    Little Green Fairy [Ruvel]

    Post by SeaGlass on 8th October 2018, 3:40 pm

    Here Arcadia was back in Tolgalen again. It didn't seem like that long since was here for the Tri-Guild Beach Festival thing. Everyrhing seemed so much bigger this time, but probably only because she was so much smaller herself.

    Ever since Arcadia had accepted the dragon slayer lacrima, gifted to her from her dragon foster mother either from beyond the grave or somehow left her through ages from the past, she had been feeling increasingly out of sorts.

    She was sure it would all even out once she mastered the extra magic and little taste of her mother's power that came with the lacrima.  What Arcadia wasn't so sure would go away was this latest shoe to drop. Just a couple mornings ago, she woke with her nightgown being a few sizes too big. All her clothes were.

    Arcadia had shrunk significantly enough, she had climb a chair to get a good look in the vanity mirror above her dresser. Not just shrunk, but she appeared like her 5 year old self again.


    The young slayer was sure the interaction between her Dragon Seed and all the extra magic she hadn't mastered yet was the source of her other troubles. Arcadia just didn't see how this problem could be connected. It could be, but if it had some other cause, it wouldn't be going away once she got a handle on her new magic.

    She had to visit one of non-wizard friends in Magnolia to borrow a couple old dresses from their younger sibling. A regrettable, of necessary experience, because now she had clothes that fit again. Sadly, she would never live this down, even of she can fix it. They made sure to preserve the memory of their wizard 'babysitter' looking years younger then they are with numerous pictures on their iLacs.

    That and the more numerous times she got stopped walking around Magnolia to be asked if she was lost, taught her to conjure and wear a shadow puppet of her normal age to walk around with.  Sadly, she could not maintain the magical disguise at all times. That was why she was back in Tolgalen now. Arcadia remembered seeing and hearing rumor of some
    members of the WFTC suffering a similar magical condition. Maybe she learn something from their experience that could help her fix this.

    She would start at the top to feel out if they were even willing to help her out. Arcadia was pretty sure one of the head honchos was named Ruvel, so little Arcadia hung out at the beach, asking any staff or promising passersby if they had seen or knew where she could find him.

    Seeing a young girl on the beach alone a elderly couple stopped to look for a few moments before the husband walked over, he was wearing a sea blue coloured summer jacket, white trousers and green top. "Are you lost sweetheart?" he asked a gentle grandfatherly tone rolling from his lips showing concern for her well being before he looked at the last person whom she had been talking to. "What's going on Tom?" he asked the dirty fair haired youth "Afternoon Mr. Peters, she's looking for Ruvel Mizune." he replied, he had no idea as to why but knew she mustn't be from around here as everyone in Togalen knew where to find the Mizune brothers. The elderly woman walked forward now, she was in a long flowing spring green dress and had her grey hair up in a bun with matching ribbons weaved in. "You said Ruvel right?" she said just making sure before her steel blue eyes went to the small girl before pointing to the large lacrima floating atop of a white building a little way a ways "He stays over there my dear, you'll likely have to have your mommy or daddy talk to someone in the reception as he might not be around." she said with a warm tone only seeing a small child and nothing more "Now run a long to your parents, they're likely wondering where you are." Mr Peters said with a small chuckle before he and his wife wandered off with Tom.

    Little Arcadia bristled at first. She knew this problem was going to follow her everywhere she went. It was indeed frustrating, but she chose to see it as a sign that people in general cared. The slayer took a deep breath and didn't bother showing off her Fairy Tail guild mark. Instead, she played along and smiled to Mrs and Mr Peters and Tom, "Thanks, ma'am and misters. I'll go tell... my big sister."

    She hesitated at the end, unable to bring herself to lie about her parents. Being twice orphaned from her human family then dragon foster mother She just couldn't do it. It was easy enough to imagine Nessa had really come along though, so with that Arcadia bowed graciously to the kind people and scampered along.

    Arcadia kept the building with large lacrima the Peters and Tom had pointed out to her in sight. She hurried towards it as fast as her little bare feet could caddy her. In fact, she concentrated magic power down in the soles of her feet. Once a slick coating of ice formed, she stooped forward and speed skated the rest of the way there.

