”Leo”

Image

Maybe miracles do happen




Full name: Cyrus Nicholas LauveImage
Nicknames: Leo, Cypress, Nic
Age: 26
Gender: Male
Occupation: Lion tamer

Appearance:

Eye color: Dark brown but in stage wears golden contacts to match Zari's fur
Hair: He has short, brown hair

Build:
He's 183cm tall and has pretty muscular body from all the farm work he has done.

Distinguishable features:


Outfit:
While performing he wears a blue tuxedo with a white shirt. However behind the stages you can see him in ordinary clothes. Most often he wears a t-shirt with a pair of sweatpants since they're comfortable while he plays around with Zari.

FC: Ben Barnes




Tomorrow is tomorrow. Why worry it now?



Personality:
As a former country boy, he's laid back but hardworking and has a good sense of humour. He doesn't take his life too serious and prefers to live a simple life. He has carefree attitude and isn't really concerned about the future or even the next day. He takes one day and one task at time and rarely makes plans. He's also a bit absent-minded and forgetful. It's not rare to see him just laying on the grass behind the tents alone, watching sky and thinking his life, Zari and circus.

He gets along with animals as well as people. But even if Cyrus gets along with others easily, he still prefers not to talk to them unless it's really important. He's also not used to be in big crowds so being circus performer is still making him nervous. He never talks with the audience members after show, only performs with Zari and hides to the backstage. It's not easy to get him open up about fears either.

Likes
β—Š Zari – he loves the female lion more than anything
β—Š Nature – Cyrus' always been country boy
β—Š Mythical creatures – he's curious about everything a human eye can't see
β—Š Pizza – He never ate it at home, so when the circus crew ordered some
Cyrus found a new favourite dish
β—Š Sunrises – Every new day is a new start and filled with hope

Secret:
Cyrus can actually understand some animals if he has a bond strong enough
with them. He's not talking to them in their language, it's more like hearing
their thoughts in his mind.
Dislikes
♦ Animal abusing – He gets easily angry when seeing something like that
♦ Plums – He thinks they always taste rotten
♦ Thunder – It makes most of the animals go crazy and he has to try calm
them down
♦ Large crowds - They make him nervous
♦ Rock music – He's never been a fan of it

Worst fear:
Afterlife - He's not scared of dying itself but what comes after it. Cyrus is
afraid that he hasn't lived his life well enough to earn eternal rest and
peace but ends up being stuck in earth wandering aimlessly.


Abilities:

Skills
β™₯ Animal taming – not only with Zari but he's good at handling almost every
animal. Some say he can speak to them.
β™₯ Riding – He's been with horses as long as he remembers
β™₯ Strength – He's physically strong since he's been working with his hands
most of his life
Flaws
β™  Often late - Because of his carefree lifestyle he's never on time
β™  Rarely talks to anyone - He prefers to spend time with the animals than
have a conversation with someone else
β™  Singing – He likes to sing but no one else wants to hear when he does



Animals are like children. They need to be taken care of.



History:

Image
He lived a happy childhood growing up in a small farm with sheeps, horses, cats, dogs and chickens. It wasn't rare to see him helping in the neighbours cattle farm either. Cyrus loved all the animals and learned how to ride a horse in young age. He enjoyed galloping on the hills and did it every time he had a chance.

At the age of 17 he applied for a job at zoo. He got the job and it was his dream coming true. At first he took care of rodents but quickly got to work with other animals like donkeys and camels. Seeing his skills and calmness with the animals he was moved to work with big cats - and fell in love. He often spend his days playing with them and even when his shift was over or when it was his day off he still went to take care of them and enjoyed every moment with the lions, leopards and tigers.


ImageHe then heard from the news that there had been mysterious accident on the Circus during the lion taming show. The lion tamer ended up to his death but nothing was showing it was the lion's fault. There was also noted that with no one else to take care of the lion the Circus had to put it down. Wanting to prevent this destiny of gorgeous feline, he took a phone in his hand and asked to come and prove his skills.

Cyrus still remembers the first time he met six-year-old Zari – the lion queen. It was a shock to him that the lion was actually female. Because male lions looked better at shows they used a fake mane. However it was clear that the animal was upset from the death of previous tamer. Cyrus wasn't scared of the lion – he had already worked with them and he knew Zari was tamed. What worried him was if he could prove himself to her. The first three days he let her be in the cage, feed and petted her as well as talked her. He talked her a lot – about who he was, stories from the zoo, even weather. He wanted Zari to get familiar with his voice and presence. After the third day he opened her cage. He did nothing else. He continued to do exact same things as before allowing her to came out when she felt like it. It took two more days before Zari stepped out of the cage. It was the moment changing his life.

Now he has been with the circus a little over two years. He loves Zari more than anything else and is always taking care of her and playing with her.

So begins...

What she's wearing: The Outfit β–ͺ Music: Trevor Morris - A Historic Love

The Past: Part 1

During the beginning of Autumn, the wealthiest family in Bulgaria had invited Milena's family to attend their ball. She had been to a couple before, but this wealthy family had a home fit for royalty. They had expensive looking furniture, deep red royal curtains that covered the windows in drapes, and real silverware. Milena's family were also noble, and very comfortable with money.. but nothing like this. The most expensive item that she wore tonight, was her jewelry that hung from her ears, and neck. They were a gift from the man she had been courting for a few years now, and they sparkled with every slight little movement she took. They were perfect, and a also a sign that she was soon to be engaged. Her heart was racing at just the mere thought of him proposing to her.

The room soon filled with a beautiful melody that came from an orchestra in the corner of the room, and people began to gently grab their partners before heading to the center of the room to dance. Their moves were graceful, and elegant as they seemed to glide over the polish marbled floor in their ball gowns fit for princesses. Even the men in the room looked like princes in their own attire. Just think, Milena had almost turned down her invitation tonight. Luckily she hadn't.. her lover had arrived.

