After the battle of the bands I quickly went home. "To the happy couple?!" I yelled as I pushed all the books off my book shelf. "Not to the happy couple! Ugghh!!!"
"Luke!" my mum rushed into my room. I glanced at her, then turned my face. I was so mad at April! How could she go out with a guy that was bullying me for a year and a half?!
"She was suppose to be my best friend mum," I cried into my mum's chest.
"I know sweetie, but you gotta respect her choices. I heard about what happened at the battle of the bands," she stroked my hair. "If she wants to be with him, all you can do is be there and be cheerful when she talks about him, even if it eats you inside. Just be happy for her son; that's all you can do."
" Mum, I know Calum, what if he treats her the same way he treated me? I don't want her to get hurt. She doesn't deserve it," I pulled away and looked at her.
"Lukey, listen to me, if this is what she wants, then let her learn from her own mistakes. You aren't responsible for her. Just know that son." She kissed my forehead then walked out of my room.
I had some time to think. If she wants this, then I guess I will respect her choice. But the moment Calum starts to disrespect her and mistreating her, then that's where I'm gonna step in. She's to delicate to be mistreated. All of a sudden the doorbell rang.
" Luke! It's April!" I don't know what tone my mum's voice was in. I slowly made my way down stairs. I signaled my mum to give us some privacy.
"Yes?" Eyes were glued to the floor.
"I came to talk to you about Calum and I. I just wan-"
"Don't worry, I'm not mad or anything. I will respect your choices. We are best friends Apes," I said as I hugged her.
Luke's warm hugged made the moment special. He is one of those best friends who accepts who you go out with even though he's mad. A best friend that will tell you how it is when you are to stupid to see. But most of all, a best friend who loves you.
"Aww Lucas you're gonna make me cry," I sarcastically said as I hugged him back.
"Don't push it little one," he laughed as he playfully punched my arm.
We got interrupted by my phone ringing. It was Calum?...
A: Hey Cal what's up?
(Cal? what was I thinking?)
C: You aren't at Luke's house right?
He sounded worried.
A: Yes I am at Luke's house why?
C: Uh... oh no...
He was making me nervous by this point.
A: Calum can you please just tell me what's wrong?!
Luke looked at me with a conclusion already planted on his face.
C: Uh... I know it's only been an hour but... I think we need to break up... I'm really sorry. I really wish that I can explain this clear enough so you wo-
I hung up on his sorry ass. I looked over to Luke; his face preparing for the worst thing possible. My bottom lip started quivering.
"Apes, don't cry love. He's not even worth your tears. He's dumb enough to walk away, so be smart and let him go," he held my shoulders like a father encouraging his daughter to do something right for once in her god damn life. My head hung down. I didn't even want to look at the world above it. How could Calum do this?
"He led me on! and just ugh!" My head was still low.
"Everything is gonna be alright Apes. Look at me," he said. "Pick your head up princess, your tiara is falling." with his words he planted a sweet kiss on my nose.
I'm done with you Calum Thomas Hood....
