Peterick High School AU


4. Dance, Dance

I glanced at the calendar on the wall. It's Friday, October 30th. Karolin has been freaking out all day at school because there's some Halloween party going on at Mr. Way's house or something like that. He was the new teacher she was talking about, they became really good friends and he invited her and us, Kat and I, to the party. It's mostly adult so he said if we get drunk don't go home because he doesn't want our parents to know he gave us alcohol.

Karolin shrugged her backpack off as we all sat down in Mikey's classroom. That what he told us to call him, Mikey, I like it. "Karolin get off my desk." He sighed as he continued to grade papers.

"What're you gonna do? Give me detention. It's after school hours." Karolin teased.

"Kare, seriously just get off the man's desk." Katherine sighed.

"I thought you were gonna say dick instead of desk at first." Karolin laughed at her sister. Poor Karolin, still clueless about her sister. She knew she was depressed lately but she didn't know why so she tried to make her smile any chance she could get. Kat let out a quiet laugh at that but shook her head.

Karolin jumped off his desk and sat on mine instead, accidentally sitting on my hand that was on the desk. I quickly jerked my hand out from underneath her. "Eww, you made touch your butt." I squealed jokingly.

"Ohmigod, Patrick touched the butt!" Karolin shouted running to Katherine while Katherine just laughed. I loved her laugh, it's better than her crying.

"I love your laugh Kat." I laughed with her and Karolin coughed awkwardly.

"Aww, I still ship it. What about you Mikes, do you ship it?" She gushed and Mikey just nodded.

"Whatever you say Kare, just let me finish this. Please." He said while Kat and I just blushed staring at each other.

Once Mikey got done with his work he drove Kat, Kare, and I to their house. I rode the bus today so I didn't need to get my car, it was still at my house. "I'll be back to pick you guys up at 8. Alright?" Mikey asked as well climbed out of his car. We all nodded and made our way inside the house.

"What are you gonna dress up as Kat?" I asked her as she sat down in the livingroom.

"Um, I don't know what do you think I should be?" She asked.

"We should match." I suggested and she let out a cute laugh.

"Okay. What should we be then?"

"You should be batman and I'll be Robin." I laughed.

"Why don't you be batman?"

"Are you turning down batman?"

"No, I just figured you would want to be him."

"I think you deserve to be batman." I smiled at her and she smiled in return. "Let's go get the outfits and leave Kare here."

"Yeah, be quiet and we can just sneak out." She giggled and we began quietly leaving the house.

We climbed into her car, quickly speeding out of the driveway. "We did it!" I shouted laughing as she smiled widely. I hadn't seen her this happy in days, not after what happened. I couldn't even think about it.

I glanced at her again, I want to make sure that smile stays on her face all night.

We ran hand in hand into the costume store searching the aisles for the costume. After a few minutes we found them and went to the register to pay for them. "You two are so cute together." The woman running the register said. She looked like she was in her late 40s, she had blonde hair and brown-greens eyes. Kat and I blushed then realized we were still holding hands and let go of each other. "Oh, I see. You two are still at the 'best friends stage.' The one where no one admits their feelings or you both did and no one is acting on them." She smirked.

Oh, how right this woman actually was. I smiled back at her and grabbed our bags. "Have a nice night, Miss." She nodded with a smile.

"She was sweet." Kat whispered and I nodded grabbing her hand once again as we made it to the car. It was about 6 now which meant it would be about 7 by the time we got back, that would be enough time to get ready.

When we pulled into the driveway, Karolin was waiting already dressed. She was a... whore? I don't know, something not appropriate for anything except Halloween, of course. We got out of the car and I apologized to Karolin. "Kare, I just called you a whore in my mind. I'm sorry, I felt bad." I said and she laughed.

"You guessed what I am for Halloween." She joked. "It's cool. I'm just trying to get someone's attention."

"Who Mr. Way's?" Kat asked smirking.

"You could say that." She smirked back at her sister.

"Well, you'll definitely get someone's attention." I spoke and she laughed again as Kat went inside. She then got up and strutted over to me, wrapping her arms around my neck, getting awfully close to my heated face. I may have said she looked like a whore, but I didn't say it wasn't attractive.

"Am I getting yours?" She asked batting her eyelashes.

"I-I," I couldn't form a damn sentence.

"Aww, I'm making you blush an-" She was cut short and looked genuinely shocked. "Oh my god, Patrick, did I actually make you hard?" She asked quietly, giggling. I blushed and looked down, GREAT! I was actually glad Kat couldn't see me right now. This is embarrassing.

"Kare, this isn't funny." I said quietly glancing behind her to see if Kat was still inside, she was I couldn't see her pacing around the living room taking the costume out of the bags, laying them out on the couch.

