    Markus gave out a large yawn. The train ride had been exhausting, even though he had slept through most of it. The sun had just started to set, and dusk has taken over by the time he arrived. Looking around Markus could see a large expanse of foliage and trees. The East Forest went in every direction around him, and it felt ancient and magical.

    Any other day Markus would be tempted to find a nice large tree and take a nap, in fact when all this is over he might just do that anyways. However, he was here for a reason. Markus was meeting the… interesting, wizard Aven Alveron. The two had a checkered history, an interesting event in the desert, some ‘fun’ conversation, and two weeks later Markus found himself now visiting Magnolia, which he knew to be west of him.

    A lot has changed for Markus in that time, after their conversation and agreement he had handled one more job before finding himself here. Markus was starting to question if there was some merit to Avens words, maybe there was some benefit to guild life, their time in the desert had certainly proven to Markus that Aven was capable. Still being unsure Markus decided this would be his deciding factor, this battle the two of them would participate in would determine his choice. Would he join the guild, give up his homeless traveler lifestyle, and set down roots? Markus was frightened by the idea, but something was drawing him, a drive to get stronger and he knew Fairy Tail had some of the strongest Wizards around.

    After a small walk, and a few minutes Markus found himself in the clearing that Aven had spoken of. The spot was perfect, there was no innocents around who could get hurt, and it would allow the two the freedom to give it all they got. For a second Markus, always weary, thought about the possibility he was being fooled, walking into a trap or ambush. However, the time the two had spent together had taught Markus one thing for sure, Aven was a man of honor, a gentleman, a rare person in the world today, as far as Markus was concerned. As such, he gave up and dropped his fears knowing them to be unfounded and stepped into the clearing, waiting.

    It was a clear night, the moon and stars shining bright in the sky, casting only the dimmest of shadows. Aven twirled his cane absently in the middle of the clearing he'd specified to Markus, a habit of his. He'd practiced so much when he was little, that the object had become a sort of extension of his left arm, a useful trait in battle: and battle was precisely what he'd arrived to do. An intriguing fellow, Markus Eldridge was, though from a glance one might assume him the average wanderer or mercenary. There was a quality in his aura that spoke of untapped potential, the kind of sense that drew unique individuals together. He supposed that was half the cause of their meeting in the desert, though personally, Aven would argue day and night against the idea of fate. Coincidence and consequence, that was what he believed, a function of free will that he'd not yet found a logical counter to.

    Darkness magic... he hadn't the correct amount of time to study Markus' technique, only a few snippets of data being gathered in their time at the tomb. In all honestly, he'd half a mind to incorporate some element of Darkness magic into a Circle for his own use, but to do that, he'd need quite a bit more data, and since Markus' spells didn't naturally form visible matrices, he couldn't just read how the spell worked. Annoying, but there was a remedy: prolonged exposure. After all, the best way to learn is first hand, they say.

    Markus arrived shortly after Aven, to his delight. There was a hint of uncertainly in Aven about whether he'd actually come, seeing as he was the wandering type. As the doubt was dispelled from his mind, he planted his cane in front of him with a grin. "Pleasure to see you again, Markus. I take it, then, you accept my challenge?" Aven had fought a few wizards in his time at Fairy Tail, but never in a duel. The chaos of the battlefield, the element of surprise, guerilla tactics, all of these things were nearly moot in the kind of scuffle they'd planned. It would come down to skill, talent, strategy, and of course, the aces up both of their sleeves. Excitement welled up in his chest, as he prepared to prove the strength of Fairy Tail.

    As he entered the clearing Markus's face took on its usual calculated exterior, and he gave Aven a signature smirk. "Good to see you as well Aven. No bow this time?"

    Markus as always considered his options, he knew entering a fight blind would only hurt him, but too much hesitation and he could also loose. He started to circle, walking around with the forest on his left, and Aven his right.

    He knew a little of Avens Magic, and assumed it would be best to attack first. Rushing forward Markus tried to close the distance as fast as he could, keeping his eyes on Aven, and more importantly his cane(what those things hurt), he launched a quick kick, and attempted to follow it up with a jab using his left fist.

    As soon as he finished the jab he took as step back still within striking distance and called the darkness to his hands and focused on his magical aura. Dark energy circled around his right arm as it formed into black void like thorns and vines trailing to the ground at his feet, the ends of which stayed wrapped around his hand biting into his flesh.

