    Job Details:

    Job Title: Can Mages Survive The Mall?
    Rank: A
    Player Requirements: 1 A Rank Mage or 2 B rank mages, max of 6 mages.
    This mission can be taken as noncombat since the only real "fightable" monster can be taken down with a good punch to the face and anyone can punch someone.
    Job Requirements: 18,000
    Job Location: Any Town.
    Job Description: For some reason you and maybe some friends decide that it is time for a shopping spree. Somehow one of you has heard that there is a wall being terrorized by a panty snatching wizard. This mall is holding a lively festivial which attracts many people. Thus giving you the chance to kill two birds with one stone, catch(or kill) the panty snatcher, and purchase any objects you may have come to need.
    Enemies: You do not have to complete every enemy but it's preferred you face most of them, the boss is required.
    Weak:
    1. You know how you sometimes can not find a parking spot when you go shopping? Well, today there is some festival running at the mall and thus there is no parking left. Best start the trek from blocks away to get to the mall.
    2. When you get into the mall and go to begin your shopping, suddenly you find that you may not have brought enough money. However, after hours of searching the mall has no ATMs so you have to get creative or budget better.
    3. Before you go shopping, you decide that you must get a bite to eat. Yet the mall is so crowded every single table in the food court is taken when you arrive! Well, now you're gonna have to eat standing up or wait.
    4. Once you start shopping you go into a store which provides cart's, but it turns out no one in the store knows how to drive them, so you best run or watch your ass.
    5. You know those moments where someone or even yourself forgets to lock the fitting room door? Well, you're going to have lots of those.


    Normal:
    1. You know how someone accidentally touches your rump while passing you in a crowded place? Well, hopefully, you don't like your space and enjoy awkward moments.
    2. Considering the festival going on at the mall, every single store is packed full making them crowded, stuffy and uncomfortable.
    3. Shopping is very hard when you can not clearly see the items you are trying to purchase, the store you have chosen seems to be very poorly lighted making shopping very difficult.
    4. You have found the most wonderful piece of clothing, problem is that it doesn't come in your size, so oops better know a seamstress.

    Strong:
    1. Have you ever tried thinking about making a logical decision with music blaring around you? Well, try deciding on what you want to buy with music deafening you, especially if you have to collaborate with someone.
    2. You know the exact things you want to buy, however, the salesperson is convinced you need hundreds of things that you don't want. let's hope you can get away or you'll likely be suckered into buying far more than you intended.
    3. Rather is be at check out or throughout the store, some idiot is yelling at someone who may or may not be an employee because they aren't getting their way. What a nuisance.
    4. Finally, check out has arrived, but the line is so long that you can even sit down for several minutes at a time while waiting for it to move.


    Boss: Panty Wizard
    Boasting the power of an "H-Rank" mage, this wizard has been terrorizing female patrons to the mall for weeks! When he shows up it is to teleport all the panties of any nearby females to his location, and he is not above poofing other people's clothing to prevent them from pursuing him as he runs off with the undies. However, it turns out he is actually beneath a D rank and goes down with a good swift kick in the ass, assuming you can fight the embarrassment of likely being nude or in your undergarments to do so.
    Reward: 45,000 Jewels.

    -Capital Crocus, the shopping mall-

    Victoria walked through the automatic glass doors and felt the cold air of air conditioning slap her squarely in the face. She had just entered a consumer's mecca. There were three floors of wall-to-wall shops and people were positively everywhere. There were electronics, sporting goods, clothing, cosmetics, music, jewelry... if someone wanted to buy it, they could find it here. At least that was what the mall barkers kept on saying.

    Dressed in a blue t-shirt with black skirt and white tennis shoes, Victoria had nothing with her. No collapsible baton, no new Azure Armor, no Bandolier, no backpack, no nothing. She did not want to incite panic by walking into the mall dressed for battle because that was a good way to bring the police down on her like the wrath of an angry deity. She left her backpack at home so it would be very hard to accuse her of shoplifting.

    Victoria found it strange to be standing in the middle of Capital Crocus' most upscale mall. She had never been here before today. Places like this had no use for street kids, especially poor and hungry street kids. Victoria was no longer a poor and hungry street kid. She was a mage of Sabertooth and she had Jewels to spend.

    Speaking of Sabertooth... where was Gaia? Gaia Sabin, a fellow Sabertooth member, was her partner on this expedition. Victoria decided to sit on a bench and wait for the other Sabertooth mage to show up before proceeding any further.

    Gaia takes a deep breath as she fixed up her short black hair to pin back a small braid she did on one of her bangs while she adjusts her top. Never had she been able to properly go to a mall with a girl friend... or any friend really. The most she had to go shopping with, were Olga and Leila, but they were more her helpers of fashion when she did competitions, ever since Fiore's Next Top Model at least. Today she was going to be going with a fellow guild member, Victoria Sheridan, to the mall. Part of her was hoping to make a girl friend to hang out with from time to time, but one can only wait and see how it goes.

    Dressed in a dark blue waist underbust skirt, a matching short shirt that covered over the top of the skirt with a white, skin tight, long sleeve shirt underneath that. On her hands were thumbless gloves that matched the dark blue of the skirt and shirt that covered the end of the white shirt's sleeve. Her legs had white leggings and knee high dark blue boots. It was one of the few things Olga sent her from time to time. She wasn't going anywhere without her bag on her hip, adjusting the straps as it carried her jewels and tarot deck in there. No way was she going to be without it. She left her blade staff at home, but with her cards, they'd spit it back out at her if she absolutely needed it.

    The tarot mage walked into the mall, looking around in awe through her blue rimmed square glasses, and gingerly pushed them up on her nose. A small smile was on her face as she walked slightly aimlessly through the front entrance, wondering what she could get here, or if she was going to get anything at all. Maybe she could get another outfit? Or would she be able to find a store with more tarot in it? She'd have to find out eventually as this was her first time coming to the mall as well. She spots the other mage sitting on a bench and skips over to her. Around her neck was the fuzzy companion she typically kept with her, and only hoped that no one would get upset about Noya being there. Gaia would have hated to leave her precious baby at home without her for hours on end. Gaia raises a hand and scratches Noya's head as she approached Victoria. "Hey! Victoria!" She says with a smile. This was a bit out of her element, going up to someone other than Kite, Ryo, or Kyran, but she felt she was doing good so far. "You have anything you need? I'll have to admit... I just wanted to come here with someone to see what it was like." She chuckles nervously, scratching her cheek with a finger. She glances to Victoria, then herself, and felt she was overdressed... but she typically was anymore without trying as she liked to doll herself up slightly.

    Victoria spotted Gaia from her attire and ever-present glasses. In contrast to Victoria's overly casual look, Gaia's look was nice and color-coordinated. It showed a lot of effort put into it and made the brunette feel kind of shabby. Maybe she needed to buy some new clothes while she was here. Maybe... she was never one for buying clothing except what she immediately needed.

    Victoria's rather small wardrobe of shirts, skirts, shorts, and the occasional hoodie jacket was still reasonably intact, so she just kept wearing what she had. Victoria had saved more than enough Jewels to buy new clothing, but why fix what was broken? She had enough for her immediate needs and needed to save Jewels for emergencies, so unless she spotted something she really, really had to have, she would just pass and save her money. Besides, with so many people in the mall, chances were high that all the good stuff had been picked over already. She would have to make do with the leftovers... if there were any to begin with.

    Victoria stood up and greeted Gaia Sabin, the Sabertooth mage who was also an Ace of the guild. Imai was the other Sabertooth Ace she had met... there could have been one more, but she was not sure since she was still fairly new to Sabertooth. Black Rose had seven Aces. Other guilds had an average of three Aces. Anyway, she greeted Gaia.

    "Hey Gaia, how's it going?" Victoria asked Gaia after hearing her reason for being at the mall. It was the same as the brunette's reason; Victoria too wanted to see what Capital Crocus' mall had to offer. Since it was in the capitol city, it was sure to have a wider selection of goods than any other mall in Fiore.

    "Yeah, me too. I've never been here before and I wanted to see what was on sale. But I don't even know where to begin." Victoria admitted to the guild Ace. She was kind of hoping that Gaia had visited before, but the bespectacled mage had not visited before either. That meant that the mall adventure would be a case of the blind leading the blind. Things were going to get interesting.

