    Beasts of Gold

    Post by Leila Vergious on 8th December 2017, 3:12 pm




    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix A-Rank

    Confusion. That was by far the most fitting word that could be used to describe Leila right now. The poor girl was slowly walking down a street of a very familiar town of Hargeon, many different people walking by her and minding their own business. Though she was the one sticking out most, by far. Instead of regular everyday clothes, she had ones that could only be described as a ‘slightly provocative ninja uniform’. Though that was not really what she wanted it to look like. By her side was a small wolf that was standing out as well, and not only because of the fact that it was a wolf. Its fur was bright green with red marks all over it. The unusual coloring of it drew many unwanted looks, some from regular bystanders, some from children that wanted to play with the fluffy creature. Unfortunately, neither the wolf or her owner was in the mood for something like that. Finding the nearest bench in a corner between buildings and with some distance from the moving crowds, the girl had to sit down and cover her face with her palms for a moment. Things were… not exactly the best for her at the moment. Anyone could guess that much, surely. The wolf looked at her with a sad expression and whimpered, prompting the female to look back at it and force a kind smile while stroking its head a little bit. She did not remember ever owning a wolf like this.

    There was something in the back of her head that made the wolf look familiar, but that was it. When she first saw it, she automatically shouted its name but had no idea how she knew it. Not only that, many things did not alight with what she remembered. She just needed to clear her head for a moment and think about it all. With a rather loud sigh, she would just lean back into the hard wood of the bench she sat upon and gazed up at the skies. A pristine blue with few clouds trying to hide the beautiful color from everyone’s vision. At this point, there was no sign of any attack possibly incoming at all. No one knew yet. Of the great, terrible shadow that was getting closer with each passing second. Yet another loud sigh that would make few nearby heads turn toward the girl for few seconds. So, why exactly was she in this town? Well, she always liked Hargeon and was even present when it was being repaired. Her magic was quite useful back then, allowing her to just grow new trees that could be used for wood, or bend them around to carry heavy materials to higher places. Back then, there was even a jet-black onyx dragon that was helping out, it was fascinating! One of the very first experiences the girl had in Fiore as a mage, too. She always looked fondly at those times. And strangely, she felt as if she was closer to those memories now than ever.

    Getting back up, she would gesture toward Melon to follow. The familiarity of this place was not the only reason why she was here. Ever since she awoke in an empty and dry cave near Rose Garden, she had these images flashing in and out of her mind. And the most common one she could recognize was a girl with long, green hair. The second one was a Lamia Scale guild mark. Whether those two were at all connected, she had no idea. But it was pretty much the only lead she had. If she could find this female she seemed to somewhat remember, then perhaps she could get some answers as to what was going on. Because right now, her memory just did not align up properly. The last mission she took on was diving deep into the sea for a research team she helped before. She was not alone, a young girl named Frey Rune was with her. But after that, things went South rather quickly. Her best friend, Jiyu Kazehime, lost control of her newly gained Inugami powers and went on a rampage. It was a desperate situation and Leila wanted to do all she could in order to help. But the way it ended… she had to use a primordial seal. An ancient spell that could seal away anything. But the price was her own existence. Leila was not supposed to exist anymore. She was supposed to be dead, permanently. All for the sake of saving her best friend.

    Everything went dark and then she just kinda woke up in that cave, hurting all over. Her clothes were looking different, though it was still the same transforming armor she always had. And for some reason, she now had a permanent fox tail and ears. These traits were something she occasionally gained when using a power of her regalia, a magical item that was gifted to her by her Celestial Spirits. But it never lasted this long. What more, there was a powerful looking weapon in the cave with her. And something about it just made it feel right to take along. The mechanical blade was now resting suspended behind the girl’s back. She had also already gone to Rose Garden to personally confirm the fate of her friend. Jiyu was okay, alive and seemingly well. The primordial seal must have worked the way it was intended, giving the four-faced goddess some control over her powers again. Which did not explain yet another strangeness. The primordial seal, it was on Leila as well. It only showed when she tried to use her magic as if to prevent her. Right now, she was completely cut off from her own world, from the Gardens of Eden. That meant most of her magic was completely unusable and she was unable to summon any of her spirits. A rather worrisome thing indeed. Finally, she found herself right in front of the main entrance to the unfamiliar guild hall. She didn’t really know anyone here, so she had to look for this mysterious woman by herself. If she even was present in here.

    The latest visitor to the Lamia Scale castle was not the only one that had been in a state of confusion. Nearly a week had passed since Samira had completed her last job. Completed. That was a word that would be in the records under a column that left no real room for details. Whether the mission had actually been completed was a mystery. As far as the summoner was concerned it was a failure until she had proof to the contrary. It was supposed to have been a simple escort mission that would hopefully result in some form of peace between the natives of some floating continent behind a Wakusei portal and of a group of explorers that had a mage known as Leila Vergious as its leader. It had been going well and such a thing should have been a clear sign that something was wrong. Nothing ever went right whenever Samira signed up for a seemingly easy task. Just as negotiations were taking place, some weird demon looking boy had appeared, a boy that was somehow connected to Leila. As he disappeared the village of the natives was attacked by an army of undead that had been risen by the corrupted magic of a monolith. The structure had been destroyed with the two mages working together, and Leila finishing it off with a power Samira had never seen her use even back during the Bosco mission where they had faced against a clone of the Celestial King.

    No one was allowed to celebrate, however. The demon boy had appeared again and had trapped Leila in a barrier. A sort of clock had appeared and began ticking. Not enough time had been left for Samira to figure out how to stop the spell or break Leila free from her entrapment. The hour hand of the clock hit twelve and the summoner had been blinded as the world was engulfed in a bright light. Before she could regain her sight, she was forcibly pushed through the Wakusei portal by the spell and had been locked out completely. There was no returning there to see what had happened and what became of everyone on the mystery continent. She had spent the next few days doing research on how to reactivate the portal and even on the demon looking boy himself. The name Unknown was something she heard Leila use for him when she had become a victim of his spell, but that was just about all she had. On both ends she had come up with absolutely no results. She had even questioned her own spirits regarding him and if they could locate Libra in the celestial realm. Nothing.

    Samira had to just come to terms with the fact she may very well never know what happened. It was harder to do than it should have been though. She was not that close to Leila, in fact, they were still basically strangers. That did not stop her from worrying though. In a way it had been her fault. The existence of the undead enemies had been warned to her about by one of her spirits; knowledge she had neglected to share. Then there was also the fact the one labeled as Unknown had made his presence known to her before things got chaotic in the village. She should have warned the other mage about him regardless of their distractions. Her fate, whatever it was, may have been prevented if only she knew beforehand. Another set of mistakes to add to the ever growing list. When would it come to an end?

    Samira winched and raised her hand to her forehead as a massive headache began to run its course rather suddenly. She was sitting at a table in the guild library, quite alone and undisturbed until the pain hit as her thoughts drifted off and thought about her last mission again. "Another one, huh? They're starting to get more frequent." A stuffed animal in the form of a lion sat on the table and stared at the summoner rather sternly. The talking toy caused her green gaze to fixate on it and blink. Then she put the pieces together and sighed as she closed the book she had been trying to read. "Another what? And what are you doing in that ridiculous form?"

    The toy lion blinked, causing a magical clinking sound as the lids went over the glass eyes. The toy was none other than Anhur, a being that had once been a spirit but was not as such currently nor had he been one for a long while. She was supposed to somehow restore his status even though really it was proving a little difficult. The two of them just did not get along. "Playing dumb now? I am sure Susano would have some sarcastic lecture, but I don't really care. As for my form, it keeps me hidden in plain sight." Anhur pawed at a candlestick that was on the table while making more inquiries. "Where is the annoying Midi girl? I haven't seen the weird rabbit woman either." The talking ball of fluffy stuffing was correct. Neither Gisen, the guildmaster, or Kaori were currently present in town. They were both off, each doing some matter of importance. That left Samira in charge of the guild and the town's protection as she was the remaining Ace of the guild present. "Gone for now."

    'Great! Lets have a party while they're out!'
    'I'll bring the games!'
    'Oh, hell no! I am not sitting here listening to you all be stupid!'
    'I agree with the serpent for once. Be silent!'
    '...Do we at least get snacks?'
    'Amaterasu, you cannot be serious?'
    'Very well. No snacks. It seems our excited tones are inappropriate. We only add to the headache. However, Samira, is it not ill advised to be in charge in your current state? You could black out at anytime, and if the town were to be threatened... Perhaps you should request the Leader of the Leraci-'

    "Not necessary," Samira rudely interrupted the spirit's voice that sounded in her mind. The headache had already soured her mood, and bringing up she required help in protecting the town just because she normally required protection only darkened it further. By that point in the conversation she had left the library and was walking through the halls of the guild. A few forced smiles and hellos to fellow guild members as she passed by were made, but otherwise she was undisturbed. Most members were busy doing their own thing and knew very well that she desired no special attention regardless of her ranking within the guild. "Nothing noteworthy has happened here since the day a dark guild attacked some time ago. I expect much of the same peace to occur even while both Gisen and Kaori are away." If something she couldn't handle did transpire she could just use the key her friend had given her in order to summon her there. Samira was positive the day would not require such a drastic measure though, and, even if she didn't know it, there was another ally in town.

    Eventually she would find herself exiting the building. A deep breath was taken as she stretched her arms above her and enjoyed the fresh air. She had been inside for way too long. The enjoyment came to an end as a small ten year old looking boy with blonde hair and golden eyes walked up, arms crossed over his chest and looking rather grumpy. Another form Anhur had taken. Surprise was on her face, first by the child form and then again for the fact he was following her to begin with. "Why are you following me? You do not normally care where I go or what I do." The boy's eyebrows twitched. Samira had been correct with her statements; he didn't care or even want to follow her. "If I let anything happen to you while she's gone I'll end up having ribbons in my mane again if I don't die from the hugs of a demon first." The summoner could only sigh and facepalm. Had the ninja leader really found some way to get to him as well? "By the way, don't we know her?" The disguised Anhur pointed over towards the fox eared woman that was standing right by them in front of the entrance. He seemed to recall her from the Bosco incident, but he wasn't sure if it was the same one. He cared little for Samira so it was only natural he cared even less for a stranger.

    "Huh?" Samira blinked and followed his pointing finger, then followed up with a surprised gasp at the fact someone was actually standing right there, and she had not even taken notice. The comical gasp of shock came to an end and the green haired summoner composed herself. Her expression became serious as she took in the fact that Leila was not trapped on some floating continent world or dead, assuming if she could even die. Samira still wondered about that. "Leila?" The woman took a few steps closer to get a better look, not really caring or thinking about whether or not it made the other uncomfortable. Whether or not the other had answered to the name Samira would put on a warm smile. Her conclusion was that it was Leila. The failure of warning the woman that day did not cause harm to her after all! Unfortunately, she could not really conclude just by appearances that the memory of the other was somewhat off, and that not everything was okay.

    "What happened after the timer went off? I was kicked out of the portal and could not get back through. Is Seraph all right? The Catheim? Were you able to make the peace treaty after all of that?" Question after question that would no doubt add more confusion for the already confused mage being bombarded by them. Samira looked down, seeing the colorful canine near the fox girl. The hound had not been with them while on the continent nor during the mission in Bosoc. The wolf cub was completely new to her. "I see you also got a puppy during this past week." Her eyes raised, looking at the other celestial summoner with a raised questioning brow. "Your priorities are strange. You could have sent word on your status before shopping for a pet. I may have accepted the job because I wanted to see more of the continent and get my hands on an artifact, but that does not mean I am so cold hearted that I would not wonder what happened to you and everyone else. I was the only one to actually get out so as far as I knew everyone was either trapped or dead." Her tone of voice had reached the point of nearly scolding Leila. Just how long had she been back in Fiore anyway? Since day one? Had she really wasted all that time researching and finding ways to seek out the other for nothing? Naturally, she knew nothing about Leila's current predicament, and was acting as if the fox mage still had all of the memories of what happened that day.

    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix A-Rank

    A sudden pain jolted through the fox-reared female as she heard footsteps nearby, presumably someone leaving the grandiose structure in front of her to either leave completely or just take in the fresh air. But it was not just pain alone. Grabbing her head for a moment, more of those strange images flashed in her mind, as if they were trying to tell her something, to guide her to a goal unknown. Every single one of them seemed to be a perfectly still freeze frame of that green-haired girl. Some of the images were simple, her figure just standing there and not doing much. Others were more complex as if she was in the middle of a battle with what appeared to be undead creatures. And still, Leila was unable to piece any of it together. As if there was an invisible string tugging her forward in a predetermined direction she followed. And that was how she ended up here, at the doorstep of Lamia Scale. She absolutely hated that feeling. If she had to compare it to something, it would be like being bound and unable to move. She was not in control of her own actions of coming here, as something controlled her subconsciousness. But now that she was actually here, the pain slowly started fading away. At least it did the moment a sound akin to a gasp reached those vixen ears. It was a sound that naturally intrigued her and drew her gaze toward its source.

