Sapphire—

“Think about it, Mayor,” I said as I snapped my briefcase shut. “President Diamond’s second daughter is coming of age tomorrow, and Sapphire Town is the venue she has requested."

“But, Ms. Soft,” said the Mayor. “You’re suggesting we close down the whole city for a celebration! There are small businesses, they can't just not come in to work tommorow!"

“Did you not hear the amount of money President Diamond is willing to give to you to rent out your town?” I pressed.

“But you can’t just shut down the city for some silly little girl's Birthday Party!" The look I gave him next forced him to reconsider is next words. “My apologies,” he stammered quickly. “I didn’t mean to—

“Since you refuse to cooperate, I believe that I’m going to have to give the President an unfavorable report,” I said strongly. “Your attitude is unacceptable!”

“Ms. Soft, please,” the Mayor begged. “I was out of line—

“Expect my call this evening,” I said as I walked to the door. "President Diamond is going to want to discuss things further with you...personally."

The Soldier overlooking our transaction opened the door for me and we both walked out of the room, with me smirking slyly to myself.

All according to plan…

Saving money was the biggest part of my Job...

Sapphire Town:

senboumine_town___valley_of_mist_by_sean

(Sapphire Town-A large town located in the midst of the Sapphire Valley. It is named as such because of the unusually abundant amount of Sapphire’s that grew in the numerous caves that surrounded the city. Sapphire Town itself thrives mostly on mining these precious gemstones and providing tourism to visitors since the Town was built right underneath a waterfall that provided entrance to the Sapphire Cave, a cave that spawned edible rocks of Sapphire, known as Sapphire Rocks, and it is said to be quite beautiful to boot.)

Lance—

Even by Dragon, it took us a full two days to reach Sapphire Town from the City Of Light. The original plan was to take it to Launa’s friend, but Millicent suddenly let it go free as soon as we reached the town.

“Go,” she said as she scratched his nose. “You’re free now, no one will ever hurt you again.”

The Dragon rubbed its face against hers before taking flight and flying up into the clouds and into freedom.

“That was the right thing to do,” said Trinity. “Dragons hate humans as it is, so it’s best that we treat them nicely.”

“It’s because of jerks like my dad,” said Millicent. “He keeps occupying the land that these innocent creatures have been living on for centuries and killing them off.”

“It is true,” said Rose. “Dragons were the original Magicians, and it is from them that humans learned Magic. They used to roam the Planet freely, now they are a sad remnant of Crisis in the Past.”

“Hmmm,” began Amberlin. “Dragon Heartstring can fetch a hefty price to the right buyer—

“Is that all you care about?” Trinity asked. “Money this—money that, you’re worse than Diamond, Amberlin!”

“Hey, I steal so that I can support my family back home!” Amberlin boasted.

“Where are you from anyways?” Millicent asked.

“The Eastern Nation,” said Amberlin. “The Village Yang. Of course, none of you probably care about its existence anyways. After the Great War, my people lost everything. And now, my parents can barely support themselves and—,” Amberlin suddenly paused, looked around at us, and jumped. “Eep!” she squeaked. “Why am I talking about this?!”

“Let’s just keep moving,” I said as I pushed through the city gates.

“Roger Dodger,” Millicent said.

As we entered the city, we were surprised to see that the town was in the middle of what looked like preparations for a celebration.

“To the left!” one of the citizens yelled to a person putting up a sign. “Watch it!”

“Is the Bakery closed for the evening?”

“I’m sorry, sir, but all of our stocks are being used for the Parade tomorrow. My apologies!”

“What’s going on here?” asked Trinity. “It looks like there’s going to be a big party—

“Hey, you!” Hunter roared at a random civilian who was walking by.

The man stopped in his tracks and jumped in fear.

“Uh, yes sir?” he asked Hunter fearfully.

“What’s going on here? Why are people putting up decorations and shit for?!” Hunter asked.

