30. Mali To The Rescue

July 1, 2011

 

Claudia's POV

 

I was sitting in the food court at the mall with Luke, Cal and Michael. 

"So is this good?" I asked.

I showed them drumsticks, Ashton's favorite candies, headphones and a new pair of washed out greyish blue converse.  

"That's good. More than what we got!" Answered Michael.

I laughed. It was for our 17th birthday. I just bought all this stuff today, I'm now wiped out, I've been saving for 4 months to get him his present. He deserves it though and I don't regret a single penny.

"Can we eat now? I'm hungryyyy."

"Shut up Luke." Me and Calum both burst into giggles.

Mike and Luke have an odd relationship. They picked on each other for as long as I can remember, but you would see in their eyes that they never meant it and they really loved each other, as just friends, of course.

We finished our food and headed back to Calum's house.

I walked in the house behind Calum and dropped my bags on the floor. We headed upstairs to hang in Calum's room as usual.

"Calum, are your parents home?" said Michael.

"No, just Mali, I think, why?"

"Good, cause now we can do this-"

Michael quickly threw me over his shoulder and ran into Calum's room and threw me face first on the bed. The other boys already knew this old 'tradition' and followed his lead. First a pillow on my back, then Luke, a pillow, what would be Ashton but now Calum, pillow, and Michael.

"OH MY GOD I'M DYING. YOU GUYS ARE SO HEAVY THIS IS NOT FAIR. WE ARE NOT 12 WE ARE ADULTS. NOW GET YOUR ASSES OFF OF ME!"

"No!" They all said in happy unison.

"Okay. MALI! MALI COME HELP ME! I'M BEING CRUSHED!"

"What's wrong? Wait, where are you?"

"Under here" I stretched out an arm and waved.

"Oh my god, not again." She pulled me out and she held a pillow to her stomach and jumped on Michael.

"Awe! What the fuck!"

I grabbed a pillow as well "Sorry in advance Mali, BOYS PAYBACK IS HERE!" I jumped on top of the tower of bodies and pillows earning screams from the boys to be released from our pressure.

After a minute of Mali and I crushing the boys and beating them in their own game we all got off and sat on the bed and Mali went back to her room.

"I'm so done with this game." Michael said to my satisfaction.

"Let's play FIFA." Calum suggested. 

The boys took the 3 out of 5 controllers, one for each of us, but I was never one for paying video games but I was happy watching them. I loved watching the boys play, because they would concentrate so hard that Michael wouldn't even move the long, blonde fringe strands out of his face as often as he does, and Luke's mouth was open in awe and concentration, big blue eyes never leaving the screen and would pump his fists at every goal, and Calum gnawing at his lip and cursing at every foul move. If Ash were here, he would not be playing FIFA, but he purses his lips and giggles at the smallest things when he does play video games.

I was finally home and I just finished wrapping Ashton's gifts. I couldn't wait to be 17.
