War is multidimensional,
it effects more than just those in the immediate area, but overtakes all.
The land becomes ravaged by tents pitched and boots marched.
The people are famished by poverty, as soldiers quarter in their homes and eat their wares.
War spans generations, it can inflict wounds that live on for decades.
There is nothing romantic about bloodshed and death.
But there is romance in what comes next.
Families reunited, burying the dead, poems sprout from heroes, and lives that were spared.
And when the flowers blossom where they were once dead, love can begin to grow again.

It was not supposed to be this way, but it never is. War is unpredictable, it is not only a test of strength, but a test of will. In this case, the offendors will was stronger. Messiah sat upon a cracked throne, wearing an ill fitting crown. His faceless face smiled as he greeted in a new era, his pets at his feet, one a witch, the others all demons. In his decree, he ordered that the remainder of the demons repent for their crimes, or be executed at sunrise. Most chose to repent, swearing fealty at his feet. Most of them were cowards. There were only three that were executed, nameless, faceless, they hung outside of the Cascade as a warning for all others to see.

They marched the next spring upon the Tower Society, with their ranks at full strength and their demons at their highest power. Messiah wielded a terrifying force upon the remainder of the humans. He was mighty, they stood no chance and crumbled beneath his fist. The battle took place nearly two hundred years ago and the face of the earth began to change. The surviving humans were used for various means, not food of course, nothing so barbaric. They became slaves and toys, pets used for pleasure or games. They were forced to work in factories, bearing numbers on their lapels and barcodes on their wrists. Few remained in power, but even then, it was conditional underneath the will of Messiah.

They wanted the war, oh how the demons thirsted for it. They said it would unify the countries at last, to rid the earth of the plague called humanity and replace it with something more sustainable. They delivered on their word, the plants began to flourish, entire cities were leveled when there was no one to live in them. Forests sprang left and right, there was food for all, with no human left to go hungry and no demon unable to feed their hoard. The only spats were ones of territory, demons ever-so possessive over what they believed was rightfully their's. There were systems put in place for these things of course, the high court to rule on anything that could not be settled with fists. Realizing it was futile to fight it, the angels began to migrate to earth. Only a very few decided to remain, as Heaven had much more to offer than a land ravaged by demons and their human slaves.

Mercy was not a word in the demon vocabulary. Humans were not to stray far from their owners and owners were to keep track of their flock, least they want their belongings to be taken by another demon.

On the surface, there seemed to be a sense of relative peace. Of course, internally, there was a horrible disquiet. The humans were oppressed and could not resist. They were outnumbered and out-manned, with nothing left for them to do but submit. If their demon task-masters were kind enough, they lived in nicely appointed corridors. Some had homes with families, while others lived in slums built atop one another. There was always an exception, of course, for the humans who had managed to live off of the grid. They had escaped during the first wave of oppression and fled to the woods. They lived in caves with no electricity or running water. Still, some fled to the human paradise called Japan, the only stronghold the demons had never managed to infiltrate.

Ruling with a demon fist, the future of earth seemed imminent, unless, of course, something came to disrupt them.

Unfortunately, Ophie became quite busy after that night. "I'm going to need to borrow Ophie's talents for a little request." Baroness Anguis said with a little smile, Ayna flickering next to her, the specter at her side. "There's something I need to do. Trust me, you'll benefit from this too." Baron Pierce thought for a moment, and then he nodded. "You've been a gracious guest thus far." He said, looking her calmly in the eye. "So I'll trust you with my Baronling's well-being for now." And that was how, temporarily, Ophelia became Baroness Anguis's Baronling. Over the next day she ran all over the country, searching for clues, following the tracks Ayna left her. "This way." Ayna would say, pointing. "We have to keep looking. The target can't be far."

