Riches and Spoils that decay with Time. Chapter 5


After an awkwardly timed confession, Cassy was at a loss for words on how to respond to Valery’s feelings. This left Valery in a state of worry until Cassy eventually sits down with Valery to clear the air.

With the reunion that was long anticipated by Valery and her friends, a tearful hug from her son Fabio finally comes as Valery’s efforts have finally been rewarded. Though there was more to her day than just her reunion with her son that day.

Motivated more than ever after being given a chance to reclaim custody of her beloved son Fabio, Valery works towards her intended goal with the help of Cassy and the others.

Seeing her chance to open up to the one person she should have from the start, Valery shares her traumatic past with Cassy. Though her visit was only meant to share her own past with Cassy, Cassy in turn returned the favor by doing the same.

After a restful sleep, Valery found herself recalling the unusual situation she found herself in. Grateful beyond measure for everything that’s been given to her so far, Valery’s inhibitions slowly fade as she even grows comfortable enough to help out.

She learns more of how the other residents came to be in Welhemia’s mansion, further showing Valery just how trusted Welhemia really is.

As the day goes on, Valery comes to a conclusion that leaves her perplexed as she’s left with feelings of gratitude…or was it something else entirely?

Given kindness that had since felt foreign to her, Valery accepted Welhemia’s help. Cautious of everyone around her, Valery meets more people who share their stories of the kindness that Welhemia had given them, causing Valery to trust her more.

Still, Valery wanted to know how someone could be so kind and why she chooses to help those around her. Was it to earn their favor, to make them feel a sense of debt that has to be repaid? These questions will be answered as she spends more time with Welhemia.

There’s a saying that only those who have lived a long and venerable life often say.

“At the end of the day, all the money and power you have in the world is meaningless when you’re dead.”

A saying that couldn’t be any farther from the truth for those who have aged like fine wine, the younger adults of the modern world live and enjoy their decadence, ignorant of the futility of it all in the face of those who lived their lives honestly.

This is a story of a woman who lived her life with everything she could possibly want, faced with the harsh reality that everything you get in life must be earned. A harsh reality that crashes down on her without warning.

“How are those little ones getting past security? Why do they keep sneaking out of the building where we can’t catch them?” Katy asked frustrated by the lack of control.

“They are clearly emboldened, and more tenacious than we gave them credit for. Everyone knows it’s practically a secret right down to the genetic code of a Kikimora” Fubuki shrugged.

“Regardless they have to stop, the trek is only so safe…I’m just thankful the worse they have to deal with is traffic” Katy sighed.

“Which luckily they were thoroughly taught to look both ways. Come on~ cheer up, we got you that fountain, just leave everything to me, I’ll keep this place afloat, you just get some good hibernation going before the cold catches up to you” Fubuki said.

‘I got a good feeling about this year’s celebrations!” Katy said.

“I’m not…every time I get ask the same question…’are you going to dress up as Spider Gwen, and every time I remind them that her backside can’t hold a candle to mine…not to mention my bountiful bosom” Nirvana scoffed.

“Speaking of…who do you think will win in a fight!? I have high hopes for my Solid Snake!” Katy said.

“For the last time Katy, just because his name has the word ‘snake’ in it, doesn’t mean he is directly linked to them” Nirvana said.

“Well that’s easy, obviously Mr. Freeze is top dog! I mean, I don’t mean to brag, but me, and him are kind of complex characters so we can relate on that” Fubuki said.

“You are delusional Fubuki…given my time in the…*ahem*…craft I have deduced that Doctor Doom’s supperior intellect will trump any foe” Rin said.

“Same goes for you too Rin, just because his name has the word ‘doctor’ in it doesn’t mean-” Nirvana said.

“He has a PHD” Rin added.

“How about we have a little more fun with this…what do you say Rin?” Fubuki challenged.

“Very well…let us set the stage first though…no need for collateral damage” Rin said.

“Well at least you’re being civil about it.” Katy said.

“Lady Ryu…we’ve noticed that there has been a spring in your step lately…but you suddenly ceased…is there anything concerning you?” A passing Inari shrine maiden asked her Lady Ryu Kosame.

“Well…I was just thinking about things…lately…” Kosame said.

“We also noticed a certain someone hasn’t visited your shrine in quite a while…” the Inari added.

“I suppose that is the case…I-I barely…noticed…” her tone felt fleeting, from casual to sad in only a few words.

“Cheer up my Lady Ryu! Surely it means your blessings are helping him substantially…no doubt he will return to you to tell you all this himself” the Inari read her like a book.

“Y-you think so-well I mean…so long as he is happy that is my happiness, I…I should get to work myself, in case anyone wishes to visit me” Kosame said.
