Swap

May Fletcher, 18 year old high school graduate from North Dakota. Not a huge fan of boybands, ESPECIALLY 5 Seconds of Summer. Sure, she thinks they're cute, and that they have good music. But it's just something about them that she completely despises. Maybe it's the fact that they are famous? Whatever it is, she just does not like them.
But her little sister, Evelyn Fletcher, 12 years old, is totally IN LOVE with them.
When Evelyn gets two tickets to a meet and greet for 5 Seconds of Summer, it is May's job to take her.
Somehow they get special entry, and when Calum Hood takes one look at May, he falls in love. He tries flirting with her, but she wasn't having it. Playing hard to get, aren't we May?
But things take a turn for the best (for Calum) when he 'accidentally' switches phones with May. This meaning that they will have to meet again, and he will have another chance to win her heart.
Will she fall for Calum as hard as he fell for her? Find out in 'Swap.'

6. Chapter 6: Our Little Secret

This storm needs to end now!

The longer I sat on the hotel bed with all of the power out, the louder the thunder seemed to get. I covered my ears and squeezed my eyes shut. "Why? Of all days,  why is there a storm today? Right now!? I seriously can't do this!"

Suddenly, I felt was Calum's hands grabbing mine, pulling them away from my ears. I opened my eyes and looked at him, the dim light from the lightening outside illuminated his face just enough so that I could see it.

"Look, May..." He started, causing me to raise my eyebrows. "I know at this point you're kind of skeptical around me, and I get that.  But I also see that this storm is making you weak, and it kills me to see you suffer like this. I have an idea that might help, though. Can you trust me on this?" He asked. 

I sighed. "Yes." I murmured out. "Yes?" He asked, clarifying my answer. I nodded my head, swallowing my spit. "Yes, Calum. At this point, I feel like anything will help." 

The next thing I knew, Calum had pulled the blankets back. He picked me up and set me at the head of the bed, covering me up, he then climbed in next to me. He lifted his arm up and placed it across my stomach, causing me to tense up. "It's okay, May." He whispered. "I'm not going to hurt you, please trust me." 

I let myself relax, putting my trust in Calum, which was rare for me to do. He pulled me as close as he could to his chest. Each time he exhaled, I could fell the hairs on my head move, that's how close we were. He gradually started to rub my back in attempt to calm me down. 

The thunder rumbled, the loudest it had the entire storm. I cringed, burying my head into his chest. At this point, I really didn't care what I thought about Calum, whether I liked him or not, all I really wanted was some protection. 

The rain pelted the windows even harder than before, causing me to let out a little whimper. "Shhhh." He whispered into my ear. "It's going to be okay."

Without another word, Calum began to sing softly. 

"Life's a tangled web. Of cell phone calls and hashtag I don't knows." 

I recognized this song. It was one of his band's originals. He continued to sing, and let me just say, he voice was mesmerizing. As he continued, my eyelids progressively got heavier. 

"I like the summer rain, I like the sounds you make. We put the world away, we get so disconnected." His voice started to get quieter, as the storm outside became more of a distant thing to me. 

The last thing I felt before I fell into a deep sleep was Calum's lips pressing lightly against mine.

--------------------------

The next morning

I woke up and noticed three things. 

The main part of the storm was over, it was now just drizzling outside. The power was still out. And I was still in Calum's arms.

I sighed, mentally thanking the sleeping Calum for helping me the night before. That's when I remembered what he did.

I didn't know whether to feel upset...or maybe even satisfied. I untangled myself from Calum, sitting up, causing him to wake up.

"Hey, are you okay?" He asked, rubbing his eyes. "You...you kissed me last night." I said, looking away from him. "Huh?" He questioned, still trying to fully wake up. "You kissed me last night!"I said, slightly louder.

"Oh..umm..." Before he could even say anything, I cut in. "Why? Why did you kiss me?" I asked.

"May, let me try to say this as simply as possible. It killed me to see you so upset from the storm. The fact that I was able to get you to calm down and fall asleep made me feel a sense of accomplishment. Once you were sleeping, I just looked at your lips, and I couldn't help myself, so...I kissed you."

"That's the thing Calum, I wasn't sleeping yet." I said, trying to figure out my feelings. "I am so sorry, May." He apologized.

"No, Calum, don't say sorry. I...I just don't know what to think." I pulled my knees to my chest. "What do you mean?" He asked, trying to figure out what I was talking about. "Once you kissed me, and I will admit this, my heart immediately warmed up, and my stomach jumped. What I'm saying here is...well we just met yesterday, and I have always told myself to never get too close to someone that I just met. But I trust you Calum..." I stopped, to see what he had to say. "What are you trying to tell me, May?"

"What I'm trying to say is, and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think I'm falling for you too." I whispered out. Calum smiled. "You're serious?" He asked. I nodded. "But please do not tell the boys that I said this. And especially  don't tell Evelyn. Before anything, I want to figure some things out in my personal life." I looked for a sign of agreement in Calum's eyes, and I automatically found it.

"I wont tell anyone." He said, grabbing my hand. "It'll be our little secret."

 

 

A/N: wowwow I really liked this chapter actually, even though it's pretty short. So, what do you think? Will May and Cal Pal will figure things out before the boys leave for their next stop, or nah? I actually don't  know the answer because I haven't even thought that far ahead in the book yet XD I'll be updating again soon! Love you guyyys! -Tay xx
