I walked into the bathroom and slipped it on. When I walked back out I found Miranda holding my phone looking down at it.

"Beth, you miss him. If you didn't you wouldn't be looking at old pictures of you two." She sighed.

I grabbed my phone from her and sat down in the hair and makeup chair.

"I don't miss him. I was just looking for an old picture." I lied.

"You're a really bad liar." Louis smirked, coming in with the rest of the boys... minus one.

"I am not!"I told him.

"Yes you are." Harry grinned cheekily.

I rolled my eyes. "Whatever gets you through the day."

I noticed them all there but Liam.

"Where is he anyway?" I asked.

"He um... he left." Niall sighed.

I turned around in the chair and looked at Niall. "What? Why?"

"Because he can't stand to be the reason you cry, because you never smile, because you no longer have that twinkle in your eye. He feels like hes the cause of all of that so he left." Niall told me.

I bit my lip. "Oh."

"Oh? Beth he really loves you. You just need to hear the full story." Miranda said.

"Well all of you know the whole story. Why don't you tell me?" I asked.

"Its not our place to tell you." Zayn said.

"The suspense is killing me." I groaned. "The last thing I want to hear is more lies."

Steph began doing my hair and makeup while everyone else sat there quietly talking or on their phones. I looked at them through the mirror.

"Can I um... ask you guys something?" I asked.

"Yeah of course." Niall said.

"Do you think i've changed... like since the um... breakup?" I asked.

"Would you like us to be honest?" Mir asked.

"Yeah that would be nice." I said.

"You've changed a lot actually. You zone out a lot, it seems like you are off somewhere else. Your eyes changed. You almost never smile or laugh unless you are trying to hide your true feelings. I mean... I know its been like... five months since the breakup but you don't seem to have gotten better." Louis sighed.

"Remember when you used to be all happy and bubbly? Make random jokes and smile all the time?" Emily asked.

"Yeah." I sighed.

"That part of you, we haven't seen in five months." Harry told me.

"You know your song I'm Only Me When I'm With You?" El asked

I nodded.

"What you say in that song is true. Beth, you're only you when you're with him." She said

I bit my lip. 

"Do you think after tour ends... maybe you can talk to Liam about it? Not for him, for us?" Niall asked.

"I don't know. Considering you heard the entire thing I said this morning when Becca put me on speaker without me knowing... I just don't want to repeat myself.  I just feel like the only thing people ever ask me anymore is will you forgive him. And honestly, I really don't know." I told them.

Steph finished up my hair and makeup and I looked like this .

"You look so beautiful." Miranda squealed.

I gave her a smile. "Thank you."

We walked out of the dressing room and the microphone guy handed me my silver rhinestone covered microphone. Bella was already on stage singing The A Team.

"I can't wait to spend an entire two weeks with you on tour." El grinned.

"I mean just because we're your best friends doesn't mean we're not huge fans of your music. We love all of your songs."Emily told me.

I pulled the three girls into a hug. "I love you three. If Perrie was here I'd have all my girlies."

"She'll be here for when we come in August."El smiled.

"Good." I replied.

"Beth, you're on in 2 minutes." Grace told me.

"Alright." I told her.

When Bella walked off stage everyone wished me good luck as I walked out onto the dark stage. As the lights slowly came on the intro music to Love Story began to play.

"We were both young when I first saw you, I closed my eyes and the flash back starts, i'm standin' there. On a balcony in summer air. See the lights see the party the ball gowns, see you make your way through the crowd and say hello. Little did I know... that you were Romeo, you were throwin' pebbles and my daddy said stay away from Juliet and I was cryin' on the staircase beggin' you please don't gooo. And I said, Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone, I'll be waitin all theres left to do is run, you'll be the prince and i'll be the princess, its a love story baby just say yes. So I sneak out to the garden to see you, we keep quiet cause we're dead if they knew so close your eyes. Escape this town for a little while. Cause you were Romeo I was a scarlet letter and my daddy said stay away from Juliet but you were everything to me I was beggin' you please don't gooooo. And I said, Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone, I'll be waitin' all theres left to do is run, you'll be the prince and i'll be the princess its a love story baby just say yes. Romeo save me they'll try to tell me how to feel, this love is difficult but its reeal don't be afraid, we'll make it out of this mess its a love story baby just say yes. Oh ohhh. I got tired of waitin'... wonderin' if you were ever comin' around, my faith in you was... fading, when I met you on the outskirts of town. And I said... Romeo save me i've been feelin' so alone, I keep waitin' for you but you never come, is this in my head, I don't know what to think, he knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said: Marry me Juliet you'll never have to be alone, I love you and that all I really know, I talked to your dad he'll pick out a white dress its a love story baby just say yes. Oh ohhh. Oh ohhhh. Cause we were both young when I first saw you." I sang.

