Chapter 23

Harry’s POV

I gently put scarlet in the car and ran back to go get her heels. I quickly picked them up and was about to run back to the car when I got a bad feeling. I decided to brush it off, I wasn’t going to let some stupid feeling ruin the best night I had since… I quickly shook the thought from my mind, the last thing I needed was to bring up Kali.

I ran back over to the car and climbed in. I handed the shoes over to scarlet. I looked into her eyes and I had forgotten my horrible past. Scarlet was my future and I wasn’t going to let the past stop me from being with her. I started the engine and began to pull out of the parking lot. I held my hand out and she instantly took it.

“I had fun tonight. I was amazing Harry thank-you.”

God her voice always made me smile.

“Me too. I’m glad you liked it.”

I saw scarlet turn around one last time to see the masterpiece I had created. I had to glace at it one last time and tried to figure out what scarlet was looking at. I swear I saw someone standing in the shadows holding a gun. I was about to say something to scarlet when I felt how quickly her hand turned to ice. I let go of her hand and felt if her arm was the same.

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

I decided not to bring up what I thought I saw, because as soon as I looked back up in the mirror no one was there. In all honestly I think I was simply to paranoid theses past days. I shrugged it off; I would just bring it up to Scarlet before we went to bed.

The ride home was quiet. I walked Scarlet into the house and let her shower while I went to go get changed. I came into scarlet’s room to see her already in bed. As soon as I snaked my arm around her, my eyes became heavy. I guess I would just have to wait to tell scarlet in the morning. I closed my eyes and fell into a deep sleep.

I awoke later that night to see scar fussing beside me. She started kicking in screaming, and then started shouting out words.

“Harry…please, please I’m sorry.”

What was she sorry about? I couldn’t take it anymore she was freaking me out.

“SCARLET!” I yelled.

She bottled awake screaming. She looked around and felt her body. She looked over to me as I was sitting upright in our bed staring at her with a concerned look. She looked so stunned; she reached her hand out to me but quickly pulled away. She ran out of bed to the corner on the bed, almost like she wanted to be nowhere near me.

I couldn’t take it; she was scaring the shit out of me. I whipped the covers off and started to walk over to her.

“Scarlet what’s wrong?” I asked hesitantly.

“GET AWAY FROM ME!” I winced at her words.

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

I went to pull her close to me but she only freaked out more and pushed me 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.“

She broke down into tears. I pulled her close to my chest and tried saying soothing words to calm her down, but she only cried out louder. It broke my heart to see her like this. The door burst open and everyone ran into the room. Zayn was holding a dagger and Niall had a gun in his hand.

“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.” I said as softly as I could so I wouldn’t upset Scarlet even more.

Lou then left Eleanor’s side and came over to Scarlet. He knelt down and hugged Scarlet.

“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!” She yelled out and crashed back down against my chest.

“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.”

I looked to Louis with pleading eyes; he managed to look up from Scarlet to meet my gaze.

“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.”

I nodded in agreement. I snaked my hands around Scarlet’s curvy frame and slowly carried her down the stairs. After awhile everyone was now wide awake downstairs in the common room drinking tea. I held Scarlet close to my body and rubbed circles on her upper back to stop her from shaking, although it did not look like it help because her hands continued to shake. What the bloody hell did she have a nightmare about? I was shaken from my thoughts when Scar turned to me with fresh tears in her eyes.

“No… no babe, please don’t cry, I’m here. Everyone is here for you, you’re safe”

She stood up and wiped the tears from her eyes. She then turned back to me and curled up to my 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”

She shifted herself one last time before I slid us down on the sofa. I found her hand and intertwined our fingers. I wrapped my other arm around her waist and pulled her close. I sighed and finally drifted asleep.

As long as Scarlet was with me she would be safe. She was my everything, my true love. I would protect her, even if it meant killing anyone who would get in my way to help her.


Brianna’s POV

We were all sitting in the common room when everyone started to fall back asleep. Scarlet had finally calmed down enough to settle and passed out on Harry. Louis and Eleanor must have been selecting ‘specific pictures’ for the secret thing Louis was making. He even went over and took another picture of Scarlet and Harry before continuing with Eleanor. Liam headed back up to bed and Zayn and Sarah had left to go to the kitchen, but I hadn’t seen them since. Niall and I managed to set up pillows and loads of blankets on the floor. I was just finishing up my tea when I realized the mess of empty mugs. Niall was taking his gun apart and putting it back together and aiming at nothing. I pulled myself up and started collecting the empty mugs. Niall raised a brow at me

“Babe what are you doing?” Man I could never get over how thick his Irish accent was.

