MY STORY IS JUST BEGINNING
It had been another boring and rather lonesome day for the plucky young fox mage of Fairy Tail, still having to get used to this new scar she had gotten from when her magic had been stole only a month prior to the date. While the act had proved to be detrimental to her magical ability, it had been Mura to be the one to step in and assist in showing her a new magic to improve upon. And so, Kumiko had remained the ever studious mage she was known to be. After a week or so of playing around with this magic, she sought a chance to go and practice with it in the field. Just like the guildmaster had told her long ago, it was one thing to strike a training dunny as practice. It was a whole nother deal to practice on an actual human being. So imagine his surprise when he would find out that she had not decided to practice on people but robots, currently rampaging across the land of Motor City. The young mage had been scouring the board with leads across the way before one in particular would catch her eyes. "Oh?" The girl stood up on her tippy toes to collect a stray piece of paper from the board with a picture of…some kind of robot? Her eyes scoured across the job posting with ample excitement. "Robots running around crazy? I didn’t even know those were a thing. I wonder if they’re like food or something." she said to herself, although her hopes were let down as soon as the description of the targets was given. Darn metal. She couldn’t even eat that! Still, it did seem like a great job for testing out her natural abilities now that the lacrima Mura had given her appeared to be fully operational. The child collected the posting and would then place it inside of her robes before nodding proudly to herself. "Time to see what this magic can do!"
The next part of Kumiko's time was spent actually getting transportation to Motor City in the first place. It was a rather perilous sequence of events, with asking Mura for a ride due to the fact that she didn’t want to waste any of her jewels on a ticket for obvious reasons. Besides, how would she spend most of her hard earned Jewels on candy if she had to use a bunch just to use it for a ticket? Her frustration rose as the helpful Mura would then suddenly decide that it would be time for her to experience buying such an important thing for herself and made her go instead of taking her the easiest route with his dragon. Kumi threw a tiny fit and stomped off to the station, buying one and suffering that way instead. The ride on the trip over would be a long and miserable one, like the many she had experienced time and time again. The child laid on her side, clutching her stomach while waiting for the ride to end after some seemingly endless amount of time. Her ears were drooped across her head, tails poofed and currently covering the mage up. The ride was for an hour? Maybe a couple? It honestly felt like an eternity to the kitsune child. After the sound of the train coming to a stop and allowing people off, Kumiko would groan and roll off of the seats she had found herself on before slowly pushing herself up to her feet.
"Huh, so this is Motor City.." Kumiko said, glancing around the environment as it appeared much more different than the other lands she had been to. "I was kinda expecting it to be kinda like a robot…" For one, there appeared to be a much heavier emphasis on technology than in Fiore or even Midi. But Kumiko couldn’t spend the entire time sightseeing, not when there was a job to do! She’d fetch the job poster from her robes and quickly be about reading the information to find the meeting spot. There was hopefully another person coming relatively soon to the same spot. The young mage would carefully make her way over before hearing a commotion coming from nearby. A sudden crash came from her left, as her ears twitched, peeking up from the job pasting paper to see a freshly cubed hunk of metal having crashed right beside her. "What the-" Kumi looked up just in time to catch a glimpse of a massive robot with a hole in its chest, having been throwing pieces of crunched metal everywhere as other nearby robots would be acting just as belligerent. The kid would scurry over closer while keeping an eye out on the situation, aiming to get some details as to what the robots were doing.
