A Walden woman heads to the attic to revive an ancient ritual, which has been handed down from generation to generation.

And the ritual of The Attic Ball begins.

From where I stood, I could see her gaze, those vibrant blue-green eyes that reminded me of the Caribbean Sea. When she saw him, her aqua eyes positively sparkled.
