They stood together in the chill air. The night was quiet now, the cacophony over for the time being. Wisps of smoke drifted in the stillness, momentarily hiding the stars. The ground was hard beneath their feet, their breath adding to the twirling smoke. The city lights twinkled below them, a hive of activity still, despite the late hour.
“I wonder what the year will bring?” asked Andrew, squeezing Liz’s hand.
Liz was silent for a moment, pondering the question, “Good things, I hope” she finally replied.
“I’m cold now” she added, “Shall we go back? Rejoin the party?”
“Just a little longer.” said Andrew, “They’ll not miss us. Most of them are too drunk to notice!” Liz laughed, "And you’re not?” “Well maybe a little” he grinned.
“Where do you think we’ll all be next New Year?” asked Liz,” Most of us graduate this summer. It’ll be strange being in the world of work”
“It’ll be good to have some money though” grinned Andrew.
Liz shivered, “We really need to go back, I can’t feel my feet, and this dress is definitely not made for standing on a hill side on New Year’s Day!”
“Okay, okay, come on then,” said Andrew, turning back towards the house, "could do with some of that warm punch anyway”
The ground crunched beneath their feet, strangely satisfying in the stillness. The lights blazed a welcome and the music gradually drifted towards them as they drew closer. “I feel warmer already” commented Liz.
“It’s just the anticipation of that warm punch,” said Andrew, winking. They headed round to the patio doors, open despite the freezing temperature. A few couples danced on the terrace under the stars and party lights. Most were indoors, just sitting now and chatting, enjoying the camaraderie of almost three years living, playing and studying together. Andrew and Liz headed to the bar and filled their glasses with steaming punch. Once more holding hands, they sat down on a spare sofa as the clock chimed, celebrating the fact that the New Year was now four hours old.

Good descriptions. I would have loved a little more meat in the article. Ruth Brown
