Hey. [Sam & Steph]
Samuel walked down the gloomy, unpeopled hallway. A part of him wanted to loiter there until 12 midnight, because going to that Halloween party would just make him happy for a short period of time. He’s going to leave Thompson High tomorrow, and he didn’t want to be emotional.
He stopped walking—- he decided to sit down for a while. He’s not a party person, and his friends know why. It’s because he’s the guy who can’t hold his liquor. He remembered that time, that time he got drunk at a party. At Steph’s party. That time he and Steph shared a kiss.
The blonde smiled at the thought, and then shook his head. He shouldn’t be thinking of something that won’t happen anymore, because that’s just going to make him sadder.
And then he heard footsteps. He looked around and saw a silhouette of a girl. He remained silent, waiting for the girl to come closer.
A book, a large cup of coffee and a tree to sit under; those were the things needed to keep Steph company for this Halloween night. Of course, her planned quiet night wouldn’t go so well for there was a party going on in some place near the courtyard. Some drunk couple decided to leave the party and make out in the courtyard, near the tree where Steph was sitting under. She told the couple to get a fucking room and left.
She looked for a place where no drunk people would disturb her silence with whatever crazy antic they could think of doing. For her, it seemed impossible to find one so she decided to go to the nearest building she saw.
Almost every hallway in that building seemed to have either a drunk person sleeping on the floor or a group of drunk freshmen knocking on doors and running. That is, until she saw one hallway that looked empty until she walked through it and saw a blonde guy sitting down on the floor, smiling to himself for no apparent reason.
She couldn’t recognize him until she walked closer to him. She saw the blonde guy’s face and instantly found out who he was. She was about to turn around when she realized he was looking at her already so she had no choice but to stay. She said to him, “For crying out loud, do you have to be drunk every time I see you?”
