Belinda

 

Belinda barely moved her head in acknowledgement of Cinnamon and watched her walk away. She sat down and sighed quietly. It might be awhile before anything happens, maybe I SHOULD go do something. She was a bit hungry, and going to a cafe couldn't be more boring than sitting around on a bench in a hotel. She got up lazily and walked out the door. As she passed a bush, she paused and peered at it. Maybe I can find a spider or something. Those are always fun, spinning a little web in my hooves or on my wing. I'd settle for a lizard, or even a cricket. She gently pushed aside leaves, not wanting to scare away anything lurking. She smiled maliciously at a sudden thought. Maybe a pony or two at the cafe are scared of critters, that could be fun.

Emerald Gaze.

 

Emerald looked at the candle for a second before looking back at Sunset.

 

"Oh but I couldn't, could I?" She looked around briefly, a suorised and slightly sheepish smile of her face. "Or... well, are you quite certain? Such a dear - I'm afraid I don't have anything to offer in return right now..."

 

Tittering to herself, she inspected ylthe candle and its curious colours intently. Certainly, if it worked as described it would prove useful in several potential situations - not least of all it's actual purpose of helping her relax. Perhaps she would light it tonight - she had been rather tense recently.

 

"It's quite beautiful - the candle, that is. And one simply lights it as normal? Exquisite!"

 

Glancing around at another somewhat famiilar voice, the diplomat noted the return of Aero. She blinked, before smiling and nodding in greeting.

 

"Darling Sunset here was just telling me about her work - she appears to be every bit as talented as she is kind." She noted, sliding a sideways glance at the mare in question. "Would you mind keeping it for me dear? Just until we return to the hotel: I left my bags behind and wouldn't want it to get spoiled before tonight.

Aero Wind

 

@@Midnight Scribbler, @,

Hearing that the current topic was Sunset's work, Aero looked to Sunset with a grin and excitedly said 'Oh, we're talking about your candles, Sunset? Before, we couldn't exactly talk about it since Shadowhide was there, but now I'm happy to hear all about your candles! Were you and Emerald talking about any candles in particular?' Maybe he'd want to buy one after hearing about them. But this is meant to be a vacation, after all. Sunset might not want to make any enchanted candles until the vacation is over.

Shadowhide

 

@@Evilshy,

It was much sooner than expected when Shadowhide ran into a familiar face. Before she reached the closest shop, she saw Belinda, who was... intently searching a bush. Normally, Shadowhide would simply pass Belinda without saying anything, maybe with just a quick nod as a greeting. But this was unusual behaviour. Most ponies don't search through bushes in the middle of a town. But then again, most ponies don't have a pet snake they let coil around them in public, so perhaps this is normal for Belinda. Best way to find out is to ask. Belinda probably won't mind a quick conversation. 'What are you looking for?' Shadowhide asked her.

Belinda

 

Belinda cringed slightly and prepared a snappy remark, but stopped short when she found a small garden spider. She smed warmly and whispered to it.

"Hey there little guy, don't worry. You're safe."

 

She held the spider up and showed it to Shadowhide, in a completely different mood from normal. "See? A little garden spider. He's so cute!" Her smile was genuine, and even her eyes were warmer than normal.

 

Somewhat terrified at being picked up and, the spider jumped off her hoof and began letting itself down gently, but quickly, in a line of silk. Belinda quickly outstretched a wing. The spider landed on it and scuttled between two feathers, hiding. Belinda chuckled and very carefully retracted her wing, so as not to disturb him further.

    Belle

 

@@Midnight Scribbler,@@Scribblegroove,@@Golbez,

 

Apny like Belle would most likely be scared the the mears sharp teeth. But lucky for her that she had a friends that a set of sharp teeth as well. So she wasn't that scared. And she also understood how others in the acting business were when it came to their performances. Which strangely calmed Belle down a little. She started thinking of her times working with the actors who were playing in some of her movies.

 

She quickly wrote down a note for the mare. Wen she was done she hold it up for her to read.

 

"I understand. You and your sister daughter must take great pride into what they do. It's natural to want to make sure everything is spot on when the curtain is pulled up. I'm a screenplay and script writer, and I learn the preparation actors do to make sure their  performances perfect.  So I'll be looking forwards to when the show will be ready.

 

And I'm sure miss Harmony and Tragedy's performance will be nothing but fantastic."

 

Belle had a smile under her scarf, even though it was heard to see.

@,

(FINALLY GOT OVER WRITERS BLOCK! YEAH!)

