I almost didn't make the walk. I've modeled for Sysperia and Zoe in the studio before..but never did the runway. And otherworldly concerns kept me away until the last minute.
But I saw the faces of hopeful friends in the audience at Breaking the Mold..I slipped behind the stage and prepared.
We were all encouraging each other. I paid special attention to Nux, self-conscious of being the only male construct in the presentation.
I thought I was almost forgotten..others had gone twice while I still waited in my velvet dress, crashing yet again, fumbling to switch silver for copper and tugging the necklace free from my gears.
But then I was called out. I took slow methodical steps like a bride to the altar. I curtsied to each side as they gasped and cheered. Miss Vavoom cried "Showstopper!"
After the show I danced a bit with Darkling and Kiralette. I finally got the answers I needed. Now we must formulate a solution.
Next to Caledon..an attempted business discussion with a highly distracted Guvna Shang. Hopeful enough.
Then an all-too-short tour of the Wormser estate and Sir Zen's Malthusian goldfish. Disturbing similarities.
Today I attend the reception for Baroness Amber and Mr. Book! If only Father had a tuxedo to go with his Cerebral Preservation Droid..
