She heard the sounds of the festival as they approached the town, and at first she didn't know what to make of it. The murmur of voices, the clatter of wares, the roar of laughter, the tromp of footsteps... Kitty knew it was a large gathering of people, but she didn't really understand why there would be such a thing. Lorham celebrated, but it would not have been like this—this was a spectacle for a larger town with additional infrastructure. Perhaps to city-dwellers like Leon and Saphira it may have seemed quaint in ways, but to Kitty it seemed overwhelming.

She turned to Cassandra and Shashka, stormy eyes unsure. They hadn't encountered danger like that from the bandits in many days, but still... She couldn't help making the connections. The girl from the small town hadn't quite determined how to piece together the threats they were finding out here—she understood there was some kind of pattern, but exactly how to follow it remained a mystery. She felt like she was back in the kitchen at home, tasting a sauce and trying to deconstruct what ingredients must have gone into it, so that she could decide what else to add. Saphira and Leon already understood it, whatever it is. She couldn't say that she did.

Perhaps Cassandra would fare better.

"What is that?" she asked, softly.

She never enjoyed the heat. The way it clung to skin left her feeling like she'd just left an unsatisfying bath, somehow dirtier rather than cleaner than before she began. The changing landscape helped to offset the uncomfortable feeling. Lorham being such a vast farming land, being out of the thick forests almost felt like stepping into a land closer to home, despite that fact that she'd never been further from it.

Funny how things could feel so familiar and yet be so completely different at the same time. It was this feeling she craved, this experience of something new and interesting. It was easy to keep a small smile upon her lips as she took in all of the sights.

It helped, too, that she and her traveling companions had found a calm kind of routine and middle ground with one another. The stress of a few days ago melted away into something not quite whole, perhaps, with two of their group now long gone, but something reminiscent of what she'd hoped for them all. They were a traveling party, seeing the sights and dealing with whatever came their way. Together.

Dusk began to settle around them when she heard the first sounds of a nearby town. So many sounds, far more than she'd expected. Alive and busy and full of cheer, like a whole party held for the entire town.

Despite these sounds, she didn't miss the soft voice at her side, and she looked to her pale-haired friend. "Sounds like a celebration!" Cassandra answered with a smile. There was a hint of hesitation to Kitty's expression, shadows of the past haunting the pretty slate-blue eyes. If it were a celebration of sorts, perhaps it would be the perfect way to give them all a spark of fun and break up the monotony of travel. Her mother often told her how not everyone found such adventure in it, after all.

Perhaps this town would be the best way to give Kitty kinder memories to latch on to as they continued their journey.

"Let's go see what it's all about," Cassandra continued, taking a few steps forward. She stopped soon after, however, waiting to see if Kitty and Shashka were okay with going to the town. Regardless how much she wanted to investigate—thoughts filled with grand ideas of warm food, friendly villagers with stories to tell, and exciting new games to try—she was not the sole decider of things in this group. They all had a voice in what they did as a whole.

If Cassandra was willing, so was Kitty. She hadn't completely abandoned all of her hesitation, but she could set it aside. The blonde excelled at compartmentalization, after all. This was one more opportunity to put it to the test. She continued forwards, towards the noise and the light that marked the otherwise darkening evening, her heart settled from the frantic pitter-patter because she knew that Cassandra was at her side.

It had been nice to travel together again. Although she certainly didn't dislike Shashka—she hadn't lied when she told the frequently-combative girl the same—she felt a sense of camaraderie with her hometown companion that hadn't been replicated in the newer relationship. Cassandra reminded her of home; the green-eyed young woman exuded a sense of comfort distinct from her congenial personality and mannerisms. Walking alongside gave Kitty a sense of groundedness that helped her get through harder days and the sometimes-unpleasant elements of their long journey.

She wondered what they would find; it was getting late, wasn't it? Did celebrations continue long after dark? What was this festival honoring?

As the newcomers entered town, they were exclaimed upon with excitement - "Look there, dear! More Star Catchers!!" "This is the most I've seen in ages!" "Good luck, Catchers!" "Oh! Go find Bramblebush, she'll want to greet them personally, like the others!" A large crowd had gathered outside of town where cheers rang up, but even elsewhere the town was alive with music and dancing, with displays of art painted, sculpted, and put together from natural objects. There were stores lining the streets stocked with books and groceries, a little cafe and a larger restaurant, and street vendors touting their wares. 

