    As the parade floats pulled to a stop, Nessa climbed down, grabbing a towel and dabbing the forehead. She turns to the Valkyries with a grin, "Thanks girls, that was awesome." She said to them with a beaming smile, Tiphanae reached over and patted her on the arm."Anytime Nessa, We are just happy you allowed us to partake in this human experience, this festival seems quite enjoyable," She said looking around at all of the festivities. "You're welcome to stay and have fun." The girls looked at Ellamora, who shook her head. "We have to return to Valhalla, there are... things that need attending to." She said with a stern look at the girls. A part of Nessa wanted to ask what, but from the seriousness on Ellamora's face, she quickly realised this wasn't the time or place. She waved goodbye and watched as Tiphanae summoned the portal to Valhalla.

    Once the girls were gone, Nessa turned to walk along. She had intended to change before enjoying the festivities, her outfit was nice but all that dancing had worked up a sweat. She was warm and wanting to change into something lighter and more freeing. She began to head back towards the guild, moving away from the booths. She glanced around, enjoying the sight of the Festival taking place, this was nice. Seeing her guild being appreciated and celebrated. As she walked along, she spotted the Canal that flowed through town. She walked over to it, getting a sense of nostalgia. This was where she met Aven, she sighed at the thought of him. She hadn't seen Aven for a while, for a start she had been pretty busy as of late, what with becoming a Guild Ace and all. Plus there was that note. A part of her was anxious about bumping into him, what if he brought it up? Did he know she'd seen it? It was just so confusing right now.

    Aven strolled along the Canal, still aglow from the splendor of the Parade. Truly, sight to behold, though he wished he'd been up there with them. Another time, perhaps: it'd been a long two months for him, being away from the guild, and walking along, he couldn't help but recall the reason why. A few months prior, he'd been on a job with Nessa, and he realized, in a moment of clarity, that he was slowly being outclassed, her growth monumental compared to his. It was a great weakness of him and his magic, he found out, a design flaw that he never could have anticipated: without any links to emotion, his magic refused to grow with his desire to become stronger, like other wizards.

    Aven knew that, if he was to stand as a member of Radiant Light, he would need to become much stronger than he was before; if he was resolved to help defeat Castor alongside Aviel and the Valkyrie, he would need to reach an entirely new level than even that. His gait was even and calculated, bringing him to skirt the edge of one of the many Canals that ran through Magnolia. It was the same Canal he'd met Nessa the first time, and oddly, his step faltered, forcing him to catch his weight with a quick counterstep. A light, bemused voice rang out beside him, as an exceed-sized, armored angel materialized beside him, floating leisurely along. A bit of daydreaming, Aven? It's not like you to be so careless. I'd take one guess as to who you're thinking about, hm?"

    Aven shook his head mirthlessly. Ever since he'd grown strong enough in Radiance, Aviel had been able to manifest a physical presence though him. That being said, he was much more talkative in his newfound form, company that while Aven appreciated, involved dealing the latter's laser sharp perception. It was difficult, if not impossible to hide anything from the miniature Seraph. "It's not a matter of guessing, Aviel, you know full well, and I trust you to keep it locked away behind that hood of yours." They'd grown closer over the last few months of training, him and Aviel: he'd found out, the Angel had kept a healthy dose of his human side, for better or worse. Personally, Aven thought it for the better, by a long shot.

    A particular magicalsignature pinged Aven's senses, and he couldn't hide the smile on his face as he broke into a light jog, waving to it's owner. "Nessa! Wait up!" After he and Aviel were caught up, he positioned himself alongside her, matching her stride. "It's been a while, good to see you again; you were brilliant in the Parade!"

    Nessa was staring at the canal water lost in thought. She didn't know how to handle this situation, and it wasn't like she had anyone she could talk to. That note that Aven had left behind in her room that day had been very private. The thought of sharing it with anyone was an impossible one, and yet she so badly wanted to ask someone, anyone for advice. Her closest, and most dear friends...may well be...in love with her. She brought a hand up and ran it through her slightly damp hair. How did she process this? Even after all the time, night after night of reading the note over and over. Trying to see if she was interpreting it wrong. Surely she was mistaken; Aven couldn't love her. He was her best friend, and she was...

    Her thoughts were suddenly interrupted by a voice, a rather familiar voice at that. She spun around suddenly, her eyes widening in shock. She almost took a step back but managed to catch herself before she fell into the canal. How was that even possible? That during the very moment, she was processing the quandary caused by his love note, that he would appear. She shook her head, realising what she was doing, she placed on a smile. Listening to his greeting, she laughed, "Er yeah, it  has... been a while I mean." She glanced back at the float, chill out Nessa. She told herself, the last thing she wanted was to make Aven feel awkward or uncomfortable. She looked back at him, "Thanks, it was pretty fun. Are you looking forward to your fight?" She asked, there next part of the parade was the Battle portions. Some of the other members of the guild had volunteered to take on challengers to test their magic against them. It was pretty exciting stuff, Nessa was thrilled to see her guild's event get such an active response.

    Nessa noticed something, or preferably someone flying around next to him. She blinked for a moment, trying to grasp who it was. Then after a moment, it dawned on her. She gasped loudly, "Aviel is that you?!" She asked, leaning in for a closer look. It certainly looked like the angel, except in a much smaller, and much [i]cuter[/u] form. Nessa couldn't help but grin at the sight of the cute little guy.

    Aviel laughed, a sound that almost mimicked the light ringing of silver bells. He floated upward to match Nessa's height, his golden eyes flashing inquisition just as brightly as his expression became. "Right, as always, little one. Well, it's difficult for me to call you that, judging by my stature," He chuckled, an action that caused his body to quiver slightly in it's gravitational defiance, the loftiness of his words diminished in no small part by the innocent, childish voice he spoke with, "It seems the both of you are daydreamers, today. Makes me wonder..." Aven batted him away, sending the angel spiraling over the water, the sound of giggling trailing in his wake.

    Aven shook his head, his exasperation more than evident. "Wonder to yourself, Aviel." A small sigh escaped his lips, and he raised his hands on a half shrug. "He's been manifested for a month and a half now, helping me with my training. He claims that his condensed form has no affect on his temperament or personality, but I can't remember the last time I read of an Angel being impish. It sounds contradictory to me." Aviel was steadily gaining on the two, in no particular hurry. A small turnabout, and Aven was smiling brightly once more. There was something off about Nessa, her emotions seemed jumbled and flustered. Perhaps, something had happened while he was gone... he rued the thought, his promise resurfacing in his mind. Hoping was all he could do, for the moment. "Enough about me, though; you've gotten so much stronger since I last saw you! I could sense you from practically the other side of town, just what have you been getting yourself into lately?" It was an exaggeration, of course, he'd only sensed her several hundred meters away, but it was a far cry better than Aven's own presence. Yet another addition to the growing list of downsides of his Circle magic. He'd have to keep a tab, perhaps there were modifications he could attempt to rectify the issues?

    Nessa beamed at Aviel's response, "Oh wow, you're so little, I love it!" She said with a giggle, she kinda wanted to reach over and squeeze one of his cheeks, but she had the feeling the Angel wouldn't appreciate it. Sebastian certainly didn't. "Speaking of small, flying thing, Arielle and Sebastian should be around somewhere." She said glancing around, "They came with my Dad and Edward, my aunt couldn't come cause she's away on work at the moment. Which is a shame cause she would've really enjoyed it." She said, thinking about it, her Aunt had been away for a few months now. They got letters now and then, it seemed when things might be reaching it peeks, something went wrong, and her work was extended. Nessa had the sneaking suspicion whatever she was doing was a little dangerous, something about the vagueness in her aunt's letter just implied it. It wasn't a big deal though; her aunt was one of the strongest women she knew.

