Unlucky?Player - Chapter 60 - 60)Lord Of The Underworld
“My Lord! We need to escape” Shade screamed the second they entered the portal, he was worried that the dazed Night wouldn’t be able to react on time but Night immediately grabbed his hand and decided to try his new Flight skill for the first time, it was incredibly hard to balance, it was quite close to swimming but there wasn’t any resistance and he could freely roam around.
The demons under them were screaming as they missed their prey by a hairs length, once they covered enough distance Night immediately lowered himself and deactivated his skill causing him to crash land while he held Shade, of course, it wasn’t because he ran out of mana, it was more due to the fact that Night found it arduous to maintain the skill for such a long time, it was his first time and the fact that he managed to even fly more than 1cm of the ground could be considered impressive, let alone flying high while carrying someone.
[World Quest: Tokihiko’s crisis completed!]
[Skill demon heart learned!]
[Demon heart: For the next minute, Fire and Dark element damage doubled. Mana requirement 2,000. Cooldown:1 hour]
“Haaaaah….I’m drained man, I can’t move a muscle, why is flying so stressful, I apologize Shade, I couldn’t go on any longer so I had to crash us”
The second he said that Night saw Noctis imitating him and crashing into the snow as well.
“Nonsense My Lord, please do not apologize, not only is this subject of yours impressed that you are able to fly but I am also grateful to you for saving my life,”
[You are in the presence of a Divine Being]
[You are in the presence of one of the 12 Olympians]
[You are in the presence of one of the Big Three of The Olympians]
[All damage decreased by 30%]
[You are in the presence of the Lord of the Underworld]
[Fire and Dark element boosted by 100%, if seen as an enemy Fire and Dark resistance -100%]
“You actually made me put in so much effort kid, bah”
“W-who…” Night managed to utter.
All of them were currently experiencing a pressure they weren’t capable of experiencing, after all even if the levels of Night, Noctis, and Shade are added it won’t even be equal to half of Hades’s level.
“Interesting, you can still talk in my presence, even though you’re this weak? well anyway go on, show me how you did what you did, you should be grateful you know? the God of the Underworld personally came to see you and by the looks of it I clearly overestimated you, tch, what a waste of time.” Hades growled as he stepped towards them.
‘Oh? waste of time? I see, I was quite excited to see you and honestly, slightly glad it wasn’t that brother of yours, well regardless, are you going to hurt the one who once took care of you?’ Nyx’s voice resounded in Hades’s thoughts causing him to stop in his tracks.
“T-this..voice….impossible..” Hades could feel the strength in his knees escape, sweat dropped from his forehead, “N-nyx…?”
“Nyx? maybe due to the passage of time you’ve forgotten but it is and always will be “Mother Night” to any of you children,” she said while scoffing, but this time she said it out loud, allowing everyone present to hear her voice.
“M-mother Night ho-”
“Oh Nyx, how do you feel?” Night casually asked forgetting about Hades’s presence, he was more concerned for her well-being for she bore a concerned look the last time they met.
“INSOLENCE, YOU DARE SPEAK SO CASUALLY WITH-”
“Of course, my dear child, it pleases this old soul that you care for her so much,” Nyx said, she sounded extremely genuine and touched allowing a pure smile to form on Night’s face.
[Affinity with Forbidden Grade NPC Nyx +15]
it was a notification he hadn’t seen in an awfully long time, in fact, the last time he saw his affinity increase with Nyx was around when he first met Hermes.
‘Who the f*ck is that kid??? why is he allowed to talk so casually to Great Mother Night???? first of all, why is Mother Night here???? weren’t the Primordials asleep?? that wretched older brother of mine, tch, after all the work he pushes on to me, he couldn’t even confirm her existence…’
“Now then my child, as a gift let me tell you a story, perhaps if you’re perceptive enough you might learn something, before that, come closer Hades and get rid of that filthy aura of yours, unless you want to let all the ‘Olympians’ know of your presence,” she said while narrowing her gaze onto him.
Noctis, on the other hand, was overwhelmed with joy, he could hear his mother’s voice, even if it wasn’t his actual mother, she took care of him and raised him all his life, Shade just kowtowed to Night as Nyx’s voice came out of Night.
Hades, however, was shocked when he saw Noctis, initially, he didn’t notice but Noctis gave off a similar aura as Nyx.
“….is that…a creature of Chaos..” he asked in a low tone.
“Yes, yes HE is,” Nyx’s voice resounded emphasizing the word ‘he’,
“Anyway, it’s time for a short story, join me for a bit,” she said with a smile before consuming everyone there into her domain.
