... Meanwhile ...

As Clift was walking he saw someone familiar standing by the door of his cabin. Clift's face suddenly brightened up and he rushed to greet his only and beloved sister.

He hugged Vivienne very tightly then held her away and took a look at her.

She was as beautiful as ever. He, of course, still preferred her natural look. Her natural light brown hair was very close shade to his own hair colour, but he knew that working on the stage sometimes required actors to look, well a bit more artificial.

Her red bob got her all the good roles.

"Clift, my married brother!" Vivienne giggled as she said. "You! Married! I still can't bring myself to truly believe it!."

"I explained the arrangement to you Viv. It's a paper marriage."

"Still, how she got you to commit to even that is beyond me! Quite the convincer Miss Parr must be! Wait shouldn't she be Mrs. Garrett now?"

"No in fact," Clift shrugged. "She -not surprisingly I may add- opted to keep her maiden name as is."

"How very unusual... well won't you comment on my dress? You always loved the many shades of green."

"...And lime green my... Viv you just look delicious!" Clift bowed. "May have the pleasure of escorting you to the Masked Ball?"

"You may indeed..." Vivienne locked her arm in his. "What about Miss Parr?"

"She's probably already there, she always keep going on about how tardiness in the height of rudeness bla bla bla..."

Vivienne giggled merrily. "Clift, you devil!"

She slapped him on the arm lightly as they made their way into the Ball Room.

When Clift walked in with his sister Vivienne, he saw Mak, Violet, Ace & Scarlett all sitting on a table towards the centre of the Ball Room.

He walked up to them and further introductions were made.

The music started playing and it was very lively.

Clift immediately approached Scarlett Masters and asked her for a dance. Ace asked Mak to dance and the two couples went to the dance floor leaving Vivienne along with Violet Parr.

Vivienne spoke. "What a lovely evening Violet..."

Violet smiled politely. "It is indeed. Beautiful dress you are wearing, Miss Garrett."

"Thank you." Vivienne loved both Makensie Brewer and Violet Parr dearly as well as Ace Masters because of the positive influence she believed the three were having on her brother Clift.

She looked at Mak. "Miss Brewer is starting to show a bit. It is very exciting I must admit... getting two nephews or nieces at once. Clift is very lucky... once the children are born I am sure he will know what a blessing they are from God."

Violet smiled but did not comment.

She must be having second thoughts, Vivienne concluded. The whole pregnancy/fake marriage thing maybe scaring her now. She turned to look at Makensie Brewer and decided that Mak was handling her pregnancy much better than Violet was coming to terms with hers.

Meanwhile Clift was dancing with Scarlett Masters.

"What beautiful eyes you have Scarlett." He smiled looking into her eyes.

"Now, now, calm down Mr. Garrett," Scarlett said mockingly. "My brother warned me about you and your charm."

She giggled cheerfully as he twirled her and said. "Maybe you shouldn't believe all you hear." He smiled.

"Well, maybe that is true, but I shall believe what I see." She spoke nodding towards Violet and Makensie. "Two pregnancies should be more than enough to ward any woman away from you."

Scarlett continued to giggle as she mocked Clift.

Clift suddenly saw, to his surprise, Joey Bane walking up to Violet Parr.

The two exchanged a few words and then he moved.

Joey was not wearing his mask but he had recognised Violet in her full purple outfit... then again it was hard for anyone not to.

Since marrying her Clift had a chance to have a look at her wardrobe. He had to look hard to find article of clothing that was not a shade of purple!


Jan-18-2009 22:01

Ace danced slowly with Mak. He took the lead. He couldn't help himself; he had to watch Clift.

He trusted Scarlett. Really. But... well... there are at least two women in this room expecting, and both are expecting a baby of Clift's. Ace doesn't want to be an uncle yet!

"Ace, something on your mind?"
"I'm watching Clift. He's dancing with my sister." Ace stated bluntly.
"Uh oh! Now they're leaving! Oh my! They must be going to his cabin!" Mak joked.
"Ha ha, very funny." Ace mocked.
"Don't be so worried! Clift is a married man!"
"That's what worries me."
"Never mind. Oh look!" Ace exclaimed.
"What? I can't see behind me!" Mak laughed.
"That creepy guy Bane is dancing too. With Vivienne Garrett!"
"Oooh... how Clift's blood must be boiling right now!"
"He doesn't see yet. All he can keep his eyes on is my sister."
"Oh, Ace, stop." Mak playfully slapped his arm.
"Stop what? This could be serious!"
"Ace, Scarlett is smart enough to realize not to go with Clift. Paper marriage or not!"
"Okay, okay. But I'm still nervous!"

The song ended. As couples broke, Ace took this as a chance to cut in with his sister. Clift noticed Bane and Viv and went to break that up. And Mak noticed Violet sitting there alone, and went over to talk.


Jan-18-2009 22:12

Just before Clift reached his sister, someone else reached his sister.

"Bulldog!" Patricia Crab shouted out. She was decked out in a flowing blue gown that was obviously too small. "How dare you dance with this cheap floozy?"
"Cheap floozy?" Clift yelled, "That's my sister you're talking about, lady!"
"Cherry, I'm only mingling." Bane stuttered.
"Mingling my foot!"
"You're fat foot." Clift stated under his breath.
"I heard that, young man." Patricia looked down at Clift.
"You were supposed to, 'cherry'."
"Now, hold on here!" Vivienne spoke up, "I am a big girl and I will dance with whom I please!"
"Not as big as cherry." Clift said, again under his breath.
"You want your face shoved down your throat, Clift?" Bane stepped in his face, "I can do it for ya."

