8. Do I Know You?
I had now been living in LA for 3 months and I have never been so happy. I have made some really good friends but I met a girl at the company on my first day called Poppy, I was so nervous about it and she calmed me down immediately making me feel so much better about everything. We met and just seemed to click, it was an amazing feeling way better than anything I'd ever had with Lilly. She's kind, caring, has a great sense of humour and is absolutely gorgeous. Everything was great.
Well not everything. Right now I had the worst hangover and looked like death. Me and Poppy had moved in together as it was easier and a lot less lonely, but we threw a party last night to celebrate her moving in and we got so drunk. The birds tweeting outside were making so much noise on purpose I swear, the clock ticking by sounded like it had been plugged into speakers to make it sound louder. I looked around me and realised I was on the sofa and poppy was passed out on some blankets by the table, I laughed quietly to myself. I looked at the time and groaned, 7:50am. Coffee, yes coffee will make this better. I need coffee. I decided quickly. I got up quietly and grabbed my 5SOS hoodie from Cardiff, i glanced at myself in the mirror, my make-up had smudged a bit and my hair was a little messy but overall i didn't look bad. I pulled the hoodie over myself to cover last nights clothes and went out. I walked up the road towards the nearby cafe, glancing around to see if anybody was looking at me, nobody was. I got into the coffee shop and there was only one guy in there, also wearing a hoodie and sunglasses, probably trying to disguise a hangover as well.
"Thanks." he said quietly and he quickly turned whilst on his phone and walked straight into me. The coffee cup lid immediately came off, spilling the scolding coffee all over my hoodie and me.
"What the fuck! Why weren't you looking where you were going?" I shouted at him, immediately wishing I hadn't when my headache got worse.
"Oh fuck, I am so so sorry, I'll buy you a knew hoodie if you want?" He said pleadingly, desperate to make it right. He turned his head to the hoodie and glanced at the safety pin logo and smiled. He finally looked at me properly and his face changed. "Wait do I know you?"
