That was the first thing that came to mind when Lani entered the huge, wooden doors held out for him by the servants. 'There cannot be a better dinner party than this.' He thought. The ceilings were high and gorgeous chandeliers were hanging, people were dressed in flashy outfits--everything and everyone seemed to have a golden glow. It was like King Midas's very own palace. Still half-frozen from awe, he started walking inconspicuously--or at least he tried to--in his fancy tuxedo get-up. Still pretending to be "unseen," Lani went over to the tables where they had the appetizers for the guests. 'I swear, nothing could make this party better. I mean look at all the snacks! They're in silver and gold platters!' Before he even got the chance to grab a bowl of the deluxe nuts in front of him, he saw something glint, from the corner of his eye.
It was a chocolate fountain.
Suddenly, the whole world seemed to stop. It was just him and the fountain-of-all-that's-heavenly. Beside it was a platter of fruit kabobs, waiting to be submerged into the chocolate sea. 'But wait...' He remembered something. That something was the words his father told him a week ago. "Son, if you're gonna want to still have your teeth all ready for munching on your sweets, well you better regulate your addiction." And that was something he managed to go through. Until now.
His stomach seemed to lurch, and his throat was not begging for water, but chocolate. His eyes were full of desire, and he was at the verge of drooling. But he was better than that. Lani closed his eyes and shook his head furiously, bringing him back to his senses. He was suddenly aware again of the people surrounding him, talking to each other and drinking champagne. But once again, his eyes diverted back to the chocolate fountain. 'C-cannot, r-r-resist. Must. Have. CHOCOLATE!'
And with that, he walk-ran to the chocolate fountain. His pace slowed as he approached the majestic aura emanating form it. 'There it is, in all its glory.' He reached for a kabob slowly, imagining himself masticate gently the chocolate-covered fruits. He raised the kabob, and slowly, slowly...
Lani groaned. "Quiet, I'm SLEEPING!"