    And much to her luck, it was that very female she had stuck in her mind all this time. It was so convenient that it actually became rather scary to the Caretaker. Only supporting her feeling of not really being in control, of some higher force doing whatever it wanted with her body without even letting her realize how things really were. Something terrifying. But even that didn’t really prepare her for what would follow. Aside from these images in her head, she had no recollection of the female in front of her. And yet, she knew her name? Not only that, Samira would start walking closer and talking about things that went way by Leila’s head. It all actually intimidated her, especially as the tone of her voice changed. It made the silver-haired girl take several steps back in order to increase the distance again. She would look at Samira, but her eyes were almost like ones of a scared prey in the wilderness and even her animal ears started lowering at the end. “Um… I’m truly sorry if I have wronged you in any way, but… I do not know who you are, miss. Or no, I… you look very familiar to me. But I have no idea who you are, I don’t even know your name. Seraph, Catheim… please, explain!” Somewhat desperate, the girl pleaded. Just by listening to this green-haired summoner, she easily figured out that something clearly happened while she was ‘blacked out’.

    Before she woke up in that cave. Melon on the other hand just kinda observed the whole situation as her head curiously tilted to the side. The wolf did not sense any actual hostility from the people around, though the little child did not smell all that friendly to the wolf. Still, she barked friendly at Samira to greet her back. Not that she really greeted the canine, but that hardly mattered to it. Clearly, the beast was just happy that it could be by her master’s side. And funnily enough, it belonged to Leila even before Samira entered the Floating Continent for the first time. While the expedition with Ikuchi ended rather poorly, Leila later returned to the spot they had to reach and found this little pup there. It was injured, so she naturally helped it and took it back to the camp where the wolf could heal. What she did not expect was for the creature to develop a strong sense of attachment to the Caretaker and remain by her side permanently. Not that it was bad, the cub clearly displayed some magical feats before and would make for a grand companion without a doubt. It was a shame that it could not talk and inform Leila of what happened in the time she no longer remembered. All it could really do was provide the comfort of being very fluffy and huggable if the girl ever felt more alone that she actually was. Which, honestly, seemed to be the case right now.

    Even if Samira would try to say anything, Leila moved her hand toward her with her index finger raised, a signal for the green-haired female to wait a moment. Placing the long and slender fingers of her other hand on her template, Leila would let out few heavy breaths as the last of her headache finally disappeared. Now she was actually able to properly concentrate again for once. Trying to compose herself, she would put on a serious expression as her ocean blue eyes fixated on the girl in front of her. “I am sure this whole situation is confusing for you as well, miss. But it seems that I have lost a portion of my memory, or at least something to that effect. I am sorry to say that I have absolutely no idea who you are, so… if at all possible, please, explain to me what happened! You surely know much more than I do at the moment.” Hoping that she would get at least a sliver of information that she could latch onto, Leila was hopeful. It was possible that even a little bit of info could jump-start her memory again, right? What she did not know was that a much higher force was at play here. And that there was not much time for talk, as countless wings flapped close to the city, surely appeared at the Horizon any moment now. An event that would probably shake the entire town as well as both of these girls and their companions.

    The steps taken back to create distance and even the fearful look Leila had given as a response for her scolding was something Samira found to be peculiar. It wasn't so bad or harsh that it should have warranted such a reaction. Most of the time they came with slaps, so really Leila was getting off easy. The set of words that were spoken by the other woman only brought confusion into the conversation. First set in disbelief, but by the end of it the celestial summoner was wishing her earlier tone had not been so rude. The situation didn't make a whole lot of sense, but there was a sort of desperation within Leila's voice. She never took her as the type to lie either. Unfortunately, Samira was known to be a horrible judge of character in the past. Mistaking someone's personality traits once again would not be all that surprising. A quick glance was given towards the colorful wolf when she barked but otherwise the canine went ignored. Figuring out what exactly was going on was a little more important than focusing on an object of cuteness. Placing a hand on her hip, Samira stared at the girl in front of her with a quizzical expression. "No idea who..." She let her sentence trail off as Leila had raised her finger as a signal to wait. Her green eyes then softened slightly at the sight of the other raising her hand to her head and breathed heavily. A headache she could assume. It was something she herself had grown accustomed to having the past few weeks so it was an easy guess to make. Silent she remained in order to give Leila time to recover and allow the worst of it to pass.

    Leila spoke again, more calmly and composed than before. The silence of Samira continued as her questioning stare grew more intense. The other mage was under some sort of amnesia spell...or something. If the words were taken at face value anyway. She still wasn't sure why Leila had come to Hargeon or even the Lamia Scale castle for that matter. Samira doubted that she had left a strong enough impression that could overwrite amnesia. Yet there Leila was, on the guild's doorstep and demanding answers out of her.

    The more seconds that passed, the more Samira had time to quickly put some of the pieces together. When she had first seen the creepy boy known as Unknown, he had mentioned something about fixing mistakes. The second time he had used a spell that featured a weird clock in its design and operation. It was a little too out there to assume some sort of reset, but as far as she could tell at that moment everything that had happened on the continent was erased from Leila's mind. Samira closed her eyes and sighed. So much for thinking her own failure that day could be overlooked and that Leila's appearance meant that everything was actually fine. It was the exact opposite. She supposed the very least she could do to make some sort of amends was to explain what little she did know. Whether it would actually be of help was another matter entirely.

    Eyes opening, Samira put on a kinder face and had opened her mouth to speak. No words would come from her however due to the opportunity for even a small chat having long passed. First, Anhur, who had done nothing aside from glare at Leila and Melon the entire time, growled. Samira looked over in his direction, taking notice that he was looking ahead and up towards the sky. "Something is on its way here, and I am not sensing that it is here to play."

    "What are you-" Just as she was about to follow his gaze with her own, another member of Lamia Scale ran up towards Samira from another part of the building, shouting her name loudly in the process. When he finally reached the pair of mages and their companions, he was out of breath and panting heavily. He had been at a part of the building where he could see the incoming dragon and its lesser kind and had made it his mission to run around the entire guild hall to find the one that had been left in charge. Of course the day the city would be attacked would be also be the day she was in none of her usual places. "The...there's...in...sky...on...way"

    Samira looked at him rather blankly, not understanding what he was getting at. She did notice he was pointing in the same direction Anhur had been glaring at though. The guild ace turned her head and nearly fell over at the sight. A number of flying creatures were in the sky, passing through Hargeon and heading for the Lamia Scale guild hall. One was quite large and its shape was hard not to recognize as a dragon. "I should have expected this. Anytime I consider things to be going smoothly something has to happen to ruin my day in its entirety." The celestial summoner's eyes narrowed as she saw some of the creatures start to descend at different parts of town. "Anhur," she called to the blonde boy by her side in a more commanding tone.

    "Save your breath. I am going. I like this place even if I dislike you. I'll begin my hunt." The boy ran forward towards the exit of the guild's grounds, transforming into a taller being with lion features as he went. A spear was summoned within his clawed hands and from there he disappeared deeper into town to take care of the town invasion. Samira then turned towards the young man that had ran over to try and warn her of the incoming attack. He had caught his breath by then and, upon seeing he was getting attention from the ace, stood up straight as if he were in the presence of some military leader. The woman blinked, confused by his sudden attentiveness, but shook her head. It was no time to nitpick the quirks of weird people. "I am certain most of our higher ranks are out at the moment. Gather what skilled mages we have present and form into groups. Eliminate what you can. If the dragon lands near any of you, do not approach it." While attacking the beast if it landed before it did any damage seemed like a good idea, it would not be normal members that would be doing it. She wouldn't allow any of them to get into that kind of fight only to end up dead. No, as unfortunate for her as it seemed, that target had to be hers, along with any other drakes that intended to cause harm. The young mage ran into the hall to gather what members he could. Samira watched him go and then focused on Leila.

    "I am sorry, Leila," she said sadly, knowing full well that it probably hurt to wait even longer for answers. "I can give you some of the answers you are looking for, but the time for it is not now." Just as she finished her sentence a group of wyverns with brightly golden scales flew by. Some landed on different parts of the guild castle building and another two landed near the pair of mages. They were the weaker versions of the flying lizard family and really not much to worry about as far as Samira was concerned. With the usual summoning style she and many other summoners were known to do, she took a key from her keychain and used it to open a rift between her own plane of existence and the celestial world. “Open, gate of the Avatar, Goddess of Destruction! Kali!"

    From the portal a thin four armed spirit that some would mistake for a demon exited from the portal. She was one of Samira's more vicious spirits and if she was being used then that meant the summoner was not taking any chances with the current problem. A trait she may or may not have picked up along her mage career while teaming up with some others. Hopefully it would not come back to bite her in the ass like the last time she made a reckless choice while on a mission with a lesser ranked guild mate. Kali, as was the spirit's name, needed no instruction. Her glowing white eyes saw her targets and would have went for them even if she were told not to. She sped towards the wyverns, scimitars and trident in hand. The two lizards had attempted to make an appetizer out of the spirit that had stood in their path of the more fleshy meal tickets, but they had failed. One had ended up having its head sliced off as she evaded its jaws, while the other found itself impaled by her trident and then tossed away as she swung the weapon to rid it of the living attachment.

    Samira looked away from the spirit's actions by that point. Kali was a spirit that enjoyed bloodshed for some reason and so she was sure to make a mess of things. That was not something she was particularly fond of watching. She instead focused on the ones that were on parts of the actual building. "Leila, I know it is not exactly your responsibility to aid in this fight, but I am going to ask for assistance regardless since you are here. Can you use Libra to act as defense? It is more my responsibility to deal with this problem offensively, and I cannot keep my defense spirit here while I go after the actual danger we have heading our way." Due to them not really getting the chance to talk, Samira was completely out of the loop on the fact Leila was unable to access most, if not all, of her magic.

    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix A-Rank

    Confusion on both ends of this conversation was something Leila should have expected. Just about anyone would be taken aback if someone they knew were to just spew information like that at them. As unfortunate as it was, the Caretaker’s problem was not something they could take care of with a single quick conversation. It was something that would require them to sit down somewhere and dive into everything properly later on. Especially with the troubles that were going on right now. As the Lamia Scale mage and the strange child remarked, there was indeed something in the skies. Something fairly big, swarmed by what appeared to be smaller versions of it. The silver-haired girl followed their gazes too, taking few more steps back with her eyes shot wide open as she looked at that almost majestic view in front of them. There was no mistaking it from the creature’s appearance alone, it was a golden dragon. Its form was sleek, yet rugged at the same time and golden flames seemed to surround its focused gaze. This city, it was the creature’s target. However, that was also something that quickly caught the girl’s attention. While her green-haired hope for some explanation started giving orders, the amnesiac female would cover her mouth with the palm of her right hand and narrow her gaze. Things were clearly going through her mind right now as several pieces of information fell together in the depths of her invisible consciousness. The dragon came out of nowhere and there was something about the way it acted in the skies.

    Dragon:


    She was no monster hunter, but even a treasure hunter had to know a good deal about such creatures in case they would run into one in the wilderness. And Leila was a bit more special in that regard, as she kept an entire bestiary of her own, constantly adding information to it from both her own experience and what was publicly known about different species of creatures out there. Dragons themselves were something truly unique, as they were far more intelligent than any other feral animal. In fact, their wisdom usually exceeded one of the humans as well. Not only was it rare to see such a majestic beast with one’s own eyes these days, but it was even more rare to see it being hostile like this. Especially since they all surely knew what a bad idea it was to made humanity into an enemy. This was the main reason why the girl was rather confused at first and questioned if the scene in front of her was truly happening. Or rather, if that was truly a dragon. But there was just no doubt, it really was one. And a golden one at that. A variant of dragon that was perhaps even smarter than the rest and possessed some truly unique traits even among its peers. While it was a joy like no other to see something like this so close by, now was probably not the right time to be drooling over the enemy. Though that was a bad habit of Leila’s, who often did not take combat all that seriously when the enemy was interesting enough. Or at least that was the version of her self she now remembered.

