Kasayee simply wanted an answer. It was a very simple question in the grand scheme of things. Yet what she got instead....

”Why not ask your spirits that? Or are they perhaps too young to tell you that? You don’t seem particularly interested in the answer though. Why spare time or effort for an uninterested audience?”

The response seemed like a lot of effort in of itself. Yet the thing continued more.

”You signed up for the same guild as I have, I saw.”

Still it did not answer her question.

”Did I interest you that much? Or does a druid such as yourself have anything else to seek from an inexperienced, amateurish guild?”

That most certainly wasn't an answer either. Kasayee began to contemplate how the sun felt against her skin. Her eyes started to become unfocused as the thing in front of her droned on. Warmth was better appreciated without the barrier of clothing many species insisted upon. It was sad, in a way, that they denied this simple but wonderful feeling.

"Listen."

Kasayee refocused on the thing with reluctance as they finished their lecture.

”But to start it off, asking a question like that without even sharing our names is a little cold, even if you don’t care about names, don’tcha think?”

Again with the names? Kasayee watched the thing as the thing watched her. It seemed to be expecting something from her. Which was odd as Kasayee was the one who had asked a question. A question, which, the thing hadn't answered yet.

 

"You talk too much and say so little." Kasayee said at last.

 

A pause.

"It's trying to distract. It cannot be allowed to continue."

"I think they want me to kill you. But I don't feel like it."
With that statement Kasayee turned from the thing and walked away aimlessly.

“I would be too busy in the upcoming month since my position as the guildmaster of an upstart Magic Guild would occupy most of my time, however once I could spare the time for a break, I will visit your mother and see how much I can help her. That is my promise.”

 

The extent of the operation, at the very least, would not be as risky or in-depth as it would be necessary for the operation to restore Serena to his actual body. Florentia was confident that at least she would be able to make Deku’s mother mostly functional as a human being again, even if her soul would still be unrepaired from the backlash she suffered. With Flo having said what she needed to say to Deku, she withdrew from the scene and disappeared into the crowds, letting the young man to think more about her offer.

 

And so, without it being noticeable, time had flown in a blink of an eye. Suddenly, it was already afternoon at the festival, and everyone had either packed up or prepared for the night attractions. Florentia, who had ended up getting carried away with talking with her new guild members as well as trying her best in enjoying the festival itself, returned to Cherry Heart’s stand to find it already closed, earlier than it should, with Celica inside. She had apparently passed out due to fatigue, something that Flo could only shake her head at.

 

“I told you not to overexert yourself, didn’t I? At least you sold out those trinkets you brought here before you passed out. It’s a wonder nobody robbed you, though.”

 

Taking a deep breath, Flo went inside from the back entrance of the stand, and used her magic to give a jolt of consciousness back to her friend. Thankfully, it seemed to work immediately as the younger woman had opened her eyes, though it seemed that she was still quite disoriented from the sudden surge of energy. Without waiting for Celica to properly address her presence, Flo moved to carry her on her back, and after putting all the necessary objects on the stand into her bag, she silently left the festival. Going to the opposite direction from the spectacles that had just started as night fell around Prunus, Flo focused herself on her destination, towards the outskirts of the seaside city.

 

“U...uh?” Along the way, Celica had seemingly awakened from her fatigue-induced daze.

 

“No questions now, please. We still have much work to do for the night.” Flo sighed. Her friend was really quite a lot of effort to deal with. Had it not for-

 

“Don’t worry about the stand, the next in line to rent it would tidy it up for us. Once we get to the guild building and do the daily overview, I believe you should try fixing the roofs and ceiling this time.

 

The complaints about leaks are starting to get annoying as of late.”

 

 

Days passed, and the Prunalia festival came into a close. The city streets were significantly quieter, now that there were no parades going on, and the seasonal merchants and travelers had mostly left the city, leaving behind the adventurers who had chosen to stay there.

 

It was the first morning after the end of the festival, throughout the city, people had already been moving past the yearly celebrations to continue their daily life with renewed vigor. That same spirit was shown at the outskirts of the city with the Cherry Heart building, old-looking as it was, had been adorned with bright red banners and flags on its inside and outside, signifying its rebirth. Florentia stood in the middle of the main hall with a solemn expression on her face, her eleven guild members before her.

 

“My name, for those that I hadn’t gotten the chance to introduce myself to, would be Florentia Philomel, your guildmaster from today onwards. Today marks the first day of Cherry Heart being active again as a guild. Some of you might be quite disappointed by the state of the guild now, however, it is not the essence of what being a Magic Guild is. Whether it’s for glory and adventure or your respective dreams that lie beyond that, the state of the guild now has nothing to do with what we want to achieve.

 

To continue with short introduction to this place, you should be able to see the quest board over there on your left side. Directly connected with Yggdrasil’s network, it will be constantly updated as time passes. In choosing a quest, keep in mind to not choose something beyond your own capability to handle. You are immediately able to choose a quest once this orientation is over, but outside of smaller quests, a minimum of 3 of you are needed before the quest can be taken.

 

Following that corridor over there to the left wing of the building, there would be the primary dormitory for you to stay with while in this guild. Due to its current condition, it is not mandatory for you to stay there, but we promise that we will get everything sorted out in a reasonable time period. Dinner and breakfast would be included if you chose to stay on the dormitory. The right-side dormitory is off-limits in the meantime, please do not go there. Also we had some issues on plumbing recently, so for the time being bathing would need to be done outside, near that river you would see when you come here.

 

With the talk of facilities done…”

 

Florentia paused for a moment. Making a long speech was harder than she thought.

 

“I would not enforce a lot of rules here, but unnecessary conflict between guild members and with people outside of the guild would be something that would not be tolerated. After all-”

 

“We’re supposedly the most Cheery-Hearted guild in Arbolia for a reason!”

 

“...Yeah, what she said.”