    As she was greeted, Gaia grins to the other mage rather widely. "It's going good, I just need a break for once after all the jobs I've been dealing with... I'm hoping that this will be a rather relaxing experience, or an exciting one at least." She scratches the back of her head with a deep breath. As the other mage mentioned wanting to see what was on sale here, she taps her chin and looks around a bit. "Maybe we can just wander a bit... It's my day off, so I have all day. What was your magic again, though? Maybe we can see about a store that specializes in something similar? I use tarot cards to at least summon right now. I could probably also see about getting Noya her own special bed to use... or like a cat tree type thing for her to..." She trails off as she glances over to the side of them. The mage had noticed a little advertisement board type thing. This one was different than the others. It seemed to have three drawings on it that were similar to one another. She then gasps, when she realizes what it was, before she grabs Victoria's wrist and dragged her over to the board, if she let her drag her that is. "There's a map of the mall! We can use this to help us quicker!" She says rather excitedly as she let her eyes quickly skim over the layout. As she ran her eyes over a little section on the first floor, she takes a deep breath. She just looked over to the food court, and as she did so, her stomach growled.

    Gaia looks to Victoria nervously, and pointed to the food court. "You wouldn't happen to be hungry, would you? I realized I didn't have lunch before I came here, so now I am a tick hungry..." She admits to the other mage. She said she glanced to the food places listed in the legend to try and guess the types of food they served there. She then let her eyes glance over the map more, and taps her chin. There was a particular name of a store there that had caught her attention, making her rather curious about it. "Huh... Shoppe of the Various Arts... I wonder if there's any information on it on the iLac...?" She murmurs. The tarot mage pulls out her iLac and starts to search the web for the shop, but pouts as she wasn't able to find anything about it. "I think I'd like to check that store out... if we don't get food immediately. I'm okay with grabbing food from a stall and munching on it too." She couldn't help but mutter, more to herself than to Victoria, but she said it loud enough that Victoria should hear her at least.

    Noya perks her head up as she looked to the map, then quickly flicked her head around to see what was behind them. There was a loud group hollering to one another as they were goofing off around the mall. They were young teenagers being loud and rowdy, like typical teens did when they went to the mall. Noya glared at them though, feeling something was off about maybe one of them, but slowly lowered her head back down onto Gaia's shoulder. She didn't want to worry her mage on her day off. Noya's black eyes look up at Gaia before they look over to Victoria. If they did go to get food, she hoped they went somewhere that served some raw meats... just so she could snag some. Gaia wouldn't let her if one did though, as she had a small baggy of meats for Noya to munch on instead, and Noya could smell it too.

    Victoria knew what needing a break felt like. It took her awhile to get over fighting Zupazu in the recently discovered tunnel networks underneath Hargeon Town. It took five days for her to get over the various lumps and cuts she took from fighting Zupazu and his guardians. Thankfully she did not suffer permanent scarring from any of her wounds, but they hurt all the way to Hargeon Hospital, where she spent three days being treated for the cuts and burns.

    "I don't mind wandering. It's not like I have anything urgent to do today. I'm just glad that for once I'm not in the danger zone. A few days ago I had a job in Hargeon Town nearly go bad, so I'm not keen on going into harm's way today." Victoria said to Gaia. As much as the brunette liked Jewels and she liked fighting, sometimes one had to know when to step away from it for awhile. The encounter with Zupazu was something of a wake-up call for her because she had been throwing herself into fight after fight with barely a pause in between ever since she had escaped from the Corlone mansion in Rose Garden. While it helped the people of Earthland and her bank account, such behavior did not do many favors for her body. The recovery from the fight with The Infernal Lord was the longest stint she had been inactive since escaping from Francesca Corlone.

    When Gaia mentioned dropping by the food court, Victoria was all in favor of it... it was best to get food while there was still some available. Whenever malls got crowded on major sales days like this one, food supplies tended to run out distressingly fast. The mages had better visit now before the food court got too crowded to get into in any reasonable length of time. Bad memories of the Steel Matron tribute band concert came flashing back.

    "Yeah, let's go to the food court first. It's getting kinda crowded, so we'd better hurry." Victoria said to her guildmate. Going to the various stores could wait awhile. They would still be there and would be open longer because of so-called "extended hours" which were really only a one-hour increase at most. Still, it was better than nothing. Speaking of stores, Victoria's curiosity was sparked when she heard Gaia mention something called an iLac.

    "What's an iLac?" Victoria blurted out to Gaia. She had heard about them, but only in passing from overheard casual conversations that she really should not be paying too much attention to. From what she understood, they were high-tech communications devices and social media platforms that used "apps" to help facilitate communication between people across distances big or small. Victoria had never really had an opportunity to interact with technology very much because growing up in the poor part of town did not give very many chances to work with it. Being in a guild and traveling had expanded her horizons quite a bit, but there was still much about the world that the brunette did not understand.

    "I'm glad you're alright despite the job nearly going bad! I wouldn't want to get into harms way myself if I were to get into situations going bad like that as well." The tarot mage smiled wider as the other had said she didn't mind wandering around the area. She runs her hand over her hair before she had went to the map. At the mention of the mall getting crowded, Gaia nods a little. Her cheeks were a bit flush as she didn't know if she would be able to handle all the people or not. She never had been to a festival, so she didn't expect the amount of people here at all. She quickly looked at the map and traced her finger over for the directions to the food court, and grins to herself as she figured out the way to go as quickly as possible, as long as there weren't too many people in the way at least.

    At the question of what an iLac was, Gaia blinked a little. She held hers up for Victoria to take and look at briefly. "It's a communication device powered by a lacrima." She muses. Hers was a nice soft pink iLac that had the lock screen of her and Kyran and Noya posed for a picture. Her dressed up like a doll like usual, but was laughing happily in the moment, and Noya trying to get in the very center of the picture. "As far as I know, you can only get these in the Neutral Grounds from the factory." She shows her a little bit of how it works as they walked, glancing up every so often to make sure she wasn't bumping into people. It was slowly getting more and more crowded as they got closer to the food court. She stops showing her phone and held her bag in front of her as they got to the food court, and she lets up a soft whine. It was super crowded here. Every table was filled with people hanging off while they laughed and ate with one another there, and the lines were rather long too. She slumps her shoulders as she hears her stomach growl again, putting a hand on her stomach to try and quiet down the whale sounds emanating from there.

    The smell of the food from the food court wasn't helping her hunger, and the tarot mage whines softly as she couldn't back out from food now...It was practically a must. "I'm sorry for dragging you here... If I had known it'd be this crowded I wouldn't of -eek!" She let out a squeal as a large group passing them by really close had someone reaching out and grabbing her butt without her noticing till just as it happened. Her cheeks flushed as she glares in the direction she felt the groper had gone, instantly feeling insecure standing basically 'out in the open' in this crowded area. She looks to Victoria, and takes a deep breath. "If you wish, you can find us a table and I can order us some food? I plan to get a slice of pizza at that pizza stall over there." She points to one of the food places that was close to them, and smiles softly. Of course she was trying to get the random grope out of her head and focus on having a good time. She also planned to tell Victoria there was another reasoning for her being there... something she seen on her iLac in the news. She didn't show her sooner because she didn't want to be walking and accidentally delete it or lose the page. "Anything you want for me to grab for you? I don't mind going to any of the food places if you want something different." She nods to the other while Noya seems to nod along with her, making Gaia snort softly to the creature.

    "Going bad was an understatement. I'll have to tell you about it in private sometime, preferably back at the guild hall. But let's just say that it was a close call." Victoria said to her guildmate. She was lucky that some cosmic force saw fit to grant her the power to control shadows within 50 meters of her and make them do her bidding. If she had not had that power, the story would have likely had a very different ending for her. Zupazu's boasts of power and showing her the frailty of her flesh were not just empty talk. His claws really did hurt and she was surprised that the scarring on her face and stomach was not permanent.

    Victoria took a glance at Gaia's soft pink iLac and was fascinated by its compact design and functions. She was told that iLacs could only be obtained directly from the iLac factory in the Neutral Grounds, whatever that place was. It sounded like something that would be good to have, but there were equally powerful drawbacks to having one of the devices.

    First, Victoria was not sure how durable they were. She tended to go into harm's way frequently, so she needed something that could stand up to falls, drops, partial and/or total immersion in liquid, and other job conditions that were part of her job. She would need a special model that was made for durability... she wondered if the factory made only a "standard" iLac or if they made custom models for those with the wherewithal to pay for it.

    Second, Victoria was worried about sensitive information falling into the wrong hands. Since many people lived on their iLacs, sensitive information naturally accumulated on them. Victoria did not want to become one of those statistics. The best way to prevent that from happening was to not have an iLac to even start with.

    Third, Victoria was worried about others being able to listen in on conversations with other people. Since they were made and marketed for non-mages, they likely did not have any sort of encryption or other protection for signals. That was another reason the brunette was not eager to race out of the mall and go to the Neutral Grounds just to get one.

    She was brought back to the present by Gaia requesting that she find a table for the two of them to sit at.