    Turning around again, she saw Kali, the summoned spirit who had gone ahead and started attacking some of the wyverns that apparently joined the giant swarm. At that sight, Leila’s heart nearly stopped as she threw her hand out toward Samira in a rather desperate-like gesture. “You… uh… that person said Samira? Miss Samira, please, try to limit the actions of your spirit! Killing wyverns is fine, but tell it not to damage the lesser drakes too much! As things are right now, we have absolutely no hope of winning unless heavy reinforcements arrive. Though I don’t see that happening in time. But there is something wrong with this dragon. Under normal circumstances, it would never attack a human settlement like this. And its movements, they were imperfect. I think the creature is engulfed in rage because something happened to it. If I were to make a guess, I’d wager that some people from this town, or perhaps mercenaries, found the dragon’s nest somewhere in the nearby area and did something to it. Something like breaking the eggs or slaughtering the freshly hatched golden dragons for their scales… and it made the mother be like this. If we continue on killing the drakes, we might cause permanent damage! If we want to win, we must lead it away from this town first! My magic is closely tied to nature and I might be able to pacify it if we restrain it for a little bit. But that will require some space.

    Explaining all of that in a rather hurried voice, she tried to give every single observation she made to Samira to ensure that they could do something about this. With the primordial seal in effect, she herself was unable to use the core spells of her own magic and that meant one less powerful mage that could combat a dragon. Not to mention that its scales were probably far too thick for anyone here to actually pierce. Still, despite the seal, she would try to also go along with Samira’s request. Summoning a spirit was something she did not try until now, as she didn’t have any need to. Quickly moving her hand into one of the inner pockets of her loose top, she would produce the familiar golden key and point it right ahead as magical energy started flowing through it. Thankfully, this spirit was part of Leila for a long time now, as she obtained her even way before her first sacrifice. As such, she had no missing memories if this spirit and knew how to summon her perfectly well. It would probably not add much to their situation if the other girl’s request to summon a Zodiac spirit were met with yet another questioning gaze of a girl who had no idea what was happening. In any case, the space in front of her started warping ever so slightly as the key itself started shining a brilliant and almost blinding gold, probably causing anyone who was looking in her direction to turn away for the following few moments.

    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!

    While for few seconds the summoning looked successful, that illusion was quickly shattered. The white seal appeared on Leila’s body once again and with searing pain, sent the female to her knees as the slowly forming summoning circle shattered into pieces. Thankfully, the key itself remained intact and could be hidden within the safety of the girl’s attire once more after she let out a disappointed sigh. “So much for that… not only am I locked out of the Gardens themselves, but the Celestium as well. Seems like the only magic I have right now is what is left in my physical body… hopefully, that will be enough to keep me alive. I’m sorry, Miss Samira. It seems like I cannot summon my spirits because of a seal on my body. But that doesn’t mean I’m powerless. If at all possible, let us focus on letting the drakes feel some pain. Once injured, provided it's not lethal, they will retreat to the big one. That way, we can mostly ensure the safety of the innocent people in this city. Then… I guess we’ll have to ride the mama right out of here!” Strangely enough, her words were accompanied by a bright smile. They might have been thrown into an impossibly dangerous and difficult situation, but that was always most fun in the line of wizard work! Forcing yourself past all of your limits and never giving up, only moving forward. That was the old Leila with her bright spirit shining as brightly as a beacon!

    And Melon, despite being somewhat ignored the entire time, would not back down from this challenge either. The pup was willing to jump into the pits of hell itself for its master and it was ready to show what species were more dominant to the dragons too. Taking in a deep breath, Leila would gently place her palm onto the sheath with a mechanical blade inside. It was a weapon she found in the cave where she awoke after she was sent back in time. It was not hers and when she went to Jiyu was the first time she even used it. But strangely… it felt extremely natural for her to have this weapon. Little did she know that it was the Moonlight’s Grace after getting some upgrades, a weapon forged for her ‘sister’. Due to the erasure of memories, she had no recollection of Noheme right now, so it was only natural she would not recognize the blade at all. It was quite funny, actually. Leila and Noheme already went on a journey together with this weapon where they fought a dragon much like right now. Though back then, it was an Abyssal dragon artificially created by the magic of darkness. This one was a real deal. But they would still prevail all the same. Why? Because the fate of this entire town was resting in their hands! And Leila would not go ahead and disappoint them, or Samira and the rest of the mages who were helping to the best of their abilities!

    Melon went ahead and with few barks at its owner ran forward to where a couple of drakes started descending. Once right in front of them, the pup would stop and suddenly start growing in size. The colors of its fur were probably enough of a giveaway that the creature was rather magical, and now it was proving it with its abilities. With a loud howl, the ground beneath it would shatter as several thick vines shot out and flew directly at the drakes. Unable do dodge at that speed, nature’s fingers would start coiling around them and then forcefully slam them against the hard ground. That was what Leila talked about. Damage heavy enough for the creatures to feel enough pain to make them want to retreat, but not actually killing them. Of course, she could not stop Samira or anyone else from taking their lives. But her somewhat pacifistic nature always made itself known. She did not want to kill something as beautiful as this and she would do everything she could in order to end this without spilling all the blood. That was just her way of doing things. Quickly moving into a sprint, she would catch up to the wolf and hop onto its back, as Melon was about as big as a regular horse right now. Not only that, a pair of wings made out of giant rose petals suddenly formed from the creature’s back as the two of them took into the skies and into the swarm of the other flying creatures.

    Since she was unable to properly use her magic, Leila had to rely on others much more than any other time. Thankfully, her skills with weapons and even hand to hand combat were rather good too. She always made sure to be a versatile mage who could tackle just about any situation she could find herself in. While all mostly just to ensure her own survival, it was coming in awfully handy right now too. She just hoped that Samira would be okay on the ground for now. Though it should not be too much of a problem to take her along due to Melon’s adjustable size. In fact, realizing this, they would turn 180 degrees and start heading toward the ground again, right to where the green-haired girl stood. Though they did take down one of the drakes along the way, as Leila made a little hop and planted her soles on Melon’s back, which allowed her to jump off and aim her still sheathed blade at a nearby drake, bonking its head pretty harshly and forcing it to retreat. The wolf then just made sure to fly below its master and catch Leila before she would hit the ground. With that little spectacle, they would land in front of Samira and Leila chuckled. “I don’t really have a good strategy for this, but if you or any one of your spirits want a little ride, feel free to hop on!

    The outburst regarding Kali killing the wyverns had made Samira stare awkwardly at Leila. A complete and total opposite reaction of some other people she knew. It was peculiar, but even more strange to her was how she disagreed with parts of it the explanation. Winning would indeed prove to be difficult, and she would agree with dragons not normally attacking towns or cities randomly. That was the problem. If Leila was correct that the creature was in a state of rage then there would be no stopping it peacefully, especially if it were for the reason used as an example. Permanent damage had already been done if someone had attacked a nest that belonged to the golden dragon. Sometime ago she had been told a story from one that featured the ending of an entire royal city being destroyed because a human child he had raised was killed by those that ruled it. While it was probably ill advised to say all dragons were similar in nature, the evidence of one attacking was enough for Samira to conclude that the dragon meant to bring an end to Hargeon and the people living within it. Still, the other mage was certainly correct with one thing regardless of how they dealt with the oversized reptile; they needed to get it out of the town before it could do too much damage and also allow space for them to go all out as well. "Leila, while I find your reasoning logical to some extent, I cannot guarantee I can follow through with your suggestion. I have had experience with their kind before, and it is nearly impossible to stop them if they truly are angered to a point that they are attacking. The peaceful ending you want may not be what comes to pass." The fox-eared mage may have found the creatures fascinating, and truthfully, so did Samira at one point. That changed some time ago, and she had acquired more of a dislike for them. It would not bother her in the least if she had to fight it, and she would die trying if necessary in order to protect the town.

    Samira stood there patiently while watching Leila summon Libra. She wanted to be sure the guild was covered before she left it to go lure the flying reptile away from town. The woman had proven capable in the past so it stood to reason she could help defend. Unfortunately, the primary celestial summoner would be left disappointed, and more confused. The summoning had failed, even though it looked like it was going to work. The key glowed and the space in front of it had warped slightly. A white magic seal that seemed to bring pain to the mage had appeared, and the summoning circle shattered as a further result. The question of whether she was all right of not was about to be asked when she was interrupted by a short explanation. Samira fought the urge to sigh. No extra spirits were going to be on their side then. That meant the power she had displayed on the continent was also out of the question. At the very least she knew Leila was capable of fighting without her magic or spirits, and with the coloring, the wolf was not normal and so likely was powerful in its own right. She was not an ally that would be turned down.

    Samira blinked as the other had finished her words. Her mouth opened to speak, but no vocal words came out; she was left speechless for a moment. The wide smile of the other was strange considering what was going on around them, but refreshing. A real optimist. She couldn't remember Leila ever producing such a grin the last two times she had seen her. "Do not apologize. You may not remember me, but I have seen you fight before. You are capable even without your spirits, unlike myself. I tend to be envious of summoners like you." No more words were said as she watched the other mage and her wolf take off to deal with some of the drakes. Some had been damaged enough to retreat, but that did not mean they would not return.

    Kali, having finished taking out some of the wyverns that had landed on the castle, approached her summoner with a scowl on her face. "I can sense your conflict. Do not tell me you are actually considering her words. You cannot win this by showing mercy. The enemy will show you none, you know this. You have lived it. Why do I have to lecture you as if you were a child? That is not my role!"

    'You're right, Kali. That's my role. Now stop! Your lecture voice irritates me, and mine is just superior anyway.'
    'Yours sucks too, dumbass! I can't believe she has to be lectured in the first place. Just wing it. Kill a few, spare a few. I call it thinning the numbers. Clearly no one has done an extermination in a while.'
    'Now, Kuku, shouldn't you be wanting to save them? You're practically related.'
    'Please, I am a flying giant serpent. Those are dragons. Damn arrogant things that need to be purged if you ask me.'
    'Which you clearly are not, huh? Great. Getting to love these newer spirits more every day. I do agree though. Nothing more than troublesome beasts. A member of a monster hunting guild should be slaying them; not befriending them.'
    'Your bias is showing, brother. Please speak no more of it for it is not the time nor place. My recommendation is to put the smaller ones in a vulnerable state, but very much alive. If the bigger one cannot be convinced to retreat and must be ended then we will eliminate it, followed by the smaller ones that would retaliate afterwards. There is nothing wrong with attempting both possible strategies. It just makes more sense to try the nicer approach first.'

    Samira listened to the mental conversation and considered the options. There were many spirits in her arsenal that actually could handle the smaller drakes without doing much harm. Leila and her wolf mount returned, landing in front of her with a chuckle. Weird, the other seemed to be having a little bit too much fun, that or she was just incapable of letting her good mood get ruined. She could not really return the small laughter with one of her own or even a smile. Too much was on her shoulders at that point, and she barely even had a full plan.

    It was then several shields and barriers materialized around the Lamia Scale castle, created and placed by several mages that had left the building and taken spots all around to help out with the defense of the guild hall and town. "Don't worry, Samira! We got things covered here!" Said one before going to join in. Another group left the building and made way for the exit. While they passed by, one stopped for a moment in order to explain to the Ace what they were doing. "We're heading out and going to find who we can and bring them here. At this point it's the safest place to be. We'll take out what we can on the way so just worry about the big one on the way!" Samira gave a nod, acknowledging and believing their volunteered tasks were for the best. Anhur was also out there somewhere so there was little to be concerned about if all went as planned. Not to mention her own plan would aid with the smaller drakes. The bigger one she was still pondering over options that didn't result in a long battle.

    "This is a foolish endeavor. I am leaving," said Kali in an annoyed tone before poofing into red colored particles. Samira made no comment towards the spirit. She didn't require Kali anymore, and she doubted the spirit would want to ride the colorful wolf and take the fight to the air. "I may have a strategy that will work to clear the skies of the smaller ones. The actual dragon we will have to get closer and see for ourselves what is going on with it before we can do anything if we are to follow your way of not fighting it outright. As for the ride...," Samira tapped her cheek with her index finger as she thought about it and hummed. If she was going to do what she wanted it would be rather unfortunate for her spirit to fall to the ground the moment he landed. "Actually, I do not need a ride myself, but once we are over the central part of town I will be summoning a spirit. The effect I require only happens when his portal is generated and well...he cannot fly. I am going to need you to catch him if you do not mind. He may be incapable of dying, but I would rather not bring him discomfort regardless."

    Assuming Leila would understand her request and watch out for it, Samira would grab her keys and from it pull another key and hold it out. “Open, gate of the Avatar, God of Love! Cupid!” A small pink portal generated above the summoner as the key unlocked it, and a small boy with small white fluffy wings flew out. A pair of small wings also appeared on Samira's back as an added effect of his presence, indicating why she did not need a ride herself. Her outfit then changed to a red and white kimono as she took on the powers of Susano, a wind spirit. 'Oh joy, she decided to have that weird fusion with me now. Just my luck. You better not make me have to go into lecture mode during this.' She gave a nod towards Leila if she were still there, and took to the air, flying towards the central point of town.

