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.


29. Yes

***Liam's POV***


Yes. She said yes. Elizabeth Ashton said yes. I took her face into my hands and pressed my lips to hers. I could hear everyone cheering in the background but it didn't matter. At this moment it felt like Beth and I were the only two people on hearth. The best part? She was mine. I finally pulled away and I came back to reality.

"Finally!" I heard Emily say.

I stared into her bright blue eyes and grinned.

"I love you." I told her.

"I love you too." She replied with a wide smile.

"Lets leave the two of them alone." Miranda whispered.

Out of the corner of my eye I could see them slowly walking back to the car. I took Beth's hand, intertwining our fingers and we began walking along the beach.

"Remember our first date?" She asked.

"It was on a beach... like this one." I smiled.

"It was one of the most perfect days of my life." She smiled. "You know, do you ever wonder where we'd be if you hadn't asked me if you could color with me 15 years ago?" 

"I may be sprinting in the Olympics... or maybe a gym teacher. You? I think you would have been discovered anyway with your incredible voice. You would be famous." I told her.

"See but neither of us would be in the place we are today without  each other." She said.

"You know what I find amazing?" I asked.

"What?" She replied.

"The fact that today... we have been best friends for 15 years. 15 years ago I was standing there in my plaid shirt asking you if I could color with you. 15 years ago, I met the girl that I fell in love with. And the fact that you are here, standing beside me right now. Its almost unreal." I told her.

We walked in silence for a while, the sound of the waves filled our ears. Every few minutes he would squeeze my hand. After a while we sat down in the sand.

"Lets go swimming." I suggested.

"Might as well seeing that the girls made me wear my swim suit." I smirked.

I kissed her shoulder.

"Thats because I told them to." I mumbled into her shoulder.

We stood up and I took off my shirt and she took off her skirt and top leaving her in her swim suit. She is absolutely the most beautiful girl on the planet. We walked down to the water and I pulled her into my arms.

"You have no idea how amazing it feels to call you mine again." I told her.

Her eyes shined in the moonlight.

"I have a pretty good idea." She grinned.

I held her even tighter and grinned at her. "I love you so much Bethie."

"I love you Liam." She replied.

I slowly and softly pressed my lips to hers creating the familiar sparks, fireworks and bombs. This girl was the only one for me. I knew then and there that I could never possibly love anyone or anything as much as I love her because not a single one would add up to her. She was my everything.
