Leila Vergious • Golden Phoenix • D Rank
It was that time once again. For the very first time in her new life after everything happened, Leila would return to the borders of Joya and pray at her father's grave. She was already on the horse and very close to the point where her own feet would have to carry her. The journey to this place was always a long one without the use of transportation magic, offering plenty of room for one to think. On the ship from Fiore to Bosco and then through Stella into the mountains of the jungle covered land of Joya. The girl often visited her father's grave ever since she buried him, but this time was different from the others. Other than the fact she was reborn and thus managed to avoid death, a reunion with this family of hers, she was also weaker than last time. In fact, her level of power was very similar to the time when she made the trip for the very first time. Back then, she received a letter from her father that explained many things surrounding her birth and origin. Well, even the Nameless Golem did not know the girl her was with was a fragment of a goddess in another world. She had to find that out for herself. And she did on her long journey that eventually ended in self-sacrifice for another person. She still clearly remembered it however, the day she came to that shack in mountains and saw her father's motionless body for the very first time. It was such a shock, she could not stop crying until there was no more liquid her eyes could produce.
But something like that... was a necessary portion of one's life. She would have to go through it eventually and the event managed to strengthen her for the adventure that was waiting for her. It was simply strange, returning to that place after so long and feeling like this. All of these different thoughts were surrounding the Eden's mage mind and being. She was no longer the goddess that she was supposed to be. Nor was she the hero of Fiore anymore with how her powers weakened. She was nothing more than just a simple girl that wished to wander on the roads of unknown again. And her only desire was to be with her father again. Even if he was not biologically related to her... hell, he wasn't even human. Machias, a sentient machines. That was what he was. And yet, he took the girl beneath his protective wings, on his adventure through the world. And he thought her how to survive and enjoy her life. Many would not expect something like that from seemingly emotionless machine. But the Golem was far from that. He didn't even have a name, yet he was everything to the silver haired girl that he took along with him, because he knew that it was wrong to just leave her alone in the wilderness where she would never survive. And just like that, her journey started. Her life started. And now, she could only sigh as she remembered all of it, the horse finally stopping as the terrain got even steeper than before. This was it. The small rocky path leading into the mountains and eventually ending by a small, broken down cottage. The only place her father ever called "home".
