Showtime! << The next day, The KMA family is in full business mode.>> << All the models are up, in Sally's custom studio, prepping for the show, sitting at their assigned vanity stations after having checked over their assigned racks.>> << Sally watches over, directing the support staff, while the models themselves are pulling their tools and tricks of the tread from their famous KMA totes.>> << Hair, make up, accessories, and the first round of outfits are being put into place.>> << in the gallery, where the show will be taking place, the guests- the journalists, the buyers among them, as well as private customer Dina, and her daughter Elizabeth, are seated...with a few people whispering, pointing, and giggling at Cameron King, who's face is still bruised from Morgaine's power slap the night before.>> << It's almost show time.>> << Cassandra is making sure that all the assembled guests are seated and comfortable. Alek is stationed backstage. He'll be responsible for the music, lighting, and other effects for the show. Zach was back there as well, checking the lighting, making sure the settings were perfect. >> << He hears the clicking of high heels, as Sharon Kelly can be seen making her way toward him. Zach noticed she looked refreshed, and focused. Last night had done her some good. She was able to release some tension and enjoy herself, now she was back in business. >> Sharon: Hello, Zach, Alek. Sharon: Alek, Make sure the track list is in place. << Zach would soon be sitting out in the gallery with the rest of the audience, and normally, Sharon would be sitting with him. But this time....>> Sharon: Everyone's in the studio, getting ready, and all is running smoothly. I'll be commentating the show. << She had cards in her hand with each design from Sally and Andre, with the key details she needed to highlight, and who would be wearing what.>> << She looks at Zach.>> Sharon: How do I look? << Sharon rarely asked for anyone's opinion of her appearance. Style was something that came natural to her, but whenever she and her KMA family were about to do a show, she always had "that moment" with Zach.>> Sharon: I'm glad to see that all the partying last night didn't leave anyone unable to get back to business today! Sally is finally warming up to Jackie too! Last night I saw you talking with that girl, Elizabeth...Zizi, as she likes to be called? What's her story? << Sharon WAS curious about the girl, and had made a mental note to talk with her one on one, to see if she had aspirations of being a model. As DINA told it, that was all the girl wanted...but Sharon was a good reader of people, and something told her that Zizi herself might not be as interested in that path as her mother was FOR her. She wanted to know what Zach had learned from the girl, and if there was something there.>> << And while Sharon and Zach were talking, Alek would notice her outfit, it was a simple black dress, but it flattered her shapely figure.>> << She primped in a small mirror nearby, checking her hair, and making sure her accessories were on straight.>> --------------------- << And back in the studio>> Sally: PLACES everyone! << Andre was now checking over each model, with some last minute adjustments and touches as each of them lined up for the first round.>> << Sally , with DRINK in hand, walked behind him slowly, giving her seal of approval, and a smile or touch of encouragement to each model.>> << The girls looked stunning, they were picture perfect, and having Morgaine back with them made it all come together so nicely.>> << When they reached Jackie, FINALLY, the ice seemed to be thawing, as Sally leaned in, and gently caressed Jackie's cheek.>> Sally: Break a leg, JACKEE' darling! << She said Jackie's name with that flare and accent that meant she decided to accept her as "one of her girls" now.>> Andre: We're good to go for this round, Sally. << Sally finished off her drink, nodded and clapped her hands>> Ladies are we ready!? << the KMA modeling family all replied.>> Sally: Alright then! << Sally disappears through the double doors of the studio and makes her way to the gallery, now back stage with Alek, Sharon, and Zach.>> HELLO, my darlings. << her voice gets their attention.>> Alek, be a dear.... << She held out her hand. He knew what she wanted...a DRINK. And he quickly handed her another flute of champagne. He had a chilled bottle on standby.>> Andre's got the girls all ready! Sharon, are you ready? Sharon: Of course, darling! Sally: Zach, my dear boy, is the lighting in order? << Zach assured her that he checked everything, and Alek said he had the track list and visual effects ready.>> Sally: Well alright then, let's get this show on the road!
