Your name is Solomon and you are a servant currently serving Vivi D’roix. In the last thread, you learned how to cast [Create Light]. Went to dinner with Vivi & Mercedes to find out that Charles is in the infirmary, also that Vivi wants to meet Marcie. Upon going to the Infirmary you learn that Charles KO'd himself trying to get to class on time...You also lost your chocolate cake.When walking to Mercedes' room you are interrupted on the younger prince, Henrison. After the meeting with him, you went to go find his brother. You found him unconscious in the garden and encountered a strange glowing man who helped you carry him to the academy until Henrison appeared. The two of you took him back to his room. [Younger Prince owes you a favor].You finished reading a book called [Fishing Holes] went on a fisherman/pirate adventure, met a mermaid/siren girl who entrapped you in her buxom. You also got some cool magic.After waking up the next day you met a strange girl named Hilda. Also, you covered for your friend Marcie who was sleeping in the library to check out a book.Previous Thread: >>3331622> [Vivi D’Roix Schedule Friday](Half-Day)[Breakfast @7:00AM][Academics @8:00AM->1:00PM][Free Time Rest of Day]>[QM Schedule]M-F [Maybe an early update?

>Let her borrow the book>"Sure, I don't see why not. I only got it because I've been hearing about it everywhere and wanted to know why it was so popular. Maybe you can tell me about it later."“I don’t mind you borrowing the book, but you have to tell me about why the Bellabona books are so popular that is the only reason why I got it in the first place,” you say.Marcie lets go of the book grabbing your hands and shaking them quickly.“Thank you! Thank you! You’re the best Saul. I’ll tell you all about the Bellabona books,” Marcie says excitedly.“The Bellabona books are mostly meant for girls my age, they are often about love and controversial issues that others may not agree with. They don’t always have happy endings, but the thing about them is that they always are based on a true story,” Marcie says.“Do you want to read some of the books together? I have some time to spend before I have to go see Vivi,” you say.Marcie's face becomes slightly pink after you ask her to read the book with you.“If it’s you, Saul, then I don’t mind reading a little…” Marcie says before scooching closer to you.Marcie opens the book.>[1/2]
>tl;dr version >Boy sees girl >Boy invades private property>Boy tries to escape>Girl Says to waitChapter 1: The BoyLiving in the slums lies a traveling young boy by the name of Ricardo. He has no parents, nowhere to call home, all he has is his trusty backpack full of various knickknacks and his knife that extends into a sword. One day when Ricardo was trying to trade random junk for food, he came across a girl who was being driven by a horse-drawn carriage. She had long blonde hair that reached past her shoulders, her dress was large puffy and pink. Even though Ricardo only saw a glimpse of her, he wanted to meet her in person even if only once. Ricardo chased the carriage.Chapter 2: The MeetingAfter a quick excursion of running along the rooftops, and into several different abodes. Ricardo catches up to the carriage in time to see the girl leaving the carriage and enter the estate. The only problem was how to enter the estate without being detected.After waiting a few days watching the area around the estate, Ricardo enters the establishment via good ole fence climbing strategy. The only thing he didn’t account for is that on the other side of the fence he sees the girl who he was attempting to have a chat with. Obviously, the girl is visibly stricken, when a strange boy enters her personal space all of a sudden.Seeing the situation, the boy has suddenly placed himself in he begins to quickly climb back up the wall in an attempt to escape and pretend the event never happened, but the girl calls out to him telling him to wait and not go. She wanted to talk to him… “That was an interesting first two chapters, my favorite part was when the boy was leaping through different people houses to chase after the carriage,” Marcie says.“I agree, but I did not understand why the second chapter ended so suddenly,” you say.“Bellabona likes to leave cliffhangers in her writing. If the person who is reading takes a break or stop, they can be left in anticipation for the next,” Marcie says.You nod your head.“I have to go pick up a package in town tomorrow Saul, can you come with me to help me carry it? It’s something from my father and I fear that it might be too heavy for me to carry back if we have some time maybe you and I can read the next part,” Marcie says.> “I’ll have to see what Vivi says first, but I think I might be able to help you.”>Say that you have other plans>Write-inSorry about being late, I wasn't ready at 1PM EST like I thought, and taking a nap seemed better at the time.

>>3377565> “I’ll have to see what Vivi says first, but I think I might be able to help you.”>“Also, which book should someone new to the series start out with?”
>>3377734>>3377773>>3377798>“I’ll have to see what Vivi says first, but I think I might be able to help you.”“I’ll have to see what Vivi says first, but I think I might be able to help you,” you say.“Do you always do what Vivi tells you?” Marcie asks.“Not always, but as her servant, it’s my job to do most things that she requests for me to do. Such as right now she probably wants me to meet her academics,” you say.“Oh, alright Saul, let me know later either today or sometime tomorrow what she says. I have to go freshen up, I still am in my clothes from yesterday. You don’t have to clean up the teacups, I’ll pick them up later. I’ll make sure to take good care of the book,” Marcie says as she gets up from the couch.“Which book should someone new to the series start out with?” you ask.“The series doesn’t necessarily have an order, but I recommend reading this one with me first,” Marcie says.Waving goodbye to Marcie as she skips down the hallway towards her room you walk towards where Vivi is taking her academic oriented classes.
[bold] Ding Dong Dong Ding [/bold]You hear the bell ring, but soon after you hear a stampede of footsteps as the door slams open hitting the wall. Stepping quickly to the side with your back pressed against the wall you avoid the stampede of young women rushing to what you assume might be the library. Looks like the Sal the substitute librarian won’t be having a good day after all…You can see Caren lagging behind the large group.Soon you see Vivi and Mercedes leave from the classroom, visibly in shock from the large group of girls.“What was that all about?” Mercedes asks.“Some popular book that came out today, apparently there is only one copy,” you say.“Let’s not worry about that Saul! I want to see Sally again!” Vivi says.“Caren said that she will be joining us later before we head out,” Mercedes says.The three of you walk towards Vivi’s dormitory, Vivi is recounting her time with you when you were a living doll before you became a personal servant. Soon the three of you walk into Vivi’s dormitory.“I want Sally to look exactly like me,” Vivi says as she runs off to her wardrobe."What do you want to use for the PolyInk sweetie? Hair or Blood? We might be out all day so keep that in mind,” Mercedes says.>Hair (3-4 Hours depending on how much hair is cut)>Blood (6-12 Hours depending on how much blood is used)>From Thread#4[“Hair has interesting properties, for some reason, the PolyInk reacts differently to different types of hair, as well as the person. When using hair, the PolyInk considers the size, height, and weight of the person. Turning into a shorter person will cause the potion to last a much longer amount of time maybe twice as long, than an average height person. For Vivi, I’d say about 4 inches of a small clump of hair that fills the palm of your hand, will suffice for about 3-4 hours.Someone who is much more heavyweight will require something more from them if you wish to stay disguised as that form for a longer period. Which brings us to our next topic.Using blood is the most effective way if you want to stay as someone else over a longer period of times. Blood has the same rules and properties as hair does, but because it’s a source coming from the inside the body, it greatly increases the duration of the ink. Squeezing some blood into a vial of ink, will suffice, but I’m unsure how long it will last, a small amount might last 6-12 hours, but it's different from person to person, magic is weird that way,” Mercedes says as she shrugs her shoulders.]
>>3378125>BloodIf we don't have classes tomorrow.>HairIf we do.And isn't Vivi's key going to wear off soon? We should probably redo that if she wants us to look similar for a while.
>>3378236No class tomorrow (Weekend). It fades away next time she bathes, which will be tonight.
>>3378314Another question, then. If she washes off the key, will we have to roll again to get it to show her adult form and risk having her age reverse if we flub it? And if we do it now, can we trace over the previous key?
>>3378386You won't have to roll again, but Mercedes would be the person who would have to do it.
>>3378414Got it. Once she's returned to normal, we'll schedule a time to retrace it and try to learn the spell.
Where is everyone?
>>3378236>BloodGonna write this for now. Since I have the time.
>>3378236>>3377734>>3377773>Blood“Let’s use some blood, just to be safe. Turning back to normal while I’m walking around, or doing another type of activity doesn’t sound like a good idea,” you say.“Good choice, I was worried about that and some other things…” Mercedes says.Vivi comes up from behind Mercedes holding a fluffy red dress, decorated with embroidered flowers, much like the one that she wore on the first day of arriving at the academy.“I want you to wear this Saul, I asked Mercedes to help me find someone to make it my size. I have another that looks just like it!” Vivi says.“Go grab the underwear also, Sally will need that as well,” Mercedes says“Oh yeah! Almost forgot,” Vivi says as she walks back to her wardrobe.“Her underwear as well?” you ask.“Well of course Saul! You’re going to become an exact copy of her, you have to dress the part,” Mercedes says.Vivi comes back with some of her undergarments, placing them on the bed along with her other clothing.“We’ll be drawing blood from you, Vivi. Do you have anything sharp in your room that we can use?” Mercedes asks.Looking under her bed, Vivi pulls her case of knives from under her bed.“I have lot’s of knives I can use!” Vivi says excitedly.“Oh, so you do have knives. I didn’t that they were this close by,” Mercedes says nonchalantly.“You know about her knives?” you ask.“She told me when we were picking classes. I’m ok with it, she told me all about her love for weapons,” Mercedes says.“That’s good to hear,” you say glad that Vivi didn’t mention anything about torturing, cutting, and slicing open animals that are alive and fully awake.“Please be careful when cutting yourself, I wouldn’t want you to get hurt,” you say.“I promise! Sally!” Vivi says.>[1/3]
As Mercedes prepares to draw the PolyInk key, you take off your shirt so that she may have an easier time drawing the key. You watch Vivi cut open her hand allowing some of her blood to drop in the vial of ink. Mercedes then proceeds to warm the ink vial up, the color changes rapidly from yellow then to red and back to black. During Mercedes demonstration, the vial didn’t do that, but Mercedes shrugs her shoulders.“Is it going to hurt?” you ask.“Only a little, depends on the person though…” Mercedes says.Walking over to your back, Mercedes begins to draw the PolyInk key on your back. After she is done she takes a few steps back towards Vivi.“So, when is it supposed to activate?” you ask.“It should have started by now…,” Mercedes says.As soon as Mercedes finishes speaking you clutch your stomach in pain.“Vivi lets’ step out of the room for a few minutes, this part isn’t pretty to look at,” Mercedes says.“What about Saul?” Vivi asks.“Sweetie will be ok,” Mercedes says as she takes Vivi out of the room.Looking at a nearby mirror you see yourself change. You feel you’re a tickling in your scalp as your hair grows out, darkening even further to match Vivi’s long black hair. The bones on your face begin to move and rearrange themselves as they round out into a more woman like shape. For a moment your eyes blur as they turn a ruby-like red.The room around you seemed to grow for a moment as you shrink down, your waist and hips cave in and become more curvaceous. You feel an itch in your chest as you feel the weight of a growing buxom, you did not think about what was happening below your waist.>Blue board.>[2/3]
After thinking that all the effects of the PolyInk are over, you look up at the mirror and see your mistress staring back at you. Looking at your hands you notice that your arms and hands are much thinner and daintier. Touching your face, you feel it much softer much like your time when you were a Rara.Moving over to Vivi’s clothing that she left on her bed, you dress quickly. Dressing Vivi so many times in the past, taught you how to properly dress. Taking in a breath you notice that the air around you seem different, you have Vivi’s [Enhanced Smelling Key] on your key on your shoulder, but your [Enhanced Hearing Key] doesn’t seem to be working as it is completely gone.“Are you ready yet Saul?” you hear Vivi’s say from the door.“You-” you stop yourself from speaking your voice is higher now and sounding exactly like your mistress.“Hello, Solomon. Can you go fetch me some tea, Saaaauuuull,” you say making gest of Vivi’s voice and things she would say.“I’m ready,” you say louder.Vivi runs into the room, seeing an exact copy of her in the room.“Sally is that you?” Vivi asks.“Yes, Vivi I’m back,” you say as Vivi brings you into a large hug.“It really worked!” Vivi says excitedly.“Do you feel strange? Did anything happen?” Mercedes asks as she walks around you.“I no longer have the enhanced hearing. I copied all of Vivi’s keys including the Enhanced smelling, you do smell nice though,” you say.“Thank you swee- Sally. I see that you copied her future self-key as well, I was wonder what version of Vivi you would change into. I rarely used the key and never on anyone who had a key on them, so I was curious about the effects,” Mercedes says.You feel a little light-headed as your stomach begins to rumble.“I haven’t eaten at all today. All I’ve had is some tea,” you say.“Let’s go eat then! To the dining hall,” Vivi proclaims raising her hand.“People might think it’s weird that there are two Vivi D’roix’s let’s call for a servant and eat here,” Mercedes says.“Many of the servants aren’t working today, finding one will be difficult,” you say.“Well, can you hold on to eat until we go to town?” Mercedes asks.>Eat at the Dining Hall>Find Caren, and go to town>Write-in[3/3]

