"Are you sure we should be doing this? Finals are tomorrow..." I tugged on Caspian's sleeves.
"Stop being such a book worm and loosen up, Tess." Caspian said with an exasperated tone.
The evening air was bone-chilling. The nipping sensation of the winter breeze seeped into my limbs as I trudged through deserted alleys and past the blinking of dim street lights. The moon was just peaking above the wintery clouds, leaving a beautiful, dim blue light that barely illuminated the frozen city.
Ice crackled underneath our feet as we scurried across the street. A whipping, chilly wind whisked around me, lifting my auburn hair from the protection of my heavy beige duffle coat and frantically licked at my numb face. I begrudgingly spread my fingers out of the warmth of the fluffy sleeves and tucked flyaway hair behind my ears and back into folds of my coat.
Thankfully though, I was closely trailing behind my best friend Caspian, who was blocking forty-five percent of the wind that was being tossed our way. Still, I was utterly cold, keeping me silent, completely opposite of my usual personality.
"You alive back there?" Caspian turned his head and grinned at me as I shot him a menacing glare.
"Just because I'm quiet doesn't mean I'm dead. Why are we even out here?" I rubbed my hands together, hoping for warmth to come, but when it didn't, I stubbornly gave up.
"You really don't remember? C'mon, Tess! You're the nerd here, you should know." Caspian chuckled.
Of course I remember! You were invited to one of Jake Reiker's infamous parties! I mentally screamed. To be invited to Jake Reiker's party was impressive, but to me, it wasn't that big of a deal.
But, of course, despite Caspian's harem of girls to select to bring, he had to drag me along. We go way back, from the untimely incident of my father's abrupt about death nine years ago, till now, freezing outside in the biting gust.
Several awkward minutes passed by while bright stars slowly began to materialize out the thick blanket of black that lined the atmosphere. Tall lampposts flickered on and off giving me some serious chills. My conscious mind started to drift into the vibrant imagination parts of my subconscious and I soon had to struggle to keep track of where we were going.
Soon, the outline of Jake's house settled itself in the field of our vision, strobe lights pouring from the windows and toilet paper messily wrapped around the house and the trees that towered above the house. I found myself gaping at my classmates running amuck, beers in hand, shirts stained with nacho cheese, tripping over each other, and all laughing like idiots.
As we approached the house, I sensed Caspian's party animal side clawing to be released as I observed his eyes fall onto the group of girls that were flirtatiously batting their eyelashes directly at him. I giggled, it was so obvious that he was into them.
They were all wearing stringy tank tops, the shortest shorts possible and a pound of makeup that looked like it was smeared onto their faces by a monkey. It was nearly sixty degrees, how are they not a frozen popsicle? But overall, they reminded me of circus clowns, funny looking with the fake appearance of a cheerful person.
"Hey Caspian! Come here for a sec!" The ringleader of their group yelled across the lawn. I thought I recognized her as Amanda Dielet, a popular newbie in school. Caspian winked at me and grinned, pulling me along with him over to the girls. I thought I noted a shining object fall out of his pocket, but before I could be sure, it disappeared.
Half-way there, I halted. "Caspian! Where're you going?" I pulled on his jacket hood. He tried shaking me off as Amanda flashed a seductive smile at him.
"Oh, I don't know Tess, maybe to enjoy myself. Stop being such a mom, will ya?" Caspian freed himself of me as Amanda strutted her way toward us.
"Why hello, Tess! I didn't know you were invited-" Amanda smirked, "-and with Caspian again, huh? You should really give him a break."
I rolled my eyes at her obvious hint of 'just go away already.'
"At least desperate isn't stamped across my forehead." I snuffed and crossed my arms with smug confidence. Caspian elbowed me in the stomach.
"So Caspian!" She turned her attention back to him. "Let's go inside, everyone's being such a drag." She sighed. Clutching onto Caspian's arm, she tugged him across the brick pathway and into the ruined house.
"Wait, Tess! What're you going to do?" Caspian questioned as Amanda skimmed a well-manicured finger down his back.
I conveyed a forced smile to reassure Caspian and with one last tug, he disappeared.
I stood there astonished and recapped what I had witnessed in the first five minutes. My classmates are dead drunk, my entire body is uncomfortably numb, and my best friend is being hauled away by a she-devil. What an evening.
