Leone didn't notice them leave, still feeling a bit concerned for Ted after Sophie's departure. Only when Sally brushed against her as she left the circle did she notice that they were missing. Underneath the chandelier the world had stopped turning for one couple. Kai and Sasha were holding each other close.

She looked at her feet and twisted the ends of her shawl between her fingers. Sally she could have handled, that was just a fling. Kai had had many of those over the past few months, nothing to worry about. Sasha was an entirely different matter. Leone couldn't hold up a candle to her.

She tugged on Ted's sleeve and leant in to whisper in his ear. "I'm going to call it a night, sport. See you on the train yeah?" she turned and left the ball room, feeling just a little bit heart broken.

            Sally had kicked her shoes off to rest her aching feet. Now that Kai was off with Sasha, and Aaron clearly hadn't looked twice there was really very little point in keeping up the appearance. They... more

              Aaron grinned. Despite appearances it was it some ways reassuring to know that you could rely on the dirty girl to be sarcastic and snide. "Such aggressive manners for such a pretty little thing,"... more

                She let out a short laugh and shook her head at him in disbelief. Her drink was empty and she could so easily just get up and go fetch herself enough, severing all need for conversation with him. But ... more

                      Wrong thing to say. She couldn't have made a more ill considered remark if she had tried really. Ever since his birthday Aaron's moods had been unpredictable and often violent. He had actually felt... more
