She waited, then approached the door with smooth sensuous grace. The seduction had begun.
A soft greeting escaped her lips as she entered. Hips swayed gently as she traversed the expanse of the hall to the common room, pausing along the way to work her magic on each person assembled there. Her persona was mesmerizing, her spell complete.

The transition was ominous, the spell broken. I saw the beast that lies deep within.
