    Over the years she had spent as nothing but a homeless nomadic runaway, it was impossible for her to have escaped hearing stories from across many lands. One of the stories she had heard all those years ago, long before she settled with Black Rose, was the reason she was out today. In Fiore, there was a castle where people just vanished if they entered its grounds, rumored to be haunted among other things. Across her young years as a frightened runaway, she had avoided this area in order to remain safe from whatever spooky thing was whisking people off in that shady land. She had possessed incredibly trigger happy survival instincts at one time, she had always been wild but at that time she had been so with the intention of simply surviving until she could kill the only person she had any interest in.

    So much time had passed and even if she often refused to admit it the changes that came with time, no one could deny it had made her more powerful and bold. While she had never needed strength for confidence? She had also never been dim enough to run into somewhere like that weak as she once had been. After all, her death wish was a relatively new feature. Due to certain events that had recently taken place, the wind witch was willing to do almost anything regardless of how dangerous that activity may be. Obviously, the canine didn't go out of her way to pursue things with that level of danger, but if the opportunity presented itself she could no longer turn it down anymore.

    Opportunity had come knocking several nights before when she found people in need of an escort through the woodland surrounding the castle. Over the last few days? She had guided an exceptionally large group through the thick woods nearby, completing her mission successfully. Once her mission had been completed? Jiyu decided she would finally approach the grounds of that castle on her own so she could attempt to explore the confines of it. What did she have to lose anyway? She didn't even know who she really was anymore. This would be an exceptionally fun exploration!

    For what reason normal people and mages alike came to a place known as the "Haunted Castle" varied with each individual and group. Some were curious, some wanted the thrill of spook hunts, and others may have had a more serious and logical reason. An investigation. A hunt. A job. Most of these leading to the disappearances of many and therefore creating the tales of the infamous castle. Tales that a certain summoner was aware of but paid no mind to them. Not so much that she had developed a cocky attitude and thought such things were none to worry about, but rather in comparison to her normal routine investigating a haunted castle was considered as a simpliar task in general.

    So comes the reason an ace of the guild Lamia Scale was in the area. A fantastic job to kill time. Sort of. The client of her current mission had plans to turn the castle into a fancy get away spot for tourists. The only issue being the obvious hauntings and disappearances the place was known for. Not the best description detail to have on the advertising pamphlet, and so naturally a simple solution had been thought of and put into action: let a mage handle it. So simple that some had to wonder why that was never thought of in the first place. A sarcastic thought that ran through her mind at the time, and even more so as she made her way to the location of the castle.

    So why had she taken the job? Simple. It wasn't necessarily by choice. It had been a request. Somehow some people thought those within a monster hunting guild should have been able to handle ghosts as well, the current client included. A strange assumption for the Ace who rarely had any encounters with "hauntings". Even stranger was that instead of the client going to a mage more capable of handling ghosts and the great beyond they had requested her instead. The name and status being an obvious reason she could assume, but there had to be another reason than something so trivial as that. Her best guess was no research had been done and they had thought that her magic consisted of controlling supernatural spirits instead of celestial ones, assuming the client even knew the difference. Did they assume the keys were traps to be thrown at a wild spirit for capture? Then thrown again to release them for battle? What a silly thought. Nonetheless, Samira had decided to humor them and investigate the so called haunted castle, and find out if the rumors were true. Perhaps even clear it of any and all hauntings. Not likely, but she would at least take a look around. If she didn't disappear off the face of the world then there was a chance she could walk out with something interesting. Or at the very least something interesting to write down in her journal.

    By the time the canine girl had approached the grounds for her own adventure and exploration of the castle, Samira was already at the ludicrously tall gates that stood in front of the castle. Chained shut by magically altered chains to keep all those pesky adventurers away and from adding more names onto the list of missing persons. That wasn't an issue at all really. One could simply pass over the stone wall that was next to the gate and worked itself around the grounds, or be like her and use a simple portal. She pretty much had permission to enter, right? Although what stood out the most aside from some woman that looked more ready to visit a mall than to go on a stroll through a haunted castle was the fact that she appeared to be talking to herself, or her best invisible friend. The communication was actually with her un-summoned spirits, but not many were able to pick up on that and automatically assumed she was a little strange.

