'Our guest will arrive just after 6. At most we have two hours left.' Sebastian thought while looking at his pocket watch. 'Not enough time to buy a new tea set or find high premium meats. What should I do?' Sebastian thought to himself with his hand under his chin.
"Calm down all of you!" said Sebastian to the three babbling servants.
"Perhaps you should try taking a page out of Tanaka's book and start behaving like..." Sebastian stopped what he was saying while looking at the cup Tanaka was drinking out of that had a Japanese symbol on it.
" Everyone listen closely to what I have to say, we might be able to save this night yet." stated Sebastian while taking Tanaka cup and holding it up.

A horse drawn carriage was approaching the mansion. A man stepped out which was the person in charge of the Fantom company that is in India.
"Oh how impressive!" Exclaimed the man while looking at the Japanese like garden, while Sebastian closed the carriage door.
"Hello! Welcome Sir!!!!" The four servants welcomed the guest while bowing.
"This is called a Stone Garden. It is a traditional feature in Japan." announced Sebastian to the Italian.
"Wonderful truly an elegant garden" replied the guest.
"We thought it be appropriate to serve dinner Alfresco this evening." Stated Sebastian.
"Allow me to escort you inside until the meal is ready." Continued Sebastian while leading the Italian guest to the front door of the mansion.
"Aha I should have expected this from a Phantomhive! I cannot wait to see what else is in stored." laughed the guest while being lead inside the mansion doors by Tanaka.
"Whew! we actually did it!" Stated Bard while wiping the sweat from his forehead.whipping
"Who would have thought a dozen bags of gravel could turn into an amazing garden!!?" shouted an amazed Finny looking at the work they did.
"Naturally we were able to handle this. We serve the Phantomhive family after all. There's still work to be done, let's take care of it while the master is talking business with our guess. Look sharp now." Replied Sebastian.
"Right!!!" shouted the three servants.
Ciel and I were playing a board game while talking to our guess.
Ciel moved a game piece. It was my turn. I moved mine while the guess started to talk.
"The progress we have been making with the East Indian Factory is quite astonishing. We already have the makings of a top notched staff." stated the Italian.
"Bewitched by the eyes of the dead. What rotten luck it seems I loose a turn. Is that correct Ciel?" I stated/asked my brother
"That is correct, Cynthia." stated Ciel while slightly looking my way.
"Hmm, right now is the perfect time, we should start expanding the company and building a strong labor force..." the guest never got to finish for he was interrupted by my brother.
"Go on. It's your turn." he said.
"Oh yes. I just spin this then." the guest spun the spinner. "Ok there, five spaces. Now what I wanted to ask you perhaps you could contribute another 12,000 pounds to support our expansion? I believe it would be quite a profitable..." he got cut off again by my brother.
"Lose a leg in the enchanted forest." stated Ciel.
"I lost a turn remember." I stated to the guest with a pleasing smile on my face while tilting my head to the side slightly, even though it was a forced one.
The guest looked my way and turned back towards the board.
'discussing' I thought trying to keep the scowl off my face.
"I see. I move six then." stated the guest.
"No you don't" I started.
"That's three." continued my twin
"What?" asked the Italian clearly forgetting that he lost a leg.
'idiot' I thought while looking at the guest.
"You lost a leg if you recall. Now you only move half the number of spaces." finished Ciel.
"Oh my, HaHaHa!!! This is a gruesome game isn't it. Is there no way to restore my leg then?" asked the guest.
"I'm afraid once something is truly lost sir.. One can never get it back again. Your body is burnt by raging flames." Ciel said in a colder tone while the guest looked at the board game just like Ciel.
I was getting board of the game so I was gonna go see what the servants were doing.
"Brother I'm going to walk around for a little while, is that alright?" I asked him while standing up and smoothing my dark blue dress out.
"I don't mind." Ciel said while looking up at me.
"Thanks!" I stated happily while giving him a kiss on the forehead. I look at his reaction. He's blushing slightly.
I giggle while heading out the door.
