[SUNDAY SPRING 28, YEAR THREE • ALL DAY • SUNNY]

The final Sunday of Spring has always been an important one in Ioana history. Folklore states that on this special day, the Harvest Goddess' strength is at its strongest, and for that, she bestows the most colour and beauty to the meadows, clears the sky of all clouds, and ensures there's warmth in the sunlight. With the sun shining bright and warm in an endless blue sky, the old tale rings true today.

It's tradition on this day to appreciate the beauty the Goddess gives to the land, though the appreciation only returned last year when one of the oldest festivals in Ioana, the Spring Fling, was brought back revitalised.

Today, villagers are asked to dress up in their best and brightest clothes to dance in the village square whilst a live band plays. Villagers are encouraged to bring a little something from home to contribute to the ambience of the festival, whether that be a vase of flowers, a bowl of cool punch, or some delicious pie.


Colored Bracelets
This year, the party planning committee has elected to pair up villagers randomly, allowing more people to mingle and meet new friends. Villagers are automatically given a colored bracelet once they enter the festival and are tasked with finding their mate.

You will receive a PM with your assigned color. Be sure to add your color to your post so your mate can find you. If you wish to opt out of the colored bracelets, bold a sentence in your post detailing your character rejecting one.


Spring Fling Royal Court
Each year, a king, a queen, a prince, and a princess are selected by the villagers to form the Spring Fling Royal Court. Their royal duties are of the utmost importance - to spread the word of the Goddess, to maintain the image of Ioana, and to make novelty appearances at the festival. This year, with the return of the Search for the Roses, the Spring Fling Royal Court has extended to the addition of a Flower Boy and a Flower Girl, who have the specific task of protecting the natural beauty of the valley.

Villagers vote for the two villagers they want to be King and Queen. Mayor Tobias recommends the two villagers voted for be well-respected, deserving individuals who exhume poise, grace, and maturity, though, of course, nobody's enforcing that. The villagers with the most votes are then elected as the King and Queen, with those with the second most amount of votes being elected as the Prince and Princess.

There are a few rules as to how the Spring Fling Royal Court is determined:
🌼 There can only be one king, one queen, one prince, and one princess. In the event of a tie, a randomiser will be used to select a villager.
🌼 A villager cannot be both a king, queen, prince, or princess.
🌼 Each villager present has two votes - one vote for the king and one vote for the queen. For example, if you have three villagers present at the festival, each villager has one vote for the king and one vote for the queen, giving you a total of three votes for the king and three votes for the queen.
🌼 NPCs cannot be voted for and cannot vote.
🌼 Votes are done in-character by sending a PM to Belle.
🌼 An announcement will be made calling for votes to be placed. Please only send votes in after that announcement. Votes made before the announcement will not be counted.

She had asked Elliot if he wanted to go to Spring Fling with her in the hope that a day off with festivities and general fun would take his mind off of things, but he had been busy, and so the small priestess had made her way to the main square in the morning alone. She couldn't not go simply because Elliot wouldn't come - she did have a duty as the priestess, after all, and Spring Fling was certainly one of her more favoured events of the year.

Even though the idea of meeting someone completely new was somewhat scary, she didn't deny the bracelet at the entrance - she couldn't not take part in all the little festivities, although she had no intention of really taking part in the search for the roses or anything along those lines. She just wanted to be there as a support for anyone that she could be, especially in these chaotic times that seemed to be descending on Ioana. All she hoped was that they would have peace, and joy, today.

She had changed it up today - Lisbeth had been digging through her belongings for something to wear to Spring Fling - because there was no way she was going to pass up this opportunity to go to Ioana - and she had found a summer kimono that was covered in flowers that she vaguely recalled having in her younger teenage years from her mother. She had fiddled with it for a while, and after being satisfied with it, Lisbeth actually decided to go with it. It suited the theme, and there was nothing wrong with surprising people. She did her hair up out of its usual ponytail into a bun with a hair pin that had been bought to go with it, and she was good to go.

It was a bitch to move around in, though. Lisbeth kept her trainers on.

Lisbeth took the bracelet she was given without much thought when she arrived - she was very aware of the eyes giving her a look. She poked her tongue out at some kid who was staring at her with big eyes - she wasn't used to having so much skin covered, that was for sure, but she certainly stood out. Instead, she kept her eyes out for her partner she was meant to be hanging out with on this bright, very flowery day.

