A Fairy Tale
- Open! Gate of the Ram! Aries!
The Golden Key in Layla hands shined, and Aries jump over the great bandit. She attacked him with several wool shots, and attacked with a kick on the stomach
- I'm sorry...
- With what? - Layla screamed
- Blue Water!
The brush exploded in blue ink, that transformed into water. The bandits fall into the the train's cold floor. Layla attacked them with the whip
- We are a good team – said Layla
Leonard released a wave of Red Fire, and one of them bandits fall to the floor in flames. Leonard smiled
- Pretty Little Girl... - said a voice
- Its behind me, no? - asked Layla
Leonard make “yes” with the head
Layla throwed herself to the floor. Several needles flies above her, and are easily destroyed by another Red Fire wave
- Yellow Thunder
Leonard attacked the last bandit with a shining lightning, and, after that, Layla smiled to him
- Sometimes – said Leroy, climbing in the table – I feel the peoples who hates me
- First – said Layla – You're drunk, Leroy. Second, we're not intimates to you talk about your personal life with me
Layla lefted the chair and walk in the Main Street of Magnolia. The peoples love so much the Fantasia Parade, and the music are in the command of the streets. Leroy and his friends are drunk and dancing in the street. In fact, Leroy is a good mage, but becomes drunk so easily...
- Layla! - Dallas screamed, approaching – I don't see you during the Parade
- I choosed to not participate... And you?
- I have been a Fairy a long time ago – said Dallas, with an sad expression – Now, I'm only the helper
Dallas is, out of Layla's Team, one of the few peoples that her make contact frequently, and he telled her the whereabouts about his guild lefting
“I remember the day. August 2, X887. My last mission its to stop a Dark Mage that is attacking a town in the east. The battle was hard, and I defeated him, but he attacked me with an Anti-Link. My Magic are wasted in the same day... Its hard and painful in the beginning, but, with the time, I learned how to live without the Magic Power”
- Dallas – Layla said – Let's eat something?
The Blossom Restaurant are opened and full of people. Dallas requested the most expensive options, and the waiter come with them in high speed. They're occupied with the great quantity of peoples
- So... Layla – said Dallas – I heared from Cecyl that the third mission of the newest Fairy Tail Duo was a success
- Yes – Layla said
- What the mission?
- Our mission its to protect a fortune of Jewels from a proeminent bandits group. Are twenty-seven bandits, but only four are Mages. And them have only ridiculous magics. Its so easy
- Your words are the words of a people with a powerful magic, but you depends of the Spirits, and summon more than one at the same time is tiring
- Yes, but I have my whip
- The whip is magical?
- Yes... Its a gift for my first sucessful mission in my times as one of the Twelve Apprentices
- What's the mission?
- Our are sended to a great town, in the Order's proximites. The town had been destroyed by an mage, that all named the “Dark Hole”
- He use Gravity Magic?
- Yes. The fight it's hard, with bleed out so much on this day... The only one that a remember resisting Dark Hole powers are Helena, the Child of Libra
- Libra is not a Spirit with Gravity Magic powers?
- Most specifically, Gravity Change – said Layla – Libra is attacking Dark Hole, and, in the same time, protecting us from his magic effects, to make our free for attack he. I have a whip, but its a normal whip
- The Battle, in truly, occurred for an entire day. From the sunrise of a Saturday, to the sunrise of the following Sunday
- We are only twelve childs. We have any great powers to have an balanced battle. He was not using all his power against us. As much as we were pests bothering him, Dark Hole not wished to kill us
- After all, you were children. That would be a horrible murder
- Well, after all, one can say that when the sun rised to the sky, he was in perfect condition, and we almost dead. At that point, just me, Helen, Di and Thor were just standing. The others had been unconscious had time
- And as you won?
- Helena used the rest of her magic to open the Gate of the Libra, to Libra support us. I still had magic, but is so little that I prefered to use the Whip. Di and Thor were worse. Di struggled and still had a little magic in the body, but Thor ... He was no magic to open the Gate of the Lion, and moreover had his right arm and leg broken and an injured eye, but continued fighting. It made me admire him deeply. In the end, we united our powers and Thor summoned Leo. The Lion attacked Dark Hole with a powerful light, that destroyed a black hole that him was creating. And, in the end, our professor give to us four weapons. My weapon is this magical whip
- Ms. Layla Novallion? - Asked a girl
She is a short girl, with a wavy red hair, with a letter in her hand
- You're friend of Mr. Leonard, no?
- Delivery it to him
The girl putted the letter on the table, and exit the Restaurant. Layla, feeling suspicious, opened the letter
As you know, March 3 is coming. And as you also know very well, is this time that the Sky Feas takes place, and the things here in Ka Elm are agitated. Many believers of the Cult are being threatened by the Church of Zentopia, because are we going against their creed
This year, to celebrate the great growth of the Cult of Brÿn, we will make a small family reunion here in Ka Elm, in this weekend. All will come, and I thought about calling you to do a little participation, though I know that you will not come
Your beloved brother, Nikolas Mikael
Layla and Dallas finished the reading, surpresed

- My family is a problematic mage family – Leonard said with a sad expression – After my parents death, the situation became more hard. And when Sandria died, I runaway from home...
- Who is Sandria?
- My dead sister. My family is big, and big families are full of envy. My fathers are the political leaders of Ka Elm, a city in the extreme north. I'm the middle son. Before me, have the oldest son, Nikolas and my sister, Angelica. After me, borned Raphael and Sandria. My dad are killed during a rebellion of the people, and my mother commited suicide after this. Nikolas started to control the town. But Sandria became ill, and his constantly obssession with the Cult of Brÿn, the religion of the town, prevented him to become worried about the ill. Six months passed, and she died. After this, I runned away from Ka Elm, and finded Fairy Tail, here, in Magnolia
- Leonard... Read the letter
Leonard opened the letter, readed that with speed, and, after this, teared the letter into pieces of paper, and suspired

- We are approaching – said Leonard
- How you know this? – asked Layla
- The air. He city is under an endless and cold rain. The air is much thin and cold than it was when we lefted Magnolia
- Okay – said Misty – When we arrive at the city, what we do? Go to Leonard's old house?
- Yes – said Dallas
- No – said Leonard – It's a house. It's a castle

- This Magic Circle is active until my grandparents born. Existed here for so long that any people in the City give importance, but the tourists will be impressioned. Any people known how the Circle still working, but, when your enter in its territory, you will fall into the eternal rain
- The town's people don't known any form of Dispelling Magic to destroy the Eternal Rain? - Dallas
- All the magica attacks on the Circle don't work properly. It engulfs the city and some more territory. Is a colossal Magic Circle, and the only known magic to dispel it is Moon Drip
- But the Storm prevents the Moon to appear, and without the moonlight, is impossible to cast the Moon Drip – Layla said
- Yes – Leonard said, with sadness – The Rain can't be stopped by magical means. And the town's people like the Rain. The Eternal Rain brings fame to the town
