In front of the ship (30 Minutes until we Set Sail)
The Grand Emerald is waiting in the port of Windmill Isle. The white gleaming cruise ship is about 3x larger than a normal cruise ship. Jam packed full of entertainment and all sorts of ways to amuse yourself. An orange hedgecat in a black captain uniform stood in front of the entrance to the ship, waiting for the first of the many vacationers to arrive for the cruise of their life.
A light blue fox looks across to find a boat. Slowly, he walks to it, greeting the hedgecat in a mildly quiet voice.
The hedgecat waved at the light blue fox and greeted him warmly. "Welcome to The Grand Emerald! Are you here for the cruise?"
Not so far back, another light blue, but this time, it a female arctic fox, was finding the entrance of the cruise. She stopped just to see the hedgecat and the light blue fox. 'I think this is the entrance,' she thought.
The orange hedgecat looked at the other guest and smiled. "Are you also here for the cruise?"
"Oh, yes I am sir," the light blue arctic fox beamed. "Should I hand you my tickets?"
The light blue male fox saw the arctic fox, and slowly, walked away, shyly. He still wanted to go on the cruise, but he was a bit too shy because an arctic fox was in his way.
"Huh?" then she just realized that she was blocking his way, and turned to him, apologizing for blocking his way.
"It's okay, I get shy around girls," The male fox said.
"Yes please," The hedgecat said whilst holding out his hands.
Suddenly, the male light blue fox realized. "Tickets!" he exclaimed. He ran quickly to his house to get tickets, and a bag with little toys and items in it and back.
She handed the ticket to the hedgecat, and gave a cheerful greeting. Then afterwards, she left for the entrance of the ship.
The male light blue fox gave the tickets to the hedgecat, and walked to the ship. "I'm usually quiet most of the time," he said.
"Woooow sis! Look at the size of this boat~!" A female voice called out as 4 girls stood together, looking over the ship in all its splendor. All dressed in rather flattering Summer attire, the pink haired wolf with them smiled a bit as she removed her designer sunglasses and looked at the sight before her.
"I'm gonna enjoy this to the best of my ability." She grinned softly, while the feline with them touched behind her ear, which earned a quick glance from the she wolf, "You OK C-Cat?"
"Mm?" The cat looked over and nodded, "Yeah, just double checking to make sure my patch is still there...I'm not gonna let sea sickness ruin my vacation like the first time around..." She spoke.
Inside, the female arctic fox was just strolling around the ship, taking pictures of the view. "Wow!!" she gasped in awe at the sight.
The male fox walked into the ship and, quite shy, greeted the 4 girls in his usual mildly quiet voice. "Hi, girls," he said. "I'm Fluffy." He reached into his little bag, and showed the girls his Pikachu plush.
"Mm?" The 4 rather attractive girls glanced over as the chipmunk seemed to stifle a quick giggle to herself while the chipmunk smirked and raised an eyebrow.
"Um, hi?" The chipmunk brushed her blue hair out of her eyes as her adoptive sister, the bat, looked at her phone.
"Sorry, stranger..." Their leader spoke, "We need to get to our rooms and see if the bags are there yet." The she wolf spoke. The others seemed to nod in agreement, before they began to walk towards the elevator.
"Nice plush by the by." The cat spoke, saying this in a cute voice but not in a mocking or mean tone. The group then began to walk for the elevators as the chipmunk and bat continued to giggle with one another.
The blue arctic fox gazed at the view, as she took more pictures. Then, when she turned back to take a picture of the boat, she jumped. "Woah," the female arctic fox mumbled, while regaining her balance.
The Captain looked around at the various vacationers and beamed. This is gonna be one interesting cruise! We have regulars, a few celebrities and more or probably on their way. This is gonna put this cruise on everybody's list of attractions. I just hope nothing goes wrong, he thought to himself.
"Is everything ok Captain?" A voice said next to him
The hedgecat looked to his side and stared at the grey hawk next to him. The hawk had sparkly aqua eyes and wore a black suit, typical bouncer attire. "It's ok Nate, you don't have to be so formal. You can call me Matt, just not in front of others."
"Sorry," Nate replied whilst scratching the back of his neck. "Force of habit"
"Don't worry. I trust everything is running smoothly?" Captain Matt asked.
"As long as nobody tries to go to the engine room and tamper with our energy source, we should be ok," Nate replied.
"Wonderful," Captain Matt answered.
The clique of girls all hopped into an elevator, before they hit a button and slowly began to make their way towards one of the main decks. As they exited they chatted and made their way down the hall, where some of the more expensive and luxurious suites were located.
Meanwhile, Fluffy walks to his room, which was right next to one of the girls' rooms. He lay down on his bed and drew what he saw in his room. A few minutes later, someone else comes into his room for a visit.
Kaiira The Arctic Fox was just strolling around the ship, as she wanted to explore and take pictures of these wonderful views. But, first.. She had to locate where her room was, so she knocked on one of the rooms.
Fluffy opened the door. "Oh, Hi." He said. "This is my room, sorry. Oh wait... did you come by for a visit?"
"Oh... I guess you could say so," Kaiira sweat-dropped.
The clique walked past the fox, ignoring her as they gossiped about day to day things. The chipmunk named Diamond laughed.
"And then, he tried to ask me out after making a total fool of himself! I couldn't help but laugh at how pathetic he looked!" She giggled softly with the bat, before Annabelle held up a card and Diamond held up a card as well.
"We're over here sis." Diamond grinned, their rooms just across from each other. Diamond and the bat in one room, while Annabelle and Christian were in the other.
"Oooh, this is absolutely perfect! Look at this view!" Diamond grinned as their doors shut quietly behind them.
Meanwhile, a 2017 Bentley Continental Coupe appraoched the ship at a moderate pace. The faint sound of music seeped through the windows. The car eventually reached the ship and stopped in front of Captain Matt and Nate.
All four doors opened at the same time, causing he sound of the music to raise abruptly. An orange racoon, a green falcon, a large rat and yellow hedgehog stepped out of the car and looked at the ship.
"This ship is amazing," The falcon exclaimed letting loose a whistle.
"You're telling me July," The rat replied. "It's a nice change of vacation instead of flying everywhere."
"You're telling me Biggie," The raccoon said. "This is a well deserved brake. Going on a world tour to perform all of the time needs a brake once in a while."
Captain Matt looked at the trio and glanced quickly at the yellow hedgehog who was unpacking their stuff. "Welcome to the Grand Emerald!" he announced with outspread arms. "You guys look familiar..."
The raccoon grinned. "We've just come off of our tour, maybe you recognize us from our MET Awards performance?"
Right after the raccoon said that, something was speeding through to the cruise, then they all realized it was a hedgehog, eventually the hedgehog stopped right in between the group and Matt.
"Heya, I'm sorry I was late, I had trouble finding my stuff, heh. ANYWAYS. I'm Scotch, but you can call me Adam too, heh. Its good to be in this place again, anyways I hope I have a fun time on this cruise".
He handed his ticket to Matt and then sped with a WOOSH onto the ship with his bags somehow still remaining in his hands.
Captain Matt blinked rapidly for a second, flustered at what had just occured. "That's Captain Matt to you..." he whispered under his breath.
Nate, who was more or less unfazed from the quick intro and outro of Scotch, clicked his fingers. "Wait a minute. You're Young Ringtail, July Jonas and B.I.G Cheese arent you?" he asked
"Yeap," the orange raccoon replied. "But you can just call me Cassidy."
"I'm fine with July," the falcon responded.
"Just call me Biggie," the rat said.
Meanwhile, two workers delivered some numerous amounts of luggage to the two rooms belonging to the clique of 4 girls. A few moments passed until they opened their doors to see their rather impressive number of bags.
"Finally~! I was wondering if I had to wait a whole century or something." Diamond huffed, and pointed inside of the cabin, "Bring them both into the bedrooms pleaaase~?" She instructed to the workers. Annabelle simply gestured inside of the suite as the workers moved to bring them in and set them down.
"Is there anything you young ladies need?" The man spoke to Annabelle and Christian, staring in awe at the two well known young celebrities.
"No sir, that'll be all. Is lunch being served by now?" Christian asked, and the man nodded, before she licked her lips, "Sweet." She grinned and they dismissed them. The girls went about unpacking and hanging up their many clothes, and setting out their scandelous and/or fabulous bathing suits before all meeting up inside of Annabelle and Christian's suite to chat and plan any activities.
Meanwhile, a wild Pikachu, for some reason, was running down the halls.
"Huh?" Tom said as he was walking down the halls. "Whoah! A wild Pikachu!" He was about to catch it but a sign said: No catching wild Pokemon. Tom was angry and disappointed and walked away.
The Wild Pikachu ran across the halls, bumping into Diamond.
"Well guys. Welcome to The Grand Emerald then!" Captain Matt exclaimed. "We hope you enjoy your stay."
"We will," Cassidy replied as he and the other two helped the yellow hedgehog carry the trio's luggage onto the ship.
Inside the hall the Pikachu was in, Scotch was skating at 15 mph before eventually stopping beside the Pikachu, then he handed it a piece of an apple, then stood back up, then sped to his room.
Right after that, he wooshed out of his door with a purple hawaiian shirt and blue and green trunks on and red shades, then he sped down the hall and eventually disappeared at the end.
"Thanks for telling me!!" Kaiira shouted good bye to Fluffy, as she raced down the hallways towards her room. 'C'mon!!' she groaned in her mind.
(( Actually, Diamond was already inside Anna and C Cats room, so she's not really in the hall anymore o3o - Anna ))
"So, what should we do first?" Diamond grinned to Annabelle who tapped her chin and thought.
"Well, we should definitely get something to eat before it gets too crowded down at the buffet. I don't want to be picking up scraps after people. That's super annoying." Annabelle spoke, before Christian nodded.
"Well lets go get some grub then!" Missy piped up, before the girls nodded in agreement and began to get their room keys, before then going into the hall and heading for the elevators. Diamond begun to take selfies with her adoptive sister, as they climbed into the elevator and began to head up towards the main decks.
Meanwhile after Scotch disappeared, he realized the pool was on the main deck and immediately turned around and skated back to an elevator, he got in, pressed the button and started to move his way to the deck. Eventually getting to the pool, Scotch yelled "SPIN-JUMP BALL!!!!!", and splashed into the giant pool with a SPLOOSH, and then jumped onto a donut floaty and began wading above the water lazily.
After a few minutes Scotch felt his stomach growl. "Oof, I better go get me some grub, I could sure use some burrito's right now". Scotch jumped out of the pool, dried off, and started to speedily skate to the buffet.
Cassidy heard a splash from the pool whilst inside the hallway of the Cruise ship. "Well damn! Everybody's getting started and we're not even in our rooms yet."
"Well let's get a move on then bro!" July replied as they walked down to hallway towards their room.
"Can we eat first?" Biggie asked. "We haven't eaten in a while."
"Yeah...I bet we haven't," July replied sarcastically with a grin. He was rewarded with a playful punch from Biggie.
The Wild Pikachu was eating the apple when all of a sudden he saw a hawk and a rat. It quickly ran up to them.
