she sees the Hotel.A woman rushed infront of her almost tripping*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Daniel Jackson
Age: 22
Appearance: Dark brown hair and blue eyes
Bio: Graduated with honors on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
Daniel has made a great number of innovations on the fields of
Artificial Intelligence and Neural Networks. He has been approached on
many ocasions by various government agencies with job offers but he has
declined all of them for unknown reasons.

* Daniel walks into the hotel and towards the reception desk. *

Daniel: Hi, I have a reservation for Daniel Jackson.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

sarah:Just a second Ellone*sarah turns and smiled at the new comer and
pulls out a Card key*Hello,welcome to Hailings hotel,Here's you're Card
key sir room 102 on second floor*hands the Card key to Daniel

*Ellone turns around and looks at the Hotel*

Ellone:Its pretty Big

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name Richard Cory (uses an alias Allan Baker)
Age: 28
Hight: 6'4"
Weight: 195
Hair: copper bond
Eyes: green
occupation: Investment banking and industries

Born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth, son of a prominent
banker. Rick grew up pampered, spoiled, and arrogant. Highly intelligent
he graduated from the best private university with Magna Cum Laude in
statistical analysis, buisness management and investment management.
Taking over his fathers empire after his parents death when their jet
plane crashed, Rick went from very rich, to incredibly rich, to I don't
care anymore. One morning, he left a note for his office staff that he
would be in touch, walked out and pitched his cell phone in the river.
He packed a few belongings, and drove away. In a small town along the
way, he nearly gave the young owner of a small car lot a heart attack by
trading his new Caddilac CTX for a three year old Pontiac Grand Prix,
even up. Rick just wants to get away from the sufficating pampering, the
artificiality of the high society, the sickening hoards of "too pretty"
gold diggers. He wanted to meet some real people. Maybe a girl who would
like him for himself, not because she sees dollars everytime she looks
in his green eyes. But being pampered and spoiled, can he change his
ways, can he learn to be a real person? Or will he fail and go back to
his unhappy life.


(Rick looks at the Hotel, well, it's not the Ritz, but it's not a dump
either. Might be a good place to stay for a while, if the people are decent.)

Rick walks up to the registration desk: I'd like a room, my name is
Allan.....ah, Baker, Allan Baker.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Sarah Gasp,while Ellone just look at her strangely*

Sarahoh sorry but you look a lot like Richard cory...and...um

Ellone*Rolled her eyes*:same old Sarah

Ellone:Sarah?before you go to wonderland how about his keys and mine please

*Sarah look at Ellone then nodded she pulls out two cardkeys.she hand
out one to Alan and one to Ellone*

Sarah*looks at Alan*:Your in room 109 its on the third floor.*looks at
Ellone*Yours is temporary Ellone,your in room 106

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Ya, that's m......I, ah, get that all the time, I must look lie
the guy.
* Allan looks around for a porter to carry his suitcase.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel takes a look at his card key and turns around, almost tripping
into Allan. *

Daniel: Ah, I'm sorry, I didn't see you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*The porter came and took Allan's suitcase to his room while sarah
stares dremingly at Allan.Ellone rolled her eys once more*

Ellone:why is my room temporary?

Sarah*not getting her eyes of Allan*:I dunno its was Miss Kate orders

Ellone:before your eyes fall out and then your brain goes to dreamland
can i know where the pool is?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Hey y.......Ah, it's ok, I guess..........My names Baker, ah
Allan Baker. *Unsure what to say, Allan turns and hands $10 tip to the
porter, then turns to Daniel.* I guess....well, I'll see you later. *And
enters his room.* (I almost chewed the guy out. I'll have to be careful,
I don't even know how to act like these people. How do you respond to
that? Maybe I should just relax by the pool and act like the other
people. That girl was asking about the pool, geeze, even these women
can't follow a hotel map, they're all alike.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Nicolas (Nick) Smith
Age: Appears to be 25
Appearance: Tall and wellbuilt. Has dark hair and very tan skin.
Bio: Very little is known about Mr. Smith except he is an agent of the
United States CIA. Assumed to be on vacation, he is due back to his
position in the Caribbean in 1 month.

*Nicolas opens his door and see another across the hall slam shut.
Standing in between is a man, Nick judges him to be about his own age.*

Nick: Hey I heard some commotion from out here, everything allright?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel took his backpack (he liked to travel light) and went to his
room. *

Daniel: Ah! Finally some peace!

* And some free time to think about that new project, with no government
people bothering me. Daniel put the backpack in the bed and took out a
small laptop. It's a nice day outside... Maybe I'll go by the pool. He
checked for his wallet and headed down towards the pool. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick stands there in the doorway and watches as the man in the hall
goes into his room and comes back out minutes later, all ready to go
down to the pool.*

Nick: (to himself) (Strange, you'd think he'd say hello at least...)

*Spurred to go walk around the hotel grounds, Nick leaves his room and
follows Daniel to the elevator back to the ground floor.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan dresses for the pool,then looks in his bag.* (Wallstreet Journal,
no, ah, a mystery novel, I haven't read one in years.) *Allan smiles and
goes out to the pool.* (No bar out here? Darn, cheep place, you'd think
they would at least have a few ammenities.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:see ya sarah

*Ellone went to her room and wore her blue Bikini.she sigh as she looks
at her in the Mirror.Aunt lauren took my swimsuit!!!!i can't go out like
this...but i do want to go swimming

*she goes out to the pool,she looks at it and smile not bad a 15 meter
pool.next to her was the restaurant.i'll eat latershe stood staright
before Making a perfect dive.gliding under the water before doing the
freestyle stroke.as she nears the other end of the pool she does the
tumble turn for her to go back,this time she change her stroke to
breastroke.she did 4 laps without stopping.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel, deciding not to let anything or anyone ruin his "vacations",
walks around oblivious of those around him until he sees Ellone diving
into the pool. He stares at her swimming fo ra few minutes then looks
around and notices the guy following him. Why do I have this feeling
that I won't get any work done... *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone stops and went to the near side of the pool.Not looking she got
out quickly without knowing that Daniel was In front of her.out of
surprise she sees daniel and is slipped on the floor*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel quickly tries to catch her but ends up triping and cushioning
her fall. The laptop lands on the garden next to him. *

Daniel: A-Are you alright?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:yeah i think so*stands up quickly*oh im so sorry*offers her hand*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan sits on a lounge chair and watches the girl swimming in the pool.
(She's a pretty good swimmer, must be why she has such a nice shape. I
wonder if that girl from the front desk is around, she seemed nice,
maybe she would get a drink for me. hmm, nobody around when you need them.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel Ellone's hand and stands up quickly. *

Daniel: It's okay, it's okay. ... Where's my laptop?

* Daniel looks around franctically and finds it in the garden. He picks
it up. *

Daniel: It doesn't looks damaged.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:Um hey your that guy earlier at the reception right?um Daniel i
think...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Uh, yeah, Daniel Jackson. Good to meet you, miss...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan sees Sarah walking by: Say you, girl, yes you.

Sara looks around, (Oh, it's him) and smiles brightly: Can I help you sir?

Allan: Yes, would you get me a margarita from the bar........mmm,
please, ah (notices name tag) Sarah. (Asking and thanking people are a
rather new concept to someone use to just giving orders. Allan isn't
really sure how to fit in.)

Sarah: Well, um.....sure, I guess. *Turns and leaves for the bar.* (I'm
not a waitress, but then, he's kinda cute, seems a little stiff though.
I wonder where he's from?)

Allan watches her walk away. (Mmm, not bad looking girl, cute smile and
such light blue eyes. Wonder what she's like in...........Maybe a blue
party gown, and with a makeover by Franciene's. No, then she'd be just
like those fawning, giggling girls that hang all over you at the
parties. Not half a brain among the lot. Well, Bob always tells me I
should just pick one that's good in bed and dump her when I get tired of
her. That seems so unsatisfying an idea, there must be more than that,
at least I hope so.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone*smiles*:Ellone sanders,im pleased to meet you Daniel*sees sarah
walking to the bar and Allan's looking at her*(why is sarah walking to
the bar?i was sure she was coming this way?)

*Nick walks over to the bar, grabs a bottle of vodka, leaves well enough
money, and procedes to sit down on a lawn chair next to Allan. He pulls
out the day's crossword and begins to fill it in while pouring himself a
drink.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Well, I... Ah, I'll just by over there, then. See you later?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:Um yeah*smiles at Daniel*I'll see you....

?????/:Elle?

*sigh as she sees a woman a bit older than her*

Ellone:Jennifer

*Jennifer smirk as she walked towards Ellone and Daniel*

Ellone:I see you havent changed a bit

Jennifer:well you on the other hand....you've grown to be a fine woman

Ellone:are you done

*Jennifer looks at Daniel,smirking*

Jennifer:Is this your boyfriend?

Ellone:EH!*looks angrily at Jennifer before diving into the water*

Jennifer*sigh*:its simpler if you have just said no*looks at Daniel from
toe to head*what's a handsome man like you doing with that woman?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Wow, I so do NOT want to get involved in this cat fight. *

Daniel: Nothing much yet-- I mean, nothing at all, just passing by.

* CRAP! That phrase completely bypassed my "security check". Better bail
out. *

Daniel: Erm, I was just going now, ok? Later.

* Daniel turned around and walked quickly towards the bar. He ordered a
light beer and sat on a nearby table next to the pool. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone continue to swim this time she did more strokes and more faster*

jennifer:your loss hun*she looks at Ellone swimming*As expected from the
sanders..*she walks inside the hotel*

*Ellone on the other hand was in deep thought*

how dare she humiliate me like that!!!!oooh always a troublemaker!!!damn
you jennifer!!!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan looks at Nick, (straight vodka, geeze, no taste, or he's a Russian.
That other guy, did he say Daniel Jackson? I should know that
name........Mmm, engineering or something, I'm sure I have a file on my
laptop, I'll check later.)

*Sarah looks over Allan as she returns, he's back to reading his book.
(Hmm, wonder what he does for a living. The way he was dressed and the
way he acts, like Ellone use to say, he looks like old money.) She laughs
slightly.*

Sarah: Here's your drink sir.

