Terra made her way through the crowded place, full of glamorous people who drank whiskey and talked a little bit too loud, to her friend and nonchalantly rested her elbow on their shoulder. “Okay, who did you bribe to get us into this party? I’m just dying to find out”, she grinned.
Sandy over heard the girl and walked over “My mother’s holding this function, I suggested we let some art students in to network. My son says you’re pretty talented. Oh I’m sorry I’m Sandy Wilkes.”
"OH my GOODNESS! I want one now! Look how cuuuute! Charlotte look! Ben can we?"
((This girl is my best friend and is amazing please go play with her perfect character))
Sandy now had both hands on her arms, one moving back and forth rhythmically to soothe her. “Alright. Okay. Just breath okay? In through your mouth and out through your nose. Slowly, just focus on breathing okay?”
Lena pulled away ever so slightly, hating having to need his help though she did as told. It was hard to focus on just her breathing, she discovered. Her mind was reeling and she couldn’t focus.
Sandy was patient and stayed by her watching her with concern. He had questions but didn’t want to pester her or overwhelm her so he just sat near her. His hands dropped and he placed one of them on her back and ran it slowly up and down. “Breathe.” he repeated. “It’s alright.”