    Aven shook his head lightly as Markus circled around, trying to get a better angle of approach. Smart choice, attacking from the right, since he wielded his cane with his left. "I'm not daft enough to take my eyes off an opponent, now am I?" Markus was making a headlong charge, another smart move. Circle Magic, unfortunately, fares poorly in close combat, at least in pertinence to many other magics. That was where his cane came in.

    Before Aven could strike, however, he hesitated, noticing Markus's eyes, focused directly on his weapon. Shit, he's expecting me to use the cane! The moment's hesitation was too great, and while he successfully nudged aside the kick with a swipe of his cane, he was too far off balance, and the jab struck him in the ribs. He danced backward, a slight ache where contact had been made, just as Markus summoned his magic, thorny vines composed of darkness. Likely to enhance his strikes and give him range over the cane... in response, a light blue magic circle appeared in front of Aven, spinning in place, while a grey circle spawned beside it and promptly shattered, causing the light blue circle to pulsate. Aven rocketed his body backward as the circle activated, a light, icy wind blowing directly at Markus.

    Markus felt the crack as his fist made contact, however his excitement was short lived. Markus had stuck in too close, and with a quick flourish Aven had surprised him. Markus felt a cold chill up his spine as the wind hit him... maybe the attack misfired?

    As Markus took a step to Avens right Hela decided to make her attack. Markus's shadow seemed to grow and move on its own, when suddenly Hela burst forth, her black fur standing on end and the shadows clinging to her. She rocketed to Avens left and attempted to bite at his flank

    Markus was quick to follow up, though the chill seemed to take him he continued his attack in unison with Hela. With a flourish Markus running strait at Aven sent the first whip forward rocketing towards Aven at high speed, he could feel the thorns bite into his hand which started to bleed. Markus was hoping more then anything that between the two attacks Markus could get close.

    Whether or not the attack hit Markus closed the distance between the two, he could feel the darkness once more focusing into his left hand and felt a vain pop as some of his life went into the spell. As soon as Markus was in range he pushed his hand forward, all he needed was a touch to complete the dark binding, and he was certain to follow Aven until it happened, Hela once more attacked the man in an attempt to distract him more then anything.

    The Frostbite circle hit?! Son of a... I thought for sure he'd dodge. Now, there was a serious problem: that spell had been simply to create distance and distract Markus so that he could establish an advantage, he hadn't wanted it to land. It was a very powerful spell, one that could actually freeze the average civilian to the point of death. He'd like to believe that Markus was more resilient than that, but could he really take the chance? Aven was trying to recruit Markus, not permanently debilitate him!

    Aven's thoughts were shattered, as Markus's shadow leapt out from behind him, taking the form of a wolf. He'd introduced her at the Tomb, Hela, wasn't it? He spun to the right, striking out at Hela with the orb of the cane as he attempted to dodge, once again to no avail. Her teeth sunk into his side, and he winced. Markus was closing in as well, with the dark whip-like spell. He needed distance, fast, and with Hela holding tight, there was only one way to accomplish it.

    With a flourish of his cane, Aven spawned a purple circle to his left, which promptly disappeared, and him along with it, his body gone in the blink of an eye. He appeared on the opposite edge of the clearing, nearly forty meters behind Markus. He swiped his cane in a line in front of him, as a light green circle appeared on his chest. Markus would suddenly feel the chill on his body dissipate, as though dispelled, as the green circle began to glow brightly.

    Markus blinked, where at one second he was pressing his attack, all of a sudden he was alone. Worried he was quick to glace about him, knowing an attack was coming. He felt the cold chill down his spine.

    Looking about he found Aven just as he cast his next spell, and Markus felt the chill leave his system. After a moment he realized what had happened, Aven was too nice, whatever that spell was supposed to do he stopped. Markus did not know what to think, he knew he certainly wouldn't have done done same. Though he was certain to lock away what he had learned.

    "Well then, that was interesting." Markus said looking at Aven. Again Markus walked closer to Aven, weary for anything that might come. As soon as the two were within 30 meter he stopped and smiled. "You know, I wouldn't have done the same..." He said as he formed the darkness once more into his hand. This time, the effect was instantaneous, as soon as he formed it the darkness exploded outwards and the clearing was engulfed in a pitch black sphere of energy.

    With Aven hopefully blinded to what he was doing Markus and Hela once more continued their assault. Markus ran towards the outer effect of the darkness, still being able to see Aven he attacked from the shadow, his whip striking out once more, before the spell faded.

