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.


19. The Kiss

***Beth's POV***

In only a few moment I will walk off of this bus, ready to go on a date. The thing is, I don't think I'm ready. Who knows though, maybe Brandon will help me get my mind off of Liam. I sighed. His face popped into my mind, his chocolate brown eyes, his dazzling smile. I quickly snaped out of my daydream as soon as the bus door opened.

"Wow... you look so beautiful." Brandon told me with a grin on his face.

I looked down at my outfit www.polyvore.com/lt/set?id=71834641. "Well thank you." I said, giving him a smile.

"Of course." He said.

I stood up and followed him off of the bus. We got into a car and Bran began to drive away from the bus lot. The drive was silent as we rode, it wasn't awkward though. Soon enough he pulled into a restaurant and we got out of the car. We were immediately swarmed by paps who came from all different directions. Bran pulled me inside and a waitress seated us at a table. As we looked over the menu I decided to order the chicken alfredo. After we ordered our food Bran smiled at me.

"You know you're beautiful right?" He asked.

I gave him a small smile. "No."

He raised his eyebrows. "No? Well you are. From the moment I laid my eyes on you I thought you were the most beautiful girl in the world."

His words echoed in my mind and they sounded all to familiar. Liam had told me that before... many times. I stayed silent.

"Beth?" he asked.

"Hm?" I replied.

"Why did you agree to go on this date with me when he is clearly still on your mind?" Bran asked.

My eyes met his. There was no point in lying. "Because I need to move on. I need to accept that he and I are no more. If I don't let him go then how can I search for the one for me?"

Bran smiled. "Well I hope I can be the one to help you move on."

I smiled at him. "Who knows. Lets just stop talking about him. Rule number one, no talking about our exes."

"Deal." He replied. "So, I know that I know a little bit about you but I want to know more."

"Okay lets play 20 questions. I answer the question then you answer the same one." I replied.

"Full name?" He asked.

"Elizabeth Leah Ashton." I told him.

"Mine is Brandon Luke Taft." He told me.

"Okay my turn, hometown?" I asked.

"San Francisco, California." He said.

"Wolverhampton, England." I said.

"Favorite color?" He asked.

"Baby blue or pink." I said.

"Cobalt blue." He told me.

"Favorite food?" He asked me.

"Anything Italian." I smiled.

"Chicken." He told me.

A few minutes later the waitress came with our food. As I ate began to think back to my first date with Liam, how I had eaten exactly the same thing. Maybe my life was repeating itself. I sure hope not.

"Something on your mind?" Bran asked.

I looked up into his blue eyes.

"Oh uh... nothing." I mumbled.

"Its something. You can tell me." He said kindly.

"I ate the exact same thing on my first date with... him." I sighed.

Bran looked at me with sad eyes. "Well I can assure you Beth, I am not him."

I gave him a small smile. "I'm glad you're not him. I don't need a repeat of my last relationship."

"You know, we have been talking about your past relationship almost this entire time. Its my goal to have you let go of that one and start a new one." He smiled.

After we finished dinner we walked outside and just went for a walk in the cool summer breeze of  Florida.

"Hey Beth can I ask you something?" He asked.

He turned towards me and I nodded.

"Well first let me start off by saying this, from the moment I met you I thought you were amazing and beautiful. As I grew to knew you you became like a best friend to me and I couldn't get you off my mind. Still to this day you are what floods my mind. So here's my question. Elizabeth Leah Ashton, will you do the honor of being my girlfriend?" He asked.

A voice in my head said No! You're still in love with Liam! but I felt a smile spread across my face as the words rolled off my tongue.

"Yes." I replied.

Bran grinned. I felt his soft lips against mine and he pulled me close to him. There was something different about this kiss. Something I hadn't felt when I was with Liam.

No spark.

No bombs.

No nothing.