Finally by dusk of the second day, and by the day Fae Queen Monaka was scheduled to make her leave, Ophelia finally found the target. "There they are. I knew they wouldn't just sit quiet." They were hiding using Ophie's invisibility spell, carefully far enough away so that the duo wouldn't be able to hear them. Ophie glared, the target right in her crosshairs. Baroness Rafflesia and Baronling Feodth were still in Amiens, by the English Channel. They were getting close to where Baronness Occasus resided. Occasus and Vaswald lived quite far from each other, one in Germany, the other on the British Isles. If the two sisters were ever to come together, they would become Orbus Coelus and end the world with their power. The Herald of Destruction would blow everything away.

She didn't have time to think of these things for now. Ophelia dashed forward, knowing what she needed to do. Rafflesia and Feodth were still trying to spread the drug, and now, the silver angel was going to stop it.She felt something behind her, Ayna was following her lead, a friendly green ghostly glow. With a slice, her twin tails tore through Feodth's muscular body. He was big, he was strong, but his pain sensitivity was so low even a simple touch was enoguh to make him keel over. "Oh my." Rafflesia glowered, her fangs coming out. "A surprise attack? How rude of Baron Pierce to do such a thing." Ophelia unveiled herself, an icy stare in her crimson eyes.

"Sorry, but I'm Anguis's Baronling." And Anguis would definitely be willing to use tricks like this. She saw her points begin to skyrocket. Just like that, all of Feodth's points now belonged to her. "If you think you can get away with this-" Ophie grinned, pulling away, her tails sharp and gleaming with the moon's light. She wasn't stupid, she wasn't going to fight the Baroness. "Sorry, but it's against the rules for you to interfere, Rafflesia. And there's not enough time for you to fight back." She destroyed the vials of the awful drug, and veiled herself in invisibility again. The mission was done, now hopefully she would get the awful snake out of her clothes and return to her true Baron's side.

Her routine went on as normal, Monaka wanted to see everything, from how the food was prepared, to what sort of material Baron Pierce was teaching her. Alice did not enjoy having her around, asking questions, disrupting her routine. She even followed Rene into the bathroom during bath time. It was tiring, having Monaka around all the time. It was clear that Sonata didn't enjoy it either, although Baron Pierce didn't seem to mind. In fact, he almost seemed to enjoy having Monaka around, more than the other guests. More than once, she had caught Baron Pierce leaving Monaka's guest room with his tie undone. "Couple of love birds those two are," Echo observed, standing in the hallway, clutching a book, as she often did.

"Echo, how did tutoring go today?" Baron Pierce inquired. Echo bopped a fist against Alice's head, Alice blinking. "Thick as a brick wall this one is." Was that a good thing? Alice looked up at Echo. "Can't count for the life of her," numbers were not her strong suit, actually, learning wasn't her strong suit. She was too antsy to sit still at a desk, which was why Baron Pierce had turned learning into games. Alice could now go from A-Z with only one or two mistakes. Of course, it didn't help that she could barely pay any attention while reciting it. "Well, at least we're making some progress." Baron Pierce pat Alice's head. "Is Monaka going home soon?" She asked, puffing out her cheeks. "Tomorrow," Baron Pierce promised, which was when Monaka had said she would depart.

Tomorrow also happened to be the tea party that would announce the next round of who was moving on to the next stage in the Baron Trials. Alice couldn't go of course, she was to stay as far away from Baron King Messiah's castle in Paris as possible. "Oh, there you are." Monaka exited her guest room, smiling. Echo bristled, walking in the other direction. It's not that she disliked Monaka, she simply disliked everyone. "Alice, do you want to go flying?" Monaka asked, placing a hand on Alice's head. Almost immediately, her eyes began to glow. She collapsed, her sister catching her. "What is this? What's happening?" She demanded, slightly panicked. "She's having a vision," Baron Pierce lifted her, opening the door to Alice's room. "I'll place her in her bed until it passes." Monaka followed him, she had already scoured every inch of Alice's room to scrutinize the arrangements.