    On the way a few drakes had crossed their path, but Samira did not need to deal with them herself. Cupid was a spirit that matched Leila's request of not harming the drakes; he had methods to stop them that were not harmful or would get them killed. The fearful spirit's eyes were wide and he stuttered a bit as he asked if he was really supposed to deal with them. Well, of course the answer was yes. The poor thing nearly dropped his bow! He managed to hold it properly and take aim, however. His arrow was not pointed but in the shape of a heart. As he pulled back and took aim, several more arrows appeared in the air beside him. He released his grip on the arrow, and it went sailing through the air and bounced off one of the drake's heads and leaving a sort of pink mystical smoke that released on impact. The other generated arrows did the same with their targets. The golden drakes appeared to be confused at first, but then became calm as the magic smoke soothed their anger. They turned and retreated, forgetting for the moment why they were even flying above the town.

    The center of town had been reached, and Samira halted her flying progress, Cupid hovering beside her with a worried expression considering the amount of flying reptiles around them. "If there is any delay with her catching him, do your best to slow his descent, she told the small spirit before removing another key had been taken from her keychain. “Open, gate of the Avatar, Cernunnos, The Horned God!” With the call, a larger green portal appeared in the air. From it many types of flowers and plants began to fall from it; all of them glowing with a magic mist and releasing green particles. Naturally, as the satyr spirit appeared, he began to fall due to his lack of wings and flight abilities. It would be up to Leila to catch him by that point if she was paying attention or not distracted. If she was delayed for any reason, Cupid would grab onto his horns and comically flap his wings rapidly as he pulled up enough to slow the fall until Cernunnos reached the ground.

    Now for the last part of the plan, which was using the wind magic she now had thanks to Susano. The air around Samira began to rush in random directions, causing a strong wind that took hold of the flowers and particles and blew them all over the town. As the flowers and particles reached each drake and wyvern that was in town, the magic they contained made the golden creatures become drowsy. Eventually they would all become weak and very tired, barely able to even keep in the air. They began to slowly descend, and upon reaching the ground, fell asleep where they landed. Smaller annoying dragon problem solved; one bigger one left. It was not going to be as easy to deal with that much was for certain.

    If Leila was still nearby, Samira would fly towards her and join her. "I do not suppose you have come up with a sort of plan as of yet to pacify the dragon, do you? The strategy I just used is for weaker creatures. I do not think a creature such as that will fall to their power. It certainly doesn't work on the ones I have met thus far aside from Chronos. If we have to stop time though then that would mean we have begun to run out of options and are desperate. I would resort to my offensive spirits by that point."

    The dragon was getting closer to the town. Luring it out would be easy considering they were flying targets right in its path. From there though, well, things were going to get difficult.

    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix A-Rank

    Samira was most certainly right in saying that dealing with this creature in a more peaceful manner was probably not going to happen. However, it was still worth a shot to Leila. It was her duty as a mage to protect the people of this town from harm’s way and that meant getting rid of the dragon one way or another. Killing it, despite the creature’s power, was perhaps the most simple and easy solution to such problem. However, she also saw this as a chance, all the more so when she heard the green-haired girl’s words. A chance to show that sometimes, miracles could happen. Going against all the odds was always ill-advised and for a very good reason. But that was not quite the point right now. To put it simply, the Eden’s Caretaker wanted to deal with everything in her own way. She was sick of looking at some of the other legal mages that would go around slaughtering those they deemed dark or dangerous as if their lives meant nothing. She adored humans, but this was one of the greatest flaws they possessed and she despised. The free will to choose, in a sense. For as long as that will exist, they will always go against one another and try to rise to the top while absentmindedly destroying those beneath them. And she couldn’t blame them for it all, either. Which was why she wanted to show them that peace could exist, and even a horrid situation like this one could be resolved without killing.

    And so she would take a good look at Samira and smile at her as cheerfully as she possibly could in the given situation. “I know. It truly may not be what comes to pass. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to at least try and give it my best shot, so that I don’t have any regrets later on, asking myself all the possible what ifs.” She had found herself pondering that many times in the past, over and over again. She would break herself over the idea that she could have done something a little bit better if only she had tried something or tried a little harder. It was easy to delve into a mindset like that. But extremely hard to get back out of it once it settled in. While the female always looked fondly to her past memories, she also tried to be better than back then. She did not wish to fall into that darkness one more time, though it was inevitable in the future. Everyone makes mistakes, herself included. She knew she would slip up eventually. And when that happens, she will deal with it the best she can, hopefully with the help of her friends. Right now was a time to make sure that such situation does not come to pass anytime soon! Because she decided to fight on even without her magic and spirits. She was not going to give up even in the face of this impossible danger.

    Something that Samira saw and did not voice any complaints. So after landing in front of the grand Guild Hall and offering her a ride, Leila listened to what her partner had to say and would smile as she got a much different impression all of a sudden. Because she adored humans, she wanted to learn as much about them as she possibly could. And if there was something that she figured out about them after all this time, it was that they could evolve faster than any other being in this world. They were truly the ones with limitless potential and would follow others with ideals that they found compelling. Was that a good or bad thing? Well, right now it meant that they would indeed give it all a shot, try to end this without the unnecessary bloodshed. And that Leila could get behind no problem! Taking a moment to suddenly hop from her mount, she would suddenly take several steps toward her green-haired accomplice and stop just the right distance to not be breaking any personal space as she looked the other female right into the eyes. She would not be grinning now. Rather than that, her expression was one of a smile that said she was confident, yet serious at the same time. Despite the fact that she could chuckle and laugh right now with all of this going down, it did not mean she was underestimating their situation.

    Quite the opposite, actually. With a nod to confirm the plan about catching the said spirit, Leila would suddenly extend her hand and firmly plant it on Samira’s shoulder. It might have been something the other mage did not expect and did not appreciate if she didn’t wish to get that close to someone she barely knew, but it was also a gesture that made their contact all the more personal and meaningful. At least to the Caretaker anyway, as she felt this was just the right thing to do at this current moment in time. “I know you have your worries. I have some as well. And I saw that spirit which you first summoned disappear. Always listen to your friends and take their words into consideration. But in the end, you should always follow your own heart and do what you feel is the right thing to do. I have found that to be the best thing to help me smile even in situations like this. And pardon me if this sounds like a boring and unnecessary lecture in the middle of a critical situation, but… smiling gives others hope, I believe. Those who are suffering and can only see dark might be inspired by it. Because smiling at them is like saying ‘everything will be okay’. I don’t know how to describe it any better, and this might not make any sense… but I believe we will get through this just fine. And I will have your back through this whole ordeal!

    Letting go, the female would hop onto the wolf’s back once more with a decisive motion. For some reason, she felt like she could not really be defeated right now. A dangerous way of thinking that could get her killed in no time. But it was slightly different right now. She had no idea why she felt the need to do what she just did with Samira, as the other girl clearly had her own conviction and her heart was in the right place, else she would not care about this strategy and would have her spirit continue with the slaughter. Perhaps it was just something that happened once again because of Leila’s adoration for humans and her desire to help them? It was certainly possible. Not only that, this was perhaps the first time she almost felt like a teacher, too. She never had any apprentices despite being a Guild Ace and a fairly known mage as a Rising Star, but that was somewhat beside the point right now. She was an immortal creature, but if she perished in this fight, then she would at least go happy. She did not remember anything of this green-haired girl, but she already knew that she was a good human being that deserved all the praise in this world. So now, she had to catch up to that! She had to show them all what she was capable of herself!

    After she watched the summoning take place, as well as the celestial dress fusion afterward, she would give out a thumbs up to start the plan and have Melon take to the skies in a powerful motion, creating a small shockwave that damaged the floor beneath them as they took off. Much like her comrade, this due was assaulted by a number of drakes on the way as well. Though she did not have an effective way of dealing with them right away, so she just held tight onto her dear companion as the wolf started showcasing its flying abilities. Speeding up to avoid the dives and fireballs fired by the golden beasts and even ‘hopping’ off of some of them when they got too close. It was almost as if the wolf was playing. And there was a pretty good chance it actually was, considering it was still just a pup that only had the ability to grow this size. As long as they would not go down, it was fine how it saw this situation. All they had to do was get to the center of the town just like Samira. And while Leila felt rather nauseous and like throwing up afterward, they did it without too much trouble. At the end of the day, their relationship was still somewhat new as well, so it would take a bit more time before the girl would get fully used to the way this wolf moved in the air sometimes.

    She was not about to betray a word given to someone, so her eyes rested firmly on the now winged mage as she started yet another summoning. It was impressive to watch, someone who was actually specialized in this kind of magic. Leila never truly relied on her spirits due to a fairly simple reason. She was subconsciously afraid of them. Now, most of them were basically her family. But there was a deep-running wound inside of her psyche that would just not go away that easily. When she first separated from Aurora, she gained a physical body that was actually like the one of a human. So until she grew much more powerful, she had a lineage that was present in Earthland. A lineage of the dark angel. It was a power that was passed down those who were somehow connected to a group of mages that managed to seal away a powerful fallen angel. In other words, it was a power that allowed Leila to summon such being. But the Angel was to be controlled forcefully and its mind restrained as much as possible in order to prevent it going berserk and killing the mage. So of course, there was once a moment where the Angel did nearly kill Leila before she even learned of her own immortality. It was a scarring moment, to say the least. Ever since then, she had a slight problem trusting her summons, even if they were closer to her than anyone else in the world.

    But she shook that thought rather quickly, as she saw the green portal appearing. Tapping Melon on the back, they would quickly fly under it in an attempt to catch the spirit that fell out. Sure enough, they managed it just fine. Thought the moment this half man, half goat spirit hit Melon, they would lose a considerable amount of altitude. “Whoa, whoa! Let’s try to not break my companion’s back, yes?” She would just kinda toss her words at the spirit but did not mean them in a harmful, or any other way. Just a natural reaction that followed after the sad whimpers from the wolf. But at least the spirit was okay, so he didn’t have to be afraid of crashing into the ground. Something that would be surely a rather unpleasant experience even for a being like that. Looking back up, she would see Samira using the magic of one of her spirits to spread the petals all around the town and essentially deal with the ‘mob’ enemies that were in their way. “Clever~” Leila would commend this plan before the other girl moved over. All of them reunited and listening to what she had to say, the Caretaker smiled again. “Afraid that bringing out offensive spirits would not make that much difference anymore. It’s most likely they would not even pierce that thing’s scales. And if they somehow did, it would not be much more than just a scratch. As for a plan, I do-

    The silver-haired maiden quickly shut her mouth as her eyes widened. While the big dragon was a fair distance away from them still, it caught the two girls in its sight as individuals that were causing trouble for all the other drakes and wyverns. Opening its mouth, a sudden beam of golden flames shot out at a rather high speed, aimed right at the two of them. Almost instinctively, Leila would lean toward Samira and grab her hand, forcefully tugging her into an embrace as a black magical energy started surrounding them. Everything suddenly became pitch black and all that could be heard was a sound akin to a glass being hit, but not completely shattering. In only a few seconds, the world would start being visible again as the intense light from the beam faded away. What happened was Leila activating an ability of her armor, which encased them all in a protective bubble of shadow magic. It protected them from the attack, though the shield itself now had cracks all over. The shadowed surface also inverted the light created by the flames, engulfing them in complete darkness for those few seconds and preventing them from going blind just by looking at the attack. Rather awkwardly, Leila let go of Samira so that she would be sitting on her lap any longer than she had to. Looking behind them also revealed that the beam tore through the clouds and created a rather large explosion miles away, thankfully in the middle of the skies.

    Alright, time to not get directly hit by that, ever. Um… as I was saying, I might just have something! I don’t really know how, but… try to keep me alive?” And with that, she would reach for the mechanical blade that was on her back. But instead of pulling out the main blade, she just took out a much smaller survival knife. Tossing it in the dragon’s direction, she would suddenly disappear. At this point, she just hoped that Samira and Melon would be able to do something to maybe restrain the Golden Dragon for a bit, or limit its thrashing in any capacity. Because that knife had a warp link. Being tossed at the dragon and bouncing off its scales, it allowed Leila to teleport directly to its side and then hop up on its back. With its sheer size, it didn’t even notice. At least until the moment she started running forward and jumped on top of its head, suddenly slamming her palm on its scales. The white seal would form on her body again and start burning, but she just had to suffer through it if they ever wanted to succeed. “Listen to my words! There is no need for bloodshed! This anger inside of you, let go of it and be free! Be free of its grasp and find your inner peace!