 

With Celica’s sudden appearance, the morning briefing came into an end. As a closing note, Flo urged the guild members to start checking out the quests and discuss with each other about which quests should they take. She also mentioned that due to the guild starting at the bottom rank, it would be best not to have too many expectations regarding the available quests, though she also stressed the importance of staying careful in spite of that. Once that was said, the guild members were then left to their own device in their new base of operation, while Flo withdrew from the scene in the meantime.

 

There were a lot of things to prepare, and little time for downtime. Once the guild members had made their choice, transport would be immediately arranged for them to reach their quest location. It was the first day of the guild’s operation, but there’s no time to just laze around if any of them wanted to succeed.

"I happen to be an expert of radically body-altering surgeries, so if you want to take the risk of an operation, perhaps I can help with mitigating the effects of the witch blade's spell, Perry."

 

REALLY?!

 

REALLY?!

 

Perry had to give up his whole life and start anew as a little girl, as this person could just fix it like that?! On the inside Perry was fuming at the possibility for such a simple answer, but on the outside, Serena remained calm, and with a happy demeanor. He listened to more of what the woman had to say, where she stated that although the operation is possible, it would be highly risky and have side effects. Then, once more in that near emotionless voice of hers, the guildmaster mentioned she could help Serena with acting like a girl. An interesting offer coming from someone like her.

 

"It would be best for you to explain your condition and the nature of that sword to Celica, that bluehead you talked to earlier, on your own before our guild properly start next week. I am not entirely sure yet on what to think about you, but for now I will believe what you said, and my offers to you will still remain. Free of charge. It is an insult to take payment when it's not necessary."

 

Wow. Say what you will about her harsh tone, the guildmaster had some good values. Free, completely body-altering operations? Healthcare must've improved in the eight months Serena was gone. As for telling the blue-haired Celica, Serena decided she would the next time they had a moment to talk in private. Just like with Flo knowing of Perry, Serena didn't want anyone but Celica knowing.

After several days of re-immersion into Perry's hometown, Serena was well and good to start questing for the Cherry Heart Guild. The leader had called a meeting, and when Serena turned up, she be gan to see just who else had signed up for this guild she had too. It was gonna be a hell of a ride.The guildmaster introduced herself as Florentia, she gave a short speech regarding the state of the guild hall at the moment, as well as pointing out the quest board and dormitories. Free bedding was one of the perks Serena missed so much from when she was Perry. Time to take it back.

 

After the speech was over, Serena finally took a good hard look at each member of the guild individually. Some looked crazier than others, but the one that caught her attention was a gray stone-like humanoid. She approached the figure with confidence. "Hey there. I'm Serena, one of the other members in this guild." A smile grew on Serena's face. "I was going to make a joke to get this boulder rolling, but I didn't want us to possibly get off to a rocky start." She gave a wink, then continued. "And who might you be?"

-The Punching Bag Wizard-

 

“I would be too busy in the upcoming month since my position as the guildmaster of an upstart Magic Guild would occupy most of my time, however once I could spare the time for a break, I will visit your mother and see how much I can help her. That is my promise.”

 

Deku gave off a small smile, nodding at Florentia as she turned to walk away. "Thank you guildmaster..." he said, bowing slightly in respect. To be honest, now he definitely needed to stay in the guild, if only to repay the kindness that Florentia presented him with.

 

He knew now that this was going to be a wild ride...

 

x393wz.jpg

 

Days passed and the festival drew to a close, and although Deku was sad to see such a beautiful festival end, he was psyched up beyond all compare for when it was time to officially join the Cherry Heart magic guild. And it was official the moment he received the Guild Mark...or tattoo...or whatever it was called.

 

While standing the little first day orientation or assembly was going on, Deku lowered his jacket's left side some, just to look and admire the guild mark on his left shoulder. Man...this is awesome! he thought, nodding before returning his attention back to Florentia's speech.

 

"You are immediately able to choose a quest once this orientation is over, but outside of smaller quests, a minimum of 3 of you are needed before the quest can be taken."

 

Deku smirked as he adjusted his jacket. They could immediately choose a quest after the orientation, that was awesome. Oh man...I can't wait! This is going to be amazing! he thought, throwing his hands behind his head.

 

Once the orientation ended, Deku made his way over towards the quest board and began to look at the list of quests. They were all Rank D and E, though it wasn't surprising to him. These were just new people in this guild and Florentia did say they'd be starting at the lowest rank possible. Though right now the problem was more like...what would possibly work for him? Looking through the quests, he saw one at the top...a D Rank: The Last Wyvern Hunt. Blinking a bit, Deku shook his head slightly.

 

"I'm looking for a mission...not a chance to kill myself." he sighed. "Wonder why they would even have that mission out in the open like that." Deku rubbed the back of his neck as another mission caught his eyes: Punish Steve, E Rank. Deku looked closely at this one, sighing heavily again. "Really? Beating up someone over cookies? Sheesh...that's just wrong. And to be honest, I don't think the person who would take this mission would be looked on in a good light afterwards."

 

Deku's eyes dragged along the board, until seeing a good one. An E Rank quest: Night at the Library. "Burglary...catching thieves? Plus at the same time benefiting and helping the community out?" he muttered to himself, before nodding. "Sounds like a good one to me! Looks like I'm going to the library tonight!"

The following days of the festival were a bit of a haze for Mina, the last thing she remembers was hanging out with some other festival goers, now she found herself in her room at a local inn, with her clothes all roughed up and drool coming from her mouth. She felt really tired and just wanted sleep in a bit more, but it was the end of the festival, so she had to find that guild, Cherry Heart was it? She dragged herself out of bed and stretched.

"Ugh... What happened last night?" As she stretched, she noticed something new on the back of her hand, a tattoo. It looked a bit like the symbol of the guild she signed up for, but that didn't click with her at first. "What... Did I do last night?"

Putting the past few nights behind her, Mina gathered up her things, straightened her clothes, and headed out the inn. "Ok! First day as a guild member, time to head out! Wait... They didn't tell me where the HQ was... Did they tell me?" Mina was truly confused, until the tattoo on her hand started to glow. She looked at it curiously and noticed a small, compass like needle of light was pointing from the tattoo in a random direction. "Huh... Neat." She followed the "compass" and soon found herself before a large, worn down building, but from the large banners strewn around with the same symbol of the tattoo on them, Mina knew this had to be the place.

