Chapter 461

Serafall POV

I gathered my ice into my hand, sculpting and building it.

"Serafall…."

It became long and cylindrical. I gave it a good swing before adding more ice onto it, making it bigger.

"Serafall…."

At this point, it was about twice as big as I was.

Needed to be bigger.

"Serafall…."

More ice.

I wanted it to be about the size of a small house as I waved it around.

Perfect!

"Serafall!"

"Huh, did you say something Sirzechs?" I turned to look at my fellow Satan.

"….are you going to hit me with your club?" He asked.

"Don't be silly." I reassured him.

"….alright, I just thought – "

"It's not a club!"

"….pardon?"

"It's an enema!"

"….."

"Get over here, Sirzechs."

"Uh….Ajuka…?" He looked towards our other fellow Satan.

"Yeah, in a minute." Ajuka didn't even look up from his phone, obviously caught up in whatever it was he was looking at.

"The entire Norse Faction, Sirzechs!"

"Serafall, I get it…"

"Sirzechs!" I slammed the not a club into the ground next to him. "The Entire Norse Faction would forever have been our allies. Do you understand what I'm saying?"

"I get it, it would have been great for us, for you."

"Ignoring the political ramifications of having the Norse Faction as our undeniable allies, you're forgetting everything else." I turned to Ajuka. "Smelly Ajuka, how beneficial would it be to have Asgard in our back pockets?"

"Don't call me that." He said emotionlessly. "Preliminary calculations, based on this simulation, showed an overall growth of Devil Population by 17% over the next three years. It's estimated that we would have an increase in High-Class level devils by 12%, and an increase in Ultimate Class Devils by 2%. These are the conservative numbers."

"How –"

"The entirety of the Norse Realms would have been open to recruitment. Not only that, but their entire Magical Systems would be available for mass distribution along with actual and willing teachers and tutors in high numbers. We would have been able to open Magic Schools and hire Valkyries, Elves, and any number of individuals among their number to teach. Over the next Century, our Faction would have had a significant increase in strength." Ajuka didn't even pull his head up from his phone as he explained. "That is assuming we didn't end up absorbing them in part or entirely considering the damage they sustained. Many likely would have sought refuge in Hell even if they did not become devils."

"And that's not even considering the economic booms we would have received. Imports from the Norse account for 6% of our spending, that would have not only been reduced significantly, but we would have been able to increase the unique resources we received from them at a pittance." I added in as well. "Baldy could tell you more, if he was here."

"You know why he's not here, Serafall." Ajuka grunted.

"You know, it's funny. People are actually starting to wonder if Falbium even exists. And it's not even wild conspiracy theorists, there is legitimate evidence that rational people were throwing around online that actually almost convinced me that he wasn't real either." I plopped my pert tushy on my own giant icicle that was now stuck in the ground.

Ajuka looked up from his phone. "Huh."

"Wait, really?" Sirzechs blinked.

I shrugged. "Think about it, we're only the ones that ever appear in public."

Red frowned and conceded that. "It can't really be helped, his powers are entirely defensive based. He's basically a fortress in and of himself, and it's not worth the hassle to get him to move all the time. He's been sitting at the border with the Fallen territory acting as a deterrent since the whole fiasco with Kokabiel."

Honestly, I think he developed his powers that way just so he could slack off. His Absolute Defense lived up to its name, something that even Red over there would have trouble getting through. But once Baldy actually dug in and became immobile, his defense increased by several fold to the point that Red would not be able to break it without serious effort and time. And it grew to encompass huge areas when he's fully deployed.

Normally, he's set up in the middle of our biggest city and home of our families, but the issue at the time demanded certain responses.

The only downside was that it took time for him to 'set up' on a location, and it's annoying to constantly move him around.

Either way, his status as a Satan was earned, just not something easily movable nor visible.

"And to top it all off, this whole thing interrupted my yuri-yuri bonding time with Sona!"