Allan, not looking up: Just put it there..........*Looks up* Oh, thank
you, ah, Sarah. You can just call me Allan if you like. *Allan reaches
for his wallet* (How much is that? Three fifty. I'll give her a ten and
tell her to keep it. No, wait, then she might think I'm a rich person.
How much should a person give as a tip?). *Allan hands her five dollars.*
Here, you can keep the change.

Sarah smiles: Why thank you sir, err, Allan. *Sarah turns to go see her
friend Ellone. She looks at the bill in her hand.* (He's a strange one,
I'm sure he was going to hand me a ten, it's like he doesn't know how to
act. He's trying to hard to be nice. *chuckles* Maybe he's a foreigner
or something.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone got out of the pool once again but this time in a bad mood*

Sarah:well someone got out of the wrong side of the pool*laughs*

Ellone*glares at Sarah angrily*:whatever i need to sit*A woman came and
brought her a towel then she went back inside*

Sarah:Their always watching Elle

Ellone:whatever,i just

Sarah:lets go at the Bar

Ellone:you just want a reason to see that guy Allan

Sarah:please im on my break come on Elle for me*Ellone sigh as she nods
to her friend.They both walked and stood nearby Allan well the other
side((nick sat the other side so))*

Ellone:can i have some cold water please

Sarah:i thought you wanted to drink

Ellone:yeah aren't i ordering one

Sarah*shook her head*:Elle you havent change a bit

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel chugs down half his beer, opens his laptop and starts it,
letting out a relieved sigh when he sees it booting up normally. He
waits for the OS to finish loading and then starts checking his mail
through the hotel's wireless internet connection. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Sarah looks at Allan and smile*

Sarah:Um hi ...sir....um i mean Allan i

*Ellone rolled her eyes as she walked infront of Allan*

Ellone: Hi,um Allan right? Im Sarah's friend Ellone and we were wondering
if you would join us in a drink or something

i really dont think sarah should be interested in this guy...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan smiles at Sarah, then looks up at Ellone, (Pretty stuck up acting
for a little girl. Ya, I saw the look. Well, it's not like I haven't had
to deal with snotty rich kids before. But that Sarah, she seems,
genuinely, a little shy, that's kind of cute, I guess I'll join them,
see what she's like.)

Allan: Now I'm not sure what that "something" might be, but I'll join
you for a drink. Get to know each other a bit. We'll see where it goes
from there.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone: excuse me? we'll see where....mmmf *Sarah covered Ellones mouth*

Sarah: um excuse Ellone, she got out of the wrong side of the pool *Sarah
sat next to Allan smiling while Ellone just shook her head*

Ellone: yeah whatever *she sat next to sarah at the side so she wouldnt
hear or get in any conversation with Allan*

(what does he think he is!!!!!Rich bastards!!!they all are the same!!!no
matter how hard he tries to hide it i can see right through this guy...a
rich idiot....but what's making me angry is that sarah is ignoring all
the sighs!!!!)

Sarah: so what brings you to Hailing's Hotel? *smiles* a Holiday perharps
or just a bussiness trip?
((Sarah is sitting next to allan where is free ,ellone next to Sarah))

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: I guess you could call it an extended vacation. I can keep up
with things on the net. This looked like a nice place so I decided to
try it. So far I'd say it's quite nice. *Gives Sarah a warm smile.* Then
looks at Ellone, at least mostly.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone, (i hope jennifer doesnt come here!! wait...im bored i dont mind beating
the ....okay violence isnt the answer...yeah right!!!!!)

Ellone*smiles*: what to do? what to do?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick lies on his sunchair trying to get a tan. He has dark sunglasses
on and pretends to be asleep but in reality he is wide awake. The entire
time he's been next to Allen he has had a constantly nagging feeling
that he has heard Allen's voice before.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: It seems your friend, Ellone, doesn't think much of me. (What do
you say to a girl like Sarah? I can't just spout some Wall Street
"wisdom" or talk about the latest Washington political garbage..... She
really does have a cute smile.)

Allan: Well Sarah, are you still in college, or have you graduated?

Sarah: I have another year of college to go. This is my summer job, it
helps pay my tuition.

Allan: I see, what are you majoring in?

Sarah: Buisness managment, someday I would like to run a hotel like this
one.....Of my own. *Sarah looks down and blushes a little.*

Allan smiles: That's interesting. I'm in managment myself. I, ah, do
some consulting for some firms. It's really kind of worn me out, I guess
I needed to take some time off. *Allan laughs* I guess I'm a victim of
executive burn out. Or I'm just lazy. (Man, a cute college girl with
dreams of the future. I remember when I had dreams. Maybe this will lead
to "something".)

Allan: I noticed there are riding stables just up the road. I haven't
been on a horse in years. Do you ride? Maybe we could go riding some
morning......Ah, and your friend too, if she'd like.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel finishes his beer and goes to the bar to get another. When was
the last time I did something like this, just having a few drinks by
myself without those government guys bothering me every 5 minutes for
the source code of Gram... Daniel took his beer but he wasn't paying any
attention and tripped. The beer flew high and landed right in front of
Allan, it's contents spilled on his clothes. *

Daniel: Ah, crap...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone*giggles*: Thats was unexpected *she was elbowed by Sarah*

Ellone: ow!

Sarah: are you okay Allan*looks at the bartender*um a cloth please

*Ellone stood up and helped Daniel*

Ellone: Your turn to trip *smiles*

*Jennifer walked towards the group with a wide Grin on her face*

Jennifer: Sarah I thought we made it clear that employees are not suppose
to bother any guests *looks at Ellone* Mother has arrived,she wants to see you.

Ellone: Yeah whatever as if i care, *Sarah started to walk off when Ellone
grab her arm* Just to add on Jennifer, sarah is my friend and im sure Miss
Kate wouldn't mind that my Friend hangs out with me in her break *sticks
out her tongue then Drag sarah in the Hotel*

Sarah:You shouldn't have done that Elle

Ellone: And Miss that look on her Face....are you kidding!!come on Sarah
that had to make you laugh

*They both stared at each other before laughing.Meanwhile Jennifer turn
to look at Allan and Daniel,she cough before she talked*

Jennifer: sorry for all the trouble sir but don't worry the Girl and that
disrespectful Girl want bother you Again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan starts to jump up: Hey, what do you think you're......Ah, it's ok
*tries to smile* I like a good bear now and then.

*Allan watches the girls leave, then gives Jennifer a distainful look.*

Allan, angrily: I don't remember asking you to intrude. I'll allow them
to "bother" me any time I wish. Now go away and interfere with someone else.

(The nerve of that woman. She messes things up for me again, I'll see she
regrets it.........Daniel, now I remember. Those congressmen and the
general, at the last party, they were talking about him. Computer wiz or
something. If the military gets him, all we'll get is better ways to kill
each other, we'll never hear from him again. Mabey I can do something
about that.)

Allan got up and looked at Daniel: Say, maybe later we can have a beer
together, Ah, Daniel, isn't it. Perhaps we could get the girls to join
us. (Mmm, I'll need to get on his good side, maybe them we could work
something out. If he's all they were saying he is, I'd like to have him.)

Allan walked up to the registration desk and found paper and pen. He
wrote a note, "How would you like your own lab? You pick your projects
and people, no questions, no government. Budget negotiable. We split the
patents 40-60. E-mail me *****@****.com" Well, we'll see if that gets
any response from him.

Allan hands the not to the attendant: Would you see that Daniel Jackson
gets this........thank you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Oh man, I'm sorry, really. I wasn't paying attention to what I
was doing.

* Daniel simply ignored Jennifer and kept apologizing to Allan with a
silly look on his face. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone and sarah was walking back to the reception when a hand grabbed
Ellone and turn her around*

????: Elle!comme tu es belle!!*Ellone sigh as she sees the brown hair
tall woman with green eyes*

Ellone: Im guessing Paris was fun

*the woman smile while Ellone just gave her an anoyed look*

????:Ellone....you didnt fight again with Jennifer did you

Ellone:yeah what...

*The woman placed a hand on Ellone's shoulder*

????:I saw what happen Elle and since your still....well anyway i'll be
leaving again so someone will be

Ellone:i dont need a Babysitter KATE!

*Ellone shove off Kate's hand*Kate:who's says she's a babysitter*looks
at Sarah*Sarah i leave Ellone in your hands...keep an eye on
her...*ellone's mouth was half open while Sarah just looked at Kate
confused*

Sarah:But um Miss Hailing...i um...

Kate:Your not a receptionist Anymore Sarah...your job is to take care of
Ellone...so just have fun you two

*Kate walked away smiling,leaving two Girls confused and happy*

Ellone:she's up to something

Sarah:I dont get it?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan notices the tall woman talking to the girls as he is at the
reception desk. He just catches the last thing she says to Sarah.* (Oh,
this could be good. I'll be glad to help you have fun.)

Allan smiles and winks at Sarah as he walks past: You can "bother me"
some more, later, if you like.

As he walks away, Allan thinks. (What's gotten into me? I never asked a
girl to come after me before. I shouldn't either, should I? I don't
know, it's just, she's so different from the others. Sort of shy and
friendly and, well just cute. I do hope I can get to know her
better.....Her friend, well, I'll try to be nice. The way she looks at
me just rubs me the wrong way. I just don't want that to spoil things.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Sarah blushes while Ellone just snorted*

Ellone:Im going to get changed,how about we go eat at the restaurant in
the hotel

Sarah:oh yeah okay why not...*looks at her clothes* i guess i dont need
to put on the uniform*smiles*

Ellone*smiles*:Okay i'll meet you there!!

*Ellone runs into her room and got dress into a simple blue
dress.although she had dozen of expensive dresses she gave it away as
she never liked wearing any of those but its seems that she made a
mistake to let her aunt pack her things.but at least the dress was
nothing fancy.she smiled and walked out in search of the restaurant*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan watches Ellone run by as he enters his room. Pretty girl, to bad
she isn't as nice as her friend. Well, maybe I shouldn't judge her yet,
I've rubbed enough people the wrong way before.

