ok here it is chapter 6, have a nice read, as always, sorry if there are some miss spells, its a little longer but have fun XD.

Spoiler:
Chapter 6

20:00 PM

Everything started four days ago, the day Nanoha called Yūno, when Fate and Vivio returned home, the little girl was all exited.

“Nanoha-mama I back! You have no idea what I just saw!!” Vivio was really happy about it. “Hello Vivio, welcome home, what was it?” Nanoha asked in wonder “an amusement park is going to be open in four days! They have posters all over the place! Can we go please?! It’s on the weekend, so there is no school, can we go?”

Nanoha was unsure on what to say, there were a lot of things going on, but Fate voice came to help the little girl convince her mother “I think it’s a good idea, we can go and have fun, what do you think Nanoha? It’s been a while since the three of us went out.”

Nanoha just smiled; there was really no reason for not going, Yūno told her that as soon as he finds anything about Nanoha’s request, he would call, besides Dr. Isaac was also working on how to help Fate “very well, in four days the Takamachi family will go to that amusement park, does it have a name?”

“Yeah, but it was kind of weird, wasn’t it Fate-mama?” The little kid tilted her head while asking “Yes, I also think it was kind of a strange name, and a long one, but the promotion poster said -SOSDAN Park-” Nanoha now tilted her headed on Fate words “-SOSDAN Park-? What is that supposed to mean?”

Meanwhile in the TSAB, Hayate was informed that her second requested magician will arrive in four days, so she decided to incorporate the one that was already on the TSAB. She explained the situation to her subordinate, who was shocked like the Wolkenritter were when they first heard, but Hayate didn’t wanted to waste any time “Listen to me, I know this is hard for you, but those are the facts, and now is my duty to protect the book at all cost, the TSAB will grant you unlimited resources for anything I ask you, so for now you will investigate Dr. Isaac Prowder”

The subordinate was surprised “Why him? You just said that he seems innocent, and a nice person, so what is the point on investigate him?” But Hayate didn’t think the same way “certainly he seems like a nice person, but as such, sometimes good people tend to make mistakes if they think something is wrong, he was really worried about Fate-chan and his reaction during the last meeting was strange, that’s why I want you to investigate him, you have been learning form the best, so I know I can count on you”

“I see…I will do my best then… but is there really no other way?” the subordinate was really worried about the course of action, but Hayate could only make a sad smile “this is all we can do for now, Teana, as I told you there seems to not be any information about the book, but five magicians and Scaglietti are death, and now that it seems everyone is an enemy, we can only trust in the people we know.”

“What about the other three magicians?” Teana asked; she knew there was something strange about them. ”The TSAB gave me the reports of their last assignments, but nothing out of ordinary, the only real evidence against any of them is the phone call, the one that guarded the prison were Scaglietti was been held wasn’t even alive when Scaglietti died, so its hard to make a connection, anyway I will handle the magicians case, so I need you to concentrate on Dr. Isaac, gather his personal history, and investigate him to see if there is anything suspicious, time is everyone’s enemy, so if he is going to do something, he will do it soon.”

“Yes sir!”

Still with doubts, Teana departed to fulfill her duty. The next day Fate decided to go and talk about some things with Teana, and Nanoha decided to accompany her, it was then when they found out about Hayate been on charge of a “secret operation”. Nanoha knew what was it, and at first was happy because she thought she could get information from the case, but Hayate didn’t told anything to her or to Fate about the information she had, something Nanoha didn’t liked, Fate tried to mediate, but was in vain, eventually Hayate decided to ignore Nanoha, and so Nanoha did the same, and like this, the day of the park came.

8:00 AM TSAB

“Why don’t you rest a little Meister Hayate? In three days you have slept only nine hours, your body will not tolerate such pressure” Signum was on Hayate’s office, she was worried about her master “She is right Meister, is not good for your health…” Rein added also worried about Hayate. “I’m okay, really, all of you worry too much, even Vita yesterday, I’m okay, but it’s strange…they haven’t done anything…” Hayate have her sight lost on her desk.

“What do you mean?” asked Signum “I though that they would do anything, an attack or something, since we reinforced most of the facilities of the TSAB, another treating message, but nothing, nothing at all, it’s almost like if they were waiting for us to do something… and that’s what worries me…when we were told that Scaglietti was poisoned I felt like…like if they were waiting for the meeting to kill him”

Signum and Rein remained in silence for a few seconds “There is no point on trying to guess the enemy next move, the only thing we can do is be ready” Signum pointed “ I guess you are right, she will arriving soon right? I still can’t believe what I will ask her when she be here… Teana is also retuning today with a preliminary report, so lest hope the best…”

09:00 AM Takamachi House

“Fate-chan, wake up, its Sunday, we promise to take Vivio to the park” Nanoha Tried to wake Fate that resisted to wake up “Come on wake up…or I will have to use force…” suddenly Fate woke up faster than a lighting “I-I’m awake!” She knew what type of “force” use Nanoha.

“Oh? I thought you would want me to use the “force”, good morning” Nanoha kissed Fate “I will get the breakfast ready, and you wake Vivio up” and so Nanoha went to the kitchen to get breakfast and some other things ready.

Once they have breakfast, the three of them get on Fate’s car and drive until the park “How long is the road to the park?!” Asked an over exited Vivio “it’s almost an hour to get there, then will get on some of their attractions, have lunch there and expend all the day until the park close” Smiled Fate without taking her eyes form the road “remember to behave Vivio, the park will sure be full of people, and you will not want to get lost.” Pointed out Nanoha also with a smile “Yeah!” was the only answer of the child.

11:00 AM TSAB

The final member of Hayate’s special team finally arrived “Subaru Nakajima reporting to duty, sir!” Subaru as always full of energy saluted at Hayate and Rein, Signum was no longer in the office “Welcome Subaru, I know this sudden call must have surprised you but from this moment on you are assigned to a special team conformed of my knights, Teana and you”

“What about Nanoha-san and Fate-san?” Subaru asked in wonder “Listen…” Hayate make sure to explain the actual situation to Subaru, which as all the other before her, was in shock “so that’s basically the actual situation, Teana is returning today with a preliminary report, I have a different mission to assign you…”

“A different mission?” still unable to understand what Hayate just told her, asked what she thought it would help her to understand better the situation “Teana, under Fate instruction, has become a great enforcer, that’s why I need her investigation skills, the reason I called you is…” and Hayate passed to explain Subaru’s role.

“What…Hayate-san…I-I don’t get it…” Subaru tried to assimilate Hayate last words, her orders, but that didn’t make sense…how could she ask something like that? “I know is hard for you, but I believe in you, if we want some hope for Fate-chan, and for Nanoha-chan as well, this is the best we can do for now…”

15:00 PM SOSDAN Park

After having lunch around two hour ago, Vivio, who wasn’t tired form all the games she went, run trough the Park watching what she will ride next. “Vivio, don’t run or you will fall! There is plenty of time!” Nanoha warn her while following her.

“But Vivio sure is happy today, so many games she went and still wants more” laughed Fate happily next to Nanoha “Its because the three of us are together here, that’s why she is so happy about today” suddenly Vivio stopped in front of one of the disguised mascots from the park, with a really strange design, talked to it a bit and turned at her mamas “lest take a picture!” the kid yelled, it seems that the mascot was in charge of taking pictures to families that when to the park.

“All right little Vivio” the mascot said, it seems he already asked her name “Let’s take a picture with your sisters!” but the little kid looked at the strange “thing” “they are not my sisters, they are my mamas!” the mascot stood still in front of the kid, then turned at the pair of mamas, then turned again at the kid “O-Of course! Let’s take a beautiful Family picture! WAHO!” Both Nanoha and Fate couldn’t avoid the smirk on their faces at the creature reaction. The day went on.

16:00 PM TSAB

“It seems Hayate-san is working hard huh?” a little girl talked while been sited on Signum’s shoulder “You are certainly right Agito, but Meister Hayate worries doesn’t end with the enemy or the book, this hole situation with Takamachi and Testarossa is a big burden on her, Although Testarossa seems to understand, Takamachi case is different, and I fear my master wont be able to tolerate it”

“It really seems like a complicated situation…but that doesn’t apply just to your master, you also has been strange lately” Agito added looking at the knight “for a knight, his first thoughts are for his master, the rest doesn’t matter” Signum said those words as to try to convince herself.