    "No, it is not trespassing. I was given permission to be here." Samira said, seemingly to herself as she grabbed onto the magic chains to confirm that they were indeed still locked up and could not just be undone.

    "Well... I actually did not confirm if the client bought the property or not actually. I would assume so... even then it is logical to assume that there is no true owner." A short moment of silence followed as she listened to the response that was told inside her mind. She sighed. "I think you are mistaken with that theory. Just because you are a celestial spirit does not mean you will be able to lure out the supernatural ones and become friends. That is if there even is a haunting to begin with." There were doubts on whatever was happening with the castle being a legit haunting, but she supposed she would find out soon enough. Thus far, she was completely oblivious to the fact another mage was nearby.

    Most people who had achieved great heights in the magic world would indeed view something like 'haunted houses' as something that was beneath the difficulty of the tasks they normally encountered or such. Often when someone had the strength to face down monsters of all sorts and come through victorious with little to no effort? They forgot that not everything was the same and the experience to punch some dragon out of the sky may not translate at all to punching some banshee. Jiyu was always aware of things like that, the fact no matter how strong she grew that it would never be enough, somewhere she would always have weak spots that could tear into her. Being afraid of the dark and things like fire? Entering somewhere like a haunted house was just asking for trouble. As pointed out earlier, she had somewhat of a death wish.

    The wind mage had heard rumors that someone was planning to attempt turning the castle into some getaway for tourists to fiore, but she hadn't paid much heed to those rumors. After centuries of hauntings? Jiyu doubted anyone would be able to break the 'curse' covering the building. Honestly, the appeal for her in this was surviving! Jiyu had no wish for greatness, no wish to save anyone, nothing like that, she just wanted to get in, get spirited away and stay for a while before getting out. It wouldn't be the first time she realm traveled and as an Inugami she was vastly safer than most others in this sort of situation. After all, she belonged in a haunted house considering she was born from the desire for revenge.

    The female looked forward, her mismatched optics unable to see Samira but her ears and nose could detect the other mage. At the moment? She chose not to reveal herself, taking to the trees in order to conceal herself. Until she knew why that other mage was here, it was best to stay out of the way since she wasn't supposed to be here on an official level but she was also not explicitly barred either. Large blue furry ears perked forward listening carefully to every little heartbeat as her brain tried to process why the other female could be standing there. Without much wait, it was easy to deduce that the other mage was entering the castle for her own reasons. Ending up alone in this exploration? Had been her original goal but now that she actually thought it over, Jiyu much more liked the idea of potentially having someone else alongside her. If there was no source of light within the castle or such? She would be in trouble on her own.

    "Mind company on your exploration of the grounds?" the female leaped down from the tree's, floating down to stand beside the other, turning her gaze after she landed. Seeing the other mage clearly, it was now fairly easy to guess who she was, considering she had some friends within the ranking of saints the mage now bothered knowing who they were. Of course, Jiyu couldn't remember which saint this other mage was exactly, just who she wasn't. Oh well, it wasn't important to remember who someone was anyways unless she could use them. "Cause I'm going in either way." often times it would be easy for people to think Jiyu was on some sort of power trip or overconfident due to how reckless she was. However, in this situation that was clearly not the case! The other present mage was more powerful than she was if they fought it was possible she would take the short straw, but even than she wouldn't be stopped, she couldn't power her way in this just use the insane persistence that had kept her hunting for one man for over a decade. "I could be actually quite beneficial if your here to accomplish some specific task." she didn't believe this place could be cleansed, but the Inugami knew she could navigate the social spectrum of ghosts and ghouls long enough to aid another mage in finding an item or something. "Though I can tell you if your working for that rich idiot who wants to turn this into a hotel or something, you're on a fool's errand." which was the only reason she could see someone sane coming to this place! Why else would someone want to explore somewhere so dangerous unless they were insane as she was turning? "I doubt it's even still the original castle but instead a pocket dimension like trap visible or merged to our realm constructed by the trapped spirits in order to lure and trap other's to exact their revenge or malice." which was why she was sure she could escape, she could realm hop to a realm that belonged to her. Most of the poor souls who had ended up trapped in that place? Surely did not have the benefit of being in control of an entire realm where they could retreat to, being a master of negative, malicious and vengeful energy to avoid getting consumed by the energy in that place. "Heck if I was you, I'd consider if someone wanted me dead if someone sent me here. Of course, if it was me said person would be foolish for thinking they could trap and destroy me within such a place." heck entering this place would likely only make her stronger!