    To avoid the same problem with whoever she'd find in reception, little Arcadia conjured a shadow copy of her normal 14 year old self to wear in disguise. She couldn't disguise her younger sounding voice, so she hoped this shadow puppet would be enough.

    Walking inside and up to reception, she made sure to display her light blue Fairy Tail guild mark. "I'm Arcadia Fairchilde of Fairy Tail. I dun got an appointment, but I need to meet with Ruvel. I believe he may be one of the only people who can help me or point me to someone who can."

    Arcadia dismissed the shadow puppet she was wearing to illustrate what she needed help with. "I believe I've come down with a magical affliction similar to the one I heard he and a couple others like the Dragon King are suffering."

    The receptionist looked at the shadow puppet of the seemingly older person and quirked an eyebrow seeing right through it "Miss Fairchilde, our company is seemingly being run by a bunch of children because of a magical curse, there is no need to feel ashamed of such a thing happening to yourself." the gentleman said with a warm tone as she introduced herself taking note of the Fairytail guild mark that the other had fully aware that the company had bonds with the guild he knew that the young CEO would see her without issue, more so as he had no other meetings today. "No appointment needed Miss Fairchilde, Mr Mizune has no meetings today however he is not actually inside the building at the moment, he's likely on the roof." he explained with a small chuckle knowing that he was still expected to train and get better at his magics and his summons hadn't been letting up in the slightest. "You could take a seat in the waiting room or you could go out the way yo-" he was interrupted by a almost scream that came to a sudden halt.

    Outside the window was a four year old hanging upside down his arms crossed and his legs caught by webbing, he looked up to the roof and yelling at whomever it was above him. "Seems like he is finished for now, I do apologise for the yelling he'll be fine in a few seconds." He said watching as his CEO was lowered carefully onto the ground. "He will likely have a translator, for some reason he can not speak the same language that we do" he admitted to her with a gentle and quiet tone as not to disturb others. "If you go out of the main doors and to the left you will find him." he said allowing her to make her way to see Ruvel who would be dusting his white mandarin suit with ice blue silk stitching stating his name, rank and his guild symbol on it.

    Little Arcadia bowed to the receptionist, dropping the shadow puppet. "Not ashamed, but it can be easier if not everyone thinks you've lost yer mommy. Thanks!  Bowing one more time, she smiled and waved as she scampered back out the doors.


    Skidding a little, she took that left turn and continued scampering until she came upon the young CEO. She glanced up toward the where he must've come from with all that webbing to stop him. I know you maybe didn't do that on purpose, but that looks like one hella boss ride down! We should go back up there and try doing it that again. Is that webbing yours or someone else's? Uhh also, Hi, I'm Arcadia! Arcadia Fairchilde of Fairy Tail. I dunno if you remember seeing me around at that little beach party you had here for the Alliance. I was a little taller then, which is the main reason I'm here. I remembered some of you all having... something similar happen to you, and I was hoping you maybe could help me fix it? Or point me toward a way to fix it.  And if there's time I would love to do that webbing jump thing!"

    The receptionist couldn't help but nod to what the young mage had said to him "Ah, but Miss Fairchilde please remember that looks are deceiving and it can work in your benefit at times as everyone underestimates children." he said with a warm tone trying to help her look on the brighter side of things during the time her condition lasted. He knew that many underestimated the younger of the two CEO's because of his age then again, he had seen him negotiate particularly fussy clients down getting the company a better deal than was originally asked for. He could see it from the others point of view however and was at least glad that she wasn't allowing her predicament get her down.

    Ruvel blinked looking at the other unsure what she was even saying to him so the confusion was written all over his face until the unseen Shindara translated what was said to him. He began to speak but it would have sounded like a whole bunch of gibberish to the other but had instructed Shindara to be his translator. 'I do apologise for invading your mind, my people communicate telepathically. My twin brother and I unfortunately read everyone like open books but please rest assured your secrets and such will not be spoken by us unless you give permission or you are a threat to our summoner.' he sent to the other, he preferred being upfront about his and Amuul's abilities though understood why it made people uncomfortable. He and Amuul however had their own additional rules on top of their racial and social ones so they didn't break privacy of people unless really needed. 'My name is Shindara, I am the crowned prince of my race and have a twin brother named Amuul who also holds the same abilities as I do; if you have any questions feel free to ask them though I may not an answer when I do it will be completely truthful. For now I am to be my summoners translator' he said introducing himself not wanting her to feel at ill ease not knowing anything about him.

