You
should
totally
go,
Lacey.

I
sighed
and
threw
Alma
a
look
that
could
kill.

I
don't
know,
Alms.
It's
not
really
my
scene.


Who
cares?
You're
my
friend.
I
don't
have
a
date,
and
I
want
you
to
go
with
me.

She
grinned
at
me
and
shimmied
into
her
tenth
red
dress
of
the
day.


Alright,
but
you're
the
one
who
wanted
to
bring
along
an
unemployed
loser.
Wasn't
my
idea.
Just
remember
that.

Alma
rolled
her
eyes.

Whatever.
Soon
to
be
employed.
It's
just
a
downturn,
a
run
of
bad
luck.
That's
all.


Yeah.
I
guess.

I
wasn't
convinced.
My
bookkeeping
skills
were
up
to
par,
but
my
company
had
downsized
and
out
I
went.
I
was
just
another
Millenial
brat
in
need
of
a
good
job.


Oh,
hey.
Do
you
have
something
to
wear
tonight?

Alma's
brow
scrunched,
and
she
scrutinized
me.
The
shopping
trip
had
been
all
about
her,
and
I
was
fine
with
that.
Clothes
didn't
interest
me
much.


Yeah.
I
have
a
little
black
number
that
will
do
just
fine.

It
was
one
I'd
worn
a
hundred
times
before,
but
what
did
it
matter?
I
couldn't
afford
a
new
one.
I
was
watching
every
penny
these
days.


Good.
I'll
be
by
to
pick
you
up
at
7:00.
I'm
getting
this
one.
Let's
go.

Alma
jerked
her
head
toward
the
door,
red
dress
in
tow.

I
slunk
out
of
the
dressing
room
behind
her,
tucking
my
hair
behind
my
ears.
The
mirror
had
told
me
all
I
wanted
to
know
about
how
I
was
looking
three
months
after
the
layoff.
Same
shiny
long
brown
hair,
worried
blue
eyes,
no
smile.


Cheer
up,
Lacey.
It's
going
to
be
fine.
I
swear.
Tonight
will
be
fun.
Open
bar
and
all
that.
You
can't
lose.

Alma
grabbed
my
arm,
and
I
let
her
steer
me
to
the
car.

At
least
I
could
drink
my
troubles
away.

Oh
my
god,
it's
crowded
in
here.

I
struggled
against
the
press
of
people
at
the
mansion.


Well,
it's
Rock
Weldon's
place.
What
do
you
expect?

I
yawned.

Who's
that?

Alma
rolled
her
eyes
as
she
always
does
when
I
say
something
she
thinks
is
unbelievable
or
stupid.

I
can't
believe
you
sometimes,
you
know
that?

I
shrugged
and
grabbed
a
glass
of
champagne
from
the
nearest
waiter.
We'd
made
our
way
into
beyond
the
foyer.


He's
the
head
of
Regal
Enterprises.
You
know,
he's
at
the
top
of
the
food
chain
where
I
work.
The
CEO,
the
big
cheese
and
so
on.


Oh,
I
see.


I've
only
seen
him
in
photos.
I'm
just
an
editor.
You
know
how
it
goes.

Alma
shrugged.


I
guess.


Oh,
there's
my
manager.
I
need
to
speak
to
him.

Alma
hurried
away.


Dont...leave
me,

I
said
and
sighed.
She'd
already
gone
and
was
nothing
more
than
a
dot
in
a
sea
of
dresses
and
tuxes.
I
glanced
up
at
the
shimmering
chandelier.
The
place
was
gorgeous,
but
all
I
wanted
to
do
was
find
a
corner
to
hide
in
for
a
while
with
my
drink.

A
plate
of
shrimp
sailed
by
via
a
waiter,
and
I
plucked
a
few
of
those
and
started
plotting
my
escape
from
the
crowd.

I
could
see
a
staircase
and
beyond
it,
a
French
door.
Air.
I
needed
air.

I
raced
toward
it,
cursing
my
three-inch
heels.
I
threw
it
open
and
found
myself
alone
on
an
ornate
stone
balcony
of
sorts.
The
city
lay
before
me.
I
gulped
in
oxygen,
fighting
back
tears.

At
twenty-five
I
felt
washed
up,
that
only
a
desert
of
regret
and
missed
opportunities
lay
before
me.