She hadn't wanted to go, but her parents encouraged her to go to the festival in Ioana, although the very idea set her off with the jitters without a second thought. She'd dressed in a simple white summers dress and a flower crown and made her way to the train station for that day, but she had already started the day with a coffee in a mug in her hand and keeping her eyes very firmly out of the window on the way down so that she wouldn't end up having to make casual conversation with anyone (although the idea that the train could crash and explode was as just a terrible thought).

She wandered into the festival grounds, gingerly accepting the coloured bracelet and wondering where her pair was meant to be - she wasn't quite sure in this case, but she supposed that she would meet up with them eventually. Iroha found where she was meant to put the flowers she had brought, so she put them somewhere where a lot of food was and made sure it was an acceptable distance away.

She then stood quietly in a corner and drank her coffee. Hopefully nothing would go horribly wrong.

The day was finally here. Grace had been anticipating the Spring Fling since Wesley had invited her in the beginning of the season. Finnley had helped her pick out her dress not long after she had told her about her date, and had even come over last night to help her put the finishing touches on her outfit. She spent the morning of the Fling doing a light natural makeup and she finished getting ready just as Wes came to pick her up.

She hugged him when she opened the door for him. “You look handsome,” she said, a light blush on her cheeks that she couldn’t blame on her makeup. “Come on, let’s go,” she said, taking his hand as they left her home and headed towards the main square for the Fling. “My friend Finnley should be meeting us down here too. She just wants to say hi, but I figured I should warn you,” Grace said. “Don’t worry, her bark is worse than her bite.” She wasn’t sure what Finnley would say to Wes, but she hoped that she behaved.

Kallie was excited to go to all the valley festivals, especially now that they had Jasper. Logan didn’t mind staying home, but he tagged along as well because he knew Kallie wanted them all to go. It would be a nice trip for Jasper too, who would enjoy the flowers and the music.

It was a pleasant day for the festival as well, though Logan kept the shade pulled over the stroller as they made their way to the square to protect Jasper from the sun. He has his camera around his neck, prepared to take photos of the blooming flowers, and of Kallie and Jasper.

“I hope he doesn’t get too fussy today. He didn’t sleep well last night with the storm.”

Spring Fling
The shower water was running faster than Ella, who was running around the house trying to get ready for the festival; Ella usually didn’t bother about looks, but today she wanted to look nice, Spring Fling was one of her favorite holidays and this year she had someone to go with. After a while Ella finally took a shower she got dressed.

Life wasn’t going too well, but she couldn’t do anything about it, everything she could do was live day after day and hoping for things to get better but the festival was most definitely going to make her feel good. She took a while getting ready. She just hoped it wouldn’t be weird between them, they were just friends going to a festival.

Eleanor arrived at the festival grounds and declined the bracelet that they were giving them. She made sure to wait for Samuel at a visible location, she didn’t want to spend the whole festival looking for him.

It was time to meet up with Colby. Max looked at the clock and she was sure she was going to arrive late at the festival. Her grandmother had stopped annoying her to leave the house and was now complaining that she spends too much time outside, it’s impossible to make that woman happy. It was strange for the old woman to see her granddaughter wanting to leave the house, it just wasn’t normal for Max to wanting to leave the house without being forced to do so.

Max got herself ready and soon left the house. She walked slowly to the festival grounds, she wasn’t much of a dancer but she knew there would be flowers around and Colby said he’d meet her there. Maybe he could use some time away from his bees, Max knows how much he cares about the little bugs but sometimes is good for the soul as well.

She got inside and declined the bracelet that some villagers were giving. She sat on a bench near the entrance and waited for Colby.

Spring Fling
Spring Fling was a great festival, people dancing and enjoying themselves. She liked the festival, sadly she couldn’t hear the music which meant that she couldn’t dance, unless someone showed her the beat so that she could follow, and even then she was sure how well that would end up, but she was still going, just because she might not be able to dance doesn’t mean Jackson and her can’t have a good time.

Fiona got ready, it was nice to have some company for a change. She left Lady in charge of the house, like always.

The blonde walked to Jackson’s house, maybe they could take the longer route to the festival and just spend some time the both of them alone. She rang the doorbell and waited for Jackson to open the door.

Teddy hardly had time to settle in before he'd heard word of a festival in town. He was hardly excited about it. Apparently you were supposed to bring something to contribute to the festival. After blowing a large portion of his money on his shop, he hardly had enough money to stretch for the next week. Luckily, he had also managed to nag a part time job as a bartender, so he wouldn't be hurting for money for long. But this little festival seemed like a good way to build up some social connections and get Dreamland's name out, so he fished around for change and scraped enough money together to buy a nice bouquet of spring flowers.

