    A matter of urgency ~ [ Yona]

    Post by Amalie on 24th November 2018, 9:36 am

    Job Details:


    The cold ocean water slapped hard against the wooden sides of the West Fiore Trading Company Ship as it raced through the sea towards their targetted destination. Amalie stood on the deck, arms crossed over her chest.  A multitude of boatmen milling about behind her running the boat and preparing for the task at hand. Her Icy-blue eyes stared hard at the water ahead trying to find any sight of the catastrophe that awaited them. She was aware that one of her guildmates was on the boat too, but she wasn't in the mood to keep her company. Amalie was too focused on the task at hand.

    When she had come to the guild today, her only intention was to collect her reward for the job she had most recently done. The slaughtering of a pack of werewolves that were terrorizing villagers, she had the blue-haired guy shark guy had made quick work of it. She had been looking forward to receiving payment and heading home to add it to her finances. She had planned on spending time going through her income and review her financial progress. A task she thoroughly enjoyed, knowing she was on her way to accumulating wealth always put Amalie in a good mood. After collected her funds, she had initially been about to leave the guild when the emergency call out rang out. Having overheard it, her mood immediately dropped and all thoughts of heading home vanished.

    Amalie had rushed back and volunteered herself for the rescue. Usually, she would not be so eager to sign up for emergency jobs, they were usually high-risk and low reward. But this one was different, this wasn't about making money or about building her slowly amounting reputation in the guild. Taking this job had been instinctual for her. Children at risk of drowning due to an amusement ship going down near whirlpools, or potentially eaten by the monstrous creatures spotted near the incident. Such mania was unheard of. Yet, she wasn't about to ignore it. Children were the most innocent type of human, so mouldable and so weak. They needed protecting, and Amalie was ready to do just that.

    She still couldn't see anything, she growled in frustration before turning away from the edge of the boat. Her black heels clicked against the floor as she briskly approached one of the Boatmen. "This is taking too long!" She barked irritably, he looked up at her, wincing as the cold hard wind whipped his face. "We're going as fast as we can, Miss West." He replied, only to receive a stare of cold fury, she resisted the urge to break his nose, knowing it would not benefit the situation. She pushed past him. "Not fucking good enough." She retorted, heading towards the back of the boat. The ship was already going at full speed, she was well aware of that. Unfortunately, they hadn't had time to track down the fastest ship in the port, therefore they were stuck with one of their regular trading ships and these weren't known for speed.  

    She reached the back of the boat in a matter of moments, her pale blue hair whipping about in the wind, she held out her hands with her palms facing outwards. Summoning her magic, she felt it climb up her throat before released in the form of a spell. "Burn." She called, the spell reverberated loudly through the air. Fire shot from her palms immediately forced outwards in the direction against where the boat was heading. She was attempting to use the energy from the fire to boost the speed of the boat. After a moment, she could feel the speed of the boat, pick up slightly. She gritted her teeth, holding the flames in place. It would not be ideal to use up all her magic before she got there, but she was determined to get to those children as fast as possible, the longer they soon, the more casualties there would be. Amalie didn't want to go to bed tonight with the conscious of a drowning child on her mind. She would succeed, she just hoped her accomplice would be able to provide a decent amount of support.

    Heroism wasn't much up Yona's alley when it came to selecting missions. It seemed that most other mages in the company were busy with other jobs or activities however and an emergency crisis like this was not something Yona could just skip out on. The short green haired woman had been making a statement, sitting in the stables and talking over equine behavior and husbandry when she got the message on her iLac. Why did she even own a damn phone? Yona stood up and brushed the horse hair and sweet smelling hay off her clothing as best as she could. She wasn't dressed in her usual company best, but a mage was a mage and they weren't going to boil over about her clothing choices on this job. She gave Doll one last pat on the back before jogging out to the ships and joining up with what looked like a newer mage. Or at least, the blue haired woman was new to her. The bustle of the ship as it was quickly pushed from the dock and ropes were untangled all around, sails unfurling and the boom swinging wide separated her for a moment from the other mage. Yona didn't actually try to catch up to her, preferring to help the crew.

    She probably just looked like one of them, carrying boxes around to stabilize and clear the main deck for use in this dangerous situation. A series of medical staff aboard the staff had needed help below deck to set up stations and cots. They were even training some of the crew members on basic first aid knowledge because who knew how many lives were at risk out in the whirlpools of the sea. As Yona lent a hand, she gleaned that some sort of fancy party boat had sunk near the whirlpools, dumping the children into life-threatening scenarios too dark to contemplate. Yona hated the idea of it, but she supposed most of the people, most of the children would be dead by the time this ship got there. There were so many unanswered questions: Where were all the adults? Why was the ship close to whirlpools in the first place? And finally, on a boat filled with magical playtime fun... where were the mages able to use their power to help!?

