masked ball is being held by a mysterious benefactor who now resides
within the castle. Everyone within the lands of NeoLondon has been
invited to attend this most audacious event! Who will have the nerve to
TheFireofLife Resident pulls on his white gloves, and claims a seat on
the ostentatious throne. Beside it, a chair of less pomp had been placed
for visitors to come speak to the – seemingly normal, if eccentric,
lord of the castle. He grinned behind his two-toned mask and reached a
hand out to the woman in red, beckoning her near. “Come.. The guests
will soon be arriving..”
Madame Red (Trinity) cast a grin to him
as she reached up and readjusted the veil she wore. The dark fabric
would cover her monstrous grin as she moved to stand by the chair. "This
shall be an interesting night, M'lord."
Lord Coat (TheFireofLife)
chuckled deeply, that low voice bellowing. He took her hand in his, and
pulled it to his mouth, tracing the sculpted lips over it as if to kiss
her. “Be wary, love. I fear there may be those who suspect me to be up
to some suspicious act, and may attempt to interfere.” There was as much
innocence as there was contempt in his voice.
Red (Trinity) giggled, a dark sound coming from the veiled woman. "No
harm shall come that is undue, a little extra paperwork never hurt no
one." She placed an affectionate hand on his shoulder as she turned her
gaze to the door, expectantly.
Lord Coat (TheFireofLife) crossed
one leg over the other, and leaned into the cushion of the chair
casually, like someone at ease. It was a change from the odd pantomime
performance he had given the night before – waltzing about town, doing
silly tricks and motions to attract the townspeople to the event. He was
rather pleased with himself for the show. He too watched the door.
Elodie Blackrose (ameliablackrose) stood outside the door to the
castle, golden eyes locked onto the swirling orbs that seemed dazed by
the lantern light. With some hesitance, the vampiress reached for the
door, a strange scent distracting her, and warding her away. Or, perhaps
it was her imagination. After all, the last time she had visited this
castle, she did not leave unmarred. With a faint toss of her indigo
locks, she paused thoughtfully. She could afford to be ‘fashionably
late’ as the invitation granted allowable.
Nielson simply.. appears in the corner, as if you were looking and your
eyes slid right by him. He stands silently, obviously on guard,
watching the goings on.
MEANWHILE, ABOVE THE BARN
Asil Karu has been fussing with the kitchen fae all day and when she
comes to it, can’t decide what to wear. In the end, she decides best to
keep her costume one that she can easily move in. She straps a blade to
her thigh …hoping to hide it under the skirting.
BACK AT THE CASTLE
Madame Red (Trinity) glanced around the room as she waited. Her
becoming slightly nervous as she stood. She spoke softly. "Dear, do you
not fear a surge of violence when these ...cattle become frightened?"
Her eyes trailed the room, looking for places of strategy.
walked up towards the castle, having argued with herself all night
about going. Last time she was there things had shot at her and a group
of people, one of those people called her a name. Why did people act so
familiar towards her, she shook her head before glancing up. She paused
as she saw another person, sticking close to the left side to move
around her. She hummed softly as she walked to the door, tapping softly
on the wood. Kit had fussed with what to wear and finally managed to
find a suitable dress.
Lord Coat (TheFireofLife) lifts his head
slowly, sensing others near as he looks to the door, a faint grunt of
impatience being uttered beneath the thick plaster of the mask. He then
drifts his eyes towards the corner, having sworn he’d seen something.
But, his lover distracted him before his eyes could catch sight of the
watching ghoul. “I fear nothing but the loss of you, my dear. However..
if it appears you are unsafe.. there is the dungeon, as well as a hidden
room in the top of this building to escape to. A few hiding places,
Ohmai (myomy) fluffs her petticoats and smooths her dress over them.
She looks in the mirror one last time. Is perhaps the costume too
ornate, she asks herself, yet again? Should she change, yet again?
