Ludwig descended the stairs. He was dressed like a courtier along with a mask, a tricorn hat and a powdered wig. He waited for his friend Feliciano at the foot of the stairs. They were going to Carnival and he could not wait to see what costume his friend was going to wear. The sound of footsteps drew his eye upwards.

There, at the top of the stairs, was a beautiful young woman. It took Ludwig several minutes as she descended the stairs to realize he was looking at Feliciano. Ludwig marveled at how well his gown fit him, not to mention how pretty his mask was. He longed to touch the auburn curls that were piled on top of his head.

“Ready to go?” Feliciano smiled.

Ludwig nodded. Holding out his arm, he smiled shyly when his friend took it. Together, they left Feliciano’s apartment and headed down the dock to the waiting gondola. Looking like a young couple in love, they boarded the boat. The gondolier pushed off and they slowly glided through the Venice canals on their way to the festivities. Night was beginning to fall, and the gondolier took one look at his passengers and started singing an old Italian love song, because he told them afterwards, that the night was young and that he had the feeling they would get engaged.

“I hope the song inspires you,” he said to Ludwig as he winked.

“Who knows?” Ludwig said softly as the gondolier sang another one for them.

Feliciano sang along as he leaned on his friend. Ludwig, feeling brave from the anonymity their costumes and the half-masks afforded, stole a kiss. Feliciano pulled back with a giggle, only to throw his arms around Ludwig, stealing one of his own. He longed to have his friend make love to him under the stars like he was the courtesan he was dressed as. He whispered as much to Ludwig, giggling in delight at the rosy hue that dusted his friend’s cheeks.

When they arrived at the Piazzetta di San Marco, they disembarked. They walked through the small square, smiling at their fellow revelers as the party atmosphere of Carnevale di Venezia was in full swing. Ludwig was thoroughly enjoying himself, just as Feliciano knew he would. Swept up into the crowd, they sang and danced like everyone else. As they waltzed, Ludwig could see the envious glances thrown their way by both men and women, and he could not help puffing out his chest a bit as Feliciano looked exceptionally beautiful dressed like a woman.

When they paused to get something to eat, Ludwig could not help stealing another kiss from his friend. Feliciano also could not help stealing one of his own and people would sigh and comment on how wonderful it was it to be young and in love. When they danced again under the stars, they felt like they were in their own little world, so they never noticed the party winding down, not the stars fading as night turned into day.

Hand in hand, Ludwig and Feliciano walked to the docks where a few gondolas waited, their gondoliers talking amongst themselves while they waited for a fare or two to take home. They climbed into the nearest boat, and set off for home. Seeing his passengers were young lovers, their gondolier sang the song, he told them, that his grandfather had sang to his grandmother and won her heart. Feliciano leaned on Ludwig, who moved so that he could put his arm around him. They drifted through the Venice canals, feeling as though they were in a fairytale.

All too soon, they found themselves back on the dock. Feliciano sang softly while Ludwig paid the gondolier. Taking Ludwig’s arm as they walked back to his apartment, he had the feeling his fairytale was just beginning, rather than ending. Entering the apartment, they took off their masks and he could see Ludwig felt the same way, especially when they kissed.
