Snowflake

Beyond The Sun & Stars


Above her was a stretch of sky, and though the pale blue colour was inviting in its own right, leering into it echoed nothing but forlorn thoughts. The sky; a hue so gentle between the clouds and baby-blue, the female watched each bird upon wing. It was one of those spring days with a kiss of coldness that somehow heightened the warm rays of the sun. Her steps would all but falter as she paused to admire the flowers, to sense their aromas, to be in the moment with their transient beauty. Beyond all, it was a day of gifts, all there simply for noticing for letting the steady nature-given happiness in.

”Pretty.”

Her words were directed to no one in particular, as she plucked a piece of cherry blossom from the branch, while the flowers bloomed to their fullest. In all that expanse of green, they have the courage to be anything else, to sand out with a beauty that draws her close.

”And if that feeling is a cage, let me dwell within it for it feels the same as the wind and the open sky; a belonging that reaches inside to cradle the heart.”

She watched them bloom, the white bells, pure in any dark night, shining at the rising of the sun all the while the light is given. They are an art unrivalled by the works of man, the definition of perfect born of emotion rather than the convolution of subjective thought. While a young female laid bare beneath the cherry blossom tree, she thought about these things. Twirling the flower between her fingers, she observed it carefully and absently brushed aside a wisp of hair that had come loose before she tucked the flower behind her ear.

Perhaps if she had a mirror she would have been interested to see if the new addition complimented her appearance and she wondered how her lover would have responded if he were to see her now. She sighed, a weak whiteness flying towards the sky as she pondered how to deal with the day when she was still so hung up with how far she’s been thrown off her primary objective.

Panic is what has been going on in her mind and Alice had not really enjoyed the festival for a while, there were a lot of reasons and one of the main reasons was that her mind wouldn't want to shut off and it was very annoying, throwing panic situation after one and the other at her. It was almost as if she was a total different being than her mind at this point but thank god that wasn't possible... right? Again..

The knight decidied that she would have to just give up and because of that went to the festival again, together with her new companion again Ceres. For the second time Jupiter had asked her to take Ceres along to make their bond stronger and to be actually able to understand her new friend again, this time making sure not to lose Ceres in the crowd. Alice had decided that she would use the flower festival to figure out what kind of floewrs she wanted to use on her wedding. She surely had already a lot of ideas in her mind but well as long as they weren't bought yet, well ordered in that case, she could change it. She doubt she would but it was a more pleasant idea to do so than to actually worry about anything else at this point.

As she walked a bit aimlessly around with Ceres, she found a white haired lady that looked rather familiar, but it had been months ago since they last met, "Snow?" she called out to the person, she wasn't sure actually, her hair looked shorter but on one hand, she had learned from Alisa that Snowflake was the Blue Pegasus master but as Snow had not told her herself, Alice tried to remind herself to not ask or start about it.

Snowflake

Beyond The Sun & Stars


The assassin had her eyes on the sky again, and she fears it’s now an impulsive habit of hers to commit to the clouds when she had nothing on her mind. From a distance, a sound akin to that of birds and dancing winds momentarily drew her attention away from the heat, enough for Snowflake to consider angling her head the other way to see the approaching figure of a…woman?

Her journeys were very rarely mundane as she was, at best, quite gifted in assuming a stroll whenever the times were the most interesting. Its as if there had been a compass implanted into her head that always directed the woman to a fascinating venture in wait, where greater adversaries were seemingly wriggling in their impatience, allies bound to be part of the scheme, and she was surely more than willing to involve herself when an opportunity such as that came to present itself.

In the event that Pegasus mage encounters a soul with even the slightest memories of her, her reaction is almost always an awkward mix of confusion and awe, but mostly the latter; and it was only very recently that she’d decided to don a relaxed disposition when someone familiar stumbled upon her. This should have been how it played out as soon as the coral haired woman called out to her from a short distance.  

”Long time no see, Alice.”

At a passing glance, one might think her eyes were blue or gray, perhaps even green, depending on the colour of her clothing but her gaze would soon land on the other female’s abdomen, which appeared significantly different from the last time she’d seen her. ”I see you’ve become a mother yourself,” a small smile grew on her lips, proud of her acquaintance for pulling through the most difficult times. Being a mother wasn’t easy—or so she heard, and she couldn’t help but envy the courage and bravery of mothers on this planet. She could never imagine of herself being one, not that she planned to any soon. ”Congratulations, you ought to let them meet me for once.”  

Her tone was calm and collected as usual, though sharing a few of her smiles every now and then, more than how she used to be amongst other humans. Perhaps it was due to the fact that she’s encountered quite a handful number of people in her life, that she’s learnt to communicate with those around her better.

”How have you been?”

How many did Alice actually know and how often did she see them was always a question anew. Yet Alice couldn't help but always be surprised as well when she saw them. In this case her friend Snowflake, wouldn't it be very logical that she was here as well with the flower festival, she wan't sure if Snow loved flowers or nature things that much but who could refuse the pretty cherry blossoms here in Orchidia. Funny to think that way as it was Alice who had arrived her simply because her house was here and not per se for the party of the festival.

