Natsu and the crew encountered a disruption of dimensions. Lucy lost some of her celestial keys during the incident. To retrieve the keys, all of them jumped into the crack of disruption and leapt into the realm.
The damp tongue of a horse was licking Wendy’s cheek, slowly waking her up with a warm touch. Two nostrils came into her sight.
Auriga: Calm down. Mr Horse is docile. He just wanted to bring you back from coma… Blah——
The painful Auriga covered his mouth and retched, with sweat dropping from his face. Mr Horse was nervously going round with the carriage. This scene freaked Wendy out.
Wendy: Are, are you alright?
Auriga: A man like me… wouldn’t last long…
A familiar voice sounded. Carla swiftly flew to Wendy, separating her from Auriga. She stared at this pessimistic man on alert.
Auriga: Blah—— Trying to help but got treated like a suspect, how unlucky I'm…
Wendy: Carla, he…
Wendy explained how Auriga and Mr Horse saved her. After hearing the whole thing out, Carla finally dropped her guard a bit. Knowing that Auriga’s conditions got worsen, Wendy powered herself to cure Auriga with healing arts.
Auriga: I’ve never seen any power like this… It’s warm…The toxin inside is getting neutralized…Amazing!
Carla: Of course! Wendy can heal more than just poisoning, but also burns, pains and wounds.
With Wendy’s treatment of Sky Magic, Auriga had his symptoms recovered. When Carla and Wendy were about to leave, she was tripped by a rock, stumbling hard on the road.
Auriga: Are you okay? You must have been wasting too much energy on healing a loser like me and the exhaustion tripped you.
Auriga: Where are you heading to? Get on the carriage and let us take you there.
Wendy: I, I have no idea…
Wendy confessed to Auriga about how the disruption had taken Lucy’s keys and everyone jumped into the time leap then she woke up here with Auriga.
Auriga: So you’re not from this realm…Then now you’ll have to find the keys first, then your friends——keys!?
Before Auriga met Wendy, he had escaped from a village filled with intoxicating mist. He was originally riding his carriage to travel around, until he ran into this toxic village. A female demon had threatened the village into a testing range. Toxic mist was released from a seal set by that demon, and it had the whole village swallowed.
Auriga: I was trying to stop that demon with Mr Horse, but I was intoxicated and couldn’t use my elemental power… I’m such a loser…
Wendy: Don't look down on yourself. Everyone has its own merit!
Auriga: You’re such a gentle girl… Speaking of keys, is your key a golden one, with a crab shape?
Carla: That sounds like Lucy’s key of Cancer, the Great Crab constellation! How did you know?
Auriga: I’ve seen that key! That demon is now wearing it as a hairpin. I guess you have to take her down first before getting it back, but the mist…
Wendy: For the village, for Lucy’s key… Here I come!
The ambitious Wendy stepped on Auriga’s carriage, but she tripped herself again clumsily. Poor Auriga became like a buffer underneath her.
Witch of the Shadowy Night: Hahahaha! Blow, toxic mist, blow! As long as my seal works, I can conquer more and more villages.
Witch of the Shadowy Night: Then I’ll soon become the demon queen of the villages!
Wendy, Auriga and the rest arrived at the intoxicated village. Toxic mist formed a barrier separating the village from the outside. They saw Witch of the Shadowy Night standing on the seal in the air and sneering arrogantly. The seal was large enough to cover the whole village in its perimeter.
Carla: She really has the key of the Great Crab Cancer on her head.
Auriga: We gotta get rid of the mist and the seal before we can take this demon down…
Wendy: I know the detoxicating spell. Let me help——
Auriga: No! I can't put girls in danger. Weakling like me is expendable. I’ll crack the seal and the rest is yours!
Wendy: Mr Auriga! Mr Mister Horse! Don’t!
Carla: “So Mister Horse is his name, not a title…”
Auriga held his breath to avoid inhaling the mist, then stormed into the village with the carriage. The power of fire element wrapped him with raging flame; He lashed his whip and Mr Horse sprinted towards the center of the seal at full gallop.
Witch of the Shadowy Night: You ignorant man, how dare you ruin future demon queen’s plan!
Auriga: Mr Horse, let’s go!!!
Auriga ripped the seal open with his carriage like a cannon of fire. Toxic mist started to vanish right away. He was gonna head back to run Witch of the Shadowy Night over, but Mr Horse’s hooves were trapped by the Witch’s toxin chains. Auriga and the carriage were stuck in the mid air.
Witch of the Shadowy Night: Darn it! My toxic mist…Save the seal for later. I’m gonna put you down first! Die slowly with my toxins!
Wendy: Sky Dragon's Wing Attack!
Two blade-like whirlwinds were cast from Wendy’s hands, not only hitting the Witch but cut Auriga and Mr Horse loose from the toxin chains.
Witch of the Shadowy Night: Haha, another tiny one is hiding here!
When Witch of the Shadowy Night found Wendy, she changed the target immediately. The Witch then lashed the toxin chain at Wendy, swinging the chains like a agile cobra.
Witch of the Shadowy Night: Hahahaha! Look at how this tiny girl dodges. What an exciting battle, but it’s time to end this!
Wendy: I don’t quite understand the pleasure of battles, but I’ll still be giving my very best!
The Witch combined a dozen of chains into one, turning them into a razor-sharp toxic sword to stab Wendy. Without even a single flinch, Wendy raised her arms to absorb the clean air. Then a hurricane was blasted from her mouth——
Witch of the Shadowy Night: Bye, lil’ girl!
Wendy: Sky Dragon's Howl!
Witch of the Shadowy Night: The potential of this little one…Truly amazing… I lose.
The roar was destructive like a tornato, blasting the Witch out of sight immediately. A golden key was falling from the mid air. The smart Mr Horse caught it with a jump, and returned to Wendy.
Auriga: And now the village is safe while you got the key back. Great, loser like me finally made some contribution.
Auriga: Something weird there… Is that the disruption you said before? Hop on, maybe your friends are waiting there!
Wendy: Thank you, Mr Auriga, Mr Mister Horse.
Mr Horse: “Actually… My name is Horse…Mister is just a title.”
Wendy and Carla hopped on Auriga’s carriage, making their way to the disruption before it disappeared. Auriga lashed his whip, and Mr Horse raced like lightning bolt.