 

Bittersweet strapped shut her saddle bag and smiled with excitement. She didn't really even take the time to look at the titles of the books just yet she was so giddy. Clearly almost unable to wait any longer to get to reading these books she began to scout out the library for a comfortable spot to read. Though most of the spots she found gave her a rather unsettling feeling that she just couldn't understand, or she could hear other's speaking about things that she, quite frankly, didn't care about. After a few minutes of cantering around she decided that it'd probably be best if she just left to find somewhere more isolated and less freaky. With this is mind she trotted up to Red Cask. 

 

"Umm.. excuse me, mister Red Cask?" She attempted to get the stewards attention. "Is it okay if I leave and go to the inn, perhaps?" She questioned, with a shy smile on her face.

Cherry perked up a little upon seeing Mirror, wrapping her own hooves around the magicians neck as Mirror hugged her.

"It was great! The coach was packed by the time we started making our way back." The red mare beamed at Mirror excitedly before her face changed to sympathetic smile.

 

"I'm sorry I took so long Mirror, you must have been so worried, Gemma said you ran off to hide so I was worried something had happened to you," Cherry opened her wings to hover up to meet Mirror at eye level, being a slender mare the magician was slightly more taller than Cherry was, she reached a hoof under the unicorns chin and gently directed Mirrors face to look at her with the same sympathetic smile,"Mirror, are you ok?"

Red Cask

@@FirstPonySpectre@@,

 

"Very well, I shall escort you out. Please, I ask that you excuse me for just a moment." Red Cask replied. The stallion performed an exceptionally rote and reserved bow before quickly walking in the direction of the other guests. It wasn't long before he found Emerald, Aero, and Sunset. 

 

"Pardon the interruption. Lady Bittersweet has requested to go back to leave the mansion. If any of you would like to leave as well, now is the time. For those of you who choose to stay, if any, I ask that you remain here in the library until I return." Red Cask turned around and began walking back to the exit where Bittersweet stood. 

 

Gemma & Lapis

@@Gloomfury@@Scribblegroove,

 

Gemma politely waited until Belle had finished writing on her notepad. She must admit that she was at least a tad curious as to what the mare was doing. A soft gasp echoed throughout the theater which drew the attention of her sister. Lapis walked nearer to Belle so that she could read the message herself. 

 

"Oh, why thank you, Miss Belle. Its quite a relief that your so understanding about the situation. I promise you, that despite their age they are highly skilled actors. They've been practicing every day since they were fillies. We taught them everything we knew. " Lapis smiled, no small amount of pride in her voice.

 

"And then some. I'm afraid their friends don't take the arts as seriously as Harmony and Tragedy do, though they might just lack the same talent." Gemma added while her sister nodded in agreement. "I'm afraid we are running out of time. It was a pleasure to meet the two of you. Please, let either us or Steward Cask know if there is anything we can do to make your visit more comfortable. Miss Cherry and Mirror should meet the two of you outside soon. I'm sure they're just finishing up."

 

The two mares begin escorting the two of you toward the exit. Once the two of you are by the exit Gemma and Lapis say their farewells and trot back into the theater.

 

"Lapis, I think the poor mare's a mute!" you hear Gemma mutter to her sister. 

 

"Poor thing, we should have thought about that possibility. We should let the others know..."

 

((OOC : I'm sorry for the delay. Scribbler is currently in process of moving. Hopefully by Monday he'll be back.

Shadowhide

 

@@Evilshy,

Seeing a genuine smile on Belinda's face was unexpected, but definitely welcome. It's a relief knowing that there's something that can actually cheer her up. Since she has a pet snake and is excited by the spider that's now on her wing, it seems she really likes animals in general. Unfortunately, Shadowhide doesn't share this interest. But since it's the only way Shadowhide knows to keep the otherwise uncaring Belinda happy, she has a good reason to continue the conversation on this topic anyway.

 

'Yes, he is... cute,' Shadowhide replied, although her voice was a bit too monotone to sound like she meant it. Faking interest sure isn't easy. One of the easiest ways to look interested is to ask questions about it, so that's probably the best thing to do now. Looking at the spider on her wing, she continued 'Do you know what species it is?' Shadowhide didn't particularly care about the answer, but it was worth talking about it to see Belinda happy.

