    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix C-Rank

    Once again. Once again, the young silver-haired maide stood in front of the tall structure, a gate to another world. She went through these so often that she could probably not count the number with her hands alone anymore. However, this time was slightly different. First of all, she was not to enter it alone, she had asked someone specific for help. But they were not quite here yet, and so the girl simply stood, gazing the the green mist which formed the portal into another dimension. The horse that got her here was also standing nearby, tied to a poll to make sure he would still be here when the girl eventually returns. But even the living creatures was not able to capture Leila's attention. For all she could see right now, was that fateful day in the past. She could see herself... and Jiyu Kazehime, her beloved friend, talking with one another. Ah, the wind witch just got her new armor and was showing it off. Such an exciting occasion... they were to enter the world of Kyoka together, and they did. But they never managed to fulfill their objective. The Heaven's Forge lied hidden to them. And the Eden's caretaker was not here on her own, without her friend. She couldn't help it, but feel a bit lonely, despite the fact that support would soon arrive here for her. It was more and more that she was thrown into the past like this. And it bothered her greatly. After all, she mostly lived for the moment, never really looking back all that much. So why was this happening? Was it because she had lost something and wanted it back? No, surely not. After all, she made up with her canine friend and were talking every now and then. But then... what was it?

    "Haah..."

    A simple, yet loud sigh that penetrated the dreadful silence. Even if she had not lost anything, she desired to go back. Those joyful days when she could do anything she wanted. Ah, well... she was still capable of that much. But it felt different. So much was lost and gained, it seemed like a completely different life altogether. And in a sense, it was. After all, she had sacrificed her life and then got resurrected. Perhaps that was the point where everything went wrong... where she lost her powers and the timeline itself became damaged. It was not right. People disappeared and just... it was perhaps her desire to fix it all that drew her here. Maybe, this could have been the first step of many. Clenching her first, her expression suddenly became much darker, but only for a moment. For she heard a familiar voice in her head... voice that was also present here last time.

    "I know. You don't have to worry about me, Yuki. I know we can make this right... if we can't... then we'll create our own, new reality!"

    But she couldn't do so just yet. She knew that this was too much for her alone as she was right now. She still lacked the power she once had. And so, she had to patiently wait for the one who was able to help her so-called sister. If he managed to team up with her, and with what he displayed in the ancient ruins when they met Lexa, even this should be possible to accomplish!

    The demon had been called for help again by his close friend's sister. It had been awhile since he was last asked for help by Leila during her job in the ancient ruins. The girl seemed to take jobs that had an otherworldly feel to them for some reason. He figured that it was because she was not an average person in multiple ways just like her sister. Otherworldly was the easiest way to explain her and her sister but it was not like the Captain of Black Sails was any different with his past. He would not deny being different from others either and would be more likely to embrace his differences from them. After all, it was the sense of freedom that he liked about being who he was and not trying to copy anyone else.

    There was something about this request this time that had him feeling a slight uneasiness. It was a job that required them to travel to another planet using the Wakusei Portals located in Earthland. He had never taken the portals before and never planned to do so unless he needed to because he had no clue about the other worlds on the other side of each portal. He was not the type to rush in blind into things anymore after all he had experienced in Earthland so he was always cautious about new situations, especially when he felt like he had little control over the entire situation to begin with.

    His mind wandered around the idea of what he was going to be bringing himself into during this job during his travel there which he flew on top of his friend and pet, Zinnath for a means of flight there. He did not tell the dragon exactly where they were going or what he was going to be doing because he did not want her to try and join him. He planned to leave her when they were a little over half way to the portals and then fly the rest of the way. He could not risk losing the treasured existence she brought him so he did just as he planned and stopped her while they were in the air. "Okay. Zinny, head back to Divide Island. I will meet you there after this job is over." He used his power over electromagnetism to fly off top of Zinnath while the dragon serpent gave a sad groan to him. "I know, I know but I can't lose you. You know how much you mean to me." He reached out his hand and pet her face with a warm smile on his face while both were suspended in the air. "I'll take you on a job with me when I get back later, okay?" Zinnath's tongue shot out of her mouth multiple times along with some excited squeaks coming from her. "Good.
    I'll see you back on the island, Zin.
    " He then flew away from her and after a few seconds Zinnath obeyed him and started her journey back to Divide Island. He knew she would be fine going by herself like she always was.

    Later, the demon found himself flying over the portals located where he found the girl he had teamed up with some time before. "Leila, we really should try meeting in regular circumstances like where we spar or something. Makes me feel like I'm some sort of lackey for you or something. I am sort of busy now with being the CEO of the West Fiore Trading Company. I am happy to be out of the building though..." He spoke out as he floated down to the ground near her. "So I read the letter you left me but it only said to really meet you here for a job and I assumed we were going in one of these. What are the actual details of this one? Also, how is your magic coming along? You do feel different a bit but I'm hoping you are stronger now so that you can do more than just watch most of the time." He teased her as he referenced the last time they worked together. "It might sound harsh but if we are going into one of these portals I want you to be competent with a magic somehow because I do not know what we will be running into on another planet. I might not be there to help you as much as you needed in the past." He stood a few feet away from her and stared at her with his dual colored eyes. He wore his typical black suit with a white dress shirt underneath. The clothing was looser because of his preference of how it should feel for him to be able to maneuver in it all.

    It took Leila a good moment before even reacting to the sudden words of a purple-haired male that suddenly appeared behind her. Though in the end, her simple turn of a body and head to face him was perhaps little lackluster or outright disappointing. Though her eyes remained somewhat dimmed as she scanned him from toe to head, almost as if she did not believe that he was actually there, that he did indeed show up as he was supposed to. Only about a minute or so later she finally snapped out of the strange shock.

    "I'm afraid that I don't just duel other mages, especially those with power far above my own. My lifestyle also doesn't leave all that much room for normal activities. Contracts take priority."

