nightmares and daydreams

Emma Cartwright, Calum Hood's stranger cousin, is coming home to Sydney, Australia after living most of her life in England.

I stormed into my room and slammed the door. I screamed into my pillow and started to cry. And cry and cry and cry. 

why why why why why why why why I screamed and screamed until my voice hurt. I heard a pounding on my door. I glanced over at my clock. 4:13. Mum shouldn't be home yet. I got up and threw open my bedroom door. There stood Calum. He was out of breath and looked at me in concern. I felt my lip quiver as more tears streamed down my face. He wrapped me up in a tight hug.

"It's gonna be okay." He whispered to me. He walked me over to the bed and we sat down. "It's all gonna be okay." He started humming the old lullaby we used to hear as kids. "Shhh, shh, it's going to be okay." He whispered once again. 


I woke up with my head on Calum's shoulder. He was fast asleep, his mouth slightly open. I got up carefully so I went disturb him. He just rolled over. I crept out of my room and into the hallway. I heard a noise in the kitchen. I went down the stairs to check it out. 

"Is Calum here?" It was my mum. 

"Yeah he is. He's upstairs." 

"Is he awake? We are having dinner at Aunt Joy's tonight." 

"I'll go wake him up." I went back up the stairs. When I got to my room Calum was sitting up drowsily. "We are having dinner at your house tonight." I stated. 

"I know," He replied sleepily. "The boy's are coming too." He eyed me warily. I swallowed and plastered a fake smile. 


"What happened today, Em?"

"Nothing Cal, I really just don't want to talk about it."

"So there is something to talk about?"

"Obviously you already know, you found me here after all." 

"Please talk to me Emma." I walked over to him and wrapped him up in a hug. 

"Thank you for caring Calum, but I really don't want to talk about it." I smiled weakly up at him. I am never going to want to talk about it.
