Masquerade~ Part 1

image
It was the biggest night of the entire year – the Duke and Duchess’ Annual Springtime Ball. I had not wished to go because I never did too well at large parties, balls, or anything such as that, but I knew I had to. If I hadn’t accepted the generous invitation – which was shocking I’d even received one – My family and I would have been completely disgraced. So at the ball, I did my best to engage with some of the other rich girls, but that didn’t go so well. I ended up listening more than talking.

image

As I was listening to the young ladies chat away, I had a strange feeling inside. Something wasn’t right.

image

I looked behind me and saw a young man watching the men and women dance away to the music.

image

Wait a second. I knew that face.

image

My heart was racing and I found it hard for me to breathe. “Calm. Stay calm.” I told myself.

image

“Please excuse me, ladies.” I said politely with a quick curtsy.


image

As I hurried toward the exit, someone tapped my shoulder.

image

“May I have this dance?” That horrid man inquired with a bow.

image

Knowing how improper it would be for me to refuse, I reluctantly said, “You may.”

image

We danced in silence for a moment. I didn’t dare speak or even look at him in the eye. I completely and utterly despised him.

image

“You know why I’m here, Liesel.” He whispered with a threatening tone.

image

“On the contrary, Frederic, I have no idea why you’re here.” I stated, still not even making eye contact.

image

“I need you to do something for me.” He began, his eyes squinted and cruel. He continued on to say, “And you will do it, because I’ve got a bit of leverage, which is something you’ll never have on me.”

image

“And what is that?” I questioned with disgust. “I knew your father. I know what he was and what he did. And I also know how you and your family have tried to hide it all your lives, but the truth has a way of coming out one way or another. Get me what I need, and I’ll keep your little secret.” Frederic offered. I was trying so hard to get the tears in my eyes to disappear. I knew that if I didn’t do what he wanted, he would expose the truth to everyone and our family would be shamed for eternity.

image

Anger and fear boiled up inside of me and I pushed myself away from him and fled from the palace, leaving Frederic standing alone with a scowl on his face.

That concludes part 1!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
