The Ladies of the Ball
Wed Jan 6, 2010 23:39

Ted waited, hovering around the staircase with the other students who had the pleasure of taking a member of the B Hive court to the End of the Year Ball. They watched as one by one the women descended, met their match and moved gracefully to the Dining Hall. On occasion, he leaned on the staircase banister, attempting to look like his charming self.

Then she came down in the stairs, in purple and black and putting him beyond words. He didn't have to guess who it was. Her hair, her eyes, even that smile told him everything. He stood straighter and found himself moving towards her only to be caught off by the figure of Mattia Desai in a similar mask.

His attention was drawn back to the staircase, where one of his best friends was now making her way down. Her dress was like water, blue and silky and flowing and the mask she wore promised the lady beneath it was here for fun as much as for being noticed. He found himself impressed. If there hadn't been Sophie, he would have looked at Leone a little differently. She certainly was giving him reason. He moved towards her, readjusted his mask and presented himself before her, offering his arm.

"Good evening.You look like someone who could use an escort. If you'll allow me...?"
