    When Theo landed his flying pirate ship in the small meadow near the mountainous town, he hadn't been looking to stop there. He and his new friend had been on their way to some ruins on the other side of the mountains when icy hues had spotted quite the celebration below. The jello mage's attention span wasn't known for being super sound, and his curiosity always got the better of him. "Oooh, let's see what's going on!" he grinned, leaning far over the railing before bounding for the help and spinning the steering wheel.

    Within a few minutes, he was putting the ramp down and running down it, not registering where exactly they were. If he'd just taken a second to check the coordinates, Theo most likely would have never stopped here. But for now he was blissfully ignorant, or maybe his memories were still fuzzy. Since their initial meeting, Theo had evened out, returning back to his normal self...whatever his normal was. Aspen wouldn't know that, of course. She hadn't known him before his latest series of unfortunate events, and honestly, his first impression had not been the best. At least he had enough jewel to convince her, though he had no where near the jewel he used to have...

    "It looks like some kind of festival. Wanna have some fun before we go dig up that magical goblet thingy majigger?" he asked his companion, idly dusting some invisible dirt from the navy zip-up of his faithful tracksuit.

    Aspen began to slowly start regretting her decision to accompany this man called Theo, who at best semed mentally challenged, and at worst an unhinged lunatic who'd lost all grip on reality. She'd assumed that, since the other was a mage within the same guild as herself, he would be a respectable and professional mage, the other quickly working to convince her of the complete opposite, and much the same way as someone would lament a particularly stupid decision, Aspen would feel about being dragged along for an adventure as assistance ... on Theo's literal pirate ship. Maybe she could get away with shooting him now and leaving before things got too out of hand? Yet, before she even had a chance to act on her thoughts, still bewildered that she had even agreed to this in the first place, he spun the wheel of the ship, the whole thing turning, Aspen hastily reaching for a railing, holding on tight lest she be thrown down or even off the ship that she wasn't even sure was safe. For all she knew, the dude was crazy, so why would his flying death machine be any different?

    Before Aspen knew, though, he set down his murder machine, spouting something about a festival and ... a what? "Festival? Goblet? What?". The girl from Pergrande would ask the other in a somewhat confused tone, raising an eyebrow at the dude in the tracksuit, eventually just giving up in trying to keep up with his shenanigans, closing her eyes and sighing softly. "Fine, if that's where you wanna go let's get it done. Lead the way, Treasure Hunter"

    "Don't seem so excited, Aspen," the dark-haired man pouted momentarily as he indeed lead the way, this time catching her sarcasm but choosing to let it go. He was a treasure hunter. He wasn't sure why she used that tone. Perhaps he'd have to prove it to her later...after the festival.

    The crowds perusing the tents and games just outside of town were on the small side, since this community was a bit out of the way and favored the rich and eccentric. Nonetheless, the scent of amazing food painted the air in spicy colors, really hitting home this whole autumn feel. The trees that dotted the flat areas were just starting to turn their pretty fall colors, and the mountains themselves were draining of life and seeming as if they were going into hibernation for the winter.

    Despite all this and the fact that it'd been his decision to stop here, Theo didn't quite like this place. He couldn't put his finger on why even though the reason was rather glaring, and instead chalked it up to his old self itching to steal from these rich folk. It'd been literally centuries since he'd been a thief, but that type of deeply engrained itch didn't just vanish. He placated it by finding old stuff people long dead had hidden away, or items that were thought lost to time, but his impulse to find and take valuables was never really sated.

    Since they were here, he'd enjoy himself one way or another. Did his sweetly tuned nose detect pie?! As if he'd turned into some sort of dessert radar, his head swiveled back and forth as his trajectory abruptly changed. He was heading for a tent sporting a brightly lettered banner, one he couldn't read, but also didn't really need to. It was filled to the brim with pies and other desserts, and the long table on the stage filling with people was self explanatory. "This is an eating contest! Free sweets! Do you dare challenge me?" he playfully teased his unwilling companion, trying to goad her into enjoying the local activities. His grin was impish and his unnervingly bright eyes were expectant.

