History:
Alice and Roland Darkwood are twins. Although Alice is somewhat of a happy-go-lucky type of person, her brother, Roland, is always quiet, and much of a downer. They both love each other very much, and are absolutely inseparable. Because of them always being together, they shared a strong connection as brother and sister.
One day, Alice and Roland decided to go explore their parents' laboratory. Looking around, they both stepped into a large round room, unknown to them as the mutation project that their parents were working on together. While the twins were in one room, a yellow tabby and a white cat were in the other room. As soon as their parents hit this switch, their genes fused together, thus having mutated their children and the cats.
Wen Alice and Roland stepped out, they quickly ran from the sight of their parents, seeing what had happened to them. Alice ran and decided to join the circus while Roland still remains in hiding.

|Alice "Kitten" Darkwood|


Alice woke up with a kitten-like yawn from the top of a tree branch. She looked down curiously and looked up at the sky. 'Nya~, what a nice day it is today!' Leaping down gracefully, she landed on her hands and feet with cat-like reflexes. Her stomach rumbled loudly, as she thought to herself, 'Food...'

She walked calmly and silently to where everyone else was having breakfast and looked around. Smiling to herself, she realized how fun and interesting everyone looked. Alice turned and kept looking for the ringmaster, Brink. 'Where is he?' Soon enough, she found him and sat on the ground near him. "Good morning Brink! It's such a lovely day today, right?" Alice laid on the ground and started stretching, embracing her mutated cat-human self. 'Today is going to be an amazing day!'

Moshe purred happily as he got scratched. "I hope so.." He'd murmur before turning to stalk off to the breakfast caravan. "Hope they have steak cooked." He'd mutter softly to himself, his fluffy black tail twitching slightly. As the wind picked up he sniffed a familiar presence. Running into a straight jog, he'd look behind him making sure that Alynna couldn't see him before he transformed into his small tiger form. Giving a playful roar, he'd go and nuzzle Brink playfully before giving Alice a playful swat. If he could he'd hop up in her lap and give her a few playful licks before hoping up to jump on Brink's shoulder, plopping himself down, and stretching across Brinks shoulders, a purr rumbling deep from his throat.

He closed his eyes and would just lay there, his tail twitching casually. Seems tonight would be fun.

Image


Opening her eyes she saw that Moshe had ran off, but Mosh was with the group of boys. Shaking her head, she'd run out of the lake, grabbing her cloak, she'd wrap it around her body. "Julius!" She'd scream, running her feet bare with only her cloak wrapped around her. "Have you seen Moshe? I think... he ran off or something." Her green eyes were wide and full of concern, she loved that kitten to death. It was the only thing she considered family. She'd take a few deep breaths, she wouldn't be able to focus tonight without her kitten. Her aqua hair dripped around her, framing her face, accenting her cheeks, and showing the subtle differences between her eyes and hair colour. "Oh... Brink gave us the ok...for tonight." She'd add on before she forgot. She'd bite her lip, her eyes still scanning for the little black kitten. She wasn't embarrassed with being only in her cloak, that only covered her top, and barley covered her thighs. She knew Julius wouldn't be interested in her like that.

"Have you seen him?" She'd ask her voice full of urgency. "I know we gotta preform soon, but... without that kitten... I can't."

Alynna narrowed her eyes at Derrick, but refused to engage in a battle of wits with him. She was the furthest thing from a whore. "See how you feel should all your snakes disappear." She'd say coolly, before turning on her heel and walking off. She knew Derrick had a crush on Julius, but she wasn't that harsh to say anything. Wonder if Julius knows... The thought passed through her head, wondering if Julius even went that way. She'd give a wave to Julius, "Later Leo..." she called out, because if it wasn't him, she'd probably act cold hearted and get in a shouting contest with Derrick. She'd reach the lake and quickly get dressed in her costume for the night. Mosh was the one who picked it out for her, and she did like how it looked on her. It complimented her curves nicely, and didn't reveal too much, but just enough to keep the men in the crowd attentive to her. Wrapping the damp cloak around her neck, she'd walk off to go to the Big Top.
Walking in the breakfast caravan, she made a detour to grab some more fruit for later, during practice.
In her anger, she didn't realize that she bumped shoulders with Brink. "Oh! Brink! I'm so sorry!" She'd squeak out as the cloak (that was loosly tied anyway) slipped from around her neck and onto the ground. Seems that the nudge gave the cloak the tug it needed to fall off. The tiger around his shoulders would give out a loud growl reminding Alynna there was an animal around Brink's shoulders. She'd blush slightly, she hated revealing her outfits before the show... it was just a bit embarrassing.

