I was dressed up and ready to go. Me and the rest of the flat had already warmed up for the night with a few drinking games which they participated in and I watched and laughed at.
We headed out, firstly to a great club they had been to last night, and where they had spent most of their time. I went out on to the dance floor and we all danced till we were dizzy, then moved on to the next club, then the next, then the next...
We had lost count of the number of places we'd been when I spotted someone across the dance floor that surprised me really. It was Amy. I went across.
"Hey, what are you doing here?" I asked, yelling over the music.
"Oh, I was meeting someone, and they didn't show so I thought I'd come out instead."
"Huh, so you're alone?"
"Do you want to come and join us?"
"I really shouldn't!"
"Because you're a student!"
"Yeah, but technically, I'm not your student!" I grinned. "Come over if you fancy!"
Five minutes later, Amy appeared and grinned at me.
"Hey guys, this is Amy, a friend of mine." They all grinned and welcomed her in to the dancing circle.
"So do you normally come here?" I asked her.
"It's one of my favourite clubs." She said.
"Because they hold a street dance competition every month on a monday night. There's one next week if you want to go?"
"I'd love too."
"Great." She grinned.
We carried on dancing and chatting for another hour before she said she really ought to go home. I looked at my phone and saw it was midnight.
"Alright, are you getting a taxi?"
"No I'm walking."
"Really? Is it far?"
"Eh, about ten to fifteen minutes."
"Are you sure you'll be alright? I mean, we could walk with you if you wanted."
"Ha, no I think I can handle myself. Thank you though."
"No problem." I was still worried as I watched her make her way through the crowds. "Guys, I think I'm going to go too. I want to get up for a dance early tomorrow."
"Oh seriously?" They moaned.
"Oh go on then!" I left and hurried down the street after Amy.
"What are you doing?"
"Walking you back."
"I told you..." She sighed but I interrupted.
"Nope, I would never let anyone walk back on their own. Now come on."
"But then you'll have to walk on your own."
"Eh, I'm a fast runner."
"Where do you live?"
"Oh, that's not far from where I live. You should be alright. I'll drop you off first."
"Ok, if you're sure."
We walked, chatting about dancing, and why we both loved it so much. Outside my building we stopped and Amy pointed to some houses I had noticed on the outskirts the other day.
"Oh, not far at all then."
"So um... guess I'll see you tomorrow then."
"Guess you will."
I grinned and opened the door, going inside. I waved and then ran up the stairs. I was starting to really like her.