    "Daydreaming...what do you mean?" She asked with a confused expression, not sure what he meant. Nessa watched as Aven flicked him over the water, giggling slightly at Aviel's reaction before looking back at Aven. She listened to his comment and flushed slightly. "Ah, I don't know. I just did some jobs and stuff. I guess it was pretty tough, a lot of monsters you know." She said with a casual shrug, she had gotten so used to facing all sorts of beasts these days, she found the more she faced, the less they surprised her. It was strange; she felt so at ease talking to Aven. She was just so comfortable with him, but now there was that weird knot in her stomach. Knowing about that note, maybe I should tell him he dropped it.... She parted her lips, but couldn't bring herself to say it. She couldn't help but feel like it would upset him, or maybe even make him angry. "I'm looking forward to watching your fight, I'm helping judge so I gotta be impartial. But I'll be cheering you on deep down." She said the last part with a whisper and grin. It was a means of bottling it; she just couldn't bring up the poem. She just couldn't bring herself to mention it, plus it wouldn't be fair, not when he had a big fight coming up.

    Aven smiled as she spoke about her family, her wistful tone of voice a simple reminder of how much who cherished those around her. It wasn't foreign to him, not since he'd joined Fairy Tail, at least; it'd become second nature to want to protect each and every member, as they inched their way into his heart. Even Markus, should he get in over his head, Aven would rush to help, though it was hard to imagine the cool-headed Shadow Wizard ever losing control of a situation. There was something about the way Markus did things that irked him, the way he waltzed into any situation as though he'd already prevailed in the encounter. Aven had fought the man himself, and learned that Markus didn't seem to plan too far ahead; instead, he was simply an expert of improvisation, a trait Aven couldn't help but feel a pang jealous over.

    It was a few moments before Aven realized he'd been lost in thought, even the mere concept of Markus and his neutral, 'I don't really care' attitude driving his train of thought up a wall. When did he start caring about what Markus did? It had to be that time at the parade: he'd glimpsed Markus in the crowd, across the way, and ever since, the burning question of where he'd been ached in his mind. Still, it wasn't worth losing sleep over, if Markus was back, they'd have ample time to chat, perhaps even hold a rematch. Certainly, his rival must have gotten stronger...

    Aviel's meandering pursuit picked up pace, as he levitated gently over the water, not a single errant ripple in the surface to announce his presence. That phenomena was actually one of the first mysteries Aviel had unraveled after ascending into Angelhood: his particular pantheon had a strange method of flight, not actually requiring wings at all. In fact, the two wings on his back in the moment, as well as all six that his Ascended form held, had little to no bearing on flight: they were actually defense mechanisms, appendages to lash out flanking assailants and thwart attack patterns that two limbs could not keep up with. After all, many demons and unholy creatures erred toward more than two offensive limbs, not to mention their heads, which normally had means to bite and tear. To counter this, their flight had been based on the nullification of gravity, and the application of trans-positional will magic to move the body in any direction necessary. Not only did Aviel find this method much more practical in a battle maneuverability sense, it removed the glaring weakness possessed by several other pantheons, where by injuring the Angel's wings, one could ground them, and greatly limit their mobility. The side effect of this gravity nullification method, of course, was that no downward force was generated in the process of flight; a trifling matter, in the grand scheme, but Aviel remained an avid researcher of magic, and one could never be certain when even the slightest grain of knowledge would be pertinent.

    Aviel's approach slowed, as he sensed doubt and confusing radiating from Nessa's aura. Peculiar, to be sure, as nothing particularly out of the ordinary had happened in their short encounter; or, at least, not that should evoke such negative emotions. Surprise, perhaps, but she'd already openly expressed that detail, and regardless, from the intensity of the emotions, she was wrestling with something important. It was only conjecture, and it may have been that he hadn't been close enough before, but he hadn't sensed any significant change in her aura since they'd met up with her on the canal. That led Aviel to believe she'd been pondering whatever haunted her for some time now, if it could supersede the usual relaxation he'd seen her exhibit around Aven: the boy tended to have that effect on people. It would certainly explain the jumbled focus she'd displayed when they first caught sight of her- something had been off from the start, she was distracted. He picked up his pace a bit, drawing closer as to rejoin their steady jaunt.

    Aven kept a rhythmic step, a laugh escaping him as Nessa shrugged off her dramatic increase in magic. A common sentiment, he found, in stronger wizards, where they disregarded power as a matter of importance, and one that his Mother had always warned him not to fall into. He didn't see what was so bad about it, really, as being uptight limited one's flexibility, in the personable sense. Mother couldn't be right about everything.... right? Certainly not. "Sounds like you've been in good hands, then. The Valkyrie know how to protect their own, would make me jealous, if I didn't have Aviel watching my back."

    His eyebrows raised at her mention of the Duels. He'd been looking forward to the Festival specifically for that event, the idea of testing his mettle against other powerful wizards in a show match bringing his competitive spirit to a boil. He could almost feel the adrenaline of analyzing an unknown opponent's magic mid-fight, developing a counter-strategy in the heat of the moment! It never occurred to him before, but perhaps he was more like Markus than he realized... "You'll be judging? I figured there was some reason for you not participating as a contestant, but I wouldn't have imagined you'd be an official!" He gave her a winning smile. "It doesn't matter who I face, now, I can't lose; not with you cheering me on from the sidelines!"

    "Oh yeah, the girls have definitely got my back, they've really helped me progress too. It helps that they're all such awesome warriors," She said with a warm smile at the thought of the Valkyries, it was so nice being surrounded by so many friends. It reminded her of a long time ago when she always had a bustling group around her. Only now it was different, at least, she hoped it was. Nessa had already grown so attached to all of them, even Agatha and Scythen. The thought of them leaving her was too painful to comprehend. Still, that magical connection that shared was a reassurance that it wouldn't happen anytime soon. She could feel the bond they shared, even now, making it a little less lonely these days. Just more proof that joining Fairy Tail was the best decision she ever made, she had become so much stronger and gained so many wonderful new friends.

    "What about you, what have you been up to lately?" She asked, A part of her felt bad for not trying a little harder to stay in touch but still. They had gone their separate ways before, gone off to do jobs or tasks and not spoken for a few weeks; it had never been an issue before. But now it felt different; perhaps she had been avoiding him a little. Not wanting to face the truth of what she'd found. But still, the way he was acting now. His casual friendliness, and nonchalant manner.
    Maybe she was wrong about his feelings, he wasn't behaving overly affectionate, or even a little flirtatious. He didn't tease her or touch her unnecessarily. He was courteous and civil, maybe she was getting this all wrong. But since having read the note, she had gone over and reviewed the entirety of the time they'd known each other. Looking for clues or signs that he was truly in love with her. As much as she didn't want to admit it, know that she thought about it, there had been signs. She had just been too oblivious to pick up on them at the time. That time they had done that job in the unknown lands, retrieving stolen cargo from the bandits. There was that weird moment where the head of the Neko tribe had forced her into that outfit. Aven's reaction, she hadn't thought anything of him being embarrassed for her, but now that she had read this note, the whole situation had a different outlook. Had he actually been leaning in for a kiss?


