"You didn't!" Amber Wilson was shocked. In disbelief, she stared at her two best friends.</span>
Trish nodded. "I did!"
Jessica laughed with Trish. "It wasn't easy either. The auction has been sold out for months."
"I'm not going!" Amber argued. They really expected her to go to an auction, bid on a stranger and have sex with him? Her best friends should know her better than that.
"You're going," Trish told her sternly. Then Amber watched with horror as Trish took the tickets from her purse.
Amber tried a different angle. "You can't afford those!" She was not going.
"Actually I didn't. They were…a gift. And you two are my dates."
Jessica stirred her coffee. "We don't need dates. We buy them there." She giggled.
Taking a drink of her coffee, Amber tried to come up with another excuse. "I can't afford the men there."
Her two friends exchanged amused smiles. "It's for charity. A very good charity. And we all know you're loaded anyway."
Amber sighed, knowing no excuse would be good enough. "I'd be so embarrassed."
Reaching out a hand, Jessica patted her arm. "We'll be there for support. I'm sorry we had to do it this way but you need to get out there again."
"It's been three years, honey," Trish added.
"I know how long it's been," she snapped, not wanting to dwell too much on why it had been three years. "And it's not that I'm not ready, I just haven't met anyone I find…interesting."
"Maybe Friday night you will," Trish pointed out gently.
