A Sorcerer's Reasons - Sequel CH4
Piltover - The City of Progress (Part 1/2)
Sunlight flashed through the shady layers of leaves and left a warm blanket of heat onto Lulu's unconscious body. She was found to be laying on the roots of a tree, half drooling and muttering in her sleep. Her stomach rose and fell in a pattern-like rhythm as her nose inhaled oxygen to breathe. Pix laid fast asleep on the rim of the sorceress's pointy hat, originating a high-pitched snore just suitable for a miniature faerie. The spirit twitched his ears in sudden reaction to the passing breeze while his wings vibrated to relax his body. His head snuggled deeper into his twiggy arms as a tall shadow loomed over his figure. Neither Pix or Lulu perceived that Teemo, The Swift Scout, was standing above the two, hesitant on waking up his friend. After seeing her innocent face cuddled against her shoulders, he slanted the shape of his lips with an awkward expression. The scout used his equipped dart shooter to scratch behind his furry head, pondering if he should interrupt Lulu's slumberous condition. He started to repeatedly poke Lulu with his bamboo stick as a conclusion to his mental question.
"Hey," Teemo hushed, "Wake up ya sleepy head."
The harmless stick of bamboo squished the witch's cheek as he chuckled on how silly she appeared to be. Teemo forced his item deeper into her skin and rotated it, and her eyes began to wince of irritation.
"Stop that.... Pix," Lulu murmured and puckered her eyebrows. Teemo prodded his bamboo stick around her skin as he snickered one last time and retracted his weapon.
Pix lazily expanded one eye open in response to Lulu's pout and feebly shifted his vision around in his drowsy circumstance. Taking one last look at the Swift Scout's appearance, he moderately dropped his eyelid and drifted back into his previous inception, thinking that yesterday's incidents included him in his sleep.
"Come on, ya lazy witch! Wakey, wakey!" Teemo raised his tone to persuade her conscious to return to reality, and began chortling again.
"Ya don't wanna miss your ride to Piltover, do ya?" The male yordle placed his tiny hand on his hip, while his other hand started poking Lulu's stomach with his dart shooter once more. Teemo then examined her actions closely to find any sign that she was awake.
As soon as his words were sent into her nerves, Lulu's eyes jolted open after taking in the knowledge of his statement. She had totally forgotten about her booked trip to her desired destination, and her mind was swarming with objectives to complete. But she felt exhausted, after hours of failed attempts to fall asleep last night. Her eyes had finally closed and her mind was at ease when Pix had hummed a brief lullaby near Lulu's ear.
Lulu dragged herself upright as soon as a flash of the black and blue wizard popped in her head. In reaction, she propped her forehead onto her tiny hand with deliberation and gloomily looked up at Teemo, who was waiting patiently for his associate to follow him.
"I feel so tired..." Lulu weakly stated, struggling to keep her eyes open.
"Ah, don't worry Lulu. Ya'll have this excited feeling once ya see the awesome view of Valoran from the balloon ride!" Teemo chirped.
Lulu climbed herself out of her sleeping position and stood up straight, discovering Pix barely stretching by her side. Lulu mimicked his actions and forced her arms up to the sky and let out a massive yawn. A few moments after the Fae Sorceress finished her morning warm-up, Teemo led her to Bandle City's border since her leftover exhaustion had her conscious lacking sense of direction. Lulu stabbed her staff into the ground and jerked it forwards as she walked, considering that it would support her weight as her body was moving.
Lulu blinked moderately to keep herself alive, regretting the fact that she had stayed up all night unable to sleep, and fumbling with Veigar's hat strings on her staff. The witch repeatedly denied the fact that she was constantly rethinking the possibilities of his consequences, but she did have to admit, she missed him. Veigar's complaints were fainting in her brain, and Lulu remembered those rare hugs she presented him when she had the chance to. But those fireworks, oh she didn't even wanted to get started with that. It was marvelous and extraordinarily amazing, especially having the company of the Tiny Master Of Evil with her. Lulu longed for more friendship moments with him, and she understood that her goal of ridding his pain came so close, yet so far. She did not know absolutely what to do. That's when her journey to Piltover came into thought. Lulu thought that maybe exploring the area and visiting an old friend, also known as a prodigy, would assist her mind in clearing things up. Maybe those activities would give her ideas of how to search for him as well.
