The girls left. Ricky wasn't quite sure what to make of it. They'd still seemed unconvinced, but, hey, at least their talk and warnings and shit had all just been fuckin' bluster. There wasn't really anything to worry about after all. Now all he had to do was go back to the party and just make sure everything was good and stuff, make sure everyone was having fun, maybe meet up with Jamie again and hang out. She was a cool girl. They were all cool, all of 'em.

But instead, for some reason, Ricky just sat down by the tunnel wall and stared at his hands. He shook the bottle in them. Still half full. He took another swig. It tasted like shit. Of course it did. Why was he expecting anything else?

He closed his eyes, just for a second. Just taking a breather. It had... he felt like it had been a busy time, somehow, like he was more tired than he had any right to be. He couldn't even make sense of everything. He closed his eyes for a little. He just had to remember what he was doing in these fuckin' tunnels.

He drifted off to sleep.

When he awoke, something was making this awful beeping noise. He blinked a few times. Great. Just the right thing for a hangover. He didn't feel hungover. He considered that, and took a swig from the nearby bottle, then nearly spat it out. It was worse now, somehow. It smelled acidic.

The beeping was intensifying. He stood up and looked around, but he couldn't see anything in the dark. The sound was coming from somewhere nearby, though, somewhere very nearby. He blinked a few more times. Still the beeping continued, faster and faster.

And then, all of a sudden, it stopped, and so did Ricky's muddled thoughts.
