We skip Annie once I have actuallyn’t seen her in some time, and I’m grateful – in a strange kind of grumpy means – that she teases me personally away from my shell every once in awhile. That knows, possibly i shall satisfy somebody sexy tonight? It may take place.
“Megs! ” We hear Annie’s sound throughout the music her, and then she’s practically climbing through the arms and legs on the dance floor to get to me before I see.
Me, I remember again what’s so great about Annie: nothing is ever half way when she hugs. It’s the kind of hug that squeezes the fresh atmosphere away from you, filled with enthusiasm and love.
“Hi. Therefore, you’ve got me personally out here, you gonna purchase me personally a beverage now? ”
“Shouldn’t it end up being the other means around? You purchase me a glass or two for dragging your lame ass from the apartment and giving you A saturday night that is awesome? ”
“Well, we don’t understand yet so it’s likely to be awesome, do I? ”
Annie quirks her eyebrows.
“You’re beside me, babe. Needless to say it is likely to be awesome. ”
She drags us towards the club, instructions two shots of one thing, and arms me one.
“Bottoms up? ” we state, hesitantly.
I could get you bottoms up, we’d be at your place, not here“If I thought. But yeah, bottoms up. ”
She lifts the cup to her lips and takes it in a single swig. I’m mine that is still holding front of me personally, attempting to put my mind around her words. Annie has jokingly flirted me blush or crack a smile with me many times – more in the manner of trying to make. However the “bottoms up” remark had been stated with a sort that is different of: severe and intense.
“What? You likely to take in it or do i have to do this one too? ” she says, the spell that is momentary now as she laughs at me personally.
“Ok, okay, carrying it out, ” I laugh, and attempt to along the entire part of one swallow.
Bad idea. The liquor strikes the straight back of my neck and we immediately seize up in to a cough, like fire most of the way on to my lung area.
Annie chuckles, rubs my straight back and takes my hand.
“Come on, I’ve got some buddies at a dining dining dining table into the straight back. We are able to stay, ” she claims.
We shrug, and follow her lead, moving through the sweaty, bumping audience of dancers.
Couple of hours later on, I’ve made about a dozen brand new buddies, every one of who appear to have currently learned about “Annie’s friend that is best. ” I’ve been told I’m “as gorgeous as Annie said” and that most people are therefore excited to “finally satisfy me personally. ”
If they state these exact things, we make brief attention connection with Annie. She smiles and shrugs, appears almost timid – a feeling I’ve never truly seen on her before.
Fundamentally, we lean up to her and whisper inside her ear.
“How come we have actually such an admirer club? We all know whom i will be! ”
“What may I state, i prefer you. Therefore I talk about you a whole lot i suppose. I’ve missed you. We don’t understand, Megs. Possibly it is my crush that is unrequited more I can’t perhaps you have, the greater amount of i want you? ”
I choke down fun.
“A crush. On me personally? Funny. ”
