She grinned as she held the box and quickly looked for Hades. Such an easy win she couldn't help feeling something was soon to go horribly wrong. Finding Hades scolding Cerberus, “Quit nagging at the dog, and here.” she handed him the box and ruffled Cerberus' heads.
He held the box rather tight, his eyes wide for a second in astonishment, “This easy?”
“Well Ares was there, he threw an ax at me but that didn't turn out. Then he rambled on a bit without noticing half of me just grabbing the box.” She muttered this with a smile on her face, “It's kinda funny considering he's the god of war, and got bamboozled.” she chuckled and turned away from cerberus to look at Hades.
“He was the one guarding it?” Hades' expression was that of a man whose job all made sense now.
“So you did know someone was guarding it.” She hissed at him, “I could have gotten erased… which doesn't sound so bad but still. Do you wanna deal with a morales corpse if I leave?” She pointed at him, “No right, and I'm sure she'd bring a lot more souls to your door. And you love working, don't you?”
Hades held his hands up in defense, “I had suspicions nothing was clear. I can't exactly go up there whenever I want. I can only know so much.” he turned his back to her, “You can go now, I owe you one. So feel free to claim whatever you want. It doesn't have to be now.”
Ena sighed, he was already heading off after such a short conversation, “I'm not claiming my favor so don't answer me this if you don't want to. What's going to happen to the place I'm living in? Some things are eerie and not right.”
He stopped walking away but did not turn to look at her, “What did you hear?” He inquired, watching her from the corner of his eye.
But Ena moved around on her spot, blooming at nothing, “Place just feels different, havent heard nothing.” Keeping what the reaper had told her to herself for the time being.
Hades shrugged and continued on his way, “Some things aren't for mortals to know-”
“I am not a mortal, so go ahead tell me.” She pressured.
He didn't say anything, chuckling slightly at her brazen attitude, “Go home Ena, It’s late and your little corpse might feel lonely.” A warning tone as he sent her off.
She opened the portal beside herself seeing as Cerberus had gotten up and followed after Hades. Stepping back home the portal closed right behind her. The house was dark, Altivo was asleep and so was corpse. The need to rest made her look so human, so much so it always seemed to strike a little jealousy in Ena.
Looking over at the empty bottle shed instructed to use after the bath. Grabbing it she shoved it back in the same box. Only two extra bottles were left. If it wasn't enough she really needed to fasten production. But already she was preparing more, it was simply a tedious process that took time. Fermenting this and that, chanting spells here and there, the constant need to stop and replenish her energy without actually feeling tired always rubbed her the wrong way.
She slowly made her way to her own room, the door across from Enaya’s room and down the hall from the living room. Ena worked till the act of simply being a shadow against the ground seemed impossible, only to turn back to a little soul with barely recognizable features.
Her real soul had never aged, its appearance forever remaining that of a child when she couldn't sustain a shadow. A form she both resented and despised, seeing the clear difference from her shadowy black hands turn pale and human like was akin to a nightmare. Resting for a while, in order to later continue her work, this weakness that made her seem human, just made her feel uneasy.
Her figure was shaking as she left the room. Sitting down at the feet of corpse bed. Reminiscing of the past. In this exact form how she cried with no end over not being seen. Sleep was never an option to sooth her insomniac mind. Her only solace was having control now, the power to be seen and heard, all while also being able to inflict fear. A feeling that always made sure she was at the back of someone's mind. Love after all is something everyone takes for granted but fear is always perpetual.
Without saying anything at all Enaya moved her hand to reach out to Ena. Lightly brushing up against her soul. Enaya’s eyes opened up in the dark room, such a pure white color from them, they seemed to light up, shining with a small glow. The slight glow tha emitted from a substance that traveled from Enaya to Ena was a sight to behold.
Pulling back but watching for a second longer how Ena turned and looked at her with an aloof expression before it turned back to her usual shadow. That was the same expression she’d gotten from Ena for years.
Enaya didn't have to be told to do anything, she didn't need to be looked at even slightly, she didn't require an explanation and Ena did not desire anything. Ena would have calmly just waited for herself to recover, yet Enaya appeared to hold emotions at times like these. Almost like an older sister for a split second.
