"Ah, Sho, Shoko! Isn't that funny!" She giggled "It's great to meet you as well. Where are you from, Sho? Oh may I call you Sho?"


“That sounds good” Randy says. Looking out to the sea, he too is in awe of the beauty of the ocean.

“You know, I never really knew what true beauty really looks like until I got here”.




“Yeah it’s funny. Sho is fine” he responded. “I’m from a more hectic and busy country. I don’t know if you heard of it. It’s a nation called Cartoonia”.

"Good evening." She greeted him when he greeted her and when Lourdes asked about the bottle, "Yes ma'am your bottle did arrive, and I put it in your room. The delivery girl said it was something of a surprise so I figured that was the best place. Have a lovely evening."


"Oh thank you!" she said excitedly, kissing the receptionist lightly on the cheek. Then slightly bowing her head.

Coming up behind her, Jose noticed the interaction and spoke up "Wow, quite a greeting."

She smiled and turned around "Uh yes, she got me an extra blanket."

"That was some reaction over a blanket."

"Well, I don't like being cold."

Nodding, Jose then looked to the receptionist "Have a goodnight miss." then walking with Lourdes to their rooms.

"You know, I asked earlier about any locations and I was told there was a convent we could visit. Maybe tomorrow before the beach we could go. If the weather allows the beach of course."

"Mhm." Jose responded bluntly. Unexpectedly, instead of leaving her to her room, Jose led them both to his room, and gained a firm grip on Lourdes' forearm, shoving her into the room.

"Jose?" she said in a confused state, turning around she was met with a smack to the cheek. Nothing that knocked her down but she definitely felt it. "JOSE!"

"Be quiet!"

Regaining her composure "Jos-"

"I said quiet!"

A moment went by and they were just standing there, Lourdes with a red cheek. "Why?"

"You must be crazy if you think you can put on such an embarrassing show like that in public! Yelling at me in the middle of a restaurant like we were the same. We are not."

"Jose I'm sorry I just got so emotional. You-"

"Well keep your emotions to yourself or tell me in private or not at all." taking a deep breath, he seemingly calmed down, taking his jacket off and his button shirt. "What kind of man will they think I am back home if I have my woman yelling at me like that. Now that you know what happens, I suggest you think before you speak to me like that again. Got it?"

Ever the Lux Pulchraean woman, she nodded in agreement with a tear down her warm cheek. Hesitating for a moment she finally responded "I'm...I'm going to my room."

Opening the door Jose gestured "By all means, go. I'll be there in a couple minutes to talk."

Walking past him and into her room, Lourdes' rather peculiar mind caused her to smile and think to herself, falling back on her bed "He said 'My woman.'! It definitely meant something!" After about 20 minutes, while she was praying, a knock was heard. "Come in!" she answered. It was Jose.

"I just came by to say goodnight. What time are we going to this convent you mentioned?"

Sitting up on the bed, she shrugged "I guess I would have to call in the morning. We can wake up around seven if you want. Get a shower and then go."

"Sounds fine by me." he said, giving her a kiss on the top of her head. "Goodnight."


Hoshi Inn. 7:00am
Morning came, and almost on the dot, Lourdes woke up saying a quick prayer. Putting on a pair of slippers and wearing a solid blue nightgown she went out to the hall to the reception desk, greeting the receptionist once again. "Good morning! Do you have a telephone I can borrow? I would like to call that convent you mentioned. Unless of course you know their hours."

And that someone is us, she adds as she points to her and Catherine. If the ladies like you and you do a good job, there's no need for us to change the current organization of your business. And besides, you would not have to worry anymore about everyday costs, we would cover everything. Our families pockets are deep enough for that.
-And it's not like a small brothel in an exotic country is going to cost much in everyday's life, continues Catherine as she has finished sampling the last girl. Admit it Patty, you want to buy it partly because you want to see how the others back home will react, says the blonde gynecologist with a smirk.
-I admit, replies Patricia with a small chuckle. I wonder what they'll think when we will tell them we have invested into the Island's economy. So, Miss Riri, what would be your price? asks the brown-haired woman to the manager as she turns back to Riri with a serious face.

