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?


22. Chapter 22

Chapter 22

I was still shocked. I couldn’t believe Harry had set all of this up. He brought me to the park down around the docs. He set up multiple blankets and pillows on the grass. They were placed right in the centre of four large oak trees that were all connected with lights hanging from them. Harry also had bought roses and laid them on the grass to create a pathway leading up to the spot under the trees. There was food already out and I swear I could faintly hear music.

He grabbed my hand and walked me down the rose path and as we got closer I could hear the music more clearly. He actually managed to set up a wireless sound system.

“Y-you managed to set all of this up in two hours?” I turned to him in disbelief and he chuckled.

“Yeah, like I said Lou helped me out so I could have all of this ready for 7.”

We both sat down and ate the pasta that had been made.

“Wow Harry this is really good, I hope you didn’t go through a lot to set this up.” I blushed and looked out towards the docs.

“Thanks I cooked the pasta, and not that much, but your worth it love.”

After we ate Harry cleared away everything. This date continued to surprise me. I laid down on my back and looked up into the sky. You could see so many stars it was amazing. Harry came over and laid beside me. He grabbed his hand and turned my hand to look at him. He smiled but still looked up at the stars.

“I know you’re staring at me.” I laughed and his smile grew bigger.

“I can’t help it, I feel like I’m stuck in a daydream. Tonight has been incredible. Thank-you.” He turned to me and looked into my eyes.

“I’m glad you liked it.” He leaned in and kissed me. I quickly pulled away before things could get heated.

“Why’d you do that?” I looked over at one of the large oak trees. Soon an idea popped into my head and I quickly ripped my heels off. Harry sat up and looked at me with a confused face.

I sprinted towards the trees before Harry could catch me. I jumped up and swung myself up onto the lowest branch. I jumped onto the next branch when Harry called out.

“Red? What the hell are you doing in a tree?”

He ran over the trunk of the tree and looked up at me.

“I always used to climb trees as a kid and practice my balancing skills when I wasn’t in the gym for gymnastics.”

“Scar… could you come down, your gonna fall.” He yelled up. I decided to use this to my advantage and play a prank on Harry. I jumped up higher until I was up pretty high in the tree.

“Harry do you doubt my skills?” I giggled.

“No! I just doubt the branch holding you up.” I pretended to act shocked by his comment so I gasped.

“Are you calling me fat Harry?!”

“No! No I- I swear- that’s not what I-“I cut him off. “What did you mean then Harry?” I smirked.

“I meant the branch looks weak!”

“This branch is perfectly safe. Look watch!”

I started jumping on the branch. On the third time I jumped up I faked it so it looked like I was falling. Harry instantly ran to catch my fall but saw I was having a fit up in the tree.

“That’s wasn’t funny!”

“Oh yes it was!” I yelled it up.

I jumped down off the branch and started to climb down. I reached the bottom branch and swung my legs over and flipped myself backwards so I was hanging by my legs and looked at Harry. He pouted his lips and crossed his arms over his chest.

“Aw is Mr. Grumpy pants still angry with my stunt?” I mimicked his actions and batted my eyelashes and then smiled. He rolled his eyes and sighed. He walked closer to me.

“Why is it I can’t stand mad at you?”

“Because I’m fabulous and everyone loves me.” I said happily.

“God you sound just like Louis! I swear you have been around him to long! He is starting to influence you.” I burst out into a fit and Harry started to laugh as well. We died down and Harry took another step closer. I wrapped my hands around his neck.

“Even when your hanging upside down you still manage to look good.” He smirked.

“It takes years of practice.”

I looked into his eyes. My heart skipped a beat; I could feel my skin getting warm. I bit my bottom lip but kept eye contact with him. He guided his tongue across his bottom lips. He leaned in closer. I couldn’t stand it anymore I pulled him in and kissed him passionately. I ran my fingers through his curls and pulled him closer. I didn’t think we could get closer but somehow we managed.

His tongue glided along my bottom lip asking for entrance. I quickly accepted and Harry and I battled for dominance. I gave in and let him win this round. He cupped my cheeks to pull me even closer. I swear this was the best upside down kiss I had ever had. He was about to pull me down from the branch when he whipped his head around breaking the kiss.

He must have heard a sound that I was completely oblivious about. There was another sound only this time I had heard it as well. I swung myself upright and jumped down landing in a crouched position in front of Harry. He grabbed my arm and pulled me up. He held me close but his eyes never left the shadows.

