You swore that after parties were always crazier than the actual event. People become pissed as nits, spewing and dancing like teenagers at a highschool party. You were sober, not wanting to have to deal with the chaotic hangover on the flight home tomorrow morning.
From where you were sitting, you could see many things. Your best friend and her boyfriend, being less than appropriate on the dance floor, probably scarring half the people. A random woman singing extremely loudly with the music, making you wonder if she took some drugs beforehand to get some sort of buzz happening. A group of friends having the time of their life, dancing to the music like ordinary people. You then realised who you wanted to hang out with.
You stood up from your seat at the booth, not really caring if people took your seat, you were probably going to go home soon anyways. You were about half way to the toilet when you were stopped. You spun around to see a man, visibly drunk, also visibly drooling over you. He wiped his face coolly, trying to seem suave. He was not suave. “Hey; wanna fu-“
The man was suddenly lead away by a tall woman, and another man appeared in front of you. He was way more well dressed, as well as sober. “I’m sorry about him. I don’t know how long he’s been walking around for, but he’s trouble when he’s drunk.” Your eyes widened at his British accent; you were not expecting that. The other man was American. The man sounded extremely apologetic as he spoke, his eyebrows furrowed. “It’s ok,” you sighed, “I was going to the toilet and then leaving anyways. My job here is done.” He was confused. “I did a lot of the sound technology for the award show, and I only came here to laugh at how drunk people can get in a small amount of time.” You said, shrugging your shoulders. The man was extremely surprised.
“Well, let me tell you- you did an amazing job!” He cooed, placing a hand on your shoulder. He smiled warmly at you, and you smiled back.
The two of you continued to talk for a while, completely forgetting about your need to go to the toilet and leave. •MORE IN COMMENTS•
