The parking lot is totally empty, except for two teenage girls with more bad ideas than good ones. They'd stolen Nyx's mom's truck for the night — which must be near the very top of the list of Bad Ideas. Nyx doesn't want to think about the repercussions, but that's just one of those things she'll have to worry about later. All that matters is right now, she's got Senelle with her and she can get her laughing and smiling and having a good time, even if all they're doing is smoking and eating shitty fast food in a parking lot at about 5pm on a Saturday. It's already getting dark. The autumn air is crisp and cool like the hard cider she's sipping on — the perfect drink for this time of year. If it means she can have this, then all the beatings and bullshit is worth it.
Nyx is sitting in the bed of the truck with the tailgate open and her legs dangling over the edge. She wolfs down a handful of hot salty fries — she swears Beelzebub's must put crack or some shit in those fries, they're so fucking good — and remembers. "Shit, it's Halloween." It completely slipped her mind. Holidays never really meant anything to her, but maybe things could be different now that she had a friend. They could go out and do something fun, but it's not like Nyx needed much to have fun with Senelle.
It's been more than a month but the nerves never quite went away. She holds her bottle of cider with both hands and her ankles cross. She thinks this is the best she's felt in a long time. She takes an aside glance at the other girl, though she turns her gaze elsewhere before she can catch herself staring. She looks up at the starless sky. "Maybe we should rob some little kids. It's not fucking fair how they get all this free shit for wearing ugly ass costumes, but if we tried, bitches would slam the door in our fuckin' faces. Least they can do is share their loot, right?" She looks Senelle's way again, her smirk says she's not totally serious, but hey, Nyx just wanted to go out and do something bad.
