The next day after everyone had arrived, (I'm not sure how they all knew what time to be here, I don't think we discussed it last night,) we started out with Alexander saying that the urchins had been attacked last night while we were all asleep and that we had to go over there to check if there was any casualties. Thankfully there weren't any, it could have turned out much differently though.
When we got back to the Beacon, we had bacon! Selina made it for us though I'm not sure how she did I have yet to see a stove anywhere in here. Alexander had gotten an update while we were gone saying to expect new people within the day and that we had to go collect someone from the grotto named Irving, he said that he was important to the resistance and to Alexander.
So we went back to the grotto and convinced Irving to come to the Beacon, which actually took longer than you think it would, finding him was particularly difficult, then we had to convince him which took some time as he didn't really know us. Once we got back to the Beacon again and got Irving informed of what was happening it was already lunch time.
“What do we want to eat today?” Emily asked
“We could have Mac'n Cheese, I'm not sure what would go with it but we could have that.” I suggested
“I actually really like Mac'n cheese, and pizza, we could have mac'n cheese pizza!” Dr. Meh said in excitement
“Ew, no, how about we just have baked Mac'n cheese?” Ariella said
“Why don't you like mac'n cheese pizza? You eat Pringles for a living, how do you not like mac'n cheese pizza?” Dr. Meh said in indignation
We ended up have baked mac'n cheese much to Dr. Mehs disappointment. While we waited for the new recruits we decided to play Twister! One of my favorite games, Jacoby didn't seem to like it, but when does he like most of the games we play?
It was almost nightfall by the time the new recruits arrived, there were four of them all together. Alexander called them the future inquisitorial squad of the resistance, because apparently they would do all of our questioning.
“This is Hanna Brassheart, Ilayne Merespark, Scarlet Darkhill, and May Otterview everyone, I hope to see you getting along.” Alexander said
“Hey Hanna, long time no see!” Ariella exclaimed
“Hey Ariella, how's it been?” Hanna asked
“Good, good. I see you have decided to join us in fighting Lucky. Guys this is my cousin Hanna, Hanna this is currently our resistance, Emily Purplebottle is our tracker, Aislinn Molisong is our sharpshooter, Jacoby Elderfun is our leader for the missions also the resident grumpy pants, Dr.Meh Orangescope is our Physician/Shinobi, and Silverclaw Bonnetfolly just joined us yesterday so I'm not really sure what she is yet, and then there's me, but you already know me. We're like a big family.”
We decided, after the introductions were done, that we all needed to hit the hay and that we would see each other tomorrow.
The next day we didn't do much except play board games, a lot of board games. Scatergories, Trivial Pursuit, The Settlers of Catan, Fictionary, Ticket to ride, Cranium, and Agricola, just to name a few.
We were pretty tired of board games by the end of the day. Thankfully we were given something else to do from Alexander the next day.
We have to find Lukas so he can give us a bunch of paint the he weirdly keeps in his workshop. I'm not sure why he has as much paint as he does but I wasn't about to ask. When we got back to the Beacon we were told to start painting the outside and the sooner we got that done the sooner we could come back inside. I'm not sure what he really expected us to do inside though, we on't really want to play and games at the moment and I don't think Alexander keeps anything else around.
We ended up covered in blue paint by the time we were finished, Someone started a paint war and once it was started there was no stopping it. So we all had to take showers and change clothes before we could do anything else. It was decided that we weren't allowed to do anymore of the painting.
By the time we were all gathered again it was time for dinner and then we all had to wash the dishes and clean up from where it was made, it wasn't very hard to do there was just a lot of people in the kitchen it was so crowded. We were told to go downstairs when we were done and wait for Alexander around the table.
It didn't take long for everyone to get there and once we were all there it was just the waiting game for Alexander.
“As you know,” Alexander started as he entered the room “we are fighting against Lucky to bring Aethasia back to what it once was. Well we just got word from our informant that there is going to be an attack two days from now at the harbor. I need you all to be there making sure that no one gets hurt or if you can, to stop the attack altogether before it even happens.”
