His framed picture was resting on the desk close to him, so the shaman could take a look at his old team. It was a stingy feeling in his chest, a feeling of homesickness and loss, but it also brought him pleasant and comfy memories of his adventures with them. In a way, after a while of just hanging about the guild hall and being for himself - directly taking quests from Heero like some kind of errand boy - Sorano-imouto had offered him to join their group to get more acquainted with the guild. It was because of them that he held his guild in such a high regard, and it was because of them that his soul was that of a true Fairy. If there was a way for him to thank them for everything they did under these circumstances and with his team being just him now after Sorano-imouto’s disappearance, he wouldn’t hesitate or wait a single breath.
Just opening his eyes slowly and gazing upon the picture taken by the previous Guildmaster was a stream of nostalgia; Mura’s face was poking out from Sorano-imouto’s shoulder, and Hana’s face was on the other shoulder with a bright, blushing smile. Julius and Gamon were holding each other’s shoulders and smiling too, and Corliss was standing under them with a shy smile herself. Those were quite the days… he was a preteen back when he joined the guild, so being left in peace and silence and thinking back all those years ago made the shaman feel rather old. He was only 20 years old, but he had probably experienced more than enough for one lifetime. And yet, he had never wished to say the words ‘I have done my part’, for those words were reserved for those whose lives had ended. He was still living, so he would not say those words… obvious enough. Now that the statement aforementioned had been clarified enough for young brains, here was what was happening:
Mura was actually waiting for Althea’s arrival. Mind you that he had fallen asleep after looking at the picture of his team again; not really professional of him, but who cared…
He had gotten a call from Talonia. A man was searching for capable wizards to solve an issue of sorts in his house. He said that he had a lizard issue of a ridiculous character, and given the tone in his voice, Mura was afraid that he had some kind of huge lizard salamander in his basement or something along the lines of that. Hey, he knew a couple who would do very well in such a situation; Dragon Slayers! And he knew quite a good chunk of them, but one of them hadn’t been seen by him in quite a while - perhaps due to business with other missions. Althea Eventide, his ‘too-quickly-growing-to-be-a-small-kouhai-forever-‘ mentee who finally reported her call for duty in the guild recently. That meant that he could use her assistance in his mission and see how much she had grown magic-wise, for he predicted combat to be a part of this quest given to him by this strange, unnamed person…
Yes, he was unnamed. Yes, that would raise red flags, but in the end, the guild were their own judges and judged the situations accordingly to what they experienced. That was why it was important to go to Talonia and find out more about this stranger; perhaps asking around and gaining help from civilians would help the Fairy Tail wizards unveil the identity of their client before they confronted him. Yes, it was a him given by the tone and voice of his through the lacrima phone; there was a lacrima box with an installed phone for official Fairy Tail business directly to the office, and the Ace offices had their own too (although Arcadia was far more used to just using her personal iLac). Mura’s iLac was still strapped to his left wrist like his Oracle used to be back in the days… ah, good times indeed.
“Y’know, Althea-chan has been away for quite a while… maybe she was undergoing special training. Hey, maybe she did that just to be able to mop the floor with you, hehe…!”
“Oh, shut up… as if she’d have a chance. Firstly, I’m a ghost; secondly, she would have to beat Mura simultaneously too, if that stupid idea of yours came to fruition.”
“Oh, it’s not such a stupid idea! C’mon, they’re officially mentor and mentee! Mura took her under his wing! It’s only common to test her vigor against him-“
“I said SHUT UP!”
The dragon ghost took a chunk of Kyuken’s spirit ball form off of him like biting a bun to shut him up. It helped, causing Kyuken to cry out in pain and fly around the room, surprisingly not waking up Mura from his nap. He needed his nap right now, for he had finished reading through the archives concerning the events of Fairy Tail under Kiku’s mastership and had now begun reading the archives from Simon Baggins. After him, it would be Ken… then a person whom Mura was more than familiar with. Heero.
He had a lot to read through.
