Friday Night in Hades
And, as Mum’s dropped by with the spring seed catalogues, we order takeout from the Erinyes’ new place. It’s a good service – within twenty minutes Tisiphone is landing in the courtyard. (Cerberus goes nuts until his left head spots a newly arrived cat, down by the ferry).
I fish for plates and cutlery while Pluto opens a bottle of Dionysus Nouveau and Mum slices bread. Then we delve into the cartons and settle in for the evening, talking over events above and below; Medusa’s new hairdo, Hermes’ latest escapade and what Hera will do when she discovers the truth about Zeus and Leda.
Mum finds the Fortune Talon in her soup.
