It was a cool autumn day in rural Louisiana and the sun had already began to take its leave from the sky, giving way to a trail of vibrant colors behind it. Perfect weather for the gardeners as they had been working since dawn on preparing the place for tonight's big event at the Gaunt estate. The entrance gate had just opened, and a black 1962 sedan pulled in. He was in a bit of a hurry as he sped down the driveway, kicking up stones that nearly hit some of the tired yet humble gardeners nearby. They only shrugged it off and kept to their business with collecting yard trimmings and the sort.
The black sedan continued its way under the cover of live oaks that gave shade along the way for almost the entire stretch until ending once the driveway looped around with an elegant and tall water fountain that sat in the middle and was generations old. Once parked, the car door swung open, sending out a flurry of papers. While most landed, some were nearly swept away by the wind before caught by the driver who presented himself in a navy blue suit and tie topped with a skimmer hat. As he was busy collecting his goods, the mahogany double doors into the mansion opened and a group of waitstaff ran to assist.
"It is too late!" The man exclaimed as he gathered the papers and, with haste, placed them backed into a manila folder while making his way up the long set of stairs and into the mansion. "Why are we starting late? We should have been ready an hour ago!" He pressed on past the staff that stood in an awkward silence. One finally approached the man's side with a response. "M-M-Mr. Gaunt t-t-told us not to rush! To take our time as he said it would be a long night and didn't want us fatigued. We apologize, Mr. Montgomery." The young waiter nervously exclaimed whilst taking out a fidget spinner to help relax himself. Montgomery simply took it from the waiter's hand and tossed it into the nearby bushes.
"When Mr. Gaunt says to take your time, you should instead double your speed! He is near death and hasn't much longer if tonight's event goes awry. Everything must be perfect and nothing less! Now, get back to work as I myself am running a bit behind. I'll introduce myself once the clock strikes nine, understood? And can someone move my car?" Mr. Montgomery stormed off through the massive and bright lobby, heading up the central staircase and into a room on the second floor and vanished from there. The lobby itself was full of festive decorations for the fall season and a fitting and fanciful buffet that was placed along the white walls adorned with expensive paintings. The waitstaff inside and out all patiently awaited the guests that should be arriving at any minute.The gardeners had already retired for the night to rest as the lawn was clear and would act as the parking lot that only the valets would deal with.
It'll be a night to remember...[/Thick Southern Accent]
