Wanting more than what was planned; wasn't that his own goal, in a way? He shook his head,  "I don't think it's bad," she said, and added quietly, "I'd be hypocritical if I did." Walking, he wondered if that had been an invitation to ask what he was so curious about, and so carefully inquired, "If not the next Mayor of Shadeslake, what did you have planned for your future?" Did she wish for the freedom to peruse a path different than that of her family's previous generations? Perhaps that of a doctor or a true merchant without the political battles the mayoral position promised? He could see her succeeding easily on that pathway, based on how easily she navigated various conversations thusfar, but part of him thought it may be a waste for her talents to be kept out of public office, especially if the altruism she had shown for Cassandra and the others remained throughout her governance of the trade city.

Kitty struggled to stifle another yawn. At least she knew that she could rely on her legs to keep moving her forward. Even if she dozed off, she didn't think she'd collapse. She had worked hard all her life, and it wasn't like she was going to unlearn everything she had been familiar with just because they were on a different kind of path. She wished they could have settled down for the night, especially after such a luxurious stay the night before.

At Shashka's mumbled apology, the pale-haired girl stirred slightly.

"We all make mistakes," she said in reply. It wasn't really her that the girl with the braid needed to apologize to. It was primarily Saphira, but she wasn't sure Shashka would be ready for that step just yet. Besides, they weren't a group of five right now, anyway.

The dreaded question came, and she wrestled with the idea of telling him. This could be the most embarrassing confession of her life. She couldn't possibly. But then she turned over what he said earlier.

"Does that mean you don't want to be...?" she let the unspoken word hover between them, momentarily panicking. What if his wish went against hers and they both presented the star? What would happen, then? How would the King decide which to grant? 

"I... I want more freedom," she said finally. "I haven't decided yet what I want to be, but I hope to figure that out by the time I reach the end. Or maybe just ask the King to save that free open-all-doors ticket for when I do decide."

Part of it was true, because she was beginning to doubt her original wish every step of the way. She didn't feel it was fair anymore to Leon, and so now her wish was unclear, all up in the air. She had a feeling she might know what to do once she had the star piece in her hands, but if not... well, she was sure she could think of something else that would set her up for life with it.

Her question seemed out of the blue from where he was, but he quickly realized where she had drawn the conclusion and shook his head against it, "No, I do, it's just..." How could he explain? "complicated," he finished, brows furrowed against how unsatisfying an answer that must have been for her, but then that's all he'd be able to give her so far - unsatisfying, half-answers - so it wasn't exactly out of character, he guessed. 

The answer she gave him filled him with relief, the guilt easing off his shoulders; without a specific wish in mind, she wouldn't be all that disappointed if the opportunity never came, right? Especially as most of those doors were already opened to her based on her background. Maybe she'd take the journey and any clarity she found while on it as the prize at the end, and armed with knowing herself better take that into her future and nevermind the lack of a wish. 

Still he nervously worried his clenched fingers with his thumb thinking about it, but honestly there was no other way around the problem. Saphira, and anyone else that was on this journey, would be in danger if they returned with him to Thelline; truly, they were in danger even now for travelling with him, whether he convinced them to turn back now or later, for when this was over if he did not succeed they would be targeted under the assumption they knew too much and could be considered treasonous risks. He did not just risk his own life and freedom, but theirs.

But hers

but he had no other choice - there was no alternative, no second option. It was do or die and, unfortunately, he was unable to shake them off this path, probably unless he told them the truth, and if he did that it would be too dangerous - for them and for others - to let them go anyway. Honestly, the "murderer" idea had not turned out the way he had hoped, but just then he had wished the idea of a murderer on the road had deterred them from this quest before it reached this point. 

Believing her to be awaiting an answer, he swallowed and just nodded, unable to completely mask the guilt and trepidation he felt. Perhaps he could come up with a plan to save her in case he failed. Maybe there was something he could do for her - for all of them - before it was too late and too many assumptions were made. Something that would protect them even if it ended poorly for him. Until then, he'd just have to keep going like he wasn't potentially killing them all, famed murderer of Highwall or no. "Yeah," he said, his voice wavering for just a moment before he corrected it, "I'm sure he'll let you save it."

The apology came as a surprise. Cassandra hadn't expected an apology for herself. She'd only attempted to prompt Shashka into apologizing to Saphira. Still, although the words were said quietly, she did still say them.

And that counted for a lot, in Cassandra's eyes.

Kitty replied first, and Cassandra smiled over at her. Though the smile slipped a little as she realized just how tired Kitty must be feeling right now. But, surely they were close to the others, right? Just a little longer... She was almost certain she could hear voices ahead of them. The kind of soft sounds that made it difficult to hear any clear words, but were unmistakable as being some kind of conversation.

