Libbier had been caught by surprise when she heard the news that a chocolate factory was sponsoring an event where the goal was to enjoy their services. And no matter who you are, the moment you hear that a factory that makes chocolate products want you to test their stuff that can only mean one thing. ALL YOU CAN EAT CHOCOLATE BUFFET. Or at least that would be the first thing that came to Libbier's head when she heard it. And by the first thing that came to her head, let it be known that that thing stayed a full ten mins in her head leaving her frozen looking at the flyer, that she managed to take from the hands of the person that was talking about it, while Nero apologized to its original owner and drool make it mostly unreadable at the end.
After recovering from her chocolate dream stupor, Libbier began to gather information on the said event that would, on her own words, feed her enough chocolate for a month, although anyone that knew her would be able to tell that such statement was seriously overestimating Libbier's self-control when it came to chocolate desserts. After a few rounds of overly excited interrogations of nearby vict... nearby people, Libbier was able to summarize everything that she wanted. All she needed to do was show up with a partner and even if she did not have an appropriate outfit, she would be able to acquire one on-site which made things far easier.
Considering everything, the most important part would be of course to chose who to bring along. If it had been a few months prior her only choice would be Nero, but now Nero wasn't even an option, not to mention that she could not even imagine Nero going anywhere near the appropriate clothing that would fit the dress code of such event. The sheer thought of getting into a suit sent shivers down his spine. So of course, Libbier sent a message to her best friend Lily to meet up at the event, mentioning the important parts only, like there being no need for special clothing, it being a two-person only group and most importantly, being prepared for a lot of chocolate eating. There could be no other option than Lily.
The memories Libbier made during Christmas were still with her, and she still remembered the hot chocolate tasting, the sculpture contest, and most of all the late-night ice skating alone with Lily. At this point, it was very likely that if Lily would not be able to attend the event for any reason, never mind finding another partner to get in, Libbier would completely lose the will to eat any chocolate at all for a month, and this time, even Nero could imagine such statement turning into a reality. In his eyes, Libbier had already let her guard down towards her female friend, and he could only hope history didn't repeat itself, for everyone's sake.
On the appointed day, Libbier made her way to Rose Garden as soon as she was able, rushing early to the spot she had planned to meet Lily at. It was a large plaza, right next to the entry of the event, and there were quite a lot of people going in and out, but mostly going in. There Libbier sat on the granite side of the center fountain, which was the main attraction of the plaza. Many others were there seated as well since it was large and the beautiful water sprouts added a lot to the charm. The entire area surrounding the fountain was a wide area of white marble that extended to the flour gardens that surrounded the plaza. It was indeed a place worthy of a marriage ceremony and one could only imagine the kind of view that awaited inside the venue.
There Libbier waited for the arrival of her friend, wearing her usual clothes and her signature white blue scarf, both excited and nervous by the idea of spending time with Lily.
"I wonder if we will be able to see some nice dresses.", Libbier wondered as she recalled that the event would include some make-believe marriage ceremonies.
