31. -31- In Your Hesitation...


Calum and I sit in the living room of his house as my little brother learns to play guitar in the garage with Luke.

"Hey,so,I wanna clear things up,Kayla." Calum says,turning to me.

"What do you mean?" I ask,giving him a worried look.

"It's not-okay,maybe you may think it's bad,but it's not what you're thinking." He tries to explain but loses me completely.


"Listen. I have seriously no idea how Crawford," I internally groan at her name and Calum pauses,thinking of what to say.

"She-I had no intention of hurting you or Michael or anyone for that matter. Emotionally or physically. And I just-I don't know how she even entered our lives. She was just there in the printer room. And then she started following me around and stuff and-"

"Calum,I get it."

"You do?"


He sighs in relief. "Good."

"But I wanna know just one more thing."


"Why didn't you invite me to the dance? Brent told me you invited Samantha."

He pauses and looks me in the eyes. "I-I....."

I stand up and sigh.

"Wait,I didn't get to answer you."

"In your hesitation,I found my answer."


"Look,I'll be back when Lucas comes to pick up Eric. I need time to myself. I'll be with my Dad at my old place." I tell Calum and leave the house.

I walk to my old home that my dad is working on fixing up. I walk inside and head to my old room,ignoring Aerianna's questions. I close the door and lock it. I throw myself onto the bed and sigh.

'Of course. Of. Fucking. Course. He fucking likes that girl.'


First practice of the season down. Me and Lily landed the same team again. I notice Calum and Michael talking to each other. I wave,smiling. Michael waves back,and Calum glances at me. He smiles a little.

We make our way over to them.

"Hey." Lily says.

"Hey." Michael responds.

"Kayla,can I talk to you?" Calum asks. Lily gives me a 'Don't leave me with him' look and I shrug,following Calum.

"What's up?" I ask.

"I should be asking you that,honestly. You haven't said more than,what,15 words to me since that conversation. I didn't actually invite Crawford. She just came and dragged me away. Ashton had told me he was walking with you and Lily. I knew you were coming."

"Why'd you leave and get caught with her at the dance then?"

"She followed me."

"Okay." I say.

He hugs me all the sudden. "I love you,goddammit." He whispers in my ear.

"I know." I reply,casually,laughing.


Dad opens the front door,obviously frustrated with something. I look over at him.

"Where's Chels?"

"She didn't want to leave."

"Shouldn't you be with her though?" He hangs his jacket in the coat closet and takes off his shoes.

"Lucas said he'll go there after his work shift ends."


Aerianna comes running down the stairs.

"Where's Chelsea?"

Dad sighs.

"Hospital. Lucas is heading over there."

"Oh." Aerianna heads back upstairs.

"Hey,Dad? Can you take me shopping tomorrow?" Eric pipes up from across the couch.


"I dunno. Just wanna spice up my clothes,I guess."

I look back at my phone and text Calum. Dad's cell phone rings.

"Yeah?" He asks into the phone,his eyes widening as the person on the other end says something.

"No. You're joking," Dad jumps up. "Lucas,are-we'll be there in a few minutes," Dad hangs up.

"Get in the car." He tells me and Eric. 


"Eric just do it." I say.

"Aerianna!" Dad yells as we leave the house.