That had to be Saphira and Leon, it had to. Still, Cassandra's hand went to her borrow flail then, resting on the hilt of it, just in case it turned out that those voices belonged to someone untrustworthy.

She turned her attention back onto her companions. She still wasn't completely certain what Shashka meant by the apology, but she took it as a balm against using Charles's name in such a way. Or perhaps as an apology for her general antagonistic behavior. "Apology accepted," she said, a half smile finding its way to her lips once more. "And I appreciate that you said so. I apologize too, if I've done something to make you not trust me. But we all have to trust each other in this, right? That's what comrades do."

It felt good, to have mended a small part of their fractured party. Now if only the other half could be as easily fixed. She'd figure it out, somehow.

The voices were getting stronger, and if she concentrated, she was fairly certain one belonged to a male and the other a female. Tired of being uncertain, she took in a deep breath before deciding to give in to her instinct. She was confident that these voices belonged to their missing party members.

"Saphira! Leon!" she called out, squinting through the darkness. They probably would call her a fool, for yelling in the night, but--she glanced at the exhausted Kitty, could feel her own muscles protest with every movement--what other choice was there in this? They needed to stop and rest as soon as possible, and the sooner they got through this reunion, the faster they could get some sleep. Still, she gave her voice strength but she didn't make it too loud. "Is that you? Wait up!"

And, she figured, if Saphira and Leon were adamant about remaining separated, at least they'd leveled the playing field by diminishing the head start. Then, she'd make sure she and Kitty were the first to the star, regardless of skills or lack thereof.

Still, her heart wished for the gallant journey with friends that she'd envisioned, the one that had been within her grasp before everything between them shattered.

'Saphira! Leon!

He paused as he recognized Cassandra's voice, half turning towards Saphira to see back down the road. He made eye contact with her and raised his brows before pulling his hood back into place - the call reminding him that they were not alone and that they were close enough to the next village that he should take precautions. She had invited Cassandra and Kitty to come along so he assumed they would wait for them to catch up now that they were in hearing range, but wondered how this development would change the plan to stop after passing through the village proper; the girls from Lorham had every right to be exhausted and would need proper rest if they were to get a good start the next morning, but stopping now risked letting Shashka take the lead. 

But, he let out his breath through his nose, maybe he didn't have to worry about that as not two but three shapes materialized out of the darkness. Shashka was travelling with them. He glanced back at Saphira from under the cover of his hood, waiting to see how she would respond.

He didn't truly answer her, and while she desperately wanted to know what was going on that had led him to this quest, she forced down the question. There was no point in pressing if he wasn't ready to tell her. She wanted to earn his trust and for him to confide in her by choice, not by force.

He agreed that the King would let her save her wish, and that was that, she supposed. She had a long journey to figure out what she wanted.

The sound of a familiar voice calling out to them made her turn, wondering if Cassandra decided to come after all. She waited, then squinted towards the approaching figures. There was decidedly one too many. Her expression hardened and she waited to hear their explanation as to why Shashka was there.

RTRP - Parting ways:
 

DM - Time skip wrote:
And so, just like that, the party of Star Catchers that had been brought together after having faced a terrible event split up over seemingly irreconcilable personality differences at around 8PM on the 6th day after the Solstice.

 Shaska ran as far as she could that night, finally collapsing on the side of the road at ((d12: 11, d2: 2)) 11 PM , her body too weary to continue on despite her best efforts. She awakens at ((d12: 2 d2:1)) 2 AM thinking she had heard a noise, and ((d2: 2)) falls back asleep until ((d12: 10)) 10 AM. 

  Saphira and Leon make a temporary camp on the other side of the village and have dinner and rest for ((d2: 1)) 1 hour, then, as per their plan, continue walking. They pass Shashka at ((d6: 4)) 1 AM and continue walking at a moderate pace until morning (and beyond). We'll meet up with them later.

  Cassandra and Kitty make camp for the night, eat, and sleep soundly~ (and if they talk I want to know about what so you'd better use your admin powers for good and paste any side-rp that goes on during this time skip in here as soon as each scene ends or I'mma die). They awaken well rested at their normal Lorhammie time of sunrise~ 6AM, have a ((d3:3)) quick breakfast and set a ((d3: 3)) quick pace. ((Using Saphira and Leon's timing to come across Shashka, the difference in speeds evened out with their having to pass through the town)) At 10 AM, they come across Shashka just as she's waking up. 

  Cassandra and Kitty and Shaska join together and continue down the path together! Do they have a plan in mind or really great memories to figure out where they're going / where to find the star? We'll find out! 