>>3379107>Find Caren, and go to townSo let me get this straight.Vivi is in her normal self but we look like if we had the future key on, right?
>>3379653You & Vivi are both look like "Future Key Vivi".I'm writing at 9PM EST, unless I oversleep from my nap so expect a later update time.
>>3379152>>3379159>>3379226>>3379334>>3379335>>3379653>Find Caren and go to Town“I think I can hold on till we go to town. I only feel a little light-headed,” you say.“Great! Now, all we must do is find Caren,” Mercedes says.“I think we’ll find her near the library, I saw her running over there earlier,” you say.Vivi pulls on your hand.“Let’s go, Sally!” Vivi says excitedly.Leaving Vivi’s dormitory the larger weight on your chest makes it slightly more difficult to walk around. After a few minutes, you are able to correct your posture by holding on to Vivi for balance. Soon you arrive at the library, unlike earlier this morning there is a large crowd of people, many of them are huddled near the front desk. You can see Sal the substitute librarian, getting yelled at by many people, mostly women.“How are we going to find Caren?” you ask.“I saw her when we were walking inside, she is sitting by the table with her head down,” Mercedes says pointing at a table slightly far from the huddled masses.The three of you walk over to Caren.“Hello, Caren,” you and Vivi say at the same time.Caren looks up at your group, then rubs her eyes to make sure she is not seeing double…but she is.“What did you do this time Mercedes?” Caren asks.“This is our friend Sally, she will be joining us today on our excursion to town today,” Mercedes says.Trying to keep up with the act you bring your hand out to Caren to shake.“Hi Caren, my name is Sally D’roix. Vivi’s Twin sister it’s nice to meet you,” you say.Caren shakes your hand.“You are Solomon aren’t you?” Caren says.“No no no, today is Solomon’s day off. Today he is Sally…” you say as you realize you gave away the secret.“Hello Sally, it’s a pleasure to meet your acquaintance. Do you mind telling me how this happened?” Caren asks.“We used a mixture of alchemy and magic for me to look exactly like Vivi…In every single way,” you say.“If you want, I can do something similar to you if you want, Caren?” Mercedes says.“No it's fine, I rather not. Let’s just go to town, this whole trip to the library was a waste. The substitute librarian gave the book away to someone before the library even opened,” Caren says looking frustrated and tired.>[1/2]
Thankfully today there were several drivers ready to take students to the nearby town, which also happened to be the capital, “Uramel”. The capital city is famous for being a major hub for various trading companies. As well as having multiple events happening throughout every day due to the number of people passing through the city every day. The city has several waterways allowing ships to pass through, to more easily transport goods and services. Soon your group arrives in the city.>[Current time 2:30 PM]“To be sure we don’t get lost, we should have a buddy system,” Caren says.“Buddy system?” Vivi asks.“It means you don’t leave your ‘buddy’ ever and make sure they don’t do anything dumb,” Caren says.“Oh, in that case, I want Sally to be my partner,” Vivi says as she hugs your arm tightly.Caren shakes her head, as she stares at the two of you.“It’s so weird seeing double, I’m not used to it,” Caren says.“I think its sort of cute. Sweetie looks adorable even though he looks just like Vivi,” Mercedes says.Your conversation is interrupted when you hear someone yelling to the north of you.“Come and join our weekly scavenger hunt sponsored by the Blue Moon Inn! Top Prize is a coupon for free lunch or dinner,” you hear a man say.“We should join!” says Vivi excitedly.“I’m really hungry though,” you say.“If we win its free and it will be fun,” Vivi says.“I agree Vivi it’ll be a fun activity to start off the day, you can eat later Sau- Sally,” Caren says.The four of you sign up in teams for the scavenger hunt in teams of 2. There are three items you have to find and bring it back before time ends or another team brings the items back first:[Which do you go after first?]>A box containing various food related goods, found near the piers>A candle from a fancy restaurant>Bread from a church

>>3381779>>3381776>>3381332>>3381609>70>90You and Vivi decide to start the scavenger hunt by looking for food near the piers.“Sally, I’m so glad that you decided to come and visit me,” Vivi says.“Anything to make you happy Vivi,” you respond back.“What is it like being me? Or…being Sally, much different than when we were younger right?” Vivi asks.“Well when we were younger I was your living doll, there wasn’t much I could do at the time. I have more freedom now even though it seems you and Mercedes took it up another level,” you say."I still really appreciate you doing so Saul, it means a lot," Vivi says calling you by your real nickname.Soon the two of you reach the piers, breathing in the air two of you can smell various things such as fish, sea water, more fish, but something that throws you off is the distinct smell of cooked food (70/90). Near the piers is a sit-down family restaurant, they're serving braised parakeet crab cakes. Organic, of course.“They smell really good Sally,” Vivi says.“I know they do, why don’t we just give up on the scavenger hunt and eat here instead,” you suggest.“No. We’re doing the scavenger hunt, didn’t you want to go to the Blue Moon Inn anyways?” Vivi says grabbing your shoulders.“Yes I did…” you say.“Good, now let’s try really hard to find the box of food. It shouldn’t be too hard right? With our enhanced sniffing, we can find it!” Vivi says.“Smelling,” you say correcting her.Once again using your enhanced smelling you and Vivi smell for anything that may seem out of the ordinary on a pier full of seafood. Soon the two of you quickly catch on to a scent of a man carrying a box that it is titled ‘Blue Moon Inn Products’ (70/90).“Hello young ladies, are the two of you here for the scavenger hunt?” the man asks.“Yes, we are,” you and Vivi say in unison.“Y-you are the first two to arrive here, so good luck on the rest of the hunt,” the man says startled by your copy of actions.Vivi is bouncing around excitingly about being the first to arrive.“Can you tell us the relative location of the church or the fancy restaurant?” you ask.“If you look behind me you can see a large white tower, that is the church. Near where you started the hunt there are several fancy restaurants that may be willing to give away a candle,” the man says.>Go to the Church>Go to the ResturantI'll be here to write & update for a while.
>>3382778>>Go to the Resturant