*Allan checks his investments on line, and checks his e-mail.* Nothing
from Daniel, well, to soon to expect anything. I sure hope he replies,
I'd at least like a chance to talk it over....Now what does a regular
guy wear to a restaurant? Maybe jeans and a light shirt, I'll learn to
fit in yet.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Man, should have been more careful... He picked up his laptop and
decided to go to his room to leave it there before going out into the
city, maybe to visit a museum or to go to a restaurant. He didn't really
had any plans and he liked it that way, these were vacations, after all.
When he passed in front of the reception desk, the one behind him
stopped him and gave him a piece of paper. He gave it a quick read
before shoving it in his pocket and walking off the hotel quickly and
with an annoyed look on his face. Crap... here, too? Hmm... I will have
to do some research on him before anything... *

*Ellone smile as she sees sarah dress in a light pink dress,she noticed
that she wore some make-up.Sarah noticed Ellone she rushes towards her*

Sarah:Elle isnt it too much!!!do i look bad i mean

Ellone:Your fine Sarah!im guessing your hoping to meet allan right?

Sarah:um well no i just

Ellone*Rolled her eyes*:come on lets go find a seat*she ushered her
friend to a free table not too far from the Pianist.When they both took
her seat sarah looked at Ellone*

Sarah:i never thought that little Elle would be wearing a dress

Elle:My Aunt...

Sarah:no need to explain...im guessing she's still trying to raise you
to be a Lady

Ellone:Yeah she is...

Sarah:still not the talking type...so i heard Your going to the
competition for the olypics soon

Ellone:im not going Sarah...swimming is not for me,i just want to be a

Sarah*smiles*:Okay lets change subject!!!

Ellone*smiles*trying to cheer me up:okay so you liked that allan guy?

Sarah*blushes*:i...uh..i uh well um i

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan, looking around for the restaurant door, almost runs into Daniel.*

Allan: Oh, what the, *Allan smiles* hey, we keep running into each
other. *Laughs and looks up.* Maybe the gods are trying to tell us
something. I'm on vacation and I've got nothing to do, how about I buy
you dinner, I'll replace the beer that got spilled. Ok?

*Allan looks into the restaurant and sees the girls.* (OH MY, she
looks.....well....ah...sweet, ah, lovely. She's not like those plastic
dolls at the parties, she's so...human, real....I don't know. I really
hope she likes me.)

Allan: Say, those two girls are in there, maybe they would let us join
them. Sarah might be able to tell me what there is to do around these parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Ah, well...

* Come on, Daniel, maybe you get a chance to find out what he's after. *

Daniel: Sure, let's go.

* Daniel walks inside the restaurant with Allan and go to the table the
girls were sitting at. *

Daniel: Ladies, nice to see you again.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Well, good evening ladies. *He looks at Sarah.* You both look
lovely tonight. We seem to be at loose ends for the evening. Would you
mind if we joined you? I'd be happy to treat you to dinner if you would
just say yes. (Wait, is that being to forward? Will they think I'm
bribing them or something? I don't know how they go about this sort of
thing. I'm really out of my element here. I should have let Daniel
handle it.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone smiles at the two guys,while sarah blushes*

Sarah:will be happy if you join us,Right Elle!

Ellone*smiles*:Yeah sure but allan please you dont have to pay will pay
for our dinner ourselves,your company is enough to make sa....ow!okay!!

*Sarah stamped on Ellone's foot she looks at Ellone surprised but she
smiled as she figures what she is doing*

Sarah:Sorry My shoes were slipping off so i thought i'll

Ellone*laugh*:Thats the worse lie ever. (well if Sarah is interesting in
this Allan guy i might as well be nice to him)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Thank you Ellone, *Laughs* I guess where I come from I
always.....ah, the guys always paid. *Allan hold pulls out the chair
for Sarah. (What is it about this girl that makes me feel this way. I've
seen more "classicly beautiful" girls, and I hardly even know her. I was
just hoping to have some fun, now, well, I really hope she gets to like
me. I'd like to spend some time with her, and, who knows.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel sat in front of Ellone, now feeling slightly embarrased because
he was dressed too plainly, in his opinion, in comparison with the
others seated with him. *

Daniel: Ok, so... let's talk about something, what do you girls do for a
living?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah:well im working in this hotel as a Receptionist and now i guessed
ive been promoted to be Elle's babbysitter*Giggles*

Ellone*sigh*:i don't work*lowers head embarassed* my dad doesnt think i
should (maybe these guys will think that im just some spoiled rich girl
that lives on her daddy's money)

Sarah: Elle? you know being a sanders is tough,in a way i find that your
always working *looks at Ellone smiling* i mean who can ever be like
you, training in the pool all the time just to be prepare for the Nationals

Ellone: Being a swimmer isnt a living but Thanks i guessed i do work in a
way to drown myself *smiles*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Pretty pesimistic lady, ain't she? Daniel did his best to disguise his
thoughts. *

Daniel: Nationals, uh? I saw you swimming before, you know, in the
hotel... I'll be sure to cheer for you, then.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Promoted to babysitter, I can't imagine Ellone needing one. I
would imagine you're more like the companion the British girls would
have, years ago. *Smiles at Ellone*, now I remember where I've heard
your name. One of the olympic hopefulls according to the news. I wish
you luck, I remember how difficult training can be.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone smiles at Allan and Daniel*

Sarah:Well you don't know sarah, so im Guessing Elle isnt the only
swimmer? *looks at Allan*

Ellone:thanks,well i gotta go*stands up*

Sarah*Looks at her surprised*:But Elle we havent eaten yet!!

Ellone:um maybe later im not that hungry

Sarah:Okay i'll come

Ellone:Nah!its okay im going straight for my room anyways*Ellone walks
out of the restaurant,but not towards the rooms but to the pool,she sat
down onto the sides putting only her legs in it*

Ellone: (Nationals huh?)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah:Sorry about Elle but she's not a social type and im guessing that
she's still not comfortable talking about the nationals maybe i pushed
too far the subject

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: I hope I didn't upset her. I couldn't compete in swimming, I'm
not that good a swimmer. Actually, I was trying for a winter sport, a
rather obscure one, the biathalon. Srangely, I became interested in it
after seeing it in a James Bond movie. I was training very hard, but
then my parents died, I decided to concentrate on finnishing school and
taking over my fathers buisness. *Allan shakes his head.* I didn't have
much of a life. I guess I know how hard it can be for Ellone.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Well... I wouldn't really know about that... The closest thing I
get to a sport are the ones I get to play on my computer!

* Daniel smiles but the smile quickly fades away, when his brother's
face flashed on his mind. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick puts on his shirt and walks back into the hotel. He wants to keep
an eye on the familiar man that he was next to at the pool. Spotting him
from across the hall, he empties half the bottle of vodka into the
closest plant and walks up to Allan while putting the act that he is
extremely drunk. He grasps Allans hand.*

Nick: Hello there the names Nick Smith I was just talking to a friend of
mine and we both believe that we've met you before but I just can't
place the name...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name Rube Sofer
Age: 23
Hight: 5'11
Weight: 190
Hair: Black
Eyes: Brown

Bio: On his way to his sister graduation, the drive had been a long and
tiresome one. All he wanted to do was just be able to relax for a day.
His rental van had broke down on him. Already upset he goes to his
hotel, but something happen to his reservation. And is now force to stay
at another hotel.

*Rube walks up to the front desk, taping and ringing the bell angrily
and rapidly

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Katherine Summers
Age: 22
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 125 lbs
Hair: medium length, brown
Eyes: blue (wears glasses)
Occupation: Editor & Publisher for Sakura Books
Bio: Katherine was born in New York City amidst the hustle of her
father's Broadway debut. Her mother owned a small bookstore that soon
got bought out by a larger corporation.
Left with a single salary to support the family, Kaede, Katherine's
mother, decided to take Katherine and move West. Kaede took up two part
time jobs to support Katherine as she grew. Katherine grew up happy and
excelled in english classes and spelling bees throughout her elementary
years. When Katherine turned 13 her mother reopened her bookstore.
Katherine loved helping her mother and everyday after the store closed
she would stay downstairs reading book after book. Katherine continued
at the top of her english class and graduated through high school with a
scholarship to Yale. She majored in english as she joined Sakura Books
as an editor. When she graduated early from her college at the age of
21, she was promoted through the ranks to chief editor and publisher.
It's been a year since then and Katherine is taking a break from work to
write her own novel.

*Katherine walks into the hotel and up to the reception desk. She
glances at the man's nametag and smiles*

Katherine: Hello there... Enrique. My name is Katherine, I believe I
have a reservation under Summers.

*Enrique smiles and looks down at his reservation book. Then he grabs a
card and hands it to her*

Enrique: Here you are Ma'am. Your room is number 110. Please enjoy your
stay!

*Katherine smiles and takes the card from him then returns to her rental
car to grab her things. Finding her way to her room she unlocks the door
and sets down her bags*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Not everyone is into sports, Daniel. I haven't had time for them
since college. I wish I had kept up with some, but the gym is as close
to sports as I've been. You seem to be into your computer. Are you in
computer programing or something? (Now to do a little exploring where
Daniel is coming from.)

*Suddenly Allan is accosted by a rather drunk man. The guy who had been
sitting next to him at the pool.*

Allan: Hey, what do you think you're doing? I've never met you and I'm
sure not your friend, if he's a drunk like you. *Allan pushes the Nick
away from him.* Get out of my face. Go back to your bottle.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah*loooks at Allan surprised but shook her head*:i think someone
should help him!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel let out a deep breath as Nick comes in swaying towards the
table and starts talking to Allan. Just what this day needed... Better
bail out now. *

Daniel: Erm... I will leave you two-- I mean, three, and go over...
there, ok?

* Daniel stands from the table and walks in the direction he had
pointed, ending up on the pool. No, wrong turn. I wanted to... go... He
sees Ellone sitting in the edge of the pool alone. He looks around, not
knowing what to do and finally decides to walk next to her. *

Daniel: Hey... Weren't you going back to your room?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rube seeing that Enrique helped Katherine, before him gets in Enrique*

Rube: Is there a problem, there?

*Enrique just looks at him*

Enrique: I don't know, is there a problem?

Rube: little bit.

Enrique: You know you're a real jerk.

Rube: What you're feeling right now. Rage and frustration all knotted up
together. binding everything from digestive tact. Thats my life right.
What the fresh hell was that. I speak not now for myself but honesty. I
don?t know what this is.

Enrique: Excuse me?

Rube: This is freaking unacceptable. Now please do no tarry.

Enrique: Excuse me?

Rube: Look its been a very freaking long day for me, I ringed the bell,
you came out, you helped the first thing you saw with boobs. Even though
I was here first.

