The stranger took one last barefoot step onto the pathway and finally let go of her long skirt. Her eyes overlooked the town that sprawled before her, with large, almost ruin-like, structures protruding from the ground. Only, they looked fairly new with just minor weathering to them. Her stomach churned a bit with anxiety. What is this place? Where am I? She'd been following this path for quite a bit now, hoping to find something familiar. It's earthly ground reminded her home - she hadn't seen her mother and father in so long - she started to honestly think that fate had brought her back to once more rejoice with the old couple, though it'd been very long. Even with the exilir, who knows if they'd taken it before the human's curse overthrew them? None of that mattered though now, as she realized this was not the village she'd been before. Fate had not done as she had high hopes for, and gave her no reward of information either. Besides, this place was much more ethereal than anything she'd seen before. Kaguya started walking again, but feeling a bit more heavy-hearted and lesser spirited than before. She picked her skirt off the ground a bit and continued on the path before her, being mindful of any rocks that could be laying around ready for the unsuspecting shoeless feet to step upon. Well, now that it had been confirmed that this wasn't exactly in her knowledge, she began to aimlessly wander towards the bridge that went over the canyon. The girl stopped to look over the railing and once more her stomach curned. "S-so far down..." she murmured underneath her breath, shaking a bit as she carefully crossed to the other side in a hurried manner. With twiddling fingers, she begun to look around. The area didn't seem familiar, the sounds much the same in that way, and likely the other people would not ring any bells to her. Wait- others? Maybe there was someone around who knew something! Kaguya was beginning to lose ideas on what to do - so this was the last thing - find someone to question.

The Queen of Hearts was riding soundly in her black ,red, and white painted carriage. The Card men, who had red heart Cards for bodies and faces like actual men ontop were esscorting her to a far off land. She had some business there. An appointment if you will. Usually the young Queen found the idea of traveling sickening. But her advisor, Heart Man Number 2- whose body was in the shape of a heart and a man's face plucked ontop- had made a sound argument. She should try and get out more. See the peaceful country side in which her people call 'so beautiful'. It was only her, in all of Heart Country, whose never been past the Royal Heart Gates. Besides, maybe if she left the kingdom, her understanding of the land will grow. As she didn't quite understand what a 'drought' or a 'tree' was in the community. Never having actually seen one for herself, just descriptions. Only what she could eye from her balacony at home, were the things she knew. Her kingdom and the sky. Preferably, the moon and the Stars, at night. So glorious and bright. The young girl sometimes wondered- did the moon have a Heart? Or maybe the Stars were it it's hearts. The subjects it ruled over.. As the young Queen fantasized, she peered out the heart shaped window, they were making their way into a quiet little Town. She was informed that they needed to make a stop here for supplies and things. "Very well. But be hasty, my Hearts." She said softly, usually this would anger her. But she was in a good mood, thinking about the stars always made the Queen feel calm. Up ahead, their was a girl, with long black hair, dressed in beautiful shades of red, with a green shaw. Yet no shoes. The Queen scoffed. Madness was everywhere. She assumed it must've spread everywhere now. From Wonderland to the very edges of existance. No one could escape it. Suddenly she found the anger bubbling up within her. What fine clothes, and no matching shoes? What gracious long hair, and no crown upon her head? Wasn't she royalty? The Queen could spot a fellow royal from a mile away. After all, they dressed so well. It was obvious the girl wasn't from around here. The Queen beckoned the carriage to stop, right as they were passing the girl. The Queen then opened her heart shapped window, her hand fan just over her noes, appearing elegent and calm, she said, "Girl there~!" Her anger exploded within those two simple words "Count yourself Lucky! If you dared, to be in my Country of Hearts, looking as you are~!!"The Queen was leaning out the window now, absolutely bitting off the poor girl's head,"your head would be mine." She said bitterly with a long lipped smile.

