Raven was still asleep when Eliezer woken up from his slumber resting for the night at the festival had drained her a bit with her dancing and singing then fleeing. Once he was gone though Raven slowly stirred from her slumber and sat up rubbing her eyes a bit before getting out of bed walking across the floor to the mirror to see how bad she looked since she slept in her only clothes that was brought to her. Once she rubbed the sleep from her eyes she looked in the mirror to see some wrinkles in her dress but nothing to bad but what caught her off guard was her hair, it went from from her crazy short length, from when she cut it to after what happened on one of her dates with Eliezer, to now past her shoulders in one night. “What the world?” She asked herself as she felt and tugged her hair a bit to see if it was real then pinched herself thinking she was dreaming still. It had hurt when she tugged on her hair and all she did was wince from pinching herself. “What caused this for I know this is not normal at all hair does not grow this fast.” Raven said examining it very confused and tried to think back what could of caused it but then remembered during the festival as she dance she could of sworn she felt different as she did her performance then how the moon just got brighter that night.
“What is going on?” She asked herself and soon Shadow walked in stretching and saw Raven shocked to see her new hair length.
“What the world Raven is that you?” Shadow asked and Raven looked at him.
“Yeah it is me so you noticed too my hair just magically grew from behind halfway down my ear to now a 5 inches past my shoulders.” Raven said to him as she tried to smooth out the wrinkles from her dress with her hands.
“Yes very odd indeed.” He said as he walked p to her and felt it himself wanting to make sure they both were not going crazy. “What could of done this?” He asked and Raven only shrugged at him before looking herself over in the mirror.
“Your guess is good as mine but also why are you in here I know this is not just to talk about my hair.” Raven said to him.
“Yes Lady Nemes just talked with the royal guards and choose to keep the secret that Eliezer left last night into the village but also master sent a note saying guards are also looking for you since you were the dancer last night to see what you say.” Shadow explained to Raven as she got her shoes on and found a ribbon and placed it in her hair to hold it back.
“Its got to be the Red Robin’s doing she sent the leak and now she wants to push it but what that little twit does not know is that I build credibility in this village so it's very hard to tarnish.” Raven explained to Shadow.
“What if they suddenly claim you are Moon Raven?” Shadow asked as Raven stopped and turned towards him with a smirks. “And who would believe a sweet young lady like myself who once was an orphan, grew up with her orphaned siblings along with starting up an orphanage with my own money and helped with problems in the village being known as the kindest and purest citizen." Raven explained to him as she kept her smirk. "How can anyone believe that I am a killer, this is why I build this reputation she would need to either expose me when I am in my gear along with ripping my mask off or somehow find some kind of evidence that I am the Moon Raven.” Raven explained to him and Shadow knew Raven had a back up plan for everything for it was her nature to try to stay a few steps ahead.
“For now keep gaining intel on what is going on and what they are plotting along with keeping the Nemes family safe, since she decided to go against Mathazar and Red Robin I am sure her family will be in danger.” Raven explained.
“I already too precautions I have traps set along with a few siblings willing to keep watch and Master is trying to find a way to temporarily move them without being known.” Shadow explained and Raven nodded.
“Good I do not want to see them being harmed for they have done nothing wrong but help Eliezer with a favor.” Raven explained as Shadow nodded at her. Raven then left the room to look for Eliezer.
Allister was with King Roberto back at the inn he was staying at but no one could enter or hear anything from outside the doors, window, and even wall like something was preventing it. Roberto looked very worried for they could not find Raven last night and what he witness scared him more.
“Your majesty what is wrong you have been on edge since last night please tell me for I can not help if I do not know.” Allister said to him and Roberto sighed as he sat down and his maid took his cane.
“Last night you noticed the moon seem to have gotten brighter right?” Roberto asked and Allister nodded. “You see the Lunar family is not just some royal family with this unique gene of birth of how all the first born have black midnight hair, fair white skin, and crystal blue eyes but also how from stories I have heard they are descendents of the first moon maiden from legend.” Roberto explained.