She headed into the hall of the building where a large group of people were already waiting. Mina squeezed her way into the group and looked on as the guildmaster made herself known.

“My name, for those that I hadn’t gotten the chance to introduce myself to, would be Florentia Philomel, your guildmaster from today onwards. Today marks the first day of Cherry Heart being active again as a guild. Some of you might be quite disappointed by the state of the guild now, however, it is not the essence of what being a Magic Guild is. Whether it’s for glory and adventure or your respective dreams that lie beyond that, the state of the guild now has nothing to do with what we want to achieve.

Also we had some issues on plumbing recently, so for the time being bathing would need to be done outside, near that river you would see when you come here."

Mina listened carefully to everything Florentia spoke about, she was beaming with excitement, she couldn't wait to start.

“I would not enforce a lot of rules here, but unnecessary conflict between guild members and with people outside of the guild would be something that would not be tolerated. After all-”

“We’re supposedly the most Cheery-Hearted guild in Arbolia for a reason!” the blue haired lady from earlier summed it up in a simple way for the guildmaster.

“...Yeah, what she said.”

With that said, the guildmaster and her attendant left the guild members to themselves. Mina immediately darted towards the quest board to see what was available. Small and large scale quests filled the board, a few caught her eye, but the one she wanted to do was the Restoration Project. "This place could use a good fixer upper... Seems like a good a quest as any to start with." Mina was used to heavy lifting and if it meant fixing the guild hall up, then she was all the more happier to help.

Ro stared at the lizard druid blankly. For something that bothered to interrupt him in the middle of a snack, it had some nerve to just cut the conversation that it itself initiated in the first place. When it ended the conversation with talking about how the spirits wished for the being to kill Ro, he couldn’t help but burst out into laughter. That? Spirits and some girl? Kill him? He hadn’t heard such a good joke in several hundred years at least.

As the girl left, he shrugged and left in search of more treats to satisfy his sweet-tooth pangs he had been feeling recently.


All things end though, and the festival came to its end soon enough. The morning after, Ro hopped past the crowds nimbly, stepping lightly on roofs, ledges, and the occasional person’s head - much to their dissatisfaction. Spotting what seemed to be the other guild members in front of the Cherry Heart buidling, he leapt forward, skidding to a stop, just barely making it in time, and earning himself a mildly stern look.

As the guildmaster went through the opening speech, Ro’s ears perked at a vaguely familiar name. Florentia, hm… The gravekeeper, eh? If I remember… she’s that miss who turned it into a little flower garden. I think this guildmaster ain’t so bad. Upon hearing directions on how to pick a quest though, that took his attention like a new flower to a bee. Impatiently tapping his fingers lightly as he waited for the speech to be over so he could go ahead and get rolling, he paused when he heard something potentially even more enticing. An off-limits section of the dorm, eh? A mischievous grin broke out wide on Ro’s face.

Once the welcome speech ended, he bolted over to the bulletin board, scanning across the various messages, some in other languages as well. One immediately caught his eye. When he read over it, Ro couldn’t help but laugh in a slightly disturbing way, his eyes taking a manic delight. It was as if the quest was made for him. A lake overflowing with a strange flood of blue lotus? ”I guess you could say that lake probably literally stinks to high heaven right now though, ha!” Signing up in a quick fashion, his mind turned to his next goal immediately. ”To the right-side dorms!”

Dashing through the dorm halls and using his sense of directional alignment, he quickly found a door to the right-hand side of the dorms. As expected, it was locked. No matter. Climbing up the stairs, he leapt out the window boldly, using his arm as a swinging pivot to jump onto the window of the nearby dorm. As he tucked and rolled to protect himself from the fall, he looked up excitedly, expecting to see some forbidden magical devices or hidden secrets - and instead got a full-on view of some human lady changing out of her undergarments. Expectedly, she shrieked and started screaming, throwing a shoe at him - albeit one he caught instinctively. Waving his hand as an apology, he burst out through her door and leapt down the stairs.

”What in the Cataclysm? What’s so secret about-”

As he tumbled into the lobby, it made sense. It was a second section of the guild hall, presumably for the people who actually had money, judging by how much nicer the rooms and halls were. Well, Florentia did mention the guild was on a bit of hard times. Ro sighed. All this work and nothing big. It certainly seemed as if some of the people were a little upset though, so Ro turned to make his leave. Realizing he still had the lady’s shoe in his hand, he set it down half-abashedly, before bolting out.

”Aww frazzlin’ dadgummit, I’m gonna get chewed out by Flo’ later for this, ain’t I?”

The rest of the festival hadn't drawn too much of Dmitri's attention.  It was all almost too much to grasp at...the village he had come from was so small and homey, but this city had turned out to be quite the first step into his mage career.  He walked aimlessly until he rest at a local inn, too afraid to ask where Cherry Heart specifically was located.  He didn't want to inconvenience anybody after all, and he still had some coin gathered from his savings.  He spent most of his time in the inn, reading up on all of the literature he could find in his vicinity, rather than parade all willy-nilly outside like some kind of tourist!  

 

The day after, a white symbol appeared on his left pectoral, the symbol that was painted on the Cherry Heart sign imprinted onto his chest.  He almost wept at the sight of it.  It was now official, and he placed his hand over the part of his chest covered in his new devotion.

 

"They really are stuck with me, huh?~" He said with a tune and a smile on his face.   

 

The next day, he mustered up the courage to ask where Cherry Heart was located, and was surprised to receive looks of disbelief.  They pointed him in the right direction and he was on his way.  It seemed like he was one of the stragglers.  Looking at the crowd that had shown up, he could tell that this cast of characters was varied to say the least.  It almost made him nervous to talk to such wonderful looking people.  The speech was fantastic, and he finally realized he had forgotten to ask the Guildmaster's name!  He clocked himself in the head for being such a dunce.  

