As Xandi grieved for poor Natalia she was reminded of the grief the nurse felt at Juliet's passing.....(well what she thought was her passing)

"O lamentable day!
She's dead, deceased, she's dead; alack the day!
O lamentable day!
O woe! O woful, woful, woful day!
Most lamentable day, most woful day,
That ever, ever, I did yet behold!
O day! O day! O day! O hateful day!
Never was seen so black a day as this:
O woful day, O woful day!"

After speaking the lines with true hurt and grief she looked at Imogen who had accused her of such a hateful act and said, "Natalia was the perfect Juliet, I would never destroy such an artist as her. I aspire to be as she was, but not to take the part that was surely to be hers. But to pay homage to her beauty and talent. You on the other hand were offend by her lack of interest in your sexual advances. So perhaps a lover scorned would be a more appropriate place to look for the guilty,
I believe Imogen has reason to have wanted the beautiful Natalia's death.

"O deadly sin! O rude unthankfulness!
Thy fault our law calls death; but the kind prince,
Taking thy part, hath rush'd aside the law,
And turn'd that black word death to banishment:
This is dear mercy, and thou seest it not."


Thirteen was seated in the lobby rehearsing parts of the script when the screams and cries of prop hands, fellow actors and sound technicians echoed in the theater.  She dropped her script on the floor and raced to where she heard the commotion.  A young man who was working on the lighting whispered to her that a fellow actor was found murdered in the theater.  A ghostly chill ran through Thirteen's body; she had heard about the strange happenings and stories of hauntings in the old building.

But who could have done such a vile thing?  Earlier in the day she had seen Imogen in the restroom scrubbing at a dark stain on her shirt but paid no mind to it.  Could she have had something to do with Natalia's murder?

Val was torn.  It was impossible to believe that Rolin, thirteen, Xandi, or Imogen would have done something so horrible, but the same could be said of everyone here.  She might not know everyone here well, but she knew them all by reputation, at least, and she couldn't imagine any of them being so ruthless.

Still, everyone was expected to speak up, and she'd have to choose someone.  If she didn't, they might think she was responsible!  She hesitated, then finally said, "Maybe risingdemon knows something.  I did hear she was even more envious of Natalia than most of us are."  She clung to her already faintly battered script, looking around at her fellow thespians.

A single tear slipped down Rolin's right cheek, thinking back to all of the time he had spent with Natalia.  He took a deep breath, pulling his purple leg warmers up, then stood slowly. He still couldn't believe Natalia was dead.

Who could have done such a thing?

He couldn't imagine anyone doing such a thing.. He sighed again, slowly wiping the tear off of his cheek. "If it must be someone, I can only agree, perhaps it was Imogen."

Imogen calmly shook her head. "I wasn't me. Accusing me would be a dire mistake. We are all in the dark as to who it might have been, but I strongly suggest you look elsewhere for your accusations."

Marguerite rubbed at her eyes, bleary from the party which happened in one of the booths. She only heard about the death a few minutes ago and wondered if there was a murderer trying to remove anyone who got in their way of obtaining a great part. "I can only think of voting for Imogen who looks as if a few might have Intel and not giving it around to save the rest of us."

Kyrsa paced back and forth, looking from one suspect to another with a sad shake of her head.  "How are we to know who it could be?  There's no evidence to point at any one of us that I know of..."  With a dramatic sigh her eyes stop on Xandi.  "Please don't take it personally... I simply don't know who to choose..."

She lofted a brow at Marguerite.

"I highly doubt anyone is better informed than myself, or would be, if I had more time to review the props and see where the dagger had come from. Once again, I urge you all to accept it would be highly foolish to lay the blame on me."

Izu simply stared at one point, his face pale, eyes filled with tears, unable to believe that the lovely Natalia had been murdered. Who would do anything like this? And just for a role? For he guessed that the murderer had envied Natalia and wanted her place... So... it had to be a woman... He looked around all the women's faces, finding all of them looking suspicious (or maybe he was just a little bit paranoid (which he totally was)). Biting on his bottom lip as he tried to gather his courage to speak up, he only managed to mumbled a quiet 'Xandi'...

Imogen threw her hands up in despair and rolled her eyes heavenwards. "If you want a better chance to find out who has done this, it would be a good idea to vote someone else."