The ocean? Alice did not know how she knew, she had never seen the ocean before. It was vast, the sand squishing between her toes. There was a girl standing on the beach as well, one Alice had never seen. She had wings similar to Ophie's, only whiter if that were possible. Her hair was the color of snow and her eyes a pinkish red. "So this is earth without snow," she took a step forward, her shoes in her hands. "Okay Celeste," she breathed, taking off her crown and tossing it into the waves. "If Raphie won't tell me where they are, I'll just have to find them on my own."

With Feodth dealt with, there was nothing left to do but to return home to Amiens. "Let's go back, you've been away for too long." Ayna said with a little smile. "And thanks for agreeing to go along with the quest." Ophelia shook her head. "No, it was good to do this. We had to make sure Feodth was taken care of." While there was a good chance he would be disqualified, the silver angel didn't want to leave things up to chance. It was best to always take matters into your own hands whenever you could. "I'm sure you miss Alice though. Let's go back home." As they got on a bus that would take them back to the town by the Estate, Ophelia suddenly wondered. "So, don't you get hungry when you're a ghost all the time?"

"Well, I-" Before Ayna could finish talking there were several things that happened in short succession. First, a small white cat was walking across the road. It didn't seem to notice the bus at all. Second, a red blur went across the sky and landed in front of the bus, a single red wing protruding from her back, her hair dark, claws coming out her fist. She grabbed the little kitten and clung to it, holding it tight. Ophelia flew out of the now destroyed bus, Ayna following after her, sharing the same startled expression. Were they under attack? Just what was going on? "Stupid!" The red winged demon snarled, and power was coming off of her in waves. "How dare you endanger a cat like this!" Ophelia flew in, blocking her claw's strike with her tail, and then she was knocked to the ground. This feeling - this had to be a-

"Baronness Occasus, what are you doing here? Shouldn't you be ruling over Britain right now?" Ayna asked, shimmering. Occasus looked at her and made a fanged grin. "But then who would save this kitty? Someone had to do it! You're not allowed to hurt animals! Whose territory is this?" There were rumors that Occasus was a Baroness who would do anything to save any animal she saw, she had a complex about saving them and taking them home with her. "And why do you want to know?" Occasus looked around, smelling the air. "Ah, so this is France. This is cheese land." She nodded as if that made all the sense in the world. "Well, I'm gonna go make Pierce a visit then."

Ophelia wasn't sure if she could allow that. The bus driver fainted from nearly being killed, but thankfully Ophie made it in time. She peeled herself off of the road. "And just what do you plan on doing?" Vaswald was a lot easier to handle. She was calmer and more reserved, while Occasus was like a wildfire that just did whatever she wanted to. "I'm gonna make a complaint that one of his staff almost killed this little angel!" She flew off, leaving streaks of flames on the ground. Ophelia sighed, looking at Ayna. The green ghost vanished, no doubt to warn Pierce about the visitor coming to break in. The angel rubbed her head, a new headache coming on.

Alice awoke a bit cranky, which was normal. She turned over onto her side, rubbing her eyes, feeling tired. Visions were like naps, except with weird dreams that she didn't like. "Feeling better?" Baron Pierce asked, patting her head. Alice winced, her head throbbed. "My head hurts," she whimpered. "You bumped your head when you fell, but I'll have Rene bring up something for the pain." Beside him, Monaka bristled. Faeries didn't use pain medicine of course, they took medicinal herbs and she did not like the idea of her sister taking those sinister medications. Rene came with water and two white pills, Alice took them, knowing it would make the pain stop. "It's almost dinner time, so no snacks." Monaka said, even though Alice hadn't asked for one. She was hungry though.

"Do you want to talk about your vision?" Baron Pierce prodded gently, knownig that sometimes it helped the crankiness. "There was a beach," Alice said after a bit of a pause. She squirmed and reached for Dog and Pog. "And a lady, she had white hair and wings like Ophie's." Monaka and Baron Pierce shared a glance. "An angel?" Pierce asked slowly, Alice nodded. "She was pretty," for some reason, this made Monaka mad. "Anything else?" She asked, crossing her arms. Alice thought for a minute. "She said, "Okay Celeste," and then it ended." Baron Pierce smiled slowly, as calm as ever under pressure. "Well, it seems the Queen of the Underworld has decided to pay us all a visit." He lifted Alice up, "let's see if Ophie has returned yet, I'm sure she'll be very interested in your vision."