    With the confirmation that the gate was indeed locked and chained tightly Samira had concluded that she would just get through it magically. Already she had been reaching down to the golden key ring attached to her hip with the intention of claiming the key that belonged to her portal spirit. No simple gate or stone wall was going to stop her! Maybe. Possibly. She wouldn't really know for a few moments longer. The voice of a woman had called out suddenly, and the slight rustling of the leaves of a tree followed. It served as a little more than a distraction from the current task of breaking in entering the castle's grounds. Others of her station might have always been aware and at the ready for a counter strike should any surprises come along. For Samira, it was more of a mini heart attack. So focused was she that the presence of another had gone unnoticed entirely, magic aura and all, and it was then that she realized she had let her guard down. A peculiar trait for someone in a monster hunting guild, but then, she had not expected to run into anything remotely dangerous in the first place, let alone another person in an abandoned castle.

    Samira had made a small cry of alarm as she quickly turned to face the direction of the voice. Upon seeing someone that looked relatively normal instead of some monstrous thing that she would have to eliminate the green-haired woman placed a hand over her chest where her heart was and sighed in relief to calm herself down. The one that had suddenly appeared was not the first girl she had seen with some animal-like traits. Not at all. So, nothing new or strange in that department so it was quickly overlooked by her. What was very noticeable was the rather large tattoo on the other's stomach, one that marked the guild of Black Rose. The summoner frowned a bit, possibly because of the stranger's choice of attire that she wouldn't dare wear herself, but mainly because thus far her experiences with mages of Black Rose were odd. Her eyebrows twitched slightly as she recalled the living doll Sakura and their visit to the strange doll shop. Then there was that other strange girl by the name of Charlotte and whatever strange world it was she had been taken to. Actually, now that she recalled those two events both of those mages had been met during times she was breaking into a building, much like currently with the castle. Were black Rose mages secretly always aware of break ins and so had a goal to make things as awkward and strange as possible as punishment to trespassers? Her experiences were beginning to tell Samira this was the case even if it was absolutely ridiculous to think it.

    "Nearly giving others a heart attack is generally not the best opening to a conversation, or to inquire about tagging along." Strange it was that the other woman had not even gone into why she was there or even introducing herself before offering herself to be a companion. Introductions were important, and she didn't even know who... oh... that's right. For a moment Samira had forgotten that people may know who she was just by looking at her by that point. Not even her guild mark was needed to be shown as evidence to her legal mage status with the Saint title hovering around her constantly. The label was still not one she was accustomed to, and one she didn't expect to ever get fully comfortable with. "Weeelll..." The green eyes on her face looked towards the side. The girl that had yet to fully introduce herself had stated she could be beneficial. Maybe she knew the castle's layout or something, which indeed would be helpful. Then she was smacked with the second opinion that her client's goal was possibly a bit foolish and that she was wasting her time completely. Samira let out another sigh, this time of hopelessness. "I had expected as much, but yes, that is why I am here. At the very least I was going to investigate and then report back my findings. Hauntings are not something I am experienced in dealing with, although I had assumed it to be greatly exaggerated. Past "hauntings" that I have run into ended up being that case." The theory of the castle being more of a pocket dimension instead of the castle it used to be did make some sense based on some stories she knew and read, but whether that was factual she did not know. It was not her area of expertise, but perhaps it was hers. Had that been why she was willing to just waltz into the castle for seemingly no reason that Samira was yet aware of? Or was she just very over-confident?