"Ya doing okay back there? We're almost there now," Teemo declared and extracted his telescope. One eye squeezed shut while the other one peeked through the scope of the item.
"Yep, I'm fine," Lulu replied with a grin, marching to the beat of her steps with her staff creating small holes in the pebbled dirt.
The Swift Scout nodded with approval, and continued waddling as he began to start a conversation with the Fae Sorceress.
"So, did ya see the fireworks a few nights ago?" Teemo took his vision off of his sight tool and glanced at Lulu as he kept moving.
Lulu blinked at a faster rate with puzzlement at the thought of the fireworks display with Veigar. She halted in her steps for a few seconds on what to say, then continued strolling.
"Er... yeah. Yes, I did in fact." Hesitation was caught in her throat.
Pondering on the facts that Veigar had done some harmful crimes to Bandle City, she sure wasn't in hell going to chat with Teemo about his enemy.
"Y'know, the town seniors had the idea of putting them up!" The Swift Scout proclaimed with exhilaration, "There was a wedding between two young yordles. It turned out to be the elders' children! But not the siblings, of course."
Lulu's ears lurched with interest, "I'm listening, continue please."
"Well, rumor was that if there were fireworks occurred during a wedding, two young yordles at a different gender spectating it would fall in love with each other no matter what the case was! That's why the fireworks were mainly red, if ya noticed." A smile played itself across Teemo's face and he pivoted his direction towards Lulu. From his position, he started pacing backwards and fiddling with his telescope. Though the scout realized that Lulu's facial expression immediately changed after what he had stated. Her face was abnormally flushed red, and her fingers began trembling against her staff, making her walk clumsily.
"Hey, what'sa matter? Your face is all pinkish," the male yordle inquired and wrinkled his nose.
"Are you certain that's a real story?" Lulu allowed a sweat to drop and made an effort to conceal her redness. Her side lip began shaking with anxiousness, failing her fake smile and carrying a heavy thought about her and Veigar spectating the fireworks display that night. Lulu had shown affection towards him as well....
"Oh, are ya worried about that?" Teemo chuckled as he covered his mouth with his tiny green glove from uncontrollable laughter, "I don't know if you were with somebody at that time, but I do know it's a myth. Then again, ya never know. The clever seniors had claimed it was a true story ~ "
"Er.. r-right," Lulu stammered and shifted her eyes to the side, trying not to make things obvious.
"...and the map of Valoran is over here, in case ya get lost or ya wanna chart some areas. And don't forget, I don't prepare any food in here, so ya gonna have to eat right away when ya land. Contact me when ya get to his building so I know ya are fine," Teemo listed the preparations and rules for his hot-air balloon for the second time, as he eyed Lulu for any concern towards his instructions, "Do ya want me to repeat that again?"
After mentally counting her fingers and muttering to herself, Lulu peered at Teemo and chuckled with a drop of sweat, "Yeah, I can manage it." She goofily scratched the back of her head.
The Swift Scout folded his arms and puckered his eyebrows, "If ya harm my ride, ya gonna have to pay for it's damages okies?"
Lulu giggled at his expression and waved good-bye at Teemo as she untied the rope that secured the carriage, "I know, I know, I promise! I'll be sure to put on my thinking cap if I don't know what to do!"
Teemo laughed and mimicked her previous actions as the hot-air balloon began to rise higher into the clouds. He waved farewell to her associate, especially hoping that she wouldn't get herself into a clumsy accident. He shrugged it off and watched Lulu take off to the direction of Guardian's Sea.
The hot-air balloon started to float above the ocean and Teemo's figure shrunk smaller in the Fae Sorceress's perspective. After her sight was unable to detect him, Lulu swung her body off of the edge of the carriage and landed on her bottom. Impact hit her leg when Lulu teetered over, and minor agony occurred.
"Ouch, that hurt..." she winced and rubbed her thigh.
Meanwhile, Pix pulled out Valoran's map from the bag on the ground and carefully unrolled the parchment. He placed it by his side and examined the point of their destination. The faerie marked an 'X' on Piltover with a pencil, and started to draw dotted lines towards southeast until he reached Guardian's Sea. After she was healed from her small collapse, Lulu peered over the faerie's side and blinked curiously at his works of mapping. He began to demand her attention, and gestured her his idea of the shortcut towards Piltover on the chart. It assumed to Lulu that Pix had scribbled lines over Noxus and Zaun, and Noxus was what worried Lulu the most.