"You don't think that could have really been her, do you?" Monaka asked, following him out and down the stairs. "I don't think it could have been anyone else." He replied swiftly, his tone light. The question was, what was Queen Celeste doing on earth? After Kitra's death, she had disappeared, more than likely whisked away to Heaven by her brothers. It was said that she had descended into madness after the death of her love and Baron King Messiah had made it perfectly clear that angels were no longer welcome on earth after they had attempted to assimilate and tried to treat humans as equals. Of course, this was already over one hundred years ago, no one had seen hide nor hair of an angel on earth for that long, at least. Human life spans were not that long either.

"I want cake." Alice declared, wriggling. "No cake until after dinner," Baron Pierce smiled, placing her down. She bound towards Sonata and Cal, who were playing cards in the parlor with the three faerie knights. They all rose as soon as their respective leaders entered the room, following Alice, who jumped onto the couch. "Is Ophie back yet?" She asked, immediately crawling onto Cal's lap as soon as he sat back down. "What game is this?" She asked, looking at all of the discs ont he table. "Poker," Sonata replied. "Raise," she tossed in more discs. "No, Ophie isn't back yet. I think she'll be here soon though." Cal glanced at his cards, "Pass." He leaned back, "I want to play too."

"No," Monaka replied from her spot. "Gambling is not something an Oracle needs to learn."

Moving fast, Ophie and Ayna needed to get home quick. By the time Ophelia finished making it home, Ayna had already made her report to Baron Pierce. "Occasus is coming." She said as Ophie entered through the door, all tired out from being temporarily made Baroness Anguis's Baronling. "She's going to yell at you about animals or something." Anguis snickered, grinning. "Don't worry, Occasus is relatively harmless." She took a cracker, biting down on it with her teeth. Sonata and Calciferous welcomed Ophie back home, waving at her. "So what happened that Occasus needed to come here?" Cal asked, a laugh in his eyes. "A bus driver almost ran over a cat." Ophie explained balefully, shaking her head. "I'm hungry." Cal laughed, nodding. "Yup, that sounds like her. I'm sure it'll be quite entertaining."

He and Sonata had been playing poker. And to Ophie's dismay, Fae Queen Monaka was still here, glaring with disapproval at the cards. What, did they personally wrong her or something? Did she lose a game of go fish and now have a stick up her butt against card games? The angel didn't know, but fae folk were fickle and flighty like that. You couldn't trust them as far as you could throw them. "Good to see you too." She said, averting her eyes from Monaka, but it was good to pretend to be polite at least. Would Monaka acknowledge the one who so disliked her? Who really knew at this point? "Want to play a few rounds before she gets here?" Sonata asked as Ophelia went to Anguis to complete the transfer of ownership. She once again belonged to Baron Pierce, who welcomed her safe return.

Ophie sat with Sonata and Calciferous and played quite a few rounds of poker. She even greeted Alice, giving her a little candy which no doubt Monaka glared at had Ophie been paying the slightest been of attention towards her. It was near the end of the day when the door burst open as someone very rudely arrived. "The savior is here! Baron Occasus demands your patronage, Baron Pierce!" The fire winged Baroness declared, making her arrival known to all. Poor Rene was knocked to the ground by the door that swung at her as she tried to open it when Occasus came through.

