CHAPTER NINE : MIDNIGHT DATE
~~~~~~~TWO WEEK LATER~~~~~~~~
I covered her mouth as fast as I could so she wouldn’t scream.
“Shh.” I said to her. “It’s just me, relax.” And I slowly let her free.
“Calum? What are you doing? Don’t wake me up like that!” She slapped my arm really hard, I guess I made her angry.
“Come on princess, you said you’d go on a date with me.” I said laying down beside her.
“Calum it’s like 1 AM.” She said looking at her phone as she sat up.
“It’s the perfect time.”
“How is this the perfect time?”
“Because, everyone is asleep. It’s our secret date, and no fangirls will mob us or even paparazzi. Please?” I tried to convince her.
“Okay, I’ll go with you.”
“Yay! Now just wear something to keep you warm, it’s cold outside. I’ll be waiting at your balcony.” I stood up and went out to the cold night of her balcony and waited for her.
I hope she likes my plan. A few minutes later I hear the balcony doors open and I saw her. She’s beautiful no matter what she wears.
“I can hear Michael and Luke playing next door. Won’t they notice we’re gone?” She sounded worried.
“Don’t worry princess, I sneak out all the time to get away and get lost in my thoughts. Come with me, you’ll be safe.” I said sticking out my hand to her.
“I trust you, Calum.” She takes my hand and I slowly lead her quietly down the stairs. The balcony is too high for us to go down.
“Where are we going?” She said holding my hand tighter.
“You’ll see.” I smiled at her.
We left the house and we’re on the street. I held her close to me as we start our walk.
“So why would you agree to go on a date with me if we’re going to be siblings?” I asked her as I lead the way.
“Because I thought about what you said. That it doesn’t mean you can’t love me. I’m not sure how I feel yet but I don’t know… maybe someday I’ll find someone to love.” I started to think about what she said and listened to what she had to say.
“So why did you ask me out on a date?” She said smiling as she kicked a rock ahead of us.
“Because I knew you’d say yes.” I laughed a little.
“Very funny.” She smiled at me.
“Almost there.” I said holding her close.
“But really, why did you?” She kicked the same rock a few more feet ahead of us.
“Because I wanted to apologize for being a jealous idiot earlier when you fell on Ashton the other week; I also want us to get to know each other better.” I continued talking as we turned around the corner.
“It’s okay, I forgive you. I can’t wait to get to know you better.” She puts her arm on my back as her hand holds my waist. I switched my position and put my arm around her shoulders guiding her where to go.
We walked quietly under the stars for a few minutes and we finally reached the park.
“The park is beautiful at night. So peaceful, calm and it has so much colorful lights.” She said with her eyes wandering around admiring the sight. I smiled at that.
“We’re almost there.” I started leading her to the small bridge over a small river.
We stood in the middle looking up at the night sky right above us. Stars, the moon, weather is perfect, my heart was beating I couldn’t control how I feel anymore.
I went at the back of her and hugged her from behind.
“Warm enough?” I whispered in her ear.
“Heh, yeah. Thank you.” She held my hands close to her.
We stayed for a while to get to know each other. We asked random questions and every answer we give is either unbelievable or just really adorable.
“Want to find a place to sit or lay down?” I finally asked her, I don’t want her to feel so tired.
“Sure, I’d like that.” She held my hand and we started to walk around.
After a few more minutes we found a soft place to settle down. I took my jacket off so she can lay down on it and not feel so itchy from the grass.
“Won’t you be cold?”
“It’s okay, I have you to hug.” I helped her sit down and I sat beside her.
“Calum…” She said quietly looking down.
“Ya?” I said putting my arm around her.
“How do you feel about me? It’s been two weeks. It’s a short period of time but it feels like months because I’ve been living with you. I just want to know.”
When she asked that, my heart began to beat faster than ever.
I lifted up her chin to make her look me in the eyes. “…I feel like I like you. I like you, a lot.” I said seriously.
I can’t be in love with her this fast. There’s just no way that could happen.
“How about you?” I was afraid to ask, but I wanted to know.
“Hmm… I don’t really know how I feel yet. All I know is that when you’re with me my heart wants to come out of my chest because it beats so fast, like I’m nervous around you and I don’t know why.”
…Exactly how I feel.
We laid down to watch the stars some more. Looking for the big dipper and all that cool stuff, she was laying on my right arm while I hold her hand with my left.
“Hey, how do you feel when I call you princess?” I said playing with her hands.
“I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I like it, it makes me feel special.” She was laying on my chest this time as I slowly rub my hands on her back.
It’s almost 3 AM and we should get back to the house around 4, I’m happy we have this time together.
“Calum! Did you see that?” She sounded excited.
“Yupp, that was a really bright shooting star.” I smiled at her.
This moment is perfect. I could do this forever with her.
“Make a wish, Calum!” she sat up with excitement and closed her eyes to make her wish with her hands formed into fists under her cheeks.
She’s really adorable…
I got up when she did and I did something I never thought I would do till later…
I held her face, my hands on her cheeks and I slowly kissed her soft, pink, and fragile lips for a few seconds.
My heart was pounding faster than Ashton’s drumming.
My heart was going to explode out of me and take my life away.
…My heart was beating like no tomorrow I’ve never felt this way before.
I can feel her hands going down slowly and then I felt her holding my hands that’s on her beautiful face.
I slowly stopped.
Our foreheads touching, and I looked her in the eyes.
Both of us trying to catch our breath from that first kiss of a lifetime.
“I wish to be with you, forever.” I whispered to her.
I’m falling hard for this girl, and it’s too early for that…
I woke up to Shep barking at me at 9 AM.
“Sheppppp shut uppppppp” I said waking up yawning as I sat up.
I suddenly remembered about last night and I felt my lips.
Calum kissed me last night…
Or was it all just a dream?
…No it couldn’t be a dream. I remembered every detail of it.
Beside me I see Calum’s jacket.
“Yupp, definitely not a dream.” I said to myself out loud.
I laid back down and when I closed my eyes, I started to remember what happened.
After the kiss we stayed a little more in silence and we decided to go back home. We were both in my room and it’s already 4AM, the sun wasn’t up yet and we were laying down on my bed.
“I’m not your girlfriend okay, Calum?” I said looking straight at him.
“I know.” He said with a serious look.
“I just don’t want you to be jealous if I’m with the others.”
“I’ll try to control myself. You should get some rest.” He said getting up and kissing my forehead.
“Good night, princess.” He said with a smile and left my room.
I opened my eyes again, and I see Shep in front of me.
She must be hungry.
I got up for a quick shower and I changed to regular summer clothes and carried Shep out.
“Hey, Tomato!” I heard Ashton say down the hall.
“Remember what I asked you two weeks ago?” He said with a scary yet cute smile on his face.
…Shit I just remembered. After the first lunch we had together, Ashton asked me to go on a small date with him to find presents for our parents.
“The date right? For the presents?” I said hoping he didn’t noticed I almost forgot about it.
“It’s not a date, but if you want it to be that way.” He laughed about it.
“I’ll be ready in a few just going to feed Shep.” I said to him.
“I’ll feed her for you, you get ready. I’ll meet you downstairs.” He said smiling at me.
Well… at least I get to know the brothers one by one somehow.