18:00 PM SOSDAN Park

“Now let’s go there! Let’s go there!” Vivio pointed a roller coaster, due to Vivio’s height, there were many games she couldn’t get on, but the Park was full of games for all ages, so this roller coaster wasn’t too big, suddenly Nanoha got a phone call, it was Yūno.

“Fate-chan, you go with Vivio, I have to go to the bathroom, besides I need a little rest.” Fate nodded at Nanoha’s words “Are you sure you don’t want us to wait for you?” asked before Nanoha leaved “Yeah don’t worry about it, besides…” she pointed at little Vivio, who was pulling Fate’s arms while watching at the roller coaster “hahaha! Ok let’s go Vivio”

“Yūno, I was waiting your call, did you find anything?” Nanoha now away form Fate and Vivio answered the phone “Yes, it took me a while, there wasn't almost any book that talked about that Book of Origins, but I found one” Nanoha could feel her heart beating faster “Then? Does it say anything about its power?”

“The book seems to be old, and talk about it like if it were a legend, but for what I could translate, it seems like the Book of Origins have some kind of healing power, the paragraph is the next -…they didn’t feared, for they have a secret, a saint relic, in witch it’s cover said “book of origins”, and its beautiful magic was known to heal the Gods, and break the curses of their enemies…- it seems like and old legend, the story keeps going about wars and such, but even based on the fact they exaggerated the power of it, it seems it has healing power, does this help you?”

Nanoha fell in silence for a moment, the Book seems to have what she needed, and it talked about breaking curses and heals Gods, that made obvious its healing power, then why the TSAB didn’t allow them to use it? Why? “Nanoha?” Yūno once again called her from the phone, taking her of her thoughts “Ah! Yes, yes it does Yūno-kun, thanks a lot!”

They shared a couple more of words and then said goodbye, she still have doubts, thinking about what Yūno just told her, the Book seems to have the power to cure Fate, about what Fate told her four days ago, of her been on side of the TSAB if it were necessary, and about what Dr. Isaac told her… and then realized (that’s right! Dr. Isaac! He said he would keep searching for something to help Fate-chan!) she tried to contact him but his phone was off.

(Perhaps we can go to his Hospital, and there I can manage to ask him if there are any news on his search) with this on mind, Nanoha returned to her daughter and wife.

19:25 PM TSAB

Teana Lanster finally returned to the TSAB, on her way to Hayate’s office, she found Subaru, that seems to have waited for her to return, although Teana was happy, there was something more important that she needed to do right now, exchanging a few words with Subaru, continued to Hayate’s office.

“Teana Lanster is reporting, sir!” She announced “Teana, I expected you earlier, what happened?” Teana doubted a few seconds, then decided to pass Hayate the report “…Please look at this Hayate-san” Hayate took the report, she couldn’t believe her eyes.

“Are you serious?!” Hayate asked Teana, was really alarmed, but Teana could only look down “…There is no mistake…”

Hayate couldn’t believe that, but if it was true, then there was no other choice “Ok, Rein! Call Signum, and tell her to bring six soldiers with her! We most departure immediately, Teana, you are coming with us!” Teana could only nod at Hayate’s words.

19:30 PM Middle of the road

“Vivio seems really tired… and happy” smiled Nanoha while looking at Vivio sleep face on the car “It was a long day in were she didn’t sopped for a second, it’s natural for her to be tired.” Fate said while driving.

“Hey, Fate-chan, let’s stop by Dr. Isaac’s Hospital, it’s been a while since we talk to him, it would be nice to pay him a visit” Nanoha commented while looking at her window “okay it seems like a good idea, but Vivio is sleeping, we will have to wake her…” Fate said a little worried “Don’t worry it won’t be too long…” Nanoha finally convince her.

When they arrived at Dr. Isaac’s Hospital, there were people gathered outside the building, they managed to get down form the car and move forward, and then saw Hayate standing in front of the Hospital with her hands on her back, next to her was Teana.

“Is that Hayate-chan?” Nanoha murmured for herself, and like attracted by the murmur, Hayate sight catched them, her face was full of surprise, followed a strange look, then decided to move her eyes form them and keep looking at the Hospital.

At first Nanoha and Fate didn’t understand that gesture, but then, form inside the building, Signum, followed by six soldiers from the STAB, escorted Dr. Isaac with magic handcuffs on his hands.

The surprise came fast in Nanoha and Fate eyes, “Dr. Isaac Prowder” begin Hayate “You are under arrest under the charge of attempt of terrorism against the TSAB”

Then surpise became shock in both of the Aces, Dr Isaac noticed them, at first with surprise but then just made a sad smile “I’m sorry Harlaown-san, Takamachi-san, it seems I couldn’t be of any help”

Current mid-childa time………20:00 PM.

Isaac been arrested ? I wonder what he did to be under arrest.

Somehow I have a feeling why the evil mastermind don't try anything to steal the Book, he's waiting for someone to do the job for him.

The happy family scenes were nice.

Looking forward to the next chapter !

hmmm maybe he said all that stuff from his research so he could get nanoha to attach TSAB, since her goal would be to save fate.

But i think fate's decision must have surprised Dr. I and so he tried to convince nanoha that he would try to help them....

well, that's my theory.
update soon!

Spoiler:
Chapter 7

The Interrogation

“What’s going on?!” Nanoha asked that question in response of Hayate’s words, but she denied with her head “this is an official TSAB matter, please don’t interfere, Nanoha-chan.” Soon they took Dr. Isaac, and left the scene, leaving Nanoha full of doubts (…If the reason Isaac was arrested is the one I think, then…), Fate on the counterpart was starting to think that the terrorists -White Wolf- has something to do with this.

“I didn’t expect for them to be there…” Hayate had a shadow in her eyes “neither had I expected you would do something like this, Dr Isaac…” She looked at him, but his head was looking at the floor, not saying anything, Hayate resigned herself, soon they will interrogate him in the base and probably obtain the answers they desire.

First thing they did when they arrived at the base, was put Dr. Isaac in the interrogation room, were they kept him restrained, like if he was some kind of dangerous criminal.

“Signum, I want you to interrogate him, here you have all the data” Hayate handed some papers to Signum, and soon Signum entered the room, Hayate was on the other side, were he couldn’t see them, next to her was Teana, holding some papers on her hands.

In the room were only a table, two chairs, and the light, in one of the walls was the glass form were Hayate and Teana could see and hear everything “Dr. Prowder” began Signum sited on a chair “May I ask you, do you know why are you here?” She looked at him straight in his eyes “…” but Dr. Isaac seemed to don’t want to talk “According to the investigation of one of our members” she talked while she read the papers she had on her hands “you seems to have illegal information about location of bases of the TSAB in Mid-Childa, and blueprints of them, also you have keep the investigation on Enforcer Testarossa going on, despite you received a warning from the TSAB about leaving it isn’t that right?”

That was true, soon after Dr. Isaac departed from the TSAB he received a call form the TSAB warning him about the consequences of continuing with the investigation, before he called Nanoha that day, “…” but still she got no answer form Dr. Isaac “not only that, but it seems you also got information about the time when the soldiers do their shifts, tell me, what were you planning to do with that information?” and for the first time Dr. Isaac decided to talk “I was going to sneak into the facility that has the Book of Origin and take it…” his eyes showed only determination.

“…” on the other side of the glass, Teana was speechless about the sudden sincere answer of the doctor, “I would like to say that I don’t believe this, but form what I have talk with him, he would certainly have done it, Teana, tell me about his personal file…” was Hayate commentary, while asking Teana about his history.

Teana rapidly accommodated the papers while giving them to her “Yes! Apparently he got into the Prowder family in a really young age, three years old; his father adopted him in his home planet, soon…” but Hayate noticed that something was wrong “wait a minute, a couple of days ago I had the chance to chat with Dr. Isaac, and he clearly told me that was son of his parents, born in the Prowder’s family…”

Teana only denied with her head “apparently that the official story, but the truth is Dr. Isaac is adopted, whatever reasons they had to hide this disappear when their planet exploded, who his real parents were or where he was really born; this information I got it from some of his former friends from the university, apparently he told them to also keep it secret, but been a member of TSAB allowed me to know this, all his scholarship was made here in Mid-Childa. Apparently he was a little different when he was young…” made a pause Teana.

