"I bite my tongue but I wanna scream out,
you could be with me now,
but I end up telling you what you wanna hear,
but you're not ready and it's so frustrating
he treats you so bad and I'm so good to you it's not fair," I just woke up to here Calum singing quietly. I tried to fight the urge to smile, I loved heading him sing, it was one of my favorite things to see when I went to see boy's show in Aussie.
"And when the phone call finally ends,
you say, "I'll call you tomorrow at 10,"
and we're going in circles again and again,
I know someday it's gonna happen
and you'll finally forget the day you met him
sometimes I'm so close to confession,
I gotta get it through your head
that you belong with me instead," he sang, giving a sigh as he finished.
"I know you can't hear me... but I think I might love you... no, not love you... I think I'm in love with you. But I know I can't tell you yet... the problems you have right now between Michael and even Jayden," I listened, Calum's voice sounded disgusted as Jayden's name left his lips, "but right now I'm hoping you forget his name every time you're with me. I hope one day you realize I can treat you way better than he ever did." He murmured before I heard footsteps, a door opening and closing before it went silent again.
Calum... loves me. He actually loves me.
I opened my eyes, realizing I was laying in Calum's bed. I sat up, Calum definitely left. I pulled the covers off my body, throwing my legs over the side of the bed.
I looked at my appearance in the mirror he had in his room. My hair was a mess. I was in one of Calum's band shirts and in my spandex. Thankfully, I wear spandex under my jeans a lot. Thank the Lord, yesterday was one of those days, I definitely would not want Calum to see my Spider-Man boy shorts. Or that would've been embarrassing.
I walked out into the hall, my bare feet very cold against the freezing floor. I heard Adam's Song by Blink-182 playing downstairs, I knew Calum was downstairs. I made my way down the stairs and into the kitchen. There Calum was, his back facing me. He was shirtless and wearing only a pair of black basketball shorts.
"Morning," I made myself acknowledged.
He turned around, walking to me with a smile plastered on his face. I admired his body as he made his way towards me. Everything thing about this boy was beautiful. His smile, his eyes, his personality, his body, his voice... everything pretty much.
"Morning beautiful," he smiled, wrapping his arms around my waist, leaning down he kissed my forehead.
"Don't make me blush," I smiled, looking down, praying my cheeks weren't a shade of pink.
His voice thumb and forefinger gently grabbed my chin, tilting my chin up to look up at him.
He leant down, his lips dangerously close to mine. Before his lips could brush against mine, the sound of the doorbell ring, interrupted us.
Calum pulled back and sighed loudly, "I'll be right back," he mumbled, walking towards the door.
"Luk-" I heard Calum but then got cut off.
"Is it true? Please tell me this is a sick joke Michael made up," I heard Luke basically beg as he barged in past Calum.
"Is what true?" I heard Calum ask as I made my way into the living room, to watch something on the tv and also to eavesdrop some more.
"Yesterday he looked furious when he was leaving. Ash asked him what happened and he just yelled and said you fucked his sister," I heard Luke exclaim.
I can't believe it. Why would Michael say something like that? Especially that of all things. I'm his little sister and Calum's his best friend. I understand he thinks of Calum as family. But it's our life... shouldn't we be able to say what goes and what doesn't? If Calum and I actually do become a thing... shouldn't he be happy about that? I mean, come on, he's always complaining that Calum should get a girlfriend already. He's says it's because he always steals his video games and never gives them, he says it's because of boredom. But from what Calum told me last night is a totally different story. He told me it's because Michael gets pissed off at Calum because he's always checking me out, which made me blush as he told me.
"No way," Hearing Luke shout, brought me out of my thoughts. I looked up and over towards the door to see him staring at me.
"So you two did hook up?" Luke exclaimed, talking mainly to Calum.
"What?!- no! Why would you say that?" I exclaimed, even though I already knew the answer.
"Well... from what I see, it looks like you're wearing only one of Calum's shirts right now, he's half naked, you two are here alone, and..." He trailed off, "yeah that's about it," he shrugged.
"How many times do I have to tell you?" Calum groaned, "we didn't hook up. She just helped clean my busted lip and ended up staying the night. That's all," he clarified, sounding already annoyed with Luke.