What will they do? Idk, I'd be continuing the summary if I did~ TO BE CONTINUED, AND THEN FOR REAL TIME SKIP CONTINUED ONCE I FIND OUT♥ 

Please update this thread with any completed RTRP (or slower ;D) Discord RP scenes so I'm up to date with any cool goings-ons~ I'll periodically update in here if something interesting happens for either team between now and the next time this is the monthly HC Event, but for now have fun getting to know each other :> that may be useful later.

;D The next "event" deal may end up with them meeting up again in a week's time IC~

Part Three
The town at the end of the road: Viachia. 

Well, technically it wasn't the end of the road, just that particular branch. Viachia was the last town of Esoria before they reached the major city of Orvati, which, if they were keeping track, would take them too far off of the star's path to do them any good. 
They had traveled from the Falling Star Mountains and it's lush farmlands and pastures through the prairie surrounding Tumbrell and the towns beyond, and now the landscape around them changed further, becoming more arid. While grass and shrubs still grew, trees were becoming more and more scarce everywhere but near a river. The air was dry, the summer heat building, but the winds that swept the steppe kept them cool as they walked towards this last town. Beyond Viachia they would be walking off road, using whatever process they had in store of following the star to its impact site. If they were off by a mere handful of degrees it could take weeks or months to actually find the stone, if they found it at all.

The town of Viachia was but a two day's ride from Orvati - a trading hotspot; being so close to the border with Ko'Bak, Orvati was well protected, well stocked, and filled with wonders and cultures that those from the northern regions of Esoria (coughcough those lands surrounding the Falling Star Mountains coughcough) may never even have heard of, let alone studied with any great detail. Orvati would be a wonder... but Viachia was where they were headed! Viachia was a large town that sat on a bit of a crossroads - it was a popular spot on the traderoute for those heading to or from the border, but somehow managed and cultivated it's small town feel. Many of its residents were farmers or ranchers, and while they would protect their own til the end, they were friendly and willing to offer trust first, rather than skepticism. 

It just so happened that Saphira and Leon arrive at Viachia just as a local festival hit full swing. ((Cassandra, Kitty, and Shaska are 3/4 day behind and so will be reaching the town at nightfall rather than midmorning, and players will be starting in the thread in a few IRL days' time!))

They called it Summer Moonfest, and it fell on the first full moon after the summer solstice and continued until either their new Young Adults returned from Mount Everlast + 3 days or one full week after that full moon - whichever happened last. The party was thrown to celebrate those growing to adulthood and honor the people who had led them towards their success, which was everyone in the town. From the parents raising them and siblings supporting them to the artisans, craftsmen, farmers, ranchers, traders and every other profession in between, all are honored for their job well down during Summer Moonfest, and so all played a part in the celebration.  This year, the first full moon rose just over a week after Solstice, so their new adults were expected to arrive within the week after it started; every day had it's own schedule of festivities, with more filling the weekend hours than nightly activities on weekdays (such as pie-eating contests, flower arranging competitions, rodeo-like activities, the works).

Leon and Saphira happened to arrive the first Saturday of Summer Moonfest, and the town could not be happier to see them. It started with warm welcomes to happy noises of surprise to exclamations that they had to stay for the party! You see, they had assured them after the Mayor cornered them in the square, Viachia had found a way to help Star Catchers without actually helping them - with games of chance and contests! Rather than awarding them the typical prizes, they could play in their festival competitions and games and win a free night's stay at one of the inn's, for example - nothing was fixed, so it was all skill or luck of the draw, but still they could give them something for nothing. It had been decades since the last group of Star Catchers had made their way to Viachia, but Town Hall noted that they had their festival approved by Thelline itself as being a valid way for Catchers to earn extras - like stopping to perform a task in exchange for a meal, Viachia's festival was completely legal.

"So, what say you?" The apple-cheeked Mayor - a vivacious woman in her late forties with brown hair pulled back into a working ponytail style, sporting standard ranch-wear and an accent that made her words just a little more difficult to understand - asked, leaning in with a smile towards the pair, "Care to compete or try your luck? Some of the prizes today include a free night's stay at the best Inn in town, a free meal, and a luxurious bath - surely you young folk wouldn't say no to that?" she finished with a teasing wink.

This town was... cheery. And new. Saphira had never been here before, and she hadn't expected to be welcomed with such... fervor. Finally, a town in which they were celebrated and touted as heroes instead of condemned or looked upon with pity. And this festival thing... William did say he still had all five of his coins, but she had none, and if she could help it, she'd rather not burden him to pay for both of them. She glanced at him, considering. The mayor seemed way too friendly she couldn't help but wonder what was in it for them beyond what it seemed, but she figured there was no downside to this.

