Two weeks.
Two weeks was what it took to fall back in love with him.
**Calum Hood Love Story.**


2. Chapter Two: Instagram It

(May 3rd)

The next day, I had to babysit the neighbors. They were going to some sports game. They have a little boy and a little girl. The boy, Ryder, is 4, and the girl, Macy, is only a few weeks old.

"Will you meet me at the school?" Calum said on the phone.

"Cal...I've got kids with me."

"They'll love it! There's a playground there, and we get to see each other without Will being around."

"I don't know...if I get caught then they'll never hire me again."

"Please." I groaned. He was right, it would be one of our only chances without Will being around

"Ryder, we're going to the park." I said loudly so that the little boy playing with cars could hear me. He ran towards me, screaming for me to get him shoes. "I'll see you soon." I said to Calum, then hung up. I got Ryder's sweater and shoes, put on my own sweater and we headed out.

I could see Calum sitting at the top of a slide, I stopped the stroller, taking Macy out. "Hey buddy." I heard Calum say, I looked, seeing him kneeling down, talking to Ryder. "My name is Calum, I'm a friend of Emerie's." Ryder wasn't a shy kid, so he talked to Calum.

"Boyfriend?" Ryder asked with a giggle. I looked at Calum to see what he would say.

"Um...I guess you could say that." He stood up and put his hand on my waist, bringing his lips to mine. I quickly pulled away.

"Not infront of Ryder, okay?" He mouthed 'okay' before looked at Macy.

"Who's this?"

"Ryder's sister. She's only a couple weeks old."

"What's her name?"


"Hi Macy." He poked her nose, she smiled showing off her dimples and no teeth. I smiled. We walked to the playground together, Ryder went and started playing by himself. "So, what all happened while I was gone? I remember you were dating Connor back in November. What happened between you two?" He asked. Connor, he's a senior this year. We started dating around December in grade 10, and I broke up with him in December this year. I caught him in action with the school prettiest, nicest, most perfect girl there is in school, Rosie. I broke up with him right then and there. It really broke my heart, because I thought he was going to wait for me. He said he would. He said he loved me, but obviously he was lying about that too.

"I caught him sleeping with Rosie." Calum knows who Rosie is, everyone does.

"What? But you guys were dating for like, an entire year."

"I know, I guess he just didn't want to wait for me."


"Tell me about it."

"You know that I would never hurt you like that, right?" I nodded.

"I know. I trust you." He wrapped his arm around me, and kissed my hair. I leaned my head on his shoulder.

Calum and I may be best friends, but it felt so right being like this. I never really thought about dating Calum, but now that I have I'm hooked. It feels like we've been dating for years, it feels right.

We stayed at the school for maybe an hour or so, then we went our separate ways. When we got the parents were already home. They got home early. They paid me which was $50, and I went home.

I walked into my moms room, about to see something that would scar me for life. I opened the door, seeing a figure in her bed, but it was bigger than her. Moans and groans filled the room, I slapped y hand over my mouth, and walked out immediatley. I heard my mom scream. What. The. Fuck.

"Emerie!" I heard her make her way to the door, so I ran to my own room. Who the hell was that? This is what my mom does when I'm gone? "Emerie open the door, please." I put my headphones on, wanting to erase the image from my mind. I decided to text Calum.

Emerie: Hi

Calum: Hey :) what's up?

Emerie: Can I come over?

Calum: sec I'll ask

Calum: yeah you can. What's wrong?

Emerie: tell you when I get there.

I quietly walked out of my room, slipping on my shoes and my jacket. I hopped on my bike, and started speeding down the road.

Joy opened the door when I got there. "Hello sweetie! It's been a while. Oh, happy birthday by the way." She said, giving me a hug.

"Thanks." I saw Calum show up behind her. She let me inside.

"You kids have fun." She said, I saw her grab Calum's arm and whisper something to him before letting us go. Once she was out of sight, I spoke.

"What did she say?" I asked.

"No funny business." We both smiled, "So, what happened?" We sat down on the couch, him pulling me closer as he laid down. I was forced to lay down with him, because he was taking up the whole couch.

"Prepare to be disgusted. I got home, and I walked into my mom's room because I couldn't find her. She was freaking having sex with some guy I've never seen before." He made a nasty face.

"Ew...what did she say?"

"Nothing, I just went to my room and ignored her."

"You've never seen this guy before?"

"No. So I guess when I'm not home all she does is sleep with guys I don't know." Let's get this clear, my mom is single, (I think), my dad died when I was 12. It was horrible. He was murdered, and I was forced to watch the entire thing. My mom and Will were out grocery shopping. I was a daddy's girl, so I always wen wherever he went. The murderer tied me up and made me watch as he slowly, cruelly murdered my dad. The man didn't kill me, but he gave me a horrible scar. A big X that takes up most of my back. He then took a picture of the wound on one of those cameras where the picture comes out. He left it for me, I still have it. People refuse to talk to me about my dad, it would just make things really awkward because I would end up crying.

"Maybe they're dating."

"No, my mom doesnt date."

"She could. She might just want to keep it from you because she doesn't want you to think that she's replacing"

"She wouldn't do that. She knows how upset I would be if she started dating."

"Another reason for her to hide it. Em, just think that maybe this man makes her happy. Don't you want your mom to be happy?" I didn't reply, just stared of into the distance. He squeezed my shoulder.

"Let's watch a movie." I said, getting up from the couch and crouching down infront of the movie cupboard. I've been to Calum's house quite a few times, so I know where most of the things are. "What do you want to watch?"

"You pick." I pulled out two movies, Radio, and Antwone Fisher, I felt them up for him to choose. "Radio." It's about a disabled black guy that gets attached to a football coach. You would have to watch it to understand. I laid back down on the couch with Calum, suddenly my phone when off. I saw that it was my mom and declined it, she started texting me so I had to put my phone on do not disturb.