"Still... so super sorry..." She'd give a polite wave to Alice and motioned to her outfit
"What do you think? Good for tonight's show?" She'd ask, happy that this outfit went well with her hair color, seems she always wore black and silver because that was all that she thought went with it.

A soft moan escaped Stella's lips as her eyes adjusted to the dimly lit room. Waking up had always been a dread for the teenager, especially when she barely received any, like last night. She had had worse nights where she gotten none at all, and was barely able to stay awake while preforming. Gladly, she knew today wasn't one of those day. The thought of preforming caused Stella to jolt from her bed. Had the show already started? She was unaware of the time, and this made her skittish. Quickly throwing her normal attire on,-a tank top and a pair of leggings-she groped about for her hairbrush. The small, worn out brush glided through the upper half of her hair, but then refused to move through her knots. The bristles caught between the dead ends of white, tangled hair. Sighing, she took the ponytail on her wrist and wrapped it around her hair twice, creating a messy high ponytail. She'd deal with her hair right before the show.

By the time Stell had exited her sleeping area, she had been up for only a few minutes. The grogginess of sleeping had completely subsided, and her body was now alert. Her stomach seemed to be more alert than any part of her, considering its extremely loud and unnecessary grumbling. Placing her bony fingers on her abdomen, she made her way to the kitchen. Scents of breakfast wafted through the air, causing her mouth to water. Finally, when Stella had reached the caravan, she entered with a hop to her step. To the others, this was normal. From her third day here, Stella had always been so happy and upbeat, even though she felt like she was always dying. Over the years the dying feeling had diminished, and she was thankful.

As she neared the others already in there, she smiled. The company of others always made her happy. She would eventually greet them, but not before she got her food. Grabbing a plate, Stella piled on eggs and a few pieces of bacon, never forgetting about her daily pear. Then, when she had gotten all her needed items, she seated herself. Once she scanned the faces and saw who was in the room, her smile grew. "Hey guys," she greeted. It seemed as if others were having their own conversations, and Stella didn't mind not being talked to. As long as she said hello to everyone and wasn't alone, she was a-okay.

Brink Orpheus

Brink was eating when suddenly Alice plopped next to him and stretched. He blinked. "Umm... Alice?" He raised his eye brow un-sure what to do with her. Suddenly can go eat another purring fuzzy creature showed up this time claiming his shoulder. Brink smiled gently for once and pet the small fur ball on his shoulder. What could he say... Brink had always had a soft spot for anything small and cute... It was a horrible weakness.

Brink blinked when Alynna ran into him and dropped her cloak. "Here." He picked up the cloak and gave it to her silently. "Yes your outfit suit's you quite well for your show." Brink's voice did not hold much emotion then again it never did. Or not around people he wasn't yet accustom to. Picking up the feline off of his shoulder Brink nuzzled and pet it holding it in his arms tightly hiding his gleeful smile.

