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 15

Here we go again I thought. Darkness. Why? Why couldn’t it be on a beach, or in a forest, or I don’t know a field with a rainbow in the stupid background! I was so sick of this darkness. Being completely shut out from everyone… Actually now that I think about it, it wasn’t completely bad... I mean sure I was in pitch back darkness, I couldn’t see, but least I could move.

Who the hell was I kidding? I was alone and I wanted out. However I needed to be in here for a little longer… I needed to think. I needed answers. The only answer I could think of was…

I needed Harry.

Things just didn’t add up. The proof was in the pictures, so then why did I so badly want to believe Harry? I was getting the facts mixed up with my emotions. Although I wanted to tell him I was going to forgive him… I couldn’t pull myself to do it… Was I to believe the top assassin in the world, who was a trained liar or was I to believe the facts that were right in front of my face?

I screamed out in frustration. Why? Why were things so bloody complicated? On top of all that I never got to finish my sentence. Harry had cut me off… he thought he was forgiven when I was going to say

‘I love you. I have loved you from the moment I looked into your eyes. Harry you need to know that even though I just told you this, I can’t be with you. I can’t love you. The facts are in my bag Harry… not only was I there that night… but now I have solid evidence... I just can’t bring myself to forgive you. I want to, I want to jump into your arms and be with you, but I can’t. I won’t allow myself. I’m so sorry…’

I broke down into tears and hugged my knees tight to my chest. If I had told Harry that, I might as well rip both of our hearts out. So I did the thing I had regretted most in the world. Instead of telling him I made things more complicated and kissed him. I knew he felt the spark too. My lips still burned from where his kiss lingered. Wanting. Begging for more.

But I remembered the note. I couldn’t let myself get attached to Harry. To late Harry and I were somehow binded together by fate. No matter how many times I want to run, escape, there was always a force pulling me back to him. If I forgave Harry I wouldn’t be able to stop myself. If this person who was after me found out how I really felt about Harry and ever did something… I couldn’t even think about it. It made my heart fill with this pain, the more I thought about it.

I really wish I could create things in this place. I was killing to know the time, or even the date… I mean surely it couldn’t be out that long right? But then again I had been in this place for what seemed like hours when it was really 13 days.

I was about to trying and get out when I could see and outline of someone walking towards me. I guess I was afraid because this was my second time in this place and last time I recall there were no other people! I guess I felt my nerves, because that’s when it spoke.

“Do not be afraid.” The voice spoke.

“I’m not afraid, and it would be a lot easier if I knew what the heck is going on?”

The voice only laughed and stepped forward. I could see the outline more clearly now. It was a female.

It looked almost like my mum? She had the same height to her, but my mom had longer legs and a shorter torso… as the woman came closer, she was the opposite. However I could still see nothing but her outline. Her voice however was young, still filled with youth. Was this girl dead or alive like me?

“Well I should start off by telling you that no I am not your mum, but thank -you for comparing me to her. She is really beautiful. I however –“I cut her off.

“You know my mom?”

She sighed before continuing.

“Um… Listen Scarlet, I’m going to try and tell you this easy, look I’ve met your entire family recently… actually, um they didn’t want to scare you, so they thought I would be the best mutual person to explain everything.”

“My entire family? You mean Luce? And my Dad?”

“Yes listen, I really don’t have much time, so I need to start explaining-“

“My family is dead… they died over 2 years ago... so that’s impossible-“ That’s when I caught on. This girl wasn’t alive.

“Look babe don’t get upset alright? There in a really good place… we all are actually… Look they all decided to send me to you since I’m a mutual person. As I was saying before you cut me off that my name is Gemma. You’re in a place called Shadow land, or the correct term the In-between. All of us have been working really hard to try and contact you; finally we were able to share a connecting link so I could get through to you. So now that you know this, there are some other things we need to-“I cut her off again.

“A connecting link? I have no idea who you are? What common link do we share, if you didn’t even know my parents in this life?” She sighed again. “A connecting link is something that allows me to link onto you for a brief moment in time, and visit you in this place before I have to go back ‘up’ as you call it.”

“So wait. I’m sorry I’m still confused, what is the connecting link we shared?”

“Harry. He’s my brother… I love him very much, and as soon as we saw you arrive and think of him, that’s how I was able to connect and come here to speak with you.”

Holy shit. Harry had a sister. Harry’s dead sister was now standing in front of me.

“Yes I’m standing in front of you! I can hear your thoughts you know.” She said sarcastically and then stifled a laugh.


“It’s alright; look I have to tell you that you have a choice… it’s not going to be easy But fate has given you the option to choose your destiny. You and harry share the same destiny, it is your decision if you are willing to allow fate to bring you together or set you both free. I warn you though the consequences are very high and could cost a life in the process. Scarlet destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved if you are willing to take the risks and hold nothing back.”

“Great so I have yet another thing to worry about in my life!” I yelled in frustration.

“Scarlet, don’t look at this one sided, you have allow yourself to feel. You have to let yourself, let your mind explore all possible options, even if that means allowing Harry in. “

She looked down at her outline; I noticed it wasn’t glowing as bright, like when she first came.

“Crap the link is breaking, that means you’re either waking up or someone is waking you up… Listen to me; you need to let yourself be free for once. Open up to him, I promise you won’t regret it. Scarlet your parents told me to tell you one last thing. They said to listen with your heart, follow with your body, and focus on the truth in your mind, that night in the alleyway is in the past. Let the past help you find the truth. Scarlet there is a fight ahead, one of you will rise and one of you will fall!

