    Job Details:

    War had broken out in Ishgar, which had many consequences. When nations resorted to bloodshed to achieve their objectives it ruined many lives, but also created many opportunities for others. The fate of millions lay in the balance, and how things would turn out was difficult to predict. Oftentimes, the bigger country with the stronger military would swallow the other, either partially or completely. However sometimes luck was on the side of the weak, or even if the bigger country won the war the aftermath would wreck them.

    Of course, the situation was made significantly worse by the fact this was not just two countries clashing. Almost the entirety of Ishgar had divided itself into two large alliances, ready to tear each other apart. The conflict between Bellum and Pergrande had made the two countries call onto their allies for aid, and most of them had answered. Old grudges had been brought to the forefront, and where before one could travel from any country to another with little inconvenience borders had been closed and armies were raised to answer the ancient call for blood. Only the smaller and more isolated countries had refused to join either side, and even they were cautious to accept visitors at this point, as they were afraid to draw the ire of one of the coalitions if they showed themselves too friendly with the other.

    And then there was Joya, of course. Close to the centre of the continent, first having accepted the role of acting as host for the attempts at resolving matters peacefully only to have a significant portion of their population wiped out in an act which signalled the start of the war. They certainly weren't getting involved in the war, at least not on either side, as they had solid cause to treat both sides with open hostility and distrust.

    But none of that was immediately relevant to Akemi. At least, it wasn't her highest priority. Her highest priority was a new job she had accepted and which she wanted to drag Nymara along to. It did have something to do with the war, but from another angle. The profit angle, actually.

    The raven-haired assassin read through the details of the mission. A wealthy and influential merchant was hosting a ball for nobility from Fiore, Ca-Elum, Desierto, and Bellum. The official reason given was that it was meant to strengthen bonds between the upper class of the members of the Luminous Covenant. After all, it was important for those who fought together to get along and trust each other. Distrust within the coalition could lead to weakness, and against an enemy as powerful as the Ironheart Pact such weakness could quickly spell their doom.

    The unofficial reason was that the merchant was hoping to quickly snatch some of the best weapons trading deals and get rich from the war. The guests from Ca-Elum were the primary targets, as that country was known both for its high-quality weapons and its lucrative trade deals. Bellum might also be able to produce some impressive magical products, but since they were at the forefront of the war they would most likely loathe moving any of their military materiel towards Fiore. As for Desierto... well, to be honest, they really didn't have anything to offer. Desierto was arguably the weakest part of the coalition both in military and economical matters, even if their forces were good at the kind of activities Akemi herself also excelled in.

    Where she came in was that the merchant was aware that such a gathering might also become the target of spies and saboteurs from the Ironheart Pact. This trade deal, while also beneficial for the merchant himself, could end up expediting the transfer of Ca-Elum weaponry into the hands of those who would wield it against Pergrande and its allies. When it came to a war of such a scale it wouldn't be unheard of for the ball, and everyone who attended it, to be destroyed in a freak accident. Obviously, that was unacceptable, and so the merchant had reached out to Fairy Tail to hire additional security. The reason why the merchant hadn't attempted to gain assistance from one of the legal guilds was that this trade deal wasn't necessarily in accordance with the will of the Council. That, and he wished for the mages who accepted the job to attend the ball undercover and be ready to dispatch any suspicious figures post-haste, something that the Rune Knights and the court of law might not be entirely in favour of.

    Akemi considered it fair game, however. Assassination was something she was very good at, as well as countering other assassins. The merchant might be using this opportunity to line his pockets, but the weapons would still end up being used against the Ironheart Pact, and business was business. The only concern she had was also an opportunity: the merchant, understandably, wished for any infiltrators to be dealt with quickly, conclusively, and in a matter which displayed both skill and control. Destroying the manor where the ball would be held would give the wrong impression entirely. Which meant that Nymara would have to be careful with how she used her fire.

    However, training Nymara to control her flames was exactly what Akemi had been working on all this time. When it came to raw firepower the redhead didn't need much training at the moment, so it was all about control and precision. It might not exactly be what the merchant wanted, but Akemi thought this was a good opportunity to see whether Nymara could finally keep the collateral damage to a minimum. Best case, there weren't any spies or saboteurs and they could just spend the evening keeping watch while the nobles did their thing.

    Walking through the halls of Fairy Tail's guild hall Akemi followed the familiar scent to wherever she might find Nymara. The fiery redhead could be found in multiple locations within the guild hall, the bar being one of them. While Akemi was a strict mentor who made sure to keep an eye on her apprentice she wasn't going to dictate everything Nymara did. If the woman wanted to drink herself into a stupor now and then that was her own choice, as long as she didn't complain when Akemi showed up and dragged her away from the bar for more important matters.

    So it finally reached this point. Someone lit the fuse and now the whole continent exploded into warfare. News of fighting raged all across Ishgar, and it was only just beginning. Nymara should have considered herself lucky, as she was in the capital of Joya with Akemi when everything that could've gone wrong did. Their lives were theirs, but unfortunately the same could not be said for many of the native Joyans that were present that day. Of course the resulting action was war when news of this event reached the ears of both sides. Pergrande saw it as an attempt on the life of their representative, and the Cardinal of Whispers from Bellum was found assassinated. Now after the quiet, the storm had arrived and it threatened to engulf the entire continent in war. Of course the only natural response to all of this for Nymara was the guild’s bar. These were certainly strange times they lived in, for Nymara couldn’t think of another instance where a conflict of this scale broke out during her lifetime. She wasn’t sure how much things would change, or how quickly. Naturally, the redhead was inclined to side with whoever the guild decided to join, though she didn’t really have a personal stake in this fight. She would do her duty to the guild if and when the time came, though she wasn’t exactly sure what form that would take. Of course Nym loved to fight, so going to the front sounded like a fun idea. However there was also the fact to consider that this was an actual war, and not just another job. If she got into combat with the Pact, it was bound to be some of the toughest fights she’d ever experience. She had heard the stories of the Empire’s unique abilities that act against magic, though to what extent she wasn’t certain. Not that it mattered much to her right now anyways, as she was far more concerned about the lightness of her mug.

