”Spica dear…you seem distant is anything the matter?” called the woman from the door way. Dressed in a maids outfit the woman at the door walked towards the child in her rocking chair by the window.
”Nothings wrong Marle” replied the girl.
The rose haired woman froze at the words. Her mistress wasn’t supposed to speak. She had a terminal illness in her throat that didn’t allow her too.
”Spica…? Did you just say something?”
”Marle please leave. Call Shizune here for me…”
Marle hung her hair and walked out the door with every intention on going to speak to the lord of the house when ‘Shizune’ came up to her.
”you won’t interfere.” The emerald eyed goddess said tapping the caregiver lightly on the forehead as she dropped to the ground soundlessly.
”Mother, I believe its time to leave.”
”I haven’t seen him yet…” came the depressed voice from the child
Shizune, well; Hel walked over to her and held her mother by the hand.
”fine then…we’ll leave tonight…remember you shouldn’t talk while you’re in possession of this body.” Hel reminded, as she walked for the door pink hair trailing behind her.
”of course dear…” Angraboda whispered rising from the chair as she reached for the ribbon this girl ‘Spica’ always wore.
But then she remembered the loop whole.
Leave something behind…with her traces on it. And Hel would be forced to return her even if it were for only a day.
”very nice mother…well I suppose you aren’t called the omen of grief for anything…” Hel said kicking her legs as she laid on her stomach on the bed
”though it will cause him some pain…I’m sure being able to see each other once more will lighten both our spirits… don’t you think?”
”mother…what you did was selfish. That’s all. Don’t try and make up for It.”
blue strands of hair fell into her eyes as she hung her head.
”when did you become the smart one…”
”oh don’t think little of me, I’m your daughter after all” Hel said placidly
Angraboda sat besides her daughter. Sighing she continued.
”I knew it was selfish…but really? Could you blame me? I haven’t been able to see him since I was exiled for giving birth to you…”
Hels eyes became sharp as she stood up
”of course I’m being blamed…” she growled out resisting the urge to cry thinking that all this time her mother may have been the one who hated her.
”Hel, you know very well I meant that not to point blame. Now sit down.”
Hel did as she was told reluctantly. Sitting beside her mother again she looked away out of annoyance.
”when do we go?”
”after you get your precious little reunion with father. Go look for him; I’ll be by to escort you home after that.”
’it’s Heimdall!’ Angraboda thought as she poked the boy lying on the ground by the lake.
”what are you doing?!” Heimdall said roughly getting up from his position.
she poked him again and smiled
”Speak damn it!”
she shook her head
”oh very wise, bothering me, today of all days! God your lucky you’re female…” he growled out
’Heimdalls a girl! Oh Loki would love this!!!’ Angraboda thought
”I’ll kill them…”
”Have fun Heimdall!” Spica said laughing
”HAH! YOU SPOKE!”
”ya, and you’re in a dress, you win” she said poking him with the stick once more and walking up to a tree
”…I’ll kill her first…” she mumbled and climbed up
”who are you anyway?!” the tree yelled shaking a bit
”I am the omen of grief, but I doubt you remember who that is.” The sapphire haired girl laughed again for now Heimdall was hanging head first out of the tree.
”really, haven’t seen you since Loki went for Hels birth.”
Angraboda stopped laughing and her face grew serious.
”You saw that.”
”oh yes, very amusing if I might add, I asked him about the bruises and he got mad at me. Where did you get that medal pole anyway?” Heimdall said laughing.
”it was a lapse in judgment! I’d never do that on purpose, none of your business!” Angraboda yelled attempting to keep herself from pulling the now female Heimdall out of the tree by her hair
”Well, why are you here then?” Heimdall asked questionably.
”Personal reasons, and you have been keeping me too long, I have to find someone.” She replied, through gritted teeth, she never did like Heimdall.
”found him yet?” came a call from the street. Heimdall blinked some and turned to face the girl on the street, after ducking back into the tree however. If it was who he thought it was he would hate if she saw him like that! Peeking through the leaves he could barely see pink hair.
He had no way to be sure because it was too dark to see but he was almost certain that that was indeed Hel goddess of the underworld on Midgard yet again.
’it just keeps coming’
”good bye Heimdall!”
”I can’t feel him anywhere…” Angraboda mumbled from beside Hel
”that’s just because you’re weak from possessing that girl. Besides,… He’s right behind you.” Hel said a cunning look on her face as she pointed towards the out of breath child god standing a mere two feet behind them
”Don’t you dare disappear again or I swear…” he muttered holding the silk ribbon in his hand.
She couldn’t help but smile at the look on his face, Triumphant… but tired and sad. Not that she actually liked that face she put him through so much trouble. But because he had gone through so much just to see her again.
It made her feel…
A few moments late she felt arms close in around her. Returning the embrace she buried her face in his coat feeling the tears begging to flow.
Why had she wanted this so badly? Now she had to leave again. The heartbreak would probably kill her.
But she couldn’t help her desire to be held again.
She was being selfish.
And because of her stupid desire she was going to leave them both heartbroken.
A cold chill ran down her back as she thought of this and she let go.
”this can’t work…” she said between soft sobs.
Hel smiled and pat both of her parents on the head.
”I could always try to pull a few strings…it will be hard…but I’m sure I could get something to work…”
Spica stood shocked for a moment as did Loki who just now noticed his daughter was there.
”Why did you not say that in the first place?” the diamond eyed girl said slowly
Hel smiled again and shrugged.
”I don’t know…I guess it never crossed my mind before.”
Angrabodas eyes turned to slits
”I know you Hel. You did this on purpose didn’t you…”
”mother…of course I did. What do you expect from me?” she said and laughed
it was then the stalkers decided to jump out from the store they had been hiding in
”nuu!!! Its you!!!” Freya said poking Angraboda who laughed
Mayura sat there wondering and Yamino was already hugging his sister
”Fenrir Aniki-san should be here!”
(Somewhere at the groomers…
Fenrir: GET THAT THING AWAY FROM ME!
nurse: he’s the one getting fixed right?
Dr: no he’s the one getting the cone.
Fenrir: A CONE?!)
Loki spoke up finally, just one word though. ”how…?”
”I struck a deal with the Norn. Witness protection program.” She said laughing while smiling at her brother
Sneeze went the tree. Well, the girl in the tree.
Kumiko: well its done! kinda went from romance to humor huh?...oh well....wait for the sequel concerning Heimdall and the Norn
