                                          Jane had been told many-a-time that her smile was contagious. That it was bright as the sun and those she addressed nearly felt better because of it. Well, Jane had stopped smiling. Lord Fairfax was unfortunately present in the thrown room, and Jane was not happy about the way he milked her father's enthusiasm. The man had not been in court for years and then enters as though he had the right to have control over her siblings and she. It just made Jane angry, and not only that but Joana, or Jo as she preferred to call her, reminded Jane of something she'd blocked from her mind entirely. Marriage. The youngest Rochester sibling felt her face decrease, despite her hardest attempts to keep a cheerful disposition. She could remember her father and mother discussing it with her like it was this morning.

                                          She'd woken up like any other day, and began her morning with a walk around the castle with dear Mabel when she was approached by her mother. She was told that Mabel was to report to wherever she'd needed to be at that time, because that was how her mother spoke to everyone, and that Jane was summoned by her father. Usually it meant that he'd had a new novel or something that he needed to be looked at, but Jane didn't know what was in store for her when she entered her fathers study. He'd been working on paperwork, and glanced up at her when she entered the room.

                                          Jane, come forward, I've got great news for you!"

                                          Jane grinned, that was exactly what she wanted to hear, approaching her fathers desk, she awaited some wonderful news. Maybe she'd finally convinced the king to let her venture to Libraries of neighboring countries. Instead her father began

                                          "Its a happy day my dear! It has been decided you are to marry-"

                                          He must have seen her face flush of all color, for he paused in the middle of his speech. His eyes turned colder than she'd ever seen them as he continued

                                          "My dear, you are no longer a child, it is time for you to take your place with the suitor that has been chosen. You will be a grand match, the youngest Viceroy. You know the one. You've known each other since near childhood by now I imagine. It will be good for all. Now then, No more of this, it has been decided. "

                                          The girl was speechless, truly. For the first time in her life she felt hatred towards her father, and it confused her immensely. The only thing she could think of was to turn from the room, and walk out. She ended up spending the whole day out in the stables, or out with her horse in the surrounding forest. Still, she could not explain why she felt like her life had truly ended. Granted over the last few weeks she'd managed to blank it out of her mind, since it was rarely mentioned thanks to the arrival of the princess. But Jo had to bring it up. It wasn't false, so Jane had no grounds to be vexed at her, so she wasn't. She hesitated on what to say, before deciding

                                          "Really sister, it seems hardly the time, we should be focusing on our brother today, yes?"

                                          Like an alarm, their mother cawed about the rest of her children, and were they were. Jane pondered on it as Jo gave a rather spiteful answer to the Queen. Jane scanned the court who were not addressed directly at the royal family at this moment, but on each other, they were conversing with other noble blood, and Jane could only assume it was gossip. Rather about the Alton royal family, Core royal family or even their neighbors, those of Court had nothing better to do than chatter about others. Speaking of their brother, he finally entered the thrown room, and the whole court took a moment to bow in the appropriate ways, and once he reached his father and mother, they turned back to their biddings. Henry greeted his two sisters, and Jane smiled.

                                          Her brother might have had a terrible reputation amongst women and such, but she knew that he was her brother. Unlike many relationships of nobles, she felt truly rich by her siblings. She knew if she stumbled to close to the ground, they would assist her. The youngest Rochester sibling was always hopeful that her strong sense of kinship would always be true. Things did change, and events no one could predict, happened. Jane turned her head as a Page announced the Arrival. Jane felt excitement boil inside of her.

                                          The announcement of the princess was made, and just after the princess and a few of her ladies in waiting appeared before the royal family of Alton. Jane couldn't help but give her a feint smile as the dark haired princess appeared before the court. It was never a fun thing to before any sort of large crowd you did not know- Jane sympathized with the Coren princess when it came to this. The visiting princess wore a red dress, which she wore matching Rubies. Jane had heard from many, the princess of Coren was quite an opinionated person as well as Jane. This was a very happy thought to her ear, but of her brothers? Perhaps like a lot of this worlds chatter was merely a rumor of false action? The youngest Alton princess stood as her mother, father, and sister did as well.

