Twisting the truth
That was what Gil Vessalius excelled at, whereas Kai lied or only spoke half truths, Gil merely twisted his. That and he was excellent at avoiding the hard to answer questions. "I can summon beasts."
That much was true about Gil, his magic was not a dark natured one that required him to lie about it. He made a small snorting sound at Kai's blatant lie about Fairy Tail. His small snort did not go unnoticed by the parents but Gil was quick to make amends for it, "Fairy Tail is quite the rambunctious guild these days, wasn't there talk about a wanted mage in its ranks?"
Gil raised a golden brow in question, and it was at this that the father went off, heatedly explaining his dislike for the sudden change in alignment that Fairy Tail had undergone.
"And you? Do you come from Fairy Tail as well?"
The idea was an almost laughable one
"Hardly, I'm the guild master of my own guild."
Gil ran a hand through his blonde mane, his pretend girlfriend that sat next to him seemed to light up as well as the others at the table. A guild master, even of a small guild, was still a guild master. Before they could inquire as to what guild in specific Gil distracted them with well practiced ease, like a politician, "It's a rather small, and foreign so it wouldn't me much to you. I have high hopes for it, I wish to make it a great guild one day, greater than the now darkened Fairy Tail... Honestly, such a murderous guild with only foul intentions, it's quite a shame."
Gil sighed, "If only the council or even the capital would do something about it. I hear that Magnolia is quite the large city, the poor citizens must be in such fear. If only I myself had the funding and power, I'd do something about such a thing. Though there has been some talk among the smaller guilds like mine of simply moving elsewhere. Fiore has become such a risky place with these so called legal guilds, they seem more sinister than the supposed dark guilds don't you think?"
Twist the truth, evading the truth, Gil was a master at it, and all the while he was getting closer and closer to what he wanted. While, simultaneously poking fun at Kai for having picked such a guild... Still, the parents were impressed by the two, fooled by the mages acting, and Gil's small seeds had been planted.
It would soon be time to harvest
