I wake up to creeping floors outside of my door. I have tissues around me and a blanket on top of me. I slowly grab my phone, groaning because I had to move the 3 or 4 inches. I have millions of texts from Ronnie, Noah, Owen and Jayden, especially Jayden. Not to mention the missed calls. I open my phone to see what I texted them to make them do this since I can't remember.
I read the texts they sent. They read what's the matter, are you dying, where are you, and others like that. I type in Jayden's phone number. She answers immediately.
"What's the matter." She blurts out before I could even say hey.
"No hi or hello?"
"Calum has a girlfriend."
"Oh thanks to see that you care."
"I didn't mean it like that. I meant like maybe he has a girlfriend cause he is lonely." To be honest, I never thought about that.
"The problem isn't that he had one even though that kind of makes me feel weird. It's because he never told me, I never got to meet her."
"Well do you want to meet her?"
"To be honest, no cause I'm the daughter he hasn't seen since the day I was born and she's the girl to help him with his loneliness. I don't think we would get along." She laughs. Everything goes silent.
"Ummmm....I've gotta tell you something." She sounds nervous."Well actually two things."
"Well the first one was that I already knew that he had a girlfriend."
"Well, you went to the bathroom and he pulled me aside, saying that he's been wanting to tell you since he met you but he was scared. I told him that he would know the right time. I guess I was wrong."
"No, Michael ended up saying her name and I got pissed and Calum and I fought. I called her a bitch cause ya know I was mad and he got really close in my face and yelled at me. He told me to never fucking call her a bitch again."
"He must really love her."
"But that's not the worst part. He told me that I live in a place of fear. That I push everyone away when all they want to do is help." I close my eyes tightly to stop the tears from falling down. It didn't work at all.
"Come to my house. My mom is out on a business trip for a week. Stay for a day or two to get this junk sorted out." I get up and I look around for my duffle bag that I would normally use for sports. But today is not a normal day sadly. When has a day been normal since I was arrested?!
"I may be staying longer than that."
"Okay, I'll be waiting outside."
"What was that thing you wanted to tell me?"
"I'll tell you when you get here."
"Is it important."
"Okay bye Jay."
"Bye baby girl."
I throw my phone on my bed. I go to the closet and I stuff shirts in my bag. Next, shorts. I only grab a couple pairs since I'm gonna already have some on and I could wash my shorts at Jayden's house.I grab my phone charger, laptop, jacket, and shoes. I grab my phone and put the duffle bag over my shoulder.
I walk downstairs but I stop in my path. I forgot about my toothbrush. I walk back up the stairs as quietly as I could and go straight to the bathroom, grabbing all of my essentials. I tip-toe down the stairs and into the kitchen. I grab an apple,piece of paper and pen.
Dear whoever really,
I'm going to Jayden's to
think about things. I'll be
back in a couple of days.
If your wondering, I took
one of your cars.
(P.S.-don't come looking for me.)
I put the paper on the fridge door and I grab a pair of car keys.
I put the key in the ignition and roar down the street. I hope that woke one of them up. I stop at a red light and I turn on the radio.
"And now, here's the number one hit from 5 Se-" I change the station.
"Yeah how about no."
I get to Jayden's house in about 30 minutes. I look down at my clock on my phone, 9:46. Wow, I think to myself, early. Maybe Michael's up?
I get out of the car and I walk up to Jayden's front porch. I don't have to ring the doorbell or knock. I'm family here they say. I open the door and I walk straight up to her room. She knocked out on her bed, one leg hanging over the edge. I laugh to myself so I don't wake her up. I grab a blanket from her closet, a pillow from her bed that she wasn't using and I fall asleep on the floor.
3 hours later
Someone shakes my shoulders. I turn over. I know Jayden wants me to get up but she should know that I would really be happy I slept a little longer. I'm an early bird. The only reason I woke up early today was because I was sleeping on my hardwood floor. That ain't so comfortable. Now I'm sleeping on this nice, comfortable carpet. I know carpet isn't the softest or best thug to sleep on but it beats hardwood floors any day.
"C'mon Jayden...five more minutes."
"No! My house my rules." I lift my head at her with the 'what the hell you talking about' face. She cracks up.
"I'm just messing with you. I just wanted to know if you wanted pancakes and eggs?" I put my head back down on the pillow and close my eyes.
"Will there be bacon?"
"Yes...there will be bacon." I lift my finger up to show I want one pancake.
"You sure only one?" I put my hand up and replace the one with 3.
"That's more like it. Now go back to sleep. You should be resting." She closes the door behind me.
About an hour later, Jayden comes up with two plates for me and her. She's got my eggs, 3 pancakes and bacon looking beautiful. I sit down on her bed and turn on the tv. She places the plate on my lap.
"Now did you make the eggs with cheese?"
"Bacon no to soft?"she nods her head."And the pancakes aren't burnt?"
"Shut up and eat!" I laugh and I eat my food. We finish and continue watching and laugh at the ridiculousness show. I turn down the volume.
"So hey....what was the important thing you wanted to talk about." She's caught by surprise but shakes her head and looks deep into my eyes to show how important it really is.
"That day at the hospi-"
"No no no. This isn't about you." I cock an eyebrow at her.
"Okay it is about you but not about the day at the hospital."
"Well then what is it? Did he get arrested again?"
"No nothing like that. He's just....he's acting crazy."
"He's talking about Calum...he's planning on killing him." My mouth falls down to the bed. What?!
"What the hell are you talking about?!"
"I heard him and Noah talking after I as went to the bathroom. Owen was saying things like oh she's only mine and no one else can have her." I put my hand on my head and lean on her headboard.
"This is crazy. He knows I'm not his."
"Not in his eyes."
"Well then he's gonna learn." I get up and I start going to my phone.
"Don't do it. He's sickness is getting worse. If you tell him something about this...no one could imagine what he will do." I completely forgot he was sick.
Owen had this sickness that makes him do insane things. He can't control it sometimes. It seems to really show when he's passionate about something.
"He needs to know."
"You put his number in, your life and everyone else's in that house is in danger." She says as I type in his number. I go to touch the green button before taking in what she said.
"I'll just have to take that chance." I touch the button and it rings. I put it on speaker for her to hear.
"Can we talk?"
"Sure...I'm all yours." I make that awkward laugh that you do your like yeaahhhhh no.
"Ummm....great then. So you know back at the hospital when I was talking about Calum."
"Yeah. What about it."
"You know that was true." I sit in front of Jayden and I place the phone down on the bed.
"No it wasn't. You had drugs."
"No...I meant what is said."
"No you didn't. You love me, not him."
"No..." I take a deep breathe and close my eyes tightly."I....I love him." I open them to see Jayden with her mouth wide open. I can't believe I just said that I loved him.
"Well that's it then."
"Your all dead."
"What?!" Jayden yells and grabs the phone. She holds it up to her mouth."You listen here. You are not hurting anyone of them, do you hear me?!" He hangs up.
