Alicia wasn't actually sure if she was looking forward to the party. A week ago the idea had been her giddy, and slightly giggly, but not all she could think about was Adrian bloody Pucey and no amount of distraction had helped her. Ryan had been dropped off with her mother, spending the night thank the lord, and she'd been allowed to help get the house and herself ready in peace.
Nibbles and snacks had been put out - Alicia had generally helped with some pouring out of crisps and not actually eating them all - as well as some booze and soft drinks. About half an hour before Alicia had gone to get ready, changing into a dress (2 in a week? what was going on?) and procrastinating a little. She couldn't help but wonder if Adrian would come, perhaps that was why she'd actually made an effort with the dress.
Finally she tottered downstairs, grinning as she picked up a bottle of beer and walked straight through Ned who had ventured out into the living room. "Surely you're not wearing that? It hardly covers your knees!" While she usually ignored him she couldn't help but tugging lightly at her dress selfconciously, it brushed her knees, what more did he want? Maybe she should change.
"It's kind of weird being in and Ry not being around..." she told Angie and Katie lightly, frowning a little. It had been a while since she'd been in the house without him and it felt odd.
NOTE: Ned is the girls ghost, he's uptight and will be horrified at it all. Think Percy but dead.
