The time at the cinema was a bit of a blur when I woke up the next morning. My head pounded and the only images I coud conjure up were of me vomitting; Ally's worried face and, oddly enough, Nick's arm around my waist.
It was like a hangover.
I groaned, dragging myself out of bed. I had no plans for the day and I was honestly glad of this, I looked forward to a day vegging out infront of the tv. Mostly, I got what I wanted. What was a surprise though, was when Nick appeared on my doorstep.
Nick? On my doorstep?
I started to worry if I may have done something I shouldn't have the night before. I was relieved to find out the reason for his sudden appearance was simply to ask me to the shopping centre with him and the others. I told him I would ask my parents and text him later.
So that's how I found myself at the shopping centre with Ally, Jerry and Nick. It actually began surprisingly well. Ally and Jerry seemed to be like themselves for a little while. And I must admit it was hilarious when Jerry walked right into a women's clothes store. I even took over after a while and I found myself wondering why I had ever been so scared of this. Of taking control.
That's when I realised just how happy I really was. Being with Ally had really changed me. Not in the way that people change to unnecassarily impress people, but in a way that I liked.
I had friends.
I was happy.
And finally I was more confident in myself.
The only hitch to our day... was when Ethan turned up.
