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 17

Scarlet's POV

Once everyone was settled, I made my way upstairs. I passed the second floor and walked to the end of the hallway. I pressed the code into the keypad and the walls slid open and the elevator appeared. I always loved my dad for building my room of the third floor with Luce. I was about to walk into the elevator when Louis saw me walking into the wall.

“Scarlet what the hell are you doing? Have you gone mental? You’re walking into a wall!” Louis ran over to my side and I couldn’t hold in my laughter. “Oh my- this wasn’t here when I looked-Scarlet care to explain why you have a hidden elevator?”

“Um it leads up to my bedroom…”

“Oh I am not taking no for answer I’m coming with you!”

“As long as you help carry up my bags.”


We both climbed into the elevator and I hit the arrow pointing up. The doors chimed and then opened. I stepped into my room and turned back around to see Louis staring at the room in awe.

We stepped into the lounge area, with a large leather sofa, flat screen TV, and on the far wall were three large windows. I clicked the light and each of the blinds slowly rose and the windows turned sideways and opened up onto the private balcony.

I then hit another button on the wall and told Louis to sit on the sofa. He quickly ran onto the sofa as the floor beneath him started to move. The floor slide back to reveal a full length pool with a small tunnel on the left side. The right wall then pushed back to reveal the four bunk beds in case we ever had friends come visit over the summer. Each had their own queen size bed, and a ladder that went up and showed the other two top bunks. Behind the ladder was the door to the walk in closet. I hit the final button on the wall and the large wall that looked like one giant mirror slowly twisted like the windows revealing two double beds placed together with stairs lifting out to lead up to the ensuite.

I turned back around to see Louis on the sofa with his jaw dropped. I started to laugh, why did everyone have this reaction when they came up here.

“You-you know you have a pool in the middle of your room right?”

“Yes silly, and see that tunnel on the left? It leads out to the pool outside on the deck, and leads down to the lower level with the indoor pool.”

“Wow, so I’m so sleeping up here in that guest bed tonight” He continued to stare at my room in awe.

“What? Um no this is my room! I get to sleep here-“

“DIBS!” He shouted. I looked at him baffled. “You cannot claim dibs on my bedroom!”

“Scarlet you must respect the rule of Dibs, I have claimed it before you could, you still get your bed, but I get to stay up here with you.”  I knew there was no negotiating with him, weather I liked it or not I had to respect dibs, even though it was my bedroom. “Alright fine, after I unpack do you want to scare the others?”

“Do you even have to ask?”

“Guess not, I’m going to page Bri’s room, give me one second”

I walked back over to the elevator and pressed a little mic over to Bri’s room.


“Yeah what is it? Hey have you seen Louis? Harry is looking for him, and I think he is armed and dangerous” she laughed out.

“He’s with me, just get everyone into the pool, Louis and I are gonna go through the tunnel.”

“Ahh, I see! Alright will do love! See you in one minute!”

“Wait how am I going to get changed if Harry is down stairs looking for me?” He asked. “What room number did you pick?”

“Um room six I think?” I sighed and ran a hand through my hair. “This is a onetime deal; I never do it because it’s for emergencies only alright?”

“Um ok?”

I grabbed his hand and we walked over to the guest beds and pulled him into the walk in closet, I slid two double doors open and led him down a hallway. I finally reached outside Louis room and pressed in the code, the wall unlocked and turned open inside his room. He ran inside and grabbed his trunks. He ran back to me and I quickly locked the wall back up and we made it back to my closet. I grabbed a red bikini and changed in my ensuite. I came out and Louis was folding his clothes in a pile on the sofa.



I dove into the pool and heard Lou dive in after me. I swam to the surface and turned to him.

“Follow me, were going through this port and we will end up in the hot tub If Bri is smart She will have Harry facing her and Sarah while we sneak up from behind and push him in the water. Sound good?”

“Oh Hazza is going to kill us!”

I took a breath of air before we swam down to the port; we swam through and followed the water down into the hot tub. We both rose out of the water the same time not making a sound. I winked at Louis to see Harry had his back turned to us. We each grabbed one of his shoulders and pushed him down into the water.

Everyone was in a fit by the time Harry came back up to the surface.

“How the hell did you two get down here!?” he said.

Louis was laughing so hard, that I was the one who had to explain.

“Obviously someone hasn’t seen my room.” I smirked.

Harry then smiled before slashing water in my face. This turned into a huge war between the girls and the guys. Finally the boys gave in and we all got out going get changed and start a bon fire out back.

I went back up to my room and changed into a big hoodie, and leggings. I put my hair up in a messy bun. I was about to leave I stopped and looked into the mirror. I had been avoiding the one thing I came here to too. Harry was going to keep pressing the issue that he needed to talk to me, tell me everything. So did I, but I didn’t want to.

I looked back up to the mirror, I need to do this. The sooner the better. I walked over and grabbed the envelope out of my bag. I looked through the photos once more. Every photo I looked at made me feel sick to my stomach. I finally got to the last photo the picture of my parents X’d out and Luce walking into our old apartment. That last one broke me; I couldn’t stop myself as the tears streamed down my face. I quickly remembered what I had been asked to do, and I needed to tell Harry the truth about everything.

I put the picture back in the envelope and walked to the elevator. I whipped away the tears from my eyes and headed out back. I saw the boys trying to light the fire, I quickly jumped in and grabbed a jug of gasoline from the shed I poured it on the wood and grabbed the lighter from Niall’s hand I quickly lit the flame and then tossed in the lighter. I wasn’t even concerned with my actions; I was focused on getting Harry down to the one place I needed to go. I turned back to see everyone in shock at me for what I just did.