When he arrived, someone was handing out colored bracelets to pair up people. He narrowed his eyes in suspicion for a moment. This wasn't some matchmaking service, was it? When he was told to the contrary, he reluctantly accepted one, praying he wouldn't get paired up with some bore of a person. He gazed around, one eyebrow cocked, as he meandered over to the tables to set the vase down. He eyed the food table for a moment before loading up a plate with fresh spring vegetables. At the very least, he could get some food in him that wasn't rice or canned beans.

Declan arrived at the Spring Fling in a chipper mood. He thoroughly enjoyed most of the festivals in Ioana, and the Spring Fling was no different. He thought about bringing a pot of chili for the festival but decided the weather was too warm and the food was a little too messy. People would be wearing some of their finest clothes, after all, and he'd feel bad if anyone ruined a nice top or dress with his food. Instead, he brought a fruit tray that consisted mostly of strawberries and a cream cheese fruit dip.

He was delighted when he saw that they were handing out color coded bracelets. Despite having lived in the valley for a good few years, he still felt like he didn't know enough people. He took one with a grin and headed over to a table to set the fruit tray down, nodding to people as he passed by them. Despite the past few days of nasty weather, the sun was shining, and it was enough to make him forget about the arson attack, even if it was just for a few hours.

Despite all of her previous hesitations, Rom managed to pull herself out of bed a little early and get dressed, advice from Finn still lingering in her mind. She applied light makeup, grabbed the strawberry rhubarb pie she had made the night before, and headed out the door before she could psych herself out. She pressed the sadness down as far as she could. Regardless of what had happened, she wanted to enjoy the day. She could be sad when she took a taxi out to see Ellie later. Right now, there was a festival to try and enjoy.

She took the colored bracelet with a quiet thanks, meandering around the sidelines for a moment before setting the pie down. Her stomach was in knots from nerves. She spotted someone in a kimono, so at least there was that. She still felt a little out of place in her painting-inspired gown, but perhaps Finn would arrive soon to help set her mind at ease. In the mean time, she continued ambling about, glancing to see if anyone else had a matching bracelet.

The Spring Fling was here, which meant that Summer was coming soon. Henry's heart was the lightest it had been all season. He loved everything about Summer, and he intended to take some breaks this Summer to go fishing. It felt like it had been forever since he had gone, and he promised himself that he'd set aside some evenings this year after working on Jonas's house to head down to the river, crack open a cold beer, and relax. Of course, he loved the Spring Fling, too. What wasn't there to love about a festival where there was free food?

He made his way to the festival, hummingbird carving in hand. He wished he'd had time to paint it or stain it, but he'd gotten a late start on it. Hopefully someone would enjoy it, though. He nodded in thanks as he took a colored bracelet, watching out for someone with the same color as he sat the carving on the center of a table. He hadn't met anyone new at Harmony Day, but perhaps he would today.

I asked him when it sank in, that this might really be the real end
How's it hit 'cha when you get that kind of news?



Alan had only been in the Valley for less than a day, and there was already an event for him to attend. Really, he'd rather just stay in the house and unpack, after all the house was covered in boxes, but if not now, when?

So he'd dug through his boxes until he'd found suitable clothing. It had been put aside to use for his first day working, but oh well. He slid on the white, formal shirt, before pulling on the black vest over it. His tie was carefully done, and he buttoned up the vest. Then, he slid on the black pants, as well as the shoes, before putting his glasses on.

Then, after making sure that there was food and water out for the animals, and grabbed a packet of brownies after a moment of thinking, he headed out to the Festival.

And found himself rather overwhelmed. There were already a lot of people there, and so he startled when he was offered a flower bracelet. Not knowing otherwise, he accepted it, going over to set the brownies on a table with other snacks.

Emily hadn't planned to go to the Spring Fling, actually, but when the twins found out Kaylee had pushed her into it. She said the two of them would be fine for the day, since the store was closed they said they might go to a friend's house or spend a few hours playing with Sparky. They had managed to convince her, so here she was wearing one of her nicer outfits, a red off-the-shoulder top with a white skirt. Just a little something she'd found a year or two ago and thought looked quite good on her. The three of them had even worked together to make a batch of chocolate chip cookies from a recipe Emily's mother had taught her as a kid. It was always her favorite, but she had been busier lately trying to put up some ads to get other people to work in the store.

