Celeste Moreau, la petite zombie...
Celeste Moreau was the daughter of a very important man, and like most privileged children she was sent abroad for her studies. Celeste attended the very illustrious Toulouse Academy for Young Ladies in the South of France.
The Academy taught Young Ladies of Means how to navigate high society with the appropriate airs required of old money. Classes such as Spoon and Forks-manship, climate conversationalism with respect to moisture and Madame A's advanced etiquette occupied much of C's time.
As it happened, Ms. Moreau spent most of her efforts on her favourite class 'Coquet: Acting Amorously Without Serious Intentions'. It is during her studies of Love-play that caused most of Celeste's troubles in this story. At the local park one Tuesday morning, while toying with the emotions of a doting squirrel Celeste happened upon a very strange man. This man was stumbling about the park, stiff legs- arms outstretched trying in vain to catch the pigeons near the fountain. Celeste was trying to attract a brown squirrel by coyly exposing her ankles when the man's head bolted straight up and seemed to stare right at her! His slack jaw dropped open and the most barbaric growl escaped his gaping maw.
C began to collect her skirts about her ready to withdraw from this horrendous frenchman's company but it was far to late for that. OUT came a meaty chunk of precious ankle flesh and that was that. As Mademoiselle lumbered towards the Academy, her joints already getting quite stiff with rigor mortis, Celeste wondered if she ever really had a chance with that dashing brown squirrel anyways- it was really too late to tell because she had eaten the poor thing after she awoke from her ordeal. "Hmmm, I can't wait to eat... I mean- tell, tell the girls..."
