    Returning from breakfast down stairs in the Fairy Hills lobby, Arcadia closed the door to her room behind her. Just a few steps away from the door, her iLac sounded its alert for a new text. She pulled it from its pocket in her dress. It was a message from Lynn, one of Princess of Fiore's personal advisers. The young blonde slayer tapped open her messages, and quietly read over everything Lynn had written.


    From Lynn: Ms. Fairchilde. I hope all is well. On behalf of the Princess, I'd like to extend hers and our gratitude for getting the Princess's song recorded and out in the public eye. From what she tells me, it has been selling well, and she has since taken steps to form her own band, Purple Reign. In thanks for all your help, the Princess asked me to extend an invitation and two backstage passes for you and a friend to the Hardly Strictly Jazz Festival at South Gate Park in Magnolia.

    Thanks to the recent success the song you and Fairy Tail published for the Princess, I managed to wrangle Purple Reign into the line up. Right in your own backyard. The Princess is thrilled to performing with big names like Pink Tiara and others. I understand it is quite an eclectic mix of performers, so whatever your tastes, you and anyone you bring along should find a couple shows to enjoy. If time permits feel free to stop backstage and meet with the Princess and myself.  Your friend, Ellie, will be with us as well, though she will be busy supervising security for the Princess and her band.

    Your tickets and backstage passes should be delivered shortly by Exceed Express.



    Arcadia quickly tapped out a response to thank Lynn and formally accept the tickets and passes. She slipped her iLac back into her pocket. One person came immediately to mind on who to invite to go with her. It had been awhile since she had gotten to hang out with her best friend and surrogate big sister, Nessa, without it being official guild or Ace business or a mission.  It would be good to do something with big sister again where the only to worry about was having fun.

    She didn't have to wait around long, an Exceed working for Exceed Express arrived within the hour. The young, pale blonde slayer signed for gifts from the Princess and tipped the Exceed.  In the enveloped the Exceed delivered were the tickets and backstage passes Lynn had promised.

    With her dimensional scissors she could find Nessa wherever she happened to be. Arcadia almost drew the whimsical scissors  out, but she checked her adolescent enthusiasm. At least enough to decide it would be better to knock. Since it was still early, she might catch Nessa still at home or just leaving for the guild hall. Arcadia drew her scissors into hand, giving them a test snip at empty air.   Then bringing the outside of the Lux home into mind, she snipped again at midair. This time a portal opened up, and Arcadia walked on through. She left her Fairy Hills room behind, and stepped out of another portal directly in front of  Nessa's family house.  For a moment, she thought may be she should have mad ea side trip to the bakery to get a few mini cheesecakes. She was already here though, so she knocked on the door as the portal closed behind her.

    In the Lux household that morning there was a rare event going on. For the first time in particularly long time, the family were having breakfast together. Nessa had stayed in the night before, Richard had work but wasn't required to go in until mid-day and Edward, Nessa's cousin was on half term. So the three of them, along with Sebastian the exceed, and Arielle the fairy were all gathered around the dining table. Thoroughly enjoying a rare buffet-style breakfast with plates full of fried bacon, and eggs, some sunny side up, some scrambled. Grilled tomatoes and fried mushrooms, with toast and buttered bread. Truly a feast for the family, currently being enjoyed over a generic conversation.

    "So this portal just appeared in front of the guild for no reason?" Richard asked his daughter, in response to the tale she was telling him about a recent experience. Nessa nodded, swallowing the bite of toast she had been chewing on. "Yep, not just in front of our guild, but apparently they appeared everywhere. There was a couple in Era, one in Midi, Peace Village, the Celestial Sanctum, literally Dad, they were all over the place. And on top of which all these strange Christmas related creatures came out of them which we had to subdue." She explained, he nodded. "Curious, it's a shame I was tied up at the office and couldn't head out to get any DNA samples. It would've been good to run some tests to see where they came from," He replied thoughtfully.

    "You should have seen it, Richard, there was a walking Christmas tree that released these exploding presents and ...well when one hit Nessa..." Sebastian began looking at Nessa mischievious, Nessa shot him a glare. "Finish that sentence, and I'll call Markus and have him bring Hela here. She can join us for breakfast, the dish being you." She growled Sebastian, rolled his eyes. "I wanna know what happened!" Edward whined, glancing between the two, who were currently having a stare down, almost a battle of wills between the Starlight Maiden and Exceed to see who would crack first. Nessa didn't want Sebastian to tell the embarrassing story about how she had magically had her clothes disappear in front of a bunch of people, including at least two males, both of which were her guildmates.

    It was then that there was a knock on the door.


    Richard slid out of his seat, heading around the table he would leave the dining room and make his way to the hallway. He would open the door and see Arcadia standing there; he smiled politely. "Hello Arcadia, nice to see you again. Please come in; we're just finishing our breakfast." He said, stepping aside to let her in. "Nessa's just in the dining room," He would nod her to follow him, leading her through the kitchen to the attached dining room, where Nessa and Sebastian were still glaring at each other. Richard, did a little cough, drawing their attention. As Nessa's eyes left Sebastian's and landed on her best friend, her face lit up in a smile. "Oh, Hi Arca!" She said happily, getting out of her seat and walking around the table to greet her with a hug. "What brings you here?" She asked, Sebastian and Arielle would wave in greeting at Arcadia, while Edward, an eleven-year-old with messy brown hair and dark eyes. Still sitting there in his pyjamas, would blush at the sight of her, ducking slightly behind the table, only to peer over the edge at them.

    Arcadia entered, smiling and bowing to Richard, "Thanks, Mr. Lux."  She briefly wondered what it would be like if Nessa was her real sister. It be 'Dad' instead of 'Mr. Lux', and she would call this nice house home. Also, she would have more family, and recent legal nonsense regarding her Fiore citizenship status would be non-existent. A little sense of dread and guilt then crept over her. A part of her felt very sure, she would doom them to die just as her biological human family and foster dragon mother already had.

    The barefoot slayer shook off such morose thoughts. Besides, big sister Nessa and the others of Fairy Tail, whom she already considered her third family, were more than capable enough wizards to handle anything that would threaten to take them away from her. On that more reassuring thought, Arcadia smiled brightly to Nessa, Sebby,  Arielle, Edward, and back to Richard. She felt the excitement that had brought her over in the first place, grow back into her heart.

    She returned Nessa's hug, and hugged up Sebby too! She smiled at the half-hidden Edward, "Hey there! Looks like yer kinda like me. Strangers aren't my favourite either. Just so we're not strangers no more, I'm Arcadia Mavis Elaine Fairchilde. You can call me Arca too though. No one but my mom was ever allowed to use either of my middle names... so never mind that I just said them."

