“Are all the preparations in place?” Castor inquired, sitting on the couch of Jazzy’s upscale apartment. “If it wasn’t for Mr. Prince and company's escapades, leaving Flevance would’ve been simple. The marines are definitely not going to let you just set sail now.” the woman responded, sighing as she’d scan a map of Flevance’s layout for the quickest path to the port.

“We could just cut a way through.” Newport declared smirking.

Nodding in approval, “Agreed.”

Slamming her hand against the table, “We will ‘not’ be cutting our way through anything moving forward. This crew’s been too reckless of late. I get that you and Bloody Port over there have spent the last few years locked in a bubble but the World Government isn’t just going to sit by idle, and let a non-World Government nation be ruled by a pirate… Let alone someone with Castor’s track record. The moment we get to Paradise, we’ll be seen as top targets by Bounty Hunters and Marines alike.”

“She’s right. Escaping isn’t the problem… It’s what comes next. Obviously from here the Log’s pointing towards Twin Cape. Knowing the movements in the world as of late, nipping you in the bud would be the best course of action… However, the Blues isn’t exactly high on the marines priority. It’s not good to be too paranoid, Miss Jazzy.” Duke commented.

“The scrap metal is talking again… sinistre.” Jazzy thought, shivering slightly at the hovering tin-intellectual.

Digging his wax out of his ear, “Fine, I’ll do it your way, Jazzy. What do you suggest?” Castor inquired.

A sinister smile creeped over the woman’s face at the Captain’s inquiry, a smile which sent thrills down the spine of all the parties involved.




Port/Docks of Flevance


Murmurs of Castor stow-away within the White Walls of Flevance spread among the local marines and bounty hunters alike. Surrounding the pubs, a fleet of antagonists wait for the escape of the pirate, whose ominous vessel magically appeared two days prior in the port. Some hid themselves in the haunted vessels chambers, others surrounded the nearby pubs, the marines blocked off the coasts with vessels, all under the instruction of Rear Admiral Clevis’ command.

"Ugly old man." Alexi muttered under her breath as she marched angrily across the snow white roads of Flevance. Blind to her surroundings, she failed to notice the odd looks she was receiving from those she passed. Not that Alexi would care much as she was currently fuming from the audacity of one of the locals. "That damned bastard! Who does he think he is?!” The alleged bounty hunter’s knuckles turned bone white in anger under her clenched fists. “He's definitely blind. Gotta be!" Her fists shook in rage. “If I ever see him again… I swear he’ll regret it.” This caused the crowd to move away from the woman as if she were someone contagious. Not that Alexi noticed it either.

This went on for quite a while until Alexi’s stomach growled in protest. It was a sound that brought her back into reality and, as a result, led her to finally take notice of the odd looks of uncertainty from those around her. Alexi let a tiny frown slip as she glanced around. She couldn’t see anything unusual to warrant such looks. That was until she noticed that  the looks were aimed at her. Perhaps, Alexi concluded in her mind, they were simply stunned by her beauty and charm. It was understandable, Alexi thought as she nodded to herself. Even she would have a hard time believing that someone such as herself existed. If only she could show the crowd that she was indeed approachable.

With that thought in mind, Alexi honored the crowd with her biggest and brightest smile. After all, any kind of attention was good attention. However, contrary to how she had assumed their reaction would go, those around her simply shook their heads and ignored the aspiring star completely. It seemed like none shared her sentiment as they simply walked towards the other direction and went on with their day. Alexi blinked in shock before a wave of irritation washed over her. Anger flashed across her lime green eyes as she stormed off to the nearest tavern. Food, she thought in an effort to convince herself, would get her mind off of things. Yet, one thing the supposed bounty hunter was certain of, however, was that she really hated Flevance.

