It was a cold winter's day and Jamison was just making the finishing touches to her ad for a new roommate.  She was gutted she had to do this as it meant her best friend was really leaving, she had only found out a week ago that Joni was moving to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career (typical Jamison had thought when she found out), it sucked. 

Jamison and Joni had been inseperable since they met when they were 3 years old and now at 20 it was really hard to say goodbye.

Jamison looked down at her ad to see a few blots of ink where her tears had rolled from her face.  She scrunched up the ad and got another piece of card out of her stationary drawer and started over again, "Roommate wanted. Must be laid back and  like to engage in conversations about absolutely anything from art to music.  Call Jamison on 03921-028331 or e-mail me at jamisonmacaulay@dmail.com".

Shortly after she had finished the ad she jumped in the shower and got ready.  She went into the living room and noticed that all of Joni's suitcases were at the door, she glanced at her watch there was only 15 minutes left  before Joni left for good. All of a sudden Joni came running through in tears and jumped into Jamison's arms, all Jamison could do was hold her tight. After a few moments of silence Jamison sighed and said "What's up Joni?" to which Joni replied "I'm going to miss you" and then through uncontrollable sobs said "I love you Jamison, promise we'll always stay in touch and we'll visit each other whenever we can." "Promise", the only word she managed to say before breaking down.

15 minutes had gone and all they heard is someone beeping their horn, it was Joni's taxi.  Jamison struggled to let Joni go but reluctantly did after a few minutes but not before saying "Joni, I love you, you're like a sister to me and I promise you will never lose me, friends forever. I'll ring, text, e-mail and write letters to you everyday, always."

They once again held each other tight and as Joni sliped out of Jamisons tight grip, the tears started to fall for both of them. Jamison tried to blink back the tears and with that blink Joni was gone.

A few hours had past and Jamison was still crouched down at the front door in tears when all of a sudden she felt her phone vibrate in her pocket, she thought of ignoring it but reluctantly took it out of her pocket and looked at the screen.  Her face automatically lit up at the sight of Joni's smiling face on the screen, when she answered the call all she could say was "Joni, I uh...." after a few seconds in silence Joni said "I know Jamison, me too, I miss you so much and I haven't even boarded my flight yet.  I don't know what to do, I don't know if I can be without you next to me."  With that Jamison interupted "Joni as much as I'd love it if you didn't leave, you need to do this for yourself, it's what you have always wanted, you are a strong, amazing and inspiring person and your dreams will come true but IF they don't I will be here for you, a shoulder to cry on.  I will always be in your life no matter where you are or where I am." "Thanks Jamison, I needed to hear that.  My flight is about to board, I will ring you as soon as I land, I promise. Love and miss you" and with that Joni had disconnected and had once again left Jamison in tears on the floor as much as Jamison knew that Joni needed to do this she wished she had just told Joni to come back home but Joni's dreams were more important than her feelings. 

At that Jamison had decided to go to her room and read a book for class 'Child Psychology: An Insight'.  Jamison was studying to be a child psychologist but she also wanted to be a Paediatric Nurse, so thought that after her degree in child psychology she would then fo on to get a degree in Paediatric Nursing.  Jamison loved helping people and had always done so, in fact that is how Jamison and Joni met, Jamison had stood up to the bullies at the playground who were calling Joni names and pushing her all because of where she was from.  Joni was from England and had moved to Scotland just a month previous and was glad of the helping hand and they had been inseperable since.

Jamison had read through the book and decided to go for a long walk.  Whilst she was out she went into the local library to photocopy her roommate ad, once she had done that she put one up in the library and then put the rest up in local shops as well as putting the last one up in the local college.  After this she went for ice-cream and relaxed on the beach for an hour.

On Jamison's way home she stopped off at her Mums for a quick chat about how she was feeling, she told her Mum that she missed Joni a lot and that she wished she hadn't gone but knew that it's what Joni needed, her Mum was empathetic and said that after the college semester she would pay for Jamison to fly to LA to see Joni.  Jamison was exstatic.  At this Jamison decided to leave so she can get home and sleep, just as she was leaving the door her Mum handed her her favourite cupcakes to cheer her up and her child hood teddy in hope that it would help her sleep.

Once Jamison got home she kicked her shoes off and took a bottle of water out of the fridge and took a drink before putting it back, as soon as she closed the fridge door she opened it again and took the bottle out and thought if Joni had been here she would have moaned at me for that.  She headed to her bedroom and placed the bottle on the nightstand and got her pj's on and crawled into bed with her teddy in one hand and a cupcake in the other.  After she had munched the cupcake she lay down and turned off her lamp and lay there thinking of Joni.  She must've dosed off as she woke up to 'Te Amo' playing, it was her ringtone for Joni, she jumped up realising it was in fact Joni rining her, she answered as quickly as she could "Jamison it's me" "Hi Joni, I miss you" "I miss you too, listen I can't be on the phone for long as I'm shattered but I just wanted to let you know that I have arrived safely, I'm just heading to my apartment now and then going to crash for a bit and then I will ring you when I get up." "Ok Joni,  I love you Joni, thanks for calling." "I love you too Jamison, speak later."

Jamison placed her phone back down on the nightstand before looking at the clock it was 5:30am, she decided to go back to sleep. Her alarm went off at 8:00am she switched it off and just lay there staring at the ceiling for a few minutes before getting up and taking a quick shower. It was the last week of the holidays so she had nothing planned but to chill out and watch dvd's.
