Picture:
Image

Appearance: Maria is pale with rosy pink cheeks and bright golden honey eyes. Her hair is long and dark sorta like dark chocolate. She's very small both in height and in size. She's not un-healthily skinny but she is very thin and very easy to pick up and toss around. Her voice is often hidden making you think shes a mute but when she does speak. It's soft and often neutral hidden from any emotion. When her voice does have emotion it sounds like a bell or thunder depending on the emotion it holds.

Abilities: Maria's ability lies in her voice depending on the emotion or words she uses different effects can arise. If she's angry her voice is like thunder wild and angry spoiling any food nearby and twisting everything or even causing pain if its directed to someone. If she happy her voice is sweet and bright like a morning bell un-spoiling food or causing it to taste great fixing things that are broken and even changing dull colors into bright ones. If she utters a curse to someone often it will cause them pain or maybe even set them on fire. If she utters a blessing she releases them temporarily from pain but the effect last a short wile. Of course because her voice can change things when she sings things alter wildly same as screaming. Maria abilities are still a WIP because she doesn't yet understand its full power.

Weaknesses: Maria is not physically strong, and her ability can rebound if she aims something at herself or simply lets it run wild.

Personality: Maria is a hard person to read. She's often quiet and shy showing little to no emotional in response to things. Getting a frown is a million times easier then getting her to smile let alone laugh. Maria is a little bit of a negative person. Towards others she sees only the good in them in herself she see's only the bad and the negative. Lately she's been trying to trust more but finds it difficult because she's scared that her ability will harm someone. Despite her negatives and she has a few positives. Maria is quite odd and very imaginative. She expresses herself through writing and mostly painting showing off the side of her that's full of hope for the future and wild creativity. Too summarize... Maria has never seen the world the same way other people do and can be mysterious at times... She's loyal and wishes only joy for others even if it means sacrificing her own joy and even life.

History: Maria was found on the side of the road and taken in by an orphanage in the small town she stayed in. She earned her name because the old lady who ran the orphanage swears she heard someone whisper that in her ear and she decided that had to be the child's name. As a baby she never made a sound and every time she even let out the slightest of whimpers things would suddenly change around her. Being the odd little baby she was no one wanted to her adopted but she remembers allot of the faces looking down at her. Growing up Maria was sent to all sorts of doctors and psychiatrists because she refused to speak. There was nothing wrong with her. She just made no noise often talking with nods of her head or by expressing herself through strange colorful art.

Maria never got adopted and grew up very lonely watching other orphans come and go. When no one watched she would sneak off into quiet places and sing to herself watching how in a way her songs could play art with the things around her. She adored watching dull colors turn bright but she also learned that she could cause great pain and bad not only to herself but to others. When she was 13 Maria was sent away to an all girls school where she was suppose to earn "special" help but instead the teachers learned that Maria could understand just fine and work just fine. She would just never make a sound or speak. Maria never had anything outstanding happen to her all she would ever do is work and sing when she was alone, if she wasn't doing that... She was painting and creating strange sorts of art that could capture the heart.

The most outstanding thing to ever happen to her was when she nearly got run over my a semi and felt herself get pushed out of the way. Ever sense that day Maria was certain there was something more that she wasn't seeing. To be honest she had always thought she saw something at the corner of her eye or would spot something out of place. Once and awhile she also had strange memories of a place far beyond her reach. Something hidden in plain sight. Despite looking for it once and awhile she's mostly been creating her strange pieces of art of what she imagines the world to be like. Often finding herself drawing strange little shadowy creatures with bright eyes looking up at little stars she would draw. But even more often then that... She wold draw little floating islands with ghosts sitting on them...

