Description


Luise 'Feu' Poleq'u


"Is it hot in here, or is it just me?"

Name:
Luise Poleq'u

Stage Name:
Feu.

Age:
18.

Gender:
Female.

Role:
Performer; Fire Breather/Dancer.

Blood Type:
O Negative.

~~~

Eye Color:
Golden.

Hair Color:
Scarlet.

Dressing Style:
Normal: Feu prefers to dress with some class when not performing. She often wears crisp white blouses, the top few buttons undone, straight skirts, and a pair of not-too-tall black heels. Her hair is always tied up in a high tail with a ribbon, a safety precaution, one might call it, for hair and fire do not mix well. She also has a pair of plain black gloves she wears to hide her hands, though cannot wear them while she is performing because it hinders her.

Performance: Her costume is tight and rather revealing. A top, low cut and only covering down to the top of her ribs, is a thick, dark brown fabric, woven with red (Fake) jewels about the neckline. A skirt hangs loosely, looking like it threatens to fall, at the bottom of curved hips, cut short in the front but flows out in the back so that it sweeps the ground, made of the same fabric as the top and adorn with the same jewels around the waistline. A garter with the same stones is sometimes seen also. No shoes or gloves.

Weight:
105 lbs.

Height:
5'3"

~~~

Likes:
Warm Weather | Nighttime | Scary Stories | Stuffed Animals | Older Men (Though, not exclusively either) | Comic Books.

Dislikes:
Being Cold | Bad Attitudes | Dogs | Spiders | Meat/Meat Products | Large Quantities of Water.

Habits:
Flicking fire embers at unsuspecting people | Hiding her hands, the discoloration and scarring from past scorching embarrassing for her | Flirting with anything with legs. If a pretty woman comes along, she's all for it, but she primarily goes for people of the Male variety.

Crush:
N/A ATM.

Personality:
Flirtatious is the first word that comes to mind when thinking about Feu. She enjoys putting herself out there, not afraid to invade some personal space and get rather friendly with whomever she fancy's. Feu can be thought of as cocky, always thinking herself to be positively amazing and perfect in every aspect, but this can be balanced out with the fact that she holds everyone else with the same high regard. Pranks and jokes are her thing, other members often finding themselves with no eyebrows when they awake in the morning if they did something to displease her the night before. Even with her tricky nature, Feu is a bubbly person, very happy with her life thus far and plans to continue to enjoy it thoroughly. She enjoys ghost stories and anything that is even remotely scary, its just how she gets her thrills.