 

"That was so rude of me!!!"  He said, bowing out of necessity countless times.  "I'm sorry Ms. Florentia!"

 

After his scene, Dmitri dusted himself off and proceeded to take a look at the quest board.  When his eyes met the single word, 'library', they lit up with determination!  He stepped aback and rested his chin on the meeting point of his pointer finger and his thumb.  With a smile, he nodded.  

 

"Who knows what can be found in that Library?  Untold stories, new magics, erotica?!"  He looked at his surrounding guildmates, hoping no one would have heard such a shameful outburst.  If they did, he would bow again as he did to Florentia.

That thing was so strange. Kasayee pondered it as she went about gathering some food, a few beetles and an apple, around the city. It didn't seem to be the most intelligent of creatures due to being unable to answer her question but its body didn't seem designed for combat. Perhaps they were made to be a pet of sorts?

Whatever the case Kasayee would try and keep her distance to not stir up any spirits in the area.

Back in the tree, munching on her apple, she tried once more to find that wayward leaf.

The next day she found a strange symbol on her right thigh. It felt strange to have a marking put on her besides her druidic symbols but she would likely forget it was there after long.

Though it turned out to be a good thing as she couldn't remember the name of the guild she was to report to and she had no idea where it was. Thankfully the marking seemed to lead her towards a falling apart building. A small smile graced her lips as she saw its state. It was nice to see buildings that are falling closer to nature.

 

There were a lot of people there. Which often, in Kasayee's experience, meant a lot of questions. Which would be bothersome. And so she transformed into a lizard and moved into a location where she would be able to see the woman who was speaking with them. That's the guildmaster? But she wasn't even around earlier. Kasayee decided that it must be a strange sort of pack mentality where the girl who signed her on was the actual leader but this woman spoke on her behalf.

 

She tried to listen to the woman, she really did, but she got distracted watching a fly in a spider's web. She watched as the 8-legged creature moved in on their prey. Such a well designed predator. That nature can produce such a thing really was incredible wasn't it?

 

“We’re supposedly the most Cheery-Hearted guild in Arbolia for a reason!”

 

Kasayee instinctively turned towards the voice of the one she believed to be in charge. Only for the other woman to continue droning on. She evidently wanted them to go on quests. Right that was the thing with these guilds. Kasayee supposed that she should do one of those. She scurried towards the quest board indicated by that woman, where a man with glass in front of their eyes was standing, and transformed into her normal form right next to him.

She stared at the quests for a while without much enthusiasm. "Library. Sounds easy. That works." She said with a nod. Why would anyone bother to rob a library anyway? She'd read before and found it lacking. Plus the pages weren't very tasty. She was certain this would be an easy quest and she could go back to relaxing soon.

Prunus City/Auburn

"Utterly disgusting." Auburn let his thought slip out when he arrived at the guild building. Earlier that day a weird-looking guild mark magically appeared on his body in a part he would rather not mention ever, and following it led him to what looked like an abandoned building decorated with fancy red banners throughout. The mismatch was jarring and made the poor quality of the building stand out even more. He couldn't really complain though, he managed to get into a guild at all. For good or for worse he'd have to live with having a ghosthouse for a base of operations. Auburn suppressed the inner critic inside him and went in to listen to the guild orientation.

 

The guildmaster introduced herself as Florentia Philomel, and the blue haired girl that accepted him dropped by at the end of the speech Florentia was giving. After introductions were done, he ignored the quest board some of the others were gathering around, and walked towards his new boss.

 

"Guildmaster." He called to get her attention. "I am Auburn Peachfield, a new member of your guild."

 

"Although your blue haired companion accepted my application..." He turned slightly to her, whose name he regrettably forgot, "Is it really fine for me to be here?"

 

What plagued Auburn for the past day since getting accepted, was the lack of any comment on his disability. He was used to scorn or mockery or at least a comment, but the lack of any of that confused him more than he would like to admit. The doubt humbled him, for the time being. "This is a magic guild, can you guys really afford to have someone who can't use magic at all? Because that's kind of fu- That's not exactly wise. I'm glad I was accepted in but are you guys really sure you can revive this guild into something great?"

"This is a magic guild, can you guys really afford to have someone who can't use magic at all? Because that's kind of fu- That's not exactly wise. I'm glad I was accepted in but are you guys really sure you can revive this guild into something great?"

 

Listening to the voice behind him as she was going towards Celica's office, Florentia turned around to see who was talking. One of the guild members had approached her. Auburn Peachfield, Flo was still able to remember him. The potion maker, the one that mentioned that he couldn't use magic. With the content of his words, reeking of doubt and self-defeatism, Flo was tempted to ignore him. But...nah, Celica wouldn't forgive her if she did that. It was hard to not be dismissive of his attitude, but finally after a while, Flo spoke.

 

"You're not worse off than us. As a guild, we're starting from the very bottom, just like you, who are not able to perform magic. Yet you, despite being conscious of your shortcoming, had dared to register to this guild in the first place. I am taking it as a sign of your commitment in this guild, and a promise from you, despite of your perceived weakness, you would do no less than your best for the sake of this guild.

 

The greatest guilds were not made by the strongest mages. Hard work, dedication, and unrelenting determination are what we're looking for in our guild members. Only consider yourself inadequate if you are incapable of even that. In which case, it's better off that you leave.

 

Any more mention of whether you deserved to be here or not, and I will personally kick you off the nearby cliff. Maybe that would push you to miraculously perform magic, if that's all you can think about on how you can make yourself useful."

 

Realizing that the longer she talked the bigger the chance of her addressing be more condescending, Flo turned around and continued her way towards Celica's office, where her friend had already waited for her.

Celica stretched her arms a bit as she noticed the three guild members that ended up taking her quest, still recovering from Florentia's harsh anti-stress therapy routine. She was visibly tired and her dress was quite disheveled after a few days of not changing, but she was still smiling despite of that. The wagons would have transported the other members to their respective quests, although she was worried that the guild ended up taking two D-rank quests from the start. Ah, at least one of them had Flo directly supervising it, nothing too bad would happen there. What was important now would be to deal with her own quest. She had Mina the catgirl, Fen the daughter of the owner of that lovely restaurant, and Auburn, the potion maker with a snobbish air around him. It's a nice crowd to have for here.

