Though it had been a bright day the clouds had started pouring rain unlike Lizzie had ever seen before and she quickly stopped heading for the general store to look over goods. On holiday at Amberville this month, she would go back home in 30 days after this short vacation ended. She realized the rain may not let up for the night and ran to the local inn. In the front room of the inn was a great dining hall. There were already a few groups of people sitting around and Lizzie looked around for anyone she might have seen around this smokey town earlier in the day.

Lina and her companion are sitting at a round table enjoying their gargantuan lunch. The plates are piling up fast as meat bones and bread crumbs scatter everywhere. People around them are watching them in awe and fear as they eat enough for 10 people. Lina yells out "Hey chef! Another round of lunch specials for 10 people! Put it on my companions tab here!" Her companion begins to complain and Lina stomps on his foot. "You better not complain! I finished my meal first! That means I win and you pay!" At that point a pink haired girl burst into the inn - soaking wet from the rain outside. Lina noticed her and thought to herself 'she looks like she's in a hurry. Is she looking for someone?' Lina continues to look in her direction.

Lizzie looked around again, unsure of where to go. Then she noticed a slender cute girl staring right at her and figured it wasn't a mean look and so she moved closer to sit down with the two, a cute girl and a strong swordsman by the looksof it. They must have had a large group here that just left because it seemed their food could easily feed at least twenty people. She waked over and spoke to a waitress once she got close, ordering a meal, vegetable soup sounded good for dinner tonight, with a glass on water just because water was free and she didn't want to spend too much on vacation. As she sat down with the couple she suddenly wondered if she was intruding on a date? But she'd take that as it came. "Hello, nice to meet you. I am Lizzie. I'm from Anvil if you've heard of it. I'm just here on vacation, I came here just because I've heard of the lovely view and figured why not? May I ask what a large party of yours is here for? You are dressed quite differently than the villagers I've seen."

Lina looks at Lizze and thinks to herself 'She seems like a nice girl. I don't think she's looking for trouble.' "I'm Lina and this is Gourry. We're just a travelling sorceress and swordsman." Lina then gives Gourry a bit of a confused look and then looks back at Lizzie. "Large party? It's just the two of us at this table....Oh you mean all the dirty dishes! We eat this much all the time. Need to replenish my energy you know?" Lina takes a big gulp of her ale. "I'm wearing standard sorceress garb with a few extra improvements attached to it. When someone wants to talk about getting a job done that requires magic, they come to me. Gourry here is my protector. He's a master swordsman even though he has jellyfish for brains". Gourry looked like he was going to say something but got stuck in thought. Lina piped up again. "We are here on information that there is a sorcerer in the area who wants to resurrect Ruby Eye Shabranigdo into this world. We must stop him at all costs. You wouldn't know anything about this would you?"

"...What?" Lizzie felt embarrassed that she was so obviously a more sheltered person than most. She smiled at Gourry and felt bad for him after Lina's comment, but he seemed to be used to this type of joking around, she couldn't be serious... She smiled as Lina mentioned her sorcery, that sounded like a very complicated profession. "II'm not sure I know of this sorcerer as I haven't met many" But easer to be as hospitable as she could she added, "Since you seem to be unfamiliar with this location I wouldn't mind if you used my map." She smiled as a sudden thought struck her, "I know where the shops in toen are if you need anything, and Iif you take my map, may I escort you through town for a bit? I'd love to see a real sorcerer in action!" Lizzie smiled at Lina as she seemed to be the leader, hoping that a she could have a good learning experience on this vacation.

