"If you love me let me go. Cause the words are knives that often leave scars, the fear of falling apart. Truth me told I never was yours, the fear that fear of falling apart"

I sang along with the Panic at The Disco lyrics of This is Gospel as I flipped through the pages of Vogue Magazine. I finally paused my terrible voice hearing my phone ring next to me. I laughed to myself at Allison's contact picture. It was a selfie of her with a double chin and going cross eyed. My favorite picture of all time.

"Hello?" I said into my phone.

"Hey, Kira and I went shopping and don't want to go home yet. Can we come over?"

"Yeah I'm not doing anything. I thought you had plans with Scott today?"

"Yeah I did but apparently his buddy from when he lived in Oregon is moving in today and he wanted to visit him and help him get situated."

"Okay well I'm in my room, let yourselves in."

"We always do."

I hung up the phone and continued in my magazine. Flipping through the pages until they ran out, I decided to continue on the book I was reading. Sooner than later, Allison barged in with Kira right behind her, both of them tumbling down on my bed making me bounce a bit.

"Wow how clichè. A teenage girl reading The Fault in Our Stars in her Tumblr inspired bedroom." Allison said as I rolled my eyes. She grabbed my book and held it higher than I could reach, considering she was taller than me. Hell, everyone was taller than me.

"What do you want?" I groaned glaring playfully at the brunette with a smug smile.

"I want you to stop reading for once in your life and be social!" She said throwing her hands in the air, making Kira laugh.

"Reading is good for you! Plus that book got me sucked in further than I thought I could go. Give it back." I said as I lunged at her. She laughed as I fell making her go backwards. Kira sat there on her phone, probably texting Malia.

"No, you need to get out there. It's been 2 months since Aiden left for Los Angeles, you need to shop and do makeup and put on clothes that aren't yoga pants." I rolled my eyes and yanked the book out of Allison's arms.

"I'm ready to get back out there I just haven't found anyone suitable for me yet." I said as I returned to my book. A loud beeping noise distracted me slightly as I tried to continue reading.

"What's that noise?" Allison asks as the beeping echoes through my bedroom. She rushes over to the window with Kira coming fast behind her. I didn't bother getting up, mainly because I was comfortable and not really interested.

"It's a moving truck, wait someone's coming out!" Kira exclaims and Allison jumped up and down. I laughed at their excitement and turned to the next page.
