Squaring her shoulder Jade stepped from the safety of the car and stared up at the brightly lit windows of the mansion before her. a grim smile tugged at the corners of her Mouth as she walked up the stone steps to the oaken doors. Not for the first time she wondered if attending this party was a bad idea. They're where hundreds of more appropriate places to do an interview, why had she let them talk her into going to a major bash. She mentally reminded herself to give Billy a swift kick the next time she saw him. self-consciously she tugged at her skirt and ran one fine boned hand through her shoulder length blond locks. Scolding herself for being so silly she slid her bag over one shoulder and pulled open the door with a trembling hand. This was certainly not the first or the last major party she would attend. In fact if she wanted to marry Phil she would have to get used to the party scene. Stepping into the main foyer she wondered if maybe it was the actual meeting of Kelly cooper that was giving her butterflies or the fact that money seemed to ooze out of the walls, Which in it self was crazy. She hated going to these kinds of things but her job required her to do a lot of socializing and tonight was no exception. If they had wanted to meet her on top of the empire state building she would have gone. When she was forced to attend a social function she usually brought a friend but tonight she was staging it. Not by choice of course, but when your boyfriend was an up and coming rock god you had to do some things, ok you had to do a lot of things alone. Steeling herself she smiled and pushed her way through the door, Making her way to the guest table. She had worked too hard to get this interview to blow it now. Signing in she sighed and turned around, ready to take on whatever might be tossed at her over the course of the night. You're late. Growled Billy with a boyish grin he appeared behind her in the hallway. Am I going to turn into a pumpkin? she asked as he took her arm, Leading her down the hall. Do you know how long I have waited? Feeling guilty she gave him a weak smile and a slight shrug. I am so sorry I was late but you know how hellish traffic can get. Chuckling he raked the hair out of his eyes and flashed her another grin. I don't suppose you happened to look at the clock before you called Phil now did you? Blushing she gave him a small pout. Guilty as charged your honor. Do you have any idea how long I have been dodging Kate? For over two hours I have been hiding in the kitchen thanks to you and your damn Romeo and Juliet crap. She keeps whining about meeting Blaze and Kelly. Have you tried bug spray? She asked, giggling as she Tried to ease his tension. Damn it Jade she's driving me crazy. Why did I ever let you talk me into a blind date with her, The chicks a psycho hose beast. Rolling her eyes she let Billy slip his arm around her waist and lead her towards the ballroom. You didn't't have to go out with her and as I recall I warned you. Her words where lost by the noise of the crowd as they stepped into the ballroom. Her breath caught in her throat as she looked out into the sea of color. She could barely contain her excitement. The room was huge and packed with all manners of dress and people. When the men of DarkWinds threw a party they spared no expense. Giddy with excitement she scanned the room in hopes of seeing a few famous faces. Gabbing Billy's arm she moved to pull him into the crowd when Kate came rushing over, latching herself to Billy's other arm. With a fake smile she glared openly at Jade. There you are She purred up at the boy. I have been looking all over for you. Cooing in his ear she leaned heavily against him, her head on his shoulder. Their playing our song and i want to dance. With a tight smile Jade nodded to the other woman. Hello Kate. Narrowing her eyes at the blond Kate tosses her an icy smile and gently tugged on Billy's arm to let him know she was ready to leave. Hello Jade. she said with mock sweetness, How's the book coming?” It's going good. How's the kids? Fine. And Scott? He's good. Nodding she tossed Kate a wicked smirk. Good to hear it. I will have to tell Phil that I ran into you. He's in California right now working on the album but ill make sure and say hello for you She hated rubbing her ex into Kate's face like that but sometimes you had be a bitch to survive. Sighing she watched as Kate drug Billy out onto the dance floor. With a shake of her head she made her way Further Click here to read the rest of this story (167 more lines)
