right by the entrance you broke, finally reality's taking its hold
A hum of a laugh leaves Sunjata yet again, a nod as he concedes the point, finding it not worth getting into the gritty gritty of everything. But then, the tables turn, and the question is flopped over toward Sunjata, demanded in fact, that his eyes widen a fraction as he stares at Nikolai, waiting patiently to figure out where to even start.

We were married before he was a demigod and I was the father of a child of Safrin.” He begins, leaning on an elbow on the bar as he scans Nikolai. “Of course I’ve met Safrin.I’ve slept with her, nearly falls from his tongue, but he bites it back. “I did meet the Voice though.” He pauses, considering where to start. “I wasn’t as close to Safrin when Nate and I married and Nate wasn’t as close to the Voice then either.

Nikolai relaxes as Sunjata takes the floor. It's a bit of a surprise that the Flood is so willing to indulge his questions, but it is appreciated. It's intriguing to hear how Sunjata and Nate ended up in their current situation. Married and clearly dedicated to each other, and yet arguably on opposite sides of a looming war. Yet they seemed to be finding a way around that given that Sunjata was here in teh Grounds.

Humming, Nikolai conceded enough to be vaguely tactful. "What do you think of them? Of the Voice and Safrin? Would you tell me, please?" The last word feels nearly foreign on his tongue but he's trying, ok? Nikolai adored the Voice, revered her and what she'd done for him and his mom. He was curious to hear Sunjata's thoughts on the Goddess, as well as his thoughts on Safrin.

The question of what he thinks about them rings eerily reminiscent of Nate’s own question not long ago, and he works his jaw as he considers how to answer it. It takes some time and he pours himself another glass, downing half before he even starts to pick apart his answer.

The Voice during the time I met her, felt… Cold to me? It’s likely because I’m so close to Safrin but it still felt cold, standoffish.” He pauses here before continuing. “But she cares about the Ascended and Nate so much that I have to like her, obviously, and I even relate to her in some aspects.” He doesn’t mention how he’s had to apologize to Safrin for having those very thoughts when he’d seen her in the most recent past.

Safrin, though I imagine much like you and the Voice, is everything to me. She’s the mother of my child, she’s protected me, saved me, been there when I needed her the most. She attuned me and changed my life.” He sets the glass down and regards Nikolai carefully. “I owe so much to her.

So the Flood had met both Goddesses. It wasn't too surprising, but it was still strange to hear that Sunjata had a relatively positive view of both. It was intriguing to hear the Goddess that Nikolai found so soothing described as cold and standoffish. Nikolai found himself raising a brow at that part, but didn't comment. It was almost certain that his Lady would act differently with an Attuned then one of her own.

The description of Safrin truly did align with all that the Voice meant to Nikolai. She was everything. His solace and guide, his hope. She gave him and his mother a new life indeed. A far greater one. For Safrin to mean all of that to Sunjata, and for the Flood to still be in the Grounds spoke volumes of his love for Nate. Nikolai actually felt a bit of awe creep up. Perhaps one day he'd have someone like that too? Would he want that?

"I see. Thank you for telling me." He finally states as Sunjata finishes speaking. The young Ascended eyes the man before him with open curiosity. "Do you know what you'll do in the coming days?" Worded so that the Attuned could take it at face value, or address the implied. What will you do when the war starts? Who will you side with?

Theres a glimmer of surprise that crosses Sunjata’s face as Nikolai thanks him for telling him. Perhaps he’s more used to an argument when it comes to his views of Safrin and his views of the Voice, but he takes the gratitude where he can and he finishes the last glass before pouring himself some water, taking a heavy sip of the glass of water before he addresses the next question.

It’s a lot, and there’s a heavy sigh that accompanies the start. “We both have to fight, there’s no way around that.” He works his jaw, finding his gaze slipping from Nikolai to focus on the lightning scars in the top of the bar table. “But I told Safrin I wouldn’t hurt him. I… Have a bargain with Safrin in regards to Nate in the war.” His gaze lifts then to scan Nikolai’s face. It isn’t his proudest moment, but a bargain was a bargain and he intends to stick with it.

Nikolai nods, accepting the circumstances as much as he can. A part of him pities Nate and Sunjata. They've been rather unlucky in this whole mess. Unluckier then most it seemed. The young Ascended couldn't even begin to imagine how conflicted the pair was, how stressed they must be.

The mention of a bargain has Nikolai's head shooting up, wide eyes meeting Sunjata's. "You made a bargain?" The words are hushed, a hint of both awe and disbelief. "That's...wow." The young Ascended blinks for a second, "You have way bigger balls then I thought. I mean.. damn. Ok."

To have the guts do bargain with a Goddess was no joke. To do so for the sake of protecting someone the Goddess likely hated for existing? Nikolai was genuinely impressed, and too shocked to be embarrassed about his own words. Once he recovered from his shock, Nikola regarded the Attuned with new eyes. "Nate's lucky to have you." He almost wanted to ask if the Demi-god knew about this bargain, but managed to refrain. He'd asked enough personal questions.

I did.” Sunjata confirms, but the smile is gone as he recalls what all it had cost him — with all the what if’s and hope it might shatter or give. As for having bigger balls, that comment does well to spark Sunjata’s mind, a snort coming to the surface of his emotions as he shakes his head. “I guess so.” Not many others thought of it the same when it came down to the nitty gritty of it, but here they were.

The mention of Nate being lucky to have him instinctively has Sunjata shaking his head, denying any sort of thing. “No, no.” A hum of a laugh leaves him and he finds a small smile creeping up onto his face. “I’m incredibly lucky to have him.” He corrects easily, lifting his gaze to meet Nikolai’s.
