The first time she spotted them was at the library. It would have been easy to miss, bit Nita was in the right place at the right time... or they wanted her to see them. Who knows.

She saw one person, ordinary man, sitting there reading a book with the cover clearly visible. A book called "The Theory of Justice" with a bookmark hanging over the top with a black tassel.

There would have been no reason to watch him, but right at that moment a woman walked past him. It seemed like she was adjusting her bag, but Nita saw the envelope pass to the man as the woman brushed by. The man had known to take it and the woman continued on as though nothing happened.

The woman had a very small butterfly tattoo on her right hand between her thumb and her pointer finger. Not some girly frilly thing, but an accurate silhouette.

The envelope disappeared. And the man continued reading.

Weird, she thought. It was probably drugs or something. Super secret answers to college exams.

Nita stuck her nose in an accounting book, but of course, her mind wandered. Maybe it was a DNA test for Maury Povich. Or an application for clown school... Or the directions on how to make a pipe bomb or bug a phone.

Or... crap. Now it was eating at her. What was in the envelope!?

Curiosity getting the better of her, she did what most people wouldn't dare to do. She walked right up to the man and smiled, bending down. "With a near seamless pass of like that, now I have to know what's in that envelope. Have you just been served a subpoena? Divorce papers? I have to know, because that... that was... different."

Subtle like a rock through a window.

The man was startled for a moment, then a smooth smile slipped onto his face and he tapped his nose. "If I tell ya, I'll have to kill ya." He joked.

He reached in his pocket and pulled out a card. Cut into it was the same butterfly symbol that was on the woman's hand who passed the envelope. There was nothing else on the card. It was just smooth black mat with the butterfly hole in the middle.

"But if you're still interested... you have a good eye." He said appraising her.

"Right, haha," she grinned shaking her head. "Ooh, it looks like an invitation. Fancy soiree?"

"It's an invitation of sorts. But you need to find the party. I hope I see you again." He stood and removed the black tassle bookmark and left the book cover up. He did the strangest thing and straightened it so it was even with the table

Then he turned to leave. .

"Yeah, me, too." She smiled at him as he turned to leave, standing on the balls of her feet. She was waiting for him to leave so she could go swipe that book and look through it.

She wanted to find a party...

He left and the book was waiting there for her like it was on a silver platter.

On the front was a picture of a woman holding scales. Inside it was a bunch of theory on the failings of the US justice system and a page had been dog earred. There was nothing on the page except a big courthouse and scrawled in black pen on a side entrance was a butterfly. In the subtext under the picture the word "twelve" had been circled.

"12?" She asked herself. That had to be a time. So... the courthouse at midnight? Who partied at noon, anyway. She closed the book and went to check it out, just in case she got to the courthouse later and happened to be wrong.

It turned out it wasn't even a library book and so it was hers to keep it would seem. Would she go and test out her theory?

HELL'S YES!

Score, free book... She was trying to expand her own library, anyway. She stopped for coffee on her way to the courthouse, claiming a shady spot to see who would enter the super secret party via the super secret butterfly side entrance. She felt all James Bond.

The courthouse looked nothing like the one in the book, but by God it totally had a secret butterfly side entrance. The butterfly was scratched into the doorknob. No one entered or left all day but as soon as it hit the witching hour, the first person arrived.

He was normal looking. Maybe in his mid 40s, rail thin and bookish. He carried a large heavy looking backpack. He was loosening his collar as he walked up to the side entrance. He knocked and pulled down his collar exposing his collarbone and then the door opened and he disappeared inside.

Weird, so weird...

She made a face, frowning, not knowing if there was a medal or necklace or a tattoo that was the secret password in order to get in. Maybe she could see the next person? She attempted to change her angle, still in shadow.

Next was the woman she saw from earlier. The woman looked over and stared directly at Nita and smiled, then showed the eyes in the slate her butterfly tattoo and with a final glance back at Nita, entered through the butterfly door.

Oh, crap... Oh well, she knew she wasn't really that good at hiding. She took the book in her hand, tapping her fingers on it a little as she chewed her cheek. Maybe she could get in with that?

One way to find out. She strode up to the door and knocked.

The light in the eyehole went dark as someone looked through the hole.

She was holding up the page in the book... You know, just in case. Though she was afraid to speak, since no one else did.

"That's not an invitation." A raspy voice on the other side of the door said.

Bah, humbug... Party pooper...

"Well, then how do I get one? I saw one today, it was a pretty piece of paper with a butterfly... I want one."

Famous last words, more than likely.

She had been given a paper with the butterfly cut out of it she suddenly remembered. The thick black one which the man had said was an invitation to the party.

Oh yeah! She dug around in her pocket and produced it, a little crumpled, but no less an invitation. "This one!! Is this it?"

The man didn't answer. Light shone through the eyehole again and then the sound of metal on metal as some kind of latch was undone. Then the door opened. The man was shortish, dark haired and weathered skin. Grim was the word for him. He nodded to her and closed the door behind her.

"Welcome. Down that way." He pointed down the hall. "Down the stairs... good luck."

She peeked down the hall, eyebrow raised. But she couldn't turn back now, could she? It would have been too much of a waste... And what if this was some new secret society? Oh, boy, she'd get the jump on it... Maybe even expose it for what it really was! Ha!

Oh... yeah... Grim dude.

"Thanks," she gave him a smile. "But why do I need luck?"

He smiled a wicked smile.

"You don't know what you got yourself into now do ya lass?" He laughed to himself. "Just hope they let ya keep your important memories if you fail." He winked. "Now run along, they'll be starting soon."

She chuckled uncomfortably. "What? You can't take someone's memories."

He laughed and waved her away down the hall.
