Matt, the expelled student from the academy was once again doing his duty of guarding the book of fate. As he held the rank of captain, he had a small group of guards to command and they were fully at his disposal.
One day, it was the same thing as always. Standing near the big door where the prized book was being held captive. However it wasn't long until he had a surprise visit, James soon entered the place and he saw Matt.
"My prince, what brings you here?" asked Matt.
He was very confused indeed, he was sure that he had done his job well.
"Its good to see you again Matt, now then...as for why I'm here. Matt, you are herby relieved of your duty of safeguarding the book of fate...." said James.
"R......relieved?! Surely there must be a mis....." said Matt.
"In order to join my army" finished James.
Now Matt was really surprised, was James actually asking him to join his army? Wait.......the only army that James commanded was a group of fairies. Not just any fairies, real guardian fairies.
"James, my prince...I am honored but wouldn't it be more appropriate to find someone else? Someone who has actually graduated from the academy?" asked Matt.
"Well my friend, the proof is already right in front of me. On your guard!" said James as he brought his red sword out.
Matt immediately reacted and blocked James's first strike. He was soon blocking more of James's strikes but the difference in skill between the two was quickly becoming clear and Matt was soon on the floor defeated.
After being helped up by James, Matt now had an understanding of his prince's caliber.
"You are worthy, just have some more confidence in yourself. Of course, maybe I should train you a bit more. Don't worry about your old position, I've already talked it through with the headmaster" said James as he walked away.
"My prince....." said Matt as he caught up with James.
"Please, just call me by my actual name" said James.
"Um......James.........why did you choose me?" asked Matt.
"Well there are lots of reasons but I'll narrow it down to two. One, I see a lot of myself in you....you worked hard to be strong in order to protect those close to you....yet fate stepped in and now you're a joke to many......its something that I myself can sympathize with. I wanted to be seen for who I was yet it was the fairies that reined supreme......and I became a fosh to them. Then there's the second reason, I was lucky to be given a second chance.....to make things right again and now it is fortunate that I am now in a position to offer you the same thing. To give you the chance to turn your life around, what happened back then will never be forgotten....but you're still the same guy with the same reason.....of why you joined the academy in the first place" said James.
As both James and Matt exited the royal library, James soon spoke with Matt again while handing him a piece of paper.
"Meet me at these coordinates, once there......I'll be personally training you" said James.
"Training me?" asked Matt.
"Well I have to make sure that you're good enough to stand with me since you're going to be in the presence of every guardian fairy in the magic dimension...you're good....but I'm going to have to make you better. You're a great guy Matt, this is why you were chosen. Fate is cruel....but perhaps what you need.....is a helping hand" said James.
James soon left for home, leaving Matt alone with his own thoughts.
"I really don't know if whether or not...I truly worthy of your attention but I'll try to live up to your expectations" thought Matt.
City of Domino
Princesses Tine, Mistelia, Silema and seven other fairies were walking through the town in their civilian forms. They wanted to see what it was like on James and Daphne's home world since now was a great opportunity and also to understand their new friends better.
"This place is nice" said Tine.
"When I first came here, I didn't have time to explore this world" said Mistelia.
"Nothing can compare to my home world but this is still pretty nice, great architecture.....friendly residents...." said Silema.
Suddenly the girls heard yelling from a nearby bar, then from directly out of the bar came two guys and they didn't look happy.
"You had better cough up the bill! You think this is enough?!" shouted one the first guy.
"I'm looking for my wallet, I'm telling you someone must have stolen it! And I'm the customer here, what kind of treatment is this?!" shouted the second guy.
"Eat less and you'll pay less scoundrel!" shouted the first guy.
"And I'm telling you that someone stole my wallet! Its disgraceful!" shouted the second guy.
As the girls continued watching the scene before them, they knew that they couldn't leave this alone. So they decided to step in, except.....
"Hey, what's going on here?!" yelled Silema.
As the two guys turned to face the girls, they had to acknowledge that they were pretty.
"This is between me and him, this guy has to pay for the bill!" shouted the first guy.