"Well, I suppose I ought to at least try," she told William. "You can use your coins if you want to, but I think I'll see if luck is on my side tonight."

The catch was, of course, luck was always on her side.

She turned toward the mayor and asked, "What sort of competitions and games of chance do you have?"

Games of skill and chance? 

While he hadn't spent time on a ranch - they were simply too far away from his home city - he was pretty sure he could compete in a few basic contests of skill; it would save his coins for the return trip, wherein he could potentially use them to purchase goods or services to make the last leg of the journey as quick as possible. As for games of chance... Saphira was Spirit talented. Surely they had to account for that in some way, but they may as well make their attempts, a conclusion Saphira reached as well. "I'll try it out," he replied, giving her a smile from within the cowl of his hood, "Couldn't hurt, right?"


With their reaction to them being so over-the-top, he was certain now that Shashka's partner had not been that way, and if she was following the path of the star she should have intercepted with this town regardless, so, to him, it was official: they were in the lead. They could actually afford this break; they would just need to keep an ear out for the arrival of Shashka and the others and they could keep their lead, get to the star, and get back without any problems. The realization that they were definitely not behind any other competitor lifted a weight off of him, and he was actually looking forward to taking part in a few of these contests. 

Viachia seemed like a nice town. It was friendly - almost overmuch so - but by his read they seemed genuine; the curious glances followed him for having his hood up in the summer heat, but this close to Orvati and a celebration going on, his confidence in slipping under the radar was low.  Suspicious as it may make him seem, then, he had little other option than to just look... a little ridiculous and keep up whatever disguise afforded him. It would not bode well for his whereabouts to make it back home before he was good and ready for that to be the case. 

DM wrote:
The woman - Mayor Bramblebrush - clapped her hands excitedly and motioned for an assistant to rush over with a schedule in hand, "Right about noon we've got a pie-eating contest - winner gets a freshly baked version of yesterday's Pie Competition winner - an apple strudel pie made by Joe Harrison over there - and the competitors get all the pie they can eat," she winked exaggeratedly at her own joke, then continued on, "'Bout midafternoon we'll be playing Horseshoes for a free cold dessert, and then an archery competition for dinner for two at the Barbecue House - best ribs in the area! Later'll be mud wrestling for a luxury spa trip - a cold dumping of water for all non-winning participants for that one," another wink, "and just after sunset we'll be playing cards to win a night's stay at the best hotel in town!"

She beamed, looking around, "Between now and then we've got dancing, art galleries, auctions, street food - though those may cost you some coin... unless you win them in an impromptu contest, mind you - and the judgin' for tomorrow's livestock competitions are open. Tomorrow night's the rodeo - if you wanted to stay for that, you won't regret the fun!"

Note:
In your next post, please indicate what competitions - if any - your character would like to participate in! I'll be rolling dice to see whether they won or lost, taking their skills into account and etc; otherwise roam the town or "timeskip" roam the town!

A pie eating competition? Despite the allure of free, non-captured, baked... seasoned... sure-to-be-delicious food, Leon swallowed and decided he had better not. He'd A pie would be delicious, but it wasn't exactly nutritious and it wasn't exactly something he could easily do while keeping his hood on (they'd almost definitely ask him to remove his cloak in an eating competition of any kind). And it wasn't becoming. So... no pies for him. Horseshoes and archery sounded like safe bets, so when the sign-up sheets were offered, he signed his name beside them - Starcatcher Leon - and glanced down the list at the rest of the day's competitions.

Mud wrestling. 

... On the one hand, a trip to a luxurious spa was exactly what Saphira had dreamed of, so he wanted to try it for her sake, but on the other... if he was worried the pie eating competition may make him lose face, wrestling in the mud was far, far below that on the list of "acceptable" activities. ... though, with his training, he was almost certain he had a good chance at winning. ... but mud wrestling. There was no way he could compete with his hood on - no way he'd want to compete with his hood on, anyway. If they recognized him it'd just get even worse. 

There was a place to sign up for men and women.

... "Is there a way to sign up later in the day?" he asked. If Saphira wanted to try it out - which, being who she was versus what she wanted was, in his mind, a tossup - he may as well try. If they could figure out a way around his being recognized in the process. 

DM's reply wrote:
"Sure thing, hon!" the Mayor replied, glancing at the list to see what he could mean. "Last time to sign up would be 'bout an hour before sunset."
He nodded, signed up for the card game for the hotel stay, and handed the board to Saphira.

She grinned, excited to be participating in these activities with him. For once, maybe they could do something fun together instead of running and fighting for their lives, carry around dead bodies, or inadvertently get embroiled in a vast conspiracy perpetrated by the King.

