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 we got back to England, it was a Friday. After I was dropped off, I called Bradie and we met at a bar. We were sitting on the bar stools taking shots as I told her about the trip.

“Wow… so Simon doesn’t like it? That only puts more pressure on you since you technically intern for them for the semester.”

“I know. It makes everything so much worse.”

“Are you going to stay with him?” I shrugged and took down another shot.

“I don’t know. I mean, he’s great and all but he gives me the same feelings cocktails and cigarettes give me.”

“Yeah but the alcohol and nicotine buzz wear off…love doesn’t.”

“Love is a strong word. I’m not capable of feeling love towards anyone.”

“But you care for Harry, right?”

“Of course I do.”

“Then why would you re4place him for something that only helps temporarily?”

“I never said I was leaving him, I just don’t want Simon up my ass.”

“Has he been up your ass about Harry before?”

“No but he’s up Harry’s.”

“I picked that up…”

“Yeah well…I just can’t handle it too much. You know how I work with pressure in my personal life.”

“Yeah, not well. I’m sure you’ll pull through and Simon will loosen up.”

“If you say so…”

“I do. As much as I would love to stay and get drunk with you, I have places to be tomorrow so I’m going to go. Love you babe.”

“Love you too.” I said as I kissed her cheek. She waved goodbye to me as she walked out. I turned back to the bartender and asked for another round. Here we were…back to the daily routine of drinking and smoking my life away; like nothing ever happened between Harry and I.