    "I'll try", the Dragon Slayer quitely muttered under her breath, following Theo into the crowd that seemed to pay little mind to the literal flying pirate ship they had just landed right beside them. Then again, the fact that there even was such a thing as a literal flying pirate was astounding, and although Aspen didn't quite show it ... at all, the contraption did fascinate her, and unfortunately, so did the somewhat mysterious Silver Wolf mage, admittedly. If this was his ship, he was the one who'd made it fly, right? Perhaps the man was a better mage than he made her believe. In any case, the way magic interacted with this land and the people within was fascinating. It was almost like an entirely new world, in a sense, the flood of new things Aspen had never seen before surprising her anew day after day. There wasn't just that, though.

    The experience of this autumn festival was entirely new to the girl from Pergrande as well, Aspen unable to hide at least a hint of fascination, her wide-eyed gaze darting from stand to stand, attraction to attraction. Festivals, where she came from, had been unheard of, and her existence, mostly spent on active duty, had been dull, repetitive, if not straight up boring. It hadn't been an exciting life, but at least she survived, unlike many of her peers.

    Somewhat lost in her thoughts, however, the girl noticed Theo stop before making a beeline towards a particular direction, heading straight for a tent, Aspen deciding to follow him still, the sweet scent of dessert filling the air, making it obvious what exactly Theo had set his sights on. In honesty, it'd been a while since breakfast, and a snack wasn't out of the question at all. Intrigued, the girl found her way closer to the tent and to the odd fellow's side, looking into the tent. The girl was immediately hit with an overwhelming array of sweet flavours that lingered in the air, her expression as always bored and, for the lack of a better term, quite expressionless, her stomach, however, more than confirming that she, too, had taken interest in the desserts. "An eating contest, you say?", the girl asked, somewhat unfamiliar with contests of that nature, unsure how or why people would turn a simple, boring activity such as eating into a competitive event, though remained interested, especially after Theo issued a challenge. Aspen was quite competitive, so naturally, the man had her attention, and while he appeared like a dunce there remained a certain charisma in the way he approached things. Although her gaze remained unchanged, a small smirk would lift up a corner of her mouth, nodding her head. "Sounds like a plan, Treasure Hunter. Alright ...", the girl raised an arm, and with a confident smirk pointed at Theo, the situation starting to amuse her somewhat. "... I challenge you to a duel at ... eating. May the better, uh, eater win".

    Theo was absolutely delighted to see Aspen exhibit the least little bit of emotion, even if it was to simply rise to his challenge. "Yes! Let the better eater win!" he echoed enthusiastically, chuckling after. She'd been so blank that he'd started to think he'd recruited a robot as a companion. While she was certainly capable...robots weren't any fun! As much as the two were nearly opposites of each other, this gave him hope that they might be able to meet in the middle eventually.

    Once they were seated, it contest promptly began. It seemed to Theo that the winner would be judged on how many plates were stacked beside them. He made sure to accept the pie that came his way, savoring the delectable smell of apples and cinnamon. The man wasted no time devouring it, and it wasn't a pretty sight, either. His tracksuit and face were covered in crumbs and sweet goop, but Theo didn't seem to have a care in the world. He was a simple man with simple pleasures, and sugary desserts made him giggle like a child.

    There was one glaring problem that reared its ugly head early on. As Theo licked his plate clean, it refilled with food right before his eyes! Blinking slowly for a few seconds, he glanced around to see if everyone else had encountered this. On his left, everything looked like his situation. Bewildered people and no empty plates. The judges didn't seem to notice at all. Maybe it was supposed to be like this? His plate stack theory coulda been wrong. It wasn't like he'd listened to the instructions. A glance to his right revealed a different story. While most of these people were also dealing with a self-filling plate, the guy next to him had a small stack growing and was eating extremely fast. Maybe that was the secret?

    Now fueled by competition with both the guy next to him and Aspen, he tore into his second plate as quickly as possible. However, just like before, it magically refilled. "Aw, man!" he whined, but became even more determined. The treasure hunter didn't realize the guy was using magic to cheat!

    Scarfing down more and more food without looking, the poor man thought he might pop but kept going in hopes of winning. That was all dashed when he hit a spicy taco dip, though. As soon as the mild chipotle peppers and jalapeños registered on his tongue, he was squawking like an injured parrot. "H-Hot! Hot!!" Theo cried, grabbing his throat as if he'd been fatally wounded. Tears started to form in his eyes. "M-Milk!" his hoarse voice rasped, but no milk came.

