She cocked her head a little in surprise given she was making small talk but the honest answer was an honest answer. She smiled "Yes, we don't have much heavy industry here so I guess that keeps things clean. So that must mean you are travelers not from here at all. So welcome. Heading to Corona I guess or you would have already disembarked." A slight bump in things as the boat went over a wave but the boat sailed on as normal. "Heading home myself. We went to Hoshino for a few books for me."


“Yeah, we are on vacation” Tamaki says. “So, you must be school aged if you were looking for books aren’t you?” Rose asked.

Mervay wrote:"The preparations for it and how the brides prepares themselves for the ceremony,sorry for not making myself clear" she apologies for the problem.


"No no it's okay, we're still learning how to get through our languages together. Oh when it comes for prep there's a few things expected. Of course you have your usual talking to the parents of each family to quaint yourself better after that the bride and groom both do their own things separate but the traditions are the same. A bride will go off to meditate and pray. Now how this is done is up to them, many like to soak in water because water is often seen as a great way to communicate or be close with the Goddesses. I've known some to go to sea for days and days just to think and pray. The talk with a Priest or Priestess, usually it's whomever they want to do the ceremony for them but sometimes it's just a trusted one with the family."

Danceria wrote:Aceus would then pick at his food nervously. He wasn't exactly one for sitting around and waiting for something dangerous to come to him, but...since he couldn't exactly claim expertise on hurricanes, he had little choice other than to nod. "Sorry, I'm an optimistic pessimist. Believing that the worst possible situation will occur, and either being pleasantly surprised that it didn't happen, or prepare so much that it passes over you..." Aceus would explain. "I'm probably fretting over nothing."


"Ah I bet you find us just as too relaxed about the situation. It's just so hard to say we've heard warnings of storms and nothing happens and heard warnings and everything happens. These are so seldom predictable."

"Prepare for the worst, hope for the best is all you can do. For all we know it could already be on us given the storm right now"

"It feels ordinary to me" Hina remarked "hurricanes usually have a lot more wind. Don't worry Anna, we'll make it through it, if nothing happens great if something does don't worry you got us!"

"mmm this is a bit morbid to ask I know," Anna inquired "Just how bad have you experienced? I''m from the plains, farm country where I'm from, and I've dealt with my share of storms and twisters but something like a hurricane is all new to me..."

"We've had it as bad as pretty much everything is gone." Haru honestly replied. "But we can rebuild, replant, get new livestock. And yes sometimes in the middle of it we've had to mad swim or run for our very lives. Important thing is we make it through together as our family. I'm sorry to you both, I wish we could give more answers but sometimes there's just never telling how bad it's gonna be until it's right on you. Just have to use judgement from what sky watchers and sailors are saying. "

Cartoonia wrote:“Yeah, we are on vacation” Tamaki says. “So, you must be school aged if you were looking for books aren’t you?” Rose asked.


"that's right." She nodded "I'm also blind so I have to get special books for me. They're not readily in Corona so I have to travel to get them when my teachers can't get them delivered. It's okay I don't mind, as long as my mama goes with me. I know I have to start to rely on myself more but having her along makes the experience easier."

She was very interested in that aspect of the tradition since that would be of help for her in the future. It was an good idea for her to try to soak in water when she does the pray and of course the classic talk with the priest or priestess,that surely would be the same as the talk with the catholic priest.

"I see,it's very interesting to say at least. Your traditions never leaves to surprise me" she said with an smile in her face.

"By the way speaking of the talk with the priest. Since you say that is almost always an trusted one in the family. Who would do our ceremony then or do you know one that can do it??"

Satou thought a moment a bit off guard to think she never thought of it "Oh my...There's so many in the Church that do so much good for granny and me. The High Priestess welcomed us when we first moved here, There's Priestess Gisella Villa, I see her often she's always volunteering there. She's actually this nation's Princess if you can believe that! There's Priest Tamaki Ono, he's very nice and kind to everyone he meets. I think he had a bit of a crush on me to be honest." She giggled at it, feeling sorry for him a little "But he's always nice. Priestess Fumiko Nanao has tended to our family needs often so i might call upon her if she's available. Sadly sometimes their spiritual duties do take them elsewhere and a lot can happen in two years."

Tess was surprised of the large amount of priests that could host the ceremony for Satou and her,even the Princess of AHSCA could host it.

"So we have the high priestess,Princess Gisella,an priest that might have an crush on you and an old family friend. That's an lot to choose" Tess said surprised of it,so many to choose for the ceremony.