She immediately crossed off the pie-eating competition; there was nothing fun about stuffing your face as fast as possible with as much food as possible, no matter how delicious said food was. The Horseshoes game sounded more up her alley. Archery... well, she wasn't trained in that - it wasn't one of her preferred weapons - so better skip. Even if dinner for two sounded amazing. Maybe William could win it for them... Mud wrestling? That sounded just unpleasant, even if the prize sounded very tempting... but she neither had the desire to get dirty nor the strength to win the competition.

She signed her name for Horsehoes and the card game, deciding to bet on what she did best - being lucky - then returned it to William. He seemed like he was still deciding on something else, based on his question.

"Dancing, art galleries, and street food. That all sounds fun," she said wistfully, wondering how much coin they would need to pay for any of them. The thought of dancing with him flitted across her mind, and suddenly the air felt just a tad bit warm.

"Are you still deciding?" she asked, quickly changing the subject.

He casually looked over Saphira's shoulder as she made her selections, feeling a little relieved when she did not immediately sign up for mud wrestling as it negated his obligation to join. ...though he could still sign up later, he supposed. He shook his head, adding quietly, "Mud wrestling isn't exactly my style; Mayor Bramblebrush," he called, delicately taking from Saphira and handing the board and papers back over to the festival organizer, "Am I correct in assuming the luxury spa isn't the only bathing facility in Viachia?" Maybe he could drop the idea entirely. 
Bramblebrush~ wrote:
She laughed, "You'd be right. Just the luxury treatment; any inn we've got here's got a bathin' room."


After a quick exchange, the Mayor offered to hold their belongings at Town Hall so they would be less encumbered and enjoy themselves more, and had them deposit them on a cart that a runner would secure for them in her own personal office.

"The exhibitions are around the Town Square! I'll see y'all in a bit - have fun now!"
And so the idea dropped. He nodded and turned towards Saphira, barely able to see her chin let alone the rest of her face with the cowl pulled low; it made him feel somewhat anxious after so many days in a row being able to read her expressions and make eye contact consistently. The sudden lack was a necessary sacrifice, but that didn't stop him from wondering if there was a way around making it. 

Looking around, he found the general direction of the town square judging by the crowd of bodies and made for that. He just had to trust that she was still with him. Annoying, in this crowd. They could get separated. He could just take her hand, but that could be read as something completely different and with all the fuss about them being Star Catchers to start with it could only draw more attention to them. He put his hands in his pockets. 

Maybe they didn't have a Hall of Records - it was a town, not a city. And with this crowd another blond head wouldn't stand out too much among the more numerous browns - surely not as much as Saphira's red hair would. ... but his eyes always did it. ...but if they didn't know to look for them he could be anyone from anywhere with aquamarine eyes. Most people probably didn't even know he was missing to be looking out for him. He was overthinking this, surely --

But then a kid pushed between them laughing merrily and a gaggle of others rushed through giving chase and a man pulling a cart excused himself and asked if he could make it through and then she was no longer at his side at all. He pulled the hood back a bit, found her, and strode over, taking her hand and walking back towards one of the stores, releasing his hold once they were together in the small space between buildings. "Sorry," he apologized for taking her hand, "I didn't want to lose you in the crowd. I need your judgement - I don't know if I'm just being paranoid or if it is valid at this point and in this place, and if there wasn't a higher chance of being separated and the hassle that would cause I wouldn't mention it, but the hood - do you think it is necessary?" He pulled it back just far enough to look her in the eye for her answer.

She walked towards the town square with her hooded companion, momentarily taken in by all the festivities and the general cheerfulness in the air, forgetting for a moment that they were in some kind of life-threatening mission. Once more, she felt like just an ordinary girl in a town that happened to be celebrating, with a friend that she had come to appreciate dearly.

...a friend that was missing.

She glanced around, worried she'd lost him, until his warm hand took hers, and she looked up to find him beside her again. Her heart skipped a beat; his grip felt comfortable and comforting, and she didn't question it, even if she noted the pleasantness, at this point it had almost seemed perfectly natural. She followed his lead to a store, in a safe space not in the way of people. It must be such a hassle by now for him to keep hiding his face.

That he was concerned about being separated told her that he was committed to staying together and to let her help him do what he needed to do, and that gave her comfort. She eyed him critically; she only knew his face because she had made a point of knowing it the last few years, but... obviously, the other three Star Catchers had zero idea who he was, but that wasn't exactly a guarantee no one else would either.

"Have you ever thought about a disguise? Like, maybe a wig, or even just a hat... Or if you're really committed to this, we can always dye your hair," she added the last bit playfully. It was starting to feel like an almost fun spy mission. After all, he already had a fake name.