"Humph," she says aloud, imitating her father when invited to dine with
royalty. "Whether it be in Paris or in Borneo, it is what's inside that
people want to meet. Not what's outside," he would say to her. With a
final toss of her feathered head, Myomy walks out the door.
BACK AT THE CASTLE
Elodie Blackrose (ameliablackrose) looked up to the somewhat – but not
entirely – familiar woman, golden eyes observing her motion and form in
silence. Her deep ruby stained lips curled into a polite smile as she
nodded a greeting to the other. “I suspect we may be the first to
arrive, mon cher.” The woman’s accent was sweet as she slowly paced
towards the other, the folds of her gown barely hiding the glide of her
Angelus Nielson watches Myo leave, the mask turning with almost mechanical perversion, as if on a swivel.
BACK AT THE BARN
Asil Karu: The blade pokes at her and she decides perhaps something
that ties to the costume would be better. She pulls the ancient fans
from their hiding place at the bottom of the trunk. The iridium gleams
against the ruby stones and she smiles to herself as she straps them on,
one to each thigh. “Let’s just hope they remain jewelry.”
BACK AT THE CASTLE
Madame Red (Trinity) giggled as she bent some at the waist, her turning
to look to his eyes, her bright emerald toned gaze comforting as she
spoke. "I have long been on the other side of death, bodily wounds heal.
I do not wish to see you harmed, but I do not wish for a bunch of
filthy...serfs dirtying your new abode."
ON THE STREET
Kit looked back at the woman and nods, resisting the urge to play with
her necklace. " I think so as well, should we just go in?" she asked her
softly. She didn't know if that was proper for a party or not. "
Perhaps it would be alright instead of waiting out here" she muttered
the last part and knocked louder.
BACK AT THE CASTLE
Lord Coat (TheFireofLife) chuckles deeply at his lover, and strokes the
back of her hand with his fingertips. “I believe we have very little to
fear from this bunch.. They barely stood against me when I was limited
to a foreign form..” He took one final look at his love, before
bellowing out in that deep voice. “COME IN!~”
ON THE STREET
Asil Karu climbs down from the loft and out of the barn, heading toward the castle.
BACK AT THE CASTLE
Elodie Blackrose (ameliablackrose) looked to the woman, and slowly
shook her head. “Where I am from, party informality are considered so
posh, there is hardly any observable decorum.” A faint sigh escaped
Amelia’s lips, as she felt almost nostalgic for her younger days of wild
Parisian galas. When she caught the sound of a voice, she gently pushed
one of the double doors open, and glided into the ballroom.
Red (Trinity) grinned beneath her veil as her gaze flicked to the door.
Her form erected, straightening. Madame Red held herself with a grace
usually reserved for those of royal birth, her hand remained on her
loves shoulder. She said nothing as she merely observed.
Karu approaches the castle and sees a small woman in a grand black and
red dress. “Good evening, Lady.” Asil won’t guess at her identity,
keeping to the spirit of a mask’d ball. “Ready to meet Load Coat?”
Myomy Ohmai (myomy): "Ready is a relative term in this case, but I will say yes. And you? Ready?
Greer (xiuhcohtl.balazic) stood in one of the side rooms, listening to
the main room of the castle fill with music. Soon, she would be able to
make her move when the guests arrived.
IN THE GUEST ROOM OF THE TAVERN
Mia Pleides slipped on her mask and took one more look in the dresser
mirror. This costume will have to do though it is more elaborate than
she was accustomed to wearing. Somehow it seemed that there were some
additional things in her trunk as she unpacked at the Tavern today.
"Hmmmm",she mused, Perhaps these things were already in the trunk before
I packed. Well they are lovely and suitable for this event." Mia took
the derringer from it's holster and put it in her small evening bag.
"Just in case", she thought.. The invitation to this ball was too
intriguing to ignore though it had been delivered in a most strange and
perhaps even sinister method. How could the personalized invitation
have been waiting for her at the Tarot table when she had told no one
but Myomy and Asil that she was moving here today? It was most unusual
and the timing uncanny.. Mia looked at the watch on the dresser . "Oh!
