"Fara and Saida. It's nice to meet you both." Milli responded.

Noir agreed as well. "Awww." Milli's ears slumped a little feeling sympathy for the woman not being able to experience many great events with her father "That's really too bad. But sounds like he still made the most of the time he could with you, so be happy for that a little right? I think..." She mused a small moment, parents were something harder to relate given she was orphaned but still she missed her beloved husband right now. "But on the bright side, Cinque being away means Noir and I get to spend time and hey I already made some new friends."

"The good ladies work wonders at festival time."

A young woman entered still fully dressed her glasses fogging over "Madam Officer! Oooh so glad I found you here."

"Oh, Mono. What on earth are you doing?"

"I'm very sorry, milady but I need to have a moment with you! Something urgent!"

"Just me?"

"Yes, milady!"

"Oh would you ladies excuse me a moment."

"Thank you, Milady. Ooh very begging your pardon ladies to interrupt your time here, wooooah" Poor Mono unable to see clearly through her fogged up spectacles took a tumble in the water.

"Are you okay?" Noir asked.

"I'm just fine....Wet but fine. Uuh once again please excuse me, many apologies." Noir and the young assistant went along outside.

"Hum, wonder what that's all about." Milli pondered "So, anyway, what else you ladies looking to do while here? Planning to island hop or going to stay mostly in one location?"

The Kitan

She smiled and blushed some more but thrilled. Their waitress set down their tea "Here you are, enjoy." She left without bothering them further. "Well how about a toast? I always wanted to do this...To a date!" She grinned tapping her tea cup against Ava's tea cup.

Aboard the Harira

Marcella pushed away a small tear. "Every letter she writes, I swear!" She giggled a little. "Her words hold such power." She also made a mental note to tell Noir next time she saw her to arrange a formal visit with the Sultanate but that could wait until after the festival and after her trip to Global Haraan.


Saida Adib.
Tsubaki, Animalpolis.

The scene played out before our eyes, me almost wanting to rise to help the woman with the fogged-up glasses, but Fara's hand on my thigh held me back.
We waved our goodbyes, though.
At Milli's question, Fara turned to her.
"Relaxing, mostly.", she said, "We plan to island-hop a bit, yes, but mostly, it's supposed to be a relaxation cruise." She exhaled. "You see, I'm just through a bit of a breakup and... let's say, that I am a bit known in Kyrenaia and... I want the yellow press a bit off my back."
Well, she was understating it like a champ!

Ava Shabh.
Kitan.

I smiled.
"To those beautiful eyes in front of me, shining like the most precious jewels, yet worth much, much more, much more then I can even imagine!", I replied to the toast, let our cups softly clink.
Was I flirting with her?
Absolutely! And you would not believe how good it felt!

Princess Aurelia bint-Damir.
Port Aurora, cabin of the Harira.

"She has a way with them.", I said and nodded, not having read along. The letter was to Marcella and if she wanted to share it with me, she would. I had a rough idea about what was in it, though. "She looks forward to giving the Rashiq a spin again - that's her favourite yacht. She is pretty nice."
I grinned.
"Of course, the most beautiful vessels in the world are the Harira and the Hoshi.", I amended and took a sip of tea.

Now, if you don't mind, we'll take our leave. Your daughter has recommended the bathhouse to us, and we would like to get there before it's too dark outside."



"Ah yes, you two can go and enjoy that. Everyone loves it, may be a bit crowded now but you'll have a nice time there. It was a pleasure to meet you ladies, thank you again. Enjoy the rest of the festival here, plenty to still see and enjoy."

"Awww that's too bad! I hope you'll be on the rebound soon enough, a pretty girl like you, you must have plenty of suitors male or female looking to take you out on a date! Well I hope you also find it relaxing here to keep your spirits high. Many do find the natural beauty here to clear their minds when they feel a bit cluttered."


Kitan

She smiled again her bright smile which also had a small fang-like-tooth protruding from her mouth, nothing to do with her animal traits only just how her teeth developed over the years. Honestly some found it cute. "Here here!" She responded giving her cup a clink and then sipping on the hot tea, it was good. "So, Ava. Of course the festival I assume but anything else in particular bring you to our little part of the world?"

Aboard the Harira

"Hehehe I do my best to keep The Hoshi true to it's namesake. Did I ever tell you that, Hoshi means star. I always felt it was a good name for a boat. Many a good ship around here are named Hoshi because well what else do we have but the stars to look to some times on the open seas of life. Well now we sailor girls have many tools at our disposal but still we look to the stars." she laid her hand on Aurelia's hand. BOth women of strong conviction they were made for each other.

"Oooh you wish to honor Yue do you? Interesting indeed." She set her broom aside "Why not come inside then we can talk it over." she urged him to follow her inside the shrine itself a small building not terribly unlike the Temple but only much smaller. More like a single chapel than a large place for people and clergy to gather. "What is your interest in The Divine One? Pardon my rush to judgement but you don't seem to be a native of the islands."

“It is what all Gods ask of us.” Sabin would smile. “Plus, it’s a time for us to mingle, to converse and make friends.” the Dancerian Prince would note the cloudy skies then smile warmly at the two. “And if you have no other plans or shelter, I would like to invite the two of you over for dinner. I am a stranger in this land, so I would like to know a little bit about this place.” he would seem to blush at the rather forward request, but he heard the Aschans were both hospitable and wear their hearts on their sleeves.

“I thank you for your hospitality.” the silver-haired wanderer would bow before crossing over the threshold. “No, I am from Danceria, I came last year and heard of the Divine One, and how he was forgotten yet somewhat remembered. In my homeland, there is a custom of “Bearing a God”, whereby if one takes some sand and soil from the land that one deity is from and mixes it with the soil of his homeland, the God is crossed over and shares the fate and spirit of both lands. So as to be worshipped by both Dancerians and Aschans…” the custom was very antique, as Danceria was indeed a large country with many cultures and interpretations of the Valar, as well as culture Heroes. The concept was very theological, but the man hoped the priestess would comprehend it. “So I have returned with a good deal of soil from Danceria to do the same here in Ascha, to build shrines so that way he along with the Good Ladies may be honoured, the law and local clergy permitting.” It was a succinct overview of his pilgrimage on the Isles.

