    Seyyal had won the Volleyball Tournament with her partner Maddie!

    Partially to celebrate that and partially just because she wanted to party with her.. well... party, she had planned out a beach day with the others. Sand, sun, bathing suits, and barbecue. Or at least that's what they seemed to call cooking out over a fire here.

    Seyyal herself had decided to wear pretty much the same thing she had for volleyball the previous weekend. A somewhat plain halter top bikini under a t-shirt and boardshorts. Her sandals put away for safe keeping with the bags of supplies and the coolers they had dragged out there into the sand. The warm, coarse sand that felt so comforting to her feet.

    Assorted meats, and a few vegetables too, were slowly roasting over the coals she and the others had been tending to. Filling the air with the scents of cooking food along with the pleasant salty taste of the sea breeze. Seyyal stepped away to cast a handful of sand into the air and summoned one of her blades to carefully slice a portion of the meat. Tender, but not ready yet. The blade cast back out into just plain sand as she tossed it away again.




    OOC: no posting order. Originally intended for the Lionesses to gather and potentially come across Lycia the first time but anyone who might be invited by one of them or perhaps would wander by are welcome to post. Setting is a little ways out in a more private portion of beach, on Friday the 14th of June afternoon/evening.

    Sabra Dawnlight, Defender of Friendship! Seeker of Justice! Champion of the Princess... was laying on a towel in the middle of the sand near by the barbecue. She hadn't touched the grill much at all, her hand at cooking was made more for the broad strokes of combat, not the delicate movements of preparing food properly. At most she had cooked for her friends... a few times. Mostly charring some meat and calling it good. While she lay there in her one piece swimsuit and short shorts for swimming she heard Seyyal cutting the meat a bit.

    Opening one eye to look over at Seyyal, "You sure you don't want any help? I know I'm not the best helping hand... but I feel bad if I don't ask I'd be a bad friend." The strong woman shrugged, trying to be supportive, in this land of plenty and relative safety. Sabra's gaze turned back up to the sky, "Ever since we got here... I kind of feel a little... useless here..."

    Lottie was busy digging out a circular trench in the sand not to far in the distance. For her beachwear she wore an oversized white t-shirt and some gym shorts which hide a one piece bathing suit. Her usual boots were laid out on a beach towel but her iconic hat is still resting on her head. The smell of delicious food being cooked prompted Lottie to halt her work as she walks over barefoot. As she walked over she managed to catch the tail end of Sabra's conversation.

    "Ppfffttt... you being useless? You could carry the three of us on you back and not break a sweat. Your more useful that you let on." blurted out Lottie whom suddenly appeared next to Sabra. She pats her friend reassuringly while smiling reassuringly "And if you still feeling that way... you could always try to help me construct Castle Brightburn."

    Lottie then looks to her glorious sand castle, which consists of only a large dug out moat and rectangular sand block in the middle. Her attention turns to the volleyball champion.

    "So how is the feast coming along chef? I can smell it all the way over there."

    "Chef? Please, I can barely do more than slap some meat over a fire and only mostly avoid burning it," Seyyal grinned back at Lottie before looking over at Sabra. It was true the other girl had... let's just say limited culinary talents. But feeling like she couldnt help just wouldn't do. This was supposed to be a fun day.

    "Well if you're sure you dont want to just relax and soak in the sun you could help me lift and turn the spit here. I can do it but... like Lottie said, you're much stronger than us," Seyyal gently coaxed Sabra. Either she'd relax, feeling her offer had at least been made or she'd help. Either way it was good.

    She pulled out a small bucket of what smelled like a mixture of spices and something sweet. Barbeque sauce to coat the meat in. A special brand that one of their acquaintances had recommended. Seyyal felt utterly ridiculous using a sort of brush to paint this sauce on the meat.

    "I sure hope this is how you're supposed to do it...," her laugh was joyful. They had been a little disjointed and distracted as a group as they each adjusted but this was so nice.

    Alaric had spent the brunt of his early day preparing for this. He was wearing a pair of red swim trunks with a distinct gold trim, and a simple white t-shirt. He was flying up pretty high, thankfully he had good vision, and a sense of smell. He'd definitely spot them before they saw him. Finding Seyyal and Lottie was simple enough, he could smell the cooking, and he'd recognize that hat anywhere.

    The dragon boy began his descent, coming in a little too fast. That said, he wasn't landing too dangerously close to anyone. He landed a decent way off with a tiny burst of flames, and a chain of draconic grumbling. Then he took a moment to get his bearings, and joined the group.

    "Uh... hey Lottie, Seyyal..." he looked at Sabra. Nope, he hadn't met this Lioness yet. Sage didn't seem to be around either. "I guess I made it to the party huh?"

    His tail swayed as he looked around, not quite sure what to expect from this gathering.
