Danny really, really, really wanted to go to that masquerade party. It wasn’t fair, he thought to himself, that mommy and daddy get to dress up in costumes and go out all night playing. Why do they get to play and not sleep until late? This was just not fair. Going to costume parties should be for kids, he thought to himself as he grumbled inside while playing with Ruth, the babysitter.

Finally, Danny grew up.

One day, he put on his mask and went to that masquerade party.

The mask never came off.

The party never ended.
