It's been about two weeks since Calum left for tour. These two weeks have been a living hell without him. Every night I cry myself to sleep, and then wake up in the morning to his text messages that make me cry.
My phone rings and takes me away from my thoughts. I sigh and answer it as I whipe my eyes. "Hello?" I answer with a shaky voice.
"Mia? Are you okay?" Calum asks.
"Yeah," I sigh. "I'm fine, just crying again."
Calum takes a deep breath and I can tell he's trying not to cry. "We're in New York now, we got to see the Statue of Liberty." He explains.
"Sounds like fun." I smile to myself. "I forgot to tell you, I'm almost finished with that song." I say.
"Great." Calum says. "Michael and I have been practicing it on the guitar."
"Why do you want me to learn the song?" I ask.
"It's a suprise." He teases.
I laugh. "Hi Mia!! We miss you!" Someone yells on the phone.
"Niall, shut up!" Someone else yells.
"Sorry I'm on the bus and Niall and Harry don't know how to keep it down." Calum laughs.
I laugh. "It's okay. I love you." I whisper.
"I love you too." Calum says. "I gotta go we're at the hotel."
I sigh. "Bye, I love you more."
"Yeah yeah, I love you way more." Calum says.
I laugh and hang up the phone. I fix my beanie and put on my combat boots. I jog downstairs to find Katie in the living room. "Can I go out for a walk?" I ask.
"Sure," Katie says. "Take your jacket."
I sigh and take my jacket. I walk outside along the sidewalk. I walk past Calums house and almost start crying again. I take a deep breath and walk down to the small coffee shop. I walk in and a random girl comes up to me. She looks about my age.
"Are you Calum Hoods girlfriend? Mia?" She asks.
"Yeah, do I know you?" I ask. She looks familiar but I don't think I know her.
"I'm the girl who got her hair stuck in your beanie. In London remember?" She asks. "Ashley."
"Oh I remember you!" I smile. "Do you live around here or something?"
"No, I'm just visiting my family here." Ashley smiles.
"Let me get a coffee and I'll sit with you okay?" I say. Ashley nods and I order a vanilla iced coffee. I sit down in front of Ashley at her table.
"Why didn't you go on tour with the guys?" She asks.
"My dad died," I sigh. "My aunt lives with me now and we thought it would be better for Eve and I to stay home for the last month."
"I'm so sorry." Ashley explains. "I heard about it I just never knew if it was true."
"Well it is." I sigh. "What about you? Get your hair stuck in anyone else's beanies?" I laugh.
Ashley laughs. "Nope, only yours. Last week I went to their concert in London though. Calum and Michael were getting upset when they were playing Amnesia."
I gulp to stop from crying. "I know. Calum told me about it. He'll be back in two weeks and his birthday is next week and I can't wait." I smile.
After about a half hour of talking Ashley and I finally left the coffee shop. I sigh as I reach my house and walk inside. "Eve called." Katie says from the kitchen. "After dinner she would like you to go over there."
I nod. "Yeah, I'll go over there." I say as I grab my plate. "At the coffee shop I met a fan I talked to while we were on tour before. She lives in London and has family here." I explain.
"That's nice." Katie smiles as she sits at the table with me. "You know, I've seen how depressed you are lately and I just want to make sure you're okay."
"I'm fine." I say as I stare at my plate. "It just sucks with everyone gone, especially Calum."
Katie sighs. "I know it's hard."
I sigh and start eating. I catch Katie staring at my wrists. "I'm not doing it again. I promised Calum."
Katie nods. "I'm sorry, I'm just worried about you."
"Katie, my life sucks. Both of my parents are dead. Calum is getting more famous by the day. I'm getting a shit load of hate on twitter. I have to go back to school soon, and everyone is going to bully me like before." I exclaim. I leave my plate on the table and stand up. "And it all sucks so much and I don't know what to do about it, because I made that promise to Calum."
