Slowly steping off the train Nala looks around. There were less tents set up than usual, but that didn't bother her. She was used to the close quarters in her home camp. Walking over to the paper everyone was crowned around she sees that she is in tend four with the animal trainers. Sighing she walks back to the train and grabs her trunk. Returning to the tent she claims one of the queen beds as her own.
----------------------------------------------------------------

Liam as usual was ridin in the back of the train with his animals. They belonged to the circus, but it was Liam who raised them. Who took care of them. Duchess, the oldest female elephant. Was terrified of the train, so when it stopped she stared to freak out. "Nona!" he called out " come give me a hand with Duchess!" he rushes over to try and calm her. " shhh, girl. It's ok."

Nona and Lillia James

As the train slowly rolled to a stop, Nona's blue eyes slowly opened. The world outside was grassy, green and almost bare save the tents where they would be staying whenever they weren't performing. She rubbed the exhaustion from her eyes and moved to stand. It was difficult due to the tiny blonde head which rested on her lap. She shook her little sister's shoulder and said softly, "Lillia, it's time to wake up." When her sister didn't move she sighed and picked her up princess style. She managed to make it to the door before her sister's eyes slowly slid open. "Nona?" she said, squirming in her sister's arms to be placed back on the floor, "Are we there?" Nona grabbed her and Lillia's bags before she jumped from the car, turning to catch her sister who followed behind her. "Yes, Lilly, we're there."

Nona held on to her little sister's hand as they moved from the door of the train to the list that was attached to a nearby post. "You're in tent 5 with the others, Lillia. I'm in..." She skimmed the list looking for her name. When she found it she stopped. "...tent four with.. James, Coraline, and... Liam." She smiled to herself a little at the last name. Liam was really the only person she got along with besides her sister. The others were fine, but didn't talk to her much. He was really good with animals too. She heard her name being called behind her over the loud, panicked cries of one of their elephants. "Speak of the devil," she said and turned to the source of the call. "I'll be right there, Liam! I just need to walk Lillia to her tent!" She looked down at her sister and smiled reassuringly. "Ready, Lillia?"

She took a hold of her sister's hand and walked her to the door of her tent. Once they had arrived, she crouched down so she was face to face with Lillia. "Now, Lilly. I'm only a few tents down from you if you need anything okay?" She kissed her sister on her forehead and muttered an "I love you" before turning and headed towards Liam.

She hopped up into the train cart with the animals, grabbing a few of Duchess's favorite treats as she went. "Shhh. Duchess. It's alright. Everything's okay." She held a treat up to Duchess's nose and waited for her to take it before stroking i her trunk. "See? It's alright. You can get off this scary contraption now, but you have to follow me, ok?" She grabbed another treat from her pocket and guided the elephant down the special ramp. Once she was on the ground, Nona gave Duchess the treat. Then she placed the rest of the treats by a nearby post where she tied Duchess to make sure she didn't try to run away. The thing about elephants was, when they're as big as Duchess, once they run, there's not way you're going to be able to stop them. Then again, they weren't as skilled with animals as Liam and Nona. Once Duchess was tied up, she turned and smiled at Liam. "There. Done. We should head to the tent though before all the good beds are taken." She placed her "mask" back on her face and headed to tent four. She looked around the room and noticed that the other two girls, Nala and Cora, had already arrived. Confused, she looked back for Liam before turning back to the two. "Hi, Cora... Nala... Wait, Nala are you in this tent?" She moved over to one of the beds and placed her bag on it before looking around. It seemed Cora had claimed the cot in the back, but the bed was still open. Odd, but she decided to claim it for herself.

Meanwhile, Lillia stared at the door, thumb in her mouth. She wasn't sucking on it. She was just biting her nail. She knew better than to be sucking her thumb at the age of 7. She took a deep breath, picked up her bags that Nona had placed beside her and climbed the stairs into the tent. There were already four others inside, discussing the living arrangements. She looked around the room and noticed that there was only 3 places for five people to sleep. She placed her bags by the front door and walked over towards them. She was afraid to speak up, mainly because Alec scared her when he was in a bad mood. She looked at the others and wondered if they were going to let her share the bed or if they were going to take seniority and make her sleep on the floor. She really hoped she could sleep on the bed. She had a hard enough time sleeping on the train. Sleeping on the ground wasn't going to be any better for her.