“Wait the moon maiden Lunars oldest legend/ myth?” Allister asked and Roberto nodded.
“Tell me Allister do you know the story?” Roberto asked and Allister nodded.
“Yes legend says that before Lunar was born a group of refugees fled from a distant land due to how the king treated them as slaves even his own son who lead the people away to find a better life. They had soon came to the land of Lunar where a snow storm hit. The people were starving and weak from their long journey along with loosing the lives of some of the people it said that the Young prince looked towards the moon begging for help from the Moon Maiden to save his people. Then the storm seem to suddenly stop along with the moon growing brighter.” Allister said as he thought recalling the story by memory. “It then said how a beam of light came down from the moon and before the young princes eyes a maiden appeared before him skin, fair and white that glowed in the night, bright crystal blue eyes and silver hair that shined. The prince then bowed before her knowing she was the moon maiden and wanted to show respect towards her for she was a higher being. It was then thanks to her help the prince and his people turned the land they settled to into the Kingdom of Lunar with the maidens help for she taught them architect, wisdom, math, reading, writing, and so much more until the prince was crowned king of the new land. Once the land and kingdom was stable the maiden returned to the moon and to honor what she has done the first king made a statue in honor of all she did and as one last blessing she blessed the first born with her skin and eye color while the hair mainly came from the first king.” Allister explained as Roberto listened.
“Very good but have you ever heard of the first ending for the ending you know is an altered ending.” Roberto explained.
“An Altered ending I do not understand.” Allister said as he looked confused.
“The first times the story was told before it was altered for many did not believe it or it was to protect the royals more in the story the Moon Maiden never return to the moon for the Moon Maiden and the new King of Lunar fell in love while she helped build the kingdom of Lunar and she was made queen of Lunar and thier first born did bare he skin and eye color and the kinds hair color but not only did they inherited that they had also inherited the Moon Maidens powers.” Roberto explained.
“Wait powers they ......they were born with the moon maiden powers that is impossible.” Allister said. “Magic is not really the moon maiden is a fairytale nothing more.” Allister said.
“That is how the Royal family wants it you see the first born were more of a target of kidnapping and being abused because if it by people who wanted to use their abilities for evil or their own purposes. So one of the descendents decided to protect the the bloodline and the kingdom he made it a law that no one outside of the royal family knew of their abilities and changed the records about the Moon Maiden but to help the first born with the powers they all go special training that had been pass down for over 100 years Aster went through it thankfully his mother left something for him to learn from since she passed before she could but now it looks like Ravens abilities are about to awaken fully that was just a small fraction and indication of what is to come next.” Roberto explained.
“Wait so Lunars royal family has magic?” Allister asked as Roberto nodded.
“Yes and some kingdoms do believe it for some hold the old records of it and they fear it so much that is way lunar has had wars and do what they could to protect the first borns I will not be shocked if that is the reason why the king of Dainia is trying to rid of the bloodline for he must fear it even though the abilities were used for good other kingdoms do not want to deal with one kingdom that is possibly more powerful then they are.” Roberto explained to Allister and he was dumbfound at al this.
“So if what you say is true what is to come for Raven then since she will have no way of knowing how to control this new power she will be obtaining soon?” Allister asked worried.
“If I remember correctly it’s going to involve sudden surges of powers that can either effect things around her or herself it mainly affected Asters body the most so he was in pain a lot. But once she learns to harness it she will be fine but that training takes a while it is one of the reasons I got to get her back to Lunar and fast all the books she needs are there along with old advisors that helped her grandmother and father get through this stage of their life though I will admit her powers are awakening later then her father his awakened when he was 13 she is in her 20s right?” Roberto asked and Allister nodded. “So now we have to hurry if the king sees this he will execute her right away and the lunar bloodline will die.” Roberto said with a serious voice and Allister mainly just looked worried knowing Raven will soon being in pain and confused what what will soon be happening to her.
