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.


7. Today Is The Day

***Beth's POV***

-3 weeks later-

Today was finally the day.  The day I leave for tour, the day I leave my friends... my family. Though three weeks had passed, I still had yet to speak to Liam. Well, looks like he'll have to wait 6 months to tell me 'his side of the story' as everyone calls it. To me it is just another excuse. I sipped out of bed and walked downstairs. Louis was in the kitchen eating a bowl of cereal.

"I can't believe you're leaving for tour today." He groaned.

"Aww is someone going to miss me?" I asked.

"Yes. I will miss my little sister." He told me.

"Don't worry. I'll invite you to come to a few concerts." I smiled.

"You better. I mean look how far you've come since we met you. Its going to be a year in June. When I first met you, you were just a normal senior in high school... I mean you were Liam's best friend but not everyone knew you as that. Now look at you... you're going on your first tour." He grinned.

"I know. Its crazy. Its still unreal to me." I told him.

The doorbell rang.

"I'll get it." I told him.

I walked to the door and opened it. There was everyone...

"What are you guys doing here?" I grinned.

"You actually thought we would let you go on tour without saying goodbye did you?" Harry asked.

"No. I didn't expect you to show up here though." I said.

"We want to spend every moment with you until you get on that plane." Emily told me.

"Well come in then." I smiled.

I let everyone in and led them to the kitchen.

"Louissss everyone decided to show up." I told Louis.

He raised his eyebrows as everyone walked into the kitchen.

"Well good morning to all of you too." He smirked.

"I can't believe you're leaving today." Miranda groaned.

"Well believe it babe cause I am. Don't worry though. I'll invite all of you to some of my concerts." I smiled.

"Even Liam?" Niall asked.

I glanced at Liam. "I-I don't know. I suppose so. I mean he's your friend... might as well invite the whole party."

"Hes your friend too Beth. Hes your best friend." Emily said.

I looked at her. "He stopped being my best friend when he cheated on me with his damn ex girlfriend!"

I walked out of the room and walked upstairs. I slammed the bedroom door behind me and walked into the bathroom. I took a quick shower and changed into this . As I was looking through ll of my jewelry my eyes landed on a necklace. One of the necklaces that Liam had given me. I sighed and picked it up and looked at it for a moment. I'm not afraid to admit, I miss him... a lot. I still love him very much but he broke me. I sorted through the rest of my jewelry and found the other necklace he had given me. I finally found the ring. The ring he had given me where we promised to love each other forever and always. I felt a tear slip down my cheek as I thought of that memory. I gathered the necklaces and ring and walked back downstairs. I walked back into the kitchen and walked over to Liam. I took his hand and placed the necklaces and ring into his hand and closed his fingers over them. He looked down at them for a moment.

"Beth please don't do this. I gave these to you. Please." He begged.

"You gave those to me because you made me believe that you actually loved me. " I told him, not making eye contact with him.

I turned and walked over to the kitchen counter.

"But I do love you Beth. I always have... I always will." He said.

I turned. "You can stop lying through your teeth now Liam. I don't need to hear your bullshit." I glared. 

"I'm not lying Beth!You just don't know the whole story!" He told me.

"The whole story?! You mean your fucking excuses to why you lied to me through our entire relationship!?" I asked.

"If you just give me a moment to tell you everything..." He said.

"Sorry. I don't have time for excuses." I hissed. I turned to everyone else. "I need to go. All of you can come if you want. My flight is in three hours and Simon wanted to see me."

"Alright." Louis said. "We'll come."

We all walked outside and split up into two cars. In my car was Louis, Harry and Miranda In the other car was Zayn, Perrie, Niall, Emily and Liam.

***Liam's POV***

As Niall drove I looked down at the necklaces and ring in my hand. 

"You'll get her back Liam. Don't worry." Perrie reassured me.

"She thinks I lied to her. She thinks I don't love her with all my heart." I mumbled, my head rested on the window.

"Well you do. We will help you get her back. You just need to show her that you truly do love her." Niall said.

"And you need to tell her what happened. What actually happened. Danielle's plan." Emily told me.

"She won't let me explain. She'll just say its another excuse." I sighed.

"Well we promise, by the end of this year, you two will be back together." Zayn said.

