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 19

It was mass chaos in the barn. Bullets flying, everything felt like slow motion, the only thing that seemed to be moving fast were me and Harry. We worked in sync back to back take out multiple men. I felt someone on my right I turned and threw a dagger over Harry’s shoulder; it went straight between the eyes. He then grabbed my forearm and twisted me over so I was in front of him while he took out the guy from behind. It was like we moved as one, I was out of ammo of my hand gun and I ripped out the two guns from behind and spun myself so I was pressed into Harry’s chest and lifted my arms under his and shot the two men running towards him while he shot the one running at me from behind. I pulled out another knife and Harry and I spun back to back.

I threw the knife and killed the guy aiming at Louis. I saw Harry out of ammo and threw him a full barrel. He then bent me over and shot the guys coming from my left. I stood up and ran towards Harry, he bent and I rolled over his back and shot the final guy that came in from his side. I slowly stood up and spun around to see everyone else finishing up. Zayn then started pulling out the daggers. He went to pull out the last one when the man gasped as he pulled it out of the crook of his neck.

“Looks like there’s one still alive.” He mumbled. He was about to stab him when I ran and tore the dagger out of his hand.

“We need in tell, we can’t kill him just yet.” I turned back to the man who looked at me in disbelief.

“You think you can just kill me, at my vacation house, in my stables with horses and innocent people and other animals and just expect to kill me?” I sneered at the man.

I didn’t wait for a response. I picked him up and threw him up against one of the wooden pillars. I gave him a nasty left hook to his nose, and then an upper cut to his chin. I then threw him to the ground and jabbed my ridding boot into his throat.


“I-I ain’- I ain’t bloody- tell you nothing-” I only pressed down harder on his throat. Then I leaned down and grabbed him with my riding gloves and punched him again.

“Who sent you!” I screamed.

“Soon you won’t have anyone left- you’ll be as dead as your stupid sister.” He looked at me and spit the blood out of his mouth.

This only made me angrier. At this point I shut everything off, my emotions, my humanity, everything went out like a light and I went dark.

I turned quickly and grabbed the dagger out of Zayn’s hands. I stabbed him in his stomach and turned the dagger 90 degrees. He screamed out in pain, but I continued. I pulled out the dagger and brought it back to his neck wound and stuck it in him and rotated the knife again. He yelled out as I stabbed it deeper. I then ripped out the knife. I put it to his heart and started to press. His breath quickened and he started gasping for breath.

“I’m going to ask again, who sent you!” I sneered pressing the knife a bit deeper and started pricking his skin.

“Alright I’ll- I’ll bloody tell you! - Just put the dagger- down- Look I was sent by-“ His eyes rolled back and I was beyond done. I pulled the dagger high above my head and pierced it through his heart. Tears swelled in my eyes. I was cracking at the seams.

He gasped out in breath and looked me in the eyes.

“Scarlet stop! That’s enough!” Harry yelled. I wouldn’t though. I tuned him out.

I leaned down close to his ear and whispered.

“And that was for my sister you bloody-!” I was torn from his grasp and I snapped. Harry torn me away from the man and hugged me close. He grabbed my wrist and tried to grab the dagger but I wouldn’t let go.

“Scarlet drop it!” He yelled.

I didn’t and then he grabbed my wrist and slammed it against one of the walls I instantly dropped the dagger and looked up into his eyes. I came crashing down to reality and broke into his arms. I sobbed as he lowered me to the ground. He pulled me close and murmured something to me that I couldn’t here. I looked down through my blurry eyes to see my entire body shaking.

“Lads we should probably get this cleaned up, after this we need to have a talk with everyone including the girls…” He must have looked down at me but I was still looking at my blood soaked hands.

“Scarlet, you should let the girls take you back to the house and get you cleaned up... I’m gonna get the barn cleaned... and I guess I will see you back at the-“Louis then cut in.

“Mate you need to take her back… we need to explain to the girls what just happened. Scarlet’s in no state to answer their questions. Go on Haz, take her right now. Go!” Harry slowly picked me up and cradled me in his arms. He walked outside the barn and I faintly saw someone running towards us.

“Scarlet, oh my goodness! What happened to the barn? Is everyone alright?! Are the Horses okay!? Where is Eleanor? Who the hell are you?”  I then recognized the voice. It was Luke. I slowly looked up and opened my eyes to face Luke.

“I’m Harry now get out of my way before I strangle you.” He sneered.

“Let go of Scarlet and then I’ll get out of your way!” Luke snapped.

“Don’t bloody test my patience’s. I said move.” Harry replied coldly. I lightly put my hand on Harry’s chest.