The red haired knight couldn't help but smile when her friend greeted her and noticed the change, she had given birth to the twins about two months ago now, time went by so quickly and she couldn't help but grin, "Jupp, two months ago now." Which was also earlier than she had expected, but that was apparently very normal with twins and thank god she had friends around her when it came to the labour, a shame that Kon wasn't there but things happened and things changed, thank god everyone was in Orchidia now and she was just stretching her legs as she had done so often. "Oh that would be lovely." she said happily as her friend wouldn't mind meeting the little ones. At the moment, she was almost sure that they were asleep, "Right now they are asleep but you should come by at some point." Or later today, they were obviously not always asleep as she tried to get them to sleep mostly through the night for her own night rest.

She tilted her head a little to the left, something was different with Snow but she wasn't entirely sure what it was, Alice couldn't put her finger on it but she shook her head slightly when she was asked a question, "Pretty well, busy of course but that happens with two babes. And well hard training to get back in shape." She grinned though and it had worked as Snow had seen it as well, "How about you?" They had not seen each other for about 6 months, a lot of things could have happened.

Snowflake

Beyond The Sun & Stars


”Two months…” she trailed off, wondering how time has passed so quickly in just a blink of an eye, and during that that she felt like nothing productive was done apart from a couple of trainings. It wasn’t a habit until a few months ago, and her idle days have grown into something more rigorous and strict, bidding her own laws and crafting straw dummies by hand. Snowflake was compelled to fight shadows in the dark not because of an ultimate goal that she’d instigated into her life. She simply obliged to the yearnings in the pits of her soul that pushed her, almost literally in that sense of the word, an uncontrollable driving force that spoke her in whispers as she dreams.

”Oh, I would definitely love to,” said the female, accepting the offer to visit the Knight’s children. Though she never had a preference for children since she found them rather irritating, somehow, she was enthusiastic to see Alice’s little ones—perhaps she was just biased. ”I’ve never done babysitting before, but I could offer my amateur skills to you whenever you’re busy.” Of course, that was meant as a joke, whether or not it was taken seriously, but even if it was, she wouldn’t have minded to join in on the activity.

The assassin had her eyes on the empyreans once again, and beyond her was the sky, stretching on for eons without seeing the end to it. She’d see rays of neon colours radiating through the entire sky, painting it almost as if it was a piece of art. A long sigh left her lips, not sure where to begin telling her story upon the other female’s questioning. ”Decent, if I have to begin. I altered my appearance slightly. Hope I don’t look too different,” she tugged the strands of her translucent silver hair gently, twirling it by the tip of her finger. Despite her changing features, it appeared that those around her always seem to unveil her without much effort, nor her telling.

"Care to join me on a walk?”

She’d leap onto her feet, carefully dusting away the sand particles off her outfit, and speaking of which, perhaps she could’ve worn an attire akin to the flower festival, but that could be saved for another day. ”What’d you think of this festival?”

Snow seemed to be a bit surprised that it was two months ago and to be fair, Alice could say the same. She could very well remember the night of labour, the pain not so much but the pain of not having Kon by her side or near her was well a big one, the reason why she had left to Crocus as soon as she could and now it was two months later. How fast time seemed to go and at some points how slow, especially when she had a lack of sleep. But she was glad to hear that her friend wouldn't mind visiting her children when they were awake or when she was able to and Alice would see if it would be possible later. At this point only Alisa had spend some time with them and it seemed the children really liked her and Lumen. It would be nice if her friends could just come over and the children would be fine.

"Oh that's very kind Snow, thank you. I am just lucky that I have companions that are able to change into human beings, Hecate has been a wonderful help, we are looking for a nanny though, like fulltime as Kon and I both work or well I don't work yet but you get what I mean." She wouldn't plan to stay indoors all the time, no matter how much she wanted to be with her children all the time and how guilty she felt for leaving on a short stroll to find the right flowers and so on, as that was her so called plan of the day, she knew that at some point she would go to work again. And she explained how she had been, just to return the question to her friend who she had not seen in months.

She looked a bit worried as Snow sighed and didn't seem all to happy to explain the question but that was an assumption, she shook her head as her friend mentioned that she hoped she didn't look too different, "I thought something was different but I still see it is you." She had of course met Snow a couple of times now so it might be just instinct, she did nodd when Snow asked her for a walk, "Sure." she smiled. So they started their walk while Alice considered the answer, "To be fair I came here because of my home, safety for the kids with everything around Crocus." She looked around some more, because it sure looked like a happy place to be, "Apart from that it's too crowded for my liking, I do have to admit that it is beautiful and nice to be here. There are so many things to do that I didn't even try yet."