    Listening to Ruvel's words he looked to her from Ruvel's shadow 'It wasn't on purpose, I train with my summons every day so I can bond with them better. One of my daily training is my endurance and speed since I'm not built to be a warrior. The summon I am working with at the moment has me run up her web, she gives me a few seconds head start and then chases after me; if she catches me then I return back to the bottom and start again...' he explained taking a few seconds to take in the next part 'If I manage to get to the top then the lesson for that day is done. I would rather not be falling off the roof of the company building it is unprofessional, I could only imagine what our clients think of what just happened there.' he finished explaining Ruvel shaking his head sighing. 'My summoner was unable to make it to the beach festival he was ill at the time and so had to remain bed bound' he explained letting the four year old summoner know what was being said before Ruvel pointed to himself "Ruvel Mizune" he said at least trying to introduce himself by himself but was unsure how well he was doing before speaking once more 'He says that he has been trying to find a cure himself, the others that were affected at the same time as himself have seemed to gone back to normal but he himself has remained at this age.' Shindara explained though frustration would be seen on Ruvel's face on the matter.

    Little Arcadia hung her head hearing  the bad news. She looked at her smaller than normal hands, sighing softly. The littlest slayer smiled and bowed graciously, "Guess that means I'm stuck like this until it wears off. Thankyou for your time. if you happen to find anything that works for you, would you do me a favor and send note to me at Fairy Tail? Though they might have completely different causes, gotta try everything."

    She tilted her head curiously, casually looking up toward the heights of the building. Not exactly sure who she should be addressing, so she just asked them all, "So you guys are like part spider or somethin'?  Sweet. If it's not too rude of me ta ask, does this translator thing normal or is it part of what made you little?"

    Approaching the side of the building, Arcadia froze a hand, then a barefoot to it. She climbed up a foot or two, freezing and unfreezing her skin to the outside wall. The slayer smiled back over her shoulder, "C'mon. We can talk more on the way up. This bungee-web jumping you invented looks like fun. You can even call it training."

    The receptionist nodded taking notes and placing it into a folder where it transfered into a lacrima and vanished to go to the right department, it wasn't known but there was a development area that was looking into such things so that this could possible come to an end quicker if it ever happened again. "Of course Miss Fairchilde" the receptionist said watching as she moved out of the building to see the CEO of the company.

    Shindara couldn't help but chuckle a little at her question shaking his head from the shadow of his summoner. 'No, we are not part spider we are what are known as Deathless, we are void dwelllers. The one you are looking for does have spider lineage but is a dark elven maiden who does not have the best sense of humour.' he admitted to her while Amuul was translating for Ruvel so he knew what was going on. Ruvel started to speak but again it would sound like nonsense a his eyes looking down 'Our summoner says, this was his native language when he was this young... he can't remember how to speak how you do or what is now normal to him. He feels ashamed that he has to have his summons translate for him.' he allowed the other to know hoping she would be understanding of how sensitive something like this was for the youth. What she wouldn't know was right now he was deadly afraid because people were still hunting him and it would be easier to find him at current because of his predicament, after all there weren't a lot of toddlers that glowed.

    Ruvel was given more of what was said and shook his head, he knew it was unprofessional given that it was the company building and even worse his summon wouldn't take kindly to it he thought so started to talk once more. 'I'm sorry but our summoner is against what you are asking, he says that his summons aren't toys they're people with feelings and sometimes bad tempers. He also says it would look bad for the one in charge of this company to be acting a fool, he apologises but says he knows something that might be fun for you both to do. There's a festival on in the town near by.' Shindara let her know waiting to see if that would appease her

    Her disappointment was not hidden, her faerie green gaze going flat in annoyance with a small frown. She did not take the ruination of her fun lightly, and if this was Fairy Tail's guild hall she would have climbed right to the top without them. But she was a guest, and it would not be polite to do that here, so she dropped down without further protest "I should prolly get going. It's a long flight back home. Thanks again."

    Arcadia paused a moment, she did come all this way, it would be a shame to at least check out this festival. She regained a smile, and turned back toward Ruvel and his summons, "On second thought. a festival you say... I don't have to go back right away. Lead the way. What kinda festival is it?"