“What do you mean?” this time Hayate leaved the papers aside and looked at Teana “he was what we could call a “rich kid”, always making fun of other or speaking highly about his family fortune, and he didn’t seemed like a genius back then, but everything change when his parents died, it seems it made a full change of heart on him, making him focus more on his studies, leaving his trouble making personality vanished and it was then that he showed how smart he was, soon he got graduated, and started the project that now is a medical success and recently has been implemented in the TSAB.”

Hayate thought for some seconds while looking back at Dr. Isaac, the death of people that were important made a full change on him, she felled like she experienced something like that before, but it was not the time to be lost in reminiscences, the interrogation must go on.

“So…” Signum tired to put everything Dr. Isaac told her in order “what you are saying is that it wasn’t you that got all the data, but someone sends it to you? Do you really expect me to believe that?” she didn’t seem convinced “If you believe it or not is your problem Signum-san” she suddenly got surprised he knew her name, for he haven’t told him.

“I heard a lot form you from Harlaown-san” when she heard the answer decided to move on, this was an interrogation, those matters have no meaning “what is your connection to the –White Wolf-?” she directly asked if he was a terrorist “there is none, the first time I heard their names was when I was with your master” and looked at the glass, he knew they were there “but I think I misjudged all of you”

“What?” Signum didn’t understand the sudden commentary of Dr. Isaac “Harlaown-san told me great things form all of you the few times we talked, and even thought I new something was going to come due to Harlaown-san actual position and the phone call, I didn’t thought that you would abandon her”

Signum decided to ignore the comment, Teana felt bad because she thought he was right, that they were abandoning her, Hayate put a hand on her shoulder “why didn’t you presented this to the TSAB as soon as you got it?” Signum kept asking her question but it seems Dr. Isaac wanted to give other kind of answers “…she specially talked really good about you, Signum-san, how much she admire your strength and calmness…”

Signum tried to ignore him but his commentaries were disturbing her “You are being interrogated Dr. Prowder, I suggest you to weigh your words” but he didn’t stopped “She also told me about the Tome of the Night Sky incident, how you Wolkenritter risked everything in a war against the TSAB to save your master, how ironic, it seems friendship doesn’t mean anything to you”

“Enough!” Signum get up and slammed the table, she shouldn’t let his words get her, but deep inside, she thought there was some truth in his words, that’s why she was upset “Signum, that’s enough, I will continue with the interrogation” The voice was from Hayate trough a communicator.

Before leaving; she barely turn her head to Dr. Isaac “We are doing everything we can to save Testarossa…” But the doctor didn’t look at her “If that’s right, why am I the only one arrested?” words that filled the empty space of the room.

Signum leaved the room, and Hayate took her place, “I would appreciate if you could abstain from saying such things to my knight, Dr. Isaac” Hayate’s voice was different from Signum, “Can I ask you something?” the doctor looked at her trying to find what her question may be, and then “Why have you accepted the role of a puppet?” her question surprised him “I know you are a smart person, you are even considered a genius due to your program, that why I can’t understand why you let someone else define your steps…” she told him while looking straight into his eyes, looking for something, but Dr. Isaac just denied with his head “because even a genius has his limitations, I think I told you once before right? Some people can’t be saved, but that doesn’t change the fact that some people disserve to be saved, and for that is that I wanted the Book, even if I’m been used by some unknown enemy, if that is the key to save Harlaown-san, I will use it”

Hayate knew that was no way to liberate him, once the General find about what he said here, he probably will be locked until the end of the case “Why are you so obsessed with Fate-chan?” Hayate let her final question, not as an enemy, not as an agent, but as a friend “…” Isaac thought for some seconds, perhaps asking himself the same question “by now you must know about my personal history, and about the fact that I’m not a child form the Prowder’s, my father adopted me when I was three apparently, I don’t remember it… the first time I heard about this was when my parents died, it seems I was saved from a fire in a building, they didn’t know who saved me but that person leaved me in a orphanage, perhaps I see in Harlaown-san the figure of my savior, someone that risked his life to save someone condemned, perhaps I want to save the life of someone that can save people like I was saved, who knows…” and the silence finally filled the room.

After Hayate left the room, during a meeting with the General, and as she thought, she was commanded to send Isaac to a prison in Mid-Childa, until the case were closed, for Isaac not only had information about the different facilities of the TSAB and the time shifts, but also the precise location of the Book of Origins, something that was practically impossible, Hayate wasn’t even allowed to tell her Wolkenritter about the place were the book was, so she didn’t understand why dr. Isaac have that information.

In the meantime, after Nanoha and Fate arrived home, Nanoha carried Vivio to her room, while Fate decided to go and investigate what was happening, she told Nanoha not to wait for her, but Nanoha waited, she needed to know what was happening, even trough she had an idea of what was going on. It was late at night when Fate finally arrived.

“I told you not to wait” Fate slightly smiled at seen Nanoha still up “welcome home; did you manage to find anything?” Nanoha welcomed her and looked at her worried “Hayate didn’t give me the details but it seems Dr. Isaac is going to be in prison for a season” Nanoha felt her fears became truth, she knew the only reason to lock Isaac so fast was due to something related to the Book of Origins, then she remembered the words form Hayate when she arrested Dr. Isaac, attempt of terrorism, if that was right, then Dr. Isaac couldn’t find something to prevent Fate disease, but at the same time if he was going to go do something to the TSAB, he had to know the location of the book.

“Nanoha” Fate voice finally got her out of her thoughts, “wh-what?” Nanoha tried the best she could to answer “I said there is no point on keep thinking about this; let's go to sleep and think something tomorrow, okay?” Nanoha nodded with the head, there was no point of thinking right now, tomorrow she will think on something.

But in the shadows, someone thought this whole situation was funny –this is extremely funny Hayate! And I thought you would present me a challenge? Hahaha! Well, is not like if you had any other choices than the ones I give you,Hm? what are you doing? eh! that really is an action of a bad player you knew that Hayate? but soon enough the stage will be ready, most of the pieces are in the right place, once my preparation be completed, the fireworks will annunciate the beginning, so, my beautiful white queen, what are you going to do? Hahahaha!- a dark hand played with a chess white queen on its hand.

Isaac is more mysterious than ever, now, and his origins makes him a suspicious character.

And the real mastermind seems ready to launch his real actions, and I somehow feels that Nanoha will be involveed in his next operation.

Looking forward to the next chapter.

ok sorry for the delay, here is chapter 8, no comments about it, "enjoy" and well... just stay with me okay XD

Spoiler:
Chapter 8

Sudden Change

Isaac was send to a medium security prison in Mid-Childa, located at the east of the central base, even if the information he had was important, he wasn’t considered a threat, that what they decided.

Nanoha and Fate tried several times to talk to Isaac, but the TSAB kept rejecting their request, so Fate, using the privileges she managed to retain as an Enforcer, decided to start an parallel investigation, mostly based on finding those that were behind Dr. Isaac, while on her side, Hayate decided to do the same using Teana, unknowing of Fate’s investigation.

“Meister Hayate” said Signum while she entered Hayate’s Office “it has been four days since Dr. Isaac arrest, the enemy can attack anytime, I suggest you to rest a little more” she was worried about Hayate’s lack of sleep “I already told you Signum, I’m okay… do you have any reports from Subaru’s team?”

“Everything seems to be normal…there has been no anomalies” was the response from the knight “if they are expecting something, they will start form there, tell her to report any changes.” Was Hayate words to her knight, she was worried about the White Wolf, how much would they wait? With Isaac under arrest, they would probably act on their own, or go after Nanoha, based on the fact that Isaac had the location of the Book of Origins, they would attack anytime, but the book was still okay, so Hayate increase the security in the base that held the Book, which was located North to their position, Base 78, if the enemy knew the book was there, there was no need to keep hiding it.

