-A Few Days Later-
"Char?" Hailey said walking into my room. I closed my laptop and looked up at her.
"What do you want?" I sighed.
"Char please its really important." She sighed. I sighed after a while and moved to the edge of the bed. She sat down next to me and took a deep breath.
"You know how a few weeks before we came on this tour I went to meet up with someone?" She asked me. I nodded my head, not knowing why she was bringing this up.
"I-I was meeting up with Tim Gunn. I showed him the dresses I made and the sketches I had, he loved them so much and he told me he'd call me in a few weeks. A couple of days ago he did, I-I'm getting my own clothing line." She explained to me. I went wide eyed.
"OH MY GOD HAILES THAT'S AMAZING!" I yelled pulling her into a hug. She giggled and hugged me back.
"But there's one problem, I have to go to New York every few weeks." She sighed.
"Hailes, there's something I need to tell you..." I trailed off. She looked at me waiting for me to explain.
"I applied for a University in New York a few days ago and, I got in." I smiled. She squealed and pulled me into a tight hug.
"I DON'T HAVE TO LEAVE YOU THIS IS THE BEST NEWS EVER OH MY GOD!" She yelled jumping up and down.
"But, what about Luke? And what about Calum?" She asked, her eyes widening. I sighed.
"I don't know Hailes. I honestly think that Calum wouldn't care since all he seems to be doing is hanging out with Jewels." I glared at the floor.
"Calum's only been hanging out with her because he wanted some advice on how to ask you on a date. Jewels and I have been helping him." Hailey explained. I smiled to myself. Calum really does care. Hailey sighed and sat down on the bed next to me.
"How are we going to tell them?" She asked. I took a deep breath and stood up. I walked downstairs and Hailey walked trailed behind me.
"Uhm guys," I said getting their attention.
"Go ahead Hailey, tell them." I said pushing Hailey in front of me. She glared and dragged me next to her.
"We uhm,we-we're m-moving." I mumbled.
"What?" Everyone asked.
"I said, we're moving." I mumbled again.
"What?" Everyone asked again.
"WE'RE MOVING!" Hailey yelled out. She went wide eyed and slapped her hand over her mouth.
"What." Calum and Luke said in disbelief.
"B-but you can't leave. Babe no you can't leave me." Luke said walking up to Hailey.
"Baby, please don't leave." Calum begged pulling me into a hug.
"W-we have to go." Hailey stuttered out, probably swallowing the lump in her throat.
"S-She's getting her own clothing line and I got accepted at a University." I explained, pulling away from Calum. The hurt in his eyes was evident.
"how could you do this to me,"He whispered and i was shocked.
"what?"I asked him in disbelief, and he looked at me once again a new emotion flickering in his eyes, that almost seemed like anger.
"I said how could you do this to me, I just got you and now you're leaving me!"He yelled.
"what the hell, Calum this has nothing to do with you! I've always dreamed of this but you wouldn't know god i swear sometimes i fell like our relationship is only sexual. I can't believe you!"I yelled running into my room locking the door behind me i got out my suitcase and put as much as i could in it. My flight wasn't until next week but I refuse to stay here any longer. I'll just stay in a hotel i have enough cash, I don't want to annoy Marcus and Sam and maybe it'll be better if everybody thought i left, i'm pretty sure they'll all be happier. I opened my laptop making sure i had enough charge to last me a week when my heart ached, my email was still open on the email i sent the university and there was the photo I sent in. It was a beautiful photo of the guys and Hailey at the park at sunset. they were all sitting around each other laughing and talking the setting sun hitting them perfectly.
