In the final evening of the ordinary portion of Ashley Prue's life, she danced. The ballet studio was filled with hopefuls, all sixteen, all waiting their turn for their final test. Sixteen was when you were tested, if you had the moxy to try. If you passed, the studio would take you on as an apprentice and you had a shot at becoming a true ballerina. If you failed, then ballet became your hobby, something you messed with on Tuesday and Thursday nights and gave up before you graduated high school, like piano lessons.
