Nessa remained quiet as she listened to Ilda's answers. Her purpose was understandable enough, it sounded like the girl wanted somewhere to belong. Nessa couldn't empathise with that, a few years before joining Fairy Tail. She too had felt completely lost and unsure of what to do with her self, a personal conflict between her and her ex had resulted in all of her friends had abandoning her. She had lost all will to do anything, until something changed. She saw a scuffle in a street, a vagrant was threatening the people in the market for jewels, threatening to blast them with his magic. Nessa was wanted to run in, but she had her little cousin with her. She couldn't risk getting into danger when he was there, on top of which that was a point in her life she had no control over her magic whatsoever. She had barely used it more than a handful of times.
Which is why she felt so inspired when the Fairy Tail mages turned out, handling the situations with ease. She watched as they easy beat the vagrant, restrained him and escorted him away without any consequence to the public. From then on she had wanted to be a mage, she had gone home, and asked her family to train her. It was the reason she was here now, the reason she had come so far. Fairy Tail wasn't just a place to work, it was a way of life. The last sentence the girl said struck a cord with her, 'monster'. Nessa sipped her coffee, she knew that feeling too. She was still dwelling with the darkness inside of her, this thing that seemed to grow in strength alongside her. She would hope to face it one day but, she needed to figure out how. Who could she go to? Besides, she couldn't deal with anything so grand until she got Mythal back.
The girl continued to answer Nessa's latter questions, the ones important for judging whether she was worth joining. Ilda confirmed she would not intentionally harm her guild members, which is why she used her gloves as a preventative measure of containing herself. When she finished Nessa nodded, lowering her coffee to the table. "I appreciate your honesty."
She said, she looked around spotting a nearby wisp floating by. Which although she could see, to those without stamp would look like blobs of light. "Can you bring me the tools?"
She asked, moments later the wisp returned, carrying an old block of unidentifiable material. "Where would you like your guild mark?"
Wherever Ilda showed her where to stamp, Nessa would press the block against that area of skin. When the material pressed against the girl, Nessa would initiate the spell designed to mark them. Tracing the markings around the block for the imprinting, they would glow with light, a circle would light up and underneath would appear the Fairy Tail symbol. After recieving the guildmark, Ilda would feel a tingling sensation from it, moving throughout her body. Just as Nessa had when she received her guild mark. The blobs of light that floated around the guild would transform into Fairies, that were fluttering around the guild helping things operate. Carrying food and handling paperwork. Nessa offered the girl a warm smile, "Welcome to Fairy Tail, I look forward to working with you Ilda."WC:
