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.


41. The Faire

***Beth's POV***

I try. I try to be happy, I try to smile, I try to have some kind of faith that everything is going to be okay. Every time I close my eyes I see his glaring back at me. He has me exactly where he wants me. Vulnerable and hopeless. The reason why? I am afraid. I am afraid of not only what he'll do to me but what he'll do to the people I call my family. Liam, Louis, Mir, Em... all of them. All of them but Liam, Mir and Em have only ever known him as a monster but something keeps telling me that somewhere... deep, very deep, my father is locked up, trying to find a way out. Thats what gives me a little bit of hope, that one day I will get my father back. I walked downstairs and found Liam sitting in the kitchen. I walked over to him and sat down in his lap and he wrapped his arms around my waist and buried his head into my shoulder.

"How are you feeling today?" He asked me.

"Peachy." I mumbled.

He only held me tighter.

"I miss your smile. I miss your laugh." He told me.

I sighed. "I- I do too."

He looked up at me with his chocolate brown eyes. 

"What happens to a grape when a man steps on it?" Liam asked out of no where.

I raised my eyebrows at him. " I don't know. A squished grape?"

He smiled. "It lets out a little whine."

I thought about it for a moment. I could feel a smile creeping on my face.

"Where do tough chickens come from?" He asked.

I shrugged.

"Hard boiled eggs." He told me.

"You're so cheesy." I smiled.

"Its okay 'cause my cheesiness got you to smile. Thats all that matters right now." He told me.

I held his face in my hands and kissed him softly. He immediately kissed back and held me tightly.

"I love you." He said against my lips.

"I love you too." I whispered back.

My phone began to ring in my pocket and before I could grab it Liam took it out of my pocket and his jaw clenched.

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

I got off of his lap and he stood up and walked outside. I could see through the window that he was yelling and was clearly angry. We both knew who was on the other line. A few moments later Liam came back in and set my phone onto the counter. He walked over to me and pressed his lips to mine instantly.

"He won't lay a finger on you." He mumbled against my lips.

He kissed me, more passionately this time. My arms found their way around his neck and I ran my fingers through his hair. He lifted me up  and set me on the counter.

"Not a single person is going to make me love you less." He whispered.

Our lips met again and he picked me up, not breaking the kiss. He carried me upstairs and laid me down on our bed. He kissed me more passionately and I returned the passion. He began kissing down my neck and jaw line and I let out a soft moan. I think you know what happens next...

-The next morning-

I woke up and saw that Liam wasn't next to me. I slipped out of bed and slipped some clothes on before walking downstairs. Liam was in the kitchen making breakfast. I walked up behind him and wrapped my arms around him from behind.

"Well look who finally woke up." He smiled.

"Shut up. I love my sleep." I told him.

He turned around and faced me. "And I love you."

He kissed me softly and I smiled into the kiss.

"I love you too." I replied.

My phone began to ring and I picked it up and answered it, Liam's arms still wrapped around me.

"Hello?" I asked.

"Hey Beth." Louis's voice filled my ears.

"Hey Lou." I said.

"So Simon just called me and informed me that the lads and I as well as you have next week off, no recordings, no interviews, nothing. I thought it may be a good idea to take a small holiday. I think we all need it." Louis told me.

I smiled. "Where though? Thats sounds life a brilliant idea."

"I was thinking either California or Aspen. So beach or skiing?" He asked.

"I don't know. Hold on." I said.

I took the phone away from my ear and turned to Liam.

"We all have next week off and Louis thinks we should all go on a holiday. He thinks we should go to either California or Aspen. What do you think?" I asked.

"Well we already went to Australia earlier this year and we went to the beach there so lets go to Aspen." Liam said.

I nodded and put the phone back to my ear. "Liam said Aspen so I'm going to go with Aspen."

"Alright. Thats a majority then. We're going to Aspen!" Louis said happily.

"What day do we leave?" I asked.

"Monday." He told me.

"Alright." I replied.

"One more thing, today theres a faire in town and El wants to go. Do you and Liam want to come too? I've already asked Harry and Mir if they want to come and they said yes." Louis said.

I took the phone away from my ear and turned to Liam again. "Louis was wondering if we wanted to go to the faire with him, El, Harry and Mir."

"Yeah of course." Liam smiled.

"Alright. Yeah we'll come. What time?" I asked.

"1:00. We'll come to pick you up." Louis told me.

"Alright." I replied.

"Bye Beth." Louis said.

"Bye Lou." I replied and hung up. 

I set my phone onto the counter and smiled at Liam.

"How did I get so lucky to have you?" He asked.

"It wasn't luck. It was fate. Fate is what brought us together." I told him.


I had just finished putting on my outfit and I walked downstairs. As soon as Louis got here we walked out and got into the car. El, Harry and Mir were already in the car. As we rode the radio was on and Ours was playing. I was El and Mir grin and they began singing it like crazy.

"Elevator buttons and morning air stranger silence makes me wanna take the stairs. If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares but right now, my time is theirs. Seems like theres always someone who disapproves. They'll judge it like they know about me and you." El and Mir sang at the top of their lungs.

I smirked at my friends.

"I saw that smirk. Don't you love us? We're your fans, you have to love us." El grinned.

"Well I don't have to." I smirked.

"So you don't love us?" Mir whined.

"Of course I love you both! I'd love you two even if you hated my songs." I smiled.

Finally when we arrived at the faire we slipped our Ray Bans on so we wouldn't get noticed by fans. Liam took his hand in mine and intertwined our fingers. We got unlimited ride wristbands and walked into the faire. 

"What ride should we go on first?" I asked.

"That one!" El said, pointing to a large one.

We walked over to it and stood in line. Liam hand his arms wrapped around my waist from behind and his chin was rested on my shoulder. As soon as we were at the front of the line we took our sunglasses off and we heard a few screams from the huge line.

"Oh my god its Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles!" 

"I love you Harry!"

"Holy shit its Elizabeth Ashton!"

People kept yelling out different things and we waved to the fans. As the ride pulled out of the station Liam took my hand and intertwined our fingers. Neither of us were afraid of roller coasters but its still comforting to hold someones hand. It may also be an excuse to hold his hand... When we got to the top of the huge slope I looked down and saw how high we were. As the ride came rushing down the large slope we all screamed. Finally when the ride pulled back into the station we got out and slipped our Ray Bans on. A few fans came up to us.

"Liam can we have your autograph?" A tall blonde girl asked, she honestly looked like a carrot. A carrot with bleached hair.

"Sure love." Liam smiled.

After Liam signed his autograph they turned to me and looked at me with disgust.

"Honestly Liam, how can you stand to walk around with that piece of trash? Aren't you worried about her rubbing off on you? Seriously she looks like some ugly slut." The carrot asked.

I saw anger in Liam's eyes. He was about to speak when I stopped him. I turned to the carrot.

"You call me a piece of trash? You call me an ugly slut? Sweetheart, how can you possibly say that when all I could wipe 99% of your beauty off with a wet kleenex. Even then it wouldn't be enough because you wear at least 10 pounds of makeup. And a slut? Really? At least I don't walk around in tight spandex skirts that show half of my ass. And don't get me started on that shirt that barley even holds those clearly fake boobs. Did you steal it off of a five year old or something? So you tell me that I'm a piece of trash and that I'm an ugly slut when in reality, you're describing yourself. Maybe if you tried just being yourself sometime and wear actual clothes, no makeup, maybe you would act like less of a bitch to people you don't even know. You should try it sometime, it may serve you well." I snapped at her.

She just looked at me with wide eyes. She opened her mouth to say something but nothing came out. She hurried away and I turned back to the boys, Mir and El who's jaws were dropped.

"That... was amazing." Liam grinned.

"That really was. I can't believe you just said that to her." Harry laughed.

"I never knew innocent little Beth could even say that." Louis smirked.

I raised my eyebrows. "Innocent little Beth? Sure whatever you say old man."

"By the way Beth, you're not a piece of trash, you're definitely not ugly and your are absolutely not a slut." Liam told me.

I smiled at him. "Thanks."

He kissed me and we all walked to the next ride. Liam was looking down at his phone and he smiled.

"You'll never guess whats trending right now." Liam smirked.

"What?" I asked.

"#GoElizabeth and #ElizabethVSCarrotGirl" Liam laughed.

"Carrot girl?! So i'm not the only one? And how did they even know?" I asked.

"There were videos." Liam told me.

"She really was a carrot wasn't she?" Mir laughed.

I nodded. "Hey Liam, remember at Justin Bieber's party you were trying to make me jealous with a carrot just like her?" 

Liam smirked. "Oh yeah. Maybe they're related."

"You weren't making me jealous by the way." I smiled.

"Well you were making me jealous." He told me.

"Why because I was dancing with Louis?" I asked.

Liam shrugged. "Yeah. I thought for sure that Louis was your mystery guy."

"And really, you turned out to by my mystery guy." I grinned at him.

"And you turned out to be my mystery girl. I will never forget that night." Liam told me.

"Nor will I." I smiled.

He held me close to him and I just stood there comfortably in his arms. Thats exactly where I belonged.