"So that's what you're actually mad about." Red rolled his eyes. "You can sexually harass your sister any time, Serafall."

"Hey, it's not sexual harassment if it's voluntary!" Sure, she offered it as a 'price' for certain favors in return that I normally wouldn't be able to do because of political crap.

Of course I would do any favors she asked normally even ignoring that kind of thing. It's not like anyone would find out if I didn't run my mouth. But hey, I'm not going to say no to special kissing and touching time with my Sona.

Ajuka put his phone away and stood up. "I have an appointment soon, can we get to the point of this meeting?"

"Fine." I wanted to get back to Sona too. "Once again, we're going to have to talk about Lucifer Jr. Wait, what are you even looking at?

"Why does everyone insist on calling him that?" Red sighed.

"Because it's funny and accurate." I pointed out. "Regardless, Little Red did a big thing up in Asgard. And now, the Gods there are without a doubt in his corner so we need to be extra careful when dealing with him." Even more so than before.

Dealing with a kid with too much power in his hands was one thing, even if he could fight Indra as ridiculous as that was.

But an entire Faction behind him that had Gods that matched or surpassed Red, well, that was a whole other can of worms.

"To answer your question, I was looking over the magic employed during the events of the Asgardian Battle. It has caused quite a stir within the Magical community about certain things documented. The new arisen Goddess of Magic displayed a very interesting means of Spell deployment, as well as utilizing a spell that was able to wound a being such as Surtr and not heal. Likewise, Sirzechs' Bastard deployed a Spell that also wounded the Fire Giant by means which I can't seem to properly translate. And a secondary spell which somehow replicated the image of Yggdrasil by means which I don't yet fully understand."

"Well okay then." I'd leave all the magical techo-babble to him. It wasn't really up my alley. All I know was that it's seriously impressive and lots of people were going crazy over the stuff that was shown.

"What do you anticipate will be the immediate repercussions? Do you think our trade agreements will be cut due to our current relations to….him." Red asked a surprisingly good question.

"No." I shook my head. "Vidar knows how to keep personal and political matters separate. However, we can expect a sharp decline in our imports considering the fact that Asgard is barely standing at the moment. I suggest we provide some relief to get on their good side."

Red pursed his lips. "Our coffers aren't exactly overflowing."

Ajuka held his hands up, Magic Circles swirled as he performed Calculations that only he knew. "Let's create a new trade agreement in regards to food-stuffs from them and cut down on Wheat and Grain imports we're receiving from the Americas and Central Europe."

"Since when is the Norse an Agricultural Powerhouse?" I furrowed my brow.

"Since Sirzechs' Bastard Killed the Titan King then bound him to facilitate the Seasons and Harvests of the Norse Realms." Ajuka said rather bluntly.

"Right….that."

"We will be making a loss, but it won't be significant. I assume the good will is worth it?" He looked my way.

"Yeah, get me the numbers later and I'll swing something." Better than my original plan anyways. "Righto, so Lucifer Jr stocks are through the roof, publicly confirmed God-Killer now. That's been making the rounds everywhere."

"It was only a matter of time." Ajuka said simply. "Not only that, but it seems he's recognized as one of the top powerhouses of the world from what I've gathered in my free time."

"Oh jeez, do you seriously go on those 'Top 10' argument Forums in your free time?" I couldn't help but snort.

"They're a valid way to gather information about public perception." He defended himself.

Yeah, his job was to monitor the Devil Det, but I could tell when he was lying out his ass. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets into heated arguments with people online about his rankings.

Actually, now that I think about it, I think the publicly most agreed upon list was by his hand.

"In that same vein, are we going to do anything about the growing dissension regarding the fact that Lucifer Jr isn't part of our faction?" I breathed out, looking at Big Red.

"How bad is it?" He asked.

"Manageable, but it's growing by the day. He has his own fan club, and quite a big following despite not being active within the circles. I have no doubt that the Old Satan Faction is actively fanning the flames as well to make it worse. And I believe that Zekram is also helping build up your Bastard." Ajuka stated. "I suspect it has something to do with the features that he exhibited in the pictures and videos taken from the fights."

