    Default Tale as Old As Last Wednesday II [Maid IC]

    Once upon a time...Though, I suppose at this rate it's twice upon a time now...

    In the kingdom of Osshia, there was a prince who had been transformed into a monster, and sent to live in an ancient palace full of magic and wonder. And talking animals, because why not? With his loyal servants, Terran and Mozart (well, Mozart's his cat; long story), he bides his time, hoping one day, he'll find a way to break the spell.
    His parents, The King and the current Queen his step-mother, have some ideas about that. To wit, making them hire crew of maids after crew of maids. If they didn't usually panic at the sight of him, Leon wouldn't mind. This is, however, the umpteenth set of maids. Will they fare any better? (Yes) Will love be able to overcome the spell of a wicked ex-girlfriend witch? (I dunno) Find out!

    Previously, all the maids assembled. We have:
    Lune, a mysterious mermaid with some unknown relationship with a fairy left sleeping in a box only Leon could open. Her relationship with Merry is strained at best, and sometimes violent at worst. She’s plagued by doubt about her fate and the nature of her own existence. Recently, she met a mysterious woman who seemed to help her find some resolve and peace. She’s currently off napping.
    Yuki, an assassin sent to guard the prince and hopefully keep herself out of serious trouble in the process … Cool and level-headed, when she’s not hopelessly drunk. She has an artificial arm that has a tendency to pop off under stress. Her relationship with everyone seems to be pretty cordial, as befitting someone trained to be, in all things, a professional. She’s seduced a wardrobe monster and scared off a devil. Leon calls her a “snowflake.”
    Ante, a secret demoness on the run from her previous employers in the Underworld. This is a fact known only to her sister Hani, Leon, and Yuki, who teases her about it. Has a history of clothing damage and failed jobs. One of the more duty-bound maids, she’s grateful for Leon’s offers of protection…And Leon’s grateful for her efforts to encourage his spirits. She thinks that Merry is a lesbian, due to comical misunderstandings.
    Hani, a shapeshifting tiger cub-girl, and Ante’s sister by adoption. She’s excessively shy and meek, largely unable to hold conversations with anyone other than her sister. As a result, none of the other maids have spoken to her at length, and Leon and Terran’s most determined efforts have borne little fruit. Yuki may be the only other maid who’s spoken to her so far – but that’s about to change, as she’s paired with Merry for the current task. Mozart’s resolved to take her under his paw as a fellow cat. Tends to run off and cause trouble.
    Merry, the other devil girl. She was Leon’s “imaginary friend” when he was a boy, sent to manipulate and lead him into darkness. They never really got up to more than mischief, but now she’s back to try and understand her old friend – and maybe the first person she ever thought of as her friend. Since he doesn’t know that it’s her, it’s an awkward connection. She’s got a weak relationship with the other maids, since she’s somewhat lazy and presents herself insincerely. She’s taken under her protection a mysterious skeleton, some distant relative of Leon’s who lived and died in the manor, long, long ago. There’s not much known about him, but he seems nice enough.


    They each met Leon in turn (Ante met him in the garden, the rest in an arranged meeting), and they ended up learning about some of the castle’s odd inhabitants, such as the dueling surfer bats and French mice, fighting for the tower above the kitchen. Yes, we really just said that.
    Hani ran off, causing a mass search that led to videogame references, a number of LeonxMerry scenes in the woods (including an old legend about a love-maddened king, remember that for later), Terran and Yuki taking odd secret passages, and so on.

    This morning, a fight broke out between Lune and Merry, sparking Lune to spend some alone time with Leon that led to the revealing of the contents of a box in the secret lab: a fairy, asleep to the world for untold centuries. This person has a relationship with Lune that tears the mermaid apart, but Leon can’t just abandon a pretty girl in need.
    In the meanwhile, the rest of the maids were dealing with referential gophers on the grounds, and Hani went in and panicked everyone again, but ended up working out a solution. A talking fox was involved.
    The bad relationship between Lune and Merry means the two will have to be moved around soon, to find a better sleeping arrangement…

    But for now, it’s time to clean and repurpose the old bath! To adventure! Leon and Yuki are researching, aided by Lune when she recovers, while Hani and Merry are working on sweeping and dusting (with Mozart, should he emerge) and Terran and Ante work to try and move the rubble.

