Claire was an exchange student form America sent to Australia. She had great grades an amazing boyfriend and a perfect life. What happens when she has to leave that all behind and meets one boy who changes everything?


2. Ch.1•Meeting Him

•Claire's POV-

I walked out of the boarding center into the airport. I am supposed to be meeting some guy named Calum who is going to be showing me around the town and school. I waked around and found a Starbucks. I ordered a venti Carmel frappe and walked over to a waiting area. I sat down and plugged my phone in. About 15 minutes later a cute tall boy with a sign that said "Welcome Claire" on it. I grabbed my carry one bag and walked towards him.

"So I'm guessing you Calum?" I said smiling

"Yup. Are you Claire?" He said grabbing my back pack and putting it on his shoulder.

"Yeah." He was dressed really nicely. He had on black jeans with knee cuts and an muscle tee that said army on it. He looked much better than me. I had in some brown uggs, grey sweatpants and a plain white crop top. My hair was in a messy bun and I had the usual mascara and eyeliner on. Other than that I hated makeup.

"Let's go get your suitcases." He said walking towards claims.

I had 3 large suitcases. He grabbed two and I grabbed one. We walked out to his car. He put everything in the back and I sat in the passenger seat while he drove.

"So today I am going to take you to the house where you will live for you time over here. It is very close to mine and in walking distance. I will pick you up tomorrow and every day until your car gets here from America. If you need anything just text me." He handed me his phone and I gave him mine. We inserted each other's numbers in our phones and afterwards. I fell asleep.

After what seemed like forever I woke up to Calum shaking me.

"Here we are." He said with my door opened and his hand offering to help me get out. I took it and stepped out to reveal a beautiful moderate house.

"So cool thing about this house is it uses cards and no keys." He he slid a card in a black case across a square panel near the door.

After a tour of the house and putting my stuff away and getting myself settled in, Calum invited me to his place for a movie and pizza. We drove my a near by pizza parlor and picked up 2 medium pepperoni pizzas.

When we arrived at his house we walked inside and went straight up to the third floor.

"Similar to yours, my dad is usually on a private mission. He just left for a 10 year one about two months ago. My mom lives with her friend who is paralyzed and assists her. My older sister Mali-Koa is at a college in Perth and comes by in vists from time, so in reality I live alone." He said smiling. We walked up to his room and he pulled up Netflix on his laptop

"You can pick." He said putting another slice of pizza on his plate.

"I hope you like scary because I picked the woman in black ." I said with a smile

A little into the movie Calum started asking questions

"So tell me about yourself." He said staring at me.

"Well when I was three years old my mom died in a car crash. She was nine months pregnant with my sister Isabella but neither of them made it. Ever since then I lived with Mrs.Grace. She was my nanny since my dad always had business trips. When I was 15 she died also of old age. Ever since then I kinda lived in my own. My dad would sometimes come and check up on me. Then I was offered to come here and I did. After that I met this really cute boy named Calum. I am at his house right now and he's an amazing guy and I might be developing a crush on him." I sad with a smile

"That's sweet." He said blushing.

After the movie was done I grabbed my phone and helped him clean up.

"Hey um I know we just met and everything but um that movie was really freaky. Do you mind if I come home with you?" He said scratching the back of his neck.

"Sure." I said excited. I think I like this Calum guy. Oh shoot. I forgot about Brandon. I forgot about him. He was my boyfriend. When Calum was done packing clothes and stuff for school.

"Ready?" I asked

"Ready" he said walking out the house.

When we arrived at my house I opened the door and walked upstairs to my room. I had a double king so it was big enough for about 4-5 people comfortably. After we got changed we got in bed and turned off the lights.

Calum was on his phone and I was on my laptop. I received a Skype call from my best friend Kylie.

"Hi!" I said happy to see her face again. I have seen her for a week.

"Hey. How's Australia?"

""Great actually. I like it more than I expected."

"So it's nothing like you said it would be?"

"What do you mean?" Calum was now raising an eyebrow

"Remember? You said you never wanted to go to that hell hole place filled with-"

"Ah ah ah forget that part." I said with Calum now chuckling.

"Its actually a beautiful place. Amazing people and hot boys." I said turning to wink at Calum


"How's it in Clai? How's your mom?" I said. Kylies's mom hadn't had the best past. After her dad abused her mom, her and her little sister killing her little sister, her mom never told anyone except me. He came back and kidnapped her mom. He abused her again and burned her. Her mom was now in the hospital again. She was my best friend since birth. We were born in the same hospital at the same time. Our moms were actually best friends since 4th grade. They went through three whole life together. After my moms death Kylie's mom had no one to talk to except for maybe me because I was closest to my mom. After she sorta skipped a beat and then some other things started happening and then she lost all control. Kylie was going through depression and they would come with me to my mansion (not to toot my own horn but once again my father is a big deal.) to get away from her dad. I'm scared that he will come after her next.

"Fine I guess. My dad hasn't been around in a while which is a good thing. By the way my mom and I wanted to thank you for all the money you left us. You really didn't have to." She said

"Yes I did. You guys mean a lot to me and I mean what the hell am I supposed to do with so much fucking money?!?" I said laughing

"I miss you. You need to visit me. I'm all alone."

"I knowww. I miss you too babe. I gotta go because it's late here and I have school tomorrow. Love you honey I'll call you tomorrow."

"Ok. Bye love you too." She hang up the phone

"I promise one more Skype call and in done ok?" I sad talking to Claum

"No worries love." He said in his cute adorable australian accent

I called my boyfriend Brandon. No answer. I tried again. He picked up but no camera

"Hey babe. Turn your camera on."

"Uhh yeah, hold on." He said.

When he turned on his camera, his hair was a mess and he looked like a reck.

"Why do you look so messed up?" I asked . One thing he makes sure he is spot on about is his appearance.

"No reason." He said cracking his nuckles something we both do when we are nervous

"Hey babe can we finish the movie" a voice in the background said

"Are you cheating on-" before I could finish my sentence a girl came and sat on his lap starting to kiss him.

I hang up the call and texted him

"We are so over. I knew you were bad for me 💔."

"No babe please. Let me explain. It was a one time thing."

"How could you? You promised you wouldn't..."

"I'm so sorry. 😓"



" No. Fuck you Brandon. Goodbye enjoy your fucking life."

I told Kylie what happened and slammed my laptop closed. I started crying and Calum saw.

"Hey hey hey what was that all about?" He said cuddling me

"My boyfriend cheated on me." I said crying into his chest. He was shirtless and his abs were solid.

"It's ok. He was a dumb ass jerk to leave someone as fucking hot as you. You are way better than him and you deserve better."

He started to sing Lullabies by All Time Low

Make it a sweet, sweet goodbye -

it could be for the last time and it's not right.

"Don't let yourself get in over your head," he said.

Alone and far from home we'll find you...

Dead - Like a candle you burned out;

spill the wax over the spaces left in place of angry words.

Scream - To be heard, like you needed any more attention;

throw the bottle, break the door, and disappear.

Sing me to sleep, I'll see you in my dreams,

waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

Forever's never seemed so long as when you're not around

it's like a piece of me is missing.

I could have learned so much from you but what's left now?

Don't you realize you shot this family a world of pain?

Can't you see there should have been a happy ending we let go?

Sing me to sleep, I'll see you in my dreams,

waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

Sing me to sleep.

Sing me to sleep.

Sing me to sleep.

Sing me to s...

Sing me to sleep (You've taken so much with you...)

I'll see you in my dreams, (But left the worst with me...),

waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

His voice was sweet, deep and soft. And right there, right then I fell asleep in Calum's arms.