"A map would be nice. I have some things I want to sell at the shops. I'll show you how a master businesswoman gets the best price." Lina said with a grin in her face. "Gourry and I would be more than happy to have you escort us around the town. You wont find a better sorcerer than me! The beautiful genius Lina Inverse!!" Lina said that a bit too loud as she heard a few people in the in inn pipe up. "L-L-Lina Inverse the Bandit Killer!?" One person said. "The Dragon Spooker!? The natural enemy of all who live!!!??? Nooo! What have I done to deserve such a curse!?" Ten people from the inn immediately ran out the door in fear. Lina's eyes twitched with anger and embarrassment "I guess I'm famous even way out in these parts...if for all the wrong reasons." Lina looked at Lizzie with a hurried expression. "Hahhaha don't worry about them. They are greatly exaggerating. Now lets get a move on. If you want to know why people call me that I'll tell you later. Lets just get out of here and get some shopping done."

Lizzie dropped her jaw and changed that into a smile as soon as she noticed. She could not believe Lina's carefree spirit and admired it very much. She wanted very much to have the fun/beautiful/genuis spirit she saw in Lina, but she held back being as composed as she could. She was surprised that others in the pub knew of her and smiled to be teamed with such a fame.Lizzie was very impressed and only smiled at Lina, very gleeful indeed. Her food finally came and she sat down and started making quick work of her meal with ears wide open. She had not felt so excited in SO long.

Lina gave Lizzie a surprised look. "You're not scared of what they said!? You're the first person I've met that hasn't ran away because of my dreadful nicknames." Lina sighed with a content look on her face. "Well since we are still here and you're eating, I'll tell you how I got these names". Lina asked the waitress for a glass of water. "The bandit killer name is pretty obvious. I've been hunting bandits for their treasure since I was 14 years old and word just spread. There isn't a bandit out there that doesn't know my name." Lina's water arrived and she had a sip. "The dragon spooker name started to go around after I defeated an ancient dragon with one shot....and as for The Natural Enemy of All Who Live, well, lets just say that I caused some minor collateral damage". Gourry spoke up and said "by minor damage you mean you destroyed and entire city. Good thing that city was evacuated before hand". Lina gave Gourry a mean glare. "I had no choice! If I didn't do that then the world be in ruins right now!" Lina looked back at Lizzie with excitement."So Lizzie, are you ready to see a real sorcerer in action?"

Suprised by her ability to ignore others' feared voices, Lizzie smiled at Lina. She comtinued to eat the rest of her soup and drink her water. She was suprised at Lina's career started while she was so young and admired her skills more, if that's even possible. Lizzie was surprised by the life of adventure someone so young had and felt belittled but determined not to show it. She was glad that this destroyed cuity had been evacuated, though that dosen't mean many precious bits of history hadn't been destroyed as well. She forced herstlf to stay calm though she was very excited, "I've just got to wash my hands after dinner" and she made her way casually to the bathroom before letting her rapid brreathing go and slowly end. She washed her hands as she worked of hiding her huge smile and composed erself as best she could before coming back out, glad to see that she had not been left with the rather huge bill. She paid her own tab and made her way back to the table, "Do you need to change or grab anything before we leave?"

"We have everything we need. Gourry has his sword and I have my materials I want to sell." Lina paused for a moment. "Actually, before we go, I want to use some magic on one of my items to make it worth more". Lina takes off her cape and reveals several leather holding bags. She opens two of the bags. One bag contains a hand full of flawed rubies. The other bag contains a flawless ruby, a small bottle of pure water, a card with a magic circle drawn on it and a piece of paper with a magic circle printed on it. She lays down the paper on the table so the NORTH symbol is facing north. Lina then places the flawless ruby in the center of the circle and the card on top of it. She places her hands over top of it and recites the words "Source of all power, flames that glow red!". A Small flash of red light is observed, the card disappeared and a magic circle is imprinted on the inside of the ruby. Lina then takes a flawed ruby into her left hand, places her hand over the now magic ruby and recites the words "You who cross between heaven and earth, pass beyond all, evermore." A flash of red light is observed in her hand. Lina opens her hand and the flawed ruby has turned into dust. She places the dust over the magic ruby and repeats this step with all the other flawed rubies. After a few minutes, a pile of ruby dust is covering the magic ruby. Lina opens up the small bottle of water and pours it over the ruby dust. She then recites the words "Infinite earth, who supports all life. Gently flowing water. Come to my hand and give this form." A bright flash of red light is seen in the pile of ruby dust and it takes the shape of a large cloudy ruby. "Now we wait for 5 minutes". After 5 minutes the cloudy ruby has turned clear. "All right! it worked! I have just made a ruby of protection. It will protect the holder from a number of minor damaging spells." Lina places the large ruby in one of her leather bags and puts on her cape. "Okay! We're all set!"

