Thomas circles the parking lot, attempting to find a spot. My palms become sweaty and my throat dry. I've been here multiple times, I know what to expect. But I haven't seen my parents in a week and I'm nervous to be in the same room as them.

When we finally find a parking space, Thomas and I make our way inside. More people arrive with us, a line forming at the entrance. We're good to go and follow everyone else in front of us.

The party hall is a huge part of the company. The tall ceilings make it appear even more spacious. And it's beautifully decorated each time. With creme colored tablecloths and a centerpiece adorning each table.

I recognize a few faces from previous parties. A lot of them are new though which is a good thing for business reasons.

Thomas pulls the chair out for me as we are seated near the middle. Because it's just us two, we got one of the smaller round tables.

My family isn't hard to miss, they sit in the same spot every year. Right by the stage along with the top investors.

There's soft music being played that is just barely loud enough amongst the chatter of people.

Thomas notices me looking at him. "Do you regret coming yet?"

I tilt my head with a grin. "Of course not, " I answer sarcastically.

"Good." He laughs, knowing I'm only joking.

A waiter stops by to ask what we want to drink and to bring us some appetizers. Everyone turns their voice down to a hushed whisper. The main company owners, including my father, standing up on the stage to greet us.

After the usual introduction, they take a seat to let everyone get situated. The noise goes up once again.

Thomas socializes wit

arents' table before making my way to the bathrooms. It's in another hall, the door being right next to the stage.

I make my way in, checking my phone for the first time all night. I text Alice, pleading her to save me before I hide in here all night.

Putting my phone back in my purse, I set it on the counter. Once I'm done, I wash my hands and fix my hair. I respond to Alice a few times, wishing that I could be in a pair of sweatpants and lounging on the couch.

Thomas said we would leave soon because I still have to drive back. I'm not going complain about it because I knew what I agreed to. So I'll just wait until he's done before we leave.

With one last look in the mirror, I get ready to leave when the door opens right as I'm about to push it open.

I stand aside, letting them walk in. My eyes are set on the floor until I a small surprised gasp. Lifting my head up to meet my mothers' blue eyes.

My mouth falls open, a similar reaction on her face. She's definitely more shocked than I am. I knew she was here obviously.

She straightens up, her brows creasing. "Beatrice?"
