5. Chapter 5

Avery needed a break anyway and the party would just help her relax. She would only spend an hour there. What could it really hurt anyway?

She rushed back to her dorm room to quickly drop off her school work and change. Her phone buzzed but she only ignored it believing that it was Evan.

Avery quickly changed out of her comfortable clothes into a tight, black dress. She grabbed a pair of black heels and while she was putting them on she stopped to think.

Was it really a good idea to go to the party that Evan would be at?

She had to go and prove to him, once and for all that things really were over. One hour at the party and she would leave.

Avery grabbed her phone and a small, white clutch that would accompany her to the party. She slipped her keys into the clutch and was out the door.

The walk to the party would only take about ten minutes so she decided to leave her car behind. There was a slight breeze but it was still early October so the temperature was moderate. Avery began humming as she continued her walk.

As the walk continued there was a loud honk from behind her. She turned around to see Evan in his blue Ford Mustang pulling up behind her.

He rolled down his window and whistled.

“Hello Evan,” she sighed, realizing how hard it was going to be for this to just be a simple outing.

“Hello beautiful,” Evan smiled, remembering everything beautiful about Avery. “Get in. I’ll give you a ride up to the party.”

Avery pondered over this for a moment because this was either going to save her feet from misery tomorrow or it was going to put her and Evan into more misery.

“Fine,” she said opening the door and slinking her way into the leather seats.

“I thought you were already at the party?” Avery asked raising an eyebrow at him.

“I had to take someone home because he was already wasted.”

“And you aren’t?” Avery asked, surprised she hadn’t already smelled the essence of beer coming from the words he spoke.

“Nope,” Evan shook his head, taking a turn and shifting gears. “Haven’t drank in over a month.”

“Oh,” Avery held back her smile. That was one of the only things she did not like about Evan, his drinking habits.

“You know I miss you a lot,” Evan said, turning his head toward Avery.

“Just drive Evan,” she mumbled. “I do not want to go through this again.”

Evan sighed, “Please. Avery can we just talk about all of this? Lacey meant nothing. I was drunk and I swear she was only a mistake.”

“And did you tell Lacey she was a mistake?” Avery questioned him. “Did you let Lacey know she was only a feeble mistake when you cheated on me with her? Did you tell her she was a mistake when she announced her pregnancy?”

Evan swallowed hard, gripping the steering wheel tighter.

“Avery,” he managed to get out.

“No, Evan. Did you tell her she was only a mistake when she decided abortion was the only way out of it? Because you refused to be a father to any child?” Avery rolled her eyes at him. “Just let me out here. I don’t know why I even thought going to this party would be a good idea.”

“No,” Evan looked like he was about to cry. Evan shifted gears in the Mustang as they took the final turn before the party. “I asked Lacey to keep the baby. I begged her Avery. She decided everything.”

Avery looked over at him confused. Lacey had only told her of his cheating and the pregnancy. Also, that he did not want to be a father so she took matters into her own hands based on his reaction.

“Yeah didn’t think she would have told you that. I followed her to the clinic where she,” Evan choked on his words. “Then they called the police on me. She said the baby wasn’t even mine Avery.”

Evan put the Mustang into park and cut the engine. The two of them sat in silence for a moment as the music blared in the background and many voices were murmuring among the yard.

“I hope you have a good time at the party,” Evan finally said, realizing that Avery had no words for him as of right now.

Avery sighed before getting out of the Mustang. Her plan was to talk to Evan because maybe she misjudged before she knew the entire story. Then she recalled the memory of Lacey telling her everything.

There was no way to tell who was actually being honest about the whole situation. Avery needed a drink to clear her mind. She couldn’t take all these what-ifs in her mind right now.

Avery walked into the house that the party was being held only to see the same guy that she saw earlier. It was the guy who asked her out.

“Great,” she mumbled cutting through the dance floor hoping to avoid him.

As she stumbled through the crowd with only one goal of avoiding the famous guy she saw Evan with a red Solo cup in his hand. She shook her head and immediately changed directions to avoid him as well.  

The party was now nothing more than a ridiculous idea now that she was actually here. Avery tried pushing her way through the crowd but then was stuck between walls of people who were dancing. Their bodies pressed together, impossible to separate and Avery felt trapped until she felt a warm, strong hand grab hers.

She turned to see the face of the hand who was slowly pulling her from the crowd. And oh how she was surprised to see who it was.