“Tomorrow is the Parade for the President’s second daughter,” the man explained. “She’s coming of age, and has decided to hold her party here.”

“Thank you,” said Trinity.

“Oh man,” Millicent sighed. “I forgot my stupid sister’s birthday was tomorrow.”

“Ooooh, will I get to meet my other Niece?” asked Rose.

“You wouldn’t want to,” said Millicent. “She’s a spoiled brat! Daddy’s perfect little Princess. That jerk forced me into a marriage, but he’s letting her choose her partner, isn’t that a kick in the teeth?”

“This Parade sounds like fun,” Amberlin exclaimed. “Why don’t we stay for it?”

“I say we stay to find a faster way to get to Port Royale,” I suggested. "Wonder if the Underground Shuttle is still up."

“Why are we going to Port Royale?” asked Trinity. “Don’t tell me we’re crossing the Ocean to the Eastern Nation!”

“Atreyu isn’t too far in front of us,” said Millicent. “Can’t we catch up with him before he crosses the Ocean?”

“Even if we do, then what?” I pressed. “He’s too strong. We can’t rush into this—

“But, Lance, the farther we go, the more danger we’ll be in,” Trinity said. “To cross to the other side of the World is a long trip. What if we get stranded over there and run out of money?”

“You can stay at my place!” Amberlin exclaimed. “My folks won’t mind!”

“I just got a feeling that Atreyu has something really bad planned and that we need to be at our absolute strongest to face him,” I explained.

“Hell, do we even know where that son of a bitch is trying to get to?” Hunter asked.

“No idea,” I replied. “But my instincts are telling me that we need to follow him to the Eastern Nation.”

Everyone sighed.

“Well, I guess we’ll have to do it,” Trinity said.

“Why don’t we just rest up for the night?” asked Millicent. “My butt hurts from sitting on those Dragon Scales, I need a good lie down—

“Eeeeeek!” someone screamed.

“Gasp!” yelled Amberlin. “A shriek of terror!”

“Somebody save her!” another person screamed.

The six of us looked up to the Waterfall overlooking the city and saw a young girl balancing on the rocks above.

“Oh my God,” Trinity gasped. “She’s gonna fall—

“Looks like she’s gonna jump to me,” Amberlin muttered.

“Lance,” Millicent said as she grabbed my hand.

“Man,” I complained. “Why do we get caught up in saving people in every town we go through?”

“Lance, please!” Trinity pleaded.

“Fine,” I grunted.

Just as the girl jumped off the top of the cliff, I leapt up through the air towards her falling body. As she was halfway to the water below, I caught her. Cradling her limp body in my arms, my feet planted against the wall and I propelled myself down into the water.

We didn’t land in too deep a part, but I did have to swim her to land and drag her unconscious body out of the water.

“I think she’s unconscious,” I gasped.

“No other choice then,” said a bystander. “Young man, you have to give her mouth-to-mouth—

“Do I really?” I asked.

“Lance, you have to save her!” yelled Trinity.

“Arghhh,” I groaned.

I slowly grabbed her hand and held my two fingers to her wrist, checking for a pulse—

“Lance, what the hell are you doing?” asked Trinity as she put her hands on her hips. “She’s gonna die if you don’t stop goofing off!”

“I’m Checking for Signs of Life!” I argued. “It’s the first step of CPR!”

“No, no,” said Amberlin. “They don’t do that anymore.”

“News to me,” I said.

“Come on, Lance,” said Millicent.

“Will you three get off my back—?

“Hey, you better hurry!” Hunter yelled. “She’s turnin’ purple!”

Without another word, I took a deep breath and pressed my mouth up against the young girls own and breathed into it. However, as the breath barely left my mouth, however, I felt her tongue fly into my own mouth. She held the back of my head and kissed me hard.

“Mmmmmmmmmmmwa!” she squeaked as we kissed.