She was offered a colored bracelet when she arrived, but with her hands full by the tray of cookies she asked the person handing them out to fix it for her. She placed the cookies on a table nearby before glancing first at the bracelet and then at the people around her. Who was she going to end up paired with today?

She noticed some of the things other people had brought, spotting a wood carving that could only have been Henry's. It made her smile a little, knowing that he at least would be somewhere if something happened. A tray of fresh fruits, another of spring vegetables, and a pie of some sort also caught her attention. This would be interesting, indeed.

Nothing like a lazy day to enjoy some skateboarding, at least in the mind of one Amy Quinn. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, the temperature was nice, and as an added bonus, the street she was currently rolling down wasn't in too bad of shape. There was one thing that did make the woman feel slightly uneasy though on this particular day. The town seemed kind of dead. Even by Sunday standards. While she did begin her ride as a means to enjoy a Sunday afternoon, Amy quickly found herself tasking herself with the secondary job of looking for signs of life.

Continuing on along, Amy's ears perked up as she could swear she heard voices in the not too distant distance. The direction of town square, if she wasn't mistaken...was there some kind of shindig going on today? The bartender really did need to look at that community calendar that Andy had suggested they put up in the restaurant.

Sure enough, as Amy got close enough, it was confirmed that yes, indeed there was an event going on today. Slowing down and popping the board up, Amy grasped the tail of it and continued walking along, not breaking her stride. Really, at this moment she kind of viewed herself as a sailor being drawn in by sirens, though she was simply a restaurant owner that was being drawn in by social activity. As she got closer, things finally started clicking in the blonde's head.

“Spring Fling...shit.”

Spring Fling. A fun little festive event that Ioana had apparently celebrated in the past that had made a big comeback the year before. An event that Amy and her brother had missed out on last year due to having tunnel vision in regards to getting their business off of the ground. And...after taking a moment to look over her wardrobe of sneakers, blue jeans with knee tears, and mint green flannel shirt, an event that she was horribly under dressed for. That's fine though. Maybe nobody has seen her yet. And she had a skateboard! Why, she could just cheese this mutha and come back with a wardrobe that was a lot more appropria....

“Miss Quinn! Nice to see you!”

Nearly jumping out of her sneakers, Amy pivoted around, that whole concept of nobody seeing her going right on out the window. Sure enough, at a nearby table, the blonde found herself being flagged over by one of the locals, who appeared to be waving a bracelet of some sorts in their hand. Not wanting to cause any issues by boarding away, the blonde resigned herself to the fate that she would probably be the worst dressed woman at this affair and shuffled over.

“Maybe I should go home and grab something different to wear...”

“Oh, nonsense hon! You look fine! Now hold your wrist out, please.”

Well, at least she was getting a colored bracelet out of the deal.

Charlie Collins. Current doctor. Former farmer and rancher. Charming and charismatic scruffy blonde haired man. And now, Ioana festival goer. Truly a man of many hats. Although the man wasn't literally wearing a hat. Oh no, not today. No, today at the Spring Fling, Charlie was letting his blonde locks run wild. Well, as wild as they could be after taking a comb to them, at least.

The good doctor had the good sense of course to dress to impress as well. Given the fact that it was his first festival amongst his patients and hopefully his eventual friends, the man figured that it would be a good way to endear himself to the public. As such, Charlie had elected to roll with black dress shoes, charcoal slacks and vest, A light blue sleeved shirt, and a cobalt blue tie. The doc did enjoy blue after all. Maybe not as much as that craftsman fellow in town that had the blue mailbox, but enough.

“Good afternoon!” Charlie cheerfully quipped as he made his way to a table that was set up close to the entrance. “So then, what's the story with this festival? My first time attending, you see.”

And so, the event was explained to the new doc on the block, with the blonde nodding his head every now and then as he listened on. Granted, Charlie had a decent idea of what to expect going in from his own research, but it was always better to ask questions when in doubt. A dance was apparently going to take place as well. And friendship bracelets to boot! All kinds of fun and exciting ways to meet people outside the confines of the clinic's examination room.

“Yeah heck, I'm game.” Charlie cheerfully chirped as he held his wrist out for a bracelet. “Sounds like fun! Not sure what I'm going to do about the voting part as I don't know many people yet, but I'm sure I'll figure something out.”

