Comments and Log

3 Grimhall House Guards, Ivan arrive, following Sanya.

Elizabetta, a disapproving lady-in-waiting, Lily, an aloof lady-in-waiting, 2 Grayson House Guards, Clark, an exasperated guard arrive, following Sabella.

1 Grayson House Guards, Peaches, a lovely white war filly with a peach saddle, Deliverance, an albino falcon, Stormy, a silvery gray hunting hound, Rascal, a hyper terrier, Rosalie, a lady in waiting arrive, following Reese.

Reese heads to the north, seemingly eager for pie!

Sabella is here bustling around a long table that has been lined with all kinds of pies! Apple and raspberry and strawberry and pumpkin and blueberry and just about every kind of pie you could possibly imagine with chairs all set up behind them, "If you could just take a seat behind your chosen pie," Sabella says, gesturing to the chairs and beaming, "We'll begin as soon as we have the rest of the contestants!"

2 House Crovane Guards, Rukhnis arrive, following Rysen.

Isabelle, who is just so tired of everyone's nonsense, Sam, who is a boy and definitely not a princess in disguise, Roland, the worst bard in Arvum arrive, following Niklas.

Reese goes to take a seat behind the strawberry pie which seems to be her choice. She puts on a linen top over her fancy pink gear and is seemingly getting ready to try to eat lots of sweets!

Isabetta looks over the avilable pies and goes for a blueberry.

Eina arrives, following Peri.

Sanya checked charm + etiquette at difficulty 20, rolling 23 higher.

Reese checked dexterity + etiquette at difficulty 20, rolling 11 higher.

"Wish me luck," says Rysen softly to Rukhnis, taking his glass of whiskey with him to take a seat behind the pumpkin pie. He cracks his knuckles, takes a drink of whiskey, and winks at Reese.

Isabetta checked charm + etiquette at difficulty 15, rolling 10 higher.

Isabetta checked charm + etiquette at difficulty 20, rolling 6 lower.

Niklas follows Reese to the pies and considers the selection. "I do like a pumpkin pie, but it seems risky. They're going to be the densest option, I think." So instead he drops himself at a nice cherry.

Rysen checked dexterity + etiquette at difficulty 20, rolling 24 higher.

Niklas checked charm + etiquette at difficulty 20, rolling 25 higher.

Isabetta checked charm + etiquette at difficulty 20, rolling 3 lower.

With a quiet sigh, Rukhnis follows Rysen in to the land of excessive pie eating. She presses her lips together and looks around critically at the vast reserves of pie collected here., and then nods resignedly to Rysen as he wades in.

Reese peeks over to Isabetta as she arrives, having a warm smile for her. She is seated behind the strawberry pie looking ready to eat. She then looks to Rysen. "Good Luck, Lord Rysen, may your tummy not fail you now!"

Rysen laughs warmly. "Thank you, Your Highness. And the best of luck to you as well!" Rysen sets down his glass and cracks his knuckles.

Behtuk stands in the back and watches. There's definitely a fixation on the pies and a hopefulness of leftovers.

Puff, a dainty yellow-green canary, 2 Leary House Guards, Sir Jesmond the Giant arrive, following Arcadia.

As people take their seats Sabella looks very pleased, "All right, now you are not allowed to use your hands here so please place those behind your back! We have hot towels and water, don't worry and if you'd like to tie one about your neck I wouldn't blame you. Now, when I give the mark you are to start and we will continue with some volunteers replacing the pies until there is only one winner remaining! Is everyone ready?" She waits in case anyone has anything to comment and then says, "All right -- ready, set, EAT!"

Rysen checked willpower at difficulty 5, rolling 11 higher.

Isabetta doesn't need to be told twice, usually she would be or might be careful of making a mess of herself, but this time, Isabetta is going all out, or rather all in. She's going to get blueberry pie on her face, hair, her leathers, luckily she isn't in a gown or dress. She is apparently trying to win by getting the pie as many places as she can.

Isabetta checked willpower at difficulty 5, rolling 5 higher.

Reese checked willpower at difficulty 5, rolling 31 higher.

Niklas waves toward Behtuk when he sees the man. "Oi, Goodman Behtuk! Unlimited free pie!" Then he downs a pie.

Arcadia quickly slides in, deciding to enter the competition last minute. Because who really loves pie more than a pregnant woman?