    "Sure. Lemme see if I can find one." Victoria said before splitting off from her colleague. As she went to look for a table, she felt someone grab the back of her skirt and flip it up to momentarily expose her black underwear to the world. A mortified Victoria shrieked and looked in vain for the culprit, who had blended into the crowd and was long gone.

    "I thought that chick was a guy in drag." A brown-haired teenage male wearing a black Untamed Mustang band t-shirt with the band's name spelled in brown letters and blue jeans commented to a male friend. The remark was obviously a jab at Victoria's boyish figure. The brunette ignored it and tried one last time to find the culprit.

    "Me too, bro. She's kinda flat-chested, so I thought she was one of those guys who likes to dress as a girl. At least she has a nice ass." The black-haired friend commented. He wore a black White Holiday band t-shirt with the band's name spelled in white letters and black jeans. The two laughed and high-fived one another. Victoria blushed again as she walked away from the guys before something regrettable happened.

    Victoria lucked out and found an empty square table for two on the edge of the food count. She sat down and tried to forget her embarrassment and focus on the mall trip. Maybe there was a store that she might actually want to go into.

    Notes \\ (828) 2638 /7000 Words \\ Tag @Victoria Sheridan

    As she was told that she would have to be told in private about what happened on the job, Gaia nods, figuring that would be a good thing, especially out in the open. If the other mage were to have any questions about her iLac, she'd try her best to answer them as well as she could, or have her iLac find the answer. In the food court, after she asked for Victoria to find a table, Gaia smiles softly and hopes the girl can find one... It seemed like it was going to be rather hard to do with all the people. She had turned to go to to the food stall she had been wanting to go to. She turns her head as she spies Victoria after hearing a shriek in that direction, and wonders who did it. Maybe she should pay more attention around her for her partners and her own safety.

    She got into line and nervously played with her skirt as she was hoping no one else would touch her while she stood there, trying to stay away from people as much as possible while standing in line. That was easier said than done at the moment since there was a festival and sales going on right now. She just hoped less mishaps would happen as the day progressed... minus the thing she came here for. The line was slow moving, and Gaia had lost sight of Victoria in the food court, but as soon as she was close to the counter, she barely spotted the girl at a table. Thank the heavens! She was able to get them one. She hoped Victoria didn't have to wait too long to get that table or anything. She hadn't said if she wanted anything, so she had gotten Victoria a smaller slice of pizza and a soda to go with it in case she wanted something. If not, she could always eat it herself. Ordering was a tad hard as it was loud in the food court, but Gaia managed to get the order in and soon had her two slices of pizza and two cups of sodas on her tray. She carefully turned around and bit her bottom lip while maneuvering around the crowds of people to the table she spotted Victoria was at. It was far away from where the food stalls were, or at least the pizza one, so she had to maneuver around more people than she was wanting to.

    Eventually, she made it to the table and takes a deep breath. "I really picked the best time to come here..." She grumbles to herself as she shakes her head a bit. She smiles nervously to Victoria, and grabs the second plate. "Would you want a slice?" She asks her curiously, placing the styrofoam cup in the middle of the table for the other mage to take from her. She takes her slice and begins to eat it, refusing to give a piece of it to Noya, no matter how much the ferret seemed to beg her. "This food isn't for you Noy... You'll get sick if you eat it. Raw meats for you, not cooked." She tells the fluffy white creature with a soft glare. As she ate, she reached into her bag and pulled out her iLac, nearly dropping it into her own soda as someone bumped into her from behind. "Glad this thing is decent... But I have to admit this is a slight job... But more I want to investigate it." She says as she flicks her thumb over the screen rather rapidly. As soon as she got to the thing she wanted, she quickly turned it around and placed her pizza on the plate again.

    "I found this article about a 'panty snatching wizard' that's been roaming here for the past few weeks... Of course their main targets is females for their panties..." She says as she takes a deep breath. "Would you mind also helping me find out about this person? I know it seems rather cruel that it's us going to find out about them... but at least it does give us an advantage to be able to find out who it is at the same time." She points out. "I mean, if you want to help me, that is. I completely understand if you feel like this would be a waste of time to see if we come by them by chance while roaming, so it's alright if you feel like this isn't a job for you to help with!" She lightly ducked her head under her shoulders a bit. This wasn't how Gaia normally acted... She had a bit more class about her, but this was something that dealt with private clothing matters... so it was a good deal embarrassing to her. She honestly felt that she wouldn't be offended if Victoria backed out because of how personal it could be too.

    "Yeah, I'd like some pizza too. Thanks." Victoria answered Gaia's question so quickly that it almost seemed like the former was being rude. What could she say? The brunette liked pizza because while it could be a bit messy, on the whole it was a good food to eat because it was so tasty that an entire meal could be made out of it without requiring side dishes. It was about as nutritious as eating toxic waste straight from Morgate Town, but Victoria did not expect to live long enough to experience the downsides of a poorly balanced diet, so she really did not care about nutritional completeness. The brunette lived in the moment and this moment was about eating pizza.

    Victoria listened as Gaia apologized for the "slight" nature of a job while using her iLac and browsing at something on it. The brunette was more than a little curious. What did Gaia mean about a "slight" job?

    "What do you mean?" Victoria asked moments before Gaia offered an explanation as to what she meant. There was a "Panty Snatching Wizard" who had been terrorizing the mall for the past few weeks and going after female shoppers for obvious reasons. Victoria was mildly shocked by the nature of the job but it was not exactly a world-shaking revelation... there was a lot of weird stuff going on in the world and most of the time a wizard was responsible for it. She only wondered why the wizard ran around stealing women's underwear instead of using his magic to rig the lottery and get a big enough payday to just buy them if he really wanted to. Maybe it was the thrill of the hunt or something like that.

    "Oh. A panty snatching wizard, huh?" Victoria asked, casually sipping on her soft drink while listening to the Ace muse about taking the job and discovering the identity of the mage. She recalled the earlier unpleasant incident at the food court involving the person who flipped up the back of her skirt and wondered if the incident was a trial run by the wizard to see what a potential victim was wearing. Maybe. She let Gaia continue to talk about the possibility of taking the job and heard her say that refusal to participate would not be held against Victoria due to the personal nature of the job.

    "A panty snatching wizard, huh?" Victoria calmly repeated. She thought about it for a moment. It WAS a small job, but it was interesting in a "train wreck" kind of way. Completing it would also result in good publicity for Sabertooth as a defender of the common man from the depredations of both supernatural threats and everyday menaces.

    "Eh, why not? I'm game to look for this thief if you are. It beats window shopping all day." Victoria opined. The brunette was down for taking the job, but she wondered if Gaia was up to it. It was important for both of them to be on board with taking the job before they set out on their quest to stop a panty thief.

    "Are you up for it, Gaia?" Victoria asked plainly. There was no point in sugarcoating it for an Ace. There was no "the world is doomed if we fail" kind of risk involved, but things could get... weird. She wanted to make sure Gaia was up for it before continuing.

    The tarot mage smiles as she felt she made the right decision getting Victoria a slice of pizza. "Welcome! Surprisingly the line went fast! So I could go and get more for us later." She says and nibbles on her pizza happily. As she had gone on about showing Victoria her iLac and the article about it, she let the girl hold it if she wished. When she repeated her question, calmly, she slowly lowered her hand. "They say he's rather strong... so I would suggest to be careful with him..." She murmurs a bit. When her fellow mage said she was in, Gaia's face lit up. "Oh thank the heavens... I didn't want to go about it all alone... Yes, I am up for it as well!" She admits and holds her hands together. "I'll see about paying you back later as well for helping me with it! And I was kinda thinking we do do a little window shopping to make it more believable if he does come today..." She picks up her pizza again, and takes a deep breath.

    She was quiet for a moment, before she glanced up to the other girl sitting near her. She lightly brushes her bangs behind her ear, and pushed up her glasses at the bridge. "So... you don't have anyone you like, do you?" She asks curiously. She wanted to make some small talk while they were sitting there eating, and wanted to get to know her guild member a bit more. A small smile was on her face as she found at least asking that simple question was a decent step for her talking to new people and trying to actually make friends rather than just know them. In fact... she wasn't aware of this mage's magic too? She puts her pizza down again after she swallowed another bite. "What... magic do you have? I'm just curious. I guess it's kind of sad of me, being an Ace of Sabertooth and not knowing the members too well... or what they can and can't do, besides the other Aces and our Guild Masters..." She hangs her head a bit. She was a terrible Ace she felt in that regard. Looking over her shoulder, she blinked a little at a store in the mall being advertised on a lacrima TV in the food court. It was one of the fashion stores, 'Olga's Fine Boutique', and she taps her chin a bit. "That looks like it could be nice to go to as well... Might be Olga's... she'd kill me if she found out I came here and didn't go to her store..." She chuckles to herself. Her short fashion designer was a spitfire when she could be, and Gaia felt that that would have been one of those moments. She then looks over to Victoria and bites her bottom lip. "If there's any store you want to go into while we're here, please, tell me! Don't let me take over the whole trip till we find anything on the snatcher!" She laughs softly.

