  • The party at the club house of his gated apartment complex was enjoyable, but afterwards quite surreal. Surrounded by acquaintances and colleagues, it dawns on him he’s still quite sober, and not really wanting to take it any further.

    Immediately upon entering the apartment, he realizes he’s out of his element. Crowded; blended faces and loud noises. Everyone shifts and staggers and he desperately skitters to an open corner by the fridge. Automatically he glances the room, and not even the tall beauty in the “fuck me” heels shaking his hand could keep his interest in this place much longer. He tucks his head, and burrows his way back out.

    Walking back to his apartment was even stranger. The crowds had dispersed into their after parties and bedrooms; but he was far from alone. Solitary monsters wobble here and there, bellowing out strange moans and grunts. He tries not to lock eye contact with any of the returning bar-goers, in fear they might charge him and eat his flesh.

    He cowers into his bed; hiding under blankets like a disturbed child. Outside, the sound of a girl screaming echoes across the courtyard, followed by the thrashing sounds of one of those fiends ripping a chair out of the cement ground it was bolted to. More screams, cat calls, loud yelps and whistles. "Fucking savages," he thinks to himself.