((July is a Falcon btw ~Eezy))
"Hey check that out," July said as he watched the Pikachu approach them.
"What the heck is that?" Biggie asked with a raised brow.
After unpacking her things in her room, Kaiira had just realized that someone was missing. "Oh no!! Where's Blaster?!" she yelled in her mind, before speeding off to find the croconaw.
(BTW, Blaster is Kaiira's croconaw. -Celestia)
Scotch began skating down the hall to change and eventually crashed into July and Biggie. "OUCH, goddamn speed skates..". Scotch looked at them in awe and stumbled back.
"Hey!" July exclaimed as he was pushed
"Watch it!" Biggie exclaimed also.
"Oh my god, July, Biggie, I'm so sorry! I hope I didn't hurt you!, I didn't even see you guys when I was handing my ticket to the Captain. I loved your MET Performance, by the way". Scotch chuckled nervously.
"Um, thanks?" July replied, clearly confused
"Well I'm heading to my room to change, Maybe I'll see you in the buffet, enjoy your stay guys!". Scotch skated off and into his room.
"That was weird...." Biggie said whilst scratching his head.
"Yeah man," July chimed in. "He better watch where he's going next time. He might run into someone less forgiving..."
"How come he didn't acknowledge me?" Cassidy said.
July and Biggie looked at each other for a moment and then burst out into laughter.
"I'm serious man!" Cassidy continued, looking as confused as ever.
"Blaster? Where are you?" Kaiira asked. "I'll never find him..."
The four rather attractive girls had finally made it to the lunch buffet, grabbing plates and getting some rather delicious food for themselves, but not before a hedgehog bumped into one of them. The girl blinked and looked up, blushing a bit as she looked down.
"S-sorry about that...!" She quickly spoke, but Annabelle blinked and waved a hand. "Just watch where you're going next time, OK?" The she wolf responded, but only for the girl to look on, eyes widened as she looked over the clique. "Y...you're...A - Annabelle Rich...!! O....Oh my god..." The girl almost dropped her plate in surprise as Diamond giggled softly before speaking up. "In the flesh." The chipmunk added. The fan scrambled to steel her nerves as Annabelle smiled a bit towards her. "Hey...Why don't you come sit with us or something...?" She spoke in a smooth and soft voice while Diamond grinned and raised an eyebrow while the hedgehog almost shook with excitement. "Y-yeah yeah! I'd love to!" She responded, before the ladies finished grabbing their meals and sat together in a nice little booth next to a window overlooking the port.
The arctic fox was still in the hallways, as she came to find Blaster. 'Where's that croconaw?!' Kaiira panicked inside her head.
The trio from before had finished unpacking and had just entered the buffet hall. July let loose another low whistle as they stared at the buffet. There was all kinds of food from everywhere in the world! As the group went to go and select their food, an announcement filled the air.
"And don't forget about the 'Set Sail Party' happening tonight! Complete with and Open Mic segment and a performance from our very own DJ Wayne!" Captain Matt said over the announcement.
"Also," he continued. "We are setting sail for the sea in 20 minutes. We will be on our way to our first stop, The Ocean Palace Resort near Seaside Hill!"
Scotch blew in like a rocket into the buffet and grabbed a plate, chicken, and a bunch of biscuits and hamburgers so fast people could hardly see him eventually stopping right in front of a table.
"Ah, perfect", he said, before jumping and landing on the seat, then he began eating as he put on headphones and began listening to Life is a Highway, unfortunately for him the table was in sight of Cassidy, July and Biggie.
After the trio had collected their drinks they began to looks for a place to sit. Biggie then noticed Scotch zipping around the place and then sitting down.
"That dude gives me the creeps," Biggie whispered to Cassidy and July.
"Cut him some slack man," July replied. "Besides, he apologised for the bump 'and’ he's a fan."
"We should go and say hi," Cassidy suggested.
"You forreal!?" Biggie retorted.
"If there's one thing I've learnt in life; it's that even though first impressions last, the second impression is always truthful," the raccoon said. He then strolled off towards the hedgehog.
July and Biggie waited about 5 seconds. They then followed Cassidy towards Scotch.
Scotch turned around and jumped, suddenly falling over and out of his seat. "Uh, Um, H-hi, guys.. listen, I'm still very sorry about what happened, and I'm sure we can be.. friends, of some sort".
"It's cool dude," July said as he sat down with Biggie opposite of Scotch. "Just chill out man."
Scotch cleared his throat, "So, you guys just takin' a break to relax?" Scotch perked up and realized Life is a Highway was playing, thus he turned it off in an instant.
Fluffy was in his room, when someone opened the door. He got too shy and quickly hid under the table.
"Oooh, Anna you're totally gonna slay open mic...~!" Diamond grinned as she saw Anna blush before speaking up.
"That would be like cheating I feel like..." The wolf sighed and tapped her chin, "Well...it is open mic. Anyone can sing."
"Even people who physically can't sing." Missy piped up, making her sister giggle with delight while their new friend smiled to them. Finally, Diamond spoke up to address the girl.
"So, you got a name, hun?" The chipmunk chuckled as their guest blushed.
"Y-yeah. Mary. It's so nice to meet you guys...!" She replied, and the girls smiled and nodded.
"Alright, enough chat for now. Lets dig in!" Christian spoke, before the girls agreed whole heartedly and dug into their meal.
"Aahhh. Nothing beats playing club music for drunken 20 somethin's." Wayne sat by his lonesome with an alcoholic beverage of sorts. Working for the cruise liner had its perks. Free food, free drinks, free living arrangements, and seeing the world almost all of the time. He wasn't required to start working until around sunset, so he took it upon himself to relax and unwind to get in a good mood for work. He sat by the pool all by his lonesome, clad in black swimming trunks with a pair of sunglasses on top of his head.
Fluffy came out and realized it was just the wind. He then went to the pool.
"Yeah, we're just here to chillout and relax for a bit," Cassidy answered as he sat down next to Scotch. "What about you bro. What's your agenda?"
"Traveling, I'm pretty famous myself, I'm ScotchShot15, the 5,000,000 subscriber Youtuber." Scotch perked and realized something, then had a sad look for a second..
Scotch took a bite out of his burger and a sip from his Icee and then jolted and looked at them
Meanwhile Outside (15 Minutes till we set sail)
Meanwhile, a small (about the size of three apples stacked on top), white, and colorless fox appeared next to Matt. The Fox had no emotions whatsoever, and stared at him.
"Hello there!" Captain Matt exclaimed in a welcoming manner. "Welcome to the Grand Emerald! Do you have a ticket?"
The fox didn't answer. He pointed to his eyes which meant it needed to be colored so he can see better.
Captain Matt looked at the fox, quite confused at what he was being told. His guard, Nate, on the other hand had an idea.
"I think he's colour blind sir," Nate suggested. He then looked at the fox. "Am I right?"
He nodded his head up and down, since he could not talk. He grabbed a pencil and pointed it to his eyes, meaning he needed them to be colored in.
"What do you wa-?" Captain Matt was about to ask.
Before he could finish his sentence, Nate grabbed the pencil and started colouring in the fox's eyes. He had no idea if this would work, he just did it on impulse.
The white fox could now see. He took a look around the cockpit and hugged the hedgecat. He then pointed to his muzzle, meaning he needed a way to talk.
"Nate, could you-?" Captain Matt requested.
"Already on it," Nate replied as he drew a mouth on the fox also.
"Thank you," the white fox said. "So... Uh... what is this place again?"
Outside of the ship, in the port of Windmill Isle was a young human man holding a bag with a ticket as he walks onto the ship with it, and looks around confusedly.
"Who do I give the ticket to?" Samuel asked no one particular as he waited in the main lobby of the ship, hoping to see someone who can help him.
Kaiira then gave up on searching, and went to to eat, sitting on an empty spot.
Samuel then placed the ticket at some booth thing, and decided to look around the ship. Mainly, he wanted to see this 6 star restaurant and so, he goes and looks for it. However, it seems like he can't find it in this gigantic ship.
"Ok, can't find the restaurant, what about the swimmin--. No! I should see the captain for the ticket thing!" Samuel ran back to the lobby and quickly got his ticket from his booth, and went away to look for the captain.
The light blue arctic fox sat alone, eating her burger, as she caught a glimpse of a blue figue chomping under her table.Seeing this, she looked under the table, and she found the croconaw. "Blaster!!" she gasped as she scooped up the pokemon into her arms.
"Well, my colourless friend, this is is the starting point of a worldwide cruise to various locations," The Captain began. "Some people paid to get on this marvel of a ship, some people entered a competition and won a ticket. Either way, get ready for the time of your life!"
As he finished the statement he looked at his watch. "Darn, we've got about 10 minutes before we set sail. I better go and tell Marine to get ready. Nate? Could you please, accept anybody else who's come here with a ticket for me?"
The grey hawk nodded and the Captian took off towards the control room of the ship. As we walked towards it he noticed a young human boy walking around, clearly lost.
"Excuse me?" The Captain said to Samuel. "Do you need any help?"
The colorless fox ran down the hallway and knocked on a door. Fluffy heard the knock and opened the door. "Hello?" he said. He looked down. "Oh, hi," he said. "Come on in."
The colorless fox walked into the room. "And what might your name be?" Fluffy said. "I don't have one." the colorless fox said. "hmm..." Fluffy thought. He then grabbed a light blue pencil and colored his fur. "There," he said. "Now you're the same color as me! Maybe you should be called Fluffy Jr."
The fox proceeded to hug him. "Thank you so much," he said.
"So are you vlogging the trip?" Cassidy asked Scotch, taking another bite of his food.
Samuel simply stared at the captain as he never seen anything like him. He looks like a cat and a hedgehog in one. Samuel shook off his surprise to greet the captain.
"Yes, hello Captain! I am lost, and I don't know who to give this cruise ticket to? Or do I just give it to you?" Samuel explained.
"Just give it to me good sir," Captain Matt responded, holding his hand out for the kitchen.
"Thank you Captain," he then gave the ticket to the captain, and that's when he asked. "Where do I stay during the trip?"
"Probably", Scotch answered Cassidy, "I'm not sure, I might get too distracted to remember to vlog". Scotch got a text, turned off his phone, and put it in his pocket.
"So, what's your favorite part of the cruise so far?", Scotch asked.
A curvy female figure walked along through the buffet area, hips swaying as the leopard wore a tight crop top,some shorts, and a pair of wedge heels. She seemed busy looking at her phone as she stopped for a moment, and plopped into an empty seat.
"So, is this your first cruise?" Annabelle asked her new friend as Mary nodded with delight.
"Yeah! It was my dad's idea to come...My mom turned it down since she has to always make sure that work comes first. I felt bad, but she didn't seem to bothered by it." The hedgehog responded with a smile.
"Well my friend, you're in for the time of your life!" Diamond proclaimed happily, "We are gonna totally rock this boat~" She smirked.
Scotch looked at Diamond for a second, then to the leopard girl, then banged his head on the table. "God freaking damn it".