Stupid people,” Alexi, once again, muttered to herself as she walked into the tavern. “They obviously have no idea who I am.” She took a seat by the entrance and signaled for the server semi-aggressively. “If they knew, I’m sure they wouldn’t be treating me like this.” Alexi, after all, was an up and coming star. If only those around her could see it, too. Unfortunately for her, it seemed as if Flevance was a place for people of poor tastes. It was the only way things made sense considering, especially, with how they disregarded her attempts to grace them with her presence. Not to mention the look of irritation the bartender had shot her simply a mere second ago.

Alexi glowered at the bartender just as the server came up to take her order. The burly man simply rolled his eyes which caused the self-proclaimed bounty hunter to shoot him a cocky grin of victory. With newfound confidence and a sassy demeanor, Alexi tossed her hair to the side as she turned her attention to the server. She gave him a big grin as she proceeded with her order. It didn’t take long for the food to arrive. However, just as she was about to take a bite, a group of rowdy Marines came barging in. Alexi scowled as the men sat just across from her and loudly began to joke and laugh. The woman attempted to ignore them just until they mentioned something that caught her attention. Money, and a lot of it.

Alexi bit into her food as she listened in on the men’s conversation. “Bet the Capt’n’s gonna catch that Castor bastard.” The other men nodded in agreement while Alexi sipped on her water. “Hundreds of millions of belli, too!” Alexi choked but, to her luck, the three men simply ignored her. “Not to mention that we closed off the port. Ain’t no way he’s getting outta here,” another chimed in. “Just wait until I get promoted! I’ll treat you all to lunch!” Alexi’s mind raced. Hundreds of millions of… BELLI?! Her eyes shone brightly. If she managed to catch that man, Castor, then that meant she was set for life. She’d also become an overnight sensation and finally make her mark. She wolfed down the rest of her food. Time to get searching.

Sanpaku (산빠쿠)

“Dire moins capitaine, je vais gérer cette situation” (Say less Captain, I shall handle the situation.)


In a flurry of words coded in a language Castor couldn’t understand, the white haired madam went scuttling away in glee.

Castor, Duke and Newport all stared at each other, puzzled about what in the world the Fashionista could be up to this time, however, the uneasy feeling in their guts told them that it wouldn’t be something they’d be inclined to participate in easily.

As such, Jazzy’s position as a lead fashion icon in Flevance had been put into motion. Within a matter of hours, Den Den Mushi calls were casted to all the richest and most gorgeous mademoiselle's in the land, to gather at her shop for one last 'gathering'. The barter was simple, she’d offer them any outfit they’d want for free, and they agreed to fulfill her final whim  before closing her boutique forever.

Traffic began to form in front of Jazzy’s storefront, as fifty or so women with immense beauty and poise left the high society passerbys gawking in confusion. Was some gala or private party about to take place that they hadn’t heard about?

Exiting the apartment complex, Jazzy rushed from the loft, to her storefront, which was just about two minutes walking distance away. With a dab of jazz, no pun intended, and pizzazz, the woman greeted the models with kisses on their cheeks, alternating both sides for a customary greeting.

Clapping her hands, she’d shuffle through the crowd, opening the doors to the store, letting in the models one by one into the storefront, organising their positions in the store by dress size, height and skin tone. Within seconds, the storefront was filled with gorgeous models, actresses, noble women and career women, who’d purchased dresses from the Fashionista throughout the years.

“Goodnight, ladies!” Jazzy commanded, bringing an immediate lull to the chatter amongst the flock of debutants. “As I’ve been advertising for the last few weeks or so, I’ll be closing my storefront here on Flevance in order to pursue my dreams of taking my eye for fashion world-wide.”

The women cried and grumbled, many wanting to keep the fashion snob for themselves.

“Cry not my lovies. I’ll have international shipping sorted once I get my feet rooted with the right investors. You will still be able to order via mail, my beauts. However, I digress. Now to the matter at hand!”

Slamming her hand on the counter of the storefront's check-out desk, “I’m going out with a bang! Une femme ne vaut que sa derniere tenue!” (A woman is only as good as her last outfit!)

With her plans set in place, a roar boomed from within the white storefront walls, leaking into the streets.