With Occasus was a horde of cats, dogs, even a cow had followed her in. Was this what took her so long compared to Ayna and Ophie, who both arrived quickly at the estate? "I have many complaints! The animals in your territory are in great danger! How could you allow that!" She began rattling off reasons. This cat was almost hit by a bus. This cat was almost eaten by a demon. This dog had it's ear hurt in the animal fighting ring. This cow didn't have enough good grass to eat. "I demand you provide better living for your animals, or else I'll have to come visit again and be angry!" Did Nova know of the Little Pandora who was stolen from her own timeline and turned into this? It was odd seeing Occasus using a little child's frozen-in-time body to make her demands. While Vaswald was in the body of a full grown Ellen Winter, Occasus used the body of a 12 year old Pandora Vale.

Ophie and Ayna returned at last, both seeming out of breath. A Baroness was coming for a visit? "I should take my leave then." She gestured to her knights, who sighed and their cards in. "Thank you for your hospitality, Baron Pierce." Monaka said, Baron Pierce taking her hand and kissing the back of her palm. Alice looked at the gesture, curious as to what it meant. She looked back at the others, wondering if they were a relieved as she was that Monaka was leaving at last. "Alice, come say goodbye." Baron Pierce instructed. She slid off of the couch, knowing that she couldn't escape this. Alice followed them to the door, sucking on the candy that Ophie had given her. "Echo!" Cal called, now that they were down three people for poker. "Come play with us!"

"Goodbye Alice," Monaka knelt down, "I know you are happiest here and I want you to stay where you feel safest." She placed her hand on Alice's shoulder and drew her into a hug. "You are always welcome to come home." This was Alice's home though. "Bye," Alice hesitated, then hugged her back. Monaka broke the hug after a minute, rising to her feet. "Come, let us return to the woods." Their wings glistened in the light of the evening sky, they flew so high that they seemed to simply disappear. "Bye, bye." Baron Pierce closed the door behidn him. Alice went back to the parlor, where they were playing cards. Echo had come to join them, wearing what looked to be a cozy outfit.

Alice crawled onto the couch, sitting on Echo's lap this time. "Oh ho ho? What's this?" Cal laughed, "Echo actually letting someone touch her?" Echo stuck her tongue out at him. "It's not someone, it's Alice and she's tiny, so I don't care." Perhaps she was simply starved for human touch after being isolated for so long? The door opened without so much as a knock, in came a herd of animals, led by their patron, Baroness Occasus. "Oh, it's you." Baron Pierce rose, placing his cards down. "I was expecting a visit," Alice slid off of Echo's lap, her eyes wide. Baron Pierce was patient as Occasus made demands of him, he had not known of an animal fighting ring and intended to shut that down immediately.

Alice, in the meanwhile, looked over at Ophie. "Do you know someone named Celeste?" She asked softly, recalling that Baron Pierce had said that Ophie would be interested in this information. "She was on a beach today, on earth. I saw her." Alice went to try and pet the cow, wanting to see if it would let her sit on it. She took Dog and Pog with her, shyly holding out her hand. The cow mooed, its tail swishing. Alice took that as a friendly sign. She reached up, but the cow moved away, settling on the carpet. She followed it, "What is this?" She knew dog and cat now too, but she had never seen something quite like this.

|| Countdown to X Day|| Sound Horizon ||




Occasus went to go complain to Baron Pierce about the treatment and safety of animals in his territory, and in the meantime Ophelia was made to sit next to her friends - if angels had such. There was a sudden pain in her chest, a pulsating. Something was wrong, but she didn't know what. What was this feeling? She never felt it before. Was this what her brother was talking about? Was Laertes in danger somewhere? She sure hoped that that wasn't the case. "Bye." She said curtly to Fae Queen Monaka as she made her leave, but didn't pay much attention to her. She pulled at the throbbing pain on her double ringed halo. It was pulsating. "What the heck, is that your halo?" She nodded grimly, staring up at it. "It has two rings, because I'm an Angel Knight." A class higher than the average knight, but not an archangel like the Angeal family, who had triple rings.

