clear clear clear.

“Dahlia,” Dianna was trying to sound calm but her voice still shook. “How does he have that? I thought WE destroyed that."

The anger was still very clear in Dahlia's voice as she replied, "That idiot is carrying an unfinished prototype that some stupid amateur tried to make. If he blows up using it, I will feel no remorse."

The Tech shook her head in disgust then sighed. She gradually calmed down, but still felt upset. Stupid Jenkins. She seriously wanted to kill him sometimes. Scratch that, all the time.

As everybody made final preparations, Dahlia rushed to her room and changed. Into a pair of black sweats and a figure-hugging dusty pink tube top. They were clean and neat, but hardly anything to wear when meeting a queen. Still, that was what she usually wore, so she'd stick with it. She grabbed a bag and filled it with some necessities, just in case something happened.

She rushed back out to meet the Captain, reporting that everything was clear. Her tech team would stay aboard on the ship as well, so if anything happened, they would be quick to know.

Aisling and Isis stationed themselves on each of Dahlia's shoulders, looking calm and bored. They were much older and wiser than the Queen, so they felt no nervousness, unlike Dahlia. Dahlia didn't like meeting the Queen. She just hoped the old lady wouldn't send them on some kind of ridiculous request.

virtue
What you’re looking for is right there.” She said pushing open the cage. “And no, he doesn’t have a name.”

"Ah sweet. A real Satyr." Virtue gazed at the creature sitting in its cage.

“You can name him if you want...” She paused, sighed deeply, and added, “Bring him up. We’re taking him with us.

"Did you hear that Sere? I can name him." Virtue looked at his little fox fairy. "Jealous, yet?"
"Nope. You'll probably end up naming him something stupid like.. Virtue Junior, or something."
Virtue rolled his eyes, then continued to look at the Satyr.

“Virtue!” She shouted, “Hurry up and bring the Satyr. We’re leaving.”

"Aye Cap'n." Virtue unlocked the cage with the key that hung on the wall nearby.
"Let's go Mr. Satyr."
"Don't tell me THAT'S his name Virtue. Surely you could come up with something better." Sere said sarcastically.
"No. It's just a.. temporary name. Yeah."
Virtue tied a rope around the creature's two arms and led it back up on deck.
"Cap'n! Where you want him? And.. ah, where are we going?"
Virtue look around puzzled as he saw the crew scrambling around.

helpful guards...


"That idiot is carrying an unfinished prototype that some stupid amateur tried to make. If he blows up using it, I will feel no remorse."

Dianna groaned. “Wait till I get my hands on him. He is going to get the beating of his life.” Even as kids, Jenkins was the idiot of the group always depending on the others to help him. Now as a ‘young adult’, a part of Dianna still felt she had to help him and she was pretty sure Cordelia and Tolland felt the same. ‘This is what happens when you make friends with idiots.’ She told herself catching the jacket Declan had just tossed her.

"Cap'n! Where you want him? And.. ah, where are we going?"
Virtue looked around puzzled as he saw the crew scrambling around.


Before Dianna could speak, the palace guards rushed forward (goodness who let them on the ship) taking the rope out of Virtue’s hands. “We assume this is for Her Majesty.”

Dianna nodded. “Why? Did she say I would be bringing the weirdest gift ever or something?”

For a minute the palace guards stayed silent, probably debating over whether to tell her or not, then nodded. “That is correct Captain.”

“That women..., Virtue! Great timing- into the carriage you go.” She said, quickly adding: “We’re going to see the Queen, and oh, Jenkins is here too.”

She rushed back out to meet the Captain, reporting that everything was clear.


“Alright, that’s great then. Declan can take care over things while we’re gone.” Dianna said running her finger through her hair, a failed attempt to straighten out the brown mess. Instead, she pulled out a hair elastic from her pocket and tied her hair up. Dianna clapped her hands together. “Let’s get moving.”