Meanwhile, every eye in the place was turned towards the loud commotion in the middle. Violet slowly sank in her chair, thanking God that no one yet knew of the marriage. She hoped, anyway.

"I'd like to see you try!" Clift shot back. All four were oblivious to the fact that even the waitstaff watching.
"I'll try, alright." Bane shot.
"Baney! Stop it this instant!" Patricia yelled.
"Clift, get your scrawny rear over here!" Viv told her brother. As the men consented, the women started cackling at it. They got in each others face until Violet finally decided to end it. When she pulled Patricia crab away, Scarlett sidestepped Vivienne.
By this time, the men were back at it, Ace pulled Clift aside and Mak shooed away Bane. T'was quite a scene!


Jan-18-2009 22:14

Finally, Ace ended up chattering with Scarlett like he intended. Clift was lectured by Vivienne, and Bane was getting an earful from Patricia Crab.

But, Makensie and Violet continued their private, and apparently interesting, conversation, and the ball continued.

Makensie finished with...." I just wanted you to know all of this Violet. Take this Black Journal , read it, and decipher what the initials in there stand for"

Violet just nods, and noticed Makensie seemed rushed, as if she was saying goodbye.

Makensie squeezed Violet's hand, and says, "You take care of and Clift, and the baby" Violet said, "Mak, it sounds like you are saying goodbye"

As Makenis started to respond, a gentleman approached Makensie.

"Excuse me, ma'am. At our next stop, your ride will be waiting for you there. I just wanted you to know", the gentleman said.

She nods, then looks at Violet, who was looking at her.

"Where are you going, Mak?", Violet questioned with concern. "You can't leave. You have a baby...who will watch over you? Clift will be upset....I will be, for that matter"

Makensie smiles, and said, "Violet, I thank you for being a dear friend to me.....I will miss you both. As for Ace, he doesnt deserve to be apart of this the choices Ive made for myself. I've decided to leave, and have this baby on my own. You, ofcourse, can stop by my apartment anytime, as well as Clift to check in...and I will be sure to let you know what I have...a boy or a girl, but something tells me, it will be a boy" She smiles, and finally is comfortable being pregnant and knowing there is a little life growing inside her.

"There is too much going on , and I just feel I need to be at peace right now, under my current conditions", Makensie said.

Violet hugged her, and said, "I do understand, my friend. You take care of yourself, and Clift and I will be in touch"

Makensie didnt feel like much in the party mood anymore, after telling her secret of her plans.

She stands up, and walks to Clift.

When he saw her come up to him, he stepped away from Ace, and walked to her, as he could see she had something to say.

She gave him a hug, and said softly, "Thank you Clift for always being there, and through all this craziness, you have proven to be an upstanding man, and someone that I can trust"

He started to pull her back in question to what was going on, but she cut him off, saying, "You have an open invite to my apartment in and Violet are welcome anytime. PLease go talk to Violet, she can fill you in....and she has some other valuable information to this situation going on with JOey Bane, and the rest. You will always be loved by me Clift....and you will always be considered a dear friend to me. I want you to be apart of our childs and Violet both. I will let you know as soon as I have him or her"

She stepped back, looked at ACe, but he was caught up in everyone else, so she thought it best to just let him be.

She walked off to her cabin, to await the next stop, so she could go and have a peaceful life, until her child was born.

Clift stood there watching her, in total shock, and also, felt a tug in his heart. He looks over to Violet, as she was watching, and he walked to her immediatly wanting to know what was going on.

Meanwhile, Makensie returned to her cabin, shut the door, locked it....and looked forward to when this ship docked.

She changed into her bed clothes, and immediately fell into a deep sleep, feeling very comfortable with her decision she's made.

Sometime after the beautiful Miss Makensie Brewer left the Ball Room, the lights suddenly went out.

There was silence for a few moments and then someone yelled reassuringly: “No reason to worry Ladies and Gentlemen... This must be just an electrical fault in the power circuit; we shall have it fixed instantly.”

Violet tightened her violet shawl around her shoulders, and her left hand went instinctively to her stomach: She knew that so much can happen in an instant.

She rose from her chair and started making her to the left wing exit.

As she stumbled across people in the dark, she bumped into someone... a woman.

Violet held her breath and readied herself for a confrontation, but to her delight she heard Vivienne Garrett's cheerful, giggly voice. "Scarlett is that you? You're too tall to be you!"

Miss Parr gently rested her hand on Vivienne's own. "It's Violet Parr. I was just on my way out Miss Garrett. It feels unsafe to be in this dark room no matter the number of people around us and the familiarity of the surroundings."

Vivienne Garrett laughed. "You detectives always take life too seriously. You should consider playing on the stage, Violet."

"I do not believe acting was ever my calling." Violet spoke, somewhat unconvinced by her own statement.

"Well... I'm going back to our table Violet. I need to find Clift and Scarlett before leaving this lively party."

"I shall see you in the morning." Violet Parr released Vivienne and made her way quickly to the left wing exit of the Ball Room.

Once she was out she made her way into the dining area and kitchen before finding her way back to the deck.

Miss Vivienne Garrett went back to the table.

"Clift? Are you still after my friend?" she mused. "Scarlett? Are you still trying to sweet-talk my brother?"

When she received no answer she sat quitely on one of the chairs waiting for the whole matter to be resolved.

On the chair immediately next to hers, she found a lush purse that seemed purple in the flickery light of the table's candles.

"Violet must have left her purse on the chair." Vivienne Garrett took the purse from the chair next to hers with the intention of returning it to Violet later.

Suddenly, a gunshot was heard... Vivienne heard the noise coming so closely from behind her and felt something cutting the air next to her.

Before she could react another gunshot was fired... and this time Vivienne fainted instantly as the bullet grazed her bare left arm.
