The flashing lights were dancing over the ceilings, passing over the tight clothes of the other party goers. Most everyone looked pretty plain. I thought about my impromptu call to Aaron. What was he thinking when I called him out of the blue like that? It had been a while since we talked, and maybe something could blossom from that?No one interesting was dancing, so I looked to the bar, taking big sips of my margarita. When I saw something that made my heart stop in my throat.Hugh Evans.The liquid in my mouth threatened to choke me. I couldn’t believe I recognized him so quickly. But that pang I felt in my chest was sincere, and as real as it got. My eyes widened, and I felt my palm started to sweat as my heart raced. I forgot myself.Had it really been five years? Even from that across the room, he didn’t look like he had aged at all since we were teenagers. Of course, he had always been older than me, that was part of his charm. He spotted me between the passing people around us and approached me. I looked around for Aaron. Still gone. How convenient for him. Maybe it was better this way.I slammed my drink, trying to act like I didn’t see him. He didn’t seem to fall for it. The whole room felt like it went silent.“Cat,” Hugh whispered. “I wasn’t sure if that was you.“I nodded, swallowing my drink. I was wrong too, he had aged, but gracefully. And not just physically either, I could already see the subtle changes in his demeanor, the slight lines on his face developing.“It’s good to see you, Hugh,” I stood like a plank on end, barely staying upright. He must’ve noticed, moving forward and embracing me. Oh god that felt good. I crumpled his shirt under my hands, holding him against me. He smelled like nostalgia, that faint and fleeting sensation. And briefly, I forgot why we broke up in the first place.He pulled away and smiled, his eyes crinkling ever-so-slightly, that wiseness creeping in.