-

The carriage ride was long and tiring. Some pathways were smooth and other bumpy. Dianna looked out of the small window from the corner of her eye. The city hadn’t changed much. The markets were busy, the poor begged and the rich didn’t dare walk among the ‘commoners’. Aella sighed, glancing at the maps she had been clutching ever since Declan handed them to her.

“We’re close,” Dianna said after what seemed like over an hour without having to look out of the window. She could feel the carriage slowing down and finally coming to a stop. The sun’s position in the sky told her it was coming up to around eight o’ clock.

“You should hurry,” the palace guard advised opening the carriage door for them. “Breakfast is served at eight sharp. And Her Majesty hates tardiness.”

“I know I know,” Dianna moaned stepping out of the carriage with ease. “That women is already driving me insane!”

welcomes are exciting.

Dahlia stepped out of the carriage in relief. She hated being stuck inside a carriage or a car for too long. The space inside was so small, unlike the vast openness of a ship.

You should hurry,” the palace guard advised opening the carriage door for them. “Breakfast is served at eight sharp. And Her Majesty hates tardiness.”

“I know I know,” Dianna moaned stepping out of the carriage with ease. “That women is already driving me insane!”


Dahlia groaned. She honestly wasn't such a big fan of the Queen. Aisling and Isis fluttered behind the Tech, talking quietly amongst themselves. Dahlia was kind of curious, but decided not to listen.

Suddenly, a swishing mass of white colored something crashed into the Captain with a joyous squeal.

"Dianna!" a rather pretty voice cried.

It took a while for Dahlia to figure out what had happened. She had to wait a few moments for the swirling white colored thing, which ended up being a rather long dress, to settle down. Once it did, she could see a girl hugging tightly onto the Captain. When Dahlia got a good look at the girl, she realized who it was. The silver hair. The dark eyes. The fancy dress. It could be only one person.

The Queen's granddaughter, Princess Cordelia Iren.

"Dianna, Dianna, Dianna!" the Princess giggled, finally pulling back, "You're here! I can't believe it! I haven't seen you in forever! Happy birthday, even though it's a few days late! Your mom did invite me, but I couldn't make it. Grandma wouldn't approve, and neither did Tolland. Hmph. But still, I'm so glad you're here!"

virtue adventure time!
Before Dianna could speak, the palace guards rushed forward (goodness who let them on the ship) taking the rope out of Virtue’s hands. “We assume this is for Her Majesty.”


Virtue watched as the guards took the Satyr away. "Nooo... Mr. Satyr.." Virtue mock-wept softly.

“That women..., Virtue! Great timing- into the carriage you go.”

"Ah! Okay!" Virtue jumped into the carriage and off they were to see the Queen.
He sat in a slump as he sat in retrospect thinking about the Satyr.
"Why so glum Virtue?" Sere sat in Virtue's lap and looked up at him.
He sighed. "Just thinking `bout stuff."
"Satyr stuff?"
"Yeah. I could've clipped some pieces of his hair! AGGH! There were so many chances!"
"It's alright. I'm sure you'll see the Satyr later on."

“You should hurry,” the palace guard advised opening the carriage door for them. “Breakfast is served at eight sharp. And Her Majesty hates tardiness.”

"Breakfast? Alright! I feel sooo great right now." Virtue busted out his harmonica
from his back pocket and started to play a happy tune.
Sere sat on his head and hummed and bobbed her head to the beat.

Suddenly, a swishing mass of white colored something crashed into the Captain with a joyous squeal.
"Dianna!" a rather pretty voice cried.


Virtue set his eyes on a glowing white piece of pretty. His harmonica sounded got lower and lower
until the notes finally spurted out.
Virtue walked up right next to Dahlia. "Who dat?" he whispered.

say whaaa?

Virtue walked up right next to Dahlia. "Who dat?" he whispered.

Dahlia jumped in surprise, then blushed.

