Sorano frowned down at the wooden pattern upon the railing as she perched there, mug of tea dangling in one hand as she rests her eyes after another long day of paperwork. In legends and stories, all they ever told of was the might of a guild master, how they would slay foe after foe and lead their guilds to victory. They kinda left out all the stuff about paperwork for just about every little action that was required to be taken. At this rate, the girl was probably gonna lose her eyesight or something. She rubbed tiredly behind her glasses, before taking the heavy rims of and hanging it around her neck on a near-invisible chain that held it up by a spider’s thread. “How does anyone have any energy at all…” Hoshi’s words were uttered in exhaustion behind her friend’s head as Sorano looked up wearily. “Once more, I think I may be regretting bringing us here.” The guild was essentially a huge pent-up bowl of hyper energy, and the two were just about the furthest you could get from that. But yet, somehow, they had made themselves a home here, developed a love of the rowdy guild known both famously and infamously as Fairy Tail.
Yawning slightly, Sorano dropped from the railing, feeling the wind from the exceed’s wings as Hoshi carried her down towards the entrance. She felt like going outside, maybe experiencing the feel of dirt on her soles for awhile before the paperwork called her back. She’d been working on building something like a secondary HQ in Tetsukazu, where they could retreat if needed. After Fairy Tail’s exile a while ago, the entire guild had learned important lessons. But for now? All she wanted was to go outside.
And, well, just her luck. As Hoshi set her down in front of the giant worn-out doors (seriously they had only just replaced it?), another figure – this one with an unfamiliar aura stepped inside. Her eyes scanned across the turquoise-haired figure’s face, taking in his appearance. Definitely had been travelling. It was such a common occasion these days that she barely pause before extending a slender hand. “Pleasure to meet you, traveler. Sorano Granon, current Guild Master of Fairy Tail at your service.” It reminded her of the days Heero had headed over the guild, how new faces were constantly streaming through the door. Guild life was booming, and she could feel that they may enter yet another relatively golden age.
