"I must admit, I'm not the greatest music expert. Tell me, what's wrong with it?"
"Extra carrots it will be miss.">>459806
The waiter nods, and leaves.
The mayor looks behind him for an instant.
"Vegetables for me, double."
"Of course sir."
Then, he turns back to the table again.
"See that behind me?"
He points at the vista of the city at night behind you.
You can see the whole town from here, this is near the top of the Tower of Light, at least one hundread meters from the ground. If it wasn't such a clear night, clouds would be blocking your view.
The city itself rests still near the water, waves washing up and down near the docks as if the earth itself was breathing through it.
In the stone streets, lanters are lit as to track a web through the city, unlike anything you might have seen before.
And it all leads here, to the Tower.
A main line of light runs from here to the one other dominant building in the city's skyline, a majestic building that would not be out of place between the ivory towers of canterlot itself, a mighty altar to the night itself, beathed in light.
And beyond the city, its walls. So small from up here, so solid from below. So dark and silent.
"This, this is my kind of city.
Building it, that's been my dream. My one aim in life.
And I am almost there."
A languid smile grows on his face.
