    Event Info:
    Magic is in the air, and the howling wind of change once more rings out among the land; once more the seasons are turning as the night grows longer still. The air is no longer warm, but getting colder as leaves fall from the trees. Colors are changing, and the land is preparing for its slumber. As the world gets cooler, magic permeates through the air, and a deep power stirs.

    The land is weakening, and the elements of Wind and Lightning are hitting their peeks, while Earth is drained. The Equinox, another solar festival, is a day of harvest, and festivities. The last harvests of the year are being cut, and magnificent feasts, eating festivals, and competitions are abound. There might even be events for those romantic couples!

    This is the time of tricks and treats. Festivities and fun. You can see kids running in costumes, and adults trying the last of the harvest. Mages are preparing as the land goes dark, and tricksters can be found in abundance. Make sure to watch your cup!

    As the festivities grow, and the night air stirs a powerful force, and malevolent trickster can be found, up to their old games.

    Completion Requirement / Rules:

    As you partake in the various events, you will get ‘participation’ trophies. In order to turn in the event, you must have gotten 3 of these trophies. You can then turn them in at the end of the event to officially complete, and get the reward item.

    When a task states that there is a roll, you MUST roll, you can not select which option you want, and you can not roll more than requested. Otherwise, you can participate in any of the festivities, and do not need to roll.
    *Note, when a festivity requires more than one roll, you are allowed to trade rolls up for a 2:1 scale, or down for a 1:2 scale.
    For instance, if you need a Normal, and a Strong, but roll 3 Normals, you can trade 2 of those for 1 strong. Or, if trading down you can trade 1 Harder Enemy for 2 weaker.

    Event Shop:
    While Exploring the festival, and enjoying the food you can find various vendors and craftsmen. These people, as eclectic as they might be, are selling all kinds of unique items, foods, and oddities. However, be careful about what you purchase! For you never know when an item is secretly a trick.
    You can roleplay out 'purchasing' the items in your Event Threads, then post in the Event Shop to get the item purchase approved by staff, any purchased items are kept forever, and act as Event Items for your character. The items are limited editions and will only be available for the time of the Event.

    Solar Flux - Universal Mechanic:
    Just like all Solar Festivals the time of year affects elemental magic, however now the magic is universal for the entire site! Mages with Air or Lightning-based magic get a boost to their strength, while Earth, Poison, and Metal elemental based magic feel drained. You can use the Solar Flux in any of your threads as a plot point for the duration of the event!
    This boost or drain acts as an optional Stat Buff/Debuff. Mages with Air or Lightning-based magic get a buff to the cost reduction of their spells, reducing it by 10% (which is separate from Reduction maximums) while Mages with Earth, Poison, and Metal elemental magics get a debuff, making spells of those types cost 10% more (still never to go beyond a 50% debuff)

    Spawning:
    Fighting is not mandatory, and rolling for ‘enemies’ is not required. For this Event, ‘enemies’ are instead ‘festivities’ that you can choose to participate in at will.
    If a festivity has rolls within its description you MUST roll, and can not choose the outcome.
    *Note, when a festivity requires more than one roll, you are allowed to trade rolls up for a 2:1 scale, or down for a 1:2 scale.
    For instance, if you need a Normal, and a Strong, but roll 3 Normals, you can trade 2 of those for 1 strong. Or, if trading down you can trade 1 Harder Enemy for 2 weaker.





      Contests:
      Contests are simple 'NPC' judged situations, each of which detailed below. For participating in a contest you get one trophy if you win you get two!

      • Cooking/Baking Contest - The annual Final Harvest Cooking Contest is here once more! Bring your best dish, casserole, and or treat! The competition will be tough and once the judges have decided their winner, the rest of the food will be contributed towards the Eating contest!
        Below are your opponents. In order to win, your dish must be better than all the others! ... Or, you have to knock them out of the competition.