Maria Odess

Maria sat quietly at her school desk. The past few days had been warm and golden with the leaves changing colors and warm air, but still there was an air of coldness lurking about every shadow. Maria wasn't sure what this strange air of coldness around each dark corner was, perhaps only her imagination led her to think these things perhaps it was real. As these thoughts ran through Maria's head she did not notice the school bell ringing signalling the end of the day. It took her about 10 minutes to realize she was alone in the class before she got up and packed her things to go. While putting away her pencils Maria allowed herself to hum quietly as she did the air rippled around her and the lead of her pencil went from gray-ish to a vibrant shade of apple green. Now what was she going to write with???

Sighing Maria decided not to focus on trivial matters and packed everything up before spinning around on her heals and heading out the doors. The hallways of her school were quiet and empty with her classmates already off to start there weekend adventures. Maria never planned things for the weekend, she had no family to visit or friends to hang out with so there was nothing to plan for. While her mind focused on the negative thoughts of being alone during her weekend she walked down the hallway her shoes making noise that echoed off of the hallway walls. Making everything seem oddly earrie.

While Maria continued her way down to her dorm room she realized that she felt like something was watching her. She turned quickly too look down an empty hallway and sighed turning around and continuing on her way. While she rounded the corner she suddenly felt her left foot fall down. Maria froze in panic and looked down to see her foot swallowed up darkness cold darkness. But the darkness seemed odd it looked more like a shadow she could partially see through. Panic rose up in Maria but she supported herself and tried to tug her foot free. While she tugged though the shadow spread and her other foot fell in. Maria began to panic and tugged and ripped at her feet feeling her legs slowly getting swallowed up. Maria began to squirm and panic it felt like a snake slowly coiling around she closed her eyes tightly and when she opened them again her legs were free.

Maria looked around and ran down the hallway into her room and slammed the door behind her. "What the hell???" Despite her muttering her ability same into affect anyway and a book shed left on her desk earlier that morning burst into fire causing Maria to curse. "Stop!" The fire singed out like it had never been there but the burns were still noticeable on her book. Maria knew no one had an ability like her and that she was unique but she'd never really thought much about it. But whatever had happened in the hallway THAT she would think much about. Feeling shaken she moved over to the small bathroom in her dorm room and washed her face. When she looked up she noticed how dirty her mirror was and grabbed a cloth to clean it. She brought the cloth up to the mirror and started to clean it when her hand went through the mirror.

Maria panicked and tugged at her hand trying to free it but it felt like there was someone on the other side grabbing onto her hand and pulling her into it. Maria pulled back and struggled only to be pulled in further. "STOP IT!!!" The air around the mirror rippled but her ability had no effect and instead her arm was sucked in further. The silvery mirror wrapped around her arm and pulled her in up to shoulder. She opened her mouth the scream but was lifted off her feet and pulled in. On the other side Maria became unaware of everything it felt like she was being pulled through water. It was cold and she felt like she was a million times lighter. The only problem was she could not speak or open her eyes.

When what seemed like an eternity later Maria opened her eyes and looked up. She was outside somewhere now and the sky was bright and blue. She sat up very slowly only to come face to face with a pair of empty glowing white eyes. A scream caught in Maria's throat as she slowly shuffled backward. All around her were more glowing eyes she looked around the eyes and faintly saw the outline of human looking body's. But as human as the body's appeared they weren't they were dark like someone had wrapped there skin in shadows but there eyes were bright and void of all forms of emotion or expression. Maria wasn't sure what they were thinking but she noticed one of the creature was holding out it's hand.

Maria stared at the shadowy hand not sure if she should take it or not. She wasn't sure why she wasn't rolling around on the ground and screaming and freaking out in every-way imaginable. Maybe it was the fact that all this was so completely out of place and farfetched it made her feel completely at home. Or maybe it was because she was in shock and her mind wasn't sure how to process everything that was still happening. When she blinked back into reality she realized all of the shadowy creatures were holding out there hands to help her up.

