'I don't know.' Was Talbaza's response to the question; assuming she meant why Cassie had gotten a bit put out earlier. That rather worried him.

Cassie slipped in next to Jun, shifting a bit uncomfortably. "I'm sorry... you don't need to babysit me or anything, I don't want to burden you, especially when you're recovering..."

Jun shook her head "You're not a burden and whatever it was that happened left me drained but otherwise i'm okay. Nothing a nap can't cure." She scooted closer to Cassie as the car started moving. "Something's up. You know you can talk to me." She took her friends hand to reassure her.

(I'll just let the convo play out. Skip over me until then)

Cassie paused, unsure whether or not to answer. She'd told Talbaza a bit, but that was mostly because she had been emotional and he'd caught her in a... compromising situation. However... Jun had trusted her enough to invite her into her home, to let her stay the night. And after Talbaza had reacted... she knew hiding it wasn't going to fly, and she'd have to explain her behavior regardless. "I... I panicked when you collapsed. I was reminded of when Mama passed suddenly, and... and that reminded me of everything else, and I..." She shifted uncomfortably, refusing to look at Jun. "I ran away and Talbaza found me. He... had to talk me down from the railing of a bridge..." She looked ashamed of herself, eyes watering.

"I... I told him that I wouldn't have done it, but... but I would have, I think... I was thinking it really would be better if I died..."

Jun shook her head and looked at Cassie. "What on earth would make you think that things would be better if you died?" She turned her body towards her and took both the other girls hands in her own. "This world would be a lesser place without you. Not to mention the people you would leave behind. People who care about you." Jun swallowed hard her mouth suddenly dry. "No Cassie, I know I've only known you for a short while but I consider you a big part of my life now. I'm sure Tal feels the same way. What happened to me was terrifying and i'm sorry that happened. I'm sure what happened in your past was completely horrible but you can't let that take control of your life. You are a good person who deserves good things."

The car continued towards Jun's apartment. She reached into the small side bar and pulled out two bottles of water. Popping the cap off them she handed Cassie a bottle. "After my father was killed I was completely lost. Devastated and alone, I was sad all the time. I was moved from foster home to foster home. Never really fitting in. I was depressed all the time. Sure I saw doctors and took pills but those never helped me." She took a sip and let the cool water sit in her mouth for a moment before she swallowed it. "It wasn't until I met some people while I was in America that I found something in me. With their help I was able to become my own person." She took another sip. "And now here I am today. It's all about understanding the things that happened to you and accepting them. I'm not going to force you to tell me everything. But just know, you can talk to me." She gave Cassie's hand a gentile squeeze.

Cassie was silent throughout, drinking her water as she listened to Jun. After a long, moment, she took a deep breath. "...I still don't know what happened... Papa never told me. But... Mama just collapsed one day when I was six, and Papa rushed us to the hospital. She died two days later. Papa... he said it was my fault. I don't know if it was or not, but he insisted, and I came to believe it. He went from being the nice, loving man I knew, to something... hateful." Cassie shifted a bit. "Everyone always told me how much I reminded them of Mama. I remember, when Mama died, grandmother said that Papa and me would need to take care of each other. And she comforted Papa by telling him that I was a living reminder of everything that was amazing about Mama." Cassie smiled softly for a moment at the thought, but it quickly faded.

"That's why... I didn't say anything. When Papa started to... touch me. I told myself that was what Papa needed, in order to get better, and go back to being the Papa I'd loved so much. He'd touch me, and we'd watch movies. And eventually, we started doing the things in those movies. I don't... think I need to tell you what those movies were, you can probably guess." A pause, as Cassie stared at the water bottle in her hands. "He didn't get better. He started getting scared that I'd tell someone about what was happening. He hired someone to home school me, so he could make sure I didn't say anything. When I got older... sometimes my uncle would spend the night with me."


"When I was eleven, my father got really drunk, and loud... and more violent about things. A neighbor seemed to figure out what was going on, and called the police. My father was arrested, and I was... placed with my uncle. He was nicer than Papa, but he came into my room more often... and sometimes some friends of his would come over." Cassie had shrunk into herself, having practically wrapped herself into the fetal position, still holding the water bottle and staring at it.

