    It was nearing spring and that meant the social season was just beginning, he hated this kind of thing but he was use to it. It also helped with his families standing, he just hated being a pawn in a bigger game but this was just his life he guessed. What he didn't really understand was why his elder brother and sister didn't have to go through this but he did, it was almost like his family had given up on them when it came to this kind of thing. His brother was a social butterfly of sorts, then again if rumours were to believed when he did do this sort of thing he left more than his fair share of broken hearted and swooning women along the way. He did eventually want to be the one to someone but he wanted it to be his choice not some aristocrat because that was what was expected of him. He sighed as he thought about yet another one of the expectations laid on him, he was to marry a well to do woman who would bring their own prestige and add it to his family. He knew he should care but he really didn't, he just wanted space to breath and right now if it wasn't one thing it was another, he just felt like he was suffocating.

    Rubbing the back of his neck he realised he was likely being foolish thinking that Artemis would even be able to take part in the social season, he was in charge of a secret that no one but a select few knew about and even then no one but himself, Lynus, a select few within the family knew it was him. They had given the excuse that Artemis that was busy learning the family business which was believable given he was the heir to the family business. He looked inside the reflective surface of the water of the fountain he was standing at, his sapphire blue eyes looking at the pin he wore in the reflection. 'hmph, the name suits us... nothing but cloaks and daggers to each other nevermind everyone else.' he thought to himself. Apollo was currently wearing a black pair of dress trousers, a white dress shirt, white and red petticoat and a black blazer. In his arms he held a dozen long stem red roses for the girl he was to meet here, his eyes shifted to the architecture of the town around him.

    This was the first time that he had been to Hosenka and not had to go right to a ball or a board room, he knew he didn't have to worry about Lynus to much. Then again he knew he was in the town but dealing with 'other' issues and would catch up when he was done, he hoped it would take him all day but he knew deep down that wasn't going to be the case, it never was when it came to that side of things. Lynus was deadly efficient and beyond good at what he done, he guessed it was the reason his grandfather had chosen him to be his bodyguard. He really wish he could put a hit out on his cousin Gabriel but knew that would kinda be looked down and he would get into so much trouble even if the weasel deserved it on so many levels. He didn't understand why his cousin hated him and Artemis so much, it wasn't like they had done anything to deserve it, well unless being born in the main branch was a crime.

    He was brought out of his mind as he heard his name being called "O-oh, sorry I was in a world all my own Emily." he apologised holding the roses out to her "These are for you, I heard Yu-chin Florists was your favourite and made a stop along the way." he said softly allowing her to take the flowers and sniff them her cheeks blushing, more so that he placed his hand at his heart as his arm went behind him as he bowed at the waist "I would be most honoured if you would allow me to be your escort for the day." he said in a charming voice. Emily's cheeks became a deep red almost matching the red of her lolita curled hair, she wore a beautifully elegant pale green dress that had been golden thread embroidery and what looked to be a few emeralds here and there just to make it pop a little more. "O-of course Apollo" she said in a sweet voice once again sniffing at the roses she had been given. Standing he offered her arm to her which she happily accepted without a second thought "So Emily, is there anywhere you would like to visit? I'm sure with it being the beginning of the season you have a lot of shopping to do." he said with a charming smile.

    The girl nodded "You have no idea how much pressure there is to get the right dresses." she explained as the began walking down the street, he looked to her nodding, to anyone around them they would look like a couple that were in the mists of courting "I can't say I do being male, but, I can say whatever you decide to wear would only add to your natural beauty." he said the compliment making her giggle as they walked "Why don't we start with getting some shoes for your feet?" he suggested this made her blink, it made him feel like he had just said something odd "Y-you want to go clothes and shoe shopping with me?" she asked sheepishly it was as if she was expecting him to say that this was a trick on her "Nothing would make me happier than helping you decide your wardrobe for the season Emily, after all I am to be your escort the entire season." he said not minding that she was hugging his arm her head resting on it as they continued to walk towards the first boutique.

    POST TITLE,
    There was word of a cute little town that was built a bit differently than others in Fiore. The place was said to be flashy, and have a famous spa somewhere in there. The white queen wanted to see what all she could do in this new town. She simply loved going to new places after leaving Iceberg. How much she got to see… the people, buildings, stores, foods, seasons. It all seemed all too entertaining to pass up. She had arrived in Hosenka and put her hands to her cheeks. “Oh! It’s so adorable!” She coos to herself. The white queen, as per usual, was wearing an off the shoulder, white dress that didn’t cling to her body for once, and went down to her ankles and expose her white flats. There was a little bit of black lace around her chest on the dress, standing out with the little bit of pearls at the top. The guild mark she admired so much was still in plain view, right above her cleavage. Her white hair was pulled up into a ponytail for once, and it came down in a massive swirl. She even donned her crown upon her head still. Honestly, she never took it off besides to sleep. Her purple-ish pink eyes glance around the area for something interesting to do first. Or if there was something she wanted. There was always something she wanted wherever she went though.

    She was traveling down the streets, skipping a bit as her focus was on her reflection in some windows, and what was inside the stores. She wanted to see what there was for her to get. There were plenty of jewelry that she found to be a delight, but there were too many people in the way. Yeah, she could have taken care of them quickly, but she didn’t want to have to fight someone so soon… She’ll go get the jewels later, regardless if it was crowded or not. As she walked, she spotted a couple walking, and frowns. The male looked like he was a sweet gentleman to the girl, but she makes a face. She seemed like she was a bore with how she clung to him. A smile slowly begun to crept onto her face, showing her sharp teeth as she had finally decided she wanted something. She wanted to have something new to play with again. Maybe another servant girl to work with Nadaline? Or did she want to see what this guy was about? That was her new dilema.

    Then she heard his voice. Her eyes grew wide for a moment as she looked to the redheaded male. Her decision was now made up. The girl was now her target to kill, or possibly make another servant. It really depended on how this girl reacts, or if she can even do anything at all. She looked the girl up and down a bit, and snorts. The girl was trying too hard to impress this guy to her. Which made her think that these two weren’t an actual couple. As they were walking to the boutique, she skips over to them, smiling rather brightly, not caring about her teeth showing like they were. “Hello!” She says in a rather excited voice. “You seem like you’re not having too much fun here walking around!” She giggles to the male while glancing over to the girl next to him. She slightly leaned forward, letting her chest slightly spill out of her dress, while she held her hands behind her back. “Green doesn’t suit you well at all. Maybe red would look better for you. But even if not, you seem like you’d be a nice toy to play with still!” She tells her flat out, not caring about the reaction she’d be given. She let her eyes drift back towards the guy once again, a sweet smile coming to her face. “Hi~! I'm Saraphina.” She giggles to him while pushing a lock of her hair behind her ear.