Aero Wind

 

@@SilverHeart,

Aero found it a little funny how Red Cask formally referred to Bitter as 'Lady Bittersweet', but he refrained from laughing since it would probably be rude to Red Cask to do so. 'I wonder if he'll ever call me "Sir Aero Wind"?' he thought. But just as Aero was about to reply to him, Red Cask turned and walked back to 'Lady Bittersweet'. Aero will go over to join them shortly.

 

Aero looked back to Emerald and Sunset. 'Well, this is the only book I'm getting' - Aero lifted the book he was holding to emphasize it - 'so I'll be leaving now too. Are you two coming as well, or are you going to stay here?'

Dove Marigold

 

"Ah, sure! I.. wouldn't mind that," Dove said, somewhat strained. She meant to go back to the dorm and count how many bits she got from that mare earlier. Unfortunately she'll have to stick around with Poppy more - she can't deny or she'd look suspicious. "Ah, why don't we go and find the others? I was a little worried I'm boring you," Dove said hurriedly, trotting in place.

Scribblegroove

@@SilverHeart

@@Gloomfury

 

Scribblegroove had been silent as they were escorted out of the Theater. Even though he understood that they weren't supposed to see the performances on beforehand, he was quite disappointing. This kind of secrecy wouldn't be necessary in the usual theater, and he couldn't remember the staff of the Canterlot Concert hall so cautiously preventing interested individuals from having a look now and then. Of course this theater wasn't the exact same thing, but he reckoned they had some kind of surprise waiting for them that they were this strict with the admittance.

 

And then they were outside once more. It had been a short trip, and perhaps they weren't too far behind on the others. "Well... thank you and goodbye I suppose..." He muttered to the two mares retreated back into the theater. He was tempted to ask if he could come back at a later time so he could  meet the performers as they weren't practicing, but perhaps it would be better to wait anyway. Looking at Belle, he inspected her truly for the first time. Of course he had seen her before, but he hadn't really been paying attention.

 

"Lets go to the hotel shall we, perhaps there are some good rooms left." He said to her, and he began moving himself. As Gemma had mentioned, and he had noted himself as well, Belle seemed like a shy pony. Usually it was best to take the initiative with things when hanging around with characters of that sort, both in conversations as in actions, such as deciding to move towards the hotel and finding a room. She'd voice, or in her case write her objections if she happened to have them.

 

Which left him wondering what story she had for her strange way of communicating. It seemed she was a mute, but it wouldn't hurt to ask. "So... I don't want to seem rude, but I'm actually quite curious why you constantly write things down... How come you don't speak like the rest of us?" He decided not to pretend to feel sorry for her. He had the experience that usually ponies which were impaired one way or another didn't want to be pitied or treated differently. He'd find out for himself if his question posed to be a sensitive subject for Belle.

Sunset Glow

 

Sunset smiled as Emerald looked over her new gift. She seemed to be quite receptive, which made Sunset happy. "Of course, I'll keep it for you in my bag. When we get back, I can give it to you to keep in your room perhaps." Sunset replied, and moved to replace the candle into her bag for later, when she was surprised to hear questions from beside her about her work. Turning her head, she noticed Aero Wind had appeared next to her, making her jump slightly. "Oh my." She giggled. "It seems we're all sneaking up on one another today.. Well, yes actually this candle here" She held the candle up so Aero could see it. "This one is enchanted to relax you and help you sleep." She explained, happy to talk about her work finally. Though it seemed the time came short at the moment, as Red Cask made his way over, and announced his leave with Bittersweet.
She glanced about at the others. Aero had made it known he was ready to head back, and she hadn't found anything of particular interest, so she looked back to Emerald. "Well, I'm ready to head back, if you are. I'm happy to stick around though if you plan to stay." Sunset said, silently hoping Emerald was also ready to move along with the rest. There was a lot left to explore around the town as yet, and she wanted to get as much exploring in as she could. If nothing else, just to get an idea of what she wanted to do at a later time. Perhaps the others had some interesting things to share as well.

Cherry perked up a little upon seeing Mirror, wrapping her own hooves around the magicians neck as Mirror hugged her.

"It was great! The coach was packed by the time we started making our way back." The red mare beamed at Mirror excitedly before her face changed to sympathetic smile.

 

"I'm sorry I took so long Mirror, you must have been so worried, Gemma said you ran off to hide so I was worried something had happened to you," Cherry opened her wings to hover up to meet Mirror at eye level, being a slender mare the magician was slightly more taller than Cherry was, she reached a hoof under the unicorns chin and gently directed Mirrors face to look at her with the same sympathetic smile,"Mirror, are you ok?"

