“Just put it right there,” you direct the movers where
you want your couch settle. You eye their movements as they place the couch
down carefully. You head back out to the U-Haul that’s filled with furniture
and boxes you couldn’t fit in your truck.
It takes several hours to unload everything from the
U-Haul. The moment you’re done you tip the movers and thank them for their
service. You watch them drive off before heading back into your new home.
You’re finally on your own. You have always been on
your own but to actually have your own space and freedom, no roommate around.
Not that you didn’t enjoy having your best friend and her girlfriend around.
You knew it was only a matter of time before they move forward; you needing to
respect their relationship and be out on your own.
Lexa is always going to be your best friend, but
Clarke is her future now. And well…you need to find your future.
You sigh as you stare at the boxes you haven’t opened
that are still sitting in your living room floor. You decide to put things away
after you eat something. You grab your jacket and keys, locking the door behind
You drive to a small café, not really in the mood for
something heavy. You have a long night ahead so you grab something light. The
sun is slowly setting and tomorrow you’re going grocery shopping.
You park your truck once you find a local café. Before
you get out, you check your phone for messages mostly from Lexa checking to see
if you’re still alive. Once that’s done you make your way to the café.
As you open the café door two women exit. You hold the
door open as they step out. You hear one of them mumble thank you. You reply you’re
welcome as you look at the person that said it. She softly smiles at you
before you disappear into the café.
You head back home after purchasing a grande coffee
and turkey sandwich. You know once you get home you need to unpack the
kitchenware first. You seriously need your coffee machine to start your day
tomorrow. If you don’t you’ll make it a habit of buying coffee day and night at
the same café.
You throw your keys on the stand by the front door as
you walk in. You head to the kitchen to start unpacking. Before you do you play
music from your phone to keep you going plus you enjoy the company.
It takes you an hour and half to get the kitchen
together. Unpacking was the easiest thing however trying to figure out where
you wanted everything placed was tricky. You’re off to the living room to get
it together as well. You check the time as you enter the room and you see it’s
already pass seven. You have a few hours before you call it a night.
You actually have a whole week to get settle into your
new home. However you don’t want to spend the whole week unpacking, you
actually want to get out of the house and learn your surroundings. So you start
unpacking boxes for the living room. You’ll spend tomorrow unpacking your
bedroom and the two spare rooms. You’re just glad you have a home with a
By the time you call it a night the living room,
dining room, and kitchen are all done, all you have left tomorrow is your
bedroom and the spare rooms. It’s late you want to shower at the same time
you’re too exhausted. You moved everything in one day by yourself along with
the movers. Lexa wanted to help but you know she has a tight schedule so you
promised her you’ll have dinner with her and Clarke once you’re settle.
You head to your room to grab a change of clothes then
to the bathroom to take a cool shower. You sigh as you stand under the water
and let it soak your body. It definitely does feel good against your skin.
After a much needed shower you blow dry your hair. You
grab a blanket and make your way to the living room. You’ll be spending the
night on the couch until you get your room together. You use a throw pillow to
rest your head. You play a relaxing set on your phone in a low volume soaking
in the sound of soft music playing as sleep calls you. It helps calm your mind
and relaxes you into a peaceful slumber.
You wake up the next morning much more relaxed. And as
much as you have your coffeemaker set up you completely forgot you don’t have
any groceries. I guess another trip to
the cafe is in works you mumble.
You find yourself in line at the same café. You check
your messages as you wait your turn. You see Lexa replied to your message last
night so you text her back. Before you know it you’re ordering a venti cup of
coffee, a breakfast sandwich, and a muffin.
Once your order is complete you take it and find a
table to eat your sandwich. You make your way to a table you spot at the corner
of a window. As you’re about to sit someone bumps into you causing you to spill
a bit of coffee on yourself. You groan as you pad the area from coffee stain.
“I’m so sorry,” you hear a soft voice say
“Dammit,” you mumble
When you look up you see it’s the woman from yesterday
and she’s sporting an apologetic look.
She has medium length dirty blonde hair and honey
eyes. She’s wearing jeans that curve her waist, a black top with a jean jacket
that stops at her torso, and boots that cover her jeans.
“Are you okay?” she asks
You were so lost in checking her out that you didn’t
even feel her hand on your forearm. It’s warm and soft and she’s looking directly
You blink your thoughts away and nod. You go back to
dabbing the wet spot.
“Yeah, I’m fine,” you say
“Are you sure?” she tilts her head to catch your eyes
You finally look her in the eyes.
“I’ll live,” you say
You watch as she releases a breath. You slightly frown
wondering why she would have to hold her breathe, it’s not like you burned
“Let me buy you a cup of coffee,” she offers
As much as you appreciate the gratitude your cup is
You tilt your cup at her as you say “thanks but I
still have a full cup”
She gently smiles at you and nods
“Bummer but if I ever run into you again I’ll be sure
to buy you a cup” she says before leaving
You don’t know if you’ll ever run into here again. I
mean what were your odds of running into her yesterday and today. Well you didn’t
quite run into her yesterday, you just held the door while she and another
person passed through. You know it’s her, you’ll never forget a beauty like
So when she says the word again, you really hope you do run into her again. You will totally
take that coffee offer.