Milena found it impossible to tear her eyes away from him as he made his way through the main archway. He was no doubt the most handsome man in the room, and even Bulgaria. Other women were looking at him as he made his way towards the one woman his heart was purely devoted to. "Hello." She said softly with a smile, causing her love to smile back in return, but much brighter. That same hello was the one she had given him the first time they had met. He took her hand in his delicately, then placed a kiss upon the back of her hand while bowing slightly to her, but his eyes remaining on hers as she gave a beautiful little curtsy. "My, Lady.. would you care to dance with a man that has had his heart stolen by you?" Ben had always been the charmer with his words. She chuckled. "It would be an honor, my Lord." so he lead her to the dance floor, and every woman in the room seemed to turn green with jealously, and Milena was smirking at that as she molded her delicate little frame to his manly build, now embracing each other lovingly as they slow dance the night away.

Image
The Past: Part 2
When the music stopped, Milena turned slightly to glance over her shoulder to see why the room had suddenly gone quiet. There was a man walking down the grand stairs, and the way everyone acted to his arrival, made him seem like he was royalty. "His name is Lord Tarkenton. I believe he came from England." Ben told her. "Why would he come to Bulgaria?" Ben took her hand, as he saw the other women practically swooning over the new comer. "He's looking for a wife. So I heard. He loves the European women." Milena remained close to her love as Lord Tarkenton made his way over to them, then bowed to Ben before he looked to the woman beside him. "So this is Lady Andonova." She curtsied politely to him, but remained at Ben's side. "The word of your beauty travels across the seas." he told her, but she didn't care for stories. "Now I see those stories are more than just rumors." Milena restrained herself from rolling her eyes. His words were not going to cause her to act like the other women who were in the room, practically falling over heels to just get a glance of him. "This is my fiance to be.. Lord Balakov." The man smiled at Ben. "I see. Well, I hope you both enjoy the rest of your evening." with that, he left them to return back to their dancing. "He seemed disappointed." Ben smirked, causing Milena to chuckle as they returned back to each others company.

"My love, would you accompany me out in the garden? I need to feel the fresh air upon my face." She was fanning herself with the little hand held fan that was attached around her wrist by a thick piece of string. It was a gift from her mother, and each little material'd blade was covered in a beautiful design, laced across the edges, and a peacock feather for the center piece. He nodded his head once to go with her, so she linked his arm, and headed outside with that man watching them closely.

Once out in the garden, she felt much cooler, and more relaxed. It was just too warm inside with the amount of guests that had shown up to the ball. So this was that mans new home? She wished her family could of come to enjoy the evening too, but they were on their honeymoon, and the invitation only allowed one person to be invited with the invited. This garden was beautiful with the amount of flowers around the large grounds, and other plants. Right in the center of it all, was a large beautifully carved fountain that flowed sparkling water over all of it's six tiers. It was of a woman in the nude that had long hair covering her breasts as her hand was pressed against the nose of the horse. But it wasn't just any horse, it was a beautiful majestic unicorn that she had heard stories about. People believed they were just myths, and legends, but Milena believed that she saw one once when she was just ten years old. Of course no one believed her, because children had a tendency for very vivid imaginations.

"I will love you forever." Ben told her as both of his hands cupped her face, causing her to look at him. Their eyes were deeply lost in one of another, before he slowly leaned in to kiss her. They closed their eyes, and began to slowly kiss one another passionately. She could feel how much he truly loved her, just by the way he held her like she was delicate, and the way his lips maneuvered with her own in unison. "I'm in love with you." She whispered on his lips. Next thing that happened.. she didn't expect. That man from earlier was behind Ben all of a sudden when they parted from their kiss, causing her to gasp in shock. She then covered her mouth quickly as she let out a scream as she watched him force his hand through Ben's chest, and tearing out his heart. Tears streamed down her eyes as she watched the light leave his eyes, then fell to the ground lifeless. Terrified, she ran from him with her hands lifting the front of her dress as she ran through the garden. Their was a back way to getting out of this place. She couldn't believe Ben was dead. She slipped into the maze nearby, and hid behind the foliage, silently crying so that monster couldn't find her. Her heart was breaking into a thousand pieces. It wasn't long until he found her, and grabbed her, covering her mouth with his hand so she couldn't scream.

The Present

Milena had been in her office the entire time, working on paper work and waiting for the others to turn up so she could interview them. As the clock ticked away in the background, Milena wrote down everything that needed to be dealt with into her planner. Today was going to be busy if people turned up to work with her. This Circus was in desperate need of new performers.

The second she stepped outside of her office to get some fresh air, she froze on the spot. It looked like she had seen a ghost. One of the new comers looked exactly like her past love, like he was the doppelganger of him. No, I'm just stressed from such a long day. He's not there.. he's not. she thought, and closed her eyes for a moment, waiting for him to disappear. But he didn't. Milena couldn't move. She remembered waking up as something she didn't understand, some kind of monster that hungered for blood. She had returned to where her boyfriend lay dead on the ground, his heart missing from his chest. As she held him in her arms, she was begging him to come back to her as she rocked herself, and him. "Please.. come back. I can't live without you. I need you. I love you, I love you so much." she sobbed, and leaned down, kissing him one last time before that monster inside of her woke again. She flipped off her humanity, and headed straight to the ball. It was a complete blood bath with thousands of bodies inside the building, and out, but the one she really wanted to kill was long gone. She'd find him one day, because she was determined to rip out his own heart, just like he did to Ben.

She didn't notice that she was staring at him at first, but managed to call out to him. ".. you remind me of someone I used to know. What's your name?"

P A R T † O N E
Mercy stood at the foot of her stairs looking up at the home before her, just wishing that she would become lucky enough one day to own a place just as luxurious as this one. But of course, with her family being in poverty, she knew that wasn't going to happen for a very long time, probably not even in her life time. Everything in London always seemed to come much harder, no matter what your dreams seemed to be. This was something she learned to get used to as she grew older.

