My Brother's Best Friend | Calum Hood

One call could change a lot of this. A single call could mean you have a baby in your family, or it could mean you lost a family member, or it could mean your going to miss an upcoming football game or UFC fight. But in this case, my one call... basically changed my entire life. I now know who I'm in love with... but I also know he's the one who will shatter my heart in millions of pieces.

It was midnight, I was waiting at the "spot," and as Luke promised, he was standing here with me.

"I can't believe I'm doing this," I murmured, saying it only loud enough for me to hear.

I jumped slightly when I heard a familiar female voice basically scream in excitement.

"I missed you!" She exclaimed, running towards me, wrapping her arms around my waist.

I glanced over at the door behind her, maybe I should just leave.

"I haven't seen you in forever! How've you been?" She squealed, pulling away from me.

"I've been better." I said with no emotion. I don't want to be here and I want her to understand that.

She frowned for a quick second before plastering on a fake smile once again.

"I truly missed you, and Luke and Ashton." She smiled, "oh! And Michael," she acted surprised when she said his name, "how is he by the way? Still trying to pass off that punk rock phase?" She asked in an innocent voice.

I groaned, "just cut it out already Alexia You know why I'm here. Let's just get it over with." I snapped.

She looked at me surprised before giving me a smirk.

I stood and stared down at Alexia, showing her no emotion what so ever.

"What's wrong Cal?" She asked, wearing a devilish smirk.

"You know why I'm here." I said sternly, sending a glare at her as she walked closer to me, making an attempt to sway her hips in a seducing way. As if it was going to work, I have a girlfriend now, and nothing is going to change how I feel about her.

I watched as she stood directly in front of me, rolling my eyes when a giggle came out.

"I love the new tattoos." She told me, biting her bottom lip, "man, I wonder what it must be like to have those strong arms wrapped around my thighs one last time." She closed her eyes, licking her lips.

"Alexia!" I snapped, pulling her out of her thoughts.

"Come on Cal, can't a girl have a little fun?" She asked smirking, circling me. I stood, keeping my eyes forward as I didn't know what to do.

"Not that I would call what you're been doing fun." I told her.

"Oh my god. Don't start that shit with me. You used to be the same way. Going out to parties with me, smoking dope, and fucking a different girl every night." She stood in front of me, looking up at me angrily, "that was until Michael came along and let that bitch of a little sister ruin everything for us!" She shouted.

"There wasn't anything between us!" I shouted back at her.

"Oh yeah! Then every call, every kiss, every late night sneak out, every trip we took together, every 'I love you' meant nothing?" She asked angrily.

"Everything changes at some point. Nothing last forever, and nothing stays the same," I exclaimed at her.

"Then what is she?! Just fuck buddy to you?!" She screamed at me.

"She's my girlfriend Alexia." I said, groaning. This conversation is going on longer than I wanted it to, "so leave me and my girlfriend alone from now on." I told her sternly.

"Wow," she said surprised, "girlfriend. I guess they really do change." She sighed sadly, turning to walk back the same way she came from.

"Why does it matter to you?" I asked her before she got far enough so she wouldn't be able to hear me.

Alexia stopped and stood there, not turning to face me or walk any further. "Because maybe I might still in love with you." She said quietly.

I didn't have enough time to think before words just started leaving my mouth, "Alexia, wait." I said, jogging up to where she was at.

She turned around and looked up at me, raising her eyebrows at me a questionable look.

"You can't love me. It's impossible, I was really messed up then. I've changed. You don't know who I am anymore." I paused, looking down at her, "I'm in a relationship now... with a girl who I really care about. A girl who I don't want to lose." I mumbled, "and no matter what you say or do can change how I feel about her. So take the damn post down and move on already." I ordered her, clenching my jaw when she smirked up at me.

She chuckled, "you've made a big mistake Calum," she smirked evilly before turning around and leaving the building.

I stood there, trying to process what she just said.

Then, out of nowhere, she came walking back into the empty room. Someone following out behind her, wearing all black. The black hood covering their face so I couldn't see who it was.

"How does it feel Hood?" His voice asked, "now I'm fucking your prized possession as well." He said in a very smug tone.

