The town center was the oldest
and grayest part of the town, though, even there the buildings were still
colorful with the stone buildings being blue-gray, pink-gray and lavender-gray.
In the center of town, marking the absolute center of the town, was a park area
with a fountain in the center, the fountain led down into an underground grotto
which was currently overflowing with people not unlike the fountain above it. “Looks like it’s connected,”
