Chapter 3: Who are you


Jay drank only one pint of beer and helped other friends to reach their homes. He was coming back to his house by walking as it was near and enjoying the breeze of a cool night, escaping from jam packed life.

Aria was light-headed with a cocktail and stumbled down the dimly lit street, the alcohol warming her cheeks and muddling her thoughts, she nearly collided with a tall, handsome stranger. He caught her by the arm, steadying her before she could fall.

"Are you okay?" Jay asked, concern etched on his face.

She looked up at him through bleary eyes, feeling a sudden rush of attraction. He was gorgeous, with his chiseled jawline and piercing blue eyes. Then she remembered seeing him at the bar.

"Yeah, I'm fine," she mumbled, "did you follow me Mr flirter"

He chuckled, the sound sending shivers down her spine. "You don't seem fine to me and I didn't follow you Ms boozer. Maybe I should walk you home?"

She hesitated to accept his offer, and was cautious with this intriguing stranger. She said "I can walk by myself" and started to head towards her home. Jay was concerned about a girl with an alcohol mindset walking alone on the road so he followed her without talking to her. As they walked down the street together, she reached home and she turned over, walked towards Jay furiously, and asked "I said not to follow me, didn't I"

Jay was confused and asked her if he lost his way home and with a sad little face he said "Can you take me to your home" She was convinced and took him to her home. She was tipsy but tried to stand straight, rang the doorbell and her sister opened the door. He was standing outside and turned around to go back to his place wherein her sister called Jay and enquired about him. He lied to her " I am her friend and she was drunk, so thought of walking to her home". Her sister thanked him and went inside.

Early morning when Aria's head came out of a hangover, her sister told her about yesterday's incident. Aria remembered his face but didn't have much of a memory about him. She knows that he was not her friend but doesn't know how he came with her up to her home.