Niklas checked willpower at difficulty 5, rolling 13 higher.

Rukhnis's expression flattens out still further on hearing the instructions to the contest, and with a faint grimace she turns her gaze away from the contestants to meticulously study the statues ranged around the plaza instead.

Sanya checked willpower at difficulty 5, rolling 7 higher.

Arcadia checked stamina at difficulty 5, rolling 12 higher.

Reese looks over to Isabetta with amusement. "The steel tub is still in my tower, Issy." she offers. "She once came to my tower covered in pie after she went to the commoners ball." Reese says, apparently of Isabetta. She sounds all cheerful and then goes to work eating strawberry pie.

Behtuk gestures to himself and then the pie. He shakes his head, declining Niklas invitation, if it was such.

Taking a seat, bringing the pie closer to herself, Sanya takes a bite.

Peri chats with Rukhnis. "The last pie event here I ended up with pie in my hair, and I wasn't even a participant!" She watches the contestents. "We'll probably ok. This isn't a pie throwing contest."

Quartus, Fourth of Monique's Assistants arrives, following Delia.

Arcadia sinks her teeth into her pie. Hands behind her back, she dives in with a reckless abandon.

Rukhnis makes a quiet "nngh" sort of noise in the back of her throat, and says to Peri, "I should certainly hope not."

Delia checked willpower at difficulty 5, rolling 2 lower.

2 Pravus Honor Guard arrives, following Sebastian.

1 Grayson House Guards have been dismissed.

Peaches, a lovely white war filly with a peach saddle have been dismissed.

Deliverance, an albino falcon have been dismissed.

Stormy, a silvery gray hunting hound have been dismissed.

Rascal, a hyper terrier have been dismissed.

Rosalie, a lady in waiting have been dismissed.

Rysen smiles to see Arcadia arrive. "I'm not sure it's fair if you're eating for two," he says with a grin, as he holds his hands behind his back, and starts to voraciously eat his pumpkin pie, stiffing a laugh with pie in his mouth at Reese's account of Isabetta after the commoner's ball.

"Admittedly I should have thought of something like that," Sabella says to Peri with a laugh, "Maybe next time! I once had a pie and cake race where almost everyone ate what they were carrying by the end, it was a splendid time! Baron Silas actually flew! Or at least, I'd had a lot to drink and I swear his feet left the ground." As everyone makes their way through their pies, it seems only Delia has issues with finishing. "Excellent job, everyone! And I hope you didn't fill up on those, because..." And then everyone except for Delia has a brand new pie set in front of them! "Round two, go!"

Rysen checked willpower at difficulty 10, rolling 12 higher.

Arcadia checked willpower at difficulty 10, rolling 15 higher.

Isabetta checked willpower at difficulty 10, rolling 6 higher.

Niklas checked willpower at difficulty 10, rolling 3 lower.

Sanya checked willpower at difficulty 10, rolling 2 higher.

Delia enters with Sebastian, and has time to settle herself with a towel and pie before glancing up at the Pravus. "I apologise," she says with mock seriousness, "in advance. I will certainly not be dignified. You can blame Monique if yo umust, for sending you as my escort." She grins. And then it's pie-eating time!

And she absolutely biffs it. It's not the eating like an animal, face in the pie thing. It's not the lack of balance caused by having her hands behind her back. She gets about halfway through her pie before she starts to slow down, inexorably. By about three-forths, she finally gives up and immediately goes for a towel to cover her dirty face. "I should have eaten less," she says. "It serves me right for not listening to Princess Sabella!"

Arcadia grins at Rysen, her eyes flash with that terrible competitiveness she gets "Don't you know? Babies hate pies. Luckily. I love them and am starving." Her face dives into the next pie. Gobbling and chewing. The cherry filling covering her face and hair.

Although able to keep most of the pie off her face and away from her clothing, it's clear Sanya struggles to make enough room as time goes on. But still she persists.

Reese checked stamina at difficulty 10, rolling 19 higher.

Rukhnis casts a brief glance towards Rysen just to make sure he's comporting himself as heroically as one possibly can in a pie eating contest, and then turns her gaze to Peri. "You have been well lately, I hope?" she asks the other woman, studying her closely. "I have not seen you in some time."

