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.


49. You're Part Of This Family

***Beth's POV***

Its been about a week since that first text from my father and since then, he hasn't stopped reminding me that he is watching me...every. Single. Second. It is terrifying knowing that he is watching my every move. I know I don't have much time anymore. I know sooner or later he's going to come too close and al hell is going to break loose. In the end, one of us is going to end up broken. I pray that it wont be me or the lads and girls. I would risk my life for them though. I owe my life to them. If there ever comes a time to take desperate measures, I will choose their life over mine any day because of how they have changed my life. To so many people the lads are just another boy band but to me, to me they are the people who picked me up when I fell down and help me rise from the ashes of my past. And for that, I owe them my life.

*** We all sit quietly at the dinner table and I use my fork to pick at my food. No one has felt completely overjoyed since the threats began to be more and more consist. I think we all know that any day now, a tragedy might strike. What we are most afraid of is loosing one of us to that tragedy. My phone buzzed on the table and everyone stopped eating, some still had forks in mid air. All of our eyes glared at my phone, each one of us daring not to look at it. We all knew who it was. I slowly reached for my phone and read the text.

From: Unknown

I know that you know whats coming and theres not a single thing you can do.

Liam looked at the picture attached, it was of us only moments ago.

"Thats it. I am going to find that son of a bitch and I am going to kill him!" Liam yelled, grabbing my phone and running outside.

"Liam! Liam stop!" I shouted, running after him.

"Where the hell are you?! What do you want from us?!" Liam yelled.

I took Liam by the shoulders.

"Liam stop. Hes too strong. We both know that." I whispered.

I took his face into my hands. "Look at me."

His eyes didn't meet mine. He was still searching every corner of our yard for the monster hiding in the shadows.

"God damn it Liam! Look at me!" I yelled.

His chocolate eyes met my blue ones. I could see tears in his eyes. He pulled me into a hug and stroked my hair.

"I don't want to loose you. I can't loose you Beth. I can't." He whispered into my shoulder.

"You won't. I promise if anything happens to me I'll always come back for you. I will come back for you or die trying." I whispered back.

"No. Please no. Please don't say that. You'll be fine. You'll be just fine." He cried.

I didn't respond because I think we both knew the answer to that.

"Beth, please don't talk like that." Louis choked out from behind me.

I turned around and saw my eight friends standing there.

"Louis..." I began.

"No Beth. Stop talking like that. We won't let him hurt you." He said, I could see tears in his eyes.

"I know you don't want to hear me say it but its true. We all know that he all he wants is me. Sooner or later he's going to get me and theres nothing any of you can say or do about it. I- I owe my life to all of you." I mumbled.

Liam pulled me back into the hug and I felt him shaking. I knew he was crying. I knew that all of them were on the verge of tears.

"I can't loose you." Was all Liam could say.

I had never een him like this before. Out of the 14 years that I've known Liam, I have never seen him cry like this into my shoulder. The worst part is, it's my fault.Each tear that slipped down one of their cheeks was my doing. This was my fault, my mess and I only brought them into it. I was just a roadblock in their road to their lives. I was holding them back. We walked back inside and I looked over my shoulder and I could swear I saw his haunting eyes glaring at me from the dark corners of the yard. We got back inside and took our seats at the table. None of us had an appetite anymore. We all just stared off into random directions.

"I'm sorry." I whispered.

"Sorry? Whats there to be sorry for?" Harry asked, tears in his eyes.

"I'm holding all of you back from having happy lives. I dragged all of you into this mess. My mess." I mumbled.

"Beth dont you get it? Our lives aren't happy without you. You didn't drag us into this mess, we chose to. You are like a sister to all of us beth. And to Liam? We have never seen him look at anyone the way he looks t you. None of us are complete without you." Zayn choked out.

I felt a tear slide down my cheek.

"Beth, the moment we met you, we knew you would mean something to us. Zayn is right, you are like not only my little sister but our sister. You are part of this family and none of us even want to think about loosing you. You are the closest thing I have to a sister Beth." Niall told me, his eyes bloodshot.

"The moment we met you, you became part of this family. This family isn't compete without you though. I think I speak for everyone in this room, I refuse to loose you to some psycho son of a bitch. Father or not. None of us would be the same if we lost you." Louis whispered.

These people were my family. Before they came into my life I was broken but they helped piece together the broken parts of my life. They found me before I could fall. I would fight for my family, even if I was taking the last breaths of my life. I would fight for my family.