Enrique: Do you want a room or not?

Rube: Yes, thank you.

Enrique: It'll take awhile, you can wait in the bar, if you like.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan watched Nick walk away: He wasn't drunk, and he isn't with a
friend. (And he has a gun I wonder what that is all about.) *Allan looks
at Sarah.* Oh, lots of people think I look like that rich guy. Let's
just forget that happened.....Look, I 'm really sorry if I upset your
friend. I'm not sure what I said, but, could you tell her I'm sorry.....I
so wanted this to just be a pleasent evening. If you would like, we
could go for a bit of a walk. I would enjoy talking with you more.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah: No im sure Elle isnt upset about anything you said its just she....
???? She's upset to come up agaist her sister in the nationals

*Sarah looks up to see Jennifer*

Jennifer:i believe mum ask you to supervise Ellone not to flirt with the
guests

*Sarah stood up feeling embarassed*

Sarah: Elle went to her room she....

Jennifer: and you believe her!!That wild Girl could be anywhere by now
getting into trouble like always

Sarah: Elle has changed and in case you haven't noticed i dont take
orders from you but from Miss kate and if something happens to Elle i'll
take responsibilty for it!!!*Grabs Allan's arm*and Jennifer what i do in
my job or what Ellone does is NONE of your Bussiness!!!*she dragged
Allan out of the restaurant to the Garden outside*

Sarah: sorry but she got me Angry

Meanwhile

*Ellone jumped at the sound of Daniel's voice*

Ellone: uh yeah i um i needed to...well i was....*sigh in defeat* can i
tell you next year when i master the way to lie *smiles* i really dont
have a clue why im here....but i cant say that, i'll sound like an
idiot, please don't tell sarah

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan and Sarah walk to the railing overlooking the ocean.*

Allan mutters under his breath: If that woman interferes again I'll make
sure she regrets it.

Allan leans on the railing: I'm sorry I've caused trouble. I can see you
and Ellone are good friends. She doesn't seem to like me much, and I
wouldn't want to do anything to hurt your friendship.......I never had
any real friends, I guess I just never took the time to try, and, well,
I haven't been a very good person. I wish I was, I'd like to be.....I'm
trying, that's why I left and came here. This morning I looked around at
everything and found I truely had nothing. *looks up at Sarah* I've
never met someone like you. *Looks down* I had just hoped that you could
teach me what it is to be alive.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah*looks away from Allan*: Trouble? *laughs* you could never get me in
trouble like Elle.....dont worry about Elle, she's talking to you at
ease *looks at Allan smiling* Thats a good sign....but about being alive,i
think your doing it well *walks to the other side of allan* since your
walking on your two feet!!!. (what a weird guy....but he has a kind heart)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel laughs and sits in the floor at her right with his legs crossed. *

Daniel: "master the way to lie", that's a new one. And no, I won't tell
your friend, why would I?

Re: Hailings hotel: book 1

Post by oldwrench » July 20th, 2007, 8:32 pm

Ellone:Hmm well i don't know maybe its because*pokes him on the
forehead*i dont know you well*turns away and laughs*so what brings you
here?i guessed im to used everyone being spies for my father that i dont
get to trust them but i doubt if his one though

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Peace and relaxation. I felt like running away from things for a
few days.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan looks down at his shoes: You're right, I am standing on my feet,
therefore I'm alive, I think. *Looks at Sarah and laughs.* I've just
been hiding in my work to long. There's so much I'd like to do. *Smiles
a naughty boy smile.* You have noooo idea of the trouble I could get you
into......How about we start with a walk down the beach? I haven't had
sand in my shoes since, I don't know when.

(Yes the trouble I could get you into, just take you to one of the
parties. Dame Emmings would have a fit, she's been trying to pawn one of
her "Barbie Doll" daughters on me for years. The old biddies would make
so much gossip, and the cattie little girls would have hissy fits....I'd
never want that to happen to you, Sarah.)

*They walk down the beach, talking happily. Allan finding odd shells and
driftwood to examine and make up strange stories about. At ease for the
first time in years.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Ellone:Oh i wish i could run away from things*sigh*but that will never
happen...*Mischievous smile*so um Daniel do you like having fun?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Of course, what do you have in mind?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick quickly drops the drunk act and gets away from Allen as fast as he
can. He walks over to the bar and sits down with a ashen look on his face.*

Nick: (Oh my God, I can't believe it. Richard Cory, there's little to no
chance that he could be someone else, expecially with that recent report
that was sent out saying that he was missing. But how could he end up
here? No...there's no use jumping to conclusions, it might not be him. I
can't start to analize this until I prove to myself that he's Richard.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Elle:Hmm well i was going to push you in the water but then you might
not know how to swim.....you don't do sports so*Blinks*do you think you
can sneak me out of the hotel for a while i would like a Hamburger...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine sighs and stretches as she unpacks her things in her room and
rearranges the furniture a bit more to her liking. Then she changes into
a modest sky-blue sundress and slips into her sandals. She grabs her
manuscript from the bedside table and tucks her room card into the
sleeve of the book before leaving her room for the staircase down the
hall. She takes the staircase up to the rooftop patio and sits down in a
chair to take in the sunset. She looks out onto the ocean and can see
two people walking along the beach below*

Katherine: ...what a nice place to sit and write a novel... I think this
vacation will do wonders for me...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Well, I wouldn't know. I'm afraid you know this place better
than I do.

* Daniel stood up and offered his hand to Ellone. *

Daniel: But let's give it a try.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rube is sitting in the bar, trying his best to relax. When a bellboy
comes up to Rube*

Bellboy: Mr. Sofer?

Rube: Yeah.

Bellboy: Er...sir, I'm afraid I have some bad news?

Rube: nice, well go ahead lay it on me.

Bellboy: Your luggage sir.

Rube: HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!...its lost.

Bellboy: er...yes sir...

*Rube just gets up and walks out and strolls around the surrounding*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*After writing for a while Katherine closes her book and tucks it
beneath her arm as she heads back downstairs. She enters the bar and
sits at the bar, ordering a hot scotch to fight the slight chill she had
gotten. She gets her drink and sips it lightly as she reviews what she
had written*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone smiles and takes Daniel hand,she leans her head to the right*

Ellone:just to warn you,that when your with me you will have to do sports

*Jennifer comes into the swimming area with two other guys*

Jennifer:Their she is!!

Ellone:starting now!!*she pulls daniel as she runs to the garden.*maybe
we can hide there!!*she quickly runs behind a large tree and some Rose
bush.*

Ellone*panting*:did....we....lose...them?*looks at Daniel*sorry to drag
you into this*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine gets up from the stool and picks up her novel and her drink
and wanders out to the garden to read. She sits on a wrought iron bench
next to a rose bush and sets her drink next to her, opening her book
once again*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan watches Sarah as she dances lightly in the twilight surf.* (She
isn't a beautiful woman........She'a an angel. When I was about as low
as I've ever felt When I just wished I could disappear, close my eyes
and cease to exist. God sent her to me, maybe to teach me to live again.
Please, just give me a chance to live, to be real, if only for a sort time.)

Allan laughs and calls out: Ice cream, Sarah, lets go get an ice cream
cone. I havent had one in years. There was a drive-in in town. would you
like some.

Sarah laughs at Allan: You're really funny Allan. I'd love some ice
cream. Let's go. (He's like a highschool boy on his first date. This is fun.)

*Sarah takes Allan's hand and runs down the beach toward the gardens.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name: Yoriko Kokia
Age: 21
Hair: Dark blonde with red streaks
Eyes: Light brown
Bio: Her father came from Japan and her mother from America, so that's
why her name is slightly Japanese. There's nothing really special about
her family.
Yoriko is a model but she isn't stuck-up like other models. She only
decided to become a model because her sister (who had died a couple of
years ago) had always pushed her to become a model. She was in the hotel
because she would have a photo shoot in a couple of days in the
neighbourhood and she wanted to get to know the suroundings better so
she could go somewhere during the breaks.

*Yoriko sighed and lay down her book. (She was in her room, by the
way..) She got up and pulled on some baggy jeans and changed her dress
for a spaghetti-strapped top, before going down. She got something to
drink and went to the garden (she had always liked flowers).*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine looks up from her novel as several people enter the garden at
once. Two from the beach and a blonde from inside. Katherine looks back
at her book*

Katherine: maybe some time away from it will help me with new ideas...

*Katherine sighs and puts her book down at her eet in exchange for her
drink which she sips quietly as she surveys the flowers and the new
people in the garden*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*As Allan and Sarah enter the gardens Allan surveys the scene and
whispers in Sarah's ear.*

Allan: Isn't that your friend, Ellone, hiding behind the rose bushes by
that tree? I think there's a guy with her. What kind of mischief do you
suppose she's up to, *Laughs a little* Babysitter?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Yoriko stretched and looked around. She saw some other people but
didn't really take any interest in them until she saw someone with brown
hair and writing equipment next to her. ((if it's not writing equipment,
just think it said book there, 'kay?)) Yoriko also liked books, there
wasn't much she didn't like. She walked towards her and smiled.*

Yoriko: Do you mind if I ask you what you're doing? I couldn't help but
notice your things, sorry if I'm intruding.

((She has no skills when it comes to conversation, by the way. She
usually just says what she thinks... hehe, forgot to say that ^^'))

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah: she told me I.....isn't that the guy earlier in the restaurant? What
are they up too? *Pulls Allan behind a tree* What is she up to now?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine looks up from drinking her hot scotch at the blonde. She
swallows what was in her mouth and clears her throat*

Katherine: hem, excuse me. No you're not intruding, well, I mean you are
but it doesn't bother me. I'm writing a book and I just set it down to
do a bit of relaxing is all. You can sit down if you'd like.

*Katherine scoots over to make more room on the bench*

Katherine: My name is Katherine by the way, but you can call me Kat if
you want.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan Whispers: Maybe we should sneek up on them and scare them.
(remembers his high school days, and gets the wrong idea of what's going
on) *Quiet laugh* Wouldn't that be mean? Say, maybe they would like to
go with us, if they don't get to mad at us. *laughs*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah: SHHHH! *giggles* Oooh, I am so going to enjoy teasing her. I mean, she
is so busted and I'm going to kill her for doing this to me. *Leaning on
one foot to look at Ellone, Sarah loses her balance and falls onto Allan,
causing them both to fall on the ground.* AIE!