Several hours later, a knock at Jazzy’s apartment door peaked the ears of the Pirate Captain. Grabbing onto his weapon, Castor approached the door in a stealth manner but the figure behind the door didn’t match up with Jazzy’s at all.

Sliding the apartment door open, a gorgeous lady dressed in a flowing white dress with cut from the ankle up greeted the Captain with a broad smile.

“Wow. He’s so handsome.” the model thought to herself, as the dazed pirate Captain scanned the woman from head to toe. Castor wasn’t exactly sure what character he wanted to assume this time, his street merchant gimmick wouldn’t exactly fit the setting of the current mood. Instead, he’d opted for the knightly approach, as he’d been literally playing it for the last year or so.

Grabbing the woman by the wrist, Castor bowed slightly. “How may I help you, mi lady?”

If steam could’ve shot from the woman’s ears in a cartoonish manner, at this stage, the whole hallway would’ve been completely cloudy. “I-U-Um… Miss Couturier told me to collect the male models for her showcase from her apartment. I’m here to be your guide, sir!” the woman blurted out in an extremely flustered and formal manner.

“Eh. Models?”

Bewildered, the pretty faced MC was followed by the ruffian helmsman and the giant red suited engineer, the contrast between their aesthetics was an immense shock to the budding model. It’d make Castor look more like the young crime boss of a mafia family of sorts, or the woman just read too many romance novels of that variety, who knew?

Taking the back-alleyway towards the shop’s side door, the trio were escorted into a room filled with women dressed in all white outfits, of all shapes and sizes. The scene was a catalogue shot from any Coo Fashion Weekly centerpiece, leaving Newport’s mind drowning in a world of lecherous thoughts.

Whistling effortlessly, “Orgy-” Newport’s crass comment was met with several stray rounds from Jazzy’s pistol, as if she’d anticipated what the old hoot’s sick mind would’ve wandered to.

“Ladies! Get them fitted! Show-time at ten!” Jazzy barked.

The room once filled with smiling feminine beauties transformed into a pack of grinning she-wolves. Seemingly glaring red-eyes locked onto their targets, and in a matter of seconds, Castor (still lost in translation), Newport (who didn’t resist a bit) and Duke (whose mechanical suit was robbed of its traditional Japanese wear) were stripped naked, and suited in their outfits for the evening.

“Magnifique!”

‘Ey. What about ‘em bounty hunters?” The third grumbled in irritation as he side-eyed the room. Perhaps, all in an effort to act inconspicuously, Alexi immediately took a big gulp of her drink. Not that there was a need to seeing as none of the Marines paid her any mind. “Ya think they’ll mess with our plans?” The other two kept quiet as they mulled over their thoughts.

Taking a big swig of his liquor, the second shook his head in disagreement. “Naw. There’s no way they’ll get an upper hand on us. We’re professionals.” The first immediately nodded. “Yer right. Ain’t no way Capt’n’s gonna let us down.” Both of his companions nodded firmly. Their Captain was the best of the best. At least, in their own humble opinion.

However, at this point in time, Alexi was long gone and out into the streets with a bounty poster on hand. All she had heard of from the three men, after all, was how much she was going to cash in on if she managed to snag the guy. Sure, it seemed that many were after the Castor fella but she was sure luck was on her side. She was sure to strike it big.

With a skip to her step, Alexi wandered the now surprisingly crowded streets of Flevance. It seemed that in the time she had spent eavesdropping on the men and getting her room paid for, a large event was going underway. Curious, the alleged bounty hunter drew nearer to the crowd. “Do you have any idea of what’s going on?” She asked no one in particular.

The woman on her left nodded excitedly. “YES! Madame Jazzy’s fashion show is today!” Alexi nodded as if she understood what the fuss was about. The woman on her right joined the conversation with her own tidbit. “It’s her final day in Flevance today, too. I’m soooooo glad I managed to snag a few of her pieces before she left.” It was thus made clear that the Madame was quite a big deal.

