z023 Posted November 21, 2011 Share Posted November 21, 2011 May 12th, 2027 Sakura had taken a break from the flurry of dealing with the creche, Teragen politics, nova history, and the course of the future. She was in the large garden behind her apartment, reclining in a hammock made of her silk and tied between two trees and overlooking the statue of the king at the center of the garden, when a porter gently shook her shoulder to wake her up. The boy, no more than eleven but with the pride of a child trusted with important duties, smiled at her and bobbed his head respectfully, "Mlle Sakura, Mlle Coraline souhaite vous rencontrer. Dois-je l'amenar à vous?" She blinked awake, her mind taking a moment to catch up with the question, "Mlle Coraline? Uh...um, oui. S'il vous plaît ont apporté des rafraîchissements sur le balcon et la voie ici. Merci, Jean." She wasn't quite sure who this Miss Coraline was, though she thought she'd heard the name a few times before; she was in Kinshasa and knew that any visitors would be well-screened by the Palace guards and staff before being allowed in, though, so there was little reason not to play the proper hostess. She slid out of the hammock and made her way up to the staircase/balcony, resettling herself just as the refreshments arrived (she'd learned earlier that a small kitchen had been set up just for her only a little ways down the hall from her quarters). She sipped at the fresh limeade juice that had become a favorite of hers in the past few weeks while she awaited her unexpected visitor. The garden smelled pleasantly of warmth, flowers, and of course, sweet cherry blossoms. Sakura's Presence Tactful is in effect. Coraline's social shield quite sufficiently bypassed Object of Desire, and Health negates the pheromones. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
