The little Doppelganger looks over her gear, devoted to assist Mr. Anon in the best way she could. She packed her tiny back-pack with all the essentials.

-A small bag of cookies; check!
-A box of band-aids; check!
-Colored Pencils, and notepad; check!
-A photo of Anon given to her by Fubuki who was passing them out to everyone without his permission…
*blush~*
Check!

With that she set out to look for Anon by asking one of the caretakers, and luckily for her, she spotted the founder herself; Katy minding her own business patrolling the halls. The Doppelganger wasted no time in asking where Anon might be today so she can rush over to his aid.

“Anon? Oh~ sorry little one, but I believe he has the day off today…No Anon this morning” Katy explained.

“Aw~” the Doppelganger was rather dejected…

She rested her head on forearm, the silky, spotted fur resting gently against her cheek, tapping the sharp claw on the end of her hand against her temple, the cat-like ears on the top of her head, sprouting out from a mess of short, yellow hair, twitching as he stepped on another stick. Now that she thought about it, watching him rumble through the underbrush, he was more like a very fat rat meandering its way through the forest floor, caution thrown to the wind in its arrogance to satisfy its hunger, not knowing an owl hovered just above, watching in bemusement at its antics. She had to stifle a chuckle at the comparison: it wouldn’t be fun if the prey knew it was being hunted just yet.

Another day at port.

Another crate to count.

Everything seems to be going just about right… but where the hell did this thing come from? There’s nothing on it. No paper, no holes to see what’s inside, no crew member to keep an eye on it. Must’ve been left behind. Someone’s going to end up on spending the night in the crow’s nest if that’s the case.

Oh well, it’s not my problem. Time to finish the count and then get some lunch… hmm. Wonder what that was. Sounded like a knock… ehh, screw it. I’m hungry.

A lone orphan Doppelganger looks both ways before crossing the hall…the soft tapping of her little shoes echo loudly as the only source of sound. Scurrying to her little haven found at the Orphanage library she finds shelter in the soft lighting, and tranquil atmosphere.

As she wonders of what small tale to pass her time with in the myriad of books on the bookshelves, her concentration was blindsided by the chattering of other children as they were exiting the library.

“I finally saw Mr. Anon! He was so nice, and cool!” A passing auburn feathered Harpy in her pre-teen squealed.

“Aw~ lucky! I’ve been looking all over for him! I heard he’ll play with you lots if you find him!” A Kobold with hair, and fur of soft, almost white brown.

“Yeah! He taught me how to preen myself better with his fingers! *Ah~* I wish I had fingers~!” The Harpy swooned.

“I can’t wait! I can’t wait! I want to meet him! I always just catch his whiff, but he’s always gone!” The Kobold whined.

“Maybe one day we can find him together then! I’ll search through the skies, and you run around the ground and we shout whenever one of us finds him!” The Harpy declared.

“Great idea! Great idea! I can’t wait!” The Kobold cheered.

The two girls left soon after, leaving the young Doppelganger with mixed feelings.

“…I-I guess I’m the only one who’s not allowed then…” the Doppelganger murmured to herself.

Suddenly she didn’t feel like enjoying herself anymore…