*Ellone turns around to see Sarah*

Ellone *smirks*: dont you think you guys are moving too fast? I mean you've
only met for like 3 or 4 hours like that.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Hearing Ellone's remark Katherine can't help but snicker*

Katherine: that's a line i gotta put in my book! haha!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Yoriko smiled and sat down.*

Yoriko: My name is Yoriko. What kind of book are you writing?

*I hope I'm not intruding too much, she thought. I bet I am.. whah! Why
can't I just shut my mouth?*

Yoriko: Sorry, it's just that I talk a lot because I say what's on my
mind. I hope you don't find me anoying!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katherine: No, I don't find you annoying at the moment. I possibly could
later though! hee hee!

*Katherine sips the last of her hot scotch and gets up to order
something else from the bar*

Katherine: I'm going to get something else from the bar. Care to join me?

Re: Hailings hotel: book 1

Post by oldwrench » July 20th, 2007, 8:33 pm

Yoriko: Sure!

*Yoriko smiled and got up as well. She was happy Katherine didn't find
her anoying (yet).*

Yoriko: Are you a writer? Since you're writing a book and all..

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katherine: Kind of, I'm the editor and publisher of Sakura books.

*Katherine puts down her glass on the bar and asks for a cosmopolitan*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan falls down with his arms around Sarah. Laughing. (I could be
enjoying this too much.)*

Allan: We weren't the ones hiding behind the bushes, a tree, but not
bushes. *Laughs* Beside, all we wanted was to get some ice cream. Want
to come with?

*Sarah hesitates for short time before pulling away from Allan, sitting
up and modestly staightening her dress.* (That felt so nice, I could get
use to that.)

Sarah, a bit red faced: Yes, we were just going to invite you to come
with us, that's all.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:is that a blush i see?sure i believe ya...*blinks*ice cream?sarah
you seem to forget that you can't leave the hotel

Sarah:oh*looks at Allan*im sorry i forgot that im working...i can't
leave im suppose to be looking after Ellone*glares at ellone for a
second*which is prove to be difficult

Ellone:Hey i was sneaking out myself, i wanted a hamburger

Sarah*shook her head*:that doesn't explain why you lied and left!!!!this
might have cost me my job!!!!

Ellone*laughs*:you didnt seem to care when you were going to go get
ice-cream

*Sarah blushes*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yoriko: Cool! I like to read books.

*She asked for something to drink as well.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan laughs at the two girls: Since Sarah's job is "babysitting"
Ellone, I'm taking you both out for ice cream. Someones's got to
chaperone those two. Don't you think so, Sarah? ......If anyone gets in
trouble, just blame it on me. They can't get too mad at a guest, can
they? Come on Dan, let's take these two out on an old style double date.
We'll even promise to have them in by 10:30. *Smiles*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katherine: good! that's the kind of thing I like to hear!

*Katherine pays for both their drinks, takes hers and goes back out to
the garden to hear about ice-cream*

Katherine: Ice-cream? cool! I didn't know there was a shop around here!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:*pokes Allan behind his head*i dont need a babysitter and his
just a friend*sticks out her tongue childishly before walking infront of
them*

Sarah:Elle where are you going?

Ellone:didn't you hear free ice-cream!!!

Sarah*shooks her head*:you havent change at all*runs to walk beside Ellone*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Hey little girl, didn't you know that dates just start out with
friends....anyway, glad you took my bribe. *Takes Sarah's hand and walks
after Ellone and Dan.* Mine's the dark green Grand Prix. You two get the
back seat, sorry it's a two door.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel had been looking for air since they stopped at the bushes so he
couldn't have said a single word, even if he wanted to. Now he was a
little more calmed, though. *

Daniel: Man... I thought I was gonna die, those guys looked dangerous!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine sips her cosmopolitan sullenly as she watches them walk away*

Katherine: fine then... don't show me where the ice-cream is....

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone*smirks*:whatever old man

Sarah:Elle!

Elle:what?he call me something i might as well call him something too

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine returns to the bar and perches on a stool drinking her drink*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan smiles: Touche', I guess I'll have to watch myself around
you....Ah, what guys looked dangerous? Has this got something to do with
that Nick, character?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: The ones we were running from... man, I only ran a little and
I'm this tired... And I can usually run from one side of the other of a
battlefield in Unreal Tournament, too...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rube crawls back to the bar, takes a seat by Katherine*

Rube: Give me something hard! its been a day...

*Rube looks around his surrounding and sees Katherine, with sullen face*

Rube: Hard day too?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine is slightly sloshed*

Katherine: nope! I got my cosmopolitan to keep me company! I'm good! haha!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rube smiles*

Rube: I'm Rube, can I buy that drink for you?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine makes a pouty face at him*

Katherine: This one's already paid for!

*Then Katherine finishes off her cosmopolitan and makes a silly smile at
Rube*

Katherine: but you can buy the next one! haha!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rube: cosmopolitan, for my friend here, and keep my coming.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine calls after the bartender*

Katherine: make it a margarita!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rube: Make that two...I feel like loosing up.

*Rube looks to Katherine*

Rube: So what's your story?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine plays it cool*

Katherine: No story. just a name and a dream. The name is Katherine, the
dream, well you can find that out yourself ha ha!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rube: Ah the dreamer...hmm...

*Rube looks her up and down, thinking*

Rube: Single, in a bar, tipsy...a writer of some sort.

Katherine: "Elementary my dear Watson"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rube leans over putting his head down, chuckling*'

Rube: Serious? I was just messin', nice. So you got any of your work,
here with you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katherine: Yeah, but it's a work in progress. I'm not showing it to
anyone or telling anyone about it.

*Katherine polishes off her margarita and puts her hand to her head*

Katherine: Oh! brain freeze!

*It passes and Katherine hops off her stool*

Katherine: hey thanks for the company ....err I didn't quite catch your
name.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:dont be such a baby those want hurt a fly

Sarah:who were they?

Ellone: bodyguards

*sarah giggles*

sarah:dont tell me is the same people

Ellone:yeah

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rube gets up and fixes himself a bit*

Rube: Sofer, Rube Sofer. It was a pleasure meeting you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katherine: You as well! Have a nice night mister Sofer!

*Katherine returns to the garden, gathers her things and goes to her
room to turn in for the night*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Yoriko returned to her room and picked her book up again. It was
impossible for her to sleep just yet so she thought reading might help.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick stands up and walks off towards where "Allan" went. He
accidentally brushes against Rubes as he passes, slightly spilling the
drink in his hand but Nick is completely unaware as he walks out the door.*

Nick: In most field cases, it's best to get to know your target before
doing anything. So in this case I should make friends with "Allen"
before talking to Richard.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan opens the door for the others and then gets behind the wheel. He
notices Nick come out the door.*

Allan, (Bodyguards? And what is that Nick guy's game? Who sent him, and
why? Worse, how the heck did they know I'm here?)

Allan looks at Sarah and laughs: So the young heiress eludes her
opressive bodyguards and slips away for a fun night out with her
friends. *Looks at Nick coming toward the car.* Let's go! *Guns the
engine and pulls out of the parking lot, a bit more quickly than is
prudent.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:who says were friends?

Sarah:Elle!

Ellone:what?dont worry when we get the free ice-cream,he will be my
friend*smiles*

Sarah*shooks head*:you know allan,you dont know elle well enough as is
do but you should start talking back to her because i think she found a
new person to tease

Ellone*smiles inocently*:Hey im good!!beside im 18 now so im pratically
a woman!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: I wouldn't say "practically"-- eh, I mean...

* There you go again, Daniel, real smooth... Daniel shook his head and
tried to change the subject. *

Daniel: Don't you think you're going a little too fast?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan slows down some: Ya, sorry, I guess I was pushing things a bit.
Sarah, I've never been good a snappy comebacks, so I it looks like
Ellone wins. But I'll think of something. If she isn't nice, I'll get
her a flavor she doesn't like.......Let's see....Ah, the young heiress
isn't so sure they are her friends, but they promised her something.
She'll wait to see if they keep their promise, or if it was just empty
words, like so many others have been. Tune in next week for the
continuing saga.

*Allan pulls into the drive-in with the sign that advertizes "the best
ice cream" and parks the car.

Allan: ok, my treat, I keep my promises. (I haven't always, but it's not
right. I should, I will from now on.) I wonder how many scoops they can
pile on one cone.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Elle*looks at Allan weirdly*:Hey you okay!don't worry your doing
fine...i dont know what but im thinking your thinking about something
this sentenced is always used to cheer people up!!!*remembers something
and walks to Daniel poking him on the head tauntingly*what do you mean
you would'nt say pratically i'll have you know i am a mature*sees sarah
walks in the ice-cream shop*hey dont cheat sarah wait for us!!!!*runs in
dragging Daniel*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel almost falls while getting dragged by Ellone but manages to
stay on his feet until they are inside the ice-cream shop and Ellone
let's go of him. Man, what did I got myself into? *

Daniel: OK, let's see... I'll have chocolate.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone*claps her hand exitedly*:Vanilla!!VanillA!*she notices the crowd
of people staring at her she quickly retreats herself behind Daniel*did
i say that out loud?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan stands next to Sarah: Just such boring flavors? There are so many
to chose from. Oh, how to chose, I'll have to keep comeing back till
I've tried them all.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*before going to sleep, Katherine sits outside on her patio that lets
out to the beach watching the stars and the waves*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah*giggles*:You sound like one of those rich Kids that me and Ellone
used to tease when we were Kids*Takes Allan's hand*come on i'll help you
decide....

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Yoriko heard her mobile phone and walked towards the table where it
lay. She picked it up and answered the phone.*

Person on the other side: Yo Yoriko. Still up, eh?

Yoriko: Obviously I am, Chuck...

Chuck: Anyway, I just wanna tell you that the shoot has been replaced to
tomorrow. Is that okay with you?

Yoriko: Do I have a choice?

Chuck: Not really.

Yoriko: Well then. Anyway, I'll just try to sleep then.

Chuck: Great. Good night.

Yoriko: See ya.

*Yoriko hung up and went to bed, after all, it would be a long day
tomorrow.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Aw, come on, I have enough to afford ice cream. That's because
I've been spending to much time working, not enough playing, so I'm
ready to go overboard.

