Expect the Unexpected

Leah Higgins thought she found her soul mate, the love of her life, until one day things fell apart completely. Leah and her best friend Jasmine head out for a night on the town in Atlanta but things suddenly go from great to perfect when an unexpected surprise occurs. Expect the Unexpected...


9. Things change, and people move on.


Typical Friday night. By myself, in my apartment in the city. I worked late tonight so I have nothing to do. Fun. Jasmine was downtown at her friend's dorm. We've honestly drifted apart, & I hate it. We were such amazing friends, she's the best friend I've ever had. But I guess things change. We were so close last summer. Especially when we met them. We went to different colleges now, had different jobs, & just had different paths for our lives. I'm studying biology as my major at my university & Jasmine is studying occupational therapy at a college in our hometown about an hour away. Another reason we're drifting. Ugh. I'm usually alone all the time now, it really sucks. It leaves a lot of time for thinking, a bit too much. Most of the time I'm thinking about Zayn. I hate how things ended between us. We ended up dating for a while, but with the contrast of our lives it just wasn't possible to stay a couple. He's texted me a million times, and called me even more. I can't get myself to answer, only because I don't want to deal with any more hurt. I can't take anymore hurt. He broke my heart. He could have made it work if he really wanted to, I mean celebrities do it all the time. There had to be another reason he didn't want to be back together. Anyways, there were more important things for me to concentrate on like maintaining great grades at school & keeping my job to pay for my tuition somewhat. I guess when my emotions go wild, I put my all into other things to distract myself. I've always been the kind of girl who hates being emotional, & tries to hide it. I've been hurt so many times in my life, whether it be by guys, my family, and people in general. I have no time, patience, or room for any more heartache. My aunt once gave me some great advice. She told me to eliminate causes of hurt from my life & I'll find true happiness, no matter what it takes. I listened for once, & I've never been better. I distanced myself from my family of assholes, and put my everything into improving my life. I had horrible grades in highschool and had no intention of doing anything challenging with my life. But I decided that I deserve better, especially after what happened with Zayn. He & Perrie actually got back together a few months ago. Did it bother me? Of course. What was I gonna do about it? Absolutely nothing. Because shit happens, I'm used to it. He's just another memory to me now. How he got back with her, I have no idea. You would think how she treated him and all the pain she caused him would make him stay away, but whatever. It's not my problem anymore. 

I pulled the blanket over myself as I laid on my couch. I grabbed the remote and with a bowl of popcorn in my lap and nothing good on tv, I flipped through the channels & tossed piece after piece of popcorn into my mouth. 

Suddenly I heard a banging on my door. I jumped up and realized I had drifted off to sleep. I glanced at my phone. "3:16am" it read. What the hell? "Who is it?" I called out. "Open up Leah" I heard a familiar voice say. It can't be... I opened the door slightly and it slammed open into me. There he was, in my doorway, making his way to my couch in an uneven path with him falling all over the place. He was clearly drunk. "What are you doing here?..." I asked, annoyed. My hurt turned to anger. How dare he just show up on my doorstep months after leaving me. He destroyed my heart, and this just ripped open the wounds. Tears began rushing down my flushed cheeks. "What. are. you. doing. here." I repeated myself. He wouldn't answer me, he just sat there, caught in his drunkeness. All the memories, all the pain, it all came flooding back. I hated him for doing this to me. I began to go crazy inside. I rushed up to him, and pushed his chest violently, demanding an answer. "I... I love you Le." he mumbled. "Shut up, you need to leave. You're at the wrong girl's apartment, you've clearly made a mistake." I spat. I motioned towards the door. He looked away from me and down at the grown with his sparkly brown eyes. I felt horrible, but he was playing with my emotions. I couldn't take this, not now. I just wanted to run up to him and embrace him into a never-ending hug & hold him tight forever. I missed him too, & his absence tortured me. But he's not mine anymore. He's with her again.