"There are various rooms on the upper deck for you to stay in," The Captain replied. He place the ticket in his pocket and then pulled out a piece of paper. "It says that your room is on the second floor of the ship. Go up the back stairs and your room is second on the left."
"Yoooo," July whispered. "Check out the curves on that leopard."
"They're all pretty nice lookin' if you ask me," Biggie replied, also in a whisper
"Yeaaaa...." Cassidy said. He was distracted alright, but not by the girls. "Wassup with you Scotch?"
"Ok got, thanks capt!" Samuel then heads off to the back stairs, and takes the left, and enters the second room. He place his bag the front of the best, and jumps onto with a heavy sigh. "Great, some rest." He proceeds have a nap until the ship sets sail.
"Eh.. Biggie is right, that's the problem, I'm already in love with 2 girls but the one thing is, I can't keep my eyes off of the first hot girl I see, It's total hell..". Scotch blushed for a second, embarrassed by what he just told them.
"I really don't think you should know anymore", Scotch just kept his head facing down on the table.
"Aye man, chill out," Cassidy replied. "I'll give you some advi-"
"Really bro?" July interrupted. Cassidy gave the falcon a confused look and July continued. "No offense, but due to your....circumstance.....you're probably the last one who should be giving advice."
"At least I tried," Cassidy announced, sitting back in his chair. "And i'm now single because of it."
July looked at Scotch. "Now bro, is it love you're feeling or is it lust? There's a difference bro."
"It's definitely love, at least for the 2 girls I love, but it's all a mess, I don't prefer to talk about it, also July, I agree, Ringtail shouldn't give advice like that".
"Anyways, what do you all plan to do after you finish eating? I plan on going back to the pool, then going back to my room, then go chat with a few people if i meet anyone".
"If it's love, then you gotta learn to control yourself....or just pick one," July replied.
"July's right, it's not that hard." Cassidy chimed in.
"No offence bro," Biggie said. "But you haven't dated in a while bro. You're gonna be rusty as heck."
That prompted a chuckle from July and Biggie.
"By the way Scotch, we're probably gonna hit the outdoor pool too," July said, still laughing.
Their advice prompted a thumbs-up from Scotch, "Thanks for talkin' about this, oh hey, maybe we can gather to watch a scary movie some time to see who isn't a total chicken", He randomly panned toward Cassidy then laughed, "Just joking".
Scotch gave a small salute to the three new celebrity friends of his, "See ya around guys, I'll be outside in less than an hour". Scotch zoomed away and somehow his plate had gone missing too without him even touching it.
"Diamond...I don't know about you but..." Christian whispered, "Boys just can't keep their eyes off you~!" The chipmunk smirked as she brushed some of her light blue hair out of her eyes.
"It's only natural that they stare." She replied, and the girls began to finish up their meals. The leopard stood from her seat as she began to walk off towards the pool, with some strange looking snake like jewelry over her arms...
Scotch zoomed back in. "I forgot something", Scotch wrote down his phone number and gave it to Cassidy, Biggie, and July. "There, now we can keep in touch, see ya!", Scotch skated off.
"Daym, that dude is fast," Biggie stated, finishing off his food.
"You're telling me," July replied. "Oh well, we gotta get our butts in gear and head to the pool."
"Why's that?" Cassidy asked. He then smacked his forehead. "Oh yeah, women..."
"Not just women bro," July replied. "I need a good sunbathe too."
Samuel started to wake up after his nap, and he got off his bed to stretch.
"I'm surprised the ship hasn't set sail yet." Samuel told himself before he set his eyes on the uniquely defined key on the counter at the wall, in front of his bed. He walked to it and pick it up. "My father want this key to be safe, but from what?" He simply put the key back into his pocket, and he left his room, hoping to find that restaurant.
Scotch skated after the 3, "GUYS! WAIT UP!", he skated to them and began skating beside them, "Good thing i caught up in time".
Samuel gave up on looking for the restaurant and simply walked outside and leaned on the railing. Looking over the ocean while the port was at the other side.
"It will happen King Nigel. This is only the beginning for the Multiverse." Samuel whispered, and took out the odd key he always had. "Soon, not only this Reality, but the entire Multiverse will have to join together to stop the coming threat. Even you can't ignore this, Aelos."
Meanwhile Outside of the Cruise Ship (3 Minutes till we Set Sail)
A purple Porsche rolls up towards the ship, inside the Porsche was a beautiful and curvaceous brown fox with purple eye shadow and a sly smile and a typical summer style outfit. She hopped out of the Porsche and waved back at it as the care reversed and sped off, leaving on her and her luggage. She picked them all up and carried them effortlessly towards the ship.
"Hello there miss...." Nate greeted as she handed him a ticket.
"Persia," she replied. "Persia Minami."
"Well you made it just in time Persia," Nate said. "You're one of the last people to get on this ship at this location."
"That's fine," Persia responded as she grabbed her luggage and climbed onto the ship.
"Welp, I'll meet you guys at the pool, see you in a few". Scotch zoomed off towards the pool.
"Alrighty, cya there," July replied as the trio headed towards their room to change.
Meanwhile, Annabelle and her friends seemed to be busy in their rooms changing to get into swim gear. Annabelle looked at her numerous swimsuits while she seemed to be deciding which to wear. Her roomie Christian only sat and stared out of the large bedroom window.
"C Cat...? You OK?" The she wolf asked and the feline nodded.
"...About him...?" Anna asked, and the other girl huffed as she stood up.
"I don't need to think about that cheating bastard. I'm done with him and he knows that I'd be stupid for forgiving him after he slept with that skank." The cat hissed a bit, sounding deeply hurt before she picked up her swimsuit of choice and went into the bathroom to change in private. Annabelle sighed heavily, before she began to change as well.
Samuel was at the restaurant he finally found having one of his favorite meals. Chicken. He was eating the wing before devouring the other portions. And as soon he was done, he left to go outside to the large swimming pool.
"Damn. The captain wasn't joking on the size! It's massive!" Samuel was simply observing the large swimming until a odd sense of danger fills his sensors, and he spun around. Only to see nothing. "For some reason, I have a bad feeling." He walks forward to go back inside, only to get kicked in the stomach, and into the pool itself.
"And you were the one that stopped Thanatos from destroying the Acorn Kingdom? Pitiful" A black anthropomorphic cat steps outside while Samuel got out.
"How did you got on board?!" He demanded, and she holds the ticket. "Oh, make sense." Samuel simply said.
"Samuel Hayden, when this ship sails, that is when we will fight. But for now, I want to enjoy while it lasts." She smirks and walks away, back inside the ship.
"It must of bee--" Samuel then fell face first onto the ground. Surprised, Samuel used his Archive to check his body. It seems she somehow hit a pressure point, making immobilize from the waist down. "Crap, she know that!" Samuel lies on the ground.
Kaiira saw him on the ground and help him up, asking, "Are you okay sir?"
"N-not really, I it seems I am somewhat paralyzed from the waist ground, and why would you help a human?" Samuel asks.
Kaiira smiled, replying with a, "Because I just want to be kind to everyone, well... Not really on my enemies though..."
Scotch began running back and forth around the ship with WOOSHes, trying to keep his energy in tact. He stopped and cannon balled into the pool, waiting for his friends, he just floated around aimlessly on the floaty.
"I see the crazy antics have already begun," July announced as he stepped onto the outside pool, staring at Scotch. Cassidy and Biggie were also behind him
"I say we get this outdoor fun started," Biggie said.
As if on que, a group of five, which consisted of three humans and two mobians also walked out onto the outdoor swimming pool. The group was carrying various instruments and one of them even a had a drum kit. The group immediately set up and, within minutes, the live band started playing dramatic music.
Meanwhile, in the control room, the captain of our ship looked at his watch and gave the helmsman a nod before talking on the loud speaker.
"Ladies and Gentlemen! Hang onto something or take a seat as we get this Cruise underway!" Captain Matt announced with glee.
"Alrighty there mate!" The helmsman replied in her slightly high pitched voice.
The large marvel of a ship steadily pulled out of the port whilst honking it's large horn, signaling it's departure from Windmill Isle.
"Next stop! The Ocean Palace Resort!" The helmsman said over the announcement speakers.
"Nice job Marine!” Matt complimented.
The orange raccoon looked back at the Captain and did a salute. "Expect nothing less from a true voyager of the seas!"
Samuel was on one of the chairs at the pool, and he looks to the side to see the ship moving.
"The ship is moving and that cat-girl got the skills of a absolute mastery over the martial arts." He looks over at the pool to see some mobians swimming and the band group. "At least they don't have to feel this." Samuel made a somewhat terrible joke, and laughed a little, but groaned in pain he get slight feeling back from the lower body. "My mobility is off." I sigh as I wait for more feeling to return.
"I'm going to stay by you then," Kaiira smiled, as she sat on another chair. "I have nothing to do anyways... But.... I forgot to introduce myself... My name's Kaiira, Kaiira The Arctic Fox, yours?"
"I am Samuel Hayden. I am a human, of course you know that. But I am also a inventor." He introduced himself.
"Oh!! I see.. That's cool!!" Kaiira grinned, and looked down to see her pokemon wanting to be introduced, so she lifted him up, and introduced him to Samuel. "This is Blaster, my partner, he's a what you call.. Pokemon, and he's a croconaw."
Samuel stares at the pokemon utter disbelief, and he goes to ask her a question. "U-um, where did you get this creature?"
"He had appeared out of a portal, injured and hurt, so I trained him, and so Blaster became fond of me, and we became partners," Kaiira explained. "But I don't have a pokeball..."
"A portal? wait? What did this portal look like?" Samuel asks her.
"Um.. It looked like a vortex shape, and had a crystal blue color, like any other portal," the female arctic fox shrugged, as she casted a healing spell on Samuel.
Scotch looked up and jumped out of the pool and landed in front of the trio. "You finally made it! I'm running around because it helps keep me energized, its a thing I do, anyways, I'll be over there sunbathing if you guys need me for anything".
"I'm joinin' you on that brotha," July replied as he took a seat on one of the various beach chairs.
Scotch walked over got out a sun reflector and layed on one of the beach chairs, sighing and whispering, "Ah.. I can't wait to go back to Seaside..".
((Scotch was talking to Cassidy, July and Biggie :P ~Prince))
(Knew it... I'm wrong... XD Sorry - Celestia)
Samuel was in deep thought after the explanation on the portal's appearance. "As long no black-ish is seen, I guess it's safe."
"Yep," she shrugged.
"I'm gonna get my swim on," Cassidy replied as he climbed up onto the high board. He did a quick jump which turned into a double front flip as he dived into the pool.
Scotch did a fast clap "That was very well done, Cassidy, but I can do better". Scotch got up from the chair, walked over and climbed up the ladder, once he reached the top, he did a spin jump, multiple twists and a double backflip, and crashed into the pool in a spin-jump shape again.
Scotch raised up from the pool and inhaled a deep gust of air, "THAT, is how you do tricks". He looked at the others. "Well? Wanna do it too?".
Cassidy's jaw dropped as the hedgehog landed in the pool. "Well two can play it that game!" he challenged.