"Actually, dinner does sound quite nice. I think the two of us could use something that doesn't cost a whole lot of money for a change. Wouldn't you say, so Kaori?"

"Mhm mhm." she nodded in agreement with her mother. "So consider us, your guests. Thank you."

Animalpolis

She listened quite intrigued about his pilgrimage, such a mysterious man he was but she couldn't refuse. "Yes. the Concept of Yue is truly a complicated topic among us. Canon has always been vague about his true fate. I for one believe he still walks among us, still divine but a lower plane than that of the Good Ladies. His sacrifice was a noble one if you were to ask my opinion. Love lost or not. Then sir, I would be honored to help you in anyway I can. As I am the Matron here of this shrine I'm obviously quite tied but perhaps a Priestess to help you in your journey. It sounds like you'll be in this for a long journey, perhaps great than the few days of our Holy Festival. And the laws of this land do permit the free practice of speech. I cannot say every village will be so eager but you'll get many to listen to you. And you'll get many who agree. So then, allow me to be your first, what is it you wish of me to do? How may I be of help in your journey?"

“Well, I’m currently staying at the Kitan…” Sabin began. “So, if you don’t mind a bit of Dancerian cooking, you can’t get much cheaper than free.” he would smile at the polite young girl. “Or perhaps something local? This is a festival after all, I’d hate to miss out on trying some new, good food…”

Aceus Elurion, King of Danceria

Misakichi Village Shrine, Animalopolis


The wanderer had heard the Mystery of Yue before during his previous visit to the Islands, yet having a Matron be so willing to help him was...well, somewhat expected of the Ahscan hospitality, but still humbling.

With a bow the pilgrim spoke. “I mean to head to Tsubaki, with respect to yourself, your shrine, and office, I would rather hear from a more...official Matron of the Islands. Indeed, this journey may take several days, as I mean to place a shrine on each island. Ambitious, yes, but something I hope would be both prudent and possible.” he would pause for a moment. “I thank you for your vote of confidence, and hope that others are as willing to help me as you say. But the path of the pilgrim is a solitary one. Companions of course are permitted, especially the local clergy would help out, but it would be most presumptuous to deprive this Festival of a set of hands for one man’s requests.” He would ponder for a moment, considering how best to present it. “If you know of someone who would be willing to aid me, please contact them on my behalf. If not, I must unfortunately take my leave with haste. It is a long journey to Tsubaki, and I’d like to make it with time to spare.” he would conclude with a thankful smile. “In the meantime, and if it is possible, pray for me and the journey, and pray for the healing that I hope could be done with the erecting of these shrines.”

"Yes, I have a lot suitors, some tall and large men of high renown, some men of lesser looks and renown and some quite cute, to be honest.", she said, "But women... well, I don't know about that. There are certainly admirers, but not suitors. I don't swing that way." She smiled at Milli. "But for now... I don't know. I don't want to throw myself blindly into the next fling."

"Actually, it's only the Festival.", I replied. The little fang was cute. "It reminds me a bit of the Harvest Festivals we celebrated back home, but yet it's completely different." I took a sip, nodded. "That's very good tea. Anyway... the Selkie celebrate a huge festival on the day of the Autumn Equinox, which is in two and a half weeks. Taranis' Feast, as they also call it.

I was at the middle-point between us.
"What will our future bring?", I whispered to her, into the cabin.

A drunken stumbling pedestrian was a perfect target for thieves which is one particular woman was looking to do when she saw him. "watch." She uttered to her companion. She intentionally bumped into him "Ooh I'm so sorry." she reached around to grab his wallet, obviously she had no idea he was just cleaned out but she was a pickpocket "I hadn't seen you. Do be careful now."


“Ah. Very well. I’ll do that”. Sho says. “It was a pleasure to meet you” he says, waving goodbye to his new acquaintances as he makes his way through the temple to find a priestess.




“No problem” Randy says, happy to know that he will make his wife ecstatic. He goes through town looking for Homer, as it was getting late and they would like to go back to the inn. He walks throughout town and eventually sees Homer, who was gotten more drunk in the past couple of hours, the alcohol sank in for him. This was also the time that Homer got pickpocketed, but Randy didn’t see that happening.

“Homer!” Randy shouts as Homer tries to maintain balance.

“Damn it” Randy says holding on to Homer. “All that drinking finally put you out. We should start heading back to the inn”. Homer just slurred his speech while they walked back.

"Good evening, folks." Their waitress greeted handing them glasses of fresh water. "I'm Shino who will be your server tonight. Have you made your decision?" She noted down the two salmon dishes and glasses of wine "Red or white?" She noted which they picked "We'll bring that out for you, if you need anything in the meantime, feel free to ask." She took the menus with a bow and left to put in their orders to the kitchen.


“Red please.” Jose confirmed as he handed the waitress back the menus, and she went on to do her business. A moment passed when Jose let out a regretful sigh “Damn.”

What?” Lourdes noticed, picking up her glass “You ok?

Yeah, it’s just I forgot to ask if they had appetizers.

Then just ask. That’s why she’s there.

True. But, I’m not that hungry. The fish will do.” he shrugged “You?

Oh no, I'm ok.

So, are you liking it?” Jose asked, placing his right elbow on the table and resting his head on his hand.

Lourdes shrugged “It’s ok so far. Although France or Spain or even Romania would’ve been fine. I’d say the worst part of traveling is dealing with people. Foreigners are so strange, unnaturally kind and hospitable. And pagan or gay or both or this or that. I’ve yet to meet a Christian foreigner.

Well, you mean strangers abroad. We’re foreigners right now.

Well, I mean foreign in relation to me. To us.

“Maybe next time I’ll take you wherever you want.”