“What? It’s not like any of you haven’t done it! It's how you normally cover up your tracks after your done beating the shit out of your targets, so why is this any different?!” I turned my focus onto Harry.

“I need to speak with you.”

“Now?” he asked with pleading eyes.

“Yes now!”

That’s when he caught sight of my eyes. He quickly got out of his chair and followed me to the woods.
I could see a faint glow in the woods and I knew where I had to take Harry. We walked in silence for about 10 minutes. I was about to take another step when an old tree root caught me foot and I started to fall. Harry quickly grabbed me before I hit the ground and pulled me into his arms.

“Are you alright?”

I could see the worry in his voice but I needed to focus. I put both hands on Harry’s chest and pushed him away. I dusted my knees off and turned back to look at him.

“I’m fine.” I sneered.

I knew I shouldn’t be rude but I was getting fed up. I quickly turned away and kept walking until we reached my mom’s favorite place. A large tree that sat in the middle of the woods, with blue lights that hung down off the branches. I quickly walked over to the trunk of the tree and searched for the heart. I found the carving of my mom and dad’s initials craved inside a heart. I then saw Luce and my attempt at creating our own. I sighed and pressed my head to the tree and closed my eyes.

I was brought back to reality when a voice spoke.

“Where are we?”

“My mom’s favorite place. My dad built it for her when she had us. Then my mom brought Luce and I here, she said it was one place that always cleared her mind and helped her through her problems.”

I turned back to Harry and blinked back my tears. I had to get this over with. It was now or never.

“Tell me everything, tell me your side and when you’re finished I have something to show you.”

I slid down the tree and closed my eyes as he started from the very beginning.

“We were new at this whole thing at the time. That’s why we left when Luce told us to. She knew you would find her. I didn’t know until now how quickly you had found her. All of us didn’t know what to do so we left her there. It was the worst mistake of our lives… honestly Scarlet, I know words can never express how horrible I feel about the entire thing, but I promise you we didn’t kill her” He sighed.

Once he was finished I opened my eyes and pulled out the envelope. I threw the envelope at him with tears running down my face.

“…then explain these you coward!” I yelled. He winced at my words but slowly picked up the envelope. He opened the file and pulled out the picture, he carefully scanned each one tears started to form in his eyes by the evidence I had.

“Scarlet… these photos… these were pinned up in our old agency… Luce was our assigned case by our parents, they had this entire wall, it had all of her information, and these pictures were taken so we could have a better look at who we were protecting… I know it looks bad, But Scarlet please… your parents were crossed out because they got killed, that only left Luce… or so we thought… Honest Scarlet, you have to believe us!”

I took a moment for it all to sink in; I put my head in my hands and sat there for a moment before I heard Harry come closer to me.

“Please Scarlet; I swear on my heart I didn’t kill Luce. You’re right I am a coward, I should had never left you in the alleyway, I understand if you hate me or don’t believe me but I just had to tell you”

If Harry and I were meant for each other, I needed to stop fighting it. I needed to let myself be free. I had to let go of the past, I had to listen with my heart and let my feelings take over. It was time to finally let go. It was time to be free.

“I would never hate you, I could never hate you and I believe you, I don’t think you killed her Haz, you’re not a coward. You didn’t know, I can’t blame you. I won’t blame you. “

“Please Scarlet, I’m sorry. I have been all my life for that one day but I just needed you to know- wait what did you say?” I pushed his long hair out of his eyes and looked at his beautiful green eyes.

“I said I believe you. Harry I look into your eyes and I don’t see anything but the truth. I’m taking a leap of faith and I am going to trust you. Harry I love you and I’m sorry for pushing you away”

He let the tears flow from his eyes and his eyes started to shine. He smiled. Dimples and all and leaned in and kissed me. I slowly rose from the tree, never breaking our kiss. He pushed me so my back was against the tree. My hands hooked around his neck and I entangled my fingers in his hair. He groaned softly against my lips, before he quickly deepened our kiss. I nibbled his lower lip and pulled it slowly. He slowly opened his eyes and I let go and smiled at him.

“No matter what I will always love you” he murmured in my ears.

“Want to seal that promise?” he looked at me confused before I pulled out my pocket knife. I spun around and grabbed his hand, we both held onto the knife as we carved out a heart and wrote our initials in the tree. I blew away any pieces of wood left and he stood back to get a better look at our craving.

“I’m so happy I finally have you” he kissed the top of my head and snaked his arms around my waist and pulled me close so that my back was pressed up against his chest.

“You’ll never lose me” I smiled and let out a little laugh. He leaned in close to my ear and whispered.

“Perfect because your mine”

I turned my head and kissed his cheek. For the first time in a long time I had felt safe. Safe with the one I was truly in love with. I was safe with Harry.

“I guess we should get back, it’s late.” He said untangling himself from me.

“Yeah the others will start to worry.” I was about to turn around and grab Harry’s hand when I heard a loud branch snap. I quickly turned towards the noise and looked into the shadows.

“Babe, it’s probably just an animal.”

That’s when I remembered the note.

“Remember Scarlet I have eyes everywhere.”

I quickly spun to Harry and shook it off. We walked back to everyone and sat by the fire. Although I was talking with everyone, one thing haunted my mind.

When I looked into the shadows, I had seen the outline of something, and to see human like eyes staring back at me. Someone was watching us.

I quickly got shaken from my thoughts by Harry.

“Babe are you ok? You have been staring at the forest for a long time”

“Um I’m ok, probably just seeing things.”

But I wasn’t. I knew what I saw. I had clearly seen a pair of human eyes staring back at me in the woods.
