    It was a painful walk back to Magnolia after the climax to that mission… a climax that he had experienced quite a handful of times, rarely in comparison to something else. Here’s why…

    Battling a sea monster of that size today just begged for him to merge with Zirconis, but once again, he was reminded of how incompatible his fragile human body was with the soul of a previous pseudo-Elder Dragon. It was sooooooooo much easier to merge with the soul of another human like Kyuken, but Mura could still feel his muscles left a tiny bit sore after performing the spell that allowed them to fuse.

    With Zirconis, however, his muscles crackled for a few days afterwards…

    And in this fine morning, he stood in front of the mirror at his home, eyeing himself while Mythica was out for the time being. His tired face was a trademark at this point, but his arms… they were rather mediocre to look at. Mind you, this was all from his own perspective, and he was starting to loath his lack of clearly-contoured grenades sealed between his bicep bones and skin, just emitting with masculine energy…

    Maybe the image in his head was over the top, but his arms were thinner than the ice he walked on every time he talked with another woman near his wife. Despite his position as a Wizard Saint, his role as Guildmaster of Fairy Tail, his magical prowess and skills with his ninjaken, he developed quite slower than most around him - before, he rarely noticed it, but now that the guild was starting to fill up with taller, more handsome nuclear sites, Mura couldn’t help but feel somewhat self-aware. Maybe he should just ignore it… maybe…

    Or maybe he was starting to think of all of this because of Zirconis. There was a practical reason to try and get gains, right?

    Yeah, that would likely be for the best.

    Therefore, the next day when he went to the guild hall, Mura grabbed a piece of paper and a pen as he wrote his request:

    I’m in need of training aimed to increase muscularity for combat reasons. If you can aid me efficiently, I’ll highly appreciate it. Consider this a more personal plead, but I’ll still compensate from my personal treasury. Dearly, Mura.

    Then he smacked the paper on the job board like any other quest. He would glare at it for a while, awkward as this was his first pleaded request ever.

    Luckily for Mura, he wouldn’t have to wait very long.

    Before the guildmaster of Fairy Tail even had a chance to walk away, he would feel a presence come up beside him. The hand of Vandrad reached forward and tore the paper from the board, dark orbs scanning over the written words of the self-proclaimed Ghost Slayer. The prince had just finished eating a short while before and was coming to glance over the jobs for anything curious. He had imagined he wouldn’t find anything too tantalizing and, once that was all set and done, he would return to his room and finish up some work on the patching he’d planned for his software. He was wholly surprised to find the guildmaster there, set up before the board as well. Perhaps the young man was looking for a job to go out on? Yet before he could greet Mura, he spotted what looked like a fairly informal job pinned to the board. It wasn’t unusual for different parchment to be used but this looked like it’d been a request put in on a whim, a spur of the moment action.

    Imagine the prince’s further shock to discover not only was it a request from Mura but it was a job that had almost nothing to do with any kind of dangerous mission. No, it seemed the guildmaster had grown tired of his small, lithe frame and was looking to add on some musculature. How interesting. Vandrad raised his gaze from the paper to Mura, considering him with a serious gaze. "Increasing muscle and mass isn’t just a matter of training. It requires an overhaul of one’s way of thinking, of eating, of communing with their mind, body and soul. It isn’t as simple as picking up weights and doing a couple of push ups every day. It’s commitment to better one’s self, to empower the temple that is your body with absolute physical strength,” he told the guildmaster gruffly, which wasn’t his unusual tone. But it wasn’t demeaning -- in fact, it was almost like Vandrad was already speaking out of a place of educational authority.

    And why wouldn’t he? He’d trained numerous soldiers for Bellum on how to better increase their physical and magical strengths. This was just revisiting all his years of service in the military. He folded up the piece of paper and stuffed it into his back pocket as he turned to face Mura fully, arms crossing over his chest. "If you think you can crack it, I’ll train you. No payment necessary -- consider it a favor to you and to Fairy Tail. You took me in when you didn’t need to and your guild has provided housing, sustenance and financial gain, as well as the opportunities to better my own abilities. The least I can do is help my guildmaster increase his body mass index.” They were all very complimentary and kind words but Vandrad approached them from a business-like direction, as if he was conducting a transaction. "Training begins now. Follow me,” he instructed, flicking his head in the direction of the training room and leading the way.

    "I will craft a dietary plan for you after this first training session. If you wish to put on bulk quickly and efficiently, you will stick to it completely. Don’t worry -- once you’ve put on the appropriate poundage, you can amend the plan yourself so long as you counter it with suitable training. My methods are considered tough by most people that have trained under me, as I am not here to be your friend. I am here to push you past your limitations. Morning training begins promptly at seven in the morning, not a minute later. Evening training is at the same time. We will focus on different muscles each day, to ensure you are building all around and not overworking previously worked muscles. I’m not sure if you’ve ever experienced rigorous training before but I will warn you ahead of time; you are going to be sore and you are going to despite it at first. Push through the pain and ache and you will be rewarded.” He delivered his speech to his guildmaster as they moved through the guild, heading to the training room that Vandrad practically called home.

