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.

11. Surprise Visit

***Beth's POV***
 
-3 months later-
 
For the past three months, I have not yet had a concert where I didn't shed any tears after singing A Thousand Years. The song just had so much meaning and emotion in it. Every day for the past three months I have also received a letter. A letter from Liam. And not once, have I opened one.  I just didn't want to open an envelope and be told lies. Maybe one day i'd open them but not today, not tomorrow, maybe not even in the next year. I looked down at my concert outfit  and sighed. I missed everyone so much.
 
"Beth, are you ready?" Grace asked me.
 
"Yeah." I replied.
 
She handed me my rhinestone covered microphone and I stood in the wing of the stage. Bella was just finishing up. As she hit the last note of The A Team she thanked the crowd and walked off. The lights went out and I took my place on the stage. The intro music to Red began playing as the lights slowly came back on. I began to sing.
 
Loving him is like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street
Faster than the wind, passionate as sin ending so suddenly
Loving him is like trying to change your mind once you're already flying through the free fall
Like the colors in autumn, so bright just before they lose it all
 
Losing him was blue like I'd never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Loving him was red
 
Touching him was like realizing all you ever wanted was right there in front of you
Memorizing him was as easy as knowing all the words to your old favorite song
Fighting with him was like trying to solve a crossword and realizing there's no right answer
Regretting him was like wishing you never found out that love could be that strong
 
Losing him was blue like I'd never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
But loving him was red
Oh, red
Burning red
 
Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echoes
Tell myself it's time now, gotta let go
But moving on from him is impossible
When I still see it all in my head
Burning red
Darling it was red
 
Oh, losing him was blue like I'd never known
Missing him was dark grey all alone
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody you never met
'Cause loving him was red
Yeah, yeah, red
We're burning red
 
And that's why he's spinnin' 'round in my head
Comes back to me, burning red
Yeah, yeah
 
'Cause love was like driving a new Maserati down a dead-end street
 
As I finished the song I grinned at the crowd who was screaming. I began to sing Love Story next. Soon it came time to do Twitter questions.
 
"Okay so the first question is from @Ashie_All_The_Way: Elizabeth, what is the most emotional song you sing?" I read off.
 
I turned to the crowd.
 
"I'd have to say the most emotional one is definitely A Thousand Years." I told the crowd. "The next question is from @Lauren_Ashie: If you could choose any one person to be with you right now who would it be?... Well... I don't know about any one person but right now, honestly, I wouldn't be happier to have all of my friends with me."
 
I sighed and looked out into the crowd.
 
"The next question is from @MaddieLawrence11: What is your favorite band?" I read off. "Well my favorite band would probably have to be either Little Mix or One Direction. I know Perrie from Little Mix quite well and I love her music. And One Direction, I know all five of them very well and they have amazing music." I smiled.
 
I answered a few more questions before my next song, Ours. When I finally got to A Thousand Years I tried my hardest not to let the tears fall. As soon as I finished the song I thanked the crowd and walked off stage. Grace immediately pulled me into a hug and I let the tears fall.
 
"You need him Beth." Grace sighed.
 
I pulled out of the hug and faced her. "He hurt me Grace. Even four months after the breakup, it still hurts."
 
"I know honey." She said.
 
She pulled me back into the hug and we just stood there for a while. Stephanie came running over grinning.
 
"Um Beth, there are some people here to see you." She grinned.
 
I wiped the tears off my cheeks and raised my eyebrows. "Really? People other than fans?"
 
She nodded and grinned. She pointed behind me and I turned around. I saw the people walking towards me and I almost screamed when I saw the eight people walking over. Louis, Harry, Liam, Niall, Zayn, Miranda, Emily and El.
 
"Oh my god! What are all of you doing here?!" I asked, rushing over to them, pulling them all into huge hugs.
 
"We told you we would come." Louis grinned.
 
"But- how- what? I thought you were coming at the end of tour! And how did I not know you were coming?!" I asked, looking at all my friends. 
 
"We are still coming at the end of tour. Beth, we can't wait 6 months to see you." Miranda told me.
 
"Oh my god. I missed you guys so much." I told them.
 
"You have no idea how much we missed you." El told me.
 
I grinned at her. "Yeah well I haven't seen you in like 7 months! I missed you El!"
 
I pulled her into a hug.
 
"Thank you for keeping Louis company while I was gone." She smiled.
 
"Of course. Well come on lets go to the dressing room." I said.
 
They followed me into my dressing room and I grabbed a bottle of water from the mini fridge.
 
"We saw the concert. Oh my god. Beth it was amazing." Emily told me.
 
"Thank you." I smiled. "Wait... wheres Perrie?"
 
"On tour with her band." Zayn told me.
 
I groaned. "Seriously? She better be coming in August."
 
"She will." Zayn grinned.
 
"So we saw you were crying after your concert are you okay?" Harry asked.
 
