Between The Lines
A blue light appears before you and greets you with a sing song voice,
"Hey There! You're a guest right? Welcome to The Forum."
The Blue light sparkles over the register button for a moment,
"you know you can find so much more in here if you join us."
She flares brightly once more and then disappears.
