"Are you sure you want to go out tonight" cam asked. It was the 1st anniversary of your parents death. They died in a car accident cause by a drunk driver. "Cameron, they don’t want me sitting around forever. I know they wouldn’t. We will go out and have fun like a normal couple." You and cam were dating for about 3 years and sharing an apartment together. "Yeah but maybe we should just go to dinner. Not a bar party." He said a little worried "Cameron. Stop. I’m fine. Don’t be worried everything will be fine" you said trying to ease his mind.
As you guys pulled into the bar, you began to panic a little. There were big crowds of people going in to the same party as you. Cameron parked and you stepped out of the car looking into the bar. He came and grabbed your hand “you sure you wanna go in?” He asked.
You nodded your head and headed in.
You found your friend who was throwing the party after 15 minutes of looking “(y/f/n) happy birthday!!” You said as you ran up to her “thank you! And thanks for coming!” She said. “We wouldn’t miss it for the world” Cameron answered. “Come on lets get you guys a drink” she said as she grabbed your pulling you through the crowd of people. You looked back at Cameron and you were worried. He just shook his head and shrugged his shoulders. Neither of you knew what to do.
You or Cameron were never ‘drinkers’. If you ever went out you would only drink wine, and you rarely had more than one glass. Same situation with Cameron, never really drank. You never saw him drink anymore than a few sips of beer.
"Can I get a martini and a scotch please?" (Y/f/n) asked the bar tender. You forgot what a martini even had in it, but you knew a scotch was strong. The bar tender handed you the martini and Cameron the scotch. You both looked at each other and took a sip. The second the martini hit your tongue you knew exactly what was in it. Vodka. Straight, cold, vodka. Cameron nearly spit out his scotch all over you.
About 10 minutes into the party you lost Cameron to a group of friends. You found a few girls you went to high school with and began to catch up and before you knew it, it had been 2 hours into the party and you weren’t even finished with your martini. You were actually kind of tired. You said goodbye to your friends and went to find Cameron.
You found him sitting at the bar with his friends. You tapped him on the back and the minute he turned around you could smell the alcohol coming off of him. You took a step back out of shock. “What” he yelled out. You still didn’t answer. He turned back around and continue to drink some sort of dark drink. “How much has he had” you ask his friend. “I don’t know, 5 maybe 6 shots” he answered. “Come on Cameron its time to go” you said pulling his shoulder. “no I’m having fun” he said. “No, let’s go” you yelled. He stood up from his seat and you thought he was coming with you but when you turned around he was standing still. “Were leaving” you yelled grabbing his hand but before you could grab it he pushed you back, causing you to fall straight on your ass.
When you looked up people were holding him back, even though he didn’t look like he was intending to do any damage. “I’m staying. And don’t worry, I can’t kill your parents if I drive. They’re already dead” he said out. Looking almost proud. And just like that all the pain you’ve been avoiding about your parents came rushing back.
You stood up and ran out of the bar as fast as you could leaving Cameron behind. You ran to the car with your tears streaming down your face. You found your car keys and drove away as fast as you could.