                                          Her father introduced her brother to his betrothal, and Jane couldn't help but feel a little giddy inside. It was the first time they were to meet, and they were to be wed, and yet, yet. It was not as adorable once Jane took a second to think about it, and that Jo, Ithaca and she were next. Jane pushed her ill thoughts from her mind, and looked at the exchange between the two. How she liked to see this part of her brother, chivalrous. Jane approached her brother, and put her hand on his shoulder

                                          "Brother, if you don't mind-"

                                          She looked at Bridget and smiled before beckoning a servant to bring a box forward. As told, the page brought a box forward and slid it open.

                                          "I hope you do not think my actions to bold, but I wish you to receive this as a welcome from my sisters and I. I hope you will love our home as yours "

                                          The box revealed a necklace Jane was most fond of, and when she'd seen it, she knew it was perfect for the princess despite never meeting her. She'd had it wrapped up instantly, and readied for the day. The Necklace, she hoped would symbolize that Jane meant no ill feelings towards the princess, nor should her sisters. Truth be told, Jane acted alone, but she knew her sisters would feel the same.

                                          "you speak of this to no one, you understand me boy?"

                                          The sheepish figure nodded as he pulled away from the Duke. In his hands was a piece of parchment, which Risley folded like so, and placed in his lapel. His eyes scanned downward across the lawn for any surrounding people. Today was the day that the Princess of Coren arrived, and things needed to go just so. The brunette would insure that nothing would get in the way, unless it was him. He had made necessary preparations these last few years to keep the name of Rochester clear. The kingdom would not dare speak ill of the family, unless they would like to deal with him which would lead towards their demise. The advisor began to walk to the castle where the king and queen would be sitting in court. His eyes saw no one aside the boy he'd just spoke to, turning out the gates of the gardens, Risley followed his path, turning opposite wise to one of the many doors of the castle. As he passed through the doors, he crossed his arms behind his back, crossing one over the other in an astute manor.

                                          His eyes scanned downward, for he looked down on nearly every one on gods earth, aside the king of coarse, but that was different. This world was about playing the cards that the lord set in front of you, and if you did not have the cards you wished, then it was your duty to change that. Unless you know, you weren't of status, then you should know your place. The world needed chamber pot cleaners and town drunks. Risley walked down one of the long corridors of the castle, his eyes scanning everything, it was all very much the same, yet different in every way. Risley had been back in court for a fort night, and he'd learned of much changes during his absence. The advisor was trusted by the King, which was at times a fault of the man, but Risley followed orders near all the time. He was known for more casualties than needed, but the king wanted things done and Risey knew the best and quickest ways to get them done. Granted, Risley knew how the wanted this world, and he was not afraid to work on his own progress, in time that was. He was no fool, he'd met more than one man who'd lost their tongues or worse for a simple slip of words. Risey knew how to play the court game, and it also helped being close to the King.

                                          Progressing into the thrown room, Lord Fairfax lifted his head slightly higher as the doors opened to announce his presences. Gestures and comments were quietly made as he crossed the large room to where the King and Queen sat perched on their perches. Risley grinned, from to ear to ear as he swept into a deep bow. Standing back up to a normal straight stature, Risley reached for the Kings hand with a shake as the king grinned. The adisor bowed his head again, and kissed his ring, showing the respect that he was suppose to show towards the man supposedly graced by god. But Risley knew better. The man grinned in a jovial manor as he lifted his hands

                                          "Your highness, I am blessed to be home in the glorious kingdom of Alton at such a miraculous time" .

                                          The king nodded, grinning at the idea of being told his kingdom was fantastic and that it was going to become even grander at this time.

                                          "We are glad to have you back in our presecnce Lord Fairfax, and my son will need your guidance in the next weeks of his life. "

                                          Risley nodded as thought he knew exactly where the king was coming from, and generally so, he did. The eldest Rochester was not hard to read, much like a book. The advisor smiled, and bowed towards the queen as well, kissing her hand. Stepping away from the royals he noticed the Princess. He bowed to her as well

                                          "Your highness, I am glad to see you've been well in my absence"

                                          The youngest of the Rochester siblings gave a smug look, and pulled her hand from his grasp as he leaned to kiss it. The King laughed, booming through the room.

                                          "It seems my daughter has felt forsaken by your absence advisor."

                                          Yes, that was it. Not the fact that none of your children of court have manner worth that of a pig.
                                          The advisor felt his jaw tense as his face resisted the urge to scowl. Scowling in front of court would have been a bad moment, especially now. Not today, not on this day. There was to be false cheerful moods and glorious praises to god. How sickening . The man bowed again before the king before stepping out of his gaze.