MIRROR IMAGE

@@Golbez,

 

"I-uh I'm fine." Mirror slightly jerked her head to the left which broke her eye contact with Cherry. "And I didn't run away!" She added hastily.

 

The unicorn cleared her throat whils backing out of reach of Cherry's hoof. "I'm just...a little tired, but I'm glad you're back, Cherry." She said with a smile. it seemed like she was eager to avoid the earlier topic.

 

Mirror suddenly stepped forward and gave Cherry a quick nuzzle. "I'm ready to leave when you are. We didn't get to practice but...that might be for the best."

 

 

@@Windbreaker, @,

 

The cafe you've entered is well-lit by five large windows. There are three unlit lanterns hanging from the ceiling. There are several tables evenly spread around a hearth. Each table has several pillows laid around it. Just like with the hotel the furniture looks brand new when compared to the wooden walls of the building.

 

From the entrance you can hear two voices in another room behind counter. You can't hear what is being said but you can tell that one voice belongs to a mare and the other belongs to a stallion.

Belinda

 

 

Belinda tried to look at the spider a little more closely, but he was fairly well hidden. "Well, I didn't get a very close look, but it think it's a Crowned Orbweaver. Or maybe a Spotted Orbweaver if it's female, the males are a more solid brown. But I think this is a male, he's kinda small and didn't have his own web." At this point she mostly rambling to herself, thinking out loud, somewhat excitedly. "Could've been a recently hatched spiderling, but I don't think it's the right season for this species..."

 

She suddenly looked up, her expression a bit confused, a bit suspicious. "But what do you care? I thought you didn't like critters?"

Belle

 

@@Scribblegroove

 

Belle froze even though she kept walking next to the stallion. She knew someone was going to ask sooner or later. She just didn't expect to be asked by a stallion who didn'tre look at her twice when she entered the carriage not to long ago. She thought Cherry would ask, but she never even looked at her scarf and just accepted it. A small smile made it's way on Belle's covered mouth.

 

After a  bit she took a few breaths. She couldn't stop just to write the stallion a note and then start up walking again. No, she felt like she should give her notepad a rest for a bit. 

 

Belle Used a hoop to pull her scarf from her mouth and just let it stay around her neck. She rubbed her cheeks, mouth and chin till they felt less itchy. Her face twitched a few times from holding in her tics. She didn't want a foul word to be the first thing the stallion heard from her mouth.

 

After one or two breath she started to speak in her beautiful, Prench/Cajun accent. "I am sorry. It has been a while since someone as ask me this." He blush made its way onto her cheeks. I has been a while since she has talked to anyone with her own voice. Let alone a stallion. "You see I ha-"Her face twitched." I have a condition that makes me shout obscene words without my control. I cov-"He face twitched again." I cover my mouth so I can muffle my shouts without having to hold them back each time. It's like holding in a sneeze, it do-"Twitch." Doesn't feel good when you hold it in but it feels better when it's out. But I mostly cover up because I do not want to upset or offend anyone." Her head went down along with her eyes.

Emerald.

 

Nodding graciously, Emerald quickly lifted the books and proceeded to replace them on the shelves. She would have liked to smuggle the battered one away to inspect further, but hadn't brought her back with her.

 

She considered slipping it into Sunsets, but decided that any benefits would be unlikely to balance out the risk of making an enemy so early on.

 

"Certainly my dear." She chimed brightly as she did. "Was there anywhere in particular you were hoping to visit?" Glancing aside, she also adressed her other companion. "What about you, Aero? Did you have any plans in mind?

Shadowhide

 

@@Evilshy,

Looks like the question worked very well. Belinda continued excitedly talking about the spider for a little while, and Shadowhide simply listened with no interruptions. Sure, she didn’t exactly care about or even understand most of what Belinda was talking about. But it was clear that this was her passion and she knew a lot about it. Who knows, she might end up learning a bit about it too if she’s sees Belinda often, just like how being around Aero Wind has caused her to learn a bit about weather.

 

Shadowhide probably didn’t sound interested enough, because Belinda soon picked up on it and asked her about it. Shadowhide saw no reason to hide anything, so looking back at Belinda, she responded 'True, I don't like critters. I continued the conversation regardless because you were excited about it. You sound very knowledgeable about these animals. But would you rather talk about something else instead?'

