Erza stood firm as her mind was assaulted, having experienced this kind of influence before, yet as she focuses she sees Blood charge Minx. She went to help, but instead stopped herself and held her ground. If Blood failed, she'd have to protect the guild... With her own life. She came to terms that they might be completely and utterly without hope...
It was then that they awoke. They both sat up with a start and looked at each other, bewildering themselves at their sudden awakening. Creed stared into Kevin's eyes and Kevin stared back, except they were also staring through each other. They looked at themselves and their bodies were very dim... see through. "It's about time the two of you woke up." Mavis smiled, swinging her legs on an old stone that she liked to sit. "W-We died?" Creed asked her. The voices were... gone... The souls had been used up. "That's right! Luckily, your souls held themselves together and you got back here in one piece. Well, almost one piece... Kevin, you're missing about one-one hundredth of you. Your soul was shattered, and a tricky matter to sweep up."
"Now, if you would like ethereal bodies, just... focus on touching something. Your magic should do the rest." She wasted no time in showing them the ropes. It would be nice to have other ghosts around to chat with. The two men did, and at first they failed a few times, before Creed was picking up small rocks and Kevin got to the point he was juggling them. Mavis watched this all, amused at the two souls. They were conjuring up ethereal bodies, and it would take a while to get to the point they could cast magic from them, but it was a start. "C'mon boys, the guild is in danger!" Mavis then flew off, leaving the boys to scramble behind her, learning how to fly... well on the fly. "Wait, WHAT?!" They yelled in unison. "DON'T LEAVE UUUUUUUUUUUSSS!" Mavis's giggling could be heard far and wide, within the ranges of that small island.
