A full day and Sonya liked to think she was getting the hang of this place-liked to, but really it was still a whirlwind.

At the very least, she knew what to do about the kids, who it was safe to leave them with and all of that. Which was awesome, because as much as she had some experience with babysitting, it was completely different than actually having them for herself.

She'd heard that there was a club on the island, something between a jazz and an actual strip joint. Normally she wouldn't have even consider going there, but according to what she's been told, she was of age on the island, which made going to jazz clubs even more exciting. She wasn't even sure if she'd attend a performance for tonight, but she wanted to check the place out atleast.

The place was closed of course, but she wasn't so sure about going in when it was actually open. For one, it was past when the children's office closed and two..this was more for exploratory purposes anyway. Still, it didn't take much to trick the lock and open the place up.

With her was a thick short staff-really a fairly thick stick. Back home she was on drill team and they had a competition in a month and she wasn't about to slack off any time soon. This was by no means a military establishment, but hell-a stage was a stage.

Using the stick as a rifle, she began swinging the stick around: crossways, straight, tossing it up and catching it. No music with her, but then there wouldn't have been music at the time. All she had to go by was the rythym of the rest of the squad and that had to be done by memory.

As bad as she felt for the folks affected this time around, after already becoming a teenager once and a man twice, Saffron was glad she'd been skipped over. It was surely temporary, as all the other times had been, so everyone just needed to wait it out.

She'd already been planning to get in some practice time today at the club, and saw no reason to change that plan. When she got there and got out her key to unlock it, though, she found the door was already unlocked. Frowning, she went inside. "Jack?" she called, wondering what he was doing there. He had the only other key, though, and she knew she'd locked up last night.

Hearing a noise upstairs, she headed up there, wondering if Jack just hadn't heard her. When she saw the young girl on the stage, though, she frowned, striding forward with her hands on her hips. "Who the hell are you and what do you think you're doing breaking into my club?"

"Sonya," Saffron said, some of the tension and annoyance going out of her. "Judging by the way you're addressing me, I'm guessing your mind got younger along with your body, since you don't seem to remember you actually used to work here and I'm not terrible fond of being called ma'am."

She took her hands off her hips and stepped up to the edge of the stage. "It's all right. I'd just appreciate you asking to be let in next time. I'm not hard to find."

"Believe me, I know how frustrating it is to not remember things and people you should remember," Saffron said. "I had complete amnesia for a month, about a year ago. I wouldn't recommend it."

She hopped up onto the stage. "So, now that you're here, and you know you're legal - the minimum age to get in here is sixteen, by the way - what can I do for you?"

"You heard correct," Saffron replied. "Jazz club downstairs, strip club up here. And you're welcome to stop by and check the place out while we're open. I'm a little short staffed these days, I'm afraid, so I'm the only dancer currently, unless I can talk Mike into getting up there this weekend. He's my male dancer, but he only performs once a month."

Saffron shrugged. "Why not?" she said. "Just because it's not stripping, doesn't mean it's not entertaining. And sugar, let me tell you, I could use a little more help around here with entertaining. I don't see why you couldn't, long as you're good."

"I think I'm good on the auditioner side of things," Saffron replied, "but thanks for the offer. I am interested in this knife throwing thing, though. Do you think that's something you could do here, on this stage? We wouldn't necessarily need to find you a person, just a target, right?"

"I bet we could find someone," Saffron said, wondering briefly why she'd never thought to see if Bill would have been willing to do something like what Sonia was suggesting. "Lots of folks have various weapons here. As for the babysitting, though, I'm not sure. I couldn't really tell you who older you generally has watch the babies."

Saffron nodded. "He disappeared," she said. "I didn't know him well, but the two of you seemed happy together."
