- Job Info:
Nessa was travelling with Rina, pacing along a dirt road. They were patrolling the unknown lands, due to some suspicious activity in the area; disappearances and suspicious behaviour. They were just taking a look, having a look around, nothing specific. She had undergone a lot lately, so it was nice to hang out with Rina again. Last time they had really seen each other was that job that had undergone in the Ace of Spades. That had been a tough learning curve for Nessa, having to face so much in one long stretch of battle after battle. When she had become a mage she hadn't been prepared for how tough it would be. How much fighting and pain you had to take to get things done. That job especially, had been a massive wake up call for her, but fortunately she had had Rina there to help her through it. She genuinely felt like she had grown much stronger because of it, and was much more confident in her own ability. A lot had changed since she had stepped through the guild doors, anxious and excited, that day were she had been so clueless to the reality of it all. The ups and downs since, it had been a rollercoaster and she wouldn't change a thing.
Nessa was wearing her usual white and violet dress, accompanied by her knee high socks and elbow length gloves. Her hair tied in a loose ponytail behind her, and around her neck her newest accessories. The same crystal necklace she had actually received from doing the job with Rina, it's sparkling blue crystal shimmering in the light, emanating a soft magical energy. After having her Dad look into it, they discovered the item had magic amplifying abilities, making her magic even stronger than it was. It was a really blessing and made the hardships they had gone through a lot easier to swallow.
As Nessa plimsoles pressed against the gravel of the road, she heard something that caught her attention. She glanced down, lifting her right foot, founding a flat object underneath. She stepped back kneeling down, "Hey Rina..." She said, calling over the ace. She reached down and picked up the object, quickly realising it was a card. Standing back up, she lifted the card, leaning forward she blew a puff of her, blowing off the excess dust so she could see what it was. She recognised it as a Tarot Card, one of those cards used by fortune tellers to predict your future. Nessa had had her cards read before, once when she went with her Aunty who wanted to find out if she would find love again. It had been a pretty vague fortune.
'Kissed by the heavens, and blessed with it's light,
I see much greatness in your future, greater than you could ever imagine,
But in light their is dark, tainted dark, and it poisons you from it's eternal grave.
It must be severed or the light will fade, and the wicked will prevail.'
A strange, strange fortune indeed, a lot more vague than the one her aunty had gotten about meeting a man with a beard on the night of celebration and grandeur. The only thing that had made sense was the 'blessed with it's light' part, which Nessa assumed meant her magic. The rest just seemed really morbid. Although there was also the likelihood that the fortune telling had been a fake. Just because they lived in a magical world, didn't mean their weren't frauds out there. Nessa's drew her attention back to the card, the image of a man standing on a cliff, looking up to the sky with his belongings hanging over his shoulder. Her eyes scanned the words at the bottom, the Fool.
A loud cackle filled the air, making her jump, she looked around. Admittedly frightening by the sudden laughter, as she glanced around she couldn't see the source of it. She looked back at Rina and gulped, "I've got a bad feeling about this." She said allowed, and almost like a response to her remark, the world around them shifted and everything around them changed. Nessa dropped the card in surprise, looking around trying to get her bearings. They had clearly been transported somewhere, "Crap, I really have to learn to stop touching things!" Nessa said with a frustrated groan. Here we go again, She thought. In front of them was a door, with roman numerals embedded on it for the number one. Another laugh could be heard, this time even louder and crazier than before. Then the laugh is followed by a voice;
"You are now trapped in my little fun house. Try to escape if you dare. Behind each of my little doors in a fun little arena that you can fight my brothers and sisters in. Hopefully you die, because that would be very fun for me! Now then, turn the knob or I will kill you here and now. Please, just make this fun for me!"
