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 25

Brianna’s POV

“Guys I don’t think he is the only one who recognizes someone here tonight… I think I just saw Jack” Niall mumbled.

“Who the hell is Jack?” I responded.

“She… Um she was an ex of mine…” Niall spoke to me hesitantly.

Great. I knew I wasn’t Niall’s first but Niall couldn’t even bloody hold me gaze. Whoever this girl was, something happened between them which only made me even more paranoid. I mean was she pretty? Did she hurt Niall? I had all these thoughts running through my mind when my body betrayed me and I pulled out my ear piece to speak with Niall in private.

“So who exactly is Jack? I mean it’s not like I care… But I mean is she bad? Or good? I promise I won’t get mad at you Niall I just wanna know what went down between you two, surely it wasn’t nothing. Was it something bad?”

I went to spin around to talk to Niall but he was nowhere to be seen. You had to be kidding me. I put my ear piece back in. Honestly how the hell did I manage to lose him he was just standing beside me! Great this was just fricking fantastic.

“Guys I can’t find Niall!” I sneered.

“Liam where’s Jack?” Scarlet asked hesitantly.

“I… We have no idea, none of them are on any of our monitors.” Danielle spoke.

“Niall? Mate answer.” Harry spoke nervously.

“Guys his ear piece is off. He either took it off or someone took it.” Louis said.

“You’ve got to be fucking kidding me right now. Sarah and Zayn do not split up. I have no idea where Niall is but I have a feeling he didn’t go willingly.”

I swore under my breath. Great the last thing we needed was all of us getting distracted. I started to look around and noticed a trail of broken cookies. I prayed to God this was Niall’s doing.

I opened my clutch and carefully pulled out my gun. I walked down a long corridor. I heard movement coming from one of the rooms. I then heard something shatter on the ground and I sprinted towards the noise. At this point Niall was my only focus

The voices became louder until I finally heard another Irish accent. However it wasn’t Niall’s it was a female voice.

“You think you can just forget about me Niall? It’s been 4 months and the best you can do is replacing me with a stupid blonde at that? That’s pretty damn sad Niall I thought you were better than that.”

She paused for a moment before she let out a bitter laugh.

“Oh Niall you’ve fallen in love with her. Poor girl, But then again she doesn’t look like she has that much potential in life anyways. So I’m sure once you’re out of the picture I guess I will just be doing her a favor.”

“Just shut it.  A lot has changed over these past months. She’s not like that. She’s different unlike you who is a bloody liar and a cheat.”

“Unlike me? I was the best damn thing you had. How long is it going to take until you realize the truth? She is a weak, pathetic girl who doesn’t know what she signed up for. I however do.  How long will it take Niall until you snap again and turn into a monster? I know I’ve seen it firsthand. How long until she is going to be on the receiving end? How long until you can’t control yourself Niall and turn into a monster while she becomes your personal punching bag? At least with me you know I can defend myself… But this skinny little girl I bet can’t even defend herself.”

Punching bag? I knew the words all too well. No one knew the real reason why I left my family… or more so ran. My parents were always so kind, until things went bad. The fights… the familiar smell of alcohol… the constant arguments… the bruises… the pain. I quickly shook my horrible memories from my mind. I promised myself I would never get involved with something like that again… but why did I now have a bad feeling about Niall?

“I said enough. I have changed. She’s changed me. I would never hurt her.”

Jack laughed again.

“What happens when she disagrees with something you want her to do? What happens when she wants something and you disagree with her? You aren’t just going to let her get away with it are you Niall? You have to show her who’s boss. You have to take leadership Niall; you can’t be second in command.”

Niall raised his voice.

“Enough! Get out of my head! You’ve done this to me!“

“Oh I have done nothing. I’m the only one Niall that can keep you under control, if you think this new bird can do it your wrong. It’s your choice Niall me, or I kill her and then I guess were both out of luck.”

I couldn’t believe it. Was Jack really talking about what I thought? I was appalled. Could Niall really be…?

That’s when I heard the click of the trigger. She must have had a gun to Niall’s head. She was about to shoot him if I didn’t go in now. I took a deep breath and burst the door open. I threw my gun up and pressed it hard against what I thought to be Jack’s head. She froze and Niall starred at me wide-eyed.

