~Dark Kiss~ l
Hades sat in his throne with his wife by his side, their hands laced together as they judged souls for the remainder of the day. He listened as the soul in front pleaded his case to the Lord and Lady of the underworld. When he had finished with his case Hades had come up with a verdict, just then the large mahogany door to the throne room slowly opened. Hades looked up to see a white god stand before him.
Hades dismissed the soul for now as Thanatos entered bowing to Hades and his wife.
"Lord Hades, Lady Persephone. Hermes is here. He carry's a message from Lord Zeus" he said to them.
"Very well, bring him in Thanatos, thank you." The God of dead nodded and stepped out from the throne room bringing Hermes in.
Hermes had been to the Underworld countless amount of times yet he still couldn't get over his fear of the King of the Underworld. It was no secret that Hades had a strong dislike for Hermes, probably because of his close friendship with Persephone. Not to mention his fear of the darkness in the Underworld and Cerberus didn't help much either. Luckily for him Persephone was here, Hades was always a bit nicer when she was here.
"Yes Hermes, I don't have all night." Hades said in a monotone.
"Y-yes. S-Sorry L- L-ord H-ades. I- I h-ave a a m-m-essage from l-ord Zeus." Hermes looked over at Persephone and saw her give him a warm friendly smile.
"Go on Hermes," she said to him and turned to Hades, "Just try and look less intimidating towards him, can't you see he's scared?" she asked him quietly. Hades scoffed.
"Why? He should be used to me by now. It's not like he's going to die to death." He said. Persephone rolled her eyes and rested her chin In the palm of her left hand, while the other remind laced with Hades.
"Hermes." Persephone said. He nodded and gulped.
"R-right. P-ersephone y-y-ou ar-e requested to a-t-tend a me-eting at O-lympus." She raised a brow and nodded.
"Okay." She said. Hades slowly got up from his throne to help Persephone up from hers but Hermes cut him out.
"What else?" he snapped annoyed. Hermes slowly grew pale.
"H-he has o-nly c-alled f-for Pe-rsephone…" he said quietly. Hades narrowed his eyes about to give Hermes a piece of his mind until Persephone spoke.
"Hades," she began helping herself up and placing her hand gently on his shoulder, "It's going to be fine. I'll be okay. Promise." She said. Hades sighed and nodded.
"Fine. But if anything happens to you, you will tell me right?" he reminded. She smiled and nodded.
"Promise." She placed a gentile kiss on his lips before leaving with Hermes.
Hades sighed again and ran his fingers through his dark wavy locks. How was he supposed to finish with his work when he was anxious?
Persephone returned from Olympus late that night. The servants around the castle were getting ready for the night as she looked around the castle looking for Hades. She knew where he would be, in his study.
She walked along the halls of the castle on the marble floors barefoot until she reached his study. She knocked on the large mahogany doors softly waiting for Hades response.
"Enter." She opened the door to find Hades sitting at his desk with a few candles lit up giving off light. There was parchment scattered all over his desk and he sat In his comfy chair with ink and a glass of red wine in hand.
"Hades…" she said softly as she approached him. He looked up from his work quickly and spread his arms wide waiting for Persephone to embrace him, and she did.
"Seph…When did you get back?" he asked as he kissed the top of her head.
"Just now really." She said, her face lay in his chest.
"What did he want?" he asked. Persephone pursed her lips a little reluctant to answer.
"Aphrodite was there... so was Adonis." Hades narrowed his eyes and a sudden burst of anger began to bubble inside him and Persephone felt it. However, she stayed glued to him.
"What did they want?" he asked again.
"So you know how there was a rumor that he is my," she was reluctant to say it but did anyways, she didn't want him to find out from anyone else, "lover. But he's not! You know that right?"
"So Aphrodite wanted to keep him all to himself but I didn't want her to do that because then that would mean I would never get to see him again."
"And that's bad because?" he asked annoyed.
"Because I care for him! He is like a son, nothing more. Hades, please."
"So Zeus came up with the agreement that he would spend one third of the year with Aphrodite and the second with me, and the third with whomever. So when I'm with my mother he will be there with me."
"Your mother must be happy." He muttered as he began playing with her hair. Persephone pulled away from him and narrowed her emerald eyes at him placing her hands on her hips.
"What the hell is that supposed to mean?" Persephone spat.
"It means your mother will have fun setting you two up."
"I do not like him way! How could you?"
"How could I what? When you're gone you know what I hate the most, is the thought of you being with another man. And knowing your mother she'll be perfectly okay with it." Persephone scoffed and crossed her arms over her chest.
"Minthe, Leuce. Do those names ring a bell?"
"That is different! Leuce was around before you and Minthe seduced me. Not the other way around."
"Not really. They were still pretty." She mumbled.
"As is Adonis." Hades said. Persephone gave a weak smile before taking a step closer to him.
"Not as handsome as you." She said.
"And they were not nearly as beautiful as you." He said pressing his lips to hers passionately. He picked her up in a bridal style, their lips never separating and then he transported them to their bedchambers.
They lay together tangled in bed sheets of crimson, their faced each other and smiled. Persephone leaned towards Hades and kissed his cheek.
"I love you." Persephone murmured.
"As I love you." Hades replied. He pulled her into an embrace and Persephone took in his scent.
"… I was thinking…" Persephone said. Hades raised a brow.
"Maybe, If we tried we could… you know, have a child? That's honestly the only reason why I took care of Adonis, I thought maybe if I raised him…" She didn't need to continue, Hades knew exactly what she had in mind.
"Seph. You know we can't. I'm sorry im infertile. But there is nothing we can do." Hades was upset as well; he wanted to have children with his beloved. But being the God of the Underworld that made it nearly impossible.
"We could ask Aphrodite and Hestia," she began playing with his dark wavy locks, "She might help us, I mean then she'll know that I would back away from her lover."
"You and Aphrodite have a rocky history. What makes you think she'll be of help to us?"
"She has nothing against you. You are old friends. That is also when Hestia comes in handy. She can pretty persuasive if you ask me."
"What about me? Aren't I persuasive?" he asked. Persephone smiled.
"Hades, honestly I think one of the reasons people listen to you is because they find you intimidating."
"What's so bad about that? It gets the job done doesn't it?" he joked kissing het nose, she giggled and shook her head.
"But, can we try?" she asked softly.
"Sure we've got nothing to loose." He said.
"Promise." He said kissing her.