    Ren was continuing walking down the street with Emily, the two stopped every now and then to watch street performers, listen to music or look in the shop windows at the latest fashion for both men and women of standing. This was nothing unusual for the season and it was something that he had grown accustomed to when he done etiquette lessons, as he had to understand what was expected of him in such social situations. He had kept somewhat aware of his surroundings as he had been taught after all Emily's safety was his priority, she was a wealthy heiress of a family of some renown and though their hadn't been any formal announcement of yet he feared that his family were up to something requesting the pairing to the mother of the rose. From what the teen understood was the woman who decided who would debut, who was paired with who, the one in charge of the young ladies etiquette lessons amongst other things. To much information for him to take in but that was of little consequence really as he wasn't the one that had to go through it, he had his own form of torture when it came to such lessons and then he had to make himself available at times she wanted to do this kind of things.

    He was smiling and laughing with the young lady that was on his arm seeming like he was genuinely enjoying himself, within reason he was right now. It seemed like he and she were completely forgetting the world they had been born into and just enjoying the time alone without their chaperones. They stopped however when they had been approached by another, he was about to ask if there was something that they could help her with as he looked over how the woman looked. He took over every small detail and blinked more so ans he seen the crown unsure how exactly to take the other for now. Both Ren and Emily noticed the sharp needle like teeth that made Emily uneasy making her hold onto Ren's arm that much tighter "W-we should go..." she whispered looking to Ren, who could only smile a reassuring smile and nodded without a word he took a step forward but stopped as the other woman started to look Emily up and down making the young red headed woman that much more uneasy as she felt like she was being graded like a piece of meat, she really didn't like it.

    Ren sensing the young woman's uneasiness moved in front of her protectively "Hello madam." he said his voice warm as he put himself between the two women "We are in fact enjoying our walk, it has been a while since we had done so." he corrected her his voice never losing its warmth, his charming smile never faltering, he sighed a little however as she insulted Emily's sense of style. Emily herself huffed a little hearing it also "At least I'm not wearing clothing from three seasons ago." she said coldly, it was clear she was upset about the others comment "Emily, such insults I wouldn't expect from you." he said looking back to her with a mischievous chuckle only to see her pouting "Well, she started it." she commented "Still, what would the mother of rose say?" he commented making the girl blush realising just what she had done. "Madam..." he said turning his sapphire blue eyes back to the woman with the white hair "I believe that she looks beautiful in her current attire, it brings out her eyes and natural beauty." he said making the young woman he was protecting blush brightly "A-Apollo.." she whispered her voice giggly.

    His eyes turned back to Emily for a brief moment and smiled before turning back to Sara and tilted his head "Madam, dear Emily is not a toy she is a young lady and deserves the respect as such." he explained calmly listening to how she introduced herself finally "It is a pleasure to meet you Saraphina, my name is Apollo and this beautiful polished gem behind me is called Emily." he said placing a hand on his chest and his arm behind his back as he bowed towards her in his usual curtious manner. "So please madam Saraphina, if you would allow us to continue on our way. I am Emily's escort for this social season." he explained once again to the other woman "We were going shopping for clothing for the season" Emily almost squee'd hugging his arm from behind him making him chuckle "And I look forward to every moment of it." he said gently with a warmed tone.

    NOPE OUT,
    As he moved in front of the woman, Saraphina simply smiles to him pushing her loose hair behind her ear again as it didn’t want to stay put. His words made her frown a little. She could of sworn that he looked bored to her, or maybe she could get him to admit so for her. She then pauses at the other woman’s words, and her eyes grew wide. Who was this girl to insult her clothes?! She heard him speak of this ‘mother of rose’ and takes a deep breath. Of course… A snicker comes across her lips now as she was now thinking of something. She lets out a snort as she rolls her eyes to him complimenting the other girl and her ‘natural beauty’. She bit her tongue for now though. She wanted to gag a bit. This girl just didn’t seem like she was worthy of praise. She guessed it was time to start playing with her toy now. She held her hands behind her back. “Aegir.” She mumbles a little. A rather large bubble of water from the fountain came floating out.

    She makes a slight pout to him trying to tell her that the girl wasn’t a toy. That didn’t sit right with her… He’s already upset her, though, she paused as he bowed while introducing himself to her. A blush couldn’t help but lightly dust her own cheeks as she removed one hand from behind her back, and picked up one side of her skirt, dipping to a rather flawless curtsy. Years of practice in a mirror helped her in this regard to make sure it looked perfect. She just stares at him for a moment as he speaks again, asking for her to let them go again. Though, she technically had no intentions of doing so. “Of course! Though… it’s a shame, that the polished gems are simply fake and aren’t allowed to find their own prince charming, or even princesses, on their own and needing to have someone else shove some dope and say they’re going to marry them.” She shrugs her shoulders as she lifts herself up on her tippy toes before spinning bout face. They’d see the hand behind her back, and the wiggling fingers. The next moment, water suddenly fell down on Emily.

    The white haired girl looked over her shoulder before glancing up to the roof of the building next to them, trying to figure out where that water had come from. Her fingers were still wiggling a bit though, making it seem like she hadn’t done a thing. “Oh… you might want to also be weary of polished gems too, often they can crack all too easily and be ruined forever.” She warns as she skips away. As she did so, she let her arms go out to balance her and started to wiggle her fingers more. “Prince’s of Silver, Prince’s of Gold. Prince’s of new, Prince’s of old~ My lovely prince will be perfect, And he’ll be strong! He’ll protect me while fighting with me, My prince will fall for me and see that I do no wrong~” She giggles while she sings her little song, not caring if it didn’t even sound too great to anyone else. Her fingers wiggling seemed to have summoned water around her now. The water was looking like it itself was dancing to her song. She glances over her shoulder to the guy, Apollo. What a nice name. She wanted him now. Or, at least the girl dead after her stunt she pulled. “A prince to rule by the queens side, Happily and forever, Free till the end of time~” She turns her attention back in front of her. Continuing her song, she went off to see what she could find. Though, part of her was rather upset that he blocked the girl, she wanted to make quick work or her… Guess this was destiny to play with her.