Somewhere between the pig-racing and pie-eating, Sebastian's gained a new escort. Or possibly the Minx has lost hers, who knows! Either way, the Pravus Lord follows in with Whisper Delia's, having found a new glass of wine somewhere, just in time to watch the excesses of the pie-eating competition. "Oh, I'm more than happy to watch," the artist observes to Delia, looking amused. "Though it seems to defeat the purpose of enjoying, presumably, excellent pie." He stands back from the actual eating, gaze flickering over the various contestants.

Isabetta is really really making a mess of the pie as she goes and herself, and anyone seated close enough to her to be in the splash zone. The Lady shows reckless disregard for pies and other human life and perhaps even her own as she gets blueberry places that blueberry was never meant to get. No doubt she will have blue hair after this.

Behtuk looks on with hints of confusion. His hand twitches every time large chunks of pie leave the table instead of reach someone's gullet.

Despite his earlier observation Niklas' unabated ardor for pumpkin pie leads him to requesting that very treat for his second, and this decision is his undoing. He makes a good dent in it, but once he starts to slow down it's all over. Eventually he's sitting there, staring at his half finished plate, filled with the sense of defeat and nausea that only losing a pie eating contest can really bring about.

Reese is continuing to enjoy the strawberry pie the still digging into such. So far she doesn't seem to have any troubles with such. She even is for the most part clean, save for a bit of berries on the corner of her lips.

"In a way," Delia says, fastidiously cleaning her face with a towel and warm water, "I agree." She lowers the towel to smile at Sebastian, with a face now pie-free. "But then, when a contest is going, it's so difficult not to compete. Even if you lose. Otherwise, where will my best stories come from?" She, too, watches the contestants, focusing on the messiest ones with a laugh in her throat.

2 House Riven Soldiers, Oura, a white-tailed eagle, Valor, a juvenile male Oakhaven Bloodhound arrive, following Thesarin.

Peri smiles at Sabellia and taps her bandana. "This time, I'm prepared for if any pie goes flying. I had so much trouble getting all that pie out of my hair last time." She turns to Rukhnis. "I am well. Duties have kept me from my usual haunts." She looks at Niklas's plate. "I wonder if he is going to finish that? I hope there are leftovers."

Sabella audibly gasps when Niklas says he has had too much pie, "Elizabetta, please see to Prince Niklas who must not be himself to have stopped at only a pie and a half!" There's amusement to her tone though and as everyone finishes eating (or wearing) their pies, another is miraculously set before them! Even the most hardy of pie eaters is probably regretting their choice of fruit filling at this point, "We have so many competitors left! I'm in awe of your abilities, although I know that the Countess there has a wonderful excuse and all of you should be nervous," she winks at Arcadia and then holds her hand up, "And third round--go!"

Arcadia checked willpower at difficulty 15, rolling 1 higher.

Reese checked willpower at difficulty 15, rolling 8 higher.

Isabetta checked willpower at difficulty 15, rolling 30 higher. Isabetta rolled a critical!

Sanya checked willpower at difficulty 15, rolling 5 lower.

Sanya checked charm + etiquette at difficulty 20, rolling 40 higher.

Sebastian seems to be resisting the urge to compete very well indeed: probably helps he has wine to hand, though he only takes the barest sip from the glass. "Oh, the best stories come from the people you meet, dear Whisper. And from your patron, I've no doubt." Some of the more gusty contestants -- going as far as getting splatters of pie all over themselves -- earn an amused, lingering regard from the Pravus Lord. Isabetta's gusto, in particular, earns a low-throated laugh. "I retract my statement, actually. Eating pies tells one a lot about a person," he says to Delia.

Reese continues with her strawberry pie the girl still in the running although she isn't as talented at pie inhaling as Issy! She gives the Lady and then the Countess both a dimpled smile.

Rukhnis nods understandingly to Peri. "I am sure you have a great many things to occupy your time. And in truth I have been very busy myself, and spending a great deal of time at the clinic and hospital of late." At Peri's musing her gaze slides over to Niklas and his unfinished pie, and she shakes her head slowly. "Regardless, surely there must be /some/ pie left over after everyone has done." Her gaze glances over those still cramming their faces into pie, even now, and then there's another slow headshake.

Niklas gives Peri and then Elizabetta each a sort of bleary too-much-pie look, then shrugs. To Peri he says, "The pie is endless, Lady Peri. Though if you would like to empty my plate on my behalf, please do not hesitate to do so."

It's debatable if Isabetta's strategy is eat the pie or wear the pie, but whatever it seems to be, for now at least it seems to be working.

