Small Change

The Crumbling Cake

Story 6 - Session 7

Enter the CEO of Allegro: a man who is not a man, and a CEO that does not even remotely understand how an actual business is built and run. There is an aggravating amount of back and forth, where our heroes banter with the CEO in a round-about manner regarding his fake business and his fake person without touching on the real reason they are there.

Luckily, or unluckily, their banter is cut short by the familiar Tea Fairy of before, who is, apparently, the CEO’s son. Things continue to get weirder. The Tea Fairy claims Allegro Corporation is a refugee center. The CEO is displeased to learn his son has eaten another sibling (the woman with the butterfly tattoo). The CEO also keeps a pit full of “hungry brothers and sisters.” The CEO has numerous children, which he refuses to number. The CEO and his family cannot go home, because there is no ‘home’ left; the Tea Fairy elaborates such:

“Once upon a time, there was a beautiful, sweet, and adorable birthday cake. And there was never anything else. And everything was fine. The cake was happy, being the only thing that should have ever been. But then, the cake began to feel… ill. As the sweet, innocent cake became sicker and sicker, she began to crumble away. And more and more of her began to become things which were not cake. The cake was sad. But no one cared. Everything that was not cake continued to exist, right in front of her poor, innocent eyes. And everything was ruined forever. Eventually, there was nothing left of the cake but crumbs. But those crumbs remember.”

With no cake to call home, the CEO and his family have taken sanctuary in the Freehold that is Allegro. He claims he and his family can exist there without needing to prey on humans, and that he does not allow his family to do such – though his power to enforce this is finite.

The CEO is aware how exterminating him and his family makes sense from their point, so to help persuade them to not do just that, he swears, on his Staff and on Gabriel’s handshake, to (more or less) prevent harm to humans by himself or his family. He also offers information regarding another fairy that may be of greater concern to them: look for Thunder City’s most beautiful woman.
