Valhalla Saga - SS #3 Nidhogg’s Diary
SS #3 Nidhogg’s Diary
Writing is difficult.
But it’s still fine. I feel like i’m drawing a story book.
The diary Tae Ho master got for me is different form Adenmaha’s diary. It has a place I can draw on every page.
Heda got me a lot of color pencils. There are one… two…ten and six so sixteen of them.
Hehehe.I will draw prettily.
“I’m glad she likes it.”“Her writing is quite good.”“Because my own model writing is pretty. Hmph.”“Um, but what did she draw there?”“Uh… I wonder?”#2
I was drawing something when Hydra entered.
That’s why I boasted to Hydra.
Hydra noticed who it was immediately. Hehehe. I think I drew it nicely.
“Unnie. What are you doing?”“Drawing. This is Adenmaha. I also drew grandpa Hraesvelgr and Hydra. There’s Heda end Nidhogg is here.”“Oh…right. But everyone is laughing?”“Yes, Adenmaha’s smiling face is the prettiest.”#3
Today I learned the frontal roll from master Scathach.
I performed it once in front of Hydra because she said she wanted to see it. I made a cool roll and Hydra clapped for me.
“I learned a back roll from master Scathach today.”“A back roll? You roll backwards?”“Yes! Should I show you? Tell me you want to. I want to show it to you.”“Ye, yes. But are you really able to do it?”“I can! Okay- here I go!”“Kyak! Unnie!”“Uagh! It hurts!”“It’s fine, it doesn’t hurt at all. Pain fly away, fly away. My unnie isn’t in pain.”“Sob. Thanks. I will try once again then.”“A, again?”“I will do it again. Watch closely.”“Oh! Unnie! You did it properly this time! You are cool!”“Hehehe. Thank you. Thank you Hydra.”#4
I got scolded by Adenmaha because I ate too many sweets.
Grandpa Hraesvelgr also got scolded for giving me sweets.
Adenmaha is a…not a fool. And I ha…te her not.
Hiing. I don’t know.
“Hey, even if she’s cute how can you give her those many sweets so ignorantly?”“That’s because Nidhogg likes…”“So you will be able to give her poison if she likes it right?”“Why are you speaking like-”“Anyways, did you do a good thing or a bad thing? Huh?”“Hm hm, my body-.”“I asked you if you did a good thing or a bad thing.”“I’m sorry.”“What about you Nidhogg?”“Huh? Uh… sweets are tasty.”“Nidhogg?”“I’m sorry.”“As for the sweets?”“Only three in a day.”“And after you eat them?”“I brush my teeth.”#5
Hello my diary.
I cooked with Heda today.
Heda cooks really well. Everything is delicious.
I wanted to help her using the knife but Heda didn’t let me so I wasn’t able to do it.
That’s why I helped with another thing from a side.
Heda praised me saying that I tested food really well.
“Is it delicious Nidhogg?”“Yes it is.”“What about this?”“This is also delicious.”“You try food really well. Thank you for helping.”“Yes, but I can’t use the knife?”“Let’s go step by step. You can’t use a knife that big because it’s dangerous. I will get a small knife that you will be able to use. You can wait until then, right?”“Yes, I will. I can wait. Waiting is my specialty. Ratatoskr told me that he would come if I waited for a hundred days. That’s why… (omitted) huh? Where are you going Heda?”“Wait for a moment. I’m going to beat the s… no, to hit Ratatoskr.”“Heda?”#6
Hey diary, yesterday Adenmaha sang a lullaby for me.
Adenmaha has a really fine voice. She also sings well. Nidhogg also wants to sing well.
I start to feel drowsy listening to Adenmaha singing. I feel really good but it’s a bit scary if I fall asleep like that.
Because no one may be by my side when I wake up.
I told this to Adenmaha but she put on a teary face so I don’t do it anymore.
But i’m still scared of it to say the truth.
I will sleep while embracing Adenmaha today. I get relieved when I see Adenmaha’s face when I wake up.
I’m not alone. She’s with me.
“Adenmaha, Adenmaha. Sing me a lullaby.”“Yes, sure. But Nidhogg. Did you brush your teeth? And washed your face?”“Uh…um…”“Before sleeping?”“I have to wash myself.”“You know it well. Go quickly.”“Yees…”#7
I practiced giving my magic power some shape today.
I’m learning that from master Scathach and it’s really fun.
The really big Nidhogg became a World Tree so we have to make a new one.
Adenmaha saw what Nidhogg made and praised me.
It still has the size of a palm but I will make it bigger in no time. After that I will bring Tae Ho master, Adenmaha, Heda and Hydra and take them to a flight.
I’m hoping for that day to come quickly. I will practice earnestly.