Aero Wind

 

@@Midnight Scribbler, @,

Aero looked at the candle Sunset showed him. 'These enchanted candles are really interesting! But I don't have any sleeping problems, so I don't think that one would be too useful for me.' Aero remembered hearing them say something about Sunset holding onto the candle for Emerald when Aero arrived, which made Aero wonder. 'Is Emerald buying this candle from you?' Aero then turned to Emerald. 'You having trouble sleeping, Emerald?'

 

When Emerald asked Aero about what his plans are, he briefly looked towards the ground in thought, then looked back at Emerald and replied 'Not really. Looking at the map, there's a lot of things to do here! I think the next thing I'd want to do once I leave the library is to just fly around the town to see where everything is and understand the town's layout. But, well, none of you are pegasi, so you can't exactly join me in doing so. But if either of you have your own plans, I'll be happy to join you instead of flying on my own!

Cherry tilted her head to one side and offered Mirror a sympathetic smile, she could tell her friend wasn't at her "peak" at the moment, so rather than push it further and ask why, the red mare opted to simply leave her alone about her rehearsal.

 

"You do look a little worn...come on, let's head back to our room, maybe I can introduce to some if our new friends hmm?...if you feel up to it of course," Cherry turned around and began to lead Mirror out of the hall and back down the stairs as she spoke.

 

Making their way through the backstage, Cherry stopped as she turned around to face the tall unicorn again,"Hey, do you think you'd feel up to Dinner with...uugh, what is that?" Cherry frowned in disgust as she looked at Mirror, or rather her cloak, leaning closer to look at a specific spot more closely.

 

Up along side Mirrors neck a very small green blob of mucus could be seen splattered against the mares cloak, contrasting against the cloaks colour made it visibly stick out,"Now how did that there, it wasn't there before so..." Cherry paused abruptly, looking wide eyed up at Mirror with her mouth agap slightly, she glanced down reaching a hoof up to stretch her black and red streaked mane slightly...and in short got the shock of her life.

 

"Oh...my...GOSH!!" Now mixed within Cherry's mane, sure enough, was more of the horrid mucus stuck within the mare's mane.

"Somepony put their SNOT in my maaaane!! Eeeeeeeww ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew ew eeeeeewww," Cherry cringed as hopped from one hoof to the other in a distressed manner, clearly a little upset of this discovery.

 

"Who would do thaaaaat? Now I have to go and rinse it out and clean it throughly!"

Poppy took a moment to take in the decor. It was fantastic. The newer furniture seemed an odd choice, but there was probably a good reason behind it. She beckoned for Dove to follow her, starting to enjoy herself more and more as she looked around the place. But her curiosity was piqued upon hearing the voices in the back. She moved closer to the counter to try and hear what the voices were saying.

Mirror gave an internal with of relief once it was clear Cherry was willing to not bring up the rehearsal again. There wasn't much to say about it anyway....

 

Meeting new ponies wasn't exactly what Mirror had in mind but she'd probably have to meet them sooner or later. "I guess we can do that. If we run into any of them on the way back." Mirror trailed off as she followed behind Cherry. It really wasn't something she had wanted to do but being other ponies would probably be good for Cherry at the least.

 

Mirror stopped waking when Cherry stopped to turn around. The Pegasus began to say something about dinner and paused mid sentence, her face twisted in disgust. Mirror wanted to ask what was wrong but found her voice was caught in her throat. instinctively, she looked down. The mucus on her cloak was at such an angle that Mirror couldn't see it. None of her burns were showing. They were still carefully hidden behind her cloak and mask. Even without the ability to use her magic she was still capable of covering everything up. She looked back up to watch Cherry inspect her mane.

 

"Ewwww. That's disgusting." Mirror whined. "Oh Celestia, it didn't get on me did it!" It wasn't a question so much as a realization. Cherry had been looking at her when she decided to look at her mane.

 

"Let's just-" Mirror inhaled and then exhaled quickly, "Let's just go to our room. If we hurry we can clean up."

 

 

[/b]@Windbreaker,

 

As you near the counter the two voices become clearer. From the way they're speaking to each other you can tell they don't know that they have company.

 

"Look, Rosey. I know that you're kind of frustrated about this whole thing but we have to endure for just a few weeks. I'd really appreciate it if you would at least try to enjoy this." The voice you could hear was the stallion's. He sounded tired and a little hurt.

