await only valid with async function urban dictionary api discord js

Any idea how i can fix this problem? I tried putting an async function in and I couldn’t get it to work. I’m not quite sure on how or where to add the async function, and how to get the two to work together. Any help is much appreciated, and this is for a discord javascript bot.

client.on('message', message => {
if (message.content.startsWith(`${PREFIX}urban`)) {
  if (!args.length) {
    return'You need to supply a search term!');

    const query = querystring.stringify({ term: args.join(' ') });
  const { list } = await fetch(`${query}`).then(response => response.json());
  if (!list.length) {
    return`No results found for **${args.join(' ')}**.`);

  const [answer] = list;

  const embed = new Discord.MessageEmbed()
      { name: 'Definition', value: trim(answer.definition, 1024) },
      { name: 'Example', value: trim(answer.example, 1024) },
      { name: 'Rating', value: `${answer.thumbs_up} thumbs up. ${answer.thumbs_down} thumbs down.` },
