                I awakened before the door to the apartment opened. I had always been a light sleeper, and with heightened senses it was even easier to waken from my dreamless rests.
 
 "Hello," I said, coming out of Azrael's bedroom, clutching at the collar of the dressing gown. I glanced at the clock on the wall. 3:01AM. Azrael certainly had perfect timing.
 
 Boxman stretched and gave me a nod as he went over to the kitchenette in search of something cold to drink. Azrael stood smiling at me. He smelled of smoke, dirt and an image of a stuffy office filled with papers, stale coffee and the distinct stench of corruption flashed across my mind. It hung about him, tainting his Aura, his clothes invisibly. He looked as immaculate as ever, but if it were bad or strong enough, I could sometimes sense places and time that someone has walked through.
 
 "I see you managed to make yourself quite comfortable," he said, running a hand through his dark brown hair.
 
 I nodded. "Thank you. You two aren't going anywhere else tonight? I just need to step out for a while and find something to wear to the function tomorrow."
 
 Azrael's amber eyes twinkled knowingly. He watched as I disappeared back into his bedroom briefly, coming back out clad in the clothes I came in. I appreciated his sense of discretion - he knew Mirah's clothes didn't suit me, but his smile and warm manner assured me he understood perfectly.
 
 At half past four, I returned to the flat with my goods: a tempting, ankle-length gown made entirely out of black latex, with a back cut all the way down to just above my buttocks and held in place by ribbons laced up in lazy zig-zags, and a pair of beaded slip-on heels. There were gloves made of black French lace with a pretty violet bow on the backs of each hand, and a great, tarnished-silver choker that would encase my neck in its beautiful, cold firm grip.

 ((AH FINE! im making this up as i go, forgive me if it jarrs.))
 
 I glanced up from the sheet music i was parusing to watch boxman roll a blunt and light it.
 
 "I can't understand why you insist on buying cannabis. It no longer effects you; you dont breathe."
 
 "What can i say? Old habits die hard."
 
 "mmmm."
 
 I needed something really phenominal for the affairs tomorrow night. it was unlike me to wait until the last minute for this sort of thing. ah...paganini. perfect. i laid the selected sheet music aside and went out of the study. as i passed the entryway the door opened, and Valoris strolled in, shopping bags in hand.
 
 "Ah, you're back. Lovely. You found what you were looking for i trust?"
 
 "More or less, yes."
 
 "Good, good."
 
 I turned from here and went to the piano forte, opening my violin case and drawing forth the gleaming instrument of polished wood.
 
 "Ah, were you going to play?"
 
 "I was. Do you play?"
 
 "i...no."
 
 "Come now, you must have some talent then. You are Toreador are you not?"
 
 "Yes well..."
 
 "I'm sure ypu'll have something for the affairs tomorrow. If you'll excuse me"
 
 "No. Stay. Play for me."
 
 I looked at her for a moment, slowly smiling.
 
 "Very well. Please, sit."
 
 Valoris made herself comfortable on the couch as i reflexivly gave my stradivarius several minor adjustments. Once i was satisfied with its tuning, i placed it in the hollow of my neck, raised my bow at a sharp angle, and tore into the song.

 As i played, my body swayed with the music, and i leaned forward, so that it seemed i was pouring my very soul into the instrument. I've been told that it is at once hypnotic and jarring. As i played, i felt a sensation normally reserved for feeding, where the weorld around me seemed to grow dim, but a small circle of light illuminating me, and i fancied, as i often did, that my heart began to beat in time to the music. The last few strains of the heartbreaking melody wracked my body and filled the room, finally fading away into silence. i stood unmoving for a moment, then lowered my violin and looked to see Valoris on her feet, with tears welling in her eyes. I grinned at her, and she laughed.
 
 "That was...beautiful."
 
 "I do my best."
 
 We stood together in silence for a moment that seemed to last an eternity. It was i who broke the silence.
 
 "I am curious valoris, about what your talent is. would you care to show me?"

                For a moment, I was bewildered. Not exactly bewildered, but more awkward as answers to Azrael's questions popped into my head unwittingly.
 
 I cracked a smile, hoping he would not feel my embarassment.
"Well..." I cough. "I don't have any great talent for music, but I make a good partner." I swallowed. "In a dance, a waltz really. And in bed." The last sentence I looked at him straight in the eye, even though my embarassment had surmounted to a point where I hoped the floor would open and swallow me up.
 
 Before he could respond, I caught his right hand, lifted it and moved close to him so quickly it seemed like a split second I was two feet away from him a minute ago.

 
 "Why don't I demonstrate?" I smiled casually, hoping to dispell the awkward moment. Then I blushed. "The waltz, that is."
 
 (*isn't sure how Az would react, so stops here and waits*)

 I gazed into vals eyes, and smiled.
 
 "sure. demonstrate away. the waltz, that is."
 
 my smile had a knowing quality to it, and val amost laughed despite her obvious and slightly confusing discomfort. i took her hand in mine, and placed my other around her waist.
 
 "Shall i lead then?"
 
 ((carry on))

 (Az, don't slit my throat, but I'm having a time of my life trying to visualise how to follow up the scene. Just to let you know.)