Nona James

Nona chewed her bottom lip as Nala spoke to Liam. The way she strutted about the place irritated her greatly. Just because she was a gypsy doesn't mean she gets to do whatever she wants.. She thought. Once Nala left the tent, Nona sighed and sat on her own bed. "She irritates me," she mumbled under her breath almost absentmindedly. She began to organize things about her space, placing her shoes under her bed and fixing the clothes in her bag so they were in more of a neat stack and less of a pile. Once she finished, she sat on her bed. Her eyes, as if by instinct moved to Coraline. Things were awkward between the two since Nona's drunk incident. She wasn't sure if Cora had been the cause or just a witness. Either way, Nona was no longer comfortable around the girl. Sharing a tent was going to be....difficult.

She laid back on her bed and took a deep breath. Instantly, she began to relax. The bed was infinitely more comfortable than the train. It was even more comfortable than any bed she had ever slept on before. More so than her own before she joined the circus. For a split second, she worried about her little sister. The worry didn't last long. Soon, she found herself falling asleep. She had the "falling experience" which shook her temporarily from her sleep. She turned towards Liam, noticing he was planning on sleeping, too, and said, "Don't forget... we have to feed the lions...and the tigers..." In the back of her mind she hoped he would finish the line, but somehow she doubted it. They were good friends, but they weren't that close.

" and bears, oh my." Liam says with a smile " I already took care of it." laying down he reaches in to the backpack he was carrying. Pulling out a picture he smiles, it was of his father teaching him how to train a lion. It was taken just a few days before their circus was taken over. I miss them so much. he thinks before putting the picture under his pillow and trying to fall asleep.


Nala wallis to her tent, walking in she realizes her apprentice was no where to be found. "Great, that kid is going to get himself killed." she says walking over to her bed and sitting down. After a few minutes she walks outside and to the train " Dan Guang! Hurry up, or I'll take he entire tent for myself and you'll be sleeping with the horses!" she calles out

Trains never sat very well with James, it was a good way to make him nauseous, especially for TWO goddamn weeks of moving around. There was far too much relief when he finally reached solid groud that he layed his back onto the ground for a precious few seconds before he'd get going. Jeans and shirt or not, he was going to dirty his only pair of normal clothing. Picking himself up, he grasped for two of the immense suitcases, and dragged them towards the pole.

To his despair, he was bunking with not one, not two, but three other people. Among two were animal tamers and just to make it clear; James hate animals. They shit everywhere, they can kill you in literally one blow, and when humanity finally conquers these gruesome beasts...we make them acts. Fabulous. I don't care what Liam says, those animals, one day they'll just mess shit up and go rampant, he'll see.

He started to edge himself towards the tent, dragging the oversized suitcases behind him, thinking of the names that were read out. Cora, his acquiantence/clownette-to-his-clown, was, he believed, to be the second recent person to join the circus. She was an odd one at that, smoking, drinking, and meditating but the acts got a lot more livelier with two clowns again. There's only so much one can do on his own afterall. Nona, was the most recent to join them, and brave enough to face one of the animals the big top could offer: she was tough. Though the first day Cora came to the circus, she was littered with bruises, cuts, James was sure she tried to hide it under the makeup but you know what? A clown knows. Especially when he's been applying makeup for eight damn years. Liam on the other hand, he's been here before James went on board, and that was a murky area to begin with. How do you begin that conversation: "Hey, want to tell me how you were the first one to get roped, bended backwards, and screwed?" Dammit. Now he was itching for a smoke with his hands full. Luckily, he was nearing his tent, just when Nala popped out of there. Surely he would have said something IF he wasn't deprived of all life that travelling could do to a person. His memory flashed back to Nona's drunk incident but his body didn't yet have the luxury to wander about.

James pushed through the flap of the tent and trudged through the empty bed, shuffling his feet along until he made it, hands open to free the suitcases with a *THUMP* on the ground, falling face down in the crummy mattress that everyone avoided. "Jesus Fucking Christ..." He swore, taking a pack of cigarettes from his back pocket along with a lighter, and slowly sitting up on the cot. The smell of the thing made sure that he'd never go face first into it. Ever. Having lit up, he let the intoxicating smoke in his lungs, and out through his nostrils for that fiery sensation that managed to tame his brain for the meantime.

