    Event Info:

    Somehow, someway, in some ridiculous and impossible fashion, Samira got herself lost. Yes. Lost. She had become living proof that Wizard Saints and even the Gods of Ishgar were capable of such stupidity at times. To make matters worse was that she got lost in the Cursed Lands. How one went from trying to get to one of those seasonal festivals that was in literally every city and town but instead ended up smack in the middle of some obviously not very festive and dangerous land was anyone's guess. Leave it to her to figure out how to do that without trying and still not know how it happened, preventing the knowledge and experience from being told and spread so others could attempt to accomplish this miraculous feat. It wouldn't have happened if her portal spirit was available. Or any of her flying spirits in general really. It was very rare to have them all busy at the exact same time. One could rationalize that they were celebrating their own festival, but many of her other spirits were still present. And complaining. Apparently she relied on quick travel for so long that she had forgotten how to use her own sense of direction according to them, hence taking a wrong turn.... somewhere.... a very long time ago. Walking from place to place sure was slower than she remembered, especially while wearing a yellow summer dress with heels. Not the smartest choice but she was told to dress in bright colors such as yellow and orange and that was the only outfit she had in those colors! The complaints and criticism of the spirits in her head only made her continuously sigh even more.

    While trying to find her way out of that mess of gloomy forest trees, since apparently going back the way she came was not working as well as it should have, Samira picked up on the sounds of music. The volume was low, indicating that it was a bit far away, but the fact that she could hear it brought some relief to the woman. Maybe she wasn't as stupid as she and her spirits thought! There really was one of those festivals way out there! A bit suspicious really considering the location, but it was there! Naturally, the summoner made her way towards where she heard the music. It got louder as she got closer but not by much. There was still quite a bit of distance, but there was a slight change. Festive decorations and lights were all around and even hung on the trees. There was even a sign with an arrow. Samira stopped in front of it and tilted her head curiously after reading it. It was simple and to the point, if not a little vague on certain details. "This way for festival" It didn't specify what kind, if you needed an invite, if those that followed the arrow's direction were really some sort of blood sacrifices for a random solstice god. That was a thing in some stories, wasn't it? Sacrifice some people to plan for good future harvests and safe winter and such? Eh, details. She'd follow it and see what happened. If things turned bad then that would be a major whoops to be added on for the day.

    Along the way more arrow signs were spotted and followed until the path became an obvious dirt trail that was decorated. Eventually she came to a sort of invisible barrier that prevented her from moving on. Another sign that pointed to a trough filled with floating apples and water. Above that was another sign that said "Bobbing for Apples." Then another below that with the rules. Samira cringed inside. She was supposed to play that game? Her hair was not prepared to enter a trough filled with water. Her face wasn't either really. Pass. Apple bobbing was not her type of game.

    "I'll do it!" Shouted one of the spirit's in Samira's collection, having summoned herself without prompt. Before Samira could react, water splashed from the trough and onto her clothes as the spirit pretty much jumped into the trough to get apples.

    "That" Samira began to say, trying to hold in the annoyance she felt from the new situation and now partially wet clothes, "is not how you play that game."

    "But I got the apples!" Serqet took a bite from one of them and began to chew and even talk with her mouth full. "And they're delicious!"

    'Please let those be poisonous apples. Please.'
    'We are never that lucky.'
    'Hey guys, don't be so mean. Who else are we going to have to do all the dumb stuff if she dies from eating a poisonous apple? Do any of you want to play that game?'

    The response was a unanimous no. Quite frankly, none of them could imagine themselves bobbing for apples. They didn't enjoy looking that ridiculous, or even feeling that way either.

    While trying to settle the matter of the first obstacle game, Samira had neglected to read the other sign that was there. It was a warning about certain elementals, sprites, and even something much more powerful being in the surrounding area and that it was very possible to run into them along the way of the path. Because those that set up that particular festival were super special awesome they even made it to where clearing some of them out would also remove the barrier. It made those silly games optional! Like the current one! Another thing she neglected to realize or predict was that she would not be alone in this grand adventure of all adventures. Things were just getting started.

    -In the Cursed Lands-

    Wearing her familiar green-and-gold outfit with Argent Gloves and backpack, Leona also carried her Silver Longsword because the Cursed Lands were teeming with zombies, werewolves, spirits, and other hostile entities who did not take kindly to the living in their territory. Leona had been here before on several jobs, so she was not as daunted as a first-time traveler to the region would be. The Wizard Saint of Courage also carried a Silver Longsword and potent magic, so she was ready for anything... well, almost anything. She had a weapon, water, food, everything but that most basic of items, a map.

    It took awhile before Leona realized that she was completely and utterly lost. The blonde felt really dumb and wondered where she had made the wrong turn that had led her to this point. The wind blew through her hair and rustled it as she looked around and found something very strange in the area. She saw what looked like a carnival. A CARNIVAL.

    There were festive and appropriately colored lights that were gold, yellow, and other colors befitting the occasion. There was also the sound of music floating in the distance... accordions or organs seemed to form a large part of the instrument choice for the music. Those were not her first choices, but she was a mage, not a music critic, so she followed the sound of music and eventually spotted a simple and hastily painted wooden sign hanging on a tree.

    "THIS WAY TO CARNIVAL" It read in crooked letters that looked like a child had hurriedly painted them on with black paint. Below the text was a thin arrow pointing to the right. Leona stopped to think about the situation for a moment.

    This whole setup looked more than a little sketchy. It looked like something that one would see in a children's cartoon or comic book. Should Leona proceed with this, especially without backup? The answer was no.

    "O FABLED HARPIES, O SISTERS THREE! LEND YOUR STRENGTH UNTO ME!" Leona raised her hands in the air and recited a familiar chant. Moments later her harpy sisters arrived to keep the blonde company.

    "Hey girl, lost again?" Sylvia asked. Leona frowned.

    "I'll take that as a yes." Sylvia the orange-haired harpy commented.

    "Like, really? I thought you'd learn the lay of the Cursed Lands by now! You're such a blonde, Leona!" Daphne the black-haired harpy snarked. Leona was tired, lost, and more than a little hungry. She was not in the mood for Daphne's sarcasm and clenched her right fist.

    "Hey, what's that power signature I'm feeling?" Sandy the brunette asked, diverting Leona's attention from Daphne's attitude. Leona reached out and felt a rather powerful magic, one far stronger than her own. There was only one mage in existence who was that powerful, but the blonde was not sure that it was not a trap meant to lure in lost mages to their deaths.

    "I don't know, but let's check it out." Leona said to her harpies before walking on ahead of them. The trio flew dutifully above her to watch for danger. Leona kept going until she found a crude but serviceable dirt trail and walked to its end, which was rather soon thanks to some invisible barrier that prevented her or her harpies from passing. The blonde frowned.

    "Like, really? An invisible barrier? C'mon!" Daphne snarked. Leona huffed and looked around. Another crudely painted sign pointed towards a "Bobbing For Apples" game that was conveniently stationed nearby. Another sign laid out the rules of the game for potential players.

    "Bobbing For Apples, huh?" Sylvia asked. Leona frowned again. The last time she had been around any water of appreciable depth she had nearly drowned.

    Leona read the sign below the rules sign and saw that she could either bob for apples or she could fight spirits that were empowered by the change in season. Since she was not spoiling for a fight, Leona decided to bob for apples. She hoped that she would not regret this.

    Leona got down on all fours, then slowly leaned down into the metal trough and tried to grab an apple stem with her teeth. She heard snickering from behind her and was just about to grab an apple when she felt her hands slip and she fell over face-first into the water. The panicking blonde flailed about for a moment, then calmed down just enough to right herself and pulled her head out of the water. Her head and chest were soaked and Daphne was laughing at her.

    "Um... I don't think that's how it's done, Leona." Sandy diplomatically commented while Sylvia tried to get Daphne to stop laughing before their mistress lobbed an apple at them. Leona ignored it and went down again, focusing hard and eventually grabbing an apple by the stem with her teeth. She raised her head and stood up in triumph.

    "Um... congratulations?" Sylvia offered diplomatically. Daphne continued to laugh. Leona was sorely tempted to throw the apple at Daphne's smug face, especially after the raven-haired harpy made a crude remark.

    "This isn't a wet t-shirt contest, Leona. This is a family-friendly event." Daphne snarked. Leona was about to hit the ceiling when she spotted the source of the magic signature. The blonde took one look and her mouth went dry.

    It was Samira Nassar herself!

    "Oh great." Leona muttered, trying to adjust the soaked fabric of her top. She was an apple's throw away from a living legend of the magic world and she was looking like this. The carnival could only get better from here.

    Notes :



    Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right?


    There was many reasons why the blonde haired youth was glad he couldn't count and couldn't get angry or irritated, because if he could do either he would likely get bothered at just how often he found himself within the cursed lands of late. He was starting to swear if it wasn't one thing it was another, and normally it was that accursed haunted theme park, if he knew no better he could swear that it was scentient and wanted him to remain. He was unsure as to why he kept being able to leave when it was clear that it had the abilitie to keep spirits stored within it, perhaps it was because of his contract with Oykai, Shindara and Amuul but he had no real way of knowing without asking them. Thing was he had no idea if they would answer his question or if they did that they would answer him truthfully. Regardless of the reason he had entered and left the hellish place several times and he had no doubt that he would hear its siren call again. He couldn't bare being in there at all, he felt so useless, he watched as those who died within it go through their deaths over and over again in an endless cycle. At current he was greatful that he had lost his sense of sight however it only made his already acute hearing that much sharper, which in that place was a curse all its own.