"Oops, sorry. I get scared easily. That would be the Queen's granddaughter, Princess Cordelia Iren. And wow, I have never seen silver hair that's so sparkly and glow-y," Dahlia answered, the last sentence said in awe.

The fairies giggled, amused by the girl's reverence for the Princess's hair. It was understandable, though. Silver hair like that was so very rare these days. Sure, people had silver hair. But nothing like Cordelia's. She was a princess after all.

Cordelia suddenly turned their way, a bright smile on her face.

"And are they part of the famous Big Five that I've heard so much about?" the princess grinned, walking their way.

Dahlia freaked. How was she supposed to greet a princess? A curtsy? But doing a curtsy in sweats would be so weird!

As if the Princess knew what she was thinking, the girl laughed and said, "No worries! I don't mind all the polite formalities and such. My name is Cordelia, but please feel free to call my Cor."

Dahlia gasped, "Um... I don't think calling a Princess on a first name basis is something that is allowed for me..."

Cor nodded in understanding, "Well, then please call me whatever makes you feel comfortable."

It took all the control the Tech had to keep her jaw from dropping. What kind of princess was so lax on rules, regulations, and formalities?! More like, it seemed that the Princess followed these strange rules of her own. And not to be rude, but she seemed rather... eccentric.

Dahlia was snapped out of her thoughts when the Princess danced back over to Dianna, hooking her arm with the Captain's.

"Let's make a grand entrance, shall we? I've been feeling so bored these days, and I'm sure Grandma will blow a fuse when we walk into breakfast like this," Cordelia giggled, "And I know how much you love making Grandma mad."

Posted 7/31/10
old friends.

"Dianna!"

The Captain barely had time to react. She felt the corners of her lips become a smile as she laughed out loud. She quickly wrapped her arms around her friend, hugging her tightly. “It’s so good to see you.” She exclaimed grinning from ear to ear.

"You're here! I can't believe it! I haven't seen you in forever! Happy birthday, even though it's a few days late! Your mom did invite me, but I couldn't make it. Grandma wouldn't approve, and neither did Tolland. Hmph. But still, I'm so glad you're here!"

Dianna couldn’t stop her smiles. “I know right! Gosh, it’s so exciting seeing you again. It’s been too long. Thanks, it started great, and then things got weird. Ugh, that is so typical of both of them, such spoilsports. But forget that, ahh, I feel so much better now.” She was clapping her hands together happily.

Dianna took a step back to get a good look at her friend. “Pretty as usual I see. Did you get taller or something?” She asked.

"And are they part of the famous Big Five that I've heard so much about?"

Dianna nodded proudly. “Yes, yes they are. This is Dahlia Cyra, our beloved Technician. We’d be lost without her. Seriously. Lost. And this is Virtue Cruikshank, he’s-” She groaned noticing his expression. “Stop gawping.” She muttered pinching Virtue’s arm looking to Sere for some help.

"Let's make a grand entrance, shall we? I've been feeling so bored these days, and I'm sure Grandma will blow a fuse when we walk into breakfast like this," Cordelia giggled, "And I know how much you love making Grandma mad."

“AH, you haven’t forgotten!” Dianna exclaimed. “It’s hilarious watching her forehead crease every time she sees me. The best certainly was two years back, when I came for your birthday with the fireworks. Oh, she flipped when we set them off inside the main hall.” The captain laughed remembering how mad the Queen was back then. Dianna was so sure the Queen would exile her from Mist City or something. It was one of the funniest and scariest experiences Dianna had been through. “Let’s go in!”

The palace guards kindly opened the huge, metal doors (that one human could not open alone. They probably had super strength or something) revealing a brightly lit lobby and palace workers standing in a line from the main door to the dining hall door. Dianna blinked; the Queen was too much sometimes.

“Cordelia,” Dianna felt her whole body cringe. “Your Grandma says breakfast is about to be- Ah, Dianna. You’re finally here.” Jenkins stood at the closed dining hall door looking at the newly arrived party. She watched as he scanned their faces before breaking out into a huge smile.