    “Are you certain you should have another? The sun hasn’t even reached its peak yet.” Lucky asked cautiously as he stood on the bar next to Nym, arms crossed. “And who’re you? *hic* the ale ranger?” She replied somewhat groggily with a wide smile across her face, followed by a light snickering as Nym couldn’t help but giggle at her own terrible joke. Lucky on the other hand was obviously not finding it as amusing as her. “My point is you should remain sharp, there’s no telling if the guild should need you soon.” He replied sternly, which only elicited a cocked eyebrow from the girl. “Good! I fight better when I’m swimmin in ale. ANOTHER ROUND!” She called over the counter to the guild’s bartender. Lucky only sighed and shook his head before he turned to face the entrance and his eyes got wider.

    If Nymara wasn’t lost in her drinks she may have sensed the familiar presence of her mentor, but alas she managed to sneak up on her! Lucky straightened his posture slightly and bowed respectfully to the Twilight Dragon as she came to collect Nymara for what seemed like a job of some sort. The exceed could only theorize. Nymara on the other hand took a few moments to notice the odd change in behavior from her companion before her eyes got wide and she got the feeling someone important was standing behind her. Attempting to hold in another burp, Nym slowly turned around to face Akemi with a cocked grin. “Heyyyyy! Are you headin out?” She asked somewhat nervously just as the bartender placed another full mug of alcohol next to the redhead. “Lucky n’ I were just *hic* talkin about this new brew, wanna try?” She asked the Twilight Dragon, holding out the cup to her. Lucky just rolled his eyes, knowing Nymara’s habits extensively by this point. “Greetings Lady Akemi, Lady Nymara here was just… in her words… “preparing” for any possible scenario." Still under the influence, Nymara chimed in with a laugh. “Helps the stress.”
    “Oh I’m certain.” The cat responded with a sarcastic tone, placing his paws behind his back. “At any rate, the girl should learn to deal with the consequences of her actions. I hope you have a task for her.” He continued, looking back up at Akemi with a determined expression. “Who do I need to pummel today?” Nymara asked quite confidently before downing the rest of her drink in one go, as if to prove some point to the cat. Of course he just watched her with a blank expression before sighing once more. “How does one consume so much? I have tried the stuff you humans like so much and… Well I don’t think it was meant for cats.” Nymara slammed the cup on the counter once more after finishing it, and wiping her face with her sleeve. “Hehehe! It’s all in the spirit, kitten!” She laughed. Lucky made no effort to hide his confusion, but shrugged and didn’t press her for an answer.

    Well, it looked like her suspicion that Nymara was getting drunk was spot on. Perhaps that wasn't entirely unreasonable: while they hadn't known it at the time, they had narrowly avoided getting involved in the catastrophe that had wiped Felidae from the face of Ishgar. Whether the attack that had destroyed the city would have killed them as well was a matter of debate, as Akemi was pretty confident in her abilities to survive even under extreme circumstances, but it was still a reasonable response from Nymara to feel weighed down by the realization. Not to mention the fact that for the first time in ages the entirety of Ishgar was engaged in open warfare. Or at least, the majority of Ishgar. Those nations which claimed to be uninvolved might be successful at avoiding conflict in the end, but Akeya suspected their independence might end up being more temporary than they hoped.

    But even if that was the case, she needed Nymara sober for this mission. For one thing, they wouldn't be allowed to attend the ball if Nymara was already noticeably intoxicated upon arrival. For another, since this mission was also meant as an opportunity for the redhead to show off how much better she'd become at controlling her flames her being drunk would definitely get in the way. Even people who consistently had more restraint than Nymara could quickly become much more reckless and rough when they had significant amounts of alcohol running through their veins.

    At least Lucky had been trying to keep Nymara from going overboard, even if the attempts hadn't been too successful. Having the cat looking after her apprentice meant that Akemi had an assistant in curbing Nymara's more reckless behaviour. And if that failed, she had someone who could recount to her what had happened so she could decide what to do with Nymara.

    "We are heading out yes. We've got a new mission lined up." She wasn't going to let Nymara get out of this one, even if there was a good chance that her apprentice wouldn't find it very interesting or fun. "I understand your need to unwind, but I assure you that this mission should allow for that as well. However, you will have to sober up beforehand." She folded her arms to non-verbally refuse the offer of the drink. Not that it mattered much anyway, since the fiery redhead downed it herself not long after.

    "I'll brief you on the details of the job once your head is no longer swimming with alcohol. Come with me." She motioned for Nymara to follow as she walked out of the main hall and towards the library. Aside from finding that location more comfortable herself, she had something that would help with Nymara's condition that the redhead might already be familiar with. She glanced at Lucky, not explicitly telling him to come along but also not forbidding him from following. "Alcohol is a matter of practice, but you're better off not dedicating any effort to it. Beyond that, a common trait for all slayers is that their stomachs are significantly larger than their physique would imply."

