As the band prepared to play the next song, the large crowd consisting mostly of men all hushed quickly, their eager eyes locked on the sparkling curtains that concealed their beautiful night's entertainment from them. At the very back of the club, sitting at one of the private booths was a lone figure of a woman. She was a toon, sitting cloaked in shadows, a glass of vodka before her on the table, a lit cigarette held loosely in one hand that rested on the tabletop. She wore a revealing white dress, a long, red coat hiding her body from the eyes of the club. Like everyone else, her eyes were fixed on the navy blue curtains of the stage, eagerly waiting impatiently for the star of the show to appear.
The band began playing their music and the whole club's lights faded to darkness, save for one spotlight that shone on the curtains. The woman in the back of the club shifted her position, leaning forwards in her seat, resting her elbows on the table before her.
The curtains opened and the entire club erupted in applause as a certain red headed toon slowly made her way onstage, the spotlight following her every movement, causing her red dress to sparkle like a thousand diamonds. The woman in the shadows felt her heart skip a beat at the sight of her, Jessica Rabbit. She looked just as beautiful as ever.
"I know you suffered, but I don't want you to hide. It's cold and loveless; i won't let you be denied."
Everyone in the club watched in total awe as Jessica moved around the stage, her voice smooth and sexy as she sang.
"Soothe me; I'll make you feel pure. Trust me, you can be sure" the woman in the shadows almost groaned out loud as the red-head slid sexily down the wall of the stage, and back up again. Her red hair gleaming as it moved with her.
"I want to reconcile the violence in your heart. I want to recognize your beauty is not just a mask. I want to exorcise the demons from your past" she moved slowly and deliberately across the stage as she sang, her dress moving around her, hardly covering her yet not revealing enough. Someone in the crowd wolf whistled and she glanced over to them, winking sexily, not once stopping her song.
She ventured to the edge of the stage, leaning down - keeping perfect balance in her high heels – to pull the man before her into a standing position by his tie. She leaned close to his face, "I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart " she sang softly to him. The man shivered and went weak at the knees, falling back into his chair.
She smirked at him and straightened, stalking down the long stage, her hips wiggling sensually, her hair falling over one eye.
She moved to the very edge of the stage, walking on the top of the table there, the young man seated there helping her by holding her hand as she climbed down to stand on the floor of the club. She moved behind him and rested both hands on his shoulders, leaning down to sing in his ear "You trick your lovers that you're wicked and divine"
Her hands slyly trailed down his chest as she sang her next line, "You may be a sinner
But your innocence is mine". The man groaned at her touch, his eyes rolling to the back of his head. The woman in the shadows smirked at his reaction, ignoring the strong pang of jealousy she felt for him being so close to Jessica.
"Please me" she sang, her voice becoming low and husky, turning on every member of the club even more. She trailed her hands back up to the man's shoulders. One hand reached out and cupped his cheek, swinging his head round so he was looking straight into her green eyes, "show me how it's done" she trailed a finger across his cheek, "Tease me" then eventually pushing him away from her, not enough to harm him, but enough to make him almost fall off his chair. "You are the one" she sang as she moved through the crowd, her beautiful eyes flitting here and there, taking each of them in.
She moved to another table, sitting on its top, leaning over to its occupant "I want to reconcile the violence in your heart" she trailed a gloved hand down his chest, "I want to recognize your beauty is not just a mask" then rolled off the table, and stalked closer to where the woman cloaked in the shadows sat. She grabbed onto one of the poles that held the red curtains to each booth apart and slid down it, opening her legs, her dress covering her private area "I want to exorcise the demons from your past" someone in the crowd groaned loudly as she did so, causing a low chuckle to escape her cherry red lips, she straightened once more and moved away from where the cloaked woman sat, glancing in her direction, curious to see who she was as the shadows concealed the toon perfectly. But Jessica was only there to entertain the males as ordered by the club owner, the woman in the shadows knew that "I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart".
She began her slow strut back to the stage as the band played the instrumental part of the song, her part beginning as she climbed gracefully back onto the stage – again aided by a very eager man–"Please me, show me how it's done" she slowly moved back to the centre stage, every eye in the room trained to take in her every move, from the swish of her dress, to every wink or smirk she gave, "trust me" she spun around as she reached the centre of the stage, her arms thrown wide, the spotlight making her hair and dress to shimmer, dazzling everyone, her voice strong and deep as she sang "You are the one!"
Every one in the room caught their breath in their throats as they watched her, she looked like a Goddess standing there, her song casting a spell over everyone, pulling them into her charm. Her beautiful body enchanting them as she moved with grace unlike any other toon.
"I want to reconcile the violence in your heart I want to recognize your beauty is not just a mask.I want to exorcise the demons from your past" she turned her back on the crowd and stalked away, "I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart".
The curtains fell, concealing her from view, her spell broken as she disappeared. Every member of the club were instantly on their feet, cheering, clapping, shouting her name and declaring their love for her.
The only one who remained unmoved was the woman in the shadows at the back.
Holli sighed, her heart slowing to a less excited beat. It was unbelievable how one woman could have so much power over her.
I guess some things never change she thought slyly to herself as she stubbed out her cigarette. The crowd hushed as the next act appeared on the stage. Holli ignored them and downed her drink, raising and leaving her booth quietly, heading for the backstage door.
Time for a little reunion. She smirked as she pushed the door open, heading for the door marked "Jessica Rabbit".