    As he did this Hela planted herself in the center of the clearing, her snout raised towards the sky as she activated the connection between her an Markus, Markus felt his Mana drain as she started casting on of his spells at will. Above her, inches from her snout a pulsing hole in the universe started to form.

    Aven laughed lightly at the offhanded comment as Markus took a small breather. Aven didn't mind, though he slightly questioned the strategical value of giving an opponent time to strategize. As Markus approached, two plans were quickly formulated. "Perhaps not, but I came here to learn more about your magic and you, not to flaunt my magic." There were two possibilities at the current state of the fight: Markus could rush him once more, or he could try casting from afar. Since he was already within even the shortest spell range, it was likely he was going to charge; that said, it was definitely the smartest move of the two, especially since Aven's spells were strictly faster, and he was under no pressure from either of the combatants.

    With a motion of his hand, however, Markus pulled out what he assumed to be his ace in the hole, a smile spreading across Aven's face at the move as his vision blacked out. Touché, Markus. But... The intent was too obvious. Because he'd moved closer to Aven when casting, it was obvious that there was a small range on the spell, likely a dome, as that was the easiest shape transformation for most magics. Given that range, and his position in the assumed dome, Markus couldn't get more than 60 meters away simply on foot, and by the fact he hadn't dodged Frostbite Circle with any displacement or movement type spells, Aven could easily track a relative range. He almost immediately pointed forward with his cane, and a pure white magic circle appearing alongside a grey one, which shattered. The White circle pulsed with energy, as it then teleported to where Markus had previously been standing, now a trio of three. The darkness was then lit up, as each circle burst forth with eight bolts of white magic energy, fifteen of them homing down on Markus, and nine of them homing in on Hela. As he did so, something struck his straight across the face, surprising him, and knocking him onto his back.

    Markus was within the darkness, preparing when the next assault when Aven seemed to decided this battle was finished. Markus was confused watching the magic circles which Aven controlled flare once more to life and was surprised when not just one, but three of the circles appeared between himself and Hela.

    As the circles broke apart sending white bolts of magic at both Markus and Hela he couldn't help but marvel. Seems he had made the right decision agreeing to test his strength against Aven. As the bolts hit him he swore to himself next time, Aven would not have it so easy.

    As Hela went down from the assault, the chaotic energy she was charging was already released into the world, and as such with no will to direct it the energy exploded outwards from her position swiftly causing an explosion of chaotic energy which effected everything within 45 meters of her position.

    Markus's last thought before he was assaulted with the white hot magic of Avens circles, and the icy cold element of darkness was of how much stronger he needed to become.

    A last resort tactic, double edged sword... Aven applauded Markus's foresight, as the blast overtook him, blowing him back into a tree, knocking the wind out of him in the process. As he staggered to his feet, brushing himself off, he saw both Hela and Markus unconscious on the ground. A good thing he'd already primed that healing circle. As he made his way over, the circle slowly reached it's finality, and he duplicated it, one on each of them, and the restorative magic energies flowed into their bodies, reversing the wounds and bruises on their forms (+120 to both). They didn't wake up immediately, however: it seemed they'd taken much more damage than he'd thought, the blast from that spell also affecting the two of them, but he plenty of time, his eyes fixed on their surroundings for any possible dangers. It was a well fought match, the least he could do was return Markus and Hela back to their former states, placing the next healing circle on Markus, empowering it, and once it had fully matured, copied another onto each of them (+240 to Markus, +120 to Hela.)

    As they awoke, Aven was lounging with his back against a nearby tree. "Good morning, you two. Did you have a good rest?"He chuckled at his little joke, before continuing. "Kidding, kidding: it was a well fought match, I applaud you Markus. I'd like to thank you, as well, I think I understand your magic a bit better now; as thanks, I'd like to treat you to dinner in Magnolia, what do you say? Knowledge is invaluable to me, I'd very much appreciate you allowing me to repay the favor."

    Marked blinked a few times. His head hurt, as did his shoulders, and his back… For a second he couldn’t remember what happened. Then, all of a sudden it all flooded back into him. He had lost fights before, but never like that. It was a new experience, and Markus Hated it.

    Upon hearing Avens voice he looked over, Hela had just come too it seemed. Despite the damage he should have received from that battle he only felt sore. Aven must have healed him.

    Getting up he looked directly at the well dressed, and well meaning wizard. “Ha, that was a slaughter.. I learned a lot as well.” Markus was not one to thank a person, he really didn’t know how, so it came out a barely audible mumble.