Well, she had arrived. She was dressed up in what was probably her most formal dress, which unfortunately, showed a little bit more skin than she was comfortable with. Her mother had bought it for her as an 18th birthday gift, if she remembered correctly. "A young girl always need a nice formal black dress!" or something like that. She accepted the bracelet offered to her, though she wasn't quite sure of the purpose. It seemed like most everyone was getting one, so she might as well take one too. She quickly attached herself to the nearest wall. Until she found something to do, she could.. people watch or something. Her eye eventually landed on the table where people were laying things. Had she been supposed to bring something? Dear god.. not a month into valley living and she had already messed up. Did she need to leave and get something? Discreetly pick flowers and put them there? Though she had been making an effort lately, this was why the girl didn't go to social events. She was trying to stay calm, but she was pretty sure there was a look of sheer panic on her face. Hopefully she didn't start crying or something.

The Spring Fling was one of Aggie's favorite festivals. After all, she'd been going to them since she was less than a year old. Having fun with her friends at the Sprig Fling as a little kid were some of her fondest memories. She carried with her a bouquet of sunflowers, picked from her garden just this morning. Hopefully they'd brighten up the place. As she entered the festival, she gingerly accepted the colored bracelet. Hopefully she could make some new friends, or have time to catch up with old ones today. Her next stop was the table, setting down the sunflowers, before making her way to the center of the area. She generally naturally gravitated towards the center of a room. It was probably the bubbly personality. Though some people got weirded out by her naturally cheerful personality. Hopefully, she could find something to occupy her time until she found her bracelet partner.

Paige Goodwin Spring Fling
Dress and Shoes

Rowan and her father had just arrived to the festival a few minutes after it had begun. She had been nervous about going since she didn't have a dress, but her father had known that and had surprised her with one. The girl had insisted that he didn't need to go out and buy her a dress, especially with money being tight, but he hadn't done that. Instead it turned out that the dress had belonged to her mother, and it had been hidden in a box of her things since they ha moved.

Flattening out the folds in the fabric, the brunette entered the square, unsure of where to go and what to do. Her father had quickly disappeared to socialize with his work friends, which left her to fend for herself. She didn't see her own friends near, so the girl instead decided to get some food and enjoy the music.

Everyone looked so great, she didn't expect to win the title of princess, not by a long shot. No one knew even who she was. Instead the girl tried to hide her nerves with a cupcake, watching the patrons enjoy the dancing and singing.

NOTES

Spring Fling
Roberta got dragged out of bed by her mother, she loved the valley but she was starting to miss life in the city, she probably would return soon, her parents were driving her insane and she didn’t know how much longer she could keep going.

Her mother had spoken about the fling, Roberta knew all about the festival, it was fun, every year there’s something different and even if it wasn’t her sort of thing she felt compelled to go, especially if it could get her away from her parents for more than a couple of hours without them complaining.

It didn’t take long for Roberta to dress up, nothing fancy, casual clothes. To some, the fling was a big event, fancy clothes, to some was just another festival and to others an opportunity to meet new people and to dance. She left the house and walked to the festival grounds. She got inside and received a bracelet, she was still searching for her mystery date, and while she did so she came across a few familiar faces but didn’t engage conversation with anyone, she was too focused on finding her mysterious pair, but a long way she bumped into someone.

Roberta looked at the girl she had bumped into, looked young. ”Sorry…” Robbie said watching the teen.

I asked him when it sank in, that this might really be the real end
How's it hit 'cha when you get that kind of news?

Alan stepped away from the table after having set down the brownies, taking a moment to peruse the items there. Finally, he settled on grabbing a pastry of some sort that was drizzled in chocolate, before turning to surveil the people around him.

A girl nearby drew his attention. She was rather short, a good deal shorter than him, with tan skin and a bit of a baby face. Her black hair was long, and she wore a matching dress. And she looked panicked - he couldn't have that.

The future teacher reached over, grabbing a donut with a napkin, and approached her, calling out, "Hey, are you alright?" He gave her a kind smile, offering her the donut, making sure she could see it was on a napkin, not his bare skin.

When Finnley had gotten out of bed that morning she had promised herself a lot of things. She had promised that she would dress nicely, promised herself that she'd dress herself in bright colors, and maybe those would be enough to make her feel better. She wouldn't miss having Sawyer there to talk to because he didn't matter, or that was what she would keep telling herself. But regardless of what she told herself, she had made sure to walk past the Inn on her way to the Festival, without her usual nerve, she didn't dare see if he were inside.

