{Lupine} "It's all about family," Jamin says patiently.

{Lupine} "Let's say Marisela is replaced by this more powerful angel who is dead set on killing our brother. No offence to Kal meant, but it's clear a fully powered angel is more than a match for him and us when he's in the best of health, which we don't know for sure that he is.

"On the other hand, now let's say Marisela is reinstated as an angel. She'll be thinking to herself 'my, how lovely those demon goddesses were, maybe not all demons are inherently evil'. Maybe she talks to other angels and has them thinking the same way. Peace and loveliness spread, Kal gets to live, and we take a vacation in the land of the dead.
Jonah sips her nut brew while Jamin picks up the thread.

{Lupine} "But our family probably wouldn't approve of us helping Marisela given she beat Kal to a bleedy pulp, so we can't let them know either, hence us appearing drunk and bent on revenge against Marisela, during which she'll kill us."

{lupine} "Are you impressed? It's okay to be impressed. We won't tease you or anything."

Tala is impressed but tries not to show it much {lupine} "So basically you'd prefer the devil you know than the devil you don't. Their attitudes towards you might change, but not Kalidas. He's put more than enough of a dent in their resources to be beyond redemption in their eyes. And I can't say I blame them for that, if one person butchered a lot of your friends how would you feel towards them?"

The wolf pauses and then with a bit of a whine she looks at Jonah {lupine} "Look, could you go talk to her please? I don't know her as well as I like recently, which is slightly scary, but it's clear to me at least that she's upset. I know this is slightly rude for me to say but given you're going away again soon for an un-established time it would do her good. And she can do scary stuff when she's upset."

Another pause {lupine} "And I would appreciate the gesture. There's little worse than an upset mistress."

{Lupine} "Then at least we've bought Kalidas time to prepare," Jamin says as Jonah gets to her feet. "Besides, we know he's a jerk.  He killed Greeny.  Only jerks would want to kill someting so fluffy and cute."

Jonah gently taps on the door to the back room.

"Mel... it's Jonah."

Tala grins at Jamin "You're right there."

Melantha looks to the door when Jonah knocks from her chair at a desk. She sighs and composes herself before getting up, moving to the door and opening it "Hi Jonah."

Melantha nods slowly "Sure, come in then." she opens the door wider and steps backwards away from it.

What's this?  A little humility from a Fireball twin?  Sure looks like as she enters the room and meekly closes the door behind her.

She takes a deep breath, and speaks slowly.

"First of all - let me explain about the plan.  And then I'll tell you why you shouldn't worry about whether we'll be back or not."

Melantha nods again "Go on."

Tala wanders behind the bar and into the kitchens in search of food.

Jonah repeats the explanation she gave in the tavern.

Spoiler:

"Let's say Marisela is replaced by this more powerful angel who is dead set on killing our brother. No offence to Kal meant, but it's clear a fully powered angel is more than a match for him and us when he's in the best of health, which we don't know for sure that he is.

"On the other hand, now let's say Marisela is reinstated as an angel. She'll be thinking to herself 'my, how lovely those demon goddesses were, maybe not all demons are inherently evil'. Maybe she talks to other angels and has them thinking the same way. Peace and loveliness spread, Kal gets to live, and we take a vacation in the land of the dead.

"But our family probably wouldn't approve of us helping Marisela given she beat Kal to a bleedy pulp, so we can't let them know either, hence us appearing drunk and bent on revenge against Marisela, during which she'll kill us."



"So, you see, it's a way of helping out lots of people with one simple move.  And heck, I've died before. It's not pleasant, but we'll get better.  And, uh, yeah, we will be back..." Jonah looks a little awkward and embarrassed now.  "I'm sorry I was so blunt with the whole plan - I didn't realise you felt like that.  I thought we were just playthings to you.  Not that I minded, but-" and Jonah promptly shuts up again.

