The festival stirred her into a restless, enthusiastic little thing, rampaging from one booth to the next, a heathen along the ramparts, ducking in and out of crowds, laughing hysterically at the essence of springtime, at the curls and flows of peace. She was a piece of roaming fire, a coal, an ember, streaking through the boundaries and fringes at a frenetic pace, struggling to pick and choose which game or stall to interact with next.

But then one finally managed to catch her eye, and Fangorn, bless his vampire gourd heart, came up behind her, gasping and reeling when she’d ceased her motion for a moment of contemplation. She eyed the long board with several holes cut out, one at the top, several more inclined towards the bottom, perhaps an easier progression, more difficult as they got further away. Her gaze flicked to the sacks on the ground, then watched several others participate; how they tossed the bags into the hole, some sliding across the wooden chassis or falling off altogether, dismays and exultations pervading the surrounding.

It looked like an excellent way to practice precision, to fundamentally train while having a good time.

She smirked, she grinned, she batted her eyes and took a set of the sacks from the attendant’s hands, and lined herself up with one of the boards. The youth recalled, remembered, grounding herself, an anthem more than one instructor had given her, feet pressed tightly into the earth as she leaned forward, swinging her arm back; an image of gourds swinging at targets blossomed in her mind. But they wouldn’t need to be given so much force.

She released the first, and watched it glide across the painted surface, straight into the first threshold. Out of habit and glee, the girl fist-pumped, congratulating herself on the meager achievements, then eyed the more difficult intervals.

"Practicing for our training session, are we?" Vervain's laughter bubbled across to Melita as she approached, having watched the firework of a girl practice her throws and celebrate her successes.

The witch Melita had met in the Glade was a different creature now - as would undoubtedly be evident from the newborn babe wrapped securely against her chest. Felix cared little for the festivities, snoring his adorable little head off, but that left Vai free to enjoy the sights and sounds around her.

And so she had come across Melita, nodding now at one of the more difficult targets. "Onwards and upwards, as they say. I bet you can get that one to hit as well." She smiled crookedly, more than happy to cheer her on.

“Melita!” Lily calls to the younger redhead, seeing her before the other woman. The entertainer  is flushed and jubilant as the Festival bringing a certain glow to her skin that only happiness can. She comes up behind Melly, and then sees the Fangorn, the sacks, and the boards. Her head tilts in curiosity at what she’s doing. Then her gaze travels to the other lady as she speaks - and oh! She has a baby!

Her face immediately crinkles into that ‘awwww’ look that so many women get while looking at a newborn. What a world it’s been brought into, she thinks. It’s crazy, having kids. Even crazier in a new world. But oh, love, and life, and…

“Is that the game? Try and hit the wall? Is this something the Naturals do?” Cause Lily wants to be authentic and shit. All her friends are Outlanders except Amalia, and she’d really like to try and bridge the gap she’s heard of. Her eagerness belies that she wants to play and is just waiting for an invite as she looks expectantly between Melita and Vervain

The spark and sizzle of amiability brushed against her senses, and she grinned again, turning her head over her shoulder to find Vai and Felix behind her. “Of course!” A wink extended across her left eye, and then she twisted back, lowering her stance again to hopefully secure another sack into one of the farther-away holes. Remain grounded she told herself again, especially now that she had an audience, and she imagined herself growing roots through the soil, stable and stationary, not a leaf guided on the wind or a seed blown into the mist. The sack sailed once more, landing just short of the hole, but momentum and force must’ve carried it just enough for it to bound into the aperture. Her smile was a beatific, lissome grace as she shifted back towards Vervain and her newborn.

“Would you like to try?” Another pouch laid in her palm, eager and fervent, yearning to be utilized for the silly sport. Before anything else could be considered though, another voice sprung through the air, calling out her name. She glanced and found Lily, a fellow redhead, scarlet and vibrant, parading towards them, and the tranquil, serene feeling of being surrounded by friends was such a raw blessing, Melita couldn’t help crying back out to her. “Lily!” She continued coming, intrigued by the entertainment at hand, and the honeybee child wandered back up to the boards and the drawn line. “Watch, I’ll show you!”

