Flash Back to when Layella and the group arrive at Sorose
As the royal chariots enter the city many citizens are outside hoping to get a glimpse of the heroes. The crowds lead all the way up to the palace gates the group is split on to two chariots one with Rowoth and Layella and the other with the rest of the party. Following them are a few guards on horses and some marching behind them. As the chariots crest around a magnificent fountain, with marble children spiting water from their mouths, they come to a stop. Rowoth waves his arm in a grand gesture "Welcome to Sorose" he hops down of the chariot and puts his hand out for layella to garb on to. the group see a gigantic palace built between two mighty oaks both the size of the palace and a beautiful garden in front around the fountain.

While impressed with the beauty and elegance, Layella feels slightly overwhelmed by the grandeur of the city and their arrival and treatment as "heroes." She had hinted at this aspect to King Rowoth as they traveled, but he seemed to pay her true sentiment no mind and continued with his gestures of opulence and majesty. Though her smiles and remarks are warmer towards him now, she tries to politely inform him she is not keen on the idea of parading around on the King's arm, and keeps a small distance between them after she steps down from the chariot. The statues and ornateness of the palace is lovely, but she finds herself truly interested in something else; "This garden, how lovely. I would imagine you have absolutely breathtaking gardens here. How they must look in the moonlight..." She trails, losing herself momentarily in her excitement.
"One should never hesitate to risk everything in the name of passion, for there is no greater loss than the loss of oneself to apathy."

Rowoth notices the slight distance that layella is creating "my apologies,this was more for the people to see that they are safe thanks to the heroics of you and your friends but as long as you remain in the palace grounds no one will bother you." You notice him look up at one of the tall oaks and he out streaches his hand and catches a acorn "these gardens are protected by the humble oaks you see here and they are quite the sight when the moon light hits them just right but that is not for a few more hours I'll help you all get settled in your rooms." As you enter the palace it is quite lavish but no more so than any other you have seen before. Rowoth leads you to your rooms one for each of you in the same hallway and layella's room is right across for his. "I hope you enjoy your room if you need anything don't hesitate to ask. Goregash yells "MEAD?" Catching Rowoth of guard "uhh of course" he waves the servents who have been following you up to him. "Get this fine orc as much mead as he can drink." He looks back to layella "ill let you all get situated, if you need anything I'm right across the hall."

The group embraces one another giving there congratulations to Dain. Both Layella and Autumn chit chat about each other’s dresses, while Goregash exclaims he need for drink and Caldurn sloppily points to the large casks on the other side of the court yard. They head over to them to begin their gorging before the wedding begins. Dain and the rest of the group fill themselves with drink and grub of both dwarf and elf make. The most popular of dishes is the elf nut cake, it has light fluffy airy cake with a nut pudding filling it, and the dwarven mix meat pie, five kinds of meat, a variety of root vegetables and a flakey crust. The staff begins to usher the masses to their seats the group has front row seats. Dain is standing is his armor freshly shined by the alter, which Caldurn is slumped over on, when the bridal party horns sound and down the aisle comes Queen Kimbella Steelhide in beautiful bridal breast plate engraved with her families crest of a hawk sorrowing of over a mountain with white lace gown underneath. The ceremony is beyond words they do the dwarven knot ceremony that joins two into one. The ceremony is only interrupted by Caldurn’s forgetfulness and Dain leading him in the right directing words wise. A sweet kiss between the newlyweds and then the real party begins, the reception is mostly lost on goregash, Mino, and Caldurn do to blacking out but the rest of the group see them dancing on tables with GG’s pet bear who has a pot on its head. Dain, kimbella, Autumn, Mod and Kaleen enjoy there drink as well but Dain and Kimbella retire to their bed chambers to consummate their marriage. The rest of the group has fun drinking and laughing at the stupidity of their drunk friends. Dain brings his queen to the land of bliss and back again many times some can hear the screams from the bedroom at the party down below. With every scream of pure ecstasy it is followed by a loud roar from Caldurn “That’s my brother WOOOOOOO”. The morning sun brings not only warmth but splitting headaches and hangovers for the drunken party members. Dain is found, naked from the waist down, face down in a pile of food near Goregash and his pet bear that are cuddled together. Mino is over puking in his hat when over his loud wrecking and the sounds of maids cleaning comes the voice of a courier. SEE NEW THREAD OUT OF THE FIRE.
