“I made pancakes.” Calum said softly, sticking his head into my bunk to see if I was awake.
We walked out into the kitchen.
“Sorry they’re not perfect, I’m not the best cook.” Calum said.
“I’m sure they taste delicious, Cal.” I said, hugging him.
“You okay?” He asked.
“We need to talk.” I answered.
He looked at me in shock, and sat down at the table. I sat beside him.
“Management contacted me.” I said.
“And they said?” He asked.
“They want us to break up and then let all the fans know when we do.” I answered.
It was silent. He was probably trying to comprehend what I just told him.
“We don’t have to listen to them right?” He asked.
“I don’t know,” I answered, “They could drop us. Our whole tour could go downhill if we lose our management.”
“I don’t care about that, Mads. So what if we don’t have our management? They treat us like shit anyway and if I’m being honest, the fans will still support us if we have management on our tour or not. I wouldn’t want them to take away the love of my life eith-“ He explained, cutting off his last sentence.
“I’m the love of your life?” I asked, giggling.
“Yeah.” He answered, blushing.
It went silent.
“I don’t want to lose you, Madi.” Calum said.
“I don’t want to lose you either.” I replied.
“Tell management we’re not breaking up. Then we’ll see what to do when the time comes.” He said.

I was laying in my bunk with Calum. He fell asleep and I was working on some song lyrics on my laptop. I got up from the bunk slowly to make sure I didn’t wake Calum up. I made my way to the back TV room.
I opened the door to see Ashton, Luke and Michael sitting there.
“Hey Mads.” Michael said, looking up from his phone.
“Hey guys. Where’s Luna?” I asked.
“She’s sleeping.” Ashton answered.
“Where’s Calum?” Luke asked.
“He’s sleeping.” I answered, slightly giggling because the answers to both questions were the same.
“What’s wrong?” Ashton asked.
“What?” I replied.
“We know you love working and you’ve only been at your bunk for 30 minutes. Usually we wouldn’t see you for an hour or so.” Ashton said.
“Management wants Calum and I to break up and to make sure the whole world knows when we do.” I said.
Everyone gasped. Michael even dropped his phone in shock.
“You’re fucking kidding right?” Michael asked.
“Nope. They just texted me a few hours ago.” I answered.
“Does Calum know?” Luke asked.
“No.” I answered, playing with my hands in my lap to avoid making eye contact.
“Listen Madi,” Ashton said, “If anyone thinks they can pull you guys apart, they’re wrong. I haven’t seen Calum this happy in months, if not years. You’re his happiness and if management thinks they can take you two away from each other they should check again.”
“Ashton, are you sure you don’t want to be a motivational speaker?” Michael joked.
“Shut up. I’m just trying to help.” Ashton replied, laughing.
“I would still let Calum know though.” Luke said.
“I will. Thanks guys.” I said, leaving the room and returning to my bunk to get some more work done.

-the next day-
Ashton texts me where I need to meet him and the guys at. He literally wants me to meet them at MSG. What the actual hell. For me that’s a big deal but for them it’s a normal Tuesday night. I live a couple blocks away from MSG so I just decide to walk there. I post a picture on Snapchat of my outfit and walk out the door. I really loved my outfit today. It is summer in NYC so it can get kinda hot. Some days it’s not bad but other days it feels like your skin is melting off your body. I hit shuffle on a playlist and a 5SOS song comes on and I smile. Safety Pin happens to come on which Ashton sings quite a bit in it. His solo comes on and I smile. I loved hearing him sing. Whenever we were both still at home, we would go on adventures in his car and he would drive us around Sydney. We would sing at the top of our lungs. Those are some of the best memories I have of us. We were so carefree. After 10 or so minutes, I get to MSG. I walk up to the entrance Ashton told me to come to. I text him that I’m here. There was a security guard who looked concerned that I was there. “Um, Miss. you can’t be here. Please leave.” I get ready to say something and Ashton pops out from behind the door. “Hey, Lil!” He says. The security guard looks shocked then smirks at us. “Wait? Is this Lily? The one you always talk about?” He asks. Ashton laughs nervously and scratches behind his neck. “Lily, why don’t you come in!” He says. I laugh and walk towards the door. I hear Ashton whispering to the security guard and he laughs. After a couple seconds, Ashton pops up beside me and smiles. “I’ll show you around on our way to see the guys.” I nod and follow him through the hallway. He shows me their dressing room, the kitchen area, backstage, and then finally once we reach backstage, it was time to see the boys. We hear random guitar noises and them talking and messing around and I smile. “Okay so, the stage is right behind this curtain. We are finishing up rehearsal. I also might have told them you weren’t coming until right before the show so they will definitely be surprised.” (MORE IN COMMENTS)

