"Don't use it as a toy... It is quite strong..." she says, then walks onto the plane... She is as usual carrying two weapons... Even on her private plane.

The three guards come right after her, but two additional enforcers enter after Lani, the rest of passengers are already onboard and when they all take a sit the plane starts. The inside is nothing more than just a regular first-class interior, maybe with less seats and a bit more... empty space...

There are some cabinets and wardrobes, but nothing you'd expect from a monarch's private jet... there is no swimming pool, or huge cinema set... Just regular seats and some wooden lockers... Only one regularly sized screen attached to a PC and a radio... Not even a TV... Qirka turns on a radio and a song called "Little War" starts playing.

“You have a nice private jet,” Lani notices, lightly drawing patterns on the lockers with her fingertips. She buckles her seatbelt and asks, “Would you like to chat, or should I just read my novel?”

"Your call... If you have any questions about KL or any personal questions unrelated to politics I can answer them now..." she says, staying cheerful as the song changes to a more turkish one...

Lani closes her eyes for a few moments and becomes lost in the music. She falls asleep to the beautiful rhythm and awakens to mid-flight turbulence. To calm herself, Lani opens her book, Lady of the Fleas*.

A Nation States knockoff of Lord of the Flies.

A few miles of the coast of Free Keltia

The sun has set, and the stars procced to rise over the hills of the mainland just in sight. The attendees of the coronation have presumably gone home or attending other business elsewhere. Helena and Harry, both travel away from the mainland coast in a black Deyest military helicopter, sent to pick them up after the coronation. The sea is only seen below where the light of the rising moon touches it, letting the strokes of waves be seen almost infinitely across the Epitome lake. The helicopter travels just around the garbage island situated of the coast, built as a means to get rid of waste and a spot for a war. Its almost fascinating. The moment passes as the helicopter continues across the lake. Harry notices Helena looking out of the window, out into the sea, with a small smirk on her face. "What have you seen now?" Harry asks, trying to see out of the window Helena stares out. Helena looks back at him and says, "I think I know where her majesty has been..."

A large row of lights cascade across a part of the open sea, all situated atop of what Helena knows very well. A ship marks itself in the ocean, waiting for them. The DND Navelandora. Deyest's first class flagship.

It sits out, in-between 4 smaller ships, situated around the steel beast, as if soldiers protecting thier commander. The gargantuan navy ship sits fearlessly out in the water, letting of its signal like a beautiful lightshow. The helicopter flies to the rear of the ship, finding its open deck to hover above. Helena and Day both step out of the copter before it lifts off again, letting them down onto them deck. Two row of saluting soldiers greet them, although for one exception. Helena and Harry salute themselves at the shorter figure at the end of both rows.
"At ease commander." She says.
Yuri stands with two soldiers flanking her with a smile on her face. she bears her red dress and her jewelled crown instead of her military outfit she prefers to wear.
"Your highness," Helena says, putting her hands behind her back, at attention. "This is surprising." She simply states, looking around the deck of her ship. Uniformed soldiers march across the ship whether with security detail, maintenance or the ship's main crew. "Which part?" Yuri asks, the wind of the sea picking up the very bottom of her dress to flow with the wind. "Both, madam." Helena says.
"Well, I didn't go to the coronation personally because of... my own reasons, if it helps in anyway." Yuri says, putting her own hands behind her back. "And, the reason we're here with this ship is because I personally wanted a demonstration."
"A demonstration?" Helena questions.
"Yes. because of my unfortunate kidnapping at the time of the ships launch, I wasn't able to even witness the very first departure of my capitol ship. Now, I want a bit more." Yuri says, getting closer to Helena and Harry. "I'm sure we can show you." Helena says, "What did you wish to see?"
Yuri holds out her hands and a soldier places a slightly large pair of binoculars in her hands. She wanders over to the side of the ship and gestures Helena to follow. Helena steadily walks over next to her and Yuri hands her the pair and points off, into the night. Helena, looking through the binoculars, see's a ship floating lonely off in the distance with the help of night vision.

"What is it?" Yuri asks.
"Older Deyest model, 2005 frigate maybe..." Helena responds, looking closer at the finer details of the vessel.
"Outdated, is what. I'm asking you to dispatch of it. In the way a captain with 16inch cannons would do so." Yuri responds, a light touch of her hands on the ships rail.
"Ah, a fireshow is what you wished to see?" Helena says, taking the pair away from her face and looking at Yuri, a small smirk plastered on.
"If you will." Yuri responds, the same smile on her face.

One of the members of the bridge walks up from behind Helena and hands her the ships radio. She takes it from him and starts her orders, "Bridge crew, relay orders to fire on the frigate."

