Chambermaid Swing / Parov Stelar 

~Sunday, August 19;
After the other day's bloody and violent battle between the Morattis and the Kings, Chicago's Mayor Parker is deciding to draw attention away from organized crime in order to host a masquerade benefit gala. Along with beautiful Billie Jameson's help, Mayor Parker is hoping to raise money and support for his second campaign as mayor. Only the best of the best with deep pockets are invited. Did you make the cut?

Yvette smoothed the fabric on her thighs, and sighed. She wasn't of high money, but she thought maybe a little flirting could get her in with the bodyguard. She finally came around to the entrance, she cleared her throat and pursed her lips. 

"Hello... Mister." She said, smiling coyly. The bodyguard just glanced at her and nothing more. Drat. 

"You know," she started, licking her bottom lip and brushing her hand down her dress slowly "I've always had a thing for guys like you" She smiled and looked up at him, and he was grinning at her. Checkmate. 

"You know, I don't do this all the time, doll. But for you I'll let you pass" he said, glancing up and down at her gown. She cringed, but kept up the act. When he opened the door, she winked at him, and went in, toward the glittering light of the masquerade. 

~

Yvette smiled and swinged to the music of the night, only hearing a few comments about her, some nice, some, different. "WHAT is she wearing? Does she think she's a princess or something?" was one of the quips said about her. But she didn't mind, they weren't gonna cram their style. 

One of them was Betty, in all her glory. Yvette has seen her at all the parties, cabaret dancing, Betty didn't seem to like her much. She always smirked at her direction and made snotty comments about her. 

Betty sauntered over to Yvette and looked at her up and down "Why, hello, Cinder-ella." She said surely and brushed past her, bumping into her along the way. Yvette growled low before she went to the drinks table. She downed a shot of vodka, while she glanced around the big room. "Hello.. Yvette." she heard a whisper behind her, very close. She stopped her glass mid way to her mouth and froze, paralyzed. She turned slowly around and looked up to a gentleman with a black mask. 

"Hello... Mister." She sqeaked. He had a dark quality about him that was handsome and at the same time scary. "Wymer, Mister. Wymer. That's all you need to know, for now." he glanced at her and grinned. 

He was handsome. 

"Would you like a dance with me?" He asked her, with a questioning glance. She couldn't see all of his face, because of the mask, but she could tell from his eyes, he was handsome. He had curly black hair, a tuxedo, and the mask was long, almost covered his whole face. "uh, Sure" she said. Trying to sound seductive, but really sounded like a mouse to her. 

She took his arm, and went on to the floor. She glided with him, somehow their dancing fit together, the quietness overwhelming. She decided to break the ice with a question. 

"So.. what do you do? You know, career-wise" she mumbled, glancing up at him. "You don't need to know, Yvette" Then, she remembered he said her name already "Wait, how do you know my name? Who are you?" She was at a haze, but she was determined to figure out who he was "I've, got connections, I know a lot of people here." he said, his voice dark and deep." He whisked them off the dance floor to a door entrance, where some people were, but it was quite. "Look, nobody should know I'm here. I'm not well liked around here in this city. But, you should know this, doll. I have a interest in you, and I want to know you better. I will send you a note to your apartment telling you where and when we will meet, and I can give you help, for you and your siblings." He whispered, fast but sure. He winked, and disappeared, into the night, leaving Yvette there with full of questions.

She walked back over to the bar to get a club soda, she didn't want to get more drunk. "Hey doll!" a shriek behind her turned her around. Eve, one of her new friends hugged her slightly and took a swig of Yvette's drink. "Ugh, no alcohol? What's with you!" Eve said, but still smiling. 

"Well, your dress looks.. very flowy!" Eve gestured at Yvette's gown. "Just between you and me, everyone here loves it, they are just jealous of you, sweetcakes." She whispered to Yvette, bumping elbows with her. "your dress looks lovely also!" Yvette complimented Eve, who of course, had a smashing outfit.

"Listen, babe. Everybody's talking 'bout you and Betty's - ahem - encounter earlier. You need to get on her good side, she's a bad person to get on her bad side. Trust me." Eve explained, with a seriousness of her voice. "No, Eve, its not my fault! She just has something against me, I have nothing bad to say about her, but I'm not putting it down without a fight." She said, confused about why Betty disliked her so. She didn't do anything! 

"Well, it was fun chatting with you, I gotta go make a dil-ya-able. Abbyssinia!" Eve giggled, then skipped off. 

Then Yvette realized Eve, though very nice, wasn't the richest. "Eve snuck in, like me" She whispered to herself, and shook her head in amusement.

She was going to enjoy the rest of the evening, with no Betty or mysterious men no more!

{The rest of this story of the masquerade is in Klaus's point of view} 

I Love You, three simple words, yet he couldn't say it to her. "I really like you... What a idiot" He was thinking to himself, playing back the conversation, what he said to her. She was beautiful, she just didn't know it. And he had something that she could do for him. It was life or death for him.

He stumbled out, and brushed past the bodyguard, in a wave of black.

He pushed away the girls in very little clothing, trying to turn tricks for money, he didn't want them.

He whisked back to his mansion, never looking back. 

Yvette, Yvette, Yvette, went through his mind.


Yvette.
