OMG i really hope this book isn't too shitty.

Lauren's POV

After one last embrace, I gave my best friend of many years a sad smile.

"I guess this is goodbye. I'll make sure to Skype you when I reach my apartment."

I looked up at Zayn, whose eyes were filled with tears. I reached for his hand, trying to comfort him while restraining the tears from escaping my own eyes.

"Yeah... I guess so...", he replied, while looking else where, avoiding eye contact with me.

"Passengers of flight A0106 may start to board the plane." The airport staff said over the intercom.

Upon hearing that, I gave Zayn one last tight hug before proceeding to the check-in counter. I didn't look back once because I didn't want to see Zayn all upset because it would make me more upset than I was.

I was going to leave someone whom I spent most of my life in Miami with. It sure was going to be difficult to accept it but sadly, that's how reality works.

Both of us have been best friends since we were 10 and were inseparable ever since. We would eat lunch together, do homework together and even have a movie marathon every Friday till the next morning.

Also, we went to prom together as friends because we weren't dating and had no one to bring. Recently, I saved enough money and applied into a university in England and got accepted whereas Zayn wasn't willing to move away and decided to apply for a good university in Miami despite being one of the top students in the whole cohort back in college.

Well that was the difference between Zayn and I. I was the one who was adventurous and loved to take risks while Zayn never went beyond his comfort zone.

While walking to the plane, 'I Hate This Part' by Pussycat Dolls started playing on my iPod. What a coincidence. It just made my mood more gloomy.

As I sat down at my seat, which was a window seat, I started thinking about the choice I made.

Yes, the choice I made caused me to be distant from my best friend but I promised my late mother that I will go to England for university and nothing should come in my way and make me break that promise.

My mother was an alumni of the university. She was just like me, she had to move from Miami to study. So now, I am going to be staying in her former apartment. Apart from going to England to study, I wanted to try to write novels.

That was another aspiration I had which not many people knew. My mother used to tell me that England was a perfect place to pursue my dreams of being an author.

During the plane ride, I just couldn't sleep. I kept on reminiscing about all the things me and Zayn did together. We actually did most of the things together.

And now, I was going to do most of the things myself. I'm sure gonna miss Zayn...
