It had only been an hour or so before the urgent request was sent out to Fairy Tail. It had been apparent that some high ranked mages would have to go out and help out for the job. Rina couldn't even believe what she had seen whenever she was requested to go out on the job. She wasn't even completely sure if she was completely worthy of doing this job. She knew it was true that she wasn't as strong as Mura, or Ivy. Maybe, she would be able to prove herself as an ace. Sure, she's dealt with challenges before, but nothing like this. Nothing that could've been as strong as this. The job was to take place on whirlpool sea. She's heard the dangers of it, which made her wary of it all. The many whirlpools, that happened there. It's taken the lives of many unsuspecting people. Those who encounter it don't even realize they are there before it's too late. If they don't die from being thrashed around by the whirlpools, it leaves them vulnerable to the many creatures that live in there. It brought Rina chills even thinking about the dangers that lurked there.
Either way, she had to defend those children. All those children in that ocean? She wouldn't ever let them be cast away. So, even if she didn't feel completely confident in herself, she knew that she had to save those kids no matter what. Those kids were her main priorities at that time and place. She wouldn't let them go through any more trauma that they already have. Being tossed around like the toys they play with was an awful thought to think about. Sure, she was homeless, ever since she'd been born, but nothing of her life could live up to what had been happening to these kids at this point in time. So, Rina wouldn't let it happen any more. If she did, then she could never forgive herself. Also, this would train her, train her for the battle to come against the Goddess of the Heavenly Garden's brother. She could remember the words of the Goddess very clearly, as it clung onto every single thought in her head. She wished that her doing good was enough for her during jobs, but it wasn't. She had to realize that all of this was apart of her training to be able to defend the Heavenly Gardens. After all, that was why she was granted her powers. She remembered all those she had met there, clinging onto the fact that she was going to protect the rest of those that were there. However, she knew that by the end of all this insanity, she would be able to do it. She was picked by a Goddess to defend something she couldn't at that point in time. So, Rina had to believe that she could do it all. So, as Rina felt the tenseness of her body, rest upon the railing of the ship, she took a deep sigh. She felt the smell of the sea enter her body as it calmed her down.
New areas, like the see, or the air always calmed her down. Her being homeless before, stopped her from enjoying stuff like the ocean. So, being able to be in the moment, on a boat in the ocean made her feel calm. She couldn't wait until she was able to gain enough money for 3 tickets. One for her, one for her sister, and one for her mother. Especially since Rina's father died, Rina had been trying to completely take care of her family. Her mother had to work, even during the fact that she was grieving over her dead mother. So, all Rina wanted to do was let them rest. It wasn't even a month ago that she had bought the two of them a house to live in. Sadly, Rina didn't have enough money to pay for the house, as well as food. So, Rina had to let her mother continue working. Aside from that, she saw the sparkle in her sister's eyes. After not living on the streets after many years of being born, her sister was enjoying it. Having a nice bed to sleep in, and not needing to fear rain pouring on top of her head, it made her sister smile. Along with that, it made Rina smile.
She put a tiny grin on her face, that was immediately wiped away by her guild partner's word. "Angel" she muttered to herself angrily. She couldn't believe someone so naive would be on a job with her. She could feel his snobbishness emanating from him. He was the type of people Rina and her family hated. Rina knew she shouldn't judge, but she's seen people like this before. Snobs who had no care for others, all they cared for was either getting rich or becoming famous. Sure, Rina wanted those things, but those weren't her main priorities. Him though, she wasn't too sure about. Either way, it wouldn't be good of her as an ace to judge someone in her guild so quickly. So, she just said to him with a gentle smile, "Hey, please don't call me 'angel'. I don't really feel like being mistreated that way. Especially since I earned an ace position in the guild. Anyways, I had received a notice about this job from the captain of this ship. He ordered me to find someone on call to help save children that had been tossed off a ship in the whirlpool seas. They didn't completely tell me everything, but that's the general idea. We need to save them before it's too late." As he confidently talked, Rina rolled her eyes in her mind, not letting her clear discomfort of him show on the outside.