Maybe? You mean definitely.

“Fine. Definitely.” Jose’s smile opened

(OOC: it might be nitpicky but Lourdes got the trout. So it’s not two salmons. Just letting you know)

"Ah yes, you two can go and enjoy that. Everyone loves it, may be a bit crowded now but you'll have a nice time there. It was a pleasure to meet you ladies, thank you again. Enjoy the rest of the festival here, plenty to still see and enjoy."


"Thank you very much Miss, replies Patricia before snapping her fingers, causing Gopnik to stand up and join her at her side. Enjoy the festival too, adds the brown haired woman before Catherine, Gopnik and her exit the hut and step outside.
-Phew, that went way better than expected, says Catherine as she wipes her forehead.
-You said it, answers Patricia. At least we know that we've settled things with the locals. All right, now, off to the bath!
-Aye!" finishes the blonde woman, while Gopnik barks in approval.

So, a few minutes later, after having walked back to their ATVs to check them, the two women and their canine companion arrive at the bathhouse.
"Good evening, says Patricia to the front desk attendant. Do you have a private room for two please?"

Meanwhile, Sakura approached from behind the two. "Well well, have you two learned some things?" she said with a smile before turning to face the maiden. "I meant to ask. What places in the area would you recommend visiting? I hope to have my daughters enjoy their time here."



"Plenty of great places to see, madam. Maybe I can point you to something specific to catch your interest. All the islands have something to offer and show. Here alone there's the Ducal palace, just from the outside it's pretty and large. The Temple has gardens here. Many shrines and villages are around all over the place."

"Hmm..." She pondered over the choices.

"The palace sounds interesting to see," Ren said. "Even if we probably wouldn't be allowed inside."

"Then that is what we shall see! But first, I think I would like to take a walk in the gardens," replied Sakura before turning back to the maiden. "Thank you."

"So which way are the gardens, ma'am?" Kiri asked. It seemed that the two younger girls were ready to explore.

In the Kitan
Mary watched as the woman went through the reservations, her hands gripping the holy ball in her hands as her saintly eyes focused onto the book, yet there was a hint of airiness in her stare that indicated that she wasn't even reading what was listed. Just staring forward, & it simply happened that the book was in her line of sight. She was broken out of her stupor when Natsume mentioned a free room. "I'll... take it," Mary said as she straightened herself out. "We planned to share anyway, wherever she is. She is always in pursuit of ice cream..." Meanwhile, in the restaurant, Eglantyne cocked her head up as the receptionist spoke, flipping her hair around & brushing it back. "Good morning, miss!" she greeted. "Well... I don't suppose I can take some mochi to-go instead of staying around? I'm just here for a quick ice cream break."

Ambitious, yes, but something I hope would be both prudent and possible.” he would pause for a moment. “I thank you for your vote of confidence, and hope that others are as willing to help me as you say. But the path of the pilgrim is a solitary one. Companions of course are permitted, especially the local clergy would help out, but it would be most presumptuous to deprive this Festival of a set of hands for one man’s requests.” He would ponder for a moment, considering how best to present it. “If you know of someone who would be willing to aid me, please contact them on my behalf. If not, I must unfortunately take my leave with haste. It is a long journey to Tsubaki, and I’d like to make it with time to spare.” he would conclude with a thankful smile. “In the meantime, and if it is possible, pray for me and the journey, and pray for the healing that I hope could be done with the erecting of these shrines.”




"You know, I think trying some different kinds of food would be great. What do you think, Kaori?"

She nodded in agreement and replied "Something different."

"Well that's settled. We'd be delighted to join you, sir."

"Mhm mhm." Kaori again echoed in agreement.





"Ah that's understandable. Being a small village shrine there is only so much we can do on such a quest. You'll be wanting to speak with the High Priestess then, the Matron at Tsubaki's Great temple. Sora, she can help set you on the right path then. I do admit we are busy and good hands are hard to spare not only for the festival but for the time ahead. In that case we will keep you in our prayers and hope for your success. May the Goddesses be with you."

"Yes, I have a lot suitors, some tall and large men of high renown, some men of lesser looks and renown and some quite cute, to be honest.", she said, "But women... well, I don't know about that. There are certainly admirers, but not suitors. I don't swing that way." She smiled at Milli. "But for now... I don't know. I don't want to throw myself blindly into the next fling."

"Actually, it's only the Festival.", I replied. The little fang was cute. "It reminds me a bit of the Harvest Festivals we celebrated back home, but yet it's completely different." I took a sip, nodded. "That's very good tea. Anyway... the Selkie celebrate a huge festival on the day of the Autumn Equinox, which is in two and a half weeks. Taranis' Feast, as they also call it. My people, the Spiorad Ainmhithe, celebrate our own Festival on the same day, the Marriage of Harac and Lida."

Princess Aurelia bint-Damir.
Port Aurora, cabin of the Harira.
"Oh, a little star carrying my beloved?", I cooed, blushing lightly at our hands touching. "It has something of a fairy tale..." I leaned a bit closer to her. "...yet, the stars also guided us - not to being star-crossed, but to being favoured by them."
I was at the middle-point between us.
"What will our future bring?", I whispered to her, into the cabin.


Tsubaki

"Of course, of course. You have to find the one who best suits you! I was already Premier when I met Cinque. I was afraid for a moment he might only want to be with me out of obligation, not out of love. But he loves me with all his heart as I do him! Well not sure if I made a good point but what I'm trying to get across is that well someone special is going to be there for you, someone who looks around fancy titles and that stuff." She smiled.

Kitan

"Sounds like a lovely and fun festival indeed. Oh that's right you mentioned you're a Spiorad Ainmhithe as you mentioned earlier. Well tell me about that if you would? I don't think I'm one like you asked but still maybe with some details I might understand better."

Harira.