“Drop the gun.” I sneered.

Jack only laughed and turned her so she kept the gun on Niall’s temple and her body aimed at me.

“Now why would I do that? You shoot me, I kill him. I guess it’s a win- win. Oh and I haven’t formally introduced myself, but I assume you have already heard from the rest of the gang of who I am. I would say you’re pretty damn brave holding a gun up to an assassin hun or pretty damn stupid.”

She saw my shocked facial expression and laughed.

“Oh so you don’t know. I bet you are probably terrified now. So I suggest you throw the gun away, or I will get rid of it for you.”

I held my ground and she laughed.

“I can see why you chose her Niall, You think she’s tough, but I will see just how tough she is.”

She shoved Niall to the ground and went to attack me. I quickly dove out of the way. She grabbed my hair and pulled me back to her. I screamed out and Niall shouted

“Let her go!”

“Not a chance babe, one more step and say bye bye to your new birdie.”

I slowly pulled out the pocket knife out of my clutch and flicked out the knife. I closed my eyes and slowed my breath.

“Any last words babe before you die?”

I simply whispered.

“Yeah… I’m so sorry.”

She must have seemed shocked by my answer. Before she could respond I swung my arm and felt the blade go through. She gasped and released her death grip on me. I stumbled forward and fell on my hands and knees

I turned my head to see Jack fall to her knees. Her hand gripped something on the side of her neck. She pulled out the silver object and let it roll off her finger tips and she crashed towards the ground. The silver object rolled towards me and I realized it was the pocket knife I had in my hands moments ago. Realization hit me. I had just murdered a person. I had just killed a person. I guess I went into shock and started to shake. I grabbed onto the table I was by and barley got myself to stand. Niall ran to me and tried to help me.

“Babe, you did what you had to do. It’s not your fault she would have killed you.”

 I put a hand to my mouth and realized it was spattered in crimson. I looked at Niall and shook my head back in forth. When he tried to pull me into a hug. I screamed out and pushed him away.

“NO! GET AWAY FROM ME!”

“Babe I’m trying to help. Please I promise I’m not going to hurt you.”

Before I could stop myself I spoke.

“That’s what they always said. They lied. Y-you… Don’t touch me…I swear to God Niall don’t touch me.”

His eyes with both concern and rage, He took a step closer but I took a step back and hugged my chest.

“H-how much did you hear?”

“I heard enough. Y-you… I thought you were… but you’re not… You’re just like… Get away from me right now.”

“Brianna… Enough.” His eyes changed from the light blue I loved to a dark blue I had never seen before.

“No! You don’t get to tell me what to do! I said get the hell away from me Niall!”

He went to grab me but I screamed out in horror. I crumpled to the ground and held my hands over to protect my head.

I heard to door burst open again and heard heavy footsteps.

“I think she said to stay away from her mate!”

“Who the hell are you to tell me what to do? She’s my girlfriend you idiot!”

“Really because it looks like to me, she is more afraid of you.”

I turned my head up slowly to see a tall blonde with hazel eyes. He had himself placed between myself and Niall. I didn’t know why he was here but I was glad he had come. I hadn’t noticed until now I had tears streaming down my face. I wiped them with the back of my hand and slowly stood. Niall went to approach me again when this time the guy placed his hand on Niall’s chest and shoved him back.

“Not happening mate. I think you’re going to make things worse.”

“Get out of my bloody way. She’s not yours to bloody deal with!”

Niall shoved his way past the guy who was standing between us and grabbed a hold of my wrist. He started to drag me out of the room. I screamed out, all the memories came flooding back to me. I tried to get out of Niall’s grasp but his hand only gripped tighter. I didn’t want this. I didn’t know what happened to Niall, but this wasn’t the man I thought I fell in love with. I lifted my left hand and dug my nails down deep into his skin. He turned around and his face was stricken with anger he was about to raise his hand, when the blonde guy punched him clean out and Niall fell to the floor unconscious.

I fell to the floor and curled my legs up to my chest. The guy came over and slowly grabbed my hands and pulled them away from my hands. He gave me a small smile and slowly helped me up from the ground.