Feu has a certain mindset when it comes to her acts and performances. She believes that the fire chooses only those whom trust it and whom put full effort forth. With this mindset, she doesn't burn herself while using the flames, but will punish herself greatly if she believes that she has not put all her heart into using the flames.

~~~

Skills:
Fire Handling | Cooking | Seduction | First Aid.

Family:
Feu likes to think of all the members as her family, but truly she has no blood relation to any of them.

History:
Luise, no matter how hard she tries, cannot seem to recall how long she had been in the circus. It just seemed like... Always. No end, no beginning, just eternity. Not that she minded, really, Luise loved it. The thrill of seeing onlookers' eyes spark with the reflection of her flames was what made her blood pump through her veins. Fire that bent at her will, at a puff of breath; that was where she earned her name, 'Feu', meaning fire. Simple, very simple. But Luise liked it that way. It had a sort of eloquence to it that she adored, preferring it over her real name.

Though, what felt like a million years ago, Luise could recall not feeling this way once, hating her fire with, well, a fiery passion. Those were the times she had gotten the worst of her burns, the flames punishing her for her half-hardheartedness, the ugly reminders that showed with dominance and were displeasing to the eyes. The large slash on her stomach was faded now from age, though the coloring was still a bit off, darker than the rest, and the ones on her face were all but gone, but the ones she was most ashamed of were her hands. Both of them, forever scorched and disgusting, could make anyone's stomach turn just at a glance.

Luise could remember the exact day it happened, a grim lesson to learn. She could recall that it had been raining that day, a serious downpour so hard that the show had been canceled for the night, and the performers and workers alike had to huddle themselves inside, practicing routines and marking off checklists to pass the time. It was for a new bit she was trying out, something to add a bit more piazzas to the act, because, gosh, she loved piazzas. Taking a hot clump of embers from a fire pit, she threw them into the air like confetti, only to breath fire onto them and make them spark mid-flight, twinkling like a thousand tiny suns. That was the idea anyway, it worked in theory. But her heart hadn't been in it back then, and the flames felt that, so when she struck her hands into the fire, something that should not have burned her, she screamed and writhed in pain, her hands coming away almost black with char.

It was a lesson well learned, how ever long ago it might have been.

Ember was very happy~ Right when she woke up, she did her stretches and bounced out of her little room with her cat placed firmly on her head. "Come on, Simon~! The sun is shining~! It's time to play~! And dance around~!" The pale woman chimed to her little kitty, dancing around to find only three others awake. She rummaged around and grabbed herself vanilla cake with a big frosting rose on it~ Yum~

"Oh~ You guys are awake~ It is oh so very nice to see you so early in the morning~!" Ember chimed happily, dancing around as she ate her breakfast cake, the poor cat clinging for life on top of her head. She tackle hugged Lady, her being the closest person to her. "It is a very good morning, yes~? But where is everyone?" Ember asked, turning to where the sleeping quarters were. She set Simon and her cake down before taking a deep breath.

"Rise and shine~! It's morning time~!" She shouted loudly, being everyone's usual morning alarm clock. Ember giggled innocently as she looked at the three fellow members.


OOC: I figured it was a good idea to call you all to the RP XD

Luise slept like the dead that night. She had been so tired from her... Various affairs a few nights before that she slept through the bumping and jolting of the traveling caravan. Had it not been for the intense morning light piercing its way through the crack in her curtains and the loud voice of Ember screeching its way right into her eardrums, she probably would have slept the day away. With a loud groan and an odd, cat-like stretch, Luise pulled herself from her sweltering nest of a bed, made up of blankets and stuffed animals alike. She like it warm, never opening the door for long periods of time of her caravan or opening the curtains, for it would let out the heat. It took a long time for Luise to coax herself awake, finding the strength to don her blouse and skirt, let alone put on a pair of heels, but when she was dressed and presentable, her hair tied and gloves secured, she exited her hotbox and into the morning sunlight.

The fire breather glanced around, a tad impressed that the workmen had managed to get all the tents up in such a short amount of time, though they had done it so many times before. The bright colors of the tents never ceased to please her, the colors kind to the eyes and easily drawing attention. With one final yawn, she marched her way (Which was quite difficult on the dirt with her heels) to the one of the larger tent, where most of the performers had already started at their breakfasts.

