Just Another Love Story | Calum Hood {Sequal To MBBF}

Daniella and Calum haven't spoken since the break up, they avoided one another every chance they got. Despite Calum being one of Michael's best friend, avoiding Calum for an entire year was actually really easy.
Forgetting him suddenly got quite easier after she met Greyson and moved on... but Calum still managed to make his way into her life.

Daniella thought she moved on from Calum.

Around the World and Back

We fall apart before I say goodbye, but it's quite the opposite this time. Yeah sometimes I can't help but say, I'm falling in love and it's scaring me.

____

D A N I

 

I sat alone at the kitchen table with a bowl of cereal I didn't have the appetite to eat.

"Hey, you okay?" Mike's voice rang in my ears, pulling me out of my trance.

"Y-Yeah, I'm fine." I lied, giving him a weak smile as he stare over at me with concern in his eyes.

"Are you sure? You don't-.. you don't look very good Dani." He gave me a look I really only ever gotten when I was either going through a bad time.

"Yeah." I lied, nodding my head as I looked down at my cereal one again.

 

God this sucks. Michael is the one person I trust more than anyone but I can't tell him about Calum sneaking into my room last night and telling me how he feels. Who knows how Mike would react..

 

"So your birthday coming up in a few days? Anything special you want to do?" He asked, sounding extremely interested.

"Not really," I replied honestly, shrugging my shoulders, "it just means I'm heading off to college in a month." I sighed, thinking about the college I didn't want to go to.

"What the hell? A year ago you were stoked about going off to college. Now you're saying you don't want to go." He said confused.

I sighed, thinking of my response, "well you know I told you about my acceptance letter from Cal Arts?" I asked, getting a nod in reply, "I never told mum about it."

"Why not?" He asked confused, furrowing him eyebrows at me.

"Because she was damn excited when I got a letter from the University of Sydney saying that I could go there for college. I didn't want to make her upset if I tell her I'd rather go all the way to California to major in photography." I sighed running my hand through my green hair.

"Just tell her Dani. As long as you're doing what you love she'll be happy-"

"Mike.. you have no idea how hurt she seemed when I started talking about colleges. You're gone enough as it is, just think how she'll feel when I'm on the other side of the world." I told him.

"Who's moving to the other side of the world?" Mum asked, walking around the corner and into the dinning room where Mike and I were.

"Tell her. You deserve to do what you love," Mike mumbled to me.

I nodded in reply, "Mum... I want to go to Cal Arts instead of the university here." I said nervously, biting my lip, I waited for her response.

"Dani, isn't it too late to apply? First semester starts next month."

"I already got accepted. I applied half way through year twelve," I told her, looking over at Mike, "I'm planning on going for photography... and a while back, Mike told me I might be able to go on tour with them and take pictures like Hoeg does." I added, hoping whatever I was talking about would help.

"When do you leave?" She asked.

"Three weeks from now." I replied, once again looking over at Michael. Who only gave me a reassuring smile.

Mum smiled in reply, "I guess I better go tell dad the news," she walked over and gave me a hug.

I hugged her back but I could tell mum wasn't entirely happy with me.

She then walked out of the room without another word.

 

I sighed, passing my uneaten bowl of cereal over to Michael, "have it. I'm go out for a bit." I told him, standing up from the chair I was sitting in to get my keys.

"Where you going?" He asked, already eating the cereal.

"To go hang out with Grey and Zach." I answered, grabbing my keys off of the kitchen counter, walking over to the door to get my shoes on.

"Zach?"

"Grey's twin brother." I answered, slipping my Vans on, "bye." I said to him as I opened the front door.

"Use protection!" He yelled at me as I began walking out.

"Fuck you!" I shouted back laughing as I closed the door behind me.

Surprisingly for the first time, Grey and I were making out in his room. We were on his bed and I was laying underneath him, his arms holding himself up above me as his lips made a mark on my collarbone.

"Grey," I breathed out as a knock on his door was heard

He didn't say anything back, nor did he seem to care about the door. He just continued to leave him mark on me.

"Grey, the door," I mumbled out.

Hearing him sigh, he got off the bed and headed towards the door. I sat up and ran my hand through my hair, bring it over my shoulders so the hickey Grey just made was hidden incase it were his mum that was outside.