    While the words themselves might not have sounded all too convincing, they basically meant nothing in the first place. A green ghastly aura was running around Leila’s hand as it was placed on the dragon, her teeth grinding against each other as her skin started becoming visibly burned from the primordial seal. She wasn’t even using a proper spell but something that was always a passive part of her. It showcased that trying to use proper magic would probably not end well for her in this current state. But as the ability worked its magic, a low humming sound could be heard as that same green aura started forming around the entirety of the dragon’s body. For few seconds, it indeed started to calm down. But then, just as she assumed, it started thrashing around and fly around in chaotic patterns. In a state like that, there was no way the girl could be still enough to continue calming it down. She required some help, any at all. “It will probably take a few attempts, but its working! I can remove its anger piece by piece! Just… gotta… stay still for a second!” Fighting to just keep her spot on the dragon’s head without falling off and splattering on the ground that was a rather fair distance below them, there was not much Leila herself could do from her position aside from actually trying to pacify the dragon. Something that would probably be much, much easier if she could use her magic as much as she wanted.

    Non-template Version:
    Samira was most certainly right in saying that dealing with this creature in a more peaceful manner was probably not going to happen. However, it was still worth a shot to Leila. It was her duty as a mage to protect the people of this town from harm’s way and that meant getting rid of the dragon one way or another. Killing it, despite the creature’s power, was perhaps the most simple and easy solution to such problem. However, she also saw this as a chance, all the more so when she heard the green-haired girl’s words. A chance to show that sometimes, miracles could happen. Going against all the odds was always ill-advised and for a very good reason. But that was not quite the point right now. To put it simply, the Eden’s Caretaker wanted to deal with everything in her own way. She was sick of looking at some of the other legal mages that would go around slaughtering those they deemed dark or dangerous as if their lives meant nothing. She adored humans, but this was one of the greatest flaws they possessed and she despised. The free will to choose, in a sense. For as long as that will exist, they will always go against one another and try to rise to the top while absentmindedly destroying those beneath them. And she couldn’t blame them for it all, either. Which was why she wanted to show them that peace could exist, and even a horrid situation like this one could be resolved without killing.

    And so she would take a good look at Samira and smile at her as cheerfully as she possibly could in the given situation. “I know. It truly may not be what comes to pass. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to at least try and give it my best shot, so that I don’t have any regrets later on, asking myself all the possible what ifs.” She had found herself pondering that many times in the past, over and over again. She would break herself over the idea that she could have done something a little bit better if only she had tried something or tried a little harder. It was easy to delve into a mindset like that. But extremely hard to get back out of it once it settled in. While the female always looked fondly to her past memories, she also tried to be better than back then. She did not wish to fall into that darkness one more time, though it was inevitable in the future. Everyone makes mistakes, herself included. She knew she would slip up eventually. And when that happens, she will deal with it the best she can, hopefully with the help of her friends. Right now was a time to make sure that such situation does not come to pass anytime soon! Because she decided to fight on even without her magic and spirits. She was not going to give up even in the face of this impossible danger.

    Something that Samira saw and did not voice any complaints. So after landing in front of the grand Guild Hall and offering her a ride, Leila listened to what her partner had to say and would smile as she got a much different impression all of a sudden. Because she adored humans, she wanted to learn as much about them as she possibly could. And if there was something that she figured out about them after all this time, it was that they could evolve faster than any other being in this world. They were truly the ones with limitless potential and would follow others with ideals that they found compelling. Was that a good or bad thing? Well, right now it meant that they would indeed give it all a shot, try to end this without the unnecessary bloodshed. And that Leila could get behind no problem! Taking a moment to suddenly hop from her mount, she would suddenly take several steps toward her green-haired accomplice and stop just the right distance to not be breaking any personal space as she looked the other female right into the eyes. She would not be grinning now. Rather than that, her expression was one of a smile that said she was confident, yet serious at the same time. Despite the fact that she could chuckle and laugh right now with all of this going down, it did not mean she was underestimating their situation.

    Quite the opposite, actually. With a nod to confirm the plan about catching the said spirit, Leila would suddenly extend her hand and firmly plant it on Samira’s shoulder. It might have been something the other mage did not expect and did not appreciate if she didn’t wish to get that close to someone she barely knew, but it was also a gesture that made their contact all the more personal and meaningful. At least to the Caretaker anyway, as she felt this was just the right thing to do at this current moment in time. “I know you have your worries. I have some as well. And I saw that spirit which you first summoned disappear. Always listen to your friends and take their words into consideration. But in the end, you should always follow your own heart and do what you feel is the right thing to do. I have found that to be the best thing to help me smile even in situations like this. And pardon me if this sounds like a boring and unnecessary lecture in the middle of a critical situation, but… smiling gives others hope, I believe. Those who are suffering and can only see dark might be inspired by it. Because smiling at them is like saying ‘everything will be okay’. I don’t know how to describe it any better, and this might not make any sense… but I believe we will get through this just fine. And I will have your back through this whole ordeal!

    Letting go, the female would hop onto the wolf’s back once more with a decisive motion. For some reason, she felt like she could not really be defeated right now. A dangerous way of thinking that could get her killed in no time. But it was slightly different right now. She had no idea why she felt the need to do what she just did with Samira, as the other girl clearly had her own conviction and her heart was in the right place, else she would not care about this strategy and would have her spirit continue with the slaughter. Perhaps it was just something that happened once again because of Leila’s adoration for humans and her desire to help them? It was certainly possible. Not only that, this was perhaps the first time she almost felt like a teacher, too. She never had any apprentices despite being a Guild Ace and a fairly known mage as a Rising Star, but that was somewhat beside the point right now. She was an immortal creature, but if she perished in this fight, then she would at least go happy. She did not remember anything of this green-haired girl, but she already knew that she was a good human being that deserved all the praise in this world. So now, she had to catch up to that! She had to show them all what she was capable of herself!

    After she watched the summoning take place, as well as the celestial dress fusion afterward, she would give out a thumbs up to start the plan and have Melon take to the skies in a powerful motion, creating a small shockwave that damaged the floor beneath them as they took off. Much like her comrade, this due was assaulted by a number of drakes on the way as well. Though she did not have an effective way of dealing with them right away, so she just held tight onto her dear companion as the wolf started showcasing its flying abilities. Speeding up to avoid the dives and fireballs fired by the golden beasts and even ‘hopping’ off of some of them when they got too close. It was almost as if the wolf was playing. And there was a pretty good chance it actually was, considering it was still just a pup that only had the ability to grow this size. As long as they would not go down, it was fine how it saw this situation. All they had to do was get to the center of the town just like Samira. And while Leila felt rather nauseous and like throwing up afterward, they did it without too much trouble. At the end of the day, their relationship was still somewhat new as well, so it would take a bit more time before the girl would get fully used to the way this wolf moved in the air sometimes.

    She was not about to betray a word given to someone, so her eyes rested firmly on the now winged mage as she started yet another summoning.

    Alright, time to not get directly hit by that, ever. Um… as I was saying, I might just have something! I don’t really know how, but… try to keep me alive?” And with that, she would reach for the mechanical blade that was on her back. But instead of pulling out the main blade, she just took out a much smaller survival knife. Tossing it in the dragon’s direction, she would suddenly disappear. At this point, she just hoped that Samira and Melon would be able to do something to maybe restrain the Golden Dragon for a bit, or limit its thrashing in any capacity.

Something that would probably be much, much easier if she could use her magic as much as she wanted.

    Getting lectures time and time again from her spirits Samira had grown accustomed to. There were even close allies that had done the same thing time and time again. To get one from a woman she barely knew gave her a reason to pause her thoughts and stare awkwardly. Did she really seem so lost that even strangers felt the need to give her advice? There was no negative reaction towards the other mage's action of placing her hand on her shoulder; Samira had allowed it to remain as she concentrated on listening to the words spoken to her. Rather than being a sequence of sentences that were harshly blunt and made her feel like an idiot, the lecture she was receiving at that moment was kind and warm. Samira was bewildered by them at first and was left speechless. The Leila she had known back in Bosco and the Floating Continent did not give off such a positive and confident aura. The version she had known was more of a shadow to the one standing before her currently. A weaker willed one that had regrets and negativity. A smile formed on Samira's face as she nodded her head. "I appreciate it, Leila. Thank you for standing by me and offering your thoughts." She felt reassured and less worried, and was thankful for the words. Some may consider themselves as beings that had nothing left to learn, but Samira knew her flaws. She was only human despite her power to summon very powerful spirit that others would never be able to control, and she often made mistakes. There was much to learn, and she would not mock the experiences or the wisdom of others if they took the time to try and teach her. At least, not the ones that sounded reasonable. Her mind did want to still proceed with caution, however. Not everything could be handled with hope alone. Reality could be cruel.

    The satyr spirit, Cernunnos, was thankfully caught by the colorful wolf. He heard the creature's whimpers, as well as the words spoken by the woman that was also riding on its back. Cernunnos understood the reaction and showed no signs of agitation towards them. He was one of Samira's more calmer spirits, and it took a great deal of effort to get him angry. His summoner had yet to see him in a rage or even hear him speak. His clawed hand patted the shoulder of the mage that owned the wolf in understanding and to show his gratitude. Falling all the way to the ground would have been most unfortunate even for a spirit. The glowing green gaze he had then looked up to watch the progress of Samira's plan. As he watched the golden drakes descend and fall into a deep slumber he gave a nod and made a sort of gruff sound. The plan had worked. There was now no reason for him to remain since his part had concluded, and there should not have been any more of the flying reptiles coming their way. While he was quite capable of fighting and even had more power to offer, it would go against their plan of taking a more peaceful approach. If attacking was required, Samira had stronger spirits for the job. Green particles erupted from his position as Cernunnos disappeared and returned to the celestial realm. No longer would Melon have to suffer carrying him around as well.

    "Hmm," Samira hummed but said nothing more in regards to using offensive spirits. The other mage was probably right when it came to the strength of a dragon's scales. However, their kind had been dealt with before in times past. Not every single one had to of only been killed off by those that possessed dragon slayer magic. There was a certain weakness the summoner logically thought of. If the outside was that well protected then that meant attacking the inside where it was likely soft and fleshy even on a strong and magical creature such as the golden dragon that now stood as an obstacle. It was a back up thought in the back of her mind. For now, she would trust that Leila had a decent plan that would work much like hers did with the smaller drakes. Before the fox eared mage could go into detail, the large dragon made an attack against them. "Ahhh! Sam-Sam, watch out!" Cupid shouted from where he was. His small arms flailed about as he made a quick effort to move out of the way from the golden flames headed their way. He wasn't exactly fast or strong enough to act as a sort of defense against such an attack.

    Samira had been about to make her own effort to avoid the attack, although it would have been very difficult if not entirely impossible to do so unscathed. She was saved though as Leila had grabbed her hand and pulled her in. A quick gasp of surprise was let out during the action, but Samira soon regained her senses as a sort of black bubble formed around the pair and wolf. She thought nothing of the embrace as she had been through such acts of protection before. Sadly, it was common for her to require it, but at the very least it would not feel awkward for her. The shadow shield had protected them, but barely. Cracks had formed along its surface, and as Samira turned around to glance over where the attack was going, her eyes widened as a large explosion took place in the distance. She then cringed as she pictured what would have happened if not for the defensive ability used by Leila. They were going to be in trouble if that attack was made again when they were not prepared for it. "Agreed," the summoner stated calmly even though they just nearly got turned into dust. Then she realized the rest of Leila's words. "Wait...what?!" Samira had reached out to stop the fox eared mage, but it was too late. Leila had already disappeared and warped herself so that she was on the dragon. She expected at least more concrete details than that! Keeping her alive was going to be difficult if what she intended to do was not known.

    'What is that animal up to? She intends to calm the dragon? Foolish.'
    'I find it to be very impressive. We should learn from this.'
    'Hmm, do you think playing soothing music would help the cutie out?'
    'I really hope not. I don't want to listen to it.'
    'I don't know why we're even watching them do things the hard way. I could have been called and turned that large reptile into a small fluffy plushie. Oh, how those on the mortal realm love looking like over achievers. It's adorable.'

    Samira could hear the comments made by the spirits that made a place in her mind, but made no comments of her own. What Leila was doing seemed to have taken an effect, but not all of the way. The green haired summoner clenched her teeth as it backfired and the golden dragon began to move chaotically. She had to find a way to get the creature to stay still long enough for Leila to do what she needed to do. "Hades, do you think you can get it to stop moving, even for just a moment?"

    'A moment should be easy enough...for cookies.'

    Samira sweatdropped and fought the urge to face palm. "Why is the spirit incarnation of the god of the underworld so sweet obsessed? This is important and should not require me to pay you in cookies!"

    'That would be my doing. Sorry. I may have had a little too much fun one day and turned him into a doll sized sweet loving spirit. I thought it would have worn off by now though...It's been centuries.'