"Guys." He said, just as his eyes flickered round to Coraline's bottle of liqour, and soon his tongue was thirsy for a little sip. It was still morning though. Or was it the afternoon? "I hate travelling." James groaned, falling back into his cot back first, and closing his eyes for some damn sanctuary. "If you guys can start over again; what would you be?" It was a random question that popped in mind, one he'd never ask in any other situation, but dazed and logy that he was now; he was curious. He truly didn't know much of the people here. Liam included and they were under the same striped tarp for years.

Ke'ai immediately heard his name and he almost had a heart attack. "C-coming, Nala!" The little Asian boy was hurrying with his luggage, mostly spending time on trying to drag his stuff and trying to get to the tent. He knew he needed more upper muscle strength, he felt weak at where he was now. He didn't want to be seen as that one boy who likes to wear women's clothing forever! Finally gathering up the rest of the strength he had left, he made it to his and Nala's tent. He knew they weren't gonna spend most of their time in the tent, but it comes in handy when its storming and they can't practice. He dropped his luggage and let out a overwhelming breath he had been holding. "Nala? Are we s-seriously gonna practice today too? I-I don't think I can handle anymore excercise..." He knew he was gonna have to practice anyway, but its the thought that counts. Doesn't hurt to try...sometimes. He pushes his glasses up further, just in case it was slipping. He looked like nerd doing it though.

" It's a gift, thats why I chose you. You have a Gypsy soul, you have to win them with your smile. Charm them, make them look at something else." She says walking closer to him " that right there is half the reason we dress like we do. To bring the eyes and attention away from their belongings." holding out his wallet Nala says " now try on me, it's simple." she holds up her pointer and second finger. "Use these to pick things up. When you have it pull your fingers to your palm slowly." standing and putting a wallet in her pocket, "Now try."

Nodding Liam says " night."

Noticing Hector, Nala smiles slightly. Time for some fun.. She quickly looks away from him. if he wants to talk, he'll come over. Giving up on her idiot apprentice, she walks over to one of her stashes and pulls out a small canteen. Taking a swig, she watches the camp wrapping up for the night. But Nala wasn't, her day was just staring. She loves the night, it makes her feel safe.

Hector found himself waking back into the tent, half of him wanted to apologize for his rude behavior and half of him wanted to slap the girl that half-insulted half kinda cute. He walked back into the tent placed his hands in his pocket stroked his chin and uttered a rather groaning sound and looked at her. "So....yea" He said rubbing the back of his head. "Am kinda...sorta...sorry for kinda sorta insulting you. " He coughed out. He wasn't the greatest at apologizing, rather he wasn't even that great in anything. He was like a bag of sand..not needed.

Hector was surprised, he didn't expect her to be so nice. "Umm... sure" he muttered wondering kind of drink they would be drinking. He took himself a seat and made himself comfortable. He hated Whiskey, beer, white wine etc.. basically anything but red wine but he wasn't going to lose the only friend he would probably have.

Hector


Hector blushed and said "You read my mind, red wine is absolutely fanabalitic fantadocious!" He said saying one of those phrases they used in the circus. He heard her laugh, he smiled...there was something about her that made him want to learn more.. to explore her... he found women as a puzzle to be solved and she was one to solve. He grinned as she call him to sit next to her, he didn't refuse, he plumped into a small seat and a sign of happiness passed over him. He looked at her and said "Your really pretty...."

Hector's smile faded, he frowned and looked at her. "It's a long educated story.." He muttered nibbling his lower lip he clutched his tied and played with it, He raised his eyebrow, "If I don't look like a Ring Master than what do I look like?" In his mind he begged God she would not say ' clown' the word his parents labeled him with, him being the only one in the family who wasn't successful. He grabbed the cup and took a sip, and looked at her "Well then how did you end up into this circus?" he asked interested.

Hector grunted. It seemed like she enjoyed being int this place. For one reason his boss was the devil himself and he hated the fact that his family treated him like crap just because he was in the circus. He sighed and put his hands on his face mourning himself something he often did. Hector walked towards the exit after grabbing Nala's hand to show her the night sky.

Nala smiling slightly allows hector to lead her out of her tent. Looking up she says " I love the night, no one ever really goes ou in to it so its mostly undiscovered." she leaves her hand in Hector's, even though she knows she should pull away.


