*Min, Domcik & Rebecca, still watching from the sidelines*
Rebecca: Looks like things are starting to break up.
Domick: Should we make a move?
Min: Nah, lets stick this one out til the end.
*Dameon walks over*
Domick: Is Elspeth ok?
Dameon: She's asleep. Maruman's watching over her. Rebecca, would you like to have a last danc-
Rebecca: Dameon! Um, why don't you sit with us a while?
Dameon: Ok [img]http://s4.images.proboards.com/smiley.gif" alt=":)" border="0"/>
Rebecca: It's been some Ball, hasn't it? Singing bunch bowls, bonfires, waterfalls, proclamations of love, scandals, break-ups and the list could go on.
Domick: I'm not the Ball type, but I enjoyed it. I'll never forget those Rushton incidents... *Laughs*
Rebecca: Still, we've got the after party now. If this was the Ball, how dramatic is the after party going to be?
Dameon: Uncomfortably dramatic, most likely.
Rebecca: Come on, live a little!
*grabs everything he can carry from behind the bar and sets off for the afterparty*
*Drives a semi into the Ball and carries everything else off to the afterparty!*
Anyone want a lift?
*jumps into cab of semi with everyhting from the bar*
Domick: Well, the bar's gone. No reason to stay!
Min: Agreed! To the After Party (when it starts...!)!!
Rebecca: Huzzuh! *leads Dameon*
*Min, Domick, Rebecca and Dameon make a move*
Squirt: We now have everything! We could really benefit from this....
Dark One: Hmmm, how exactly?
Squirt: We could hold it all to ransom! Mwa ha ha! An after party just isn't an after party without any booze! Oh bugger it, my conscience wouldn't let me do it [img]http://s4.images.proboards.com/sad.gif" alt=":(" border="0"/>
DM: * wanders after Squirts semi* Hmm.. i wonder how im going to get home or to the after party.....
Ariel: DM, would you like a lift? * rolls up beside DM in a black stretch carriage, his driver stepping out to open the door for DM*
DM:... ah, yes that would be lovely* smiles sweetly and climbs in*
DM: wow this carriage has EVERYTHING!!!! Even Clydesdales....* more alchol is consumed*
Ariel: This seats 12, does anyone else want a lift?? Tegan? Arien? Min?
*stands outside attempting to thumb a lift.*
*Jow pulls up in a clapped-out Reliant Robin*
Jow: Look, I'm sorry about the blind date thing, I just had to pay Tegan the money I owed her before I could let go and have some fun. Thing is, it took me all night to find her, I think she was avoiding me! Can I give you a lift to the afterparty to make up for it?
Kangaruth: Okay. But we're buying a better car on the way.
Lucy: *woot* Afterparty! Perhaps there'll be some nice, non-pig obsessed Ober guys there! Excellent!
*goes to find the taxi rank*
*Min, Domick, Rebecca and Dameon are at taxi rank. Lucy rocks up*
Min: Lucy! Split a maxi with us?
*a rather large horse pulls up with a "Yellow Cab" blanket draped over it, and beastspeaks the 5 to hop on*
Dameon: This cab smells like an old horse...
Rebecca: *pats Dameon* There there...*to the horse* To the after party!
Min: Hey Lucy, I think I saw a rather sad looking Daffyd walking around before. Neisha didn't show up...
Lucy: Sweeeeet! Let's try find him!
Maruman: Balls give me headaches.
AF: I understand - thanks for all your help. [img]http://s4.images.proboards.com/smiley.gif" alt=":)" border="0"/>
Jakoby: Before we leave, I understand there was a secret rebel meeting somewhere in this building. Malik and his allies, I believe.
AF: How do you know about it if it's secret?
Jakoby: Bruna has been spying for me.
AF: I was wondering why Dardelan looked oddly relieved.
AF: Okay, so where is it?
Jakoby: The library on the second floor.
*two minutes later, at the door of the library*
AF: Let's see what we can hear.
Malik: So, anyway, I was changing my nappy when this young Herder burst in on me, and, and *sobs* he started taunting me!
Brocade: *bursts into tears* I know all about it - this mean little child took my handkerchief away from me, and, and threw it into a mud pool!
Vos: What did you do?
Brocade: What could I do? I jumped in after it! You know how I love my handkerchief with the pretty pink flowers on it! My wife made it especially for my birthday! But it was ruined! *cries*
AF: This is a waste of time. Let's go.
*voices fade as they walk back to the entrance, where Bruna awaits them*
Bruna: The after party?
Jakoby: Follow the smell of chocca.
AF: There are a few carriages left - let's take that one.
*and off they go*
*Jumps onto Galtha and rides off to afterparty*
Tegan: *jumps into Ariel's transportation, followed by Dragon and a love-sick Angina* to the after party!
Ariel: let's go.
*pushes everyone still hanging around out the door*
The ball is over! Go home! Or better yet, head towards the after party! It should be starting shortly!
