    The Demon King

    ”“
    Kite had been sitting at one of the various bar stools in the Red Dragon inn located in the middle of the town Ace of Spade with a plate of food on its way. Despite the fact that he owned the inn and could visit at any given time with one simple jump through a portal inside the guild hall safely hidden in the realm in between. Ever since the Yggdrasil, the new Guild Hall had been grown in the realm that housed the Elders, he’d not gotten a moment’s peace. First an army of monsters broke into their world at various locations throughout Fiore including Beanstalk village where he fought his share of the invaders alongside his friend and Second in command Ryo, The Guild Master of SIlver Wolf Leila Vergious and one of the aces of lamia Scale Samira  and then his magic had gotten stolen during a visit by Iza which got him killed and then resurrected. So one could surmise that Kite’s life had not been anything less than busy including too busy to come to the inn and sit down for a good cooked meal. However this was one of the rare occasions that he had no paperwork, he had no crisis to deal with, no training to do and of course no plans on dying today so all in all today was a good day and the best part of this day was going to be the enormous breakfast he ordered from the kitchen. His order was 3 eggs scrambled, a short stack of pancakes, a stack of thick waffles, 5 strips of bacon and coffee and now all he had to do was wait. The clerk tending the bar approached holding Kite’s cup of coffee, “hey Master coffee is up.” and proceeded to slide the small white cup of coffee down to the Guild master which of course he caught but gave the keep a stern expression, ”You don’t gotta keep calling me that. Kite is fine.“ he said before sipping his piping hot coffee “Yeah I know.. It just feel i dunno.. Disrespectful?” and that was still strange. He wasn’t always the guild master and never once imagined that calling him anything other than Master could be looked at as disrespectful. ”We will work on that. How long until the food is done?“ he was genuinely curious to just how much more of a wait he would have to endure in order to enjoy his delicious smelling food. “Last I checked they were just waiting on the bacon to finish cookin, should be another minute.” and as much joy as that brought to him it unfortunately it was the famous last words. After the clerk went to assist another customer the messenger that brought the mail from the council arrived and of course once he spotted the Guild Master he made his way over already reaching into his bag to extract some sort letter for him. “Here you go Master Kite.” he held the letter out but Kite sipped the coffee, ”No.“ he said after he swallowed  and sipped again. Stunned by the answer the boy kept the letter out. “Master Kite it’s from the Council. It’s urgent.” Kite put his cup down next to him on the counter and looked at the boy, ”Turn around and walk out that door and come back in ten minutes.“ He pointed but the boy was stubborn, “Sir its my job to give this to you please take the letter.” Kite reached and snatched it out of the air clearly showing his annoyance. ”Only five minutes huh.“ and almost on cue the plate with his food slid next to him an the clerk have him a thumbs up.

    Back in the guildhall located in the realm between the portal that connected the Yggdrasil and the special room at the back of the Red Dragon Inn rippled as Kite walked through with the paper clenched in fist. He managed to find another army to fight off and this one was controlled by demons. ”It had to be demons.“ had it been anything else he would have been able to ignore it long enough for him to sit and eat his food that he had been longing for some time However the numbers the council managed to discover was alarming and he would need help. Ryo wasn’t around at the moment so he would have to find a partner and as it just so happened he had one in mind. He boarded Tail Spin through the Cargo Bay and walked right up the stairs to the catwalk that lined the walls of the ship, ”EDI spin up the engine. We got work.“ He climbed the stairs until he was above deck and made his way to the cockpit. He could hear the turbines as well as the main engine at the end of the ship roar to life before he made it through the foredeck, “Where are we heading?” EDI asked wanting to set their coordinates. ”The cursed lands is where we have work but we are going to make a detour to Hargoen.“ she let a small chuckle, “Again?” Hargeon somehow  drew Kite to in for a job in on fashion or another so a sigh escaped as he sat and took hold of the controls and pulled the ship into the air, ”I am going to see if Samira wants to join me. A mage as powerful as her could help me make short work of this or rather shorter work.“ If EDI had a face it would be in a smirk, “Isn’t Samira one of the young ladies you met in Beanstalk.. The one with the dark green hair that you offered a ride.” it wasn’t a question. ”That’s right why?“ he was curious to what she was getting at. ”For a human female she is considered attractive right?“ Kite cocked his head, ”I’d say so yes.“ he said as he turned the ship and pulled it through the large one way portal to put him in Fiore sky above Ace of spades which is when EDI took over and steered it to the Lamia scale guild. “You gonna hit on her again?” he would cross his arms at the question, ”I’m not answering that.“ he turned away from her view finder and she chimed in. “ Just dont get me blown up if she gets angry.” There was silence for the remaining trip until EDI broke the silence. “ We have arrived.” Kite stood up still red from the question and went below deck to the cargo bad to exit the ship and headed towards teh Lamia scale guild. ”I’ve never been here before. I wonder if they have a door bell.“

    The Guild Master of Sabertooth was actually quite lucky that he had not wasted time by going to the wrong area completely. While Lamia Scale did still have a branch in Hargeon Town a good many of its members had shifted over to the newer branch and guild hall that was located away from Fiore and within Pandora. Samira herself had been one of those that had ventured away from the old location of the guild and mostly stayed with the new. It was required of her given she was one of the Aces as well as one of the more powerful members of the guild. While the guild hall in Hargeon Town was normally safe the one in Pandora was not, and the strongest mages the guild had needed to be there while everything was getting settled to prevent some catastrophe from happening. A safety precaution that she herself agreed with. Unfortunately, the grand library stayed with the old branch, which meant she had to travel away from Pandora and make it back to Hargeon anytime she needed to look something up. Unlucky for her, but very lucky for a certain Guild Master that was making his way there by ship.