“I have increased our security, even though I still don’t get what they wanted with Dr. Isaac, it was obvious we would focus on him based on what he knew, but send him our bases information… almost seems meaningless, what were they thinking?” Hayate tried to see through the enemy plan, as soon as they captured dr. Isaac, they restructured the time shifts on all bases. ”There was also the possibility that they got in contact with Nanoha-chan trying to use her, but no such contact has been made, so we can guess next time they will come”

“Even if they come, we can still manage things, as you said Meister Hayate, their actions seems meaningless, only accomplishing that we reinforce our security, the problem is the fact that there can be members of the TSAB helping them, inside there hasn’t been anything strange, no strange movements of information, no strange change of personal, nothing, and the dead magicians’ case is still ongoing, as far as we know, they didn’t made anything strange until the TSAB found them dead” Signum pointed at the reports

“So it seems, so basically we will not know we are under attack until the attack be already upon us?” was Vita comment, she seemed frustrated “anyway, with the troops we got, there shouldn’t be any problem, even if they attack us right now, we still be able to defend ourselves, for now, let’s see what happen” said Hayate, even through she didn’t liked the idea, she wanted them to attack, it was impossible to fight against a ghost, at least if they attacked, they can know who or what they use, and use that to investigate them, but the fact that they still haven’t move worried her.

Meanwhile in the Takamachi house, even trough Dr. Isaac incident, everything kept normal, or at least to Vivio, Nanoha didn’t liked the fact that Fate investigated for the TSAB, that abandoned her, but if she find anything about them, the case would be resolved faster, with Dr. Isaac arrest, the only thing she could count now was the Book, and what Yūno told her about the possible power of it.

“Hey, Nanoha-mama…” Vivio looked at her mother “Why is Fate-mama going to work? Wasn’t she staying in home for a while?” the question surprised her mother “Ah…well… that’s because Fate-mama was suddenly called, but she will not go away don’t worry, soon she will finish and be back home” was the only response her mother could give her, she also have doubts, but that wasn’t the time to take them out “Will you help me to prepare dinner? Fate-Mama probably will come home hungry” she asked Vivio while smiling “Yes!” was her response and both departed to the kitchen.

A few hour later Fate returned “Nanoha, Vivio, I’m home!” she yelled “welcome back” said Nanoha smiling “welcome Fate-mama!” Vivio said also smiling both in the kitchen “I’m sorry for coming back so late, did you finish cooking or need some help?” Fate hurried to the kitchen trying to help “no, unfortunately Vivio gave me all the help I needed right?” Nanoha look at the little one “yeah!” was the kid response full of pride

“Why don’t you set the table? The dinner is almost ready” said Nanoha at looking Fate’s gloomy face about the leave the kitchen “Ah…Yes! I will!” was Fate response full of life again “I will help!” finished Vivio with a big smile.

The three of them have a normal dinner, laughing, enjoying their time together, Vivio always take her change to ask about going somewhere, but unfortunately Fate’s actual investigation didn’t give her time, so she had to say no, even in front of Vivio’s puppy eyes. Nanoha spend the night making jokes with double meaning, making Vivio tilt her head in wonder, and Fate blush about them, while Nanoha laughed really hard about it, causing Fate to blush even harder.

Once Vivio went to sleep, Nanoha finally decided to talk to Fate, if she had find anything about who or whose were behind Dr. Isaac, manipulating him “Fate-chan…Did you find anything?” Fate, turned at her, they were getting ready for bed “no… I manage to get in contact with Teana, she said as long as I don’t ask anything about what they got, or whom are in Hayate’s team, she is willing to share information in secret, for what I heard from her Dr. Isaac was arrested for “possession of illegal documents” although she didn’t give me detail about them.” Fate began while taking out her shirt

“Based on Dr. Isaac arrest and Hayate “attempt of terrorism” I think is pretty obvious, besides thanks to Teana now we know that there are other members besides the Wolkenritter in Hayate’s team, otherwise there is no reason for “hiding its members”” Nanoha smiled, She knew that Teana wanted them to know that “that bay be true, but remember Nanoha, what I’m investigation is whose is manipulating Dr. Isaac, we are not facing Hayate’s team.” Fate said with a serious expression.

“Don’t worry, don’t worry, I know, then, She told you something else?” Nanoha smiled and pointed her to keep going, Fate look at her then sighed “it seems Dr. Isaac was send to a prison to the east, once again she didn’t give me anything concrete” Fate made a gesture that said that that was all “I see” Nanoha then started to thought which base would that be, there wasn’t many to the east of the central base, from the beginning Mid-childa was full of prisons, to the east of the central base there should be two maximum, a low security prison and a medium one, due to Dr. Isaac case, if he was on a eastern prison, the medium security was the most probably.

“Anyway” Fate voice toke her out of her thoughts “I’m telling you this because I trust you okay? Don’t do anything dangerous, remember what we talk okay?” Fate look at her serious once again “don’t worry I’m not going to do anything (yet)” with that Nanoha made her a gesture to accompany her on the bed, which made Fate blush a little.

On the next day, after leaving Vivio at school, Nanoha returned home after doing some shopping, Fate was gone when Nanoha wake up, probably continuing her investigation, and like she was suspended, there wasn’t many things she could do, and besides she didn’t wanted to do other thinks right now, so she went home. After cleaning a little she sitted on the living room’s couch.

(Is it really okay just to stay here and do nothing? I can’t stop thinking about the Book, with Dr. Isaac arrest there is no other way, and can we make it before anything bad happen? Can we capture this terrorist before anything happen to Fate-chan?) With these thoughts, Nanoha allow herself to take a nap on the couch.

But suddenly, she was woke up abruptly by a video call in front of her “Hayate-chan...?” in her sleep she managed to recognize Hayate, but something was wrong with her face, she was pale and her eyes filled with a unknown fear “Nanoha-chan!! Nanoha-chan!!” the screams of the woman on the video call made her fully awake.

“Hayate-chan? Calm down, what happened?” Nanoha felt something was wrong, something bad was happening “Nanoha-chan!! You have to come immediately to the Base!! Fate-chan…Fate-chan collapsed!!” Nanoha opened her eyes wide “wha-what are you talking about?” is seems she didn’t understand Hayate’s words “Shamal has been trying to wake her, but she doesn’t know what’s happening please!! Dr. Isaac will come soon!! I will send someone for Vivio please come here!!”

Nanoha looked at the hour, it was certainly time to go pick up Vivio, she stand up, she was a little confused on what was happening, but managed to get to the car and drive to the STAB.

She arrived at the exact time to see Dr. Isaac enter the Base escorted by Signum and a couple of soldiers “Takamachi” Signum saw her, even through it was evident, concern was also in Signum’s eyes “Takamachi-san?” Dr. Isaac turn his head but didn’t stopped, Nanoha hurry herself to catch them and follow them, soon they arrived to the infirmary.

In there she saw Shamal running from side to side gathering stuffs, a few medical bags on Fate’s arm “wha-What’s happening?!” It seem Nanoha finally reacted after seeing Fate, like if she were sleeping on the bead, but Nanoha felt something was wrong.

“I-I don’t know…she care early in the morning and everything was fine, she spend most of the day here and when she was about to leave she… she suddenly said her head hurts, then soon after collapsed” Shamal explained while no stopping “Let me take a look” Soon Dr. Isaac came close to her, take her pulse, touch her throat, watched her mouth.

Then the open the shelf in were the medicines were kept, irritation could be seen in his eyes, finally took a bottle, and a needle, and injected it to Fate “What was that?” Nanoha asked while grabbing Dr. Isaac shoulder “It will help keep her pulse, we don’t have time, I can’t do anything here, and my hospital isn’t far! We have to transport her immediately! Dr. Shamal help get the gurney ready!” Shamal nodded immediately and help him get everything ready.

Then Nanoha noticed that Hayate was there, but a strange face like she would have saw something she didn’t wanted to see was on her face “Takamachi-san!” Dr. Isaac yelled at her, while taking her hand and putting in Fate’s “I need you to talk to her! Tell her anything I just need you to talk to her while we take her to one of the STAB ambulances!” without waiting for her answer they went outside with the gurney.

The TSAB held ambulances ready in case what they had to transfer someone that couldn’t be heal there, or had to be operated.

