Bambono's Carnival
A traveling carnival popular with all who see it currently set up in Todmorden. It holds various wonders from all round the world, from tamed beasts to mystical acrobatics. For those who don't travel it is a must see. And anyone can, so long as they pay the entree fee~

Oh what a nice walk.
No less then 4 homeless people asking for change.
It's funny how there used to be 5.
Maybe one wasn't kidding about that disease.
Ha.
"Well, I haven't been to the carnival in a while..."
In truth it had only been about 6 or so years, which probably was a while for most people.
Hopefully it was just a drop in the bucket for Reno. Elf blood and all.
He noticed the outside of the main tent had dozens of booths and stands.
"Now where's that lizard on a stick...? Reno mused, grabbing a program off a nearby table, half-checking to see if Leo and Natalie had been abducted by a local street gang or propositioned by anyone.

It had been less than 5 minutes, and Natalie was already eyeing all the shops. All the dazzling lights, all the people, all the stalls, it was amazing!! Natalie had never actually been to a festival before, and now she wished she had. To keep the amazement from her eyes would be too great a task. She couldn't help but feel like a child in a candy store.

Leo took in the sights of the carnival and let out a huge sigh. How long has it been since he'd been out with friends? 3? 4? Who knows? It's been a couple of years since he had lost his memories, so he was ready to make some new ones. Though, since he was out of money, he didn't know where to start. Maybe a sparring match? Or a test of strength? Even an eating contest would be good if he could score a little extra money off it.

"So where to first guys? Food? Games? I'm a lil short on cash, so I'll just tag along till we can find a sparring match I can partake in."

He noticed Natalie's amazement at the varies booths and shops and couldn't help but laugh.

"First time at a carnival, Natalie?"

At Leo's question, Natalie immediately snapped back to reality. "Uh-huh..." she began nervously, "Where I'm from, we don't really have carnivals..." She retained her normal shy appearance for approximately 8 seconds before something else had caught her eye, and the dazzle of amazement had returned once more.

Re: Bambono's Carnival
Suddenly the tall announcer man from before pointed his staff in the direction of the group and called out.

"Hoohoo!~ You lot there look like you are taken aback by the wondrous sights before you!"

Be moved over to Natalie and, with a puff of smoke, a crystal ball appeared, floating in front of him. The ball caught her reflection and distorted it into an amusing round shape.

"Ah yesssss...Imaged of grandeur, big dreams and big obstacles in front of you young miss. Try not to get lost in any of the new things in front of you. And you sir!"

He turned to Leo.

"A little lost are we? Just you and a trusty tool? Ah yes, reminds me of a time when a young Bambono needed to reestablish himself as well!"

He finally turned to Renorlem,

"My my, you look like someone I know, who knows you might be related! Lets take a look~"

He ball darkened in color a bit as Bambono gazed into it.

"I see, like to experience the other side of life eh? Very interesting friend, very interesting!"

He stepped back from the three and began to spin the ball on one of his fingers.

"Yes yes, I can tell, you are amazed! Haha, trust me friends, that is only the begin- oops how clumsy of me!"

The ball fell from Bambono's hands and hit the ground, creating a bright flash of light and more smoke. When it cleared Bambono was gone and three tickets rested on the ground in his place. The voice of the man rang out, seemingly from no where.

"See you all at one of the main attractions!"

A small crowd that had gathered began to clap.

Re: Bambono's Carnival
A fortune teller.
No, no, he was using far more than divination.
"Ha! What a master ruseman, that one!" Reno said, picking up one of the tickets.
Bambono knew of his relation in the carnival.
But of course, he did own the carnival.
Perhaps he WOULD stop by after all, depending on what the others wanted to do.
"Well, looks like we'll be stopping by the main tent after all, eh Leo? Let me just find that lizard on a stick..."
Time to redouble the search.
Reno took off through the small crowd, gently goading them out of the way with pushes and leaning with his long arms, looking hard for the lizard on a stick stand.

Re: Bambono's Carnival
Leo chuckled at Natalie's reply.

"It's nice to be young," he said with a bright smile. "Enjoy the attractions, enjoy the food and enjoy the festivities. You only have one life, so..."

Before Leo was able to finish his thought, the tall announcer appeared in front of them. Confused with what was happening, he took careful notice at the man's mention of Leo being "lost." Did he know something about his memories? Or was he just making a joke? Leo wanted to ask, but the man was gone just as quickly as he had appeared, but this time leaving tickets.

"I guess so. I wonder what kind of show it will be. Well, till then, a lizard on a stick does sound pretty good. Come on Natalie, let's stay together."

Leo grabbed Natalie in a kind of instinctive fatherly manner and pressed forward to stay close be Bishop as to not lose him in the crowd.

