16. 2nd Chance?
I woke up and Hayden was still sleeping so i slipped out without her waking up. I ran downstairs, grabbed two Motrin and a glass of water and ran back upstairs. I then ran out again and put my Vans on and got into my car. I drove to Rue 21 and bought a few beanies for Hayden along with some bandanas. Then I picked up a gift bag and some tissue paper. I wrapped it all up and wrote a note.
I hope you feel at least a little better than yesterday. I got you some Motrin and some water in case you have a headache. Enjoy your surprise!
I snuck back in and she was still asleep. I put the bag on the ground and the note next to the water. I then gently kissed her forehead and walked out to my room.
I woke up with a massive headache. I started to get up when i realized a note next to my bed. I read it and smiled. I took the Motrin and opened the gift. I got 2 beanies and 2 bandanas that would work perfectly. My door then opened and Calum saw me wide awake. "Hey your awake!" "Yes i am and I apparently got some new beanies. Thank you!" I said trying to get up. I was a little more stable than yesterday, but still wobbly. So he walked over to me instead and gave me a piggy back ride and i kissed him on the cheek. His smile grew wider than ever before. "So is it possible for me to take you out on another date?" He asked "It would be my honor. Where shall we go?" I asked. "How about Prom at our very own high school?" "That sounds great" i said. "So how about you get ready and we will go shopping for a dress for your prom" "But I don't have any money" "Don't worry, i got it covered. I have known about this for a while so i have been saving up" "I don't know that seems like a lot!" "Not for someone I love" "I love you too" i said hugging him tighter.
Once i got ready Calum took me to a few dress shops. There were people everywhere staring at me "Just ignore them" Calum said realizing that I was upset. We were looking around and one dress stood out the most. It was a short turquoise dress with rhinestones on the top. I tried it on and it fit perfectly. We bought it and bought some white heels and i already had a white beanie to wear.
One week later
It was the day of prom, where everyone would see that i no longer had hair. I slipped on my dress and my beanie. I was much more stable now than i was before and i could walk in heels. I walked downstairs where Calum was standing in awe. "How do I look?" I said spinning around. "Amazing as always" Calum said. "Why thank you" i said kissing his cheek. Then Luke walked in with Mirna, Mikey walked in with Alexis, and Ashton walked in with Jamie. We all walked out and got our pictures then went to the school in our limo. Calum noticed that I was nervous as we walked in so he said "Don't worry I will be with you the whole time. As we walked in, i realized that it wasn't just one school, but my old school and new school in one prom, and the one person i didn't want to see had to be there, Amber. "Hey look it's Hayden, the ugly! What happened to your hair? Did you die it too many times bitch" i was about to say something until Calum walked up and supported me. "Hey you don't know her and she is the most beautiful girl in the world. So back off" She gained a frown and stomped off. "I love you too much to let you get bullied.
