Theme: Phantom of the Opera masquerade ball
Colour Scheme: gold, black and emerald green
Organizing a party is not easy, so I was glad not to be alone, Emma and Crystal seemed to know exactly what to do. I gave some suggestions and helped whenever he could.
"Crystal, what do I do with these chandeliers?"
She looked at me with an amused expression on his face and said "They should have a longer chain first of all."
The idea was to make the chandeliers / float / by air, and for that we were using long chains attached to the ceiling. "I think this could stay upon that table" Crystal said pointing to a table in the corner.
"All right." Put the object in the appropriate place and looked around admiring our work. The Great Hall was getting amazing. A little romance, a dash of mystery, a touch dark and voilà! All feel the presence of the Phantom of the Opera in our masquerade ball.
I grabbed a stack of papers that were on the table and went to the other side of the room where Crystal was choosing the tablecloths. "The invitations are ready. Already I send them?"
She looked around, probably looking for a mistake to be corrected. We were working on decorating early and for me and everything seemed perfect. "Yes, we can send them. We're ready do not you think?" She asked.
"Yes, we are." Candles, fabrics, lights, music ... everything was perfect. "I don't believe we could." I sighed.
Meg's eyes sparkled and she Could not stop smiling, "Oh, girls ... it's so divine I have want to dance." then she Began to swirl around the room. "Do you think everyone will like the much she?"
"Pleasepleaseplease I hope it so much" she looked around and sighed continuous "I hope that Emma will do a good job with flowers."
The flowers would be the last to be placed and Emma was responsible for this. "I also hope. But where is she?"
Crystal shrugged saying, "i do not have any idea, that girl is really... unpredictable"
"That's true, I never know what to expect from her. Well, I'll look in the garden... maybe she's talking to the gardeners or something." Crystal kept looking around, evaluating everything we had already done so far. "You sure you no longer need my help?" I asked.
"Do not worry and thank you for helping me" she replied with a smile. "Maybe I'll go in the garden too, you know something is read" she added. "I really need to relax myself and to clear my mind."
"All right. 'll See you later..." I smiled and ran to the garden.
After leaving the Great Hall went looking for Emma, but I ended up distracting me with a thing or two along the way. When I got to the gardens I saw Emma talking to one of his servants.
"EMMA" yelled as he ran to meet her. She looked at me from the corner of his eyes and returned to his conversation as if nothing had happened.
"Hey, I'm talking to you girl!" She sighed and turned to me with a face of few friends. "What do you want Melwen?"
I bit my lip to keep from the answer I wanted, after all we were a team and the success of a dependent of another. "I wonder if you need help with the flowers, Crystal and I ... "Emma did not let me finish" And how / you / could you help me? Do you even know the difference between a Carnation and Dahlia! "
"No I don't know."
She smiled and said with that air of superiority that so irritated me "So you can not help me. Moreover, Eloise and I already take care of everything. There was Eloise? "The servant nodded shyly. While Emma smiled disdainfully at me.
Even having seen all the decoration before, I could not help but be impressed when I entered the Great Hall. The evening everything seemed ten times more beautiful, brilliant and mysterious.
"Smile Melwen" Nick whispered as we descended the stairs together. I could not get alone, then he, as my advisor, should accompany me.
As responsible for the invitations was my duty to greet each of the guests and give them welcome.
I thought I would not to be kind and friendly to everyone, but with Nick at my side everything was easier.
After my duties as an organizer I believed that I could sit and watch while the others danced. But I was wrong.
"You would give me this dance, Milady?" I recognize that voice anywhere.
"Nick, you've got to be kidding, right?" Asked incredulously.
"Melwen, you refused all guys who asked for a dance. I will not let you pass every dance sitting at this table. "Taking my hand Nick took me to the center of the room before I had time to protest.
He pulled me towards him and started to lead me to the music, but I did not come off.
"What's wrong, girl?" He asked as discreetly as he could.
"You! You are my problem! "This should not be happening.
"Me?" Nick looked confused.
"Yes, you pumpkin head!" Sighed, "I do not dance. My fun in all party is sitting in my seat just watching. "
"I knew I should have given her dance class!" He started laughing relieved with the silly reason of my revolt. "Melwen you trust me?" The question was serious.
"What other choice do I have?" He raised an eyebrow, a sign that I should also get serious. "Of course I trust."
"That's better," he said smiling again, "All you have to do is let me guide her, just follow my steps." Then slowly the room started to spin.
