Calum at the age of 12. P.O.V
Jayne and I have been really, really close for the 4 years we have known each other. Last year someone asked her out, and it wasn't me.. I was guttered because I didn't ask her sooner.. I remember 2 years ago when we snuggled together and I kissed her and everything was perfect.
I saw something the other day that will break Jayne and I don't want to hurt her, but she needs to know. Her boyfriend, Tom, has been two timing her with this girl Rani.
The school bell rang and I saw her and Tom walking to our next class as I walk out of my little group and head towards them.
'Hey Jayne!' I say running up and jumping on her and Tom.
'Hey Calum!' She says laughing.
'Hey man, what's up?' Tom says.
I glared at him 'nothing much man what have you been up to? I know you haven't been with Jayne because I have been..' I say.
'Calum! Cool down! His dad's sick, his looking after his dad. I have told you this!' She says
'Jayne I need to talk to you... Alone..' I say breaking them up. I pull her arm and take her to an empty space. Without Tom.
'Jayne, I need to tell you something about Tom..' I say rubbing the back of my neck.
'What is it Calum?' She asks concerned.
'I-I uhh saw something and uh I think you should know..' I stutter.
'Calum, you're starting to freak me out. Tell me what's going on.' She says.
I take a deep breath. Well here it goes. 'Tomhasbeentwotimingyou.' It came out so fast I am surprised she understood.
'With who? How long? How do you know? Are you telling the truth?' She asks all in one.
I give her an uneasy look. She let out a deep breath and looked to the ground and started to cry.
'Hey, hey. Jayne don't cry! Come here!' I say with my arms open and it was like she fell into my arms and she was there for a while.
'Wanna go to the sickroom? You can say you don't feel well and I will fall over and graze my knee?' I ask
She laughs 'You would graze your knee to be with me?' She asks smiling.
'I would do anything to be with you.' I say rubbing my arm. I looked up to her, she was blushing.
'Well come on then fall over. I feel sick.' She winked
I laughed and 'accidentally' fell down the stairs and grazed my knee.
She helps me into the sickroom and she lays down in the bed beside me. We were talking and laughing. I was trying to make her feel happy but I could still see sadness behind her eyes.
'Hey, you wanna sleep at mine?' I ask her.
She looks to me and nods, 'yeah, that would be nice.' She says smiling.
Jayne was at mine and her mum bought her stuff over.
'Hows the guitar going?' She asks me.
'Really good. I am learning all these different songs and Mali is teaching me and I absolutely love it. But I am in love with soccer. Speaking of soccer, you wanna go kick the ball around?' I ask
She was sitting in my bed as I was standing up. She smiles and nods. I reach out my hand and help her up.
After a few minutes of kicking the soccer ball.
'Hey Jayne.' I ask
'Yeah?' She asks kicking the ball to me.
'Are you ok, like with the whole Tom thing?' I ask
'I am fine now that I got you.' She says smiling at me.
'And I am not going anywhere so you're stuck with me.' I say
'Good.' She says smiling once again.