~ . ~

Nixie Blue

Nixie had run out of the tent and was now heading toward the bird caravan. The birds did indeed have there own caravan as they had birds of all kind. Many of which were attracted to her, hence why she was one of the few people who actually cleaned there cages and let them out for there flight. Nixie jogged over to the caravan and pulled off the caravan's movable wall revealing all the cages there doors were open so the bird's could fly out. Nixie pulled open the first cage door most of the birds flew out but a few of them jumped onto her shoulder and head and cooed before calming down.

|Alice "Kitten" Darkwood|


Alice stood up from her spot and looked away, embarrassed of her behavior. "I'm sorry! I'm just embracing my catness..." She looked over at Alynna and waved happily. "Risque, that looks like a really cute outfit there!" She couldn't help but feel so happy and energized. "Hey Mosh!" Alice said, looking at the furry animal. "Let's play today! I wanna have fun!"

Alice starting rolling onto her back and began to paw at the cuter feline. 'He's so cute!'

Hearing Synthia's proposal she'd grin, of course she'd love to do it! That is would Brink let her...? "Syn, sure! I'd love to be a part of your act" She'd pause and chuckle, "They don't call me Risque for nothin do they?" Thinking back on getting the 'boss's' permission she'd look down at Brink and add on, "Unless Brink would have a problem with us preforming together." She'd giggle and examine the girl fully. Certainly she was shy, but she didn't seem to act like it when she was in front of the crowd. Cracking her back a bit she'd adjust her corset. It seemed as if Brink weren’t really interested, his voice didn't show it. But then again that was Brink for you, showing little emotion in his voice. Her eyes would shift back over him and fully examine him. His Ebony black eyes would attract and make any girl fawn and melt over him? How come she didn't? Maybe because he was too different for her? Or were they similar in some ways? They both seemed to care about the small animals, but... there was something different about him, she didn't understand... why he seemed to put off a cold vibe. Shaking her train of thought she'd look back at everyone giving them a warm smile. "Let's have a grand show... whataya say?" She'd ask everyone shifting in her outfit, glad that Brink had given her the cloak back. Gently taking it out of his hand's she'd wrap it around her shoulders once more, making sure it was secure and wouldn't fall off once more.

Image


Meowing he'd paw at Alice, of course he wanted to play, but right at the moment he liked the attention he was getting from Brink. looking up at him with his bright blue tiger eyes he'd lick the man's cheek. His tail flicking left and right, noticing the small smile he had on his face. It was rare for Moshe to see Brink smile, and he thought Brink looked sorta cute with the grin. Carefully he placed his paw upon the man's cheek and reached up to nuzzle his nose. Purring rumbling deep within Moshe's chest, made him feel pretty proud of himself. He'd look back at Alynna, and give a mental chuckle, She was daring, and her performance tonight would be amazing...he just knew of it. Now if only he could be the dangerous panther being tamed by Julius tonight, everything would be set. He'd be in the spotlight with Julius, and not in the background with Alynna. Not that he didn't mind being with Alynna in her performances, but he wanted to be in the spotlight... once... just once. Turning his attention back on Brink he'd snuggle close to the man's chest and close his eyes, glad that he was getting all the attention in the world.

Brink Orpheus

Brink was holding Moshe close and petting him loosing his interest in those around him. He faintly registered Alynna and Synthia's question. Blinking he looked back up his face going back to it's neutral expression his dark eye staring at Alynna. "Sure... Just as I said before... Don't get hurt." Brink closed his eye's for a moment trying to resist the urge to touch his eye-patch at the memories. "Also make sure that you taking on all of this won't wear you out... Nothing is worse then me having to see friends so worn out... Besides were here for a few days..." Brink picked up a piece of bacon and ate it enjoying the food his cousin had cooked.

Brink went back to holding and petting Moshe holding the cute purring ball of fur carefully and gently to his chest. This would surprise most as Brink was normally seen lugging around crates. His gruffness did not help. Brink smirked and his eyes warmed as he dangled and wiggled his fingers up and above the feline to amuse him. "Kitty..." Brink's voice slipped and instead of coming out in it's normal emotionless tone it was softer and actually held some form of emotion though Brink was sure Nixie would just pop out of the woodwork to point it out and embarrass him she was indeed gone and out of sight. Much to Brink's relief...

