Fourteenth || Fourteenth has no specific meaning, though harbors great significance to his forgotten past, of course this is unbeknownst to him. His Family calls him Fourth; since pronouncing his full name takes longer. He finds having a name with no real meaning comforting and tolerable, rather than being given a name, which would give him any unnecessary depth.

| Description |
Measuring slightly taller than the average man, Fourth has grown to stand at six feet exactly. While he may be taller than average, the sin's girth is smaller than average giving him a lanky appearance that deceives those who doubt his durability. And while he may only have lean muscle, the compact nature of his strength allows him to retain an agile quality in his movements, which when combined with his long gait, produce a body type that maximizes the human figure's potential for fast movement and reflexive action.

Fourth's length is balanced out by rather delicate facial features. Thin lips, a small nose, and sharp grey and crimson-colored eyes, are proportionally spaced. A peculiar red birthmark adorns his left eye, sometimes, he can be found unconsciously tracing the line of it with a finger, a faint grimace on his face as though it pains him somehow. His left arm is quite unique, as every now and than he replaces it with another arm, usual from a fallen victim. Most of the time the appearance of said arm is dark, with smooth skin, fingernails shaded black; a strange arrow-shaped marking is formed on the top of the hand. Along with multiply other tattoos covering his left shoulder.

Wavy, white-colored hair occasionally cover his eyes depending on whether or not Fourth's bangs are held by a hairband, his uneven bangs usually extending further than just past his eyes. The length of said hair is longer in the back and reach the bottom of his neck. The sides are slightly longer than the bangs, though not thick enough to hide his ears. These dainty features, while perhaps lacking in masculinity, can be found attractive by those who are drawn towards such characteristics. To others however, Fourth's face may appear androgynous although his body is most certainly male, as shown by his broad shoulders and thin hips.

Fourth possesses pale skin that looks likely to burn if he were exposed to the sun for a considerable amount of time, note this has been proven wrong as Fourth has bathed under the sun for a considerably lengthy amount of time, and has yet to acquire any burns. Fourth wears clothing that expose his arms. His main attire consists of a black sleeveless turtleneck shirt with a tight-fitted collar. The shirt is slim-fit in design, which allows Arashi to retain body heat and move flexibly without interruption or distraction from the fabric. Fourth's attire often reveal his ghastly scars, which cover the majority of his back; that are heavily marred with scars. The rest of his body, most often in various places, harbor stitch-like markings representing the areas of his artificial limbs. The most notice scar is the one that goes along the right side of his chest.

MENTALITY

| Power |
Consumptive Biological Regeneration || The power to regenerate any part of the body by devouring a similar part from a victim. | This power allows Fourth to survive virtually any injury or even old age by replenishing his deteriorated body by feeding on humans and/or animals for replacement parts. He is also able to transform the body part to appear the same as the previous one, though this only works with his Left arm and Left Eye. Though it seems simple enough, many complications come with this ability. One, only certain parts of his body are able to regenerate: Left arm, Left Eye, Right Chest, Right Leg, parts of his Back, lungs, heart, brain, and non-serious organs. Two, Fourth must literally devour the body-part or organ in which he needs. Three, Fourth is limited to how many parts he can regenerate at a time. Four, diseased or damaged body-parts can and will harm Fourth if consumed. Fifth, he is limited to the amount of time he can keep the particular body-part and/or organ, meaning he must replace it. Six, if the body-part and/or organ is a vital part of his body, for example the heart, extreme pain will follow as he must adapt to the new organ, which usual causes Fourth to hide in his home, until the pain passes.

Connective Tissue Manipulation || The ability to manipulate connective tissue of the bodies of oneself. | Fourth has complete control over the connective tissues on his body, allowing him to freely alter and manipulate them. In addition of supporting, connecting and separating different types of tissues and organs, connective tissues act as storage of energy, protection of organs and providing the structural framework for the body. (This ability doesn't work on his Left Eye or Left Arm). Once again Fourth is greatly limited. One, he has a limit to how many tissues he can connect at a time. Second, takes longer to heal than a regular wound. Third, opening connective tissues will expose weak points. Four, the bigger the injury to more energy he must use. Large amounts of energy used causes him to sleep for about a whole day if not longer. Fifth, just like his other ability he must replace the item after a certain time.

