9. The Escape


The bartender slid a glass over to me and I took a sip. It wasn’t the best tasting but I decided to drink it. “I am almost positive I will be drunk by the end of the night.” I said. The cute bartender chuckled. When he laughed his dirty blonde hair even curlier then Harry’s shook. His tan skin glowed and he looked about 18 or 19.

“American huh?” He said in an Australian accent.

“Australian huh?” I shot back.

“Yeah I moved here last year for university.” He said. Oh a college guy. “My name is Cullen.” He said extending his hand out. I shook it.

“Hi I am Lena. I just got here actually today.” I said. The thought that I just moved here from America made my stomach drop. “Hey can I have another one of those?” I asked chugging my first drink. Cullen nodded and fixed me up a drink. I chugged the shot glass. “Why am I not drunk yet?” I ask Cullen.

“Because your drink is virgin.” He said putting his elbow on the bar and looking at me. “Lena, I have been working here for almost a year now, I can tell a fake I.D.”

“Psh what are you talking about?” I say. My voice got extremely high. Crap, whenever I lie my voice tends to get really high.

“I understand, you just want to be grown up.” Cullen said cleaning the counter where a drunk girl spilled her margarita.

“Oh and how old are you exactly?” I ask Cullen.


“How old do you think I am.” I said looking straight into his eyes. I hate being called a child.

Cullen stared into my eyes. “Hmmm.” His brown eyes looked beautiful and his long blonde lashes bounced when he blinked. “I don’t know you seem mature like mentally like you have been through a lot, but physically you seem 17 maybe almost 18?”

“I wish, I will be 17 soon.” I said. He looked shocked, as if I was way older.

“Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone that you snuck in here, I use to do it all the time when I was a kid. My shift is done right…now.” Cullen says looking at the fancy clock on the wall,

“I’m not a kid.” I remind him. He grins at me and winks. “It was nice meeting you.”

“You too Lena.” He said and smiled. He grabbed his coat and keys from behind the counter and started to walk away. Then I remembered no one was allowed to leave still. I decided that Cullen is my ticket out.

          “Wait Cullen!” I yell. He turns around and I walk to him. “Hey can you do me a favor?”




As Cullen and I walked towards the club exit he showed security his I.D. that he works here.

“Wait, Cully, you are actually brining a girl home for once?” One of the security guards said.

“Yup, she’s super drunk.”  Cullen said looking at me. I dropped my shoulders and looked around like I was lost. I have no fucking idea how to act drunk.

“Okay, well do her well boy.” The other bouncer said patting Cullen’s back. He fake smiled and we walked out.

“Thank you.” I whispered. We walked to his car about a block away and I asked him if I could barrow his cell phone. I took the piece of paper out of my bag with Harry’s number on it and dialed.

“Hello?” Harry said.

“Hey it’s Lena.”

“Lena! Are you still at the club, they won’t let us back into get you. Are you okay? Are you hurt?” Harry said.

“I’m fine, I just lost you guys when we were running out of the club, but I am out now and I am on ummm…” I look at the street sign and tell him what street I am on.

“Ok we are coming to get you now.” Harry said.

“Ok thanks, tell Louis I am okay.”

“Will do, see you soon.” Harry said and hung up. I handed back the phone to Cullen.

“Thank you for everything.” I said gratefully.

“No problem, but Lena who were you talking to? Were you talking to that band that had to run out of the club? Are you with them?” Cullen asked looking confused.

I sigh, “Cullen, it is kind of complicated,”

Cullen looked up and grabbed my hand gently and gave me a little smile, “Well maybe you can give me your number so we can talk again?” What? Was this boy, no I mean sexy hot man trying to ask me out? No one has ever tried to ask me out.

“Yeah, sure.” I said smiling biting my lip. I gave him Harry’s phone number since I don’t have a phone yet. “Here call me on this number, but when I get home I will add you on Facebook.”

“Cool.” Cullen said smiling.

“Cool.” I said smiling not to know what to say back. Out of nowhere Louis pulled up. “I will talk to you later.” I said as I got into the car. “Good bye.”

“Bye.” Cullen said one last time waving.  I turn around to face the boys.

“Oh hey…” I say awkwardly.

“Who was that?” Harry said looking really angry. What the fuck? Why did he look so pissed?

“That was Cullen, don’t worry he is cool, he helped me out. I was going to call you guys but I had no cellphone.” I said.

“Which we are fixing!” Louis said cutting in. “You are getting one tomorrow.”

“No really I am fine.” I said.

“No, we are.” Louis said.

“Fine.” I said fighting with Louis. I turned to Harry and he was looking at me. I raised my eyebrows questioning what he was doing. He just turned away and looked out the window. He looked sad. I have no idea why he was being all moody.

“Well Len, you better not tell Mum about this.” Louis said.

“No problem Lou.” I said sighing and putting my headphones in for the rest of the ride home.
