The Dealer

Calum Hood is a drug dealer. Jayde Mills is Calum's "friend". Jayde never realized how bad the drug thing was until she visited Calum in the city and he was high the whole time.


8. Chapter 8




Jayde is 14 weeks pregnant. End of October.

Usually for Halloween I throw a party with the help of Emily but she no longer answers my calls or my texts. I waited a few weeks to try to talk to her to give her some space but once I actually tried, she ignored me. It was hard to not have her here. Not have her be involved with my pregnancy like I always thought she would be.

"You okay?" Calum asked as I put candy in a bowl for the trick or treaters. I shrugged looking at him. I loved having him here. He was a great help around the apartment while I was at work. He did the food shopping for me while I was gone. He rearranged everything in my guest bedroom so that we can start thinking about setting up a nursery.

"I just..." I sighed. "Why doesn't she wanna talk to me?" I questioned.

"I don't know, baby." He commented rubbing my back. I couldn't help but think that it was because of Calum. I just prayed that she didn't think I was choosing him over her. I would give my life for Emily. "I'm sorry." He commented before going to get the door to let Ashton and his girlfriend in.

"Hey!" He shouted hugging me. "How are you?" He asked.

"I'm good. No more morning sickness so that's good." I smiled hugging him back.

"This is Bryana." He pulled back introducing me to his girlfriend. She gave a small wave and I did the same.

"There's beers in the fridge. I have wine, sparkling water, water, whatever. Help yourself. There's also pizza in the kitchen." I finished saying just as the door opened and Emily walked in. "Emily! Hi!" I smiled going to hug her.

"I um, was just bringing some of your stuff that you left at my place." She commented.

"Oh." I smiled a little. "Thanks." I smiled setting the box down on a table that I had in the living room. "Do you wanna stay?" I asked hoping that she would.

"No. Not if he's here." She spat at Calum's direction.

"So you're just not going to be friends with me anymore?" I questioned looking at her and then to Calum. I needed Calum here.

"Not if he's here. I could deal with you hooking up with him but I can't deal with him being here all the time."

"He's the father of my baby. He's gonna be here."

"Yeah, okay. Until he meets someone else and knocks them up too. He's a deadbeat, Jayde. He won't be here for long. And don't call me when it's over." She said opening the door and slamming it behind her. I looked at Calum as tears filled my eyes and I rushed off to our room.

"Jayde, baby, don't listen to her. I will always be here for you and the baby. For as long as you want me to be. I promise." Calum said from outside the door. "Please open the door."

"Leave me alone." I sniffed laying in bed. "I hate you!" I shouted even though I didn't mean it.

"Don't say that." He sighed. "Please just open the door." He commented and when I didn't open it he headed to Ashton. I wasn't sure if Ashton was staying or if Calum was asking them to leave.

I wasn't sure how long I laid there but eventually there was knocks at the door.

"Jayde? Can you please let me in? I don't really wanna sleep on the couch." Calum muttered from outside the door.

"It's unlocked." I said. He came in and changed out of his clothes and into pj's and got into bed beside me.

"I'm sorry. I would have never hooked up with you if I knew she hated me so much." He looked so sad. "I never meant for you guys to fall out. I just... I'm sorry." He turned over, his back facing me and shut the bedside table light off.

I had no idea what to say to him.

"I'm sorry I said I hate you. I didn't mean it."

"I know." He answered. I knew he was upset. I wasn't sure if he was upset with what I said or what she said and it made my heart hurt. I had so much faith in Calum and I was praying that he would stick around for this baby. He didn't need to stay here for me but it would be amazing if he would stay here for the baby.

I laid awake all night feeling guilty about everything. I should have been more careful. I should have made Emily feel like she wasn't going to be thrown away. I should have done a lot of things different.

I got up before Calum to shower and then watched Netflix on the t.v in the living room. I was a few episodes into Supernatural when Calum came out dressed in workout clothes.

"I'm gonna go for a run." He commented.

"Okay, be careful. Call me if something happens."

"Yeah, maybe." He answered leaving. I knew that it was forever going to change how Calum and I acted towards one another. I hoped it didn't make him change his mind about wanting to live with me and take care of the baby.

Emily was my only real close friend so I didn't really have anyone else to talk to about everything. It sucked. I could talk to Ashton but he was much closer with Calum and I didn't want him to be stuck in the middle.

It was hours before Calum came home and I was in kitchen making some food when he came in and grabbed a water bottle.

"Want something to eat?" I asked.

"What I want is for you to stop acting like everything is okay."

"I'm not acting like everything is okay. I just asked if you wanted some food." I looked at him.

"No. I don't." He commented and left the room leaving me to myself. I of course didn't want to eat after that but forced myself to eat so that I wouldn't get sick. I cleaned up my mess before going to the bedroom to grab my laptop to finish a thing for work to find Calum packing a bag.

"You're leaving?" I questioned.

"I'm gonna go stay with Ashton for a few days. Give you some space." He was already giving up on me.

"You know it's okay. If you don't feel right living here you don't have to."

"It's not that, Jayde."

"Well what the fuck?" I shouted. "I'm trying my hardest to please everyone! I have no one! My parents aren't as supportive as I thought they would be! My best friend hates me! My baby daddy is leaving." I let out a sob. "What about me?"

"What about you?! It's always about you!" He shouted. "It's always something with you Jayde! Everyone was right! We shouldn't have ever hooked up. None of this would have happened." He threw some clothes into the bag. "When is it ever going to be about me?" He questioned.

He zipped up the bag and walked to the door and I followed behind. I wanted to say something to stop him but I wasn't sure what to say.

"My parents were right about you. You're just a needy slut." I sucked in a breath shocked by his words. Calum was never the type to call girls sluts. He never called me a slut, ever and we've been friends for as long as I can remember. He slammed the door behind him and left me alone.

I was so naive to believe that it was ever going to work out. I should have known. I knew that he wasn't father material. I knew it before we even ever started hooking up. He cared about nothing and no one but himself.

Calum hadn't talked to me in nearly two weeks and as I was getting closer to 16 weeks my stomach started to grow. It was still small but big enough that if someone saw them they would realize that I was pregnant.

I debated if I should send him a picture of my belly but instead I posted one online. I so badly wanted Calum to come back and we could talk this through and if he wanted to move out I wasn't going to stop him. I hated myself. I really did. I felt gross, I felt dirty. And as the days went on I started to believe what Calum said.

I was needy. I was a slut. I was hurt that his parents ever said that about me but my parents said things about Calum too.

I was sitting at home reading baby books when there was a knock at the door and I nearly ran to get it.

"Julia. Hey, what are you doing here?" I questioned.

"Haven't heard from you in a few days. Weren't sure if you were still alive." She joked as I let her in. "Are you okay?"

"Got into a fight with Calum and haven't heard from him in two weeks." I shrugged closing the door. "He'll probably never talk to me again and I'll be a single mom." I sat down on the couch.

"Maybe Ashton is talking some sense into him."

"It's been two weeks." I looked at her. "I'm alone in this." I whispered.

"You're not. I'll help." She had her own life. I didn't want her dropping her job and her husband to help me out.

"I can do it. I'll be fine." I shrugged. "I just thought he would be different you know?" I asked and she nodded.

"What did you fight about?"

"Emily came by and called him a deadbeat. So we kinda fought about that? He also told me I was a needy slut."

"He called you that?" I nodded. I never really saw myself as a slut. Yeah, I'd slept with a few people but lots of people do that during college. "Maybe I'll go kick his ass."

"No. Don't do anything. It's my fault anyway." I shook my head. "I expected too much." I had no clue what I was doing anymore.
