1. Chapter 1 : Robbers

Calum's POV


Through the plane's window I saw her. She was on the ground, crying.

My heart broke. She looked so sad. 

When I said good bye to her, I could barely hold it all inside.

Now I'm leaving her and I couldn't help but let a few tears fall from my eyes.

Luke roughly patted my shoulder.

"She'll be okay, Calum," He said.

I really wanted to believe him, but deep down, I knew that we'd both, never be okay at all.

I nodded and quickly wiped my eyes.

"Don't be ashamed," Luke comforted..

I felt the plane slowly moving on the runway.

It started gaining speed and seconds later, the wheels were completely off the runway.

I looked out the window until Sydney was miles away.

So was Helen.


Helen's POV


I held the pick in my hand. I didn't look at it because I'd probably cry harder than I already am.

Tears were streaming down my face and I was an emotional wreck.

The plane left 5 minutes ago and I was still on the ground.

I felt my Mom's arms around me as I cried.

"It's going to be okay, sweetheart," She whispered and stroked my hair.

She helped me off the ground.

"Don't cry Helen. Calum loved you very much and he'll do anything in his power to keep your relationship strong," Joy comforted.

I nodded and wiped my tears.

After saying good bye to the others, I followed my Mom to the car.

I got in and she silently started the engine and drove out of the airport parking lot.

The ride was funeral-quiet. The only sound came from the occasional cars passing us on the highway.

I looked up to the sky. It was brilliant blue and the sun was shining.

I felt like it was mocking me. How can it be a beautiful day with amazing weather, and me slowly dying on the inside.

When we got home I went up the stairs and into my room.

I threw myself onto my bed and took several deep breaths.

Finally after a while, I got up and went towards my speakers.

I plugged my iPod in and put it on shuffle.

The first song was Robbers by The 1975.

I lay in my bed and listened to intro.

And finally Matty began to sing.

She had a face straight out a magazine.

God only knows why you'll never leave her.

Her balanclava is starting to chafe

And when she gets his gun he's begging 'Babe stay, stay, stay, stay, stay'

I cried at that part of the song. They do say that music says the words we're too afraid to speak. And I was afraid too to tell Calum to stay.

I lifted the guitar pick and looked at it.

It was about and inch and a half. It was white and had a black 'C' on one side and 5 tally marks on the other.

I ran my finger over it.

Now if you never shoot you'll never know

And if you never eat you'll never grow.

You're got a pretty kind of dirty face

And when she's leaving your home, he's begging you 'stay, stay, stay, stay, stay.'

I'll give you one more time

We'll give you one more fight

Said one more line

Be a riot cause I know you.

Well now that you've got your gun

It's much harder now the police have come.

Now I'll shoot him if it's what you ask,

But if you just take off your mask,

You'll find out everything's gone wrong.

Now everybdy's dead

And they're driving past my old school.

He's got his gun, he's got his suit on

She says, 'Babe you look so cool, you look so cool.'

That one line of lyrics rang in my ears.

"Babe, you look so cool," I whispered to the empty room.

But Calum wasn't here to reply back to me.

It seemed like my music knew I was sad and played all my slow songs.

'Fallingforyou' by The 1975

'Young and Beautiful' by Lana Del Rey and so on.

If I would've told Calum to stay, would he have done it?

I'm dreading the future of our relationship.

We didn't see this coming, but even if we did, it wouldn't have changed anything.

I closed my eyes and concentrated on the lyrics to Blink-182's 'I Miss you.' It didn't take long for me to cry my heart out.

I didn't know it'd affect me this much, but this tells me how strongly I love Calum.

My phone suddenly rang.

The screen read 'Adin.'

I answered it.

"Adin," I said through a sob.

"What is it? Why are you crying?" He asked.

"He's gone. Calum's gone," I replied as tears fell from my eyes.

"Oh it was today? Aww honey, I'm sorry. I wish I could comfort you in someway, but I'm thousands of miles away unfortunately."

"I just need you right now. I know Calum wouldn't want me crying, but it hurts, you know?" I asked and sniffled.

"Yea, I understand. Look everything is gonna be okay, don't cry over him now. He's still with you right?"


"Then why so much tears? What's important is that you two are still together. You better strive to keep your relationship strong, as should he."

I nodded even though Adin couldn't see.

"Yea," I finally said.

"Okay. Now, let's talk about something else. Want me to catch you up on everything that's happened?" Adin asked.

"Sure," I replied and laughed a little.

Adin and I ended up having a two hour conversation on all the gossip and drama that's happened at my old school. It was pretty juicy.

"And she's pregnant!" Adin said referring to Mia Kennedy.

"No!" I said slightly shocked.

"Yea! She really want it to be a boy, but David wants it to be a girl," Adin explained.

"Wait, David is her Baby's Daddy?" I asked.

"Yea, why?"

"David was punching the shit out of Calum when we went over there!" I exclaimed, remembering the fight between Luke, Calum, Ashton and Michael with Brad and his friends.


"Yes! I didn't know they were dating."

"They've been dating for 5 months, but I gotta go. I'm going to watch a movie."

"What movie?" I asked.

"Maybe a scary one or comedy," He replied.

"Alright, have fun."

"Thanks. Bye now."

"See ya."

I hung up.

It was now dark outside. The only light came from the vibrant moon that illuminated the night sky.

I held the guitar pick with my index finger and thumb. I studied it for the second time.

The slow music was relaxing my brain and my eyelids started to get heavy.

I took a deep breath and let the drowsiness take me over and hopefully, just hopefully take my pain away.
