And when the night gets dark, and there's no way back, I'll call your name, but it's fading, we're fading; After leaving school for nine months, Fenella is ready to go to high school again.... Just not ready to face her best friend and former crush Calum. What Calum doesn't know is that he's the father of Fenella's baby. When given the chance to raise his child, even though both parents are only 16, the opportunity is taken away when he finds out that Fenella is going out with his now ex-friend Ashton Irwin.


23. 'Accidents' Happen

You say it's no concern, 

And everything's alright

Sometimes we all get burnt

And then we try to hide

And I know, and I know, and I know 

And I know we're wrong

We should've let things slide


Calum's POV


I was surprised that Ashton asked me for his help. Especially when it came to something Fenella related.


I put my ear towards the door and heard silent sobs.


"Fenella?" I said knocking.


"Go away.." She mumbled back.


"Come on Fen, please? It's Calum. Open up."


Within a few seconds, the door creaked open and I could see a small fraction of her face. Her cheeks were red and bloated. Her eyes seemed swollen, but at least there wasn't any mascara running like the cliché scenes where a girl's make up is running when she cries. Mainly because Fenella doesn't wear make up.


I gave her a small smile. She opened the door a bit further sticking her head out.


"No Ashton?"


"No Ashton, he's taking care. It's just you and me."

She let me in. I looked around the room as if I hadn't just seen it yesterday. I sat on her bed and she sat with me.


"So.. What just happened out there?"


"Ashton, Ashton being an asshole."


"Oh come on Fen, he's not that bad. It's just because he cares. I mean, he hates me but he loves you so much that he's desperate enough to ask me for help."


Why am I defending this guy....


"Why are you defending him Calum, he's been nothing but shit to you."


It's like she could read my mind, as always.


I awkwardly out my hand on her knee and sighed.


"Fen, sure he may be an asshole at times, but like I said, it's only because he loves you. Why I'm defending him? Because I can see how much you really love him. He makes you so happy and he's been here for you when I couldn't be. He can do so many more things than I can. It's not that I don't love you or anything, but Ashton, you two make each other just so happy and-"

She pulled away. I don't think she was in as much shock as I was in, but I wasn't the one who committed this crime.


"I've been wanting to do that since the first day we met. I'm sorry, I just wanted to know what it was like." She said, looking away from me now. I distanced myself a bit to loosen the awkwardness.




"You're right. I should just forgive Ashton. Um, thanks for the talk. I appreciate you sacrificing me for someone who is so mean to you."


I guess I was still stunned by the moment because I couldn't tell if that last part a real apology, or just plain sarcastic.


I was talking, she kisses me, she pulls away. She leaves. Wonderful.