"Yes it is and last time I checked a boner isn't a medical problem, trust me you'll be fine." She laughed again.

"Kare, what if Kat sees?" I asked blushing again.

"So? I thought you didn't like her." She teased.

"So what if I do or don't. It's still embarrassing." I shook my head.

"Don't worry, Pat, it's not the noticeable I just felt it, that's how I knew." She giggled.

"Fine." I sighed. "And don't call me Pat." I quickly walked into the house and Kat glanced at me before tossing me my costume. I caught and held it in front of me, hiding what Karolin laughed at me for. "Thanks." I smiled and she smiled back.

"No problem, I'm really excited."

"Me too." I laughed and made my way to the bathroom. Oh, the bathroom, that's where I found Kat- I quickly push the memories away and get dressed. I leave the bathroom as fast as I can and go to Kat's room. I forget to knock and just enter to see Kat trying to slide the costume on over her short girl boxers and tank top. She was struggling.

She jumped and let out a gasp. "Oh, it's just you." She breathed.

"Yeah, just me." I said as I sat on her bed and watched her struggle. Suddenly I caught a glimpse of something on her just below her hip.

"What happened?" I asked pointing at it and she looked down at it, immediately looking away.

"I-I don't know." She whispered.

"Kat, don't lie." I said quietly getting up to hug her again. She stopped trying to put the costume on and dropped it on the floor wrapping her arms around my waist.

"You didn't notice at first so I didn't say anything." She whispered.

"Oh, god, Kat you didn't do this to yourself, did you?" I asked getting down to look at the cuts, they were partially healed.

"No, he did." She said dropping to the floor next to me. She hugged me again tightly and began crying as Karolin walked in. I wrapped my arms around her squeezing her lightly.

"What are you doing with my sister and why isn't she fully clothed?" Karolin asked narrowing her eyes at me. "Why is she crying?"

"It's personal Kare." Kat whispered through tears.

"What? Patrick did you do something to her?"

"Of course not." I narrowed my eyes back at her.

"Whatever." She sighed leaving the room.

"I'm so so sorry, Kat." I whispered as she continued to cry on my shoulder. "C'mon you need to get ready for the party and keep that smile on your face. It's too beautiful to hide." I said as she pulled away and pinched her cheeks, making her smile again. "See," I said turning her towards the mirror resting my head on her shoulder. "Way better."

She nodded as I flopped down onto the bed and continued to try to get her costume on. "I should have got a bigger size." She sighed.

"I can help you if you want." I said from my spot on the bed.

"Yes, please." She said trying to pull it up past her hips. I come behind her and grabbed the part that was folded. She didn't need a bigger size she just needed to slide it on the right way. I pulled it up and it slid right over her hips up to her chest. She put her arms through the sleeves and waited for me to zip it, which I did with shaking hands. I always get nervous with Kat lately. She turned around to me putting her mask on. She hugged me. "Thanks, Robin." She laughed reaching for the mask on her dresser. She turned back towards me leaning in and tying it around my face. "Much better."

"Thanks, I knew something was missing."

"I forgot to give it to you." She blushed looking at the floor.

"Thanks batman." I whispered and she smiled.

"Let's go! Mikey is here!" Karolin shouted from the living room.

"Oh yeah, we should probably go." She said smiling.

"Yeah, let's go." I smirked grabbing her hand.

When we walked through the front door the scent of alcohol and smoke filled our noses. Kat scrunched up in nose in disgust. "I hate the smell of smoke." She said as Mikey lead us to the kitchen and I nodded in response.

"This is where the alcohol is now enjoy." Mikey said and left with Karolin following closely behind. I wonder what's going on with those two. I felt a hand slide into mine and I smiled when I saw Kat, gripping my hand tightly.

"You want a drink?" I asked as began to get one myself. Kat said nothing but nodded so I grabbed her a can of beer. "This good?" I asked and she nodded once again.


"You okay?" I asked her as she popped open the can.

"I'll be better once I loosen up." She said taking off her mask and chugging the beer. "Can I have another one please?"

I let out a quiet laugh, "You can have as many as you want."

"Drink yours. I don't want to be drinking alone." She whined jokingly. I did as I was told and drank the rest of the beer soon grabbing another. And another. And maybe another.

She did the same and by the time we actually left the kitchen we were both too drunk to walk straight. "Dance with me?" I whispered into her ear and she nodded latching onto my hand again as we stumbled towards the area where everyone is dancing.

We danced bumping into people a few times until the song ended. She hugged me and looked up at me for a moment, I glanced down at her as she looked away. Her eyes suddenly wided and she let go of me running up the stairs. I quickly ran after her and checked all the rooms down the hallway. I pushed the last door open and saw her curled in a ball crying in the corner of the dark room.



Happy Friday the 13th :D
