Unlike the others, Chrono wasn't even present during the announcement, but still managed to arrive shortly after it. Shame was the only word to describe his tardiness at the moment, though a note nearby revealed where everyone was headed - probably from some well-organised member who held attendance for the guild aside from the Guild Master. The Guild Master always seemed occupied anyway, so if he wasn't there to hear him make one speech, Chrono assumed he had missed out on meeting the guy for the second time. He read through the note which intrigued him slightly. So everyone was headed to a beach, huh? How convenient for someone of Chrono's capabilities. Beaches reminded him slightly of his homeland, Desierto, though compared to Desierto, a beach was a thumbnail.
Nevertheless, the male read a second sheet, allowing him to find exactly which beach he was supposed to head to, and hopefully get their in time to avoid exposing his tardiness. Just like he did for other occasions in the past, the lad ordered some transportation to Cedar, where everyone had gone. These people always required money or a good amount of food to bring back home. Luckily, Chrono had some sandwiches from a deli.
After hours of travelling, Chrono knew he would have to confess for the tardiness, but thankful for the time, he was only late by about 15 minutes for the event. Like always, he still wore his gourd, and all other attire he would bring elsewhere, albeit he still brought an additional bag that kept a nice beach towel and swim trunks. Once he was there, Chrono headed to a private area to change. This had probably been the first time in months since the guy decided to set his attire elsewhere (though highly secured as demanded to staff except for the gourd), and wear something else. He had to admit, his physique had improved a lot from the exercise jobs gave, and the training required to surpass threats during those times. He knew the Guild Master would be here, and most likely the entire guild while he was out thinking to himself - a pleasant set of thoughts to keep in mind, actually.
"Lightning at a beach?" Chrono questioned as soon as he got close to a settlement, but luckily out of its radius on the way. The weather was delightful; sunny and hot, so there would be no reason for lightning here. Of course, there was the reason: one of the two Chrono had met during his debut to the debut. "Long time no see, Wolfe." Chrono greeted. His introduction here was identical to his appearance at the guild hall just before he became more bright due to others' happiness. He wanted to be more like himself these days and less like the self impacted by the feeling of selflessly and success. You see, Chrono was just that type of guy who decided never to change for anyone or anything; something he hoped others would tolerate, at least.
"There are some unfamiliar ladies here, my friend. Don't tell me they belong to El..." Chrono added, "I remember that fellow being a piece of work, especially with his alternative personality. He's full of surprises, y'know?" He supposed it was time to limit his talking, and just get to the events in store for him. People were already jumping into the water, but Chrono desired to meet everyone just getting here first. Little did he know, the Guild Master was most likely nearby.
"Swim trunks...Didn't think I'd dress like this anytime soon."
NOTE: I made some unrealistic calls in this post, but this is Fairy Tail, right? Normally, beach staff would never be so secure with one's apparel, but Chrono treasures his clothing, and especially his gourd, so things had to be done to avoid drastic measures.
