19. Pay back
"No. Stop being such a fucking bitch." I push past Calums mom pulling Annabelle behind me. I walk quick. She has to at least see him she needs this. "Luke please.." I pull Annabelle harder. "No you're going to see him you need this." We turn another corner and I see another desk. "Hello." I smile. "Where is Calum Hood?" I ask the nurse thats behind the desk. "Hold on let me check" As the nurse types things into the computer I feel someone touch my shoulder. "We're going to see him stop." I turn and see its a man. "Sir I have orders that you two cannot see a Mr hood." I look the security guard right in the eye. "Please.." The guard shakes his head. "Either you leave on your own I can make you." I sigh and grab Annabelles hand. I act like I'm wakking away then I run. I go as fast as I can dragging Annabelle along with me. "COME ON!" I yell and turn a corner I can hear the guard behind us. I turn around another corner and see him. This is great this is what I want he just has to see her. "CALUM!!" I yell as loud as I can. Then I'm on the ground.
"CALUM!!!" I turn over and look but no ones there. I sigh. "Yeah right.. Like Luke would be here. He doesn't even like me and he sure wouldn't bring.... her here." I can't even say her name. I turn back around. "I thought she would come.." I shake my head. "No! I can't think about this. She doesn't care I don't care. She has someone else." I hear footsteps and I close my eyes. I don't want to talk to anyone. "Calum?" Its my mom. "Calum sweetie?" I ignore her keep my eyes closed breathing slowly. I hear her sigh. Then footsteps again. "Hello. I'm the nurse on shift. My names Ashton. I just started so I'm trying to get the hang of it. This is uh room 302 so Cal-..." The male voice stops. "Calum hood yes." My mom finishes. "Uh yes. I was just checking to see if he was asleep and he seems to be the doctor is supposed to speak to you shortly. He may be getting released soon."
"Fuck fuck fuck. Everywhere I go!" I punch the bathroom stall door. "I can't escape her! I knew she said something about him being in the hospital but this one? The one I'm interning in? Of fucking course her amazing boyfriend would be here." I walk out of the bathroom my hand bleeding. "Oh Ashton are you okay?" I shake my head. "I fell.." The nurse takes my hand. "Ah.. Let me bandage it.. Are you hurting?" I nod even though its a lie. It hurts but not that bad. "Maybe you should go home? Take a break come back later if you feel better hun." I nod. "Thank you.." She nods back at me. "Feel better." I leave as quickly as possible and speed by Annabelles house she doesn't need to know I'm home. I pull into the driveway quickly and get into the garage. I sigh and put my head on the steering wheel. I need to take a nap.. I get out and go inside. "Hey Ashy!!!!" My little brother runs up to me. "Hey buddy. House it going?" He smiles. "GOOOOOOD YOU HAVE A VISITORRR!" My smile fades. "Who?" He shrugs. "I don't knoww he has awesome hair and he plays pokemon!" I know who it is now.. I look up and see him. "Michael."
"He'll never know.." I say to the camera. "Guys I hate crying infront of you but I want to be completely honest... I hurt so so much.. I went to the hospital and they threw us out.. I just wanted to show him i cared even to come.." I feel the tears rush but I shake my head.. "Song time.. This is for Calum if he ever watches this." I sigh. "Merily we fall out of line out of line I'd fall anywhere you I'm by your side swinging in the rain humming meoldies we're not going anywhere until we freeze.." I sing finish singing I wouldn't mind and put my guitar down. "I'm sorry Calum." I lay down and eventually drift to sleep. I wake up in a cold sweat. "Help help help!" I can't feel my legs. "PLEASE!" Bruce and Julie run in. "Hey its okay its okay sweetie whats wrong." I jerk around as I start to get the feeling back. "Annie its okay come on." I sob into his chest as Julie rubs my back. "Whats wrong?" Julie asks me I shake my head. "Everything.."
*Two days later Calums POV*
"Thanks guys." I wave to the nurses as I walk outside. "Glad you're feeling better Calum!" One of the nurses yells and I smile. I'm so not ready to go home but who cares. I have her blocked from youtube and facebook and any social site she is on. I look down. "Calum are you going to get in?" My mom asks I sigh and get in. "Yeah yeah." When we get home I don't even look towards the house I just walk straight in. I know if I look I won't be able to stop. As soon as I get inside I run upstairs. Its 6 pm and I know that I'm going to school tomorrow already. My mom says no but I'm going anyways. I sigh laying down and listening to music. I guess eventually i fell asleep becauae the next thing I know I'm waking up to being shaken. "CALUM GET UP YOU'RE GOING TO BE LATE!" I jump up quickly too quickly my head swims. "What time is it?" I stand up running to get my clothes. "Its 6:50." I run to the bathroom grabbing some deodorant and tooth brush. "Shit shit shit." I quickly put my pants on then put my tooth brush in my mouth. "NO TIME FOR BREAKFAST SORRY LOVE YOU!" I run outside ripping my shirt off. When I get to my car I quickly finish brushing my teeth and throw it on the ground with my shirt. I get my other shirt on and I'm off. I don't even look at Annabelles house. When I get to school I don't even stop to get anything I get into my class and sit after the bell has rang. "Ah nice to have you here Calum. I know you've been gone however you should not be coming in late." I nod. "Sorry Mr. P." he nods.
*4th block Calums POV still*
I dread walking into my last class because I know shes in here. Yes shes in other classes but this one she sits too close. She looks perfectly fine and that just pisses me off. She wouldn't even come see me. "Stop!" I mumble. You can't think about her. I go to the back and sit down as the bell rings. Shes not here though. I look around the room to make sure I don't see her. I sigh. I don't want to see her but I do.. Its just hard.
I walk out of my classroom and go down the hall. "Annabelle?" I call but I don't see her. I keep walking and look around. She texted me saying she needed to meet me here. "You're pathetic." My head whips around and I see her. Jasons standing over her. He laughs as tears start to well in her eyes. "Why would you have put a video of that? You sure like him don't you? You're a fucking loser! 'This is for Calum.' Thats embarrassing you slut. Don't you have another boy who is it um" He snaps his fingers. "Ashton. Yeah Ashton. If you jump from guy to guy why can't we have a little fun?" He slams his face into hers and starts to lift up her shirt. "GET OFF OF HER" I take off running at him. He turns and I get a punch at him. "don't EVER touch her again. EVER" I have him on the ground. Now its my turn to kick his ass. "I'm so sick of you!" I keep hitting him. I stand up and grab Annabelle. "Are you okay? Did he touch anything. I mean obviously. He touched you but I mean... anything else." She shook her head. "No he raised my shirt but... didn't get to anything." Her sobs start to break out and pull her close to me. "I'm sorry.."
I walk out of my class just to see Annabelle making out with Jason. I can feel the anger boiling inside me as I turn and walk I don't stop. "Is this what I get? Is this what I get for cheating on her? For cheating on all of them?" I run down the steps of the school. "Is this pay back?" I get to my car. "I told her not to say anything though. I was going to break up with her."