    When she looked back at it all, she could easily see that these words were, in fact, the truth. She did so little in terms of socializing or just relaxing, it was perhaps shameful to a certain degree. The work of a mage... it was her life. Her relaxation and her method of finding new people to interact with. And outside of that, she was nothing more than a simple traveler who wanted to see the world and beauty it was hiding from the many curious gazes. Perhaps she lacked personality? Was she nothing more than a hard-working doll in the eyes of others? She wasn't quite confident enough to ask them directly, so she merely sighed and clenched her fists for a moment.

    "There are... no details. This is actually not an official contract, thus no employer. We very well might not get paid in any way either. I won't blame you if that made you lose your interest in accompanying me and I won't fault you at all if you decide to leave. All I can say is that this is important to me from personal reasons. There will be many enemies and we will have to fight through them in order to obtain certain items."

    She would turn her back toward the boy as she once again faced the greenly lit portal. It was such a majestic structure, almost difficult to look at. And behind it, the magical world of Kyoaka... even more magical than Earthland itself. Hard to believe, but that was indeed the case.

    "You don't have to worry about me at all. I can take care of myself... I have already been to Kyoaka in the past. I've been to nearly all the portals here. It's a world of magic, the atmosphere is filled with Ethernano. You can expect your magical power to raise several times over once we enter, so try to not be alarmed."

    Her hand would move forward slowly as if controlled by countless invisible strings. Her long and slender fingers brushed through the strange matter, creating countless ripples that danced on the surface of the portal. Such a familiar feeling it was. But they did not have the time to just stand around and have fun. Or at least she didn't. Forcing her hand through, it would quickly dissipate and drag the rest of her body in.

    "I'll wait on the other side for a bit if you want to join me after all."

    Those were her last words that resounded in that world. And now, she stood in the tall grass, observing the majestic skies once again. The magic in this world... it was so powerful that its particles became concentrated enough to be visible. This formed phenomena similar to aurora lights in the skies, green intricate symbols dancing across the skies that appeared as the surface of the sea in motion. A world hidden in the hue of green. That was Kyoka, or at least the way Leila perceived it. She knew that when she was here last, her friend wasn't able to see the exact same scenery because of her body and senses. It was almost... saddening. Moving a bit from the portal, the girl would run her hand through the silver hair and look behind her. Was Cirven coming... or not? Even though there was no reward awaiting them, at least no promised one, she had a feeling he would not resist the temptation. Although it may have made Leila feel a bit forceful in a sense, as not many would refuse to help those in need like herself. Especially because of Noheme.

    "I wonder what she's doing now. It's been a while... I was so focused on this, I didn't even bother to check on her. Guess I really am a bad 'sister'."

    Not that they really were sisters. They were not bound by blood, nor magic or anything else. They were merely similar to one another by their origin. Something that hardly mattered to many. And yet, they were able to understand one another quite well. But all of this, it was just distracting her from the matter at hand! She had to push forward and complete her quest this time! She just... had to.

    The dual eyed demon listened to his partner tell him what details she knew. It was not a job at all that he was brought on but a personal vendetta it sounded like. He was not completely against helping her but not being paid to do something was a bit jarring to him now. He didn't think Leila was the type to hold any sort of grudge against something like an obstacle or goal. Last he met her, the duo teamed up with a woman named Lexa and helped her with her own issues which seemed like something he though Leila would do a lot more. The girl seemed too happy to really have any worries like the rest of the world but he figured that could be looked at thew other way too. People were known to use their happiness or the happiness of others to mask their inner demons, something he knew a good amount about even though he probably would not fully admit it himself.

    All that he was given for details was that there would be fighting against different opponents and they were meant to get some items along the way to do something. The girl was so vague with the details to him that it sounded like she knew only a small amount more than him about what they were doing even though she said she had been in Kyoka before. The small amount of detail annoyed him a bit because it sounded like she was hiding something from him and because of that she was not telling him all the details of why they were there. It wasn't like he was some sort of villain that planned to go against her for something she did. He would help her either way as a friend and as another favor to Noheme who he felt he owed things to.

    He watched as the girl went through the portal before he could even talk to her more on what was going on. He sighed and looked at the portal more before going into it. He honestly didn't trust the thing much at all because it just felt unnatural for others to travel to planets they were not from and impose their own will on those planets. He felt that it was not his place or anyone else's to got to these areas and deal with the scenarios that were there already. He slowly reached his hand up and touched the portal causing it to ripple from his finger making contact which he watched intently. It was like water in a way with how it reacted. He sighed and then put his arm through the portal and walked through slowly at first but then decided to get through it quickly and moved fast through the portal where he came through and bumped into Leila who was looking over the area. "Sorry! Are you okay?" He spoke out and held out his hands towards her in a cautious way to show that he wanted to help if she was hurt from his clumsiness.

    His focus shifted from her as the smell of the new area came to his nose. It smelled like an exotic flower where they were. It was a smell that he was able to discern was just how it all smelt like there in Kyoka. It was something that he figured he could only pick up on and other's like him with his super senses. He looked around the new area curious on why the smell was such a way at first but thought it could have been from how magical power was everywhere on this planet which also made him feel like he was stronger here somehow. A feeling that he liked but at the same time did not like.

    His focus returned to Leila. "Look, I am here to help you but I need more info on why we are here. Telling me vague things like we are after 'some items' and will have to fight 'some things' and we are going 'somewhere' does nothing but put me into a situation where I can be a liability due to the lack of information. You have been here before and from what my gut tells me this is something you know much more about than you put on so don't hide things from me. What is going on?" He questioned the girl hoping she would explain things more than she already had because he was telling the truth with him being a liability with a lack of info on what they were doing and could expect. "If you won't tell me more then I'm better off staying back on Earthland and letting you do this yourself."

    It seemed that Cirven really didn't take all that long to actually move through the gate in order to join the Silver-haired witch caretaker of Eden. It was something that clearly pleased the girl, yet she did not really show it any way. Though mostly because her small frame of a body was pushed to the side by the larger man who was clearly not experienced with the portals themselves and did not know how to properly walk through them without falling all over the place yet. For someone who adored exploration and lived as a traveler for majority of her Earthland life, such thing was almost confusing to Leila. Though she understood why some would be hesitant to visit these different worlds. Sometimes, they could be more than just dangerous. Though Kyoka was clearly one of the more lax ones. Though there were obviously dangers, as she said before, they would have to fight through a good number of enemies to actually get anywhere in their task.

