"HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY! WAKE UP!!" "EEeeeh. Five more minuuuuutes.." I moaned to Erza. "..it's too early to go to school..." "There hasn't been a regularly scheduled sort of school for 2 years you lazy buffoon." She pointed out. "I swear, Natsu's been rubbing off too much on you. In any case, you've got to get up sometime today..." *Huff* "Fine." I shook off the covers of my bed, then straightened up to stretch when Natsu Slammed the door open to my bedroom and proceeded to yell in excitement. "OOOOOOOOOOHHH YYEEEAAAAAAH!! Another day of adventure and excitement! I got a good feeling you guys! I think that we'll really find the guild hall today!" "What makes you so confident Natsu?" Before he answered, I remembered that I had no friends to find in this new world. I had searched and found the corpses of all, but a couple. I still didn't know if they were alive, or if I just hadn't found their bodies yet. That being said, I didn't have as high a priority as my companions did in this new world. When the world fusion happened, my soul was bound to these two, and thus I survived the horrible event. See we (or the "new world" more like) called those who's souls were forged together "Linkers." The way it works (or so far as I know) is, that when our worlds combined, it permanently bound our souls as one, and at the same time, exchanged trace's of each of ourselves. Since I was bound with two of my absolute favorite anime characters, I gained some of their abilities, but because I was one of the rare few that was bound to more than one character, I had a combination of their abilities. From Erza I gained re-quip magic, and from Natsu, his Fire dragon slayer magic, but because I hadn't any knowledge of how to use either of these magics, I could only do basic stuff, though I was slowly learning from the both of them. It actually made quite a cool combo magic, that I had named "Forge" magic, as I had learned, through a practice session by lighting one of the swords I had re-quipped on fire. To mine, and my companions surprise, the swords metal heated up as it would, for that of a forge, but did not melt. From then on, we called it forge magic (or at least I did...). "So, we gonna try out that rolling hills area on the edge of town like we said last night?" "Yes," Erza snapped "but not after I drop by town to restock a bit. You two shall clean up this place a bit, and while your at it Morgan, do you think you could finish rebuilding the northern wall? It's the only thing left part of the house left to finish. And Natsu, you just do some simple sweeping, and cleaning as I said, or I WONT GET THOSE SIGNAL FLARES THAT TASTE LIKE A VOLCANO. So just behave." She gave a happy grin and walked out. "Have fun boys!" As soon as she was out of sight I quickly finished the 8 foot stone wall that surrounded our, now newly fixed and refurbished, two story house. It was my old house from before "it" happened. I immediately turned to Natsu who had just finished sweeping, gave a wicked grin, and said "You finished?" he shot a grin of his own my way and said "Just did.." As soon as I said those magic words we dashed over to the old school gymnasium that we'd converted into a training ground, for magic. And just like that we we're care free. I loved to learn how to use my magic. After all, it's not everyday you get bound to two Fairy Tail wizards. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Just as Erza was about to leave town, she remembered to check the notice board to see if anyone had found the guild hall of their friends.. After letting go of the handle of her overstuffed cart of supplies, she got a look at the board and sure enough somebody had found it, or better yet the guild had found THEM. It was a poster for a Fairy tail hosted magic competition, and the address said it was exactly where the chose to look, just this morning.. "Huh. It looks like Natsu was right. He'll be very excited. And I'm sure our friend Morgan will love the chance to test his magical abilities, Fairy Tail Style." When she got back to the house, and delivered the news, the house was the loudest it had been in a long time. For the three companions, it was a dream come true. Not only could they not wait to see their friends, again, but Morgan couldn't wait to see who he'd meet along the way.
