Walking through the town on his day off from the Inn, Junbei decided to do some sight seeing within the town. His abrupt arrival in Mock Town wasn’t exactly. He want to his usual spot, a fountain located in the heart of Mock Town where many a tourist, town person and marine would police. It was the one area of town where the pirates stayed clear of, a oasis within a desert of crime. "Time to make some extra cash. Gishishi Gishishi." Junbei said laughing to himself as he reached into his suitcase to reveal a guitar which he'd commandeered from a nearby store. Leaving the case open, Junbei began strumming against the guitar's majestic make, slick oak, coated in a shiny plastic like wax. Singing the first few words of a song he'd been working on for so very long, he used this opportunity to work on composing his new piece. It was the finishing touches actually, perfect time and place to cause a little havoc. After strumming a few more times, Junbei reached into his case, revealing a pen and a piece of paper, ascribing the notes of the song as he advanced along the paper.


Stars across the open seas.
And souls of men will slowly sleep.
Across Across… The Open Blue. To Chase the Bloodied Diamond.
Isabella's Got A Dream...
She Whisper's As You Creep,
Across Across... Paradise. To Chase the Bloodied Diamond. 

Gathering around the fountain, the children and a few mothers returning from their trip, at first glance sat by the fountain, listening to the man's words. It calmed them, setting their soul at peace. This was Junbei's song, no, this was Isabella's lullaby. A song she'd frequently sing to the orphans at the Base #45. Finishing the first line of the score, Junbei noticed the people around him but he was so engrossed at crafting the lullaby, he wasn't bothered by the spectators. The onlookers eyes became drowsy, as they listened to the song, engrossed in the melody. Starting the second line of the score, he alternated the chords of the note progression, trying alternate the overall sound being crafted. It as if he wanted to act a piper, drawing his listeners into the melody's simplicity. It was like abstract art, the music's complexity came in it's simplistic nature of the tune, the complexity lied in the nature of the notes progressing differently, every other line of the almost completing score. Within hours, several members of Mock Town surrounded the fountain, setting up picnics blankets and small circles surrounding the his working process. From the top of the score, Junbei practiced it's contents to completion.

Every day tended to bring a new sight to behold. Every day colors were painted across the world like a detailed painting. Individuality could be seen in everything: the trees, the grass, the flowers, the birds, and even people. Lily's favorite things to ponder over were human beings. She wondered what their thoughts were, she wondered what their lives held, she wondered what kind of stories they had been a part in, she wondered if they noticed how vibrant or dark their colors were, but most of all she wondered if they took advantage of the sight this world had to offer. Lily had come to the conclusion that people relied on their many senses, yet the were blind to their full potential. Sadly for Lily, she had one less sense than all the rest but it opened her mind to the gratitude of having all the others. She had always regretted being so ungrateful as a child. She was out to make a difference, even with her disadvantages. 

She had traveled far and wide. She had traveled through the many blues and taken peeks of wealth. She had lived in impoverished lands and run away from herself. In all honesty, she had literally run away from her past and planted herself within a new town. No pirate crew would accept her because of her huge disability. So, she set up shop in a town that accepted her amazing skills in doctoring the sick, weak, and injured. However, she had wanted more. She had wanted to see more, do spectacular things, and go on daring tasks. She wanted a new family and was determined to become part of a pirate crew. 

Lily had learned of a place where pirates roamed free and held a mighty influence. To this place, Lily would make her most recent journey. It had taken up much of her time but she was ecstatic to arrive. Nothing She didn't wish to find a room, she didn't wish to find a meal, send she certainly didn't wish to take a rest. In this moment, nothing was necessary, except searching the area. She wanted a crew but not just any crew. She wanted to be with someone who stuck out, attracted the masses, and didn't care about their appearance to the world. It had taken but a measly hour before coming across a rather good sized group of individuals. Many were spread out across the ground with food and smiling faces. They seemed so joyful yet so relaxed. The confusion was definitely evident on Lily's face considering people were speaking to her about listening to the music. They spoke about the beautiful melody and asked her what she thought. However, she simply blushed and pointed to the black headphones with the white picture on the side. Before anyone had the chance to ask or comment, Lily would be off to find the source of this "music". 

