Hazbin Hotel: The Million Year Old Sinner (Ch. 16)
The Million Year Old Sinner,[Chapter 16: New Day, New Problems], The Hazbin Hotel, Morning…Charlie rose from her bed, letting out a shrill yawn while stretching her arms out. Rubbing her eyes, the hotel owner pulled herself out of bed before sliding into a pair of slippers that laid beside her bed. She moved over to her dresser to brushed her hair and apply her make-up, but as she was getting ready for the day, Charlie glanced over to her bed. Normally, she'd find her girlfriend also slowly getting up to start the day with her, but last night's memories came flooding back. A saddened look took hold of her visage, however, she maintained herself by taking a deep breath and softly exhaling. Charlie was still willing to mend this whole situation and move on with her life in spite of everything that had happened.After a fresh application of lipstick, Charlie got up from her seat and made her way down to her bedroom door. She turned the handle and opened it only to met face to face with Oogar, who was knelt slightly so that he could meet the hotel owner at proper eye level. Charlie let out a startled yip, almost falling onto her back from the sudden appearance of the caveman. Clutching her racing and taking in wild frantic breaths, Charlie nearly keeled over onto her bed hadn't she caught herself with a single arm."Good morning, Charlie." Oogar greeted with a small wave while Charlie quickly fixed her hair, maintaining her composure."Oogar, when you want to talk to me while I'm in my room, please knock..." The Hotel Owner groaned while Oogar rubbed the back of his head with embarrassment. "And... were you standing there this whole time?""Err… Sorry… Oogar just wanted to talk to you." The caveman apologized before letting himself in, lowering his head and squeezing his shoulders together so that he could properly fit through the doorframe. The mammoth demon pulled himself a small cushion stool, one that was small yet sturdy enough to support his weight. Charlie let out a sigh before approaching the lumbering demon."It's okay, big guy. I was meaning to talk to you as well. Mainly from everything that happened last night..." Charlie said, gently placing a hand on the caveman's shoulder."Well… That's why Oogar is here..." The caveman said nodding his head, his eyes briefly darting away from his caretaker."Oogar was worried for Vaggie… Oogar didn't want to lose her… Vaggie is good to me and so are you… Oogar just wanted to help but Oogar only hurt you instead..." The mammoth demon continued, a somber sigh blowing through his shaggy beard. "Oogar just wanted to help Vaggie is all, Oogar sorry…""Oogar, look at me." She said, moving her hand onto his cheek before directing his head back to her with a gentle push of a hand."It's okay, I was just as worried as you. Heck, if I could, I would've done the same thing as you. However, it's important to know that you didn't have to go through all of this. You don't always have to intervene although, I am somewhat grateful that you did." Charlie explained to the best of her ability as the caveman tilted his head in confusion."Oogar don't understand... Did Oogar do good? Did he do bad?..." Oogar asked, raising a brow. Cupping her mouth for a few seconds, Charlie tried her best to conjure up a response."Well, that's the thing. I am not really sure what to really say about all this. There's, just, a lot to unpack here and I still might need more time to properly think things through here." Charlie replied."Okay... Oogar hope he didn't ruin Vaggie and Charlie's love." The Mammoth Demon muttered, a twinge of sadness could be heard in his tone."Hey, now don't you dare put yourself down like that! Do I agree with what Vaggie did? No. But am I going to leave her in the dust over it? Absolutely not! This isn't your fault, Oogar. It never was. " Charlie resoundingly proclaimed, a hopeful glimmer taking place in the hotel owner's eyes while she grabbed onto both wrists of the caveman, giving them a slightly strong grip that took Oogar by surprise."Vaggie and I been together through thick and thin for years. We're just going through a rough patch in our lives but we can make things right again. You don't have to worry about us, Oogar. But just remember that this is not your fault, okay?" Charlie reassured Oogar, softly brushing her hand up and down the caveman's arm as her fingers slid through his shaggy fur. In a few seconds, Oogar gave Charlie a brief hug. One that lifted her off the ground as the behemoth nuzzled against his caretaker's rosy cheeks."Okay, Charlie... Thank you..." Oogar said, getting a chuckle out of the hotel owner who promptly hugged him back."You're welcome, Oogar..." Charlie said before her eyes flicked down to the floor, realizing the caveman was suspending her several feet off the ground. Gazing back over to Oogar, who was still hugging his caretaker, Charlie managed an awkward chuckle."You can put me down now." The Hotel Owner giggled while Oogar opened his eyes and gently set Charlie back onto solid ground. The caveman proceeded patiently to clasp his hands together, awaiting further orders from his caretaker."Thank you, Oogar. Anyways, seeing as how you did sneak out in the middle of the night, I still believe that you need to be punished. How about... No leaving the hotel for a week?" Charlie proposed."Oogar fine with that." The caveman said, nodding his head while Charlie managed a small yet bright smile."Sounds great! Now then, why don't we get ready for the day?" She said with jubilance. However, before they could get started, a familiar voice suddenly chimed in."Hey… I hope I'm not interrupting anything." Oogar and Charlie both collectively turned their heads to the bedroom door, witnessing Vaggie anxiously waiting by the doorway as an uncomfortable silence took hold of the room. An indifferent expression surfaced on Charlie's face while Oogar nervously clasped his hands together as a way to act naturally. After what seemed like an unending silence, Hell's Princess spoke up."Oogar, I want you to leave us for the time being." Charlie calmly instructed. The caveman was about to object, but after talking with his caretaker, he merely closed his eyes and nodded. Vaggie stepped to the side to allow the mammoth demon to exit the bedroom, as he left the two demonesses to their own devices. The Hotel Manager watched as Oogar trudged off to his own devices before turning her attention back to Charlie, letting out a gentle exhale to keep herself at ease."Alright, I'm ready to talk. Are you?" Vaggie asked."Yeah, but not here. How about we discuss matters in the kitchen. What do you think about that?" Charlie suggested."Sounds fine by me. Oh, and just for the record, Husk is passed out in the hallway... Again." Vaggie replied before suddenly, an enraged shout from the alcoholic doorman could be heard just down the hall."FOR FUCK'S SAKES! LET ME THE FUCK GO, YOU PALEOLITHIC ASSHOLE!" Husk growled with contempt before the baritone voice of Oogar rang out."But Kitty looked cold! Oogar make you warm, Kitty like warmth!" Oogar said, followed by the sounds of the winged demon struggling to escape the caveman's embrace."Well, Kitty doesn't like it when an overgrown carpet rudely wakes him up from his-OOOOUHG! FUCK!" Husk shouted while a faint crackling noise could be heard. Both Charlie and Vaggie's eyes widened with horror as they slowly looked at each other."I'm gonna go make sure he doesn't hurt him..." Vaggie plainly said before rushing off to break up the two."Ditto!" Charlie replied, promptly following her girlfriend to make sure that Oogar didn't snap Husk's spine in half or get an eye scratched out., The Hotel Kitchen, Ten Minutes Later...Vaggie