A Curious Beginning
A group of people find themselves on the lakefront near of a banquet table. Some come from far away, others simply enjoy the late afternoon.
There are also two wolf men who seem to have been friends since the very first moment. Between reciprocal curiosity and some past history, people begin to get confident with each other.
Someone is still distrustful to the two creatures, a lone wolf comes to visit, perhaps attracted by the scent of food.
Suddenly something in the sky attracts their attention, a multicolored sphere, similar to a star, with a blinding light, appears above the lake. What will it ever be?

All the people are looking at the bright star over the hills, it changes color and pulses of a vivid light, they ‘ve never seen something like that before.
Animals around the hills look agitated and nervous. One of the goats start to run around like crazy , making weird noises. Laura tries to quiet the goat.
The two wolfmen are agitated and people became suspicious of them. Fortunately all is resolved just with a verbal fight.
The tension in the air is palpable and when they started to think that the star was just a natural event, it fell down from the sky with a big noise.
People decide to go check the impact site, but instead of finding a crater, they find a man who says to be called Belthazar.
Belthazar turns out to be a gentleman even though some of them suspect that his kindness hides much more …

Balthezar is at the table, eating and speaking with Laura. He offers her a gift for the nice welcome, and looks very kind, also if he avoids to answer to personal questions.
Some Pixies seems to be attracted from his pouch and for distract them, Balthezar gives to them a shiny stone. Maraya joins Laura and suddenly changes opinion on Balthezar. Others find it really suspicious and start to wonder what is happening.
The two wolfmen, one fae and one elf hunter, try to find out the truth about Balthezar, but without too much success. He avoids to answer to direct questions or for them , he lies. Laura looks charmed from him.
One of the Pixie tries again to check Balthezar’s pouch, and he menaces her with a piece of iron with the excuse to warn her. Meanwhile Maraya tries to convince others about the genuine kindness of Balthezar, but others think that he is now also more suspicious. The elf Ithil goes to investigate.
Balthezar answers the questions from her and from the others, revealing the name of his original land. It’s almost day and the people decides to go to sleep. Balthezar asks to Laura a place where to rest and obtains it, with sarcastic comments from the others.
Tuesday, April 25th
The people wake up in a bright morning and enjoy the food already done on the table. They wonder why Balthezar is not around and about the meaning of the ring that Laura got like gift from him.
Max wakes up too and joins the others at the table, he starts to eat and check the ring too without to find anything of strange
Balthezar wakes up and joins the others at the table, but suddently reveals his true nature leaving others bewildered and unbelieving. Max tries to escape from Balthezar’s trap , but when he realized to be in, is already too much late.
Balthezar explains that he trapped them like in a crystal ball, and now they can’t escape. It’s also useless to try to fight him, his powers are too much strong and they are now his puppets.
Between disbelief and anger , Balthezar announces that Laura accepted his ring, so will be his bride in the hell, making clear that he is a demon.
Suddently Balthezar warns them to touch the glowing stones, or they will die ’cause the crystal ball eats their life essence. Max is weak due the hit with the magic crystal ball and joins the table while Balthezar disappear in a cloud of orange smoke, promising them to return soon.
Laura doesn’t believe in what is happening while others try to find a way to escape. Maybe Max has something in his diary about this demon, but is not sure at all.