        • Weak : Sharon has once more showed up with her signature 'famous' 12 cheese dip! As always it is a little chard and over-spiced.
        • Normal : Mr. and Mrs. Reeves have brought their super-secret Chili recipe! This one has always been a crowd favorite.
        • Hard : Master Chef Ramsey has shown up once again! You are certainly in trouble, he has one the last three years in a row. His dish is a masterfully prepared Chicken Roast.


      • Eating Contest - Directly following the Cooking Contests is the Eating Contest! This year the lineup is massive. The contest is simple, eat more than the remaining opponents, and win! However, it seems some strange magic has effected some of the dishes! In order to participate in this event, you MUST roll a dice, and deal with the result based on the table below.

        • 1: Seems you got lucky! Whatever magic what cast seemed to have fizzled out. Enjoy the contest.
        • 2-3: On NO! Suddenly, the dish you were eating starts to move. The entire event is thrown into chaos as a food fight breaks out where the food floating on its own! You must stop the assault... or join in on the fun. Either way, you still have to be certain to eat more than the rest!
        • 4-5: The food is unending! Suddenly, every time you finish a plate it is suddenly refilled when you look away. The judges seem to not notice and do not count those plates. Figure out how to win with the added challenge!
        • 6 : Total Anarchy. Suddenly the food comes to life! As you put your hands into the next dish if bites you! The food has somehow come alive and decided you, and the other contestants, are the main course.



      Games:
      Games are simple one-off situations where you will compete in various challenges. You must win at a game in order to get a trophy!

      • Target Game - One of the oldest games, seen in festivals and events for years. These games can show themselves in any way, from tossing a circular ring onto a square peg or tossing sacks of sand into small rings. Whatever way the game is presented the result is the same, prove your skill and abilities!

      • Puzzle Challenge - This Game is a little more complicated. While walking you find yourself in front of a grinning elder blacksmith. At his table are all forms of metal bands, rings, and contraptions. His Challenge is a series of progressively harder metal puzzles! As you watch, you see time and time again people fail on the second or third puzzle... and there are five of them!

      • Riddles - As your exploring the grounds in the distance, among the other games you see a one-eyed man hunched on a stump. At his side a basket of trophies! Though it seems, he guards them carefully, his singular eye seeming to look directly into your soul as your approach.
        Without even a greeting, he will ask you one of the below riddles.

        • What belongs to you, but gets used by others more?
        • What goes up every year, but never comes back down?
        • I have one and you have one. So do the woods, fields, streams and seas, fish, beasts and crops and everything else in this revolving world.

        The man cocks his head at your answer and nods towards the bucket. His eyes scan you knowingly as if looking directly into your soul. He does not care what you answer, either way, you get a prize... so long as you do in fact answer.
        If you try and take a prize, or get more information from him. He will seemingly vanish with the wind.

      Festivities:
      Festivities

      • Maze - In the center of the event is a large maze made of corn, barley, or some other grain. The last of the crops to be harvested before winter kicks in. As you enter, you find that the world seems to warp and twist. The rather small looking maze turned into a massive labyrinth of twists, turns, tricks, and sights.
        Transverse the mage takes skill, strength, and a certain amount of bravery! Just remember, you are not allowed to destroy the maze, or harm any of the workers!
        For completing the maze you get 3 prizes! If however, you end up needing help you only get 1.

      • Fireworks / Bonfire - Finally, for the main event. Near the exit to the Maze, and in a large clearing is a massive pile of wood, which is lit into a large bonfire just as night draws near.
        Fire mages and specialist control the fire, smoke, and launch fireworks in a massive display of power and fun. People dance around the fire and spin in joy. Drinks are served for free, and nearby you can find vendors and shops of all kind. Anyone who helps with the display shows off some skill, or flashy abilities will get one trophy at the end of the day!

