The moon shone bright down on the city of Nora, its white aura gleaming down on the city streets below. It was a magnificent building, the center of business for both demons and humans, working together in harmony like they had lived together all their lives. Even at night, the streets were bustling, the buildings alight with flecks of gold like fireflies, glimmering in the distance. Nora City was a big city, truly the capital for the continent of Nora, where billboards rang and shined with bright letters and numbers advertising the latest fads or items or a company. Buildings rose so high they almost touched the sky and the stars beyond. Cars beeped, bicycles ringed, carriages and their horses clopped and clapped right on by on the streets in harmony with everything mechanized. To anyone who looked at the city from afar, it was beautiful and breathtaking on so many levels and it was a wonderful place for anyone to live. Among the tall buildings and the world of technology nestled a public park, Valentine Park. A beautiful nature solace where trees of green and orange grew peacefully alongside a calm lake that ran across the park. They say a long time ago, a big grassy hill stood where Valentine Park was, where a big tall tree with a thick trunk stood tall and proud. It was a place where couples often came to confess to each other, and a place where many couples made their first ties together. A romantic tree. That is why it was called Valentine Park. Though normally peaceful, today was a day for celebration and fun. A circus had decided to come! A great big tent was set up in the center of Valentine Park, and it was a well known circus as well! A travelling group of the most wondrous people in the world with all sorts of magic to be seen. Acrobatics and death-defying feats, escaping from the more dire situations, beasts being conjured from thin air and tamed no matter how wild they were, it was a famous group of talented people known for their skills. Even the most well behaved children would come, past their bedtimes into the darkest of the nights to see the show. Even the most powerful of businessmen and businesswoman would leave their office as soon as possible, grab some popcorn and walk towards the bright lights than shone brighter than stars. "Welcome to our circus! P A N D E M O N I U M!" Standing in front of the gates, surrounded by many people looking into the stores filled to the brim with food, ladies wearing top hats that looked like swirling candy canes and dresses that looked as if they were made from cotton candy, were a young man and young woman who looked to be teens. Despite the business of the lobby, it was clear that their customers stood back to gape at them. A young man with tousled brown hair and a mischievous look, wearing what looked like a tuxedo of the darkest red. Bright white beeped from under his blazer, his tie a scarlet red, beaming at a child as she walked past, blinking at the welcoming couple as her tiny hands held onto a stick of cotton candy. Beside him was a young woman wearing a beautiful dress, her skin so pale and her hair so fine it looked like spider's silk. People stared at her and her ghostly figure, but she paid them no heed as she waved at a passing guest. "Enjoy the show!" They looked so incredibly happy that the people who waltzed into the tent couldn't help but smile back. A wail broke the layers of laughter and smiles, a young girl who had been frightened by one of the frowning masks set on the wall, the lights around it blinking and flashing when she had approached. Despite her mother's attempts to quiet her down, they were unsuccessful. With no option, she hurried along down towards the hallway leading to the inside of the tent. "There, there. Don't cry, princess." The young man winked at the girl as she approached, a flame flickering to life between his lips as he spoke, turning into a ring shaped as a love heart before disappearing into smoke. The girl stopped her wailing, her face turning into one of astonishment and surprise at the trick. The fire-breathing boy's partner moved to pin a rose into her hair, as white as her hair, a light fragrance coming off from the petals. This was such a joyous, welcoming place. It was the most wonderful circus in the world! Surely, there was nothing this circus had to hide?