"Who says she's a prized possession? She's been fucked by almost everyone in the entire country that she isn't even from." I said to Jayden, "'once a whore, nothing more'." I quoted a song Dani was listening to earlier, I was surprised to know that that was one lyric I remembered so easily.

"You're going to pay for that Hood." Jayden said, stalking over to me, pulling his hood down, he pulled up his sleeves as he glared at me.

"No, I think you're going to pay, considering what I did to you last time." I glared at him. Trust me, I want to fight him. I just don't want Dani to catch onto anything when I come walking through the front door with a split lip and bruised knuckles.

Jayden stopped five or six feet away from me, "where's that Hemmings kid?" He asked.

"Why do you want to know?" I asked him.

"Knowing you, I don't really think you'd meet us without your own backup so where is he?" He crosses his arms, looking at me with a look like he actually thought what he said was true.

"Trust me, I only brought him along to help keep her off me." I paused, pointing at Alexia behind him, "I don't think that I'll ever need backup for you, so why would I need him for that?" I asked him another question. Still choosing not to answer his question about where Luke was.

"Well, I could have some guys heading to your house to pick up what's mine in any given moment so if you would like to keep her from me, I suggest you leave the warehouse right now. See how much backup you have then," he threatened me.

I glared at him intensely, "don't fucking bring my girlfriend into this." I snapped at him, "actually, you shouldn't even a part of this, this is between me and her," I said, pointing over at Alexia, sending a glare her way.

"I don't know," Jayden said shrugging, "I'm just bored of this world, kind of wanted some drama to make everything a little more fun." He said, glancing behind me at the old rugged warehouse doors.

"Then go mess up someone else's life." I told the two, walking backwards slowly to the doors so they wouldn't notice, "stay out of mine."

"Oh, when did your life suddenly become sooo perfect, Calum?" Alexia brought herself into Jayden and I's conversation as she walked towards me, "I remember you sneaking out to go and get high because you were feeling different. I remember you always calling Mike over because you needed to talk. Weren't you suicidal back then? Or are you still? I bet you still have that blade of yours in your suitcase right now, don't you?" She angrily asked me.

I stared at her tensely. I clenched my jaw, balling my hands into fist at my sides.

"I wonder what your petty little girlfriend would do if she ever found out information like that," she said smirking, as if she got an idea.

"Fuck you," I snapped at her, "and stay the fuck away from my girlfriend," I demanded, glaring at the both of them.

"Oh Calum," she showed a devilish grin, shaking her head, "I can't believe you still think I'm going to listen to you." She chuckled darkly.

I looked at her then glanced over at Jayden. Then an idea came to mind. If Jayden was so jealous when he found out Dani and I were together... maybe he'll act that way towards Alexia, I mean he does have a thing with her anyways. Eh, it's worth a shot.

"Well, it was worth saying, considering you're still in love with me and all," I said, mainly looking at Alexia, only glancing at Jayden to see if I got a reaction out of him. Which I did.

He was looking at Alexia with an angry look, then he looked at me and shook his head as he stared down at the floorboards.

"Why the hell is everyone falling in love with that asshole?" He shouted, asking no one the question.

"Maybe because I'm not insane." I said loudly as I turned and made my way towards the door behind me.

"Come on Calum," she laughed, "we're all insane. All the best people are just more insane than everyone else." She told me as my hand pressed against the ware house doors.

"Stop cheating already!" Luke shouted at me.

"Shush!" I exclaimed, "Ash and Mike are asleep you idiot," I laughed quietly at him.

"Then stop cheating," he told me, playfully shoving me.

"Who said I was cheating?" I asked him, "I'm just a better player than you are," I said, shoving him back.

We were playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer. Sadly it wasn't online but it was still really fun to play with just Luke and a bunch of bots. Of course, I was ahead of every single player at the moment.

"You wish kid," he laughed quietly.

I smiled and continued playing. The score we were aiming for was seventy and I was at 67 while Luke was six points behind.

"You're losing bro. Only three more points and I'm going to win," I taunted Luke.

"Says who?" He asked, sounding confident.