    "I'm fine, you don't have to worry about this much..."

    She said in a rather low tone. With her body pushed to the side like that, she would have probably appeared much more fragile than she actually was to those that did not know her well. And the fact that the boy worried so much over just this probably meant that he did not really know how she really was either. Well, that did not matter much, as he would probably soon see. Though there was one thing the Eden's Witch didn't like, the fact that he soon started slowly doubting her, in a way.

    "If you really believe your own words, then I won't stop you. The portal is right behind you, so you can easily return without any problems. I'll be able to handle this somehow, always found a way."

    That was right. She had lived the life of a mage for over a year now, and in that time, she managed to learn so much. Paired with her prior knowledge from traveling all over the world, there wasn't many situations this one could't squeeze out of. She asked for the man's company, yes. But it surely wasn't absolutely necessary in this task? After all, the girl also had all of her spirits with her, always watching over her. With their help, she would be capable of handling this just fine.

    "There is no need to be mad or suspicious. This task is of a great value to me, but I do not have the information you seek. It was... my friend who heard the voice all that time back. But we never managed to find it. All I know is that... I will know when I see it with my own eyes. So I just have to keep moving forwardin this world until my task is finished, there is no other way around it! I have to fulfill this mission... because everything is wrong. And this could help me fix it!"

    She was convinced that she had to do this! No matter if she were to go alone or with someone else to back her up, she just knew she had to. For her own sake... and for Jiyu. The two of them fought so much here because Aurora took over. And Yuki served the goddess faithfully as well. Those two facts mixed together only resulted in so many hurtful things escaping from Leila's lips, directed at her best friend. Things she did not mean in the slightest and would have never said if she was in control of her own body back then. Oh, how the roles have come around... right now, there was not a shadow of a doubt that Aurora would help the Caretaker of Eden fulfill her mission for the sake of the girl that she spoke so harshly to. It really has been a while since that event. And so, filled with confidence, the girl would start walking forward, not even looking back. At least until the moment the nature around them started rustling, bushes slowly moving as if there was something hiding inside of them, trees bringing a shield to unknown forms of life lurking about. Already, it seemed that the hard part of the job would start.

    Leila seemed like she wanted to make sure she completed this 'job' this time. He could only imagine that she had been through something new since the last time they met and it had changed her to be more prideful about herself. He could respect that but he knew that even though she said she could handle herself that she would need help. Pride could only carry you so far in the world before it caused you some sort of turmoil which usually ended with you being dropped by your own pride and left to rot away. It was a fate that he was able to avoid somehow even with all that had happened to him.

    "I traveled all this way so I'm not going to just up and leave now. Sorry if I sounded angry or anything. It is just that I have a lot more on my shoulders than I did and knowing situations before I jump into them helps with that load on them." He then sighed after his speaking. He had really started to open up to people more it sounded like. It started with Noheme in the past and then Ruvel but had lead him to do the same with Leila here. Was it something with his age or was it something to do with the people he did it with? He couldn't completely grasp it because it made sense for him to open up to Noheme after their time together but Ruvel and Leila were a different story with the little time they had. He guessed it was all related to the circumstances behind him even starting to open up the way he did. "Let's just go and see where this takes us. I might be a lot more cautious here being that it is a new environment I know nothing about at all so I might not be my funny self as much." He knew in the back of his mind that the sentence he had just spoke out was somewhat of a lie. He could rarely hold back from cracking some sort of joke when doing anything.

    His pointed ears twitched as he heard the sounds of multiple things moving through some of the nearby bushes and the area around the portal. He didn't know what to expect at all for creatures of this world but he made sure to be ready for anything and used his magic to allow his limbs to be covered in black electricity to enhance his melee strikes so that he could cut like blades with them. "Looks like you will get to show me how much stronger you have gotten since we last met sooner than I thought." He spoke out as he looked around them in order to try and get his eyes on any creatures over just his ears hearing them. His right eyebrow raised up as he heard a familiar growl coming from the bushes. The growl that sounded like a hungry dog to him or at least that was what he assumed it was.

    His assumption was confirmed when a pack of wolves found their way out of the bushes near the two mages and snarled at them with their fangs showing. "So it looks like this place is similar to Earthland with the creatures it has or that is just my guess so far..." He mumbled out loud, not really looking for any sort of reply. "Welp, let's feed these hungry guys then." He moved closer to the snarling beasts and each of them scattered out around both him and Leila as he moved as if to say that they were not going to be able to get away simply by walking. Cirven looked around at each of the snarling beasts and shrugged. "Looks like you don't really know who is the alpha here, huh? No worries. I'll show you." His red eye let off a glow of red as he finished speaking.

    One of the wolves closest to him lunged up at him with its mouth agape in order to take a chunk out of the demon but before it could do so was quickly met with a electrified claw from Cirven, sending it to the ground in a whimper of pain. At the sight of this the other wolves did not let up on their attack and attempted the same with similar results over and over again. Some of the wolves were not as hurt as the others and attempted to attack again but found themselves back on the ground whimpering like puppies. It was like most of the training Cirven did daily so the wolves were unknowingly at a disadvantage. The demon was the type to challenge himself to dodge, parry, block and attack while being attacked as a sort of way to use his speed to quickly deal with opponents and this scenario was no different from that at all as he continued to repel the attacks aimed at him. His focus on what he was doing kept him from paying much attention to how Leila was handling the wolves attacking them but that did not mean he did not make sure she was doing okay with each second he had an opening to look at her. "Don't die over there. This is just starting."

    "If you're not going to leave in the first place, then there is no need to threaten me with that fact. It's... not always appreciated..."

