Ready for a bit o' singin'? Oh, if you're wonderin' where Maisenta's gone, she's keepin' an eye on her stall. She'll be right back when it's time to get started, though.
You'd think she'd have enough on her plate already, what with all that buyin' and sellin'. Good of her to find the time─and gil─to help us lot with the festival. Her voice ain't half bad, neither.
It's hard to believe she wants someone like me to be in her choir. I don't know the first thing about music! Best I can manage is a few sea shanties, and that's only when I'm in me cups.
Might as well make the most of it, I suppose. And if we're enjoyin' ourselves, maybe the younglin's will too. As long as they stick around long enough to get their presents, we can consider it a success.
But how about you? Had a chance to practice your wand wavin'? If not...well, it's a bit late to start now, but I'm sure you'll pick it up as we go along.
It looks like we've already got a few people lined up to watch the show. You can see the Starlight celebrants herdin' them together just over yonder.
I'd watch out for that enthusiastic-lookin' lass over there, though. She's been tellin' folk about “the most lauded musicians the realm has ever known” and they seemed to be lappin' it up.
I appreciate her drummin' up a crowd like that, but I think their expectations might be a bit too high, what with this bein' our first performance. Might be an idea to start with the other lot. They seem less like to take offense to a flat note or two.
Once we're feelin' confident, we can take a crack at somethin' trickier. But you're the conductor, so you get final say as to what we sing and when.
Well, there's no time like the present! Let one of the Starlight celebrants know when you're ready to begin.
Back for more?
We've still got plenty of festival-goers to entertain, so as soon as you're ready, let one of the Starlight celebrants know.
I'm not sure what's worse─downplayin' the performance and makin' the crowd lose interest, or exaggeratin' and risk them bein' disappointed. Mind you, if our singin' is up to snuff, we'll have nothin' to worry about.