      Other:


      • Tricky Business - Finally! Remember that now is the time of tricks, and fun! While walking you find a handsome looking man with a strange feeling to him. It is obvious, he has some crazy magic and is very powerful. Upon speaking to him, he informs you that for each trick, or prank you are able to pull. He will get you a trophy! Just remember, you never know when a trick might be pulled on you!
        Note, the man, even if he is caught pulling a trick on you, will not fight or be baited into a battle, and try to laugh it off. If you attack him without provocation, he will reveal that his power is well over that of a Z rank, and he will disappear taking all your trophies!

    Summer had begun its slow decent into fall. Trees that were once green were now turning colours that resembled a fire on a cold evening. Light yellows, golden ambers, bright oranges, and deeps reds scattered around them, leaves of the trees falling and giving rise to a new time of year. The year had gone by so quickly, time passing like a street lamp when driving by. It wasn’t only time that had changed, so had the young female that sat outside a coffee shoppe with a steaming drink in her hands. Aliannah had changed herself, growing from a girl that new little but the life that she lived with Oya to meeting people within her guild, becoming a mentor, earning an Ace position, and gaining a friend that she would never let go.

    The girl sat there in the crisp morning, she had already gone for a run and taken a quick shower before heading out the door of the hotel room she had booked for the night. Why was she in Lavanitir Port? Simple, a break. There had been so many things that had been going on that the girl had lost herself in the idea of being busy. This break was needed. Well needed. So here she was, outside of a small coffee shop in her fall clothes waiting for her best friend.

    Of course she had invited Elias, the blond had been the one who had been with her throughout the entire time she had been going crazy. She was very grateful towards him. She really didn’t deserve such a person in her life, but she wasn’t on planning on letting him slip from her fingers.

    A small, soft smile slipped onto the lips of the woman and she hummed happily. It was going to be a good day. Lifting the coffee to her lips she tasted the fall within her drink, having added cinnamon and caramel to it. It was perfect for a morning like this, crisp and just on the edge of needing another, warmer layer.

    Fall by far was her favorite season.

    ON THE NIGHT OF THE AURORA


    IS A QUEST TO DISCOVER WHO I AM.


    596/1500 words



    I'm actually gonna bake some pumpkin bread btw

    Elias had always liked the cold, it meant coats and hot chocolate. More importantly, it was the season of pumpkin bread. Screw the spices coffee shops sold, the true lord and savior of fall foods sat in the freshly-picked pumpkin. Of course one needs apples, sugar, nutmeg, ginger, baking soda, salt, cloves, et cetera. Not to mention a kitchen big enough to deal with the mess.

    The secrets to the best pumpkin bread are two: fresh pumpkin puree and applesauce. For the moisture. Find a couple of plump pumpkins (plumpkins, for short), smaller tends to be better, since you get more fiber. Slice them up - sixths or eighths, whichever is better, and scrape out the seeds and other gunk. Save it, though, baking it under salt makes for a nice snack. As for the scraping, there’s really no need to be thorough, you only need that for the baking part. The skin, however, is something you absolutely don’t want in a good puree. Fire up the oven, three-hundred and fifty degrees or so and leave it for forty-five minutes. BY the time it’s done, the pumpkin should easily give to a fork and the skin should peel right off. See? We never needed a peeler.

    No, don’t even try to peel the apples. While your pumpkins are baking, get a decent sized pot and cut the apples into the little wedges you had in your elementary-school lunches. Heat it for fifteen or twenty minutes - really just until they’re nice and soft. Be generous with your cinnamon and sugar, then mash and mash and mash and mash that stuff until it’s a nice little paste. You’ve had applesauce before, so you’ll recognize it when you see it (and taste it, you sneaky little bastard). Be sure to keep it out of your greedy sister’s hands. That stuff is addictive.

    In other news, your plumpkins should be done by the time your applesauce is done, and your house should be smelling like fall. Clean off that potato masher, or use some other wackadoo system for blending or puree-ing or whatever it is. Just don’t stop until your pumpkins are creamy and smooth. Don’t try to eat it, you’ll need a bit less than two cups of this stuff for the bread. More if you’re in the mood for a pie. A lot more.

