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?

Chapter 16

(Sarah’s POV)

Things were honestly a hell hole. Things were so messed up. When I woke up this morning I would had never imagine Zayn pulling me into the common room and asking me if I had loved him. I mean I wasn’t supposed to, I mean bloody hell he was an assassin, a murderer! But I always felt a pull to him, I always was drawn to mysterious boys, I was always drawn to danger. That’s exactly what Zayn was.

When he asked me I couldn’t lie, I couldn’t lie to myself, so I told him the truth. I was so happy I had finally told him and I guess Niall had asked Bri the same question because Niall Hadn’t left her side since they came in. Now here we all were sitting in the common room in shock as Scarlet and Harry ran out of the room.

Honestly what a day and we weren’t even through this, I was going to need a serious drink after all of this. Not a moment later and Harry came running back in the room with a very pale Scarlet.

He placed her on the sofa, and she was unconscious. I ran over to her side and looked down at her. Niall and Bri ran out of the room to go get her and ice pack while Harry explained.

“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 SAKE 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 I smacked him playfully.

What an idiot! Why would he say that! I seriously needed to have a talk with this boy. He would always say the worst things with the worst timing in the world.

“Excuse us for a moment.” I said before grabbing on to Zayn’s shirt aggressively and dragged him out of the room.

I pulled him until we were out of the common room and slammed him up against the wall. I then slapped him upside the head for being a complete idiot.

“Ow, what the bloody hell was that for!” He said rubbing the side of his head.

“Zayn you can’t just blurt things out like that! Harry and Scarlet are on the breaking edge, and he needs you the most and all you call say is you two never catch a break! What kind of person does that!” I hissed from under my teeth.

He seemed to ponder the thought of it, which earned him another slap upside the head.

“Zayn honestly you are such an idiot sometimes! I swear I could just-“I never got to finish my sentence as Zayn grabbed a hold of my hands and spun me so I was up against the wall. He crashed his lips against mine. Rough at first but soon I gave in and our kiss deepened. His hands cupped my face as he planted kisses down my neck. His kisses were like fire as they burned down my skin. A fire that I couldn’t live without. I ran my finger up along his neck and entangled my fingers in his hair pulling him closer to me. We both finally pulled away. I sighed. I couldn’t be angry at him for more than five minutes. I didn’t know how he had this effect on me but he did.

“I may be an idiot, but I’m your idiot.” He smirked. I simply rolled my eyes and pulled him back in.

“I could really use a drink, I don’t care if it’s not 5pm, it is bloody somewhere! I think all of us- OH MY GOD!” Bri screamed as she saw Zayn and me up against the wall. I started laughing hysterically and Niall started to laugh at Bri’s reaction.

Zayn groaned but managed to pull away. I quickly grabbed his hand and he pulled me close as my left hand held his waist.

“I think I could really use a drink as well.” I smirked and all four of us walked into the kitchen to crack open the best whiskey they had.

Liam later came in still holding the phone to his ear.

“Um yeah I think it would be nice, you should come, yeah pack for two days, and I’ll drive you back to the academy after your visits, Yes love I’m sure she’s fine. Alright I will let Scarlet know. Take care babe. I love you too. Bye.” He ended the call and looked up at us.

“How is she?”

“Still not up yet, but she will wake up” I said.

“Hey mate do you want a glass?” Niall said holding up the Whiskey.

“Yes, unless you guys are having something else.”

“Well Sarah, Zayn, and I are.” Niall said as Bri hit him.

Oh but little did he know I thought. Bri had an entire liquor cabinet back at her flat. She wasn’t really the girl who you thought would drink cocktails… she was the girl who could drink rum straight from the bottle and be completely fine the next morning. For some odd reason Scarlet and I could never figure out how Bri never got fazed by liquor.

“Um forgetting someone?” she smirked at me. Oh Niall was in for it.

“Umm am I missing something?” He said in his Irish accent. She smacked him across the chest and grabbed the bottle out of his hand.

“First of yes you are missing something you forgot me, second off you don’t pour half a glass of whiskey in a glass, it’s meant to be drank over a period of time unless you’re doing shots. Two you’re forgetting ice; you don’t put in a lot just two ice cubes. You fill the glass three fingers full.” She poured each glass quickly and slid them across the counter to each of us with a huge smile. Looking up at Niall satisfied with her knowledge of her favorite drink.

“Uhh- I mean care to explain? No offense love but you do not look like you drink whiskey? Let alone anything strong.”

“Offense taken and you clearly didn’t have enough time to look around my flat that night you dropped me off. Also I’m not a light weight. Believe me, I could shoot back 20 shots of this right now and not be drunk, and I will probably wake up in the morning perfectly fine. I don’t get sick and I don’t get drunk, no matter how much I drink. It’s a gift you could say.” She winked at him before she downed her glass in a matter of seconds.