    Thanks to modern technology, which combined mundane physics with arcane physics, buildings like the guild hall had free access to virtually limitless water through pipelines. As such, a barrel full of water was, for the most part, a thing of the past: why bother keeping still water around that could possibly become unhygienic if you could just get it straight from the tap? However, Akemi had a good reason for placing a barrel of cold water near the entrance to the library. She didn't want people to stumble into her trove of knowledge while chemically compromised since they'd often make a mess. As such, if needed she'd have them dunk their head in the water to help shake off the effects. Forcefully, if need be.

    "I trust you know what to do yourself." She pointed towards the barrel. "I need you clear-headed for this, so if you protest or hesitate I'll put your head in there myself." Her voice was as calm and serious as always, and the threat wasn't empty either. It had become clear to Akemi that Nymara was a person who wasn't a stranger to physicality or tough love, and as long as she gave the redhead a heads up so she didn't breathe in water she wouldn't have much cause to complain if Akemi grabbed her head and pushed it in.

    However, she'd much rather that Nymara showed enough presence of mind to take care of it herself. A barrel of cold water might not purge the alcohol entirely, but it would at least sober her up a little. The details of this mission were important, and Akemi didn't want Nymara to get the wrong idea and make a mess because her attention had been compromised by the toxins in her veins.

    As anyone could have guessed, Akemi was here to deliver another task upon the girl. Lucky was thankfully relieved at the realization, though the same could not be said for Nymara. Akemi was a fantastic mentor, though that didn’t make being taken away from her drinks hurt any less. Like most people, the ale was essentially a pick up for Nymara. Empowering her with the energy she needed to take down any opponent! Of course whether that proved to be actually true or not was anyone’s guess really, though to the red haired maiden every fight under the influence sure as hell felt like she was ten times more powerful! Granted not everyone exactly liked Nymara’s work when she was drunk, especially her mentor. Perhaps she had to thank Akemi for that, Lucky sure as hell would. Of course though this type of critical thinking was lost on the woman in her current state, so for now she would give in to Akemi’s request rather reluctantly.

    Trying to hold in a large burp as the Twilight Dragon continued, Nymara hopped off her stool and followed close behind, her armored cat companion walking parallel to the duo as they made their way towards the guild’s expansive library. What came next was the short lecture about her drinking habits which caused Nymara to shrug. “I don’t know, have you TRIED this stuff? It’s really good!” She responded with her usual smile, though it was clear by Lucky’s expression that it wasn’t worth smiling about. “You are lucky what Lady Akemi says holds true, if you were a regular person you likely would have destroyed your insides by now with how much you consume.” He stated rather bluntly, though there was truth to that statement. Ever since he had started to accompany Nymara he had seen the inside of many a tavern. It seemed every job or errand they went on they always needed to test the “local elixir of the gods” as she would put it. A thought that made him snort, thinking so highly of such a vile drink. He had seen what it had done to others and was quite thankful Nymara hadn’t gone that far. At least for the moment anyways.

    When they had finally arrived Nym took immediate notice of the water barrel, though she had little time to say anything before her mentor relayed her next set of very clear instructions. Lucky snickered, seeing Nym’s face drop at the realization. Like most people, Nym didn’t drink for the flavour, so purging it all from her system with this method was certainly a kick in the gut. Though Nymara knew it would likely feel a lot worse if Akemi had to carry out her threat. Sighing with irritation the redhead walked up to the barrel of cold water. “Aight then, *water* we dance!” She yelled rather aggressively before dunking her head into the barrel with one quick motion! Nym kept her head submerged for a moment, before the water began to steam and boil like a pot of stew with her head still under! It only lasted a few seconds, as Nym lifted her water soaked head out and shook it like a dog, spraying water all over Lucky and Akemi if she was unlucky enough to be standing nearby. She felt the cold sensation sting her entire nervous system! Like an icy hand that reached and grabbed hold of her spine. Would be hard to tell, with the remaining water in the barrel still steaming with heat. “AUUOOOHH! Okay! Alright! OOOH!” She called out, trying to distract herself from the assault on her senses. Akemi had some rather direct methods, though they proved to be exactly the type Nymara needed. Still trying to shake her brain freeze, Nymara finally gave another furious shake to her head, leaving her long red hair in a dripping mess.

    Finally looking back over to her mentor, Nymara coughed slightly before tilting her head. "Sober enough for ya?"

    As she could have predicted, Nymara immediately protested against Akemi's advice for Lucky to leave the alcohol be. Like a proper drunkard, the redhead had to make it clear she thought alcohol was great. Akemi, for her part, just shook her head. "I've tasted those drinks before, and while some of them might not taste bad they're not worth the loss of cognizance." The assassin prized her ability to remain clear-headed and practical, along with all the knowledge she'd accumulated over the years, and if there was a drink in this world which was worth turning into a drooling dullard she had yet to come across it. And she had no interest in finding it.

    More importantly, Nymara did as she was told and dunked her head into the water barrel. The redhead's ever-present head caused the water to erupt into steam, which made Akemi frown and step back as she waited for Nymara to finish the process. She'd probably have to refill the barrel once her apprentice was done, and make sure the steam didn't enter the library either. Moist air was bad for paper, although that did make her wonder if maybe she should look into some of that new technology people used these days where data could be stored inside magical devices. It would cut down on maintenance a lot, but...

