☽ lyra blooms ✧ silver wolf ☾
✧ While it had only been a few mere months since the fairy's last visit to the city of rose gardens, the same feeling of change resonated within Lyra's bloated stomach as it did every time she graced its foliage. This place was a place of the past for both her and her sisters- making her way through the streets as a mage of Eden Rainbow in her travels, visiting Desirée when she was simply a guild ace of Black Rose and having sleepovers at her dainty apartment.. now living was different for them all, and while the change was a fruitful series of blessings, it sometimes felt bittersweet. Holding her left hand under the lump in her belly as she slowly walked down the spiraling stone pathways that led into the decadent gardens that coated the street's edge, she could not help but think of all that change that the year past had brought her- and the many changes that were yet to come in her tiny life among the trees. She was most thankful that her family was united and prospering more than ever before, even in the face of the multitude of wars that unfolded across the horizon. It was remarkable to the soon-to-be mother how easy it was for those of the Blooms lineage to hold up in the midst of her father's heinous acts, and though she knew it was not easily granted to them to be as such, she hoped it would continue to play out that way.
Finding herself to be in the form she graced Silver Wolf's guild hall for the first time almost nine months ago, being the size of a naturally mid-sized girl with fairy wings upon her back, her pupils would begin to dilate as she would search for a pop-up shop for virgin drinks. She hoped for strawberry or lavender, but it seemed as if the only vendors that lined the garden's edge would be those selling bouquets dedicated to selling bouquets; specifically, those dedicated to the new year, matching the colors of the flowers that blotted the hills as far as the eye could see. The scents that drifted into her nose from the multi-colored flora were just as intense as they were miraculous, and she could immediately place that they were from the combination of roses, lilies, and baby's breath. It smelled just as the stronghold of roses did when she visited Luminous Rose a month ago but even stronger- it was quite fitting, all things considered, being that she was wearing a dress from the Guildmaster of that wonderous guild, her younger sister, given to her as a gift for congratulations for her pregnancy. The dress consisted of a pink leotard shape on the interior, fitted to be comfortable around her baby bump, seen through an exterior of ruffly transparent sleeves and a flowing lower half marked by floral designs. It was the first time Lyra had got to wear it, as it was previously too baggy around the stomach, but as she near closer to her time of birth she fit better and better inside. Her two companions would play in the bushes as she would continue to search for a beverage or maybe even a snack, being her fern kitten and her eclipse frog.
"..I wonder if Tim got my invitation I left for him back at the guild hall," she would speak quietly to herself and her distracted animal friends, slowly stepping across the stones in between the garden with her heels making small, delicate clacks, "I've been dying to know how he's been doing these past few months that I've been gone on the artifact trip. Ah, drinks and snackies~! ✧"
Running up to a small booth that seemed to be selling smoothies and teas deeper into the garden, Lyra would begin to wait in line as she would continue to wonder about the guildmate she had invited to come to this street festival with her, her eyes scanning the text of the menu with a glimmer. Though she had found herself going out for months at a time alone in search for the lost artifacts of the ancient civilization, she felt as though Tim was one of her only friends back at the guild hall, even if they hadn't talked much. She just hadn't had the chance to properly meet anyone other than him and her guildmistress since she joined- but she planned on taking a rather extensive break from going out on long jobs, especially with how long she was into her journey into motherhood. Lyra hoped it would open up a window for more socializing, even if it gave her anxiety behind the rippling white light.
"..Hi, um- can I please o- order a lavender smoothie with kale?" she would ask the woman ordering the register in her typical stutter, her wings fluttering behind her as she would continue to stand on the ground, "oh! ..and six strawberry macarons please~!"