took a good sip of her coffee before placing it back onto the table before wiping her lips off any excess liquid with her sleeve. She looked up from her mug to see Charlie taking a seat right across from her before she began to scarf down her breakfast."Okay, so…" Vaggie said, glancing off to the side while nervously tapping a finger onto the table. She looked over at Charlie, who had a fried egg dangling from her mouth."What is it?" Charlie said with her mouth slightly muffled from the egg in her mouth as she slurped it up as if it were a spaghetti noodle."I was just about to say that is there anything else you want to know first? You know… about the-""About the fact that you have been moonlighting as a luchador for the past month or so without any of my knowledge nor consent? I may have a couple of questions." Charlie interrupted, raising a brow while a slight smirk could be made out on her features. Vaggie's cheeks began to blush bright red while a cold sweat ran down her neck all the way down to her back."Err… Ask away." Vaggie muttered before taking a quick sip of coffee."Well, first and foremost. How did you get into this gig?" Charlie asked."Simple. There was an ad in the paper and we desperately needed money to pay for the expenses. Our options were growing more and more sparse and I jumped at the chance. Of course, I was never proud of that choice but that's how things are here in Hell…" Vaggie explained as her girlfriend finished up the rest of her breakfast."Vaggie, I know you mean well but you remember what I told you last night right? You should never hurt yourself because of me or our problems. It'll just make things more harder than they should…" Charlie said, reaching over to gently grab ahold of Vaggie's wrist. The Hispanic Demoness looked down at her lover's hand before managing a saddened sigh."I know, Charlie… I know." She said before pulling her hand back, craning her neck up to face Charlie."But even then, we're still stuck in a rut since the hotel hasn't been getting many visitors. All of our other attempts to appeal to an audience have gone nowhere and most of our advertisements have been ignored or laughed at. Those posters we put out got vandalized, our website got hacked by playing some of Angel's porno, and let's not forget all that shit we had to deal with that greasy, backwoods shitbag…" Vaggie went on a tirade of all the misfortunes that she and Charlie had to go through during their attempts to get the hotel off the ground."It's just been so hard to get even a slight bit of traction without a massive setback getting in the way. And because of this, expenses are just so hard to pay up when we aren't raking in any visitors." The Hotel Manager quietly lamented. "I really wish it didn't have to come to this but I had no other choice.""It's gonna be okay, Vaggie. We can get through this but promise me you won't ever hurt yourself for sake of me? It's something that I never wanted to begin with…"Charlie pleaded while Vaggie looked into her lover's eyes. She could see a clear look of worry that was impossible to break away from as Vaggie tensed a little but swallowed her fear and gave her response."I promise, Charlie." She said compassionately. Charlie smiled, she could already tell that Vaggie was genuine in response just from her expression and voice alone."Alright, I trust you... Now then, I've been thinking for a while and I might have just the idea that could help us out of this rut." Charlie said, prompting Vaggie to raise a brow."You do? Well, can you tell me what it is?" The Hispanic Demoness asked with curiosity."Well, you know that I am from royalty right? I believe the best course of action is to simply ask my parents for an allowance!" The Hotel Owner suggested, her proposal getting a gasp out of her lover."Are you sure about that, hon? Even after your dad, you know... Said all that stuff to you?" Vaggie anxiously said while Charlie froze for a moment and took her girlfriend's words into consideration, bringing her hand up to her mouth while lightly biting down onto her index finger."...I'll tell you what, I'll call my mom first. If she says no then we'll simply try to think of something else. How does sound?" Hell's Princess suggested."Well... I suppose it's worth a shot." Vaggie replied as Charlie pulled out her cellphone, switching it on with a click of the home key."Okay, here goes nothing..." Charlie said to herself, looking down at her phone with a hardened expression. After punching in a few numbers, she brought the phone up to her ear and waited for a response. Vaggie kept quiet, making sure that After a solid minute or two, the call is answered as Lilith's silk voice buzzed through the phone speakers."Charlie, my darling! Hello, I wasn't expecting a call from you." Lilith greeted through the phone while a small smile formed on her face."Hey, mom! I know it's been a while but I figured I could call you about something, how are you today?" Charlie replied."Your father and I are doing quite well. We've been busy as always and your father got into a fight with a flock of geese at the park that led to a small-scale war, however..." Charlie's mother mumbled a bit with a hint of annoyance."Oh, well, you know how they are..." Hell's Princess said before glancing over to a framed photo that depicted her father dressed in military clothing, holding a saber as he proudly stood in front of the carcass of a gigantic goose-like demon."Well, besides all that nonsense, we're doing quite well. Although, what is it you want to discuss my darling?" Lilith inquired."Yeah, it's mainly about the hotel..." Charlie said, a bit of hesitance in her voice. "Now don't get the wrong idea, we've been working hard and we're still doing our best to keep the hotel up and running but the problem is we haven't been doing good, financially speaking, so I was wondering if you and dad could...""Give you an allowance?" Lilith interrupted, catching her daughter off guard."Well... uh... Yeah, pretty much." Charlie said, her stomach tensing up a bit from the anticipation of her mother's answer."Hm, well... I suppose I can make a few arrangements for that. It may take some time but we can work something out to make that happen." Lilith said, the hotel owner's eyes widening with surprise from the response."R-really? You'd be willing to do that?" Charlie said with bewilderment."Of course, my darling. Anything for my sweet princess!" Charlie's mother replied, getting an excited squeal out of her."Thank you SO much for this, mom! You are the best!" The Hotel Owner exclaimed with exuberance, bouncing a little out of sheer joy."Hm? What was that dear? Oh, I'm speaking to our daughter." Lilith said, Charlie abruptly stopping as she raised a brow in confusion."Mom? Are you there?" Charlie asked, she swore she could have heard a familiar voice calling out in the background."My apologies, my dear! I was talking to your father, he says he wants to speak with you." Charlie's mother spoke, the mention of her father made her own heart practically skip a beat."Oh, well... I suppose I could, it's been a while." Charlie said anxiously."Very well then, I'll hand it over to him now. He's being very impatient about it..." Lilith said with a hint of exasperation present in her voice, Lucifer's voice could be heard in the background, demanding Lilith to hand over the phone to him. After a few seconds of silence, the lively voice of Charlie's father suddenly buzzed through the speakers."Charlier, dearest! Apple of my eye!" Lucifer exclaimed, the sudden announcement spooking Charlie as she nearly dropped her phone."Hehe... Hey, dad!" Charlie replied with a nervous chuckle."Now, how is my apple pie doing?" Lucifer inquired, Charlie could almost