    With a sigh, Samira had no choice but to submit to the ridiculous demand of paying for his services in cookies. A spirit should not have needed an incentive at all, but there was no time to argue. Still riding on Melon, she took a moment to bring out yet another key. “Open, gate of the Avatar, God of the Underworld! Hades!” A dark purple portal was opened as she called out to the spirit, and from it came out a spirit that Leila had seen before, although she would not remember ever having done so. The small cloaked spirit with the animated green glowing eyes and hidden face floated over towards the golden dragon during its rampage. Inside the dragon's body he went. The creature may of had tough scales that only the strongest of attacks and weapons could pierce, but for a spirit that could enter a body and take control such a defense meant nothing. The type that did matter was the will and mental powers of the creature. It was strong, and Hades could feel heavy resistance. The motivation of cookies made him try harder and overcome it, though. The dragon stopped its rough and unpredictable flight. "You only have a short time to do what you need to do before I am forced out. Make it quick." The spirit said as the dragon's eyes were no longer glowing a brilliant gold, but were a bright green. While he may of been in control at the moment, the dragon was still well aware of what was going on. It would still be able to feel Leila's calming power in both mind and heart.

    As a just in case measure, Samira prepared her next set of keys for more back up plans if that one should fail. She knew the spirit would not be enough to hold the creature in place forever. If Leila required even more time then she had many other spirits that could buy it. Without Kaori and Co. around, she was beginning to feel how useful her versatility and support really was. It was something she had been missing for a long while, and overtime she had thought she had become nothing more than useless. She smiled, having more confidence with herself and with the thought of overcoming the challenge they were facing.

As he watched the golden drakes descend and fall into a deep slumber he gave a nod and made a sort of gruff sound. The plan had worked. There was now no reason for him to remain since his part had concluded, and there should not have been any more of the flying reptiles coming their way. While he was quite capable of fighting and even had more power to offer, it would go against their plan of taking a more peaceful approach. If attacking was required, Samira had stronger spirits for the job. Green particles erupted from his position as Cernunnos disappeared and returned to the celestial realm. No longer would Melon have to suffer carrying him around as well.

    "Hmm," Samira hummed but said nothing more in regards to using offensive spirits. The other mage was probably right when it came to the strength of a dragon's scales. However, their kind had been dealt with before in times past. Not every single one had to of only been killed off by those that possessed dragon slayer magic. There was a certain weakness the summoner logically thought of. If the outside was that well protected then that meant attacking the inside where it was likely soft and fleshy even on a strong and magical creature such as the golden dragon that now stood as an obstacle. It was a back up thought in the back of her mind. For now, she would trust that Leila had a decent plan that would work much like hers did with the smaller drakes. Before the fox eared mage could go into detail, the large dragon made an attack against them. "Ahhh! Sam-Sam, watch out!" Cupid shouted from where he was. His small arms flailed about as he made a quick effort to move out of the way from the golden flames headed their way. He wasn't exactly fast or strong enough to act as a sort of defense against such an attack.

    Samira had been about to make her own effort to avoid the attack, although it would have been very difficult if not entirely impossible to do so unscathed. She was saved though as Leila had grabbed her hand and pulled her in. A quick gasp of surprise was let out during the action, but Samira soon regained her senses as a sort of black bubble formed around the pair and wolf. She thought nothing of the embrace as she had been through such acts of protection before. Sadly, it was common for her to require it, but at the very least it would not feel awkward for her. The shadow shield had protected them, but barely. Cracks had formed along its surface, and as Samira turned around to glance over where the attack was going, her eyes widened as a large explosion took place in the distance. She then cringed as she pictured what would have happened if not for the defensive ability used by Leila. They were going to be in trouble if that attack was made again when they were not prepared for it. "Agreed," the summoner stated calmly even though they just nearly got turned into dust. Then she realized the rest of Leila's words. "Wait...what?!" Samira had reached out to stop the fox eared mage, but it was too late. Leila had already disappeared and warped herself so that she was on the dragon. She expected at least more concrete details than that! Keeping her alive was going to be difficult if what she intended to do was not known.

    'What is that animal up to? She intends to calm the dragon? Foolish.'
    'I find it to be very impressive. We should learn from this.'
    'Hmm, do you think playing soothing music would help the cutie out?'
    'I really hope not. I don't want to listen to it.'
    'I don't know why we're even watching them do things the hard way. I could have been called and turned that large reptile into a small fluffy plushie. Oh, how those on the mortal realm love looking like over achievers. It's adorable.'

    Samira could hear the comments made by the spirits that made a place in her mind, but made no comments of her own. What Leila was doing seemed to have taken an effect, but not all of the way. The green haired summoner clenched her teeth as it backfired and the golden dragon began to move chaotically. She had to find a way to get the creature to stay still long enough for Leila to do what she needed to do. "Hades, do you think you can get it to stop moving, even for just a moment?"

    'A moment should be easy enough...for cookies.'

    Samira sweatdropped and fought the urge to face palm. "Why is the spirit incarnation of the god of the underworld so sweet obsessed? This is important and should not require me to pay you in cookies!"

    'That would be my doing. Sorry. I may have had a little too much fun one day and turned him into a doll sized sweet loving spirit. I thought it would have worn off by now though...It's been centuries.'

    With a sigh, Samira had no choice but to submit to the ridiculous demand of paying for his services in cookies. A spirit should not have needed an incentive at all, but there was no time to argue. Still riding on Melon, she took a moment to bring out yet another key. “Open, gate of the Avatar, God of the Underworld! Hades!” A dark purple portal was opened as she called out to the spirit, and from it came out a spirit that Leila had seen before, although she would not remember ever having done so. The small cloaked spirit with the animated green glowing eyes and hidden face floated over towards the golden dragon during its rampage. Inside the dragon's body he went. The creature may of had tough scales that only the strongest of attacks and weapons could pierce, but for a spirit that could enter a body and take control such a defense meant nothing. The type that did matter was the will and mental powers of the creature. It was strong, and Hades could feel heavy resistance. The motivation of cookies made him try harder and overcome it, though. The dragon stopped its rough and unpredictable flight. "You only have a short time to do what you need to do before I am forced out. Make it quick." The spirit said as the dragon's eyes were no longer glowing a brilliant gold, but were a bright green. While he may of been in control at the moment, the dragon was still well aware of what was going on. It would still be able to feel Leila's calming power in both mind and heart.

    As a just in case measure, Samira prepared her next set of keys for more back up plans if that one should fail. She knew the spirit would not be enough to hold the creature in place forever. If Leila required even more time then she had many other spirits that could buy it. Without Kaori and Co. around, she was beginning to feel how useful her versatility and support really was. It was something she had been missing for a long while, and overtime she had thought she had become nothing more than useless. She smiled, having more confidence with herself and with the thought of overcoming the challenge they were facing.

    The dragon’s scales were beautiful and smooth. Almost resembling plates of glimmering gold from this close, it was truly something to behold. Though Leila had hardly any time at all to be admiring what the dragon looked like from this close. On these smooth scales, her hands were starting to slip and she was unable to properly get a grip that would help her stay on. As the dragon trashed around, there was even a moment where her entire body would go sailing up and then hit the dragon again as she fell and nearly slid down his side. But amidst all of this, she noticed something small approaching. She was unable to really identify it in that single moment, but she hoped it had something to do with Samira who was hopefully trying to restrain the dragon for at least a little while. It was understandable that the beast was this agitated. No one would want their mind tampered with. However, the girl wasn’t really trying to tamper with it in the grand scheme of things. Her ability to pacify was a removal of negative emotions from creatures that they harbored toward humans. A moment of peace in which the beast could think clearly again and decide what it truly wanted based on all the facts rather than impulses that usually went as quickly as they came and left not much more than a jumble of regrets. After all, she had succumbed to rage in the past herself, and she did not want anyone else to go through that experience if at all possible.

    But all of a sudden, the erratic movements would start slowing down until they were gone completely, the creature remaining suspended in the air as a voice echoed through it. One of Samira’s spirits? That was what Leila had to assume as she quickly crawled back to the dragon’s head and firmly planted her palms on it. “Thank you! And with this… open your eyes!” Once again she would pour every bit of her energy possible into what little magical prowess her body had left. The searing pain in her body was almost getting unbearable, but for the sake of this creature and the entire city, she had to bear it. Clenching her teeth, she would close her eyes and hope for the best to come. However, the pain suddenly… well, it did not disappear. But there was something different about it. In an instant, the girl started feeling something that she was unable to describe. Opening her eyes again, she was nearly blinded. The entirety of her hands was shining a bright white. A light that even Samira on Melon a fair distance away could probably spot. And not only her hands, the entirety of her body was glowing and generating white light to an extent. It took her few seconds before she realized that this was the Primordial Seal. By trying to take all the pain it was bringing, did she somehow alter it? No, the seal was absolute. Its purpose was to seal anything and everything away!

    So what exactly was going on? Before she could even think about it, she noticed countless disembodied and translucent hands being placed all over the dragon’s back as if dozens of invisible spirits suddenly showed up to help her. Still, that didn’t exactly explain anything. She never had a power like this or anything similar to it even. And that wasn’t even all of it, as markings similar to the primordial seal started spreading all over the dragon as well. While the girl was somewhat distracted by this unexpected event taking place, the dragon’s eyes suddenly returned back to their original color. Presumably forcing her companion’s spirit out, it let out a piercing roar that probably shattered at least few windows in the city and suddenly started moving forward. It wasn’t exactly trashing as hard as before, but its huge body and wings were able to carry it places rather swiftly. Though it also appeared that the beast was either dizzy from what was happening or trying new methods of shaking Leila off, the golden dragon rammed right into a tower that stood in the city. It didn’t look like anyone was inside of it, but the rubble started flying everywhere. One of the larger pieces even flew right at the girl. Something that was a big problem. If she was to lift her hands and defend, the effects of her magic would be instantly lost. But if she didn’t and the stone would knock her off or even kill her…

    Gritting her teeth again, she would almost lift her hands off the scales, willing to sacrifice her progress to stay on for now. But at the very last moment, the clothes she was wearing reacted to her emotions and desires. Forcing her palms firmly against the dragon’s head again, a wraith-like copy suddenly flew out of the girl. Looking exactly the same but completely blue and somewhat transparent, the wraith unsheathed its weapon and swiftly cut the incoming rubble in two. It was the exact same weapon Leila had right now, the one she picked up not too long ago. “What in the… anyway, thanks!” She knew the armor she was wearing very well. And it never had an ability like this. Did something happen to it during the time she had no memories of? In any case, she was free to focus her magic. As if it was losing control, the dragon would just glide forward and beyond the city’s border. If nothing else, they just managed to avoid the city being destroyed by the dragon during their fight. Though the girl still hoped that Samira would be able to take command of Melon for the time being and follow, perhaps even try to do something about the collapsing toward so that it would not hurt anyone in the streets. Looking over her shoulder, the city’s image grew smaller by the second until they the dragon finally glided low enough to hit the ground.

    Suffice to say, it was a rather rough landing. In the moment of the first impact and shock that followed, the wraith disappeared and Leila was no longer able to hold her position. Flying back, she shielded her face with her hands and embraced whatever was coming. Moments later, she would regain her vision. The first thing she saw was the skies above them. She was lying on her back. Tilting her head to the side, she also noticed the golden dragon laying pretty much right next to her. Good thing there was at least a small gap between her and its huge body, else she would have been crushed by now. With a sigh, she would close her eyes and wait. It almost looked as if the dragon was sleeping, but its eyes were still open. The creature was moving and breathing, but it either did not have much energy left or no will to continue moving for now. Finally, Leila would start feeling her body again after the impact. She was hurting all over, but there as a much greater pain in her chest. Opening her eyes again, she noticed it. There was an iron pipe sticking right out of her. Something that she somehow failed to notice until now. “Ugh… oh… come on!” Anyone would have been dead at this point. But Leila was not a human and her body could easily withstand wounds that would be fatal for anyone else. The problem was, she was kinda stuck with this pole going through her heart and pinning her to the ground. “Is anyone around?! Help!

    The possession abilities of her spirit had seemed to have taken effect, something that was relieving for the summoner. If she were to be completely honest with herself, she was not all too confident that it would work as well as it was doing. A soft sigh of relief was made as she closed her eyes and thought for a moment that everything would come to an end more easily and peacefully than she had originally thought. Leila had been right to talk her into that course of action. There was now peace of mind knowing that the other celestial mage could do what she needed to and without herself having to cross the line to find a surefire way that would eliminate the golden dragon. As much as she had come to dislike the ones she had encountered in the past, she could not allow her bias to rule over her actions. There was no telling how long she could keep herself that way, but that line of thought was for another day.

