Assassin

My name is Scarlet Rose. You may say my life as a child didn't go as planned... ever since the age of 12, I have gotten into trouble. At the age of 13 I got arrested for hacking the C.I.A they then took me in and trained me as one of their youngest agents, at the age of 14 I managed to escape the C.I.A and the F.B.I and had gone rogue, and trained as an elite assassin. I am 18 years old and I am one of the top assassins in Europe.

Both my parents are dead. The only family I had left was my sister Luce until I found her brutally beaten in an alleyway and five assassins "The Bloods" escaping in a black van. Ever since her death I have had one thing on my mind. To kill "The Bloods". The only thing standing in my way is them.

That is until I fall in love with one of them?

Author's Chapter Notes:

BEFORE YOU GUYS START READING!

Alright so this chapter was inspired by the song The Lonely - By Christina Perri

Because of this I set it up so that the YouTube video should be on the side, as soon as you do that read Scarlet's POV slowly. you should figure out why I chose this song to match her POV.

Chapter 11

I was in complete and total darkness. I couldn’t see, I couldn’t move, and I couldn’t breathe.

I was trapped.

There’s no way I could be dead? I mean I don’t feel dead? I needed to get out of this place. I was alone.

There had to be a way out.

I thought of how I even ended up in the situation in the first place.

My answer was Harry.

Why did I drink the champagne? Part of me just wanted to beat Harry to it, but deep down my thoughts told me otherwise. My subconscious had told me to drink. Take the blow for Harry so he wouldn’t get hurt.

To save him.

I honestly could wrap my head around it. I had once again allowed my feelings to get in the way of what I wanted. That’s when one question popped into my mind. What was it that I truly wanted now?

 

*I'm a ghost of a girl that I want to be most

I'm the shell of a girl that I used to know well*

 

I feel like the part of me that wanted revenge, had suddenly disappeared, and I was left with the shell of a girl who was happy before they showed up. I was now stuck in this shell; in this mind set I had pushed out so many years ago… I was left to cope with these old but new rushes of emotions. It felt like my brain was going to explode. I couldn’t take having my heart pull one way but my head pull another. I was simply a ghost in a body painfully reminding me of the past. Reminding me of the happiness I used to feel.

But I couldn’t think like this now. I needed to accept what fate had thrown at me, and fight through it. To stay strong like Luce had told me on the day she had died. I was going to find a way out. I needed to find a way out.

That’s when I saw a faint light in the distance. I wanted a way out and I prayed this was it. I fought as hard as I could to take back control of my body; I was almost at the light. I was determined to get back to the only family I had left. I pushed my way through and walked into the light.

That’s when I heard a sound. It was so quiet I thought I was dreaming, but then I heard it again. I gave it my all and the white light blinded me, until everything faded to black.

Beep… Beep… Beep...Beep.Beep.Beep.Beep

What the hell was that stupid noise? Then it hit me. I was in a hospital.

I however was still not awake. I thought I could hear the sound of voices, but I’m sure I was going crazy… that is until I heard my name. One voice stood out above the rest.

“Scarlet.” It sounded like they had dragged out my name when they said it. I wanted to call out, scream, say anything, but I couldn’t, I was trapped.

“Scarlet.” The voice became clearer this time, it was deep and raspy. It almost sounded tired and worn out.

I couldn’t take it anymore I needed to get up! Scarlet you need to get up! But no matter how much I willed my mind it wouldn’t do it.

“Scarlet, I’m so sorry for everything.” The voice became softer but filled with guilt. I knew the voice, yet I couldn’t put a name to it.

I tried again, but still no luck came to me. It was like my whole body was frozen in this state, not moving, not willing. I hated it. I was about to try again when something hit my face. At first I didn’t feel it but then it started burning and moved down my face until it disappeared… was it a tear? Did I actually feel something? That’s when I could feel my body again, but I still wasn’t in control. A jolt of electricity suddenly hit my lips. I had no idea what was happening but I used this new energy to my advantage. That was all I needed and began to try one last time to finally wake up.

My mind jolted awake, I was no longer in my dreams, and I was brought back to reality. I took a gasping breath and slowly my eyes fluttered open.

I opened my eyes to see someone pressed against my forehead, their hand cupping my cheek, and tears flowing from their closed eyes. They opened their eyes and looked into mine.

I was met with a pair of beautiful burning green eyes.

In that moment, I had never been so happy to see his all too familiar eyes staring back at me.

