Valentine’s eyes welled up with tears of joy as he began laughing hysterically. Nork looked at him, laughing too, not knowing why he is laughing. He almost doubled over laughing beofre regaining his composure, putting his mask back on, and tackling Nork in a hug. β€œThank you.” He said softly. β€œI would absolutely love something to eat.” He let Nork go, as Nork ran his fingers through his own hair. β€œWhat do you want? Is there steak here?” Nork asked. Nork looked at his surroundings, as he spotted rows and rows of tables, and stalls of rich-smelling food. β€œDo you want sushi? I’m craving sushi right now.” Nork asked Valentine. Nork wanted to know more about Valentine, as he could be the last time Nork would see Valentine before the big war.

Valentine saw the rows and rows of tables decorated with fresh, hot food, and his mouth watered. He hadn’t seen so much food since his last Thanksgiving. Everything looked and smelled absolutely amazing. Nork asked him what he wanted to eat, expessing his own cravings for sushi. Valentine’s mind swam with all of the possibilities, and he just could decide what he wanted to devour the most. β€œIf somebody doesn’t stop me, I might just eat it all! Doesn’t it all look incredible?”

@lovelyhearts - Nork Yay! Friendies!

β€œWith practise, I could reach new heights in the magic-ing industry. An army of Geese. Can travel by land, air, or water. Also fucking terrifying; there’s no escaping them.”

Lou rolled onto his front a turned himself towards Celosia. β€œSo, you could- completely theoretically- light yourself on fire? Just, casually?”

It was probably for the better that Lou couldn’t control fire.

β€œWell, anyone can set themselves on fire; most people would just die. Or suffer 3rd degree burns. But, you could be, like, the ultimate Guy Fawkes scarecrow.”

It was definitely for the better that Lou couldn’t control fire.

β€œI mean, there must be tonnes of cool shit you can do with that stuff. I probably would have destroyed several things I shouldn’t have by now-- accidentally, of course. Responsibility and me don’t bode well.”

β€œIf somebody doesn’t stop me, I might just eat it all! Doesn’t it all look incredible?” Valentine replied. Nork laughed a little bit. β€œYou know what, let’s eat!” Nork said, happily. He took a seat at the front of the table, and he picked up a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He bit into it, jelly blobbing out of his mouth. β€œSo, tell me more about you!” Nork said, as he pat down the empty seat in front of him.

Hora couldn’t help but scoff at Ms. Nkosi’s little speech. Peace? This is not how we get peace. We get peace by simply not going in war. If we could just change their minds. Hora thought to herself. Hora flipped her hair, as she walked off affter Ms. Nkosi was done. People were scrambling, and they talked. Hora thought to herself. If she was going to be here for an eternity, might as well have a friend. Hora straightened her t-shirt and walked over to a girl just thinking to herself. β€œHi there! I’m Hora.” Hora introduced to her. Hora prayed to Ra that she was at least nice.

The two boys rushed to the table and sat down next to each other. Nork immediately grabbed a sandwich and stuffed it into his face, getting jelly all over himself. Valentine slipped his mask up father on his head, leaving his mouth exposed so that he could grab a turkey leg and chow down on it. They ate voraciously for a bit before Nork asked him about himself.

β€œOh. Well, I’m 18, I’m about 7 foot 5 inches, My blood type is O+, I weigh 180 pounds, and I was born on Febuary 14th.” He didn’t really know what else to say. He wasn’t good with feelings or personalities.

Valentine slipped his mask up father on his head, leaving his mouth exposed so that he could grab a turkey leg and started eating. β€œOh. Well, I’m 18, I’m about 7 foot 5 inches, My blood type is O+, I weigh 180 pounds, and I was born on Febuary 14th.” He said. Nork nodded. Nork took a big scoop of fries, and he ate them one by one. β€œSo… are you scared of death? On this war?” Nork asked.

They had been eating their feast together, laughing and joking casually, when suddenly Nork took the conversation to the nearest extreme: β€œSo… are you scared of death? On this war?”

Valentine was caught off guard, and he sorfted, almost choking as he inhaled a glop of mashed potato. As he spluttered and pounded on his chest, trying to clear out his throat, he couldn’t help but ask Nork something. β€œWhat brought that up? Are… Are you scared?” He asked his new friend.

