1 Fighting Destiny on Mon Dec 18, 2017 11:33 pm

First topic message reminder :

It was long past curfew and Cora could hear the voice from one of the loudspeakers that were on every street corner informing people that anyone caught outside without a permit would be taken to one of many detention centres that filled the city. Despite this, the young woman didn’t budge from her perch by the river front. The smell of the toxic water below burned her nose, but even that wouldn't keep her from staring longingly at the twinkling lights on the opposite side. That was her home, the place she had loved and belonged in until she was sixteen and torn from everyone and everything she loved to start her life here as little more than cattle. No, scratch that, cattle had more freedom. This city was ran by the men. It held war and perfect order in higher regard than absolutely anything else. There was no art, no real music. Nothing beautiful or thought provoking. It was everything her true home hadn’t been. The city she   currently stared at was a matriarchy. It didn’t consider men second rate citizens, it simply meant equality came much easier. While they did indeed have their own army and soldiers, they also devoted time to creating beautiful architecture and maintining lush parks for the citizens to take long walks in whenever they chose. That was why it hurt so much that all girls born in a year that ended in an odd number were sent across the water once they reached sixteen. They were raised in paradise, then turned out into a hell of men’s making. It was an agreement both cities had with each other, that the girls would be exchanged in order to keep the gene pool fresh, and to avoid conflict that neither side would win without great loss.

Cora was still somewhat wary of this man. In her experience, no men in this city were nice in general, Keats of all without wanting something in return. “Yeah, I’m here. So what’s this job you have for me?”

The woman smiled rather knowingly. “Excellent, I hate it when the king it on a bad mood.”

"Security. You're going to be helping me to guard the king and his soon to be new bride." Jack continued to smile. "Right now she's just a pet but you get the idea."

Charline smoothed down the plain dress and followed the woman with a frown. "I'd like my mother's dress back, thank you." She muttered, feeling very much like she was going to cry at the thought that it was gone.

“What?!” Cora balked at the idea. “I seriously doubt you didn’t pull up my record the first time you ran into me. You know I can’t be trusted to stay out of trouble... or keep my mouth shut.”

“You would do well to remember where you are, girl. What a woman wants, and what she deserves are two very different things.” The woman replied as she walked at a rather fast pace.

Jack smiled at her. That same smile he'd had since the first time he'd seen her. "I've seen your record. You'll do fine." He told her gently. "Besides, the girl will need someone in her corner. I think you're just the one for the job. Stuck up old Netty telling her to learn her place is only going to break her before the king gets a chance to see what he's doing for himself. Now come on and keep your eyes on me and your mouth closed. My guys don't like new people."

Charline had a hard time keeping up and stumbled several times over the dress. "The first thing I'm going to do is tell your king how stupid this dress is." She muttered.

“Eyes only on you? Afraid I may see something I take a fancy to?” Cora asked with a playful smirk.

“Go ahead, insulting his taste is an ax Ellen’s way to have a hand removed, or while it would be your first offence,  albeit just your fingernails.” The elder woman told Charline with a snort.

"if you stare at my ass long enough. Yes." Jack chuckled. "Seriously, just keep trusting me." 

"Oh please. This isn't his taste. It's yours." Charline muttered.

“Right, you mean like you were staring at my breasts in the diner?” Cora shot back. “Is that why you trusted me?” She added, her brow arched in challenge.

“You can be so sure?” The elder woman asked. “Perhaps he thought you should be dressed appropriately, and not like the trash from the other side of the river?”

"I've seen bigger so...nope." Jack said cheerfully. "I decided to trust you because of your eyes. I like what I see in them." He was being honest. There was no reason not to be.

Charline stopped where she was, scowling deeply. "What would a bunch of war mongering males know about how to dress?" She hissed. "Look at the color of my dress? It's the same color of blood! It matches nothing but death!"