“Mmmmphf,” I groaned as I tried to pull away.

When she was finally done, I pried my lips from hers and fell backwards, breathing heavily.

“Thank you for saving me!” the girl sang as she sprung up to her feet.

“You were faking being unconscious!” yelled Trinity. “I knew it! Lance, I told you that you shouldn’t have saved her!”

“Yeah,” Millicent agreed. “You used heroics as an excuse to get close to her!”

“Why you!” Amberlin exclaimed. “And you’re supposed to be marrying me, Lance!”

“Wait, how on Crisis is this my fault?!” I exclaimed. “Why would you do something like that anyways?”

“Because I knew a handsome guy would come swooping in to save me,” the girl giggled. “And I wasn’t in any danger anyways.”

“You sly little fox,” said Amberlin. “But I like your style, sister!”

“As a reward for saving me, I am cordially inviting you and your friends over to my house for dinner,” said the young girl.

“But we can’t—

“Shut it, Lance,” yelled Hunter. “Don’t ya know it’s bad manners to reject hospitality?”

“Seriously,” I groaned. “All of you are beginning to really piss me off!”  

***

“You have our thanks,” said the young girls’ Mother with a bow to me. “You’ve done so much for Lily.”

“All in a day’s work,” I replied.

“We don’t have much,” said the Mother. “But our home is open to you from now on. Whenever you’re in Sapphire Town, always feel free to spend the night here.”

“Hmmm,” Amberlin hummed from the refrigerator. “Steak, steak, steak, steak, steak, steak, EGGS! Steak, steak, steak, steak—

“Why do you keep saying that?” asked Trinity.

“Cuz I’m in the mood for a big hunkin’ slice of meat!” Amberlin sang as she continued to look through the refrigerator.

“Amberlin,” said Rose. “Do you really think you can raid their supply of food like that? What will they do when Winter comes?”

“Now listen to me, honey,” said Amberlin as she turned around, a pickle in her mouth. “You’re gonna learn that sometimes, a frog has just gotta jump!”

“Oh, I see,” said Rose with a look of fascination. “I am sure that Proverb will come in handy some day!”

“Oh geez,” Millicent sighed. “Amberlin is an idiot, and my Aunt it too gullible and naïve to recognize that she’s dumb—OW!” Millicent screamed as a half-eaten pickle hit her in the head. “I was kidding, Amberlin!”

“I’m back!” Lily sang as she pranced into the living room.

Lily Larkinson(1).png

(Lily Larkinson)

Lily was a young girl that couldn't be any older than eighteen with long, caramel brown hair and sky blue eyes. At the moment, she was wearing what appeared to be a black, sleeveless, zip up tank top that stopped at her mid torso, exposing her abdominal region. With it, she was also wearing matching black shorts.

“So? How do I look, Lance?” she asked as she spun around in a circle.

“Uh, nice?” I said nervously.

“Oh I get it,” Trinity puffed. “Some random girl changes her clothes and you wet yourself. I do my hair, paint my nails, and wear a nice dress and I don’t get squat!”

“Trin,” I began. “That was seven years ago—

“I don’t care!” she said as she closed her eyes and folded her arms. “I’m still mad at you for that!”

“Amberlin,” said Lily’s mother. “How hungry are you? Dinner is still in the oven and will be ready soon."

Amberlin gulped a mouthful of milk from its carton before resting it down.

“He-he-he,” she laughed. “Sorry, we just haven’t eaten in two days.”

“Oh, I understand,” said Lily’s mother with a nod. “Traveling these days is very dangerous. I assume you all are heading to Port Royale if you came this far north. Unless you’re traveling to the Northern Icicle Colonies, of course. I hear the Icicle Caves are a sight to behold this time of the year.”

“We’re heading to Port Royale,” I said as I sat down at the table. “But it’s dangerous by foot because we’d have to cross the Stormy Plains. Are the Underground Shuttles still working?”

