So Bobbie Billie Jack rounded up a few of the men and women not working that day, set up tables, a dancing floor, seats, the whole nine yards for a nice shindig. He even woke up the drunkard bard Taliesen, and had him bring his lute, to play music for everyone. By the ninth break, there was food being brought out, with more in the ovens, and a few barrels of wine and ale were procured from somewhere. There weren't a lot of people there, but the enthusiasm was abound by the roughly two dozen people present.
There were no Elements here, there had never been a need for it. The Logging Consortium provided their own private security that extended to the entire village, not that those associated with the Darbyton Rangers needed it. Some have suggested that Darbyton is the safest place to be on Scalvoris, especially these trials. People here took care of themselves and their own. Halfway through the ninth break, the children were called up from the river, and the party set into full swing.
Talieson was three goblets deep in wine, and was playing a fast little diddy for the people to dance too. And no one cared that it was morning, the drinks flowed freely, to foreigners and natives alike. It was their day off, and it was beautiful out, the children were happy, and the food was delicious. And while Scalvoris Town and Almund had their issues lately, they were far off and someone else's problem. There were no deadly cults or serial murderers here, no buildings collapsing, no mass death or destruction. Just the party and the sunshine.
As the dancing kicked into high gear, men and women alike began pairing off, and a line dance began. The Darbscoot Boogie. They put their right boot in, they put their right boot in and hip thrusted across the floor. They did the Darbscoot Boogie and smooched each other all about. The music was infectious, the dance easy to pick up on, the kisses and dance partners came and went, and the booze continued to pour. By the tenth break, two full pigs were roasting over a fire. There was far more food and booze than there were people at this point, so everyone had plenty.
It was a great day in Darbyton, and it was only just beginning.
