Chapter 1: A Festival for Evergreen It was sometime early in the afternoon, and it was raining — yet the entire city appeared to be in high spirits. Bad weather was nothing new to the citizens of Gothenburgh, and rain had simply become part of the tradition. As such the streets near the city center were flooded with a sea of brightly colored umbrellas and raincoats. The air was filled with the laughter of adults and children alike, as they wandered between the many stalls to take part in everything they had to offer. The scent of freshly roasted almonds and other sweets was wafting through the air, mixing with the fragrance of the countless of flowers used as decor. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, from elderly to young. It was the annual Evergreen Spring Festival at its finest. The festival was an event planned and carried out by the city council, often in collaboration with Carnival; celebrating both the arrival of spring and the local legend of Miss Evergreen, a woman who had single handedly made a stand against a great evil and sealed it away once and for all. It was a time for joy and laughter, a celebration meant to bring everyone together. Monsters and humans alike.