    Then was that time at his house, in his bedroom, when they had shared that conversation about her mother. There was a moment they shared; they had been so close. Had she been giving him the wrong message, she knew she shouldn't have gone into his room. Then there had been that drunken night together, she couldn't remember all of it, but somehow they had ended up waking up in each other's arms. She had trying so hard to justify that night as much as she could but to no avail. Anyway, could look over the events of that and clarify her behaviour as misleading.

    However, despite having all these thoughts and reflections, there was one question she just wasn't ready to address. How did she feel about him?" All she could clarify was that she cared about him deeply and that without him in the guild she would've truly been lost. But the wall she had put up around her heart after Rex wasn't ready to crumble, and any considerations of love were met with the bitter reminder of his face. The result of letting someone in, and the process that followed, initially scarring her. I don't deserve to be loved... It was a dark thought, and yet one she could not shake, even after all the kind things Aven had said that night.


    Aven's next words only caused the knot inside her to tighten uncomfortably, 'I can't lose; not with you cheering me on'. There it was, another sign. Before she would've taken it as a mere commenting regarding her friendship, but now, now she was looking at everything differently. And it was hard to unsee. "I'm sure you'll smash it, Aven. You always do." She said in response, trying not to let him on to how she was feeling. She glanced over at Aviel, wondering if he was buying it. From what she remembered, he was especially sharp, did he know about Aven's feeling too?

    There it was again, that doubt and confusion: Aviel had seen it enough to know, now, watching from her reaction, listening to her words- it was undoubtedly because of that note. He'd been watching, of course, when Aven's hastened retreat left the letter prematurely in Nessa's clutch, the aftermath of which he'd been expecting for some time. It seemed Nessa was withdrawing from Aven, a recoil stemming from uncertainty, and... was that, pain? There was distance forming between them, and it was beginning to dawn on him that there were issues originating beyond Aven himself; in fact, he'd take a venture to guess Aven wasn't the primary cause, though he'd like to confirm that with the girl herself. Perhaps, he could have a conversation with her, but he couldn't have Aven around for that particular chat. He hadn't brought up the subject, and in fact, hadn't planned to for quite a while, as it wouldn't help the fact at all.

    Aven grinned, looking ahead while they walked. "Aviel has been training me to use Radiance more efficiently. It's quite different from my normal magic, on a fundamental level, since it works off of emotion and will, rather than logic and reason. I wouldn't say I've gotten stronger in a strict sense, but I'm definitely more confident!" His body pulsed with golden energy for a moment, and he laughed. "Fat lot of good it'll do me in the duels, though, since Radiance can't be used against good people. Perhaps I can shield my opponent, for courtesy!" Being around Nessa again was a breath of fresh air, maybe it was time for another job with Radiant Light? They hadn't done too much as a group yet, and Arcadia was still a practical stranger in terms of actual knowledge of each other. He'd place that near the top of his priorities.

    Nessa listened as Aven went on to explain that he had been getting trained in using Radiance by Aviel. It made sense, Aviel had been the one who pushed Aven to release it that time. Plus although Nessa wasn't entirely sure of their history, she had some sense that they were connected magically. She laughed at Aven's comment about Radiance only targetting bad people, "Yeah true, but that's what makes it so great though," She told him, it was true, having a magic that couldn't hurt people who didn't deserve it was just a reflection of how pure-hearted Aven was.

    "Ness! Ness!" A voice called from a short distance away, Nessa turned to recognise it as her younger cousin Edward. The twelve-year-old ran over and threw his arms around her Nessa. She beamed at the sight of him, before looking up to see her Father following with Sebastian and Arielle in tow. As her Dad reached her, he leaned over and kissed her on the forehead. "That was a wonderful performance, my dear," He straightened and looked at Aven, offering him a friendly smile. "Aven good to see you again," He said. Edward let go of Nessa, throwing Aven a short glance before returning his gaze to his cousin. "You were so awesome Nessa; your magic is awesome!"

    "Thanks, I'm glad you all enjoyed it, What are you guys planning to do now?"
    She asked, feeling a sense of relief for the distraction. "We're just enjoying the booths at the moment before we head over to watch the fights. Aven, while I have you, do you think I could bend your ear for a moment, As I understand it Nessa tells me you use Circle magic. I'm currently working of an alchemic compound that I'm having trouble with, and I feel like I may be able to overcome some of the complications if I can figure out the structure of the magic circle I'm using." He reached into his pocket and pulled out a black notebook, causing Nessa to roll her eyes. It didn't matter where her Dad was he always had that dated all notebook scribbling with notes and various breakdowns of his work. Nessa didn't, however, miss the opportunity, "Actually Aven, I need to head to the guild to get change, mind if I catch up with you later?" she asked.

    Aven's smile persisted as the family had a quick chat, but his surprise was thinly veiled when Richard- Mr. Lux, inquired about a magical quandary. It was the first time he'd ever been asked to apply his craft to another person's magic, let alone the analytical sense. His experience with other wizards magic, to that point, had been limited to a hastened glance mid-combat, to gauge the power and type of spell being cast, identification of sorts. To delve into, and possibly modify, a foreign magic was an entirely new prospect, and an intriguing one at that. He gave Nessa an excited glance, only for his hopes to be ushered into fruition, as she excused him from their brief reunion, postponing the rest for later that day. He was more that happy to oblige, the elation in his voice almost palpable. "Of course, we can talk later at the guild hall. I'll see you there," His attention immediately shifted to Mr. Lux, all business and technical talk, as though the situation had flipped a switch in him, "So, Mr. Lux, you're working with alchemy: no doubt, you're using an integral matrix, to postpone any obtrusive chemical reactions... The exchange of technical jargon faded into the side street, as Aven, Richard, and Edward headed back the way they came, pouring over the notes in the little black book.

    It was only Aviel and Nessa, at that point, the festival having drawn the majority of canal traffic away. A moment passed, in silence, as Aven and Richard's chatter faded into nothingness, and the sudden weight of what was to come bore down on the area. With a small gesture, Aviel's form shifted, and the light clack of sandals on the cobble announced his ascended form, his six golden wings fanning out to stretch, and settling with a slight puff of wind as they neatly folded. It was taxing on Aviel to maintain such a physical presence, to the point he would be unable to summon the slightest bit of strength, but it only felt right to address Nessa in this way. He was, after all, inquiring of a very personal issue, one that would not be given the proper respect if spoken in the voice of a cherub. Once more, his voice was subtle and smooth, like silk, and Aviel regarded Nessa with a somber expression. "I can sense the weight on your shoulders, Nessa. You read the note, then, I take it?" He didn't need to wait for an answer, her reaction was more than enough. A small sigh escaped the Seraph's chest, like a dove released from a cage. "I thought as much. Aven is new to the outside world, the blame for which, I would venture, rests squarely on my own shoulders. Drani took after Hakon more than I'd thought she would, it was a mistake that I never revealed myself to her personally. Regardless, he'd not the slightest inkling the impact such a composition could have, especially if found without context." His eyes wandered off toward the distant vision of the Guild Hall, and he began a graceful glide along the canal. "Come, walk with me. We can speak on the way."

    Nessa looked on as her family along with Aven began to stroll along, quickly lost in the technical talk that was alien to Nessa. She smiled, pleased to see them all enjoying themselves. Her family didn't get much time to go out together anymore, with her always working. Antoinette away on business and Edward enrolled in secondary school with several extracurricular activities signed up. They all seemed to have such hectic schedules these days, catching each other for a family dinner was a once in a blue moon treat for them. It was kind of sad at times, Nessa getting home in the early hours of the morning. Coming home to a dark house, a dinner wrapped in clingfilm left on the side with a small note. Those were the only times she missed when she had more freetime, in every other moment of her crazy life as an Ace of Fairy Tail, she couldn't get enough of.

