The Water-Palace (Preparations)
Emperor Saarang hopped out of his cruiser. He had decided to head to the Water Palace early, check on how the preparations were going. And to get out of the hair of the woman, who were running around the house like headless Granboks.
The front door swung open and the emperor stepped through the threshold. He heard more than saw the first sight – a massive cascading waterfall on either side that descended three stories in to the hallway he stood in now.
Hmm… Alfran must be busy, guess I could go inspect the rooms for the party, he thought to himself. He stepped in to four different rooms and was blown away by the setup, He’s really outdone himself this time.
Alfran Goffil was swimming in one of the roof-top pools. His preparations for the evening done, he was taking some well earned relaxation time before the chaos began.
“6 years, 10 months, 13 days, 7 hours, 28 minutes and…. 2 seconds.”
Saarang’s jaw just dropped. “H- How do you do that?”
Alfran pointed to his cybernetic eye “XIN app”
“Yes your Imperial Majesty. We only await the caterers, the entertainment, and the guests.” replied Alfran as he continued to swim laps.
