My body glided across the dance floor moving in ways I had no idea were possible. If I weren’t intoxicated right now then surely this would never happen. It wasn’t my first time drinking, I had done it before just never Haseena. Sometimes it was the best feeling in the world. Forgetting about everything, falling loose, leaving your troubles in a different world—it all came part of the full package.
I could hear several people cheering me on as I danced with a boy whose name I couldn’t even remember. The cries of others got me more pumped and ready for more things. However before I could continue I felt a tug on my hands spinning me around to face two beautiful green eyes glaring at me.
“Agustina,” Ashton growled.
“Oh hello there,” I slurred giggling.
“What do you think you’re doing?” He asked. The tone of his voice continuing to be harsh but I wasn’t going to let it bother me.
“Well as you can see, I’m trying to dance with…” I turned around to look at the boy who was gaping at Ashton exasperatingly. His name still hadn’t come to my mind.
“Are you drunk?” Ashton questioned coming to closer to smell my breath. His grip around my arm tightened as he got more and furious.
“That’s for me to know and you to find out.” I winked. Before I knew it I was being dragged away from the dance floor, nevertheless; I wasn’t leaving without a fight.
“Let go of me!” I shrieked as I punched his chest. He didn’t listen, I could feel many people staring at us but I continued to keep my eyes on him.
“Agustina, you’re inebriated, we have to get you out of here.” He said as he came closer to me. His voice was quiet—loud enough for only me to hear.
“I don’t want to go! I’m having fun finally!” I snarl at him. Ashton just stares at me trying to read the emotions on my face.
“This isn’t what you call fun. You’re just dancing with boys whose name you can’t even remember or know. Just stop it all.”
I scoff at his reply. “Wow, I can’t believe you just said that.” He stares at me curiously. “You’re the one who’s kissing, talking and coquetting with other girls, and here you are telling me I should stop?” I pulled away from him and held my ground on my own two feet. The world felt a little tipsy however
“Are you jealous?” I heard him ask out of gratification. More anger rushed through me, I couldn’t even take it so instantly I jolted away from him, walking towards the doors leading me out.
God, he didn’t have any right to talk to me like that. Who did he think he was? I continued to grumble about him until I saw a silver Volvo standing in front of me. I knew exactly who it began to and let me tell you, I was way too inebriated to care.
It didn’t take long for me to get comfortable. I climbed up the roof up the car, up to the window shield and lay down, resting one of my hands over my head and the other on my waist. After taking a couple of minutes to stare up at the sky, I closed my eyes.
“I’m guessing you’re comfortable.” I heard him mumble.
“Yes I am.” I said sitting up to greet him.
“What are you doing out here?” He asked, I saw him fondling with the cup in his fingers.
“Tired, just wanted to get away from the whole scene.” I replied. “What about you? Your friend was looking for you.”
He looked towards the ground and then back up at me. Within seconds he was up on the car, sitting beside me. “Yeah, well I kind of ruined our friendship.” He said embarrassed.
“I thought it was already ruined?”
His green eyes shot up at me, making my insides melt solemnly. I felt different all of a sudden and I didn’t know why. Maybe the alcohol was getting to me too soon.
“So,” He said, taking a sip of his drink and swallowing the bitter liquid before he could gag.“Do you have any plans for the winter break?”
“I’m going to be going skiing with the family again.”
“At the cabin?”
I laughed.“My parents love that place.I don’t get it.”
“At least you’ll be somewhere warm and cozy.”
“Exactly!Besides, I love being with the family.” I smiled.
He smiled and stared into my big hazel eyes.His dark eyelashes framed his almond shaped eyes perfectly but there was a hint of sadness behind them that he couldn’t hide.
“Well this night isn’t so bad, is it?” He asked.
“I guess not,” I agreed, taking another gulp of my drink.He looked behind me to where other couples were sitting, their heads together and smiling and whispering about surreptitious things.
“Can I ask you something?” He wondered aloud. I nodded hesitantly. “Why do you hate me?”
I shrugged. “I don’t even have a good reason for that. I mean ever since Gr. 7, after you continued to pick on me—it just started to build up.” I answered truthfully.
“I didn’t mean to pick on you; it just came out like that.” He chuckled. “Besides, I’m sorry. Really, I know how much annoyance I must have brought you.” I heard him apologize. Once again the feeling rose through me.
I pulled his head down to my, our lips just barely touching.But in that moment, all I could think about was Ashton.Was he watching me?Did he care that I was kissing another boy? Without even thinking, he pulled me close and crushed his lips against mine.I could feel him smiling against my mouth as his hands moved across my back, became tangled in my hair and pulled me closer still.
I woke up that night with a long yawn along with a smile bouncing at my lips. I had no idea as to why I was so happy, but just let it continue on. I stood and looked towards the ground of the room just to see a white summer dress lying in its mistaken place.
At a leisurely pace I walked towards the dress bending over and picking it up carelessly. I felt the smell roam through my nose making a statement within my mind. That was when all the memories ran through me, making me remember exactly what happened.
Well at least one of the main things. I had kissed Lucas!?