    After a moment Nessa realised that Aviel hadn't gone with them, she turned to look at him in slightly awkward confusion. It was then he began to transform and returned to the form she had initially known him for. Once again a sight of magnificent beauty and radiant light, the Angel stood before her, as magnificent as ever. She felt nervous suddenly, unsure of what was to come. As he looked her with that serious expression, the words that followed caused a sinking feeling in her stomach. Her nerves had been justified, yt she had in no way expected Aviel to address the situation so directly. So he knows, She thought as realisation sunk in completely. She closed her eyes, taking a breath as he continued to talk. She could feel herself getting emotional, but this was not the time nor place to lose composure. After taking a moment she managed to steady herself. Slowly she opened her eyes, nodding once more. She began to follow her, and eyes pointed towards the ground.

    "So are you saying the note doesn't mean what I think it does? Am I misinterpreting it as something other than...intimate feelings towards me." She asked, a part of her didn't want to have this conversation with Aviel. Although it would be nice to speak about it with someone, Aviel was so close to Aven. Talking about Aven behind his back, it only added to the guilt she was already feeling — the guilt of having found such a personal note, of keeping it from him. Keeping your own secrets was one thing, but keeping someone else's without their knowledge. Nessa just felt so torn at point, but she had no clue what action she should take up. She looked up at Aviel, her face finally reflecting her true feelings. No longer wearing a mask, after all, Aven wasn't here to see it. "Do you think I should tell him I found it?" She asked. She had gone over the potential consequences in her mind, and the possibility of Aven laughing it off and saying it was a joke or for someone else seemed impossible. The alternative reactions, the anger, or upset, Nessa didn't know if she could handle it. Not from Aven, anyone but him.

    Aviel's stride was strange to behold, his upper half appearing to glide, but sure enough, he was walking nonetheless. He glanced over as she looked to him for guidance, guilt and confusion so plain on her face: he wondered how long she'd held it. Once again, that nagging feeling of missing a piece of the bigger picture prodded at the back of his mind, an annoyance at such a crucial juncture. It wasn't often his instincts were wrong, but he'd nothing concrete to go off of. What was he missing? A slow shake of of his head began Aviel's response. "That depends on your definition of 'intimate'. Knowing Aven as long as you have, I hope this doesn't come as a shock- though I suppose there may have been some miscommunication at the Valkyrie's feast- but Aven's never had the talk. It would surprise me greatly if he was even remotely aware of what intimacy implies, given his vast experience around women. Quite simply, he's navigating through uncharted territory, feelings he doesn't understand; make no mistake, though, the letter was for you, and you alone." Aviel gave her a soft smile. "It's not a matter of whether you should tell him, but how you feel. I can tell you with certainty, the boy is not weak of heart, and he did make you a promise: if you don't return his feelings, it's better to let him know, so the two of you can go back to being teammates, and friends. It may sting him, but he's strong, he can handle a bit of pain. It'd certainly be no more intense than the guilt you're putting yourself through right now on his behalf." Her heart was a jumbled mess, even his angelic senses couldn't make heads or tails of what she was feeling. Somewhere in the chaos, he could sense feelings for someone, perhaps... even multiple people? It's possible the situation was far more complicated than he realized.

    Aviel was a wise and as succinct ever, his words sunk it as they walk, clarifying things for her. She was surprised to know what Aven had never had that experience before, maybe that's what it was. He was so pure, almost too pure. She could pretend as much as she could but it wasn't like she had experienced such urges and desires before, she was a woman after all. Or maybe she was just trying to justify this in her head. One thing was clear though; Aven had meant to give that to her. Eventually. Knowing him, he probably would've done it in the sweet and wonderful way; he also had a knack for that. Her heart ached a little at the thought of him, clueless to how she really was. Although she didn't really understand that herself, everything was just so jumbled.


    "How I feel..." She repeated back, she brought a hand up to her head and ran his fingers through her hair. How do I feel? She couldn't deny there were times she had looked at Aven and thought that he was undeniably handsome. A perfect gentleman and suitor. He meant so much to her, when she was around him she felt happy and at ease, more so than with anyone else she knew. Yet amongst all these thoughts and feelings, it was a like a dark cloud lingered over them, blurring the lines that should be clear. I should love him... I couldn't pick anyone better but... There was the flash of Rex's face in her mind. She closed her eyes once again. "Aviel... I'm going to tell you something..." She said, looking at him once more. She stopped walking and turned to face the angel, her eyes welling up, she couldn't help herself anymore her feelings were spilling out. For so long she could bury them away and ignore them. But all of this had clawed them up to the surface, unveiling a dark truth that lived within. "Something happened... a while ago. But I don't... I can't move forward, and a part of me thinks I never will. I loved someone once... and what happened ..." Her words drifted off, her voice crackling as she continued, her hands trembling at her sides. "I don't know.. if I can...love anyone again."

    There it was, the missing piece: a downpour of tears, followed by a torrent of emotion, her aura rife with a torturous negativity. Despair, anger, betrayal; her grief flooded Aviel's senses, almost clouding his vision in a swift darkness, tendrils of dark emotion grasping at the air around the young girl. The pain had taken on a life of its own, been allowed to fester and grow, probably over years. His smile faded in the wake of the terror that had emerged, and he knew in an instant that he needed to be careful. It had a hold on her, that much was apparent, and even if Aviel did everything in his power, such an emotional barricade was beyond his ability to soothe. His angelic power would be of no use, as it was born from Nessa herself, and thus, shared her protection against angelic interference. No, this was an enemy that had to be felled by Nessa herself, all Aviel could do was provide support.

    So, he did the only thing in his power: Aviel stopped and faced her, closing his eyes, as his wings unfolded and gently wrapped around Nessa's back, pulling her into a downy embrace. She was trembling something awful, as though the pain had left her cold, both inside and out. It wasn't far from the truth, he was sure, and even if his embrace couldn't provide the warmth needed to thaw her heart, he knew whose could. "I don't know what happened, but you've been cut deep, little one; I see that, now. Such injuries do not heal easily, leaving scars that can last a lifetime. It must be unbearable, to reopen that wound, to face the pain once again." His embrace became a bit stiffer, as his muscles contracted, her grief attempting to eat away at his form. It was risky to be touching her, negative human emotions a near poison to most angels, but Aviel did not live for centuries to be beaten by trifling pain; he'd endured far worse than necrosis in his time. "The heart is both fragile, and stronger than steel. You say you cannot love again, but you've a heart still, I can sense it with all my being; it may be broken, but what is broken can always be mended." He released her softly, stepping back a pace to give her room, his wings folding once more. "Please, share your burden with me: it's the least I can do, after all you've done for Aven."

    The tears would fall relentlessly, her hands rose, wiping them away as they fell, but to no avail. They wouldn't stop, as Aviel wrapped his wings around her and pulled her towards him. She felt herself unravel, escalating into sobs. She hated this. Hating how weak and helpless she felt, she wanted more than everything to be able to get past thing. But she could, it was like the dark ties off her past had wrapped themselves around her heart, sealing it off. Essentially, leaving her unable to grasp her true feelings, and even the possibility of admitting this fault to another made her feel like she would crumble apart into nothing. She had been holding herself together for so long perhaps too long at this point. Bottling up every anxious thought, every bit of self-doubt or sadness she felt — the betrayal and breach of trust from Rex, the way Cassie and all her friends abandoned her, the way the locals looked at her for so long with a sickening judgement. It was all so much, and much of it had been eating away at her for so long.

