Prince Andre and Natasha meet at the ball.
"I've been waiting a long time for you, " this frightened and happy girl seemed to say with her smile.
After they dance, the Prince says to himself:
"If she goes to her cousin first and then to another lady she'll be my wife."
And that's just what Natasha did.