>>3382807>>3382962>Go to the Resturant“Let’s go to the restaurant. We can drop off the box near the beginning and I can try to get one of the candles from the nearby restaurants,” you say.You and Vivi carry the box of food back together. Along the way the two of you get several stares by those passing by, seeing identical twins doesn’t seem to be too common. Nearby there are several high-end restaurants.“I can carry the box the rest of the way Sally, I’ll come find you at one of these restaurants,” Vivi says.“Are you sure you can carry it on your own?” you ask.“I’m sure I can carry it, I’m just as strong as you. Besides it’s not that far from here” Vivi says hefting the box in her two arms.“Alright, but if you can’t find me stay where we started and I’ll find you there,” you say.Separating from Vivi for a moment you enter one of the high-end restaurants nearby.“Hello, Ma’am welcome to ‘Seven Stars Grand Lake’. Will you two be the only one dining today?” the lady at the front asks.“Two?” you say.“Yes, Ma’am just us two for now,” you hear a familiar voice say from behind.Turning around you see Charles with his fingers raised, he is grinning happily at you.“Come with me,” the woman attending the front of the house motioning you and Charles to follow.“Come with sit down with me for a moment Vivi I want to talk to you about something,” Charles says.Having no real choice in the matter you follow Charles and the woman to a table. The two of you sit down, looking at Charles he has a serious expression on his face. Something is off about him. Also, he thinks you are Vivi and not Solomon.“What can I start you two lovebirds of with?” the woman asks.“L-Love bir-” you say, but are cut off short by Charles.“For now we’ll just like a glass of water,” Charles says.“Two glasses of water…I’ll be right back with that,” the woman writes on her notepad as she leaves.“Where is Rena,” you ask.“She is at the local church praying, for me,” Charles says.“Is there something troubling you Charles?” you ask.“You look really good today Vivi, that’s good….” Charles says.“Well I wouldn’t want to not look good,” you say awkwardly.“I’d like you to introduce you to my father, he should be arriving shortly. I’d like you to be there.” Charles says.“Why is he coming?” you ask.“He is coming to speak to me about taking the course for [Digging Holes], most likely. I’m hoping that with your presence nearby it will quell his anger. I’d really appreciate it.” Charles says.>Stay for with Charles to meet his father>Leave Charles and Continue the Scavenger hunt>Write-in

Let me go tell them where I’ll be first. I’ll be right back.” you say getting up from your seat.“Alright then, hurry back quickly!” Charles says.You stop at the front desk and ask them to give you a candle, they look at you and say "Blue Moon Inn?". A quick nod is all they need before the man at the desk hands you a candle..."Tourists" you hear the man say. You quickly leave the restaurant and begin to run towards where Vivi is probably waiting for you. You find it harder to run with Vivi’s body. While she is maybe more athletic than you are, the unfamiliar weight on your chest and wearing a dress makes running a more difficult task. Soon you catch up with Vivi, you’re slightly out of breath. You also feel a little dizzy from not eating.“Are you ok Sally? Did someone try to hurt you?” Vivi asks.Placing your hand on Vivi’s shoulder you take a moment to catch your breath and recover.“I’m alright Vivi. I need you to do something for me though,” you say.“What is it?” Vivi asks.“I need you to go to the restaurant I was just at, and introduce yourself to Charles’s father,” you say.“W-what? Charles's father? Why? What happened?” Vivi asks.“When I went to get the candle, Charles was behind me and got us a table for two,” you say.“You went on a date with Charles?!” Vivi says excitedly.“I’m not- you are not on a date with Charles. He told me he wants to introduce you to his father, I think this would be a good chance for you to know him better. His family is very important and can help you become the next royal executioner,” you say.“Are you sure? I think you would do better in talking to his father than me,” Vivi says sulking..“This is something that you should do Vivi, not me. I know you can do it,” you say trying to give her confidence.“I’ll do it…if anything happens I still got you right…Sally?” Vivi asks.“Yes of course. Now go to the ‘Seven Stars Grand Lake’ restaurant Charles is waiting for you,” you say.>[1/2]
You give Vivi a good luck hug before she leaves. From where you currently are you can see the large tower in the distance. This time you make sure to walk normally as you make your way towards the church to fetch the bread. On the way, you say various ‘free-market’ stalls selling different objects. Some books, food, a rose-shaped necklace, and some other food related items pique your interest. Advancing your pace you arrive at the church. Looking up close you find it difficult to see the top of the church’s tower.There are several people hanging around the church, handing out flyers to those walking nearby. A woman comes up to you with a flyer.“Hello Ma’am your face looks new; would you like to join the Axes Church? Isn't it absolutely beautiful? Oh, I wish I could live here in the church its self,” the woman asks.“No, thank you I’m just here to get some bread for a scavenger hunt I’m doing,” you say.“Bread blessed from our beloved lord and savior? Come right in young one, take a bite from his body and be filled with his everlasting love,” the woman says as she motions you inside.“Uhh…Yes, I’ll go do that,” you say as you slowly walk away from the woman and walk inside the church.The inside of the church is just as large as it was from the outside. The main entrance has a large baptismal font, to the left and right there are several lit candles as well as corridors leading to different rooms. Closing your eyes for a moment you can smell some freshly baked bread, you try to follow the sweet aroma, realizing that your hunger is getting to you. Sadly, it stops abruptly when you bump into someone. Opening your eyes, you see Rena.“Sorry for running into you Rena,” you apologize giving her a curtsey.“Please watch where you are walking Mistress D’Roix,” Rena says.“Where is Solomon? I always see him walking around you,” Rena asks.“Uh, today is Saul’s day off he wanted to sleep all day,” you say.“Oh, I see…I wish I had days off. Alas with Charles I don’t think that will be happening in the future. If only he was more like his father…If I may ask, what do you think of Charles?” Rena says.>“I love Charles, I think he is the absolute cutest angel I’ve ever met. I want to cuddle him all day.”>“Charles is very nice and kind.”>Write-in[2/2]
>>3385314>“Charles is very nice and kind. And admittedly quite cuddly.”>”What about you? You seem very... protective... of him. Do you see him as a younger brother?”
>>3385451>>3385669>“Charles is very nice and kind. And admittedly quite cuddly.”>”What about you? You seem very... protective... of him. Do you see him as a younger brother?”You try to give off your best impression of Vivi, which shouldn’t be too hard since you are her. You clasp your hands together and bring them close to your chest.“Well…Charles is very nice and kind… and admittedly quite cuddly,” you say surprising yourself on how much you sound like Vivi when she is talking about Charles.“What about you? You seem very…protective… of him. Do you seem him as a younger brother?” you ask.“A younger brother? Do you think I’m another Solomon?” Rena asks scoffingly as she takes out a cigarette.“I’m twice your age probably so don’t look at me weird. My job is to make sure Master Charles makes the right decisions for his future and help guide him along the way just as like my mother did with his father. The decisions he makes affect my standing as a servant, if his father sees me as unfit to work I will be out of the job. I’m sure the same is for Solomon,” Rena says.“I think Saul is doing a fine job taking care of me, I wouldn’t let my father take him away from me,” you say.“To be blunt Miss D’roix I don’t approve of you being around Charles, your mannerisms and your general disposition is much to unfavorable for him. As well as your relationship between servant and master I do not approve of. Something about the two of you throws me of…you also seem different today,” Rena says.“Well…I…,” you say looking at the ground looking for words that are not coming to mind; somewhat flustered at Rena’s words unsure of what to say or of how Vivi would respond.“It’s fine I spoke out of line you can forgive me if you’d like to at another time. I have to go and see Charles now. Give Solomon my regards,” Rena says as she leaves.>[1/2] (Character Limit)
Once more you follow the aroma leading towards the delicious bread, but this time with your eyes open. Not allowing your stomach to think before your head. You reach the kitchen of the church stepping inside you can see a tall man with short white hair, he is wearing a dirty apron. The headmaster is cooking bread inside of the church, he turns around noticing your presence.“Hello there, Miss D’Roix. Welcome to the Axes church’s kitchen what do I owe the pleasure of meeting you here today?” Ozma asks.“H-how do you know who I am?” you ask.“I know all the students who come to my academy at some level,” Ozma says.“I just came here for some bread, I’m having a scavenger hunt for the Blue Moon Inn, and bread from a church is on the list. What are you doing here sir?” you ask.“Ah yes, the famous Blue Moon Inn scavenger hunt popular among those looking for a quick bite to eat and tourists. I’m cooking bread for an old friend of mine, she needed some help…also cooking is one of my personal hobbies. I have extra bread to spare before mass today. You seem troubled about something, do you wish to speak about it?” Ozma asks.>Stay and speak about what Rena said?>Thank the headmaster for his concern but, take the bread and go find Vivi.
>>3385870>Stay and speak about what Rena said?
>>3385881>>3385891Such fast responses makes me happy. ‧º·(˚ ˃̣̣̥˂̣̣̥ )‧º·˚ I'm writing.
>>3385881>>3385891>>Stay and speak about what Rena said?“Sure if you’d like to listen,” you say.“It’s my job to listen to what my students say, come sit,” Ozma says beckoning you to sit on a nearby stool.You walk over to the headmaster as he takes a seat. You dust off the seat and try to sit properly not wanting to get Vivi’s dress dirty with bread-dust or draw curious attention towards yourself.“Now tell me what’s troubling you,” Ozma asks.“Well…” you say not really sure of how to start off your sentence.“There is this boy named Charles, he is also a student and he has a servant named Rena. She said that she doesn’t ‘approve’ of me being around him and that my relationship with my own servant Saul is strange,” you say.“Tell me Miss D’roix are you fond of Charles?” Ozma asks.“…Well of course I am! He is really cute and cuddly,” you say repeating what you said to Rena earlier.“What do you know of Charles?” Ozma asks again.“Well…I…know he likes outdoor activities and he’s very knowledgeable on plants,” you say.“Is that all?” Ozma questioning you once more.“He can be nice and kind, but maybe around someone of importance he is more serious,” you say recalling Charles and his serious tone when wanting to introduce you to his father.“I suggest you try to get to know more about Charles, maybe as much as you know with your servant Solomon. It’s not my place to say but, your relationship with your servant is perfectly fine and healthy. There are secrets or things that you keep to yourself, but only tell Solomon correct?”You nod your head slowly.“What I’m trying to say is, get to know Charles first, learn about him, ask him questions. [blue] The more you get to know a person, the more attractive they become to you. Because everything you see on the inside of them, suddenly you are able to see on the outside of them. [/blue]“Thank you, headmaster,” you say.“Please, call me Ozma or ‘The Baker’,” Ozma says.“…thank you The Baker, you helped me out,” you say giggling at the funny nickname.Ozma hands you a small loaf of bread wrapped around in brown paper, the succulent aroma wafting off of it smells like hazelnut. You find it hard to stop yourself from chowing down on it.“I have to get back to work, these loaves of bread aren’t going to bake themselves,” Ozma says.>Go find Vivi?>Try to find Rena and tell her "that you want to try and get to know Charles better?"
>Picture with Post
>>3385973Try to find Rena and tell her "that you want to try and get to know Charles better?"Pretty sure this isn't what Rena wants to hear, but it's best we intercept her before she barges in on the meeting between Vivi and Charles. Also, she wouldn't like seeing 2 Vivi's.
>>3385973>Try to find Rena and tell her "that you want to try and get to know her better?"Truth be told, if she's going to keep being suspicious of us, we'd be better off getting to know her first to get to Charles.
>>3385992>>3385998You can do a write-in to say something else to Rena if you'd like? I meant to leave [Write-in] as an option.[I have to stop writing for about 30 minutes to do some personal things, I'll be back].
>>3386010>"Well, listen, Rena, maybe if you'd just tell Saul why exactly you don't want me to get so close to Charles, he'd be willing to hear you out, and that way he'll stop pressuring me to act more ladylike to find a prospective husband. We both know that you've been glaring holes through him since we all met, and it'd be simpler just to tell him why, rather then hoping he gets a clue or learns telepathy."
Rolled 9, 33, 27 = 69 (3d100)I'm rolling for Team Caren & Mercedes.
>>3386038>>3385992Leaving the church holding the loaf of bread safely in your arms you decide that is best to try and find Rena. You want to hear from her why exactly she doesn’t want Vivi to get close to Charles. Since you were near her recently you try to follow a scent similar to what she smelled like when you bumped into her. Thankfully you see her moving at a snail’s pace back towards the restaurant and are able to catch up to her quickly.“Hey Rena!” you say trying to catch her attention.She turns around at the sound of your voice, she is looking at you with an annoyed expression.“Hello, Miss D’Roix what do I owe the pleasure of seeing you again?” Rena asks.“Since you won’t speak to me, maybe you can speak to Saul instead the next time you see him. You are both servants speaking to each other about your masters shouldn’t be too difficult?” you say.“Talk to him about what?” Rena asks."Well, listen, Rena, maybe if you'd just tell Saul why exactly you don't want me to get so close to Charles, he'd be willing to hear you out. That way he'll stop pressuring me to act more ladylike to find a prospective husband. We both know that you've been glaring holes through him since we all met, he tells me all the time about it. It'd be simpler just to tell him why, rather than hoping he gets a clue or learns telepathy," you say trying to use a reasonable tone of voice.You take a moment to breathe. “He just wants the best for me,” you say.“….” Rena doesn’t look you in the eye for a few moments.“I’ll speak with Solomon if that’s how he really feels,” Rena says.Rena turns away from you and walks away saying nothing more.>[1/2]
You walk back to the beginning of the scavenger hunt, avoiding the high-end restaurant distract to avoid a run-in with Charles and possibly Vivi. Charles’s father or Rena seeing two Vivi’s would most likely lead to a lot of explaining and bad consequences. Nearing the start, you can see Caren and Mercedes looking sad and defeated (33).“What’s wrong,” you ask.“We gave up trying to find the box with food. Apparently, there was a man near the box, but Caren and I were only able to see gruffly old sailors walking around. Also, another team arrived before you did. I see that you have the candle and bread, in hand.” Mercedes says.“Vivi and I were able to find it rather quickly due to being able to smell it,” you say.“That’s cheating! The two of you sniffed out like guard dogs,” Caren says.“Beautiful guard dogs,” you respond back.“Speaking of which, where is Vivi? Or are you Vivi and pretending to be Sally?” Mercedes asks.“Sally is with-” you are interrupted by a squeeze from behind.“Hi Sally! Did we win?” Vivi asks."So you are Sally...hmmm?" Mercedes says.“Let’s turn it in any way, maybe there is a consolation prize?” Vivi asks.You walk up to the man running the scavenger hunt and hand him the bread and candle.“Sadly ladies, another team won the scavenger hunt before you arrived, but fret not for there is a prize for second place. The Blue Moon will look the other way for those too young to drink” the man says handing you a coupon.>[All you can drink for 1 hour Wine & Beer]“Well, at least we won something right?” Vivi says.“Too bad it’s-”>Roll a d20

