    On a lovely afternoon, Leo found himself among the crowd for a small and equally lovely event appropriate for the month it was being held on. Yes, February is the month of love and its 14th day was the chief day for celebrating love and life. Which is why Leo agreed to take part in Mura, the current guild master of Fairy Tail and an old friend, in his request. That request being to accompany one of the new members of their little family around, and the guild master thought it would be a good idea to make them go together to Rose Garden where a seemingly wedding convention is taking place. Admittedly, Leo was hesitant at first because he did prefer to spend to keep things quiet and relatively silent, especially his existence which was becoming a more difficult endeavour for more and more people are beginning to know who he was, and it wasn’t through because he told them. Nevertheless, Mura presented some convincing and valid points which is why he agreed, admittedly, reluctantly at first. However, he could use this moment to spend time with Lina. Though it was at this moment that he thought that he should think of other ways to spend time with Lina aside from events such as these, it began to feel as if he has been failing as a parent recently prompting the old man to look down to the ground from his seat in an outdoor cafe that was put up for the special occasion. Lina saw this change of expression from her father and reached out to him to see if he was ok. He slowly lifted his head up to meet his daughter’s eyes who asked if he was alright. And upon seeing the face of his loved one, with the smile she had on her lips, and the innocence in her eyes, an expression of happiness Leo was suddenly feeling alright, it was as if Lina knew what was bothering him and immediately made him feel that everything was ok.

    Happily, Leo sat up straight and placed his gentle hand on the small one’s head and nodded. Everything was ok now, and he could always find another time to take Lina somewhere soon for he had eyed a humble job back in the hall wherein he can take Lina with him for it.

    Being brought back to the present reality, Leo looked at a brochure that was highlighting all the events and activities in this “convention” that was apparently spearheaded by a company that makes chocolates who are now trying to take things a step further by performing catering services and baking cakes. He was personally interested in the cakes they will be serving today in an attempt to further hone his own baking skills and take his locally-famous Leocakes to new heights. As he looked on, Lina was peeking from beside him and was trying to see what she would like to try and apparently, it was everything but was wise enough to keep her cute little hands away from doing a marriage ceremony, thanks to having bugged the souls, refugees, and helpers in their old mansion in the woods, especially the head butler Angelo. But with so many weddings happening around them, Lina couldn’t help but be curious what was his and her mother’s wedding like.

    While that was a topic Leo would like to avoid memories and images couldn’t help but make their way back to his mind. Of a clearing, a wind breeze all around them, a woman in pure white, matching her white hair in front of him… It was happy, and painful at the same time. Letting out a sigh, Leo simply looked at his daughter and said, it was… windy. Confused, Lina tilted her head ever so slightly to one side before lifting it back up to ask more questions. Questions that will never be heard because Leo placed a finger to her lips and giggled, telling her we should go get their companion in order to get things started. So he got up his chair and approached his companion with whom they will be spending this day with today.

    Post by Kumiko on 27th March 2020, 7:23 am

    It was a pretty special day for Fairy Tail's newest and almost cutest member. Kumiko would have been sent by Mura to participate in some kind of strange ceremony between people. She had wanted to really stay at the headquarters and spend the day napping in her room or bugging the receptionist again, but it seemed somewhat important given that the task was given to her by the guildmaster himself of all people. And so it was on this moderately normal and warm day that a small fox girl with her tail swaying with each energetic step would come across the fork in the road which the guidance of Mura helped her overcome with very little difficulty. Clutched in her hand was a brochure of the company's that had been sent en masse to just about anybody who might have had the slightest idea of housing space on a job board for their advertising. It was a company that had dealt with one of Kumiko's favorite snack, chocolate. They seemed to be more interested in branching out, and would be inviting folks of all sizes, ages, genders and any other kind of descriptor that would be used to identify a person.

    COME ONE, COME ALL! WE'RE SEARCHING FOR ALL ABLE BODIED WIZARDS OR PEOPLE TO PARTAKE IN THE COMPANY'S NEWEST VENTURE! EXPERIENCE THE WEDDING YOU'VE ALWAYS DREAMED OF, OR ATTENDING A FIVE STAR RESORT WITH A ONE STAR PRICE! GOURMET FOOD, DESIGNER DRESSES, AND A DANCE UNDER A STARLIT NIGHT! COME AND MAKE YOUR DREAMS OUR REALITY! FOR MONEY!

    It was a pretty unique and rather interesting concept. Kumiko obviously was far too young to understand about what marriage was, but she could at least understand the concept of filling herself with the best chocolate cake made by (in her mind) the best people who made said chocolate. It was why she even agreed to take the job on in the first place. Of course, she probably wouldn't be married in the first place anyway. She still had to find her father with the help of the guild, after all!