    He had left the company awhile ago doubting himself as a leader, how could he protect those who he was suppose to if he couldn't even protect himself. He found himself wandering in the hopes for answer and ways to adapt to his current condition, the twins kept him up to date with what Oykai was doing. As much as he appreciated it, he knew that nothing would come of it. Demi, the woman he had trusted for as long as he had known her had betrayed him, he didn't know all the details but he knew she tried to kill him and that his death was interupted thanks to the his summons. Thing was he knew that Oykai's efforts were in vain already, he knew twins of his race shared everything. Strengths, weaknesses, experiences, illnesses, pain, injury, information and plans; it was like dealing with a single person but within two bodies. This normally meant if one died they both did but from the way Shindara and Amuul had been speaking of late he could tell something had changed that had put them in an area of the unknown. That was never a good sign, the twins were always confident in things so this placed the already fragile youth at ill peace.

    He had not long came out the haunted theme park he now called his own personal purgatory at this point, he had went in with one of his mentees and investigated a little more. He wanted to help but without all the information he didn't think it was going to happen, well, there was that and the inner turmoil that he was currently facing. "Ruvel, you okay or should I get one of my cousins to play guide?" The four foot two inch blue haired reaper clad in white, the hood of his top covering his eyes. "I'm fine considering the challenges I currently face""but?" Oykai added in quickly knowing that his young summoner couldn't lie but it didn't mean he couldn't ommit details "But how can I hope to help anyone living or dead if I can't defend myself from things?" he asked slowly moving foward his foot always hesitantly checking to make sure he was still on hard ground, though stopped and flinched as he was hit upside the head "Listen here you idiot..." the slightly smaller male began moving to be in front of him "How could you have known that Demiari was going to try kill you? She had been an ally up until that point. No one had any way of knowing..." he tightened his hands into balls below his sleeves, he could and should have seen it coming much sooner than he did but Demi and himself had always had respect for the privacy of the other so didn't check her thoughts or heart. "She was told to choose her path and she did and without being asked I chose mine." it hurt him because he knew eventually he would end up fighting against her and where he he would hold back in her current mind set he knew she wouldn't.

    "Just don't be to hard on yourself Ruvel, everything will work out." he tried to say to allow him to be positive but it wasn't exactly his strong point, he usually left the pep talks to his cousins. "Are we out of the cursed lands yet?" he asked the other who shook his head "Nope, if anything we're deeper." Oykai replied making Ruvel sigh. He looked up hearing music and tilted his head "Do you hear that?" he asked hoping the other did and he wasn't just crazy, it wasn't like the annoyingly repeditive music of the theme park but it was lively "Nope, sure the stress isn't getting to you Ruvel? Perhaps you should get some rest." he said concern showing in the undertone of his otherwise calm voice. "I'm not crazy Oykai, I swear I hear music in that direction" he said pointing to the south east. The summon knew that he couldn't lie and knew what the next request was going to be "Fine, but if it gets dangerous you're getting out of there." his tone showed he wasn't about to budge on this, he didn't need the lecture from his cousins or Johann to be pissed off with him because he failed to protect his little brother. Then again he was pretty sure he was already going to be on the elder males shit list when he went to visit Ruvel's ancestral home only to find there was no one there. What was done, was done and now all he could do was keep him safe.

    Taking Ruvel's hand he went in the direction his summoner hand pointed, before long he too heard the music "Damn your hearing has improved." he said only to notice that the youth turned his head away "Sorry, I know what was taken from you and I'm working to find a way to give it back bare with me Ruvel." It was uncommon for him to show such warmth in his current state but he knew right now the blonde was fragile and so needed to be handled as such. Inside the forest he walked past the signs as he seen no point, loud music usually meant a party of some sort so there was no reason to waste their time reading signs for now. Around five minutes Oykai stopped feeling a different magic and stopped Ruvel beside him as he now read the rules of a barrier that seemed to appear "Do you know what bobbing for apples is?" Oykai asked his summoner Ruvel opened his mouth to say something but closed it 'Cousin, given his upbring think of the words you just said.' Shindara sent to his cousin through the bond they held with Ruvel. "Sorry, should have thought... one of us needs to know because I don't see you liking the alternitive." Oykai said which allowed Ruvel to know that it entailed fighting and so shook his head. Out of all his summons only one was human and so perhaps they had the answer to their current riddle "Confn ekess ve o' vrak di edar." Ruvel spoke softly as he did an over grown forsythia would grow beside him revealing a four foot two boy around the age of eight years old with short messy raven black hair and bright lime green eyes, he appeared to be wearing a forest green t-shirt with a leaf on it and tan shorts, his hands seemingly dirty from playing in the mud

    "Ru?" he asked in confusion "What's bobbing for apples?" the slightly older male asked "oh! That's easy... you get a bucket of water, and put apples in it then challenge people to get the apple out by only using their teeth. Why?" he asked seemingly confused after the explination. Oykai pointed to the barrier "To get passed that someone needs to bob for apples or we need to fight, he's not in the condition to do the latter so it's simpler if we play the games perhaps." Oykai informed Sato "I can bob for apples, it's fun... I always bet big sis." he said with a grin kneeling down at where he was to bob for his apple, Oykai watched in fascination showing Ruvel through their link what he was seeing, neither of them could understand what was fun about trying to get a bit of fruit in such a method especially with the posibility of drowning to do so. After a few tries Sato came back with his rosy apple which now had a bite out of it "Done, we can go on now... I hope there's more games like these." he said seemingly excited about what was going on. Oykai took his summoner's hand once more and moved forward "If your staying stay close okay, I rather not have to be the one to break news to Yona that you got hurt for something silly." he said watching as Sato remained close but ran around them like a hyper kid dosed on sugar and caffine, before long he seen two people he hadn't expected to see "You both get lost too?" he asked before grinning at Samira "I have a present for you..." he said knowing they had a shared interest, his eyes going to Ruvel "Samira and Leona are here." he informed the youth turning to face them with a bit of help he placed his hand to his chest and bowed just a little "It's nice to... ah..." he paused because he couldn't finish the sentence it would be a lie, he couldn't see them now could he. "It's nice to bump into you both is such a desolate location." he found a way to greet before standing once more.

    Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right? (Event with Ruvel) Empty Re: Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right? (Event with Ruvel)

    Post by Samira Nassar on 27th June 2019, 12:12 am

    Samira had been a tad bit distracted trying to explain to Serqet how exactly the Apple Bobbing game really worked. Naturally there were no actual demonstrations else that would mean that she was actually playing, and she had already decided she was not going to do that. Serqet was. She was the one that volunteered and saved the summoner from having to do it herself. Or exploding her way through the barrier. Assuming that worked. She had learned quite a while ago from a long gone friend to just destroy all obstacles by way of making it all go boom if she had to. She didn't have to JUST yet. More importantly, there seemed to be quite a powerful force of magic that seemed to get nearer and nearer. The woman couldn't place it. Not her fault really and certainly it wasn't because she had no idea who the one that signature belonged to was. Samira knew well the name and face. The Silver Wolf guild master and Saint of Courage had her face on magazine's everywhere for quite a while. Probably still did. The reason Samira didn't recognize it was because it had grown exponentially since the last time she was anywhere near the other mage. Probably the day of the dueling festival of sorts where she had watched the match. But really Samira was pretty far away from where that action was. No. The last time she was really in the same room with Leona was probably back during that mysterious Halloween party. But then, who even remembered that event clearly? Certainly not Samira!

    So, what did Samira do whenever she felt the power of what was surely a monster that was native to the cursed lands coming closer and closer? Absolutely nothing. She was too busy dealing with one of the goofball spirits! The monster of doom could finish making its way over. She was here to check out the mystery festival. Not monster hunt! Maybe the monster would just make a turn somewhere and get lost. Like she did. But it was not to be. The blonde headed monster had made its appearance in the form of Leona Jarnefeldt. Well, Leona and her three harpies.

    Just as Leona had not noticed her though, Samira had also not taken notice of her either. Her spirits hadn't exactly set off the danger alarms and she was too distracted getting a certain spirit out of the apple trough she had jumped right in. It wasn't until she heard the splashing of water that she let go of the struggling spirit, turned around, and blinked. One slow moving blink as her emerald colored eyes stared at the leader of the Silver Wolf guild, who had seemed to plunge her head right into the water while flailing about. "She... certainly gets into the spirit of the game..."

    "Uh-huh." Even Serqet, who had playfully dove in herself just moments prior was also blinking and staring in disbelief.

    Naturally Samira had thought Leona had purposely gotten into that position and had not considered that it was a natural accident. Still, seeing the other woman playing the game like that made her wonder if she was actually wrong with how the game was played. Maybe you really were supposed to just dive right in there. Samira moved closer to the rules sign and read it over again before looking back at Leona with a silent and awkward stare. Nope. The Apple Bobbing rules had not changed. Well, Samira couldn't be one to judge. Maybe it was some sort of... tactic. Yes, a competitive tactic for the game. That had to be it. Leona was a competitive apple bobber! She had even given it another attempt and had succeeded! A testament to her apple bobbing skills! A skill that Samira would never have since she refused to play the game and would probably be terrible at it. She would respect this skill to the max while standing in front of a professional apple bobbing player.

