**Panel 1:** Top view of a modern city, with giant buildings. We can see a huge crowd of people wearing curious clothes and accessories, especially in their head (helmets, solar panels, antennas, etc.). We can also see big mechanical machines with several legs which tries to move without crushing anyone (even a house is moving!). Countless pipes join buildings between each other and floor, and it seems that a lot of energy is flowing into them. Despite the modern aspect of the city, we can guess, very very far from the focus point of the panel, a huge old castle, on the top of a steep slope.
Amoung the crowd, two little witches are talking.
_Pepper: Come on! Tell me who we are visiting!_
_Coriander: I said you will see once we'll be at destination._
**Panel 2:** Focus inside the crowd. Pepper is trying to follow Coriander, who carries a big bag on her shoulders. Pepper has to carry Carrot in her arm, because there are a lot of people around. And also a lot of mechanical being, who seems to try to help people. One of them is displaying a mini map of the city to a tourist. Carrot is very curious, and looks around him.
_Pepper: Why are you keeping this secret? I am your friend, you can tell me!_
_Coriander: You heard my father: nobody should know anything about the identity of my client._
**Panel 3:** Pepper and Coriander passes ahead of a shop with animated ads... performed by mechanical beings. It is about a hi-tech new object, which seems to give the exact moment of the day... but which is very big! Carrot is attracted by a mechanical mouse, presented as toy for cats.
_Coriander: It is a willingness of my client, and as my father often says: "the customer is king"._
_Pepper: I know, I know, but I imagined that for me, you could do a little exception..._

**Panel 4:** Coriander stops walking and focus on Pepper, who is surprised. She is not really angry, but forceful.
_Coriander: And what do you imagine that I am doing, right now? You are here because you are listening at doors!_
**Panel 5:**
_Pepper: Yes... but I couldn't know that you would have a secret talk with your father at the same moment that I am coming to your castle..._
_Coriander: That's why Father accepted that you can accompany me, but at the condition you ask NO question. NO QUESTION, Pepper. So follow me in silence, please._
**Panel 6:** Pepper and Coriander go on a small alley. There is a tramp, seated on the floor.
_Pepper: As you wish... but I am more curious than before! What does this client looks like? Tall, small? Is they aggressive, nice?_
_Coriander: No comment._
**Panel 7:** A mechanical being, humanitarian specialist, gives some coins to the tramp! Carrot is amazed.
_Pepper: OK! "No question", I know! But you can tell me what you carry! It is not about the client!_
_Coriander: It IS, actually. So no more questions. Ah, it is here._
**Panel 8:** Pepper and Coriander walks in the alley.
_Pepper: OK! "No question", I know! But you can tell me what you carry! It is not about the client!_
_Coriander: It IS, actually. So, no more questions. Ah, it is here._

**Panel 9:** They are in front of a big wall, with no signs, and some cracks. It seems to be an impasse.
**Panel 10:** Pepper is suspicious.
_Pepper: Well... so we are visiting a... wall?_
_Coriander: First rule of the city: don't rely of the first aspect of things. It is not a simple wall. Hu-hum. Excuse me, sir_
**Panel 11:** The wall is moving! Pepper and Carrot are surprised. The cracks opens, and little eyes appears.
**Panel 12:** A bigger crack opens when he's talking.
_Wall: Hum? Oh, it is you, princess. I suppose this is for the same thing as usual?_
**Panel 13:**
_Coriander: You are as perceptive as usual, sir._
_Pepper: I get it! I see why you can't say anything about him, it is a very special client..._
## Page 4
**Panel 14:** The cracks disappears.
**Panel 15:** Another one appears
**Panel 16:** It becomes bigger, and separate the wall in two.
**Panel 17:** Slowly, an opening appears.
**Panel 18:**
_Coriander: It was not my client. Come on_
_Pepper: Oh..._
**Panel 19:** Pepper follows Coriander inside the opening.
**Panel 20:** The opening is closing.
## Page 5
**Panel 21:** They are inside an old tunnel. Coriander turn on a light on her hat.
_Pepper: I bet your client is more weird than this wall! And in your city, I expect everything of..._
_Coriander: We get down!_
**Panel 22:** Coriander is getting down while Pepper has no time to react. She disappears inside a blur of bats.
**Panel 23:** Pepper and Carrot waving their arms/paws, but there is no more bat. Except one, which flies beyond her head.
_Pepper: Help! Help!_
_Coriander: It is finished. Let's go on!_
**Panel 24:** They continue her walks. Pepper is grumpy, and Carrot, scared, looks carefully around him. The last bat of the previous panel landed on Pepper's hat, but nobody has seen it.
_Coriander: It is a trap for intruder. My client do not want to receive any visit, except me._
_Pepper: Yes, that's why they attack you too!_
_Coriander: My client has not the technology to do the difference. It is a subject I am working on. Ah, it is here._

