Preston's P.O.V.

Tonight, the apple falls in time
We'll sing along with Auld Lang Syne
And throw confetti high up into space
Tomorrow morning when we wake
This town will be a different place
And the past will wash away like coffee stains

Rob kicked his feet back and forth, his eyes on the television as we waited for the clock to tick over to midnight and the new year to begin. Rob was ecstatic, he loved New Year's celebrations and anything to do with a new year if I was being honest because it was an excuse to watch fireworks.

He loved fireworks, he loved anything brightly coloured too which I suppose is why he was often called the Flower King because of how much he loved the brightly coloured parts of nature.

I didn't mind fireworks, I didn't like the noise very much but I just didn't see what the hype was around them. They were just a colourful explosions in the sky that terrified both me and my cat and it also meant that I couldn't sleep, because I generally didn't like staying up late.

We could be kings of the world
On top of the nation
It's a celebration of the moments to come
The city's on fire
We're holding up lighters
Raising them higher and we've only begun

"You excited Preston?" I nodded, mostly for his sake because I really wasn't that excited. I was exhausted and I wanted to sleep, but Rob was going back home in a few days and I wanted to spend more time with him.

I was sad at the thought of him going home. Then it would just be me and my cat in the house like always and it got lonely by myself, especially when there was no one to talk to at 3am when I was having an existential crisis.

Rob and I often found ourselves up at God awful times of the morning so we talked together about anything we could think of. We told each other dark secrets over the bed sheets, secrets that no one else should ever know about us.

Take me all the way (oh)
Hear me when I say (yeah)
Let's kiss the past away
Like New Year's Day
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
It's time to celebrate
Like New Year's Day

The clock was only two minutes from midnight when I came back around to the real world. Rob was bouncing up and down on the couch now, looking between me and screen, grinning like an overexcited toddler who had just been given ice cream.

"Two minutes to go! Yay!!!" I just grinned at him, a strained and fake smile, and leaned my head on my arm.

We'll play it back in slow rewind
And laugh about the cold and bitter nights
We'll brood our way on maps of stars
Hold on tight to fragile hearts
And keep our friends forever by our side

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4-

The television counted down, Rob counting with it and I reluctantly joined in, really only mouthing the words.

3, 2, 1!!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

"Happy new year Preston!" Rob cried, leaning over and hugging me tightly.

"Happy new year Rob!" I said back, trying not to sound flat or uninterested. He didn't seem to notice because as soon as the fireworks started to bang outside he stood up, dragging on my hand and pulling me outside.