The reason I'm sending in this photo is because not only is this a picture of the people i love to death and mean the whole world to me but because it represents all the things i'm leaving behind, the things i'm sacrificing to come to this school. It shows my sister; Hailey who i love so much, who's been there through my thick and thin moments. She's the best sister i could ever ask for and she's done so much for me. It shows my Brother; Michael, we used to be the closest a brother and sister could get, but then we had a fall out and for a big portion of my life my brother wasn't there,but I finally got him back and that was one of the best things ever, although we've only been back together for a short while it's still one of the best things ever. It shows my new best friends ; Ashton and Luke, we met only a few months ago but these two amazing, yet annoying boys have grown on me I love them like brothers. They always cheer me up and we've had the wildest time, we may haven't known each other for years but it felt like i've known them since forever. Lastly it shows my amazing boyfriend; Calum, honestly i don't know what to say because if i did this would go on for pages and pages of just how perfect his hair is. I love this boy so much it's indescribable. he's amazing he's always there for me and he doesn't know how much he really means to me. I can't imagine living life without him.So you probably think i went off topic or something but in fact i haven't, i just showed you the 5 most precious things in my life, i showed you how much they mean to me and i showed you how i'm willing to let go of them to attend your school, how much i want to go to your school, this maybe something silly and different compared to everybody else's but this has to be the best thing i have ever written,
Sincerely Charity Clifford
I closed my laptop and put it in my bag, zipping it up. I changed into skinny jeans a beatles sweatshirt and an over sized hoodie, I can't exactly sneak out of the window as i would fall and die so i have to wait until midnight and sneak off. I looked at my phone and saw it was 10 pm, only 2 more hours to go. I sat down on my desk and got a piece of paper.
So i guess this is it, i'm leaving to new york. You guys probably don't care. God i will miss you guys, even if you won't miss me. You guys probably hate me or something and that thought is literally killing me on the inside. I probably won't keep in contact, you guys probably don't care, I just though you should know, I know you don't care but I really want you to see the picture I sent in for my application, i'll email it to one of you guys later, Please no matter how much you hate me please check out the picture and paragraph, I love you guys so much. Love Charity
I folded the note and placed it on my desk and wrote To Hailey and the Guys on it. I decided i'm going to write another letter to Calum later but text it to him.
"You're so fucking selfish!" Luke yelled at me.
"Me?! I'm selfish?! YOU'RE THE ONE BEING A DICK!" I yelled at him.
"I'm not being a dick! How could you just leave me?! After everything we've been through?!" He yelled at me. I just couldn't believe him right now.
"Fuck you." I screamed at him before storming upstairs. I slammed the bedroom door closed and started to pace around.
"Fuck him. Just fuck it." I whispered to myself. I grabbed all of my suitcases and threw all my shit into it. As I was packing, Luke walked into the room.
"Baby? What are you doing?" Luke asked worriedly. I just ignored him and threw in more shit.
"Babe stop. Baby stop." Luke begged throwing things out of the suitcase.
"Fuck you." I spat, putting the things back into the suitcase. I stormed out of the room and ran downstairs.
"Jewels, you're flight is in an hour. Lets go." I said bluntly grabbing her arm.
"Baby, don't leave." Luke begged grabbing my arm but i pulled away. Jewels nodded clearly seeing I was going to breakdown any second. We quickly got outside and got in her car and she drove off to her hotel. Once we got into her room tears fell down my face freely. Jewels sat me down on the couch and hugged me as i cried into her shoulder. she looked at me to make sure i was okay once i finished sobbing. I nodded at her and she went and packed her stuff. It was time for her to leave, I hugged her goodbye and just stood there outside the hotel feeling broken.
Midnight. Fucking finally. I grabbed my suitcases and opened the door slowly, checking the hallways while walking out slowly. I walked down the stairs and hurried to the door. I sighed to myself before opening the door, and walking out. I couldn't just walk to a hotel. I looked over at Calum's car before smirking to myself. I walked back into the house and found Calum sound asleep on the couch. I sighed and slowly walked over to him. I slowly slid my hand into his back pocket and grabbed his keys. He started to stir in his sleep, and then he turned over onto his back, trapping my arm.
"God damnit." I whispered to myself, glaring at him. I slowly pulled my hand out from under his ass and sighed in relief.
"Charity." Calum cried out. I looked down at him and saw that he was still asleep.
"Baby don't go. I-I love you." My heart stopped beating for a few seconds. I sighed, my heart was slowly shattering.
"Goodbye Calum, I love you." I whispered, kissing his forehead and for the first time i wasn't really sure about the decision i had just made. I walked out my heart completely and utterly shattered, I got in the car and drove off to the nearest hotel. I got into the lobby and booked myself a room. For the first time in ages I fell asleep crying, with a broken heart.
