'Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.' - Aladdin, 1992.

Dora sipped her drink, somewhat uncomfortable in the silence. “Of course!” She answered Calypso’s question a little too quickly, hoping for at least some conversation. “What’s not to like about a night out with my best friend and my boyfriend?” She smiled to herself, still finding it novel to call him that. “Why, are you?”
Calypso cringed slightly when Eudora referred to Cassim as her boyfriend. It wasn’t that she wasn’t happy he’d found someone, it was just that she and the other girl didn’t get along very well. “Not as much as I’d like to…”
Dora had been dancing the night away with Cassim and Zinnia and all the friends she could find at the prom, when she felt like someone was watching her. She turned her head and saw Calypso sitting by the wall, not looking like she was enjoying it much, despite having got dressed up and making the effort of coming all the way here. Dora felt like she was watching a little too hard, maybe trying to keep an eye on her younger siblings, but she shook her head. That seemed a bit strange for the twins who weren’t exactly children.
Dora stepped away from the dance floor and headed to the bar to pick up a couple of drinks. Maybe some liquid fun would put a smile on her face. She walked over to Calypso holding the drinks in her hands. “Hey.” She said, plopping down beside her and holding a drink out to her. “How’s it goin’?”
Calypso had been semi content to just sit at a table, alone, and watch her siblings - as well as the other prom attendees - dance. Clearly, however, someone else had different plans.
A bit startled when she heard a female speak to her, Calypso looked up to see Eudora. Suddenly, the other girl was sitting right next to her, holding out a cup in her direction. Calypso gave the cup a questioning look, but took it…if only to seem a little polite. “Fine,” an awkward silence followed for a minute, or so, before Calypso spoke again, “Are you having fun?”
