There was nothing much to do and Sedna was silent. I couldn't see where we were going, much less understand the current situation. The Goddess seemed to know who I was and my sudden disappearance was a huge news for them? The fact that other Gods and Goddesses exist was news to me. Then again, with the appearance of Sedna after the newbie, I shouldn't be surprised.
"Great One, we are approaching soon."
That's fast. I thought that the journey would take longer. Then again, Sedna was a Goddess and a powerful one at that. She was huge too and that meant she could cover a greater distance in a shorter time.
In the darkness of the water, I saw where Sedna was taking us to. It was a surprisingly beautiful place. Not many creatures could survive this deep and it wasn't surprising. Sedna was putting in more effort to swim as compared to earlier. I guess that the deeper the water, the harder it was to move.
"That is correct, Great One. This underwater valley has a very strong mysterious force that makes movement difficult. Weaker creatures will be unable to breathe here even if they could breathe underwater. The light from above does not reach the valley and the light here is emitted by the glowing corals that have made this valley their home."
That explanation was very helpful. However, more questions came to mind. Why did Sedna live here? How did she find this place? How does she know about me and where I was?
Sedna was now putting me down on a soft sponge and I silently relished in the luxury. The sponge was amazingly bouncy and I observed as Sedna picked up an ordinary looking shell.
That shell was far from ordinary. In fact, another voice came out from that shell.
"Yassas, this is Zeus speaking."
"Zeus, this is Sedna here. We found Great One." Sedna briefly glanced at me and flashed me a reassuring smile. I tried to smile back but failed as I realised I had no form.
"Oh? That's splendid news! I'll inform the rest, please help us to take care of Great One. We will visit very soon."
The conversation ended and Sedna put the shell back.
"Great One, please allow me to introduce myself once more. I am Sedna, the Goddess of the Sea and all Marine life. I oversee the cycle of life and death in this sea Every marine life born is created by me and everything that dies at sea returns to me. I ensure that the marine ecosystem is balanced and grant blessings to the humans who depend on the sea for a living."
That sounds like a huge responsibility... Sedna sounds like a very busy person too. I wonder if looking for me added to her troubles. In fact, if all Gods and Goddesses were this busy, I shouldn't be idling away.
"No, Great One, you are mistaken. It is not a burden at all to be maintaining this system of life. In fact, it is our great honour to do so. Great One wasn't idling either, you allowed us to exist and for that we are thankful."
Allowed them to exist? But I didn't do anything!
Sedna shook her head in horror. "Oh no, Great One. Not doing anything is the best that we can ask for. If Great One simply wishes it, you could easily absorb the entire world including all the life in it. There are no Gods or Goddesses capable of stopping you, everything rightfully belongs to you including our existence."
What? What is this horrific thing that she's talking about? Me as a world destroyer and destroyer of Gods? What's this ridiculous revelation? How can I absorb a universe if I'm unable to move?
Sedna blinked. "About that, the Great One does not move like we do. Assuming a physical form is one way of doing it but there is a faster way. The Great One can simply move from one place to another simply by willing it. As long as the Great One can see the place or has been there before, it is possible to travel there directly without movement."