“Oh my- Oh my god? Really so you mean straight vodka- Uh- rum? - Anything strong? Really?” Niall said dumbfound.

Bri only laughed, and I simply walked over to the cabinet and pulled out five different types of liquor.

“Watch this.” I smirked. I knew we were going to have to prove to the boys, so I created a drink for Bri to prove herself to the boys.

“Niall if you still think Bri can’t do it, then I want each of you to drink this, it has vodka, whiskey, rum, and Jack Daniels in it.” I grabbed the coke from the fridge, and plugged in the blender from the side. I dumped half a glass of Vodka, one fourth of a glass of whiskey, a half a glass of rum, and all of the Jack Daniels, and the full can of coke into the blender.

“Each of you has to drink one full glass filled to the top of this as fast as you can, after 3 minutes we will do a little test in the back yard, you will have to run to Zayn and Liam who will be set on the other side of the yard. I will spin you around ten times each and whoever gets to the guys first win. Sound fair?”

Bri winked at me and Niall and the boys yelled in anticipation for Niall.

“Are you sure you want to do this? You can back out and I won’t have to beat your pretty little face hun.” Bri smirked. Niall simply looked back at Zayn and Liam who egged him on.

“Alright, remember this must be chugged back as fast as you can. Ready?”

“YES!” Niall screamed.

“Always.” Bri said sweetly.

I poured the mix into each of their glasses so that they were evenly filled to the rim. They grabbed their glasses and brought it to their mouth waiting for my mark.

“On the count of three, One- Liam get ready to start the timer after the both finish, Two- Zayn love can you make sure they both drink every last drop, Three- GO!”

Bri and Niall quickly chugged back the drink, it took them about ten seconds to finish the very large glass Zayn and I managed to find. They both slammed the glasses down hard on the table. Liam quickly started the timer.

“3 minutes, and then we will head outside.” Bri smirked at me. Niall however looked at me with dazed eyes.

“Jesus how much JD’s did you put in there?”

“The entire bottle, but you can’t drop out Niall, I warned you, and surely you don’t wanna lose do you?” Bri and I stifled out a laugh. Niall only became more determined.

“Alright 2 minutes, one minute left now.”

“Okay all of us need to get outside now!” My voice filled with excitement.

We were all cheering for either Niall or Bri when Louis walked in.

“What the hell are you guys up to?”

“Care to watch Lou? Trust me; it won’t be something you wanna miss.” I smirked stepping outside and down the back steps to the large backyard, it must have been at least half the size of a large football field and Liam and Zayn were already at the other side. Niall was slowly making his way down the steps and Bri was laughing the entire time.

“Okay sure.” He ran up to catch after me.

“You spin Niall and I will spin Bri. Ten spins and then let him go alright?” I yelled over to him where Niall had drifted off to.

“2 minutes 30 seconds!” Liam yelled across the yard.

“Start spinning Lou!” I called out to him.

I finished spinning Bri and Lou with Niall. We turned them in the right direction towards Zayn and Liam.

“3 minutes!”

“ONE, TWO, THREE! GOO!!!” I screamed and Bri ran.

Niall took one step and somehow ran sideways and fell. He stumbled to get up but Louis helped him up.

“Niall she’s beating you! Hurry up man!”

That when Niall scanned the field to see Bri walking backwards, tempting Niall. I was laughing so hard tears were coming down my face. Niall regained his balance but he was smashed, and ran in all different direction.

Louis and I ran to see the action as Niall was catching up to Bri. Niall was sprinting, he was trying his best to keep himself straight, and he ran right into the tree. Louis and I fell to the grass in tears.

I was laughing so hard, I didn’t bother to help Niall up, so Bri ran back over and helped Niall up. She then kissed his cheek, and slowly moon walked backwards over to Liam and Zayn. Niall then tried to run and catch up, which he only ended up running sideways again and falling over. By this point everyone was in a fit.

Niall was so drunk, and here Bri was walking perfectly fine not affected in the slightest.

“Niall! You lost mate! You should have seen yourself! Oh my god! I haven’t laughed that hard in a very long time!”

“Oh he will see it! I recorded it all!” Liam smirked.

“Niall love? Are you alright? Would you like to stay out here and lie on the grass, or come inside?” Bri said cheerfully.

“Its 3pm now Bri you might as well just leave him, we can just stay out on the deck for awhile until Scarlet is up.” Zayn said.

“Actually she’s up that’s what I came into the kitchen for, but I’m sure she’s probably asleep by now or something.” Louis said.

“Well I guess we can all relax on the deck, until she’s up again.” I said.

We all walked back to the deck leaving Niall passed out on the grass in the middle of the backyard. We curled up to a nice fire Zayn had started on the back deck. I was curled up with Zayn on a chair, while Liam was strumming his guitar he had ran back inside to get.

