When they were in the line (By the way, they got there first!!!), his friend was drooling at the window looking at the food displayed. His eyes were bright and sparkling. He was giggling at the sight of them as a cute, sweet (but weird…) child.
People looking at him from afar, wouldn’t help but feel like seeing an adult child, filled with glee looking at the cakes displayed.
But to Hades and humans near them, they could feel this crazy, evil aura, emitting from him.
It was more like a hungry drooling Hyena, giggling at the sight of the prey. Yeah… his friend was very scary…
When the door to the bakery opened, his friend rushed in… LITERALLY!!! He used his power of teleportation by mistake. His mind was probably muddled by the smell of Ice Cream from inside the store, while standing outside (Don’t even forget drooling!!!).
The staff was too shocked (AND Scared!!!) by the sight of a healthy male vanishing from the door and appearing right in front of them. So much that they couldn’t help but hand over the whole carton on the newly launched Ice Cream.
It was as if looking at geeky, lanky children bullied, to hand over their Lunch money to a big, angry delinquent.
…That was the image, which came to his mind.
Hades had to stop time for a while to wipe out the memories of anyone who might have seen the teleportation trick. From the staff inside, to the customers standing on the line outside.
To be on the safe side, Hades wiped down everyone’s memory in 2 km radius. Memory of just 2-3 Minutes.
Imagine you are working for about 3 hrs. But, do you remember what you were doing exactly at the 136th minute of starting the work?
Hades used just this logic!!! People won’t even noticed the lack of couple of minutes in their daily monotonous life.
But was that Glutton even have a shred of gratitude for all the hard work that Hades did for him?!!???
The Glutton was so dazzled, that the moment he laid his hands on the ice cream, he forgot the whole world around him.
It was just him and his (damn) limited time Ice Cream!!!
Hades shook his head and looked at his friend in exasperation.
His friend had a sunny temperament, which was totally 180 degrees different from his own. If he was the gloomy, geeky kid sitting in an dark corner of the class, then his friend would be like a bubbly, hyperactive kid running (& occasionally tripping on his own feet) with his friends on the playground. But even if you ask Hades, other than his wife, only his friend could be considered to be his family.
Hades loved his friend as his own Father.
Even if he was not his biological Father…
He didn’t even like his biological father. But Hades loved Param-Atma or the Creator (by whichever name, you may call him).
This wonderfully weird, awkward and often Dorky Guy was his Father who didn’t expect anything, but was ready to give him everything in the world. Hades loved him to the point that he was even ready to sacrifice his life when needed.
Hell, even his wife listened to his Father more than she listened to Hades himself.