“Fate…chan?” those were the words that came again and again form her mouth, perhaps for don’t understanding what was happening, or perhaps for don’t wanting to understand it.

They arrived to Dr. Isaac hospital in no time, he made explicit indications to the driver to stop at nothing, but with the ambulance sound going, the few cars that they encounter, move to don’t be in the way. As soon they arrived to the Hospital a team was waiting for them, Dr. Isaac call them from the ambulance.

“Take her to the room one hundred eight of intensive care! Is the closest!” they nodded and take the gurney, running trough the hallway, Nanoha saw Vivo, at first she was happy, but her eyes change at seeing who was on the bed “Nanoha-mama? What is Fate-mama doing?”

Soon they arrived to the room, were Dr. Isaac asked Nanoha and the other, expect Shamal and his medical team to wait outside, Nanoha waited with her daughter in silence, even through Vivio asked several times what was going on, Nanoha’s only response was “everything is going to be fine…”, then the little kid turned to Hayate that was also there, but she only smiled at her, a fake smile.

How long it was? Nanoha couldn’t tell, thirty minutes, forty? It was when Dr. Isaac when out, his team also went out, his eyes were unreadable “only the family can enter, she is still stable, so she may heard your voices, if you want to say farewell, please enter…” his head was down, like apologizing, “what are you talking about?!” the first voice was from Hayate that jumped over Isaac grabbing him from his neck, but his eyes didn’t look at her.

“You-you are a genius!! What are you talking about?!!” Hayate was overage; Shamal was trying to calm her down, what was Hayate feeling? Remorse? Nanoha didn’t have time to think that.

“Nanoha-mama? What did the doctor said?” Vivio asked her mother, with certain alarm in her voice “Vivio… lets see Fate-mama”

Nanoha toke Vivio and entered the room, empty almost, only a nurse was beside the bed, and Fate was sleeping.

------Beep------Beep------Beep-----

“Fate-mama, wake up, we have to go home” Little Vivio came close to the bed, touching her shoulder, “Hey, Fate-mama, we have to go home”, Nanoha came from behind, and embrace her “don’t worry Vivio, everything is going to be fine”

------Beep------Beep------Beep-----

“Because Fate-mama promised Nanoha-mama that they will always be together, and Fate-mama has never lied to Nanoha-mama”

------Beep------Beep------Beep-----

“She will soon wake up, and we will go home, that’s why everything will be alright, because Nanoha-mama believes in Fate-mama”

------Beep------Beep------Beep-----

“Because she promised to be at Nanoha-mama’s side, always…isn’t that right Fate-chan?”

------Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep------

Nanoha didn’t saw Isaac enter the run running, nor she saw Hayate crying outside either, she didn’t saw the nurse put a hand on Isaac shoulder and moving her head, nor she saw the tears in her daughter, what was he doing? What was the nurse doing? Why was crying Vivio? Everything s engulfed by a silence and a single question “Fate-chan?”

I have the feeling you have something up your sleeve, isn't it ?

I also have the feeling the evil mastermind waited for that to push Nanoha to do what he want her to do.

Looking forward to the next chapter.

Chapter 9

Requiem for a Lost Dream

How important is a person? One can guess it from the number of people crying at his/her funeral, and in Fate T. Harlaown’s funeral, many people cry.

Soon after what happen to Fate, the TSAB contacted her mother and brother, while Nanoha contacted Erio and Caro. Apparently Lindy and Chrono had a private discussion with the TSAB and Hayate, who was on charge of the investigation, or at least that’s what Nanoha heard.

The day of the funeral arrived, most of the people there was dressed in black, Nanoha hold Vivio who was already crying, next to them was Hayate, also crying while saying in a murmur “I’m sorry…I’m so sorry…”, Nanoha move her sight to the rest of the people there, Teana was Crying in Subaru’s shoulder, Subaru hold her but didn’t say anything, only once she look at Nanoha, but she could read nothing from her eyes, Erio hided his face behind his hand, as to cover the tears that fall from him.

Even the Sky seemed to be crying, for the rain never stopped, when this thought came to Nanoha, she saw Signum, which once in a while was offered an umbrella, but always rejected it; perhaps she wanted the rain to take something away, thought Nanoha.

The TSAB mounted some kind of cover over Fate’s grave, so the rain wouldn’t wet it, for the coffin wasn’t yet there, and that was the reason Lindy was alone with Amy there, Chrono was in charge of carry the coffin.

And then it appears; Chrono and Yūno where in the front part carrying it, while some soldiers carried from behind. Many move their sights away form it, as to not acknowledge what was in front of them, while other, like Signum, clenches their fist.

Hayate once in a while watched Signum in concern, but her crying eyes were more often directed at Nanoha, for the “Ace of aces” hasn’t shed a single tear all that time.

The ceremony was long, some words form a priest and all the friends and family of Fate threw a rose along with some farewell words, Chrono decided to be part of the burial team, he had an empty look, like if it wasn’t her sister in the coffin.

“Please don’t do that! Fate-mama won’t be able to leave it!” The shouts of a little girl could be heard, but Nanoha hold her “Nanoha-mama! Stop them! Please stop them!” but Nanoha could only embrace her, no words could be directed at the child.

Soon everyone started to leave; the only remnants were Nanoha, Vivio, Hayate, Lindy, Amy and Chrono. After Lindy talked a little with Nanoha and embrace her, she along with Chrono and Amy leaved. Hayate asked Shamal and the rest to leave first, taking Signum with them.

“Nanoha-chan…let me take you home okay?” Hayate asked Nanoha, not able to look at her directly.

Nanoha nodded at her request, and after looking back once, they leaved the place.

No words were spoken on the way between Nanoha and Hayate, Vivio fall sleep soon after she sited on Hayate’s car.

“Nanoha-chan…I…do you mind if Vivio-chan come to sleep tonight at home? I…I was thinking it would be the best…” Hayate finally looked at Nanoha at the eyes, what did Nanoha saw in her eyes? She thought for some moments and agreed with her.

“…Nanoha-chan…I…I didn’t wanted this…I thought we could resolve this fast…that’s why…I’m sorry…” were Hayate final words, but no answer to that thought was herd form Nanoha, as she get out the car.

She watched them leave, and then entered the house.

As soon as she entered, she felt the atmosphere different, a silence different to others took over the house, a silence of something missing, she looked at the living room, flashbacks of people playing with a kid, laughs, joy, happiness… she moved to the kitchen, she decided to prepare a sandwich or something, flashbacks again of the same people preparing dinners, smiling at each other, laughing at the kid’s mistakes.

After she finished her sandwich, she went to her room; once she opened the door, it took her a while to enter, why was that room so different today? Everything was in the same place as the rest of the days, yet something was different, she opened one of the drawers and took a shirt, a familiar scent came form it, and something started to fall from her cheeks.

“It wasn’t supposed to be like this…why…” the tears couldn’t be stopped “Why couldn’t you remain at my side…” she fell on the bed, unable to stop the falling tears, the pain, that overcome her “…Fate-chan…”

3:00 am; Nanoha wake up, she felt really cold, so her first thought was to hold the body that usually was next to her to warm up, but couldn’t find her “Huh? Where is she?” Nanoha’s head hurt a little bit, but she get up and first went to Vivio’s room, that also was empty “Hmm, they probably are at the kitchen” so she parted in direction of it.

When she finally arrived at the kitchen and saw it empty, she remembered what happen trough the day, and why the house was so empty, tears started to fall again –now you are ratter a hypocrite- a voice spoke to her “Who is there?!” Nanoha felt that the voice was familiar, but couldn’t recognize from who –why are you doing this? Crying and all I mean, is not like you have done anything to prevent this- the voice was harsh with the tone “Where are you?! Show yourself!” –I’m watching something in the TV, want to join me? - The voice jerked at her.

When Nanoha arrived at the living room, the TV was on “I want us to be friends” was that herself younger? –oh! Fate-chan was really cute back then; those sad crimson eyes captivated you right? - The voice apparently had the remote control, because the channel change and another part of Nanoha’s past appeared “I would like to accept your friendship, but I don’t know how to be friends, so if you could tell me” a younger fate asked “make friends is a simple thing, you just have to call them by the name” that was the first time Fate said her name, the day they become friends.

