4. 4

I woke up with a terrible headache. I couldn't remember a single thing from the night before. When I finally opened my eyes, I looked around. "Oh no," I thought to myself. "There's no way..." I was used to waking up in Calum's room - we had a lot of sleepovers - but I was not usually naked. I started freaking out. Cal's big, strong arm was tightly wrapped around my waist and I couldn't seem to get out his grip without waking him. I squirmed and fidgeted until he finally woke up.

When he opened his eyes, he looked at me and casually said, "Good morning." Seeing me naked made him do a double take. "Did we..." he said worriedly. I looked at him and nodded slowly. "At least it was you and not Luke," he laughed. "We should go tell them what happened. I don't want any lies between us," Calum said. I agreed. Our conversation was cut short by the sound of the door opening. I quickly pulled up the sheets to cover myself and in walked Mikey. I had never been more humiliated in my life. "What the fuck did I- are you two together now?" he spat out. "No we're not. We both got really wasted last night and this was the result of a lot of vodka." I uttered. "We were about to come tell you guys what happened." I added.

Mikey just looked at us with a blank expression on his face. "Don't look at us like that. You were probably fucking that blonde you were kissing earlier." I was hurt. I loved Michael and what happened with Cal was obviously unintentional. To be honest, I was well aware I slept with Calum. I was upset and over exaggerating. Just because Michael was getting some, didn't mean I had to release through Calum. To be fair though, I had been in love with Mikey for such a long time, so whenever another girl gets near him, I lose control.

"As a matter of fact, I- Cal can I talk to Lynn for a second?" 

"Yeah, sure. I need to shower anyways."

Calum walked out of the room and Michael came and sat down next to me, as I pulled the sheets up to cover myself even more. "Lynn, what's going on?"

"Michael, you were saying?"

"No, I want to know what's going on."

"Nothing's going on, Mikey. You were speaking?"

"Well, I was going to say that I stopped kissing her about five seconds in. I saw a different girl who meant much more to me than she did. So no, I wasn't having sex with that girl. As for the one I cared about, well she disappeared. I couldn't find her."

I wanted to just fall apart in that moment. There was someone he wanted and I couldn't be her. At the same time I was relived that nothing had happened between him and the blonde. It hurt way more to know he probably loved someone and I could never be her. 

"Now you, there's something wrong," he said.

My heart started beating at warp speed. "I'm fine. What are you talking about?"

"Stop bullshitting me. I've known you my whole life and you expect me not to know when you're sad? Is that what you think of me?"

"You didn't say much about Cal and I."

"Well, I've known for quite a while."

"Known what?"

"That you have a thing for him," Michael said, taking a breath.

"Oh, so you know me so well, right?"

He looked at me quizzically. "I knew it. You like him, don't you?" he asked.

"It always seemed like you two had a thing, the way you throw yourself at him. You two are always together, day and night. Let me ask you something, when was the last time you were actually at your own house? I'm so stupid for not realising earlier. Of course you and Cal are together. It's not like he ever shuts up about you for a second. You just can't seem to get enough of him, can you? I knew it," he continued.

I felt myself getting annoyed. He thought he knew me so well and he was so far off from right. It pissed me off that he thought I liked Cal and we were together? I felt myself get mad. "If you knew me so well, you'd know that it's YOU who I've loved my whole life, not him!" I angrily exclaimed. As soon as I heard what I had said, I knew I was in deep shit. I didn't even look at his face. I just got up, grabbed my clothes and ran.

I changed into my clothes and I went downstairs, tearing up. I just told the one person I loved for ten years how I felt. I'm a fucking imbecile. Impeccably stupid. When I went downstairs, I saw Ashton and Luke sitting together talking. Luke was holding an ice pack up to Ash's eye. Apparently, during the party, Ash leaned in to kiss the girl on the stairs. They made out for a couple of minutes just before her ex came in and punched Ash in the face. "I guess he wasn't over her. It's not that big of a deal."

I told Luke and Ash what had just happened with Cal and Mikey. All the boys knew I loved Michael ever since we were kids. "Well I'm proud of you, babe," Luke said. They both hugged me sweetly. "Now, tell us, how was Calum in the sack?" Ashton said, grinning. I playfully punched him in the arm. "Hey, watch your mouth. I'm pretty sure you've had enough beatings in the past 24 hours." I said laughing. "Guys? I'm scared. I really love Mikey and there's no way I'm giving him up." I continued. "If he doesn't come around soon, then he doesn't deserve you. Knowing Mikey, he won't ditch you because of this. He's a good guy," Ash told me.

Speaking of Michael, he walked down the stairs, as if planned. "We're leaving now," Luke said. "Good luck," he whispered to me. When they finally left, Michael sat down next to me. "Lynn-" 

"No Michael, I know what you're going to say. I know, we should just take some time to ourselves, maybe a break would be for the best. I know it all already. I've thought about this conversation with you before, and they always ended with you hating me. Ever since the 1st grade, I've tried to figure out why you made me feel this way. I know I'm not good enough I get it, but I want you, okay? No, I need you. Please don't hate me."

"Lynn. You didn't let me speak. I wanted to say that girl who I cared about? The one who disappeared? That was you. I've loved you for the longest time. I want you too." He blurted out.

"What?" I couldn't breathe. "This isn't funny. A prank like this is just cruel."

"I'm not lying. I really love you. In fact, I have been ever since I first laid eyes on you. I can't believe you never told me. I made it so obvious to you!"

"What? When have you ever made it obvious?"

"Oh, I don't know. What about that time in 6th grade when I tried to kiss you and you ran away laughing? What about in 8th grade when I asked you out and you brought Luke with you? And last month Lynn, just last month I asked you if you loved me."

"Mikey, I ran away because I thought you were just making fun of me. I brought Luke because I thought it was just a hangout. And I did say I loved you Mike."

"As a friend, Lynn."

"Well, I had no idea you could even think to fall for someone like me."

"Are you fucking serious? Yeah, I could never fall for someone who has the cutest laugh and smile in the world. And who could ever love someone so beautiful and perfect. It's a mystery, I guess."

We both sat there blushing until I decided to say something.

"So... what now?" I said, nervously biting my lip.

"I- I think we- I mean we could- maybe just like- go out sometime? If your down, I mean." Michael said, anxiously rubbing his neck.

"You sure? I mean, what if something goes wrong? We've been friends for our whole lives. I don't want to lose you," I said shakily.

"Nothing will go wrong. I promise," he reassured me.

"Okay, but I have to go sleep off this hangover now." We both laughed.