    Two cups of pumpkin puree, three fourths a cup of (sadly uneaten) applesauce, four large eggs, two-thirds cup of water, two cups of sugar, three and a half cups of supermarket flour, two teaspoons baking soda, one and a half teaspoons of salt, one teaspoon cinnamon, one-half teaspoon ground ginger, and one-half teaspoon ground cloves. A lot of stuff, yes, but delicious once baked. Set that oven back to three hundred and fifty degrees, then grease and lightly flour a pair of nine by five bread loaf pans. Whisk together all the ingredients in a large bowl until they’re a fine batter, split it evenly between the loaf pans, and then bake for sixty to seventy minutes.

    So Elias walked with one loaf safely wrapped in tin-foil, inside a plastic bin. No way was he going to let his hard work go to waste. The only thing left to do was find Aliannah. She said to meet somewhere in Lavanitir Port, but Elias got so caught up with the baking stuff that he couldn’t remember where to go. At least it hadn’t gotten to be scarf weather yet. Just sweater weather. Aesthetic weather. Now to determine whether or not Elias could find his best friend.

    PHARAOH LEAP.

    Temperature perfect for passing through lips, Aliannah took sips of her coffee. It heated her from the inside out, making the slightly crisp autumn day feel warm. The girl's indigo eyes skittered around the area, it wasn't only the leaves that were welcoming fall, but the decorations that lined each little shop too. Pumpkins, golden wreathes, strings of fake warm leaves were strewn and tied to each building.

    To say that the blonde girl loved the decorations of the port town was an understatement. She would have to return every year. Although she liked the decorations there was something that the girl wondered more, where in the world was Elias? Not that she had set a time for him to meet her, but she knew that he often had the same thoughts as herself and they would eventually meet in the same place.

    She had planned on going to the Fall Festival that was held in Lavanitir. She had heard of its colours and of the food and drinks that were there, she knew that she needed to go. So there she was, in said city planning to go to said festival. She really couldn't wait. She wanted to see what mysteries were held in that small place, what fun was waiting for her and laughs were around every corner.

    She just had to wait a little longer.

    A smile played on her lips as she lifted the coffee to her lips once again.

    ON THE NIGHT OF THE AURORA


    IS A QUEST TO DISCOVER WHO I AM.


    1082 words



    Sorry it's a mess. I'm not on top of my game.

    In some stroke of mad genius, Elias had actually bothered to read up on the Fall Festival’s, well, festivities. Contests, games, and other some such were known to be aplenty. Especially the cooking contest. He’d heard folks talking about it for weeks before the festival. Being new to the area, Elias had decided it wasn’t really worth joining. Checking out, though. That would be fun. He wondered if any world-famous chefs ever came to the town, that would be interesting. A chance to see a professional in action. Those sorts of “messier” professions were something of a taboo back home. The less one knew about cooking (or claimed to know), the richer they generally were. Personal chefs and eating out were the lingua franca of any aspiring socialite. Not that Elias cared. Nearly a year away and he liked to think he’d gotten pretty solid. After all, his first loaf of pumpkin bread had padded its way nicely down to his stomach. Better not eat the second.

    Elias thought he’d join another year, maybe. When he could come up with fun little tricks with spices. Those always seemed to elude him. Then again, the simpler things were, the less likely they would fall apart. Elias lived by those words.

    Now, there was supposed to be a fireworks show, and the newspaper said one of the parks had been magically transformed into a giant corn maze, almost as large as four city blocks. That seemed pretty neat, in addition to whatever other dozens of activities there were to be had. Elias had never been to a corn maze before.