As she stood there, staring up at the house, Mercy spotted a very attractive man stick his head out the window, he spotted her. Immediately her heart skipped a beat and she darted in the other direction. But soon enough he called out to her, "Hey, wait!" were the only words she heard before she suddenly found herself skidding to a halt. The reasons why she actually listened to what he had to say were unknown to her, but it felt like something she should do.

Mercy returned to her spot on the sidewalk, being careful to be out of the way of carriages as they sped by. The last thing she wanted to do was disturb a horse and get trampled. The blonde stood there, waiting on the wealthy male to approach her. Finally after a couple very long moments he stepped out of the home. "Why were you staring at my house?" he questioned. Mercy shrugged her shoulders before answering his question. "I was just imagining what it would be like to be wealthy, to be out of poverty. I'm sorry I disturbed you," she stated before turning on her heels and started to cross the street once more.

The next thing she knew she was knocked unconscious, by what, she wasn't exactly sure of.

P A R T † T W O
Mercy awoke to the sound of women's whispers. Her hazel eyes slowly opened and began glancing around at the room she was in. The entire room looked futuristic, unknown, everything was different. There were loud noises outside the building that didn't seem to make any sense to her. The women were wearing skirts that showed their ankles, that was definitely looked down upon! She wasn't sure what was going on, where she was. The last thing she remembered was crossing the street from that man's luxurious home.

"She's awake," a thick, blonde woman stated to the others as she began making her way to the side of the bed. "Good afternoon Miss Mercy. Happy for you to join us," the woman stated. Mercy slowly sat up as she looked between the three women circling her bed. "Um, where exactly am I?" "Oh darling, you're still in London. You were past out for a long time now. A couple hundred years come to think of it, that's what Master said," the younger looking brunette chimed in. She looked as if she were in her mid teens. "And who is this Master?" she questioned just as the male she remembered stepped into the room.

"Ah, you're finally awake," he glanced at the women and spoke once more, "Leave. I need to speak to this woman in private." The three women did just as they were asked and left the room, closing the door behind them. "What did you do to me?" Mercy demanded.

The tall, bleach blonde male before her let out a soft chuckle before answering her question. "Why, all I did was give you what you wanted. I stopped your aging process and brought you to the future in order for you to live out a life that you always wanted. All that's left for you to do is go out and pursue said life."
Image
P R E S E N T
Mercy let out a calming sigh as she stood in front of the circus. She heard they were taking interviews for new performers and she figured that she mind as well give it a shot. Besides, she mind as well put her fire abilities to some good use. She was already really great at fire dancing, she could go for that position. The blonde shrugged her shoulders and stepped foot onto the grounds and began roaming her way through the circus, following the arrows and signs pointing to the office where the interviews were to be taken.

As she made her way through the grounds, all the tents, rides, concession stands, and activity booths all stood out to her. Every person who run these things were going to become the people she spent most of her time with if she gets this job. Was it really going to be worth all of this? Was this the place that was finally going to make her happy? Honestly at this point, she wasn't even completely sure.

After a couple minutes, she approached the office and took a seat on one of the benches outside the tent with the other interviewees.

She had felt bad for leaving Dustin so abruptly like that, but there would be plenty of times where she wouldn't be so busy flitting around the Circus grounds. Plus, she couldn't just leave her friend without checking on her.

Milena could not believe what she was listening to. So the same magician that had taken her friends life was here at the Circus? it wasn't possible, was it? "Are you sure? because you've been working so hard lately. You may be under stress, and just.. need to relax a little." If Sage was going to say it was true, then Milena would take her word for it, and trust her. Sage was the only person she did trust, apart from Cyrus. She could trust him also with the both of them being like family.

"Oh God Mil, I'm sorry. I was literally on my way to help you when I saw him." Milena didn't mind that she got side tracked, especially with this. If it was true!? then it was slightly more important than a couple of interviews, because what Sage had told her about him? concluded that he was a very dangerous man who wasn't to be underestimated, or taken a fool of. "It's fine. Don't worry about it." She reassured her softly. "Alright, Let's go!" Milena followed her, and smiled at her question, "Anyone look promising?" They both did. At the moment, both look promising.. and.. one looks like Ben." Milena had told her friend about the past before, so she'd know who she was on about.

As the both of them headed towards Milena's office, they passed Cyrus on the way, and wishing him a good morning back before she laughed at his comment. "Don't worry, Cyrus, you'll always have that job. The animals have grown attached to you therefore they trust you, so I trust you." she linked arms with Sage as they carried on to walk.

"Are you sure? because you've been working so hard lately. You may be under stress, and just.. need to relax a little." Milena questioned. She didn't blame her, it was definitely hard to believe for sure. But the one face you don't forget is the one of the person responsible for your death. Sage stepped closer to Milena to speak in hushed tones incase someone was near by, "I know what I saw. He was standing before me as clear as you are... He laughed as I ran away." She couldn't mask the fear in her eyes, "If he's here... I have no idea what other souls are trapped here. So many have died here." She made a plan to talk to Mil about it later when they had more time to be alone, but as of right now they had newbies to interview.

As they began to head back towards Milena's office, Sage froze mid step when her friend said, "...One looks like Ben." She couldn't hide the grin that slowly began to creep onto her face, nudging Mil in the shoulder with her elbow, "Heyyy... That could be promising." She laughed softly, before leaning in to whisper in her ear, "Is he hot?"

Just after taunting her friend, Cyrus walked past heading towards the animals' ”You better not hire someone in my place Milena. Or I might come after you with this” Then he held up the mop, Sage couldn't help but chuckle, "Becareful... 'You'll shoot your eye out kid'!" Before he headed towards Zari, Cyrus added, "And Sage. You look promising today." Sage couldn't help but blush slightly at the comment and wink, while giggling softly. When she heard him mention about Zari being tired she called out over her shoulder to him before Mil and her went towards the office, "That's my fault... we were snuggling!"