    "I do not believe that I have made such enemies that would take the time to lure me here." A statement she believed even if she had been personally requested to investigate. It was just the result of having a foolish client. As far as Samira knew, she had no actual enemies that would target her specifically. "But I will take your words about it under advisement for the future. For now, I assume that what you meant by you being beneficial is because of you being able to handle whatever is inside, correct? If there are any spirits and a haunting I mean."

    Following that Samira thought it best to actually get full introductions out of the way if they were to be going into the castle together. She would not turn down the offer of the company or aid. Just a moment before the girl had claimed she was going to go in anyway, and it wasn't her job to force someone to leave on account of it possibly being too dangerous. Not that it would really be considered as dangerous if the girl's confidence in her abilities was accurate and not all smoke. "Since we are both going in either way we may as well stick together since you did offer. I am Samira Nassar of Lamia Scale." The titles of Ace and Saint were neglected and not mentioned, her considering them to be redundant at that moment. It was likely obvious who she was, but what she wanted to know was who the young woman that was standing beside her was. There had been a memory of a Rising Star with such a tattoo placement with the same size and coloring, but everything else did not seem to match what she recalled of that one. Perhaps they knew eachother and had taken on identical tattoos. Well, maybe she would find out in another moment or so. With a small smile, Samira extended her hand for a formal handshake, as was common in greetings and introductions. Although, most may have considered such a thing as too formal. Was this also one that preferred hugs? She never could tell. It'd be weird to ask, right? What a dilemma. "And you are?"

    For someone of such high social status, this chick was very much an airhead, but Jiyu could barely speak she was also very far from what she appeared to be in the public eye. If you asked anyone in the public, in some village she'd worked in or such? They would easily call her reliable, honest, heroic even. However, anyone who got to know her long enough knew she was anything but, she was a creature made of the desire for revenge, masquerading as valiant for reasons even she didn't understand. What people took as reliable work, was no more than her sating some whim that had passed her fancy, entirely selfish in nature. Even when she seemed to help someone for no reason? It always had some benefit for her, even if that plus side was simply entertainment or something trivial like that. Not to mention things like the gambling habit she kept well under wraps. Heck, she fed on the very things she went around stopping as a legal mage.

    Black rose mages were not always secretly aware of break-ins, but some of them like Jiyu did do things less savory than the public believed. Thus showing up when someone was trying to break in somewhere? Was not odd for the wind user, it was a side effect of being part of the mafia sometimes. Making things awkward and strange was just another way to keep the other party from asking what she was doing there in the first place. "Do I Look Like I Care?" she spoke expressively, with her fangs showing slightly in a grin, an eyebrow cocked up in question, her voice carrying laughter as her tail swayed back and forth lightly. Even if she didn't have a rough idea of who she was dealing with from the fact the other was a wizard saint? Jiyu would have behaved the exact same way, she didn't care about who someone was, and secretly she sometimes believed it was better people didn't know who she was. Considering she was coming here for her own joy ride or death wish? Why would she want the other knowing more than absolutely necessary about her?

    Someone was definitely trying to kill this girl, sending her to deal with some haunting when she had no clue the first thing about hauntings. How could the other chick not see that this was an attempt on her life? "As I said, you're in luck, one could call me a living haunting of sorts." she certainly wasn't undead, she had a beating heart and everything else in spite of her prior death that she barely remembered. "So I know a good deal about this sort of thing." considering she could be counted as something like this herself if she bred negativity instead of just feeding off the odd negative feelings she found in the world. "This place is no exaggeration, I can taste its nature from here." making the comment she lifted her hand, stabbing the claws of it into the air causing a black mist dense enough to appear solid to form around them and quickly consume her entire hand. "Negative energy, it essentially comes from any damaging or damaged emotion." and if she could gather this much of it from simply grabbing the air out here, Jiyu couldn't imagine the amount inside of the castle. Yes she could! This was going to be one of the best meals she ever had, and a damn good story, more fun for her trouble than she anticipated.