**Panel 25:** They are in front of a mechanical being, fatter than others they saw, with a helmet on the head. The helmet has a light. Aside it, there is a wagon on rails. Behind him, a big console with many buttons, all with a different colors. Some of them are turned on. There are so some levers, activated or not.
_Coriander: Morning, sir. I am sorry to disturb you, but..._
_M.Being: Don't say more, princess Coriander. I am used to your visit, now._
**Panel 26:**
_Pepper: I don't see why your client is so secret. It looks like other mechanical beings we saw previously!_
_Coriander: Him? No, he is just the manager of underground rails network. He'll help us to reach our goal. Go up!_
**Panel 27:** Coriander gets on the wagon, followed by Pepper, disappointed again.
_Pepper: I start to believe that we'll never met your client..._
_Coriander: Be patient! We can go!_
**Panel 28:** The manager activates one lever. The wagon starts moving.
_Coriander: Maybe you didn't expect all these obstacles to go to see a simple client._
## Page 7
**Panel 29:** The wagon is quick.
_Coriander: That's normal!._
**Panel 30:** Shift!
_Coriander: My client's life took an unexpected turn during the childhood._
**Panel 31:** Looping!
_Coriander: My client didn't know where to go!_
**Panel 32:** The wagon stops.
_Coriander: Without a house very quickly, my client's life would stop._
**Panel 33:** The wagon is pushed upward by a platform.
_Coriander: Meeting my father was a springboard to my client!_
**Panel 34:** The wagon emerges from the floor.
_Coriander: He gave a hidden house to my client, with some traps to stay peaceful._
**Panel 35:** Pepper and Carrot are confused. They are in a garden, judging by the grass at the floor. Coriander closes her lights and shows something with her hand.
_Coriander: That's it! It is my client's house._
## Page 8
**Panel 36:** A little and classic house is in front of them. It is really far from the modern city. It looks like Pepper's house. We can see a forest behind the house, and a little river at its right.
**Panel 37:** Pepper seems to be angry.
_Pepper: After all these mysteries, don't tell me that your client is a casual person!_
**Panel 38:** Coriander shows Pepper's hat with her hand. Pepper is afraid.
_Coriander: For sure! You can judge by yourself, she is just here!_
**Panel 39:** Pepper and Carrot are surprised. The bat is always here! It flies around Pepper and Carrot
**Panel 40:** The bat disappears in an intense magic light! Pepper and Carrot jump.
**Panel 41:** Pepper and Carrot are on the floor, confused. A young girl took the place of the the bat. She has a very pale skin, mi-long dark hair, two long canines, wears a black cape and fashion clothes, with a crossed onion on it, and "Blood, death and moon" written. She seems to be very enjoyed. Coriander has put her bag on the floor and hold a potion on his arm, with pride.
_Vampire girl: Oh, princess! You are amazing! You already have it?!_
_Coriander: For sure! This is the best vampire suncream my engineers can create! You can trust its efficiency, because the customer is king!_
_Pepper: The first aspect of things, you said? What a curious city!_