    Kumiko looked at the hastily drawn map given to her by Mura to check on her progress was at. If her hunch was correct, she was just near the site where the company would have hosted their event at. The small foxling trotted down the beaten path light on her feet like every other child save for the ears and tail. And we'll, that whole "accidentally ate a magical artifact" thing. Kumiko approached the entrance to the convention with rather curious eyes. There were some employees mulling about in Butler and maid uniforms, each housing a heart shaped pin that was visible on their breast pocket. Once noticed her approach and even greeted her with a pleasant and smooth now. One that was reciprocated with one of the child's own.

    "Ah, welcome to our fine establishment! Your partners are just inside! Please hurry inside and meet them with all haste!"

    Kumiko smiled and would increase her pace going inside. The sunlight shifted to plain and artificial light, powered by electricity and the soft him of the bulbs overhead which her cabin ears could just barely pick up. The change in scenery made her take pause to absorb all this new information at. Her tail flickered behind her out of instinct while taking a looksies of what she was dealing with. A lone man was just away from her, looking at the cakes that were so ceremoniously displayed. She didn't blame him, they looked incredibly tempting to take for herself though Mura had warned her against just taking something without paying for it with currency. Things worked so much stranger here than back in Midi. The wore his long, silver colored hair down with the tips just reaching about neck level. He wore a rugged and short beard that looked well kept around his unclenched jaw. In all honesty, Kumiko thought he would have been lifted straight from one of those books where people hunted monsters, gained fame, and received a doting princess for their efforts for the realm. Around his legs stood a child, a girl that Kumiko took interest in. It would be the first girl her age (or near it) that she would have come across since leaving her home for a few months now! She was eager to meet a possible new friend provided she was shy or put off on why there was another girl running around that was a yokai. She approached the pair with a beaming smile and an eager look on her face to get going and shovel as much chocolate into her mouth as it could manage.

    "Ohaiyou!" she greeted both, raising an hand in the air as her ears twitched upon hearing some commotion in the kitchen nearby. "Are you two my partners? The Fairy Tail guildmaster sent me here on my first job! I'm Kumiko~" she placed a hand on her breast to introduce herself, puffing it out a bit to seem as though abd strong as this guy was. Of course, she couldn't match his rugged appearance or magic for that very matter, but that didn't mean she couldn't try! With that display of power established, Kumiko would move onto more pressing and urgent matters.

    "Are they serving cake yet? Did I miss it? I hope I didn't miss it..."

    After Leo had gotten up from their table, their companion arrived from opposite them their companion. The person in question was a young fox girl. An interesting creature, one that Lina was most excited to meet. From her greeting and finally outfit, he could tell that she was once a resident of Midi. In fact, he thinks she was born there after further inspection and was thankful for the years he spent roaming around Earthrealm.

    She had begun greeting them in the traditional Midian way which Leo was able to understand. However, never the one to stand out or impress anyone simply greeted her back normally, paired up with a slow nod appearing like a small courteous bow. “Good morning to you too. I’m… Leo.” he said, taking that small pause to try and remind himself that no one should know who he is, a lot of people already do. Though he would argue with himself that people in this day and age wouldn’t exactly know who he is anymore, there are still people out there that are looking for him, watching him, and would use anything and anyone against him. He must stay hidden, so much so that he is consciously masking his own magic from everyone else.

    Moving forward with their introductions, he swayed his hand toward his daughter to introduce her. “And this is my daughter, Lina.” he continued all the while Lina was hopping and wiggling in place, waiting for the perfect opportunity for her to spring into action and this was after that introduction.

    Lina screamed and happily rushed forward to hug Kumiko, obviously excited to have met another around her age. Her circle of friends expanded from her friends at school, Arcadia, and now Kumiko, and Leo was fully aware of this way of thinking of his daughter, honestly not minding how they were interacting. He found it refreshing that Lina is making friends, especially at times like these.

    After the energetic hug, Lina pulled away and held both her hands, cheerfully exclaiming how happy she was to have met her and calling her Kumi-chan the nickname the little fox girl will be stuck with for the time being. That is, until she grows up.

    With the introductions out of the way, it appeared time for what the day was all about, having the honor of being Kumiko’s companion on her first job ever which she was evidently excited for as Leo can see, looking for the cakes they will taste today.