“Haz what is it?”

“Shh. I have no idea. Red I have a bad feeling…”

He then looked into my eyes for a brief moment.

“Are you trying to scare me Harry? Cause it’s so not working. It takes a lot more than something hiding in the shadows to scare me.”

He furrowed his brows together and pulled me behind the tree and pressed my back up against the trunk. He looked at me with a concerned face until there was another sound. Harry peaked round the side of the tree and his jaw dropped.

“Harry? What the heck is going on? Talk to me!”

His expression went from shocked to fuming in a matter of seconds. He clenched his fist and yelled.


Harry took off and sprinted around the tree. I turned and looked to see Louis backing up holding his phone in his hand. Harry was full out sprinting towards him



Louis then booked it and full out deaked Harry around a tree and Louis was now sprinting towards me with a panicked look on his face.


He quickly reached me and hid behind me like when a little kid hides behind their mum when there scarred. Harry was still sprinting towards Louis. I quickly put one hand across Louis chest and my other hand out in front of me to stop Harry in his tracks. He was fuming when he reached me. He was about to take another step when Louis gripped my shoulders tighter and I grabbed a hand full of Harry’s T-shirt.

“Harry that’s enough!”

“You’ve got to be joking me scarlet!” I started to get heated.

“No Harry actually I’m not! Back off and calm the hell down or I will break your nose and knock you out!” I glared into his eyes and he stepped back and flew his arms in the air in frustration and stormed off.

I screamed out in annoyance and turned back to look at Louis.

“What the bloody hell are you doing here!?”

“I know it looks bad scar but honest it’s for something…”

“Were you… were you taking pictures of us!?”

“Well the girls wanted to see where Haz took you out and I told them what we did and the girls wanted to see what it looked like so I came back to take a pic but then I saw you two and I took the picture of you two. I was gonna use it for something. “

I sighed and looked back up into his eyes.

“Fine, let’s go find Harry. Oh and you’re going to delete the photo of us off your phone so Harry isn’t upset.”

“Awe seriously?”

“Yup it’s only fair, sorry love”

He sighed before pulling out his phone and quickly typed away. He then looked at me and smiled.

“What did you just do?” I raised a brow at him. “Nothing I just sent El a text saying I got caught. That’s all.” He smirked and reluctantly handed over his phone

“I don’t know what you’re up to Louis but that wasn’t nothing.” I laughed and grabbed his phone. “Come on let’s go find Harry.”

We walked along the beach and saw Harry standing by the docs.

“Harry I have his phone, you can delete the picture of us, Here love.” I tossed the phone just as he turned around to face m. He caught it quickly and unlocked the phone. He then walked over to me and placed a hand around my waist and deleted the photo. He smiled back at Louis, and tossed his phone back to him.

“So we ok?”

“Yeah we're perfect.”

He walked over to Louis and was about to give him a hug when he moved his hands at the last second and hit Louis upside of his head. Louis stumbled back and dropped his phone. It flew out of his hands and plunked into the water. The screen started to flash before it went dark and sunk to the bottom.

I burst out into a fit and Louis stood there gob-smacked. Harry burst out into laughter as well.

Louis then threw his hands and pointed to the water.

“Oh come on Harry!"

“Sorry mate, But now all is forgiven. Hoped you learned your lesson” Harry reached out and grabbed my hand and I gladly accepted it. I turned back to Louis who looked dramatically upset about his phone.

“Oh come on Lou, there’s nothing you can do about it.”

“Ohh yess I can!” He smirked and ran towards Harry and pushed him. He lost his balance and fell back into the water. Sadly he still had hold of my hand and I went down with him.

We crashed into the water and I swam up to the surface. Louis was on the ground laughing so hard. I turned to look at Harry and realized Harry had a piece of Seaweed on top of his head. I burst out into laughter. He then walked towards me and pushed me back down underwater.

I swam up gasping for air. I wiped the water out of my eyes and looked at Harry who was doubled over and was laughing as well. I stuck my hand under and gripped his ankle. He face instantly turned to scared.

“Red… don’t… Don’t you even-“I never let him finish.

I pulled his ankle up and Harry flew back into the water because he lost his balance.