“I’m sorry… I was afraid he was going to do something if I didn’t step in.”

“W-who are you?”

“Oh right! Sorry I should really introduce myself. My name is Ashton. Ashton Irwin.” He smiled again.
 
God his smile was contagious. He looked absolutely stunning. Ashton continued to hold both of my hands in his and never broke our gaze. His eyes were so enticing. He smiled again and I blushed and looked down at my dress. He followed my gaze to see it stained with blood.

“Oh… are you alright? Did you get hurt?”

“N-no… this isn’t my blood... It’s her’s...” I said pointing towards Jack who lied motionless on the floor.

That’s when I broke down again

“Oh my god… what am I going to do? I killed a girl… I... I can’t believe it.”

Ashton pulled me into a tight hug. Right now it didn’t matter who I was with I really needed a hug. Ashton started to mumble something before he pulled me out of the hug and gripped my shoulders and looked down at me.

“Love it was self defense. You didn’t have a choice. Come on I really need to get you out of here, before your boyfriend wakes up. He is going to be very angry when he does and I don’t feel that you’re safe to be with him right now, come on I have to find the others, and you’ll be safe with me. I promise.”

Ashton held out his hand for me to take. I looked back at Niall and then looked at Ashton. For some strange reason, I felt safe with him, but with Niall I didn’t know what to believe anymore. I tightly gripped Ashton’s hands and he pulled me out of the room and down the hallway only to bump into another couple. Correction it wasn’t another couple it was Sarah and a boy I had never seen in my life, but man was he hot as well.

“Bri? What the bloody hell happened!?”

She released the boys’ hand and rushed over to me.

“I... Jack was going to kill Niall. I stepped into to help him but we got into a fight. I-I pulled out the pocket knife and she had me in a hold. I stabbed it into her throat. S-she’s dead Sarah... I bloody killed someone!” I broke down into her chest, but still remained hand in hand with Ashton.

“Love it’s alright, you did it out of self defense.  Calum where is Michael and Luke? We need to get out of here before blonde wakes up in the room to see his bird gone.”

“Um I have no idea where Luke is actually and last I saw of Michael was he was helping some girl and guy get away from the security.”

“Wait Brianna where’s Niall?”

“Sarah I… I’ll tell you later but-“

“I knocked him out before he could do something to her.” Ashton replied.

“Anyways stop worrying about me… are you alright, what happened to you?”

Sarah looked at Calum and then at me

“Perrie… she took me was trying to kill me. I used up all the weapons I had. She was choking me, when Calum threw her off me… He…He saved my life.”

I titled up Sarah’s chin and sure enough she had a hand-print that stretched across her throat.

“Guys we really need to get out of here. We need to find the others and get you out safely.”

Sarah and I nodded and we started running down the maze of hallways trying to find a way out of this hell whole. I was so caught up with everything that had just happened I had barely noticed Ashton talking to me.

“Huh? What sorry?”

He chuckled before responding

“Nothing love I just said I like your name, it’s very pretty.”

He smiled at me and squeezed my hand sending a jolt through me. I swear if I looked into his hazel eyes long enough I could get lost in them. We made our way down a spiral stair case only to find the level was consumed in smoke. We changed direction and finally found a fire exit. Calum quickly unlocked the door and sprinted us outside. By the time Ashton and I made it outside we were both gasping for breath. There on the grass was Zayn and Louis. Louis was knelt down beside what looked like Eleanor and another guy who was holding her up. Yet Harry and Scarlet where nowhere to be found.

END POV

Sarah’s POV

I swear if we weren’t here for serious purposes I would have latched on to Zayn as soon as I saw him. He looked absolutely brilliant tonight. He was wearing all back suit, but decided to have a purple flower in his outer pocket that matched exactly to the color of my dress. We kept our distance, the only thing that was separating us were a few other people who were also on the west side of the balcony. I spotted Brianna across the balcony on the east side. However I was watching Niall being dragged away by some brunette. It was actually very entertaining; it was like what you see in the movies. That’s when it hit me.

Oh my God! Niall was being dragged away by a girl with a gun. Shit! Bri had no idea I was about to say something into my earpiece, when I hand clasped over my mouth and a knife at my throat. They ripped out my ear piece. I was officially screwed.

