Leia Diamanti, dressed in a green crushed velvet gown and green silk high heels, made her way into the Masquerade Ball, hoping her mask wasn't making her makeup sweat off. She nodded and smiled at the Headmistress before wandering around the room, checking out the beautiful decorations which lined the walls and various other places in the room. Once finished with this, she went over to a dark corner and started practicing the waltz. She knew she looked ridiculous, dancing with no one, but she didn't care. One never knew when one might get asked to dance, and one certainly didn't want to look like a complete fool during an actual dance.
"One...two...three...one....two....three..." she murmured, looking down at her feet as she danced, making sure she didn't trip over them as she was wont to do even while simply walking down the corridor. Even as she thought this, however, she bumped into a Halloween decoration and slipped onto the floor, onto her rear end.
"Oh perfect, Diamanti." she growled to herself. "Way to make a complete idiot of yourself in front of the Headmistress. You're lucky none of the other students are here, otherwise you'd be the complete laughingstock of Hogwarts." Saying this, she stood up again, brushed her gown clean, and made her way over to the safety of a table, where she sat down and tried to regain some dignity.