 

"Alright, so a short introduction first. I am Celica Cannes, the guild's secretary, and not really a mage or an adventurer. I'm here mainly to help Flo around, she's pretty terrible at administration if I had to be honest. But that aside...

 

As you know the guild building really needed repairs. We have been starting the repairs since two months ago, but we're short on funds so lately we had to do it on our own, the two of us. It's far from being interesting as hunting ferocious beasts or anything, but...well, I would personally thank you all for taking this quest! So, we are starting with the right dormitory hall, dealing with the ceiling and finish tidying and cleaning the room. After that, if any of you are skilled in dealing with plumbing, then we might be able to do that...otherwise, there is this basement that I just found recently..."

 

Celica's voice trailed off at the mention of the basement. She was seemingly trying to remember if there was anything else they should do, but she then shook her head, feeling that what she said should be enough for now. With a smile, she gave a sign for the present guild members to follow her to the aforementioned dormitory room. As the door was opened, the guild members would be able to see that the hall was really spacious, although it only had around fifteen beds inside of the room. Half of the beds didn't even have frames supporting them yet, lying right on top of the floor with their unfinished or broken frames on the side. Three big wardrobes were on the room, which implied that the guildmembers were meant to share them. The walls were looking like a mess with paint that were barely there, and the ceiling had big holes on them, allowing the sunlight to come down at several points. The windows at least had been washed and adorned with freshly bought curtains, a contrast to the horribleness of the rest of the room. There weren't even any separators yet to give privacy to the guild members, and the floor was quite dusty, with the stereotypical spider webs littering the place at some points.

 

"Well...we mostly only got to move the furnitures here and removed the debris, but we haven't got the time to do anything else yet. Since you'll be sleeping here tonight...it'd be nice for you to do your best! Also, the ladder if you want to fix the ceiling is at the northwest corner of the room, along with some of the materials. Don't worry, I'll help hold to the ladder!

 

Now, let the quest begin!"

Prunus City/Auburn
What he received from the guildmaster to quell his moment of self-doubt was not quite what he expected. The 'motivational speech' was given with little emotion but the choice of words evoked a lot of thought. It certainly worked, although he was pissed off a fair bit from being on the receiving end. Tch, kick me off a cliff. If that actually sufficed I will lick your shoes every single for the rest of my life...
 
It worked because it pissed him off. He would not admit it but being told, even hypothetically, to leave the guild, made him annoyed. And then being told to not bring it up again silenced him. Now he couldn't even vent. He decided he was going to become the cornerstone of this magic guild and show Florentia, and brag in her face. He'll do it.
 
Although such ambitious thoughts filled him, in reality he was still stunned from Florentia's pep talk and before he could response she walked away.

Commencing Quest: Cherry Heart Restoration Project

Prunus City/Auburn
"Hmph. I refuse to live in a guild house that's worse than the stables. I'll do whatever it takes to make this place fit for actual human habitation." It did not take long for him to recover his smug, so to speak. Indeed, the moments of self-doubt he has been displaying in the past day or two was unnatural, and all of it was blown away now, albeit no feelings of gratefulness for the benefactor remained.

 

He stood alongside two of his new guildmates and in front of the blue haired woman from earlier, who seemed to be his second boss, of sorts. The girl, Celica Cannes, explained to them what they'd be doing while everyone else was away, and Auburn tried not to forget her name this time. When she mentioned cleaning, Auburn could not resist grinning to himself. It was child's play for him to brew up some cleaning agent that's better than anything else on the market (this was by no means because Auburn was an expert on brewing toiletries but because the cleaning agent industry tends to cut corners, therefore self-brewing is often much more effective). That alone should get the work done quickly.

 

But when she brought the three of them up however, his grin turned into a grimace. "This is much worse than I thought..."

 

He turned to the other two besides him, both young girls around his age. One was scrawny, one was not. Unfortunately he was the only man here so he'd have to do the heavylifting. Although, being the most masculine person in the room for once does feel nice. "...Right, let's get to work. You, the younger looking one." He pointed to the white haired. "Hold this a bit." He handed her a vial containing a basic clear solvent. "Black haired, go fetch the mop and bucket, leave the ladder alone for now."

 

His hands dug into his potion bag, pulling out various other vials. He ended up with a flask in one hand and two capped vials on the other. "Behold! I shall now concoct a Detergent. Although this shithole, er, pig house is more or less beyond saving, this will make our cleaning proceed much more smoothly! You both may stare in awe."

Mina watched as the other guild members were sent off to do their quests, leaving only herself and two other members to take care of the Restoration Project. "Well, well, it's really nice to have a few helping hand here~" Mina smiled at the blue-haired girl's enthusiasm, though the other two guild members didn't seem to share her enthusiasm.

"Alright, so a short introduction first. I am Celica Cannes, the guild's secretary, and not really a mage or an adventurer. I'm here mainly to help Flo around, she's pretty terrible at administration if I had to be honest. But that aside...

As you know the guild building really needed repairs. We have been starting the repairs since two months ago, but we're short on funds so lately we had to do it on our own, the two of us.

So, we are starting with the right dormitory hall, dealing with the ceiling and finish tidying and cleaning the room. After that, if any of you are skilled in dealing with plumbing, then we might be able to do that...otherwise, there is this basement that I just found recently..."

So cleaning up the right dormitory hall, a little bit of plumbing work, and a mysterious basement. This really was sounding like more of a quest than a clean up job, all the more reason that Mina wanted to get this done as best as possible. Celica led the guild members to the dormitory and it was anything but clean. Holes in the ceiling, cobwebs everywhere, beds without any frames, aside from the clean curtains adorning the windows this place really was a big mess.

