Nathan I hope you’re not making fun of our traditions! That'll get you a day in the stocks, young lady!
Simon The ones that don't exist, you mean?
The Mage Sister Of course I'm not making fun, Nathan. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to be irreverent.
Cullen I certainly hope not!
Simon I hope so! I was just starting to have some respect for you. Besides, there isn’t a quiet spot in the entire city today.
The Mage Sister Gee. Thanks Simon. Why is it so noisy?
Nathan Today is the beginning the Autumn Festival. We spend one day in reverence of our ancestors, and the rest of the week we celebrate the bounty of the year and the beginning of a new season. It's quite a party! You should come!
Simon And they are really, really noisy about it.
The Mage Sister I'd have thought that'd be just your scene, Simon!
Cullen Well, if you had done what you were supposed to do yesterday, you wouldn’t be hung over today, Simon.
Simon I’m going to the temple.
Cullen To reflect on your sins?
Simon No, to sleep it off. It’s the only quiet place in town.
Cullen Sigh. You are hopeless, and you’re going to hell.
