Tikahl sighed with relief as the fire died away. Her mind was spinning as she recollected her thoughts. Suddenly, her stomach growled at her. "I'm pretty hungry. I should take a mission to pay for a meal tonight." She said as she reached into her empty pouches. Getting up and dusting herself off she walked back through town and to the guild. Opening the door slowly, she peeped inside. 'I don't see Natsu... I really don't want to fight with him right now.' Her stomach growled again in agreement. She walked straight to the mission board, looking them over. "Hm... let's see. Oh! This one looks great!" She pulled the piece of paper off the board, looking it over.
Notice: Missing Girl
Description: My young daughter, Aeternita, is lost in this harsh world. She can't defend herself, she'll surely perish if not found immediately. Please see the sketch, and find my daughter!
Reward: 500,000 jewels
"Five hundred thousand jewels? I could buy food for the rest of the month with that! And, that poor girl. I have to find her!" She folded up the mission request with the sketch on it, putting it in her pouch. "Tikahl! Let's fight! Ready?" She could hear Natsu's voice behind her. As she turned, Erza moved with lightning quick reflexes. Her fist met firmly into Natsu's gut. "Natsu, leave Tikahl alone." Her voice was harsh. Turning to Tikahl, Natsu laying out cold on her fist still, "Please, go on your mission. I'll take care of him." She lifted Natsu up. Tikahl bowed to Erza, and quickly walked out the guild with her new mission.
"My first mission, I'm so excited! Where should I start looking? Maybe I should go to the forest and ask if they've seen her." She walked briskly to the forest. Standing on the edge, she remembered her battle with Leveren. Equip: Hammers of the Eagle." Her two hammers appeared in her hands. "I shouldn't let my guard down. Especially now that I'm a Fairy Tail wizard!" With that, she began walking through the forest. "Forest, please guide me to this missing girl." A slight breeze blew Tikahl straight ahead. She smiled, "Thank you, Great Forest. You're always there for me." She followed the breeze. Her hunger had driven her to the point where keeping her guard up wasn't happening. Suddenly, she tripped over something she didn't notice in the dark.
"What did I trip over?" She rubbed her head as she got up to see. 'Is... is that a human?' She prepared her hammers, unsure of what would happen.
