The BeginningYou spun around the huge ballroom, ignoring the fact that you dancing alone. Everyone found that strange, a lady dancing alone. Your (eye colour) eyes were closed as you danced yourself around the room. You were sick of waiting in the corner, waiting for someone to notice you. After thirty minutes into the ball, you stood up and decided to dance yourself, even though it was strange. You slightly opened them, glancing around to make sure you didn't run into anyone. The ball was, shockingly, in your own manor. Why, then, were you alone and not dancing with anyone? You didn't know to be honest.
Your maid ended the song, she placed the violin down and clapped her hands together. "May I have your attention, please?" She said, her (maid hair colour) hair was shining in the lights, her make up was extravagant. You guessed she tried to hit it off with someone tonight. You looked around, everyone was staring at her. "Thank you, now the reason you are all here today is because it is someones birthday!" She said, motioning to you, you grinned as everyone clapped when you made your way next to her. She bowed as she stepped away from you. "Welcome everyone to the (last name) manor! This is my (age) birthday ball so everyone, enjoy!" You said, earning more applaudes. You giggled as you turned to look at your maid, she was giving a strange look at someone. "Seriously (maid name) could you try and not seduce someone at my birthday?" You asked, she looked at you with (maid eye colour) eyes and smiled. "Sorry, Ms, but I don't think I can do that." She leaned close to you and whispered. "Too many hotties here."
You sipped the cold tea you left on the table and stuck out your tongue. "Is there something wrong, madam?" Someone asked, you looked up and saw a raven haired butler, you raised an eyebrow as you stared into his crimson red eyes. "Ah, yes. Everything is quite alright, it's just my tea is cold." You stuck your tongue back out at the tea, you saw a white gloved hand in front of you. "I can take care of that, if you'd like." He said smiling with his eyes closed, you blinked a few times before setting the cup in is hand. "Ah, thank you...what is your name?" You asked, tilting your head once he almost walked away, he slightly tilted his head to the side, looking at you out of the corner of his eye. "Sebastian Michaelis." He said as he begun to walk away.
After you got your tea back, you smelled it. It was a different tea from then what you had before. You shrugged it off, it smelled amazing. You almost spit it out when you heard a girl scream, your head snapping to the noise. "Someone help them! They're stuck up there!" A girl shouted as she pointed up, your gaze looked up at the chandelier. Two kids were swinging around, looking as if they were doing acrobatics. You widened your eyes as you started to stand up, only to watch an orange haired man calmed the lady down. "Don't fret! They were born to do things like that!" He said, waving what looked like a skeleton hand. You raised both of your eyebrows as you sat down saying "Oh" silently. This was a strange night, your maid decided to invite every living soul she could, without your consent. You looked around, there were so many different people. You felt out of place even though it was your own manor, your own party.
But all too well knowing that because it was your birthday, you were going to go first.
Your maid stepped off the bucket, picked it up, and gave it to a blonde male wearing a strangely showing outfit. "Claude, put my ring in there." He said as he held up his hand, the man standing next to him slightly bowed. "Yes, your highness." He said blankly as he plucked a gold ring with a red gem in it, then placed it in the bucket with a loud clank. He then was ordered to place something in the bucket as well by the blonde male. After a slight disagreement, the yellow eyed male placed his glasses gently in the bucket. You watched as others either placed their item gently, or threw it into the metal bucket. After every male put an item into it, your maid looked inside and slightly moved it, rearranging the items. "I wonder who goes first..oh wait I know!" You closed your eyes, silent trying to pray that you weren't picked.
Your hope was shattered as you heard the sound of the bucket being shoved in front of you. "The birthday girl!"
You sighed as you opened your eyes, slightly looking at the bucket. You reached up and gently placed your hand in the bucket, feeling around.
