The club was playing my favourite song, Tonight I am lovin you. For parties— I always go for Enrique Iglesias. But tonight, I wasn’t enjoying my Red wine and certainly not the song. The crowd is insane tonight. But it doesn’t matter where I am. That thing...is still there. That scared little girl, bullied and taken for granted.

Over the time I have turned myself into this arrogant and bossy person. Even my face says buzz off faster than my mouth can. I have my reasons though. Being vulnerable, is the last thing I want for myself. And this drink, has always helped me to gulp my insecurities down. Being the eldest child, had its’ own perks. I was always asked to be strong even when I did not want to.

Fake it till you make it...right?

It was probably my third glass, when I felt a hand crawling on my back. I turn around impulsively and hit my molester. Well, surprisingly it was my poor bestie pouting at me and rubbing her nose like a child. I wanted to laugh at her but I couldn’t. She survives my punch...she can survive anything.

"I am sorry; I didn't saw you coming." I gasped.

"It’s fine. Getting your attention was hurtful though. You are spacing out a lot these days." Samantha aka my bestie and my-part-time-mom stated.

“It’s just work you know. Let's go. I will drop you home. You have appointments tomorrow?" She nodded but didn’t say anything. I know she was bothered about me. But there are things which I can’t share. Not even with her. Afterall, her brother is my fiancé. Well, soon-to-be-ex-fiancé. Standing up from my seat I passed my card to the bartender.

"Good night girlie, see you soon?"

He will see me sooner than he thinks. He is a nice company to keep—gives a regular rub to my ego.

"Good night Chang. And yes, you will see me soon. You know that. Thanks man." After giving him a half hug over the table, I and Samantha exited the floor. We got company at gates, the club bouncers.

"Hey girls, drive safe.”

"you know I will. I will keep her safe.” I said dramatically throwing my hands up in the air. Then I waved them bye and walked towards the loves of my life. This place was so peaceful; I can spend my entire life here. All I can see— were sexy big-ass cars. Most of the supercars in Seattle, are probably here.