She heaved a soft sigh and made her way to join the festival, a little bit morose about the whole thing. Who needed him, anyway? She shook her head, knowing she'd have to be at the festival for Grace, if nothing else. It was after all, her first real date in a long time, and Finnley wanted to be there to assure her that things were going to be fine, in case she had doubts. So she decided it would be best to put her worries about Sawyer aside for now, and give him more space while she tried to figure out what she needed to do.

Though if she were completely honest, the treatment was starting to make her mad.

She took the bracelet she was given as she entered, glancing down at the thing in her hands before she slipped it onto her wrist, silently. Her plan had been to sulk in the corner, but it looked like she wouldn't be able to do that anyway. She spotted Grace moments later, trying to brighten quickly as she made her way over, noting the man standing next to her. "Grace! You look as beautiful as I expected you too." she said with a smile, hugging her before turning to the man next to her. "And you must be Wesley, right? Finnley, nice t'meet ya'." she said, maybe her chipper attitude a bit more forced than she meant it to be.

Kallie was excited.

Well, that was actually a general statement, Kallie was usually happy. But today, that was more than true. Because today was Logan's birthday AND the Spring Fling. He had done such an amazing thing for her own birthday at the start of the season, that she knew she had to find something almost as amazing. But this was their first Spring in Ioana together, and because of that she thought maybe the Spring Fling would be a good idea.

That morning she had pounced on him with extra gusto, giving him a kiss and a happy birthday and announcing they'd be going to the Spring Fling with Jasper today. She had baked him a cake, one that was well decorated and sitting on the table when he came downstairs that morning, and she promised they'd enjoy it with the family later when they got home. And so they were on their way to the fling not too long after.

Kallie always loved it when Logan had his camera. Taking photos was always something he had loved to do, so she liked it when he was dealing with his passion more often. He mentioned Jasper's possibility of being a little fussy, and Kallie looked down at their song lovingly. "Don't worry Logan, I think he'll be okay. After all, it's daddy's birthday, isn't it little Blue Jay?" she asked cheerfully, reaching down to gently tickle Jasper's tummy. "So we gotta behave for daddy, don't we?" she asked their son, who gave her a gurgle, which she took for an answer.

Kallie glanced around at the large turnout, leaning against Logan. "Wow, it's quite the thing this year, isn't it?" she mentioned, before gasping as if she remembered something. "Oh yeah, babe, here, I got you something!" she reached into the undercarriage of Jasper's stroller, holding out a box with a smile. She had gone shopping a few days ago for a second camera lens for Logan's camera, hoping that it would help him take even better pictures. After all, as her dad had explained to her, different lenses did different things, and she hoped Logan would like it, because she made sure that it was different than his current lens, but compatible with his camera.

Jackson was at the Spring Fling last year, but it had been without a date. This time, he was going with his new girlfriend, Fiona. As he straightened out his over shirt, Jazmyn sat on his bed with Swing in her arms. The cat purred away, not disturbed by Inky who was relaxing on the bed next to Jazmyn. "Dad, shouldn't it be more fancy than that? After all, you are going out with F-I-O-N-A." she said, cupping her mouth as if to shield her words from the dog.

"Why did you spell her name?" Jackson asked as he tried to make his outfit feel straight. Jazmyn shrugged, giving Swing a scratch behind the ears. "I don't know, I was afraid Inky would get jealous." she chuckled, and Jackson rolled his eyes playfully. "I'm sure the dog is fine, sweetheart. Besides, shouldn't you be getting your shoes on? Fiona will be here any minute." As if she had just remembered, Jazmyn placed Swing to her other side and jumped off the bed.

"You're right, sorry! I got caught up reading this morning, then I came in to talk to you and totally forgot!"

"Same book?"

"Same book!" Jackson laughed softly, finishing up his preparations. Sure, this was a date for he and Fiona, but of course he wouldn't deny Jazmyn a day of running around and being a kid. Besides, she usually wandered off anyway and returned just after the royal court was announced. As long as Inky was at the girl's side, it didn't make Jackson too nervous. He heard the bell ring, and hoped that Fiona wouldn't mind heading there together.

He opened the door and smiled, giving her a careful hug. "Hey Fiona," he said when he pulled away, stopping to admire how pretty she looked. He felt his daughter squeeze past his legs and out the door. "Hi Fiona!" she said, making sure she was looking at her first. "Jazmyn loves all the flowers so she and Inky are coming along too."

