Anna: Coffee & The GymMature

I awoke the next morning and rolled over to see the side of the bed which Leanne would have been still empty. I felt a tear trickle down my cheek at the thought that I had lost Leanne forever but I quickly brushed it away. I couldn’t cry, I needed to be strong and as much as I hated to say it, Sam had been right.  I crawled out of bed and pulled on a tank top which Leanne had given me and I couldn’t part with which said ‘Keep Calm and Take Care because YOLO’ and some jogging bottoms and trainers, shoved my I-Pod in a zipped pocket an went downstairs. I decided that I needed to go to the gym to take my mind off Leanne even though I hardly ever went to the gym.

I wandered into the kitchen and filled the kettle up with water, grabbed a mug and without thinking put a spoonful of coffee into it even though 1) I didn’t even like coffee and 2) only Leanne drunk it. I shrugged and poured the freshly boiled water into the mug and added a drop of milk, the smell of freshly made coffee filled the air, making me wrinkle my nose slightly.

Cara came bounding into the room a smile on her face; she had obviously just had some fun with Sam, something I didn’t want to think about right now.

“Is that coffee?” she asked, a perplexed look on her face.

“Yeah, so what if it is” I said sounding a little too defensive that Cara was taken aback, “Sorry, I didn’t get much sleep” I said apologetically.

“Its okay, it’s just when did you start drinking coffee? I thought you hated it?”

“Its okay I guess” I said unconvincingly especially since I took a mouthful then pulled a face which proved I hated it.

“Hmm okay” she said, “What plans have you got today?” she asked.

“Well if you can’t tell I am going to the gym, want to come with?”

“You? The Gym?”


“Another thing you never normally do. What’s gotten into you?”

“Nothing just thought I should go to the gym more often. Coming?”

“Yeah okay then, Sam’s gone to work and I have no lectures today so yeah the gym sounds like a good idea, I’ll just go get changed.”

As Cara turned and headed back into her room to get changed for the gym I took another swig of coffee and instantly spat it out in the sink. How could Leanne drink this stuff, it still tasted god damn awful to me!

The End