    Samira couldn't really remember the last time she had bothered leaving the guild. If she really thought hard enough perhaps she could place a mark on the timeline that highlighted an invasion of sorts. The third call of the Magic Council concerning monster attacks to be more specific. That had actually taken her to Beanstalk Village where she had aided in its defense along with a few notable people. Two of them having more than one title to mark their significance within Fiore. She was indifferent when it came to them. The other though, well, he had lost quite a few points the moment he called her "cutie." That was still a bit cringe worthy for a woman like her. One that did not take any sort of flirtation very well. Past experiences had a part to play where that was concerned, but that was not very important. That incident had been put behind her since she did not really expect to see him again unless the world was coming to an end.

    Samira was in the grand library of Lamia Scale, sitting at one of the many tables with books scattered all around her. The third of her spirit trials had been completed and she had passed with flying colors. Well, as much flying colors as that spirit would allow. His power was hers now, but he was less than pleased about it. Still, that meant only two more remained. When they would happen she wasn't sure. The spirits knew, of course, but had neglected to keep her informed. Something she should have been used to by then. It just had to be accepted that the fourth trial could happen at any time no matter what she was doing. Thankfully it would not be that day. Nope. Another sort of mission was coming her way, and once again she didn't even know it. Her research was going to have to be put on a halt and saved for another day.

    While the summoner may have been hidden away deep in the quiet library of the guild hall one of her spirits was not. The spirit incarnation of Anhur had spotted Tail Spin flying into town from where he was standing, which happened to be the roof of the guild itself. He recognized it even though he had only seen it once and very briefly when it was flying into Beanstalk Village as he left Samira there to fend for herself. The ship then landed near the guild hall itself, and as he continued watching he saw a man heading towards the guild. Terrific. Even if he were absent from the fight that day he still put the pieces together from what he had been told. One would have assumed a visit from the leader of another guild surely would have meant it was a meeting for Gisen, the Guild Master of Lamia Scale. She was not present, however. The bunny girl was off at the Pandora branch as far as he knew. That or hiding under the couch somewhere to avoid people she did not know.

    'Your guild has a visitor,' he said mentally, sending the thought towards the grand library where the summoner was busying herself with whatever knowledge hunt nonsense she was on now. No response was given. 'Samira...' He waited several seconds before growling as annoyance began to overtake him. 'SAMIRA!'

    'The guild has many visitors,' her reply finally made, as calm as it usually was despite having just been yelled at by a spirit. Honestly she had been ignoring him until then and had thought he would drop the matter entirely. The mind yelling was starting to get a bit distracting, especially if he was going to use such volume. 'You complained to me just the other day about them. What makes this one more important than the others?' Samira gently flipped the page of a book that was on the table in front of her. No one that also happened to be in the library was disturbed. Her replies were given telepathically to the spirit, and as such the large room remained eerily quiet.

    'The visitor is one of those male mages you spoke of from the defensive battle of Beanstalk Village.'

    The summoner paused in mid-page turn and allowed the slip of paper to gracefully fall back down in place. That was a piece of news that she did not want to hear. There was a fifty fifty chance that her levels of tolerance would be tested during the visit. Then again, why on Earthland would an Ace or Guild Master of Sabertooth be in Hargeon? Or even taking the time to come to the Lamia Scale guild hall? 'Please tell me that it is the one with the hat.'

    'That would be lying, but very well. It is the one clearly wearing an invisible hat. So powerful is this item that it has found me unworthy and will not allow my eyes to gaze upon its magnificence.'

    'You have been taking lessons from Susano to increase the effectiveness of your sarcasm, have you?' Samira sighed and leaned back in her chair. Of the two why did it have to be that one? Now she had to figure out a way to not involve herself with whatever reason it was he came here. Naturally she did not immediately assume that he was there to see her personally for a mission. She wasn't so egotistical as that. There had to be some other reason. 'Go inform Gisen of his arrival.'

    'Hey, Samira! Did you drop a few IQ points while reading that trash? The rabbit isn't here.'

    'Oh.' She may have forgotten that little detail in her moment of self preservation. 'He must be here to see Aiyana then. She is a Wizard Saint so he must need her for something significant. Go inform her, Anhur.'

    'Correct me if I am wrong on this, but have we even seen that one before? Would Anhur even know what to look for?'

    'I would not. I am starting to think she is a myth because of this.'

    A groan of hopelessness came from Samira at that. Two Lamia Scale leaders down, leaving only her to take care of the situation. Time to do some management and give someone else a bit of power! 'Go find Hebisha. The lamia of Lamia Scale should suffice for this.' Instantly she could almost feel the facepalms of the spirits that stayed connected with her mind. 'Did... did you really just skip over yourself?! What the hell?!'

