1. Chapter 1

The smoke caught my lungs and lingered there causing me to sit up abruptly. As I took in my surroundings I realised I was butt naked in a foreign room – not somewhere I recognised. “Shit.” I whispered as I snatched the blanket that was draped over me and wrapped it around me. “Shit, shit, Shit!” I repeated again, a little louder this time. I was alone in the room but that left the thick cloud of smoke that hovered above my head unexplained. My clothes from the previous night were strewn across the room. I shifted my body from the bed, allowing myself to gather my belongings: putting them on one by one. I picked up the knickers I had been wearing – feeling incredibly dirty for wearing them unclean - then my bra, which allowed me to drop the blanket. At that moment a small frail woman walked into the room I was standing in trying to gather my bearings. “Oh sorry dear,” she proclaimed as I felt a single tear escape from my eye. She turned and walked away but I wanted to call out to her. Jack’s t-shirt was lying in a heap on the floor and, suddenly, I was engulfed by an event from the previous night. This wasn’t his house and we argued the night before. God, I hoped I hadn’t done something reckless – that I would regret. I pulled the large ‘star wars’ t-shirt over my head and rolled up the right sleeve that had unraveled. My high wasted Levi denim shorts were on the neck of a guitar in the corner of the room. My old style American apparel white socks with blue stripes around the top were together at the bottom of the bed I had previously laid in. I pulled them on over my feet before slipping into my Nike blazers, which I quickly tied and stood from the bed. My grandfather’s tartan scarf was sticking out of my bag and I quickly snatched it before holding it in to my chest tightly – then wrapping it around my neck.

         Slinging my bag over my shoulder I tried not to make any noise as I left the room. At the bottom of the stairs I locked on to the most beautifully blue eyes I had ever seen but they were all I could focus on. I couldn’t take in the rest of the face. I had seen these eyes before and I had marveled over them before. After getting over the gorgeous eyes I realised who they belonged to: my media studies teacher. He was really handsome and nearly every girl I knew had a huge crush on him. “What the fuck?!” I stated before bursting past him and out the front door. Running ahead I wasn’t exactly sure where I was going or even where I was. All I could do was run – it was the safest option for me right now. As I ran the streets seemed to get busier, my breathing more erratic and the stares became deeper. Finally, I began to gather my bearings and stop running. I sat on the steps out in front of the busy city’s theatre. I pulled the cigarette carton from my bag and popped a cigarette into my mouth lighting it with my lighter. The small cylindrical object I held in my hand soon withered away to nothing and I found myself smoking another one.  A few - what I thought were - students walked the walk of shame past me as I tried to hide myself and not allow people to make the same assumptions about me. I couldn’t bare the thought of it. I wasn’t really sure what actually happened but couldn’t even stomach the thought of it.

         When I had finally finished the cigarette I was smoking I slipped a piece of chewing gum between my lips and began chewing. In my purse, I had no money. Obviously, I had blown it all last night on getting completely inebriated. Panic drowned my body. I was 20 miles from my own house and I had no cash. Typical Violet. My phone was in the depths of my bag and after a good rummage I found it, yanking it from my bag. As I held it in my hand I realised I was shaking vigorously. There were numerous missed calls and texts but I couldn’t bear to open them thinking I would be flooded with despair. I hauled Jack’s contact details up on the bright iPhone screen contemplating whether or not he would want to speak to me in light of last night’s events – all of which were still pretty blurry in my mind. After everything we had been through I couldn’t not call him – it was jack after all. My Jack.

         “Vi, where are you?” He asked hard and fast.

“Jack… I’m so sorry.” I began to blub down the phone as my hand began to shake even more.

“Violet, I don’t care. We can sort it. I just need you to tell me where you are?” I looked around, his few simple words calming me down considerably.

“I’m in town. West end.” I spoke quietly like I was going to compromise myself.

“Where about exactly?” he asked, pressing me.

“I don’t know Jack!” I snapped at him.

“Get yourself to the Alba pub. Do you know where that is?” He asked me calmly.

“Yeah. Bye.” I said, annoyed at myself for being so blunt with him.

         I walked in the general direction of the pub, which I knew so well. Infamous for serving to underage customers it was our usual weekend hangout. As I reached the front of the all too familiar building I began to remember key events from the previous night.
