I stepped on the gas pedal and raced out of the driveway. The tires squealed under the power I was putting on them.
Angry tears fell from my eyes. How can Calum think I'm cheating on him?
"I fucking knew I should have deleted those texts!" I shouted to myself.
I stopped at a red light and began hitting the steering wheel.
"Dammit Calum!" I screamed and rested my head against the wheel.
I remember his angry tone he had when he called my name. And how he looked away when I questioned him.
I told him the truth. The whole truth. I didn't lie to him or tell him 'It's not what it looks like.' I told him the damn truth.
Someone honked behind me, I looked up and the green light turned to red again. I sighed.
I rolled my window down. A car pulled up beside me.
"Pay attention next time!" He shouted.
I looked over.
"Oh fuck you!" I shouted before flipping him off.
I shook my head and reached over to get my phone but remembered I left it with Calum.
The light turned green and I drove off.
I went to the only person I know who would hear me out, talk to me, and give me advice.
The ride to the hospital was slow. I got a parking space and got out.
I speed walked to the lobby.
Before going to the elevator, the lady at the front desk gave me a visitor pass. I pressed my finger to the elevator's button and waited for it to close.
When the doors finally closed, I felt the elevator going up.
I had my head rested against the mirrored walls.
I opened my eyes just as the doors opened. I stepped out of the elevator and went to Adin's door.
I turned and Athena stood in front of me.
"Hi, Athena, is Adin awake?" I asked.
"Yea, he is, he's eating. Is everything okay?"
"I'm good. Just really need to talk to him."
"Well go on in, he won't mind."
I nodded and smiled before opening the door.
I stepped in and closed it behind me.
"Stupid goddamn dumb shit mother fucker," I said.
"Whoa, what happened?" Adin asked.
He had a bowl of fruit sitting in front of him. Guardians of the Galaxy was playing on the TV in his room, he pressed pause.
He looked better. Stronger. His eyes were wide open and for the first time he looked healthy again. His dark hair was pressed against his forehead.
"Why are you angry?" He asked.
He knew that when I was pissed off, I cussed a lot.
"Feeling better?" I asked.
"Yea, don't feel like shit anymore. My body isn't constantly throbbing anymore and they finally got me off that strong medicine. I slept for so much, I feel reborn."
I laughed and plopped down on the seat next to his bed.
"So are you gonna tell me what happened?" he asked.
I sighed, "It's Calum."
"What did he do?"
I told him the whole story, from my conversation with Calum to the texts and me running out of the house.
"Andy is still bugging you?" he asked.
"What do I do now Adin? I practically told him that our relationship was a mistake. Who does that?! After the way he's been treating me, I shouldn't have told him that."
"But he accused you of cheating. Even though you didn't cheat on him, I know you'd never do that. So he should have paid more attention and you should have deleted those texts. So it's basically both of your faults."
I grunted. I hate it when he's right.
"See, I'm correct," he said.
I gave him a weird look and he returned it.
"Look, if you both love each other and I know you do, then you'll forgive each other. Is this your first argument?"
"Then what are you bitching about? Fights are a part of a relationship. If you don't have problems, that's a problem."
"I know, it's just I don't want these arguments to end badly or end the relationship." I explained.
"You mean you don't want it to end like it did with Bradly?"
I nodded and tears fell from my eyes.
I quickly wiped them from my eyes, "Dammit, why do I cry so much?"
"You're sensitive Helen, you try to mask your true feeling by acting tough and stuff. Which you are, you're pretty damn intimidating and scary but when someone hurts you, you cry and you're fragile and emotional. I know Helen, I've known you for almost ten years."
"You're right," I said.
"Hell yea, I'm right."
"Want some?" he asked and lifted his fruit bowl with his good arm
I nodded and took the diced watermelon.
He pressed play on the movie and we watched and ate tropical fruit.
The movie ended and all the fruit was gone.
"You need to let all your sorrow go," Adin said. "I can tell your still upset."
"Look, in that bag," He pointed to a black gift bag. "There is a bottle. Can you get it for me?"
I furrowed my eyebrows but went over to the bag. I reached inside and grabbed the SmartWater bottle.
I sat back down and handed him the bottle.
"Drink some," He said.
I unscrewed the lid and and brought the bottle to my lips.
The liquid, that wasn't water, tasted weird and burned in my throat.
"What is this?" I asked.
"Vodka," He said and gave me a mischievous smile. "Thought my might need it."
I nodded and put the cap back on.
"Charlize, Madison, and Taylor brought it for me," he said.
"They would," I said laughing.
If you ever need to get alcohol, those three girls would hook you up with wine, beer, tequila and other stuff.
"Can I have it?" I asked.
"Sure, I'll just tell them to bring me another bottle," He replied.
"Time to drown out my sorrow," I said and took a swig from the bottle.
I was laughing hysterically at something Adin said.
I drank a quarter of the bottle.
Suddenly the door flew open.
Calum, Luke, Michael, and Ashton stood there.
Yepp. So I re-read my story and realized I made so many grammatical mistakes and I cringe every time I stumble upon one of those. But I type fast, still it's embarrassing for a high school student. My english teacher would be disappointed in me. I highly doubt I'll update tonight again so hope you liked the update and don't cry because your OTP is falling apart. Love ya guys! :-) xx -HelenHood