                                          "Ah yes m'lord-" The brunette smiled towards Jane as he continued "Do not worry child, you and your siblings alike will receive my utmost attention, all of you, especially our dear prince on this day, are so near my heart. "

                                          The king looked pleased, the poor sap. The princess though, refused to acknowledge his false modesty. Perhaps these children learned skills worth something these last few years. Granted if they had all learned to be deceitful and cunning he would have an even harder time changing them to a state of normalcy.

                                          He could not believe that only one of the Rochester children had arrived, only one. Not even the b*****d. Again, the scowl wished it's ugly head at his skin. Risley took his place near those of his status, which was a mock to him. He was above this, these pawns of the kind. He would bide his time though. His eyes scanned the room again, there were many members of court that he no longer knew by name or face. This made the man realize he'd been gone longer than he'd anticipated. Though, it was more than necessarily. One last scan across the room, and Risley felt antsy. He was not to be in one place for too long today. He was anxious, and not for the arrival of the princess. He had is own agenda that reflected his work abroad.

                                          There was no fear in Risley's eyes when he spoke with royalty, nor with the king himself. He felt his more at home at court now, there was nothing but ambition in this room. Each man stood, sons and even daughters of their own wishing by chance the royal family would take eye of their child in any way possible. Despite the arrangement between the Prince, fathers still pushed their daughters into his path, for people like that believed nothing was final until their was an heir. The court itself was well aware of this fact, thought Risley couldn't be sure the Prince was. Sure the prince was handsome in his own ways, but titles, that was what mattered. With the Princesses, it was near the same story, aside the potential sovereign power of coarse, but equally, a high status for a female. It was the highest they could acquire aside from queen. Joanna, Ithaca, and Jane alike were lucky they had a title, for if they had been his daughters, a right path to the nunnery would be sufficient enough. But alas, he was not able to command such drastic changes, even as advisor.

                                                        Lord Risley, The Abrupt
                                                        Risley Anthony Fairfax of Alton
                                                        w r i t t e n __ b y __ Petite Hibou

                                                        I know the world, and I have seen many things. These children that run about this castle know not what could be in store for them if they do not keep themselves in line. I have been in position for the crown since a young lad when I befriended the king during battle he my senior by less than twenty years. Which would obviously mean I was once a knight, still I am, you never forget the world you've left behind. I've saved the kings life more than one occasion, and he mine. I am forever in his debt, but that doesn't mean I always agree with the fellow. His son The Crown Prince is not how either of us expected him to be. He is exactly opposite his father at that age, and of what is needed to create this merge with Coren. The Princess Bridget which must play her part, for if she does not, our kingdoms will never merge. I sincerely hope this is not a foolish girl, who does not know her place. That will make things worse with what the castle has to deal with already, we have our hands full with not only the boy, but his three sisters, all of which need to be reformed as well. The Eldest Joanna needs to learn to be more hidden in her emotions, the world need not know what her silly mind thinks all the day. It is not societies job to care for her idle thoughts. As for the Princess Ithaca, her attitude towards womanly duties must be approached, and rectified if we have any chance of marrying her for her worth. Lastly we have the yongest Jane of which is more unruly than her sisters, perhaps the king would allow me to arrange a governess to re-teach for not only she, but her sister Ithaca as well? It is all so out of hand, you see I have been attending to pressing matters that the king bid me on for the last few years, and now that I have returned It shall not be as it has been. Running over those around them these Royal children need much work. No matter, I know these years in my absence they have "blossomed" into their own, but it is time now for them to get real to the world and if it takes my hand, so be it. Lord Fairfax is back, and there needs to be much reform.