    'What you call skipping I call delegating.' That was not enough to convince the spirits otherwise. Samira's brows began to twitch in mild annoyance at concluding that she would just have to see what the leader of Sabertooth wanted. "Fine! I will go!" She shouted vocally while slamming her palms on the table, ending the mental conversation and getting both surprised glances and shushes from others in the library. They went ignored, and the woman stood up to leave the library as well as the mess of books and papers she had made. As far as she was aware she was coming back anyway. "Anhur, has he entered the guild building yet?"

    'No. He is making his way into the main entrance now.'

    "Good. I will meet him there." Samira then paused her steps. "Janus." At the call of his name a mechanical looking spirit shaped in a human form materialized in a burst of magic particles. He was a the spirit incarnation of the god of portals, and making portals was his specialty. Samira planned to use that ability of his to appear where the visitor was, or at least nearby. "Could you please make a portal that leads to the entrance of the guild? I would appreciate it."

    The newly summoned spirit nodded slowly before speaking with cheerful enthusiasm at the request. "Of course, my dear! One moment!" Janus turned away slightly and motioned his arm into the shape of a circle. As his arm moved a pale blue sparkling energy followed, filling the circle that would have otherwise been invisible. When the shape was complete, the energy sparked and made a small explosive but harmless reaction. Once settled a magically generated warp portal remained in the air, waiting for someone to make use of it. Unfortunately that someone was hesitating. "Hmmm? Is there something wrong?"

    Samira's green eyes stared at the portal, narrowed as she went into thinking mode. There was nothing wrong but... Her gaze shifted over towards Janus. "You go. I will stay here. Consider this as protecting me against meaningless flirtations and awkward moments of being hit on." The spirit's eyes went wide and his jaw dropped in disbelief. "You can't ju-"

    "I'll go!" A hyperactive high pitched voice spoke. The source being the scorpion tailed spirit known as Serqet popping into existence in a poof of purple colored magic particles. Both Janus and Samira attempted to stop the spirit as she began to run through the portal so she could meet and greet the super important visitor. If any spirit was going to go out there it sure was not going to be that one. She wasn't serious enough and was more of a playful and embarrassing type. The world did not need to know yet another quirky character that belonged to Lamia Scale. How unfortunate it was that the attempt to stop the spirit had failed, and had even made things worse. Serqet's persistence and energy could not be matched. During the scuffle Janus had been shoved through his own portal. Then Serqet had somehow managed to jump inside while yelling "Whheeeee!" as she disappeared, and Samira had pretty much fallen into the portal when Serqet made her leap.

    Lamia Scale may not have had a doorbell that Samira was aware of, but it came with near instant visitor greeting services. It was so top notch and professional that it even knew the person someone came to see and would deliver them right to the door! Well, that's what it would have looked like anyway for Kite's case. The other end of the portal opened up in front of and above the entrance of the guild and its doors. First the mechanical man spirit came crashing down onto the ground, landing on his stomach and groaning. Then came the scorpion tailed woman spirit, landing on the mechanical man in a sitting position with an oof and a giggle. The extra weight only made the spirit below her shout more from the unexpected pain. Then came the green-haired summoner, screaming as she fell from the portal and only stopped when she landed on the two spirits. They both burst into particles upon impact, and Samira would then fall the rest of the way to the ground.

    "Owww." Samira sat up, feeling slightly pained from the fall but not really by much. It was actually forgettable after she realized the portal had worked a little too well. She blinked her eyes, staying silent and feeling embarrassed at having made a rather... unique appearance rather than a formal one to be taken seriously given her rank. Already she could picture the Lamia Scale guild master bopping her head with a carrot for it. Probably best to just let it slide and pretend that did not happen at all. Yes, maybe, just maybe that would work and allow her grand entrance to be overlooked. "Hello, Mr. Wilhelm," she began to say respectfully and putting on a small sheepish smile. "Welcome to Lamia Scale. What brings you all the way out here? If you are here to see Ms. Ceostra or Ms. Aiyana they are not currently present." Samira stayed seated on the ground where she landed, having not really gotten to the thought process of standing just quite yet.

    The Demon King

    ”“
    The ship had landed on one of the docks near the outskirts of town, Kite figured it would be much more tasteful than landing right outside the guild hall and in the street not there was any room to do so in the first place. This meant he would have to get the the guild hall the old fashioned way, walking. ”Keep the engines warm EDI. I have the suspect this visit to be short.“ he was about to exit the ship but EDI had to get some shots in on her captain. “Will that be with the ace from Lamia scale or just her hand print on your face?” he looked at her view finder and shook his head, ”You know I’m not an evil lecherous hump right?“ EDI immediately spoke, “Oh that I believe but when pretty girls are around your mouth gets you in trouble.” With a shrug he left without responding to her but did say under his breath, ”I swear I’ll deactivate her.“ this was an empty threat. As much as EDI liked to get on his nerves he enjoyed having her around on his ship especially considering all the hell they had went through over the years even when she was almost destroyed.