"Well I don't mind the fairy tale sound or the star crossed if you get what I'm saying?" She leaned in close to Aurelia tapping her own forehead against hers pressing her nose against hers. Sort of a halfway kiss you could say. "When I was a little, walking a long the beach the morning after a big storm, in the sand I found part of a picture book. I don't know what the book was, not sure I ever found out but I remember this painting of a little boat floating on a sea of stars and stardust. And that, my love, is where I also got the name Hoshi from."

Cartoonia wrote:“Ah. Very well. I’ll do that”. Sho says. “It was a pleasure to meet you” he says, waving goodbye to his new acquaintances as he makes his way through the temple to find a priestess.



“No problem” Randy says, happy to know that he will make his wife ecstatic. He goes through town looking for Homer, as it was getting late and they would like to go back to the inn. He walks throughout town and eventually sees Homer, who was gotten more drunk in the past couple of hours, the alcohol sank in for him. This was also the time that Homer got pickpocketed, but Randy didn’t see that happening.

“Homer!” Randy shouts as Homer tries to maintain balance.

“Damn it” Randy says holding on to Homer. “All that drinking finally put you out. We should start heading back to the inn”. Homer just slurred his speech while they walked back.

“I certainly hope you didn’t blow your cash”.


A Priestess greeted Sho. "A good evening to you, needing a room for the evening? Please follow me if you wish." She lead him down the darkened corridors illuminated by a lamp in her hands she opened a large heavy wood door to show the small bedroom.

"Here you are."



Of course the pickpocket was long gone by now with Homer's empty wallet. "Ack, of course it's empty. The fool must have blown his money at the brothel." She tossed aside the empty wallet.

"Better luck next time, Saffron." Her partner said "Plenty more tourists where he came from who'll get wasted."

"Well if I see him again I should shank him for wasting my time."

"Come on, knifing a dumb drunken tourist is no fun. Let me buy you a drink now."

If the men returned to their inn for the evening their room would be ready.

Lux Pulchrae wrote:“Red please.” Jose confirmed as he handed the waitress back the menus, and she went on to do her business. A moment passed when Jose let out a regretful sigh “Damn.”

“What?” Lourdes noticed, picking up her glass “You ok?”

“Yeah, it’s just I forgot to ask if they had appetizers.”

“Then just ask. That’s why she’s there.”

“True. But, I’m not that hungry. The fish will do.” he shrugged “You?”

“Oh no, I'm ok.”

“So, are you liking it?” Jose asked, placing his right elbow on the table and resting his head on his hand.

Lourdes shrugged “It’s ok so far. Although France or Spain or even Romania would’ve been fine. I’d say the worst part of traveling is dealing with people. Foreigners are so strange, unnaturally kind and hospitable. And pagan or gay or both or this or that. I’ve yet to meet a Christian foreigner.”

“Well, you mean strangers abroad. We’re foreigners right now.”

“Well, I mean foreign in relation to me. To us.”

“Maybe next time I’ll take you wherever you want.”

“Maybe? You mean definitely.”

“Fine. Definitely.” Jose’s smile opened


Their waitress returned with their drink orders first "Red wine." A short time later returning with their dishes "Here you two are. Anything else I can get you?"

The Scarlet Eagle wrote:"Thank you very much Miss, replies Patricia before snapping her fingers, causing Gopnik to stand up and join her at her side. Enjoy the festival too, adds the brown haired woman before Catherine, Gopnik and her exit the hut and step outside.
-Phew, that went way better than expected, says Catherine as she wipes her forehead.
-You said it, answers Patricia. At least we know that we've settled things with the locals. All right, now, off to the bath!
-Aye!" finishes the blonde woman, while Gopnik barks in approval.

So, a few minutes later, after having walked back to their ATVs to check them, the two women and their canine companion arrive at the bathhouse.
"Good evening, says Patricia to the front desk attendant. Do you have a private room for two please?"


"Oh good evening to you as well." The attendant greeted them "Private, well no, I'm afraid we're not quite as big for that. But..." She felt a bit guilty for asking this but it was an unspoken secret. "For the right price, we can private off the open-air spring. It's actually not too busy right now as many are out enjoying the festival so it shouldn't be a problem for us. 50,000 Credits and it's yours for as long as you like."


Nu Alaska wrote:"Hmm..." She pondered over the choices.

"The palace sounds interesting to see," Ren said. "Even if we probably wouldn't be allowed inside."

"Then that is what we shall see! But first, I think I would like to take a walk in the gardens," replied Sakura before turning back to the maiden. "Thank you."

"So which way are the gardens, ma'am?" Kiri asked. It seemed that the two younger girls were ready to explore.



"Of course, the gardens are right through the doors there. Just walk straight on and you'll be out there. Welcome again." she bid them a farewell allowing them to walk out into the open garden which was filled with various kinds of native plants, trees, fresh fruits you could pluck from the trees if you desired. Kept up by all the Priestesses of the Temple.

Mary watched as the woman went through the reservations, her hands gripping the holy ball in her hands as her saintly eyes focused onto the book, yet there was a hint of airiness in her stare that indicated that she wasn't even reading what was listed. Just staring forward, & it simply happened that the book was in her line of sight. She was broken out of her stupor when Natsume mentioned a free room. "I'll... take it," Mary said as she straightened herself out. "We planned to share anyway, wherever she is. She is always in pursuit of ice cream..." Meanwhile, in the restaurant, Eglantyne cocked her head up as the receptionist spoke, flipping her hair around & brushing it back. "Good morning, miss!" she greeted. "Well... I don't suppose I can take some mochi to-go instead of staying around? I'm just here for a quick ice cream break."



"All right no problem." She noted down their information to get them in the room.

Next door Eglantyne would have little trouble getting what she needed. "Oh sure, I'll bring you some to go. Hang tight for just a moment." She left to the kitchen returning a short time later to give her some ice cream mochi. "Here you go, enjoy."

When the attendant speaks to them about the original option, both Imperial noblewomen look at each other with a small smirk.
"It's good to be rich, eh? asks Catherine in french.
-Yup, you said it girl, replies Patricia in the same language before opening her backpack and takingnout the aforementioned sum of money. There you go Miss, she says to the attendant as she switchs back to English. By the way, can my dog can come to the spring with us or are animals forbidden?"