    Noya let up a squeak as she scurries onto the table, looking through the crowd as a few other females seemed to give off disgruntled expressions while holding at the back of their skirts or pants, or holding a purse over their rumps. They looked like they had been groped as well, and obviously weren't happy about it with the crowds. Gaia takes a deep breath. Either there were a lot of mischievous people about today... or maybe that panty snatcher was here. She'd find out soon enough. Gaia continues to eat her pizza and sipping on her soda, enjoying both rather a lot. "Mmm... Now I kinda wish I had some pasta with wine..." She couldn't help but muse aloud. Those were her favorite together, especially if they were matched well together. Noya squeaked again, and the tarot reader looked down to her. She was trying to get the last bite of Gaia's pizza, but instead of giving it to her, Gaia just popped it in her mouth and reached into her purse. "Please don't give Noya any, no matter how big her eyes get on you." She says as she was searching through her purse. Of course, as she said that, Noya had gone up to Victoria and was showing her big eyes to her, wanting to beg for a bite of her pizza. Gaia had pulled out one of the baggies of raw meats that Kyran tended to bring for Noya when they go out, and smirks as that really got the attention of the pet. Gaia breaks off a small piece, and hands it to the ferret who nibbles on it happily.

    "Yeah, you don't want to go up against creeps like that all alone if you can help it. Most of them aren't strong by themselves, but they tend to bring weapons or friends with them. This will be one of the few times I've faced someone with a teammate at my side." Victoria said to Gaia. The brunette usually took solo jobs because it suited her nature as a loner. It also made sure that she was the only one who got hurt if she did something stupid, an act not without precedents over her career. Thankfully she tended to pick job partners with a level head who countered her recklessness and made her rein it in. Sassi Luminosa and Seth Augusta were two such individuals who had been helpful job partners... Gaia Sabin might be a third.

    "I don't mind window shopping if it helps the cover story. I might even find something I actually want. I'm interested in finding figurines of the last generation of Wizard Saints, particularly Astrid Foss. But I don't want any cheap plastic tchotchkes... I want figurines with some substance to them." Victoria outlined to Gaia what she wanted out of today's shopping trip. She was hoping to find an Izayuki figurine, but she doubted that one could be found because the Wizard Saint tended to keep a low profile in comparison to Astrid and the others. Maybe there was a decent Samira Nassar figurine that she could get in addition to one of Astrid Foss. When the subject of romance came up, the brunette was quick to answer.

    "I really don't have anyone special, Gaia. It's kinda hard to get a guy when you have a small chest and look like a boy." Victoria admitted to the Ace. The earlier skirt-flipping incident brought that unpleasant subject to the front of Victoria's mind and kept it there. She did not care about it too much, but every once in awhile that particular body issue got to her. Gaia had no such problems and probably pulled in plenty of guys with her looks, but she might have to deal with the issue of whether she pulled in the right guys. That was something that Victoria did not have to worry about right now... or possibly ever.

    When the bespectacled Ace asked what magic Victoria had, the brunette seized on the chance to change the subject. However, a new challenge related to the magic popped up. She could not come out and say that she was a walking arsenal without frightening all the non-mages around them and drawing scrutiny from mall security. Victoria opted to lean in and whisper her answer.

    "I use Merces Letifer magic, a magic my adopted father taught me so that I could defend myself. It lets me summon magic guns and grenades of several different types. I don't need to carry weapons with this magic." Victoria whispered into Gaia's ear. She stepped away once the explanation was finished so that people would not get too suspicious. A brief answer was fine, but a lengthy discussion could easily draw the wrong sort of attention, which could lead to conclusions being jumped to and a whole lot of headaches for everyone involved. The brunette did not want any headaches, not today. The only person who deserved them was the person going around and groping females... she noticed that more women were covering their backsides and looking flustered.

    Suddenly an advertisement for a figurine shop came onto the TV lacrima. The shop's name was called Resin Monuments and advertised figurines made out of high-quality resin that were hand-painted for just the right colors to suit the subject. On the screen flashed a figurine of Astrid Foss, the one-eyed Wizard Saint she had met on a few occasions but never really got to talk to for any length of time. Victoria recognized the long white hair, elaborate armor, and one red eye anywhere. She wanted that figurine now.

    "If you don't mind, I'd like to drop by Resin Monuments during our adventure. There's some figurines I want to check out. I'm hoping to get an Astrid Foss and Samira Nassar figurine, but I'm not gonna hold my breath. It's worth a shot." Victoria announced to Gaia as the Noya creature looked up at her. It obviously wanted her pizza. That was not happening.

    "Sorry little guy." Victoria said as she ate the last of her pizza. The furry creature almost looked depressed, but the brunette was not budging. There would be no pizza for Noya.

    GAIA SABIN
    The Cards Aren't Always Right
    Gaia takes a deep breath and nods as she was told about creeps bringing weapons and friends with them, hence why she hoped Victoria would come with her on this. "I hope we can go on more jobs together. Don't be afraid to reach out to me to do a job or two with you too! I'm stronger than I look, I promise." She muses softly. She was also a bit glad the other girl was also up for window shopping with her. "Ah! I haven't seen one of the figurines before. Maybe I could see about them too... but I don't know much about the Saints..." She takes a deep breath as she smiles softly. She kinda hoped she could become one one day, but she didn't have high hopes for it as she never felt she was strong enough for that title, even though she somehow got the Rising Star position without much knowledge of how she did so.

    As she was told about Victoria's lack of ability to get a guy, Gaia let her hands smack down on the table as she looked at her seriously. Yeah, she personally didn't have that issue with her own chest, but she knew better. "Okay. The body isn't what's important when it comes to finding someone. I didn't use to dress like this originally, not until I went to a modeling competition. When I met my boyfriend, Kyran, I was literally dressed like a prude. No skin on my body was shown except for my face and fingers really." She held up one of her hands as she takes a deep breath. "The only guys who came up to me and flirted with me, or more pretended, were guys who knew me in my family. Other than that, no one dared think to come up to me with how I dressed. Kyran came along and yeah... guess the rest. And if someone thinks you're a guy, over a girl, then they're just looking over the cover fast." She puffs her cheeks up and sits back a bit to cross her arms over her chest. She was rather passionate about things like this. After she realized what it felt like to be loved a bit after false loves and a period of loneliness, she wasn't going to let another try and feel like it was hopeless.

    When the other leaned forward after her question, Gaia leaned forward a little as well, not wanting her to lean forward too much to tell her. After hearing the magic, Gaia taps her chin and lightly nods. "That sounds rather interesting... Perfect for when in danger." She muses. "My cards are mainly elemental based, but they're similar with swords and staffs and the like, older weapons if you will." She didn't seem to mind too much about speaking of her magic aloud here, but figured Victoria would be a bit uncomfortable saying hers like that. It could cause others to be on alert and whatnot. More than hers at least. At the mention of stopping by Resin Monuments to check out some figurines, the black haired girl nods with a smile. "No issue! I didn't want to be taking over the whole trip anyways! Especially if I were to drag you into a shop you might not like yourself." She rubs the back of her head and nervously chuckles. She hoped she didn't drag Victoria into a shop she'd be uncomfortable with.

    Noya seemed rather upset as she was told sorry for not getting the pizza, and whined a bit. "I told you already, princess, you will get sick eating that." The tarot mage says as she gives the ferret a piece of meat, which she ate happily. When the trio was done eating their food, Gaia started roaming a bit with the other. "You happen to catch where the store is? So we can roam that way." She looks around the area for a map again, having recalled seeing the name in the legend, just not where it was on the map as she had only casually glanced it over. She looks over to Victoria just before she did managed to spy a map not too far from them again, and waited to see if the girl knew the general area for the store.

    If her partner didn't know where the store was, Gaia went over to the map and started to look for the area before they started going in that direction. Gaia was slowly walking around, trying to look over the other shoppers around her as they were a tad bit taller than her. "The only store I definitely have to go to, is Olga's Fine Boutique, it's a bit past Resin Monuments." She says. The crowd was starting to get a bit thicker again, and Gaia puts a hand on Noya's head, who was snuggling close to her masters neck.

