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?

14. Chapter 14

Chapter 14

I awoke next morning with burning eyes. Bri and Sarah left a note for me saying they were going to get food from the kitchen and come right back. I slowly got out of bed and walked into the ensuite. I flicked on the light, and saw a broken girl staring back at me. My eyes were blood shot, my hair was a mess, and I had bags under my eyes, and didn’t at all look like my normal self. I hopped into the shower and let myself stand there for an hour. I didn’t move. I just stood under the water. I finally pulled myself out and got changed and did my hair and make-up.

I rummaged through my things and found my mom’s old jumper. I pulled on a pair of skinny jeans, grabbed my Steve Madden boots, my Burberry coat, my marc Jacobs watch my dad got me as a Christmas present, sunglasses, and my pink studied beanie and I was all set.

I needed to be alone for awhile and head to my flat. I made it down the stairs and heard commotion coming from the common room. I didn’t want to get involved, but I had a feeling the topic they were arguing about was me. I simply walked past the common room, without acknowledging anyone. The voices suddenly stopped as I walked by.

I knew they had seen me. Someone caught me by the wrist and I turned to see Bri.

I sighed and looked up into her eyes.

“Babe where are you going?”

“I-I need to get out, I think I’m gonna go to my flat for a bit… I just need some space.”

“Alright I’ll see you later” she pulled me into a hug and handed me the keys to my bike.

I pulled on my sunglasses, and got on my bike. I didn’t bother putting on a helmet; I didn’t care about the risks anymore. I had nothing to lose anyways.

I sped down the roads, running red lights, and made it to my house in 5 minutes. I was walking up the stairs and when I reached the top step I grabbed my keys and made my way to the front door to unlock it. Only to see it was already unlocked.

I slowly pushed the door open, and carefully stepped in. I looked around to see my flat torn apart. Lamps broken, sofa was torn apart, my closet ransacked, everything had been destroyed. I ran into my closet and pushed the clothing aside and saw they hadn’t broken into my weapons room. Although there was multiple bullet holes in the door. Thank god I pull in steel doors. I unlocked it and sure enough everything was still in place. I ran back out into my normal closet and ran to my safe, where I kept all of Luce’s and my parent’s thing I had left.

They had broken in and broke the picture frames of my family and me, torn up the entire letter’s Luce had written to me while I was away in training. I reached my hand in and slowly grabbed out the picture frame that belonged to Luce. My hand was shaking so much I accidentally dropped the picture frame. It shattered as it hit the floor. I bent down, my vision blurry with tears in my eyes; I cut my hands on the glass and picked up the picture frame.

Something softly hit the floor. I picked it up and turned it over leaving blood stained fingerprints. I was a small envelope I had never noticed.

I flipped it over to see my name in my mother’s cursive writing. I carefully opened the letter.



Scarlet,

Honey if you are reading this, it might mean that we are no longer in your life. We are so sorry we couldn’t protect you and your sister better. However we hope you and Luce are alright. You won’t be left without protection though. Your father and I have trusted Lucas and a very close group of friends of mine from my agency to keep an eye on you and watch over you and protect you from harm’s way. I’m so sorry baby for leaving you two like this. Stay safe and stay together. We love you and will always be watching over you. We are so proud of you and your sister.

Love you forever and always.


Mum & Dad

My mom was always so clever. She always had a backup plan. Always. However I guess the group of friend she trusted hadn’t really helped since Luce was dead… But I had no idea who they were, so I couldn’t make the accusation.

I folded the letter and packed up the rest of my clothes in a large duffel bag, along with most of my weapons. I walked back over to my safe and grabbed the two pictures I had left of my family, the one of Luce and me and the one of my parents wedding photo. I walked over to the kitchen to grab some extra money when I noticed a note on the counter.


Scarlet,

It’s a shame you weren’t here. I’m disappointed that 3 times I have tried to kill you, and your lovely friends have gotten in the way. I want to finish this. No more lifelines. There is a masquerade ball on October 21st. I hope to see you there Scarlet. Also if you decide not to attend you can guarantee the family you have left will die. You will be left alone in this world Scarlet. I will not stop until I get what I want. Oh and if you so happen to bring your lovely friends, I will have no choice but to make you suffer the consequences and make you kill anyone you have ever considered a friend. So I suggest you choose wisely. I have eyes everywhere, so I will be watching.

Take care Scarlet Xx.


I had no choice.

I had to go.

I had exactly four days.

I walked out of my flat with my bag and got on my bike and started driving back to the mansion, where I would finally have to face the people I had hurt the most.