 

Thankfully, it was his Zach who was standing outside the door.

"Damn dude you're hair is a mess." Zach chuckled, looking past Grey and over towards where I was, "so is Dani's hair and her shirt... and your bed. You two were about to screw, huh?" He asked us laughing.

I blushed, looking down at the hardwood floor.

"Shut up." Grey told Zach, "what do you want?" He asked, his voice sounding deeper than Zach's.

 

Trust me, when I first these boys I thought they were the same person because seen them with each other. But after spending an entire year knowing them both. The differences they had were amazing. Grey had light browns and Zach had dark brown. Grey was taller and slightly more muscular while Zach was an inch or two shorter. Although the differences were very little, they were there.

 

"Mom wanted to me to ask if you two were hungry," Zach answered, "but from the looks of it, I think you were trying to get rid of your hunger a completely different way." He added, giving me a wink.

My cheeks burned and I looked away from the two.

 

I heard both boys chuckle, "whatever, we'll be there in a bit," Grey told Zach before closing the door on him.

He turned back and looked at me, "sorry about Zach.. he doesn't entirely know what space means." He laughed, sitting down on the bed next to me.

I laughed and shook my head. I sat there, not moving as he moved my hair off my shoulders. His finger lightly running over the mark he gave me afterwards.

"I'm actually find of surprised you let me go this far," he chuckled, leaning over to kiss my cheek.

I smiled and turned my head, letting my lips touch his. His hand cupped my cheek and suddenly thoughts of last night ran though my head.

I can't believe I did that.

Guilt washed over me and I pulled away from Grey, kissing his cheek to cover up the fact that I couldn't bring myself to kiss him.

 

"Wanna get some food?" I asked smiling.

"Can I eat you instead?" He asked, the goofy grin on his face telling me he was joking.

I shook my head and laughed, "no."

He laughed, moving my hair to cover up his mark once again, "I think you should leave that covered until my mom goes to work," he said, intertwining our fingers together.

I followed him out of his room and into the kitchen were a box of pizza was sitting on the table.

 

"Oh, Dani. I didn't know you were here." Grey and Zach's mom Faith said with a smile.

I smiled back, "yeah, it's been a while since I was here."

"Grey told me you're going off to college in a few weeks. Where are you going?" She asked.

"Me and my brother were talking about it and I decided to go to California for photography." I replied as Grey handed me a slice of pepperoni pizza.

"That's great," Faith said smiling, "neither of my boys decided where they want to go." She said, giving them both a look.

"Hey, we trying to go to the same place," Greyson said defensively.

"Us twins are gonna stick together!" Zach exclaimed loudly, making me laugh.

"That's true," Faith laughed, "don't want my boys drifting away from each other.

After using the bathroom, I walked into Grey's room. Seeing him looking at my phone with a confused look. I got a strange feeling in my stomach.

"Why is Calum calling you?" He asked, looking up at me.

 

Shit... should I tell him? Ugh, I might as well.

 

"Promise you wont get mad?" I asked.

"Babe... why would I get mad?" Greyson asked, setting my phone down on the bed, letting it ring as he moved to stand in front of you, "you're not leaving me for him..... right?"
"No, of course not," I replied, "I would never do that to you."
"Then why would I get mad?" He asked, looking down at me, nervousness and curiosity in his eyes.
"Because I kissed him." I mumbled out, looking down at the floor, disappointed in myself.
"Why?"
I sighed, "he told me he still cared about me and that it's been hell without me and shit. I kinda got mad and told him he had to move on. And he told me he'd try to move on if I kissed him one last time-" I tried explaining but Grey cut me off.
"He fucking used you babe." He pointed out the obvious.
"Yeah I know," I sighed, shaking my head at myself, "I get it if you're mad-"
"The only person I'm mad at is him Dani. Because while you were rambling off about you wanting him to move on, he took the opportunity to ask you to kiss him because he says he's going to move on if you do so," he rambled off.
"I'm not going back to him if that's what you think," I told him, looking up at his light brown eyes
"I hope you don't," he replied, moving closer to me, wrapping his arms around my waist.
I wrapped my arms around his neck awkwardly.

