The sun had set a while ago and the bonfire was in full swing. People were milling about laughing with friend, dancing, eating and drinking, sitting near the fire. All of that fun, normal party behavior. The stars twinkled in the sky and everything, if one were to take enough notice of it, was magical. But what could you expect from a Nemare party? There were always magical, just part of the gig. Though really not everyone could be completely happy at these events. Sure it was nice and the food was really good as per usual, but still things just weren't all good.
A blonde girl sat on a log a ways away from where most of the students were hanging around. She took a sip from the cup in her hand and sighed, her blue eyes flicking around her classmates before she glanced at the sky. Just how long had it been since the party had started? Or at least since her had arrived? She couldn't quite recall. It was likely only an hour or so, maybe nearing two hours, but had felt like an eternity. Sure at first she had mingled and talked with some of her friends. She was enjoying it then. But the excitement wore off after the first fifteen minutes.
At that point the senior had moved over to the food and took a plate and a drink and moved over to the log. Alice grumbled softly to herself about how stupid this all was and then she mentally started debating if she should just leave. She wasn't really participating, other than occasionally getting up to get another drink, or maybe some food, so what reason did she have to stay? Maybe it was because she didn't really do much at any parties making her feel like she needed to be there for at least a while longer. That seemed reasonable. But it wasn't that she hated parties. She liked the idea of it but then when she got there if she didn't find a group of friends fairly quickly and the stay with them, she didn't have a thing to do. She didn't want to dance, only because when ever she danced with a guy, her mind often wandered to thinking about what it would be like to dance with the once guy she really wanted to dance with, and that was hardly fair to her dance partner, even if they didn't notice. So that left.... nothing really to do, but she would hold out for a bit longer and see if anything interesting might happen to make her stay, though she wasn't sure anyone would approach her with the semi-bored look on her face.