Once he’d recovered from his potatoes, Valentine took a second to think about the question. β€œI don’t think I’d mind dying. I haven’t been scared of death since… Since my family died. I lost everything when the bombds hit; My face, My home, Everyone I loved and trusted. I don’t really have anything to leave behind anymore. It’s easier to face the inevitable when you don’t have anything holding you back.” He took a big gulp of Non-Alchoholic Fig Wine and wiped his face on his sleeve. He sighed, a bittersweet, dreamy smile crossing his face. β€œHonestly, If I die in this war, I’d almost be glad. Maybe I’d get the chance to see my Mom and Dad again in Valhalla. Maybe… Maybe I’d be beautiful again in Valhalla. I like to think my Goddess would let me be.”

β€œWhat brought that up? Are… Are you scared?” Valentine asked Nork. Nork shrugged and he took a sip from his goblet of green tea. β€œI don’t think I’d mind dying. I haven’t been scared of death since… Since my family died. I lost everything when the bombds hit; My face, My home, Everyone I loved and trusted. I don’t really have anything to leave behind anymore. It’s easier to face the inevitable when you don’t have anything holding you back.” He continued. Nork nodded along with Valentine. β€œWell, you’d be leaving your friend here alone.” Nork joked. Nork chuckled, before askig himself the question. Was he scared of death? No. Nork wouldn’t mind death anyways. But he had so much to leave behind, he would want to at least die in peace. β€œHonestly, If I die in this war, I’d almost be glad. Maybe I’d get the chance to see my Mom and Dad again in Valhalla. Maybe… Maybe I’d be beautiful again in Valhalla. I like to think my Goddess would let me be.” Valentine continued. β€œCheers to that, mate. Well, my mom and sister got killed by a bomb by the people of Andromeda, so… that’s my goal. Murdering all of them. Then I can die. At least I kill 2 people from Andromeda.” Nork said. A fire burned in Nork. He hated Andromeda. His mother and sister were dead because of the politicians who fight. β€œWe don’t really need war, its just the politicians. They created this war.” Nork took another sip of his tea, the bittersweet spinning liquid in his mouth.

Nork seemed to appreciate that Valentine didn’t fear death, as he didn’t seem to either. β€œMy mom and sister got killed by a bomb by the people of Andromeda, so… that’s my goal.” Nork revealed, and Valentine realized how similar they were. β€œβ€˜Goal’?” Valentine waited for Nork to elaborate. β€œMurdering all of them. Then I can die.” Nork explained. "At least I kill 2 people from Andromeda.”

Valentine was taken aback. Nork had seemed like a happy-go-lucky kid, but all of the sudden here he was, plotting murder and speaking of Andromeda with bloodlust in his eyes. He reminded Valentine of a younger version of himself, back when the bombs had just hit and the prospect of revenge compelled him to train until his entire body ached. It scared him a bit, how similar they were. The last thing he wanted was for a good kid like Nork to end up like him.

β€œWe don’t really need war, its just the politicians. They created this war.” Nork added, sipping his tea. β€œThat might be true,” Valentine said, β€œBut be careful with revenge, though. It can take you to dark places. Hate can corrupt you, twist up your soul.” He pulled out his father’s hunting knife to demonstrate, driving the mangled blade deep into the wood of the table. β€œIt’s like a weed. I you let it take root, it will wipe out everything else.” He drove the blade deeper into the table before wrenching it out of the wood, stripping it away untilt he table’s surface was nothing but splinters and fibers. β€œYou know what a weed leaves behind? Nothing. Absolutely nothing, apart from dead land. That’s what you’ll be if you manage to get your revenge. Dead and empty. Trust me.”

β€œI’ll think about it.” Nork lied. Nork wanted to believe Valentine, but his decision was final. Nyss has to be the champion. β€œDon’t you have the urge to kill, though? Win this war?” Nork said. He didn’t know what was happening to him, he’s turning into the dark side. β€œPersonally, I want people from Andromeda to burn like my mom and sister. But, I don’t know. I might change.” Nork said. He was now feeling rage, his face red from anger, and his smile sinister. He tried to keep it cool. He kept stabbing his mashed potatoes over and over, trying to let his rage out.

β€œWell, anyone can set themselves on fire; most people would just die. Or suffer 3rd degree burns. But, you could be, like, the ultimate Guy Fawkes scarecrow.”

He chuckled softly at Fischer’s statement. β€œYeah,” he stared into the distance as he imagined it, β€œthat would be pretty f.cking bad.ss.” He wondered if that kind of thing was possible for him yet. He knew he could easily manipulate that amount of fire but creating it was a different story. β€œMaybe manipulating already existing fire onto my body would be easier.”

