D A N I E L L A
I woke up in Jayden's arms. I frowned remembering the events that happened yesterday.
Mike not giving me a ride, him threatening to dye my hair, Calum giving me a ride than freaking out, Luke being nosy as hell, seeing Jay, and spending the night at his place.
I smiled as I thought about the last part.
I unwrapped his arms from around my waist and I sat up, running my fingers through my hair.
I got up and walked to the bathroom. Jayden has a bathroom connected to his bedroom so I didn't have to walk out and face James or anything.
I pretty much know my way around here considering it's just Jayden and James living here.
They both ran away from their parents a year and a half ago. Apparently their parents were both verbally and physically abuses, so one day they were both sick of it and ran. Not thinking once about looking back.
A couple weeks ago I remember Jayden told me his parents got arrested for drug use and possession.
"Come back," I heard Jay quietly exclaim. I turned around and seen him have his hand reaching out and grabbing the air.
"I'm going to have to go home sooner or later. My mum and brother might kill me for not coming home last night," I sighed, realizing how much trouble I'll be in.
"Just say you forgot to text," Jayden suggested, getting up and putting a pair of sweats on.
"That could work. But knowing Mike, he'd want to get to the bottom of it."
"Well, if he catches us it's not like he could do anything. Your mum is okay with us. Why can't he?" He asked, walking over to me and wrapping him arms around my waist.
"I ask that question a lot," I replied, wrapping my arms around his neck.
I stood on my tippy toes to kiss him when James walked in.
"Hey Jay- oh, hey Dani," James smiled at me.
I didn't talk to James much but I did know he was a sweet guy. He didn't like to show it around certain people but it was true.
He's just like his brother honestly.
"Hi," I smiled, turning around in Jay's arms so he was pretty much hugging me from behind.
"Anyways... Jay, can I go hang out with a couple of friends at the skatepark?" James asked Jay.
"Sure, but if you hang out with that one kid again. You're not going anywhere for a while," Jayden warned him, resting his chin on my shoulder.
"Sure thing dad," James sarcastically said. He smiled at me. "Bye Dani," he waved before he began closing the door.
"Bye," I smiled at him quickly before he closed the door completely and left.
"Now, where were we?" Jayden smirked, leaning down to kiss me and moving to the bed again and sitting down, pulling me down with him so I was straddling him.
"Jay," I breathed as I pulled away, "I need to get home or Michael is going to kill me."
Jayden sighed, dropping his hands off my thighs, "just tell him you were at Stephanie's or something," he said for what seemed like the millionth time.
"Fine," I sighed, getting off of his lap and searching for my clothes.
"What are you doing?"
"What does it look like I'm doing?" I mumbled as I was pulling my jeans on.
"Stop," he ordered, get gripping my wrist as I tried to pull my shirt over my head.
I glared at Jayden and pulled my arm out of his grip, and continued pulling my shirt on my body, ridding myself of his shirt.
I started to walk away. Only to be stopped by Jayden grabbing me by the arm again. "Let me go," I tried pulling away but his grip got tighter.
"Jayden," I whimpered as I started to feel a pain in my arm.
"Jayden stop, you're hurting me," I whimpered, a tear rolling down my cheek, trying to pull away again.
"Why're you trying to run away?" He asked, pulling me back into his room and slamming the door behind me.
"I-I'm not. I just want t-to go home for a b-bit," I stuttered, tears streaming down my cheeks because of the pain in my arm.
"Then walk yourself home, bitch," he pushed me away from him, causing me to slam into the door and hurt my arm more than it already is.
Tears started to stream down my face as I started to run throughout his house and onto the street.
I pulled out my phone and called the only person I know who wouldn't get mad at me for being at Jayden's right this moment.
"Dani?" Calum questioned, sounding like he just woke up.
"C-Calum, could you come get me?" I stuttered, more tears coming on faster than the others.
"Yeah, yeah, of course. Dani what happened?" I heard Calum get up and the sound of keys.
"J-Jayden-" I mumbled and paused. I didn't feel like saying anything else, I'd tell him later.
I heard Calum mumbled something but I couldn't quite hear what he said.
