Sarah Tintagyl Posted July 7, 2010 Report Share Posted July 7, 2010 Heather Tintagyl stared over the edge of the passenger liner that made way across the Indian Ocean. She had left the port of Cape Town a few days ago, finally leaving from her penthouse apartment in Pretoria, paid for and maintained by the Artemis Corporation, the daughter of one of the most prominent business leaders in the world and possibly the most famous woman on Earth, she was well taken care of. But it was time to throw that all away, after all, there was a greater destiny ahead of her now and this hadn't come in a dream or in a supernatural vision, no this destiny was clear just because of time. It was a destiny of responsibility and growing up, which Heather had yet to do. Her father and mother had never been central to her life, but their exploits and shadows were. Heather had been born out of wedlock, she had watched as her homeland in Australia was torn apart by war and strife, she watched as her mother, left her and she fell into the care of her father. Heather watched as her sister disappeared into the storms of Dranagg and the rumors that Terra Tintagyl was still roaming the world since the collapse of Dranagg, some nameless shadow, Heather would be afraid if she found to meet her. Then after everything that had happened to the Tintagyl family, Sarah, Evan, and their daughter had landed in Transvaal, which after a few years, they had disappeared once again leaving her to their wealth and fame in Transvaal. She had worked as a political aide to one of the big shots in the Transvaaler government and even had the pleasure to meet Annetjie van Matteus in person, but for all that, it wasn't enough for the twenty-two year old woman. Heather dreamed of more, of new horizons, and that was exactly where she was heading. She was a strange combination of her father and mother, Heather had her father's dark eyes and tan skin, she had grown into her mother's hair as well as the Lady Protector's beauty and as the winds blew off the coast onto her hair, her eyes, and calming her face, she smiled, finally she could begin to exceed her parent's expectations. Of all the countries in the world, Girltopia, it had a pull. One because it was attracting so much attention from the international media, realizing that the ruler of the country was a dimwit or a dictator. Heather believed in feminism and all that, but the Girltopians took it to an unhealthy level. Then again...most countries took everything they did to unhealthy levels, it was probably why the world was so $%&@ed up. But two, Heather had watched the young Queen Madison and through the haze, she began to see a little bit of her mother in her as well. It immediately gave Heather an idea. The Hansa had passed, as had her mother's involvement in the world, but for the young Tintagyl and she hoped for the young Madison, a new haven, a truly liberal and free haven could be created. If the Queen was stubborn then Heather could always move on, but as she had thought before, there was a strange draw. "Miss Tintagyl." She turned at the voice behind her, a young sailor with a strong Dutch accent bowed and smiled. "We'll be landing in Rivertown in about a half hour. The Captain wanted to let you know, it was a pleasure having you at dinner last night and that if there are any problems with your disembarking to let him know personally." Being a Tintagyl had its perks. "Thank you." Heather nodded. "But its not a problem, I didn't bring that much anyways, nothing that I can't carry myself I assure you." He bowed again and left the deck as Heather stared out to the new town of Rivertown as the sun began to set. She could already see the buildings beginning to pop up, the beaches across from where she would be docking were filled with people and there was a feeling of hope in the air. "I wonder if this is how Brisbane might have looked...before the various !@#$ storms." Heather smirked, though it was an empty smirk filled with malice. Maybe it was Australia, but she had also inherited Hannah Asgeirsson's extreme cynicism and xenophobia. Arriving in Rivertown, Heather didn't wait around to sight see. She had come with one direct purpose, if that purpose was refused then she could come back and take in the towns and the culture. Plus, given the amount of press that Girltopia got, all she'd have to do is turn on the evening news to learn about the newest problem coming out of the country. "Yeah, Madison is way ahead of mom, she's in the tabloids and she hasn't even slept with anyone yet." Her destination was the capital at Madison, which lay north up the Scar River, running through the Burmese Jungles. She paid the river toll for a ship to take her up north and watched quietly on the top deck of the river steamer at the passing jungles around her. Finally, after a journey up the Scar River, Heather arrived in the Girltopian capital of Madison and proceeded directly to the palace of the Queen and approached one of the girl soldiers at the gates. She couldn't help but chuckle, it was like the Lillian Guard all over again, the All-Female Security Detail of the Lady Protector back in the Commonwealth and was one of the Royal Services of the Queendom. "Excuse me Miss, I apologize for bothering you." Heather smiled, she was dressed to impress, a blue business set up, her wheat colored hair in a tight ponytail behind her, and a gold locket with the Tintagyl Crest around her neck. "You don't know me and nor does your Queen, but my name is Heather Tintagyl and not to push out my credentials of my mother. But she was Lady Protector Tintagyl of the Hanseatic Commonwealth, as her daughter I've studied a great deal of politics myself. I realize that Girltopia has been going through a bit of a world crisis at the moment, with the various problems faced by the international community. I was hoping I could be given an audience with the Queen and offer my services as an advisor. Would I be allowed entry?" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