I don't want to be more than fashionably late. I will have to hurry
now." She descended the stairs of the Tavern, enjoying the swish of
silk as her skirt swayed . Stopped at the bar and helped herself to a
tiny bit of Asil's fine brandy, leaving the appropriate coins on the
bar. " a wee stiffener", she thought, "just to take the edge off my
nerves". As Mia headed toward the castle, the evening air felt cool
BACK AT THE CASTLE
Karu: "I am always ready for an adventure!" Asil's eyes sparkle above
the veiling. "Shall we enter?" She starts up the stairs.
(kitiarafox) was about to head in when another voice greeted her. She
turned towards the voice and bows her head in greeting. " I suppose so,
as ready as I will ever be. Shall we?" she asked beore opening the door
and heading in.
Myomy Ohmai (myomy): I'll follow you.
Coat (TheFireofLife) muttered lowly to his female companion. “It’s show
time, lover.” His hand squeezed hers for a long moment as he rose to
greet his guests. “Good evening… good evening.. Welcome citizens of
NeoLondon.. I have been in such great need of meeting you all!” His deep
voice, though intimidating, did seem cheery.
Karu watches the gate open as they approach, next the heavy oaken
doors. The main floor has been transformed! There are banners
everywhere, ruby-colored lights and sitting in a seat that looks almost
like a throne, sits the mask’d gentlemen from yesterday.
Ohmai (myomy): Walking through the doors, Myomy took in the rich
tapestries, flickering lanterns, and graceful music. Such a far cry
from the dingy, undressed stones of a few days before.
Red (Trinity) stepped forward, keeping to his side though not being so
cross as to touch as she performed a partial curtsy to the guests. "I
would like to extend my humble welcome as well to all of you. I would
like to extend a humble thanks for accepting the invitations of his
lordship." She gestured to the male beside her. Her eyes swept over
those gathered. "Lord Coat and I wish upon you a joyful evening, we
look forward to meeting you all."
Angelus Nielson squiggles his
head in precise increments, taking in everything going on in a
clock-like manner. Each pass seems to tick off the seconds as that
porcelain face watches the goings on.
Amelia Elodie Blackrose
(ameliablackrose) moved into the room, a hand straightening a crumpled
section of fabric on her gown self-consciously. Despite her mask, the
noblewoman had no doubt her indigo hair would reveal who she was to
those who were familiar with her. But, she became completely taken
aback, as her eyes wondered around the room. The warm glow of the
lights, and obviously careful cleaning, made this place appear far more
welcoming. And the terrible screech of the monsters beneath the castle?
IN THE RED MANSION
Jhaesoph Foxdale rummaged through his wardrobe, looking for that rarely
worn tuxedo. Surely that would do for the masquerade. He changed into
it, sliding his pistol into his vest pocket and leaving the holster
behind. No sense causing alarm, but no sense going unprepared, either.
He noticed how late he was, and hurried out the door.
BACK AT THE CASTLE
Myomy Ohmai (myomy) curtsies graciously, "Good evening."
(kitiarafox) adjusted the mask just for the sake of fidgeting with
something as her blue eyes looked around the room. it looked less scary
and more... lived in now. She hoped whatever had been shooting at people
was gone now. Her eyes flickered back to the hosts, listening to their
greeting before doing a clumsy curtsy back. Her eyes drifted around the
room other guests, all the masked faces. " Good evening" she said in her
Mia Pleides entered the gate of the castle and passed
through the huge wooden door, the same door she had followed the other
through the other night, when the screams filled the edifice. Lovely
music and the sounds of conversation drew her up the staircase. She
entered the room, looking to see if any one's identity was as yet
Lord Coat (TheFireofLife) gestured with his hands to the
inside of the castle. “Please, please, do come in! There are delightful
deserts and drinks for all to indulge on, and music to dance to!