    "Either the man is incredibly foolish or you need to reevaluate if you've made enemies." the wind user shrugged, leaning back as she levitated there. "Someone trying to send you in here with next to no knowledge of hauntings and underestimating this place, is someone sending you into a death trap." it was harsh to say, but the rueful smile on her face was proof enough that she didn't like the idea and was simply stating the words she stated as a matter of fact sort thing. In Jiyu's mind, someone sending someone here like that man had sent Samira here? Was a purposeful murder attempt or idiocy. "But, yeah, I can handle anything in there, most of them will be infants in terms of hassle for me." after-all on the scale of hauntings, a mere ghost was nothing compared to a diety of revenge, no matter how old or ticked off those ghosts happened to be.

    Why Did People Always Have To Ask Who She Was! At the moment she was not sure if she was Jiyu or Mikka and it was so hard to introduce herself to others due to that. "Jiyu Kazehime, Black Rose Ace." considering everything this was no time to 'change' her name even if Mikka Ambrose was her birth name. "Handshakes are so dull!" the statement came as she lurched forward slightly, hands falling right onto Samira's shoulder blades, ears tilted back softly. "Just remember, no touching of the tail." it was a slightly awkward half hug, but considering her insistence on no one touching her tail it made sense she wouldn't do a full force hug with someone she didn't know that well. "I'll let you have the honor of opening things up, just hold my hand at entry to make sure we end up in the same place inside the castle, certain ghosts are capable of spacial manipulation." which meant if they let go of each other, a powerful enough spirit could separate them within a split second if given the chance.

    ------------

    Sometime later, someway? Samira had gotten them inside of the castle, bare feet levitating inches above the royal red carpeting leading down the entryway they were standing in. Entry was perfect, this was going to be easier than she thought. 'Wow, you're dim, did you really think you'd be able to walk here?' a wave of nausea hit her, any contact she had with Samira being broken as the inugami fell to her knee's, a wretching sound coming from her throat, whole body heaving as if she was going to throw up but nothing came out. What was going on? Jiyu didn't understand immediately until she thought about Assertives taunt for a second, realizing, at last, the implications of entering into a place where the balance of energy was so skewed in the direction of negativity. "Samira." it was a pained gasp as she struggled to hold her power over the body, she couldn't give up control yet, she would be putting the other girl in danger if she did!

    After the first shout? The next jolt of pain rendered her onto her side, gripping her chest as she spluttered another cough, this time a small amount of the energy she had shown Samira outside being upheaved, instantly adhering to her own flesh, defining her black markings. If she could no longer hide the markings? She only had minutes, maybe moments until she lost control. "We have to make a contract!" it was the last thing she truly wanted to do, her contacts never ended too well anytime she could remember making one. However, the only way to bind herself against harming Samira within these walls was to make a contract against it. Before she could get another word out? The wind user started convulsing as if she was going to seize or something along those lines. 'Don't you even mysterious! Just give me control, it's my right here!' She couldn't do that, she couldn't let someone think she had tricked them into this place or anything like that.

    "I can't hold her back forever!" Indeed no matter how hard she fought, Assertive would take their body here, she couldn't walk here. "Quick, before I end up hurting you!" as she hacked again the black energy misted weaving itself into her long hair dying it back to the natural jet black she was born with, bleeding onto her ears and tail. "If you can make me promise, she'll keep it." It was nearly impossible to speak with this gagging, but she had no choice when she stopped gagging it wouldn't be her anymore. Another scream ripped from her throat as one blue eye changed to green in a flash. "I can't start." with another wretch the black mist hanging in the hair enveloped one arm suddenly changing it into canine anatomy from the elbow down. Jiyu had to pray Samira collected the fact that her species was the sort of creature that had to be asked for something, they didn't just offer contracts the other party had to seek them out.

    It was in the other girl's ballfield, she could do nothing but fight off the switch and hope she could do so long enough for Samira to give her the chance to say 'I promise' or 'I swear' or anything binding of the sort. How could she have been so dim as to not realize Assertive had to be the one to wall these halls?