"Are you sure we should pass by Noxus? It seems dangerous. We could just float over the sea near Bligewater and Ionia then go around Zaun," Lulu protested.
Pix nodded slowly in agreement and placed his finger on his chin in deep thought. He proclaimed that it would work, but it would take longer to reach there in Lulu's desired time.
"Here." The Fae Sorceress snatched the pencil out of Pix's other hand and suggested, "We can do this."
Lulu erased Pix's work and wiped the eraser bits away. She stuck her tongue over her upper lip and narrowed her eyes with concentration. Lulu then sketched lines through Guardian's Sea through the mountains that was to the north of Noxus.
Her tongue returned into her mouth as she put down her writing implement, picked up the map, presented it in Pix's view, and showed him her main points of their journey, "We can go around Noxus above Guardian's Sea and go through this little path here above Ironspike Mountains. From there, we can easily get to Piltover and pass by Zaun without receiving trouble from them or Noxus." She beamed as a proud conclusion to her idea.
Pix chirped with a smile showing that he agreed with her concept. Then he started to fly near the corner of the carriage and took a gander at the villages of Valoran. The hot-air balloon was almost face-to-face with Noxus-- above the sea of course-- as Lulu used her magic to guide the balloon towards her direction from the map.
Lulu laid fast asleep in the carriage with small snores flying out of her mouth. Pix cuddled on her hat in a position of how a dog would sleep, and moderately swayed his wings back and forth. A sudden breeze knocked the balloon abrupt, and caused Lulu's slumberous condition to wake up. She blinked at a normal rate to keep her eyes open, and tried another way by rubbing her eyes. The Fae Sorceress scanned her surroundings and all she peered was the tan color of the balloon carriage. She stood upright, dropping Pix near the floor and poorly waking him up with a startle. He rapidly fluttered his wings as his conscious reacted quickly, hovering over his ground and shooting an upset glare at Lulu.
Finding their day to switch to evening, the sunset's rays gave off their location above Ironspike Mountains and was barely reaching Piltover. Lulu placed her hands on the rim of the carriage and feasted her eyes on the beautiful view of the sunset. Her eyes moderately blinked with a wide smile and Lulu propped her head on her hand. The other hand rested on the edge of the hot-air balloon as Pix grumblingly folded his hands at Lulu's back then looked down at the view of the mountains. The speed of the hot-air balloon actually went by pretty quickly. In a blink of an eye, they were already at the border of the city. The speeding cause was probably Lulu's Whimsy on the balloon, and it's normal speed that Teemo adjusted during his free time. Her stomach growled, and Lulu remembered Teemo's quote that he didn't keep food on the ride. She would have to eat supper at Piltover as soon as she landed.
As soon as the hot-air balloon arrived above the sea that carried sailboats, Lulu shot her eyes wide with such unexpected feeling from Piltover's appearance. Sure, she had been here before, but only once. During her absence, it changed at a great difference, and Lulu could not wait to receive the exploring tour of the town from the prodigy. She could not even imagine the amazing feature of the town owning a mine. Pix opened his jaw in awe as well and stared at the main skyscraper in the middle of the city. The rivers had expanded with white bridges over them. The tallest skyscraper that Lulu had ever seen was also white and was at the same levitation as the hot-air balloon. The sailboats at the sea had new designs, and they were much more beautiful than before. It was elegant, and definitely described Piltover's scientific definition of discovery. Their new docks were invented and was a perfect landing area for Lulu's borrowed hot-air balloon. Surely the citizens of the City of Progress would allow her to stay, she thought. Fountains were scattered everywhere in the corner of each house, and Lulu could scarcely spy tiny citizens chatting and smiling with greets.
The Fae Sorceress closed her eyes and let out a massive sigh. Veigar, The Master Of Evil repeatedly flashed through her mind. Lulu had to find him, and she was desperate to search for his truth. She refused to let out a single tear, a tear that was all the reasons of her care towards his betrayal. The witch longed for help, and she knew she would grasp that in her hands now that she was at the City of Progress-- the home of the scientific geniuses.
