Next Time, Try Not to Set the Dancers on Fire

Isabeau turned fifteen at midnight, just as a spark lit her future husband on fire. The revelers surged away from the costumed dancers, who tore at their blazing coats.
“Guisay!” Isabeau shouted, unheard above the commotion. She locked eyes with Guisay. “I will have your privates for this,” she said.

This prompt was inspired by an event in 14th-century France, the Bal des Ardents or Ball of the Burning Men
