Chapter 7: Anniversary
I had now known the boys for a month which was one of the best months in my life. We had done all kinds of things together, I barely slept at Annandale, and when I did, the boys where there too.
"Gemma? Can we go shopping today? I kind of need some more underwear and socks" Calum said "Alright, but don't you have enough underwear Cal?" I said smiling, I knew he had so much underwear but on the other hand new underwear was always nice, maybe he's just a bit of a hoarder.. No wait, that had to be Luke, always stealing underwear.
Today was precisely the day we met a month ago. I had already bought the boys one month anniversary presents. None of them had mentioned this anniversary, I was thinking about mentioning it, but I wanted to wait a little longer.
"Is it only Calum and I going shopping?" I asked; I noticed them becoming slightly nervous, looking away. "Yeah kind of wanna write on some new songs" Ashton said cocking his head to one side. "Yeah I have some stuff to do with my mom" Luke said
"I just want to play fifa" Michael lazily threw himself at the sofa and turned on the tv. "Okay, see you guys later then" I waved as Calum and I took off. "Today it's just you and me Cal Pal!" I shrieked, Calum looked at me giving me his famous smile.
Gemma and Calum had gone shopping, it was part of our plan. We wanted to get Gemma out of the house so we could prepare our special anniversary dinner and movie.
We wanted to surprise her, I just hope she hadn't forgotten the annivesary. We got her present a few days ago. We had decided to give her a necklace from all of us, with a real silver plate where all of our names where engraved in a heart.
At the right corner of the silver plate a little diamond was put, and the reason it was from all of us, was also because it was too expensive for only one to buy. Mostly it was because our names were engraved on it and we wanted her to have something special from us. Michael, Luke and I decorated our place, to make it look like a cinema.
So this was how we wanted it to go. When Gemma and Calum comes home, we will take Gemma to her favorite restaurant, afterwards we'll take her outside in the backyard where we set up lights so it would look like a sky full of stars, then we would go for ice cream at our favorite place, Gemma has also grown very fond of the ice cream place.
And lastly we will go to the living room which looks like a cinema and watch a movie. I had rented a movie called A Million Ways To Die In The West, Gemma hadn't stopped talking about it so I thought it would be nice to watch it.
My (Gemma) POV:
"So how do you like Australia? You've been here a month" Calum said taking my arm as we walked inside the mall. "I love it Cal, and the fact that you guys are here, to show me all the good things makes it even better! Anywhere with you guys would be perfect!" I said and side hugged Calum.
"Aw Gemma you're too nice! Any other person would have been annoyed and walked away by now" Calum chuckled "Well I love you guys and I'm not going anywhere.. well except for when I'm going home in 3 months, but until then, you can't avoid me!" I said happily "Well we don't mind looking at you everyday, we just love you. I do think that Ash is having a major crush on" Calum smiled
"You're the best Cal! I don't think Ash has a crush on me" I said "I think he really likes you Gemma." Calum glanced at me "No, he doesn't, he likes me as much as the rest of you, you're my best friends!" I said, with a hint of doubt.
Did Ashton like me? No, he couldn't I wasn't good enough for him... Besides he hadn't said anything, and he didn't flirt with me, at least not as far as I knew. I couldn't tell if I had feelings for him, or if what I felt for him was the same as for the other guys.
"Okay, let's talk about something else then" Calum said and went into footlocker. "Cal, this isn't really what I imagined when you said, you needed underwear. But okay" I smirked
"Haha Gem, you're definitely THE captain obvious!" Calum laughed and stuck out his tongue. "Hey!" I said and chased him around the shop, between shelves of shoes.
"You remind me too much of a guy sometimes love" Calum grinned while running. "Oh really.. well darling, sometimes you remind me of a girl, that's just who you are haha" I was almost out of breath.
"Let's make a video for Instagram and keek!" Calum suggested "Okay, sure pal" I smiled "Okay, I will film while chasing you, okay?" Calum took out his phone; I simply nodded. I started running laughing at the same time, while Calum was running behind me, I looked back at him and smiled. As I looked at Calum he ran towards a shoe shelf knocking it over.
I was laughing so hard, I could barely breath. I ran to him, to make sure he was alright. "I'm sorry Calum, it looked so hilarious. But are you okay?" I smirked "I'm fine, but man it hurts running into a shelf with shoes" he groaned as I helped him back on his feet again.
"We need to see the video!" I laughed. Calum nodded and pressed play on his phone. Calum admitted it was pretty funny when watching the video. We were both out of breath. "Okay let's post it" Calum said still laughing.
When he had posted the video he looked at me with a mischievous grin "Selfie time!!" he shrieked and we both posed for a selfie. "That is so adorable!" I said "Send it to me".
I saved the picture and put it as my home background on my phone. On the lock screen I had a picture of me and the four boys, it was my favorite picture.
I then received a snapchat from Ash, giving me a big smiley face. I loved his snaps, they were always so happy. I replied back saying he was the best. Was that a sign, of him liking me?
"What do you think of these shoes?" Calum held up a cute pair of black pumps, making me snap back to reality, "For you, I'm not really sure if it's your style" I said mischievously, "No silly, for you of course" Calum face palmed himself and laughed.
"Well in that case I love them!!" I said grabbing them out of his hand. I tried on the shoes; they looked really cool on me. "You look amazeballs in them!" Calum said "I know right?" I looked at them.
"I want to give them to you, because I want to" Calum pulled out his wallet, "No Calum it's too much" I protested but Calum had already snatched the shoes from my feet. I got back on my feet after putting my shoes on.
Calum was standing by the shop entrance, he had already paid for the shoes, and he was holding out the bag "To my favorite girl!". I took hold of the bag "Thanks Cal, you're the best!" I hugged him tightly and quickly pecked his cheek.
"You weren't really needing any underwear were you?" I asked after we exited the shop. He shook his head taking my arm.
We made our way back to the car and drove home.