Lulu steered the balloon to descend at the docks as she received permission from the guy who was in charge of the zone. She requested him to have the items in the carriage be secured, and that nothing harmful would happen to it. The guy nodded in a state knowing that he understood, and Lulu smiled at him with gratitude.
"Thank you, sir," she politely dipped her head and tipped him some leftover coins from Bandle City.
The man refused to take her money, "Kind yordles like you are always welcome, my friend. No need to owe payment."
He returned the coins, "You will need this money for food and a place to stay, am I correct?" The man considered.
Lulu tilted her head with concern as she thought about his remark. She nodded with agreement and accepted the refund from him, "Why yes I maybe will. Thank you for your cooperation."
She gave him thanks and took off with Pix, her staff in her left hand as she marched with a trail of small holes behind her. The first area she began to search was the town square. It was a large place, in fact. But it would take forever to find her friend in this circumstance, especially since hundreds of citizens crowded around the fountains. Lulu decided that she would start her search at the Piltover's Sheriff Department.
On her way, many people either greeted her, or declared that she was always welcome here. Their relationship with Bandle City was quite well and Lulu was thankful for that. Pix guided her friend at the foot of the steps of the porch that belonged to the Sheriff's Department. The faerie's sense of direction, Lulu thought, was actually not that bad.
With hesitation on thinking that she would interrupt the sheriff's business, the purple-haired witch pushed the wooden door open and immediately darted her eyes around the building. To her surprise, no one was around. Lulu released her hand on the door, suddenly perceiving a suspicious ring of a bell above her. She looked up, discovering a small bell that was suppose to signal the sheriff if anyone was entering her department. Seeing no one to be in her presence, Lulu walked over to the desk with two chairs in front of it. She decided to sit on one of them, then she looked around and described her surroundings. The desk was messy; scattered files and a broken lamp. A grandfather clock across Lulu continuously ticked in a rhythmic pattern. A painting of Piltover was framed on the wall next to the hallway, and Lulu admired the statue that was discovered and signed by Ezreal, the Prodigal Explorer.
Lulu got up from her seat and slowly paced over to the statue. From up close, she could see a still woman with silk cloth covering her body, and tears were carved in her face. Just as Lulu was about to touch it out of curiosity, the sound of a woman loudly clearing her throat demanded her attention. Lulu promptly jerked back her hand and pivoted around to find Caitlyn, the Sheriff of Piltover, crossing her arms and leaning on the wall on the side of the hallway.
"I heard a ring?" Caitlyn referred to the bell on the door and glanced at Lulu's appearance from her head to her toes, "What is your business here, Fae Sorceress?"
She released her arms and walked over to the yordle as the sheriff talked with an old-fashioned accent, giving Lulu an inquiring look. Lulu gave her an awed look in return of her reaction to Caitlyn's knowledge of her identity so swiftly. She examined Caitlyn's appearance and found her to be wearing her Sheriff outfit. The golden star on her vest gleamed brightly and brought out the boldness of Caitlyn's bravery. Her shorts were very short and exposed most of her slim thighs. Her boots made a pounding noise against the wooden floor as she stepped and the Sheriff of Piltover raised an eyebrow at Lulu.
"Are you just going to stand there looking like a fool or are you going to answer my question?" She declared with a frown and placed a hand on her hip.
Lulu snapped back into reality, "Oh, excuse me, my apologizes. I'm here for some information, Miss Caitlyn." She tried to be as polite as she could.
Caitlyn unexpectedly smirked at her positive attitude and knelt down at her level.
She patted Lulu's head with satisfaction, "Proud of your manners, child. What information do you need? I'd be glad to help."
"Um, I thank you for your compliment. But I'm in the need for the location of the Prodigal Explorer, do you have any idea where he is?" Lulu asked and cocked her head slightly.
Caitlyn stood up and smeared off her smirk, "You mean Ezreal? I'm not certain, although I last heard that he was in the mines. I don't know myself, but you ought to ask Heimerdinger in person. All I can inform you, Fae Sorceress." She glanced at the grandfather clock with desire for the time.
Lulu bit her lip with disappointment, carrying empty knowledge of Ezreal's whereabouts, "Then would you happen to know where he is?"
The Sheriff took her eyes off of her clock and faced Lulu, "Heimerdinger? Well that I know of. He is at Piltover Customs, like always."
