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?

Chapter 12

He didn’t blink.

He didn’t move.

I couldn’t wait anymore. I needed to know I wasn’t dreaming. I needed to know I was alive. I was about to speak but more tears streamed down his face when he spoke.

“P-Please tell me I’m not d-dreaming, I- I don’t think I can handle myself, if I’m dreaming.”

I didn’t know what to say. He words surprised me. But he needed to know I wasn’t going anywhere. At least not now.

“Love you can blink, it ok.” I barley said.

“I’m afraid if I do, you won’t be here again. I’m scared Scarlet.” He whispered as his voice shook.

“Harry it’s alright, I’m here. I promise I will be here when you open your eyes again.” I said reassuringly.

He blinked a couple of times and I whipped away his tears that slowly came to a stop.

He looked back at me, and I managed to give him a faint smile. He grabbed me and pulled me into a protective hug. It was like time stopped and Harry and I were stuck in a daydream.

He pulled back, and looked into my eyes once again. Checking to make sure I was still here. He hesitantly kissed my forehead and looked back at me. I was too weak to push him away. For once I just wanted to be with Harry. I leaned in and buried my head in his chest.

“I thought I- we thought we had lost you.” He mumbled.

“You can’t get rid of me that easily.” I faintly smiled, as his chuckled.

“I am so sorry Scarlet. For everything, you shouldn’t have drunk the champagne. I should be the one on my death bed not you.” He brought me closer, and rubs small circles on my back.

I had to remember I couldn’t let him. No matter how much it hurt, I couldn’t let Harry close to me. No matter how badly I just wanted to give up and let him in. I pulled back from him.

“I told you this once and I’m going to tell you again. Your mine to kill. So I don’t care if I have to get bloody poisoned as long as I’m the one to kill you. I’ll do whatever it has to take.” I said coldly.

I slowly looked away .I could see the pain on his face as I looked down at my hands. He slowly released me, and back away. I looked back up at him, but he turned away, and hit the button that pages the nurses.

“I guess I should go tell everyone that you’re awake. I’ll be back later” his words stung as he left the room, slamming the door shut. I lie back on my bed, and let the tears fall from my face. Why? Why did I have to have these emotions for him? I hated it.

I hated these feelings.

I hated the effect he had on me.

I hated that I had to try and keep pushing him away.

I hated that I had continued to hurt him.

I quickly whipped the tears from my face, as Louis burst into the room and jumped on top of me. Hugging me and checking me over and kissing my forehead, while Bri and Sarah ran into the room next along with Zayn, Niall, and Liam.

“You’re Alive!” Louis screamed.

“Omg- How did you? We thought-were so happy your alright!” Bri was crying as she came over and hugged me.

“You are so-! We were going to have to pull the plug if you didn’t wake up tomorrow! Bloody Hell Scarlet! Why the hell didn’t you wake up sooner! God don’t do that again! You scared the crap out of me and Bri, Scarlet!” Sarah was also crying as she hugged me tight.

“Wait pull the plug? What- it’s only been a day?” I asked.

They all starred at me wide-eyed. Jesus how many days had I been out?

“Scarlet, it’s been… it’s been 13 days… tomorrow was day 14, if you didn’t wake up tomorrow morning… Bri and Sarah… well they had to make the call to pull the plug. The doctors told us if you didn’t wake up in 2 weeks, they had someone give the decision to pull the plug. Lou tried to find out if you had any family, but came up short… So we thought the closest people to you would be Bri and Sarah.” Liam spoke.

Louis hadn’t been able to find anything, because my family was dead. Every one of my family members died. They were right the only family I had left was Sarah and Bri.

“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you… I tried so hard, to get out of this never ending darkness. I didn’t realize I was on a countdown. I just knew I needed to get out. I’m so sorry.” I grabbed both the girls in a big hugged and let them cry.

Louis got off of me and stood next to Liam and whispered something. Louis frowned and turned back at me. I gave him a quick nod before he left the room. The nurses came in and were excited that I was awake. The doctor assigned to my case, came in later that day.

“I’m so happy your awake Scarlet. I’m glad you were able to fight your way back. You look like you have made a full recovery, but I’m going to keep you here one more night before I will discharge you.” I smiled and thanked her before she left.

That night everyone had left to get some sleep. I was just about to sleep when I heard a faint knock at the door.

“Come in.”

Louis walked in holding a book in his hand. He hopped up on my bed and I curled up next to him.

“Since you love books, I thought I could read to you… I had been doing it for the days I was sitting with you in your room. “He faintly smiled as I looked up into his blue eyes.

“Really? You did that for me?”

“Yes Scar, I was hoping you would wake up, and I was desperate so I was trying pretty much anything.” He chuckled and looked down at me.

“Thank you.”

His smile grew and he kissed the top of my head before opening the book.  “I hope you like ‘The tale of the Two Cities’ it’s my favorite book.” I looked at him wide-eyed. He furrowed his brow at me, but I simply let out a laugh.