    Nor had he ever been to Port Lavantir. It was a nice city, all things said, but Elias found himself hopelessly lost. Tiny street signs combined with a barista's shoddy directions had gotten him all turned around. So much that Elias wasn’t even totally sure which way was north anymore.
    The only real landmark he’d found in Lavantir’s mess of a city layout was a small park and a subtle change in the city’s decorations. They’d gotten more vibrant. Pumpkins, little scarecrows, hay, and the warm oranges and browns everyone associated with fall. He could even smell the oh-so-familiar soft scent of pumpkin spice. Elias never liked the stuff, but he couldn’t help but associate it with fall.

    There weren’t many people in the park, and only one blonde. She seemed familiar from a distance, Elias couldn’t tell. But it did look like she was waiting for someone. THinking she’d have somewhat better directions, Elias wandered closer. He was already late as it was. Way too late. Only the girl seemed more and more familiar.

    “Hey, Aliannah?”
    Elias asked once he got close enough to realize who it was. “Sorry I’m late, but I brought some pumpkin bread.” He showed her the box. “It probably doesn’t make much of a difference. What do you want to do first?”

    PHARAOH LEAP.

    Aliannah had long finished her drink and was now sitting there with her hands in her pockets and her legs crossed as she looked up at the slightly cloudy sky. She was naming the clouds as they passed and smiling to herself at the calmness of the moment. It really had been a long time since she felt like this.

    Her indigo irises shifted from the clouds to the park beside the coffee shop. It was small, nice. There were kids around, giggling and laughing amongst each other as they ran to and fro. It was nice that they had friends, that they had a home. The blonde thought back to the Orphan Sanctuary that she had started back in Tolgalen and thought of all the things that she would bring home to them, things that she would plan so that they would have an amazing halloween.

    However, her attention was soon drawn away from them and to the blond male that had approached. She really only knew one person that would approach her, Elias. But as she looked at him, he seemed surprised to see her. Her eyebrows raised in slight concern before they morphed into something that would tease him about not recognizing her.

    Of course she hadn’t been able to voice the words before he mentioned the pumpkin bread that he had baked and what she wanted to do first. She would have to tease him later. The teasing smile never fell from her lips as she tilted her head slightly. “I think that we should head over to the festival. From what I’ve read there are trophies that you can win in order to get a prize at the end. We should try our hand at it.”

    The girl moved to get up from her seat and straightened out her clothes. “Besides, maybe we can put you bread up for a contest. You might even win!” The blonde smiled as she began to walk towards where the festival would be. It was towards the center of town, something which had surprised the female until she had read that they had magically made room for it.

    It wouldn’t take them long to get there, she could already hear the festivities, but she just couldn’t wait to see what the rest of the day held.

    ON THE NIGHT OF THE AURORA


    IS A QUEST TO DISCOVER WHO I AM.

    I'm sorry the post lacks my usual attention to detail.


    “Well I guess I could do that,” Elias said when Aliannah suggested joining the cooking competition. “I kinda hoped you’d eat it though.” If he was being honest, there wasn’t any way Elias thought he could win the cooking competition with some pretty basic pumpkin bread. Sure, he made everything from scratch, but that didn’t really make that much of a difference. He’d just decided to get weird about sourcing the ingredients. Some store bought pumpkin puree and applesauce would’ve done just fine and probably saved a day or two worth of time. No matter. “I guess it could work out?”

    The two walked closer to the festival. Or rather, Elias let Aliannah lead the way. He’d already become hopelessly lost and he wasn’t about to admit it. A few moments later, Elias could hear the sounds of music and cheer fading in. The festival. Closer now and a little bit more confident, Elias started to walk with a little bit more confidence.

    Then the smells. Rich caramel, popcorn, apple pies. Everything anyone could possibly associate with the season. It, frankly, felt overwhelming. So much food, too much food. Elias wanted to get a taste of everything. He slipped away from Aliannah’s side to grab a slice of pie. Cherry, with ice cream and chocolate sauce. He’d forgotten to offer Aliannah any.