    Terran asked. This was just Hani and Merry, but he was mostly looking for a response from Hani here, to make sure she wasn't having an aneurism or something.
    Hani nodded, ready to follow.

    Upon waking she didn't feel so sad anymore though she probably didn't have that plastic happy face anymore either. She doubted she ever would again.

    She probably looked...ordinary but perhaps with a wisp of sadness in the back of her eye.

    " Oh, hello Ante, please do come in." She said in a soft tone.
    Ante enters quietly.

    Say what you will about demons, about them not having a soul, about them being heartless monsters, about them wanting nothing more than to torment the damned until the end of eternity.

    One thing that they get good at, after so many years of dealing with human torment, is reading it on someone's face. And Ante could read it a mile away, like the difference between the sun and moonlight, she could tell that Lune was not feeling herself.

    She stood before the girl, part of her wanting to sit down beside her, but reminding herself this was not Hani she was comforting, but a grown, adult woman.

    Unfortunately, she had little experience with comforting anyone but Hani, so she would have to make do.

    "Lune...you look rather upset...praytell, what is the matter?"

    Yuki tilts her head slightly. "They are not readily available. It is more of a 'specialist' weapon, reserved for more experienced operatives who have earned and learned the ability to use them. While rookie operatives may only know how to use basic blades, poisons, and hand-to-hand techniques, older and more experienced agents may know how to use everything from a paring knife to an enchanted musket," she muses offhandedly.

    "Ah, that's rather....Really, an Enchanted Musket?"

    He paused and blinked, clearly contemplating the notion of getting shot with one of the rarest weapons on the continent. Firearms? Uncommon. Magic? Uncommon. Firearms that shot magic? Well, that required both of them, at once.

    He shook his head and tried to return his topic to reality.

    "...That said, I can't imagine you're not skilled in paring knives, at the very least. But I was thinking... While I don't deny that Oshia is worth your people's attention, in my current state, I'm...a little surprised to hear I'm worth the bother."

    A little dry chuckle escaped his throat as he added,

    "Of course, their attention brought me the pleasure of your company, so I daren't complain, lest the universe rise against me."

    Lune weighed the pros and cons of opening up as she lay there.

    In the end she decided at least to half open up.

    " Oh Ante." She sighed.

    " I have learned something terrible, a fact which has changed everything, my outlook and my future. "

    Her eyes stared at a slightly open window on the wall.

    " And please do not ask the nature of this fact I beg you, talking about it directly would break my heart. Maybe when I'm ready i'll be able to say it aloud but that day is not today. I'm afraid I can't be the same girl that appeared on the beach ever again but perhaps that is for the better."

    The way I talk now. I feel so...real now. Will it always be like this from now on?

    Yuki smirks faintly. "Actually, the possibility of the universe rising up against you is exactly why I am here," she says aloofly, before stepping on into the library.

    "You see, Prince Leon, my Order favors stability, progress, culture, and other positive traits in society and civilization," she observes with an idle wave of her right hand as she slowly walks around, her eye wandering over the many books that no doubt populate the chamber. "We are not a motley crew of cutthroats and scoundrels. Rather, we are more like gardeners, really, and we remove weeds that would threaten the balance of order - murderers, criminals, blood mages, mad scientists, destructive cults, so on and so forth."

    She pauses, and looks back over her shoulder at Prince Leon, her expression becoming firm and serious. "You have the potential to do great things, m'lord. There are some, no doubt, who would prefer to see you not reach that potential. Unfortunately for them, you now have a very skilled 'gardener' watching over you," she says, cracking a knowing little smirk.

