Beach City was a tourist trap, especially in the summertime. People up-and-down the East Coast would flock to Delmarva in droves, cozying up to different seaside towns for a classic destination-vacation. After all, along the boardwalk, it was like a pure slice of americana; fresh cut french fries, a buzzing arcade, cheesy t-shirts and souvenirs galore. It was a perfect picture of warm breezes, swishing tides, crying gulls, and chattering, happy families. On this day in particular, one such family was placing an order at Cone'N'Son , just past the arcade, and in Pearl's opinion, they were taking forever. She had long since drowned out the parental figures bickering over size and toppings for their - what, six children?
It was just a normal evening in Beach City. Connie was at her home, playing a game of chess with her mother. Lars and Sadie are working at the Big Donut. Mostly Sadie. The Funland and Arcade were filled with tourists. Yep, just a normal day. With our main characters, Garnet went on a mission with Steven, stating that he needs more experience on the field before he does anything solo. And that he wanted to spend the day with her. Peridot and Lapis were at the barn, wrestling. And no, not that type of wrestling.
