18. Chapter 18 : Jail Cell

Helen's POV


"Smile," The cop said.

I held the black square that held my name and stood in front of the camera. 

"Can I just flip the camera off?" I asked.

"No," The cop replied.

I huffed and smiled at the camera and threw up the Rock n' Roll sign. He snapped the picture. Sad, I really wished my mugshot would be me flipping the camera off. Oh well. 

"Turn to one side," He commanded.

I did and he snapped another picture. The cop took the square from me and escorted me to my jail cell. We turned various corners, unlocked various doors, and walked by various cells. 

Finally the cop unlocked the cell and opened it, he motioned for me to go inside. I did and he slammed the door shut. I nearly jumped. The cell was almost as big as my Dad's walk-in closet in California. 

It was an over night cell and it didn't have a bed. I sat on the cold bench and leaned against the cool concrete wall. I brought my knee up to my chest. 

I was still wearing Calum's shirt. My arms slipped around my knees and I buried my head in my arms. If I concentrated hard enough, I could almost smell Calum's cologne on the shirt. But after wearing it for a couple times, the smell was fading. 

really hope my Dad doesn't find out about this, he'd probably convince my Mom to have her send me back to California and finish my Senior year there. If my relationship with Calum fails, I'll go back to California, but until then, I'm sticking to Australia. 

I am excited to go to California to visit. My Dad said it'd be a good idea for me to spend some time there. I agreed. But I'll be coming back for when school starts. Then I'd go back to California because 5sos would be doing their last show of the tour in California. I also promised Cal and Luke I'd be there. 

I remembered that the boys planned on releasing an EP. I'm proud of them, they're going to produce great music. 

I was too lost in my thoughts that when the cop spoke up, I jumped.

"You got a visitor, Hemmings," he said.

I looked up. Venus was approaching my cell.

"Helen!" She exclaimed.

"Oh my god, Venus!" I rushed to her and attempted to hug her through the bars, but it didn't work.

"No hugging," The cop said.

"Right, sorry," Venus apologized. "What happened?"

"Logan and I were tagging some walls and we got caught," I explained.

"How are you getting out?" She asked.

"How much bail money do they want?" I asked.

"2,500," She replied.

I shut my eyes, my Mom doesn't have that money. I'm going to have to reach out to my Dad.

"Fuck," I muttered.

"Your Dad is rich right? Just have him get  the money," Venus said.

I rested my head against the bars, "I guess I'm gonna have to. Okay, tell my Mom, if she doesn't already know, that I am in jail and I need her to call my Dad and ask him for the bail money. He'll insert the money in her account." I said.

She nodded.

"What about Logan, does he have money?" I asked.

"His parents are already putting the money together," She replied.

I nodded, "Okay tell that to my Mom, please."

"Will do, just hang tight Helen."

"Time's up," The cop said and he started to escort Venus out of the cell room. 

Once they left, I was alone once again. I huffed.


I woke up.

I slept overnight in a cell. That's a first. My muscles ached from sleeping on the hard bench. I stood up and stretched. 

A small tennis ball was on the floor in front of me. I picked it up and began to bounce it. What else is there to do anyway? I have no choice really. 

It was a slow morning. Very slow. There is nothing to do and I was bored out of my mind. 

"Alright Hemmings, you got bailed out," The cop said.

Finally! I dropped the ball and rushed to the door. He opened the door and I exited. The cop escorted me to get my things.

He left and I went up to the desk.

"Hemmings?" The girl asked.

I nodded. 

She went over and grabbed a bag with all my stuff. She came back and handed it to me. My phone and everything I had with me was in the bag. 

I thanked the lady and went outside.


I shut my eyes.


"Yes?" I asked.

"Thank goodness you're okay!" She exclaimed.

"Yea, I'm fine."

"Barely got bailed out too?" 

I turned around. Logan was coming out of the building. I nodded.

"You too?" I asked.

"Yea," he replied.

"Oh Logan, we're so happy you're okay!" It was the Rodgers, Logan's parents. They hugged Logan.

"Yea, I'm okay Mom," Logan muffled.

"Let's go home," Mom said.

"I'll see you later, Logan," I said.

"Yea sure," he replied.

I followed my Mom to her car and got in. She started lecturing me on what's right and wrong and to never tag walls, ect. I nodded my head and mumbled occasional, 'Okays' and 'I knows.' When we arrived, I got out of the car and went inside, I rushed up he stairs and closed the door behind me.

I checked my phone and saw I got various texts from the boys. 

Calum: Hello darling :)

Calum: Hello?

Calum: Is everything okay?

Calum: Please call

Calum: Oh god, Helen? Are you okay?

Hemmo: Where are you?

Hemmo: Calum's been calling and texting you, answer.

Hemmo: Dammit Helen, are you okay?

Mikey: Hey Helen, if you are reading this, call Calum. He's worried sick.

Ash: Helen, are you okay? We're all worried and don't know if you're okay. Just call, yea?

I put them in a group message.

Me: Can you skype?

Calum: Yea

Mikey: Is everything okay?

Hemmo: What happened?

Ash: Let's just sype

Me: I'd be easier to explain

I logged into my skype account and made a call with Calum.

He answers immediately. His hair was peppered with blonde streaks. He was smiling widely and looked handsome.

"Calum!" I exclaimed. "Your hair!"

He smiled, "you like it?"

"I love it!" I said.

"You look beautiful, sweetheart," He said.

I blushed, "Thank you Cal."


Calum was shoved off the couch he was sitting on and Luke appeared on the screen. Calum groaned. 

"Luke, why did you push Calum off the couch?" I asked.

He looked over and suddenly realized what he did, "Oh, sorry Cal." He looked back at the camera.

"What happened?" He asked.

"Hi Helen!" I heard Michael and Ash say. They sat on the couch next to Luke and soon, Calum got off the ground and joined them.

"Hey Mikey, Hey Ash," I waved at the screen.

"So what happened?" Luke asked.

"I uh-I was sorta arrested," I said and ran my fingers through my hair.

"You what?" They all asked in unison.

"I was arrested and spent the night in a cell," I repeated.

"Helen, I told you not to do anything stupid!" Luke scolded.

"I know! But I didn't think I'd get caught! There were no cops around," I stated.

"So that's why you didn't reply to the texts?" Calum asked.

I nodded.

I talked with the boys about the tour and about other stuff. It was great to smile for more than 5 minutes. I was laughing constantly and smiling widely. It was a great conversation. 

I said good bye to the guys and told them I missed them. Soon, only Calum was left. He was looking at me.

"What?" I asked.

"Just missed seeing your beautiful face."

I smiled, "I miss seeing your beautiful face too, my Greek God."

"Greek God?" He asked and raised a brow.

I only smiled.

"Oh, I sent you a package, it should be arriving tomorrow or Friday."

It was Wednesday.

"What is it?" I asked.

"Just a a little something," he said and gave me that cheeky smile.

"Okay, I'll be waiting for it."

"I think Luke also sent you something, but his is different from my gift. Mine is better," he claims.

I laughed, "I love you Cal."

"Love you too, darling."

We ended the call after a couple of minutes. We'll make it through, I said to myself, we'll make it through.