Meanwhile, Gopnik is enjoying the petting, letting out happy sighs as Yuuki pets him, especially when he is scratched behind the ears.



"Well then...Wonderful! Well I tell you what, give me some time to get all the financial documents in order and we can talk business. Honestly it should be worth your time, condition of the building as a whole is in good condition. If I had to shotgun a price off the top of my head it might be something in the range of 100 Million Credits. Again that's a quick estimate."

"Hehe you're cute." Yuuki giggled.

"I'm glad you folks find it lovely here. All apart of our home island pride is keeping it clean and nice. We work hard at that much."




"Cartoonia, Cartoonia...." She mused.... "Oh I think I did read something in the paper. About an election going on and someone from our Government giving a personal endorsement to a candidate. To be honest that's all I remember, I don't follow politics much."

With the last of their guests in for the nigh she could shut the doors and lock up and go to bed herself until bright and early. With the morning sun peaking out from behind the few lingering clouds and the drops of rain that fell last night rolling off the leaves of trees it was showing to be a good day indeed.

The young desk receptionist again at her post first thing in the morning approached asked for a phone but she could easily tell them, "I do but I'm pretty sure they don't have a phone. That said, I can tell you, they're always receiving of visitors. Simply walk up and ring the bell and one of the Sisters or Priests should answer."

"Okay, well thank you." she said, heading back to her room when she bumped into Jose who seemed to already be dressed "Aren't you going to shower first?"

"I did." answering while buttoning up a dark blue shirt and wearing grey pants "Went to the Kitan early."

"And you didn't wake me?"

"You wanted to wake up a seven. I woke up a bit earlier. Didn't want to bother you."

"Ugh, whatever." looking down at her own attire "I'm going to look like a foolette walking to that inn in my gown and slippers."

"No more than the people here. They live in gowns. At least you're not one to wear see through gowns. Here.." going back into his room, he got out a grey woolen overcoat that was big enough to almost reach Lourdes' ankles "If it makes you that awkward. I need to go back to that inn anyways. I forgot to ask if they had any rooms."

"It has not been a day. I doubt anyone checked out. Also why did you bring this? It's tropical climate, why bring an overcoat?"

"You can say thank you or I can take it back."

"Thank you for the coat." she smiled. Going to her room she got a small backpack with what she would wear for the day and holding a small travel bathroom kit. "Well, you can get breakfast while I shower or whatever. I'm not that hungry."

The two waved goodbye to Sakura for the day and headed for the Kitan. Once there they approached the front desk "Good morning, do you have a bath open? Or a shower preferably?" Lourdes questioned.

"Deal, replies Patricia with a smile to Riri. Rake your time to look for the proper documents and the exact sum, and tell us later. For the payment, do you prefer a check, or in cash? We can also provide gold and silver ingots.
-Say, I've finished with all your employees MissRiri, continues Catherine. Still upfor the examination?"

Gopnik, after a good petting, lifts his head back up to Yuuki, and mitions with his head to follow him once she'll have finished her tea.

AHSCA wrote:"The first of many to come! So amazing and exciting! Already we had our first night, our first storm, our first morning sunshine in our little hut here! First of many in our little place we call home first of many to come. Though now my mind is firmly on our double date tonight! That's very exciting to get to spend it with another couple! Like couples do! Hehehe I'm really thrilled! Oooh it's gonna be great! Kumiko is really sweet, her girlfriend is nice but seems more quiet and reflective compared to Kumiko. But i'm sure we'll all get along great."




"That is true. The was has left many frightened, I think there might also be those who settled on Animalpolis as refuge. It's true the modern world can be a bad place. I saw the advent of industrialization, when factories and the like started to spring up. Not the most pleasant. But I know things have changed based on talking to the many guests who have come through here. I suspect AHSCA will find it's harmony, tradition and moving forward. There's a charm about this place I never want to see go away no matter what changes. And well if my dear Employee Satou can find a girl who feels the same, then I imagine it's possible." She took her first bites and nodded at the compliments "I shall forward your compliments to her, she'll be pleased to hear that."

