The job was a simple one. Hunt down a mage who stole from various towns in the past few weeks. Lucy Heartfilia continued to read the flyer over a few times for the details. The mage they were searching for was female; about 5'7" with long brown hair, light skin, green eyes, and a tattoo set across her left eye. She would also always be wearing a blue Heartkruz shirt and a pair of shorts wherever she appeared.
"Sounds easy enough, eh Erza?" The blonde haired beauty turned to her red haired ally. The Titania was walking alongside her- nodding to the girl's words. "She will be easy to spot. Attack, turn into authorities, and head back to the guild." Erza said to Lucy, her mind somewhat focused on the cake shopped they passed out of town.
"Yosh! 200,000 Jewels, here I come!" The two Fairy Tail mages continued to walk for almost an hour- reaching the town the flyer was from. When they arrived, they were greeted to a rather odd sight. Every single man, woman, and child within the town seemed to be at a complete calm. Even after being robbed by the enigmatic mage.
"This is totally bizarre…" Lucy said while looking around. The Celestial Mage had been in the town before. During a job with Natsu. Back then everyone was rather excited and full of energy. Now… They all looked as if they were in a trance.
"Let's hurry and find the mayor." Erza stated- focused on the mission before walking towards town hall. Lucy was quick to follow. After a brief discussion with the mayor- a plump man much shorter than the two teens- they were heading out of town.
"So she was last spotted leaving down this road?" Lucy asked Titania. Erza nodded in response before the two were on their way.
"We have no idea what kind of magic she uses then?" Lucy couldn't help but ask as they walked. Erza shook her head with crossed arms. "No one seems to be able to ascertain the type of magic she uses. I suspect it might be something to do with illusion magic."
"Then you'll be fine right? Since you have that eye of yours." Lucy pointed to said eye, referring to Titania's false one. The one given to her when she was but a child. "Yes. But we should still be cautious…"
For a brief moment there was a strange breeze that blew past them. Lucy and Erza seeming a bit dazed upon being hit by it… Suddenly, Erza threw a sword over Lucy's shoulder and into a nearby tree.
"Show yourself!" Erza demanded while paying no mind to the horror filled Lucy; the blonde on her backside while breathing heavily. 'She almost cut my head off…' Lucy thought to herself before turning to where Erza threw her blade. To her shock, there was a hand reaching out from the tree's bark. Sword caught in between its fingers.
"E-ehh???" Lucy squeaked at the random hand from the tree. Eventually a body began to form out of the tree- one of a young woman around their age. The enigmatic woman wearing a blue Heartkruz shirt and a pair of shorts… The same as the description…
"I see two more mages have come after me." The woman said with a small smile. Lucy and Erza felt their eyes widen at realization. 'It's her!' Lucy thought. However before she could say a word, Erza leaped into the fray. "W-wait Erza!" Lucy called out.
"Re-Equip!" Erza instantly went into her Flame Empress Armor. Blade lit ablaze as she struck at the woman. The fugitive easily slipped out of the blade's path with a chuckle.
"Now even taking the time to learn my name?" She asked before ducking over a large sweep of Erza's blade. "Re-Equip!" Erza was suddenly in her flight armor; slicing at great speeds to try and hit the enigma. Erza was dodged at every attack before being kicked away.
"Erza!" Lucy shouted while reaching for her keys. Holding up one of her keys she shouted, "Open the gate, Leo!" At her summons she expected to see Loki appear upon hearing a chime. Yet… he did not.
"H-huh? Loki where are you? Hello?" She asked while shaking the key- mouth twisted into a pout. She was snapped out of it however as she saw Erza attack once more. Each strike dodged with ease…
"My my, such a violent young woman is she not?" Lucy was sure her heart stopped for a moment as an arm wrapped around her shoulders. Slowly she looked to her side, seeing the fugitive gripping onto her. 'E-eh? B-but how did-' Lucy turned back to Erza, only to realize the red head was swinging at nothing at all. Simply the air…
"Now that she is preoccupied, we can speak. The name is Nihs Pyos." The criminal revealed herself as before moving away from her. Lucy jumped back and gripped on two of her keys. "Now now hun, what're you gonna do with those twigs?" Nihs' words confused Lucy before the blonde looked at her "keys." To her absolute show was that her keys were replaced with small twigs.
"How did you do that?" Lucy asked, being a bit cautious what to do. Nihs gestured over to Erza before saying, "Just a bit of magic. I can easily put anyone under suggestion with ease." Nihs circled around Lucy while looking her over.
"That should have worked on Erza… She's resistant to eye magic."
"I overheard. However, it's not my eyes that do the trick. It's this." Nihs explained while tapping on her tattoo. "The instant anyone lays eyes on it, they are under my spell. As you are now my dear~" Lucy meanwhile just stood there, unaware of she was only sealing her own fate…
'Is that really possi-' Lucy's thoughts were interrupted by Nihs placing a hand over her eyes. "Now you stay here for a moment." The woman ordered before dropping her hands. Lucy's eyes upon reveal were glazed over. Expression slack as she stood there quietly. Once seeing the Celestial Mage all set, Nihs walked over to the still swinging Erza.
"Heel!" The powerful Titania stopped in place at Nihs' word; Re-Equipping back into her normal armor. "Good. Now sit." Once more Erza obeyed. The red head dropping to her hands and knee- bottom against the floor. Erza meanwhile was looking up at Nihs with confusion. "What is this-"
"Quiet." That single word caused Erza to grow quiet. The warrior sitting there with a mixture of confusion and anger; all while Nihs giggled like a school girl.
