I reapplied my Chanel lipstick in the limo. I was a little late, but I had had a spa appointment before, and I’m not the kind of girl to seem over eager. My phone rang just then and I smiled when I saw daddy’s face.
“Princess! How are you?” he asked me, since I have my own apartment and he works all the time I don’t see Daddy that much.
“Wonderful Daddy, how was your proposal?” we might not see each other all that much, but we talk a lot.
“It went really well. Looks like another multi million dollar deal is in the works. Are you on your way to meet Chloe?”
“I’m pulling up as we speak. Sounds like you’re on fire this year! We should have dinner to celebrate.” I said smiling. I might not approve of my dad’s taste in women, but I loved him to death.
“Sounds like a plan. Make sure to write Chloe or Clarice a nice big check from me won’t you?” he asked. I smiled. Just like daddy.
“I’ll remember. Love you.”
“Love you too princess. Have a good time.” I hung up the phone and stepped out of the limo to flashes and flashes of paps. I smiled and positioned myself in the perfect picture pose that I was taught almost as soon as I could walk. One hand on the hip left foot slightly in front of the other head slightly tilted, big smile, flirty eyes.
“Ayala! Are you back in the states for good?” I heard one reporter ask. I laughed.
“Well as long as I’m at l’ecole, but you know as well as anyone that I don’t like staying in the same place for too long.” I said with a laugh.
"Is it true you're following in fellow heiress Paris Hilton's footsteps and going into acting?" I laughed out loud at that one.
"I'm not sure if me and Paris are on the same wave length, but I guess anything could happen...." Another thing I was told...always leave them guessing.
After answering a few more questions I made my into the club. I was used to the attention and if it meant doing well at L’ecole then I would soak it all up. I looked around for familiar faces. Nat was on the other side of the room, rocking Herve Leger. She was sipping a cocktail and sitting next to a much less orange Sandra. I noticed Chloe talking to Raleigh. I wasn’t sure what to think about Raleigh. She was super sweet to me, but also seemed a little on the sketchy side. On the other hand, I also didn’t want to be on her bad side, so I made up my mind and walked up to both of them. Air kissing both of them as we met.
“You are looking wonderful” Raleigh said eyeing my dress. Just then I heard a voice come up behind me
“She should. She’s wearing my design.” Vivienne had arrived looking stunning in one of her own designs as usual.
“I have them all of course.” I said with a smile giving Viv a quick hug.
“I’m sorry I couldn’t go out with you yesterday. I had an interview.” I shrugged it off.
“You didn’t really miss anything but Ashton freaking out.” I had forgotten who I was with. Chloe and Raleigh’s eyes both widened in interest.
“Oh really? Do tell…” I rolled my eyes and figured that even if I dished a little Ashton wouldn’t hate me, after all, she wanted me to befriend Raleigh, and I was still on the fence over which one to call my ally.
“Oh you know, whine…bit(ch, plot.” I said with a gleam in my eye. I told them the gist of what she had said (leaving out the part of befriending her.)
“Well, well, She sure is a ballsy girl…” Chloe said, tossing back her gorgeous wavy blonde hair.
“I’m going to get a drink.” Viv said. “Come with me?” She linked arms and we headed to the bar.
“Mojito please.” I said to the bartender.
“So I hear you’re crushing on a certain Australian playboy…” Viv said with a gossiping look in her eye. I sighed.
“God you can’t even turn around without someone knowing about it!” I said laughing.
“That’s just the fun! So tell me!” I shrugged.
“He’s hot, I’m single…it could happen.” I said sipping my drink. Viv laughed.
“Aya! Viv. You two bit(ches havn’t even said hello to me yet.” Nat said as she took a sip of her drink. We laughed and started talking about how great this springs fashion week had been before getting a little quiet.
“And the queen herself arrives.” I heard someone say behind me. I turned around to see Ashton getting out of her limo outside the door. This should be interesting….