Watching the sorcery, Lizzie was quite impressed not just at the procidure but also at how she could make the item worth more, which helped other people as well as Lina. It was amazing the amount of materials that Lina could easily carry with her, but Lizzie was impressed to learn that Lina needed flawed rupies to alter instead of making them out of air, as she had previously suspected. She was impressed by Lina's concentration and felt slihtly worrid as the patrons of this inn looked up snd stared at Lina. Lizzie was glad not to be the only one who had seen this for the first time. She felt more confident that their quest wouldn't fail with all their skills combined. She walked to the door as the party was ready to go to the town shops as the rain ad died down so the sprinkling had stopped though Lizzie was annoyed that now the dirt streets would be muddy.

Lina noticed that Lizzie had an annoyed look on her face when looking outside. "A little mud never hurt anyone. We're going to have to walk it unless we can find a carriage for transportation". Lina took a step outside, her feet sinking a couple inches into the mud. "Ugh. It's a bit deeper than I expected." Said Lina as she shifts her feet around in the mud. Lina turns back and stares at Lizzie. "You wouldn't happen to know if any transportation comes by here do you? I would rather not walk in this but if we have to then so be it."

Lizzie smiled at Lina as she noted her scowl at the mud. "Hah, I can be just as agile in the mud as I can be on street! It's all about putting your feel in a stable position just right." She felt proud about her balance thanks for her training. Being as polite as she could to show appreciation, Lizzie held the door open for her new friends. "I think every hour there is a carriage that drives around town to attract paying passengers." Lizzie looked at the inn's clock and noted that it was fourty five after. "It should come by in about fifteen minutes and we can wave it over for a ride."

Lina gave Lizzie a smile. "Sounds good! Lets wait for a bit in the inn". Lina walked back into the inn carefully as to not trip in the mud and walks up to Gourry. "So Gourry...when are you going to give me your sword of light?" Gourry looked confused. "I'm not giving it to you. It's been in my family for generations". Lina had a sly look on her face. "You said you would. You just don't remember". Gourry piped up again. "I said no such thing. I would have remembered if I did even if that was the only thing I could remember." Lina was looking irritated. "Fine then. I'll give you 200 silver pieces for it". Gourry sighed. "That's only enough for a regular sword". Lina just shrugged her shoulders and gave up trying to get it from him again. Gourry had a confused look on his face. "Oh hey Lina. This new girl. What was her name again?" Lina face palmed. "Come on Gourry we just met her and you already forgot? Her name is Lizzie". Lina gives Gourry a little smack on the back of the head. Lina looks at Lizze. "So Lizzie, while we are waiting for the carriage to come, why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself? What's your story?"

Lizzie took a step back so she could shut the door but remained close-by as she observed Lina trying to persuade Gourry's sword. Lizzie smiled as the attention was shifted back to her. "Well, I was born in a good town and had a pretty good childhood and quickly took to training. I devoted my life to a gym do I could learn to be proficient in self defense. So I am mainly trained in evasion and dodging and not so much in "hurting" others myself. I took classes as long as I remember and am proud to have come as far as I have." Lizzie smiled as wide as she could but then shifted her attention to tightning her wraps over her wrists. "I hope we are able to find a lead on this sorceress.." Lizzie was cut off as she heard the carriage traveling outside and quickly moved outside to wave down the carriage. She smiled at the gruff, web driver who halted gthe horse and waved at Lina and Gourry to signal they should take off.
