The gardens had been decorated masterfully. The suspended lights gave the event a luxurious feel without hindering the beautiful natural feel of the gardens. Instead of using cocktail tables, rustic wooden barrels had been dispersed through the grounds. At the center of the gardens, a white tent stood, under it, a band was playing a lively rhythm. The crowd was dispersed. Some stood around barrels, others were on the dancefloor...
It was one of her wealthy clients who had invited her, apparently, news of her divorce had traveled quickly meaning that people invited her to all sorts of event thinking that she needed her spirits lifted. The truth was she had never been lighter. Julien was a great man, a good father, but their relationship had come to an end. With the boys being away at Hogwarts they had come to realize that they did not have much in common anymore. It was Emerson who had talked about the divorce, Julien had been resistant, she didn't think he would ever fully come around to accepting it, but for Emerson, there was no turning back. She was ready to move on.
It is when she had found out that Emily was organizing the event that she had accepted the invitation. Emerson wasn't quite why that was, but as soon as the name had been mentioned she had been surprised to hear herself accept the man's offer. It was not him however that she was looking for, Emerson took a champagne flute from one of the levitating trays as she walked through the crowd looking for a particular blonde.
She smiled when she witnessed Emily frowning while looking at something in the distance. "Are you trying to think of the spell that would make those clouds disappear?" Emerson joked when she finally reached Emily.