The Fae Sorceress nodded and thanked Caitlyn with a dipped head. She was about to exit the building with Pix until Caitlyn halted her in her footsteps.
"I forgot to remind you. If anyone gives you trouble-- or to be specific-- does not allow you permission to enter the mines, Piltover Customs, or the Academy, you can tell them that the Sheriff of Piltover gave you the access to." Caitlyn gifted her a wink, "Anyone from Bandle City is always welcome here, especially the curious ones."
Lulu beamed in return and knew it was safe to act silly, "Thank you, I'll be sure to remember that."
She pushed the door and left the department along with the faerie, and the witch heard the bell ring once again on her way out. Lulu peered both ways of the horizontal path before stepping off the porch and finding the zone to be quite remote. Not many people were near the Sheriff's Department, comparing to the amount of people from before. Lulu predicted that everyone went off to the inn especially for their extraordinary restaurant. She had only been there once, and had favored their appetizers. Discovering signs with arrows that were stamped with Piltover Customs logos, she was easily lead to the garage that carried the original logo that was in a bigger size. It stood over the garage with peeling paint and worn out wood. The sign practically looked like cardboard. Lulu took in a deep breath, detecting the smell of burned metal and lurched her ears in reaction to the sudden noises. Engines that failed to worked were perceived by Lulu as well as words of cursing and she winced her eye with a shocking nerve sent down her spine. She peeked in the room from the edge of the building to check on what had occurred. Lulu shifted her eyes from Heimerdinger in his Piltover Customs uniform to Corki, who was smashing a worthless piece of an engine on the tile floor.
"Them engines, dang it. We'll never get this junk to work if ya keep screwin' it!" Corki exclaimed.
"Well, my apologizes Corki. I am not familiar to this piece of work that Ezreal kindly sent in," Heimerdinger protested.
Lulu's instincts perked up at Ezreal's name, and she placed her hand off of the wall as she stood up straight right between the pair. Not wanting to interrupt so loudly, she cleared her throat and lightly knocked the side of the wall with her staff, receiving attention from Corki and Heimerdinger.
"Ah, Lulu, and Pix! Excuse us here, we're just slacking off and experimenting with machines." Heimerdinger nodded rapidly to his excuse and spoke with stammers, "What brings you here to Piltover Customs?"
Pix hummed with delight after hearing his voice again and Lulu laughed in reaction to his bluff.
"How's Bandle City?" He inquired as he cleaned up his wrench.
"Well, considering that I'm banned from there, I don't really know myself, Heimer." Lulu slanted her lip and planted a hand on her hip. She supported her body against her staff and eyed Corki with a welcoming nod. Her focus returned to Heimerdinger as he continued speaking.
"As long as that dastardly Veigar doesn't go by and start crime, then Bandle City should be alright!" The Revered Inventor declared with even more stutters.
Lulu widen her eyes at his comment, and immediately looked to the side with grief as her hand began drifting off behind her neck. Pix noticed this and elbowed her shoulder to remind her not to worry about the sorcerer's departure, and especially not to make things obvious. Lulu quietly hushed him stubbornly signing that she understood and quickly released her weight on her staff. Corki noticed something suspicious and decided to question her. He shoved his tools away from repairing his vehicle and wiped his hand with a rag.
"Is something wrong? Ya looked pretty upset after what Mr. Wackojob here said." He jerked a thumb at Heimerdinger and furrowed his eyebrows. Corki's goggles flashed abnormal light in her face as Lulu shielded her vision with the shadow of her hand.
"Look, sorry Heimer. I'm not here to visit. I'm looking for Ezreal. Have you seen him?" Lulu ignored Corki's remark after taking her hand off of her face and suddenly requested for her friend's location.
"Why, he just left the place. If you want to visit him, then you should go to the inn. He stated that he was going to take a break at the restaurant."
"Thanks, that's all the information I need," Lulu proclaimed and waved a hand before she turned around and departed. Pix fluttered his wings at a quicker rate as he took a glance at Heimerdinger and Corki one last time. He smiled and waved properly and drifted off near Lulu's shoulder.
The Daring Bombardier raised an eyebrow at the duo and faced Heimerdinger with a suspecting expression, "She bears an unusual secret, Revered Inventor. I can't put out of what her intentions are."