Cassidy climbed up onto the high board again and this time took a few more bounces before he flew into the air. This time he did a triple back flip and double twist finish as he dived into the pool.
"Top that!" Cassidy shouted in triumph.
"Uh oh, seems like we've got a dive contest going on!" Captain Matt said over the intercom.
Scotch laughed and climbed up again. "Ok, I will". Scotch jumped 6 times and flew into the air, this time doing 2 front and backflips, multiple spin jump spins, multiple twists and finally did an anime peace sign and landed in the water, then he got up and jumped onto the ground around the pool.
"Heh, try to beat that, that's one of my best trick combinations, I sky dive every month". Scotch sat down to watch Cassidy try to beat his record breaking trick combination.
Samuel watches as the two do their diving contest, before looking at the other side of the pool to the same black cat that attacked him. He simply stare at her, before she walks away back inside. "Must be checking how I was. Worried."
"Oh, you've done it now!" Cassidy replied as he climbed back onto the high board.
"He better not do what I think he's gonna do," July said out loud.
Once Cassidy was on the high board he took a bounce, then another, then one more and then launched into the air. He proceeded to do one backflip......two backflips......three.....four?
Biggie's jaw dropped as Cassidy continued rising in the sky.
Surely some law of physics is being broken here? Biggie thought to himself.
Cassidy reached his eighth backflip. Only then did he reach the climax of his height.
"How high is that? 50ft off of the board?" July suggested as Cassidy finally started to come down.
The orange raccoon did various front flips, somersaults and twists before he finally reached the water. Just before he hit it however, he stopped in midair! The raccoon got to his feet, almost like he was standing on invisible floor. He then took a quick bow and did a quick dab before doing a backflip and finally landing in the pool with a cannonball finish.
"Show off....." Biggie muttered under his breath.
"Not everyone has Vector Powes y'know!" July shouted as Cassidy rose up to the surface.
Scotch looked at Cassidy, then back to Biggie and July, and pointed at him confused, "Damn, you can break physics like a ghost", Scotch jumped out of the pool and landed on the chair and the edge of the reflector, making it fly up and land in his hands. "Eh, I'm not that competitive of diving", Scotch looked at July again and mouthed silently, "What the hell", then shrugged and layed back.
"Don't mind Cass," July said to Scotch. He then looked at Cassidy. "He's just very competitive and a bit of a show off!"
"Sorry," Cassidy said whilst climbing out of the pool. "I sometimes get a little flashy during competition."
Near the Pool (5 mins since The Cruise began)
"Oooh yes! Time for relaxation!" Missy called out as the group of 4, now 5 with the addition of a hedgehog, wondered past the pool. Annabelle huffed.
"So crowded...Know if there's a more quiet pool around?" The wolf spoke, and Mary smiled softly.
"Well, we can always go to another end. It is pretty big." She spoke, and the group nodded with their small bags over their shoulders as they went to a more calm area of the pool, where a large jacuzzi was sitting. They wondered past the same leopard as before, who was now conversing with Wayne, the DJ.
"Aaahh, well, got a few hours before I set up. Why not reap the benifits of working on a cruise ship, Carmen?" Wayne chuckled as the leopard raised an eyebrow and shrugged.
"I suppose all I need are my snakes company to feel relaxed Wayne..." The leopard spoke, "But I suppose you're right. However my live shows start a while before your club opens so I'll have to be ready before you. Lucky dog." She spoke, a soft and alluring spanish accent on her voice. Wayne grinned, "Eeeexactly!"
Annabelle, Christian, Diamond, Missy, and Mary finally sat down and claimed a few seats by the poolside as they seemed to be talking about usual, day to day stuff. Movies, what to do after swimming for a while, and so on.
Scotch whispered to July, "Maybe we could get Cassidy to go talk to the girls over there, I'm sure he would LOVE to get acquainted with them..", he nudged his elbow at July.
July snickered. "You're telling me."
Cassidy looked over at the chuckling duo and smirked. "Maybe I will."
July started laughing a little harder.
Scotch smirked, "Go do it then, I'll even bet $50 that you can't get one of their numbers".
"Well then my good sir. Challenge accepted!" Cassidy replied
"Well? What are you waiting for? Go talk to them!". Scotch got up, pushed Cassidy slightly and sat back down, chuckling along with July.
"Fine then," Cassidy replied as he shook himself off really quick. He then put on his best smile and did his most swaggy walk towards the group of girls.
He looked at Biggie and July and asked, "He won't do it, will he?". He watched Cassidy from the chair.
"One thing you gotta know about Cass," July replied. "He never backs away from a challenge"
"I meant he won't get their number, I have a feeling", Scotch kept on watching.
"Oh, I told him off of course. Why would I date someone like him? He's never even gone on a date! How sad is that?" Diamond giggled with her sister as they splashed around in the water, while the others were sticking their legs in on the edge. Christian nudged Annabelle as they noticed Cassidy wondering over. Of course, they recognized him from a mile away, but were unsure as to why he was coming over...
"Hello there ladies!" Cassidy greeted with a grin. He had no idea what reception he would recieve, however his gut said it wouldn't go too terrible...
Samuel watches has Cassidy greeted the girls. "Does he even know how to greet them? Why did it felt off to me when he said that?"
"I think he's just following the number one rule....Be Yourself." July suggested.
"Maybe so, I think it was weird he said those lines." Samuel told him.
Scotch shrugged, "Being myself around girls is the LAST thing that I should do, I can embarrass myself a lot if I be normal, that's a fact, my prank videos prove it", Scotch laughed, and proceeded to pull out 50 dollars and place it on the arm of the beach chair.
Samuel looked at the 50$ on the arm chair. "Ok, what's the point of THAT?" He asked Scotch.
"I made a wager with Cassidy to see if he can get one of the girls' numbers, and so far, I'm about to lose my $50", Scotch kept on watching Cassidy as he put the money back in his pocket to be safe.
Samuel only sigh in response, before catching a metallic sphere object from nowhere, and he only had a deadpanned expression.
"Dankebot, what do you want?" He asked the sphere thing, and it hovered in front of Samuel.
"A message from Princess Sally Acorn, sir!" The robot said in a cheerful, robotic voice, and goes to play the message.
"Samuel, it's me! Sally! The reconstruction of Calamine is almost done, so you should be able to have your favorite drink when you get back from your cruise!" The message stops there, and the robot poops out of existence, with Samuel looking moderately surprised.
Meanwhile, A short, slumped person with round hands ran towards the ship. He sat at the edge of one side, grabbed his fishing rod, and started fishing.
"Hmph." Annabelle made a small sound with a confident, judgemental smirk spreading across her soft, glossed lips, "Hi. Can we help you...?" The she wolf spoke softly, the others staring while Diamond snickered along with her sister in the pool. Christian seemed to stare with a deadpan look, as if she didn't want to see anyone else for the time being.
Cassidy was slightly caught off guard by Christian's stare. But he sucked it up and spoke anyway. "So how're you ladies enjoying the cruise so far?". He took a seat next to them.
Kaiira was looking at Samuel worriedly. 'So he knows Sally Acorn too?' she wondered. 'But I'm worried about him getting into a fight with someone, and m-my powers.. T-th-they're going to go out of control again if I get angry at the attackers!!' She started sweating at the thought, and tears started clouding her eyes. Blaster saw this, and tried comforting her by nuzzling into her arms, but that... Failed.
Samuel looks at Kaiira with a worried expression. "Hey, you ok?"
"Huh? Oh.. Yeah, of course I am," Kaiira grinned, after wiping her tears away. "I just have power controlling problems, and overheard that you know Sally Acorn right?"
"...We only just pulled off, you know..." Christian raised an eyebrow at him, seemingly irritated for no good reason as she seemed to know well of his intentions. She stood up and wondered back to their chairs before laying out with her earbuds in while listening to music.
"Don't take it personally." Annabelle spoke, "She just went through a bad break up recently. The guy went off to a party and banged some ex-band member skank who was exposed of assaulting her band-mates and plagerizing lyrics from other bands so...it's been a bit hard for her." She huffed and brushed some of her pink hair out of her eyes.
"Hmph. He didn't deserve C Cat ANYway." Diamond scoffed as Missy nodded and dipped her head below the waters surface.
"Actually Kaiira. Sally is my.. step-sister..." Samuel nervously.
"Ohh, is she cruel or anything? Sorry, just curious," Kaiira chuckled, as she unconsciously made her hand into an ice claw, and raised it up slightly.
Samuel looks at her with utter shock, and rather annoyed look. "Sally almost died defending the Acorn Kingdom against the Infinity Organisaiton as I did when I fought the Thanatos. Where did you get such a idiotic idea she was cruel from?" Samuel was rather angry, to say the least, and he ignored the ice claw she made.
"Nah, I was curious and wanted to know if all step-sisters were evil... Just like mine..." Kaiira chuckled sadly. "She tortured me, and as a revenge, I almost killed her in rage, but I left, since I'm more to a threat to the step-family, and now... I don't have any family. All except friends, which are my Freedom Fighter friends back at Nocturne Forest. They're my true family."
"Hey, it's cool." Cassidy replied. "I know how it feels to be hurt by somebody you had feelings for." The raccoon looked down a bit and then shook it off. "But on the brightside, every cloud has a silver lining. He probably wasn't the one..."
The Villager ran back and forth down the halls until he bumped into something.
"Well she sure thought he was..." Missy muttered, but huffed, "Which is why we're totally gonna have her mingle on this trip!"
Diamond giggled, "Yeah~! She even admitted that she'd like to try going both ways. I don't see why not!" She grinned, "C Cat could make some girl the luckiest thing on the planet!"
Scotch saw the Villager run away and he tapped July 3 times, then whispered, "Dude, I think that was the Villager kid from Smashville ((Smashville is in Smash Bros, I call it the home town -Prince)), What is he doing here? HOW is he here? Scotch looked at July, very confused.
"I think so actually," July replied. "What is he doing here?"
"Hey, if she ever needs a date, my friend over there can sing really well," Cassidy replied slyly pointing at July.
July's eyes widened and the falcon took a quick glance at Christan and then quickly picked up a magzine.
Christian seemed to glance over, a sour look on her face before she turned away and seemed to turn her music up a little lounder. Diamond giggles at the cats reaction.
"Yeah, we'll let you know~" The chipmunk smirked.
I look at Kaiira with sympathetic expression. "Forgive me on that. But let's not dwell on the past, and just enjoy this cruise, right?"
"Yep," Kaiira replied.
Samuel gets up, now having mobility. "I'm gonna head back to my room, and sleep. Have a good day Kaiira." Samuel bid farewell as he walks back to his room.
"Okay, you too Samuel," the female arctic fox replied, as she walked back towards her room with Blaster.
The Villager grabbed an axe and started cutting all the plants in the his room. "How bad can I possibly be?" He gleamed. He threw his axe out his room and it hit somebody.
Scotch perked up and dashed away from the pool area in an instant and stopped where the Villager was, and grabbed his hand. "Kid! Stop cutting down the plants, your reputation is bad enough on the internet, but if you actually KILL SOMEONE, then it'll be way worse!". Scotch looked down with a stern expression at the Villager.
