If you had asked Vanessa earlier in the night where she’d be in four hours, she would have confidently answered ‘Still sitting on Jaron’s couch, cuddling with his dog’ or ‘Comfortably asleep in my bed, dreaming of fashion week.’ Where she actually ended up was five drinks in, dancing in a bar, wondering where her friend disappeared off to and then shaking those thoughts from her mind with a small shrug. Or.. maybe she was six drinks in. Seven? Regardless, the fact of the matter was the girl was more drunk than she’d been in at least a few weeks and was currently dancing her heart out on the dance floor. In fact, she was really feeling herself. She was simply moving her hips to the thumping sound of the music without a care in the world when she accidentally bumped into someone on her right, nearly knocking their drink on the ground. “Oh my god, I’m so sorry!” she called out, turning quickly to face the other person.
