Narrator: The three moons of Hereva were in alignment that night, and their reflected light caused quite a spectacle in the Zombiah cathedral.. It was under this magical light that Coriander, my friend, became.... Queen of Qualicity..
Narrator: The festivities began soon after.. A giant party with all of the magic schools and hundreds of prestigious guests from all over Hereva.. Pepper: !?.
Pepper: Oh! It's you!. Carrot: rub rub. Pepper: I was deep in my own thoughts.. I'm going inside. It's getting cold out here.. Journalist: Quick! It's her!. Hurry! She's here!. Miss Saffron! Can you say a few words for the Qualicity Daily?. Saffron: Yes, of course!. Sound: FLASH. FLASH. FLASH. FLASH. Journalist: Miss Saffron! Hereva Style Gazette. Which designer are you wearing tonight?. Pepper: .... You see, Carrot? I think I understand why I'm not in the mood..
Pepper: All my friends are so successful and sometimes I wish I had just a fraction of what they have.. Coriander is a queen.. Saffron is a rich superstar.. Even Shichimi looks so perfect with her school.. And me? What do I have?. This..
Shichimi: Pepper?. I snuck out some food. Do you want any?.
Shichimi: It feels weird that I have to sneak around to eat any food. But our teacher tells us we must look like pure spirits with no basic human needs.. Saffron: Ha! There you are!. Finally! Somewhere I can go to get away from the photographers. They drive me crazy.. Coriander: Photographers?. Try avoiding boring discussions with politicians when you have this thing on your head.. Sound: scratch scratch.
Coriander: By the way, Pepper, I finally met your godmothers. They really are “special”.. Pepper: !!!. Coriander: I mean, you are so lucky. I'm sure they let you do whatever you want.. Like, defying this useless posturing and banter without worrying about diplomacy.. Saffron: Or dancing and having fun without caring what people might think.. Shichimi: Or tasting all the food at the buffet without fearing that someone will see you!.
Shichimi: Oh! Pepper!? Did we say something to upset you?. Pepper: Not at all! Thank you, my friends!. Narrator: TO BE CONTINUED....
