What a wild night. The fragrance of cigarette smoke and weed clung to her and refused to let go. She could still taste it on her breath along with the alcohol she imbibed. She drank more than enough to leave most comatose. Nyx was unfortunately still conscious.
She wasn't even sure how she managed to get herself here without crashing her truck, but she guessed after driving drunk so many times, she'd mastered the art. Or maybe she was just insanely lucky. This wasn't the first dumb mistake she'd made tonight. The first was going to this dumb party full of people she knew from high school who came back to town for summer break. The second was deciding to participate in a goddamn shotgunning competition. The third was fucking around with hard liquor and drugs, which, big surprise, got her all ready to throw some hands over the dumbest things. Got herself into a fight and got away from it with a shiner and a busted lip.
Nyx had no fucking self control but she already knew that. God only knows how many times she's almost gotten herself killed over the course of twenty years. There must have been five separate incidents just tonight.
But none of that mattered anymore. She was standing in front of the door to Issa's apartment. Normally she wouldn't bother her so late, but Nyx was too drunk to think about the hour. She was fucking lonely and wanted to see Issa after spending the entire night missing her. Even if it was too late to hang out with her, just knowing she was there and nearby was enough for Nyx. It was better than going back to her miserable empty apartment, where she'd only end up feeling even lonelier.
It took her a few moments to noisily fumble with the lock. Wrong key. It took her a few more moments to make sure she had the right one, then she finally let herself in. She didn't mean to make so much noise as she shut and locked the door behind her. Nyx nearly fell as she took a step forward in the dark and had to catch herself on the wall. She only managed to get to the couch before she collapsed onto it with a groan.