"Well...we mostly only got to move the furnitures here and removed the debris, but we haven't got the time to do anything else yet. Since you'll be sleeping here tonight...it'd be nice for you to do your best! Also, the ladder if you want to fix the ceiling is at the northwest corner of the room, along with some of the materials. Don't worry, I'll help hold to the ladder!

Now, let the quest begin!"

"You can count on us Celica!" Mina stated with a cheerful grin. She was thinking of maybe getting the ladder first and taking care of the holes in the ceiling, all the while rolling up her sleeves for the task at hand. But before she could get to work, one of the guild members, a man who had a faint chemical smell to him, started giving out orders.

"Black haired, go fetch the mop and bucket, leave the ladder alone for now." Who died and made this guy boss? Mina gave him a bit of a look, not a mean one more like a "Are you serious?" look, before heading off to get said mop and bucket.

Coming back with the aforementioned items, the man had some vials with chemicals in them. "Behold! I shall now concoct a Detergent. Although this shithole, er, pig house is more or less beyond saving, this will make our cleaning proceed much more smoothly! You both may stare in awe." Mina was giving the man the same "Are you serious?" look as before, this guy really was a bit of an airhead, more than likely thinks of himself being above Mina and the other girl. "Can we maybe... Get on with cleaning the hall instead of showing off? And my name is Mina by the way, Mina White, not Black Haired..." she stated with a small smile at the end to show that she wasn't trying to be rude.

The following days of the festival had come and gone, with not much incident happening. She had felt relived that the boy she crashed into earlier didn't actually seem entirely upset by it, but she had worked a bit frantically to make amends in that moment. While she had gotten to know more about the boy, Vincent as his name was, the two didn't actually spend all that much time together and the day had just gone on with her finding a place to stay. Waiting out the rest of the festival, the girl had mostly stayed to herself in the inn, trying to ready herself for what was essentially the start of a new life for her. 

 

 

On the morning of the festival's end, Fen had woken up, noting that today was the day she was to report to the Cherry Heart headquarters. After getting herself all dressed up and ready to get going out to the world beyond the inn, the girl started to take deep breaths. As she had finally mustered up the confidence to get going, pumping herself up, she stopped as she had made her way outside. With her mind slightly going blank as she realized that she had no idea where anything in this town actually was. As she started to panic, a faint glow appeared on her left shoulder, resembling a mark similar to the one she had seen at the guild's stand. With a needle to seeming to point from it, the girl simply followed where it was going to, as she had no real idea where else to go, until she had finally made her way to a large, somewhat decrepit looking building. 

 

Once she had gotten inside, settling herself, she looked around to see who else had signed up for the guild. The guild was full of all different kinds of people, some who seemed rather calm and friendly, some who looked threatening, and there was even a giant hulking stone golem. Her eyes seemed to continue to drift to it, wondering what exactly it would do, though her attention was briefly grasped by something else, as she could have sworn that she saw a lizard scampering about. She had known buildings to have mice problem but was unfamiliar with lizard ones, wondering if this building had an excess of them. Regardless, her observations were cut short as an older looking woman took center stage. 

 

Introducing herself as the guild master, Fen felt the already firm and slightly menacing pressure the woman exuded intensify a bit, and listened as she laid out the ground rules and expectations they would have for the guild. She felt a bit relieved that the guild would give them a place to stay, and food for meals, though she nodded to the woman's statement about the area that was off limits. Once all the matters were settled and the guild master, and the girl who had signed them up for the guild first, had finished speaking the group had all decided to go congregate to the missions listing. Going there herself, though sticking to the back not wanting to get in anyone's way, Fen had gotten to the board later then the rest of the people there. Looking at them, none of the jobs seemed to be something her, albeit limited, skill set would help her accomplish, though there was one in particular that caught her attention. 

 

One to do with hunting wyverns. Winged fliers, sometimes embellished as minor dragons, that were quite fierce and territorial. Fen was slightly captivated in her thoughts about them, wondering how best to use the parts of their bodies for dishes, as she had never actually cooked with Wyvern before. However, the idea of fighting one of those things was somewhat terrifying to her and she didn't even know how she'd go about it, as fighting fliers wasn't really something she was all that capable of. As she looked around, seeing who else was going on the journey, she saw that it was the menacing looking man who had had the horned helmet earlier, Vincent, who was somewhat intimidating in his own way, and the guild master herself. Feeling an intense pressure coming from the group, the girl figured it was best that she sit it out for now, and simply looked at the board for something else. Seeing that there was a quest simply dedicated to helping fix up the guild itself, the girl looked around at the building. Seeing that it was in a pretty bad state of disrepair, and that she would be living here from now on, the girl figured it would be a good idea to help the repairs out. Besides, she had to help clean her restaurant back home, so she had felt it was something that even she could do. Nodding confidently to herself, the girl had signed up for it. 

 

 

 

Once everyone had left, all that was left in the guild was her, a girl with cat ears and tail, and a somewhat feminine looking male with piercing red-eyes. Soon Celica, the blue haired girl, had came to greet them and thank them for their efforts in restoring the guild. Eagerly, the girl followed after Celica as she went to show them the first area they'd be cleaning up, the dorms. While she wasn't expecting much, the blond haired boy had expressed her thoughts aloud. Subconsciously nodding at the statement, the girl looked around wondering where to actually start. While dusting and washing the area would be good, that alone was not the major issue with the area. They would need more than just a bit of water to fix the walls, and would need someway to get more wood or something to help repair the bed frames and holes in the walls and ceilings. Fen wasn't quite sure where to start, but thankfully the blond haired boy seemed to take charge of the situation. 

 

The boy exuded an aura of confidence and seemed to enjoy directing the girls around, so as he simply gave her some weird vial to hold she simply nodded, saying, "o-okay." She wasn't quite sure what it was that he had handed her, but it seemed paramount to what he was planning on doing. Pulling out more vials from his pack, he then stated that he was about to make detergent, which she had never actually seen done before, and watched in awe as he went about his business. As the cat girl seemed to be less impressed with his spectacle, she then introduced herself to the group. While not the best at conversation, she figured this was as good a time as any to introduce herself and said, "h-hello Mina. I suppose my name, um, is Fen and uh," trying to imitate what Mina had said earlier though not in no ways a harsh tone said, "and uh, it's not 'younger looking one.' If you uh, would be so kind, what may we call you?" She directed the question towards the alchemist.

