For some, Underworld was a Dungeon. Fancy and pricey looking one at that. Nevertheless, a Cage. Like for those mermaids who are not allowed to move on even after their deaths. Kept in the other side of the Lord’s Palace, they are near to the river flowing by but punished to be devoid of waters. For a mermaid to be without the waters is like being without oxygen. They die every day because of the lack of water. But they are revived every day… Again…, again…, and again… Like the sailors whom they drowned and murdered due to lack of oxygen in deep waters… Until the sailors whom they drowned for fun in the icy-cold waters, come forward and forgive them.
Pretty Ironic, huh?
The Lord of Underworld ran a tight ship. I shook my head.
I slowly made my way to the banks of the river where I teleported along with my trusty surfboard. I should bestow it upon the Lord. Unlike John, maybe he will take my not-so-subtle hint and go on a well-earned vacation. Workaholics… I am surrounded by Idiots.
I should make that into a T-Shirt. ‘I AM SURROUNDED BY IDIOTS’
I chuckled. I reached the land and started walking when I felt someone’s stare on me. I turned to see a Naga sashaying towards me. He had the typical or same characteristics as all of his species. Oval shaped face, high cheekbones, lean upper body and a strong, slithering lower body. They are Handsome and eternal looking. And terrible flirts…
He came near me and called out. “Hey!!”
I hate rude, impolite people. So, I returned his greetings with a smile. “Hii!!”
Hearing that his smile broadened as the sun itself. “I saw you come out of nowhere. Did You fell out of the sky? Because Heaven’s missing an Angel…”
Like I said, TERRIBLE Flirts!!! My lips twitched because I speak and give him some pointers. But I didn’t want to encourage him in flirting business. I shook my head and smiled at him.
“I didn’t believe in heaven until I saw you…”
I smiled at his attempt. I think he knows, that he’s being cheesy to score one with me.
“So, what’s your curfew back to heaven?”
I let out a giggle at that, feeling like a Japanese Anime high school girl. Like I said, Terrible flirts!!! Adorable, yet Terrible…
He smiled and continued his cheesy flirting. “I hope Angels know CPR because you take my breath away.”
“Pfft… Haaa… ha… ha…” I let out booming laugh, full with my shoulders quaking and belly shaking.
He looked pleased with my laughter. He blinked his eyes innocently at me and flirted. “If you touch me, I’ll tell everyone I’ve been touched by an Angel!”
My legs started to feel like jelly and I still couldn’t stop laughing. I was shaking so hard with laughter bolts that kept coming. He slouched a bit, coming it my level. I put a hand on his shoulder and leaned on him because I was gonna fall, laughing my ass off, at this rate.
“If you are here, who is running the heaven??”
I bumped my fist at his shoulder and smiled at him. “Stop that… You insufferable flirt. I am here on business. I came to meet your Lord.”
He shook his head and smiled cheekily. “Ohh… Then it can only be business and not pleasure.”
I roll my eyes and chuckled at that. Everyone here knew how their Lord was like. “Yeah. You got that right!”
He smirked. “What about dinner after your business? I would love to find out what Angels eat?”
I patted his shoulder like such a sweet, good kid that he was. “Keep trying Romeo… Someday you will get it.”
And took off walking to the palace.
“Hey, somebody better call God, because he’s missing an angel!!”
I didn’t stop walking towards my destination but turn backwards facing him. I replied spreading my hands in a Ta-Da sign. “No need to call. I AM right here!?!!!” Then making finger guns, I said. “Pew, Pew, Pew…”
I wish I had captured the look on his face. Because he looked like a goldfish with his bulging eyes and gaping mouth.
And THAT, Ladies & Gentleman, is how we make an Exit.
