The tour was only 2 weeks away now.
Which means only one and half more months of school. I was really hoping to spend summer with the guys and do crazy shit, but they'll have fun traveling the world, meeting fans and performing in front of thousands.
Calum has been trying his hardest to please me. Got me flowers, took me on special dates, told me he loved me every day, made sure to tell me I was beautiful.
I didn't mind, I liked it.
It was on a Friday afternoon when Luke came to me.
I was sitting on the couch scrolling through social medias, in particular, Twitter. Luke sat in the couch adjacent to me and stared at me.
I looked up from my phone.
"What?" I asked.
"So I want to pull a prank on Calum. You in?"
I shrugged, "Why not? What do you have in mind?"
"Well this is what I was thinking. We'll get you to take a special pill that makes you throw up. You take it, we'll get a pregnancy test that reads positive and just scare the crap out of him!" Luke explained.
"How do you know he'll get scared?" I asked.
"No guy, especially one who is about to go on a worldwide tour, would like to have his girlfriend pregnant. Trust me."
I smiled evilly, "Let's do it."
And with that the plan was in session.
Helen and I were in her kitchen. She said she had bad cravings.
"I want some Nutella," She said. "But I can also go fro a Big Mac from McDonalds."
"Strawberries dipped in chocolate sounds really good right now," She mumbled and opened the fridge.
I opened my mouth to say something but she spoke up before I could start.
"Do we have any chips?" She asked and opened the cabinet's doors.
Helen jumped up to grab the bag and opened it.
She immediately began shoving chips in her mouth.
After eating half of the bag, she chugged down nearly a whole bottle of water.
"Don't you think you've had enough?" I asked.
"You calling me fat?" She asked angrily.
I held my hands up, "No! I'm just saying."
She glared at me and ate a different bag of chips.
Luke walked through the front door clutching a McDonalds bag.
He set it on the counter and Helen ripped the bag open before devouring the Big Mac.
Luke stared at her in horror.
"Helen, are you okay?" He asked.
"I'm fine! Just have the munchies," She replied.
"Why are you acting like a bitch?" He asked.
"I'm not! I'm just hungry!" She shouted.
"Good luck with that train wreck," Luke whispered to me and pointed his thumb to Helen.
After eating her food, Helen went to her room and I followed.
"Are your cravings satisfied?" I asked and lay on her bed.
"Eh," She simply replied.
"I'm worried about you babe. You sure you're okay?" I asked.
"I feel a little weird but that's all. It occurred to me that I haven't had my-"
"What is it?" I asked.
She was in deep thought. Her eyes drifted to me and she moved her head to one side.
"No, I just thought of something," She replied.
"Like what?" I asked.
"Have you noticed how cute baby turtles are?"
I furrowed my eyebrows. How is she coming up with this stuff?
"Uh, no I haven't," I replied.
"They're just so tiny and adorable," She continued.
We ended up having a one hour discussion on how cute small animals are.
Suddenly she jumped off the bed and rushed to the bathroom.
She slammed the door shut and I hurried to the door.
I swung it open and Helen was hugging the toilet and hurling.
She coughed and flushed the toilet.
I helped her up and she went to the sink to brush her teeth. She gargled with mouthwash various times.
When she was finally done, I hugged her from behind.
I rested my chin on the top of her head.
"Are you okay, babe? Felling a little better?" I asked.
"I hate throwing up," She mumbled. "Hang on, I have to tell Luke something."
She left my grasp and I followed her into her room.
I heard the door close behind her and I sat on her bed.
Helen didn't seem to have a fever. Or sick at all.
After a couple of minutes she came back.
"I gotta pee," She told me and rushed past me and into the bathroom. She locked the door behind her and I waited.
I tapped my foot.
I started getting anxious so I paced the floor.
Something's up, I finally concluded.
No, I denied.
The bathroom door slowly opened.
Helen stood there.
She was looking at the ground.
"Yea? Babe, what's wrong?" I asked carefully.
"I have something to tell you."
"What is it?" I asked.
"I'm....i'm pregnant Calum."
My heart stopped.
I was speechless.
I didn't know how to react.
"What?" I asked releasing the breath I didn't know I was holding.
"I'm pregnant and you're the father." She said.
"How? I put a condom on when we had sex!" I ran my fingers through my hair.
"I don't know! It must have broke," She replied.
"Are you sure you're pregnant?" I asked.
"The damn test says so!" She yelled and threw the plastic tube at my chest.
It bounced off harmlessly and I picked it up off the ground.
Sure enough the small oval revealed positive.
"Helen what are we gonna do? I'm going on tour in a couple of days!" I said.
"I know Calum! I don't know what we're gonna do!" She collapsed on the ground and burst out crying. "I'm sorry, Calum. I'm sorry I ruined your life. No teenage boy should ever go through fatherhood at a young age. I'll just abort the baby," She said and sobbed,
"No, no don't do that." I kneeled in front of her. "I am one hundred percent against abortion. What you have in here," I put my hand on her stomach, "Is life. You're carrying life. It takes a boy to create a baby, but a man to raise one. Keep the baby. I want you to have my baby. Our baby."
"Are you sure?" She asked.
"I'm absolutely sure. I'll put the 'Hood' in 'fatherhood,'" I said and wiped her tears.
She giggled and I helped her up.
I kissed her.
I'm going to start a family with the girl I love.
I smiled at her. A true genuine smile.
"One more thing Calum," She said.
"Yea?" I asked.
"THIS IS ALL A PRANK!" She shouted.
Luke came into the room, he held his phone up. He was recording and laughing his ass off.
So was Helen.
"Wait what?" I asked.
"It's all a prank!" Luke and Helen said in unison.
"How? You threw up and the test read positive!" I said.
"Luke gave me a special pill that made me hurl. As for the test, we just borrowed the test from our Mom," Helen explained as she laughed.
"But you were crying," I said still in shock.
"It's called acting and crying on command. Also I thought about sad dog movies," She replied.
"So you're really not pregnant?" I asked.
"No! Calum you know I'm not good kids," She laughed.
"Told you it was a good prank," Luke spoke up.
"You're the mastermind behind this?" I asked and pointed to Luke.
He laughed and nodded.
"I can't believe this," I said.
"I'm sorry but Luke had a great idea and I was a part of it," Helen said.
I laughed, "You two got me good."
"I'm so glad I got this on video!" Luke said. "I'm going to show it to the guys." He ran downstairs.
I turned to Helen.
I glared at her but she only giggled.
"Can't believe you actually fell for it," She said.
"You made it sound believable!" I replied.
"I'm sorry Cal," She kissed my cheek.
"Yea, Yea," I said but hugged her.
"You know I love you Calum."
"I know, Helen. Love you too, but after that little prank, I don't trust you when it comes to certain things."
She laughed once more before kissing me.
