Calum's POV


Michael groaned, "I could really go for a milkshake from In-N-Out right now."

"Yea, but they're only in California, remember?" I said.

"Helen pretty much ruined us after she let us eat their burgers once." Ashton added.

We laughed. I stood up. 

"Where you going?" Luke asked.

"Just gonna go get a drink," I replied as I left the room and stepped out onto the balcony of the hotel room. I pulled my phone out and dialed Helen's number. I rested my elbow on the railing as I leaned against it. She picked up after the third ring. 

"Hey Cal," I heard  her say. The water was running on the other end of the line and there was an echo when she spoke. 

"Are you in the bathroom?" I asked.

"Yea, why?" She replied over the running water. 

I laughed, "Oh my gosh, you're so adorable."

"Calum....I'm literally just taking a shower. What's so adorable about that?" She stated.

"Can't I call my girlfriend adorable?" I asked.

"Well, yea but-"

"But what?"

"Never mind."

"No tell me," I insisted.

"I lost my train of thought," She said.

"You're such a hassle." 

"Yet you're keeping our long-distance relationship going on strong."

"It'll be worth it," I replied.


"What happened?" I asked.

"I got soap in my eye," She complained. "My eye burns. Fuck."

"Are you okay?" I asked.

"Yea, I'm just taking the soap off as we speak," She said.

Minutes later she shut off the water.

"So you were saying?' She said.

"I wasn't saying anything," I stated.

"Oh, okay. Well how was your day?" She asked.

"My day was okay, until I got to hear your voice, now it got a whole lot better."

"I'm blushing!" She exclaimed.

I smiled, "And that is why you're adorable."

She laughed, "And that is why I love you."

Love. What a strange word. It can mean so much, yet so little at the same time. It can bring someone joy, but also bring sadness. Love is a strong word. And if said with no meaning at all, it can hurt people. It can cause them immense pain to their heart. Why? Because they put their love and their happiness in that person's hand, only for them to tear their heart apart and toss it back to them as if it were a disease. 

I guess that's the reason why I'm scared of commitment. I'm scared of opening my heart and spilling my feelings out and to later on find out that they don't feel the same way. No, that's too much to bear. I built walls up and around myself. Walls that I've slowly taken down as my relationship with Helen progressed. And I've gotten to a point where I'm scared for my life because I'm so in love with her that she can just leave me there on the sidewalk and I'd be broken temporarily. Maybe even permanently.  It's crazy to think that one person, one single person has such a strong grip on you that you know you can't escape even if you tried. But then again I haven't tried to escape from Helen's grip. I'm wrapped around her finger. She's given me her all and I've given her my all as well. We carry each other's hearts and have faith in each other. Faith I hope we never lose. 

"I love you too," I said sure of my self. 

I've told her that I loved her, but I haven't told her I am in love with her. They are very different but very similar. I've come to a conclusion that loving someone is like wanting a person but being in love is needing that person. I don't want Helen. I need her in my life. It's like taking drugs. Once you've had one hit, you just need more of it. And you don't take it cause you want to, on the contrary you want to stop taking those drugs but you can't cause you need it in your life. It keeps you whole. It gives you a sense of relief when you're in that person's presence because you know that they give you an indescribable feeling that you love so much. 

I don't want to dive into marriage and settle into a family life. I want to take things slow. I want to treasure the good times, I want to remember every little thing we've done. Every mistake, every word, everything. We got the time in the world, so I'm gonna take my own damn good time to show her that I love her and show her that I am in absolute love with her. I'd even take a bullet for her, that's how much I am in love with her. I care more about her, than I do for myself. Sure it's probably not healthy, but as long as she's happy and healthy, then so am I. 

Damn. I'm in love with her.