    Saraphina had gone back to the fountain and let the water go back into it while she stood there. She pouted a bit though. She wasn't sure how to play with this girl. Besides her looks, there wasn't much on her she knew. It then donned on her. He brushed her off! She looks into the fountain and sees that she has a rather upset face. Did she really look that bad? She didn’t wear makeup, feeling like she looked rather pretty without it. She looked back over her shoulder. Yeah… that ‘beautiful polished gem’ has to go. She was ruining all she wanted now. She let up a whistle for her servants, knowing they weren’t too far from her. “Bertrand, do me a favor and find out about that girl. I want to play with her a bit more before I kill her.” She muses happily. “I want to find out all the bad… bad things she and her family does. Just so I can get to the prince to look at me.” She was giggling now as she felt her mood getting better. She didn’t want to lose track of the two, so she needed to send someone else to go off to find any information for her. She looks back over her shoulder, finding the girls green dress. She still says that she would look much better in red, only difference now though, is she felt it’d be the red of her blood she’d look better in.

    Ren watched as the other seemed to play the loose strands of white hair before tucking she tucked it behind her ear once more. He had to admit he had never met anyone with white hair, his guise allowed him white hair but he didn't use that for anything much for many reasons one of them being that his family were proud of their red hair. He had heard one of them threatened to colour theirs once and the aftermath wasn't something he would ever want, then again there was the Dagger who actually done it and their parents shaved her head. He liked his hair exactly where it was and so wasn't even going to dare dye his hair with anything other than illusions which could be undone in an instant. "I must admit madam, I have never met someone with hair as pure as snow the mystery adds to your own beauty." he said complementing her, there was no dishonesty in his voice, he was truly enamoured by the snowy haired maiden. A smile was upon his face when he had complimented her and though his ears were keen he at that point believed that she was just calling to a summon or someone she was travelling with. He had to admit though if this was the case it was a very strange name, no stranger than his own he guessed to many others.

    As their back was to the fountain he neither Ren nor Emily had noticed the water bubble that was floating above and behind them. "Please madam Saraphina there is no need to frown, such beauty would be ruined and the world need all the beauty it can get don't you think?" he asked her his voice as charming as ever, he didn't like to see people sad and if a small compliment made her smile he could live with the minor inconvenience on his time. He smiled seeing her half curtsy to him "A proper curtsy requires both sides of the dress to be picked up or didn't your etiquette tutor teach you this?" Emily asked with a slight smirk "or are you a girl from a lower cast playing princess because no one else thinks you important enough to see the special you?" she continued her voice held pity for Sara, Ren blinked looking at Emily not believing that she would say something so catty to another "Emily, please, you are a young lady if the mother of Roses found out then you may have issues this season." he reminded the red headed woman that made her freeze remembering she had to be on her best behaviour for now.

    Ren turned his focus back to Sara as she spoke about polished gems being fake and weren't allowed to choose who they ended with. He agreed it was a downside of being born in their world, but it had been this way for a long time and some traditions though beyond archaic in his opinion where followed still because they seemed to work. "Traditions are there to keep bonds strong between families and like dutiful people of our lines we do as is required to keep our family lines continuing." he said her still wore his smile but his eyes told a different story, it was clear this wasn't what he really wanted. He wanted to be with someone he actually cared for, not to be with someone through an agreement because this is what his family wanted or needed. He hated being used in such a way but he was obedient to his families needs regardless on how he felt or just how much weight it put on his young shoulders. "I hope that when my family finally betroths me that my bride to be will be beautiful, kind, cultured and strong." he said his eyes going back to Emily who was hugging into his arm blushing thinking that he was talking about her and he was happy to allow her to believe such a thing as it made her happy.

    As she got on her tip toes and turned he took note of her fingers moving but before he could really comprehend what was going on, he heard a splash and turned to notice Emily was now soaked from head to to and fighting back tears. He hadn't looked around to see where the water had come from, instinctively he removed his blazer and wrapped it around the soaked woman's shoulders "We'll get to a store and then get you dried and into some warm dry clothing." his voice showed he was truly concerned for the woman that he was with at current, without another word he picked her up with ease bridal style. Ren right now was paying Sara no attention whatsoever so everything she was saying was falling on deaf ears "Don't cry my sweetest princess, the world around you will weep too and we couldn't deal with so many tears." he said calmly the girl sniffling as she tried to regain her composure nodding "Okay Apollo." she whispered with a small nod he started to head to the closest boutique so the two could gain new close thanks to what had just transpired completely unaware what was coming their way.

    NOPE OUT,
    His compliment on her hair had gotten her cheeks to blush a bit. Honestly, she thought the girl was going to get upset over him complimenting another, but she also couldn’t give a damn if she did. She had to glance away at his smile, she was trying to not show that she liked it too much. His smile was making her want to kill the girl all that much more. She wanted her spot. And this guy to spoil her like he seemed to be for her. His plea for her to not frown had her pause. Was he honestly saying that for real? She wasn't going to have herself think otherwise. A small smile had cracked on her face, till the girl spoke again about her curtsy. Her eyes went like daggers to her, then a grin was on her face again. “Dear me! I had forgotten others don't curtsy like those from Iceberg do!” She says as she covers her mouth. “You clearly never been to Iceberg and met royalty there.” She giggles. No one really has met any royalty of Iceberg technically, since typically the rumors were one died when they went to the castle to kill the frozen King. “Clearly you've never been taught to hold your tongue and aren't as sweet as you seem to be. That's the second time he's reminded you about the mother of roses with your words.” She muses a bit, swaying her hips from side to side as she stood there.

