The guests danced gracefully across the dance floor.

A little girl stood helpless in the sea of people. She raised her head and looked around, peering at each face. Where was her mother? She didn't dare make a sound. No one noticed her at all. Maybe it was because she was too small.

She walked through the crowd and looked at all the smiling faces. The she suddenly tugged tightly at one woman's dress.

The smile on the woman's face faded away. "What is it?" she asked, frowning.

"Auntie, I want to go see Mom." The little girl looked at her timidly.

"Oh... What's your mother's name?" The woman studied the girl and saw that she was dressed in expensive clothing.

"I… I don't know," the little girl said fearfully.

"If you don't know, then how can I help you find your mother? Go away, you little pest!" The woman was disgusted by the audacity of this little girl. How dare she come to this ball and ruin her mood? Why would a child come here? Wasn't it just ridiculous?

"Auntie, please help me find my mother." The little girl tugged at her dress more tightly.

"I told you to go away!" The woman swatted the little girl and pushed her towards the ground. The little girl fell on the floor with a soft thud.

"Wah!" the little girl cried out loud. She attracted the attention of many people. Suddenly, the room erupted into whispers. People looked

at the woman with narrowed eyes. Feeling embarrassed, she left angrily.

The little girl sat on the ground crying for a while, and then suddenly saw that a little boy was looking at her. He was about the same age as her. "Don't cry. What's your name?" the boy asked in a sweet voice.

"My… My name is..." The little girl blinked and stared at the flying object behind the boy.

The little boy seemed to notice the fear in the little girl's eyes. He turned around and stood up abruptly. It was a red wine glass. The little girl was so frightened that she lowered her head and closed her eyes. She could not get herself to move. The glass seemed suspended in the air. Then, a pair of small hands tightly held the little girl's hands. She felt someone pull her up.

Crash! The glass shattered into pieces the moment it hit the ground. A clear, sharp voice brought the little girl back to the present. She felt the warmth in her palms and saw an angel smiling at her.

Golden light framed the boy's face as he helped her up. She suddenly felt a strange sense of comfort and security.

People began to dance once more as the musicians picked up their instruments to play. They played a Waltz and the whole room was filled with beautiful music. The little boy and the little girl locked eyes and it was in that moment that they knew that they were meant to find each other.
