    Summary

    (and how long i've been away)

    *

    No one knows this is their station. Mortal trains come and go from here, but no one knows the old steam train that chugs into town every six months belongs to a god. No one comes to wave her goodbye, and no one comes to welcome her either, anymore. There used to be celebrations and banquets and dancing. Hades would watch them all from his seat inside the train.

    Now, the wind is chill, and his wife is bundled up in her coat, with no one to greet her. "I always forget how unused to you the mortals are." She says when he's near, and smiles.

    "I've no idea what you mean." He replies, plunking the suitcases down, either side of her.

    Summary

    That’s the way Persephone's world works – no endings without new beginnings. Endless sorrow tangled with endless joy. She doesn’t know what to make of this mortal suffering, of the way it cripples even the strongest of men and never promises to heal.

    Maybe if she were Orpheus she’d try to understand it with a song. But she is not Orpheus, she doesn’t understand anything about music other than the way it makes her feel alive like only love and wine can.

    It dawns on her that there is no reason why it should be this way.

    “Will you teach me?”