I looked out the window and watched as buildings passed by. We soon arrived at Simon's office. We all got out of the cars and walked inside. We all rode up to the top floor.

***Beth's POV***

I walked  to Simon's office and knocked on the door. Everyone else waited outside.

"Come in." He said from behind the door.

I walked in and Simon looked up.

"Beth, its nice to see you." He smiled.

"Nice to see you too. Its been a month since our last meeting." I said.

"Yes it has." He said. "So I am sorry to hear about the breakup with you and Liam."

I sighed and nodded.

"So about tour. As you know your first concert is tomorrow night in San Diego, California. Make sure you follow tour song list. Your opening act, Isabella is going to be singing 4 songs. Your stylist Stephanie has already picked out all of your concert outfits. You will make two outfit changes each concert." Simon told me.

"Okay I assume Grace knows after which songs I go change?" I asked.

He nodded. "Yes. She will give you all the details."


He handed me an envelope. "This is your plane ticket."

"Okay. Does everyone else already have theirs?" I asked.

"Yes. You will meet them at the airport. Also, I have switched around the bus arrangements. You will be with your dancers and everyone else will be on the other bus." He told me.

"Okay. I'm just wondering, when the boys and girls come and visit me on tour for a few concerts, where will they be because the busses are already packed." I asked him.

"We'll either have them stay in a hotel or I can get a temporary tour bus for them." He explained.

"Alright." I said.

"If you have anymore questions please just call me. Also, on August 17 you will have a week long break for the VMA awards. You have been nominated for best new artist and best new album." He told me.

My eyes widened. "Wait for two?!"

"Yes. And I feel confident that you will win both of them. It is no secret that you have a fantastic album Beth." He told me.

"Wow. That is amazing. And thank you." I smiled.

"Of course. Now you don't want to miss your flight. You don't need to be there for another two and a half hours so you can spend the remaining time with everyone." He said.

"Alright. I guess i'll see you at the VMAs then. I assume you'll be there... right?" I asked.

"Of course. The boys will be there too. They have been nominated also. One more thing... you have been asked to perform A Thousand Years at the VMAs. Are you up for it. I know the subject of the song is a little hard to think about right now..." He said.

I sighed, thinking about the lyrics to the song. "Y-yeah. I'll do it. I'll have to do it at least 100 times in my concerts anyway."

"Okay. Well i'll see you then. Good luck with your tour and I am very proud of how far you've come." He smiled.

"Bye Simon." I said.

"Bye Beth." 

I walked out of his office and grinned at everyone.

"Guess what?!" I asked excitedly.

"What?" Miranda asked.

"I was just informed that I have been nominated for two moon-men at the VMAs!" I said happily.

"Oh my god are you serious?! Thats amazing Beth!" Louis grinned, hugging me tightly.

"What categories?" Harry grinned.

"Best new artist and best new album." I smiled.

"Well you are both of those so you have to win. We will all vote for you." Emily grinned.

"Wait... Beth... we're nominated in the same category. Simon told us that we were also nominated for best new album." Zayn said.

"Well Zayn... may the best singer win." I winked. "Another thing... I am performing at the VMAs."

"Really? What song?" Niall asked.

I sighed and glanced at Liam. "A Thousand Years."

"Oh... well you'll have to sing it in concert anyway." Niall said.

I nodded slowly. "So, I eed to be at the airport in two and a half hours. Until then, why don't we go do something."

"Starbucks!" Louis almost yelled.

"Yes Louis, we can go to Starbucks." I laughed.

He hugged me tightly. "Thank you! I love you Bethhh!!!!"

"I love you too Louis now give me air!" I laughed.

We all walked out of the building and got back in the cars. We drove to the nearest Starbucks. As soon as we arrived Louis and I raced inside with everyone behind us. We ordered our drinks first. I ordered hot chocolate and he ordered tea. As we all waited for our drinks I scrolled though Twitter. Louis looked over my shoulder as I scrolled though all of the hate.

"Beth don't listen to the haters. The breakup wasn't even your fault." He told me.

I turned to him. "But it was. I wasn't good enough for him."

He pulled me into a hug. "Yes you are Beth. You can't beat 14 years of friendship. Even I can't replace Liam. You may call me your best friend but I could never replace 14 years, the memories."

I sighed and didn't say anything, I just laid my head on his shoulder as he hugged me.
