March 13th-15th A day of celebration for the ten year anniversary since the residents of The Pines retook their home from the evil that lived within. The fair features an abundance of fried foods, a vegetarian booth, live bands, rides and minigames.

Ten years has worn on Kralie more than one would think. He stepped away from the sink and washed away the past few days' worth of stubble before putting on a freshly-pressed shirt and slacks. He sighed, stepping out of the bathroom. He met Jenny in the living room before walking outside and getting into his beat-up old bug. The fair was already well underway when they arrived. He let Jenny go and went to find the powers that be so he could run this thing.

The last time the town held a fair, the fences fell and Stephanie disappeared. 

That's all Jenny
can think of as she beelines for the food stands. She hadn't eaten all day and she was
dying for the fair-famous fried chile watermelon. At the stand, people let her cut in
front. They don't make her pay, so she drops $10 into the tip jar. Being the mayors
daughter had it's advantages, I guess.

Jen plops down into a familiar red-painted picnic table. You know, the ones that sit
outside of the elementary schools and over by the dog park? That one. She crosses her
ankles and pokes at the fruit with her fork. Where could she buy a beer?

Niamh didn't have anything to sell. Since her etsy account went through and became kind of popular, she made enough money to live comfortably here in Alaska. She could sell here, sure, but sometimes it was nice to just enjoy life. She sat in the beer garden, and she already had a few in her system.

 When Kralie doesn't return (she spots him talking to some big bankers by the
tilt-a-whirl) Jenny stands out of the table and starts walking towards the beer
garden, plate of spicy fruit in one hand and her phone in the other.

Unfortunately, Jenny wasn't the most coordinated of people, so when she reaches the beer
garden her sneaker catches on an unsteady piece of sidewalk, she can't help but to fall
forwards into somebody's lap, spilling the fried food all over the both of them.

Niamh was sitting back and drinking a beer when someone tripped over her and sent their food -- and her drink -- all over the both of them. "Oh, my God, I am so sorry." said Niamh, standing up to clean herself up. She had been sitting in the aisle already, and she took full responsibility of the fall.

 "No, fuck, I wasn't paying attention. Totally my fault. Are you okay?" Had she
kicked her? Elbowed her? Thrown semi-hot grease in her eye? The girl looked fine, so Jenny
relaxes a little, and looks at her own beer-soaked attire. Whatever, it's not like it
wouldn't have been by the end of the night.

She motions to the vendor. "Let me buy you another."

"I'm fine, and thanks." said Niamh with a smile. It was still daytime, and Niamh rested under fiery curls that unique only to her. She recognized the girl who tripped over her immediately, and backed up a step. "Jenny?" She asked, casting a quizzical glance.

 Another person who'd heard about her disappearance, or wanted something from the
mayors daughter --

-- oh, neither. It takes a minute, but Jenny soon enough remembers the girl from the 'Ice
in the Park' holiday event. "Niamh." She answers, a subtle nod tipping her chin towards
her. She steps towards the vendor and orders two beers, then turns to the redhead, leaning
her hip into the truck. "Good to see a familiar face."

"Oh, I'll say. I just went down to see my foster mum in Fairbanks, and it was the most comforting feeling in the world. Back here, though." She smiled, taking a beer and fishing a bottle opener from her keychain. "Want me to do yours, too?" She asked.

"That'd be nice." She hands the beer over and listens to her pop the top off, then
watches the cap roll off into the grass behind the vendor truck. She nods and walks over
to where her fruit was strewn across the ground, promptly plopping her ass down onto the
concrete without a care. "Must be nice to get away from all of this." Not that it was that
bad anymore. paranoid Jen glances around them before relaxing her back against a
heavy potted plant.

"Oh, yeah, it was." She said, looking down into the bottle. "I'm thinking about taking a pilgrimage back to Ireland back in a few years. Track down my family, or what's left of it."

 Jenny opened her mouth to reply, looked up - but the girl was gone, whisked away
into the crowds. Jen stands and rolls her shoulders, sipping at her beer as she glances
around. Nobody recognizable had showed up.

At least, not yet. 

Jen wanders through the throngs of people until she's at the hot dog vendor - finally,
something to eat. Something that she, hopefully, wouldn't knock over or spill and throw
onto any other cute girls. She orders a foot-long chili dog and begins tapping away at
some game on her phone.

 Day two of the fair was much more her style. It was busier, and although the
crowds made her anxious, Jenny was always able to sneak away during the opening with the
Goldhirsch kids and get a good deal on their greens. They usually smoked behind the ferris
wheel, but after what'd happened with Caroline at last years county fair, Jenny tried to
stay away from the place. Bad memory association and all. At least the lights weren't
flickering.

And so, that's how Jenny ended up leaning against the fried food vendor puffing on the end
of a Marlboro cigarette. She brings it to her lips in random intervals, distracted by the
combination of music and emails on her phone.

Joe Mott stood on the other side of that very same booth, eating out of a basket of cheese fries. His granddaughter, who was growing up quick, napped happily in the stroller the was resting on. The little girl was almost a year old and could already walk and talk, burbling in her little unintelligible voice. The baby was woken up and started to bawl, scared in her new (and crowded) surroundings. Joe put the fries down and picked her up.