She was slowly fading away but I needed to know if she meant Harry and me. I had to figure out if Harry was going to be my saving grace or if that boy was going to be the death of me.

“No Gemma!! Do you mean Harry and I?! What do you mean?! I’m so confused please don’t go! Don’t leave me here alone! Come back!” and before I knew it she was gone, and a light appeared before I became blinded with light and slowly brought back to reality.

(Harry POV)

I sprinted out of the room after her. She was fast but I had longer legs and I caught her wrist as I raced up the stairs to her.

I spun her around so I could see her eyes. She fell into my chest and regained her balance. I couldn’t take it anymore she needed to know, it was now or never.

“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-“She didn’t let me finish.

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

I was so focused with what I had said I hadn’t really heard what she had just confessed to me.

“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.”

She looked back into my eyes. I looked at her with pleading eyes; all I needed was time to explain. She furrowed her brows but never looked away. I swear time froze the longer we held our gaze. I couldn’t take it anymore, the urge inside was killing me.

That’s when she crashed her lips against mine. I forgot about everything. I wanted nothing more than Scarlet. In that moment every problem we had seemed to disappear with that one kiss.

But as soon as I thought this, she pulled away. She was searching my eyes for answers; she then started to sway on the steps, and became ghostly white. Her eyes lost focus and she crashed against me I caught her before she closed her eyes. I was calling out to her. Shaking her shoulders, I quickly picked her up bridal style and ran down the stairs I called out to Louis and ran her back into the common room. I laid her down on the sofa, as Bri and Niall booked it to the kitchen to get ice packs.

“Louis she... we were sort of… kind of arguing on the steps, then she kissed me… then she lost her balance and she fainted! Is she okay!? Please tell me, we don’t have to take her to the hospital? Oh my god this is all my bloody fault! I should have-“

“HARRY FOR GOD SAKES MAN SHE FAINTED! She is not dying! Her body forced her to pass out, most likely to stress, Jesus man get a bloody hold of yourself! She will wake up when her body has relaxed, so now we wait.” Louis huffed and sat down on the floor, as Bri and Niall came rushing back into the room, Bri laid a wrapped Ice pack on her forehead to cool her down.

“I swear you two never catch a break.” Zayn muffled and Sarah smacked him playfully.

“Excuse us for a moment.” Sarah said before grabbing on to Zayn’s shirt aggressively and dragged him out of the room with such force, the rest of us were shocked at how strong she was.

Niall and Bri then left to go get a well needed drink of whiskey. Liam left to go update Danielle on everything. While Louis and I stayed in the common room, I walked over to Scarlet grabbing a pillow off the chair on my way, and putting it underneath her to support her head.

It had only been ten minutes until, Scarlet started to move. Louis and I quickly jumped off from the floor and knelt down to get a better look at Scarlet. It almost looked as if she was having a nightmare.

No scratch that she was calling out for someone?

“Scarlet?” I whispered

“..Don’t…Don’t go… Don’t leave me here alone... Come back!” She muffled.

I was about to shake her when Lou, held his arm in front of me blocking me from touching her.

“Scarlet love, wake up. Hun wake up, it’s only a dream you need to wake up.” Louis said more audible.

She gasped for air and quickly sat up. She looked around wide-eyed.

“I’m gonna go get her some food and water, she is probably dehydrated now.” Louis mumbled and walked out of the room.

“Wait...What?...Where am I? Oh my god... My head!” She quickly shut her eyes and used her hands to shield her from the light. I ran over to the windows and closed the curtains. I walked back over to her and slowly grabbed her hands and pulled them away from her face. She blinked a couple of times before readjusting to the new light.

“Scar, are you alright?” I looked at her with pleading eyes. She blinked back a couple of new tears from her eyes and I got off my knees and wrapped my arms around her and held her tight to my chest.

I swear she molded right to my body, like she was suppose to be mine.

(End POV)

(Scarlet POV)

I sound found myself back to reality but I couldn’t breathe. I awoke struggling for breathe. I gasped for air and quickly sat up. I looked around the room in shock. Where the heck was I? Then I realized I was in the common room.

“I’m gonna go get her some food and water, she is probably dehydrated now” Louis mumbled and walked out of the room.

“Wait...What?...Where am I? Oh my god... My head!” A searing pain shot through my head and the light in the room was too much.

Harry ran and I heard him shut the curtains. I still kept my eyes covered just in case. I soon felt hands grab mine and pull them away from my face. I blinked a couple of times so I could re adjust to the light.

“Scar, are you alright?” His voice was filled with concern as he looked up with pleading eyes.

Then reality hit me, and everything that happened while I passed out had happened. Gemma, Harry’s sister I hadn’t even heard about till moments ago told me I had yet to make the biggest choice of my life. I could feel the tears forming in my eyes. Everything was so over whelming, I quickly blinked back my tears, but Harry wasn’t having it. He got off his knees and wrapped his arms around me. He pulled me in close to his chest. I buried my head into his chest.

I swear it was like I was molded to fit his body. Like it was only meant for me and only me.

I remembered what Gemma had told me and for once in my life I finally took the advice my parents gave me and gave into Harry. I moved closer so that he was stretched on the sofa full length and I hugged his chest, entangled my legs with his, and laid my head in between his neck and his shoulder. He wrapped his arms around me protectively and kissed the top of my head.

With that I quickly shut my eyes, and fell into a heavy sleep.