Risque:

Glad that Brink had allowed her to join in the performance she'd give him a relieved hug, planing a kiss on his cheek. "You know, you are the best boss ever!" She'd squeal, very unlikely for her to do, but hey, she was happy... and she was seeing a side that she never really saw from Brink before, his tender side. Keeping really close to him she'd breathe under her breath, whispering in his ear, "How about we go grab a bite to eat in town after the performance?" Her green eyes looked up when she saw Julius enter the caravan. Standing up straight she'd cross her arms and shake her head,"Well... seems you finally made it... Leo." She'd say smirking under her breath, before turning on her heel, after grabbing an apple of course. "See ya around Brink...." She'd say giving a casual wave, not even waiting for Brink to give her an answer. Her blue hair would flow with the breeze from the door, making it look like a wild sea churning.


Moshe:

Meowing he'd continue nuzzling Brink until he heard Alynna's words. His eyes would be on hers the whole time she talked to him. Why does she think that Brink would do something like that? He'd think to himself before leaping down from Brinks grip and transforming into his form. His black tail twitched as he continued watching her retreating figure, "So Alice, wanna go play now?" He'd say with a chuckle, his green eyes glowing with anticipation. He was in a playful mood now that he had gotten his attention.

Synthia looked at Brink as a grin displayed itself on her face, she was so happy that they both allowed it nodding "I will go practice extra hard after I am finished eating. I promise Aly wont get hurt" she wondered where the Aly came from but it seemed to fit perfectly in the sentence well, repeating it in her head. She liked the ring of Aly so every now and than it might slip out of her lips, if Alynna was okay with that fact of course. Wipeing the jiuce from the apple off her chin. As Aly put her cloak back on she looked down at her apple and took a few more bites finishing, right before she finished her apple and threw the core in a trash can. Noticing Julius walk in with Derrick she smiled at both of them, happiness was clear in her eyes and her features "good morning you two, how was your guy's sleep?". Watching Alynna leave, latter on she would need her height and and a outline of her body to practice with. She was always surprised at how strong Julius looked, she was not surprised though considering he worked with the lions. She was tempted to ask him before if that when he was there if she put pet one of the lions, she had never gotten to before.

Looking at Derricks shirt it reminded her of Julius some-how, the color suited Derrick and he looked rumpled in it. She had to admit the look suited him, "nice shirt Derrick, it suits you very well" she said in a light tone, she was still in her good mood obviously. After Julius grabbed some food she pulled her plate of food back over and ate some of the eggs, Nixie's cooking was the best she had ever tasted not that she had tasted many other peoples cooking though. She knew that Derrick had a crush on Julius it was very obvious when she had seen them alone together she tried to steer clear and find a route around so Derrick could have more alone time with Julius. She looked at Moshe as her mood mellowed out back to usual but still pretty happy, than looked at Alice than over at Brink who surprised her a bit he looked softer than usual. Thinking the theory of him secretly being soft just gained some more evidence saying that he was, than looking back at Derrick to hear his response and Julius's response to her greeting.

They looked good together, not that she would actually tell either one of them she did not want to struck some cord with either one Julius seemed oblivious to Derrick's crush though. Which was really cute even though it was so obvious sometimes, she secretly wished Derrick luck. Even though she was to coward to actually say to Derrick. Watching Brink return and seem soft to Derrick she wondered how many people really warmed up to the skinny boy, or did Brink just like small creatures. Was that why he was warm sometimes around her even if it was just a tiny bit, she was the same height as Derrick but she was heavier. Which like any girl made her a bit upset but that was because she had a lot of muscle for her age well enough to help moving somethings and throwing knives.

Plus she was a girl and had breasts so that helped with that weight, so she guessed it was only understandable she sometimes felt like giving all her food to Derrick but she ended up only slipping a few things onto the boys plate every now and than. She felt so short though because he was younger than her and yet the same height, she wondered if it was because she didn't drink enough milk.

|Alice "Kitten" Darkwood|


Alice petted Moshe softly and throughly. "Let's go outside and play! Oh! We can go climb a tree!" She jumped around in her bliss and ran outside, enjoying the fresh air. 'Mmm! I wonder what we could explore today before the show!' Alice spread her arms wide and spun in circles. "Whee!" Laying on the ground, she stared up at the sky, admiring the clear blueness. "It's like an ocean above our heads."