    Samira had taken just a single step forward to approach Leona when she heard splashing from behind her, and then felt water begin to seep through the back of her dress. All a split second before the scorpion-tailed spirit that had been in the apple trough rushed on over while holding an issue of Sorcerer's Magazine, the one with Leona's picture on the cover, and a pen. "Hihi! I'm Serqet!" The hyperactive spirit, who's appearance and name did not exactly seem to completely match her personality, introduced herself with a huge grin while holding out the two items with hope that the Saint of Courage would take them. "Could you sign this for me? I'm a huge fan!" Serqet would look panicked for a moment before looking behind her, then turning back to face Leona and leaning forward a bit. "Just don't tell Samira about this. I think she'd get jealous," she whispered, somehow having the logic that just because she whispered that part that Samira was somehow deaf towards the previous shouting. At least, this would happen assuming Team Leona didn't send Serqet flying to the moon for randomly rushing over the way she had. What sane person, or spirit, does that?

    As for Samira, she actually wasn't jealous, but she was a bit displeased that now the back of her dress matched the front side, in that it was a bit wet from all the water splashes. This deserved an apple throw. A mental apple throw with the image of her tossing the apple and sending Serqet to the moon. Why was it mentally done? Because chances were she'd end up hitting Leona or one of the harpy ladies if she actually tried to do it in reality. If they sent Serqet flying themselves out of concern that the scorpion-tailed spirit was going to do something hostile, Samira would do nothing. It was actually a pretty common thing when dealing with that one. Serqet never learned to approach people normally instead of like some crazed hyperactive lunatic.

    All of that silliness made it to where Samira had not noticed the other three joining the grand midsummer adventure. Well that and the fact that unlike Leona or herself, they didn't really give off much magical presence. But even normal citizens were like that. It was more of the familiar voice that got Samira's attention. Her mental torture of Serqet popped like a bubble and she was brought sailing down to reality as she looked in the direction of the voice. "You are here too?" It wasn't so much her being rude about it, but it just happened to be the first thing out of her mouth from the surprise of it all. First Leona and now... uh... eh... what was his name? Samira didn't really recall introductions being made the last time they ran into each other. All she knew was that the small reaper didn't like to be called 'Deathy". As for the other two, one was a blonde teenager on the younger side. Although the gender could have gone either way. She wasn't entirely sure. The important factor was that whoever she or he was, it had to be the older sibling of the child that was with the reaper before during the invasion of the Christmas holiday oversized knick knacks. There were similar features and the reaper was with them both. Logic! Clearly it wasn't Ruvel, the God of Ishgar of Resilience. She wasn't entirely convinced that the toddler from before was actually him either. That was just impossible! Right? Ha... haha. Ha. As for the other kid that was running around, Samira did not recognize at all.

    Then there was a mention of a present. Another curious thing to hear that made her blink and her surprise and confusion grow a bit more. She never would have thought about getting a present from him. Oh boy! What could it be?! Common sense would have told her it had to be something similar or relating to air freshener. That was the only thing those two had in common the last time they met. Every spirit that currently heard the conversation and could read Samira's thought process groaned. For months they were surrounded by the scent of Winter Spice. Everywhere! How the heck she managed to get it even into their part of the celestial realm was anyone's guess, but it was darn well there! And it was all that small reaper's fault for showing it to her that day!

    "You did not have to get me anything," Samira replied, replacing her confused expression with a small smile as she took a few steps towards them to be a bit closer. "But it is nice to see you again." The location possibly could have been a bit better for most, but she wasn't going to complain about that part. The Cursed Lands was apparently a lot more of a happening place than she originally thought.

    The blonde headed youth then spoke after being told that both she and Leona were present. It seemed as if a bit of help was required for it as well. Perhaps there was something wrong with their vision? Samira frowned for a moment upon that realization and as he spoke, but she wasn't going to address it. It was probably best not to and she was sure she wasn't the only one ever to do so. "Well it may have been desolate before, but I am now having to change that description. At least for today," Samira became a bit more chipper about it all and her earlier annoyance with her spirit was long forgotten. She had not been the only one to get lost! "Are you going to try and make it to the festival too now that you all are here? I was just about to congratulate Leona and see if she wanted to tag along with me. She has incredible Apple Bobbing skills. I cannot wait to see how well she does in the others if there are more. This will apply to all of you too if you decide to come along."

    Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right? (Event with Ruvel) Empty Re: Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right? (Event with Ruvel)

    Post by Leona Jarnefeldt on 27th June 2019, 11:53 am

    This was so embarrassing that it defied description. Leona had accidentally dove into the trough and ended up getting her top half wet, including her chest. First Ruvel had shown up out of nowhere and now Samira had finally noticed the Wizard Saint of Courage plucking at the fabric of her outfit top. They probably thought that the blonde enjoyed the attention that came with that kind of thing, but they would be wrong.

    Leona was not sure what to say to either of them. She was not sure anything that she could say would dispel the awkwardness surrounding their meeting. Things were not helped by Daphne making snide comments that added fuel to the fire.

    "I think the green-haired chick's taken, Leona. Besides, she's way outta your league." Daphne commented telepathically. Leona frowned deeply. What made the dark-haired harpy think that Leona was attracted to Samira?

    Leona did not have time to say anything sarcastic back because a brown-haired warrior princess in a brown, orange, and gold-colored outfit came charging towards her and the harpies. Leona's face went pale when she realized that the oncoming warrior princess was one of Samira's summons. Samira had gotten tired of Leona's awkward nonsense and was going to get rid of her!

    Leona wondered who would take her place as a Wizard Saint once she was dead and buried and just a footnote in history. Would it be that Shane Stern guy who was making waves in the talent-packed Rune Knights? Would it be Gisen Coestra the bunny girl? Would it be Tyson Rhodes the youthful but determined mage from Sabertooth? Or would it be Gaia Sabin, the ambitious young mage who was married to Kyran of West Fiore Trading Company?

    Maybe Leila Vergious would decide to reclaim the title of Wizard Saint. There were so many candidates for the title and so few places for them. Leona did not know who would take the place left vacant by her demise.

    Whoever took her place, they would likely do a better job at making people feel hope than she did. All Leona could do was dabble in science, try to play the scholar of ancient languages, and kill bandits. The others... they could succeed where she had failed. They could bring hope to a world that needed heroes, someone whose hands were not stained with blood like her own.

    Leona was expecting to die but was instead greeted by the warrior princess holding a copy of Sorcerer's Magazine with the Silver Wolf Guild Mistress herself on the cover. Samira's summon wanted her to sign it! Leona blushed. This was the first time someone ever asked her for an autograph.

    "Um, sure. I'll sign it for you." Leona whispered, taking the pen and going along with the summon's wishes. She was sure that Samira was fully aware of what was going on, but Leona went along with it anyway. Anything to forget the dark thoughts that had just run through her mind. Leona steadied the magazine and gave a neat signature in cursive handwriting.

    "Wow, Leona, your thoughts are DARK." Sylvia commented to her mistress.

    "Understatement." Leona replied tersely. She turned her attention from the warrior princess to Ruvel, the Guild Master of West Fiore Trading Company. Now that some of the awkward had vanished, she could speak to him without looking too dumb.

    "It's nice to see you too, Ruvel. I had just gotten here myself and played the Bobbing For Apples game. I don't know what on Earthland a festival is doing out here and I'm not sure it's entirely safe." Leona said to the slightly shorter blond male.

    "I wouldn't be surprised if zombies or werewolves crashed the party. In some parts of the Cursed Lands you can't throw a rock without hitting either one of them." Leona explained why she thought that the festival "grounds" were not entirely safe. That was one reason she brought out the harpies... they were a great eye in the sky as well as good partners in a fight. They also made good company... even Daphne, who seemed to make it her business to troll Leona at any given opportunity. Leona needed to find some new friends.

    Leona recalled what Samira said about Leona being a great Bobbing For Apples player who was a competitive one. The Wizard Saint of Courage blushed so hard that her head almost caught fire. Samira mistook the blonde's attempt to avoid drowning as being a competitive Bobbing For Apples player?

    Leona was not sure which was worse... being mistaken for some kind of weird person who enjoyed drawing attention to her chest or nearly drowning in a metal trough as a result of trying too hard to play Bobbing For Apples and slipping in. The second fate was certainly more ignominious than the first. Wringing part of her damp hair dry, Leona then turned to Samira.

    "Do you really think that there are more festival games involving water?" Leona asked the Goddess of Humility with a small amount of apprehension on her voice. Leona and water had not gotten along lately. First she had almost drowned under the Abandoned Cabin and now she had almost drowned at a festival. She found it funny that both incidents had taken place in the Cursed Lands, but the feeling of needed to breathe and not being able to was not very amusing to her. Maybe she and water were destined to be enemies since she was named after the lion.

    Notes :



    Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right?


