He’s at a party.
He’s at a party and the room is full of so much smoke, it’s turned into claws of smog that pick and scratch and burn at his eyes. When he blinks he can feel each eyelash against his cheek and thinks that maybe this is what it is to be high as a kite.
And there’s a girl beside him. She’s cute and her hair is too red to have come from anywhere other than a bottle, but it’s still soft and it tickles when she crawls into his lap and kisses him.
He doesn’t even know her and they’re in a room full of people, some watching them and some too busy with their own conquests to care.
FFFFFFFFFFFFFFF this was all kinds of wonderful.
