Two months after Vlad had closed the gate to Nightingale, how was Victor doing?
Of course, he was angry!
What did you expect? That he would wear a calm smile when he was unable to see his wives and family?
The first week that Victor found out he couldn ’t go to Nightingale, he found this situation strange, and not just him, Ruby too.
The two didn ’t think much at the time, considering they had just left a very pleasant ’date ’.
The two were in a good mood… They had literally reached Nirvana several times.
As they couldn ’t get in that day, they decided to wait.
A day passed, and the gate was still closed.
Another day passed, and the gate was still closed, and the Clan responsible for transporting Nightingale stopped responding to Ruby altogether.
On the third day, they realized something was wrong.
Trying to understand the situation the two were in, the two vampires went looking for a witch, precisely speaking,
Arriving at the witch, Ruby asked if Esther knew anything, but the woman didn ’t know anything either. She even said that the vampires who lived in Nightingale and frequented her bar hadn ’t been coming for two days either.
Which was impossible. After all, these vampires were at least addicted to the environment that Esther had created there.
”And now? ” Victor asked Ruby. He spoke in a calm tone, but Ruby could feel his impatience and concern.
Victor felt that something was wrong since something like this wouldn ’t happen all of a sudden.
He wanted answers… Wrong, he needed answers.
”I don ’t know, the only people who might even know this are the witches, or the clan responsible for the gate, but Natalia isn ’t answering me either. ” Ruby tried to call the maid, but the call didn ’t connect, which was impossible. After all, the cell phone that Natalia gave the girls was quite special, and could talk between worlds, so if Ruby couldn ’t get in touch with Natália…
It was because…
’Someone or something is interfering. ’ Ruby narrowed her eyes.
”… Hmm, I know someone who can help, but… It ’s going to be expensive. ” Esther spoke suddenly.
”…Hmm? ” Victor and Ruby looked at Esther, and from the looks of both of them, they clearly didn ’t like what they ’d heard; ’was this bitch trying to suck money out of them? ’
She swallowed hard when she felt the gaze of the two, more precisely speaking, Victor ’s!
”It ’s not me, it ’s the witch I ’m going to contact who will need to be paid. ”
”… ” The looks of the two became neutral, and Ruby asked:
”Who is this contact of yours? ”
”One of the witch queen ’s daughters, the second daughter, Helena Moriarty. ”
”… ” A silence fell on the place.
Ruby held back her urge to sigh and said, ”…Are you crazy? ” Just how much money would she have to spend to hire the service of one of the queen ’s daughters?
”… Well, you are Vampire Counts, right? You must have a lot of money. Hiring her service must be cheap. ”
”Just tell me how we are going to access the money? ” Ruby asked skeptically.
”All our money is in Nightingale. ” Victor continued.
”You don ’t leave the money in the human world? ” She couldn ’t believe such nonsense. How could they not leave their money in the human world?
What if something happened and they needed to use cash?
”Of course not, we only bring small amounts, but most of our money is in Nightingale. ” Despite having said ’small ’ amounts, the value could reach up to 8 figures in dollars, but even then, it wouldn ’t be enough to hire the daughter of the witch queen.
”Taxes. ” Victor and Ruby spoke at the same time.
Just how much tax should they pay the US government for bringing their money into the human world?
The two of them didn ’t even want to think about it, and dealing with the bureaucracy of it was boring as fuck.
”…. ” She definitely didn ’t expect that answer.
”Pay taxes, huh. ” Just imagining that she should pay her hard-earned money to someone made her stomach ache. Now imagine paying the government?
”I can understand you guys in that. ” Esther spoke in an understanding voice.
”… ” The place was silent again.
”…any other method? ” Ruby asked.
”… There is a method, but… You probably won ’t like it. ” Esther spoke in a way that didn ’t trigger Ruby.
”Spit it out. ” Ruby had no patience for games.
”…Fine. ” Esther spoke, and then she added, ”You can contact a god. ”
”…? ” Victor wore a confused face.
”God? Are you talking about the god of the church? ”
”It ’s not that god, it ’s another god. ” Esther explained.
’By the way she speaks, it suggests that there are several gods?… Are they strong? ’ Victor started to think about it.
”Why a god? ” Ruby asked.
”Gods are social beings, they have contacts with various gods who may know about your problem. Especially this god I ’m referring to, she ’s quite social… a bit too social. ” Esther muttered at the end.
’She? ’ Ruby ’s eyes glowed blood red for a few seconds.
Seeing that, the environment fell silent again.
”Precisely speaking, I ’m talking about the goddess Aphrodite who happens to be living in this city. ”
’Aphrodite? ’ Despite not knowing much about mythology, this name he knew; it was a well-known name after all.
Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty and love. Admired by all Olympians as the most beautiful goddess.
”Where is she? ” Victor asked as he wasted no time. If this goddess or whatever knows the answers to his questions, he must go to her.
