20. Chapter 20 : Merch

Helen's POV


There was a thud at the door. Not a knock, but a thud. I pushed myself off the couch and went to the window. The mailman was walking back down the path. I remembered that Calum was going to send me a package.

I rushed to the door and opened it. Two boxes sat in front of me. My hands snatched them and closed the door once again. I checked the white sticker that had the shipping information. Sure enough it read that Calum Hood sent it to me. 

I checked the bottom box and it said that Lucas sent it to me. I shook the boxes, but no sound came from it. I opened Calum's box first, it was sealed shut, so I grabbed a small blade and cut the tape down the middle.

I opened the cardboard box  and a small white envelope sat on the black material. It had my name on it. I picked it up and ran my hand over it before turning it. My fingers gently opened the envelope and pulled out the black card. I opened it and what seemed like a huge paragraph was written in black ink. I smiled at Calum's handwriting.



How are you doing darling? I hope you say you're great. I'm pretty okay myself. The tour's going great! We're going to take a small break and stay in a house in the U.K. The boys and I are going to be writing songs and recording for our EP. It's exciting!

Anyway the guys and I have been designing these shirts for a couple weeks and we received the samples. I liked it and decided to send you some of the merch. I really hope you like them and I also really HOPE they fit you. They're both small, but they still might be a little big on you. It can be like your boyfriend shirt!

Be sure to send me a picture of you wearing the merch ;) You'll look gorgeous

I love you so much sweetheart. You are beautiful, remember that. I'll be home soon, just wait. Don't think that I have given up on our relationship, cause I haven't and never will. I know it's difficult being away for so many months, but we'll make it through. 

Be careful, don't do something that could land you in a hospital or possibly dead, okay?

Love you so much baby. You're my entire world.

xx -Cal


I smiled at the letter. He's so adorable. I love him. I folded the letter again before putting it back into the envelope. The merch was covered by black material. I moved it to one side and saw the shirt. It was gray and had a black circle in the middle with the 5sos logo in it; 5 white tallys and SOS next to it. 

I held it up. Calum's right it probably will be a little big on me. I don't mind. The shirt was great. I loved it. I folded the shirt back up before looking at the second shirt. It was black and announced their tour. The back had all the tour dates and on the front it said '5 Seconds of Summer Tour' and the boys' silhouettes were beneath it.

I loved it!

I put the shirts back in the box and opened Luke's box. I cut the tape and when I opened it, an envelope was sitting on it. But instead of my name the envelope read; Shit Face. I laughed to myself and pulled out the card.


Our merch.

You better like it, we worked hard on it. But, I miss you Helen. Even though you get a little annoying, I still miss you. You're my sister after all. 

Remember all the dumb things we did? From racing shopping carts to getting in a school fight. Ah, good times. Don't forget them.

I hope to see you at one of our shows. It be good support.

Love ya Helen, See ya soon.


P.S. I can still kick your ass in FIFA. I demand a rematch!


I laughed at the thought of my very first FIFA game with Luke. I won by one point, I believe. It was fun. I grabbed the two boxes and bounded up the stairs. Once I reached my room, I plopped down on the bed.

I took my The 1975 shirt off and pulled on the gray shirt Calum sent me. Its hem passed my butt, but I was okay. After taking a couple pictures and deciding which ones were decent, I added a good filter. One was black and white, while the other one was in color. I sent them to Calum as he requested.

I grabbed my phone and called Luke. After the third ring, he answered.

"Hello?" He asked.

"I accept your rematch, Lucas," I said.

"You're on leprechaun."

"Shut the fuck up giraffe," I retorted.

"Make me, runt."

"You break stick."

"You fuck face."

Our insults went back and fourth like an intense tennis match. Eventually it ended and we both burst out laughing. I'd say I have a pretty healthy relationship with Luke. We always throw insults to one another, but we don't take each other seriously.

I suddenly heard a loud groan.

"Was that you?" I ask.

"No, that was Calum."

"Is he okay?"

"I don't know, let me go check," He said.

I waited patiently as I heard Luke shuffle his feet.

"Oh my fucking god," Calum said.

"Are you okay Calum?" Luke asked.

"What? Oh, yeah, I'm good," Calum stuttered.

"Okay," Luke said. "he says he's fine." Luke tells me.

"Mhmm," I reply. "How's he doing Luke?"

"Well he said he's fine."

"No, not that. I mean, is he happy?"

"Yea, he misses you like crazy, but he doesn't show his feelings that easily."

I nodded. "Oh, Calum told me that you're gonna be recording and writing songs. You excited?"

"Yea! I am, finally gonna be producing music and doing what I love!" He exclaimed.

"I'm so proud of you Luke!"

We continued to talk about random topics and about the tour until he had to go something else. We said our good byes and hung up. I called Calum. He answered immediately.

The first thing he said was, "I need you right now."

"Aw, I miss you too baby."

"No, not like that. I mean, I do miss you but I nee you." He was breathing heavily.

"Calum are you okay?" I asked.

"No! I have a really bad hard on right now."

I tried not to laugh, but it didn't work. I burst out laughing.

"This. Is. Not. Funny," he growled.

"I'm sorry babe, but it kinda is. What triggered your hormones?"

"The pictures you sent me!"

"Calum, I didn't even try to turn you on," I noted.

"Yet, you did."

"I'm sorry. I'm also very sorry I can't do anything about it," I said.

"Well, if you were what would you do?" He asked.

"I can think about 5 things," I replied.

"And what are those 5 things?"

"If I told you, you'd be screaming like a little bitch after the second one," I said.

He laughed, "I still need you."

"Babe, you're so cute."

"Just cute?" He asked.

"Fine Calum, you're so fucking hot, and if I could, I would have sex with you right now," I said.

He laughed, "But you do know that is not helping my boner."

"You're a horny child, you know that?"

"Horny for you," he said.

I burst out laughing.

"I love you," I said.

These are the conversations I love.
