23. Moving In With A Stranger ;)
( This is Jake, you will learn about him in a minute)
I was crying hard when I realized finally after many years that I have a friend to call. I quickly walked over to my landline and dialed Zayn's number.
"Zayn, I need you please come over and hurry." I said into the phone.
"Ok be there soon." He replied and hung up. Soon I heard a knock on the door and Zayn entered. "Ryan, what's wrong?"
"Everything is wrong, Zayn. My bully just died and my best friend is still going to the funeral even though she ruined my life! And now he went back home and I haven't been home in years because I can't afford shit!"
"Well if you want I have some money leftover from my job if you really want to go back I can pay for your trip."
"Zayn, I could never let you d-"
"Ryan, I want to, please?"
"If your sure?"
"Well than thank you!" I said and got up to hug him. "No one has ever done anything that nice for me."
"Well I don't know why your awesome!"
"Thanks, but I have to get packing. I promise that I'll make it up to you."
Once he left I immediately started to pack. I shoved random pairs of clothes , a toothbrush, a hairbrush, a pair of shoes, and went my way.
I walk outside and hailed a cab to go to the airport. When I got there I paid the driver, grabbed my things, and walked up to the lady at the desk.
"One ticket to Mullingar, Ireland please.", I asked politely. Once she handed me my ticket I went to go take my seat. I got on the plane and started to shove my bag in the luggage area. When I finally got my bag in I sat in my seat until the plane took off.
I started to look out the window and I zoned out. Suddenly I felt someone sit next to me. I broke out of my trance and turned to see a cute boy with brown hair looking at me. "Hi what's your name?" he asked me.
"Where are you from?"
"America and I can tell your from Ireland."
"Correct but what makes you want to go to Ireland?"
"I'm visiting family I didn't know I had so I'm gonna get an apartment near their house, because honestly I don't feel comfortable staying with people I dont know. Family or not."
"So where are you staying?"
"Oh shit! I forgot I have no place to stay!"
"What about with your parents?"
"Ummm I can't but I don't want to talk about why."
"Well if you really need a place to stay, you can come stay with me?"
"Umm well sorry to burst your bubble but I don't feel comfortable with staying with people I just met."
"Trust me I get it, but just saying were not strangers I know so much about you like your Irish and you live in London and that you have a dark history with your parents."
"Well it that case if you don't think I'll be a bother."
"Of course not I can tell your awesome."
"Were gonna be best friends!" I exclaimed and we talked the whole plane ride. When we got there he showed me his apartment and we unpack then I told him I have to go to a funeral and I will be back later.
