Maybe I was drunk, or maybe I was just falling in love, but how could I have been falling in love after only knowing her for mere hours? I blew it off to me being intoxicated, but I suddenly didn’t give a damn about the concerts happening in front of me that I’d paid hundreds of dollars on, because all I wanted to do was stare at her.

“You should come back to my campsite and hang with us tonight,” Marissa breathed, her mouth pressed against my ear so I could hear over the booming bass and shrill screams. I looked down at her with my unfocused eyes and grinned at her. She cradled my face in her hand with the sweetest smile on her face. She grabbed my hand next and started pulling me back to the gate. I glanced back at Alex momentarily, but she just smiled at me and gave me a thumbs up. I waved back and stumbled after Marissa. Even in my state, I could see that she was walking pretty well for someone who’d been drinking.

When we got back to her site, she left me with her friend who she’d been with the night she gave me her number while she went to the bathroom. The girl looked at me and I smiled back as she handed me another beer.

“She is so fucking into you, I’ve never seen her like this,” the girl explained as I cracked the beer open. It made my stomach do flips and I started smiling like an idiot.

“But, Marissa, she has some issues,” she continued, but I wasn’t really listening anymore. Everybody had issues!

“She can be a handful, she has a lot going on and she’s not always-“

I cut her off by showing her my phone.

The girl looked at me and went pale.

“Alcohol makes her-“

“Alcohol makes me what?” Marissa smiled, plopping onto my lap and I smiled at her, brushing her hair behind her shoulder. Her friend swallowed hard and forced a smile.

“Nothing, just reflecting on alcohol as a depressant,” she answered through gritted teeth.

“She’s a Capricorn; serious, disciplined, and independent,” Marissa grumbled, her finger extended out to the girl who now looked irritated. She rolled her eyes and looked at me.

“Don’t say I didn’t warn you, good luck,” she growled, stomping off and Marissa sighed in an annoyed fashion before looking back at me.

Marissa burst into laughter and I followed suit. I watched her septum piercing glisten against the flashing lights from the campsite. I pointed at it and she touched it.

She furrowed her brow and shrugged, like she was thinking.

“If I’m honest, I can’t really remember if it hurt because it was more of a shock factor than anything else. They take this big ass needle,” she holds her hands up to give a rough estimated size of the needle. “And above it through and before you even have time to think about the pain, you’re just like, ‘Holy shit! There’s a big fucking needle that just pierced through my skin!’ But I will say it was pretty sore after I got it done,” she explained, leaning into me when she finished. I wrapped my arms around her and held her in my arms. I wanted the moment to last forever.

“I really like you, Ash,” she mumbled into my neck and I squeezed her tighter. I had never wanted to be able to talk so badly so I could tell her how she hadn’t escaped my mind since the moment she was fixing her lipstick. I wanted to tell her how she was unlike any girl I’d ever met and how I’d never felt the way I did about anybody like I did for her. I didn’t even know her that well in all honesty, but I was enamoured with her.

She lifted her head from where it had been nestled in my neck and she smiled.

“How do you sign, ‘Would you like a drink?’?,” she questioned, cocking her head ever so slightly. I frowned with a smile at her; didn’t she know that I could hear her? She didn’t need to sign to me! Regardless, I slowly signed it for her. She suddenly grabbed her chest and “awwed” dramatically. I raised my eyebrow in question as she rested her hand on my shoulder.

“I would love another drink, thank you for asking, Ashton,” she swooned and I couldn’t help but laugh at her little trick. I stood up and walked over to the cooler, grabbing us each a beer and she just grinned as I handed it to her.

“Thanks,” she blushed, snuggling into my lap once more as we sipped our beers.ns18.104.22.168da2
