This is my first short story that I whipped up in a night and I'll probably do more in the future. They will all be based on true events, like this one. I hope you enjoy.
Lonely quickly skips up the steps to his friends house and stops face to face with the door. With a quick turn of the knob he is instantly teleported to the care free world of social intoxication and loud music. He is greeted by his friends who offer him drinks and warm greetings.