Luise slipped past Ember unnoticed as the girl launched herself at The Little Lady, only to huff a breath at her precious 'Breakfast Cake', singeing the very top of it with a quick burst of flames. Really, when would that girl know that a fine woman like Luise need extra sleep the keep up her appearances? Chucking to herself, Luise sat down at the table, pretending she had done nothing wrong, and picking at a piece of fruit with a small smirk.




Image


Jem hadn't slept a wink that night. They had arrived at destination FAR too early, leaving Jem and the other workmen to set up the tents and attractions at the unholy hours of two til seven in the morning, while the performers got to sleep on in their quarters like nothing had ever happened. He felt like he was going to pass out from exhaustion. Not that he was being bitter or anything towards them, he truly liked his job, but he somehow felt this to be a tad unfair. However, he would never say that to any of their faces, for that would be far too cruel.

Dark circles under his eyes prominent, Jem slouched his way to one of the largest of the tents, the one that had caused him the most pain to help put up, for it kept collapsing for some odd reason. Finally, it had stood, and stayed, and Jem felt very accomplished in his acts, no matter how drop-dead tired he was. But now most of the performers were awake inside, chatting cheerily over breakfast. Not wanting to bother them, Jem tried to sneak his way past them to snag something off the table before he planned to collapse into his chambers and sleep most of the day away.

The cool water of the lake licked teasingly at Eryn's toes. She wasn't quite sitting in the water, but the black shorts and oversized t-shirt she wore, her pajamas, were soaked. Though the caravan had been beside the water for several hours, Eryn hadn't mustered the energy to get out of bed until only a half an hour earlier. It's not as if she'd been asleep: most of her nights were spent awake. There was something about being in a moving vehicle that kept her up. She also liked to listen to the circus being set up. The noise of the workers setting up tents and attractions was always nice to listen to, almost relaxing in a way. It was almost as relaxing as the gentle push and pull of the lake against her feet.

If I had a boat, I'd sail all the way to the other side, she thought, tucking a strand of blonde hair behind her ear.

Stretching her long legs out into the water, Eryn let out a sigh and stood up. She listened for the faint bellow of Ember, her daily "wake up call." The ground was still cold beneath her feet, not yet warm from the sun. Eryn liked it that way. She made her way towards a large tent where her co-workers seemed to be gathering. She took her seat at the large table, several seats away from everyone else.

Eryn's hair had a messy look to it, still in a now rugged looking braid from the night before. Her bangs, as well as another small chunk of hair, fell into her eyes, but she did nothing to move it out of the way. It covered her eyes, which meant the dark bags went virtually unnoticed, which was perfectly fine for her. The fact that shes was still in wet pajamas was only a distant thought, hidden by sleepiness. She took a bite out of an apple and leaned back in her chair, folding wet feet underneath a wet bottom. It was going to be a long day.

Embers gasped in complete horror as her cake was set on fire... Her cake! She tried to hit it out with the gloves on her hand, but only ended up smashing her cake. Embers looked down at the smashed stuff in complete and utter dismay. "My... My cake..." She said softly, looking up at Luise, eyes tear rimmed. "Why would you do that?" Embers asked, not taking into account that it was her who had technically smashed it. But that was a natural instinct, snuff out the fire when it starts.

In an act of sorry, Embers ran to someone she hadn't realized was trying to be sneaky. She clung to Jem and started telling him about how mean Luise was for killing her cake. She didn't like fire cake... It burnt her mouth when she tried to eat it... And now she was cake-less... And technically breakfast-less.

Luise was rather shocked at Ember's reaction to her little trick, pausing her picking, mouth agape, to watch in utter dismay as she proceeded to smash her precious breakfast cake to mush. Luise had only crisped the top, burnt the icing a tad, really, and had not expected the cat-loving girl to be thrown into a tizzy because of it. She suddenly felt horrid for her trick, jumping up to her feet from where she sat to try to explain herself, "Ember, seriously! I wasn't trying to-" only stopping as dear old Ember ran straight and true to the bane of Luise's very existence.

She scowled at Jem, but forced it down as she slowly approached, trying to to coax Ember away from him so that Luise herself needn't be too close, "Come on, Ember, it was only a joke... You're cake is still edible..."



Image



Jem dropped the apple he had grabbed from the table as something ran directly into him, clinging to his arm. Frowing at the wasted apple, he gave a sigh before taking in the rest of the issue. He blinked down at Ember, who clung to his arm, starting off to say a signiture, "What'cha need, S-" He was cut off as the silver-haired girl started quickly off into a tangent about how horrid Luise was for ruining her breakfast of sweets. Jem couldn't say he disagreed, liking sweets quite a lot himself, looking up only a brief second from the clinging girl to the fiery one, whom stood a few feet away and looked like she regretted a lifetime. Rightfully so, Jem thought to himself, seeing how distraught Ember was to have her morning ruined.