"Well better be someone close to your family the one that host it,but if she can't. We can always count with the rest of the priests that you mentioned"

"Yeah, I've been told as much." he said while sitting down at the end of the bed. He took his suit jacket off, next his vest, and finally his shirt along with his pants, leaving him in his boxers and black knee socks. He wasn't an abundantly hairy man but it was a significant amount on his chest, and arms, around his neck he wore a small golden crucifix necklace. He wasn't the most shredded man but working the land doesn't make you weak either. "Uhh, I'm going to take a shower, ever since, you know. I rarely spend my time here as it is, I think they have room sevice, but I doubt it, help yourself to whatever." he went to the bathroom, spending a good 40-50 minutes in there.


Jail:

"Ay officer. Come here and answer something. If he posted me as bail, what can I give, make sure I don't skip?" he asked leaning to the bars.

"Ah a topic I can get behind!" Haru replied enthusiastically "Well I command a pretty humble two masted Brigantine for my ferryboat work around the islands. Long haul trips abroad which I do on occasion I do with a three or four masted Barque."

"You'd have to offer quite a bit. Something we could assure you wouldn't skip out on us. Information would be nice if you'd like to get out but what do you have to offer?"

Aceus nodded. "Mostly just transporting cargo and passengers between the islands, or have you ever been to other lands?"

Truth be told, Aceus wasn't sure how the Islands could boast such a vast but antiquated navy. Sure, the harbors in Aurora and Port Aya were impressive, but he wondered why they wouldn't invest in more modern boats. Not that he had anything against sailing, he was born on a barque for Valar's sake! ...But Aceus saw several ways for the islands to improve their infrastructure. Perhaps he would discuss that with the Duchess Marcella...when and if she ever called him. His thoughts once more drifted to certain Kyrenaian princesses, and the need to hide his guilt and confusion beneath a charming and polite visage. Thankfully, he was trained as a diplomat for this exact reason.

"Mostly island hopping but I've been off to far off places. Actually, Vulpo and me were working on a long haul trip to Mokastana next month though a hurricane coming I might make me stay put longer than I thought."

"Aww sorry, mama I know you were looking forward to the trip. Plus that's good money we're giving up"

"Oh no matter there will be other trips. And it's only money, you are way more important. Not to mention our new guest here. What about you, Sir, you seem like quite a man of mystery and sounds like you have your experience with sailing. What's your rig like?"

"Just a single sail yacht." Aceus shrugged "too big to be a one man boat, but too small to be a yacht. I call it my ocean going apartment. Nice for week-long cruises, and she's tough enough to weather most storms, as Anna can attest." he would chew on his pork rice, formulating an answer. "I guess you could say I'm a bit of a celebrity in Danceria. Even close to His Majesty! ...So it was about high time I went back to my roots. Wandering from place to place, playing small time gigs at the temples. It's nice..." he would half-confess, unwilling to place a burden of hospitality on the humble farmers more than he already is. "The two of us are practically doppelgangers of one another, which is why His Majesty dyes his hair red." he would chuckle "The two of us used to go to the same high school and university together."

"Ah not bad at all." Haru agreed "Sounds like you have quite a reputation. I'm glad you are taking time to really get yourself more sound or keep your self in a solid place. It's so sad to hear about people of high stature just loosing themselves in decadence. They achieve so much and have so much but somehow they just let it overtake them. They all chase something so fleeting like money they forget their passions or the things in life. It's why I'm glad to live here. You sail around as much as I do and see many people I do I get asked why reduce ourselves to something like here, a small little farm in this little island. Ah it's simple here, easy going. I think you feel the same way which is why you're staying with us, though the Temple is far from a bad place to spend some time at either."

Don't know if you plan on making AHSCA your home long term or not but all I can say is, you'd fit in right well here. We'd love to hear some songs from you, even those about Yue. you may be right he may be kind of an unsung hero of our religion. Never hurts to hear someone's opinion on it."

"No it is free. And usually so are my books even though we have to get them custom. Just unfortunately sometimes resources are limited for special needs like me. But really listen, it's not all bad." She hated the idea maybe she was talking down on her home like this because it was her home. "Even if I couldn't read at least I could listen to the teacher lecture. So honestly I'm better off than others in some regards. I mean 100 years ago, I probably wouldn't even be alive. I'd just be put away because I'd be a burden not someone special. But that was a very long time ago things are not that way now."

Danceria wrote:"Amen to that." Aceus smiled "Even those of us who started out small and made it big, we sometimes lose sight of our passions and focus more on the materialistic goods that come with getting famous. I just hope never to lose my passion, or my talent." he would smile "I've sang a few songs at the temple. Mostly romantic songs, but I've been cooking up a little ballad for Yue. Ever since I've heard about him, I've always wondered why he gets neglected...? I guess I found some things in common with him."
Like being the object of two girls affections... he would note demurely.
"By the time the storm hits, and if I'm not too busy getting some stragglers into the shelter, maybe I'll sing it for ya..."