Turning over onto her stomach, she brought her tail to her face and began to play with it. 'When's Moshe gonna come out and play?'

Moshe:

Running out of the caravan he caught Alice laying on the ground. Chuckling to himself he'd run over and pounce on her nuzzling her nose. "How ya doin today kitten?" He'd purr out rolling over on his side and looking at her. "Should've stayed blonde." He'd murmur under his breath seeing her blonde roots showing through her green hair. Purring would rumble deep within his chest as he laid on the grass with her. His fingers would brush against her cheek, brushing some hair back. Moshe cared about Alice, though he was unsure if it was more of a brother thing, or maybe its because she had a tail as well. He had heard rumours about how she'd become half cat half human...but he was born like this. His tail would twitch softly as his thoughts were churning about her. For the moment, he'd play the bigger brother, that's how he liked being seen to the younger folk, the older brother figure... at least to those shy and nervous.

Risque:

Sighing, she'd sit in the middle of the big top, doing small sleight of hands. How could I have been so stupid?! She'd think to herself, full of frustration. She wasn't sure Brink would even go out to dinner with her. Though it would be interesting to see him outside of work. For eight years, that's all she's seen, him at work... she was curious how was away from the circus. She took her hat off and stared at its stripes. Her blue hair fell around her shoulders covering her face. "I'm an idiot." She muttered under her breath, throwing her hat off to her side.

"How ya doin' today Kitten?" Alice looked at Moshe at smiled sweetly. "I'm actually doing very well today, thanks for asking! What can we do today? I kinda feel like exploring, don't you?" She sat up and brushed her hair with her hands."Should've stayed blonde." She looked at him through her hair, an odd green with blonde starting to show through the roots. "I don't know, I like my hair blonde."

Slightly tugging at her hair, she look up at the clouds, spotting several different shapes. "Ooh! It's a cat!" Alice exclaimed pointing up at one of the shapes in the sky. It did indeed look similar to a cat shape. She smiled more, giggling happily. "Let's play, Moshe!"

Moshe:

Purring he'd nuzzle her and stand up. "Allright... lets go...." He'd start running off into town. "No place better to explore than the town eh?" He'd stick out his tongue, standing a bit away his arms crossed. "I wanna see how many are eager to see the circus... since I'll be in Julius's performance tonight." Meowing he'd give his best roar. "Come on kitten!" He'd meow and chuckle, waiting for her to take a risk and follow him.

Alynna was only halfway across the rope when she stepped wrong. There was nothing there to fall on, or anyone to catch her. In a split second her hand caught the rope. A scream would escape her lips. "Help..." She'd squeak out her eyes closing. She hated falling, and should Brink catch her practising by herself, she was afraid that he'd lecture her, or give her a look of disappointment.

She hardly had any upper body stregnth. Her hand was slipping, what had gone wrong this time? She always performed in heels...how come this time she had to mess up. She saw that no one was in the big top, or else she would call someone over. " Help me!" She'd scream out hoping her voice carried with the wind. She couldn't fall, she wouldn't be able to perform tonight, she'd let Synthia down, she'd let herself down.

She was on borrowed time, only a matter of minutes before she fell and broke something.

Image


His ears flicked at the faint sounds of screams, turning his head near the direction he didn't see anyone in any danger, "Hold on Kitten." He'd state his voice firm, as his mind went into big brother mode. Turning on his heel he ran to the big top, not focusing on anything but shifting. By the time he got to the big top his was in his fully grown wild panther form. His tail flicking and twitching wildly. His eyes would open wide as he saw Alynna dangling by only one arm. Dammit! I can't shift....but... should they think a wild panther is attacking... He knew what he had to do, no one has seen his panther form, but Julius had heard about it. Taking in a deep breath he gave a loud dangerous roar, knowing that it echoed throughout the camp. Then he heard Alynna's blood curdling scream, good thing to know he could scare her.

