“I like to watch SpongeBob in my underwear” A voice whispered into my ear, I turned around to find Luke Horner grinning like a little kid, who just got some candy. I just giggled at him, he had obviously been drinking a lot. I went to walk away, when he grabbed my arm and pulled me back. “Come on Grace, you don’t like SpongeBob?” He was struggling to stand up by himself.
“Luke, you’re pretty drunk” I said, taking a sip of my own alcoholic drink. The Vamps came through the speakers pretty loud, and I just smiled with happiness. I started moving my hips to the beat of the music, putting my drink down on the side.
“Grace, can we dance?” He asked me, holding his hand out for me to take. I took it in response and giggled again. He spun me around in a circle, and then just started moving out of beat, to the music. You could say he looked a bit crazy, but I liked that. It just proved he didn’t care what other think, or that he is just super drunk. I decided that I was going to dance silly along with him.
Luke’s a great guy. I met him almost 4 years ago, when he used to be friends with my brother. I say used to, because well they don’t talk anymore. Josh, my brother, he kind of went off the rails a little a year back, and tried taking Luke with him. I can understand why Luke didn’t want to get involved with all the drugs my brother was into, and so from then on they haven’t spoken. I, on the other hand, still talk to Luke regularly. He’s a great friend, and a good guy to talk to. And I cannot forget how he acts when he gets drunk. He’s fully aware of what he is doing, he just likes to mess about. There isn’t much harm to any of it, so I just let him carry on, even if he is 25 years old.
Luke took hold of my waste, bringing me close to him as we danced. I didn’t mind that we danced close, I actually kind of liked it. The feeling of being so close, it almost felt good. He started whispering in my ear, telling me how beautiful I looked tonight. And then he told me how he chooses me. At first I didn’t really get it, it took me a while to figure out that I was wearing a Squirtle crop top.
“I think we should have one my drink, and then head out of this place” I nodded to Luke in agreement and followed him to the bar. He took hold of my hand, to make sure he didn’t lose me in the crowd. He order us both a drink, as we waited we didn’t really say much. He pushed my hair behind my ear at my point, and told me how he wanted to see my pretty blue eyes. I looked to the floor, feeling a little shy.
After getting our drinks we went back onto the dance floor, and we just started dancing some more. We were careful not to spill our drinks. After finishing my drink I put it down. Luke took my hand, bringing me real close to him. For a few moments we just stared at each other, and then his lips crashed down onto mine. I was a little shocked at first, but as soon I realised what was happening I kissed him back.
Luke pulled back, “So baby, can we dance?” he asked, winking at me, as another Vamps song came on, this time the song was ‘Can we dance’.
