"I received this note from an unknown sender. There was a mage half dead and had no memory of what had happened to him that had arrived at the.... Guildhall and he gave me the letter. Of course I tried to help the man but...I just...I just couldn't save him he was beyond my help."
Steven balled his fist in a ball as he remembered the day....
It was a cold morning and the clouds in the sky darkened the guild hall of .... Steven sat quietly in the corner reading a magazine he received from a friend of his in the guild. His friend Jonas was sitting next to him and most of the guild was gone to attend a festival. The guildhall chatted and talked quietly but it was nothing special just friends being friends and chatting. When a man in torn sack clothes pushed opened the door and fell face first on the floor. Steven and Jonas rushed over along with the other mages. Steven questioned the man who had so many scars and broken bones in non-vital parts it was ugly. Bones prodded from his body and he was bleeding and missing fingers and toes. The worst part was he had magic symbols forcibly drawn on his skull and had one eye gorged out. The man's last words were of fear and pain as he handed the note over to Steven. Steven however refused to let the man die he pushed and pushed using his magic to try to revive him however the guild doctor, who had stayed behind to make sure no one would get to seriously hurt declared him dead. The letter was the last thing the man had and despite wanting to cry and mourn the loss of such a strong man he took the note and read it. It filled him with rage and pain and other emotions he'd not felt in a long long time. He broke a desk and yelled in outrage he could only think of one thing. Go after the creator of this letter. He needed help though he was only one man and there was only one person he knew of he could trust with this task. Even his guild master, one of the strongest mages alive, was not one he would bring along. He had to find Wallace...
Then when he had arrived in the city he knew that he would find Wallace and he knew he would convince him no matter what it took. When he had finally found the place he knew that a tournament was being held as he had to stop by Twilight Ogre for directions. He had spent the entire time of the tournament just sitting then in the real world it was about four minutes and in the fifth he went upstairs as he knew the spell would end soon.
Wallace grabbed ahold of the note and started reading it however he had to admit it was pretty worn. The damn thing felt like sand paper in his hands. He was angry that Steven picked now of all times with all things happening in Fairy Tail he needed to be here for them. Jormundur had given him responsibilities to uphold and he was reluctant to leave them. But the contents of the letter disturbed him greatly. It also angered him to a furious extent.
"Dear Lord Steven Mikagawa of ....,
My name is pointless however you would be interested to know what happened to the Prodical Mage of Sabertooth Damion Wilmore. The man who vanished off the face of the Earth so long ago and has never been heard from since. I call to tell you that I expect you’re quite anxious to know where he is or where I am so you can question me personally. However I am not interested in your concerns for your friend. I want you to bring Wallace Wilmore of Fairy Tail and at least two others and head north to the village of Mork, a small mining village held by a rich man, there you will find the first clue. Look for a man named Dian Saura a vicious business man and if you can beat him he will give you another clue. I hope you come soon and remember the longer you wait the more and more I will likely vanish. I hope to see you soon.
From, an Anonymous friend
Wallace crumbled the paper in pure anger and his body started to tremble as his veins in his arms and hands pumped harder. Then Wallace's dragon force mode forcibly turned on due to this anger. Electricity sparked all around him setting the lighting in the room on a haywire frenzy. The look in his eye was pure murder he was angry beyond belief however Steven did his best to contain his young friend's anger by putting his hand on the man's body the electricity not hurting him in the least in fact it did not even touch him. The light bulbs all popped and Steven simply stood there but he pulled down his hood and went over to his friend's brother and his friend, if Wallace would even call him that, and looked him in the eye.
"Will you join me?"
is all he said the two had no more long speeches, no more friendly greetings, and no comradely. This was all business for both of them. They will no longer deal with people who made fun of them.
"Yes....come with me down stairs."
Wallace said getting up and opening the door. He did not even leave Dragon Force mode. He did not even deal with the steps he jumped down and landed with a heavy thud. He stormed out of the guild hall not caring if anyone saw him. Steven slowed down and sighed it figured in his rage Wallace would rush home to gather what he needed then go off. He knew the man would wait for him at the path north to the city. He turned and looked over the guild mages.
"Excuse me members of Fairy Tail I may not be from your guild but your friend Wallace is. He needs assistance on an S Rank Quest. I'm also going on that S-Rank quest and I'll-we will need help. I need your assistance on this personal quest of mine Please if you are come to the north gate and be prepared it will be a long journey. "
Steven's voice was clear and sound and his voice practically gave off an aura of kindness and sadness. He meant all his words and was as humble as he could be at the moment. He did not show his face but he then bowed humbly and thanked them for their time before walking off. However things Wallace growled in anger as he walked towards his house fast and still in rage mode. But not of Fairy Tail's members of the failure of the tournament, but just in how casual the letter was and how foolish it made him look like he was some sort of damned PAWN
!!!! THIS WAS BLASPHEMY AT ITS DAMN FINEST! HE'D FIND THIS GUY AND KILL
HIM! Wallace said to himself breathing in heavily.
Steven rushed forward and eventually caught up with Wallace. He sighed and apologized for his friend's behavior sighed and then back flipped over the railing perfectly, twirled in midair and landed with not even a tap on the concrete floor below. "Please forgive my friend he....we....are both in dire need of getting a move on."
Steven said politely to the two people he did not know however he showed the two citizens his neck and promised that he would make sure his friend did not cause trouble. It clearly had another guild sign on it and it was not a Fairy Tail symbol. He then ran to catch up with Wallace and wondered how this journey would start and end..
