SONG FOR THE CHAPTER: When I’m Small - Phantogram
I sat up and put a blanket over top of my half naked body. Cameron looked out of the window and refused to look at me. After waiting in silence, I finally said “Cameron.” “No Lauren, just please, leave me alone.” Cameron snapped at me. I looked at him across the room. “it was an accident. You know that. I’m used to… saying his name… considering it was only like a month ago that him and I were…” I said. “Don’t remind me.” Cameron said firmly. I stood up, still holding the blanket around my body and walked over to him. “Cam… come on. You know I only have feelings for you.” I said softly. “Do I? Do I really know that?! Because this whole day you seemed to be thinking about him. I knew you’d never be able to get over him. I mean hell, you guys were about to get married!” Cameron screamed. “Until I called it off. For you.” I interrupted him. Cameron sighed and rolled his eyes. “I’ll never compare to Jack.” He mumbled. “Are you serious?” I asked. “When I was dating him, he always said he’d never compare to you. You’ve got to stop being so self-conscious!” I shouted. “What, is it wrong for me to feel bad when the girl I just asked to be my girlfriend shouts her ex fiance’s name when we’re about to have sex?!” Cameron screamed. It hit me. I was a horrible person. Nothing would ever be okay. The second I thought things were going okay with Cameron, I scream my ex’s name? What was wrong with me! Tears slipped out of my eyes. “Cameron…” I whispered and put my hand on his upper arm. “No. Leave me alone please.” Cameron said, pushing my hand off of him and walking out of the room.
I collapsed onto the huge bed. There was no way I was sleeping tonight. I laid there, alone for half of the night. Now, it wasn’t only my sleeping problems themselves keeping me up, but my thoughts. I suddenly felt hungry and looked at my phone. 1:45am. I shrugged my shoulders and got out of bed in only my bra and panties since I hadn’t brought any other clothes. I walked down the stairs and tried to make my way through the dark house to find the kitchen. Suddenly, the water in the sink started running. I screamed at the top of my lungs and reached my hands against the wall until I found the light switch. Cameron was standing there in his boxers. He turned to look at me slowly. “Oh my god you scared the shit out of me…” I whispered. I was breathing heavily. Cameron put his hand on my bare back and rubbed it slowly. “Sorry,” He whispered. “No, I am.” I said. “What are you doing up at this hour?” Cameron asked. “You know I can never sleep.” I said. Cameron sighed and nodded. “Right,” He whispered. I nodded and grabbed a glass of water. I sat up on the counter, waiting for Cameron to go back upstairs and end this awkward moment. But he didn’t. He stood there quietly.
After about 15 minutes passed, I got up. “I’m gonna head back up now…” I said. “Me too.” Cameron said, following behind me up the stairs. I walked into the master bedroom and to my surprise, Cameron walked in behind me. “I thought you were still mad?” I asked slowly. “I am. But if we’re both gonna be laying in bed unable to sleep, why not just lay together? And I hate it when you can’t sleep.” Cameron said. I cracked a small smile and fell back onto the bed. Cameron got in next to me and wrapped his arms around me. He started tracing small circles into my skin, causing me to slowly doze off to sleep.
I woke up in Cameron’s arms and smiled. I got up carefully and grabbed Cameron’s shirt from last night, pulling it on to cover myself. I walked over to the large French doors that led out to a balcony. I stepped out and was hit with the amazing ocean breeze. Only a few minutes later I heard the door open behind me and Cameron stood next to me leaning on the railing. “I’m really sorry. I know how hard everything with Jack has been on you.” I said. Cameron looked at me and nodded. “It’s okay. I’m willing to deal with all of that if it means I get to be with you.” Cameron said. I smiled as he pulled me close to him. He kissed my forehead and said “Now I don’t know about you but I’m ready to tell the world. Even though everyone probably knows by the photos from last night. They should hear it from me.” Cameron said. I nodded, as he pulled out his phone and selected a photo of us. He went on Instagram and typed a pretty lengthy caption before clicking “post.” Now everyone would know. All of the guys, all of the fans, everyone. I heard my phone start dinging constantly from inside. I turned to go get it but Cameron stopped me and put his hands on my waist. He shook his head. “It doesn’t matter what they say.” He said calmly. I smiled and nodded before kissing his lips softly.
As bad as it sounded, I had already gone through the “hate” phase 2 times before. Once, when all of the guys would post photos with me and the fans didn’t like that I hung out with them a lot. Then of course, when jack and I actually started dating. Third time’s a charm, at least that’s what I was hoping.
