Why  was i  going to this party. I wouldn't know anyone besides katie, and I didn't even like Halloween. I glanced in the rearview mirror at my two best friends Derek and Abigail. Who are in the middle of a lively debate,on whether or not our college baseball team will make it to the playoffs. I keep my opinions to myself knowing that siding with either partieswould end up in an argument. At least this would be a good distraction from the disturbing texts I have been getting.as I pull into the driveway the setting sun casts a pink hue to the otherwise blue sky. Voices and music mix together to create a calming buzz. apprehension washes over me,as I climb out the car shaking off the shiver that runs up my spine we head inside once there we get a drink. Derek and Abigail  get there usual beer.  I stick with water.as we enter the living room. I run into Katie.she is the host of the party. Wrapping me up in a tight hug she asks are you ready for the internship? Feeling excited about the prospect of spending two months in Texas at a prestigious veterinary hospital  suddenly her bright smile dims. I look over my shoulder to see what caught her attention.I groan inwardly when I saw Sandy. Coming this way Sandy and I have been rivals since middle school. now she has her sights on my boyfriend.she never passes up an opportunity to point out my inadequacies. "Well, look who decided to 
grace us with her presence." She says. After a few tense moments and a very unpleasant exchange.Sandy finds something else to occupy her time.after saying goodbye to Katie. I go and find Abigail and Derek.all of a sudden sandy is in front of me "I see that Luke is not with you this evening." She slurs.it is obvious that she is drunk so I know that  getting in an altercation with her will not be a good idea. She sways spilling beer all over my new red silk dress. I grit my teeth it has been less than a week and my new dress is already ruined it will take me two months to pay it off.signing to myself, I head upstairs to find a bathroom.finding one  I turn on the light i dampen a wash cloth. I then start to dab at my soiled dress.out of nowhere the door slams behind me. I jerk around. My hands flying to the doorknob. I pull as hard as I can but it does not open.after a while i can finally open it. I run into the hallway my voice hoarse from screaming. As I head for the stairs I run into Sandy."Watch it" She says
I apologize under my breath and hurry down the stairs looking for Derek and Abigail so that we can leave.not finding them I decide to look in the library.because it is separated from the rest of the house no one is around .I enter and  immediately  I see  that someone is sitting at the  giant oak desk."I knew that you would eventually come here you always liked books." A familiar voice says.The shadow slowly rises.as it draws closer to the light a pair of  familiar green eyes come into"view.Luke!" What was he doing here."You couldn't just let me have the internship could you you knew how badly my dad wanted me to get it why couldn't you just leave it alone?"as he slowly advancing  I step backwards until I bump into the wall.his hands closed around my neck. "I really was starting to fall in love with you. I'm sorry."Were the last words I heard before  darkness  overtakes me  his hot breath on my cheek. "Annie! Annie! Wake up we're going to be  late for the party." I slowly open my eyebrows and look around I am in my living room on the couch where I had fallen asleepI I shake off the dream and grab my  shoes to put on. As I am leaving the house to get into the car I glance in the mirror. I'm given a jolt when I see my reflection. I'm wearing my new red silk dress. As I climb into the car I hear Derrick ask,"Do you think that the Lions will make it to the playoffs this year?".....
