It's two in the afternoon, quiet a snowy day and I just left the airport. I decided to move back into town because I was homesick. Working out of the country for as long so as I have, you miss home. The cab pulled up outside of my new apartment, I looked up at the tall building and smiled. "Time to start my new life" I smiled and got out of the cab. The front of the building was cluttered with my moving boxes. There was a small boy wearing a bright red sweater checking the mail by the door. He flipped through a few of the mail before making a face and walking back inside. I watched as he walked inside, I felt like I knew him. I reached into my pocket and pulled out a piece of paper, the paper had my apartment number and a small key crumbled up in it. I went inside and walked upstairs looking for my apartment. "2C...2C" I mumbled to myself. I finally found my apartment but the door was slightly open, "Helloo?" I peeked my head inside the apartment and looked around. Inside the apartment was decorated beautifully, there was a faint humming coming from the kitchen. "Helloo?" I said again as I walked inside the apartment. A woman with Brown hair and pale skin walked into the kitchen carrying a plate and a cup. When she finally noticed me, she dropped the plate and cup. "T-Trish??" she said in shock. "Is that you??"
I stepped back in shock, there's no way that's her. It's been so long, I felt a little sadness bubble in me but I didn't want to show it. "Y-Yeah it's me...it's nice to see you again Anna" I didn't expect to see her here, then that person in the red sweater must be-
"Look about a few years ago" she said disrupting my thoughts. "I'm sorry-"
I shook my head with a smile "Don't worry about it, I completely understand! So let's forget about that and talk about you! How you been!"
Anna laughed softly and smiled "I've been pretty good these past few years, how have you been?"
"I've been pretty good! Life is all good over here!" I smiled and dropped my bag on the couch. "So How is everyone else? Are they still around?"
"ANNA! ANNA!" screamed a male voice from downstairs. Footsteps quickly ran up the stairs and dashed into her apartment. "Did you see it? Did you see it?" He jumped up and down excitedly. He looked over at me and tilted his head "who are you?"
I stared at him quite confused, I slowly looked down at his red sweater and rolled my eyes with a smile. "Did you really forget about me C?"
C smiled and gave me a huge hug, "It's nice to see you back over here Trish!"
"Nevermind Trish! What are you talking about C?!" Anna stared at C excited expression.
C shoved me aside " The new episode of Love Live: Live Live Love! duh!"
"Oh I thought you were going to say something interesting" Anna crossed her arms with a smirk. "Love Live is old!"
"Don't you dare say its old! It's a legend and shall continue to be a legend!" C crossed his arms. They both stared at each other for a few minutes before breaking into laughter and turning to me.
"So what brings you back Trish? Last I remember you left town cause of-"
"Shush C! We already discussed that."
"Right Sorry! Well, the rest of the gang are living in the apartment too" C smiled and patted me on the shoulder. "When you have the time come and visit me and Koi downstairs!" He walked out of the apartment and went downstairs.
"I didn't know that C and Koi are still together, it's been awhiiiiiile" I chuckled and walked into the kitchen. "Are they married?" I leaned down and picked up the tiny pieces of the plate and the cup Anna dropped on the floor.
"Yeah, they got married not too long ago" Anna grabbed broomed and dustpan, she swept up the rest of the remaining bits of glass on the floor.
"IS SHE HERE?" screamed a female voice from down the hall. The person dashed into the apartment and looked around. When she finally noticed me, she tackled to the floor causing me to drop the glass to the floor.
"Trish you're back! I can't believe it!!"
I laughed and hugged her tightly, "It's to see you too Ash!"
"Did C, tell you that Trish came back?" Anna asked
"He sent a message to the group chat!" Ash hugged me back tightly, rubbing her face against mine. "I missed you soooo much! Why didn't you call?"
"Cause I needed to get away, I'm sorry Ash" I smiled and patted her on the head. Ash got off me and helped me to my feet, Anna swept up the glass and dumped it into the trash can.
"I'm sooo excited to have back around! There's so many things I have to show and tell you!" Ash bounced up and down happily. "But I know you must be tired from your looong flight, so I'll let you go for now!" She winked at me and skipped to the door. She turned around and flashed a smile before quickly leaving.
"So that means Nika and Lenny will be coming soon?" I dusted myself off, laughing "Can't wait to be tackled again"
Anna laughed and put away the broom and the dustpan in the hall way closet. "Nah they're on a date right now, not coming back until like an hour or something"
"Wow are they married too?"
"Not yet but he's thinking about asking her soon" Anna smiled and throws herself on the couch. "Are you going to bring in your stuff?"
"Yeah! I'm just waiting on the movers to get here"
"But your stuff came before you did.."
Anna went selient for a second "Trish..they aren't coming back. If they got here before you AND you wasn't here, they left"
Anna chuckled to herself and got off the couch, "Don't worry we'll call the others to come and help us!"
I smiled and nodded.
It felt good to back home, around my friends.
