Today is my jogging day.
Just kidding, I only jog like once every few months.
Today is one of those rare days.
I leave a note on the counter for Peggy and head outside.
I make about 7 blocks down and check the time.
I jog one more block to my favorite cafe, McGuff's.
I walk inside and hear my favorite song ever: Beside You.
I text Ashton.
"Your song is playing in McGuffs(:" I send.
He starts typing right away.
"Which one love?"
"Beside you. My fave"
"Yes!! Mine too. Coming over later?"
"Maybe so. I'm off for a jog"
I order a sandwich and a water and sit down.
A group of young girls walk in and start pointing at me.
This is strange.
One of them walks up and asks for a picture.
"You must have me confused with someone else." I laugh.
"Aren't you Caroline?" She asks me.
"You're friends with Ashton! I saw you two the other day at Westgate."
"You want a picture with me? I'm just a friend." I say.
I get up and take pictures with her and her friends.
"Thank you!" They say and go to order.
I finish my sandwich and continue my jog.
Peggy calls me.
"Hello?" I answer.
"There's someone here for you." She says quietly.
"Calum freaking Hood."
My heart starts pounding.
"I'm jogging this morning!"
"Get your sweaty self home because- uh, because Mr. Hood would like to speak with you." Her tone of voice changes.
I laugh and hang up.
Time to pick up the pace, Caroline.
I walk into my apartment probably looking like a mess.
Calum turns around from his spot on the couch and stands up quickly.
"Hi." He says.
"Hi." I respond.
"I wanted to bring you to our place. Ash told me to come get you."
"Uh, I need to shower and stuff. I might be a while." I tell him nervously.
"I have to go pick up lunch. I'll be back, alright?" He asks.
