Things started off so fantastic that semester… but then Andrew seemed to have lost his way in the past month. High school was finally over and now he was a college freshman. Everything should have been perfect, everything should have been easy and fun. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. Classes were harder than he expected, and he felt overwhelmed. Even Miranda wasn't able to shake Andrew out of his funk, so instead he turned to liquor and weed. Those were his escapes lately. He knew that Miranda didn't like it, it made things between them tense. But he didn't know how to stop, how to get back on the right path.

It was a Thursday night, and as always, he already had a solid buzz by nine o'clock. He stumbled across the hall towards Miranda's bedroom, and knocked a few times once he got there. "Baaaabe. Babe! Let me in. It's me," he chuckled and leaned against the door frame. A few girls from further down the hall passed by him and he caught one of their eyes and grinned, "Hey, where ya headed so fast?" As of late, Andrew was more flirtatious when buzzed, but as he transitioned into drunk his temper grew shorter. Lucky for these girls, they caught him buzzed, because drunk Andrew would have asked what the hell they were staring at.

College was a different beast, but not something that Miranda couldn’t handle. It was scary starting over, but she was thankful that she didn’t have to do it completely alone. She had Andrew there with her and initially it was like her saving grace. She was happy that unlike her friends, she still got to see him. It wasn’t until recently that it started becoming less enjoyable. Her workload was building up along with her extra-curricular activities. Andrew seemed to be different too. He drank and partied a lot more, which part of her figured he wanted to not feel like he was at the bottom of the barrel again now that they were in college. He had always been a popular guy. It was only natural that he’d want to continue that here.

Miranda had been freaking out for the past two days. Her period was late and that had never happened to her before. She had talked to her roommate about it and her suggestion had freaked her out even more. She wasn’t pregnant. She couldn’t have been. They practiced safe sex…for the most part. There had been one time not too far back when the condom had broken a little. She had been worried, but after a couple of days, she had forgotten about it…until now. She jumped hearing the knocking on her dorm door. Miranda got up, looking through the peephole and saw him. She was going to open the door when she saw the girls walk past and heard his comment. She clenched her jaw before turning and leaning against the door. “What do you want Andrew?”, she shouted from the other side.

Miranda was correct in some of her assumptions. Yes, Andrew didn't want to feel like a nobody here. It was a big school and easy to get lost in the sea of people, but he had always stood out. He was always popular, whether the reasoning for it be good or bad. It was something he had become accustomed to and the only way he knew to keep that going was through partying. However, his reputation wasn't all that stressed him out, in fact that was the least of his worries. It was his grades. The material didn't come easily to him, he was struggling and it only made him feel even more unworthy of Miranda. But how did he possibly tell her this without sounding like a weakling? He didn't know... so he kept drinking.

Of course, Andrew was unaware of Miranda's own worries. If he knew what was consuming her mind then maybe he would have behaved himself differently. Or it could have sent him further into a hopeless downward spiral. Her anger startled him and he jumped back a bit, genuinely confused by her anger, "Babe, let me in!" he called to her from the other side. Andrew was clueless as to what he had done to upset her, but wanted desperately to be in the room with her. Drinking brought out many emotions in Andrew - happiness, rage, but it also amplified his feelings for Miranda. Despite the flirtation with the random girls, he didn't forget why he was there in the first place. His voice softened, "Pleas, don't make me stand out here alone, baby. I missed you so much tonight."

Miranda couldn’t help but to feel scared. What if she was pregnant? What would that mean for them? She couldn’t be a mom. She still had so much left that she wanted to do. So much of the world that she wanted to see. Plus, what if Andrew didn’t want to be a dad and he ended up leaving her? She had seen countless TV shows and movies with similar situations and the end results usually went one of two ways. She didn’t think she could bear the idea of having to do this alone. She trusted that Andrew loved her, but she knew that babies were a whole new thing and that people handled news of something like that differently.

Hearing him on the other side of the door, she sighed before she turned, putting her hand on the latch and unlocked it and opened the door. She glanced up at him for a second. “Come in.” She didn’t know how long Sydney was going to be gone so she figured she’d text her and let her know that Andrew was over and that they needed to talk though honestly, she wasn’t sure how much talking she’d be able to do without breaking down first. She closed the door and sat down on her bed before laying back, looking up at the ceiling.

Miranda had nothing to worry about, but of course she didn't know that. What college freshman in his right mind would want a college? Though Andrew wasn't ready by any means, children were the furthest thing from his mind, he'd never leave Miranda because of it. He'd definitely panic at first, but they'd figure things out, just like they always did. Together. Andrew firmly believed they could get through anything so long as they were together.

Relief washed over him when she let him in, a giddy grin instantly consuming his face. Unfortunately, Miranda's mood was hard to miss. Something was bothering her, but he wasn't quite sure what. Immediately he laid beside her on the small twin bed, "Something is wrong... what's the matter, babe?" His eyes fixated on her as he laid on his side.

Miranda wasn’t even sure where she should even start. She was so freaked out she couldn’t even think straight and now she was irritable on top of it all. “I see you made some new friends while you were waiting for me to come to the door”, she said in reference to the girls who had walked passed him. It was like in that split second she saw that guy who she’d known him to be in high school. That guy looking for his next conquest. Miranda liked to think she was wrong. Maybe it was just the stress from the situation, but it was a bit overwhelming. Miranda got up, putting her hand to her forehead, feeling as though she might have collapsed.

“Do you even want to be with me anymore? Or has the options of this place become so overwhelming?” As the words came out of her mouth, she realized how irrational she sounded. “Look, I’m sorry. I know that’s not fair. It’s just I’ve been so stressed. All this stuff is happening and I feel like we just haven’t been on the same level and with everything going on right now…I just…”, she paused. “I don’t want to have to guess about what we are.”
