I decided to go to the party. I guess there was never really a question that I wouldn’t since Nicky had brought it up. We would drive up together and come back late that evening. I met them near the airport and left my car. The guy they had paired me up was with them. Curt was a nice looking guy, maybe about thirty-something. We introduced ourselves, and spent the ride up to Knoxville talking about general things. Nicky was in the front seat constantly turning around to jump into the conversation if it lagged. We seemed like a couple. I guess it really didn’t matter too much because I figured to join in with the others in the whole group thing anyway. Still it was good to have someone to be with until then. I guess it felt more like a first blind date.