    Her thoughts were interrupted as Nymara pulled her head out of the water and shook it, sending hot droplets everywhere. The droplets that had been heading towards Akemi halted in mid-air as she took hold of their shadows to arrest their movement, then dropped to the ground. Akemi herself didn't outwardly acknowledge them as her gaze was on Nymara instead. "It's a start. You'll have to take a shower for this mission anyway, so that might help sober you the rest of the way up." She imagined that this would cause Nymara to have questions: not many missions would have you take a shower beforehand.

    With another motion for Nymara to follow her, Akemi led Nymara away from the library. In fact, they'd be making their way out of the guild hall entirely and towards the large dormitories that were located directly opposite of the guild hall, across the street. Since the guild hall itself was more meant for business and a gathering location, members who didn't have their own home would have to make do with Fairy Hills. Akemi herself had a room here, although mostly for convenience: her actual home was far removed from here, and not a place easily accessed by anyone other than herself.

    Of course, she could explain the details as they walked. "As you're aware, after we left Felidae City the Symposium, meant to de-escalate the hostilities between Bellum and Pergrande, was attacked and the city was reduced to ashes. As a result, Bellum and Pergrande are openly at war, and Fiore has allied itself with Bellum." This was all background information, but Akemi wanted to make sure that Nymara was up to date before she got to the details of the mission. "For many people, the primary consequence of war is that many people will lose their lives. However, for some war is an opportunity, even an economical windfall. Can you imagine why?"

    The truth was, she wanted to keep the more sensitive information for once they were inside her dorm, where she could be certain that they wouldn't be overheard. It might have been easier to go to her office instead, as that was warded against eavesdroppers as well, but unless Nymara had been stashing away clothes in the guild hall they'd need to go to the dorms anyway. That, and she was interested in hearing Nymara's answer to the question: she wanted her apprentice to use her brain more often, which meant that she sometimes had to actually ask questions and then leave it up to the redhead to try and find the answer.

    A shower? Now why would she need that? Didn't she just dunk her head into a barrel of water? The more Akemi spoke about this upcoming mission, the stranger it sounded to the young dragon slayer. Normally the people she beat up on jobs didn't care how clean she was, so something began to stir in the back of Nymara's mind. She wasn't exactly sure if she was going to like where this was going. "You think my stench will give away our location?" She mused aloud, only to trigger a response from Lucky. "More than likely. You don't need to have the senses of a feline to smell the drink on you." He smirked. Nymara raised an eyebrow before sniffing the air slightly and shrugging. "If my natural musk offends, they can have a flaming fist to the jaw!" She grinned mischievously.

    Nymara's attention was diverted however when she noticed her raven haired mentor making her way out of the library. Getting used to the routine by this point, the dragonslayer sighed and kept pace behind. She was surprised though when she led her out of the hall and towards the guild's popular living quarters for the members that could afford the price. The building looked shiny... Too shiny for Nymara's tastes. Lucky followed close behind, crossing his arms and staring at the large dormitories with a look of admiration. "Not a bad place. Now why do we live under a bridge?" He asked, twitching his ear slightly as he turned to face Nymara. She returned his gaze with a nervous chuckle. "Hehe.. These places are pricey, y'know?" She said. Of course Fairy Hills was meant specifically for the guild's members, so naturally most could sacrifice the cost. Unfortunately Nym had a bad spending problem. Not that her living situation really mattered much to her to start. Ever since joining the guild, Nymara made herself a spot underneath an old ruined stone bridge within the neighboring forest. It wasn't much, but she and Lucky didn't need a lot. And it was free. Well, if you were willing to fight off the local vulcan or two every once in a while anyways.

    Being led inside, Nymara found her curiosity peaked when she realized Akemi was taking them to her room. Before this point Nym had no idea where exactly Akemi spent most of her alone time aside from the guild's library, so to get a glimpse of her mentor's space was a rarity. She almost felt honoured that Akemi would let her enter, as silly as that sounded. The twilight dragon was just so private about most aspects of her life that seeing anything, even if it was just her pad in Fairy Hills, felt like she had some small amount of trust in the fire slayer.

    Nymara looked at Akemi as she began to speak about the spark that started the war. Nymara tensed up slightly thinking back to that day, knowing just what the stakes where that day. Everything that could have gone wrong did, and now everyone was scrambling to deal with the consequences. When her mentor presented the dragon slayer with a question she was silent for a moment, blinking slightly unevenly as her mind still tried to filter out the last traces of the ale in her blood. Shaking her head finally Nym coughed and Lucky sighed. "Economics? Like money and stuff? Yeah! War is full of weapons and people like to buy that stuff." She said, responding rather confidently. Thankfully Nymara didn't always have the intelligence of a rock. She had been on a few jobs before involving arms dealing, though normally she was the one crashing the party. The thought put a smirk on her face. "Ohohoho I see! We gonna ruin some noble's tea party by taking out his explosive merchandise?" Nymara chuckled with excitement, becoming giddy at the thought of letting loose around a bunch of fire inducing weaponry.

    Akemi glanced sideways at her apprentice when Nymara guessed that the shower was needed to hide her scent. While it wasn't the correct answer for this particular instance it was not a bad assumption. "Usually that would be the correct answer, but this time around we're doing something a little bit different. But I would keep that in mind for other missions." She knew Nymara wasn't really suited for stealth, in either skillset or personality, but even the most straightforward brawler could benefit from being able to remain hidden when the situation called for it. "You can't always rely on brute force to get what you want. Sometimes you have to use more finesse than a fist."