    With a smile Leo said “You’re just in time for cake, Kumiko. Come, it’s this way.” pointing towards the general direction of where their cake was. “From what I gather, it’s a chocolate cake, topped and iced with cookies and cream and has a chocolate glaze and filling.” he continued, describing what their target was because Leo had something in mind, knowing this was her first mission in Fairy Tail. “I would be honored if you would lead us. Since we’re both… fairly new to Fairy Tail, and I’ve already led a job once.” he proposed all the while bending his knees to go down and pick Lina who has been rendered immovable and seemingly a vegetable after hearing her father describe the cake they were going to eat. “Besides, I’m going to have to carry Lina for a while since she’s still… day-dreaming.” he added as he was gently patting on Lina’s back.

    Wow! Kumiko's partner sure was old! Was he really old? He did have white hair and a beard like one of those heroes in her fantasy books but looks could be deceiving! Mura and his friends did think that she was like over a thousand years old or something. His armor gave him the look of a well seasoned magic warrior that had seen his fair share of battle. Kumiko herself had some battle herself, if trying to swat a fly counted as such. She was woefully under prepared for any kind of fighting though she did have a pretty hand card up her sleeve. Nobody ever suspected the kid of launching attacks of her own.

    The man introduced himself as Leo, as Kumiko placed a hand on her chest and offered the a man a respectful bow of the head. The child squirming around by his leg would be named Lina, which Kumiko immediately took a liking too. The way she was overflowing with energy reminded her of the other kids back at the shrine back home in Lower Midian. She felt the young girl's arms coil around her and squeeze as hard as they could. Of course, she wasn't constricted but Kumiko's tail twitched a little as the distant recollection of memories resurfaced in her mind. Sure everybody fought, but they were family. "It's nice to meet you too!~" she answered back with as much energy as Lina had. Had she met her match in how cute one could be? Probably! Lina ended the end and went on about how cool it would be that they'd be friends, even granting for the nickname of Kumi-chan. It was cute, though Leo might be able to tell that something was kind of festering in her head. She had that look in her eyes of somebody that was reminded of something that was long gone but still missed all the same.

    "Totally! I bet you're the strongest mage in Fairy Tail, like your dad." Kumiko teased her, the golden colored tail behind her swaying to the left while shooting a knowing glance at Leo. She might be young but the kid certainly wasn't stupid. With introductions finished, her partner got the foxling back on track and reminded the two kids of the reason they came here for! Cake! Well, no. The whole event thing. But there was cake nearby! It was nice to see somebody sharing Kumiko's enormous sweet tooth, which made Lina mimic a statue with how infatuated with the idea of tasting the delectable morsel of confectionery goodness. The way was shown while he would give the child a rundown on what to expect from the cake. If there was ever a glazed over look on Kumiko's face, it was from the sheer amount of sugar she was about to consume. Her mouth watered just at the description of the cake. Boy, she was going to have a field day with this thing! But then Leo asked of her a rather strange request. One she had not been expecting any time soon.

    "Me...Lead us?" Kumiko repeated. She had never really taken the reigns of any kind of a job like this. Happiness poured into her heart as she would stand proudly, puffing out her chest in front of Leo and the ever frozen in time Lina. "I can do that! Follow me and we'll get to glory in no time flat." Pause for dramatic effect. And leaving...

    The girl lead the way down the hall and towards the banquet hall with the ever established cake. A majestic find it was, with as much stuff a growing about probably shouldn't ingest in more than one sitting. Kumiko's eyes widened in awe at the sight of this thing! She guided the three of them to the chair surrounded it with a few slices cut neatly into perfect little pieces for sharing. Of course, if there was anybody who deserved the first slice, it would be the ever excitable Lina! Kumiko had some experience with keeping the younger members of the family happy, which typically meant they get the first of everything. "Lina!" She called, picking up a plate and waiting for the child to come scurrying over towards her. The kitsune gently picked a bite sized piece from her plate and tore it away from the slice with her fork. The icing was smooth and looked even better cut like this. "Say ah!" she said, leaning forward to deliver the morsel of cake into the younger kid's mouth. The delivery hit its mark and soon, Lina would have the first taste of the cake all to herself. Kumiko sometimes help her get some, laughing at how utterly adorable the child was and taking much larger bites for herself on a separate plate. No need to steal them off of hers.

    ""Enjoying the cake?~" Kumi asked Leo after a while, completely full of her fill: two and a half slices. She likely could have downed more much but the sugar was just too much for her. Was there any ice cream? Soda? She could just get a sickness here and be done for the day. That mission did honestly keep her from getting too full. Once he answered, Kumiko gazed around the large gathering place for the next station or activity that would be required of them to partake in. Hopefully it wasn't more cake.

