“He’s happy, Enaya really baby’s him. It was the best thing that's ever come from hell.” She teased slightly but got back to the point, “what do i need to get?”
He pulled out a picture and handed it to her, “It’s rather simple. But the reapers I normally call can't get it because it's heavily locked with magic.” Seeing the picture it was just a simple locked container, “You don't need to know what's inside.”
She laughed at him, “Isn't that Pandora's box?”
He grew silent, “Just go get it.”
Ena put a finger up, “Wait, who’s really guarding it? Reapers would just back down because of a little magic.”
Hades didn't amuse her or dance around the subject, “It's not guarded. It's completely on its own for all I'm aware of. But they all come back empty handed, and they all say it's just too many barriers.”
“And why would I be able to get it?” She asked, watching him closely for any sign he might be trying to hide.
“Because the gods never count on a soul going through magic and taking it. You'll be unaffected and just walk past the barriers like nothing. Souls aren't usually accounted for with the magic from above.” he turned to look at her, “I’ll owe you one if you do this for me.”
She hummed for a moment, “It wouldn't be the first time someone escaped the underworld- '' She was cut short by the glare he gave her, simply nodding her head obediently, “Alright, where is it located? Greece like usual?”
“No, they were a little smarter with this one. You'll have fun in the arctic.” he held a hand out to her, “Picture.”
Handing the picture back to him she raised a brow, “Got anything to track the box or do i just gotta guess where the rest of the reapers searched?”
He shook his head, “Don't be ridiculous, there's a very clear beacon emitted from the place, you can't miss it.”
When she looked out the portal indeed she could spot the beacon from there quite clearly and obvious considering they were supposed to protect it, “Oh, I see what you mean… isn't that a safety concern?”
He shrugged, “When have we done anything right according to humans?” pushing her through as he watched her turn around. About to say something when he interrupted, “I don't want an answer, just go.”
She would have rolled her eyes at him if she could, walking through and heading towards the beacon. Seeing the barriers clearly but just like Hades had said she could easily move past them.
Yet as she got closer continuing past the barriers she was stopped. An ax landing right in front of her, steps approaching her, “Another of Hades dogs.”
Ena sighed and groubled she knew the place wouldn't just be left unattended, “I wouldn't call me that.” Turning to the side to face the figure she recognized him as Ares, quite a peculiar guard dog to have, “But I do see a dog.”
He narrowed his eyes at Soul, “Leave before I get rid of you.”
Ena chuckled, “From what I'm aware you can't really hurt a soul.” she grabbed the ax that was at her feet,”Not with this flimsy thing.”
“Would you like to put it to the test?” he asked, getting closer to reach for the ax.
“No.” she answered, “I just want the box.” Dropping the ax as a part of her soul separated from her main figure, “It would be safer in the underworld if you ask me.”
Ares had continued to walk closer, “I dont recall the last time we asked for a mortals advice.”
Ena laughed at that, “Mortal, me.” She pointed at herself, “I wish.” Making him ramble was rather easy in her head, “But for a guard dog you sure do bark a lot.” the ax fell from her hands as the figure in front of his disappeared.
He turned in the direction of the box seeing as she already had it in her grasp. Running towards her but seeing just as she smiled and opened a portal. Leaving just as he was about to reach her. The portal closing and the ever so familiar underworld welcoming her back.