The women both squealed and looked at Alexi expectantly. This sudden change caught the bounty hunter off guard so much so that she had to admit she had no idea who the Madame was. “I uh… I’ve never heard of her,” Alexi said. However, she managed to insert confidence into her words. “But, if she’s that well-known, I’m sure I’ll be working with her soon. I’m a model, after all.

Both women stared blankly at Alexi before one of them let out an unconcealed snicker. The other one simply scoffed as if to follow suit. They proceeded in taking their time to size her up before turning their attention back to the make-shift runway. It seemed as if their excitement had disappeared along with their interest in the self-acclaimed model.

Angered by their blatant disrespect, Alexi decided to move up towards the start of the runway. It truly seemed as if her stay at Flevance was going from bad to worse. However, she would make sure to at least enjoy high fashion before leaving the godforsaken city and staking out the infamous pirate. Thus, the supposed bounty hunter pushed and shoved her way until she reached her chosen destination and stood right at the rails.

Sanpaku (산빠쿠)

Strutting down the pale white roads, the clicking of Jazzy’s stilettos signaled the arrival of the diva. Her hair put up into a ponytail, a long tight fitting dress to accentuate her figure and bright pink lip gloss were the highlights of her look.

The streets of Flevance became her runway, and the gawking eyes didn’t waver the woman’s confidence; if anything, they became the added fuel needed for her walk to be a guaranteed fierce display.

Striped white cotton fabric stitched to perfection, with added silver rings, twenty-two in total, with no real reason to the count other than style. Her crimson-red eyes acted as a beacon, similar to that of the siren’s call to sailor’s at night, her presence alone captivated everyone in attendance, marine, bounty hunter, civilian and even those aligned to the life of piracy.

Reaching the start of the runway, the woman paused dramatically, curtseying to the audience before inhaling deeply. Almost like a megaphone, the woman’s voice rang throughout the streets of Flevance’s port, commencing the beginning of the show.

“Good Evening - Cuties.”

The woman shouted, winking effortlessly, bewitching the hearts of man and woman alike.

Scanning the audience, Jazzy noted the positions of all of the lawful officials amongst the crowd. However, her character was broken momentarily, as her eye for budding talent overrode any plan as long as fashion called out to her.

Five foot and a few, great figure, bubblegum pink hair, fashionable wear and intriguing green highlights mesmerized the fashionista. Turning towards the stranger, Jazzy would give two snaps of her finger, and from the seeming shadows, her workers would abduct the woman, taking her to the dressing room to be fitted.

Reassuming the task at hand, “This evening’s show is brought to you by my boutique’s final hooray. I’ve gotten nothing but love from the people of Flevance over the years… and it saddens me to leave but an interesting prospect has arrived in my lap. I have stars to develop! My clothes call for the high seas!” Jazzy blurted out erratically.

Behavior common to the Prima Donnas’ personality type.

“I present to you my life’s work up to this point! Every piece you see will be up for auction. The women wearing them of course will be the ones you’ll hackle with but I will say that anything shown here begins at the 10,000,000 Berri price point, so please do keep up with the standard bidding rate, lovies.”

Meanwhile in the back room, the models went to work on a kidnapped crowd prospect.

“Lady Jazzy picked her out of the attendees. Consider yerself luckily darling. The last gal she selected ended up becoming a well known face in the theatre scene.” one of the stylists raved, as they continued to prep the other ladies for the show ahead.

“You’re gonna be the next big thing suga, don’t mess this shot up.” Plenty of hours invested in resistance, the fashion fopa trio had been perfectly styled. First, Castor. Hair braided into thin chain like strands, third-eye concealed by a white scarf wrapped around his forehead, elegant three-piece suit, all white of course with a black inside cardigan to match. A single red rose in his right suit pocket just so the colors would pop, and perfectly shone white square mount shoes.

The women in the dressing room ‘Kyaaaa’ at the sight of the cleaned up pirate captain, who was now a full fledged model after some major alterations. However, Castor’s eyes read of mental exhaustion, Jazzy’s threats forcing him to maintain a permanent smile rung through and through. “Non Non Non. If you ruin my show, I’m tossing your weapons into the sea.” The sound of the woman's voice haunted him, sending a shiver down his spine.

