    The Aphrodite Balls setting was quite aesthetically pleasing in Richards opinion. His sisters were in attendance with their husbands which resulted in Richard quickly being left to his own devices.

    He had danced with a couple of debutantes, neither of which held his attention for longer than was necessary to see them safely escorted into the arms of the next name on their dance cards.

    Truth be told, he was getting a little bored. Well, that was until he unknowingly walked through the portion of the ball that was currently host to an Amortentia type of effect due to some girl sneezing in the corner. And so, Richard ended up unknowingly afflicted with something that would cause him to fall 'in love' with the first person to come across his line of sight.

    Richard turned towards the refreshment table and that was when he saw her - the most beautiful girl in the world, surely! He simply had to dance with her. "Excuse me, miss. Is there room on your dance card?" He asked as he approached her.

    Natsuko, despite her position as a fully inherited young lady, quiet out on her own, she wasn’t much used to being asked to dance, and so when the young man addressed her she looked over her shoulder, to make sure that he wasn’t addressing some other young lady, some pretty blonde creature, one of those ‘English roses’ that she so envied. When there was no one behind her save for the buffet table, she blushed profusely. Her pale skin flushed a bright pink, and she fidgeted with the dance card that hung from her wrist. ”Eh….why yes sir, I do indeed.” she offered with a curtsey, by way of greeting.

    Her general experience at balls was that she would stand for much of the evening engaging in talks with the much older, and generally married men – men such as old Armando Dippet had spent more time talking to Natusko at balls than any young beau. She had discovered that it was because many people assumed she didn’t speak English and so left her to her own devices, rather than engaging in awkward stilted conversations with the young Asian lady.

    ”Natsuko Mountbatton sir, ” she offered her name, and giving him a low bow, the blue silks and satins of her loose fitting gown fluttering as she did so. ”Might I have your name sir?” she asked, her dark brown eyes widening in some confusion but a little pleasure at the prospect of dancing.

    Belatedly, Richard realized that he recognized the young woman. He had dueled against her once. She didn't remember him? He had not made an impression! Richard was briefly hit with despair before he quickly dismissed it. The young woman had lost against him so of course she would not bother to remember him. He would do better by her this time and leave a much more lasting impression, he stubbornly decided.

    The way she looked over her shoulder endeared her to him all the more. Who else could he possibly be speaking to when all the world had ceased to exist as soon as his eyes had fallen onto her person? Her beautifully pale skin flushed quite attractively and Richard's heart soared at having caused such a reaction.

    Richard was pleased when she said that he had room on her card for him. "Natsuko Mountbatton," he repeated, committing it to memory. "Richard Gladstone. We met once before, actually though not in ideal circumstances. It was in a duel I won. I do hope you won't hold it against me." His words were spoken reverently. As if he might die on the spot if she were to say that she would hold his victory at her expense against him.