"You mean the fact that he had Horns and a Tail and other features like our Ancestors?" I asked.

"Yes." Ajuka nodded. "I am unsure of how. Not even the Zekram inherited those traits. They're something only given to the first…well, our predecessors and no other Devils. It's only serving to further intensify the praise and worship being built up."

Big Red, tapped his finger against his arm. "Squashing it will just make it explode more. Divert attention away from him and onto the team that was sent over to Asgard. Sairaorg was representing us in Asgard, I heard he fought a Giant along with that other Half Devil of Azazel's…..prop them up on our end that they defeated a God-level opponent."

I tilted my head and couldn't find an argument against what he said. "We need to make a showing soon, to remind everyone why we're the Satans. Maybe we should inquire – politely about the origins of his Demonic Features?" Because if there was a way to 'unlock' that sort of thing…it would be a large boon for us if we could get our hands on it.

"That's…..probably not a good idea for now." Red winced. "The dinner didn't go as well as I had hoped."

"….how bad was it?" I closed my eyes and calmed myself.

"Not as bad as it could have been, but not good." He shook his head. "I think we reached…..a mutual understanding, however." He smiled wryly. "Grayfia gave me advice that I should just stay in my lane and out of his way. Maybe there might be a situation in the future where something can happen, but for now, I'm going to follow her advice."

"Ajuka, quick go check with Michael to see if Big G returned, because I think I just witnessed a miracle!"

"Dammit Serafall…" Big Red sighed.

"Either that or Momma Gremory is pulling extra duty riding your Bastard."

I don't think I'd ever get tired of making that joke. Honestly, I don't get why he's so prude about it. If his Bastard wanted to rail my mom for the good of the Devil Faction, she would happily spread her legs with my support. The fact that Mamma Gremory and him were related just made it spicier.

"Why are you like this?" He face palmed.

"Because you're 30% of my current problems and I have no other avenue to release my stress right now because it's someone's fault I'm not having Yuri-Yuri time with Sona!"

 Ajuka tapped on his phone a few more times. "Azazel is trying to get a full meeting with us and Michael together to go over what happened."

I don't blame him, this was going to have far reaching consequences and we're still trying to pick apart what actually happened.

Honestly, the reports and evidence were insane and my head was spinning at the last bit.

Apparently Sirzechs' Bastard became King of Asgard for all of one day?

And then he made a bunch of new Gods, one of which was in his Harem and fought mother freaking Surtr to a standstill for a while.

I let out a long sigh. "Lucifer Jr killing Kronos, becoming King of Asgard, the whole thing with making Gods, and now Asgard is in his corner. Yeah, it's safe to say we need to get on the same page with both of them so we don't fumble a coordinated response." I looked at Red. "Especially because of him."

"Hey, I didn't do anything! Don't assume I'm going to be the cause of all our problems either!" He quickly defended himself.

"She's right, but I assume she is speaking about your Rook in particular." Ajuka clarified.

Red frowned. "Junior was being more melancholic the past couple days than normal. I thought something was wrong, and frankly, I don't even know if he realizes why he was feeling this way. But after finding out everything, it makes sense."

It's still ridiculous to think about how Red had a literal Clone of Surtr as his Rook.

Just…..the amount of bullshit that culminated into that happening was so stupid it made it hard to fully contemplate.

The Norse Gods had the bright idea of making a clone of Surtr to fight the original, or siphon his strength or something like that.

I'm not exactly privy on the details, but it apparently worked in some way. Though the Clone was much weaker than the Original, it's still utterly God Class in power and strength.

After confirming it as a failure, they kicked it out and no one – not even the original Surtr wanted anything to do with it. Frankly, no other Faction wanted that hot potato either. For one, they would then be on the bad side of the Norse because, well, it's Surtr regardless of it being a clone. As well as no other Godly Faction wanting a being that's literally meant to bring about the end of the Pantheon.