    Ruvel could only smile to the others, it had been a while since he had been seen by anyone he guessed, not since the incident that had almost killed him what he could only imagine was several months ago. It was decided between his summons that he would be taken far away from Tolgalen and hidden from everyone that would think to hurt him once again. When settled within the ruins of his ancestral home within the farthest regions of the Silent Glaciers that the snow maiden whom was once one of his summons was sent as messenger to Amber Island. Seyuki was sent with a letter instructed that she herself had to place it in to Johann's hands and no one elses regardless of how long that wait may be or who may request to have it, the summons wanted to take no chances that their young summoners location might fall into enemy hands. It was weeks before they seen Seyuki again but that was to be expected with how long the travel would have been from where they were to the island and guild Johann now called home. The letter let him know where Ruvel had been taken and was being hidden for his safety, that he could visit when he had time but they wanted him to know what was going on so he didn't think the worst given everything that had been going on of late.

    Ruvel himself hated being inside the ruins but right now without the help of others there was no way he was going anywhere and he knew it, he also knew that his summons wouldn't let him out of the place regardless of the mental anguish that it caused him. This was the safest place for him right now as far as they were concerned as it was designed to keep him safe, the only alternitive was a place they never wanted him to go as he would never be able to leave it. The ultimate protection that Demi herself had made if she ever tried to harm him, problem was it was a gilded cage with no escape. Oykai knew that death would never be able to enter the pagoda when he entered and the thing couldn't be destroyed due to the amount of wards that where placed on it. He also knew that due to the fact that Demi herself hadn't crafted and only placed a small fraction of the defences into place there was no way she was going to be able to get through the defences. He was glad that she at had the foresight for that but still as much as he knew that Ruvel should already be in there, they just couldn't sentence him to an eternity of isolation if there were other options open to them. He was also glad that his cousins never told his twin about this place or they might have had other issues that they could do without at the moment.

    Still overtime the younge blonde headed mage got restless and they knew he would have to stretch his legs at least for a short time, they could even use this as a way to help train his other senses now that his sight had been removed, Oykai who normally played guard these days knew that they'd all be in trouble if Johann came for a visit and there was no one there. It wasn't something that could be avoided however or Ruvel may end up doing something no one wanted. Under strict rules Oykai and the other summons agreed that he could go on a job, which made the youth happy. It was only to be one small job and then they were coming straight back but it was enough to settle the unsettled youth. He even went onto a ship without issue and sat with some help in what would be his normal spot if on a company ship. During the journy Oykai had a look over the task Ruvel had wanted to go on, given that he was blind and not just unable to read they had all been prescreened by the summons so been deemed as safe, the issue was the flyer that he was currently looking at wasn't one that he remembered them agreeing on so it concerned him some.

    It was more concerning that it was within the cursed lands but they had agreed that he could do it, so they would stick to their word regardlesss, they knew their summoner couldn't lie so it would mean that the moment he chose this job it would have to be complete or it would have consequences. After a week or so on the ship they managed to get to where they were going, and finished the task with some issue but no one was permanantly hurt so there was always that he guessed. Still to stumble across Samira and Leona as they got lost was a strange thing to the reaper but he was glad within reason because it allowed Ruvel to socialize with people other than his summons for a change. He was also glad that Sato knew what bobbing for apples was or their little group would have a little problem that would end up with fighting, this was something that he wasn't wanting right now and knew his summoner hadn't gotten a handle on his senses enough to use his magic as efficiantly as he once had with sight, this was something they could work on over time and he himself would continue to study to try and see if there was a way to remove the energy that could and likely would keep him blind for the rest of his life.

    Hearing Samira speaking to him he chuckled nodding "Yes, I am here too." he said to the spring green haired summoner "My true name is known by a select few but you can call me Jasper." he said to the other, Ruvel knew that now Oykai's name was out of bounds and he would have to either call him by the name given or use their own bond due to the stigma of knowing one of his kinds names. Oykai was always strange to Ruvel as he had three names and they all held importance, his birth name only known by his family, the name given due to his cast and only known by his cast and then the name that he was referred to by those within his culture due to his status. The blonde often wondered if it was the same for Demi given she was the exact same in all aspects, he looked down saddened knowing that he would never be able to ask her himself. "The answer is yes, she has the same issues I have. You should know this." Oykai said tilting Ruvel's head back up once more "You both should introduce yourself, she looks a little confused." he explained "I'm Sato, my big sister is Yona!" the young boy in the t-shirt and shorts exclaimed excitedly with a giggle taking another bite out of his apple. "I'm Ruvel Mizune, one of the four god of Ishgar." he said simply placing his hand to his chest once more bowing to where he believed Samira was only for Oykai to move him so he was bowing in the right direction before he stood once more.

    "Oh, that little thought you had Samira..." Oykai said with a grin leaving Ruvel's side for a moment as he floated up and leaned into her ear "He and that glowing lightbulb of a toddler you seen in Era at Christmas... one in the same." he said with a chuckle before landing on the ground and walking back knowing that Sato would be able to handle being protector and guide for a few seconds if anything was to happen. He stopped looking to the two elder women "I should warn you, my race are telepaths by nature so I can hear your thoughts and the thoughts of your companions if they get to close and that counts doubly for my cousins, just thought you might want the warning in case I say something strange." he said covering his mouth yawning as he stopped by Ruvel's side once more. "And Samira, he was that kid that done the huge light show... he was previously hit with a de-aging curse that was broken a few months back." Oykai explained Ruvel remaining quiet as things were explained for him, not that he minded much. "Sato look after Rui for a few moments for me okay?" he said watching as the boy nodded before walking into the portal, both Samira and Leona would be able to see what could only be described as a huge library.

    The books, scrolls and lacrima where not just on the shelves but piled on the floor, there was a huge pile of fifteen to twenty open books on the floor as if they were all currently still being read and at once. It was when a sofa and a bed was seen that it was clear that this wasn't a library but an actual living space "Don't mind his bedroom, it gets kinda messy at times." Sato said to the others watching as Oykai was seen walking back and out of the portal it closing behind him "What did you just say about my home sappling?" he grumbled holding a few things in his hand "That your place got messy some times." he replied "Well yeah when I'm researching something or writing up notes it tends to." he agreed but knew that there was a good reason for that as he held out a package and a bag to Samira "I figured out your measurements thanks to the tree back a few months ago, pretty sure those Rune Knights want to know them though with what they seen." he said with a chuckle "The outfit was made by Rui and I made the scented candles, incense and oils in the bag." he let the other know allowing them to be taken before looking at Leona holding out another package "He had a keen eye and it looks like you needed a change out of your current soaked clothing." he said with a smile "It to was made by the boy wonder here, he likes to tailor and cook." he informed the silver wolf guild master.

    Oykai once again picked up on Samira's thoughts and nodded "He is indeed blind, thought the one who done it almost killed him." his fists balling under his sleeves, he hated that this had happened to someone like his summoner who wanted to do no harm to anyone but the universe seemed to want to make his life hell one way or another. It made it worse for him that his own twin sister who had done this meaning he held the sin of this attack as well because he was cursed with being a twin within their race. "No, we were on our way back from a job and got lost. Jasper wants to take me back to where I've been for the last while so I'm safe." he said in honesty to the green haired summoner "I'm adapting slowly to my current situation don't feel the need to beat around the bush or sugar coat things for me, I won't get any with people doing that." Ruvel continued so the two other mages knew he just wanted to be treated like he normally was, he hated when he wasn't because to him it normally meant something bad was going to happen to him. The issue for his summons was that the way they judged the blonde haired teens health was removed from them, so now they had to rely on him telling them and they didn't hold their breath on that happening any time soon.

    Ruvel blinked hearing the words of the other "Is that the music I've been hearing then?" he asked unable to tell without the help of others. "I asked Jasper to lead me here because I was curious, so I guess the answer would be yes." he said with a small smile "I know I may slow down everyone's fun, but mind if I tag along? It's been a while since I've conversed with anyone other than my summons and snow maiden and their counterparts." he said hoping that they would agree to him going with them even for a little while. "I seen her bobbing for apple skills and that's why I brought her a change  of clothing because that top is absolutely soaked." Oykai said with a small chuckle, he had no idea why Ruvel had made clothing for Leona, he guessed it was meant to be a present for some sort of special occassion but right now it seemed like she needed it more rather than later. Oykai picked up on the darker thoughts of the Silver Wolf guild master and quirked an eyebrow under the hood that covered his eyes 'You shouldn't think like that Leona, it is true that death comes to all but you should enjoy the gift of life before one of my cast come to claim it from you.' he sent right into the blonde haired woman's mind 'At that point it won't matter to you whom will be taking your position, titles aren't things you take with you after all.' a small smile crept across the albino males face, he hated dealing with those that had such thoughts but it seemed to be a common thing amongst mortals from what he had seen. 'Live for the hear and now, let tomorrow's problems be just that because you never know if you'll see the new day so why worry about it?' he finished hoping it would sink in to the other. This was why the living bothered him they worried about the most insignificant things at the end of the day, he had never been like them so he himself could never truly understand it and never would he guessed. "Given we are in the cursed lands that would a high inevibility, but given how strong we three are I doubt much would give us issue." he said calmly, he knew he would have a harder time fighting with finess but he did have other spells that hit everything so there was that.