    It was such a delightful and peaceful sight to see the rapport between the two young children. Such a sight was rare in the Leo’s circle. Mostly due to the lack of children in said circle. But he would remember the old times. The times back in the day when everyone in the guild was relatively young and such faces filled the hall with cheer, stories, challenges, and above all, clamours for cake. Cake that he would provide. Truly times have changed, and he was ok with it, the age today shows promise as he would constantly tell himself for not only is it secured with the likes of Mura, Arcadia, and Nessa, Leo can also see it being secured in Lina and now Kumiko. He couldn’t tell what magic she wielded, but she shows much promise if her physiology is anything to go by. Leo may not know much about the fox people of Midi, but he has heard that they are gifted with potent magical powers from birth, that is only ever strengthened as they progress through life. Quite an interesting thought that he pondered as he looked onto the children who seem to be having fun, even teasing at how they are the strongest mages in Fairy Tail, and naturally in topics like this, Leo would feel uncomfortable. As if they are hinting on the fact that they know who he is, that he has a past that stretches out to the very beginning. Of course, he wouldn’t want to dwell on these thoughts for long, for who knows who might be peering into his mind. No, he wouldn’t like to take the chance for any unwanted people to know who he is, lest the people important to him get harmed, just to get to him. Which is why Leo has spent most of the time, making sure to mask and hide any that would link him to the Dragonbane name, even his thoughts and magic.

    Which would lead the old swordsman to focus on the brighter side of things. That perhaps maybe Kumiko was only joking when she mentioned being the strongest in Fairy Tail because it would hardly be even true in this time, with the fact that many of Fairy Tail’s more esteemed members are famous wizard saints. No, this was only to incite conversation between the two, which Lina happily replied with a resounding and enthusiastic “No.” a reply that took even Leo off guard, awaiting what she had to say next. The young daughter actually followed her reply up with a heart-warming statement, saying that she would only want to be strong enough to help those in need, the little guys. A response that made Leo immensely proud.

    Continuing on to the matter at hand, Leo was delighted to see the determination in Kumiko’s eyes and gestures in leading them today. It was refreshing to know that there are natural born leaders in these times, for he only saw and met a handful of people, all of which were interesting, inspiring and uplifting. Leaders. And on their way, there were numerous delectable desserts all lined up to be tested by various people, yet there, at the end of it all, stood the one assigned to them. The most glorious piece of cake he saw in the entire area, as he had the opportunity to pick it out himself because earlier while waiting for Kumiko to arrive, Leo was chatting up one of the event organizers, letting him know that he has one insightful palate when it came to cakes. He even had the time to bake him up a sample which impressed him. And with that display of skill, Leo was asked to sample one of their masterpieces.

    Now in its presence, Leo sat down slowly, setting Lina at the seat next to him, putting her in the middle of him and Kumiko. The young one’s circumstances were not improved being this close to the source of her current condition, with the excitement of its consumption ever increasing with every moment that passed by.Lina’s trance like state would be broken however by the call of her new friend. She would quickly snap her head towards her and she would exclaim in excitement as a piece of the slice on a fork hovered in front of her, quickly gobbling it up at the call to say ah. But Lina wasn’t a simple eater, especially when it came to cake.As the daughter of a baker, she learned to savour every bit of the pastry in her mouth, chewing it slowly, getting every bit of flavour she can that all ended with a satisfied “Hhhhmmmm”. She was also quick enough to return the favour to Kumiko when she took a piece of the slice that was in front of her, telling her friend that it was her turn to ingest in some delicious cake, slowly offer it up to her, making sure she would get in her mouth, which she perfectly did.

    Seeing the two young ones enjoy themselves placed the old man’s mind at ease. Allowing him the time and peace to partake on his own slice which came as advertised. It truly was a masterpiece. The flavours were blending perfectly with each other and the bread was soft, not too chewy as to get in the way of focusing on the flavours, but not too soft as it would lead the cake to break down and crumble at the slightest touch. The flavor was indeed strong, including its delicate aftertaste which he had washed down with wine he brought himself in a flask, obviously unable to share it with the young people. Although he was considerate enough to ask the people for a glass of water for the two children. When asked about how it was, Leo smiled and gently replied “It is perfect. The sweetness is just right as brought about by the chocolate and cream, not so much as it would make you sick. The fudge really holds it together along with the bread of the cake. I’d say it was as they advertised, a masterpiece.” After answering, he would pull out the same brochure from before and took a look at the other activites the convention had in store, even handing it out to Kumiko to let her take her pick as leader of their job.
