The following day I came early to our new studio – the scent of cooking was all around. “You’re early today, Mitarashi-san.” I greeted Yuki as I came in with a bag of groceries. “I couldn’t sleep last night, so I thought I’d come here instead.” While I place the bag on the counter I looked around. “Any news from them,” I asked. She just shook her head as she stirred in the pot. All in all it seemed hopeless, one day we were happy, then a fight when night fell, next day the studio was destroyed and now this… “Sorry I’m late,” Lorelei burst in right on time. “Nah, we’re just early, any news?” That question had to be repeated. “Yeah I got one thing – looks like mommy dearest had the two on house arrest.” We spent the whole morning having Lorelei explain what was up and plotting how to get them out over breakfast. It may sound wrong but it really wasn’t – to me or to them at least. “Ms. Telerman told me that they both have a fever and won’t be attending school…” “…We can use that as an alibi for a ‘sick visit’. To do that, we’ll need someone who Mrs. von Meyer hasn’t met yet.” A mix of thoughtful sounds stirred and both their gazes landed on me. “Perfect.” And so the job of ‘visiting’ them and giving them the instructions for the break out goes to me – woohp-de-do. Once I was all geared up; fake homework and hidden walkie-talkies, I rang the doorbell and waited. Then a set of ‘calm’ footsteps echoed inside and the door open, revealing a pleasant old man – a butler? “Ano…” I started, not good – I sounded like a nervous Girl Scout selling cookies. “Sorry to intrude, I’m Miyazama Katrina from Ms. Telerman’s class, is Alice and Greg home?” “The young master’s at the dentist and the young miss is taking a rest,” – great, looks like he’s going to reject me…”HIbari-san, who’s at the door?” A woman called out in an elegant European accent. “One of young miss’ classmates, madam,” he answered back at the woman, now glancing over his shoulder to take a view of my face. “It’s alright, let her in.” As I took a step in, it felt like I entered the lair of the beast; it had a scary feeling to it and I didn’t like it by a bit. “‘Miyazama’ is it?” She amusedly pronounced my surname, “The Corporation that makes the impossible – possible.” Once again she whispered to herself, “Well then, please escort her to Alice’s room.” Phase 1 complete, hopefully the rest would be a breeze. After a flight of steps we reached the far end of the hallway. He then left me after knocking a few on the door. “Go away!” someone shouted from the other side. “Alice, it’s me.” ‘It’s me’, oh how I hated using that line – but here I am mouthing it out. Then, like a voice-password-enabled lock, the door opened and Alice took me in. Let’s see…messy hair, jacket, sweatpants and some left over food lying around; more proof that something was definitely up. “Here’s yesterday’s homework.” I said making sure that my voice reached at least the hallway. Alice cocked an eyebrow and smiled – she knew ‘we’ were up to something. “Oh how thoughtful, thank you,” She played along. We then proceeded to a nearby table then she wrote what she really meant. ‘Alright, what’s the plan?’ “Nah, ‘twas nothing; by the way, interschool exam’s coming up.” Okay, that wasn’t a cover-up, it was true but it was still school related. ‘I met Lorelei yesterday – and we used Yuki’s old house for a temporary studio.’ I scribbled and passed to her. “Oh, about that – I don’t think I’ll make it to the exams.” Sounded like a lie; a forced lie – best I’d give her a questioning look. ‘Mom won’t let me but I won’t let her keep me here either. I already drew a dress for the exams. Give it to Lorelei; she’ll lead you for now.’ “Oh, why not? Well I guess you need some rest.” I can’t let the fake conversation die down, now can I? “So, what are you doing for the exams?” She continued, “I don’t know – if they have exams for FBI agents or something – that’d be cool.” We passed notes right one after the other: concerning the details of the exam, the dress and the current situation. I also gave her the address and map in case she’s lucky enough to ‘take a hike’ if ever. And the mission was over – hopefully the fake conversation was enough to help me get out of the house alive. That afternoon I gave Lorelei the sketches and she marched out to go canvassing the fabric stores. Yuki and I took a look at the measurements, and then we realized we didn’t have a mannequin. And that’s where Lorelei the doll came in. That same afternoon Lorelei (the living breathing human person) and I got back, me carrying the fifty-pound wooden doll and her carrying rolls of fabric. We yet have to know whose measurements we’ll use –Yuki faints frequently and Lorelei may not be well enough either to walk the ramp, so it all ended with me as the ramp model. Luckily enough, Lorelei the doll almost have the same measurements as me.

While were busy with the measurements, fabric and everything else sewing related, Yuki’s laptop finally made its hopeful signal – Greg was online.

Greg0rScizorHanDs: do any of you guys have a car? We’ll be sneaking out tonight by 1am.
Oh hi~!
I'm Eliot Nikk, call me Ellie for short, Zen's superfabulous best friend. And I'll be taking over the corner for today.
On behalf of my bestie, I appologize for the longest update delay for like ever!
So chea, please understand. Zen's working really hard right and all, it's a miracle to say the least.

We're going to have like super FAB~ Character Interviews on the next episode's corner.