    A smile crossed the prince's lips, and he looked at Yuki with a certain measure of warm-hearted respect.

    "You're certainly passionate; I can't say I expected such strong words."

    His tone of voice implied that whatever surprise he felt was pleasant -- maybe even a relief.

    As he strolled into the library, he kept his face away from the assassin. It seemed he knew his way around it well, moving slowly but with little wasted effort. He paused in the center of the library, where the second floor wasn't covering the first, leaving the room open to its domed roof. Leon stared at faded moulding and a worn fresco.

    "But what I meant was... No matter how excellent a flower's blooms might be, there's no point in hiring a gardener to keep away insects if the plant's in a circumstance where it's incapable of blooming.

    Right now, the people who'd rather me out of the way -- and I've no illusions about them, after all. There's power in it, in the end -- don't have to do anything. Maybe the right conversation, but... It'd really be more bother than results to send someone after my life. Right now, I'm no good to anyone; there's no dodging or sugar-coating it. I'm not fit to be seen in public, much less inherit."

    Yuki clasps her hands behind her back, her eye wandering up towards the second floor. "While I won't argue that your current circumstances do limit you options in politics and such, you need to reconsider something else you just said. 'Right now.' Right now does not mean forever. Eventually, things will change. It is the nature of the universe," she muses.

    Once more, the assassin-maid begins to slowly walk about, looking from shelf to shelf in curiosity. "There will come a day when things change. One way or another, through magic or science or sheer force of will, you will overcome your current circumstances."

    She then turns her gaze back towards Leon, and narrows her eye. "And that, sir, is something your enemies would like to avoid. Strategically speaking, it would be easier for you to be 'handled' now while you are out of the public eye, rather than once you have returned to the spotlight. If your enemies were wise, they'd try to deal with you now, while it's easier. Unfortunately for them..."

    She smirks proudly. "I'm in the way, and will remain as such to the best of my abilities."

    Everyone's optimism was really quite charming. Misplaced? Who's to say. But when one person believed a totally baseless thing, out of the sheer certainty that it'd be death to believe otherwise, that was madness. When other people believed it? Ah, perhaps then, it was faith.

    "Oh, I...I believe I'll get out of this mess. But I think you over-estimate the faith men in power have in me; as far as they know for sure, I've been so mad I can't be spoken to for two years. You don't recover from that, particularly not when you're 'a dangerously childish, womanizing fop'. Still...I shall do my best not to underestimate the faith your people have in me, too."

    His expression made it difficult to tell how serious he was about any of this -- he had a flippant smile through the whole thing, growing, if anything, even more careless when it got to the 'dangerously childish' part.

    When he turned back to her again, swooping into an at-the-waist bow as he did so, he had a lively, mischievous little smile.

    "...I could not ask for a finer or more lovely protector. Now, let's see if we can't find some sort of blueprint or record."

    Terran nodded and began his escort. He walked out a door in the side of the dining hall, into a room with some formal-looking sofas and chairs, old fine art, the floor coated in plush rugs. The parlor, in other words.

    And from there...
    "...It really is in a state."

    He sighed. The room was open to the sky, bits of rock wall crumbling off at the sides. There were broken frames that may have once held a divider, separating the area where people would soap up and get undressed from the lowered bath. As Leon had promised Lune, it was a very large bath -- you could really go swimming in it. Well, if it had water. The room was full of dust and leaves, chunks of what was probably the roof and the tops of the walls littering it. The changing area had benches that, by this point, had little flowers growing on them. Some storm had knocked in tree branches.

    "...The blame for this task resteth squarely with one of you maids, 'tis certain. He'd never given it regard until such time as women were present."

    Terran looked worn-out just looking at it.

    Yuki smiles softly, giving a small nod. "Very well, sir. Let us try our luck..."

