Well then my good sir, perhaps We should engage in conversation with you about some topic or another?
We have been looking into this Ball for a few years as of now, it's more of a habit than anything else for us. But We rarely make Our presence known. A few of Our Guild mates decided to come together with Us to make the event more fun. What brought you to this Ball as your name does not strike a cord to Us?
"Ah, well I do think We shall pass on brandy my dear. Perhaps there are others with an interest in it however. Do be careful We should not like you to trip and cause yourself harm." the smile on her face behind the mask was clearly evident in the mild teasing tone in her voice.

Now now, none of this 'Master' business... I'm just trying to make sure you don't take a spill. It would be a shame if your clothes got ruined by those drinks.
Oh, but Mas- I mean, sir, I could get into terrible trouble if I'm caught being so informal. I am ever grateful for the advice, however. I could barely afford to replace these bloomers, much less the dress I was given for the evening. Spilling would indeed be... a shame.