see her father's usual toothy smirk from the other end."I'm doing good, dad. How's the geese problem going for you by the way?""Oh, no need to worry my dearest! Those feathery maniacs now know where to take refuge in..." Lucifer growled menacingly before snapping back to his bright attitude in a split second. "But enough about that, yes? Any new word with that little project of yours?""As for the hotel, well... Things may be a bit slow but we're still manag-""Haha! Charlie, dearest, just say it's unsuccessful! There is no need to sugarcoat any of this, is there now?" Lucifer said with a snooty laugh while Charlie's small smile deteriorated into a frown."Heh... Y-yeah." Charlie muttered with defeat, her shoulders and arms drooping down before bringing the phone right back up to her ear."Anyways, what are you calling us for?" Charlie's father inquired."I'm just calling to ask if I could have an allowance from this. After all, mom did agree to help me out. I was wondering if you could also help if that's okay with you." Charlie said, only to be met with another chuckle from her father."Now, now. Charlie, I love you, but I'm not sure if I could do such a thing. After all, you know how I feel about your little project, correct?" Lucifer said, getting a saddened sigh from his daughter."I... I know dad..." Charlie muttered in response."Exactly, which is why I won't-YEOWCH! LILITH, LET GO!" Lucifer shrieked with pain, the voice of his wife nagging him could be audible through Charlie's phone."I don't care what your views are on the hotel. You are helping your daughter and that is final!" Lilith scolded before promptly leaving, the sound of her heels clicking against the marble floor could be heard, followed by the faint slam of the door."Uragh... Okay, well, I suppose I could lend a helping hand. Considering how much your mother loves twisting my arms and the fact that you are indeed my one and only daughter.""Thank you so much, Dad! I'm so glad you were able to understand even if it did take mom screaming her head off at you." Charlie said with a slight giggle."Right, right... Oh, wait! Before you hang up, there's something I want to tell you. It's been quite some time since I've last met up with you and I wondering..." Lucifer said, pausing for a brief moment."What is it, dad?" Charlie asked, raising a brow."Well, since I took care of those feathery cunts and I don't really have anywhere else to be... Would it be alright with you if I came over to the hotel to pay you a visit? We could discuss further on this allowance too!" Lucifer replied, his very request making her heart practically skip a beat. This came right out of the blue for the hotel owner, made worse by the fact that she had never told him about Oogar or the fact that she was working with Alastor of all demons. Her whole body frozen in place as the grip around her phone lessened greatly, resulting in it falling onto the floor."Charlie, is everything alright?" Lucifer's voice buzzed into her ear, snapping her right back to reality. Picking up the phone immediately, Charlie answered her father's request."Oh, I am perfectly fine dad! And uh... Yeah! You can come over! I have no qualms with you coming over at all!" Charlie said, sporting a fake smile while a bead of sweat dripping from her brow."Ah, thank you my apple pie! I'll drop in at around, say... two or three hours? Until then, I look forward to our little rendezvous!" Lucifer said with enthusiasm."Right, see ya!" Charlie replied before subsequently ending the call. Almost immediately after hanging up, the hotel owner's smile turned upside down as she slumped onto her chair and covered her face."Oh shit..." She peeped while Vaggie poked her head through the doorway as her heart suddenly raced with worry. Knowing that something was wrong, the hotel manager ran over to her lover before kneeling down slightly, placing a hand on her shoulder."Charlie, what's wrong? Did she say no? Did your dad hear about this?" Vaggie bombarded Charlie with a series of questions. The Hotel Owner responded with a weak whimper before conjuring up a sentence."Well... Yes and no..." Charlie murmured."Okay?... What do you even mean by that?" Vaggie inquired, raising a brow at his response. Charlie took a deep breath, collecting herself to better manage her response."You see... My parents DID agree on giving me an allowance but my dad told me that he'll be visiting me in less than a couple of hours." Charlie replied with dread, removing her hands from her face to reveal a fearful expression molded onto her visage."What!?" She exclaimed, widening her eyes while the same level of tension as her girlfriend began to take form inside of her stomach."Oh, this is terrible, Vaggie! Not only does he have no idea about Oogar but that I'm also working with the Radio Demon! I mean, I love him and everything but I don't want him to hurt you, Oogar, Angel, or anyone else..." She whimpered, placing her hands onto her forehead, concealing her frown."It's gonna be okay, hon. You said that he won't be here for at least a few hours so we'll have to think of a plan is all." Vaggie said before an idea suddenly came to the hotel manager's mind."Wait, I might have an idea. Remember that list of errands we said we'd be doing today?" Vaggie said as Charlie looked up to her girlfriend."Y-yeah? What about them?" She asked."Well, I was thinking that I could not only do them myself while you talk with your dad, but maybe I could bring everyone else with me." Vaggie offered."That way, you won't have to worry about us getting in the way and it'll also mean much less work for you to do. What do you think?" The Hispanic Demoness continued her proposal, a sensation of uncertainty and doubt began to cloud Charlie's judgment."I-I don't know, Vaggie. I'm not sure if I can fully trust you on that, especially after everything that happened last night. Besides, I told Oogar that he couldn't leave the hotel for at least a week." Charlie said, unsure of her girlfriend's plan."Look, why don't we take this outside in the courtyard and see where go from there. We still got time to work things out. What do you say to that?" Vaggie continued to push for her idea, hoping that the hotel owner and her would come to an understanding before Lucifer's arrival."Well… Okay, I suppose we could. Though let me finish breakfast real quick." Hell's Princess said, getting off from her chair before haphazardly shoving a piece of toast right into her mouth. Resulting in crumbs and smatters of jam staining her lips while Vaggie scooted back a little from the sudden ravenous gorging. Charlie, who still had the toast crumbled up in her mouth, looked at Vaggie with a blank expression."Alright, let's go." She said with her mouth still full before leaving the kitchen. Vaggie simply shrugged and took one quick swig of coffee before following after her girlfriend. To discuss more on the matters, hoping that things would go right this time around., The Hotel Lounge, Two Hours Later..."Who is mama's widdle squishy bun? Who's a widdle squishy bun bun? You! That's who it is!