I was out of my element. 

My feet ached and my belly churned with nervousness but earlier this night, I promised Kathy I'd try. 

I deserved to be happy and most especially, I deserved to forget.... Even if it was just for a night. 

"I'll be back." I told Kathy. 

Her hands gripped mine as they met my stare and slowly they loosened. "Are you okay?" She asked.

I nodded with a smile . "I just want to adjust my make up." I replied. It wasn't entirely the truth but she didn't need to know. 

I couldn't let her know how much I was dying inside. 

I smiled harder. 

She frowned. 

"Do you want me to come along?" 

"No. I'll be back in three minutes." 

"Kathy, you're up." A familiar voice interrupted. 

We both turned to look at Michael, Kathy's current boyfriend. "Gimme a minute." She replied and then blew him a kiss.

I watched them flirt shamelessly, It was awfully cute but I'd never tell her that. 

"I'll be back." I said again but this time, I doubt she heard me. 



"Uh, excuse me." A soft voice whispered. I felt her light tap on my shoulder like an electric shock. 

I turned. 

And it took willpower to maintain an aloof composure as I stared at her. 

"Do you know where the rest room is?" She asked, her voice still soft and sweet. 

I stared wordlessly, somehow, she'd left me utterly speechless. 

Somehow, my brother's girlfriend seemed nothing like I'd imagined her. 

And somehow I knew I was fucked. 

"Uh, Mister?" 

No words. 

"I should get going." She said, her brows scrunched in confusion. 

I watched her turn to leave. 

'Get your sh*t together.' My mind whispered harshly. 

I grabbed her wrist. 


She turned back to look at me

. Her lips pulled in a tight frown as she looked down at her wrist. 

"Sorry." I mumbled. 

I shoved my hands in the pocket of my jeans. 

"I'll take you to the rest room." I offered. 

For a moment she just stared suspiciously. 

"Uh, thanks but I'm good." She finally  said.

Disappointment filled me and this time, I watched her leave.

I was really f*cked.