>>3386197>>3386202>20>[Current Time: 5:00 PM]“Too bad it’s-” you stop yourself short taking a step towards Vivi. You almost fainted onto her, but by sheer willpower, you keep your self-awake and conscious.“A-are you ok Sally?” Vivi asks holding your hand.“I’m not alright, I almost fainted from not eating anything today. I’ve done lots of running and walking around,” you say leaning on to Vivi for support.“You’ve not eaten anything at all?!” Caren exclaims.“Not even the bread we got from the scavenger hunt,” you say.Mercedes walks over to the man who ran the scavenger hunt, he is handing out a consolation prize for the team that came in third place.“Excuse me, sir, can you direct us to the Blue Moon Inn? My friend is in desperate need of something to eat,” Mercedes asks.“Why of course young lady, if you look behind me the Blue Moon Inn is right in front of you,” the man says motioning to behind him.After Mercedes facepalms herself she beckons the three of you over to come inside. The inside of The Blue Moon Inn is a popular location for those who are traveling to visit. The first floor has a check-in for those customers who are coming to lodge. Additionally, on the first floor is the Blue Moon Inn restaurant, it is very popular due to its good food and service. A waitress services the four of you as you sit down at a table.“Our specials for today are Southern Tomato Pie, Hushpuppies, and Pork Ribs. What can I start you ladies out for today?” the waitress says.“ANYTHING!” you yell at the waitress.“What she means is that she will take the Pork Ribs, and anything you can bring to us immediately,” Vivi says patting you on the back.“I’ll have the Southern Tomato Pie,” Mercedes says.“Extra Pork Ribs, please,” Caren says.“I’ll have whatever she is getting,” Vivi says pointing at you.“Ok! I’ll be right back with those items and some water,” the waitress says.“Here let me distract you from your stomach Sally, is there anything, in particular, you did during the scavenger hunt?” Caren asks.>Tell the story about Charles>Tell the story about the Headmaster>Write-in[Last update, for now, I'll say when I'm writing again]
>>3386284>Tell the story about the HeadmasterI doubt Charles will appreciate is telling Every one about the conflict with his father. Also it's a good thing we got Vivi to meet his dad instead of Sally, considering Ozma's words. I really hope Vivi/Charles becomes a thing in the future.
>>3386284>Tell the story about the Headmaster
Not sure if I can update today. I'm feeling really tired(long day), but If I wake up later and feel up to writing I'll write. Sorry for any inconvenience. I'm thinking of writing an Omake at the end of thread not sure. We'll see...

