C A L U M
"Well, hello," Jayden slurred out, proving to us that he was most likely drunk.
"What're you doing here?" I growled at him, my instincts kicking in making take a step towards him and a step in front of Dani.
"Wait- hold up! No fucking way!" Jayden started laughing like a fucking maniac, "are you and her- no fucking way," he continued to laugh, not being able to finish his sentence because he ended up doubling over and laughing like this situation was the funniest thing in the whole damn world.
I walked backwards and stood next to Dani, leaning down the whisper in her ear, "go inside, tell the boys, and get upstairs." I instructed. She stared up at me like I was mad, before she nodded slightly and ran off inside.
"Damn Hood. I knew you were fucking my girlfriend but I didn't think you'd bring her all the way out to the beautiful city of L.A." Jayden paused to chuckle darkly, "wait a minute. Did you get her pregnant?!" He gasped before laughing evilly, "damn... I wonder what Mike's gonna think." He stopped talking and shook his head.
"Fuck you." I snapped at him, walking up to him.
"Oh," Jayden chuckled, "Mr. Calum Hood here is actually becoming protective over a girl." He smirked, "I was wondering when you were going to finally grow up."
"So for you growing up is being a fucking creep and stalking your ex girlfriend and following her all the way across the world to another fucking country?" I asked him, clenching my fist, just wanting to punch him in the fucking face.
Jayden looked at the ground and sighed, "you're gonna wish you never called me that." He slightly smiled before landing a blow to my jaw, forcing me back.
This was when I launched at him, punching him hard in the jaw three time, forcing him on his back, giving me an easier advantage, I began throwing punches left and right until he gave up. Then I stood up and backed away from him, looking down at the blood on hands, I suddenly felt disappointed at myself. As my back was turned away from Jayden, he got up and launched at me, throwing me onto my back, throwing heavy blows to my jaw, cheekbone, and my eye. I pushed him off of me and threw three or for heavy blows at his face before I felt someone pulling me off of him, holding me back. Mike and Ashton were at my side. While Luke was checking to if Jayden was still conscious. But I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't. The punches I threw were pretty hard.
"Holy shit Calum... what'd you do to him?" Michael asked surprised.
"What does it look like I did?" I asked, feeling blood in my mouth, knowing that my lip was busted pretty badly. I also felt something wet running down my cheek, so that also meant I had a cut on my cheek or under my eye.
Jayden pushed Luke away from him and spit out some blood he had in his mouth before smiling at me. "I like you Hood. We should hang out sometime," he told me before standing up and leaving the property.
That dude is a fucking maniac.
I took one single step towards the back door and suddenly my side starting aching like hell.
"Fuck!" I hissed in pain, my hands coming up to cover the spot where the pain was coming from.
"Come on, let's get you inside." Mike said, wrapping my arm around his shoulder before he started to help me get inside.
Once inside, he sat me down on the couch gently and instantly my hands gripped the hem of my shirt and I lifted it up to see a huge ass bruise where my rib cage was. Dani came out of nowhere and kneeled in front of me, taking my face in her hands.
"Holy shit Cal," she whispered, surprised to see all the wounds I had.
"You should've seen what I did to him," I chuckled before I groaned in pain.
"We need to get you to a hospital." Luke said, Dani nodding her head in agreement.
"No, it's just a damn bruise and a busted lip. I don't need to go to a hospital." I told them.
"Calum, it's more than just a busted lip and a bruise. The cut under your eye, it's too deep, you might have to get stitches," Dani told me, "Mike, get me some alcohol and some cotton balls," she instructed Michael, him nodding and leaving the room.
"So I'm not going to a hospital?" I asked her, grabbing her hand in mine.
"No. You're still going. I just want to clean this up a little bit." She told me as Michael entered the room yet again. He handed Dani the bottle of alcohol and the cotton balls and backed off.
Dani poured some of the alcohol on a cotton ball and began dabbing the cut under my eye, "ow, shit!" I hissed in pain.
"Hey! Don't swear!" Ashton shouted from the kitchen I'm guessing.
"Shut the fuck up Ashton!" I shouted back.
Once Dani was done, she got up and threw all the bloody cotton balls away. When she walked back over to me, she stood in front of me and held her hand out. I grabbed it, and stood up slowly, groaning in pain as I did. I wrapped my arm around her shoulder and she wrapped hers around my waist in case I needed help which I didn't, I just liked having her close to me.
*skip to hospital*
Dani, Mike and I were waiting in the room those doctors put me in while Ashton and Luke were at the cafeteria eating as much food as they could I'm guessing.
A knock on the door broke the silence in the room. Dr. Jones came walking into the room.
"Well Mr. Hood, those stitches we gave you will have to stay for two to three weeks. And that x-Ray we took of your rib cage showed us that you have a minor fracture in one of your ribs, but from what it looks like it should heal in a week or so. May I ask how all of this happened in the first place?" She asked, closing the file she had in her hands, before looking at me seriously.
"Being a dumbass." I heard Dani whisper but it was quiet enough so Mike nor Dr. Jones would hear.
"I -uh- I was protecting a girl." I awkwardly said.
"Ahh, your girlfriend so I presume?" Dr. Jones asked, putting my file under her arm as she spoke.
"Uh - yeah, let's go with that." I chuckled, trying to rid of the awkward tension that was in the room ever since we arrived here.
"Okay. Well, you are free to be discharged, you may go whenever you'd like." She told us before shaking our hands and leaving the room.
"Girlfriend?" Michael asked as Jones left the room.
"Yeah. Girlfriend?" Dani mocked Mike, a smile tugging at the corners of her lips as she spoke.
"Yeah... well that's only if you want to." I smiled at Dani.
"No," she said.
"Oh... oh- uh... o-okay." I awkwardly said, suddenly hating myself at the moment.
Dani and Mike stared laughing.
"Of I want to be your girlfriend you idiot," Dani said, moving to sit next to me on the hospital bed.
"Wow, I thought you were serious," I laughed, leaning in to press a kiss to her lips.
"Woah guys, watch the PDA, I'm still here remember." Mike spoke up as I kissed my girlfriend.
Girlfriend.. I love the sound of that.
*A Day Later*
I just woke up and Dani was still fast asleep, wrapped up in my arms. Her head was on my chest and arms wrapped around my torso, and it was quite obvious she wasn't planning on waking up anytime soon.
"Dani," I whispered in her ear, she stirred in her sleep but didn't wake up, "Dani," I whispered again.
"What?" She whispered back.
"Good morning beautiful." I whispered to her, kissing her forehead.
"Really? You woke me up just to say that?" She giggled, yawning as she sat up. I moved her so she was straddling my waist and I say up.
"Of course. As peaceful as you looked sleeping, I still wanna see those beautiful green eyes of yours." I smiled and kissed her soft pink lips. When I pulled away she was blushing like mad and I smiled even more.
"What time is it?" She asked, climbing off my lap to grab her phone but I pulled her back into my arms so her back was against my chest.
"Does it honestly matter?" I asked her, kissing her cheek.
"You've been really clingy lately." She laughed at me, turning her head to press a kiss to my lips before unwrapping my arms from her waist and walking out of the room. I sat back and sighed happily.
"Goals!" I heard Michael shout, which must mean Dani is telling him about what happen a minute ago.
"Shut up you idiot!" I heard Dani shout before her and Mike started laughing.
Before my happiness could get any better, Luke came storming into my room, "we've got a problem." He said, showing me a picture on his phone.
