    COME AT ME AND YOU'LL SEE
    I'M MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE

    --- YOU THINK THAT YOU'LL BREAK ME, YOU'RE GONNA FIND IN TIME ---
    Saffron groaned. She was drowning from boredom. There were a number of jobs on the board, but next to none of them were scheduled to be done today as all the clients were far too busy enjoying themselves at the Spring Festival that was being hosted throughout Fiore’s various cities. Normally the Bosconian woman would have been all about joining in with the festivities but her typical festival partners, Hosrius and Grubar, had both made other plans and abandoned her. She had thought about going by herself; it wouldn’t have been the first time. Hell, she’d met Hosrius at a festival that she’d gone to by herself. But that was back at a time when she was still new to Fiore and didn’t know anyone, and was trying to get more exposure to the culture. Now that she actually had friends out here and had integrated herself into the guild, it felt more than a little lame to go somewhere without any company.

    She sat in her room at the guild for a couple hours, lazily flicking back and forth between various shows on the lacrivision and not really being very captivated by most of them. Saffron was far too social of a creature to waste her day being glued to the screen. As her body sank lower and lower into her recliner she finally groaned as she realized she’d been staring at the ceiling longer than at the lacrivision itself. “Fuck it.” She couldn’t take it any longer.

    Turning the machine off, she dragged herself out of the cushioned chair and threw on a new outfit that was more suited to being out in public than the sweat pants she had been lounging in all morning. A pair of worn and faded shorts were thrown on beneath a white tank top, with a purple handkerchief tied around her left thigh. She slipped her arms into a brown leather jacket that was cropped short at her waist and pulled on a pair of fingerless black gloves. Completing the ensemble was her trademark boots with a set of orange socks poking out of the top. With a quick brush of her hair to make sure her glorious mane was just so, the woman strolled out of her room and made her way toward the exit.

    If she hadn’t been so bored and restless all morning, she may have missed him as she passed by. As it was, it took a moment for her mind to catch up with her eyes. The blonde walked past the open door to the office where the guild leaders often conducted business and it wasn’t until she had fully passed the door that she registered Vandrad’s presence. Turning on a dime, she backtracked and poked her head inside with a perplexed expression. “Yo. What are you doing here? Did all the aliens ditch you too? That pow-wow must be more exclusive than I realized.”

    Saffron assumed that Vandrad knew that Mercury had plans to meet up with Hosrius and Grubar at the festival today. Frankly, she’d assumed that Vandrad had been invited, so it was a genuine surprise to see him still at the guild hall. She would barely give him enough time to respond. “Welp, their loss. Let’s go, old man. I refuse to be this bored out of my fucking mind when there is a festival going on right outside of our doors.” She slapped her hand against the threshold a couple times to emphasize the decision she’d made for him before she pulled back in the hallway and walked off completely confident that he would follow. The only indication that she knew him well enough to know that he wouldn’t just come along simply because she demanded it was her voice as it called back to him from down the corridor.

    “If you don’t come with me, I’m going to tell Mercury that you called me your friend.”

    There’s no fair or unfair in battle.

    As far as Vandrad was concerned, this was a day off. Though that still required him to fill out paperwork for Fairy Tail, that was hardly a chore to the ace. Paperwork didn’t bother him like it bothered other people; he found it relaxing. And since he didn’t have Mercury constantly chirping in his ear about one thing or another, he could focus up and get his work done in a timely fashion. After that, he could return to his crafting station and continue development on some of his projects.

    It was as such that the former prince also didn’t really register anyone passing by. Plenty of Fairy Tail members made their way past the staff door and a few of them even greeted him as they went. They were all met with grunts of recognition but nothing more. The armor-clad ace was fully focused and had no intention of being distracted by mere passing conversations. Luckily, most people understood that about him now and didn’t make a big deal out of it.

    Then there was the likes of Saffron. He, once again, didn’t pay her much mind, sensing her signature magical aura as it went on its way. He imagined that she was going out on a job or out with someone else or whatever -- the blonde was always going out and about when she wasn’t training with him or so he believed. Despite their newly crowned friendship, Vandrad didn’t claim to know everything about her or her activities during the day. But unlike everyone else, Saffron did not continue onward when she realized he was there. No, unsurprisingly, she felt the need to put on the brakes and turn to face him in the doorway, albeit in a comical manner as her head popped around the corner. A single eye rose from the document he was working on to look in her direction even before she greeted him and wondered what he was doing there. She theorized that he had been ‘ditched’ by the aliens.

    Mercury was going with Hosrius and Grubar to meet up with a contact of the mercenaries. Apparently he had a connection to Maker and was determined to aid in their hunt for him. "No, I was invited along, as Maker attacked my family and, as such, it is considered a personal matter. But Mercury is more than sufficient enough to get the intel from their source. Besides, they alo spoke of actually attending the festival and I have no desire to do anything like that.” He’d been to one too many festivals as far as he was concerned, positive that he would be dragged to another one by Mercury sometime in the future. The opportunity to skip one mattered more to him than meeting a man from the cosmos to learn what little more they could about Maker and his schemes.