“Yes,” replied Lily’s mother. “They are, but they’ve been rented out to the Military tomorrow. You’d have to stay an extra two days to use it.”

“Wait, what’s going on?” asked Millicent. “Why are they renting out the Shuttles?”

“President Diamond’s daughter appears to be interested in using it since she has never ridden it before,” said Lily’s mother.

“Millicent,” said Trinity. “You don’t think you can, I dunno, see if your sister can help us out?”

“No!” said Millicent as she folded her arms. “I’ll never ask that spoiled brat for help! I don’t even want to see her tomorrow! I can already picture her gloating face, smiling at everyone and looking down on them like she’s above us all.”

“You miss her,” said Trinity observantly. “Don’t you?”

“I-I-I do not!” Millicent exclaimed as she blushed.

“Please, Millicent,” I said. “We need you to do this for us.”

She looked at me, blushed even harder, and pouted.

“Oh alright,” she mumbled. “I’ll go and talk to her tomorrow…”

***

The next morning, the streets were cleared, banners were hung up, and confetti was raining from the rooftops. There was also a Circus performing, playing really loud and annoying music to initiate the beginning of Millicent’s younger sisters Birthday Celebration.

“What the hell is that music?!” Amberlin yelled as she joined everyone in the living room, her hands over her ears in annoyance. “I need my Beauty Sleep!”

“The party is starting!” Lily yelled. “Oh, mommy, can’t I go out and join them—please?!”

“Now young lady,” began Lily’s mother. “There are all sorts of sinful activities that will be going on out there today…be home by seven.”

“Thanks, mom!” Lily exclaimed. “Come on, Lance, let’s go have fun!”

“Lily,” I began as she took my hand. “I really appreciate everything you’ve done for me, but I can’t have you come with us.”

“But, Lance, we’re destined to be together,” she said.

“I know,” I said.

“Say what now?” asked Trinity.

“I can’t get you involved in all that we’re caught up with,” I explained. “I want you to stay here and take care of your mom, okay?”

Lily turned away from me and folded her arms against her chest, her eyes closed.

“Hmph, I guess I can do that,” she scoffed. “Dummy!”

We bid the two of them farewell and exited the house to approach the Parade.

“What a nice girl,” Rose sighed.

“A little too touchy for my taste,” Trinity muttered.

“LANCE!” I heard someone from behind me yell.

I turned around and saw Lily running towards me.

“Lily?” I said.

She stopped in front of me and put her hands on her knees, panting heavily.

“I forgot to give you this,” she said as she held out a Sapphire gemstone.

“Lily,” I gasped. “I can’t take this! Where did you get a Summoning Gem anyways?!”

“It’s my lucky charm, I got it from my dad!” she yelled as she forced it into my fingers. “You better bring it back to me!”

“But, Lily, I can't—

“Oh just kiss me, you fool!” she yelled as she went on her tip toes and kissed me for the second time.

“Lily!” I yelled.

“Hee-hee,” she giggled. “We’re gonna get married when you come back, Lance.”

I sighed.

“Okay,” I said. “Count on it, just keep safe okay? Now go back to your mother.”

She smiled at me before turning around and skipping back to her house.

“Lance,” Trinity thundered. “You have kissed every other whore or slut during this whole trip, but you have neglected me the whole time!”

“I-I’m sorry,” I stammered. “I don’t want every girl we come across to have the hots for me! It just…happens—

“Oh, so we’re supposed to feel sorry for you because you’re a player?” Amberlin asked as she poked me. “Is that it Puff-Daddy?”

“Yeah,” said Millicent as she poked me as well. “You think you’re hot stuff don’t you?”

“Well guess what?” Trinity asked as she too poked me. “You’re not so special.”

“Stop pokin' me!” I yelled.

“Guys,” said Hunter. “Look, who is that over there? Is that Millicent’s sister?”

We all looked over to the center of the crowd and saw Millicent’s sister emerge from a white limo and onto the sidewalk.