Arcadia doesn't slow down. She does change to an apple pie. Less messy. Glancing at her competition, she subtly slides closer to Rysen, trying to make more noise and more mess in an attempt to psych him out.

Shoving the pie aside, completely unable to go on, Sanya shakes her head as she continues to chew. Although she does manage to keep all fallen crumbs on the plate.

"Oh?" Delia asks Sebastian with an interested glint in her eye. While the ruccus goes on around them, she and the Pravus Lord provide a quiet background. "So what does eating pie tell you about these people?" After a moment she winks. "Never mind. I wouldnt dream of making you state your observations aloud and in front of company. Though perhaps in private at some point. You're very right about Monique ... she tells /the/ most interesting and frankly concerning stories I have ever heard. No matter how old I grow, I doubt I'll ever have any to rival her's."

Rysen checked willpower at difficulty 15, rolling 4 lower.

Merek makes a way about to the next place in the festival.

Eating so much pie, drinking so much whiskey and then the huge mess of Arcadia Stahlben is just too much for Rysen. He glances towards Arcadia as she's grossly stuffing her face, and gags. The Crovane lord quickly rises to his feet, excusing himself and standing in the back of the plaza, breathing very slowly, and trying not to see any of the pie he'd managed to consume.

Sabella seems pretty impressed there are still so many contenders in the race, laughing as Isabetta does an amazing job making her third (!) pie disappear, "Well it appears we have our three finalists right now, it's just a question of where people will place! So if you would ladies," she gestures and a fourth pie appears before Reese, Isabetta, and Arcadia, "I'm curious to see who succeeds as just watching you has made me want to swear off pie--in the best of ways," She amends quickly, raising her hand once again and saying, "Go!"

Arcadia checked stamina at difficulty 20, rolling 2 lower.

Reese checked willpower at difficulty 20, rolling 10 higher.

Isabetta checked willpower at difficulty 20, rolling 13 lower.

Isabetta did not pace herself , did not pace herself at all. By the time the next pie comes she just stares at it. Staaaare. Then she picks it up and chucks it at Peri. Without warning.

Peri checked dexterity + dodge at difficulty 15, rolling 7 higher.

Reese seems to be taking this contest seriously as if she often takes contests. She goes for the next pie, starting on that. The Grayson General seems to have impressive appetite!

Rukhnis checked luck + dodge at difficulty 15, rolling 10 lower.

Isabetta checked dexterity + athletics at difficulty 15, rolling 15 higher.

With a twitch of lips, Sebastian seems content to answer Delia's words, though he does so in an undertone, only so as not to divert from the contest at hand: "The lady," he gestures to Isabetta, "Is not afraid to tackle challenges, even ones that might reflect on her. It shows a passion, but also a particular carelessness for how she's perceived." His attention returns to Delia, "And you," the corner of his lips twitch upwards at her precise cleaning: "Are willing to take a chance, but you always have decorum in the back of your mind: a fitting trait for a Whisper, mind."

Arcadia is much too cocky with her ability to push Rysen out of the competition. She starts on her next pie, but her passenger on board has decided it no longer likes apple pie. Arcadia pauses. Her face turning green. She pushes the pie away and gulps some air herself. Very much hoping the three plus pies stay put.

Peri checked luck at difficulty 10, rolling 4 higher.

Sabella claps her hands delightedly as the participants finish, "And it looks like in first place we have my sister, Princess Reese! Who is amazing in everything she sets her hands to--or not her hands in this instance since she wasn't allowed to use them! But her--oh!" She exclaims as Isabetta's pie goes flying towards Peri, "Ah, just so everyone knows this is not part of the contest!" But there is a whole pile of pies over there on a very large table just sitting there waiting to be eaten. Or thrown.

Merek checked dexterity + dodge at difficulty 15, rolling 36 higher.

Behtuk opens his mouth, agape at the sight of someone throwing a perfectly good pie. Me moves in the direction of the poor fallen pastry.

Reese smiles when she is announced as the winner, the Princess seemingly pleased. "Thank you, Sabella." she says and then gets distracted by the pie throwing. "Issy..." She says in the woman's direction.

Peri eyes the pumpkin pie on Prince Niklas's plate trying to decide if it would be in good taste to take the pie. She's not up to mode. It is at that point Isabetta throws a pie at her. It was indeed good fortune that had Peri tie her hair up today. The bandana keeps much of it out of her hair.