    "I-I'm s-sorry," She croaked out between sobs, "I-I want to be ok... I really do..I-I just don't know how..." She continued, her face buried in his chest, clinging almost as though her life depended on. It was almost as though the cap had been turned and now it was all spilling out. "He ...he hurt me...so I d-did something and...I-I was punished for it." She said between sniffles, trying hard to compose herself enough to explain herself to him. "I h-had to tell my a-aunt...but I had no idea...I-I didn't realise it would turn out like that." She knew she wasn't actually telling him the whole story, but she could barely get the words out, let alone format a compelling story. "I lost everything Aviel...my mother..m-my boyfriend... all m-my friends. And now I finally have something amazing...but I'm scared... I'm so scared I'm going to lose it all... I don't think I could survive losing it all again...I just c-couldn't..." She lost it again, falling into another series of heavy sobs, bringing her hands to her eyes, she covered her face. She didn't want to be seen like this, she hated getting emotional, but at this point, she couldn't turn back. Maybe it was the air the angel gave off, that he would listen to her sins without judgement. That for once she could show her true self without consequence.

    Aven's attention never broke from her, his eyes brimmed with tears, which he fought back. This was Nessa's time to cry, to let go of all the pent up sadness and misery, he had to be her anchor, unmoving and steadfast. The more she spoke, however, the more he realized that it wasn't possible: it was going to take time, reassurance, to help Nessa past the emotional wall she faced. No trumpets or angelic power could fell this Jericho, and worse yet, imbedded deep in the anguish lie a malignant curse, feeding her dark emotions. A constant struggle for Aviel over the past centuries, the story of his existence: his inability to interfere. In his time as a mortal, he'd devoted his life to helping those in need, but so often as an Angel, he was relegated to merely watching silently, providing the minute of guidance. He was sick of it, having so much power, yet still being powerless to help.

    Moving past his own inhibitions, there was still plenty of hope in the situation, and it was closer than Nessa realized. "Losing so much, so young... I'm sure it would be easier to let go, to give up on happiness and shut out the world. But, I'm sorry to say, it's a bit too late for that." He extended a hand to rest on her shoulder. "Alverons are stubborn; always have been, always will be. More than that, even, we're bound by our word, a pact greater than magic itself. If Aven's promised to stay by you, there isn't a force in this world, or the next, that could force him to break that oath. Even if you turn him down, even if you spurned him, just like his namesake, he'll always be there when you need him most, because that's the kind of person he is." A soft smile graced his lips. "You didn't hear this from a Seraph, but selfishness isn't always a sin: it's okay to be happy, to want the best for yourself. Be proud of who you are, and you'll find that moving forward is all but natural."

    Nessa stood there, sobbing for a little longer as she listened to Aviel's kind words. Saying nothing as the tears began to slow and she began to compose herself once more. Her breathing grew less erratic, she took slow deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth, a method of bringing herself back to normal taught to her years ago by her Aunt. As it began to help, the crying subsided to the occasional sniffle, what remained of her tear-fest being red tinge around her eyes and a stuffy nose. After taking a moment, she wiped her face and looked up at Aviel."Thank you Aviel," She said softly, her voice a little hoarse from the crying. "I'm going to try and get a better sense of how I feel. I think once I work on ...getting over whatever is it holding me back.. maybe I... I don't know..." Her words drifted off, she didn't want to say it out loud, she wasn't going to force herself to love Aven, but if she wanted her heart to heal, she had to consider it. So far, she had been thinking only of whether Aven actually loved her and if she was misunderstanding things. Now that she knew, she couldn't just toss his feelings aside; she had to give it some real thought. That at least was the only thing that made sense right now. She turned to continue to make her way towards the guild.

    They arrived at the guild which was busier than ever, serving drinks and food to guests and visitors enjoying the festival. She turned to Aviel, "I'm just going to head to my office and change quickly." She said before turning away. She made her way up to the second floor where her office was situated, heading inside. She closed the door behind her, taking a moment she leaned against the door. That had been an emotional ride; she needed to sort herself out before the battles began. She couldn't very well be a mess of emotions while trying to judge; she had to be calm and collected, she really didn't want to let Sorano down after all. She began to get changed into her second outfit, one much like her usual attire of a white and violet dress. She had decided she wanted to appear normal for the fight portion of the festival. She actually had a third outfit for the cherry blossom festival, but it was too soon to put that on. She would save that for once the fights were over.

    Unbelievable. Absurd! The crowd traveling through the corridor of the Arena cut apart like the red sea, as an overwhelmingly thick aura bid them aside. Drani Kilandre Alveron was no stranger to anger, far from it, but the fury that exuded from her body this day was not of the ordinary sort. Fueled by broken expectations, and the bitter taste of dishonor, her magical presence ran rampant around her, barely restrained as her thoughts stewed. To think that any son of mine could have his concentration broken so easily, by such a paltry annoyance, as that! What purpose does this Fairy Tail even serve, if it cannot sharpen his wit and talent? Her face had long since twisted into a scowl. Aven had grown in magical skill, perhaps, but he was the same as ever, losing focus when it mattered the most. She couldn't help but recall their countless training sessions, his constant incompetence when it came to pressing the advantage, finishing a fight. It was the same, every time: he would start a battle strong, establish his ground, then falter when it came to the finish, resulting in a swift strike to the opening he left. 'If we do not learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it', a phrase Drani was quite fond of. Not that the woman was particularly fond of anything, at the moment.

    Drani gritted her teeth, the sound of her boots clacking angrily on the concrete. If Aven had simply lost, it could've been chalked up to facing a superior opponent. After all, Leona Jarnefeldt was the Guildmaster of Silver Wolf, it would have been a simple matter of experience. Instead, he'd displayed a clear, unbridled advantage, all but guaranteeing his victory within the first minute of the fight. Not only that, but he'd summoned more Circles than he could manage, some newfangled attempt at showmanship, and subsequently lost control of their function. She scoffed to herself; did her son really believe she hadn't read through his notes? She knew exactly how his magic worked, and not a moment went by in that fight that she wasn't holding back the urge to descend the stands and smack him upside the head. The boy knew full well his opponent didn't have the means to stop a full barrage from his circles, he learned that not a few moves in, when she'd taken the spells head on. He held back to such a degree, her aura had bent the seat she was sitting on.

    It was no matter, by that point, as she exited the Arena, storming toward the exit Aven would likely emerge from. She'd see to it that he left Fairy Tail for good, studying under her tutelage alone. She'd been lax, allowing him to pursue his silly side project of Circle Magic, joining a magical guild to make friends, and go on adventures. A mistake, as she saw it, and one she intended to rectify: the only good that came of it might, perhaps, have been the Lux girl he'd brought home. Something about the girl sparked recollection in her mind, but she still couldn't place it. A pity, really, that she couldn't use her magic to jog her own memory.

    Speak of the devil... There was the girl, straight in her path. She'd grown in strength considerably, she could tell; a rumor had reached her ear that someone of the Lux family had become a Wizard Saint, but the details had been muddled by various slander and talk of collusion with the Council. What was she doing here? Looking for Aven, most likely, but there wasn't a need for that. For the moment, the Lux girl was nothing but a distraction for her her boy. It was time she made that little tidbit clear. "Miss Lux, how long has it been? You have impeccable timing: I was just searching for a representative of Fairy Tail, to speak of the withdrawal of my son." Drani's words were polite enough, but the venom in her magical presence alone was enough to alert even a passerby that this was no cordial conversation.

