"hey cal, I want you to finally meet my sister. come to mine tonight." luke asked me because I was one of the only people who were single in year 9. "yeah sure." I reply.
"hey mads, come down for a minute quick!" luke loudly called to her as I heard heavy footsteps running down the stairs.
"omg luke you scared me I thought something bad happened." a small voice said of a girl dressed in a hoodie, shorts and a messy bun. gee, she was attractive. ive seen her before at Luke's but never really this close.
"haha no sis, I want you to finally meet calum." luke says looking at his smaller sister.
"hey im maddie."
"hey im calum." I softly say back looking at her in the eyes.
"is this calum who you never shut up about and can I go up to my room now?" maddie groans.
luke grins and says, "only if we come."
maddie sighs and walks up to her room as luke and I follow.
her room was cute. it's was painted black but all her walls were pretty much covered by posters.
maddie sits on her bed and luke sits next to her. I sit on a chair on the opposite side of the room because who wants a boy you just met on your bed.
it was awkwardly silent so I cleared my throat," um maddie so why don't you go to Norwest?"
"uh um well I-I got into a selective school and I wished that I didn't." she sounded nervous.
luke stood up "well I might get some good or something."
leaving maddie and I together alone.
"so uh do you like these bands? who's your favourite?"
"well blink-182 is cool." maddie says. I get up and find Luke's room and grab the first guitar I see and bring it back to maddies room. this time I sit next to her bed instead and start strumming the guitar.
"what is your favourite song?" I ask.
"I miss you."
I start playing the intro for i miss you and start to sing..
the angel from my nightmare,
the shadow in the background of the morgue,
the unsuspecting victim...
I finish the song and maddie stares at me in shock.
"wow calum I had no idea you played or sing! that was amazing!"
"do you?" I ask back.
"well I do sing but I can't sing and I've waited ten million years for luke to teach me but he's not gonna."
"here." I say putting the guitar on maddies lap and wrap my arms around her to reach the guitar. I start teaching her how to play but she's struggling. "don't worry, you'll eventually get it and I can come over anytime to teach you. we should head down now." I say the last sentence walking out the door but maddie grabbed my hand and stopped me. I could've gotten out of her grip but I didn't want to be rude.
"uh calum I need to say something."
I sit down next to maddie.
"uh calum I think that-that your cute."