 

"I love you," he blurted out, his and my eyes going wide as he said so.
"Shit. I didn't mean for it to come out. I-I understand if you don't feel the same-" I cut off his rant with a kiss.
He kissed me back with a passion I only felt once. But that one time was with a person I'm not proud. "I love you," he blurted out, his and my eyes going wide as he said so.
"Shit. I didn't mean for it to come out. I-I understand if you don't feel the same-" I cut off his rant with a kiss.
He kissed me back with a passion I only felt once. But that one time was with a person I'm not proud. 

 

"I love you too," I smiled up at him.

He smiled and kissed my forehead. "Grey, I'm dropping Zach off at Xavier's on my way to work. I'll be back tomorrow morning. Goodnight, love you," We heard Grey's mum yell before the sound of the front door slamming and a car engine start and disappear in the distance.

"Hey," Grey mumbled, resting his head against mine, "can I..?" He asked, sliding thumb under the strap of my tank.
I took a deep breath before I took a step back. Biting my lip, I slipped my shirt over my head, dropping it onto the floor.
"God, you're so beautiful," he whispered as his body drew closer to mine.
"I'm yours," I whispered back quietly, giving into him as he warm soft lips touched my neck.
He led me to the bed and gently laid me down on my back. I watched as he took his shirt off, throwing it somewhere in the room.

I didn't know what to do. I was feeling things I never experienced before as both his hands and lips roamed my body.
Then, one thing led to another, we were both complete naked and I was completely lost in the moment.

"That was great," Grey chuckled out, playing with my hair as I laid my head on his bare chest, "I didn't hurt you, did I?" He asked, looking down at me worriedly.
"It hurt at first.. but isn't it supposed to be like that for every girl." I said, ignoring the fact that I've spent the whole day with Grey, and a couple hours more... and I knew that by the time I got home, Mum, Dad, and Mike would be pissed at me for being gone so long.
"I don't wanna leave," I sighed, looking up at him.
"Then don't," he replied, kissing my lips softly.
I chuckled, "my mum would kill me." I said as his arm tightened around my bare waist.
"If my mom walked in any moment and seen us like this, I would be dead," he said, glancing down at our naked intertwined bodies with only a sheet covering our bottom halves. My chest would definitely not be covered if I wasn't lying on Grey.

"Can I drive you home?" He asked curiously, staring down at me.
"What about my car?"
"It'll give you a reason to come back tomorrow." He smiled down at me.
I chuckled a bit and smiled.

"Hey," I said to Michael as I walked in through the front door.
"Hey," He called back as I noticed the boys were here.
"So, what'd I miss?" I asked, taking a seat next to Mike on the couch.
"Not much-" Mike replied, pausing when he looked over at me, "What's that? And that? And that?" He asked, slight anger in his voice as he pointed at my neck, jawline, and collarbone.Uh-"  I mumbled, pulling the collar of my tank up to cover the hickeys.

I can't believe I forgot about those.

"What'd you and Parnell do?" He asked, the anger in his voice getting more obvious by the minute.
"N-Nothing." I stuttered, "can we change the subject?"
"No, not now. Did you have sex with him?"
I didn't say anything because despite whether I lied to him, he would still know the truth because of how red my face was getting.
"Dani's growing up on us!" Ashton exclaimed loudly. Him and Luke laughing but quickly stopped when Mike sent a hard glare their way.
"I'm going to kick his ass." Michael muttered angrily under his breath.
"Why? You didn't see me getting pissed off at you when you lost your virginity some groupie," I said, as a joke, ignoring the look he gave me and the loud "ooooh"s Luke, Ash, and Calum were calling out.
"She wasn't a groupie," he argued, chuckling at me.
"I know," I chuckled back in reply. "How was it? Considering it was your first time."
"Did it hurt?"
"Did you like it?"
"Would you do it again?"

"Shut up," I told Luke and Ashton, "I'm not having this conversation with you guys." I said seriously, looking at all of them.
My eyes couldn't help but linger on Calum a little longer than I should have.

He looked at me with hurt eyes.
I don't see why this hurt- oh shit... I-I can't believe I forgot about that. Now I understand.. but I don't get why he feels the way he does."I'm going to get something to drink, you boys want anything?" I asked them, standing up from the couch.
"Got any beer?" Ashton asked.
I looked over at Mike questionably and he nodded.

