The Masquerade

It was like a fairytale. Maya went to the yearly ball her father threw around Chistmas. Bored out of her mind she was about to go upstairs when a tall man in a mask grabbed her hand. She let out a gasp but followed him to the dance floor. Who was this mystery man? And would this be the last time she saw him? All she knew was that once the dance started she didnt want to stop.


1. The Ball Chapter 1

Maya's P.O.V

I stood there looking in the mirror. I had maybe 5 minutes before my apperance down stairs. I had on a fitted but loose purple floor length dress on with a beaded top. My long dirty blonde hair fell on lightly on my shoulders. I looked amazing and was ready to go downstairs. But for some reason I wanted to stay behind.

Slowly I made my way down the cascading stairway with my sister and best friend. My sister Emily looked AMAZING!!! She had on an electric blue dress on to match her eyes. My friend Caroline had a pale pink one strap floor length dress on. No one was sure if she would last in it the whole night though because she was only 5'1" and kept falling. I think she will though. We all had our curly hair down with our masks on. Did I mention this was a masquerade?

We all went our seperate ways when we reached the bottom. Each of us had already been taken to the dance floor already and it was only 9:00!!! It was a blast though. After a few hours I got bored and stood by the punch bowl with a few others.

Everything was dull and slow now. I could still see Emily and Caroline out on the dance floor having fun though. It was 11:30 when I was about to go upstairs. Just then, a tall man grabbed my hand and spun me around. I had no clue who he was but he looked about 18, my age. The boy had blonde hair and the prettiest blue eyes.

Even though I had no clue who he was I could tell things would be interesting. He kept both eyes on me as he swept me to the dance floor.

Soon we were talking and talking and I didn't want to stop. There was just something about him, I don't know…. I still didn't know his name but he was sweet and kind.

I could see my dad watching from across the room, but I didn't care.

The clock struck twelve. I was having such an amazing time with this man that I didn't want him to leave. I wished we could stay forever just dancing the night away.

All of a sudden he stopped me. He pulled me in close and crashed our lips together. I could feel the sparks flying!

When we pulled apart he whispered, “ I need to go, I hope I can see you again.”

He had a mysterious smile on his face. I was about to ask what his name was when he turned and rushed away.

I desperatly tried to follow. Over and over I yelled, “ Wait what's your name!?!?”

He never answered though. I had reached the front door in time to see him jumping into a black Escalade. Just before closing the door he looked back and gave me one more smile.

I needed to find out who my mystery man was.
