Alicia ʺAliceʺ Stonem


Walking around the busy streets, a woman with long blonde hair looked around, hoping to buy some missing ingredients for the dinner she was preparing for a party she was hosting later on in the day. She looked as though she was lost the way she wandered from shop to shop, but the thing was, she knew the layout of this place like the back of her hand. When she was artificially created, her creator/father figure had made her learning capability amazing. "Hmm, I still need a few things..." she said, placing a finger to her chin, thinking of what she still had to purchase. Making her way towards the markets, she sniffed the air, it was filled with the smell of fresh produce and food being prepared. Smiling, Alicia did her best to navigate the narrow,busy streets of the market place.

(I wasn't exactly sure where to start, so I hope this was alright)

the friggen p i r a t e l o r d



              Ace growled, unhappy that she took back the coinage he has just freely took. She said she didn't want it so he knew he could make good usage of it. The touch of Arietta's bum on his lap pleased him though, but as she got up he had half the mind to pull her back down. The other half of his mind was set on getting the new girl to join up with him to where ever he was going rather than join ranks with Arietta.

              For now, Ace planned on tagging along on this little adventure- it seemed like an interesting idea. It beats rummaging through the city alone. The company of women lured Ace practically anywhere. "Three is a crowd, but four is a party." He said with a faint smile, looking over at Hesper, obviously checking her out without with a hungry look in his eyes. "Where ever you go, I'll go. For now. This can turn into something fun... If you catch my drift." He added a wink for more affect. Ace could see that Hesper was naive in certain aspects and he liked to poke fun with people like her.

              Ace stood up from his seat, ready to be on their way.

              (ooc:hanako; you'll find your footing soon don't worry ^-^)

"Nekto...Nekno...Nektonian! Got it! It's nice to meet you!" Hesper giggled lightly as Terumi perched on her shoulder, and she continued to pet her as she rubbed her cheek against the cat's side. She glanced over at the Growlancer and tried to think of it as a home, but she was having difficulty. The skull and pointy bits were a bit off-putting. Although, this whole experience had been more than a little off-putting at points, so she wasn't willing to count out the possibility just yet.
"You don't have to escort me, you've already done enough!" Hesper took the money back from Arrietta and looked at in her hand, her cheeks still tinged pink from embarrassment of the situation. It only got worse when she saw the look in Ace's eyes. She'd seen that look on a few people...mostly men...as she was dancing, but she still wasn't quite sure what those looks meant. No one had ever made those faces at her on her planet. All she knew was that it confused her. Hesper pulled her belly-shirt up self-consciously and then ran a hand through her hair. "Um...I don't know what drift there is to catch, but I really do have to go...I suppose you can come if you insist!" She gathered up her money again, and led the way out of the store and back onto the street. "By the way...what does 'plunder' mean?"

Zeran-Shu Zyrax-Shi
Arnelian Badass

The good and fortunate news for the Arnelian named Zeran-Shu was that obtaining the recipe that his future employer had requested had been just too easy to do, because in all honesty Zeran-Shu might have just done it out of spite even if the guy hadn’t had a job opportunity in wait for him, and yet now the problem facing Zeran-Shu was trying to find his employer, and right now Zran-Shu was wandering th streets, looking for hide or hair of his employer or the hot chick he was with, how hard could it be to miss a duo like that with a talking cat for company? And yet it seemed nobody had yet to see, or any traces that he could find ended up being dead leads, who knew that his employers was surprisingly hard to track down? It almost got the point that Zeran-Shu considered just forgetting about the guy and maybe looking for another place to work, but this could be the first job opportunity he had for the next couple of weeks, and this time it had been nice enough to be right there when his previous job was taken, surely this must have been a sign of some divine intervention of some sort on his behalf, and if all it took to make it happen was to find this guy, well there was no doubt that Zeran-Shu would find him somehow. And then from out of nowhere this really cute girl with blonde hair accidentally stepped in his path, and trying to avoid bumping into her he instead tripped and fell over, smashing his face into the ground and making an a** of himself… “Owwww…”

Smiling contently, Alicia held a basket with multicoloured produce, she could already taste the delicious food she was going to prepare for the party later. As she continued walking, she was suddenly started by a man with silver hair, dressed in black. She let out gasp as he fell on his face, quickly kneeling down besides the man, she set her basket aside and offered him a hand. "Oh, I'm so sorry, are you alright?" Alicia asked kindly, her voice showing concern for them odd looking man. Without much hesitation, she helped him up, and bowed her head apologetically. "I'm really sorry, I must not have been watching where I was going..." Alicia picked up her basket and looked him over, he didn't seemed injured but you could never be too sure.