    Ruvel looked to the other he could read the disappointment clear on her face and had asked his unseen summon as to why she gave such a thing and was told that she really wanted to try and bungee off the company building. He silently sighed knowing that was far from a good idea for many reason as much as he wanted to keep her happy. Ruvel started to speak and once again Shindara started to translate for both 'My summoner apologises for declining your wishes and ruining your fun, this is something that he doesn't want to do but the company has a reputation to maintain and having the ceo and a guest both of which looking like children falling from the roof wouldn't look to good.' he explained 'He said the company airship is heading towards your guilds location so they could drop you off, it would only take a few hours at most to get back, once again he is sorry' he let the other know Ruvel turning his head almost if he was ashamed for denying his guest something she wanted to do and due to it having her wanting to leave so soon after arriving.

    Seeing her moving from the corner of his eye he turned his head quickly biting his lip he wanted to move forward and give chase but it was her decision to leave, though, without even realising it his hand had moved to try and reach out to her. Hearing her voice his hand lowered Shindara translating once more Ruvel moved into his top and brought out a crystal rose that seemed to have semi translucent rose pink and baby blue moonlight trapped within it and held it out for her saying something 'he says the festival is the Crystal Moon Blossom Festival.' The summon said 'There are games, food, entertainment, music, dancing... the crystal roses and blossoms release the moonlight they have gained over the last year and give off all sort of colours. Some even keep their glows after being picked such as the one he is holding to you, though those flowers are extremely rare.' he commented to her so she knew as Ruvel started to walk towards the steps towards a town nearby.

    The town would be lively and a buzz with energy, people dancing, playing games, on rides, eating food, getting trinkets, the whole place would be brightly decorated and even in the day time the gentle glow from the crystal flowers and trees in a mix of colours.

    Arcadia smiled brighter, accepting the soft glowing crystal rose. She briefly held it under her nose for a test sniff of any scent it held. The barefoot slayer slowly twirled the crystal rose in her fingers to get a glimpse of how the glow might sparkle when viewed through different faces. She didn't really say anything, but found a little hope Ruvel knew how to have some kind of fun, if not the awesome thrillseeking kind. It was worth finding out, so she hurried after the CEO toward those steps and the nearby town.

    Ruvel watched as the rose was taken from him, though a person would believe that due to it being made from crystal that it would hold no scent that was not the case in this instance. The rose held a delicate scent that would be pleasing to the one that smelt it, and when Arcadia did inhale the scent not only would the slight glow within it get brighter but the blossom would release what could only be described as sparkles that would fade after a few seconds. Ruvel himself watched a handsome smile on his face as he seen how his gift had been treated, it wasn't something he would expect as he had seen others give these roses to others and the one receiving them not even checking to smell the scent or see the full effect of the fragile and delicate blossom. Seeing her inspect it further make him smile brighter, in fact it made him laugh a little as it seemed like it had intrigued the other. This was what he had wanted but then he had no idea the true story behind the story or what it meant to give it to another, he just wanted to show her something naturally magical.

    Shindara had been watching from his young summoners shadow and was smiling himself, he had never seen the youth smile genuinely before. It had always been a mask that he forced himself to wear due to his job and to appear somewhat normal. 'Fair lady, you are the first to see his true smile this is a rarity due to his past.' The void prince shared with the other his tone calm but held an underlying warmth to it 'There is a story to those flowers, a prince and princess were said to have loved each other very much and their up and coming union was blessed not only by their loving parents and subjects but the divine themselves. The story unfortunately does have darkness in it when another believed that they should have the love they so had and killed the couple on the eve of their wedding.' he explained allowing images of the story to unfold in Arcadia's head 'The parents of the young couple grief stricken to find out the fate of their beloved children had them taken to the moon garden within their wedding garb so that they would be united and wed when they reached the next life, for three days and nights the bodies of the prince and princess where left within the moon garden. It was on the third night the parents went to say their final goodbyes that they seen something they didn't expect, the flowers of the garden had crystalised and had began to glow with the light of the moon.' he continued to explain to her his tone remaining the same the entire way. 'It is said that the moon and stars gave them the wedding that was stolen from them and that what had happened to the flowers and trees of the garden was a wedding gift from them to signify their true and undying love.' he said allowing the images of the story to fade from her mind.