Upon seeing them, a kebab vendor waved them over for free samples, calling loudly so that everyone in the vicinity would hear, but the Star Catchers would get the distinct impression that there were suddenly "free samples" on account of their arrival, rather than something that had been going on at all times throughout the day.

Whatever they chose to do, they felt assured that they would be treated well and fairly by these people, to the extent that they could help, anyway.

She almost ducked behind Cassandra and Shashka at the sudden bustle over their arrival. It felt strange to be... recognized and cheered. This wasn't like their encounter with Cartman and the people of his town. He had been warm and friendly, comforting and paternal, but the others they met only followed with fading echoes of the clearly well-respected man's own attention. By contrast, these people positively bubbled over with enthusiasm, each more cheery than the last. Eyes glanced over at the kebab vendor, waving broadly. She didn't want to get anyone in trouble, but that didn't seem to be much of a risk in this type of situation, did it?

Keeping an eye out for what else might be available, Kitty moved towards the man, prepared to sample from his wares unless Cassandra indicated it would be a poor idea.

"Welcome, welcome!" the Kebab vendor cheered, glad to have caught Kitty's eye, "Come, try a sample! Best chicken kebabs in Viachia or my name isn't Sanders!" As he spoke he hastily cut the wooden kebab skewer in half (making it a generous "sample size") and held it out towards her.

The cheerfulness at their arrival took her off guard for a moment—she didn't expect every town to treat them with pity or contempt, but this celebratory tone wasn't what she expected either—but it was infectious in its apparent sincerity. Cassandra couldn't keep from smiling as she looked from one townsperson to the next. Music and chatter and smells of various foods tingled all of her senses.

It was almost as if a story had come to life right before her eyes. Things were at once similar to things she'd experience in her years, but so much more. The picture built itself before her eyes, painted details becoming sharpened and clearer with each new item she looked upon, each with a story to tell, everything as beautiful as it was surreal.

Cassandra found herself looking to Kitty from time to time, despite all of the interesting things catching her attention. She wanted to ensure that the other girl was always nearby and did not get swallowed up by the energetic crowd. They'd lost and found each other enough times during this journey so far, she did not want to repeat it again. She kept an eye on Shashka as well, but found herself not quite as careful in her observations when it came to the spitfire girl.

The lure of a free sample of food was far too much to resist, even as her eyes kept trying to take in all of the sights—were those books in the stall over there?—and her stomach grumbled appreciatively. Cassandra followed Kitty to the sample. If Leon were here, he probably would frown upon their taking of this unpaid treat. Funny, to think of him in this, as, judging from snippets of the crowds' chatter, perhaps he and Saphira passed by just recently. Maybe even they indulged in this weird food-on-a-stick.  

But Leon wasn't here right now to explain what was allowed and what was not, and the roasted food smelled absolutely wonderful. It was a sample free for everyone, after all. Besides, what harm could a bit of chicken possibly do?

"It looks delicious!" Cassandra complimented as she got closer. "It's easy to see why they're the best." She paused, glancing around at the bustling energy of the crowds around them, attempting to memorize the exact picture of happy chaos around her. "Could you tell us what kind of celebration this is? It looks like everyone is having so much fun."

When Cassandra moved forward, Kitty felt her own spirit emboldened. Regardless of everything that had happened with Leon and Saphira, Kitty still felt sure that strength in numbers—teamwork—was what they really needed. Being on her own could sometimes be exciting, and perhaps they didn't really "deserve" to share any of this with anyone, but at the same time... The possibilities increased when they were together. After all, she was a girl from Lorham. They always worked together, and that was how they survived. That was how they moved towards progress. How could everything she had known be wrong?

She also took the offered half-skewer from the man, her thanks brief but sincere. He didn't seem concerned about repercussions, and she wanted to believe that they would be okay. After all, Cassandra would take one, as well. The treat tasted as delicious as it smelled, if not more so. Although she had done her best with what they had found on their journey, the hastily-prepared survival meals couldn't compare in flavour to food cooked in a town, with seasonings and care. The smoke of the grill danced on her tongue; the chicken juicy and delicious. It felt restorative, silly as that might sound.

Kitty ate it slowly, eyes watching as Cassandra asked her questions, wondering herself what the answers might be.

