Revelations


Back in Magnolia: earlier that evening

The air was filled with static as a group of four people walked down the street towards the guild Fairy Tail, they had just returned from their mission and had gone to visit Hoshi at her home as they usually would but what they saw had them all worried. Just before reaching the barrier which kept the house invisible, there was what appeared to be the site of a fight, Laxus had caught the scent of blood as well but it appeared to be weeks old and he knew it was Hoshi's as he'd smelt it before, not to mention the house was almost bare besides the basic furniture and the single note on the kitchen table.

Laxus held the note in one hand and a lacrima in the other, Freed, Bickslow and Evergreen looked at one another then at Laxus who walked ahead of them.

They entered the guild and the member turned to look at them, it was obvious that Laxus was angry and everyone else kept their distance. Well some did anyway; Erza approached them before a voice stopped them in their tracks.

"Laxus, Freed, Bickslow, Evergreen, Loke, Lucy, Wendy, Carla, Happy, Pantherlily, Gajeel, Levy, Mirajane, Elfman, Erza, Gray, Juvia, Cana, Gildarts and Logan. Please join me in my office" Master Makarov spoke from the railing above them before he re-entered his office.

The ones whose names were called looked at one another before they stood up from their seats and made their way up the stairs and into the office, luckily for them the office was big enough for them all to fit. They watched as Makarov proceeded to pull out a few envelopes from a drawer in his desk and set them on to the table in order of which they were sent.

"Master?" Erza spoke up as she gestured to the letters on the desk.

"What are these?"

"And why were we all called into your office?" Gildarts asked, standing towards the back beside a tall blond man with brown eyes, a frown on his features as he glanced at the letters.

"Does it have something to do with the fact that Hoshi isn't here?" Laxus asked as he set the lacrima down onto the desk with the note.

Makarov studied them all before sighing softly.

"It is indeed because of Hoshi, she sent these letters from where she is currently" he picked up the note and read it with a frown before looking at the lacrima then Laxus.

"Where did you get these?"

"Hoshi's house, we went to visit her like we usually do but she wasn't there..." Evergreen spoke as she glanced up at Laxus and the rest of her team.

"Also..."

"Also? What is it child?" Makarov asked

"There were the remains of what appeared to be a battle not far from the house... This lacrima is like a security device which Hoshi installed, we haven't looked at it yet as we figured you would have liked to see it as well" Laxus spoke as he gestured to the lacrima.

"I figured she forgot about it before she left..."

"Battle?" Wendy asked, holding Carla close.

"What does the note read Master?" Gray asked, curious.

"It reads as

Dear friends,

I'm afraid I won't be back for a while, I apologise for not waiting until everyone returned from their missions but something Natsu said encouraged me to get an early start so I can get in some training while I'm away. For more information, please go and speak to Master Makarov at Fairy Tail.