He appreciated her critical gaze and kept a calm expression, meeting her eyes confidently and waiting for her honest opinion, relieved that she took it seriously despite how ridiculous he was starting to feel about it. He... liked having someone he could rely on for things like this - someone who wasn't just agreeing with what he said because he said it, someone intelligent and critical enough that her opinion mattered to him now. All the little day-to-day decisions of the past week reinforced the competence judgment he had originally made of her back in Tumbrell, their conversations and what she had done with the information he had revealed only seemed to make it more obvious that he had really, honestly lucked out in running into her. That they got along so well was a nice bonus. The buzz of people seemed to fade around them. The gold in her eyes really stood out today; was it the light? 

Her mention of a disguise made him break eye contact, looking aside in a well that's obvious fashion that she only complimented with her jest at the end. "If I dyed my hair my mother would roll over in her grave," he lightly replied with a touch of a comedic grumble, though felt encouraged with her honing in on his hair rather than what he had considered his more notable feature. Maybe it wasn't as rare as people at home made it out to be? ... Honestly it wouldn't surprise him too much. "I didn't bring a disguise; I planned on avoiding all civilization centers that I could so I wouldn't need it. If you think it's necessary I'll keep the hood on, though, as I'd rather not spend a coin just to change my appearance if I have another means to mask it."

She laughed at his comment about his mother. "You do know the color goes back to normal eventually, right?"

Still, maybe that was overkill. She considered it; unless someone made a point to know his face, she doubted a regular citizen would, especially when not in a big city. But what if people were looking for him? If so, they would recognize the King's guards, right?

"I don't think the hood is a particularly effective method of disguise, at any rate. And you'd probably want your entire field of vision available to you while you participate in archery. Also, the hood itself can attract attention as a Star Catcher - this town seems to really love us, which might make them want to take a closer look at you instead of the opposite - taking it off may be a better way to blend in with the crowd," she concluded at last.

She'd feel better if he had a proper disguise on, but between the hood or no hood, not having it seemed like the better option. Especially after how it had gotten them into the highwaymen's clutches in the first place.

He made a face in agreement with Saphira's point that the dye would not be permanent, looking upward exasperatedly as he recalled his mother's abject aversion to any sort of color modification, "That never seemed to matter." Anything beyond light make up or ceremonial body painting was a slight against the Gods according to her, and she had felt so strongly about it he wanted to honor her views, as ridiculous as they may seem. Saphira continued thoughtfully and he paid attention, relieved to hear that she moved on from the dyeing possibility. He found he did not agree with her at first - with the hood pulled down he could be any Star Catcher, there was at least some anonymity there - but he realized what she meant as she went on. The contests would be easier to do without the hood, as would keeping up with her and keeping aware of his surroundings; and, as she said, if they were so excited that they were here, with how friendly these people seemed they may well take their friendliness too far. 

He nodded, pulling the hood down from his head from the back, the material pooling around his neck, his peripheral vision and the anxious feeling when lacking it instantly relieved. He glanced back at the moving throng of people beyond the little alleyway they were stashed away into, asking, "Should we leave the cloaks with the rest of our belongings then?

:> almost done:

Saphira considered, then spoke, "I think we should keep them with us just in case. They're easy to carry or simply keep wearing - I wouldn't want an accident or malicious intent causing us to lose them since they are important. Plus you may need them for disguise should we find someone who might recognize you. Do you keep your coins in your pocket?"

They might need those as well, but then again, maybe he wanted to save them for when they really needed them. In which case, it was his to do as he wished, so she offered no advice on what he should do with them.

As she waited, she briefly wondered what kind of person his mother was, and what was the story behind this no-changing-hair-color thing. Perhaps she could ask him as they enjoyed the activities today.

He nodded in agreement, glad that she agreed that keeping the cloaks on them was the smarter move, and in response to her other question revealed the small coin purse tucked into an inner pocket of the cloak that he had sewn in the second night of the trial, nearly two weeks ago. He may trust the Mayor enough to keep his larger arms and armaments, his sleeping roll, his tent and his other belongings in her care, but the coins, star bag and medal were all on him, as they had been since the beginning. It made him feel better that he could leave at a moment's notice and still continue with his quest. 

"Thank you for your thoughts," he said, glancing back into the crowd, "Well then," he said, as a cheer rang out from somewhere in the crowd beyond - the pie eating contest was starting, perhaps. "Shall we?"

