(Update 07-01-18: before starting, please skip to part 18 to read my latest note. This book is currently being rewritten because my writing in it is just terrible. You've been warned incase you decide to carry on reading. The first chapter of the new book will be posted soon. It'll have the same characters, but a different plot and (hopefully) better writing... <3.)

Quite the same

Hunter let out a sigh as she closed the door behind her with a thud. She put the keys to the apartment in one of the side pockets of her bag, not expecting to see them again anytime soon.

"You sure you got everything babe?" Her best friend, Ryan, questioned as he took the bag from her and slung it over his shoulder.

Hunter nodded, not making any eye contact as she followed Ryan to his car. She sat down in the passengers seat while Ryan put her bag in the trunk. He got in behind the wheel and buckled his seatbelt.

He looked out of the window for a second and sighed, "Are you sure you're making the ri-"

"I'm sure Ryan. Please, just get me away from here," Hunter cut him off, leaning her head against the window while she closed her eyes, trying her hardest not to cry.

Ryan looked at her and frowned. He hated seeing her like this, it made his heart break into a million pieces. He couldn't imagine what she was going through right now. Mostly because he didn't have a clue about what's going on.

Without any further hesitation, he hit the gas pedal and drove off to his apartment. He had a bad habit of driving faster than he should, but for the first time ever, Hunter didn't feel the need to make any remarks, all she wanted was to get to his apartment fast.

After twenty minutes of driving, they finally arrived at Ryan's apartment complex. Ryan grabbed her bag from the trunk and they both walked to his apartment in silence.

Ryan opened the door and let Hunter in first, following close behind her while he put her bag down, kicking off his shoes while Hunter did the same.

"Thank you so much for this Ryan," Hunter mumbled, still not able to make eye contact.

"Anything for you," he replied, "you want to tell me what happened?" He asked, realizing it might be a bit too soon to ask.

Hunter hesitated but nodded and walked over to Ryan's couch while he followed her. She sat down opposite from Ryan, hugging her knees close to her chest.

Ryan sat back patiently and waited for her to start.

"Well- you know how I told you about how strange Liam had been acting lately. And that work had been very stressful for him and he was afraid he might lose his job," she said.

Ryan nodded and placed his hand on her knee, tracing random patterns with his thumb.

"He started working more and more, and he barely had any time for me anymore. I actually confronted him about that and he seemed guilty. He promised to make it up to me and said he would have a special surprise for me for our anniversary," she stopped talking for a second, grabbing Ryan's hand to hold.

"Your anniversary.. That was today, right?" Ryan asked, sitting up straight.

"Yes," she nodded, "I actually went out to buy him a present this afternoon, since he was at work anyways. And after that, I went back home," she said and Ryan couldn't help but notice that her grip on his hand tightened, "but when I got inside..." She bit down on her bottom lip anxiously, she really didn't want to talk about it any further, but she knew Ryan wouldn't accept it if she'd left it like this.

"I-I noticed something was off. The pink sweatshirt hanging on the doorknob... It wasn't mine..," she trailed off and watched as Ryan slowly realized what she meant.

"He really had the fucking guts to cheat on you?!" Ryan stood up, heart raging with anger, "I'm gonna beat the shit out of him."

Hunter got up quickly and held him back by his arm. "No, you're only going to make it worse. It's okay, I broke up with him," Hunter said but she only got a glare back in return.

"Why does that ring on your finger tell me otherwise?" He snapped back.

Hunter was a little taken aback, "I.. I don't know Ryan. I think I still love him," she said, almost whispering, making Ryan feel guilty for snapping at her.

"I'm sorry," he said and pulled her in for a hug, "I wish I could do something to make it all better," he said. Hunter let out a sob and burried her face into the crook of his neck while he rubbed her back softly, placing a kiss on top of her head. They proceeded to stay like this for a little while, it seemed to calm Hunter down.

"Thank you for being the best friend ever," she said in between sobs.

Ryan smiled a little, "I know you'd do the sa-"

"Hey Dunn! Ready to get drunk?" They heard someone burst through the door.
Hunter's heart sped up a little, she quickly wiped the tears from her cheek and stood up straight.

"What the fuck Bam, never heard of knocking?" Ryan replied as both he and Hunter faced the guy who just barged in, Bam Margera.

"Jeez, who pissed in your drink Dunn?" Bam asked, walking over and letting his body fall backwards on the couch with his eyes closed, making himself comfortable.

"Oh shit, were you two about to go down on each other?" Bam questioned after a short moment of silence before he burst into laughter.

"Yeah, I can't deal with this shit right now," Hunter said, turning to face Ryan. He nodded and pulled her in for another quick hug.

"Please don't tell him," Hunter whispered in his ear before she pulled away from him again.

"Good night," Hunter said, making her way over to the guest bedroom.

"Good night," Ryan called after her.

"Sweet dreams," she could hear Bam say right after she closed the door. The last thing she heard that night was his voice as he fell into yet another laughing fit.