Red had the bright idea to turn him into a Devil!

Actually, it was rather smart. By becoming a Devil, his connection to the Norse was all but severed with how tenuous it was, and we gained a very powerful ally under our banner. Sure, Odin kicked up a fuss, but that was about it considering that they were the ones who threw him out and there was no reason for them to stay angry.

Overall, it was a big score for us.

So now we have our own little Surtr Jr.

"I can foresee that the Norse may look at us cautiously despite the fact that Junior wasn't associated with the Norse any longer." Red looked thoughtful. "But that just means we have to use this opportunity to smooth over any bad blood and help them while they need help."

"Right, let's get something on the books then." I waved my hand. "Ajuka tell him to get Michael's agreement, then we can set a time and place."

"Got it."

"Let's talk about the other important piece of news." I felt myself already scowling. "Rizevim appeared in public for the first time in a very long time. And he visited Old Man Bael."

As much as Red's Bastard was a headache inducing mess to consider along with what was happening in the Norse Realms, our immediate concern was our own messes to clean up.

And the Original Lucifer's Super Devil Son was right at the top of that list.

Wilhelm POV

"You are taking advantage of me."

I looked at Izzy. "I'm hurt and tired, I can barely stand, I need support."

"Yes, I'm sure that's why your arm is wrapped around me." She rolled her eyes.

"Alright, I'm taking advantage of you." I fully admitted.

She pursed her lips and poked my cheek. "You're not supposed to admit it."

"I just want to be close to my Izzy." I smiled.

"….idiot." She huffed. "Do you intend to stay longer?"

Realistically, I should be leaving soon before I get pulled into any more things. I made sure to get all my stuff back safe and sound. They needed to rebuild, and I didn't want people to assume that I was….getting involved in all that. Odin was my blood brother now, I'm friends with Asgard, and Jinn is literally a God of Asgard, but we are not of Asgard.

They needed to deal with their own matters in their own way. Odin understood this, which was why he didn't say anything. But I didn't want others to start speaking up about us being involved as I had already rocked the boat pretty hard. While it had been to save them, once the euphoria of the world not ending wore off, some would look back at it with wounded pride of having an outsider solve their problem.

"I want to go talk to a few people before heading out. Honestly, I'm on my feet, but I really shouldn't be right now. I don't feel like turning on my Circuits either because I feel like they're going to burn me from the inside out. My Soul…..actually, is it possible for my Soul to be sore? Because I'm fairly sure it is. And even if my body physically is healed thanks to Avalon, I still feel everything that happened."

"It seems you will be too tired to receive the reward I promised then."

"Wow, I suddenly feel so much better!"

Izzy rolled her eyes again. "It is open ended. Please do not push yourself."

"Can I take advantage of you just a smidge more.\?" I held my hand up with two fingers slightly apart from one another.

"You are the most audacious person I've ever met to so blatantly ask someone like that." She let out a breath. "But I suppose as a merciful Goddess, I will allow you to do so."

I leaned in and put a hand gently on her cheek so she was facing me and I claimed her lips. I didn't care who was watching at the moment as I took her in for a deep kiss.

"Hmph." She pursed her lips once we broke apart. "Far too bold."

"Well, Izzy is my woman, how am I supposed to hold back after not seeing you for so long?"

"It's been a few mere days."

"An agonizing eternity for me."

"Oh stop." She rolled her eyes, crossing her arms, but there was the faintest red hue she was trying her best to hide. "Behave yourself or I will call Jinn over to scold you."

I felt my lips twitch upwards. "I feel like that'll be worse for you. Is she still going around and ordering people around just due to the fact that 'They have to listen to her because she's a Goddess' as her argument?'"

