Jamie walked out of his bedroom and into the garage, grimacing at the sight of the pile of empty beer bottles scattered around the house. Dad’s been drinking again, he thought bitterly to himself. Jamie still didn’t understand why his dad kept slowly killing himself by drowning himself in alcohol, and he didn’t understand why his mom had to leave. It was one incident, an accident. It was just one whole big mistake, and it tore his whole family apart. He wasn’t mad at his sister Laney for causing it, just disappointed that she had made a bad choice and that she didn’t realize how it affected everyone. Jamie realized he was getting distracted, and shook his head in attempt to bring himself back down to Earth. Focus, Jamie. You need to pick up Alexa from the lake.
He sauntered into the garage, and Jamie picked up his car keys on the kitchen table on the way over. He started his old, dirty car that he had managed to buy off his neighbor when he had saved up enough money from work, and Jamie hesitated before he backed the car up. Jamie didn’t even know why he was picking up Alexa from the lake; he barely knew her and they had only talked once, but he a tiny voice in his head told him that it wasn’t exactly the reason why. Jamie shrugged it off, and decided that he thought it would be the nice thing to do. He backed the car up, and drove over to the lake. As he got nearer and nearer to the lake where the party was, he could see beer bottles and clothes scattered all around the roads. Jamie scrunched his nose in disgust at the site.
Jamie had finally arrived to the area where the party had been, and there was no sight of Alexa. He had looked around all the bushes around the area he was in, but he couldn’t find her. He began to call her name out, hoping that she would respond. “Alexa!” He shouted repeatedly. He began to walk around, searching all the other bushes. It was until he caught sight of a pair of feet that he had found her. He ran over to the bush, seeing Alexa half-sleeping in the bush, her make-up smudged and her clothes torn up. Jamie’s eyes widened in shock at her appearance, surprised at how different she looked from her clean, fancy clothing she always wore at school. “Jesus, you look like a hot mess. Let’s get you out of here.” Jamie reached down to pick her up, but decided not to because she’d probably demand to get put down. He gave her a hand to grab to help her up, raising an eyebrow in expectation.
Yeah…you really didn’t miss anything. A lot hype for a whole lot of nothing. You should go sometime it’s great! Well with friends down there you could probably stay with them and save some money by getting a hotel room right? Oh that would be so much fun…I don’t know though.
That kinda sucks. Well, at least I didn’t go. Hopefully, it wasn’t too much of a waste of time for you? My friends tell that to me all the time. That’s a pretty good idea, actually! I hadn’t even thought about it until you mentioned it. Come on, you totally should. You can get away from this place for a while, and you wouldn’t have to deal with all the drama around here.
You know I would think that too…but he never showed up to the party. You do?! Have you ever been down there? My dad got re-located here.
Really? I wouldn’t know, I didn’t go. People are saying it was shit, though. Unfortunately I haven’t, but it seems awesome. I’ll probably go there over the summer if I can save enough money for it. Really? Well, maybe you and Leo should go to Texas for spring break or something.
Obviously I’m not his type if this is true. Thanks! I am from Texas love it down there!
Ha, he was probably drunk at the party when he said that. I heard that Texas is a nice place to live in; I actually have two friends who live there, haha. So, why’d you move to Wisconsin?
