A Song For You Applause. It wasn't much - it was hard to get excited over the applause of six or seven people - but it still made Shiella feel good.
It wasn't one of her songs she had just finished playing; it was just her rendition of a very old Seltycian folk song. But she thought it was a pretty good one, and judging by the coins thrown at her feet, her little audience agreed. It was just a shame that she couldn't attract a bigger crowd.
She'd been sitting on a stone fence that ran the perimeter of the shopping district for about an hour now, strumming away at her lute, watching as passers-by slowly accumulated to watch her performance. And oh, how slow that trickle was for her.
But that was okay. After all, she had saved her best song for last. She'd spent the last few nights thinking, scribbling notes, plucking strings, and generally tuning out everything else, all for this: finally, she had composed
A Bird in the Hand He couldn't stop replaying the words in his head: "Test Your Strength." For someone like Keizen, it was almost like the man at the counter, even the wooden sign itself, was announcing a challenge just for him. One could say that Keizen had a strong interest in competition. But for him, it was more that competitions were an opportunity for him to show everyone that he had earned the right to be so arrogant.
Even better, there was a prize involved with this particular contest. Once he heard what it was, he knew he simply had to win: an arch-beak robin. Such a creature was considered an extremely rare delicacy - despite its small size, the tender, succulent meat was supposed to be enough to feed three people. And the meal was made even more complete by its unique, unparalleled eggs. He had no idea how someone had gotten a hold of one in such a dumpy carnival in such a backwater town, but that didn't matter. He had to have it.

Beautiful Music A man who's too old for this, and a girl who's too young. But that was all Keizen had to work with today. They stared at him silently from across the table. Continuing to appraise them with his eyes, Keizen calmly took a sip of his water. He wondered briefly what they thought they saw in his eyes. Could they, perhaps, sense his disapproval? Did they have some glimmer of hope that they had somehow met his standards? Sometimes, Keizen liked to play with people, lead them to believe that his psionic powers gave him the ability to read minds. Unfortunately, it wasn't true, and moments like these made him wish it was. The girl was easy enough to figure out; she was smiling politely, almost eagerly - but it was easy to see through it to how nervous she was. The man's face, however, was an unreadable mask.
"You'll do," he said suddenly, startling them by breaking the silence.
Actually, they wouldn't. But what choic