Not paying 100% attention to Milena, the first time she tried to link arms with Sage it just passed right through her. Her eyes widened, "Oh shit, sorry." She whispered followed by a chuckle. She then hooked her arm with Mil, this time her arm was actually "there." "Let's go intimidate some newbies!" She grinned evilly towards her companion as they headed towards the interviewees.

Cyrus pushed Zari gently away from the cage in order to clean it. He still kept on eye on it. Even if Zari rarely left far it had happened twice during his time. For now the lion just lied on the ground yawning. He was quietly humming while working as he usually did. He enjoyed it himself even though no one else usually did as he wasn't very musical. Zari let out irritated meow. Cyrus chukled. ”So even you still don't like it.”

He finished cleaning and was about to take the old straws away. ”Stay here, you little troublemaker, okay?” Cyrus said joking to the feline and headed away. He threw the used straws away and went to get new ones as well as some meat for Zari. As he got back however he froze. Zari was nowhere to be seen. ”Shit.” he cursed softly and threw the straws into her cage quickly – he could put them properly later. Now, it was most important to find Zari.

Cyrus took a piece of meat with him. It would help him to lure the lion back to the cage. It was still easy to follow her tracks since the large paws had been pressing the ground under them. The tracks were leading towards the offices. ”Oh great. I hope none of the newbies are afraid of cats.” he spoke to himself wondering what Milena would say as she saw Zari out.

"Sorry to keep you waiting," Milena said to the newbies while unhooking her arm from Sage's, then added, "Sage will take Mercy, and I'll take Dustin."Her friend looked towards her with a smile, Sage wanted to soooo badly tease her friend Uh, sure you take the hottie that looks like a past lover. She shook her head trying not to laugh, before shifting her attention to the woman Milena called Mercy, "Hello, Mercy is it? I am Sage. It's a pleasure to meet you." She extended her right hand towards the girl. Once the introductions were over, she motioned for the girl to follow her, "This way." She held open the doorway curtain to an adjacent tent, glancing over her shoulder, her eyes widened when she saw Zari heading towards them. "If you wouldn't mind waiting in here for just one moment, I have to taken of a pressing matter."

Once Mercy was inside and couldn't see what Sage was doing, she pivoted on her heels and jogged over towards the lion. When she was close enough she came to a sliding halt on her knees, bringing her hands up to rub the large cat's ears, "What are you doing out here little miss?" Zari took no hesitation to plopping down on the ground right there, resting her massive head in Sage's lap. She began to pet her head, "Cyrus won't be too happy with you wondering you know that?" The lioness was smart and knew a bit of what she was saying as she looked up Sage and began to purr. "Yeah, yeah. I missed you too."

Sage continued to pet Zari, keeping her calm and happy, assuming Cyrus would appear any moment looking for his lost companion. Zari was no where near mean, well at least to her but she had no idea how the girl would act around new comers even though Sage sensed that she was just curious as to who else was here, nothing more. But she had no idea what Mercy or Dustin would think of a massive lion roaming about the grounds. They didn't need to scare off the few people interested in joining, this circus needed more talent if it is to keep a float. With a sigh Sage watched the lion get heavy eyed in her lap, "That's a good girl," She whispered while caressing the lioness' head with her hand.

As he got closer to the office tents he saw Zari laying her head on Sage's lap. Smiling he tried to sneak behind her back without the girl noticing him. When he was closer, Cyrus spoke. ”But Zari, are you trying to make me jealous? You know I wouldn't mind laying my head on Sage's lap.” he said joking flashing a smile to both of them. For the two years he had been in the circus he had grew fond of Sage. She was often with the animals and they seemed to like her, especially Zari. Sometimes they talked, sometimes Cyrus was just feeding the lioness while Sage petted her without saying a word each other. He had never minded that, quite the opposite in fact. He enjoeyd the peaceful bond the three of them shared. There had been times he had even tought Zari as their child.

”You know, she really likes you. Probably even more than me” Cyrus said laughing a bit to Sage as he threw a small piece of meat near the lion that chomped it down in one piece. ”You glutton,” he chuckled to Zari and turned back to Sage. ”Thanks for stopping her. I'm sorry for the trouble but she sneaked out while I was cleaning her cage. Probably smelled the new people. But, yeah, thanks. I don't know what would happen if they or Milena had seen her first.” Cyrus was looking quite embarrassed.

”Come on my Lion Queen. Let's leave Sage back to work.” he said petting the feline that stood up rubbing her large her on his waist purring a little. Cyrus smiled to Sage. ”Have fun with the newbies. I see you later and ou can tell me how it went?” He then left using another piece of meat to make Zari follow him. Most likely it would have done it anyway but Cyrus didn't want to risk the lion running away again.

Sage smiled down at the big snuggler when Cyrus showed up saying, ”But Zari, are you trying to make me jealous? You know I wouldn't mind laying my head on Sage's lap.” She glanced up beneath her brunette locks, smiling towards him, "My lap is a high honored position. Only the best of the best can rest their head here. Isn't that right girl?" She rubbed Zari's ears before leaning down to give her a kiss on the muzzle. Sage would have been happier staying right there with her fluffy buddy and Cyrus. She always seemed to disappear to the animal tent with the 2 of them when she felt overwhelmed and she definitely was at the time. But she was hiding it well. As much as she wanted to share her secrets with him she couldn't. If anything it'd just put him in danger.