~" Angel said with exuberance as he gave Fat Nuggets a series of pets as the swine rolled onto his back, exposing his chubby underbelly. This prompted the spider demon to gently scratch his pet pig's gut, the little swine emitting joyful squeals while happily wiggling its stubby body around. Angel looked down upon his piggy companion with a bright smile before grabbing onto both sides of the pig, lifting Fat Nuggets right off the ground with his upper set of arms as the swine's hooves comically dangled in the air."Oh, Fat Nuggets, you complete me you little ball of squee~" Angel said with a sigh of content, resting against the couch's back pillows before pulling the little piggy in for a warm embrace. He smooshed his cheek against Fat Nugget's, showering his pet with a dozen kisses which got a jubilant squeal from the swine. As he was coodling his pet pig, Angel perked his head up when he heard a familiar voice that sounded like the raspy, baritone of Husk."Look, just take me to my workstation. Make sure nobody sees us…" The winged demon grumbled as both he and Oogar came into the room, the former of whom was rested in the caveman's muscular arms. However, the prehistoric demon stopped dead in his tracks when he came into Angel's line of sight while Husk spins his head to see the spider demon, who looked like he was about to burst from holding in so much laughter."…Aw fuck, Caveman, pick up the pace." The doorman said, his face becoming noticeably red before his ears were treated to Angel's shrill laughter that forced the cat demon to cock his head into Oogar's hairy chest to hide from the embarrassment. However, before Oogar could take Husk to the hotel bar, Fat Nuggets sprung out of Angel's arms and scampered over to the mammoth demon, prompting the caveman to lower himself to properly meet the swine at eye level while still holding onto Husk."Hello Piggy!" Oogar happily greeted before feeling the cat tug onto his shoulder fur."Hey, quit starin' at that fuckin' pig and get me to the bar, you cave-dwelling shithead!" Husk snarled with rage."But Oogar want to say hello to friend!" Oogar whined before hearing Angel call out to him with a whistle."Yo, Oogar. Trade ya!" Angel beckoned, prompting the caveman to walk over to the spider demon, much to Husk's ire as he screamed his head off at Oogar telling him not to, obscenities and insults included. However, Husk was unable to berate himself out of this one as the caveman dropped the feline right into the spider's lower-set of arms as Angel glanced over to Husk with a cheeky smile etched on his face."Awwwww, now what do we have here? A stray, widdle putty tat?~" The slutty spider jeered, skidding a finger across Husk's fluffy cheek as feline demon hissed at the pornstar, slapping his hand away before hopping off of the spider demon's lap."Great, one furry ass clown to the next…" Husk growled before stomping over to a door that was situated by the corner of the room. He reached over to the door handle and grabbed onto it, not before glancing over to both Oogar and Angel with an irate glower."If any of you shitbags bother me while I'm working, I will tear off your arms and shove 'em up your ass…" The doorman snarled, pointing a claw at the two demons. Oogar let out a scared grunt, taking a step back before grabbing onto Fat Nuggets, holding him close like if he was holding a teddy bear. Angel, however, was unmoved by the threat as he scoffed and folded all four of his arms."Eeeh… I dunno about that, Huskykins. Although there is another place you can shove it~" Angel said with a laugh while Oogar glanced over to the swine he held with a look of confusion."What Angel mean by that?" The caveman said to the pig, who merely emitted an adorable snort as it nudged its cheek against Oogar's fluffy chest."Angel is silly, Piggy." Oogar continued to talk with the swine while the winged demon rolled his eyes and gave a ragged sigh of annoyance before pulling the door open… Only for it to suddenly swing open resulting in the door slamming into as it bashed him right into a wall."AUGH! MY LIVER!… If it was still intact…" Husk yelped with a pained growl while Fat Nuggets let out a fearful squeal before fearfully hiding his face in the caveman's fur, prompting him to keep him closer so that the swine wouldn't fall from his embrace. Niffty suddenly stepped into the lounge with a gleaming, elated grin plastered onto her face. Instead of her usual outfit, Niffty wore a vibrant red dress that was adorned with various flower patterns and in her hands, she held a box that was twice her size."HELLOOOOOO! GUESS WHAT I GOOOOT!~" The Cyclopean Maid happily cheered as the one-eyed cleaning lady happily skipped her way to the center of the room, showing a surpassingly display of agility as she gracefully whisked herself through the room despite carrying a relatively heavy box. She even threw it up in the air to perform a ballerina spin, suddenly stopping in place with her arms raised in the air. The box came falling down on her, but the cyclopean was more than ready as she caught by both sides by clapping her hands together."You know, you could have just walked in. This ain't theatre y'know." Angel said with deadpanned annoyance."Well if there's one thing I like besides cleaning, stargazing, and rat slaying, it's attention…" Suddenly, she dashed over to Angel at lightning-fast speeds that caught the spider demon off guard. The Pornstar was grabbed by the collar of his shirt and was pulled in, being met face to face with Niffty, whose pupil shrunk to the size of a pea while her vibrant grin transformed into a cold and still smile that hid an inner murderous rage."And you better believe that when I need, I fucking get it..." Niffty said unnervingly, a faint twinge of blood hunger present in her tone. Angel reeled his head back, sweat started to trickle down his brow as he anxiously gulped."O-okay…" Angel nervously muttered, hoping that he wouldn't end up with his throat being sliced open. Niffty narrowed her singular eye before pointing two of her fingers in a V-sign at hers before pointing them at Angel, while slowly backing away from him as the spider demon felt as though his soul was violated by the cyclopean's glare.The Cleaning Lady suddenly zipped right back over to the box, which was being analyzed by Oogar, inquisitive to what the contents could be. However, the box was suddenly snatched out of the caveman's grasp as Niffty held it high over her head."It's something I have been working on for the past few days and now I am finally finished!" Niffty squealed with excitement while Husk pushed the door aside, his cheek now sporting a noticeable bruise while his hat fell from his head."I don't know what it is that you made but it better be worth the spine fracture…" Husk growled, awkwardly stumbling around towards the cyclopean. The Winged Demon, unable to maintain his balance, tripped forward only for Oogar to stop his fall by putting his forearm right in front of the feline. Husk stumbled back onto his feet, glancing over to the caveman."Errr… Thanks." The Doorman apologized with a hint of embarrassment in his voice. Opening the box, Niffty pulled out an enormous red vest, one that looked big enough to fit Oogar, as she presented it before the three demons with enthusiasm."Ta-Da!~" The cyclopean maid announced as the caveman gasped with surprise, putting both his hands onto his cheeks as he gazed at the vest with astonishment while Angel and Husk looked relatively unimpressed."Woooah… It a thing!" The Mammoth Demon exclaimed while a jubilant glow started to shimmer in his widened eyes."It's a vest, Oogar! And it's all for you!