"I would be concerned if she were not abusing her authority for the most wholesome and mundane things." Izzy snorted. "I admit that I was worried her new Godhood would….change her, go to her head, make her arrogant. Rather, she's just using it as an excuse to behave how she normally does. We will need to have a better talk later once everything is settled down. Suddenly becoming a God could not have been a simple matter even for an entity she once was"

"I know." I nodded in understanding. "Jinn's safety, and mental health are of utmost concern. As for now….it's fine, let her have her fun. Everyone is happy to let her run around as she is regardless."

Everyone here treated her like a literal Goddess. Everyone was aware that she stood up to Surtr and held him off to give everyone a chance. Before Jinn was…. insignificant in their eyes, someone not worth mentioning. It was their wrong opinion, but it was the one commonly held, until she went up against one of the strongest monsters this world could produce.

I think I saw her running around with Thor's Belt and Gloves earlier too. Which, she could have no way to have gotten unless the Thunder God allowed it.

It's hard not to love her.

"Regardless, let's go meet your friend! I need to embarrass you."

"Behave." She huffed.

"I am behaving. If I wasn't, do you really think you would be wearing pants right now?" I raised an eyebrow.

"…pervert." She turned away with a renewed flash of red across her cheeks before it disappeared.

"Seriously, I haven't gotten to meet Hel yet, and I want to know your friends." I said with genuineness.

"Well come along then, it will be good to see Hel. My main concern was your wellbeing when I arrived and I barely spoke a few words to make sure she was well. I would feel bad if she was not hanging off your friend since I arrived."

"Hah, you noticed it too?"

She gave me a deadpanned look. "I would have to be utterly blind not to notice. Or being your friend, because he seems rather obtuse." She paused. "I think I understand why you both are such good friends now."

"Hey, I'm not that bad!"

"At one point, I gave serious thought if I should just take my clothes off in front of you before I confessed to get my point across."

"Yes, you should have done that." I nodded.

She rolled her eyes again, and began pulling me towards a certain direction. "Come along, dear."

It wasn't particularly difficult to find Hel. Mostly because, I could feel Thorum nearby and his Dragon-like presence

Well, there was also the big fuck-off dragon that was Jormungandr and Durnehviir. The latter of whom looked like he was enjoying his bout of freedom, eating many different foods and chatting with the large Serpent.

I wasn't going to interrupt them, but Durnheviir seemed to notice me and gave me a look of admiration and thankfulness.

I would have to tell Meridia that he did a good job and see if he couldn't get a reward.

But Thorum was right by as well, and Hel was very close.

They both noticed right away.

"My friend!" Thorum came up and greeted me with a big hug. "You seem to be healed?"

"Physically…mostly." I winced. "But only Izzy can heal my weary soul~"

"Is that so?" Hel's tone was filled with amusement as she looked at Izzy. "Do you heal his weary soul, Izanami?"

Izzy was covering her face with her hand. "Hel, it's good to see you. Properly, that is. I'm glad you are okay."

Hel's expression softened. "Thank you, I know you had something to do with it."

"I just offered some words." Izzy shook her head.

"She threatened everyone involved if you were hurt." I added.

Izzy huffed cutely.

And Hel, well the Goddess of Death looked at Izzy with a big smile. "I can't wait until we have another get together. You'll have to bring your man with you."

"I'm never going to have a break, am I?" She sighed.

"You know how gossip is among us. You can't have him claiming you as his woman in front of the whole world and have us not talk about it." Hel laughed. "But…I'm happy that you found someone. You look much happier than I've seen in the past centuries."

Izzy's mask broke slightly and she smiled beautifully. "I am."

"And you must be her Boyfriend, huh?" Hel put her hands on her hips, sizing me up. "I can see why she decided to rob the cradle."

"Oh you bitch." Izzy grumbled. "You wanna talk about robbing the cradle?"

"I have no idea what you're talking about" Hel hummed, but the slight blush wasn't doing her any favors.

"So, Thorum, you and Hel seem to be getting along well." I found myself smiling. "Oh, right, this should be the first time you and Izzy are meeting in person."

"It is! But Wilhelm has told me a great many things about you, Lady Izanami!" Thorum had that signature big goofy smile of his.