    What he hadn’t anticipated was that another equally as demanding force would take up the reigns where they had fallen lax. Saffron announced, most likely without having really listened to anything he said, that it was the loss of Mercury, Grubar and Hosrius and that they would be going out. As she put it, she had no desire to remain stagnant and ‘bored’ when she could go and be active and mingle with the people of Magnolia. With that decision apparently made, she patted the door aggressively and went off. Vandrad scoffed in mock amusement. "Bold of you to assume that you have any means of making me go anywhere,” he muttered.

    But of course, he’d forgotten that he had given her ammo, the fool he was. She hadn’t even made it fully down the hall before she called out and informed him that if he opted against coming, she would tell Mercury about their freshly minted friendship. His hand froze mid-stroke of his pen and he closed his eyes and groaned. It was a conundrum; on the one hand, it didn’t really matter whether she told Mercury or not. It would come out eventually; some flagrant use of free ammunition to benefit herself in amusement, no doubt.

    Yet at the same time, he could only imagine the kind of torture Mercury would put him through now. And between dealing with it in the present or far in the future, all he could do was say a little prayer for his future self. Sighing indignantly, he finished his sentence on the paperwork and  closed the folder. It was annoying and he would have to come up with a suitable punishment for her after the fact. But with a groan he got to his feet and closed the door to the office. As he walked after her, he scoffed again as he spoke up to her. "Sooner or later you’re going to misfire on that particular piece of information and then you won’t have your advantage anymore.”

    COME AT ME AND YOU'LL SEE
    I'M MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE

    --- YOU THINK THAT YOU'LL BREAK ME, YOU'RE GONNA FIND IN TIME ---
    Despite what Vandrad likely believed, Saffron had heard him just fine about his lack of desire to go to the festival. It was just that she had decided not to accept his answer. After all, friends didn’t let friends be boring – or at least, that’s how she saw it. Vandrad was certainly grumbly and antisocial, but that didn’t intimidate Saffron or give her pause in the least bit, unlike nearly all of the rest of the guild’s membership. So when he tried to state that he was content to just sit inside and do paperwork instead of being involved in the gathering, she simply brushed it off and took charge, informing him that he was going to join her – or else.

    She didn’t hear his muttered comment about not being able to make him do anything, but she had rightly assumed he was at least thinking something along those lines, which was why she made sure to follow up with the trump card that he had provided her not so long ago. And sure enough by the time she was making her way through the main hall and toward the guild’s entrance he had caught up with her. As he informed her that there would come a day that Saffron would slip up and let the truth slip, losing her advantage in the process, she merely grinned at him. “I’m insulted that you think I can’t keep a secret, or that I would be so careless with my blackmail. I may not have made the military my entire personality like you did, but I am still capable of exhibiting discipline and self control when necessary. In fact, since I’m such a great buddy, I’m not even going to tell Mercury that you went with me so she can’t tease you about it.”

    Out they walked into the streets of Magnolia, the city filled with throngs of people laughing and enjoying the various foods and festivities. Vandrad would quickly find that one of the benefits of going to a function like this with Saffron was that, unlike Mercury, Saffron wasn’t necessarily looking to be as involved as possible with all the different games and contests. In fact, she seemed more or less content to just be out and about and spending time with someone whose company she enjoyed, stopping for the occasional snack and laughing at all the people that were making fools of themselves. For her it was clearly less about the direct involvement and more about the atmosphere and companionship.

    That wasn’t to say that she didn’t want to get involved, however. She simply was more selective about the energy she spent, more interested in games that were going to challenge her on some level. And after a bit of wandering around the fairgrounds she found just the event: a relay race in which people made up teams of four people a piece and had to dress up in a leprechaun costume which then needed to be passed along to the next runner before they could run their lap. Normally something like this had the potential to be insanely unfair, but it seemed the main rule was that no one was allowed to use their magic under any circumstances to give themselves a winning boost.

    “Okay, that looks hilarious. I’m signing us up.” Magic or no, Saffron was quite certain that they would wipe the track with their opponents, provided that they were paired up with other halfway decent runners. The two of them were both extremely competitive, and while this was just a silly race with no worthwhile achievement to speak of, it was still a physical activity that they could both appreciate as a light workout to keep them active and engaged.

    Soon enough they were on the track and forming a line with the two other teammates that had been assigned to them as they determined what order they would go in. Saffron offered to go first, confident that she could set them up with a decent enough lead to give them time, if needed, should there be any mishaps with changing costumes or compensating for the speed of their other teammates. She waited for the race to start, poised over the garment on the floor in anticipation, and the second the siren sounded for them to begin the blonde snatched the outfit off the ground and threw it on herself. She didn’t necessarily get the attire on much faster than the other teams, most of the other first runners getting dressed in relatively the same amount of time as her. However, once she started running she stepped on the gas pedal and just didn’t stop, practically leaving streaks of dust in her wake as she built a remarkably significant lead against the others.

    As her lap came to a close she ripped off the hat and threw it at the next running on their team without even really looking, already more focused on tearing off the leprechaun suit as quickly as possible so the next person could get it on. Surprisingly, the guy got dressed in record time, practically jumping straight into the suit the second it left Saffron’s body. Then, he was off with about as much gusto as Saffron herself had been, the man already halfway around the track before the other teams had finished passing on the attire to their second runners. “Phew! Look at him go!” Saffron cheered. It seemed as though they had been paired with some proper runners!
