Scenes from Homecoming

Scenes from Homecoming
Ms. Bernard

As you enter through the doors of the basement gym, you’ll see lights that are the colours of the rainbow, flickering up and down. Hidden hanging creatures decorate the basketball hoops with witches and clowns. Black and orange balloons are spread out in the form of an arch, setting the perfect spooky background for a photo. The rich scent of buttery popcorn fills the air. Students fill the room, donning everything from party dresses and suits to actual costumes.  

The lights flick off, and that’s when the party starts. People file in one-by-one. Expressions of shock spread around the room and smoke machines set the mood. Small tables are placed with glowing necklaces on them, and a table sells snacks like chips and popcorn.

The DJ plays explosive party music, with Cardi B, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna blasting out of the boomboxes. Staff members on each side not only supervise us, but also join in the fun as they dance around.

I can’t help but notice that some people are actually having fun. Whether it’s playing around with the balloons, or interlocking hands with their friends on the dance floor. They move their bodies and hips into the rhythm of the music. They don’t need to force it, they just feel the music as it runs through their veins and echoes around the room.

As the party comes to an end,attendees form a circle with people screaming and shouting. They hype up those in the middle, who are dancing and showing off. Flashes come from the circle’s phones as they live stream and take photos. They want to remember this moment forever as  one that may never happen again.