Louis had brought us out some new glasses of whiskey. We sat there for an hour or two simply talking of drunken stories we all had. I had just finished mine when Scarlet and Harry walked out onto the deck. Harry had his arm around her waist, but she looked a lot better than earlier today.

“How you feeling love?”

“I’m better thanks. Um I have a proposition for all of you, if you guys want to come.”

“Ou is it a surprise!? I love surprises.” Louis beamed. Scarlet smiled and sat down on the outdoor sofa with Harry beside her.

“Um I was wondering if you wanted to head up to a old family vacation house of mine, maybe for a day or two… just to get out of this place. It’s a very big house so we could all have our own rooms if you want, and there is a riding barn close to it, I thought we could head up there and get out of this stuffy house and have some fun?”

“Yes!” Louis beamed.

“Oh and Liam, Danielle is welcome to join if she is free.” Scarlet smiled at him.

I hadn’t seen her smile like this in a very long time. I knew the old vacation house. Scarlet had brought Bri and I there up one year, we had so much fun, we did bon fires, horseback riding, went on the ATV’s, went into town to do shopping.Not to mention the different rooms she had inside the house, arcade room, home theater, large gym, a library, you name it she had it.

“I’m in! Oh and I think Niall would like it to!” she smirked and looked across the yard to see Niall still passed out on the lawn.

Scarlet must have followed her gaze because she got out of her seat and looked over the rail to see Niall in the distance.

“Is he alright?” Scarlet asked.

“Didn’t think Bri could hold her liquor.” I said.

“Oh and boy was the wrong!” Bri yelled in victory. Liam then walked over and showed Harry and her video. Harry had tears in his eyes, he was laughing so hard and Scarlet stifled out a laugh to.

“I’m in as well.” I said smiling over to Zayn who nodded to me.

“I just texted Danielle, she says she would love to come.” Liam said smiling at Scarlet.

“Alright it’s settled, we should probably start packing, and we leave tonight.”

We all walked back into the house while Zayn and Harry went to go get Niall.

I found Scarlet and pulled her into a hug. “What’s this for?” Scarlet muffled. “Did Harry tell you yet? You guys look like you have made up.”

“He hasn’t told me anything. I’m going to give him a chance...” she never finished her sentence, but I didn’t want her to be upset again so I left it at that. Zayn gave me a ride back to my flat, and I quickly packed my bag and we drove back to the mansion ready to go.


(End POV)

(Scarlet’s POV)

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.

My parents had said to listen with my heart, follow with my body, and focus on the truth in my mind. Gemma told me let myself be free for once. The only place that came to my mind where I could be free and just let myself go.

The family vacation house I thought. The old horse stables were up there. I could go riding, and see all of the horse I used to ride as a young girl. I knew that this was the only way to clear my mind and let myself be free. I quickly woke up and shook Harry awake.

“I need to go up to my old family vacation house. Harry I need to leave. The sooner the better...”

“Scarlet I’m not letting you go alone, there are people after you!” He looked at me with pleading eyes.

I quickly got off the sofa and paced back and forth. Gemma told me I couldn’t look at everything one sided. I need to let Harry in, even if it meant I had to say this.

“Then come with me… All of you… Bri, Sarah, the boys. I don’t care, But Harry I need to do this. I need to go up. Nobody knew we had this house, only my family. We will be safe.”

“Scarlet, I need to tell you the truth though- I need you to know-“

I winced at his words. I knew he needed to try and tell me about Luce, but I couldn’t pull myself to do it. The evidence was there, but Gemma came back into my head. I sighed and turned to look at him.

“We both have some explaining to do, but right now we need to get the others on board, we need to leave tonight Harry… I need to know if you’re on board or not. Either way I’m leaving. So I am gonna ask you, are you coming or staying?”

I held out my hand. Part of me so badly wanted him to grab my hand, and the other part wanted to pull my hand away and run. I had to keep it there, no matter how hard I wanted to run, I left my hand there as he looked at my hand before sighing and taking it.

He pulled himself off the sofa and wrapped his hand around my waist. Although I hated the thought of it, part of me enjoyed it.

“I will follow you to the moon and back, I’m not leaving you to go up to a vacation house unprotected.”

I still couldn’t believe he still thought I was C.I.A… I guess this was just one more thing I had to add onto my list of things to spill to this boy. We walked into the kitchen and out to the back yard where everyone sat on the deck in front of the fire.

“How you feeling love?” Sarah asked. She was curled up beside Zayn.

“I’m better thanks. Um I have a proposition for all of you, if you guys want to come.” I said hesitantly. Harry lightly pinched the side of my waist encouraging me to go on.

“Ou is it a surprise!? I love surprises.” Louis beamed. I smiled and sat down on the outdoor sofa with Harry beside me.

