20. ~Chapter 20~
I think I'm losing everything I ever had. Calum. Michael. Nataly... I should have listened to them. They were telling me the truth about May and I blindly shoved them away as if they were flies. I lost everything just because of May... I have to do something! First I have to make it up to Michael and Calum then I will make it up to Nataly. I took a deep breath and let it out. I was right outside Calum's house. I knew Michael would be here because they always played Fifa after school on Thursdays. I gripped the door handle of the car but never opened it. Why can't I face them? They are my friends! Oh used to be my friends... I signed. It's now or never. I slowly opened the car door and walked up the pathway to the door. I knocked on the door. Calum's mum, Joy answered the door.
"Luke! How wonderful to see you! What can I do for you?" she chirped and gave me a smile. I gave her a shy smile back.
"Is Calum here? I really need to talk to him," I answered. She looked at her for a second and then looked at me. Her smile had vanished. She shook her head.
"No. He's.... Uh... At Ashton's! Well, I got to go, Luke! Nice seeing you sweetheart!" then she closed the door in my face. She lied to me! I know he's in there! I saw his head when she looked behind her! I pulled out my phone and called Calum's house phone. His house phone doesn't have Caller ID so I know he'll have to pick up. And it worked! He picked it up after a couple of rings.
"What do you want Luke?" he asked with an annoyed voice.
"How did you know it was me?" I didn't really answer his question but asked another one.
"I can you on my front porch from my room..."
"So you are home! But that's not the point. I'm sorry for what I did to you guys and Nataly! I was so stupid and I guess I fell under May's spell! Dude, I love you guys! You guys are the best! I need you..." I barely said the last part.
"I forgive you," Calum replied but it sounded closer now. I turned to see Calum and Michael standing at the doorway. I know this would say pretty lame but I was crying at this point. They walked over and gave me a hug. "Now. You aren't done yet! What are you going to do about Nataly?" he asked as we all pulled away. I sighed.
"I don't know! I bet she hates me right now..." I lowered my head.
"Don't worry dude! We'll help you get her back!" Michael spoke up. I smiled. I can always count on them to make me happy.
