Ena felt heavy in the early morning. She looked at the orb she’d taken out yesterday and tapped on it calling out, “Hera.” Enaya was standing in the corner of the room watching this all take place.
The orb shined very dimly, almost unable to show the person when an annoyed voice answered, “Ena I suppose.” Hera’s voice said, “What are you calling for?”
“I’ll meet Ares today…if that's alright? Where do I find him?” She asked.
Hera snickered, “Oh it’ll be fine.” her figure was obscured in the orb, “I’ll send you a messenger to take you instead. Wouldn’t want you getting lost.”
Her laugh rang on a little longer as the orbs' light became stronger and out from it walked a tiny peacock. His feathers were ruffled as he fixed himself up.
“Tiny.” Ena muttered, “You're the one who’ll take me?”
He nodded, “Just one moment.” He ruffled his feathers, taking one of them and handing it to Ena, “Hold this.”
Ena looked at Enaya confused, but with a smile she walked over and took the feather instead. Its size became that of a normal feather, then growing bigger as she dropped it on the floor when losing her grip.
The feather merged down with the floor, taking the form of a door. The peacock sighed, “Just open it, it’ll show you, your way to Ares… door will disappear after a few hours.” muttering about how mortals couldnt follow instructions.
Ena glanced at the door now in the middle of the floor, reaching for the nob while also grabbing the peacock and opened the door, “First day on the job… tiny bird?”
“No, I’ve been at this for well over a couple hundread years-“ he was saying.
Enaya interrupted walking alongside them through the door, “But a houndread years isn’t that long in your position. Also are you always this tiny?”
The peacock was irritated, “No I am not.”
“Good I might step on you by accident,” Ena mentioned, “So why don’t you return to a bigger size.”
The peacock wanted to glare at them as Ena was carrying him, “I can’t do that. Only Hera can change my size.”
“Poor you.” Ena said, feeling the birds glare on her, walking through what felt like an endless hall.
“This door to the right.” The peacock pointed, “Now just leave me on the floor.” As Ena set him down he looked to be waddling away, “Try and not splash blood everywhere… and die quietly if you must.” continuing on his way as he muttered about cleaning another mess.
Ena snorted at him, opening the door, “If only death actually took me.”
When the door swung open she saw Ares idly sitting by at a table. The room had weapons as decorations, a wide window opened behind him, it looked like a rather bright room for the god of war.
He looked up at her, his eyes narrowing at corpse, “Take a seat.”
Ena looked back for a second, giving Enaya a knowing glare, signaling her to sit and take the only other chair at the table while Ena stood behind her.
The way Enaya smiled and sat down seemed to rub Ares the wrong way, “You don’t seem as gloomy as I expected you to be.”
He raised a brow, “Sorry to disappoint?” Confused with her blunt words he looked back at Ena, “I didn’t realize your body was-“
“Pretty?” Enaya cut in, “Oh yes I’m perfect… except for the fact I’m dead, then again what’s so great about being alive that I can't do?”
Ena sighed, she thought she’d beed over this enough with corpse but apparently not enough, “Lively is what I’m sure you mean.”
He cleared his throat, “Yes, so lively, all smiles… it’s kinda creepy.”
“I cou-“ Ena covered Enaya’s mouth before she could utter another word.
Ena hushed her and spoke, “She’s very talkative too. But let’s get to the point. Your mother asked me to be your playmate for a day, what do you want?”
“You called me a dog.” He uttered, “so I want you to bark.”
Enaya giggled, “I do see the resemblance.” It was dead silent for a moment, he glared at corpse and Ena simply grumbled as Enaya continued, “But it’s alright, I like dogs.”
Ares closed his hands into fists, “I see the resemblance in you two now.”