Limb Reattachment || The power to reattach one's severed limbs. | This shouldn't be confused with Connective Tissue Manipulation as they are two separate powers. Limb reattachment is a quicker and less threatening way for Fourth to replenish his limbs. He is able to reattach any severed or cut off limb from his body back to the original location. For this ability to work, he must recover the exact limb and hold it to the exact spot from where it was removed. Prolong separation leads to the closing of the wound, which makes it impossible for Fourth to reattach the limb. This power only works with limbs, no organs.

Matter Ingestion || The power to consume and digest any substance without injury. | Fourth can eat anything without harmful effects regardless of the form of the substance. Size, shape, solid, liquid or gas he can eat it without harming his stomach or mouth. He is also capable of storing matter within his body and spitting it back out when the moment calls for it.

Paralysis Teeth/Nails | The power to possess razor-sharp teeth and nails with natural venom on/in them, that causes paralysis inducement qualities, rendering the victim immobile. | Fourth possesses abnormally sharp teeth and nails that are coated with or secrete natural venom, which can extend to the victim when they are either bitten by his teeth, or cut by his nails. The venom causes paralysis inducement to the victim immobilizing the target completely or partially, causing them to be left without movement and sensation. Fourth uses this ability when he is hunting a large prey, or a stubborn human. Of course, the venom takes time to fully disable the victim, and at times people can be unaffected by it, or the venom can wear off quickly, letting the victim escape, this depends on the target's strength.


Inability to feel Pain || The ability to feel absolutely no pain. | Fourth can block pain at will, at times is incapable of feeling pain, and is highly resistant to physical pain of any kind, allowing him to think clearly and continue to move despite grievous injury, which would disable a normal person. Though he has the ability to feel no pain, it causes problems for him. He can't choose when to turn the ability off, so Fourth could be fighting, and unconsciously gets an injury without even knowing, until the ability chooses to switch off. Because he doesn't know when he actually gets hurt, since his ability turns on at random times also, the power can leave Fourth ignorant to crippling injuries, which may disable him without him even knowing why. This ability only applies to physical injures, and doesn't take away the pain permanently, as when the ability is off, Fourth can feel pain.

Healing Coma || The ability to enter a protective state in order to heal any injuries. | Fourth can enter a protective state, similar to a coma or Vegetative state, to regenerate and restore any injuries he may have sustained. Fourth can't be hurt when in this state and, when he wakes up, he will be a the peak of his health. During this period Fourth must sleep up to at least an hour or so, for the ability to take full affect, life-threatening injures take longer to heal. At this time Fourth is completely vulnerable to attacks, and even though he can't sustain injures, if the attack was aimed at his full body he could be destroyed before he can wake up.

MENTALITY PART TWO

| Oddities |
He is unable to feel any kind of pain, this is partly due to the fact he is dead. Not that he really minds, though. Another one is he constantly stares at the sky, during the day and at night, he usually trips over things and hurts himself whenever he goes somewhere, but due to his problem he is unable to feel the pain. Fourth is able to eat anything and everything, to the point he has no problem digesting the substance. A rather creepy oddity of Fourth is that he has a habit of humming, while he eats. This habit is so extreme that he will start humming while trying to catch his food. He realizes that this causes fear to spread throughout the victim's body much faster, making them smell and taste even better. He also enjoys giving nicknames to his Family, as a sense of endearment.

| Personality |
Being a Sin, which automatically causes one to picture a villainous and corrupted being, Fourth is anything but that, well kind of. He is a bit of a ditz, viewing Infinity as a big wonderland, which he can play around in, and is rather frivolous in the sense that he never seems to take anything seriously. Fourth is playful, having the ability to laugh and smile with great ease, even in life-threatening situations as he enjoys the thrill of his life being on the line. It makes him feel alive, whenever he is on the brick of death, since he always seems to have this sense of emptiness, which he tries to fill by eating.

Fourth is a person or creature who needs to kept entertained at all times, or he gets bored, causing him to get rid of the item that bores him be it Human, Spirit, Animal, or etc, since he sees no difference in value. He has a notably short attention span, being easily excited and quickly distracted by new things, usually interrupting important conversations when he spots something interesting.