“Dahlia!” His voice suddenly sounded a lot brighter. Dianna growled, ready to knock him unconscious if he tried anything suspicious. “You came too?” He asked, blanking Dianna completely. It didn’t take long for Dianna to put things together. Jenkins, a technology lover. Dahlia, a brilliant technician. What kind of plan had he thought up this time?

saw it coming.

Dianna took a step back to get a good look at her friend. “Pretty as usual I see. Did you get taller or something?” She asked.

"Oh, please," Cor blushed, "Nothing an additional inch of heel can't do. More like, you've grown prettier, beautiful." The princess laughed, but was completely serious.

“Yes, yes they are. This is Dahlia Cyra, our beloved Technician. We’d be lost without her. Seriously. Lost. And this is Virtue Cruikshank, he’s-” She groaned noticing his expression. “Stop gawping.”

Cordelia giggled, "Nice to meet you two!"

“AH, you haven’t forgotten!” Dianna exclaimed. “It’s hilarious watching her forehead crease every time she sees me. The best certainly was two years back, when I came for your birthday with the fireworks. Oh, she flipped when we set them off inside the main hall.”

"Oh my goodness!" the Princess exclaimed, "That was hilarious! It was the best birthday ever! Grandma was so furious, she was seriously about to kill you!"

“Cordelia,” Dianna felt her whole body cringe. “Your Grandma says breakfast is about to be- Ah, Dianna. You’re finally here.” Jenkins stood at the closed dining hall door looking at the newly arrived party.

"Shush, Jenkins. I know. Moreover, stop calling me Cordelia!" she was on the verge of rolling her eyes, but caught herself. A princess must never do that. Snort.

“Dahlia!” His voice suddenly sounded a lot brighter. “You came too?”

"No, I'm just a figure of your imagination," Dahlia said flatly, suspicious of his sudden bright tone.

virtue meets a princess & someone else
Dahlia jumped in surprise, then blushed.

"Ahh-- no.. I.." Virtue stumbled on his words after seeing Dahlia so surprised. Sere noticed, shook her head, and pinched his cheek.

"Oops, sorry. I get scared easily. That would be the Queen's granddaughter, Princess Cordelia Iren. And wow, I have never seen silver hair that's so sparkly and glow-y," Dahlia answered, the last sentence said in awe.

"Woah. Princess? ...Sweet."

Dianna nodded proudly. “Yes, yes they are. This is Dahlia Cyra, our beloved Technician. We’d be lost without her. Seriously. Lost. And this is Virtue Cruikshank, he’s-” She groaned noticing his expression. “Stop gawping.” She muttered pinching Virtue’s arm looking to Sere for some help.

Sere pinched his cheek. "Ow." Virtue mumbled, rubbing his arm and cheek.

Cordelia giggled, "Nice to meet you two!"

Virtue brightened at the princess' laugh. "It's nice to meet you as well!"

“Cordelia,” Dianna felt her whole body cringe. “Your Grandma says breakfast is about to be- Ah, Dianna. You’re finally here.”
Jenkins stood at the closed dining hall door looking at the newly arrived party.

"Shush, Jenkins. I know. Moreover, stop calling me Cordelia!"

“Dahlia!” His voice suddenly sounded a lot brighter.


Jenkins? Virtue thought to himself. It sounded familiar but he decided to ask about him later.
He could feel some kind of tension building up here.

"Hey, you." Virtue waited until he was acknowledged by Jenkins, then started walking towards him. "Not sure exactly who you are but I'm know that you're causing some serious distress for these ladies way too early in the morning."
Virtue was now in front of this Jenkins-person. Not that much difference in height, they met eye-to-eye.
"And quite frankly, it's pissing me off even more."

Posted 8/14/10
losing my mind.

