John Smith gives his best friend a present before he leaves for Uni, creating an odd reaction in her.
In fulfillment for @doctorroseprompts prompt: “I’ve been in love with you forever and in a fit of excitement/emotion/drunkenness I just kissed you and now I’m afraid about what will happen”
In hindsight, the night before John went to Uni was a great night for a party, but not a great night for Rose to drink for the first time.
She wasn’t smashed, per say, but she was uninhibited. Enough that she had cried to Shareen in the bathroom of the club because her best friend was leaving her all alone in London when she still had another year of high school left to get through.
Shareen just rolled her eyes but didn’t say anything. She knew nothing would keep John from seeing Rose. He’d only come back and visit if he missed her (which he would).
