I walk downstairs with Julie awkwardly. "Hey Cal." I smile at Bruce but he doesn't return the smile. I try to brush it off. "Boys can you put the bags in the car I want to make sure Annabelle gets this note and she'll be out to tell you bye Bruce." We nod. When we walk outside we put the first two bags in but Bruce stops me. "Listen Cal. I like you. You're a nice boy. But if you get Annabelle pregnant." My eyes widen. "Wooooaaah. No. We haven't even done that let alone has she probably thought about that." He rolls his eyes. "Like you don't think about that." I take a step back. "I wouldn't rush her into anything. If she's not ready I can wait. I'm not like that sir." He glares at me. "Well if you hurt-" He gets cut off by Annabelle jumping up in his arms. "BYE BRUCE!" I guess they had been bonding. He smiles patting her back. "Bye Annie." She gives him a weird look. "Annie?" He smiles. "Yeah Annie." He turns back to me. "Take care of her." I nod smiling. She comes up to me wrapping her arms around me. "He will." Bruce rolls his eyes. "No staying the night. No being over after 8. No being alone. Luke or Michael over here at all times." She rolls her eyes this time. "Three boys instead of one?" Bruce glares. "Two of them aren't dating my daugh- I mean aren't dating you. I trust Luke he's a nice boy." She smiles at him. "You can call me daughter Bruce." His chees heat. "CALL LUKE!" We watch as they drive off. When they get far enough away I turn to her. She puts her head in my chest. "Babe?" She sighs. "Hmmmm?" I kiss the top of her head. "What do you want to do today?" She looks up with me and pouts. "Sleep." I smile picking her up. "Then we'll sleep." She giggles. "I have to go shop and I'm sure your mom wants you to atleast come home." I turn. "Then we'll go home. Then shop. Then eat. Then sleep. Okay?" She sighs. "You need to go home. I need to shop. You need to eat with your mom." I groan. "But we're already so close to the door." I start to walk up the porch. "Calummm put me downnn." I sigh. "Fine." I act like I'm going to drop her but catch her before she hits the ground. I wince at the pain of my shoulder but brush it off. She squeals. "CALUM!" My mum walks out clearing her throat. Annabelle quickly pushes away from me. "Sorry. Uh. Oh. Um Hi." Her face turns red. "Mum."
I stand awkwardly as Calum and his mom fight. I turn and start to walk away but Calum grabs me. "You're not leaving." I sigh. "Calum. I don't need to be in on this. Let me go. Have some time with your mom jeez." He rolls his eyes. "Whatever just go and call Luke Bruce sure likes him. Maybe he'll be the one to get you pregnant." I glare at him. "Thanks for the idea Calum I will." I take my phone out. "Hey. Come get me. I'll be walking down the road." I don't stop as I hear Calum calling my name. "Hey!" I turn to see a boy coming towards me. I don't stop. "Hey stop!" I just ignore him walking a little faster trying not to make it noticeable. "Hey, seriously. Stop!" Where the fuck are you Lucas?! I hear a car horn and take off running towards it leaving the boy watch me ride away in the car. I sigh. "Who was that?" I shrug. "I don't know.." I look out the window. "Fuck I need to call Bruce to tell him I'm with you." I start to search for my phone. "Fuck! I must've left it at Calums. I don't remeber sitting it down after I called you though." He sighs. "Whats going on now?" I close my eyes and explain. "Its not that bad." I open my eyes and stare at him. "He gets mad at me for no reason." He pulls up into his driveway. "Lets just not talk about Calum." I nod. "Why can't you guys be friends? What did he do to you?" Luke looks shocked by the question. "Honestly. He took my girlfriend away. He's a player Annabelle. You deserve better and thats why it made me so mad when you guys started dating. He hooks up with everything he sees.. I just don't want you to get hurt. Did you hear something about a fuckboy when you first moved here?" I nod. "Well. Thats Calum." I sigh. "What about Michael?" Luke facepalms. "Actually a girl too.." I giggle. "Get over yourself Lucas. What happened?" He looks out thw window I can tell this one actually means more to him. "Its okay Luke. You don't have to tell me."
*Later on that night.*
"Thanks Luke." I wave as I walk up to the door. I unlock it walking in. "Shit.. I have to go to the store." I see the list on the counter. I sigh walking over to it picking it up. I turn to the door but see Calum walking up through the window. I groan. "really?!?!" I lock the door quickly walking to the garage. I don't have my liscense great. I get into the car anyways. I don't even want to look at him after what Luke said about all the girls. I start to car up opening the garage door. I slowly pull out making sure all the doors are locked. "Annabelle wait." Calum catches me at the end of the driveway stepping in front of the car. "Get out of my fucking way." He doesn't move. "Calum I don't have a liscense so unless you want to get ran over move out of the fucking way!" I rev the engine making him jump back. When hes clearly out of the way I speed off. I sigh pulling into the store parking lot. After I'm finally done I stop to get some coffee and food. It took me two hours. I get into the car making sure the doors were locked again. You can say I'm kinda paranoid. I put he car in reverse backing out of my parking spot I don't even get halfway out and I hit a car. "GREAT!" I get out going to the back to see if it causes any damage. "I'm so so so so sorry sir." Then I realize who it is. "Oh its you." He smiles. "Yeah its me and don't worry about it. By the way heres your phone you dropped it by my house. My little brother Harry tried to yell at you but you walked away from him." I nod grabbing my phone. "Uh thanks." He smiles again. "Anytime. I would have brought it to you earlier but I don't exactly know where you live. I'm Ashton by the way. You're Annabelle right?" I nod. "Uh yeah.. How do you know my name?" He rolls his eyes. "I don't stalk you american. I go to school with you. Of course you wouldn't notice though. Typical." I raise my eyebrow. "Typical?" He shrugs. "Yeah. Typical from a pretty american snob." I sigh. "Listen. I'm just not in a good mood. Thanks for the phone bye the way sorry about you car. Hopefully nothings wrong with it." I get in the car. "COULD YOU MOVE?!?" He shakes his head smiling. When he finally moves I get home. When I pull up I notice Calum is sitting on the front doorstep. I roll my eyes clicking the garage door open. He gets up quickly coming towards the garage. I roll my eyes clicking the door closed. I put the car in reverse. "Annabelle stop! I've been waiting this whole time!" He screams. I ignore him backing out of the driveway. I get atleast four houses down when I look over seeing the boy. Ashton I think with a little boy. I'm guessing his brother. I pull over. "Ashton!" He turns around. I get out of the car running over. "I'm uh. Sorry about earlier." He smiles. "Its okay love." I smile. "Uh. Can I come in?" He looks at me weirdly. I can hear Calum calling my name. "please..." He nods
