I managed to get Hannah out of the school without any questions asked.I drove her home and told her to call Michael,to tell him that she was okay.Hannah didn't feel too comfortable telling him about the pregnancy that she was still unsure about.
I drove back to school to pick up my homework assignments.As I neared one of the four stairwells that led to the second floor,I heard talking.
"Why were you talking to Katie,I thought I told you to stay away from her?"
"I wasn't talking to her."
The voices sounded a lot like Calum's and Ashton's.Why was Calum being so possessive over me.Ashton was after all my friend.I kept listening.
"Yeah whatever.I know your lying to me Irwin.You better make sure that she's at that party this weekend."
"What If she's not?"
"Them I'm coming after you,and I won't take pity on you like I did last time."
I heard footsteps starting to move to where I was.I ran around the corner and hid there until I was sure the coast was clear.What did Calum mean by 'like the last time?' I couldn't believe that Calum was being like this towards his friends.I quickly went to my classes had got my work before heading out to the parking lot,afterI was sure that Calum was gone anyways.
I stopped in my tracks and slowly turned.There he was,Calum,leaning up against his car.He had his black raybans on and he didn't look happy.I walked towards him,he walked to the other side of his car and opened the passenger car door.
"No,I'm not getting in with you."
I nodded and got in to his car.He seemed pissed and from the threat that he gave ashton,I didn't want the same.He hopped in and slammed on the breaks.He sped up the car faster as we made our way onto a highway.
"Where are you taking me?"
"Don't worry about it.You'll see when we get there."
It was silent for most of the ride to wherever he was planning on taking me,until he finally spoke.
"How much did you hear?"
"What are you talking about?"
"Don't play with me Katie,I know you overheard me and ashton."
"I only heard you threaten him and what is up with you? Why are you blackmailing people? That's pretty sick.Who in the hell blackmails their own friends!"
I looked over to see him smirking.
"What the he'll are you smirking for?"
"You shouldn't judge someone before you know the whole story."
"Says the guy who blackmails his friends and threatens mine.You know what,let me out of this car now!"
"I may not be the nicest guy but I'm not gonna leave you out here on a highway basically in the middle of no where."
"I'll find a way back."
"Right,would you please just sit back and enjoy the ride?"
I sat back in the seat and looked out of the window,my arms folded up to my chest.All of the trees we passed were just a blur.
"Are you going to kill me and dump my body somewhere?"
"Do you really think that I would do that?"
"I don't know,would you?"
"You really should stop judging."
"I'm not judgi-"
He shot me a look before putting his eyes back in the road.Maybe he was right,I was judge but I had a good reason to.If he could threaten to hurt ashton,What's stopping him from hurting me?
We pulled onto a dusty,treeless cliff.I gulped as he got out and come to my side and held open the door.I got out and watched as he walked towards the cliff.
"So your going to push me off of a cliff?"
He rolled his eyes and shoved his hands into his pockets.Calum nudged his head in the direction of the cliff signaling for me to follow.He stopped midway and I stood beside him.
"So why are we at a cliff?"
"Because this place is special to me.This is where I come to think about different stuff that happens in my life."
"Like plotting murders?"
"No-what is with you and this murder shit Katie? I'm not going to kill you."
"Then what was the point of bringing me?"
"I wanted to spend time with you alone but you're ruining it with all if your nonsense."
"Whatever,take me home."
"Are you seri-"
He held his hands up in surrender.We walked back to his car and got in.The thirty minute ride back was quiet.He turned some music on.I felt kind of bad.He was right,I was judging him too quickly but I had every right to.
We stopped in front of my house.It was about 9:35 when we got there.As I proceeded to get out,I felt his hand grab my wrist.
"Will I see you at the party?"
I shrugged.I really didn't know if I should go.I didn't trust Calum anymore but at the same time it was ashton who payed the price if I didn't go.
"Yeah I'll be there."
"Great,I'll see you there."
He shot me a smile before I got out.I smiled back.I walked into the house and looked around.My mom wasn't home.I ran upstairs and got into the shower.Today was indescribable.