"Then guess it all made it worth it if so. I guess there will be more things to come to call our first... Such as our first night or morning together as an married couple, our first honeymoon..." There were many things foward for this couple and for both it seemed they were ready to have them.

And as for the date, well that was to be their first double date and one with friends so... Yeah. This was the day of many first things to come.

"Yeah. I hope she does open up if so for our double date I was thinking in going in to have dinner at the Kitan for them walk around the beach at night or go to the hot springs and relax, you know so we could enjoy." She explained as she looked around...

"Could I ask where I could take a bath here??"




"I've heard stories of it and surely what happened there made quite the impact for this to happen and for see how things went on the aftermath. That combined with the stories of the modern world being a bad place to live and be, which were right in a way, mainly because some of those images could be related to the nation that invaded islands being like if the worst face of the industrial revolution was still going there it could explain things." Her Majesty explained, to be honest that was pretty complicated and clearly The War was brutal enough for them to have such wiew about the modern world... And of course the tradition meant that such wiew was to be present no matter what.

But of course there was hope that AHSCA would modernize slowly but steady alongside maintaining their traditions, that balance was achievable to find.

"Of course it is. That charm to be kept all it has to be done is to keep that balance and maintain it for both sides to be happy and to not take away what makes AHSCA stand out." She smiled and grinned as she kept eating, she was glad of such food and found it delicious clearly.

"Well I can be sure she recives many of those compliments very often with how good this is." She grinned.

Ren at the desk attended to the sir and madam. "Let's see....Why yes we do have some openings for both. If you'd like a shower then I can show you where we have those as well. Still welcome to soak afterword. If you just want to come with me."

she lead them down the halls to the shower stalls. Opening the door there was a private stall enclosed in a small but roomy enough. "Sir on the left, madam here on the right. Just pull the chain and hot water will flow down, pull again when you're finished."

But if you want to do it here I can bring in the wash tub. Given I work at the Kitan I usually wash up there so I rarely use it I keep it stored outside for the room."




"Hehe i'm quite sure slowly but surely AHSCA will find its ways. I mean we did adopt inoculation pretty quickly, some islanders even have mobiles, not many but some do. I doubt we'll become the most advance society but I think we'll make due. Honestly living here so long, I would almost forget the world industrialized around us. I've learned a lot from visitors such as yourself. The prettier the better."

"Hehe I can understand that. I'm not versed much in politics either, I vote when we have the odd election which isn't often. I read the paper and that but really I guess I just go with the tied. Don't think to hard about this. Makes me sound a bit ignorant I know."

Meanwhile, Yuuki has apparently not understood that Gopnik wanted her to follow him, so he barks to get her attention and motions with his head again.

Meanwhile, Yuuki has apparently not understood that Gopnik wanted her to follow him, so he barks to get her attention and motions with his head again.


"All right, sounds like a fair exchange. You got yourselves a deal." She nodded then proceeded to follow their instructions for an exam.

Yuuki meanwhile had relaxed finished up her tea, she was ready to go off somewhere but it seemed the companion, Gopnik wanted her to follow him. "Hey, what is it fellow? Wanna go somewhere?" She got to her feet and decided to proceed with him. Where would this take her, she didn't know.




Mervay wrote:"Yeah, we have to talk with them about it first before we make any of those things so... Yeah. We have to talk with them. And no, no need of go to The Kitan, if you could bring me the wash tub I would be glad, I mean so I get used to that so we don't have to be going to The Kitan."

Many places around the world did modernize alongside keeping their costumes and traditions and culture. That's all I can hope of this place, to take the best of both worlds."