    And the assassin proceeds to do exactly that! She heads for the next bookcase, and begins to peruse it in search of some clue as to what it might hold, and where the records they seek may actually be...

    When she picks up a book and flips it open, Leon takes pause. They've wandered into an older section of library, in hopes of finding, well, older things.

    "Wait, that's the section for --"

    His voice fades into silent as something wraps around Yuki. For a moment, she sees the title:
    Summoning The Monster at the End of this Book - High Magic Edition

    She lands in a strange landscape. There's a brick wall and a blue sky behind her and white in front of her, and there's a cheerful-looking creature next to her. The space is limited -- a room, maybe? And in the corner...Something's....Sticking up from the ground, like a folded-over piece of blanket.

    The creature is a small, kind of animal-looking thing, though it's not like any animal specifically. It has shaggy green fur and softly-padded paw-hands, little fangs, and a pair of horns.

    "Hello there, friend! Welcome to..."

    He glances at the brick wall. The title of the book is written there.

    "Summoning the Monster at the End of this Book." It face drops the smile and grows horrified as it contemplates that title.

    Yuki frowns in annoyance. "I really should have brought the pistols," she grumbles, before tilting her head slightly at the create. "A monster, you say? What kind of monster? What does it desire of us? And what are you, yourself?" she asks flatly.

    "I'm your friendly neighborhood Grundle. Who are you?" The smile was back. And then it was replaced by something nervously furtive, as it had to face the topic of the monster.

    "I don't know....Oh, but it can't be good. I bet it wants to eat us. To much us and crunch us and have us for dinner. That's usually what monsters want."

    He began pacing.

    Yuki gives a polite nod. "My name is Yuki."

    She then holds up her left hand and flicks her wrist. In the blink of an eye, her trusty kitchen knife is deftly held between her fingers. "And I am an assassin who has removed more than a few monsters from existence. If there is monster that intends to make a meal out of either of us..." she pauses, narrowing her eye ominously, "It won't be without quite the struggle."

    "How do you know?! It could be anything, Yuki. It could be the unfathomable darkness that lurks in all hearts, even!...I mean, under the bed."

    He realized that he was, after all, for kids. He paced about, fretting.
    Then, with a slightly manic smile, he sprang up.

    "Oh, oh, I know! It's at the end of the book, right? But here we are, safe and sound, right here at the beginning! So, Yuki, if we just stay here, we'll be perfectly safe!"

    Yuki pulls her hip flask from under her skirt and tosses it to the monster.

    "Here. You need this more than I do," she deadpans, before looking around with a frown. "Which way to the back of the book?"

    "I'm not allowed to drink! This is a kid's book, you know?"

    He insisted, looking at the flask uneasily. He was a children's Grundle, darnit!

    "Oh, you want to help guard it? Well, you get to the end of the book by turning the pages, of course. Like these."

    He pointed to the odd corner.

    "You can just reach over there and turn the page -- BUT DON'T DO IT!"

    Ante and Lune

    Yes...Ante decided this definitely warranted sitting beside her on the bed, at the very least so that she wouldn't be standing and talking to her awkwardly.

    "I...cannot say that I know what to say to that, Lune...I would very much prefer if you could tell us what has happened...but I understand your desire not to. In your own time, if and when you feel it is appropriate, know that I will not judge you any more harshly for your revelation."

    "As for changing who you are...there are those who say a person's inner self can never change. That we are forged the way we are, and no circumstance can alter that which we are fated to."

    "I have always felt this was an incredibly stupid notion, and have since embraced the idea that people can and will change."
    Ante concludes with a happy smile. "You too may change, Lune, but if you feel it is for the better, than so be it, so long as it is for the better of you as well as us."

    Yuki frowns. "My mission is to protect Prince Leon. I cannot exactly do that while trapped in a ridiculous book, now can I?" she says, before marching towards the page corner. "The sooner I am free from this literary sorcery, the better."

    And with that, she tries to turn the page!

