Ten Thousand Club
Azani held the invitation in one of her hands as she almost laid in her large throne. It was clear the ornate chair was not made for her, but it was hers now. The invitation was a curious thing as she had not brought it here and none in yomi would invite the upstart queen to anything. The strangest thing was thr invitation was from the world of the living orat least one of them. Azani was still a bit unclear about that little fact, but there was more to this TV show than a normal one. They had gotten to her home and rembered the gods existing rather than forgetting them like normal. Azani had long ago opened an read the contents, in fact she had done so right after she first saw it. It was some cheesey romance show. Weren't those all scripted? Well it wasn't like it mattered Azani wasn't looking for love such things were pointless. Humans died to fast and gods rarely had love that lasted. It was all dysfunction and issues. Azani wanted no part in such things she had enough issues and didn't need some mortal that would die on the blink of an eye. Still thatthey had remembered her as more than myth and legend meant there was an opertunity. These people in whatever world could break the view of spirit and mortal and Azani could exploit that. She needed more followers before she could execute a plan she had hatched. Gods were maluable things given power by what mortals beilived so whattgey goverened could change. That was what Azani wanted, to gain more things under her domain. Vengence and grudges were good but if she could also giveren forgiveness and absolution, then her name would plead in more than just rumors and creepy stories.
Azani frowned and stared at the invitation. She didn't like it, she didn't like showing that she might not be what others thought. She wanted to live up the the ideals of her station and be the forever spiteful twin. It was an odd thing to want to not be understood, but in a way to reveal you weren't as belived was a weakness.
Azani thought far back to the only time she could recall she had even been close to such weakness. Amaterasu had thrown a fit over something and decided to hide away in a cave. Her being the goddess of the sun and the gods having more powers in those days meant with her went the sun. The missing queen of the gods was not exactly hard to track down and even Azani herself had heard of the event in Yomi. She hadn't gone to do anything in fact looking back she didn't do anything. Azani had found the cave connected to yomi and gad simply watched her twin from the dark. When the little sun goddess left the cave to party with the others Azani had returned to yomi.
" Fuck it " Azani said to no one irritation welling up inside her as she thought about the past. Shewas to be feared not loved. This was just a marketing trip nothing more.
Azani would arrive at the manor as only one like her could. In front of the building the ground would shake, not much but enough to perhaps make people stumble. Then the ground split open. A rift that lead down deep into the earth to the underworld, to yomi. From this crack poured ot the dark spirits of yomi freedom to spread their darkness. Or more likely fade away. Azani herself would rise from the vent to yomi riding the insect like dark spirits.
Azani stepped off the spirits and the vent closed as if it had never been. She had dressed up for this and wore a black kimono with red spider lily patterns. The spider lillies actully moved independent of azani making it look like her kimono was looking into an endless field of the flowers.
" So this is the place, it is smaller than I thought " she sighed playing to the role of the queen who expected better and be ause she thought it would be.
