[It is not obvious to Jerry from her position that Pyros is trying to listen in.]

No few eyes follow the bard as she throws the shirt back on and leaves the stage. Aside from Allison, the party and the employees; she doesn’t recognize anyone. There are still some empty seats in the common area, but the crowd is larger than before. Erris gives the bard a sympathetic look and speaks in Elven, It seems he meant more than you let on. Don’t worry about the slip, it happens to all performers. You recovered beautifully.

Allison practically bounces up and down as the Bard approaches, giving her a hug when she makes it to the bar. Oh my word! Where did you get that outfit! You have to tell me! I have a special someone in mind, I want to see if I can get his eyes to pop out of his head! she laughs. Erris’ mouth twitches slightly again, was that the barest grin forming? Well… It’s not that I disapprove really... she says slowly, I’m just not sure how it will be received… Townsfolk can be unpredictable sometimes this close to the hill… Of course, things here are a bit more relaxed than in Harmonia with such things. But you might want to see what the overall effect is before trying something like that again. She finishes, though not unkindly.

[There is one empty seat at the bar between Elsa and Allison. Pyros is on the other side of Elsa from the empty seat. Jerry, Merrick and Cross have a booth nearby, and Artanis and Adrastia a booth on the other side.]

Merrick orders some food, I know you don’t have to, but… did you want anything to eat? he asks Jerry. He glances at Cross’ frenzied feeding, surreptitiously moving his hands farther back from the Elf’s plate so as not to lose a digit.

Nearby Adrastia laughs aloud at something Artanis has said, though by his expression he doesn’t seem to realize what has been so amusing. She whispers back to him and the half-elf chuckles into his mug as he takes a drink.

"Actually I am quite hungry. I'll let you choose, please. I'm sure you can find something nice for me to eat," answers Jerry with a slight smile.
She looks round to check on Pyros.

"I guess it was symbolic in a way, the Shirt is his... and well we only had a short time, it would have been destructive, but.. it was real. And thank you, I had to find the tone of the crowd I suppose." She explains as she pulls the shirt closer for a moment before hugging Allison briefly. "The Silver Bolt, Marie is a wonder... You should see the dress she is making me! Its wonderful... hmm.." She steps back eying the girl for a moment. "Try it on later ok?" She giggles, "Perhaps you can borrow it?"

"I think my style is a little different to what they are used to, my Mentor used to say: 'Music can change the world. One person at a time.' And I think he was probably right." Taking the seat next to Elsa and Allison she turns to her friend, "How did I do? Not too much? I think perhaps these..." Grasping her 'attributes' in both hands giggling. "were a little much!"

Oh! That must be in Harmonia, right? Of course, it is. I might have to stop there next time I go for the festival! Oh, could I really borrow it!? That would be so great! she hops a little more, hugging the bard again. Erris smirks a little at the pair, Well, it might have been a little much, but done is done.

Elsa chuckles and seems to be enjoying her mead and meal greatly. Well you certainly got their attention... are you ok? I know Yas leaving was... well, hard on you... we'll find him again, someday...

Merrick orders some food for himself and Jerry, and soon they have hot plates of lamb-stuffed dumplings with beets and parsnips in a molasses glaze.


[aside from the music, are there any other tasks the party want's to complete before the end of the game-day?]

"Yes it is, she's amazing. A wonderful woman..." She muses for a moment. "Of course you can borrow it? Come up and try it on after the show and try it on. So It's like this.. you could have just served us and moved on but you were kind and sweet. So, I'll do what I can for you." Returning the hug with more enthusiasm she nudges Elsa. "Thank you Erris, they'll be talking about it for sure. Hopefully it will bring in some more people."

"I'm ok, sorry ... Someone said it was my hair, it.. makes me a little... Emotional." She shrugs hugging the small Halfing round the shoulders. "I might need to share later though. If you don't mind?"

After eating and receiving the share of gold Cross counts his coinage.

"Blast, I seem to have only about 1/3rd what it would cost for that scroll. I wonder if our Bard friend could be more convincing.... I will have to ask her tomorrow."

Pyros enjoys the music and bobs along. Memories of Tenlow coming to mind as he starts to wonder about Elsa and what she could spell out for his future.

Oh! That would be wonderful, thank you so much! Allison says.

Elsa hugs the bard in return, Of course I don’t mind. We have to stick together, right? You can always count on me. Elsa smiles kindly at Pyros, blushing a little and turning back to Erris to request another drink.


Hmm... Merrick ponders a moment, well, perhaps there is some way to earn money about town. We have a few days before our meeting…


[Ok, I think once Mira is done with her performance we can close out the scene in one more post.]