"I'm going to study some of them too!" Jazmyn said while her father closed the door. "Come on Inky!" she said to the dog as they hurried down the stairs and head of the two adults as Jackson placed his arm around Fiona. "Ready to go?" He asked, leading the way behind his daughter.

He slowed down when they arrived, noticing Declan, his fellow firefighter off to the side. "Hey Fiona, mind if I say hi to a friend for a moment?" he asked, his daughter pointing it out shortly after. "Dad look, it's McCreery!" Jaz, well she was used to calling the guys by their last names, as he did. He looked at Fiona and shrugged softly. "We'll get some drinks right after." he promised, taking her hand and leading her over. "Hi McCreery!" Jazmyn said cheerfully, Jackson coming up behind her. "McCreery." he greeted, hoping Declan didn't mind the Interruption. "I uh, wanted to introduce you to Fiona, my girlfriend. She's been by the station a few times but the other guys are usually swarming her baked goods so I wasn't sure if you two met formally." He said, looking down at Fiona for a moment as if to make sure she was alright. "What's up, man?" He wouldn't intrude for long, but Declan was in fact, station dad, and it would be rude not to say hello.

Wesley Basco


The day he’d been looking forward to for weeks had finally come, and Wes was nervous but excited as he made his way into the Valley. Luckily Ender had been kind enough to drive him into town, but not without some good natured rustling of his feathers and some not so age appropriate remarks before dropping him off and pulling away in a fit of laughter. Of course, that had all been expected. Wesley knew his cousin like the back of his hand, but a ride was a ride. Today was important to him, so suffering through an hour of childish banter was well worth it.

Wesley made his way to the door to knock, his heart in his throat thumping wildly as he waited for Grace to appear. He was nervous. Something felt different about this time around. It wasn't their usual agenda which usually consisted of hanging around the Bakery or wandering around a Bookshop. When she opened the door, he sucked in his chest. The moment he saw her, his knees felt weak as usual, but her warm smile grounded him and he was sure now, he was ready. “Wow you look…”, it was difficult to speak through his bashful grin, “Gorgeous.” With that, he let her lead the way. He'd sort of learned the layout of Ioana from all his visiting her lately, but he sometimes still got turned around on his walks alone from the train station.

Upon arriving at the square, he’d been warned that today he would meet a good friend of hers. As the pair searched, and kindly declined their bracelets, it wasn’t long before the person they were due to meet made her appearance as well. “Nice to meet you too, you look really pretty.” He bowed his body slightly, but kept himself close to Grace, as to not lose her in the crowd. She was so small and fragile. The kind of frame that could easily get lost in a sea of bustling bodies.

Colby Lufton


Colby had spent all morning looking in the mirror, checking himself out to make sure he looked the part. He wanted to dress up for Max. Usually when they were together he was wearing a plain white t-shirt or his grass stained overalls, but today was different.

He’d cleaned up nicely, and did his best not to touch anything that could ruin his shirt of pants before he made his way to the square. Which proved difficult considering all the plants overflowing with dirt, jars of mysterious amber, honey-like substance and melted candle wax scattered about. But somehow, Itris must have been on his side, because he arrived to the Fest without a single stain.

After declining to wear a bracelet, his dark brown eyes fell upon his friend right away. “Maxine!”, he let out a comical whistle and looked her up and down. “Well dontcha just look sweeter than’a clementine!” For the first time in his life, he wondered if he was under dressed. But he didn't think abut it for too long, because something yellow caught his eyes. "Oh! I love that.", he said pointing towards her bee pin. "Where can I get one of those?"

Lilian Delacroix
Spring 28th, Y3
wearing


Midst-panic Lilian wasn't the most observant person, so she didn't really notice the taller man's approach. She let out an almost screech when he called out to her, and turned his way. She probably had crazy eyes right now. Maybe people really would start believing she was a witch if she kept this up. She took the doughnut from his hand, holding it in the napkin. "I'm.. fine." She replied. "Well, I mean, not really, but, it's stupid, so I won't waste your time with it. Just me worrying." She cast her eyes downward. She was tired of anxiety over the stupidest things.

It was like a plague, constantly following her around. She couldn't escape it. She was the biggest worrywart she knew, and knowing that made her worry even more, because deep down, she cared about other's opinions of her just a little too much.