    The walk through Hargeon was pretty straight forward and the guild wasn’t very far from the docks but that didn’t make this town anymore of an annoyance for him. He had nothing against the town or the people that lived there it had to do more with what experiences and trouble he had found there. He had beaten up thugs, killed monsters and even survived a rampaging Heero during the event that would be known as the Rising Tide where Hargeon was attacked by a gigantic monster and its many minions. He himself didn’t get a shot in on the big guy himself but the former master of Fairy Tail Heero had been possessed by a Siren. His actions surprisingly snapped Heero out of it but the Siren managed to escape with her plans ruined. So while things have never exactly been smooth each time stepped foot in the town he claimed to be the bane of his existence he has also had rather good fortune whenever he would venture here so perhaps today would be the same. He had left the his red duster like coat on the ship and was wearing his usual outfit. A tight fit black compression shirt that was was tucked into a pair of all black combat pants.  His pants were held secured to him by a plain black belt but that was mostly hidden by the loose fitting belt that wrapped around his hips and secured a piece of technology that looked like a slab metal which secured his newly forged handcannon Rose. Usually he would have Reaper secured on his back but he left that at the ship too. Aside from a view thugs there wasn’t much left in the way of threats in Hargeon. Kite’s hands were in his pockets as he continued to walk along the main street towards the guild, ”Greetings Samira. I have come to whisk you away on an adventure.“ he shook his head no that wouldn’t do it lacked any form of professionalism. He drew even closer now, ”Samira. I have come to recruit you on an important mission.“ he shook his head once more. ”No now that sounds way too formal and lacks any sort of personality.“ had he not flirted with her back in Beanstalk village he wouldn’t worry so much about how to approach her. ”Should I just try to do it naturally. This planning is for the birds. I’ll just do what I do best and that is wing it.“ Flirting was Kite’s thing always had been but of course he had to flirt with the daughter of death, the result was having half his soul ripped away. The latter part was remedied by his new magic but ever since then he gotten a little heavy with the flirting. ”Why is it so hard to find a good woman. Maybe I just suck at it?“ he was right outside the property of the guild now, ”I guess it would be too easy to have the right girl just fall out of the sky wouldn’t it?“

    Almost on cue a circle appeared above him just outside of the Guild’s entrance. The sudden appearance of this circle gave off a magic energy and while it wasn’t exactly powerful it was potent. ”Well now. What do we have here?“ he said to himself and as he did three figures dropped popped out from the circle and fell to the ground. First was a metal man who looked very similar to the sort of soldiers that Mars utilized but unlike them there was nothing seemingly organic about him. The next to fall was a female who had traits and characteristics of a scorpion and she landed on her butt right on the back of the metal man with an oof. The last person to pop out was none other than the person he was looking for, Samira and it clicked that the first two to pop out of the circle were in fact two of her many summons. She landed right on top of the two of them and in a firework display of magic particles they vanished from the world and the green haired ace was no firmly seated on the ground and the sound of which make Kite’s ass hurt and her saying oww confirmed his guess that it did. ”You know when I said for the right woman would fall out of the sky this wasn’t the context that I meant.“ From her concrete seat Samira greeted Kite in a more formal manner than there needed to be but then again considering their last encounter it made absolute sense. She asked what brought him out to her guild and mentioned that both the guild master and his former teammate were not there. Kite took a slight step ”Well as it so happens I actually came her looking for you.“ he would lean down and extend his hand down for her to take. ”but the city floor is not a place for business to be conducted.“ he would wait for her to take his hand but speak as whether she accepted his hand or got up on her own, ”and it’s even less of a place for a woman like you to be sitting in the first place. Allow me to help you up.“ Once she was up he would give her as much time to compose herself before taking out the flyer with the job information. ”This was delivered this morning.“ he would allow her to read the information regarding the army being created by demons and the like in the cursed land. ”I don’t know where Silver wolf is located and Ryo is out on another job. I had the notion that since you and I were able to work well together in Beanstalk we could give it another shot.“ he gave a slight cough ”Also allow me to apologize for our last encounter and for what I had said.“ he lowered his ehad to show that he was in fact being sincere with apology. ”Would you be willing to give this... me a second chance?“

    Fortunately the comment regarding the right woman falling out of the sky had gone unheard thanks to Samira pretending that all was normal with her spectacular exit from the guild hall. Such a way with words could have annoyed the summoner indeed and make quite the bad start to their conversation. Her greeting seemed to have been taken well enough, although the man visiting the guild had mentioned he had come to the Lamia Scale guild hall looking for her. "For me?" That was certainly an interesting development. Well, almost. Part of her inner self cringed as she recalled why she wanted to avoid him at all costs to begin with. Surely as a guild master he wasn't so unprofessional as to stalk her all the way there just to flirt some more and bug her for a date? That uncomfortable fear had to be exaggerated just a tiny bit. Tiny. What other reason he was looking for her though she could not guess. The two had only met and worked together once. That was not exactly enough to consider them as friends of any sort so this wasn't that sort of visit either. As far as she was concerned the other two names she had mentioned a moment ago were more suited for business matters as well. It was a flaw in her personality. She had her rank within the guild as well as power to back it up, but she would always consider herself inferior and less significant when compared to others.

