Ariel’s grin grew as she drew close to the front door, albeit a bit clumsily. Walking with heels was more difficult than it looked, and she was desperate for a place to sit and rest. As she got closer, she was able to hear some lively music and laughter drift from the open windows. This place is almost like the club! It has the same feeling of life and everything!
She happily sighed and started to push the door open. For a brief second she saw a flash of gold from the corner of her eye, then suddenly leave; it was under one of the windows, then, it suddenly left her line of vision. That’s odd. Hm…
Ariel shrugged and opened the door wide, slowly stepping in and looking around in awe. The whole space seemed homey, decorated with mismatching wooden tables and chairs. Antlers from deer and animal heads decorated the walls. Some axes and other weapons were thrown into the wall. The stage at the very back had a worn, patched curtain and a beat up piano, and there was a bar to the side.
"This is amazing! Oh my gosh, the music; it makes me want to dance!" Ariel giggled and twirled away from the door, dancing toward the tables. As she twirled, she saw someone wave to her, causing her to slow down and stop. She blinked and met his gaze, eyes widening with recognition.
"Kristoff?" She smiled brightly and hurried over. "Kristoff, hi!" The excited princess pulled a chair over and sat down across from him. "Oh gosh, I haven’t seen you in a while! How are you?"

Sally breathed a sigh of relief as she sat for a moment. No one had screamed and pointed at her and nobody had tried to chase her away, which was good. She breathed a couple of deep breaths before she realised the woman next to her was talking to her. Looking from under her coat, she observed the woman next to her. She wore a dress which was far more … revealing, than she’d normally wear but each to one’s own. Coming back from her thoughts, Sally looked down at where her hands were under her cloak and twiddled her thumbs and nodded in agreement with her. “I can’t say I have been here before but it is curious why they’re frightened of such a simple cooking utensil. Do you know who’s performing tonight?” Sally paused for a moment before realising she hadn’t introduced herself. “I’m Sally, by the way”. Automatically she extended a hand from underneath her coat to shake.

Bert beamed as the piano picked up and the red-headed girl started dancing, happily clapping along after finishing his drink. Aaah, yes, this was definitely worth the hike. Proper merriment, all around. Fresh scenery, fresh adventure, and there was a prickle behind his ears that magic and mischief had to be afoot. Always a good combination. A proper dose of madness a day was important for one’s sanity.
A familiar face amongst the crowd making it’s way toward the bar made his own expression light up, pushing his way toward the man regardless of what other conversation he had found himself in previously, “ROG! Glad you coul’ make it out, mate! Another round! On him!” He gave the man a hearty pat to the back as he flagged down the bartender to ensure he’d be included in the next batch of drink.
Roger almost protested before he remembered the piles of weapons everyone seemed to be hefting about. If this place even accepted pounds, it would be a safe bet to get on his fellow drinkers to be on their good sides. “Ah- thanks, old boy… You can pay me back in overtime,” he grinned as he rolled his eyes. Things looked much less intimidating from the inside, though. He noticed quite a few familiar looking ladies, and lifted a glass of whatever the house special was at Jess and Sally with an easy smile.