When Maria finally stood up she looked around. She appeared to be in the heart of a small town, not a very elegant town but definitely a town. The buildings were small and shaggy with no color but looked to be made of gray wood the only color on any of the buildings was the biggest building. Maybe a mayors house Maria wasn't sure but it had a little red thatched roof and a red door to match. When Maria noticed the strange bright eyed ummm shadow people? Still staring at her she opened her mouth to speak. "So... Where am I?" There was no answer only silence before one of the shadows moved closer and stared down at her before opening what appeared to be a gash of a mouth to speak in a raspy hollow voice that caused Maria to feel sick. "Your in Shadow Town..."

Maria Odess

Maria was walking about Shadow town now. The tall shadowy people had gone back to work all except the rather tall one that was following her like a loyal dog. It was only when she got closer to the dark black and gray forest that it stopped following her. "Are you going to follow?" She inquired to the creature. There was a pause and the air seemed still and uncomfortable before the shadowy creature shook its head. "In darker places there is far worse then us." Maria raised an eye brow and turned to look into the dark trees. She took a step forward daringly and a swarm of crows flew out squawking making her jump back a little.

Maria blinked once the crows were gone and simply shrugged before taking another step then another until she was in the forest and the trees enveloped her in darkness. Maria looked up and through the gnarled branches and dark green leaves light pored into the darkness illuminating patches of water and patches of thick green grass. To most people the forest would seem a haunted dark place and it probably was. But to Maria there was something about it that drew her in. Not in a bad way... In a good way in the way that meant there was something here she needed to find. And so she set off.

As Maria wandered through the trees weaving and dodging branches and finding her way about she discovered she liked the place more and more. It was oddly warm and though certain parts of the forest looked mangled and twisted in a dark way that made Maria back up and turn around there were odd parts of the forest that seemed immune to the darkness. There in the pockets of light she would stand for a minute or two basking in golden sun light and looking at the pocket of purity around her. At one point Maria found a little tunnel and on the other side was had once probably been a garden. There was a small wooden bench and flowers of all sorts. One half of the garden looked corrupted and dark with strangled plants and dark shadows. But the other half was fighting back with lovely foliage and bright colors. But Maria was not sure which side was winning.

She roamed around some more until she was quite positive that she was totally lost. She had passed marches and strange trees but now everything looked the same. Not sure what to do she walked around in a circle 6 times before darting off in a random direction. After a few minutes of walking and still being pretty sure she was lost she saw a house up ahead. Thinking it was Shadow Town she moved closer until she came to a small clearing with a little shabby looking house. She moved closer to the house then froze. It felt dark and cold. She felt a chill run up and down her spine but moved closer anyway. Somewhere inside her Maria had the oddest feeling something in the house needed her attention...

Maria touched the wooden door slowly letting her hands feel the lines of age and cracks and smiled. Despite the darkness of the place there was something left pure. Some warm memory's the house had never forgotten and kept close to its heart. Maria lifted her hand from the wood then knocked twice. There was silence. She knocked again. Silence. Without hesitating she grabbed the handle turned it and opened the door as if it were her own home. Walking in Maria's nose was assaulted with all sorts of smells. Sulfur and all sorts of poisons but oddly enough Maria thought they smelt good. She looked around the house at all the bottles and pots and the house in general before her eyes noticed a lump on the floor.

Maria moved over and poked the lump with a stray twig that must have caught in her hair earlier. When it did not move she flipped it over revealing an... Elf? That was definitely an elf... The elf Maria could tell was sick. She wasn't sure with what but she could tell he was fighting it with every last ounce of energy. She blinked and smiled before picking up the elf with great difficulty I might add because of her small skinny build and dragged it over to a chair before sitting the elf down moving over to close to door before she too took a seat and stared at the elf.

While her bright golden eyes stared at the elf her hands kept busy tugging and brushing through her long chocolate brown hair with her fingers. After awhile of staring at the elf she began to sing a gentle song. As she sang softly the air rippled and various objects and things around the room began to change from dull to bright. Things that were broken repaired. And she noticed the sweat on the elf's head dissipate. The song was a lullaby. Simple and childish but with Maria's ability it became a song to fix things that were broken and change colors but mostly to bring hope and strength as if the person had already slept a thousand years of peaceful rest. And being a lullaby it was also something to dispel the darkness, and already the house was feeling warmer and less dark.

