Music blares through the night, streaming loudly through the entire two-story duplex, the bass of the speakers booming through the floor. There are red plastic cups and fake cobwebs scattered everywhere. Halloween-themed decorations line the walls and furniture, and there’s an abundance of candy and candy-flavored alcohol all over the countertops.
Loud, rowdy voices and even louder Pop music fill my ears, and in spite of the loudness around me, it’s hard to ignore the obnoxious laughter of some fellow dressed up as Gandalf sitting right across from me. We’re finally here at the ‘infamous’ Halloween house party, and after tonight, my ears probably won’t ever function again from the sheer torture I’m subjecting them to.