AURORA
Back at the Kitan, Daniel, Patricia and Henry Vincao had enjoyed their bath to their hearts content, before going to their room and changing for the evening.
Henry was wearing a light green, long sleeved shirt, with beige linen pants and brown sandals. His mother was wearing a green skirt and a white blouse, with beige sandals, while his father was wearing a dark green polo shirt and blue jeans, with outdoor walking shoes.
As the three of them get out of their room, they make their way to the front desk once again.
"Good evening, asks the Ambassador with a smile. Do you know if there are any good things to do nearby for the festival, and is the rain going to become harder tonight?"

The waitress, Shono, had finally come by with the wine, they both promptly thanked her. After their glasses were poured they raised it, but didn't clang it since back where they were from, the coast, it was considered unseemly. Which was odd because some did it more up north, especially the king.

Taking the first sip, Jose thought it was...ok. Jose's attention was grabbed when he heard his name being called, turning to Lourdes "Yes? Is the wine okay?"

"Yes it's fine. But, uh, can we talk?" she sounded nervous and started looking down at her hands periodically, which gave him a slight idea of what it was she wanted to talk about.

"We can talk after we've eaten." he said calmly.

"Why, we have time before the food comes."

"Because, it is most likely not going to be over when the food comes, and I would like to eat in peace and quiet."

"But how do you know it wont be peaceful or quiet? I just want to talk."

"It won't be, because every time we talk about this you sound exactly the same: scared and nervous. And I don't want to be mad while I eat." Jose's patience was being tested.

"About what? It is just talking."

"You know what, so enough of playing innocent, please Lourdes. At least wait after we've eaten." he said, which was followed by a couple moments of silence.

"When can we get married?" was uttered suddenly.

A deep sigh was let out " I don't know. Simple answer. I don't know and this is certainly not the place to bring it up Lourdes."

"Then when and where? I've brought this up multiple times privately, and now here at this...this pagan island in the middle of nowhere waters. With no one to hear us but each other. Tell me."

"Because I'm not sure yet! Is that good enough? We've only been together since when? February? Too soon."

"What are you not sure about? About me? You're not sure about me?"

"I didn't say that. I didn't say that!" he took a second to calm himself "I am just uncertain if it is anytime soon."

"Why did you come to me all those months ago then? Just to have fun? How long do you plan to live this 'bachelor's' life Jose? It is not going to keep up forever. I cannot go from man to man trying to find someone and end up in my late thirties with only one child. And neither can you. You think I'm one of those easy whores you pick up? Some lord or count's little whore daughter you find in some party? You think I'm that easy?"

"Obviously not if we've been together for months! Easy women wouldn't even take a week."

They were cut off by the appearance of their meals, to which Lourdes avoided any looks. "Anything else I can get you?" the waitress asked.

"No thank you madam. I think for now we are fine." Jose answered with a closed smile.

"Is there a restroom I can use? Is it single person?" Lourdes asked calmly, seemingly normal.

Saida Adib.
Tsubaki, Animalpolis.

"I hope so...", I said and sighed, "So far, no luck. Except in one case, but... that's impossible politically."
She snorted in amusement.
I knew, who she meant. A gentle soul and poet, a man of the feather, a man of steel, a man, like there would be not many more. He could go out with whoever he wanted, everyone knew, that he only had eyes for her. That his feather only sang for her.
"Well, if it is not politics, men, in my experience, are out for two other things.", Fara added, glancing down at her upper body, then back at Milli. "I envy you a bit, Milli. Honestly."
And her wound wouldn't make it much easier in the future.

Ava Shabh.
Kitan.

I nodded.
"Well, I am a Spiorad Ainmhithe.", I told Ren, "We are nigh immortal beings, ancient as the mountains and young as the breeze. We... are revered among the Selkie, due to our age and the wisdom, that apparently comes with age." I shrugged with a small smile. "Our myths say, that two of our gods, Vaelic and Erbina, both deities of Wild Animals and Hunting, pitied two animals, which they had killed while on the hunt, deers, if the myths are going to be believed. Their pity made the two of them have mercy with them, taking their spirits and reshaping their bodies in their own image, thus creating the first Spiorad, who... were fruitful and multiplied."
I smiled at that, then added: "Soon, other Gods followed their example. Neto took the Scalefang, Togot the Scaled Bear, Besencla the Grey Wolf and so on." I smiled. "Our ranks grew and we praised the Gods for it, especially since we began to live together peacefully. With a few hickups, mind you, but mostly peacefully."
I smiled.
"I can only offer you myths as an answer as to what I am.", I added, "Reliable science has a hard time seeing any difference between me and a normal human except for... well..." I pointed at the ears on my head. "Functionally, I am a normal human... only that I grow a bit older then them."
'A bit' might be a bit of an understatement.

Princess Aurelia bint-Damir.
Port Aurora, cabin of the Harira.

I smiled as Marcella told me the story of the name, a lovely story.
For the Harira, it was far less lovely: Harira meant kitten and she was a Cat Yawl. Figure the rest.
I still smiled and complimented: "It's lovely."
I was about to invent a story about how I came up with the name for my little boat, when I was saved by the clock, or rather a furred beast, who trotted up and put a brush between the two of us.
I smiled widely, then looked up at Marcella: "Someone wants his brushies. Was he a good enough boy to get them?", I asked her for Aldhiyb to hear, who sat down on his haunches and swagged his tail. "And do you want to help me?"

“Oh, yes I would like a room please” Sho replied as he follows the priestess through the dim corridor, only lighted by the priestess’s lamp. They reach the room where Sho was going to stay for tonight. It was a smaller bedroom than his usual residence in the Supreme Leader’s estate, but it was a nice change from the elegance of his home.

“This is nice. Thank you” he answered.




