  143. >you didn't feel so good since a long time ago
  144. >you feel like you do some impact
  145. >you feel like your friends are actually your friends instead of people you just happened to know
  146. >thinking about this you feel some sort of warmth inside of you, inside your very soul
  147. >but what should you do next?
  148. >of course you want to make more parties, it's just unquestionable
  149. >but besides that, what next?

  165. >you could look at it forever were it not that it also stirred something inside of you

  168. >picking up fresh t-shirt from drawer and pulling up nearest pair of jeans you to your anteroom
  169. >locking door with keys that you conveniently found in the pants that you wear right now you rush down the stairs, forgetting the elevator
  170. >as you exit your commieblock you breathe in a lungful of air and exhale, enjoying fresh atmosphere

  186. >"Who's there"
  187. "It's me, Dmitriy. You said you have a big room for a big party"
  188. >"Ok, come in"
  189. >as the door beeped you pull the handle and entered the building
  190. >you remember being Roman's friend since the first semester
  191. >thanks to him you managed to get through programming course and after that you were constantly helping each other
  192. >despite this, you never really hang out together, only meeting in uni or online
  193. >so it was surprise for you to see just how spacious his apartment was
  194. "Wow, i never knew you had such a big apartment. How did your parents manage to score this one?"
  195. >"They are artists, and got rich by selling the paintings to some European duke. After that they got pretty big and started to go on presentations and such. This room is their "home gallery" they use to present their paintings to some oligarch that potentially interested in buying those. I personally never really liked doing paintings and instead got into web design"
  196. >the room that he was talking about looked more like small assembly hall
  197. "Are you sure you are willing give me it for a party?"
  198. >"Of course, i willing. Your previous party was terrific and I'm not going to deny you make a bigger one just because i decided to hold this place for myself"

  204. >you need something stronger
  205. >but what?
  206. >answer came in form of a skydiving club brochure
  207. >idea seems strangely welcome, and you guess there is no harm in trying
  208. >eventually time h has come
  209. >you are in a airplane
  210. >you and your partner both tied to a parachute
  211. >signal to jump is on
  212. >you take step in to the sky, and your partner jumps
  213. >for half a second everything seems like you expected
  214. >wind blows, you rush through the air
  215. >but suddenly, the sense of pressure in your head that you had back at party comes back
  216. >after that, everything seems fine
  217. >the flock of your hair that flipped in your field of vision remained its natural color
  218. >but soon you realize what's wrong
  219. >you feel not your partner, nor your backpack
  220. >instead, you start felling strange pull in your back
  221. >suddenly pull gets stronger
  222. >you look back and see wings
  223. >you have no idea what they do there but you don't mind it
  224. >scratch that
  225. >you DO mind it
  226. >it's so cool
  227. >you start to feel air pass under your wings
  228. >you twirl in the air as if you do in thousands of times
  229. >you look down
  230. >earth looks like a patchwork quilt, filled with various shades of green and gold with occasional rooftop
  231. >you feel overjoyed and lose yourself in gliding
  232. >after indeterminate amount of time you finally land
  233. >immediately you fall on the ground as pressure in your head builds up again
  234. >suddenly, you feel weight of your partner on your back
  235. >he looks pale, with expression full of terror
  236. >you think back to your hallucination and it's implication
  237. >ohshit.png
  239. >be Dimitriy
  240. >the week has passed and the new party has been started
  241. >you have done a bunch of things and even managed to score an actual, if amateur, DJ
  242. >and it's just the beginning!
  243. >you invited your friends and their friends and even some of the friends of friends of your friends, so many people should join soon
  244. >and the Radion said that he will come to your party to tell you something
  245. >everything is great
  246. >together with you, Roman is looking at the crowd
  247. >"I still can't believe you managed to pull that off, dear"
  248. "I know. It would be very hard if i tried to do it by myself, but i asked everyone to help, and they did as they can, just like you!"
  249. >"I guess. It wasn't that hard to allow you in. If everyone helped even by just a little, together they sure did a great deal"
  250. >suddenly, the bell rings, barely audible over the music even near the entrance
  251. >you zoom to the door, impatiently opening it
  252. "Hi Radion, nice to see you! Come join in."
  253. >"Are you sure? I have some really freaky news to tell you."
  254. "Yeah, I'm sure! You can tell it at the party"
  255. >you basically drag him in and look at his face as he gazes confusingly
  256. >"Dude, where did you pulled this lair out of magic hat or something? How did you score this thing?"
  257. "A friend helped me! There he is."
  258. >you point at Roman, and he waves at you, noticing his mention.
  259. "So, what was so super-duper important that you wanted to tell it in person?"
  260. >he thinks for few seconds and then replies
  261. >"Uh, do you remember this weird hallucination back at previous party? I had it again and..."
  262. >his speech stops short as pressure rolls over both of you again
  263. >when you focus back at reality, you see that his rainbow hair is now brought some friends
  264. >"Yours eyes blue"
  265. "Yours purple"
  266. >after this short exchange you both look around
  267. >everyone at party sporting new hair colors
  268. >"W-what is happening here?"
  269. >you look back and see that Roman now have purple hair, styled in big wavy curls
  270. >"that's what we try to understand. Do you have some separate room, where we can discus this alone?"
  271. >"Yes, sure"
  272. >You three part with raving crowd and go inside some kind of closed
  273. >"So, can someone explain to me what is going on?"
  274. >"Everything started a week ago, on a previous party. Both me and Dima got some strange headaches, and then we saw that everybody got some freaky paint jobs"
  275. "Em, it started before that"
  276. >Radion looks at you with disbelief
  277. >"And you didn't tell me? Why?"
  278. "I thought it was not that important. It happened in a shop and all it only made some food look funky"
  279. >Everybody went silent for a moment before Radion replied
  280. >"So, did you had any accidents before that? Did you fall into pool of radioactive paint or something?"
  281. "No. But if you think about it, i DID take part in some medical testing right before all this started happening. And it was after that testing that i decided to organize that party..."
  282. >"So you took some drug that altered your mind and now alters our perception of reality and you didn't tell us?"
  283. "Well, when you put it that way it sure sounds spooky. But i don't feel like I'm altered, i feel like i have some courage to do something i wanted for a long time. I feel like i can actually have a substantial dialog with people outside of absolutely necessary situations. I feel like i can do something without giving up half-way through."
  284. >"I get it dear, you actually got a life. But maybe we should talk to those who gave this medicine to you?"
  285. "Yeah, you right. Now let me check- Oh, i got a new e-mail from them!"
  286. >"Who even uses e-mail to actually talk now?"
  287. >you hastily opened this mail and read it
  288. >Dear Dmitriy Petrarch Pirogi, i must inform you that there might be some medium-to-long time side effects. If you feel any unusual symptoms, please, report them as soon as possible.
  289. >"oh"