Natsu Williams

Still humming softly, Natsu washed the dishes until they were squeaky clean and put them on the counter. He wondered what he should do for tonight. Maybe he should just have gone with the second option and slept early so that he could have enough strength to do his work. He had worked hard lately after all. Drying his hands on a white towel nearby, Natsu jumped when he heard a shattering noise behind him.

"!"

Natsu let a surprised cry leave his lips as he turned around to only face a complete stranger. Using both his hands to muffle his startled shout, Nat tried to calm his racing heart down as he observed the stranger with wary eyes. The stranger was a young man, perhaps in his late teens or early twenties. He was slightly taller than Nat, his body was in perfect condition - lean and muscular though not overly so. His skin was pale as though he hadn't bathed under the sunlight for a long time. His hair was as dark as the night sky and straight, unlike his own wavy's golden locks. However, what drew Nat's attention was his eyes. They had two different colors - the left eye was red while the other one was silver. They were deep and mysterious like they had gone through a lot. His facial expression was neutral though surrounding him was a dark aura that made Natsu feel really vulnerable under his unwavering stare.

'What a hottie!' That tiny, annoying voice inside Nat's head giggled girlishly while he was 'checking out' his supposed opponent. 'No, he's not... Maybe he's a robber or something' He whispered softly, scolding the little perverted voice and imagined himself locking it behind a steel door. 'Oh, come on, dude... admit that you find him hot already!' That little voice still rang clearly inside his head and Nat tried to berate it 'No, I don't find him hot or anything!' The voice chuckled and teased him again 'Whatever man...'

Finally being able to shut that inner voice up, Natsu turned his full attention on the intruder, a small part of his mind secretly agreed with his inner voice as his gaze lingered just a few seconds longer than necessary on the young man's handsome face. He torn his eyes away from the mysterious man as he tried to find something to fight back, to defense himself. Unfortunately for Natsu, he had left his journal on the desk which was out of his reach this moment. Turning back into the sink, Nat gripped the nearest frying pan he could find and raised it in front of himself, trying to appear brave. The frying pan was doing a very poor job at assisting him. It was still dripping with water and yellow soap. Obviously, fate didn't want him to be intimidating... or maybe it was just because he was standing in front of such a young man.

However, Natsu wouldn't back down without a fight. He could feel his legs began to tremble slightly under the tension and his hands which were holding the pan were shaking slightly. Nat felt like his body could snap into two under this pressure. Gulping, the young journalist tried to keep his voice steady as well as he could... which, once again, he was failing terribly. "W-who are you?" Nat squeaked out weakly, the fear made it harder to breath and he felt as if someone was squeezing his heart tightly.

Opened his mouth again, Nat tried to speak louder "W-why are y-you here?" Looking around to find an escape, Nat noted in depression that his only exist was on the left side of this man and the other way to get out of this room was to jump down from the fifth floor. And on top of that, he was standing in a corner...Natsu was stuck. His mind began to race, imagine things after things what this dark man would do to him. Maybe he was trying to steal something. However, he would obviously find out that Natsu wasn't rich by any means. Would this man try to... to attack him? Or rape him like some violent crime movies? Would he kill him? He didn't really want to die. At least, not like this. He had even promised his Mom that he would call her later... he couldn't be killed like this.

Natsu had never tried to be anyone's enemy and he had always been a quiet boy even when he was younger so why? What did this man want from him? Looking at the shattering pieces of glass underneath the man's boots, another question came to Natsu's mind. How could this man get in here? His hands were empty and he didn't appear to bring any weapons, not even a knife or a gun. He couldn't obviously get inside Nat's apartment using the front door, Natsu would have heard something if that had really happened. So... how?

