Silia was getting ready for the galla that was scheduled tonight withing the halls of her mother's castle. Her dress was in the fabulous new style, short in the front long in the back. Slightly permiscuous yes, but fitting of a princess who had no fiance and was also a mage. For female mages now aday's wore short dresses, but she was also a member of the royal court so she compromised with her mother to be able to wear this dress. Silia looked at herself in the mirror and nodded, perfect! Her hair was down and gorgeously played at her back in wonderous curls. She twirled and her maids clapped and giggled, "You will be the highlight of the ball Your Highness" one said. "Gorgeous! simply DARLING. You will start a new trend!" another giggled while clapping. Another fussed with some ribbons on the dress. When Silia left her room she walked with grace and confidence through the magically lit hallways. Her dress didn't even touch the floor as she walked alone to the ballroom. As she entered, a butler called out her name, "Her Royal Highness! Princess Silia ana' Raisa!" and instantly everyone bowed down except her mother who smiled up at her daughter. "Please rise, you are all recognized by the princess." she said as she walked down the steps. When they looked up from their bow's and curtsies and stood up, instantly chatter started back up. Though she was sure new conversations were started about her dress as well. She padded over to her mother. "Hello mother" she greeted with open arms allowing her mother to pull her into a hug. "My dear, you look wonderful." she said, a smile on her face. "thank you mother, and so do you." and she did, she had on a silk gown that fell to the floor beautifully accentuating her curves and her dark skin. Silia and her mother and a few of the courts women started talking, geting into different conversations. Enjoying themselves.
