Ena went into her room, grabbing the orb shed left aside in her hurry. Grabbing it in her hurry and scratching it up, “Persephone… please Persephone!” She called, getting desperate without an immediate answer.
Her calmness had gone away the moment she crossed the portal, she’d bitten off more than she could shew, and was seeing the repercussions with Enaya piecing her falling fingers back together.
Altivo looked between the two as he let out a whine and Enaya hushed him.
Soon enough the orb lit up and Persephone popped up, “You screamed? Need something?”
“I need to call in that favor. Enaya is breaking apart too quickly!” She was panicking, looking from the orb to Enaya, she was getting more concerned by the second. Seeing her left eye losing most of the light to it, turning pitch black.
Persephone was calm, “Come down then, I’ll fix her up and make some dinner.”
“Diner.” She looked at the time and it was well past six pm, “Persephone this is important!”
“So is my dinner, it’s not like you’ll die anyways.” Persephone said, her figure was blurred but she was clearly walking somewhere, “Now come on down and take a deep breath oh deadly air or something.”
Ena was about to say something back when the orb shut off. She screamed, angry as she grabbed the orb and threw it aside.
“It's fine Ena, time won't make a difference.” Enaya assured her, grabbing the helmet from Ena’s other hand and setting it gently on the table not to make noise.
But Ena’s form continued to waver, the image of a child briefly visible, “Oh shut up! You don't know anything!”
Enaya grabbed onto her, using her own magic to keep Ena in place and bring back the shadowy figure, “Let’s just go down. Besides, I'm hungry.” Saying this she was the one to open the portal and gently control and form Ena into a small pitch black ball to bring her along to the underworld.
Stepping through it however Persephone grabbed them by the arm and dragged them both along, accidentally pulling out one of Enayas fingers.
She stared at it for a moment confused, “Well… now I see why she was so panicky. Well come along then, I know this is your favorite entrance to the underworld, it's rather quiet compared to the rest.”
Grabbing Enaya’s arm instead it was quite stiff, like a body that had been dead a long time the muscles contracted and remained stiff even when pulled around.
Enaya stopped letting herself be pulled around, “As an honor as it is to have dinner for soul’s sake just fix me. I'm still dead regardless if I am healed or not, but for soul it apparently makes a difference.”
Persephone sighed, “I know, so let's hurry and get you this.” She walked ahead quickly, Enaya walking close behind holding Ena in her arms.
“See it'll all be fine even-”
“You wouldn't understand.” Ena cut her off, “I'd rather you stay quiet.”
Persephone opened a door and walked in, grabbing bottles and glasses as she served two, “Have a drink.”
“Persephone!” Ena screamed, seeing as this was only going the direction Persephone wanted.
“Calm down Ena, All you gotta do is tell her to eat, the fix is in the food… and wine, i had to make sure you would actually have dinner with me.” She complained, “Besides, I even made desert.”
Enaya didn’t disagree, starting to down the drink as Ena was getting control of her emotions again. Taking her normal shape, “Do you even care?” She said without being fully conscious of what she said nor to who.
Persephone chuckled, ”Of course I care Ena, you're a part of the family down here… I dont think those are reassuring words coming from us… so let me rephrase that.” Persephone was quite a second, “You are precious to us, and we won't let go of you without a fight or two.”
Ena was back to her senses, slightly confused over what Persephone said, “That question was for Enaya.” She explained awkwardly.
Persephone's expression turned to a pout, “So much for my heartfelt words.”
“Your words are…” Ena tried to find the proper way to thank her for trying “Appreciated, I'll keep them in mind.”
Persephone smiled, stating to set the plates, “Ena you can ask for help, it's alright to not be able to handle everything.”
Ena looked from Persephone to Enaya, “Relying on others isn't something I'm good at.” She pointed at Enaya, “As you can see.”
Persephone shrugged, “I’m aware, im not blind nor am i stupid.” She turned and grabbed another bottle from her counter, and handed it over to her, “Have her drink this too, and we can sit and chat till Hades gets back.
