An expression that radiated pride and excitement danced across Charlotte’s face at the mention of Tiana’s restaurant. “Oh, my goodness!” she exclaimed, practically squealing in her joy. “Of course I’ve been to Tiana’s Place. Tia’s my best friend! I grew up with her!” Lottie paused and scanned her brain. Had Tiana mentioned visitors from Corona before? “Y’know, I think Tia did talk about y’all visiting from Corona once or twice,” she recalled. “It is so amazin’ that she has people comin’ from all over just to come to her restaurant.”
“Well, you’ve been doin’ a lovely job!” Charlotte commented on Corona. It really was a charming kingdom. The scenery was gorgeous, the food was fantastic and the people were very friendly. “I think I’ve been doin’ alright finding my way ‘round here,” she said, smiling widely. “But I’m only stayin’ a couple more days and I wanna make sure I see everythin’! Any ideas?”
Rapunzel’s mood increased by the second. This girl was so uplifting. It was a shame she was only going to stay a few days, Corona could use some cheering up. ”Oh yes, Tiana’s restaurant is worth a trip from anywhere! And her company too, of course. She is such a lovely person, and a good friend.” Rapunzel was so glad to have something in common with her new aquaintance.
Rapunzel thought for a moment about ideas. ”Well, I really love to hang out by the warf. There’s so many interesting people and markets down there, and I like sticking my toes in the water. There are some lovely trails at the foot of these gardens through the woods if you like to ride. And the shopping on High street is great!” She blushed a little. There was really one thing that came to mind when it came to Corona must-sees. ”And you really should meet the most handsome man in Corona.” She glanced at the sky, she had a little time. “Would you like to come in for tea?”
Everything Rapunzel suggested sounded very appealing to Charlotte at the moment, especially the shopping part. Lottie was never one to turn town a good ol’ shopping spree. She decided, however, that she could wait until the end of her trip. Charlotte smirked at the mention of a ‘handsome man’. “Ooh, a handsome man, huh? He doesn’t happen to be a prince, does he?” she joked. “I would most certainly love to have tea with you!”