As soon as I finished that song the fans went wild. I went straight into Today Was a Fairytale.
 

"Today was a fairytale, you were the prince, I used to be a damsel in distress, you took me by the hand and you picked me up at six, today was a fairytale. Today was a fairytale. Today was a fairytale, I wore a dress, you wore a dark grey t-shirt, you told me I was pretty, when I looked like a mess, today was a fairytale. Time slows down, whenever you're around. Can you feel this magic in the air? It must have been the way you kissed me, fell in love when I saw you standing there, it must have been the way, today was a fairytale. It must have been the way, today was a fairytale. Today was a fairytale, you've got a smile that takes me to another planet, every move you make everything you say is right, today was a fairytale. Today was a fairytale, all that I can say is now it's getting so much clearer, nothing made sense until the time I saw your face, today was a fairytale. Time slows down, whenever you're around. But can you feel this magic in the air? It must have been the way you kissed me, fell in love when I saw you standing there, it must have been the way, today was a fairytale, it must have been the way, today was a fairytale. Time slows down, whenever you're around, I can feel my heart, it's beating in my chest, did you feel it? I can't put this down. But can you feel this magic in the air? It must have been the way you kissed me, fell in love when I saw you standing there, it must have been the way. But can you feel this magic in the air? It must have been the way you kissed me, fell in love when I saw you standing there, it must have been the way, today was a fairytale, it must have been the way, today was a fairytale. Today was a fairytale." I finished the song and the fans screamed.

I sang Red next. After Red I sang A Year Without Rain, I'm Only Me When I'm With You, Catch Me, Mean, Ours, Catch My Breath, Enchanted, Breakaway and finally I began the lyrics to A Thousand Years.

"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 doubts, suddenly goes away somehow, 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. 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 more. 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, I could feel the tears already coming.

I thanked the crowd and walked off stage. Yet again, tears fell at just the thought of the song. Mir, Em and El pulled me into a hug.

"Okay first of all, that was fantastic." El grinned.

I gave her a small smile and wiped a tear away. "Thanks."

The boys came over and gave me a hug each.

"That was amazing Beth." Louis grinned.

"Thank you." I told him.

"Don't cry Beth. Please." Harry said, pulling me into a hug.

"You can try boys. Its after every concert." Grace sighed.

"I love you Gracie Boo but no one needs to know that." I said, giving her a small smile.

Grace rolled her eyes and walked away.

"So we need to catch our flight. You can come to the airport with us if you'd like." Louis said.

I nodded. "I just need to go meet the fans with backstage passes and then I need to change."

"Alright." He replied.

They followed me over to the room where the VIP people were. I opened the door and the fans began to scream. I was instantly swarmed by fans.

"Ladies! Gentleman! Please step away. You will get your turn!" Grace called, coming into the room.

Everyone became quiet and they began to step away. The first girl who came up to me looked about 7 or 8.

"Hi." She smiled happily.

"Hi there, whats your name?" I asked.

"Kaylie." She said. "Can I have your autograph?"

"Of course." I smiled.

She handed me a little pink notebook and a pink sparkly pen. I signed my name and she grinned happily.

"Elizabeth?" She asked before walking away.

"Yes hun?"

"I think you and Liam were adorable. I hope you two get married someday." She told me and walked away.

I blushed and looked down. I met all the other fans and when that was over I walked back to my dressing room with the boys, Mir, Em and El.

"I'll be right back. I need to change." I told them.

I grabbed an outfit that was hanging up and went into the bathroom o change, it looked like this . I walked back out and grabbed my stuff.

"Alright, lets go."I sighed.

We all walked out of the arena and got into the black SUV. Since their stuff was already in the cars the driver drove us to the airport. Once they had their tickets it was time to say goodbye. After I said goodbye to each of them I turned to all of them.

"I just wanted to thank you for just surprising me and showing up because I don't think I would be able to go six months without seeing all of you. When I get off of tour, who knows, maybe I will forgive Liam. Thank you for sticking by my side even though i've been a turned out bitch most of the time. I couldn't ask for better friends." I smiled.

I said goodbye and they walked onto the plane. How was I going to survive the next three months?
