>You kind of have, when you putzed around the university. You have a weird kind of rapport with her.

>You require repurpose your old mask-selling booth. It helpfully has lockable wheels and a handle, so it's reasonably easy to tug down toward the market. Reasonable easily, the roads are dirt, rough, and swampy. But you put on good tires with treads to get through it.

>It would have been done collectively, like all village decisions are.
>The easiest places to set up with be along the outskirts of the market, but that also means little traffic. You could try to set up further in, but that means it will be harder to find a space to squeeze in.
>As you approach the market, you see a stage has been set up along one edge of it. The Prismrivers are there, playing away. Behind them is a much taller woman with short red hair, wearing a white jacket and skirt, playing on a drumset that has at least some outside world instruments(?) built into it.

>Dangit...
>You recenter yourself. Looking around, you can try to squeeze in between a crepes stand and a brazed cucumber stand. Squeeze in being quite literal, there is just enough room and you would almost surely be in the way, and vice versa. There's a spot between two houses, further away, that might work if you don't mind blocking off the people who are using it as a way to pass through. And there's spots on the outskirts.

>That would be the first.
>You squeeze your stand in between the two others, with barely enough space for a finger between either. The crepes seller, a tall turquoise-haired kappa you really don't know, gives you some dirty looks, but customers keep her occupied. The other is too busy to really notice, a shorter kappa with short dark hair and glasses that you think you kind of recognize as a friend of a neighbor's.

>You set up the sign and wait. The crepes shop is doing quite well. Well enough the owner nearly elbows you accidentally a few times. The braised cucumbers don't seem to be doing as well, but you think it is competing with too many other stands.
>As for your service, there don't seem to be any immediate takers, So you watch the Prismrivers play. Lunasa is as subdued as always, only slightly swaying to the turn as she plays. Merlin dances all over the stage in contrast, trumpeting away. Lyrica is stuck to her keyboard, which she has mounted on the stage, but she makes up for it by adding seemingly random footwork as she plays. The redhaired youkai matches their intensity, moving her hands and arms intricately as she plays.
>"Hey," says the dark-haired kappa after a few minutes. "What're you selling, anyways?"