Despite Fourth's friendly nature, he holds no qualms about getting rid of anyone he believes to be a threat to him: his playful and innocent demeanor quickly seeming quite sinister to those who threaten the people he loves. When in this state Fourth doesn't truly worry about the physical or well-being of the people around him, be them children, woman, or men. Of course it all depends on his mood. He can also be quite dispassionate when speaking to those he despises or feels don't deserve his respect. Unlike the attitude he shows towards most of his Siblings, giving the ones he likes nicknames as a form of his endearment. During the moments he is around people he dislikes, he has been said to be extremely rude, holding a empty smile, and a cruel voice.

Now, under normal circumstances, Fourth is docile not very threatening at first glance. Though during periods of starvation, which are most often caused by the hole inside of him growing wider, or the scent of large pools of fresh blood. He is easily prone to bouts of frenzy in which he uncontrollably tries to eat whatever crosses his path. Surprisingly he is able to keep a part of his more sweeter personality, which as a result, causes him to frequently ask the victim if he can eat them beforehand, though he ends up eating them even if they say no. Though during this time he can eat actual food, but he prefers living prey. He even mentions to his fellow Sins, that he prefers eating those who smell of fear and anguish. Putting aside Fourth's hunger-fueled moments of frenzy, overall he is very childlike and kind person, easily demonstrating great love for certain people. But, because of his apparent innocence and tendency to act the fool he is often viewed by others as unpredictable and dangerous.

BACKGROUND PART TWO


| Personal History |
This a story from long ago, rather it is true or not is up to you. Two children were born on the same day, twin boys. Though they were both the same age, one twin was born a second later than the first. As this twin appeared he was extremely ill and weak hearted. Abandoning the eldest son, they took care of the youngest, pampering him and tending to his needs, while the eldest laid in the corner alone.

Growing up the twins did everything together went to school, played, ate, bathed, and slept with one another. The youngest adored the eldest with a great passion, though no matter how hard the eldest tried his heart could never fully except the youngest child. As the youngest had something which the eldest did not, fulfillment. The eldest craved something to fill the emptiness he felt inside.

This same pattern continued as the twins grew older, the youngest still being pampered as the eldest was neglected. During this period of time the two twins had became distant, well, the eldest had became distant, while the youngest still held their childish innocence toward the older brother. At this moment the eldest had developed a hole inside him, which grew with every single day. It came to the point he could no longer be near his little brother as he felt a sudden surge of agony shot through him.

It wasn't until they both turned Fourteen that the eldest realized their was something gravely wrong with him. It was a rainy day, as the eldest had abandoned the birthday party, which was being held for them, mostly the youngest. As the eldest walked among the fields the youngest had followed him, with great desperation. Angered the eldest lashed out at him, but to his anguish the youngest pestered farther. The hole inside him grew wider, and he couldn't help but stare heavily at the younger child. It seemed like a blink, or maybe it was longer, but it didn't matter as what had been done had happened. Hands covered in fresh blood he ran away from his home, away from the pain, away from the cause of his misery.

The rest of this story is unclear or has been lost in centuries past. As the author had sold his soul, body, and memories to the Devil in exchange for the power to feel the hole inside him. He is a Deadly Sin, Gluttony, and lives with his Family happily. If the story told was true the author knows not. He no longer knows of his past, nor does he truthful care. He just wishes to satisfy his hunger. But in the back of his mind, in the parts left untouched, he can feel something surfacing, something that could drive him to the brick of insanity if let loose.





Image

OTHER
"I don't know when it started...but I can feel a hole inside me...growing wider..."
He wants to satisfy the growing hole inside of him. He wishes to consume all of Infinity, even if it means he will fall into corruption. His mind nor body hold any value to him if it means he can get rid of the anguish he feels inside. Being in Infinity allows this feeling to subdue, believing that if he stays here, he won't be consumed by the hole.