Aurora Diamond(1).jpg

(Aurora Diamond)

Millicent’s sister had the same pink hair, blue eyes combination. But unlike Millicent, her sisters’ hair was a much darker shade of pink, and her eyes a paler blue.

She was dressed in a short and frilly black dress with matching heels.

“Aurora,” Millicent muttered in a mixed tone of love and hatred.

“That’s her name?” asked Hunter.

“Yes,” Millicent muttered.

We were just about to go over to her when the streets were suddenly cut off by Diamond Soldiers.

“The streets are to be cleared immediately for the President’s Daughter,” one of them yelled.

“We’ll get her later,” I said. “When there aren’t so many guards around.”

We all turned around and started walking away when suddenly, someone screamed.

“HEY, YOU!”

I turned around and saw a Diamond Officer jogging towards me.

“Can I help you, sir?” I asked.

“The hell do you think you’re doing still walking around the place dressed like that?” the Officer roared.

“What?” I exclaimed.

“Thought you could play hooky and skip out on your Parade Performance, eh? Well, I have a shiny new promotion I’m expecting from this, and I won’t be ruined by the likes of you! Now come on, Soldier! What Squad are you in?”

“Squad?” I exclaimed. “But I’m not—

I looked down on my arm and suddenly remembered that I still had the Military tattoo that was branded on my right shoulder back when I was still just a lowly Soldier. Now, why did I have to go and wear a sleeveless outfit?

“Meh, I’ll bother you with the details later, now move it, Soldier!”

Not wanting to start a fight or draw too much attention, I nervously glanced back at everyone else who could only watch as I followed the Officer to the barracks…

***

“The hell is your Uniform at?!” he roared at me.

“I don’t—

“Who cares,” he said. “There’s a spare in that cabinet over there, put it on—and don’t you look at me while you undress!”

“What?!” I exclaimed.

I walked over to the cabinet and immediately got to putting on the uniform.

Disguising as a Soldier again...

Why…oh why did I always get myself wrapped up in these situations?

Oh wait, maybe this could turn to my advantage!

There was only a handful of Soldiers escorting Aurora to Port Royale, but they had extra uniforms.

Did people just decide not to report in today?

Regardless, what if we all just pretended to be Soldiers and hitch a ride with them?

That way, Millicent wouldn't have to endanger herself by getting involved with her sister.

It was a stretch, but I think it could work…

“Hey,” I said to the Officer. “Can I make a phone call?”

“Fine,” he grumbled. “I’ll be right back, but don’t you go anywhere!”

As he walked out, I pulled out my Cell-Pad and dialed Trinity’s number at once.

“Lance!” she exclaimed. “Are you alright?”

“I’m fine,” I whispered. “Listen, we can ride the Shuttle disguised as Soldiers, I’m in the Barracks right now, and they have a ton of uniforms here that we can take.”

“Lance, that’s perfect!” Trinity exclaimed. “But how do we get in?”

“You need to have a Military I.D. Card, but Hunter should still have his, that should wave you in.”

“Okay, we’ll meet you on the Shuttle then!” Trinity replied.

I hung up just as the Officer came back in, flanked by two other Soldiers.

“Alright, now listen up,” said the Officer. “This celebration is very important to the President, so the Military has to do its best to make him and the future of our Nation happy. Now, you three are late as it is, so you’re gonna have to be sent in with the Special Forces guys in place of the original trio. They’re assholes, but your tardiness seems to have some positive effects, since you will be standing mere feet from the President’s daughter herself.”

“But, sir,” asked one of the Soldiers. “Why are we being sent in with Special Forces, wasn’t there a Squad assigned to that?”

“Well, there was,” said the Officer. “But they’re AWOL…double crossing bastards! I told them not to drink too much last night! And we’re shorthanded as it is. You are the Diamond Military’s finest, don’t disappoint me!”

