6. Chapter Five
It's already 5:45 which means I should probably start getting ready for the party soon. I put on a bit more eyeliner than I would usually and curl my eyelashes. I take a look in the mirror and don't recognize this girl standing in front of me. I look different, yet again. But this time I look sexy? I'm not sure all I know is that I've never felt like that before. I pull out a pair of jeans that are a bit too tight but show off my legs and ass well, and I put on a low cut tanktop with lace in the back. I don't want to dress slutty but I also don't want to look like a prude. I throw on some plain black converse and look at myself in the mirror again before grabbing my purse and putting a few things I may need in there. My purse also matches my outfit, matching the black material of the tanktop and some studs on it which gives it a little but of uniqueness.
By the time In ready to head out the door it's 7:00. And I forgot I should be waiting for Hilary, after all we are driving together. She re-applies some mascara and then slips into her dress she was talking about. It's a lot more revealing than anything I would wear, short with no sleeves and goes up to her collarbones. It's a green/blue kind of colour, and I have to admit it ties in with her hair very nicely.
We leave the dorm and start walking toward her car. It's a cheap car which is typical for a college student, mine will probably look about the same. He seats are cold on my bare back and I'm happy I brought a hoodie with me.
I'm completely unfamiliar with this area, but Hilary seems to know where she is going. As we pull into a parking spot I see the big frat houses. I guess we are going to a frat party? Doesn't really seen like her crowd but honestly I know nothing about college. As we walk in the door I see Louis drinking with a couple guys I don't know and two girls wearing really short skirts and a skanky tanktop. They are both blonde and look annoying. As we continue to push our way through the crowd, I see Niall. He waves at us go come over and we do as he says. "Hey guys! Alice, you look, well, uhm beautiful." He says and I see his cheeks flush. "Thank you Niall." I say. Usually I would fight the compliment saying, 'your lying' or 'that's not true' but tonight I feel confident. Niall leads us to the rest of the group,and I can already spot Zayn's hair. I feel butterflies but remind myself not to be nervous.
"Hey guys, what's up?" Liam asks
"Just at a party with some weird guys" Hilary answers sarcastically. I wish I had her confidence. Niall hasn't stopped looking at me since I arrived, and I have to admit it's making me pretty uncomfortable, although he is pretty adorable.. Zayn walks over to me and says "Hey, um, Alice would you like a drink?" He scratches the back of his neck again, a nervous twitch I suppose. "Sure" I reply and smile. When I smile I can see the relief in his eyes and his shoulders drop.As me and Zayn and heading through the crowd, a couple of drunk guys bump in to me and pushes me onto the ground with him on top of me. I try to push him off but he's too drunk to notice. Zayn grabs the guy by the shirt and pulls him off me. "Thanks" I say while wiping off the beer he had spilt. "Yeah, if anything like that happens just let me know" he answers. The crowd seems to be getting thicker and thicker and I guess we are thinking the same thing because he grabs my hand and pulls me close to him. I grab his arm in an effort to let him know I'm thankful.