The sound of many feet walking over the dirt pathway filled the air with a steady crescendo. It started out barely audible, causing Kaguya to believe that it was just the wind running through the canyon in soft echoes, like the river below was singing a silent melody to itself in the dawn. But it picked up. Perhaps the wind picked up? No, she glanced over her shoulder, momentarily frightened that it could be a youkai of some sort. The village spoke some about those sorts, and hideous oni's. The stories envoked fear. But she hadn't seen anything behind her quite yet, so brushed it off as wind. She realized that her momentary 'maybes' had been correct. It was no singing wind, or the wide bubbling river below, nor rocks falling below making such a sound. The voice picked up and caught her attention, as she'd seen no one else. For a mere moment she felt pleased; excited even to find that someone else was here too, so early, but her prayers had been answered. Red eyes widened as she took a gander at the people made of something other than human or nature's skin. Kaguya couldn't help but stare at them a bit, confused by their appearance and anatomy - she hadn't seen such symbols or shape before in her life upon the earth and on the moon. Could they be the fabled youkai's? Her lip was bit as she held back any sound of fear for the creatures. Hesitantly, however, she took her gaze away from the strange sentient beings and looked back at the woman who spoke knives to her. The princess let go of her lip and gave a rather hurt but baffled expression in response to the woman before her who sat in the safety of her carriage. It was if she were a cowardly samurai whose tongue was his sword. The impression wasn't very good. Her clothes seemed strange as well. Kaguya had seen many peculiar things in her life - some she considered so, other's she knew that someone else would - but she hadn't quite caught something as perplexing as this bunch of strangers before. The moon princess was somewhat certain that she had a rather Western touch to her, but couldn't quite be sure about it. The foreigners didn't have these thin beings all about them whnever they visited. "As I am...?" Kaguya inquired in a soft voice as she looked down at her clothing. What did she mean? Her outfit was nothing short of supreme loyalty with the umost femininely touch of beauty. At least, that's what her tailor had said to her. Her head snapped back up and she gave the woman a rather incredulous stare but quickly replaced it with a patient smile, realizing that she must be a queen of her foreign country; therefore her attitude and manner of speaking was rather explained. Kaguya gave a slight bow to her. "I'm happy to have luck and not be ridden of my head," The princess spoke in an unsure way. She should've had questions ready for this, but the situation came rather quickly upon her and she couldn't help but be a bit overwhelmed - by the woman's growling voice and the peculiar youkai's that surrounded her in a mellow way. She wasn't likely to be the best one to ask. Kaguya feared for her neck and had no intentions on becoming like a nukekubi today.

A young girl stops on a narrow road that was attached to the mountain, looking at a aerial view of the town. Rapunzel was excited but exhausted from her journey, far away from the tower she was kept in for many years. She was happy she escaped but on the downside, dragging 70 feet of hair wasn't on her list of "fun". She sat down taking a rest and placed he head in her hands listening to the sounds of nature that surrounded her. She looked over to the side seeing the trail of hair left following behind her, sighed and looked back at the town. Around 30 minutes passes and she gets back up onto her feet and starts her way down the mountain. Rapunzel walked down, slowing gaining speed, soon having to stop herself before she fell off the road. Whew~! she thought, setting her arms on her knees, collecting her breathe again. In no time she found herself at the entrance of the town, congratulating herself for making it. In the corner of her eye she saw a carriage, with a woman in red inside it. She hid behind a rock watching what was happening She must be important she thought, making such demands.

