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.


3. Home

Louis and I pulled into the driveway of his house. Tomorrow was my interview and I would be staying at Louis's house for now. We got our bags out of the back of my car and walked inside.

"Okay, so you can stay in the guest room. You know where it is right?" Louis asked.

"Yeah." I replied.

I walked up the stairs and walked down the hall to the guest room. I dropped my bags on the floor and walked back downstairs.

"So, we can go out and do something or we can stay in and watch a movie. Whatever you want." He smiled.

"I kind of want some fresh air." I told him.

"Alright. Lets go then." He said.

We grabbed our coats and walked out the door. I looked down at my outfit . We got into his car and he drove us to Downtown.

"Now hopefully we don't get spotted by paps because then the boys will know we're here. I'm more concerned about you because if Liam or any of them finds out that you're with me, they'll be at my door as soon as they find out." He said.

"Yeah. Then they'll never let me leave." I mumbled.

As soon as we reached downtown Louis parked the car and we got out.

"Why don't we get some Starbucks?" Louis suggested.

"Yeah." I said.

We walked into Starbucks, our sunglasses still on. We walked up to the counter.

"Um two hot chocolates with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. Both of them Talls." Louis told the cashier.

After he paid for the drinks we waited by the counter for them to be ready.

"So what are we going to do if the boys find out i'm with you?" I asked him.

"Well, they will come to my house but I will hide you somewhere. If you don't want them finding you just yet then I will try my hardest to make sure they don't." He smiled.

I gave him a hug. "Thank you Louis."

"Of course." He said.

"So you don't think El is taking this whole secret thing the wrong way do you?" I asked.

He shook his head. "I explained everything to her. She knows neither of us would ever cheat and honestly Beth, I love you but as a little sister. I'm not like Liam, i'm not going to fall in love with you."

I looked down at the mention of his name. Every time I hear it I want to break.

"Sorry I won't mention his name." He said, hugging me.

We got our drinks and walked outside.

"So where to now?" He asked.

"Lets go to the park." I said.

He nodded and we began walking back to the car. W heard something click behind us and we turned and saw Paps.

"Shit! Get in the car!" Louis hissed quickly.

We hopped into his car quickly and he pulled out. 

"On second thought lets just go back to your house." I said quickly.

He nodded. We soon arrived back at his house and we rushed inside.

"So that picture that the paps took, it will probably be up on the internet within the next hour. That also means the lads and everyone else will be here soon." Louis sighed.

"I'm not ready to talk to them." I said.

"I know. Me too." He replied.

"Lock the doors and windows so they cant get inside." I said.

"Beth, its not like they're experts in breaking into houses." Louis smirked.

"Liam had to break us into my house when we were younger at least 5 times because neither of my parents were home and I didn't have a key. He knows how to break in and if i'm in here and he wants to talk to me, he will break into your house. I'm dead serious." I told him.

His eyes widened. "Yeah lets lock everything up."

We rushed around the house locking all the windows and doors. Louis and I decided to watch a movie.

"What movie should we watch?" I asked.

"Taken?" He said.


He selected Taken on Netflix and we began to watch it. Sure enough, about half way into the movie, there was a knock on the door.

"Hm. I wonder who that could be!" Louis said sarcastically. "Go upstairs in case they peak in the windows." 

I nodded and hurried upstairs.

***Louis's POV***

As she rushed upstairs I walked to my front door and opened it. There stood six of my 'friends.

"Louis..." Harry said.

"Sorry I didn't know I forgave all of you." I said harshly.

"Can you please let us explain. Please Louis?" Niall said.

"What is there to explain?" I asked.

"What happend. What actually happened with Liam and Danielle. Theres more to the story than you actually know." Emily said.

I rolled my eyes. "You shouldn't be telling me that. You should be telling Beth that."

"So shes here?" Liam asked, his eyes glistening.

I glared at him. "I didn't say that."

"Is she here Louis? We know you were just with her." Zayn sighed.

"It doesn't matter if shes here or not. She doesn't want to see any of you." I hissed.

"And who says you can speak for her?" Liam asked.

"Liam I don't think you get it. You're not her best friend anymore. I hate to say it mate, but over the past week, while you've had six shoulders to cry on, all shes had is me. If you truly loved her you wouldn't have cheated on her." I growled.

Liam stepped forward, ager in his eyes. " What do you mean, if I truly loved her?! I love her with all of my heart. I always have, always will! Maybe if you would shut up for a moment I could explain what happened!"

"Stop making excuses Liam. All of you. I think that you're all forgetting that none of you trusted me. None of you told me. You left me in the dark, hiding your dirty little secret. All of you were right, I would have told Beth. You know why? Because a true friend never keeps secrets like that. Now get the hell off of my property." I seethed, turning towards my door.

"What would Eleanor say about Beth being in your house, with you all the time, more than her?" Liam asked.

I stopped and turned around. "What, you think that just because Beth is my best friend that i'd actually cheat on Eleanor?! Not everyone is like you Liam! Some people are actually faithful in their relationships while having best friends!"

I turned back around and walked back into my house. I slammed and locked the door behind me. I rushed upstairs and saw beth sitting on the top step, her head leaning against the wall, tears slipping down her cheeks with a blank expression on my face. I didn't say anything. I just sat next to her and hugged her. What she needed most right now was a friend, and that is exactly what I was going to be.