Liam smiles at how child like Nona was, the he reminded himself how much older he was than her. " yeah, they are awesome aren't they?" he says walking over to her.

Hectors insides tingle. What was this strange feeling? he thought. The warmth of her hand warmed him through the rather windy night. He smiled as she cuddled up against him as they sat and gazed at the stars. "True" He softly whispered into her ears as the moon shined it's light.

Nala woke slowly to the sounds of the circus members starting to work. She wasn't in her bed, or any bed for that matter. When she looked at what she was sleeping on she saw it was a mans chest. She was pretty sure she knew who it was without looking but she did anyway. She looked up and saw that it was indeed Hector, well it looks like we fell asleep out here. she thinks. Not wanting to leave without talking to him she curls in to him more and waits for him to wake.

Hectors dreamy big eyes finally opened. He found himself not at all in a bed but on the wet grass. Strange.. last night was just a mere forgotten memory.. t always happened when he drank. He whispered good morning into her ears before getting up and rushing into his tent.. he thought about going back and hugging and kissing her.. but.. then again he really didn't want to rush into this relationship..he was Hector Raven not a pimp. He wanted to dress himself but was puzzled when she followed him back into the tent her face filled with confusion.

Liam woke a few minutes before Nona did, he just didn't let it show because he wanted to think a little. He knew that Nona had opened up to him last night, but he didn't want to pushe his luck. When he heard her wake and sigh he knew he had to says something. " I carried you back to the tent after you fell asleep watching the stars." he says in explanation.


Nala smiles slightly " I don't really want to be annoying but, how did we fall asleep out there?" she asks trying to figure it out.

Hector smiled slightly anbd looked down at his feet and picked up a empty bottle and said "Ask the liquor." Hew grunted and pulled her in close giving hr a warm hug. He kind of smelled like grass and wine at the same time but the smell wasn't revolting. Hector ruffled his hair and looked at Nala still in the room, it was a bit awkward. "Umm.. so I'll go change and get ready for work." He said kind of kicking her out.. but nicely. He had to change.. he needed the money.

Smiling as she walks out of Hectors tent Nala thinks that the day is going to be a good day. She didn't even bother to yell at Liam for stealing from one of her stashes. She walked happily to her tent and looks around for her aprintice, sighing she knows the boy will show up for his lessons after breakfast or there will be hell to pay. Nala bends down and digs through her trunk and pulls out an outfit, leaving her feet bare she practically floats out of her tent and to the food tent.

Ke'ai didn't mean to ran from practice, he just had an overwhelming emotion that he had no idea where it came from. He needed to cool off because he didn't want to end up angering Nala or just blowing up for no reason. He sighed as he got up from the corner he curled up in and made his way back to the tent he and Nala pretty much use. Still feeling depressed, he rummaged through his own trunk. He went under most of his clothes and found the hidden clothing he kept. He ran his hands over the silky surface and over the bumps of the pearls. He whipped his head around the tent. When he deemed that no one was looking, he picked up the flower outfit and ran behind his changing screen, hurrying the outfit on. He set his glasses aside as he changed his clothes. Hopefully, Nala won't run into him in here. She's never really seen him the these clothes, but she knew, but still. He didn't want her seeing him. That would lead to teasing...he doesn't like to be teased, especially with this embarrassing habit he has. When he finished his changing, he put his glasses back on and grabbed for the pearl barrette in his trunk, putting his bangs to the side with the barrette. He blushed to himself before slipping his slippers on and sat next to his trunk, leaning onto it. He though about his training and then his habit. Before he knew it, he had an idea. He smiled nervously before his stomach growled. He was nervous, but he needed to get over it. He stood up and nodded to himself before heading out of the tent, making his way to the food tent. He saw Nala up ahead and called out to her.

"N-Nala!"

Ke'ai blushed again, pushing his glasses up. He was nervous, but at least she wasn't teasing about his outfit...yet. He bowed to her in respect. "I-I'm sorry...! I-I had...had a, I g-guess, a meltdown, you would call..." He didn't meet her in the eye, still a bit nervous. "I-I'm ready for whatever training...!" He bowed again and he felt confident for a second.

Ke'ai couldn't really comprehend what Nala said. Taken advantage of? He only nodded weakly before his face fell. Three wallets? Oh, man... "Okay..." He did a half bow before he walked around Nala and into the food tent. Well, this is going to be interesting and not fun at all.