“Harr- Don’t it’s only- Luke- He works here- Harry tell him the- truth.” I responded faintly.

“Someone is after Scarlet, We got attacked while we were on the trails… all of them are dead though. Nobody is hurt. Least I don’t think so. Will you move now?” Harry said.

“Oh my- Scarlet- this is all my fault.” Luke replied. Harry walked me over and placed me in the ATV.

“What did you do?” He sneered walking back over to Luke so he was up in his face.

“Someone- some person called the other day- I swear I had no idea- They asked about riding lessons- they asked if they could speak to the owner of the barn- I said the you weren’t here- then they asked for your name to see if they could reach your cell- I completely forgot- I told them you owned the barn, but you weren’t here- they hung up- I thought it was an odd phone call- honestly Scarlet I had no idea-“

Harry was about to lose it.

“Harry that’s enough! Luke you didn’t know its fine. Can you just make sure El is okay please and the horses as well. Harry. Get. Over. Here. Now!”

His dark eyes glared over to mine and he let go of Luke and his eyes softened and walked back over to me. He climbed in and drove us back to the house. He rushed me upstairs and up to my room. He carried me over to the ensuite. He grabbed a cloth and turned on the sink he stuck my hand in the water. The water instantly turned crimson. Tears started to swell up in my eyes again.

I had turned everything off. I had gone completely dark. I had become a monster in a matter of seconds. Harry looked up from my hands and saw me. He dropped the cloth and pulled me into a tight embrace.

“Shh love it’s alright, it’s okay. It’s over. This will never happen again.” He held me close but I couldn’t stand it.

“No! Harry you don’t understand- I –that wasn’t me-I shouldn’t have done that… I turned into a monster Harry- I’m a monster…” I sobbed into his chest, but he only leaned out to look me in the eyes.

“You are not a monster. He said things that should have never been said to you. I’m sorry I didn’t step in sooner. Look love we will find him. I know we will, Please do not feel guilty for what you did. I know things look bad right now but were here, were together and no one is ever going to break that. No one is ever going to break us.”

I let myself process what Harry had just told me. Sure when he told me those things I wanted to believe him, I wanted just to believe that things were going to be ok, that Harry and I would never get broken apart. But I didn’t. Something deep down in the pit of my stomach I had a feeling his words were going to back fire on us.

I had a feeling no matter how hard Harry and I would fight, that there was going to be someone out there pulling us apart.

“I need to change out of these clothes can you give me a few minutes?” I asked quietly.

“Sure love, do you need my help?” He smirked. I smiled and stuck out my tongue.

“As great as that sounds no I’m fine now out! Before I use one of my studded heels as a weapon” I laughed and he only raised a brow at me.

“Feisty, I like that Red.”

“Wait- since when is my name Red?”

“Cause you have a temper, you have a fire in you, your hair is dark red, your names basically means the color red, plus Lou calls you Scar, I thought I could give you one as well, but if you don’t like it I could always call you princess.” He leaned up against the door frame and crossed his arms over his chest and gave me a mischievous smile with dimples.

“No! - No Red is perfect.” I walked over and gave him a peck on the lips before shooed him out of the room so I could change.

Once changed I headed down stairs, I heard yelling coming from the kitchen. I slowly walked in to almost everyone arguing and the note in the centre of the island.

“She shouldn’t be going at all Harry! Not alone and certainly not with only you to protect her” Louis spoke out. “I’m sure I can handle it!”

“I agree we are not letting her go by herself, I’m going, they won’t see me and Sarah and they wouldn’t think or know what to do with us catching them by surprise”

“To hell you are Bri! I’m not letting you go to some stupid ball just to get yourself killed!” Niall turned towards Bri. “Yeah you guys can teach us how to shoot, throw knives, I don’t know, but were going.” Sarah mumbled.

“I agree with Niall love, I’m not letting you go.” Zayn said coldly. “You’re not the boss of me Malik! So back down!” Zayn then walked over to her and grabbed her shoulders.

“Today in the barn was the scariest thing that’s ever happened in my life! You wanna know why? Because you could have been killed Sarah! Jesus you’re not even trained, I don’t care if I have to chain you up you’re not going!”

“Honestly Louis, Scarlet’s been fine all these years I think she can handle herself.” Eleanor spoke softly.

“No she can’t, look I’m going and I’m going with her alone. I’m risking mine and Scarlet’s life I don’t think I could live with myself if any one of you got hurt.” Harry said with concern.

“Honestly I hate to say this, but you guys suck at talking behind my back when clearly I’m standing right here.” I said stepping into the kitchen. I took the centre of the island counter with everyone looking at me.

