The hollers of other children outside the Red Dragon Inn made Mai all the more restless. Beautiful days were boring for the God Slayer. She could eat the breeze, sure, but it tasted bland and flat. There was no chance of rain or lightning either, leaving her wondering what to do. She had already been laying in her bed for the past three hours. She was so used to Miss Luna's instruction that she woke up before the sun had even risen, eaten a quick breakfast, and rushed off to the proper guild hall of Sabertooth before remembering that Miss Luna had left the night prior. Even now, laying in her bed after a slow, mopey walk back to the Red Dragon Inn, she felt a tear well up in her eye. Miss Luna said that her job would not take long, possibly even returning later in the day or the next day, so Mai had no desire to go on a job of her own. Work was boring anyways, she thought. The non-guild guards were all scared of attempting to duel her, so she could not even train anyways.
"There's nothing to do if Miss Luna or Kenna or the other guild people aren't here!" she shouted, still lying on her bed. "I'd even be okay with Amalie being here because then I can practice my fwooshy-fwoosh magic, or at least get some tasty Frost Lightning, but Amalie's always with Miss Luna." She slowly grabbed one of her pillows, screaming softly into it as she kicked her feet around, messing up the bed she had so meticulously made to show Miss Luna her learning. Finally, she sat up with a start. "I still gotta find something to do! I know! Maybe Ratatoskr will want to play tag!"
She sprung out of her bed, nearly ready to sprint out of her door before she realized that her bed was still messy. She re-made it, though she sniffled at how it was not as perfect as it had been just minutes before, but she still slipped on her shoes and ran out the door, doing her best to ensure that she didn't slam it and break the wall again. She carefully looked at the doors, seeing the door marked "Luna Mira" right across from the door she had exited, which bore the name "Mai Stormschild". "Let's see...Miss Luna said that if I want to get to the guild hall, I go left, which means..." realizing this, she ran off to her right, ready to head for the portal to Yggdrasil. She quickly circled back to her room to grab the pouch of sweets for herself and various acorns and other nuts for Ratatoskr before rushing back off to the right once more. Seeing the hidden door that led to the Inn's interior, which would lead her into the town to find the portal, she smiled, slowing down to toss a small, round chocolate candy into her mouth. A moment after she had tossed it in the air, she was unexpectedly hit by a door swinging open, knocking the girl to the ground. She fell on her butt, the candy plinking helplessly off the top of her head.
She stared at the person who had emerged from the door that had made its collision with her. "Sorry! Miss Luna always told me to make sure not to walk too close to these doors because they can hit me if I'm not paying attention!" She then came to a realization. "Wait...if you're back here and in one of the rooms, that means you're a part of Sabertooth, right? I don't recognize you..." She pressed her knuckles against the side of her head. "Maybe Miss Luna or Kenna mentioned you at some point, I don't remember. Ah! If Miss Luna did mention you, please don't tell her that I forgot! Anyways, I'm Mai! Mai Stormschild! Who're you?" She smiled, tilting her head. She was still on the ground, but that did not matter to her. Maybe this person could alleviate her boredom.