“Did someone get the identification number on that spaceship?”, Zeran-Shu had muttered in his daze, not realizing it had been himself that had led to his current state of injury, but it wasn’t anything to worry about, even if any real damage had occurred, his Arnelian heritage meant that such injuries would only last for a few seconds at best, and then he’d be right as rain! Getting up and wiping off the dirt that had somehow gotten into his eye, Zeran-Shu looked into whoever he had avoided, and in his dazed state he remarked, “Are you what humans refer to as a Goddess?”, and while it might have seemed like a rather flirty and typical thing of Zeran-Shu to say to try to get into the pants of whatever female he pursued (ignoring females that he didn’t like and who relentlessly pursued him instead), this time Zeran-Shu’s question was completely legitimate, completely unable to process what was going on…

Holding her flushed face, Alicia smiled bashfully, "Oh my, that's very kind of you but no, I'm afraid I'm not." she answered sweetly having ignored his comment about the identification number to a certain spaceship. Taking a step towards him, her face returned to a state of concern, placing a hand on his head, "You had a nasty fall, are you sure you're alright mister...? Oh, I suppose I should properly introduce myself" removing her hand from his head, she placed it on her chest, "My name is Alicia, Alicia Stonem".

“The name is Zyrax-Shi… Zeran-Shu Zyrax-Shi, I’m an Arnelian, and you’re honestly the hott- most beautiful female I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting Alicia-chan, and trust me when I say I’ve seen some beauties, sorry about the confusion but I honestly did suspect you were a Goddess as humans call it when I was loopy.” And honestly now that Zeran-Shu thought about it, she really was the most stunning specimen of a female he had met, for some reason females of his own kind never really appealed to him, apparently it was a condition where he was attracted to females of other races, and most other females had traits about them that did not encourage him to pursue him, so he often went for girl that looked rather human in reality, and she honestly looked just like a human to him, which might have contributed to the compliment, but then all of a sudden Zeran-Shu forgot what he was supposed to be doing, and blamed it on the falling flat on his face, oh well… he did remember that he was jobless but not what happened in the middle between losing his job and coming here, oh well… wait a minute, was she going to cook?! “Are those ingredients? I’m a cook myself, and seeing as I’ve got nothing better to do, mind if I come with? I’m able to do most exotic dishes, and I’m a quick learner if you need me to do anything I don’t currently know!” Well, you couldn’t say Zeran-Shu was one to just sit around and do nothing, he was ALWAYS doing something, some people thought he had some nervous disorder where he simply couldn’t just sit still for five minutes.

"I've saved us so much on laundry bills by sleeping naked, that's why. Bed warmers are pretty expensive."

"He usually uses whores to make sure his bed is warm, anyways. Getting one long term usually ends uo being four times the usual laundry bill...And we must incarcerate the mattresses at times." Gumball Lok sat back and pulled out a small device, checking on mail before pocketing it.

"We've got 20 minutes till our appointment with the Argent ambassador. Man's so busy, he needs to set time aside for receiving gifts." Lok seemed excited, the yellow speeder taking a slight swerve around a ship that was making a rapid climb, the driver yelling out obscenities in some throaty tone. In several minutes, they arrived before a gated building, the trio let down outside. Paying the driver, he looked around and saw the other speeder coming around and landing right on top of the other driver.

"Run. RUN!" Gumball commanded, Lok and Era running into the gates, Lok pulling out a badge and pinning it on his chest. "That the thing about the Dugs, they just don't know how to pilot in normal society. They need to stay in the pod races."

"Well, whatever, we've got some time to kill before our guy shows up. He's a Fenian, so, you know," he put on some shades and took a seat on a bench along the pathway, "Play it cool."

In the background, the two cabbies were duking it out, one of them yelling as he slammed the others head into the hood of the speed cruiser., "YEAAAAAAAH!

Era cheeks became warm, though her mask hid their color. "Naked?! Whores?! Great... My boss is one of those womanizers. Just my bloody luck," she said as she put her palm to her head.
After Era got out of the cab, she took a moment to observe where they were, only to be informed to run as soon as the second cab had arrived.Doing as she was told she stayed by Lok's side. As Lok sat down to 'play it cool,' Era turned around to observe the scuffle between the drivers. "You don't care about the trouble you cause, do you?" Era said as she walked to the cab drivers.
Once she was with the drivers, she smacked them both. Giving them both threats until they drove off. Returning back to Lok and Gumball, she took a seat on the bench next to them. "The least you could do is clean up your own mess. Is it going to be like this all the time, Lok?" Era asked.
She was really hoping he would say no, but a part of her wanted him to say yes.