Delia's eyebrows lift at this summation from the Pravus Lord, and Sebastian gets a slightly more sober and serious nod. "Consider me impressed," she says. "I appreciate someone who can take such a silly contest and learn something from it." Then the pie flies through the air and her eyebrows go up even higher. "Oh, dear. I don't think /any/ amount of careful cleaning will save this gown if there's going to be missiles thrown."

Arcadia certainly decides to get in on the action. Picking up her unfinished pie, she deposits it straight on Reese's head. A mischievous look at Isabetta, as if daring her to add another to Reese's golden locks.

Isabetta doesn't need to be told twice, she walks straight backed to the nearest pie, picks it up and attempts to hurl it at Reese.

Getting a napkin to dab at any potential stray pieces of pie, Sanya rises to dip her head at Delia. "It's good to see you, Whisper." She greets before turning her head as she notices the commotion. "I should have brought a cloak, shouldn't I?" She muses as she watches the mess of the pie.

Merek avoids some of the pie, while he moves to participate in eating them, not that he can win with that finished, but he still tries. He then offers a wave to those he knows also.

Regardless of her gaze being directed mostly anywhere but at the pie-scarfers, Rukhnis is quick to notice Rysen's abrupt departure from the pie table. She starts to make her excuses to Peri and dips in a bow to her, when all of a sudden some infernal miscreant decides senselessly to lob a pie straight at the other woman. At the precise depth of her bow, she notices something hurtling in her general direction, and despite a sudden jerk to the side, the hurled pie-missile strikes Rukhnis right in the shoulder, the splatters flying off harmlessly around Peri and touching her with hardly a single speck.

Behtuk rescues a pie from being thrown. He applies it to it's proper purpose.

Reese help as the pie is dumped on Reese's heads, apples and sugar sticking to her golden locks and making a mess of them. "Cady!" She say and then Isabetta is throwing at pie at her at a well. Her cheeks are all pink.

"We share parts of ourselves in everything we undertake -- silly or serious," Sebastian says to Delia with a wry, sideways smile. He notices the pie-flinging in action about the same time as the Whisper, and though he gives a low laugh, he says, "I'm sure your Lady patron would love nothing more than an excuse to replace it. Me, I--" he clears his throat, "--think I'll find somewhere less dangerous."

As the pies start flying Niklas slouches hard into his seat, going boneless as he disappears under the table and well out of the line of fire. After all, he's far too well dressed to get hit with a pie.

Arcadia cackles at Reese and her mess of pies. She tries as innocently as possible, "Yes, your highness?" Although, she does shift and grabs a pie lobbing it now at Isabetta. The real troublemaker.

Isabetta is unarmed, having deposited her last pie on Reese and stands there looking left, looking right, then making a run for Rysen, apparently hoping to find a human shield before she finds herself the victim of her own mischief.

Reese make her way toward the pie table, picking out a raspberry pie. The princes then attempts to throw her pie at her Isabetta. She then sighs dramatically in Arcadia's direction.

Hiding a laugh behind a delicate hand, Delia rises. "I think I'll do the same," she tells Sebastian. "I have an appointment to keep in any case. I would like to talk to you more, in a safer place, at some time. Monique has made me curious about you." She bows to the Lord, hoping nobody lobs anything at the back of her head. But she's too polite to refuse a word given to her and so she turns to Sanya with a smile and another bow for her. "My Lady Grimhall, you did very well! I was deeply impressed."

Sabella is torn between laughing and keeping the piece, "Now if we could--" she ends up with a strawberry pie chunk on the side of her neck and sliding down her hair, "Oh! Well, this was not the intended use of the--" more pies go flying and she ducks with a bit of a shriek, before actually standing up on a chair, "If we could please refrain from throwing the pies the leftovers were meant to make their way to the less fortunate in the Lowers! Although everyone is of course free to take some as they would like, please do think of those less fortunate who would benefit from the pie in your hands!"

Rukhnis straightens up all the way from her badly timed bow and casts a flat look and a grimace at the glops of pie sliding off her shoulder. Her dark gaze turns to the pie eating table in an attempt to burn the perpetrator to ashes with the mere terrifying power of her glare, but now that everyone's throwing pie it's impossible to determine who started it. Raising her gaze to the heavens instead, she draws a bit of cloth from the folds of her sash and, wiping pie from her arm as she goes, makes a circumspect exit from the field of battle.