(Bri’s POV)

Sarah and I slowly got out of bed around 9am and left Scarlet a note telling her we just left to go get food. I was making tea in the kitchen when someone grabbed me from behind and holding me tight. I breathed in his strong cologne and instantly knew it was Niall. I turned around in his arms and broke down.

“I am so sorry for yesterday. I-I just that was the one day in the year when Sarah and I lose it and drop everything for Scarlet, I’m sorry for everything-“

I never got to finished my sentence as Niall crashed his lips against mine and I forgot about the world in that moment. My mind brought me back to reality and who Niall really was. He was a murderer. He had killed my best friend’s sister. One of his parents had been a part of killing her parents.

“I’m sorry… Look Niall…I don’t think we should do this. All of this news is just too much, I just- it’s not right. We can’t do this. There even shouldn’t be a ‘we’.”

“Bri do you love me?” He asked.

He caught me off guard. I mean was I falling in love with this boy? Or had I already fallen? “I- I mean- “ He brought his finger up to my lips to stop me.

“I love you. I can’t see my life any other way without you.” He said staring straight into my eyes.

“Niall I… I don’t know what to say.”

“Tell me what you feel, tell me the truth.” He looked into my eye searching for an answer. We both knew the answer; he just wanted me to say it.

“Yes.” That one simple word brought the biggest smile to my face, he lifted me up and spun me around I wrapped my legs around his hips and he kissed me softly.

“Then I need you and Sarah to hear us out, we all need to speak with you.” He said more concerning.

“Alright.”

I picked up mine and Sarah’s tea, while Niall still held me up. We walked into the common room to see Zayn holding Sarah close. They must have made up, because her eyes were swollen red from recently crying. Zayn kissed her on her forehead. Harry, Liam, and Louis entered in next. You could tell Harry had been crying by his blood shot eyes.

“I know you have every right to be angry at us, hell I hate myself. I just need you two to hear me- hear us out, you may not believe us but we need to tell you the truth.”

Niall sat down on the large chair and I spun myself around so I was sitting on one of the arm rests.

“Alright so we know you probably don’t believe us when I say we didn’t kill Scarlet’s sister.” Harry spoke.

Louis stepped in.

“I know it’s hard to believe but we had nothing to do with her death, we had received a call from our parent’s agency saying that Luce was being attacked. We dropped everything and tracked her down into the alleyway. There was a man there, he threw the knife he had used to stab Luce and threw it at Zayn.”

Zayn then stepped in.

“I caught the knife with my bare hand before he hit me. I threw the knife to the side, and we were about to fight him when he had a car waiting for him. We couldn’t chase after the car and leave Luce. So we went to Luce.”

Liam stepped in.

“She had multiple stab wounds in her… there was so much blood, honestly we weren’t trained or prepared enough to act in a situation like that. Lou tried to help her as much as he could while Harry had his hands pressed on her wounds to try and stop the bleeding. Luce told Harry there was no use… to just go so we wouldn’t get framed, that’s when we heard someone running up the alleyway on the opposite side and we weren’t suppose to be seen, so we stepped back into the shadows.”

Niall then grabbed my hand and spoke.

“We didn’t know about Scarlet at the time… our agency never told us about Scarlet… we… we had no idea Luce even had a sister. We didn’t know the girl in the alleyway was Scarlet… None of us knew. We had tried everything, to save Luce but she was already on her way when we had got there.”

Harry stepped forward again.

“Honestly no one knew she had any siblings we had never seen Scarlet in our life. We were new at this whole thing at the time. That’s why we left when Luce told us to. She knew Scarlet would find her. I didn’t know until now how quickly Scarlet had found her. All of us didn’t know what to do so we left her there. I was the worst mistake of our lives…”

I looked around the room to see everyone on edge and Harry had new tears coming down his face. I couldn’t take it though I had one question that bothered me so I lashed out without thinking.

“Then why didn’t you at least stay! Tell Scarlet the truth! You wouldn’t be in this bloody situation if you had just stayed! How could you just leave her there, with no explanation? No reason?!” I yelled.

Everyone suddenly go quiet as Scarlet walked past. I ran out of the room to see if she had been listening the entire time, but looked down at what she was wearing.

“Babe where are you going?” I asked.

“I-I need to get out, I think I’m gonna go to my flat for a bit… I just need some space.”

“Alright I’ll see you later.” I pulled her into a hug and handed the keys to her bike.

Once she left, I walked back into the common room to see everyone had tensed.

I still didn’t know whether to believe there story or to hate them more for coming up with another lie… My head was pounding and I couldn’t think straight, But Harry needed to know that even if this was the truth, everything he had done to her was certainly not ok. He had broken Scarlet’s life. She wouldn’t be like this if they had all just stayed.

