Chapter 32

Harry’s POV

I woke up alone in bed. I hated the feeling. The feeling that the girl I loved was gone. The feeling that I was alone and she was never coming back. I pulled myself together and walked down stairs. I walked across the living room and into the kitchen. I decided to skip breakfast and just make myself a cup of tea. After awhile I threw the tea bag out into the compost only to find another tea bag in the compost. I reached down and touched it

It was still damp and warm…

I closed the lid and walked around the main floor. I didn’t see or hear any of the boys up and I started to get concerned. Maybe Louis had made himself a tea last night? No that wouldn’t make any sense, because Louis always leaves his cup lying around. I walked back into the kitchen and grabbed my mug.

I wanted to leave this house as soon as possible, something didn’t feel right and I felt as if I wasn’t the only one up. I ran upstairs and searched the drawers of the room I slept in. Sure enough there was a hand gun hidden in one of the side tables. I tucked the gun in the waist band of my joggers and ran back downstairs. I explored each room, only to find nothing. I was about to shrug off the feeling when I heard the faintest noise downstairs. I looked up from the font entrance and saw all the doors shut except for mine.

Ok so none of the boys were up, so then why the hell was I hearing things? Maybe I was going crazy, I was paranoid and I needed to let it go but something inside me just couldn’t…

I pulled the gun from my waistband and slowly crept downstairs. I didn’t bother turning on light as I hid on the sofa waiting to hear the noise again. Sure enough this time it was louder… almost as if it sounded like a door being opened. I looked around the room and sure enough someone was quietly stepping out of the door.

The person’s face was covered, so I couldn’t make out any facial features. I slowly stepped off the sofa and walked up behind the person. I pressed the gun into their head.

“You do so much as move a  fucking muscle and I will kill you.” I sneered.

 They didn’t respond instead they turned on me and knocked the gun out of my hand. They kicked me in the gut and I bent over in pain. Alright if they wanted to fight fine I’ll fight.

They tried to kick me again but this time I caught their foot. I spun and flipped them on the floor. I tackled them and was about to punch, when they flipped me over. They were making a run for it when I jumped across the pool table cutting them off. I ran towards them and pushed them up against the bookshelf hard and squeezed their throat. They tried the rip my hands off their throat but I banged their head against the shelf causing books to fall. The sun was starting to shine through the windows lighting the basement in a dim light. I could faintly see it wasn’t a guy I was fighting but a girl.  

I was snapped from my thoughts when she sprinted towards me doing a baseball dive between my legs. She grasped my ankle and pulled. She then started to head towards the windows when I caught her by the hood and dragged her back.

“You’re not going anywhere!” I spat. I faintly heard the pounding of footsteps. “Harry what’s going on!” I heard Louis voice. “Down here!”I snapped. She tried to claw out of my grasp but I was too strong.

All the boys came crashing into the basement and the lights were flicked on revealing the hooded girl. She stopped fighting against my hold and I slowly released her but held a firm grip on her shoulder. She lifted her hands and pulled her hood down lower on her face.

“What the hell is that?” Louis exclaimed. I rolled my eyes. “How the hell did she get in?” Zayn mumbled. “I don’t know.” I sneered.

Niall stepped forward and grabbed the gun that she had managed to knock out of my hands. He walked towards the girl and pointed it at her.

“You have about 10 second to explain how you got in.” Niall growled.

The girl didn’t budge, but instead she titled her head down lower. I gripped her right shoulder tighter and she gasped in pain.

“Do not make me shoot, how do you know about this place?” The girl took a small step back and lifted her head slowly.  I still couldn’t make out any features and I could tell the boys were getting fed up.

“Answer the fucking question!” Zayn roared, but the girl didn’t even flinch. I dug down into her shoulder harder and she screamed in pain.

She crumpled down onto her knees and kept her head low. I didn’t think I had put that much force when I squeezed her shoulder. But it didn’t matter if I had hurt her, I needed to get my head in the game and focus.

“Alright I’ve about had it, who the hell are you!” I snapped.

She only sighed and cracked her knuckles. She slowly stepped up from the ground. I thought she was actually going to reply but she made a run for it she was almost to the top of the basement stairs when Zayn caught her and dragged her back down.

“Alright I’ve had it, Niall give me the gun!” Zayn snapped. Niall handed over the gun and pressed it into her temple.

 Suddenly a lock of her hair fell from her hood that had hidden her all this time.

I knew that color from anywhere. No this wasn’t happen, this couldn’t be happening… I couldn’t… my eyes grew wide.

