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.


21. Hello New Liam

***Beth's POV***

-Two month's later-

As I drove to the airport I couldn't wipe the grin off of my face. They were coming today and I couldn't be happier. Simon had gotten another bus so they will be staying on the other bus. As soon as I pulled into the airport I ran inside and waited outside their gate.

Flight 385 from London, England to Washington DC has now landed.

I grinned as I waited for them to appear from the plane. Finally after what felt like forever i saw the familiar black quiff and the mop of chocolate curls along with everyone behind them walk off. Then I saw him. e was the last one off the plane and he had his head down and he looked so different. My eyes caught El's and she grinned.

"Beth!!!!!" She screamed, running over to me, engulfing me in a hug.

"Hey El." I grinned.

Everyone else rushed over.

"We missed you." Louis told me.

"I missed you guys too." I smiled.

I gave everyone a hug and when I got to Liam he looked up. His eyes were bloodshot and he had a frown on his face. He looked so... different. I turned away and looked back at everyone else.

"Alright so we can continue this reunion thing back in the car. People are staring." I grinned.

They agreed and we walked out of the airport after they grabbed their bags from baggage claim. We got into the car and I pulled out of the airport.

"So Beth, how have you been?" Niall asked.

"I'm fine." I said simply.

"Busy with the new boyfriend?" Harry smirked.

I looked in the rearview mirror at Liam and his head shot up and he glared at Harry.

"Hes... hes fine too." I said softly.

"Wow, how enthusiastic." Miranda smirked.

"Oh stop smirking. You two are like the same people, I swear." I groaned.

"So are you ready for the VMAs on Saturday night?" Zayn asked.

"Yeah. I guess." I said. "What about you guys, how have you been?"

I stole another glance at Liam, he had his head rested against the window.

"We've been great... well... some of us." Louis said, glancing at Liam.

I turned to Louis who was sitting in the passenger seat and mouthed 'What Happened?' I nodded my head back to where Liam was.

'I'll tell you later.' He mouthed back.

I nodded. We all talked for a while but I couldn't get my mind off of the look on Liam's face. He looked broken. As I pulled into the bus lot we got out and they grabbed their bags. I led them over to their bus and we walked on.

"Alright, you know the drill, choose a bunk, don't make a mess, and no sex on the bus." I smirked.

"Yes mum." Louis said, grinning.

"You've been here for half an hour and i'm already mum? Well alright then Lou." I said.

They all walked back to the bunks and chose theirs. As soon as they were done we all sat in the lounge and talked. I still kept glancing at Liam who still hadn't said a word. I turned to Louis. 'Tell me whats wrong.' I mouthed.

"We'll be right back. I need to talk to Beth about something." Louis said.

He and I walked off the bus and he sighed.

"Well it was about a month after we came back from visiting you, you had just started dating Brandon. Liam changed when he found out. The look on his face, it was haunting. About a week later he walked out when we were having a song writing meeting. He's been skipping practices and... and getting drunk a lot. I don't think he sleeps much. We went by his house a while ago to see him and there was a lot of broken stuff, holes in the wall. He's shut everyone out Beth. He's barely ever talks to any of us and when he does its rude comments or yelling. When Harry mentioned Brandon in the car I think we all expected for Liam to tackle Harry. He didn't though because you were there. He's just been rude to all of us and... he's changed. He's changed a lot." Louis sighed.

I stared at Louis, my eyes wide. I marched back on the bus and stood in front of Liam.

"Get up." I ordered.

Liam looked up at me and stood up. I slapped him across his face.

"How dare you mistreat your friends who have done nothing but try to help you! Skipping practices?! Getting drunk Liam?! Who the hell are you anymore because you sure as hell are not the Liam I know." I told him harshly. "I want you to apologize to them."

Liam just stared at me. "No."

"And why is that?" I asked.

"Because no one actually gives two shits about me. They all hate me anyway! Even you do!" He yelled.

He was about to walk off the bus when I responded.

"Believe it or not Liam James Payne I give more than two shits about you! I could never hate you! I may hate what you have done to me, what you've put me through, what you've become, but that does not mean I hate you!" I told him.

"And yet, I make one big mistake and you just pretend like I don't exist. Oh and look, you have your new little boyfriend. What are you going to do when he breaks your heart?! Are you going to ignore him too?!" Liam yelled.

I walked over to him and slapped him again. "Don't you make this about him! If you're going to blame anyone blame yourself!" I yelled back. 

I turned to everyone else. "I'm sorry that i'm yelling on your first day on tour. I'm going back to my tour bus, if any of you would like to join me, feel free." 

I walked off of the bus and walked to my own. As soon as I stepped on I noticed Brandon sitting on the couch, scrolling through channels on the tv.

"Hey babe." He grinned.

I walked over to him and sat down next to him. He pulled me into a hug.

"Whats wrong?" He asked.

"I don't wanna talk about it." I mumbled.

"Okay." He said.

I felt a tear slide down my cheek but I quickly wiped it away. That boy wasn't Liam. It wasn't the Liam who held me in his arms when I was feeling sad, the one who I had pillow fights and snowball fights with. The Liam I grew up with. This Liam was a monster.
