5. Mulan & Shang

Mulan smiled as she watched her boyfriend Shang and their friend Ling set up the last of the tables, finally able to get through to process without frustrated muttering or confused glances over the instructions. They had rented out a portion of the town's park and set up dozens of tables under the pavilion for the cultural acceptance festival that Mulan and Belle had planned with the help of town council. The vendors had started to arrive, and Mulan's smile grew as she watched her grandmother greeted them all with the limited English she knew, bringing smiles to the vendors' faces. Once all the tables had been set up, Belle and her husband Adam arrived, bringing tablecloths and baked goods.

"Thank you," Belle smiled as Mulan took a few of the containers out of her hands, allowing her to place them on the table more easily. "Some of these are from Pocahontas, she said she would come by once she picked her brothers up from school."

"I'll set up her table for her so that she's not in a rush when she gets here," Mulan suggested, placing her own set of containers on a different table. "Do you think a lot of people will show up?"

"Let's hope so," Belle replied, beginning to arrange her table. "I brought some books on cultural diversity."

The women continued their chat as they helped their friends and partners, set up for the event. Eventually, the group began to grow hungry and Shang and Adam volunteered to go out to get lunch for the group.

"I was wondering if you could give me some advice," Belle asked as the pair adjusted the items on their tables for the hundredth time. 

"Aren't you known for giving advice?" Mulan laughed good-naturedly before continuing. "I'll do my best."

Belle told Mulan what had happened that morning, doing her best to explain the situation without giving away the names of those who had trusted her. "Do you think I did the right thing?"

"I can't say for sure," Mulan replied, after taking a moment to think. "As long as everyone is on the same page, I can't see what's wrong with that relationship."

"That's what I thought too," Belle agreed with a relieved sigh. "I was just worried that I wasn't thinking straight."

"Hi! I'm sorry couldn't come sooner," Pocahontas called, as she approached them from the other side of the pavilion, with her younger brothers in tow. "Kenai brought one of our kayaks with him so we could teach anyone who wanted to learn."

The older of the two boys was lagging slightly behind the others, carrying a small boat over his shoulder and laughing at his younger brother as he stumbled over the paddles he was carrying.

"I'm gonna help," The youngest brother, Koda, added as he stuck his tongue out at his brother in retaliation. "It's gonna be awesome!"

"Thank you for setting up for me," Pocahontas told them as she began to set some of the things she had brought with her on the table her friends had set up for her. "How have things been? Has there been a good turnout?"

"It's been great, we couldn't ask for better weather. We haven't seen too many people, though there should be more soon, now that school is out for the day and all, " Belle told her. "How have you been?"

"Great, I've made a few new herbal remedies," She smiled, partially from Belle's kindness, and partially from the silliness of her brothers' playfighting. "How about you?"

"I was finally able to open that diversity section in the library," She informed them, watching Koda fiddle with what looked to be a bundle of string and sticks, occasionally disturbed by his older brother ruffling his hair or giving him a joking shove. "What are you making?" 

"A Willow stick doll," He told her, holding it up for her to see. Upon this closer inspection, she could now see that it did look almost like a human figure. "I was gonna give it to my friend for her birthday."

"That's very sweet of you Koda," Mulan smiled, her heart warmed by Koda's adorable act of kindness. "I'm sure she'll love it."