    His talk of traditions after her gems bit, made her pout. She didn't like that. Traditions were boring. They told her what she should, and shouldn't do. How she should do things, how she couldn’t. She clearly makes a face over that as she rolls her eyes. Technically she herself broke tradition too in Iceberg. She didn't go and protect a village with her magic, or went after the frozen King. She didn't care regardless. A thought came to her mind just before he spoke of who he hoped his bride would be. She smiles sweetly as she shrugs her shoulders. “Traditions can be broken, that easily. Just have to step out of line with one who seems worth it.” She was holding out the hypothetical poisoned apple to him basically, hoping he'd take it. “You could also see about getting a bride on your own. Much better than some rude thing that was thrown at you.” She muses. As the water had fallen on the girl, Saraphina was smiling to herself quietly. But she was miffed about him being so nice to her still after the comments that she had made. Honestly, she figured he’d stop it and leave her be after the comments.

    Over by the fountain, Saraphina sat down on the edge. “Oh! You two mentioned about this Mother of Roses thing a while back. Tell me about it again? I wasn’t listening before." Bertrand and Nadaline look to each other, then to Saraphina. “Madam,” Nadaline started. She taps her chin as she tries to think of it. “The Mother of Roses is a woman who deals with events of the social season for debutants. Parties and dates for people of high positions and wealth. And I suppose she’s a debutante, and he’s on a first day with her… as he’s given her roses. And it might be serious from what it looks like.” She explains to her in a tone that made Sara think she was a teacher almost. “They have an opportunity to be paired up and may possibly court one another in the future if things go well for them.” Saraphina takes a deep breath while putting a slender finger on her bottom lip. “Bertrand. You’re still to find out about her. Her name is Emily. I have faith in you being able to find out about her now. Dig up the worst you can find.” She giggles as she stands up once again. “Yes, m’lady.” He says as he bows to her before leaving the party. These two never dared to disobey her, so she trusted them to go off on their own from time to time.

    The white haired mage starts walking around Hosenka with her servant girl behind her. They seemed like they were roaming around the town like it was nothing, but in reality, at least Nadaline was keeping an eye on the couple while they shopped. “Is something wrong with that girl?” Saraphina giggles as she picks up a fan she saw in a store, covering her face with it while she was grinning behind it. “Well… originally I wanted to take the guy she was with… but then she became a rude little brat, and I just want to get rid of her entirely.” She muses in an ever so sweet voice that it sent chills down Nadaline’s spine. This is exactly why they didn’t dare disobey her. Bertrand came casually walking back to them, bowing to Saraphina before standing straight and clearing his throat. Saraphina raised an eyebrow, lowering the fan as she was waiting for him to speak. “I have found out that, through the Mother of Roses, that Miss Emily Rothsetter is the only daughter of a well to do family.” He says simply. Nadaline rolls her eyes. She could have told her that by the looks of the woman. Then, her twin’s face twisted to that similar to their masters grin. For some reason, that grin made Saraphina feel giddy. He motions for the two women to go to an outdoor café with him quickly. Of course he spilled all he had found while the two sat there, and every word he let slip out about the girl and her family, the wider the grin on Saraphina’s face grew.

    She motions for Nadaline to walk with her after Bertrand finish telling all he knew. All the beautiful secrets that will come out of the closet now. She claps her hands while skipping around the town, enjoying herself all the more while she played her own happy little tune once again. “Prince’s of Silver! Prince’s of Gold! My prince will be strong! My prince will be bold!” The song was never the same, only the beginning. She enjoyed singing it loudly for others to hear, especially when she was happy. She spun herself around momentarily while she was walking, knowing full well she was near Apollo and the wench she wanted the head of. Nadaline held her hands in front of her as she kept her red eyes casted down, she glanced up every so often to make sure no one would bump into her or her mistress. When they approached a jewelry stall, Saraphina picked up a rather gaudy pearl necklace. If the two were to pass by them as she picked it up, she would holds up the strand of pearls to look at it better, and looks over to her black haired servant girl. “Don’t you think this gem on it looks beautiful?” She questions. Nadaline looks up and smiles softly. “Yes, your highness, but it’s a shame that the necklace is ruined by a fake gem though. Having a real, large pearl would have been better, rather than the fake gem stealing from the others to fulfill its wealth...” She replies with quite calmly. Her mistresses game was now going into effect, now if only the girl would take the bait a bit, or show some sort of reaction to it, then it could keep on going, and be even more fun to deal with.

    Ren couldn't help but smile as he seen the light pinkness on the pale cheeks of Sara "That is the perfect look for one that shines as bright as the moon, not a pout." he explained his voice warm but looked to the one he was meant to be escorting who seemed less than happy that he was complimenting another woman and blinked. In honesty he didn't see that he was doing anything wrong, he knew he was Emily's escort but at the same time he did believe that she was being awful to someone just seemed lonely in his mind. "Apollo, we need to go. I'm sure she could be bothering or stalking some other people." Emily commented, it was obvious the comment had caught him off guard, she was being uncharacteristically catty towards the woman who had introduced herself as Saraphina. He got that fashion was a big thing for a women of status but still her acting in such a manner was putting him off her in more ways than one, to the point that he was thinking about speaking to the mother of roses himself. The problem with that was he didn't know the backlash that would happen to his family or him for ruining her season, he hated politics so damned much and yet he was always caught up in it.

    "Emily, I am sure Madam Saraphina is just looking some friends there was no need for that." he said with a strained sigh, he just wanted this day over and done with, he would even deal with his slimy cousin Gabriel over this and that was saying something. "But Apollo..." she said meekly like a scolded child "No. Emily it was very rude. You should be ashamed of yourself, your family have a respectable reputation as philanthropists." he explained making the young red headed woman look down hugging her roses that much closer to her nodding "I'm sorry Sara, I shouldn't have said such mean things to you." she said in a hushed voice still shaking due to being covered in the cold water that fell upon her, she didn't think she done anything wrong but she hated having Apollo angry or disappointed in her, her family was hoping for a union between the two families with a proposal of marriage between their daughter and Apollo. Apollo wasn't really interested in her like that but if he was told by his family that he had to he would abide by it even if he did try oppose it at first. He knew some of his own families secrets and really wish he didn't in all honesty, but when secrets are learned it isn't like the skeletons can go back into the closet and be forgotten about; especially for one like him.

