The next morning, he rolled to the side of the bed and sat up. He heard Miia whimper a little bit and turned to look at her. She was shivering, her face was bright red, her eyes were wide open and she was clearly exhausted. He got up and stretched then put on his robes. She was hugging herself and curled in a ball. He placed his hand on her. She was shivering so he sat her on his lap and hugged her, and slowly she stopped trembling. He held her in his arms tightly and whispered in her ear.
"Better?" She nodded and Gold carried her and opened the curtains in the room and placed her in the rays of the sun, "There, you should heat up soon, here, have this," He covered her with the blanket, "I'll go get some breakfast," He opened the door and fell face to face with Katie, "Oh, hello, how are you today?"
"Tired, how are you guys doing?"
"I was going to get some breakfast," He said, "Miia has to heat up a little, she is cold-blooded."
"Come with me," She said as he closed the door and he followed her. They found themselves in the kitchen of the palace soon after. The chef greeted her, "Make some breakfast for me and the guests, will you?"
"Yes, ma'am, to your room?"
"No, the guest room, next to my room," She requested and he nodded and returned to cooking. They headed back up to the room and entered. Miia had only removed the blanket and turned when she noticed the door opening.
"Master-," She looked down and sighed, "I won't bother you," Katie blushed and looked at Gold. Gold chuckled and walked over to Miia and placed his hand on her shoulder, "M-master?"
"She is only here to have breakfast with us," He whispered as Katie slowly moved backwards to the door, "Tier 6, cast Shift Environment," The door closed and locked behind Katie. She backed up and slowly fell to the floor, with fear in her eyes as he walked towards her, "Don't worry, I don't think you would enjoy a round 2, can you trust me, Katie?" He pulled out a chair and gestured for her to sit down, she hesitated and sat down. Gold snapped his fingers and the lock on the door opened, "Why would I want to have sex with you this early, if I were staying one more night, maybe I would have gone to your room and we could have some more fun," He smiled under his mask as Miia poked his leg, "But it would be mean to Miia and I think we should go to the next town, to see if they have some more quests," Miia smiled and rubbed her head against his leg. A knock came on the door.
"Come in!" Katie called as a servant walked in with a tray of food, "Thank you, place it on the table," She did as she said and then bowed and left, "Is this fine with you?" Gold looked at her puzzled, "The food."
"Oh, yeah, probably," He removed his mask and began eating. Katie and Gold talked for a little while as they were eating, Miia didn't say anything, Gold felt that she was annoyed.
They were walking down the path that left the town and headed towards another city. Miia hadn't said anything since morning and walked on the other side of the path, the furthest she could from him. Every time Gold tried to speak to her, she turned her head away from him and ignored him. He shrugged and they continued walking. Until Miia asked him a question.
"Did you actually like her, master?"
"Can't you guess? I was just taking advantage of that situation, a virgin succubus, when am I ever going to get that again?" He laughed and instantly stopped when she glared at him, "I don't like her, I don't think that I could ever stay with her for more than just one night, but aside from that, do you know where the others are? Like, I know they were sent here but I don't know where, I didn't ask father."
"I don't know, I never left that forest."
"My girl, have you ever heard about the Overlord?" Clover tilted her head to the side questioningly, "Have your parents never told you of that tale? The Overlord is the son of the creator, sent to Goldema to protect and maintain peace in the realm, but he doesn't use his actual name and hides his appearance, under long robes and a mask."
"A mask, what type of mask?"
"A mask that is a green and red face with a massive grin of white, triangular teeth, with golden eyes," He explained, "It is supposed to be terrifying, but I think that if you knew it was the Overlord, everyone would be terrified, even if he is supposed to protect the realm, he has a decently short temper and protects his friends and followers with destructive power."
"Yes, the Creator gave him four followers, a reptilian queen, an elfic druid, a demon lord and a Diamyo brute, they are formidable opponents but without their master, they are useless or terrified of the outside world and close themselves in, like in a forest or they try to blend in by finding a city and settling in and helping the people to be accepted but never try to stand out," The man explained, "But those are just legends, I've loved that story ever since I was a little boy, my father used to tell me about him, and how he could summon demons from the depths of hell and the judgement of the creator in an instant with massive spells and at the same time."
"He is a spell caster, who hides his identity under long robes, and a mask, what name does he use in the legends?"
"Oh my, I think he uses Goldema, as the name of the realm or something along those lines, but why do you ask?"
"Just curious," She gave him a silver coin, "Thank you for that story," He gave back the coin and laughed.
"I don't need this money, you repaid me by listening to me and being interested, I think that is enough," He laughed as she took the coin, "May the Creator forever guard your soul."
She bowed her head and put her bag on her back, she ran to Lady Liz's store and found her inside, making potions, "Liz," She said out of breath, "I need to leave you for some time, I need to go find Gold."
"What do you mean?" She said as she continued making her potion, "Why so urgently?"
"He is the Overlord," This made her drop her beaker into the sink, "The legends describe him perfectly, the mask, the robes and the name, Gold for Goldema, I need to go find him," She shook her head and got up and walked towards Clover, pinning her with her arms to the wall, "L-Liz?"
"If you are so sure," She sighed, "You can leave tomorrow, I want to give you a real goodbye before," She smiled and kissed Clover's cheek, "When you do find him and do whatever you have to do, come back to me, I will miss you so much."
"I know, but first I have to do something, I have to know where he is going," She said as she slid out from under Liz's pin and walked to the door, "I will go ask the guild for the location of his last quest, and hopefully I can guess where he is going, or I will just go to that town and ask for directions."