    The fights had come to an end, and Nessa felt pretty overwhelmed. They had all been exciting in their own right, between Johann and Mura tying because of Johann's random decision to heal Mura at the last minute. A concept Nessa still couldn't wrap her head around. Then there had been Aven's and Leona's fight, something she had not been expecting either. At one point it seemed like Aven was about to win, then all of a sudden things got out of hand. Next thing she knew Aven had surrendered. She wanted to speak to him about it, but there was a sense of hesitation along with that thought. Because she hadn't really dealt with Aven after her talked with Aviel, the fight had soon, and they had been called off to play their respective roles, him as participant and her as a judge.

    She had intended to return to the guildhall once more to change into her final outfit for the festival. Now that she had participated in the parade and done her part of a judge for the fights. She could finally take the time to enjoy the festival. She had yet to sample some of the stuff at the booths, plus there were all the pretty sights yet to be appreciated. She was excitedly to let loose and blow off a little steam; heavens knows she had earned it. Nessa heard a voice calling her as she walked along, she turned her head, seeing someone approaching her briskly. Someone she was not expecting. It was none other than Aven's mother, Drani Alveron. Nessa smiled at the sight of the woman, "Good evening Mrs Alveron, it's a pleasure to see you again. Did you enjoy the fight?" She asked politely.

    Nessa expected that she had only come over to exchange pleasantries, alas this seemed not to be the case, as Drani's asked to discuss with her about withdrawing Aven from the guild. Nessa froze, her smile faltered, Drani's words leaving her in momentary shock. Nessa's eyes narrowed slightly, her good mood replaced with slight anger. She turned to face the older woman face on, still holding her smile in place. Although now, they were a thin sense of tension in the air around her. "Uh huh, Is he with you? Or are you coming to me of your own volition? Because if it's the latter, then excuse me for saying so, but unless Aven has suddenly become a minor, then you don't have the authority to make such a request. May I ask why you want to remove him from the guild?" Her tone was civil but firm, a while ago, Nessa may have been a little timider towards Drani, what with how intimidating and powerful the woman was. But this wasn't dinner around the woman's house; this was her asking to have Aven stripped of his position as a member of Fairy Tail. As his friend and an Ace of Fairy Tail, this wasn't something she would sit by and allow to happen.

    Drani's thin smile dropped in an instant as the girl before her responded with as much vigor as her own opening remark. There was fire behind her eyes, a confidence that the girl had been lacking when they first met. It was an improvement, she'd admit, but not one she'd wish in a verbal opponent. Drani's stance became stiffer, more imposing, as she took a second glance over Nessa's features, a memory clawing at her mind. Something in that defiant, unbudging glare... Drani's face lit up with recognition. Antoinette... It was impossible, wasn't it? She was the spitting image, but that cougar was still on the prowl, Drani would have heard if she'd found a man, let alone had a daughter. No, Antoinette wasn't her mother, but she did have a Sister once: Cordelia. A niece, then, no doubt sharing the same monstrous magically Prowess as her Aunt. The girl had gone from a nuisance to an obstacle, and if she was anything like Antoinette, Drani wouldn't be able to simply dodge around her interference. Still, there were ways she could convince the girl.

    Drani let her aura flow freely, hoping the added weight would aid the impact of her words, though it was a fleeting hope at that. There was no longer a world of difference between them; only a horizon. "Excuse me, Nessa Lux, but I think you forget just who I am: I am Drani Kilandre Alveron, a General of the Fioran Military, and Aven's mother. It isn't a matter of law: as a member of the Alveron family, Aven will heed my words regardless." Her eyes were narrowed to a point. "You wouldn't need to ask such a rediculous question, had you been watching the same fight I did. Weren't you a judge? It's clear as day, Aven is not fit for wizarding, nor has he ever been. This was an eventuality, not a coincidence; I knew from the moment he left the house five years ago that I would need to intervene at some point."

    Drani paused, taking a short calming breath. Anger was a habit of hers, but it wouldn't aid her in this instance. Not against an opponent that held so many cards. "Listen, both you and I  know he is a powerful magic user. I've seen his work, I know my son's abilities better than anyone. All the same, he'll never make it as a wizard, for one simple reason: he's too soft. Tell me, exactly what do you think would have happened if that was a real battle, and he passed out in front of a dark wizard? Do you think they would have shown him the mercy he showed them? Do you think he could have let those magic bolts hit their mark, even if he knew their target was out to kill him?" She shook her head. "Of course not. My son hasn't the heart to kill a fly, much less stain his hands in the blood of another person, regardless how black or tainted. He would try to help them, lead them to a brighter future, even at the cost of his safety." Drani's lips formed a solid line. "Does that sound familiar to you, Nessa Cordelia Lux?"

    Nessa listened patiently as Aven's mother went on about who she was, she sighed. Nessa may have been naive half the time, but she wasn't blind to what this woman was trying to do. Why did people always have to do this, read out their full names and spell out extravagant titles just to seem important? Nessa, who was a humble girl from Magnolia, had spent her entire life growing up in a small household that barely fit her whole family. She simply did not care who you were or what your status was. If Drani was trying to intimidate or impress Nessa, it wasn't working. She was a girl that based her judgements on people's nature, and how they behaved, not their place in society.

    "See what you're failing to understand, is that family obligation is not enough to change the rules we stick by. If Aven wants to leave the guild, it has to come from him, not you. I don't care who you are to him and how much he heeds your word, this is a matter of procedure." She replied, standing her ground, she found Drani's means of belittling her was slowly causing her temper to rise. She generally had respect for Drani when she first met her, but it was being chipped away the more she spoke. Her condescending talk about the fight, made Nessa roll her eyes. "No, Mrs Alveron, the only thing ridiculous thing about that fight, is your perspective. You do understand that this wasn't a battle to the death, comparing it to Aven on an actual mission is foolish. Had he allowed those bolts to hit Leona, he would have killed her. You realise had he done this, the repercussions of such actions would have been catastrophic for both Aven and Fairy Tail. Killing the Guild Master of Silver Wolf would not only have massive political effects on the guilds alignment, but it could also send us into a full out guild war with a guild we're supposed to be allied with. Aven's decision to lose the match was neither soft nor cowardly, but brave and intelligent. It takes a great deal of strength to overcome the pride that influences what's best for you over what's best for the majority. I didn't expect YOU to be so narrow-minded as to be unable to see that." Nessa's words were sharp, no longer civil. How could this woman not see something so clear-cut, a war between Fairy Tail and Silver Wolf was unthinkable most likely resulting in mass casualties around Fiore. Not to mention all the West Fiore Trading Company, if Fairy Tail were forced to go Dark again, they would also have no choice but to turn against Fairy Tail as well, a dreaded thought if there ever was one.

    "As for whether Aven would be able to kill a wizard to protect himself remains to be seen, this fight is not proof enough to conclude that. Besides shouldn't it be better that he considers alternate options to killing, it is not always the best choice Mrs Alveron, despite what you may think. Choosing not to kill doesn't make you weak by any means.  You really think dragging him home and keeping him shut behind closed doors is going to help him grow stronger, did you do that when you were in the actively serving in the Military or did you go out and deal with things face on? How is he ever going to learn how to face that situation like that if he doesn't experience it himself? Instead, you would rather shut him behind closed doors and subject him to a life of confinement, imagine if that had been you Mrs Alveron, locked away from fulfilling your dream because one person was too blind to see your true potential. Imagine all your work undone because one of your parents, who is supposed to push you forward in life would rather suppress you just because they don't think you can handle it." She continued, her words were filled with a determined conviction.

