Now in the present Valerie was sweeping up the front of the puppies owner store while wearing a maid uniform, she wasn't exactly told to do this but she wanted to as it would help the owner keep up a clean and professional profile for his business as well as from outside she could spot a potential Fairy tail member walking by and engage in a conversation with them. Suddenly out of the blue she heard the shop owner calling her name from inside and she lightly placed the broom she had been sweeping with against the wall and made her way inside, as she walked in the shop owner was squirming with nervousness and Valerie instantly thought, "Well this can't be good", the shop owner would go on to tell her that one of his puppies had gotten sick and that the medicine he needed to help cure him wasn't sold at the medical shop because nobody was brave enough to collect the herbs needed. He would go on to state that they had contacted the local guilds about this situation and that they were short staff and could only send one person which was a problem as the location where the herbs grew was a two-man job.
Valerie passively held up her hand as she got the jist of the situation, "So you basically want me to help out in this situation right~?" The shop owner nodded his head rapidly in response and although Valerie felt slightly reluctant she reasoned with herself that perhaps the fame of her deeds may reach a wizard of the fairy tail guild and they would eventually find her instead, "Alright I'll go, where do I meet this partner of mine?" The shop owner who was well prepared in case she said yes would pull out a map from under his shirt in which Valerie took, reading the map she could tell it showed where his shop was and a red clear line indicating the direction she had to take to reach her destination.
With her destination clear, Valerie would go upstairs towards the room she had been staying in and begin changing, she would go through a thin door that blurred out her image like a shadow as she took off all her clothes, she then begun to put on a thin red bra that covered her areola and nipples from sight and then put on a brown coat with red and gold designs on the edges and bottom and then proceeded too put on short booty shorts and then finished off her outfit with red high knee shocks that also held red and gold designs at the edges before finishing off her look with a pair of simple brown boots. Now that she was ready to go she would rush downstairs and out the door with map in hand to meet this "partner" of hers for their trip to a place not even workers wanted to visit.
