Almost Breaking Up
You sigh as
you finally hear the door to yours and Luke’s apartment open and hear him
stumble instead, wincing when it sounds like he walks into a wall. You glance
at the clock, seeing that its 3:17 a.m. and you aren’t happy. It’s not that you
were being a clingy, mother-like girlfriend it’s just that this had been
happening 4 nights a week for the past 2 months and you were tired of it. Luke
always came in around this time, blind drunk and you usually look over it, but
tonight, considering it is your birthday and he had made a dinner reservation
for after he came back from the studio, you were pretty mad.
“Heyyyy babbyyyy,” he slurs then giggles coming to give you a hug. You step out
of his reach making him pout.
“What are you
doing, I just wanna cuddles baby,” he whines reaching for you again.
you been Luke?” you ask sharply.
asks, still pouting and looking confused.
“You told me
you would come to pick me up for my birthday dinner straight after work; that
was 9 hours ago Luke.”
giggles then pouts again seeing how angry you’re looking. “Aw baby, I’m sorry…”
you almost shout. “I tired of this happening, I’ve been ignoring it up until
now but I just- I just can’t do this anymore.”
sings out and reaches for you again.
take care of yourself in the morning, I’m leaving so we can have this
conversation when you’re sober.”
you like a lost puppy, watching as you shove some clothes into your bag before
suddenly running out and throwing up in the toilet. You roll your eyes, sling
your bag over your shoulder and slam the door as you walk out, doing what you
should’ve done ages ago. You’re not even sure if you want to come back.
“Can you turn
the game down?”
“No I can’t
babe, there’s nothing wrong with it.”
I’ve had a long day and I just wanted to have a bit more of peace and quiet,”
you say, your voice getting louder.
I’ve had a long day and this helps me!” he shouts back.
it’s all about you isn’t it Michael. You’re the one that obsessively plays
those games, you’re the one whose famous and in a band, you can just do
whatever you want!” you step closer to him, getting angrier and angrier.
“Oh, so now
you’re pulling that one on me, that’s not fucking true and you know it!”
“Oh isn’t it?
Then why don’t you come do the dishes then Michael?” he doesn’t move or say anything
making you snicker. “See! I have to do everything around this stupid apartment
and I’m tired of it!”
should just leave then, I don’t need you anyway!” he yells.
leave!” you storm into your shared room, pulling out a suitcase and starting to
pack in as much as possible whilst furiously wiping the tears the keep spilling
from your eyes. You zip it shut and walk out of the room to see Michael playing
his stupid game with the volume up even louder than before.
“I’ll pick up
the rest of my stuff tomorrow,” you say curtly and head out, slamming the door
for good measure.
you ask calmly, sliding your phone towards him so he could see properly.
On your phone
were pictures of him out on what looked like a date with another girl. You
weren’t accusing him of anything, just curious as to his explanation but
straight away Ashton was on the attack.
saying you actually believe that?!” he says, his voice rising as he roughly
slides the phone back to you.
“No! I was
just asking you Ashton!”
accusing me (Y/N)! You know it and I know you wouldn’t believe me anyway!”
“Not once did
I accuse you, I just wanted to hear the truth because I trust you and I love
you!” you say back, now getting really frustrated.
you don’t! You never have and I’m tired of it (Y/N),” he yells at you.
cry out. “Where is this coming from Ashton? I never accused you of ANYTHING and
I do trust you! I haven’t done anything wrong here.”
it’s always me that does something wrong isn’t it (Y/N). You never do anything
‘cause you’re just soo perfect.”
dick,” you say lowly. “I don’t want you here by morning, get your shit and
leave Ashton, we’re over.”
really seen Calum since he got back from tour. He usually left before you woke
up and came back too late for you to stay awake. You know he is visiting
friends, family and working on new songs for the new album but he has barely
touched you or talked to you since the first night he was back.
making dinner for you since Calum is never home when you surprisingly hear him
he says and kisses your cheek. “What are you making?”
slightly guilty knowing there isn’t enough for him.
“I was making
myself dinner,” you say slowly.
didn’t want to make my any?” he asks, studying your face.
aren’t usually home,” you start to say.
supposed to mean?” he snaps.
seen you since you got back from tour Cal, so I didn’t make you anything
because we haven’t had dinner together for 8 weeks.”
blaming this on me (Y/N)! It’s not my fault!” he yells, throwing this jacket
onto the counter.
“It is your
fault Calum!” you yell back and turn to face him properly. “You’re never here!
I’ve barely seen you because YOU’RE NEVER HERE!”
just go for good then, god I try to be a good fucking boyfriend but instead I
get a clingy girlfriend,” he scoffs causing tears to fill your eyes, you aren’t
even a clingy girlfriend!
“Get out Calum; get
out of my fucking apartment and my life. I don’t want to see you again!” you
seethe and storm off to the bedroom only letting yourself cry when you hear the
front door slam.