Snowflake

Beyond The Sun & Stars


As the two women began walking through the park where the festival mainly eventuated, she’d notice how the grass floor became so thick with petals that it reminds her of the beautiful fishes she’d seen in the lake during one of the dates with her lover. The colours overlap with a heady vibrancy that raised her hand on instinct as she collected falling petals in her palm, as if the heavens had rained down flowers upon them. She lets her fingers touch the perfumed ‘scales’, holding them up briefly to take in their aroma before letting them tumble from her hand back to the garden path. Every shade of rose petal is there, so large and scalloped that they have collected morning dew. Intermingled are the shocking oranges, purples and fuchsias of the asters, their petals long and thin.

”I see, that’s wonderful,” replied the female with an understanding nod. Though she had no hint on who her husband, Snowflake assumed that he must have also been a busy man, considering that they were both wizards of Fiore. Having children wasn’t easy after all, especially when you have duties to attend, it would have been very difficult to provide the utmost attention to the little ones, which was why Snowflake had never thought of starting a family to begin with. Perhaps it was just herself who found children as a nuisance and distraction to her goals and ambitions, but who knows, she might change her ideals as time passed by.

The snowy beauty continued to fiddle with her hair, simply due to the fact that she yearned for her longer hair that flowed down her back like a waterfall more than she ever did. On a side note, she was glad that Alice was able to spot her easily even with a change in her appearance, but that also could have been her aloof demeanour giving away.

”Orchidia is your home?”

Snowflake had heard how there had been an advent of war and the struggles between a few other guilds, but she had no detailed information about any of them, nor was she interested as long as Blue Pegasus was kept away from the troubles. After going idle for a short period, the woman had lost touch with all the information that she would use to obtain. Perhaps if Alisa was aware of the mess, she could possibly provide her a thorough explanation of what occurred. ”…Did something happen in Crocus?” she questioned. People were bound to share the whispers of any incident that took place, but Snowflake wasn’t one to trust the rumours unless the information was given from someone she could trust.

”I agree, I don’t like crowds either.”

The flower festival had made nearly all the citizens in Fiore to travel down Orchidia, which wasn’t a surprise, though she must admit that her experience would have been better if there weren’t too many tourists. ”Well, is there anything you’d like to try now then?” Unlike Alice, there wasn’t anything specific on her mind and though she wasn’t one to dwell on things she hasn’t experienced, she would have loved to participate in activities that she wasn’t familiar with.

She wasn't exactly sure where to look now, the flowers were so beautiful that she actually simply wished to be married here, the manor had their cherry blossoms as well, why use new freshly cut flowers when you could use the decoration that the world and nature was giving you. But well not everything was ready and she would have to send the invitation again and well a lot of things were going on and she had to find Lacie too. She wasn't entirely sure how up for that she was, but at least have her locked under guard and watch, she was sure that would at least keep her out of her happy business for a while before making that decision.

One day there would be a job waiting for her and she wouldn't be sure if she was able to take the kids away with her no matter where they were going, they needed stability and in a few years they would need school. She didn't see a future where she wanted them to become knights or anything, she wanted to have them do whatever they would want to but at this point; that future was too far gone anyway.

She turned her golden eyes back towards Snowflake and nodded, "We have a house just outside the city perimiters. So basically still Orchidia but we do not bother anyone that way." nor did they bother or find them and that's why she was here too, apart from taking care of the last wedding things, Lacie wouldn't find it here. She looked away from Snow and sighed deeply, "Just the incident with the emperor, I wasn't there either but I heard about it, got the letter of his speech. I hurried back as soon as I could to find Konstantin as I didn't hear a single word from him." She bit her lip softly, thank god taht was behind them, "But apart from that I have my own problems with my crazy sister who plans to as she says it kill me. Better to keep the kids save in that case." she didn't want to bother too many people about her sister, it didn't happen too often anymore that people made a mistake though recently a barkeep had said it, which had been a long time ago before.

She was getting better with crowds that was a thing for sure. Alice looked around now that they were discussing what they could do, "Hmm, there is nothing in particular," she said softly until she noticed a wine tasting, well she always liked wine, had not drank much alcohol lately so.. although that one night in the bar, "We could try that, just sip, talk and have fun?" She pointed at the sign.

Beyond The Sun & Stars


With a responsive nod, Snowflake began, ”Orchidia is a nice place to settle in,” a soft sound to couple nicely with her soft appearance. If she were to find a place for herself and her lover, it would have to be Hargeon; hometown to their guild. Despite not being a huge lover of water, she still enjoyed being around the sea and the occasional visits to the beaches, especially when it provides such a magnificent sight during the dusk and dawn. The hint of salty waters in the air and the sight of seagulls weaving and dipping into the ocean was also something she could never grow sick of.

”Oh, the emperor’s speech,” spoke the frosty maiden as she began to travel down her memory lane, to where she’d listened to the speech for the first time. It was no doubt that the entire country received the infamous words from the emperor and even while she was idle, she would hear the rumoured gossip everywhere she travelled. Things were complicated back then, and her own guild had many troubles regarding to Grimoire Heart, considering how the two guilds went to war several months ago. A part of herself wishes to forget the pain of the death of their previous guild master and the destruction of their guild, but it was also one of the reasons that motivated her to strive forward.