    He understood the concern of the other guildmaster but until there was an enemy to be worried about, they should try to have fun. The context of 'fun' was still new to the youth but he was trying his best to learn for Arcadia he smiled for a moment with a light blush in his cheeks as he thought of her flowing blonde hair, sparkling emerald eyes and the beauty of her face but tears started to fall from his eyes and roll down his cheeks as he came to the realisation he may never see her again, that he would only have the memories of her apperance that would change over the years he was sure. "Rui.." Sato said with a bit of concern "What's wrong?""He just realised he can't see the woman he cherishes any longer, his heart is hurting worse than when he has to summon me." he said not knowing how to comfort him he looked to the other two that were there souls easily seen in his blood ruby eyes "I don't know how to comfort him, any ideas?" he asked Ruvel shook his head wiping his sleeve across his still hurting eyes "I'm okay, I still have memories of how she appears but I should go see her before we head back." he said not knowing if she knew what had happened "Absolutly not, the longer your in Fiore the easier it will be for them to find you.""I don't care I want to see her and I will no matter the danger I have a right to tell her." he said quickly making Oykai groan "Fine, but if she isn't in her guild hall when we turn up then we go back no fuss." he didn't want to argue right now and with everything that had gone on he thought that being near Arcadia might life his spirits a bit. Oykai eventually looked to the small group and sighed "Shall we get going? This place should be safe given people spent the time to set up and such and even if it isn't then we should enjoy ourselfs up to the point we need to deal with the issues that may arise." he said with a shrug taking Ruvel's hand and moving along towards the music once more, only stopping when he came across another barrier not caring if the others decided to tag along "Why did we stop?" Ruvel asked "A ring toss game it seems... with how your eyes are I doubt that you can do this one so will need the help." Oykai sighed this place was going to be far less fun for his summoner than he originally thought "I can do it, don't worry." he knew he might not be able to do it on his first few tries but he would never get over his hinderence if he didn't try. "Let's wait for the others and see who's going first." Ruvel said  with a frustrated tone "Yeah, might be for the best in the end." Oykai agreed only to turn his head hearing some guy near by calling out insults to those who passed by "That guy needs an attitude adjustment." the albino male said crossing his arms "Perhaps it is part of his game." was the only thing Ruvel could suggest not knowing if it was due to not being able to see the dunk tank.

    "Yaaaayyyy!" Serqet whispered in rejoice as the Saint of Courage agreed to sign the magazine for her. It was truly an exciting day. First free apples and now an autograph from the one and only Leona Jarnefeldt. Maybe she'd get super lucky and be able to make an entire collection of Wizard Saint autographs! For now though, she was ecstatic to have the one in her collection. Now she could go back home and annoy brag about it to all of her fellow spirit companions and even the other world entirely. Then she'd be sure to frame it and put it on a wall somewhere for all to see. It was going to be great. Once the signing was complete, Serqet took the magazine back and hugged it close to her chest. "Thank you!" She turned and sped off, dissipating into purple colored particles during the movement. Now the blonde was free to do as she pleased... which hopefully involved getting a new shirt at some point.

    Aha! So now Samira had a name to use for the small reaper other than the nickname a spirit had given him the first time they had met. The woman had no issue with the chosen name he preferred others use, even if it wasn't his real name. Many spirits didn't mind either because they simply didn't care. The one that used to call him Deathy though was eye rolling in that protective celestial space of his. Jasper? Seriously? That sounded way too normal and didn't exactly match the fact they were all staring at a four foot tall and some inches reaper. 'What was wrong with Deathy as a nickname? It described him perfectly and even had that cutesy ending to it. Small pokeable things need to have cutesy names. It's a law that's written somewhere.'
    'Are you saying that you find him cute and pokeable?'
    'For me? That's a no. He's creepy and I am staying here instead of going out there. You're the one that almost poked him the last time. Death by poke. Do I normally look like someone that wants to write something that stupid on a tombstone? So do me a favor and walk away before you get the temptation to-' The sentence was interrupted by Samira's sudden reminder of the cheek poking that she didn't get to do that last time, and the desire to try it again. He naturally picked up on that, as did the others with a heavy sigh. 'Dammit, Samira!'

    Thankfully the summoner had resisted the urge to try it again. Just because the temptation was there didn't mean that she was suicidal. The warning was given the last time and she was fully capable of heeding it. Her focus had now gone to her confusion on who the other two were, which was also taken care of rather quickly. The messy-looking child introduced himself as Sato, although the mention of a Yona made her tilt her head in further confusion. Her eyes gave a quick glance around, wondering if she had missed an older girl somewhere but she had seen nothing. Maybe it was just extra information that was given for the sake of it. Children did that at times. "Hello, Sato," Samira smiled and nodded as she replied. Then she focused on the blonde youth and waited for his introduction. "Nice to meet you, Ruvel." Another smile and nod without her even fully realizing the entire introduction. Then the proverbial lightbulb switched on and exploded into pieces. "Eh?!" Her emerald colored eyes widened in disbelief. That had to be a lie or exaggeration! The last time she looked at the records there was a picture of a toddler by that name! Well, she did think that photo was really outdated at one point, but surely the Council wouldn't have accepted such a photo. Maybe. She didn't know. Her mind was blown. "But-" she paused her words, her mind still blank from the destruction of any thought process that was originally there. "I thought..." She looked from Jasper to Sato and then back to Ruvel, clearly confused. Even Leona had walked up and called the blonde male by name. Then as if her thoughts had been picked up on it was explained that the small toddler from before was actually Ruvel. Did it occur to her that it was a spell of some sorts that de-aged him? Of course not. The first thought that entered her head was the opposite. Samira moved closer and leaned in for further inspection with her now wide eyes and gasped. "You grew up so fast!" Not.. quite accurate. Not even close actually. Samira was corrected with Jasper informing her that it was a de-aging curse, and she stood up straight once more. "Oh." Well that made more sense, didn't it? It was likely a more interesting tale as well that she would have to ask about later on. Did she feel stupid about her train of thought? Not even a little.

    Unfortunately, the whole mind reading was what the spirits focused on instead. Normally such a thing was impossible. Their own thoughts and voices would have been reached well before Samira's, yet somehow that reaper was able to pass through them unnoticed. They did not think their guard was let down that much while in the presence of allies. Apparently they were either wrong or he was able to get through even all of them combined. Perhaps the missing few was what made it possible for that breach. They would have to investigate and correct the issue at a later point. For now, they would have to deal with the fact that there was no mental protection. Yet another had crossed paths with their summoner that could defy the barriers and protections they had in place. It was so very annoying, and they did not want repeats ever, let alone so soon. The spirits demanded that she tell the small reaper to stay out. They themselves currently had no intention on going out there and starting a fight over it. Samira would have forced them back if they so much as tried and they could feel that. The ones that didn't give a damn about what she wanted were also away or had their links turned off to where they could not tell what was going on. Thank goodness for small miracles. 'That would be rude. He said he has a present for me.' And thus every spirit shook their heads and died inside. Apparently asking for someone to stop reading one's mind was rude if they brought presents. It better be a damn good gift that's for sure.

    A portal was then opened by Jasper, and after he instructed Sato to look after Ruvel he stepped through it. Naturally Samira was drawn to it, curious as to where it led. Instead of it being some vague flashes of blinding light the portal was one of those that showed exactly where it led it. Some sort of library it seemed to be. Dozens upon dozens of scrolls and books littered the shelves and even the floor. "Not the cleanest or most organized library, is it?" She thought out loud as she stared into the portal. Well that certainly didn't stop her from wanting to walk right through that portal so she could see what all those scrolls and books were about. Maybe it had some hidden knowledge that was located only in that library space. Then she noticed the bed and sofa. Maybe it wasn't a library. With that thought, Sato had commented that it was actually Jasper's room. Well it being someone's room didn't really make her want to go in any less. It was an open portal. Not like it was closed and locked. But before she could get her chance to just waltz right through it, against the advice of certain spirits and her better judgment, Jasper returned and the portal disappeared, much to Samira's disappointment. She pouted, but she was over it fairly quickly. Maybe next time.

    "Oh, thank you. You really did not have to-" Samira had just been about to thank the both of them for the gifts. Both of them had even made the items instead of just purchasing them. Extra effort was involved for something they really didn't have to do. She felt bad about not having done the same. Perhaps she'd make sure she had something prepared for the future. Not that she really knew what Ruvel liked and she doubted Jasper really wanted a lifetime supply of air freshener. For them that'd probably be an eternal amount. Maybe she'd ask around. That was how her thought process worked in those quick moments when she accepted the package and bag. Then it quickly hit her on what Jasper had just said. Her face turned a shade of red as she was reminded of that day. "We do not speak of that! Ever!" While not her fault that Christmas Tree had set a scene that was even more embarrassing and showed more than Leona's drenched shirt taken out of context. People needed to forget that even happened! Samira calmed her comical embarrassed outburst and went back to focusing on the fact that she got anything at all. She wanted to look at everything but uh... with a glance around their surroundings there was that huge reminder that they were standing right in the middle of the Cursed Lands. "You do not mind if I open these later, do you? This is not an ideal present opening location, and I do not want them getting dirty and broken after you both put so much effort into it. You are both very kind so thank you again." Ruvel had even made something for Leona and handed it to her. He really was one to be prepared it seemed. The other woman must have been thrilled to have a nice shirt replacement right when she needed one. There was just one problem and that was the fact the Cursed Lands lacked a dressing room. Well, maybe she could hide behind a tree or something to switch shirts or use her harpy ladies to surround her and act as a visual blockade. Assuming they were fine with her opening them all up later to look at everything, Samira would use a bit of her magic to open a small celestial portal and put the gifts inside where it would then close and disappear. They would be there until she retrieved them.

