I walk side by side with Luke,talking about the band." I'm so happy for you guys.",I say. And it's true. They were becoming bigger. It was their dream. Suddenly, I'm lifted up off the ground. I know it's Mikey.
"MICHAEL GORDON CLIFFORD!!! YOU PUT ME DOWN RIGHT NOW!!!". He's running now. Oh god. I slap and kick,but he doesn't stop.
"It's okay,Charles. We'll be there in a minute!",he says. I go limp. Just hurry. We stomp up the porch steps of his house. I hear his mom chuckle.
"Michael,what are you doing to poor Charlie?",she asks. I laugh as we slide through the door.
"Experimental Purposes." I'm carried up to his surprisingly clean room. It's not like Mikey to be neat. He sits me on the counter of his bathroom. "Two colors, Char." I frown.
"What?". He shakes his green hair.
"Two colors." I nod and think for a little.
"Red and Silver.",I decide. He nods and dips my head back. Oh no. What have I gotten into... Luke bursts into the room along with the rest of the boys. He looks relieved.
"What the heck,Mikey!". I sit back up and turn in the mirror. Red and Silver streaks run through my hair. I like it. I hug Mikey and thank him. I twirl around.
"How so I look?",I ask. Luke nods and I blush.
"You look beautiful,love."
I sit straight up,breathing fast. Times like these make me wish he didn't leave. But he did. I need to face that. He's gone. I look over at the cheap alarm clock I bought. 10:35. It's time to get up anyway. I trudge over to the bathroom and brush my teeth. I can't stop thinking about him. But I need to. It hurts less.
I put my hair in a haphazard bun. Throwing on a Ramones T and some ripped skinny jeans,I grab my phone and go to Instagram. Someone's posted something on my page. I frown and look at the picture. It's of me. Under a red umbrella. There's a boy under it with me,holding the handle.
I look at the comment under it. Going to see an old friend today. So excited. By Calum Hood.
I look closer. Calum Hood? Oh no. Why does that name sound so damn familiar? Calum Hood. I search the name on google. "Calum Hood. Bass player in new band 5 Seconds Of Summer." I stay there frozen. Calum Hood... Ashton Irwin... Michael Clifford... Luke Hemmings...
I jump up."WHAT!!! WHAT IS THIS LIFE?!?!",I scream. I run downstairs and hear the doorbell ringing. They're here. I run back to the bathroom and let my hair down,shoving a grey beanie on my head. Done. I put on a little eyeliner and mascara. Perfect. I walk back downstairs and smile as my favorite four little weirdos stand before me.
Mikey immediately picks me up. "Charlie!Your still colorful!",he says, gesturing to my hair. I nod.
"Of course." He sets me back down and I'm in another hug. I sniff as Ashton's arms wrap around me. "I missed you." He nods and gives me a cheesy grin.
"You need some more pizza. Damn,you're skinny girl!",he jokes,whistling. I shake my head,smiling. I hear someone clear their throat. I turn and see Calum's big,muscular arms outstretched,waiting for me. I give in and hug him. He smells like the beach. I breathe in. God,I missed these guys. He pulls away and looks in my eyes.
"I missed you a lot. You okay?",he asks,wiping the tears streaming down my face. I nod. I take a deep breath and smile. I missed them. I shiver,felling as if someone's watching me. I turn and look into those blue eyes.
Luke stands against the wall, and I realize I'm not hugging him like I did everyone else. I step forward and bite my lip. Luke turns away from me. I gasp. Don't cry,Charlie. Don't let him see you cry. I walk up to him and look into his eyes.
"Hello,Lucas. Nice to see you,too.",I say and run up the stairs to cry and be the coward I really am. ~~~~~~~~~