    Arcadia rubbed the back of her neck in thought, springing back to Nessa's question,"Oh yeah! Why I'm here. Uh, I don't know if you heard besides making y- Uh... Co- That woman you stmt my way, a published, best-selling author, and a few lacrima-net videos, F.T.P., Fairy Tail Productions, has published a few songs and albums on the lacrima-net too.

    By the way, if that author ever has any more manuscripts, feel free to pass them my way. Her last book spent a few weeks on the top of the best sellers list. There's some tell all book there now, but her book is taking off in Midi and Bosco now. F.T.P. would be willing to give her a generous advance of Jewel for any future works. "


    She started to hop excitedly around when she returned to her announcement, "Anyway, our best selling song so far was the one we helped the Princess of Fiore put out. It was originally part of a deal for her on going investment in our productions. It turned out better and sold way faster than any of us thought.

    We didn't even advertise the song as by the princess. Didn't really hide that it was either, so mage that had downing to do with it. Point is, the princess has now formed her own band, I guess as a hobby? Dunno. Either way, on her behalf, one of the princess's advisers sent me tickets, backstage passes, and an invite to the music festival the princess's band has been booked at, as a thank you. It's right here Magnolia too, the Hardly Strictly Jazz Music Festival. They hold it every year in South Gate Park.

    Our tickets will let us into any of the shows, and the passes will into all the VIP spots. We don't even havta stop and see the princess's show, unless there's time. Her adviser, Lynn, did invite me to stop by if I wanted. The tickets and passes are for me and any one other person I wanna invite. I knew exactly who I wanted to go with me, so what do you say, big sister, how about a girls' weekend atta hella hyphy music festival? The crowds will be crazy for sure, but these passes should let us avoid the worst of them."


    Arcadia sniffed at the air, finally aware of the smell of breakfast at a conscious level now that she had made her announcement. She smiled sheepishly, "Something sure smells hella good. I'm sorry if I interrupted breakfast. Hardly Strictly goes all weekend so we got time to get ready. Would I be imposing too much if I joined you all for breakfast?"

    Nessa tilted her head, watching the exchange between Arcadia and Edward. Edward, did not lift his head past the table, just nodded as she introduced herself quite sweetly to him. He said nothing, despite her niceness, it didn't do much to alleviate his shyness. "Don't worry about him, that's my cousin Eddie, he's a little shy." He poked his head up for a moment, "It's Edward! Not Eddie!" Nessa raised her brows at him, he looked at Arca once again before ducking back behind the table, even redder than before.

    Nessa looked back at Arcadia, as she was hit with the full pelt of her words. Man, that was a lot of words to take it once. Nessa watched her lips carefully, trying to take in the details of what she was saying. Talking about her manuscripts, and lacrima-net videos, and how something was getting published. Or wait, no, something had been published and or was it? Nessa couldn't keep up. It then moved on a song, made for a Princess of Fiore. Apparently, it was part of the contract Arcadia had set up with them, and that the Princess of Fiore was...in a band? As the story when on, Nessa finally understood what it was Arcadia was getting to. She had been giving tickets to a concert, VIP tickers no less, she beamed as her bestie essentially invited her along to a concert. Nessa squealed excitedly, clapping, "Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. Oh my gosh, you have no idea how much I need a break right now.!" She replied happily. Nessa turned, scooping up a piece of toast.

    "Okay first of all, when is it? and how long have we got to prepare? Oh my gosh, Arcadia, you know what this means?" She asked, the excitement rising in her tone. "We're going to need to go shopping!" Nessa squealed happily once more, "Okay, yes, sit down, have some breakfast with us. Once we're done, we'll head to the mall. Oh god, I'm so excited." Nessa returned to her seat as her Father pulled back a chair for Arcadia to join them. Nessa's mood had skyrocketed, after all the work they had been doing lately. Nessa felt like she rarely ever had any free time to enjoy herself. She was always running numbers for the guild, talking to clients or going out on jobs. She had hardly any time to hang with family, let alone her friends at the guild. Plus, there was so much Nessa needed to catch Arcadia up on, loads seemed to have happened since their job in Valhall. For one, Markus was back, out of the blue. Only Arcadia knew about what happened that night all those months ago and about the kiss they shared. But a hell of a lot had gone on since then, he'd come back and the first thing he said was that he'd missed. Not only that, he had been gone for years, instead of months. It was just so much, but boy was she glad her bestie was here because Nessa was in need of some real girl talk. Not just about Markus, about Aven too. Nessa needed to ask someone what to do. And Arcadia knew Aven, she just hoped she would understand why Nessa hadn't done anything yet.

    Richard placed a plate in front of Arcadia, Nessa picked up her fork and scooped up some of her fried egg. She chewed for a moment, swallowing her bite she would continue. "So the theme is Jazz music? Or is it generic, we need to plan our outfits accordingly of course. Whatever we go for, they have to have wiggle room for dancing, because I have not boogied in months now." Sebastian scoffed, "Yeah, doing Fiore a favour," Nessa shot him a scowl. She knew he was only teasing, she was a skilled dancer, and she loved it. But her job didn't make much room for busting moves on the dancefloor.

    Understanding how easy it is to be made more shy, Arcadia smiled again to Edward and bowed. "It's nice meeting you." She did not push him any more than that.

    The pale blonde slayer joined the Luxes at their table for breakfast, seating herself in the chair Nessa's dad had kindly pulled back for her. Scooting her chair forward, Arcadia went into the details in question, "I know! Shopping for ourselves and not guild business. I mean, that's fun too, but it's not the same.  And it's this weekend, so that should give us all day today to get ready. Now that my age curse has worn off, my wardrobe that fits is back down to the dress I was wearing while I was in hibernation in Dragnof, and what few clothes I could find and salvage after waking up. I always meant to buy more modern clothing, but never quite got around to it."

    She smiled to Richard as he gave her a plate, and she began to pile on eggs, both sunny side up and scrambled, bacon, grilled tomatoes, toast, and buttered bread. The mushrooms were the only thing the young slayer passed up. She continued to fill in the details, while she simultaneously filled up her plate."Oh! This is delicious. A thousand times hella better than weekday we usually get at Fairy Hills. Uh, don't tell the super l said that though."

    "Hmm, yeah. More general. I hear tell when the festival was first started, the organizers wanted to focus only on jazz, so they called it the 'Strictly Jazz Festival'. As a few years went by, the performers started letting friends who weren't jazz musicians, but still wanted to play, perform with them. The crowds loved some of those friends enough the organizers stated giving them their own performances. Then friends of those friends started asking to perform too. By then it wasn't strictly jazz anymore, so they added the word hardly to the front of the festival name."

