Chapter 18 

At precisely 10 o’clock in the evening, Sherri’s car came to a steady stop outside the Lithern Club. She exited the vehicle and handed the keys to the security guard

True to its reputation as the prime bar in Athana, the Lithern Club exuded luxury from its exterior alone. Natalie was somewhat hesitant to go inside

Knowing her best friend’s intentions, Sherri couldn’t let it slide. Then she told Natalie, You can’t do something so unethical. If you bail on me tonight, we’ll cut ties.” 

You’d better watch fewer soap operas,” Natalie replied

Soap operas are so entertaining. You just don’t get it,Sherri said

Natalie wore a black formfitting kneelength dress that evening. Her face had a subtle natural makeup look, comfortable and effortless. Her dark curly hair cascaded down, creating a beautiful aesthetic

Standing there, one could feel the class divide. This was where the wealthy gathered

Natalie couldn’t bear to spend her hardearned money here

The second floor housed VIP seating, undoubtedly a spot for the affluent to sit above and look down on everything

Indeed, poverty could limit one’s imagination. There was nothing you couldn’t achieve, only things hadn’t thought of. 

The temperature inside was relatively high. Sherri grabbed Natalie and found a nice spot where they could oversee the entire dance floor

Natalie hung her jacket on the back of the chair and lazily leaned against the bar counter. Then she asked the bartender for at lowproof drink
