I am finishing this story in honor and in memory of my writing partner, Lilypad.

ImageImageIt is with joyful tears we say goodbye,

A taste so bitter on our tongues.

We will be back again this time, next year.

When the Circus Air Ship comes.


Image

Image

Earth was never the final destination, it was only the starting point. The goal was the sky, a bigger, and wider void of endless possibilities and destinations. The race towards the sky had begun, fleet after fleet launching as earth's resources dried up. Lakes and oceans became scarce, fields were now sand, and starvation became a part of everyday life. When the earth failed, the sky thrived. Those who could piled onto ships and took to the skies, where colonies floated above the withering earth, lingering in its atmosphere.

Image

In order to adapt to the skies, human kind had to change. They grew extra appendages and limbs, their lungs expanding, their hearts growing larger. Their bodies had to accomodate for their new surroundings. It became commonplace to see humans with tails or horns. Some were still deemed outcasts, judged by the amount of tails they had or if they grew any at all. Deterred by these games, two such humans comandered a sky ship and began to make a home for themselves in the vast openeness of the clouds.

Seeing the need to fill a void, the two outcasts began to collect others. With mouths to feed and bills to pay, they needed a way to earn money. The idea of a Circus came to them, seeing a gap that entertaintment could fit right into. Cirque Du Dreams was born nearly overnight. A ragtag circus full of performers who were still learning on the job, Cirque Du Dreams became a hit success among the floating cities and the traveling circus continued to grow and improve.

❝La la la, lu li la, that makes my heart stronger than steel!❞

"Ugh, it hurts." Xi'an panted, bending over. She had run right into one of the steaming pipes, burning her arm. "Hang on," Levi ripped a piece of cloth off of his coat and soaked it in water, wrapping it around Xi'an's arm. "Thanks," she panted, wincing. "Let's get back to the ship," Felix suggested, Xi'an and Levi nodding in agreement. The three of them began the trek back to the ship, the city beginning to wind down as the sun set. It would get cold quickly, the sky ships always became frigid once the sun went down. "Hang on you three!" A man in a black coat approached them, Xi'an froze, craddling her arm. "What do you want?" Felix asked, wary. Levi stepped in front of them. "Can we help you, officer?" Levi asked, "Where are your guardians? You shouldn't be on the streets without them." He asked, crossing his arms, his voice gravely.

"We were just on our way back home," Levi said quickly. "We work for the Cirque, so we were just wandering the city until show time." The man gave them a long, hard, stare. After a tense moment, he nodded. "Alright, off you go then. Make sure you abide by the laws next time, no wandering past sun down without a permit. These are dangerous streets at night," he waved them off. Felix and Xi'an breathed a sigh of relief. "That was amazing Levi," Felix slapped him on the back, the three of them continuing back to the ship. "What do you think would have happened if he didn't let us go?" Xi'an mused, they were nearing the bridge now. "Nothing good, I imagine," Levi replied. Pandora and Fox were waiting for them, the two of them looking cross. Key was standing sheepishly behind them, her tail hanging between her legs.

"You three are in so much trouble. Do you have any idea how worried your Mother was, Xi'an?" Xi'an shook her head, wincing as she held her arm. "What's wrong?" Pandora's motherly instinct kicked in, she swooped Xi'an up, unwrapping the wound gently. "Come on, let's get you to the med bay. You two," she pointed to Felix and Levi, "go get ready. We'll dole out your punishment after the show. Levi, you'll be collecting tickets tonight," Levi nodded, following Felix inside. "Xi'an, are you okay?" Key asked, worriedly reaching out for her. "Go get ready," Pandora nudged her daughter aside. "I'll take care of Xi'an, you need to be preapred for the show." Key looked at her feet, "I'll be okay," Xi'an assured her, patting her head. Key was always so cute, Xi'an thought. She would do anything to protect that smile. Key looked as though she wanted to say something, but instead, turned tail and went to get ready.

"There, how does that feel?" Pandora asked, holding Xi'an's arm up to the light. "Better," Xi'an admitted. It was wrapped in aloe and bandages. She would be able to cover it easily with her dress. "Your Mother is worried about you, you should go to her." Xi'an looked away bitterly. Pandora placed both hands on Xi'an's shoulders, looking her in the eyes. "Your Mother means well, Xi'an. She loves you, even if you don't always think so." Xi'an pulled away, shaking her head. "I should go get ready," she rose, hugging her arm against her chest. She could still feel the sting on her cheek this morning from the slap her Mother had delivered. Did she always mean well? Xi'an wasn't sure. She did know that her Mother was a broken woman and broken people couldn't always align their actions with their thoughts.

❝You don't have to be afraid, you just have to believe.❞

Why did Key have this strange feeling as she watched Xi'an walk away with Pandora? Why did she feel as though she was being left behind? "Xixi?" Key's tail fell as her friend was led to the first aid room in order to bandage her arm. "Key, come on, we have a show to prepare for." Felt said, guiding her away from the door. Levi and Felix had already been taken away, the two of them on ticket and clean up duty for their scandal. "What's wrong?" Felt asked as they sat in the dressing room, Argent putting makeup on. "I just feel... left out sometimes." Key replied, even though she had urged them to escape on their own. "Well, that's ridiculous. You know Xi'an and Felix would jump off the ship for you," Felt grinned, tilting Key's chin up. "Besides, staying out of trouble is something to be proud of. You're a good girl Kiki," Felt pat her head. "Now, get ready, or your mother will have our necks." Key nodded, turning back to her mirror.

She put on her leotard and put her hair into pigtails, wondering if Xi'an would be backstage soon. Outside, the crowd had begun to gather, it was time for them to take their places. "Everyone, ten minutes!" Fox yelled, they could hear him through the curtain. Key slipped her shoes on, tying them up around her ankles so that they wouldn't slip. "Let's do this," Felt clapped her on the back. Argent rose, Key would remain backstage until it was her act, the last act. "Break a leg," she looked for Felix, who was sitting on a stack of crates, looking glum. "Ticket duty is the worst," he groaned, perking up immediately when he saw her. "Fox wasn't too angry, was he?"

Key shook her head, "No, but he made me clean the whole dining room," Felix blanched. "That's unfair! We were the ones that busted out." Key giggled, "it's fine. I didn't mind," Levi suddenly walked up behind them, wearing a uniform that was two sizes too big. Key giggled upon seeing him, Levi scratching the back of his head. "Have either of you seen Xi'an?" She asked, looking backstage. "Not since we got back, but I did hear her Mother screaming her brains out." Key went pale, wondering if she should have gone out instead of Xixi. "Hey guys," Xi'an startled them, the three of them jumping. Her grin was mischveious, she yanked Key's tail, Key squeaking, which made Pandora shush them. "What was that for?" Key asked, rubbing her behind. "Payback," Xi'an replied, crossing her arms.

"Kids, get ready!" Pandora called, they needed to take their places. "Hey, I'll be watching from out there." Levi waved, exiting the curtains and going to take a seat. Key crossed her arms. "Do you still not like him?" Felix asked, Key's expression changing, becoming softer. "It's not that I don't like him... I just never asked for a partner." Felix nodded his head. "I can see what you mean. If Fox suddenly said that they had gotten another fire eater, I would probably be mad too." Felix rose, he needed to go get ready. "Break a leg," Key waved. She went to help Pandora fix her corset, tying it in the back for her Mother. "Break a leg," Pandora kissed her on the top of the head, then strode out from the curtains with Fox, their hands connected.