The channel changed again “An ally huh?!” The first battle against Vita appeared “I’m her friend” Nanoha tried to find the voice but didn’t seem to be anywhere, and she still couldn’t remember whose voice was.

-Let’s move a little forward, you remember this day right? - The channel changed again, and this time showed a hospital and her sited on a bed, with a wheelchair next to her “No…not this day…” Nanoha tried harder to find the remote control –why not? Wasn’t this one of your happiest days? The day that changed everything? - It was the day that Nanoha didn’t wanted to attend rehab, after she woke up from her accident.

“Nanoha, the nurse told me you don’t want to do you rehab today?” Fate entered the room “Ah Fate-chan, I was thinking about Hayate-chan and how strong she was, I didn’t thought having legs that won’t works would be this hard, but…the rehab is harder every day and I stared to believe that it ill be impossible to me” Nanoha said while looking at the wheelchair.

“That’s not true! You can overcome this; you are the strongest person I know that’s why…” Fate put her had on Nanoha’s shoulder and tried to finish her words but was interrupted “you wouldn’t understand it!!” Nanoha hard tone made Fate move her hand away “I’m sorry…it’s just that…it’s really hard, so I thought it would be okay just to stay like this…even if I cant fly, because…” but this time Nanoha was interrupted when Fate slap her face.

“Don’t ever say that again! You love the sky more than anything! You can’t give up, because the Nanoha I know wouldn’t give up! The person that saved me wouldn’t give up!” then Fate kneel in front of her and took her hands “I know this is hard, but you can overcome it, and if you cant do it alone, I can be here for you, if you let me hold your hand like before, we can fix what is wrong, because we are friends, because you are my first friend, and because I wont let you abandon what you love”

-those words really get to you back then huh? What was once friendship changed into something else; stronger, because Fate-chan was there for you, because she wasn’t going to abandon you, even at the risk of herself leaving her dreams behind, and that, even through you knew it was wrong, made you happy - Nanoha was sited on the ground, crying, because those were happy memories from the past, but now those memories only remained her that that person was no longer with her “Why are you doing this?!” she asked at the voice among tears –because you pretend that nothing that happened this weeks is your fault, and because you aren’t taking responsibility on Fate-chan’s death, because is like this-

Then the place changed, and Nanoha was sit on the ground fully armored in Raising Heart barrier jacket, and in front of her she saw Fate, and she was happy, but soon find that she couldn’t move or talk, and behind Fate she saw several sticks coming their direction, But Fate didn’t move, she was just smiling down at her –why don’t you warn her? She may die if those sticks stroke her- Nanoha desperately tried to talk or move, but nothing was allowed; there was no bind magic, but still couldn’t move, then…

Nanoha saw how the sticks pierced though Fate’s body, making her kneel in front of her, no longer could she see those crimson eyes “NO!!” Nanoha once again regain her freedom, and was back at the house, with her normal clothes back on.

“Where are you!!” this time Nanoha was angrier than ever, and desperately look for the voice –there is no need to yell, I’m right here…- Nanoha felt the voice come from behind her and turn around then “Wha-” She couldn’t believe her eyes, in front of her was another Nanoha, but this one was in full barrier jacket.

“You seems surprised…” the white armored Nanoha came closer and put her hand in Nanoha’s face “What…who…” but before Nanoha could finish or make her question, the white armored Nanoha move the hand in the cheek and her other hand to Nanoha’s neck and started to strangle her, Nanoha at first didn’t understand what was happening, but rapidly tried to remove those hands from her neck.

“Why?! Why didn’t you save her?!” the white armored Nanoha yelled “I have the power to save her, but you did nothing! Even though I love her you did nothing!” Nanoha tired to remove those hands, but the words coming from the white armored Nanoha were straight to her heart “I was so happy with her at my side, yet you did nothing to save her! How could you?!” at this point Nanoha stopped fighting back, just wanting to drawn in those words “…Fate…Chan…” her final words were directed at the person she loved the most “…oha! Nanoha!” a voice came from the distance, and the world was filled with light.

Sad chapter, poor Vivio, it's always hard to lose a parent.

Nanoha's reaction during the funerals, while she seems to be insensitive, is correct (I was like her at my father's funeral years ago); she's so sad she can't even cry and has to be strong for her daughter. Poor Nanoha, I feel so sorry for her.

I wonder what happened in the last part, is Nanoha caught in a nightmare, or is it something else (or someone) at work that want to torment her ?

Looking forward to the next chapter !

alright thanks to sigurd and langrisser for the comment, here is chapter 10! wow 10 weeks already doing this? i cant belive it, lol.

Spoiler:
Chapter 10

Moment of Conflict: Part 1

“…oha! Nanoha!” Nanoha suddenly felt someone grabbing her shoulders “Ah!” she woke up abruptly, tears allover her cheeks, feeling disoriented “Nanoha, is okay, is me” the hands grabbing her shoulder went to her face, forcing her to look at that person “Fate…chan?” she couldn’t believe her eyes “Fate-chan!” she hugged her as tight as she could “Fate-chan…you were…you were…”

Fate couldn’t understand what was happening, but she accepted the hug since she felt something was wrong with Nanoha “I don’t know what was it, but it was just a dream, is okay now.”

Nanoha after a few minutes released Fate, then look around her, still feeling a little disoriented, she was on the couch on the living room, it seems she was sleeping there “When I came back I saw you crying in your sleep, so I decided to wake you up, where you having some nightmare?”

“A…nightmare?” Nanoha thought, now a little more calm “Fate-chan…didn’t you fainted in the TSAB?” she asked, still unsure “Fainted? In the TSAB? What are you talking about?” Fate then put her hand in Nanoha’s forehead “it seems you have a little fever, perhaps that caused that nightmare, everything is okay now, it was just a dream” but Nanoha once again hugged Fate “It wasn’t” Fate knew what kind of nightmare she had “Everything will be fine…everyone will be here…” then once again Nanoha release her “why don’t you take a shower? That way you will feel better, I will go pick up Vivio, and on the way home we will pass by some pharmacy in case the fever gets worse, I will cook tonight so don’t worry about anything understood?” Fate smiled at her to assure her that everything was fine.

“….okay” was Nanoha’s weak response, she was still a little lost by the dream, Fate prepared the bath, then leaved to pick up Vivio, so Nanoha was left alone in the house “…” Nanoha was deep in thought about what happened, that was the scariest dream she ever had, and was one of those that people remember, so all the images were still on her mind “…it can’t end like that…” Nanoha look at her own hand in the water “it will not end like that” she clenched her fist

“Raising Heart” she call her device “what is it my master?” the device asked “are they still there?” she asked her device “yes, the eight magicians that have been monitoring your moves since a couple of days ago are still there.” The device answered, a few days ago, while Nanoha was buying some stuff for the house, Raising Heart warn her that some people was following her “I see.” But Nanoha have no idea if they were allies or enemies, so as long as they didn’t get to much closer to her or her family she decided to let them be “Raising Heart, I have clear my mind of any doubts, and I will follow your advise, I will do what I want to do, and I won’t forget what I chose for myself” Nanoha with determination said to her device “all right, my master”

Meanwhile in the TSAB

“Meister Hayate” Signum made a habit to pass through Hayate’s office every day, even if she wasn’t called “Signum? You know is not necessary that you come here everyday, I’m not that weak you know” Signum smiled, but denied with her head “I know, but this is not about being weak or strong, master” Hayate sighed at her comment “I know, anyway anything new?” she asked Signum, since she was there perhaps something happened.

“No, I have checked Dr. Prouder cell through the monitors, but he hasn’t done anything suspicious, Subaru also informed that everything proceed normally, Teana keep investigating, there is something about her…” but before Signum could continue Hayate stop her “I know, she is sharing information with Fate-chan right?” Signum was really surprised “she isn’t good pretending, I don’t care, Fate-chan is the best Enforcer, even so I feel bad to having her investigating, almost make us look like we were using her…If Nanoha-chan would now she would hate us even more…” she said with a sad face.

