THE SOLES OF my boots are slick from the wet grass, and I almost slip heading up the hill. I bang open the screen door, which slaps behind me as I stumble inside.

The house feels empty, and after surveying the rooms, I find that, indeed, it is.

Jamie’s gone.

The bottle of vodka rests on the kitchen counter, and even though I shouldn’t, I pour myself a shot and slam it back, crashing the shot glass down with a thud.

My hands are shaking and I’m rattled by the evening.

The clock on the microwave shouts that it’s twelve forty-five. I must leave. Plus, I want to be gone before Margot and Brad return from their fuck fest.

I walk over to the sofa, dissolve into it. Fumble through my bag for my keys and cell. My vision is blurry and the lights in the room seem to flicker. I’m smashed. I sink farther into the cushions and rest my head on the arm of the sofa.