    It was confirmed that Ruvel was indeed blind with further details that he was nearly killed during the event that led to his condition. A most unfortunate thing to happen. She would not press for details, however. If they wanted Leona and herself to know then they would have told them. "Fair enough, Ruvel," Samira commented with an agreeing nod when he made his wishes known that he wanted to be treated normally and not have things toned down on account of his blindness. At his question on if he could tag along though Samira blinked. She didn't really think that he would slow them down at all really. Considering how long it took to get past the bobbing for apples game none of them were exactly rushing to get to the end. "Of course you are welcome to tag along! That is why I asked if you were heading that way. It will be fun! A festival in the Cursed Lands. It is exciting and mysterious and there is no telling what we will find once we reach the real party!" Samira wanted to take the hands of both Ruvel and Leona and lead them through the path as if they were skipping down a yellow brick road. But it seemed her lack of worry was not exactly infectious. Leona had expressed her concerns about the Cursed Lands and potential dangers and Ruvel agreed, but he also agreed that with their combined powers it was highly doubtful that they'd run into anything that they couldn't handle. Then Leona had asked her a question involving the games. Although the fellow Saint seemed bothered. Was she afraid that she'd make Ruvel and herself look bad with her carnival game talent? Well maybe since she mentioned water she was just afraid of ruining the new outfit Ruvel had made her if she changed into it. That made sense and Samira completely understood. The fact Leona almost drowned in an apple trough didn't even register in the summoner's mind. "I do not know." Samira folded her arms over her chest and thought about it. "The only games I can think of at the top of my head are those little water gun games where you shoot at a target. Maybe even the game where you throw a ball at a target and the person connected to said target gets dropped into a water tank. It will not be one of us though so your clothes should be fine. Do not worry." Yes, the clothes were something that Leona was surely and one hundred percent worried about. Not the death by drowning or anything.

    Before the group could continue on there was one other matter to take care of. Ruvel had begun to cry, and upon listening to the conversation it had to do with someone he was very fond of romantically. It was a sad situation that seemed more extreme in details than just his blindness preventing him from seeing her. Jasper had asked for advice on how to comfort him but Ruvel was quick to intervene before Samira could say anything. She just stood there and listened quietly until they went on ahead. In truth, she had no way of comforting him. The only advice she had was that if he truly never could be around her again then it was best to just forget about doing so. Keep the memory to cherish and learn from but leave it at that and do not long for more. Samira would respect him for being the rebellious type, though. At least rebellious in this case. He wanted to find and be with her at least one more time. Hiding for what may be forever wasn't exactly living, after all. Not when he wanted more. Although, Samira did have her concerns. Based on that conversation it sounded like someone was trying to find Ruvel. Hopefully his presence would not put that girl in any danger, or hopefully she was very capable of defending herself. Actually, weren't the two of them on a page in one of the magazine issues during Valentine's Day? Samira would have to check it out to be sure of that. For now though, she kept to herself and said nothing. It wasn't any of her business and Jasper knew what was best for Ruvel more than she did. Ruvel also seemed to know what he wanted. There was just nothing for her to add in that wouldn't seem like putting her nose where it didn't belong. Perhaps Leona would have some beneficial input.

    If Leona had not changed into the new outfit just yet, Samira would tap her shoulder to get her attention. "You should probably change while the boys are ahead and no one else is around. Although, I can have one of my spirits dry you off rather quickly if you like. Their powers are acting a bit strange today though so there is probably a ninety eight percent chance that you will end up on fire. I do not suppose that you have fire resistant abilities, do you?" Most would have probably said that was an obvious no based on appearances, but in regards to ability and magical prowess Samira was not all that certain. It was possible that Leona was very much fire proof. Her clothes too maybe. Samira forgot to inquire about that which was a bit odd seeing as a burnt shirt was even worse than a soaked one. If the offer was declined, Samira would understand and begin to follow along the path. If Leona had said yes... well hopefully she was fire resistant because there were going to be some flames to make that shirt dry in seconds.

    The path continued on until Samira caught up with the others, who had been stopped by another barrier and were waiting. "Another one?" Samira inquired before looking at the game that had been set up as a trial to complete before given access. This party was hardcore. Bottles lined the ground with various colors, with a single golden one. Thankfully getting the golden one wasn't exactly required. They just needed to hit a certain number of points to make the barrier go away. The amount required to gain entry to the next phase was told on the rules sign, as well as the amount each bottle represented with the golden one being an instant vanish of the barrier. Easy enough. "It looks like we are all given four chances. I assume there is a magic cast on this game to prevent cheating. Or I would hope anyway." It was tempting to just cheat by using magic to make the rings fall on the golden bottle. "But these are often usually rigged as well. I will not judge if someone tries that tactic if we fail enough times." Just her putting that out there. Just in case.... Honestly, it would probably be her that attempted it.

    "You were here before us, Ruvel, so you can go first if you like." It was probably going to be a difficult game for someone that couldn't see, but who knows? Maybe he had very good intuition and could do it very well like some people being able to do things blindfolded. If he didn't go first and Leona didn't volunteer, then Samira would ask if she wanted to have a turn. That is, assuming no one offered for Samira to go. In which case she would accept the offer. No matter which place she was in line, the outcome would be the same. The woman would grab four of the rings that were on a nearby booth and start to throw them, not really aiming for that golden one that was likely impossible to get, but the ones around it that were also high in points. Two misses and two hits. Not bad, but not great. She would be satisfied for now and step aside to let the others have their turns. If they all managed to hit something then the barrier would vanish and they could move on. If they didn't and they were stuck they could try the game again or cheat. Or go fight something. That worked too.

    Either way the next area would be larger than the others since it had one big setup for the dunking game that had the shouting man Ruvel could hear previously, as well as one of those games that tested one's strength. Oh boy!

    Leona despaired on how to get out of this latest predicament without coming across as... weird. Ruvel came to the rescue with a package of clothing that provided both a way out and a way to keep what dignity Leona had left. The soaked blonde gratefully took the package from Ruvel and looked for a safe place to change into the new outfit without Samira or Ruvel seeing her.

    "Thanks Ruvel. You're a lifesaver." Leona thanked the slightly shorter blond guy before ducking off behind a cluster of bushes as tall as she was and opening the package. Inside was a blue and white outfit that was a bit like her current one except that it also featured a pink necktie of sorts. It looked like it was tailor-made to fit her... no pun intended. Leona looked around for voyeurs and when she was satisfied that there were none, she started to take off her outfit top and replace it with the new one. Leona did so quickly and had barely put it on and secured it when Daphne stuck her head through the bushes and scared the blonde.

    "Like, do you like that Ruvel guy? Like, like like?" Daphne asked with a smile on her face. Leona clenched her teeth and threw the soaked top at the black-haired harpy. Daphne caught it with a clawed hand and threw it back.

    "I guess you do." Daphne took another jab at her mistress. Leona ignored the provocation and looked at Daphne.

    "Do you mind?" Leona asked with a voice that was trying to be polite but showed that her patience was fading fast. Daphne smiled and slowly pulled her head back out of the bushes in a way that was totally creepy. Leona took off her green skirt and was about to put on the blue one when the harpy's voice whispered a joke from behind the bushes.

    "Your skirt makes your butt look big." Daphne whispered. Leona put the skirt on, put on the blue-and-white boots, then packed away her green-and-gold outfit into her backpack and put the packaging in there as well. The annoyed blonde then emerged from the bushes and faced a worried Sylvia and Sandy. Standing behind them with a wide smile was Daphne, who was obviously using her sisters as a shield to keep Leona from hitting her with an apple, her fist, or a spell.

    Leona turned away from her and towards Samira and Ruvel. She looked down the path and there was a booth for a Ring Toss game, one that did not involve water. Leona was grateful for that because she doubted that Ruvel had another convenient change of clothes handy.

    "I'll check it out." Leona said to Samira and Ruvel before sauntering up to the booth and reading the rules posted on the sign. She had four plastic rings that were slightly smaller than a standard paper plate and had four tries to throw a ring and have it ring the golden bottle. There was a floor covered with bottles of varying colors that were neatly aligned in ranks and files like a glass bottle army, but the golden bottle was the main target. The prize depended on how many rings she managed to get to ring a bottle and what color the bottle was.

    Leona noticed the neat stack of rings on a wooden table with a festive summer-themed white and yellow tablecloth. She looked at them, then the bottles, then at Samira and Ruvel. The blonde was willing to try any game that did not involve water.

    "It seems legit, so I'll play first." Leona informed them. She grabbed the rings with her left hand, then sidled up to the booth and picked a blue bottle on the first row as the target of her first ring toss. Leona took a red ring into her right hand and gently tossed it with a flick of her wrist. The ring landed around the neck of the bottle and slid right down. So far, so good.

