Dual thrones that seat both the king and queen. Here, they rule their domain. Here, decisions of damnation or reward are weighted and measured.

Persephone padded into the throne room on bare feet. She barely makes a noise. She poured a glass of wine, all but tossing herself onto her throne. She looks as if she's preparing for a very long night. Her fingers play with the gold band on her left hand.

Her deep purple chiton is both modest and alluring. It compliments her skin, covering much of it, but allowing peeks at the golden flesh it conceals. Her blonde hair is still gathered in it's curls about her head.

Hades walks into the throne room, placing his scepter on it's stand, and sending Cerberus off, he sat down on the throne, next to his queen. He places a kiss on her forehead.

His white robe is long and stainless. He runs a hand through his beard and his dark eyes are on his queen.

Her hand extends to her King, linking with his. Her forest eyes are brooding, a rare thing for the spring goddess. She sips the wine silently, golden brow creased. Her legs are crossed, but her foot is wiggling.

He willingly links his hand with hers. His stormy eyes look deep into hers. He takes a sip of her wine. "How are you, my dear queen?"

Her forest eyes clash with his stormy ones. "I'm plotting, my sweet. Plotting and upset." She got up, kissing his hand before setting it on the arm of his throne. She paced in front of him, her plum robes billowing around her. Flashes of leg peek at him.

"Thanatos is rebelling once more." She said softly while she paced. "He took a young mage from topside, and brought him here. His thread has not severed, but he will wither to the point where it will if he stays here." This still didn't quite explain what had Persephone so angry.

Her next words explained it all. "He took him from love. For no reason beyond petty machination."

He looks at her with Altruistic eyes. "Hmm. What would you like to do about it? How long has the boy been here? Does he have a consort?" He was trying to see the problem, then deal with it. "The boy doesn't belong. I see this troubles you, but after all, he is in my realm. Do what you please with him." He said, walking over to the queen and grabbing her hand. "Thanatos will be dealt with the the utmost importance."

Her voice raised in frustration. "No! That is the problem. He has no consort, no escort. He gave his life into a deal with Thanatos. The contract is so flimsy, my nails could shred it without thought!" She threw up her hands, continuing to pace.

She stopped as he grabbed her hand, looking up at him. He far outstripped his wife in height. Her face was angry. "Thanatos needs stopped, but we need to know why. Why and what he's working toward. Why he wants this mage. I have already set things to motion to get the woman he loves to come fetch him. She'll have to earn him back, and that will be difficult, but not impossible."  She gave a huff of breath.

There were rules that even the queen of the Underworld had to follow, and one of them was that, when someone entered with no escort and no higher purpose, they did not leave easily. Hence the mess, now.

Persephone stepped into Hades, leaning her forehead against his chest. Her shoulders relaxed. All of this had ratcheted the muscles into knots. She gave a sighof breath. Internally, she cursed Thanatos up and down for his schemes. Outwardly, she at least attempted to relax her muscles.

Hades sighed and pulled her closer. "My darling, As much as I want to help the young mage, we both know that he can't leave without a great deal of help. If this woman comes to fetch him back, then I can help, but I can't do much. You know how much it rages me when those who do not belong here appear." He said, his stormy eyes brewing rage. The only reason he did not keep the young mage here is because his wife was so upset about it. "I will help, but it will not be much." He said, kissing her forehead.

She lifted her head, her lips pouting slightly. "But even you are not so unreasonable to punish the boy for Thanatos' machinations. He would not be here, if it weren't for that..that...Oh, I don't even have a word for him! Tricks bring innocent eyes here. They don't belong." The little goddess said.

"We will do what we can. I can't watch him suffer, or know that the girl he loves does so, as well. It will hurt. You know it will." She turned sad eyes up to her husband.

His dark stormy eyes land on her. "He doesn't belong. His woman will come for him, and they will have a hard time leaving, but they will do so." He said, running a hand through her hair. At his feet, Cerberus pawed at his leg. He was hungry.

The sound of sharp heels of heavy boots echoed off the floor of the palace, a slow and lazy tempo that caught the King and Queen's attentions before catching sight of their mutual charge. He had a fondness for the shade and seemed to only prefer moving within its veil. However, as his footsteps lessened in frequency and volume, he stepped out of the dull shadows and crossed his arms over his chest. His eyes cringed slightly in the light and he sighed in annoyance.

"Hello Mother. Father," There was no hiding the tinge of poison in his voice as he addressed Hades. He even accompanied it with a glare from beneath his heavy-lidded eyes. "Couldn't help but overhear your conversation. Large voices do carry, you know, and my hearing has never been dull. I hope you'll forgive my transgression," He said without breaking eye contact with his mother, Persephone. "I have a bit of a proposition to make."

Hades turned his head at the sound of clicking heels. He knew who was coming as soon as he heard it. "Zagreus, what good could you place in this situation?" He said, his stormy eyes locked on his son.

The God-child glanced at Hades for a brief moment in recognition of his question. He turned his eyes back to his mother and gave her the answer.

"You know very well of my shape changing abilities. I've tricked people before, countless times over the many centuries past. I don't doubt I could fool Thanatos just as easily."

Persephone looked at her only son. She only brushes her hand over his shoulder very briefly. Her boy didn't like to be touched. The venom between father and son radiated. Stern and saturnine father meets rebellious son. He had her wildness in him.

Persephone walked away from the two men, picking her wine up once again. She weighed the plan her son presented. She tried to keep the crawling dread from her skin. Sooner or later, her husband would drive their son away from her. And there was little she could do. "Tell me your plan, my son." She said, her back to both. She knew her eyes would give too much.