"H-How can you b-break into my a-a-apartment?" Natsu finally said, closing his eyes briefly, silently wondered what he had done today to offend God so much that he had given him this kind of luck.



Agarwaen Gaer

It was the lullaby and the shrieking noise that had woken Agarwaen up. He opened his eyes tiredly only to cover them in pain, his vision was blurry at best. Trying to shake off the dizziness, the elf silently wondered why he had heard the beautiful song and why his darker self was trying so hard to get free. However, thanks to the poisons he had drunk earlier, its attempts could be ignored so as long as he focused on his surrounding.

Agarwaen's hands automatically pushed his body up, the strange song was still ringing in his ears. This was new. Usually, if the demon wanted to torture him or something, it wouldn't choose such calming song and usually when he woke up was the time the nightmares ended. So, how was he still hearing the song?

He blinked, still in a daze as he saw a tiny figure sitting in front of him. She was young, he noted with subtle surprise. Not many young ones were still around here after 'that' had happened. Her warm eyes stared at him, unlike the usual blank stares he often received from the corrupted in town. She was singing, too so that meant he wasn't dreaming. his bright mind connected the spots almost immediately and his emerald eyes widened dramatically as he recognized who she really was.

Covering her mouth to prevent the girl from singing and drawing attention to them, Agarwaen whispered urgently "chosen one, please be quiet. You are drawing a lot of unwanted attention!" Walking to the front door that almost never locked since the day he was infected, the elf took out a heavy chain and carefully locked the door, peering his eyes out warily, watching if any wandering Underlings had come near his house. Thankfully, nothing seemed to be disturbed by the stun the Chosen one before him just pulled.

"Chosen one, where is your guardian? Why are you here alone? Please listen to me, you mustn't continue to use your magic. They can sense it!" Agarwaen spoke again, all exhaustion suddenly evaporated as he stared at the hope of this land - a truly uncorrupted human being - so tiny and looking so weak and at the same time, had such pure magic that she could drive the monster inside him away if only temporary. Maybe not all was lost after all. He just hoped she wouldn't be the only one to help them. If that was the case, she would have many, many patients to cure.

Maria blinked when the Elf opened his eyes she was about to speak when his hand clamped over her mouth. She mumbled into his hand then watched him dart over the the door. "So ummm... Hello to you too sleeping beauty?" She stood up awkwardly and watched him. "Chosen??? Guardian??? WHAT???" She stared at the elf confused. She could hear the urgency in his voice but she was not sure where it was coming from. She looked at the door calmly. "Well your making about as much sense as the person who invented the jack-in-the-box... I came here alone... I've always been alone...." She felt small and confused compared to the elf who seemed huge and well much more filled in on things.

She sat quietly before gently tracing over the wood of the table with her small gentle fingers. "if you could clarify a few things for me... Where am I? Who are you? What's with the shadowy things that are creepy but polite? And what are you sick with?" As she listed off her questions calmly she made note of them on her finger and stared into the emerald green eyes of the elf. "Sorry for the questions... But this is very VERY knew to me..." The tension in her voice rattled the air and shattered a vase. "oops." She frowned and gave the elf and apologetic smile. She wasn't confused about where her trust for the elf came from. It was coming from the need to trust him and the fact that she knew somehow that he needed her help.

"I'm not here to hurt you, in fact, it's the opposite" The strange young man said, his voice was smooth, sending chills down Natsu's spine and the young journalist lowered his pan slightly. "H-How can I k-know it f-for sure?" Nat whispered, unconsciously tightened his grip on the pan. "My name if Luka Stryker and I am your guardian. It's a rather long story but I'll explain everything on our way to Nevermore."

Nevermore? What did he mean by that? Nat didn't know any places that went by the name 'Nevermore' though strangely enough, the name did ring something in his head. It was familiar... Nat had heard the name from somewhere before. The young man, now could be identified as Luka, continued "I know this is all too sudden, but won't you please come with me? There are others who may already be waiting for us." Luka's mismatched eyes shone brightly and at that exact moment, Natsu knew that he could trust this man. He had seen those eyes before...on his friends' faces. It was the sincerity glint that had convinced him to drop his guard.