It had taken but a simple few steps before a boy could be seen near a fountain with flowing water. He had a shining musical instrument within a case that she believed was called a guitar. Of course, things that made noises had never stuck out to her but she liked to feel their vibrations. So without warning, Lily would waltz right up to the boy and try to gentle lay a hand on his instrument. She wondered if she could tell music from vibrations. She wondered if maybe she could feel the beat or figure out the tempo. Although her hand was focused more on the guitar, crystal blue eyes were focused on the face of the individual. He was cute...

The man's focus was broken as the music halted due to a strange girl placing her hand on his guitar. The woman's light coral locks fluttered in the air, blowing the aroma of her hair across his nose. There eyes met, locked in a simple gaze at first but Junbei noticed he was staring so quickly broke the stream like gaze they shared. Her eyes were as vast as the ocean blue, making him experience a kind of calming affect. He noticed one other thing before their gauge broke as well, she also wore headphones around her neck. He smiled, it warmed his heart to know she was also a lover of sounds, an assumption he'd soon come to delete. A flush of wind ushered in, lifting up his papered composition towards the woman's face. Junbei stretched outward to grab it before it hit her, barely managing to grasp at the leaf's edge.

"I can't exactly play if your hand is on my guitar, miss."
Junbei said, in attempts to make conversation with the teen. The townspeople around the fountain were now almost asleep, it was only moments more before they closed there eyes. Times rushed by, minutes and now ten in nature sense he'd stop playing it was a phenomena, over fifty people, families included slept in the towns circle, completely at peace by Junbei's lullaby. "I think I'll call this one Isabella's Lullaby. I wonder if she's looking down worried." the man said smiling in almost a painful manner, his eyes welling with tears which never sprung but were always near when her name came up in conversations.

As her hand was placed upon the musical instrument, she felt that it was quite smooth but it also held no vibration. Blue eyes would wander from the boy's face to his instrumebt, at which point she would realize he had ceased his strumming. Why had he done that? The teen would look from his guitar to his eyes once more. However, something would catch her attention causing her to flinch and close her eyes for just a few moments. Then, they would slowly open to the sight of the male holding a piece of paper within his fingers. Her face would hold a light blush before looking from his face to the paper and back to his face. Looking away for too long was futile to her communication but it felt like the appropriate action to take within this situation. 


As she glimsed between the boy and his surroundings, she would notice his lips begin to move and she would instantly watch them. Of course, her face only grew darker red knowing that he had halted his musical talents because of her ignorance. Her hands would reach up to cover her mouth with only her fingertips. At this point, they would slowly slide to cover fer flaming cheeks. However, the boy seemed to be more distracted with something. The name? No, it wasn't the name that distracted him. He looked a bit hurt. Maybe, this song was for a deceased family member or lover of some sort. Since she couldn't speak to console him, Lily would place her small hand upon his head and pat him twice as she poked out a pouty lip. If there was anything that didn't go well for her, it was consoling the sad...

The woman's pat on his head reminded him of often what Isabella would do to comfort him in times of distress. He smiled up at her, smiling broadly, so much so that the front section of his teeth could be observed. Slightly crooked, partially white but it's physical appearance though imperfect was much more emotionally inviting in it's meaning. Strumming his finger against the strings, the man's eyes closed as he zeroed in on the melody in his head, pricking a few times until he found the right note. He'd always preferred the piano, it had much more character but a guitar was quaint enough for working out the logistics. As played, the pile of sleeping human's increased by a significant amount.

