"Where are you from?" I asked as he drove off back to the campus after out little lunch out. He was being tolerable now compared to what he was before and I could see our friendship blooming in the near future, that is if he doesn't go back to being the brooding black bean that he was when we first met.
"Hell." He answered simply, I couldn't say wheather he was being sarcastic or he had actually sprouted from the darkest pit of hell.
He didn't ask me anything but I didn't expect him to, from what I've known about him it was clear he was one of those who kept things to himself and didn't bother with others matters.
With beautiful songs playing on the radio the ride back was nice, he was silent and so was I. It was a comfortable silence that enveloped us. Soon we reached our campus and I waited for him while he parked the car, it was surprising how
Four days passed and I am not ready for classes to start. Bed sounded much more comfortable than desks and the pillow did more good to my head than the boring lectures.But Laurent had different ideas, for the past two hours he has been bustling around like a bee getting ready for the first day of University."Aelin! If you don't wake up in the next five minutes you will be late."I chose not to respond and snuggled deeper into the blanket that provided me protection from all things evil, it was a perfect day to sleep in and do nothing but it was also the day to get out and attend class and make new friends. How nice."Aelin!" He shouted in my ear and I screamed in fright, bouncing up on the bed. Laurent chuckled and went back to fixing his hair leaving me there to calm my poor heart and take a breath. My ears were ringing from the assault on them, I will have pay him back for the unwanted favour s
He took me to the cafeteria.That was his definition of someplace nice, huh.Laurent has better taste then him, even the ice-cream parlour that he chose was of a good quality. Not to compare bit Michael had always been a penny pincher, even though he lacked nothing.Big house, big cars and house staff running around at his beck and call. And yet, he had me pay at many occasions when we went out. I used to think it was normal but now that I think of it he would always order expensive dishes and when it was his turn to spend he would get simple thing, all his bad qualities were surfacing only now."What is it?" I asked sitting opposite to him on the table. My leg was bouncing in anticipation."What? I can't talk to my girlfriend?" He chuckled and reached out to hold my hand, I tried to smile but today it didn't reach to my eyes like it usually did in his presence.
I ran until my legs couldn't hold my weight anymore, I run until my tears freely dripped down my face and sobs broke me down.I fell on my knees and left my weak side show in the corner of an isolated playground. I was weak, that was the truth. I wasn't strong like the heroines in movies and stories, I was weak enough to be broken down by someone like Michael.I let myself fall back and drew my knees closer and sobbed into it for a long time, until my tears dried I cried. Until there was nothing left to pour for that person who hurt me in the worst way.Even after the difficulties I faced at home I kept my head up and met them with confidence, I had found my solace in him, making him my guardian angel and what he did?He found a replacement.Like a broken toy he threw me away when I didn't work for him anymore. I despised myself for investing so much of myself on someon
Together but silently we left the playground where he found me, I was hungry, since I had missed lunch so we made a quick stop to eat something then without delay went back to the campus.Because we were already late we decided to skip the rest of the day and stay in bed doing nothing, it was our favourite time pass and one of the only few things common in us and very effective when it came to improving our mood."I'll have to go shopping in the evening, we are out of few things and you finished the snacks again. How are you not fat?" Laurent complained looking at the almost empty snacks drawer. He pinned me with an accusing glare with the intention of making me feel guilty."Yeah, okay I'll buy this time as we decided." I mumbled hanging my head low.He sighed, "Let it be, you are going through a heartbreak so I'll buy this time. Want to watch a movie?""Why are you be
Aelin paced around the room waiting for her roommate, Laurent, to come back from the unexpected meeting with her ex-boyfriend.Half an hour had already passed and there was no sign of Laurent. In that half an hour Aelin had managed to finish two packets of chips and a can of soda. She shouldn't be worrying so much but something made her anxious for no reason.They were just teenage boys, not rival gangsters who would be pointing guns at each other's foreheads.But one thing in particular was nagging at the back of her mind. Judging by the way Michael was behaving after seeing Laurent, it looked like he knew him.Michael was angry that Laurent was her roommate and had also taken the liberty to come all the way to their dorm to talk to him about something that didn't concern her.
That night Laurent couldn't sleep.His mind played the conversation with Michael over and over again, troubling him. Laurent had enough of his games and wanted to just get this over with.But he had to get Michael up there willingly.Flashback to the conversation."Let's get straight to the point, why are you here?" Michael asked as soon as they were in a hidden corner of the hallway.Laurent casually leaned on the wall and clicked his tongue."I didn't want to be here either. I'm hating the job so far.""That's not my answer.""You are wanted up there, everyone is pissed at you. You are a fucker and they now realise it." Laurent smirked in triumph as he saw Michael's face getting red."Watch your mouth Laurent, don't forget who you are talking to."Laurent laughed amu
