"Lexi you coming?"

"One second." I said as I gazed into GameStop. "Brittany look! They have Halo 4!"

"Ughh, what is it with you and your video games?." Brittany said.

"If you actually tried playing X-box you'd find it really fun."

"Hunny I have tried way too many times and failed miserably. Trust me it's not that fun losing all the time." She laughed. "Come on, I heard there's a sale at Forever 21!"

"You had me at sale." I laughed. "Can we come back later though? I heard number 4 has way cooler graphics." I asked as I followed her through the crowded mall.

"Fineee." She sighed.

"Don't get too excited." I laughed.

   Brittany is my best friend. We have known each other since first grade til now, which if you ask me is a little odd considering we are almost complete opposites most of the time. We do agree on a lot of things though. We are both 19 and have completed high school, so we decided to move to London together in about a week for college next year.

   We came to the mall today to do some "school shopping", but I guess I got a little distracted. I've been wanting Halo 4 ever since it came out, I've just been too busy to get it. I love playing video games, mostly Xbox. I don't know why but they always fascinate me. Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those people who stay up all day and night playing them. No, It's just something I like to do when I'm bored. I do get very excited when I see a new game out though.

"How about this?" Brittany asked while holding up a dress for me to see.

"Cute." I smiled. "You think James would like it? I think pink if his favorite color on you." I laughed.

Her smile faded. "About James..."

I frowned. "No. don't tell me. Did you guys... "

"No. We would never break-up." She replied.

I smiled again. "Good cause you guys are a cute couple. I would die if you did." I giggled. She still looked upset.

"What is it Britt?" I asked worriedly.

"James... James said that he would have to break up with me... if I moved to London with you. And I don't think I want us to break up. I'm really sorry."

"What? What about long distance? You could always visit him and Vice Versa. Britt please don't bail on London, I've already signed the lease for the apartment. I can't live there by myself, I hate being alone. What if some creeps breaks in! What if I get gang-banged! Then I'll probably catch some shitty disease! Then nobody will love me! Then I'll grow old and alone for the rest of my life only accompanied by my 18 cats all named after food!" I panted.

"You done?" Brittany laughed.

"Yeah. But seriously I can't do this without my best friend." I replied.

"I know, and I really am truly sorry, but like you said I could always visit. I'll stay with you the first two nights if you want. The only reason I'm staying is because James and I have been dating for two years now and it's getting pretty serious. I know our friendship is strong, I have faith in it.  I will always be here for you, just like you will for me. I'm sorry, are you mad at me?" She said as she looked down at the floor.

"I could never stay mad at you." I said as I embraced her in a hug. "And I would love it if you stayed the fist couple nights." I said as stepped back from the hug.

"Thanks." She smiled.

"On one condition." I added.

"Uh-Oh. What now?" She said.

"You have to promise to Skype, text, or call me every once in awhile, and visit whenever you can." I smiled.

"Deal." She laughed. "Now what about this dress?"

"Even cuter. Hey you know what would be fun? Lets go take funny pictures on the the iPads at the Apple store like we used to."

"I'm up for it." She laughed placing the dress back on the rack.
