"It's way too late to back out now. The invitations were handed out."

Zena grumbled. "Yeah, I guess you're right."

Eva yawned lazily and rose from the bed. Her body ached all over, a nice result of stress.

Her long hair looked frizzier than usual and her brown eyes were bloodshot. She had looked like a tornado survivor all week. She was not digging this new look.

She tried to clean up as best as she could by brushing the messy mane and braiding it neatly. There wasn't much she could do about her bare face so she just hoped that the redness in her eyes faded. As much as she hated to admit it, she didn't want a certain werewolf thinking that she looked like a mess.

Eva pushed the door open and ran into Zya who was about to knock. "Finally, you're awake."

"Finally?" Eva asked.

"Yeah, it's 3PM" she replied.

"There's no way I slept for so long."

"Looks like you needed your beauty sleep. You should go back to bed and get some more of that though because you look like sh!t" Zya said and laughed at Eva's frown.

Internally, Eva was glad that things were finally getting back to normal. She missed constantly teasing and fighting with her friend.

"Sorry, you know I can't help myself," Zya winked.

"What's with the bags?" Eva asked, referring to the large bags that dangled from Zya's arms.

"Our dresses. I was just about to deliver yours."

"Dresses?"

"Yeah. It's Zena's birthday, remember?" Zya replied, causing Eva to cringe. "I completely forgot. I didn't get her a gift!"

"Don't worry about that," Zya assured and handed her the dress.

"At what time is the event starting?" Eva said as she examined the bag. She could tell the dress was a black, perhaps grey. 

"At 6. Don't worry, it won't be anything too serious. Just a small gathering."

"How many people will be there?" Eva asked, now nervous. She was sure that she was going to be the only human there. She would stick out.

"Not too many. Family, friends, some business connections. There will be about 6 alphas in total, so that will be an interesting sight to see. We can barely manage to contain 2 under this roof." She laughed, thinking of Zena and Adrian.

Eva fell in love with the dress Zya gave her. It was embellished, beautiful and elegant. She tried to make herself look worthy of wearing it and carefully applied her makeup and styled her hair.