“I don’t know how you knew, but this is my favorite book." I smirked, curling closer to his warm body.

“Brilliant.” he smiled and started reading.

We sat there for hours as I closed my eyes, listening to his voice. He finished the book and climbed under the covers with me. He pulled me into his chest and held me tight.

“I’m really happy your alive Scarlet, I don’t know what Haz would have done... if you... If you left.” He mumbled.

“Well I’m here now. I’ll try and keep myself out of trouble for now.” Avoiding Louis statement completely.

“You can’t avoid him forever Scarlet, I don’t want both of you ending up hurt or worse… dead.”

I mumbled to myself, so that Louis wouldn’t hear.

“I can’t make that promise Lou, besides… I’m already dead.”

I had been dead ever since Luce had died. She was my lifeline and she had been ripped away. Now the one person who had ripped her away was slowly bringing me back to life?

One question popped into my mind.

Did I want to be brought back to life? Or was I better off dead?

I awoke the next morning with Louis nowhere to be seen. He left his book on the side table with a small not stuck in it. I grabbed the note and read it.

Dear Scarlet,

Sorry to leave you this morning. I was going to wake you up, but you looked really tired so I left you to sleep. I going home to go get some of your clothes so you can change, and then I will sign the discharge sheet so we can go back home. Niall and Zayn drove the girls back to their flats, and we told them you would call them later. Stay safe please!

Xx. L

I sat up in bed, and Lou came into the door quickly. He had a panic look on his face.

“Scarlet get up now! Go get changed quickly.” He said.

“Louis what wrong?”

“There are men down the hall asking for your room number. Get up now and get changed. Niall and I are the only ones here. Liam is outside with the car. We need to get you out now!” He said a bit more hastily now.

I grabbed the clothing and quickly got changed. Louis had brought me dark faded skinny jeans, a black tank top, a beige jumper, a pair of flats, my dark red beanie, and a pair of sunglasses.

I walked out of bathroom, while Louis was pacing back in forth.

“You look great, alright ready to go? We just have to walk quickly once were in the parking lot, were out in the open, so we need to hurry, yeah?”

I smirked “Let’s go.”

He grabbed my hand and pulled me out of the hospital room. He signed all the papers before he led my quickly down the hallway. We turned the corner to see the two men walking our way. They spotted us and I quickly pulled Louis in another direction. We sped walk down the hall as the two men tried to catch up, only having to run into a packed hallway full of people. We then ran into Niall. Niall had a gun in his hand and placed a hand on my back as we ran out into the parking lot.

“Damn it! Where is Liam?” Niall said.

That’s when we heard shots fired. I quickly pulled the guys down and weaved us in and out of cars. I looked through the window of a car and saw the two men searching in between cars. They split up and one was coming out way. I quickly grabbed the hand Niall was holding with the gun, took off my beanie and wrapped it around the gun; Niall still had hold of the gun as I brought it up and pointed it at the man coming to check our row. I aimed the gun and Niall shot.

Perfect shot to the forehead.

“What the bloody hell was that? I could have shot him myself!”

“And where would we be? The police would be all over this place in a matter of minutes I just silenced your stupid gun, so you’re welcome!” I sneered in a low voice.

Louis quickly covered my mouth as the next one ran towards us. I pulled the gun out of Niall’s hand and shot him in the jugular. He was instantly on his knee’s trying to gasp for air.

I walked over to him and punched him in the gut. I brought my hand around his neck and squeezed.

“Who do you work for!” I yelled.

He only spit to the side, looked at me and glared

“You’re dead girly.” This time Louis hit him in the gut, and Niall pulled his hair to look me up into my eyes.

“I said who do you bloody work for! Answer me or I will shoot you again.” I didn’t wait for him to respond. I just shot him in the knee. He tried to scream in pain but only blood came up.

“Tell us who is after me! Who sent you!” I yelled.

“He won’t s-stop, u-until y-y-our d-ead!” He coughed up more blood and closed his eyes.

The boys released him. He lied next to the other man dead. I took my beanie from Niall’s gun and handed it back to him. I put my beanie back on and put on my shades and walked away. I saw Liam waiting in the car. I opened the door and stepped in.

Niall and Louis quickly came in behind me. Niall and Louis then told Liam about what had just happened and we all drove home in silence. I was so angry. I wanted whoever was trying to kill me dead! And that’s was a promise.

Once home, I quickly got out of the car. Louis came up to me.

“Look Scar, we will find him. Might I add you were amazing back there.” He smirked.

All my anger suddenly disappeared and I started to laugh. He guided me in the house and walked into the common room. I was about to walk in when Niall grabbed my wrist.

“Since you had a training session with Haz, I was wondering if you wanted to come down with me to the shoot range and practice.” Niall asked.

“Um, sure. Do I have to get changed?”

“No just guns, nothing fancy love, meet me down there in ten?”

