15. Ch.15 • You Aren't A Complete Asshole

Calum was refusing to tell me where we were going. I had asked him at least 3 times and each time he seemed to act as if he hadn't heard me.

"This probably classifies as kidnapping." I muttered.

"You voluntarily came into my car and agreed to go with me, that doesn't count as kidnapping." Calum said.

He then turned the radio up louder and continued to drive to the unknown destination.

I huffed in response to him before turning away from him to look out the window.

"Don't be mad at meeeeee." Calum whined.

He then took one of his hands off the stealing wheel and placed it on my upper thigh.

"Don't do that." I said, secretly wanting him to continue.

"Why?"

"Because I'm supposed to be mad at you."

When I said that Calum glanced at me, flashing me one of his devilish smiles. He then began to rub small circles along the inside of my thigh making my anger towards him slightly fade away.

'Get it together Andrea' I mentally told myself. I had agreed to see if Calum could be a nice person and there was no way I was going to restart our horrible pattern.

"You don't even have a reason to be mad at me." Calum pointed out.

"Yeah I do." I lied.

"Oh really? What might that be princess?" He asked.

"Shut up." I replied, my cheeks beginning to redden.

Calum was aware that I didn't have any particular reason to be angry with him and he seemed to enjoy flustering me with his stupid pet names that he knew I had a thing for.

"I would love to continue this conversation but we have reached our destination." Calum said.

I looked out the window and saw that we had pulled into the parking lot of the humane society.

"Why are we here?" I asked.

"I volunteer here nearly every weekday and today you get to help me." Calum answered.

Calum started to get out of the car so I began to as well. He waited for me on the side walk until I neared him.

We then started to walk towards the building's doors. I was extremely eager to see how Calum acted during this since there was no way I'd have ever expected him to do this kind of thing.

As we approached the door Calum reached for the handle and opened it for me.

"Wow, you're already being nicer." I commented.

"Ha ha." He fake laughed as he closed the door behind himself.

The sound of barking dogs was heard the second we stepped in the building but thankfully it wasn't too loud.

"Hi Calum." A blonde haired guy greeted. He looked to be at least 25 and was quite short.

"Hey." Calum replied.

"Who'd you bring with?" He asked.

"This is Andrea, Andrea this is Hayden."

We exchanged hello's and shook hands before Hayden spoke again, "It's about time to feed the animals, I assume you want to take the dogs."

"Well you know me." Calum replied, slightly blushing.

"Alright then, you know what to do."

Hayden then began to walk away towards where the cats were.

"I hope you're more of a dog person." Calum said.

"I like them both, but dogs are a little better." I replied.

"That's good then."

He then started walking the opposite way that Hayden had.

"First we have to grab these name tag things so that we can get in. The dog food is in a supply closet in the kennels so we'll start when we get in there." Calum explained.

"How many dogs are there?" I asked.

"Last week we had about 31 I think, which means we probably have either 2 less or 2 more today."

Calum stopped walking when he reached a bulletin bored and looked for what I assumed to be his name tag.

"I don't have a tag though, so what am I suppose to do?" I asked.

"You can have a visiting volunteer pass, it's for people who are only helping out once or twice."

"Alright."

Calum then grabbed two tags off of the board and handed me one.

"You ready?" Calum asked.

"Yep." I replied after I clipped the tag to my shirt.

"Then let's head in."

I followed Calum down a little more of the hallway until we reached a door that was labeled, 'dog kennels'. He opened the door and we were instantly greeted with the sound of even louder dog barking.

"Hey guys." Calum said to the dogs in the front.

There was a row of about 10 kennels but only 6 of them were occupied with a dog. All of the dogs were a medium size, two were black, and the other for were brown.

"Give them each one scoop of dog food and I'll do all the water." Calum said.

"Should I just drag the bag as I go?" I asked.

"That's what I usually do."

Calum handed me a large scoop and I began to give each dog their food. Their bowls were all close to the front so I was able to just pour their food through the bars of the kennels.

Quickly I began to get into a pattern of scooping the food, dumping into the bowl, petting the dog, and then moving on to the next.

At first Calum had been keeping up with me but soon he began to fall behind since he stopped at each dog and just pet them for much longer than I did, keeping an adorable smile on his face the whole time. For a moment I stopped and just stared at him. In the years that we had gone to school together I couldn't recall any time he seemed to be even close to as happy as he looked now.

After a moment I broke out of my daze and continued my simple routine with dogs, finding a new sense of joy in doing so.

About 15 minutes had passed before I realized I was nearly done. There were only a few more dogs left that I hadn't feed, but Calum was still a little ways behind me.

I poured food into the last bowl, and then looked back at Calum.

"I finished." I announced to him.

"Ok." Calum replied, seeming completely zoned out of the conversation.

"Calum."

He didn't even respond to me this time he just continued to pet the dog while smiling and speaking to it in a way you'd talk to a baby.

"Caluuuuum." I said again as I walked over to him.

"Huh?" He replied quickly glancing up at me.

"I finished." I repeated.

"Nice, just give me another minute. She's my favorite. Don't tell the other dogs though." He said, whispering the last part.

"It's strange seeing you be this adorable." I commented without thinking. "Wait, that was weird."

He laughed at my response before replying, "Well I'm used to you being adorable."

I was now blushing with both embarrassment from saying something dumb and from his compliment.

"Uh, thanks."

We were silent for a moment before Calum spoke again.

"Do you still think I'm an asshole?" He asked. When he had asked me the similar question earlier he had a joking tone, but this time I could tell he genuinely wanted to know what I thought.

"No. You aren't a complete asshole." I answered.

"I was really hoping you'd say that." He grinned.

"Why do you even care about what I think of you any way?"

"Because I like you a lot, and if you think I'm an asshole how am I supposed to get you to like me?"

I was instantly taken back by his answer, not knowing how I should reply.

"I get that you don't like me the same way though, you're interested in that college guy or whatever." He muttered.

"Him and I aren't a thing." I blurted.

"Are you sure? You weren't exactly acting like that earlier."

"I'm sure." I answered, "I like this other guy anyway."

"Oh. He's a lucky guy then." He replied, clearly not getting the message I was sending.

"You're so dumb." I said under my breathe.

"Hey, that's not nice."

"Well you aren't getting what I'm trying to tell you."

"And what's that?"

"You're the lucky guy Calum." I said, poking his shoulder.

"Really?" He asked, his eyes instantly brighting up.

"Really."
