everywhere || action || open

[Surely many of our residents are more than familiar with the Cherry Blossom Café, the cozy little place currently run by Syaoran, and the Candy shop which Lancelot is now in charge of. The CBC is difficult to ignore, with its pink theme, and the candy shop being so close-by means most people would've noticed it at least in passing...

Well, it seems Miracle Country decided that having them so close but apart was a bit of a waste, and so, if you go to these shops today, you'll notice some changes. Both places will now be connected by a large patio, where a small sakura tree is now growing. Aside from tables set out for anyone who wants to enjoy the shops' food, there's a pretty fountain to one side of it, and while you can simply walk through the patio itself, there's now a small, cute bridge connecting both places, signaling their cooperation from now on.

To celebrate this union, there'll be themed items available in both places , with the CBC carrying a special selection to honor the candy shop's last owner. Yes, today it's a very sweet menu for both places...

And just in time, too. The tradition of giving a candy in exchange for a kiss is back, and so our helpful (?)Usyagi will be handing out cute flyers of the newly connected shops to people who might not know of the change, along with a free sample of candy, so they'll go and give them a try. Of course, the invitation also reminds people of the tradition, and encourages them to give it a try. Even the grumpy or apathetic ones might find themselves really wanting to hand out candy to others, or reluctantly giving a kiss in exchange for any they're offered themselves, even if they might not usually be so keen on the idea.]

[[Our workers can be found here, here, and here, otherwise feel free to mingle among yourselves! Threads don't have to happen in the shops' areas either, as the event covers the whole place.]]

[The video starts from what would probably remind the modern-era characters of a shooter game POV. The journal is being held up with one hand, as Aramis's other one holds his gun, and fires to one of the wooden targets he's got set up near the lighthouse at the beach, hitting it right in the centre.

Aramis then turns the journal to face himself, and shows that he's got that blue cloth he usually wears around his waist tied up around his eyes.]

I was told I should say something about this, so here we go. What you just saw, while obviously very impressive [he smirks, pleased, like the insufferable show-off he is, and there's a chuckle that's clearly coming from Porthos who's also there with him] is also the result of many, many years of practice and training.

It should be obvious, but we [he turns a little to pat his shoulder guard proudly] are trained soldiers, the best in all of France.

Any beginner attempting the sort of things they might see me doing, well... [He holds out his hand and grabs another pistol he's handed, carelessly pointing it towards the targets area without looking. When he shoots, the shot misses and hits the lighthouse's wall] They'd be lucky to do that much, if they don't manage to blow off their hands.

As soldiers, we know what we're doing, and we know our weapons and our skills. And we do need to practice often.

So if you see us doing this, or shooting at something on our heads, or even [He hands back the pistol to Porthos but tugs his hand close to press the gun against himself, not seeming the slightest bit bothered as the barrel presses against his throat] something that looks more dangerous, it is by no means an invitation for you, and especially children, to try and do the same. And we are not in any danger, despite what it may seem like.

I hope we're clear on this. [He smiles politely and ends the video]

[It's time for candy! All around Kiseki, for the following three days, Welcome Center ladies will be offering samples of candy for people to give away. And everyone will receive a little pamphlet, explaining the idea behind this - when someone gives you a piece of candy, you should thank them through a kiss! Kisses on the cheek, hand, etc. are perfectly fine, of course.

But what if you're a grump who refuses to participate, or too shy for it, you happen to not trust Kisekians with anything, or simply don't care? Well, don't worry, because this tradition is just awfully tempting. Your character may find that they simply can't resist giving away candy to others, maybe even to their worst enemy! And sometimes they simply won't be able to stop themselves from thanking this gesture through the necessary kiss.]
