    Eva smiled at her. "We aren't all old, but we aren't all young either. I try to keep my writing very limited lately, because of my last disaster, but...but this place is just write for my coming back into the novelization world." She smiled, almost grinning. "Star Wars eh?" she laughed. "I remember seeing them all in the Theater, when the world was simpler."

    "You seem young, if you don't mind me saying so. I'm sorry to hear about your last book, hopefully your next will be a big success."

    I sigh. "I don't think life has ever been simple for me. I did have the films sent over by curier a while back though, we still have them and I'm sure we could watch them in the theatre here."

    I bite my tongue, "I'm not making sense, am I?"

    Eva smiled. "No one makes sense lately. I don't even know why I'm here." She glanced around. She looked around. "What do you exactly do Jennifer?" she asked.

    A corporate helicopter, escorted by four Navy copters, approaches the landing strip from the east...
    Pilot: We're about to land, Mr. Ducard.
    IC
    About time, too. Damned meetings always running late when the Military Oversight Commission is involved. At least the contract is still ours. Now for some rest and relaxation.

    As the coropate chopper lands, the four others circle above for a moment before heading back to the carrier group, on their way to test his new weapons systems in the South Pacific.

    After refueling, head back to the carrier and see to it that the tests run smoothly. Then, send a report to the West Coast office and await pickup instructions. I'll call when I'm ready to leave. I've been looking forward to this for a long time.

    As he heads up to the mansion, he thinks about his good friend who died all those years ago, knowing it should have been him, but he's here to make peace with his past. 'Must not think about that night,' he murmurs to himself, 'otherwise the dreams will come back.'
    Just the thought of it sends shivers up his spine.
    Shaking it off, he continues to the estate, heads to his room, and takes a long needed shower (and drink) before heading downstairs to the party.


    heads downstairs towards the gathering of rich snobs :p

    "I work here, I keep the computers network and systems going." I sigh happily, "sometimes I think I'm too good though, things rarely go wrong, usually pecaks. When things go very wrong it's fun, I like that."

    "I think we should maybe find somewhere to sit, my legs are starting to ache."

    "ok, it's not that far." I lead the way, not know what to say. I keep glancing at Eva, just to make sure she's still with me. When we get to the pool I take off the towel and place it on a sun lounger. I get my box and pull out some sunglasses, put them on, and then lie down.

    I smile at Eva, "untill you find out why you came, you should relax and have fun, there's no press here so whatever happens can stay here."

    Aislynn giggled as they arrived at the pool. She had to agree that men tended to have very one tracked minds. Stopping near a sunning chair, Aislynn untied her wrap and let it drop to the chair, then she slowly made her way over to the diving board. Her hips swayed as she walked out to the edge of the board, jumped and did a swan dive, the butterfly wings gracefully fluttering before she glided underneath the water and swam towards the other end.

    He is so distracted that he can't really make any comments for a few minutes. Then taking off his smoking jacket he proceeds to jump in with a splash. "Your quite right Aislynn, the water is fine."

    And with that he goes to swim a lap real quick while the others adjust to the water, and then returned.

    Tag people with me, and other pool people

    Eva nodded. She slipped her sunglasses on and took her hair out of the position it was in to have it down. "I might even go into the pool." She said. She looked at her watch. "Interesting how rich people can get and be snobby at the same time." She said getting up for a minute. She wasnt stupid. She took her light jacket off, to reveal her bathing suit. She slipped into the pool. "I might even have fun" she said laughing.

    Donavan looked at Eva swim gracefully in the pool. He put down the GQ magazine that he had been reading poolside. He got out of his chair and sat ono the edge of the pool.

    "Hello Eva, it's been awhile."

    Mars sighted the Ducard man descending down the tiny mountain which the main house sat atop.

    "Hullo, Ducard..." He mused to himself, not intending for the man to hear.

    as he cautiously makes his way down the stone steps, drink in hand, he spots young Madding watching him.

    "If only I knew the real reason I was asked here," he mused to himself, looking back down at Mars.

    Can the formalities, Ducard.

    Finally someone I know... at least by name...

    Ducard was the head of DI, Ducard International... currently they were stirring up much controversy in the media with rumors of their "experiments" on the high seas of the Pacific... this island was in the Pacific, as well, not far from the Midway Islands, truth be told.

    "There's nothing but useless suck-ups down there, Nicholae. Come, let's go to my study."

    I smile to myself and ge my box, from which I pull a GBA SP with the game 'Boktai' allready plugged in. I get out my headphones and plug them in before turning it. I grin as it says 'Botktai, the sun is in your hands' though no one else can hear it. It's not long before I'm engrossed in it.

    Donovan lets his feet dangle in the pool.

    "Well I wouldnt call it fun. There is a lot more to running an ecscort service than people realize. When you deal with the kind of people I do, it takes alot to makes sure it stays quiet."

    "But enough about me. How have you been. When is that next novel coming out?"

    Eva looked at him. "I wouldn't know. I've never been one." She said winking at him. She heard the mention of the word Novel. "Yeah, that. I need inspiration. It was suppose to be a romance novel. But I am having a very hard time finding inspiration to write one." She swam about. "Any suggestions?"

    "Well romance is my one of the things I specialize in. Perhaps I can give you some "inspiration" while we're here."

    Donovan gives a sly grin.

    "By the way do you know anything about this place or the host? I have never heard of either of them until I got the invite. And to be honest I feel a little out of place."

    He could feel the animosity dripping from the words. He didn't blame him, knowing that Mars had blamed him for the death of his father, and how his research was eerily similar to that of the elder Maddings. Perhaps he could find some way to get him to open up.

    Your father was a great man, Mars. One day he will be recognized for his scientific prowess, and given his proper due by society. Most of my own work is based on his... if only he could have survived, we might have even been partners.

    So, how does it feel to be heading up such a large corporation?

    Eva smiled. "Maybe you can."

    Eva looked at the water. "I knew his father. Quite well. Only reason I came was to get out of Berlin to be honest." She looked around. "I might go back go stroll around the place again. The pool is boring."

    "Not well at all, really. One thing's for sure... I won't be taking any private-jet flights straight outta California over the Pacific, as my father did... worst corporate error of his life..." Mars said.

    They reached the mainhouse and climbed three flights of stairs until coming to the study that used to be his father's. This study was, besides the command station down in the basement, basically the nervous system of the entire island... all roads lead to Rome...

    his father used to say

    "All roads lead to this study."

    *sitting down in the leather chair behind the huge, antique desk, he looked up at Ducard.

    "What do you think?" Mars said, opening some shutters to let light in.

    The 'study' was rather large, with several tall bookshelves, filled with volumes of material. Most impressive though was the floor, which was a work of art in itself, marble with intricate designs, almost as if the elder had stumbled upon some ancient knowledge that had been long hidden.

    Very nice, indeed. Your father had quite the collection and was very fond of reading. Soothed his mind, he told me once. Said there was no such thing as too much knowledge.

    traces his fingers along the rim of his glass, thinking of the last time he saw him, knowing what happened on the jet...

    So, why ask me to be here? I was under the impression you weren't very fond of me even before the accident.