They arrive back to the inn and when they arrived, their room was set for tonight. Their lamp filled in the light needed to go around the room to get ready for bed. Homer just laid down on the bed and started to doze off, this will most likely help him get out of his tipsy state. Randy just brushed his teeth and prepared himself for bed. Before he did that, he brought out his phone and portable batteries and begins to charge. His carrier provided enough data for him to transfer money. His bank, The Squirdoneon Bank, would provide money anywhere via carrier pigeon. With that in mind, he begins to transfer money out of his bank account and will wait for the money to be sent in tomorrow. Until then, he began to drift off into sleep. He blows out the lamp and both of them slept soundly, away from the modern bustle of Cartoonia and in peace and quite.

Sabin Castamir, Prince-Ducal of Figaro

Aurora Port


“You want something a lil’ spicy or a bit more savory…” Sabin would smile. “With luck, and if you’re willing to help, we might be able to get the ingredients for them!” It would allow Sabin to converse with the locals a bit more, and indeed get some fresh air before being cooped up within the Kitan during the rain.

Aceus Elurion, King of Danceria

Misakichi Village Shrine, Animalopolis


“Gods be with you as well, Matron.” the wanderer would bow, with a smile. “May you be able to enjoy the festivities as well!”

With that, the man set off once more, keeping a good pace until he would reach Tsubaki. Day was still overhead, but slightly looming clouds loomed overhead to the north where Aurora was. Fond memories of his previous arrival to the isles danced about, then descended into sorrow...for the hopeful yearning of love is now given away to agony not loud, but deep.

Hitching his rucksack, he made resolve to at least make it to Tsubaki before resting...not all had to be done in a day.

She took their payment and allowed them to go on out. A lovely evening, where Aurora was under a heavy rain, Animalpolis was crystal clear.

"Why did you come to me all those months ago then? Just to have fun? How long do you plan to live this 'bachelor's' life Jose? It is not going to keep up forever. I cannot go from man to man trying to find someone and end up in my late thirties with only one child. And neither can you. You think I'm one of those easy whores you pick up? Some lord or count's little whore daughter you find in some party? You think I'm that easy?"

"Obviously not if we've been together for months! Easy women wouldn't even take a week."

They were cut off by the appearance of their meals, to which Lourdes avoided any looks. "Anything else I can get you?" the waitress asked.

"No thank you madam. I think for now we are fine." Jose answered with a closed smile.

"Is there a restroom I can use? Is it single person?" Lourdes asked calmly, seemingly normal.



"We have a public restroom for use, sir. If you are needing a single use room, then please follow me and I'll guide you to one you can use."

"I hope so...", I said and sighed, "So far, no luck. Except in one case, but... that's impossible politically."
She snorted in amusement.
I knew, who she meant. A gentle soul and poet, a man of the feather, a man of steel, a man, like there would be not many more. He could go out with whoever he wanted, everyone knew, that he only had eyes for her. That his feather only sang for her.
"Well, if it is not politics, men, in my experience, are out for two other things.", Fara added, glancing down at her upper body, then back at Milli. "I envy you a bit, Milli. Honestly."
And her wound wouldn't make it much easier in the future.

Ava Shabh.
Kitan.
I nodded.
"Well, I am a Spiorad Ainmhithe.", I told Ren, "We are nigh immortal beings, ancient as the mountains and young as the breeze. We... are revered among the Selkie, due to our age and the wisdom, that apparently comes with age." I shrugged with a small smile. "Our myths say, that two of our gods, Vaelic and Erbina, both deities of Wild Animals and Hunting, pitied two animals, which they had killed while on the hunt, deers, if the myths are going to be believed. Their pity made the two of them have mercy with them, taking their spirits and reshaping their bodies in their own image, thus creating the first Spiorad, who... were fruitful and multiplied."
I smiled at that, then added: "Soon, other Gods followed their example. Neto took the Scalefang, Togot the Scaled Bear, Besencla the Grey Wolf and so on." I smiled. "Our ranks grew and we praised the Gods for it, especially since we began to live together peacefully. With a few hickups, mind you, but mostly peacefully."
I smiled.
"I can only offer you myths as an answer as to what I am.", I added, "Reliable science has a hard time seeing any difference between me and a normal human except for... well..." I pointed at the ears on my head. "Functionally, I am a normal human... only that I grow a bit older then them."
'A bit' might be a bit of an understatement.

Princess Aurelia bint-Damir.
Port Aurora, cabin of the Harira.
I smiled as Marcella told me the story of the name, a lovely story.
For the Harira, it was far less lovely: Harira meant kitten and she was a Cat Yawl. Figure the rest.
I still smiled and complimented: "It's lovely."
I was about to invent a story about how I came up with the name for my little boat, when I was saved by the clock, or rather a furred beast, who trotted up and put a brush between the two of us.
I smiled widely, then looked up at Marcella: "Someone wants his brushies. Was he a good enough boy to get them?", I asked her for Aldhiyb to hear, who sat down on his haunches and swagged his tail. "And do you want to help me?"



Tsubaki

Milli's face was red a bit from embarrassment, flattery, maybe remorse for hitting some sore spots for the lovely traveler. "I well..."

She couldn't muster the words and by the time she thought of maybe something, Noir returned. "Ah good to be back here again." Noir sighed sinking into the water

"Everything okay?"

"Just fine. It's all been taken care of."

"Well what happened? What was Mono so worked up over?"

"I'll tell you later."

"Sheesh I told her to relax and go enjoy the festival but she's still working."

Kitan

"Wow to have been around so long and experienced so much! Goodness me, in your eyes I must be but a mere infant even at 19! As someone who also hasn't left the islands at all. Ooh hey ya know..." She almost hated to bring this up now only for the sake of keeping Ava to herself this lovely evening "But the lady I work for here, I think she might be the same as you! I don't know for certain but based on what you've told me it does sound similar to her."

Aboard Harira

"I'd love to. Such a good boy deserves his brushies." she ruffled the fur of his head while Aurelia would grab the brush. "How do you keep his coat so lovely?"