Melantha smiles slightly and sits down on a bed that's against one of the walls "I guess that I'm getting a little OCD about you, it was a bit childish to throw a mini-strop because of a decision that you took. But I also don't want to see you disappear again like before." she pauses for a split second before continuing into uncomfortable territory "You're not 'playthings' to me, I'll admit that at the start that you might have been but that's not the case now."

"Um, would it be wholly inappropriate to give you a big hug now?" Jonah asks.

Melantha giggles "Go ahead, and you can do a lot more if you like."

"A tight hug, then." Jonah approaches Mel and wraps her arms around her.

Which is gratefully received. Then after a (short) while Melantha looks at Jonah "I was thinking more to this tune." and she attempts to give the fiery goddess a huge kiss.

She'll succeed, too.

------

Meanwhile, in the tavern, Jamin tuts and downs a Nut Brew.

Melantha sighs and looks at Jonah "Look I'm not going to tell you not to do anything stupid, as you will be doing something stupid. Noble and brave yes, but still stupid. Just don't do anything more stupid."

.....

Alex tilts his head "Anything wrong Jamin?"

"Ahhhhh..." Jonah says, avoiding answering that.  "So... now we're all good... I should get back to my nut brew..." she says awkwardly.

-----------------

Jamin jumps, then blushes.

"What? No! Not really. I'm sorry - it's not something I'm comfortable talking about."

Melantha giggles again "Awww, that desperate to get away from me?"

.....

Alex nods "That's ok, I'm the same on some topics." he looks at the drinks surrounding Jamin "I'd offer you a drink but it looks like you've got plenty there."

Jonah blushes.
"No!  Not desperate... it's complicated, 'kay?"

-----------

Jamin nods.
"They don't work, anyway," she says.  "Which is why we go for Nut Brew rather than DLBs - Nut Brews taste nicer."

Melantha would try to take a stab at the reason, but decides to leave it for now. The situation was already very complicated and she doesn't want to add more to it. For now at least "Ok." after a short pause "As a final thought I'm going to give you a parting gift, something for you to know that you can come back to."

...............

Alex smiles "Y'know the god of wine has a stash of very potent stuff that can make even a god drunk."

"Oh? Jonah asks., both excited and intrigued.

----------------------

"Ugh, that's not Dionysus, is it?" Jamin says, scowling. "He's on our 'flame on sight' list."

Melantha tries something that she hasn't done before but she think s that Jonah will like it, hopefully very much. She gives her a kiss with a twist, with other people she has added an extra cold, icy sensation to it but she's almost certain that Jonah wouldn't like that at all so she goes the other way and adds a warm and fiery sensation to it that should travel down Jonah's spine.

.................

"You'll have to get to him before my old man, he's got a bone to pick with him too."

She's guessed right - but after recovering from the alarm of the new sensation, then the large amount of pleasure she gets from it, she pulls away abruptly.

"Um, yeah, wow, g'bye-" she splutters, and then flees for the door.

--------------

Jamin nods sympathetically.

"Yeah, I can imagine.  Me though, stickin' with the Nut Brew.  I drink for the taste and, right now, the smell although... you wouldn't happen to have any of that god-drunk stuff, would you?"

Then she sets down her glass slowly, and looks towards the door of the backroom where Jonah and Mel are.

Melantha giggles and blows Jonah a kiss "Now you know what will be waiting for you." then she turns and walks to the desk against the far wall.

............

Alex shakes his head "No, he mostly keeps that stuff to himself." he raises an eyebrow at Jamin's reaction.

And less than a second later, Jonah walks out of the door looking a little flustered.

"Having fun?" Jamin asks pointedly.  Jonah opens her mouth to answer, then looks thoughtful and smiles.

"Yep," she replies, before grinning.

"Turns out there's some proper drink that even gets gods drunk, but the guy's hogging it all to himself."

"We're not getting drunk though.  We want our wits about us."

"Yeah, but we want to smell drunk - I didn't actually consider drinking any."  Not really.  Well, maybe a little.
