Hera walked through town, sweating her butt off. As she was wearing her normal open belly, rack wrapped up in fighting bandages look with her white booty shorts. Her scarf flowed behind her, as she wiped her brow with it and began to chug a bunch of water out of a bottle. Next to her, an Exceed of deep red color would actually do the same with a bottle of water; flicking her ears cutely after she chugged it.
Pouring it all over her head eventually, her long pink braid and hair would sink down comically as she steamed with heat. After working on a rooftop for several hours, she would shake the hands of the foremen as they began to flirt with her a bit after thanks were given; taking that as her que to leave, the made her way across the landcape of beautiful Magnolia Town. There were flowers everywhere, and while some buildings still looked run down, it was still a big city the size of New York at least. It had been rebuilt by some incredible people, the type that don't give up when they wake up in the morning. She admired these people; everytime she took a walk, they would smile and wave at her. Knowing her for the person she was, rather than the person everyone wanted her to be.
Swinging the bottle of water in her hand as she walked, somewhat happily; her stomach growled as she made a comical "U TURN" toward the guild at the growling sound. Whistling and flipping a bottle into the air, as it landed into the trashcan to her left on the street. She wondered who was around the Guild, it had been so busy these days. With the town being rebuilt, regular humans, visitors from the Magic Council, other nations, other Guilds, you name it. It almost felt like things were back to normal. But no...it felt like Fairy Tail had more...freedom. More acceptance now. "Daydreaming again?"
Rose would ask. Having seen more than most mages, Rose had seen guildmasters of Fiore rise and fall, even Hera's own father. She was literally a walking history book. "Can't you sense those unfamiliar magic presences up ahead?"
Rose would say as they walked along Magnolia's streets. Rose being barely two feet tall was adorable. Hera shook her head yes, as Rose looked surprised. "Yeah, one of em is a scent I'll never forget."
her brow would furrow cutely for a moment as it took on a more serious look. "Kanix...."
Hera stated, Rose looked shocked at the name, and then focused harder on sensing; opening her eyes wide when she realized Hera was right. "W-what? How long have you known?"
Hera made a face and Rose sighed. "What do you think she wants here.....I heard she was killed. If she's still alive then...she's still a member of the Guild...right?"
Rose looked somewhat concerned as Hera would nod firmly. "Yeah, no matter what happened in the past. We don't know what Fairy Tail means to Kanix, and how dear she treasures it in her heart."
Hera stared off toward the building in the distance. Realizing that it was something precious to so many people, but that it was something different to each one. Somewhere they could go for peace? Something that had saved their lives? Somewhere to feel accepted? Somewhere to turn lose and not be judged? Somewhere to study magic and become a great mage? A dojo of friends and family? A kitchen? A bar? So many things, but Fairy Tail was one thing for sure. Important and how important it was to each person showed day by day as this town regrew. Next week the mayor planned on announcing the town officially back into working order. A day Hera couldn't wait for.
As she nodded to Rose, they walked up ahead. Spotting the group of mages as they approached silently. Rose flying next to Hera in the air. "Hey boys."
she said, a half wave and a hand on one hip. Her amber eyes scanned the area somewhat seriously, landing on Kanix; she made eye contact with her. For Hera, she may have looked different but. This was the woman who was pregnant at the same time her Mother was with her. She was like an Aunt to her, and more. Family. That day she'd lost it over the love of her life; or something more sinister. It had damaged their relationship; because a mage of Fairy Tail should never use Magic on the civilians of Magnolia that way. She couldn't believe she'd struck Kanix though. As an image of her flying up into the air and clocking her upon a flying beast replayed in her mind. She knew she'd done the right thing, but she couldn't forgive herself. She loved Kanix deeply, just like she did all of her guildmates. "Auntie Kanix......"
the sixteen year old just looked straight into her eyes, it was a strength that Kanix and Alyia had taught her as a woman; so she didn't break eye contact at first. Until she looked to the side. "I thought you were....a part of the ground again....thought you were......."
she smiled a bit, although it seemed out of place it made sense when she spoke again. "I'm so lucky to be able to tell you that I'm sorry, face to face. I thought I'd never get that chance again....that it was something I had to live with but here you are! So....sorry about that day."
she practically said it casually toward the end of it.
Crossing her arms, being to stubborn to go over and hug her; she would just cross them above her rack and under her scarf. Turning to Ezra she would look him up and down, at first a smile passed over her features. But then when Rose looked at him, something awkward happened. She held her forehead, as she got a vision of someone who looked like Ezra but with a more sinister look on his face; like he was pleased. No...this was Ezra, but something was wrong. Hera caught Rose's expression toward him and then looked to him and shrugged; but Rose wouldn't stop looking at him weirdly, and they usually were great buddies. "So who are you.......a mage as well huh?"
she wondered what kind of convictions he held within him. She'd overheard something he was saying when she was walking up. Like he'd had a close brush with death. But it seemed like he was more serious when he was talking about it earlier, for now he had his arms crossed with his eyes closed and a small smirk that was caused by Ezra's somewhat drunkenness. "Ezra...this is Kanix, she was the Guildmaster of Fairy Tail before Ivy, the one I told you about...she's really...really smart, so please don't try to do anything stupid to her."
she tried to say this under her breath to Ezra and Ezra alone. Although he was seemingly a brute, he was a lot wittier than most gave him credit for. She knew him well, and his hometown even, his roots; and he actually was wise and kind beyond his years; with a funny way of showing it.
- Abilities Used:
Visions - Rose is an extremely psychic sensitive Exceed, remniscent of Carla from the Fairy Tail manga universe. The visions are usually random. But she can attempt to see a possible future by reaching out with her mind through time; due to the fact that thought flows in every direction through time; combined with her psychic abilities. This manifests usually as a flash of light to her, that fades into a scene that usually plays out for about ten seconds. Although the visions can stretch much further if she's receiving a vision about a conversation. Faces are usually blurred out if she does not know the individuals having the conversation; locations are usually not known unless something, someone, or somewhere recognizable to Rose is in the vision.
