The ball room’s glass walls mirror the guests
Twirling among an army of glass figures.
Linda hesitates near a statue of a weeping woman.
Wet tears flow down her cheeks.
She’s tempted to touch the woman’s face.
Instead, she pulls Todd away from the sad sight.
The grandfather clock chimes midnight.
The dancers stand frozen
Until the last chime
Rings off in the distance.
The music begins again.
How strange. What was that about? And those statues. Are people frozen inside?
Linda turns to speak to Todd.
She’s left standing alone among the statues.
Huddled in a corner are her friends.
Shana is ready to take action.
“Everyone has disappeared upstairs.
We should follow them
And find out what they’re hiding.”
The glass staircase gives them
A perfect view of the diminishing party below.
Three closed doors stand waiting for them.
The middle one offers them a tropical paradise.
Marmoset monkeys hanging from trees.
