Faith Chapter 23: Drinking Sprites

This entry is part 23 of 18 in the series Faith

The Sushi bar was an odd place. There were odd tables around which 8 small benches were place, not so much chairs. Well, they looked like chairs but didn’t have back rests. The tables weren’t really tables either: they were mattresses where, I presume, Yoko and her colleague laid to serve as sushi platters. Empty,

Faith Chapter 22: Meeting Kaleb

This entry is part 22 of 18 in the series Faith

There was a gentle knock on my cabin door. I wiped the remaining tears from my face, put on a smile and went to open. It was Aisha… again. She didn’t so much as enter but rather she launched herself at me, hugging me tightly. I was completely dumbfounded. “Thank you. I knew I could

Faith Chapter 21: Orientation

This entry is part 21 of 18 in the series Faith

All weird, I walked down to the second deck, where the orientation and guidance office was. The door was open and I could see Erica (I rightly presumed) reading a book at her desk. I know it shouldn’t suprise me, but I wondered what was the point of asking a women who visibly has little

Faith Chapter 20: Proposition at Breakfast

This entry is part 20 of 18 in the series Faith

I left Henrietta’s office with a slight smile. Not that I was happy to have had my blood taken, but that I was happy with my new employment or dress code but rather simply because I was looking forward to breakfast by the pool bar. I returned to the common area and saw a few

Faith Chapter 18: Waking up

This entry is part 18 of 18 in the series Faith

I woke up disoriented. I was still in the same cabin but somehow, I had forgotten the end of my conversation with Paula. I know that near the end, we were more or less swapping stories of our youth, but I think I became more and more tired and just lost the thread of the

Faith Chapter 17: The Cabin

This entry is part 16 of 18 in the series Faith

We reached room 213 and Yoko wished me a good night sleep. “I am in cabin 228 if you need anything. It’s in the other corridor. Don’t hesitate to knock, I don’t have a roommate”. She had a weird smile which put me ill at ease. Perhaps it’s the insistence on “anything”, perhaps it was

Faith Chapter 16: Cleaning up

This entry is part 17 of 18 in the series Faith

Aischa soon excused herself as she had another event to MC, leaving Yoko and I alone in the small storage room. There was a certain tension left but I couldn’t tell exactly from where. In my past, I learned, right or wrong, that when things are awkward, it’s best to just offer help. “So, do

I was still with Yoko when the door opened behind us, and the presenter arrived to join us. “Ah, there you are Faith! I had heard of your arrival but had not had the chance to talk to you before now. I am Aisha and I very happy to met you.”, she said, extending her

Both carts approached the crowd of clients. An announcer, a nicely tanned brown haired girl, held a wireless microphone and explained the program of the evening. “Dear honored patrons, we have tonight the two eternal rivals. The Norwegian Goddess Helga is defending her crown for the 4 night in a row and will be pulling

Faith Chapter 13: Gearing Up

This entry is part 13 of 18 in the series Faith

It didn’t take me long to find Kayla on the deck, where she had promised me. It’s only when I was standing next to her, at the back of the boat that I realized I was outside, as naked as the day I was born! She was very happy to see me and hugged me
