The CAP: Things to do and dinars to spend
As she walked through the quad, Calee contemplated what her newfound "power"
could do for her. A new chariot? Nah. How about a LifeTime Membership to the Dessert of
the Month Club? Nah, that was out too. Then it hit her. 'I can have my suite redecorated!'
She thought to herself.
Walking past an open alley she spotted Lambda semi hiding and peeking around the corner.
Wondering what she was up to Calee quietly walked up behind her and peered over her
"Whatcha lookin at Lambda?" she whispered.
Lambda whirled around eyes wide and in an almost deep voice gasped. "Don't do
that!" then, in a more "normal" tone of voice, "I mean, you scared me
half to death!"
Patting her shoulder, Calee tried to sooth her. "I'm so sorry, I didn't realize you
were so jumpy! But, if you aren't busy I could use some help."
Eyeing her suspiciously, Lambda wondered if there was any way out of this without getting
herself into trouble. "Help with what exactly?"
"Oh, nothing too strenuous, just some help shopping and picking out patterns for my
suite. I'm going to redecorate and need another woman's opinion."
"Decorating? I'm no good at stuff like that. I'm sure someone else would be a better
choice." Lambda said while trying to back away.
"Nonsense, I'm sure you'll do just fine!" the A.C. said as she linked arms with
Lambda. "You can help me find great bargains..." Chattering away Calee led

"Now, I want to turn this place into a
well, I don't know exactly what to call
it. I want it to be
seductive." Calee said with a sigh, looking around at the
piles of fabric, statues and other new items she had just purchased.
"Did you even look at how much this stuff cost?" Lambda said with her mouth
hanging open. "Why this could pay the candle bill for the next 3 months
" She realized what she was saying and stopped mid sentence.
"Now Lambda dear, don't worry your
uh, pretty little head about stuff like that.
You leave that to us Acting Chancellors." Calee said as she
picked up a bolt of material.
"Why, so you can all run this place into the ground?" she mumbled under her
"What was that dear?"
"Uh, I said that is a lovely shade of brown. It would make a lovely
yes, it would make a lovely dress."
"You know, I think you're right. Why don't you take off that, um..nice dress you're
wearing and I'll drape this on you. Maybe we can make you
something from it."
"HUH?" Lambda said while holding her dress tightly. "Take it off? Here? In
front of YOU?"
"Well, it IS just us girls here. There isn't a Hunter in
unfortunately." Calee said as she watched the girl's eyes dart around the
room. "You aren't shy are you?"
Thinking of how she was going to get out of this one Lambda darted towards the door.
"I just remembered
I have a previous engagement that I have to get to RIGHT NOW!
Actually, I'm very late." And with that she ran from the room slamming the door
"What a strange girl." Calee said to the empty room. "Oh well, I guess I
can finish this myself, now that Lambda carried everything up here for me. She sure is
strong...even for an Amazon."
