History:
Isabel Bennet was born to two wealthy werewolves. She had no other siblings. She has lived in Orchard Valley all her life, and it's where she met her best friend. When they met, Isobel was just 14 years old, but Belinda was already over 300. They became friends very quickly despite the age difference, and just a few years ago her friend's grandparents left behind the town's apartment complex. Izzy and her friend went into business together, and they've been doing it ever since.

Recently their love lives haven't been going so well, so they decided to make a bet: first one to get engaged wins.

June 10th, 10:00 a.m.

The town of Orchard Valley was unusually awake at the moment, everyone bustling to prepare for the Summer Moon Festival that would start at noon. Shopkeepers and artists were setting up display booths, and restaurant owners had called in more help than usual to get ready for this day. Until six o'clock, tourists and townspeople would visit booths to learn about the latest in silver detection, magical aids, coconut water cocktails, and other supernatural crafts and inventions. At eight, everyone would gather in Plum Square, aptly named as it was plum in the center of Orchard Valley, for the dance. At mifnight, the dance would end, and tipsy townspeople would stumble on home while buzzed tourists would trip their way to their hotels. That's how it happened every year, and there was no indication that it would be different this year.

Nothing except the new family. They would be the first humans in attendance. But it was no matter. Everything would go on as it always had.

Ari Byron stretched his muscles from his place in the sun. He had fallen asleep on the window nook in the Owl Barn very soon after he had dragged himself down to the shop at six a.m. that morning to prepare for the festival. A lot of good that had done him. He jumped of the nook as a cat, which was his favorite animal to nap as, and landed on the ground as a human. Stretching again, he yawned hugely and started his way to the storeroom. He had no idea what Perry wanted for their booth this year, but it wouldn't hurt to see what new things they had and get a cup of coffee. Just as he was about to pass through the storeroom door, the back door's handle jiggled, and the door swung open.

Izzy Bennet flounced her way to the lobby to see Belinda backing up out of it. She smiled. "No way, Bell!" she announced. "I'm not letting you out of this." She threw her arm over Belinda's shoulder and started pulling her to the doors. "You have plenty of sunscreen, I can feel it coming off on me. I won't allow you to skip another social function."

Izzy pushed her way through the double doors, hoping her friend was following. "Nice hat, by the way," she said, not looking behind her. Belinda would (hopefully) follow. Her hair bounced with every step she took, and she got more and more excited for the festival. They weren't doing a booth this year, so they would be able to simply enjoy the festivities and see what everyone else had to offer.

"We've only got a few hours to see everything, Bell, let's go!"

Belinda weakly protested, "B-but um....okay."

She was a very weak resistor most of the time. She quietly walked behind Izzy, with short, quick steps, occasionally looking up and around, sticking close to her." Um, Izzy, maybe today's not a good day for me to go out, I mean, there will be lots of people, this is more something you like...doing."

The scent of the first pot of fresh coffee in the morning always got Mason, no matter the fact that he owned a Cafe and he was the one making that first pot. Every day. He just couldn't get tired of it. Pouring himself a cup, he glanced out the door and watched as the townspeople bustled around trying to set up their booths for the Summer Moon Festival. His watch showed that it was just past 10:00 AM so that gave him another two hours to finish setting up.

He never understood why they made him put out a booth, all he does is make coffee and food. So by putting up a booth he's basically giving away his Cafe for free. One day he would say enough with this ridiculous festival; but it was a tradition, and people in this small town were all about traditions, so he said nothing. Instead, he did his duty and set up a booth, displaying the pastries and other small food items he offered accompanied by a large coffee dispenser.

Taking a sip of the coffee, he recoiled from the mug when the hot java scorched his tongue. "Hot!" Maybe that was enough coffee for right now; at least until it cooled off. Mason set his mug down and walked into the back, checking on the muffins and pastries he had slipped in the oven. After checking to see if they were done, he brought them out and arranged them nicely on different trays. Once he had lay the trays of food on a rolling cart and loaded the coffee dispenser on there as well, he walked outside to set up his dumb booth and joined in the hustle and bustle of the town.

"This is more something you like doing," Belinda said. Izzy stopped in her tracks and turned on her heels.