~" Niffty said before throwing the vest over to the caveman. Oogar reach forward and snatched the vest out of the air, giving it a closer inspection with the red vest with eagerness. The very idea of wearing new-aged garments, some of which weren't even made from animal hides, was more than enough to make the caveman overly giddy. Oogar thew on the waistcoat, his muscular arms passing through the armhole. The caveman admired the way he looked in the vest though Husk and Angel didn't see it as much of a big deal."Okay, cool. The caveman gets a new outfit. Now if you excuse me, I gotta go forget tod-AUUUGH!" Husk tried to leave the room only to be grabbed by the scruff of his neck by his co-worker."Not so fast! Oogar's not the only one getting an outfit..." She said, pulling Husk back before rummaging through the box while the feline demon rubbed the back of his neck in pain. After a good minute of searching, the cleaning lady withdrew a stylish pair of black-and-red plaid slacks, complete with a pair of suspenders. Niffty handed them over to Husk, who gave the trousers a glance before looking back at the cyclopean demon, who was bouncing up and down in anticipation for Husk to try on the new garments."Yeah, nah. I'm not wearing this..." Husk muttered before tossing them back to Niffty, whose smile turned upside down in a split second. Her eye began to tear up and her lips started to quiver as she gave the feline demon a pleading, puppy dog-eyed look."Pweeeeeease Husk..." The Cyclopean whined, though even with her best efforts of coaxing Husk into wearing the slacks, the feline was unmoved."Niffty, how long have we known each other for?..." The Alcoholic Gambler asked, folding his arms and raising a brow."Uh... Over forty years?" Niffty answered."Correct. Now count how many times has that little trick of yours worked on me?" Husk continued with another question while Niffty began to count her fingers."One... Two... Never?""Good, now do the math." The Feline said, prompting a defeated sigh from the smaller demon."Okay, okay... Well, I guess there's nothing left for me to do other than TO FORCE YOU TO WEAR IT! YIAAAAAAAH!" Niffty lunged at Husk, tackling him to the ground in an attempt to subdue him so that he could wear the slacks. Husk growled with anger, trying to push the cyclopean off of him. Upon seeing the two demons fighting, Oogar immediately ran in to break up the sudden scuffle."Hey! No fight!" Oogar yelped, running into the kerfuffle while Angel casually watched the chaos unfold before his eyes as he let out a snarky chuckle before pulling out his phone."Hey! Yes fight!" The Slutty Spider cackled, recording the fracas for some sweet, euphoric internet clout. During the disruptive skirmish, a big cloud of smoke took shape while the sounds of punches being thrown, cat hisses, guttural roars, and high-pitched screeches could be heard throughout the room. While Angel's upper arms were busy filming the demons kill each other, his lower set dug into the box that Niffty left unattended. The spider pulled out a dark purple long-sleeved crop top that adorned a hot pink, spider-web pattern along with a short skirt with matching colors."Ooooh, you know what... This would totally look good on me~" Angel chuckled to himself, continuing to film the chaotic scuffle. Right before things could escalate any further, Vaggie came into the room just in time. Upon seeing the skirmish, she instinctively ran over to the three demons."Hey, hey! Break it up, all of you!" Vaggie scolded as the dust finally settled, revealing Niffty chewing on Husk's ankles while Oogar was holding onto one of her legs. All three looked at the hotel manager and quickly let go of each other, Oogar and Niffty held their hands behind their backs as a way to appear normal while Husk laid on the floor disoriented, covered in scuff marks and bruises."Uh... He started it!" Niffty shouted, pointing a finger at Husk."Wh-what!? No! You attacked me first!" Husk snarled back, shooting back up with a hateful glare towards his one-eyed coworker."Oh yeah? Well, YOU denied the pants and who's fault is that? Definitely not mine!" The Cyclopean Maid declared."I don't care, who started it. I need all of you to quit dicking around, there's something I need to tell you all." Vaggie demanded."Look, Vaggie, Oogar wear clothes like you!" The caveman said, showing off his vest to his caretaker. The Hispanic Demoness took a quick look at Oogar and his new waistcoat, raising her brows sightly."Huh, nice vest. Anyways, Charlie's dad is coming over very soon, and for the sake of our safety, we'll have to leave the hotel to do some errands while Charlie is occupied with her dad." Vaggie explained the best way she could."Wait, wait... Charlie's Dad?... As in King Lucifer himself? Well shit, I'm lucky to still be sober." Husk asked."Wooooah... I've never met him in person before! I soooooo wanna clean his hat...~" Niffty creepily said with a toothy grin."Oooh, you know I never rubbed elbows royalty before. Heh, elbows won't be the only thing I'll be rubbin~" Angel joked, laughing at his own joke while Vaggie groaned with exasperation."Lou...see...fur? Who Lou and what fur he seeing?" Oogar questioned, scratching the top of his head. Vaggie couldn't help but pinch the bridge of her nose whilst letting out a frustrated sigh."Look, this is why I need all of you to help me with errands. Charlie may be willing to put up with us but I doubt the same can be said for Lucifer. I doubt he'll... look favorably upon us to put it simply. Especially Alastor..." Vaggie said, before realizing that the Radio Demon was nowhere in sight. "Speaking of which, where is he?""Oh, he's taking his Friday walk around town," Niffty answered. "Although, I dunno what he's up to.""Something stupid or downright horrible, I'm sure." Husk interjected., Pentagram City, Vox Enterprises...Sitting by his desk with the newspaper in hand, Vox skimmed through the papers with a look of boredom etched onto his screen. The TV Demon reached over to a nearby coffee mug and took a sip from it, expecting his tastebuds to be greeted with the sweet tang of his coffee. Instead, his mouth was assaulted with the metallic flavor of blood that forced Vox to do a spit-take."BLARGH! Velvet, did you swap my coffee with blood!?" Vox shouted, glaring at his younger acquaintance, who was sitting just a few feet away from him on a stool."Nah. Wasn't me." A doll-like demon dressed in a maroon and white dress plainly said, not looking up from her phone as her eyes were glued to the screen."Don't bullshit me! I know someone as insane as you would pull some kind of inane stunt like this!" Vox snarled, slamming a fist onto his desk that caused a small burst of electricity."Look, I know it's something that I would one-hundred percent do. But I actually didn't it! 'Specially not with you, I'd do that shit to Val!" Velvet tried to make her case but Vox wasn't buying it as he stormed off to confront her."I'll show you for fucking with me!" Vox growled, pulling his sleeves as an electric aura began to envelop his hands. Looking up from her phone to see her friend approaching her, Velvet gulped nervously before narrowly avoiding a blast of electricity. Velvet sprinted in the opposite direction while The TV Demon gave chase, zapping away at his acquaintance in a fit of rage.Meanwhile, at a park that was just a few blocks down, Alastor casually rested on one of the park benches. The Radio Demon took in the scenery, enjoying his moment of tranquility when suddenly his fork-like antlers began to pick up something that made Alastor perk his head up."Haha! What a fool." Alastor chuckled to himself, taking a sip from a coffee mug with a light blue 'V' imprinted on the porcelain. "Hmm... Strange how he likes his coffee sweet when there's nothing sweet about him.", Back to the Hotel..."Okay, well that's the least of our worries... I hope." Vaggie said, shuddering a bit at the thought of Alastor out and about doing something undoubtedly despicable."Anyways, I know some of you won't be willing to comply..." The Hotel Manager took a quick glance at both Angel and Husk. "So, Charlie and I pulled some strings to make sure that you had no choice but to tag along. Angel, we locked away your... toys... and you can't have them until the end of the day.""Heh, jokes on you, I got my back-ups right he-" Angel reaches into the pocket of his blazer only to realize that they were empty. The Spider Demon's eyes widened