>>3386284>Why not both
Update will be at 4:30 PM ish? It's 2/3'rds done, but I have class/tutoring 2-4PM EST.
>>3386319>>3386320>>3387725>>3387787>Tell the story about the Headmaster“When I went to the church to get the bread, you wouldn’t believe who I saw,” you say.“Who?” Vivi asks.“I saw the headmaster cooking bread in a dirty apron,” you say.“You met the headmaster at the church? Why was he cooking bread?” Mercedes asks.“He told me he was cooking bread for a friend, but we had a talk and sat down. He’s really nice,” you say.“Why did he have a talk with you Sally?” Vivi asks“Well…before I met the headmaster I bumped into Rena by accident. I didn’t see her coming because I was to focused on the bread that was cooking rather than where I was walking. She asked me what I liked about Charles…” you say.Vivi grabs your hand to bring your attention directly towards her.“What did you say, Saul?” Vivi asks seriously.“You have nothing to worry about. I said…that Charles was nice and kind, also very cuddly,” you say.Caren and Mercedes burst out laughing at you calling Charles cuddly, but they soon stop when they see Vivi hugging you.“Thank you, Sally you’re the best fake sister I could ask for,” Vivi says.“Of course, it's my job to make sure that you stay happy,” you say.“If anything, you can both be Charles’s wives,” Caren suggests.“Yes! That would be so cute! I can see it now, Sweetie and Vivi marrying Charles on their wedding day,” Mercedes says teasingly.“No. I don’t like that idea at all,” you say.“I was only joking, but you make a good Sally,” Caren responds back.“What happened next?” Vivi asks.“She told me that she didn’t approve of you being around Charles, I was at a loss of words. After the talk with the headmaster, she agreed to speak with ‘Solomon’ next time she sees him,” you say.>[1/2]
The waitress comes up to the table interrupting your conversation.“Alright ladies your food is here,” the waitress says as she passes out the food.“Who ordered the Southern Tomato Pie?”“I did,” Mercedes says.“The Extra Pork Ribs?”“That would be me,” Caren says.“For the lovely twins here are your pork ribs doused in barbeque sauce, along with our famous chips on the side. If you need anything else, please don’t bother to ask,” the waitress says as she leaves your table.Finally, after several hours of doing various tasks and skipping breakfast and lunch, you can finally eat your food. You are unsure if it was because of how famous the Blue Moon’s food was or if it was how focused you were on the food presented in front of you was. Was the smell coming off the food enhancing your appetite? It didn’t matter as you ate everything on your plate, like cleaning Vivi’s bloodstains out of sheets when her father is coming to make sure everything is ok. Eventually, you finish everything on your plate and clean your face with a nearby napkin.Looking up from your plate, you are surprised to see that you the last one to have finished eating.“Did you enjoy your meal, Sally?” Vivi asks.“It was delicious…Vivi?”>[2/3](Because of Character Count).
“Yes, Sally?” Vivi asks“Can you go to the restroom with me?” you ask.“Uh…sure,” Vivi says.The two of you get up and begin to walk to the restroom. Caren’s mouth is open in disbelief and Mercedes has her hands in her face. You enter the restroom with Vivi.“I-I trust you to go on your own Sally,” Vivi says.“It’s not that, its something about that. Well, I do have to do that… , but I have to tell you something that the Headmaster told me first!” you say.“What did he say?” Vivi asks.“He told me the more you get to know a person, the more attractive they become to you. Because everything you see on the inside of them, suddenly you are able to see on the outside of them. I know I been pressuring you to act more ladylike so you can get a good husband and achieve your dream of becoming an executioner. I want to try and support you harder than before if you want to chase after Charles,” you say.“That’s really sweet of the headmaster to say that. Charles’s father was very nice, he fully supported Charles’s decision for taking [Digging Holes]. Apparently, they are old friends when they were younger, and they joked about making a class based on digging holes. I think I behaved well when he introduced me to his father, I didn't do anything that would throw him off (73). What happens if Charles doesn’t work out?” Vivi asks worriedly.“Well least you still have Sally, right?” you say jokingly.“Sally is best,” Vivi says happily.After doing your business and washing up. You and Vivi return to the table. Caren and Mercedes are silent when you sit back down. Vivi speaks up quickly.“Why don’t we order those drinks with the coupon? Or order dessert?” Vivi asks.>Use the Coupon & Order Free Drinks!>Order Chocolate Cake!>Order a Rocky Tumble with a hint of cheese (You overheard rumor about this last thread)

>Order a Rocky Tumble with a hint of cheese (You overheard rumor about this last thread)“Excuse me waitress!” you say calling the waitress over.“Yes?”“I’d like to order a Rocky Tumble with a hint of cheese please," you say smiling.“Excuse Me?” the waitress asks.“I said, I’d like to order a Rocky Tumble with a hint of cheese,” you say speaking up.Some of the conversations at the other tables stop speaking when they overhear your order. Before resuming, but much quieter than before. The waitress is looking at you and your party before bowing.“Please wait a moment esteemed master, allow me to speak with the boss,” the waitress says before leaving.“What did you order?” Mercedes asks.“I’m not sure…I heard someone saying to order a ‘Rocky Tumble’, but I don’t know why she reacted like that," you say.The waitress comes up to your table again, along with another man.“The boss will see you now. Only the duplicates may follow, please don’t make a scene,” the man says referring to you and Vivi. “The boss wants to meet us! Maybe we’ll get another coupon,” Vivi says innocently.“I’m not so sure about that, but let’s hear what he has to say,” you say.Not wanting to cause trouble you get up from your chair with Vivi. Vivi is holding your hand swinging them back and forth. The man leads the two of you into a back room past the kitchen. Entering a room there is a man with short black hair slicked behind him. He is wearing a black business suit, on his decks are several books and a cat. The cat’s fur is red with its tail splitting in two at the end.“Hello, ladies. You are from Uramel Academy yes?” the man at the desk ask“Yes, we are,” both you and Vivi say in unison.The man smirks at your answer, opening a drawer from his desk he takes out a crimson red vial placing it on the table in front of him. You could have sworn you just saw the contents inside swirl around on its own.“I wasn’t aware your friend was going to send someone to pick up the package, especially not beautiful twins such as yourself. Hide the vial somewhere when you go back inside, and don’t make eye contact with anyone,” the man says.>“Excuse me, sir. There’s been a misunderstanding, we don’t know what you are talking about.”>Reach out for the vial, but instead pet the cat instead?>Take the vial and leave, saying nothing.>Write-in

You reach out for the vial but when you place your hand on top of the vial the man reaches out to grab your hand. Pulling you closer to the desk. The sudden motion startles you releasing a girly cry. The man brings his face closer to you, his blue pupils are shaped like a crescent moon up close.“Come by again with something of value, the Blue Moon might be willing to trade. Don’t worry everyone gets a second chance…” the man says he lets you go.You quickly grab the vial and Vivi’s hand holding it tightly. While the man’s clothing seems respectable his hidden guise shows something else. The man is somewhat creepy and off-putting, someone you don't want to mess with. You place the Vial between your breasts and begin to lead Vivi outside the room. The man calls out to you two as you leave the door.“Next time order the Blue Moon Salad with a Hint of Wine if you wish to visit again. Also if you are willing to have a private one on one or two on one service whichever you prefer please don’t hesitate to visit,” the man says as you leave the doorway.Holding Vivi’s hand you make your way back to Caren and Mercedes they look worried.“What happened? You look like really frightened,” Mercedes says.“Let’s not talk about it let’s just get the check and leave,” you say.“Leave? What about our drinks!” Caren says as she crosses her arms pouting.>Leave the Blue Moon Inn. (Return to the Academy) or (Stay in Town Longer) [Pick one if you vote to leave]>Order Drinks?

>>3393974>>3393983>>3394321>>3394338>Leave the Blue Moon Inn.>(Return to the Academy)“Trust me, Caren, we need to leave like now,” you say.Motioning over to the waitress you make a hand gesture that you want the check for the meal. The woman comes over to your table and tells you that the food was paid by another table. Looking over to the table you see a group of boys wearing Uramel Academy uniforms waving and smiling at your group. You quickly get up from the table. Vivi is still holding your hand for some reason, you are unsure as to why. Soon the four of you leave the restaurant and begin making your way to find one of the drivers that will take you back to the academy.“Mind telling us what happened?” Mercedes asks.“Sally and I followed the man who came to our table with the waitress and led us to a back room, where there was another person. I’m guessing he was the boss of the restaurant. There was this really cute cat in the room also, I wanted to pet it,” Vivi says.“He thought we were there to pick up a package, for someone at the academy…I didn’t feel safe around the man nor did I want any trouble with him. I don’t know what he would have done to Vivi and me,” you say.Vivi hugs your arm, trying to comfort you.“So, what happened next,” Mercedes asks.“I took the package and hid them in my breasts seeing how I don’t have any pockets in this dress. I’ll show you what it is when we arrive at the academy. It feels somewhat cold to touch,” you say.“You just stole it?!” Mercedes exclaims.“I didn’t steal it, I just took it because it seemed normal at the time. Best way to get out of the situation I thought,” you say.>[1/2](Cause of character count)
Soon enough as you finish your words a scheduled driver comes by to pick your party up and take you back to the academy. Mercedes and Caren are talking amongst themselves about alchemy and the properties that lie in certain magical creatures such as Murtlaps. Vivi is sitting rather close to you.“Why are you still holding on to my hand Vivi?” you ask.“I was holding on because you never let go. I thought we were going to get a coupon, not some secret package that was meant for someone else. I got scared when the man pulled you closer and you gave a short scream. I’m glad that you are ok,” Vivi says.A few minutes later you are back on the academy grounds there are some activities going around campus at this hour (Time: 7:30 PM). There is ‘Night Show in the Garden’ also the ‘Knitting Club’ is having some type of big reveal.“Can you show us what the big deal was now?” Caren asks.“Sure,” you say.Reaching into your breasts you pull out the crimson red vial, holding it up close to your face you can see it move in a circular motion.“What do you think it is Vivi,” asks.“If you don’t mind can I borrow it to examine it? I’ll take good care of it!” Caren says excitedly.>Let Caren Borrow It?>Hold on to it for now?---Also:>Visit one of the events?

