You were sound asleep in your bed when your phone started ringing. You tried ignoring it but whoever it was determined to get you up and kept calling.
“God damn it” you groaned before picking it up.
“Y/N! What are you doing? Are you in bed? Its 10 PM on a Thursday. We haven’t gone out together in so long. I just got off work and I can meet you anywhere you want” Y/B/F/N yelled into the phone.
“Y/B/F/N, I really don’t think I should be going out right now. Unlike you, my ass has to be at work at 8 AM tomorrow morning”
“Come on, stop making excuses. We did this all the time when you were in school. It’s been 3 weeks since you saw him. He hasn’t called. He hasn’t texted or sent some carrier pigeon. I think it’s time for you to let it go. I know you still love him but clearly he doesn’t give a shit anymore.”
A part of you knew she was right. It had been almost a month since he kissed you on the sidewalk. You had tried contacting him a few times, but he never responded so you gave up. But everything had re-opened that day, all of your feelings came back to the surface. A part of you was still holding onto a little bit of hope. Maybe he had just gotten scared. Maybe he didn’t know how you felt about everything that had happened and wanted to give you space. Or maybe Y/B/F/N was right and he doesn’t care.
“At this rate we’ll never find a house!”. You exclaimed walking into the fifth house of the day. Lydia wasn’t too far behind, she however walked into radiating confidence that this would be the one.
“Have some faith Y/N!”
It was little hard to have faith. Lydia and you decided with much thought that moving into a house would be a good idea. What you forgot to take into account was searching for the right, suitable home required a great deal of research, energy and above all patience.
Observing the kitchen and living room which was one big open space, you heard Lydia’s heels click along the floorboards. “Running out of faith here Lydia. We’ve inspected 5 houses and all of them lacked one thing or another”.
She re-joined you in the hallway with a big plastered smile on her face. “Well 5th times the charm, because this house seems perfect to me. What do you think?”.
Flicking through the brochure, it certainly had appeal. The house was nearby local shops, wasn’t a far drive or walk from Scott’s or anyone else’s house for that matter and as far as you were aware didn’t have any creepy previous home owner back story.
“It certainly seems like a winner”. You mumbled, Lydia’s smile growing bigger with every word. She excitedly shook your arm. “Let’s make an offer!?”.
Telling Lydia no now would be useless, you could tell that she was already in love with this house and nothing was going to change her mind about purchasing it. Following her lead as she practically nearly broke out in a run, she found the sales retailer, chatting away immediately.
Walking out onto the porch, this was very quickly becoming a real reality. You and Lydia sharing a house and living together. Feeling her presences beside you, holding up keys. “It’s officially all ours!”.
“Wait, already? But you just put in an offer?”. Replying in disbelief
Lydia smirked, “I can be very persuasive when I wanna be. We can move in anytime. What do you say? Care to move in with me?”.
Laughing, you nodded watching Lydia ran to her car. “Well come on, we have packing to do!”. She yelled from the footpath.
Shaking your head at how eager she was, you made your way to her car. Texting everyone and anyone you knew that was available to come and help you and Lydia move into your brand new home.
