“Outlook! Out, out, outlook!”
Alice Piezecki chanted along with the rest of her graduating class, each of them holding some type of alcoholic beverage in the air. She clinked her shot glass against her best friend‘s beer bottle before downing the contents, grimacing as the clear liquid burned a trail down her throat.
“This party is wild!” Alice yelled over the loud music before lifting her arms over her head, swaying her hips to the beat.
“You can say that again!” Shane McCutcheon, Alice’s best friend and notorious “bad girl” of Outlook High school smirked as she danced with the perky blonde. Her eyes slowly roamed over each female on the dance floor, appreciating the beauty around her.
Alice slapped her best friend’s arm, “Don’t you dare go running off. You promised you wouldn’t leave me alone”
“You’re not alone” Shane laughed as she wrapped an arm around Alice’s shoulders. A beautiful brunette strolled passed at that exact moment, an inviting smirk on her sinful lips. Shane’s eyes followed her until she disappeared into the crowd, her libido groaning at the missed opportunity. “You do know that you have other friends too right?”
Alice rolled her eyes at the tease as she thought of her “friends” and their knack for pairing off at parties, usually leaving Alice to fend for herself.
“What friends?” Alice held out her arms as she waved them around, “All I see are horny teenagers coupled up everywhere”
Since elementary school, they had been a pretty tight knit group. They had done nearly everything together, an inseparable force. That was of course until they reached the age where they became interested in dating and relationships, pairing up with either members of their inner circle or with other students at their school.
Shane laughed as she took a swig of her beer, nearly choking on the contents. “Speaking of coupling up, how are things with Dana?”
Alice shot her best friend a warning look, earning another laugh from the young lothario.
Since she was 10 years old, Alice had harbored a crush for one of her closest friends. A member of their inner circle no less, Dana Fairbanks. As close as they all were, everyone knew about the crush except for poor Dana herself who was pretty much oblivious about everything. That in itself was a blessing considering Dana was hopelessly in love with all around perfect girl next door, Lara Perkins.