”Well, her location-. ” Esther was going to say something, but suddenly Ruby spoke.
”I refuse. ”
”…Huh? ” Victor looked at Ruby.
”You ’re not going to meet that Bitch. ” Ruby ’s eyes were dark as a black hole.
”Huh? ” Victor couldn ’t understand Ruby ’s reaction, and he didn ’t like being stopped from doing something. But he wasn ’t stupid, so he wanted to understand why she wouldn ’t let him go visit Aphrodite.
”I ’ve heard rumors, the goddess Aphrodite is the greatest Thot on the entire planet, she will definitely ask to sleep with you in exchange for the information. ”
”You know I wouldn ’t, right? ” Victor narrowed his eyes.
”I know, but… ” Ruby meant that she was going to use her ’charm ’ on Victor to get him to sleep with her.
”Anyway, you shouldn ’t go, because if she wants to do something to you, I won ’t be able to stop it. ”
”… ” Victor was silent.
Ruby continued her reasoning, ”Although she is not a goddess of battle, or of war, she is still a goddess. She is strong. ”
”Oh… ” Victor ’s smile grew when he heard that she was strong, but soon his smile faded.
’It ’s not time to fight, I must solve my problem first. ’
”Is there another method, witch? ” Victor asked Esther.
”…I have a name, you know… ” She grumbled.
”… ” Victor continued looking at her with a dry gaze.
”Only two types of beings can know about this problem… ” She stopped talking and thought for a while, then she rephrased her sentence, ”Wrong, only three types of beings can: and these beings are the gods, the witches, or beings versatile in time/space magic. ”
”…The last one is practically impossible for you to find right now. ”
”… ” The room fell silent again.
[Master, you must go visit the goddess.]
[The Goddess is the closest and easiest being you can find and get the information you need… You just shouldn ’t fall for Charm .]
Hearing what Victor said, Ruby ’s eyes began to glow dangerously, and she spoke:
A cold air left her body and spread through the place:
”What are you doing? ”
A woman came out of the shadows, as she looked coldly at Ruby, and spoke:
”I ’m telling him the information you withheld from my master. ”
”Kaguya… ” Ruby ’s atmosphere seemed to grow even heavier.
Kaguya narrowed her eyes, ”Stop treating my master like a child. If he wants to go somewhere, he will. ”
”… ” Ruby was silent.
”If you ’re afraid of something, it is your duty to let him know so he can be prepared when dealing with it. ” Kaguya was totally against it when someone tried to limit her master.
As a free being, the master must make his own decisions by himself so he can grow and become ’strong ’.
”…You two… ” Victor ’s eyes narrowed.
”… ” The two looked at Victor.
He first directed his gaze at Ruby. ”First, explain what you ’re hiding. ”
”Second, ” He then looked at Kaguya, ”She is not limiting my movements. If I had no choice, I would have gone anyway. ”
”… ” Ruby ’s eyes narrowed. She didn ’t like Victor ’s answer, and she didn ’t want him to see that Thot.
”Third. Ruby, if you know something, you should tell me. ”
”We are a couple, right? ” He flashed a small smile.
”… ” Ruby opened her eyes wide.
”It ’s the couple ’s duty to share. ” Victor spoke simple words that shuddered through Ruby ’s entire body.
”Darling… ” She looked at the man with the eyes of a woman in love.
After a long silence, she sighed:
”I ’m sorry, I seem to have let my fears carry me away. ” She gathered her thoughts and began to explain:
”Simply put, that bitch is a goddess of love, and beauty, and consequently, her divine power is related to that. That is, she has something similar to what a vampire has. ”
”The Charm. However, the difference between that power and ours is that her charm is of the highest level. ”
”She can turn any man into a thirsty pig that wants to fuck her. ” Ruby spoke with disgust.
”How do you counter it? ”
”You cannot. ” Esther joined the conversation.
”There is no way to counter that power. ” Esther began to explain:
”Her power touches a sensitive area of all beings, the ’partner ’ area, meaning she takes the ’love ’, the ’desire ’ you have and focuses on it. ”
”This is complicated… ” Even Victor thought that.
”…Whether female or male, no one can escape her Charm . ”
”Women too? ” Victor raised an eyebrow.
”Most gods are bisexual. ”
”…And some have peculiar tastes. ” Esther felt disgust when she thought of Zeus.
”Is there a way to avoid this? ” Kaguya asked.
Esther looked at the Maid and said, ”…Yes. ”
Soon she looked at Victor:
”You must not have any interest in her. ”
”You can ’t find her beautiful, you can ’t have desires for her, and that ’s impossible. After all, she is the goddess of beauty. That is, she is the ideal beauty for ’everyone ’… ”
”Split out, witch. What should I do? ” Even Victor was getting angry now.
”You must become a eunuch. ”
