I came home to an empty apartment. As I was grabbing a snack from the pantry I noticed a note on the counter. It was from Amanda who was one of my really good roommates.
Her and Elizabeth who was my other roommate took me under their wing last semester when the other girls I was supposed to get an apartment with bailed on me at the last minute. After reading the note I threw it in the trash. It just said they were out getting groceries and that they would be back soon.
I went in my room and locked the door. "Finally time to relax." I said to myself as I flopped down on the bed.
I took my phone out and pulled up my contacts. I clicked on Kyle West's name and pushed the FaceTime button. Kyle was my boyfriend. We met my junior year of high school. We've been dating for awhile now.
He was my favorite person in the world.
As soon as his face popped up on the screen I noticed his brown hair.
"Hey gorgeous." He said smiling.
I blew him a kiss. "Hey."
"How was school?" He looked into the camera.
"It was stressful as always." I said playing with my hair.
"Anything interesting happen?"
"No, not really. Oh, wait I did get invited to a party." I said remembering the piece of paper in my pocket.
"Oh that sounds fun. Are you going to go?"
"I don't know. Maybe"
"This will be your first party if you go."
"I know. I'm kind of nervous."
"Don't worry it's nothing scary. Just a couple of drugs and wasted kids."
My eyes widened.
"I'm kidding," he said once he saw my reaction.
"I mean it's a college party...there's going to be something crazy there." He finished.
"I need to stay away from things like that." I said.
"Just because you're a Christian doesn't mean you can't have fun." He laughed.
"I know, but I can't be around drugs and alcohol. That's to much."
He rolled his pretty hazel eyes. "You worry to much. I think you should just go and have fun."
"Now that you mentioned DRUGS I'm not sure I want to go anymore." I said putting emphasis on the word drugs.
He rolled his eyes again and smiled. "It was a joke Sunny."
"I think I'll go."
"This will be the perfect opportunity to get out of your shell and make new friends."
"I wish you could come." I said with a sad face.
"I know. I wish I could be there for your first party."
"What are you doing for the rest of the night?"
"Probably gonna hang with the boys."
"Tell Ethan and Cory I said hey."
Ethan and Cory were his best friends. I met them a couple months ago when I went to visit Kyle in Florida.
"Will do," he said.
"Well I've got a lot of homework I still need to do, so I'll talk to you later?"
"Sounds good. Love you bye."
"Love you too." I screamed into the phone.
I heard him laugh before hanging up.
I got up from the bed and went over to my study desk. I put Spotify on before I set my phone aside. I grabbed my school bag from the ground and put it on the desk. When I pulled out my copy of Romeo and Juliet from the bag a piece of paper fell out. I picked the paper up and realized it was a list of directions as I read through it. As I reread the part where it said we needed a partner I thought about Roxanne.
If I was going to need a partner for this project it was going to have to be Roxanne because I didn't really know anyone else in that class. I was also to shy to ask anyone else to be my partner. I put the paper back in the book before closing it and putting it back in my book bag. I pulled out the text books from my other classes and began doing my homework.
When I was finished with my homework I went in my closet and began looking for an outfit to wear to the party. I spent ten minutes looking and trying to decide what to wear before I finally decided on some jean shorts and a black tank top. After picking out my outfit I went to the bathroom and took a shower. Once I was done taking a shower I dried myself off. I took my time getting ready.
I had just finished doing my hair and makeup when Amanda came knocking on the bathroom door. "Hey Liz and I are going to watch a movie. Do you want to join us?"
"I can't I'm going out with some friends." I said opening the door.
I didn't even know if I could really call Roxanne a friend right now. I barely knew her, but I didn't know what else to say so I just stuck with that.
Amanda's mouth dropped open when she saw me. "Where are you going looking like that?"
"A party!" I said cheerfully.
Her eyes widened in shock. "Since when do Sunny and party go together?"
I laughed. "You're funny."
"No seriously you don't do parties. I've been trying to get you to go to one since the day I met you." She wasn't the only one who's tried to get me to go to a party. Back in high school Kyle would try, but he too would fail. I don't know why, but I didn't like parties. I felt like it was a very easy way to sin and get into trouble. And the last thing I wanted to do was be on God's bad side. The only parties that I've been to were birthday parties when I was younger. "So who's the lucky person that gets to take you to your first college party?" I knew she would object if I told her that the person was Roxanne and that I barley knew her so I just said, "It's a friend from my science class. You don't know her."
"Okay," she said satisfied with my answer.
"Can I borrow your car for the night?" I asked hoping she'd say yes.
"Okay, but if anything happens to Rose I'm killing you." She said referring to her car. I followed her to the kitchen. "Take good care of her." She said grabbing the car keys from the counter and handing them to me.
"Where is she going?" Liz asked no one in particular.
"A party...can you believe it?" Amanda said.
"What? Where? When?" Liz said changing her position on the couch.
"Now." I said slipping out the door before she could ask anymore questions.
