Noah was shocked when he arrived at James' party house, it was huge and looked brand new but also seemed like no one lived in it. Lily was also amazed but Tim wasn't impressed.
James introduced himself and was very charismatic, wowing Lily and Noah but not Tim.
Noah and Tim met people from the tech world and heard interesting things about James' past. Tim believed the negative things but Noah felt skeptical.
Lily spent her time with James. They went to high school together but Lily got into Stanford while James' family couldn't afford college.
Lily realized she should have married James instead, having a better time with him in one night that in all of her marriage with Tim.
After the party ended Noah and Tim met up with Lily who said she lost track of time and couldn't find them. She told them she ran into James who invited the three of them to dinner in the city next week.