Sanders wrote:
"It's our Summer Moonfest, where we celebrate the coming of age of our youngsters and honor those who helped them get to where they are - which is all of us. It takes a town, you know," he said smartly, handing over the two kebabs. "Star Catchers have been rare in years past, though; have you met the Mayor?" he quickly continued, apparently reconsidering, "Hmm... if you did, you probably wouldn't be asking me, would you? Haha!" He laughed, then cut another pair of sticks in half.

"Here," he said, offering these, "Take this Beef Bonanza sample and go find her - she's probably at the Mud Wrestling competition just outside of town -" he gave his directions, offered two of the half-skewers to Shashka, and waved them on their way.

She liked the sound of this Summer Moonfest. The thought of a joint celebration for coming-of-age fit nicely with her earlier memories of home and the importance of teamwork. It did take a village to raise a child, didn't it? Wasn't that the whole point? She ought not to have cast her opinion one way or another so quickly, but Kitty found herself liking this place, almost the same way she had decided she liked Cartman earlier in their journey. The bright honestly and openness of Sanders endeared him to her, and how could she dislike the generosity he bestowed on them? She could not. She took the "sample" with another smile and a nod, grateful for the food and his forthcoming information.

"Mayor, then?" she asked Cassandra, ready to learn more about this festival and the town they had happily found themselves in. What a nice change of pace!

This Summer Moonfest sounded beautiful, a thought bolstered even more by the sheer amount of celebratory cheer around her. It reminded her of home, in a way, despite the fact that Lorham did not have any such specific celebration as this. It reminded her of the exact values that she'd been so keen on instilling within their little group, before everything crumbled apart.

Hearing Kitty's suggestion, Cassandra nodded, smile still on her lips. "Sounds like a good plan," she agreed, taking a step towards the direction the kebab seller had given. "I wonder what kind of competition Mud Wrestling is."

Already her mind conjured up grand ideas of monsters made of thick mud, strong and nimble and capable of melding into any shape. The hero would have to wrestle against these monsters, finding a way to adapt against the malleable wet mud. A difficult victory, to be sure, one that only the truest of heroes would be able to achieve.

She knew, from experience, that such fantasies often were far more elaborate than the reality. But she was itching to find out the truth, to try her hand with this Mud Wrestling, whatever it may turn out to be.

Cassandra glanced towards the stall with the books, a new kind itch sweeping over her. It wouldn't hurt to just look, would it? To touch the hidden tales written upon those crisp pages? She didn't have anything to purchase one, of course, but she was used to that. But even simply glancing at the first few words was enough to send her mind racing with new images and ideas. "And maybe after, we could come back here to check out these stalls."

Mud Wrestling Competition wrote:
And Michael the Terrible Goes Dowwwwwwn!” An enthusiastic Viachian enthused in a grandiose voice as a man – presumably Michael “the Terrible” – eats Mud while his opponent flexes and wanders around the mud pit that that had been constructed. “One more point for Camelia the Righteous and she’ll be moving to the Semi Finals! That’s a score of 2-to-1; truly this year’s competition is lasing longer than last year’s!
 
Mayor Bramblebrush cheered with the rest of the town, standing beside the owner of the expensive and only Luxury Spa establishment in Viachia and laughing along with everyone else. Far to the side was the “showers”, wherein the losing contestants waited underneath the giant wooden bucket for the water to be dropped to clean them off, but by the way the contest was going, that could be a while. Typically it didn’t take long to get to the 3 points needed to move on, but the number of contestants this year was far beyond the usual number.
 
A tap on her shoulder made her turn to hear the whispered words of one of her closer associates, who reported that another group of Star Catchers had arrived and were heading her way. She smiled and thanked him – what a wonderful way to welcome them to the SummerMoon festival! Mud wrestling was honestly just such a joy.
 
Camelia grabbed Michael’s leg and tugged, and the younger man’s feet slid out from beneath him, ending the match. Cheers erupted, hers not the quietest, as both contestants were pulled out of the pit via rope and the hands of their “entourage”. The next match would soon begin; she hoped the trio of young adults would make it in time!
 
A second tap had her duck down a little to hear the whispered words of a shorter man who, of all things, wore a bib smeared with barbecue sauce; she listened, and her eyes grew wide. Quickly thanking him, she straightened and considered her role and what took precedence, and decided she owed it to her constituents and valued community members to remain where she was. She could re-greet their unexpected guest after the match, while the poker tournament was being set up in the Stampede.
 