 

The next voice to speak clearly belongs to the mare. Judging by the tone of her voice you can tell that she's unhappy and just as frustrated as the stallion. "Rye, I hate cooking. You know that, I know that, the whole town knows that. I love you but the only reason I'm here playing waitress is that those two old bats are trying to get back at me for how they treat the Pupp-"

 

"No!" The stallion interrupted the mare. His voice was demanding and sharp. Though it grew more empathetic as he continued to speak. "Rosewood we agreed to not bring this up. I know he's your friend but Mrs. Lapis and Mrs. Gemma say he's trouble. I don't trust him. Besides, talking about this will only make the next few weeks harder and pass slower."

 

"Why do you always listen to them more than you listen to me?"

 

"What does that even mean?"

 

It seems that the two of you have come at rsther poor time. As the two ponies in the back descend into shouting at each other you realize that the chances of them noticing you on their own is rsther slim. You'll have to get their attention or come back later.

Shadowhide found herself caught off-guard by Belinda's question. She never expected her to ask what she wanted to talk about. She stood there bewildered for about a second, but Belinda had quickly turned and walked off to the cafe, so with any luck Belinda didn't notice. Shadowhide had intended to go to the store first, but she's been hitting it off so well with Belinda right now, so the shops can wait. 'I'm coming,' Shadowhide called out, trotting up alongside Belinda and walking beside her.

 

Shadowhide thought she could use this opportunity to talk about the main reason she's trying to befriend Belinda. She wants a friend, or at least somepony she can trust on this fishy vacation. Perhaps 'ally' would be the better term. She sees Belinda as the most trustworthy out of everypony, since she seems to have the biggest reason to also dislike the vacation. But Shadowhide doesn't know that for certain, so this is a golden opportunity to ask Belinda something to help her find out whether Belinda would be a good ally or not. While still walking alongside Belinda, but turning to face her, Shadowhide asked 'Do you think you'll enjoy this vacation?'

Aero Wind

@@Midnight Scribbler, @, @@FirstPonySpectre, @@SilverHeart,

When asked to, Aero followed Red Cask along with everypony else out of the library and out to the front of the Mansion. As Red Cask was about to leave, Aero called out 'Thanks!' to him. Then Aero turned to Emerald, Sunset and Bitter. 'So, do any of you have any ideas for where we should go next? Or' - Aero flapped his wings briefly - 'should I go fly around the town now?'

Iterested, the stallion listened as Belle explained what had been going on from the start. Her voice was surprisingly warm, and her accent added to it's eexoticism. It was curious that especially her voice, one that he had barely heard, stood out as the most intricate and beautiful of all the ponies that had accompanied him up until now.

 

"Well... that would explain it." He said absent-mindedly, looking in the distance, deep in thought. "How awful... I mean, I reckon it would be awful for anyone to have, but you have a particularly beautiful voice, so it's even more of a waste that you have to hide away in your scarf like that, muffling your voice and having to resort to writing down all your responses..."

 

He looked at her, and noticed that she seemed quite down, her head hanging low and her eyes pointing to the ground. "Hey, come on, chin up..." He said cheerfully. "You wouldn't want to deprive the world the chance to see your pretty face now would you?" He smiled, trying to encourage her. "Have you tried some kind of therapy? Usually there's some kind of expert on these things willing to help you." He asked. Clearly she would've tried something, and he doubted that she hadn't gone to see someone for her problem, but it couldn't hurt asking.

 

Slowly they neared the hotel. It wasn't too far away now, and hopefully there would still be some one - pony rooms left. Not that he'd mind having to share a room, but he'd prefer to have a place of privacy. The rest of the town offered enough company anyway.

Sunset Glow

 

Sunset glanced at the books Emerald had placed back on the shelf. She considered what Emerald had asked her, thinking about it, she pulled the map from her bag to glance at the locations marked on it. Aero commented on the candle she'd presented, to which Sunset tittered "Well, I'm glad to hear that, Aero. It cuts a potential customer on that front, but I'm sure there are other types of candle I might be able to interest you with." She said, smiling warmly. Just then, Red Cask asked the group to follow him.

As Sunset followed along with the others, she glanced over the map, and found herself fixed on a particular shop which was located rather close to the hotel. She thanked Red Cask for leading them to the Library, then turning her head up to Aero, then to Emerald, in response to both of them, she held the map out. "Well, there's a lot to do, but I was thinking I might check this little shop out, the one here, next to the hotel. Then we can go settle in before dinner happens. What do you think?" She smiled, feeling like it was a fairly good plan for the remaining afternoon. If nothing else, the shop might have something interesting she might be able to remember the trip by, or even better, something she could use in a candle enchantment.