Welcome to my home!” He continued to sound cheery as he beckoned
everyone to come nearer. He was dressed as an admiral of sorts, complete
with powdered wig and sword.
Greer (xiuhcohtl.balazic) moves to the open stone doorway and peers
just slightly around the corner. She looked at the group and smiled,
knowing soon she'd be able to blend in.
Karu: Turning toward Kit, “Good evening!” Asil does not recognize the
woman. She smiles at the others and makes her way toward the male,
giving a low curtsey, “Lord Coat. Thank you for the invitation to your
new home. Have you taken up Lord Bowley’s station as the new Royal
Watcher or are you just visiting?” She would ask this in the gentlest
tones, not wanting to offend if he was indeed the new governor of the
Myomy Ohmai (myomy) follows Asil, pausing to hear what answer the Lord will give before she introduces herself.
Elodie Blackrose (ameliablackrose) looks around to the other women, and
bows her head politely. The vampiress seemed distracted by the goings
on. Something stirred in her, telling her she should have come behind a
different sort of mask this evening..
Kit (kitiarafox) lowered her
gaze as she stepped closer to the center of the room. She stayed quiet
as she observed the room, eying everyone's attire for the ball. She went
over her greeting in her mind. trying to settle the nervousness.
Angelus Nielson feels his gaze linger on Kit the porcelain somehow radiating interest despite being simply still.
Foxdale entered the main hall, surprised to see how much livelier the
place had gotten. As he looked around, he noticed that few had worn full
masks. At least he'd gotten that right. He wondered how late he really
Clyde du Plotte (clyde.gemini) sighed heavily as he walked
through the courtyard of this *Lord Coat*. He didn't know what to expect
but thought he needed to come meet this new resident if for nothing
else a political move. He seemed connected somehow. He thought as he
looked around, but that could be as much a facade as the mask he wore.
"Well" he mumbled to himself, "Let's get this charade over with." He
knocked on the wooden door to enter the castle
(Trinity) conducted herself as though she was mistress of the castle,
with poise and understated grace. Her eyes communicated warmth even
though it was impossible to tell if she smiled. Her hands were clasped
before her stomach as she listened to the mandatory introductions. Her
preparing to introduce herself if asked, her getting the facts straight
in her head and schooling her expressions.
du Plotte (clyde.gemini) entered the hall and scanned the room. He saw
some that might be familiar and smiled despite himself, "An impressive
gathering" he thought, "Perfect start to a captive audience" Clyde tried
to shake his paranoia unsuccessfully and stepped further into the room.
Angelus Nielson swivels his head to look at Clyde and nods as if his entrance was totally expected.
Coat (TheFireofLife) could have hissed with delight as he looked to all
the guests, stepping forward for just a moment. He paused and leaned
against his lover, the woman in red, as if he was not exactly in a well
enough state to dance. “I’m merely passing through, though, I suspect I
will be visiting often. I much like it here.” He grinned behind his
mask, and moved back to his seat, gesturing towards the empty seat
Nielson moves through the room though his method of movement is weird.
It seems that he's in one place and if you look down or away he has
moved. but he never seems to be in motion. He smiles to Clyde, though
how a porcelain mask can smile is questionable.. and he lifts a single
finger to the white lips.
Karu smiles to him, under her mask. She marks his gesture for someone
to sit, though she is not sure if he means her or the haughty woman
wearing red. Asil has heard her voice earlier, though she had not marked
what was said. “I have never seen the castle look so welcoming, even
the guardians are silent …and that’s rare and welcome. Thank you again
for the invitation.” She curtseys again and moves back from him, to
allow others to make their greetings.
Myomy Ohmai (myomy):
Stepping forward to stand where Asil stood, Myomy speaks to Lord Coats
and the one she presumes is his Lady. "Pleasure to meet you. I am Myomy.