“That… woman… is a demon.” Castor murmured to himself, feeling extremely awkward, unaccustomed to the extremely formal wear.

Up next was Newport, who dressed in a matching colored tuxedo, with suspenders and neatly trimmed edges to accommodate the muscular old-man’s build. Sipping from a pitcher of Sake, Newport broke out into laughter after he’d seen the Captain’s attire.

“Bwahahaha…. You sure look nice boy-o. All yer missing is that Princess of yours and we could have the wedding now! Bwhahaha!”

A scuffle between Castor and Newport broke out.

Finally, the last and most peculiar of the three emerged. Red Kabuki Armored suit dressed in a white monk’s outfit, carrying a banner bearing the signage of Jazzy’s shop. Giant Black Beads around his neck, and matching accessories to compliment the look completed the newly born fashionable trio’s looks.

"Absolutely. Dashing." Duke chimed in, flexing in front of a nearby mirror. Leaving blank expressions on both Nox and Newport's faces.




A hour before final fitting & Alexi’s abduction


“Now. You three will be the only men in the catwalk. Compris, bon! (Got it, good!)” Jazzy declared, as she’d run her hands through yards of fabric, adjusting each model's fit by personally. “You’ll be escorting each of the ladies to the end of the walk-way, pose, and then back down. Your outfit won't change, you’ll be showing the gents in the audience how good their wives/mistresses will look walking next to them. Once the final gal completes her walk, the stage will collapse in a dramatic manner, and a smoke machine will disperse. That’s when we’ll b-line towards the ship. The ladies have been instructed to play damsel in distress, faint, whatever needed to give us some time to escape.”

“Just hop on to me. I’ll use my tank mode to drive us to the deck.”


“Then it’ll be my turn to sail us out the port.”


“I’ve already scanned the sea charts and prepped the Log for the next island. Twin Capes it is. We might pass Lvneel on our way there.”




“Sans plus attendre, que le spectacle commence!” (Without further delay, let the show begin!)

Thu Jul 08, 2021 6:39 pm
After some time had passed, a woman with undeniably superb fashion taste walked up to the top of the stage. She carried along with her the unmistakable presence of a queen and the allure of a goddess. Her magnificent attire glistened in all its glory as the crowd cheered with vigor. Her expressions, although dramatic, were fluid and concise. For Alexi, this woman was obviously without match in all of the Blues and beyond.

The aspiring star couldn’t help but stare agape. Time seemed to have stood still for her as the redness in her cheeks grew cherry red in a rush of excitement. THIS is what she, herself, aspired to be. To stand atop the stage and command the love and adoration of hundreds, if not thousands. Alexi’s heart skipped a beat as a rush of emotions came over her. She had to meet this woman. Simply had to. Her life and career depended on it.

However, just as these thoughts crossed her mind, Alexi was abruptly forced back into her current reality. Pulled back into the crowd by some unexplained entity, Alexi was taken from where she had last stood. Alexi blinked in shock and confusion. It did not take long for adrenaline to soon kick in. The alleged bounty hunter was just about to fight her way out of it when she found herself sitting on a chair in a lavish room.

Alexi blinked once more. This time, with pure uncertainty on what to do or how to perceive her current situation. Nevertheless, the self-proclaimed model said nothing as she looked around the room she was now in. Without a doubt, the room she had been placed into was a fitting room of some sort. Although, it became more clearer than ever when she was swiftly attended to by one of the employees.

Lady Jazzy picked her out of the attendees,'' the stylist working on her chippered excitedly. Alexi nodded meekly. “Consider yerself luckily darling. The last gal she selected ended up becoming a well known face in the theatre scene.” Alexi immediately perked up. Now this is exactly what she had always dreamed about. Perhaps not the abduction but everything else seemed to go according to her lifelong plan.

