Cocktails and Cigarettes

When Bethany has relationship problems, she finds comfort in going to clubs and drinking. So what happened when she begins to shadow Lou Teasdale? Will her and Harry hit it off, or will she push him away because the cocktails and cigarettes bring her more comfort? *Includes self harm references/actions, cursing, sex, smoking, and alcohol*

When I got into styling class, I took my seat between Melanie and Jesse. Prof. Hall was sitting at her desk taking attendance, making us all wait longer than we wanted.

“Okay, so as you all know, you are getting a project today. This project will last the whole semester. You will be assigned a stylist and you will follow them around. You have this week to research them and who they work for. As of Monday, you will be excused from school to meet up with them. After that, they will call you when they need you. You are required to do whatever they say; whether it is food shopping to babysitting for them…you do it without pay. At the end of the semester, your stylist, you, and I will all meet up for evaluation. We will go over everything you’ve discovered and you must make a PowerPoint about it to present to the class.”

“How long does the PowerPoint need to be?”

“As long as it needs to be; it just needs to answer all the questions on the sheet I handed back.”

“Are we allowed to pick our stylist?”

“No, you will pick them from a hat. Once you picked the name, you must say it for everyone to hear and write it down so you remember. Shall we?” Everyone started nervously moving around in their seats. I was in the middle of the room, so it would be a few people until I was able to pick. “Bethany, here you go.” I reached my hand in the hat and started fumbling with papers before I finally grabbed one.

“Lou Teasdale.” I said.

“LUCKY BITCH!” Jesse yelled, making everyone laugh, including me.

“Jesse, watch the language. And aren’t you lucky, working with one of the biggest boy bands stylist?” I nodded in disbelief. I wrote her name at the top of my paper and zoned out for the rest of class.

The rest of school was dragging on too. I thought this was all too weird to me. The fact that I picked Lou Teasdale was just too weird for me. Harry likes me, I like him but I’m not admitting it to anyone, and now I get to follow Lou Teasdale around for the semester- what the hell are the odds?

When I got home, I went right up to my apartment. I changed into sweatpants and a tank top, made myself some tea, and opened up my laptop. I started my research on Lou Teasdale. I did work on her for a few hours before starting on my regular homework.