He patted Ember's head softly, throwing a disapproving look at Luise before looking back with a kinder one, "Hm... You're cake, huh?" He started slowly, "How 'bout we go see if there's any extra in the caravan, yeah? I think there was some in the back..." He suggested in a quiet tone, though he wasn't sure the distraught girl was even listening to him.

Ember looked at Luise and then at Jem. She pouted at the girl. "You scared me! Now what am I supposed to give Simon? He's hungry too..." She pouted, taking a few more minutes to pout before smiling up at Jem. "It's okay Lu-Lu~ Jemie is gunna take me to get more~" Ember chimed, all happy again once she was told she could get more cake. She hugged Jem happily, not even noticing why Luise wasn't close. She didn't like it when people hated others... Especially if they were supposed to be friends.

Ember bounced over to Luise and took her hands in her own. "We can all go get cake together~!" She said, very happy at the moment. Ember held one of Luise's hands and the other grabbed Jem's, lifting them both into the air. "Off to the cakes~!" She cried out happily. She was getting cake~ So she was happy~ Granted, Ember was a very easy girl to please and cheer up if need be.

Lady Dravvis


Lady blinked her facial expression never changing from its neutral gaze. She did say hello of course she said hello and good morning and she even had a little twinkle of amusement in her eye when Norma practically pranced over. Lady would say she was a decent judge of character and that she may have noticed Norma taking a slightly warmer array of feelings toward her brother. Not that she would mention much. While Jean ravenously ate he spoke to Norma excitedly about the routine ideas he had. He was excited and that meant his mind was completely out of it and that meant that when Ember and Luise had there little fire scandal Lady was one of the only ones left sitting there who actually heard the commotion over the general buzz of talking.

Lady considered helping really she did but she wasn't sure who to help dead tired looking Jem, More then a little upset Ember or the confused Luise. But things seemed to resolve themselves thanks to Jem... Honestly they all relied on him too much. Lady stood picking her head up with her. "Miss Ember, please drag Mr.Jeremy back here after you have your cake... He is in need of some sleep and vitamins most certainly some food also... Oh and Miss Luise she looks a tad pale also..." Lady stopped and eyed Ember before having a faintest of smiles appear. "You look fine though Miss Ember and it looks like you rounded everyone up so thank you. Can't have anyone missing can we." Lady then set her head back on her neck where it belonged before heading toward the crate that held her supplies. She wanted to check on a few people before they ran about getting themselves into trouble and trying to perform with who knows a flu or something worse!

Jean Dravvis


Jean was happier the more he ate and he was eating allot. He'd piled a plate high with food and was hungrily eating as his sister stared vacantly. She rarely ate, rarely needed it actually and sometimes he swore she simply forgot to do it. He was going to comment on it when Norma came over and he got caught up in going through the courteous. "Good morning! How are you? Were performing today its gonna be great! What act are you doing? I thought of a new one for mine! I wonder what everyone else is doing." And all this was said all the while he kept eating.

Norma's smile got bigger when Jean started talking to her with such excitement about tonight's performance. Seeing him so happy motivated her to work very hard on her act in order to bring the audience the same joy she just witnessed.
"It's going to be great, right?" Norma responded with the same excitement.

During the conversation, Norma would be distracter from time to time by the situation between Ember and Luise. She was worried to see the circus' cheerful walking alarm being so sad. However, everything resolved quickly, so Norma continued her conversation in peace.

"We've all been working hard on our acts! It's going to be amazing! I know it! Then we'll be watching the stars! You know... the whole staff..."

Norma noticed there was some vanilla cream on her long sleeve. In her attempt to hide it she managed to push her own plate on the floor, breaking it. At least she was almost finished with the breakfast.

Norma started collecting the pieces of plate.
"This is awful, horrible, despicable! How? Why?" She was thinking.

Luise bowed her head to Ember, terribly sorry that Ember no long had any cake to feed her cat. (Though, Luise was fairly sure Simon could die from that, she didn't want to bring that up just yet.) However, the silver-haired girl surprised her, bouncing back to her usual happy-go-lucky and agreeing to forgive Luise. The Fire Breather smiled, but that didn't last long, seeing how chummy Ember was getting Jem. Making a mental note to warn Ember about how fowl he was later, Luise was ready to turn back to her own breakfast, but Ember had grabbed her hand, dragging her over to where both her and the devil spawn stood.

"We can all get cake together~!" Ember proclaimed happily, locking her hands tightly with both Jem and Luise, lifting them high above Luise's head, but Jem's only seemed to have to bend a fraction. "Off to get cake~!"

