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.


10. The Concert

***Beth’s POV***
I woke up at 9:15 and walked out to the lounge. No one was awake yet so I took my laptop out and logged onto Skype. Almost instantly I got a video chat request from Louis. I clicked the accept button and Louis’s face appeared on the screen.
“Good morning!” He said.
“Good afternoon to you.” I grinned.
“Its so boring in my house. Its also kinda scary. I hear things I’ve never heard before.” He whispered, sounding cautious.
“So just because I leave, your house is suddenly haunted?” I laughed.
“Yes! Come back! I don’t want to get eaten by ghosts!” He whined.
“Sorry Lou, I can’t leave tour. I haven’t even had my first concert yet.” I smiled.
“When did Simon or Grace say we can come and visit?” He asked.
“The last two weeks of tour.” I groaned.
His eyes widened. “But that’s like… six months away!”
“I know! But both Grace and Simon are stubborn.” I sighed.
“Maybe if I get tickets to your concert then I can come.” He grinned.
“You do realize the good seats are like… 600 pounds?” I laughed.
“I do realize that. But if I have to pay that kind of money to see you I will. I’ll bring El too!” He grinned
“You better! I miss her!” I told him.
“I do too. Shes coming to visit next weekend and I am so excited.” He smiled.
“What?! Why couldn’t she come a week early! Then I could have been there!” I whined.
“I know. You can skype us though.” He said.
“Its not the same though!” I groaned.
I heard Louis’s doorbell ring in the background.
“The lads are here with Em, Mir and Perrie. They’ll be happy to see you. I’ll be right back.” He said.
He got up and a few moments later reappeared on the screen with everyone behind him.
“Bethhhh!!!” Miranda said happily.
“Mirrrr!!” I smiled.
“We miss you already!” Harry told me.
“I miss you guys too.” I told them.
“Are you excited for your concert tonight?” Zayn asked.
“Half nervous, half excited.” I smiled.
“That’s how we felt the day of our very first concert.” Niall told me.
“We’ll be looking for the videos of the concert tonight on You Tube.” Perrie grinned.
I rolled my eyes. “So all of you are coming the last week of my tour so like in August! I think.”
“What?! That’s like… six months!” Harry whined.
“I know Harry. Louis wanted to get tickets to one of my earlier concerts. Maybe you can go with him.” I said.
Harry turned to Louis. “Can I come with you?”
“All of you can come with me!” Louis grinned.
“Maybe you can get us backstage when we come.” Emily said.
“Babe, of course I can get you backstage. Its my concert.” I grinned.
“You know who misses you the most?” Miranda grinned.
“Who?” I asked.
They all looked at Liam who was standing in the background.
“Liam.” Niall smirked.
I was silent for a moment. “Oh. I didn’t think he would miss me at all.”
“Beth of course I miss you.” Liam sighed.
I rolled my eyes. “Whatever. Maybe I would actually believe that if you hadn’t lost all of my trust.”
“Do you at least still love him?” Emily asked.
I was silent. “Of course I do. Liam, I will always love you. You can tell me the same but every time you tell me you love me, all I see is myself walking in on you and … her sucking faces.”
“Let me prove to you that I truly do love you.” Liam pleaded.
I sighed. “You can try but that doesn’t mean I will believe it.”
Becca walked into the lounge.
“Morning Bec.” I smiled.
“Hey there Bethhh.” She said. She came over and sat next to me.
“In case you all forgot, this is Becca. Shes one of my dancers.” I smiled.
“Hi Becca!” They all said.
“Hello.” She smiled.
“So Becca, do you think Liam and Beth should get back together?” Miranda asked.
I laid my head back and groaned.
“Yeah. Beth, you and Liam were the cutest couple on the planet.” Bec told me.
“Can we please stop talking about this. Lets talk about um… the ghosts in Louis’s house!” I said
Harry turned to Louis. “There are ghosts in this house and you didn’t tell me?!”
“Yep. And spiders. And monsters and zombies.” Louis grinned.
“Oh my god why do we always meet here. Lets meet in a house that’s a lot less… uh.. creepy.” Perrie said.
“I’m just kidding don’t worry.” Louis smiled.
“So I have to go. I’ll talk to all of you before the concert okay?” I asked.
“Awe do you have to?” Louis asked.
“Yes.” I told him.
“Fineee.” He said. “Byeee Bethhhh!”
“Bye Beth!” They all said. “Bye Becca!”
“Bye.” I said.
I hung up and closed my laptop.
“You have amazing friends.” Becca smiled.
“I know. They’re not just my friends, they’re my family. I kinda owe my life to them.” I told her.
“Why?” She asked.
“It’s a long story but we have a lot of time. So I met the boys in about June of last year. I quickly became friends with them. They soon found out… well they guessed about my father abusing me. Liam told me that I should come live with him until they went back on tour. He also asked me to come on tour with him. I accepted because I was tired of the abuse. I stayed at Liam’s that night and the next day Liam and I had to go to my house to get my dog Maybelle. Well we waited for my father to leave and went inside. Unfortunately while we were there my father came back and Liam and I hid in the closet. Well… he found us and began punching Liam. Liam tried to fight back but my dad… hes a big fighter. After Liam was on the ground he grabbed me and began hitting me and punching me. Liam had texted the other boys while we were in the closet and while my father was hitting me they came in and Louis ended up peeling my father off of me. The four of them took him down. If they hadn’t come, my father would have killed me.” I told her.
