I was feeling the angst again. Inspired by this video.
A breeze flew over you as you sat out on the deck of your small apartment, ruffling the leaves of your almost dead houseplant.
You should really just get rid of that thing.
You stood there, looking out over the busy city that was known as New York. Your home for the past few months.
The home that didn’t feel like home.
You didn’t know a lot of people here, aside from a few friends that lived on the other side of the city.
They seemed to be better off than you, getting better grades and better lifestyles.
You didn’t get to see them for a while.
And you couldn’t seem to get in contact with them right now, when you really needed their support.
Your family was all the way across the country on the west coast. And today you had just gotten the news that you’re best friend had past away.
Your dog, Bailey.
Bailey had been with you ever since you were seven years old. She was a birthday gift, and became your best friend.
She was there through every breakup, every test, every trial and tribulation.
You had gotten the call this morning from your mother, telling you that they had to take her to the vet today to put her down.
She hadn’t been moving very much, just laying in the same spot all day. She wasn’t speaking.
But when you asked your mom to put the phone next to Bailey, when she heard your voice she perked up, and started barking.
She had recognized you.
Through your tears you said goodbye, and told her that you loved her.
An hour ago you got the text that she was gone.
You tried to reach your friends, needing some support. But they weren’t getting back to you.
You were alone now.
“Y/N?” a voice said from the doorway.
You turned, tears still running down your face.
There stood your four friends, John, Alex, Laf, and Hercules.
They each held comfort things in their hands, pitying looks on their faces. That made you break down even harder.
Hercules came over and wrapped you in a hug, and the others joined.
They brought you inside and sat you on the couch, no words being spoken. They turned on a comedy movie to distract you.
A bowl of ice cream was handed to you as you snuggled up with them.
They stayed with you all night, listening to your old memories with Bailey. You missed her so much.
But in the end it would be hard, but with your friends here you knew that you could get through it.