    Kite had also leaned down slightly, extending his hand out to her while mentioning the fact she was still on the ground. Oh... right. There was that other embarrassing detail. Very professional on her part! The cheeks of her face turned a couple of shades darker as they took on a more pink hue, but whether that was because she had overlooked the process of standing up or because his words were rather nice to hear no one would ever know. She had begun reaching her own hand out to allow herself to be helped up, but she brought it back a bit, hesitating to complete the action. Now she was all sorts of confused with how to react. It was easy to get annoyed and angry when she received meaningless flirtations and obvious pick up lines, but things got a little more difficult when it was done in a nice gentlemanly way. Samira couldn't even tell if he was being sincere with that or if what he just said to her could be categorized as a form of lying and exaggeration. She didn't know him very well at all so it was difficult to judge, and she hated it. Nevertheless, Samira convinced herself to take the helping hand anyway. Her hand reached out fully to connect with his and within a few quick moments she was back on her feet and standing. Then she quickly disconnected and took a couple of steps back to have some distance. "Thank you..." Now she felt very awkward and slightly guilty for maybe misjudging him completely. Maybe. Samira was that confused due to some events that happened in her life well before meeting the Sabertooth guildmaster. Her gaze shifted to the side and down towards the ground, and she had begun to run her hands through her long strands of hair. A nervous habit she had picked up some time ago. "You mentioned you came here looking for me?" A question asked to move the conversation along before her instincts convinced her to flee the scene.

    A flyer was given to her, one that had been delivered to him that very morning. That got her attention and focus to the point that she went back to her serious demeanor and forced the awkward feelings she had away for the moment. "This morning?" Her eyes switched back to him as they widened in surprise at hearing that. Huh, he was the type to actually not dilly dally and procrastinate. He was a guildmaster for a reason she supposed and not just because of power. Another misjudgement, but not one that made her feel awkward. Just ashamed really for her assumptions. That was quickly tossed aside as well into her forgotten feelings corner to deal with at another time. For now Samira took the flyer and began to look over its contents as she listened to Mr. Wilhelm speak more on the topic.

    From what she gathered it was a mission given by the council itself and she could see why. A demon army needed to be dealt with before disaster happened. Now things made a bit more sense. Their last meeting was during a monster swarm and all mages that took part in that were shown that they could deal with numerous enemies at a time. An army would not be all that difficult for any of them. The only problem she could see was that her experience with handling demons was nonexistent. Samira had dealt with dragons, monsters, cloned celestial spirits, different types of mages, dolls, but never demons. How much of an asset she would be she was uncertain, but it looked as if out of all allies that were involved in the Beanstalk Village attack she was the only one available or easily found. Although him mentioning that he did not know the location of Silver Wolf was amusing to her. Had she not needed the library that was in Hargeon that day he would have been out of luck with finding her as well.

    "That does make sense, but..." Samira had let her words trail off as he started to speak again after a slight awkward cough. She had intended to tell him about her inexperience with handling demons of any kind. It would be rude to interrupt though, wouldn't it? Especially when it was in the form of an apology. Another surprising trait she had not thought would come from him at all. Samira stared blankly at him as she tried processing it. If she actually had dreams she would have assumed the current encounter was one for it was all too unbelievable. Then he lowered his head and asked for a second chance. Someone else may have taken it entirely different than she did.

    There were a few seconds of silence after he had finished speaking. Then a sound came from Samira, one that indicated that she was attempting to hold back laughter. It was a failed attempt, however. A hand went to cover her mouth as she kept trying to suppress it. That did not work either. The laughter could not be contained and exploded from the woman until she was holding her sides. "I am sorry," she said in between breaths and random giggles. "It is just-" Another wave that prevented her from explaining properly.

    Assuming the Sabertooth guildmaster didn't take complete offense to his apology being laughed at, Samira would calm down with time and try to speak again. If he had turned to leave she would force herself to stop long enough to ask him to wait. Either way, she was wiping tears from her eyes while trying to get back to a normal breathing pattern. "Apologies for that." Another small giggle that escaped despite her intentions to stop completely. "I do not think I have ever received an apology for being flirted with before, and if I had it certainly was not like yours. Your words were the equivalent to one a man would use when asking a woman for a second chance at a serious romantic relationship because of a great error on his part. Your transgression was not that severe, and we certainly are not of that category of relationships. You went hilariously and unpredictably overboard. I did not expect it." Naturally the part where she was avoiding him the moment she found out he was within range of the guild was left out. He didn't need to know that. Samira already felt silly enough for doing so in the first place after getting such an apology.

    "As for this," she held up the flyer to try and bring back the conversation back to the reason he even came to Hargeon looking for her. "I have no experience dealing with demons. Had this mission been dealing with a different type of enemy I would be a lot more confident in my ability to help you with this." The flyer would then be handed back to him as if she were declining the request she come along. It was probably a scenario he had not expected. Given the apology he had assumed she would refuse based on the persona of himself he had displayed back in Beanstalk village. Samira had honestly worked with worse. Simple flirtations could easily be overlooked and dealt with in comparison so that was not it. Her declination on tagging along was because of her inexperience with that enemy type, and thus she considered herself a burden in that regard. She disliked bringing allies down for any reason when it concerned herself. There had to be someone else he could ask even if his trusted Ace was on another job and Leila's location was unknown. Her spirits remained quiet during the interaction and did not try to persuade her otherwise. Throughout everything she had been through since becoming a member of her guild she never did change the way she looked at herself. "Sorry, but for your sake I am going to have to decline, Mr. Wilhelm."