    "They get a lot of top name talent to play there, so there should be one or two acts of most any kind of music there. The band's tweet get to play there say they like how non-commercial it is. It only stays that way 'cuz the chief organizer always pays for everything himself. Keeps them from needing advertisers to fund it."


    Arcadia was eating the whole while she went on. She just kept her bites fairly small. That is until She was briefly sidetracked by one bite too big to talk around. Normally, the young slayer would talk while eating, but this upcoming festival has her to edited to remember her manners. She had not realized how hungry She actually was, because she stuffed another bite too big to talk around. Arcadia held a finger to show site had pine more thing to add, and she did as soon as she washed down her mouthful with a suit of juice. She grinned impishly to Sebastian, "Dunn worry, Sebs, no need to be jealous of big sista's boogie prowess. She can't help it if she was born wit mad skills in boogie. Besides, we can getcha in too, then you can boogie with us. Also, since the festival goes all weekend, we can go one or both days. The tickets and passes are good for the whole festival."

    The barefoot slayer went to work putting what was left on her plate into a triple decker sandwich. Her one piece of buttered bread was in the middle with two pieces of toast capping either end. Eggs, bacon and tomato were all stuffed haphazardly somewhere between those three layers.

    Nessa worked through the remainder of her plate as she listened to Arcadia explain to her the details about the festival. She could feel her excitement growing the more she learned. It had been so long since she had really let loose, the last time she'd gotten to have any fun was... probably with Mythal in Midi. But then, that had been maybe a little too much fun, the Midian's were crazy partyers. Even Nessa had struggled to keep up, and they'd only continued to travel from place to place. It had been quite the adventure but, she'd enjoyed it. There hadn't been any fighting or drama, and she had gotten to know Mythal pretty well. She liked him a lot, he was kind of like what she imagined a big brother might have been like. The time before that had... most likely been the time Arcadia slept over. Every others adventure she went on, even though some of them were fun, always seemed to be laced with chaos or fighting of some sort. It would be really nice to just let loose and not have to worry about that.

    Arcadia's words about needing clothes only made Nessa feel more pumped up, that was another thing she hadn't had time to indulge in for the longest time. Fashion. One of her all time favourite hobbies was putting together gorgeous looks, and pairing them with various items to manifest something amazing. The idea of getting together with Arcadia to do something like that sounded so fun, it helped that Arcadia was a super cutie to. Nessa couldn't wait to help her find something amazing to try on, not to mention something pretty she could wear herself. Nessa laughed at Arcadia's comment on the cooking, she had never eaten at Fairy Hills so she wasn't familiar with it her. "Thanks, We all tend to chip in help, so it's a Lux exclusive breakfast you're enjoying. Normally Aunty Ann cooks but she's away right now, so we splitting the housework between us." Nessa explained. Antoinette was an amazing cook, she had travelled so far and learned so many exotic recipes. Nessa kind of missed her cooking, she would have to give her a call soon.

    Arcadia went on to begin talking about the genre of music, answering Nessa's Jazz question. She nodded along enthuisiastically, "Sounds awesome, I can't wait to see what kind of performances there are!" She replied perkily, before finishing off the last bite of her toast. She picked up her glass of Orange Juice and gulped it down. "Oh boy, I am stuffed!" She said, smiling across the table at her family. Edward was still playing shy, semi-hiding behind the table, all the while reaching up to pick something off his plate, his hand disappearing under the table a moment later with some new piece of his breakfast. Sebastian straightened up as Arcadia dressed him, he unlike the rest of them was enjoying a tasty fish for breakfast. He swallowed his bite. "Thank you Arca, I've never been to a festival before. I wouldn't mind seeing what it's like." He said, the corner of Nessa's lip rose. He was so polite to Arcadia compared to everyone else, he didn't even tease her like he did Nessa. Maybe because she was so sweet? Nessa wasn't sure, or maybe he was just praying that she wasn't planning on dressing him up for the Festival too. "I'm happy to do both days if we can, but we'd have to make sure we don't burn ourselves out too much on the first day or we'll be too tired." Nessa said thinking over the best way to spread themselves so they could enjoy all of it without overdoing it. One thing was sure, she'd have to avoid any attempts of people offering her alcohol. She'd had too many silly moments recently, she needed to get a grip and learn to pace herself better. She also had to stop taking the bait whenever someone challenged her, her competitiveness was a really pain at times.

    Arcadia worked on her makeshift breakfast sandwich at a more leisurely pace than she had when starting breakfast with the Luxes. She was starting to get full, but still wanted to finish everything she had taken. Also, this family breakfast thing was something she could get used to. Breakfast at Fairy Hills could have a community feeling, but she and the other girls who called it home were usually going about their lives too fast to enjoy breakfast together.

    She smiled to Sebby, "You may even get to see my other good kitty friend, Ellie, there. She's a captain in the Rune Knights. I met her when she was just a lieutenant when I took a job to be a bodyguard for a Rune Knight major. She's been assigned to guard the Princess lately, so she might be there if we stop by to thank the Princess for the tickets. She's got this battle form she uses while on duty that makes her taller than me."

    The barefoot slayer did not have any intention at the moment to dress Sebby up for the festival, but that did not mean would not be inspired to if she happened to see something while shopping.

    She was down to her last couple bites of breakfast sandwich. Even with her slayer appetite she having to take more time between bites. Arcadia grinned, "Sweet! Maybe the Princess will allow us to hang in her backstage tent, for a place to chill between shows. Of course, Hardly Strictly is in South Gate Park so we can always come back here or the guild hall too. Dimensional scissors make the world a small place. All the convenience of a magic vehicle, none of the motion sickness. Either way taking a breather if we need to shouldn't be a problem."

    Arcadia managed to finish the last bites of her breakfast sandwich, and followed it with the last of her juice. She smiled briefly over at Edward, wondering if she had grown fully out of her own shyness or had just grown familiar enough with most of her surroundings in Magnolia that it just didn't show as much. Glancing back to her empty plate, the idea of even another bite sounded impossible. "I think I'm super full too now. I'd be happy to help clean up before we go. It's the least I can do."

    The small blonde slayer pretty much insisted she help because she did not wait for a yes or no. She rose to clear her own plate and glass. Arcadia was happy to something nice for the Luxes, and admittedly she wanted to extend this little slice of family life a bit longer. She would forever consider Fairy Tail her third family, but the nature of said family wouldn't nurture many small moments like family breakfast. Arcadia volunteered to wash the dishes. Using small portals, she could put away dishes even where it might be too high for her to reach otherwise. It was easy to imagine that this was a small taste how her life might have been minus the interference of dragons and their war.