"Says the girl who now has sixty nine points." I said shrugging, "one more and I will win." I told him, shoving his shoulder with mine.

He suddenly put his hand on my knee. I looked over at him confused. He gripped it tightly.

I squealed and jumped, "why did you do that?" I asked laughing, pushing him lightly away from me in a jokingly manner.

"Because almost every human bean is ticklish there," he laughed at my reaction.

"Did you just say 'bean'?" I asked, laughing at his choice of words.

"Yes," he laughed, "yes, I did," he smiled, showing me his dimple.

I returned the smile.

"But anyways," I started, "just because you're my best friend doesn't mean you have to do that to try and cheat and beat me at a game you'll never win." I told him as I got the last kill, winning the game.

I looked over at him with a triumph look only to see him already looking back at me with a look I wasn't used to getting from him.

Then before I knew what was happening, the unexpected happened.

"Hey Ash, can I ask you a question? Like... a personal question?" I asked, walking into his room where he was writing something down on a piece of paper.

"Go for it, mate. I'm not going to judge you or anything if that's what you think." He answered, pushing the paper away.

"If there's a certain girl you have feelings for... do you tell her? Or do you just not tell her at all?" I asked, my voice sounding more awkward and nervous then it was meant to come out as.

"It all just depends on who the girl is." He said, cocking an eyebrow at me.

"Uh, I'd like to keep that classified." I mumbled awkwardly.

"Well in that case... I guess just make a move on her, see how she reacts to it. And if she thinks what ever you did was wrong or whatever, then maybe you shouldn't tell her. But if her reaction is different, then tell her I guess." He answered my question.

"Okay.. thanks Ash." I thanked him, backing up to leave his room.

"No problem. Mind telling me where the girl is from though?" He asked before I got the chance to leave.

"She's just a girl from back home, I don't think you know her." I lied as I exited his room, closing the door behind me.

I can't believe I'm doing this.

As she finished the game, I looked over at her. Seeing her eyes light up at the sight of the word defeat covering my half of the screen made me smile, even though I lost, seeing her happy is all I need for courage right now.

She looked at me triumphantly as I looked at her with an adored look. I watched as she furrowed her eyebrows before I decided to man up and just do it.

I leaned in quickly and placed my lips on hers, holding onto her waist as I kissed her.

She sat still obviously shocked. It took her a couple seconds before realization got to her and she quickly pushed me away from her.

"Luke-why did you-what the hell was that for?" She asked me, her voice panicked.

"You motherfucker," I heard Calum basically growl from behind me.

"Shit." I muttered quietly under my breath, I didn't even hear him come in. I quickly stood up off the couch and turning to look at Calum.

"Dude, I swear it's not what it looks like," I said quickly, trying to keep him from blowing up at me, or even worse blowing up at Dani.

"Don't 'dude' me," Calum snapped, "I just seen you kissing my girlfriend." He growled, clenching his fists, stalking over to me.

"It was an accident, I wasn't thinking," I told him quickly, backing up slightly, my foot knocked into a leg on the coffee table, causing me to stumble a bit

"You really think I'm going to believe it was an accident?!" He almost shouted, lifting his fist to hit me.

All I did was look away and I closed my eye, waiting for what was coming to me.

I watched in terror as Calum lifted his fist up to hit Luke, who was flinched away and didn't try to do anything about it.

No, I can't. I can't let this happen.

"Stop!" I exclaimed, standing up and moving between the two, pressing my hands against Calum's chest to keep him from hitting Luke.

"What?" Calum asked, looking down at me angrily, his clenched fist falling to hang at his side.

"It was an accident, like he said." I paused, "you can't hurt him for something he didn't mean to do." I told him, looking into his brown eyes, they now looked like charcoal because of the anger.

"How could it be a so-called accident if he had his arms wrapped around you?" He asked, shooting daggers at Luke who was still standing behind me.

"He didn't mean it. He wasn't thinking, okay." I snapped, clearly annoyed of how Calum was acting. This was his best friend for fuck's sake.

"Why are you sticking up for him anyway, I'm the one who's your boyfriend." He angrily looked down at me.

"Because whether you like it or not, he's one of my best friends and he's your BEST FRIEND." I snapped at him.

