27: I’m Living life to the fullest extent
“Please don’t tell my mum.”
Look, it wasn’t an uncommon occurrence for your best friend to do dumb shit. But getting arrested was a line he’d never crossed before, and he was extremely lucky that you were the one to rock up at the station to come and get him.
Calum come wondering out with a sheepish grin, rubbing the back of his neck guiltily and shoulders hunched as he waited for you to rip into him. You were furious, and you knew he could tell. You just glared at him with a shaking head, storming back out of the lobby of the Police Station and into the car park with him following at your heals.
“I’m sorry, y/n!” He called after you but you really were not in the mood.
“Get in the car.” You spat at him, unlocking the white Hyundai and gesturing aggressively for him to get in the passengers seat. You almost felt like the parent, considering Calum looked like a child as he sat pouting next to you. You didn’t start the car, you just sat and tried to find the right words.
“You wanna explain to me,” you started slowly and more calmly than you expected to. “How the fuck you ended up in here?”
“I’m living life to the fullest!” He tried to joke and you rolled your eyes.
“Fuck you, Calum, I’m serious.” You shot, and Calum’s attempt at amusement disappeared in a second flat.
“I’m sorry.” He said again. “I just… wanted to do something - anything. I’m leaving tomorrow and I just… I wanted to see something worth remembering about this place.” He looked almost down, and while your heart ached for him and you wished you could make this better, you were still hurt.
“Am I not enough for you?” You asked. “Am I not worth remembering?”
“That’s not what I meant.” He quickly denied, trying to correct what he just said with panicked eyes.
“It is.” You said, trying your best to stop the prickling behind your eyes. “It is what you meant, Calum. It’s not enough for you that you’re leaving me behind. You had to go and break into The Tower to see something worth seeing and feel something worth feeling because I don’t do it for you.” You watched as Calum’s tears fell first. They were slow and quiet and his bottom lip was trembling the same way yours was.
“Forget it.” You muttered, starting the car and reversing out of the park. “I’ll take you home.”
Hope you liked this!!!! It was more angsty than my original idea, but I felt like tugging on some heartstrings
