Beau and her friends are sitting down at a table when a tiefling from the carnival comes in and sits down. He introduces himself as Molly, and invites them to the show tonight, handing them a flier. Beau says that they were going to go anyway, but having the flier is nice. They get to talking and Molly explains that some of the acts at the performance aren't very traditional, Beau asking if that's why the sick and elderly aren't aloud. The sick she gets, but the elderly not so much, but they just think it's a just in case scenario.
Later, when they arrive at the carnival, Beau sees Molly and calls him over. He comes over and tells them that the first night is always the best, Beau asking for the best seats. Molly says he enjoys the front since if something goes wrong, there's nothing between them and whatever mess happens. Beau is taken aback for a moment, but Molly says that they'll be fine. When the group finds out that they can't have weapons, Beau tries to convince them that she needs her staff since she also uses it as a walking stick. Molly asks to see her walk without it, just for his own joy. Beau asks if he's patronizing her, but Molly's just hoping she'll patronize them, much to everyone's amusement. Beau just asks to keep her staff.