I ran out of the water before harry could get his revenge and I ran to Louis. I grabbed his hand and I looked to Harry who had now come to the surface


Louis and I sprinted with me and Harry wasn’t far behind. Louis managed to get ahead of me and yelled from in front.


He let go of my hand and sprinted towards his car. I stopped and stood there in pure shock as Louis winked and climbed into his car and drove off. I guess Harry must had caught up to me because he swept me off my feet and carried me bridal style.

“Ahh Harry! Put me down!” I started playfully pounding my hands against his chest.

“Aha yeah right! Nice try love, But that’s not happening. I caught you fair and square. I’m claiming my prize. It’s as simple at that.” He smirked and kissed the top of my head.

I guess I couldn’t complain. He carried me all the way up to the car and without letting my feet touch the ground. He gently put me in the car. He then shut the door and ran back to grab my heels.

He climbed back into the car and handed me my shoes. He started the car and held his hand out. I took it instantly and looked over at him

“I had fun tonight. It was amazing Harry thank-you” He smiled and replied. “Me too, I’m glad you liked it.”

He pulled out of the lot and I looked behind me to see the place one last time. It looked absolutely perfect. I was about to turn back around and face the front when my eyes caught the slight of something I didn’t expect.

There standing in the shadows where Louis was moments ago was a figure of a person holding a handgun in his hand. I whipped around to the front and sat there frozen in terror. I hadn’t realized my hands shaking when Harry let go and placed a hand on my arm.

“Jesus Scarlet your freezing. Was the water that cold? You’re shaking like crazy. Look we will be home soon alright love?”

I nodded slowly. I knew I couldn’t tell Harry. He would have lost it if he found out we were actually being watched. I quickly looked down at my heels in my lap and saw something stuck in my left shoe. I quickly pulled out the note and read it so harry couldn’t see.


I hope to see you at the ball on the 21st. Remember to come alone. I’m sure you wouldn’t want your boyfriend or your new friends dead. Remember I have people everywhere.

Sleep tight Scarlet. Xx

We drove back in silence. Harry walked me into the house and let me shower while he got changed out of his wet clothes. I walked out and climbed into my bed. Harry came in moments later. He snaked his hand around my waist and soon fell asleep. I slowly drifted asleep but found myself in a nightmare.

I was in my dress I was going to wear to the ball. It was stained crimson and I had blood on my hands. I looked around the room to see guns to Bri and Sarah’s heads. They were both crying and Niall got shoved down to the ground. He looked at Bri and mumbled at her which made her cry even more. The masked man put a gun up to his hand and shot. Bri screamed out and collapse the the ground reaching out for Niall’s hand. They grabbed her just as she laid a finger on Niall. I looked around the room to see Liam dead beside Niall.

Louis and Harry were on the ground tied up with gags around there mouths. Zayn was trying to hide Sarah from the boys that lied dead on the floor. The pulled Bri up next. She turned to me and he held up the gun next to her head. Someone then pulled me up and walked me over to this masked man and Brianna. He laughed and handed me the gun, he held his hand so I couldn’t let go of the gun. He slid my finger into the trigger spot. I cried out and tried to fight.

“No! Stop it! I won’t kill her! Stop it please! Just let them go, you have me please just stop!”

But he only laughed.

“Oh but Scarlet this is more fun! Now beg for your life! for Scarlet love!”

He turned Bri’s head towards me. Bri let the tears fall from her face and shook her head.

“Never.” She mumbled. Another man stepped forward and punched her in the gut. She doubled over in pain and started screaming.

“Stop please! It hurts.” Bri cried out. The man bent down and spoke.

“Then beg for your life, beg Scarlet not to kill you.” She looked at me once more. I knew she couldn’t take it anymore.

“Scar-Scarlet... Please help me...” I couldn’t take it I didn’t want any of this I tried fighting but the masked man stood up and slid his finger over mine.

“Well there you go Scarlet, it’s your turn.” I didn’t even have time to say sorry he positioned the gun to her head and pressed my finger down on the trigger. I screamed out in pain. I dropped to the floor and broke down. I couldn’t believe I was forced to kill my best friend. Sarah screamed out and tried to shake Bri but she was motionless. I couldn’t take the pain. I was a cold blooded killer.

