The previous night left Zachary unable to sleep-- not until deep in the night and eventually passed out from his mind running too much. The fall of the meteorite that left a massive crater in the East Forest was still on his mind, and what was left was the odd crystal that now sat on his table. That and the mysterious woman known as Samira Nassar.
Where did he hear that name before? It was too late for him to really look it up, or even get Professor Nyx involved. For a nocturnal night owl, the spirit was often picky when to be disturbed. For now, he tried to sleep, but every so often the crystal that he now gotten from that fateful meteor shower glowed. Something pulsed within... something not of this world.
Sadly Zachary had fallen asleep, unable to sense it.
The next morning Zachary made his way right to the guild hall of Fairy Tail. Unlike most guils, Fairy Tail's guild hall was much more open and avalable to the public than Zachary knew. He didn't mind as he was able to study in relative quiet-- until the guild's mercs began to get rough and start a full guild brawl.
For the time being, he kept to the far side of the room in one of the tables. On it was the crystal he got from that night. The older members, mostly a bunch of rough housing or the other members kept to their own business, going in and out to do various requests. It was not the Fairy Tail Zachary grew up knowing, but it was beginning to grow on him. Out on the table he had a few astrological reference books and magical artifact books to help him find out what this mystery rock was. Beside him was an order of scramble eggs now semi-cold and a tall mug of orange juice.
With him was none other than his little Ruby Carbuncle. THe small transparant spirit would occasionally run across the table, sniff Zachary's eggs-- despite her inability to actually eat it-- and inspect the odd stone on the table. She seemed drawn to it, like cat to catnip as she would paw at the stone. It wouldn't budge from its size and weight.
After about an hour searching for rocks, meteorites, crystals and even lacryma, Zachary let out a defeated grown and burried his face flat into the book. "Oh you gotta be kidding me..." he sighed, "I can't find a single reference to what this thing is. Its not a lacryma, not a known one anyway. Not an artifact or even of any material known. "
He sighed as he tried to figure out what to do next. Ruby took a moment and looked at him, nudging him softly to help him in his slump.
A few of the older, rugged mercs of Fairy Tail gave a laugh at him, seeing him studying so hard. "Hey, Z-- lighten up already. You probably do more work here than most," a rough looking guy said with a tight shirt, muscles and a scar near his left eye. "Come here and a man's drink-- hic."
Zachary leered at him, bothered by the lesser impressive member of his guild. "I'm under-aged, moron... besides I rather not kill brain cells thank you... Who drinks at 10 AM in the morning?"
A few of the other guys laughed, as Zachary pushed himself up as he tried to think of a good idea how to find out what this mysterious meteorite crystal was. It was the only thing recoverable from the site. It had to be something significant.
