Anita wasn't sure what to make of Mia's friend, Guy.
Naturally, he was so happy to see her. Really, Anita was sure he was her boyfriend. They were so close. The way they smiled at each other. Anita honestly felt out of her element at the underground party. There was so much going on with the dark, the dancing lights, bodies moving.
She thought she might have a panic attack. A part of her just knew something might crash overhead and kill them all. She could hardly breathe of the thought of it.
She hadn't been to anything quite like this. These were places that Theresa thrived in. She met people, made connections. It was so exciting to people like Theresa and Mia.
Anita knew Theresa would be Mia's best mate if given half the chance. But here Anita was following Mia around like a lost puppy. And there was Guy, laughing with Mia as if they had so much to catch up on.
Anita just watched. She waited. She wasn't sure what she was waiting for. The music was quite impressive as it thundered on. She did her best to stay calm. Her eyes closed. And then she heard Mia say to him.
"Look, what I've brought you."
Anita's eyes sprang open, and she saw the smile on Guy's face.