    Yona returned to the main deck and was tying down the last of a few large barrels when she heard the click of heels and a female's voice shouting. She winced, hoping it was a stressed out nurse and not the mage accompanying her to the rescue. Yona looked over her shoulder and saw the blue-haired woman again, barking out at a poor crew member. She started to approach the woman, heading to the stern to diffuse the situation, when the woman lifted her hands and torrents of flame appeared, propelling the trade ship through the water. As the boat knifed through the waves, the wind lashed Yona's green hair about her face. She wore comfortable black stretch pants and a large grey hooded sweatshirt. Still smelling like a mixture of horse and brine, Yona felt an intense fear looking at those bright flames. Sure, the mage was helping, but Yona had bad experiences with fire. She bit on her lip, hearing the screams of her childhood, seeing the charred body of her father. Luckily, she was wearing pants and nobody could see the scorch marks the home fire left behind on her physical body. The plant mage inhaled and then exhaled, going towards the mage and trying her best to leave her fears behind.

    "You should consider treating the crew a little better. They had no warning either and are doing a fine job," Yona defended them valiantly, careful to keep her eyes on the mage instead of the woman's fire. "Still, the fire's a good touch. We should be there in a couple of minutes with that going as it is. Don't tire yourself out too much before we get there. It's just us that can help deal with this." Yona looked out at the water behind the boat and then turned to look where they were headed. A large ship poked up through the blue, a blinking ferris wheel half submerged in the water. From where she was, Yona could see tons of little shapes, bodies in the water, clinging to each other, wearing floatable vests, and others still sitting or lying on top of floating wreckage, the flotsam bobbing in the water as it rotated and swirled. For a moment, Yona was still, just staring at the scene in a scramble of confusion and emotions. How could this have happened? Who let it get to this point? "Come on," She encouraged, "I see them!"

    The plant mage took off sprinting to the bow, looking over the starboard edge as she went. The crew cinched the sails back up into half-rolls, slowing the boat down to not make a bad situation worse by running aground of the children still surviving.

    Amalie couldn't help herself; she was rattled. Her fire blew furiously from her palms, a significant reflection of her internal state. She was usually so calm, so collected, but today she couldn't be. She couldn't settle, knowing the lives of children were at stake. She would hear a woman address her, glancing over. Ah yes, the guildmate. A young girl, several years younger than the Articulation mage. With green hair and light green eyes. The girl was telling her to 'play nice' with the Boatmen, the incompetent fools who clearly weren't taking their mission seriously enough. She said nothing, looking back at her flames, it was a pointless remark — one that didn't require an answer. She had no intention of listening to such advice. The girl would comment on the fire, continuing to advise her not to use up too much magic. "I'll be fine." She replied stoically.

    She would hold the magical flames up consistently for a little longer, pushing the ship towards its targeted location. It wasn't long before she would hear Yona summon her to come over. She ceased the fire, turning away from the edge of the boat. Quickly stalking across the ship, she saw it before she even got the ships edge, the chaos that lay before them. The wreckage from the amusement park ship, floating around in the rocky waters, bodies of adults and children trying to stay afloat scattered amongst the debris. The sight that lay before Amalie only seemed to fuel her anger. How could someone allow this to happen? Surely they should have better safety measures in place other than just lifejackets. Seeing of all those children, terrified, attempting to stay afloat in the turbulent waters. It made her blood boil.

    She joined the green haired girl on the other side of the ship, scanning the area. She turned her head around, pointing to one of the passing boatmen. "Lower the lifeboats!" She ordered, before looking back to the carnage in front of them. "Let's try to get the children safe first, I heard reports of monsters in the area. If you see anything, shout Amalie, and I'll rush to aid as soon as I'm able." She told her guildmate, it was rather a crude introduction of her name, but the only sort she had time for. The girls didn't have time to exchange pleasantries, not when lives were at stake. Amalie would hoist herself up, lifting her foot onto the rail of the ship, she would push herself up to stand on its edge. Magic would soar from her core, up through her throat as she called her first command. "Flight."

    The air around her body would shift, as though she was all of a sudden, as light as a feather. Her body would levitate off of the edge of the boat, and she would soar out over the rocky seas. She could feel the harsh winds attempted to push her off course; she fought against it. Lowering herself to so that she was hovering closer the sea, she counted as many bodies as she could. Trying to work out how to work her next spell. She didn't have a lot of magic that helped others, most of her magic was offensive, so she would need to get creative. The magic rose up through her body once more, pouring out of her as she spoke. "Globe." The words reverberated through the air loudly. Spheres of wind magic would appear around her, multiplying in mass to match the numbers she could see. Then they would float down towards those in the water, enveloping any adults and children she could see. Surrounding them and one by one, the air bubbles would lift them up into the air. Amalie felt the strain, using her magic to carry so many wasn't easy. She directed them over to the lifeboats and the main boat. Attempting to distribute as many as she could safely.

    It wasn't long before several of the children were already safely moved to the lifeboats, and the boatmen were quickly going about handing out towels to dry them and checking them over for any injuries. Things were going acceptably so far; they still had a number to get out of the water yet though. Amalie noticed in the distance the water seemed, disturbed, she looked over it she saw a horde of shadows making their way towards them. It appeared that the sea monsters were coming. She would fly ahead, instructing her orbs to continue their work. In her mind, she reviewed her magical options. She was in truth, somewhat limited, what with all the people still floating in the water she had to make sure she didn't accident assist in any casualties. "Something's coming." She called over to the other girl.
