The Dark Night
by Sharon Cummin
My day at work had been so long, and all I wanted to do was get home to rest and relax, but I couldn't. I'd agreed to go to a Halloween party with my best friend Patty, and I couldn't let her down.
As Patty's man introduced me to a friend of his, I thought about her earlier words.
“Let your hair down. Have fun. Hook up with a hottie," she said.
Maybe she was right.
How bad could it be?