Maybe tomorrow I’m sure he is tired from baking bread all day, maybe sometime tomorrow if I have time,” you suggest.“I might be busy tomorrow with independent studying, but if you catch me at a good time I’ll tag along with you,” Caren says.You place the vial back in your breasts for safe keeping, well as safe as it's going to get…“There are some events on campus, I’m interested in seeing what the knitting club has in store,” Mercedes says.“I’m going to see if I can meet up with a girl from my alchemy class, I wanted to discuss with her the properties on some of the plants that are grown in the garden,” Caren says.“What do you want to do Vivi?” you ask.“…I want to do that certain thing that we sometimes do. I want to do it while you’re still Sally,” Vivi says smiling.“Oh, that thing…Ok, let's go do it then, I guess," you say.“What thing? Are you talking about?” Caren asks.“It’s just a personal thing, we sometimes clean the room together,” you say giving a poor excuse.“Well alright then… until next time Sally,” Caren says as she waves you and the group goodbye.“Come find me at the knitting club or in my room if you need anything Sweetie,” Mercedes says as she skips towards the academy.You turn to Vivi she has a giant grin on her face.“You want to kill the Murtlap I’m guessing?” you ask.Vivi nods her head.>[1/2]
>[Time Skip to the room]You pull the box containing the Murtlap from underneath the bed. Vivi gathers her various knives and hands one of them to you. It has a tiny red bow on the handle. You place the box on the bed opening it to reveal the Murtlap tied up and with its mouth sealed shut to prevent any bites. It smells like fish that’s been out in the sun too long.“This is one of my favorite knives. You can be the first one to do the cut, stab, or slash the rat,” Vivi says.You have second thoughts about going along with Vivi’s plan to kill something together, but you already promised her that you would. Taking the knife in hand you stab the Murtlap in its stomach, the animal is scurrying in place as it can not move to be tied up. The knife slides in easy enough with little to no resistance. Blood leaks from the Murtlap's stomach the scent that it gives of fills your nostril. It smells like a mixture of seawater & blood mixed together. Looking over to Vivi she is smiling looking for your reaction for stabbing the creature.Do you feel?>Excited? Happy?>Neutral?>Disgusted? Sorrowful?>Write-in?[2/2]I was asked if I wanted to go home early. I left so fast.
>>3396518Depressed. It basically reminds us that our job is forfeit if we can't get her to stop, that our LIFE is forfeit if she moves on to people, and that the unlucky Murtlap just reminds you about your past as an orphan, being easy prey for bigger, meaner orphans and thugs. Plus, even if she gets past it, who knows if she'll relapse and stab a suitor, or worse yet, if she does get married and have a child, what she might do to them...
>>3396700Oh, and add with that the horrible, terrible thought that one day, if she doesn't get past her sadism and love for unwilling victims, that one day we might wake up in the same position as that Murtlap, bound up and gagged as a knife slowly descends towards our eye, wielded by someone who we saw as a friend and the little sister we never had.

>>3397020Reread the first and second threads, anon.> The daughter of an old noble line of executioners. Coming from such family, she managed to develop some dangerously sadistic tendencies. You might as well be the only thing that keeps her from murdering someone or something.>"Er-- Nothing, I was just wondering why you look s-so... huggable," replied Vivi. You notice how her eyes scan Charles, one with a very, very familiar manner. A predator's.>A second time does Vivi whisper to you, "H-His hair and skin is soft-- purely delicious and white. W-Would it be possible to kidnap him? He would definitely fit inside a moderately sized sack."She has a problem. She likes hurting and killing small animals, and there's decent chance that, if we focus on getting her hooked up with Charles, she might turn her attentions onto him, with less then pleasant results.
>>3397084>>3397020>>3396984[Red] Depressed [/Red]You hoped that stabbing the Murtlap you would understand Vivi and her pleasure for torturing and killing small creatures for fun, but the results were obvious. Seeing the rat-like creature struggle in its binds as it begins to bleed out makes you feel depressed, the polar opposite of what your mistress feels. You recall a moment in your past that was long forgotten, living in the slums of some town’s forgotten name. In the orphanage, there wasn’t enough for each child; the same old story. Children not being able to feed themselves would have to die from starvation, while others would resort to other methods.Join gangs, steal, beg on the streets…Sometimes when waking up you would find heads of those who joined gangs on the doorstep. Your interrupted by the sound of Vivi’s knife driving through the neck of the Murtlap. She is laughing at the creature as it appears to be struggling to breathe. You remember what Vivi’s father said to you before the two of you left for the academy I won't hesitate to put you head by the blade. Just like how Vivi didn’t hesitate to place her blade on the Murtlap’s throat, the same could easily be done to you. If she doesn’t stop her sadistic ways, your future is set in stone. For now, you’ll have to obey her commands and see it that she doesn’t stab anybody or yourself…You release the knife that will still lodge inside of the stomach of the Murtlap, one of the intestines squirt out releasing further blood and fluids that were bottling up from within. Some of it sprays on top of your faces. Hopefully, you can try to guide her away from, killing larger animals or even people, perhaps even all small animals like the Murtlap laying dead and unmoving in the box. The vial in your chest feels much warmer than it did before, but you choose to ignore it.>[1/2]
“Are you alright Sally? What did you think of it?” Vivi asks.“I-uh, need a moment…I think I’m changing back,” you say excusing yourself to your room leaving the knife on the bed.“Oh ok! I can clean up on my own,” Vivi says.Looking in the mirror you see Vivi’s face reflecting in the mirror, blood is splattered around your cheek and nose. In front of you is your mistress who saved you from a possible life of suffering in an orphanage, but also a sadistic mistress that loves to kill for fun. You try to rub away the blood, on your face to only find that it becomes more bloodied to your hand being red from the Murtlap. Taking off Vivi’s dress and clothing you head to the nearby restroom to wash everything off. The PolyInk time limit ends sometime during your long shower, you change back to just being Solomon. The servant to Vivi D’Roix.Checking your body, you noticed that the [PolyInk Key & the Enhanced Hearing Key] are completely gone, but you can still feel that your hearing is still better than normal(?).You quickly get dressed in some comfortable clothing, maybe it's best that you get some time to yourself for now?>Go talk to Vivi?>Walk to one of the events?

It wouldn't be hard to find out the identities of us an our companions, and while criminals may be hesitant to touch Vivi, others probably won't be so fortunate.

It’s a good excuse to turn in>Use [Fishing Holes] as you go to sleep?>Sea and normal Solomon.You decide that its best that you turn in early for the night. You both physically and mentally exhausted after the events that occurred today. Would your physical body also be exhausted in the fishing holes world? Maybe some time alone there would be good for you. You place the vial in your item box for safekeeping, the risk of it getting stolen or breaking is less likely. You lay down in your warm soft bed, and get comfy. The girl from next door is singing once again, but this time it’s a happier song about traveling the world. Something is wrong with your hearing if you can still hear the girl next door without the key. You think about [Fishing Holes], the sea and your normal human self. Soon you feel your eyelids drop heavy to only open them to the sound of seagulls passing by.Your body feels like its full of energy and ready to get going, unlike the you who is sleeping soundly exhausted in your bed. You're wearing the fishing outfit that you were wearing before you left. Looking around you see that you’re in the small house or apartment that FH has left you. Turning around you see the siren Griselda staring at you, looking angry. Even while angry she is somewhat pretty.“Who. Are. You?” she asks angrily.“Don’t remember me? I’m Solomon,” you say smiling.“You don’t look like Solomon, Solomon is a short shrimp… But FH did say that you might come back looking differently…change back to being a shrimp!” Griselda says demandingly.“I don’t think I can do that on command. Well...I probably could, but I’ve had enough of being someone else for one day even if it's just a different version of me," you say.“Is something wrong?” Griselda asks.>Tell her the about your day?

I nearly passed out because of it. I then used blood with magic to turn into a teenage girl for a few hours. It was an interesting experience, to say the least. I think I avoided being caught by a possible criminal organization after stealing from them,” you say.“You turned into a girl? How!” Griselda asks.“As I said I mixed blood with magic. I used the blood of the girl I turned into to do so. It was an order from her, so I had to do so,” you say.“How does it work? Does it work on anyone?” Griselda questions you again.“…It works on anyone. Why do you ask?” you ask.“If you became a shrimp then placed your blood into your little box could you technically turn into your shrimp self?” Griselda asks.“Theoretically yes, I could,” you say.“Just curious…Aren’t you going to ask me about my day?” Griselda asks quickly changing the topic.“How was your day?” you ask as you begin to massage her back.“Well shrimp, if you must know I had a great day walking around town at least during day hours. This town is much larger than I had expected seeing it from afar. The night hours are pretty quiet, though,” Griselda says.“What is there to do? Besides fish,” you ask.“Not much really, there is a tavern where people go to eat or talk. There is notice board around town requesting for people to bring them things. If you are looking to speak with FH about something, you must request a meeting apparently. I wanted to ask him to catch me some food,” Griselda says pouting.“Is there something you’d like to do?” Griselda asks.>Walk around town>Find our where you can schedule a meeting with FH>Write-in

We’ll check the notice board for any jobs we could do, then get some food. If we have time after we can maybe see FH afterward,” you say.“As long as I get some food, in the end, I don’t really care what we do,” Griselda says.Griselda walks you around the port city, but this time you are viewing it up from your normal point of view. Following Griselda, you notice that the waterways are large enough for ships such as your cutter can pass through with relative ease. On the other side of the waterway, you can hear others speaking about how pirates are becoming more abundant in the sky biome, and that some people have gone missing. Soon enough Griselda stops at a large billboard there are several papers listed on it with various requests: * Bring me a sandwich from a 5* Restaurant ** Need information regarding the Blue Moon Inn ** Want me to read your Horoscope? Your Future? Come Visit Me ** I been stuck traveling for 8 days and need something to keep my mind busy ** Looking for a comrade to fish with * By reading the notices on the board you deduct that while some are just ads for people businesses. Others are for utilization of the [FH Item Box] to trade from one person to another without ever leaving whatever you are doing in real life. Such as the person who is stuck traveling wanting something to keep his mind busy.You watch a young woman walk up to the notice board grabbing the flyer requesting for a sandwich from a 5* Restaurant. The address of the person is written on the back. The woman then summons her item box placing the flyer within before fading away."I swear everyone is a ghost in this town, everybody I see fades away at some point," Griselda says.>Find your Horoscope?>Take the Flyer on the Blue Moon Inn>Look for a place to eat?