"Just try to act normal", Scotch sped away and jumped back onto the chair, going back to sunbathing.
"That's awesome," Cassidy replied. "He's never had a girlfriend before." This triggers a stare from July that was promptly ignored by the raccoon. He then looks at Annabelle. "Were you in that one movie...? You kinda look familiar..."
Scotch looked at July. "Give it to me straight, would I be ABLE to get with that girl, I want an answer dude", Scotch looked at July with a concerned expression that looked like he was mad and annoyed at the same time, but he could tell Scotch was neither of those.
Meanwhile for Kaiira, she was with Blaster, wearing her swimsuit, as she dashed happily to swim. "Yeah!!" she giggled.
"Honestly?" July replied. "There's always a way. Just don't be creepy and be cool."
Scotch simply nodded as if he needed nothing else and simply put his shades down and went back to sunbathing. "Eh, I'll go swimming later, I love water, I just wanna keep sunbathing right now".
Carmen walked past Scotch and July, running her fingers through her short hair as her rather impressive hips swayed whilst she walked on. Christian caught herself staring, but huffed as she shook her head to get back to her own thoughts and continued to listen to her music.
Diamond grinned as she and her sister splashed each other, racing one another from one area to the next and generally just having a great time.
"Anymore of this and I might need to cool off with a swim," July replied whilst twirling via sunglasses in his hand.
"You said it," Biggie replied as he flicked through a magazine.
"Hmmmm....the name actually slipped my mind," Cassidy replied to Annabelle."Though I'm pretty sure it was a musical that broke the box office the week of it's release."
Scotch took off his jacket and layed it on his chair, then Scotch stood up and spin-jumped, landing in the pool 6 feet away, and rising up spitting out water like a fountain, "Ahhh.. nothing beats the water". He dived and began swimming underwater.
"Oh. You're probably talking about that Cinderella remake I did a few years back." Annabelle spoke, smiling a bit, "It had been so long I could hardly remember myself...or was it that other one...Hm, can't remember anymore..." She tapped her chin.
Diamond and Missy sat up on the side of the pool, the chipmunk wringing her hair out a bit as she tied a small scrunchie around it. The two then picked up some sodas they had set up in their cabin before they began to sip from them and chat.
"Are we going to the club tonight or what?" Missy grinned as her sister nodded,
"Of course! Then, tomorrow, we'll head to the spa and be pampered~!" The chipmunk giggled.
They could see air bubbles coming up from the water as they saw a wavy underwater Scotch laying on the floor of the pool with his hands behind his head and his legs crosses upwards, along with an underwater air filter over his mouth (Scotch was literally sleeping underwater ~Prince).
Diamond seemed to roll her eyes a bit, and went back to Missy, "I was thinking we start with massages and work our way to the sauna probably. I'm sure after dancing our feet are gonna be killing us...!" The chipmunk spoke, seeing the bat nod in response.
"I'd love to get my nails done too~" The bat smiled as Mary began to wonder over and sit next to them, sticking her legs in the water, "Hey you~!" Missy greeted as Mary blushed shyly and smiled.
"I guess time goes by when you're making money," Cassidy replied with a chuckle. "So what brings to you an extravagant ship like this Miss.....?" Her name slipped his mind for a moment.
"Annabelle Rich." She responded, surprised that even he didn't know her by name, which she seemed to softly sigh at before turning away a bit and rolling her eyes. So hard to find people who didn't live under a rock. Nevertheless she turned back to him and forced a friendly smile. Had it been the past Annabelle, she would have obviously snapped on him.
"Annabelle Rich," Cassidy repeated to himself, casting his mind back through where he had heard that name before. "Weren't you a model at one point?"
"Yes, and I still am." Annabelle replied, raising an eyebrow a bit. She didn't seem too pleased seeing as she was still in her prime, and did indeed enjoy modeling lingerie and swimsuits whenever someone was looking to find a model. She sighed a bit, slipping her shades on as she lay on her back, arms behind her head while her legs were still soaking over the edge in the pool.
Scotch jumped out of the water and landed in front of July, "Well, I'm going back to my room, I have a bunch of anime to watch, see you guys later, drop by my room if you want, also let me know how Cassidy turns out." Scotch ran down one of the halls and disappeared around a corner.
Cassidy watched as Annabelle sighed and slipped on her shades, a clear sign of uninterest. Maybe he was boring her? Maybe he offended her. Thoughts raced through his mind and he backtracked through the conversation so far.
I guess this is what I get for not keeping up with movies and modelling trends, he thought to himself.
"Uh oh," July whispered to Scotch. "Looks like you might win your bet afterall."
"Uuummm," Cassidy uttered. "Look, I'm sorry if I'm boring you. I guess you can already see that I've 'been living under a rock' when it comes to fashion and movies."
"God, we can't keep them away from us can we...? Where are all the worthy boys...?" The bat whispered before Diamond shrugged.
Annabelle's ears twitched at Cassidy's words, "Mm, a little. But don't worry, there are people out there who don't know what the internet is, or never seen The Lion King. So I'd think there's someone out there who's a little less educated than you." She said in a small, joking manner.
"Well I guess so," Cassidy chuckled. "But, seriously though. Working with music and other activities can really take away your time."
Kaiira jumped into the pool with Blaster, splashing water at the croconaw, who splashed her back. "I love this cruise, although I really know anyone here.... Wish I could be someone's friend here..." the young arctic fox sighed.
"Hm." Annabelle nodded in response to what Cassidy had said, before scratching her ear, "I guess not everyone has the free time they probably deserve..." She gave a soft, relaxed sigh.
Mary continued to dip her feet in the water with Diamond and Missy, while Christian was still lounging in her chair with her earbuds in.
"Which is why I try to spend as much free time as I can living life or making it better for others," Cassidy replied as he looked at the blue sky.
Annabelle nodded, "Hmm. I see." She went silent for a moment before sitting up again, pulling down her shades a bit as her deep, dark sapphire eyes could look at him, "Hey...you goin' to the club tonight?" She didn't really say this in a flirty mannor, however this was Annabelle Rich, and anything she usually did made some people weak in the knees.
Cassidy was slightly caught off guard by the question. "Pretty much," he replied. "Me and the boys will probably perform there too. At least with the Cap's permission." He then looked back at Annabelle. "What about you?
July meanwhile decided that he was tired of reading his magazine. He folded his magazine up and climbed onto the diving board. He whilsted, warning people that he was about to dive into the pool. He did two short jumps and the front flipped into the pool.
July got a text after he left. "Expect me to be at the club tonight, also if you see a charmeleon running down the halls let me know. anyways gtg, this anime isn't gonna ma-" it typed back a little "watch itself, see ya".
Annabelle taps a chin as she seems to think for a moment, "We'll definitely be there. And if they allow me to perform I'll probably take them up on their offer." She nodded.
July swam back up to the surface of the pool and looked around at everyone. Cassidy was doing his thing and Biggie looked asleep so he was pretty much on his own right now.
"They probably wiil," Cassidy replied. "They'd never reject someone as pretty and and popular as yourself."
Scotch broke the laws of physics and slid in front of July without any movement whatsoever. "Heya, I got bored of my anime so I thought I'd come back." Scotch sat down on a beach chair close to the pool. "So, what went on while I was watching anime.. god that's a mouthful."
Annabelle chuckled, raising an eyebrow at the flattery, "Mmm, well, when you put it like that." She nods and begins to stand up, stretching as her fur seems to shine rather brightly in the Summer sun - perhaps even outshining the sun itself.
"Hey Anna! We should totally hit up the casino and case out the place if we get bored later!" Diamond called out to her friend, "Or probably relax in the jacuzzi's in the adults only section~" She winked as Missy grinned.
"Welcome back Scotch!" July replied as he swam to the side of the pool. "What did you watch?"
"This place has a casino?" Cassidy questioned. "That is lit!"
Scotch leaned forward "I was watching season 2 of Attack on Titan, but I got bored after an hour or so, so you seem to be enjoying the pool, ooh, maybe later tonight instead of going to sleep, we could play would you rather, or maybe truth or dare, somehow I still love those games" Scotch laughed and flicked down his shades.
"Well of course. The older guests have to have something to occupy themselves with." Annabelle sighed as she ran her fingers through her hair, before Diamond and Missy wondered back over with Mary on tow.
"I'm ready to get dried off and check this place out~! Scope out the club and stuff and check out the views. You in?" The chipmunk smirked and Annabelle nodded. She turned to Christian.
"C Cat, you in?" Annabelle asked, before seeing the cat shake her head in response which made the wolf shrug. She looked back to the others as they began to gather their things. Annabelle looked to Cassidy, "Well I'll see you around, K~?" She gave a friendly wink as she and the three other girls headed back inside to head to their rooms.
"Yeah, I'll defnitely see you around. Y'know....because we're on the same cruise and stuff..." Cassidy replied
Scotch looked at Cassidy "So? How did it go?".
"Hmph." Christian continued to sit there, laying out on the long chair before looking at her phone and beginning to take a selfie to get her mind off of things.
"I think it went quite well," Cassidy replied looking in the sky.
Christian soon sat up and began to play with her phone before she stood with a small stretch and began to gather her things.
In the Engine Room (45 Minutes since we have set sail)
The engine room was stricty off limits to the vacationers. No matter how rich, no matter how famous. Only official personel could enter at any given moment and it was Nate's job to make sure no one else went down there. It was very quiet down here in front of the door. Luckily none of the guests have walked down towards ther room yet so he hadn't had to explain himself. But it was only a matter of time.
Nate looked up as a blue hedgehog in a cheifs outfit stopped in front of him. Nate wasn't surprised, it only makes sense that the hero of mobius would come down here eventually.
"Hey there Sonic," Nate greeted.
"Hey Nate," Sonic replied whilst looking around. "You're still here?"
"Yeap," the hawk replied.
"Don't you ever get tired? I'd be bored half to death if i just stayed in one spot this long!"
"Ask Knuckles, he's a pioneer in not moving."
"Speaking of Knuckles..." Sonic replied as he pointed towards the door and held out his I.D.
Nate took a quick glance at the card and then stepped aside as Sonic opened the door to go downstairs. Before the hedgehog zoomed down he looked back at Nate.
"Why so serious?" Sonic asked jokingly. He noticed that the hawk hasn't smiled since.
"The fate of the world might just depend on how well I guard this door," Nate replied
"Don't be so over dramatic," Sonic said yelled as he dashed down thet stairs.
Meanwhile on deck by the pool
"Attention!" the captain's voice echoed over the speakers. "The arcade is now open for usage! Other late night entertainement rooms such as the Casino and Club will be open for actual usage later. However, that doesn't mean you cant go in and scope them out before hand!"
*Andie runs over to the arcade , not minding the other things that the captain said* "I will make it first!"
Christian took her time as she made her way back to her room to change back into some normal clothes, or perhaps just rest for a while on the balcony.
Gary flew by the ship, and noticed a robotic hedgehog. It was Metal Sonic! He flew toward Christian and said, "Miss, I don't want to bother you, but it looks like you got company!" Then he left.