“Hazza are you alright?” Louis nudged my arm. I tried to tell him but the words wouldn’t form in my mouth.

“Any last words Hun?” Zayn smirked.

She cleared her throat and finally spoke.

“I don’t think you want to do that…” She said softly.

Everyone’s eyes grew wide and Zayn took a step back. Louis walked forward and bent down to her level. He slowly reached out his hand and pulled back the hood. Everyone gasped because there standing before us was…


I couldn’t move, I couldn’t speak. I was absolutely shocked. So many emotions were running through my mind. I reached out my hands towards her and instantly pulled it back. If this was some sick dream. All I wanted to do was to wake up. I couldn’t deal with this. I didn’t want to deal with this.

“No… this… you’re… come on wake up… Why am I not waking up?!” I screamed out.

She looked up at me and her expression softened.

“…This isn’t a dream Haz.” She spoke quietly.


Scarlet’s POV

I knew I couldn’t hide forever, but I needed everyone to believe I was dead, so the people who were after me would give up. I knew I was going to have to face them sooner or later I just didn’t think it would come up so quickly. It was absolute silence and I couldn’t take it. I could feel all of their gazes on me and I hated it.

“No… this… you’re… come on wake up… Why am I not waking up?!”Harry screamed out. I winced at his words. It broke my heart to lie to Harry but I had to. I did it for their own safety.

I did it to protect them.

I slowly looked up from the ground and into Harry’s eyes.

“…This isn’t a dream Haz.” I said quietly.

“So… you’re really here? As... In alive?!” Louis whispered. I nodded my head and met his gaze. Louis pulled me into a hug that I had missed. I wrapped my arms around him and held him tight. I pulled away from Louis and looked at all the guys.

“Look I will explain everything, but right now I need to speak with Harry alone if that’s alright?” I said softly all the boys’ nodded but Harry shook his head.

“No… you… you died… you left me… and now I find out you lied?! YOU PROMISED NO MORE LIES!” Harry screamed. I winced at his words but didn’t back down

“I did it to protect you. I did it to protect our friends! I DID IT TO PROTECT US HARRY!” I yelled back.

“I’M SUPPOSED TO BE PROTECTING YOU SCARLET!” Harry snapped back, getting in my face.

“No you’re not! We protect each other! That’s how a god damn relationship works Harry! I did it to protect you…”

I took a deep breath and stepped closer to Harry who stepped back. I looked up at Harry with tears threatening to spill from my eyes.

“You think faking your death was a way of trying to protect me? You think faking your death would help? Well here is a little fact Scarlet it didn’t! Did you know how it felt to hear the heart monitor go flat? Did you know how it felt to sleep alone at night because you were gone?!” Harry snapped

“Harry please-“ I never got to finish because Harry quickly cut me off.

“Honestly Scarlet tell me did you even bloody think of how this would affect the rest of us? Did you even bother to think how this has affected me?! No! You don’t because you don’t bloody think! You could have told me! I thought we were finished with the lying!”

That was the last straw. I took a step forward and got right in Harry’s face.

“Don’t you even say I don’t think! Is that what you did with Kali Harry? Did you ever think about how that would affect me?! Or did you not think that far ahead, you stupid, self centered cheating ass! If I would have told you or any of the god damn boys for the matter, they would still be trying to hunt us down! I bought us some time! I became a ghost. I took a page out of your perfect little ex’s tricks and took a pill.” I snapped and shoved Harry away.

His eyes flashed with anger and he took a step towards me. I was about to knock Harry when I felt my wrist being pulled and I was suddenly face to face with Zayn.

“What do you mean you went ghost?” He asked.

“It means I made myself as if I really died when I didn’t, making me a so called ghost. I am able to go undercover and I won’t be tracked because any information that was on me has been erased because there is no need to keep data or Intel on anyone if you’re dead. I’m literally like a ghost. I exist but they won’t be able to find me, hence the name.” I replied.

“She has a point Harry, you or any of us wouldn’t have reacted the way we did if we would have known.” Liam said.
I spun back around and met Harry’s gaze that was filled with anger and pain.

“Now do you understand why I did what I did?” I looked up to him with hope. “I didn’t tell you because you wouldn’t have convinced his men that were hunting me down.”

“Damn right I wouldn’t have convinced his men! Hell I wouldn’t have even let you go through with it! How could you just lie to me like that?!” Harry growled.

Anger built up within me

“How could you just cheat on me like that? I want to know Harry! I gave you a reason as to why I lied yet you haven’t given me one bloody reason as to why you kissed her!” I lashed out causing Harry to wince.