    'My summoner does not know of the story, nor does he know what it means to give such a gift to a young woman such as yourself. He doe not know what it means when the flower reacts like it has for you.' he said allowing the warmth to take over his normal calm tone 'It means that you two are blessed by the divine and there is a chance that you two may become more than friends.' he explained 'A caution to you though fair lady, my summoner is fragile though shows a tough exterior. We ask that you handle him with care.' he sent to the other before once again falling silent. Ruvel had been walking the entire time completely unaware of the conversation that had been happening as Shindara had kept it that way. As soon as they had entered the town a little girl around his own current height had taken his hand and led him into the middle of the square where others where dancing, smiling and laughing he danced along but given the information Arcadia was now armed with she wouldn't know if it was real or not.

    Looked mildly confused listening to Shindara. Arcadia had not thought of the possibility that Ruvel did not hear what his friends in the shadow were saying, yet there was no way he could. Not with what Shindara was saying, and have no reaction. She looked to the crystal rose in her grasp as she listened and walked along. The little slayer hadn't really given much thought any romantic notions in ages. Not since the Kingdom of Dragnof was in its heyday, and she was training to fight in its name. Training with her mother, Khione Glacier had not left much time for a social life, but she still had managed to eek out one.

    Who she considered her first boyfriend fit the brooding, dark and mysterious archetype to a T. While they had never kissed, she had spent nearly every minute of free time she had from her training with him, so it was devastating when the boy wound up with another girl with more time. Khione Glacier thought the whole thing was somewhat melodramatic, but Arcadia was 13 at the time, and didn't think so. Also it was still semi-fresh in her mind, as to her perception of time it was all only last year.

    Her second boyfriend and first kiss came only about a month before she would wind up in stasis under the ancient Sphere spell with a noble boy she met at a Royal Ball. Though to her perception of time, it was not even half a year since that had occurred, her time in stasis ensured she would never see him again. So she understood very well Shindara's warning of fragile hearts.

    Arcadia could help but wonder if part of the divine blessing revealed by the rose was in part because of her foster mother's spirit still looking out for her. The idea helped open her mind and her heart to the possibility of something more with Ruvel. No one else could understand her current magical condition better than he did.  She whispered to his shadow, "I know what that's like, so if I can help it I would never do that someone else, Shindara."

    Watching Ruvel dance with the girl his size made her blush ever so lightly when she realized it gave the slightest twinge of jealousy. She smiled, and tucked the crystal rose behind her right ear, and made sure her dress was smoothed out. Arcadia politely tapped the girl on the shoulder, and dipped in the formal style of curtsy she had learned for mingling with Dragnof's Royalty and nobles. "Mind if I cut in?"

    Re: Little Green Fairy [Ruvel]

    Post by Ruvel on 15th January 2019, 2:33 pm

    Ruvel had been completely unaware of the conversation that had happened between Shindara and the Fairy Tail mage, and it showed on how he had not reacted to the story; if he had heard it there was no way of knowing how he would have acted but most likely apologetically and saying that it wasn't his intention. That he only wanted to show her the beauty of the festival that was taking place in what was now his homeland, he didn't really remember his birthplace and wanted to forget the place he was raised within up until his summons helped him escape. He had met some mages and from that moment it almost seemed like his life started to change for the better, though it had been difficult at times; even now he found it hard as he was still trying to adapt from what he was within the facility and what he currently was for his company and guild. The two were on opposite sides of the scales when it came to how his life was. He went from having less than nothing to being in control of a multi billion jewel trading company and guild of strong mages, then again he was also a god of Ishgar and had no idea how something like that even happened as what he done was just run of the mill stuff in his eyes.

    The hidden void prince heard the whispers clearly to what was being said but it wasn't him who had heard her words, if the summon had been able to seen he would have face palmed given that his summoner just started asking questions of what had been said and so translated. There was then more requesting of information but Shindara had explained that such things could wait until he wasn't playing host to a guild from a mage from another guild, he nodded knowing that Shindara was correct in what he was saying. The unseen void prince looked to the young Fairy Tail mage and sighed silently 'Fair lady, my people are telepathic meaning we don't speak like you do; if you wish to communicate with me without my summoner knowing something just think it and I will be able to pick up on it. This will prevent his confusion in the future because some things like the reason behind this festival is something he should learn through studies.' he is explained calmly he wanted to prevent such things from happening in the future, some things he knew would be complicated for his young summoner to get his head around let alone how he would react to the folklore of the flowers and the girl he had just proposed a relationship with.

