"Yeah, it was a cool job!" Ayato explained to the bartender in the Blue Pegasus guild hall. Recently, he had gone to the Mystic Tower with his friend Zack to accomplish the task of destroying a Lacrima that turns ordinary people into sun-worshipping zombies; some even Mages of Sunlight. It was a job well-done with H-Rank assistance, especially by one who also specialized in the art of swordsmanship. The only reason Ayato was speaking about the job was how thrilling the feeling felt to help others, and be the great hero in a mission for once. "It took up a lot of my strength..." Ayato explained, "I used a lot of my magic getting through these enemies, you know? First there were minions of this one leader, then the leader himself along with creatures of sunlight. After that, I battled two other Mages along with their weaker companions. In the end, we ended up rescuing a ton of civilians and a wanted daughter, specifically." The bartender sighed and called Ayato a talkative one. The bartender suggested that Ayato summarize his stories further from now on, though his next action was a surprise.
Momentarily, the bartender gave a note addressed to Zack, but also a request for Ayato to join in. Ayato was not authorized to read the letter as stated in his own letter, but rather find the one who had come across the Celestial Spirit King at some point, and hand the other letter to them. With curiosity, Ayato felt like he should get these two letters examined by Zack, after all. If these people knew about the Celestial Spirit King, there was a chance that these people were Celestial Spirit Mages. Perhaps they saw how Ayato and Zack just completed a job together recently, and were convinced that they would make a good team again for this task, in particular. "Where can I find Zack?" Ayato asked the bartender. He shrugged, and gave Ayato the obvious advice of looking around the guild. Ayato nodded, and scouted through the guild to try and find Zack. He also left a note with the bartender in case Zack passed by. On his days of work, it was hard not to find the bartender whilst entering the guild, anyway. "Zack! Where are you?" Ayato questioned. He needed this other letter read by him to assure the one intended for Ayato was no joke.