I nearly fell asleep by the end of the movie, and Calum was asleep. His arm was still around me, and the other draped over my waist and holding my hand. He was snoring just a little. I nudged him with my elbow, quietly saying his name. "Cal, wake up. Calum." He slowly opened his eyes, looking around until he saw me.

"Oh, hey. Sorry i fell asleep." He said, before readjusting himself on the couch.

"It's fine. The movies over."

"Want to watch another?"

"Sure. What do you want to watch?"

"Something scary, to keep us awake."

"You know I hate scary movies."

"Come on, please?" He begged.


"Put in Mama, and I'll get something to eat." We both got off the couch, me popping in Mama. Calum came back with a pile of clothes in his arms. "You're sleeping over, right?"

"Yeah." He handed me the clothes, and I went to the bathroom to change. It was a navy blue t-shirt and plaid bottoms that were WAY too big on me. I had to pull the string thingy really right in order for them to stay up. I went back out to the living room where Mama had already started playing, and Calum was munching on some Doritos. Chubby kid.

"Awe, you're cute in insanely oversized clothes." He sad with a smirk as I sat down with him.

"Shut up." He laughed and wrapped his arm around me, pulling me closer to him.

I hated scary movies. I never liked them, never will. What's the fun in getting scared shitless? When I do watch scary movies, I can't fall asleep. I'll close my eyes for a few seconds and have to open them because I think there is a demon or something beside me. It's bad. That's why I have to listen to music when I go to sleep.

It was 9:00 when Mama ended, so we put in The Little Mermaid just for fun. That's when I fell asleep, I think we both fell asleep, because he never woke me up.

I woke up to a bang on the door, I was still on the couch with Calum's arms still wrapped around me. "Calum." I said, pushing him a bit.

"Hm?" He opened his eyes, yawning.

"Someone's at the door."

"What time is it?" He asked, preparing to get up.

"Um...around 8:00." I let him get up, and I followed him to the door. He opened it, revealing my worried looking brother.

"Is Emerie here- oh. There she is." He just let himself in. "Mom is worried sick about you Em, why aren't you answering her?"

"It's not like I ran away into the woods Will. I was just trying to erase the sound of mom moaning some random guys name-"

"Whoa, what?"

"Yeah, that's right. I walked in on her."

"Ew, seriously? I feel bad for you right now."

"Me too.." I said.

"Okay, well we better go home." He said. I sighed and pulled on my jacket and slipped on my shoes.

"Bye Calum." I said, wanting to go up on my toes and kiss him, but Will was right there.

"See ya Em, Will." We walked out, closing the door.

"You know, it's so obvious that you guys are dating." Will said as we hopped in the car.

"What are you talking about?"

"Don't deny it. The way you look at eachother, the way you act around eachother. You went to his house out of all your options. And that picture if you two on Instagram, you totally look like a couple, his fans are going crazy."

"What picture?"

"You didn't see it?"

"No.." I haven't been on Instagram in a while. I wonder what picture he posted.

"Look at it when we get home. You got a whole bunch of new followers too."

"You don't think it's weird that Calum and I are dating?"

" is a bit odd for me, seeing my best friend and my sister together, but I can get over it if it makes you guys happy." I smiled. "How are things gonna go when he leaves for the tour?"

"I don't know...we agreed to just try out dating until he has to leave, if we want to stay together we'll have to just Skype and stuff all the time."

"Make sure he treats you right, I swear if he hurts y-"

"He won't, he's Calum. I trust him, you trust him."

"But if he does, I'll rip out his organs, shove them up his ass, take them back out and flush them down the toilet."

"That's awfully descriptive." He smiled.

As we pulled in, mom ran out, dressed in a cardigan and sweats. It looked like she had been crying, and I didn't even care.

"Honey, where were you? I was worried, I was about to call the police!"

"I was just at Calum's." I said with a dull time.

"Why Calum's?" She asked as we walked inside.

"I was upset mom, and I wanted to see my boyfriend." She looked at me a little funnily, I dont know why, she's always wanted me to date Calum.

"Well...I guess we both have new boyfriends Em." As we walked into the living room, I saw that same man sitting on our couch. "This is John, I've been with him for almost 6 months. Em, Im really really sorry that you had to see what you saw." She said. John got up, walking towards us. He looked like he was in his early 40s. My mom is 41 she had me when she was 24.

"Hi, I'm John. I know you probably the me right now, and I'm also sorry for what you saw, but hopefully I can make it up to you somehow."

"No thanks." I said with a bit of sass.

"Emerie!" My mom said.

"What? You can't make me like the people you date." I went to my room, Will following me.

"Sorry about her. You know teenagers." I heard her say before Will closed the door. I took off my jacket, setting it on my bed.

"You're wearing Calum's shirt." Will noticed. "And his pants."

"Oh, shit, I forgot. Oh and my bike! Damn it."

"So, you don't like this John guy?"

"Why would I?"

"You've gotta give him a chance Em. You don't even know him."

"Will, I'm not gonna 'give him a chance.' Get over it." He sighed.

"Okay, fine. I'll leave you alone." He walked out, I took out my phone and went onto Instagram. 486 new followers. Wow. I found the picture Calum had posted.

@calumhood: Happy 17th to the bestest best friend out there. Love you to death Em, have a good b-day! @emmywalker

I smiled to myself, feeling myself blush. The picture was of us about two or three years ago, walking out to the water. Will was the one taking the picture. Calum had made it black and white, it was pretty cute, Will is right, we do look like a couple in this picture.

Finally I get to say that we really are a couple.