When the trio of Star Catchers arrived, Mayor Bramblebush greeted them enthusiastically, introducing them to the city in much the same way she had earlier to Saphira and “Leon”, and asked if any of them were inclined to join in the mud wrestling competition. It was nearing the last round, but she was confident her people would not shy away from another competitor or three. As she awaited their answer the last semifinal match ended, and preparations were made for the finals; as the crowd cheered heads turned back towards the town, and as she posed her invitation to join in the last round for the trip to the spa, her eyes wandered back towards the buildings and mentally sighed, preparing an apology from the people of Viachia as another small crowd gawked at the two star catchers making their way towards her.

He had thanked the owner for their consideration and their waiter for his trouble, complimented the chef, and shrugged back into his jacket and cloak, keeping his hood down and eyes forward as he and Saphira left the restaurant to a hush of whispers and a few brave calls wishing them luck with finding the star. Leaving the restaurant they ran into a line of people outside, all eager to dine and, if the hurriedly hidden glances were any indication, catch a glimpse. He nodded his head when someone met his eye, but quickly after kept his eyes focused beyond them, towards the field he and Saphira had left less than an hour ago. When he sighted the Mayor, three familiar forms in blue cloaks were with her.

Two birds, one stone, or so the saying went.

It was lucky that the other group happened to be with the Mayor when they went looking for her. He kept his pace steady, mentally preparing what he would say when he reached them.

She followed William back towards the mayor, noticing that she was standing with the other three they had left behind. It was a shame that this competition was never going to be what it was supposed to be anymore, and that she would have to endure the loudmouth rude girl they had somehow picked up again, despite the fact that she'd left them in the dust - honestly, what was wrong with Lorham people? - but at this point, she had given her word to support William in his endeavor, and for that she would sacrifice anything, especially considering the impact it could have on Esoria as a whole. This was for her and everyone else's good as well.

She lagged just a tiny bit behind William, letting him go ahead, since they agreed he would be the one doing the talking anyway. Maybe if she just smirked mysteriously the entire time, that would drive Shashka crazy and gave her some semblance of satisfaction.

She had a suspicion of what "mud wrestling" might entail, Kitty's idea less fanciful and interesting than Cassandra's. As they approached the area, she found that she was pretty much correct—wrestling, in mud. The mayor's greeting and her invitation to join the contest served enough to encourage the pale-haired girl from Lorham.

"I'll join," she replied. She didn't feel too tired after their day, and although a "spa" didn't really mean anything to her, she liked that there was an opportunity to earn something. It had been a while she she had been able to really work her way towards an end in the way that had been so much of her life back home. This sounded familiar, and that was enough for the petite teenager.

Kitty wondered if Cassandra would be interested, but she was determined to join even if it was just her. Following instructions, she quickly changed form her travel-worn clothing into the simple burlap garment provided for the contest. She wasn't sure that her... required name was all that... intimidating... but she had tried, hadn't she? Maybe "Catherine the Great" would be good enough.

Seeing the gathered crowd, the energy practically oozing from the area, it would have been impossible to decline the offer to test her mettle with these other contestants. She'd wrestled with her brothers often enough in the past, though with considerably less mud involved, so surely this wouldn't be too different? Plus, it looked like good-natured fun. Who wouldn't want to give it a go?

She grinned when Kitty said she'd join, and Cassandra quickly added in her own assent, eyes looking from face to face of both crowd and contestants alike. So many stories lay hidden amongst these people. It was a shame she couldn't spend days luxuriously learning about them all. Maybe some day she'd have the opportunity to come back and ask them.

The change of clothes was a blessing--who knew how much damage such thick mud would do to the few bits of clothing they had with them on this journey? The mud itself was no problem, at least. Years of working in the fields left her well-versed in maneuvering around in mud of all kinds of viscosities.

She grinned and cheered on Kitty as her friend began her match. It was a close one, her opponent getting the upper hand but in the end, Kitty came out to be the victorious hero. Cassandra whooped and clapped. She'd had no doubts at all that Kitty would win her round, but it was still exciting to see it play out in front of her.

Then it was her own turn, and Cassandra felt the quickening pace of her heart. It wasn't quite to the beat during battle, battleaxe her only defense and barrier between her opponent, but it was similar to a lesser degree. Already a story began to build itself in her head as she got ready for her match. She devoted all of her attention to this one goal as her heart warmed with excitement.

