In love with my best friend

Calum and Ashlee have been best friends since they were in their mummy's womb. Will three words ruin their friendship? or will they date?


9. 9.

Ashlee’s p.o.v

The next morning I was too tired to go to school. I have so many emotions are happening between Damian and Calum. Like do I still love Damian or are my feelings for Calum still strong?

I got off my bed and started to get ready.

When I finished I went downstairs and I saw my mum and dad there sitting on the table silently.

“Um is everything okay?” I asked.

“Huh? Oh yeah everything is great.” Mum replied.

I saw my dad stare at me and his eyes went to my cheek and that's when I started to get scared.

“What happened to your cheek there?” My dad asked circling his right cheek.

“I uh slipped and fell on my face.”


“We um have some news to tell you.” Mum said.

“Your brother Abraham got in a car crash and he um is in the hospital in a very dangerous stage and he might uh pass away.”

I didn't know what to say I just ran out the door and ran to who knows where. I arrived at an abandoned alley and broke out in tears there. I can't believe my only brother is in the hospital. Why did he have to go through this? Why couldn't have it been me instead of him?

I felt two arms in my shoulders.

“Leave me alone.” I said.

“Are you sure you want me to leave you alone?” The person said. I turned around and saw Calum there.

“CALUM!” I yelled. I jumped into his arms and hugged him tightly.

“I'm sorry for everything. I wish….I had never…..said that about...” I sobbed.

“Shh, it's okay don't worry about that.”

“This new me got Abraham in the hospital.”

“It's not you who made him crash.”

“Yes it is, he got mad and stormed out of my room and drove.”

“Wait,” I said realizing something.


“How did you find me?”

“I tracked your phone.” Calum answered.

“Oh okay.” I replied and we started to walk home.

When we arrived home my mum and dad were outside the door pacing.

“Ashlee!” They both yelled and ran towards me to hug me.

“We were worried sick, why did you run off like that?” My dad asked.

“I just couldn't handle the fact that Abraham is in the hospital because of me.”

“Oh sweetie it's not your fault that he's in the hospital.” Mum said.

“Yeah it was that dumbass who crashed into him.” Dad added.

“Can we go see him?” I asked.

“Of course we can. Calum would you like to come with us?” Mum asked.

“Oh no sorry I can't. I wish I can but….”

“Calum please come I need you.” I told him.

“Okay I’ll come.” He said.


We all got in the car and we drove off to the hospital where my brother was at. Whilst my dad was parking the car my mum, Calum and I went to the front desk to find out where Abraham was staying at. 

“What room is Abraham Mark Williams in?” I kindly asked the lady behind the desk. She scrolled down the list of the patients and when she found it she looked toward us.

“He is down the hall to the left.” She replied.

“Thank you.”

We walked toward his room and when I saw Abraham I felt a tear fall from my face. He has many scratches in his face and body. He also had a lot of wires connected to him.

I felt two arms go on my shoulder. I turned to the side and saw Calum looking at me and smiled.

I walked over to Abraham and held his hand. It was so cold. I sat beside the bed and I sobbed next to him. I heard my mum and dad come in the room. I ran over to them and gave them a massive hug and sobbed into them.

“It's gonna be okay. He will be fine.” My mum said stroking my hair.

“No he's not!” I yelled pulling myself back from my parents.

“Because of me, Abraham could die! And it's all my fucking fault!” I screamed and ran out of the room.

Calum's p.o.v

After Ashlee had the meltdown I immediately ran after her. I am not leaving her alone right now. Cause she can do something stupid and se can get hurt and I don't want my best friend in the hospital.

“Ashlee!” I screamed but she just kept running.

“Ashlee!” I yelled once again.

“Leave me alone Calum!” She yelled back at me.

She finally stopped running and I caught up to her.

“What do you want?” She sobbed.

“I just wanted to make sure you're okay.” I softly replied.

“Do you think I look okay?” She looked up and her eyes were so red and full with tears.

“C’mon I know what will make you feel better.” I held out my hand for her and she stared at it for a while before taking it.

I lead her to the one place we used to go when one of us was feeling sad or down.

He gasped when she saw it, “I remember this place.”

“Yup we used to come here every time one of us felt sad.”

We went inside and she first ordered her ice cream.

“I will have a mint chocolate chip with sprinkles please.” She said.

The lady nodded and went to get her ice cream.

“I will have the same please.”

We would always take turns choosing an ice cream and that flavour would be for the both of us. Since it was Ashlee's bad day I told her to choose.

We sat down in a booth with our ice creams and we ate it silently for a couple seconds.

“I haven't been in place in ages.” Ashlee whispered.

“I know, I guess we’ve been busy with our high school life.”

“I broke up with Damian again.” Ashlee said.


“Yeah and he slapped me.”

“WHAT THE FU-” I tried to say but Ashlee shushed me.

“Why would he do that? I thought you said he was the best boyfriend in the whole world?”

“Yeah I thought the same.”

“Samantha cheated on me.” I also said.

“I'm sorry.” She apologised. 

“It's okay it's not your fault.”

“Who was it with? Who did she…?”

“A boy named Zack.”

“Oh she doesn't deserve you then. You are an amazing boy Calum I don't know why anyone would give you up for someone else.” She told me.

“You are the same Ashlee. People like Damian are stupid for giving you up and slapping you. I love you Ashlee.”

“I love you too Calum.”

We both leaned in and we kissed. I've waited to kiss her for a long time without any of us being in a relationship. The first time I've felt feelings for Ashlee is in first grade. I've noticed what an amazing girl Ashlee really is and I knew she was the one I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.

We walked out of ice cream store with our hand locked with each other.

We went back to the hospital and all the guys were there and they looked at us shocked.

“Are you guys…?” Michael started but didn't finish.

We looked at each other and Calum opened his mouth but didn’t get to talk.

“Wait don’t you guys have a boyfriend and girlfriend?” Luke asked.

“We broke up with them.” I told them.

“Really? How is it that both of you broke up with your other?” Ashton asked.



“I really don’t know if we are together I mean unless Ashlee wants us to?”

“I wanna take it slow.” Ashlee said.

“Yeah of course I wanna take it slow as well but do you want to be together?” I asked her.

“I would love to.” She said before pulling me into a kiss.

Calum and I went to Abraham's room and he was still in his coma. I can’t bare seeing my only brother like this.

I heard someone come in, I turned my body to see who it was and it was the doctor.

“Do you know how long my brother will be in this state?” I asked the doctor.

“We aren’t absolutely sure when he will wake up. But we have a prediction that he would wake up around 3-4 months to a year.”

“Are you kidding me? You expect me to wait for my brother to wake up from his coma that long?!” I said basically screaming.

“We aren’t sure ma’am. He could wake up earlier but…” The doctor trailed.

“But what?”

“I gotta go attend other patients.” He said as his pager rang.

I sat beside my brother’s bed and I held his hand and put it towards my lips to kiss it. I softly cried.

“Please wake up Abraham. You should know how much I need you.” I whispered. As I cried I softly drifted off to sleep.
