Walking around Julie's house trying to find something to eat might be the most difficult thing someone might can endure. They're always re-arranging things, putting stuff in weird places, and just making all of this Addison proof. 

Sighing, I bend down looking through a few of the cabinets that hopefully something might catch my eye or at least could get me on the right track. Frustrating enough, I finally find a bowl and decide on the easiest thing I can make and possibly find- Cereal. Walking over to the pantry I find a unopened box of cinnamon toast crunch. 

Hastily I put every thing on the counter top and walk over to the fridge to retrieve the milk. Bending down, I hear foot steps coming towards me. I send a quick prayer that Ms. Roman has tile flooring and I can hear foot steps coming along.

Looking above the fridge door, I see Julie finally joining me.

"Got tired of Instagram, huh?"

"Nah, I'm just really starving." Julie says as she rubs her belly, pouting as if she hasn't eaten in 10 days.

"Yeah, okay." "Why do you guys have to re-arrange everything? You do it every time before I come over here. It's like, Addison proof. You know I like my food! Why keep it from me!" I sound desperate, and try to hide all my laughter from her.

She gives me a weird look and burst into laughter, "Maybe I should let my mom know that we need to quit being such a bully to you."

"Yeah, that would be great." I roll my eyes but give a soft laugh to my best friend.


We are both sitting at the counters on the bar stools, eating cereal and having basic here and there conversations. Should I bring up something that has been on my mind too? That has been eating me inside? Maybe even more than the thought of college? Hm... Maybe not that much, but it's surely up there.

"How do you feel about Tyler?" I blurt out even though she was mindlessly speaking about the new album of some band, I didn't catch.

"Tyler? Really, Addison? You're still caught up on him?" She sighs an gauges my reaction. 

My reaction wasn't very pleasant and I guess she could tell because she quickly re thinks of something and opens her mouth to talk but I quickly interrupt.

"I know, man. I know. You just don't understand though.. He drives me crazy." Literally, I think to myself. He has so much effect on me and has been a big part of my life for a few months now. Not every thing has been peaches, maybe far from that. Not just maybe... definitely. We haven't made things official and I sometimes doubt we ever will. I contemplate the battle in my head, 'Should I just be friends with benefits or tell him I need a real relationship.' 

"Addison, I just don't think he's good enough for you." Damn, she snapped me out of my thoughts. I'm glad for it to, I don't think I can handle all of this. Specially at this time of morning.

"Alright, ok. I get you. He's no good for me." Is he? Probably not, but who stops a teenager when they're on the hunt to find young love?
