    "I highly doubt that. . ." Vate replied gently.

    "Hold on just a moment. . ." he mumbeled as he injected a bit of antiseptic near Ice's wings then continued to clean and care for the rest.

    "It's about to finish ripping open," Ice said. "You might want to step back." Vate and Celestial both did and right in time.
    The rest of the skin tore and her wings came out in all their crumpled glory.

    Ice sighed. The skin stung now, but otherwise she felt fine. She took a good look at the wings. They were partially covered in blood, but were a purplish color. A purple color... just like the faerie that was in her dream memory. "Oh no," she suddenly breathed and slouched.

    "Ice?" Vate asked, voice filled with worry as he and Celestial gently clean off her wings.

    "What is wrong?"

    "A dream," Ice replied, closing her eyes. She felt tears, but she would not cry. She mustn't.
    "It wasn't just a dream, but a memory as well," she opened her eyes and steadied her voice.
    Slowly, she told of her dream. The sadness of it, the pure evil.
    "I... am part dark fae," she finished. The very word spoke evil, the very feeling of the word.

    Vate and Celestial both paused for a moment, but quickly pushed it away.
    "It isn't anything to worry about, Ice!" Vate replied.

    "There isn't an evil bone in your body, I am sure!"

    Celestial nodded.
    "Da! I'm sure your bloodline has no hold on you!"

    "I-I sure hope not," I replied. "I wouldn't want to hurt anyone here. Well, there is one person I would hurt."

    "Who?" Celestial asked.

    "Joss," Ice replied. "Now, am I free to go?"

    "Of course," Vate replied with a nod.

    "Notify me if you need anything, Ice!"
    He added as he put away the left over gauze and went to wash his hands.

    Ice nodded, "I will. Though I have a feeling that I've been taking more than my share of 'anything.'"
    She slid off the chair.

    "Where are you off to know?" Celestial asked.

    "To change clothes," Ice said, "and to look at my new wings."

    "May I come?" Celestial asked.

    "It's your tent as much as mine," Ice laughed. "But, if you want to help me wash the blood stains out of my clothes, I will be more than happy," she joked.

    *************************************

    At the tent, Ice changed clothes. She had to where the clothes she had came in the first day because of her wings. She figured out why all the backs of the shirt were lace up or had wholes in them.

    Then she went to look in the mirror. Her wings were the same as large butterflywings, but were a light purplish in color. She touched one, and though it was still tender, it felt like it was her own.

    "They're beautiful. . ." Celestial commented in slight awe.

    "But I don't think i would tolerate the pain that leads to the beauty!"

    "I just hope that they don't fall out," Ice added, laughing. "They can molt all the want, but they had better not fall out!" Celestial agreed and they both laughed.

    "Well, shall we go out and show the world my new wings, or would you rather get back to your hunting?" Ice asked

    Celestial shook her head.

    "I have all the time in the world to hunt! But seeing everyone's reactions shall be utterly priceless!!

    "Shall we go then?"

    Celestial nodded and out they went, parading around the Circus.
    The people everywhere were quite shocked, causing much laughter between the two girls.
    Finally, they ran into The Circus Master.

    "Morning Milady Master," greeted Celestial.

    "Good morning!" Ice called cheerfully, lifting her wings regally.

    The Circus Master's eyes widened slightly and she laughed.
    "My, my. . Seems we have a butterfly~."

    She commented while admiring Ice's new wings.

    "They are amazing!"

    Ice giggled, "A butterfly indeed! Thank you, though you wouldn't like to know how much pain I went through to grow them."
    She recounted the story.
    "And Celestial found me in the forest near a spring and took me to Vate," she finished. "But I didn't have a choice in the matter."

    "Nyet. No she didn't~." Celestial replied evenly.

    The Circus Master laughed.
    "Oh, I am sure it was all for the best, Ice! We don't need to lose any more recruits!"

    "For the best... I wonder how often wild fae grow wings and don't have a doctor or medic around to assist them," Ice said.

    "You aren't a wild fae!" Celestial replied. "And you were losing a lot of blood, whether you realize it or not."

    Ice rolled her eyes. Then she turned to The Circus Master and asked, "What do you mean by 'lose any more recruits'? Has something been happening to the others?"

    The Circus Master sighed, her face expression changing to one of bitter pain.

    "Nyet. . Not exactly. . . Last year was just not a good year for my Circus. . . We lost far too many young to sickness or raids from the government. . ." She ran a hand through her long dark hair. "Our numbers were cut nearly in half. . ."

    Ice looked around the circus grounds, trying to imagine it with more people.
    "I'm sorry," she said. Her wings drooped a bit.
    "Let's go get some breakfast," she said. "I'm starved. Growing wings tends to do that to a person I guess."

    The Circus Master brightened slightly and nodded.

    "That sounds lovely!" Celestial added before moving off to the mess hall.

    The three went and ate breakfast.

    Afterwards, Ice asked, "Milady Master, when do we have our next show?"

    An excited glint lit up in The Circus Master's green eyes.

    "Very soon, actually. In perhaps a few days."

    "That soon? Marvelous!" Celestial clapped her hands together excitedly.

    "Oi, then we had best practice," Ice said getting up. "I don't know how my acrobatics are going to be changed because of my wings."

    Celestial grabbed a hold of her wrist and pulled her back down. "Not today," she said, "you've been through a lot already. I don't need you passing out in mid-air. I'm sure you don't want to go see Vate again today. You've been to the infirmary how often in the last few days?"

    "Too much," Ice replied. "But we need to do something. You can't expect me just sit around all day and relax!"

    Celestial tipped her head. "We could always visit Vexos. . . I'm sure he's working on a new invention or repairing a vehicle.
    He may even have something for us to test drive!"

    "Alright," Ice nodded. "It's better than sitting around all day."
    The three ladies got up and went out of the mess hall.
    "Lead the way," Ice said, "it's not like I know where we're going."

    Celestial nodded and lead the way.

    ~{*}~

    When they entered the hanger, Ice was mildly shocked. She had expected a decent holding area with a few military vehicles but instead was met with a large covered building filled with everything from a small russian helicopter to a few foreign luxury cars.
    Towards the back, Vexos sat working on what appeared to be an advanced motorcylce.
    He looked up and smiled brightly at Celestial then to Ice.

    "Welcome, ladies! What brings you to my humble garage?"