A hyper princess rode over the mountains with her horse. She stopped at the top of the moutain with a wide grin on her face. She looked around then spotted a village down at the bottom of the mountain. Oh, how fun. This should be a good trip. Meet new people, have new experiences. "This should be interestin'," she exclaimed, her Scottish accent thick. She laughed to herself, petting her horse and adjusting the bow that was slung across her body. "Come on, Angus! We have adventuring to do!" she declared. The girl with the bright orange hair dug her heels in each side of her horse and he darted forward on the path down the mountain. A couple of hours later she finally reached the bottom of the mountain. "Oo~" shed mused with a small laugh. "What do you think Angus?" she asked, excited. She saw quite a few of new people. She hopped off her horse and took him by his reigns, giving him to one of the stable boys that watched over other horses. She paid the boy and thanked him as she walked off to see other things. Everything interested her. There were cool little knick knacks and other things she couldn't even think of! The place really blew her mind. Yeah, there were things like this in the kingdom, but this was new stuff! Foreign stuff that she had never seen before! She giggled to herself and stopped as she spotted a pretty necklace. But she already told herself that she wasn't going to buy anything yet. She had to stay for at least a day to see everything before she bought anything.

This girl.. She bowed. Graciously to the Queen. The Red Queen clipped her fan closed, revealing her doll like face and small blood colored lips. It was surprising that one- so delicate looking could have such a crude voice within it.' hmm.. ' The Queen thought. It seems the girl atleast had enough smarts to talk polietly and bow in the manner she did. Otherwise, she would've commanded the Card Men to take her head. Whether she was in her Country or not- people will always be punished for their folly in her pressence. "Ahem.." The young girl began, her voice becoming more leveled and soft. Her sudden burst of anger seemed to crawl back into it's cage. "Yes.. As you are." "In my kingdom- Any shade of Red, Is a sacred color. So anyone who wears it so pronounced.. As you do today. Should be looking absoultely flawless. Because the color repersents my Kingdom." The Queen paused, as her large doll like eyes looked the girl over again. "Yet, i see nothing but." The Queen added matter-of-factly. "Tell me girl- Where are your shoes? Your crown? An escort? Your Carriage? Do you not jest?" The Queen questioned harshly; each word dripped with animosity. For wearing the Royal color of Hearts wasn't something the young Queen could simply overlook. Not when it carried the weight of her entire legacy. Thus- if the answer did not satasfy her majesty, the girl would loose more then her head. She'd also make sure, that she was stripped of her clothing, and her headless corpse, strewn into the lake under the bridge. ooc: I wouldn't mind. I'm usually on alot. But If anyone's worried about being left behind, sure.. :T

Kaguya gave a sideways glance. The structures built into the walls of the bluffs seemed so far away now. As the Queen had spoken to her, she was progressively feeling more and more threatened. Although her tone had changed to a sweeter tune for a mere moment, which was better than none, she was quick to jump back into sharp tongues. These people... were always fickle; hard to tell what they wanted, and whne you could it was blatantly obvious but a challenge to actually put your honour down to abid to it. The princess gave a baffled expression, more confused than ever, as she gained the explaination upon her hues. She couldn't help but look down at her skirt to see the red, wondering if it was the same colour they were talking about. Oh, how she wish she had the Westerner's tone. She couldn't possible act a way she wasn't raised, but she felt like she was being stripped a bit from whatever dignity she had. Kaguya gave a very slight frown, but gave a soft sigh that sounded a bit more overwhelmed than actually bothered or annoyed, though she'd love to make a groan like that. It'd be unfitting for the princess of the moon. "Your highness," She began, feeling a bit disheveled by having to stoop down to accomodate to the woman in her carriage, "My apologies, but I'm afraid this is but a misunderstanding. This is the first I've heard of your country - I am not from there or near," The Japanese girl gave a quick look around, then started again, her voice filled with a half-hearted tone of loss, "Nor from here either, I feel. Rather, hopelessly lost..." The end was in a whipser. Red eyes looked back up at the porcelain face of the lady in red once more. The woman didn't seem to ease anymore than before, maybe even further furious - for the girl was bearing her colours and apparently inappropriately so. She didn't seem as so kind to be merciful of any lost lambs before she had the satisfaction of their innocent punishments. She had to come up with something. "I pray for your pardon today, though I have done a disgrace to you and your sacred colours. It was not ill-willed at all to your country or yourself, but a mere accident," The last of her words came as she bowed her head a bit, and put one hand over the other upon her lap. She had the highest of hopes now; to be freed from the situation at hand. Perhaps the Queen of Red would be humble and give her the benefit of the doubt upon the stranger, but as things had been the way they are now, the more it went on, the less likely of a chance she felt she had in keeping her head on. The matter was rather frightening itself. Never before had she been so threatened, even back in her time of coexisting with the other humans - all treated her so nicely, not even one woman was malicious towards her. But this woman, who had just came suddenly by carriage and met her once, was appearingly ready to rid of her at any second. This wasn't good. OOC: I guess so?????? i feel like that'd be more necessary once or when all the characters are mingling as a group rather than seperately as it is---