    She would slow down toward the end of her sentence, almost as if she was struggling to find the correct words to even say. Obviously, she did not mean it in any sort of aggressive way where she would call him out. However, she found his actions pointless. Perhaps it was just her slowly reverting to her old self, but she found herself trying to question the morals of those around her. Even though she herself now held the position of a hero, she was the prime candidate for her own mockery. Such chaos dictating her actions... was it part of the reason why she wanted to finish this 'contract' of hers? Hoping that it would somehow help her change into the person she wanted to be instead of the person she always was? Ah... there were no words she could really speak out about the subject, it seemed. Instead, she just took few step back as the growling reached her ears, her eyes finally picking up what was in front of her, as if they were in a black haze until now and unable to see anything at all.

    "I won't be able to show much if you take them all out yourself."

    She would reply in a low voice, watching the demon take out a good number of the opponents with quite the ease. Despite his destructive slayer magic, he was not killing them, not one of them. It certainly sparked a reaction from the silver-haired maiden, even if it was not a visible one. Now it really was her turn to show what she was capable of, however. For the hungry wolves, smelling fresh flesh that had entered the realm, seemed relentless.

    "I have to apologize. I now realize that my previous words might have made it seems like I believe my powers to make me almost invincible to the threat of this world. What I really meant by 'I'll be able to handle this' was the fact that I have my own allies that will always watch my back."

    With those words, her hand would quickly pull out something shining in a golden light from one of her many pockets. And as she extended said hand with the object, it became apparent that it was a golden summoning key. A Zodiac Key used by only the luckiest of celestial spirit summoners. And as the girl's magic poured into it, the key would shine in a golden light most brilliant, almost blinding anyone and everyone on the battlefield momentarily.

    "I call you forth, you who passes judgment on the stars, you who holds both black and white in your hands and assuring balance amidst them all.
    Heavenly Scales - Libra!"


    "And..."

    "Flowers in the Garden bloom, I seek your aid. You who grew my world out of a single seed, descent and be by my side once again, you who is me, me who is you.
    Goddess of the Gardens of Eden - Aurora!"

    While the key itself created a magic circle from which a beautiful dark-skinned woman moved out, there was something much more. The skies themselves split apart with the second incantation, a gigantic magical circle adorning the view above them instead of the clouds and stars. It was formed only by the most brilliant and complex shapes as a light descended onto the land where they were standing, a feminine figure forming. An attire that was floating in the air along with her body, a star-shaped staff in her hand, several pairs of wings flapping behind her back, animal ears and tail swaying in the gentle breeze and a halo of pure magical energy static above her head. A being most unique was suddenly floating right behind the Eden's witch, the golden spirit also standing by her side.

    "This is what I meant by my words. Libra, take the left side!"

    The black haired female would quickly move her hand to the hilt of her katana that rested by her side with a playful "Yup, yup~", speeding up into the crowd of hungry animals, unsheathing her weapon and striking each one of them in what appeared to me almost one singular motion. She even took the care to only attack with the dull side of her weapon, merely delivering pain to the animals rather than outright killing them. Seeing such display, Leila knew that this side was taken care of, prompting her to quickly turn to the more majestic of the trio.

    "Aurora... please..."

    Her voice seemed to be weaker as if she was speaking to an actual authority, someone that was far above her own existence and much more powerful than she was. The summoned goddess would sigh as she ran her hand through the plentiful hair, looking at Cirven and then back at her summoner.

    "Fine, fine! Stop looking at me like that, already, sheesh. I'll help... it's only fair after what I've done when you were here last with that precious friend of yours."

    After she said those words, she would strengthen the grip on her staff, several lightning-like sparks suddenly emerging from her body as eight different beads of black mass quickly formed behind the goddess' back. An energy that Cirven could have possibly recognized, as he had seen and felt it before in his life. And with a single motion of the staff, these eight balls would rapidly start moving about the battlefield, bouncing between the remaining wolves and easily knocking them out with each hit. It almost seemed unfair to the animals. But such result was only to be expected. After all, the Rising Star had just pulled out her strongest summons. She was clearly in no mood to be messing around.

    "Did you really have to open my gate for something like this? Especially when you have a god slayer around? Heretics like him only make the air sour..."

    Cirven grunted out as the wolves continued to attack at him. He wanted to simply kill the beasts but he could not bring himself to do so because he knew they were only following their instincts and they had their will bent by it. The demon could never be at full strength due to him needing to have the will to want to kill what he was fighting. This was something that not many people knew about him. The person who taught him the ability to summon up a purple aura in order to cut down and kill and his daughter were really the only ones who knew about it.

    Black electricity erupted out from his arms as he struck another wolf that lunged towards him. He let out a sigh and looked around him to see there were still a good amount of wolves still standing. "I guess I will go on the offensive more so that this can be over faster." With his self rambling done the demon dashed forward towards the beasts in front of him and swung his arms out in front of him aiming to hit each wolf that came into his path. His dashing flurry made contact with most of the wolves and left their numbers under half of what was there but that did not do anything to their fearless instinct and hunger for the flesh of him and Leila. "You guys are pretty stubborn, huh?" He spoke out and then slapped away another wolf that jumped at him. He now stood on the other side of the wolves where he was able to look directly at Leila who was speaking to him about her ability to 'handle this'. His eyebrow raised as he watched her pull out a celestial spirit key. He had seen multiple different celestial keys before, even a few that were the corrupted dark versions of the keys which he fought against in the past.

    With the new addition of allies added to the fight the wolves were quickly defeated even though it sounded like one of the new additions to the team, 'Aurora' had some type of issue with helping and an issue with Cirven himself. The demon's limbs went back to normal and the black static disappeared from them as he made his way to get closer to Leila and her summons. "Disliking me because I use a magic based on slaying Gods? You telling me a God-like being is scared of my magic or maybe just disgusted with it? Gotta say, you are the first to be that way, you know?" He shot a fang-filled grin to Aurora. "You probably don't care but I am Cirven and I am here to help Leila. One of those things I figure I owe her sister as a favor. So if anything, tolerate me for awhile longer. Maybe you will find a way of liking me like Noheme did."