                              Scarlett was shocked as she looked at her bowl, the warm tangy soup rested n her stomach now. Not just a bit of it, but the whole bowl. A smile spread across her face as she looked from face to face of the people around her. They chatted among themselves, and with Mama. She seemed to wrangle people in, and instantly make them feel like they knew her since childhood. She radiated this warmth that made Scarlett feel relaxed and like something good could happen. She assumed that this was not just her own feeling, because the tall lanky guy who sat adjacent to her, couldn't seem to keep his mouth shut, neither could a middle aged brunette and her husband. It calmed her, being here with complete strangers she couldn't help but laugh, joke, and share like the others did. her mind almost forgot the terror that was around the outside world. The spot they were in now was just to perfect. But beautiful things never seemed to last, why you ask? Her eyes had went to the only other person in this place she sort of knew, Damon. His face was washed of all emotion, cold as stone. He sat, unreacting to the commotion around him. She supposed she couldn't blame him. She would have handled the situation he was in not as gracefully. That douche bag would have burned and that slut? She would have been crushed, simple as that. Granted her situation the gender would be switched and all, but it was the same concept. There were male whores in this world! That was besides the point, Damon had handled it a lot better than she would have. he'd taken a brief moment of frustration out on Pierce and seemed to released the frustration he had and moved on. Well, sort of. That was admirable, his reaction. Even though he'd hit the slime ball and all, he could have done far worse. Scar averted her gaze, she realized she'd been staring at him for a bit to long for her preference.

                              About the time she looked away from Damon he decided to stand up, and even before that he seemed a bit off. She watched as he stood, saying that he was leaving. Her lips parted, ready to protest as he strolled over to his gun and lifted it over his shoulder. He began to mumble on about it being nice about something and Scarlett couldn't help but get a bit agitated. What was he doing? The nerve! Why on earth would he leave when the two of them were making a perfectly good team! She would bet anything that the brunette hadn't thought about other things that weren't a gun, but Scarlett? She'd managed to gather two packs, one backpack and another, a messenger bag, stuffed with various things they'd need. Pursing her lips now, she turned her head with a quiet humph. Fine! If he wanted to leave, then so be it. He could just wander off and get-

                              A scream ran through the air and Scarlett felt her body go numb. It seems their peace was short lived, and those disgusting things had found the safe haven. The room became a mad house, shoving, pushing, and above that was screaming. People panicked in the only way they knew how and everything was getting closed in. The room was swarmed with a wave of people running one way. Scarlett stood up, grabbing at her things, they were all they had at this time, and in the process she was nearly knocked over. Toppling over, she was caught by Damon who caught her just in time. She was pretty lucky that he was always there at the right time. Before being able to exchange formalities, Damon began pushing through the crowds, dragging her along. She barley managed to look back, through her hair, and the chaos to see Mama was keeping pace pretty close behind them. The woman was smart, and knew that they were going to find someplace to defend themselves, and they were going to make it out of here. Scarlett felt like that too, that slight hope of being prepared, at least some what. They hadn't been able to make it to any sporting good stores, but she had figured the good stuff was already out anyway, since they weren't first to arrive, it was likely that was the case. Mama on the other hand, seemed to be pretty well armed as she trailed along. A howl of a warning from a frantic person revealed the worst. Those ghouls were in here, they'd gotten in. Luckily those around her, Damon and Mama especially, were ready to move. Making way through the frantic crowds they found the destination that neither seemed to argue about. Scarlett tried to keep out of the way, and in the right place thanks to all the shoving, as Damon blew his way into their new safe haven.

                              Entering the location, there was a slight glitch. A oozing rotting figure growled and lurched forward. Scarlett had seen her fare share of these creatures, and she was ready for them to just get out of the world. The moaning creature had a short life span, because no sooner than Damon saw it, it's brains were blasted away. Scarlett winced as the blood splattered around the room, and she tried to ignore the fact that her leg had been splattered with it. She'd have to stomach it! She could get through this! She pushed herself into the room through the flickering light she could see her way, and behind the others, she sat her two packs down. Unzipping the first one she heard Damon say something , and she was in time to see the brunette lift his gun at Pierces head. Her eyes darted from the two, and between the cries of Becka, she could barley think straight. She gaped, like an idiot, but before Damon could pull the trigger Scarlett lunged forward, almost tripping over her own feet as she pleaded

                              "Damon, Wait! We don't know what could happen. We could try some medicine, really- "

                              Becka shrieked at the idea, apparently a good one in her mind because she was nodding profusely, and had reached towards Scarlett, like she was some sort of magical healer or something. Scarlett didn't push her away, even though she wanted to. She paused, thinking about what she had in her bag, she had some antibiotics in there, and maybe? It was worth a shot, and if not Damon could blast him away. As quick as her clumsy feet could take her she hurried back to her bag and leaned over it, back faced to the others she dug in her bag

                              "I've got something in here that we could give...a...shot...Here!"

