In the courtyard below, a purple skinned woman with delicately curved horns glides dreamily between groups of guests to make small talk. Every one of them wears a mask.
Heads turn as one of the house doors swings open and a guard briskly approaches the elegant woman. He leans in to whisper something and as he speaks the tension at the ball is shattered by the sound of a glass hitting the ground. Confusion spreads through the crowd as the horned woman gathers up her opulent skirts and dashes inside with the guard close behind.