As Sage moved the lioness' head off her lap she heard Cyrus say ”You know, she really likes you. Probably even more than me” She couldn't hide the blush that grew on her cheeks as she moved to her feet, dusting off her pants. "I'm pretty sure Milena has you both beat." She peered over at him with a playful smirk. ”Thanks for stopping her. I'm sorry for the trouble but she sneaked out while I was cleaning her cage. Probably smelled the new people. But, yeah, thanks. I don't know what would happen if they or Milena had seen her first.” She shrugged her shoulders, "It's alright. She's just a curious girl. Milena probably wouldn't have been upset but I don't know how newbies would handle a large lion just strolling through the grounds." Cyrus added one more thing before heading back to the animal tent, ”Come on my Lion Queen. Let's leave Sage back to work. Have fun with the newbies. I'll see you later and you can tell me how it went?” She nodded her head, "I'll come by when it's all over. Sneak my girl some treats." She smirked before giving Zari one final kiss.

She then turned back towards the tent where Mercy waited, sprinting back towards it and entering in through the opening in the doorway, "I'm so sorry. A lion... Well she was out and I didn't know you or the other guy were about wild animals, but freaking out just scares her. But she knows me so I kept her company until the tamer showed up." Sage saw no reason in lying, especially when this girl might be working there. She motioned for Mercy to take a seat in a chair, while she herself took a seat a few feet away. "So, what made you interested in the Circus?" She smiled, "And what new talent would you bring?"

She could of thanked the heavens for bringing this man to her Circus, and even more so the way he carried himself with his handsome, dashing looks. Milena had gotten straight down to business because she didn't want the poor man to think that she was a psychopath for being so obsessed as to finding out every little detail about him. She had only met him for five minutes or so. Her stomach was knotting with nerves.. she had never been so nervous in her entire life. "I'm really passionate about the circus industry. I think it needs to thrive, as they have the capacity to. And not just any circus but Acapulco Circus." as she listened to him closely, she found her arms upon her desk, leaning a little towards him as if she was straining to hear him a little, but she was busy watching how his lips danced over his little speech for just a quick moment so it didn't look like she was staring. She smiled warmly at him, and gently flickered her eyes up to his.

Dustin placed his arms on the desk that separated them. "Um, no." Dustin looked up to Milena. "In reality I just really need a job and a new start, you know?" Milena nodded to him, shuffling forward a little in her seat, then watched his eyes scan hers before he averted his gaze to his hands that clenched uncomfortably, and Milena smirking a little. She thought he was adorable, and she was already impressed by him, so hopefully Sage liked Mercy just as much. Cyrus was already a fantastic addition to their family, and Milena knew all too well of his crush on Sage. It was cute. "But I'm not totally useless. It appears I have some pretty good marksmen skills," he confessed. Milena raised her brows. "Can you.. demonstrate for me please?" she asked him politely, and excitedly, wanting to see. "If there's anything you need!? - I'll get it for you."

Cyrus lead Zari back to the cage and finished cleaning it and gave the lioness some meat. He was smiling whole time he worked, mostly because of Sage. He liked her and flirted her often but had never had courage to ask her on a date or anything like that. He felt there hadn't been a right timing. Or maybe it was simply because he was scared of the answer. He had a feeling Sage had feelings towards him as well but there was something she was hiding. Cyrus didn't know what it was but he had noticed there was something bothering her every now and then.

As Zari laid on the clean straws Cyrus laid next to her, laying his head on her back. "Do you think a dinner in candlelight would work?" Zari let out a weird sound, almost sounding like laugh. "Yeah, you're right. I can't cook anything but pizza. Maybe it's not that clever to try impress her with something I can't do. Mmh... A picnic? We could ride some place." Cyrus was talking to Zari thinking different possibilities. "Though, can she even ride? I'm not sure.... I need to figure out something else in case she can't. I'm not even sure what she likes. She's so quiet about herself don't you agree?" Cyrus was staring up and sighed. Plans didn't help anything if he couldn't gather the courage to ask her out.

He closed his eyes relaxing with the feline. He could take a short nap while waiting Sage to come. Zari was purring quietly enjoying his company. Slowly he was falling asleep.

"Well, how would you feel about being my volunteer? Just in here so there's no fuss. I can work with a pen and apple?" She definitely liked him already, because he could work with whatever there was around him, and that could one day come in handy if he wanted to shock his audience even more with his skills. "Absolutely." She told him confidently. She was a vampire after all, so it wasn't like anything was going to harm her unless he aimed at her heart. Then again.. getting a pen to go through a chest cavity while being human was going to be quite impossible anyway.

Milena got the apple and the pen from her desk, then wandered around to where he was with them in her hand as he rose from his seat. A smile was stuck in place as she came much closer to him with his requested items. "You never formally introduced yourself by the way," her smile slowly faded a little. She realized that her manners the entire time had gone out of the window. She felt bad also for acting strangely odd, so she furrowed her brows, parted her lips, and gently began to apologize. "You're right.. I am truly sorry. My head is high up in the clouds today. I'm Milena." She moved to hold the pen with the apple in the same hand, and held out her free hand for him. "Milena Andonova."

When the interviews are over, Milena was going to have to assign everyone with some chores, because the Circus was lacking grounds keepers for now. In all honesty? she was nervous, what if she couldn't get this show back on the road? what if the previous owners were disappointed in her way of running things? - while mentally shaking her inner thoughts away, Milena paid attention to Dustin again.

All of a sudden.. the room went extremely cold, because the warm air from her mouth had come out like a cloud of smoke. With her body still facing Dustin, her eyes turned slightly to the right, and up at the clock that hung on the wall. The hands were slowly moving by themselves, and didn't stop until the clock began to chime six times. Was that a sign for something? she'd have to mention this to Sage later on, and they'd have to keep it to themselves for now. Especially from the new comers. Milena didn't want to scare them off with the thought of this place being haunted. Maybe they were into that sort of thing? still.. she couldn't take the risk. This Circus was in dire need of attention and spotlight again.

Cyrus woke up when hearing Zari growl and stare in the corner of the tent. ”What is it girl? Seeing ghosts?” He joked. Immediately one of the tent's support came crushing down, Zari let out loud, scared meow. ”HOLY SHIT!” Cyrus yelled as the dust on the ground was now flowing on the air. He stared the sight for a bit trying to realize what had happened. It had only been one grider from the corner so the tent itself stayed still up and no much harm was done.