"Ah, don't worry about her, my friend. She is a curious one indeed," Heimerdinger reassured and returned to his work, "The Fae Sorceress will have many adventures waiting for her in the future."
"Hmph, if ya say so." Corki snatch the inventor's wrench and began to twist a screw.
The Fae Sorceress arrived at the inn longer than she expected. It was night time, and it proved to Lulu of how long it took to find a certain person for major information. The crescent moon in the sky was barely exposing itself, while the clouds moderately floated and prevented the moon's full appearance. She stood in front of the inn with a hand placed on the wooden door, hesitant on barging inside. Lulu knew for a fact that hundreds of people would be grouped inside, since she already heard noise from outside and that there was a popular restaurant on the first floor. She apprehended herself that it would cause her no trouble, because not every single person inside was going to focus their attention on one customer. Lulu allowed herself a sigh and pushed the door open.
Several people inside had looked over at her with a welcoming smile, but more than half of the people did not care over one tiny yordle's arrival. It was dim inside, a dark building that represented the opposite of Piltover's outside exposure. Citizens sat at bars and chatted friendly to others, drinking liquid that was unfamiliar to Lulu. A whole group of people were dining at tables, and it seemed there wasn't a single path to walk through to get to a certain area. Letting go of the door behind her, Lulu allowed Pix to scan the whole area with his keen vision. He easily spotted a blonde boy eating a simple bowl of salad at an empty table. He had equipped goggles on the top of his head, his white scarf was neatly stuffed around his neck, and he wore a dark green shirt covered by a brown explorer jacket. A glove worn on his left hand had a glowing blue circle in the middle, and it easily gave away his identity to Lulu. It was no doubt, she thought, it was definitely him.
A smirk played itself across Lulu's face, and she desperately squeezed through the crowd as quickly as she could before Ezreal would finish his food and set off. After sliding behind one last chair, Lulu rapidly paced to his desk and slapped a hand on his table to catch his attention as she heavily panted. She abruptly beamed with exhilaration and looked below his face to see if she trapped his sight. Ezreal was about to stick a forkful of lettuce in his mouth just before the sorceress slammed the table. Now he just stupidly sat there blinking at her and hysterically froze in the middle of his action of devouring his vegetables. He released his grip on his fork and placed it back in his bowl with his mouth closed. Ezreal then chuckled and wiped off a mouthful of ranch sauce with a cloth napkin before he glanced at his old friend.
"Hey there, Pipsqueak. Long time no see!" He leaned his elbow on the table and presented her an excited grin, "You made quite the appearance there. I haven't seen you since last week's match. How've you been?"
Lulu angled her lips with confusion and helped herself to the chair across the Prodigal Explorer. After scooting herself in along with the wooden chair, she mimicked Ezreal's actions and propped her face on her hand as well.
"Actually I need help. Professional help," she frowned and glanced at the boy's unfinished salad. Lulu gulped and resisted to urge to eat his food, her stomach roaring for something to digest as she shifted her sight back to Ezreal.
The Prodigal Explorer laughed and prodded his plate closer to Lulu, "You must be starving. It's a long way from Bandle City without food, help yourself."
"Thanks," Lulu weakly smiled before she swiped his fork and gobbled up the whole thing like a maniac.
As the yordle ate to her heart's content, Ezreal retreated his smile and lowered his volume as he ducked his head in, "So is it an emergency-like help, like really important?"
Lulu lifted her head up, revealing a stain full of ranch on her mouth and shrugged, "It might be to me, but not to you."
"Kid, your problem is my problem. Why don't we take this somewhere else, like a word in private?" Ezreal suggested with a smirk.
"I don't think that is necessary, but if it makes you feel any better then fine." The Fae Sorceress responded and started to conceal her face in his plastic bowl again.
The blonde adjusted himself upright and left a couple of coins on the table. Ezreal yanked the witch off of her seat as she frantically reached out for the salad with a cry. He abandoned his leftover food for the waitress to clean up and dragged the starving Lulu towards the exit of the diner.
"We'll take this to my house. Why don't you tell me more on the way, Pipsqueak?" Ezreal proclaimed without looking back at the tortured girl.
"But-but! My food!" Lulu hollered and wailed for her treat.
