    An Unfortunate Fortune (Open)

    Post by Elvira Arcade on Sat 12 May - 0:57

    Hosenka's night sky was bright and beautiful, the lights which radiated from the hotels, spas and casinos drifted upwards and washed the small gravestone-covered hill in a rainbow of luminance. Elvira, the beautiful young woman in a purple kimono standing in front of a small stone grave with her bags packed, was used to the spectacle. She reached down and felt for the small leather case strapped to her thigh and sighed for probably the 30th time.

    "You'd better be right old lady, you know guilds were never my style." She remarked, glancing at the grave with a raised eyebrow.

    She noticed the graveyard's other living occupants begin to whisper to each other while pointing upwards and turned to look. Glimmering between the peaks of the mountains a flying city drifted on the wind, easily visible against the dark sky as it descended through the clouds towards the massive lake between Hosenka and Magnolia.

    "They're here old lady...see you." She whispered, hefting her bags and turning to walk down the hill toward the carriage she'd arranged for.

    It was dawn by the time she arrived at the lake, passing by cheerful residents of the sky ship presumably on their way to enjoy themselves in the resort community that had been her home. The ship itself floated like an island in the lake, walkways extended to allow it's residents to depart. It looked almost like a swan from this angle; a big, ugly, swan with buildings on it's back. This is a terrible idea she thought again, forcing herself to make her way up one of the walkways. The guild hall was in the center of town she imagined as she headed off in that direction.

    One such person rushing to exit the ship and explore the surroundings was a young man dressed in a comfy and worn black looking track suit with a light teal scarf tied around his neck. His inky hair fluttered around his forehead in the breeze, pushing away from some of the iciest blue eyes some had ever witnessed. His dusty brown explorer's boots clomped down the walkway, in a rush to recon a spa for a potential date spot before he was caught.

    However, it seemed this wasn't in the cards for Theo. The helpful jello mage noticed someone going against the flow of feet carrying some bags. Well, he noticed after he'd already passed said person, since sometimes it took a few extra seconds for information to process through his chaotic thought processes. It was the purple kimono that caught his eye, a type of garb he hadn't seen in a while. Whirling on his heel in one fluid motion, he jogged back to catch up with the young woman, nearly losing his balance after he collided elbows with another guild mate making a break for the exit.

    "Yo!" he called, spinning into her field of view. Never graceful, Theo. Regardless of his smarting shoulder, a grin spread out across his mouth as he precariously walked backward in front of the person obviously moving onto the Crystalli. "New here?" he asked dumbly, since it was obvious that was the case. What else does someone say when meeting someone and wanting to be helpful? "I'm Theo. I can help you out if you need it," he offered, just before he pushed his luck too far and tripped backward to splay out on the path toward the guild hall.

    Elvira watched the strange boy bumble his way in front of her and topple over. She tilted her head to the side for a moment and took him in. Thin, no, scrappy perhaps. His dusty boots and track suit betrayed him as someone more interested in activity than style. He was cute enough she supposed, though seemingly not very sharp. However, since he had offered to help, and she did need to find the guild hall she saw no harm in indulging him for a while.

    "Yo" she replied, attempting to mask her apparent displeasure with the greeting.

    "I'm looking for the Crystal Swan guild hall could you direct me?" She asked, giving a convincing performance as a helpless damsel.

    oud groaning. It was all that could be heard as the pink haired maiden retreated from the just landed ship. Gosh... This motion sickness from the landing was going to kill her one of these days. Why was it that only occurred when the ship was landing? That was one of the most exciting parts of being on the flying aircraft! But she missed it every single time because she was hunched over somewhere feeling like she would hurl at any moment! Boy was it frustrating! Pushing her way through the crowd of people, she attempted to find a place that she could sit, and possibly get a drink that would calm the dreadful feeling in her stomach. The crowd was a sea, and she was drowning. How was there this many people on this ship anyways?! It didn't seem like it was this crowded when they were actually on it! Oh gosh. And there were people walking towards it as well?! She hadn't anticipated that!