There was disorder within Grimoire Heart—or so she’d heard, and shortly after, the faction disbanded. Snowflake wasn’t sure if she was supposed to be elated or disappointed when she received the information, albeit, seeing how Blue Pegasus quickly regained the ground after its fall, she figured that it would be unnecessary to chase the ones who caused havoc.

Returning back to the conversation held at the moment, the snowy beauty raised an eyebrow. ”Siblings, eh?” she folded her arms across her bosom as she stared beyond her. According to the knight’s explanation, that was quite the crazy situation. Unlike Alice, Snowflake never had siblings, but she’s never heard of a brother nor a sister attempting to kill each other. ”Having that kind of sister must be tough.” Occasional fights were indeed possible, but delivering threats to the other was completely out of hand. Although the details were unknown, the silver haired woman was curious of what might have led to this fight, but she left her doubts unspoken. Being her own acquaintance, Snowflake was worried about the well-being of Alice, but she was aware that she would be able to handle it well on her own.

As the two strutted among the streets, she’d catch Alice glancing around the area and followed her gaze to which she settled at, ”Wine tasting.” Without a hint of hesitation, she nodded in approval. ”Wonderful. Let’s give it a try.”

Alice smiled about the idea, yes Orchidia was nice. She liked being here, the many plants gave her a feeling of calmth and protection and much more. It was a nice place to b e indeed, it was the first place that she could call home and it probably more had to do with her family than anyone else. It was something she wouldn't have considered a possibility two years ago or three now, when she first got the amnesia and she wondered still what started it, it couldn't be the problem from when she was eight, that was just something else but than the question remained; what had it been?

Alice nodded when Snow mentioned the emperor speech, "I was not there, so I don't know what to think about it." She frowned a little and thought it might be better not to talk about it. Talking with different people and different opinions yet made it that she didn't form her own opinion yet. She still didn't agree with the matter but if it worked this way than she shouldn't complain too much but that didn't meant she would ever agree on the method, ever. Killing people that had nothing to do with the family issue of the kingdom, was not how she would agree to such matters. But it was too late for that and her opinion was a voice of perhaps many, but still a voice that would not be heard by the emperor himself.

But she told Snow for the first time without considering much more thoughts, about Lacie. With no name, as she did many times, she tried to avoid talking about her sister, but sometimes it happened, and in the situation with her wedding, her children and her sister, it was sometimes tough not to get crazy herself to try and find where Lacie was. "We apparently had a crazy mother who raised my sister in the same believes after she kicked me out." Which was the polite version of it, she had an attempt murder on her mother too, which had gone wrong and her mother died by using a wrong ancient ritual and here she was, mother of two and getting married within days.

She looked around to find something she and Snow could do and bumped into the wine tasting, she was glad to find out that Snow liked the idea to and headed towards a table, which was a high table with bar stools and she climbed upon one. It didn't take long after they sat down for a waiter to come around and she simply stated that she wanted to do the wine tasting that was on the board at the front, so they would. "With the disbanding of Grimoire Heart, I wonder if it is possible to fully enjoy this festival or if another guild is waiting or hidden people to destroy people's happiness." She muttered honest to Snowflake, she could at least say what she thought right?

”Me neither.” During the incident, Snowflake was idle and lost contact with the rest of the world. Even then, words travel fast; anywhere and everywhere, which was how she came to discover such news. There were many things that she didn’t understand, but she was in no position to question her doubts. Besides, those times have been done and passed—it wouldn’t make a difference even if she had her own opinions about the event.

It seemed that Alice had many complications in her family and despite then, Alice always appeared positive in front of her and she couldn’t help but admire her courage. Perhaps it was a sensitive topic for her to bring it into discussion, and if Alice had felt uncomfortable, in no way the frosty maiden would have forced answers from her. Not once did the girls ever had a conversation like this; one that regarded their problems or them simply discussing the things that were on their mind. Alice and Snow had always been distant acquaintances, albeit, at this moment, she felt as if their relationship grew slightly further.

”I truly wonder as well,” she began. ”But, let’s not worry ourselves too much. When the time comes, I’m sure we’ll be able to solve them just fine,” the ice mage bore her friend a light smile, but she felt her breath catch a little in her throat, hesitance breathing through her mouth. The truth was that her statement didn’t exactly reflect on what she felt; she wasn’t sure if the peace within the country would last long, or if more severe wars and many foreboding troubles were to occur ahead. There was nothing she knew certain of, and only time would tell.

For now, Snowflake believed that her Holy Knight acquaintance and herself should just forget past their worries and enjoy the moment. Much to her appreciation, the place wasn’t crowded, which was probably due to the fact that it was still bright in the afternoon. The couple would proceed towards a vacant table and upon mentioning that they were here to do the wine testing, numerous glasses would be placed on their table in the next minute, while the waiter poured different bottles of wine into each separate glass. Some of them red, some white and some in gold champagne colour, the snowy female struggled to decide on which glass she should try first.