"Sure!" Satou agreed with a smile. Stepping up she stepped outside for a moment untying a rather large wooden tub she had stored on the side of the house. Rolling it inside she got it set up getting hot water in it. "Honestly I don't use it a lot. When I want to take a bath I usually just do it while I'm at the Kitan after a day's work. But on times when I'm not working I still go there. But that said, when it's particularly stormy and rather not go outside. I do like it. Also good for when waiting out a hurricane." she helped Tess along. "I do have to keep it outside though, otherwise it takes up a lot of room. I suppose when I get more saved up I can build onto the hut but for now it's what I do."




"Well if that's the way it goes, it's the way it goes. I'll be looking forward to seeing where things go, but honestly if nothing were to change I don't think I'd be disappointed either. But I'll go with the tide I suppose. In and out. Important thing is I always have a place for young ladies I can help out like the Kitan. I wandered the lands for centuries since being forced to flee my home centuries back, always wondering what I was meant. I've been seen as a Demigod, an omen of good or bad and a faithful companion and worker but when I set up the Kitan I realized that was my calling, My good friend."

AHSCA wrote:Tabardariyya might be hard press to find a good inn this late but the quaint Hoshi Inn as a few had. Given the Cartoonia guests had essentially left for Cartoonia it left a decent vacancy. The little reception girl ready to turn in for the night almost once the last of her duties were finished. She walked in carrying a large stack of freshly cleaned blankets "Oooh good evening, be with you in a moment!" She set them down and hopped up on her stool to reach the podium. "Ah good evening sir, needing a room? We have one left, so you're just in time!"




"Rules, very simple. Only ask for your respect. We understand and value what beliefs you have and do not wish to proselytize. I explain matters of the Faith as they are and nothing more. If there are times for quiet reverence I shall let you know but for the most part given it is festival time don't be afraid to be festive! Why don't I start with a bit of history here, this temple is not the original, the original which was constructed centuries ago was destroyed during the great war. As it also became the tomb of the many who defended it, we felt it should remain a resting place to allow the spirits to roam free. Now this grotto here, was a refuge for many during that black time. So it felt suitable to now designate this the new island temple. Come." she lead them further along into the main chamber which had the statues of the two Goddesses in their full glory. "Goddess of White on the Left and Goddess of Black on Right."





"yeah a dip would be great too. With or without swimwear." She smiled and giggled a little bit.




"Yes." She whispered again back it could go on all night but pressing her two fingers gently against Aurelia's lips to hush her now after one last kiss she was given by her, "Now sleep. After that you need rest to recharge. And tomorrow will be a bright new sunny day for us."


Murad Bey.
Port Aurora, Aurora.

The first house I tried had been the Hoshi Inn, which seemed almost vacated with how quiet it was. I saw an employee, a short girl carrying a large stacks of blankets, she saw me, too, told me, that she would be with me in a moment, and when she was there, I was somewhere between cooing in delight and laughing.
She had hopped onto a stool to reach the podium.
It was, let's be honest here, cute!
What she told me made me nod slightly. "Good evening - I would be happy to take that one, if you don't mind, young lady.", I said with a small, polite bow. Then, my hand went into my pocket, taking out my wallet and the ID-card within. "I would like to take that room for ten days, please."

Saida Adib.
Tsubaki, Animalpolis.

We nodded at the explanation of the rules, so basically behave like in a temple back home: Be respectful, show reverence when reverence was due, and be aware of where you are.
The little history lesson proved very interesting, too, even if a bit dark. Then again, there were enough temples in Kyrenaia and elsewhere, where similar stories were told.
But as we entered the grotto with the statues of the Goddesses in their full glory, we bowed our heads. The statues themselves were beautifully crafted, as if by divine hand themselves.
It was a gesture of respect towards them and the ones, who's final resting place this was. And it felt, as if it was lacking.

Ava Shabh.
Kitan.

I smiled.
"Swimwear optional?", I asked, "Count me in!" I then pondered for a moment. "Though I do have a nice swimsuit..."

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

I nodded.
Marcella was right, tomorrow would be an awesome day and I would need all my strength for tomorrow. And so would Marcella, I would bet!
I closed my eyes and I exhaled, relaxed...

