Chloe’s POV

I felt my bed shaking, waking me up in the night. I opened my eyes and looked at the culprit sitting beside me, a smile on his face.

“Wake up sleepy head.” he said.

When I opened my eyes, I hoped that everything that happened was just a nightmare and in reality we’re still together. But when I realized that the person waking me up is not the person who I wanted it to be. I knew that it was over. I remembered it was real.

“Get up.” he said, pulling the blanket away from me.

“Why? It’s not morning yet Ed. What are you doing?” I complained.

“I’m only here for the weekend Chloe, I don’t want to spend it with you sulking around your room; watching movies, eating comfort foods and listening to sappy break up songs. Have you not seen me today? I gained weight since I last visited. ” he reasoned.

“That’s your problem not mine.” I shrugged, turning to the other side of the bed and covering my face with a pillow.

“And… your Mum called me to cheer you up; I’m obviously not doing a good job about it.”

I ignored him.

“Come on!” he took the pillow away from me. “It’s a Friday night Chloe!”

I continued to ignore him, eventually he’ll give up.

“Don’t you want to get wasted for one night and forget about everything?”

What he said, appealed to me. A night out of town sounds good right now; I could socialize and have fun. Live at the moment and forget about everything.

“You know you want too…” he teased.

“Fine!” I said. “We’re going out.”

“Yes!” he said.

An hour later, we’re striding down the stairs, all dressed up and ready to take on the world. To my surprise, the girls; Jessica, Andy and Erica is sitting in our living room, all dressed up as well. The front door opened and in came Josh.

“You guys ready?” he asked. “Hi Chloe.” He awkwardly greeted me.

“You guys look great!” Mum said.

“I know.” Ed agreed, smiling.

“What are you guys doing here?” I asked them, confused. I thought it was just me and Ed.

“We’re coming with you, obviously.” Jessica said.

I looked at Ed and gave him a questioning look.

He laughed at me.

“You didn’t think it would be only us didn’t you? That would be boring.”

 “Ed called me… and well, I called them.” Andy said a half smile on her face.

I don’t know how to react in this situation, I’ve shut them down for the whole week, and here they are, standing in our living room, acting like nothing has happened. I guess, this is a good thing.

“Are we going out or what?” Josh asked.

All eyes were on me, waiting for me to speak. For the first time in days, I finally feel alive. I feel like myself again. Not some lonely, heartbroken girl.

“Hell yeah!” I yelled.

Just as when I’m about to go out the door, I felt a hand in my arm and when I turned around, I saw my Mum looking at me. She looks happy, the worry is gone.
