"Calum, was she kicked out of her house or something?"

"not exactly, but she really needs to. I'm serious"

"Is she knocked up or something? I swear Calum if.."

"NO Mum, I can't really say why... She needs somewhere to stay. Please?!?"

"Okay, what's her name?"

"I um don't know" I tug at the collar of my shirt and look down the hall.

"What do you mean, you better explain at home" I hear her sigh

"Bye" I say

I walk into the garage to see her learning to play the drums.

"Oh, just scars" He says his smile faltering a bit.

"Oh, wow. Um pardon me... I'm just going to use the loo"