    His eyes trailed off to Leila and he continued speaking. "So where to next?
    Or are we just following the flow of the wind or some random phenomenon on this planet?
    " He still didn't like that they were just figuring things out as they went in such an unfamiliar place but he figured he tease Leila while they were there. He wasn't completely sure how she would take it but hoped his sly grin would tell her that he was just trying to mess with her. "What exactly happened when you were last here? Were there any enemies or area you remember going to?" He tried to pry for any other info he could get out of her though she had said she had told him everything she knew. He thought that she would know more about the area from when she was last there. "Maybe if you don't remember things correctly Aurora will? Same questions to you too, miss Overly Done Goddess." He locked his eyes onto Aurora's with his last sentence as if he were trying to read her mind or something similar. The truth to it was he was trying to see if she was lying about what she knew or hiding anything from him by the look in her eyes.

    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix C-Rank

    The black orbs eventually made their way back to Aurora's back where they slowly dissipated into the eternal nothingness of this world, going seemingly unnoticed by the demon of absorption. And her heavenly body would float, glide through the air in a manner most graceful as her long, slender arms wrapped around her summoner's body, embracing the silver-haired maiden from behind with a smile adorning her expression along with rosy cheeks. Those blue eyes of hers, appearing almost as if the galaxy itself was inside of them, would lock onto the male nearby, curiously gazing at his corporeal form before closing for a bit, giving them well deserved rest.

    "Naturally I know who you are. But you do not know who I am, it seems. Else you would not be asking questions like that. My name is Aurora Solaris, a Goddess that created the Gardens of Eden. I am Leila and Leila is me. Our soul is one, for she was born from me. Our memories, experience and powers, we share it all. And so, I know full well who you are, Cirven Mizune."

    Leila herself would simply avert her gaze to avoid any possible eye contact, allowing her peepers to take in the green hued nature that surrounded them instead, otherworldly in its aspect and visage. Her body trembled slightly as Libra stepped between the demon and the due, glaring at the man herself with her hand ready on the katana she had just used to defeat the wolves.

    "Step down, Libra. He's not going to attack. Not for as long as Noheme continues to exist herself. You went on plenty of interesting adventures with my 'sister', did you not? I'm surprised she does not share my view on that magic you wield... merely the thought of someone having powers specifically designed to slaughter our kin without mercy makes me want to... heh, oh well."

    Letting go of her summoner, she would once again float into the air behind Leila, her many wings caressing the air around her. And the now freed Eden's caretaker would fall to the ground, her eyes widened in shock as her hands rested on the grass-covered floor. Something beneath it was amiss to this place, the dirt caked and fertilized by dried blood.

    "So we really are at the exact same spot as last time, aren't we..."

    Libra would speak as she herself turned her back toward the scene, her form most likely unable to bear witness to her master's wounds of the past. Small tears would appear in the corners of Leila's eyes. And as she tried to wipe them, she would look up at her partner, sniffing for a bit.

    "You want to know what happened here last time? Despair and sadness. A friendship nearly broken, bonds falling apart in an instant as fragile hearts bled on this very spot, our souls and bodies mangled and lacerated alike. Our search for the items and the final location did not bring any fruit at all... only destruction. Maybe it was ever since then that all was going downhill. Maybe... if I had never been revived, that would have been for the best."

    Saying her final words, her head would collapse down again, her body doing its very best to not fall onto the ground completely, rendering the poor girl helpless once again. But Aurora would not allow it, her frame moving between the silver-haired maiden and Cirven to face him from a much closer range.

    "A voice of magical origin escaped the weave of this world and called out for help. And so, Leila along with her best friend came to this world in order to help. Of course, the two did not get all that far. The enemies wielded flames, weakness for the both of them. Listem to me, demon. We do not need to complete this task. In fact, it might not even be possible for us to complete it now, after so much time. One of us merely needs to recover from her wounds, is all."

    And while the descended goddess spoke those words, Libra would fall onto her knees as well, right next to her master in order to embrace her and comfort her. In the end, this truly was no contract at all. Just a voyage to another world, filled with painful memories that waited ever so patiently to strike at one's fragile heart once again. It seemed that such memories awaited around every single corner for the nature mage, for the pendulum of time, the grand clockwork was still moving forward. With her revival, the entire world had changed, the grand clock moving to yesterday instead of tomorrow. But not everything could be re-done, even with such magic at work. Attempting to fix things that were not wrong, moving in the wrong direction, the girl was dancing on the thorns of her own blindness, shortcomings that could not be seen by anyone. And while she hoped that this place would allow her to fix mistakes she had made, only the opposite was the truth. After all, her fate was still shackled by an invisible force, unknown to their mortal minds. All she could truly do was obey and move forward like a pawn without any will. At least for now...

    The others might not have noticed it but Cirven did catch the black orbs that went into Aurora's body. It was strikingly similar to those that Noheme had used in the past but he had already asked his questions and didn't want to bother with asking more, at least not until the others were answered. Aurora told him almost everything he needed to know about Leila and herself. The two were one and the same which by looks no one could really tell but Cirven could smell their scent and caught on that they were exactly the same also. He did not want to assume things though and because of this threw out a list of questions hoping that they would tell him more than he asked which they seemed to completely oblige to.

    He continued to simply listen and watch as the Aurora explained more. She stopped Libra from attacking him which would be a good thing because the two fighting wouldn't solve anything. He simply looked at Libra as she readied herself and then stopped upon the order from Aurora. He could tell it was a tense situation and they each did not completely trust him which he could understand. He had the power to hurt them more than most others could due to his magic being used to slay Gods. It would be a similar situation if he met someone with a power meant for killing him, though he was the type to cautiously trust someone while not making his views known to them unless they would later prove themselves to be trusting enough to know his thoughts on them at first.

    "Your 'sister' and I did go on multiple interesting adventures. They were adventures that helped us see just who the other was and helped us make sure that we could trust each other with our lives. She knew I used a magic meant to kill her, yeah but she knew that it wouldn't come to that point. I use this magic to help those who need it and to hurt those who need it. Leila and you, Aurora don't need to be hurt at all and need help here." He replied back to Aurora's comment. "Maybe after this whole thing you can find a sort of trust in me like Noheme has."