    Samira opened her eyes to once again focus her verdant colored gaze and watched the other woman work. She could see the bright white light from afar, as well as the markings and...hands? Well, that was certainly different. The assumption that it was working was made. That sort of magic was new to her since she had never seen it been done by Leila the two previous times she had worked with her. Unknown to her, Leila was actually more confused than she was in regards to the existence of the abilities being displayed.

    Something appeared to be going wrong as the process of the spells took place. The green-haired summoner narrowed her eyes as the dragon's glowing orbs returned to their normal hue. It was at the same time she could feel Hades' energy disappearing from her control and leaving her plane of existence. Just as she feared. The dragon was far too powerful for him to control for long and had pushed him out. It would not have been a problem if Leila had managed to finish her spell, but from the looks of things it had not completed. The golden beast roared, the piercing sound thundering across the city and probably making a few pairs of ears bleed when the sounds of glass breaking were not enough. "Close, but not enough," Samira commented out loud to herself before biting her lower lip. "Chronos, I wanted to save your use in case I needed to attack, but I am going to have to use you now."

    "Do what you think is necessary, Samira," replied the spirit she had mentioned. Like the other, he was not a spirit that focused on combat but rather utility and support; a time spirit with the abilities that should have been able to put the golden dragon into a time lock. The creature would remain still for such time until it overpowered even his magic. That was the plan anyway.

    Samira had his key in hand and prepared to summon him as the dragon began to resume the thrashing from before, although more weakly. That did not stop it from moving too quickly for her to act though. Before she could do the summoning properly, the dragon, and the other mage that was unfortunately being carried along with it, zoomed by and had rammed into one of the town's towers before taking off again. Now she had two choices: keep following the out of control dragon and the mage riding it, or stop the tower and prevent the disaster that would inevitably come from it collapsing. The choice was obvious. Leila may have lost some of her memories and that of most of her magic, but Samira knew she was strong and capable. She wasn't defenseless and had a good head on her shoulders as far as she was concerned. Now she just had to hope the flying magical wolf she rode understood that and would take the order not to follow where her owner had gone. The wings of cupid that had been on her back disappeared as the small spirit that had granted them had used up his time on Samira's world and returned to his own.

    Surprisingly, Melon listened to her and quickly made for the direction of the tower, and had even descended so they were nearer the ground. Along the way, Samira held out two keys. "There will be a slight change of plans," Samira said out loud while taking priority of the time spirit first. "Open, gate of the Avatar, The Keeper of Time! Chronos!” The white haired spirit that had features of that of a clock appeared from his created portal. Near instantly the falling rubble ceased to fall; stopping in mid-air. The next spirit key came into play as the summoner switched it with the one that belonged to Chronos. “Open, gate of the Avatar, God of Earth! Geb!” Unlike some of the other spirits Samira was known to summon, Geb was slightly different due to his size. His summoning portal was massive and was just barely big enough to allow the earth spirit to pass through. Unfortunately, he was slow moving, but with the time stop in place he did not need speed. His hands that were nothing more than pieces of floating large chunks of rock grabbed onto the tower to straighten and prevent it from leaning further. It would most certainly need repairs, but for the moment it would not cause any harm. As for the broken pieces that had already fallen off and were trapped in the air by magic, that was easily handled by grabbing them one by one and gently placing them on the ground. Someone else could do the clean up. The process only took a few minutes, but it was probably a few minutes too many. She needed to catch up to Leila and the dragon. The two summoned spirits were dismissed, and both Samira and Melon were back in pursuit.

    What the two found was both dragon and Wizard Saint lying on the ground. At first, Samira had thought everything was fine and dandy. The two may have been on the ground, but the main problem was now still, and she doubted Leila was dead. She didn't exactly know what the fox eared woman was, but it was certainly not human. That much she had found out while in Bosco. As they got closer and began the descent, Samira could hear the shouts of help coming from the other. Understandable, that is, until she saw the pole sticking out of of the woman where the heart should have been. Definitely not human. A normal person would have been dead, or at least be spitting up blood while being completely unable to yell like that. If not for her concern, Samira may had resorted to laughing. Being stuck on a pole and unable to die was something one could only picture in fictional novels. Not the pain and suffering ones, of course, but of the silly characters that felt no pain from such a thing anyway. However, yes, her worry overpowered the thoughts of the slightly comical scenario before her. It was not a novel but real life. The fox eared girl may not be one to die but surely she still felt pain. "Leila! Are you all right?!" Samira cried as Melon fully landed. The girl jumped right off and rushed over with worry on her face, not taking into account that was probably one of the dumbest questions she could have possibly asked.

    Samira touched the pole that was pinning the other to the ground but dared not try to pull it out. She knew very little about the other so she was not all too sure what would happen if she tried. "One moment, I have an idea. One that should be slightly less painful than me or a spirit removing this by force." The idea? Summon yet another spirit; one that could remove the pole entirely, in his own way at least. From the keychain attached to the shorts she wore, she removed two more keys. One for the pole removal, and the other for whatever healing would be required. Whether or not Leila had healing powers while she magic was locked away was uncertain to her, and she wanted to be ready just in case. It was a lot of summons in such a short period of time, but she could handle the stress on her magical energy. For now anyway. Samira could only hope not much more needed to be done to save the town from the dragon and the rest of its spawn. They'd no doubt be waking up sometime soon. “Open, gate of the Avatar, God of Tricks! Loki!”

    From the newly opened portal popped a red outfitted jester-like spirit. He was normally a mischievous character, and the sparkle in his eyes and wide almost creepy grin said as much. "Oh, goodness. Realizing that you are wasting too much time summoning random spirits when I could have just finished the job in a few seconds, are you?" The rather silly incarnation of the god of tricks shook his head hopelessly while clicking his tongue. "Not even your abilities would have lasted long against it. Now, do what you can to be useful now and remove the pole." Another head shake and a sigh. "You only need a couple of seconds to step on a snail," he commented with a sigh before focusing on the pinned fox eared woman. "My, my. You certainly got yourself into a mess, didn't you, dear? What's it feel like?" Whether or not Leila answered, and no matter how she did if she chose to answer, the jester spirit would laugh in an amused manner. "Well, I suppose I should be getting you out of there, shouldn't I? Wouldn't want Sammy over there to get angry at me." He nonchalantly pointed over at the green-haired summoner, who was in the middle of summoning what would hopefully be her final one. "I would say hold still, but that would certainly be redundant, wouldn't it?" With another amused laugh, Loki grabbed onto the pole with his gloved hand and released a bit of his magic. The pole that was pinned inside the woman transformed into a cute, small, and fluffy stuffed dragon, and was in his hand instead of being through her chest. "Ta-da!...Hey! Watch the boots, River Man!"

    The second spirit that had been summoned was He Bo, a spirit made entirely out of water and formed the shape of a human man. Once the pole had been transformed, his healing waters flowed over where the wound should have been. In seconds the wound would have closed and the waters flow back towards him, leaving the mage completely dry instead of soaked, and unharmed assuming she did not heal herself in some way. The two spirits then disappeared into particles, but not before the jester mentioning that they should probably stay out of trouble for the rest of the day.

    With that crisis over, it was now time to worry about the dragon once more, who was still lying there, breathing and eyes opened but otherwise motionless. "I have met a few that relate to dragonkind, but most of the time they kept their true form hidden. This would only be the second one I have seen this closely." Samira would comment while looking at the golden dragon in awe. She had disliked the ones she came across in the past, but up close even she had to admit many were quite beautiful to look at, and even impressive. Taking more steps closer to the creature, Samira did what any normal curious person like her would do; touch it. "Hm, the scales are quite hard after all. The ones I have touched before were more leather like." The large creature moved a bit, but Samira seemed to be oblivious as her curious side took over and continued rubbing the dragon's scales. "If you have not already done so, now would probably be the best time to finish your spell. Any longer and it may recover."

    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix A-Rank

    Yes, Leila was completely and utterly stuck this time around. The pole was firmly lodged in the ground beneath her, as they must have hit and crushed a smaller structure when the dragon landed. Hopefully they did not crush any living creature, though if they did, she would have smelled blood by now. Or blood other than hers anyway. While she was not a human, she tried to be like one and designed her body so. As such, there was some blood forming a smaller pool beneath her body and the rest adorned the pole itself in the area going through her. It was a fair bit uncomfortable, but she had lived through worse. Pain meant very little to her anymore, as her body was mangled and nearly completely destroyed a number of times in the past. It was both curse and a blessing, her immortality. She was denied the right to eternal peace and every single time she ‘died’, it was so much pain that she wished she would have never even been born. But with time, she started getting used to it. Whether that was good or a bad thing, she did not quite know. But at least it was helping her right now. If something like this happened at the start of her entire adventure as a mage, she would have surely screamed out in pain and perhaps even passed out because of it. Right now, it was just more annoying than anything else. Magic was perhaps the only thing that could truly and greatly cause her pain.

    Finally, Samira and the green wolf arrived together. The Eden’s caretaker was starting to lose hope, as it was at least few minutes of her lying around like this now. Thankfully, the green-haired girl did not abandon her. Something that was always very nice. As an answer to the question if she was alright, she smiled, albeit obviously in some amount of pain. “I’ll live, I think.” She was capable of dying in a sense, but that generally required her entire physical form to be destroyed. And even then, she would just kinda grow out of the Earth to live again. Samira probably deserved an explanation at some point, and she would certainly get it if she asked. But for now, they would just have to focus on getting the silver-haired maiden unstuck. And while the summoner’s plan was surely a good one, the person she was trying to help nearly got a heart attack, as she probably would get one if not for the pole stuck through her heart, when she saw the jester-like spirit. Unpleasant memories of Unknown quickly started coming back all at once. She did not remember it was him who erased her memories like this, but she did have memories of him prior to her sacrifice. And, well… after he stopped pretending that he was her summon, their encounters started getting a fair bit unpleasant every single time they would have to meet, be it under any given circumstances.

    Even his personality was somewhat reminiscent of Unknown in the way those two talked to each other. Thankfully there was a certain sense of urgency, so the spirit started paying attention to Leila soon enough. In an attempt to make the situation a little bit less serious, she would move her hands behind her head and try to assume a little bit more relaxed position when the spirit asked how it felt. “Not to bad. Starting to get used to it by now.” Obviously hinting at the fact how much time this was taking. Though the tone of her voice clearly also said that she was not really enjoying her current situation despite trying to be as cheerful as one could be with a metal pipe going through their chest. As soon as the object disappeared, the girl’s body would jerk as she was finally free. Trying to get into a sitting position, the gaping wound on her chest was revealed. Instead of the gore-filled mess that anyone would surely expect, it was oddly clean. The insides of her body were filled with green and red as countless vines with thorns started seeping out in an attempt to fill the hole. Not that it was needed, as the healing water quickly started helping with that process. The vines quickly started turning into meat and skin until she was completely fine as if there was no injury to begin with. Truly, her body was quite something.

    Thank you, you saved me.” She would say toward all three as the two spirits vanished rather quickly. Melon would return to the girl’s side again and nuzzle against her. Something that would reward the creature with pats and later on, some treats.  Leila would then calmly turn her gaze toward Samira who approached the dragon. There was no fear that the golden beast would attack the girl anymore. In fact, when she asked Leila to finish her spell, she just simply shook her head. “I did not completely finish it, but there’s no need to anymore.” With those words, she pointed at the dragon’s head. It was hanging low and tears poured from the creature’s eyes. It was truly weeping. Getting up herself, the Eden’s caretaker would approach Samira and stand next to her while observing the giant body next to them, listening to its heartbeat and breathing. “Even if it is a beast, you can understand it. Being disguised as a human or something similar, they couldn’t possibly feel like themselves. It’s as if you had to wear a full bodysuit to certain cities to not get attacked. And when we crashed her, a felt it for a moment. The feelings this one has inside. I think I hit the mark with my theory of its nest being destroyed. I once read a book that described how one feels after a great loss. If this one’s children were truly slaughtered, then it’s only natural that after disbelief and denial would follow great anger. We just helped it move on to the other stages. And one day, it will accept what happened and move on.

    And just like that, the dragon would start getting up, offering the two girls one sad look before turning around and with powerful flaps of its wings, took to the skies again. Leaving behind only the feeling of sorrow building up inside of it, the creature moved in the opposite direction of the city, leaving it well alone. And only minutes later, the smaller drakes and wyverns would soar across the skies, following the big one to wherever it was going. With a sigh, Leila would sit on the ground once again and smile. “Haah, we actually made it… I wasn’t even hoping. I know this might not be the best place for it, but… if at all possible, would you mind explaining at least a little bit now?” A sincere request to Samira. The danger was gone and the city was left in disarray. But they were a good distance away right now themselves, and surely the official guards and other Lamia Scale members could handle the situation over there. All Leila desired now was knowing what happened to her. Why was this lady her only real lead? Just what events transpired during the time period she had no memory of. There were so many questions, yet there was no point in asking any of them. She would just let the other girl speak freely.