    When the dishes were done, and so was clean, Arcadia gave any Of that welcomed it, a hug. Except Edward, she didn't want to scare him, so she bowed as she pulled her scissors out. She would how more time to them all, "Thanks again for breakfast! Ready for some shopping, Nessa and Sebby? I know a shortcut to the shops downtown."

    Arcadia smiled and snipped open a portal to downtown Magnolia with her dimensional scissors. With one last wave to the Luxes not going with her, she strolled through the portal into downtown Magnolia, her faerie green eyes zipping along all the windows of the stores lining each side of the street. The portal would not close behind them until everyone going shopping was safely through. "Where do we even start?"

    Nessa listened as Arcadia mentioned the Rune Knights, she had never actually met or worked with a Rune Knight so she didn't know what they were like personally. But she could only imagine that they aspired to do good based on their stance in society. A policing force that took down bad guys? You couldn't really get more noble than that in Nessa's eyes. Plus if Arcadia knew a member of the Rune Knights and on top of which was friends with them too, then she couldn't imagine that they were bad people. Nessa trusted Arcadia's judgement. Sebastian nodded along, "Sounds interesting, I don't often meet others of my kind. Last time I saw one was... oh yeah, during that guild meeting with Basilisk Fang...she was dreamy." Sebastian swooned, Nessa sighed.

    "Yeah but she belonged to a dark guild, plus you saw what they tried to do to us. It was lucky I was able to contain that situation. Else it could've ended in a guild war." Nessa said, she didn't think Arcadia had been a member of Fairy Tail at that point. "This was closer to when I first joined, there were negotiations of peace that...well didn't end very peacefully." She explained to the Dragon Slayer, in fact it nearly ended in one of the Basilisk Fang members poisoning them. Richard spoke up, "Still, perhaps it was for the best, would it have really been in Fairy Tail's best interest to ally with a guild as volatile as Basilisk Fang. There were classifiably dark." Nessa thought about it for a moment.

    "No, I suppose it wouldn't be ideal, Fairy Tail is perfect the way it is." She replied to her father. She turned her gaze back to Arcadia as she talked about resting backstage, "Not going to lie, It'd be pretty awesome to hang out with a princess," She admitted, meeting royalty was just another thing Nessa hadn't quite gotten to experience yet. Nessa was going to protest when Arcadia offered to clean up but it really didn't seem like she had a choice. So instead of fighting it, the family simply went about it, getting everything tidied an organised before the carnage that was breakfast had erupted. When they were done everything looked back to normal. Ness watched as Arcadia went around hugging everyone aside from Edward smiling as she did so. Edward hid when he saw this, making it quite obvious that he was too shy for such an interaction with a girl he barely knew. Arcadia being Arcadia, seemed nice enough to notice and not pressure him into one. Following this, Nessa went over to Edward and give him a squeeze, before heading over to her father and placing a kiss of his cheek.

    "I'll see you soon okay, we'll take lots of pictures to show you." She said, Richard held up his hand in a weight gesture. Disappearing for a moment, Nessa could hear him running upstairs quick, only to return moments later. He came back into the room, holding a Lacrima recorder, slightly newer than the one she had in her room. "I always considered that you might want to go to concerts like Cordelia did, so I bought this in advance, take it. So you can relive the fun you have in the future." Nessa looked at him before her face lit up in surprise. She stepped forward and gave him a big squeeze. "Thanks Dad." She said happily, before taking the Lacrima Recorder. She turned to Arcadia, moving over to the clothes rack, she grabbed her white satchel that had her purse and valuables in. She opened it up and carefully tucked the Lacrima Recorder inside of it. "Okay ready to go!" She said, Sebastian nodded in unison, he didn't really need to bring anything but himself anyway. Nessa waved goodbye before stepping through the portal that Arcadia made, reappearing in the streets of Fiore, Sebastian quickly followed suit. Nessa heard Arcadia's question and grinned, "Well there's 'Fiorian 21', 'The Beauty Barn' or 'Destination Dress.' There are a few more high-end ones we can check out too." She suggested, putting her retail knowledge to work, after all, shopping was her favourite pastime.

    Sparkling, faerie green eyes darted up and down avenue, searching out and assessing each store Nessa named. If all this shopping goodness was just the one street, Arcadia had tip wonder what else could be found on downtown's other streets. Granted, this was the main thoroughfare, so it probably had most of the big name stores and glitzier boutiques. Who knew what hidden gem of stores lay in waiting along one of the cross streets or even down one of the less traveled avenues a block or two away.

    Arcadia paused, folding her arms thoughtfully. She played the names over in her head, gazing again over each window display. It was more serious thought than was necessary for simply deciding which store to visit first. The barefoot slayer felt a little silly having indecision already. Would it only get worse with more choices inside the stores?

    She narrowed her choices down to two, based on how cool she thought the store name was and of she could imagine herself at the festival in anything that was distillate in the store front window. For someone who counted becoming queen of all Earthland media, or at least all Fiore media, among her current life goals, she had a surprising lack of familiarity with these stores and the styles they were most known for. "For starters, I have it narrowed it down to 'Fiorian 21' or 'Destination Dress'. I definitely think we're gonna need to hit them all. Oh!. I forgot to mention this, but this is prolly the closest I'll get to a graduation party. I dunno if I've said anything about recent hiccups I've had with my residency status in Fiore."

    "I dunno who I pissed off, but apparently someone took a second look at the paperwork for my passport, and decided a citizen of a defunct kingdom is not a valid input for a visa or passport. Being a citizen of Dragnof means I technically don't have a citizenship they recognize, so to stay in Fiore and keep my passport I havta work to become citizen of Fiore. Going to school or passing the equivalency exam is part of that. No time for school, so I took the exam. Hella sweetly, I passed!"

    "Long story short, extra reason to celebrate this weekend. All that's left is to collect a couple affidavits and letters of character reference from anyone at FairyTail and any of my more well connected friends then I can take the citizenship test. Pass that and I'll be set. I can worry about all that later. Remind me to ask for one of those letters after this weekend, if ya don't mind writing and signing one for me."


    Arcadia was stalling for time while she made up her mind, as much as she was sharing a little bit of business before she forgot. The barefoot slayer smiled, "Okay, I think I wanna head over to 'Fiorian 21' first. But for sure, I totes wanna still wander through all the stores no matter in which one our clothes for the festival find us."