No one seemed to hear any of her words, however, and so she sat down at a desk backstage, and penned a letter to her agent, detailing what should be done with the money owed to her for partaking in this play. Most of the benificiaries were charity organizations, but she did urge her agent to ensure no money was sent to acting schools or drama classes. That latter was tripple underlined.

Although Xandi had been convinced of Imogen's guilt in the beginning she now believe that someone else was guilty. And while changing her vote would only partially help Imogen she had to try. It would also make things more harmful for her own life but she could not sentence an innocent person to die.

I believe we have all be mislead. I thought that Imogen was guilty at first too, but now I truly believe that ThirteenHearts has tricked us all. I believe that Imogen has much to offer to the success of finding the true murders. Please I beech you, help me save Imogen.

The fair Imogen's fate seemed doomed, indeed, as the cast and crew waited to hear a name from Aiden, when the tides of suspicion and ill will suddenly changed.  Unable to hold back those who now cast her in such a murderous light, thirteenhearts knew her time on stage had come to a rather bittersweet end.  One by one the stage lights fell to a hushed dim until only a single spotlight remained on the woman destined to be the Lady Capulet. 

"O me! This sight of death is as a bell

That warns my old age to a sepulchre."

The noose that swung down from the catwalk, seeming to fall with clever precision, came the moment the words had left her lips, ringing out clearly to the back of the theater; a moment later, the hidden floor beneath her swept down, and Lady Capulet -- to be played by the Understudy thirteenhearts -- was no more.  The Thespians could breathe a sigh of relief for they were a little more safe now going into the next act -- almost. 

One Understudy had been uncovered ... but what of the others?

The spotlight faded.

Imogen rubbed her neck and swallowed thickly, exchanging a glance with a Xandi. "Thanks", she said quietly, not quite able to suppress a shiver. She supported herself with one hand on the table, and stared at the empty space where thirteenhearts had been in numb shock.

All was not quiet within the de Chantal Theater as the lights withheld their flare, the cast and crew taking shelter within the booths, each other, and knowing they were being watched, analyzed -- their fates were being held by foreign hands, whether they trusted them or not.  Unfortunately for one of the cast and crew, those hands were cut away.  With but a subtle turn of a knob, the house lights briefly flared, signaling the start of Act 2, and the curtains rose.  On stage left a lone candle flickered, its quiet light softly illuminating the wooden chair and its slumped occupant.  With an empty jug of wine in hand, Mercutio's sword at his feet, the Thespian Aiden lay cold and starved of life, his eyes bugged wide and one hand caught on the thick rope twined around his neck. 

The Understudies had struck again.

Xandi grieved for Aiden, her would be Romeo. How could anyone murder such an artist. He was handsome, talented, and wow could he KISS.

She looked around the room at the other actors and focused her attentiion on Goober. He was always jealous of Aiden. Xandi Looked at Goober and said, "Why, Why Goober? Why did you kill Aiden, he was such a fine man."

Her weeping took over and she ran off the stage.

Puzzled at Xandi's actions Goober stares at Xandi open-mouthed. Goober turned to the rest of the population gathered. "I don't know why Xandi thinks I, of all people, would want to kill Aiden. Why, I barely even know him...and would have liked to get to know him better..."

Hmm, I think the killer might be Rolin...

Imogen listened quietly to both Goober and Xandi, and turned away, a crease of worry marring her brow. Her gaze fell to Mercutio's abandoned sword. In the play Tybalt had killed Mercutio. Had Goober not been eager to take up that part?

Coincidence?

Perhaps, but the subconscious is an odd instrument. It shows more than one is willing to reveal.

Remiel sighed.  "I didn't know that thirteenhearts was capable of such a notorious deed, but now it makes sense.  She was always jealous of my..." and here he struck his best William Shatner-esque pose.

"...Incredible!

Acting!

... ... ...

...  Talent!"

He glanced sidelong at Imogen and Xandi.  "I have no idea what transpired between Imogen, Aiden, and Xandi, but, obviously, as they were correct about thirteenhearts, methinks I shall cast my lot in with them, for now.  Goober, I'm afraid your career with the Grand de Chantal Theatre is over."

Glancing down at the crotch of his tights he noticed that the sock had slipped a bit to the left.  He turned around, blushing, and surreptitiously adjusted it.