“This is my note, He is after me. Not anyone else. He will if anyone else shows up, and I will not lose the only family I have left.” I turned to Harry before continuing.

“I will not lose the one I love.” I turned to Louis and the girls. “I will not put the lives of my best friends at risk.” I turned to Niall and Zayn. “And I will not put the lives of my other friends at risk.”

“Scarlet, I think we’ve all decided you’re not going alone. If you won’t let me then all five of us are going to protect you. You said it yourself that you don’t think he knows who we really are, so we will catch him by surprise. I’m not letting a C.I.A agent go into a fricking slaughter house at that ball. I won’t let you.”

Alright I had had enough. I could take care of myself. I have ever since I had no family left. I was so sick of being treated like I was some stupid agent when I wasn’t. The truth had to come out at some point. I guess this meant now.

“I’M NOT A BLOODY C.I.A AGENT HARRY!” I sneered slamming my hands down on the counter.

“I’m an assassin like you. I was there youngest agent until I had enough, I went rogue and trained at my father’s institute. I’ve been on the top for a very long time, your institute might have mentioned that you an another were the top assassins of Europe. Well I’m the other one. Been working on my own for a long time. Been at the top for a long time.”

Everyone went silent and starred at me in disbelief. I stood up straight a fixed my jumper.

“Well that explains a lot. Your skills, you’re hacking, there was no info on you. I knew it, from day one, but I thought no she can’t be, but here you are… wow this explains so much.” Louis stood there in awe.

“I- you- I thought we said no more lies…” Harry couldn’t even look me in the eyes.

But I couldn’t deal with him at the moment so I turned to Bri and Sarah who stood there in pure terror.

“I’m sorry I never told you. I’m sorry I never told you anything, but I had to keep this to myself. I’m sorry.”

Bri blinked a couple of times before she looked me in the eyes. She then grabbed Sarah’s hand and walked over and stood in front of me. She sighed before looking up into my eyes.

“It’s alright- I- I know you probably couldn’t share something like that with us. It’s ok… I guess its part of our lives now though.”

Sarah nodded and they both stepped forward and wrapped their arms around me. Sarah then spoke.

“And I thought I was the badass. Apparently not.” She smirked and Bri and I laughed.

I released them and turned back to look at Harry.

“I’m sorry; this was the one thing I wanted to tell you right away. I wanted to tell you that night, but I never got the chance. I wanted to tell you today while we were riding, but that never happened. I’m sorry Harry, but I have nothing else to hide. “ He didn’t even bring himself to look at me which broke my heart. I couldn’t take this. Not in front of everyone.

“Harry can I speak with you in private please?”

“Yeah whatever.” I walked out of the kitchen and into the study down the hall, I closed the doors behind us and turned to see Harry’s beautiful green eyes turn black.

“How could you? After all the shit we’ve been through? You know I had trust issues… you bloody knew! Yet when I trusted you, you break it! Why scarlet! How did this ever slip your mind! Why didn’t you tell me?” I went to reach out to him but he only took a step back. I lowered my hand and stepped back.

“I’m sorry Harry. I couldn’t at first I decided to keep it a secret so that I would have an upper hand but, then things happened and my plans changed. I chose you and I knew I had to tell you everything, that’s why I brought you up here so I could. I don’t open up to people. I don’t normally share emotions or feelings. I had those all turned off for so long, I forgot how to bloody feel. Then I met you and everything changed. Today in the barn was the first time in a very long time I shut down. I didn’t want it to come out in front of everyone like that, but everyone got on my nerves saying I couldn’t even protect myself, when I’m the same as you Harry. I’ve been on my own for a long time, without a family, without friends, I learned how to fend for myself. Harry were stronger together. All of us. I’m sorry for not telling you sooner but I never even had a chance to explain.” I sighed and looked down at the hard wood flooring.

I heard him walk over to me. He sighed and titled my chin to look up into his eyes. His eyes shifted from black back to a lighter green. No matter how hard one of us tried to hate each other, be angry at one another, we would always forgive each other, with one look into each other’s eyes.

“Please no more lying; is there anything else I should know before we go back to the kitchen?”

“I promise no more, and no that was the only thing left. Harry I’m sorry for breaking your trust.”

“It’s alright, I’m sorry for lashing out. I love you.”

“I love you too.” I leaned up to kiss him. We both pulled back and Harry grabbed my hand and walked us back towards to kitchen.

I looked around to everyone in the kitchen; I took a deep breath before speaking.

“Alright, if we are going to this ball, that is in less than two days, were going to need a plan and were gonna all need to be in this together.” I smirked and stuck out my hand. One by one everyone piled one of their hands on top of mine.

“Ok so here’s what were going to do” I said.
