That was what your best friend had decided you needed.
“Y/B/F/N,” you said as you absentmindedly rifled through a pile of clothes, “I love shopping, but I don’t know if that’s going to help me get over being cheated on.”
She rolled her eyes, “There is nothing a whole new outfit can’t fix.”
“Oh of course. I’m so sorry, how could I possibly forget that?” You sarcastically said. She smacked your arm and you laughed. Maybe shopping alone wouldn’t help you get over your heartbreak, but hanging out with your best friend would definitely keep your mind off of it.
She turned to you, “Is there anything specific you need?”
“A new bra.”
“What happened to the one you just got?” She asked.
“Do you think this is a good color?”
Tom turned to Harrison, who was holding up a red t-shirt. He gave him a look and turned away.
Harrison sighed, “Whats up, mate? You’ve been moody all day. If that’s what happens when you get laid then no wonder you’re so lonely.”
“Shut up,” Tom mumbled before hitting him, “I’m mourning.”
Harrison snorted, “What could you possibly be mourning?”
“I didn’t get her name, Harrison! I’m never going to see her again!” Tom threw his hands in the air before dramatically collapsing onto a chair in the store.
“Wow was the sex that good?”
Tom glared at his best friend.
“What! It’s not like you held a conversation with the girl,” Harrison said, picking up another shirt and holding it to his body. “How’s this color?”
Shooting up, Tom briskly walked over to his friend.
“Could you please try to take this seriously?” He pleaded. Harrison sighed.
“Okay, this girl is crazy beautiful,” Tom started, his face lighting up. “Also I’m pretty sure we talked before I got drunk and forgot everything. And I’m pretty sure I enjoyed it.”
“That’s it?” Harrison said raising his eyebrows.
They paused for a moment thinking.
“I’m never gonna see her again, am I mate?” Tom asked, disappointed.
The two walked out into the main part of the mall, their faces partially hidden by sunglasses.
They quietly ambled with no apparent destination. Tom was quiet, trying to remember whatever he could about the mysterious girl who had suddenly crashed into his life before leaving just as quickly. Harrison was quiet too, sensing that his friend needed some time.
A loud noise and laughing suddenly caught their attention. Tom turned to see two girls. One of them, was laughing at the other, who had knocked over a display and was currently sitting on the ground.
“Stop laughing at me!” The girl on the ground whined, her hands covering her face. “You know I’m clumsy!”
Laughing a little, Tom nudged Harrison, about to say something. Just then the girl on the ground finally uncovered her face. Tom froze.
“Holy shit, Harrison, that’s her.”
