Noheme ◊ Fairy Tail ◊ H-Rank
Once again, the days started slowing down, yet would leave little to no memories that would allow the Vixen to feel like any time actually passed. Right now, each day was a bit of a drag. But once it was over, it was almost as if that day never even happened. Distant events started feeling like they happened just yesterday and nothing new was happening. Were these the signs of the girl’s increasing age? No, surely not. In reality, she was thousands of years old and days or even years would not make much difference to her in this way. It was something a little different.
Walking distance away from the Mountain Village there stood a big, yet somewhat humble looking oriental mansion. Due to the nature of these mountains, it often snowed and even now, the building was mostly covered in the white powder. While not too known in the rest of Fiore, locals already knew very well what this building was. That is a fairly new Hotel and restaurant that also provided natural Hot Springs. A luxurious establishment that was built by a girl known as Eris Sytry. A name that Noheme used when introducing herself to complete strangers. But these days, she was actually embracing her true name more than ever.
She was a moon goddess that originated in the Void between worlds. Eventually receiving power from a Miracle Demon, she was able to create an Astral Realm. A world much like Earthland, but consisting only of Islands that floated in the air. This realm was now mostly abandoned due to the many unfortunate circumstances. Something that resulted in the goddess now taking residence in this world, Earthland. And after she received power that could rival the strongest individuals in this world, she decided to settle down. Not for good, but she was spending a lot of her days in this establishment of hers.
Exchanging the action-packed days of being with other mages or alone and fighting for her life for the quiet and long days of doing almost nothing. She had hired plenty of staff to take care of the guests and the only real excitement she had in her life right now was occasionally peeking into the female section of her hot springs and admiring the beauty of her favorite type of costumer. After all that, one should not have any trouble understanding just why the girl felt so alone and lonely from time to time, her days dragging on without anything going on.
But today was to be different. Despite being a proud owner of this place now, she did still go out into the field from time to time to enjoy some of the more carnal desires. And for quite some time now, the Kitsune would hear about this strange dragon that could not even fly. Far above the land where most people walked, at the peaks of Terra Ignis, the creature would slumber. To be honest, she had never paid all that much attention to legends like this. But now, it became quite enticing with the fact she had absolutely nothing else to do.
She had already taken down a dragon or two, so she certainly had the experience and power required to do so again. Not to mention that such feats were always handsomely paid for. If not in gold, then in fame. And while the vixen did not particularly desire to have all that many eyes on her, she figured that stories of taking down an obsidian dragon would increase her chance of getting the ladies every now and then. A reward in itself that would make her future quite a pleasant one, at least during the night part of the day.
Chuckling to herself and her silly ideas, the nine-tailed fox would get up from her royal-looking couch and stretch a bit. She had one of her servants gather all information she required about the creature and the mountains themselves. Her abilities would allow the fox to simply ‘teleport’ to the peak and right to the boss fight, but she figured that would be just way too boring. No, she wanted at least some adventure today. As such, she told her servant to look for a suitable landing spot near the mountain so that she could climb it from the very bottom.
Ringing a small bell that lied on her work desk, the doors soon opened to let in a young and fairly short girl with cat tail and ears. A Joyan that worked in this establishment and was the person Noheme asked to do all these favors. Receiving a list of all the information from her, the goddess would smile warmly at her servant. All nine of her golden tails would sway in the space behind, almost knocking few of the items around down but just narrowly avoid them with the girl’s experience and knowledge of where everything was in this place.
“Good job. Go and enjoy the bath for today as a reward, dear. It’s on the house. I won’t be around for the rest of today.” Dismissing her servant, she would require a moment of time alone as she prepared herself. Well, there wasn’t really much that she needed to prepare. Mostly just her own will, the fact that she would once again enter combat. A little stretch before she would transport herself. And soon enough, shadows in the room would start gathering beneath her divine form, her physical form sinking into them and becoming one with the Earth.
Only mere seconds later, shadows would do the same in an Inn that was filled with life this fine day. Understandably, everyone present would be stunned for a bit as one of the walls suddenly created a pitch black spot from which a nine-tailed fox girl exited into the reality. It was a simple establishment right at the bottom of the mountains used by tourists who wished to climb before or after they would do so. “Good day to you all~.” She would playfully greet everyone around her, their forms still in shock. And at the same time, she would look around to see if she could spot someone more interesting than just a regular human.