"Where'd you get a busted lip?" Luke asked him confused.
"It's a long story," I said, running my hand through my not-so-messy hair.
"I've got time," he said, sitting down in the love seat while Calum sat down next to me on the couch.
The both of us told Luke the entire story, him only nodding every once in a while.
"So let me get this straight," he paused, "your ex-boyfriend hit you and you called Calum. He came and got you... you kissed. The next day, you came over with Michael. You came up here and talked about it... then you made out, Mike caught you and that's why your lip is cut and you're here," he said but it came out questionably.
"Pretty much, yeah," Calum nodded. I haven't even realized his arm was wrapped around me.
"Damn," Luke mumbled before he started laughing hysterically.
He just wouldn't stop.
"Are you okay?" I asked, trying my hardest not to laugh.
He nodded, "yeah, it's just funny how you and him are dating," he said.
"We're not dating," I interjected before Luke could open his mouth and continue.
"And even if we were would it be that terrible?" Calum asked Luke, raising an eye brow at him.
"No, no, I didn't mean it like that. I'm just saying," Luke paused, "I'm look at her Calum. She's a ten and you're like a six and a half," he smirked, winking at me.
I blushed madly and looked down.
"Hey! Don't make my girl blush!" Calum exclaimed, half heartedly joking.
"So she is your girlfriend!" Luke almost shouted.
"No!" Calum and I shouted in unison.
"Seems like it," Luke leaned back in his seat, crossing his arms over his chest.
I decided to do something I knew both Calum and Luke wouldn't expect.
"Can you just fuck off and deal with your own shit for once?" I groaned, my head falling back on the back of the couch.
Not hearing a word from either of the two, I looked up.
Their mouths were hung open, their eyes wide, they looked seriously surprised.
"What?" I asked confused.
"You-...you fucking swore!" Calum exclaimed.
"Not like you don't ever do it," I said back.
"They grow up so fast," Luke said, pretending to wipe away a tear.
Both him and Calum started laughing. I just smiled and shook my head.
"Say it again," Calum begged.
"Fuck...?" I murmured confused, the word coming out more of a question.
"Yep, it's official," Calum started, "I love you," he said but it came out more of a joke than I was hoping for.
I just laughed lightly, trying to pretend that that didn't hurt me in any way.
"So is this your first time swearing?" Luke asked me.
I shook my head.
"No, it's not," I said and it was the truth. It's not the first time. I just try and act innocent around these guys.
"Well what else have you done that we don't know about Daniella Jaye Clifford?" Luke asked, "if that's even your real name," he joked.
I grinned evilly, "well... I did get drunk not too long ago, it's been a while since the last time I did." I said but got cut off by Luke.
"You drink?" He asked surprised.
I nodded, "now shut up and let me continue." I exclaimed.
"When you guys are on tour, I go to more parties than you can even imagine, I would sneak out constantly to Jayden, and whenever I felt like it I'd ditch school," I told the two.
"So you're basically a good girl gone bad?" Calum asked, raising his eyebrows as he smirked.
"Uh," I paused to think about it, "I guess you could say that," I shrugged.
"But you're fluent in French! Isn't that the hardest language to learn?" Luke asked me.
"Ce sont à la fios très vrai Luke," I spoke, making the two confused. I just smiled.
"Your voice sounds amazing when you speak in French," Calum smiled, pecking my cheek, "say something else, please," he begged.
I thought for a moment.
"Calum... pourquoi tu ne vois pas Je t'aime aussi?" I asked though I knew he wouldn't even know what I was saying to answer.
"Tell me what you said," he murmured, looking in my eyes.
"'Calum... why do you always have to walk around shirtless'?" I lied.
"Why, do you like it?" He asked smirking.
"Pourquoi même la peine de demander , vous savez que je fais," I smirked, knowing he'd never get what I said, even if he tried to learn.
"I'm gonna take that as a yes," Calum said.
The rest of the day, the three of us spent the day playing video games, watching movies, and Calum and Luke making me speak French. In conclusion, it was a very good day. I'll definitely grow to love days like these.
It's definitely worth it.