 

(Harry POV)

I ran out of the training room, so fast it didn’t give time for the lads to stop me. I needed to clear my head. I was so stupid! I shouldn’t have kissed her. But I couldn’t help it… and that spark? Did she feel it too? Why was she so hurt? All these things ran through my mind, and I finally came across a empty alleyway. I walked over and sat down. I don’t understand why she had this effect on me! It was driving me nuts!

I sighed and leaned my head up against the wall and looked up at the darkening sky. I couldn’t just walk away. I needed to fix this. I needed to know if she felt it too. I closed my eyes and lowered my head back down. But every time I closed my eyes, scarlet’s face had appeared after I had asked her what was wrong. She was so cold. Was she upset because I was an Assassin and she was C.I.A? I finally just tuned it out. The one thing I wanted most was to earn scarlet’s forgiveness back, even it meant I would end up broken. No harry, I thought. You can do this. You can’t let her go, she is the one you can’t let get away.

With that I took off running back to the house. I quickly showered and got changed and waited downstairs with the rest of the lads for the girls to come down.

Louis leaned over.

“Were the hell did you go? Are you ok?” He asked. I sighed before responding. “Yes, I’m ok, I just think I cheated in training with Scarlet, and now she is upset with me.”

“Don’t worry Haz; I don’t think she hates you. Look give me her to me for dinner so her mood is up and when I go to excuse myself from the dinner that’s when you strike, ok?”

“Honestly Lou, you’re the best.”

“I know, oh here they come!”

All three girls descended the stair case. My eyes immediately found Scarlet’s and my jaw dropped. I had never seen anything more beautiful in my entire life. I didn’t move. I didn’t know what to do. I was frozen. Unprepared. I was shaken from my thoughts when Lou took a step forward and helped Scarlet down the stairs.

My eyes never left Scarlet’s as we climbed into the car. She looked stunning, her curls were perfect, her make-up wasn’t heavy or clumped on; her dress… well her dress was also beautiful. It fit her in all the right places. Never in all my life, had I wanted someone so bad it hurt.

We all met Danielle at the doors of the restaurant, and walked in to be greeted with a Hostess.

““Hello, any reservation for this evening?”

I stepped forward from the back and answered the girl.

“Um, yes for 9, under Styles.” I said emotionless.

“Yes here you are right this way please.”

She escorted us to a very long table, we all were about to take our seats when Louis, Niall, Zayn, and Liam helped the girls into their seats.

“Hello I’m Katherine, I will be your server this evening, can I get you all started off with some drinks?”

“Water for me.” Scarlet said.

Danielle, Sarah, and Bri also ordered water’s while the rest of us ordered champagne for the entire table.

“I will be back with your food soon.” Katherine said, before she left.

Everyone seemed to be having small conversation with one another, while I kept my focus on Scarlet. I noticed she was fiddling with her rings.

After dinner Louis winked at me before excusing himself to walk Liam and Danielle to the door. This was my chance. It was no or never.

“You look gorgeous tonight Scar, I never got to tell you back at the house, but I wanted you to hear it.” I said softly. She looked at me and replied. “Thank you.”

I took that as my sign of forgiveness and smiled at her. I was actually happy to be at this dinner now. Louis and Liam came back just in time as the waiter returned with new glasses filled with champagne, as he each handed us a glass. I threw mine back no problem and got up to go steal Scarlet’s before she had the chance. I grabbed the glass and brought it to my mouth.

“NO HARRY!” She yelled. The glass was ripped from my hand and she threw it back and looked at me smugly. I started smiling at her when her face started to change.

“NOBODY DRINK THE CHAMPAGNE” Louis screamed. I looked wide-eyed at Scarlet as she went pale.

Everybody started to panic and yell out to scarlet at once. I ran over and caught her in my chest before she had any time to hit the floor. I scooped her up and turned to the rest of the group.

“Liam, Zayn! Find that guy I want him dead! Louis we need to get Scarlet to a hospital before it gets into her blood stream!”

I looked down at scarlet to see she had lost consciousness. We ran outside with Bri and Sarah and drove to the hospital. Louis phone started to buzz, and he answered.

“Hello Zayn? Did you find him?-Here I’m putting you on speaker.”

“He- Haz Niall and I searched the place he had a back exit with a van. It was a set up Haz, they knew she was going to be here. He escaped Harry. I’m sorry.”

“It’s fine, just come to the Hospital as fast as you can alright?”

