I was walking straight to my apartment. After a long day all I was hoping to do was to have something to eat, take a long relaxing bath and have some rest. I opened my bag and I looked for my keys then I heard a tremendous sound coming inside my place. I hesitated to open the door and when I did my heart almost stopped. My best friend steph who was my roommate for about 2 years decided to have a party, but she didn’t even bother to ask me. She was totally drunk and she passed out in the middle of our living room. Everything was a complete disaster. They were about 30 or more people inside our small apartment.Order now
I was totally mad and I wanted to scream. I woke my friend and I told her “I’m so done with you”. Steph was a really good friend after all. We meet since freshman year and since then we became inseparable. When her mother died I convinced her to get an apartment just for us, since she had no family in El Paso. Everything had worked really well the first year. She was an incredible student and she even received a scholarship to play soccer at UTEP. Steph had a great job as a secretary that allowed her to pay half of the bills in order for us to have everything under control.
She was a great help inside the house. Her room was always organized and she would help me with the domestic duties. In that moment I couldn’t think of anyone else that could do it better than her. She was a responsible and independent woman and I actually was really proud of her. She seemed happy full of dreams that she proposed to accomplish for herself, but everything changed after she meet Alfredo. He was the type of guy no lady wants to be around. Stephs mother took 9 months to build her heart inside her stomag and this guy found a way to destroyed it in less than weeks.
She went throw a tough time and I lost her. She start it to drink every weekend, she lost her scholarship and quit her job. I tried my best to support her and I did gave her good advises but she refused to listen. I gave her time for her to recover and tried to put everything under control. I was struggling because had to pay all the bills and also I had to deal with the worst version of her. She wouldn’t help me with the domestic duties. The apartment was always nasty, she had all day for her to clean it but god knows in what things she spends her time on.
Every time that I asked her if she wanted to go job hunting, she would came up with excuses. I tried to understand and let her stay since she had no one but me, but after 6 months of her being unemployed and still having a lazy attitude, random parties inside our place, and with no help paying the bills I had to find a way to have a win win situation. I just couldn’t kick my best friend out the house. If she didn’t listen to me I was going to show her. I gave her a bag that contained a DVD that I made especially for her. She was so excited and she didn’t even think twice for her to press the play button.
As soon as the movie began a lot of flashback pictures of us appeared. I also added pictures of steph and her mom. Her emotions start it to appear and I could see tears running down her eyes. At the end of the movie it was a short clip of me explaining how much I loved her and how much I had struggled because of her attitude. I even added pictures of the unpaid bills, the dirtiness of our apartment, and the bags under my eyes as the effects of her random parties. As soon as the movie ended she hugged me so hard and cried.
I didn’t even know what to say, I was hoping she could understand me. She said she was sorry for her being selfish and that she knew I was going to be always by her side. The next day she went job hunting all day. Everything start it to change she quit having parties in our place and fix all the bad habits she had in the past. I felt so relieve and happy that my old friend was back. I’m glad I found a solution for the difficulties we went through these past months. I understand that our friendship is stronger that anything and I know her mom will be very proud of her just like me.
