Drake: what do you mean you're not coming?
Nicki: I mean, I'm staying at home. Love you, have fun xo
Nicki threw her phone to the bottom of her bed and sunk back into her covers. Every new years eve, Nicki would meet up with all her friends and go to Times Square to celebrate, but she was not feeling it this year. All she wanted to do was lie in bed and lounge around. She had just found a good movie to watch when her stomach rumbled and she decided to order something. She was a quarter way through the movie when the door knocked.
"Mmm, my pizza must be here" Scurrying out of her room, grabbing her dressing gown and purse on the way.
"That'll be $10.15 cents" Nicki not bothering to look at the pizza boy, took the pizza box and slapped $20 in his hand. She turned around and kicked the door shut with her foot.
She walked back up the stairs. Drake re-opened the door and quietly shut it behind him. He silently thanked God she didn't have creaking steps. She was sat on the right side so he could jump on the bed and that's he did.
"Holy shit!" Nicki screamed, pulling the pizza box to her chest. "What are you doing here?"
"Spending the new year with my best friend"
"Aww, you didn't have to"
"Nah I did, so what we doing?"
"Well, I was going to watch a shit load of movies and eat pizza"
"Well let me get myself ready" Drake stood up and took off his clothes, leaving him in his boxer shorts, and jumped under the covers.
"Pass us a slice then"
"Your mother's so stupid she exercises when she could just get like, liposuction or something!"
"Your mother's so old that her breast milk is powdered. You breast-feed like this"
Nicki stopped laughing and wiped the tears from her eyes. "What time is it?"
"11:55" Drake checked his phone.
"We have to do the countdown, let me get a bottle of wine" She ran out the room with her junk food in her hands.
"Two minutes left!" Drake shouted. Nicki put the wine and glasses under her armpits and ran as fast as she could back upstairs.
She put the bottle down on her side of the bed and handed Drake a glass. After pouring some in Drake's glass, she poured hers. "3,2,1"
"HAPPY NEW YEAR!" They clinked their glasses together and took a swing. Then there was silence.
"Where's the fireworks?" Nicki looked out the window and saw nothing.
"I don't know" Drake finished his glass and flicked to the news channel. "My phone's fast, we've still got a minute"
Nicki put her half empty glass down and got comfy under the covers again. "And the countdown starts again" They laughed.
"Countdown time. 10,9,8," The news anchor announced.
"You know there's no one I would rather spend the new year with" Drake said.
"3,2,1" Each second her face inched closer to his, her lips pressed against his softly. And she smiled when she pulled away.
"Happy new year babe"
