Where's Richard?

"Where is Richard and why isn't he at the ball?" whispered the voluptuous virginous maiden in her scarlet velvet dress.

"I do not think that Richard even exists," stated a plump oversized matron in a too-tight yellow satin bustier.

"But Thomas speaks of him often.  Surely he can't be a figment of everyone's imagination."

"Yes, he can," said the matron.  "Don't you think it is strange that no one has ever met him or seen him before? We have only heard of him from Thomas."

"I don't care.  He has intrigued my imagination.  I have fire in my heart.  If he is anything like his brother Thomas,  I will be lost. "
