Cinders May Ball

by 3arn0wl

Earlier in the week, hyperbolic paraboloids were erected on the immaculately manicured lawns of Chorley Uni for the May Ball, and last night revellers arrived, arrayed in their finery,  feasted,  and then kicked off their shoes to dance.

Undergraduate Pixie Smith effervesced, “The band were brilliant, the fireworks were fantastic, and of course, you can’t beat a glass of the Flying Pig’s sparkling perry, Maison.”

But disaster struck at midnight, as an errant firework hit the marquee and fire engulfed the big top.

Thankfully there were no fatalities, and the two sisters who underwent surgery, had planned to do so before the event – for cosmetic reasons.

“It’s a miracle that no one was hurt.” Chorley University‘s Vice-Chancellor said, “It went from a fun party to Dante’s Inferno in no time.”

Fireman Harry Prince is currently touring the area, to redistribute several pairs of shoes.