The pulsing only got more painful as Alice asked her a question that made everything made sense. Celeste? Every angel knew Celeste. Some demons knew of her too, but only demons who were around in the Tower Society during the war two hundred years ago. "Ce-Celeste? On a beach today?" She gulped, her heart pounding in her chest, trying to break out of her ribcage. "Where? Beach? Which beach?" She gripped Alice, terror in her eyes. Why would Queen Celty be here? Why would she go to Earth? Was something wrong, did something awful happen? "W-hey. Calm down a little, Ophie." Cal said with a chuckle. "I'm sure it's just-" He didn't know, he wasn't one of the ones in the inner circle who was informed.

"Alice, you have to tell me where she is. Please, this is important." Queen Celeste, in her broken mental state after losing her wife and lover, Queen Kitra, coming down to a demon-infested Earth. There weren't many demons around who were as kind and wonderful as the ones here in Amiens. Even Anguis and Ayna turned into decent guests, though eventually even they would have to return home to Hungary with one another. "Because that's-" She fell silent. She couldn't say it, she didn't want to say it. She didn't want to tell these demons and the fae that the most important person, the Queen of Hell and angel of Heaven, was down on Earth. She needed to go to her. She could feel every cell in her blood screaming at her to go to Celeste right now.

Sonata put an arm on her shoulder, frowning. "Whatever it is, I'm sure it can wait until after tomorrow." Sonata's voice was oddly gentle. "Remember, we need to rest early tonight to be on time for the tea party tomorrow." The tea party where Baronling Feodth would be eliminated from the running, yes, that was important, but not as important as making sure Celeste was okay. "I have... to find her." Ophelia said quietly, her red eyes glowing as she made her halo invisible again. "As soon as the tea party ends I'll go get her."

Alice froze, Ophie had gripped her shoulders, her nails digging into Alice's skin. "O-Ophie," Alice whimpered, trying to step back. Cal broke her free of Ophie's grasp, laughing. Alice pulled away, not wanting to be touched. She hugged Dog against. "I don't know," her voice was quiet. Ever since Baron King Messiah had torn her to shreds, she had been awfully sensitive to pain. Before, something like that wouldn't have even made her flinch. "I just saw a beach," Alice looked at the floor. Sonata was quick to intervene as well, "Hey, you did your best, don't mind Ophie." But the Angel was begging her, she wanted Alice to tell her everything. "That's all I know," Alice took a step back. "Ophie," Cal chided, "you're scaring her."

"Come on Alice, want to look at the cow?" Alice nodded, Cal picking her up so that she could try and sit on the cow. Sonata chided Ophie, telling her it would have to wait until after the tea party tomorrow. Alice culdn't leave the property and would be staying home, not that she wanted to go to Paris. Cal placed her on top of the cow, smiling to himself. "That's not a good idea," Echo said from the doorway, sucking on a lollipop. It seemed she still had her oral fixation, after nearly two hundred years and an evolution, you'd think she would have outgrown it. "Cows can buck if they get mad." Cal blanched and lifted Alice right off of the animal. It seemed Rene had recovered from getting hit by the door, smiling despite the pain she was in. "It's nearly dinner time, if you all want to go to the dining room?"

Alice ran to take her seat, Baron Pierce and Baroness Occasus would be taking dinner in his office and Rene was not going to feed the dozens of animals currently occupying the parlor. Alice would though, she fed the white cat that had followed her into the dining room, sneaking pieces of bread to it. "Can we keep it?" Alice asked, the cat winding around the legs of the chair. It purred, rubbing against Alice's legs. "No, you already have two dogs." Sonata teased, referring to Dog and Pog. Pog was in the top part of Alice's dress while Dog was sitting against the plate, as though he were about to eat up all of Alice's spaghetti and meatballs. "I'm full," Alice had barely eaten half of her food this time.

"Are you sure?" Rene now had a bandage on the bruise on her face. "What about dessert?" Alice squirmed in her seat. "There's always room for dessert!" Rene laughed, "then three more bites." She counted the bites Alice ate, then gave her the dessert. A scoop of ice cream with sprinkles, which Alice gladly dug into. Had Monaka still been there, she would have been chidding them for Alice's lack of fineness and manners. She was a Princess, Monaka would say, so she needed to act like it. "Now I'm really full," she leaned back in her seat, Echo reaching over to steal the rest of her ice cream. "We should talk about a strategy, in case they try to excuse Feodth's behavior." Sonata said darkly, afraid that he wouldn't be disqualified for his atrocious actions.