"And I will once I find the crook that stole my wallet!" shouted the second guy.
"So back off for now, maybe later we can go on a date and then after that we'll see some hot action" said the first guy.
This made the girls cross and they were blushing. Here's the thing, normally the citizens would recognize fairies because of their fairy forms. However, since the girls were in their civilian guises....these two men thought that they were a couple of pretty faces.
Although, even if they did appear in their enchantix forms...it would probably still be the same or worse.
"This guy......wants that kind of action?!!" thought Tine with an anger symbol on the side of her head.
Soon enough she initiated her enchantix transformation and the two guys soon realized that they were in the presence of guardian fairies after hearing the word enchantix.
Just then, a figure came down from the sky and landed in between the guys and the girls. It was James and he immediately ran towards Tine. To the girl's shock, James stepped into the light that was surrounding Tine.
James could see Tine in the middle of a huge magical space....and she was completely nude and James was really red in the face. He calmed down a little when he saw her body being covered by the magic of her enchantix, although this was still quite revealing and he admittedly liked what he saw. Tine's face was so calm, her eyes were closed, the way her hair flowed freely, how she moved her arms and legs.....it was so sensuous...especially when she smiled at the feeling of her magic surrounding her.
Quickly snapping out of it, James swam over to Tine and placed a hand on her petite shoulder. Tine was very surprised to see James, she was very shocked to see that James was in the middle of her transformation.
She was even more shocked when she felt her transformation unraveling itself from her body and soon enough she was back in her civilian clothing and out of the transformation field.
With that done, James then turned his attention towards the two guys. Of course as residents of Domino, they recognized their own prince and James was soon filled in on what had happened.
He then stepped on something, he looked down to find a blue wallet on the ground. Upon picking it up, the customer recognized it as his wallet. Once James returned the item, he then spoke severely to the two men.
"As prince of Domino, I will not tolerate behavior like this and as residents of Domino I expect you two to set a good example. Also you should both know that it is a capital offense to harass girls, especially when they happen to be guardian fairies. That right there can immediately grant you both either an extremely large fine or a death sentence and it won't be the police who'll do the latter....it will be them" said James as he gestured to his friends.
The two guys soon agreed with James and went back to their usual businesses. James then turned to his friends and nodded his head. Knowing what that meant, the girls all transformed into their enchantix forms. The citizens watched in awe as the beautiful fairies carried James away and most of them were jealous.
Soon James and the girls had arrived at the castle. Tine soon spoke with James privately.
"How did you do that earlier?" whispered Tine.
"If I told you the real reason, you wouldn't believe it. Also because I'm just strong, fast and skilled enough to do so. By the way, very nice body.....now I see why magic prefers girls....it knows all the good spots and its keeping them all to itself" whispered James with a smirk.
Tine blushed at what James had said, personally she was embarrassed but at the same time....she didn't mind the fact that James saw her like that. Deep down, she wanted it and so did the other girls.
Matt was at the place where James's coordinates led him to, it wasn't long until James showed up and Matt was nervous.
"Now then, this will be a simple sword training. Since you have no connection to magic, the blade will be your only companion. It is the mark of a warrior and it is my duty today to make sure that you are worthy of it. Now, ready position" said James as he brought his red blade out.
Matt did the same thing and he immediately kept his eye on James.
"We'll take it slow, one at a time. Block high.........block middle........block low, now faster. Block high...block low....block middle. Keep going" said James as he kept striking Matt with his sword.
Soon Matt's sword got thrown off his hand and James aimed his blade at Matt's throat.
"You're making this easy for me, ready position" said James.
Matt immediately got up and grabbed his sword. He waited for James to make his move.
"Now, swords like mine has power. There's energy in it, it constantly flows in and out of it. Almost like how a living being breathes in and out in order to take in air and release carbon dioxide" said James.
As James clashed his sword against Matt's, there were some sparks coming out of James's sword.
"There, can you feel it?" asked James.
When Matt nodded his head, James carried on.