"By the way, you can put the pan down now." Luka said and Natsu blushed brightly as he realized he was still gripping the pan tightly. The other man quickly closed the space between them and the young journalist could feel his face become redder than a tomato. The other one smiled - a smile so beautiful that it had taken Nat's breath away. "U-Um... O-okay..." Nat stuttered shyly and put the pan into the sink again.

"B-but before w-we go... c-can I f-finish wash-washing those d-dishes? a-and call my Mom? I h-have promised her to c-call h-her, y-you know" Nat squeaked out weakly, trying to get some space between the two. Why was he so nervous? He knew that Luka was...hot but he didn't really need to blush and stammer like a teenager girl! Turning his head away to hide his red face, the young man whispered, feeling embarrassed "U-um... w-would you m-mind g-g-giving me s-some sp-space?"


Agarwaen Gaer

Agarwaen had freaked out for another fifteen seconds before he forced himself to calm down, calmed down just enough to hear the girl's confused questions. "if you could clarify a few things for me... Where am I? Who are you? What's with the shadowy things that are creepy but polite? And what are you sick with?"

"My apology, chosen one. I was under the impression that your guardian has already told you all about this..." Agarwaen said smoothly, barely paying attention to the broken vials. Those could be replaced easily. However, the chosen one's life was not. He had a mission to fill her with the missing details. "You are currently in Nevermore... the world that is... parallel to Earth in a way. You are from here, chosen one. I know this seems like an insane idea but... you do not belong to Earth. You are not an Earthling. You are... from here. You are from Nevermore."

Pausing slightly so that the girl could acknowledge and digest the information, Agarwaen continued softly "As for who I am... well, my name is Agarwaen Gaer but please call me Agarwaen. It's A-G-A-R-W-A-E-R, Agarwaen. I'm, as you can see, is an elf...And about the 'shadowy things' that you have seen, they are the corrupted. Just like I am." He finished the sentence softly, sadly turned away to look at much cleaner house "I'm not sick. At least, not in the normal sense. I'm a corrupted creature. I have evil thoughts and my heart was...is stained black. I am dangerous and I am trying to prevent my inner demon from getting out. That... that is why I'm in pain."

Lowering his gaze and stared at his hands intensively, Agarwaen continued "However, some others... they are not as lucky as I am. They don't have the means nor the will to fight the corrupt. They lost and became one of them. What you saw were probably lower corrupted creatures. They are called the Underlings by the humans... Of course, us elves don't call them by silly names like that. We call them... demons"

Looking up and staring straight into the girl's warm eyes, Agarwaen whispered "You, chosen one, are chosen to be our champions. You have the purest magic and you are destined to lead us out of this darkness. That... is your true fate, chosen one"

Maria stared at Agarwaen in silence until he was done. She blinked and shrugged. "That actually explains a few things... Like the messed up voice ability? THING." At her excess on the word thing a random fire started on one of the chairs. "Sorry about that... Don't have control over it..." She hummed quietly and the air ripped the fire went out and the chair looked better then knew. "There all better."

She shifted in her seat her golden eyes staring at the elf. "To be honest... I think your not a monster... You might have one inside of you and I can tell he wants control... But I also think your monster is scared. Scared of you being able to fight it..." She quietly sat before standing up. "Well this chat was lovely... But I should go..." She blinked looking away gently grabbing onto her long chocolate hair and tugging at it as worry filled her eyes and she sat back down.