    "There is no reason to?" Not having to complete the spell was rather shocking for Samira. From what she had assumed, it was the only way they were going to stop the rampaging dragon peacefully. Her distraction of rubbing the scales came to an end as she turned towards Leila as she approached. She quietly listened to the explanation and had even turned her gaze back towards the golden dragon to take notice of its tears. The sadness the creature showed spread to even herself. If it had not been for the other mage being in town that very day and convincing her of a more peaceful approach, Samira surely would have tried to take violent action in order to stop it. Difficult, but not impossible. An approach that she would have not enjoyed doing but would have done so with little hesitation if it meant keeping everyone else safe from harm.

    As the dragon rose, Samira took a few steps back to give the creature some room and to prevent herself from either getting stepped on accidentally or bumped into in some other way. The now more calm dragon took off into the skies and headed away from Hargeon. She watched it soar and quickly become nothing more than a tiny dot in the distance. The smaller drakes and wyverns had also filled the skies as they woke from their slumber and left the town as well. The attack had come to an official end. So, her previous experiences with that species was not something that could be used for all of its kind. Where one would be unstoppable and impossible to calm down there would be others that were the exact opposite. It took a magic that was beyond her skillset, but it was possible. Thinking upon it further would have to be saved for another time.

    Samira's attention left the dragon filled skies and focused on the other woman that had taken a seat on the ground and had requested to know more of what had happened the last time the two had seen each other. Right. That had been what they were discussing before the interruption. Her head turned towards the town and she stared at it for a few moments. She felt she needed to get back and help calm the people and get everything sorted out, but at the same time she knew that could wait a little longer. There was no longer a danger and other members of the guild were also still there and knew how to handle things. Anhur was also still there...somewhere. As little care as he usually showed she doubted he would abandon the town and leave it to its own state of panic. She could spare some time explaining a few things.

    "That much I can do for you. It may not be the best location or time, but I assume you have waited long enough. I can only imagine the sort of mental torture you must be going through with not remembering." Samira felt sorry for Leila, but more importantly she had considered it to be her fault to begin with by not preventing the situation. It was likely unavoidable regardless, but she had no true way of knowing that. The young woman sat down next the other and stared at her with complete attention and focus. "I do not really understand what led you here if you have no memory of me, but I guess that makes little difference. My name is Samira Nassar. I am afraid we did not know each other very well, but we did do a couple of missions together. One in the country of Bosco where an incident occurred that only Celestial mages could handle. There was a barrier that killed anyone else. This eventually led to a battle with a cloned Celestial King, where you had gotten absorbed." Samira would pause for a moment to let that sink in and see if the fox eared mage could remember any of that. Once she got some sort of reaction, she would move on.

    "The other and last mission was one where you had sent a job request asking for the aid of higher ranked mages. I accepted it. The mission itself should have been a simple one. You had managed to open a portal to an unknown floating continent, and had quite a crew of people working under you. You were concerned about doing what you had intended to do without offending the natives of the land, however, and as such you needed help with escorting your translator, Seraph, to the main village and establish a sort of peace treaty. We had made it to the village, and you had been in the main tent discussing matters with the village chief when I encountered a strange and disturbing boy. He mentioned helping you fix a few mistakes you had made. I had no idea what that really meant, and I had little time to consider the possibilities. The village was attacked as soon as he had disappeared. We cleared out the enemy, but it was anything but a victory. The boy returned and cast a spell on you. I was ported out of the dimension the continent was in, but as far as I knew I was the only one. Everyone else was still trapped inside, you included. Or, so I had thought. You being here now makes that slightly false." Samira paused again as she took a breath and closed her eyes. Leila somehow getting out must have meant the others did as well. Maybe. Possibly. With her luck, not likely. She really should have mentioned something during all the fighting back then. "Does the name Unknown mean anything to you?" She asked as she opened her eyes. "It was what you called him."

    Leila Vergious Golden Phoenix A-Rank

    Leila simply watched Samira’s movements until the moment she would speak up. It was nice, the fact that this girl took into consideration how Leila must have been feeling. But truthfully, the Eden’s Caretaker was pretty resilient. Her mind broke several times already in the past and she went through many hardships. And she knew that even though there was an extremely powerful seal on her body and memories, she would eventually be able to recover it all one way or another. Just like until now with the dragon, she was not losing hope. She just wanted to know what happened, something that would probably help her find a way to reverse it all.

    She would scoot a bit to make enough space next to her for the summoner and look up into the skies. Two girls, sitting in the grass like this. If not for the crater behind them, it would be pretty peaceful. But at least any and all threats were gone for now. “I’m not quite sure what led me to you either. It was almost like images of you flashing in my mind. And this invisible force pulling me toward the Lamia Scale’s guild hall. I cannot rightly explain it in any other way than something wishing me to be here with you.

    Hoping that didn’t sound too creepy, she continued to listen. It did not truly matter that they didn’t know one another all that much either. As long as she could get any information at all in regards to her unavailable memories. She listened with great interest to the story about Bosco. Leila traveled the world in the past so being in a different country was not surprising at all to her. Though the description of what transpired was… well, it certainly sounded like a unique mission to be on.

    Not to mention that she got absorbed in the end? Well, she was still very much here and alive. So it clearly had to have ended well. Leila already knew of her own lineage and the fact that she came from the void, that she was very similar to celestial spirits in that way. So perhaps that took away from the surprise a bit. In any case, she nodded to confirm that she got it all, allowing Samira to continue. And to her surprise, the second story seemed even less believable than the first one.

    She was the one to send out the contract? She had discovered something like that? No, above all else… she led a group of people. That didn’t sound like her at all. Honestly, it made her question what sort of person she became in those lose memories of hers. She would cover her mouth with one hand and started pondering. It certainly sounded like an adventure alright. But when she mentioned a strange boy, a feeling of nervousness started swelling up inside of her. And the moment a name “Unknown” was uttered, her eyes would widen in terror. Did she really just hear that name again? Even after all that happened in the Gardens of Eden?

    That’s… no… why… Oh no.” Saying that to herself, she would let out a heavy sigh and grab her head with both hands for a moment. She required few seconds to process it all. And after that time passed, she would try to compose herself again and smile at Samira to reassure her that she was fine. “I do know that name. And since you were with me when he used… whatever he used, you deserve to know what he is as well. Unless you don’t want to.” In case Samira said that she didn’t want, Leila would just stop.

    But if she said she wanted to know, then she would explain. “Unknown is not his real name. I do not know his real name, but… he is a Miracle demon. A special kind of demon that is powerful enough to make miracles just happen. This power makes them essentially omnipotent. If you were to fight one, they could just cause a miracle for you to have a heart attack and lose instantly or something. A power that cannot be beaten by normal means.

    A long, long time ago… I made a deal with this demon without knowing what it would cause. He followed me ever since. At first, he posed as one of my spirits, a summon I could use. But then he showed his true colors and started desiring my soul. But then… I went on a mission where I had to hurt someone very dear to me. To that, he said that he was satisfied. Instead of my soul, he was fine just seeing our suffering in it’s strongest.

    And so he left. Our contract disappeared and I thought I was free. Then… I died. You probably already gathered that I’m not a human. I am sort of a spirit, much like the ones you summon. But able to live freely without a leash of a summoner. When I die, my body simple regenerates and that is it. But that one time, I used powerful magic that would sacrifice my entire existence to save someone very dear to my heart. And that is where I was supposed to just disappear, you see. It’s where all of my memories end.

    But then, I suddenly woke up in a cave, hurting all over. I realized there was a seal on me, the one that I used in order to save someone and that was supposed to consume my existence. Scared that I failed, I quickly went to check on the person I tried to save, seal away a power that was destroying them. They are fine and live a happy life, as far as I could tell. But then, those images in my head led me here. To you. And you, along with that other person told me that there was nearly a year worth of life I no longer remember.

    Falling silent for a second, Leila looked into the distance before looking back at Samira. “For some reason, my existence was not consumed. Or it was, but I was brought back somehow. I went on living my life and did those jobs with you. And then Unknown placed the very same seal I tried to use on me. It sealed away my powers and my memories. That’s what it sounds like. But what is his goal… that I have no idea as of just yet. But clearly, he is the key to recovering everything I have lost.” That was her story. How Samira would react to it, well… Leila had no idea until she would see it.

Scared that I failed, I quickly went to check on the person I tried to save, seal away a power that was destroying them. They are fine and live a happy life, as far as I could tell. But then, those images in my head led me here. To you. And you, along with that other person told me that there was nearly a year worth of life I no longer remember.

    Falling silent for a second, Leila looked into the distance before looking back at Samira. “For some reason, my existence was not consumed. Or it was, but I was brought back somehow. I went on living my life and did those jobs with you. And then Unknown placed the very same seal I tried to use on me. It sealed away my powers and my memories. That’s what it sounds like. But what is his goal… that I have no idea as of just yet. But clearly, he is the key to recovering everything I have lost.” That was her story. How Samira would react to it, well… Leila had no idea until she would see it.

    As soon as she had asked whether Leila knew of the name Unknown she got a reaction she did not expect. Leila looked and sounded absolutely terrified. Samira's eyes softened as concern for the other filled them. Perhaps it was too much information to take in all at once. She gently placed her hand on the shoulder of the other girl as a form of comfort and reassurance. Aside from that, she remained silent while Leila processed everything. A whole few seconds. Much quicker than the green haired summoner had anticipated. She removed her hand from Leila's shoulder and placed it on her own lap. Her eyes blinked at the offer being given to know more about what Unknown was. Unexpected, but most certainly was an offer that she was not going to turn down. She had wanted to know more ever since that day, and it was unlikely another opportunity such as the one presented would show itself again anytime soon. It may also possibly contain more information about Leila herself as well. Samira knew she wasn't human, but that was about all she did know. "If you do not mind telling me then I would like to hear it," Samira said with a small smile. Eager for more knowledge she may have been, but she was not going to demand answers.

    Samira listened quietly to the whole story as it was told to her. Her face remained expressionless for the most part. At some points her eyes widened slightly, but they quickly returned to normal as she was fed more information. It was a rather complex and complicated scenario. How fitting for someone that tended to have all sorts of weird and chaotic missions. Already she could hear the sighs and mumbles of her spirits regarding how just once she should try running into normal people. Unknown's existence was explained as was the explanation of why Leila had gotten absorbed by the cloned Celestial King back in Bosco. Samira had seen her spirits as well as Libra get absorbed, so it was only logical that something that was very similar was capable of being absorbed as well.

    The fact she attempted to sacrifice her entire existence was astonishing and something Samira thought to be admirable. She too had someone she would do that for if it meant she could be useful to that person. So many times she felt more strength in being a burden than strength in being a friend. Why the sacrifice did not work she wasn't sure of. It was never mentioned the previous times she saw the fox eared mage. Her friend had known Leila before even she did so it was possible there was more information there. It was something to look into at the very least. "A whole year of lost memories," Samira thought out loud quietly as she stared off into the distance. She couldn't even imagine what going through all of that was like. There was silence for a few moments after Leila had finished speaking. She had lost herself in thought, pondering over what she could do to help. Unknown was the key and yet he was a type of being Samira did not have much information on. Aside from saying he was helping Leila correct a few mistakes, he never said what his true purpose was.

    "Oh, sorry," Samira said quickly as her mind snapped back to reality. She looked over towards Leila with a smile. "I understand things may seem a bit confusing right now, but at the very least the worry you had regarding the one you wanted to save has passed. They are safe even though you are still here. I do not know what prevented your existence from being sacrificed as it should have been, and I do not know why this Unknown has wanted you to forget this past year of your life." Samira then stood up and held out her hand to help the other mage up. "But I do want to help in any way I can. I think it strange for you to be led to me of all people after the fact, but I will trust that it means I can be useful in some way. I know of some others that I can contact that may have some knowledge of Miracle Demons or even the magic of them at the very least. They may even help you piece back together the year you have lost."

    From there, Samira invited Leila to rest in the Lamia Scale guild hall for as long as she liked. She was also given her iLac information if there was ever any long distance contact needed. It was uncertain if Leila even had one at that point given everything she went through, but she assumed she could get one eventually or borrow one. Whether Leila had chose to remain for some time or not to rest after dealing with the dragon, Samira would be busy handling matters in the town. She planned to look into Leila's situation more afterwards. Hopefully, the next time they met, there would be some sort of lead worth discussing.