"No, I'm just a figure of your imagination,"

Dianna grinned; she was worried for no reason, Dahlia could very much take care of herself. Jenkins flinched slightly, but continued with his cheerful tone. “No need to act so distance, in time we will be great friends.” He nodded his head, as if agreeing with his own thoughts.

"Hey, you."

Jenkins sighed deeply before turning to Virtue. “There is always a guy who just HAS to butt into my conversations.” He said, his expression turning sour.

"Not sure exactly who you are but I'm know that you're causing some serious distress for these ladies way too early in the morning. And quite frankly, it's pissing me off even more."

Jenkins snorted and looked over at Dianna. “From your ship? I didn’t know you were recruiting idiots.”

Dianna gritted her teeth.

“You should have said before... I could have sent some your way!” Jenkins called patting Virtue’s shoulder.

“What, your whole crew then?” Dianna retorted, her temper flaring up.

“Jenkins,” A cold voice interrupted, “Her Majesty said to call them in, not to join them outside.” Tolland stood at the door to the dining hall, an annoyed expression set on his face.

Dianna watched as Jenkins’s shoulders drooped. Hayden had always felt inferior when Tolland was at the scene; mainly because Tolland had a talent in making Jenkins look like an idiot. It was probably those moments had made Dianna feel sorry for Jenkins.

“Aella and her crew have arrived.” Jenkins said his voice less confident than a few minutes ago.

“I’m not blind Hayden,” Tolland said before heading back into the dining hall, Jenkins followed, close behind.

Aella shook her head in disapproval: “Rained right on his parade. Ahh...” she clicked her tongue. “ Did Jenkins deserve that?”

tsk tsk all around.

“No need to act so distance, in time we will be great friends.”

"Like I said, that's all you. I won't be having any reasons to become acquainted with the likes of you," Dahlia said coldly.

“There is always a guy who just HAS to butt into my conversations.” He said, his expression turning sour.
[...]
“You should have said before... I could have sent some your way!” Jenkins called patting Virtue’s shoulder.


"Jenkins, I will not have you talk to our guests like that. I may be your friend, but I will have no hesitations to remove you from my presence," Cor hissed.

“Jenkins,” A cold voice interrupted, “Her Majesty said to call them in, not to join them outside.” Tolland stood at the door to the dining hall, an annoyed expression set on his face.

Dianna watched as Jenkins’s shoulders drooped. Hayden had always felt inferior when Tolland was at the scene; mainly because Tolland had a talent in making Jenkins look like an idiot.


Cordelia sighed. This usually happened. She felt bad for Jenkins, but at the same time, she believed it was time for him to clean up his act as well. Dahlia just watched the scene unfold with a confused expression. It was clear that the Captain was close to the three, but how, she wasn't sure. Well, she wasn't one to pry, so she decided to leave it at that.

Aella and her crew have arrived.” Jenkins said his voice less confident than a few minutes ago.

“I’m not blind Hayden,” Tolland said before heading back into the dining hall, Jenkins followed, close behind.

Aella shook her head in disapproval: “Rained right on his parade. Ahh...” she clicked her tongue. “ Did Jenkins deserve that?”


"Deserve it or not, Jenkins will be Jenkins, and Tolland will be Tolland," the Princess said flatly, a sad edge hidden in her tone.

"Well, let's not keep Grandma waiting any longer," and with that, the crew followed after them.


Posted 8/19/10
jebal.

"Deserve it or not, Jenkins will be Jenkins, and Tolland will be Tolland,"

Dianna sighed, “I guess so.” She finally said keeping in mind not to be too harsh on Jenkins for a while. Arguing with him when he was down wasn’t something Dianna wanted. Maybe if Tolland didn’t hate pirates so much, he would go easier on Jenkins. That was just a wish though; Tolland’s hatred was far too deep.

