"On Holidaaayyyy!" Helen shouted into the microphone.
We were playing Guitar Hero. Ashton was on the drums, Luke and Michael had the guitars and Helen was singing.
The plasma TV had all the colors to hit and the lyrics to Green Day's 'Holiday.'
She had the Green Day version of Guitar Hero with all their greatest songs.
We were in the 'Video game room' or so Helen called it. I was sitting on the couch, laughing at how ridiculous they looked.
They finished the song.
"Helen that was such a punk scream," Michael said.
"I know, I didn't know I had it in me," She replied.
"She can do more than do a punk scream," I said.
Helen glared at me but I only smirked at her.
"Who's next?" She asked.
"I'll go," Luke said and took the microphone.
"See and you guys can be the actual Green Day, with only three band members," I said.
Helen plopped down on the spot next to me.
Luke decided on 'Basket Case.'
"Look watch Ash while he's drumming, he makes funny faces," I whispered to Helen.
We both stared at Ashton as he banged on the drums. Then we started laughing.
"You're right," Helen said laughing.
We watched them for a while.
"I'll be right back," Helen said and got up before leaving out the door.
I heard a simple ding and looked down at my phone. It wasn't mine.
I saw that Helen left her phone on the couch.
My heart said not to do it, but my curiosity took me over.
I grabbed her phone and clicked the home button.
She got a text from someone called 'Andy.'
I furrowed my eyebrows and right swiped. She had a passcode.
Any important dates that I know. What about the day I asked her to be my girlfriend?
What day was it?
I began thinking hard.
I typed in 0105.
The phone unlocked and sent me to her home screen.
I clicked on the messages app.
Before I went to the messages of this 'Andy' fella, I went to what she had me under.
The name she had me under was 'Calum.' Just simple 'Calum' with a heart eye emoji.
No babe or baby.
At least she doesn't have me under 'Daddy.'
We both don't like Daddy kinks and I know that she hates them.
I went to Andy's messages.
Andy: Hey there gorgeous.
Andy: Please respond
Andy: What's up
Andy: How you been?
Andy: I love you
Andy: Give me a chance
Andy: I swear I'll make it worth it
The most recent one was...
Andy: I still love you
I was fuming.
I scrolled to the top and saw that she replied to the texts.
Andy: You're very beautiful
Helen: Thank you, you're very handsome yourself.
I clenched my jaw and stormed out of the room.
I went up the stairs.
"Helen!" I called.
"In here," She said from her room.
I walked in and she was pulling her hair into a high ponytail.
"What's up?" She asked.
"What's this?" I asked and held her phone up.
"My phone," She replied.
"No, I mean what's 'Thank you, you're very handsome yourself' ? What the fuck, Helen!"
She took the phone from my hands and looked at it.
"Calum, that was a long time ago!"
"Oh really? Because apparently, he still loves you!"
"But did I say it back?"
"That's not the point."
"Then what is the point? You think I'm cheating on you?"
I looked away.
"You do, don't you?"
She looked at me with eyes filled with pain and anger.
"You think I'm fucking cheating on you. Calum I love you, I would never do that. Especially to you. Remember on Huntington Beach, I told you I trusted you whole heartily. One hundred percent trust you. I trust you enough to be around my phone! I have nothing to hide. But do you trust me? Apparently not. I let you take my damn virginity! And I didn't even ask if you were a virgin or not."
She exhaled. "Check the text I sent him Calum."
"That was back in December, before I even met you! I was single at the time, it was after my breakup with Brad. I'm way to deep in love with you to cheat on you, Calum. Keep my phone, look through it. I want to see if you trust me as much as I trust you. Maybe I was wrong about this relationship. Maybe it could have never worked out."
Her words shot me directly in the heart and I realized I screwed up.
"I'm done here," She said before storming out the door.
I heard her footsteps going down the stairs.
The rattling of keys is what made me bolt down the stairs.
She was already out the door when I was halfway down.
I opened the door and she was getting into her car. Before I could reach her she raced out of the driveway, tires screeching.
"Dammit!" I yelled.
I should have paid more attention to the text! Now she's gone, mad at me because of my quick to judge self. And I can't reach her because I have her phone!
I know she would never cheat, but why did I accuse her of doing it?
I'm just a jealous fool
I fell to my knees. I have to fix this.
I won't let her slip through my fingers, not like Brad did.
Can't believe this! Fucking shit.
I gotta get her back.
No matter what it takes, I'll fix this. Even if it takes starting all over again.
I looked out onto the driveway she drove out of.
"I do trust you, Helen. I love you."
