* Melissa's POV *
(AN- 5 years later, Mel is 16 now)
As I packed my bags and said goodbye to my Nan, I was excited to go back, to see my Mom and my Dad, yes they split up, but my Dad lives a few streets away from my Moms, but, I was most excited to see Calum, I know he will hate me, but seeing his face is good enough for me.
After I moved to my Nans, I was really depressed, I wouldn't eat, and I developed and eating disorder, I'm recovering now, but it's hard, but what they don't know is that I developed self harm issues, I've tried to stop, but it's not as easy, at night the guilt rushes through my body, of leaving Calum without an explanation. It kills me inside.

After exiting the plane and picking up my bags I start to feel anxious, has everyone changed?, will they remember me?, do they hate me?, I walk into the arrivals to see My Mom, Calum's Mom Joy and Calum's sister Mali.
"Mali!!" I shouted running towards her.
* Calum's POV *
I wake up knowing that Melissa is coming home today, I don't know how I feel about it, I'm so glad she is coming home, but, she left me, after I told her how I feel, I think it's better if I just ignore her, I can't deal with the heartbreak of speaking like nothing ever happened between us.
I push the thoughts to the back of my mind as I walk to the kitchen, I see that Mali and my Mom had already left. I was a bit disappointed that they didnt even ask me to go with them, I grabbed my phone from the work top and scrolled through my messages, there was a few from Luke and Ashton saying they would be over soon, probably to make sure I dont say something stupid to Melissa, Im glad my friends are looking out for me but, I just need some time alone right now.
My thoughts were interrupted by my front door opening, I started to feel nervous, I wasn't even dressed and Melissa is going to come in any second now, I quickly stand up, hoping to make a quick exit to my bedroom, when I see Ashton and Luke walk in, "Hey Dude," Luke said walking to the fridge, typical. I felt my heartbeat slowing down.
"Why are you guys here?" I ask, already knowing the answer, "Just to see Cal Pal, is that a problem?" Ashton replies, looking a bit offended, "Cut the act, im not daft, I know why your here," I say taking a seat again, "We just dont want you to mess things up," Luke said, stuffing his face with a peanut butter sandwich, "I wont guys, Im just going to ignore her, act like she isnt here," I say, its the only way.
* Melissa's POV*
I run over to Mali, she looks just like she used to, "Mel, your so skinny." Mali says looking shocked, no one but my Nan knows about my eating disorder, "Well hello to you too" I laugh dragging my suitcase out to the car, I was disappointed to see that Cal wasn't here, "Wheres Calum?" I ask, finally building enough courage to ask, "Melissa, you left him, dont expect him to be fine with you" Mali said, looking quite annoyed, tears welled in my eyes as I seen her get into the car, the only friend that I have right now has just fell out with me, I dry my eyes and went into the car. The car ride felt like forever, the only conversation was what I got up to at Nan's, I felt like crawling into a hole and dying.
