“This is a terrible idea.”
“Now ya both need to relax, especially you Van; yours is coming after this.”
Of all the inevitable things to happen in the world, this had been the last thing on Mythal -- or Vandrad’s -- mind’s. Given they were only a few weeks out from a very traumatic and sequence of events involving Mercury’s people, her enslavers and then the Dread Masters, it felt too soon to partake in something so frivolous and, frankly, dumb. Yet here they were, standing outside the guild hall of Lusty Titans, staring up at the well lit and loud structure with a mixture of annoyance, mild disgust and enthusiasm, the last bit being for Gren’s sake.
Mythal and Serilda had been engaged for almost two years at that point. While a long engagement hadn’t been in their plans, events had transpired on several different occasions, alongside their duties and responsibilities as heads of the Rune Knights, that had kept them from nailing down an official date for their wedding. It wasn’t much of a bother to Mythal; he was ready to get married whenever they could but he didn’t feel any pressure to hurry things up. Serilda’s family was fine with how things were going, as far as he understood, and were actually more than happy to have the twins to focus their attention on. With everything else that had happened in such a short amount of time, any kind of wedding-related topics had been the farthest thing from his mind, let alone anything involving a ‘bachelor’ party.
The Rune Knight Director didn’t have many male friends to start with. He’d been close with Markus for some time but the other Fairy Tail wizard had disappeared some time ago, with nary a trace or a reason for his departure. Since then, Mythal had played things rather close to the chest, at least in terms of making connections with people. He was satisfied with the amount of arm-length provided to him from his position, not allowing anyone within the Rune Knights to get too close or too friendly. Wren was, perhaps, the only one that he had connected with. Unfortunately Gren had learned about that particular connection and made sure to invite the young Rune Knight lad along as well. But upon learning that he had no best man nor plans for anything close to a bachelor party, Gren immediately began making plans for him, much to his chagrin.
Whatever the plans were, neither Mythal nor Vandrad had been made aware of them and they had come together really quickly. It seemed Serilda’s own bachelorette party was being put together for the same night and the two of them were whisked away from one another and told to get dressed in ‘their fanciest outfits’. Mythal didn’t have a whole lot of selection when it came to that so it was left to Gren to dress him. Put in a gray vest with red dressing, a light gray sleeveless shirt and a pair of slacks, Mythal looked more like a punk rock brat than anything else. He did his best to protest to the whole ordeal but his adoptive father was quick to shut him down and order him around.
When they arrived at Hosenka, they found Vandrad waiting outside. He was dressed to impress as well; with a white overcoat that acted more like a cape than anything else and a clean-cut stone gray sweater. He even had a pair of sunglasses that completed the look The former prince looked about as disinterested in the night as Mythal but, just like the Rune Knight, there wasn’t much he could do to escape.
“And you had to choose here of all places?” the Director asked, looking back at Gren.
The former Knight grinned. Gren hadn’t gone to any extravagant level of dressing up, putting on a clean white dress shirt with a red tie and some brown slacks. But he’d certainly taken the time to primp his beard and hair. “Of course. Ruzatz is the perfect guy for this kinda stuff. Besides, he is one of your friends.”
“Yes but Lusty Titans is a bit… uh… promiscuous,” Mythal tried to reason.
“Well I ain’t sure what kind of party you think you were gettin’ but that’s what a bachelor party is, son. Cuttin’ wild and free for one last night. But don’t worry; I ain’t gonna let you get into anythin’ too crazy. Think of this more like a guy’s bondin’ night, huh?”
A guys bonding night. Fantastic. Sighing dramatically, Mythal felt the heavy hand of his adoptive father on his back and soon he and Vandrad were being led up the short stone staircase to the front door. After planting his two sons in front of the barrier, the former Knight reached forward and rapped his knuckles against the frame. Only a moment later the door swung open, revealing the Prime Sin of Lust Ruzatz. Dressed in a full red suit and wiping off some lipstick from his cheek, his smile widened into a full grin at the party gathered before him. “Our main cast has arrived!” he exclaimed jubilantly before waving them in. “Come on in, boys. We’ve got one hell of a night planned for you!”
