Costume Party (Excerpt)
But this girl on the balcony put her phone away as she continued gazing in my direction and I wondered if she was thinking the same thing. I wondered if she bought into the same lie as I had walking into this costume party, believing that charming love was something of a bygone era and we had a one night only pass back if we dressed the part. I realized the truth is we were all lying tonight. We all were sleeping with two other people, living another life even beyond these elaborate Victorian skins. In fact, we were free to lie as much as we so desired. And tonight, for the first time all night, I wanted to buy two more drinks and have the night to last a couple hours longer. I began walking towards the balcony in her direction.