Aldhiyb.
Port Aurora, cabin of the Harira.

I laid in my corner, watching the two with a small smile on my canine muzzle.
I loved my mistress.
I still do.
I will do so until my last breath.
She was not an easy girl to be the protector, to be the canine of. She was a Princess, she was a Selkie, she was a girl, who had fallen to vices and who competed, she was damaged, she was a girl, who was tense and who was under pressure... and she frequently had nightly terrors.
She had told me, what she feared, experienced in these nights - I will not tell you. Suffice to say, that I listened and that I would never tell anyone.
But... she had found arms, which loved her, which held her close and warm in a way, that I never could. Which allowed her to heal, to relax, to not be a Princess, not a Selkie, but simply... Aurelia.
I was happy for her. I made myself comfortable, settling my head on my forepaws, watching the two in the small bed of the kitten, which carried my mistress over the very oceans to her beloved.
And I knew, that I would protect that beloved, too.
I drifted to sleep myself soon afterwards.

"Very good, ten-days!" She took his ID card noting him down in the ledger. "Welcome to the islands, sir. Now allow me to show you to your room." She grabbed the still burning bright oil lantern from the podium, hopping down from her little stool. tough being young and being short but she managed things just fine. A woman poked her head in, "Sakura, you still up?" she asked her

"Yes, I was just about to head to bed but have one more guest who just entered. I got him booked now going to show him to his room."

"All right but head to bed when you get him settled in and I'll lock up."

"Kay mama! Please follow me, sir." She took him down the hall to the second to last door on the left. The last being occupied by the guests from Lux. Strange people. "Here we are." She opened up the door leading him in. Setting the lamp onto the desk. "As you heard, I'm about to turn in myself for the night but if there's something else you need I can get it for you before then. Until then, this will be your room so please enjoy your stay with us."




"The base of the statues is a place many of us Maidens and those who just come to worship is a popular spot of prayer and contemplation. Although those who seek a bit more solace often do go to one of our meditation chambers. For the most part this is a public convene. You see also that hole up there, a natural cut of the cave, the rain drips down onto these statues. We thought to move them at first but honestly it feels so beautiful and enchanting to watch the water run off of them we can't. We can't imagine the Goddesses would mind, especially the very Goddess of rain and storm herself. Might think me as a bit of crazy when I tell you this. But before I became a Priestess I was a merchant sailor. During a frightful storm I saw the Black Lady herself imposing her mighty wrath upon our little vessel. Like her firsts pounding on the seas to create the mighty waves I thought would surely swallow us whole. I thought she had come to claim our souls but it seemed the Lady of White had other plans and decided to preserve us. After that I decided to dedicate myself to the Faith and became a Priestess. I started off as a Sea Clergy, a Priestess aboard ships going abroad. The Current High Priestess of this Temple, our Matron was my Mentor then and I came here at her behest."




"Hehe I'm good with either option. I have a pretty cute one myself I like to wear, sometimes for the tourist's benefit. But whichever we like I'll go with. Kind of an odd paradox, we islanders have never really been very modest, frankly some feel clothing is affront to our Goddesses but at the same time we also make some really cute clothing like kimonos and like swimwear."




Marcella had Aurelia in her warm embrace and not far off was the trusted Aldhiyb. Marcella hadn't grown up with pets but it seemed easy enough to understand what he meant to her, much like her little sister meant to her. Aldhiyb could be seen like a little brother of sorts to Aurelia. Well maybe. Either way her thoughts kept jumping around until sleep eventually overtook her. It seemed it was enough to be a restful night and morning rose the clouds from last night had broken and the sun shone bright and pretty. A beautiful day indeed as Marcella had tiptoed out to the boat deck to take a look at the sun peaking over the horizon. Sure she was stark naked still, but really it didn't matter here if anyone saw her. At worst i might generate an amusing headline in a foreign press somewhere but it didn't matter now. All that mattered it was a new day, a day for Aurelia to start fresh and enjoy and relax a little. Duties were over. It was time to enjoy the festival. This was that one time before the deluge in the rainy season and after the peak of hurricane season (provided the Goddesses didn't have other plans like last time) where the weather was just perfect.