He shook his head in disbelief. How could a sturdy structure fall apart that easily? The farm where he had lived had nothing but wooden buildings and he had never seen anything like that. He breathed rapidly, his heart was racing fast. ”Okay, calm down, it was just an accident.” he spoke aloud and kneeled next to Zari that was going wild. ”Hey, calm down kitty.” Cyrus spoke gently and calming while petting her. ”Nothing is going to happen, I know you're scared but we will fix that and it's going to be a good as new.”

After Zari was getting calmer, Cyrus opened the cage and put her on a leash. Something her didn't like to do but right now it was safer to get both of them out. He had to find someone who could tell if the tent was safe or not before letting Zari back there. Who knew when the next piece would fall down. He walked outside with her heading back of the tent looking the corner. To him it didn't seem like vandalism. Of course it was a possibility but he couldn't believe it and thought it just as an accident. Shrugging he he headed to Milena's office Zari following him in the leash.

He knocked on the wood and peeked in holding Zari behind him. "Hey, sorry to disturb, we were having a bit of situation over there. The tent fell apart. Well partly." Zari let out a growl like protesting the bad condition where she was supposed to live. Cyrus looked over at the man she had been in with. "Hello, I'm Cyrus, Lion tamer. The one hiding behind me is Zari. And I don't know if that witch" he smirked joking, "is going to let you join but nice to meet you anyways."

Sage sat forward in her chair, resting her chin in the palm of her hand as she watched the girl begin to dance around with the flames. She couldn't help but be curious as to where the flames came from though. With no evidence of matches or a lighter, she wondered if it was magic. She battled internally between asking the Mercy or just letting it slide. But by the time she finished her little preview of her capabilities, Sage being the polite person she was, clapped her hands with a smile. "Wonderfully executed." Deciding that she didn't know the woman well enough, she didn't ask about the origins of the flames because having her own secrets, she knew not to put people on the spot.

Standing from her seat, Sage closed the distance between her and Mercy, extending a right hand in her direction, "Well I have to run it by Milena. But as far as I'm concerned, you got the job." Just after offering Mercy the job, she heard a crashing that sounded like it came from another tent. Her eyes widened and she didn't hesitate to run over towards the entrance of the tent they were in, stepping out onto the Circus grounds. She watched Cyrus, with Zari leashed behind him, head towards Milena's office. Sage couldn't help but over hear the conversation held between the 2. She hated having to interrupt or intrude on the interview Milena was having with her past lover's Doppelganger but she was worried. Stepping up beside Cyrus, she leaned in the tent entrance, "Milena... I can go check it out if you want." She motioned in the direction of the half collapsed tent, "I finished up with Mercy. I told her you had the final say so, but as far as I'm concerned she has the job." She then glanced over at Dustin, smiling apologetically, "Apologies for interrupting your interview."

Sage jogged back over to the tent that Mercy was still in, "I am probably the worst interviewer ever." She chuckled, "I'm sorry for my constant disappearances. We're just very short staffed if you hadn't noticed." She backed towards the tent opening, holding back the flap for Mercy, "I have to go check on a tent... malfunction? But Milena should be finished shortly. And then she'll let you know 100% if you got the job." She smiled towards Mercy as she headed towards the collapsed tent, "Don't worry about it. I'm sure she'll hire you."

Sage then headed towards the animal tent. Glancing around to make sure no one was around, she allowed herself to go invisible which let her pass through objects easily. She figured it'd just be a better idea in case the whole tent came down, if it wouldn't crush her under the beams. Although that wouldn't kill her, that'd be hard to explain how she survived having a circus tent collapse on her and walk away without a single cut or bruise.

He didn't mind her missing the whole formal introduction on her half, after all he had done it himself with Mercy, but he just shook her hand and nodded in acknowledgement of receiving her name from her own mouth this time. Milena Andonova Dustin slowly took the items from her as she seemed temporarily in her own reflective world, but Dustin would just like the whole process to be over with. Get out of the tent and on with life then be free.

He didn't miss the sudden chill, when he crossed his arms over his chest as he waited to have Milena's attention again. Her mind seemed everywhere but on the task at hand. And he knew something was weird about the circus as both a gut feeling and the whole bizarre near death experience, just not the characters within it as such. Even the sudden cold nerved him because the feeling felt familiar and associated with his slow bleeding out process.

When a crashing type of sound was heard, Dustin jolted to life waiting for some other disaster to follow though he didn't know what but for a while it seemed quiet and nothing followed the event, which was almost more weird. He looked to Milena expectantly for her to start some explanation but he turned to see a man enter."Hey, sorry to disturb, we were having a bit of situation over there. The tent fell apart. Well partly." Were tents supposed to collapse often here? Dustin was betting not. Like he wasn't betting on a lioness accompanying the man. His eyes lit up with wonder and amazement. She looked to be a beautiful creature with personality but one he'd have to wait to interact with.

"Hello, I'm Cyrus, Lion tamer. The one hiding behind me is Zari. And I don't know if that witch is going to let you join but nice to meet you anyways." Dustin smiled as the man went from reporting bad news to polite and playful introductions. Pretty soon, the woman as Sage came in saying she could check it out instead then looked to Dustin, "Apologies for interrupting your interview." Dustin shrugged lightly in response. It was nothing and by the way she ran off in another direction, he assumed she self-employed herself to the task.

Dustin stood there awkwardly unsure what was left for him to do with all the temporary chaos that they seemed to undermine. He would've excused himself and dismissed himself outside of Milena's office so Cyrus and her could talk more on the matter but there was a whole big wild cat near the entrance and exit. Dustin didn't fear them, especially since it's nothing he'd have to consider much every other day of his life but wasn't something he was keen on passing so casually either. So he was uncomfortably plastered in place.

