The Red Death struck hard and fast. It killed many of Prince Prospero's people.
Everyone, get inside the palace!
Please wait for us!
The prince gathered one-thousand of his people and brought them to a gigantic palace.
Prince Prospero locked himself and everyone else in the palace to keep the Red Death away.
Do not fear, for we will definitely be safe in here.
This palace is amazing!
They partied the months away, using alcohol and good times to forget about the monstrosity that was killing everyone outside...
What a great party!
Ahhh!!! What a horrid costume!
Then, a... different... costumed figure appeared. They wore clothes and a mask that looked terrible, almost as if they had blood seeping from their pores -- almost as if they had the Red Death...
Prince Prospero, from the catwalk: SEIZE HIM!
But there was no costume, only the Red Death itself. It came to finish what they tried to escape from. It left no living thing in its wake, only death. Prince Prospero himself was not even spared. The very building that they called a safehaven became a deathtrap, causing them to reach their bitter end.
