Alcohol and flashing lightsMature

Aa collab between Gardeniacastle and I...about a broken hearted girl with bad luck and horrible decision making.

It was only the intoxication of the alcohol, and the flashing lights of the club that seemed to distract me from this burden I bare. Night after night it was the same story, I go home with some random guy. I wake in the morning feeling just as empty as the night before. Heartbreak is one thing, but to be betrayed by the one person in the world you could trust was lethal. I admit some of it was my fault, maybe I didn't make enough time for him. I just couldn't wrap my head around the idea, my mother? Really?

She had always been jealous of me, my beauty and brains. From an early age i was an attention getter and for this she despised me. I was living my own Cinderella fairy tale. My father died when I was young, so it was just the two of us. Once I turned 18 I couldn't get away from her fast enough.

I moved in with my best friend since kindergarten, Emily. She was more quite then I was, which I guess is what made us so close. We were opposite in every way imaginable. In the looks department she was a plain Jane, but it didn't seem to bother her. Her main focus was always education, and that is why she is in law school while I am out of work and depressed.

The affair with Jason and my mother pretty much spiraled me to the bottom. Emily was really the only person I had left, and she was always busy with school. She was a foster child, so I was really all she had as well.

"Jessica, are you home? " Emily called as my head pounded from the night before."In here, " I called from my room. She appeared in the doorway with the same concerned look as always. She shook her head and spoke again," You know Jessica you really need to be careful with all this promiscuous behavior."  I just rolled over and threw the covers back over my head as usual. I could only assume she was on her way to school, as the sun was just beginning to peak through the window.

I woke a few hours later to a bunch of loud sounds. I jumped up and the pain from my headache plunged right back into place. I drug my hung over body to the window and pulled back the curtain. Across the street A new family was moving into the old Smith house finally. I was just about to crawl back into bed when I caught a glimpse of the husband. He was quite a delight on the eyes and I was couldn't help buy watch his nice toned butt as he disappeared into the house.

The license plate on there car read Texas state. Well California is definitely a different type of living from Texas.

I noticed his wife who seemed to be average in my opinion, and she was followed by two small boys who looked like twins. I watched for a few moments as the repeatedly carried box into the house until I grew bored.

I decided to stroll into the kitchen and see what food we had in the house. Along the way I stopped at the mirror in the hall. I stared back at myself. I was average height I guess, as I stood an five foot six. I studied my tanned skin, green eyes and long blonde hair before entering the kitchen.

"I wonder what life has in store for me today," I blurted to myself as I opened the fridge.

The End