    "I might start running more jobs with teammates. You're on the short list of teammates. Which is good because you're the first teammate I've had in awhile." Victoria said to Gaia. Aside from partnering with Ryo and Imai on the trip to retrieve the cattle for a wealthy client, Victoria had not worked with any other Sabertooth mages yet. That was fine because she was still the new guy and the other Sabertooth mages really did not know that much about her. She did not exactly volunteer information about herself to anyone other than Ryo and Gaia because she did not know the nature of Sabertooth's dealings with Black Rose.

    Victoria was also worried that Sabertooth might try to pump her for information on Black Rose's secrets, secrets that she was sworn to keep confidential since she was once an Ace of the defunct guild. Ryo had vowed not to, but she did not know if Sabertooth's Aces or rank-and-file members shared his scruples. She would deal with that problem if it came up, and even then she was not too worried about it. She had defied Francesca Corlone by not divulging secrets under torture and lived to tell about it. Victoria would keep Black Rose's secrets until the day she died, even if it meant leaving the safety of her new guild to keep them.

    "I'm not too worried about romance. It gets in the way and it's only something that can be turned against you. I've also never really thought about it that much because I've been so busy trying to make a living." Victoria started explaining to Gaia, who was unexpectedly passionate about that kind of thing. She did not want to offend the Guild Ace or alienate a potential partner, so a follow-up statement was in order. Gaia seemed to think a lot of the Kyran guy and had found a relationship that worked... despite her own stance on romance, Victoria wanted to encourage the Ace to stick with it.

    "It seems that you've found a good guy to be with, Gaia. If it works for you, I say go for it regardless of what other people think. You do what's best for you." Victoria opined to Gaia. The brunette was not sure if any guy really wanted a small-chested chick who was a certified tomboy. She also did not believe that a guy wanted a girl who could drink him under the table or outfight him in a back alley brawl. Victoria lived a rough and adventurous lifestyle and was far from ready to settle down and have children... any guy who dated her had best be prepared for that reality.

    "I end up in dangerous situations a lot, so my magic really works for me. I don't know whether it was a happy accident or if it was fate that I met the guy who taught it to me, but it's certainly helped me make a living. People sometimes need someone willing to go into danger zones and they're willing to pay good Jewels for it, so I take the opportunities and run with them." Victoria admitted to Gaia. The brunette did not just end up in dangerous situations; she often signed up for combat jobs because she like the hefty Jewel payments that came with them. Her newly learned Combat Medic magic was another magic that could not have been better suited to its user. It would help keep Victoria on her feet while in the field and far away from friendly healers. She would no doubt have plenty of opportunities to use it in the jobs that were to come.

    When Gaia said that she did not want to take up Victoria's shopping trip, the brunette was quick to comment.

    "I don't mind a shopping trip, Gaia. It beats something trying to kill me every five minutes. I forgot the last time I've been on a real shopping trip to a mall and not just dipping into a corner store for a quick look around." Victoria admitted. She had never really been interested in shopping because shopping cost money, money that Victoria often did not have to spare until she became a mage. Now that she had saved a decent chunk of money she was willing to take an occasional shopping trip.

    "I think Resin Monuments is on the third floor. You might wanna check before we go up there, Gaia." Victoria suggested to the Ace. Resin Monuments was the only store the brunette was really interested in visiting. She wanted Samira Nassar and Astrid Foss figurines first and foremost. Everything else was optional.

    GAIA SABIN
    The Cards Aren't Always Right
    Gaia grins to the other girl, as she shakes her head. "Please, try to work with other members, you'll find they're capable and rather fun to work with." She muses rather happily to her. "We're like a family, nearly. Having one another's backs and whatnot." She shrugs her shoulders but she didn't go any further as she watched her guild member. Honestly, she didn't care where the girl came from. The only thing that really truly mattered to the ace, was that she didn't intend to harm the guild and wished to do nothing but good, for both Fiore and the guild. Masha was the same way, trying to get better personally since she had been from a dark guild once upon a time. As she was told she wasn't worried about romance, Gaia smiles again and nods. "It can be both turned against you, and make you stronger. But it does depend on who you are and your perspective on it, and the situation. It can also be what holds you together sometimes. But at the same time, love in general doesn't have to be romantic. Could be friends, family, just simple sentimental things." She shrugs her shoulders as she sat there. A small smile was on her face as she was told she seemed like she found a good guy to be with. Her cheeks blushed deeply as she felt she had taken over the conversation a bit too much. "I-it's also not important to really get in one though. A relationship. Especially if you don't want one. Just sometimes it works out, or the world believes you should." She shrugs her shoulders a bit.

    Victoria telling the tarot mage that she ends up in dangerous situations a lot, made Gaia smirks softly. "I seem to get into pretty tight ones myself, especially with my boyfriend it seems..." She shrugs her shoulders slightly once again. "I am glad someone taught you your magic though. I would be grateful myself. I just hope you don't get yourself into too tight of situations that could easily be solved by having someone else with you to help out. Even if you think you can do it on your own, not always is it wisest." She says with a soft nod. That was something from a book she read before, but she felt it applied here a bit for the other mage.

    She gets up from the table slowly. "What I meant by take up your shopping trip, is I didn't want to bore you with dragging you about to places you wouldn't like at all. I know I hate being dragged around without being asked about going to certain places first sometimes..." She admits, shrugging her shoulders. She had to admit though, relaxing and shopping was much better than hectic stuff. "Well another job you could do without being killed every five minutes... would be working at a cosplay café, but it's usually filled with perverts and rude children... don't suggest doing it." She points a finger to her. The black haired mage looks at the map and runs her finger over the third floor trying to find the number for the Resin Monuments. A grin forms on her face. "Yup! Resin is on the third flour, and the boutique is just a few stores down from it." she had two fingers on the stores that the two really wanted to get to, and she grins rather widely about it. "The closest elevators are right over.... there." Gaia points towards the right.

    As they had made it towards the Resin Monuments store, Gaia looked around the store in awe. "It looks gorgeous in here..." She murmurs as she looks at a few of the figurines that were on display. "Hello there! Can I help you two ladies out with anything?" A sales guy asks as Gaia went to a shelf and was debating on if she wanted one of the figurines there. "Maybe I can interest you in a Panda Figurine? Or a few different poses of him?" The guy was motioning towards a cabinet of figurines that were nothing but pandas. Gaia looked over to Victoria, wondering if Victoria was going to say anything as they were here for her. "You were looking for Astrid Floss, yes?" She asks her companion. "Oh! No, Astrid isn't as great as these Pandas. They are super limited addition and super collectable. Even more than Astrid! And there's also these Fox figurines and Bunny ones!" He kept on listing other various figurines that were 'ultra rare and limited addition' that he had in his store. Gaia bit her bottom lip as she glances around the store, wondering if she could eye the one that Victoria did want, having a glimpse of the figurine on the lacrima TV earlier.

    "I'm just looking for now... Thank you though." She was trying to shake this guy off a bit, but he didn't seem to be having it as he put a ferret figurine in front of her. It actually looked very much like Noya. "This is the limited addition Gaia Sabin Rising Star Companion Figurine!" He says. Gaia's face turned beet red as she honestly didn't think she would have a figurine of herself here. Her head swiveled to Victoria, asking her for some sort of help mentally.

    "I'll try to work with others, but I'll be frank with you. Old habits are hard to shake." Victoria told Gaia in a non-confrontational way. Victoria was not used to working with others because in her street experience partnerships were built on quicksand. They were shaky at best and tended to fall apart when put under any sort of pressure like something not quite going to plan or even achieving the objective and having to divide the spoils. The only consistent "partnership" was with Burr, but that relationship was involuntarily ended eight years ago by the actions of slavers.

    Gaia seemed passionate about love having a purpose and said that all love did not have to be romantic. The Ace had a point. Victoria was not keen on being anyone's "friend with benefits" but would be fine with a platonic relationship if she pursued one. She had never pursued a relationship because survival came first. One day she needed to do something other than just survive and work for money. She was not sure when that day would come.

    "Cosplay cafe? Oh yeah... I've heard about those places." Victoria said in a tone one normally reserved for "gentleman's clubs" and other places of questionable repute.

    "If you actually worked in one of those without hitting anyone for getting too handsy, I think you're well on the way to becoming a Wizard Saint." Victoria tried to make a joke out of what Gaia said about cosplay cafes being frequented by rude children and perverts. She had never personally worked in one, but she had overheard stories of what went on in them. Tales of backsides and chests being accidentally (or deliberately) touched by handsy men were all too common. Victoria would not tolerate that sort of treatment and would only work in a cosplay cafe as a last resort. She wondered if Astrid or Samira had ever worked in one of those cafes.

    Victoria listened as Gaia ascertained the location of Resin Monuments, which was on the third floor. It was not too far from Olga's Boutique, which was rather convenient because Gaia stated that the boutique was her destination. She followed the bespectacled Ace into the nearest elevator and waited patiently as it ascended to the third floor.