“It’s a mess, I’m just gonna take the mugs to the kitchen. I will be right back ok?” I smiled and he nodded in response.

I grabbed as many mugs as I could and made my way over to the kitchen. I made sure to keep my eyes focused on all the glasses so that I wouldn’t drop them. I  was thinking about where Sarah and Zayn might have ran off to and thought they were probably in bed. I flicked on the kitchen light.

I screamed when I saw Sarah sitting on the counter with her legs wrapped around Zayn lip locking in the damn kitchen.

“What the bloody hell! Oh my God SARAH! Jesus Christ who the hell kisses in the dark! In a fricking kitchen I might add!” I stood there and slammed the mugs down on the counter.

They quickly broke their kiss and Sarah burst into a fit and laughed on Zayn’s shoulder. Zayn chuckled and picked Sarah off the counter. She kept her legs wrapped around his waist and snuggled into the crook of his neck.

“Sorry” she mumbled.

“My bad” Zayn said apologetically

He whispered to Sarah as they were walking out of the kitchen

“Guess we can finish this upstairs” she only laughed harder

“Zayn you need to work on your whispering skills because I just heard everything you just said!”

He shrugged and carried Sarah out of the room. I mentally face palmed myself, this was what? The second time I had walking in with them snogging, God I really needed to start announcing my entrance when I walked into a room. I laughed at the thought of it. I walked back into the common room and Saw Niall curled up on our make shift bed for the night. I ran over and climbed in. He opened his eyes and wrapped his arms around me. I buried my face in his chest.

“Night Babe” He mumbled


With that he kissed the top of my forehead and rested his chin on the top of my head. Soon I drifted back into a peaceful sleep with Niall cradling me in his arms.


Louis POV

El and I were sitting on the arm chair looking through all the photo’s I had taken of everyone. They only people who had no clue what I was doing were Scar and Hazza. The other thought it was only for Scarlet and Haz but they were so wrong. I had taken pictures of Zayn and Sarah, Niall and Bri, Liam and Danielle and even some of me and El. It was pretty sad that no one had caught me so far taking embarrassing photo’s or one likes Scarlet and Harry. I swear they should just give me the title of being a Ninja I was that smooth.

“I still can’t believe you were able to get a picture of Scarlet and Harry, I would have thought she’d make me delete the photo by now.” I smirked at Eleanor who raised a brow at me. She soon caught on a gasped. “Louis! She doesn’t know you sent it to me does she?!”

“Nope! But you can’t tell her! Not until everything is finished! I just need one more picture of Haz and her. I’m going to get it at the ball when they dance! And you promised me you wouldn’t say a word!” she sighed and met my gaze. She threw her hands up in defense

“Alright! Alight! Fine I promise I won’t say a word, but when she finds out I’m blaming you.”

I burst into a fit and soon Eleanor did too. I covered her mouth to stop her from laughing; if she laughed any louder she would probably wake up the entire house. She grabbed my hand and slide it off her mouth. She still held onto my hand in her lap. I couldn’t help but smile when I would look at Eleanor. She caught me staring.

“What are you staring at?”

“Nothing... You just have a beautiful laugh and smile” I stuttered. God Lou you’re acting like a complete idiot! I was so focused on my thoughts I forgot El spoke.

“Huh? What sorry” She laughed softly.

“I said thank you!”

“Oh well its true love.”

She blushed and turned her gaze to the clock on wall.

“Oh my gosh it’s 4am! We should really go to asleep!”

 I laughed and stood up. I turned around and extended my hand out for Eleanor to grab. She quickly accepted and I hadn’t let go of my hand, since scarlet took over the spare, El had to stay with me for the past couple of nights. We climbed into bed and before I could think things through, I kissed the top of Eleanor’s head. She stared in my eyes and then curled into my chest.

“G-Goodnight love.” I said softly.

“Night Lou"

In all my life I had never been so happy. I didn’t know why Eleanor had this effect on me But I was happy that she did.

END Louis’ POV


Scarlet’s POV

I opened my eyes the next morning only to find out my body was entangled with something very heavy. I looked over to see Harry curled up on the sofa beside me. I looked over to see Harry curled up on the sofa beside me. I quickly untangled myself and looked around the room. Bri and Niall were sleeping on the floor and Harry re adjusted himself on the sofa. I left the common room and ran over to the kitchen. There sat Sarah with a high messy bun.

Oh my God. High messy bun… she had her hair in a messy bun. That only happened when she… She didn’t!

I stood there wide-eyed as Sarah looked up from the newspaper. She smiled but as soon as she saw my face she sprinted towards me.

