The CAP: The Getting of Ares, pt. 1
Jackie and her dog companions, Heidi and Gingersnap, used the secret exit from
Jackies Chancellor Assistant suite to escape detection as they left the CA Wing.
Deceit was a necessity this early in the plan. If caught, Jackie would probably be locked
up in Sals Detox again. The memories of her last stay in the Old CA wing
of that place made her cringe. But no
they wouldnt be caught, they were too
Outside the building all was quiet, well as quiet as it gets at DebU. Several dark figures
were seen scurrying from place to place. Jackie grinned as she recognized several as her
co-plotters, she knew what they were up to. Waving to Cass, Jackie wondered what strategy
the other CA was going to use on her chosen mark.
The threesome managed to reach the relative safety of the forest without running into
anyone else. Jackie, Heidi and Ginger began to follow a tiny, almost hidden path through
the trees. No light was needed as they had followed this path many times.
A veteran of these midnight secret trips, Heidi was as silent as her human. Ginger
however, had much to learn in the ways of stealth. The young puppy had not been at DebU
for long. So far, Ginger thought, she liked her new home. The humans were somewhat
strange, as were their animals. Heidi was helping her make friends though, and all the
humans were very nice. Even that strange Wb, who didnt smell like a
human, but more like a pig. ? All in all, DebU wasnt so bad.
Lost in puppy thoughts, Ginger failed to see the branch until she tripped over it. CRASH!
Jackie sighed and kept going. Heidi looked back briefly and gave her young friend a
warning look. It didnt last very long though, Ginger had learned that Im
so sorry, broken hearted puppy look well. Even Heidi wasnt immune to it.
Geesh, thought Heidi as they continued walking, was I ever that
Heidi made a mental note to enroll Ginger in the class Using stealth when sneaking
around with your human. The humans hadnt yet realized that while they were
busy with their university activities, their pets held classes of their own.
Some of the most popular were, How to charm your humans romantic interest and
the aforementioned Stealth class. Heidi was proud to teach the Stealth class since Lucky
had moved on to teach Analyzing your Human.
The three friends finally approached the temple of Ares. Heidi knew this place well, her
human spent many many nighttime (and daytime) hours serving in Ares temple.
Boy her human was one devoted follower. Heidi was usually left outside during these
excursions, but she didnt mind. There were so many interesting smells to keep her
occupied in the surrounding forest. Sniffing, she was glad to find that Ares dog Greygus
wasnt with his master tonight. Like her human, Heidi liked the bad dogs,
but Greygus was a bit more bad than she liked, plus he had disgusting eating habits. Heidi
almost gagged when she remembered his last romantic offering...a gift from the closest
With anticipation of the coming encounter Jackie reached to pull open the heavy temple
door. Unable to open it she discovered the door was locked. Locked? It was never locked to
her! Knocking loudly, she shouted for Ares. Jackie fumed as she wondered if he was
entertaining some other deb. If some other CA had
she had dibs
With a click the heavy black door swung open allowing Jackie, Heidi and Ginger entrance...