    She looked both ways, making sure the street was free of oncoming vehicles. Soon as it was clear, the young slayer hurried across. Arcadia slowed down, taking more of s strolling pace to the corner the entrance to 'Fiorian 21' was on. It was a beautiful morning after all, and she was getting an idea of what she wanted to look for with a little window shopping. "Ooo! I love that skirt, but these capris with that top is hella cute. Hmm, so are those sandals. Normally, I hate wearing any shoes or sandals. They interfere with some of my magic. But I don't expect to be climbing any walls, and maybe it'd be better if I didn't feel every footstep around me in a crowded area."

    Feeling inspired, she finally slipped through the front doors of 'Fiorian 21'. Arcadia's faerie green gaze widened in wonder at all the trendy clothing that filled the store.  It would have been easy to get lost in the possibilities, but her gaze picked out a skirt not unlike the one she saw in the window outside. The barefoot slayer raced  over to the left side of the store. The skirt in the window had been a vivid red, this one was the same style but a dull earth tone. Not quite a color she was hoping for, so she kept looking. That's when she spotted a blue bohemian dress that spoke to her  more than the skirt did just a few racks over. ”What do you think of this one, big sis?”

    After leaving her home to head out into the streets of Fiore, Nessa could help but bubble with excitement as the prospect of the days ahead. It had been far too long since she had gotten to strol around the streets of fiore and do some casual shopping with one of her closest friends. It almost seemed a little surreal, but then here she was walking alongside Arcadia and Sebastian looked through th windows of various shops in order to decide where to peruse first. This of course was a very important decision, going to a concert and having a great time was guaranteed regardless. But there was something exhilirating about getting all dolled up, and feeling good about the way you looked. Nessa rarely got to experiment and review the latest trends, it seemed she was always wearing her battle gear. Which albeit cute, and convenient, was always the same. It was exciting to look for something different, perhaps with a little more colour.

    She turned looked look at Arcadia as she decided on what stores she wanted to try. Nessa smiled, she liked that way of thinking, squeezing in about as much stores as they could seemed like the best plan they could go with. Especially if they were going to aspire for something fabulous to wear. Nessa expression momentarily changed to concern as Arcadia began to tell the story about how she had recently been revoked of Fiorian Citezenship. "That's ridiculous!" She exclaimed in a tone that reflected her annoyance. Arcadia was well known in this area, being a Fairy Tail Ace came with it's merits, and popularity. So for someone to attempt to have her removed seemed ridiculous. Was she targeted because of her status? Nessa wondered. It was strange, as far as she was aware, Fairy Tails relationship with the higher up was okay now. It hadn't always been, not with that stuff that happened with Lucie all those years bad, resulting in Fairy Tail going dark for a little while. But surely the dust had settled since then, Fairy Tail hadn't had any run ins for a while. At least not that she was aware of.

    As Arcadia explained that she had taken an exam and passed, Nessa's expression shifted once more. She beamed at her best friend, "Oh that's amazing, Congratulations Arca! I'm so happy for you, man, yeah we'll definately be celebrating that. Make this a big hurrah for your graduation!" She replied perkily, pleased to know that her friend's citizenship had at least been saved. "Congratulations Arcadia," Sebastian added, "You humans have such weird systems, no one ever questions my citizenship," He said in a bemused tone. Nessa grinned, "Probably because you're registered as a pet." Nessa explained, earning a loud  "WHAT!" From the little grey exceed, she grinned, but ignored his question. Instead, she would carry on listening to Arcadia as she continued about what was required next of her.

    Nessa nodded at Arcadia's request, "Of course, I'll get one written out when we get back after the concert. I'll be sure to tell them in detail how awesome you are, I'm sure some of the others in the guild will be happy to write one too" Nessa said, making a mental note. She couldn't imagine it would be difficult, Nessa could easily talk for pages about how amazing Arcadia was. She hoped her word would matter, but then again, she was a Wizard Saint of Purity now, that had to count for something right? Nessa hadn't really enforced her status by any means, she was recognised a lot more these days, and was known for her attempt to aid the community. She had even recieved an interview for the Sorcerer's Magazine, which was a little embarrassing in her opinion. She hadn't joined Fairy Tail for this purpose, she just really wanted to help people.

    Nessa followed Arcadia as she led the way to Fiorian 21 first, grinning as the girl began to babble excitedly about the clothes. "Yeah for stylish shoes you can't beat heels, but the only issue is how much they hurt your feet after a while. I can imagine we're going to be doing a lot of running around and dancing this weekend. It might be ideal to pack stylish back ups to swap into when our feet get tired. If need be, I can leave them in Valhalla and pull them through the portal when we need them!" Nessa suggested excitedly, "That is unless we find something that combines comfort and style, which would be a real treasure!" She said eagerly, as she walked through the shop's entrance. Her eyes scanned the racks, her mind going into overdrive as she carefully checked out each piece of clothing. Too short, Wrong colour, Poor fit, too lacy, too much fabric... She thought as she skimmed through the aisles. She heard Arcadia's question and glanced over, "Oooh that's cute, very summery." She answered. Before returning her gaza to the clothes, she moved around an aisle. Scooping up a basket, as she walked she soon began scooping articles of clothing into the basket. She was piling them up one by one, to build up a collection to try on in the changing rooms. It wasn't long before her basket was stuffed to the brim.

    Arcadia smiled, her heart setting on the symmetry blue dress once her big sister seemed to like it too. Watching Nessa pile a small collection to try on, the barefoot slayer thought maybe she decided too fast. She had already entertained the idea of adding to her wardrobe, just during breakfast. If she really went shopping for more than one outfit, deciding which to wear for the festival could wait.

    She got her own basket, and began building a pile of anything she thought limited remotely cute. More critical analysis of how much she really liked any of the articles of clothing she was collecting could also wait, making her pile maybe more haphazard than big sister's. Once she got started, her faerie green gaze just kept picking out something else a couple racks over to add to her basket.

    The barefoot slayer smiled over to Nessa and Sebby, "Thanks by the way. I dunno why they focused on me so suddenly, except maybe making a name for myself maybe brought my case to someone's attention. Guess it's good to get this stuff straightened out. Never woulda dreamed it necessary on my own. It does mean I will officially exist again! All the other records that document my birth and stuff are buried somewhere in those ruins of Dragnof, probably as a pile dust by now. That makes me feel so old, yet I'm still the little sister. I dunno if I'm graduating kinda early or just very, very, very late."

    Arcadia paused a moment and snorted quietly at the irony, before moving on to other thoughts. She continued to gather clothing to potentially try on, though she was getting more selective finally. The growing heft of her basket making her more judicious.