“Are the girls safe? There still not inside the restaurant are they?” Niall asked concerned.

“No Ni, there fine, they are with us. Just hurry up” Louis said.

“Alright talk to you soon.” Louis ended the call. He got out of the car, and I rushed her in the ER.

“Someone help! She’s been poisoned! She needs help or she will die!” I yelled as we entered.

Immediately she was ripped from my hands and rushed in to OR. We sat in the waiting room for what seemed like hours. Bri and Sarah had ended up crying, but luckily Niall and Zayn were there to calm them down. Liam had left to call Danielle to update her. Finally Louis and I were stuck staring at the doors she had been taken behind. Suddenly a doctor came and cleared her throat.

“Um are you the man who rushed a young woman in here tonight?”

“Um yes, but we were all with her.” I said cautiously.

She glanced over at our large group, before motioning all of us to stand and follow her. Two things ran through my mind. Either scarlet was dead, or she was alive and recovering. I prayed it was the second option.

She walked us into a large hospital room. We all gathered in the room, and suddenly I looked up at the lifeless girl, lying on the hospital bed. Bri and Sarah rushed on either side of her and grabbed on her hands and lost it. They began sobbing and crying out Scar’s name. I couldn’t take this pain. It was too much. I needed out, I was about to turn when Louis caught my arm, and slid his arm around my shoulder. He was the strong one out of the group. I kept my composure and gave him a nod, before he slowly released me, but stayed close. Zayn and Niall had gone and pulled Sarah and Bri into the chests and tried once again to calm them down.

I couldn’t take this anymore, I turned to the doctor.

“Is she going to be ok?” I asked with pleading eyes.

“We got the poison out, however we tested the chemical and it was a mix of Cyanide poison and Amatoxin poison. Thankfully she didn’t have it in her blood system when she came here. However with that being said because she injected the Cyanide she had gone into cardiac arrest on the table and started to seize due to the side effects of this poison. She was then revived. Because she also injected Amatoxin she could have had kidney failure and liver failure, but we quickly pumped out the fluid before it had time to cause any damage. The bad part about this poison is, once injected you then fall into a coma from which most survivors never wake up from. From the information you told us, we can’t find any info of her in the data base. We will keep her on the machines for now but one of you will have to let us know who is the person is going to be to make the decision to pull the plug, if she does not wake up in 2 weeks time. Take all the time you need. Page me if you need anything.”

We all stood there in silence as she walked out. I was just so stunned. The girl had felt for was lying helpless, with no one to help her. To protect her. I wanted so badly to be that one person. The girls broke down again and Liam left to take another phone call from Danielle. He had tears swelling up in his eyes as he left. Louis was letting tears fall freely from his face. Niall and Zayn whipped their own tears and the held Brianna and Sarah closer to them. I hadn’t noticed until now the tears that fell from my face. Everyone was a mess. My emotions had never been more overcoming in my entire life. I walked over and sat near her bed and brushed the small curls that fell from her face.

I didn’t bother leaving this spot for the rest of the night.

All of us sat there for the next week taking turns sitting with her and holding her hand. Hoping she would wake up. We had left the decision to Bri and Sarah to pull the plug, once the two weeks were up since they were the only family as far as any of us knew. Louis had tried everything in his power to find out the man who had poisoned her, constantly reviewing the security camera’s and still trying to find out if Scarlet had any family, we thought we could try and contact. We came up short every time.

It was day 13.

One day until I would lose her.

One day until everyone would lose a friend.

One day until I had to say goodbye.

I was in her room alone, while everyone went to go eat. I however refused. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat. They one thing I wanted was for her to wake up. I got up from my chair walked over to her bed and bent down. I needed her to walk up. I refused to let go of her.

“Scarlet.” I whispered.

“Scarlet.” I said more audible this time.

I needed her to at least no how sorry I was for everything I had caused her. I should have been the one in her position. I should have stopped her.

“Scarlet, I’m so sorry- f-for everything” I said softy.

I then cupped the side of her face in my hand and began to the tears fall from my face as I touched foreheads with her. I needed to kiss her one last time, before she would leave me for good. I slowly lowered my lips onto hers and felt a jolt of electricity run through me. That never got old. I continued to cry. I would never see those green eyes, or her beautiful smile ever again.

I can’t do it. I just can’t let her go. I opened up my red swollen eyes, and looked down at her one last time. I was met with a pair of beautiful burning green eyes.

In that moment, I had never been so happy to see her all too familiar eyes staring back at me.
