She and Josh had a serious thing about three shots going. It was bad timing when Josh arrived before she had finished the delightful new concoction. She panicked when she realized she didn't have time to slip into one of the beds down the hall. Her heart began skipping more beats than usual as she saw Josh sniffing. She knew it was over as he approached her, downing the last dregs, and sidling towards the trash can. She could have died of embaristament.