For now, you pocket the flyer.“Let’s look for a place to eat before we can see if we can get a meeting with FH or do whatever the flyer wants me to do,” you say.“Eating food with Shrimp! Alright then! I just happen to know a place,” Griselda says.As you follow Griselda to your unknown location, you listen for any conversations of interest. Your not sure why the hearing enhancement is still in effect, but you plan to use to good use regardless. *I traded a weeks’ worth of fish for a necklace for my niece**Apparently there is going to be a war among pirates soon. I came here to escape not to see more fighting**I saw a Siren walking around, but she seemed to be tamed by someone**I wonder if FH is busy today…**I heard that there is an event coming up soon**I sold my FH book for tons of cash on the market**The Fish Potpie is to die for* *I nearly got hit in the chest by an arrow when travelling through a thick forest looking for a spot to fish at* Griselda winds you down several allyways, and nooks to arrive a small door. On the door is a sign that says [Rising Sun], the inside is much larger than the outside. The floor and walls are made of wood, there is an old man cleaning a glass beer cup.>[1/2] Character count Limit
“Hey Boss, table for two!” Griselda yells out at the old man.The old man points at an empty table nearby. Sitting down you notice that there is a lack of décor in the restaurant but can feel a fresh ocean breeze flowing within.“What can I start you two off with,” the old man asks.“We’ll both have two rounds of fish chowder and sake please,” Griselda says.“I’ll just have water to drink” you respond back.“Your no fun. When you’re not a shrimp,” Griselda says.“I’m also underage, but that doesn’t really matter here I guess…” you say.The man writes down your order and goes through a door entering the kitchen.“How do you plan to pay for the food? I don’t have any money on me,” you ask.“Relax shrimp. I happen to have lots of money from people that I ate in the past,” Griselda says.“…When did you eat these people?” you ask grimly.“Don’t give me that face! It was before I met you. I only killed those men for survival, I have to eat as well know? You were just different and much cuter before…If I were to request you to do something now, you probably would drop everything and do so,” Griselda says smiling.You take a moment to think about Griselda’s words. She would have eaten you the other day, if it wasn’t for you being able to resist her magical charm. She only kills to survive and live the next day. It doesn’t seem like she takes joy in killing others…does she?“D-do you find killing fun?” you ask.“…Not really. Please don’t put a damper on the mood I’m trying to enjoy myself. The fish chowder is coming, and I want to eat it without thinking of such sad things,” Griselda says. As soon as Griselda finishes her sentence the old man comes out of the kitchen carrying the fish chowder that you order. While the Blue Moon Inn served good food, the Rising Sun easily tops the dish that you were served. Every bite that you take tastes fresh before consumption. You nearly become lost in your fish chowder if it wasn’t for the loud bang of the door opening.“Hey, old man! Come with us, the [The Total Red Gang] needs you to be our cook,” a punky looking man with spikey red hair says.“I’m kind of busy running my shop and don’t have time for childish things,” the old man says.“We don’t take no as an answer, either you come and be our cook or we steal everything you catch. We can’t hurt you here on FH’s turf, but out there we can do whatever we want,” the punk man says pointing towards the ocean.Griselda looks like she is ready to spring into action. While others in the Rising Sun have their heads down trying to ignore the situation at hand.>Tell Griselda to not do anything rash and wait it out to see what happens>Tell them that you’ll cook for them instead>Ignore the situation completely and focus on your delicious Fish Chowder>Write-in[2/2]

Let’s wait it out see what happens,” you say.Calming down Griselda you resume to eat your fish chowder but at a much slower pace. Watching the old man, you notice that he pulls a small wad of cash out of his pocket before handing it over to the man that was harassing him. They quickly stop berating the old man, seeing the cash that is now in their hands.“We won’t come back, just don’t mess with us out in the sea,” the now calmer Red Gang member says.The Total Red gang leaves the restaurant cheering that they will all go buy drinks with the new money they have. The old man bows down to those who are seated, apologizing for the interruption during their meal.>[1/2] (Character Limit)
“My sincerest apologies for the disturbance, please pay no mind to my personal business. Please enjoy your meal and thank you for choosing to dine at the Rising Sun,” the old man says as he goes behind a door into the kitchen.“We should have done something, Shrimp!” Griselda says.“We were probably outnumbered and would have gotten our butts kicked. If you want we can try to gather information on them later. For now, let’s focus on our meals.” you say.Griselda doesn’t speak for the rest of the meal as she eats her fish chowder in silence, but you can’t help to take several glances at her happy face when she bites into her meal. She is enjoying the delicious food as well. She speaks up again after a few minutes of eating.“What do you do when you’re not here shrimp?” Griselda asks.“I’m a servant for a girl about my age, she gives me tasks to do various things,” you say.“Like what?” Griselda asks.“…Oh uh. Cleaning her bed sheets, making sure she is properly dressed, getting things she will want for later, and helping her maintain her social standing…the usual. We go to a prestigious school together, I have a couple of friends there,” you say.“Oh really, a school? I remember when I went to a school,” Griselda says.“A school for sirens?” you ask.“Something like that…do you like-like anyone in particular at that school?” Griselda asks.You wave your hand quickly denying that you like-like anyone at the academy.“I don’t have anyone that I like-like in the academy, but I have some nice friends though we’re in a club together. I hope we get to know each other more in the future. One of them is a Prince,” you say.“A prince? What’s that?” Griselda asks.“A really important person, he’s like if FH had a kid or something,” you say.Soon the two of you finish your meal, the man comes up and hands you a check. Griselda pulls some money out of her bra, as well as a green jewel.“Excuse me Ma’am this is too much for the meal, I can’t possibly accept this,” the old man says.Griselda smiles.“Think of it as a generous tip, for the delicious chowder and service you provide,” Griselda says.“Thank you very much Ma’am please, have a good day,” the old man says.>Ask the Old Man a question regarding information on the Red Gang Group>Locate the person who wants information on the Blue Moon>Try to visit FH?>Write-in

Currently, they are small at around 100 members, but I can see them growing more in the future. Fighting and stealing isn’t allowed in this town, but out in the sea its any man’s gain,” the old man says.“Where do they live?” you ask.“They live right across the street actually…” the old man pointing to his door.Stepping outside you notice a giant sign that says: ‘Join the Total Red Gang’ Make Lots of Money! “I wonder how we missed that,” you ask Griselda.“They must have recently put it up…” Griselda says.There is a woman outside passing out flyers to people passing by. She walks up to.“Please join our info session, we are always looking for new recruits,” the woman says.“No thank you I’m not interested-”you say before you are interrupted by Griselda.“I would love to join the info session!

I’ll attend the info session,” you say shrugging your shoulders.“Thank you very much for the consideration of joining the Total Red Gang,” the woman says.As you enter inside you look at Griselda with a deadpan expression.“Your planning something aren’t you?” you say in a low whisper.“I am, now follow my lead,” Griselda says as she nonchalantly walks in.Entering inside of the Total Red Gang’s building you notice that there is a large mess hall with several other people speaking amongst themselves. Around their neck, they are wearing a name tag along with their name and occupation. There is a small line leading to a receptionist desk. You try to listen for any possible ambushes or secret rooms, but don't hear anything out of the ordinary.“Welcome to the Total Red Info session, can you give me your name and occupation?” the man at the receptionist desk asks.“Solo-” you say before Griselda jabs you on your side quickly silencing you.“My name is Selena Blaze. I work as a waitress for a restaurant” Griselda says.“S-e-l-e-n-a B-l-a-z-e. Occupation: Waitress,” the woman writes down on a piece of paper handing it to Griselda.“And your name sir?”“Uh, my name is…Sol…Alab...aster. Occupation: Interior designer?” you say slowly.The woman looks at you raising an eyebrow before writing down your name.“Here you are Sol Alabaster,” the woman says handing you nametag with your fake id.You and Griselda walk past the woman and sit down at a table where others may not be able to hear from you.“Is that really the best that you can think of? Sol? What kind of last name is Alabaster? You were better calling yourself shrimp. Alabaster is such a fake name,” Griselda says.“I didn’t know what to pick, I was put on the spot! I just happen to know a couple of people with that last name…Why did you choose to take a fake identity?” you ask.“These are pirates, the last thing you should tell them is your real name and where you live! Besides I have a plan,” Griselda says.“A plan? What would that be?” you ask.Griselda is about to talk about her plan before she is interrupted by a large booming voice into the crowd.>[1/3?]
A very buff tall adult male comes on to the stage. If inside of FH’s book there was a picture of a pirate, he would be the spitting image. The large man is wearing a red barrel shaped pirate hat, along with clothes of a matching color reaching down his legs. As well he is wearing large boots with spikes on the bottom.“Ahem. Thank everyone for your consideration for joining ‘Total Red’ this first segment will just be a primary screening process while the second segment will be providing information that will explain what you will be doing when first entering the gang. I’m the Vice-Leader of Total Red, you may address me as Richard Dally ,” Richard says.“First of all, we’re not a charity group. We will steal from others and get what we want. Currently, the sea is untaxable. If we can mass a large enough fleet, we will be able to tax those who wish to fish outside and use that money for ourselves. For those of you who need money or are familiar with this concept, think of it as a side hustle . An extra source of income to accumulate money. Currently, our group is made up of 100 men, but by the end of the week, we plan to quintuple that number.For those of you who don’t wish to join I ask you to leave now, or stay for the second phase of screening. Those who join will receive an entrance paycheck for joining,” Richard says stepping off stage.The room quickly becomes very loud with several conversations of chatter. You are forced to press your hands against your ears, to be able to focus on only Griselda who is speaking to you.“They must be getting that money from somewhere if we can locate where they are stashing the loot we can steal it and take it for our own,” Griselda says.“There are more of them than they’re of us. Maybe we should just leave and see how this all play out,” you suggest.“No way shrimp. If anything we can get back the money to the old man,” Griselda says.“…So that’s what this is about? Getting back to the goons who harassed the old man?” you ask.“Exactly! Now you're thinking my way shrimp. We have to be sneaky about it, maybe I can charm one of them to tell me where the money is,” Griselda says.>Go along with Griselda’s plan to steal back from ‘Total Red’>You have a better plan (Write-in)>Convince her not to try and charm someone into giving away the location of the cash>Write-in
>>3408469>Go along with Griselda’s plan to steal back from ‘Total Red’She might be experienced with using her powers to get her way with men, but somehow I feel there's something to more to these pirates. We should probably disassociate from one another for the time being so if one of us is caught the other can still provide backup.