    All the elder void prince could hope for was that the other would understand that somethings had been kept from Ruvel for his own good, well at least when it came to many of the summons however there where others who decided to keep things from him just because they could. The time was nearing that the contracts would be coming to their ends and this worried him quite a bit, as they would no longer be able to protect him even if they wanted to continue doing so. This was something that was needed for his growth though but it didn't take such worry away. 'Thank you for taking care with him, this means a lot to me he has been through much more than any should have in an entire life in his short one.' he explained to the other his voice humble as he spoke to her in his usual method, like always only she would have heard the words as shown by Ruvel not reacting to them communicating. At current Ruvel was still dancing contently with the girl that had taken him to the square, at that moment he seemed not to have a care in the world as he danced and the summon could feel the truth behind it but remained quiet, he didn't have to tell anyone anything.

    As the girl danced with him she came to a pause when she was tapped on the shoulder, she was wearing a simple white and blue dress and pouted a little seeing the rose behind Arca's ear. It would have been clear she wasn't happy to see that rose with the Fairy Tail mage "Sure, I guess..." she grumbled walking off leaving Ruvel blinking unsure what had happened or what was going on. Shindara had explained that Arca had asked to take the other girls place to dance with him, be double blinked not understanding why Arca would have wanted to do such a thing but then he was playing host right now so he guessed it kinda made sense. Extending a hand forward he placed his other on his chest bowing forward as if offering her to dance as that was what she asked to do a handsome smile on his face as she looked to the other as he spoke. 'He says that the rose adds to the beauty of your fair skin and kind eyes.' The hidden summon once more translated so she would know what was being said to her.

    Re: Little Green Fairy [Ruvel]

    Post by SeaGlass on 8th February 2019, 6:17 am

    Arcadia smiled softly to the other girl, who was gracious enough to allow Arcadia to take her place. "Thanks. Appreciate it." She slipped into the other girl's place, facing Ruvel. Holding out the hem of her dress at either side of herself, Arcadia dipped slightly in a curtsey. It was quiet acceptance of his offer to dance, acceptance completed when she took his hand to begin.

    The translation of his compliment warmed her smile and her heart. Without consciously noticing it herself, she began to dance about a half-step closer. Already Arcadia was lighter of heart and happier being around Ruvel. She was laughing and smiling rather brightly, while her feet carried her around to the melody.

    Arcadia did not know it at the moment, but she suffered one of her first visits from an alien entity she would come to know all too well in the not too distant future. A dream demon, who only exists in the dreams and mindscapes of others. Its presence was undetectable, except by those it chose to interact with. Today it was only bothering Arcadia, as she felt the onset of a mild pressure headache. It was a telltale sign she would not learn to recognize until weeks or months later.

    The dream demon saw no reason to introduce itself this day, but that did not stop it from amusing itself by stirring up one of the littlest slayer's darker memories.

    It came in flashes: The morning sun was already well above the horizon in the Kingdom of Dragnof. It's warmth was burning off the morning dew, bringing a blanket of mist to the field young Arcadia now stood in. She rubbed sleep from her heavy-lidded deep green eyes, and turned them up to her adopted mother, the great ice dragon, Khione Glacier. Arcadia still wrestling with the demons of sleep, lodged protest in replayed thought, 'Mooom, why can't we just get a few more minutes of sleep?'

    Arcadia continued to dance, while old visions played before her eyes. She fell out of rhythm, until she gained a brief respite. It was not the first time she had been haunted by this particular memory but it had never been triggered so randomly. There was nothing occurring presently to even remotely remind her of her mother. Without knowledge of the dream demon, she was at a loss of why she would remember that now so vividly.

    The barefoot slayer dismissed any more thought on the matter and focused back on Ruvel. She smiled, quickly finding her rhythm again. The dream demon pushed a tad harder back to the forefront, pushing Arcadia into another flag: The way Khione Glacier's frozen body of living ice sparkled in the morning sun, Arcadia had to be about the only human who could read the disappointment in her mother's icy draconic features. Frosty breath poured from nostrils in her disapproving snort. Khione Glacier rumbled to her comparatively tiny teenage ward, 'Have I been wasting my time, little one? Are you not the same child who was brought to me in tears after her family and village were destroyed by my more callous brethren? The same child who pleaded with me to teach her the secret of Ice Dragon Slayer magic, so that she could one day fight by my side, and bring Justice to those same callous siblings of mine? Do you think Acnologia complained to his guardian?'