"Fine! Stick up for Luke! Be his girlfriend! I'm sick of this shit." He groaned, tugging on the ends of his hair as he turned around, making his way towards the door.

I followed Calum, suddenly scared, "no, Cal, wait. I-" He cut me off before I even had a chance to start talking.

"No. It's too late for that shit," he paused, grabbing his black Nirvana hoodie off the coat rack and keys off the table by the door.

"No, Calum. I'm not letting you leave." I gripped onto his forearm with my hand, keeping him from grabbing the doorknob.

I quickly moved in front of him, blocking the door.

"Move away from the door," Calum said, his jaw clenched as he looked everywhere else but at me.

"No," I snapped, grabbing his face in my hands, forcing him to look down at me. But his eyes still didn't look into mine, try were staring down at the floor, "look at me," I mumbled, staring at him with wary eyes.

"Calum, look at me, please," I practically begged, my voice as wary as my eyes were.

It took a couple minutes, but eventually, his dark brown eyes stared at my green ones.

"Please don't leave." I begged him, my voice shaky and nervous.

"I need time to think, Daniella." Shit. No.. no, no, no. Whenever he says my full name he's being serious.

"No you don't, you-you can stay." I told him quickly.

"Dani-" He started but I cut him off.

"Don't." I mumbled, shaking my head, "don't do that." I said.

"Do what?" He asked curiously.

"Don't say my name like your saying goodbye," I told him, "I love you Calum Hood. You told Michael you wouldn't plan on leaving me.. that's what your doing right now." I told him, running my hands through my hair.

He didn't say anything.

I looked back up at him and pursed my lips, thinking.

"Is that it then?" I asked, feeling tears sting my eyes, "are we breaking up?" I asked.

Yet again, he didn't say anything. But the way he was acting, he didn't have to reply, I already knew the answer.

We... are most definitely... breaking up... and I hated every bit of it.

"Kiss me," he paused, "one last time," he said quietly,It was almost inaudible that I probably wouldn't be able to hear it if my senses were so alarmed at the moment.

I stood on my tippy toes and cupped his face in my hands, pressing my lips to his.

He kissed me back softly. I felt him place his hands on my waist softly, too softly honestly. I didn't like it... it didn't feel real. It didn't feel like he was still with me...

"I love you." He whispered against my lips.

"No, Cal... please don't leave me." I murmured, a tear slipping and sliding down my cheek.

He pulled his hands from my waist and grabbed my hands, moving them away from him.

"Calum... please," I murmured, more tears slipping as I watched him pulling his hoodie over his head, shoving his keys in his pocket.

"Get out of the way Daniella," he mumbled, not looking at me once.

"Calum..." I started, looking down at my bare feet, "if you leave... I'll-I'll never forgive you for walking out right now." I told him.

"I love you baby girl," he mumbled, leaning down to press a kiss to the top of my head.

I shook as more tears escaped, they seemed to be never ending so far.

I slid down the wall behind me and curled myself into a little ball after he walked past me and out the front door, leaving me.

That's it. He's gone. And he's most likely not coming back while I'm still here. Which meant I had to leave soon. His job and his life was making music with his three best friends. And considering his now ex girlfriend is the sister of one of his best friends, he wouldn't be able to do that. So I had to leave. Soon.

I couldn't stop crying. The same movie kept continuously playing in my head. Over and over again. Like a record stuck on loop.

'"Kiss me," he paused, "one last time," he said quietly,It was almost inaudible that I probably wouldn't be able to hear it if my senses were so alarmed at the moment.

I stood on my tippy toes and cupped his face in my hands, pressing my lips to his.

He kissed me back softly. I felt him place his hands on my waist softly, too softly honestly. I didn't like it... it didn't feel real. It didn't feel like he was still with me...

"I love you." He whispered against my lips.

"No, Cal... please don't leave me." I murmured, a tear slipping and sliding down my cheek.

He pulled his hands from my waist and grabbed my hands, moving them away from him.'

All of the very little energy I had left in my body was fading quicker than a fucking jet. My eyes started to grow droopy. And then... I was surrounded by darkness.
