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.

12. I Just Need To Say, I Love You

***Beth's POV***

The next morning I woke up and found that I was absolutely exhausted. Last night the lads, El, Mir and Em and  had stayed up until 2 in the morning talking. They had gone back to their hotel after that. I rolled out of my bunk and stubbled into the lounge. Aly, Mads and Becca were sitting there watching Spongebob.

"Oh my gosh. You're watching spongebob without me?" I whined.

"Oh hun im sorry." Bec smiled.

"Bec, you know Spongebob is our show!" I told her.

"Well would you rather me wake you up after staying up all right talking?" She smirked.

"It wasn't up all night. It was 2 am." I told her, sitting in between her and Aly.

"Still though. What did you talk about that went on for hours? Did you and Liam make up yet?" Mads asked.

I sighed and shook my head. "We just talked about tour an how its going. Stuff like that. I could tell Louis wanted to bring up the whole um... Liam situation but I was giving him death glares."

"You get that look on your face every time his name is mentioned." Aly sighed.

"What look?" I asked, my eyebrows raised.

"I've noticed it too. You being to frown and your eyes get glossy. Its almost like your eyes loose a little color also. Didn't they used to be like... bight blue?" Becca asked.

"What are you talking about? My eyes are blue... they're still blue." I told her.

"Hun... they're more gray blue." Mads sighed.

"When I first met you, you always had a smile on your face, your eyes shined, you would laugh at everything and it was because you had Liam. When we saw you for the first time since the breakup, it was like looking at a completely different person. You always were lost in your thoughts,you almost never smiles and your eyes were a grayish blue. You almost never laugh anymore and you cry every time you sing A Thousand Years. I know you don't want to hear it Beth, we may just be your dancers but we are also some of your best friends, you need him. He needs you. Theres always another side to the story." Becca told me.

"So either you make up with Liam tonight or you wait 3 more months of crying after every concert." Aly said.

I saw Becca look down at her phone and press a few buttons.

I bit my lip and looked up at the ceiling. "Have you ever loved someone so much it hurts? You loved them from the moment you laid your eyes in them? And finally after what felt like a thousand years, you are together. You have never felt happier in your life. You love him more than anything, more than life itself. He tells you ever day that he loves you. Every single day for nine months. He was your world. Your rock. No one knew you better than he did. You couldn't imagine life without him. You believed him when he said 'I love you, forever and always'. Then one day, you get home early from a meeting and you find him on our couch... in our house... snogging his ex girlfriend who is half naked. And worst of all... all of your friends knew but one, and none of them told you. He was your everything. And when you see him... with her... it makes you feel like theres nothing left to live for. That he never even loved you and lied to you through the entire relationship. It makes your heart shatter and you end up broken. That. Thats why its not so easy for me. I know none of you understand it because you haven't known or loved someone as long as I have loved him. It makes you unsure if you will ever love anyone again because no one can amount to the love you felt for him. Liam and I... we have so many memories, when we were kids, we did everything together. He helped me thorough some of the hardest times in my life. Even when my mum died and my father began abusing me, all I had to do was think of him and it suddenly made everything al right. But now every time I close my eyes all I see is him and...him and her." I told them, there were tears slipping down my cheeks.

"Okay... Beth please don't be mad at me but um..." She took out her phone and showed that she was on the phone... with Louis.... and it was on speaker phone.

I was silent as I stared at her then at her phone. "They heard all of that....?" I gulped.

She looked down and nodded. 

***Louis's POV***

We all sat around in mine and El's hotel room listening to Beth talk on the phone. We know what we were doing was wrong but we had to know why she won't forgive Liam after all this time.

 "Have you ever loved someone so much it hurts? You loved them from the moment you laid your eyes in them? And finally after what felt like a thousand years, you are together. You have never felt happier in your life. You love him more than anything, more than life itself. He tells you ever day that he loves you. Every single day for nine months. He was your world. Your rock. No one knew you better than he did. You couldn't imagine life without him. You believed him when he said 'I love you, forever and always'.

But now every time I close my eyes all I see is him and...him and her." She said, it was clear that she was crying.

We all sat there silently. I looked over at Liam and he looked like this . We all watched as he stood up. He walked towards the door.

"Liam where are you going?" I asked.

He turned to us, tears still slipping down her cheeks. "I'm going to get her back. I'm going to tell her everything."

He walked out the door and left us sitting there in shock.

***Liam's POV***

I walked out of the hotel room and walked over to the elevator. As I rode down to the lobby her words played in my mind. 'You believed him when he said 'I love you, forever and always''. I love her. I love her so much that when it comes to her, nothing else matters. She's all I see. When I arrived at the bottom floor I walked out and walked out of the hotel. I began to walk and my steps grew weaker with each step. I needed her. She was like a drug to me. I was addicted. I walked alone on the streets and it felt like nothing mattered but her. After what felt like eternity of walking I reached the bus lot. As I walked up I saw someone sitting, her back leaning up against the bus, her head in her hands. I didn't have to guess twice to know who it was.

"I love you." Where the only words that came out at that moment.

Her head lifted from her hands and she looked up at me with her tear glistened eyes. "What are you doing here?"

"I need you to know... I love you Elizabeth Ashton. I love you so much that it hurts. Whenever I close my eyes i'm blinded because you're all I see. You can tell me that you don't believe me but all I speak is the truth when I say I love you Elizabeth Ashton." I whispered, loud enough for her to hear.

She didn't say anything, she just looked up at me. 

"Beth, do you remember the day we met? You were wearing a light pink dress and white shoes. The truth is, I didn't come over to you because I wanted to draw, I came over to you because the moment I laid my eyes on you, I finally believed in love at first sight. Because there I was, standing in the middle of a kindergarten class room, looking at the most beautiful girl I had ever laid my eyes on. I was in love with you and I didn't even know your name. From ever single day on, I found myself falling more and more in love with you. And from that day, August 20, 1998, there is not a single day that I haven't loved you." I told her.

A tear slipped down my cheek and I watched one slip down hers. She just sat there and didn't say anything. I turned on my heel and walked away. I don't know why I walked away, maybe I just couldn't see her cry because of me. As soon as I made my way back to my hotel room I packed all of my stuff in my bag. As I was packing the last of my stuff away the hotel room door opened.

"Liam? What are you doing?" Harry sighed.

I turned around and faced him and everyone else behind him. "I'm leaving. I'm leaving because I am the reason why she barely ever smiles anymore. I am the reason why she cries, I am the reason she no longer has that twinkle in her eyes. I am the reason for all of the pain she is going through. I don't deserve her. I should have fought for her. I shouldn't have given in. I'd rather die than not have her by my side right now. She is what keeps me going." I said.

I packed up the rest of my stuff and pushed past everyone. I rode down the elevator into the lobby and got into the closest open taxi. As it took me to the airport I looked out the window. All I saw was her.
