[The video takes place in the garden of a large estate house at night; however, the area is well-lit from the windows of the houses, where a party is going on inside.

Meridiana, the girl Jezebel resurrected from the dead, is running through the garden as fast as she can, dress streaming behind her. Chasing her is Earl Cain, the aristocrat that Jezebel was poisoning.]

Wait! Come back! There's something I need to ask you!

Go away!

[Cain trips as he runs, sending them both sprawling, him landing on top of her. He balks for a moment before she reaches up and slaps him.]

How long do you think you're going to sit on me! If you have a question to ask, why don't you behave in a civil way?!

[Cain sits back and chuckles.] You're quite the aggressive lady.

Oh! That's right...I forgot that this was how I was in the past.


Let her go, Cain. [Jezebel walks out from behind a statue, knife in hand.] If you don't, I will slash your throat. [He grins a little.] It's been a long time, hasn't it?

[Cain glares.]You don't look bad for a corpse who crawled out of casket, doctor. Being a homicidal maniac suits you.

Unhand the girl, Cain.

[Cain pulls out a revolver, pointing it towards Jezebel's head.]I will not.

[Jezebel chuckles.] Oh ho ho...many men are shallow enough to fall for superficial beauty. I'm disappointed you're one of them.

You're wrong. I didn't fall for her appearance. It was that I felt something very special when I touched her.

[Jezebel frowns for a moment, holding the knife out towards Cain.] Let's go home, Meridiana. You must be starving.

[Cain stands, walking closer, gun aimed for Jezebel's face.] Drop the knife, doctor!

[Jezebel smiles.] Disarming me doesn't get you anywhere, Earl Cain. I've become a much more cautious man.

[There's a rustling of leaves and then suddenly a form hurtles at Cain, landing on his back and striking him across the head. Cain slumps, unconscious. The attacker stands; it's Cassian, Jezebel's assistant. He nods down at Cain.]

You want me to kill him, doc?

Not yet.

[Cassian smirks.] Killing your younger brother pricks your conscience? Even if he isn't related by blood?

[Jezebel glares at him while pulling out a hypodermic needle.] You might want to rid yourself of that sense of curiosity, Cassian.

[He kneels over Cain and grins.] It's alright, Cain, I won't hurt you. The only thing that might be uncomfortable is that your pretty eyes will be gone when you wake up...

[Meridiana shrieks and slaps the needle out of his hand.] Stop it!

[Jezebel blinks, surprised, until a voice on the other side of the garden yells out 'Is someone there?' Cassian and Jezebel quickly scatter from the scene, leading Meridiana away with them before they're caught.

This doesn't bode well. Earl Cain deliberately sought us out, and given his talent for nosiness, I have no doubt he's going to continue seeking us out. Especially now that he seems to have decided he's head over heels for Meridian. Good God.

I'm surprised by Meridiana. She continues to remain emotionless...except for when she's with Earl Cain. But she claims to be frightened of him.

Hmm. This isn't going to be quite so easy to keep up.

((The scene is abridged a little just to keep it from going on forever. Also, text colors are as follows: pink for Meridiana, red for Cain, green for Cassian, blue for Jezebel.))

That guy is your brother?

Interesting that the girl's behaviour isn't quite as straightforward as you thought.

In a sense. But not by blood.

It's only started changing recently. She had a strong sudden reaction when she saw Earl Cain at a party, and then again just now. Other than that, she's been much the same.

In what sense, then?

Hmmm...fascinating. Be careful, Jez. Horror movies have taught me not to discount that sort of thing in one's creations.

His father has considered me a sort of foster son since not long after my arrival at Delilah.

Movies? [/Victorian Era derpfail] I'll do my best to keep an eye on her. If the Earl's going to be sniffing around, we'll have to tread carefully until he's gone or otherwise distracted.

From: [personal profile] screwloose
Oh, I get it. Like a foster brother, but not that you grew up together?

Good luck, then. I'd keep a close eye on her, for sure. I wonder why she'd have such a strong reaction to a single person.

Date: 2010-11-04 01:53 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Essentially, yes.

I'm not sure, really. None of the other dolls ever reacted as she does, nor does it make sense for one person to be able to cause this.

I see!

Well, there's got to be a good reason.

From: [identity profile]
I imagine there must be. Though why the Earl is the trigger is beyond me. If it's some 'power of love' nonsense I may vomit.

Date: 2010-11-07 06:49 pm (UTC)
screwloose: (LOL)
From: [personal profile] screwloose
It looks a little like she's in love with him.

They've only seen each other twice. For about thirty seconds each time. That said, I won't discount the idea, but if it's true I may scream.

From: [personal profile] screwloose
Hmm... twice since she died, or was one of those times before she was killed? Maybe she's met him more times than you think?

Twice since she's died, and since either Cassian or myself is with her throughout the day, I doubt there've been any other times. And I doubt the Earl knows her since before her death, since he did not seem to recognize her.

screwloose: (Oh LOL No)
From: [personal profile] screwloose
Love at first sight then, maybe.

I really, truly hope not.

If this Earl Cain is going to be such a nuisance, why not simply kill him?

Date: 2010-11-02 11:44 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Unfortunately, he' off-limits. He's the Cardmaster's son, and the Cardmaster's made it clear he won't allow any of us to kill him.

From: [identity profile]
How irritatingly political. And I suppose you can't cross this Cardmaster.

Date: 2010-11-02 01:15 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
No, since he's our leader. I would much rather not deal with whatever consequences he would dole out for that.

Date: 2010-11-02 04:29 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Dear me, even worse if you were to get caught.

Date: 2010-11-03 01:42 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Indeed. I have no desire to endure that; for now, I'll simply have to keep ahead of Earl Cain. Which, considering his complete lack of subtlety, shouldn't be too hard.

Date: 2010-11-03 01:43 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Well, I look forward to perhaps hearing more about that. Interesting about the girl. Loath as I am to ever agree with Stein, he makes a good point there about her.

Date: 2010-11-03 05:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I do plan on keeping an eye on her, given her extreme change in behavior. At times she goes back to how she was before, so it remains unclear if she will regain her emotions or if this was an isolated incident.

Date: 2010-11-03 06:02 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Very wise. Even if it was unexpected, that isn't necessarily a bad thing, of course. It leaves room for further investigation.

Date: 2010-11-03 07:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
I agree that it certainly merits more investigation. Especially when another person's presence seems to be the trigger for it.
