Mini-flashback to when the reader met Tom.
“Look, I understand that this adjustment has been difficult for you, but you can’t continue to lock yourself up in this room! I know that failing your most recent exam really affected your mood, but you can’t continue to let this affect your health, Y/N.”
“You’re right… I know. It’s just – it’s just difficult because I studied so hard for this… and I don’t want to fail again…”
“Sweetheart… I get it – I do – but you can’t stay holed up in here! Let’s go dancing or shopping or whatever you want,” your roommate continued. She hated seeing you bummed out, but she knew that what you needed was to get out for a bit, even if it meant facing some cold weather.
“I don’t know…” you replied. “I’m not feeling it.”
“And that’s exactly why this is the best idea ever. We’ll just go out for an hour – tops – and come back and catch up on all the shitty tv you want.”
“…Alright… But one hour only! It’s too cold outside to do anything outside for too long,” you conceded. And you honestly weren’t that thrown off – your roommate had always managed to help you get out of your head and you definitely appreciated them for it.
“So where are going?,” you obviously also wanted some idea of what to prepare yourself for.
“We’ll figure it out as we go along, yeah?”