If he could actually find that much.

β€œI mean, there must be tonnes of cool sh.t you can do with that stuff. I probably would have destroyed several things I shouldn’t have by now-- accidentally, of course. Responsibility and me don’t bode well.”

β€œWell I have seen pyrokentic flight on some television shows.” Another thing that would be borderline impossible because of his lacking pyrokentic ability. He wondered how their powers would be trained. Was there some type of guidebook the Gods had given them?

β€œBut yeah,” he turned to Fischer with an amused smile, β€œbeing in control of an unstoppable geese army is way less concerning. That’s something Circe’s done? Has she done anything more bad.ss?”

She looked around the center and her brows furrowed. β€œHave you ever been this far from home before?” She bit her lip. No one here seemed to above the age of twenty. β€œI wonder if we’re going to be allowed to see our parents. Ms. Nkosi seems nice enough to let us…”

Valentine got up from the table, a bit scared. What the hell happened to the kid he met a few second ago? Who was this bloodthirsty edgelord in his place? It was like a switch had flipped, friendly to vengeful with the snap of a finger. Did… Did Valentine bring on this change?

β€œMaybe I should go…” He started to walk away from the table.

He didn’t want to lose his only friend. β€œWait!” Nork said, as he dropped his chicken leg from his mouth. Nork took a napkin and wiped her mouth from barbeque sauce. Nork chased after Valentine, tripping a bit. β€œI didn’t mean to scare you, Val, its true. Sorry.” Nork sheepishly said, before backing away. β€œPlease don’t go.You’re my only friend.” Nork said, rubbing his neck.

Nork smiled cheekily, and he walked away to the lake, and sat down on the edge of the lake. Nork had a lot to think about. Nork took out his notebook from his pocket. He started writing, and writing about Andromeda, Xilin, and Nyss all combined together. He wrote about peace all over the world. The Nyss champions would be friends with the Xilin champions and maybe with the Andromeda champions. Writing was how Nork lives in his own worlds. Nork was finally feeling peaceful, even strong. Maybe Frigga was finally giving him peace.

β€œWell, I can’t say it’s not something she’s done; I don’t know her story. She has turned plenty of people into animals though.” Lou hesitated, considering the technicalities, β€œAnd I don’t think I could control the geese. I don’t think anyone can control geese. They’d just be an unstoppable force, destroying anything and everything in their path.”

He sat up properly, back to Celosia, and picked up a smooth stone next to him, beginning to flip it in his hand as he was talking. β€œFlying would be pretty cool. Maybe, if I manage to turn someone into a super buff goose, I could fly on it’s back. I might need a bigger bird, though.” He gave himself a moment to think, holding the stone still. β€œLike an ostrich.”

Lou lay back on the ground to actually see the person he was talking to. β€œYou could just carry matches around. Like, a lot of matches. Maybe a flamethrower would be better? They exist, right? Yeah, they do. I’ve seen them in movies. You can just…” He began attempting to demonstrate, flailing his arms above him, mimicking explosions, and losing grip on the stone that had forgotten he was holding. He grunted slightly as it landed on his chest and winded him a little.

β€œNot quite like that, but you get the picture… What was my point?”

β€œAnd I don’t think I could control the geese. I don’t think anyone can control geese. They’d just be an unstoppable force, destroying anything and everything in their path.”

He snorted. β€œEven less concerning…” Shaking his head, he spoke again, β€œThose f.ckers really are crazy. But so is any other bird…”

β€œLike an ostrich.”

β€œEh, ostriches can’t fly though. I don’t know of any huge bird that can.” He ran a hand through his hair. β€œBut dinosaurs… they’re animals too, right?” He looked over at Fischer, as if looking for confirmation. β€œSo maybe you could turn someone into a pterodactyl.” With a slight smile, he quickly added, β€œDon’t make me regret giving you that idea… if it works.”

Fischer then starting rambling about flamethrowers and matches. He flailed around to demonstrate.

Celosia snorted in amusement again. β€œCarrying a flamethrower around would be pretty bad.ss.” He picked up the rock from Fischer’s chest. β€œBut I need my hands free to manipulate the fire… Maybe I can hire a backup dude to hold it for me though.” With that said, he threw the rock to the side.

β€œNot quite like that, but you get the picture… What was my point?”

He was silent for a moment as he thought before speaking again. β€œLike I know. Flamethrowers are bad.ss and can help me use my powers better?” He extended a hand to Fischer. β€œHey, want to explore?”
