Annie was not having a great night. It was another one of Liam's friend's college raves at some random mansion out of town and she was wondering how she was going to survive it. Liam treated them like they were no big deal and weren't draining. She didn't know raves were so nonchalant and not to mention dramatic.
She hated being such a tag along but it felt that way for the last few times she came with Liam. She wasn't much of a drinker or loud party animal; it wasn't like she could add anything to the crowds. Not that she had a boring personality, they just weren't her thing.
Drinking always made her sleepy anyway, she didn't really need it but she wanted to forget the night, go home and relax from all this excitement. Of course Liam's friends were living it up while the lone American girl sat on the sidelines being a "prude" or so they thought of her. One thing Annie was not was a prude. She and Liam hadn't been intimate for a while but this was both of their faults. She didn't expect college life to be as monotonous as it was.
Annie sifted through the pot smoke-filled crowd of the house, trying to find the bathroom. This would have been her in high school, things haven't changed much. She needed to breathe from all the crazy claustrophobic atmosphere; even though going to the bathroom was the worst because loads of drugs came in and out of there, let alone, it is still a bathroom so the smell was apparent, it was still the safest place she could think of now. Her makeshift escape until Liam finally realized she was gone.
She didn't want to hitch a ride, Liam would get worried and she didn't want to bother him as he's always the man of the hour at these parties so her best bet was to sulk and sit through it somewhere private where she can lock the door in peace or just take a long nap, whichever came first.
As soon as she reached the door leading to the bathroom she tried to avoid the make out sessions around her, it looked like they'd just met each other too. Not Annie's style. Why couldn't she have just said no this time? Not this night. Watching everyone else enjoy themselves wasn't something she wanted to continue doing.
As she entered the bathroom and closed the door behind, she leaned her body against it. A loud thump shook the door and she jumped up with her eyes wide open.
She heard voices outside which were piercing as the music blared in the background. It was hard to really talk at these kinds of things. It's no different than going to a concert and screaming at the top of your lungs or being around people who do. Liam was just as loud as the rest; strangely he was so quiet when they are together. Being the girlfriend of the man of the hour had major responsibility apparently. Annie didn't know all the things that came with being in a relationship almost felt like she had to accompany him wherever he went publicly. She didn't want to let him down so she went, against her own volition.
She peeled her body off the door and walked over to the bath tub and sat on the edge. The coolness of the ceramic chilled the backs of her legs. She grabbed the towel hanging off the side and laid it inside of the inner lining of the tub. She slipped off her flats and climbed inside, trying to relax. The party was still too loud but she tried her best. She didn't want to sleep because there was no way that was going to happen realistically but she still wanted a bit of peace if she could get it.
Maybe escaping out the window was her best bet. She looked to it for another idea when the door suddenly flung open and shut with a slam.
