The brunette looked at her reflection in the mirror, the black dress she wore was nice but something was telling her tonight was not the night for the dress. With a sigh, she slipped out of the little number and checked her closet. During her time as ambassador she had grown her stock of dresses for events like the one tonight. Chewing her lip, ocean optics fell to the over-expensive engraved invitation on her dresser. She hadn't thought events like this would be open to her upon her return but she had been wrong.

The higher ups of Evermore never seemed to never get bored of throwing their fancy charity parties and Aaliyah knew it was because they enjoyed staying on top of the town gossip. The blue-eyed Diviner also knew some were whispering about her return or, more specifically, he departure and her time away. Shaking the thoughts from her mind she pulled a floor length satin blue dress from her closet. Slipping into it, her lips curled slightly in the corners in a hint of a smile. It was simple with a swoop neck and backless.

Grabbing the invite, Aal trotted downstairs, heels clicking on the hardwood floors. Slipping on a black dinner jacket she met the waiting car outside and climbed in. Running a hand through mocha hues, she pulled her hair over one shoulder and watched the lights pass as they made their way through the city. Before long they pulled up to a line of other vehicles that were also unloading passengers. "Here we go," the Necromancer grumbled, tucking her cellphone into her clutch and climbing out of the car as the door was opened.

Holding the train of her dress, she entered the extravagant mansion and accepted a flute of champagne when it was offered. She offered smiles but didn't pause as she made her way through the house and out to the back patio and garden. A string quartet played classic music in the background. Once outside, Aaliyah breathed the fresh air again, sipping her drink as she enjoyed being outside. She did enjoy parties but it was also different being at them alone. Surveying the garden, her eyes sparkled as they took in all the white twinkly lights. Lights, flowers, and candles seemed to fill every available space and the smell and the lighting was stunning because of it even if it was a bit much.

After a moment, the brunettes lips pursed slightly with determination and she turned to head back inside. She saw familiar faces quickly and paused to talk with a few people. Eventually the host made their presence known. The man made his way to the stop of steps, a fake, plastic smile plastered in place as he turned to address the room. Aaliyah's eyes were hard as she watched him as he began to drone on. The man was married and his wife was so in love but he was constantly unfaithful with women half his age. While not illegal, Aaliay thought he was a sleaze and was also sure half the money he raised for his charity ended up lining his own pockets....

If there was a single worst thing about being an ambassador in Evermore City, it was the social expectations that were placed on your shoulders. Being in a place like hers meant she had an invite to every party in town which in itself wasn’t a bad thing but the catch was that there was an expectation that she would actually show up to each of the events she was invited to. Sariah had never been much of a party girl but thanks to countless benefits, auctions and balls, she had quite the wardrobe building up.

Still, she decided to go for a short white dress which hugged her figure nicely but still allowed for free movement, it always bothered her when she went to parties only to be stuck sitting in a corner because her outfit wasn’t practical for the place she was in. She’d worked pretty late into the evening on approvals from the tech division of the organization meaning she’d had to rush around a little to get ready for tonight but she just managed to throw everything into her clutch purse right as she heard the taxi pulled up outside her door and before long she was on her way.

Upon arrival and she purposely avoided the cluster of press outside the event that shouted questions her way, namely why her attendance to the party was solo tonight. It still stung, remembering how she had lost a relationship recently and was now living the single life. She quickly made her way up the steps and upon an offer of a drink she took the glass and downed the whole thing without a thought. Taking a long breath she headed inside, glancing around the room to see the usual setup, clusters of fancy decorated tables, a dance floor which was hosting a few people gathered in groups and talking.

Sariah looked around for a while before spotting a table seat map and searching for her name on the list. When she finally found it, she was surprised to see a familiar name on the same table as her. She’d been made aware of the return of a couple of ex-ambassadors recently and she had to admit she was curious, she knew Evermore was like a magnet but what was it that brought Aaliyah Cole back to Evermore. With that she nodded and headed towards her place just in time for the host to give his empty speech about charity and applauded lightly.
