I stood 10 feet away from him.
He had a huge smile spread across his face.
I glared at him.
"Helen! You're back!" He beamed and rushed forward to hug me.
Before he could even touch me, I felt someone pull me away.
It was Luke. He held me tightly and both Michael and Ashton were holding him back.
I understand why, Luke was raging mad.
I turned my attention away from Luke and to Brad.
Calum stood in front of him. He was several inches taller than Brad, but Brad didn't back down.
"Don't you ever fucking touch her again, got me?" Calum asked dangerously calm.
"Who the hell are you?" Brad asked.
"I'm Helen's boyfriend," Calum replied.
"What are you talking about? She's mine, always has been and always will," Brad said.
I wanted to scream.
How can he be so stupid?
"Yours?" Calum laughed, "She used to be yours. Not anymore."
I released myself from Luke's tight grip.
I looked up at him, "It's okay," I said.
His eyes kept the same rage as he continued glaring at the ex in front of me.
I got in between Calum and Brad. I placed a hand on Calum's cheek and drove his attention away from Brad.
He looked down at me.
His eyes softened.
"Calm down, please," I said knowing that this would get nowhere if it involved violence. "Let me talk. I could do this."
"I just don't want anything bad to happen to you," He whispered.
"Nothing will happen to me," I said.
Calum backed away and I turned to Brad.
"Brad, yes, I am back. No, I am not here to get back together. We ended two months ago."
"But I want you back," he said.
I laughed, "You want me back? I specifically remember the day I told you I was leaving to Australia, you said 'Leave, do whatever you want to do. I don't care anymore bitch.' Remember Brad? I sure as hell do."
He clenched his jaw.
"That girl you were dating for a year, that was never me. You built that girl, you controlled her. She was your dream girl. My closet is full of colorful crop tops and high waisted shorts that you chose and liked, that was not me. This," I motioned to my outfit of black jeans, Green Day shirt and black converse, "This is me. Yes, we were the power couple at this school, but I never enjoyed it, you were the one who enjoyed the attention. I hated it and you knew it. So guess what? I'm over this and I'm over you. I am not gonna waste my life away. This is my Independence Day."
"Is that all?" Brad asked.
"No. I didn't come for that. You know Adin right? My best friend of almost 9 years. He's been there for me my whole life, and now he's in the hospital. Anyway after you left my house and you left me there, alone, crying and in pain, Adin came to check on me. He's the one that was there, not you, Adin was. And I knew that you always hated him. You hated it when I talked to him, when I texted him and when I hung out with him. You hated him with a passion. And I knew that you would be the one to put him in that hospital bed," I stepped closer to him. "Not very brave of you to round up a couple of your buddies and have them attack Adin. You knew Adin took boxing and that he was stronger than you ever where. You're nothing but a coward, Brad. I don't know what I ever saw in you."
"Maybe I should have hit you harder the day you left," Brad said.
I glared at him, "You little piece of sh-" I was cut off when I felt his hand connect to my cheek.
Before I could react, Luke was already tackling Brad to the concrete floor.
Luke started throwing punches.
What. The. Fuck.
Once of Brad's friends, Jasper, was about to hit Luke, But Calum was at Luke's side and threw Jasper off.
Michael and Ashton also got involved.
Soon I was standing in complete chaos of grunts, punches, and constant cussing.
I was shocked. Mostly because I didn't know that Luke, Michael, Calum, or even Ashton would ever get in a fight.
"Helen are you okay!" Taylor asked.
The girls rushed to my side.
"What a douchebag," Brianna grumbled.
"I'm fine," I said.
"So Brad is the reason why Adin is in the hospital?" Alyssa asked.
"Yea," I replied.
"Can I punch him?" Madison asked.
The girls laughed.
"I have to stop the fight," I said.
I saw that the four guys were dominating their opponents.
A crowd had surrounded us.
I saw that two guys had a hold of Calum. One had his arms behind his back while the other one was punching him in the stomach.
"Oh hell no," I growled.
I ran towards him.
I turned David-Calum's attacker-around and thrust my hand upward. I nailed him right in the nose.
Calum turned around and punched the guy, who fell to the ground.
"You okay?" I asked and placed a hand on his cheek.
"Yea," He groaned.
Michael and Ashton came towards us.
"Where's Luke?" I asked.
"Let's go get him," Ashton said.
We pulled Luke off Brad.
Luke had blood on the corner of his mouth.
Brad struggled to get up after he got the shit punched out of him.
"You're no man," Ashton said.
"No man would ever hurt a woman," Michael added.
"You fucked up and let a perfect girl slip through your fingers. But I gotta say thank you, cause without you, we wouldn't be together. So thank you for being an asshole," Calum said.
"Don't ever go near my sister or we are going to have to relive this moment," Luke said.
"You're Luke?" Brad asked.
"Yes," Luke replied.
"And Brad," I said. He looked at me and I kicked him right in the penis, "That's for Adin."
Calum punched Brad and he fell back, "That too was for Adin."
"Calum you knocked him out!" I said.
"Oops," He said but it sounds like he meant to knock him out.
"Helen the teachers are coming!" Katy said.
"Oh shit," I cursed.
"Go, Helen, we'll make a story up," Charlize said.
"Yea, hurry! They'll probably call the cops on here since you're no longer a student," Madison added.
"Okay, Bye guys, text me!" I said.
"We will," Orla said.
"Let's go," I told them.
We all sprinted off the campus and back onto the parking lot.
I spotted my car and ran faster.
we reached the car and I unlocked it. I had my forehead rested on the top of the car.
I felt hands on my waist.
It was Calum.
I turned around and buried my face in his chest.
He tilted my chin up and his thumb grazed my cheek.
"That hurts. Sorry." I said.
"Why are you apologizing?" Calum asked.
"Helen are you okay?" Luke asked.
"Yea, my cheek just hurts," I replied.
Calum lightly kissed my cheek.
His lips were warm and gentle.
Like a feather.
I smiled slyly at him.
"Never thought I'd get into a fight," Ashton said.
"Yea, it felt like one of those old western bar fights. Except there was no upbeat piano music," Michael said.
I laughed, "True."
"My abs hurt," Calum said.
"Yea you took a beating from those two dudes," Ashton said.
"And my knuckles are throbbing," Luke added.
"That's cause you punched the shit out of Brad," I said.
"That was pretty awesome," Calum said.
"I was," I agreed and laughed.
"What time is it?" Luke asked.
"1: 30," Michael replied.
"How about, we go to my house, clean up so we won't be covered in blood, then go back to the hospital and then go eat somewhere? Maybe Citywalk?" I asked.
"Sounds like a plan," Luke said.
"Okay, now lets go before the principal comes out here," I said and we all got in the car.
I started the engine, backed out of the parking space, and sped out of the lot.
What a day. But it hasn't ended there.