“Testarossa is trying to finish this, if we can capture this –White Wolf- group, we can formally ask the use of the book on her sake” Signum said while looking at some papers “but they haven’t done anything, we have investigated the death magicians but nothing seemed out of order, I’m beginning to think we chose the wrong side, perhaps if we have stood more for Nanoha-chan…” but this time Signum stopped her “I understand Takamachi’s feeling, but the TSAB’s decision of leaving her out of this was correct, we mustn’t fall in despair, and the TSAB wont tolerate betray, you can’t think like that master.”

“I know” Hayate put her back against her chair “what will happen, everyday that pass, Fate-chan have less time, will they wait for our move?” Hayate let herself be lost in thoughts. Signum leaved Hayate’s office “How is she?” Agito who waited outside asked “Not different from other days, this is a big burden to my master, but is a knight’s duty to don’t let his master fall in despair.” Singum walked with Agito in her shoulder “but in the worst case, you all will end fighting not only the enemy, but also that White Devil right?” Agito commented worried about the situation “I won’t allow that, my master is strong, but a fight against Takamachi in these conditions is impossible for her, anyway all we can do for now is wait for our enemy move, and be ready for it”

After Fate returned, she and Vivio prepared dinner, since this time Fate rejected Nanoha that wanted to help, telling her to rest, they have dinner, just like any other day, Vivio commenting on how wonderful school was, Fate smiling at her, Nanoha understood that this was what she wanted to protect, this moment, and that she will do anything to protect it.

Later that night, when Vivio fall sleep, Nanoha was still a little weird for what happened, so Fate though in making something special for her, so she decided to advance that night, but when she was about to unbutton Nanoha’s shirt, Nanoha’s hand stopped her “Not tonight” she said, but she didn’t let her hand go “Just let me hold you like this” Fate nodded in the silence of their room, embracing Nanoha from behind and holding hands. The day ended.

“The stage is set, is time to make my move, Aces and TSAB, the show must begin! Hahaha!”

9:00 AM Takamachi House

Nanoha woke up, Fate was already gone, probably investigating, she thought, and the day started normally, she and Vivio have breakfast, and Vivio’s friends came to pick her up, Nanoha wave them with a smile and decided to start the day.

10:00 AM TSAB

Hayate was working on some documents in her PC, when it suddenly shut down, and no matter what she tried it didn’t turn on, so she decided to call someone to look at it “Huh? The lines are death?” she started to get worried, so she went outside her office to try to see what was going on, then suddenly…

“!!!” and explosion near by almost toke her out of balance “What?!” she hold on the wall so not to fall, and she saw Signum running in her direction “Signum! What’s going on?!” Signum stay next to her “We still don’t know it seems like an explosion in the basement but…” Signum couldn’t finish her sentence and another explosion follow it, Signum make sure nothing happen to her master “Lieutenant Hayate!” a solider was also holding in the wall “The communication system as been jammed! We can’t send or receive any transitions form the other soldiers or bases!”

“What?! How did that…” but this time they heard explosion on the distance “we are under attack…but who did they managed to brake our firewall?” but the soldier denied with his head “we still don’t know, from the sound of the explosions, most are coming from the north and east bases” Hayate started then to think “So they finally came from the book huh?! Signum, I want you to take Zafira and Shamal and go north to the Base 78! If you encounter enemy forces prevent them from get their hands on the Book of Origins! Once I organize things here I will follow you with Vita!” Signum nodded at her words and went to find the other Wolkenritter.

“Teana is investigating so we can’t contact her, and Subaru is the same case, damn! This is happening faster than I expected, I didn’t predict they would toke our systems down!” Hayate joined the soldiers to get things on order in the base, which was still confused after the surprise attack.

10:30 AM Takamachi’s House

Nanoha heard the explosions but wasn’t sure of what was going on “Raising Heart! Can you pick up any communications?” but the devide denied her words “impossible, there is a strong jamming in the area that don’t allow communications” even though Nanoha knew this was a terrorist attack, this was also the best chance to get the book “we must get the Book of Origins before they do, and there is only one person that knows were is it!” Nanoha started to get ready “Master, what is your command for the magicians outside?” Nanoha thought a little “If they try to stop us, we will face them, however they are”

Nanoha then set up with Raising Heart and got out of the house and fly up, if they were going to battle, she didn’t wanted to destroy the house.

Soon after she flied up, seven soldiers followed her “Captain Takamachi! We are under TSAB orders to not to allow you leave this place, please deliver your device to us!” Nanoha look at them, they were indeed soldiers from the TSAB, she counted seven of them, one was missing “The TSAB is under attack, this is not the time to…” but she was interrupted by the soldier “That’s precisely why we can’t allow you to leave like this, our orders were that if something strange happen, you must deliver first your device, then communicate with the base” she knew they weren’t going to let her go, and the communications with the base were jammed “This will leave us to nowhere (Raising Heart, lock on them).“

“I’m sorry for this” the soldier apologized “So do I…” Then Nanoha aimed at them “Captain Takamachi what are you...” but Nanoha didn’t allow him to finish “DIVINE SHOOTER!” Nanoha used a variation of the Divine Buster, shooting seven beams in high speed controlled by her, the soldiers tried to avoid them, but weren’t able to do so since she controlled the beams in every direction they went, even if the beams weren’t as strong as the Divine Buster, were strong enough to defeat the magicians.

“master, warning, there is still one more enemy left” Raising Heart was right, last night there were eight magicians watching her, so there was still one more, just when Nanoha was thinking this, a blue road filled the air in every direction “I though it was you…Subaru.” In front of Nanoha was Subaru Nakajima.

11:45: Eastern Prison

There were a lot of people running in the prison, Dr Isaac could only hear the voices screaming and commanding, something big was going on, then he heard was appears to be a fight, after a few moments he saw a shadow in front of his door “Stay away form the door” said the voice, and he did so only to see the door been destroyed “hurry up there isn’t much time” the voice said, and he couldn’t believe who was in front of him, but didn’t have time to think, they were escaping, all his doubts would be cleared later.

Thanks to the confusion running in the prison, Isaac and his savior managed to get out “Okay from here we most go to…” but Isaac stopped his savior “Before anything I want to know what you are planning… Why did you come and take me out?” the savior could only looked at him.

The conflict on the TSAB had begun.

So, it was a dream, I'm glad Fate's alive, and I see that this nightmare makes Nanoha took her decision and oppose the TSAB for Fate's sake.

Now I'll wonder how she'll fare against Subaru, and who's doctor Isaac "savior".

Looking forward to the next chapter !

okay here is chapter 11! Subaru Vs Nanoha who will win XD

Spoiler:
Chapter 11

Moment of Conflict Part 2


10:30 AM TSAB Central Base

Hayate managed to organize several groups in the base “Listen! Our first priority is taking care of those that were wounded by the attacks, I wan two teams to go and secure the areas of the explosion! Another team will go to the roof and check Mid-Childa’s actual situation, and a third team will work on the restoration of our systems, is that clear?!” Hayate spoke in a firm tone.

“Sir, yes sir!” all soldiers answered loudly “All teams, be careful! We don’t know how many enemies are attacking us, if you find yourselves in a disadvantage situation send a member to inform any nearby team and wait for their assistance! Also if any team encounters Second Lieutenant Vita send her to me immediately! I will be with the system restoration team! That’s all!” and with that all the teams spread along the base.

“I’m worried about Signum and the others” Rein who was next to Hayate expressed her concern “Don’t worry, Signum in unison with Agito is really strong, I’m sure she will protect everyone, we must focus in here so we can help them later” Hayate smiled at her, but at the same time send a pray to her knights (please be face, my knights).

10:50 Mid-Childa’s Sky

“Nanoha-san…” Subaru was in front of her, the mission Hayate assigned to her was to observe Nanoha and act if any suspicious behavior appear on her, inform the base if such behavior appeared and ask Nanoha to give away her device, if she refused, confront her until reinforcements arrive. “Can I was you something Nanoha-san…?” but things were different, not only all communications were jammed, making impossible to call reinforcements, but her team was defeated in less than 15 minutes, the explosions on the bases would make impossible any reinforcements, so she had to stop Nanoha alone. “If Tea was in the same situation, I probably would do the same thing as you now, in that case, what would you do?”