Seeing the three working like this warmed Celica's heart as she watched them talking to each other and working together to fix the mess. The red-eyed boy was rough, but he was clearly very focused on the objective despite of that, and his brewing skill definitely weren't just for show...if his confidence was grounded in any reality, but there wasn't any reasoning not to believe that. Although, his attitude did seem to almost spark some conflict, with how Mina looked at him, although it didn't escalate to much more concerning things thankfully. Fen went along with the two and seemed to be a little awkward in the situation, not that Celica would blame her. Really, the sight of these strangers working together for the task she gave them made her not regret her decision to ignore fixing that dormitory hall yet.

 

"It's up to you three on what would you rather do first, but I imagine that cleaning the floor wouldn't be wise before cleaning the ceiling, mainly since..."

 

Saying that, Celica went to the corner of the room with the stair, and knocked on the wall, And seemingly, the small vibration on the sensitive, weakened structure traveled through the structure, and as if to make her point, some debris, dust, and other things fell from the ceiling across the room soon after.

 

"...huh, that went worse than expected. Perhaps I should consider actually rebuilding this entire wing later.

 

Oh well, good luck with this~! I'll help you whenever I can, promise!"

The lack of impressed responses ticked him off. He turned his eyes sideways, not looking at either of them. "Hmph. My name is Auburn Peachfield. Potion brewer. You may address me as-"

 

Just then, the secretary had interrupted him, most likely unintentionally. Celica quickly showed the three how badly the guildhouse's state of disrepair was with a gentle push to the walls. Unceremoniously, some of the soot from the roof dropped into the flask Auburn held up, and the ground. "..." Auburn did nothing but pause for a few seconds. Then he lit up.

 

"Secretary Celica! Some wooden planks or boards or anything of the sort, if you have any around bring it over. And a repair kit." He then pointed to the black haired girl. "Put the bucket back, black ha- white ha- no, Mina White. You and I, we're going up to do some preparatory cleaning."

 

"You, uh, Fen. Catch." He threw the flask, that he somehow put a cap on in-between all that, towards her gently. "Put those down somewhere near, we'll have a use for them yet. And if either of you know some dumb old spell that'll fix this room instantly, say it now."

 

This sudden composure was not what it seemed to be. Inside his head was nothing but a lot of profanities repeated over and over again. On one hand, he wanted to curse out loud for a minute and a half at the sorry state of this place he was going to live in. The other wanted to tear the entire building down entirely. He compromised. He was going to destroy the place and renovate it as if his life depended on it.

Fen and Auburn, the two guild members were certianally unique, in personality and skills. "It's up to you three on what would you rather do first, but I imagine that cleaning the floor wouldn't be wise before cleaning the ceiling, mainly since..." Mina turned to see Celica prove a major point, the ceiling was worse than it looked. With a small tap on the wall, Celica had caused dust, debris, and other things to fall from the ceiling.

 

"...huh, that went worse than expected. Perhaps I should consider actually rebuilding this entire wing later.

 

Oh well, good luck with this~! I'll help you whenever I can, promise!"

 

​Auburn was obviously very ticked about this development, "Secretary Celica! Some wooden planks or boards or anything of the sort, if you have any around bring it over. And a repair kit."

​He then started giving more orders to Mina and Fen. "Put the bucket back, black ha- white ha- no, Mina White. You and I, we're going up to do some preparatory cleaning."

 

"You, uh, Fen. Catch." He threw the flask, that he somehow put a cap on in-between all that, towards her gently. "Put those down somewhere near, we'll have a use for them yet. And if either of you know some dumb old spell that'll fix this room instantly, say it now."

 

​She had already rolled up her sleeves, so Mina settled for cracking her knuckles. "I may not know any of those fancy spells, but believe it or not I am a heavy lifter. We got this." She stated heading over to get the ladder.

As the man, Auburn, introduced themselves, Fen was quite interested in the craft that they had taken up. She knew next to nothing about the actual process behind Potion Brewing, though, rather than asking anything more on it, she simply left him to creating his detergent. However, soon the trio was interrupted as the guild leader - Fen wasn't actually quite sure what Celica's official title was - had come in to give them advice about what to do first. As she went to go show them the condition of the ceiling, Fen let out a small, "eep," as debris seemed to fall onto the ground, only making the floor's condition worse as well.  Looking with concern at the debris, Fen briefly wondered if it was safer to not have a roof at all. Shaking her head clean of the thought, Auburn had started giving out orders to the two of them.

 

Listening intently to his direction, she mentally prepared herself for the toss, and seemed to catch the flask without much issue as it was tossed to her. Putting the two things down as instructed, she then heard Auburn and Mina's notes about magic. All she said on the matter was, "my magic, uh, wouldn't really be all that, um, useful. Sorry." Seeing the cat eared girl go to the ladder, Fen knew that the two of them could probably handle cleaning the roof themselves, but there was nothing she could really clean on the floor as it was. Not wanting to feel useless she said, "I'll uh, go um. Wood, yeah, I'll see if I can find any wood to use." As she went to go for her task, she realized she had no idea where any of this would be and thus looked to Celica with a nervous expression. "Um, do you know where I could uh, find...any?"

"Secretary Celica! Some wooden planks or boards or anything of the sort, if you have any around bring it over. And a repair kit."

 

"Wood planks and boards coming~"

 

Celica was amused with how fast Auburn took charge, and she happily obliged to follow his order despite how sour he was looking. She went to the other corners of the room and brough all the planks and boards that was left from the previous renovations to him. It wasn't much, but it should help. She also brought a toolbox and some packages of nails to him too. A repair kit seemed to be something too fancy to find there however. Nevertheless, everyone was working, and it's quite nice to see. Noticing Mina was carrying the large stairs on her own, Celica decided to approach her.

