It had been a while since Nikola's latest adventure, and this had involved him going to aid the Viking part of the invasion force that the Ironheart Pact faction which he and his family were secretly affiliated with in their assault on their Luminous Covenant enemies. Thanks to his strategic expertise and the relentless nigh feral ferocity of his Viking allies, he was able to come out of said skirmish in a relatively unscathed way. Since then, during the period of respite that followed, Nikola had once again gotten back to attending to his duties towards his family and the associated business group as well as the associated multinational business conglomerate. These included things like attending business meetings, meeting other high society families, along with getting acquainted with their heir(s) and heiresses, overseeing as well as signing off on the developmental processes for new product lines, and so on.
Additionally, he had also gotten back to his usual ongoing and ever-burgeoning mad science research efforts during this time as well and in these endeavors and in the handling of his daily life routine, he was assisted as always by his trusted and exclusively personal, 6-unit strong, maid squad made up of monstergirls of all sorts, this squad also being his personal bodyguards in any combat situations too. So, in this manner, time marched on for him till present wherein he was relaxing in the company of said maid squad, with all of them currently lounging in recreation room section of his mansion in Crocus, the capital of Fiore which was his home base of operations. In this situation, Nikola and his maids had decided to start expanding their recreational horizons aka enjoying themselves via participating together in a slew of miscellaneous activities such as playing pool, vintage wine tasting, reading classical novels of various genres and so on in addition to simply watching the newest movie to be released in said room.
However, this peaceful setup of Nikola's and consequently his pleasure-filled mood was abruptly interrupted by the distinctive notification tone from his newly acquired “iLac” that he had set for any incoming job request notification and more recently, also for any other equally important notifications, that tone being the “Voices of War”, which was the exclusive and special DLC soundtrack given only to frequent players of one of his now most favorite iLac mobile game apps, namely “Oda Nobuna’s Ambition”, as noted by his head personal maid, “Jeanne”
"Master Eisenstein, it would seem that our merrymaking is to be put on hold for a while...for it would seem you have your next job in your magus work...though, it would be more apropos to call this a relaxing outing instead of an actual task..."
To that, Nikola nodded and remarked, albeit a tad reluctantly since attending these festivities would take him away from the pleasurable company of his maids for some time
"Indeed...Halloween season is upon us for this year, and I suppose I should avail myself of this opportunity while it is still present within my reach..."
However, regardless of how much he did not want to leave his beloved maid squad behind, he had no choice but to galvanize himself for leaving the pleasurable company being offered to him by his maids to attend to this, since even a workaholic like him still comprehended very well the importance of downtime, if only once in a blue moon. To that end, he addressed each of the members of his monstergirl maid squad in turn gently, as was his usual routine
"Ladies…though it pains me to leave your rather pleasurable company for attending to a triviality such as this…I am afraid it must be done, for in the eternal pursuit of my research, it is imperative that I have some variety to my leisure, so as to not dull the effect of said downtime...and so, I shall be attending this year's Halloween festival in our fair city of Crocus, albeit alone this time since you all have a lot of work to handle here at the estate in the meantime."
With that, Nikola gently disengaged himself from the company of his maids and after readying himself for whatever the festival had to offer and with the appropriate seasonal attire, this time his choice being himself as a mad scientist, he headed off to the event locale mentioned in the notification on his iLac. Little did he know that once there, he would be in the company of a rather intriguing character who would affect him profoundly afterwards.
