2. Chapter 2 : Getting Used To Being Alone

Helen's POV

 

My eyes fluttered open.

I looked around and squinted at the Sun's bright rays. Something poked my hand.

I brought it closer to my body and saw that it was the pick Calum gave me.

"Right," I told myself, "He's on tour."

I took a deep breath and pushed myself off my bed.

I went into my bathroom and washed my face with cold water, after that I brushed my teeth.

I slept in the same clothes as the day before, I didn't bother changing. 

As I opened the door, everything was quiet. 

I slowly made my way down the stairs.

Once I reached the bottom, I saw a small note on the counter.

Helen

I had to go to work today, I'll be back later. Sorry I can't be there for you. Love you.

Mom

I crumpled up the paper and tossed it in the trash.

Great, just perfect.

After pouring myself some cereal and milk into a bowl, I sat on the couch and watched Teen Wolf.

I occasionally turned my attention the stairs, expecting Luke to be coming down, but he never did.

6 months without Luke.

I inhaled and released the air through my lips.

"This is gonna be a long day," I said aloud. "Which means, I'm going to be talking to myself a lot."

I checked the time in London, 2:17 AM. They're probably not awake anymore.

School is tomorrow again which means, I have no one to talk to. 

I only really knew Calum, Luke, Ashton, and Michael. I only hung out with them and they were in my classes.

Alone again.

Perfect.

I turned the TV off and bounded up the stairs. 

Once in my room, I went to my drawer and pulled out black shorts and an old band muscle tee. 

I changed into that and slipped on my Nike running shoes. After putting my hair into a high ponytail and grabbing my headphones. I went back downstairs.

I did a couple of stretches before going outside and locking the door behind me.

I put my headphones in my ears and blasted my music 'til the point where I couldn't hear anything. 

Out of instincts, my legs start moving forward. As if they had a mind of their own.

I concentrated on my breathing and on the music.

The lyrics raced into my brain and I let them sink in. 

I felt the sun getting hotter, or that was just my body heat.

My feet hit the concrete sidewalk as I followed no trail in particular.

I ran and after 20 minutes, I stopped. Tall trees stood in front of me, leaves decorated the ground.

The sun gave it a gentle lighting. 

I knew that wild animals or even chainsaw murderers could lurk in the woods, but at the moment I didn't really care.

I ventured into the woods and began ducking under fallen tree branches.

I turned my music off but kept my earbuds in.

The woods smelled of wet dirt and pine.

I inhaled nature's cologne. 

Dry leaves crunched under my shoes as I walked.

I was sure I walked for a mile, when I came across a house.

My thoughts immediately went to 'A Cabin In The Woods.' 

The house was no bigger than a cottage home. It's white paint was now gray from all the dirt, mud, rain, and moss. 

The windows were broken and it was dark inside. There was no sign of light or sound on the inside.

My brain, that knows about horror movies, is screaming, 'Turn around and run you crazy fucker!' but I stayed put and just stared at the cabin.

"Helen."

I whipped my head around. No one was there. I turned in a full circle.

It sounded like Calum.

Suddenly my muscles tensed and  I stayed still.

The chills over came me and goosebumps rose on my skin.

I want to hear that voice again. Just one word.

"You're mind is playing tricks on you, Helen," I told myself.

I looked at the house once more before turning and sprinting out of woods and away from my hallucination of Calum's voice.

I didn't stop running until I reached my house. 

I unlocked the door and closed it behind me before collapsing on the hardwood floor. 

 

I was catching up on YouTube videos when my phone rang.

Calum's picture appeared on the screen and I immediately tapped the green button.

"Hello," I said a little breathless.

"Good morning beautiful," His voice rang in my ear and my heart nearly skipped a beat.

"Hi Calum," I said and giggled like a school girl.

I heard him laugh, "What?"

"Nothing, just, missed hearing your voice," I admit. 

"Miss hearing your voice too, babe. I just miss you in general."

"Me too. So how was your day?" I asked.

"Well it barely started, and you should know that you were my last thought last night and my first thought this morning."

My heart raced and I felt giddy on the inside. "I love the romantic side of you."

He laughed, "What did you do today?"

"Just watched Teen Wolf and went for a run," I replied.

"Where'd you run to?" He asked.

"Well I ran around the neighborhood, then stumbled upon the woods and decided to do some exploring."

"You went into the woods?" He asked, panic in his voice.

"Yea, why?"

"Baby, please don't ever go in there. I don't want you to get hurt or kidnapped even! I don't want to sound controlling, but please." He begged.

"I'm sorry Calum. There was nobody around and I left after a couple of minutes," I explained.

"Okay, but just promise me you won't go back in there."

"I promise Calum. Don't worry about me," I said.

"I know. I just care about you."

I smiled to myself.

 

Calum and I were on the phone for nearly 2 hours.

"Room service is here!" I heard Luke shout in the background.

"I'm gonna take you to breakfast with me," Calum said.

I checked the time, 9:40 PM.

"Actually, honey, I gotta go to sleep. School tomorrow, remember?" I asked.

"Oh right. Okay, good night beautiful. Sweet dreams."

"Good night Cal, have a great day and an even better show. Rock out, babe."

"I will. Love you."

"Love you too Cal."

I smiled and hung up.

I plugged my phone in to charge and pulled the covers up to my chest.

'Medicine' by The 1975 relaxed my body and I fell asleep with a smile on my face.

And it's all because of him.