    Emily soon turned her attention back to Sara "I've been to Iceberg before and had tea with the royals, as far as I've seen only little girls curtsy in such a manner." this time the comment wasn't meant to be catty, it was just an observation that the red headed woman made when she had last been there. Apollo couldn't have said one way or another because he had never met nobility from the country of Iceberg. "I've never been to Iceberg to tell the truth, I've heard it's beautiful when there's a blanket of fresh white snow." she smiled his eyes closing "Apparently in the sun light the snow sparkles like diamonds, it's something I would honestly want to see." he said his tone showing almost wishful thought "Oh my family are going after the season is over, you could always come with us if you wanted." she said with a slight blush and giggle "I would love to Emily but I may have business to attend to, I will however talk to my mother and father and see what think about your generous offer." his voice was warm, thing is he knew if his parents agreed there would be an alternate motive and if he didn't bring it up her family might and then it would raise questions as to why he didn't, it wasn't like he could say he forgot, they knew he didn't forget anything. It was a blessing and a curse depending on the situation he swore.

    Apollo turned his gaze back towards Saraphina as she spoke and it seemed things were getting more than a little heated between the two, this was honestly something he could do without and thought that separating them would indeed be the best thing or he was quite sure one of them was going to be killed. "I hope we meet once again madam Saraphina, until then I have a beautiful flower to take care of before she gets ill." His voice had never changed since he had started speaking to the young woman with hair of snow. He smiled and gave a brief a bow before moving forward before stopping hearing her words when it came to traditions "It isn't so simple madam Seraphina but I do hope my bride will be smart and sweet." to him beauty wasn't a needed thing but it seemed to help in their world to get things needed to survive or push forward, with that he walked on allowing her to continue about her day as he continued doing what he needed to with Emily for the day truly unaware what she was up to.

    He went into the boutique and the sales assistants rushed over instantly with some towels and took Emily off to get warm and a change of clothing, Apollo looked around the show room and seen that it wasn't just women's clothing the done, he hadn't realised that he himself would need a change "Mr Dagger..." Apollo turned around "There's no need for formalities. Mr. Dagger is my father, please call me Ren." he said to the young brunette who was holding out a towel for him "Oh, thank you miss..." he said moving to take it "I'm Silvia" she said with a peppy voice "Well it's nice to meet you Silvia" he said starting to dry himself off "I think you should perhaps find a new dry set of clothing." Silvia said making Ren nod and head to have a look at what there was in his own size. It was an odd feeling usually his suits were always tailored to fit like a glove but he would have to make do with what he could get giving the circumstances. He looked over the finely tailored suits but nothing really seemed to grab his attention, it wasn't that he himself was overly fussy about it but he was still a member of the Dagger family and had a reputation to upkeep due to it.

    Eventually he settled on a white shirt and royal blue suit, taking it to a changing room he moved to see it it fit. It wasn't perfect but it was good enough, with a few alterations when he got home it would likely pass as a casual suit of his family but he definitely wouldn't be wearing it to board meetings or social occasions. Removing the tags and picking up his wet clothing he moved to pay for his new clothing and have his former ones folded and placed into a bag. Emily had already been standing there in a brand new green dress, with white and baby pink frills. He couldn't say he really liked the dress himself but he smiled "You look beautiful Emily." he said knowing her happiness is what counted right now, the girl blushed and looked to him "Where are my manners? I will be paying for this dress too." he said wondering why the hell he was paying for a dress she could pay for herself but again he knew it wasn't uncommon for escorts to dote on the debutantes they were partnered to. Again the other dress would have been placed into a dress bag. "Please send this to her home here in Hosenka." he said knowing that this was one of Emily's favourite boutiques they would already know her address "Of course Ren." Silvia said writing a tag to put on the bag so it would be send within the hour.

    When done Emily was holding onto his arm again and they walked out into the street once more "Where would you like to go?" he asked her as they continued walking stopping briefly as he heard Saraphina's voice talking over jewellery with one of her staff it would seem. He quirked an eyebrow not understanding the conversation "Any idea what they're talking about? Jewellery isn't my forte unless buying it for someone." he said to her, Emily herself shook her head as even if her family was embezzling from others she wasn't privy to that information. "It's a hideous necklace though, even from here I can tell it is cheap and wouldn't suit her at all. I see her as an opal or sapphire type in all honesty." she said with a shrug as she moved on not caring if she was heard by the pair or not. Ren could only blink as he took her word on what gems would suit the pale woman as they headed for the main square.

    NOPE OUT,
    As she was complimented more, she felt her cheeks warm up more as she blushed. She honestly wasn’t expecting him to compliment her like so. A small snicker was shot towards Emily though. As she mentioned stalking, Saraphina tilted her head a bit. “I think you need to read up on what stalking is. Stalking would be deliberately following you without you seeing me typically. And here I’m right in front of you in plain sight. Pardon me, but you’re not too bright, are you?” She couldn’t help but question with a small giggle. She pauses though as Apollo talked to the girl, even seeming to scold her slightly for her being rude to her. She couldn’t help but feel triumphant about that. ‘Eat that.’ She had thought to herself with a small snicker. As the girl apologised to her, Saraphina just smiled to the girl. “It’s quite fine.” When she says she had tea with the royals, Saraphina laughed rather loudly as she leans forward with her hands on her hips. “You lie… No one goes even near the royals of Iceberg for fear of death being done to them. Maybe you’ve forgotten that we’ve been under the rule of the Frozen King for quite some time now. And all who even dares to go to him, dies.” She holds her hands behind her back now while she tilts her head, just waiting for her come back.

    As the two seemed to be making arrangements to go to her home country in front of her, she frowns to them. She felt it was kind of rude of them, but no matter, he was telling her farewell at the moment. She takes a deep breath and smiles slightly, but it didn’t have much emotion in it after their little talk, or him calling Emily something sweet again. She gave a better curtsy this time before she had started to leave them, but had paused at his comment of what he hoped his bride would be and that traditions weren’t that simple to go against. When they had begun talking about the pearl necklace, Saraphina nods to Nadaline. She agreed though. “Yes. While it’s fake, it still looks nice regardless.” She giggles as she puts the necklace back. Emily's lack of reaction towards how Nadaline spoke of the fake pearl, made the white haired mage frown. That wasn’t quite fun now… but it was slightly nice that the girl had said the types of gems that suited her better. Those were her favorite gems, but she still didn’t care for this girl. Playing this game was starting to get harder to do now. Maybe she could bother them some more. It was kind of nice to see Apollo getting upset at her. Show him her ugly side she seemed to not be able to keep under control. Then again, she also had Bertrand fetching something of great interest to them, and planting seeds within it as well.