"Oh?" Luise started tensely, eyeing Jem, whom seemed to go all goo-goo eyes on Lady as soon as she spoke up, with loathing, ready to try to wiggle her way out of the situation, "Need I come along? It seems you are in..." She seemed to hiss the last two words, a small lick of flames coming out between her teeth, "Good hands..."



Image



Jem wrinkled his nose at the notion of having Luise accompany them. It was clear that Ember was trying to help, linking the three's hands together into a chain, ready for the short adventure to secure more cake for Simon, however strange that sounded, but it was clear neither Jem nor Luise planned on being anywhere close to friends any time soon. But, if he had to, to try not to upset dear Miss Ember, he would endure it for now and go back to viciously ignoring the, excuse his inner language, resident whore.

He was ready to drag both of them off right then in the search for cake, until Lady spoke up, concerning herself with their well-being. The thought of her concerning herself with him, if only for a brief instance, made him smile bashfully to himself, but he covered it quickly with a crisp nod, "Thank you for your concern, Miss Dravvis." Then, coming back to her senses after a long moment, he leaned down to Ember, "Come along, you have to practice for tonight, right? Let's go get your cake quickly."

Lady Dravvis


Lady nodded to Jem and Luise before turning around her back turned to the scene when she heard Norma drop something. "Careful Miss Norma please don't cut yourself." She moved the lid to the crate and lifted herself up to reach down inside. Being a living doll meant she was not tall in anyway and it simply proved annoying most of the time. But mostly because it was pain in her ribs to have to hang over the edge of a wooden crate to get something that always winded up at the bottom. Not to mention it exposed her to Jean who had once picked up her legs and made her fall inside as a prank... Though to be fair she'd been the one to start that insanity by dying his hair pink while he slept. After all Lady or not that did not mean she had no sense of humor. Besides he'd deserved it for scarring her half to death after doing an idiotic high jump. He wasn't an acrobat he was a magician. Finally managing to grab the box of supplies she lifted herself out and moved the crate cover back in place before walking over to Ferela. "Hello Miss Ferela... Do you mind if I sit an look through my supplies... I believe that it would be best if Jean were to help Miss Norma..." Lady was trying to hint that she believe Norma liked her brother but due to the fact she had a hard time being expressive it probably seemed just weird. "Oh... And by the way... How are you feeling lately?"

Jean Dravvis


Jean blinked in surprise when Norma dropped her plate. "Oh hey don't worry I'll help." Immediately Jean dropped down and started to pick up pieces of the plate. He giggled and whispered to Norma "Yeah if you do cut yourself Lady will have a worry attack... I think she thinks were too clumsy sometimes..." Jean grinned thinking his own comment rather amusing. As he scooped up more pieces. "For the record I see you practicing allot and I always wanna come in and try but I feel like I would probably injure myself... Your pretty amazing at what you do and I have a feeling that with how hard you've been working your gonna rake in the biggest crowd. Just don't have any plates in your act and you should be fine right?" Jean chuckled at the idea of poor Norma dropping plates all over she could probably make it look elegant if she tried but... Not sure the circus would be happy replacing them.

Ferela watched as Norma started to pick up bits of a plate then saw Lady wobble over the edge of a crate then walk her way she smirked a little she had always liked Lady as she always seemed to care about everyone as the small girl reached the table she said "Hello Miss Ferela... Do you mind if I sit an look through my supplies... I believe that it would be best if Jean were to help Miss Norma..." Ferela nodded at her and heard her say"Oh... And by the way... How are you feeling lately?" Ferela looked at her and said "Oh...I've been alright a little lonely I guess and yes I think you are right in the matter of Jean helping Norma.." she smirked as she watched the two cleaning up plate pieces and said "And how are you lately Lady?"as she set her food down as to be polite to her company.

Ember was very confused as Lady technically told her that the two were sick, but that thought was quickly killed off by what Luise stated. "Oh! Please, please, please come! It will be so much fun with the both of you!" She cried out. She nodded at Jem's statement about the practicing and quickly pulled them both away. She saw no harm it it, being quite oblivious to their obvious hate for one another.

Ember happily smiled at both of them as she made them go one a massive search for her cake. It wasn't very hard since she practically demanded sweets all the time. That was he life force and she was shocked that Lady hasn't made her try and eat otherwise. Maybe she didn't notice or something. So once Ember found her cake, she made sure to give some to both Jem and Luise. "There~! No one can be grumpy with this~" She chimed happily, looking at both of them with the purest of innocence. "Oh... Simon~! Here kitty kitty~! Are you hungry~!" She called out, waiting a few moments until the cute little cat came trotting to her side.

