-How about a post-christmas party? Some of the boys have joined forces to supply the the party with all the basics. Since the normal party spot (the woods) is currently being avoided it will be held in the senior dormitory that is a ways away from the campus so lets hope no one snitches.
My first real party at Thorton. It was full of drugs and drinks and beautiful people and they were playing good music. Perfect.
Since my Christmas Eve was pretty lonely and depressing, I decided that I would go to that party and have some cheering up.
So, there I was. The senior dormitory was bigger than ours. It was decorated with christmas lights and there was a creepy santa toy with a penis drawn on his face.
I looked around, trying to find someone I knew. Loren. She had also just arrived and was looking around. I walked towards her.
"Hey", I said, smiling.
"Hi, Esbedi!", she said, smiling back, "having fun?"
"Oh, I just got here", I said, "Haven't even got a drink yet"
"Hmm, let's change that, then", she took my hand and led me to the drinks table. We helped ourselves and, suddenly, I was dying to dance.
"Let's go!", I said to Loren, pointing at the dancefloor. She seemed hesitant.
"Yeah, why not?", she said, and there we went.
We met Penny on the way. She seemed a little displaced and concerned.
"Penny, why don't you dance with us?", I said.
"Hmm no, thanks, I'm fine.", she said.
"Are you alright?, Penny?", asked Loren.
"Y-yes! Really, there's no need to worry."
"Ok", Loren said, smiling sympathetically.
At the dancefloor, we saw Anya. I was still kinda angry with her, but, well, it was a party and I was getting relaxed.
"Look who it is", she said, looking at the me with triumph and smiling, "the girl who was knocked out because of an imaginary monster! Tought you'd be scared of coming to the party"
"Ha-ha, very funny, Anya. But today I just wanna have fun, thank you very much."
"Ok", she said, still smiling, "let's dance, then."
The three of us started dancing. After 30 fun minutes, I got really tired and decided to have a break. I went back to the drinks table, looking around to see if I could find Penny, but she wasn't anywhere in my sight. When I was choosing my drink, a guy came next to me, smiling.
"Hello", he said.
"Hi", I said, suspicious. It wasn't very usual, guys coming to me like that.
"You look very pretty today, junior. What's your name?"
"Thanks. I'm Alice", I said, smiling back. The guy was really cute, with brown curly hair and beautiful green eyes.
"Like Alice in Wonderland?", he asked.
"So... Alice. Would you like to come with me to Wonderland?"
"What?", I said, laughing.
"It's not what you think, I'm not that rushed.", he said.
"What is it, then?"
"You'll find out... but only if you come with me.", he offered me his hand.
I'll never know why, but I took it. That night, I would follow Anya's advice and believe that the monster didn't exist. He was leading me to the door.
"Wait, what's your name? You didn't tell me.", I said.
"Well, you didn't ask", he said, smiling, "I'm Kyle."
"Esbedi!", somebody was screaming my name. I looked back. It was Lorna, running towards me with Anya right behind her.
"Something wrong?", I asked.
"No, we were just checking if you hadn't fainted or something.", Anya said, laughing. I ignored her and looked at Loren.
"You didn't come back to the dancefloor and we went looking for you. Wait, where are you going?", she seemed to have noticed Kyle for the first time.
"And who's your friend?", said Anya, raising an eyebrow, looking directly at him.
"Hello, I'm Kyle. I was just taking her somewhere... And we're sort of in a hurry, so if you'll excuse us", he said, pulling my hand.
I looked behind me, at Loren and Anya. "Sorry!", I yelled. Before I could look at them again, Kyle took me out of the party.
"That wasn't very polite, y'know?", I said. He looked at me.
"Where are you taking me?"
"I told you", he said, "You'll find out."
We entered the woods.
"Are you gonna use me to feed the monster?", I joked. He laughed.
"Shit, how did you know?!"
"I just assumed...", I said. We laughed.
We got in a small clearing. There was a large tree with "kill" written on it. "Today, you don't believe in the rumours. It's only a prank", I thought to myself.
"Here we are!", he said, sitting on the floor.
"I remember Wonderland very differently", I said, sitting by his side.
"Ok, this is a fake Wonderland. But I don't see any problems here, since you're not even Alice, Esbedi.", he said, nudging me with his elbow.
"Ok, sorry", I said, playing with a dry twig that I found on the floor, "I don't know why I said that."
"I forgive you", he said, coming closer. Our faces were and inch apart from each other.
"Good", I whispered, looking into his green eyes.
We kissed. And kissed. And kissed. I'm not sure of how long we spent kissing, but it's not like I care.
When we stopped, he lit a cigarette and passed it to me. None of us said anything. We just kept smoking and staring at the word "kill", written on the tree in front of us. Finally, Kyle said:
"Do you believe it?", he pointed at the tree.
"I'm still here, aren't I?"
"Yes", he smiled and kissed me again. I shivered.
"It's getting very cold in here", I said, "I think we should get back."
"Ok", he said, getting up and giving me a hand.
He took me to the junior dormitory. We said goodnight and I watched him go away before entering my room.