"This sword is similar to yours, its heavy but its powerful. As is its strength, now.....remember the forms that were taught to you back in the academy. Ready position" said James.
Once both James and Matt were in position, James made a series of moves.
"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven" said James.
As Matt continued to blocked them all, he felt something different.
"My blade feels lighter now" said Matt.
"Yes...that's because you're connecting with it, its becoming a part of you. Now, we'll move on to the more difficult parts" said James.
As they continued their training session, James easily grabbed Matt's wrist and redirected his attack.
"However, you cannot solely rely on the blade. You must use all of your skills together, what you're learning now and everything else from the academy" said James.
Taking that to heart, Matt soon began implementing his legs into his fighting style.
"That's better, however....." said James.
He then did a simple leg sweep that sent Matt to the ground.
"Now you're focusing too much on your legs and that makes them a target. You must find a balance" said James.
As the training session continued, James soon called for a break and Matt was exhausted.
"What am I doing wrong?" asked Matt.
"Nothing......and perhaps that is my fault" said James.
Matt then looked at James with a question mark above his head.
"When you concentrate in battle and when you focus......you'll lose. But like I said, perhaps that is my fault. I cannot train you like the way my father taught me and how Master Hagen showed me, we are all different. And as your teacher, it is my duty to find different methods of training you. I see now...that you are adept at using your legs in conjunction with your sword. Perhaps we can work on that first, if you'll let me" said James.
".......As you say, my master" said Matt respectfully as he bowed.
James did the same thing and soon both master and student dueled once again.
5 days later/Castle
Within the castle, all of the guardian fairies were waiting for James as he had said that there was someone he wanted them to meet. Soon they saw him walking with someone else, once they got close enough...the girls could see another boy and the presumed he was a warrior just like James.
Once there, Matt could see just how many guardian fairies were there to meet him. Just like Tefal, this was Matt's first time seeing guardian fairies in person and their beauty alone has certainly caught his attention. The hair, the outfits and especially the wings.
"Go on......they're waiting" said James gently.
Slowly nodding, Matt walked carefully towards the first fairy in front of him. Once he was in front of her, he closed his eyes in order to calm himself down. Upon opening them again, he slowly extended his hand towards her.
The fairy soon took hold of it and Matt could feel the softness of her glove and it was comforting. The fairy then looked into Matt's eyes, she saw the eyes of someone who was afraid.....but at the same time...she saw the same determination that was present in James's eyes as well.
Soon...the fairy had a smile on her face and she soon nodded at her fellow fairies. Almost immediately, all of the fairies were smiling as well and they soon got to know more about Matt.
"It won't be an easy journey Matt, if you come with us.....you will be tested lots of times and some...may even cost you your life" said James.
"Well..........I've come this far didn't I? But.....will the people listen? Will they still believe in me? Most of them will know who I am and they'll know my history and rank" said Matt.
"Yes......they will......I don't know what the future holds, where this life will take you or what kinds of troubles you went through in the academy. Nor do I know what kinds of enemies you'll make as we journey forward together...but I want you to know, that no matter what you choose......your real family and this new family.....will stand by you. No matter what you choose......you have come a long way in such a short period of time. This life.....is your own" said James.
As everyone gathered around, for the first time ever....besides his parents........Matt felt like he was at home........and where he belonged.
End of chapter and we have a question. "Are fairies really that significant?"
Answer: In many ways, the answer is yes. If you were to ask someone what kind of protection would be the best, they will tell you that a guardian fairy is all they'll ever need. Once fairies become guardians, they are bound to fight evil and protect the magic dimension from all kinds of threats....be it something petty or something significant and they are more recognizable than the witches due to their reputation.
Also because fairies command magic, they are also in many ways superior to a specialist. Which is why it also grants the fairies some command over the young heroes in training. If you were to go back to season 2 episode 8, you'll see how it played out...such as Tecna guiding the specialists into position and Bloom giving the command to fire the wires at the Manticore. In that same episode, you'll also see some hints of the winx back in their younger days....how they viewed specialists and especially Helia since back then he was unwilling to fight except to protect Flora.
