“ Autumn your package is here” Derek yells from the kitchen.
I squeal as I head to the door. Me and my bestie Derek just moved here for college. Derek's parents own apartment buildings so we just moved into one. They said that we didn’t have to pay for anything but every month I still give them something. I hate getting things and not giving back.
Even though she ended up giving it right back.
I open the door to find my box on the floor in front of my apartment door. I ordered some omighty tees with my extra money.
I pick up the package and bring it to the kitchen. I have a small addition to baby tees. 𝐷𝑜𝑛’𝑡 𝑙𝑖𝑒 𝑎𝑢𝑡𝑢𝑚𝑛 𝑖𝑡𝑠 𝑚𝑜𝑟𝑒 𝑡ℎ𝑎𝑛 𝑠𝑚𝑎𝑙𝑙
I blame instagram and Pinterest. They also make me wanna buy everything I see. 𝐷𝑢𝑚𝑝 𝑎𝑝𝑝𝑠!
Derek walks in the kitchen eyeing the package. “I see my favorite Addict in her natural habitat,” he laughs.
“I promise this is my last order”
“Mhm whatever you say” I roll my eyes and start to open my package.
“So you ready for school tomorrow?” He questions.
I bite my lip in anxiety. No one liked me In high school. I was always the girl people picked on. I’ve never figured out why no one liked me. Maybe it’s because of my weird laugh or my obsession with bunnies freaked them out. But who doesn’t like bunny’s?
“No ones gonna like me” I whisper.
He walks over to me and wraps his arms around me giving me a hug. “ they’re gonna like you ok. And if they don’t their stupid”
“But what if-“
“Nope not hearing it” I let out a sigh and hugged him back. We stand there for a few seconds before letting go.
“I gotta go hang with Emma. Will you be ok alone?” He asks. Emma, his girlfriend. They met each other when we first got down here and soon started dating. She’s really nice and pretty.
I try to be friends with her but everytime I talk to her she seems to be annoyed. So I just stay away.
“Yea I’ll be okay you can go” I assure him. He nods his head and goes into his room.

I’m currently sitting in my bed eating Oreos while crying. For some odd reason I decided to put on the titanic knowing I would cry. 𝐼𝑡𝑠 𝑚𝑦 𝑒𝑥𝑐𝑢𝑠𝑒 𝑡𝑜 𝑒𝑎𝑡 𝑎 𝑤ℎ𝑜𝑙𝑒 𝑝𝑎𝑐𝑘 𝑜𝑓 𝑜𝑟𝑒𝑜𝑠
Dipping my hand into the pack I feel nothing. Really? How could the Oreos do this to me?
I won’t let the Oreos win. I'm going to the store to get more! I hop out of bed, grab my keys and walk out the room.
I can’t see very well during the night so I turn on all the lights. By the door my hoodie and shoes lay. I put on the hoodie but stare at the shoes. Should I put them on? It might take a long and I really want Oreos.
My fluffy bear slippers will do.
I grab everything I need and head out the door. My car is parked right in the front so I don’t have to walk long. I have a blue Mini Cooper. I know some people may think they’re odd but in reality they're so cute. It’s my own little space. I’m only 5’2 so I don’t need a big car.
I hop in my car and start the engine. Of course I have to put it on. I can’t handle change by Roar. 𝑂𝑛𝑒 𝑜𝑓 𝑚𝑦 𝑓𝑎𝑣 𝑠𝑜𝑛𝑔𝑠
Oreos here I come!
Standing in the aisle my eyes search for the Oreos. Are they hiding them from me?
Still not seeing the Oreos I go to plan b. Talk to the worker. I would’ve done this the first 20 minutes I was here but I get nervous talking to people. I always start ranting about whatever when I’m nervous so people either give me weird looks or just walk away.
I build up my courage and March to the nearest worker I see.
“Hi, how may I help you?” Fear overcomes me when he meets my eyes. 𝐶𝑎𝑛 ℎ𝑒 𝑙𝑜𝑜𝑘 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑜𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑟 𝑤𝑎𝑦?
“ I-I’m looking for Oreos but I don’t see any”
“Yea we're all out sorry” he gives me an apologetic smile. Sighing I walk out the store.
The streets are dark but the street lights are helping me see. I walk further down the street to find a guy sitting on the bench.
Maybe he’s homeless. I can get him some food or anything he needs.
“Are you okay” I ask, trying to see what he looks like.
He doesn’t answer, he just sits there.
“Um if you need any food or anything I can buy you some”
Still no answer. I get this feeling he’s not homeless, maybe just lonely.
“ Not a big talker I see, well my name’s autumn and I came to get some Oreos so I can finish crying over the titanic. Have you ever seen that movie? anyway-“
“Shut up” oh.
His voice is deep and Smokey like a mystery. 𝑂𝑘 ℎ𝑜𝑡!
“Oh uh ok” I stand there unsure what to do. Did my voice annoy him that much? I know it can be annoying and ugly at times.
Suddenly he stands up and starts to walk away. Guess this is goodbye hot Smokey voice. I turn to leave but he says something.
“Let’s go” huh? He just told me to shut up now he wants to hangout.
“Where are we going?”
“To get you a damn milkshake” yay! I might not have Oreos but I’m getting a milkshake.