    It now seemed Kite would be having to spend a few moments convincing Samira to tag along with the mission. That or somehow getting her onto his ship before she could react and by result it being much too late to bother leaving. Either way, once she was successfully recruited the summoner would sigh deeply in exasperation while folding her arms across her chest. "I do hope you have a proper plan that does not include the phrase 'winging it.'"

    The Demon King

    ”“
    Kite had made a fair amount of effort to keep this meeting that he initiated as to the point as much as possible. He was keenly aware that him even speaking to her might make this conversation all sorts of uncomfortable for her but he couldn’t help but shoot his traditional smirk at her reaction when he said it was her that he was looking for. With a sharp nod he answered, ”Yes you.“ he said to add vocal confrontation. The moment of silence is what gave Kite the opportunity to lean down and make his remark about her being on the ground and offered his hand to assist her off the ground. He had made it a point to ignore the deep pink blush that now graced her cheeks, he wasn’t sure if it was his silver tongue or the fact that she didn’t realize she was still on the ground either way he focused on how she hesitated to accept his hand. He couldn’t help but wonder if whatever damage his initial flirting had done was something that couldn’t be so easily fixed with simple words or gestures of generic kindness. However all hope wasn’t completely lost, she would eventually place her hand into his and with a firm but not overly tight grip he would hold her hand to pull her up until she had her feet firmly under her. Once it was established that releasing her wouldn’t cause her to stumble or fall he did just that and it was no surprise that she not only broke contact as fast as he did but created some distance between them but did thank him for it. ”Don’t mention it.“ was all he could come up with since he didn’t want to risk subtracting from whatever progress he managed to make here with that simple gesture.

    Samira brought the conversation back to the main topic at hand by mentioning that he was there to see here,”Right. Yeah.“  he said snapping back to it but not so seamlessly, ”That’s right.I came here looking to take you out on a fun filled job.“ Once the flyer was in her hand he would let it do the majority of the talking, ”Yeah I don’t have all the details but what from what I was able to gather its easy to tell that I can’t handle it on my own. Hence why I sought you out.“ Once she was done he felt like it was the correct time to finally let loose the apology that had been nagging at the back of his head since he embarked to find her. Once he had finished with his apology and even bowed down the reaction he received was one that he wasn’t among the options he had calculated…. She was laughing. He looked up to see the green haired beauty had her hand pressed against her mouth to suppress her laughter but it had been for not for her laughter was still audible however had he not noticed soon enough she bursted out with so much laughter she had to hold her sides and apologized as best she could while she was laughing. He was rather dumbfounded to what was so funny, yeah he went a little over the top but was what he had done so worthy of such laughter but the answer to that would be answered once Samira calmed down and explained to him that his apology was the first of its kind that she had ever received for mere flirting and furthermore revealed his apology was akin to what a lover would say to his mate upon doing her wrong. He chuckled and rubbed the back of his head, ”Well to be fair I never considered having to apologize for such a thing and yet I still felt obligated to give it to you.“ Luckily for the both of them the focus was once again brought to the flyer in her hand to which she began to address her concerns with it. She explained she had absolutely no experience with dealing with demons and doubted her own ability to help him off this fact. What bugged him was that she mentioned it was for his sake that she didn’t tag along. Kite gently took the flyer back and pushed it into his pocket, ”You don’t have to be so formal with me. You can just call me Kite.“ he would state first before sighing, ”With someone of your ability handling demons would be a simple as a cake walk.“ he would pause for a moment. ”I would know. I have plenty of scars from demon and non demon beasts alike but if you don’t feel like you’re up for the ask then I won’t force the choice onto you.“ He take her hand and gently shake it, ”Thank you for your time. Have a good rest of your day Samira.“ he would about face and begin to walk back towards where he parked Tailspin but spoke to EDI, his ships AI, ”EDI spin up the engines and set course to the Lycan Woods. We are on our own.“ Kite walked a few steps but EDI had already prepared the ship and lowered it down so it was using the turbines on the wings to hover just above the street with the loading ramp lowered, “I was already listening.” Kite was about to give her an order Samira had let out a sigh and had her arms crossed over her chest stating that he had better have a proper plan and winging it doesn’t count. Kite gave a chuckle, ”Didn’t get that far yet. All I had was what little intel the council was able to give me. Up until now it was only me and no clue if you’d be onboard or not so coming up with a plan up until this point wouldn’t have benefited me.“ EDI would chime in, “Making up to you was much higher of a priority than make a plan.” Kite took a deep breath and looked up at EDI, ”Really EDI?“ The viewfinder moved to look at him, “Well You did.” Kite's glare faded and looked to Samira, ”Don't pay her any mind. Clearly there is a malfunction that I will have to BURN later.“ he looked up at her but then back down to her. ”But since you mentioned you have no idea what demons are about I will fill you in. but first EDI take us up and let's get moving.“ The ramp would raise and the ship would lift until it was high enough for the main engine to engage and propel them towards the cursed land. Kite would give a generic motion with his hand for Samira to follow him up to the upper deck of the ship scaling the cat walk in the process ”You see demons are like any other beast but they are as smart or smarter than most humans in the sense that they are more crafty with their words and strategy. Your run of the mill demons will rely on instinct more than others but once you hit Arch Demon tiers they are more methodical. Other than that holy magic and obviously Demon slayer magic do wonders to them but other than dealing with possession or exorcising them a mage of your caliber as well as your summons should be able to deal some serious hurt to their physical bodies.“ he would stop the moment he said something and look back at her, ”Having someone like you by my side certainly works out better for my sake than you might actually think.“