Alexi couldn’t help but grin. Sure, the aspiring star had no idea how she had gotten there in the first place but there was no way Alexi would let the opportunity go to waste. All she needed to do now was perform amazingly well and show off to all those who had doubted her. That way, none would ever forget or even question the fact that she truly belonged up on the stage.

Alexi’s grin widened as her mind turned towards sweet vengeance. She decided that regardless of what happened, she would make eye contact with the two women that had scoffed and sneered at her. Even if it were but a drop in her endless desire for fame, she would let the feelings of victory wash over her like rushing waves. Simply to see their faces would be enough to get her skin to prickle with excitement.

This, in turn, gave rise to a crashing wave of triumph over those beneath her. Even if this would last but mere minutes, she would make sure to relish them to their fullest. After all, Alexi had finally arrived where she needed to be. However, her job now was to secure it by whatever means necessary. That, and use the opportunity to find the one who would guarantee her endless fortune. Oh, how she had hit the jackpot.

From the store front, one by one, each model confidently strutted on to the runway ramp. At Jazzy’s command, the woman signaled for her creations to come to life, waving her hands in a manner similar to a musical director conducting an orchestra.

To her, clothes were more than just fabric, her feelings were akin to a mother sending her child off to kindergarten for the first time. With loving eyes, Jazzy watched as her catalogue lit up the stage to cheers and gasps, a mixture of contemporary and edgy fashion looks that were the cornerstone to her signature style.

For a moment, she’d forgotten once again that this was a plan but the work back-stage had only begun. Hopping off the platform, the woman returned to the inside of the storefront, where every model and assisting staff were running around like headless hens in the barn. Make-up stations, abandoned outfits and absentee prep areas were left ransacked.

Jazzy turned her eyes to the latest prospect. Strutting towards the woman and the two stylists, the woman’s iris and Alexi’s own locked and made one. Scanning the woman from head to toe, Jazzy snapped her fingers summoning aid from her henchwomen.

In a flurry of precise actions, the fashionista obtained the woman’s three sizes, and began to fantasize about which outfit to dress her in first, almost with an old lecherous old-man’s smile. However, the hailstorm of emotions had only begun and within seconds, Jazzy would begin undressing and dressing the woman in several outfits.

Finally, settling on a summer dress, with peachy laced thrills that floated in the wind and conveyed the heart of the season. Running her hands through the woman’s curls, the stylists and hairdresser watched in awe, as the woman assembled her look. High pin up bun, with several joining bangles trimmed with gold, translucent rubber bands positioned carefully to not only prevent damaging her hair but also, adding no additional color to the aesthetic she’d been chasing.

Reaching for several hair pins and a brush, Jazzy went to work assembling the woman’s look for the evening.

“Votre peau est tellement lisse et vos capitons ! Tu es le plus mignon.” (Your skin is so smooth and your dimples! You're the cutest.) Jazzy raved, as she’d run the brush through the woman’s wool like curls in immense glee. Next was make-up.

Walking up to the woman’s work station, Castor was scanning the pages of a log-book he’d acquired from Duke, looking to bounce a few ideas for their escape off Jazzy. Her hands on auto-pilot, she’d turned her attention to the Captain momentarily.

“You finally look presentable.” Jazzy teased, running the brush with care, pinning sections as she’d go. “Well, I can’t say I’m exactly accustomed to this kind of thing. Though, I do enjoy the character aspect of it. When will I ever get to play a model in my line of work again, that’s a farfetched day dream.” Castor chimed in chuckling, scanning the pages, diverting his eyes only momentarily to acknowledge the woman in the chair.

The two exchanged dialogue in a coded manner, trying not to reveal even snippets of the plan ahead. After a bit more banter, Alexi’s look was completed. “Absolument magnifique..” she’d exclaim, turning the woman’s attention to the mirror in front of her. Clapping her hands, “Now now… No time to lag! Get her onto the runway! Attendre Attendre (Wait Wait!) I assume you know how to walk like a model mademoiselle?” the snow headed goddess inquired. Contradicting her own self with the flaky nature of her demands.