    Elias had eaten about half before they got to the cooking contest.
    “Hey, are you here for the contest,” One man from the crowd asked while pointing towards his little loaf of pumpkin bread.

    “I guess,” Elias said, the man slapped him on the back and pushed him further into the crowd. “Aliannah, hold my pie!” He almost threw it, half eaten, towards his friend as more and more people dragged him through the crowd.

    He now stood in front of an older lady who quickly asked his name, wrote it down, and slapped a nametag on his sweater before Elias could object. He got shuffled into a line. Another older woman, probably pushing her seventies, was raving about her ten-cheese dip and how it was definitely going to win that year. Elias checked her name tag. Sharon. Somehow he doubted it.

    They waited in silence for a few minutes before the judges had the food brought out for a blind tasting. The top four would move on. All kinds of dishes were laid out ranging from freshly steamed lobsters to a bowl full of peanut butter. From the looks of it, made only out of peanuts. The judges made their rounds. Tasting, grimacing, nodding, and one even ran to a trash can labeled ‘for emergencies’ and vomited. All the dishes were removed before four remained. Sharon’s cheese dip, someone’s chili, and what was obviously a professionally prepared chicken dinner. Part of Elias hoped that one would win. Just for the pun. Sadly, though, the judges had eaten half of Elias’ pumpkin bread. Hopefully they’d leave enough for himself and Aliannah to polish off.

    Those four dishes were moved on to the prime judges. Fresh faces and, apparently, professional chefs in their own right. They promptly threw out Sharon’s ten-cheese dip before eating. A few tastes of the chili, a bite of the chicken, and the entirety of Elias’ pumpkin bread. He hoped they couldn’t see the sheer frustration boiling through his body.

    The judges gave some congratulations speech, Elias didn’t listen, though he did manage to make himself shake their hands and took the trophy from them before he all but stomped back into the crowd. With any luck, his ice cream hadn’t melted yet.

    PHARAOH LEAP.

    Through The Soul
    Does the Power of Rebirth Lay

    Her steps hesitated as she heard Elias’ intentions with the bread. If she had known it was for her, she would have gratefully taken it. But the girl said what she had said and she bit her lip with slight regret in her decisions.

    Slowly the festival noises and sounds got louder, indicating that the two were ever closer to the festival. She could begin to smell the things that surrounded them and a smile grew up on the face of the girl. There was popcorn, caramel, pumpkin, and warm apple, dozens of different fall smells infiltrated her nose and filled her with giddiness.

    The girl was off looking at small bracelets that she had happened upon. There were ribbon, metal, woven, beaded, but these were not the ones that caught the girl’s eyes. There was a matching pair in the back. Plain leather with a golden and ruby clasp on the front. Maybe they were friendship bracelets. The girl smiled to herself, that would be fun to have between the two of them. A symbol of the friendship that they had developed through the year and through a series of life and death situations.

    The girl nodded to herself before she looked up at the shop keeper with a smile on her face. “May I please have the matching pair of leather bracelets you have there?” Her voice was smooth and playful. She really wasn’t quite sure how Elias would handle having matching bracelets, but he would have to deal. He could strap it onto something else if he so desired.

    Speaking of Elias the girl hadn’t seen the boy since she had begun to look a the bracelets, but she really didn’t have to look too far as suddenly her hands were filled with a half eaten pie alongside the small cash bag she had pulled out. She really didn’t hear what was going on as she looked between Elias who was seemingly dragged behind a woman who was heading towards what seemed a cooking or baking contest? Oh, maybe he would put his pumpkin bread into the contest.

    A small thread of guilt and regret strung the girl where she was for a moment, maybe she wanted to eat the bread. Her lips jutted out slightly into a pout and she looked at the pie she now held in her hands. “I was hoping you’d eat it he said. Aliannah hold my pie he said.” The girl glared at the pie before she took the spoon that he had handed to her along with the plate and shoved what was left of the pie into her mouth, but left the ice cream… surprisingly she didn’t really like ice cream.