“Um I was wondering if you wanted to head up to a old family vacation house of mine, maybe for a day or two… just to get out of this place. It’s a very big house so we could all have our own rooms if you want, and there is a riding barn close to it, I thought we could head up there and get out of this stuffy house and have some fun?”

“Yes!” Louis beamed.

“Oh and Liam, Danielle is welcome to join if she is free.” I smiled at him.

“I’m in! Oh and I think Niall would like it to!” Bri smirked and looked across the yard to see Niall still passed out on the lawn.

I followed her gaze because and got out of my seat and looked over the rail to see Niall in the distance.

“Is he alright?” I asked.

“Didn’t think Bri could hold her liquor.” Sarah said.

“Oh and boy was the wrong!” Bri yelled in victory. Liam then walked over and showed Harry and I the video. Harry had tears in his eyes, he was laughing so hard and I couldn’t contain a laugh.

“I’m in as well.” Sarah said smiling over to Zayn who nodded to her.

“I just texted Danielle, she says she would love to come.” Liam said smiling back at me.

“Alright it’s settled, we should probably start packing, and we leave tonight.”  We all walked back into the house while Zayn and Harry went to go get Niall. I was on my way to go pack when Sarah grabbed me and pulled me into a hug.

“What’s this for?” I muffled. “Did Harry tell you yet? You guys look like you have made up”

“He hasn’t told me anything. I’m going to give him a chance...” I was going to tell her ‘I’m going to give him a chance to explain his side, but facts are facts’ But I stopped myself, because once again Gemma popped into my head telling me to look at both sides. Sarah and Bri both left to grab their things while the rest of us packed.

We all climbed into a black hummer. I took the driver’s seat and Harry sat up front with me. He looked at me before I started the engine.

“Your positive you wanna go up there? I don’t understand why I just can’t explain to you what happened here…”

I turned to him and sighed.

“I’m never a 100% positive about anything, second I need to do this to clear my mind. We both have things we need to get off our chests and this house is always the start of new beginnings, it’s where my mum and dad got married, it’s where I took Bri and Sarah, and that day all of us had become best friends ever since, and now I’m taking you there. I-I’m- look please just trust me.” He looked into my eyes and sighed.

“I don’t trust a lot of people…” He sighed before continuing.

“So I’m going to take a leap of faith and trust you.” He faintly smiled showing his dimples.

I smiled back at him and grabbed his hand and intertwined my fingers with his.

“Thank you… that’s all I ask.”

I pull the car in drive and we drove for 2 hours on the highway, before heading up into country land. Soon everyone fell asleep, accept for Harry and I. Harry never let go of my hand. I swear we both thought the same thing. If one of us was to let go, we would lose them for good. So I held onto Harry the whole drive up.

We finally reached my family vacation house. The sun had already set, but there was still a bit of light in the sky. I looked at Harry and we both let go of each other. We undid our seat belts and woke the others. We all got out of the car at the same time. I smiled as the memories came flooding back to me. This large stone house had been here for so many years, yet it still looked brand new. When I was here, I was home.

“Wow.” They all stared at the house as I unpacked the trunk. “I know.” I said. “This is even bigger than the mansion! Harry look at it!” Louis yelled with excitement.

“Hey! It is not!.. Ok maybe it is!” Harry smirked and turned around to me. I knew was he wanted.

“All the bedrooms are upstairs, feel free to pick anyone you want!”

That’s when Harry looked at Louis before sprinting like a mad man towards the house. Louis quickly snapped out of it and caught up to Harry and tackled him to the ground. They ran to the house each trying to trip each other to pick the room they wanted first. Louis managed to grab Harry’s shoe and throw it across the yard. Louis stuck out his tongue and flipped him the bird as he ran to the door and got to the door to push it open only to run face first into a locked door. He turned back to me.

“SCARLET THE KEYS! QUICKLY THROW ME THE KEYS!” Louis yelled.

I ripped them out of my pockets and whipped them all the way to Louis. He yelled in victory, before Harry’s shoe hit his stomach hard. Louis bent over in pain and dropped the keys. Harry ran up the steps and pulled the keys from his hand and was about to unlock the door, when Louis grabbed his ankle and pulled. Harry lost his balance and fell. Louis ran inside and did a fist pump to the air in victory.

“Stop acting like children!” I yelled out. I couldn’t hold it in anymore I burst out into laughter along with the rest of them when I saw Harry sit up with grass in his hair and his arms folded across his chest and his pouting face.

We all finally made it inside. I saw everyone doing their own thing, Sarah was pulling Zayn into the game room, Niall was begging Bri to help him find the fridge and Liam and Danielle were making their way upstairs, while Louis and Harry were racing each other down the stairs.

I was smiling upon seeing everyone. I was just so happy. I hadn’t seen the house so active in years. Only one thought came to my mind. I breathed in the familiar sent and closed my eyes.

Finally I was home.
