LA-Uninvited Guests- 6The Brotherhood scent was growing increasingly stronger as they neared the heart of their territory. The small dog also seemed to be getting more nervous the closer they got. Not even once had she looked back at the siblings since they left the riverbank.
As soon as the dogs stepped out of the brush, into a clearing that seemed to serve as the packs headquarters, the siblings were immediately greeted by a dog that looked like themselves, but a little huskier. He obviously wasn't too happy to see them, as he had his teeth bared and his hair on end.
Persephone quickly gave her brother a small nip, as he had instinctually bared his teeth at the threatening dog.
Quickly regaining his composure Hades stepped up, gently pushing Delta out of his way. The dog before him growled louder as Hades came closer.
"I am Hades." He said, his voice strong, but not threatening. "I take it you are the leader of this pack?" He continued, not giving the dog a chance to respond."One of your packmates r
LA-Uninvited Guests- 3A voice from the brush, made Persephone jump. She spun around to the source of the voice to see a small dog standing a few yard away. She looked to her brother, who had started to let out a low growl, but upon seeing the dog he stopped and stared at her, unimpressed.
"You say this is Brotherhood territory?" Hades questioned, never taking his eyes off the small dog. "We bring news of one of your Brothers. Take us to your leader." Hades voice was strong and assertive, but not overbearing. The pack would probably hate him for being the bearer of bad news, he didn't want to come off too demanding or scare the dog that he had been addressing.
Persephone stepped in front of her brother, pushing him back slightly. "We mean you or your pack no harm." She said, her voice seeming so gentle compared to her brothers. "I'm Persephone and this is my brother Hades." She continued, trying to be as polite as possible."We bring news about your packmate Echo." She paused, "It would probably be better if
LA-Uninvited Guests- 1It had taken Persephone almost two days to catch up to her brother, courtesy of her brittle paws. She had to take long breaks every few miles, or they would get so bad she would be practically immobile. Lucky for her, Hades was worried about her and finally stopped to wait for her.
Together they trekked on, taking breaks so Persephone could rest her feet. At least thats what Hades said, he would never admit that the hot sun combined with his inability to properly regulate his body temperature, were taking a toll on him.
They had been walking for several days when they came upon a river in the distance. The promise of fresh water compelled them to pick up their pace and soon they were approaching the bank.
Persephone wanted nothing more than to jump in and soak her aching paws, but Hades stopped her. Her excitement had gotten in the way of her judgement, and she quickly realized why Hades had stopped her. There were other dogs around. She should have been able to smell them far before
RP Post - Meeting a Death God - FinalPersephone sighed, wishing she hadn't tried to push Echo so hard. "Hades...go." She said, keeping her eyes on the quickly fading pit, but hades knew what she meant and set off to find the pack Echo had spoken of.
Persephone settled down next to the blind pit, "I'm so sorry." She whispered. "We'll find your pack. I promise." Echo was too weak to respond, instead she let out a small whine. Persephone sighed, and rested her head between her paws. She couldn't help but think that if she hadn't tried to move her they would have been able to find her more food, but it was too late now. Trying to stand had taken every ounce of strength the pit had left and had left her worse than ever.
Meanwhile, Hades kept heading north, he was bound to run into someone eventually. The only problem was they might not be too happy to see him. He sighed, secretly pitying Echo and regretting he had been so aloof towards her.
He hadn't been walking too terribly long before he came upon a structure. A Theatre of
RP Post - Meeting a Death God - 8Persephone's voice was soft, but firm. "Well, we're not leaving you here to die." She said matter-of-factly. "At least let us bring you somewhere safe and get you some food. If you can't walk, we can help you." She continued with a certain sense of determination in her voice. Then she added, "And you're not a burden. No one that need help is a burden. Besides we don't have any agenda to keep anyways." She said smiling.
"Come on, hun. It's time to get up." Persephone said softly. She nudged Echo with her muzzle as Hades came up on Echos other side, ready to help her up.

"Gratitude?" Persephone said, raising an eyebrow at her Hades, who simply shrugged in return. "I don't hear that too often." She quickly returned her attention back to Echo. "Why don't you come with us. Were new here and haven't quite settled in yet so we may be able to help eachother." Hades started to object, but a stabbing glare from his sister quickly informed him that he wouldn't win this particular argument. Persephone continued, "We can do the hunting and you could tell us more about life around these parts, like about the packs and such."