    As if to taunt the man, milk mysteriously arrived for the cheater sitting next to him with all the plates piled high. That was it! In a fit of spice-induced rage and desperation, Theo lunged at the larger food mage, tackling him out of his seat and stealing his milk to gulp down hastily...

    Needless to say he was given a participation trophy and thrown out. Rude.

    In the end he was left fanning his tongue with the stinging tears of a displeased toddler still balancing in the corners of his eyes. Fine, he'd take his participation trophy and leave this time! Mixing in spicy foods with things as innocent as pie was a dirty trick, and what was the big idea of making the food never stop? He knew he didn't like this place...

    "I think we should redo that some day...no spicy food and no magic cheaters," the jello mage suggested as he wandered aimlessly through the rest of the festival, presumably with Aspen in tow. Every so often he'd scratch the back of his neck or stretch it, as if he was uncomfortable, but never said anything. The festival spread into the town a bit, and Theo seemed to be following the signs pointing to the maze. Given the location of this festival, there was no room for hay or corn mazes. As he strolled up to the wrought iron gate protecting a mansion they'd magically rigged as Shirotsume's version of the age-old autumn classic, his brow puckered. "Wanna do the maze next?" he asked, though with much less enthusiasm and a few healthy portions of uncertainty. His arctic hues dropped to the ground at the gate, that weird tickle in his brain growing more intense, but he was too dense to grasp it yet. Or maybe he'd simply blocked it out. Or maybe it was just the spooky decorations all over the creepy abandoned house, complete with strobe light to mimic lightning and a speaker creaking out eerie sounds.

    Aspen wondered just what exactly she had agreed to in a moment of competitive delusion, walking towards the rows of tables and plates that had been set up with a somewhat queasy feeling in her stomach ... or maybe that was just a hint of hunger? Still, seeing those rather vast quantities of all kinds of foods made her uneasy, not because she didn't enjoy a good meal, quite the contrary, but she wasn't exactly the most gluttonous eater. Perhaps the man called Theo was different in that regard? She would see. Her face returning to her normal stoicism, she took a seat beside the mage in the tracksuit, a plate immediately being placed before her, Aspen looking directly at a slice of pumpkin pie that, to be honest, smelled quite delicious. Picking up the cutlery, the girl began eating in what seemed like an almost relaxed manner, not at all gobbling down as many foods as possible like some of the other contestants. She looked around, watching some of the other participants for a few seconds before turning back to her own plate, the display of gluttony not exactly serving to bolster her appetite a lot and, when others had already consumed plate after plate after plate, the Dragon Slayer was only just now finishing up her first one, sighing as she placed the fork on the table beside her. That would do it. She leaned back, stretched and stood up. "I give up".

    She hated to admit, but the slice of pie and the heavy cream served alongside it had been quite filling, and there was no way she could take more than one of those, so it was the logical option. She wasn't about to lose her grace and descend into a food fueled frenzy. Some of the other contestants raised an eyebrow but didn't pay her much mind, returning to their horrendous display of unappetizing indulgence, Aspen shooting a look back to Theo and her own plate as he moved away from the table. Seemed like someone had already refilled her plate without her even asking. How odd. Well, that would go to waste, probably. Still, she retained a little interest in how the other challenger was holding up, eyeing Theo from the side who seemed to encounter the same odd circumstance as herself, only that the man seemed much more determined than herself, of course also witnessing the display that followed. "You don't appreciate spicy food, huh?", the hint of a teasing smirk formed on Aspen's lips, though would vanish as quickly as it had come, Aspen being handed her own participation trophy. "Well, Treasure Hunter, even if you don't win the contest, it seems like you won our little bet. You're the better eater", her monotonous tone giving away no emotion besides serene boredom. Still, even if she didn't show it, watching him gawk like a chicken had certainly been somewhat amusing, the girl deciding to not regret making the bet and participating in the contest after all.