Leon intends to walk around the festival with Saphira! He pauses to look at the "art galleries" on display lining several side streets, with folk-art at the forefront; paintings were joined by amateur sculpture work, weavings, carvings, even painted pottery was on display. Some were for sale, others were just for show - others still were antiques, by the looks of them, and well cared for. There were various subjects, but the competition pieces that were on display seemed to fit the theme "tranquility", with landscapes or still life images at the forefront. 

They were offered "free samples" of some of the street food to keep them going, the vendors making a point of offering everyone small free samples so as not to show favor or special treatment to the Star Catchers (which would get them into trouble). The samples were typically of the kebab variety and were, overall, quite good. 

Midafternoon heralded the Horseshoe Competition and Archery Competition.

The competition was just as warm and friendly as the rest of the event had been... up until the horseshoes were in their hands. Then things got serious. He still didn't know what "cold dessert" he was playing for, but he was pretty sure there was some sort of grudge match going on between two of the competitors, judging by body language alone. When the horseshoes started to fly, it was obvious who had and who had not been practicing. Some kissed the metal implement for luck before tossing; two of the competitors's horseshoes actually hit the target with a satisfying ting of metal-on-metal. His... well he hadn't been that embarrassed in a long time. The horseshoe less than a foot from where he had let it go (it had nicked his wrist. Or something. He wasn't going to talk about it.), he made no eye contact as his face glowed bright red and appreciated the immediate turn to cheering for Saphira rather than making a point to focus on his... .... attempt was really going to far. 

But Saphira - her throw looked effortless. The horseshoe gracefully left her hand, arched across the playing field, and ringed around the metal spike three times before falling to the ground. A perfect throw, a perfect score. He clapped along as Mayor Bramblebrush presented the prize - ice cream - and congratulated her personally as the crowd moved from one field to the next. He wondered if she'd been playing horse shoes for long or if it was just natural talent, but they could discuss that over... Well, hopefully dinner. 

Archery was more of what he was used to. He had spent months of combined time practicing hitting marks - both in his hunting trial and military trials combined, so his confidence for this event - despite the utter disaster in the last - was pretty high. He had been the last to sign up and so was the last to go, and some of his competition were practically professionals - their marks close to bullseye as could get. It made sense if their living depended on it, and there was a very slight chance that he could manage to do as well, but he steadied his breathing, took his stance, aimed, and released... and it hit dead center. Special judging was called to examine the two bullseye, and he ended up victorious. Mayor Bramblebrush took his hand and held it skyward as the crowd cheered for him as well as they had cheered for Saphira, and he nodded his head in thanks, feeling somewhat redeemed from that flub of a horseshoe throw.

Their dinner was accounted for. 

As the crowd dispersed, moving towards a pit farther afield which he could only assume to be for mud wrestling, he tucked the tickets into an inner pocket of his cloak and turned to Saphira. "How's the prize?" he asked, referencing the ice cream.

Very Happy Feel free to time skip us to dinner or after dinner! ((If you wanted to RP dinner conversations we could RTRP it through our discord group XD))

She had never seen William embarrassed before. That had to be the highlight of her day. He actually turned red after he flubbed his Horsehoes throw, but like the lady she was, Saphira pretended not to notice anything and simply stepped up to take her turn in order to spare him the embarrassment.

And her throw was perfect. It wasn't like she had ever played the game, but... maybe all her practice throwing her spear had something to do with it? Or maybe it was just her luck, as always. Either way, the ice cream was delicious and unlike anything she had ever tasted in Shadeslake.

Watching William shine in what he did best was... magnificent, to say the least. She found herself mesmerized by the way his brow creased in concentration, the way his eyes never left the target, the effortless way he let go of the arrow just like one would release a breath. How the arrow hit the center as if it could not belong anywhere else. It was breathtaking. It took her a while to release herself from her stupor after the cold ice cream started dribbling onto her hand.

So it seemed they would have free delicious dinner.

When he approached her, she felt strangely nervous, like someone who had been caught doing something they weren't supposed to, but when he asked about the ice cream, she offered the cup to him. 

"There's not much left, but you should try it. The taste is out of this world. You can finish it if you like it."

She watched the crowd move on to other things and fidgeted with her own cloak. "Congratulations on your win, by the way. That was a beautiful shot. And you scored free dinner, for us, well done! That's sounding like it's going to be a wonderful meal, too."

As music began to drift towards them from somewhere and she watched the others began to dance, she gave him a mischievous smile.

"So, just out of curiosity... how good of a dancer are you?"