    Looking over some shoes, she continued, "Some of these are kinda cute, but maybe the next store will have better selection. I'm just not seeing as much of that here shoe or sandal-wise as I've found in clothes." Arcadia switched which arm she had her basket hanging from to let the first arm rest. Giving a couple sandals and shoes a closer second look, she picked a pair of each to try. At the very least, she would get a better idea of what her potential outfits might look when complete.

    The barefoot, blonde slayer crinkled her nose in thought. She now had more than enough to choose a few different outfits from, but the summery blue dress was still her leading contender for the festival. Time to start narrowing down her options to what she really wanted. Trouble was she wanted to ask how things were going with her and Aven. Arcadia had quietly been rooting for them. She had heard of Marcus's supposed return, and knew that might complicate things. Or maybe it wouldn't.

    It could be something Nessa wouldn't want to talk about of things did get get too complicated. Arcadia figured the most polite way to find out would be to volunteer similar news that she has been dying to tell anyway. She would do so while sorting through which dresses, tops, skirts and pants were worth trying on and which had only been cute on the spur of the moment.

    She started by holding up two dresses, one lacey soft pink, the other canary yellow printed with a small white floral pattern. The pink lacey one had a texture she loved, but it would seemed a little much. The yellow floral dress was not her instant favorite. Moving around with it though, it quickly grew on her. She sorted the yellow floral into the pile with the blue summer dress she already picked out. That was going to be her definitely buying pile. The pink lacey dress went into what she would be her try it on before final decision pile. While considering a soft blue blouse that was next on top of her basket, Arcadia gently patted the softly glowing crystal rose tucked behind her left ear. "It still feels weird to say it out loud. It's fun to say though!. I have a boyfriend! Rui. I mean, Ruvel Mizune of the West Fiore Trading Company. l dunno how we ended up in Sorcerer's Magazine, you and Sebby are literally the first people besides ourselves I've told. Unless you count the people in the chocolate company our the other chocolate store around the corner. Had to be."

    "We... I didn't know how I felt until we did that job together. That's the first time there felt looks there might be something to that legend behind this rose he gave me. One of Rui's summoned friends told me it symbolized divine blessing on two people's love. There must be something to it though, I've had this rose for months now, and it hasn't wilted at all. Once or twice, like in Midi, one of those Christmas tree things sapped me of all my magic power. This crystal rose... It... It lent me some of its magic power and that probably saved my life."

    "Kinda puts a bunch weird pressure on everything, knowing some divine beings somewhere has an interest in my love life. If I don't concentrate too much on that, and forget everything but how Rui makes me feel... How happy I feel when he's around... That's the only way I know I'm not letting those gods down... Yet."


    As she began to sort through more of her pile, she added a third sorting pile for clothes she decided weren't worth trying on. Even with all day to shop, some time had to be saved if they really were going to as many stores as possible. She hit a rhythm of holding an article of clothing up just long enough to decide if it made the cut. Arcadia also realized she had stated rambling.

    At least, she had gone on long enough to pivot to her curiosities. "What about you and Aven? Or has that Marcus guy's supposed return complicated things? Is he even real? I've never even seen him that I'm aware of."

    Nessa laughed at Arcadia comment about graduating very late. She didn't actually know how old the girl really was. Nessa just assumed she was around fourteen from the way she looked.  "It's highly likely that becoming an Ace of Fairy Tail is what drew the attention to you. Fairy Tail has been around for a long time now, and we don't have the best history with the authorities. It's such a shame, I thought we'd be passed such pettiness at this point. Oh well, least it's settled now." She said to the younger girl. It really was strange, but even Nessa noticed the attention she was getting more of now as a mage. To think six months ago, no one outside of Fiore knew who she was. But even in Bellum, during that job with Markus, when she had informed Victoria who she was, even she seem to know who she was. Nessa nodded in agreement with Arcadia's comment on shoes, moving on to look through the racks.

    "Oh I like this, what do you think?" She said, pointing to a mannequin wearing a full set. It was made up of a dress, with a pastel pink strip top half that made up the bust and sleeves, slightly over the shoulder. The bottom half of the dress, beginning just under the bust, almost corset-like in design, it was made up of little gold buckles, and then spread out into a frilly black skirt. The mannequin word black tights, black gloves and blue heels with black straps. "I'd probably swap out the blue shoes for some black boots though." It was pretty different from what she'd normally get to wear. "I'm gonna try it on." She said, reaching for the rack next to it, grabbing the assorted pieces. Before continuing around the store. As Arcadia spoke again, Nessa's head whipped around so sharply she nearly gave herself whiplash upon hearing the 'B' word coming from Arcadia's mouth. She had to stop herself from dropping the basket, as her jaw dropped. She didn't attempt to hide her surprise in the slightest. As her eyes widened and her face broke into an eager smile. Her voice could be heard from outside the shop as she suddenly squealed loudly.

    "WHAT!?!" She rushed over to the younger girl, listening to her every word as she explained about her boyfriend. "Wait, Wait, Ruvel of the West Fiore Trading Company. AS IN THE CEO??" Nessa screeched, she had heard of him through her connections in the alliance. Her face split into a smile. "Oh my goodness Arcadia that's so cute, I'm happy for you! Oh boy, I can't wait to meet him. He better treat you nice!" She nattered on happily. She was genuinely excited for her younger friend's newfound romance. It was cute and if anyone deserved to be happy it was Arcadia. Nessa just hoped that this Rui was a nice guy; if he hurt her best friend. Nessa would certainly have something to say about it.. "So like how long have you known each other, and how did he ask you out? Or wait.. did you ask him? I gotta know the details!"

    As Arcadia began to ask her about Aven, Nessa's smile faltered slightly. "Aven and I? We're just...friends." She said, although her eyes grew sad. There was something else, something she hadn't been able to share with anyone. The only person who knew how close Nessa and Aven were, was Arcadia. But things hadn't gotten complicated. The Starlight Maiden couldn't keep it in anymore. She needed to talk to someone, to get a second opinion. "Arca... I found out something and I don't know what to do. Aven wrote me a poem, and he kinda dropped it without realising... I think it means he loves me. I haven't told him about it yet, I have no idea what to say!" She said, her voice was sad. She really had left this so long, she really didn't know how to address it at this point. Would he be angry? Probably. She was scared, she would lose one of her best friends. As the girl mentioned Markus, her cheeks would flush pink. Sebastian snorted, Moving over to Arcadia, he climbed onto a dress rack. Moving up the clothes, before leaping out and landing on Arcadia's shoulder. "He's real alright. I actually met him this time around, he's not bad. Very edgy though, got a major 'bad boy' vibe going on. No wonder she's smitten." Nessa blushed furiously, shaking her head vigorously.