    "L-Look out!" The cry came too late... Before she could stop it, Rin had crashed into a random civilian, knocking them and herself to the ground. How was it that she was always so clumsy? Every time she found her way off of the Crystalli, it seemed that she would make some sort of a mess. Whether it be a mess of limbs or something else! "I-I-I'm so sorry, ma'am! P-Please forgive m-" Smacking the poor girl with the fan she was carrying, the older woman let out a hmph! before brushing herself off and continuing onwards towards the docked aircraft. Well... That was a shame... Wait... Looking over to her right, she noticed a familiar, awkward looking goof on the floor. "Oh hey, Theo." She giggled, lifting herself off the floor in an attempt to not look like such a loser. It was strange that this was a normal occurrence, but both of them were really clumsy... So...

    Just as she was about to approach the black haired male and help him up, Rin noticed someone that stood out. A woman with short, brown hair wearing a striking purple kimono. It had been a while since Rin had worn one! Eyes sparkling with excitement, the young girl approached the pretty lady, hand outstretched for her to shake. "H-Hi there! My name is Rin Mayou! U-Um... I really like your kimono! Wh-Where did you get it?" It was a little awkward, considering she had just taken a nose-dive to the pavement seconds ago, but she hoped that the woman in question wouldn't judge her too much for it! "A-Are you here to visit the Crystalli?"

    Elvira turned to face the newcomer, occasionally giving a sideways glance at the people bumping into her on their way out. This girl seemed even younger than the boy, although equally clumsy. She could only hope the actual members of the guild were older and more...coordinated. She reached out and gently took the girl's hand, giving it a gentle shake.

    "Hello Rin, my name is Elvira, Elvira Arcade." She said said with a slight smile. "The kimono is from Hosenka, the nearby resort. Many people wear them there to sort of...fit with the aesthetic." She spared a glance for the boy struggling to his feet before returning her piercing golden gaze to Rin. "The Crystalli is the name of the ship yes? Then I am indeed here to visit. I need to speak with someone from Crystal Swan." She gently ushered the pair of teens out of foot traffic as she spoke.

    Funny thing about relationships. They don't make you blind. He'd almost prefer to be blind, since his view from the ground had only made a certain feature on the stranger's body stand out even more, almost obscuring her face completely at this angle! Being a man with a critical eye, it was hard to make himself not notice...especially since his girlfriend just showed up! Eyes purposefully angled down, he did indeed scramble back to his feet. Eyes on eyes. Eyes only on eyes. "Elvira, huh?" he repeated, letting that name settle in his brain. Peculiar enough to leave an impression. "I'm Theo Silversong," the young man returned, giving her a polite bow of the head instead of a handshake. He hadn't made the best impression, so for some reason a handshake seemed weird now.

    "We're from Crystal Swan," Theo chimed in soon after the introductions were finalized, shoving both his hands in the pockets of his jersey pants since he didn't know what to do with them. His glacier hues shifted from the golden ones of Elvira to the rose tinted mahogany ones he favored so much. Their relationship was still a bit new, so he wasn't sure if it was cool to just reach out and take her hand in front of a potential new recruit. He was easily distracted, and this time was no different. A dopey grin slid onto his face as he looked at Rin, but thankfully he shook himself out of it and back to the task at hand. "Ah..So...let's head this way to the guild hall. You can ask us anything you want to know on the way."

    Elvira watched with amusement as the boy's expression shifted slightly from her chest to the other girl. It was obvious Theo has some sort of attachment to Rin, although what it was exactly would take more time to discern. They could almost be related she mused, both clumsy and cute in an innocent sort of way. When Theo revealed that they were both members of Crystal Swan she didn't know what to think. This must be that spiteful old woman's final prank, a parting indignity as she slipped from the world. "You'll find your home on the city in the sky" she recalled the woman saying in that gravely voice...what a joke.

    She realized they had been walking for some time and quickly searched her memory for the events she'd tuned out over the past several minutes.

    "Questions? Well, how does one join the guild I suppose?" She said, glancing around. "And where can I find a room to stay?"

    hy was Theo acting so strangely all of a sudden? All she had done was introduce herself! Perhaps she had done something wrong? Maybe the handshake was too forward? Oh gosh... Why was she starting to panic all of a sudden? Everything seemed to be fine! The pretty lady, now identified as Elvira, seemed to be in an okay mood. Perhaps a bit irritated, but that was to be expected when the both of them were such clumsy goofs.

