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.


17. No One Will Make Her Shine Brighter Than You Did

***Eleanor's POV***

I was sitting alone at home and the boys had gone to have a meeting with Simon. Everything was silent until I heard the little buzz from my phone that was sitting on the counter. I picked it us and saw that I had a text from Beth.

Hey El? -Beth

Yeah hun? -El

I need some advice... -Beth

Alrighty -El

So um... my drummer, Brandon, he sorta asked me out on a date... -Beth

My eyes widened. What? Beth... and her drummer? Oh god please no.

What did you say? -El

I said okay. The thing is El, I don't know if i'm ready -Beth

I don't think you are over Liam. I think you love him too much to move on. -El

The thing is though, a part of me will always love Liam but I still hate him so much or what he did to me. -Beth

Beth honey, follow your heart. Do what your heart tells you to do. If its dating your drummer, so be it. -El

You don't sound too enthusiastic to the idea of this -Beth

He misses you babe. A lot. I'm serious, hes not the same and neither are you. -El

She didn't text back for at least 5 minutes.

I know...- Beth

Just don't use Brandon as a rebound guy. He can't just be the backup plan to get your mind off of Liam. - El

I won't. Thanks El. -Beth

Anytime babe. See you in August. :)  -El

I set my phone down. A few moments later the front door opened and I heard voices.

"El, babe, the lads, Mir and Em are are!" Louis called.

I walked out to the living room.

"I need to tell you guys something." I sighed.

"Just from the look on your face its not good." Harry said.

I nodded. "I was texting Beth earlier..." I looked at Liam who's head shot up when I said her name. "Her drummer, Brandon asked her on a date."

I saw Liam's face go pale. "What did she say?" He choked out.

I sighed. "She said yes. Shes not sure about it though."

"I've lost her. I've completely lost her. I am so fucking stupid." Liam cried.

"Liam, like I said, she's not sure. If it was meant to be, she'll come back to you. This may actually be good. If she starts dating someone else, maybe she'll realize that no one can add up to you." I told him.

I saw Liam on the verge of tears. "But what if it doesn't work El?! What if she falls for him and she forgets all about me?! I'll be alone for the rest of my life because I know that no matter how hard I try, no one will add up to her."

Liam turned towards the door and walked out.

"I'll be right back." Louis said.

***Liam's POV***

I walked out the door and shut it behind me. As I was walking towards my car i heard the door open behind me.

"Liam!" Louis called.

I turned around and Louis rushed over to me.

"Liam, she loves you. You may not have been my favorite person for the past 5 months but that doesn't mean I don't care. Yes, you two did break up because you made a horribly stupid mistake, but when you two were together you shined. I have never seen you look at a girl the way you look at Beth and I could see the same thing in Beth's eyes. What you two have mate, its true love. Sure, she may date other guys right now but it will cause her to realize that no one can replace you. No one will make her shine brighter than you did." Louis told me.

I just stood there a moment the words rushing through my mind. No one will make her shine brighter than you did. I gave Louis a hug.

"Thank you." I told him.

I went home after that and when I arrived in my driveway I parked my car and got out. I walked inside and grabbed a pice of paper and a pen and began to write a letter to her. Not once has she responded but that won't stop me.

My dearest Beth,
        Every time your name is mentioned, my knees go weak. Every time I look at a picture of you, it makes me hate myself even more. Though I just learned that you have moved on, I won't give up. You mean more to me than everything on this planet. So when he holds you tight and kisses you, I hope you remember how I did the same. When he takes your hand, when he makes you smile, remember how that used to be me. I wish I could tell you just how much I love you in words but that is impossible because I love you more than words can describe. I hope you remember that there is not a moment of every day that I don't love you and there is not a single day for the rest of my life and beyond that I won't love you. You have shown me what it means to love someone more than anything. You have blinded me. I love you, forever and always.

All of my love,
