An elf maiden appeared over the horizon, she leaned over a bit, being tired from a long ride. A tall dark hood towered over her pale face. She had cold gray eyes and long brown hair. She was riding a elf horse, a stallion. It had smooth black hair, and was being ridden bareback. They both looked very tired and were happy to see a sign of life. She got off the stallion and led him into the stables. She found some apples in a barrel and brought a few to the horse to eat. After checking they were fresh, she left them in a food container at the stables and went inside the inn.
After in the inn, she found a small bar in the corner. Someone came over to her asking her if she needed anything. 'Yes, may I have a glass of wine please?' the hobbit said shook her head and arrived a few minutes later with a glass of wine. After telling the elf maiden if she needed anything to just ask, the hobbit left her to be. Her gray eyes scanned the inn, she saw someone that looked familiar, but turned away. Sipping at her wine, she sat there waiting for something to happen.
Mordariél raised an eyebrow o the new visitor. Ok, so she wasn't the biggest woman around, still she was bigger than the periannath. Ohw well, it seemed that travel and the lack of sleep had made her too drowzy to notice that she was being served by one of the Eldar. She went back to the table and found that Menelien was still sleeping. She had done so yesterday, trying to afford dishwashing. What she didn't knew was that the guests don't have to wash dishes. Mordariel nudged the girl and she woke up.
"Hanon le, I have been sleeping for a long time."
"Indeed you have Menelien. If it would be possible at this early hour of your awakening, could you lift yourself from the table so I can clean it?"
Menelien did as requested and Mordariël quickly wiped the table clean. Helka was still with the others and Bordarigorn was in the back with Qynne once more. The two seemed to be talking more lightly now that Qynne's big secret was out.
The sun began to heaten up and the streams of light trough the window became brighter and warmer. The pieces of dust dwirling in it were send of in every direction and as they reached the border of the sunlight, they vanished into thin air. It was at this time that Anuion saw the new visitor in a corner all by herslef, sipping on whine, listening to the sounds around her. He stepped up and walked over.
"Hail, we might seem like a tight company, but there is always room for more. Would you like to join us ehm..."
Anuion stopped dead, he didn't even knew the girl's name.

Aranel came downstairs and looked around rather blurrily; she hadn't gotten much rest last night. Quite a few people were already up, and talking about last night's disturbance. Aranel dropped into a chair at an empty table and yawned.
There was a new face at the Inn, she noticed. An elf woman was sitting at another table, looking around the Inn. Anuion was already talking to the woman.
Aranel looked around. Where was everyone else? Surely they weren't all still asleep...

Menelien walked over to Aranel, giving her a sleepy hello, then shook her head, and walked past, passing everybody in the Inn, reaching the door. She waved back to somebody asking her where she had gone, and then went outside... she needed to be outside. Taking out her bag, she pulled out a hammock, and, setting it into the nearby grove of trees, sat down. Then she jumped up, cursing her own terrible memory, and dug in the bag again, throwing to the ground another hammock, identical to her own, in case anybody wanted to come join her (for she would not be bothered with taking it out herself, later), finding a book at the bottom. She sat back down with it, comfortable in the breeze, though no longer sleepy.
If you took all the little feelings in your heart And took all those little feelings apart Oh well now What's the point in doing all of that?

Aranel half-wanted to follow Menelien outside, if only for the change of scenery. There was nothing going on here! Everyone was either still asleep or sitting hunched over a table and wishing they were asleep.
"Never mind," she thought. Nothing interesting will happen either way."
Then she heard the sound of hoofs appoaching the Inn...
"Ah, the long expected supplies. Menelien, get your butt in here, we need all the help we can get." Mordariel shouted outside.
"What is it?" Qynne asked
"We are going to throw a party to celebrate the Inn's opening. Everyone is invited. It is going to last for three days. Oh the horror, I can't take all the presure of this organising." Helka said desperate.
"Don't worry Helkahothion, we are here and will aid you with overseeing the party. We will stand at the door and check the invitations if you would like that. You know, guards of the like."
Anuion who was talking to the newcomer turned around and looked at Bordarigorn who was sitting next to Qynne.
"Next time you make an offer, please consult it with me smart-mouth." Anuion said.
"I can remember days were you never bothered to do that Anuion." Came the reply.
The carts came to a halt in front of the Inn and Helkahothon and Mordariel went outside to welcome them. Mordariel sighned the receiveing papers and the two started unloading. Anuion and Bordarigorn assisted and Menelien and Aranel helped loading the goods into the kitchen. After two days, all the stuff was finaly stocked and the shet next to the Inn was almost going to crack. In the field behind the Inn, they were setting up great tables and tents to cover from the rain. A great sterio installation was placed in the back and the discolights were hanged all over the place. A great hardboard dancefloor was made and a limbo pole was hung in the middle. After three weeks of hard labour, the party field was finaly set up and the workers looked with a lot of pleasure to their work.
"Ok everyone, all we need to do now is spread the word and get ready for everything. The guests will enter trough the front door and can enter the party trough the back door. Anuion, you take the front door, Bordarigorn, you take the back. I have hired a dwarf from Bree do walk around the room and keep an eye on things. His name is Anuionin. Anuion and Bordarigorn already know him. He is an elven friend so no worries. Well, I'm going to spread the word. See you later everyone." Helka took his traveling cloak and went to Imladris.
