If someone would have told me that the end of the year would have ended so badly for me, I would have laughed in their face. But, the sad thing is, they would have been right.
I was out on the patio looking up at the stars when I heard something moving around in the house. At first I didn't think anything of it, but then I remembered that Annabell was working late. I turned around and there was this masked guy going through my things. I watched as he removed the television from the living room.
Thinking fast I called the police from my cell phone. They arrived shortly after, but the guy's partner had already gotten away with the T.V. Darn it! Now I have to replace it! We also need to invest in a security system.
But things went from bad to worse. The flu has really hit Riverdale hard this year and everyone is sick. Me and Annabell included. But we press forward working, playing, and living our lives. Well it soon caught up to one of us.
I wasn't home when it happened, I was at work. But I guess the flu was just too much for my roommate. From what the neighbors told me, she collapsed on the front lawn after returning home from work. 911 was called and they transported her to the hospital, were she never woke up.
I was crushed. My best friend was dead. This was the first death I even had to deal with. I had no idea what to do. I called Annabell's parents, so they could come over and collect her remains.
Death really does make you step back and look at your life. She was so young, only 22 years old. And now she's gone. *sniff*
I was so sad, so that's what possessed me to call up Rupert. He was saddened by the news of Annabell. He had liked her too. He rushed right over.
He hugged me, telling me that everything would be alright. He and his brother, Amos, had lost both of their parents at a young age. Rupert said that time heals all wounds. And I guess he's right. But only time will tell.
I have no idea what had gotten into me. But we some how ended up in my bedroom. But once my clothes came off my sense returned and I told Rupert that now was not the time that I wanted to have sex with him, or any man for that matter.
Surprisingly he was cool with my rejecting him. We hugged and he said goodbye.
Now I'm out of a best friend and a roommate. I have no idea what I'm going to do.