“They say they’re airing the Parade on live T.V.,” said the other Soldier. “Oh man, I’m gonna be famous!”

“The President’s Daughter is a real hottie too,” said the first Soldier. “I’d love for her to look down on me and treat me like a pig!”

“Don’t get too cocky, kid,” the Officer scoffed. “Now go! Make me proud, boys!”

***

We were not allowed to wear our masks while guarding Aurora Diamond, which made me nervous. If someone recognized me, I was screwed to say the least.

And I was mere feet from the current members of Special Forces.

Surely they would have seen a picture or heard of me because of my work with Seth and Atreyu in their division...

"Hey, that man, the Soldier over there," said the young female Agent.

"I know, he looks familiar," another Agent replied

"Sir," said the third Agent to me. "Identification please."

"Sorry," I said. "I have a job to do. I don't have time to mess around with you guys."

"You heard him," said the female Agent as her fingers wrapped around the hilt of her Sword.

"Hey," said one the Soldiers that was accompanying me. "Leave the guy alone, you Special Forces jerks!"

"Sir, I'm going to have to ask you to step back," said the second Agent.

"You guys think you're better than us huh?!" said the third Soldier I was with.

A fight was sure to break out, if it were not for the arrival of Aurora, which caused the observant Special Forces Agents to drop their curiosity. 

As I stood in front of Aurora's limo, watching her wave to the crowd of cheerful onlookers, I could see the contrast in her and Millicent, but at the same time, I could see their similarities. We escorted her all the way to the edge of the city where an outdoor luncheon was prepared for her and led her to her table.

I don’t know if I was imagining it or not, but she was sending me a lot of looks and smiles.

I really hope I was imagining it…

I mean, not that she wasn’t bad looking or anything. Actually she, looked pretty good.

But considering that Millicent isn’t too fond of her as it is…

And Millicent and I were...well it appears that she liked me...

Not to mention that something was supposed to be going on between Trinity and I...

God, it was more than enough to make my head spin.

I mean everytime I-

“Soldier,” she said to me.

“Oh,” I exclaimed. “Yes?”

“Didn’t you hear me? I choose you,” she laughed.

“Choose me?” I asked. “For what?”

At this point, everyone was looking at me.

“To be my Personal Escort of course,” she giggled. “It’s customary that during my celebration that I select a Soldier to lead me to my Private Shuttle and that Soldier is you.”

“M-m-m-m-me?!” I stammered. “You choose me?!”

 “Yes,” she giggled.

“Oh,” I said with a blush.

“But first we have lunch,” said Aurora as she took my arm.

Aurora led me to her reserved table right outside of the finest Restaurant that Sapphire Town had to offer, the famous Sapphire Restaurant (Okay, I know, cities have a sense of pride in naming key landmarks and buildings after it). It was known worldwide for having the best foods on the Western Continent.

“Good day, madam,” said our waiter. “We have the finest selection of foods prepared for your birthday celebration. What is it that you require?”

“Caviar as my appetizer and a cup of Yang Tea to drink…and it better be straight from the Village Yang, I know how to detect the artificial stuff.”

“But of course, madam,” said the waiter with a bow. “Only the best for you. And what will your escort have?”

“Uh,” I began. “You have any Fruit Punch?”

Aurora laughed at me.

“No need to be modest, Soldier,” she laughed. “He’ll have tea as well!”

“But,” I began. “I really wanted Fruit Punch,” I whispered to myself.

***  

Within seconds our drinks and appetizers were brought out—two bowls of Caviar, as well as two warm cups of Tea.

“What will you be having as your main entree?” asked our waiter.

“Fried Rice,” said Aurora.

“J-j-j-just Fried Rice, madam?” asked the waiter nervously.

“Of course,” she laughed. “And I would like Vanilla Cake for dessert, with fresh strawberries on top.”

“A-a-a-and as for your escort—?