    The following argument between Nymara and Lucky about their living conditions made Akemi frown. "If I find out that you're sleeping under a bridge because you keep wasting all your jewels on booze I'll be staging an intervention. It's one thing to enjoy alcohol, it's another to drink yourself into poverty." With how young Nymara was, Akemi wasn't even entirely certain it was a good idea to let the fire dragon drink as much as she did. Then again, it was clear that Nymara's constitution was good enough for it, so it was unlikely that the alcohol would harm her as it would have harmed anyone else. Still, one could get addicted to alcohol, and even if her apprentice wasn't as vulnerable as most others she clearly wasn't immune to the effect alcohol had on the brain. "Especially since, as a certified adventurer, you should be making more jewels than most people would even be able to spend on drinks alone." Being an adventurer was a risky job, often involving life-threatening scenarios. However, for those who had the talent for it, the rewards were plentiful.

    But now was not the time to get into a big argument about Nymara's drinking habits. Especially since part of her money most likely also went to wasting her surroundings and then having to pay for the repairs. Akemi was quite certain that the fire dragon had managed to escape having to pay for the repairs more than once, but now that she was the assassin's apprentice she wasn't going to get off that easily if she went overboard and lost control of her flame.

    Akemi's room was sparse, for the most part. She hadn't changed much to the standard layout or furniture, although she'd covered every single wall with shelves which were filled with books, scrolls, and tomes. She'd also covered the lights with pieces of thin, translucent cloth and closed the shutters on the windows, so the entire room was cast in dim light. The observant eye would notice that the cloths were of various shades of blue and orange, which evoked an atmosphere similar to twilight. For someone with enhanced senses, such as Akemi and Nymara, such light wouldn't be an issue, but for the average person the room would most likely contain too many shadows to be easy to navigate in.

    Coming to a halt in the middle of the room, Akemi turned around to face Nymara and folded her arms. She raised an eyebrow as her apprentice suggested that they were going to steal weaponry, the corner of her mouth twitching before she answered. "Not quite, although you were very close." She motioned with one hand. "There's a rich merchant from Fiore who wishes to establish favourable relationships with the high society from the members of the Luminous Covenant for purposes of trade. That means Fiore itself, Ca-Elum, Bellum, and Desierto. Ca-Elum in particular is receiving a lot of attention, as they're one of the biggest producers of high quality weapons in Ishgar." The corner of her mouth twitched again, amused at the thought of Nymara approaching the question from the wrong side. "For this he's organized a ball, which will be attended by nobles and the like. Rather than disrupting the ball, however, we've been hired as security. Our job is to keep an eye out and get rid of anyone who might wish to cause trouble." Her eyes sharpened a bit. "You've been making progress with your training, which is why I think you can handle this, but I want to emphasize that our client will be very upset if we do too much damage to his mansion. More importantly, I won't be happy either if you end up losing control."

    "Now, as for why you need to shower... Obviously it wouldn't do for security detail to smell like a pub, but the stakes are a little higher than that. The merchant is paying extra for not scaring the guests, and surrounding the mansion with security would remind them that they might be targeted. As such, we'll be taking the part of the ball as guests ourselves."

    She pointed towards the bathroom with her thumb. "Not every job is about finding something to set on fire, and this will be a good opportunity for you. Since you've just admitted to living under a bridge you can use my shower, and unless you've got an outfit stashed away somewhere which would be appropriate for a ball I'll find a dress which fits you. Any questions?"

    Nymara glanced at Lucky with a blank expression after Akemi's comment about her answer, though the exceed simply gave her a shrug and moved on, leaving the rapidly drying red-head to trail behind. "Hehehe, I haven't met a problem a *flaming* fist couldn't handle!" The dragonslayer mused aloud for a moment with a groggy grin, before Lucky shot her another cold glare which reminded her what Akemi was trying to do. "Uhh, but y- you're probably right.. Being sneaky probably has its perks too!" Nymara somewhat blundered, trying to recover the point she had already failed to catch. Truthfully Nymara wasn't sure what the twilight dragon was planning, though whatever it was it certainly seemed to be outside the norm... For the firebrand at least.

    When Lucky outed their living situation to her mentor, Nymara didn't think much of it at first. That was of course until Akemi picked up on the obvious implications and began to throw them in her face. Even threatening to intervene. The thought chilled the fire slayer to her core! Something that became quite apparent by the expression on her face. "Well I gotta p- pay for food too! That stuff isn't cheap!" She protested, trying to defend herself. "Well when you order the whole menu, it does tend to add up." Lucky chimed in with a smirk, Nymara shooting daggers at him with her eyes. As usual though, Akemi was right. No matter how much Nym tried to sugar coat it, her drinking problem contributed much to her financial instability. She was a full fledged wizard now, and was regularly taking on well paying jobs for the guild. Of course many of those jobs ended in Nymara paying for unintentional damages, yet the redhead didn't waste too much time when thinking about where to allocate all her resources. Something her mentor seemed determined to change.

    The overwhelming smell of paper wafted into the girl's nose, similarly to how it did every time Nymara entered the library to bother her mentor. Though this space was much more confined. Even to Nymara, it was clear that the twilight dragon had turned what was meant to be a living space into her own private arcanium. The girl wasn't much for dusty old scrolls or tomes, though she had known about her mentor's interests for a while. She wondered what criteria Akemi used to determine which books were special enough to add to her collection, or leave in the library.  "Ah, now this is much easier on the eyes." Lucky said as he observed Akemi's dim room. Thanks to his feline nature, the exceed had acute night vision, which allowed him to see clearly in the darkness. Nymara had a similar feature, though it was based on a more reptilian nature. She couldn't help but admire her mentor's decorative choices, even if there wasn't a lot. Normally Akemi was known for being very straightforward and serious, though instances like these when Nymara noticed her personal touch on the cloth covered windows felt like small glimpses into her personality. Perhaps Nymara would have to take Akemi's advice and be more observant, who knows what she could learn about her teacher if she did.