*Allan pays for everyone's ice cream and they st at a table.*

Allan: See Ellone, miss Heiress in the story, I did keep my promise. Can
we be friends now?........Dan, we were interupted before, you never did
tell us what kind of work you do.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:okay*looks at daniel*yeah what do you do?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel shifts in his seat, feeling a little awkward. *

Daniel: Well, ah... nothing interesting, really. Right now I'm working
for a video game producer company, nothing too fancy. Have you heard
about Blizzard?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Video games, I've played a few, but never had time to really get
into them. I haven't heard of Blizzard. What's it like, or is it one of
those top secret things?
He's doing vid games? Right, and I'm an astronaut. But then, it might
just be a sideline for him, or a place he can experiment without being
watched over.

Allan turns to Sarah: Do you play video games? We could find an arcade
and you could show me how inept at them I am. *Smiles*

Re: Hailings hotel: book 1

Post by oldwrench » July 20th, 2007, 8:35 pm

Daniel: Nah, it's no secret. It's the company I work for. Anyways, right
now there's this game under development, Starcraft 2 ((real news, gamers
amongs us!)), and I'm working on the enemies artificial intelligence.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: AI, that cool stuff. they say that in a few years, computers will
be mor intelligent than humans. Do you think that is really possible. I
mean, will they ever be able to reason like people do?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:i would like to play that game

Sarah:with that schedule you have,i doubt that

Ellone:I'll find time

sarah:well its getting late,shouldnt we go

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Actually--

* Hold it! Damn, Daniel, keep your mouth shut about Gram! Daniel shifted
again in his seat. *

Daniel: ... I don't think so. Current AI technology is very specific and
take great amount of resources so a program that would react like a
human to ANY situation needs far more processing power than it's
currently available.

* Daniel hears Ellone's comment about the game and looks at her. *

Daniel: Tell you what, give me a contact address and I'll make sure to
mail you a copy.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone*smiles*:okay here*takes a small piece of paper and writes her
email adress<SandElle@hotmail.com>*There!*sarah looks at the email
adress and giggles*

Sarah:Sand elle.....another way to say it send elle your homework
assigments....

Elle:what?i only had an email adress for the purpose

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick drives his car and stops in a parking spot across the street from
the ice cream parlor. He pulls out a pair of binoculars and searches the
insides of the store to find Allan. Noticing them sitting down and
aparently talking, Nick gets out of the car and sneaks inside, carful to
keep them unaware of his presence.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine falls asleep under the stars*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan; Ok Sarah, I promised to have you back by ten thirty, so we better
get on back. Let's go kids, *Smiles at Ellone* maybe we can think up
some more to do tomorrow.

*As the leave, Allan sees Nick out of the corner of his eye.* (What the
heck does he want? He's following me all over. Is someone out to get me?
How could they have followed me here? Maybe I should pack and get out of
here. But I can't not now, just when I found some very good people. Damn
him, what can I do?)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone*notices allan's strange expression,she looks to where his looking
to find nick*:Allaaaaaaaaaan!*smiles when she gets his attention*come on
sarah can't wait all day!hey i recognize that guy!*walks to nick's
car*hi are you lost?

((okay after this we go home so that a new day will come.))[/u]
[Not yet rated]

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick looks up*

Nick: Huh... ahhh no I actually enjoy coming here every now and then for
ice cream, I like this store the best. But I will confess, I was
following your friend there because when we met earlier he accidentally
pushed me back and something of mine fell into his pocket. Its a cell
phone of mine and I was hopeing to get it back.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:are you sure??but anyway none of it matters where going back to
the hotel so you should ask him now*turns and looks at Allan*Hey
allan!this guy wanna ask ya something!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan, a bit surprised by Ellone's boldness walks over to Nick with a
dark look on his face.*

Allan: Whatever it is you are after, I don't have it. So it would be
best for you to back off.

*Allan turns and takes Sarah's hand and walks to the car.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone*sighs*:sorry,bye

*walks to allan*

Ellone:you know the best way to know something is to be friendly*takes a
seat at the back before allan could answer and stares out of the window*

*sarah surprised at Allan's sudden move and taking her hand,stays quiet*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick follows "allan" to the car.*

Nick: I am not joking around you really do have my phone and I would
like it back before you force me to go to the police! Are you listening
to me?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: You're right Ellone, I'm not a very nice person, but I'm trying
to be. *Looks at Sarah* Sorry,I guess I'm a bit to paranoid. It's
just....I've made more enemies, with my buisness, than freinds. A lot of
people would be happy if I disappeared, permanently.

*Allan is slighty startled when Nick comes up to the car.*

Allan: I really don't think I have your phone, but I'll check, ok.
*Allan gets out and searches his pockets.* See, I don't.....*looks at
his had in surprise.* Ah, I guess I do have it. Man, that one is small
and light. Here, *hands it to Nick* sorry, I shouldn't have acted the
way I did.

*Turns toward the car, then back, and says, quietly: Look, would you
want to talk, later, in the bar? Just give me a time.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick smiles.*

Nick: Yeah I'd like that, I'll meet you there tonight at 10:00. I'll pay
for whatever you want to have while we're there.

*Without another word save for goodbyes, Nick walks back to his car and
sits down. He unfolds his hand and looks at the phone that he had put in
"Allan's" pocket. He pulls open the battery case and instead of a normal
battery pack, it is a tracking device. He checks to see if it is still
working properly and convinced that it is, he leaves for the hotel.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone smiles*

Ellone:well then at least it work...*sigh*Allan i didnt say you were
mean i just wanted to help and it work,we find out what the guy was
looking and solve the situation but*looks at Nick as he goes to his
car*I dont trust that guy

Sarah:Elle dont go judging people

Ellone:Im not its just how he acts,it make me uncomfortable,its a
feeling i get

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel looks at Nick walk towards his car and sighs. He walks like one
of those government dudes... Daniel shrugs and walks towards the car. *

Daniel: Hey, now that I think about it, won't that other woman be angry
at you for running away from her, Ellone?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:OOooh that would be great!!!

Sarah:AAAAAAAAAH!*taps allan on the shoulder*we Have go back!!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Yes, I promised to get you home early. We'll have to do more
together tomorrow.

*Allan drives thm back to the hotel, they say their goodnights in the
lobby.*

Allan: This really has been a fun day, ladies. *Looks at Sarah,* I hope
we have lot's more good days. *Smiles.* So, till tomorrow, goodnight angels.

*As Allan walks to the bar he thinks, (Sarah really is my angel). Allan
remembers a song, one of his favorites. Strangely, the singers name was
Sarah.


Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it OK
There's always some reason to feel not good enough
And it's hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction or a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty and weightless and maybe
I'll find some peace tonight
In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent revelrie
You're in the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn
There's vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don't make no difference, escaping one last time
It's easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees
In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent revelrie
In the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here
You're in the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone and sarah walks into the hallway to their rooms laughing to what
allan had said "angels".*

?????:Are you ladies in big trouble!

*Turns around to see jennifer smirking at them*

Elle:what are you going to do Jennifer,tell your mum?

Sarah:I might,but your sister would surely like the news Elle and if you
do remeber that sarah is an employee so she can get sack pretty
easily!*sarah lowerd her head while Elle remain calme*

Elle:tell mys sister,i dont care and you can't fire Sarah she's my
caretaker!

Jennifer:she spoke back to me and she's flirting with our guests so
Forgive me ellone but i think ive got more reasons to fire her!!

Ellone*smiles*:Sure Jennifer i do forgive you now get out of my face
before i reach my decision to slap that pretty face of yours back to
hell!!!*take on step forward*and if Sarah gets Fired,i'll make sure to
tell Miss hailing about her daughter's misbehaviour by snooping into
people's bussiness and also Flirting with my friends

*Jennifer steps backwards before walking away fast from them*

Sarah:Oh no Elle im in trouble now

Ellone:No your not...*smiles at Sarah*Kate won't fire you because of me
she is already trying to get through me so firing you owuld be the last
thing on her mind now go get some slepp*Ellone waves goodbye and walks
in her room,dropping herself on her bed and sleeps*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel walks back to his room, feeling like he had forgotten
something. He goes into his room, locking the door behind him and starts
his laptop to check his mail. *

Daniel: Let's see, one new mail from... damn... I think I'm the only
person in the world whose inbox is spammed by the NSA. Oh, well.

* Daniel deletes all of the "spam" messages and goes to sleep. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan sits at the bar and and orders a drink. He wonders what he will
find out from Nick. Who sent him, and why? Somehow, Allan knows, he
can't let this end.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

((sorry gpa but its morning))

*Ellone wakes up,after taking a shower she dresses herself in a white
tank top and a jean.she walks out of the room humming softly to herself*

Post by oldwrench » July 20th, 2007, 8:36 pm

*Yoriko got up and checked for messages. Since there were none she got
dressed and went down so she could get something to eat.*

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine wakes to find the sun risen and her clothes damp from the
ocean spray and the morning dew. She gets up rather sore from the lawn
chair mumbling to herself and stretching*

Katherine: oohh... I gotta remember to make it to bed tonight... this
lawnchair is not cutting it at all.

*Katherine brushes her teeth and her hair then changes into white shorts
and a light pink tank top and baby blue thong sandals before heading out
into the main foyer for breakfast. She sees Yoriko and goes over to her*

Katherine: Hey, morning there. Did you sleep well?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Yoriko looked up surprised and smiled.*

Yoriko: Good morning. Yes, I slept quite well. What about you?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan woke up, still a bit angry, he had waited for an hour and a half
for Nick to show up before returning to his room. He really had wanted
to find out what the guy is after. Allan picks up his cell phone and
calls a very good detective agency he has used often before.*

Allan: Ya, this is Richard. I want you to look into someone for me, Nick
Smith, he's staying at Hailings hotel. No, I don't want surveilence, at
least not now, just find out anything you can on him. Right, send it to
the usual e-mail. Thanks. (Alright, I'll try to forget him, for now. I
just want to forget everything, and enjoy life for a change. Is that to
much to hope for?)

*Allan heads down for some breakfast.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine puts her hand over her eyes to block the sun. The sun is
hurting her head. All the alcohol the night before left her with a hangover*

Katherine: mmm...I've got a bit of a migrane this morning...

