- Luna's present appearance:
Through the lens of her Smart knew Holographic glasses, Luna studied the information she had mailed to her through the Lacrima Net as it came in an audio form reading out the file describing the situation as she held a loose grip of the reigns of the saddle on the dark mustang. It was not uncommon for certain wizards to be called onto a job, usually due to their reputation or good standing with many individuals. In Luna's experience there were typically three main reasons for this, first of all is if the job is urgent and needs to be taken care of swiftly and can't afford to wait for a mage to take the job. Second is sometimes a job requires a specific specialty and calling out known mages with that skill set can save a lot of time, and in rare times the price. Thirdly and what Luna is suspecting the case, when a job is dangerous but initially taken on by someone that is lowly estimated and the clients want assurance that the job will be taken care of properly. Luna came to this conclusion after she read the information she had available regarding a demon enhancing and mutating various insects posing a threat.
Meanwhile Amelia was riding in the buggy the horse was pulling laying with her crossed arms behind her head and her feet up on the side railing. "So what, are we on babysitting duty or are we responding to a actual threat?"
the artificial life form said before letting out a yawn. Luna shrugged as she had no clue. "Well the file says a name but not someone we've heard of, and the affluent locals did ask for me and the Rune Knights didn't object. But no one dismissed either motif as the bugs are a real threat regardless."
Luna said as she did not want to take any stance so soon. "Well, you'd think they'd call a demon slayer instead of a god slayer."
Luna groaned at the implication, while there was no one around to listen she did not want the news to be made public so soon yet. Amelia shrugged off Luna's reaction and kept on with her thought. "Either way, hope he doesn't take it hard, you never know with these military types. There are a few that see legal guild mages as undisciplined liabilities."
Luna sighed as she was getting annoyed with the Gynoid's theory or take on the matter. "That's a bit overdramatic. Besides officially the Rune Knights are similar to legal guilds. But let's not count this guy out, perhaps the reason I was called was just cause I was in the neighborhood."
She said as she recalled the earlier business she had in Beanstalk village. "Right, you're brother's girl's parents wanted to meet his family, but that is a bleeding mess so started with you."
Amelia put bluntly as silence greeted her in response as the horse continued on the path.
Luna thought on the scenario and how things were incredibly awkward at first given that her directly younger brother Leon wasn't always in contact since he left River Village. "Well the meeting should've been postponed, Leon barely has had any time to process that our mother is alive, a fairy, and we have another sister, and the change in relationship. Don't get me wrong I like Ema, she's a good woman for Leon, but she shouldn't have let her parents force Leon into something like this. I'm just glad they are at least decent people and understanding once I explained the whole thing."
Luna said as she remembered her her brother's timid nature. Leon had social anxiety that was incredibly unpredictable, sometimes he was able to barely hold a conversation on his best day, and sometimes he could barely say three words at a time on his worst, he always used his various art forms as a means of releasing the anxiety and often as a way to commune with others. Luna remembered doing all she could in the past to try and help him be comfortable with socializing and expressing himself.
Midway into the meeting she got the call that she was wanted on this particular job to work with the upcoming Rune Knight. All she knew from the official was that his character was not in question, but rather given the urgency and dangers did warrant the official wanting some reassurance.
Eventually Luna saw on the map in the corner of the HUD that she was approaching the meetup point with the Rune Knight, and as she closed in she began to see the individual. The horse slowed down as it got closer to the man before coming to a stop.
Luna removed her smart glasses, folding them and hanging the frame off the collar of her blouse as she softly smiled towards Aiden. "Aiden Ainsley? I'm Luna Mira, a Sabertooth mage called to assist you on this job."
Luna lifted one leg over before slowly getting off the horse before unclipping her purse from the side. Meanwhile the artificial life form lazily fell out of the buggy and merely dusted the dirt off herself as she stood up. "I'm Amelia Thorn, Luna's platonic life companion and work wife. Not associated with any guild personally."
Luna sighed as she knew Amelia was doing, trying to avoid making it look like Luna's enslaving another sentient being by addressing herself as a gynoid immediately but she did not want to pick up that same old argument at the moment. Luna reached inside her purse and pulled out a carrot offering it to the horse who graciously accepted as Luna followed it by pulling out a small wad of bills. "Thanks for the sudden service Gus, here's for my tab and keep change as a tip."
Luna said before sliding the wad into a pouch on the saddle. The horse happily neighed before telepathically communing to Luna "Always a pleasure miss, regular customers like you give this business a good vibe."
before the horse turned around slowly, waiting until the buggy was all the way around before bolting off at high speed.
Luna turned around back to face the tall knight she was tasked to work with. "Forgive my unprofessional appearance, my more appropriate attire is at the tailors or seamstress and I was not expecting to be called in, and I wouldn't even have the time to get ready considering I was called last night and I was barely in the area."
Luna said before she opened her senses towards the mountain range. "But this shouldn't be a hard task, should be out in time for supper."
Amelia rolled her eyes. "Doesn't that watch thing you got from Magnolia give you the ability to go to a space station and return at the same time you left?"
She said gesturing towards the Infinite Improbability Chronometer. Luna bit her lip as she was starting to get annoyed by Amelia at times. "Again, aside from my gear and tools not on my person, which at the moment is just Zygmunt, nothing there to grab."
Amelia threw her hands up ready to start another argument but she gave up. "Just saying, if you can stop time to go to a space station, you can't say you don't have time to change clothes."
Luna dismissed the argument of the gynoid as she returned her focus to the task at hand. "Anyways, Aiden, I'm aware of the task and the stakes. Ready to go when you are."
She said with graceful confidence.