With panic in her eyes her nails dug into Alice's soft delicate flesh. The way Alice pulled away in fear made Ophelia's grip slacken and guilt pulsed through her chest. How could she do something like that? "I- I'm sorry, I just have to know where she is. It's important that I find Celeste." She was the Queen, she needed to make sure she was safe. Ophelia needed to go and make sure that Celty return to Heaven and wait for her and Laertes to finish the job she assigned for them to do. "Don't worry, petting a cow will help you calm down." Cal said with a bright grinning smile, which faded away quickly when Nova revealed that cows can buck when angry or upset. Why was there even a cow here? How did it follow Occasus all the way here?

Food went by quickly in any case. Ophie helped encourage Alice to eat by offering her a candy, just like the usual ritual that they always do. Now though, Sonata wanted to talk strategy just in case Feodth wasn't eliminated but Ophelia shook her head. She and Ayna already took care of that problem in any case. "No, it's okay. Ayna and I made sure he had no points, and there's not enough time left for him to get more or tomorrow's party." Cal nodded, approving. "That's good. I'm glad we won't have to worry about Rafflesia hurting anyone anymore." It was hard for him to see Sonata become harsher and lose some of the natural light in her eyes because of having to survive the drug like that. "Let's get to bed. It's a long day tomorrow."

The tea party went just as expected, thankfuly. Ophie was first place, because she got Feodth's points, who he stole from multiple other people in his bid to become a Baron. And just as predictably, Feodth was eliminated for having zero points at the end of this month. "A very strong competitor was defeated, and a new month begins." Baron King Messiah commented, sipping his tea somehow with his mouthless face. "There are only two months left, Baronlings. Fight strong, because some of you will have an opportunity to go from Baronling, to Baron." Was he smiling? Was it possible for him to do something like that? "This competition is almost over now."

Quickly Ophelia ducked out. She had something important to attend to. Just like last month when she needed to get Alice out of Magnolia, this time she needed to find Celty before it was too late. Not any demon was as kind as Baron Pierce. What if she ended up with the wrong crowd? "I'm coming too." Laertes said, confirming that he felt the same throbbing pain in his whole body last night. It must be a signal that the Queen was coming, what else could that shared pain of theirs be? "She should be at the ocean." Ophia sad softly, wondering what to do. "Let's try the English Channel first." Laertes suggested, flying westwards.

"Baron Pierce, would you mind waiting a moment?" Messiah asked as he rose from the table. The tea party had been adjourned, the other Barons filing out. "Not at all," he took a seat once more. "Go on, I'll meet you two back at the estate." Sonata and Cal nodded, taking their leave. They knew when they weren't invited and they could only imagine what the King wanted with Pierce. "The Oracle, has she had a vision since returning?" Baron Pierce nodded, there was no use in lying. "Yes, she has had only one since returning." Messiah nodded, he did not ask about what the vision was. "Baron King Messiah, I do appreciate you returning Alice to my care, but I was curious as to why?" It was a question he might regret asking, but Baron Pierce needed to know if Messiah intended to try and take Alice again.

"She needed to be in a place where her abilities would develop and that was not here." Messiah drummed his fingers against the table. "You've merely confirmed what I had been suspecting." Pierce rose, "is there anything else?" He inquired, eager to take his leave. "No, but tell Nova she needs to begin attending the meetings." Pierce nodded, he would relay the message. "You may go," Baron Pierce left, finding Sonata outside, speaking to her parents. Cal was leaning against the wall, chewing gum. "Are you two ready?" He inquired, not wishing to rush Sonata. "Yes!" She called, bounding over, waving back to Doll and Christopher. "We'd like to come see Echo sometime," Baron Pierce nodded. "My door is always open," they left Paris and headed home for Amiens.