"Chosen..." She let the word's tingle on her lips and the air around pulsed with magic of her voice and of her words. I don't think I am.." She sat back. "I mean really the only reason I'm here is because... MY MIRROR KIDNAPPED ME." She huffed frowning. "It grabbed on and pulled me through then I woke up with those... Under... End... Underlings staring at me like an animal in a zoo..." She stared at the table and began drawing little scenery's of floating islands in some powder left on the table. "Now your telling me I'm suppose to save stuff... The rest I somewhat get... But all I can do is make changes with my voice... I'm not powerful..." She looked uo at the elf. "But I've never seen the world the way most people do so despite my minds doubt I know in the pit of my soul your speaking the truth..."

#, as written by cha-kun
Dellon fell to his knees and clutched his stomach. Even after more than one thousand years he still could not handle ley gate travel. He retched up his lunch and wiped his mouth, "Ugh, where the hell am I?" He scanned his surroundings. Alright, trees, so he was somewhere in the forest. He closed his eyes, utilizing his other senses to give him more information. He could smell the musky scent of decaying vegetation, he could recognize the distinct calls of the birds in the trees. He felt the cool wind coming from the northwest. He drew his Chronamora and set off to find his chosen.

Another reason he hated ley gate travel was its unpredictability, it always got you where you needed to go, assuming it wasn't tampered with, but there was no telling if you were on time or not. he reached into his coat pocket and pulled out a timepiece, pure silver. He was in the right time period, so that was good. He had been living on Earth for the past thousand years when the Creator called the Guardians back to take on there ancient duty, and when his chosen was sent to Earth he was one of the few Guardians that decided to stay on Earth to physically protect his chosen. There were several times when his chosen, Maria Odess, would have died without his intervention. There were also many times when he wanted to reveal himself to her, but he could not. Not until his appointed day. He had actually been on his way to collect her when those idiots in Nevermore opened the portal prematurely. The mirror gate was long closed by the time he got there, forcing him to use a ley gate. He could handle mirror travel, but ley gates always made him vomit. He ran through the forest, holding his Chrona in its dagger form behind him. He could feel her getting closer, and he knew he was on the right track.

He eventually reached a small cottage, and he could sense Maria inside, "Finally." He saw a fire bloom inside and his anger heart skipped a beat, "Maria!" He saw an elf pop his head outside, and sensed the corruption inside him. He transformed the Chronamora into a bastard sword and held it in a two handed grip, charging into the house and knocking down the elf, holding the point at its throat, "What the hell is going on here!?" He immediately flared his aura, forming plate armor around his body. He then took in the scene around him, this was no ruined building, this was a well maintained home. The elf was corrupted, but was not repelled by the Chronamora, which must have meant that he was able to fight it, and Maria was clearly in one piece, and certainly no worse for wear, "Wait, what? What the hell is going on here?"

Maria Odess

Maria sighed and was about to speak when a strange boy burst into the room and tackled Argarwean. "WHAT THE HELL!" She jumped and tried to bite back her yell but it was already to late and the air boomed with magic knocking Maria backward and knocking the new-comer onto the floor and shattering anything it could, not to mention twisting the plants just outside making them wild and thorny as if they were ready to attack the new-comer. Maria stared up pathetically from the floor guilt rising up in her gut and twisting her emotions. She nearly wanted to wail out ever form of apology she knew.

She stared at the two people on the floor and fought back dear instead she closed her eyes and took deep breaths trying to calm down. If even the slightest bit of her distress and sadness mixed into her words it could cause who knows what. While she took deep breaths she began to mutter in the softest voice she could. "Sorry". Over and over. Her legs and arms were shaking to fight back the rising guilt.

Maria was not a weakling or a cry baby. But there was one thing that could make her break down. And that was when her abilities escaped from her and like a messy jumble of magic exploded destroying someones property or even maybe injuring someone who did not deserve it. She opened her eyes and stared like a whipped puppy at the two men. "I... I'm just s-so sorry." Her lip quivered but she only mentally slapped herself. Crying and sobbing would only cause more problems for them. So she took deep breaths and kept repeating sorry until the feeling of crying past and she could open her eyes again without fear of a breakdown or a flood or who knows.
