Teagan is a freshman at Bronson University of Art and Design. She visits her thirty-something boyfriend on the weekends, and, on occasion kisses girls when no one's looking. "Why do you care so much?" Tessa asked, staring at me with half-lidded eyes as she leaned her head back against the recliner. She looked so serious, almost too serious, but I could tell she was asking with genuine curiosity. I wanted to give her a straight-forward answer, yet all I could do was shrug. "I don't know," I muttered. "Maybe because that's the only thing keeping me alive?" The corners of her mouth turned up, and a long silence followed afterwards. Eventually, I gave up our staring contest with a sigh and stood from the nest of blankets I had made in the corner of the couch. "You know, caring isn't such a bad thing," I said over my shoulder as I padded down the hall towards the kitchen. "You should try it sometime."

Myridian Day
Age Rating:


Smoke filled the air, wafting up to the high ceiling where disco balls and strobe lights glittered and flashed. The air was thick with the smell of dope and cheap perfume. Bodies glistened with sweat, eyes glazed over from the haze that shrouded us all. Andy was right there with me. His skin was warm, pressed against mine like a protective layer, separating me from the strangers that surrounded us. We were consumed by the fluid motion of limbs, connected like waves in a riptide. People babbled, seemingly praying to unknown gods, the essence of booze tainting our blood. This wasn’t my first rodeo, yet it always surprised me, the way people seemed to lose themselves in a place like this.

By the end, the alcohol that is consumed has begun to weep from my pores. My heels have all but made the experience positive, practically crushing the bones in my feet. Not to mention the cramping in my calves from dancing and grinding against Andy as if my life depended on it. In the Uber, we paid no mind to the driver as we kissed and touched each other, and the moment we arrived at his apartment, we stumbled out of the backseat and up the steps. He fumbled with the lock, we busted through the door, he carried me to his room, and the rest is history. When it’s all said and done, and the morning after allows some thought to pass, I sometimes wonder why I even go out. It’s fun, but it’s dirty. Like jumping into a puddle, expecting to be splashed by fresh rainwater, but getting sprayed, instead, by a thick layer of mud.

When Sunday night rolls around, and it’s time to return to the university, I say my goodbyes and I’m forced to pretend none of it ever happened.
