As expected, it didn’t take long for him to receive the warning that the judge wanted to meet him. It never happened that it would take much more than a few days until they finally ripped the business card apart, wanting to speak with him about what he asked them to, and normally those who took a bit more time were also the most interesting, as they normally were the more wise, too.
He didn’t teleport right away, though. No, doing so would make him look like he either expected such reaction, and thus look arrogant, or had nothing to do, which would make him look lazy. Instead, he prepared his briefcase, possible contracts and statistics stuffed in there along with pens and every utility he might need, and then straightened his smoking, just to look acceptable enough for a meeting of that importance.
Just then, he finally snapped his fingers, finally appearing in front of the desk of the Yama, quickly bowing in front of her to show respect and greet her properly.
"Greetings, Oh Judge. My apologies for making you wait for a while, I had to make sure to be prepared with everything I needed before entering this realm." As he was now far from his own hell, that statement was a little more important that one might think : now that he was there, moving in and out of that world for just getting a few things would quickly tire him out, and he needed to be in top shape if he wanted to make it work.
"My name is Satan, know also as the lord of hell, though I do suppose you’ve made your researches before calling me. And my reason of booking an appointment was related to your own "hell" ‘s economical status. Am I allow to explain further, or is there something you might want to talk about, first?
Eiki, as was her nature, listened carefully to every word. He’d certainly dressed for the occasion. And from his words, it was clear he’d done his research on just how the Hells of Eiki’s realm worked. Still, he wouldn’t be here if he didn’t have a good reason to benefit himself. Whether the Adversary or the Tempter, that would be the same. And so she had to be careful.
"I have indeed done my research, Satan," she affirmed, not moving from where she rested in her throne, doing her best to seem as regal as possible. Eiki aimed to remind Satan of the power and majesty of his own God. "Know this, the deceptions you undertake, whether they be sanctioned by your God or not, they will not work here. My mirror can stare into the souls of those who catch sight of it, reveal all their sins and thoughts. Do not attempt to deceive me." In truth, it was a subtle bluff on her part - the mirror wouldn’t work on Satan, but he didn’t know that.
"Now that we have made that clear, I think there will be no problems with you explaining further. Know, however, that if you run my Hells like you run your own, you will not be forgiven. Those under the sway of the Yamas can nearly always be redeemed, and the Hells are for punishment, not imprisonment for life eternal. Still… go on."