    He stopped speaking as he saw Leila crumble to the ground and tears falling down from her face. It looked like the last time she was here had a greater effect on her than she had first shown him. She then spoke out in a voice shrouded in pain and sadness about what happened when she was last on this planet. About how she lost her friend and from what Cirven could gather a fight that broke out in the very spot they stood. The girl continued to speak showing more of her despair and displeasure in what happened in the past at the end of her sentence as she stated 'Maybe... if I had never been revived, that would have been for the best.' which caused Cirven to let out a sigh and speak out. "Old wounds heal up at some point. They will leave scars and memories but that doesn't mean that they can't be healed. Your existence is not one of those wounds either." He was able to speak out before his mind raced off into his own thoughts. His eyes were locked onto Leila who had bowed her head towards the ground and looked to be crying more from the pain she was feeling. The sight caused the demon to remember his own sister crying as he was forced to be an assassin in order to keep her alive. The tears she shed over and over again for what she felt she was causing him to do for her as if he didn't want to save her somehow.

    He was pulled out from his own thoughts as Aurora spoke out again about exactly what happened the last time they were on the planet. A cry for help called out from some type of magical essence to Leila and her best friend to come help it but the two did not get far because of enemies wielding flames. Aurora continued to tell the demon that this was not a job anymore and was not about completing the job at all. It was about Leila dealing with her past failure and overcoming the pain she has from it still. The demon nodded to Aurora and then spoke out with his eyes trailing over to each of the women near him. "Sorry to bring you the pain of your past you had here but either way I am here to make sure that you are able to see this through till the end. Not as a favor to your sister or anyone but to help you out. You sound like you will need my help with dealing with some threats at some point that you had trouble with in the past. So yes, I'll do this for free and not ask anything back in return at all. I kind of needing something to do outside of my office anyways." His eyes stopped onto Aurora's. "I'm here to help like I have said before even though I know you don't like me due to the magic I use. I just hope you can get over that aspect of me and understand that there is more to what stands in front of you than just magic. I do have a lot of magic power though." He gave the Goddess a sly grin. "Take your time to gather yourself, Leila. I will be right here waiting." Cirven turned around and looked around the area near them for any signs of more attacks or anything else suspicious near them. He wanted to make sure that they would not be surprised by anything during the rest of their trip on the planet, especially after hearing that the last trip Leila had there did not go so well for her at all. He would make sure that it did not end the same way at all to what it did in the past.

    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix C-Rank

    Aurora would but look into the distance with a smile on her face, her grip on the star staff seemingly tightening by the moment. And in only a few seconds, she would sigh and turn her back toward Cirven, now gazing at the nearly collapsed Leila.

    "You expect far too much from someone like us. There are barriers stronger than the reality itself, something we will never be able to shatter. We... It's time again. Prepare yourself."

    Just as the goddess said those words, an unpleasant smell of burning would waft through the air. Soon after, black smoke would start rising into the clouds in all direction as the forest and other nature that surrounded them caught ablaze, flames quickly consuming everything. And from them, a large number of elemental bodies slowly ascending and walking toward the group, leaving naught but black steps on the ground behind them. Nodding toward Libra, Aurora would quickly fly far into the air while the other Zodiac spirit let go of her summoner and jumped far back, unsheathing her blade. There would be time for more pleasantries, but not right now. Especially not now... for this specific encounter was one of the reasons Aurora even agreed to be part of this entire charade. As the flame astronachs marched, a rather large cluster of magical power would radiate amidst them, something suddenly bursting forth from the wall of flames. A giant one, much larger and clearly way more powerful than the rest. Without a moment of hesitation, it aimed straight at Leila, appearing behind her small form in a fragment of a second, one of its arms stretched backward in preparation for a downward punch. And it went through with it too. Only, the flaming hand would be stopped far sooner, not even hitting the ground despite it's fierce and powerful motion.

    "Take care of the rest, please... I am no longer afraid of flames. I am no longer afraid of pain. I have been dead for thousands of years, walking the void... and today, as I stand here... I finally live."

    No, it was caught instead. In that single instant, the silver-haired maiden got back up on her feet, raising her hand up above her and simply catching the Astronach's attack with her very own palm. She cared not for its body made out of flames... hell, her own body now was ablaze as well. The corruption mark that adorned many spots on her body shining with a crimson glow, like a burned out wood that still had flames inside. And yet, she did not present anyone with any clear sign of discomfort, not even flinching once. The hand that stopped the attack already transformed, no longer flesh but the bark of a tree, malformed and covered in blood as it lost it's shape, growing larger and more massive in order to ensure that the incoming blow was indeed stopped. The girl's expression suddenly changed into one of anger as she turned around, flinging the Astronach's hand to the side and performing a strike of her own, the already transformed hand penetrating the flames that formed its body like nothing. A moment of nothing, followed by a sudden growth that made the girl's hand look like an ever extending spear, pushing the elemental far into the air. Of course, the beast tried to fight back, extending its hands toward Leila as a ball of fire started forming in front of it. It started small but quickly grew into something, much, much larger and brilliant. A flaming core that was probably capable of scorching this entire area if it was allowed. And this very attack was now starting to move toward the Eden's caretaker.

    But there were other players on the field still! Ones that already forged and perfected many fighting strategies over their time by Leila's side. All of a sudden, the ball of flames stopped in the air and started moving backward as the gravity in the area began to be altered, Libra revealing her floating form nearby and working her magic. Even a monster of manna as an Astronach had some will of its own. And it's body language showed it in this very moment, the clear surprise, or perhaps that it was impressed, confused mayhaps that something like this was happening to its mighty attack. Libra, the Heavenly scales... she was a golden Zodiac key, one of the most powerful spirits that exist in this world. An ally that anyone would envy! The gravity field extended beyond the attack as well, affecting the spirit's summoner who was now starting to float into the air slowly herself. And to help it, giant wings of twigs and colorful leaves would suddenly sprout out of her back, majestically flapping in the air as the witch started closing in on the enemy. Aurora finally joined as well, using her own many pairs of wings to follow right behind her other self.