with realization while Vaggie smirked, folding her arms in a cocksure manner."Yeah, don't think we didn't come prepared for this." She said while Angel furrowed his brows and glared at the Hispanic demoness."Oh, you bitches are playing foul..." Angel snarled, only for Vaggie to simply ignore him as she turned her attention to Husk."As for you, Husk, we took away your-" The Hotel Manager felt Husk's paw grab a hold of her shirt collar as she pulled forward, being met with Husk, who sported an enraged scowl."YOU BITCH! YOU THINK YOU CAN TAKE AWAY MY SCRATCHING POST AND GET AWAY WITH IT!" The Winged Demon roared at the top of his lungs, shaking Vaggie a bit."N-No... We took away your booze." The Hispanic Demoness said in a deadpan tone while Husk's grimace disappeared, being replaced with an awkward expression of embarrassment."Oh. Well, uh... That's bad too I guess." He said with a shrug."Yeah, you can let go of me now..." Vaggie replied, prompting Husk to remove his paws off of her as he muttered a barely audible apology."Wait, Vaggie…" Oogar said to his caretaker, cautiously approaching by her while wringing his enormous hands together. "Charlie said Oogar not allowed to leave hotel for five suns and moons…""I was just about to get to that, Oogar. Charlie and I had decided that as long as you stay out of trouble and don't listen to anything Angel tells you to do, we will shorten your punishment to half a week." Vaggie explained"Hey, my advice to 'em ain't that bad!" Angel chipped in."Angel, you told him to crush a car because you were bored." Vaggie replied, glaring at the spider demon."Well even then, he refused to do it because he thought that damn thing was alive!" The Slutty Spider exclaimed."Oogar didn't want to hurt the metal horse. It was sleeping and not hurting anybody. Vaggie and Charlie also tell Oogar not to hurt them too!" Oogar cried out, the thought of destroying a metal horse for no reason gave him a sick feeling in his stomach for hurting such odd yet majestic creatures."You're on the right path, Oogar." Vaggie said with reassurance, giving the caveman a small yet warm smile. Angel, meanwhile, couldn't help but manage a sigh of annoyance, bringing the palm of his hand up to his face."Ugh… You're such a mammoni! Well, anyway, I'll be taking a shower if ya need me." Angel said, walking off to the nearby exit while Fat Nuggets gave Oogar a snout boop on his shin before waddling off to his owner. Before he left, Angel muttered something under his breath."I swear, that caveman is a total mama's boy for those broads.""I heard that…" Vaggie said before following the spider demon, leaving the room alongside him and his pet pig. "Remember, Lucifer is coming in an hour so you had better make it a quick one.""Awww man, I SO wanted to clean Lucifer's hat… Husk, can I-""No." Husk gave a curt response while the cyclopean's stare turning glassy for a brief second."So… you refuted the pants and now you don't want me to clean your hat?…" Niffty said in a menacing tone, slowly but surely drawing a large needle from her skirt pocket. Husk, picking up on what was about to happen, made a beeline towards the door."Oh fuck this!" He shouted. In a split second, Niffty chased after the alcoholic doorman in hot pursuit."I WILL NEUTER YOU FOR YOUR CRIMES, CAT! YOU HEAR ME, NEUTER YOUUUUU!" Niffty screeched at the top of her lungs, leaving Oogar to be the only one occupying the lounge. He figured that with nothing else better to do, he would follow the group and hopefully prevent Niffty from turning Husk into a taxidermy trophy. Right before he left the room, he remembered what Angel said to him before he departed as a thought began to stir inside of the caveman's dome."Vaggie is… Mama?", Forty Minutes Later...The sound of running water could be heard behind the bathroom door while Husk waited outside, sporting the black slacks and suspenders that was a way to get Niffty off of his back. The feline demon tapped his foot impatiently before quickly checking his watch, it was currently eleven forty and Lucifer would be waltzing through the door by noon. Growling with annoyance, Husk looked up from his watch and called out to Angel."Hey, Spider-Slut! It's been forty fuckin' minutes! Get 'yer ass out here now, we don't got much time." Husk demanded, furiously pounding at the door."I already told you, Stronzo! I am almost done!" Angel's shrill voice shouted back, his voice sounding slightly muddled thanks to the shower running."Well, You've been 'almost done' for the past forty minutes!" The feline growled with exasperation."Look, my fur needs special treatment alright? Otherwise, it's gonna look all matted and shit. Why else do you think I stockpiled on all that shampoo?" Angel said from behind the bathroom door."You mean the twenty bottles you bought with Vaggie's card as she chewed your ears off on an ear-blistering rant? Yeah, that was certainly fun for the whole entire hotel to hear. Even booze couldn't dull out the damn screeching..." The Winged Demon said, recalling the unpleasant experience of hearing Vaggie screaming like a banshee in the night."Hey, it's not my fault. I have shit spending habits is all!" The Pornstar exclaimed."Yeah, that's pretty sure that's your fault. Don't 'cha think?" Husk growled, folding his arms in response. Just then, Husk's ears twitched the sound of shoes clicking against the wooden floorboards before Vaggie's voice filled his ears."What are you two bickering about now and is Angel out of the shower now?" Vaggie impatiently asked."Apparently not..." Husk said turning around, his eyes widening upon seeing the Hispanic Demoness, who was decked out in a new outfit. A red, unbuttoned shirt revealed a black undershirt beneath, both of which were tucked in a thick leather belt that was wrapped around her waist that supported a pair of striped leggings."Huh... That's a new look for ya." Husk said."Oh yeah, I figured I could use a change every once and a while." She said before approaching the bathroom door while Husk took a step to the side. "You go look for Niffty, I'll handle this.""Tch. Good luck, hope you got some eye bleach on hand." Husk muttered, leaving Vaggie to deal with the pornstar."Angel, get out of there right this second. You were supposed to be ready by now!" The Hispanic Demoness scolded, banging onto the door."Can everyone single one of you be patient already?!" Angel bleated with annoyance."If you don't come out there then maybe I'll just have to keep your toys locked for a couple of days?" She said, putting her hands onto her hips. She could an irritable groan coming from behind the door along with the shower being turned off. In less than a few seconds, the door suddenly swung open as Angel came trudging out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around his waist while his fur was seeping water onto the carpeted floor."You are a cold bitch, y'know that?..." He grumbled before marching over to his room, leaving behind a noticeable wet trail."At least dry off first!" She yelled with frustration, though her answer came in the response with a middle finger from the spider demon. The gesture simply made Vaggie roll her eyes in annoyance before walking off to find Charlie.On the flip side, Oogar was currently getting ready for his outing though he made sure to back the necessary items in case something were to go array. Stuffing into his furry chest was a stone club and the chain hook that he had used against Chugg all those months ago while Niffty looked on with a smile, resting on the bed."Oh, hey! Just in case you're tired of whacking people and want to stab them, have this!" Niffty said, handing Oogar an abnormally-sized bowie knife. Taking it out of her hands, the caveman gave the