*Katherine rubs her eyes and goes over to the coffee caraffe. She
returns with a cup of coffee and begins to sip at it*

Katherine: of course..caffeine is not going to help...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick walks into the hotel looking like he got run over by a train. On
his way back to the hotel the previous night he stopped for dinner and
when he got back outside his car had been destroyed. While he was
waiting for a tow truck he was ambushed by the people who did it and
barely escaped being beaten to death.*

Nick: If I ever have free time again, I am going to find those punks and
book them for life.

*Nick goes to try and get back to his room but before he can even make
it across the pool his legs give way and he falls in the deep end.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel wakes up and looks around around, wondering where he is before
remembering he's staying at an hotel. He takes a bath, changes into some
tropical clothes and goes down for breakfast. He finds Allan in the way
and catches up to him. *

Daniel: Hey, man, what's up?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Oh, good morning Dan. How about we have some breakfast? Let's get
a table out by the pool, morning sun is so nice.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yoriko: I hope it goes away soon.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rube walking the same path as Nick. Had just seen Nick as he fell into
the pool*

Rube: Hey man!

*Rube runs and dives into the pool, he catches Nick and swims back up*

Crap, come on, come on?lets see CPR?

*Rube makes a face and looks around*

Rube: Hey help! Can I get some help!? Come one man, you awake?

*Rube looks at Nick for while to if he breathing*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nick: [Cough cough hack wheeze ((you get the picture....))] ugh what's
going on?

*Nick rolls over and sits up noticing that he's all wet. He laughs at
himself and turns to his rescuer.*

Nick: Let me guess, I fell in?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan and Dan come to the pool just as Rube pulls Nick out of the
water. They hurry over to the two.*

Allan: Geeze, what happened. Hey you ok? I'll call the rescue squad if
you want......Damn, you look like you got in a wreck. Maybe we should
take you to a hospital.

(Allan has never been around when something like this happened. Despite
his reservations about Nick, he is concerned and doesn't know what to do.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine smiles gratefully a little*

Katherine: Thanks, me too.

*Hearing the ruckus her head starts to hurt more. She turns to look over
near the pool*

Katherine: Damn! What is that awful din?

*Katherine storms over to the pool yelling*

Katherine: It's barely morning and you all have to be making this
dreadful noise! Are you trying to wake up everyone in the hotel?!?

*Katherine sees Nick in bad shape and stops yelling*

Katherine: Oh, Oh my gosh!

*Katherine runs the several remaining feet to the group*

Katherine: You guys what happened?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rube turns to look*

Rube: Ah, the writer. Sorry, terrible at names...*cough* Anywho, luckily
I was walking, and saw buddy over here, take a fall into the pool.

*Rube shrugs it off like nothing, as if its something he?s done a dozen
of times?((Hmm?a hint there maybe, lol))*

Rube: How are you this morning?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Yoriko got up from her chair and walked away, back to her room. She
didn't feel like eating anymore.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*When Rube asks her how she is, Katherine remembers her headache and
covers her eyes from the sun as she runs back into the hotel moaning*

Katherine: Ahh! uughh!

*Katherine finds her way to the giftshop and buys a bottle of asprin.
she returns to the breakfast parlor and grabs a glass of OJ as she chugs
down a couple of pills. She goes to the fruit bar and gets a bowl of
fruit with melons and pineapple bits and strawberries, grabs a paper
from the rack and settles down in a chair to eat her fruit and read the
paper*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*he stands up and notices that his feet are somehow steady.*

Nick: I'm allright, I just had a bit of a rough night that's all. thank
you for your help Mr....

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel taps Allan's shoulder and whispers to him. *

Daniel: Let's go, man. This guy means trouble any way I see it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone walked to the pool area noticing what have happen she turns
around and call to Jennifer who was talking to xome Guest*

Ellone:Hey Jennifer!Get some towels or help someone nearly Drown*A maid
walks pass her holding some towels she takes two then smile at
Jennifer,which looked worried and embarrased infront of the
guests*Nevermind i got them!*she walks to the Group and give a towel to
Rube then Nick*You guys okay??

((Ellone would have panick but she has seen this more often and she
arrives when everything was cool down))

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Well, if you're sure you'll be alright. I could take you to a
doctor or something if you want.....

Since Nick turned down the offer Allan turns to Dan: Ok, I guess we can
get some breakfast then. *Notices Ellone come up.* Good morning Ellone,
how would you like to join us for some breakfast? I think the excitement
has ended here. *Allan looks for Sarah, but doesn't see her around.* Is
Sarah coming to join you?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:sure thing!*Blinks*sarah???*giggles*i think she will joined us
very soon*smirks*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine sets the paper on the table and goes to the buffet area for
some orange juice*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan and Dan lead Ellone to a table on the patio by the pool. Allan
gets a grin as Dan, very politely, holds the chair for Ellone.*

Allan: I'm good and hungry, the food looks very good here.....Did you
think up any fun things to do today, Ellone?

*Allan glances over wher Nick is walking away.* I was really angry with
him last night, not showing like that. I wonder what happened to him?
Whatever happened must be why he didn't show. I'll have to find out
later. Maybe the detectives will have something by then.


*Suddenly someone reaches around and covers Allan's eyes.*

Sarah: Guess who.

Allan: Surely an angel, *laughs* a Sarah-phim, I would guess.

Sarah laughs: You, are a funny person, Mr. Baker.

*Allan gets up and holds the chair for Sarah. Life is good again.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone:Glad you could joined us sarah*looks at Allan*hmm fun how about a
swimming competition?

Sarah:poor Elle her life revolves around a pool

Ellone:no it doesnt!!*folds her arms and looks away*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Come on, that wouldn't be fair.

* Daniel laughs and looks around, noticing a couple of new faces. Man,
is this place popular or..? Nah, I gotta cool down my paranoia. *

Daniel: Anyway, I saw some shooting equipment before. Is someone filming
a movie or something?

Post by oldwrench » July 20th, 2007, 8:38 pm

Allan, his eyes stuck on Sarah, smiles: I'd love to get in a bit of
swimming, but no racing, I don't want to look too bad. I'm sure there
are plenty of other things to do here.....There does seem to be a lot of
camera equipment around. I wonder what's up........Oh, and that lady
over there, I'm sure I've seen her picture, I think she's a writer.
Maybe it has something to do with her?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine takes her glass of orange juice out to the patio near the
pool where she sees several other guests dining. She hears one of them
ask a question about the camera equipment around and remembers Yoriko.
Katherine goes up to the group sipping her juice*

Katherine: I think the girl I met yesteday is a model or something, she
sure looked like one.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*There was a knock on the door and Yoriko answered it. There was a man
holding a box who entered without saying a thing.*

Yoriko: Well, polite as ever, aren't you, Chuck?

Chuck: Don't call me Chuck, it's Marcellus now.

Yoriko: ... ...You changed your name... again? Couldn't you at least
pick a nice name this time?

Chuck/Marcellus: Hey! What's wrong with Marcellus. I think it makes me
look very sophisticated.

Yoriko: Whatever.. What's in the box?

Marcellus: Ah, you're gonna loooovee this.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel looks at the woman, as if he remembered her from somewhere.
Wasn't she in that library when Jenny was launching her book? *

Daniel: A model? Wow, now that's something I want to see.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: That would be that Asian looking girl. This is a nice area to
stage a photo shoot. It might be interesting to see how they do things.
(As if I haven't seen it before. Just what we need, some stuck up little
prima donna who thinks the world owes her everything. Their wining puts
everyone in a bad mood. Maybe we can just get away somewhere.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Marcellus tossed the box to Yoriko and Yoriko caught it. She opened it
and found a silver hairpin with a pattern on it. Yoriko smiled and got
it out. She quickly twisted her hair up into a messy knot and used the
pin to keep it all together.*

Yoriko: Thank you... Marcellus.

Marcellus: No problem. I saw it in a store and thought you would like to
have it.

Yoriko: Now that that's done, would you mind explaining why you're
really here? You only buy me things when you need something I won't like.

*Marcellus nervously shuffles his feet and looks anywhere but at Yoriko.*

Marcellus: Well... How do I say this?

*Yoriko waits "patiently" for Marcellus to reply, but when he doesn't:*

Yoriko: Out with it!

Marcellus: Your-male-counter-part-for-the-shoot-is-Joe.

Yoriko: ... You said... What?!

Marcellus: Please-don't-kill-me!!! I knew that if you knew you would
never take this job! He's your ex after all.

*It stayed silent untill Yoriko sighed and turned towards the door.*

Yoriko: Let's just go, there's no way I'll quit now. But not because you
gave me this hairpin, but because they won't be able to find another
model in time.

*Yoriko walked out the door and left Marcellus alone in her room.
Marcellus put his sunglasses on his messy brown hair and rubbed his
eyes. He put them back on and straightened his mis-matched clothes,
before following Yoriko.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Allan stands up and introduces himself and the others to Katherine,
then asks her name.*

Allan, after hearing her name: Ah, I knew I had seen you before, when I
noticed you writing yesterday. You're with Sakura publishing, I believe.
Won't you join us for breakfast? (Damn, Summers, it was her mother's book
store that my father's company forced to sell out. What if she finds out
who I am. She could hate me, this could be messy. Oh lord, the sins of
the fathers.......as if I've been any better.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah: so what kind of book do you write???

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine smiles and sits at the table with the others*

Katherine: Well, I've found I write best when I don't have a
predetermined idea and I just let my characters expand naturally. So...
haha! I don't really know what my book is about!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: That's an interesting way of writing, letting your characters
write it for you. It must feel like writing the script for a movie
projected in your mind, uh?

* Daniel takes a bite of bread and sips some orange juice. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine lights up*

Katherine: Yes! Exactly! It's exactly like that!

*Katherine starts babbling and gesticulating*

Katherine: It's like I can see every situation played out and I mean
yeah, sometimes I'll have to go back in the story and see if the plot is
advancing or if I'm just writing nonsense but it's just so motivating!
Like my characters are real people in real situations and they're just
reacting to the situations they are presented with provided their
limitations, be it human or mage or whatever. Life is what we make it
because it is us living moment to moment reacting to the situations we
have to face. So I figure, why not write my stories the same way?
Unfortunately, my characters always seem to turn out like me because I
put myself into the character's situation and I try and figure what I
would do. I guess I'll have to be a better actress to be able to write
better stories....

