WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8TH: Time to put up Christmas trees! Head out to the farm, and let those guys cut down the best tree you can find. Afterwards, spend the night decorating it with lots of shiny ornaments and strings of popcorn.
No story. Lexi stayed in her house while everyone else went out and had fun cutting down trees. She briefly thought of calling Layla and seeing if they had gotten a tree, and then decided against it. 
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10TH: Quinn and Brooklyn are throwing a party for the holidays. Meet at Brooklyn's house. Everyone bring a gift wrapped, they’ll be donated to the orphanage so that underprivileged children can have a great Christmas.
I walked into Brooklyn's house and was warmly greeted by both Brooklyn and Quinn.

"Someone's a social butterfly," Leo observed as we sat down at the bar. He ordered us both drinks, and I didn't even say I didn't drink anymore. 

"Nah," I said, taking teeny sips from my drink. "They're just my friends,"

Leo eyed my drink, which I was not drinking very much. "What, do you not like it," He asked.

"No, I do," I said. "I'm just not much of a drinker,"

"Oh," Leo said awkwardly. "You never mentioned that,"

I shrugged, wanting to change the subject. Just then Alaska, Ava and Jenny came up, joining us at the bar. "Hey girls," I smiled brightly, turning away from Leo.

I gave them a 'Help Me' look, and Ava turned to Leo. "Hey Leo, I'm Ava. Can we just take Lexi away for a little bit," She asked brightly, being polite. "We'll bring her back, we promise,"

Leo, who couldn't refuse in front of Ava, nodded. "Sure,"

Alaska grabbed my wrist, pulling me away from an upset looking Leo. Once in the other room, Alaska looked at me. "What the h-ll was that,"

"I have no idea," I said, biting my thumb nail. "I...I don't know. I'm not so sure I like Leo very much,"

"Then dump him on his -ss, girl," Jenny said. "You shouldn't be with someone you don't feel connected to,"

'But it wasn't that easy,' I wanted to say but didn't. I just sighed. "I can't,"

"And why is that," Alaska demanded, hands on her hips.

I said nothing, and Ava pulled me into a hug. I sighed again, telling myself not to cry. "Why do I always have the worst luck with guys," I mumbled.

Jenny rubbed my back, trying to comfort me. "C'mon," She said. "Let's dance,"

I grinned. And then I thought. "What about Leo,"

"Forget him," Alaska and Ava said, almost in unison. "Deal with it later," Al said. "Tonight just have fun,"

Once out on the dancefloor, it was like the music was inside of me. I had always been a naturally good dancer, something that I had been thankful for at times like these. We joined up with Ruby, Daisy, and a new girl who I met, Harper. 

She shouted over the music, her hands raised over her head. "I'm Harper,"

"Nice to meet you," I smiled. "Lexi Cole,"

The rest of the night was a blur between dancing with my girls and taking a break, then getting up to dance again. 

That is, until Leo came over to me, looking angirly drunk. He pulled me off the dancefloor. "Hey," I said, p-ssed off. "What the h-ll,"

"What are you doing," Leo hissed. 

"What does it look like I'm doing,"

"Don't be nasty to me," Leo slurred. "You said you would be right back,"

I crossed my arms over my chest. "I know what I said, Leo, but I didn't mean it. Sorry," I told him, but I wasn't really sorry especially when he was wasted.

"Excuse me," Leo asked, grabbing my arm. His grasp was tight, and I pulled out of it.

"What the f-ck, Leo," I shouted, and at that moment Ruby, Alaska, and a few other girls I had previously been dancing with came over to see what was going on. The rest of them just looked the other way when they saw he was drunk.

"Don't be a b-tch, Lex," He said, stumbling. 

I almost laughed to myself, even though on the inside I was on the verge of tears for the second time tonight. I shook my head.

"Lexi, I'm sorry," Leo cried. "I'm sorry, please forgive me,"

Ah, the sad, regretful stage of being drunk, something I had known all too well. He tried to hug me, kiss me, hold my hand, anything; but I just pulled away.

"Get away from me," I said, and stalked off, a group of girls who would do anything for me following.

Once outside, Alaska, Ruby and Jenny had followed.

"Are you okay," Jenny asked, a look of worry in her eyes.

"Yeah," I said and sighed. "I just need to get home," I took a step towards the street and sweared under my breath.

I turned around as the three girls made their way back up the steps. "Hey," I called and they turned around. "Can one of you drive me home? I forgot I came with Leo," Then I remembered him. He couldn't drive. 

"Yeah," Alaska said, walking down the steps again. "I'll drive you,"

I called a cab for Leo while we were in the car. When we got to my empty, dark house, Alaska spoke. "Are you sure you're going to be okay all alone,"

"Yeah, I'll be fine," I said, gathering my things.

"Okay, if you're sure,"

I nodded and smiled. "Thanks, Al. See you,"

I walked into my dark house, not bothering to turn on any lights. I stripped my dress off and got into my cold bed. Before I knew it tears soaked the pillow. I was alone again, and there was nothing I could do about it.
