Have you ever felt so irritated you feel like ripping out your hairs?
That is exactly how I feel right now. Ashton hasn't stopped talking and I feel like shoving a sock down his throat!
I focused my attention on a table. That's the table.
I opened the door. My eyes searched the place for a familiar face.
I know this is going to embarrass me but I need him.
My eyes landed on his. He was sitting next to a blond girl who is rumored to be his new girlfriend.
I made my way toward them. Calum looked away playing with his fingers. That's something he does when he gets nervous.
"Calum I need to speak to you" I said. My voice coming out shaky.
"I'm sorry but I don't know you" he spoke.
A frown formed on my face. I felt like I've been stabbed repeatedly.
"Calum please don't do this right now. I need you" I said trying to control my tears. I already seem pathetic by begging him to talk to me, the last thing I need is to cry in front of him.
"Look here! I've never seen you in my life so just leave me alone!" He snapped.
"Calum please I need you!"
"Can somebody take this girl away from me?!"
"No Calum don't do this to me!"
The tears were now falling down uncontrollably.
"Please can someone get her away from me?!" He said once again.
"Mam I'm going to have to ask you to leave" a lady spoke softly. She grabbed my arm and began leading me outside. I looked back at Calum and wiped my tears.
This is the last time I shed a tear over you Hood!
~~~~~~end of flashback~~~~~
I blinked away the tears that we're starting to form. I took out my phone and checked it once again. It's been 30 minutes since I texted my brother and he still hasn't replied. I bet he's not going to show up and he just tricked me to get me out of the house.
"Looks like my brother isn't going to show up so I better get going" I said standing up. He stood up as well.
The door was opened making our heads snap in it's direction. Three guys walked in. One was blond and the other one had pink hair. I couldn't quite see the third one since he was standing behind the one with the pink hair.
"Why don't you stay a while? My friends just got here" he asked.
"I better not" I said trying to leave.
"Ashton!" The blond one scream earning a few glances.
They made their way toward us. I need to find a way to escape these guys.
"Who's the lady?" The one with pink hair asked.
"Vanessa" I replied. The third guys' head snapped up at the mention of my name.
I felt the anger run through my veins at his sight. He looked everywhere but me and began playing with his fingers.
You should be nervous Calum.
"Vanessa these are my friends, Luke, Michael, and Calum" he introduced.
Ok so the blond one is Luke and the one with pink hair is Michael.
I gave them a small smile that faded as soon as my eyes landed on him once again.
"Can you stay with us for a bit longer? Just so the guys can get to know you?" Ashton asked.
I looked at his hopeful face.
I guess I should stay for a bit for being so mean to Ashton.
"Sure" I whispered. Calum let out an awkward cough.
I sat back down and waited until they started a conversation.
"So are you single?" The one with pink hair said wiggling his eyebrows. A small smile formed on my face.
"What?" He asked in disbelief.
"How can a girl like you be single?" Ashton asked.
Maybe the fact that I became socially awkward and refused to talk to anyone after Calum. I don't want to risk getting hurt again. I much rather die alone.
"Why is it so hard to believe?" I asked.
"Well for starters you are pretty. And you seem like a really cool person" Ashton spoke.
"Let's just say I've had bad experiences with assholes before. I rather just stay alone than cross paths with another one of them" I said sending Calum an indirect slap.
He spit out his drink all over Michael. He began coughing uncontrollably.
You keep coughing Calum!!!
"Dude are you alright?" Michael asked. Calum just nodded.
"What guy can be crazy enough to be a jerk to you?" Michael asked.
"You'd be surprised" I said looking at Calum in the eyes. A small smirk appeared on my face as I took in his nervous glare.
"Well it was nice meeting you guys" I said standing up.
"Why so soon?" Michael asked.
"I've got things to do" I said.
I grabbed my purse and made my way out the door. I let out a breath once I was outside. I did not expect him to be there. Though I am glad he did. Making him feel guilty and nervous makes me happy.
"Vanessa!" I heard his voice. I stopped walking and bit my lip to prevent any profanities from coming out. I slowly turned around and forced a smile on my face.
"Hey look, I know that what I did to you in the past was mean but-" I cut him off with my own words.
"Past? I'm sorry but I believe we've just met. I don't even have a past with you" I said pulling out his own card. A flash of hurt crossed his face.
That's right Calum. Feel the pain you made me feel. I turned around and made my way to my car. I let out another sigh and drove to my house.
Maybe I shouldn't be mean. That would just make me like him. And I don't want to be like him. I'm not gonna lie making him feel bad makes me feel good, but I don't think that is normal.
I opened the front door and entered the living room. My brother was sitting on the couch with a bag of chips on his lap.
"What is wrong with you?" I smacked his head.
He scowled at me as he rubbed the back of his head. He took another chip and placed it in his mouth.
"Why would you tell me to meet you at Starbucks and not show up then come to my house and eat my chips?!" I asked.
He smiled at me and munched away.
"Hey it worked! I got you out of the house"
"I didn't want to go out of the house! If I did I would have gone out ages ago!"
"You can't just pass your time locked up in your room! You need to continue on with your life! You can't just throw it away!"
"It's my life James! I get to decide what to do with it!"
"Well let me tell you that the choice you are making is stupid and I'm not going to let you throw all that dad has worked hard for away! Do you not realize that he put so much effort for you to achieve your dream and your just throwing it away!"
I slumped down on the couch and let his words sink in.
He's right. I need to get out of this house and start again. Even if it means having to see Calum again.
But not today I can start that tomorrow. I'm too lazy right now. I walked up to my room and let myself fall on the bed. My body instantly relaxed and my eyes closed.
