Destroying My Own Novel – Chapter 289: Gaia. Bahasa Indonesia

290 Chapter 289: Gaia.

“Is this fine? Or should I make it more, befitting for the one who rules over thousands of gods?” Gaia asked with a smile.

“I’m just a guest, I have no complaints,” Mykel answered as he looked at the big table with two chairs made of stone in front of him. “Although, why did you make a big table but the chairs are right next to each other?” Mykel asked.

“I just want to sit next to you, is that a problem?” Gaia asked as she looked at Mykel to her left.

Mykel shook his head, and then he sat down on the chair.

Mykel looked at the scenery, which was a bit similar to what the Empyrean World used to be. It was so peaceful and relaxing, especially since all the creatures that lived there were so friendly and easy to approach.

Gaia sat down and noticed the chair was too small for her, and so she shrunk her body and made it as tall as Mykel. She then let a tree growing next to her, and the branches turned into cups. She plucked the cups and put them on the table.

“Would you like tea, coffee, milk, or wine?” Gaia asked.

“Anything would be fine, but wine sounds nice,” Mykel answered.

Gaia grew a grape from the same tree, and she used magic to squeeze the grapes. She then poured the wine into the cup and gave it to Mykel.

“Go ahead,” Gaia said as she looked at the cup.

Mykel took a sip, and it was the sweetest wine he ever had, and he could drink a lot of them. Suddenly, he felt a bit weird after taking a few sips of the wine, and his head started to ache and spin a bit.

“This is really a strong wine,” Mykel said as he took a deep breath and exhaled deeply to let the alcohol leave his body.

“Is it really?” Gaia asked with her eyebrows raised as she took a few sips. “Oh, yes, it’s quite strong for this occasion. We should drink something else,” Gaia said as she squinted her eyes.

Mykel didn’t complain as he watched Gaia change the wine into water.

“I want to thank you for saving her, but there’s also something else that I want from you,” Gaia said as she looked at Mykel. “I want you to save another recipient of mine,” Gaia continued.

“You want me to save Audgier?” Mykel asked with his eyebrows raised.

Gaia looked a bit surprised when she heard her recipient’s name. She never thought that Mykel would know the name, and it made her more curious about him.

“Yes, Audgier. How did you know his name?” Gaia asked. “Never mind that, you don’t have to answer that question,” Gaia continued as she shook her head.

“Of course, I won’t ask you to do it for free because you’re the only one who can do it. I can give you something valuable in return,” Gaia said.

“Even if you don’t tell me that, I will save him anyway because he will be useful to me in the future. You don’t have to give me something,” Mykel replied as he leaned on the chair and stared at the river to his left.

“If you put it that way, then I will take the opportunity to ask you for another favor,” Gaia said.

Mykel turned his head and looked at Gaia smiling at him.

“My sister, Nyx,” Gaia said as she crossed her arms on the table. “I want you to bring her back to her sense as what you did to Zeus, Poseidon, and the unfortunate Hades,” Gaia continued as she looked at the sky.

Although it was uncertain which came first, Nyx or Gaia, Mykel decided to make them sisters in the story. There would be no night without earth, and if earth existed, that also meant that night would exist at the same time.

Gaia wasn’t as strong as Nyx, not in a million years, but Nyx was afraid of her for a reason. If Gaia decided to kill herself, all the Greek Gods would lose all their homes and world, and that included Nyx. Nyx without her world would lose all her power, and so would all the Greek Gods.

Gaia would always be on top and respected by the Greek Gods. The problem was, Gaia was never interested in anything that happened between the Gods. Unfortunately, after knowing Nyx brought something that would endanger Gaia as the mother of creation, she couldn’t help but get worried about the future.

“You should know by now that she has someone that would protect her if I decided to do that,” Mykel said.

“I know, but isn’t that a good thing? You can take care of both of them easily. Everything would end by then,” Gaia replied.

“Do you really want it to end?” Mykel asked back.

Gaia squinted her eyes with a bit of a smile on her face. She looked at Mykel with a bit of suspicion and curiosity at the same time.

“You’re planning something, and I want you to tell me,” Gaia said.

Mykel smirked as he shook his head. “It’s something that you need to earn first, even for the mother of creation, I can’t trust you yet,” Mykel replied.

Gaia pretended to look surprised with her left hand covering her mouth, but then she chuckled softly as she nodded her head with understanding.

“Does that mean you’re inviting me to that place? Where’s everything so dark and gloomy? What was it called again? Niflheim?” Gaia asked.

“That’s if you want to go there. I’m not insisting on you, but I would love to see you there,” Mykel answered as he nodded his head. “When was the last time you met your own creation? Don’t you miss them?” Mykel asked.

Gaia hummed as she rested her right cheek on her right hand. “I will think about it,” Gaia answered.

“Well then, it looks like I we have nothing else to discuss. I have to go back to my world since I have been away for too long. Also, for your favor, I will find my way in first,” Mykel said.

“What? You’re leaving already?”Gaia asked as she stood up. “Well then, let’s meet again someday,” Gaia said as she looked at Mykel.

“Yes, we will meet again very soon,” Mykel smiled, and then warped back to earth.

(In Mykel’s office)

Mykel was back sitting on his chair, and he realized it was already nighttime. He looked at the time, and it was already past midnight, so he decided to go back to the apartment.

Mykel entered the apartment and saw Lyneth sitting on her own in the living room watching TV. She was wearing his shirt with nothing else. She looked tired and bored at the same time. She missed him so much that she wore Mykel’s shirt so she could smell his scent.

“You’re still awake?” Mykel asked as he approached her.

Lyneth turned her head and looked at Mykel with a tired smile.

“Hi, you’re finally back,” Lyneth said as she hugged the pillow.

Mykel sat down and looked at what Lyneth was watching, and it was just a midnight old movie. She put the pillow on Mykel’s lap and lay down as she grabbed Mykel’s left arm to wrap her body with it.

“I have been wondering,” Lyneth said.

Mykel looked down and saw Lyneth blankly staring at the TV.

“Am I pregnant?” Lyneth asked as she looked up into Mykel’s eye.

“Yes, you’re pregnant,” Mykel answered as he nodded his head.

All the fatigue in Lyneth’s body suddenly disappeared, and then she immediately sat up.

“I am?!” Lyneth asked with a big smile on her face.

Lyneth hugged Mykel so tightly as she made cute and happy noises. Mykel chuckled as he stroked her back and thought about it for a second.

“So, what do you want?” Mykel asked.

Lyneth leaned her head back to look at Mykel’s face.

“Want what?” Lyneth asked.

“A daughter or a son?” Mykel asked back.

“You can do something like that?” Lyneth asked with a confused look. “Then, if I can choose, I would love to have a daughter,” Lyneth answered.

“A daughter?” Mykel asked with his eyebrows raised. “A daughter it is then,” Mykel said with a smile.
