On the way to the kitchen, where all the drinks were kept, I bumped into Calum.
"Calum! Great, I was just looking for you!" I then pulled him in for a hug, which he looked slightly shocked at. I didn't offer hugs very often.
"Were you?" He asked and I nodded in response. "Um, well, do you know where Michael is?"
"Oh, um, I just saw him." I turned around and walked back into the lounge. "There he is, he's with Ashton."
"Who?" Calum's eyebrows furrowed in confusion.
"Ashton. I don't know his last name. He's eighteen, nearly finished school. He likes Slipknot and he said something about drums. At least I think it was drums."
Calum nodded. "Oh, cool. I just didn't want to lose him, ya know?"
"Oh my god, I ship Malum so much!" I squealed.
Calum furrowed his eyebrows again, saying, "Malum?"
"Calum and Michael, you idiot. Now, come on, I want to grab a drink and then talk to you!" I grabbed Calum's hand and pulled him back into the kitchen. I picked up two bottles of beer with my free hand and then continued to drag Calum outside. The back yard was quiet and peaceful. There was one couple making out against the wall, but everyone else was inside. There was an empty pool to the right and a large hill to the left. I sat down at the top of the hill, pulled Calum down to join me, then handed him a beer.
"How much have you had to drink, Sam?"
"A little, teensie, tiny bit. I'm not entirely sure. But I need this drink right now because I have to tell you something." I cracked off the lid and took a swig.
"Well, go on, tell me." He urged.
"Right, well." I took another sip. "I was talking to Ashton, they guy who's with Michael, earlier and I came to the realisation that aesthetically pleasing guys can be categorised into four different categories." I looked at Calum and saw him nodding, if slightly confused. "Right, so, these four categories are," I said as I ticked them off my fingers. "Hot, cute, attractive, or sexy. Ashton, for example, is attractive. Zac Efron would be sexy. Your friend Alex would be hot, and you, Calum, would be cute. Because you are as cute as a button and you're so sweet and you're basically a massive cutie. And then I came to another realisation. Whilst you are a cutie and I want to cuddle you like a teddy bear, I genuinely like you. I mean, yeah, we're friends, but I think I like like you. You get me?"
I turned to face Calum to see him just staring at me with a blank face. So I continued. "When we were hanging out at Michael's ages ago and I went to get food, when I came back I heard you asking Michael if he liked me. As in, like like. Michael said no and then you were like 'really?' and then Michael was like 'how many time do I have to tell you?' and then I came in and was like 'once more' and then I kinda realised that I kinda liked you."
I took a deep breath in, slightly out of breath from my spiel. "And then we've been hanging out a lot, with Michael, and as much as I love Michael, I wanted him gone so that I could spend some time with just you. But that never happened and then when I was talking to Alex, he was like 'you should tell him' and I was like 'yeah, I should'. So here I am. Telling you that I like you more than a friend, Calum Hood. And I hope you like me back."
I looked at Calum. He had a massive grin on his face and I couldn't help but smile back. A small laugh escaped my lips when Calum opened his mouth to talk but no words came out. He hurriedly took a large sip from his beer, followed by two more.
"Um, wow, I've never had a girl say that to me before." He gulped. "I just want to ask one thing. Would it be alright if, um, well..." He gulped again. "Would it be alright if I kissed you?"
I stared at Calum for a bit, not really believing that I had heard him right. Calum Hood, the boy with too many soccer trophies, wanted to kiss me, Sam Jackson, the girl with too many band tees. It was unbelievable.
"Well, I can't wait any longer for an answer," Calum sighed. "I'm just going to kiss you." And he did. However, as Calum leant in and was nearing my face, the hand I was resting on slipped on the slightly damp grass, and instead of our lips meeting, it was his lips and the side of my face. But Calum took it in his stride, didn't deter from his mission, and his lips attached to my neck. He began sucking on it and I soon began to feel blood rising to the top. It wasn't exactly the romantic first kiss scene I had imagined but it would have to do.
Calum pulled away from my neck and his breath fanned lightly against my skin, slightly tickling it. His hands rested on my waist and I moved mine to around his neck. We looked each other in the eye and then I was leaning forward, he was leaning forward, and we kissed. Properly this time, though. And it was bliss. It wasn't my first kiss, but it was for Calum, and he was pretty good.
I had read lots of stories where when the girls kisses her crush for the first time and the author describes how the girls knees weakened and she struggled to stand up. I never really believed; I'd kissed loads of guys and that had never happened. However, with Calum, my knees actually did feel weak. I was glad I was sitting down.
We continued kissing for a while and I enjoyed every minute of it. I could only hope Calum was too. As I leaned forward to deepen the kiss, Calum lowered his hands to just below my hips and I grasped his hair softly. It felt soft and thick under my fingers and I couldn't help but play with it. But apparently I was leaning too far forward and, since I was basically on Calum's lap, lost balance and fell on top of Calum. He was so shocked that he fell back against the grass and we tumbled down the hill. It was ungraceful as possible and I couldn't see anything. All that passed my vision was a blur.
Once we had stopped moving and we were at the bottom of the hill, Calum burst out laughing. Despite feeling nauseous, I began laughing as well. It was funny; it was our first kiss. I was drunk, Calum slightly, and we fell down a hill. I tried to stop laughing but I honestly couldn't and soon tears were streaming down my face.
"I'm so sorry, Calum." I said.
"Nah, it's all right. I like your laugh." His smile was wide and I could see his faint dimples.
I smiled in return and then began to laugh even more. My theory was true, Calum was a major cutie.
Yay, another chapter done. Hope you enjoyed it because Calum and Sam admitted their feelings for each other and now everything is happy! Yay!
Alright, that's all, love ya, bye!