Something felt off about Saphira as she offered him her cup, but he couldn't quite put his finger on it. It was almost like she were nervous, but he had never seen her in such a state so it was hard to say - maybe she didn't enjoy sweets, or perhaps it was too cold? But as he accepted her generous offer she defended the taste, so that was probably not the case, and by that time the expression was gone from her so he had no choice but to dismiss it as maybe something he had misread. Following her gaze into the crowd, he dipped the spoon into the frozen cream and tried to spot what she was looking at, taking a polite amount of dessert and tasting it. His mouth seized at first - he hadn't had anything honestly cold in months - but then hummed appreciatively after the taste as it melted on his tongue, looking down at the cup to better pick out any telltale color. The flavor was an interesting combination. 

She congratulated him on his win and he stood straighter under her praise. "Thank you; I'm relieved it wasn't a repeat of the horseshoes, but I am glad to be able to repay you for this," he said with a small smile, taking another spoonful of dessert. "It's nice to have things with a little more flavor for a change." He took her up on her offer and finished it off just as she asked her question, and, after returning the bowl and spoon, returned to her side and observed the people coupling up to dance and tried to get a sense of the beat. How good of a dancer was he? Decent. It hadn't been his favorite lesson, but he had been taking lessons since he was seven - his mother had thought it was charming to have him dance alongside the adults at big parties. Saphira was the daughter of the Mayor of a fair-sized city; it made sense that she knew, and that daring little smile told him enough.

He offered her his hand and replied, "Fair enough; did you want to give it a try?"

Repaying one bowl of ice cream with a dinner for two seemed more like... one-upping, but she didn't point it out. As he commented about the flavor, she couldn't help but wonder if the stuff he was used to eating in Thelline were bland. If so, why? She thought the royals of all people would make taste an important part of their meal...

She didn't get a chance to ask before he left to return the empty dish, and by then she had added it into the list of things she could bring up at dinner. Later tonight. Just the two of them. That wasn't... a date at all. Surely? They'd had dinner alone for the past few nights. And lunch. And breakfast. Nothing fancy of course, but still, why should this time be different?

Seeing his offered hand, the strange butterflies-in-her-stomach feeling returned, and she took it with a grin, leading him towards the group of dancers. Dancing was something she was pretty good at, and expected him as a prince to be good at as well. The feeling of his hand in hers as always felt comforting, and she moved to the beat easily, getting lost in the music and, for a moment, became no longer Saphira the Starcatcher. She was just a girl, dancing with a boy, and there was nothing but happiness and joy.

The dance was more upbeat, the music filled with fiddle and base that listeners clapped along to - very different from what he had most of his experience in - but it was like Saphira just absorbed the steps and performed them with an obvious joy in every movement, that bright smile never leaving her face as she turned and clapped and hopped like she had been dancing this dance her entire life, though he was fairly certain this type of music wasn't all that popular around Shadeslake. The smile was like a small challenge and he rose to meet it, having fun while dancing with her as the sun dipped down towards the horizon. When finally the musicians took a break, he bowed to her like the other men bowed to their partners, and surreptitiously let out a breath as he straightened, reaching under his cloak to take off the jacket he wore beneath. 

From their they followed their noses to the barbecue restaurant and were quickly seated, given glasses of water and bread to start, and told that their meals would be out in minutes. His leather jacket on the back of the chair behind him, Leon thanked the waiter, took a long sip of water, and eyed the small loaves of bread set out for them. Decisively, he took one of them and slipped it into one of the inner self-made pockets of his cloak, "The bread should save for a few days at least," he explained, then undid the clasp and neatly shrugged the cloak off of his shoulders to rest on the jacket on the back of his chair. The hood fell a little more heavily than it looked like it should have. 

Rolling his shoulders to relieve the feeling of the cloak's weight, he straightened his white short-sleeved shirt and adjusted a royal blue neckerchief to make himself more comfortable before turning his attention back to Saphira. "So... is that dance popular back in Shadeslake?"

She couldn't remember feeling this happy and relaxed in a long time. Ironically enough, it happened when she was far away from home, with no one she grew up with or knew very well around her, and in a perilous journey that few came back from, even before the additional complications that it now entailed. She didn't know what that said about her life.

As the two of them sat down at the restaurant, her stomach gurgled softly in anticipation, having not eaten anything that smelled this good for a long time now. She raised an eyebrow in surprise when William pocketed one of the bread without hesitation, but smiled at his explanation. Everything here was for them anyway, it didn't matter when they decided to eat it. But the fact that he did it with such certainty amused her. Certainly not a very... princely behavior, but it was clever.

"Not particularly, but... I'm good with memorizing patterns and movements, and I took dancing lessons when I was little because my mother thought it was necessary for a lady. So it's not too hard to pick up a new one. I can play the piano as well, and, though I think it's a bit too pretentious, the harp."

She picked up a piece of bread, took a small bit, and popped it into her mouth. "What about you? Are you musically inclined at all?"