"Just as well, Wilhelm speaks very highly of you as well." Izzy was warm and polite in return.

"Funny enough, Thorum here has been vague on where he's from. I'm assuming Midgard, possibly the north? But I can't seem to get a straight answer." Hel looked around.

"Erm… well…" Thorum scratched his head awkwardly.

"Thorum, just say it's a secret." I hit his shoulder. "If you can't talk about something due to personal or secretive reasons, it's better just to be forward about that than stumbling around. Especially for someone who can't lie to save their lives."

Izzy looked at Hel. "It's a sensitive matter."

"I figured, but I just wanted clarification. I'm not so crass like my father that I would do anything to satiate my curiosity." Hel rolled her eyes.

I felt myself wince. "I'm sorry about your Father."

"…..seriously?" Hel looked at me blankly.

"I know, it felt just as awkward to say right now as it probably was to hear. But you deserved to hear it in case that I am mistaken about anything." I confessed.

"…..he wasn't exactly in my good graces."

"I don't presume to know the relationship you had with him. And my own disputes and hate aside, I figured I would err on the side of caution."

Sometimes, a word of condolences could go a long way. I absolutely despised Loki with every fiber of my being, but I had no idea if he was a good father to her or not. It wasn't out of pity for Loki that I expressed my condolences, but for Hel.

Hel seemed to study me for a long while before letting out a sigh. "He wasn't so bad when I was younger. There were some points where I might have even called him a good father. But those parts died and they were buried in the depths of my heart never to return. I mourn the man my Father was, and could have been. But I have no love for the man that got his rightful punishment." She let out a long breath before her gentle smile returned. "But thank you, I appreciate the gesture."

I fumbled around in my ring, pulling out a Kaleidophone. "I wasn't able to reward you with anything at the time, there were limitations, some of them being that you were already a Goddess. However, I can personally give you something I think you would like."

"A phone?" She questioned.

"It's…special. You'll be able to talk to Thorum with this one in particular." I explained.

After sitting on the Throne of Asgard and everything that happened during my tenure on the Throne, I was able to see Yggdrasil in its entirety. Yggdrasil encompassed everything here. Its invisible roots and branches literally surrounded the entirety of the Nine Realms.

We were inside Yggdrasil at every point in time regardless of where we stood within the Nine Realms.

It's no wonder my Magic was acting up. And I assumed this was the case in some capacity before, and with Izzy's explanation, but to see it for myself….it's like trying to get cell reception in a lead lined sealed room.

However, my time being able to see everything did allow me to understand how to adjust for such a thing. It wouldn't be too much of a hassle in the future. And Yggdrasil itself wouldn't try to move to 'block' me or my Magic in any case anymore.

I think it linked my Magic 'feeling' to me now.

"I see." Her eyes lit up with clear understanding. "Thank you."

I nodded, and cast a very quick and subtle spell to project my voice slightly to only her. "Word of advice, be extremely blunt. Also, he already has a girlfriend, but that may not be a barrier, but that is between you and them."

Hel blinked and looked at me then at Thorum.

She didn't say anything, obviously she noticed the small act of magic, but her look expressed all the thanks she wanted to say.

Everything else between them was their own business and I wouldn't meddle.

"Why don't we go have some girl talk." Izzy suggested.

Hel just silently nodded because it seemed like she had a lot of things she wanted to ask.

Thorum just stared at them then at me. "Did something happen?"

I pat his shoulder. "Don't worry about it."

"Alright." He smiled.

I perked up because I saw someone else I knew and he noticed too because he happily came strolling over.

"Wilhelm!" Sairaorg greeted me happily.

"Hey Sairaorg." I smiled.

He reached his hand out and I happily took it. "I'm glad you're doing well. You were in rough shape there, but that's to be expected, you fought a hard battle!"

"Well, we managed to pull through."

He nodded. "And who is this?"

"Hello, I'm Thorum, Wilhelm's friend!"