    Nymara's excitement quickly cooled when Akemi dismissed her first guess, and began to explain the parameters of the job. Sure enough, it was something completely unexpected! Nymara tried to soak in everything her mentor was saying while Lucky stood next to her with crossed arms, taking a great interest in the coming mission. The same could not be said for the redhead though, as Akemi continued it all started to make more and more sense to Nymara. The war had kickstarted many deals, and one of which happened to be extremely favourable to the kingdom if it could be pulled off. That is apparently where Nymara, Lucky, and Akemi enter the scene. Nym's eye twitched slightly after Akemi had finished explaining the job before opening her mouth. "So you just want me to play bodyguard? W- Without disrupting the ball?" She repeated what her mentor had told her, just to make sure she had heard it correctly. At this point Nymara wasn't sure if this was just a mission or another test! Though at she should have expected as much from the twilight dragon, as she seemed to be a fan of combining the two. There was no question at all about Nymara's lack of subtlety, so to accomplish this job within her mentor's parameters seemed foolhardy! Sure she could protect people fine, but to do it without anyone seeing? Nymara crossed her arms and tilted her head, a look of confusion on her face. "Well how much trouble are we expecting? Also I don't know these kinds of people! I can't be expected to interact with them!" She said, though Lucky simply raised a paw. "Fear not, my lady! I happen to have experience in these types of events believe it or not, so I can perhaps be your humble guide." He said with confidence, though Nymara wasn't exactly reassured.

    Knowing she likely wasn't going to squirm her way out of this one, Nymara sighed and looked towards the back where Akemi had pointed. "A dress? Hehe, no never needed one. Things are too hard to fight in.." Nym responded, reminiscing on some old escapades. She much preferred her white coat and vest to anything else, though it was clear the situation would call for a wardrobe change. Well... It's better than the river at least." Nymara grumbled as she entered the bathroom and began preparing herself. Lucky for the most part would bow his head. "I shall leave you two ladies to your privacy, I will await outside." He said in a respectful tone to the twilight dragon before exiting her room.

    Akemi pointedly ignored Nymara's blank look towards Lucky. For an assassin covering your scent so you didn't get discovered was, in fact, quite important, and even if Nymara wasn't planning to focus as much on stealth and subtlety as her master Akemi was still going to at least teach her the basics. After all, even if you didn't want to be an assassin, you might still have to be able to catch your own food someday.

    "Being stealthy has the advantage that you can get the first hit in before the target has the opportunity to react or defend themselves. Given that you need prompting to remember this I might make it the focus of our next training session." Some more emphasis on tactics and strategy might be a good idea anyway. She could reconfigure the training room into something like a mountainous region, have Nymara try to catch her while Akemi herself tried to tap the redhead from somewhere unseen. Done properly it might even be fun for the fire slayer, which should keep her from complaining or getting frustrated.

    Lucky's hint that Nymara not only drank a lot, but also ate a lot, had Akemi sighing. "Well, at least eating a lot means you've got a lot of energy to burn, which can be useful. Still, it'd be a good idea to cut back a little so you can keep some jewels tucked away in case you need them. Some things are most easily obtained by paying for them." In Akemi's case it was mostly scrolls and the like, something that she imagined Nymara wouldn't necessarily be interested in. But everybody could benefit from having some spending money, in case something struck their fancy or unexpected circumstances forced them to change priorities on what was important.

    It seemed that both Nymara and Lucky appreciated Akemi's choice to dim the lights in her room, resulting in the assassin giving a quick nod in response to Lucky's comment. She herself found this a lot more comfortable, even if she had become used to the brightness of the outdoors. If Nymara and Lucky studied the scrolls, tomes, and books that lined the walls they'd find that it was mostly a mixture of historical records from all over Ishgar and magical theory. So far as Akemi was concerned knowing as much about how magic worked was a non-optional requirement for developing one's own magic. She couldn't deny that there were plenty of entities who managed to achieve great heights without such intense study, but she was hoping to achieve equal or even greater height while being a lot more efficient and effective.

    "Playing would imply that you're not actually acting as a bodyguard. Although to be more precise, you're protecting everyone at the ball, not just the host." She wanted to clear that up before Nymara got the idea that she only had to look after the merchant. If the redhead ignored threats directed at the guests it could actually become a bit of a problem. "And yes, we will have to keep collateral damage to a minimum. If the mansion does get attacked you won't be blamed for the disruption of the ball, but if you do damage the mansion in the process of fending off the attackers our client will file complaints and the reparations will come out of your pocket." She smirked slightly at that. "Another reason to not drink and eat all your jewels away. That said, since we'll be attending this ball as guests ourselves you'll be allowed to eat from the buffet, as long as you don't clear the table by yourself."

    She tapped her cheek at Nymara's reasonable question about wishing to know how likely it was that the ball would be attacked. "The client didn't say anything about attacks that he's certain will happen. It's more likely that we're hired as insurance. If you're lucky the ball will end without any incidents and you don't have to worry about controlling yourself." That would probably be the most fortunate outcome for the merchant and the guests. Akemi would rather have some nuisances show up so Nymara was forced to improve her self-control, but the dark claw mage was not looking forward to hearing the merchant kick up a fuss if part of the mansion got destroyed.