    Saraphina was trying to think of something else she could do when suddenly Bertrand had come up behind her. His arms went around her head and he placed a necklace around her neck, holding it there while Saraphina turned to look in a mirror. The blue sapphire gem was surrounded by little diamonds around it, making it pop from the somewhat clear gems. “Your highness,” He started, smiling a bit. “Bertrand! I thought you were off doing that errand?” “I was, but I saw you over here and this necklace, and instantly thought that this beautiful necklace was perfect for you. It suits you rather well… It’s elegant, beautiful, and quite frankly, it makes me think of home at night, with how the moon shines on the snow.” He couldn’t help but tell her. Saraphina wasn’t expecting him to say that, and smiles softly into the mirror at the shiny gem upon her neck. Nadaline clears her throat. This wasn’t planned at all really. “And, I feel your prince will love it on you. It wouldn’t take a scientist to know about elegant beauty, especially if it was put next to something fake. Your prince will know instantly like it’s nothing. Trust me.” Nadaline put her hands on Saraphina’s arms, smiling at her master in the mirror. She looks over to Bertrand as Sara was blushing rather deeply from how the two were acting. She reached her hand up and put it on the necklace slightly, starting to forget about Apollo and Emily for a moment as she admired the necklace around her neck. She wanted it now. A smile grew on her face as she turns and starts to walk away from the stall.

    This time, no one had freaked out, as Bertrand had secretly bought the necklace before he had placed it on Saraphina’s neck. He knew the girl would fall for the shiny thing rather quick and would end up just taking it like the klepto she was, might as well not tell her he bought it. He then bowed a little. “Your highness, I’ll excuse myself again to continue the errand you sent me on.” He tells her as he straightens up and turns on his heel. Saraphina gasps as she looks to Nadaline. She nearly had forgotten. Nadaline just smiles to her and nods. “Don’t worry, your prince is closer than you think. You just have to wait.” She glances to the side and Sara follows the red gaze, seeing she was looking after Apollo. The twins hadn’t been rather silent about what they said either, not that Saraphina was going to complain. “Why don’t we go to the spa? I heard that they’re rather great here. The best in the world.”

    Saraphina taps her chin as she debates on the question. She kind of wanted to, but she also didn’t want to lose the two just yet. “How about later I’m kind of hungry now. Never know when Bertrand will be done with his errand anyways.” With that, she begun skipping off, humming her song once more as she passed by Apollo and Emily. Nadaline follows after her, and smiles to them as she gives a curtsy while walking. “Pardon us.” She let her eyes trail on the red headed male as she smirked and was quickly behind Sara once again. She could see why her master wished the girl to be gone from his presence after getting a closer look of him. The two women had gone to an outdoor café again that was not too far ahead of the couple, and sat down at a table for four. Saraphina had sat down where she could let everyone see her necklace over her guild mark as it sat just above it as if her mark grew from the necklace. “Do you think Bertrand will be quick with bringing him here for us?” Saraphina’s purplish pink eyes glance at a menu. Nadaline sighs as she sat herself next to her queen to not block her. “Yes, Your Highness. And I doubt she’d be too fond of seeing him here today of all days too.” She simply replied, shrugging her shoulders.

    Ren smiled gently seeing the pale woman blushing to his words, the contrast in colour to him was beautiful. To him it was like a delicate rose laying on the freshly fallen snow, it was truly a marvel to see and how he wished he could keep the blush where it was currently, for once he found another use for the memory he was born with the image would remain forever fresh within his mind. It was when she spoke he was brought out of his daydream sighing silently "Please, there is no need for such beautiful roses to show thorns." he said his blue eyes glistening in the sunlight as he looked to the other, his eyes would have almost have looked like two crystal pools of water. "Thorns take from beauty after all as no one can get close enough to enjoy it in all it marvels." he said looking between then, he was hoping that he could defuse the situation as he could see this getting to the point that blood would be spilt and he was more worried about Emily if it came to that as she wasn't a magic user. He suspected this was one of the other reasons that he was picked to be her escort.

    He was unsure if the apology or the acceptance of said apology were indeed sincere so could only took them at face value. He already didn't want to be doing this and this was just adding to the stress and internal annoyance he was feeling but remained calm, his smile was ever present no matter what was going on. He knew that image was everything and were Emily may have been fine to disgrace her family he wanted no part of it when it came to his own. He could only imagine the punishment that would come from doing something so stupid, he had seen what came from his brother messing up and how their weasel of a slime ball cousin Gabriel enjoyed it when it happened. He still wondered if putting a hit on him was against the family rules, he was against collateral damage and killing without reason but he would make an exception to that rule when it came to his cousins. They deserved everything that came their way and then some, he still remembered the meeting that happened only a few months ago. How his elder brother Artemis wanted to sock him one and how he had made him squirm under the onslaught of his words for insulting Lynus when he hadn't been their to defend himself.

    Did he like being under the ever watchful eye of the man? Of course not. It was like having a second shadow, the elder man had been with him since he was three years old and had been personally picked by his grandfather. This fact alone made him wonder what was going on even now as he knew his grandfather had standards that no one would ever be able to get to, he was a straight A+ student taking advance AP classes, was on the board and had moved to collage by age of ten and quickly moved to university by the age of twelve because nothing seemed to challenging to him. This was be cause of his memory, he only needed to read or hear something once and he remembered freshly when he needed to recall it. He had no idea why he was like this because it caused him nothing but issues, he was fifteen at current but had no real friends because he was never in schools long enough to make them and who wanted to make friends with a kid who should still be in high school and could run rings around them at the best of times.

    Emily looked to Ren as if begging him to believe her claim about meeting royalty of Iceberg, in honesty he had no reason to doubt her as she seemed quite well travelled, that was until Sara spoke about it being impossible due to death following anyone who came into the kings presence. "Perhaps it wasn't the king but a noble of the same line." he said trying to find the middle ground, he knew Emily was a few years older than himself so didn't really want to insult her but knew that many royal lines had more than one child and the current sovereign would always try have an heir so the family line would continue. He knew this as his own family worked in a similar way. Emily tapped her bottom lip for a moment "Maybe, I was only four at the time." she said with a thoughtful tone, she soon was smiling and giggling again which made him happy as he didn't want her to return back to her chaperone upset in anyway, it would look bad on him. It saddened him that no matter what he was doing there was always strings and etiquette to follow but these were the things that came with his name, as much as he would love to just run off and forget it he knew that he would always be found in the end. His little trip to the old Black Rose guild hall proved that to him.