    "I'm NOT smitten...I'm just... glad he's back is all." She said defensively. Her mind flickered to the kiss they shared in Bellum, even if it had just been to deceive Victoria, it had been nice. It had been playing on her mind often, she had even dreamed about it a few times. "Besides, Markus and I agreed that we would be just friends. It's better this way, seeing as he can't love anyone anyway. Plus I have so much responsibility these days, I don't have time to be dating..." She would ramble on, Sebastian nudged Arcadia's cheek.

    "What you reckon Arca, are you buying this? She went on a job with him recently, and she won't tell us what happened. But whenever you bring it up, she smiles like all goofy like an idiot, there it is right now! Don't tell me that's not suspicious!" He said pointing to Nessa's face, she was indeed grinning, she raised her hand to cover her face. Damnit... She couldn't help it, whenever she thought about the moment they shared, she ended up grinning like an idiot. It was embarrassing at this point. Turning away, "It's nothing, we just did a really good job is all!" She argued. She hurried towards the changing room, "Anyways let's not dilly dally, we have clothes to try on." She said, grabbing a number and heading into one of the stalls to try on what she had gathered. Her face still a furious shade of pink.

    Arcadia was glad to have that whole citizenship and high school thing all our of the way. They may have been matters she had barely given any thought to, if any, but it was a bigger relief than she would have guessed.

    The barefoot slayer's sorting piles grew, though it was mostly the lot it back like that was growing. Many of the clothes she had picked out did not hold up cute as they seemed first glance. She turned her faerie green gaze to the ensemble displayed on the mannequin Nessa had pointed out. Arcadia smiled, "Sweet. Them threads're totes legit. Even if you don't wear them to the festival, you should def snag those anyway."

    She glanced bask to her ever growing discard pile, adding "But maybe it'll seem different after tryin'em on. Mosta mine ain't half as hyphy as I thought — yadada?"

    Arcadia would have a turn to blush first, she nodded in confirmation, ”Heh...uh yeah. That's Rui, CEO of Weftek. I mean WFTC. I think it's faster to pronounce it Weftek than to say the letters. Anyway I woulda thought you met him before I did. We met while I was under that de-aging curse. Way back at the tri-guild beach festival I heard there were a couple members of Weftek that were suffering the same thing, so I went back to Talgalen to see anything they have found in researching their own cures. Rui happened to be one of them.”

    “That never really panned out, because they all turned back for different reasons. And Rui was still trying to figure out why he hadn't turned back, so that didn't really turn out. Maybe because he felt bad that I came all that way for nothing, Rui invited me to the Crystal Moon Blossom Festival. With nothing else to do, I decided to stay.”

    “The thing is, Rui and I had to talk though one of his summoned spirits to be out translator. Still takes some getting used to talking in my head instead of out loud. Anyway we danced and Rui gave me one of the crystal roses that the festival is named after. Rui's spirit told me the legend behind the roses, and how if they survive long after being picked, than it is said to be a sign of divinely blessed love. And after going all the way to Midi during that Santa crisis and happening to meet his sister there... and Valentine's, that legend is feeling hella real. That's both hella hyphy and a hellla lotta pressure at the same time. I never dreamed gods would care if I had a boyfriend.”



    The barefoot slayer continued to blush softly, ”If it really is divinely blessed I really hope I don't find some way to screw it all up. Or maybe it means it was meant to be, and I couldn't screw things up if I tried? I really dunno.” As she finished up sorting her initial choices down to about five potential outfits, she also listened to Nessa's adventures around love. She paused a moment an smiled, ”So its true. Not saying I saw it, but there rumors among Fairy Tail's bar staff at leasts. Can't always trust gossip though. Wish I knew what I'd say. But be extra careful. I dun wanna see any of my third family get hurt. Maybe you can wait until you do know what to say. ”

    Gathering up her three new dresses, a skirt and two blouses along with a pair of sandals and another pair of shoes, she was ready to go try her choices on. Arcadia almost never wore shoes, but the rare formal occasion called for them. She giggled to Sebastian, ”I don't now if I'm buying it either, Sebby. Fact, it kinda sounds like something that needs to be figured out before you know what to tell Aven. That is...unless there's nothing to figure out?”

    Arcadia then would take her turns in the changing room, coming out for a grand reveal of her chosen new clothes. She would cheer when she got to see Nessa in her new clothes!

    Upon hearing Arcadia's compliment on the outfit she chose, Nessa nodded happily, deciding that she would definitely get the set for herself. Maybe find another occasion where she could show it off. The outfit as Arcadia put it was totes legit after all. Nessa listened keenly Arcadia confirmed that Rui was, in fact, Ruvel, the CEO of the West Fiore Trading Company. Despite Arcadia's presumption, Nessa had never met that CEO, she had met Cirven, and all of the Vice Presidents at this point. But never Ruvel, he just didn't seem to be around whenever Nessa was. Kind of like passing ships. Still the older girl couldn't help but enjoy the site of the blush that formed on her friend's face, it was just so adorable. She was pleased to see her friends like this, although she hoped that this Ruvel treated her friend right. Because if he didn't, boy would he have hell to pay, CEO or not. As the ice dragon slayer continued, Nessa hung onto every word, it was such a cute story. One that made the Starlight Maiden happy. "Oh Arcadia, that's so lovely. I'm sure if it's meant to be it'll work out, I doubt you could screw up anything," She replied, hoping to reassure her friend.

    As they moved onto the topic of Aven, Nessa cringed at the thought that the bar staff at Fairy Tail were gossiping about them. She nodded, cautious is what she was being at the moment, but her concern was being too cautious and never addressing the matter at all. As Sebastian brought up Markus to Arcadia, her reaction was to be expected.  "I care about Aven, I really do. I've never been such good friends with a guy before... but love him, I just don't know. He's handsome and charming, and any girl would be lucky to have him. But..."

    But I just can't get Markus out of my head.

    The thought flickered across her mind, causing the girl to flush once more. She sighed dejectedly,"I guess I need to figure out where my heads really out, then I can sit Aven down and at least tell him I found the poem. Whatever happens after that, I too hope no one ends up hurt." And she sincerely did, but a part of her doubted that would be the case. As they moved into the dressing rooms, Nessa was able to distract herself from the act of dressing up. An enjoyable feat, as always, back and forth the girls went. Parading their different outfits. Nessa squealed whenever Arcadia wore something especially cute, enjoying her friend and advising her here and there with certain features of each outfit. As Nessa got back into her own clothes, she had decided she would wear the black and cream set on the mannequin for the concert. It was cute, without being too risque. She did, however, pick up a few pieces for her own personal preference too. Soon, she lugged all the shopping to the til, paying her for collection.