“You didn’t!” I yelled out excitingly to her. She covered my mouth with her hand.

“Don’t you dare say anything! I did it and it was fricking glorious!”

I burst out into a fit and she yelled out in frustration. “Don’t even try and come at me with your sarcasm, nothing can bring me down, I am to happy to slap you, so I have no regrets.” She went back over and sipped her coffee and I sat down to the opposite of her.

“Too happy or to sore?” I smirked and Sarah almost spit out her coffee.

“I still can’t believe you guys did it.” She laughed and leaned in. “I did it and I have not a single regret!”

I laughed with Sarah

“So he was that good eh?”

“Oh you don’t even want to get me started!” she smirked and with that Zayn walked in with his hair unusually messy and his bare back had massive red marks running down them, he was about to sip his coffee when I spoke.

“Sarah! He must have been good, because his back looks like a cat attacked it!” I burst out into a fit with Sarah while Zayn spit out all his coffee. He wiped his mouth with the back of his hand and looked at us wide-eyed


“No, she could tell with my hair as soon as she saw me! Plus you sir forgot to put a shirt on!”

He looked down at himself to see he really wasn’t wearing a shirt. He smiled and quickly excused himself. I burst into another fit with Sarah before I got up to make myself a coffee. I was about to take a sip when a hand snaked around my waist and took my coffee to take the first sip. His curls brushed the side of my face as he rested his hand on my shoulder.

“Morning.” He said in a raspy tone

“Morning to you too.” I said grabbing my mug out of his hand and went to sit back down with Sarah.

Harry followed me and instead of sitting beside me he decided to sit on top of me while I tried to talk with Sarah.

“Harry you are crushing my legs” I said kindly before shoving him off. He only chuckled and got back up to make himself a coffee.

“So how are you babe? “ Sarah asked.

“I’m fine, just a bit shaken up I guess. I think I’m just over thinking things”

I didn’t want to tell Sarah that the nightmare I had scared the fricking life out of me. I didn’t want to freak Sarah out and the rest of gang if I told them what happened, so I left it at that. Harry came to join us back at the table. Liam came in next looking like he had just come in from jogging.


We all mumbled a response and that’s when Louis and Eleanor came walking in.

“GOOOOD MORNING!” Louis screamed at the top of his lungs. Eleanor giggled while Louis walked over to me.

“How yeah feeling babe? All better?”

“Yes Lou I fine, Thank-you”

“Good to hear!” Eleanor came in and handed a mug to Louis.
All of the sudden we heard Bri faintly in the hallway

“Ni come back! He- he was only- joking! It’s not- that bad! I’m sure it will come off!”

Louis burst out into laughter and turned to the rest of us.

“Wait, three…two…one” as if on que Niall ran in with Bri shortly running in behind him. I couldn’t hold it in as soon as I saw Niall’s face I realized what Louis had gotten himself into this time. He had drawn on in black sharpie a French mustache under Niall’s nose, and drew circles around his eyes to make him look like he had glasses on.

Everyone exploded into one huge fit of laughter.

“Oh my God! Niall this really has to be my best drawing yet!” Louis beamed.

“You’re so dead Louis! Watch your back!” Niall sneered. Bri hit him lightly and his expression softened. She went over to the sink and got a towel and soap and started to clean the mess off of Niall’s face. Zayn came back into the room with his hair styled and clean shirt.

“What did I miss?” He asked, but Sarah only burst out in another fit

“You should- have seen- Niall’s- FACE!” She tried to say. Zayn started to laugh and then walked over to look at Niall.

“Jesus man, Louis got you good.”

“Yeah whatever, he’s next.” Niall mumbled.

After everyone had calmed down we were all sitting at the table when Harry spoke out.

“I don’t want to alarm anyone, but um last night when we were pulling out of the lot… I swear I saw someone in the shadows holding a gun, but that’s crazy right? Am I just being paranoid?”

I grew wide-eyed. He had seen it too. It wasn’t just me, I know what I saw and Harry just confirmed it. Everyone looked to me and saw my reaction.

“I’m paranoid right? Scarlet please don’t tell me… You saw it to didn’t you!”

I swallowed down the last of my coffee and looked at everyone’s gaze.

“I-uh… I mean I thought I saw someone last night in the shadows… Harry I thought I was just paranoid that’s why I didn’t say anything last night… and… never mind” I quickly stopped myself before I could bring up the note that was still in my shoes.

“Never mind what? Scarlet what happened?” I sighed I knew I wouldn’t win this fight. I caved in.