    -Inside Resin Monuments-

    Victoria entered Resin Monuments with Gaia in tow and was greeted by a male worker. She raised a hand in greeting and browsed the shelves, which were neatly organized and stocked with figurines that were labeled according to their rank. There were sections devoted to current Rising Stars, former Rising Stars, current Wizard Saints, and former Wizard Saints. Gaia asked if the brunette was looking for a figurine of Astrid Foss. The salesman seized on that and began pitching panda figurines in several different poses, such as a panda hugging a bundle of bamboo, a panda eating a bamboo shoot held in its front paws, and a sleeping panda curled up into a black and white ball.

    Victoria could appreciate the enthusiasm with which the fellow tried to sell his wares, but the brunette did not want a panda. She wanted Astrid Foss and Samira Nassar. She began to browse the shelves of figurines and found a good variety to choose from.

    She looked in the Current Wizard Saints section and spotted the distinctive red coat and red hat of Sabertooth's Guild Master Ryo Knetegawa, some dark-haired girl named Sorano Granon whose face looked more than a bit depressed, a blonde guy named Ruvel Mizune, and some white-haired chick in a white-and-purple outfit named Nessa Cordelia Lux. She also spotted a dark-haired guy named Mura Kensho and some guy named Johann von Weiss. The brunette quickly spotted a pattern: most of the current Wizard Saints were from Fairy Tail and West Fiore Trading Company.

    There was no sign of Samira Nassar, which made the brunette somewhat unhappy. She wanted a Samira Nassar figurine and one of Astrid Foss. She looked through the Former Rising Stars section and saw a figurine of some blonde chick with a sword named Leona Jarnefeldt. She was from Desierto and had garnered a bit of a reputation for taking the most dangerous jobs around and completing them by herself. Victoria did not know whether she was brave or suicidal, but it was good to see that the former was far from the only mage who liked to live dangerously. Victoria also saw names like Althea Eventide and that Theo Silversong guy from the Halloween party. Her train of thought was interrupted when she saw the figurine of Gaia and her pet Noya.

    "That figurine looks just like you, Gaia! It's kinda cute, actually. So's the Noya figurine." Victoria commented to the Sabertooth Ace. The figurine had the glasses, the outfit, and everything that made Gaia... well, Gaia. The Noya figurine was just as detailed as her owner, something that Victoria appreciated because all of the figurines were rather expensive. The salesman seized on her appreciation for detail and renewed his efforts to sell the panda figurines.

    The brunette just wanted to buy a few special figurines and move on, but the sales pitches were starting to wear her down. She finally saw the Samira Nassar and Astrid Foss figurines that had prompted the visit to Resin Monuments in the first place, but below them was a special offer.

    "25% off with purchase of a Panda!"

    Victoria sighed. It looked like she was going to be buying a Panda or two after all. At least the figurines were collector-quality and not some cheap plastic versions churned out for a quick buck.

    "I'll take Samira Nassar, Astrid Foss, Gaia Sabin, Noya, and a Panda eating bamboo and a sleeping Panda, please." Victoria finally admitted defeat. She did not want to stay in here all days because Gaia wanted to go to Olga's Boutique and maybe buy some clothing there. As much as she hated to admit it, Victoria was mildly interested in what the boutique had to offer. She needed to by something other than military surplus clothing to update her rather limited wardrobe.

    GAIA SABIN
    The Cards Aren't Always Right
    At the mention of old habits being hard to shake, Gaia couldn’t help but chuckle as she understood quite well how that was. She had a few minor things about herself that were hard for her to shake too still. She wasn’t going to push the other mage too much to work with others, but she only hoped she’d be safe on her missions, with or without a partner along with her. She honestly was hoping she wasn’t being too nosy with her questions and wasn’t upsetting the other mage. At talk of the cosplay cafe, the tarot mage couldn’t help but giggle to the others comment. “Yeah… they’re not for the impatient really… but I somehow managed to not hit anyone.” She shakes her head to her and shrugs her shoulders once again. “Kinda helped that I had my boyfriend there to help me keep my head level when someone got a bit too much for me…” She rubs the back of her head as she blushed, embarrassed. She felt like she was talking about Kyran a bit too much, and didn’t like remembering how that day went down at the cafe, especially with the one customer that she could barely handle emotionally.

    As they were in Resin Monuments, Gaia wasn’t sure how to handle this man, but clears her throat. “I’m not the one looking for anything to be quite honest… but that figurine you’re holding is of Noya, who’s right here.” She motions to the eager ferret on her shoulders, who was all too excited to see a companion figurine of her. The man blinked a moment before he looked to the ferret, then to Gaia, who simply smiled brightly to them and waved. Her smile slightly wavered though, as she was a bit uneasy with this pushy salesperson though. She looks over to Victoria and excuses herself to go over to her where she saw the other figurine. “Oh! It… oh.” She felt her face turning red in embarrassment again, and scratched the back of her head. “I never thought there would be things of me being made… I’m not that interesting of a person, even as a Rising Star…” She takes a deep breath. Out of all the Rising Stars she knew of, she bet she was probably the least qualified to be one. The fact that this figurine also included her staff and cloak and typical boring attire, when she wasn’t going out for pleasure or wanted to dress up, made her cover her mouth a bit. It did look rather cute in a small version. Now she guessed her boring attire wasn’t too terrible after all. Noya chirped at her figurine, loving how it looked and how it showed her off. The creature even went to attempt to strike the same pose the figurine did while on Gaia’s shoulders.

    Noya chirped at Gaia as she stood in the store. She really wanted a figurine of herself. Gaia bit her lip as she looks to the Noya figurine, and then to Noya. She couldn’t help herself. She needed to get it. She glanced over to see a Ruvel figurine, and tapped her chin a little. To have a figurine of her little ferret and her mentor… or to just have one of the ferret…? Gaia doesn’t take too long, but she looks over to the salesman. “I’ll take Noya, and Ruvel Mizune. No panda please.” She didn’t think she should have her own figurine. To the tarot mage, it seemed weird. Noya was a narcissist a bit, so it was understandable to her that the ferret wanted herself. The salesman was about to try and advertise more, but she held her hand up gingerly. “Apologies… I’d like no more. Maybe next time I shall, but not so soon.” Her voice was stern, making her statement definite as her burnt sienna eyes bore up at the man since she was shorter than he.

    When they were all done in there it was only a short walk down the way to the boutique that she wanted to go to. As soon as they entered, there were various colors around them. From the floor, to the walls, to the ceiling, and even the clothes. There seemed to be clothes of various types for nearly everyone. A smile was on Gaia’s face though as she spotted something that made her confident that this was her Olga’s store. By the cash register was a lifesize poster cutout of Gaia at the Fiore’s Next Top Model competition a few months back in one of the outfits she wore for her. “Alright… this is the store I was thinking of.” She walks in a bit and puts her hand on some of the clothes there, admiring them. Her burnt sienna eyes were wide with excitement, almost seeming like they were sparkling with joy, while she was keeping herself as calm as she could here. The person behind the cash register had to blink a bit and scratched at their eyes to make sure she was seeing right. “Oh my goodness! You’re Gaia Sabin! Olga’s main model! Welcome to the store!” She noticed Victoria, and smiles brightly to her as well. “Both of you have half off of your total at checkout. Olga’s demands. Can I help you two with anything? I’m Riley.” Gaia chuckles to herself as she shook her head. Of course Olga had done that. And she wasn’t going to argue with that woman. “No thank you. I’m mainly browsing right now…” She looks to Victoria, then glances around the store.

    She seemed to spy things near immediately that would work together and comes back with both her arms full if Victoria didn’t go too far or seemed like she was going to pick anything outright, with or without the assistants help. “Were you wanting to try some clothes on?” She questions as she holds up her arms a little. “If you’re not, that’s okay. But I know you were seeming like you were upset about your body earlier… so I was thinking that maybe you might like to try one of these outfits that could flatter your body nicely, regardless of how your body looks.” She hoped she wasn’t overstepping her boundaries with this. If Victoria welcomed her help, she’d be presented with an outfit that had an off the shoulder white button up shirt that sleeves went to the elbows, complete with a blue shoulderless off the shoulder jacket that had a clasp at the collar, black shorts that went down to mid thigh, and a couple belts. The thicker of the two belts was to go around her waist, the other more of a decoration on the shorts if she wished to use it. The other outfit was a black tank top, with a crop jacket that went to the elbows again, holed jean pants, a black belt with a splash of orange on it, and some lace up boots that was supposed to go to just below the knees. She spies a soft peach scarf near the cash register, but that could be added later.