Milena was about to get the demonstration of Dustin's skills, but they soon turned their attention to a flustered looking Cyrus, who always managed to have a sense of humor during even the most stressful of times. She chuckled with Cyrus calling her a witch jokingly.

She couldn't believe that the Circus was literally falling apart, were times really that bad? starting Monday, the show was going to have to go on, even if there aren't other acts. Their own skills would have to do for now, and Milena could feel that even those were good enough for entertainment, even if she hadn't seen Dustin's or Mercy's talent yet.

Sage was the next one to come into her office, proposing that she could take care of it. Milena didn't even have to answer, because Sage knew exactly what her answer would of been with trusting her, and knowing her the longest.

Once that was dealt with, Milena looked up at the ceiling of her own tent, hoping this part of it wouldn't collapse also. Her attention now turned back to Dustin once her office was free again as Sage, and Cyrus took care of the partly fallen tent near to Zari's living quarters. That lioness was beautiful, and the softest wild cat in the world no doubt.

"Right, where were we? ah yes.. the demonstration. Where would you like me?" she asked him gently. She'd get to Mercy after this, because she knew Sage would of unwillingly left the girl waiting for Milena to come to a final decision.

Before Milena was able to answer and Cyrus had time to thank Sage, the woman was running towards the tent. He left Milena continue with the interviews wondering what to do. He wanted to go to tents to hear if Sage could figure out what had happened, but Zari was clearly acting still too nervous for him to take her there. And knowing the newbies might not like a lion roaming free he decided to stick with her.

As he walked with Zari, he saw a girl – probably another one who had came here for job – playing with fire. Observing her from further away, Curys tried to figure out how she did it. He didn't see any devices but as many other circus tricks they were all about illusions. ”Nice trick you have there.” he gave her a smile and head closer, but kept a distance in case she would get scared of Zari. ”No need to worry about this little kitty. She wouldn't hurt a chicken. Well only if it's already been skinned for her. Such a diva, aren't you?” He chuckled while petting Zari to keep her calm around the new person. Cyrus didn't want to risk her to stress out even more.

Mercy sat there roaming through all the thoughts going through her head when she was approached by a male. She hadn't looked up when she heard his voice, instead kept her eyes upon the flames that were coming out of her fingers. ”Nice trick you have there.” he gave her a smile and head closer, but kept a distance in case she would get scared of Zari. ”No need to worry about this little kitty. She wouldn't hurt a chicken. Well only if it's already been skinned for her. Such a diva, aren't you?” He chuckled while petting Zari to keep her calm.

The female smirked a bit as she put the flames out within one swift motion of her hand and glanced up as she spoke, "Thanks and no worries here, I've spent my fair share around wild animals. But from what I can tell, this girl is far from wild." Mercy settled her eyes upon him before taking in his appearance. He was quite attractive, this must be the lion tamer Sage told her about.

She held her right hand out towards him as she introduced herself, "I'm Mercy," she stated.

"Thanks and no worries here, I've spent my fair share around wild animals. But from what I can tell, this girl is far from wild." the girl said and Cyrus chuckled. ”In that you're definitely right. But she's good at acting like one on stage”. As she introduced herself as Mercy, he shook her hand and smiled. ”Nice name. And nice to meet you. I'm Cyrus. And this is Zari.” Zari let out a low growl and stayed behind his back. ”Poor girl still scared from the accident before” he said while petting her to keep her calm.

He couldn't help but think that Mercy looked pretty young for someone having a skill of that level. Of course looks didn't told the whole truth. She could have been practised since a kid. ”I heard Sage mentioning you got the job. Excited about it?” Cyrus asked friendly while wondering if Sage had found anything out. He was hoping for good news. Otherwise he had to find some place for Zari to sleep. And the way she was acting now, he was worried she wouldn't settle down to the new tent. Maybe he should let her sleep with him?

She glanced over at Zari when she made a low growl and gave a soft smile before returning her attention over towards the male before her, he introduced himself as Cyrus. For some reason that name sounded vaguely familiar, as if she had known someone from her past with the same name.

Mercy suddenly froze. The memories came flooding back to her.

"Ah, so you must be Mercy Underwood. My brother has told me so much about you," Cyrus circled around Mercy in the chair he had her tied up in. "I'm not joining the coven. I already told Jacob that! I don't want to be a part of something so horrible...let me go," she stated.

At that moment Cyrus leaned in towards her, "No." Mercy looked straight into the male's eyes with a soft smirk and singed the ropes that her hands were bound by behind the chair. Once her arms were loose she singed the man's face and burned the ropes that bound her legs within a quick, swift motion. She was now on her feet.


Mercy had a couple tears roll down her cheeks when she was back to reality. She wiped the tears from her eyes and just stared in front of her, seeing Jacob standing just beyond one of the tents. The blonde stood to her feet and stepped just behind Cyrus and spoke towards Jacob. "I'm not going with you," she stated and just like that, the man disappeared.

Cyrus looked confused as Milena was acting like he weren't there. "Hey are you alright?" He asked but didn't get an answer from her. Worried he stepped closer to her and placed his hand on her shoulder. "Can you hear me?" Still no answer. He saw the tears falling down from her cheek. "Mercy?" He tried once more.

Just as sudden she had got lost in her own mind, she was back. Before Cyrus was able to ask anything she was stepped behind him and looked somewhere between the tents. Zari was now staring towards the same way. "I'm not going with you." "What? I wasn't asking you to come with you. Is everything alright?" Cyrus sounded worried. If that girl was mentally unstable it could get dangerous. Maybe he should inform Milena about this. He shook the thought out of his mind. No, she seemed to be a clever girl, and her fire skills had no doubt required a lot of training and focus. But slight doubt stayed in his mind as he decided to keep an eye on her - just in case.

He focused to the girl again. "Do you need water or something? I can take you to one of the artist tents if you need to rest."