I jog upstairs into my room and put on my white sweater. I grab my phone charger and jog out of the house. I walk down to Eves house that's about a block away and knock on the door. Eve opens the door an I walk inside. I take off my shoes and then jog upstairs into her room. I plop down on her bed and sigh.
"Everything fucking sucks so much." I say as she shuts the door.
"First, keep it down because my brother is next door. Second, I know it sucks. It sucks so much but there is only two weeks more." Eve says. Trying to look on the bright side of things.
"Two more weeks of hell." I say and shove my face in her pillow. Eve sighs and I hear someone calling her skype on her computer. Once the call goes through I hear Michaels voice. "Is Calum there?" I ask.
"No, he went to the coffee shop to get us coffee. He should be back any minute." Michael says.
I sigh and look through twitter on my phone. Seeing all the hate again makes me want to break down. I take a deep breath as I zone out of Eves and Michaels conversation.
"Calums back." I hear Michael say.
I get up and stand behind Eve. Calum comes over to the computer and stands behind Michael. "Hey beautiful." He smiles.
I smile back at him and sigh. "Mia's had a horrible day today." Eve says for me.
"Not all horrible. I saw that Ashley girl at the coffee shop because she has family here. But then I got in a fight with Katie." I explain.
"I'll text you okay?" Calum says as he pulls out his phone. I nod and go back over to Eves bed.
I pull out my phone again and text Calum.
C- what was the fight about??
Me- she wanted to know if I was okay and I explained to her why everything sucks. How I'm getting all the hate, how your getting more and more famous day by day, how it sucks not having any parents, how it sucks that I have to go back to school soon and I'm going to be bullied more and more.
C- it's going to be okay. I love you more than anything in this world.
Me- I love you too... More than anything.
Me- I promise.
After texting Calum for I don't know how long Eve finally drags me off the bed and I groan as I fall onto the floor. "What the hell Eve!" I yell.
"You need to get happy again. We both have to." She says.
"I don't fucking wanna go anywhere." I groan as I get back up.
Just then her older brother opens the door. "I'm going to tell mom your swearing." He says.
"Jacob, it's not like you don't swear. Plus it was all Mia." Eve says.
"Bull shit. You were swearing earlier when you were talking to Michael." Jacob says.
"You just swore." I smirk.
"Fine. I won't tell mom." Jacob rolls his eyes.
"Can I take Mia to the mall?" Eve asks.
Jacob sighs. "Yeah go ahead. Be back before mom comes home."
I groan and look at Eve as Jacob leaves the room. "Do we seriously need to go to the mall?"
"Yes, now come on." She says as she grabs her phone and car keys.
I sigh and follow her out to her car. When we get to the mall I immediately head for hot topic. Eve buys a new pair of skinny jeans while I buy a Led Zeppelin shirt and a pair of black skinny jeans. We shop at some of Eves favorite stores for a while until we get tired of shopping.
"Starbucks?" Eve asks. I nod and we both go Into Starbucks. "Two capachinos please." Eve orders.
"Coming right- wait, your Michael Clifford's girlfriend." The teenage girl says behind the counter. "And your Calum Hoods girlfriend." She says pointing to me.
I laugh and nod. "Yes we are."
"It's so nice to meet you both." She smiles. She then goes over to make our coffees.
Eve looks at me and laughs. We both laugh and pay for our coffee. We then walk out to Eves car. "Feel any better?" Eve asks as she takes a sip of her coffee and drives away.
"A little I guess. It still really sucks and you and I both know that." I say as I turn on the radio.
Eve nods and we both go back to her house. When we pull in the drive way we see that her mom is home and Eve sighs. We get our bags and walk into the house. "Hey Mrs. Roberts." I say as we walk into the house.
"Hi Mia." She smiles. "Eve, I told you not to leave the house."
"Jacob said I could go to the mall. And you said that he was in charge because he's older." Eve smiles at the end.
Eves mom sighs and walks into the kitchen. Eve and I both laugh and walk up to her room. "Netflix?" She asks.
"Netflix." I smile as I lay on her bed.
HINT: I can't wait until the next chapter. Love you allxx