Ember took a glob of her frosting and gave it to the cat to eat. She still gave him normal cat food despite what others believed... But that always came later in the day when she was going to retire for bed.

(( IM SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONG!!! My room sorta had a pipe explode under it and flood a spot...))

Lady Dravvis


Lady was still chatting silently with Ferela when the news of... Dare she say it a cut reached her ears. "Jean... I thought you were helping Norma with that." She saw her brother jump a little and hide behind Ezra... Of course he would. With an angry huff Lady pulled out several things from her small box. "Jean... Sit next to Miss Ferela and keep her company while I fix Norma's hands..." Lady watched with ruby eyes as he listened. "Ferela... Keeps an eye on him... He's trouble." Lady gently took Norma's hands and looked at each cut with meticulous worry. "Norma... What am I to do with you... You and Jean will kill me with worry..." A sad look filled Lady's eyes at the thought of anyone injured but there was not time. Taking a pair of tweezers Lady picked out each piece of remaining glass and set it in a pile, then she cleaned the wounds once with a wet towel the cook brought over and started to apply salve. "This salve will disinfect it." Then finally Lady wrapped up the cuts in a bandage making it tight. "Before your performance tonight you will remove those bandages apply this," she pulled out a different salve "It has pain numbing properties your performance should be fine BUT... I would prefer if someone volunteered to keep an eye on her during her performance before and after to insure she remembers to take all proper protocols... AM I CLEAR!" Lady's eyes narrowed into a deadly glare she only gave those for peoples own good... When they NEEDED to take better care of themselves or she would step in and fix the problem herself. "So... Norma... After you get a volunteer you will come tell me... I can't have you not taking care of those cuts... Just the idea of an infection." A panic look crossed Lady's face as she gently touched the bandages now covering the cuts, before it returned to it's neutral expression. "Anyway... You find a volunteer miss!"

Jean Dravvis


Jean was a little shocked with Ezra's appearance... Then again he always was. Smiling at the slightly older boy Jean allowed him to help and allowed himself to get distracted hence why Norma probably ended up with so many cuts. But before he could say anything Lady's demonically sharp ears caught in and she snapped going full: 'Jean sit down what am I going to do with you someones injured now.' mode. Jean huffed and obeyed sitting across from Ferela. "Why is it always me... I've been good... Lately." He huffed and puffed up his cheeks watching Lady work from here. She was fast and skilled and even though she often complained about worry being her death she showed a fondness for fixing people up... Something no one dared even try take away lest they end up on the end of those deathly ruby eyes and sharp snake tongue... She was sweet it was true but she was also dangerous.

When Lady finished with Norma Jean knew her attention would turn on him luckily he had a distraction. "EZRA!" Throwing himself on the thinner man Jean clung to him, "I completely forgot to say hello," Luckily it worked upon seeing Ezra Lady calmed down immediately and folded her arms. "Ezra, darling big brother please tell our air head of a sibling that he is to be more careful." DANG IT! She was gonna turn Ezra on it too the big sibling who was suppose to help him out of Lady's worry wart scolding not aid in it. "Lady! Come at least hug the man before you order such things." Jean prayed... And they were answered Lady calmed a little and moved over allowing her to be squished between the two older boys. She may have even hugged back... A little. Not that she'd admit it. When she was finally released she turned her attention elsewhere calling over Jeremy and Luise to get a check up sense they'd come back from getting cake with the bubbly Ember. Jean smiled, "One bullet dodged eh Ezra... She'd have come after you next you know darling sister do us both she's dangerous..."

Luise took the piece of cake offered, smiling and taking a small bite in gratitude to Ember, but as soon as the silver-haired girl turned away, the fire-breather promptly dumped the cake over her shoulder and spit out the rest. She loathed sweets, they absolutely ruined her figure, something that was quite important to her and her occupation, and truthfully they didn't taste all that good. Anyone who could find artificial sugar anything but repulsive was strange to her, she couldn't fathom how Ember or Jem could joy such things. But, of course, she didn't want to upset the girl further and just went along with it.

After Ember finished feeding the cat its 'breakfast' (And, most likely, it inevitable death.), Luise wrapped an arm around the taller girl's shoulder with some difficulty, and started to pull her away from Jem and the rest, waving off Lady's concern, "So, Ember, dear, I was wondering if you could help me out with something?" Luise swirled her finger around in the air, a thin trail of flames following after it, "I know it's a bit rude to ask, but could you help me with my stretches? I've been trying to become more flexible... For the act, of course." She added the last part in a bit too quickly.