    Adventures In Shopping Empty Re: Adventures In Shopping

    Post by Victoria Sheridan 11th April 2019, 10:29 am

    By the time she had finished paying for everything Victoria had left Resin Monuments with far more than she had intended to buy. She had intended to buy figurines of Samira Nassar and Astrid Foss but ended up buying those figurines plus two pandas, Gaia Sabin, Noya, and a Ryo figurine. The last three were impulse buys The Sorano figurine looked kind of sad to be left behind, but Victoria had to leave some behind to avoid destroying her budget after finally achieving financial solvency. The Sabertooth mage left the shop before she made any more impulse purchases and put her budget under even more strain.

    Victoria peeked inside the bag and looked at the figures ensconced within protective plastic cases nestled inside a white box with the figure's name across the top and their rank at the bottom. Such measures might have been a bit excessive for resin figurines, but as long as they got home intact she did not mind. She did not want to get back to Sabertooth Guild Hall to find her expensive purchases broken up by small bumps and knocks. That would be both infuriating and a major downer, which would be a bad way to end an otherwise good day.

    Victoria followed Gaia out of Resin Monuments and back into the mall to go to Olga's Boutique, the bespectacled mage's objective for today. The pair had to swim upstream against the crowd of fellow shoppers clutching their bagged purchases, but they reached the shop without incident and without contact from the mage targeting female shoppers. Perhaps he was busy plying his "trade" elsewhere in the mall. If he chose to target them, the Sabertooth mages would make him regret ever setting foot here.

    Victoria followed Gaia into Olga's Boutique and prepared to hang back and let the Ace do the talking in the boutique. She never knew when she would run into old enemies she had made in Capital Crocus by virtue of coming from the wrong neighborhood and not having money. Knowing her luck one of her old enemies would be a store owner.

    -Inside Olga's Boutique-

    The boutique was a clean and well-lit shop that was lined with wall-to-wall racks of clothing for every budget and taste. Victoria was never one to pay attention to fashion because she could not afford to. She also could not find anything halfway decent for someone of her body type. Most guys liked the "supermodel with a big chest" body possessed by someone like Gaia or Masha. Victoria was not blessed with that body type and had a few issues because of it, namely being mistaken for a guy in drag.

    The incident in the food court only served to dredge up that old insecurity. Victoria thought that she had finally moved on from it when she had grown older and left the preteen and teenage years behind, but that was not the case. On the contrary, the insecurity seemed to only grow the older she got.

    Victoria looked around the various racks to see if there was any article of clothing or outfit that she could add to her limited wardrobe. There was no shortage of clothing to choose from, but the brunette wanted to choose the right clothing because not just anything would do. She wanted something that actually looked decent on her, but she did not even know where to begin. Her adopted father Lawrence Sheridan had taught her a lot of useful skills, but how to go shopping for clothes was not among them.

    Instead she hung back and let Gaia do the talking while looking at her purchases. She was glad that she had managed to buy Samira Nassar and Astrid Foss. She was unable to find an Izayuki figurine, but that was to be expected since the Wizard Saint tended to stay out of the public eye and one could not make an accurate resin figurine if the model hardly appeared in public. It was at that moment that her mind began to wander from the subject of Izayuki to the subject of the figurines she had already bought. By coincidence the Noya and Ryo figurines had been placed in the bag next to each other. That happy accident gave rise to an amusing mental image.

    Instead of Noya being draped across Gaia's shoulders like a feather boa, Victoria imagined that Ryo was Noya's owner. The thought of Noya being draped across the shoulders of Ryo's distinctive red coat was more than a little amusing. The thought of the always serious Ryo having the carefree and energetic Noya draped across his shoulders was hilarious. Victoria almost started laughing but stopped when Gaia asked her whether the former was interested in browsing at clothing too.

    Gaia even offered to help her find clothing that could help ameliorate Victoria's particular problem of looking like a guy in drag. Victoria blushed and left the odd thoughts behind to focus on the present. The bespectacled mage was offering help and Victoria would be wise to at least give her an answer.

    "Hmmm..." Victoria started her answer while facing the inquisitive mage. She was not sure what style to go for. Did she want to go bright and colorful or did she want to stick with more subdued colors? The brunette's preference had always leaned towards more subdued colors since they kept her from standing out in a crowd, but maybe she needed to change things up a bit. Gaia was doing her best to help and be a friend to someone who did not have many friends to start with. Victoria owed it to her to at least try to participate in something normal teenage and young adult women did every day.

    "Yeah, I think I need to add something to my wardrobe besides military surplus clothing." Victoria replied. She decided to throw caution to the wind and see what Gaia could come up with. Gaia had thought ahead and was already holding two possible outfits to choose from. One was an outfit that had an off the shoulder white button up shirt that sleeves went to the elbows, complete with a blue shoulderless off the shoulder jacket that had a clasp at the collar, black shorts that went down to mid thigh, and a couple belts. The other outfit was a black tank top, with a crop jacket that went to the elbows again, holed jean pants, a black belt with a splash of orange on it, and some lace up boots that was supposed to go to just below the knees.

    "I like both of those, but like in that movie with the immortal dudes fighting one another throughout the ages until there's just one of them left, there can be only one." Victoria gave her opinion of Gaia's selections. The blue outfit had a cute look that had a certain appeal; there would be very little mistaking her for a guy in that. However, she was digging the well-worn aesthetic of the second outfit. Which one would be the best choice for her?

    GAIA SABIN
    The Cards Aren't Always Right
    Gaia was rather excited as she had made her way to Olga's Boutique with Victoria, honestly nearly forgetting that she came here originally for the one mission of finding the one guy. She kept her stuff hanging on her arm, and Noya curled on her neck. When she had gone in the store, Gaia had motioned for her partner to come in with her. Of course she wouldn't mind coming here on her own, but she was here with someone! She wasn't going to just ditch them. After Gaia had gone off to find Victoria some clothes and was coming back to her, she noticed her companion was looking amused by something, and was honestly curious about what it was. She held up the clothes a bit to her, letting her see them and decide which she wished to try on first. As the other decided she did want to try on clothes, Gaia grins. Though, her smile faded a bit when she said she could only choose one. "How about this, since you like them both, try them both on in the fitting rooms, and if you like how they look on you, I'll buy them. It'll be my treat for dragging you along with me today." She muses. It also helped that the complete total of the purchases would be half off, so they could buy four outfits and pay for practically only two of them.

    A giggle came from Gaia as she had a thought. "This must be why Olga loves being a fashion designer! Helping others feel good in their body with her clothes. She seemed all too eager dressing me up for the modeling competition." She looks to the entrance as a few other girls came into the shop and were greeted by Riley. She then looks back to Victoria and motions with her head to the back. "The fitting rooms are back here. Let's go try them on. And if you don't like either of these, I can find a couple more outfits." She muses as she starts walking to the rooms. She pauses though before turning her head to look to Victoria. She was able to keep the clothes balanced on her arms the whole time. "That is, if you'd like me to find more outfits for you, at least." She didn't want to jump the gun there and feel like she was pressuring her guild mate to get something here. That wouldn't really have been good of her, and slightly defeat the purpose too.

    Gaia had set the clothes in one of the fitting rooms for Victoria and already started looking for some clothes for herself to try on. She just wasn’t sure what style she wanted to go for. She could pretty much have a variety of styles and still feel cute, but she realized she ultimately went back to the short skirted dresses look. Outside the store, a guy begun to cackle rather loudly. He wore what seemed to be a pair of female panties on his head as he looked around, waving his hands slowly. “It is I! The Panty Wizard! The strongest mage of all at H rank!” He booms with a cackle. Gaia had froze as she saw this guy outside of Olga’s shop. The Panty Wizard? As he had showed up and begun yelling, some female patrons begun running away from the area, shrieking in slight fear from him possibly stealing their undergarments. He then waves his hand and shook it a bit before panties of all the nearby females disappeared.

    Gaia let up a gasp as her hand went between her legs, suddenly feeling her underwear gone. “Noya! Go get him!” She cries out and points towards the man who suddenly had a variety of underwears in his arms, and somewhere in there was hers. Noya jumps off of Gaia’s shoulders and the duo started running after him. The man had seemed to notice Gaia running after him as he was running away, and chuckles to himself as he waved his hand at her and suddenly her skirt, shirt, undershirt, and bra were no longer on her body. She let up a gasp and quickly covered her chest and crouches down into a ball to conceal herself. The only things she now wore, were her gloves, white leggings, and her boots, and her bag with her tarot cards were still on her. The next thing she knew, she felt her cards practically shoving her staff out of the bag, and she quickly yanks it out before she throws it sideways at the Panty Wizard. The staff clanked on the ground before it slid after the guy and managing to slip under his feet. Underwear had gone flying as the Panty Wizard was sent on his back from the staff slipping under his feet just right. She smirks slightly and stayed where she was, feeling uncomfortable getting up since her clothes were now missing...