    Arcadia hung her head, her great mother being absolutely right. If she ever wanted to be as a great a hero as Acnologia and the other dragon slayers who made it possible for the dragons and humans of Dragnof to live side by side, then she had to stop whining about small things. She would never find Justice for her fallen family that way either.


    She shook her head, looking confused. Arcadia fixed her faerie green gaze apologetically to Ruvel, "I'm sorry. I don't mean to be so distracted."

    Once again, she found her rhythm, and quickly got back in step with the melody of the music playing. She smiled warmly, following Ruvel's lead in the dance. Arcadia realized that while she was focused on Ruvel, she felt a happiness and warmth that lessened the pressure in her head. What she could not realize was that was because the dream demon lost influence on her mind from that happiness.

    The dream demon did not relent so easily however. It renewed its attack on Arcadia's mind. The pressure she returned to her head, and she was flung into one more flash: Closing her eyes, Arcadia centered herself, allowing the magic power of the land to flow through and awaken her senses. Her sharpened green gaze spotted a stack of two boulders with a crude face etched onto the side. She sighed , glancing back up to Khione Glacier, "]'Seriously, Mom? I know you're right about all that, and one day I WILL be a great hero like Acnologia. But how am I gonna be ready to do that just fighting rocks?'

    Khione Glacier lowered her massive, icy head toward the ground, so she could be eye to eye with her ward. 'First you must get a better handle on never staying in one place. The power of my ice will lend you its strength and durability, true. You should never depend on that power alone. Never leave the enemy time to focus in on you.'

    Turning her focus back toward the makeshift training target, Arcadia took her mentor's words to heart. Then she noticed Khione Glacier's head lingering closer to the ground, which meant there something more on her foster mother's mind? 'What is it, Mom?'

    The great ice dragon paused before answering, 'Nothing, little one. Nothing but rumors. We may talk about them later.' Khione Glacier lifted her great head up high once more with her best approximation of a smile. Dragon smiles can be scary things, if you don't know them very well. 'Right now you've got an adversary who's not just going to wait around for you, little one.'

    Arcadia nodded, 'Right, Mom! That guy doesn't stand a chance!' The young slayer was at once surrounded in a raging magical field of frigid air and tiny glittering ice crystals suspended in the space around her. Staring down her rocky opponent, Arcadia first took on the strength and then the durability of an ancient glacier. When she was ready, a predatory grin spread across her young face, her magical field of chilled air and ice dissipating.

    Her attention and deep green eyes sharply focused on her target, Arcadia's long pale blonde hair trailed out behind her with her bare feet pounding the ground to charge the waiting stack of rocks. Halfway there, she roared a swirling torrent of super-chilled water and razor-sharp flecks of ice. The water instantly freezing on contact, leaving the rock target coated in a splattering of ice. Arcadia's path to the stacked rocks was not a straight one. Taking Khione Glacier's advice closer to heart, Arcadia did not wish to give even a makeshift training dummy a chance to get a bead on her.

    Finally closing the distance, Arcadia spun her left foot around and hard into the icy side of the rocks. On impact, her foot cratered through the ice. Her body carried through on it's twirling momentum, bringing the hard crunch of her right fist. A hard jab from her left struck to the rock doll's midsection. Imagining her foe to be staggered, Arcadia vaulted into a backflip away from the practice doll for a little breathing room.

    She inhaled deep before she even landed, unleashing a second swirling maelstrom. The freezing waterspout and razor ice gave the stacked rocks a second coating of ice. Rushing back in, Arcadia noticed cracks in the rock underneath the icy coating after leading back in with a high sideways kick that sent bits of ice and rock in all directions. Arcadia followed up with another flurry of two punches. Both focus in on where the cracks were forming beneath the ice. Her right went high and her left went low, creating twin craters in the rock doll's icy veneer.

    Spreading both of of her arms out like wings, Arcadia lurched back a few steps. Swirling razor ice gathered about her outspread arms in vaguely draconic wing-shaped formations. Arcadia stomped forward, swinging her arms together, sending her wings of razor ice flinging past and through the rock doll.