    "Of course", Aspen responded to Theo's offer, "As long as you pay for the food". She was horribly broke still, and although she really didn't wanna give the guy the wrong impression she certainly wouldn't pass up the opportunity for a free meal. Although the girl couldn't help but think, perhaps the mage in the tracksuit was more ... interesting, for the lack of a better term, than she had initially thought. Although this was her first-ever experience regarding an actual festival she didn't consider it a waste of time, no, quite the opposite, in fact. He seemed like there was more to him than just his stupidly happy and carefree exterior, and so, Aspen decided to keep following him across the festival grounds ... for now. That was, of course, until he had led her to the next eccentric little event, Aspen looking at a mansion that had been repurposed into a ... "maze"? She wondered what that was. With her admittedly not perfect language skills, she struggled to find an equivalent in her own language she'd heard of, although nothing came to mind. Of course, she wouldn't admit that to Theo. "Sure. Maze sounds good". She'd just have to wait and see what this maze was and what exactly the festival attraction had in store for her, wait for just what exactly she would see within that mansion ...

    Any mirth he'd gained from seeing the slightest change in Aspen evaporated as quickly as it'd come. His mind was chanting 'doormat' in the most peculiar and haunting female voice. Every part of him suddenly regretted coming here, specifically this house. Even as they passed the gate and the perky attendant giving out the do's and don't's of the maze, the itching at the back of Theo's neck only intensified. Once they stepped inside the mansion and the entrance mysteriously seemed to disappear, the pieces of the puzzle started to slip into each of their horrifying places.

    "Hahaha," he laughed as if the air had been knocked out of him, feeling like someone punched him in the stomach and then decided to perform a river dance. His replacement nervous system made of vines and forget-me-nots felt like it was crawling under his skin. "I'm fine," Theo said, though its unprompted nature perhaps indicated the opposite. This was the exact abandoned mansion Ambrosia had dragged him into, trying to make him into a doormat for her feet, and doormats didn't scream or writhe.

    "Oh, Aspen," the treasure hunter nearly wheezed, placing a hand on his stomach. The logical conclusion, not knowing him at all, would be that he was simply feeling the consequences of eating like he had just a few moments ago, but sadly, that wasn't the case. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder was rearing its ugly head. As he looked around, he could still see his blood-smeared everywhere, and the white and blue demon girl laughing as she mangled him. "Hah...Haha," he humorlessly chuckled, suddenly starting to move forward, since he couldn't turn and run back out the door. "Hngh, m-my blood..." he seemed to slip out of the moment for just a second before he snapped back and looked at her, covered in a cold sweat. "This was a mistake. I'm sorry," the young man said, straining every fiber of his being to hold it together.

    Unwillingly letting his serious side show, he straightened from a slightly bent position and decided they needed to get out as quickly as possible. "Ok, we're gonna do a speed run of this," he informed her once he was sure he wouldn't lose all the food he just ate. "I'd somehow forgotten I'd been here before. I, uh...got tortured in this house once. Heh, weird, huh? So...I need to get out fast. I'm sorry," he apologized again, then took off running like a madman.

    Theo wasn't good at a lot of things, nor was he a very smart man. However, one thing he was usually good at was having a sense of direction. It was invaluable to treasure hunting. Mazes were a little different than finding caves and exploring them, but he only made a couple panicked wrong turns as they rushed from room to room. Each dusty room and musty hall only increased his breathing rate. He could hear his own phantom shrieks of pain going unanswered, bouncing off every wall. The memories of his frantic thoughts, his internal pleads that someone would come save him before he died, the conflict of being terrified to die again but wishing he could so the pain would stop...then the maddening sensation (or lack there of) when his nervous system was removed and he no longer felt anything. The complete absence had nearly broken his mind as badly as his body was.

    At last, Theo was able to burst through the double doors of the exit leading into the back yard, pushing past the woman that tried to give him his victory trophies. Once out he promptly collapsed onto his hands and knees, gasping for breath. A quick roll later, he was sprawled on his back, staring up into the sky and trying to calm down. "Why did I have to stop here...Shirotsume of all places...All I wanted was to show you a fun festival..." he panted, bringing his arm up to cover his pale blue eyes with his tracksuit sleeve.