Sage was right to be here instead of anyone else that was actually living still, and with Milena being immortal, nothing could happen to her either. "You're right.. someone else could of got hurt." with that, Milena wandered around the collapsed area of the tent, observing it closely so she could figure out a way that she could fix it by her own hands, and also making sure it wasn't going to happen again. "We'll place three tight knots to ensure that nothing comes loose. Something odd is happening here." no doubt it was Supernatural, Milena could sense it.

Hearing her words about that magician again, was starting to anger Milena a little. How dare this ghost come into their home, and try to hurt her family? "You're right.. he's probably doing it our of jealousy, and spite. He want's to torture you for the rest of your existence. We'll figure something out to get rid of him.. hopefully. But lets not let the others know. They might leave us if they know this Circus is haunt--" Milena cut off then, her head snapping to the exit of the tent.

In the distance was a loud, piercing scream which made Milena's skin shiver. "What the hell was that?" her eyes were almost wide with worry before she flashed out of the tent, and towards where the scream had been heard in the big top. Once there, a couple of people were in shock at what they were seeing. On the ground lay a body, but their lower jaw had ripped clean off with their dead eyes staring upwards. It wasn't a sight for the faint hearted.

Mercy suddenly glanced over to Cyrus, he clearly looked worried about her. She sighed and ran her fingers through her hair. "Uh, sorry. I um.... There is no point in lying to you, I'd have to tell someone eventually," she started. "The reason why I can produce fire from my fingers is because I'm a witch. I don't do any harm to anyone and I do like keeping people safe. But the man who gave me the powers, he's been trying to get me to join his coven for many years now and every now and then he appears to me, trying to make me join," she stopped for a moment as she looked down at the ground, allowing the male to take in what she had explained so far.

Just before she was about to continue, she heard a loud, piercing scream and without hesitation, she began running through the circus grounds towards the scream. Once she arrived to the scene, she couldn't believe what she had seen. Mercy glanced around at the small crowd, but focused more on Milena. "Um, does this happen often?" she questioned as she then glanced around the area, trying to see if she could find out who could have done this to the poor girl.

Something was definitely off about this place. She could sense it before she even arrived on the grounds. But as long as she been on the grounds, she has yet to have any kind of vision about anything that could have happened or could happen in the future. Come to think of it, she hasn't had any visions for the past couple of days, that was definitely a bit strange. But maybe there was just nothing all that important she needed to know...yet.

A scream had drew him out of his calculating mind-set, looking around though there was obviously nothing to see. Nothing of the haunting velvet patronizing voice that whispered to him. In any other instance he could have blamed himself as a suspect but he had been standing in this place the whole time and not moved a muscle.

He only had to walk to view the body with the scream emerging that close. Plus he was betting with a scream like that she was already dead. When he saw the body his nose and lips couldn't help but curl up in disgust. The killer had exceeded brutal with their work of the body. Yet part of him was fascinated by the idea of where the jaw was and how the freak did it. His eyes left the body, scanning the crowd that gathered, both looking out for pointed looks towards him ready to defend himself and seeking the killer.
"Um, does this happen often?" Dustin looked to the Mercy girl then the leader. One would certainly hope not but the sudden chill, the tent collapsing. Why not murder? Besides, technically his almost-death had taken place on these circus grounds as well.

”A which, eh? I thought all witches were---” his sentence was cut in the middle from a loud high scream. Zari, afraid of loud noises, jumped back hitting on Cyrus who fell ending up under her and roared loudly – assumably trying to scare the one making the sound. Then it was silent. For few seconds when they tried to figure out what was that noise. Cyrus saw Mercy and some others running towards where the sound had come from.

Meanwhile he was pushing Zari away from him. ”I know you're scared, but really don't fit on my lap, Zari.” He said grateful that he wasn't completely under her and she wasn't using her whole weight. The tent falling down was enough for the day, he preferred not to get crushed by a lion. When finally he was able to get Zari move, he stood up wiping away most of the dirt and took her leash again. However when he was about to head same way as everyone else, Zari was fighting against him. ”Hey, come on. It's okay, no one is going to hurt you.” he tried to assure her petting the lion. Trying again, Zari still kept her head and Cyrus sighed. It wasn't easy to drag over a 300 pounds of lion around. Eventually he just ended up tieing Zari to nearby fence. ”Stay there, okay? I'm coming right back.” Zari looked at him for a long time before laying down and meowed irritated.

Shaking his head Curys went to same place everyone else had already gathered. Getting closer he saw something he wasn't prepared of. The sight was.... Hideous. Cyrus swallowed. His usual cheeriness and joking was gone. A murder? In the circus? Had someone been trying to murder him just a moment ago when tent came down? It had to be coincident, right? Suddenly he run behind the tents nearby and threw up.

Sage followed Milena around the circus tent as she inspected the supports, "We'll place three tight knots to ensure that nothing comes loose. Something odd is happening here." She nodded her head making a mental knot of everything her friend said. "I was able to get the supports back in place but the knots could help this from happening again." She could tell that talking about the Magician made Mil uncomfortable, and worried her. "You're right.. he's probably doing it our of jealousy, and spite. He want's to torture you for the rest of your existence. We'll figure something out to get rid of him.. hopefully. But lets not let the others know. They might leave us if they know this Circus is haunt--" She jumped, being startled as she heard the scream in the distance that interrupted Mil.

Sage dropped her book and purse where she stood and bursted out of the tent in the direction of the scream. She arrived shortly after Cyrus, but there were so many people gathered around she couldn't see anything. She slowly wiggled her way through the crowd whispering, "Excuse me," and "Pardon me," Until she reached what everyone was looking at. The second Sage's eyes fell upon the body she screamed, bringing her hands up to cover her mouth as she stared in shock. Their jaw was completely torn off. She didn't know who did it but she'd bet money on the fact that it was one of the ghosts that has been haunting the Circus. The sight scared her, she couldn't bear to look at it. She turned her back to the body, burying her face in her hands.
