My heart starts to race at the sound of his voice over the loud speaker. Immediately I seek out the location of the booth and spot him as he walks out of it. He looks good. I can’t believe he’s here. I know my eyes are bugging out of my head but I can’t stop staring. Not only is Nick the DJ tonight but there he is, in my direct line of sight with his arms around a girl. And she’s very attractively smiling up at him.
“I’m sorry Em!” Kat yells in my ear. “I swear he was not the DJ listed to play, you saw the posters outside the club too.”
I swipe at my eyes as angry tears form in them. She’s right, we had both checked. There must have been a cancellation or something, it’s the only explanation. I stand still as a statue as I watch Nick put his arm around the girl’s shoulder and they head for the exit.
“Em.” Kat’s pulling on my arm. “Please look at me.”
When I can no longer see Nick, I turn to face her. The look on her face is a mixture of pity and pleading.
“Who’s for another drink?” I ask with false cheer. I don’t wait for a reply from either of the girls as I hastily make my way to the bar. I shove my way to the front, not caring about the toes I’m stepping on or the rudeness of my approach. I don’t care that I am cutting in line. I yell out my order for a shot of tequila. Before I’ve even paid, I have drunk it and ordered another. Kat spins me back to face her.
“I’m sorry Em. I swear I didn’t know.”
I turn away from her. I feel the hot tears about to overflow from my eyes as I hand over my money to the bartender and swallow my second shot. I look Kat square in the eyes.
“I want to go home.”

I am a New Adult/Romance author. I am a married mother of three that lives in a small town in country New South Wales, Australia. I am a bookaholic and if I am not found tapping away at the laptop, you will find me hiding from the kids with my kindle in hand. My other passion is music. I love everything from indie alternative to hard rock, pop to retro, and I love to play it LOUD!
My first self-published novel Finding My Way was released in June. It is the first in a trilogy. It is a tale of love and friendship and finding your path in life. The second book, Crossroads, is to be released on September 13. I am currently 'finding my way' around this whole new world of self-publishing and self-promoting... it has definitely been an eye-opener so far! I hope to have New Beginnings (the third and final book in the Finding My Way series) published sometime in November.
