I wasn't comfortable with the dark skin at first, now that I have Moonshadow back in my life, I can live with it. She has made me her Scion, and imbued me with great powers, I can still shadow slide, and I am basically invisible in shadows, once every 24 hours I can know the answer to any one question I ask. I'm also incredibly strong and fast and now I can use shadow magic. Ever been hit by a Darkning bolt? It's literally sucks the life right out of you. Well we spent our first night together in a blurry whirlwind of passion and if there aren't a dozen offspring from the event I'd be stunned. First thing you have to know about gods is that they're very...fertile...though childbirth for deities can take nearly an form, in her case I try not to think that her divine form is a freaking half spider. We crashed at her father's place, which is so vast I can park the Lillun inside and lose it. Her Fathers place is a epic sized star ship 480 million miles wide by 24 million miles long and just as tall. I'm certain if this thing were to enter a system it would throw off the orbits of several planets. Inside of this massive ship are 3 Earth sized worlds held in place by massive gravity generators. I thought I was stunned by the Black Mantis's power until I was brought here...I never suspected. We're in a mountainous region on one of those worlds, and the view is spectacular, I begin my morning with some sword practice and after a few moments I can feel a pair of eyes staring my up and down like a choice cut of meat. and I smile because I know she's checking out my ass.
"Mmm good morning, my champion."
She throws her arms around men and hugs me from behind, the sweat from my workout is glistening down my chest and my breathing is already heavy, and I'm pretty sure it's turning her on.
"Darling, I'm all sweaty."
She inhales in deeply, and bites down on my shoulder and we're off again.
So after my second workout I call the Lillun, while Moonshadow cooks breakfast. There are really some things about this situation that are just off. Gods cooking breakfast and living in much the same way mortals do? It truly doesn't make sense. In any case Harley answers and I decide there's no time like the present to get the Justiciar thing out of the way.
Harley, I need you to contact Sathari prime and set up a meeting with you, me and Analaeus...
"Okay..." he says puzzled, "As soon as you tell me who the fuck you are."
Harley was never brought up to speed on my recent color adjustment.
"He He, sorry Harley it's me Mic' Aehl, I had a little mishap with the whole God of intrigue thing and this happened. of course Moonshadow is now back among the living and a second after i reverted back she redid this. Looks like I'm a dark elf from now on. That's part of what I wanted to meet with Analaeus, I can't continue as High Justiciar and I'm going to recommend that he appoint you, if you want the job?"
He looks bewildered at the onslaught of information and then asks
"Why are you stepping down?"
Here comes the part that I dread, because there's gonna be jokes. Looooooooots of jokes.
"Moonshadow has made me her Scion."
"Is that another word for..."
"Don't say it dude. You can think it bro but doooon't say it."
"So does this mean that you work for Him now too?"
"No but I live in his house hahaha."
"Okay bro, I'll set it up, in the meantime our comms are getting blown up by the clan asking about the wedding."
"Bah, I forgot all about that. Alright I'll com aboard and we'll set this up."
"How about a double wedding dear?" Moonshaow chimes in.
I'm only vaguely aware of the stupid look on my face as Harley bursts out laughing.
"Darling was that a bit too soon? Would you like more time to think about it?"
"No uh-I-um I've never been on the receiving end of a proposal before I'm just a little surprised is all. Can you marry your Scion?"
"As my Scion you have do as you're Mistress bids."
"Hmm as you wish my mistress, a double wedding it shall be."
I'm not sure about this but I do love her, and I know she loves me...so I guess we're in for a penny, in for a pound. Still I'm happy...now who do we get to perform the ceremony?