“…” Nanoha remained in silence for a few seconds, and then just smiled “I would stop you with everything I got if it were necessary” Subaru then smiled back at Nanoha “Thank you, Nanoha-san… Let’s do it! Mach Caliber!”

“All right buddy!” the device answered “Gear Excelion!” then wings appeared in Subaru’s boots “Raising Heart…Excelion mode” Nanoha also got ready for the battle, she knew Subaru wouldn’t stand back, but she needed to finish this battle quick before communication be restored.

The first one that attacked was Subaru, she used her Wing Road to get in close range to Nanoha and perform a melee attack “Revolver Shoot!” Subaru’s plan was to kept Nanoha in close range attacks, but constantly moving using Wing Road, to avoid possible counterattacks of her, on the other side, Nanoha easily evaded her attack with Flash Move, she understood Subaru’s plan and tried to get distance from her, or at least make Subaru think that was her plan. Subaru, after her attack was evaded, used her Wing Road to pursue Nanoha, but then she saw how Nanoha suddenly change her direction and used Raising Heart as a melee weapon, on its head, Raising Heart had magical energy balls like her basic Divine Shooter, but this balls spin around its head.

“Revolver Cannon!” to counter Nanoha’s attack, Subaru used Revolver Cannon, each attack impacted, and then, by the force of it, were impulse back. Subaru didn’t expected Nanoha to do a melee attack, being more powerful in distance attacks. But Nanoha didn’t give her much time to think, in the moment the impact made distance on them “Axel Shooter!” dozens of magic missiles went in Subaru’s direction, who used her Wing Road and Chant Protection to evade and defend herself from the coming attacks, then she saw Nanoha aiming at her with Raising Heart “Divine Buster!” Subaru’s device saw the beam coming and rapidly set a defense against it “Protection powered”.

In the moment Subaru stopped the beam with her Protection, she felt in Nanoha’s trap “Excelion Buster!” the sudden power up in the beam broke Subaru’s Protection and made a direct hit on her, but she managed to create a wing road and stand on it, when she was about to close distance with Nanoha, “No, that’s enough” Nanoha voice confused her, then she fell into her Wing Road “Wh…what?” she saw her hands and feet bounded with a binding spell “when did she…?” Subaru thought about Nanoha first melee attack, the first attack was probably a distraction to set a binding spell on her, when she tried to release from it “I’m sorry Subaru, but this battle is over” Nanoha’s close voice made her realize that Nanoha was aiming at her in close range “Wait, nano…” unfortunately Subaru couldn’t finish her words “Excelion buster” Raising heart commanded and a full force beam impacted against Subaru. After the impact was over, Nanoha used her magic to lay the unconscious Subaru on one of the buildings roofs.

“You have become stronger Subaru, but I can’t be defeated here” Nanoha then parted in eastern direction.

11:15 TSAB Central Base

Hayate managed to get electricity back to the base, but communication were still jammed, the teams in charge of the wounded reported that they encounter no enemy forces, which surprised Hayate, the soldiers that were in the basement presented severe wounds, but non fatal “This is strange, perhaps they used the attack here as a distraction? Then their main force must be on the northern base 78, in that case…” Hayate wanted to go as soon as she can to the north, but Vita was missing, at first Hayate thought she may be among the wounded in the explosion, but that seemed not to be the case, since all of the wounded reported that Vita wasn’t with them at the moment of the explosion “perhaps Vita followed Signum and the others?” Rein question made sense, but Hayate was sure that Signum told her about her plan.

“Lieutenant Coronel Yagami” one of the soldiers spoke to her “We can manage to get things working here, you should depart to the north if you think is necessary” Hayate doubted, but there were no more options “Okay, I will take some soldiers with me, if Second Lieutenant Vita appear and she is not wounded, tell her to go straight to the northern base 78! Also be careful, the fact that no enemy forces were in sight doesn’t mean you’re safe!” with that last warning, Hayate and Rein leaved the base with a group of soldiers.

It toke them thirty minutes to arrive to the north and the situation seemed surprisingly to be the same, no enemy forces were in sight, several explosions seemed to have taken place, her knights probably were helping around, because she couldn’t see them “Lieutenant Yagami” a soldier receive her as soon as they entered the base “I’m sorry to be late” apologized Hayate “Did you all defeated the main enemy force?” Hayate question came immediately but the soldier denied with his head “We didn’t fought any enemy forces, as soon as the explosions began and the communication were down, we tried to organize, at first as you have said we thought we were under attack, but as we saw no enemies, we focus on the wounded, soon after that the Wolkenritter unit arrived to assist us, they told us that they were commanded to defend this base, so since no enemies were found, they helped us with the wounded, specially Shamal-san.”

“I…see” Hayate was even more confused now, no enemy forces in neither of the bases? That was impossible, unless… “Hayate! You finally arrived!” a familiar voice caught her attention, but what was she doing there? “What are you doing here Vita-chan!?” Hayate was angry “Didn’t Signum told you to stay in the base!? You have no idea how worry I was! I thought you were caught in the explosions!” But Vita’s face became confused at Hayate’s words “What are you talking about? Signum told me to lead the Wolkenritter here…” Hayate was in shock at Vita’s words.

12:00 PM outside Eastern Prison.

“Answer me Signum-san!” Isaac question was reasonable; his savior wasn’t other than the Knight of the Sword, leader of the Wolkenritter, Signum “Dr. Prowder, there no time for this, we must…” Signum tried to move as fast as they could “I will not follow you until you explain me why would the Wolkenritter leader help me escape... What is Yagami-san planning?” Isaac wasn’t going to move unless he had some explanations “This has nothing to do with my master, this is a decision I made on my own, the reason behind it I prefer to keep it for myself.” Signum look at Isaac into his eyes with determination. He understood that something strong was motivating her, because there was no doubt in her eyes “…I will trust you for now” was Isaac response to Signum’s determination.

“In that case, we must hurry, I will assist you in getting the Book of Origins, we must depart to the north” Signum was aware that by that time, her master was probably in the northern base, which would make the entrance and obtain of the book complicated, but she had a plan, then when they were about to leave “Wait” Isaac voice stop her. “What is it now?” Signum didn’t want to lose more time “We have to go south, the Book of Origins was moved to a southern base two days ago…”

“What are you talking about? Who told you that?” Signum was confused, the first time she heard of the book’s location was when she arrested Dr. Prowder, and now the person that was in prison knew about a sudden change of location of the book? “last night someone came to my cell’s door, I couldn't see her face, but I’m sure it was a woman, although I didn't recognize her voice, she told the that the book was moved to a southern base, it was almost if like that person would know someone will come to free me.”

Signum thought about it, during Isaac’s arrest, it was certain that someone send him the blueprints of the bases, and the times of soldiers’ shifts, and now this person seemed to be sure that Dr. Prowder would be free by someone, probably Nanoha Takamachi.

“This is probably a trap” Isaac take her out of her thoughts “but if that woman is the same person that send me the first information, then probably is true, even if is a trap, I think we must take the risk, if the book is there, we have to obtain it before they do.”

Isaac was right, but Signum knew that that woman was probably a member of the –White Wolf- Group, and they wanted to use Isaac and however he sides with to obtain the book, she also felted that someone was watching them, but pretended she didn’t notice “I agree, so we most depart south then?” Signum asked him, while Isaac nodded his head “She told me that was a southern base fifth-teen miles from here” Signum knew the base, it was used as a warehouse “is close by, it will take us probably twenty minutes to arrive, we must depart immediately” Signum knew time run against them, if what Dr. Prowder said was true, then there would be only one person responsible of the book’s sudden change of location.

What Signum didn’t know is that the “someone” watching them, was actually two persons.

Subaru is still not a match for the White Devil,at least for now.

I didn't expect Signum to be the "savior" of doctor Isaac, I wonder what are her motivations for that.

All seems to go according to the evil chessmaster's plan.

I'll look forward to the next chapter.

I can't see Signum behaving against Hayate's orders like that, or indeed her motivation lies in curing Fate or it is even something else?
I also wonder who are these two hidden observers, but for that we will have to wait for new chapter.
I started reading this story yesterday, and was caught up quickly by it, so I just want more!
