Don't say a word and keep the mask on.
Al and Gail have been invited to a grand gala this Halloween, masks
and costumes required. Tonight's event is taking place at the
Memorial Auditorium, a building known to host everything from music
concerts to college graduations. This is a fund raising event to help
build a new wing to the children's hospital so many of the social
elite will be present. It's not often that the couple will be able to
rub elbows with local celebrities and professional athletes; even
though you won't be able to see who is under the costume.

bustling with excitement. Limousines line the street in front of the
building as all the high society people step out in their designer

to superheroes, all of them ready to enter into the costume contest.

the back of his head. Gail is dressed as Queen of the Dark Elves with
a fancy headdress and her black mask attached to it. She has the
pointy ears and dark lipstick to accentuate her evil look. No one
else in the building knows about the couple and their plan to have a
sexual encounter here at the party. It wouldn't be such a big deal;
most people will come to these parties for some sweaty sex in the
coat room. Al and Gail however want to take it up a notch; he wants
to film his wife steaming it up with some random stranger in the coat
room. They keep their eye out for someone perfect, alone, and ready
to go. The couple mingles for a bit and has a few drinks.

the king says to her, "This year I think we can take it."
couples move on and speak with others; just for the hell of it Gail
and Al even enter the contest. The band plays on as dancing gets
going out on the parquet, the two walk around the floor to retrieve
more refreshment. That's when she sees her target- a man walking
alone dressed as a barbarian with a complete wolf headpiece draping
over him. He has a large broadsword on his back and bulging muscles.

pair set their plan in motion. Al walks away from his wife in the
opposite direction and Gail stays where she is at the bar. The idea
is to walk up to the barbarian and explain a precarious situation;
something that wearing a costume aids in perfectly. Al wants to come
up behind him and start a casual conversation before proposing his
conundrum. The man walks up to the costume contest registration
table, Al walks up right behind him.

of something like that. I went with The Phantom thinking the ladies
would like it, but you take the cake."

how'd you guess?" Al doesn't say a word; he just motions his
hand over the sexy body of The Barbarian to let his wife know he's
found the target. "Like I said, if you got it let 'em see it."

they recently broke up and he wants to move on to someone new. She
knew he was going to be at this event and thought she would be able
to surprise him. He saw her costume in her closet one day so he knows
what she will be wearing. "Turn around." The Barbarian
turns around when asked, "You see the one in grey dressed as the
dark elf queen?"