    Victoria was surprised that Gaia had offered to buy both of the outfits for her. The outfits were of good quality and looked good, but they were not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. Thanks to Gaia's sudden offer, the brunette was now placed in an awkward position. She had no idea how to respond to it without possibly upsetting the Sabertooth ace and straining their growing friendship. Victoria had to stop in place and think the matter through, something that she was not very good at.

    Either decision the brunette could make risked her looking bad. Gaia had made the offer out of friendship and as compensation for "dragging" Victoria to Olga's Boutique. Victoria wanted to accept out of respect for the spirit in which the offer was made, but she could not quite bring herself to accept it just yet.

    Accepting would make her look bad because Gaia was with her in Resin Monuments. Earlier she was willing to spend a considerable sum on resin figurines but was reluctant to spend money on clothing despite her wardrobe desperately needing updating. That did not make Victoria look good... at the very least she looked like she had questionable priorities. At worst the brunette looked like a cheapskate.

    Declining the bespectacled mage's offer did not come without downsides of its own. Gaia might be insulted by the implication that her suggested outfits were not good enough for Victoria. Victoria really liked both outfits because the blue one had a feminine look that was not too feminine for her and the "rock groupie" outfit struck a balance between feminine and masculine without going too far into either camp. What should she do?

    Victoria looked at the clothes, then at Gaia. The former wondered why the latter was willing to buy the outfits for her despite their cost. Maybe Gaia was feeling generous because Victoria had bought both the Gaia Sabin and Noya figurines at Resin Monuments. Victoria looked at her guildmate again, then voiced her decision.

    "If you'd buy both outfits for me, I'd appreciate it." Victoria said to Gaia, finally putting an end to the guessing game and voicing her decision. She would not turn the offer down... for the first two outfits, that was. If she found any more outfits that she liked the brunette would buy them on her own dime instead of mooch off of Gaia. Victoria felt that that was an acceptable compromise. Gaia would buy the first two outfits without feeling insulted and Victoria would accept her guildmate's offer without looking like a cheapskate.

    Victoria's good cheer was short-lived because Gaia walked out of Olga's Boutique to investigate something that had caught her attention. Victoria felt obliged to help the Guild Ace, so she left the dressing room behind and found Gaia standing outside facing a guy with a pair of panties on his head. It was a long time in coming, but Victoria had finally encountered something that left her speechless. Just what kind of weird person was she facing?

    “It is I! The Panty Wizard! The strongest mage of all at H rank!” The man proudly proclaimed. Victoria was again left speechless. She was able to open her mouth, but no words came out. It took awhile before she was finally able to say something in response.

    "You're certainly open about what you are." Victoria snarked at him. She noticed some female patrons of the mall run for it before the guy waved his hand and shook it a bit before he lived up to his name and stole the undergarments of all the females present. The first sign Victoria noticed that his perverted brand of magic had worked was when Gaia was suddenly missing every article of clothing except for her gloves, white leggings, her boots, and her bag with her tarot cards. The second sign was when Victoria suddenly noticed that her clothing was missing except for her black bra and underwear.

    Victoria turned away from the nearly nude and deeply embarrassed Gaia with a beet red blush on her face. Seeing her guildmate in such a state was awkward, but Gaia was far from the only female who was affected by the undergarment thief's magic. The bespectacled mage had managed to get revenge of a sorts by throwing her staff in such a way that the running thief had tripped on it, which gave Victoria a good chance of catching up with him. Victoria began striding towards him with violence on her mind and her fists clenched. The man noticed her approach and began to scramble to his feet.

    "You won't get away from me!" Victoria declared as she raised her right hand, formed it into the shape of a gun, and focused magic into it until the tip glowed gold. She then fired a Taser Spark at the man and watched the golden projectile hit him in the back as he stood up. The man screamed in a pitch that made him sound like a dolphin before flopping helplessly onto the tile floor and trembling from the effects of the Taser Spark. The Panty Wizard was not dead, but by the time the day was over he would wish that Victoria had killed him. Victoria walked over to the man, dragged him by his feet over to a decorative pillar near some railing, and stood him up, then gripped the collar of his shirt with both hands.

    "OK jackass, here's the deal. You give all the women back their clothes and their undergarments and I don't punch your face in." Victoria made an offer to the so-called H-Rank wizard. This creep was a pretender who was weaker than even a novice mage. Victoria was the genuine article, a mage who had spent many months working to earn the power of a H-Rank mage.

    Five mall security men hurried up to them as Victoria held him in place and Noya scrambled a safe distance away to escape the feet of mall security. She looked at them, then looked at the guy. They looked tense... the security guards probably expected her to either punch his face in or throw him over the railing. Victoria would do neither because as creepy as the guy was, she was not going to murder him in public.

    "Don't worry, guys. I'm not going to kill him. You can have him." Victoria assured security before stepping out of the way and letting two security guards grab the panty wizard. Now the brunette knew that escape was impossible for him. If he had any sense of self-preservation, he would return the clothes to his victims before someone else decided to murder the creep.

    GAIA SABIN
    The Cards Aren't Always Right
    In all honesty, Gaia wouldn’t of minded if Victoria didn’t want her to pay for the clothes. It was just a simple offer to her since she liked both of the outfits and had said that there could only be one. To her, it clicked like she wished to have both, but wasn’t able to. Like her designer does for her, Gaia wanted Victoria to feel great in her clothes like she did and love what was on her. Her intent wasn’t to make her feel awkward or anything at all. The only one that would be insulted over the clothes not being gotten, would be Olga. She loved hearing others getting her clothes, and since she already gave gaia half off the total jewels at checkout, it made it all the better. She opens her mouth to let the other know that she didn’t need to accept her offer, when Victoria had finally accepted her offer. Gaia blushed and nods. “Awesome! Olga would be super happy to hear someone else likes the clothing she makes. Maybe Riley will be able to take half off of everything in the future for you too if you wanna come back here.” She smiles to her.

    As the pair ended up face to face with the Panty Wizard, Gaia glanced to Vic at her comment of the Panty Wizard announcing himself. She had that right. When she had begun chasing him, and he suddenly poofed her clothes away, Gaia was clearly not a happy camper. She was glad that she was able to help Victoria get the Panty Wizard by tripping him when she threw her staff at him. She watched through her glasses lenses as Victoria went after the guy. She blinked as she watched her seem to use her magic through her hands. She’s seen a few people do that before, but not up close like this. As the taser hit the panty wizard, Gaia saw him fall down, and felt something on her shoulders. Looking up, Gaia saw that Riley had been helpful and put one of the bigger sized button up shirts on her shoulders, while she also seemed a bit awkward. She could only assume it's the lack of underwear that made her feel like so. "I'm telling Olga to give you a raise." She tells her with a smile as she quickly goes to button the shirt up.

    As Victoria dragged the guy, she slowly stood up and was glad for the obviously far too big shirt since it covered her up a bit, but she felt weird being in public. She rolled up her sleeves and heard her companion demand the clothes back from the guy who stole them while she made her way over to them after that last button was done. She smiles nervously and scratches the back of her head. “You’re much braver than me, even though you have something to cover yourself.” She couldn’t help but tell her with a nervous chuckle. The ‘wizard’ guy looks to the two of them before he quickly nods his head and waves his hand. All the clothing, underwear and all, went back to their respective owners. Gaia gasped as her clothes were suddenly under the shirt she was wearing, and she starts to slightly unbutton it since the clothes were now suffocating her. Taking a deep breath, she slips off the shirt while the guy was being taken away.

    “Well… thank you for helping me with him… I hope you'll want to come just shopping with me again, or hang out in general, without us having to go after a creep or whatever." She looks back towards Riley, and smiles wide. She holds up the shirt a little to her. “I think I’ll actually buy this shirt too! It’s rather comfortable. I could wear it around the house on lazy days~!” She smiles to the girl who still seemed uncomfortable from the whole ordeal. Gaia had quickly gone in the store again, bought the shirt, and brought the bag that had Victoria’s new clothes in it, out. “Here you go. I-” “Attention shoppers, the mall will be closing in an hour. I hope you had a pleasant time shopping. I repeat; The mall will be closing in an hour.” The announcement made the tarot mage take a deep breath. “Well… that was fun while it lasted. I do have some paperwork to still deal with… I guess I’ll treat you to some food next time.” She giggles. “Thank you again for accompanying me. Pretty sure Noya had fun too.” As soon as she mentioned the ferret, Noya crawled up Victoria and nuzzled her cheek before jumping over to Gaia and curling around her masters neck happily.