 

"Hey Mena, just a tip but it's best to not rest this on just any opening because some of them are pretty weak. Say, the one over there..." As she said this, Celica pointed to one of the opening on the northwest part of the hall. Not long after, the area around that ceiling opening crumbled on its own, with the support planks falling into the ground afterwards, creating loud thuds as it hit the floor. A closer inspection would make it clear that the planks had been eaten by insects and time and was in a really poor and brittle condition. "Last thing you want is falling from that height, after all. But I think the main structure itself are still strong, so as long as you don't try your luck on the support planks, you should be fine~"

 

 "I'll uh, go um. Wood, yeah, I'll see if I can find any wood to use.

 

Um, do you know where I could uh, find...any?" 

 

"Hm?"

 

Just after she finished talking with Mina, Fen approached Celica with that question. Seeing how most of the spare woods had been given to Auburn earlier, there were nothing else that could be used for the ceiling, and well, the earlier wood wouldn't be enough, thinking about it. Celica spent some time to figure out something, and seeing the undone beds, she decided on a way out.

 

"You can use the frames from the unfinished beds. Don't worry about sleeping on the floor, I'll figure out something to cover for that.

 

Hopefully."

 

In hindsight, perhaps intentionally neglecting the hall just for this quest wasn't her wisest decision in how much extra work she got from it, though it's also since Celica ended up involving herself more with the quest instead of just observing them. She liked it better this way anyway. Though, looking at the beds, she panickingly realized that she forgot to buy bedcovers, pillows, and blankets, and the guild funds probably wouldn't be enough to cover buying eleven sets of them yet. She tried her best to hide her expression and started talking with the first thing that came across her mind so hopefully the three didn't worry about her.

 

"You know, looking at the ceiling, it felt like it could fall on us anytime no matter what we do. It's a bit scary isn't it? Though, sleeping underneath the night sky seems fun..."

"I refuse to sleep knowing a random bug can just fly in from above into my mouth." After getting Mina to carry the stairs and the Secretary and Fen to provide the materials, it really seemed like one who did the least heavylifting was the only man in the room. He really was getting carried away, ever since regaining his confidence from the 'lecture' the guildmaster gave him. Of course, Auburn felt no need to hurry to fix that. He can let his talents make up for it. The cleaning detergent turned out to be unneeded but that wasn't the only potion in his arsenal.

 

"Eheheheh, behold my next potion, that will surely make fixing this bloody roof a simple matter." Sitting on the ladder held firm by Celica, Auburn pulled out his next wonder. This time it was a sticky white liquid of sorts with a nasty odor should the bottle be uncapped. "This is what I decided to name Super Glue. I mixed in a secret ingredient to the usual glue recipe. It is water resistant and will make sure no liquid leaks in, even with the faulty fix job on the roof that our current attempt will turn out to be."

 

He waited for a moment for some reactions again. He doubted he would get any admiration, so he moved on. "Tch. Alright then, Secretary Celica, hold the ladder properly for now. Fen, hand me the boards one by one! And also make sure Secretary doesn't let go of the ladder, I fear for my life with just her alone," He thought to add a light jab for fun. "Mina White, you're coming up with me to hold the nails, let's get this done in an hour."

 

An hour had then passed. And then two. Three.

 

Finally, they got to the final hole in the roof that was now mostly rebuilt from scratch. It was a long journey, with how truly ruined the roof was. At one point Auburn almost fell off a support but naturally he was not that clumsy. Auburn promptly received the last wooden plank. He hammered the nail in and then applied the last of the third bottle of glue he had to concoct on the spot during the three hours. It was finished.

 

"We're done!" For once he forgot to keep up his act and let out genuine, fulfilling laugh. He was outcheering even Celica down there. He turned around to Mina and almost offered a handshake, but his hand midway in the air he remembered who he was. "...Well now, let's get down."

 

Unceremoniously he walked to the edge of the roof, looked down and realized.

 

They were fixing the roof from inside the room, the stepladder was hoisted from inside. He had come up and closed the last hole. There was no way down.

 

 

"We got that done with at least..." It had taken some time to get them both down again and very quickly Auburn's rare bout of pleasant mood disappeared like dust in the air.

 

He grimaced when he walked back into the dormitory room again. Without sunlight from above, the room looked even darker and more unpleasantly messy than before from the mess they made repairing the roof. He would really rather put it off right now, he was still tired from hammering in all the planks earlier and although he tried his hardest to breathe normally, anyone slightly attentive could tell he was out of breath. To put it simply he wanted to procrastinate. Conveniently he remembered something Celica mentioned earlier. "Where did you say the basement was again, Miss Secretary?."

Upon hearing Celica's response to her question, the girl was slightly unsure about how much their fixing up of the guild would actually amount to, but had decided to go along with the suggestion anyway. As she broke down the unattended bed frames, Auburn seemed to be making another product. As he talked about his "water resistant super glue," Fen looked in wonder, giving a small clap as he explained the concoction. However, with that out of the way, the group had then got on to fixing the roof of the room. Ferrying boards of wood up to them, Fen watched as the duo that went up the ladder started to get to work, slowly but surely filling in the hole that was above them. While she was going up and giving them planks of wood, she briefly wondered how it was that Auburn and Mina had planned to get down from the roof once they were done. However, Auburn had seemed to have a good handle on the situation already, so Fen figured he had already thought it out.

 

They did not. 

 

 

With that out of the way, the group was now all back in the guild hall, most likely ready to move on to their next task. Before that, though, Fen realized something. They had been working for hours on end and hadn't really taken any breaks to speak of. So, Fen went over to her own bag and said, "um, before we move on to the next task. Um," pulling out a bag that seemed to have been chilled, the girl opened it to say, "I made these the night before. So, I'm sorry that they aren't fresh, and it probably isn't that filling but I hope you enjoy it." With it, she opened the bag to revealed crisped apple slices with a coating of brown sugar and cinnamon . In order to be not spoiled, the apples were kept under cold temperatures by way of Fen's magic, and so they were cool to the touch.
