"Technically the party happens after the weddin' but whatever. I will concede this argument and act "proper"."
Sol gestures towards the door.
Sol: After you~
Lucius folds his arms at Sarah.
Lucius: Bishop said the same thing. What do you people have against the scientific method?

-Sarah looks Lucius dead in the eyes-
Sarah: Because I doubt Yveltal's giving you a third chance.
Noelle: I don't even know how you can eat that much, sweetheart.
I see they redecorated, back when I was a kid it was this conveyor belt, and later they outright copied the Saffron Gym.
Uxie: -Appears out of the ring- <Tagg and company, it's been a while since you've been in my presence. I'm aware you have questions for me.>
Quite a few to be honest, this might take a while.
Psyche pouts. ~What are you talking about, that's me skipping half a day's meals! D:~
Lucius looks distinctly abashed, and his gaze drops to the floor.
Lucius: ...Yeah, you're right. I'm not exactly in a hurry to find out exactly how generous she is, either... not after last time.
A thought passes his mind and a faint smile comes onto his face.
Lucius: Straw gets away with it, though.

-Sarah, on the other hand, doesn't manage any sort of smile.-
Sarah: ...I'd probably find that funny if I hadn't already seen Yveltal make death threats toward him.

Lucius's smile slips.
Lucius: Oh... yeah, I can see how that would make poking fun at it kind of an asshole thing to do. I should probably stop being an insensitive jerk now.
Several moments of silence follow.
Lucius: ...Huh. Funny how I run out of stuff to say when I stop doing that.

Psyche raises an eyebrow at Lucius. ~You act like this is surprising news.~
Sarah: Er... yeah. Uh.
-She trails off awkwardly.-
Lucius shoots a glare at Psyche.
Lucius: Oh, don't you start throwing stones from that glass house.
He turns back to Sarah.
Lucius: ...Y'know, we haven't even sat down yet. Maybe we ought to fix that. Sitting in awkward silence is probably a big improvement over standing in awkward silence.
Noelle: Um... did something happen between you three?
Psyche shrugs. ~The fruitcake in the tacky clothes is my cousin.~
Sarah: Right, right, yeah, sitting is a good idea.
-She takes a seat, sweatdropping at the incoming Cain drama, and looks at the menu-
Sarah: ...Geez, I guessed right about high prices being something to worry about.

Cowboy is perusin' the menu as well.
"So, does Psyche have any recommendations?"
Lucius looks back over at Psyche as he sits down.
Lucius: At least I didn't turn up in cosplay.
He shrugs at Sarah whilst perusing the menu.
Lucius: Yeah, but we're not the ones footing the bill. Turns out there is such a thing as a free lunch after all.
-Ren is enjoying listening to the various conversations around him as he orders for himself, his mon, and Lucinda and Lumen while Doug, Sara, and Mendel all order for them selves and their Mon.-
-Ren waves to Psyche, Nolle, Pent, and Des. And gives a pleasant expression to Lucius and Sarah.-
-Ren nods to Gogie and Sticy Lips.-
Ren: -standing up, to the assembled guests- Thnk you all for coming to this get together. My parents will be her later, but they've asked me to inform you to enjoy yourselves. They are footing the bill for this evening so order what you like.
-Ren gives a brief wink a Psyche.-
Again, thank you all for coming and being good associates, comrades, and friends.
-sitting back down- Just remember, no underage drinking.
-Kitsune licks Ren's ears after he sits back down.-
Kitsune: <Nice speech.> -nuzzles Ren's cheek- <Happy Birthday, Sweetie.>

"Excuse me for a moment."
The cowboy approaches the birthday boy.
"Well now, you two are lookin' a whole lot better since the last time I saw ya."
Sarah: Oh, good, that's covered. Now I don't have to worry about whether you still have your old bank account, at least for now.
-She smiles and waves at Ren-
Ren: -with a expression somewhere between a smirk and a grimace- I find it's bad for one's disposition and health to be targeted by a megalomaniacal evil team leader obsessed with revenge. This kind of situtation MUCH more enjoyable.
Rio: <Amen to that.>
-Mendel is talking to Lucinda and Lumen, but those three can be interrupted.-
-Doug and Sara are talking as well and equally approachable.-

"Amen indeed. Welp, here's your present."
He hands him a wrapped object. A wrapped object in the shape of a cane.
"Go ahead, open it now."
From Jason Maxwell
Judging by a venue I saw today...and the fact that it seems like stuff is happening there...and it reminds me of last year in Almia. I'm taking a look at my calendar and remembering today's yer birthday, Ren! Sadly, I didn't have time to get ya a present and seeing as the party's in swing, I'll bow back and not intrude. Consider yourself with an IOU from me though! Happy Birthday, Ren!
-Maria has surprisingly surfed her way here without Lane-
-And Iggy's here with her eggie-
Lane:Nah, I wasn't waiting...just kinda...watching the water.
Lucius looks thoughtful.
Lucius: ...Actually, that's a good question. Considering that I'm legally dead, and that most of the money in that account came from my father, who wasn't exactly what you'd call a scrupulous businessman... I'd be quite surprised if it hasn't been seized by now. Or frozen, at the very least. Ah well, it's not like money ever bought me anything other than trouble.
He smiles at Ren.
Lucius: I'd raise a glass to our host, if I had a drink.
