"Wait,what do you mean Calum's gonna be here?"
"Yeah,Alexandria invited him."
I let out a long,deep breathe before looking back up at Bria.
"I can't do this.I don't want to be anywhere near that jerk"
"Oh stop worrying and let's have some fun."
I didn't say anything else.I followed Bria into Alexandria's house and walked through the huge crowd of people to find Alexandria.When we found her,she was talking to Ashton.
She squealed when she saw me.She ran over and gave me a hug.
"Thank you and I'm glad you're here.You remember Ashton,right?"
I looked beside her and met eyes with Ashton.He smiled at me,in which I returned.
"Yeah,how are you?"
"I'm great.You love beautiful tonight by the way."
I turned back to Alexandria who had the hugest smile on her face.
"Aw look at you guys flirting."
I blushed and looked down at my feet.This was kind of ironic because I'd always thought that Ashton was attractive and had a better attitude than Calum.Ashton leaned in and whispered something into her ear,which caused her to smile.
"Um we'll be right back,help yourself to some punch or cake or something."
I nodded before heading to a long table that held a wide variety of foods.I poured me some punch in a red cup.
I turned around to see the one person I didn't want to see,Calum.I let out a sigh before taking a sip of my drink.
"What do you want?"
"I just wanted to come say hi,and tell you that you look hot as hell tonight."
He grabbed my waist and leaned in close to my face.The smell of alcohol lingering on his breathe,he was obviously drunk.I pushed him off of me.
"Get away from me."
"Why are you being like this?"
"I'm not being like anything not get the hell away from me."
The smug look on his face turned into a frown.
"I'm trying to be fucking nice to you."
"Why? You obviously didn't want to be nice to me yesterday."
He stayed silent.
"You didn't want to be so nice to me when you were hanging around your friends,so why now?"
"You know what forget it.I can't believe I actually like you."
He walked away,which made me happy.I didn't have time for him and his two-faced ways.Alexandria and Ashton reappeared a few moments later,smiles plastered on their faces.
"So how'd it go with Calum?"
"You guys set that up?"
"Kinda but any who did he apologize? Are you guys good?"
"No and no."
Ashton looked pissed.
"Why didn't he apologize? He said he would.I'm gonna go get him."
"Ashton don't worry about it,its fine."
"No it's not-"
"Yeah it is.Listen,Alexandria,I'm gonna go ahead and head home.I'm not really in the partying type of mood."
"If this has to do with Calum,I'm sorry.But thanks for coming."
"No problem.You guys have a great night."
They both said in unison as turned around and started my search for Bria.When I found her,she was dancing with some tall,red head in a black SnapBack.I recognized the boy as Michael,the guy I met at lunch yesterday.
"Uh Leah right?"
"Hey,you wanna dance?"
"No I actually came for Bria."
Bria turned to look at me.
"I'm sorry,but can you take me home?"
"Yeah,but why? What's wrong?"
She knew exactly what was to come afterwards and I'm guessing so did Michael.
"What did he do now?"
"Nothing Michael,its nothing."
"I'm gonna go talk to him.You guys be safe."
We both nodded at him before easing out of the door into the cool night.Bria's car was parked a couple of houses down,which meant a pretty long walk.
I turned to see Calum running towards me.Bria and I started speed walking.
"Leave.me.alone.What part of that don't you understand?"
"Look I'm sorry I've been a jerk to you."
"Yeah right Calum.What's next? you to make it up to me by taking me out somewhere?"
"Fuck it.I'm trying to be nice to you and you're being a complete bitch."
"If I'm a bitch,what are you?"
"I'm that guy who's been a complete jerk to you and who's trying to apologize.But don't worry about it,I didn't really care to anyways."
Bria grabbed my arm and pulled me in the direction of her car.
"He's a jerk,but he's right.You are being just a tad bit unreasonable."
"What are you talking about?"
"He's trying to apologize to you.The least you could do is except it."
"No Bria,I won't and I'll tell you why.Ashton and Alexandria set the whole thing up,Ashton's making him apologize."
"So what your saying is that he really didn't mean what he said because from what I just saw,he seemed like he did."
"I don't know.I kind of still have feelings for him but then again he's shown his true colors and I don't want to be around that."
"I don't disagree with you there,but I still think you should give him the benefit of the doubt.Maybe he still has feelings for you too."
"I doubt it."
I walked up to the beach,where Calum was.I watched as he rode his board on the blue crystal waves,his chiseled abs glistening in the sun.I think he caught sight of me because he fell of of his board and into the water,which caused me to laugh.He rose from the water a few seconds later and smiled at me as he started making his way out of the water and over to me.
"Whoa,I didn't know you could surf."
He laughed as he set his board in the sand and sat down.I sat down right beside him.
"Yeah I've been surfing for a while now,a couple of years."
"Oh and you're good."
"You mean I was good until you walked up."
"What do I have to do with this?"
"Beautiful girls distract me and I loose focus easily,hence me seeing you causing me to fall of my board."
I blushed.He was seriously the sweetest guy on this planet.I nervously laughed.
"Do you surf?"
"No,I have no coordination whatsoever."
"Well let me teach you sometime."
"No way,you just want an excuse to see me in a bikini."
The familiar smirk returned to his face.
I laughed and hit his arm.
"You can't blame me but seriously let me teach you tomorrow.The waves are going to be perfect."