“Sure Niall.” He smiled and I walked into the common room to hear Louis telling the story to Zayn and Harry. Harry looked up from Louis and then to me. His face quickly turned from normal to pain as soon as he saw me. I looked at him and quickly walked out of the room. I couldn’t keep doing this. It needed to stop. I walked out of the room and into the kitchen. Someone grabbed my hand and spun me around.

“Scarlet I’m sorry for walking out. I’m also sorry for not being there to protect you from those guys.” He stuttered.

“You know what Harry? I’M FINE! Perfectly fine! I can handle myself and I don’t need you out of all people bloody protecting me! So stop apologizing, just stop. Leave me alone and let me be.” I sneered.

I was walking out of the room when he quickly grabbed my wrist and spun me back again. I quickly blinked back the tears and tried to hide my facial expression from him. He saw through it and his face filled with concern.

“Scarlet… Please can we talk?”

“NO! I can’t do this Harry. Not now. I don’t want to bloody talk to you. I have to be at the target range. Niall is waiting for me. So goodbye Harry.” I spun on my heels and ran out of the room.

I burst into the training room, and walked through the doors to see Niall choosing from the gun selection.

“Hey.” He mumbled, still focused on the guns.

“Hi.” I said emotionless.

I grabbed my selection of guns, and we walked over and put on the ear muffs and started to load our hand guns. I let all my bullets fly on the target ahead hitting the bulls-eye. The heart. Every time, I didn’t even make the whole bigger every bullet I shot when through the first hole I had created. I was out of ammo and reloaded.

“Impressive.” Niall said through the mic on the earmuffs.

I laughed and looked at his target he had shot through the ten other targets while I focused on only one.

“Not bad for you.” I smirked.
“Hey Scarlet can I ask you something?” He voice filled with concern. If he was going to bring up Harry I was about to shoot him and get it over with. “It depends on what you would like to ask babe”

“Well... Well it's-… it’s Brianna...” He said hesitantly.

It caught me off guard and I shot a new hole on my target.

“Um what about her Niall?”

“Well I was just wondering if she has said anything about me lately.”

“Um not that I know of… I’ve been unconscious for 13 days, so I have no idea… why? What did you do?”

“Nothing I swear! It’s just um- well I think I may like her.. And I was going to take her out to dinner” I couldn’t believe it…he actually liked Brianna, and from the tone in his voice he sounded nervous.   

“Um Niall, are you asking me for permission to ask her out to dinner?” I let out a small laugh and he chuckled.

“Well no, but do you think she would say yes?”

I had really thought about it. Harry said he wouldn’t hurt them as long as I said at the house. I knew Bri liked him, I could tell in her eyes. If Niall wanted to ask her out on a date, I wouldn’t interfere. It was Bri’s life not mine. I would murder him though if he ever did anything to her.

“I think she would say yes, But Niall...”


“If you bloody break her heart or hurt her in any way. I will kill you.” I said coldly.

“I promise I won’t… I haven’t felt this way about a girl in a long time… I will always protect her from any danger. “He said calmly.

“Alright then you have my blessings for now.” I took one final shot, and Niall and I put the guns back on the wall took off our earmuffs, and he smiled at me before he left to go call Bri.

I walked out of the room, only to run into Liam. He smiled at me and dragged me into the kitchen and made me a cup of tea.

“Thanks.” He nodded in response.

“So since Harry and Niall got a training session with you does this mean I get one too?”

“What did you have in mind?”

“Um... How about weapons training? Or go for a run?”

“Sounds good Liam, tomorrow ok?”

“Yes, that’s sounds perfect.”

I smiled before walking out of the kitchen. I was almost at the stairs when I bumped into Harry. I looked up to meet his eyes. However they weren’t a bright green, they were dark, filled with pain and anger. I had done this I thought.

“Excuse me.” He muffled before turning to go walk away. I quickly grabbed his hand without thinking.

“Harry I-“


“I- I- never mind… I’m sorry for running into you. “ I quickly turned away running up the stairs. I ran into my bedroom and locked the door. I ran and hid my face in a pillow letting the tears fall from my face. I was filled with one thing.


I couldn’t tell him I was sorry.

Sorry for hurting him.

Sorry for everything.

But something had stopped me. When I looked into his eyes, I felt his pain, his anger, and his feelings. I thought about the words that wouldn’t come to me when I tried to speak to Harry. What was I going to say to him? Why hadn’t I say it? I then realized those dreaded words that I was going to say to him.

I would never tell him. I would never express how I really felt about him. I needed to get my mind straight. I needed to do what I came here for.

My mind was made up.

No matter how much it killed me. I would set out to do what I wanted so badly when Luce had died. I was being brought back to life by a boy I was supposed to hate. I didn’t want this. I wanted to be left for dead. The only way to do that was to kill the one thing I wanted most in the world even if it destroyed me.

The one thing I wanted most in the world was Harry’s Heart.
