21. Chapter 21 : Vodka & Tequila

Calum's POV


After my conversation with Helen, my hard wasn't as bad and I wasn't as horny. But I still wish she was with me.

The guys and I want to go to the bar and just relax for a while. We haven't been able to do that in a while. I was excited and I also knew I could control myself when I was drunk. I mean, I didn't hit on any girl when I went to that club a couple weeks ago.

Self-control right?

I think I''ll be fine and not cheat on Helen. 

We were getting ready to leave for the night. I slipped my arms through the sleeves of my flannel before brushing my teeth and exiting my room.

"You ready?" Michael asked.

"Yea," I replied. "Hey Mike, are you gonna get drunk?"

"'m planning on it, yea. Why?"

"I need someone to prevent me from doing something I'll regret. I could control myself and refrain from doing-you know, but I still need someone to stop me. Since I am planning on getting insanely drunk." I said.

"Tell Luke, maybe he'll do it," Michael suggested.

I nodded.

Once we all were downstairs, we got into the car and drove towards the bar. It was a short steady drive, passing through the houses and into the city. I had my earbuds in and listened to music to drown out the angry drivers honking and occasional sirens wailing.

We arrived and parked before getting out. There wasn't a line, thank god! The boys and I scurried inside. The club's lights were dimmed and music exploded from the speakers. People were sitting on chairs or moving around on the dance floor. 

I made my way to the bar, ordered my drink, then went to stand in a corner. The guys joined me, we held our glass cups that carried our alcoholic drink. I wasn't planning on drinking beer cause it had almost no amount of alcohol. And I wanted to get drunk fast.

I guess being drunk allows me to feel nothing, I'll think that everything is a good idea. And I'll eventually end up doing that 'good idea.' 

I internally shook my head at myself.

Luke nudged my arm. I looked over at him.

"What's up with you? You're so quiet," He said.

I shook my head, "Nothing."

"Yea, Luke's right. You're usually the one that is snatching the first girl you see and pulling her on the dance floor," Michael said.

"Hey, I am taken by the most beautiful girl in the world," I defended.

"Oh right. Helen. I forgot, you know since you hardly talk to her," Michael said.

"I talk to her," I said.

"When's the last time you did?" Michael asked,

"Before we came here," I replied angrily.

"Hey, cut if off you two. We came here to have a good time," Ash interjected.

With that, my dispute with Michael ended.

After guzzling down my fifth drink, Luke turned to me.

"Don't you think you've had enough?" He asked.

"I'm fine! I could have a couple more drinks," I slurred.

Luke scowled but didn't stop me as I ordered my sixth drink. 

The rest of the night was one big blur. By 10 o'clock I was drunk. I kept my eyes off every girl that seemed to be wanting my attention. 

I stumbled to an isolated corner before pulling my phone out. I called the only person that has been on my mind since the beginning of the day.



Helen's POV


"OH MY FUCK!" I exclaimed and clutched Logan's hand.

"He is a full-on wolf!" Logan said.

We were in the middle of watching the season finale to Teen Wolf and we were both flipping out. Season 5 would be premiering soon and I had gotten Logan hooked on the show. 

We were squeezing each other's hands and I was slamming my fist on the couch. It was an intense episode. 


"My babe looks so hot," He replied.

We continued to watch. Our eyes were glued to the screen. 

10 minutes later, the episode ended. We stared blankly at the screen.


"Even," Logan finished.

We nodded.

"When is the 5 season premiering?" Logan asked.

"June 29," I replied.

"So close!"

"I know! We better watch it," I exclaimed.

"We will!"

We continued to make our plans. Logan was my Adin, but in Australia. Except they both have different personalities. Logan and I talked for another hour and scrolled through our social medias. Occasionally showing a picture which we think is funny, to one another. 

"Alright I gotta get home," Logan stood up.

"Okay," I got up as well and followed him to the door. He unlocked it and stepped outside. He pulled his hoodie over his head.

"I'll see you tomorrow Helen," He said.

"Yea, definitely," I replied.

I pulled him into a hug, but we separated quickly.

It was a cool and chilly night.

"Bye," He said.

"Bye Logan."

I closed the door and locked it. 

My phone rang. I picked it up and Calum's contact picture appeared on my screen.

"Hello," I said.

"Hey baby," He slurred.

"Hi," I said slowly.

I heard the bass of the music on the other end of the line. I could barely hear him.

"Calum, are you in a club?" I asked.

"No, I'm at the house," He replied.

"Calum I honestly don't know why you're lying, I could hear the music. I'm just asking, it's not like I'm gonna get mad."

He suddenly started giggling.

"What's so funny?" I asked.

He giggled even more.

I huffed, "Cal, maybe....maybe you should go home."

"Why?" He asked.

"You're drunk," I replied.

"No, I'm not," He insisted.

"Yes Calum, you are."

"Helen, do you love me?"

"Yes Calum I love you very much," I replied.


I waited.

"Hey, when are you going to send those nudes you promised?" he asked.

"Cal, I never promised to send you nudes," I replied.

"Yea you did!" He exclaimed.

"Prove it," I said and started to go up the stairs.

"Gimme a minutes," He replied.

I waited.

"I'll send you a screenshot of the texts tomorrow," he finally said.

"Uh huh."

"Baby, why don't you ever call me 'Daddy'?" He asked.

"Calum I told you before, I hate daddy kinks," I replied.

"You told me that?"

"Yes, I told you the second week into our relationship," I said.

"You did?" He asked sounding surprised.

"Just wait until the morning and you'll remember."


He was clearly very drunk.

"Babe, are you sure you're okay?" I asked. 

"Yea sweetheart, I'm grand."

I frowned. I'm 99.9% sure he is not going remember this conversation in the morning. 

"Where's Luke?" I asked.

"I dunno, he must be around here somewhere," Calum said. "Oh, he's right here."

"Can I talk to him, please?" I asked.

"Why? You don't wanna talk to me?" he asked.

"No, I do Cal, but I just want to tell Luke something real quick," I replied.

"Fine," he mumbled.

I waited until I heard Luke's voice.

"Yea?" he asked.

"How drunk is he?" I asked.

"What do you mean?"

"I mean is he streaking past the neighbors drunk, vomiting in the toilet drunk, or just giggly drunk?" I asked.

"I'd say, weird drunk," Luke replied.

"Well make sure he's careful, okay?"

"Yea, yea, I hear you."

"Are you all drunk?" I asked.

"Nah, I only took a couple of drinks. I'd say I'm pretty sober."

"Uh huh," I said.

"I am!" He exclaimed.

"Okay, I believe you. Oh, and if Calum says anything about sending him nudes, he lying."


I laughed.

"Pass the phone to Calum," I said.


I immediately heard Calum.

"I'm back," he said.

I giggled. We were on the phone for another hour, then Calum and I said our good byes.

"Good night darling, sweet dreams. I love you."

I smiled, "Night honey, I love you too."

We hung up.

My heart ached for him. For him to come home.

I looked out the window. The stars sprinkled the black sky. We're so close, but so far away.

"Can you hear me?" I whispered.