The woman was strange indeed, she didn't appear sleepy or affected by his music at all, it baffled him beyond no end. Not that his intention was to make those around him pass out, it just so happened that his music seemed to have a great emotional and at times physiological affect on others but this time, it was nada. Completing his strumming pattern, he had to know, looking towards the woman who'd remained almost motionless, with a slight puzzled look. It was the same look a child had when achieved his first goal at soccer practice, or the smile on a crew after scoring a new treasure or maybe it was more the look as any walk of life approached a crossword, simply put the woman seemed very intrigued with Junbei.

Collecting the tips that were placed into his guitar, Junbei ceased his playing for the day, placing the guitar immediately back into the case. Turning towards the woman, she'd seem to be traveling alone. Though, she hadn't spoken a word to him as yet, he insisted that she escort him for lunch. "Hey. Would you like something to eat?" the man said, clutching at his stomach from his hunger pains.

She wasn't quite sure what he would take of her attempt at comforting him. However, he seemed to appreciate her efforts as he gave her a rather large smile showing pearly whites. Although she could tell they weren't perfect, she didn't mind. A smile spoke words of wonder to the heart and embracing flaws was very inspirational. Perhaps, he would feel the same about her being deaf. Now that she thought about it, his smile would make her blush some as she smiled back. She loved making others feel so full of joy and feel so comforted. However, soon his eyes would close causing her head to tilt in confusion. What was he doing? Her eyes would wander about his figure, while she attempted to unravel this mystery. Her eyes would the focus in on his moving fingers. What was he playing? Was a guitar a high sound or a low sound? What sound made humans feel so safe and secure? What sounds made them sleepy, or energized, or furious? The girl could only imagine. 

As crystal eyes wandered around, she could only notice the large quantities of sleeping bodies around the area. She wondered if sleeping for them was the same for her. How would they all react if their lives were silent? Would they appreciate sight more? Would they savour mouthwatering tastes? Would they know smells more in depth? What was it like being able to hear? What was it like being able to make beautiful melodies that others could also enjoy? The teen would turn back to the boy as he kept playing, except this time he was watching her. She was interested in him and he seemed to return the same thought. The girl would tilt her head as his hands stopped playing and began to gather things. 

After he had rearranged his belongings, the boy asked for Lily to join him in eating. For a moment, she stood stunned wondering what to say. She had never been offered anything by anyone before. They treated her like a diseased wildlife creature. They treated her like she carried a plague that killed families. Tears seemed to fill her eyes for a moment at the sweet gesture but soon she would wipe her eyes. The tears would disappear as a smile too their place. She would nod her head yes...

Grabbing onto the teenager's hand, Junbei began to pick up pace, his suitcase in the left and her hand in another. He'd remember the times when him and Isabella used to sneak out of Base #45 traveling around the island and sightseeing after days where the experiments were beyond spirit crushing. It was nostalgic in a sense. Entering the downtown shopping district, Junbei popped into ramen shop he'd frequented quite a bit in the city over the past few months. After noticing he was still holding the woman's hand, he pulled away blushing slightly walking over to one of the stools nearest to the chef. "Oi! Can I get two bowls of the daily special!?" Junbei exclaimed.

"Well if it ain't Auburn Fenghuang!? Sure coming right up!" the old chef said playfully reminding Junbei of his epithet. Coming out for useless banter and chit-chat as the noodles cooked, the chef exclaimed, "So Junbei! It's rare to see you around with a woman aside from Charlotte. I wonder if she knows what you've been up to." the man said chuckling with squinting eyes. "That's rude to my guest! No one would want to hang around with that ice queen in his free time-" Junbei said frozen as he looked across the counter, seeing Charlotte sitting eating a bowl of shrimp ramen. "Eh... Then don't let me interrupt your date, Captain." Charlotte said, storming out of the shop puffing out her cheeks. "Oi! She hasn't paid for that meal!" the chef shouted. "I got it." Junbei said checking his wallet sighing.