“So where do we start first?” I ask him right before I take a sip of my coffee. “Well, lets start with the big important stuff and then backtrack.” He says. I nod for him to go first. “ I want to hear about you.” I say smiling at him. He smiles back. “ well, you obviously know we left to go on tour with one direction and we made our first album. Then, did the same thing again. We made another album and we are on tour right now for it And working on our third album. That’s the simple version.” He finished then took a sip of his coffee looking up at me. “You can’t just tell me that and not give me details!” I say. “You know I have to have details!” I say laughing. “I know you do. But we will fill those in later.” He says laughing at me. “That’s amazing though, ash. You have accomplished so much. I’m so proud of you.” I say genuinely. I was proud of him. He has done so much in these past couple years that most people don’t even do in a lifetime. He smiled at me and then said “thank you, lil.” “Now, enough about me. Tell me about you.” He looked at me ready to listen. “Well where do I begin?” I think about it for a moment and then know. “After you left, I graduated high school. I applied to a bunch of universities. Around that time, I came to America for the first time and I came here. I immediately fell in love with it and knew this is where I belonged. I got into NYU and moved here. I came all by myself. I packed up and left. I found an apartment when I visited and that’s it. I’m in my third year of college now.” I say and Ashton smiled while I talked. “I knew you would love it here. When the boys and I had our first show here, we got to sightsee and visit the city. I knew once I saw it that it was for you. I thought about you the whole time.” Ashton says. He changed subjects but still on me. “Tell me more.” I laughed a him. He was eager to catch up and I loved that. After a while of catching up, talking, and drinking coffee, I looked at my phone and saw that it was 6pm. “Um Ashton, we have been here for almost four hours.” (MORE IN COMMENTS)

“Four years was way too damn long, lil.” He says walking into my apartment. I shut my door and lock it behind us. This is NYC after all. “Trust me, I know.” I say. He turns around after looking at my apartment and smiles. “I really like your place.” He says genuinely. “Thank you, ash” I say. “ we have a lot of catching up to do. Wanna go somewhere?” He asks. “I know of the perfect place!” I say grabbing my wallet, my phone and his hand and make my way toward the door.

**IMAGINE BELOW** personal imagine for @lukehemmmmigs
Calum and you have been dating for a little over a year. He was supposed to leave for tour soon so he spent every chance he got with you. It was a quiet Saturday morning so you two stayed in bed cuddling. Duke was still asleep by your feet on the bed. Calum had on pj pants while you had on shorts that got covered by his long band shirt. "Good morning princess," he whispered while pulling you closer to his warm body, "You're freezing Manda" His hands rub your back moving his covers mostly over to you so you warm up. You run your fingers over his tattoos lightly, as if you were tracing them. Calum warms you up quickly, mostly due to him holding you close to his warm chest. His sings to your softly while his hands roamed your back. Duke waked up and makes his way up to you guys through all of the blankets. He lays between the two of you and started licking your face causing you to giggle. "Duke!" You giggle holding him in your arms. Calum smiles brightly taking a picture to set as his new phone background. Once Duke settles down he stays in your arms. Calum kisses your forehead then whispers, "My perfect family" You three spend the rest of the day snuggled up in bed watching movies. •