                              She gave the bottle a look over, and then one more time, she motioned for Pierce to cross the room where she was. He didn't protest, and began a slow and what looked like a painful journey to her. Scarlett ignored Becka who was nearly hysterical, being comforted by Mama, and Damon who had eased up a bit. Granted he still had the gun in his hand, ready at any moment, but at least he'd put it at his side. Scarlett glance at Pierce who seemed to be moving slower and slower towards her, and she felt bad for him at this moment, this was a terrible fate. Turning back around she zipped up her bag, and as she turned around she heard Mama yell. Before she knew what was going on, she was being pushed forward, toppling over the table and her bag as a screech was heard behind her. The culprit was none other than Pierce. He had moved to slow, and it had gotten him, and as he lurched onward, Mama had seen it. She was quick to move in front of the creature, making a barrier between Scarlett and he. This though, was not a good idea for her. Scarlett shuffled to her feet, yelling at the creature to get back as he toppled over the woman, preparing to feast on her flesh, he scratch and clawed as Becka screamed. Scarlett wasn't sure what to do, grabbing the closest thing to her, she yanked a desk lamp free, and threw it with all her might

                              "GET BACK YOU THING!"

                              The lamp bashed Pierce on his head, and he reacted by thrashing again, Mama cursed as she tried to push herself free. The creature formally known as Pierce had managed to collide with the woman and she was struggling to keep him from going after not only herself, but Scarlett. The jolted created howled again, and thrashed at Mama. The ash skinned woman made a horrible screaming sound as Pierce cut through her flesh with his hand. With another howl, Damon moved and with a bang, Pierce slumped backwards, the contents of his brains over the surrounding area. Scarlett rushed to Mama, trying to pull her away from the dead corpse. The woman was covered in blood, from her own, and Pierces. Scarlett felt her face grow wet as she sobbed. Mama grinned,

                              "Why are you cryin' at me, child?"

                              Scarlett gasped, trying to catch her breath. She couldn't even speak. The woman winced, removing her arm from her shoulder that leaked blood so fast it made Scarlett a bit woozy. Between gasps, she tried to speak

                              "Just wait, okay Mama? *Hic* I'll get you fixed up-"

                              The woman smiled as Scarlett Grabbed at her bag. Approaching the woman again, she sat down, resting Mama's head on her lap. She tried to calm herself, keeping her eyes from crying seemed to be the hardest part. Pulling the shoulder of Mama's shirt out of her way, she pulled out a bandage, and began to dab the wound. The woman smile, and then pushed her hand away

                              "Oh no dear, you just sit on back and pray for me. I'm ready to be from this place, this world. I am the lucky one. "

                              Scarlett tried to hold it in, but again her tears burst from her eyes, and she couldn't help but making a terrible gasping sound as she cried. This wasn't how it was suppose to happen! This wasn't right, all of this was just a terrible thing, and it HAD to be dream! Why would something this miserable happen? She tried to wipe her face, but mid way rubbing her face, she realized that her hands were covered in blood, and her face now was smudged with it. Blood, that nasty stuff. She'd seen more blood in the last twenty four hours to last her a life time. She tried to wipe her hands on something, anything, but it was just all over the place. It didn't help that Mama's wound was just bleeding out. She felt helpless, the woman refused help, and Scarlett knew why. The woman grinned, and began to hum a bit of a tune, it was mellow, soft. She seemed to be humming her own little song, and as she progressed through the short tune, she grew softer and softer. After she'd finished, her breath grew shallow, and she winced in pain again. Scarlett appologized, not sure why, and the woman just laughed, well the best she could at least. Which meant it sounded more like a wheeze than anything.

                              "You be careful you hear? You and that boy, you make it through this-" She gasped, reaching her hand to Scars face, she tried to wipe a tear away, but she didn't seem to have enough energy. "You two make some gumbo, and...." The older woman took one last breath, and then like someone had ripped her soul from her chest, her head tilted to the side. There was something calm about her face now, but that didn't mean it was okay. Scarlett shook her head,

                              "No, no...No, Wake up! Don't go yet! " Scarlett burst again, crying to the woman who could no longer respond. This was her fault, she knew it. If she hadn't been such an idiot and let Damon blow off Pierces head before he could cause any damage, then none of this would have happened! She was so, just so dumb sometimes! And the result this time was the one person she'd seen that made her forget what was going on. She couldn't stand to lose her now, and it would only get worse. She needed Mama, but Mama didn't need her. The woman was ready to move on, and Scarlett just happened to be her heroic ticket out of here.