“Scream or move and I kill you on the spot. Come with me silently or everyone gets it.”

I started to shuffle my feet as I was being pulled by someone down a long hallway. After about 3 minutes I lost track of which hallway we had turned down. It was like a bloody maze at this venue. I slowly opened my clutch and pulled out my stars. I placed them on my pointer finger and waited until the person stopped walking.

We finally did and they loosened there grip on. I remembered what Scarlet told me. If you have to chance run, your weapons are your last result. As soon as they loosened the grip I sprinted out of the grasp I got barley ten steps in my heels until I was grabbed by my hair and thrown back. I didn’t even think I threw my stars at the person blocking my way. I pinned a piece of her dress on either side to a wall.

“Nice attempt love, but your no match.”

I had one star left and the dagger still in my clutch.

“I may not be an even match, but I can still try.”

I wiped the star so fast she didn’t see it coming and it landed in the wall. I blinked and there falling to the ground was a large piece of her hair. Great. If I was here I would be bloody fuming and I was right she was. She had torn out the stars that pinned her to the wall and tossed them across the room. She pulled out a dagger from the back of her dress and stalked towards me. I quickly got off my knees and clutched my dagger tightly in my hand. She swung at me but I ducked and avoided the blade. She swung back around but I took the chance and glided my blade across her stomach. It split her dress but it didn’t cause any damage.

“Oh you’re dead. By- the- way- I never- introduced- myself- I’m Perrie.”

She spoke with each swing at me. I managed to avoid most but she managed to slice my right arm. Thank god because it was my left I used to throw with. I then started to swing at her. This girl was really pissing me off.

“Huh- that’s funny- I’m Sarah- Zayn’s girlfriend.”

Idiot! You stupid idiot Sarah why did you mention the last part. Perrie’s eyes grew dark and filled with hate. She jumped me and my head hit the ground hard. She slammed my wrist on the floor and I dropped my dagger. Before she could land a punch I used one of scarlet’s moves and I pushed my hips up and flipped us. I banged the dagger out of Perrie’s hand and was about to run when she pulled me back again. God this girl was quick.

“Oh where do you think you’re going love? If I can’t have Zayn no one bloody can!”

She picked me up and slammed me against the wall. She gripped her hand tight around me throat. I tried to scream but only muffled sounds came out.

“Oh I love seeing the life drain out of your eyes. Zayn with be devastated when he sees your dead and then he will come running back to me.”

I was gripping her hands and tried to pull them away but she was to fricking strong. I swear she was on bloody steroids. I could feel my head start to spin. My eye’s started to roll back, but soon I no longer felt the death grip around my throat. Perrie was no longer there. She was on the floor and had a gun pointed to her chest. I didn’t know who that guy was but I was so happy he had come. At first I thought it was Zayn. But I soon realized as I got closer. It wasn’t Zayn who had saved me. He clicked the trigger and Perrie fell back onto the ground. The guy turned towards me and soon his facial expression changed when he saw me.

“You’re not Zayn… W-who are you?”

“I’m sorry if you had to see that… She was going to kill you I-if I didn’t do something. I’m sorry if- I scared you.” He said hesitantly. His voice wasn’t British… Maybe Aussie? My body surprised me because I soon ran up to the guy and hugged him tightly.

“T-thank-you… S-she was going to kill me so thank you” I smiled sweetly at him. He had gorgeous brown eyes, Zayn’s were amazing… but his were just enticing.

“Are you alright to walk? We have to find the others and get out of here, it’s really not safe. I promise I’m not gonna hurt you, but we really need to go now.” He gave me a faint smile and lended his hand out towards me. One thought was running through my mind. Where the hell was Zayn in all of this? Why hadn’t he come to save me? I shrugged the thought off I didn’t care. I grabbed the guys hand and we started walking down multiple corridors trying to find a way out.

“I’m Calum by the way.”He turned around and flashed me a beautiful smile.

“Sarah.” I said softly

He smiled again and when we turned the corner we bumped into another couple. Scratch that it wasn’t another couple it was Bri and a boy I had never seen in my life, but man was he fricking hot as well. Before I could process I looked down at Bri and saw she was covered in blood.

