College sucks. College sucks because I'm stupid. It was so much simpler in high school when I had my mom to help me with everything. The only perks of being out of high school is my apartment and independence. I would've got a dorm but I can't deal with half my room belonging to someone else. Anyway, thank god it's Friday. I'm so glad I don't have classes for another two days. Nash's party is also today and I can't wait to let loose, get drunk, and catch up with some friends. Nash thinks he can become a big time movie actor so he decided college was pointless. His parents are completely supportive! My parents would've lost all sanity if I didn't attend. Either way, the point is he's still living with his mom and dad right now.

Usually I would go to my best-friend Ashley's house to get ready for a party, but now she comes to my place since she lives in a dorm.

"Is Matthew single?" Ashley asks me.


"Yeah who else?" She snaps.

"I don't know, why?" I shrug.

"He's hot and I want to take him for a test drive." I laugh at her as I slip on my dress. Nothing fancy just a little black dress.

"Go for it, what do you have to lose?"

"My virginity." Ashley says in a 'you should've known' way.

"What? I thought you gave that to Jack G."

"No, I didn't want to be a one night stand. Not everyone can be as lucky as you. Shawn was so sweet and you were so cute together." She whines and I almost get a little sad at the memory.

"Yeah, too bad he had to be such a good singer and have a chance at fame." I say sarcastically. "This isn't about me, though. If you like Matt and think you're ready, have a few drinks and drag him to a guest room." I try to be wise even though I'm bad at giving advice.

"Yeah but if I drink who's going to drive?" Ashley always drives me home after I get completely wasted beyond belief.

"I guess I'll make the sacrifice." I sigh, "but remember this next time you're about to say no when I ask you for a favor."

"Sounds like a deal." She smiles, "now lets go, I want to get to the party before there's people passed out on the lawn."

Once we get in my car, Ashley plugs the aux cord into her phone and proceeds to play nothing but alternative rock; although, we're going to a party that's most likely only going to play hip-hop and pop.

When we pull up to the house, I can already tell how crowded it is. Everyone's smiling, not because they're happy, but because they're either drunk or high. "Your music taste is trash." Carter laughs while opening the door for Ashley. I don't know why she doesn't just go for him. He's been crushing on her since junior year.

I bring my bottle of vodka to the kitchen and put it on the counter. If I knew then that I wasn't going to get any of it, I would've saved my money.

"Jade! You made it." Nash slurs his words before pulling me into a hug.

"How're you already drunk? Your party started like 30 minutes ago." I laugh.

"Well you see, I played beer pong at least 100 times in the first 10 minutes." He said in a very serious tone before we both started laughing hysterically.

"Point taken," I nod, "where's your brother?"

"Hayes?" Nash furrows his eyebrows "How do you even know about him? He's too much of a fucking dork to talk to a girl."
