Chapter 1

Liz's p.o.v.

The room was filled with bright sunlight. As much as I loved my new bedroom for the year I also hated the fact that it got too much sunlight in the mornings.

In this case, I did what all girls would do. I took those pillow beside me and stuffed it over my face.

The universe seemed to hate my presence, because in no time the alarm clock started ringing

9:25am.

I sighed and got off the bed and directly went to take a shower.

My first class was at 10. I had about 30 minutes to get ready. I took my favourite black shorts and the white crop top and my denim jacket over it. I left my hair loose. I added some mascara and eyeliner and clear lip gloss. I wasn't a fan of makeup hence I don't wake-up at 5 o clock in the morning to look a beauty queen throughout the day.

My room filled with the first few bars of Just Give Me A Reason by Pink. Guess what? My phone is ringing and I know who it is and as much as I like her I don't wanna deal with her blabbering in the morning. But as all best friends do, she'll eat me up alive if I don't pick up.

I went to my dresser to see the caller ID. Yep. 100 marks to Liz for absolutely correct guessing. The ID read

"Alicia"

I picked up the phone

“HEY!!!! COME ON DONT TELL ME YOUR STILL ASLEEP. COME OUT OF YOUR FUCKING ROOM IMMEDIATELY ITS THE FIRST DAY OF THE LAST YEAR IN OUR COLLEGE. HAS YOU ROOMMATE ARRIVED?? CAUSE LAST TIME I CALLED YOU YOU SAID HE HASN'T. PETER GIFTED ME A BUNCH OF ROSES IN THE MORNING. OMG HE IS SOO DAMN SWEET AND IVE GOT A LOTS TO TELL YOU SO PLEASE GET OUT OF YOUR FUCKING ROOM OR ELSE I AM GONNA BREAK IN-”

“Alicia, I'll be out, the sooner you keep the phone”

She immediately hung up. I knew she'd do that. She's Alicia Jones after all she is the sweetest, bubbliest, cutest and the most positive person in our friendgroup. Our friend group consists of three people normally me, Luke and Sia. All of us are single except Sia who is dating Peter who is cheating on her with Jennifer. I guess you are thinking that if I know that he is cheating then why haven't I told her yet? Well I have it's just the fact that she trusts him more than she trusts me cause she's been with him for 4 freaking years while we've been besties for 3 years. And Peter being Peter is doing a good job hiding the fact. On the other hand I have Luke who has been crushing on Alicia for 2 years and hasn't yet told her cause she's taken.

Seriously, I feel bad for Luke

And if your wondering about my love life, then know that I'm done with trusting people and getting my heart broken and hence I. Am. Not. Interested. In. Dating. Anyone. At least. Not. In. This. College.

I grabbed a toast and peeped to the other room the person still hasn't come. Well doesn't he/she have a class? whatever, none of my business.

I opened the door and stepped outside expecting to be greeted by a gush of wind like in those movies but apparently I wasn't lucky. Instead I was greeted by Jennifer and Peter heavily making out. GROSS. I thought of making a remark but instead I got a better idea. I knew that they weren't gonna stop anytime soon so I rushed down stairs and as expected I saw Alicia and Luke waiting for me.

“Liz I missed y-”

“shut the fuck up and follow me quietly”

One of the greatest qualities of Alicia are that she understands when there is urgency and shuts her mouth.

We sprang through the stairs to the second floor. Just as I had expected they hadn't even reached halfway to their making out session. Just as we appeared in front of them I had another bigger Idea I told Alicia to wait in the curve from where she could listen to the drama that was about to begin and I went in front of them and began my performance.

“who do we have here? Jenny and Peter!! Peter you've better gotta be careful, what if Sia finds you both in this state? ” I snickered

“and how will that happen you will tell her? Oh! Believe me I know that you've tried to and she did not believe you did she? ” his snickered matched mine

“Liz don't you have a class? Or a person to make out with in the corner? Oh my gosh! Did I just say that? I'm so sorry I totally forgot that our dear little bitchy Liz gave up on love just after her so-called-boyfriend left her for me!!! ”

Jennifer stated with her evil grin

Seriously, I did not want to spoil my perfect plan for a slut like her. So what did I do? Yep I ignored her.

“Soo Peter let me see how long you've cheated on Sia, ummmmm-”

“A year and a half” he completed for me

“sure? ” I grinned

“positive” he grinned back

“Sia you can come out” I called out to her.

She came out, her legs shaking furiously and unstoppable tears running down her face.

Luke came out behind her.

“we're done and I hate you” were the last words she said before running down the stairs with Luke at her heels.

I didn't follow her knowing that the correct person was with her. I turned back to a furious Peter.

“YOU FUCKING BITCH!!!”

He screamed and pushed me hard against the wall and I knew that it is now moments before I'd pass out cause the dizziness was already happening. He prepared his hands to slap me and I squeezed my eyes shut feeling helpless and preparing myself for pain. But eventually the pain didn't come and his hand loosened against my arm.

I immediately fell on the ground. I opened my eyes as much as I could which wasn't much, and saw that someone had got hold of Peter's shirt and was now throwing punches after punches on his face. Jennifer as expected had fled away. Whoever the person was, he finally finished punching him and came to me. By now the dizziness was too much and I had started blacking out.

The last thing I saw before blacking out were the most beautiful pair of green eyes that I had ever seen and to make matters worse I know whom they belonged to.

And then everything turned too dark for me to make out anything.