    Ren looked at the fake gaudy necklace that had been shown and remained silent on the matter, he honestly didn't think it suited her, it was to bulky and the cheapness was easy to see but some people seen such things as fashionable he guessed. In general he didn't know much about fashion trends be it clothing or accessories, he was a teenager after all, he knew what he liked that wouldn't make his family hide him like he was a disgrace they never wanted to mention. As for jewellery he knew what to pick out for gifts for people like his mother but if he was to pick something out for a woman he didn't know that much about he would fail epicly, because of this he made a mental note that he would have to take a course on such things at a later date. He was about to step away when he heard a male's voice talk to Sara and seen the elegant necklace within his hand, he had to admit it was unlike the pearl necklace that she herself had picked up it was exquisite to look at, even from this distance he could tell it would suit her far better as like her it seemed delicate and yet held a boldness to it that just couldn't be ignored. He had to admit, he liked it.

    Seeing that she was starting to do the same he had done the same knowing that it was likely already paid for or like with many businesses or nobles a invoice would be sent to the place or residence or business to be paid at a later date. He had to deal with the woman he was escorting at the moment, which he now done quickly as they headed towards the next store Emily wanted to look at, he had no idea why one person needed so much clothing, more so because it would likely only be worn once and then never used again. He was starting to believe that rich women believed their clothing were like wedding dresses with how they acted. Hearing a familiar voice asking for them to pardon them, he stepped aside bring Emily with him so she didn't get in the way "Hello again." he said politely, Emily on the other hand just grumbled she was getting sick of the white haired mage always being around, in her mind she was ruining what was suppose to be a perfectly good day in more ways than one.

    "Apollo..." Emily finally said with a happy smile on her face mimicking her tone "Yes Emily?" he as with a confused tone wondering what she wanted now. The red headed woman pointed to a high end restaurant "Could we go there? I'm kind of hungry." she asked him sweetly, his eyes used her hand as a guide as to see what she wanted. He seen the name and knew it wasn't exactly a cheep place to eat but nodded, he had already been told the do's and don'ts and this was manageable "Yes, of course Emily." he said walking with her into the place, he looked around and it looked like a fusion of the Midi culture with a Fiorian twist, it wasn't quite his taste but it was still eye pleasing with the hand painted pictures on the wall and the bright colours "Do you have a reservation?" a female wearing what looked like an elegant pale blue, royal blue and white three layer kimono with a white and royal blue obi. Apollo shook his head "No, we do not. Do you have a table however?" he asked the woman who checked her book nodding "Yes, of course please follow me." she said guiding them deep into the building having them seat at a table for two before handing them a menu "Is there anything you would like to drink?" she asked with a warm tone "Jasmine pearl tea with honey please" he replied "I'll have a glass of red wine." Emily said with a smile the woman bowed to get what they had requested.

    Apollo picked up his menu and started reading "Do you think it was wise to order wine?" he asked looking over the lip of the menu, watching how Emily seemingly was struggling with what was on it "I'll be fine, I normally drink wine with a meal." she said with a big smile, all he could do was shake his head a little as he let out a silent sigh of disapproval. He wasn't against people having a drink but it was a little off putting she was ordering alcohol so early in the day, especially on their first meeting. He honestly didn't care at this point, he would be reporting everything to the Mother of Roses as to him Emily wasn't the type of woman who should be coming out when there were likely better candidates. He had also decided that if she wasn't removed then he would remove himself as an escort this season, more so if he was unable to be switch who he was to escort. He knew he had choice in this matter, well as much choice as his family would allow him but could already tell that Emily would be bad news thanks to everything he had witnessed since they had met. She was rude to people, she was catty, she drank, she was willing to accuse without evidence, she was demanding, she drank when it wasn't appropriate. In honesty he just wanted this 'date' over and done with as quickly as possible, he sure as hell wasn't going to take her on a shopping spree, if she wanted shoes, dresses, accessories and the like he would escort her like he was suppose to but he was sure as hell not covering the bill.

    Nope Out,
    Saraphina blinked as she heard Apollo talk of roses showing thorns, blushing slightly as she pouts and looks away for a moment. When she was apologized to, and she accepted it, she left it be for now. As Apollo suggested a noble of the Frozen Kings line, Saraphina just snorted and shrugged her shoulders. “I highly doubt it still, as no one knows even the face of the king… or if the king is even a king. Like I said, all who go there, are more than likely dead. No one returns from trying to dethrone the king. Maybe you saw a noble or aristocrat in general, but by no means, the direct and close royals and nobles to the throne.” She grinned as she tilts her head to the side, not letting her smile waver.

    After Sara had received her necklace from her servant, and she started on her way past Apollo and Emily, she heard him speak to her. She glanced over her shoulder and flashed them a smile while delicately waving her fingers at them before continuing her skipping away. As she sat at the café and waited for her male servant with her female one, the two noticed Apollo and Emily going by them and into another restaurant. “That place seems stuffy.” “Bet the food is still good though.” Nadaline had leaned her elbow on the table a bit and put her cheek in her hand. With Saraphina, she didn’t have to be so formal as she used to once upon a time. The two sat there a bit while they waited on Bertrand to return to them. It only took a little while longer for him to return, and had himself a guest trailing behind him. The man seemed relatively well dressed in a grey suit, but he wasn't flashy as he walked about.

    The man's pale purple eyes fell on Saraphina as he approached the table with the servant. A grin was on the girls face as she sat there, folding her hands over one another on the table. “Hello! I’m Saraphina, I’m so glad you could make it! I’m glad Bertrand found you~! Have you heard about your princess?” Her eyes were wide with excitement as she giggled a bit. Bertrand helped the man sit down, then sat next to him from across the girls. “This is the right guy, right Bertrand.” “Yes, miss. I got the right guy. Don’t worry. My connections never fail.” Bertrand snickers as he glances to the other guy. He had a hat on his head and a mask covering the bottom half of his face as he looks around. “Why do I have a feeling this is about Emily?” Saraphina looked over to Bertrand, who simply grinned. “I said nothing about her, your majesty.” He held his hands up and looks to the guy. “Introduce yourself. I’m kind of dying to hear about your full relationship with Emily though. Since she’s… you know… a debutante today and all.”