Jem, whom was handed the slice of cake and was swiftly cut away from any conversation he might have with Ember by the circus whore, was left a tad secluded. He took his cake, wrinkling his nose as Luise when he heard her flexibility comment (Maybe he should mention it to Zeke, just to harass her a bit?), before he was back at the tables, poking at the cake slice sleepily. His tiredness, now that he was no long distracted by the cake-hunt, was overwhelming, and he found himself slowly falling forward before jolting himself awake again at the last second. However, on the last time 'round, he just couldn't keep his eyes open, his head slamming forward onto the table with a hefty force, missing the cake by a hair's breath. That woke him up, if anything.

Jem groaned loudly in pain, not finding the effort to bother to pick up his head and deciding it was a great place for a nap.

"What are you talking about, Ferela?" Norma laughed nervously, forcing a smile. "It's nothing about embarrassment! You'll just be more in touch with my health and will remind me about the painkillers in case I forget."

Norma took a lock of Ferela's hair and started braiding it.

"You'll make everyone calmer if you stick around me a little more than usual." Her smile wasnt forced any more. "I'd do the same for you in case you get injured."

Again, Norma managed to get out of the self pity or self conscious phase - probably for the second or third time in the last few minutes. Her biggest motivation was a great performance - the main reason she got over her phases. Norma, like everyone else, loved performing. If you worsen the situation with something you're bad at, you can also make things better with something you're good at - this would go for everyone, this is all that mattered.

Ferela watched Norma and was happy she didn't seem too be mad at her she let out a small breathe as Norma started braiding a lock of her hair"You'll make everyone calmer if you stick around me a little more than usual." Ferela saw her smile lighten become easier as she said"I'd do the same for you in case you get injured." Ferela looked at Norma and smiled as she said "Ok and thanks again I am happy to know that!" She watched the girl braid her bit of hair "You are quite good at braiding Norma..." she said absently as the thought popped in her head she felt an urge to hug the girl but stayed still and just watched the others, while doing this she watched Luise talking to Ember as she walked her away then saw Jem fall asleep hitting the table audibly and he lay there she assumed he was asleep 'Im glad that the workers do what they do..but it is sad how little sleep they seem to get..' she thought to herself.

Ember was content at his point. And she was pleased to hear Luise's request after she had finished her breakfast cake. She gave the girl a beaming smile and took both hands into her own. "I would love to help you~! I'm sure you'll be all stretchy and perfect for the show in no time!!! Ember chimed, bouncing around slightly in pure happiness.

Ember, never having let go of the poor girl's hands, pulled her down onto the ground. "We can start here~ And then everyone will know how good you're going~" She chimed, sitting like a baby would who just fell down on their butt. "Lets try this one to see where you're at. Ember offered as she did the splits easily. She more or less laid down on the ground while doing so and rolled upwards, pointing out her toes.

She came back to normal and smile at the girl before her. "Alright~ Your turn~" Embers had no clue how flexible the girl before her was, and things like this had come easily to her. She would help of course once she realized, bu this was more of a test to see how much help was indeed needed. "The burn means it's working~"

Luise, having paled slightly after being dragged to the floor along with the bouncy acrobat, watched in utter horror as Ember did her splits and (To Luise's pang of pain in her inner thighs just by watching) her rolling forward in a hamstring shredding, groin aching fashion. But, the fire breather was a dancer after all, so the split was manageable to say the least (If only just barely!), but there was no way in this lifetime that Luise could do whatever Ember wanted to call that little trick.

Luise fixed her legs into a middle split, but moved no further than that, the steps thereafter an unfeasible task, "Hm..." Her voice was tense with strain to keep position, her discipline for the last while not really been up to par in the training/stretches department, but kept a level and calm demeanor, "I don't think I can quite do that yet, Dear... Do you have anything more basic? Just a bit?" Luise let out a slow breath, adjusting her legs again because they had started to slip from their position, a small burst of flames escaping from her lips but dissipating as quickly as they came.

Jem, in his half-asleep state, scrunched his eyes closed as footsteps sounded closer, approaching his place at the table, mumbling quietly, "What'cha need, S-" Though, he never finished, shutting himself up instantly as the dear Miss Lady started to scold him greatly for his carelessness and over-work. He couldn't retort to her, he really couldn't, since he knew that getting little sleep and eating even less was just apart of the job description. All the workmen had days where they couldn't walk straight. Though, Lady had told Jem time and time again, it always seemed to turn out this way. Jem accepted the scolding with a silent nod, knowing full well he deserved it, ready to leave it at that (Never one to argue, but especially not with Lady.) and continue snoozing halfheartedly at the table. However, Jem's face flooded with heat, his eyes popping open quickly, as small hands pulled him up from his sleep-ready position, inspecting his head for injury.