    The frigid cold and power of each blow crumbled the rock doll down into a pile of smaller rocks and debris ice. Arcadia bared her cute little fangs in big grin and pumped one fist into the air in victory. Breathing harder from the flurry of exertion, she laughed as she started back to Khione Glacier. She wore a proud grin across her young features. The glimmer of pride in Khione Glacier's crystal ice eyes made it all worth it.

    A mentor's critique followed just the same. Khione Glacier bellowed to her mortal daughter, 'Very nice, very nice! You were excellent... right up until the point you slowed down at the end, little one. A real wizard or a real dragon will be hitting you back, not just sitting there like that rock doll.'

    Arcadia was still trying to catch her breath as she reached her foster mother's side. She sighed, 'Aww, Mom. That thing woulda been hurting too much to fight back, even of he was real.'

    The great ice dragon chuckled, 'Perhaps there is nothing more I can teach you with lifeless dolls alone. Tomorrow I will ask the queen to lend me one of her marionette wizards, and you will see how much harder it is when the dolls hit back. I-'

    Khione Glacier's manner suddenly went completely serious. They had a visitor. Arcadia couldn't see or sense them herself though. She glanced up to her foster mother, 'Mom! What.. or who is it?' As soon as she asked Arcadia began to sense then catch sight of the long haired figure in the distance. It was coming their way.

    Arcadia jumped and waved in excited greeting once she realized who it was. 'Acnologia! Hey Acnologia! Ove-'

    Her foster mother silenced Arcadia with one harsh reprimand. 'Arcadia! Calm down and be silent, little one! Wait back in your hut. Acnologia and I have a couple things to discuss first. I'll call for you when we're ready for you.'

    Taken aback by her foster mother's sharp tone, Arcadia reluctantly and quietly retreated back to her own little hut. From there she watched as Khione Glacier flew out to meet the figure of Acnologia. Gone was her earlier excitement at seeing one of her heroes. Instead, Arcadia couldn't help a certain sense of foreboding.

    Khione Glacier greeted the stone-faced Acnologia. 'So... Acnologia, are the rumors true? Have you turned against even those of us who taught you the power to stand up for your people?'

    The legendary dragon slayer remained expressionless, coldly responding,'All dragons must perish. There can be no peace as long as even one still lives.'

    With nothing else to say, Khione Glacier took to the skies and Acnologia followed. Arcadia felt her heart leap up into her throat. She knew she shouldn't call out, but it couldn't be helped. 'Acnologia!! What're you doing?! That's my mom!'

    Arcadia watched the life and death struggle wheel around the sky above. Either they could not hear her or just ignored her calls. To Arcadia's growing sense of relief, Khione Glacier was slowly gaining the upper hand. Her foster mother finally managed to throw Acnologia off her back. Khione Glacier positioned herself in a steep dive to drive and crush Acnologia into the ground.

    On the way down, Acnologia activated the series of magic circles he had placing all along. Khione Glacier's soul was rendered from her ice crystalline body. It would be her limp form that would crash into the ground. Arcadia's deep green eyes watched wide in terror and shock, tears blurring her vision. 'Moooom!!!'

    Acnologia emerged from the resulting dust cloud in his dreaded dragon form, prepared to finish off the fallen great ice dragon. In her grief, Arcadia rushed out and roared a torrent of freezing water and razor ice straight up at Acnologia's now draconic face. The apocalyptic monster was not fazed one bit. Acnologia just turned his gaze down at Arcadia as if only just now noticing the young dragon slayer's existence.

    In that moment, Arcadia finally recognized the memory for what it was, the past. Remembering how only a moment ago, this pressure in her head has lessened by focusing on the happiness she felt being in Ruvel's company, Arcadia directed her mental focus back toward that feeling. This time she would keep her rhythm, as the dream demon could not stand the love taking root in the young slayer's heart. Dismissing the girl's emotion as sickeningly sweet, the dream demon retreated from Arcadia's mind and the festival altogether.

    Arcadia smiled again to Ruvel, and thought to his guardian, 'I think there may be something to that story behind the rose.' She took the crystal moon rose from behind her right ear and tucked it over behind her right ear. The young slayer laughed as she dried her faerie green eyes and danced on, happy and carefree.