Scotch snapped back to reality and put his 20 bucks away, then stretched. "So, you guys wanna go check out the other areas of the ship? I want to go play Sonic's game Sonic CD, since I'm in it, but I can wait, if you guys wanna go somewhere else, I'm down."
Jack grabs a scoop of ice cream and slaps his tusks together. "I'm down as well."
"I'm down 3." Austin replied.
"I'm down 4" said Jack.
"I'm down 5." Austin replied.
"I'm down 6" said Jack.
"I'm down 7." Austin replied.
"I'm down 8" said Jack.
"I'm down 9." Austin replied.

"How about you both be down," Cassidy said in a frustrated tone as he got up from where he sat. "Wanna get out of here guys?"
July climbed out of the fool as Biggie put down his reflector.
"Let's go man," July replied
"Yeah!" Biggie agreed. "Let's do some exploring."
"I'm down!" Jack says, preparing to waddle to wherever the group is heading to.
"I'm in, lets go explore dis place!" Scotch jumped out of what used to be his chair and spin-dashed to the group, stopping right next to them. "So, where we headed?".
"I say we go to the arcade!" Jack replied, clapping his flippers together.
Scotch perked "Hey, do you guys want to see something neat? It's something I don't tell people often.".
Christian seemed to raise an eyebrow at the stranger, before she continued on as if nothing had happened, still stuck in that awful mood of hers.
While they were walking, Scotch got a call. "Talk to me. Sonic? Hey! Yes, I'm on vacation, sorry I couldn't get you a ticket. Oh, you're the cook here? Well I'll drop by later. I met some new friends and I'm gonna show them my secret, oh come on, nobody will replace you, no, yes, okay. Alright blue blur, I'll leave you to whatever you're doing, alright, bye." he hung up.
Meanwhile, No one was in Fluffy, Tom, and Jake's rooms. They must have decided to leave the ship by jumping out the window.
Annabelle was busy lounging in her room whilst scrolling through her cellphone. Christian soon returned and sighed as she flopped onto the bed.
"You sure you're OK?" The wolf asked and Christian huffed.
"I'll be fine..." The cat responded.
Cassidy raised and eyebrow suspiciously. "Alright Scotch," he answered. "Show us what you've got."
Scotch was nearing his room with them. "Sonic is such a tool sometimes." Scotch walked into his room with them and opened a drawer, whipping out a Super Emerald and flashing it in front of them "Ta-dah!".
Soon, Annabelle, Diamond and Missy met up in the hallway, while convincing Christian to join them as they began to walk down the hall to the elevators.
"A Super Emerald?" July questioned. "What's the difference?"
"Super emeralds are supposed to be stronger than your average Chaos Emeralds," Cassidy answered. He then looked at Scotch to see if he was correct.
"Correct Cassidy! After Angel Island came to afloat again after Sonic stopped Robotnik, I nabbed the emeralds to keep them safe, I only have one, and I have a special teleporter to send them places" Scotch pulled out a small glass box with a purple top and bottom and put the emerald in it, sending it warping somewhere.
"I basically guard the Super Emeralds, much like Knuckles does the Master Emerald, pretty cool huh?" Scotch looked at them, asking for their opinion.
The Villager was working on a banner to hold up on his room door, and the banner said "hangout." He put the banner on his room door and waited for someone to come.
Annabelle and her clique walked towards the elevators as they walked into one, and Annabelle hit a button so as to be taken to the floor with the casino.
Soon the four girls got off at the casino and began to look around.
"I am going to absolutely BANK!" Diamond grinned as she and Missy began to look at the games.
"That sounds dope Scotch," Cassidy replied.
"Kinda dangerous too," July chipped in. "Isn't that dangerous?"
"Well, I guess so, I mean Metal Sonic or Robotnik has never come after them, besides, it's basically impossible to get to them without the proper things." Scotch put away the teleporter.
"Anyways, I say we head down to either the casino or the arcade, then we head down to the club, does that sound like a plan to you guys?" Scotch looked around at them, then started laughing. "I forgot to ask you guys, do any of you remember the Station Square crisis with Chaos back in 2003? I was there, I saw the whole thing."
Annabelle and her clique walk past the group of guys while Diamond laughs about something, "I mean really! You should have seen the look on his face. The fact that he honestly thought he could get with a girl like me was almost laughable. I mean really. I'm SO out of his league." She spoke, and her sister grinned.
"For a total nerd, he seemed totally dimwitted when it came to figuring THAT out, huh?" The bat snickered.
Scotch looked at the girls and make a disgust sound of some kind, then slammed his room door after they passed.
The Villager started putting posters about his hangout in each room. people noticed the poster as they walked by.
Scotch cleared his throat and slapped his face in idiotic realizationess, then walked outside with the group of dudes and started walking in the direction of the arcade. "So what will you play first?"
Once the girls finished their walking around the ship, they returned to Annabelle and Christian's room to chill out for a while. Diamond noticed the poster in their room and scoffed a bit as she took it down, folded it up and tossed it into a nearby waste basket. They closed the door behind them and made sure to lock it. Diamond jumped onto the large couch and sunk into the comfy cushions with a relaxed sigh.
"We should totally hit up the spa...I hear that they give incredible massages...~" The chipmunk spoke, as Annabelle nodded in agreement.
Samuel was sitting down at a table near the pool. He had holographic screens in front of him, to which he was interacting with his Holo-Interaction Glove. He was making a photo album of his days in the Acorn Kingdom, and some photos on the cruise.
"I hope I can send this to Sally, I just wished she came but duty calls," he quickly swipe the screen and it vanishes, and took off the glove and simply did nothing, and look ahead before dozing off to sleep.
Suddenly, the area was smoky.... very smoky. All you could see was a flash of a yellow light and grey smoke. When it finally cleared, it turned out a brown Bengal Tiger wearing a yellow t-shirt and black shorts was coming onto the deck along with a green vest-wearing yellow ocelot who seemed plenty infuriated.
"Mac... why must we come here via Extreme Gear? Wouldn't it be simpler to just run on water?"
Mac shrugged. "I wanted it dramatic! What's wrong with that?!"
"You're going to cause commotion!" After hearing this, Mac shrugged once again and left with a golden backpack on his back and a few suitcases in his hands. How he was able to walk with those weighing him down was a mystery to everyone but him and Terra, who simply followed him.
Kaiira was still in her room, quite lonely, as her Croconaw nudged her ankle. He pointed for her to go outside, and after a while of persuading, Kaiira finally agreed. She went outside to take Blaster for a little walk.
Samuel quickly awakened from the smoke in coughing and has the smoke died, he sees the causes.
"Can't they just get on here while we were still docked like a normal person would do?" Samuel quickly rephrased that, "I mean,.. beings? I don't know!" Not tired anymore, Samuel got up, and just wandered around the ship, before he stopped and said. "Wait, who were they?"
Luckily, Terra and Mac were just walking by him. "That was us. Sorry for the smoke, there should've been way more. My apologies, you deserve a better entrance from me than that." He walked by, apparently not caring about what Samuel had to say afterwards.
Terra, however, did. She gave Samuel a heartfelt smile and started twirling her tail. "Sorry for that stoned nuisance. He is such an annoyance, he's hard to deal with."
Beginning to somewhat 'patrol' the decks, the leopard from before seemed to try and kill time by taking a stroll by the pools and where the outdoor lounging areas were located.
"Do not worry, I dealt with more..... deadlier and more annoying people before. I can tolerate, but I do find it rude he just walked away," Samuel looked towards where Mac walked to, then back at Terra, returning a friendly smile. "Oh, by the way, I am Samuel Hayden," he raised his hand towards Terra, offering a handshake.
"Huh?" Kaiira said as she peeked out from the corner, to see a tiger, and his friends, plus Samuel. "Hey Samuel," she let out a tiny greeting. "And hi to you all too!" "Sorry if I ruined anything," she grinned, walking over to them.
"Do not worry Kaiira, you didn't ruin anything," Samuel assured her." Just talking to this Ocelot here," he indicted to Terra. "She and this other dude came with a hover board of sorts on the deck. The smoke jolt made me awake though."
The young arctic fox smiled at Samuel, and two new figures. "My name's Kaiira, and I'm just a young arctic fox that decided to come for a cruise," she said. "And this is my buddy Pokémon, and he's called Blaster The Croconaw."
Terra shook Samuel's hands, and it seems there was a gleam of light in her eyes when Kaiira finished. "My name is..." She bowed. "Terra Fauna of the Flora Cats Tribe-" she clasped her hands together, and light radiated from them. "I am the Guardian of my village, and the protector of wildcat-kind... at least, protector of what I can protect."
"Tell me Terra, what is the Flora Cats Tribe?" Samuel asked has he take notes of the light radiated.
"Any jungle feline you can think of. Lions, tigers, lynxes, ocelots, jaguar... if you are born into this tribe, you are taught how to do things like hunt and craft materials."
"Is it hard to be living in the tribe?"
"On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give it a 7. The leaders expect you to be able to do things on your own, how to be independent is what they teach us. Thus, you must really challenge yourself to be able to learn new things."
"Must be hard to living in such a tribe. Not to be boastful but... My intellect is what you call unnatural. And due to that, I seem to disconnect. It's hard for me to connect to everyone because of this. Only a few can seem to... Get along. How do you challenge yourself Terra?" Samuel then goes to crack a knuckle due to a slight pain.
Kaiira scratched the back of her head. She then continued watching the conversation, while entertaining herself by making her hand into a frost armor. While watching the conversation too, Blaster got sleepy, and slept near Kaiira's right foot, curling up into a ball in the process.
Terra chuckled. "I built my whole village, made materials, and go buy materials at other villages when the time comes. I think that's challenging myself, no?" She scratched her tail. "I just think of myself of the mother of the village. Whenever I can, I try to improve - both myself and the village."
The leopard from before seemed to continue wondering around, as if looking for something. Slithering along the deck nearby the most populated pool seemed to be what looked like a very, VERY long Egyptian Cobra. It seemed to be doing a great job of staying unseen, however, it wasn't long before some random lady scooped her kid up and started screaming bloody murder. Others nearby scattered at the fear of being anywhere near a snake of any kind, which made the leopard blink as her ears twitched. She huffed and began to slowly make her way towards the screaming of obviously over reacting people. Had they never seen a 6 foot long cobra before? Well, maybe not, but pointing and screaming at it won't do them any good if they're looking to not aggrivate it.
Samuel overheard the screams, decided to say goodbye to Terra and Kaiira, and sprinted to where the scream came. Upon arriving, he instantly noticed the leopard Mobian the most gigantic snake he has ever seen. He walked up to the Mobian asked.
"Excuse leopard Mobian miss! Is that snake even allowed to be on here?" Samuel asked the leopard Mobian with a slight commanding tone, but also a genuine concern with it.
As the leopard crouched down to let the snake slither up her arm and around her neck, she glanced at Samuel and raised an eyebrow, "Why yes. It is allowed on this ship. He and the two others are a part of my main acts." The feline said back with a bit of sass in her voice, her Spanish accent making her sound a bit more confident than most people. The cobras hood extended out a bit towards him, and the girl hushed it before it seemed to calm itself down.