    Then with a satisfied grin, she turned to Arcadia. "So, what shall we do next? More shopping? Beauty Salon?" She asked, reeling off some choices to see what her friend was in the mood for. "Ugh Salon, miss me with that, I'd be down for some fish" Sebastian remarked, earning an eye roll from Nessa, they had just had breakfast not long ago. Boy, this cat could eat!

    Arcadia loved the new outfit Nessa had chosen. It was totes legit indeed. The barefoot slayer had quite a few choices of her own she felt were totes legit too. It would be difficult winnowing them down.

    The barefoot slayer smiled, it did her heart good to hear her best friend's support and encouragement. Even knowing her still blooming love with Rui was divinely blessed, Arcadia was sure if there was ever anyone who could mess that up, she could. "Thanks. You're right. Worrying about messing up to much is prolly one of the few ways to mess that up."

    Putting these worries out of mind for now, she began to hum a tune softly, occasionally mumbling some of the words. The thing is she did not even remember where she heard it. She sang a little too herself as she glanced back over some outfit choices she was considering. o/' Nakitaku naru youna moonlight. Denwa mo dekinai midnight. o/'

    The song dropped into the background of her mind after shifting this topic to Aven. Her faerie green gaze glanced to Sebby to see if the Exceed had any further comment or insight to offer. Not seeing any sign of any extra info to be divulged, she listened intently as Nessa explained her conundrum. She did not envy her big sister in this. So many possible pitfalls on any side. She frowned in thought, "You already know I don't trust bad boy types when it comes to... matters of the heart. Not that they're all alike. Just because it happened to me in another life back in Dragnof, doesn't mean it will for sure happen to you now. I just don't want to see my big sister get hurt. That said, as much as I don't want to see Aven get hurt either, I also trust your heart will know what and who you will be happiest with in the long run. So I'm behind you whichever way your heart chooses."

    As they moved to the dressing rooms to try on alternately show off their various chosen outfits, Arcadia took note which ones Nessa liked most. She did not hold back in her cheers and compliments when Nessa was modeling. In fact it was exactly what didn't draw immediate comment from her big sister that helped Arcadia narrow down her choices to three. The she thought were most totes legit, of course. Trouble was they all felt equally legit, and she did mean to expand her wardrobe as part this pre-festival shopping spree. It was down to the first blue dress she saw, the dark floral print dress and the blouse and skirt combo. They would all be going home with her, but the dark floral print won out as her choice for the festival.

    Arcadia gathered her chosen clothes and accessories to bring to the front and buy. Stepping away with her 'Fiorian 21' shopping bag hooked over a forearm, she considered the options Nessa suggested. With what she just bought, Arcadia was feeling pretty happy clothing wise. A little more browsing would not hurt a thing though. "I vote beauty salon! With maybe some window shopping along the way. If we just happen see something too cute to live without.. Then we'll just havta pick that up along the way too!"

    The slayer turned a devilish grin to Sebastian as they started on their way again. "And don't worry, Sebby! I'll tell the salon people I'm your official groomer. That way I can make sure they give you a fish while your being pampered... and use only the sparkliest of ribbons."

    Laughing, she let the song in her head from before slip back out. She half hummed and half sung it as they walked. o/' Nakitaku naru youna moonlight. Denwa mo dekinai midnight. Datte junjo doushiyou. HAATO wa mangekyou. o/'

    No life can escape being blown about, By the winds of change and chance,
    And though you never know all the steps, You must learn to join the dance
    Nessa Cordelia Lux





    Nessa smiled at her younger friends words of advice about Aven, for a girl so young, Arcadia really had a lot of wisdom on her shoulders. It was one of the reasons Nessa got on with her so easily, they very much just clicked. "Thanks Arca, you're such a great friend!" She replied it was reassuring to know that however it all panned at Arcadia would be there to talk to at the end of it all. Nessa didn't have a lot of friends she could go to about such matters these days, it was a long time coming but for Nessa, it was nice to finally trust herself to be friends with people again, to trust others to be genuine with her.

    As they finished their shopping, Nessa approved strongly of her friend's outfit choices, satisfied that they had done well, Nessa was pleased when Arcadia agreed to attend the salon with her. Nessa was very much in a mood for pampering after that, Sebastian grumbled at first but at Arcadia's comment he quickly perked up. "You're one of the good ones, you know that." He purred happily, clearly pleased that Arcadia was ensuring he got his fish. Nessa wondered if hearing that he was getting fish meant he had skimmed over the part about sparkly ribbons, or if in actually, he really didn't mind playing dress-up anymore.

    Striding down the roads once more, Nessa would casually peruse the windows of that she passed by. Occasionally 'ooo-ing' and 'aah-ing' over certain things that stuck out to her. She loved doing this, it was kind of therapeutic, seeing what the world had to offer. There was no pressure for her to get anything either, so she could just enjoy. Compared to the laborious work that was being an ace and all the stresses she'd endured lately, this was a welcome change of pace. Finally, she stepped up the salon, practically skipping inside. The receptionist beamed at this politely, "Hello Ladies, how can I help you?" She asked in a friendly tone.

    "Hello there, okay so, I'd like the deluxe pamper package displayed in the window please?": She asked, having spotted that on her way in, it seemed perfect for all her preparation needs; wash, cut and blowdry for hair, then a facial, manicure and pedicure. "Certainly Miss, please take a seat and we'll call you over shortly, would you like something to drink whilst you wait, tea or coffee?" Nessa short Arcadia an excited grin, this was one of the nicer salons on the street, but it was definitely worth it to up the glam of the experience. She looked back at the receptions,  "I'll have a tea please, milk, two sugars."

    She took a seat in the plush pink sofa of the waiting area, although it didn't take long for one of the girls to saunter over with a tea and gather her for her haircut. She climbed into the chair, her tea placed on a side table as the chair was reclined. A mobile sink brought over and positioned under the back of Nessa's head so the hairdresser could wash and treat her hair. As soon as the hot water his her scalp, and the stylist began massaging shampoo into her scalp. Nessa's eyes closed shut in bliss,  "Oh man, I really needed this!" She said in a relaxed voice, there was just something about getting a head massage whilst someone washed your hair that seemed to melt away her stress. She was quickly reminded why she loved going to the salon so much when she was younger.