“What are you doing Nidhogg?”“I was practicing giving shape to my magic power. Look at this.”“Wow. It looks like a real drag…huh? This looks like your original body.”“Yes yes. My previous body became the World Tree. That’s why I have to make it a new. I’m learning this from Scathach master. Did I make it well?”“You did. Impressive.”“Hehehe.”“Um…but it will surely take a lot of time, right?”“Huh?”“No, it’s nothing.”#8
Yesterday Adenmaha read a storybook for me. When Nidhogg closed her eyes because she started to feel sleepy, Adenmaha read for a little bit more and stood up.
I held Adenmaha’s hand because I haven’t fallen asleep yet and suddenly thought of something scary.
Adenmaha got perplexed so I wondered for a bit. That’s why I talked of something different but I wanted to do it for real as I spoke about it.
That’s why I slept holding Adenmaha’s and master’s hands.
It wasn’t scary at all as I slept holding the hands of the two of them. Hehehe.
Ah, but won’t I get a child like this?“Uh… Nidhogg?”“You are going to sleep with Tae Ho master. Nidhogg wants to go too. Nidhogg wants to go too. I want to sleep holding your hands.”“Uh…Um…Shall we then?”“Yes yes. I want to. What’s wrong Adenmaha?”“Well, I thought that my waist was going to be fine today.”#9
Hey diary. Today I got a bit angry with Adenmaha.
Adenmaha is unreasonable. She’s not bad… but she’s unreasonable.
But Adenmaha still apologized to Nidhogg saying that she was wrong.
That’s why I should forgive her. But I will get angry if she does that next time too. How can I pick? I can’t.
What? What did Adenmaha tell me to pick?Um…It’s a secret.
“Nidhogg, do you like me or Tae Ho master?”“Tae Ho mas…no, Aden..wuu. Wuaaaa!”“Sorry, sorry. Don’t cry okay? I’m sorry. I’m sorry.”#10
I met Ratatoskr today.
Heda told me that Ratatoskr was working under Odin-nim.
Ratatoskr is the same as before. That’s why I got relieved.
Adenmaha, Tae Ho master, Heda, Hydra and Hraesvelgr all hate Ratatoskr.
It would be good if everyone could get along.
Because Ratatoskr is my friend.
Yes, a friend.
He’s the only one that talked to me when I didn’t have anyone.
That’s why he’s a friend.
Nidhogg likes Ratatoskr. I like him.
It would be good if Ratatoskr liked Nidhogg too.
Ah, and also.
Diary is also my friend.
“Get away! Why in the world did you come here! Is there something to see?! Because of you-”
“You should stop there.”“Come here Nidhogg. It’s fine. Ratatoskr is the bad one. Nidhogg isn’t bad.”“Ratatoskr…”#11
Today we all bathed together.
Adenmaha, Heda, Scathach master, Hydra and Nidhogg.
It was a newly built onsen in the residence and it was warm and cozy.
I washed myself cleanly with Hydra. Hydra giggled when I washed her and Adenmaha also did the same.
Bathing is fun.
“But…”“But?”“It’s certainly big.”“Uh…right?”“It is big.”“Big.”“Adenmaha, Heda, Scathach master. What’s wrong? Is there something in Nidhogg’s body?”“No, nothing. Nidhogg’s heart is really broad and good.”“Huh? My heart?”“Yes, your heart. The heart of our Nidhogg is really broad and good.”“Adenmaha’s heart is also broad and good.”“Well, that’s true.”#12
Hey diary, you know what happened today. I learned how to handle divine power from Idun-nim.
She told me that I had to know how to do it because Nidhogg is also a God, a dragon God.
And you know what, I heard something really impressive today.
The humans in Midgard serve me as a God. They say people also pray.It’s amazing, right?They say it’s because Tae Ho master spread Nidhogg’s name far away.
What could the people be praying to Nidhogg?Idun-nim said that I should know how to handle divine power to hear the prayers of the people. That’s why I practiced hard today.
I’m looking forward to going to Midgard.
Yep, looking forward to it.
“Nidhogu-rolling!”“NeedHogu!”“How have you been publicizing that everyone calls Nidhogu…no, Nidhogg that way?”“I thought that I did a good job.”“Izimaha-nim! DislocateMyWaist-nim! Goddess of the bedtime!”“Izimaha? DislocateMyWaist? Goddess of the bedtime?”“Dislocate my waist!”“What is this! Fool of a master!”“Wait, why!”“You are a fool anyways!”#13
Today I learned several things from master Scathach.
She told me that I shouldn’t use the words I learned from Adenmaha’s diary.
That those were bad words.
So when I told her that Adenmaha wasn’t bad she told me that people had good and bad sides in them. That there are times Adenmaha also makes mistakes.