"Mmmhm." She nodded agreeing with him "I could tell you had a good head on your shoulders already. Don't know if you plan on making AHSCA your home long term or not but all I can say is, you'd fit in right well here. We'd love to hear some songs from you, even those about Yue. you may be right he may be kind of an unsung hero of our religion. Never hurts to hear someone's opinion on it."

Aceus would blush at the kind words "Danceria always has been, and always will be my home. With no disrespect to any people here." he smiled at Haru, Hina, and Annabell especially "You all have been wonderfully accommodating, charming, and generally good people." he would shrug "But I am, alas, only here for roughly another week and a half. But I will enjoy it greatly if every Aschan is just as compassionate as you are."

"Ah of course" Haru nodded again "Home is where your home is, can't deny that. AHSCA will surely always be mine no matter how far I travel on the seas. Well you may return on to your home but I hope you'll also return to AHSCA some time again. And I hope you won't leave us before we get a good song out of you."

"Haru knows a good soul when she sees it" Vulpo agreed despite being quite he had been listening intently, just a man of few words. "She saw lots in me, a quiet fisherman and now here we are, a beautiful girl of our own, a little home and good company to share it with. You'll find many of us islanders are compassionate and kind. These are the treasures we value a lot."

"That's so nice, papa" Hina praised

"Well us quiet types have lots to say when we feel like it." He chuckled a bit.

Annabell agreed her eyes a little teary. So far from home but this place was just as good.

"Sure go ahead. I'll be here." she sat down making herself comfortable and patiently waiting his return. But she was a bit surprised how long he was taking to the point she dozed off again.

Jail:

"You'd have to offer quite a bit. Something we could assure you wouldn't skip out on us. Information would be nice if you'd like to get out but what do you have to offer?"


The first 30 minutes were actually showering while the rest was prepping for sleep. He exited the bathroom and found Shoko asleep. “Patience is a virtue.” he mumbled to himself. Setting his towel on a chair, he was ready to hit the pillow until he heard something vibrating, he looked around to see where it Camembert from and he found it in his suit jacket, it was his phone.

Who am I speaking to?” he questioned.

Your ticket home. How are you doing?

I’m fine, used Borgonni as bait, I probably told you that.

Yes you did. Not doing anything that can land you back in are you?

I don’t know, is standing naked in a room with a hooker illegal.” he smiled as he looked at the window, noticing the storm was picking up.

A few moments of silence passed when the man spoke again “No it is not I have regrettable news, I won’t be able to make it by morning, there’s a storm apparently and the earliest they’ve notified me is tomorrow afternoon or mid-day. I might not even get there tomorrow. I’m sorry.

Listen here, you’re getting here tomorrow! I don’t want to wait another more day than I have to here. We came in a little too hot so things might not work here. It is perfectly fertile, the Italians would love this place. But please try your hardest.

The man on the other end sighed “I’ll try and get there as soon as possible, I’ll let you know when. Ciao.

He hung up and left Jose in a bit of frustration. He was about to slam his phone on the bed but rememered Shoko was there

Jail

“Well, I have no information regrettably” Giuseppe responded “But I do have money.”

“100 years ago?” Tamaki asks interested.

Aceus would quietly hold her hand under the table, and give it a reassuring squeeze. "What better way to weather a storm than through a little music. I'll be certain to swing by this way." He would have to disagree with Haru about his soul being "good", or else he wouldn't have gotten into this mess in the first place. "You're certainly right about us eye it types, Mr. Vulpo. Though it must have quite a story, how the two of you met..."

The Kitan
"Hmm, would you look at that?" Einuis mused, looking outside his window at the worsening weather by standing on the windowsill, "That report really wasn't wrong, huh? Well, whatever. This definitely isn't that bad."
"My lord!" said Fimbulvetr as he ran up to his king, "We still have time to leave the islands on a vessel before the hurricane hits."
"Eh, I don't care," he replied, dismissively waving a flipper at him, "It's been too quiet in Psytronius anyway. I really need some excitement... but I am getting a bit hungry. Go get us some food from the restaurant, downstairs, would you? Take Diamond Dust along." Nodding his understanding, Fimbulvetr sauntered over to where the mentioned servant was & tapped her on the back with his flipper. From there, the two then exited the room for the restaurant.

Once down there, they would approach an available waitress. "Hey," Fimbulvetr would call out once he found them, "Uh, would it be possible to buy some more fried rice?"

"Yeah,I'm sure that we will choose soon,but for now we have the options and that's an good start" Tess says as she continues eating her food and seeing the sea,the storm will surely make things difficult and with the Hurricane coming,the schedule would need to be reset for compensate the time stuck in Aurora because of it,but for Tess it was worth it considering that she has more time to spend with her girlfriend in Aurora.

Some time later Tess has ended her dish and tea,and as always it was delicious for her. Taking her time to end it,and once done she ended it and waited for her girlfriend to end hers.

"Sweetie that food was awesome. Do you want something else here??" she asks requesting an waitress.