"I'll take one."
"Me too."
"Yeah, me too please."

"I'll help you," Calum said, standing up and following me into the kitchen.

Without a word spoken in him, I grabbed four beers out of the back of the fridge, expecting Calum would want one too.

"Why'd you do it?" He suddenly asked as I grabbed the bottle opener.
"Do what?"
"Give him your virginity?" He asked a more clearer question.I paused, contemplating whether or not I should tell him.
"Because after realizing some things, I finally understood that being with Greyson would be much better than being with a guy who walked out on me and didn't speak a word to me except for the time where we made out in his hotel room before his girlfriend found us." I answered, popping the bottles open as I spoke.
"It hurts that you think he can do better than me." Calum said, walking closer to me.
"I'm not falling for your tricks Calum." I said sternly,  slightly baking away from him.
"What tricks?"
"Just fuck off Calum," I snapped, pushing him back once he was close enough.

I grabbed three of the beers and stormed past him, heading back into the living room.
"Here," I thrusted the bottles into each of the boy's hands angrily before I stomped my way upstairs and closed myself in my room.

I am completely done with Calum's shit.
Three weeks can't seem to come any faster, can it?

Knocks were heard on my door.
"What?" I snapped loudly, wondering why the hell I was such in a pissed off mood over something that someone said.
"It's me." Michael walked inside, closing the door behind him as he did so.

I glanced over at him before burying my face into the pillows.
"What do you want?" I asked, my face still buried in my pillow so it sounded more muffled than I hoped.
"To know what's wrong." I heard Michael respond, "you were just happy and shit, then you left the room and came back pissed off. What happened?" He asked, the bed dipping as he sat down next to my body.
I turned my head to face him.
"Calum's kind of a dick, you know. The other night he claimed he still love me, he kissed me, snuck into my room and kissed me again. Then when he found out I lost my virginity, he acted some way and- I don't know. I just don't like having him here. It bothers me enough that he 'still loves me', I don't want him trying to think he can win me back." I replied, talking quickly to get out what was on my mind.Mike stared at me for a moment, thinking of something to say.


"He's not lying when he says he loves you. If I'm being honest, ever since he lost you, he hated everything. He said he didn't want to be with any other girl because they didn't have the same eye color, the same laugh, the same smile, or the same anything as you. When he looks at you, there's this look in his eyes that is unnoticeable, it's like nothing I ever seen out of from Calum." He paused on his rant, "I've known the dude since I was fourteen years old Dani. I never seen him feel things for or look at a girl the way he feels about and looks at you."

I didn't say a word, because.. well, I didn't know what to say. Mike wasn't the type to get like this. And I should know, I grew up with him my whole life.
"I'm not saying you should give up everything you and Greyson have to be with Calum. I'm saying that... when Calum says something like that, he means it."
I know he does, I fell in love with him remember?

I nodded, not know what I should say.
Mike patted my back and stood up, "if you feel like coming back downstairs, we'll be in the man cave."
I nodded again as in an "okay."

He gave a weak smile before walking out of the room, closing the door behind him.

Curling myself up into a ball, I reached over and grabbed the black and white picture of Greyson and I. Steph took this of us to help me out on my portfolio for Cal Arts. I ended up liking the picture so much that I just kept it for myself.
The picture showed Grey and I at the ocean at night. Grey's back was facing the camera, him wearing his usual clothing, a snap snapback, a random gray t-shirt, and some basketball shorts. Considering he was holding me in his arms bridal style, you couldn't see anything other than my bare legs, my head which was wearing a snapback I stole from him, and my arms which were wrapped around him. I hid my face in the crook of his neck and the scenery around was just a black sky with hardly any stars shining, white waves, and sand that hardly showed any color.

Seeing a tear land onto the picture, I hadn't realized I was crying until now. Nor did I know why I was even crying. Wiping my tears, I set the framed picture back on my bed stand.
I laid my head back down on my pillow and began to think.

If Michael was telling the truth about Calum, then why hasn't he told me himself?
What's going to happen once I leave for college?
Will Calum finally leave the thought of us ever being together alone once I go?
What about Grey? What will happen to us?

Questions swarmed through my mind and it all just got too much. My head was pounding was a headache and I forced myself to sleep.