Only a few moments later, Helena travels up to the control bridge of the ship where the crew talks around the ship, relaying orders and getting targeting positions. The ships position is marked and the fire crews are getting ready. Meanwhile, on deck, Yuri has been given a chair to watch the spectacle happen. She leans back and the mounted turret on the other side of the ship starts to whir. She is given noise cancelling headphones to stop her from going deaf and she gladly removes her crown and places them on. The turret and it's four cannons start to aim upwards to angle on the ship and it stops with a metallic thud. Coordinates are pinned and the shells have been loaded into the chambers. The sudden silence is unnerving for the moment as the ship waits only for a second. Helena on the bridge takes the radio to her and gives the order.

"Fire!"

The second is filled with sudden flashing lights as the almost 100'000 ton monster of a ship is pushed backwards by the sudden force great enough to almost kill people with the sound it makes. The shockwave of the cannon's firing blows back the hair and dress of Yuri on the opposite side of the ship as the two shells flying at their target let out a noise sharp enough to piece the air it flies through. Only a second later, a shell digs into the front of its target, hitting it with enough force to almost completely crush the bow of the ship. the second, digs through its thin armour and into the depth of the ships where an explosion rips the vessel in two. A fireball lights up the sky, for a second looking like a rising sun before the black plum of smoke overtakes it. The soundwave finally hits after a few seconds, even being heard slightly through the noise cancelling earphones that Yuri wears.

Only a minuet later, Helena reaches the deck, where Yuri takes off her headphones with a smile ripped across her face. "Helena, if this is the beast you put into battle, I dare hope nobody gets into your firing range." Helena lets out a small laugh, "Madam, I doubt we will need to if any enemy's know of this ship. Still, shall we set a course?" She asks. "Ah, yes, if you will. I doubt any local patrol gets out this far but we still don't want to be around to get the blame for waking coastal cities up, do we?"

The ship fires it engines up, leading the way back to home territories with its following ships just in tow. The night once again goes silent, as the ship turns of its lights, leading away into the dark, with once more, only the moonlight to shine over the sea.

The Castellan Emperor, Arrow Knight, thanks all of them for coming, as the coronation party has now ended. As they leave, the Artemis III rocket shoots into the sky and towards the moon while the Thialren patriotic song "Thialrer the Brave" plays.

The Tsar, Tsarina, and Prince thank them for inviting them to such a nice event, and proceed to leave. A few hours later, the Tsarevich flies in to sign the charter.

After greeting all the guests, Ciarán gets a call. In a rush, he takes Sam and Saoirse back to the train. Muttering something about a large explosion and a massive battleship near our coast.

Khazar Lechian enforcement watching the whole thing from their satelites can't help but admire the whole spectacle... "Destroying their own ship, just to show off capability of the new one? That's... That's... I don't know what that is, but it sure is impressive..." says their leader upon seeing the whole thing. He quickly sent the video to Qirka, who watched it on her jet while traveling to Astana with Ho Lani. She couldn't help it but laugh at the explosions as if they were hilarious jokes... She then sent it to the internet without thinking... This was technically tactical data, but she had the right to do as she pleases... Doing it, she basically made the recording of this operation go viral in all of KL and then quickly getting into the internet outside of it, eventually reaching Yuri herself...

Dircya T. Rubino, Eiffel Paris, and Bradley Chen arrive at the convention. With Isaiah already home, and Lani in Astana, the delegates send for Axel Farreau and Isla Oreth to accompany them and complete their five.

Once the formers have entered the building, the delegation takes turns signing their names in flawless calligraphy. President Rubino is the last to put down her, and she gingerly takes her time to perfect her signature. If rushed, she will create a messy scrawl that is near impossible to read. Fortunately, nothing goes awry, and Dircya lifts her ink dagger to find a bloody purple ink evenly spread within her letters.

She sighs in relief.

The latters then arrive to escort them home.

“Hold! I also wish to sign” the Shahanshah grabs a ink and quill and signs the Charter.
“But to let the majority know these laws will not be superior than the national constitution. Thank you and good day.” Ardashir then left the meeting.

After the confirmation that the explosion was not a threat to the nation, Ciarán rushes in, having sprinted from the train station.
He grabs the ink and quill, signs and proclaims the charter to stand below the constitution, but to have great importance in our government.

In the Capitol of Thialrer...

Regional Chairman Tiberius Varro, Castellan Emperor Arrow Knight, Prime Minister Nico Carter, and numerous other government officials are already at the Charter convention. The voting on the new Thialren constitution was largely in favor, and it will now go to a nation-wide constitutional referendum among the citizenry.

Tiberius Varro takes his seat, ready for the convention to begin, and ready for the delegates to arrive.

A roving Hyrkanian missionary is contacted by a Priest of Xhotal, Imittu, and instructed to act as a representative of Xhotal and Ghej, and to sign the Charter for gods and country. He attends the charter convention, trying to remain inconspicuous among the other delegates. He unceremoniously signs the charter, placing it below the Constitution of Hyrkania, as instructed by Imittu.
