The next day, the young boy was walking down the sidewalk with a small brown bag held tight in his hands. He was very nice and polite. "E-excuse me..." is what he said every time he passed someone. He kept his head down and started speeding up a little as if he were in a hurry to get somewhere which he was. It appeared that he was making his way towards Fairy Tail with a shy but determined look on his face. Before he could go any further, the boy noticed his bully with some friends were walking down the sidewalk approaching him. They don't appear to have noticed him though since they were too busy rough housing but I would be a matter of time till they bump into each other. The boy panicked and darted down a nearby alley. Just his luck, the bully and his friends stopped at the entrance to the alley where they continued to rough house. The boy hid behind the dumpster peeking out a little. His hands were shivering so hard from fear that it made what ever was in that bag to bounce around and cause a little bit of noise. One of the bullies friends quickly looked down the alley before turning his attention back. Luckily the boy hid in time. The boy turned around and noticed that there was a hole on the bottom of the fence. It was small but it was enough for him to sneak under.
He managed to get through the hole. He sighed in relief that he was able to flee from his tormentor. But now he has no clue where exactly he is. He knows he is still in Magnolia, but never has seen this part. It appears to be another park with flowers of different colors blooming on the grass, a playground for the kids to play in, and benches for others to rest on. The boy leaned up against one of the benches and looked around the place with a soft and peaceful smile on his face. ""Oi, this place looks nice dosent it?" The boy was startled by the sudden question. He turned to see someone sitting on the bench. It was the mage from the independent guild, Laughing Coffin. He appeared to be wearing a black tanktop with blue skinny jeans while barefoot instead of his usual clothing. The boy shyly nodded and said ""Y-yea" Shadow continued to look out at the park while resting on the bench as the young boy watched Shadow he noticed what appears to be a guild tattoo on his left shoulder. The boy quickly got up and stood in front of Shadow which got his attention. "Ermm...Everything ok kid?" Shadow asked before the kid quickly said. "Please I need your help!" Before he held out the brown bag infront of the mage which caused Shadow to blink and tilt his head.
