Lourdes of Loki part 22 - The trial
"I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth," I echoed. After that the judge told me I could sit down. For the first time in my life I felt stage fever. Then again, I had never taken the stage as a witness in a trial. Not to mention an US one. And I regretted I had turned down the chance to have a French interpreter, not because I wasn't fluent in English, but a translator would've given me just the slightest moral support plus the seconds spent translating what was being said would doubtlessly give me moments to think. I was perplexed by the jumpiness of my own nerves, I was after all but a witness here, a victim.
The one on trial was sitting opposite of me, the Asgardian Tiwal Eustatos, the man who had attacked Gaetania and me on Halloween, when we had been on our way to a Halloween costume party hosted by Ezra and Valdo. He had been dressed up as a mummy, to hide his tarnished face, armed with a spray can filled with some corrosive acid and his aim had been
Lourdes of Loki part 21 - Attention Seeker
Gaetania was sitting curled up in front of the TV set, eating strawberry yoghurt and watching Urban Angels when I returned from New York. That's the soap where about half of the cast has been injected with my ambrosia, so it's sort of funny to watch them. Almost makes us proud.

"When we had learned about those creepy Vodou demons, mother and I both felt that we needed to bound. And Poseidon understood that as well, so he excused himself and went to visit some friends he has at Manhattan. So mum and I..."

Lourdes of Loki part 20 - Desdemona LaMaison
About twenty minutes later we were standing in the reception area of a fancy law firm, oddly enough in a business complex not far away from where Poseidon lived.
"Do you have an appointment," the state of the art arrogant receptionist asked while I was regarding her cheap Botox injections making her face stiff and Barbie doll like.
"Yes we do," Poseidon replied. "Twelve 'o clock sharp. Mr. Said Waters and Miss Lola French. To see Mrs. Desdemona LaMaison. " As he spoke, I was feeling that well known vibration across my neck when someone was performing fine-tuned electro-magic manipulations nearby. Poseidon fixing with the booking schedule in the computer in front of Miss Arrogant.
"With Mrs. LaMaison, I don't seem to... hmmm... yes, sorry, Sir, here it is. Twelve o clock. Waters. And French. I'll buzz Mrs. LaMaison; let her know that you're here." After that she picked up an internal communication unit and talked into it for a few seconds, Then she paled a bit before saying:
