Chapter 1: Remembering Childhood Friends
It takes place back in 1910 in Paris, when the flooded Seine River started. But the story is mostly about a monster that lives in a garden and his love for a beautiful, young French singer. Raoul is a delivery guy with his crafted vehicle named "Catherine" to pick up his best friend named Emile from work at the cinema theatre. "Thanks for picking me up today, Raoul," said Emile. "What are friends for Emile," replied Raoul. "You don't mind, if you stop at the photographic store, would you," asked Emile? "Sure why, what happened," replied Raoul?
"I need a new belt for the projector because I was daydreaming again," said Emile. "What were you daydreaming about," asked Raoul? "Back of our childhood memory with Maud, Bella and Lucille," said Emile. "Oh yes, I remember them, they were our friends since twelve years ago," replied Raoul. "We haven't seen them since their parents died and lived with their Aunt Carlotta," said Emile. "We should see them sometimes," replied Raoul.
Lucille and her two sisters, Maud and Bella work at the cabaret called L'Oiseau Rare (The Rare Bird). Lucille goes as a singer, Bella goes as a ballerina and Maud goes as the harp player. Lucille is a most successful singer and her sisters are very proud of her, even their aunt Carlotta. Madame Carlotta believes that the chief of police named Maynott would be the perfect husband for Lucille.
Meanwhile, Maud and Bella were thinking about Raoul and Emile at the same time. "Do you think we will see Raoul and Emile," asked Maud? "I hope so Maud because we haven't seen them in twelve years now, since our dear Mother and Father died," replied Bella. "I really hope see Emile because I missed him dearly," said Maud. "I know how you feel for him, maybe he will ask you out," replied Bella. "Really," said Maud. "I believe so, Maud," replied Bella.
Madame Carlotta is trying everything she can to push Lucille into the arms of Maynott. "Lucille, I'm just letting know that the Commissioner is coming tonight," said Carlotta. "Must I love him," replied Lucille. "Don't worry my dear, you will see him at the best seat of the house," said Carlotta. "What if he's not my type," replied Lucille? "Not you're type, don't worry you might change your mind about him, once you see him" said Carlotta. Just after Carlotta left Lucille's dressing room, Lucille has disagreed with her. "Sorry, but probably still not my type," replied Lucille. She knows there might be a man of her dreams out there somewhere in Paris, maybe an angel or a musician.
After Emile got a new belt, he also gets a new camera as well. "Hey Raoul, check out my new camera," said Emile. "Wow, she's a beauty," replied Raoul. "Maybe I could bring it with me, while we make that delivery to the Professor at this garden," said Emile. "Ya, maybe you could video tape entire jungle just like in those movies you have watched lately," replied Raoul. Raoul has to deliver some soil or seeds to the Botanical Gardens, where the mysterious professor lives and works. They hope nothing can go wrong with this delivery.
