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 8

Zayn's POV

I lifted Scarlet off the bike and ran her inside.

Louis I thought.

I needed Louis! His mom was a nurse so surely Louis would be able to help her.

"Louis!" I called out frantically. Still no answer.

I ran into the common room to see the boys had fallen asleep. I quickly kicked Louis of the sofa and he landed on the floor with a thud.

"What was that for." He asked still drowsy from his sleep. "Get up now! Scarlet's been shot!" I practically screamed.

This time Liam had now awoke and Niall and Harry had come running into the room. I laid her down on the sofa. She was bleeding bad and looked so helpless. I was brought back to reality when Harry ran over and started yelling at me.

"What the hell was that!" He sneered.

“I didn't see the guy! He came out of no where! Honest! Scarlet swerved out of traffic and he was right there. He shot her twice. He... He was going to shoot me, but Scarlet braked the bike so he wouldn't...she...she saved my life. She took a bullet for me."

I thought about this for a moment. I couldn't believe the girl I had tried so desperately to hate had saved my life and now she was dying and I couldn't even begin to thank her.

"Guys the bullets are out... but she still bleeding pretty bad, I’m going to need someone to help me with this, so I can stitch her up." Louis said quietly.

I knelt down and started applying pressure while Harry ran out of the room to find a needle. Niall and Liam left to call Sarah and Brianna to tell them the flight had been bumped back a day and Scarlet had gotten sick and that we would reschedule dinner tomorrow night.

Harry then came back into the room with a needle. Louis started stitching her up while Liam talked with Harry.

"Zayn I think she will be alright, Zayn you got her here in time. A few more minutes and she would have been dead." Louis said.

I nodded as Louis put his hand on my shoulder and squeezed giving me a reassuring pat. He then walked over to his computer and started hacking into traffic cams to see who had ambushed us.

I looked back down at Scarlet; she looked so peaceful with her eyes shut. A strand of hair had fallen in front of her face. I slowly brushed the curl out of her face and murmured so that no one would hear.

"Scarlet, your safe now, I need to tell you- I need you to know you scared the living shit out of me back there. You need to wake up so I know you’re ok. You need to wake up so I can tell you-" But I was cut off as Harry came to sit me beside Scarlet.

"I'm sorry mate, I just- I mean she- never mind. I'm sorry for lashing out." Harry said.

"It's ok man, I should have seen the guy, she should have let me get shot... not her." I mumbled.

Harry and I sat there for hours on end, constantly checking her pulse.



Hoping she would wake up.

It was around 3 am when the boys called it quits, but Harry and I stayed awake. It was around 6am when Harry and I crashed.


Scarlet's POV

I awoke the next morning trying to remember what had happened.

Five guys ambushed us.

I had braked the bike so Zayn wouldn't die.

I had received two bullet wounds.

I was almost to the house when Zayn carried me into the house and I had lost all consciousness.

Even though my body was out, my mind was wide awake, and now I had remembered everything Zayn had confessed. I repeated the words over in my head before I was shaken from my thoughts

"You know they haven't left your side since you came in." Liam mumbled before continuing to read his book.

"Did all of this really happen? I mean who the hell ambushed us? Why did they ambush us?" I asked.

"Yes all of it happened, you almost died, if it hadn't been for Zayn you would be dead. As to who ambushed us, we still have no clue, but we think it may be the same guys who had attacked us in the house and they ambushed us because of you Scarlet... They were after you. They never shot any of the other boys unless they came near your bike. Were assuming they tried to kill you but its a lot harder to kill someone when there is another person with you."

I took a moment to process this. Zayn had actually saved me... And I had taken to shots for him... This couldn't be happening! I had taken a bullet for the people I despised the most. I lifted my shirt to see that in fact I had two small scares on my stomach.

So this meant that everything Zayn had said was true... But I needed to know the rest of what he was supposed to tell me. Harry and Zayn had slowly awoke from the floor.

"Morning boys, have a nice sleep on the floor?" I smirked. "Scarlet shut it, I'm not in the mood for your sarcasm." Harry mumbled. "Yeah Scar, it’s too early in the morning, go back to bed" Zayn murmured.

"You too are such idiots." Liam said looking over his book at the two boys.

The boys looked at each other with confused face before looking back at me. They went wide-eyed when they realized I was up.

"You’re alive! We thought you were dead!" Harry said, getting up to check my pulse again.

"Nope, I’m still alive, and still able to severely hurt you, if you don't take your fingers off my neck right now." I said.

Harry slowly lowered his fingers and mumbled a apology to me as he walked back over to an empty chair.

Zayn however hadn't moved. He looked speechless. His eyes never left mine, until I couldn't let this inner self take control; I quickly looked away and turned to Harry and Liam.

"I'm getting some tea, do you need anything?" I asked the three boys.

"Tea please!" They chirped.

I got up and was about to take a step forward, when my body lost control and I started to fall.

Zayn with lightning reflects caught me before I hit the floor.

"Whoa, be careful. You took two bullets remember? I'll help you to the kitchen." He murmured in my ears before pulling me up and supporting me with his hand around my waist.

We slowly walked into the kitchen before I quickly escaped his grasp.

"Thanks, but I’ll take it from here, I don't need your help."

"What the hell is your issue? Honestly scarlet, why did you take the bullet for me if you hate me so much and want me dead? I want the truth." He responded.

The truth. Suddenly I had mixed the truth with emotions, things I had never felt in my life, until I got to know these boys. Why scarlet! Why? I felt like it was now wrong to finish out my revenge. They had killed my sister, I Had to remember this. They killed her and left her in an alleyway to die. Even if I did have to spend the rest of my days here, I couldn't be thinking or feeling these things.

If I had to live here, I would make it a living hell for them.

"I don't have to tell you anything! I don't have to tell any of you anything! You stupid-" I didn't finish my sentence as his lips crashed against mine forcefully, and then became softer. I had to stop it.

My hand connected with his face as he winced in pain. I then punched him in his sweet spot, and he doubled over in pain. I saw the cabinet beside his face; I walked over to it, swinging it open hard enough to hit him right in the face. He fell to the ground and opened his eyes to see me bend down to him.

"Don't you ever try anything like that again!" I sneered. Before he went out like a light.

I walked back into the room to see all the boys in the room awake. I walked over to Harry handing him his drink as he winked at me. I rolled my eyes and walked over to Liam and gave him his.

“I am going to go get some food from the kitchen." Niall said. “Be careful where you step" All the boys looked at me with confused faces. Niall spoke up. "Why? What did you do?" He asked.

"You'll find out for yourself, when you go."

All of the boys gave each other a quick look before they sprinted out of the room and down the hall to the kitchen.

I knew they had seen Zayn lying on the floor in a ball, when Harry yelled.

"Scarlet what the hell did you do to him?"

I burst out into Laughter, and sipped my tea, little did I know this would come back to bite me in the ass.
