based on a calum pref that this lovely girl asked: Can you do a preference where I’m before you exits little sister and I’m 16 a model and I’m dating calum.. But he breaks up with my I get in a fight with my brothers so I decided to fly over to la so I do and when I settle in I go to Starbucks and I happen to run into calum and he just apologizes and he wants me back so then we just cuddle that night!!
It was last night where you made your mistake. A part of you still missed him, although it was Calum that called the relationship off. He didn’t want to call it off, everyone thought you two were the cutest couple in hollywood. But his manager disagreed. The manager thought that Calum was too caught up in love with you and it was keeping away and distracting him from focusing on music.
Four months from the breakup, and you thought you could handle it. Recently with 5 Seconds Of Summer on their tour and becoming more and more popular as days pass by, their getting more shout outs and it’s getting hard for you to let go of what you two had.
You drove Connor’s car around the town last night. Everything was going alright. The sun was slowly going down so it was beautiful to see the orange and yellow pink sky. But the radio station announced that they had 5SOS in at their station, hearing Calum’s giggly voice and hearing him happy crushed you inside.
Your eyes glanced down for a second. You accidentally crashed Connor’s car on the side of the pole. You turned the car off and screamed. You immediately ran outside to go see the damage of Connor’s car. Connor recently purchased a new car a month ago. You knew he was going to get pissed.
As you sit in your bedroom upstairs, music blasted at exceeded volume, you hear a loud knock on your door. Connor allowed himself inside your room.
“Are you fucking serious, (y/n)? You said you were going to go around town for ten minutes last night, and look at it! It’s all messed up!” He angrily yelled at you. You could see his face burning up.
“I’m sorry.” you whispered.
“You’re almost 17 for godsakes! Stop acting like a baby.” Connor crossed his arms over his chest. “Sometimes I wish you used your brain. I mean, you have one don’t you?”
“I’m sorry, okay? I didn’t mean to crash your car! What do you want me to do?” At this point you felt pain in your eyes. Tears were going to come out any minute. The more he yelled at you, the more you felt like everything was your fault.
“You can never use my car ever again! I’m never trusting you with anything. Why can’t you be more like Toby? He’s such a better person-”
“Stop!” You grabbed your car keys and left the house with your car. You could see Connor running after you. The words left from his lips were on repeat. He begged you to get out of the car; said that he didn’t mean the things he spoke. You sped off into the LA region of California since LA and the part where you live were a twenty minute drive.
Peace and quiet. That was what you needed. You drove to the nearest Starbucks you could find.
You peeked through the windows and saw that there wasn’t much people inside. Perfect. You said to yourself. The few people inside were silent and calm. This is exactly what you needed since you had a heated fight with your brother.
It sounded familiar. You looked around to see where that was coming from. His black/blonde streak was up in a quiff. His eyes met yours. He suddenly went silent. Pain was what he was feeling inside. Standing beside him was Ashton. Ashton waved at you as he leaned in to Calum’s ear to whisper something. Calum walked over, a sad/hurt expression, but the excitement of seeing your presence.
“Hey,” he smiled a little.
“Hey,” you smiled back.
Calum sighed. “I’m sorry. I really am (y/n). I didn’t mean it when I said I didn’t like being with you. Do you think we can try this again?”
“I don’t know.” Shrugging your shoulders, you shook your head. Soon, all the pain that’s bubbled up inside finally came out. Tears were streaming down your cheeks, your lungs struggling to gasp for air. Calum hugged you tight. He gently rubbed your back and allowed you to cry against his chest.
“Come join me for coffee at my place. I’ll make your favorite.” He whispered in your ear. He released you from his embrace. You nodded and laughed. He still remembered your favorite coffee.
At his place in LA, he poured the coffee in two mugs adding your favorite creamer to make it taste good. You sat in the living room with a pillow hugged tight against your chest. He passed over the coffee and joined you in the couch.
“Anything important that I’ve missed?” He asked.
“Well, I just crashed Connor’s car last night. That was pretty amazing!” You laughed as he spit out his coffee and laughed with you nearly choking.
“Oh my god! (Y/N), are you alright?” Calum asked concerned.
You sat the coffee down on the coffee table. “Eh, my back hurts a little but I’m alright.”
Calum placed his coffee down on the table as well. “Here, let me give you a back massage to help your back.”
You shook your head, and smiled innocently. “To be honest, I really miss your cuddles. That’ll make me feel better.”
“Of course! I miss our cuddles too.” He laughed.
Calum laid down next to you. Surprisingly, the sofa was big enough for the both of you. You laid down besides him. He pressed his chest closer to your back, his arms wrapping around your waist.
“I always feel safe when I’m in your arms.” You whispered.
“I’ll always be here for you (Y/N).” Calum whispered.
