A/N: this is my first fanfic in this fandom. I really enjoy Grabby's path, because it made me being like silly schoolgirl *kyaa kyaa* so frequently. And I'll make trilogy about my MC (mine is named Cesia Touyama), and this is the first story of the trilogy. Each trilogy will be added by one-shot. Maybe Grabby is a little—or really, OOC, but I've tried my best to keep him in his character. Oh yea it took place a day before summer break.
If you wondered how Cesia' look, it's absolutely like the picture I use as cover (hair type no.9-messy shoulder-length hair, hair color no. 4-carrot-like-orange, blue eyed)
Oh yea. About Latin phrase in the title… I don't know if it is right or not (I use Google translate), but if there's a mistake about Latin phrase, and grammar in the story, please tell me. I'll really appreciate it.

Words have meaning and names have power
Cesia walked slowly toward her house. It had been a while since spring break, but she couldn't help but miss her family. She would try to talk more with her parents, so she didn't feel out of place again. She'd have a long summer holiday and it'd be too frustrating if her lukewarm relationship with her parents lasted longer.
She found herself in front of her medium-sized house. Cesia reached the spare key from her pocket, and entered her house.
"Mom, dad? I'm home!"
Nobody but silent answered her. She then found a small letter.
We know it would be hard to you to understand this, but we must leave you. We, of course, will pay every tuition about your school, but we can't talk to you anymore.
Mom & Dad
Cesia's face became as white as the sheet. Tears started to run down her cheeks.
And everything went black.
Cesia jolted from the bed. The room was…different. She was not in her bedroom in dormitory nor in the home. But she recognized the man in front of her easily.
"Where am I?" she squeaked.
"You're in infirmary." He replied shortly.
"Why… What was happened?"
"Miss Middleton found you shivering in your bed, and your face was pale—almost blue. So she called Petunia, then she called me."
Cesia let out a sigh of relief and —unconsciously, tears.
"Thanks God. It was anything but a nightmare," she mumbled.
Professor Grabiner handed her a cup of chamomile tea. She took a sip slowly, with her still-unsteady grip.
"So, what happened?"
"About my dream? It was not…"
"I believe it's not a 'nothing' which could make you shivered like that."
Cesia looked up a bit. Was he… trying to care? Those kind of thought mad her smiled.
"Really, it is just a weird dream. I dreamed that my family leaving me. They absolutely will not do that right?" she smiled softly, but there was a worry in her tone.
"But… I'm afraid that it will really happen…" she said honestly.
"Do not mind it too much. It just a dream."
Professor Grabiner stood up from his chair. He then walked toward the door.
"Yes?" he replied without turned his face.
"Thank you for taking care of me. And sorry for taking your precious time," she said with her best smile. Although he didn't see it, but she knew that he knew she was smiling for him.
And he left without a word.
Cesia walked toward her house. Since her parents didn't pick her up, she decided to go home all alone after she spent a good one and a half hours to refuse Professor Potsdam' offer to give her ride—of course Professor Grabiner was the one who would drive her and that fact made her uncomfortable to accept the offer. Somehow she felt dé ja vu because of the dream. She was walking slowly with a loud thumps in her heart. She gripped the amulet from academy in her choker firmly, to calm herself.
"That's just a dream… that's just a dream..." she mumbled again and again to get away her nervous.
But once she arrived in front of her hours, her eyes widened.
~A few hours ago
Professor Grabiner just arrived at the staff room when he saw a large box. He approached it slowly. It was so strange that someone sent a packet in the holiday. Before he touched it, he detected the box first if there was charm or whatsoever. Nothing, just a usual large box.
And it was addressed to his young wife—Cesia Touyama
Of course, it wasn't his business, and he was never curious about other's business. But somehow, he felt an urge to know what the inside of the box was.
So, he casted a spell, to help him saw through the box.
And his eyes widened.
No, there was no serial killer in her house, or remnants of her house because it was fired. Her house had not changed at all except there was a sign which was written 'house for sale'
Did her parents forget to tell her? Or they didn't tell her on purpose? Many assumptions were flooded her mind, so she went to the nearest phone box to call her mom.
"Morning. May I know with who I speak?" her mother voice rang through the phone.
"Mom! It's me! Why…"
A gasp and the call ended. She called again her mother and father, but all she heard was to leave a message.
It was worse than her dream. They even didn't leave a memo or anything. Moreover they didn't promise to pay the school tuition.
Her heart felt sad, angry, agony. Tears streamed down her cheeks. She didn't realize that she flowed her magic power through her body. The rust of wind and a thick atmosphere surrounded her.
And the atmosphere became thicker… and thicker…
~A few minutes earlier
"Hieronymous, what's the matter?"
Professor Potsdam managed the tea set in the table for Professor Grabiner and her tea-time. Her voice somehow mad him startled.
"Petunia, please check this box."
Professor Potsdam—after detected whether the box charmed, used the same spell that Professor Grabiner had used to see through the box.
"Oh. My. Goodness." Professor Potsdam placed the box in its place.
"Is she… abandoned?" Professor Grabiner said in a concerned voice.
"I think so… It has been a while since we got this kind of case, right?" Professor Potsdam smiled bitterly. Professor Grabiner couldn't help but remembered the first and latest time Cesia told him about her family.
"…it's like I'm moving on without them or they're moving on without me."
"Then, I will pick her up. At this time, she must have arrived at her home."
They soon heard an explosion from Professor Potsdam's room. They rushed to Professor Potsdam's room.
"What's that?" Professor Grabiner asked.
"That… that jar…" Professor Potsdam analyzed the exploded jar. "It was contented an amulet which connected to Cesia's amulet. If something happened to Cesia's amulet, this amulet would suffer the same thing that happened to her amulet."
Without thinking for a second time, Professor Grabiner casted a spell to teleport to Cesia's current location.
