Good manners dictated that Charlie make an appearance during the party. It was in her penthouse, after all, and not showing her face was bound to draw a few questions from some. Normally she tried to avoid these sorts of things when it was when one of her siblings putting it on, only really capitulating to high-end parties when her parents forced her to attend. Holiday parties were also on that list of musts, but this was just a summer party with a high chance of infecting everyone that attended with Hag’s Fever. She had been telling herself for months now that the Weeklys were bound to get it at one point or another, with there being eight of them. It was only a matter of time…
But so far she had enjoyed the party. There were plenty of familiar faces, and a few new ones and ones she sort of recognized. The only ‘bad’ thing she had heard of so far was that apparently Monday slugged a guest at the start of the party, but Charlie had yet to hear anything more about it. She bounced between the party and her bedroom, mostly to get moments to herself and away from the blaring of the music for a few seconds. It was nice that all of their bedrooms were charmed to keep partygoers out. Cleaning up the main floor wouldn’t take long with all eight of them working on it but adding all of their bedrooms and bathrooms as well? That would be actual hell.
With things starting to wrap up and her siblings in various locations around the penthouse hanging with their remaining guests, Charlie decided that was it for her until it was time to clean. She had drank a fair bit, but even that was starting to wear off by now. Sleepiness was starting to creep into her eyes and she figured she could crash for an hour or two if her siblings decided they wanted to clean immediately after everyone was gone.
What she wasn’t expecting though, was standing in the doorway to her bedroom looking like a deer caught in the headlights as two people that she didn’t know quickly covered themselves up. In her bed! She muttered something inaudible even to herself before quickly slamming the door closed and bolting down the hallway wide-eyed and suddenly very, very awake. Her mind was racing as she tried to remember if she had given anyone access to use her bathroom, but that hadn’t been the case. The only plausible outcomes were that she had forgotten to close the door all the way or the charm failed for some reason. Either way, all she wanted to do was get away from it for a while and hope both were gone when she returned later. Just thinking about having to put her sheets through the wash at this hour made her whole body shiver.
Escaping to the stairwell that lead to the rooftop, Charlie ran up the stairs and burst through the door. It was thankfully empty, but there were signs of partygoers inhabiting it at some point in time during the night. A few empty beer cans and a turned over chair were her new companions as she flipped it upright and stuck herself next to one of their many tables. Inhaling the warm evening air didn’t really help with the fact that she had just witnessed to people going at it on her bed a few seconds ago. Charlie figured she should probably tell one of her siblings, specifically Friday since it was his party, but she was sure her dumb expression in the doorway would be enough to scare the couple off.
Letting out the deep breath she had just taken in, she laid her head down on the table, her hand finding its way to a lighter that was abandoned there with an opened pack of cigarettes. Charlie wasn’t one to resort to things like that, always being one of the health conscious family members but under these circumstances flicking the lighter on and off wasn’t going to get rid of the new stress she was now under. She pulled one of the cigarettes from the box and jammed it into her mouth, lighting it just as the door to the rooftop opened up.