    "You won the last time... but I won't let that happen again! I... I have decided to fight!!"

    As the wood that was holding the Astronach up in the air burned away near that moving sun, the monster would conjure its own pair of flaming wings, being pulled upward by the reversed gravity in the process. However, it seemed that its power was greater after all, capable of moving against the gravitational pull as a molten sword grew in its hand. A clear reply, a long katana of gray corrupted Eden wood forming in Leila's hand as she clashed with the spirit, the heat alone slowly chewing away at her life force. But with the help of a goddess right next to her as Aurora entered the clash herself using her staff, the two girls were able to push back with their powers combined, forcing the elemental to back away involuntarily. The wings of flame suddenly started growing even more, now resembling a pair of hands more than anything as they tried to scorch the two females, forcing them to leap back and create some distance as well.

    "My oh my, this one just refuses to admit defeat. Whatever will you do, Leila?"

    Aurora would tease her other half as the injured and burned girl looked up at the elemental and Libra who was floating behind it. She might have just been teased by the goddess, but her reply would be a sly smile.

    "We. We will finish it. Libra! Just like the old days... Planetary formation!"

    The combo attack that the two of them used to perform, a finishing move that would always decommission the enemy for good. Ah, when was the last time they performed it...? Oh. In that arena, trying to show off to Frey Rune as they fought together. A wavering smile, one that would steel itself as the girl pointed at the Astronach. The flow of gravity changed once more, as the enemy now became its very core. Naturally, this caused that giant floating fireball to actually crashed into its caster, not that it really did anything to a body made out of flames and magma. But that was only the start, as Leila kneeled down and placed her hands on the ground, several giant roots suddenly piercing out and moving about, their sole goal to break the soil they were standing on into pieces. And as these pieces were made, they would float up into the air and close in on the enemy. That was the goal of Libra's ability, to encase the enemy in whatever could be found around. And in only mere seconds, a tiny planet would start growing with the elemental at its core, the heat giving the spectacle an impressive orange tint and glow. Now, only one last step was missing.

    "Sorry... I'm not strong enough to perform the Nature Cannon yet. Could you do the honors?"

    Aurora merely sighed as the black orbs formed behind her back once more, all eight of them floating in front of the goddess this time, their essence combining into one. It took a bit of doing, but soon all of them formed a singular black spear that the winged girl held and with a smirk, threw at the giant ball floating in the skies. One would not think her throwing arm was that strong, creating a sonic boom the moment the spear left her grip, visibly piercing the air and going through the artificial planet as if it was a knife going through heated butter. So much shock was created in the process that the entire construct erupted into an explosion of raw energy, a firework that one would not see very often. A very potent one that did not leave a single trace of the enemy behind. The trio was victorious as they challenged the strongest of the enemies. Only a magical core would fall on the ground beneath, marking their victory. The only question remaining now was - how exactly did Cirven take on his part with the rest of the enemies?

    Cirven's ears twitched suddenly as he heard some sort of noise reminiscent to things burning. His nose also twitched as he took a whiff of the air which confirmed his suspicion as he the smell of burnt plants and grass rushed into his nose. Something or something was coming to confront them from nearby. His ears caught the sound of Aurora talking as he pin pointed where the beings were coming from with the combined efforts of his senses. "Yeah, we have company incoming." He quickly jumped back as five fire constructs made their way out of the nearby brush, burning everything near them. "Maybe this will be good practice for learning how to shape those barriers so that we can manipulate them, right?" He commented on what Aurora had just said showing his stubbornness with giving up. The giant construct quickly moved towards Leila and her friends and before the demon could react he was swarmed by blasts of flame from the other four smaller constructs. "Don't have much of a choice either way. Take care of yourself!" The demon called out to Leila plea to deal with the other enemies.

    "No need to hold back much from me, huh?" The demon spoke out as his limbs were again covered by black electricity but this time a purple aura enveloped his limbs along with it. Even though he was able to achieve this transformation he was still under a lot of fire from his enemies, literally as they continued to send out bolts of flame at him. He managed to keep their attention and distract them from possibly helping their massive ally as he moved to have them face away from the separate battle raging near them and towards some more brush near them. Their flames raged over the brush as they missed and started up small fires everywhere. The dual eyed demon knew that if he didn't act soon that the missed attacks would combine into a raging fire that he might not have been able to stop. "You guys are getting a bit annoying." Cirven attempted to use his speed to close in on one of the four enemies in front of him but with their collaborated attacks it only made him have to put up his arms and block the flames heading at him which engulfed his figure in a ball of flame. He jumped in the air after being hit by multiple attacks using the quick flip to get the flames off his body a bit and threw off his cloak that was burning away from being hit. This revealed his belt of knives around his waist as well as left him only wearing his white sleeveless shirt and black pants. The look in his eyes changed to a more serious glare as he found himself at a disadvantage. He didn't waste time talking like his usual self either.

    The demon pulled two of the knives off from his belt and held them in his hands which also then were engulfed in the fusion of black and purple auras he had on his limbs.. The constructs fired more bolts of flame at him but something was different. Cirven stood still as the bolts flew at him but just before they could reach him he moved with a newfound speed and dodged each attack while standing his ground. "Sorry about this but I'm not exactly wanting to play around with either of you now." The demon rushed forward as more of the bolts flew towards him. He used his new speed to dodge the attacks and even used the knives in his hands to cut through some of the flames if they got too close. With his charge he found himself in front of one of the more dreary looking constructs and swung his knives across his body. The construct let out an inaudible moan before dispersing into the air. The other constructs attempted to hit him with more bolts but they missed again as their target dodged again and found himself at the other dreary looking construct and dealt with it too leaving their numbers cut down by half.

