Anastasia POV

Four weeks later...

Lange 20th Anniversary Ball

It's the beginning of December and has been four weeks since I've haven't talked to Fabian.

The past few weeks I've been keeping my distance, trying my hardest to avoid communicating with him.

The silent treatment is a bitch sometimes. It's really difficult to ignore someone who you truly thought they meant something to you.

I can't control myself but to ignore his FaceTimes, phone calls, and texts. I'm trying my best to forgive and forget him but it's really difficult when you are faced in front of the social media.

"Okay, the final touch, " Alexis said, placing a silver hair accessory on my hair

"Okay, the final touch, " Alexis said, placing a silver hair accessory on my hair. "Here you go, goodness Ana, you look so fucking beautiful.

"Thanks, " I replied in shyness, repeatedly looking at myself in the mirror and back to my ruffles on my dress.

"What's wrong?"

"I'm nervous."

"You don't have to be nervous. It's a ball."

"I know, but I haven't gone to an event since... you know."

''Understandable, just take a breather, relax, and don't overthink too much.''

''I'll try.''

She tapped my chin and said ''Hey, look at me.''


''Ana, it's going to be fine. Don't worry.''

She pulls me forward slowly to get off from my seat and gave me a light hug. Alexis passed me over my mask with my black mini purse and mentos.

''Have fun!'' She yelled with enthusiasm as I left the door.

''I can't wait to be back in bed, '' I whispered to myself.

At the parking lot, I was stopped by Darius, Fabian's limo driv

is not as simple as it may seem to be.''

He continued to search for me, darting his eyes to every woman and went on to say '' Forgiveness is subjective and the act of forgiveness can have many meanings. We all make mistakes. And I just want to say that I am truly sorry to those I've done wrong, in this moment like this I believe we should celebrate the good, the success and the purpose of this company. So thank you for coming out and enjoy this evening.''

As Fabian left, the crowd clapped even harder, congratulating him as I backed away from the crowd and went to the ladies restroom quickly.

I took off my mask and took a huge breather, pampering myself and trying so hard to not overthink anything between Fabian and me. I retouched my red lipstick and placed the mask on again, leaving the bathroom and slowly made my way back to the ball.

''Red looks good on you, '' Fabian said, stopping me from going in the ballroom.

''Wrong person, '' I whispered, placing my head down.

He touched my chin with his thumb and index finger together and replied: ''I know it's you, Anastasia, '' he whispered back.
