Of course, it wasn’t just the New Year that the hybrid slayer wanted to celebrate that night, knowing that this time of year just happened to be when her partner’s birthday was too. Elara’s was on the horizon too although it hadn’t been a time of year that she’d always enjoyed. The holiday season had once been a horrible time for her, having to spend it with her maniacal parents and the rest of her family of nutters. It had been the same old song and dance every year, with her being paraded around like a puppet. She was thoroughly glad that she was now free of such experiences and the teenager wasted no time in pushing those unpleasant memories out of her mind.
Elara always felt a little self conscious when it came to such events and considering her choice of outfit for the evening, she was feeling it just a little more strongly. A beautiful white dress covered her form, along with a flowery tiara that sat perfectly on her head. It was the first time that she’d dared to wear such an elegant outfit, having been worried that it’d stir up the feelings of her past. That was the last thing she wanted tonight and although there was the occasional thought or two, she kept pushing them aside.
The most effective way of doing so though was just to turn her head to the left, where her eyes would fall upon her beautiful girlfriend, wearing a delightful yellow dress that went so well with her own. The dark haired teenager couldn’t help but smile as she watched her, pleased that Lehanna had found the confidence to wear such a dress in public. Elara hoped that it was a sign that she was overcoming her fears and as she gently leaned her head against her partner's shoulder, she’d utter, in a rather soft tone for her. “That dress looks simply heavenly on you, Lea, I can’t take my eyes off of you.”