I sat down in one of the chairs and Grace walked in.
 
"Shes been crying after every concert since tour started." Grace informed them.
 
"Grace!" I scolded.
 
"Hon, they're your friends. They deserve to know." Grace said.
 
"Why though?"Niall asked.
 
"Uhm... A Thousand Years is just really... it has a lot of meaning in it and its really emotional." I said, avoiding eye contact with Liam.
 
"Beth?" Miranda sighed.
 
"Yes?" 
 
"You and Liam need to make up." She said.
 
I glanced at Liam. "Why?"
 
"Because lets face it, neither of you are the same without each other." Louis said.
 
"Its been four months Beth. Its time to let him talk." El said.
 
I glanced at Liam who was giving me hopeful eyes.
 
"When i'm ready." I sighed. "How long are all of you here for?"
 
"We leave tomorrow night." Niall told me.
 
"Tomorrow night?" I asked.
 
They nodded.
 
"Beth can I talk to you for a moment?" Louis asked. "In private?"
 
I nodded. We both stood up and walked out of the dressing room.
 
"Beth. We leave tomorrow night. You won't see us for another three months. That means you have 24 hours to make up with Liam or else you will  have to wait until tour ends." Louis said.
 
I looked at the ground then back up at him. "Louis... I don't think any of you realize just how much he hurt me."
 
"I know but Beth, neither of you are the same. Liam barely sings anymore, he only sings when he has to. At times he seems like he's not even all there. And you? You cry after every single concert because in A Thousand Years, you describe how you will love him for a thousand years, forever. You two need each other Beth. Please talk to him? For me?" He asked.
 
"Louis... i'm sorry. I- I just cant." I whispered.
 
"Its okay." He whispered back, pulling me into a hug. "You are going to have to talk to him sometime you know."
 
I sighed. "I know."
 
"Come on. Lets go back inside." He said.
 
I nodded an followed him back into the dressing room. We reclaimed our seats.
 
"So where are all of you staying tonight?" I asked.
 
"We're in a hotel near the bus lot." Harry told me.
 
I groaned and turned to Grace. "They can't stay on the buses?"
 
She shook her head. "They already asked if they could. Theres almost no room. Thats why when they come on tour in August Simon is getting another bus. I mean on your bus you have your dancers so thats seven people and on the other bus theres six. It would be just too crowded." 
 
I sighed. "Fine." I turned to everyone else. "Are you coming to tomorrow nights concert?"
 
"Yeah. We have to leave right after though." Niall told me.
 
"This is what I hate most about tour, having to be away from you guys." I sighed.
 
"We feel the same way about our tours" Louis said.
 
"Can we at least come back to the buses to see what they look like?" Miranda asked.
 
"Mir you've been on a tour bus before." I laughed.
 
"I know but I want to see yours." She grinned.
 
"Alright." I turned to Grace. "Can they at least come back to the buses?"
 
"Yes but they can't stay for long. You need to be asleep by 10." She said.
 
"Gracee. Can you let that dumb rule slide just this once. Its not every day that my best friends show up for a surprise visit on tour.” I told her.
 
Grace sighed. “I suppose. But just this once.”
 
I ran and gave her a huge hug. “Thank you! You are the best Graciannaaa.”
 
“Graciana? That’s a new one.” She smirked.
 
“A new one? How many names have you made for her?” Louis smirked.
 
“Well theres Gracie, Gracey Boo, Gracey Bear, Gray and now Graciana.” I grinned.
 
“What is it with tour managers that makes you give them lots of nicknames?” Harry laughed.
 
“I don’t know. Paul has told me all of the nicknames that you boys made up for him.” Grace smirked.
 
“Oh god… we’ve made up so many.” Niall said.
 
Grace left a few minutes after that. Miranda, Emily, Niall, Liam, Louis and Zayn were sitting on the couches and there was no more room.
 
“Theres no more room on the couches!” I gasped.
 
“You can sit on my lap.” Miranda grinned.
 
I walked over to Miranda and sat on her lap. I turned to Harry.
 
“Harry… theres something Mir and I need to tell you.” I grinned.
 
“I’m so sorry Harry. I didn’t want you to find out like this.” Mir smirked.
 
Harry pretended to cry. “How could you?”
 
“Awe does someone need a hug?” Louis asked, getting up and giving him a hug.
 
Harry smirked at El. “Sorry El. I stole your boyfriend. Hes mine now.”
 
El gasped. “Lou! Fine then Em is mine.”
 
El scooted next to Emily and hugged her.
 
Niall raised his eyebrows at Emily and El.
 
“We are so weird.” I laughed.
 
“We really are. We can’t be weird without you though.” Mir told me.
 
“Well I guess you can be weird with me in like two and a half months.” I sighed.
 
“I can’t wait until August.” El groaned.
 
“I know. Me too.” I replied.
