Santa asked the band to please take the stage and invited everyone to dance. He reminded them to vote for their ‘King’ and ‘Queen’ and for their ‘Prince’ and ‘Princess’. As the elves danced, some would wander off to the voting box and make their votes.
Before long, the dancing came to an end. Santa reminded everyone this was their last chance to get their vote in. There was more eating and conversing while the band rested and everyone finished their votes.
Gilraen and her friends huddled together wondering who would be chosen for ‘Prince’ and ‘Princess’.
“I voted for you, Tarí,” Gilraen whispered in her friend’s ear.
“Oh, Gilraen, you shouldn’t have. I voted for Eámanë,” Tarí whispered back.
“Well, personally, I think we all look gorgeous,” said Lúthien
The four girls held hands as Santa took the stage again. Gilraen felt butterflies in her stomach.