❝In the deepest parts of my memories...I can see a glimpse...of a child with a false smile.❞

Location: Underground the Graveyard of Fear
Time of Day: Morning (5:25 A.M.)
Three hours prior to the Gateway opening



"Almost show time~!" Whisper purred out, opening a rather small coffin that laid on a rotten wood table, a satin white sheet covering it just to keep the coffin 'safe'. He had periodically dug this coffin up throughout the years, almost as if he could never part with it. Whisper's smirk was ear to ear at this point as he stroked a large orb, it's insides nothing put pure black. A void of pure nothingness. His mission, his plan, was finally coming together perfectly. After thousands, millions of years, finally he had found the perfect subjects to bring to "Infinity". Ones that, no matter what they did, would eventually aid him in hi venture to gather all one-hundred and fifty pages. No matter if three were the only ones needed, his master desired all of them.

Whisper, since the moment the original four friends had even stepped foot in the realm, had always been watching. Always observing them for the slightest of flaws, cracks, as one would say. He needed ways to hit home, to make them stay. He found those ways, and within only about maybe a million or so years, maybe even less, all seven sins had finally gathered. Now the real show would begin.

As for the virtues, well, he had no apparent control over them. He simply was making an educated guess that they would just so happen to show up within three hours from now. Then, his beloved "puppets" would do his dirty work for him, with a little persuasion that those tiny, pathetic virtues would be their ultimate downfall without all the pages.

Oh how devious! Yes, absolutely devious! Once that was done, all he would have to do would b-

Crap, where had he put those papers? He needed to send those papers off to each one of the sins!... And Kouji. He couldn't forget Kouji. "Goddamn it..." Whisper hissed, gathering the papers he had put together about each Virtue, mainly just describing where each virtue would be located once the gateway would open. What they chose to do within the next hours or so would be up to them. Knowing Kouji, he'd mostly be on top of things, try and locate the largest group of his fellow 'comrades'... But wouldn't that ruin the fun of this all? Scribbling one more thing down on Kouji's paper he'd be receiving, it would direct him to the Ocean District. Now he was having fun. He grinned as he began rolling each separate piece of paper into a neat looking scroll, tied with a ribbon.

Chuckling, Whisper tightly gripped each copy, he climbed the wooden ladder, pushing the tombstone that hide the entrance to his lair aside, climbing out as he pushed it back into place, sealing that entrance. Without even a word, there were eight crows in front of him, each one in a matter of minutes having the ribbon tied around their necks and taking off to their designed targets.



Letter to the Sins

Hey! I thought you should know, but the Gateway is going to be opening soon. The rest of the virtues are coming. Perhaps, you would like their locations listed below? Good luck finding them before the others! Oh, and I'll send the virtue that has been right under your nose the entire time to one of you as well.

Humility - Red-light district
Chastity - Black Market
Kindness - Never Ending Winter
Charity - Never Ending Summer

Whisper




Letter to Kouji

If their haven't arrived an hour from when you get this letter, then there might of been a slight complication, so you may need to go after them... Good luck Kouji, you'll need it for this. Here is the locations incase someone doesn't show up...

Temperance - Forest
Patients - Business/Residential
Humility - Red-light district
Chastity - Black Market
Kindness - Never Ending Winter

Location: The Hideout
Time: 6:00AM


The sun slowly began to inch above the thick foliage, shedding beams of light upon the skies of I n f i n i t y. While the rest of the Forest Region slept, Kouji had been awake for hours on end, anticipating the task that this day was to bring. Managing to linger off for a couple of hours, he finally submitted to his anxiety and summoned his guardians. It was time to discuss their strategy for the coming endeavor.

Today was the day that Kouji would form a pact with the Demi-God Heracles.

Spirit Gods, unlike regular spirits of I n f i n i t y, were spirits of both limitless potential and crippling inhibitions. Spirits who undergo a process called "Enlightening" are eligible to increase their power and mana tenfold, becoming Gods among their kind. However, the power an Enlightened achieves is attached with a price; specifically, the spirit is bound to contribute their most prominent trait in some beneficial way to the world. Their power binds them to servitude, and they are no longer free to pursue matters that concern themselves (including matters of politics and rule, hence why they are typically not seen out and about.)

Because forming a pact with a summoner is indeed a service, Gods (and 'Demi-Gods' alike, as Heracles did not complete his Enlightening entirely,) are able to pact and travel with Summoners. These enlightened spirits, however, are typically wary of who they ally themselves with, and typically issue strenuous tests to those seeking their power. Heracles, hailed far and wide for his strength, would most likely administer a test of valor and strength through combat.