    The door opened for him and Mura and the prince walked back into the room he’d occupied only about an hour prior. He pointed to a spot in the center of the room, silently directing Mura to stand in place before him. "Training will differ depending on what we’re trying to improve but rest assured, we will be sparring. I cannot truly estimate your increase in physical strength until I feel it myself and the best way to experience that is to get hit. Now… give me a hundred push ups.”

    Mura barely got to step away before one particular Fairy Tail Wizard had his eyes on the shorter Guildmaster’s request. He turned his head to spot Vandrad who didn’t waste a second to explain the very true meaning of increasing muscle. At that point, it was clear to the shaman that Vandrad wanted to fulfill his request, and merely by being reminded of said Energy Mage’s build, Mura’s eyes began to shine softly. A light of hope beamed through him with Vandrad as his savior, his guide to an evolution.

    … He made it sound a lot. Like a lot. Mura would have to transform not only his body, but also his mind to grasp the fruits of such a drive. How long would it take, then? Or would that matter?

    No, no, no! He shouldn’t ask questions like that! He clenched his fists terribly harsh, for he tried to shake away quite a habit of his - not taking routine-like things as seriously at first. Man, he felt like a 13-year old again in this state. His gaze was locked onto Vandrad all the time, his eyebrows sharp and his face pointy with will, willing to accept what was going to happen and what he had to do in order to break out of his shota-like identity. Hearing that Vandrad would willingly train him out of gratitude for what the guild had done for him only fueled the shaman’s desire to begin right away. While Vandrad may have talked to him from a professional standpoint, Mura took everything he said to heart as he would any Fairy Tail Mage.

    “… Yessir!” Mura replied, a phrase he had previously only said to none other than the late, previous Guildmaster Heero. Man, this feeling brought him back to his novice days in the guild, constantly put on a table with past guildmates to learn about Fiore, the country’s cultures, currencies and other practical things like how to approach and take requests from people and papers, on top of all the physical and spiritual training that he received under Master Kanix, Eris, Ezreal and the others. Mura followed Vandrad intently while thinking back to those days.

    … Dietary plan? Wait, did this mean that Mura would have to, perhaps, take a break from sashimi? Pempura? Udon? Ramen? Yakitori? White rice? Rice balls? Unagi? That would be a difficult habit to break… but hey, old habits were best broken by substitution with new habits. He just hoped that… well, that he would stick to it. While he thought that, who knew what his subconsciousness would do.

    At the training room upstairs, Vandrad made it clear to him that this was going to be rough and that he wouldn’t hold Mura’s hand like a pedagogue. Morning training was set at seven in the morning, and evening training was - clear to Mura’s deduction - at seven in the evening. He could remember that by heart - if he didn’t have that ability, then he wouldn’t be a shrewd Guildmaster, would he? He felt confident that he could push through and gain from Vandrad’s training schedule, reminding himself that it wasn’t the first time that he had trained ever. It was still the same core principle.

    Push through the pain and ache, and you will be rewarded.

    As Mura was pointed towards the center of the training room, he walked towards it obediently. Vandrad informed him that they would spar at one point to check his development, but the first work that Mura was going to do was… a hundred push-ups. Something he hadn’t done before, shockingly.

    “Ooooooooooooooooooooh! This brings back memories~!” Kyuken’s ghostly, samurai voice echoed as the blue spirit ball head dazzled around Mura, “I almost want to join, but… I think it’d be cheating if we merged bodies. You’re training your body, not your magic.”

    “And you’re also a ghost…” Mura replied before laying on his stomach and planting his hands on the floor to push himself up. The first ten push-ups took way less than a second per push-up, while the next batch of 10 push-ups took about half a second. The next 20 push-ups took about a second per push-up.

    “Wait, Mura, aren’t you faster than thi-“

    “Magic, Kyuken!”

    “O-Oh, yeah, that’s right! By the gods, how reliant you’ve been on that… barely noticed it.”

    “Hrrnng…”

    He wanted to look like an adult now. He wasn’t going to be a short manboy any longer. He was going to put effort into upping his compatibility with Zirconis. All of those reasons backed him up along the push-ups, motivating him to continue. Sweat began slowly trickling down as the last 40 push-ups required a little while. It was starting to go slower and slower… around the 60th push-up, Mura felt his arms lock. It was as if they begged him to take a break-

    They wouldn’t take a break when fighting demons and monsters! They would never take a break when the guild was under attack, or when he was swinging Harusame! They hadn’t taken a break before, so they weren’t going to take a break now!