"Hey, I'm Sairaorg, his Cousin!"

Jesus, there's two of them.

"You were the one with the dragon?" Sairaorg asked.

"Aye, that's Durnehviir, he is a mighty companion to have to battle with. What manner of battle did you fight? To be a cousin of my friend, you must be a fearsome warrior as well!"

Sairaorg laughed somewhat bashfully. "Hahaha, well, I hope so. I don't have much more than my own fists, but we were able to fight one of those powerful Jotuns. With help from my friends, we were able to defeat it."

"That is a feat worthy of a story!" Thorum laughed along with him. "Those Giants are powerful, to fight and defeat one with the aid of your comrades, you are mighty indeed!"

And just like that, they're best friends.

"One of the Warlords from Jotunheim, right?"

"That's what I heard." Sai nodded. "If not for Vali and Bikou along with the others…I would not be confident in winning even with Regulus' help. I was able to finally achieve Balance Breaker during the fight and we somehow beat him."

"Congratulations, that's not an easy thing to do." I was sincere in my praise. "Most people go their whole lives without achieving Balance Breaker."

"Haha, well I can't compare to you, yet." He slapped my shoulder, which actually hurt in my current state. "I will catch up soon!

I smiled then looked at Thorum. "And you, don't think I didn't notice you manipulating time with your shout. We're going to have to play around with that later."

"Aye, it was a surprise I wished to show in a duel with you, but alas, the situation was dire." Thorum sighed.

"And I appreciate you helping. Don't worry, it's powerful and I'm not sure how I'm going to even counter it just yet."

Sairaorg perked up. "Why don't we fight?"

Thorum's eyes widened. "Yes, that will be quite the battle!"

Seriously, there's really two of them.

But fuck, I wanted to join in but my body would probably cry if I even tried.

"Hey Sairaorg, where's everyone else?"

"Hmm? Oh, they're busy with their stuff. A lot of them had to check in with their Factions and report what happened."

"And you don't?" I tilted my head.

He shrugged.

Right, fuck it then.

Well, who cared. And who's gonna give him shit? He along with the others fought a God-level opponent. I can't say it was even on the level of Susanoo, but God-level is still God-level.

"I'll probably be heading out soon too. Do you plan on sticking around?"

Sairaorg shook his head. "I was just waiting until everything was settled. Regulus wanted to sit around for a couple of days too and laze around since we were getting good treatment. He worked hard so I didn't wanna tell him no."

Well, a lazy cat is gonna be a lazy cat.

As for me….with a quick look inside my ring, I looked at the Scythe that was weighing a bit on me right now, figuratively speaking.

It was then that I had the realization that I had no idea where Rhea actually was.

And in particular, I knew exactly one Greek Deity that could answer that question. I just wasn't too keen on meeting Hades when I knew he was probably pissed at me. And that's not something I could put off, I would have to do that before heading back home.

Maybe I should bring someone to act as a shield?

Odin would work, but he's probably needed here at the moment.

….Ratatoskr?

Actually, where is that squirrel?

"Have you guys seen Ratatoskr?"

"Nay." Thorum shook his head.

"The Squirrel?" Sairaorg asked.

"That's the one."

Sairaorg actually blushed and coughed. "He…..has not left his room along with Lady Freyja."

"….."

"You can check for yourself…..erm…..you only need to go near their room to hear."

"Respect."

Thorum nodded and even Sairaorg followed suit.

Speaking of furry animals, I felt Sir Wiggles approaching quickly.

He zipped through the air and I caught the King of Asgard happily. His little crown was still on his head.

Quickly, Lady Wiggles also landed on my shoulder.

Oddly, Sir Wiggles was acting strange, he kept nudging me and sending me strange feelings through our Familiar link.

Like….usually I can decipher them, but he felt anxious and excited. He kept nudging me towards Lady Wiggles until I looked at her, tilting my head and picked her up.

I felt a bump on her little tummy and my eyes widened in realization.

"You're Pregnant!?"