knife a good inspection before stuffing it into his hide."Oogar will take it. Just in case." The caveman said with a nod."Awesome, feel free to keep that by the way! I got a whole ensemble of stabby weapons that I either stole or Alastor gave to me!" She happily said before drawing out a claymore from out of nowhere."They never suspect the cleaning lady, do they...?" Niffty said with a devilish smile, stroking the edge of the blade in an unsettling manner. Oogar couldn't help but feel a bit unnerved by his friend but nonetheless, he packed everything he needed in his hide before walking out of the room with Niffty following shortly after."Alright ya pukes, let's get this shitshow on the road." Husk said unenthusiastically, putting his hands into the pockets of his slacks. Upon the realization that Husk was now wearing the garments that she had spent all night sewing together."Y-you're wearing the pants! YOU REALLY DO CARE!" She cried out with tears of joy, sprinting over to Husk as she gave him a big hug around the legs."Well, that coupled with the fact that I didn't want you to skin me alive..." Husk sighed with annoyance lifting a leg to shake Niffty off of him. Oogar continued forward while Husk had no other option but to follow while dragging Niffty along with him. Making it to the hotel lobby, they were met with Angel Dust, also decked out in the clothing Niffty provided him with, resting against the walls."Sup fellas, dig the new threads?~" Angel said, extending a leg out to better show off his outfit as the miniskirt brushed up against his thigh. In response, the alcoholic doorman groaned with annoyance."Well, you look less trashy for one thing." Husk remarked, before finally getting Niffty off of his legs. Angel couldn't help but smirk at Husk's remark before approaching him, swaying his hips side to side with each step he took before caressing the cat's chin."Aw come on, no need to lie Huskykins. If I know one thing, my birthday suit is your personal favorite~" The Pornstar said with a chuckle, sending a disgusting chill up the feline demon's spine."I swear, if you keep teasin' me like that then you will feel my fucking wrath..." He growled, pointing a claw at the grinning arachnid."Oh, I'm shaking with fear...~" Angel jeered, taking another step closer that invaded the bartender's personal space. Oogar looked on with confusion, the slang that Angel sputtered left him stumped."Birthday Suit? What that?... Can Oogar wear it now?" The caveman quietly said to himself."Excuse me! May I have all of your attention please?" Charlie's voice suddenly called out to the hotel residents, all of whom looked up to see the hotel owner standing before them with her lover standing by her side."Alright everyone, my dad should be here soon. This isn't how I wanted to do things but for the sake of your own safety, I want to make sure nobody ends up getting hurt." Charlie said to the crew, a slight hint of anxiousness was present in her voice."Now Vaggie will be mainly in charge and I want to make sure that all of you are able to get all those errands done by the time you get back. This will be perfect for your team-building skills and hopefully, everything will go according to-"WHAM!The hotel's front door suddenly swung open, prompting a startled yip out of Charlie as she jumped back into Vaggie's arms, making her girlfriend take a few stiff footsteps back. Angel and Husk both collectively hid behind a long pair of drapes that were positioned by a nearby window. Niffty meanwhile disappeared from plain sight by diving the mouth. Oogar darted up the stairs, quickly running into a nearby room, tripping and fumbling all the way. The only person who was unable to hide out of view was Vaggie, as she alongside Charlie found themselves standing before an imposing figure that stood at the door.Standing at the door was an average-sized man who bore a sharp-toothed grin that resembled Alastor's, though his teeth were pearly white compared to his. He was dapper in appearance, a white suit and a matching hat that had a worm-like snake wrapped around his brim along with a red apple, his facial features were also similar to that of Charlie's. Pale skin, blonde hair, and rosy cheeks. A chilling sensation of dread began to creep its way into the hotel, one that nearly petrified both Vaggie and Charlie, the latter of whom gently placed the other back onto the ground.Peering down from the hallway on the double floor, Oogar couldn't help but feel the same level of tension as when he first met Alastor. He may have looked physically weak but there was something about him that provoked a hidden fear dwelling within his psyche."H-Hello... Dad..." Charlie ushered nervously while a low chuckle came out of Lucifer, who approached his daughter without saying a singular word. Normally, Vaggie would have sprung right in front of her and point a weapon at the assailant, but here, she was frozen like a statue."Charlie..." Lucifer said with a hellish smirk before slowly outstretching an arm... Before suddenly giving Charlie a big bear hug, lifting her off the ground despite being a foot taller than him. "My dear! Words are unable to describe how much I've missed you!""Urk!... I missed you too, dad!... Uh... could ya let go of me?..." Charlie wheezed, prompting her father to drop her and break away from the hug."Oh, much apologies there... I'm just so ecstatic to see you again, my dearest!" Lucifer exclaimed."I'm happy to see you as well, it really has been a while since we last talked hasn't it?" Charlie said with a sheepish smile."Indeed it has! Now, why don't we have ourselves a conversation in the teahouse, yes?" Lucifer happily proposed with a grin. However, from the corner of his eye, he took notice of Vaggie, who winced the moment the Fallen Angel laid his eyes on her. Lucifer raised a brow as his smile disappeared as a neutral look manifested on his visage."Oh, dad! This is Vaggie, remember? I told you about her and even showed you some pictures!" Hell's Princess introduced her girlfriend to her father, hoping by some miracle that he wouldn't look down upon her with a scowl."N-Nice to finally meet you in person, King Magne." Vaggie nervously sputtered, extending out a shaky hand. Lucifer gazed at the Hispanic demoness's hand before reaching out and responding with a firm handshake as his lips cracked back into his smile."Ah, so you are my daughter's lover that she had been talking about? A pleasure to meet you, dear Veggie!" Lucifer welcomed, botching the one-eyed demon's name."It's uh... Vaggie." She quietly muttered.As the three demons had their conversation, Husk poked his head from the drapes, seeing that Lucifer had his back turned. Seeing this as a perfect chance to sneak out, he motioned Angel to follow him. Both the feline and spider crept their way past Lucifer, making sure not to make a sound. However, as they moved towards the door, Angel looked over his shoulder and gave Lucifer's backside a quick glance. A sly smirk formed on the spider's features before he let out a wolf whistle out of pure admiration for his assets. However, this catcall garnered the attention of Lucifer, along with Charlie and Vaggie, as he turned around only to see nothing at all."What the heck was that?" Charlie questioned."Hm. Strange, I feel like a sleek, feminine pervert was complimenting my buttocks… Oh well." Lucifer said, shrugging it off. From outside the hotel, Husk clutched Angel by the nape of his neck as the spider demon struggled around to break free of the cat's grip."The fuck were you thinking!?" Husk growled with his teeth clenched shut."He had a nice ass, I had to!" Angel yelped, raising his arms in his descent.Still hiding in the vase, Niffty's singular orange eye