hampshire nodded. it might have been a good idea to stop and rake a quick nap so that he wasn't driving tired, but perhaps his mind was so semi-delirious with sleep that it hadn't had the time to ponder that thought. "we're all going to get busted," he said, almost grinning. he glanced in the mirror, catching a fleeting glimpse of lili's tired face, eyes closed. brown. he sighed, pressing a hand to his chin thoughtfully. "only half of the people are going to show up to the seven and eight am classes. maybe not even that," he muttered.
honestly, hampshire wasn't sure if he was going to his 8am. if they got back at 3am and he got his four hours of sleep, he would be fine. but really? 8am for decoding victorian literature? he wasn't sure he could do it without anchor of vodka burning his throat, clearing his sinuses.
parties weren't even really his thing. he would have much rather preferred to stay in his dorm and torch various things, including but not limited to plastic clothes hangers, saran wrap, and his fingers. but would he rather stay back and burn materials, or drive a stranger into the middle of nowhere, have his first kiss, share a bottle of liquor? all of his thoughts seemed to conflict with each other all at once, swirling around, and the alcohol wasn't even talking.
hampshire nearly laughed. now, he would have to deal with tomorrow, with the three bigs that threatened him early today, with potentially missing his first class that he didn't really care about. he'd have to deal with lili, and that kiss. kisses, plural. kisses that nearly became something more, something he could have had if he wanted it, probably. he knew he wasn't a good person. but he was charismatic, and smart, and conniving, and manipulative, and charming. he got what he wanted.
but now...he didn't know what he wanted, not in the slightest. he didn't want lili. he didn't want to get beaten to a pulp, and he didn't want to disappoint his father. "now," he said, finally, softly, "we pretend we care about our classes tomorrow," he chuckled, glancing back at her. he wasn't quite sure if lili was awake or not.
