I crawl to my bathroom and lean back against the wall, trying to quiet my sobs.
My phone ringing echos throughout the bathroom.
I shakily reach for it and look at the contact. Calum. Of course. I pick it up and put it on speaker. "Hello?" I say as calmly as possible.
"Ariana." Calums voice fills the bathroom.
"Y-Yes?" My voice cracks.
"I'm so sorry...please come back."
"I can't." I reply.
Two weeks pass and I have only been talking to Calum through text. Which is basically talking to Luke.
Everyday Calum begs me to come back. I always make up a lie, but I'm sure he knows that its not the truth.
I go to Starbucks,when I know Calums off.
So, I went today. I walk into the small shop and see Luke.
"Hey, Luke." I smile weakly at him.
"Hi Ari." He says and waves.
"So, Calums home alone?" I ask him. "Or are his parents home?"
"Nah, he's alone. He doesn't want to talk to me anyways." Luke sighs.
"Well...why? What'd you do?" I ask.
"Nothing. He just won't come out of his room unless you text him and he needs help replying." He says quietly.
"D-did I overreact?" I ask. "I mean like..." I trail off when a familiar face catches my eye. "N-no..." I whisper. Ryan. And a girl.
I quickly look down so he doesn't see me. "Luke. Luke that's him. That's Ryan." I say and point over at him.
Luke pulls me over the counter and into the back room. "Stay."
I nod and sit down in a small chair.
After about ten minutes, Luke comes back. "C'mon, my shift is over..I'll take you to Cals." He says and hands me my Starbucks.
"Is he gone? Is Ryan gone?" I whisper shakily.
"He's gone." Luke nods. "C'mon."
I follow him out of the shop and onto the streets.
We walk for a while until we get to Calums house. Luke unlocks the door.
We walk inside to Calum passed out on the couch. Luke chuckles a little as Calum let's out a snore.
"Go...what are you waiting for?" Luke smiles at me.
I walk over to Calum and straddle his waist.
Calum eyes flutter open. "Luke? What the fuck?"
I giggle and shake my head. "It's me Cal. It's Ariana."
"Ari." He moves his hands to my cheeks. "Ari!" He pulls my head down, connecting our lips in a passionate kiss.
I kiss him slowly and run my hands up his chest. "I missed you so much." I whisper.
"I missed you too baby...I'm so sorry." He whispers back.
I pull away a little and shake my head. "No. No baby its okay. I was just over reacting. I'm so sorry for leaving you."
He nods and rubs my back. "I'll never touch you like he did."
"I know Cal. I'm so sorry." I bury my face into his chest and inhale his scent. I missed his smell.
He wraps his arms around my back and I smile.
"I-Calum I want to go on that date. Please." I whisper.
He nods. "Let's go."
"Okay." I smile and peck his cheek.
He smiles widely and I get off of him.
"Where do you wanna go baby?" He asks and stands up slowly.
"Not anywhere too fancy. I'm wearing jeans and a tank top." I giggle.
"How about...mcdonalds? No I'm kidding." He says.
"That sounds good." I say quietly and laugh a little before taking his hands in mine.
"You really wanna? We can." He says.
"If that's okay with you, I don't like big fancy dates." I whisper.
He nods. "Luke I need money." He says.
Luke chuckles and pulls out his wallet. He hands him a one hundred dollar bill. "It's a hundred dollars. Go crazy." Luke says.
Calum bites his lip. "Now let's go."
"I can drive us there, or we can walk." I say and guide him towards the door.
"let's walk." He smiles.
"Okay." I say and peck his cheek before opening the door and walking him down the driveway and to the sidewalk.
We walk down the street and towards McDonald. I squeeze his hand.
"Are you still..are you still mine Ari?" He asks quietly.
"I'm yours Cal. Only yours." I reply.
He smiles widely and squeezes my hand back. "I lo-I-I'm glad your still mine." Cal stutters a little.
I look over at him and smile. Just say it, Ariana. I take a deep breath. I can't.
"We're here." I say quietly and open the door to McDonalds for him.
He walks in and I lead him over to a table. "I'll order. What would you like?" I ask.
"I want two cheeseburgers. Please." He says quietly and starts to tug at his hair a little.
"Is something wrong?" I ask.
"No. Nothing wrong." He whispers and smiles weakly.
"Okay." I sigh. "I'll be right back."
He nods and I walk up to the counter. I order as quickly as I can and take our food back to the table. "I didn't know what you wanted to drink so..I just got you Sprite." I say and set his food in front of him.
"Thank you." He says and I unwrap his food for him.
I set one of the burgers in his hands and he smiles.
I put a straw in his drink. I pick up his hand and place it on it. "You're drink is right there okay?"
He nods a little and brings the burger to his mouth. After he takes a bite he opens his mouth to speak. "A-Ariana I need to tell you something."
"Yeah? Tell me." I look up at him.
He takes a few deep breaths. "Ari over the last few weeks..I have been thinking a lot and well..I-I think I l-love you."
