.. Hell Beneath Us ..
As fleet as thought and bound by duty, I delve into the shadows in search of spring’s maiden.
The lifelessness of the Underworld has become an eerie, horrifying reflection of the mortal earth above; cut off from Demeter’s bounty, all has withered and died. The urgency of my mission brings renewed courage to my heart, though my hands quiver still.
She is not difficult to find; the Dark Ruler has no intention of hiding his prize, and has instead positioned her proudly beside his throne. The depthlessness of his gaze brings me pause, for a moment, but I am safe in the service of the supreme ruler.
My message is delivered, and through some miracle, Hades obeys. He takes his wife in his arms, and I watch as she is consumed fully by his cloak of shadow. But then her hand is in mine, and together we seek the light.
