The vast auditorium was gloomy and tenebrous with the exception of a faint bluish light aimed at the stage.  The mysterious visitor walked into it.

I was the only one in the audience.  He looked right at me.

“Do you like puppets?” he asked.

“Yes,” I responded, quietly.

“Do you like magic?” he followed up quickly.

“Yes,” I said, even fainter this time.

There was a pause.  Then:

“Do you like balloons?”

“Yes.”  I knew he could hear my response but it was practically soundless.  He walked offstage.  The lights went up slightly.  The pageant was clearly over.