What spectacular work you have done to turn this dreary place into a
fancy ballroom. Such exquisite taste you both must have.” She curtsies
graciously, "Good evening."
Clyde du Plotte (clyde.gemini) watched
the man come towards him," Maybe this was the host here to met his
guest? Clyde watched the man put a finger to his masked lips and
wondered the cause of such a gesture. He remain quiet and wary.
Nielson smiles and goes back to watching the goings on, only close to
Clyde. His cane tapes gently on the ground and he seems.. contented,
eager, but slightly on edge as if he was waiting for someone or
something to arrive.
Elodie Blackrose (ameliablackrose) paced in the apparent line that had
started to form to the strange masked lord, and her arms rested at her
sides, roses wrapped about her wrists rustling against the fabric. She
turned to glance between the figured present – there were familiar
scents, mostly, but one especially caught her interests.
du Plotte (clyde.gemini) silently watched the caned man. He thought it
strange that he was singled out by the man only to be stood next too.
Angelus Nielson: *tips his hat and then holds his hand
just above his ascot. He shakes is head and then shrugs slight. The mask
seems to send out sheepishness... like he would say more if he could.
(kitiarafox) watched the others greeting the hosts, she supposed she
should do so as well. But what do I say she wondered as she did her best
lady like walk towards the throne like chairs. " Good evening, thank
you for opening your lovely home. I must agree you have done wonders to
make it so warm and cheerful" she said softly, doing another slightly
clumsy curtsy before backing up a bit.
Clyde du Plotte
(clyde.gemini) returned his hand and shook looking into the center of
the room trying to figure where this *Lord Coat* was....
(faerewolf) looks around at all the people assembled. She hasn't seen
them in a while, and enjoys trying to figure out the disguises. It is a
lovely ballroom. She turns her gaze to the host. He is not familiar to
her, and yet... she suddenly feels a shiver run down her spine. Perhaps
she should look for the food. As she continues to scan the room, she
wonders how it is she came to be invited to this event and is thinks on
how little she really knows of the ways of these people. Is there
something she ought to be doing?
Jhaesoph Foxdale stands quietly,
listening to the energies swirling about the place. They were different
than before. Curious, he'd have to keep on guard.
Red (Trinity) looked with worry to her love, her eyes wide slightly as
she viewed her with question. She was not positive of whether he was
acting or not. She quickly joined him, her perching in the chair beside
him. Her hand resting on the chair besides hers. Her looking to him on
occasion from the corner of her eyes. However, her warm and welcoming
gaze didn't falter. She called out. "I encourage you all to sample the
foods and drinks set out, superbly prepared." She nodded her head some.
du Plotte (clyde.gemini) sighed heavily stifling a yawn. He looked
around looking for a waiter to hit him up with some hooch!
Coat (TheFireofLife) merely inclined his head to each who introduced
themselves or greeted the lord, resting comfortably in the large chair
as he watched the crowd. So few men in this town, or none who were
interested in balls? “Yes, please do!” Eyes watched the two strange men
interact for a long moment, then he turned his attention back to the
Angelus Nielson points with his cane to where the alcohol
is set out. he nods his head and the mask seems to grin. He moves in his
spectral way to where the table is and takes a glass.. though the
astute might notice it just seems to disappear over the course of the
next few minutes as opposed to being actively drunk.
Greer (xiuhcohtl.balazic) scurried out from a side room to move behind
the stairwell and to the side where the drinks and treats were laid out.
She scooped up a tray and moved towards the group. The female was
dressed as a maid, deep hair messily wrapped into two buns atop her
head, a mask covering part of her face. She moved towards the group, not
getting too close to the lord.
Asil Karu scans the room and sees
the flickering modes moving in circles, she holds her hand up toward one
and as it flies close to her outstretched fingers she feels heat coming
from it. “A fire spirit?” she whispers as her hand comes safely back
Myomy Ohmai (myomy): Myomy studies the room and costumed
guests, choosing in her head the words that might go in the newspaper.
