I -- How did he even come up with this. I know it's just a pole with some hooks on it, but ... ugh fuck. They're still alive up there, two people to a hook like a giant dying sculpture, and they're going to be pressed into it harder as that cowhide dries... Are they going to die from the cuts, the gut wounds, or being pulled apart first? And the crowd is barely being held back. His men are just dragging people out of the crowd for tomorrow, but if they let their guard down for an instant it's all going to cave in on them.

Come on, use the weapons I gave you... Come on.

Ugh, oh shit, what are they doing?

Are they...?

Yeah, they're throwing people onto another pole. No hooks this time, all raw hide... Ugh, I can't believe people are just watching this! Your friends are about to be slowly crushed to death by leather! Come on, use the weapons!

Yes! I think they're going for it!


Well... I really don't want to be those guys tomorrow... Why couldn't they have used some tactic? Did they think that charge was going to work? Ugh.

I hate this.

I couldn't possibly be more excited for tomorrow~~~ And to think, last year I was so sure I'd be miles and miles away from everyone I love during the Festival...mmm, it all seems like so long ago now. I couldn't be happier to be here, though.

It's so strange...~ While I'm excited to see everyone else all I can think about is having time alone with Bryton. Last year I decided it was all just for fun, that I wouldn't get attached, but suddenly he's become so dear to me. More and more I just want to be with him...I've never liked any boy this much before.

Tomorrow. Tomorrow I'll be giving her possibly the most extravagant gift I've ever given anyone...even Pearl, back when I was so crazy in love with her I never gave her something like this.

I almost feel a little guilty, really. It's not as if I spent all my money on Maeve and got everyone else cheap junk, but...it's strange. I've never spent this much time or effort or money on a gift for someone, ever. Granted, everyone else was pretty easy, but still.

...Dragons, please let her like it.

I'm happy to announce that my father has made a full recovery! We couldn't be happier with the timing, too, it wouldn't be much fun for him to be forced to lie down during the Festival. I've decided to bake something for Aria to thank her for her help...I was going to buy her something but I just couldn't decide what. She seems like the type to appreciate something homemade, too...and Mother says it's always the thought that counts!

Tomorrow's just going to be wonderful, I know it is.

I know this is last minute, and I swear to you that I had a very good reason for putting it off so long. It's very good.

I'm doing my Festival shopping at the moment. Could you tell me if I should be purchasing something for Her Majesty? It occurs to me, as I stand here, desperately confused, that I have no idea.

I need to do better, tomorrow.

I need to be good at this. This can't be like the last ball the Queen threw ...

... Oh, I just know Raezi is going to make this difficult. I can see it in her eyes. She's been waiting for an opportunity like this. And Audreyna ... she was not pleased to see Raezi, that's certain.

There had better not be any incidents, tomorrow. Everything must go perfectly.

... They're looking much better, at least. Dragons, I can't believe that Leigh, of all people ... unbelievable.

And just in time for the Festival, too. I think, after what's just happened, everyone should be content with letting whatever is in the next room wait until after the holiday ... who knows what might happen, in there. After all of this worrying, it's hard to believe that we might just be able to enjoy ourselves after all, haha ...

... No matter what happens, tomorrow, I'm not going to say a word. I know he'll have something for Lauren, it's ... obvious that he will. But it's Festival, and ... Dragons, I hate fighting with him, even when he deserves to hear everything I have to say.

Wait, what's this all about me serving at some party, tomorrow?

One of the Eina girls just dropped off these clothes I'm apparently expected to be wearing at the party as part of Lady Lauren's company and seriously, what? Did anyone visit you, Pearl, Andrew? Anyone? What the hell am I supposed to be doing, here, and why didn't I hear about it earlier? Lauren?
