78 6 7

When I woke up it was 6:00 A.M. the next morning. I literally slept a solid 12 hours. I can't even remember the last time I did that. I'm sure I was a relatively young kid at the time though. I stretched my arms out in front of me while continuously yawning.

I looked over to Mallory's side of the bed to find it empty. Where could she be at 6 in the morning? I know her well enough to know she refuses to wake up before 9 unless she absolutely has too.

I get out of bed and walk into her bathroom to put my hair up. I mean it's not like anyone is gonna see me anyway. Once my hair is in a bun on the top of my head I pad down the stairs and into the living room to find a women in a business outfit pulling a suitcase behind her.

"You must be Breanna! I'm Mallory's mom. Call me Jeanne." She says sweetly then comes and engulfs me in a tight hug. "I am so sorry I didn't get to meet you yesterday, I had meetings all day." Jeanne explains.

"Oh, don't worry about it. It's fine." I reassure her. "I'm so sorry to be rushing out but I got called in this morning and have to go on a business trip. I hope your parents will be okay with you staying here without an adult. I didn't plan on leaving but I guess I have too."

Now that I think about Mallory was always telling me how her mom is never home anymore. She is either with her boyfriend or on business trips. I told my dad and he said since I'm 18 he wouldn't have a problem since I'll be going to college soon and living by myself anyway.

"No, my dad won't mind. It's fine. I hope you have a good time." I say politely as I can manage. I can't help but feel a little anger towards her because of the fact that she leaves Mallory by herself so often.

"Good. Well tell Mallory there's money in my bedside table if you two need anything, and if you need me please call. I will get home as soon as possible. I usually let her have Ashton over during the day to keep her company but he has to leave by 8 so make sure she follows those rules."

I nod my head agreeingly even though I know we won't follow the rules. Mallory has skyped me many times while her mom was away on business and Ashton was there. I mean it isn't hurting anyone so what's the harm?

Jeanne looks down at her cell phone and curses under her breath. "Sorry to rush but my plane leaves in an hour. Have a nice time. I'll be sure to call Mallory when I know the day I'm coming home." She smiles and then rushes out the door.

I scan the rest of the living area looking for Mallory but I don't see her so I walk into the kitchen and hear voices coming from the other living room.

I walk in to find Ashton sprawled out on one couch asleep with Mallory curled up on his chest. My eyes sweep to the other couch and see none other than Calum sitting there with his phone in hand.

"What are you doing here so early?" I question Calum. He looks up from his phone and sighs. "We are going to breakfast at 8 so we can get back and practice for our show later." He replies harshly.

I narrow my eyes at him. Why is he so rude to me? I couldn't have possibly done anything to him. I met him yesterday for crying out loud. I muster up all the courage I have and ask him whats's been nagging me in the back of my mind.

"What the fuck is your problem? Did I piss you off or something?" I question angrily. He looks at me with wide eyes probably shocked I spoke to him that way.

"What are you even talking about?" He replies confused.

Is he stupid? He has to know how shitty he treats me. I can't be imagining all the rude looks he gives me.

"You know what, Calum? Nevermind. Honestly, I don't care whether you like me or not. I came to see Mallory." I reply flatly and start to turn away.

"Fine. Do what you want. I don't fucking care." He chuckles sarcastically.

I groan and storm upstairs. I pick out a blink-182 shirt and some black skinny jeans with combat boots. I take it into the bathroom so I can shower. When I turn the water on its freezing so I have to wait a minute for it to heat up before I get in.

When I get in I start thinking of how rude Calum really is. I haven't done anything to him at all. Maybe he thinks I'm ugly and doesn't want to talk to me. Well, whatever his reasoning is, it's stupid. I have been nothing but kind to him. Maybe I will talk to Mallory and Ashton about him.

I take another few minutes in the shower to wash and condition my hair. When I get out I wrap a towel around my body and get one to dry my hair with.

I quickly get dressed not even bothering to apply makeup just becuase I don't feel like it. I brush my hair and blow dry it making sure it's all the way dry.

I grab my cell phone and head downstairs to find Mallory and Ashton awake, but Calum isn't on the couch he was sitting on earlier.

"Morning!" Mallory squealed excitedly. "Sorry I didn't know the guys were coming over and I didn't want to wake you."

"Don't worry. Oh by the way, your mom wanted me to tell you that there is money in her bedside table, and that Ashton can stay until 8 and then he has to leave." I say with a slight chuckle.

Mallory laughs to herself and looks at Ashton. "Sorry babe, you can't spend the night."

Ashton scoffs and looks towards me. "Breanna won't tell on us. Come on." Ashton pleads.

Mallory looks at him and laughs. "Oh stop. You know I'd let you but only one or two nights. Breanna and I have a lot to talk about.. Like Calum.."

I start laughing. "What about Calum? He is an asshole."

"Hey, don't swear!" Ashton shouts. Mallory looks at him with a confused look on her face. "Ashton, you swear all the time!" She laughs.

He brings a finger to his lips to silence her then looks to me. "So, what's wrong with Calum?" He questions.

I don't want to be rude about his bestfriend but I really don't want to sugarcoat it.

"Honestly, I don't know what his problem is. He just doesn't like me I guess.. But speaking of Calum where did he go?" I quickly change the subject so I don't have to elaborate.

"Well when I fell asleep he was here but then when I woke up he was just gone. Maybe he had to go home for something." Mallory states. "It doesn't matter. He can miss breakfast if he wants. You ready to go?"

I nod eagerly because I am absolutely starving. Mallory and Ashton stand up from the couch and head towards the door while I follow behind them.

I really hope Calum doesn't show up. It would be really awkward after what happened earlier.

We get into Ashton's car and he drives us to the small diner and walk inside. I look across the restauarant to find an open booth for us to fit in but my eyes stop their search when they see a boy with black hair waving us over to him with a smug grin on his lips.
