About

Welcome to the Summer festival! Lanterns are lined along the streets, colourful stands selling masks, fairy lights hanging over top, delicious scents of the food drifting through the air, quite music, Yosakoi dancers, people dressed in Yukata's, game stands being played. At the end of the evening fireworks will shoot up into the sky.

Summer festival

The point of this summer festival is for small paper lanterns containing a burning flame are either set afloat to the river or they are let go and float away into the night. Their light is intended to guide the way for deceased family members' spirits.

"Lets go get food!" Kuro smiled, linking arms with Hiroto before going into the festival area.

Shiro
As Shiro was walking into the festival area she began to grow hungry and nervous
I shouldn't be here right now she thought. Shiro couldn't resist the smell of the dumplings
and taiyaki though. So she went to the nearest food stand and bought some dumplings and a taiyaki.
She sat down at a bench nearby and munched on some of her meal.

"It smells really good," Kuro beamed before taking a bite out of her takoyaki. She wasn't sure if she liked it however the Takoyaki had a unique taste.

The fair young girl walked down the lantern-filled streets, admiring the glowing beauty of this years Summer Festival. She couldn't help it... Five seconds later, two candy apples were being held in her hands, and she had already taken a bite out of one. "Mhmm~!" She practically hummed to herself. She took a few steps forwards, but someone ran straight into her without a seconds notice, knocking the young Miki off of her feet. "Oi! Watch were you're going, baka!" She yelled at the guy, boiling in anger on the ground. She took a look at her yukata, and sighed. Her mother had paid tons of yen for this one, yet it was all dirty and crumpled... The worst thing that happened was: her caramel apples were ruined, and splattered all over the ground. "..."

She scurried down the steps of her apartment, and rushed out of the building. Of course, she had slept in, resulting in her missing the starting of the new years festival, again. Inori felt her ribbon-laced dress flow around her, and she smiled. Even though she didn't own a yukata, this outfit was special enough.
Eventually, the pink-haired girl arrived, and she stopped dead. The glow in her eyes was unmistakable: it was beautiful. She smiled gently, though this smile was of pure happiness, and a rare one at that.
As she ventured deeper, she saw many stalls: goldfish, caramel apples- She stopped when she heard a female yelling, and glanced at her. "..." She wanted to go and help, but... Instead, she just passed by, faking the oblivious attitude.
Ah... My feet are starting to hurt from all of this walking... She started thinking after about 30 minutes. usually that wouldn't do anything, but she hadn't eaten yet, and she didn't have any money...

Weiss shows up in the festival and heads to the shooting gallery to get a prize "I'll shoot them down"
Owner gives her a gun and begins shooting but she misses due to moving fast. Angrily she briefly shoots crystals in her finger and hit the big prize. "Looks like I got this" The owner feels shocked decides to give her to avoid trouble. She moves to look for food stalls but hears someone feeling worried about not having money.

Nemesis walked down the beautiful streets, all covered by lanterns, stands and games, happiness and joy surrounding all. She chuckled to herself.
'I'm so glad I get to enjoy this event. Aedon always get to enjoy all other events started school and such, so I'm overjoyed that she let me go to the summer festival. How exciting!'
Nemesis adjusted her shirt a bit, feeling it come down again. She didn't feel the need to dress in a yukata, so she ended up going casual. She still tried to figure out what to do.
'Should I eat, or mingle? Maybe even play a game? I think I'll just enjoy the moment for now.'

Miki stood up, and dusted off her outfit. Other than the caramel apples, everything so far was alright... Well, there isn't any time to mope around about spilled milk... She thought, crossing her arms and walking down the crowded streets. Eventually, she gave up on trying to participate, as everything was already filled with people. She left the main area, and ended up walking up some crumbly and old steps. After a while, she realized that this may lead to a temple, as it was taking forever to walk up.
As she neared the top, Miki stopped, turning around. She eyed the town, and the festive glow of the festival. Pretty...

Kuro had manished to separate from Hiroto and Leiko as they got distracted by the game stalls, trying to prove who was better.

"This place really is magical," she smiled from the steps leading to the nearby shrine.

She fixed the crescent moon shaped clip in her hair

Miira gazed up at the cherryblossom trees, a coin purse in hand. In the reflection of her eyes, the stars shone brilliantly. As she continued walking down the stairs leading to the shrine, she found an unexpected acquaintance standing there, admiring everything.
"Ileya-?" Before I could finish my sentence, I was whisked away, my arms pinned.
"Who are-"
[this event took place in the previous reply, so I'll just skip it to keep it short ^^]
In the end, I could only hear my footsteps. 'Geez, that girl... I didn't expect it to come to this.'

| | flash - back | |
Basically, the two had a small fight, and Ileya ran away. Simple. ^^

In the distance Kuro could see a red haired girl sitting down on one of the steps.

"There's someone else up here?" she mumbled to herself.

She continued to walk up the steps.

Miki saw the girl approaching, and stood up. She wasn't exactly social, and she wasn't planning on talking to anyone at the festival. She picked up her small coin pouch, and put it on her wrist. Once again, she brushed off her outfit, making sure it looked clean enough. Mom is going to be angered when she sees my yukata... Even one spec of dirt on anything makes her angry... She sighed, tucking a piece of red hair behind her ear.

Weiss gave her some money at least half of it in a quick and move on. While there she thought of going to the temple and the moment she reach the steps. "This slippers are hard to walk up, oh well better remove them' Removes them and before she goes up, sees a two people in a distance.

Nemesis walked to the many food stands and decided on eating first. After all, she was hungry, and the food did look delicious!

Shortly after eating (in which she enjoyed every bite), Nemesis took a long walk down the many bustling and colorful streets, admiring the scenery. The girl stopped in front of a stand that sold a variety of items, ranging from precious stones to pottery and other Japanese art. The girl decided on buying a beautiful fan, the color of azure. She continued to walk, admiring the artwork in her hands, before settling on a bench, taking a breather.

"This place sure is busy!" she said to herself. She looked down at her fan again, fanning herself with a small smile planted on her lips. "But, it sure is beautiful ~ "