    Lucky then chimed in with a suggestion that was actually quite welcome. Akemi shifted her attention towards the cat and nodded. "That's not a bad idea. On the way to the ball Lucky can instruct you on the basics, and guide you through the more complex encounters if necessary. That said, you're young and beautiful, so you can get away with some abnormal behaviour without the other guests getting too upset about it." If people found you attractive they were a lot more forgiving when judging your words and actions. "If you don't have a dress I'll find one that suits you, but since I'll have to take care of some things afterwards the two of you will be travelling to the mansion without me. I'll meet you there instead."

    While attending the ball was well and good, to truly be prepared for trouble Akemi wanted to scout the surrounding area and perhaps set some traps which would serve her well in defending the place. Her magic was for the most part meant to be used in the moment, but as she developed her skills she also picked up new tricks, including some which she still found rather baffling herself.

    With Lucky having left the apartment to give the two women their privacy Akemi followed Nymara into the bathroom. No sense in wasting time waiting for the redhead to finish before showering herself, and she'd probably be done before Nymara anyway so she'd have time to find a good dress for her apprentice.


    After Akemi had finished her shower quickly she had remained true to her word and procured a dress for Nymara. The measurements were correct, and the dark design should make her look both stunning and intimidating. The fire slayer did have a point that she wasn't used to mingling with high society, so it wouldn't hurt to discourage the guests from approaching her on a mere whim.

    Of course, there would probably be those who'd approach her because they didn't know who she was and they were smitten with her, but Akemi figured they'd handle those as they came. She did already have an idea of how to handle it as well, but it'd be funnier if she didn't tell Nymara in advance.

    Leaving Nymara to finish her shower, get dressed, and receive some education on etiquette from Lucky on the way to the mansion, Akemi cut down her own travel time to less than a minute by finding a convenient shadow, stepping into it, and stepping out of the mansion's shadow and immediately turning invisible. By shifting between shadows she managed to quickly cover the entire estate. The estate itself seemed to be fine, properly prepared for the ball that would take place that evening, but the surrounding town... Akemi frowned. In a place like this, troublemakers could easily slip in from any direction. Shirotsume was a fairly lawless place, with powerful individuals relying on retainers and hired muscle to enforce their own rule within their territory. The merchant who acted as their client was certainly wealthy, and had managed to seize a fairly large territory, but the other big players of Shirotsume might find that reason to interfere with this ball as well.

    As evening fell and the ball was soon to begin Akemi shifted back to her room and got dressed as well. Once she was as prepared as she could be she shifted back to Shirotsume, waiting some ways outside of the town so she could wait for Nymara and Lucky to arrive so the three of them could enter the merchant's estate proper.

    Of course no matter how many different ways Akemi explained it to the girl, Nymara was convinced she was going to learn to hate this mission. She had known for quite some time that Akemi was trying to teach her how to be more controlling of her magic and to show more restraint. All well and good, though attaching the stakes of a rich guy's big house proved to be quite worrisome. Something that seemed painfully obvious to both Lucky and her raven haired mentor. If the situation called for it, she would not hesitate to defend the ball's guests from harm, though could she really do so in a fashion that warranted no attention? As she thought about that question it became more clear to the girl that the twilight dragon was more than likely toying with her! Based on the little Nymara had seen from Akemi's powers, she knew her mentor was a beast! Not only that, but she specialized in stealth and trickery, which was exactly what this type of mission needed. Nymara was sure that Akemi would have no trouble pulling something like this off herself, so why bring her and Lucky along? Simple! It had to be another test but unlike all the others Nymara had the awkwardness of other people to deal with. And like Akemi just finished explaining, she'd be responsible for all of their safety. "D- Does the guy even know my magic?" She asked, wondering if Akemi had conveniently left that part out when she took on the job. "My dear lady, you are worrying to much." Lucky interjected when he noticed the room temperature rise in the room filled with paper along with Nymara's nervousness. "I'm sure when you put your mind to it, you can control your flames just fine! Remember that exam?" The exceed continued, trying his best to assure her of her own ability. He was right though, while difficult it wasn't impossible for Nymara to keep her flames in better check. She just had problems keeping them that way. Her previous exam was proof of that theory.

    The dragonslayer's face lit up when Akemi mentioned that she could partake in the food, though she knew she probably wouldn't have too much time to spend with it. Akemi seemed unsure of the chance that an attack would take place, though the fact that the two of them were hired at all probably meant there was certainly some risk involved with this whole affair. The war was in full swing now, after all. Who knew what shady backroom deals were being made behind the frontlines. Test or not though, Nymara was determined to get this job done without disappointing her mentor. For earning Akemi's ire produced no greater sinking feeling in one's stomach. Despite how nervous the redhead may have seemed, it wasn't like she didn't trust the twilight dragon. Nymara would need to remember that no matter how difficult the task may have seemed, her mentor wasn't unfair. A pleasant change from Vulcanis. If Akemi believed Nymara was ready for this type of job, than the girl would just have to hold her head high and do the same. Not that there would be many options in the first place.