    “Your pie is a sacrifice I say.”

    The girl glanced at the merchant who was now raising a brow at the girl in worry and curiosity. She simply shook her head and reached her free hand into her purse and pulled out the jewels that would be needed to pay for the two bracelets. Without any other questions the merchant put the two bracelets into a bag and handed it to the girl, only after explaining what the two bracelets did. The girl nodded and smiled again at the person who sold her the gifts before walking away and back into the crowd.

    She passed by the competition that her partner had involved himself in. Just by a glance it seemed as if he was doing a good job. He wasn’t losing, but that person with the chicken seemed to be wining. Of course this was just by her personal standards. However, it seemed like the competition was far from over. So the girl wandered away again. Passing by several stores and games. But there was one, one that made the girl stop. A man sat on a stump, he was slouched over, but seemingly missing one eye. The girl was curious.

    Making her way over to where he sat the girl stopped in front of him. She didn’t say a word but he looked up at her and stared at her as if he was staring into her soul, or was it the soul of the Angel inside of her. The made raised an eyebrow at her expectantly before speaking in riddles. ‘What belongs to you, but gets used by others?’

    The girl wasted not time, but she wasn’t sure if it was her answering or if it was the Angel within her. “My name.”

    The man doesn’t say anything else but looks at the girl knowingly and nods his head towards the bucket. The blonde looks at him skeptically before she reaches for the trophy, her hands gently taking it from the basket before smiling at the man with hesitation and walking off. She really hoped if the man knew something, he wouldn’t say anything.

    With the trophy in hand the girl made her way back to the competition, making sure to pick up another slice of cake on her way, by the time she had picked up another piece the ice cream had been finished off, so she couldn’t ask for more to add to the rest of the slightly melted ice cream that was left on the plate, and rather the girl asked for whipped cream instead. Her feet stopped by the finalist table and she looked at her partner who was seemingly shaking in irritation, which she couldn’t understand why until she saw that the bread was all gone.

    Well now she was really glad she had grabbed that slice of pie and that gift for him.

    As she watched the end of the Award Ceremony and as Elias received his trophy the girl tried not to laugh at the face the other was making. He clearly didn’t want to be there and he was very evidently watching. So the moment that it was finished at the male was stomping through the crowd towards her.

    She bit at her bottom lip and held up the bag with the bracelets and the cake that she had gotten for him. It was honestly quite hard not to laugh at this point.

    “Elias! Over here!”

    Aliannah waved Elias down as he walked away from the competition, completely and utterly dejected. Why didn’t anyone tell him they’d eat the whole loaf? Why? And Elias’ kitchen was too many miles away for him to go back and bake a new one. Not to mention ALiannah had eaten the last of his pie. Talk about rubbing salt in the damn wound. He finally caught up with her.

    Only Aliannah had three new things. A trophy, another slice of pie, and some weird pair of bracelets. Identical. Maybe friendship ones?

    “I really hope that pie is for me,” Elias said, before conjuring a fork and taking a bite. He took the plate from Aliannah’s hands a moment later. “If so, you’ve slightly improved my day.” His mouth was full and he scanned the crowd, making sure none would get close enough to knock his newly conquered pie from his hands. “And what’s in the bag? Friendship bracelets?” If ALiannah gave him one, Elias would slap it on his wrist. “Now it’s doubly slightly improved.” He looked back up and down the street, looking for somewhat healthier food. Or at least something to replace his lost pumpkin bread when he saw a little ring toss stall. Something broke. “Now triply. Follow me.”

    Elias wove through the crowd to the little stand and slapped a handful of jewels on the table. “Five rings, please,” He said. The vendor said nothing and handed them over. Elias missed all five. He put more jewels on the table. “Again.”

    This went on a few times with Elias winning cheap prizes. Some stuffed animals and the like until finally, on the fourth try, he finally landed it on the top ring. The vendor frowned and handed Elias a trophy.