“This will be a good teaching experience.” Jazzy thought to herself. If the woman responded yes, she’d force Alexi to teach Castor how to walk. If she’d answer no, Miss Courtier was about to school them both in her crash course for elegance.

Alexi hummed happily to herself as the stylists continued to expertly work their magic. The way they styled her hair right down to how they redesigned her nails, everything was just as she had dreamed about. Without a doubt, this experience was truly what she considered heavenly. Not that the self-proclaimed celebrity believed they had much to do considering her already picture perfect good looks.

The self-proclaimed bounty hunter turned slightly to inspect herself in the mirror as the stylists busied themselves with adjusting and readjusting a few more details. The enhancements made to her were truly unexpected but quite well-received. Even she could not deny that she looked even better than before which made her chest swell tightly in excitement and glee.

However, just as quickly, Alexi was placed back in her original posture as the hairstylist curled a few more strands of her hair. The artists working alongside her all moved quickly which heightened the reality of how quickly they needed to send the rest of the models out. As they moved from girl to girl, the supposed bounty hunter’s nerves began to fray.

Even to Alexi, it was clear that much depended on the show coming out as a great success. Yet, perhaps due to her inexperience, she was beginning to falter. This, in turn, let flickers of doubt creep into her mind. If this show was to be as grand as the general public made it out to be, surely the other women modeling in it would be up to par or even better… right?

With that thought in mind, the ex-Marine allowed herself to look around the room before fully relaxing against the chair. Her nerves alleviated. Clearly, she had worried for nothing. No one, from what she could see, even came close to her in terms of beauty. True, the other girls had more experience but, today, she would be making her debut.

Just as the self-proclaimed star was beginning to fully immerse herself into her highly deserved and justly-earned moment of luxurious grandeur, the Madame suddenly approached her station in all of her godly glory. Alexi’s mind immediately sped into hyperdrive. This was the moment she had been waiting for!

Alexi’s bright green eyes sparkled in anticipation. The opportunity to converse with the Madame had undeniably been handed to her on a golden platter. All the alleged bounty hunter needed to do was confirm and secure her place in the fashion industry. Sure, she had just heard about the Madame’s existence just a few moments prior but what did it matter?

However, contrary to how Alexi imagined her first meeting would be, the rising star was anything but eloquent and tactful. In fact, she, quite unfortunately, remained completely mute as her mind hurled itself into the wonderful world of fantasy. Nonetheless, she maintained her amiable smile as the Madame came to take a closer look.

In her own little world, however, Alexi could see it now. Long gone would be the days people would scoff at her at the mention of being a celebrity. No more would she need to humble herself in order to find a place to stay nor would she need to scramble to make ends meet. The lights, the crowd’s adorations, the countless fans she would have… it was finally here.

Alexi let out a happy sigh. Everything that was rightfully hers was now within her grasp. She couldn’t wait until it was her turn down the runway as it would mean the beginning of everything to her. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t be until the Madame spoke that Alexi would be thrust back into the cusp of reality.

The supposed bounty hunter blinked as she realized how far gone she had been. To her luck, it seemed as if the Madame hadn’t noticed either which spelled good news for her. Regrettably, however, her time to speak had long since passed. All the poor bounty hunter could do was simply stand there much like a doll would and await the final say from the designer herself.

Perhaps, Alexi thought, it all worked to her benefit. The Madame seemed quite invested in her which really was all she had hoped for. It was to be expected, after all. And, if the designer, herself, remembered her, then that meant her job was done. At least, until the end of the show. Alexi grinned. Of course, she had never doubted herself. She was model material, after all.

Tu es le plus mignon.” Alexi would catch the Madame say. The emerging star blinked in confusion. She had no idea what had been said which caused her to stiffen ever so slightly. However, just one look at the designer told Alexi all she needed to know. Thus, Alexi reciprocated by giving the woman her best smile.

Whether the designer noticed or not, it did not deter Alexi from feeling beyond ecstatic. In fact, she was over the moon as the alleged bounty hunter was sure she was soon to be showered with compliments. After all, who could not look at her and sing praises in her name? It was only logical seeing as how the Madame had picked her out from a crowd of thousands.

