At a Manor in the hills, the large ball room is romantically lit by a giant, ornate chandelier overhead. A small orchestra plays music that suits the elegant atmosphere. There is a small table in a corner of the room that holds hors d'oeuvres as well as a few butlers carrying around trays of Wine and Champagne. At the end of the ball room there are large french doors that lead out to a beautiful courtyard. The Grand Ball is held annually in the summer time for all creatures to enjoy. Though the owner of the Manor, who is also the host of The Grand Ball remains a mystery, no one has ever seen who the owner and host is, though its half the reason why most people attend.

Grace sat at her vanity within her large, elegant and dimly lit bedroom in the manor. She was fixing her hair into an updo for the ball as a tiny music box played her favorite song from a musical Xenos had taken her to see right after she arrived on earth . She rarely attended her own galas but when she did, she made sure to make herself anonymous. She often wondered why she even threw such an extravagant event every year. Maybe it was the fact that it rid her of her loneliness, the fact that there were people inside this lonely manor, regardless of the fact that she never associated with any of them. A young man in a dress shirt and black slacks , it was obvious that he was a butler, opened the door and stood in the door way. "Your guests have began to arrive, Madam." The butler said to Grace. Grace glanced at him and then went back to fixing up her long, think blonde hair. "Thank you, Emil..." She said quietly but just loud enough for the butler to hear her. "Please tell Xenos that I shall attend once ready. My hair is being dreadfully stubborn this evening." "Shall I go fetch a maid to help you, Madam?" The butler replied but Grace simply shook her head. The butler simply nodded and bowed and goodbye before closing the door behind him as he left.

Emily and Elliot entered the ballroom followed by their Master, Darius. He told them
"after your successful kill, I told I'd bring you two to this party I always go to
yearly." He kissed Emily on the lips. He said hello to some guest and smiled charmingly.
Darius looked around for the host. He saw Xenos and walked over to him. The twins followed
him obediently. They looked at Xenos with a cold, lifeless stare. "Hey. I would like you
to meet Emily and Elliot. By the way, have you seen Grace? I heard from a source that she
was actually coming tonight." He chuckled amused. He had his arm around Emily possessively
and Elliot narrowed his eyes at them.

Xenos was dressed in his usual wears but had a black venetian mask with silver trimmings on his head. He payed no mind to the siblings but simply nodded at Darius "Aye, That's what I was told... O' Course, she might decide to not show up." He said, slipping the mask onto his face as more people in formal attire began to fill the ball room. /// Grace had finally finished configuring her long, thick beautiful strawberry blonde hair into an updo for the occasion. She slipped out of her robes and into her ballgown that was just as extravagant as a wedding dress but she made sure was but wasn't too much of anything that would make her standout. She knew she would stand out regardless of what she wore, she always did whenever she attended her fancy parties. A mysterious young girl that was so beautiful that she was even able to tempt God that had never been seen before to almost all the people that attended her party whether they were new or old. Almost all the men would try to woo her and all the women stared at her in disgust and envy whenever she attended her galas but she tolerated their behavior and pretended to be oblivious. Grace slipped a pair of flats onto her feet, a diamond necklace around her neck and a pair of matching diamond earrings on her ears. She slipped out of her room which was on the second floor. Thankfully, all of the incoming guests were too busy socializing to notice her so she easily sneaked away to the servants quarters where she made her way to the courtyard. She casually entered the ballroom, not making any eye contact with her guests although many guests turned their heads to observe the beautiful girl enter the large room. Grace stood next to Xenos "Couldn't help but to wear the mask, could you?" she said, observing her guests, not noticing that Darius and the siblings were right there. Xenos simply chuckled in reply.

Darius smirked and said "Grace... you look so beautiful." His eyes shined as he seemed
intrigued by how beautiful she looked. Emily growled at him and he made her feel better by
kissing her. "Come lets go." He pushed the twins forward. "Move..." They obeyed. He
smirked once again. He looked at the guest deciding which looked strongest to join his
army that he was creating.