Rapunzel was confused with the situation, telling herself not to get involved. She twirled her hair into a ball and picked it up, holding it in her arms. She turned her head seeing the young girl on her steed looking around the town. Huh? it would seem that just about everyone has something to do with the color red. The only thing Rapunzel had on her that was red was a rose she picked up on the way. The rose caught her attention because looking at it closely you would be able to see the original color was white. Almost like someone had painted each petal. She placed the rose back behind her ear can looked back at the carriage. Her hair slipped from her arms catching around her ankle tripping her onto her side. She sat up quickly realizing she had broken her cover. Collecting her hair she looked around to see if anyone had noticed her fall.

 The energetic, Sottish girl walked around merrily. Then saw someone bowing to another.
Maybe she was the Queen of another Kingdom! That would be cool. Though, she didn't look
friendly, so she probably shouldn't so anything. Just stay back. She knew when not to get
involved. She walked the opposite way, but turned to look over her shoulder. But it looked
so interesting! She wanted to see what was going on, but she fought the urge. Instead, she
bought an apple. She didn't know how it would help, but she did it anyway. Oh darn! She
accidentally bought something on her first day. Well, it was food, so that's okay, right?
She did bring food, but she left it with Angus, knowing he could watch over it. But it
wouldn't hurt to buy an apple...why was she debating about the apple anyway? She laughed
to herself. She was so weird sometimes, but she didn't mind.
 The princess pushed some of her curls out of her face before taking a bite into the
apple. After all, she dind't want to accidentally eat hair or something gross like that.

But for the poor Moon Princess, the situation would get much worse before it got better. "You've never heard of my kingdom..." The Queen said, her tone becoming heavily sombered. The prospect of her great Kingdom's name lost by people- anywhere, was unacceptable. Her mother and Father would never have let that happen. It must've been that blasted Alice girl. She made her Kingdom known around the realm as the sickest and madest place around. They're tourist rate dropped, no one seemed to leave the kingdom anymore, and intereactions with other kingdoms- deals, treaties, support, all turned to ashes. All because some lolly loopsy, blonde locked girl dare say, 'This Kingdom is Mad!' "That's unnacceptable~!!" The doll screamed, almost falling out the window, until her card men pulled her back, then whispered into her ear. A young girl is watching us from a far. A spy. This Mountain town was full of filthy minded creatures. How dare someone spy on the Queen and her good Cards men upon her journey. Suddenly the Queen's attention was brought back to the shoeless girl. "You say..That your lost.. Do you?" The black eyes suddenly became softer, and her lips curved into a sympathetic smile. "Why, that's not acceptable either. Accident or not- your wearing my colors proudly through the streets." The young Queen sat quietly for a moment, seeming to be in deep thought. "Come, i'll take you home. In return- you can tell me all about this place- you call home." The Queen said cheery eyed, as she opened her carriage door, to reveal a very organized, pink luxury place. With a small table. two small windows on both sides, and in the back of the carriage. There was a small white table for tea and small possessions like books, towels, and cakes to sit on. The cushions looked soft and were made of silk from an indian country called Acraba. The king Aladdin had also sold her an arab rug, which was pink, white, and red, which set as the carpet in the carriage. It was easily a better way to travel then walking, and had royalty stamped all over it. Not to mention the heart shapes that were dangling everywhere inside. Practically everything was heartshapped. "Oh, and Cards men.. Do tell me if you see that spy again in the village. I would like to talk to her as well. Spying is treason, and treason is a crime against your Queen." The Cards men had no objections. They simply grunted in acceptance. The Queen looked back at the girl, "Well come in- I'm curious about this place you hail from." ooc: Sounds fine to me. Yay! i'm first :P

Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! Kaguya nearly clapsed her hands around her neck, fearsome that the woman would have readied a sword of sorts to slash across her neck. Her face seemed so angry by the statement. She was beginning to question to sanity of this red cladded lady, who continued to scream words of knives. Of course, she was rather amusingly quirky in comparison to many Kaguya had met, but her brash and force was less than fun to deal with when your head was the one being a threat to disappear. She almost fell out of the cart... The princess was far from confused - she was absolutely befuddled by the predicament. It was a silly display, yes, but a woman of blood was not to be scorned without preparation. Finally, the skywards princess loosened up a bit, relieved to hear her speak without poison yet again, even though it was sudden, and sudden wasn't exactly the epitome of comfortable. But it was certainly a step in the right direction. She gave the woman a charmingly innocent smile. Ah? She was inviting her into her coach? Something seemed peculiar about the scenario that she was being presented to about now - perhaps dealing with the fact she threatened for her head to be here's and now suddenly decided to take a merry carriage-ride by youkai's to have, seemingly, a very harmless 'chit-chat' setting. It didn't sit right. What were some other options? The Queen would be simply infuriated if the offer was declined, even if Kaguya spoke with a soft and grateful voice. She'd already admitted to being lost and couldn't use an excuse such as 'I must be somewhere now'; the lie would be detected in an instance! Yet, remaining with this Queen with a thirst of blood, her chances of death probably went up by tenfold. What options were there left? Not like there was a destination - and the best answers could be here. Perhaps it was fate! Though the gods did play quite a ruse in making it seem naught of such a chance. Kaguya gave a bow once more, too worried about her future to catch much wave of this "spy"; fear was more dominating than sight. "Pardon my intrusion," She said softly, feeling defeated now, but hopefuly for help if the wolf in sheep skin could provide even a bit of. She picked up her long skirt and made careful footing into the carriage, wary of snagging the hems or frills on anything. The clothing wasn't fit for the sharp projections of a Westerner's transportation, but she'd have to mind not about it. Sitting opposite of the porcelain woman, she took a nervous look around but seemed to keep much of herself from touching more than necessary. A disgrace - already proven - shouldn't taint. How embarrassing, she blushed. Her red eyes came back to the Queen, and smiled lightly. "Thank you... This carriage is very regal - perfectly fitting," There was a sincere tone of awe in her voice as she gave one last glance about the interior decor. Then there was a pause as she kind of looked out at the sky for a moment, followed by a quiet sigh, nearly inaudible. "If it were dark enough, I could point at it," Kaguya seemed to whisper but smiled. "The moon is my home. I'm afraid I'm not sure how I got here, that being said... It's been a very long time since I've been - here, per se. You said you're of the Country of Hearts? Though I've never heard, I'd enjoy to learn of your rulings," She smiled, hoping to make a good impression over her.

Rapunzel picked herself up and patted the dirt off her dress. In her mind she repetitively scolded herself until something broke her concentration. She faced the carriage to see that there was no longer anyone beyond it. Rapping her hair around her arms, Rapunzel pulled herself back behind the rock and stood still. Braiding her hair seemed to reduce the size quite a bit, making her wonder why she doesn't do it all the time. Cupping her growling stomach, thoughts went through her head, What am I suppose to do now. I have no place to stay and nothing to eat. The rock was cold and jagged as she slid down it placing her legs beneath her. Here I sleep, with no where to go.. The night consumes her, slowing sending her to the dream realm. Happy dreams flowed through her mind, Tomorrow will be better, it always is.