She demonstrated again, steadfast and strong, aiming for the farthest hole. Her arm reached back, and then her assail was drawn as she lifted her arm up. The sack flew, landed with a thunk, then fell back into the hole. Hm. Her accuracy still needed some work. But then she was back at Lily’s side with a quick, swift stride, placing one of the many bags into her hands. “Give it a shot!” Her excitement and energy was a palpable, tangible thing, wired and twisted and floating into the sanction, imploring her companions to join her in merriment.

As always, it was a pleasure simply to be around Melita; her exuberance was contagious, and for a moment Vai actually considered her offer before remembering the newborn cradled against her. It would probably not be worth disturbing him, for one, and besides, that was sort of frowned upon, right? Throwing things about while carrying a baby, she meant.

Before she could politely decline, however, Lily's voice rang out to them and Vai turned to smile over her at the other woman. She hadn't met her formally, she didn't think, but LongNight had made most faces familiar.

So while the two redheads greeted each other, Vai offered a polite nod of greeting, before grinning as Melita stepped up to try her luck again. "Practice makes perfect," she reasoned. "Is there a prize for hitting all of them, or...?" Throwing things for fun was all well and good, but games usually had a reward, if she remembered correctly.

Eh. Lily wouldn’t tell on Vervain if Melita wouldn’t. If the baby isn’t waking up to the noise of the two redheads’ exuberance, he might be able to stand a little jostling.

But what does Lily know, she’s never been a mother, and doesn’t have any real plans to ever be one. Intentionally, that is.

After watching Melita throw the sand bag, she takes one and feels the heft of it in her hand, mentally weighing it and poorly calculating how much effort she’ll need to get it to the holes. She makes a face, but is as equally determined. Lily steps up to where Melita threw the bag from and tosses it once or twice in her hand. Then with a squint towards the target, she leans forward and heaves it underhand. It sails and hits the edge of the slats, just before the hole. She laughs at herself, then turns to Vai, offering up another little bag. Fuck it. “Do you want a try?”

Not that they’re trying to peer pressure her, or anything.

She saw Vai’s hesitation; which was fair, considering the bairn strapped to her chest – but if he remained still and quiet despite the rest of their frivolous antics, perhaps he’d be fine? She wasn’t going to pressure her, but the teasing grin remained, ebullient and whimsical, a tiny bit of fey tethered to her features. “We won’t know until you try,” and then she winked, she shrugged, uncertain of a prize but willing to continue giving it a go despite the unknown.

Her eyes shifted, body turned, to watch Lily’s attempts. For her first venture, it was admirable, only just managing to miss the opening. “Well done!” Melita proffered with a heartfelt whoop thereafter, stepping up to launch another bag, aiming to hit Lily’s and send it flying into the hole, where it belonged. It sailed again, effortless and carefree, pinpointing on the edge of Lily’s and sending them both into the sanction. It was a precision she hadn’t been known for, and she couldn’t help but smile at it. Perhaps she was getting better, becoming more attentive, striving to hit the mark instead of simply brandishing a weapon and praying for the siege to be successful.

But she hated for Vai to be left out – gaze adjusting back to the older woman and her child. Maybe one of them could hold him? Though – truth be told, she wasn’t sure if anyone would trust her with a baby.

For Vai's part she was thoroughly enjoying simply watching the other two women try to hit their marks, and whilst she was unable to applaud their efforts without running the risk of waking her baby, the congratulations was written all over her face. As both Melita and Lily turned to try and tempt her into the game as well, she let out a soft laugh and glanced down at Felix, still happily snug and asleep against her chest. With a sigh that did not sound at all disappointed, she finally relented.

"Oh, I suppose one couldn't hurt," she said, stepping up and taking up one of the bags. An archer, she was more used to drawing a bow than she was throwing projectiles, but this couldn't be too different, right? With her free hand supporting Felix, she narrowed her eyes and took aim.

As it transpired, arrows were not that different to this form of ammo (go figure), and Vai managed to toss the bag into the opening, following after Lily's and Melita's. "Ha! There." She grinned, triumphant.