"Of course silly." Mira giggles and stands from her stool bidding the pair well she moves back to the stage, the shirt unbuttoned but firmly aroud her shoulders.

"Perhaps I should keep the Shirt on this time." She jokes, her little laugh calming her nerves. "If any of you Ladies like the outfit, you can get one from Marie at the Blue Bolt in Harmonia."

"So I wonder, have you ever loved someone and through loving them you felt you were the only two people in the world? I have, and this is a little song about that feeling." Taking up the lute she starts with a slow bass note and builds up the tune.

"No time, no place to talk about the weather
Promise of love is hard to ignore
Who said the chance wasn't getting any better
Labor of love is ours to endure

Highest branch on the apple tree
It was my favorite place to be
I could hear them breaking free
But they could not see me

I will run for shelter
Endless summer lift the curse
It feels like nothing matters
In our private universe

I have all I want, is that simple enough?
A whole lot more I'm thinking of
Every night about six o'clock
Birds come back to the pond to talk
They talk to me, birds to talk to me
If I go down on my knees

I will run for shelter
Endless summer lift the curse
It feels like nothing matters
In our private universe
Feels like nothing matters
In our private universe

And it's a pleasure that I have known
And it's a treasure that I have gained
And it's a pleasure that I have known

It's a tight squeeze, but I won't let go
Time is on the table and the dinner's cold

I will run for shelter
Endless summer lift the curse
Feels like nothing matters
In our private universe

I will run for shelter
Endless summer lift the curse
Feels like nothing matters
In our private universe.."


My private Universe

The song changes without pause, the tune more upbeat.

"A wild ride, over stony ground
Such a lust for life, the circus comes to town
We are the hungry ones, on a lightning raid
Just like a river runs, like a fire needs flame
I burn for you

I gotta feel it in my blood whoa oh
I need your touch don't need your love whoa oh

And I want and I need
And I lust animal
And I want and I need
And I lust animal

Cry wolf, given mouth to mouth
Like a movin' heartbeat in the witching hour
I'm runnin' with the wind, a shadow in the dust
And like the drivin' rain, yeah, like the restless rust
I never sleep

I gotta feel it in my blood whoa oh
I need your touch don't need your love whoa oh

And I want and I need
And I lust animal
And I want and I need
And I lust animal

Huh!
Ah!
Cry wolf, baby cry tough
Gonna hunt you like an, an, an, an, an, animal
Gonna take your love 'n' run

I gotta feel it in my blood whoa oh
I need your touch don't need your love whoa oh

And I want and I need
And I lust animal
And I want and I need
And I lust animal

And I want and I need
And I lust animal
Take me, tame me
Make me your animal
Show me stroke me
Let me be your animal
I want, ooh yeah, animal."


Animal

Letting the tune fade out the last note rings as she watches the crowd.
"Many of these words are personal, my music is my way of expressing that feeling, of explaining my thoughts, this next one, its about giving in to something you know is wrong, but you cant resist..."

"You opened up my door
And couldn't believe your luck
Me in my new blue dress
Taking away your breath
The cradle is soft and warm
It couldn't do me no harm
You're showing me how to give

Into temptation
Knowing full well, the Earth will rebel
Into temptation
A muddle of nervous words

Could never amount to betrayal
The sentence is all my own
The price is to watch it fail
As I turn to go
You looked at me for half a second
With an open invitation
For me to go

Into temptation
Knowing full well, the Earth will rebel
Into temptation
Safe in the wide open arms of Hell

We can go sailing in
Climb down, lose yourself when you linger long
Into temptation
Right where you belong
The guilty get no sleep

In the last slow hours of morning
Experience is cheap
I should've listened to the warning
But the cradle is soft and warm

Into temptation
Knowing full well, the Earth will rebel
Into your wide open arms
No way to break this spell
Break this spell
Don't tell....


Into Tempation.

"This my last one." She explains, "Its about being free, yet remembering a promise."

"Listen to the wind blow, watch the sun rise
Running in the shadows, damn your love, damn your lies

And if, you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

And if you don't love me now (you don't love me now)
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (never break the chain)

Listen to the wind blow, down comes the night
Running in the shadows, damn your love, damn your lies
Break the silence, damn the dark, damn the light

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

And if you don't love me now (you don't love me now)
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

And if you don't love me now (you don't love me now)
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain (Never break the chain)

Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)
Chain keep us together (running in the shadow)


The Chain

WIth the last note fading she stands, takes a bow, grasps the Lute and heads to the bar once more.