    As Nessa caught Drani's last remark, there was a pause. A silence as it dawned her, just exactly what it was Aven's mother was getting at. Nessa's face dropped, her features expressionless, devoid of emotion. The air began to fill with intense magical energy; a soft light began to glow around her like a fierce aura, radiating with a ferocity that could be felt for miles around. Her eyes would glow white, as all of her sources of magic flew to the surface. Deep inside of Nessa's soul, a dark demonic taint would stir inside of her, allowing some of the demonic magic to spill out of her and mix into her aura. Those that sensed the aura would feel drained, blades of grass would wilt and die, drained of their lifeforce which was pooling into Nessa with each passing moment.

    When Nessa spoke, her voice was laced with a cold fury. "See what you have just done Mrs Alveron, is cross the line. You dare bring my late mother into your argument just to convey your assinine opinion about whether your son should or should not stay in a guild he loves. Preventing him from ever amounting to anything just because of your close-minded views on how a warrior should behave. Well guess what, Aven is not in the military, he's a guild mage, and we run things differently. We're a family that actually protects each other and pushes each other to surpass our limits. You would rather Aven avoid them, for what, cause you're scared. You think he's going to bring shame to your family. I think the only thing that would do that is shutting him indoors and withholding the world from all the good he would be capable of achieving. I guess that maybe the real issue Drani is that Aven has a pure soul, and that scares you because you cannot manipulate him into being your pathetic idealisation of the perfect wizard. When the truth is it doesn't exist, not even you Drani. I'm sure if you look far enough into your past to regret a decision you've made on the field. But if you can't even manage that, then I feel sorry for you. Because if you never realise your wrongs, then you'll never learn how to correct them."

    Then as quickly as the magical intensity had appeared, it's vanished just in the blink of an eye. Disappearing back inside Nessa like a vacuum, without even breaking a sweat. She had managed to control the magic that almost appeared to be growing out of control. Usually, she would have lost control of it, potentially even allowed the dark energy to take over her mind. Had the demonic power taken over, she most likely would have attempted to kill Drani there on the spot, that was just its nature. But today was different, her feelings for her mother had seemed to give her enough conviction to maintain control, driving back the demons ability to take over her mind.

    "It's funny, my Mother did so much for this world that goes unnoticed, the good she achieved in her lifetime has left an irreversible mark on Fiore. Only the narrow-minded who only  know their idea of the truth based on rumours would be unable to see that. Don't get me wrong, my mother wasn't perfect, and parts of her ideology were flawed. But let me assure you, Mrs Alveron, out of Aven and I, I'm not the one with the disappointing mother."

    Drani knew in an instant that she'd crossed a boundary not meant to be crossed. Nessa began a tirade, tearing her assumptions and observations apart like wet paper. At first, however, she remained indignant. Family obligations weren't enough to override the guild's rules? How silly, she didn't need to break a single stricture, only order Aven home as the head of the Household. The girl was making presumptions, as though Drani were intending to force Fairy Tail's hand: it was obvious she knew nothing of a noble's call to honor, their duty to the family name. She found it tiresome, if nothing else.

    The following rebuttal, however, was not so easily undressed. It was true, the barrage, if not dismissed as it had been, could have caused a catastrophe in the recent Alliance: all of which, Aven, and in turn the Alverons, would have been directly responsible for causing. Such an event... it would have surely Fiore asunder, and with one of the army's generals directly involved in the war's genesis, Fiore's forces would have been without a crucial component, as she'd have likely been barred from participation at best, locked up at worst. Had Aven's considerations truly been that far reaching? Drani's cold, calculating exterior fractured slightly, her mind beginning to race, recalling the entirety of the duel under the lenses of a guild mage. Aven hadn't summoned all those Circles out of hubris or ignorance, it was so clear to her: her son had, indeed, known full well that he could have quickly ended the fight with a few bursts of a full powered Seeker Circle,but his intention, from the start, hadn't been to simply win the duel. Aven's intention had been to make the fight look close and dramatic, to not only make both the Fairy Tail and Silver Wolf guilds look powerful, but to also strengthen the bond between them in friendship. Even if he'd lost in the end, he'd been after a complete, and total victory, not only for himself, but for his Guild and their allies as well.

    Drani was beginning to reel. She'd kept such a close eye on Aven since he'd visited last, even dispatching one of her own informants to keep tabs and report back to her. She'd read over every briefing with harsh scrutiny, sent a scout to tail him on his missions, but despite all that, he'd grown up so much without her notice. The onslaught didn't stop, of course, as Nessa continued on to a deeper set fear, and in a few paragraphs, tore into Drani's psyche. She was no longer in control of the verbal battle, but her defenses couldn't stand against such a barrage. 'Instead, you would rather shut him behind closed doors...' Her mind was drawn to a vision that had haunted her nights, consumed her thoughts for a long time: it was a memory she'd drawn from Aven, the first time he'd visited home in four years, bringing Nessa along with him. A drawback of Drani's Memory Magic lie in it's strength: she was able to experience and remember memories as though they were her own. Her shock, of course, wasoverwhelming, when she'd found a memory of the brutal physical and psychological torture of her child at the hands of a Dark Mage, feeling the pain and terror as he did. It had taken everything she had to get throughout that first night, to allow him to leave the next day, without locking him behind the doors of their mansion, never to leave care again.

    Just the mere thought formed a knot in her throat, as the carefully crafted demeanor of a hardened General broke apart, leaving behind only the weakened soul of a mother. Her icy blue eyes seemed to melt, as tears formed at the edges, wilting under the suddenly enormous magical pressure of the Wizard Saint before her. The words cut deeper than any knife, and no magic could stop the bleeding. As Nessa's rage induced tirade ended, there was nothing left of the hardened exterior Drani held so close. Her voice croaked out, a pathetic sound. "You say I'm scared, Lux? Well, you're right, I'm terrified: my son is out in this chaotic world of magic and monsters, with scars that bore deeper than skin. You think I would allow him into the military, you accuse me of manipulating him to become the perfect soldier. You couldn't be more wrong!" Tears feel freely down her cheeks, as feelings she'd repressed came rushing forth. "I've seen hell, Nessa Lux, and here you are, asking me to allow my baby into a battlefield of monsters worse than the devil himself?! He's no different than his big brother, but I won't lose Aven like I lost Zane; I refuse!"

    Her words became a soft sob, her knees weak and frail for the first time in fifteen years. Nessa was more than right, more than she knew. Drani was a failure of a Mother, a fact the woman faced every morning, when the family picture on her nightstand had only three Alverons instead of four. She hadn't been able to save Zane back then, and she knew, deep down, that she wouldn't be able to save Aven when's the time came, either. She met Nessa's eyes, sorrow pouring down her cheeks. "You're right, I'm a failure as a mother: but all I can do is keep him close to protect him from the world. Who will protect my baby if he's beyond my reach?"

    As Nessa's tirade came to an end, she watched as the woman she knew a fierce, intense and somewhat hardened in nature. Crumbled before her. The women who when she had first met her, had given off the impression of someone who seemingly couldn't be broken, the walking definition of a stone-faced general, was now crying before her. Nessa's eyes softened, she gulped slightly. Growing immediately uncomfortable. The difficulty was, Mrs Alveron had crossed a line she did not tolerate, using her mother's past like that to dig at her. Had been nothing less than cruel and unnecessary. But the sight of her unravelling in front of her like this was pulling at Nessa's weak spot. Nessa was not good at dealing with tears.