Kouji sat in the hideout, discussing the matter with his Geri, Freki, and Hero. Having served a Spirit God, the Wolf Guardians were quite knowledgeable of matters of Gods and the tests they administer, and had proved to be quite insightful.

"Seems like a decent plan," Kouji grunted, his fatigue finally hitting him like a brick wall, "A little straightforward for you, Frek, but it doesn't sound like this Heracles is one for mind games either."

"That meat head respects a head-on fight, Pup, so that's what we should give him." Freki chided, scratching his chin with his claw, "Keep the frog and the minstrel under lock and key- without their protection, he'll knock you out with one clean hit. Your pet, Geri and I will draw as much of his attention as we can, but it will be on you to lay as many shots on him as you can before we're out."

"Gotcha." Kouji responded, "You guys cool with this?"

Hero nodded, "Though not much of a plan per se, it would seem that our options are limited. We proceed as Freki dictates."

"Don't look at me," Geri frowned, "Frek's always been the brains. I just hit things with my sword."

Kouji nodded, pleased that he had finally gotten to talk about the event. This did little to soothe his nerves about crossing blades with another God, but it was good to at least have some semblance of a plan put together. For all of Freki's misgivings about forming a pact with him, he was surprised to find how much of an asset he had been during this past year.

He stood up, patting Jiraiya gently on his tummy. The old frog wasn't much for meetings of any sort, and he typically proved more than able to adapt to whatever plan the others had made later on, so it really wasn't a battle worth fighting.

Before the group could mobilize, however, Orfeo strode into the meeting room with far more grace than any normal person should this early. With his strumming hand, he presented a peculiar piece of paper.

"Forgive me, Young Master, but I'm afraid your engagement with the Oaf-King Heracles will have to be postponed." the butler bowed, "A letter to you from Whisper, sir."

Quickly swiping the paper from his butler, Kouji quickly read and re-read the letter, quite unsure of how to react. Though he had been preparing for his encounter with Heracles for the better part of a week, he was absolutely elated at the prospect of associating with another human again. He tried to contain himself as he allowed the rest of his guardians to read the letter, but he couldn't help but let loose the tiniest of grins.

After reading the letter, all consented that priorities had indeed changed- all save for Jiraiya, who seemed concerned after reading the letter.

"What's wrong, Jiraiya?" Kouji smirked, "Still waking up?"

"If only it were dat, Little One," Jiraiya frowned, "But I wonder if Whisper knows what he's doing? I've lived in de Ocean District all my life, and de air dere usually doesn't agree with humans passing through. Why not pick a place dat won't make ya sick?"

"Ah yes, I too have heard of this affliction, old friend." Orfeo interjected, "But I do believe that this is precisely why Whisper chose this spot to be our point of rendezvous. The poison usually takes a few days to begin to afflict the victim, and even when infected, it will dissipate once the ailed leaves the District."

"He could also be gathering us there to draw less attention to ourselves." Freki chimed, "If you gather at the one place in the world where you wouldn't want to meet, it will be the last place that the Sins check." He paused briefly, "Either that, or it's a trap."

Kouji stroked his chin thoughtfully for a while before responding, "I see what you're saying, Frek. I'm not entirely sure about Whisper myself, but we've known him for the better part of a year now and he hasn't deceived us yet. I say we go to the Ocean District- we need to pass through 'Summer' to get to the Ocean anyway, so we can pick up 'Charity' before we jump train. We'll wait there for a few hours, and if we don't get any shows, we'll leave and find them ourselves. Sound good?"

None had any misgivings at this point- this was what the Summoner and his group of spirits had waited for, and they were prepared both in body and mind. Without a second thought, Kouji recalled his guardians, and made haste for the train station with Hero close at his heels.



Location: The Land of Neverending Summer
Time: 8:20AM


The train ride had been rather uneventful- stepping into the golden shores of Summer was a welcome change of atmosphere from the rustic hideout. Kouji was brimming with anticipation; though certainly not without company, it had been a whole year since Kouji spoke with one of his own kind. It was a bizarre combination of emotions indeed.

"You smell nervous, Kouji," Hero sniffed, "Are you well?"

"Yeah..." Kouji smirked, "It's just...weird. Just a couple of years ago, I was surrounded by other humans. It feels so weird to say that I'm nervous to see one!"

