What Goes Around || Hermes & Persephone

therovingkind:

Hermes chuckled and put his hand over hers, tapping the tops of her knuckles with the pad of his thumb, a touch he knew always comforted her. He knew what she meant, of course, but it was nice to hear her say that he meant so much to her. “Then maybe… You should write out a speech to give to him. And ask him to listen patiently while you read out the whole thing. If you can read it neutrally without getting too emotional… Maybe you can work something out with him? I’m still in favor of leaving him high and dry if he continues to be an arse, but if you’re trying to work to something better, then that might be good, I think.”

"I’ll figure something out…. in the morning," she said," I just need to find a way to get this off my mind for now.  I can’t be looking over my shoulder at shadows….."

She sighed, closing her eyes a moment, the face of her husband still lingering there.  She mustered up a small and rather dismal smile before shaking her head once and looking back to her friend,” I just needed to clear my head, get it out.   I just needed….. this.”  She gave him a small shrug.

“You think you’re the first person to try to subtly get me to work through my feelings? You aren’t.” He swallowed hard at the burning in his throat. “It doesn’t work, anyway. It only makes my heart hurt.” Apollo stared down at the ground, not wanting to deal with Persephone’s cruelly compassionate nature.

"I never said I was going to help you work through your feelings.  I’m genuinely curious why you would do it.  How you did it.  All of that.:

apolloswreckage:

“You think it has to do with-” Apollo shook his head, getting visibly more agitated with Persephone, of whom he never wanted to shout at. “No. It has nothing to do with being mortal. I broke the divine bond I’ve had with my sister since birth, and it’s making me ill… making us both ill, I think.”

Why would you do something like that?

apolloswreckage:

He sighed, exasperated that she refused to let the topic go. “Very dizzy. I’ve been gravely ill for a few days now, alright? It isn’t anything I can’t handle. Can we move on now?”

image

What’s causing it?  Do you know?   I have no doubt you can handle it… but I’d like to know in case something happens to me that’s similar.  Perhaps something that will happen to us all eventually now that we’re mortal?

apolloswreckage:

I’m fine, Persephone. Dizzy, at worst. What about you? Tell me about you.

We can talk about me later.  Dizzy?  How dizzy?

potnathea:

It’s called Mean Girls. It’s insane. I love it so much.

I’ve never heard of it.   I don’t spend too much time indoors if I can help it.

"I’m glad you know." He murmured in reply. "You’re not just going to hope, are you? Please tell me you’re going to do something. Even if it’s just talking to him frankly." He sighed a little when she squeezed his arm, smiling tiredly at her. "You’d still have Athena and Artemis, I’m certain, but I’m glad I’m here to help."

Persephone scrunched her face at him playfully,” You know what I mean.”   It went unsaid that the two had a connection.  They had been through a lot together… and she really couldn’t picture her life without her friend.  Turning a bit somber once more she looked to the table once more,” I know I have to talk to him eventually….  I just don’t know how to without getting emotional.  It’s like my filter disappears when I’m with him, and everything just pours out.”

potnathea:

But it’s a better mantra if you get it with the movie reference. You need to watch that with me one time. You and Athena, it’d be great.

What movie is that?

apolloswreckage:

He nods apprehensively. “Oh, I’ve been doing great. A few spur of the moment illnesses have been a bit of a downer, but I’d say overall I’m swell.”

Illnesses?  Are you okay?