    Ante and Lune

    "Oh Ante! You are such a wonderful soul!" Lune smiled with a bit relief and love shining in her eyes.

    She hugged the maid tightly.

    " It is for best I know it. One day when I am not afraid to confess and cement this fact into reality I wish everyone will be as understanding as you."

    Ante, who did not by any means expect such a sudden turn of emotions, falls on her back upon being hugged. Were this an anime, which it is, she would have comical spiral eyes, which she does.

    "Ahehehe." Ante laughs, carefully avoiding awkward positioning of body parts. 'Tis good to see your spirits have soared once more, Lune. We had best get going though. I believe you, Yuki, and Leon are to do some research in the library together, whilst I and the others repair the baths."

    " I shall hurry off immeadiately then. " She smiled. " I am so happy that Master Leon went ahead with the bath repairs."

    Lune had left her uniform during her nap. Smoothing out the wrinkles and slipping her shoes back on over her socks she was ready.

    " I shall see you later Ante!! Thank you for coming to get me!!" She hadn't bothered to put her ribbons in her hair. They had symbolized and reminded her who she had been versus who she was now. Leaving them out felt like a small sign that it was okay to be just as she was now. So as she dashed off to the library, her long pink hair flew in the wind behind her.

    Like a long satin ribbon itself.

    "Ah....it does my heart good to help a person's soul recover...perhaps...perhaps I truly can change myself as well..."

    Ante let herself smile, truly a happy and joyous smile, as she herself made her way to the baths to help in reparations.

    ----

    That smile quickly vanished when she entered the baths.

    "Oh my stars and garters would you LOOK AT THIS PLACE?!" She practically yelps at the sight. "What in the world happened here?!"

    "...It really is in a state."

    He sighed. The room was open to the sky, bits of rock wall crumbling off at the sides. There were broken frames that may have once held a divider, separating the area where people would soap up and get undressed from the lowered bath. As Leon had promised Lune, it was a very large bath -- you could really go swimming in it. Well, if it had water. The room was full of dust and leaves, chunks of what was probably the roof and the tops of the walls littering it. The changing area had benches that, by this point, had little flowers growing on them. Some storm had knocked in tree branches.

    "...The blame for this task resteth squarely with one of you maids, 'tis certain. He'd never given it regard until such time as women were present."

    Terran looked worn-out just looking at it.
    Hani cringed at the slight. "S-Sorry," she squeaked.

    Merry

    "Wait what?...You mean past maids right? Cuz' I don't remember any of us doing this...unless I'm really out of the loop.."
    Merry's nose sniffled as she then let out a barrage of really loud sneezes from all the dust. She counted her sneezes with her fingers as four fingers and a thumb popped up. Five sneezes, she nodded, seemingly pleased for some reason.

    In the Library

    When Lune came into the library, she'd find it empty...Empty except for, of course... For a single book, lying on the floor in one of the corner sections, shut tightly.

    ----

    In the Book

    She turned the page. The next page looked much the same as the first, except that Grundle was panicking in it.

    "You turned it! I asked you not to turn the page, but you did it anyway! Now there's only 5 pages left before The Monster at the End of This Book!"

    He wailed.

    ------
    The Bath

    Terran shook his head.
    "I didn't mean to imply you maids brought forth this...disaster. No, 'twas whatever caused the castle to fall into ruin, or perhaps the grinding of centuries upon it."

    He raised his hands in a 'look, it's ok' sort of gesture and continued,

    "I merely meant -- and in jest, Miss Hani, so pay it no mind -- There was clear mischief in His Highness's heart when he assigned us this work; He seeketh the restoration of this bath for there art ladies here to make use of it."

    " Master Leon?" she called out loudly.

    " Yuki?" She called again. " Are you here?"

    No answer.

    Approaching the book as she was yelling out, she glanced down at it when she reached it.

    How cute.

    Without giving it a second thought, she opened it.
