The most important place in Forte. It is where fights take place and also the place where you can find out who belongs to which faction. The gossip mill is here and I stress once again, the most important place in Forte. It is imperative to always check back there. A half destroyed statue stands in the centre. People are waiting for the day it is finally destroyed.

People may die.

Alice-Marie who rather just be called Alice yawned as she walked into the courtyard. She took a glance around, found no one she knew and stood beside the statue. She stared at it and poked it. Some stone crumbled and fell onto the floor. The poor statue. It had taken so much damage lately especially from the fire and ice fight from yesterday. She smirked a little. Deadly Nightshade had won. The member from Gladiolus was hauled off and subsequently killed for revealing his identity so callously. She looked around and tilted her head a little at the approaching person.

'Haaa, ahh haan," Bassam began singing while he stringed this guitar some little kid somewhere gave him. He was sitting on his alcohol barrel which was under a small platform with wheels. Bassam accidentally, almost bumped into Alice but stopped himself. Blushing on the inside, he smiled on the inside and mouthed an apology before he rolled off, singing around the place.

"Bassam." the statement was flat and was followed by a sigh.
Alice followed him and stood in front of him. After staring at him, she quailed a little. What was she doing standing in front of him?
"B-Bassam," she stammered, hands flying a little. "You..." she trailed off, unsure how to continue.
And once again, her wittiness failed her. Terribly. Alice blushed and lowered her eyes to the ground as she shifted on her two feet. Golden-yellow and red eyes flitted around as she tried hard not to make eye contact with him. Her mind was blank and only filled with oh gods. She hated being shy of boys but it was so innate that she couldn't help it!

"Oh!" Bassam stopped and looked at Alice, smiling widely on the inside, but his face as stone cold as ever. Previously, he was completely focused on the song and had no idea the lady he almost bumped into was Alice. "Good day to you, Ally~ Is something the matter?" Bassam asked, his voice overpowered with concern and glee. He put down his guitar and stood up, possibly towering over her, as he gave a light wave.

A-ah...I think..I'm going to faint...No! I must stay str- Alice gave up on trying to console herself and put some distance between herself and him. She knew he meant no harm but she still couldn't help shying away from him. She cursed her brother in her mind.
"Nothing is the matter, Bassam. Just you know, my usual nervousness acting up." she shrugged. She knew him well enough that he would most likely know of her shyness around males. She hoped he did anyway. Or she would have to explain herself as things usually went.
"And how about you Bassam? How are you?"

"Ah, my apologies, Ally." Bassam took a few steps back, humming a tune, still smiling on the inside. "I thought you didn't like the song." His eyes twinkled with laughter and giddy. "Wonderful, this day had been filled with joy and peace, that soothes my soul." Taking a moment, Bassam looked around the area and said, "I've still been offering to take it away, you know."

Alice allowed herself a genuine smile. It was very Bassam-like to be describing a day like this. It was quite peaceful actually. Compared to the bloodshed yesterday. She sighed.
"I know but I cannot burden you with something like this. It's just something I have to deal with by myself," she replied. The by myself part was spoken so softly it was a whisper. She looked at the clear sky and tugged her blazer tighter around her.
She looked at the statue and saw a girl get pushed onto it. The statue wobbled a little. Alice winced. Just how long would it take for the statue to fall?

Bassam was going to charge right to the girl to see if she was okay, but then remembered that if he, this mafia bodyguard looking man charged towards a stranger, it'd be less of a comfort and more of a nightmare, so he held himself back, keeping her in the corner of his eye.
"If ever this child of Mother Nature can be of help, never hesitate to call, Ally~" Bassam sang. There was something about today that made him want to start a campfire right here, right now, and gather people to sing around it. He noticed that as he was thinking this, he was staring at Alice so he blushed like a girl on the inside and quit his staring. "Does the statue not please you?"

(My last post of the night. I got to sleep early /o/. Not feeling too good D: )

Alice cracked a smile again. She shrunk a little under his stare and wondered why he was staring so strongly at her. She trusted him not to suddenly pounce on her or anything like that though. The horror.
"Hm?" the answer was more instinctive than anything. Finally registering his question, she shook her head. "I just keep wondering why it doesn't fall over despite the abuse."

The smile on the inside of Bassam grew larger—it was so large that his mouth slightly twitched—he liked seeing others smile, especially his friends. "It must be a symbol of Mother Earth, oh," as Bassam said this, he put a hand over his heart. "I support you statue. Mother Earth would be so proud of you, stall tall brother." Though, he realized, speaking of brothers, Bassam could easily ask his brother to mend the statue but he realized that would be like taking Alice's shyness away. "Sometimes," he said, looking at Alice with that blank face of his. "I guess standing up with no help is a part of nature's way. How soothing."

Cherry strolled into the courtyard, squaring her shoulders and straightening her back as she approached Alice and Bassam. She was now surrounded by people, so she needed to keep her professional act up. However, she failed to cease sucking childishly on the remaining three squares of her caramel chocolate as she passed the two breezily and gave them a scarce nod.

"Like the sapling bending to the wind and the oak tree still standing tall," Alice mused.
She glanced to the side and her eyes met with Brian's. He gave a cursory nod and she smiled a little at him. The couple went back to ignoring each other. Neither of them were willing in that arranged marriage. She looked at Bassam's mouth.
"It twitched, just a little." she said.



Brian sat at the edge of the courtyard and watched Cherry walk to his fiancee and his fiancee's friend. Surprisingly, Alice and Brian never really talked to each other. Their parents would murder them if they ever found out but they were tucked away on an island in the middle of nowhere.
"Cherry dearest~" Brian called out, waving to her.

Bassam's little heart leapt with glee. "Oh! Maybe one day I'll get my smile back," he said, stone faced as ever. He glanced at Cherry walking away and he gave her a nod back, then he saw Brian and looked at Alice with what was supposed to be a quizzical look. "Your acquaintance?"

"One day," Alice answered.
She frowned a little and shook her head. She glanced at the silver necklace she wore around her neck. The ring hanging off there was a stark reminder of the engagement. She bit her lower lip. She didn't want to push Brian away but she couldn't be with him not after that horrible incident. She nodded.
"Yes."
