I woke up to 'Sex' by The 1975 playing downstairs.
The smell of meat cooking made my mouth water. Reluctantly I crawled out of the warm bed and made my way downstairs.
I was greeted by Billie Joe, who jumped up until I gave him my attention.
'And this is how it starts, take your shoes off in the back of my van. Yea my shirt looks so good, when it's just hanging off your back."
I heard the beginning lyrics to the song and walked into the kitchen. Helen was standing at the stove, flipping a sausage pattie while Calum had his arms around her stomach. They were both smiling.
They looked so happy. Especially Calum, I remember when he was moping around, always upset, but now he's happy.
I would have smiled too, if I wasn't so hungry.
"Morning, mate," Calum said.
"Mhmm," I replied and sat on one of the chairs in front of the counter.
"Here you go, Luke," Helen said before sliding a plate across the smooth surface. I stopped the plate with my hand and looked at the English muffin in front of me.
I immediately began inhaling it.
Calum sat in the chair next to me. He got an English muffin too.
"When did Dad get home, do you know?" I asked Helen.
"I actually don't know. I fell asleep at one, so maybe he got home after that," She replied.
"One? Didn't we all go to our rooms at 11? Were you really up for another hour?" I asked.
"Oh, yeah. I was catching up one some YouTube videos and Tumblr," She replied.
She slid two more plates across the counter. I was about to get one of them when Helen slapped my hand away.
"The fuck was that for?" I asked.
"They're for Michael and Ashton," She replied before taking my plate. "You want another one you could have just asked."
She put another muffin on my after taking it and handed me my plate back.
Billie gave a loud bark.
"What does he want?" Calum asked.
"He wants to go outside," Helen replied before disappearing from the kitchen and into the hallway.
Calum was humming to 'Sex.'
Suddenly he started giggling.
"What's so funny?" I asked.
"Nothing, just something I thought of," he said.
I raised my eyebrow at him but didn't question it any further.
Helen came back into the kitchen with Billie Joe at her feet.
"So what are we going to do today?" Michael asked once he reached the bottom of the stairs.
"Well, Ash wants to go to Universal Studios, so we're going there," Helen said.
"Wait you were actually serious?" Ashton asked behind Michael.
"Yea, you think I was kidding?" She said.
"Let's do it!" Ashton exclaimed before grabbing his muffin and taking a bite from it.
After eating and everyone got suited for the day. We all jumped into Helen's car and drove off to yet another adventure.
Universal was so fun!
We rode about six rides, due to the incredibly long lines. It was at eleven when we went back home.
"I thought the Jurrasic Park ride was going to be slow, but no! That drop was a plot twist," Michael said.
"But it was fun! Wasn't your adrenaline pumping after that?" I asked.
"Yea! I wanted to go again even though I'm not much of a roller coaster person!" Calum said.
"What an adrenaline filled day!" Ashton exclaimed. He seemed the most excited out of all of us.
"Yep," Luke said.
We went on The Jurrasic Park, Transformers, The Mummy, King Kong, Water World, and Despicable Me ride. It was still and incredible day.
We reached my car after walking for several minutes and got in. I started the engine and drove out of the parking lot.
On the way back home, we passed by The Staples Center.
"How cool would it be to perform in an arena like this," Ashton said and pointed to the Staples Center that was advertising a Lakers game. Which happens to be my favorite Basketball team.
"That'd be awesome," Luke said.
"I mean, the Staples Center is okay, but I think you should dream big! Like The Forum!" I said.
"The Forum?" Michael asked.
"Oh I've heard of that arena!" Calum said.
"Look, I'll show it to you," I said and drove towards Inglewood.
After minutes of driving, I stopped the car outside The Forum. The building was red with white arches.
"This place is huge," Michael said.
"It is," Ashton agreed.
"It has seats for nearly 12,000+ people," I said.
"Man, how insane would it be if we sell this place out one day?" Calum asked.
"There's a thing called the Red Wall inside, so when you perform, your band's name '5 Seconds of Summer' will be painted on there, for everyone to see. Green Day, Nickleback, Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, and many more great names have performed here," I said.
They were staring at the arena in awe.
"Like I said, dream big," I finished.
"This is amazing," Luke said.
"Now, should we go back to my house?" I asked.
"Yea, let's go," Ashton replied.
We piled into the car once again and drove away from the arena.
The car's headlight and the building's lights made everything look beautiful.
Minutes later, I pulled into the circular driveway. We got out and I unlocked the front door.
"It seems like you only come here to eat, sleep and then you guys leave. Where did you go this time?" Dad asked.
"Universal," I replied.
"I can see that," He said and pointed to the Despicable Me Minions Luke and Ashton were holding.
"Are you going somewhere else tomorrow?" he asked.
"Maybe Disney Land," I replied. "How was the engagement party?"
"It was great. They already began to plan the wedding," He replied.
"Boys, if you don't mind, I want to talk to Helen privately," Dad said.
"Yea no problem," Ashton said.
Luke gave me a look that said 'What did you do?'
'I Don't know.' I replied with facial expressions.
Fear curled up my spine.
Unless he found out about me and Calum! What if he got home early and we didn't hear him?
No, Billie would have barked.
But still! What if he somehow found out that we had sex!
The guys went upstairs and I followed my Dad outside.
The pool's lights were on giving the water and aqua color.
"Look, I trust you. I respect the decisions you make, because I know you'll make the right ones." He started.
"What I mean is that I know that Calum has been sleeping in your room."
He laughed slightly.
"Is that it?" I asked.
"No, you still have those condoms I bought you before you left right?"
I blushed like crazy. He got me condoms for my seventeenth birthday! He gave them to me two days before I left to Australia. I, of course, left them here in my California home. I wouldn't think I'd need them, but then I met Calum.
"Yes, Dad, I still have them," I said.
"Well use them dammit, last thing I want you to end up being is pregnant. I can't afford to be a grandpa."
I snorted, "Don't worry, Dad, you know I don't like children."
He sighed in relief.
"Not sure about Luke though," I mumbled.
"He still has his life ahead of him, I highly doubt he'd want any kids at the moment."
"True," I nodded.
"So be careful, be safe, always have Calum use protection, and make wise choices. And don't do stupid stuff," He said.
"Yea, sure, dad."
"I promise," I said.
He pulled me into a hug and I hugged him back.
"See, I raised you right," He said.
I snorted and pulled away.
"Yea, you did, dad," I said and walked back inside.
I walked up the stairs.
I turned and felt someone grab my arm and was pulled into a room.
"What did Dad say?" Luke asked.
"He just told me something," I replied.
"Like what?" He asked.
"God, Luke if you really want to know why didn't you just eavesdrop?"
"Mum said eavesdropping is bad."
"We're brother and sister I don't think it would matter."
"But seriously what did Dad say?"
"He said to be careful and always be safe. And for Calum to use protection."
He started coughing.
"Yea just keep that in mind," I said and left his room.
I went into my room and felt strong arms wrap around my waist and pull my into a kiss.
"Everything okay?" Calum asked.
"Yea," I replied and ran my fingers through Calum's dark hair.
I turned the lights on.
"What did your Dad say?" he asked.
"Well, he found out that you were sleeping in my room," I replied.
He looked at me, shocked.
"Don't worry he said he doesn't mind."
He sighed in relief and I laughed.
"But he did say to use protection," I said.
He laughed, "Really?!"
"Well, that's one thing we did right," He said and crushed his lips to mine once again.
I gotta add some drama to this story! Especially between Calum and Helen. This story needs action and tears, screaming and fighting!!! Gotta catch ya attention. So look forward to the next chapter. Love you all! :-) xx -HelenHood