"My uncle was killed during a bank robbery when I was fifteen. Apparently he tried to grab one of their guns or something... so I was sent to live with my grandmother, who can... honestly barely take care of herself, even back then. But I was left alone. At least at home..." She reached up, adjusting her headphones. "I started getting a lot of attention at school. Because of my eyes, my hair... and my body. If they weren't making fun of me, they were really aggressive... after everything, I was afraid of people... apparently that meant I thought I was better than everyone... I'd started wearing headphones while living with my uncle. Just to... tune everything out. I don't know when it got so bad that I'm afraid to take them off, but..." She shook her head a bit, taking another deep breath.

"I got really interested in music... I learned to play the guitar... and I started trying to push myself to get out there... so I agreed to model for some pictures. And... I kind of enjoy it, but it's hard to get myself to relax, especially if working with people I barely know, or... or that say things that worry me. But... I want to do it. I want to get over my fears..." She trailed off, glancing over at Jun finally. "That... that's all. I'm sorry for talking so much..."

Jun sat there and listened to her friend. So many thing in Cassie's past. So much pain and tragedy. Hurt and sorrow. Jun could feel the range of emotions going through Cassie as she told her story. She continued to listen until Cassie was finished. 

Jun for several moments said nothing. A single silent tear rolled down Jun's cheek. She opened her mouth to speak but nothing came out. She didn't have the words. Jun she moved close to her friend and wrapped her arms around Cassie. Holding her close she let her tears loose for now. "I... I'm so sorry you went through that." She took in a shaky breath "Thank you Cassie. Thank you for trusting in me enough to share this." Jun pulled back and looked Cassie in the eyes. "We're going to make it all right." She said and pulled Cassie close again.

Cassie didn't seem to know how to respond at first, before relaxing in Jun's arms. "...Thank you.. I've... always been worried about how people would react if I told them..." She hesitated for a moment. "I don't... really know what to do. The modelling, my grandmother, getting people to leave me alone... things like that..."

Jun released her friend and sat back. "Well, I can't help with what happened in your past save for being the best friend you've ever had. I can however help with your current debacle. I know some people who specialize in private security. You may need a better manager and maybe a personal assistant. Also, we need to work on your 'incognito' wardrobe." She continued to hold Cassie's hand while the car drove them back to the apartment.

Cassie squirmed a bit. "Personal security? A manager, a personal assistant? I... I'm just doing a little work on the side, I don't think I'm really... worth that. I'm not a professional or anything, there's not really a demand for me as a model or anything..." A pause. "...Wait, 'incognito wardrobe'?" Cassie seemed content to let Jun hold her hand; it was comforting.

Jun nodded "Judging by the paparazzi you had to deal with, not all of them were there for me girl. You have a following. But it's up to you. An incognito wardrobe, that's what you wear in public so people won't recognize you. A trick i picked up in the States." Soon the car pulled into the parking garage of Jun's building. The driver pulled up to the elevator and stopped the car. He got out and opened the door for the ladies. Jun let go of Cassie's hand and stepped out of the car. "Even as a side job you can gain a following. My voice acting started as a side job to help pay for collage. That exploded. So now I have to have 'incognito wardrobe'. It helps. It really does." She held out a hand for Cassie.

Cassie paused for a moment, then took the offered hand. "I... okay..." She stepped out of the car, biting her lip a bit. "It... it's kind of fun, and I want to get past my shyness... so..." She took a deep breath, making a decision right then and there, for good or ill. "Jun... will you help me become a... um... what was the word... was it gravure idol? I think that's what it was..."

Jun beamed at her friend. "Okay, it's settled then. We're gonna make sure you get the best." She walked Cassie to the elevator nodding to her driver. "Thanks Kaneda. See you tomorrow!" The large man grunted and moved back to the car and drove off. Jun the pressed the button and soon they were on their way to her floor. As the lift stopped Jun fumbled her spare set of keys. "Okay, so first and foremost we need clothes. Gotta keep you incognito, second bodyguard. I highly recommend Kaneda. He's got loads of experience and a list of recommendations as long as my arm." She slid the key into the lock and turned. Soon the two were inside. "We'll brainstorm about other things later." She looked around "Tal? Are you here?"

"I'm here."

Talbaza came from the side. "Welcome back you two." He did feel as if he was missing something but probably him over thinking.

Cassie tensed a little bit when she saw Talbaza. It was nothing against him, and she honestly wanted to shake this feeling of unease around him. Especially when he was so nice to her and tried to help her. She... considered him a friend, but it was hard to shake her past. "Th-thank you, Talbaza... and... I'm sorry for worrying you earlier..."
