Stefan felt the squeeze and chuckle when she mentioned she had forgotten about Kara being a valkyrie. He couldn't help but smile as Zora reacted almost identically to the other Valkyries as Freyja spoke. The goddess laid a gentle hand upon Zora's knee before bringing it back to her drink.

"The pleasure is mine. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to meet you after how wonderfully Stefan talked about you. Though to be fair, I don't think he did you justice."

Stefan rolled his eyes as he listened to the exchange, glad things were going well. Occasionally eyes looked over to Kara to see her response. Nothing but sheer confidence emanated from her. Same as ever. Everytime she spoke, it commanded attention, contrasting to Freyja's which called for attention because of its beauty.

"Personally I couldn't believe someone would put up with him. But here you are."

Zora flushed in pleasure when Freiya complimented her. She honestly couldn't see herself competing with women as stunning as Stefan's mother and her personal warriors, but the compliment was nice nonetheless.

"Do you mean, Stefan? I think he's an amazing person. I can't see why anyone would think he would be hard to put up with," Zora remarked. In her opinion, Stefan was one of the most easy-going and accepting people she had ever met.

The Valkyrie's stoic face finally broke as a smile came over her face and a laugh came from within her throat. She looked to Stefan and then back to Zora not letting the smile drop.​
"You didn't have the 4 year old version of him chasing you around everywhere trying to play 'gotcha Kara' while you were training."
Freyja merely chuckled at the memory, her eyes sparkling with the scenario they had all found themselves in. "Yes, he was the little precocious scamp with you when he was but a wee one. Couldn't ever keep up, but he never gave up."
Stefan shook his head and looked over to his girlfriend with grin. "Don't believe anything they say. She may be the goddess of love and beauty, but that doesn't mean she has to tell the truth."

Chuckling at Kara's and Freiya's depiction of younger and more rambunctious Stefan, Zora smiled widely.

"It's fine...Parents are like that. I am pretty sure there are some embarrassing pictures and stories of me when I younger too, "Zora reassured him as she placed a hand lightly on her boyfriend's thigh.

"Heaven knows, I am still sort of dreading that Celeste or my grandfather may bring out the family picture album one day when we visit to show you my rebellious goth phase," she told him jokingly.

"Oh and I am so looking forward to seeing those pictures." Stefan's hand came to rest gently on top of hers after she placed it on his thigh. He had zero concern with showing any type of affection in front of what was essentially his family, and even less so in front of his mom. Her being the Goddess of love, she almost expected it.​
"Oh speaking of embarrassing stories. My favorite would have to be right after a bath, his little slippery behind would get away from me and run find Kara's helmet. He'd then run all around the hall bare butt cheeks hanging out as he stumbled into table and chair alike while trying to wear the too big helmet." A hearty laugh came from the goddess while all Kara could do was shake her head at the memory, the beginnings of a smile peaking at the corners of her mouth.​
"I'm so glad he grew out of that. So Zorida, for our feast tonight, I have to insist that you wear something more..." Sharp eyes gave her a quick look over, "...appropriate." Kara was quickly interrupted by Freyja with a smile as she sat forward in her chair.​
"Yes, we are a little more traditional around here with these things. If you don't mind, I think I might have something that fits you perfectly." There was a hint of a twinkle in the goddess eyes.​

"Of course," Zora replied with a smile as she gave Stefan's hand one last squeeze before she stood up, ready to follow the goddess, Freiya. She was fairly used to her clients or business associates asking her to follow different forms of etiquette or traditions.

"We will be back soon," Zora said as she turned to glance warmly at Stefan before she followed his mother to try on the outfit she had in mind.

Freyja stood quickly keeping the smile on her face and extended a hand for the young witch to take as she lead her back to her own chambers. It was, of course, just as grand and elegant as the rest of the great hall, but still had a personal charm to it that made it feel cozy.​
"You know dear, my son is completely smitten by you. Whatever you did to get his attention, bravo."
The goddess of love teased her a little bit. Before shutting the door behind them and moving over to a large closet of outfits. It was clear she had a specific one in mind.
"I know just the dress. Your green eyes will come to life with it. Ah yes! Here it is."
She pulled out a long purple dress that appeared more fitted at the top and then opened up to free flow below the waist. It had gold thread inlaid in pattern down each arm. A matching gold belt hung with it. While the pair was away, the hall was already getting prepared and both Kara and Stefan had retreated accordingly to prepare as well.

"Please take your time trying it on. I have one more touch I must find for it."

Letting Freiya pull her along, Zora followed the goddess with childlike wonder and curiosity. Stefan's mother was nothing like what she envisioned. Freiya was somehow better, more glorious in a way - she was both regal and imposing, but not.

"I honestly don't know," Zora confessed with a smile. "It honestly feels like it was meant to be somehow. Like he was supposed to have been there at that exact time so I could run headlong into him," she admitted laughingly. remembering how they met. It had been a fortuitous encounter.

When Freiya pulled out a dress, Zora's eyes lighted up. "Oh, my... it's exquisite," she remarked as she took the garment from the goddess, and went to try it on.

Minutes later, Zora came out from behind a screen dressed in the dress Freiya had chosen for her. It fit perfectly like it was made for her.

"Freiya?" she stated as emerge. "It's beautiful, and fits like a glove," she added as she did a slow twirl for the goddess.

For all the stories told about her, Freyja enjoyed being more lighthearted. Yes, she was also the Goddess of war, battle, death, and whatever word historians decided to place there, but she wanted to be known as the Goddess of Love and Beauty, and acted accordingly. Although, her temper and wrath were never far behind should she need to call on them.​
"I wish I could take credit for that one, but Stefan is notorious for going against anything I try to help him with."
While Zoraida was changing, Freyja was digging through drawers and small ornate containers. She had tucked the item she was looking for away for just such an occasion. When she found the jewelry box her eyes shined bright as she turned back just in time to see Zora emerge.​
"Oh darling. You are what's beautiful. The dress is merely material. Here. A small personal gift from me to you."
Cracking open the box revealed a necklace made of gold and amber. The stones hung in pattern around the necklace that allowed it to flare out when worn. Taking it in her hands, she moved behind Zora and began placing it around her neck and securing the clasp.
"The dwarves made this to commemorate when I taught witchcraft to the Aesir. I have a feeling our meeting might be a ripple of the pebble tossed into that pond."
When she was done, hands rested upon the witches shoulders and she lightly turned her to a mirror for her to inspect it.

When Freiya opened the box, Zora gasped in surprise. The necklace was exquisite, the amber flawless. The necklace was anything but "a small" personal gift.

Looking at Freiya in shock when she mentioned who and why it was made, Zora was tempted to refuse such a priceless piece as a gift. However, before she could say anything, declare that it was too much, Freiya had already placed the piece on her.

When it was on her, Zora looked at herself in the mirror and shook her head.

"It's beautiful," she whispered, touched by the gesture as her one hand came up to touch the necklace.

"Thank you, Freiya," Zora said as she looked at the goddess, overwhelmed by such generosity. "I feel it's too much though. You barely know me," she explained as she looked at herself once again in the mirror.