>>3408502>>3406937>>3404213>Go along with Griselda’s plan to steal back from ‘Total Red’“You said before that your little siren charm thing, can get people to do what you want or put them in a trance right?” you ask.“Exactly shrimp, during the second screening I’ll charm one of the Total Red members and get them to tell me some info,” Griselda says.“If it doesn’t work?” you ask.“Simple. Rescue me and we get out,” Griselda says confidently.“Sure…Simple,” you mumble.After a few minutes, you see several people leave the building. An elderly man comes onto the stage, he is carrying several sheets of paper. The elderly man clears his throat.“Thank you everyone who is staying for the second screening. There will be individual interviews, where you will have to answer several questions. We will be going in alphabetical order starting with ‘Alabaster’. You and another man stand up. The man looks at you and shrugs his shoulders.“Oh, there’s two…Emelie Alabaster first then,” the elderly man says.You sit back down.“I told you Alabaster was a good last name,” you say.“Apparently so,” Griselda says.Four men step up on the stage.“To make the proceedings go by faster, we’ll have these two volunteers assist with the interview. That being said can we have the other Alabaster proceed to the interview room,” one of the men says.“That would be me,” you tell Griselda as you stand up.“Knock them dead!” Griselda says loudly.>[1/2] Character Count
You follow one of the Total Red members into a small room. The room has nothing of décor, nor of anything of interest except a cat sitting on a table. Very similar to the cat that you saw at the Blue Moon. The cat is of different coloration, with blue fur rather than red, but its similarities still lie with in its forked tail at the end. The man that you saw earlier Richard, is sitting behind the desk.“Hello, Mr. Alabaster please come sit,” Richard gesturing you to sit in a chair.You sit down in the chair in front of the desk.“Your name is Sol Alabaster. Is that correct?” Richard asks.“Yes. That’s me,” you say.From the other side of the wall, you hear a voice in a hushed whisper of someone speaking. He’s lying. That’s good. “Your name tag says you work as an interior designer. Mind telling me how you would liven up this room?” Richard asks.You take a moment to look around the room. The walls are barren but made of wood.“I would paint the walls red, to match with the theme of the ‘Total Red’,” you say. Paint them red with blood? …Interesting. “Have you ever killed something or seen it done?” Richard asks.“…Yes. Many times,” you say. He isn’t lying. That’s good…Tell him to pet the cat, I want more information. “Can you please pet our cat? He often enjoys new company,” Richard says.“……..Sorry, I’m heavily allergic to cats,” you say.“That’s a shame. Thank you, Mr. Alabaster we’ll call you back, please take this stone. When it warms up please come by and visit for the final selection,” Richard says.You leave the room opening to reveal Griselda.“What are you doing here?” you ask.“I’m next. Now if you excuse me Alabaster I have an interview to attend,” Griselda says strolling by you.You grab Griselda by her wrist and give her a rushed whisper.“Whatever you do, don’t touch the cat. Something is fishy,” you tell her before letting go.Griselda waves you away. You hope that she heeded your warning.What do you do while you wait on Griselda?>Try to make conversations with the others in the room?>Take a breather outside>Sit down & take a moment to think about the things you have to do when you wake up?

>>3410528>>3410678>>3410935>Take a breather outsideLeaving Griselda to do her interview you take a moment to step outside to take a breather. You stretch your arms into the air and reach for your toes. Then reaching once more towards the sky you breathe in the salty sea air. This place is truly different, but your already getting into trouble. Instead of getting involved with a criminal organization your getting involved with a pirates, even though your not sure which is more dangerous than the other. The Blue Moon had the same type of cat with a forked tail, but a different color. Whatever it is, it was dangerous, probably?When your about to step outside you hear a conversation from the side of the building, as well as the old man’s voice from the Rising Sun. You walk towards the corner of the building and lay your back flat against the wall to listen to the conversation.“The woman’s screams Siren, she gave me this green jewel. Who pays fish chowder with a jewel? Get her to pet the cat and load her on to the boat. If we act fast, we can throw her into the ocean before she breaks the charm,” the old man says.“Right away boss,” you hear a younger voice say.“The siren was eating with another male who looked about the age of 15. Lookout for him we don’t know what he’s capable of. He didn’t seem to be affected by the siren’s charm, whatsoever,” the old man says.“Uh, boss what do we do if we can’t get her to pet the cat?” the younger voice asks.“We wait for her to leave the city then, or we aim for a bigger catch,” the old man says.>[1/2] Character limit
You do a 180 degree turn back towards the entrance of the building to warn Griselda of the danger that she may be facing. Instead, you get a grand view of a familiar buxom…It’s Griselda’s.“I’m glad that you are enjoying the view shrimp, but my eyes are up here,” Griselda says pointing at her eyes.“What are you doing here? Weren’t you doing the interview?” you ask.“I already did it, they kicked me out as soon as the found out I was trying to get information out of them. I tried to charm the person interviewing me, it worked for a moment, but it fizzled out quickly. The cat in the room kept growling at me showing its baring its teeth at me. I lost my concentration, and I was called out for trying to use a charm on them,” Griselda says (55).“They just let you go?” you ask.“Why wouldn’t they?” Griselda asks.“I think the old man from the Rising Sun is also a member of ‘Total Red’. I just overheard him speaking with another person about wanting to steal your money and throw you into the ocean,” you say.“….That lying cheating motherF-,” Griselda's face turns devious and mischievous.“If he wants to steal from me, let’s steal from him then. No one messes with Selena Blaze!” Griselda says proudly.“We follow the old man until he leaves the city and then that’s when I charm him and you take all of his money,” Griselda says.>“No one steals from a friend of Sol Alabaster! If things go bad, I’ll blind him with light. (Go along with Griselda’s plan)>“I’m not going to become a thief and steal from an old man who tried stealing from you. Let’s get out of here before they report that you are siren. (Don’t go along with Griselda’s plan)>Write-in[2/2]
>>3411514“...Why not just wait for him to leave the Rising Sun, then steal the jewel from his restaurant? Or blackmail him regarding us telling the town that he’s actually part of the gang? Or set up a meeting with FH about the Rising Sun being a front for Total Red?”
>>3411535I'll wait for 25m, then go with this. If no more votes come in.

Or blackmail him regarding us telling the town that he’s actually part of the gang? Or set up a meeting with FH about the Rising Sun being a front for Total Red?” you ask.“Sabotage? Blackmail? I guess that could work as well. Even though I prefer to just take the fight straight to them. You are much smarter than you look, Solomon, even though I prefer you looking bite-size and cuter,” Griselda says.“Do you mean bite-size in a literal sense?” you ask.“Yes!” Griselda says happily. You sigh and shake your head. You motion Griselda to begin walking with you and to get away from the building.“Think of it this way. The old man won’t know that it’s us who attacked his restaurant, you get your jewel back, and he’ll never know who it was. What way do you want to approach this, clearly one way has more risks of getting caught than the other?” you ask.“Let’s see if we can just take the jewel from his restaurant. Even if he is a lying son of a bitch, his food is still absolutely delicious,” Griselda says.Soon the two of you return you’re your headquarters. Griselda sits on the chair asking for a foot massage, which you gladly oblige to.“Next time I come by is there anything I should bring?” you ask.“Bring something that covers your face, and dark clothing. We’re going to attack during the night. Come as your smaller self so that your footsteps are quieter & you’ll be harder to recognize,” Griselda says.“You sound like you’ve have had experience in this sort of business,” you say.“…In the past, I’ve done raids on large ships with other sirens to get supplies or other things that we may need,” Griselda says looking downcast.“I’m sure it will work out fine, hopefully…I went to sleep rather early and tomorrow I have a day off, I still have some time here to spend with you,” you say.“Why don’t we…”>“Go find a place to eat dessert.”>“Go on a boat ride.”>“Try to request a meeting with FH?”>Write-in[We’ve hit Page 10.

>>3411535Sure, I'll second this. I'm not sure if Griselda understands escalating against an entire organization, in a town that is probably hostile to her kind, is probably unwise.
