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.


52. Missing Her

Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

Her voice. Her angelic voice. The one that once put a smile on my face now brought heartbreak. For days I had been listening to her voice, listening to her songs hoping that they would somehow bring her back to me. No one understood. They have never loved a girl as much as I love her. She. Is. My. Everything. I decided to go back to Wolverhampton with my family for a few days in hopes of finding some clue to where she is. 
*** I walked out the door of my house, not yet knowing where I was going or what I was doing. I just needed to walk. I needed to get away from reality for a while. My feet moved swiftly on the pavement as I made my way to my car. I silently got in and pulled out of the driveway. Soon I found myself at a place where I knew I could feel safe, where I knew... no matter what, someone was listening. I slipped out of the car and walked over to Beth's mum's grave. I knelt down on the soft green grass and stared at the marble headstone before me. I read it over and over in my head.

Loving Mother and Wife


What had happened for everything to go so wrong. When I left I never expected to come back to this. Beth's abusive father, her mum dead. It seems like everything changed so much and I wasn't even there for it.

"I need her." I whispered. "You were like a second mum to me. Out of all people, you know what... what she means to me. I need her back."

I could only hope that she was listening.

"She is like my other half. She makes me, my life complete. Without her, I'm broken. I'm nothing. Please help me get her back. Please look after her until I get her back." I whispered.

I could feel like someone was watching me, I looked around but saw no one. I sighed and stood up and walked back to my car. I got in and leaned my head against my steering wheel, trying hard not to cry. Beth. Just the mention of her name made me break. When we broke up, at least I could see her. But now? Now she's been taken from me. A piece of my heart has been stolen from me and I can't get it back until I get her back. She is that piece of my heart. I slowly started the car and felt a small, silent tear slip down my cheek. I drove out of the cemetery and drove to my next destination. Soon I found myself parked outside the huge brick house. My body ached with heartbreak as I got out. My feet felt heavy as I took each step up the stone path to the front door. I found the small golden key in the flower pot and put it into the keyhole. As soon as I was inside memories filled my mind and overwhelmed me. Everywhere I looked, everywhere I stepped there was a memory. Something more that reminded me of her. Reminded me that she is gone. I walked halfway up the left staircase before feeling my knees give in. I slowly sat down on the stair, my head leaned against the railing. I stared at the soft, pale yellow walls and the dark hard wood floors. I could still remember sliding down the rails of these very stairs when we were younger, almost like it was yesterday. My fingers ran along the soft wood of the stair and my other hand wiped away the tear that had fallen from my eye. The front door slowly opened but I didn't look up to see who it was.

"Liam." A female voice whispered.

I slowly looked up and saw Miranda and Emily standing there. I looked back down.

"What are you doing here? I thought you were back in London." I mumbled.

"This is our hometown too Liam. We also came to see if you were okay." Emily told me.

"Are the others here too?" I asked quietly.

"No. We wanted to come alone. The three of us knew her the best." Miranda sighed.

"How did you find me?" I whispered.

"You come here when you want to think about her. About the memories." Miranda said.

The two of them walked up the stairs slowly and sat down beside me.

"We'll get her back Liam. She loves you and she would never go down without a fight. Especially for the ones she loves." Emily reassured me.

I didn't say anything. I just stared at the soft yellow walls and felt a small tear slide down my cheek. I could see Mir and Em trying to hold back tears too.

"I told her. I promised her that I wouldn't let him take her. I wouldn't let him hurt her. I promised her that I would keep her safe. I broke my promise." I mumbled.

"You did every possible thing you could have done. He... he would have gotten to her at some point." Emily sighed.

"I didn't get to tell her I loved her one last time. I didn't know that the last time I held her in my arms may be the last. The last time I held her hand. The last kiss or hug." I cried softly.

"It won't be the last though. She's a fighter. She's stronger than people think she is and you know that. You just need convincing. I bet at this moment she is thinking about you. Thinking the same things as you. Wishing she could just come bak to you. Sometimes you need to let time tell. She may not come back tomorrow, she may not come back next week or in the next month. But Liam, we'll get her back." Emily sniffled.

We were all silent for a while. Her words ran through my mind.

'I'll never let you go. I promise.' 

Well, I will never let her go. As long as I am alive. As long as I am living and breathing, I will not let Elizabeth Ashton go. If she will fight for me, I will fight back for her.