"Act? Is there are a stadium for plays?!" The human said in shock, seeing he never was even told of acts. But he eyed the snake in caution however.
After Samuel left, Kaiira said a good-bye, and continued talking to Terra. "Cool!!" the fox beamed at Terra. "I'm just... an ordinary Freedom Fighter," the young arctic fox said, her voice melting away, as she gave Terra a shrug.
Terra smirked. "In my eyes, as long as you do good in the world, you're no 'ordinary' Mobian. You're a Freedom Fighter? That's something I can respect." She sighed deeply before deciding to speak again. "I have a friend like you, you know. She thinks she's just an ordinary person. But you're not. You're just being to humble," she said with a wink.
Kaiira gleamed, as she continued talking to Terra.
The leopard seemed to roll her eyes at this, before walking off as she seemed to mutter something rather offensive in Spanish, and the cobra seemed to hiss in agreement with whatever it was she had said.
"If the pay on this boat wasn't so good I wouldn't have to deal with these people." She muttered, and the cobra seemed to laugh.
"Well, it is a dry season after all. But Mistress, we will be able to go home and visit the others once this trip is over. After that, you will be able to relax for 3 months. Won't that be wonderful?" He spoke in an alluring voice, making the leopard sigh and nodded.
Samuel only stared where she left, felt rather offended by her comment, despite not knowing Spanish.
"I think she insulted me!" Samuel then decided to return to his room for the rest of the day.
Around the same time, Annabelle and Diamond found their way to the spa while Christian and Missy decided to stick around in their rooms buying up some movies to watch on the TVs.
"I'm most definitely getting the all inclusive facial...Oh, and that hot stone massage too." Diamond grinned as the two of them waited for an elevator.
"Hmmmm..." Cassidy hummed as he looked around at the various games in the arcade. "Is that the new Tekken Arcade?"
"Indeed it is," July replied. He then turned and pointed at Scotch.
"I challenge you to a game of Tekken!" The falcon announced.
"You don't have to be so dramatic..." Biggie sighed under his breath.
When July said that, Scotch was already at a PacMan cabinet, on the 7th level. "Come on! One more line!"
Annabelle and Diamond finally made it up to the spa level, being greeted by smiling faces as they began to read over the deals and specials, they grinned and talked together to see what they'd prefer to do.
"This guys wastes no time..." July said whilst shaking his head. The falcon then looked over to see that Cassidy and Biggie have already started playing Tekken without him.
"You guys too!?" July said in mock horror;
Scotch randomly stood behind July. "Hey I have an idea." Scotch pointed to Dance Dance Revolution.
"Alright! Now we're talking!" July exclaimed as he joined Scotch to play.
A Few Hours Since The Cruise Began
"Ladies and Gentlemen!" The voice of the captain echoed through the speakers that laced the large cruise ship! "The Night Rooms are officially open! The Club room (featuring are awesome DJ) is now open and the Casino Room is also now open! Stay tuned as the Open Mic segment of the club room will begin about 1 hour later! Also! The Buffet Room (hosted by our very own Sonic the Hedgehog as head chef) is also open!"
Around this time, Annabelle and Diamond had finished getting pampered and almost seemed to glow as they soon got back to their rooms. There, Christian and Missy seemed to have gotten some room service and were playing a game of Uno.
"Ladies! Lets get a move on! It's time to party!" Diamond announced, rushing towards their large balcony to see the sun beginning to disappear below the sea. Annabelle hopped out next to her to take a photo.
"God, it's gorgeous." The she wolf grinned, before Diamond rushed back inside.
"Time to hit the cluuuub~!" She howled, and began to go through her many suitcases for the perfect dress. Missy and Christian shrugged as they ended their game and went to go look for outfits as well.
Starting up DDR, Scotch set it and began dancing on the hardest difficulty, he moved around with speed and elegance, though he was busting a move like a break dancer, he laughed and continued dancing around. "Hey July, you know Sonic the Hedgehog?"
"I've only heard of him and seen him a couple of times in person. Including the times on this ship," July admitted. "But apparently Cass here has actually talked to the dude personally."
"Only once Bro!" Cassidy replied.
After a bit, Annabelle and her clique walk out of their cabins dressed to impress for the clubbing they planned to do. Annabelle looked at her dress as she walked out, her hair curled and up in a bun as Christian walked out right behind her.
"Annaaaa~! You look amazing!" The chipmunk grinned, and Missy hopped up and down happily in her high heels, "We should get some food sent to our rooms for whenever we get back. They have 24/7 room service after all!" She smirked, and Annabelle nodded.
"Good point," Anna responded, "I can never fall asleep on an empty stomach...The Captains Dinner is probably going to be in the next few days, so I've already gotten my outfit ready for it. It's all formal, remember?"
"Yeah!" Diamond and Missy chimed in, and the girls quickly headed off to the elevators to head to the club.
Scotch laughed and picked up the pace. "I know Sonic more than just that, dudes. He literally saved my home planet from Doctor Eggman, TWICE. I'm somewhat close to the guy but I don't talk to him much." He turned to dance while facing July.
He stopped dancing, getting a perfect. "Not that I'm saying I know Sonic personally, but anyways howsabout we play Sonic CD competitive mode?"
"I woouuuld..." July answered. "But we;ve gotta get ready for the club tonight."
"We've really spent the last few hours in here?" Biggie said. "Crazy..."
Scotch nodded. "I understand, I'll be looking forward to seeing you guys there, I have to go take care of some things, peace my dudes!" Scotch lifted up a tiny purple gem which made a glow, causing Scotch to zoom out of the arcade, things shaking partially.
Soon, Annabelle and her crew arrived at the club, and entered after showing their IDs to gain access. They marveled at it's size, quickly claiming a booth for themselves as they ordered some drinks to sip on. The music blared rather loudly as people began to rush the dance floor with their friends.
"This place is gorgeous!" Diamond said, seeming rather giddy..
"We better get ready boy," Cassidy suggested as he got up from his seat. "We've got a club to turn up!"
Biggie and July nodded as they got up and followed Cassidy to their rooms where they proceeded to get ready.
On one of the decks that lead the club, a older human gentleman in his mid-30s with orange-ish hair, and in odd refined clothing with a side-cape over his left shoulder walks towards, talking to himself as he writes in his book. "If I do that, the plot might change from my original idea. Maybe I add that Aldfor would combat against them!!!" He dramatically declare as he entered the club, holding his his right hand out with the book he was carrying.
Scotch raced through the halls, stopping at his door. Having nothing better to do he called up someone and began changing, talking on the phone.
Eventually the trio had dressed up for the club. Well almost all three of them.
"Seriously bro?" Cassidy questioned. "Not even a pair of pants,"
"I know you're a Naturalist bro," July said smoothly. "But there are some places where it's just socially acceptable to dress in some form of clothing."
Biggie sighed. "Most pants don't even fight a body like mine anyway."
"Well, if you reverted to your other form you wouldn't be going through this." Cassidy replied
"People get way more intimidated by that form," Biggie argued.
"At least wear a shirt please?" July requested.
Biggie looked at July, then looked at Cassidy and then looked back at July.
"Fine," Biggie finally said as he gave in. "Only for you guys."
Cassidy whooped and have July a high-five.
Kiritsugu is sitting down at one of the soft chairs with a table in the middle at the club, writing in his book to find a good entertainer action. "Hmm.. Once everyone gets here, maybe I'll ask their preference in terms of entertainment. Yeah, that will work!!" He dramatically write in the book while a intense dramatic song played in his mind. "And I shall take this potato chip, and EAT IT!!!!" The intensity of the song soon become a projected reality as the song is now heard throughout the ship.
(To get the idea, the song is similar to Death Note when Light eats the potato chip, and that song bursts in. Yeah that XD)
Diamond seemed to scoff in annoyance, "Where is that trash coming from?" She said to her comrades as her ears twitched, before Missy grumbled, "Maybe someone hijacked the intercom or something as a joke..."
Annabelle raised an eyebrow, and tried to clear her head, "Whatever it is it's not distracting me from my good time. C'mon Diamond, lets get out there." The she wolf grabbed Diamonds hand and the two rushed the dancefloor, a few admirers moving a bit to allow them through as they began to dance together.
Christian continues to sit with Missy, the bat keeping her company as they're offered drinks by a passing server.
Then out of nowhere, a sound someone screaming is heard from one of the chairs, all the while the song stops as if he was the one who did it. "I DID IT!!! I beat your FACE Vincent!! Hahahahaha!!" The human male stood from his chair, and poses while he held his book. "This majestic story shall bring all hearts to joy and sorrow! All the while feeling the anger and rage betrayals! All the forces colliding to stop a singular entity from ending the world! This book shall bring enjoyment!" He stops as he wave his hands into the air like a lunatic before sitting down, and have a drink of his wine. Wherever it came from.
Annabelle and Diamond stare at him from the dance floor, before glancing between each other beforethe chipmunk speaks up, "I didn't know we were cruising with a bunch of lunatics that forgot to get out of their cosplays..." She scoffed, "He puts those Nerds at DHS to shame, doesn't he~?" She smirked.
"As if I needed another reason to feel better about myself..." Annabelle sighed.
"A lunatic you say?!" The human was at Annebelle and Diamond's face, but the human was also sitting at the chair at the same time. "And this is not cosplay Mobians. Over in Great Britain, we still have our medieval attire, because traditions!! And I am a play and story writer. Rude to comment on one's appearance and how they act without knowing them!" He then burst into nothing, while the Kiritsugu just sat there, drinking wine like nothing happened.
The two mobians just stood there, rolling their eyes, before Diamond glanced at Annabelle, "Did you give a flying f about whatever that lunatic just said...?" She scoffed, and the she wolf rolled her eyes.
"You couldn't pay me enough to give a crap about whatever garbage he just spouted...Maybe he forgot to take his meds..." Annabelle replied, making Diamond giggle as the two whispered back and forth. The chipmunk giggled and the two rushed along to get back to their friends who were still seated across the way. Missy gasped as she noticed the two return, "Did you see that absolute weirdo? I think he just wants some attentiooooon...~" The bat whispered, while Christian seemed to be busy on her phone doing...whatever it was she usually did.
As the two mobians walked off with their friends, a black cat notices the Human male and was eyeing him. "Why is he here?" She whispered, knowing who he truly is. Getting up, she walked over to the 35+ year old male, and sat at the table with him.
Kiritsugu looks up to see the mobian cat while he drank. "Need something there darling?"
"Yes, I am wondering why is the Grand Alchemist such as yourself doing in the place like this?" She asked, and the human sips the last of his wine.
"I am here for a break from the Association, and to also have some entertainment to the crowed!!" He cheered. "And good day, I need some more wine." He winks and walks off after he got up. Nightshade scoffs and leaves the club.
"A Human prince whose I.Q is not even naturally possible, now we have a human spellcaster." She spoke to her as she returns to her home. "When are we at our next location anyways?"