"Ow! I did nothing of the sort! They're the ones at fault. Who parks on top of another person's car! Seriously, it's not like I ordered that other cab in the first place." Lok rubbed his head, Gumball chiming in as she mimicked her master's movement.

"Our insurance won't cover that, anyways, so their on their own. Besides, The event occurred in Valesian soil, and we're in Argent jurisdiction, so we're off scott free." Gumball turned away and started to groom herself.

"Good work, Era. See, problem was resolved and we didn't have to lift a finger." He grinned, avoiding the woman's question, patting the spot beside him, "The motto of Rumba Runners is "We Run Like Hell!", and we stick by that through and through. Why's that, Gumball."

Gumball heaved the heaviest sigh she could, her displeasure in answering heard in her unenthusiastic tone, "Huuuuh, because if we stop, someone will surpass us."

Era rolled her eyes to the motto. "That motto seems pointless. If you keep running, you'll never be able to take the time to get things done. Besides, by the way the cat talks about you, you don't run to often. You must take time to sleep with your... 'bed warmers,'" Era chuckled.
While stretching, she let out a yawn. She slouched to make herself more comfortable, stretching arms out on the back of the bench. Closing her eyes, she attempted to nap. Though the city was too noisy, so she stayed awake. Sitting up straight once again, she looked back to Lok. "This is rather boring. Don't you have something better we could be doing? I'm game for almost anything at this rate," Era sighed.

"That's your negativity making you think like that, and seeing as you're probably disappointed in your meal, I forgive you for being so crabby." Lok shrugged, keeping a laid-back tone. He rolled his eyes and leaned to one side, propping himself up with an arm, "We're delivery people, we keep out schedules and provide a quality service. If you haven't noticed, we're early for our delivery."

"He does have a point, but it's his personality that seems to get in the way of having you see it... My idiot master isn't all that bad of a guy...though we could do without the professional 'escorts." Gumball said with a little more faith, though it was hard to tell with her trailing remark.

"If you're bored already, then maybe you'd rather just go back to the ship and leave a defenseless man and his cat to go patrol the area and look for purse snatchers or snipers or something." Lok said, pulling out the device from his pocket and handed it to Era, "Hm, here, try and catch all the Pocket Beasts. Should keep you occupied. Just wave it around and press the button to capture them."

Era took the device from the man. She examined the front, the sides and the back. Unsure of how to play, she clicked random buttons until it turned on. Raising one brow, she began to play the game. After several rounds of failed attempts, she leaned closer to Lok. "What am I doing wrong? Just watch and tell me," she said as she started another round.
As Era played the game, she heard some people giggling. Looking up from the game, she thought they were looking at her. Placing the game in Lok's lap, she scooted away from him and crossed her arms. "I no longer wish to play. I'll just sit here like a damn obedient dog, and listen to the master," she huffed.
After a few minutes of silence, she figured some knowledge about Lok and the snack cat may be in order. "So tell me about you two? Anything I should know that might be vital information? Hmm?" Era asked as she looked at Lok and Gumball in the corner of her eye.

"There, there, it's not so hard once you've gotten used to it. It's not a game to play out in public though. With friends, it's a lot more fun." Lok pocketed his game and lifted up his shades, "And I'm not really a dog person, so don't worry about having to listen to me. Gumball hardly ever takes what I have to say, unless it deals with getting her gifts."

"It's not like I hate the guy, but I'm sure you've already seen a peek at the chaos that follows him... Well, this is hardly the full blown picture. Take it from a cat whose lost twelve lives living with him, this is only the beginning, or in my case, a continuation from the last episode." Gumball hopped back into Lok's lap and he stroke a hand along her back, the cat purring smoothly.

"Well, my mom is a human and pops' an Argent. I'm also an idiot." Lok said simply, his tone sounding like a joke, though he must have been trying to play

"And I'm a talking cat, if you haven't noticed. Lok found me when I was wandering around the street and after a while, I just started learning to talk. There's a legend amongst humans that cats and humans had learned language, but after hearing how poorly humans spoke, cats stopped speaking in front of them. well, it's mostly just cause humans are stupid that we don't normally converse with them. Other races, suuure, especially the ones that believe us to be gods. I love those sorts of places." Gumball scratched her ear with her hind leg before shaking her head.

Lok nodded, remembering such, though the time they went to a space station full of a dog-like race of people turned out to be a bad place to make a deliver with a cat. "Oh, you should also know that... my eyes are indigo, not purple. it's really lame when people mess that up."
