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.


40. Gray

***Beth's POV***

-1 month later-

I sat by the window watching the raindrops fall down the glass. The sound of the rain filled my ears as I looked out at the cold, gray sky. It had been a while since I felt completely okay. Since the day that I got the call from my father he has been calling once and a while telling me that the current day may be my last or that I would pay for what I've done. I knew one of these days that he would take me away from everything I loved. My life, my family, my home. He would find a way to shatter my world just for the simple reason of revenge. I have finally accepted the fact that my father died a long time ago and now the monster within him still lives. 

*** The sound of footsteps made me snap out of my thoughts. I looked up and saw Liam entering the room, a small smile on his face. He came over to me and took me into his arms, not saying a word. We just sat there and watched the rain fall from the ash colored could. He laid me in his lap and my head rested on his chest. He lightly kissed my temple but still didn't say anything. For about a week after the first phone call he and I fought a lot about how I no longer had that little twinkle in my eye and how I didn't trust him. Long story short, I won that battle. I think he's finally accepted that I am haunted by the sound of my fathers raspy voice. I soon fell asleep in his arms.

I found myself standing in a field. Endless miles of long, dead grass surrounded me. The only sound that filled my ears was the sound of my feet stepping on the old gray grass. The sky above me was a depressing shade of gray and the clouds seemed to be hiding some sort of bright light behind them. A twig snapped behind me and I turned around. His dark, evil face met mine and I could feel my face get white. He began walking towards me slowly. I turned around and began to run but every time I looked back I saw his haunting face. His grey eyes stared into mine. He seemed to be following me and no matter how fast i ran or hard I tried to hide, he would still be there, right behind me.

"Don't you understand? You cant run from me. You can't hide from me. I'll always be here." He whispered in his horrifying voice.

I turned back around hoping to find a way out but found that he was now standing in front of me.

"What do you want from me?!" I screamed. 

"You're going to pay for what you've done." He told me in his husky voice.

I fell to my knees and sat there in the field. He was watching me. Where ever I go. He is watching me. There is nothing I can do. I'm trapped.

"Beth." A voice whispered.

"Leave me alone. Please just leave me alone." I sobbed.

"Beth, you were dreaming. I'm not going to leave you." Liam whispered.

"Hes watching me." I whispered. "He knows where I am. He knows what I'm doing."

Liam slowly kissed the top of my head and held me in his arms.

"Beth, he is just a roadblock on the path of life. He will be one of those people to try and stop you from dreaming, from living, from loving the people you love. You can't let him win though." Liam whispered.

I buried my face into his chest. 

"I love you." I said softly.

"I love you too." He told me.

"I wonder what she would think of this." I said.

"Who?" Liam asked.

"My mum." I said quietly. "What would she think of my own father hunting me down and her own daughter being scared that every day with the people she loves could be her last."

"Don't talk like that. Please." Liam whimpered.

"Hes going to find me Liam. We both know that. I think we both know what hes going to do when he finds me." I said in a hushed voice.

He buried his face into the back of my shoulder. "No. Beth. You are going to be okay. We'll be okay. We'll be fine. We'll get through this ad we'll be safe and sound."

I could tell he was trying to hold back tears.

"Do you remember when we were 7 years old and got lost in the woods at camp? We thought we were going to die but you reassured me that we would be fine. The camp counselors would find us and we'd be alright." Liam said.

"I remember that. But Liam, we're not just lost in a small part of the woods this time. He has me trapped." I whispered.

We just sat there for a while, still looking out at the pouring rain outside. The puddles on the street acted as mirrors to the clouds but the only thing that stared back into the water was depressing and gray. Some part of me, deep down wanted to believe that everything would be okay but I knew that no matter how many times people told me that everything will be alright, I knew that it wouldn't. Thats what hurt the most.