At this moment another person entered the club, a brown curvy mobian fox with purple eye shadow and a dark purple crop top. She also wore tight pink pants and a dark purple shoes. Her eyes scanned the club and she seemed to be looking for somebody in particular. She eventually shrugged and settled for sitting on a stool at the nearby bar.
Meanwhile, Cassidy, July and Biggie had finally gotten dressed and were heading to Scotch's Room. Cassidy was wearing a black long sleeved jumper with a blue plaid jacket over it. He also wore black jeans and black and white vans shoes.
"You think Scotch is dressed?" July asked as the trio walked. He was wearing a grey shirt with a black coat and black jeans.He completed his outfit with black jordan trainers, black shades and a black fedora (kind off like what Ne-Yo wears).
"I'd be surprised if he wasnt to be honest," Biggie responded. He had settled for a navy blue leather jacket and his own pair of shades which he kept above his head. "That is one hyper dude."
"Dont worry about Scotch guys," Cassidy assured. "What y'all really need to focus on is what we're gonna perform for that open mic segment."
"We've already decided," July and Biggie stated in unison.
"Say whuh?" Cassidy said, clearly bamboozled.
"We've got a cover song planned out bro," July said. "You're the only one who never planned anything."
Cassidy's eyes widened. "Oh man! I need to come up with something."
"Especially if you wanna impress Miss Rich," Biggie joked.
"Ha.......ha," Cassidy replied flatly.
As they neared the room, Scotch kicked his door open wearing a white tuxedo top with black pants and a white fedora with his shades down. "You've been hit by-!" he clapped twice. "You've been struck by- a Smooth Criminal!" He did a couple of moves before coming to a posing stop. "What do you guys think, huh?"
"Looking good Scotch!," July replied. "Seems like we have a good fashion sense."
"Cassidy chuckled. "Seems like you guys can be the Jackson Two."
Christian laid across one of the love seat like sofas while the others seemed to be busy taking a few pictures, posting them to social media while the cat scrolled through social media, more than likely not in the mood to get too into it as of yet. Annabelle sat with her and did her best to cheer the girl up.
Scotch looked at Cassidy. "Guess so, hell maybe July and I could do a Jackson song together sometime at the club. What do you think?" his gaze turned to July.
"Sounds like a plan," July replied. He then started a short moonwalk before spinning. "Seems like you already know Smooth Criminal."
"Of course, who wouldn't know one of the best Michael songs." he said, leaning forward so far he was mimicking Jackson himself. "Then there's Beat it and Thriller. So, when are you, or we, gonna head for the club?"
In the club, Wayne mans the DJ station with his headphones on, giving quick shout outs to the guests that begin to enter the club as they cheer and rush to join the others on the dance floor. The lights around the dance floor seem to go along with whatever the beat was, the lights flashing and roaming over the crowd on the dance floor.
"Right now!" Cassidy replied triumphantly.
"Let's do this boys!" Biggie agreed.
The trio then began to walk towards the club side by side in unison. Before they got too far Cassidy stopped.
"You coming with us Scotch?" he asked.
Scotch was already practicing his dance moves a ways in front of them. "I could ask you the same thing! Let's boogie my dudes!" he stopped dancing and waited on them with a grin.
"This guy will never cease to amaze me," July said under his breath.
"In the words of The Perceptionists..." Biggie announced. "Let's move!"
Scotch nodded and walked their way to the club, opening the door with the trio. "After you guys, it's only necessary." he said, letting out a small snicker.
"Funny..." July replied as he walked into the club. The DJ seemed to have this place jumping and he stared in amazement as Cassidy and Biggie followed behind him.
"Boys, let's get this place turnt!" Cassidy announced.
Scotch grinned and stood beside them both. "I must look like your roadie or something," he laughed. "Anyways, do you guys need anything to drink?"
"I could go for a drink," July replied.
"Screw a drink! Buy a whole bottle." Cassidy replied.
"I guess that makes sense. That way we don't need to line back up everytime." Biggie agreed.
Missy found herself nudging the others when the group came in, and gestured to them as Annabelle smirked. Diamond scoffed, "That weird dude is with them though. Ugh, I hate guys like that." She muttered as Missy nodded in agreement.
July nudged Cassidy lightly and the raccoon nodded. "Seems like we're being watched," Cassidy muttered.
"Let's go get our drinks first," July replied. "Then we can focus on impressing some ladies.'
"Good idea," Cassidy replied.
The trio then headed towards the bar in order to grab some bottles. They assumed that Scotch was following them.
Scotch was indeed following, attaching a small jewel to his tie he eventually caught up to them. "I want some scotch ironically enough." he said, jokingly toned.
July chuckled and Cassidy rolled his eyes while grinning.
"One bottle of Scotch," Cassidy asked as he appraoched the bar. He then turned to the gang and asked what they would like to order.
"Can I get one 'Up Over and Gone'?" Biggie replied.
"I think I'll have a 'Sweetest Passion'," July replied.
Cassidy and Biggie looked at the falcon and he shrugged. "Amy branded or not, i'm not looking to get wasted and it tastes great."
He nodded and took his bottle of Scotch. "Anyways," he said, turning to July. "So are we doing Smooth Criminal or Beat it after you guys do your thing?" he asked.
“Smooth Criminal sounds appropriate,” July replied whilst grinning at a Cassidy.
“Funny,” Cassidy said. “We don’t talk about my past on vacation bro.”
Diamond sighed as she tapped her heel on the floor, swirling around the liquid inside of the cup in her hand as she groaned, "I wish they would play something I could dance to. I don't even know what this DJ is doing right now." She whined. Missy glanced towards the dance floor before speaking up, "It may be some kind of request or something. People probably put in for these songs before the club got too crowded." She suggested.
Scotch grabbed his 40oz bottle. "Hey guys, check this out!" he put the top to his mouth and started chugging the giant bottle, not even stopping to take a breath.
"Is that safe?" July asked.
"Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!" Biggie cheered while Cassidy was just watching in shock.
Diamond glanced over her shoulder to see Scotch chugging the bottle as she rolled her eyes, "Ugh, the guy who needs attention to survive is here." She scoffed in annoyance, crossing her legs as Christian glances over.
"...You think he's trying to make himself sick or something doing that?" She squinted his eyes in disbelief, before Missy spoke up as she looked up from her own glass, "I dunno but at this rate there won't be any left for the REST of us." She scoffed, earning a small giggle from Diamond.
Scotch downed the entire bottle, tossing it into a nearby garbage can. "And THAT my friends is how I earned my name and reputation as an alcohol contest winner, thank you, thank you." he playfully said, laughing. He turned to Diamond. "Hey, at least I'm not a ripoff of a Heathers character." he snickered.
Diamond blinked, looking around as she glanced to Missy, "Hey, sis, did you hear something? Like...A living representation of a try-hard? I can barely catch the sound of it...?"
"Mm, no, sounds more like a man-child." The bat responded as the both shrugged in unison, while Christian continued to lay on the love seat next to them. She waved a hand for a waiter to come by as she took two glasses off of the tray as she began to sip from them, while Annabelle glanced over at Diamond and Missy.
"Now now, calm down you guys. There's no reason to be rude. We're on vacation, alright?" The she wolf advised, while Diamond and Missy huffed in unison and folded their arms, "And besides, it's not his fault he wants to show off in front of in such a crowded place, and not to mention in front of girls like us. I'm surprised you're not use to it by now Diamond." She gave the chipmunk a small playful wink as the girl in question blinked as she scoffed a little while trying to find an answer.
"Mm, I dunno, I guess I'm more into bad boys these days? Someone who just walks in the room and can be irresistable without even having to say anything, like your boyfriend Jason or...Like that Dante guy. You know, the one that's totally got the hots for Ciara but is too stubborn to admit it?" Diamond explained, before the posse went into a whole new conversation all together.
Scotch turned to the guys. "Jeez, I wish I could speak my mind right now." he motioned the guys over to a booth. "I swear, you're the only cool people I've met on this cruise."
"Well we try..." Cassidy replied as he took a seat in the booth.
A few minutes later the door to the DJ booth opened and a very familiar looking Mobian bat approached Wayne and tapped him on the shoulder.
"Good job getting this place started." Rouge the Bat thanked with a wink.
Scotch looked over at Rouge and tapped July. "Guys, check it. It's Rouge the Bat. I didn't even know she would be here."
"Rouge the bat? As in the government spy?" July questioned.
(( I'm aliiiiive! But this page sure isn't XD - Anna ))
Wayne blinked as he was tapped on the shoulder, and turned around as his eyes seemed to widen a little. Nevertheless he grinned and winked right back at her, "Why thank you. I do my best~" He chuckled.
"Are you ready for my performance?" Rouge asked.
The DJ smirked and winked at her, "Whenever you're ready hot stuff." He chuckled, turning back around to make sure everything was ready.
"Last time I saw her was when Space Colony ARK was crashing to Earth." he shrugged. "Who wants to see me chug another 42 ounces of scotch again? he asked. He snatched his bottle and held it up in the air triumphantly. "Hangover here I come!"
A man would knock on the door for Matt's attention.
“Good,” Rouge said with a nod. She walked out of the DJ booth and headed to a nearby backstage-like area where she prepares for her performance.
“You do know that a hangover isn’t a good thing right?” July questioned
Biggie just shook his head and looked at Cassidy.
“So, when are you gonna go talk to Miss Rich over there? Don’t think I haven’t been noticing your sneak glances” Biggie asked.
Cassidy looked at Biggie with slight embarrassment. “Give a raccoon some time. It’s not like we can all just approach her and her squad as a group.”
Captain Matt heard the knock on the door and headed towards it.
Scotch had disappeared for a few hours, but he finally returned, his clothes were slightly less flashy and he was texting on his phone before sitting down with the group. "Hey, sorry I took so long, I kinda had an odd realization and I was fixing myself up. So Cassidy, are you gonna go talk to her eventually? In all honesty I have no interest in prissy rich girls, they're too much effort." his demeanor was a bit more solemn than usual. "That's why I like staying single, it's so much easier to just enjoy life."
Cassidy glanced over at scotch, then glanced back at Annabelle's crew, then glanced back at Scotch. "Look my man, I'd love to go talk to her. BUT, it's not that easy. You gotta play your cards right, find and opportunity and then seize that thing by it's horns."
"And then you also need to build up confidence, something you clearly don't have Cass," Biggie snickered.
"Aight, y'know what? I'll show you confidence. I'm gonna perform first." Cassidy announced cockily.
"With what song?" July asked, swirling his drink around like a mafia boss.
"I'll figure it out. I always do," Cassidy replied wholst glancing in Annabelle's direction. "Besides, it's what I do."
Scotch looked at July while sipping from the bottle he ordered. "When it comes to me, I prefer just charging in head on. I don't really have much of a snappy comeback, I just wanna see how Cassidy handles this. Like I said, too much effort for girls like Little Miss Haunted Doll over there." he pointed at Annabelle to specify his joke.
"Because you don't have the guts to go get her yourself?" Cassidy aked nonchalantly.
Scotch looked at July. "Yo, July. Forget Smooth Criminal, let's pop Gangster's Paradise in when we sing."