Becca was silent, her eyes wide. “Oh my god… how can a father do that to his own daughter?!”
I sighed. “I don’t know.”
-Skipping to the concert-
I sat on the couch backstage in my outfit polyvore.com/lt/set?id=72626738. It was right before the concert started. I took out my phone and went onto skype. Louis was online so I pressed the video call button. He picked up instantly.
“Bethhh!!!” Louis screeched.
“Louis are you trying to make me deaf?” I laughed.
“No sorry.” He smiled.
“Are you talking to Beth?” Miranda called in the background.
“Yeah!” Louis called back.
Soon everyone was huddled around Louis.
“Beth!!” They all shouted.
“Hey there.” I smiled.
“Are you about to go on stage?” Harry asked.
“Yeah. Bella, my opening act is on right now.” I told them.
“I want to see your outfit.” Perrie grinned.
I stood up and showed them my outfit.
“Oh my god you look so beautiful.” Emily squealed.
“Well thank you. So what have you been up to today?” I asked everyone.
“Well, we watched a few movies, Perrie, Em and Mir made cookies and ended up making a mess.” Louis smirked.
“The cookies were amazing though.” Niall told me.
“Oh I bet.” I smiled.
“Can you show us around?” Zayn asked.
“Sure.” I told him.
I showed them around the dressing room. I walked out of the dressing room and found Stephanie, my stylist.
“Stephhhhh. Come say hi.” I said, putting the camera towards her.
“Hi.” She smiled.
“Oh look and there’s Graceee!” I said.
I rushed over to grave and gave her a huge hug.
“Say hi to the boys, Miranda, Emily and Perrie.” I told her.
“Hi.” She said.
“Grace, do you know Paul Higgins?” Harry asked.
“Yes I do. He is a good friend of mine.” She smiled.
“Does Beth annoy you as much as we annoy Paul?” Louis asked.
Grace turned to me. “Well I don’t know. I guess we’ll have to let time tell.” She smirked.
“Oh you know you love me Grace. Just like Paul loves the boys.” I grinned.
“Yes. Oh and you’re on in 5 minutes.” Grace told me.
“Okay.” I said.
I walked over to the side wing of the stage and watched as Bella sang The A Team. I turned the camera towards the stage.
“Bella is a really goo singer isn’t she?” I asked.
“Yeah. Not as amazing as you but she has a career in music.” Louis said.
“Oh stop it. She is amazing too.” I grinned. “Okay so I have to go. I would talk to you after the concert but I assume most of you will be asleep. I’ll talk to you tomorrow.”
“Okay. Bye Beth! Good luck!” Harry said.
“Byeee!!” They all said.
I hung up and handed my phone to Grace. The microphone guy handed me my rhinestone covered microphone and I stood there waiting to go on. Bella finished up her song and grinned at the crowd.
“So who is ready to hear the amazing Elizabeth Ashton?!” Bella asked the crowd.
The crowd went absolutely wild.
The lights went out and Bella walked off stage. I walked on the stage while the lights were still off. They slowly began to turn on and the crowd screamed as I slowly began to appear. I began to sing my first song, Red. As I sang I could feel the excitement rise inside of me. When the last song approached I sang A Thousand Years the crowd screamed the words along with me.
“Heart beats fast, colors and promises, how to be brave how can I love when I’m afraid to fall watching you stand alone, all of my doubts, suddenly goes away somehow, one step closer. I have died every day waiting for you, darling don’t be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years, I’ll love you for a thousand more. Time stands still, beauty in all she is, I will be brave, I will not let anything take away whats standing in front of me, every breath, every hour has come to this, one step closer. I have died every day waiting for you darling don’t be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years, I’ll love you for a thousand more. And all along I believed I would find you, time has brought your heart to me I have loved you for a thousand years, I’ll love you for a thousand more. One step closer, one step closer. I have died every day waiting for you, darling don’t be afraid I have loved you for a thousand years, I’ll love you for a thousand more. And all along I believed I would find you, time has brought your heart to me, I have loved you for a thousand years, I’ll love you for a thousand more.” I finished the song.
I felt tears in my eyes as I sang the song, remembering what it was about. How I had loved Liam for a thousand years and how I’d love him for a thousand more. I thanked the crowd and walked offstage, the tear slipping down my cheek. Grace walked over to me.
“You okay?” She asked.
“Yeah. I’m fine. Its just that song… its really emotional for me.” I sighed.
“What is it about that song though? Many of the other songs are about Liam too.” She said.
I wiped another tear. “I know but that song, it describes how long it felt I had to wait for him and how I would always love him.”
“Do you? Still love him?” She asked.
I slid a finger under my eye and wiped yet another tear and nodded.
“Honey, you need him. Some people can live without the people they love but you, you need him.” She told me.
“I can’t Grace. I just can’t. He broke me and I don’t think I can ever forgive him.” I told her.
“You will. He is your rock. I know I don’t know much about you two but when you were together, you glowed.” Grace said.
“Whatever. Don’t I have a meet and greet to get to now?” I asked.
“Yes.” She replied.
