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.


39. He Called

***Beth's POV***

Tonight we were all at mine and Liam's house for a movie night. We were currently watching Transformers which the boys were thoroughly enjoying. I sat there with my head rested on Liam's shoulder and he had his arms wrapped around me. About half way through the movie my phone began to ring. I looked down and saw that it was an unknown caller.

"Be right back." I told everyone.

I got up and walked into the kitchen. I answered the phone and pressed it to my ear.

"Hello?" I asked.

"Well, look who finally answered the phone." A rasp voice said on the other line.

Chills ran down my spine and my face lost its color. The voice on the other line. It was so familiar.

"What do you want?" I whimpered quietly.

"You shouldn't have run away sweetheart." The voice said.

"I ran away to get away from you! To have a better life!" I hissed.

"Better watch out sweetheart."He laughed evilly. 

A tear slipped down my cheek, hearing his voice... it was too much.

"Go to hell." I cried softly before hanging up.

I leaned against the kitchen counter and let my thoughts process what just happened. I could hear footsteps walk into the kitchen but I didn't look to see who it was.

"Beth, you okay?" Louis asked.

I didn't look at him, I just shook my head. He walked over to me and pulled me into a hug.

"What happened?" He asked.

"He called me." I whispered quietly.

"Who called you?" Louis asked.

I looked up into his eyes and he could see the tears. 

"Y-your father?" Louis asked in disbelief.

I nodded as another tear fell.

"He said I better watch out. Hes going to find me Louis and hes going to kill all of us." I cried quietly.

"No hes not. I won't allow it." He told me.

We stayed silent for a while before I spoke.

"Please don't tell Liam. He will just get all protective." I said.

Louis nodded and hugged me. "I won't let him hurt you."

I wiped the tear stains off of my cheeks and Louis and I walked back into the living room.

"Babe, who was it?" Liam asked.

"No one." I told him, sitting back down.

"If it was no one then why were you in the kitchen for 10 minutes?" He asked me.

"Because I was. Drop it please." I said.

He looked at me. "Beth, I know something is wrong. You can hide it from everyone else but you can't hide it from me. I know when you're lying."

"Liam I told you it was no one. Please just let it go!" I snapped.

"Beth, please tell us who it was. They clearly made you upset." Harry said.

I just sat there, staring at my friends, his voice still fresh in my mind. Better watch out sweetheart. I saw Louis looking at me. 'Tell them.' he mouthed. 'No' I mouthed back. 

"He knows doesn't he Beth? Louis knows. Why is it always Louis who knows everything?! Do you not trust me?" Liam asked.

"Of course I trust you Liam! Maybe I don't have to tell you everything though! I know I can tell Louis anything because he won't get all protective like my boyfriend will!" I snapped at Liam.

"Oh so you're choosing Louis over me now?! Louis matters more than me?! What does Louis have that I don't?!" Liam shouted, standing up.

"Its not what you don't have Liam! Its what you do have! You have the ability to know when something is wrong! You know when I'm lying! Well you know what Liam?! Sometimes I just need to keep my feelings in! Maybe sometimes I need to lie not to hurt all of you but to keep myself stable!" I yelled.

Liam just stood there, a blank look on his face, his hands in his shorts pockets. I was standing across the room just staring at him.

"I'm not as strong as all of you think I am." I whispered.

I turned on my heel and marched upstairs. Once inside my room I changed into my pajamas. I sat down on my bed and sighed, staring blankly at the wall. I could hear muffled voices downstairs and finally the house was silent. A few moments later there was a knock on the door. I didn't respond. The door creaked open and the sound of footsteps filled the room.

"Beth?" Louis asked from behind me.

He sighed. "I- I told them."

I whirled around and glared at Louis.

"What?! Why Louis?! I thought I could trust you but I guess not!?" I hissed.

"Beth please. They deserve to know. I know you didn't want Liam knowing but they forced it out of me." Louis told me.

I bit my lip and stared off into space. I opened my mouth, prepared to have a comeback but nothing came out. I knew he was right. They deserved to know. I sighed.

"Fine." I mumbled.

I followed Louis out of the room and walked back downstairs. When Liam saw me coming down he walked over to me and hugged me.

"I'm sorry for yelling." He whispered into my shoulder.

"Me too." I whispered back.

"Next time he calls you I want you to tell me okay?" Liam asked, concerned.

I nodded.

"Has he called before tonight?" Niall asked me.

I shook my head. 

"What exactly did he say?" El asked.

"He... he said that I better watch out." I told them.

Liam kissed my forehead lightly.

"I promise Beth, I'll do whatever it takes to keep you safe from your father. I don't know what I would do without you." Liam said.

And at that moment I felt safe in the arms of someone who would truly love me forever.