“The same,” she said strongly as she stirred three cubes of sugar into her Tea. “Now please, you have exhausted the time you are worthy enough of having to stand in my presence. I do not wish to see you again.”

The waiter then bowed and excused himself from our table.

As if a sufferer of Bi-Polar Disorder, the mild annoyance she had disappeared as she smiled widely at me.

“Uh,” I began as I reached out for the sugar.

Swiftly, her hands outstretched as well and held mines in place.

“Please, don’t feel nervous,” she said softly. “I’ve been looking for a man like you for a long time.”

“A man like me?” I asked. “I might be a little too old for you—

“Haven’t you heard that age is just a number?” she giggled. “Besides, you’re not that much older than me are you? You’ve just turned 21 this year.”

I narrowed my eyes as I removed my hand from hers.

“How do you know my age?” I asked.

“Hee-hee-hee,” she laughed. “You’d be surprised how much you can gather on someone from just a picture, Lance Blade.”

Oh no, she knew who I was!

“Let’s see,” she said to herself as she began to click away at her Cell-Pad. “You were born in the City of Diamond, you were a Soldier for a year before being promoted to be a Special Forces Agent for five years, and most interestingly, you are a wanted man—there’s a 50 million Credit Bounty on your head. What is wrong with the World when someone so talented goes so bad?”

“So what’s your game?” I asked. “You’ve got me, now what do you want?”

“Nothing,” she laughed. “I don’t care about daddy’s enemies, but I do care about how you make me feel.”

“How I make you feel?” I asked.

No...no this was not happening. Figuring out that I was a criminal was one thing, but what I did NOT have the energy to deal with was another woman in my life!

“Yes, has anyone told you that you're pretty cute?” Aurora giggled. “Now drink your Tea, make it look as if you’re enjoying yourself with me, do you know how many men would kill to be sitting this closely to me?”

“You probably had this drugged,” I observed. “I’m not drinking it—

“Oh?” she asked. “So you want me to expose that you’re impersonating a Soldier?”

Shit.

“Or,” she added. “How about the five little insects accompanying you? I can spot them a mile away, even in this crowd. Just one word, Lance my dear, just a snap of my fingers and I can have them all executed in front of everyone, and no one will utter a word of hesitation. So do you see it fit to test my patience, or are you going to be a good little boy and drink-your-Tea?”

I had to admit…she was good.

Slowly, I gripped the handles of my tea cup and lifted it up to my lips. I took in a miniscule amount of the warm liquid, but I suddenly felt a foot gently placed between my legs. The shock of the gesture made me shiver so badly that I inhaled more Tea down the wrong throat pipe, forcing me to cough, tears coming to my eyes.

“What’s wrong?” Aurora giggled as she pointed her toes and began to rotate them clockwise against me.

“What the hell are you doing?” I muttered. "What kinda stunt is this?! We haven't even had Lunch yet!"

“Oh my,” she whispered. “I feel you getting hard Lance, hee-hee-hee—

“Cut it out,” I stammered. "It's not because I'm attracted to you or anything, it's just a mans reflexive instinct!"

“What’s that?” she giggled. “Go faster? Oh Lance, you’re such a bad boy—

“Oh-oh…AH!” I squeaked.

“Hee-hee-hee, hee-hee-hee,” she giggled again.

“Quit it,” I said.

“Oh, Lance,” Aurora laughed. “I can’t believe I’ve turned you on so quickly. Oh you’re flattering me—do you really think I’m that pretty?”

"Why do you Diamond girls move so fast?!"

"What?" Aurora gasped. "So Millie is here!"

“Lunch,” declared our new waiter. “Is served!”

To my fortune (or my misfortune, depending on how you look at things), Aurora hastily removed her foot from against me and smiled up at our new waiter as he rested a large platter of steaming hot fried rice in the center of our table.

“Thank you so much,” said Aurora.

“Yeah, thanks,” I groaned...