Danceria wrote:“You want something a lil’ spicy or a bit more savory…” Sabin would smile. “With luck, and if you’re willing to help, we might be able to get the ingredients for them!” It would allow Sabin to converse with the locals a bit more, and indeed get some fresh air before being cooped up within the Kitan during the rain.

Aceus Elurion, King of Danceria

Misakichi Village Shrine, Animalopolis

“Gods be with you as well, Matron.” the wanderer would bow, with a smile. “May you be able to enjoy the festivities as well!”

With that, the man set off once more, keeping a good pace until he would reach Tsubaki. Day was still overhead, but slightly looming clouds loomed overhead to the north where Aurora was. Fond memories of his previous arrival to the isles danced about, then descended into sorrow...for the hopeful yearning of love is now given away to agony not loud, but deep.

Hitching his rucksack, he made resolve to at least make it to Tsubaki before resting...not all had to be done in a day.



"Spicy." Fumio responded simply for herself.

"Savory." Kaori insisted for herself.

"It should be a lovely evening together. Thank you, for your hospitality."


Meanwhile for Aceus it would be quite a trek to Tsubaki if he kept on foot but fortunate for him a military jeep passing by offered him a lift to wherever he was going. Pretty apparent he was a traveler and it wasn't unusual for sailors to land on all sides of the coastlines of the island. "Hop in we'll give you a lift!"

The drive shaved off more time from what would probably be a day or two to just a couple of hours. The bustling port was busy as it was in the morning when the Kyrenaian women arrived "Plenty of places to stay if you need one."





Nu Alaska wrote:"Whoa..." Kiri and Ren said in unison.

"This is so beautiful!" said Ren. She reached up to try to get a fruit from a tree but was too short, so Sakura had to get it for her.

"Here you go."

"They don't have anything like this in Alaska..." Kiri said. "I guess we're too far north."

They continued their walk through the garden.


An Attending Priestess took notice of the party wishing them a good day "Pretty isn't it? Did I hear right you come from the frozen north?"

Animalpolis

"Oh he can join you, that won't be a problem. Thank you for your patronage."

She took their payment and allowed them to go on out. A lovely evening, where Aurora was under a heavy rain, Animalpolis was crystal clear.

Aurora

"It looks like the rain will be on for much of the evening. If you're looking for something else good to do, might I suggest the theater. There's lots of short plays going on now. It's only a few doors down and no reservations needed."


ANIMALPOLIS
"Thank you Miss, replies Catherine before Patric and her, followed by Gopnik, pick up their bags and go to the open-air spring who has been privatized. There, they both undress, before getting into the water, while their canine companion lies on the side of the pool.
"Well, this day went smoother than expected in the end, says the brown-haired woan with a happy sigh.
-Yeah, replies her blonde friend before snuggling against her, and exchanging a kiss on the lips with her. except the small mishap with the Iwo Jima, we did what we had to do, and even got some nice souvenirs. I'm happy to be there with you Patricia, she adds before exchanging another kiss.
-Me too sweety, me too, answers the latter before both women turn to look at the setting sun. Isn't it romantic?
-It is indeed, replies the blonde woman as she rests her head on her lover's shoulder.

AURORA
"Okay then, thanks for the info, we'll go there, replies Daniel before taking out a light raincoat, just like his wife and son, and putting it on and stepping out in the rain.
After a few minutes, the family of three arrivs at the theater.
"Good evening, says Patricia with a smile, do you have seats for three please?"

Saida Adib.

Fara nodded, a soft smile on her lips.
"If something urgent came up, it might be better to take care of it.", I said, unaware of what the incident was. As Noir was the UIS' Minister of Foreign Affairs, I felt, that it had something to do with the outside world. I just hoped, that it didn't involve Kyrenaia. "It's a bit like with Handmaidens like me: If the Rose Garden needs water and the pipe suddenly broke again, you mobilize half of the Tabardariyya into carrying buckets."
Fara smiled and nodded, remembering the incident I was referring to.

Ava Shabh.
Kitan.

I was surprised, to say the least, at these news. Another Spiorad was maybe around these parts? Living here, owning this lovely inn? It was not hard to tell, that I was surprised, considering, that my mouth was open and gaping.
It took a moment for me to process all of that.
"...Ren...", I said, "...there are not many of us left. A few thousand, maybe..." I swallowed, trying not to get my hopes up. "A... Anyway... yes, your nineteen Springs would make you but a cub in my eyes. But there are some of us, who are around your age." I smiled, swallowed again. "Shall I show you an image?"
I would speak with Ren's boss, tomorrow - for now, however, Ren was the important part.

Princess Aurelia bint-Damir.
Port Aurora, cabin of the Harira.

I smiled.
"Love and care and regular brushing.", I said, "It's similar in that respect to human hair."
Considering, that my blonde locks went well past my hips and needed meticulous care, too, it was not surprising, that I showed the same to my oversized puppy.
With one brush now next to Marcella and another one, which I had grabbed, we could start: I sat down next to Aldhiyb and motioned for Marcella to sit down on his other side. He sat patiently, awaiting our work.
"Imagine you were brushing out Gisella's hair.", I advised Marcella and softly began to brush Aldhiyb, "Down and out, the direction it grows in."
As soon as the brush was full with excess hair, I cleaned it and threw them into the dustbin. He visibly loved the attention he was receiving.

Cartoonia wrote:“Oh, yes I would like a room please” Sho replied as he follows the priestess through the dim corridor, only lighted by the priestess’s lamp. They reach the room where Sho was going to stay for tonight. It was a smaller bedroom than his usual residence in the Supreme Leader’s estate, but it was a nice change from the elegance of his home.

“This is nice. Thank you” he answered.