Soon, a seemingly young man would come up to her station and proceed to enter a conversation with the Madame. Of course, being quite the professional, Alexi would choose to listen in on the conversation. After all, it was evident that they were both on friendly terms and, seeing as she had no prior knowledge on the Madame to use, it would provide a bit of insight.

However, the conversations would give her nothing to work with besides the gentleman being a newcomer to the industry. Although it was not something she could use, it did give her a surge of confidence. Furthermore, it provided her with the intel that the man was important to the Madame which meant she needed to get to know him if she wanted to maintain contact with her.

Alexi nodded towards the man to acknowledge his presence. Not that she cared about who he was. He wasn’t her target nor was he the Madame. Nevertheless, the so-called model thought to herself, he was most likely the key in getting on the Madame’s good side. Not that Alexi needed to worry much considering how amazing she was.

The Madame would usher them both towards the beginning of the runway before stopping herself short. “I assume you know how to walk like a model mademoiselle?” Alexi nodded enthusiastically. This was her time to shine! She would glace covertly at the gentleman next to her. Considering his friendship with the Madame, surely he knew how to walk, too. Right?

As soon as the duo stepped onto the rampway, the crowd ‘oo’ed’ and ‘ahhh’d'. Wrapping his arm into Lexi’s own, forming a pretzel-like shape, Castor would whisper in the woman’s ears.

“Usually in these cases the guy takes the lead but I’m new to this. The floor’s all yours.”

To be known for murder, espionage and treason one day... to be walking in a fashion show in a enemy island, it was the simple thrills in life that got Castor’s heart throbbing. Usually, crowd’s would either curse or run away for their lives at this person, but today, he wasn’t Castor O Nox, the pirate. Today, he was model number whatever in Jazzy’s extravaganza.

He’d botch the walk every step of the way. In between stepping on Lexi’s toes, the suaveness he’d had at the top of the ramp withered into oblivion about half-way through. It was truly embarrassing but in true Castor-like fashion, no inkling of humiliation or shame appeared on the man’s face, just an odd, default, clean-cut mechanical smile.

The crowd began to murmur amongst themselves, everyone's eyes and hearts went out to the model who’d just had her debut moment ruined by the strange braided male. Meanwhile, in the back, Jazzy was having a complete meltdown. Though the new-comer's strides were gorgeous,  if it weren't for Castor, she'd would've pass this first test with flying colors. However, each attempt to regain composure, was met with either a stumble or a sandal to her exposed heel wearing toes.

Jazzy sent multiple of her workers into the audience in attempts to try and signal to Castor to slow-down the strut or at least take Lexi’s instructions but unless someone interjected, the walk back to the top of the runway would be just as horrendous. Newport found immense joy in the spectacle, bursting in laughter at the stupid expression on Castor’s face as he’d been performing so poorly.

“Bwahahaha! You expected that battle crazed nerd to be poise and elegant! Good look! It took me almost two years to teach that brat to eat with a knife and fork. Nox’s has a bunch of book-smarts… I think he’s one of the smartest brats I’ve ever met… but when it comes to soft skills… He is incredibly lacking.”

“Oh non, quel désastre.” (oh no, what a disaster.) Jazzy thought to herself, fuming at the display. It was only until the duo made it to the end of the runway, and began to return back up that both the dolled up newcomer and Castor could’ve seen the expression on Jazzy’s face. It simply read, and even a small infant could’ve picked up on the body language.

‘Fix it. Now.’

Finally, Castor had caught on that the murmurs in the crowd were about his atrocious walk. The default gooey smile turned into a menacing one. One by one, Castor would discharge tiny, electrical darts at his critiques, leaving them for a lack of better words, speechless. One could even say, Castor took their breath away, quite literally but they'd wake up a few seconds later.

Hey. At least they were alive; in the olden days, the crowd would've been filled with a bunch of body bags.