Sabella checked charm + leadership at difficulty 15, rolling 42 higher.

Sebastian sketches out a bow to Delia. "As she has made me of you. It was a pleasure meeting you," he tells the Whisper, as he straightens, lifting his mostly untouched-glass in a toast. "And I should enjoy that very much." He turns to slip through the crowd, picking his way through pie-remnants.

2 Pravus Honor Guard leaves, following Sebastian.

Behtuk gets another pie after the first one is gone.

Reese checked dexterity + athletics at difficulty 15, rolling 78 higher. Reese rolled a critical!

Peri is dressed to the nines for an agricultural festival. In other words, no silks! She is wearing a sturdy canvas vest and short canvas trousers. She pulls a hanky from her vest's breast pocket and wipes pie off her front. She frees her hair from its peace bond and looks for some cold wonder to try and keep berry stains from the bandana.

The raspberry pie that Reese threw goes soaring toward Isabetta, looking like it might hit her right in the face. Despite this throw, Sabella's words seem to have an effect on the princess who steps away from the pie table.

Thesarin steps out of the doors of Heron Hall, just in time to see the Peerage of Grayson hurling pies at each other. The Prodigal, big and stoic and grim, slows to a stop and just... stares. In silence. For a long moment.

Isabetta lets out a shriek as she is struck while running for cover, her arms flail in the air and she does a little dance, spinning in a circle. Any other pies thrown her awy would be sure to hit before she melodramatically crashes down in a catastrophic display of pie and filling. She ends up in a heap where it is impossible to tell where the pies end and the lady begins. Such is the extent of the horror and devastation.

Delia, pie-free, sees Thesarin come out - and sees his expression. She catches his eye from across the way and raises her brow, shrugs, and spreads her hands. The whole of her demeanour contains the words, 'Thank goodness - it's not just me!'

"Thank you, but it was mostly luck." Sanya chuckles lightly as her gaze follows the remaining competitors as well as remaining as out of sight as possible to avoid any stray pies.

Arcadia wipes some of the pie away from her face, not that it does much good. She teases Isabetta "Gods and spirits!You really are lady trouble."

Isabetta is laying and wallowing in a pit of despair and pie carnage on the ground. Also just a horrific amount of cleaning work for whomever has to take care of her leathers later.

Behtuk sets down and empty pie tin and picks up a third pie. He's glad someone suggested he come to this event.

Sabella seems appeased that the pie throwing stalls and steps down from her chair, accepting some help from Lily and Elizabetta to try to get pie out of her hair or at least pin it up so it's not very noticeable, "Thank you, everyone, for listening and for participating," She says cheerfully, "Count Thesarin! You just missed a very lively pie eating contest! Would you like one?"

Delia smiles at Sanya. "Luck or not, I was very impressed," she says. "And I hope to see you again soon. I have another engagement, or I would stay to talk longer. Until then, please be well!" She bows and turns to leave, waving to Sabella and mouthing 'Thank you!'

Reese starts to Isabetta, trying to couch down near her. "You okay, Issy Berry?"

Reese is overheard praising Sabella: Great pie contest!

Reese is overheard praising Michael: Yay, greatson festival

Thesarin shakes his head toward Delia, looking like he's rather baffled. He turns toward Sabella, lifting his chin in the Princess' direction and giving a low grunt toward the back of his throat. "Suppose I'd take one, if you're offering."

Reese is overheard praising Liara: Yay, Grayson festival

Niklas appears beside his wife, popping out from under the table where she's standing. "Well. That was invigorating." He glances at her for a moment and decides not to comment on the strawberry in her hair. Thesarin gets a wave. "Tell Oswyn I miss him, Count!" After a second, "Oh, and hi."

Isabetta can be heard telling Reese in a weak whisper, "Issy.. Berry.. Pie". Then she sticks her legs straight up in the air and her tongue out. She's playing dead, until she tastes some of the pie that is on her. "Oh this is really good."

"I am and," Sabella adds a bit sheepishly, "We'll clean all this up. There's more food just south of here at the main festival if you wanted to join that. I think most of us will be headed down that way in a moment or two." She also offers Delia a bright smile and a wave, as servants start attempting a clean up and offering people warm towels to get the pie off.

Back to list
