THE THREE OF US STRUTTED INTO THE DANCE, arms linked together. We sat at a table as Cassie, Lexi, and Maddy came to sit with us. After we hugged and greeted each other we all sat down in unison. Not long after that Kat came over and sat with us as well.
"Hi." Kat said sitting down.
"Wow, you look awesome." I said looking at the girls outfit.
"Thanks." Kat replies cheerfully as her and Maddy gave each other awkward glances. As we sat in silence and watched everyone dance, Cassie spoke.
"What if these are, like, the big moments in life? Like, my mom always talks about how highschool was like this big, monumental part of her life." She said pausing. "But I cannot imagine being 40 and looking back at this, like, 'wow'."
"Yeah, but that's because most people peak in highschool." Maddy said laughing
"If you call this 'peaking' then you can just shoot me now." I said making everyone giggle.
"Yeah, I feel like I'm not even a person yet." Lexi stated.
"Yeah, I'm definitely at, like, 25 percent peakness." Cassie explained.
"I feel like I'm at a hundred." Jules said as she took a sip of Maddy's orange drink and passed it to me. "But I can definitely get to 150."
"Honestly, I never thought I'd make it this far." Rue said in a monotoned voice.
"Same." I agreed.
"What do you mean?" Cassie asked Rue.
"I don't know, I just always had, like, this overwhelming anxiety that something bad would happen."
"Yeah I kinda thought I would be dead by now." I added.
"In all fairness, last summer, there were, like three weeks where I thought you were dead." Maddy said looking at Rue.
"Okay, but she's been sober for, like, three months." Jules stated.
"Weren't you in rehab like six months ago?" Maddy asked.
"Uh, yeah." Rue said chuckling.
"Maybe people are nasogastric about highschool 'cause it's, like, the last time in their life that they get to dream." Cassie said making me laugh.
"I don't know about you guys, but I stopped dreamin' a long fucking time ago." I said as I pulled out my flask and took a few gulps.
"Yeah, but after this it's just bad jobs, and bill, and bad husbands. Maybe I'm generalizing, but I don't know. Do you guys get what I mean?" Cassie asked.
