The audience was waiting in anticipation for the magic show to begin. They started to applaud when the curtains opened and the magician and his two beautiful assistants came marching out onto the stage.
For more than an hour, the magician, with the aid of his two beautiful assistants, had performed one amazing feat of magic after the other, and the people in the audience were in awe of his talent.
Finally, the magician thanked the people for coming to his show, took a bow, and then, and with a wave of his baton, his two beautiful assistants suddenly started to literally float several feet above the stage and disappeared into the wings on either side.
Everyone in the theater began to hoot, holler, and clap. They all stood to give the magnificent magician a standing ovation and began shouting for more. But by that time, the magician and his two beautiful assistants had left the stage with a flourish in a fantastical disappearing act.
