Since all of her belongings got burned down together with the car yesterday, she had brought nothing with her. They were originally planning to shop for clothes and other stuffs when they were in the mall last night, but they saved it for another time in order to make it to the birthday party.
"Well, not like I'm complaining with what I have right now. In fact, this is more comfortable for me even though it's a lot more modest compared to my fancy garments back at home," Cassidy mused out loud as she took out her outfit for today.
It's a plain yellow summer dress that flows all the way down to her t.h.i.g.hs. As it is one of the spare clothes that are meant for a guest in case one stays there unannounced, the size is a matter of hit or miss. Fortunately, she just fits right in with her toned body.

Not only three among these gentlemen appear dazzlingly good-looking so early in the morning, but the others follow the man who noticed her and say their greetings as well.