He could see her lips moving, but Lady's words were falling on deaf ears, Jem fighting his own internal 'Fight or Flight' alarm that was screaming 'FLIGHT FLIGHT FLIGHT'. Lady was standing far too close, and he could just feel Jean's eyes burning holes into the back of his head. That is, until he finally tuned the sound back in, letting it match up with moving lips and only catching small tid-bits of her lecture, leading up into the last, "I. Will. So. No. Mercy." Now Jem knew he was in some deep.... You know, but at least he caught the gist of what she had been saying.

"Ah... I-I can just go back myself. No need to be a bother, you guys have a show tonight!" He stammered stupidly, rising from his chair a bit too quickly for his own good, the world spinning and darkening at a dizzying pace, making him stagger.

Ember watched as the girl before her worked on the move. Okay... Something simpler. "Lets try touching out toes then~" She chimed, spreading her legs into a V shape and bending to one side. She grabbed the bottom of her foot with both hands perfectly clasped around it and stayed there.

"Alright~ You try~ This isn't too hard~ Try going as faaaaaaaaar as you can. Try and think of reaching for something you really wants~ That is what I do~ Ember stated as her kitty, Simon, came trotting over to her. He meowed cutely before hopping up onto her back. "Simon~ Do wants to do stretches too~?" she asked, the cat, giggling lightly.

Ember traveled her hands to the other side of per body, to the other leg and repeated the stretch. "Don't give up~ The pain means that it's working~" She encouraged the other. Ember had no idea that she was currently being creeped on by Ztateeka. And quite frankly, she never would. Too innocent~

"Poor Jeremy..." Norma thought. "He sure works a lot. I hope he doesn't get worse. Lady now takes care of him. We sure worry her a lot with our conditions, but that's what being a medic like."

Norma's sight was shot at Ferela when she mentioned that 'he kinda liked her'.
"Wha-" Norma almost exploded, but quickly stopped herself of saying something stupid or revealing.
"Who is that 'he' you're talking about, Ela?" Norma tried her best to look and act as casual as possible, knowing that Ferela didn't specifically mention the name.
"How can you tell that this particular person might like me? Have you noticed something really odd about Jean's beha..." So much for being casual, as Norma quickly clogged her mouth with both of her hands.

"L-look! Ember and Luise are stretching!" Norma yelled nervously, pointing at them. "Let's keep them company!"

The girl took Ferela's arm and started dragging her along.
"Hey, girls!" Norma greeted the stretchers, as her voice got a little high pitched.

Ferala saw Norma's reaction and was about to answer when she was pulled over toward the others she looked at Norma and said "So you do know who I was talking about then..yes I did notice.."she looked at the other girls and said "Yes hello you two good morning..."her voice cracked a little as she almost fell being pulled forward by Norma she put her heels into the ground haulting their movement she looked at Norma again and said "I won't say anything just stop pulling me please.."

Was she really THAT easy to be read? At this rate she started wondering how come Jean himself didn't notice? Maybe he did? Maybe everyone did?

Norma let Ferela go, as she wished. She had to accept the fact that Ela knew. She wouldn't deny though, Norma was glad that Ferela was willing to keep a secret.

Not knowing how to react any more, Norma just decided to participate in the stretching. She started bending backwards and touched the ground with her healthy arm, thus making a bridge position. So far so good, until her wide top started obeying gravity. Norma held it, preventing her bra exposure just in time. She should have thought of that, she should have at least put on more convenient clothes for stretching! Or not participating in the stretching at that moment.

"I'll just keep company..." The girl quickly got up. "You're doing great!" She showed thumbs up with both of her hands.

"I'll be a flying squirrel!" Norma responded. "I'm not giving away anything else. What are you guys planning for your acts tonight?" She asked the three girls around her.

(Sorry for the one liner... I hope someone responds soon...)

Ember was pleased to have other people stretch with her and the firedancer. Getting bored with easy stretches, Ember placed one leg down onto the ground as she lifted the other up until her legs practically made the letter "L". She giggled as she decided to make other shapes and letters with her body. Like an "O" came next as she rested on her stomach, took her feet behind her and decided to try and roll. When she actually successfully did it, she rubbed her face. "Meh... That felt weird." She commented before giggling again.

When asked what she was planning, Ember bounced up. "Oh! I know! I get really pretty rings~ One is on fire. Another is really icy~ One is swinging likes if it were windy and the other is all roughs and stuff! It's like the four elements!"
