Imagine Callie saying, “I love Brandon.”
“Yes!” I whispered to myself in victory as I made it up to the window in Mariana’s room. I tapped on the glass lightly waiting for Mariana to open the window. It was around midnight and all the lights were out in the Fosters residence. Now was the only time I could see Brandon. Thankfully, all the girls in the group home agreed to cover for me. I was desperate to see Brandon after two weeks of just texting and skyping.
Mariana then appeared in her pajamas with a messy bun on top of her head. She opened the window for me and smiled, “I missed you so much!”
I wrapped my arms around her and hugged her tightly, “You have no idea how much I missed you.” I climbed into the familiar bedroom. I missed this place. I looked over to see my bed in the far corner still perfectly neat and did.
“Thank you for helping me get to Brandon,” I said turning back to her.
“I’d do anything just to see you again. Oh and before you go,” Mariana went over to her dresser and fished through her small makeup bag. She pulled out a small tube of lipstick and smiled, “Put some of this on." I sighed and rolled my eyes before heading over to the mirror. I glided the light pink lipstick across my lips then handed it back to Mariana.
"You look hot!” Mariana squealed, “Now, go!”
I took a deep breath before opening the door slightly to see the empty, dark hallway. I looked over to see Brandon’s room down the hallway right across from Stef and Lena’s room. I tiptoed out of Mariana’s room and made it past Jesus and Jude’s room. I’ll have to make a stop there before I go just to see Jude. It’s been a month since I’ve seen him. I hope he isn’t still mad at me.
I made it all the way across the hallway between Brandon and the Moms’ bedroom. I tapped on the door lightly waiting for Brandon to open it. Suddenly, the hallway lights turned on.“Great,”I thought. I turned around to see Stef standing in the doorway with her arms crossed of her chest. Then, Brandon opened his bedroom door. I didn’t dare to turn around.
“Callie, get out of this house now,” Stef said in a low, serious tone that brought shivers up my spine.
“Look, Mom-” Brandon began to say.
“Not one word, Brandon,” Stef cut him off, “Callie, I will call the cops if you don’t leave right this second.”
“Stef,” Lena shot her a glare before coming over to me, “Do you understand that you will be sent to another group home if you get caught leaving?”
I nodded, “Yes, I-I know the consequences.”
“Then, why would you leave?” Lena questioned.
“Because…I needed to see Brandon,” I said.
“You would rather be sent to another group home just to see Brandon?” Stef said in a mocking tone before shaking her head.
“I’d do anything for him,” I replied, “Because I love Brandon." Stef and Lena looked at me as if I was crazy, but it was the truth. I’d do anything for Brandon.
"You’re sixteen, for God’s sake,” Lena sighed, “You don’t know what love is." I felt the anger slowly build inside of me.
"You know,” I began to say, “Both of you taught me what love is. I learned that love is love and it doesn’t matter what people think of you when it comes to love. I never ever thought that I would ever find someone capable of loving someone like me before I met Brandon. He’s always been there for me since the day I met him and he makes me happy and loved. And if you can’t respect that, I’m sorry.”
I ran down the stairs with tear stained cheeks. “Callie, wait!” Brandon called. I made it past the yard before Brandon grabbed my arm. He pulled me towards him and placed his lips onto mine. His lips moved against mine in unison as he wiped away my tears with his thumb.
He pulled away from the kiss then his eyes looked deeply into mine. “Everything is going to be okay,” Brandon reassured me.
“I promise.” All was fine, until we heard sirens in the distance.