As she remembered how she felt when she got the speech, Tori directly opposite her in her own living room, she hoped to never feel such distress ever again, that note arrived earlier than any news from Konstantin at that point and soon after that she got into labour and that felt like a disaster all over again because he wasn't there and she was basically alone and she remember how much she cried, pushed and begged her companions to get ready to as soon as she could walk go to the capital to find her fiance.

It was too sad to think about the problems that may or may not appear at the festival, the thing would just be that she would be prepared. But Snow was right, they would be able to manage, they basically always did, "It can't be bad to finally enjoy some time of nothingness." she sort of made up the word, now the emperor was doing fine right? She had not seen him lately in any announcements but who knew how he planned his reign, surely wouldn't ask her or anyone else from the public.

As they sat down in the booth and Alice mentioned they came for the wine tasting, they started with pouring wine in multiple glasses and shortly explaining it, which she didn't catch a single word from but luckily there was a short list in a small booklet of what was just told, they would bring all sorts of small finger foods such as cheese, olives and so on for them to eat with the wine and continue talking. "How are you and Chelvaric doing?" She decided to ask and get the topic to something more positive.

Snowflake

Beyond The Sun & Stars


Once all the glasses were filled with wines of different colours and brands, came in a colourful brochure handed to the two girls by one of the staff members. Inside the booklet was a list of wines that were available, which she assumed was everything displayed in front of her, along with some appetisers for them to enjoy. The list of names weren’t ones that the white haired female was familiar with, but then, she had never been a big fan of wine either—she was the one to enjoy stronger types of alcohol.

Snowflake took the initiative to be the first one to do the wine-testing, as her icy blue hues shifted between the numerous glasses, while she pondered which glass she should select first. She settled with the glass in the middle, closest to herself, consisted of dark cherry red wine. The frosty woman swirled the wine in her glass, breathing in a fragrance that only years in an oak barrel can achieve. When the liquid settled, she brought it to her rosy lips and let the fluid sit in her mouth a while before swallowing. It was different from what she would normally drink in a pub—she finally understood why people would enjoy drinking to this marvelous liquid.

Sweet yet, bitter; the taste was like an elixir to life. ”Mmmm,” a soft sound escaped her lips unexpectantly, but it only meant that the drink was that good. She never thought that she would actually enjoy this, albeit, she’d always had a soft spot for a good champagne—perhaps one of the reasons why she was heartily enjoying the drinks. It almost didn’t feel like she was here to have wine-testing, but to enjoy a long chat with a friend with some drinks and snacks, as if they were what people these days would normally call “hanging out”. ”It’s good, you should try it,” suggested the female before taking another generous sip from the glass.

”Oh, we’re just fine,” she spoke, sinking back into her chair while she crossed her free arm over her chest. There were a few things on her mind; things that she didn’t know if she should discuss with other people or if she should just keep it to herself. ”Watching you prepare for your wedding, I was just wondering if it’s time for me to settle as well.” The thought almost seems scary to her; she didn’t want to feel like she was being chained down by a person and marriage was too serious for her to be considered at this point. Apart of her still wants to enjoy her pre-adult life as much as she can, but at the same time, she wonders if it was already time for her.

Chelvaric was most definitely someone she loved; someone she wanted to spend her life with, and she knew it was the same for her lover but knowing that, they shouldn’t be in a hurry to be promised to one another, right? ”What’d you think?”

The whole spectacle of the wine glasses was actually quite beautiful, how it went from a dark red to different fragments of red, pink and white to a sort of shimering gold. Which would probably be something like a champagne, it has been a while since she drank, and yet it had not been a while but that all seemed to be more like accidents than really things she had in mind. Spiked her punch? Bachelorette's it wasn't all that wonderful at all. But she didn't complain in the end there was fun and merry, something her dark omnious thoughts could use instead of her thinking about all the bad things that could happen, bit tragic, bit of a shame if you just got married, she should be really happy. And she was.. when she was with Kon.

Perhaps the idea that the festival was too darn perfect made it like that, she was afraid something would happen, as it seems it always would. She watched Snow picking the first glass, she didn't really have any idea where she wanted to start, she only knew she wanted to golden brew last. So she took the dark cherry red herself too but first kept her eyes on Snow, she didn't mind wine, actually she and Kon started their first meeting with drinking wine, that was white wine though. She smiled when Snow seemed to be rather content with this one, "Oh I will." she said letting out a short chuckle as she swirled the glass softly with the motion of her wrist and stared at the colour, dark red had its own elegance. She first asked Snow how she was doing with Chelvaric before taking a small sip and her golden hues looking at her friend.

She was surprised when Snow mentioned her question to herself. She wasn't sure if it was a rethorical question so she waited a little, she frowned but gave an easy smile when Snow asked for her opinion, "The thing is, I never expected myself to get married and especially not at this age or have children. It's just something that happened. I don't regret it at all, but the way you think about it, I don't know of course how you feel but if you are wondering if it's time, I would say no. You don't have to wonder, you would just know. So.." She wondered how to phrase it, "If Chelvaric, would ask you to marry him, say right here, right now, would you be happy?"