I didn't know what to think about Calum anymore.I was kinda scared of him to be honest.He seemed like he had his heart in the right place but his mind I swear it was somewhere else.
•4 days later•
Hannah showed up at my house after school.I didn't know how she knew where I lived,buy come to think about it she did know ashton.She was dressed in a slutty witch costume.
"Hey,what are you doing here?"
"I bought you a costume."
She opened a large plastic bag to reveal a pretty aqua two-piece costume with matching slippers.I gasped.
"Jasmine from Aladdin! how'd you know?"
"I talked to ashton and he said that you were in love with the movie when you were younger.And he mentioned that you used to act like her too."
"Yeah I did."
"Well go try it on."
I nodded and ran upstairs to my bathroom and put on the costume.The shirt only fit halfway,leaving my belly button piercing on full display.I pulled my hair into a high ponytail and put on the headdress.I had to say,this costume looked amazing on me.I walked downstairs to see Hannah talking to ashton.
"Hey kat-wow you look amazing."
I blushed at Ashton's comment.I made my way down my stairs.
"Thanks and nice dress.What are you supposed to be?"
"I'm an Egyptian god and this is called a Torah by the way."
"Yeah okay.Lets go!"
I laughed and pulled him by his wrist.We walked outside and piled into Ashton's car.Hannah sat in the back while I sat beside ashton in the front.Once we got there,It was already crowded.Ashton left my side as soon as we walked inside and Hannah went to go find Michael,which left me alone.I went to go get some punch.
I turned around to see Calum.
"Hey.What are you supposed to be?"
"I'm me duh."
"That's no fun."
"Whatever,I'll be right back."
I nodded and took another sip of my punch.I looked around to see Michael and Hannah laughing and seeming to have a good time.I saw Luke talking some black haired girl.I drew out a deep breathe.It seemed like everyone had someone but me.
"Nice to meet you Katie,you look nice tonight."
"You too,nice giraffe costume."
"Thanks,do you want to dance?"
I nodded and took his hand.He led me through the crowd of people and we started dancing.He ground his hips into me.We swayed along with the crowd.I found myself drinking one drink after the other.I knew that I was completely wasted alongside a really attractive giraffe.Soon Harry disappeared and was replaced with Calum.
"Your completely wasted."
I slapped his arm and started giggling uncontrollably.
"No I'm not.Do you know where the candy is?"
"Michael didn't buy any candy."
I pouted my lip and crossed my arms,which caused Calum to laugh.
"What type of of Halloween party doesn't have candy?"
"Do you want me to go get you some?"
"You'd do that?"
He laughed.He grabbed my hand and led me out to his car.I got in and started bouncing up and down in my seat.
"You are such a five year old when it comes to candy.Put your seat belt on."
"No I'm not now to the candy we go!"
"You're so wasted."
He laughed as he drove onto the road and to the closet convenient store.He got out and I started to unbuckle my seat but he stopped me.
"Whoa,I think you should stay in the car."
I stuck out my lip and folded my arms over my chest again.
"Because your completely drunk off your ass.I'll be right back."
"Bring back a lot of gummy worms,snickers,Reese's,and skittles!"
He smiled at me before heading inside the store.I played my hair,twisting it around my fingers and placing it under my nose like it was a mustache until Calum returned.He had about fifty million bags in his hands.
"I bought candy for the princess."
I clapped as he sat all ten bags full I every candy imaginable in my lap.I quickly started devouring the candy,starting with the cookies and cream Hershey bad.
"Wait,I was going to eat that-never mind."
I laughed as I started eating more and more of the candy.I knew that in the morning have would have a killer headache and a really upset stomach,but tonight I didn't care.Calum pulled out of the parking lot and onto the road again.
"Where to now,your majesty?"
"I don't know,anywhere except home."
He nodded and drove.I was scared of Calum but at this very moment,he seemed sweet and nice.I liked this Calum,the one that bought me candy and smiled.Usually I would want to get out of his car,but I wanted to stay in it,with him.
