A very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very important question. Probably. [Alisa] [Sugma Ball] Empty Sat Aug 07, 2021 6:40 pm

Zane wandered the hall floor, searching and searching for the person he had been ordered to talk to. Faces and faces passed by him, but none seemed to be the one. He had saw her earlier, but had to continue walking a while for the sake of being with his guildmates. Now that he was free from them thanks to a flimsy excuse, Zane couldn't find the woman. He'd been searching for quite a while now. That incident in the men's bathroom didn't exactly help either. "Must you really speak with this woman, Zane? I know she requested it of you, but I can't help but worry anytime you interact with the females of your species..." Beelzebub's worries were mostly warranted. Most of Zane's intelligence (which was already pretty low in the first place) went completely out of the window when a lady was involved. But this was different. He had asked the woman a question at the pageant the other day and she had refused to respond right then and there, instead telling him to ask her himself. That was precisely what he was going to do.

And then he spotted her, standing alone on the balcony. It was quite a cliche scene, actually. At every single fancy ball in some fairy tale or novel the protagonists always stood alone on a small balcony. "I mean, who actually just stays alone on the balcony? Why hasn't anyone come yet?" Zane asked Beelzebub, complaining about the overused trope. "...But you're about to come. The balcony will no longer be empty once you arrive." Huh. That made a lot of sense, actually. Stepping out into the cool air, Zane let out a sigh of satisfaction. The temperature was much better out here. Looking to his side, he prepared to confront Alisa Vollan. It had been a good number of years since the two of them spoke to each other. One of them had certainly gotten much, much more famous than the other...

"It's been a while, Alisa." Zane said to her, placing his hand on the balcony. "Not that you'd recognize me now, anyways. I was much different when we met in Baska all those years ago." Zane was an elf back then, and an extremely shy one at that. He really had broken out of his shell. "My interactions with you suggest that perhaps that shell was there for a reason." Regardless of if Alisa remembered him much from back then or not, she'd certainly remember the question he posed to her at the pageant just the other day. Or maybe not. If she had forgotten that already her memory was certainly the worst among the guildmasters of Fiore. "So, since you told me to ask you myself... what do you think of world-famous mage Christian Zane?"

Now, when Alisa said that at the pageant, she didn't really think whether Zane might or might not follow up on it. She didn't think much of it after the fact, it had been mostly the natural thing to say, at least for a woman like her. She wouldn't really object to meeting him, again, quite the opposite. She wouldn't have dared him so unless she felt otherwise. But even then, when she heard that familiar voice calling out to her, pulling her from her reflections as she took in the night air of Stella, Alisa's eyes flared open for a brief moment, lowering her glass as she turned on one heel, defenitely amused at how he'd bitten her bait even harder than she imagined she would:

"Ufufu~... After all this time, you come to see me and that's the first thing you ask~?", chuckling ever so softly, Alisa rose a hand over her mouth as she arched an eyebrow, her wine red gaze scanning the young man up and down, noting how much he'd changed, "Good to see you too, Zane~"

And there it was. Well, she wouldn't have invited him to come ask him if she hadn't even considered him answering her dare... And yet, judging from the way her shapely chest rose and fell with a deep sigh, she clearly didn't have an answer just lying in wait for him:

"Well, I think...", dramatic pause. For a moment Alisa merely stood there, sipping her glass of champagne, idly holding his gaze as she savoured the taste. Maybe she had a penchant for flair, or perhaps she just found a certain amusement in how he anxiously heard at the bottom of his seat, "Christian Zane is a far better man than he gives himself credit for."

Perhaps self deprecation was just one of his favourite pasttimes and not one he'd give up for the world. But there was something that changed between then now. She remembered a mage from Fairy Tail who just went wherever the winds took him, and now here he was, faithfully following a wanted criminal into a party:

"And honestly... I don't really feel like you need to be following anybody at this point. Whether that's your guildmaster or just me really~... That's your charm point if you ask me."

Indeed unlike his two companions, she also knew he lacked any zieable bounties of his own. Whatever reasons he may have, from his own morals to simply not wanting to fight off eager hunters at every turn, that fact just as easily remained. He defenitely had ambiguous morals but, as out of character as it may seem for a light mage... Alisa liked that. All too often the people who believe themselves to be paragons can easily commit unspeakable atrocities, just as much as the villains. Self righteousness is a horrible trait to have.

Alisa seemed to have some recollection of Zane judging on the way she greeted him back. Zane was a tad surprised. Most people didn't have a perfect memory like he did. "Your memory is selectively flawless, not perfect." Beelzebub commented, instantly picking up on the small internal compliment Zane gave himself. "What do you mean?" Zane asked, curious about just what it was that Zane's memory was selective about. "You already know."

Zane leaned against the balcony, crossing his arms. Beelzebub worried about his clumsy host falling off just a little. Zane had a number of things he was guessing he might hear from Alisa. Beelzebub also had a ton of predictions, most of them negative. Neither of them could've guessed what Alisa actually ended up saying in the end. It was probably the most shocked Zane had been in, well, his entire career as a mage! "...Huh?" He asked directly after her first answer. Usually Zane spoke in long, complex and needlessly showy sentences. But not this time. This was about the most speechless he had ever been in years. "Am I hearing her right? YOU of all people not giving yourself credit? It's the exact opposite!" Zane nodded lightly to himself, exhibiting his bad habit of letting his inner conversations with Beelzebub show on his face.

Alisa's further words gave Zane a slightly better idea of just what she meant. She must have pieced together the fact that he was in Eternal Nightmare, a fact not many had yet learnt. He admittedly kept it hidden from most. But what could've caused her to pick up on it? Was she some sort of deductive genius? The female Sherlock Holmes? An omnipoten- "You locked arms with two members of the same guild, Zane. Has your 'perfect memory' already let that detail slip?" Oh. Zane supposed that was a good point. He noted passing by Alisa on his way into the ball as well. It was only natural she had the chance to look at him too. "I guess you must have saw me with them, huh?" Zane asked, his tone a bit more serious than his usual goofy demeanor. Eternal Nightmare... in some respects, Zane had tried to forget he was even in that guild. Their tattoo rested on his sole, a place he basically never saw. He'd made no such declarations about his allegiance to anyone outside of the guild. He barely spoke to those in the guild itself.

"I'm not following any of them." Zane shifted his eyes from Alisa to the cityscape that lay past the balcony. "Guilds are just guilds. They're not who we are. Do you know why I joined Eternal Nightmare?" Zane asked, chuckling to himself as he recalled those events years ago. "I wanted to look cool. And I still do want to look cool. Guilds, groups, allegiances... all that stuff is just style. No different than clothing to me, really." Zane's thoughts on the matter were definitely much different than they were back in Fairy Tail. Back then he seemed much more intent on being a part of a community.

The changing factor in his personality was never Zagan or the creation of Eternal Nightmare, a guild that he named himself. He already knew what led him to care so little about things like honor or loyalty. It was the demon in his head. "I am as good as a man as I give myself credit for, Alisa. It doesn't matter if I'm an Eternal Nightmare member today or a Blue Pegasus member tomorrow." Zane turned his gaze back to Alisa as he stopped leaning on the balcony so goddamn much. The change really calmed Beelzebub's nerves. "The Christian Zane you see before you is just as free as the one you met before. Even more so, really. I know what I want to do at any given moment. And what I want right now is..." Zane paused for a moment, dramatically pointing at Alisa.

"...That drink! Where in the world did you get it?! I've been searching around for a good while now, but all I've come across is bad shrimp..."