    His teeth grinding against each other could be heard as he pushed on, excruciatingly. The few drops of sweat became lines of bodily liquids escaping his skin like a shower, but he pushed on. At that point, he had forgotten to count, but he kept on and didn’t want to shockingly disappoint himself. He was more willing to go beyond the 100th mark than stop at, like, 99.

    Down there he was, the Wizard Saint of Fortitude, without aid of a drop of magic, clinging to life and to the pride he held dear to himself.

    Sore (As Fuck) Limbs [Private | Vandrad] RJtajUnz_o


    This would be quite the swap for the two men, as Vandrad had always treated Mura with respect that came with his authority. And it wasn’t as if that respect was going away -- but the Prince knew that his methods would require him to talk direct and plain to the guildmaster and sometimes those words weren’t exactly pleasant. But Vandrad honestly didn’t expect a lot of issue with Mura -- the man was the master of a guild that prospered and was known for his business and professional acumen. Reaching that rank was not easy nor was it easily pushed aside. There was also the fact that Mura was already strong in his magic; all the prince would have to do was focus on the body and then help the guildmaster better strengthen the bond between his abilities and his form.

    But that was a long ways down the road. There were weeks and months apart from where Mura would be and where he was now. Luckily Vandrad was a man of patience when it came to training and he would take as much time as it was needed to get the results that Mura craved. He led his guildmaster into the training room, directing him to the center of the room and asking that he proceed to complete one hundred push ups. Not an easy task to start with and he knew physical trainers outside of the guild would have encouraged a build up. But Vandrad wanted to know what he was working with right away and the best way to do that was to see just how much physical strength Mura carried already. Kyuken, one of Mura’s spirits, spoke up and reminisced on how the sight brought back memories. The balled up ghost remarked about wanting to join but stopped himself short, as he understood that it was a test for Mura.

    Despite himself, Vandrad smirked. "While I’m sure Mura would appreciate that, it is best he accomplishes this on his own. And it seems he possesses a decent amount of strength already,” the prince noticed, as he watched the guildmaster rifle through the push ups in quick speed. Kyuken pointed out that Mura was usually quicker than this but when the guildmaster reminded him that his speed came from his magic, the ghost observed that Mura had clearly relied on his magic quite heavily. "It is not uncommon, especially for people so far long in magical strength as you, guildmaster. Your magic is a part of you, an active pool of strength and power that we draw from to overcome differing tests of will. Sometimes we focus so hard on making that stronger that we forget that our physical forms require building as well.”

    Vandrad walked over as Mura started to slow, his burst of adrenaline and excitement giving away to muscular fatigue. The prince picked up the tablet he’d plugged into the wall and pulled it free, pressing his finger against its screen as he read the information that ran across the screen. As Vandrad used the training room every single day, he had took it upon himself to get acclimated to the space and the technology, as well as installing his own created hardware. He’d programmed the system to constantly be absorbing details from the room, recording every person’s workout and presenting them with finer details to help them improve their technique or focus. He wasn’t sure if anyone knew about it but he still installed it anyways.

    It was a hard trek to reach the hundred push but once Mura passed it, Vandrad nodded. "Good. Take a breath,” he remarked without looking up, analyzing the information presented in front of him. "I will give you this, guildmaster -- not once did you invoke any magical strength to aid you in your task. You’re in a very rare group that I’ve trained that resisted the urge to try and sneak one by me. As for your physical attributes, you’ll be surprised to know that they’re pretty common for someone of your age and size. I know most people hear common and think they aren’t special but more people are either under or over than right at the balance. And that works to our advantage -- it means we don’t need to put you on an incredible protein diet to bulk you up or cut out foods to make you lose some poundage. Now…”

    Vandrad pressed his finger on the screen and the room shimmered before it took on a completely different look. Now they were in a sandstone valley, the steep walls of the ravine rising up above them for seemingly forever. The sun hung directly above them, beating down the warmth as authentically as it would outside the virtual reality. The prince walked over to a small slope close to Mura, where a boulder about the size of a desk lay. "Come over here and lie on your back, with your feet pressing against the boulder,” Vandrad instructed the guildmaster as he effortlessly rolled the boulder up the incline and held it so that Mura could get in place. He waited until the master was in place before he continued. "This boulder is one hundred pounds. We’ve checked your pecs, delts, triceps, abs, coras and serra muscles but now I want to check your leg muscles. Do as many reps as you can of pushing the boulder up, extending your legs completely and then tucking them back against your butt. When you start to wear out, I’ll stop the boulder from rolling down. Hope you’re ready.” And with that, he gently let the rock roll down against Mura’s feet, ready to be pushed by the guildmaster as many times as he could accomplish.
