I was once again sitting by the booth. The table in front of me were filled with empty shot glasses and different bottles, which meant that we'd be taking a cab home. None of us would be sober enough to walk.

I had Niall on my right side and Becca on my left. Kayla and Louis were still missing, so we started to assume they had gone home. Maya had explained to me that Kayla didn't want to be exclusive with Louis, and that's why she freaked out when he told another guy to beat it.

When everyone was so busy drinking and laughing, Niall took the opportunity to place his hand on my thigh under the table. I remember the list Maya gave me, and it said that he would place his hand on my thigh if he wants my attention.

His touch lit a fire inside me, but I tried not to show it. Even though he noticed it.

"You're awfully twitchy." He mumbled in my ear, reaching for his beer on the table.

He looked away, but I could see the grin on his face as he took a sip from the bottle.

"Can you follow me to the restroom?" I asked, turning to Becca.

She nodded and stood up from her seat. I followed her movements and Niall's hand slid off my thigh. Becca guided us towards the bathroom and we went inside, just to end up in a smaller line. We weren't the only ones who needed to freshen up.

"What time is it?" I asked and leaned my hip against the marble sink behind me.

"Almost two." Becca responded after checking her phone.

"God, my head is spinning and honestly I just wanna go home."

"One more hour and then we'll leave, okay? Besides, I haven't seen you interacting with Jesse once since we got here."

"What does that have to do with anything?" I asked, moving forward in the line.

"Aren't you two dating?"

"We went on one date. That doesn't mean we're dating." I explained, slightly sighing. "Plus, Jennifer practically told me to stop seeing him because of Niall."

"She did?" Becca frowned. "Do whatever you want."

About five minutes later, we left the bathroom to go back to the booth. But on our way back I heard someone yelling my name. It was Jesse. He was by one of the bars with Joshua. I grabbed Becca's wrist to take her with me to them.

"Hey, I was wondering if I could buy you a drink?" Jesse asked, leaning down to my ear so I could hear him.

"No one's stopping you." I grinned, watching as he waved the bartender over to us.

"Is this your first time at a club?" Joshua asked me.

"Yeah." I nodded.

"Are you enjoying it?"

"I'm not hundred percent sober, so I guess you could say I'm enjoying it." I laughed, causing the three of them to slightly chuckle as well. Then Jesse handed me a drink, which I happily accepted. Joshua offered to buy one for Becca too and I wasn't surprised she agreed to it.

"So, Sam, I was thinking about taking you to some sort of temporary amusement park in a few weeks, you know, as our second date." Jesse said to me.

"An amusement park?"

"Yeah. There will be a few rollercoasters, a ghost house, Ferris wheel and stuff like that."

"I'll come with you on one condition."