"What?" I asked, wondering what it was.
"Nothing. I'll be right there, don't move," he ordered.
"O-Okay, please hurry Cal," I quietly mumbled, tears slowly streaming down my face.
"Don't worry, I'll be right there," he assured me, before he told me he'd be there as quick as he could and hung up.
I sat on the curb, my head in my hands as I cried.
Jayden was never like this. I've only seen him like his once and that was when some guy tried to flirt with me. It ended up the two getting into a fight. That ended with the guy in the hospital and Jayden getting arrested. That was only a couple weeks ago and he's still on probation for it.
Now I know people never change.
A couple minutes later I heard a car pull up in front of me, a car door slam, and the sound of shoes making a thud against the ground as they ran.
"Dani, come here," I looked up and seen Calum sitting next to me with his arms open wide: an invitation.
I moved into his arms, mine wrapping around his torso, sobbing onto his shoulder.
"It's okay, I'm here," Calum mumbled as he rubbed my back, trying to soothe me.
After a while I finally calmed down and we were just sitting there, Calum still comforting me.
"Wanna go?" Calum asked, his hand still drawing small circles on the small of my back.
"No, I just want to sit here for a little while longer," I murmured, resting my head on his shoulder, looking up at the dark grey clouds above us.
"What hap-." Before Calum could even finish his sentence it started pouring.
I gasped as I felt the cold drops hit my back.
"Come on," Calum exclaimed, grabbing my hand in his and pulling me into his car with him.
Calum pulled us into the backseat instead of the front seats. Why? I don't know.
He reached over the front seat and turned the car on, as well as the heat.
"Here," he mumbled, handing me a sweater.
I could tell it was his because I borrowed it before and Michael almost burned it because I had it on for a while.
I quietly thanked him, slipping the sweater on.
I was still shivering like crazy when I felt Calum wrap his arm around me and pull me into his side.
"Jesus Dani, you're freezing," Calum exclaimed, pulling me closer into his side, I suddenly felt warmth from his body.
"No," I sarcastically replied, smiling slightly and rolling my eyes.
"What is Mike gonna say?" I questioned, looking up at him, suddenly remembering about Michael.
"Hopefully nothing. He doesn't know you were at Jayden's. And he won't know you were alone with me," Calum came up with a plan that'd actually work.
"Thanks Cal," I smiled up at him, using his nickname.
"No problem," he smiled, looking down at me.
I suddenly felt the sudden urge to kiss him. I didn't know why I just did. And I actually really wanted to kiss him.
Calum must've read my mind or something because he slowly started to lean in and I did too. His hands cupped my face as our lips connected. Our lips moved in sync as he pulled me closer, if that was even possible. I felt electricity coursing through my veins. It felt like the entire world just disappeared and it was just us two. I've felt fireworks as I kissed him. I've felt butterflies flying around in my stomach.
I've never felt anything like this before.
Is this bad thing?
I don't want to move but I know I have to.
After a while we both pull away and Calum rest his forehead against mine.
"Please tell me your ending things with him," Calum breathed causing me to laugh a little.
"No way in hell am I staying with him," I mumbled and we both laughed.
"Come on, let's get out of here," Calum replied, climbing into the front seat with some struggle thanks to his height but it wasn't much of a struggle.
Soon after he got into his seat, I climbed into the passenger seat without any trouble.
"Where do you wanna go?" He asked as the engine roared to life.
"Anywhere but home, I don't want a lecture from Michael right now," I sighed, running my fingers through the knots in my hair.
"My house?" Calum suggested, driving away.
"Sure," I gave him a small smile.
To be honest. This did feel wrong.
Wait- of course it would. I was just with my now ex boyfriend and then I was kissing my brother's best friend. If Michael ever knew he'd kill all three of us.
He can't find out. Not yet that is. He'll kill each one of us, one by one.
He'll probably kill me first. No... he'd kill one of them and make me watch then he'd kill me.
Why did I, out of all people, get a brother like him? He's overly protective. And it sucks. I can't do anything without him knowing about it. Literally I can't go to the mall without him knowing where I was going.
But hey. At least I know he actually cares about me. And I am thankful for that. Right?