Alice looked around, confused in her own little world. 'What's going on? Is someone hurt?' She climbed up a tree and sat at the very top, looking up at the sky. She counted the clouds that floated by, still waiting for Moshe to come back and play with her. 'I wanna play, but he seems busy right now...'

She continued to stay up in the tree until a sudden drowsiness came over her. 'Nyaa~... I'm just gonna take a small cat nap up here then...' As soon as she had finished that thought, she closed her eyes and fell into a quiet sleep.

Calais Lochley


The sudden lack of sun was enough to pull Calais from his fragmented sleep, and he awoke with a start, nearly knocking himself to the ground— which, admittedly, would have been painful, given that he'd fallen asleep in a Y-shaped crook in a tree branch. His legs, long and spindly, hung over one edge, and his arms hung over the other looking just the same. He scrabbled to find some sort of hold before he slipped. His body was at an odd angle, and it was only a matter of time, now.

For all the effort, though, it really wasn't worth it. What little sleep he had gotten in the past hour hadn't done much to push away the headache throbbing in his temples, and whoever it was who had woken him was in for an earful. Locked in the blind, sleepless rage he knew too well for comfort, Calais' green eyes skimmed his surroundings for the perpetrator. When none was found, all there was left to do was pause and think. He'd felt a sudden burst of cold, heard a slight scrabbling, and then the light was bright in his eyes, again. Hardly pleasant and hardly distinctive. Calais peeled himself off the tree, yawned, and stretched a bit. Perhaps he'd unearth his bed and bury himself in his tent, again, where no noise would find him to wake him up. He needed the sleep. The nightmares had been getting worse, lately, and sooner or later he knew he'd end up sleepwalking again.

And he knew how the last time that had happened had worked out.

He bit the inside of his cheek and stared up at the sky, willing his eyes to wake his mind up. Puffy clouds, the only kind he'd ever seen back on the plains, hung heavy in the sky. They were so nauseatingly bright on his pinpoint pupils.

But there was something else that wasn't nauseatingly bright, and that served to sicken him even more. His stomach twisted with annoyance when he caught the silhouette out of the corner of his eye: a small, girlish figure slumped in the tree above him. So she had been the shadow. Calais had half a mind to go bother the sleeping girl and get on her case about her waking him up, but he decided against it, eventually just tossing at her a handful of pebbles in the hopes of annoying the tiny, catlike creature above. He stalked off in silent fumes through the fairgrounds like a member of the walking dead, passing by a parade of dolls and their blonde, elfin leader somewhere along his stumbled journey. He nodded in greeting and didn't much care when she only shied away. It wasn't as though he cared. Not really.

Calais thrust the canvas flap covering the entrance to his tent aside and crouched inside it, reveling in the shade but calm at heart with the way it let pinpricks of light just through enough to allow him to rest in surety that he was alone in the dark. Not bothering to unearth the cot, he fell asleep on the floor in a pile of colorful cloths. The light bouncing through the glass prisms scattered around his nest cast scintillating colors over his face. It was calm, here.

Well, it was for now. He really hoped nothing needed fixing before the performances. If it did, someone always ran to get him. Someone always had to wake him up. He might as well sleep while he could.

Lenka Paris: Lightgiver


The tiny homunculus was in grave need of care, and Lenka was all too quick to jump to her feet in the rush to provide him with it. She'd ignored Spade, absorbed in the woes of the tiny creature as it creaked in pain. Did it understand pain? Perhaps not, but it certainly felt it. She could feel it, even in the basest parts of her mind, and the doll, animated with that tiny fragment of her soul, could feel it all the same. Its cries grew ever more helpless. Already on her feet, she was in her performance tent quickly enough, though her legs were hardly built for running and she'd grown tired after only a few moments. Her hands pinched the gash in the doll's head shut to keep the stuffing from falling out.