“You understand? You should use those words when you grow and become an adult. No, it also becomes a problem after you become an adult.”“Nidhogg will get bigger? As big as Bracky?”“Huh?”“Master, won’t it be too much if she gets bigger on top of that? She is already that plent-Kuk!”“Cuchulainn oppa!”“It’s fine as he’s a pervert. Cuchulainn is a pervert that likes to get hit. Get away from him.”“Hik. Getting hit is scary. It’s weird that someone likes getting hit.”“Ni, Nidhogg! It’s not like t…kuk!”“Anyways, Nidhogg. Take this into account. This isn’t the time yet. You should use those kinds of words later and if possible don’t say it later either. Understand?”“Ye, yes. I will do that.”#14
Hey diary. You know what happened today. Hehehe.
We decided to go on an excursion tomorrow. An excursion. We will ride on grandpa Hraesvelgr’s back and go far away.
Tae Ho master, Adenmaha, Hydra, Heda, Scathach master and Cuchulainn oppa will be coming too.
I’m really looking forward to it.
Heda told me not to look when she was preparing lunch boxes as she was going to show her skills. So it will be more fun later.
Ugh, what would she make? Nidhogg likes fried chicken. There will also be fried chicken in the lunch box, right?I don’t think I will be able to sleep because of how excited I am.
I like excursions.
When Nidhogg opened her eyes the sun was already at its peak. It was due to having slept too late for having her eyes open all night.
“Nidhogg, you woke up?”“Adenmaha?”
Nidhogg, that woke up rubbing her eyes and yawning, blinked and spread her arms and then looked at Adenmaha. She then yelled in surprise and stood up.
“The excursion! Are we late for the excursion? Did Nidhogg wake up too late?”“No, it’s fine. We aren’t late. Although the others have already gathered and are waiting.”“Hueee.”“Now, let’s hurry. Let’s go wash quickly.”
Nidhogg got urged by Adenmaha and headed to the washroom. She was in a hurry but she couldn’t wash herself half heartedly because of that. After she washed her face, brushed her teeth, and washed her hair, Adenmaha dried her hair with mystical magic.
“You should also wear properly.”“Yes yes.”What Adenmaha took out were clothes that Tae Ho had acquired previously. These clothes were made in Terra so they were more resistant and comfortable than the ones you could get in Midgard or Asgard.
When Adenmaha finished brushing Nidhogg’s hair and helping her wear some clothes, she stood up from her place and said.
“Good, let’s start with the preparations to depart so you should also bring your things Nidhogg.”“Yes yes, I will.”Actually, there was nothing much to take. All she had to take were some toys she liked, emergency snacks, and a handkerchief. In addition, Nidhogg had already checked the contents of her bag several times last night.
But the moment she left her house with her bag and saw the faces of everyone waiting for her Nidhogg realized something. That she had left the most important thing.
“Wait, wait! I will go and take it immediately!”Nidhogg yelled hurriedly and returned to her room. There was a picture diary placed on top of her desk.
“I was about to forget this.”I’m going far away today and it will be late after I return so I am going to draw pictures on my diary in the excursion. So I don’t forget about it.
Nidhogg smiled brightly and placed the diary in her bag. And it was when she was about to leave the room.
Nidhogg stopped walking and looked up at the ceiling. The ceiling was a familiar one but it looked kind of special today.
No, the ceiling wasn’t the special thing. Nidhogg felt a gaze looking at her from far away. That’s why she formed a bright smile.
The World God Asgard.
She was looking at Nidhogg. She was smiling brightly and asking Nidhogg.
If she was doing well, if she was happy with her current life.
Nidhogg nodded several times and hit her chest two times with a fist just like Tae Ho did.
“For Asgard and the nine realms.”Her feelings that appeared when she turned into the Black Holy Dragon hadn’t changed a slightest bit.
Nidhogg loved the world. She loved it just like how Audhumla did.
She would keep protecting the world from now on and love everyone in it.
The World God Asgard looked at Nidhogg. She opened her mouth and spoke in a low voice. Nidhogg giggled and nodded several times.
“Nidhogg! You aren’t ready yet?”Adenmaha’s voice was heard outside the window. Nidhogg flinched and looked at the window and then back at the ceiling and then nodded towards Asgard that was telling her to go with a smile.
“Yes yes. I will go.”Nidhogg left the house in a hurry. Everyone was gathered just like Adenmaha had said.
Tae Ho master, Adenmaha, Heda, Scathach, Cuchulainn, Hraesvelgr.
“It’s big!”The lunch box placed behind Heda was really big. It was a big that could easily hold two Adenmaha’s in it if you exaggerated it a bit.
Heda smiled brightly and waved with her hand and Nidhogg hurried her steps. She then ran towards Adenmaha and Tae Ho that were worried that she may fall.
The sky was blue and the sun was bright.
Nidhogg ran forward with strength. She inhaled the clear and fresh air and spread her arms. The nice breeze passed through her forehead.
The World Asgard.
Everyone in Asgard.
Nidhogg smiled in a good mood.
She put a happy smile.
