I decided to go to school the next day.I have to be honest.When Calum basically revealed that he still had feelings for me,the weird feeling that I had in my stomach came back.I still had feelings for him,but I can't just get over the way he's treated me since.It would take some time.
I met up with Bria when I got in the parking lot of the school.She had a huge smile on her face.
"Hey Leah!" She basically screamed in my ear.
"Hey.Why are you yelling?" I asked as I laughed.
"Because I'm really happy right now.Guess why?" She teases.
"Why?" I asked curiously.I noticed she was hiding something behind her back,which made me even more anxious to find out what she was hiding from me.
"Calum wanted me to give you these." she said.She pulled out a small bouquet of white roses from behind her back.
"Oh my gosh,these are gorgeous.He gave you these for me?" I asked as I smelled them.
"Yeah.I think he really is sorry,Don't you think?" She asked.
"Yeah.Wait,I think I see a card." I said.I pulled off a white card that was attached to the string wrapped around the stems of the flowers.It read:
I'm really sorry about the way I treated you.I was being a douche.I was so worried about my reputation that I hurt you.I really want to make it up to you,but only if you'd let me.I told you I loved you over the summer,which I wasn't sure about then but now I know I'm sure.I love you. -Calum xx
I couldn't help but smile at the letter.I got hung up on the I love you part.Did he really? I mean I only knew him for three months before now.I needed to talk to him.
"What does it say?" Bria asked impatiently.I handed her the card and watched as she read it,a smile playing at the corner of her lips.
"Awww that's so cute! Leah you need to talk to him right now!" She squealed.
"I know,I know.But what if he does the same thing to me again? What if he treats me differently around his friends?" I asked.I did have my doubts still.
"I doubt it.Calum seems extremely sincere.You were crazy about him over the summer and he seems hella crazy about you now.You better talk to him." she said.I nodded.
"Yeah,you're right.I will." I said.
"Great,now let's get to class.If I get a tardy,my mom will kill me." she said jokingly as she dragged me by my sleeve into school.
Calum wasn't in any of the regular classes we shared,which led me to believe that he skipped school.I really need to see him,so hopefully he was at lunch.I met Bria in the lunch line and we grabbed our lunch,todays special was a cheeseburger with fries.
"So what happened with Calum?" She nudged my arm.
"He wasn't in any of the classes we shared." I said almost in disappointment.
"Really,I thought maybe he had just ran late or something." she said shocked,which I don't see how.He was the best student after all.
"Nope,I think he skipped."
"Well maybe he's sitting outside like he usually is." she said with a smile.
When we got outside,we walked to Calum's usual table.The only people there were Michael,Ashton,Luke,and the usual girls.
"Hey Leah.Hey Bria." the boys said,although at different times.
"Hey." Bria and I said in unison.
"You better stay away from my Calum,slut." Candice shouted at me.
"Your Calum?" I said.Who was this girl to claim someone?
"You heard me.He was mine first,so back off." she said.
"Candice shut up.Calum dumped you two years ago.He obviously doesn't like you anymore if he's moved on to Leah." Luke said,which made me laugh.
"Yeah,whatever.He'll end up crawling back to me soon enough." she said with a evil smile directed at me.
"Come on girls,I don't have time for this ugly girl." she scoffed.Candice and her posse got up from the table and walked inside.Bria and I took their seats and sat with the boys.
"We're really sorry about her.She's just pissed because Calum got tired of her annoying and cheating ways.She's kind of a slut,just saying." Michael informed us.
"Did you guys see what Calum bought for Leah today.It's so cute." Bria squealed.
"What did he buy you?" Ashton asked.
"This." I pulled the bouquet of roses out of my bag and set them on the table,the card in plain view.The boys picked up the card and read it together.
"That's nice." Michael said.
"You know Calum was planning on buying you a big Teddy bear." Luke said.
"And why didn't he?"
"I told him not to." He said shoving some fries in his mouth.
"Why? I like teddy bears!"
"Well I thought flowers were a lot more romantic." he said defensively.I rolled my eyes at him and began eating my lunch.
Bria went home early for a dentist appointment leaving me alone.I walked out to the parking lot and started to walk home when I caught sight of him.When his eyes met mine,his face lit up.I walked over to his car,bouquet in hand.
"I see you got my flowers." he said,a smile on his face.
"Yeah,thanks they're gorgeous." I said,looking at the flowers. "I can't believe you actually remembered that these were my favorite."
"Well when you like someone,you remember those types of things." He said.The words I love you from the note still stuck in my mind.I wanted to ask him about that,but decided it was too soon.
"Thanks for the apology." I said,looking down at the ground.I don't know why I couldn't look him in the eyes when I said this,but I just couldn't.
"I want you to know that I meant every bit of the things I said in the card.I am really sorry about hurting you.I feel even worse about it now that I know that you were in a worse state before you moved here and met me." he said.
I stayed silent as the words I love you stuck with me.The one question dwelled in my mind,Did he really love me?
"Let me take you out for coffee right now." he said.
"Right now?" I asked taken by surprise.
"Yeah,right now." he said with a smile.
"Yeah,I'd like to." I said.
"Thank god.I was scared you would say no.Come on." he walked over to the passenger side of the his car and held the door open.I walked over and got into his car.He closed the door and ran over to his side and got in.
"Okay,Coffee and donuts here we come." he said cheerfully.He started his car and drove out of the schools' parking lot.I let out a small laugh.I had a good feeling about this.