    "Oh quite! I'll be with her every step of the way to make sure she doesn't make a fool of herself." The armored cat said with a confident expression, crossing his arms. "Though admittedly it could yet prove to be a fool's errand." He continued, shooting another smirk at the dragon slayer. Rolling her eyes Nymara didn't say another thing to Lucky before she turned her attention back to her mentor. "Abnormal behaviour? Why I can be completely normal if I want too!" She said, clearly latching on to the unimportant tidbits of Akemi's information. "Mhm, a wonder then none of us have seen it yet." Lucky jabbed once more, clearly enjoying irritating the redhead. "Can it cat before I singe your fur!"

    After a rather hot shower Akemi seemed to be true to her word. Seeing the dress laid out on the bed she tilted her head slightly with a frown. Lucky had his arms behind his back as he stood near the entrance to Fairy Hills. His ears flicked suddenly when he heard the familiar grunting of his companion and he curiously look over at the door just as Nymara clumsily stumbled out of it. Now in a complete dress. Akemi had chosen extremely well, as the outfit complimented Nymara to the letter! The black was an excellent pick, and the dress' measurements seemed to match the girl's unique physique almost perfectly! Even in the chest area, how suspicious. Though as stunning as Nymara now looked garbed for a noble ball, her face reflected the exact opposite. It was obvious she was struggling to feel comfortable in such an outfit, and the bonuses it did for her appearance were the last thing on her mind. Lucky on the other hand raised an eyebrow. "The mansion is several towns away, my lady. Do you really intend to wear that all the way there? Especially on the train?" He asked Nym as her muscles tensed up. He was right, the mansion was quite far wasn't it. Shirotsume wasn't exactly Magnolia's neighbour, which meant if the two of them intended to meet Akemi at the specified time they'd need to get on the railway. Her stomach turned just thinking about it, but Nymara nodded.

    "At least you didn't get any vomit on the nice dress Lady Akemi got you, she may want it back." Lucky said with a cheery tone, walking next to a much more miserable looking Nymara. The train ride had been quite the ordeal, but Nymara was just thankful that it was over. If the constant stomach problems weren't bad enough, listening to Lucky's lectures on how to talk to nobles made it worse. She was just happy that the meeting spot was coming into view, and it seemed like they were going to be right on time.

    "Augh.. We finally made it!" Nymara tried to say with enthusiasm, though it was obvious she was still dealing with the after effects of the motion sickness. If she had known she would be traveling tonight, the dragonslayer may not have consumed as much beer. It certainly didn't help her on the tracks. Though when Nymara's eyes had a chance to sharpen a bit more she was almost instantly brought out of her groggy state! Akemi was there, in the spot they agreed upon, though she looked different! In what seemed like a second Nymara forgot her pain and was absolutely entranced by the new look of her mentor. Why? She wasn't sure! Nymara had never seen Akemi spruce up her looks for a special event before, so seeing it now she was woefully unprepared. "Your dress! I- It's new!" Nym fumbled with her words a bit, causing Lucky to arch an eyebrow up at her. Though when he saw the redness on her cheeks it didn't take long for the exceed to connect the dots. "I h- haven't seen you in it before..." She trailed off slightly, clearly confused about her own feelings at the moment. Nymara wasn't sure why she was so surprised, as the twilight dragon did mention before they would be dressing up for this venture. Yet seeing her in person like this caused some sort of fire to start in Nym, and she wasn't sure why. Lucky just hoped it rained recently, or their surroundings might get lit aflame. Thankfully the whole purpose of this job was to restrain from such actions.

    It looked like Nymara and Lucky actually managed to arrive on time. Akemi wasn't too surprised, as she'd made sure to inform Nymara of the task they'd be undergoing with plenty of leeway, but it was still good to see that the fire slayer and the cat managed not to delay themselves. A part of her had been worried that Nymara, clearly not very comfortable with the upcoming mission, might try to calm her nerves with some alcohol and then forget what she was supposed to be doing. It wasn't that she distrusted Nymara as she was aware that the redhead could be a bit careless at times.

    However, that was purely a hypothetical possibility that, as it turned out, had failed to be true. Instead, Akemi could straighten up and raise a hand to announce her presence to the other two, waiting for them to reach her so... apparently Nymara could be absolutely flabbergasted by Akemi's appearance. It was true that usually, Akemi dressed like she didn't care too much about what others thought of her, as her clothes served their purpose of covering up her important parts and otherwise were rather messy. As such, she couldn't exactly blame Nymara for being surprised, although she was definitely amused by it.

    "This isn't actually the first time I've worn this dress, but it's true that it's the first time you've seen it." She answered smoothly, looking Nymara over as well. Being in the shower with Nymara had given her the opportunity she needed to get a good idea of the firebrand's physique, and from the looks of it she'd managed to pick the right dress to suit that body. "You look beautiful as well, so I think we're all set for the task at hand." The corner of her mouth curled upwards into a slight smile. "Well, aside from the fact that you seem to be ready to combust. Try to take deep breaths and turn down the heat." They could hardly arrive at the ball if Nymara was turning all the water around her into steam.

    Akemi was pleased by Nymara's reaction, so she wasn't quite as stern as usual. So far every compliment she'd thrown her apprentice's way had flown right over that red-haired head, which made her wonder if Nymara was just that oblivious. So instead she'd dressed up in a manner which, as long as Nymara had a libido which was capable of reacting to the female physique, should definitely provoke a response. And it had, so at the very least Akemi had received confirmation that her apprentice's sexual orientation was one which included her mentor. And at the same time, she'd been able to find a mission which would give her the opportunity to make Nymara put on a nice dress as well, so Akemi herself also had something nice to look at while on the job.

    "Black does look really good on you."
