“Attention all residents in Fiore. Attention all residents in Fiore. This is not a drill. The magic council have declared an emergency and advises all residents that do not feel safe to stay in their homes! They are enlisting help from the Rune Knights, and they are asking for any mage of Fiore to help!”
Elyssia bit her lower lip as she hears the cries of someone who seemed to be in a little panic themselves as they shout that out. Elyssia was one of the mages that has decided to take up arms and help as much as she can. She may not agree with the ways of the magic council, nor does she agree with the way guilds are really run, but this whole issue was not going to go down well for the other mages, and for anyone who doesn’t even use the power of magic.
She was only walking around in Capital Crocus when it happened. Everyone heard the voice come out of nowhere, she saw everyone panic, she saw them all scrambling to safety, soon leaving her… all alone… Luckily, a few Rune Knights were then spotted walking into the vicinity, so it seemed like if nobody else was arriving, it would be her and the Rune Knights to defend.
“I am guessing you’re a mage.” One of them asked her, to which she nodded and then looked to the side, crossing her arms.
“I am indeed. It looks like it’s just me though.” She sighed softly and then looked down before glancing over to her hands. “It is probably better that way though… I don’t work well with others.” She admitted.
The conversation stopped when the girl’s stomach started to rumble loudly, and she couldn’t help but cover it after that. One of the reasons she was out here in the first place was to get food, but she can’t now. She has to suffer from having no food, and impending doom! Fantastic!
“There may be more people coming, don’t let yourself down missy. I am sure they can accommodate you since… well… there's something more important at stake here.
What the guy said was true, and so Elyssia nodded before playing with one of her pigtails nervously. She did not want to be stuck with these Rune Knights on her own… bring on the people!
