Rose and Florence had finished speaking to one another “Mistress would you like to rest?” She asked Rose, she quickly nodded and Florence started to change Rose into night garments.
“Keep the party going, just tell the guests that I have to retire for the night, okay Florence?” Rose giggled a little as she laid in her bed and shut her eyes, falling asleep.
“Lady Rose has retired for the night but she wishes for the ball to continue, though it will end at 11:30 PM and keep in mind it is 9:00 so you all will have 2 hours left thank you, that is all I have to say.” She bowed then walked down the steps.
Lawrence took a sip from his wine, looking at the others. The Chinese girl from before sat down in a seat, a taller man walked over to her, he gestured for her to stand up so she did, the man sat down and picked her up gently, sitting her on his lap.
Michael sighed, he padded toward Florence as she had just been looking around. Michael slowly approached her, he tapped her on the shoulder. Florence turned around to face Michael, “Yes?” she asked him, he smiled softly and held his hand out to dance with her, she humbly accepted his hand and he placed his hand on her waist.
Florence softly placed her arm on his shoulder and Michael held her hand as they began to dance. Michael’s eyes didn’t shift away from Florence, his face locked on her lovely green eyes. Florence gazed in his light blue eyes.
She didn’t know the man she was dancing with had been the one who practically harassed Rose, “What’s your name my lovely flower?” Michael asked. His eyes narrowed curiously. Florence blushed.
“M-My name is F-Florence” she responded shakily, “Well it’s nice to meet your acquaintance Florence. My name is Michael.” he smiled softly. Lawrence chuckled as his eyes wandered around, he looked to see if there was anyone he could dance with.
His eyes locked on one woman in particular, the clock struck 10:00, this didn’t leave much time left. Lawrence quickly finished his drink, then stumbled towards her. He extended his hand out and the woman graciously accepted it. They had begun to dance.
Suddenly a loud crash could be heard. Rose had fallen out of her bed at the cause of a nightmare. Florence paused for a moment, she excused herself from dancing with Michael and rushed up the stairs.
Once Florence reached Rose’s bedroom door, she then slammed it open to see Rose lying on the floor unconscious, she ran to Rose’s side and helped her up shaking her a little bit to make her wake up, “Mistress what happened, please talk to me.”
Florence said as she swept Rose into a hug, “Was it a nightmare that you had?” She said waiting for an answer from her mistress. “C-Cancel the rest of the ball.” Rose declared as she opened her eyes wide.
Rose thought she had seen a sudden red flash that scared her. Rose had quickly clung to Florence and tightened her grip on to her maid. “Please take Uncle Lawrence to his room for the week.” She ordered with a not so soft tone, but it was out of frustration.
“Anything else Mistress?” Florence asked politely, “Please carry me downstairs, I am kind of hungry” Rose responded. Florence quickly picked up Rose and started to carry her bridal style, she took her mistress out of her room and down the stairs. Florence spotted Lawrence, “Sir, Rose has requested you to go to your room.”
“Everyone in the room still here sorry the interruption yet again but Lady Rose has declared to end the night of the ball due to sleeping problems, I hope you all had a wonderful night, there are gift bags over on the table to the left, there is one for everyone so please enjoy them, Lady Rose also would like to say a few words.”
She quickly sat down Rose, “I am very sorry for this inconvenience but I couldn’t let the ball continue. I hope you can forgive me, I will be attending a ball in a few weeks. I hope you all enjoyed your time here.” She bowed and everyone else did as they walk over to the table and grabbed their parting gift and left the manor.
Rose sighed as she walked into the dining room, Florence walked into the kitchen and made her mistress a parfait and brought it into the dining room for her. “Thank you,” Rose said firmly as she began to eat her parfait.
