Since I know what you’ll ask. But do not let me stop you from asking either way.
If you knwo what it is I shall ask, what is your answer? I do hope it is better than last time.
Sooner or later, yes.. I had just been hoping it’d be later.
You had hoped it would be later? Now, why is that?
Aset.. I should have known.
So you were expecting me?
Don’t shout, I am right here.
gives Cael an exhausted look Maybe I was mistaken then, but that’s my sister, not me. You and I have common interests, Aset, and I seek no alternative motives. Dislike me all you want, but as Cael said you need me just as I need you.
gives a short smirk Well I’m more than just some messenger, I think I could be a rather versatile ally. Speed, strength and durability are, but a few abilities I have. Give me enough time I can steal a car and sell it back to the owner. Should I continue?
He scoffs at Danielle’s words. I better be excluded.
I’ll take full responsibility, but I trust that he won’t do what you worry about. Like Sean says, he is not his sister. If he was I wouldn’t have brought him here he turned to look at Sean.… No offense
Think about it Dani. He’s a healer of some sorts and he can get to Erebus and with that us as well. A ticket to Hades and those that are trapped within. He can steal from the others, Thor, Loki, Rhea and he shares Loki’s love of tricking others. It would work to an advantage.
Laughs, shaking her head, almost disgusted. You think I need you? Need you? I need you like I need a pet.
What Greeks need I take from Erebus that are not already here? I am married to Asar, or have you forgotten? All the dead I desire are at my disposal should I want them.
What do I need from Thor or Loki? What could you possibly steal from Rhea that I have not taken myself?
You will have to do better than that before I allow you near our blood.
I believe we met briefly. looks at Cael then back to Danielle Well I’m guessing we want the same thing. Besides what ill will could you possibly hold against me?
He’s got the attitude, the right state of mind and we can need whomever we can get. I trust him enough to know he won’t go against you or misuse your magic.
He looked sideways at Sean, smirking at what he said, covering his mouth up with his hand, looking back at Danielle. See?
Your sister killed him, so you’ll have to forgive me if I am wary of you being anywhere near my magic. And your cousin hates Egyptians… not that I particularly like you Greeks anyway. Ares excluded.
Looks over at Cael with a grimace. I hope you are right, darling. I will kill him if you aren’t. Looks back a Sean. I’m sure you understand.
What powers do you have anyway? You are a messenger. Sell yourself to me before I even think about giving you my magic.
Hmm hmm. He smiled, watching her curiously from above, his fingertips adrift on her flesh, tracing her ribs. What? Too soon or too inconvenient? Cael breathed in, placing his hand flat on her stomach into a rest, resting his chin atop his folded hands, a curious smile lingering on his lips.
Danielle’s face remained devoid of emotion for a moment as she searched his face. No, not at all. She said finally, a smile creeping over her lips as his hands folded atop her stomach. A soft wind brushed over her chest as she spoke, her speckled eyes gazing down at him. I love you too.
Danielle. I got you a new face. Meet Sean, aka Hermes.
Oh goodness. Recruiting rather furiously, aren’t you?
Hermes: the messenger. Brother of Athena. What do you think makes him worthy of my magic?
Now that’s just heel licking, darling.
The Greek. He was dead when I last looked, and after I took over of my human, he was alive.. Asar would never do this, neither would Hades. So it must have been you. Why? How?
I thought that’s what you wanted.
He was dead, yes, and now he is alive. I need him and he was taken because of a family grudge. The how is simple. I have much more magic now than ever before. I can raise the dead by myself - a grueling process, yes, but one that is not impossible for me any longer. It is interesting, these blood bonds with Greeks. Why? Has my husband complained to you?
Look who’s talking, dearest. Admit that without me you’d have no son, brush my ego. Oh hush. I just came to visit an old friend. And I came to ask you a question. One that can clear up some confusion.
Of course, darling love sweetie dear. You are the light of my life. Etc, etc.
You always have questions. What now?
