Nights like this were something normal for Luke. He wasn’t the kind that stayed put in one place, even when going out. He always felt like either driving around a lot for no specific reason other than the pleasure of it, or to hit some clubs or parties, drink or smoke something and find girls to entertain him. He wasn’t sure when exactly did his nights become all this, but he didn’t regret not even one of them. His family didn’t approve of his ways, but he didn’t care about that. It was his life and the only one that could make him feel bad about something like this wasn’t in his life anymore.
He left the campus with some of the guys he shared some classes with, stopping at a club to get the night started. He always liked to start the night with three shots of something, didn’t really matter what. This night, one of the guys brought some joints for them to smoke, and after an hour out, he was already in a hazy happy state, but still very still on his feet. His body was used to this treatment and didn’t protest so quickly anymore.
One of the guys he was with said he wanted to stop by a bar to say hi to some friends, and Luke didn’t mind the idea of another place with drinks and possible hook ups opportunities. It never was hard for him to find girls, and sometimes, because of that, he was being picky about them. He would look for a specific type or look some nights and he wouldn’t stop or call the night to an end until he found her. It was his personal challenges when he felt like things were getting to easy.
While his friend went to a table to say hi to some people, Luke move to the bar to order a drink, his eyes already scanning the place for girls that would catch his attention. His eyes stopped at a blonde he spotted at the bar, already having ‘friendly’ males around her giving her attention with more than their eyes. He smirked a bit, thinking that she seemed such an easy target. And by her movements, she was drunk to. He was already planning to steal her attention for the night, when he stopped from walking, as a wave of shock hit him hard and made his smirk drop to the ground.
’Phoena..?’ he wasn’t sure he was seeing clearly. That blonde that was happily drinking and laughing was Phoena. Letting others touch her and get close to her while they threw casual innuendos at her and she laughed at them like she was enjoying that. His mouth formed a straight line, as his jaw clenched and tension ran up and down his body. What the hell was she doing?! Was she out of her mind?
Heavy steps made him walk once more, moving to the bar, grabbing her by the shoulder to turn her a bit towards him. ”What the hell are you doing?” he wasn’t sure why, but he was barely containing his anger. One of the men there moved a bit towards him ”Hey, man, we were talking here, do you mind?” Luke slowly turned his head towards him, as his eyes hardened even more. ”Fuck off. Now.” he warned with a low growl. The man hesitated a bit, as he wasn’t sure if he wanted to get into a brawl with Luke or not. The fox shifter was obviously taller than him and seemed like he could hold himself well into a fight. It wouldn’t be his first fight and certainly not the last. Another one of the guys there grabbed his shoulder from his side, ”Hey, asshole, why don’t you fuck o..” he didn’t get to finish the sentence, because he found himself with a punch in his nose and thrown away a few meters. ”Now.” Luke muttered through his teeth, his fist red and throbbing from the hard impact with that guy’s face. Something from the fury in his eyes made them give up and move away. He didn’t waste more time with them, and he turned to Phoena, trying to contain his anger, still waiting for an answer. Why was she doing this?