Alice was laying in the sun, coloring. Dog and Pog were sitting across from her, each wearing colorful ribbons. "A cat?" She looked up, spotting a white cat outside. "Alice! It's almost lunch time!" Rene called, Alice was coloring in the numbers that Baron Pierce had wanted her to learn, but the cat had her full attention now. "A kitty," she clambered onto the sill, opening up the window. It was the first floor and the parlor windows opened easily, letting in the early fall air. "Kitty!" She waggled her fingers, the cat coming over and brushing against her hand. "I'm gonna keep you," Alice decided, she picked up the cat and placed it on the couch, wondering what she would name it. She looked around for inspiration, turning in a circle.

"Who are you?" The cat had suddenly transformed! "I can sense Ophie's aura," she looked around with wide eyes, Alice knew who this was, she realized. "Celeste?" She clambered onto the couch, holding her two toys, whom she would have consulted for naming help. "Do I know you?" The angel asked, the two gazing at one another. "I saw you in my dreams!" Alice pointed, "And I told Ophie, but she scratched me!" Celeste took Alice's hand in her own. "You know Ophie?" Alice nodded exuberantly. "Alice it's-" Rene paused in her path, her eyes wide. The doors to the estate opened, it seemed Baron Pierce and the others had returned.

Ophelia and Laertes were on the prowl. They made it to the English Channel, where across the sea was London. Once upon a time London was the most important place in humanity, it was where humans made their final stand. Now all they have left is the small island nation of Japan, and would Japan really be enough to win the world back for humanity? Though Ophie was of the opinion that humans were just as bad as demons, if not worse in some aspects. Both races were vicious and sinners, they lacked the sophistication that angels had. The sea crashed against the cliffs and the smell of sea salt was strong for the poor angel's delicate noses. "It's been a long time since we've been to Heaven." Laertes said, looking up at the clouds. Ophelia nodded, understanding the sentiment.

Queen Celeste wasn't here. They went to the wrong beach. A dull thump of pain was in her chest as she realized this. Where was she now? They were supposed to be Celty's primary aides and confidantes as her two personal angel knights. They were sent away to Earth and it's been so long now since they've seen their Queen and Master. "Only two months left. Then we can spring our trap." The Baron Exams would be on. Once, the siblings were to compete against each other to try and kill Messiah first but they came to an unspoken agreement that they needed to work together. After seeing more of Baron King Messiah, they realized the threat he was, that they couldn't beat him without help. "Be careful, sister." Laertes warned, his red eyes locking with hers. "Make sure no one finds out you have that knife." She frowned and looked back at him. "You're the one hiding under plain sight. You can't let him find out who you are."

Suddenly Ophelia's phone went off. She was given it by Baron Pierce when she agreed to become his Baronling. It was to be used when it was necessary to reach the others for whatever reason. "Hello? Baron Pierce?" She asked, looking at his holo projection as it appeared next to the angel siblings. "We found Celeste. You should come quickly back to Amiens." The painful throbbing of their halos dissipated as he gave the news. "We're on our way. Thanks, Pierce." Laertes said with a sudden beaming grin. The two siblings couldn't help but feel giddy as the reunion with their beloved Master was nigh. "Let's hurry back." Ophie implored and he nodded, his wings expanding from his back.

It was evening when Ophelia and Laertes arrived at Baron Pierce's Estate in Amiens. Calciferous and Sonata grabbed them, taking them in, both of them grinning from ear to ear. For once, the Amiens house was back to being full of life and jubilance, unlike the tense truce there was between the demons and the fae folk. "Celeste is -" How much was she allowed to say? In either case, they were taken to where Celty was allowed to wait for them in the parlor, already a glass of sparkling water in her hands thanks to Rene. "Que - Celeste!" Ophelia cried, running to her master and going onto her knees, Laertes mirroring her movements. They both knelt their heads, and waited to be addressed.