Most were recognizable by hair or stance or voice. The bright-haired one
in the harlequin lozenges must be Kit, although, as she saw the other
night, there was something amiss in her posture.
Elodie Blackrose (ameliablackrose) studied the men for a long moment,
wondering just whom they might be. She couldn’t detect the unwelcoming
scent of the mutt-blood she’d met before, so clearly he must not be
present. She did, however, recognize a scent in the dark haired maiden.
With a slight turn, she moved to the lord, and offered just the faintest
of nods. In theory, the vampiress was a higher rank than the man.
“What, monsieur, may I ask are you lord of? Just ‘zis castle or.. are
you titled for other reasons?”
(kitiarafox) straightened as she brushed a strand of her light hair
behind her ear and backed away. She sought out the refreshments and got
herself a drink. She flickered her gaze around the room again and
smiled, this wasn't so bad. Kit stretched her arm back to scratch her
shoulder blades, the area had been bothering her again. She kept getting
flashes in her mind of something red. " Nice party" she said softly,
trying to start a conversation.
(faerewolf) wonders why everyone seems so nervous and why no one is
dancing. She finally spies the food and moves towards it, still
searching for a familiar face - though she supposes that is to be
expected. Reaching the table, she observes the lights with the
fireflies, "absolutely charming," she mutters and she pauses to admire
them further while drinking from her goblet. She chokes a bit as she
overhears the Blackrose woman seem to challenge the host.
Red (Trinity) smiled at the woman in the lovely skirt approached. She
perked at the hint of accent. She spoke clearly, her chin raised as she
spoke. "Ah, a frenchwoman. Noblesse, je suppose? Je peux dire par la
façon dont vous vous tenez, il est dans votre chemin même de la parole.
Il a été aussi très longtemps que je n'ai visité la France. Peut-être
que vous voulez bien me dire comment il est?" The lady in red offered a comforting smile, even though the smile was hidden.
Clyde du Plotte (clyde.gemini) looked over to the gentleman and nodded. as he walked towards the center of the room.
Nielson turns his gaze back to the assembled crowd. He reaches into his
pocket, pulls out a watch and checks the time. He winds the watch and
then puts it back into a pocket A nod and sme of the wine from his glass
Lord Coat (TheFireofLife) started to speak, but
noticed his partner take charge and grinned with pride beneath the
plaster mask. He turned his attention on the maid with the tray. Yes, he
had hired help, but.. that was not whom he had hired. The lord shifted
almost uncomfortably, and reached over to take Madam Red’s hand.
Karu watches one of the male figures walk toward Lord Coat and what she
images is his consort, given the lady was not being introduced. From
the walk, she suspects it’s the Bishop. She listens to the woman speak
in a language she doesn’t know and shrugs, surprised she doesn’t use the
common tongue. Spying the serving wench, she crosses to her to see what
is being offered.
Persephone (faerewolf) feels a conflict coming and thinks she will excuse herself to look around for a while.
Greer (xiuhcohtl.balazic) stood at attention to the guests, holding her
tray of goods upright despite how heavy it appeared to be. Her long
legs peeked out from beneath the skirt, a hint of something sharp and
dangerous lingering there – to any who would dare to look.
Ohmai (myomy): And there! Oh look! It was the Bishop! No one could
mistake his mannerisms, half haughty boredom and half frenetic. Myomy
was surprised to realize she was glad to to know he survived the last
Amelia Elodie Blackrose (ameliablackrose) spoke in her native tongue to the woman, nodding her head and offering a smile. “Oui,
que je suis. Tellement bon d'être remarqué. Paris est bien, même si
j'ai été absent un certain temps. J'espère revenir bientôt, cependant.
Un plaisir de vous rencontrer.” She turned away from the hosts, her
question unanswered, as she turned to the male who must surely be the
Bishop. With the sweetest of smiles, she approaches him. “I do hope you
will save a dance for me, Monsieur.”
