Luka was staring at Mischa, astonished. She had just... fallen into his arms. He felt like time was slowing down and all the world seemed to slip away. He tried to get words out of his mouth but nothing was coming to mind. Soon Luka could start to hear the world around him again. He was standing right next to a speaker and it was hurting his head. "How about we... uhm.. go and sit down."
"Uh huh." Mischa stumbled out. They moved off the dance floor and over to the tables. "Where?"
"Well... there's John and Jackie."
Luka and Mischa headed joined the other two and a couple hours and several drinks later, Jackie looked down at her watch and gasped. It was already two in the morning.
"We should really get going you guys." Jackie said. Carter looked at her blankly.
"How about we get out of here." Luka said after noticing Mischa starting to sway in her seat. The four of them left the bar and Luka started calling for a cab. Jackie had to put Carters arm around her shoulder to hold him up. He had had a lot more drinks than Jackie had thought, or he just doesn't do well with alcohol. Then again, Mischa was just a few feet away leaning against the wall waiving at invisible things in the air. After a couple of minutes of waiting, a light rain started fall, then it came down in large drops.
"We can't wait much longer, we need to get them on a couch or something." Jackie said to Luka.
"Then we'll just walk."
"Where are we going to go?" Jackie asked.
"Uh...well, I doubt that they're going to like it if I bring two drunks into the hotel. Can we go to your place?"
"No. It's miles from here. Mischa and I took a cab."
"Well, then I guess John's place is the nearest."
"I know where it is." Jackie and Luka sad is unison.
There was an awkward silence for a moment.
"Let's... go." Luka finally said. He picked up Mischa, who was now mumbling to herself, and carried her in her arms. Jackie had Carter leaned up against her and they all started walking.