"All right, sounds like a fair exchange. You got yourselves a deal." She nodded then proceeded to follow their instructions for an exam.

Yuuki meanwhile had relaxed finished up her tea, she was ready to go off somewhere but it seemed the companion, Gopnik wanted her to follow him. "Hey, what is it fellow? Wanna go somewhere?" She got to her feet and decided to proceed with him. Where would this take her, she didn't know.


"Good then, replies Catherine, before allowing Riri inside her small exam room, and closing the curtain.

Gopnik, having finally got the attention of Yuuki, have her follow him to his mistress, Patricia.
"So, Miss Yuuki, I hope you had time to cool down, says the brown-haired Imperial Guard as the two approach her. I'm sorry we gave you a bad impression when we first arrived. In any case, I hope we can start over, says Patricia as she extends her hand towards Yuuki with a smile. Lieutenant Colonel Patricia Petrenko, Imperial Guard."

Murad Bey.
Port Aurora, Aurora.

I smiled a bit shyly, as the girl first talked with her mother and then led me to my room.
I had no idea about who my neighbours were. Still, the girl was cute, I had to say.
As she told me, that she was about to turn in and about to accept the last requests, I shook my head. "Thank you, Miss, but I think, that I'm going to turn in quite early.", I told her with a smile, then added a bit more sheepishly: "Though that raises the question... I heard, that people here sleep on the ground on thick blankets..."

Saida Adib.
Tsubaki, Animalpolis.

At her life-story, we smiled and listened with respect and attention.
"It is a beautiful story.", Fara said in the end, then nodded slightly. I knew, that she thought, that she didn't have that choice. Of course, our guide did not know that. Or at least she didn't show it. "I can imagine, that this would be a incisive moment in your life."

Ava Shabh.
Kitan.

I smiled and nodded.
"I see that.", I told her, "In Kyrenaia, going naked is a bad idea, mainly because of the Sun. The Lioness' Loving Gaze will deep fry you... yet, Manat's gentle light, the moon, has often served as light-spender for outings in the night." I smiled slightly. "I did go out in the cold nights, under Her gaze, wearing nothing but my hair a few times, I do so sometimes even today... and I did catch quite a few colds doing that, too!"

Princess Aurelia bint-Damir.
Port Aurora, aboard the Harira.

I did not wake up by the movements of Marcella, but I did soon afterwards, worrying - was it all a mirage? Did she, after hearing me yesterday, leave me after all? Had it all been a dream?
Aldhiyb sat peacefully in the corner and I felt very rested, so...
I rose from the little bunk, naked as the Gods made me and stretched. I saw, that the cabin door was open and put one and one together: Marcella was outside, watching the sunrise.
No reason not to join her, right? I quickly prepared a pot of water, which we would use for tea in a few minutes, but now, I had something else to do.
I snuck out, still undressed, and snuck up behind her, and for a moment, I was stumped: What to do now? Hug her from behind, sit down next to her, turn her around, throw her onto the deck and do things and stuff in broad daylight?
I did not know, how much time passed as I stood there, undecided as to what to do - Marcella, shone upon by the rising sun, looked so incredibly beautiful... and with all the loads off my shoulders, I could finally see, that she was not only incredibly beautiful physically speaking...

"Hehe I can understand that. I'm not versed much in politics either, I vote when we have the odd election which isn't often. I read the paper and that but really I guess I just go with the tied. Don't think to hard about this. Makes me sound a bit ignorant I know."


The slight turning of the ship made Homer a little more queasy. He is not sea sick usually, but after those couple bottles of beers yesterday, he still is not his best.

“Are we almost there?” Homer asks lying down.

“Still hungover?” Randy asks. Homer moans.




“That's fine” Sho explained, lying back on the beach. “I just want to rest for a while and soak in this nice island weather. It’s going to be autumn soon in my country and this would be my last chance to warm up under the sun”.