Clyde du Plotte
(clyde.gemini) turned the the french woman recognizing her voice," Is
that why we are here fair lady? Dancing? I so thought that it would be
more *eventful* . He smiled," But a dance might be welcome for sure"
(kitiarafox) blinked as the two women spoke in a language she dint
understand. Still the words sounded elegant and pretty to the ear. Kit
took a sip of the drink as she stood back, not very good at parties. She
took a deep breath before approaching a woman near by. Like her own
dress the woman was dressed in black and red, though her red was lighter
in shade than Kits. " h-ello, pretty place hu?" she muttered softly.
Foxdale plucks some tea from the tray the maid is carrying. "Thank you,
I could use a hot drink." Amelia's words might prove to be incendiary,
best to have something on hand to use as a distraction if need be. He
then looked at the food table, wondering what was over there. His
curiosity got the best of him, deciding to get something from it.
Red (Trinity) nodded her head, her smile however faded as she felt her
gloved hand be gripped. Confusion filled her gaze for a moment before
slowly her head turned to the maid. This woman was vastly unfamiliar, so
she called out as sweetly as possible. "You there, the maid with the
lovely treats, do bring to me if you so please." Her green eyes focused
on the maid.
Coat (TheFireofLife) was content to let his lover handle the maid
issue, as he turned his eyes on the male before him, stomach churning at
the obvious infatuation the French woman had for him. His deep voice
bellowed across the room once more as he waved the man nearer. “And you,
good sir, whom might you be?”
Asil Karu takes a small cake from
the tray, trying to catch the gaze of the one holding it. If her eyes
haven‘t mistaken it, she is concealing weapons as well. “Thank you,
Miss. These look lovely.” She bites into the small cake, careful to hold
it under her veil. She hears the red woman speak in the common tongue,
calling the maid to her and she frowns a little beneath the mask.
Greer (xiuhcohtl.balazic) swallowed slightly, and bowed her head to
those who had taken from the tray. She then moves to the woman in red,
knowing all to well who she was behind her mask - the scar over her eyes
gave her away. "Yes, mi'lady?" Her voice was sharp, a sweet, sweet
Myomy Ohmai (myomy): Myomy steps closer to the
bright-haired woman who addressed her and looks to see if anyone else is
close by before she whispers, "Kit? Is that you? Are you in hiding?"
Elodie Blackrose (ameliablackrose) crosses her arms over her chest,
nodding faintly. "Ah, Bishop, one thing I admire about you is how little
you change.." A dry humor was in her voice, as she moved past the male
to examine the red crystal-seeming lights.
Clyde du Plotte
(clyde.gemini) cocked a brow under his mask as he heard the inquiry from
the sitting man," I am but an appreciative guest to this fine affair.
It honors me to be invited." He watched Amelia walk away admiring her
dress from the back
(kitiarafox) turns to look behind her when the woman said that name
again, frowning as she didnt see any new guests. " Are... are you
calling me by that name?" she asked her. "hiding? you are in a mask to"
she said, puzzlement in her face and flashing in her big blue eyes. The
doll man had said that name to right after she came to the land.
Persephone (faerewolf) is happy to see everyone is still getting along
Jhaesoph Foxdale takes a pear from the table and moves away from it, to better hear the conversations.
Red (Trinity) offered a smile to the maid as she remained cordial and
kind. "Those are quite lovely shoes you're wearing." The woman remarked,
her studying the woman's face before her brow furrowed as she spoke.
"Your mask is impeccably made but I must inquire about your identity. I
cannot remember hiring you, but perhaps you were already hired. You may
whisper your name to me." She nodded her head after giving a comforting
squeeze to her loves hand.
Delita: appears from under the archway
next to the stairs in a puff of black mist. He steps out and glances
around the area, seeing who has still remained at the party so far.