    Samira had been told that she didn't need to be so formal and was free to call the Sabertooth guild master by his first name. It was a relief for Samira really to have that allowance. Being formal took work, but given his leader position proper respect had to be given until told otherwise. Afterwards though she had a feeling the conversation was going to go into the realm of him convincing her to tag along. Bringing up her ability was more of a stab than a compliment, and for a second her neutral expression faltered to show it. Others relying on her because of ability and power was something she always considered a mistake. That sort of thing came from her spirits, not so much herself. She had recently unlocked more abilities for herself after reaching a certain point in whatever destiny timeline that was set up for her an age and a half ago, but there was little experience with using them all. Then there were other things no one was aware of except for herself and the spirits connected with her. Many complications could come up that would make her more of an enemy than an ally. Overthinking things just a bit? Probably. Her inferiority complex did not really help either. So many excuses for turning down the job offer could be made and Kite's past flirtatious attitude was at the very bottom of the list.

    Her expectations on him trying to persuade her to take the offer were proven to be false, much to her surprise. He mentioned not forcing the choice onto her and that just caused her to blink a few times as she looked at him while also repeating those words in her head to confirm that it had been accurate. "Wait, you are not-?" Before she could get the words out he had already taken hold of her hand to shake it and thank her for her time. Naturally telling her to have a good rest of her day was also added in. He was going off to fight a demon army, and she was staying nice and cozy in the Lamia Scale guild hall. Somehow telling him "you have a good day too" seemed a bit out of place. "Right... good luck," she replied softly as he turned to leave. Samira did feel somewhat bad for having to decline. The mission was a complicated one and even on paper it sounded dangerous. However, as she watched him begin to leave she was firm in her belief that she was doing him a favor. There had to be someone else more fitting as a partner for the job.

    'Nope. There's no one else.'
    'Ditto.'
    'No one at all, girlie.'
    "And what makes you all draw that conclusion?" The summoner asked of the spirits that were in her head and had been hearing and watching everything from Samira's point of view.

    'Because you're always asked dead last when it comes to things like this.'
    'Is true.'
    'Pathetic.'
    'He did mention his Ace and the Silver Wolf leader before you so there is some truth to this.'
    'Psh, so much for that cake walk, huh? More like he got stuck with you and anything is better than nothing. Well, so long as they don't die by a simple poke like all of those crummy weaklings walking around.'

    "I was not last. I doubt he has asked all the other high ranking mages of Fiore."
    'Yeah, because knocking on the door of every mage known in Fiore and asking them to go on a suicidal mission isn't weird at all. He apparently only considered those that were in that monster swarm. He even just now said that he was on his own. The guy must be a real loner to have no other connections. Sad. Well, was nice knowing him for those five minutes. He'll look pretty in one of those glorified worm food containers.'

    And so back to the impulse to act before Kite had truly left. It was ridiculous. The spirits had a point. He had been dead set on either her coming along or going in all alone regardless of all the other powerful and notable mages that might have tagged along if asked. That was just madness! Why was it that she always ended up as a sense of reason when paired up with another? She wouldn't be staying up at night with worry on whether he was okay or not. They didn't know each other well enough for that sort of thing. However, it would be a lie to say if word came back that he had failed and died during the mission that she wouldn't feel guilty about letting it happen in the first place. That left one possible solution to save her future self from such a thing: tag along and ensure he didn't get himself killed. Facing an entire demon army alone with god knows what as its commander. Insane!

    The answer given towards her question of a plan was almost facepalm worthy. Almost. He actually didn't say they would be winging it thankfully, but there was no plan made at all. Step one had been asking her to come along. Depending on how that went then a plan would be made. "I see." Then something else decided to chime in to state that making up with her was a higher priority. Samira wasn't really that knowledgeable when it came to ship technology, but she had seen talking mechanisms inside them before. EDI must have been another one of that kind. She stayed silent and stared rather blankly as Kite interacted with EDI. If it had not been regarding her she might have laughed a bit. "It really was not that bad..." She was only made uncomfortable back then and earlier when he arrived because she disliked flirtations. He may as well have accidentally killed her nonexistent puppy with the way he had prioritized the apology.

