7. Chapter 7 : Unpredictable

Calum's POV

 

"Alright boys, let's play a fucking awesome show tonight," Ash said.

We agreed and I took another swig from my Corona beer.

Helen drifted into my mind.

I looked at the clear bottle that held the liquid.

This was her favorite type of beer.

Guilt settled on me when I realized I hadn't talked to her in a week.

It's killing me that I'm forgetting her.

I brought my phone out and was about to give her a call when we were told that we had to get on the stage in 5 minutes.

I silently noted that I would call Helen right away after we got off stage. 

I miss hearing her voice.

"Let's go," Luke said.

We all got up and exited the dressing room.

On our way to the stage we grabbed our instruments.

Ashton already held his drumsticks.

Luke, Michael, and I adjusted our straps on our guitars and put our earpieces in.

We heard the crowd cheering loudly.

"5sos, 5sos, 5sos, 5sos, 5sos!" 

Ashton came our first and the audience erupted into a mass of screams.

We smiled to ourselves and adrenaline pumped through my veins.

Once Ash began banging on his drums, the rest of us entered the stage and, if possible, the crowd got louder.

If only Helen was here to see this.

To see that we made it.

 

 

We had one song left and the show was amazing. The crowd was awesome and I love them.

"This last song is really special to us and we hope you enjoy it," Michael said into the microphone.

"Thank you all for coming out tonight," I continued.

"Love you guys," Luke said.

"Good night!" Ashton finished.

We began with the guitars, followed by the drums.

"She sits at home with the lights out, seeing life in different colors. I think it's time that we wake up, so let me take you away. We can run down the street,"

"With the stars in our eyes."

"Tear down this town in the dark of the night. Just open the door,"

"We've got time on our side. We can make it out alive."

"Hey, we're taking on the world. I'll take you where you wanna go. Pick you up if you fall to pieces, let me be the one to save you. Break the plans we had before, let's be unpredictable. Pick you up if you fall to pieces, let me be the one to save you."

"It took so long to convince you. I know I have to show my colors. You never wanted to be rescued, but now we're drifting away."

"We can run down the streets with the stars in our eyes. We can tear down this town in the dark of the night."

"Just open the door"

"We've got time on our side. We can make it out alive."

Suddenly the crowd erupted and began singing.

"Hey we're taking on the world. I'll take you where you wanna go. Pick you up if you fall to pieces, let me be the one to save you. Break the plans we had before, let's be unpredictable. Pick you up if you fall to pieces, let me be the one to save you."

The audience's voices echoed across the venue as they sang back the lyrics to Unpredictable. Their voices became one as if they've done this several times.

My heart swelled and I stepped back as they sang.

They're singing something I wrote.

I got very emotional.

I held the tears in.

A smile spread across my face. This is so amazing.

They're amazing.

I took a deep breath before singing again.

"Earthquakes won't wait for another day, don't say, 'I know, I never said it; I never said it.' One day we can make it out alive."

"Hey we're taking on the world. I'll take you where you wanna go. Pick you up if you fall to pieces, let me be the one to save you. Break the plans we had before, let's be unpredictable. Pick you up if you fall to pieces, let me be the one to save you."

"Let go 'til we've lost control and we'll stumble through it all. Let's do something new and unpredictable."

The crowd cheered wildly.

Ashton came up in front with us and we bowed together.

Girls shouted '5sos', 'Luke', 'Ashton', 'Calum', and 'Michael'

It all blended together and got muffled out by the screams.

"We are 5 Seconds of Summer, thank you so much for coming out," Michael said and we bowed once more.

"We love you guys!" I shouted and exited the stage.

The guys followed.

"That was insane! They sang back!" Ashton exclaimed.

"They were so amazing, I can't believe it!" I said.

Luke roughly patted my shoulder, "You're a great songwriter, Calum. You're gonna write awesome songs for this band."

I smiled, "Thanks man."

"Bring the Coronas out!" Michael exclaimed.

We cheered among ourselves.

"But first, let's meet some of the fans outside the venue, yea?" Luke asked.

We agreed and went outside the venue.

 

After a couple of hours, we were back in the hotel room.

I collapsed on the bed and pulled out my phone.

I immediately called Helen.

She picked up "Hello babe."

The sound of her voice brought me happiness once again and I sniffled.

"Calum, what's wrong?" She asked.

"You won't believe what happened!" I said and wiped a tear away.

"What?" She asked.

"The crowd sang back today!"

"No! For the first time?"

"Yea!"

"Oh my god Calum! I'm so happy for you!"

I heard the door open and close again.

Suddenly someone grabbed my phone from my hand.

"THEY SANG BACK!" Michael screamed into the phone.

He put my phone on speaker and I could hear Helen laughing.

"How are you feeling?" She asked.

"It feels surreal!" Michael replied.

"I bet!" She said.

"Give me that," I said and snatched my phone away.

"She likes me better," Michael retorted.

"You lie," I said.

"Hey, I love Mikey," Helen said on speaker.

"See!" Michael exclaimed.

I put my phone off speaker, "But you like me better, right?" 

"Calum, you're my boyfriend, I love Mikey like a brother."

I sighed in relief, "Love you too."

She giggled.

"So how are you feeling after the show?" She asked.

"It's crazy, you know? They knew the lyrics to Unpredictable and their voices came out in unison. It was amazing!"

"I'm so proud of you, I just wanna kiss you," She said.

"And what's that kiss gonna lead to?" I asked and raised an eyebrow even though she couldn't see me.

"Well if I told you'd wish you were here," She whispered.

I bit my lip.

"Well, damn."

She laughed.

"So how are things over there?" I asked.

"Good. There's a new kid at the school," She replied.

When I didn't reply, she continued.

"His name is Logan Rodgers and he just happens to live across from my house."

I sat up and suddenly I wanted to know all about this Logan guy.

"He lives across from your house?" I asked.

"Yea. He's really nice, had to show him around the school and we're probably gonna be good friends."

"Just friends right?" I asked.

"Yes, Calum, just friends. If I dated anyone else, I'd probably downgrade, you're like a damn Greek God."

I chuckled and relaxed a little.

I changed into a pair of sweats and lay back onto the bed.

I held my phone up to my ear and I started to get sleepy.

Helen started talking about random things and her voice started soothing me.

After a couple of minutes she was quiet.

"Calum?"

"Hmm?"

"Are you falling asleep?" she asked.

"No, I'm  okay. Just keep talking."

She giggled, "Cal, I can hear the drowsiness in your voice. Just sleep."

"M'kay," I mumbled.

"Good night babe. I love you."

"Love you too darling."

And I fell into a deep sleep.
