Getting up this morning was honestly not something I wanted to do, and I really never did. When I had gotten a text from Nicole though telling me that she wanted to meet up at the coffee shop for breakfast if I could made getting up this early a bit more bearable. I was already pretty much ready for the day by the time that she had texted, so I answered her telling her that I would be there soon.
She didn’t respond until about five or ten minutes later telling me to hurry and get there as fast as I could because she had something that she wanted to tell me. I wasn’t sure how to take that since she never said if what she had to tell me was good or bad or if it even affected or involved me or not. I figured that either way I should probably hurry up and get to the coffee shop to meet up with her.
When I was approaching the coffee shop a couple minutes later, I saw Nicole standing outside and the second she saw me, she walked right over to me.
“Hey,” I said and leaned down to kiss her but I stopped when she had grabbed my hand and pulled me with her into the coffee shop.
When we got inside, the table that we usually sat at was already taken and the only other empty table we could find was one that was more in the back so we went to sit there. The coffee shop was always pretty crowded in the morning for breakfast so if you wanted to sit at a certain table you had to get here earlier than we did.
“So what was it that you wanted to tell me?” I asked her once we had sat down.
“Becca actually talked to me today,” she informed me.
I wasn’t really sure what I had been expecting her to have to say to me, but I had at least been hoping it would’ve been more exciting than what she ended up telling me. I just didn’t get what she found so exciting about her friend talking to her.
Okay I guess I could see what made Nicole happy about Becca talking to her, I just didn’t really want her to be happy about it or really care that she talked to her. That probably sounded bad, I did like when she was happy, I just didn’t want her to care about this in particular.
I was hoping that she had been beginning to realize that her friends probably weren’t the greatest friends to her, especially Christina.
I had been giving Nicole hints over the past few days that I wasn’t exactly fond of her friends, and when she had started to tell me that she wanted to stop talking about them, I had begun to believe that she had wanted to stop talking about them because she was sick of them or something, I don’t know.
I really just had to let her make her own decisions in this situation because I wasn’t in their dorm; I didn’t know that all was going on between them and this whole conflict.
“So is that a good thing?” I asked, finally giving a response to what she had said.
I wanted to confirm my thoughts that she had meant it as a good thing but still give myself the small chance that maybe she was annoyed by Becca or something and didn’t want her talking to her.
“Yeah, I think so. It caught me a bit off guard when she came out of the dorm to talk to me,” Nicole said.
“What did she say to you?” I asked.
“She was just asking me how I was and everything, and then she told me that she had gotten over all this and she kind of missed hanging out with me,” she explained to me.
“Oh, so are things okay between you two now?” I asked her, not sure if I really cared to hear the answer at this point.
“I guess it’s a bit better, but nothing is really going to change. She hinted that she wanted everything to be okay with us again, but I know that I’m never going to get to hang out with her. She’s so obsessed with fitting in sometimes and she has to go along with the majority so naturally when I’m around she going to act how Christina and Liz are acting right now and its damn annoying,” she complained and I felt a wave of relief wash over me.
This just made me dislike Becca even more and I was completely fine with Nicole having hesitant feelings about rebuilding her friendship with her.
“She did tell me something a bit interesting that I had wanted to tell you,” Nicole told me and began to become a bit worried again.
“Don’t worry it’s not anything bad, it’s quite funny actually,” Nicole told me, sensing my uneasy look.
“Okay so apparently Christina is the most pissed about us being together because according to Becca, she really liked you,” Nicole told me, again not saying anything that I would’ve expected her to say.
“Are you serious?” I asked, not quite sure how to take this information.
“Yeah, the one who was giving me the most grief about dating you was the one who actually liked you,” Nicole said with a laugh.
“Since when did she like me? I hardly know her,”
“Apparently she was always attracted to you but after you worked on an in class assignment together she began to like you even more,” Nicole told me.
I had noticed Christina acting overly flirty when we had been working on that project, but I didn’t think anything of it, I just assumed it was her personality. At this point, seeing a smile on Nicole’s faced as she had laughed at the whole thing, I couldn’t help but let out a few laughs along with her.
We spent the rest of the time before classes started talking about the irony of this whole thing and how ridiculous all of this was.