    A simple nod was given when he stated he'd fill her in on demonic details. Up the ramp and into the ship she went and with the gesture to continue following she did so. She listened carefully and remained focused so as not to be rude and to gain the information she needed to be more useful. The explanation made them sound not too different from what she was used to. There were monsters that could be just as crafty and had powers that may have been unknown. It generally depended on the species and just how old they were since the ancient ones had many variables. The ones on Pandora being an example of that. Still, she was sure demons were on a much more higher scale of dangerous, especially for the higher tiered ones, and that was without going into worrying about exorcism and possession. Now if only she had demon slayer magic or even anything that was holy. The closest she got was her spirit of the light element. At least that one was also one of the more powerful ones.

    Samira remained silent even as he came to pause his words. Her head tilted slightly, wondering why he had done so. He spoke again, stating having someone like her around was better for his sake then she had originally thought. A reversal of her own words when she had said her refusal to come along was better for him. Once again an unintentional stab. Compliments were something she just did not take well when it came to her ability. He was already setting high expectations she wasn't sure she could fulfill. "Careful. Overestimating people can be unwise. I guess we will find out soon enough which of us is right when it comes to my case." Words said as her lips formed into a small smile to hide the fact she was actually worried by what sort of standards he actually had for her. They had only seen each other's fighting ability once. Briefly. However, she did not want to argue. He was set with his line of thinking and she was now already onboard. There was little point to debate. They either came back alive, or they didn't.

    From there she decided to move along and keep walking, expecting him to follow along. Weird considering she had no idea where she was going and it was his ship, but it felt awkward to just stand there while that sort of conversation was going on. "I suppose it is rather obvious that I lack demon slayer magic. Hurting their physical bodies can only go so far as well. That may work for whatever this army has for its frontlines, but I have my doubts on the hack and slash tactic working against those that fill the roles of its captains and officers. Even less so when it comes to the leader. I do have other spirits that may be beneficial as far as support and utility are concerned, so that is a silver lining at least." If there was anything she did have it was utility, or so she had been told on many occasions. That was far from satisfying back in her lower rank days since she preferred being powerful enough like others to completely skip over that. Currently she was glad for it. There were too many unknowns with the job Kite had been given by the Magic Council, and since it was not an army of monsters that relied on instinct like before they may be needing to get a bit more clever with their strategy.

    "I also suggest unless we want to go in swinging, which I do not advise given the circumstances, that we land before even reaching the land these demons have claimed. It is a bit too obvious and makes us targets instantly. We would be fighting blind. Unless..." Samira's eyes narrowed and her eyebrows twitched just thinking about the other suggestion she had. It was almost ridiculous with how many times it actually worked in the past. "Unless a good portion of the army gets blown up first. I could tell you stories on how many times that has worked when it should not have. I still to this day do not comprehend how. All logic had been defied. In essence, because of past experiences I have learned that if you lack a plan or are out of ideas, just blow things up." A suggestion that might have been surprising for the Sabertooth guild master to hear from her. It was hard for her to even say it in the first place. But... it was there and usually worked.

    Meanwhile the hyperactive and quirky spirit from earlier had decided to pop into the mortal realm once more. Rarely was she used for combat, and rarely was she even summoned intentionally. A girl spirit has to get out as much as she could! That meant defying a certain summoner whenever she wanted. She poofed into existence near the duo but remained quiet, and her invisibility had made her unseen. As far as she knew anyway. Samira was distracted with listening to the man speak and had not noticed her. Whether the other could sense her or not she also was not sure about. Serqet, the spirit with the golden scorpion tail followed along, her plan being to scurry off elsewhere the first chance she got so she could explore the ship and most likely cause much chaos by pushing random buttons and interacting with other things. Then she overheard Samira's suggestion. "Blowing things up is bad. Someone could get hurt, you know!"

    Oh... whatever cover she had, had been blown. Whatever. Her invisibility disappeared and she latched onto Samira from behind and embraced her tightly. Meanwhile her tail swerved over in Kite's direction and was held up in the air for him to take as if she were offering her hand to shake. "Hi! I'm Serqet!" A giant grin was on her face and could only be matched by the deep frown that was on the summoner's face. "I'm sure you've heard all about me by now and how positively awesome I am!"

    "Awesome is an understatement, and not in the good way."

    "Heeeyyy. That's mean!" No matter. The spirit with the short attention span was near instantly happy again and was back with her focus on Kite. "Your name is 'Kite', right? That's a funny name honestly..."
    "Serqet..."

    The spirit did not seem to hear Samira, that or most likely was ignoring her. Whichever one did not matter. She released the green haired woman from the hug and quickly moved so she was standing face to face with Kite. "Hey! If I tie a string to you and threw you off the ship would you fly? Come on! Lets try it out!"
    "He is not a literal kite!"
    Serqet stepped back a bit as she turned her head to look at Samira with confused and innocent blinks of her eyes. Then she turned back and leaned in towards Kite with her hand at the side of her mouth to whisper. "If you want to see if she can fly instead I'll help. She's awful to deal with when cranky. Save yourself now."
    "I AM NOT CRANKY!" The spirit that had shown up randomly was then force dismissed, her form turning into a swirl of purple colored magic particles. "Awwww," could be heard until it faded away as well.

    Samira calmed herself down while attempting to force away the headache she was now getting before speaking again. Twice in one day the ridiculous spirit had decided to make things worse and very awkward. With a small sigh she went back to her normal demeanor. "That is an example of what you have to look forward to. Have you changed your mind yet?"
