It was still comparatively early for clubbing, so when they got there, they were only 3rd in line. In the next fifteen minutes, a huge line had formed behind them. But staying out in the cold still didn’t suck that much. They were having fun, eager to get inside and start dancing.
Everything seemed to be going well. She was happy. She was having fun. She loved having fun with her friends and the gang definitely made it entertaining. She didn’t expect anything to get different. She was comfortable and she liked it.
She was having fun. But….
Something was holding her back. There was some part of her that seemed to want to just go home, curl up and go to sleep.

I guess some days were just like that. Some days you can dance to any song and others, you can’t even dance to your favorite ones.
Today, she would at least not hate herself for coming out. She pulled her earphones off, put them in the bad, and walked back in, towards her friends…
