38. Calum Hood One Shot


Remember when we said “forever”? We must have been 10 or 11 and we were on the swings, talking about what it would be like when we were still best friends in the grown up world.

Now you’re half way across the world and we haven’t talked in a few years and sometimes I think our younger selves would be disappointed in us.

But we were young, we were naive, we didn’t know anything, we didn’t know how much the world would change us.


3 years, that’s how long it had been since you had seen Calum. Right from pre-school you had been best friends and then he joined a band, he became known and left to travel the world. You had stayed in touch for a while but it just stopped after that. Girls all over the world loved him and you were obviously forgotten by him. Sometimes you thought about calling him but you never did. He obviously had moved on and you had to do the same. You had to forget that you had been his best friend for over 10 years, you had to forget about him.

Calum was in L.A. He had finally turned 18, he could drink legally in Australia, he was finally an adult but it didn’t feel the same to him. You weren’t there to celebrate with him. He hadn’t thought about you in a while and he wondered how you were, what you were doing. It had been a long time since you last talked and he missed you. He knew it was his own fault for not staying in touch but sometimes he missed you and he wished he had stayed in contact with you. 

Calum threw himself back on the hotel room bed. Luke mumbled something incoherently at the other side of the room and Calum took his phone out of his pocket. He scrolled threw his contacts and finally landed at the name he wanted. He pressed call and held the phone to his ear.

Your phone vibrated in your pocket and you took it out. It was a number you didn’t recognize but you answered it anyway.

"Hello." You said.

"Y/n! It’s Calum." came the voice you knew so well.

"Hi Calum. How did you get my number?" You asked. You thought he would have gotten rid of it a long time ago.

"I got all my contacts from my old sim put on my new one." He replied.

"Oh, well how are you?" You asked. No matter how much you had wanted to talk to him it was a bit awkward.

"I’m good. I’m finally eighteen." Calum said.

"Your birthday was today wasn’t it? How could I have forgotten. Happy birthday Cal." You said.

"Thanks. I thought of you today." He said. "Do you remember when we were 13 and we said that we would throw a huge party when I turned 18? I remembered that today and it kinda made me think about you. I miss having you around." He admitted.

"How do you even remember that?" You asked.

"I remember everything from when we were younger. I just wish I had gotten drunk with you on my birthday. You know I always thought we would end up together when we were younger. I always wanted you to be my girlfriend." Calum said.

"What?" You questioned.

"I just thought I would tell you all this because you probably won’t talk to me again after this cause I just forgot about you but I love you y/n. I kinda always did and I’m sorry that I broke my promise of forever." He said and the phone line went dead.

"Calum?! Calum?!" You said but you knew he was gone. He was gone from your life and you couldn’t get him back.

You remembered when you had made that promise of forever, you had been on the swings together and promised each other that even when you were grown up that you would be best friends. Forever, that was the deal but you knew now that those little 10 year olds would be disappointed in the both of you. But you were young when you made that promise, you were naive and you didn’t know how much the world would change you both.

6 months later

You sat and looked at your phone, you had saved his number that day just in case he ever called you back but he never did. Maybe you really did have to move on but how could you when he had said that he loved you. The truth was that you loved him too, that’s why it hurt you so much when he left. You had a broken heart, he had left and stopped talking to you but now you had the chance to tell him how you felt.

You pressed call and held the phone to your ear.

"Y/n?" Calum asked when he picked up.

"Hi Calum." You said.

"How did you get my number?" He asked.

"You called me about 6 months ago. Do you not remember? It was on your birthday." You replied.

Calum thought back for a moment and remembered then, he was drunk and had called you but he didn’t remember what he had said to you.

"Yeah I remember calling you. Whats up?" He asked.

"I want to tell you something. Actually I’ve wanted to tell you this for about 5 years but I never had the courage to do it." You said.

"What is it? You know you can tell me anything y/n." He said.

"I love you too." You said and hung up.

Calum stared at his phone and realized that when he was drunk that he had admitted his feelings for you. He quickly pressed call and held the phone to his ear.

"Why did you hang up?" He asked when you answered.

"I don’t know. I just didn’t know what to do." You said.

"I’m gonna be back in Sydney in three weeks. Do you want to meet up then?" He asked.

"Yeah, I’d like that." You replied.

"I’ve gotta go y/n cause I have a show in an hour but I’ll talk to you tomorrow. I love you." Calum said.

"I love you too." You mumbled and hung up.

Those 10 year olds wouldn’t be disappointed in you now, you thought as you smiled. Finally you had your best friend back and now he was more, he loved you and he hadn’t changed much at all. He was back in your life and that’s all that mattered to you.