    He thought of Avens offer, he used most of the money from his last job getting here, and food did sound good. He guesses he could accept. “Sure, however…” He looked at Avens Eyes. “I would much prefer a promise, next time. No holding back. And, believe me when I say I don’t plan to make it as easy.” Markus said adapting back to his calculated exterior.

    He watched the other man for a couple seconds, thinking of what he learned when he felt something against his hand. Hela had pushed up against him, and looked over at Aven with her oddly intelligent eyes. They said it all, she was just as ready for their match. With a final look at both of them, she stepped back into Markus’s shadow, no longer on this plane she was undetectable one more.

    “Lead the way” Markus said, still thinking on what he had learned.

    Aven's gentle smile became a grin, almost unconsciously, at Markus's response. It seemed Aven hadn't been the only one analyzing his opponent's magic, Markus obviously having gleaned enough to surmise exactly how the Frostbite circle was neutralized. He'd admit, if he faced a stronger opponent, and they pulled their punches in such an obvious way, even Aven himself would be disenfranchised about the fight. The question was, what should he say in response? His typical response, which would obviously be that he was worried about Markus's safety, sounded patronizing and almost rude as he played it over in his head. Such a comment would certainly be demeaning and demoralizing to an up and coming wizard, like Aven himself, so instead, he opted for a more... motivating response.

    Aven's grin widened. "To be frank with you, Markus, there's a degree of fault for both of us in that scenario," He stood, brushing the dirt off the back of his suit, "I assumed you could avoid the attack, and you were unable to. You see, out of all the different magics I've studied, all the strategies and tactics that they employ, there is only one counter to every given situation: that is, of course, to simply not hit." Aven twirled his cane, then brought it down into the ground before him. "I am a man of my word, Markus, and thus, you can surely trust this promise: I will not go easy on you in our next bout... provided you've learned how to dodge." With that, he turned, picking up his cane and motioning for him to follow, leisurely strolling toward Magnolia. "Now, to eat! Healing comes at a price, you know, a portion of that energy stemmed from your own body's latent energy, you'll need to stock up if you want to get anything done the next few days!

    Markus only nodded. He understood what Aven meant and, though he wouldn't admit it to the other Wizard it was a calculated decision. He assumed the attack would hurt, but he would stay within range. However, he admits that even his plan at that time would have failed with Avens ability to teleport. He would never say that to Aven however. He definitely needed to get stronger, had he more options things might have turned out differently, or so he hopped

    He thought of his response as he followed Aven. "True, but I did learn a lot about my opponent. Besides, as it turns out the risk was worth it... After all, you did reverse it." He had only meant that next time they fought, he would make sure he was strong enough that there was no need to hold back. He did not care one way or the other what Aven decided to do in battle, especially if it gave him the advantage, though he knew no way to voice it.

    Markus knew Magnolia was a rather large city, though he had never spent more then a few days within its limits, and even then it had been a while. "By the way... I will take you up on your offer. I will join the guild."

    Magnolia always had a pleasant feel to it, the citizens welcoming and friendly, not to mention the current season caught the end of the sakura's blooming, so the soothing scent wafted among the breeze constantly. Aven's head turned in delight as they walked, a bit surprised. "Really, now? Well, that's wonderful to hear, I'm sure you'll get in without any issues!" He stopped near the middle of the shopping district, in front of a place called, 'Ya-ya's Eatery'. The scent of sakura was scarce here, completely overpowered by the aroma of cooked meats. Taking a deep breath, Aven turned to face Markus. "In that case, this can be a sort of premature welcome dinner, my treat. Best chicken place I've ever found."

    The city was like any other. He knew the people were nice enough, most people were in public. However, just like any other city he was certain it held its secrets, and he knew every person had one. He looked around, watching the people.

    It was late, and he was surprised so many people were out and about. He was unsure what to do about Aven enthusiasm. So he just nodded that he heard, the guild was a means to an ends, and he knew more then anything else it would allow him to get stronger.

    When they stopped he saw the sign on the door, and he smelt cooking meat. He was hungry, the battle had drained a lot of his magical energy. Markus grinned hearing Aven offer the dinner, and decided not to mention he had already offered. He enjoyed chicken, and beef, really any meat. Living on the streets most of the time, he was not picky.

    "So, tell me about the guild... its members?", its secrets, though he left that unsaid. Markus asked trying to make small talk.