They arrive back to the inn and when they arrived, their room was set for tonight. Their lamp filled in the light needed to go around the room to get ready for bed. Homer just laid down on the bed and started to doze off, this will most likely help him get out of his tipsy state. Randy just brushed his teeth and prepared himself for bed. Before he did that, he brought out his phone and portable batteries and begins to charge. His carrier provided enough data for him to transfer money. His bank, The Squirdoneon Bank, would provide money anywhere via carrier pigeon. With that in mind, he begins to transfer money out of his bank account and will wait for the money to be sent in tomorrow. Until then, he began to drift off into sleep. He blows out the lamp and both of them slept soundly, away from the modern bustle of Cartoonia and in peace and quite.


"You're welcome, sir. If you need anything please ask. Until then, have a pleasant evening." she left him.

The two women would be allowed to be together in peace and tranquility. The stars above brilliantly shining under the crescent moon, a perfect night.

Aurora

"Welcome to the Royal Theater. Please follow me." She lead them inside the theater, it was a flat room with an elevated stage that was lit up with lamps. Right now the curtain was close awaiting the next performance. "Here you are, enjoy the show. The next performance will begin in 10 minutes."

"Right you are, Fara." Noir agreed. "Rest assured, the situation was handled and I checked in to make sure of things. All is well now, back to enjoying the festival."

"Gee getting late too, didn't realize something would come up so late and at festival time. Everyone except Aux staff are off for the occasion and next few weeks. Well glad it sounds handled and okay now, Noir."

"Yup not to worry all is good again."

Milli was glad Noir was back maybe she'd keep the conversation on track.

"Now ladies, where were we before the hubub? Coral reefs right?"

The Kitan


"Hehe a cub is right, compared to you I guess. " She said with a giggled "Like my little brother and little sister are cubs. Yes, I'd like to see an image." She smiled. Clearly Ava was surprised and curious but she still seemed to keep her focus with her this evening. She could sympathize with Ava maybe wanting to connect with her kin but a little selfish side of her wanted to keep this beautiful lady to herself for the night at least. Light and Dark, it's what this festival is about and all possess those emotions.


Aboard the Harira

"Yeah, I can do that. I brush Gisella's hair all the time! She hasn't complained yet, so this should be easy." Taking the brush she gave nice even gentle strokes down his fur "You just let me know if I get rough." She instructed dear Aldhiyb.

"Yes please." she answered, about to get up when she was halted.

"Hey you're leaving already? Take a couple minutes then leave. You're not gonna leave me alone for prayer are you?" Jose questioned, taking a sip from his wine glass.

Lourdes thought about it for a second and sighed "Ok, I'll hold it." she answered, then turned to Shono "Maybe come back in ten minutes?"

After they were left alone, Jose led the prayer with a sign of the cross. Though unnecessary, out of habit, Lourdes pulled out her mantilla and wore it. Jose looked on for a moment then continued "Lord thank you for this food we are about to receive, and we thank the hands that have made it. We ask you to bless us during this vacation, that it may be safe and profit us spiritually. Amen." as he finished, they did the sign of the cross, then raised their glasses, "Salud." they toasted quickly.

Several minutes went by as they ate, "How's the food?" Jose asked.

"Pretty good. Yours?"

"Not bad." he said, sipping his glass.

"You know, I didn't actually have to go. I was just mad. But I'm ok now."

"I know Lourdes, that's why I had you stay. You left and your food would've gone cold, I was gonna eat whether you stayed or left." looking down at his plate scratching his head "If you want....we can talk about it later."

Her eyes glowed and a smile beamed on her face "Really?"

"Eh, AFTER we're done here and make it back to the inn. Let's just enjoy this right now. Ok?"

"Ok." a wide smile was practically stuck on Lourdes' face.

Tsubaki, Animalpolis.

"Indeed.", Fara said with a nod, glad, that Noir was back. "We were at Coral Reefs."
She smiled slightly.
"My personal favourite is the Amu Reef near Kyrkraut. That's a nation very much like the UIS, small and beautiful, but that's not the point. The point is a memory I made there: How Dad taught me how to swim.", I said with a smile, "We were out on our boat and I looked deep into the water, fascinated by what I saw, the many different fishies and colours and everything, but I was not a good swimmer back then - I was six, so..." She shrugged. "Anyway, Dad asked me, if I would like to meet them, I of course said yes. He knelt down, grabbed me by the hips and threw me overboard." By then I was giggling and Fara was holding back laughter, too. "Flight of my life, lemme tell ya!"

Ava Shabh.
Kitan.

I smiled - unaware of her thoughts. Although, if I would have, I would have agreed. I had a date with her, Ren, and was not interrogating her.
Still, I got out a small album, which I carried with me, a lot of photographs in there, one of them being of two young women. Both were... well equipped in the chest area, if you catch my drift, both wore school uniforms, a black sailor-style uniform with white markings and a white coat of arms on the chest, both had black lacquerware tubes in their hands.
One was the more confident one, a black-haired woman with warm, brown eyes, which had a certain bit of amusement written in them. The other looked just like her, same brown eyes and same black hair, but where her sister had her hair open, she had hers bound back. She was beautiful, too, but a serious beauty.
"Those are Elin and Branwen Blaidd.", I told Ren, "That's on their graduation day a few weeks back. Due to their father, they are my... grandcousins, I think. Cute girls - not as cute as you, though."
I threw Ren a wink.

Princess Aurelia bint-Damir.
Port Aurora, cabin of the Harira.

I smiled as Aldhiyb seemed to be in the Zen Place of deepest of pleasures, which could be attained by a Sand Wolf. Marcella's practice with Gisella's hair proved to be on-point.
I could get jealous, but the moments with Marcella were too precious for that...
At some point, I was approaching his hinds, I took a moment to look at her - Gods, she was beautiful, both on the outside and on the inside... I would be content, if the two of us could just spent the rest of the day snuggled up to each other.
Well, maybe three of us, depending on a certain someone...

In the quietness of the night, under the stars, hands start to wander on two female bodies, things are said, kisses are exchanged,.... and we fade to black to give the two Imperial Guards some intimacy, which they did not have in a long time.
In any case, Gopnik will stay on watch, warning them of anyone who would be wandering in this area.

AURORA