She took a moment to catch her breath, her cheeks flushed by the intensity of the exercise. Her pale hair hung in wet clumps, her face now streaked with mud. The burlap attire felt stranger now that it was soaked through with moisture and heavy with dirt. It felt strange and slick under her hands, but not entirely foreign. She vaguely recalled a task from back home, corralling escaped pigs that had gotten into another farm's mud patch. It certainly couldn't have hurt that Kitty had participated in her fair share of roughhousing with her brothers and sisters.

She turned to watch Cassandra's match, bright eyes curious, hoping that her teammate would find strength and luck on her side.

She stood to the side, cheering Cassandra on, and in the excitement of the match she didn't have time to notice the mud slowly drying uncomfortably on her exposed skin and solidifying the clumps in her hair. Kitty believed in Cassandra—the girl was from Lorham, after all! Wasn't that proof enough of her usefulness in hard work? The dark-haired teenager counted herself as "bookish", but that didn't make her a waif—not in the farming community. Still, her heart clenched with concern as the two young woman faced off in the mudpit... She held her breath as the match continued, only releasing it when Cassandra was declared champion.

...Only to realize that meant Cassandra would be her opponent for the final round. Kitty blinked at the revelation, blue-gray eyes confused. She eyed the other mud-splattered girl, the one she had traveled with for so many days. The one who knew more about her than anyone else on this journey. Something about wrestling against this particular person made her feel uneasy, but she couldn't put her finger on why.

Well, she had to do her best to set that aside. She had to give it her all; she couldn't offer any less than the good effort she was known for.

"Fair fight?" she asked softly of Cassandra with an awkward smile, preparing for the match to begin.

He approached Mayor Bramblebush on her side opposite Shashka but did not engage her, instead choosing to quietly watch the match. Interrupting her mayoral duties was impolite, and as Kitty - or Catherine the Great - was competing, it would only be rude to draw attention away from her, especially with how well she was doing. Mud wrestling delivered on its promise of being dirty, but Kitty seemed able to adjust, finishing the round in a tiebreaker she easily managed. He clapped with the rest of the crowd; honestly, he wondered how badly he had originally misjudged Kitty. She seemed capable of taking care of herself if worst came to worst, despite her petite stature and quiet disposition. As a rope was thrown down and the combatants removed from the pit, the Mayor leaned towards him. 

"Starcatcher Leon," she said with a hint of amusement, "Good to see you; how might I be of assistance?"

The amusement told him that she had probably already heard but was giving him the opportunity to confess regardless. He appreciated it. "I'm afraid I may owe you an apology," he began, keeping his eyes forward as he spoke as apologies made only for sake of appearances did not merit eye contact in any political theater, "When we were introduced earlier I used a nickname rather than my proper title. I hope you'll forgive me for my choice."


"Think nothing of it," the Mayor replied positively, "Privacy can be hard to come by and I regret that you lost yours in a time before your choosing. I hope you'll forgive the people of Viachia - it has been a long time since we have had a Royal guest.

She phrased her response as a mirror of his, practically making his response for him. "Think nothing of it.

Cassandra was lowered into the pit and they watched the match, the Mayor cheering loudly and enthusiastically while he clapped appreciatively. Cassandra's match was a lot shorter than Kitty's; after a first tie, the other girl of Lorham seemed to catch a feel for the nuances of the sport and quickly subdued her opponent, winning her own match. The announcer cheered and built up both newcomers as Kitty was reintroduced to the "arena."

"How can I help you, Prince William?" the Mayor asked as the Final was prepared, eyeing him with a calculated smile. 

"In light of recent revelations," he began, watching for her reaction out of the corner of his eye, "I'd like to remove my name from the list of participants in the card tournament."

"Mighty kind of ya," she replied with an honest look of appreciation, holding up a hand for her assistant to follow the instructions. "I mean no disrespect when I say that your taking part might have put a damper on the evening for some."

"And Miss Saphira?" the assistant prompted; he let her answer for herself.

The wet mud felt cool against her skin, but the rush of victory burned away any onsetting chill. She gave her opponent a handshake and a smile as the match ended, already excited for the next. The adrenaline still coursed through her veins, and she felt ready to take on the world. Lucky, that she was set to have another match right then and there while that fire still warmed her from the inside out.

Though that feeling of luck petered out when she realized she'd be facing off against Kitty of all people. A strange turn of events, when all she wanted to do was protect this girl. Competing in a bit of muddy wrestling hadn't quite been on her list of ways to accomplish that. It would be interesting, still, to wrestle against Kitty. They were both born into similar lives, their regular day-to-day including long hours of hard labor. It would be a challenge, an exciting challenge, but somehow it didn't feel quite right at the same time, like a story that took a turn she hadn't wanted.