Snowflake

Beyond The Sun & Stars


Snowflake took another sip of wine and swirled her glass once again. Already the worries of her day were beginning to fade—just watching its gentle vortex was hypnotizing enough, and at the same time, she was lost in her own thoughts. Indeed she was still young to settle in; she was only in her pre-adult years after all, albeit, people say that you’d know when you’re ready whether you’re young or old. Seeing herself being indecisive, perhaps she just wasn’t ready to think too far ahead of their relationship. She has already found her lifelong partner—what was there to be hesitant about?, she wondered.

Truth be told, the young woman feared how her life might change in any way if the couple were to get married. It wasn’t an issue of making life-long decisions, rather, it was something more akin of her habit to over-think things if her lifestyle would become any different. Those were the thoughts that filled her head and kept her worried at all times, but honestly, there was nothing for her to be truly concerned about. Chelvaric was one who preferred if things were the way it was, and even after they were wed, he would still remain the same loving boyfriend he had always been. Perhaps she was the only one who was stressing herself out over negative thoughts.

Another sip of the wine and before she knew it, her glass was already empty. She’d frown mildly before idly grabbing another glass and held it within her fingers. She knew it was a wine testing event, but she decided to refrain from drinking too much, especially when there were so many glasses of wine to taste—she didn’t want to return home tipsy after all. The question that Alice brought into discussion easily caught her attention as she turned to look at the Knight. Without knowing what to answer, she returned her gaze to her own glass. Snowflake took a moment contemplating on her reply and she’d briefly walk down the memory lane, recalling the times she had with Chelvaric.

Certainly, they had their ups and downs, like every other couple does, but what she experienced from this relationship was joy and happiness, and she received more from him than what she could possibly give. She’d learnt so much from him and it was because of Chelvaric that she became who she is now, and this only brings to the conclusion of providing the one final answer.

”Yes.”

Cerulean optics crossed over the gaze of hazel as she confirmed her answer. ”I would.” Her eyes were fixated on hers, without a hint of hesitation or regret and it seemed as if all her questions had been answered and her doubts were being washed away—just like her sorrows with wine. It wasn’t an ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I think’, which was how she would have normally replied to such a question, but a simple and complete ‘yes’. A sigh left her lips; out of relief that she finally figured out what she wanted, and no one could possibly describe how she felt at that moment. Perhaps a small chat with a friend was what she needed all along.

She never was one for counseling and that's also not really what she was doing, what she was doing asking a simple question. A question she at that time had not really time to think about. At that point, she had been freaking out after her injury and the fact that she had not seen her boyfriend at that time for a complete month and she had to tell him that she was pregnant with his child, children which she also did not know at that time. It was almost a year ago that he asked her to marry him and she would still say yes every minute again. The thing was so strange, turning to twenty-two and being married with children, a bit longer than a year ago, she would have never suspected that she would now be married. She had just met Konstantin in March and well after that it was a bit of a rollercoaster, perhaps it was nice to not have that going on for now. She surely was the adventure type but it was good to sit still and enjoy life from day to day.

So that experience she used to ask Snowflake the question about what if it was here and now. She looked in Snowflake her eyes and grinned with her answer, it was so firm, so certain for as certain as it could be and she smiled, "Well there is your answer, only your heart can answer such questions really well." And she was truly happy for both her friends, she would not know what else to say so took a sip of her wine and let Snow think about it some more.

Beyond The Sun & Stars


Who would have known that a simple question provided all the answers that she had been searching for? Perhaps it was coincidence that Alice had met her earlier, and to enjoy a lovely chat inside a wine store. The wine-tasting event was a bonus to their encounter and maybe it could just be their luck that they happen to stumble upon a shop that stated that they were providing free drinks for customers to taste. ”Thank you,”—was all she could say to Alice. If it wasn’t for the Knight, Snowflake would still have been a lost soul as she was before. It was a good choice to have sought for advice from a person who was almost married, after all.

There were still quite a few glasses left to taste but she knew that she would begin to get tipsy with a couple more drinks, and she didn’t want that. Some glasses of wine were strong, some—not so much, nevertheless, she still enjoyed tasting a variety of them. The young woman had never been a fan of wine, but now, perhaps she could be considered one. Wine would be the drink she would seek for if she were to end her day with a luxurious and relaxing drink, instead of a strong one to wash her stress away.

The final glass she had chosen was champagne. For someone who used to be an avid drinker of this particular wine, she could immediately tell what it was by seeing how golden and crystal clear the liquid was. The beauty wasted no time chugging it down her throat, relishing the flavour as she closed her eyes briefly and released a long breath from her lips. ”I’d rather not drink too much, unfortunately. Don’t want to get too tipsy,” she placed her empty glass to the side of the table, among the rest of the empty glasses.

