It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single demon in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a spouse.

Or, at least, a friend with benefits.

Hearts Goetia might get NSFW. Or just real weird.

atrium.

i dont think jasper is gutsy enough to try to murder an angel in satans own mansion. for one who would be there to like, prepare/cook eae? i think the armory is out because of that.

assuming it is jasper i mean. we dont know for 100% certain i just dont trust him

If we're preventing people from leaving with Eae, the atrium is probably the better choice. Armories don't tend to have easy access to exits.

You step into the atrium.

It's just as large as it looked from the outside, with a high, arched ceiling that looks to be made of windows, to let the sun stream in. You're a little surprised this room doesn't get used more for social functions - it's certainly beautiful.

As you look up towards the windows, you notice the feathered decorations ringing the uppermost border of the room. You almost mistake them for taxidermy birds at first, until you work out what you're actually seeing.

Wings. Angel wings. Enough to make a complete ring around the room, stretched end to end and pinned up to the walls. The eyes on them - you've never seen eyes on angel wings before, ever - are all open.

All looking at you.

It must be a trick of the light.

Don't you have something more pressing to do, anyway?

As you continue through the atrium, you try not to look at the wings, and distract yourself by recalling a history lesson you once had on the first war with Heaven.

The seraphim were watcher angels, guardians appointed by God, and it was considered good fortune to have one in a battalion during wartime. The eyes on their wings let them see around themselves at all angles, making them both unmatchable defenders and excellent spies. It also made them a target. The first one in a group that demons would aim for. Their wings were distinct, and demons often took them as a trophy, an ornament to hang on the mantle.

The ranks of the seraphim dwindled. The last of them, a group of spies in Hell, were sent to infiltrate the court and bring back intelligence on Satan and his advisors. To steal back documents and letters Satan had brought with him from Heaven, and to keep the angels one step ahead of the demons’ maneuvers. They were caught, and held as prisoners of war for some time before Satan ordered them to be put to death.

According to your tutor, their wings used to be displayed on the outside of the palace - a taunt from Satan to Heaven. He probably moved them inside, once the war was over.

God never appointed any other angels to the position. Maybe out of fear for their lives, or because the seraphim had been an experiment to begin with, and the experiment had failed. But that was the last of the seraphim, so far as anyone knows.

Still a bit lost in thought, you arrive on the other side of the atrium, to find yourself once again faced with a choice. The entrance to your left looks as though it dead-ends in a small, darkened library with no one inside. The passageway to your right is just that - a long passageway, with doors that presumably lead to other rooms in the palace.

You hear voices, and an airy laugh, from somewhere down the hall.

You duck into the library, just to make sure no one's in there. It's actually more of a small study, and everything seems to be coated in a fine layer of dust, like no one's been in here in decades, or maybe even centuries. That's normal, you suppose. Most noble demons don't use every room in their estates, or they section off certain wings for guests, or servants to stay in.

Most of the walls are lined with bookshelves, with the exception of the far wall, which houses an elaborate writing desk. There's nothing on the desk except for a stack of what looks like blank sheets of parchment, and a bottle of ink. Above the desk are four paintings - well, three paintings, and a frame with a damaged canvas in it.

You draw a bit closer to the desk, and slowly realize that the three intact paintings each depict one of the archangels. You recognize Michael at the upper left, and Raphael, dressed in demon fashion, underneath of her. You have to assume the upper right painting is of Gabriel, though you've never seen them in person.

The desk seems to have drawers that you could rifle through if you wished, unless that would be pushing your luck. You're pretty sure Satan wouldn't notice if anything in here was missing or out of place, but you're also losing time you could be spending catching up to Eae.

That's the wrong way to approach this. There are some bets you just don't take and rifling through the demon king's desk and HOPING that he didn't notice it is one of them.

just, leave the library already. We're still trying to find Eae.

You decide not to press your luck as far as rifling through Satan's things is concerned. Heading out the door of the library, you make your way down the long hallway full of doors.

You notice that one of the doors at the other end of the hall is ajar, just slightly. There are...concerning noises coming from it. You push it open, just enough to peer inside.

You see Jasper in the room, first, and he sees you, too. The two of you lock eyes, and you find any words you might have been hoping to say stuck in your throat.

I don't think this is acceptable either. Ask Jasper if he is a cannibal. If yes, by nodding or word, close the door and run for safety. And help.
If no, close the door, remove your jacket, fling open the door and whip your jacket at Eae.

i mean i'm all for leaving jasper in the lurch but uh. maybe letting a... man eating angel... lurk around down here is a bad idea. i guess help him
>>
No. 924267 ID: 70df1e

lets help him so that he'll owe us a favor later. as ironic as it is to see him getting eaten by a demon eating angel, it would be like, really bad if we let eae go and it got tied back to us later.

don't fight eae though, just grab jasper and book it.

The whole point of investigating jasper was to prevent a new war with heaven from kicking off because Jasper wouldn't stop eating angels.

If we go and fetch Satan like this- (assuming he isn't already aware somehow) -then Jasper's karmariffic death could still instigate it and that little shit doesn't deserve being responsible for a brand new war.

You look away, shutting the door as you do so. Maybe this is irony, you think, walking as quickly as possible back towards the court.
