a/n: all my calum ones turn out like this. i love this one so much.
It’d been so sudden that you weren’t even sure what he had planned. Half an hour ago, you were planning on having a night to yourself: just you, your book, and maybe some music. That, of course, couldn’t happen in Calum’s mind.
“Come over,” his text read. “I have a surprise.” Your first thought immediately went to where you thought his was going. “It’s not that. Just come over, please,” he begged. Following the text was a picture of him pouting and with that, he knew he had you.
You didn’t bother to change out of your pajamas as you slipped on your shoes and made the trek next door to Calum’s home. The lights were all shut off, meaning the rest of the family was asleep, and you knew better than to knock on the front door this late at night. You and Calum had been caught out way too late too many times.
Before you could even reach the front door, you saw his head poke up over the fence in the backyard. “Babe?” he called, as quietly as he could. You grinned as you saw him, always surprised by what he managed to come up with.
You let yourself into the backyard through the fence door to see he’d set up a tent for the two of you to share, along with two sleeping bags that he had zipped together to form one big one. You could just see him through the flashlight that he had on the ground.
Calum tugged you into his arms first thing, planting a kiss on your cheek as he hugged you tightly. “Missed you, sweetheart,” he mumbled, swaying lightly as you held each other.
You laughed lightly. “You just saw me an hour ago,” you whispered back, poking his nose as you separated from him. He grinned as he watched you sit down on the giant sleeping bag before joining you himself. “So what’s the surprise?”
“That’s one hour too long,” Calum pouted, taking your hand in his. He always had to be touching you someway, even if it was just your fingers laced with his. “I wanna watch the stars with my star,” he explained. You bumped your elbow into his side at his cheesy comment. “I’m trying to be romantic.”