“I can tell when someone lies, and you boys were telling the truth.” Sarah spoke up.

Niall then turned to me for an answer.

“I believe you as well-“ I turned directly to Harry.

“But you need to fix the damage you have caused… you have broken her enough… Harry I’ve seen the way she looks at you… She’s in love with you, and if you love her then you need to fix this. Fix her.”

I walked over and grabbed Niall’s hand and sat back down on the arm rest.

“I’ve tried, but everything I say only hurts her more… I can’t even look at her without her getting upset. She hates me… She won’t listen to hear what I have to say… You heard what she said to me in the driveway… Bri I love her... I love her so much that it hurts, I don’t want to cause her any more pain then I already have. She won’t ever talk to me ever again.”

Sarah then spoke up.

“Harry, look you need to tell her the truth. She hates you for what she thinks you did. It was a big misunderstanding. Harry if you love her, you have to tell her the truth, and you need to do it soon before you lose her for good.”

Harry turned back to me.

“Do you know when she will be back?”

I was about to answer him, when I stared in disbelief seeing Scarlet standing there tears flowing down my face. Harry saw my facial expression and spun around to see Scarlet crying.

“How long have you been standing there?”

“How long have you been in love with me Harry?” her voice filled with anger.

“I- I- Can we talk in private?”

“No! I want an answer Harry!” she yelled as more tears filled her eyes, It broke my heart to see her like this. If Harry had any chance left with Scarlet, he need to speak now or he was going to lose her for good.

“I’ve been in love with you ever since I looked into your green eyes.” He said hesitantly.

Scarlet let out a cry before covering her hand over her mouth and ran out of the room. Harry bolted after her. We were all left in the room shocked and filled with disbelief.

(End POV)

(Scarlet’s POV)

I entered the house to hear the same commotion coming from the common room. I slowly approached the corner and hid behind the corner.

That’s when I heard his voice.

“I’ve tried, but everything I say only hurts her more… I can’t even look at her without her getting upset. She hates me… She won’t listen to what I have to say… You heard what she said to me in the driveway… Bri I love her... I love her so much that it hurts, I don’t want to cause her any more pain then I already have. She won’t ever talk to me ever again.”

Sarah then spoke up.

“Harry, look you need to tell her the truth. She hates you for what she thinks you did. It was a big misunderstanding. Harry if you love her, you have to tell her the truth, and you need to do it soon before you lose her for good.”

The tears began to stream down my face, I couldn’t take it anymore I needed to know if he fell in love the same way I had, that day he had looked into my eyes and I looked into his.

“Do you know when she will be back?”

I stepped around the wall with more tears flowing down my face when I saw Bri. Her eyes grew wide as she looked in my direction. Harry quickly spun around and looked into my eyes.

“How long have you been standing there?”

“How long have you been in love with me Harry?” I sneered.

“I- I- Can we talk in private?”

“No! I want an answer Harry!” I yelled as more tears filled my eyes, I needed to know the truth and I needed to know or I was going to give up for good.

“I’ve been in love with you ever since I looked into your green eyes.” He said hesitantly.

I let out a cry before covering my hand over my mouth and ran out of the room. He had confirmed it. Harry bolted after me and caught me as I was half way up the stairs.
He spun me around and I fell into his chest. I couldn’t keep the truth in any longer Harry needed to know How I felt.

“Please Scarlet. Please don’t walk away from me anymore. I can’t do this; this pain inside me is to over powering. You need to know the truth, even if that means I lose you for good, you need to know-“ I didn’t let him finish.

“I love you. I have loved you from the moment I looked into your eyes. Harry you need to know that –“He cut me off.

“Scarlet I didn’t kill Luce… I know you think I did, but if you give me a chance, if you please just listen I can explain everything. It was a big misunderstanding please. Just let me explain.”

I looked into his eyes. I could always tell when someone was lying. But when I looked into Harry’s eyes, I knew he wasn’t lying. Then why did I still believe he had killed Luce? The stories, the evidence… everything didn’t make sense.

I looked into Harry’s eyes, the world seemed frozen. That’s when I crashed my lips against his wanting nothing but Harry. I forgot about everything. In that moment every problem we had seemed to disappear with that one kiss.

But I soon came back to reality and pulled away. This wasn’t like my mom and dad. My problems didn’t disappear they became worse. If you figured out anything in my life, things never ends up going as planned. My mind was spinning. That’s when my vision blurred and I fell back into Harry’s arms as the world around me turned off.