“Bri? What the bloody hell happened!?”

I released Calum’s hand and rushed over to her.

“I... Jack was going to kill Niall. I stepped into to help him but we got into a fight. I-I pulled out the pocket knife and she had me in a hold. I stabbed it into her throat. S-she’s dead Sarah... I bloody killed someone!” She broke down into my chest, but still remained hand in hand with the boy that hadn’t let go of her.

“Love it’s alright, you did it out of self defense. Calum where is Michael and Luke? We need to get out of here before blonde wakes up in the room to see his bird gone.” The boy spoke.

“Um I have no idea where Luke is actually and last I saw of Michael was he was helping some girl and guy get away from the security.” Calum responded.

Blonde wakes up? Niall? What the hell happened to Niall?

“Wait Brianna where’s Niall?”

“Sarah I… I’ll tell you later but-“ She said hesitantly.

“I knocked him out before he could do something to her.” The guy replied.

I stood there dumb found, what the hell happened while I was gone? Jesus! And I still had no idea where the rest of our group was.

“Anyways stop worrying about me… are you alright, what happened to you?”

I looked at Calum and then at Bri.

“Perrie… she took me was trying to kill me. I used up all the weapons I had. She was choking me, when Calum threw her off me… He…He saved my life.”

She titled up my chin and must have seen Perrie’s hand print across my throat.

“Guys we really need to get out of here. We need to find the others and get you out safely.”

Bri and I nodded and we started running down the maze of hallways trying to find a way out of this hell whole. Calum pulled me down the hallways. It was like a Labyrinth. So many hallways and dead ends. We made our way down a spiral stair case only to find the level was consumed in smoke. We changed direction and finally found a fire exit. Calum quickly unlocked the door and sprinted us outside. By the time I caught my breath and looked up I saw there on the grass were Zayn and Louis. Louis was knelt down beside what looked like Eleanor and another guy who was holding her up. Yet Harry and Scarlet where nowhere to be found.

As soon as Zayn saw me, I could tell he was furious. However I held on tightly to Calum’s hand. He looked at me and then at Zayn and stood in front of me.

“SARAH WHAT THE BLOODY HELL HAPPENED!”

I stepped behind Calum.

“Mate I don’t believe that’s the best for everyone. Just calm down.”

“Just calm down? She’s my girlfriend Calum! Now move!”

“Not a chance sorry lad… I think your scaring her.”

I released Calum’s hand and walked in front of him. I looked up to meet Zayn’s icy glare.

“W-where were you? Why weren’t you there? Perrie fricking tried to kill me Zayn! I would have bloody died if Calum didn’t stop her! Where were you Zayn? I trusted you! But you never came. I would be gone if Calum didn’t come when he did. You’re crazy Ex almost killed me and you weren’t there when I bloody needed you!”

Zayn looked at me with a shocked expression. This only made me angrier.

“Babe-I tried. You have no idea how scared I was when I noticed you weren’t there. I ran down multiple hallways. I-I found Perrie lying on the ground. I thought you were dead Sarah!”

“Well you got there too late. I would have been if Calum didn’t show up. So thanks’ a ton”

“Excuse me? Sarah I bloody went after you as soon as I found out you weren’t by my side! After I found Perrie I ran into Louis. He was talking about a fire, and he lost Eleanor in the crowd. I got Louis out before he passed out. Sarah- I didn’t realize. Can we please speak about this in private?”

“No Zayn. Frankly I don’t want to be near you right now. I have no idea where Scarlet or Harry are… and Niall is still- Oh my God!” I whipped around to Bri and she then realized it too.

“Niall’s still inside!”

We heard the fire door burst open and Harry came out with Niall slung over his shoulder. Where the hell was Scarlet? Was she dead?  All these thoughts were running through my head.

“Someone better start bloody explaining!”

Louis was about to speak. When a blast came from inside the venue and all the windows shattered. Flames poured out from everywhere.

“Oh my God. Where the hell is Scarlet?” Bri screamed.

That was the one question that popped into everyone’s mind. The one question we all dreaded.

 

Where. Was. Scarlet?