"You are such a cuuuuute young lady~" Nihs suddenly shot forward- nose touching against Erza's. Her eyes glowing a bright green upon locking with blue ones. Erza figured instantly that the woman was activating some type of eye magic. Knowing her advantage against it, Erza shut her left eye while leaving the right open. Knowing that any eye magic would be negated due to said eye being false.
"Sorry honey, but that won't work for this case~" Nihs gently placed a hand against Erza's left brow. Said action somehow causing that eye to slowly open. 'H-how is this possible?!' Erza thought while gazing into Nihs' eyes. They were so deep… So bright… The girl unaware that she was already far under Nihs' control…
Erza's body began to go slack; a strange sense of numbness overlapping her mind. "Good girl. Goooood girl…" Nihs whispered into Erza's ear; the mage's eyes beginning to glaze over as thoughts became scrambled. Nihs could only smile as she stroked the red head's cheek.
"Good girl. Now let those thoughts fade away. And become what you were meant to be. A cute. Little. Puppy~" Those words took full effect on Erza. The red head unexpectedly wiggling her butt against the floor as a dog would its tail. Tongue hanging outside her mouth as she panted softly; expression twisted into one of happiness.
"Lay down." Erza did as commanded, laying her torso against the dirt floor. "Roll over." Once more Erza obeyed, rolling like a log against the ground.
"Beg." Like before Erza obeyed. Getting on both knees, hands raised in the position a dog would beg- all while whimpering. With a giggle Nihs lightly rubbed the girl's head. "Good Erza. Now," with a flick of her wrist a squeak ball appeared in her hand, "fetch!" With a quick toss the ball was sent flying. Erza shooting after it on hands and feet while barking. She reached the ball in a matter of seconds- having trouble grabbing it due to her mouth being smaller than said ball. Eventually she was able to do so before running back to Nihs. Once reaching the mage Erza dropped the ball with a few yips.
Kneeling down Nihs began to pet the dog like Erza. "That's my good girl. Now sit while mama takes care of your little friend." With that Erza fell back onto her backside; knees and hands against the floor as she panted happily. Seeing Erza behaving allowed Nihs to walk back over to the dazed Lucy. Looking over the girl Nihs realized that Lucy was still holding onto her whip. With great care Nihs took said whip and tossed it aside, along with grabbing her bag of keys.
"Awaken. But be still." At those words, Lucy blinked a few times; eyes no longer glazed over. "H-huh…?" Lucy mumbled while coming out her daze. Her eyes fell upon Nihs and to the panting Erza behind her. "E-Erza are you okay?!" She was responded with a couple of barks from Erza. Lucy was sure her eyes were as wide as dinner plates.
"What did you do to her?!" Lucy yelled while motioning to grab her keys. However her body was ridged, unable to do anything other than stand there. "W-why can't I move?!"
"No more talking honey. Mama's got to get home, and you're coming with me~" Before Lucy could respond Nihs gripped her by the chin and locked eyes. The same glow she had used on Erza was now being used against Lucy; the latter slowly feeling her mind begin to fade. Lucy could not resist as her mind was pulled in by the deep green eyes… Before her mind had faded, a simple thought came to her mind.
'Nihs… Pyos… Hyp… No… Sis…' Those were the last words thought before her mind faded away. Gently the girl was lowered onto her hands and knees. Taking on a seated position as Erza did.
"Lucy, Lucy. You are oh so silly. Lucy Lucy, such a good kitty~" Once more Nihs' powers of suggestion took full effect. Lucy suddenly taking on a more relaxed look.
"Mwow~" Lucy let out before motioning towards Nihs. The former rubbing herself against the latter's leg while purring. Nihs could not help but giggle at how cute Lucy was. Acting just like an adorable kitten. "My my Lucy, what a pwecious widdle kitty."
Nihs was quick to have her fun with Lucy. The girl threw out a ball of yawn which Lucy immediately responded to. Bouncing it between her hands while mewing like a kitten. Afterwards Nihs motioned Lucy onto her back while holding a ribbon above her. Instincts taking hold Lucy began to paw up at it while mewing softly.
"Come here Erza." Erza was quick to be at the woman's side while panting happily. "Time to get you two in proper outfits." Wrapping her magic around Lucy, the blonde's clothes suddenly changed. Simple white and blue shirt was replaced with a black corset which showed off her ample breasts on the front; covering only the outer sides of the breast. It was laced with pink colored frills; only kept together by a few strings in the middle. Skirt replaced with short shorts of the same color and lace at the top. On her hands and feet were paw-like gloves and shoes. Lastly was a combo of cat ears atop her head, a long black tail, and a collar with a large golden bell attached to it. Lucy mewed a few times, no longer concerned about her appearance.
"And finally my sweet puppy~ Re:Equip." Using Erza's still active magic, Erza's clothing changed as well. It was almost identical to Lucy's; albeit from being all white with blue frills, having a pair of dog ears, fluffy tail, and a collar with a bone on it.
"That's better. Now come along my dears. Mama's gonna take her babies home." With that Nihs Pyos began to walk forward. At her heel followed both Lucy and Erza. Erza panting happily at the chance of her master taking her for a walk, while Lucy mewed at the idea of taking a nap on master's lap.
Two powerful Fairy Tail mages. Gone from being the woman's hunters to being her pets…
But would they be her last…?