    Leona looked through the five rows and picked out a green bottle on the third row for a slightly greater challenge. Leona took a blue ring and gently tossed it with the same flicking motion; the ring landed around the neck of the bottle and shot down to the base. The elated blonde then turned her attention to the golden bottle in the middle of the fourth row. If she were to ring this one she would win the game.

    Leona took a deep breath, aimed carefully, and threw it smoothly. The orange plastic ring bounced off its mouth and rolled on its side until it hit the far end of the booth. Leona frowned and looked at the bottle... something about it made her want to try again. She had one ring left, so she had to make it count.

    Leona took a minute to get ready. Once she was mentally ready, she leaned forward a bit and made an underhand toss, not lifting her leg so that she did not flash Samira, Ruvel, or her harpies. The blonde held her breath and watched as the green ring rung the neck of the bottle and wobbled around it like someone rotating a hula hoop very fast. It wobbled around for six rotations and threatened to leap off the bottle, but after five more fast rotations it admitted defeat and sunk down around the bottle.

    Leona was pleased with herself for winning on the last toss. On the table where the rings were stacked sat a small plush lion with a fuzzy mane and deep brown eyes that peered into her soul. Leona found herself drawn to it despite herself and inspected it for traps or tricks, then picked it up and tried to find a way to fit the small king of beasts in her backpack.

    "OK Ruvel, looks like you're up!" The victorious Leona said to Ruvel while trying to work the plush lion into her backpack. Carrying it around in her arms would be so undignified.

    Notes :



    Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right?


    Oykai could only roll his eyes hearing the quick conversation between Samira and her own summon, he really did hate that nickname, to him it was just as bad as being called a reaper. Samira was mortal so it was of course likely easy for her to see him in such a thing but her spirit was just ignorant in his opinion. "My cast is actual title is Spiritual Calling in translation not Reaper, we don't reap people we call and lead them to the next stage of their journey. We reap the sorrow, hatred and horrendous memories of the last moments that we take on their next stage." he said his voice cold as he spoke, he wasn't exactly the warmest guy to begin with in this form, but, still he normally acted civil regardless to his dislikes of the living; it was something about being called a death god or reaper that seemed to hit an extemely raw nerve of the blue haired male. "Jasper, calm yourself." Ruvel quickly chimed in "Uh-hu... remember I thought you were scary once but you had to explain things 'cause I didn't know... maybe they don't either?" Sato added not knowing if his words were true but he wanted to help, this only made Oykai groan because he knew there was nothing he could do to win this arguement "Fine.." he said crossing his arms not overly happy but there was nothing for it at the moment.

    Sato waved with the hand that had his half eatten apple in it "Hi miss Samira!" he said excitedly once more giggling happy "I know you don't know who is within my company but Miss Hisamori has just been promoted to one of my vice presidents with me away from home I believe the company requires additional attentionl and if she can put up with Japser of all people she deserves the position." Ruvel said with a chuckle behind a clenched hand "I will kill you Rui.""And we all know you'd have to deal with Johann if you did." Sato quickly added with a big cheesy grin "I could tell the twins you just threaten his life""Do it and I'll take your life for a second time runt.""Aww but you'd make my big sister cry and you can't because of my contract... we both know it... Ruvel would have to give it up and he wouldn't... Would you...?" the quick conversation had Ruvel rubbing his temples "Will you both please get along with one another or I am dismissing you both and dealing with things on my own." the blonde groned, he knew that he was in no position at current to be on his own still he would rather try than the headache he was getting any worse. "No, Sato I will not be ending our contract until my day of passing and Jasper stop picking on him or there will be consequence." he said putting an ent to the discussion once and for all, Sato sticking his tongue out at Oykai who could only roll his eyes "Just remember Sato, that form isn't longed for this world..." he whispered to the other summon making him drop his apple nodding "I remember..." he said sadly moving to dig a hole and placing the ruined apple inside it returning it back to the earth before running back after Ruvel and the others. "I was enjoying that too." he pouted but knew he could get more later.

    "I went on a task with my big brother Johann, Mr Detholusin, my adopted big brother Cirven and Demi..." when he mentioned Cirven and Demi's names the stances and mood of the three changed drastically from what it was but where it was clear something had happened between the small group and the two mentioned it wasn't clear as to what had happened, what was clear was that it hadn't been for the better of the blonde. "Cirven, Johann, myself and Mr Detholusin were all affected by the curse... it seemed however due to what I was using as a way of defence was preventing my body breaking the curse as it wasn't the type I was meant to be using. I had to find my true defences before I could, Johann came with me and by the end of it I was how I am now with new abilities." he said with a smile knowing were he didn't need to explain himself or the ordeal he had been through from when he and Samira had first met til now, he still thought it might be nice to let her know "I could speak again in my native tongue again if it puts you more at ease or glow as I did back then." he didn't like the fact he glowed and it still wasn't a well known fact out of a handful of people "I would also rather the latter doesn't become a well know fact if possible for.... reasons..." he would rather not get into what those reasons might be but still he knew curious minds often wanted information especially if they were told no.

    Oykai let out a silent groan rolling his eyes once again "It's not because your guards are down, next to Rui's, Johann's and those within my race your mental defences are rather strong. This being said not only are my race natural telepaths but my cast bring those who meet their cycles end to the beginning of their next, so..." he took pause for a moment "So we see the memories and take the image of someone they knew that is dear to them, we find that it brings them comfort and they can take that step more easily. Due we know the back doors and weaknesses in mental defenses because of it." he explained to not just the small people within the festival but through the bond that Samira held with her own summons "It is not because I want to intrude on thoughts because to be honest I couldn't care less if you paid me to, it is just something that is natural to me when in this realm... it's one of the many reasons I hate mortals... it's like I never get a moments peace while in the presence of people who are inside the cycle of life and death." he overshared in that instance but he was sick and tired of people thinking that he actually had a choice in hearing things mentally when he didn't "It's doubly annoying for me because I also hear the thoughts of the people around my twin... so I hear the thoughts of people I'm not even near." he sighed "Anyway, I'm sorry if I intruded on anyone's thoughts." he said continuing to walk with Ruvel to where the next section of games seemed to be.

    Ruvel had been smiling since Samira commented on what she seen "That is just his study not his house, he's been researching how to get my sight back or if it is even possible for that matter." he said calmly taking the four rings that Sato had went to get him for the ring toss game "Jasper keeps everything neat normally unless he is researching something." The young blonde explained to Samira "He's one of his realms top researchers.""It's why I have a lot of books, scrolls and information lacrima" He explained his eyes going to a gem that dangled by his side a small smile on his face "My orders are given to me in gems like this one dangling, but this one is special to me so I keep it with me at all times" a light blush on his cheeks "Getting a fever or you thinking of her again?""Rui!" he said sternly Ruvel laughing happily at getting under his summons skin for the first time since their contract was made. "That tells me everything Jasper, I'm glad you finally made up with her." he said warmly throwing his first hoop but missing the bottle "Miss" Sato said letting his summoner know "Okay." he replied throwing another "Miss" Sato said again Ruvel nodding throwing another, he knew he was at a disadvantage but this was training of sorts so he didn't really mind. Throwing the third ring he knew that it was an over shot a smile on his face "Last one, best make it count." he said throwing the fourth towards the golden bottle for a moment it looked like it was going to jump off but went down "Did I get it?" he asked "Yup!" Sato cheered happily "Sato choose something for yourself for helping.""Really?! You mean it!" Ruvel chuckled nodding "Okay!" he said running to go choose a present for himself as Oykai took him by the hand leading him to something that could do he guessed. "Where are we going?" he asked the albino summon "Test your strength." Oykai said in return making the youth uncomfortable.

    The reaper could feel it instinctually "Sato, return home if you don't mind. I think one of the twins wil be required." Sato nodded hugging his sunflower plushie he got as a prize "Okay! I can show my big sister my new friend! If you need me again Rui just call me kay?!" The green haired boy said waving happily to the group "Of course, thanks again for your help Sato." Ruvel said just before the male left 'Amuul, I need help. It's dark so you can come out of my shadow.' he sent to the younger of the two void princes. From Ruvel's shadow a 6'3" tall, seemingly lithe built, albino skin toned male with long white hair tied to the left, deep indigo eyes. He was wearing a semi loose black and carmine red hanfu robe over it was a long sleeveless crimson hatori, at his back a straight sword with a white tassel would be seen. 'I'm here, what's needed?' Amuul sent to Ruvel "Test of strength, we know my body isn't strong enough for this." he explained Amuul nodding taking the hammer with little issue feeling the weight, due to his innate gifts he seen what the trick was and hit the scale slightly off lower centre within a few seconds a ding would be heard 'That was easy.' he sent to Ruvel "My prince would you mind taking over, I have an issue." Oykai said holding up a blue crystal  'Yes cousin, go.' he said watching his cousin walk through a portal after a few moments. Due to everything that was going on Ruvel hadn't paid much attention to the goings on of the others but was led back by Amuul 'Hello to you both, my name is Amuul.' He sent to the other two bowing politely 'Oh and don't worry about ruining your clothing, our summoner has several outfits make for most people he meets.' Amuul let the other two know knowing there was at least one more water game in this festival. Ruvel smiling happily "This is the younger of the twin princes from the void, Jasper's cousin." he let them know knowing that there was a family bond knowing that they didn't mind such a thing to be known.

    Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right? (Event with Ruvel) Empty Re: Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right? (Event with Ruvel)

    Post by Samira Nassar on 7th July 2019, 8:01 am

    The comments made by Jasper continued to be of an annoyance to many of those spirits connected and listening in. The main one communicating especially. Samira mentally cut off the link with that one to prevent any more outbursts or possible actions from being taken that would have made things worse. She was still in her mindset that it would have been rude to demand that Jasper stay out of her mind when he and even Ruvel had made gifts for her. Based on his responses he didn't seem to have much choice in the matter regardless and would have preferred not always having such involuntary access to another's private thoughts. However he was taking initiative to enter the mental conversation instead of remaining quiet and ignoring what had been said. That had taken a breach of privacy even further and was something that she would have to address if they ever crossed paths in the future and that problem still occurred. Thus far for that day she would let it slide. Samira didn't plan on making or participating in any drama. She just wanted to enjoy the festival, assuming of course they ever got to the real party. With all of the barriers around and a severe lack of other people it was possible it was all a prank or a trap. Well, that was to be dealt with later if necessary.

    The ring toss game had been done by each of them and they were allowed to move on. With a bit of relief the mind reading issue with Jasper would come to a momentary end. Both he and Sato took their leave. It was unfortunate really. Despite the slight issue she enjoyed the interaction and banter between Ruvel and those two. Samira also liked being told about the curse that had de-aged him some time ago. Naturally she was curious as to the reason of why he didn't want people to know about the glowing, but she could understand him wanting to keep secrets. They didn't know each other all that well, and if she were going to pry it was best that it was not in a public location. If the Cursed Lands could really count as a public setting. It certainly was open enough for eavesdropping ears, she supposed.

    In their place was another that seemed to take residence in Ruvel's shadow until called, or she assumed he had been called. He had popped out suddenly while she was waving and saying goodbye to Sato. The newest addition to the party completed the Strength Hammer game with little issue. A proverbial sweatdrop appeared at the side of Samira's head as she smiled awkwardly and watched. Well that certainly made the game look easy, didn't it? He must have been stronger than he looked. It was after that, that Jasper took his own leave in order to take care of some business. Samira waved goodbye to him too but whether he noticed or not was anyone's guess. If the issue was serious enough then probably not.

    Regardless, the one known as Amuul led Ruvel back to them and made his introduction by way of telepathy. Samira was quite used to mental voices in her head so that wasn't the surprise really, it was more so that, that was the method of communication used when he was standing right there. Perhaps he couldn't speak normally and was a sort of mute. "Hello there. I am Samira," she greeted warmly with a small wave of her hand since handshakes were likely not good for her health when performing that act with one of his race. "I suppose you prefer telepathy as your form of communication?" Thus far in the few moments he had been around he seemed friendly enough, and very polite. They were all so well mannered actually. It was kind of... eerie now that she thought about it when compared to her own magical team of dysfunctional hooligans.

    After she had spoken to greet Amuul though, another voice jumped into the conversation. One that came from the dunking game that was set up not too far off. Apparently an associate of the festival had taken notice of them all and had taken it upon himself to shout out varying insults so they would take notice of him as well. "Excuse me for a moment. I am going to look into that game over there, and see if I can quiet down that noise." While Samira wasn't really one to get angry over petty insults, especially ones that were just for the game, she still didn't approve of it. Surely there had to be a better way to gain interest for a simple game.

    She left them to make her way over there without saying another word. Once she approached, Samira got a better look at the one in the tank. Usually it was some man in a sort of swim wear. Or even a type of clown. For this case the one in the tank was dressed in some ridiculous costume that was similar to one of her spirits, but much more... obscene. Was it a way to poke fun at the real Cernunnos? Samira covered her mouth, trying to suppress a giggle that could be the only logical reaction to such a costume that was so similar to her spirit version. Whether as part of the game or real offense, the one in the tank didn't seem to like the laughter. He was supposed to be the one laughing, after all! His comments and insults that followed mattered little to her. She would try this game. There was a booth where a great many buckets of throwing balls were lined up. With a light skip in her steps she grabbed some and went back to standing in front of the tank to have a better view and angle of the bullseye target. One ball was thrown and missed. Then another. The woman was more accustomed with aiming a bow or even a sword than she was with throwing balls. Maybe she'd train in that area for next time. Still though, she could have sworn she had hit the target at least once or twice but the ball just bounced right off. Did she really not throw hard enough? The thought gave her pause as she contemplated if perhaps that game was also rigged for failure. Another insult caught her attention. It would have been ignored entirely if it had not practically been permission for her to cheat. A comment had been made that even with all of her spirits helping her that she would never manage to hit that target and make him fall into the water. Yes, he knew who she was. He knew who all of them were. It was hard to not recognized a trio of Wizard Saints passing by. And so, with that comment, Samira's eyes narrowed, taking it seriously. "Very well." A magic aura lit up around the summoner as all of the spirits currently there gave her a portion of their power for this... game. The man in the tank realized that he was taken a bit more seriously than he would have liked and tried to take it back but it was too late. The next ball was thrown in full magical force, breaking through the enchanted plate of the target, through the wall of the tank, through several trees, and on and on the ball went until it disappeared somewhere in the distance. Needless to say, the game had been won. The man on the board fell into the water. A long overdue punishment.

    The barrier containing them in that portion of the festivities vanished. The four trials of Apple Bobbing, The Ring Toss, The Dunk Pit, and The Strength Hammer were complete. Now the true festival was revealed as even more games, booths, and even people were up ahead. Would this end with them all just enjoying themselves? Or would there be more going on with this festival in a strange land? Even the narrator behind this post does not yet know!

    Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right? (Event with Ruvel) Empty Re: Cursed Lands Has Festivals Too... Right? (Event with Ruvel)

    Post by Leona Jarnefeldt on 8th July 2019, 2:49 pm

    Leona had long since given up on trying to stuff the plush lion into her backpack and opted to just carry it in her arms. It was undignified for a Wizard Saint to carry a stuffed toy around, but it was slightly easier for her to get away with it since she was a female. Ruvel could get away with it too since he was a strong mage who happened to look very young for his age. As for Samira... who was brave enough to insult the strongest mage in existence and who outside of the Magic Council could tell her what to do?

    Some guy dressed in skimpy clothing that no man should wear had the audacity to insult Samira with some choice insults about the Goddess of Ishgar's competence. He implied that she would be unable to win the game without the aid of her team of spirits. Unable and unwilling to let the challenge go unanswered, the Goddess of Humility strode forward to the dunk tank where the man was sitting with the intent on teaching him a lesson in manners. Leona was glad that she had not been the one to anger Samira by having the bad sense to imply that the green-haired Goddess could only get by with the help of her spirits.

    Leona clutched her stuffed lion and watched from afar as Samira began to throw balls at a white disk attached to a mechanical arm and painted with a red bullseye. After Samira's first few attempts did not succeed, the man did not have the good sense to quit while he was ahead and goaded Samira with more snide remarks mixed with insults. He kept going right until she had had enough of his nonsense and did something that gave her more power to overcome the game, which appeared to be one of those rigged carnival games that people disliked. Samira's next throw hit the target dead center and dunked the man in the water tank, silencing his baseless talk in a decisive fashion.

    Leona turned away from the dunk tank and focused her attention on something that had caught her eye. Ruvel had just finished a game called The Strength Hammer, completing all the games necessary to access the entire carnival. Now that all the magical barriers had been removed, the carnival was open for the Wizard Saint and God and Goddess of Ishgar to explore.

    "Hey girl, what will you do from here?" Sylvia asked her mistress.

    "I don't know yet, Sylvia. I've never been to a carnival before." Leona answered with uncertainty. There were so many activities to choose from and so many food booths with wares to sample. She was somewhat interested in a confection called cotton candy but had no idea what it was. It looked like someone had scooped sections of clouds out of the sky and had dyed them different colors before putting them in plastic bags for sale.

    There was also a flavored ice booth with a large white sandwich board sign to the left listing all the flavorings that customers could pick from. Once they made a selectionthe worker took shaved ice in a white styrofoam cup and put the chosen flavoring on it with a syrup bottle turned upside down. Leona was halfway tempted to try a cup of that sugary treat.

    Three booths to the right of the flavored ice booth was a conventional soft-serve ice cream stand that sold ice cream in cardboard cups. Aside from the old standbys of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla, customers could also pick from flavors like Neapolitan, Rocky Road, Caramel, and more. Again Leona was tempted to try something from there.

    "You act like you've never seen ice cream before." Daphne snarked.

    "I grew up in the middle of the desert, Daphne. We didn't have ice cream in the desert because there was nowhere to keep it cold and that stuff melts fast." Leona replied calmly, suppressing the urge to shout at the raven-haired harpy for being so insensitive. Daphne suddenly looked embarrassed and quickly backed off. Sandy kept quiet but had an apologetic facial expression.

    Leona had never been to a carnival before. It was a new experience to be among all the lights and cheerful accordion music and laughing people playing games of all types. With so many options laying in front of her, Leona had no idea what to do next.