poked out from the ceramic pot as she sneakily squeezed her body out from the vase's mouth as she quickly skittered to the door, thanks to her lightweight and lithe physicality, she made but a barley audible pitter-patter. However, as she reached the door, a sudden thought occurred to Niffty, one that stopped her dead in her tracks. The Cyclopean Demon's head spun around almost like an owl hearing the scampering of a careless mouse, her body slowly turning around to match the position of her head.What caught the one-eyed maid's attention was the top hat that was perched atop Lucifer's head. There was just something about it that alluded Niffty, her legs began to quiver and a hypnotic glimmer began to take form on her pupil. Just the thought of cleaning it drove the Cyclopean wild, her precise vision could already make out the dust particles and lint that took refuge on the fallen angel's hat. Enthralled by the hat's appearance, which emitted an imaginary light that compelled the one-eyed cleaning lady to approach Lucifer from behind."Must…clean…" She said in a zombie-like tone, pulling out a feather duster while thin streams of saliva began to dribble down her chin. Niffty's legs tensed up, preparing to leap at the hat before suddenly she felt a hand tug at her dress before being swiftly pulled out of the hotel. Husk held Niffty in a tight embrace with one hand while his other was still clutching onto Angel. Though, Niffty didn't make it easy for the feline demon as she kicked and writhed around in his grasps."LET GO OF MEEEEEE! I WANT TO CLEAN HIS HAAAAAT!" She cried."You know I'm starting to get aroused by this. Mind squeezing a lil' bit harder for me, Huskykins?~" Angel cooed, a blush slightly forming along his cheeks."Do I have to be your damn babysitters!?" Husk growled, still trying to keep Niffty subdued while simultaneously dropping Angel after his comment. On the other side of the spectrum, Oogar was still hiding upstairs as he peered down Lucifer with a look of confusion. The dreadful aura that he once felt and in its place was an odd warmth, one that left Oogar in a state of confusion. How could it be possible that a man like him could go from terrifying to inviting on the flip of a dime?Though, not wanting to dwell on it for too long, Oogar snuck into a nearby room. He knew he couldn't go out of the front door, he'd be spotted almost immediately. Oogar looked over to the window of the room, knowing what his next course of action was."Well, Vaggie would love to stay and chat with us but she has some errands to run." Charlie explained to her father."But it's an honor meeting you, King Magne... Or... uh... Mr. Magne?" Vaggie said, unsure of how to address the fallen angel."Now, now. Let's not get too formal, just call me Lucifer! If I like you enough, you can call me Luci!" Lucifer said with a sparkling grin."Oh... Well, I best be going. Goodbye, Luci..." Vaggie was about to end her sentence on that until she noticed the king's smirk slowly diminishing. "-FER! LUCIFER! I uh... Meant to call you tha-"BANG!Suddenly the hotel shook from a thunderous noise that almost caused the three demons to fall over hadn't they maintained their balance, while a few framed pictures fell from the walls."Oh blimey! What in the seven rings of Hell was that!?" Lucifer exclaimed."Uh... That was uh... Gophers! We uh... have a Gopher problem! Yes?" Vaggie said, clumsily scooting over to the door with her eyes still focused on both Lucifer and Charlie. Unable to see from behind, Vaggie bumped into the door as she reached for the handle."And I'm uh... Just going to get some pesticides! To, y'know... rodenticides. Gonna need a whole lot of 'em!... So uh... Bye!" She said before hastily exiting the hotel, slamming the door behind her."Be careful now! Gophers here can rip a demon's arm off!" Lucifer said before turning to Charlie. "Trust me, I've seen it happen...""Yeah, because you told me it as a bedtime story, dad..." Charlie sighed."Oh yes, I did! Oh, your mother was utterly livid..." Lucifer remarked, reminiscing of the days of scaring her daughter with horrific bedtime stories as Charlie groaned with exasperation. Outside of the hotel, Vaggie ran over to Husk, who was holding onto a now tuckered-out Niffty."Husk, what the hell just happened!?" Vaggie shouted."Don't look at me. Captain Caveman over there thought it was a platinum idea to jump out of the window." Husk said pointing over to where Oogar was, sprawled face-first into the dirt while a large silhouette of himself was indented in the soil."Oogar! Are you okay?" She said, kneeling down the caveman. Picking his head up out of the dirt, Oogar woozily craned his neck up while his head bobbed side to side."Oogar okaaaay..." The caveman murmured as he reached out and grabbed onto Vaggie's shoulder, pulling himself back onto the ground."Look, just be careful and use the side door next time. Alright?" The Hispanic Demoness said, dusting any specks of dirt off of his shaggy fur. Once she was done, she turned to face the hotel residents. "Alright, we've got about two hours' worth of errands to run. Any questions before we begin?""Hey, can we stop at a Hella Burger. I'm hungry." Angel said, raising his hand."No. You just ate." The Hotel Manager gave a frank response."Aw come on, Vaggz. Pleeeeeease?" The slutty spider begged while Oogar raised his hand."Can... Oogar have Hell...a...burger?... Please?" He said, nervously wringing his hands together. Vaggie looked at Oogar with a blank gaze, not saying a word for a minute or two."...Sure." She said before turning her back and walking off, prompting everyone, besides Angel, to walk off. The Pornstar stood in place in disbelief and vexation, as he tried to manage out a sentence to express his frustrations only for each attempt to come out as just a few words."ARE YOU FUCKIN'...I... THAT'S BULLSHIT, I CAN'T BELIEVE... UGH!..." Angel growled, before throwing all four of his hands up in the air. The spider ultimately went along with the group, grumbling to himself the whole way."Fuckin' hell, might as well adopt that damn caveman while you're at it..." He uttered under breath, not caring if Vaggie heard him or not. Though, the only one who seemed to hear was Oogar, as that the thought he remembered back at the hotel had come back.'Oogar is... son?..." The mammoth demon internally pondered to himself.As they made their way to their first destination, high up in on a tree was a raven that peered down at them. Quietly observing the group without their knowledge, curiously tilting its head before the blackbird opened its beak."Brilliant... The moment those barbarians leave that embarrassment of an establishment, the apple-obsessed asshole shows up! Just what I needed..." The raggedy voice buzzed through the raven's speakers as the mechanical bird stood up on both of its legs and took off from the tree branch, flying into Pentagram City."No matter, one day that time will come..." The raven 'spoke', passing through a forest of buildings and street lights before approaching a less crowded area of the city. The raven set its sights on a structure that stuck out amongst the restaurants and dubious markets scattered throughout the area.The structure in question was a castle-like fortress that was protected by an expansive gate comprised of brick and metal along with guards surrounding the perimeter cladded in armor that was unlike that of The Knight's Templar while a pattern resembling a screaming crow embedded on their chest plates."And when it does, I'll truly be on top!" The raven's speakers droned out before flying over the gate and disappearing into the castle's tallest tower where some swore they heard maniacal laughter echoing from the tower's aperture.
