The CAP: More redecorating
by C. A. Jackie
Jackie surveyed the bits of debris and clutter piled throughout her suite. Taking over
the vacant rooms next door was an inspired idea she thought. It gave her plenty of room
for the additions she had planned. Lets see
the huge hot tub, expanding her
bedroom area, that special room in the back with the wall attachments
Jackie paused in her daydreams to watch a burly worker carry out a section of what use to
be the dividing wall. She had to admit that the workers from the village were doing a
great job. Since pulling them away from other, less important, jobs around campus, the
work on her suite had progressed nicely. Perhaps when they were finished shed invite
them to take a break with her in the new hot tub. She grinned, it was certainly big enough
to hold them all. It had been awhile since she had debauched, and as Acting Chancellor, it
was her duty to set an example for the students. There was nothing she wouldnt do
for her university.
The door banged open as Manto rushed in followed by an exhausted looking Feonix carrying
blueprints. Manto managed to pause long enough to give a seductive look at one of the
Mom! Leave my workers alone! Dont you have enough men? Manto rolled her
eyes to show her daughter how foolish that statement was. Jackie, I think you need
to take some of my classes over. At this rate youll be single forever.
Before an argument could ensue, Feonix called their attention to the blueprints he had
spread out over Jackies table. Manto showed her plans to Jackie, What do you
think of this? Too much?
No, Jackie said, I think the potted plants are a good touch. Moving from
your bushes to your suite is a big step. The plants will make your guests feel
right at home. And I like the way they separate the bedroom from the outer area.
They went on to discuss the various additions to Mantos suite. Whats
this change? Jackie questioned. Umm, thats just a useless door I want
taken out. Manto hedged. Studying the plans, Jackie realized which door it was.
Mother. You are not taking out the door between Paladins room and
yours! Why not? Its always open anyway. Besides, I want him as my second
assistant itll make it easier for him to
I dont even have one assistant yet and you want not only two, but
two HUNTERS? fumed Jackie. Manto made an attempt to calm her daughter, Pal is
off travelling again, so its a mute point right now.
Feonix again interrupted a burgeoning argument. He had been poking around Jackies
suite, curious about what changes she had planned. Whats that small room at
the back for? Er
its going to be my storage room Jackie
answered. Why does it need soundproofing? Feonix asked.
Jackie evaded the question by pushing Manto and Feonix outside to the hall. The workers
had resumed banging on the wall and it was hard to hear. Ignoring Feonixs question,
Jackie gave her mother a quick hug and told her that she would send the workers over
to start on her room after they had completed everything she needed them to. Jackie went
to get the workers some lemonade as Manto and Feonix left.
Manto seemed lost in thought, Feonix? Ive had you assisting me day
and night. I think you need a rest. Why dont you relax for a bit in your room?
Ill let you know when I need you again. With a halfhearted protest, Feonix
turned towards his room. Perhaps a quick nap would restore his strength. He never realized
how taxing a CAAs job was.
Manto headed in the opposite direction. Maybe a quick visit with Ares was in order. Jackie
and Calee had already gotten his promise of help, but it couldnt hurt to
convince him some more