They had made me kill each and every one of my so called family that I had left. They made me kill Zayn and Sarah next. I had lost it. I couldn’t even stand anymore they had to keep picking me up and placing my hand in a gun. It was horrible, the cold laugh every time I had to press the trigger. Finally Louis and Harry were next. They pulled Louis up and he looked up to me

“Last words, before lovely Scarlet kills you?” Louis spit of the side and glared at the man.

“Scarlet, How could you. You’re a fighter, what happened? You just murdered your best friends. You… you murdered my mates… and now you’re going to kill me and Harry. I hate you Scarlet. I will never forgive you! So go ahead get it over with, I have nothing to live for anymore.”

His words broke my heart, why did Louis say this to me? Why did this whole thing feel so real? I cried out

“Louis… please... I’m sorry… Please don’t say that!”

He looked into my eyes before responding.

“This is what you wanted all along. Now you got your wish, so just do it”

The masked man slid his finger over mine and pressed my finger down on the trigger and Louis stumbled back on the ground. I cried out to Louis. I couldn’t take this. They had stripped down my walls. I sobbed out calling Louis names. I couldn’t handle it. Someone punched me in the gut and I screamed out in pain. The pulled I up and the masked man brought his hand up to my face. He slapped me hard and more tears fell from my eyes.

“You brought this on yourself. I gave to clear rules Scarlet, but you just couldn’t listen. You have no one to blame but yourself.”

I turned to Harry who had been crying.

“Alright lad, any last words before your lovely girlfriend rips out your heart?”

He looked down at the ground at all the dead bodies, before meeting my gaze.

“You… Scarlet I … I have nothing to say to you. Just do it.”

“Harry please, please I’m sorry.”

“I hate you.”

Those three words ripped my heart. That was it. I didn’t have anyone left. Harry was my last hope and now even he hated me. The masked man brought the gun up to Harry’s face and I looked away and he pressed my finger down on the trigger. The shot was so loud.

I awoke from my nightmare screaming.

“SCARLET!” Harry screamed at me.

I looked around, and felt my body. I wasn’t bruised, or bloody, but I was covered in sweat. I looked over to Harry and saw him sitting upright in bed looking at me.

I was reaching out my hand but I quickly pulled away and ran out of the bed to the far corner on the bed away from Harry as far as possible. He quickly threw the covers off of him and started walking towards me.

“Scarlet what’s wrong?”


“Scarlet please you’re scaring me? What happened did you have a nightmare? Love it wasn’t real.”

I screamed and pushed him away.

“You don’t get it! I-there were bodies everywhere. My dress… I was covered in blood. I was covered in everyone’s blood…I-I had to kill everyone… He forced me Harry… He made me kill all of you- Harry He made me watch as I killed each of you- Harry everyone hated me…. You… you said you hate me. HARRY I’M A MONSTER- It was real… it felt so real.“ I broke down into tears as Harry pulled me close to his chest.

He was trying to calm me down but I only cried out louder. At this point everyone burst into my room.

“What happened?” Liam spoke.

“I have no idea; she keeps talking about blood, and dead bodies. I think she had a nightmare of what happened to all of us.” Harry spoke softy

Louis walked over to me and hugged me with Harry.

“Scarlet it was just a nightmare, look were all here, were all safe, you didn’t do anything babe.”

“Louis- y-you… don’t understand… You guys…said you hated me… you broke my heart... You were so bitter… it’s all my f-fault… it’s all my fault!” I screamed which only brought on more tears. I was shaking so bad in Harry’s arms. “Scarlet it’s not your fault it was just a dream, none of us would ever blame you for anything, and you’ve done nothing wrong.”

“Louis what should we do? I’m not making her fall back asleep. Not after what just happened.”

“I think we should just take her down to the common room and make her some tea to calm her down.”

Harry slowly picked me up off the floor and carried me down the stairs. After 10 minutes everyone was downstairs in the common room drinking tea. Harry was rubbing soothing circles on my upper back to stop me from shaking, but I still continued to shake. I looked over to Harry with fresh tears forming in my eyes. He looked at me and saw.

“No… no babe please don’t cry, I’m here. Everyone is here for you, you’re safe.” I stood up and wiped the tears from my eyes. I turned back to Harry and curled back up to his body.

“Scarlet just close your eyes, you need to calm down and allow yourself to let your mind go blank, I promise we will all be here when you wake up, just close your eyes.”

I didn’t bother to put up a fight. I soon allowed my mind to go blank and I soon fell asleep in Harry’s arms.