There was no way she was going to lose the creature she'd trained for so long fade away here because of a tear.

Lenka re-animated the crumpled performers, who lined up behind her like ducklings, following her brisk steps across the grounds with their own tottering runs. Their footsteps were quiet over the grass, and they hardly made a sound even in passing the man that had so kindly created their joint systems for them. On arriving at Lenka's tent, the three performance dolls waited outside while Lenka herself stepped in, eyes skimming its inside for her sewing supplies. There was cloth and a half-finished dress, a doll, and a costume, none of which were even remotely the two basic materials she sought.

The sack creature had quieted its cries, and in this, Lenka found herself somewhat cheered up. At least it had manners. She'd taught it well. Perhaps, someday, it would be a tiny man of its own, but for now it was just as much mortal, hanging over death, as it was robotic and detached from the soul that had given its life. Now wasn't the time to worry about the distinction between humanity and life.

All she needed was a damn needle and some thread.

|Alice "Kitten" Darkwood|


Waking up from her nap, Alice looked down from her perch. She looked at a figure starting to walk away, thinking to herself, 'It's quite rude to throw pebbles at someone who's taking a nap...' Jumping down and landing softly in her hands and feet, she walked into the larger tent.

Looking around, Alice searched for both the figure and Moshe. Calling out in a soft voice, she softly said, "Moshe! Can we play now?"

Moshe:

Chuckling he'd unravel himself and hold up one hand. "Syn... don't be scared." He'd whisper, even as his body shimmered and shifted, bones cracking and stretching, fur sprouting all over his body. He'd fall to the ground, and look up at her, he was in his panther form. The form he had used to scare Alynna. The form he had used to get help. He'd lay down in front of her and give a playful meow he wanted his belly rubbed. He'd remember that him and Alice were supposed to be playing right now, though he really wanted to help Synthia, and cheer her up. His ears flicked as he gave her a playful look. He was going to cheer her up whether it was him staying out of his act or being completely adorable.

Alynna:

Sighing she'd bow to Ash, she needed to find Brink. She felt horrible, and mostly guilty. First, she'd go to her caravan... she needed to actually do something...she'd need to see something. Before she knew it she was halfway to the caravan, the familiar smell of Jasmine and roses started to relax her. Opening her caravan she'd quickly run to her bed leaving the door slightly ajar. Hidden underneath the bed was a small jewellery box was her mother's necklace. Lifting it gently out of its velvet case, she'd remove her current necklace and gently place it around her neck. Sniffing she'd reach over and grab the small photograph she had of them and held it close to her.
I wish my parents could see me now....

She'd think to herself tears falling down her cheeks. How she missed them so...

|Alice "Kitten" Darkwood|


Alice went back outside and climbed her tree again. 'Geez, it feels so lonely out here... I wish I could have someone to play with me right now...' Looking around her, she saw all the tents that were put up to be performed in later that day. "It takes a whole village," she began to sing, "To raise our children. It takes a whole village to raise one child." Looking up at the sky, she closed her eyes and continued singing. "We all everyone must share the burden." Taking a deep breath, she sang quietly to herself, "We all everyone must share the joy."

Closing her eyes again, Alice took another little cat nap in the tree.

Out of nowhere, Alice heard the sound of Nixie's voice over the megaphone. "Oh, the show must be starting!" She quickly jumped down from her perch and ran as quickly and as quietly as she could into the large tent. Searching through the people and the other performers, Alice finally spotted Nixie.

As she was walking to her, she suddenly couldn't remember whose act was after whose. She tapped her gently on the shoulder and asked sweetly, "Hey Nixie, when do I go up? I forgot when I go..."

Alice looked to see the crowd and began to feel a churning feeling in her stomach. 'I don't feel so well, but I guess I should be able to perform as I practiced before.' Taking a deep breath, she calmed herself down and focused her mind and energy into the thought of her act. 'It's just gonna be really simple contortions, so it won't be that bad. I can definitely do this.'