The waiter came by their table, collecting the glasses that were finished. ”The wines tasted lovely. I’ll make sure to drop by soon again,” spoke the female, nodding in gratitude towards the waiter. Her stay had been welcomed and was provided well and thoroughly by the store’s customer service—the only thing she could return was the feedback of how well they performed, not to mention, of how the wines tasted as well. The man only bowed graciously with a smile on his face before he walked away to polish the glasses away. Snowflake turned towards her friend seated beside her. ”Shall we go now?” Of course, they would only have to leave when Alice was ready.

She was lost in thoughts for a few seconds every time again, swirling the wine in the glass with a light movement of her wrist. The thing was that she remembered how much happened the last few times she drank. That drunk moment in the bar with Lucifer, that was a bit embarrassing. So after a small second sip, she put the glass already back down and moved onto the next one, not finishing them. That was the idea of wine tasting right. She watched what Snow was doing, making sure even though worrying about her own well being, if she was not too much absend in her mind. She gave a warm smile to her friend as she mentioned a thank you, "My pleasure." It wasn't much she did and she was glad to see that Snow was a little less troubled.

She continued with taking two sips, to make sure she really did get a taste from the wine before going on to the next. She would wait before taking a next glass to see if she could take enough of the wine before going on, promising herself that if she liked the champagne, she may finish that little glass. Alice let out a little sigh when Snow said she did not want to be tipsy, "I share that thought, last experience with drinking was not very succesfull." She said with a pained look, again not that bad but considering she got drunk in front of her fiance's best man. Embarrassing with a capital E.

She put the last olive in her mouth and finished her own champagne shortly after and thanked the waiter that came shortly after that for the service and the great flavours. "Yes, care for a walk?" Alice said and stood up and dusted off the invisible dust, her companins had left and she was actually glad to just have that moment of peace with her friend. She felt the stress leave her body, no longer thinking every second that something bad could happen.

Black Market

”Oh, I completely understand,” the woman chuckled slightly. Whenever Snowflake was out drinking, she’d have to use every bit of her self-control not to drink more than her body could take, since she cared about her reputation and image enough to not get herself drunk.

When Alice invited her for a walk, Snowflake replied without a hint of hesitation, ”I would love to”, followed by a quick nod. Having a quick chat together with luxurious glasses of wine was a pleasant surprise for the white haired girl, and it seemed that it was also something that she desperately needed.

The streets were busy with a lively tempo—even when the events were almost over—as people flocked to places they were supposed to be, finding things they were supposed to do. The ice mage observed her surroundings, just like she always did, watching people continue with their daily lives and vendors beginning to open their stores in the town’s shopping district, while two young women briskly walked past the crowd that roamed about the streets of Orchidia.

”Are you travelling anywhere soon? Or have you decided to remain here longer?” she’d begin to strike up a conversation, in an attempt to fill the time with some idle small talk, whilst staring out into the distance, her eyes dazed, dreamy and lost in her own thoughts. Beyond her was the sky, stretching on for eons without seeing the end to it. She wondered how long it has been since she last enjoyed the beautiful sight of nature; the trees, the empyreans and the white puffs of cushions drifting by, when she had been so busy with solving her own issues. Oh, how she had missed this.

Despite the number of times she’d visited Orchidia, the roads remained foreign to her, as they always will, considering how horrible her sense of direction was. The young woman was distracted with the small talks in between, and Snowflake had unexpectedly let her guard down—a mistake that she should have never done. As she took a step forward, she felt something tingling through her skin. It was as if she had entered an invisible door, her surroundings felt entirely different from where she was before. The woman raised her gaze, and she froze. One moment they were in the lively streets of Orchidia and the next moment they found themselves in a completely unknown location.

”What…is this place?”

Her eyes darted over the vicinity instinctively, taking in everything that enters her sight. The ambience of the area was gloomy and there was something eerie about the place; something that she couldn’t quite put a finger on. ”I have a bad feeling about this.”

Alice couldn't help but grin at the white haired mage, glat that Snow understood. It wasn't much the idea that she thought she could take more, she probably drank too quickly. Didn't eat enough compared to it, although it was still a mystery what happened at the swineherd but she tried to forget that as good as she could. While they finished drinking or well having the wine tasting, Alice invited Snow to have a walk with her around the festival. As it was new Alice wondered what it meant, she had come here for the reason to be home and now she wanted to enjoy the festival too. She was sure the children were fine as were her companions and she could just relax a little and enjoy her time away with a friend.

She watched things left and right, looking at the stalls now properly and no longer considering too many thoughts, she did not have to worry at this point about her wedding and so on. If she would not relax at any point at all, she wouldn't be surprised if she would turn grey by the end of the month. She turned her golden eyes to Snow as she asked if she was travelling, "Ah no, Konstantin has a house here or well we have a house here. So I thought it was the best to keep the children here for a while instead of travelling too much." The manson was big enough, actually too big but well everyone had their own little private moment if they wanted to. She never really thought about it like that, but she loved to belong somewhere. And apart from that, she started to love Orchidia even more.