    As they began to walk back towards the ship once more, Rin smiled as she listened to Elvira speak. It was great to have a new recruit to the guild! Crystal Swan was growing larger and larger every day! It was so exciting! "Well... I'm not exactly sure how to join... Heheheh... I literally ran into the guild master, and she just showed me around... She gave me my guild mark as well. But um... Obviously you wouldn't run into her just to join..." A blush spread across the young girl's cheeks as she spoke, a bit embarrassed by the memories of her first time on the Crystalli. Desirée had been so kind to her, and even offered to be her mentor! But gosh, she could have done without crashing into her on her first day! "B-But you could probably get Lester to give you your guild mark! He's an ace now, so he can do it! As for a place to stay, we could help you find something! If not you can just stay with me for the night! I don't bite!" It probably wouldn't have to come to that, but it was best to offer, just in case!

    "Lester hm? Could you introduce me then? I'd like to get this over with." Her response was to Rin's first answer but truthfully she was much more interested in Rin's second: "...you can just stay with me for the night!" She repeated to herself.

    Elvira hadn't known how much she hated living by herself until the old lady went. It reminded her of the boat; of the fear and isolation. Maybe that was why she'd continued to live in their cramped apartment, constantly bickering with the woman, even after she could've easily afforded to move out. Damn it, she wished she'd told her when she could've. Babs had been gone less than a week and it felt like an eternity. Not just because of the sorrow she secretly felt over the loss, but also the pain she felt at being alone again.

    "Oh could I stay with you for the night?"
    She asked Rin cheerfully. "It'd be fun to get to know my new guildmate!" --it was the first excuse she could think of.

    They seemed to be approaching a rather impressive looking building in the center of the city which she assumed was the guildhall. Elvira cracked a smile as they walked. It was fun watching the two of them, though she'd never admit it. The way Theo's fingers slowly opened and closed as Rin's hand swung back and forth beside his own. Dating it is then, she decided, but freshly so. It was probably a first for both of them.

    On a whim Elvira decided to play cupid, waiting for just the right moment when there were no obstructions on the road and no people too close --doing this wrong would likely result in the pair of awkward teens laying in a pile on the street, although that could be fun too. Like an expert archer she took aim and nudged Rin, disguising it as a misstep, to push her hand up against Theo's.

    Theo, never one to pass up an opportunity, closed his fingers around Rin's hand as it touched his like a thief would a freshly snatched treasure. With a light blush he smiled to himself and glanced at the peachy girl beside him, the one who was now having a sleepover at her place and he wasn't invited. Maybe he and Lester should have a sleepover, too. Lester always had the best food and sweets. He should ask him if they ran into him in the guild hall.

    They lead Elvira the rest of the way to the guild hall, which wasn't far, honestly. It was beautiful in its architecture, just like the whole ship-city was. It displayed the guild aesthetic well, artistry and refinement. Music lilted from inside, and the countless plants all around were healthy and thriving, thanks to the aforementioned ace's careful tending. "Here it is!" Theo announced, throwing his free hand out as if he was a tour guide. "What's super cool, other than literally everything, is that once you join, you get a room that is completely customizable to your tastes. It's got an ilac thing to make choices from with pictures. And you can change it when you get bored," the young man rattled off, still infatuated with his room, since it was the first upgrade from homelessness. "I think you'll like it here." The guild was a very comfortable fit, and he hoped the same for Elvira.

    Elvira let the young couple lead her inside the impressive ,if somewhat gaudy, guildhall. It reminded her of the Pitcher in a way, slightly less garish perhaps, but there was something about it that...insisted on itself. Still she couldn't help but be impressed by it's pristine interior filled with pools, flowers, and of course, the bar. As her eyes drifted over the large lower floor she lingered longest on the piano or was it simply an aquarium? She hoped it was functional.

    She listened to Theo rattle on about their rooms and couldn't help but smile, a genuine smile. There was something refreshing about his excitability. It made her excited in a way she hadn't been in a long time. Eventually she managed to postpone the tour long enough to tap one of the veterans sitting at the bar.

    "Is um...Lester around?"

    "He's upstairs." the man said. "Looking to join eh?"

    "That's right." She replied with a nod of her head. "Thanks." She turned and started heading for the direction of the staircase before being abruptly stopped.

    "Whooooooa, slow down there missy, not even we're allowed up there!" The man shouted after her, interrupting Theo and Rin, who were about to jump in front of her as well.

    "Oh...." She said, furrowing her brow. "Then how am I supposed to see him?" She inquired. The man rubbed his chin for a moment before inhaling sharply.

    "LEESSTTEERR."
