This annual ball was quite a magnificent affair.  It was given some time
before Shrovetide to celebrate the birthday of a famous illustrator
whose pencil had immortalized, in the style of Gavarni, the extravagant
carnival parade down La Courtille.  As such, the ball was an altogether
merrier, noisier and more Bohemian occasion than was usual for a masked
ball.  Many artists had arranged to meet there; they arrived with an
entourage of models and pupils, who, by midnight, had become quite
Raoul climbed the grand staircase at five minutes to midnight.  He did
not linger to admire the many-coloured costumes on display all the way
up the marble steps of one of the most luxurious settings in the world;
nor did he allow himself to be drawn into the facetious conversation of
masked guests.  He simply ignored all the jesting remarks, and shook off
the attentions of several all too merry couples.
Crossing the big crush-room and escaping from the dancers' farandole
that had encircled him awhile, he at last entered the salon mentioned by
Christine in her letter.  The small room was crammed with people either
on their way to supper at the restaurant in the Rotunda or back from
raising a glass of champagne.
In the midst of the gay and lively hubbub, Raoul thought that, for their
mysterious assignation, Christine must have preferred this crowd to some
lonely corner.
He leaned against a door-jamb and waited.  He did not have to wait long;
a black domino passed him and deftly touched his hand.  He understood
that it was Christine and followed her.
'Is that you, Christine?' he murmured, barely moving his slips.
The black domino promptly looked back and raised her finger to her lips,
no doubt to caution him against uttering her name again.  Raoul followed
on in silence.