    Mrs Alveron went on to explain the truth behind her behaviour. Showing her true colours finally. She was nothing more than a mother terrified of losing her son, playing the role of an over-protective mother bear. Falling to her knees in front of the Starlight Maiden, a sobbing wreck. Nessa's stared silently, hearing a name she was unfamiliar with. Zane. Aven had a brother, a brother Nessa knew nothing about. Nessa kneeled down in front of  Drani; it was easy to see. This was the shell of a woman who had lost their child to the horror of the real world. Nessa could see it now, Crystal clear. This was a mourning parent desperately trying to protect what they had left.

    "I'm sorry." She began, her tone much gentler than it had been. "I won't lie to you and say this world is fair because it is not. It will easily pick off someone you love with all your heart and steal them from you in the blink of an eye. But you know..." Her words were soft, she had not forgiven Drani, but at the least, she could empathise with her pain. "If we were to allow ourselves to crumble and hide away from the world, then what would be the point of living at all? Do you think the ones we've lost would want that? You see my mother didn't die out on the job or on a battlefield. But years after leaving the field. Outside her own home, she had tried to escape the darkness of the world. Instead, it followed her to somewhere she thought was safe. Where she thought we were safe. She died because darkness found a place she thought she could escape from it, and she would do anything to protect her family. To protect me." A single tear would fall down Nessa's cheek as she remembered the sounds she heard that night when she refused to look out of the window. The explosions and screams that endlessly rippled through the air as she clung onto her small cousin. "Honestly I don't think you can run away from the cruelty of the world, because if you do then that's when it strikes. It'll just be when you least expect it. At least, if we're out there on the field, protecting each other and growing stronger. Then we actually stand a chance; Aven will actually stand a chance."

    She sighed, slowly climbing to her feet, offering a helping hand to Drani, "There are a lot of things we cannot control in this world and no matter what eventually our time here will come to an end. But at the very least, you are not alone. Aven is not alone. Because he has Fairy Tail fighting alongside him, we have each other's backs and look out for each other. Surely you must understand, think of the comrades you fought alongside on the battlefield, the warrior whose backs you watch and in turn watched yours. Well for Aven, this is Fairy Tail. To us, he is family, and we will die before we allow him to suffer any more of the world's cruelty."

    Drani cradled her face in her hands as the pain she'd born alone for so long poured from her. It hurt, not only to face the demons that has wracked her dreams and plagued her waking thoughts, but also to exhibit such overwhelming weakness. It was pitiful, she knew, but that didn't stop the tears. The bitterness of her anguish singed her cheeks, her eyes red with the strain. There was no saving face at this point, a fact she couldn't avoid, only embrace.

    Nessa began to speak once more, the venom that had brought Drani to her knees having vanished without a trace. Words of encouragement, a steady stream of hope flowed through the air as the Wizard Saint laid bare a path forward. Aven would have a chance... No matter how much Drani longed to protect Aven from the evils of the world, it was impossible to shield him from all of it. She'd tried, given it everything she had, but even then, it had only held him back. Drani shook her head, thinking of all the mistakes she'd made, all those that could not be undone even with all the magic in the world. Without her notice, her little boy had become a man, and entered the proving grounds, lacking what should have been his strength.

    It was finally time that Aven remembered.

    Drani dried her tears, regaining a small fraction of composure. That was right, Aven was a man now, and it would do him no good to be held under her wing any longer. It may be painful at first, but ultimately, remembering the past would allow him to move forward, and become the wizard he was meant to be. If that strength could keep him safe, Drani was willing to bear any resentment from Aven for what she'd done. After taking Nessa's hand, and rising to her feet, she spoke once more. "It seems Fairy Tail wizards are birds of a feather, you all have that stubborn compassion for others. I'm sorry for everything I said, if that means anything, I hope you can forgive me some day. You seem to care a lot for my son; he's lucky to have such a friend." Drani gingerly into her military jacket, Drani revealed a small silver amulet, with an strange, teal magical gem set in the center. As though she were cradling a baby, she proffered it to Nessa. Her voice quivered slightly from the strain. "If Fairy Tail is going to be his protection from now on, as you say, Aven is going to need this. It's..." She seemed to swallow a knot in her throat, "... It's a memory stone, one I've held onto for fourteen years now. Next time you see Aven, please give him this for me. I sencerely hope that Fairy Tail will be a better family for him than I've been."

    As soon as Nessa took the amulet, Drani would begin to walk away, the last bit of her strength channeled into maintaining her composure. If Nessa focused on the amulet, she could feel Aven's aura emanating from the gem, as though it were a part of him.

    ****

    High above, on the roof of a nearby building, a wizard watched the exchange with a thin expression. There it was, passed from one hand to the other: the object of his mission. The figure could feel the tingling in his spine, a telltale sign that he didn't have time to waste. Of course, Drani just had to give onto a Wizard Saint. Raising a hand to their mouth, the Wizard stroked their chin. Could they take on both Drani and Nessa Cordelia Lux simultaneously? Possibly, but not in any quick fashion, especially with that monster, Samira Nassar, still in the city. No, keeping a low profile was best, it was merely a matter of wit, and coincidentally, the wizard had that particular skill in spades. They adjusted their tie, and sauntered off the roof. Time to get to work...

    Nessa waited, not saying anything as she gave Drani the time to compose herself once again. Nessa had been in that position before, curled up, broken, having lost everything. Drani right now was the picture of herself only a few years ago; they weren't actually that far off from that park where Antoinette had discovered Nessa in the early hours of the morning, curled up in a fetal position, no longer wanting to continue living. It was by far the lowest point in her life, her rock bottom. She didn't know if she would have recovered had it not been for her family. But here she was, still alive, not only a member of Fairy Tail but an ace. Wizard Saint of Purity, a dream she had fantasised about as a child, only to have it now be true. She had grown stronger, despite the taint in her soul, she had persevered. She would hope, for both Drani and Aven's sake, that Drani could do the same.

    As Drani took her hand, Nessa would help pull Drani to her feet. Watching as the woman dried her tears and began to re-establish her composure. Nessa heard Drani's apology, but said nothing; she wasn't ready to forgive just yet. Her mother had been so precious to her, for someone to bring up her life in such a way. Was the equivalent of reopening a scar on her heart that had barely healed. It was too fresh, and therefore forgiveness was not in Nessa's bank right now. However she did appreciate that at the very least Drani knew she had done something wrong, it meant things weren't beyond hope for Aven's future in Fairy Tail. It seemed that Nessa had successfully changed Drani's mind on the matter, although she wished it had been a smoother process. The scene they had caused would undoubtedly cause rumours, rumours Nessa just really didn't need right now.

    Nessa's eyes dropped the amulet that Drani produced from inside of her jacket, it was set with silver, and in it, 's centre carried a teal gemstone. Nessa took it from her, holding it in her palm. Her violet eyes widened a fraction as she felt Aven's presence from within the stone, his aura almost seem to radiate around it. She glanced up at Drani, nodding at the woman. "I promise to give it to him as soon as I see him." She said earnestly. Drani turned away, without a goodbye she left Nessa standing there, amulet in hand. Nessa sighed, finally beginning to feel calm once more. She turned on her heel and began to make her way to the Guildhall where she originally intended.

    She wasn't sure whether she would see Aven again tonight, but one thing was sure, she would carry the amulet with her until she did. She didn't know what giving it to him would mean, only that it meant a great deal with his mother. Nessa wasn't about to break her promise; she would give him the amulet and stay with him for the consequence. Because despite everything his mother had said to her, and the strange tension she felt around him knowing his feelings for her. He was still her friend, and as a friend, she owed it to him to at least help in any way she could.
