In case any of you were wondering, no I'm not dead. I just disappeared for a week bc of school and I SINCERELY APOLOGIZE but I hope this chapter will make it up for all of you cause it was fun to write. Last time I checked I had like 30 views and I can't tell you how surprised and happy it made me seeing it has 239 views now.
My dad looked a lot like me. Physically. Same facial structures, deep brown eyes except he had a beard. I can't imagine myself with a beard, it'd be so weird. I can't grow facial hair anyway.
Luke was talking to him. My dad was wearing a tux like I imagined he would, and had his arm wrapped around a woman's shoulder. It was very difficult for me to see my dad holding a woman that isn't my mom. It just seemed so...wrong, in so many ways.
"Ah, Calum !" He exclaimed happily when he finally noticed me standing in the doorway.
The woman standing beside him glanced at me then at my dad. She was short and had short, straight black hair.
"It's good to see you,son, I missed you," he said with a small smile.
"Well I didn't. I wonder why, though. Oh,maybe it's because I don't know anything about you at all ?" I snapped.
Seeing him so calm and unaffected made me boil with anger. Luke shot me a warning look but I decided to ignore him. So I turned on my heel and walked off.
"Calum, come back," my dad said sternly.
"Don't tell me what to do. You can't make me do anything." I continued walking.
"Yes I can. Come back and show your step-mother some respect," he growled.
"I have nothing to do with her. And no you can't."
I heard Luke mumbling something about having to go and I continued all the way to my bedroom. It hasn't been a day since I arrived here and he -my dad- was making my life a living hell already. I should have seen that coming.
I sighed as I arrived to my bedroom and placed my hand on the doorknob, then heard faint crying in the background. I was really sleepy and tired, and must have been hallucinating. Or so I thought.
I woke up to the annoying ringing of my phone, which was 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' by Green Day. One of my favorite bands.
I picked up without looking at the caller's ID.
"Calum !" Mali-Koa's voice rose excitedly on the other line.
"Mali !" I said in the same, high-pitched tone but a lot less excitedly, which made her giggle.
"What's up ?"
"Nothing much, I had a fight with dad, made a friend, ate food, life is still going on...What about you? How's mom?"
"That seems...interesting. As for me, I'm mentally beating myself up because I regret not saying goodbye to you, and mom was crying all morning but she's asleep now."
"Hang on, what time is it ?"
"I don't know, but I do now it's past my bedtime. But I'm sacrificing a few hours for you, though you're an ass," she snorted.
"Damn, it's the morning in here," I chuckled.
I heard a knock on my window and looked at it to see Luke's face squished against it. I screamed in surprise and he grimaced.
"Calum ? Calum! What's going on ?" Mali asked, concern in her voice.
"Um, nothing, talk to you later, alligator," I forced a chuckle and hung up before she could protest.
I opened the window and Luke sighed in relief, jumping inside and collapsing on my bed.
"How did you get up here ?" I asked as I looked down the window. It was too high.
"I flew up," he said in amusement.
"Haha, very funny. Seriously, though, how did you ?"
"I told you, I flew up here," he insisted. "Did you not know blondes could fly ?!"
"Whatever," I rolled my eyes and close the window.
"So, you ready ?" Luke asked, stretching.
"Ready for what ?"
"We're going shopping with Mikey !" he said excitedly like a thirteen year old girl.
I love Luke omg. So yeah, this is it. I'll try to update later on today if I can, I'll do my best BUT I dont guarantee anything.