"Well, let's not keep Grandma waiting any longer,"

“You’re right; I’m too hungry to argue with her right now too...” Dianna said and headed into the dining hall, motioning her crew members to follow. The hall was all gold and white. Dazzling lights hung in the air, no wires attached. As amazing as the hall was, the only thing Dianna could think was, ‘the poor cleaners’. Cutting the hall in half was the lengthy old mahogany table bought by the previous king for his beloved wife. Sitting at the head of the table was Cor’s grandmother, the current queen, ‘Rayna.’

The Queen cleared her throat, as they traipsed in, (the pirates not the Princess) “Finally Dianna! And here I thought I was about to die of old age.” Dianna sighed; but didn’t retort. Quietly, she took her seat next to Cordelia, opposite of Tolland. He raised an eyebrow, obviously expected her to shoot something back.

“Shall we eat?” Dianna suggested wanting things to move faster.

The Queen snapped her fingers; automatically servants appeared to take the lids of the dishes. “Yes, let’s eat.”

There was silence for a while, just the dull sound of clattering plates and cutlery echoed around the hall. “So,” the Queen started, “What did you bring for me this time?” She sipped her tea coolly.

“A Satyr.”

“...,Admiral. How is my fleet?” The Queen asked, already moving from the gift topic. Tolland looked up from his plate at the mention of his title.

“Grand, Your Majesty. But I must say that Pirates are becoming more of an issue these days.”

eat in peace.

“You’re right; I’m too hungry to argue with her right now too...” Dianna said and headed into the dining hall, motioning her crew members to follow.

Dahlia was amazed by the beautiful room. You could immediately tell that it was meant for royalty. She felt so out of place in it, but then again, pirates weren't supposed to be comfortable with royalty. That's just not how it worked.

The Tech stayed polite, and dully listened to the conversations as she quietly ate.

"Admiral. How is my fleet?” The Queen asked, already moving from the gift topic. Tolland looked up from his plate at the mention of his title.

“Grand, Your Majesty. But I must say that Pirates are becoming more of an issue these days.”


Dahlia's finger gave a twitch. Well wasn't he rude. She decided to ignore it and continued to eat.

Meanwhile, Cordelia was having a tough time controlling herself. She was good at keeping a calm face when it came to strangers, but she didn't appreciate how Tolland brought such a topic up in front of Dianna and her crew. But knowing Tolland, she had already expected this.

She gently put down her fork and knife, and began to speak.

"I'm sure they are, Tolland. They always have been. Now Grandma, if I may say, can we keep business talk to a minimum? It's been a while since we've seen Dianna, and she has been so kind to take such a long journey to come. I'm sure she and her crew are very tired. So please, let's just enjoy breakfast and deal with the formalities after."

virtue catching up
"Well, let's not keep Grandma waiting any longer," and with that, the crew followed after them.

Virtue followed everyone into the grand dining room. He whistled at its extravagance. Sere, who had reverted to her fox form, scratched lightly at Virtue's boot. He quickly covered his mouth as he laid his eyes on the Queen.
Even though he had never seen the Queen in his life, it was pretty easy to spot her.

Shall we eat?” Dianna suggested wanting things to move faster.

The Queen snapped her fingers; automatically servants appeared to take the lids of the dishes. “Yes, let’s eat.”


Virtue took a seat next to Dahlia. Sere the Fox had slipped underneath the table and quietly sat at Virtue's feet.
He ate heartily as this was his first meal since he had woken up.

“What did you bring for me this time?” She sipped her tea coolly.
“A Satyr.”


Virtue paused as he was about to feed himself a piece of bread. He discreetly looked around the room, no Satyr. Maybe they would bring him in later, then Virtue will get the chance to snip some of his hair. He smiled, completely satisfied with his idea, and continued to eat.

"... But I must say that Pirates are becoming more of an issue these days.”

Virtue slurped his broth.. loudly at the sound of that comment. He looked up innocently to see that everyone was either glaring at him or giving him questioning looks. "Excuse me... Ah, this broth is most excellent." He smiled at the Queen, hoping to get on her good side.