“There was a note stuck in my heels last night after you gave them to me… it said something like hope to see you at the ball, come alone, and I’m sure you wouldn’t want your new boyfriend or your new friends dead. I have people everywhere. Something on the lines of that”

“You’re joking me right?” Harry spoke in disbelief.

“No I’m serious.”

He was fuming now.

“Did it ever occur to you Scarlet to maybe; oh I don’t know bring it up! Or to fricking tell me there was a note stuck inside your shoe or that you saw a man last night!?”

“I didn’t tell you because I knew you would react like this!” I said raising my voice.

“Act like what? All I’m trying to do is keep you safe Scarlet!”

“I get that Harry I do, but I’m not a child, I am not C.I.A, I am a bloody assassin, if he would have hurt already but he hasn’t”

“Yes but you are my girlfriend! I have every right to keep you safe” He said sharply.

I sighed before meeting his gaze. “I’m sorry alright? But it’s not like we could have done anything ok!” I huffed.

“Alright, just next time please just tell me”

“Fine” I turned to Eleanor Bri and Sarah.

“We need to do training today.” I turned to Liam. “Can you call Danielle and see if she can’t come over the more knowledge she has the better.”

“Really! Are we assigned partners?” Bri said.

“Um everyone can start off in pairs and I guess we can just rotate around the training room so you guys can have some practice.”

After everyone finished up with their coffee and breakfast, we all returned to the common room. Zayn was teaching Sarah how to throw knives, Niall took Bri into the shooting range, El and Louis were sitting on a mat looking over blue prints, Danielle was getting a lecture from Liam about weapons, and Harry and I were stuck on combat training. I was stretching out my legs when Harry came over and pinched my sides causing me to lose my balance and fall on the mat.

“What was that for?” I huffed

Harry turned to me and chuckled

“Huh? Me! I didn’t do anything, I was simply over here looking at weapons” he smirked. I did a back round of from the ground and stood at the centre of the mat.

“Wasn’t you? Hmm alright then. Don’t grab any weapons; I just want to do one on one with you today.”

“You really think that’s a good idea? No offense Red but no one beats me in one on one”

“I was holding back on you the first time. So if you still think you can beat me, let’s give it a go yeah?”

“My pleasure!” He stalked towards me.

We both took our starting stances on the mat. I turned to Louis.

“Hey Louis mind counting us down?”

“OK! Players take your stances! One my go you both fight! I want a clean and fair fight, which I doubt is going to happen but anyways…. Three… Two… One… Go!”

Harry sprinted towards me and I ducked down just in time. He spun around and I wiped out my leg and knocked him flat on the mat. He threw his hands back and flipped himself back up. I ran and hide behind a pillar. I sensed Harry coming up on my right, I punched him in the gut before he could grab me and he doubled over, I was walking back and was surprised when Harry bear hugged me. He spun me around and my feet were touching the pillar. I used to my advantage and ran my legs up the wall and pushed off as hard as I could. I flipped myself and Harry. He landed hard on his back and I had both my legs placed on either side of his waist. He opened his eyes and winked at me. Before I knew it he grabbed my ankles and flipped me up so that now my back slammed hard against the mat. Harry crawled onto of me and pinned my hands onto of my head, He was sitting on my hips, but I still had control of my legs. I thrusted my hips up and flipped us over, I ran out of Harry’s grasp and flipped him over so that he was on his stomach. I grabbed both of his hands and held them with my legs at his sides, I then grabbed each of his legs and I hooked them through my arms. Harry was a sitting duck. Literally. There was no way to escape out of this position unless I released.

I hadn’t noticed until now the girls were cheering me on, while Zayn and Niall egged on Harry, even though Harry was in no position to try anything. I slid down and whispered in his ear as he struggled under my grasp.

“I believe I have one, do you give up?” I smirked. “Harry mate, she’s got you in a hold, you’re done for bud.” Liam spoke and I laughed.

Harry sighed in frustration before he stopped struggling.

“Yes fine, I give up for now!” I burst out into another fit and released Harry from my death grip.

“Well does everyone have the basics down?” Sarah smirked at Zayn and nodded at me, and the rest nodded in agreement.

“Alright what time is it Harry?”

“Almost 7pm”

I looked at him in disbelief. Had we really trained for that long?

“Wow alright, I need to have the girls come up to my room, and they need to select the gear they will be taking, I also have a few extra things to give em.”

“Alright the lads and I are just gonna cook some dinner then” all the boys moaned in response.

I kissed Harry on the Lips and walked up stairs with the girls to finally finish our outfits.


We had one day.

One day until we would go to the ball.

One day until all hell would possibly break loose.

One day until I would meet the man who wanted me dead.