Kitty's voice was quiet, when she questioned for a fair fight, though Cassandra could hear nothing else despite the sounds of the crowd surrounding them. A bit of mud sat caked on Kitty's cheek, hair dripping with dirty water, pale messy and tangled from her excursions. She wore what was nothing more than a mud covered sack, functional but ultimately unflattering. Her slate-blue eyes were bright, beautiful in the twilight, and her lop-sided smile caused Cassandra's heart to skip a beat as a realization washed over her with clear-cut certainty.

Heat raced to her cheeks after that, but Cassandra returned the smile, trying to ignore the pitter-patter of her heart. "Fair fight," she agreed with a grin before taking a ready stance.

It wasn't fair at all—the very idea of handling Kitty in such a way caused her to both balk indignantly and blush even harder—but she'd do her very best against Kitty if that was what the other girl wanted. At least the thrill of competition, the crisp rush of adrenaline, were a good distraction from her own thoughts.

She watched the mud wrestling match with both interest and concern - how could anyone willingly get in the mud to wrestle each other? Something was surely wrong with these people - though she was not surprised to see both people from Lorham participating. It was just as well that they were into it. They did seem pretty strong, despite all their strange attitude and naivety, so she supposed that was one good thing about all that manual labor they must be used to doing.

William and the mayor were conversing, and as he pulled officially from the card game and the assistant turned their attention to her, she spoke, "I would like to do the same. Plenty of people saw me dining with him, and he said I'm not a forgettable face," she said teasingly as she glanced at him.

The wrestling match continued, and she was not surprised to see Cassandra win it. The girl had been carrying Charles with her all the way to those highwaymen's camp. Saphira knew she was strong. And she continued to prove her usefulness in little ways. Although she hadn't been much help with the bear, perhaps with better luck she could be in future.

She realized only when they began to grapple in earnest that she had rarely been so close in contact with Cassandra, even though they had traveled together for so long and even shared a place to sleep. She could see the brightness of the other girl's pale green eyes, brilliant despite her mud-streaked face and hair. It reminded her of the early spring, seeing the first telltale shoots peeking from dark, silent dirt before the plants began to grow and flowers rose to bud. Kitty understood that this was a type of beauty—the kind she knew best—the kind most often seen in their now-distant home. It was funny to think that the beautiful could be found even here, down in a mud pit of a strange place.

Kitty did her best to keep true to the promise made here. She followed the rules of the competition, and she did not hold herself back merely because they were schoolmates. She would never have hurt Cassandra, but she certainly wouldn't cede when they had both agreed to enter and participate. It would be unfair to the town; it would reflect poorly on both of them.

Her first move did not take into account how much taller Cassandra was in this type of contest, but she quickly recovered, holding her own and then managing to overpower the other girl. She tried to keep her mind focused solely on the contest of brawn, to ignore all of the other bits of information her senses picked up and tried to intrude with: the comforting warmth of the other girl's skin, the shine of her eyes—determined and passionate, the grace of her movements... She lost the stability of her footing slightly, the mud slick beneath her feet, and soon the match had ended—with Cassandra as victor.

Kitty didn't feel disappointed: they had both tried their best. She did feel a bit nervous, though—perhaps just the fading adrenaline.

"Congratulations," she offered, sincere, as she accepted the rope out of the pit.

She officially struck her name from the list, adding a personal note to the end that drew his attention to her immediately; it was clear from her expression that she meant it as a tease, probably without malicious intent, but his mind raced as to whether he needed to defend such a position to the Mayor to diffuse any connotations that could inadvertently be made -

"Oh?" The Mayor commented, quirking a brow - but then the fight started and she turned her entire attention to the arena, cheering enthusiastically.

Saved by the starting bell. He let out a small breath of relief, clapping at the right times as the Starcatchers from Lorham faced off against each other, but while he faced forward his eyes were on Saphira. She was... different, surrounded by people. A little less open, a little more... mischievous, for a word? She liked to tease him and, perhaps, make things just a little more difficult; he could handle it, but it was a swap from the people he usually associated with and a switch from how she had been for the past week. It was interesting, in a diversionary way; like he'd have to stay on his toes to keep up with her, which, despite everything else he had going on, actually made him interested rather than dreading the additional load. He had handled public meet-and-greets before, but never with someone like her.