Re: Bambono's Carnival
Picking up the last ticket, Natalie nodded to Leo. "Okay." The glimmer in her eyes faded once more, as her mind wandered to what the tall man had said. Big dreams and big obstacles? What does he mean by that? Could that be something about me? But more importantly... Natalie's eyes moved towards Leo and Bishop. ...what were his comments on them about? Hmm... Natalie pondered for but a moment, before she noticed a Lizard on a Stick booth to their immediate left, just as they were about to pass it. She would've completely missed it, since there were no signs over the display. It looked so... ordinary. Her eyes were drawn to all the flashy lights, and this stand blended in so well to the background. "Ah, over here."

Re: Bambono's Carnival
Finally.
One of the only reasons to even attend such a droll and pedantic event.
Renorlem straightened himself, digging for the gold piece in his pocket.
He would give the entire thing, just for a few lizards on sticks.
"Hello. I'd like to order 3 lizard sticks, please."
Reno slammed the gold piece down on the counter.
He was already salivating.
The sweet sweet taste of vermin lizard.
Probably fried a bit too much.
The taste of crunchy flesh.
And stringy insides.
It was all just so primal.
Reno felt like a caveman in this moment, running on instinct.
Food... Good...
And nothing could ruin it once the sweet flesh was in his mouth.
"And you can keep the change. Ha ha ha!"

Re: Bambono's Carnival
The vendor's eyes widened a bit.

"A whole gold piece for three o these lizard sticks? Right you are sir! I've got three fresh ones I do, only the best for customers such as yer self."

The vendor moved around the display case shaking his head a few times until he found the good lizard sticks in the back, still steaming. He handed them over to Renorlem and nodded his head.

"Make sure you enjoy yer day sir, may it be a pleas'n one."

Re: Bambono's Carnival
There were no words in Renorlem's vocabulary to describe the intense pleasure he was feeling.
There was nothing that was wrong.
His shop could burn to the ground in this moment.
He could never find the 4 masks, as long as he had his lizard stick.
The tiny oaken spear was shoved through the lizard vertically, its tail wrapped around the stick as well.
The skin was chargrilled, while the inside meat was perfectly white like chicken, with a bit of a tang from the lizards diet.
These might even be wild lizards.
The carnival didn't really have standards or quality control.
Finally, Reno took a bite, his teeth ripping a chunk from the still steaming lizard.
It brought him back to a simpler time.

-----
"That's it, Reno! Now go for the suplex!"
"Fantastic! One, Two, Three! Hell, you could count to a hundred!
He won't be getting up anytime soon!"

-----


Renorlem snapped back to reality, his perfect grinned marred by a few strings of meat from the lizard caught in his gleaming teeth.
"Ah! Leo, Natalie! You simply must try these. Cooked to perfection."
Whatever the rest of the night brought, Reno was ready.
He held the two remaining snacks out to the group, still smiling.
He hoped Natalie wasn't a vegetarian...

Re: Bambono's Carnival
Natalie hesitantly grabbed the lizard stick. She had never tried one before. Bishop seemed to be enjoying it, and as far as she could tell, he looked fine so it must not be poisonous or anything. Well... here goes nothing! She took a bite. At first, everything was fine,but after two or three chews, she noticed she had a hard time swallowing. The taste... She couldn't get over the taste. Right then, she knew she couldn't take another bite. It simply wasn't her style. She swallowed what remained in her mouth, then handed the remainder back to Bishop. "Sorry, not really my thing. But... thank you. I've never had lizard before."

Re: Bambono's Carnival
It had been awhile since Leo had eaten anything that wasn't fish meat. The past few months he had only eaten the fish he had caught, but couldn't sell. He had thought about hunting, but he could never get rid of his fish fast enough. He took a bite of the lizard and remember the taste of a peculiar meat that he couldn't put a name to. It wasn't too savory, but packed in quite a bit of flavor. He couldn't help but enjoy it.

"This....is not that bad. It's pretty good actually. A nice change of pace from all the fish I've been eating."

Leo continued to eat the lizard until it was gone and kind of craved more. Meat is his favorite after all, and even if it was just lizard meat, it was enough to make him want more.

"That was delicious," Leo said, chuckling a bit. "Hey, Bishop. Know of any good hunting spots nearby? I may need to go on a little hunt before I head back home, hahaha."

Re: Bambono's Carnival
KILL THE NONBELIE-
"Don't worry Natalie. It's not for everyone. And it's probably not good for you, either. Ha ha ha!"
Maybe Leo wasn't so bad.
"Well... There are a few spots right outside town. It depends on what you want to hunt...
Reno eagerly tore into the remaining chunk of lizard left from Natalie, devouring it in a few seconds, the sickening crunch of bone emanating from his mouth.
"Now that that's out of the way, friends, do we not have a main event to attend?
He gestured toward the large tent, checking his pocket to make sure to ticket was still there.
Hopefully this would be a rather nondescript and unexciting day.

Re: Bambono's Carnival
Natalie nodded, but stayed by her new companions, preferring not to be the first in the tent. What wonders did it hold? Good wonders? Bad wonders? She was hesitant to enter.