"Weird, but understandable. You've been busy here in this world. I'm sure you miss seeing your own kind."

"Yeah...c'mon Hero, let's see if we can find this first Virtue!"

Time:8:25AM
The gate opens precisely now.

Location: Land of Never-Ending Summer
Time: 8:25


The heat of the never-ending sun was quickly proving to be a bit too much for Kouji. For someone as lithe as the young summoner, he had a peculiar inclination towards colder weather. He had not been in the new district for more than five minutes before having to remove his jacket.

As he wiped his sweaty forehead, he noticed his four-legged companion's nose sniffing uncontrollably.

"What's wrong, boy- erm, Hero?" Kouji inquired, quickly doubling-back on his initial 'pet name.' Even after a year, he still couldn't quite break the habit of talking to Hero as if he was still the same house-dog from Earth.

"Well, 'Master,'" he mocked, flashing Kouji a quick grin, "Nothing is wrong, exactly. I just smell something I haven't smelled in a long time- the smell of another human, fresh from the other side if my nose is still any good..."

Kouji immediately straightened up, unable to contain the sudden jolt of excitement. It was bizarre- he had been preparing himself for this moment for the past year, yet the prospect still hit him like a ton of bricks.

"Hello?"

Fortuitously enough, the source of the long-forgotten scent had found the Summoner and his Guardian, saving Kouji from scouring the city for her.

Trying to remain as approachable as possible, Kouji slowly walked over to the little girl. Purely out of habit, Kouji scanned her up and down, looking for any signs of claws, wings, or other Spiritly...things. He quickly glanced over at Hero, who nodded in approval.

Kouji cleared his throat, "Yeah, sorry about that. After being here for a year, you've gotta make sure new acquaintances don't have hidden arms, or claws, or other nasty things..."

He could see that this meeting was quickly going south, judging by the look of extreme bewilderment upon her face. Still, if she indeed was part of the prophesied Virtues, he would have to quickly gain her trust.

"Uh, but it's obvious that you're a human- like me!" Kouji smiled, trying to make that statement sound as normal as possible, "My name's Kouji, and I'm here to help!"

"And I am Hero," the dog interjected, bowing before Jenna, "It will be a pleasure to work alongside you."

"Oh yeah- my dog talks." Kouji sighed, hoping to have eased her into the 'Spirit-ness' a little slower than what was currently happening,"You get used to this kind've stuff once you've been here as long as I have...so uh, what's your name?"

Location: The Ocean Sector
Time of Day: Morning (9:00 A.M.)





Stretching his back, Whisper cracked his neck as he began to make his way to the manor of where Gluttony, or rather, Fourteenth, resided. In his left hand, a bag of sweets as he began to have a slight... skip in his step. Fifty pages were already in Whisper's possession, and people had a tendency to collect mass amounts at once, so he made it part of his 'duty' to check on the Sins for any of these little pages.

Whisper knew damn well that Kouji had stopped first in the Never Ending Summer for the best 'effective' way of gathering some of the Virtues. Hopefully Avis would be able to capture them and bring them to the Meeting House. After all, it might just work better if the little 'Goody goodies' had a reason to hate the Big Bad Wolves.

"Oi! Fourth! You in there?" Whisper called out, knocking on the manor doors. "I have food! I figured we could wait together!" Whisper's grin was practically ear to ear as he rocked on his heels, almost looking like a bit of a madman. Oh this would be great deals of fun, if Avis wasn't able to even find the two virtues.

Of course, there could be quite a few issues that would be bound to pop up, but surely nothing Whisper couldn't handle with the proper manipulation, right?

Song of the Day | Amelie- Comptine D' un Autre Ete





Fourth played a beautiful tune, engulfing the whole room in its hypnotizing sound. The peaceful music could be heard throughout the Sin's manor, causing the workers and servants to pause in awe. The room which Fourth spent most of his time in, wasn't very big, nor was there very much inside this room. The design was quite simple and didn't call for extra extravagance, as it would only go to waste. In this white room, there was only a mirror covered wall, a black piano, and a black piano bench. Nothing more, nothing less.

