After the email exchange we went back to living together...She pretended nothing ever happened and I felt constantly uncomfortable. I left for two weeks to California with Liam and while we were there he asked me to move in with him. Mind you, we had only been dating for 2-3 months at this juncture...I said yes (bad moves but living with Eve SUCKED). When I got back to DC I told Eve I was moving out as of October 1... I posted an ad on craigslist and told her I'd coordinate finding my replacement.
A few weeks of interviewing different folks and I finally found the perfect roommate. She was from Ohio, liked all the same sports teams as Eve and they got along famously.
I moved out and Eve became best friends with Meg, her new roommate. I'd watch their antics from Annapolis via facebook. Eve was constantly putting on a show and I was pretty jealous/hurt. When my birthday rolled around the following year she planned a Vegas trip and had no intention of celebrating with me. This was a final straw for us...I moved mountains to make sure her birthday was fantastic the year before and if she was actually sorry, shouldn't being here for my party be on her radar? Shouldn't she be busting ass to get our friendship back on track?
Fast forward -
Eventually things faded and we stopped speaking altogether. Liam and I broke up and I moved back to DC.
That's when backstab #2 occurred.
I had started dating someone new and had posted photos of us on instagram. Eve took it upon herself to text Liam out of the clear blue (hadn't spoke to him in roughly 2 years) to ask if he'd met my new boyfriend.
Liam: "Elle and I are still very close, I'd know if she had a new boyfriend."
Eve: "Guess you haven't looked at her instagram lately..."
(such a gossip girl move, UGH)
Liam FREAKED out. I had jumped into this rebound relationship REALLY quickly after we ended (best sex of my life) and I hadn't told him...we'd promised if we dated someone important that we'd tell each other first vs finding out via facebook, etc.
My new relationship was NOT serious. I saw the guy 1x or 2x a week and I definitely was not in love with him. I didn't NEED to tell Liam yet. Anyways, this news led to war & heartbreak between Liam and I. He HATED me. Thanks for that Eve, you jealous, psychotic, POS.
Fast forward to Cinco De Mayo of the same year. I'd just finished dinner with my new beau when I received a call from Mia...
Mia: "Elle, I need to tell you something...Eve told everyone the reason you two are no longer friends is because you owe her thousands of dollars in back rent."
Elle: "Are you FUCKING KIDDING ME?!!!!!!! Who has she said that to?!"
Mia tells me everything and I L O S E my shit. I start crying because this is so low, even for Eve. How did I trust this girl with my life?! She is running around defaming me and people are ACTUALLY believing it?!
I call Eve on repeat. I mean maybe 100+ times. NO answer. I leave her a scathing voicemail and bombard her with texts.
The next day I get a reply, "Elle, that is false, I never said that. Must be a misunderstanding."
Elle: "Eve, if you don't call every fucking person you told this to, ALL your past indiscretions will be on blast and you know I have more dirt on you than ANYONE. FIX THIS AND FIX IT NOW."
Eve: "Elle, you wouldn't...."
Elle: "Eve, you should know better than anyone that crossing me is a bad, bad move. Goodbye."
AND that ladies and gents is how we officially broke up. I haven't heard from her since and neither has anyone else.
Writing this story brings me back to some very negative emotions...I still haven't found someone I can be as close to as Eve...I have a lot of very wonderful, close friends but comes close to the level we were on. She knew my darkest secrets, she witnessed my happiest moments, she was there through it all.
Sad how people really can change...
Lastly, here's a video on losing your BFF.
Worst break-up EVER.
