You're a victim of bad timing. Aside from wanting to be around her out of pleasure, your friend may feel he NEEDS to be with her a lot, to guard his "catch" from poachers, and to maintain & cultivate her interest. He may feel this is his critical window of opportunity to "court" her and win her over.
Whereas from his perspective, you two guys are already friends, already have a solid relationship, so he sees the priority here in the reverse of how you see it. He may not like it himself, but he doesn't wanna lose her, whereas he may feel he can't lose you as a friend. And since you are in fact moving away, leaving him without your company, and she's the one presumably staying, he wants to invest in his future, not his past alone.
Or else, she's a jealous, manipulative bitch who's pulling his strings at your expense, and you should tell your friend lies that you saw her working the Vegas Strip when not with him, so he'll dump her and you'll have your 17 days with him.
Seriously, you've had his friendship all this time, and you are indeed moving away; what's 17 days more or less? And I presume you guys were just buds, not lovers yourselves, and it's hard to compete against romance. No, it's time to call in the next squad to take the playing field, while you hit the showers; game's over for you.