"Of course it is!" She replied. "But how do you expect to meet new people if you never leave the apartments? There's a whole world out there you're missing! I know it's hard sometimes, but we gotta keep trying. I don't even have to leave your side. We can go the whole day together."

This time, she grabbed Belinda's hand. "Now, she said, are you going to leave me to face the festival alone, or are you coming with me?" She gave her best pleading puppy-dog look.

Belinda tried countering her argument. "Oh, well, people come to the apartments, it's not empty, so I see them occa-"

Then Izzy did it. The puppy-dog look. Oh she did not like turning down the puppy-puppy-dog look, whenever she did she felt guilty for days onward. "Isobel, this is how you remind me I'm much older than you and far too soft hearted, you know I can't say no when you put it like that," she sighed. "It is only a few hours anyway..."

Izzy beamed. She knew Belinda would go for the puppy dog look, just as she always did.

"Great!" she announced. She grabbed her friend by the hand and pulled her through the doors, not wasting any more time. "Now, it's not important that we hit all the booths, but it's important that we hit most of them." She continued down the sidewalk to Plum Street, not looking behind her.

"There's something different every year," she said. "I know you'll have fun."

Belinda did, however, look back, noting that they kept getting farther away. Only for a moment, as she began looking around as they went along. Oh, a lot has changed since I last passed by...so many more people, even for this time of year... we're getting so far. I don't think I've ever wandered about the town. I've mostly walked through the forest. I wonder what the town looks like at night.

"I think everything will be new and different for me, Isobel," Belinda said softly.
~~~

They were having something. An event or something. Not that Henry cared.

They had been unpacking, and hadn't really left the new house, but now that everything was unpacked and neatly arranged in the house, Henry really couldn't figure out a new excuse to sit in the house. Especially with whatever the hell was going on outside. His dad was probably itching to go, if he hadnt already.

He reached for a key he had placed on his night stand, which he had found while he had been unpacking. It was probably silver, though it was pretty damn tarnished when he found it, but some soaking in baking soda was all it needed for polished glory. It had a rococo design, like those old timey keys. What where they called again? Skeleton keys? Was it supposed to open something?

As he ran a thread through the key, wondered why the owners had left it behind. Or why he barely knew anything of the owners. In fact he knew next to nothing of this place, they moved so suddenly.

Whatever. They would probably only stay a few months, it wasn't that great. This place.

Lucifer yowled as Ari and Perry collided. The cat sprinted off to God knows where, leaving the mages facing each other.

"Come to help?" Perry asked, and without missing a beat she sidestepped him to continue on her way.

"'Come to help?'" he repeated indignantly, following her. "I've been here since six this morning, I'll have you know." He jogged a little to catch up and continued. "So what's the plan this year? Please tell me it's not shape shifting again and please tell me you've thought about it." Although their booth had been a hit last year, Ari had no desire to be the focus of everyone this year. One day was enough, and if you asked him it was a little too much.

"You know the humans are here now. Do you think they'll come?"

"I think everything will be new and different for me, Isobel," Belinda told her.

"Yeah, that's the point!" Izzy replied. "We gotta get you out of your comfort zone. Let you see the world. It's different now than it ever was and it ever will be."

When they made it to Plum Square, Izzy check her phone for the time. There was still quite a ways to go until the festival started, but it was still a sight to see. Vendors, shop-owners, and inventors were setting up stalls lining the sidewalks and even in the middle of the square. The ones that were lucky enough to be located in Plum Square, like the café, the magic shop, and the bookstore were set up in front of their places, which Izzy was sure would bring them many customers the next day. Tourists usually stayed at least one more day to see the town as it usually was.

Orchard Valley was a rare place, having only nonhuman residents to speak of. Of course, that had recently changed, but it hadn't been changed for long.

"Maybe we should get a booth next year," Izzy said.

"A booth? What for, we have nothing to show off," Belinda said, looking around, some buildings she recognized, but nearly everything was new. It made her wish she hadn't spent most of her life hiding from everyone.

"I feel a bit old that I recognize so little of this area, but of course it would seem like such a drastic change for someone who hasn't really left a small area for a little over two centuries." Her eyes suddenly fixed themselves on the cafe. She pointed," What do they serve there, Isobel?"