    The last two constructs looked in much better shape than the two Cirven had cut down but that did not deter the demon in his swift movement towards them. After again dodging multiple shots fired at him Cirven found himself near another of his enemies and swung out one of his knives to hit it but this construct reached out and grabbed his wrist before he could get his full swing in. The contact with the construct burned away at Cirven's wrist but the demon didn't respond to the pain and instead used his other knife to stab into the constructs head killing it like the others with it dispersing into the air. This left a lone construct left for the demon to deal with that he charged his way to and attacked. The construct managed to jump out of the way of the attack and moved to the flames of the brush nearby where it consumed the flames that it and its allies had fired earlier and had combined into a fire. The construct grew five times bigger into a wall of fire from the consumption of the flames and started to angrily rage with the flames itself being a sort of roar for it. Cirven smiled. "You honestly made this easier by doing that,
    idiot.
    " Black electricity curled out from his mouth as he smiled and then he took in a deep breath of air until his cheeks puffed out. The new wall of flame the construct had become became bigger and then shot off a giant blast of fire towards Cirven. In retaliation to the blast heading at him the demon let off a massive blast of black electricity which quickly overwhelmed the flames sent at him and collided with the constructs new form and engulfed it. "Unholy lightning is meant to completely destroy everything and anything. Sorry but you fall into that category." Cirven spoke out as the construct let out an inaudible yell and then dispersed taking all of the fire with it.

    The demon turned to his allies and gave a wave to them. "Looks like you had as much fun as I did. I kind of noticed things from the corner of my eyes as I was dealing with them. You have a similar magic to Noheme, huh? It's not a surprise really but it is something I took note of earlier. Are you okay, Leila?" He made his way towards the women as he put both his knives away and released the aura over his limbs. He had a similar feeling to the times when he fought together with Noheme against enemies. It was nice for him to feel it again like he had an ally who he didn't have to worry about fighting alongside for once.

    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix C-Rank

    The battle was over, leaving only scorched ground and a forest that was slowly fading away in the flames, leaving behind on black skeletons of what it once was, a cruel reminder that all things will one day fade into nothingness as they are consumed by the fate that awaits all. Even in this world, violence would not be subdued. No matter where, as long as beings with free will existed, there would be a conflict for one reason or another, even if the four creatures who remain victorious did not even know why the enemy attacked them. Did they even need a reason? The very same elementals attacked Leila when she was here last time as well, the flames that her friend feared so much taking on a much more horrid form that made the Wind witch faint. Left alone to protect her, the Eden's caretaker used up too much of her will, allowing Aurora to take over her mind for a limited amount of time and cause all kinds of trouble by saying things that the silver-haired maiden did not mean.But such seemed to be the nature of most arguments between people. Why do we say things that we do not mean, why do we not think in simple logic that would fix our problems? Questions like that raced through the female's mind quite often, and even now as she turned away from the demon who had walked up to her and spoke out loud.

    "I don't think there is much to be enjoyed in battle. After all, there always has to be a losing party... and more often than not, the price is far too high."

    Her tone was sad, yet strangely neutral as she lifted her left hand up and looked at it. The Eden's corruption... a gray bark-like skin covering most of it now, though also darkened in color from the flames, embers still resonating within it and making it glow faintly. She might have won the struggle against the magical construct that held a great deal of power, but it was not a flawless victory. She had sustained serious damage in the process, even if she was not really showing it to the outside world. In the end, her physical form was the same as Noheme's, a shell that she had to wear in order to be able to interact with this world properly. Part of a reason why they could be considered true immortals, as even if their bodies were completely destroyed and erased from the existence, their divine forms and souls would still be there, capable of creating a new body that would serve them. In a way, they were naught but disgusting monsters capable of just about anything they would put their mind into. Because of such, Leila had tried taking on a more pacifistic view toward the outer world, even after countless struggles and contracts that placed her in danger again and again, she had not killed once. At least not when she was her sane self... but when Aurora was in control, this body had killed one. An old man that wished to drain her of her powers, the man that was responsible for dividing Aurora's soul and giving birth to Leila by doing so. That was the sin she had to carry on her shoulders always, the one life that she had taken in a rage as the goddess entered her mind.

    "Well, it wasn't too bad. Though it was beyond clear that someone like you would much rather go against an opponent of far greater strength, yes? What a shame that you have to be helping poor Leila who had lost most of her powers and cannot afford to go on dangerous contracts like that! Oh, and of course me and her have the same abilities. Though, this is not really a magic. It's pure dark made manifest, the core of black. Something that all who obtained power from the Miracle Demons such as Lilith are capable of. Leila was able to use that power too at one point~"

    Aurora would step in, her teasing tone piercing the ears of all present perhaps in an attempt to lighten the mood or if one were to delve into a more sinister way of thinking, to agitate Leila and make the girl feel bad about herself. But in any case, the enemy was down and they were free to go anywhere they wanted if they so desired. The question was, did they actually want to go anywhere at all? They still had no clear goal in sight or mind, nor any knowledge of how to find the finish line. Libra did scoop up the magical core that remained from the construct, bringing it over and presenting it to the group. But that alone was far from enough, as they needed three different items. If they were to try and gather them all, the journey would be far longer than it was right now and more powerful enemies would stand before them, putting their skills to the test. And while the Eden's caretaker was clearly quite capable now, she did struggle a bit against the flaming Astronach. Would she be able to take down another opponent of that level, maybe two or three? Probably not, even with the help of Leila and Aurora... but the truth was, holding the gates open was also draining her of her mana, and not even by an inconsiderable amount either.

    "Haah... I know I have said that I'll help because of what I did when you were here last, but I don't think it's a good idea to continue this charade. We don't have any clues as to where to go, we don't know who we will have to face and most importantly, we don't even really know what to look for. Not everything might be as obvious as this magic core. I say beat it. We had our fun, gained new experience alongside it, all's good. If you're still upset about your business with Kazehime even after gathering that new courage to fight, I'm sure we'll be able to find other leads as to what might be going on."

    Saying all that, she would also turn to face Cirven. While he was here to help them with their quest, he also had some right to say his piece toward the matter at hand. His opinion as to what they should do counted just as much as anyone else's here.