Grace turned her head to Darius, noticing his presence. "Hello Darius..." She greeted him with a curtsy, ignoring his compliment "I certainly hope you don't stir up any trouble this evening." As the three left, a butler came by with glasses of red wine and champagne on a serving tray and offered her and Xenos a drink; Grace took a glass of champagne but Xenos kindly said no. Grace took a few small sips of her champagne as few men came up to her, all of them asking to dance. She didn't want to dance with any of the them but to avoid suspicion, she agreed to dance with them all, one at a time. She curtsied and the first man bowed before he took her hand and led her to the center of the ballroom.

Darius took 3 wines from a waiters tray and handed one to each twin. "Drink up,
children." He sipped his wine. A shy girl asked him to dance and he chuckled. He handed
his wine to Elliot and went with the girl. He was used to being hit on by girls. He was
attractive after all. He didn't care for any of them. He was only dating Emily because she
was attractive but people found it weird cause he was practically her father. He did raise
her since she was 12

The man asked Grace questions about herself. She told the man that her name was Artemis, that this was the first time she had ever been to this annual party and that she heard of it from her grandmother before her untimely death. Of coarse, all of what she said was lies but the man seemed to believe all of it. Soon, the song had changed and the two of them stopped dancing. The man bowed and Grace curtsied before leaving. The other men rushed to her side, arguing as to whose turn it was. Grace shook her head at all of them "I'm sorry but it seems that just one dance has tired me. If you'll please excuse me, I'd like to take a lone stroll through the courtyard." She said, curtsying a goodbye to all of them and quickly but casually made it out to the courtyard. Xenos didn't follow her, he simply stayed where he was and watched the guests inside the ballroom. Grace was fine on her own, she didn't need anyone around to protect or look after her.

He excused himself from the women and went into the courtyard. "Hello... why are you out
here all by yourself?" He asked her. Darius glanced over and saw Elliot come by his side.
He handed Darius's wine to him and said "here you go, my master." Darius smiled and pat
him. "Good boy." He kissed his forehead. "Now leave me with her." Elliot bowed to him. "Oh
and Elliot... why don't you dance with some of the women?" Elliot looked at him and simply
told him "it would be improper of me, master but if you insist... I will obey." He bowed
to Darius once again and went inside. "So obedient..."

"Like a dog..." Grace muttered to herself, taking a sip of the champagne she had been holding this entire time. "I needed a moment alone to catch my breath." She replied with a heavy sigh. "I don't dance quite often." She took another sip of her champagne, it was a bit larger then her normal sips. The men that hadn't gotten a chance to dance with Grace had a jealous look on their faces as the spied on the two.

He chuckled amused at the men watching them. "Lets talk business. I want to start a war
and for a war, I need an army and money. What do you say, Grace?" His eyes changed to
blood red.

Grace took another sip of her champagne, going back to small usual sips. She didn't bother to look at him and her face remained expressionless. "Why must you bring this up? I have no interest in such things." Her voice didn't raise and she took another sip of the champagne.

"You don't have to fight, per say(persay? Idk) but it would be great if you could loan
soldiers and guards to fight for their kind. This war will break out eventually and I
don't think your demon kind would want to fight alongside angels." He smirked. "Give me a
call when you make up your mind." He handed her a slip of paper with his number on it and
walked back inside.

Grace shook her head and motioned for a butler to come to her. "Please dispose of this." She told the butler, handing him the slip of paper and without any questions or hesitation, the butler simply nodded and went off to go dispose of the piece of paper. She was confused as to what he meant about demons and angels. Could he have been planning an angels versus demons war? She shook the thought from her mind and took another sip of champagne.

Darius snapped his fingers and the twins came to his side obediently. He walked over to
Xenos. "Make sure Grace and her soldiers join in my cause. Don't want to have to kill her
do I? Be a doll and let her know that its either join me or her body will be ripped to
shreds on the side of the road. Got it?" He pat Xenos head, winked at him, and walked off.