“It was a kiss! I didn’t mean anything!” He defended

“LIAR!” I screamed.

“Excuse me?” Harry growled as his eyes narrowed at me.

“You heard me! And if it didn’t mean anything Harry, I guess this doesn’t mean anything either!”

Before I could process what I was doing, I marched up to Louis and kissed him. Before I could do anything else I was ripped from Louis grasp. Harry soon went Livid and was about to swing at Louis when I kicked Harry’s feet from out under him and pinned him down.

His nostril flared and I could see the anger build up within him

“If you know what’s best for you Scarlet then you with get off me!” He snapped.

“You’re going to kill your best mate!”

“I have every bloody right to kill him! You are mine Scarlet!”

I shook my head slowly as the tears stung in my eyes.

“Haz look… listen to what you are saying… He’s making us turn on each other! Don’t you see Harry? Don’t you see what we’ve become? Harry were destroying ourselves instead of standing together…”

I saw Harry blink and guilt spread across his face

“Harry now you know how I felt that night I saw you and Kali kissing. He is tearing us apart Harry!” I cried out.

I slowly crawled off Harry and got to my feet. I felt the tears fall from my eyes and I quickly whipped them away. Harry got up and stepped forwards towards me, but I took a step back.

“Scarlet please I-“Harry croaked.

I shook my head and waved him off. “No… don’t Haz.”

I pushed past the boys and began to walk towards the steps to the basement stairs when someone caught my wrist. I knew it was Harry but I refused to turn around.

“Babe please…” Harry whispered.

“You almost killed Lou… Don’t you see Harry? This is what he has wanted all along. The two of us alone are dangerous but together were powerful. Were letting him tear us apart…. You… You Harry are letting him tear us apart.” I croaked.

“Scarlet please turn around.” Harry said softly

I shook my head once more. I tried to continue climbing the stairs but Harry held a firm grip

“Harry let go.” I said

“No. Not until you turn around.” He said swiftly.

“Harry please I just want to go and-“ I never got to finish my sentence because Harry climbed up on the same stair as me and took a step closer so that his body towered over mine. He grabbed my cheeks and titled my head so that my eyes met with his.

“Please don’t walk away from me. If there’s anything I’ve learned in life is that I can’t lose you. I screwed up. Your right he is tearing us apart, but were stronger than this. I love you Scarlet and nothing is ever going to change that. Not this man, not that stupid kiss, nothing will ever change that. Just… I just don’t think I can take it if you walk away.” He spoke in a raspy voice.

Harry searched my eyes for answers as he took his thumb to whip the tears from my eyes.

“Harry it’s not that simple I just can’t-” Before I could finish Harry’s lips were upon mine. I put my hands on his chest, but I didn’t have the energy to fight. A fire was building up inside me and I quickly broke the kiss. Harry’s head rested upon mine.

I stared into his eyes and for a moment everything felt fine. But soon reality kicked in and everything still wasn’t okay.

“You tell me you don’t feel anything for me. You tell me you didn’t feel a thing with that kiss and you tell me you don’t love me and I will let you walk away. You tell me right now and I will let you walk away Scarlet, but I know just as much as you do you feel something when we touch.”

I didn’t bother giving an answer because Harry already knew what it was.

“I know I’ve acted out, but that is because I have never loved anyone so much in my life, but all I’m asking you to do is to try. Please Scarlet, I know damn well you feel the same Scarlet….so please don’t walk away.” He said softly.

I closed my eyes and tried to shut out everything Harry had just confessed. I tried to close out our problems and our worries. I tried to close out my heart and my mind, I tried to shake the feeling and walk away, but my feet wouldn’t budge. I felt the tears come faster and I closed my eyes even tighter wishing everything would just stop

“Darling open your eyes.”

I didn’t fight it and I was met with Harry’s piercing gaze.

“I love you.”

Those three words. That’s all it took was three simple words. The same words my mother had used on my dad and those same three words Harry had now used on me. I sighed and pointed to him and myself.

“This… isn’t better between us… but I guess it’s a start.”

Harry picked me up and I wrapped my legs around his waist. He kissed me as he walked me back down the stairs. I broke the kiss and brushed the curls from his eyes. He flashed me a cheeky grin as we walked back towards the guys.

“Good to have you back Scar.” Louis smirked.

 Harry chuckled and I slid out of his grasp.  I turned and faced all four boys smiling back at me as Harry hand fit in mine. I looked up to Harry and then back to the boys

“Well, now we have some serious work to do.” I said swiftly.
