Zekkyou, Toby and Martyn were standing in front of the, castle waiting for Kaeyi. The three had the same identical black suits, but each other had something to classify each other with flowers, besides the masks on their faces. Toby had a daisy (Daisies mean Innocence, Loyal Beauty), Martyn had a magnolia (Magnolias mean Nobility, Perseverance, and Love for Nature), and Zekkyou had white violets pinned on the outside of his jacket. (White Violets mean “Let’s take a chance”). Zekkyou and Martyn had to take their head bands off so Zekkif wouldn’t easily spot them in the crowd. The three already had their masks on, Zekkyou had a red, bird looking one, Toby and Martyn both had an identical ones, except Martyn’s was a really dark green, and Toby’s was a sky blue.
“Where’s Kaeyi?” Zekkyou questioned.
“Yea Martyn, where’s your girlfriend?” Toby teased.
“She isn’t my girlfriend!” Martyn replied.
At that moment Kaeyi raced her way towards the.
“Sorry it took so long, it’s a girl thing.” she laughed.
She was wearing a long black and white formal dress, with a mask that looked like a panda.
“Wow,” Martyn gasped, “you look… beautiful.”
“Thank you,” she giggled.
“Bet you five pounds they’ll dance with each other.” Toby whispered to Zekkyou.
“You’re on,” he replied back.
As they walked, they saw a man asking for names and announcing them to the crowd of people.
“Well, s**t” Zekkyou mumbled.
“Guys, I have an idea!” Toby exclaimed, “Just follow my lead.”
He went over to the man who was announcing the names. He whispered something to him and the man gave him a weird look.
He turned to the crowd,” Prince Bunion of Bunionshire!”
Toby walked down proudly and waited for the rest of the group to hurry along.
“Well, I didn’t expect that.” Zekkyou said, “Might as well follow him,”
He walked over to the man and did exactly what Toby did.
“Sir Valentine of Fluffyington,” the man shortly announced.
“Come on,” Kaeyi whispered to Martyn.
She walked up to the man and Martyn followed right behind her. She whispered something into his hair.
“Mister and Lady Shi no Barado!” the man yelled amongst the crowd.
Kaeyi interlaced Martyn’s fingers with hers and they made their way down to Toby and Zekkyou. Martyn, unlaced his fingers, went over to Toby and smacked him in the head.
“You noob,” he said.
“Hey! You have to admit, it was funny!” Toby replied rubbing his head.
Then all of a sudden a woman with brown hair in a rose pink dress made her way towards Toby and holds his arm.
“Excuse me but do you know who you’re talking too! Have some respect for the prince! Come on you poor baby, I’ll get you away from these mean people.” she yelled.
The woman began to drag Toby away from him and the last thing they heard from Toby was “Help me!”
“Well, it looks like we’re down a man,” Zekkyou smirked.
“Okay, everyone spread out, Kaeyi and I’ll go check out the stage, Zekkyou; you go over and see if you can find anything suspicious.” Martyn announced.
“On it!” Zekkyou ran across the floor and Martyn and Kaeyi went closer to the stage.
There was a group of people that were playing classical music. A man with red hair and beard on the piano look over towards Martyn.
“Help us.” He mouthed.
He jolted his arms up, but at that instant, they went down like he was chained to it. Count Zekkif’s a magic chained them up to those instruments.
“What are your names?” Martyn and Kaeyi whispered.
“Sparkles*,” the red headed man mouthed.
“Parvis,” the man on the cello mouthed.
“Kogie,” mouthed the man on the bass.
“Leo, and please save us from this hell!” mouthed the man xylophone.
“Okay we promise, we’ll get you out of here as fast as we can!” Martyn whispered.
Sparkles* nodded and turned back around, to the keys of the piano. Martyn and Kaeyi ran towards the dance floor to find Zekkyou and Toby, which was a huge mistake. The music changed into a smooth, romantic tone, people started to get with their special companion and started to dance. They were about to slip past everyone, but someone pushed onto the dance floor in which them came into a ballroom dance position. Before they knew it they were dancing to the music, however they tried get out of the stance, but it was like some sort of magic was pulling them together, and not let go of one another’s hand.
“Wow, I didn’t know you can dance,” Kaeyi commented.
“Me either,” Martyn chuckled.
The danced across the floor, trying to stay towards back. When the song ended, Martyn kissed Kaeyi’s hand like a gentleman and Kaeyi gave him a small nervous giggle. The two of them proceed to go find Zekkyou and Toby. Zekkyou was standing silently watching the two of them. Not long after Toby and a different girl, one with black hair, in a deep blue dress and has exotic eyes joined the group. Toby’s clothes were torn and looked like a werewolf tried to maul him.
“What the hell happen-“Martyn began.
“I had to save his sorry butt from a group of girls over there.” The woman pointed to a bunch of girls that were being pulled out of t building, “Just wanted to come and tell you he’s fine. Good luck Prince Bunion.”
She walked away from the group and Toby looked at her longingly.
“You can go meet up later if you want Toby,” Martyn chuckled.
Toby just gave him a look and then got himself together. As Martyn was about to tell the men on the stage a cold chill filled the room. They looked towards the stage and there stood the man of the hour. Count Zekkif.
