"Waiting for the End" by Linkin Park

Thoughts were spinning in his head as he looked at the empty bed. Troy was gone. This wasn't how it was supposed to go. Troy and Abed were supposed to live together. No diversions or changes. He didn't like change.

Things were left unsaid when Troy left. He had always had trouble expressing himself. It was hard for him to let go of things. People. And Troy was his best friend. His best friend that had decided to move in with his new girlfriend. To live with her. He didn't know what it would take to move on.

Arms wrapped around his neck and he felt her kiss his temple.

"You ok Abed?"

He brought his hand up and rested it on her forearm, "Troy's gone."

She leaned her head against his and said, "I know sweetie. But it'll be ok. I promise."

"Troy promised. How can you?" he asked plainly.

She untangled her arms and walked around the recliner. Standing in front of him she tilted his head up.

"Because I love you Abed. This is not the end. This is a new beginning," he looked into her eyes. They were warm and sad. He didn't know if it was for him. Or for Troy. But she was here with him. Always would be, "The hardest part of ending is starting again."

He looked at her in silence for a couple of seconds before saying, "And you'll start with me?"

She smiled and nodded, "Of course Abed."

He leaned forward and rested his head against her stomach. It was still fresh in his mind. Troy was still gone. Still moving in with his new girlfriend. But she was here. His girlfriend was here. And even if there was change...she would help him through it. He wrapped his arms around her legs and sighed before saying, "Cool."

Annie ran her fingers through his hair and replied softly, "Cool, cool, cool."

Author's Note: Part 2 COMPLETE! Hope you liked it. I'm really trying to do some stuff from Abed's POV. Still have some work to do on his character but I think I'm getting there.

So tell me what you think and REVIEW, REVIEW, REVIEW, REVIEW, AND REVIEW!

P.S. Any ideas you'd like to see?