*Katherine looks down sadly, rembering her father's acting career, or
what she had been told of it, and wishing she could ask him for advice*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: That's interesting. That is how the Japanese author Yoshitoshi
Abe wrote the story Haibane Renmei. It's one of my favorite
anime.......Ah, Japanese anime is one of the few things I took time to
enjoy. (Oops, great, now they'll all think I'm wierd or something.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katherine: Yes, I've heard that. I've read the first one of the series
and I must say it's very well done. If I could draw then I'd give a go
at writing anime, but I can't so I just stick to writing novels.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Oh, novels are great. Did you know that the animes, Crest of the
Stars and Banner of the Stars are both based not on Manga but on novels
by Hiroyuki Morioka? (Wow, someone else is interested in anime and manga.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katherine: No, no I didn't know that. That's very interesting. Of course
it's not to say that all movies are based off books in the first place.
Sometimes a book is made after a movie, which I think takes away the
creativity the book should have in the first place. A book lets our
minds soar and create without limits or preconcieved concepts. When a
book is based off of a movie, I think those limitations are set, thus
limiting the book itself.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Nick sighs and leaves Rubes who is obviously not listening to him. He
sits down in a chair next to the pool and quickly falls asleep.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Yoriko quickly got something to drink before walking to the shoot.
'This is going to be a looooong day,' Yoriko thought.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katherine: Anyways, I was thinking... when we're done with breakfast how
about we all go check out the shoot?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Rube in a trance, looking at both Katherine and all the camera
equipment snaps out of it. He looks over at Nick as he takes a seat by
the pool. Rube Shrugs and takes a seat next to Nick, and slaps him on
the knees*

Rube: Sorry, Peanut. Spaced out there for a moment. Some rescuer I am,
Hahaha. Um, You can just call me, Rube.

*Rube offers his hands to shake*

Rube: Also sorry about the wet clothes, but guess we?re both in the same
boat. Heh. I actually lost my luggage, back at the airport. My sister
graduated yesterday which I missed. My rental broke down on me, and this
isn't even the hotel I was suppose to staying it, the other one lost my
reservation. Hahaha! Some mess I'm in. huh?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah: Oh, that sounds like lots of fun, Katherine. I've never seen a
photo shoot, I've always wondered how they get those fabulous shots.

Allan laughs: They just take hundreds of shots and pick the best.
Photoshop helps a lot too. Some of those photographers could make
Rosanne look like a glamor queen. We can go and watch, it might get
interesting. (Right, you can find out how fussy and nasty these pampered
little princesses get........Someday, Sarah, I'll have one of them take
a portrait of you, just of me.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daniel: Well, I'm all set to go, then!

* Daniel pats his stomach and lays back on the chair, four empty plates
next to him. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan holds the chair for Sarah: Ok, let's go see how things are done.
*Laughs at Dan* Think you can make it out of the chair. They say our
brain uses a lot of energy, maybe that's why you're so smart.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*katherine laughs and gets up with the others to head over to the photo
shoot on the beach*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel laughs with them and follows to the beach. *

Daniel: Maybe. Then again, people at college always told me I should go
to one of those eating competitions!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone laughs as she is about to follow them to the beach someone grab
her wrist making her turn*

Ellone:Jennifer?what the-

Jennifer:You've got trainning sanders so going with them will only...
*Ellone shook off her hand and looks at her angry*

Ellone:what are you my mum?

???:At least she's keeping in you in shape for the competition to come Elle

*Ellone looks up to see a woman similar to her but long hair and much
taller than her,*

Ellone:Emma?what are you doing here????

Emma:thought i'll see how your doing here and trained you

Ellone:i dont need your help and most of all from you!!

Emma:how about a little warm up just sister agaist sister

Ellone:fine*ellone walks pass Emma to her room to change leaving her
sister smiling as she goes to the 50 meter pool area reserve for them.*

*Yoriko saw Katherine and the others and thought: 'Just great... Why
don't we get some spectators to see me argue with my ex... Guess it
can't be helped.'*

Marcellus: Are you okay? You seem to be spaced out.

Yoriko: I'm fine, Chu-- I mean, Marcellus.

*Yoriko smiled at him briefly before turning towards Joe.*

Yoriko: Don't do anything funny.

Joe: I won't, I promise.

*Joe smiled sweetly.*

Yoriko: Whatever.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine looks up and sees Yoriko. She smiles and waves to Yoriko*

Katherine: HEY!!! Yoriko!!

*Katherine jogs up to Yoriko with a smile*

Katherine: How's it going?

((lol. guess her hangover is gone. oh wait, she took asprin ok! all
fixed! lmao))

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel, who had heard Ellone and the other two women discuss, looks
back, wondering if he should stay by the pool to see Ellone race her
sister or to go down to the beach to see the shoot. Hmm... Ok, let's go
take a quick look at the shoot then come back. He walks down to the
beach following Katherine. *

Daniel: Man... everything here looks expensive.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Ellone entered the pool area,she was about to walk away when a group of
people came to her asking for her autograph she sigh and looks up at her
sister*

Ellone:A warm-up huh?

Emma:Jennifer could'nt keep her mouth shut and beside it willl be good
publicity for Kate

*Ellone throws her bag on a chair near the pool and removes her clothes
to reveal her blue speedo swimsuit*

Emma*wearing a black speedo swimsuit smiles*:50 meter breastroke and the
return is freestyle...

Ellone:just make it 100 freestsyle stroke

Emma:you still want to beat me on that stroke

Ellone:i could care less*walks to her diving block*she made sure to have
all this people here so i wonnt go back...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Yoriko turned around and smiled at Katherine.*

Yoriko: Hey. You seem to have recovered. Things are going just perfect.
Turns out my counterpart is my ex... So that means we'll probably argue
more than actually do something else. It's not like we hate each other
or anything, though. It's just that he tends to do weird things during
the shoots which basically messes up the photo...

*Yoriko sighed and shook her head.*

Yoriko: Guess I'll just have to put up with it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Katherine: aww. I'm sorry... What kind of pictures are you going to be
taking?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel walked ahead towards the film crew, looking at all the
equipment they had. *

Daniel: Wow, that's a 16.7 Mega-pixels Canon camera!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yoriko: They're pictures for a magazine with tips to become a model and
things you'll have to do when you're a model. There's also a special
article in there this time with fashion or something, which means lot's
of designer clothes.

*Yoriko smiled.*

*Marcellus heard what Daniel said and turned towards him.*

Marcellus: It looks like you know a lot about this stuff. Most
spectators only know it's a good camera.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel answered Marcellus without looking at him, since he was still
examining all the equipment. *

Daniel: Well, I had to work for some time with a profesional
photographer in an Artificial Vision System back in college. Since then
it's been kind of a hobby.

* Searches on his pocket and shows Marcellus a Sony DSC-N2
<http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/sto ... d=11040733>
10 Mega-pixels camera. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*As the whistle is blow the swimmers dive into the pool,making a perfect
streamline at the start but Ellone was the first to breathe while Emma
pops up a bit later but that didnt stop Ellone from reaching the same
distance as her*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel hears the whistle from the pool and jumps up. *

Daniel: Oh, they started already! Be back in a while!

* Daniel runs to the pool while turning on his camera. He starts taking
pictures as soon as he gets there. *

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan looks ar Sarah: Ellone really is good, isn't she. Who is she
racing with? They both are good. (Hmm, this Yoriko seems like a pretty
nice girl, that's a rarety. I'll have to mention her name to a few
people. girls who are easy to work with are hard to find.)

*Without really thinking about it, Allan grabs Sarah's hand and squeezes
it.*

Allan: Come on Ellone, you can do it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarah*blushes but her eyes are still on the race*:Thats Emma,Ellone's
older sister,You can say that the only person that could understand
Ellone is Emma but the rivalry between these two are to great for them
to accept their relationship as sisters

*As Emma reaches the end she does a perfect tumble turn underwater and
Glides under the water like a mermaid followed by ellone doing the same
both of them were now the same level*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan, watching the race: I don't have any sisters or brothers, I guess
I just couldn't understand. But rivalry, and competition, well, those I
know all to well.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*At the mention of sisters and brothers (even though she couldn't hear
clearly) Yoriko looked away. Even though it had been a couple of years
already, Yoriko didn't like to talk or listen to people talking about
siblings.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* Daniel kneels at the edge of the pool to stabilize the camera. He
takes a couple more pictures then starts cheering Ellone. *

Daniel: Go, Ellone, you can do it!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine notices Yoriko's silence*

Katherine: You ok?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Yoriko quickly looked up with a smile.*

Yoriko: It's nothing. I just thought of something, that's all.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine raises her face to the sunshine and breathes the sea breeze*

Katherine: hmmmm It's so nice here!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Keeping in the competition,the two stays the same level speed*something
is wrong???i know there is???

*Emma reach the end before Ellone.she looks at Ellone as she reaches the
end*

Emma*ignoring the cheers*:why did you slowed down??

Ellone:Funny i was about to ask you the same thing*gets out of the pool
and takes her towel*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yoriko: You're right, it really is nice here.

Marcellus: YO!!! RIKOOO~!

*Yoriko turned around and hit Marcellus on the head when he was within
reach.*

Yoriko: I told you not to do that!

*Yoriko regained her posture and Marcellus rubbed his head.*

Yoriko: What do you want?

Marcellus: The shoot will start soon. You best get prepared.

Yoriko: Okay.

*Yoriko turned back to Katherine and waved briefly before going to the
one organizing the shoot.*

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

*Katherine waved back and then went to get the others*

Katherine: Hey guys! I think they're starting the shoot soon!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Allan: Aw, Ellone didn't win. Actually they both seemed to slow a lot at
the end, that's strange. ...... Oh, Katherine, yes, we should go over
and watch.

Sarah: Oh, Yoriko is so pretty, I want to see how she works her poses,
this is going to be so interesting.

Allan: Yes, that young asian girl look is pretty hot in the industry
right now. (Sure, as interesting as watching paint dry. I'd rather be
going somewhere with you......Well I am here with you. That's what I
really want, pretty lady. I have lots of time.)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ellone*quickly goes to dry up and dress up to meet the others.she lean
her arm on Daniel*:so has it started yet or am did i miss it??