As she was looking at Snow while they were talking, she had not noticed the strange looks of the place they were walking too, a mirage of magic, no one was really there and yet they were. But they entered and she felt the tingling of magic. She stopped walking as soon as she went through the makeshift door and stared around, moving her hand up so there was a flame dancing in her hand, it was her new automatic response instead of being able to requip her weapon. Although, she always carried Vash's white around. "I have no idea." she said back, albeit softly. Perhaps no one noticed they were here. She turned around but the invisible door was still invisible here and she moved her hand forward to where she expected the door to be but nothing happened. A one way entrance?

She turned back to Snow, "Me too. It reminds me of that sudden skeleton that showed up. And I don't mean in a closet, it was a walking skeleton." She had nothing against a lich, because well she heard from Kon but this one had attacked the pub or was planning to and.. well she didn't know what to completely think about that. The thing was that she had no idea what to do now, "Better go forward and be prepared. Something is either awaiting us or they aren't aware we are here." It reminded her now too about the adventure she had had with Evangeline.

She felt a short pain as she wondered where Eva was.

Snowflake

Beyond The Sun & Stars



Black Market

The two somehow ended up in an abandoned alleyway and as she looked behind her, she would see nothing but a wall of brick and brown sheets of old newspapers and posters sprawled on the ground. Though she had witnessed Alice’s attempt to see if the brick wall was nothing but an illusion, the snowy beauty wanted to confirm it for herself as she hoisted up her hand and rested her palm against the wall, her fingers brushing over the rough texture of the structure.

Nothing.

They were directed into a foreign territory without themselves even knowing and according to what they have at hand, there wasn’t any exit that could possibly lead them out—not at the moment.

Within the short period of time, Snowflake had come up with a few theories; one that included a person teleporting himself into the location and perhaps forgot to close the portal that he had opened. It was merely an assumption, albeit one that made sense to her out of all the other reasons she conjured in her restless mind. ”Well, there’s no exit…” she placed her hands on hips, breathing out a sigh of exasperation. Apart from the dull ambience, it doesn’t seem that anyone had noticed them; not that she expected anyone to, considering how they were dumped in a filthy and contaminated alley where people discarded their garbage, presumably.

The white haired woman raised her eyebrows at her acquaintance upon her comment on skeletons. At first, she thought that Alice meant it as a joke to lighten their spirits, until she mentioned ’walking skeleton’. She simply blinked in awe. ”I thought they didn’t exist,” she whispered under her breath, without the intention of being heard but her habit of speaking her mind out loud must have done the opposite.

As she peeked out of the corridor, the townsfolk continued about on their daily lives and two strangers would be muddled through the crowd, unknowing of what to pursue first or where they should head to in this unfamiliar location. ”From the look of it, no one seems to notice that we’re here,” spoke the ice mage, her eyes still fastened ahead of the path ahead. She gathered everything in her sight; anything that might give her a lead to identify what the place was, and though that might be more difficult and enduring than she had imagined, it seemed that the frosty maiden had already gotten a clue from her observations after weaving through the crowds for a good amount of time—perhaps. The people around her always appeared to be dress in dull clothing, if not, a black cloak that conceals almost their entire bodies.

Either they felt that the weather wasn’t warm enough in this spring season, or that they didn’t want to be discovered in this region.

She couldn't help but hold on to the fireball. The thing was that she did not dare to let go as she reminded herself about the strange things that happened when she had not been prepared on time. She missed a proper weapon, a melee weapon to hit someone simply with, not her gun. Her free hand was already placed on the holster but it was no need. There was no one, but she was very aware that they did not belong here and that she expected someone to either freak out because of their obvious hair colors, it wasn't every day that you saw a fire red haired one and a snow white one. She frowned as she wondered what to do about it, she wasn't claustrophobic but the idea of no exit was easily scaring her a bit. Including the fact that she had no idea where they were.

"It would never be easy for us, would it?" She remembers their meeting in the bathhouse or saving the nobleman in Baska. She shook her head lightly and stopped the fireball while keeping her hand on the holster of the Vash's white. She wanted to see if they could get out of this alley if she saw anything she recognized, she felt a slight moment of panic, no one knew where she was because she did not know where she was. Alice shook her head lightly, would she be home on time? It was a question only time would tell. She could not help but tell Snow about the time she bumped into a walking skeleton. "I wished they didn't, it means there is a necromancer in town." Perhaps they were just somewhere hidden, a secret society around Orchidia. She had not been far around her own house to know all the information.

Or well that was her only guess. She would have never guessed that the whispering was so, that she wouldn't have to respond because it was not meant for her ears. But she stood so close to Snow, it was not easy to be missed. She had tried to forget that little piece of anxiousness that she had felt when they first talked, she had mentioned a bit of the exact accident she meant now. She assumed Snow whispered so no one else would hear them, which was a great example.

She remained behind Snow as not to be seen while she looked around the corridor. She waited and nodded when Snow gave her the information, "Well we can't get out here, so we should get on with it. I am only slightly worried about our appearance." even if she had not seen the people in the corridor, her flame red hair was her issue. She was known as the Red Whirlwind only already because of her hair colour. She did not want to be found or spotted at a point where she did not know who would find her.
