'Are you actually going to go to that party?' asked Tilly. We were sitting in the Ravenclaw common room.
'I dunno. I suppose I'll have to. Someone's gotta look after Heather...and Rose.' I said. I didn't actually want to go to this stupid party. 'What about you?'
'I'll go.' said Tilly. 'Perhaps we should bring Lucy with us.'
That's when I got an idea.
'Josh?' Josh looked over at me.
'Yeah?' he asked.
'Are you going to Montosso's party?'
'He's invited me. Why?'
'No reason.' I turned back to Tilly. 'Lucy can come with us.'
We came to the party at around seven. The whole common room was filled with people from different houses. Mostly, though, there was Gryffindor and Slytherin. A few Hufflepuffs were huddled in the corner and some Ravenclaws who just looked completely out of place.
'You actually came!' said Shaun, once he'd noticed us.
'I've got Heather and Rose to look after.' I said. Shaun handed me a red cup. I looked down into it. It was a kind of orangey-reddy looking. 'What's this?' I asked.
'This is the party, Meow. You'll probably be drunk by the end of it. Live a little.' with that he walked off, probably to find Leo.
I looked around and noticed both Tilly and Lucy had gone.
After a few hours, I went to find Tilly. Only to find her half-drunk and giggling with a few older boys.
'What are you doing?' I asked her.
Instead of Tilly answering, it was a Gryffindor boy. 'Having fun. Unlike you.' I looked down at the floor at all the red cups that were around them.
How much have you drunk?
I'd have to admit. I wasn't exactly clean myself, but I'd only had three cups of this stuff. Tilly looked as though she'd have ten or something. I left Tilly in the end and went to find Lucy, thinking she'd be a bit more sensible. I didn't find her at all. And I didn't see Josh. That's when Isaac Montosso came over.
'You're friends deserted you?' he asked.
'I guess...' I said, shyly.
'How many you had?'
'Three? That's it?'
What's wrong with three?
It was almost as though Isaac had read my mind when he said-
'You need to live a little more.' he went over to the table and grabbed another red cup and poured the orangey-red looking liquid into it.
I really need to find out what this stuff is.
He handed it to me. Soon, I was having drink after drink after drink, until I lost count. Most people had left at this point. The only people who remained where the Gryffindors and a few Slytherins who had passed out- Leo being one of them.
'It's best if you stay here tonight.' said Isaac.
'What?' I asked.
He wants me to stay here?
I was actually surprise I still had that frame of mind. I'm pretty sure I saw Tilly go off with a Slytherin boy.
'There's no way you're gonna make it to the Ravenclaw common room.'
He grabbed my hand and led me up to the dormitories. Being a fifth year meant Isaac had the freedom to his own room, so he magically unlocked the door and led me inside.
The room was exactly like the Gryffindor dormitories when you had to share, only there was just one bed and clothes and all sorts lying all over the place. I lent against the wall, suddenly feeling really sick. Isaac came over to me and looked me straight in the eye. His eyes then moved to my hair, which he touched. Then his lips were on mine and I melted into them. His hand them left my hair and started to undo the buttons on my shirt...
