Jane stood on top of the staircase.
Cameras flashes below, applause reverberated in the ballroom, cheers and well wishes reached her ears… her blinding smile lit up the place. She waved her hand like she participated in a pageant. Her guests approved the display with louder praises and compliments.
She descended elegantly while the diamond tiara on her head glinted under the spotlights.
It was truly her moment to shine.
At the base of the stairs, she stopped at a small platform and grabbed the microphone. Her melodic voice flowed out of the speakers. "Thank you all for another wonderful year. To see your faces on this special day always touches my heart. I could only hope this party gives you as much joy as you had given me. So please…"
She paused and gestured to the other side of the room. "Give it up for one of the biggest bands in the world…"
Sssh. Patience. Next chapter will be Eve :)
Have a good day!