    “What?” The man hissed as he glared at Bertrand, who simply blinked, but shrugged his shoulders. “She never told me that she was going to be doing that this season…” He grumbles as he looks to the two women across from him. Saraphina raised an eyebrow as she smirks a bit. “I’m Johnathan Moore. I’ve been dating Emily for quite some time… She didn’t want to go public with this…” He mutters as he looks to his lap. Saraphina raised an eyebrow to him, then leans forward. “You’re saying she has someone… and here she is going on a date? Oh my heavens. I think I’m finding these rules a little bit more fun now. Just for now though. Are you going to let her continue this date though? I know where she’s at. I honestly would hate to see you become just a mere lover when she has the face of someone else courting her. Your eyes are too beautiful to simply be a shadow.” She muses to him cheerfully. The white haired queen had paused in her talking to see if he would react much. Most he had done was scowl at the thought of being nothing but a lover, but he seemed to be a bit interested after she mentioned she knew where she was at. “She’s here in Hosenka right now, that is, if you wish to see her. Emily that is.” He pulled down the mask covering his mouth and looked to Saraphina dead in the eyes. “Take me to her. Now.” He demanded.

    Saraphina had gripped her hands together a bit, but Nadaline put a hand on her mistress’s lap to remind her of something. Saraphina takes a deep breath. That was right. The whole purpose of this was Nadaline challenging her to not kill someone immediately and at least plan things out every once in a while. And her having a target of a debutante was perfect. Nadaline had suggested doing something like this at the guild hall some time ago as a way to keep her mistress’s abilities up to take over some areas stealthily from the inside, or with a swift knockdown at the end. They would have to wait and see how this went down though this time.

    The white haired mage grinned as she slowly starts to stand. “They went in a restaurant not too far from here. Come. They’ve probably started eating by now. Don’t want them to go too far away, yes?” She giggles as she starts walking out of the café. Nadaline was right behind her, and Bertrand started to stand up, allowing Johnathan to go before him as they made their way to the restaurant. When they approached it, Saraphina purses her lips. “It looks super flashy…” She confessed aloud. She moved to go right in, and looked around quickly. She wasn’t familiar with this setting that they were in, and wasn’t sure what this place fully was. “Hello, do you have a reservation?” The hostess asked. Nadaline clears her throat and bowed slightly to her. “No, missus, we would like to see if there is a table available for four though.” While the woman had looked through the book, Johnathan removed his hat and was seeming like he was looking harder than Saraphina had been for Emily. Without his hat on, his blond locks softly framed his slightly tanned face. The hostess nods as she looks to them. “We have a table. Please, follow me this way.” She guides the four to a table near the middle of the building, and lets them sit. Saraphina managed to see Emily before she sat down. “Johnathan, why don’t you sit here instead?” She questions, smiling as she stands up once again. Where she was, one had a direct line of sight of the couple they had been slightly tailing. As soon as the two switched places, and had their menus, Johnathan had spotted Emily himself and stood up.

    Sara put her hand on his arm and giggles some. “Don’t be too rash. Settle down with us and eat a bit before you do anything.” The hostess looks between them before she clears her throat while Johnathan seated himself quietly once again. “Would you care for something to drink?” Nadaline and Bertrand smiled after Saraphina nodded to them quietly. “My brother and I would like to have some sencha tea please?” She muses happily before glancing towards Johnathan. “A glass of red wine please.” He replies before Saraphina smiles sweetly. “I’ll have some iced water.” With their order of drinks in, the hostess nods and heads off to get their drinks. Johnathan looked towards Saraphina and frowns. “Why are you making me wait when she’s right there?" “I once heard that to woo a woman, you should ignore her after you acknowledge her. I don’t remember where I saw that, but I’m wanting to try it out here!” She giggles as she was a smidge loud. Nadaline softly chuckles to her mistress, knowing she was rather excited in this place. Besides her position, and unintentional alignment, the servant was aware of her mistresses want to meet new people and have fun with them, making friends. Her guild had some of that, new friends. Or in Saraphina’s eyes, the members of her guild were friends at least.

    Her purplish pink eyes look over to her servants as they waited for their drinks. Saraphina then gasped and reached her hand over to Johnathan once again. “You know what you should do when you see her again? You should go up and pretend like you almost didn’t recognize her, talk to her a little bit, then maybe casually play off that you won’t bother her for a while after you’ve made your presence known again.” She giggles as she put her hand on her cheek. “Wait till after they get their food though… It’d be a bit more interesting then.” Johnathan takes a deep breath as he looks to the fair girl smiling excitedly at him. She seemed to be getting a kick out of this. Well, he was probably gonna break up with her anyways. Might as well have fun with this. Their drinks had arrived and everyone started slightly sipping on them while they waited to look through the menus. Sara’s eyes watched Johnathan as he waited for their food to get to their table, quietly mingling with her servants as Saraphina gingerly swirled her ice water with her finger. The coolness slightly reminded her of how cool it could be at home. Honestly? The young queen wished she could go home. But she doubt she’d be welcomed by many. Maybe her parents? Or they’d tell her to go away again. She would just have to wait and see if she tried.

    After Apollo and Emily received their food, Johnathan downed his wine and takes a deep breath. He was waiting till they ate some more before he excused himself and walked over to the couples table. “Emily?” He says rather cautiously. “Wow! You look so beautiful. I didn’t expect to see you here today. Thought you were busy with something for your family? Though… I guess you kind of are.” He glanced over to Apollo. He then clears his throat as he looks back to Emily with a bit of longing in his eyes. While he was going to break things off with her, he was going to feel bad about it. “I suppose I should get going and stop bothering you… It was nice seeing you miss Emily.” He bowed to her as he turned to leave them. He wanted to see the reaction that Emily would have to seeing him, and simply wished she’d crack under it since it had been just yesterday that they saw one another.