    Confusion was the most appropriate term to describe what Aspen felt, eyeing her fellow Silver Wolf mage with slightly raised eyebrow. She didn't quite understand the appeal, the aim of this "maze", or whatever else this could be called, was to aimlessly wander around until one would find the exit, the value of entertainment such as this escaping her entirely. In her eyes there was no purpose in this action other than mindlessly killing time, which, as she had found, seemed to be the highest goal at this thing people called a festival. Though, of course, that wasn't the only reason why she thought Theo a complete fool. As soon as they had entered the maze the other seemed to go through some kind of nervous episode, wheezing and flailing like a suffocating chicken. "Are ... are you okay?", the girl asked not out of concern, though what could be interpreted as a hint of strange curiosity, the man in the tracksuit, however, quickly confirming that he was fine, a fact Aspen was doubting heavily based on the fact that she had two eyes and assumed she could see fairly well.

    Indeed, the other continued his strange antic, calling her by name, the raised eyebrow on the girl's face persisting for just a little longer, replying in a tone that was ever-so-subtly different from her normally monotonous one and laced with an indication of confused questioning, "Yes?", the Treasure Hunter chuckling again, serving to begin to also unnerve the Dragon Slayer, slowly but surely. "What is it?". Of course, this, too, wasn't answered by a straight reply, the other instead going in a strange tirade about ... blood? "What about it? Hello?". Aspen found her patience runnign thinner and thinner, especially considering Theo was rather unresponsive, instead dancing around like a monkey, the sounds he produced not entirely unlike one either. "Are you having a stroke, Treasure Hunter?", the girl would ask quickly, now with a more direct implication of potentially self-serving concern for the other's well-being. Despite his ... somewhat evident mental challenges Aspen wouldn't appreciate the fact that the first festival she would ever go on would leave her associate dead, and with the girl unsure what to make of the man's behavior she couldn't be quite sure either way. Was it possible he'd gotten himself into a rather unpleasant food-poisoning situation, lamenting the pressing absence of a toilet? Perhaps. One of many theories that crossed Aspen's mind, some reasonable, some more absurd, which was of course until Theo clarified.

    This still didn't serve to clarify the matter to the girl, though. "Huh?", the girl tilted her head at the mention of speedrunning, staring at the other when he explained that he had been ... tortured? Not just that, in this place? This didn't make sense. At all. The girl stared at the Treasure Hunter for a good few seconds before simply uttering a now openly confused and very much defeated "What?", followed by "Can you ex- Hey!", Theo caring little to do so, the other Silver Wolf mage, in fact, already in the middle of a mad dash, leaving Aspen behind. The girl simply closed her eyes, pinching the bridge of her nose with a heavy sigh as she lowered her head. After everything that had occured thus far would she have to babysit him as well? Thinking about it ... without Theo, she would be pretty much stranded. She had no idea where in Fiore they actually were, if they even still were in Fiore, and being a new arrival to this land the way back to the guildhall was ... entirely unknown. "Wait! Treasure Hunter!", she opened her eyes with a bit of shock, immediately beginning to make after him and deeper into the maze.

    Although Theo had gotten a more than decent head start on her and was out of her sights Aspen managed to follow the man's scent using her slayer senses, which was her one saving grace considering that labeling her sense of direction as terribly inadequate would be a gross understatement, clumsily making her way through the maze and eventually out of the same double doors as Theo, spotting the guy on the ground right outside the Mansion, making her way over and looming over him, listening to his obviously distressed words. Sighing once more, she replied "It's fine, but don't run off all of a sudden", the lack of emotion or tone returning to her voice. In honestly, the low expectations, or rather, the complete lack of any expectations whatsoever prepared Aspen for most setbacks, this festival thus far posing little more than a mildly amusing waste of time, the promise of a "fun festival" particularly lost on her. Well, in a sense, at least, an idea that was somewhat uncharacteristic of the unfeeling Slayer beginning to take shape in her mind, perhaps stemming directly from her morbid intrigue with the guy. "Well, the festival is not yet over yet ...". Aspen extended her hand in an offer to help Theo up from the ground. "... meaning you can explain what is wrong to me over a drink, Treasure Hunter. Come on, or do you wanna lie there and pity yourself all day?", she smirked subtly in a taunt that was, in contrast, all the more characteristic of the Slayer.
