My hands were wrapped around the steering wheel and my firm grip was making my knuckles turn white. Traffic was back up for miles and my heart was beating out of my chest.
"Come on! Get your ass out of my way!" I looked down at my phone, 5:45pm "Shit!" I put my hands on the horn. "Hurry the fuck up!"
*Earlier that day*
"It's been rumoured that the band Fifth Harmony has taken a child under their wing and have been taking care of her for the past week and a half. Pictures have been circulating the internet and the young Camila Cabello is seen with the child coming out of the hospital about a week ago. Who is this child and will she be trouble for these young pop stars?"
Stupid gossip shows. They're nothing but lies that get pushed into your head. Rumours that seem real just because the television said it was true. Spencer was not trouble for us if anything she was the one person that could heal us.
I pushed myself off my bed growing tired of the tv and people talking about Spencer like they know her. They don't, they barely know anything.
I made my way to the kitchen to grab something to eat. I've been locked in my room the entire day. Avoiding and ignoring Spencer would be strong words, I was just trying to escape reality. I was hurt and broken when she told me she wanted to go home. She chose to leave me without any form of thought. It hurt, a lot.
Just then my phone went off in my pocket. I looked down and it was a text message from Lauren.
We're almost to the airport. You still have time camz. You should at least say goodbye. -Lauren
I shook my head reminding myself she didn't need me. She doesn't care. She's gone and never coming back. I tossed my phone to the side not wanting a reminder every second of what I'm supposedly missing. Maybe the show was right. She was just a problem.
I put some pizza in the microwave and set it for 30 seconds. When it beeped I took it out but the plate was burning.
"Holy fuck!" I threw the plate but the pizza decided to take a different path and fly onto my white shirt. "Well shit. There goes this shirt." I tried to wipe off the sauce but it was pointless. The shirt was a goner.
I walked upstairs into my room to grab another shirt. "Where is that pullover?" I searched my drawers, the closet, under Dinah's bed. Nothing. Maybe it's in Lauren's room.
I made my way down the hall and opened the door. I searched through her closet and found the pullover. "Ah found you." I pulled off the white shirt tugging on the pullover but as I turned around and the shirt popped over my head my heart stopped. Siting on the bed was one thing that meant the world. Maybe it's a sign or a trap but either way it's here. Spencer's bear we got her was siting on the pillow. The one thing she left behind.
I couldn't help it. My body shut down and I fell to my knees, sobbing. I've tried to keep my emotions bottled up the entire day but this stupid bear is the one thing that breaks me? The one thing to make me lose myself in tears? Was it the bear or her?
I pushed myself up grabbing the side of the bed. "Why?" I sobbed into my hands. "This stupid bear!" I grabbed the bear and threw it across the room. It hit the door and fell to the ground. The tears only came out faster as all the memories hit me like bricks. The day we met, when we asked her to stay, the many heart attacks she gave me, the countless times she made me laugh and smile, the moment she said she was leaving.
"Why did you have to leave me!?" I yelled out. "Why?" My voice broke and my body was shaking with sobs. I looked up and through my tears I could still see the bear laying on the floor. The cursive writing of her name was making me sick. The guilt was sinking in, creating a horrible image in my mind of what I did to her. "What have I done?" I shot up off the bed and scooped up the bear running to the door. I couldn't keep her from going but I can make sure she knows the truth. I love her.
I could never replace her family or ever replace her mom but I sure as hell can try to be the best guardian she deserves to have.
I grabbed my phone off the counter and made my way to the door. Purse and phone in one hand while her bear was in the other. There's no way she's leaving without me saying goodbye.
I sped out of the driveway, breaking every traffic law in the state. "I'm coming Spence. I'm coming."
We all watched as Spencer made her way down the boarding gate and disappear behind the doors.
"She's really gone." Ally continued to sob into my chest. I let out a sigh. "She really is gone." I wrapped my arms around Ally and we headed for the doors. "I really thought Camila would have come to at least say goodbye." I looked over at Normani and she had a point. "I texted her, but she never answered." Just as we were about to push through the doors they burst open and a very out of breath Camila was standing there holding onto a bear.
"Camila!?" All of us shouted. "Where were you? We thought you weren't coming. How could you just leave her like that without saying anything!?" I rambled on with questions but she didn't even look at me. She was looking past me, at something or looking for someone.
"Where is she? Where's Spencer?" She broke her lost gaze, looking at me. My heart sunk. "Camila-"
"No! Lauren where is she!?" She pushed past me walking off to the closed gate. "Spencer?! Spencer I'm here!" She shouted through the airport like a crazy person. Dinah and I made our way over trying to make her stop.
"Camz you need to stop yelling. You're making a scene." I tried to grab her wrist but she pulled back. "I don't give a fuck if I'm making a scene! Let them take pictures! I don't care anymore!"
"Walz come on you need to stop." Dinah tried to pull her back but she shot back. "Dinah stop. Where is she?"
Dinah and I both looked at each other giving nervous glances. We looked at a broken Camila and I let out a deep breath.
"Camila she's gone." Camila's head shook back and fourth. "No she's not! I didn't get to say goodbye! She left her bear, I have to give it back!" I made my way closer closing the gap between us. "Camz she's gone." I breathed out grabbing her hands pulling her body into mine. She tried to fight it but I held on tighter.
"She can't be gone! I made a mistake!" Her grip tightened. "I didn't get to say I love her." Her voice cracked as she nuzzled her head in my neck. I could feel my shirt getting wet and I felt her body shaking.
"Shh it's okay." I rubbed her back as she cried. I looked over at Dinah. I gave her pleading eyes to try and help me carry her out of the airport. The paparazzi were everywhere created a huge scene. Dinah rushed over grabbing the other side of Camila.
"Come on Camz we need to get out of here." All her weight was leaning on Dinah and I. We both carried her out of the airport, pushing past fans and paparazzi.
Ally and Normani made a path for us to follow as we made our way to the car. "Get out of the way!" I shouted over the screaming fans. I love them and love all their support but sometimes they need to realize we're people too and need some damn space.
After making our way through the crowd we found the car. "Here Lauren I got her." I nodded handing over a sobbing Camila to Dinah. I got in the front seat starting the car. I pressed on the gas trying to get out of there as quick as possible.
I looked into the rear view mirror and the sight broke my heart. Camila was wrapped up in Dinah's arms crying her eyes out. Ally was singing trying to calm her down and Normani was up front with me with her head back trying to comfort Camila.
I couldn't take it. My best friend was heart broken and only one thing could fix it. I must be crazy and maybe a little insane but I don't care. Spence we're getting you back. I don't care how hard we have to fight. We're coming.
Hey guys! Sorry about the wait but it's finally here. What do you think about the storyline so far? Let me know. Don't forget to vote and comment. Xo