During the mornings was the time Fourth awoke from his slumber, and began to play his piano. Maybe it was the sound of the keys or the way his hands gently glided across the piano. But Fourth always enjoyed playing his piano in the mornings. It was the one time, he never felt hungry or desired to eat. He could feel free. As if to wake him from his peaceful trance, Teez flew in at full speed toward Fourth.

Fourth froze his hands, his expression was dark and bone-chilling. Quickly he replaced it with a bright smile, facing Teez. "Good morning Teez! What has you all excited? You usually sleep until eight or at most nine." Fourth's pervious expression could no longer be seen on his features. It was now replaced by a carefree expression, and a curious stare.

Teez flew around Fourth's head in urgency,"Guest...Guest...Guest..." Teez spoke in a high pitched tone, one that would suit a child. Teez had recently learned to speak words, of course the little one was still rusty. So he could only speak so fast and say so many words at a time. Fourth found this hilarious, so he would always play around with Teez to make him speak more. But glancing at Teez's mannerism, the guest most be important.

Rising from his seat, Fourth twirled, facing the door. "Okay, Teez!~ Lead the way!" Fourth was unnecessarily loud this morning, but he was like this all the time. The word quiet mornings, wasn't in Fourth's vocabulary, or at least after seven forty-five.

Following the zooming creature, Fourth walked with hurried steps. A child-like happiness was painted on his face, eyes beaming with anticipation. Passing multiple of servants he gave each a warm smile, and a childish good morning. Arriving at the destination, Fourth was confronted with a black crown. Its black beady eyes staring into Fourth's different colored orbs. In his vision Fourth spotted a letter tied around the raven's neck. Reaching for the raven Fourth gripped it in his hands. The creature squirmed for freedom. Swopping down Teez spoke,"Four, won't hurt...He won't eat you."

Teez being a creature, most have been the reason, as the crow had calmed down. Taking this opportunity Fourth reached for the letter and released the crow, letting it fly away. "Lord, Pre-morning Breakfast is ready." Quickly Fourteenth's eyes lit up with glee, and he raced to the dining area, dropping the letter on the ground.

"Four! You dropped it! Four, the letter!" Teez grasped the letter with his tail, and zoomed after Fourth. By the time he caught up to Fourth, he was surrounded by a table filled with food. Fourth was so happy, he could barely hear the chefs words, as he tried to explain the food he had prepared. Seeing Fourth was not listening, he bowed toward him. Leaving him alone.

Without any hesitation Fourth began to dine on the meal before him. Hungrily stuffing down the food, as if he hasn't eaten in days. "Fourth! The letter!" Fourth tuned to Teez a piece of bacon frozen midway to his mouth. Glancing at the letter, Fourth's eyes sparkled again, "Oh! I forgot. Thanks Teez!" An innocent grin was spread across Fourth's face, and Teez could only match it happily. Reaching for the letter, Fourth read it carefully.

Fourteenth showed a visible pout as he tapped his fingers on the table. Picking up the letter once more, he glanced through it. It had passed the appointed time, it was obvious that no one would be visiting him at the moment. Letting the letter lay on the now empty table he went into deep thought, his facial expression growing cloudy and intimidating. Teez flew close to Fourth, "Fourth...Teez will play with you." Fourth glanced over at the creature with a smile, reaching toward it, he pulled Teez into a hug.

"You make me feel so much better!" Fake tears ran down his face as him and Teez shared a happy moment, which was interrupted by one of Fourth's many servants. "Lord-", the servant's words got caught in his throat as Fourth sent him a threatening glare, followed by a innocent smile. Still unsure the man spoke,"You have a guest. It seems to be Whisper, Sir. And he has brought snacks."

All that Fourth heard was Whisper and snacks, as he raced toward the entranceway, Teez following close behind. Opening the door, he saw Whisper. A large grin spread across his face; extending his arms outwards, he embraced Whisper in a friendly hug. Followed by Teez who sat on Whisper's shoulder happily.

Of course Fourth was more happy to see the sweets than Whisper, but he probably knew that anyway. Fourth than remembered the letter which Whisper had sent, and looked at him with a pouting expression,"Why isn't anyone here, Whisper? I have been waiting. Thanks to your letter I missed my Mid-Morning breakfast, and was only able to eat my Pre-Morning breakfast."
