*AN* So I didn't do an AN last chapter, I don't know why. Thanks to everyone who has read this so far. I'll try to update at least once each week.
I wonder, does Persephone know anything about Greek mythology? I know I learn't everything I know about it moments ago, but still, didn't she ever get curious. I'm asking myself this because, I don't think her "boyfriend" would be Hades (or Hades reincarnated, whatever) if she had read what I'd just read on the internet. Persephone, and Hades seem somewhat expecting me to talk.
"Hi," I say quickly. Darkness seemed to surround him, and shadows encompassed him. Then I noticed another thing about him, he was completely absorbed by Persephone, he looked down at her lovingly, not what I expect from God of the underworld and the lord of death.
"Well I better get back to my dorm now, just came by to see you," his voice is smooth and authoritative, and also filled with love.
"Okay, see you tomorrow." They kiss, not just a peck on the cheek either, they kiss is full on the lips, long and passionately, it's way too intimate.
Do they realise I'm in the room? I wonder silently.
When the kiss ends, Hades leaves, and Persephone gently shuts the door. She looks at me, probably just remembering my existence, she blushes. "Oh fuck," I didn't expect her to curse, she looks so small and innocent, "sorry, I-I forgot you were there, that was kind of personal."
"It's fine." She smiled, reassured.
"I think we need to go down to the dining hall for dinner now."
"Okay." I follow her through this maze of a school, I don't know how she doesn't get lost. We get to a large dining hall, there are hundreds of students filling the room. I follow Persephone, there is a huge selection of food, Persephone chooses a pasta dish, and I choose the same. We head to a table, where two girls and a guy are already sitting. Persephone sits next to a blond girl, and I sit next to her with no-one on my other side, facing the golden-haired guy.
"Who's she, Kore?" The golden-haired guy asks Persephone.
"Oh, this is my new roommate, Athena. Athena this is Apollo," she gestures to him with her fork, "and that's his twin Artemis." She moves her fork to point at the girl sat next to Apollo, who is almost identical to him, but her hair is slightly browner. "Oh, and this is Selene," she points to the the girl next to her who has silvery blond hair and blue eyes.
"Hi," says Selene.
They seem nice enough.
I start eating my cheese covered pasta.
"So, Athena, do you like it here?" Artemis looks directly into my eyes as she asks this. I swallow my mouthful of pasta.
"Yeah, it seems really... nice here."
"Do you like archery?" I have never done any archery in my life.
"Don't let my sister convince you to compete against her in a game of archery," says Apollo, "She's international junior champion, and world record holder. She never misses her target, no matter what her target may be." Artemis just grins.
"Do you have any interests?" Selene asks.
"I don't really have any hobbies or anything... But I sort of like reading, I prefer non-fiction; I'm really interested in science in most of it's forms, though Biology's my favourite."
"So what are you guys interested in?"
"I like astrology and astronomy," replies Selene.
"I like a whole load of things, but I love music," says Apollo.
"You already know I like Archery."
"And I love all plants and animals." We start conversing about our interests.
"Everyone!" Calls out a boy about my age, with slightly curly dark hair and dark eyes, every single person shuts up instantly, "everyone, I just want to say that..." He pauses. He's obviously too young to drink, but he's slurring every word just as if he were drunk. "Just want to say that, I'm throwing another party," there was a small applause, I'm surprised that some of the people applauding look like teachers.
"When?" Calls a female voice.
"Tonight," there's an even louder applause. He sits back in his seat.
"Dionysus," replies Apollo.
"Since when do teachers approve of underage drinking and parties?"
"They aprove because Dionysus, is the God of wine, pleasure and festivity," says Artemis. "It's like how they let me go and shoot little animals with my bow."
"I still don't get it."
"There are only a few set rules here," says Apollo, "we basically only show a pretence of a normal prestigious boarding school. I think the only actual rule here is not to kill another student."
"And anything to do with our past life or whatever you want to call it, is encouraged," Selene explains.
"Oh, that's strange."
"Yeah but you'll get used to it," replies Persephone. I finnish off my pasta.
Eventually me and Persephone go up to our room, and get ready for bed. Once I'm showered and changed, I jump into my warm new bed. I quickly drift into sleep. I awake, I don't know what woke me, the room is dark, and I see a shadowy figure near the door. I see that Persephone isn't in her bed, and the person is small, so I come to a logical conclusion.
"Athena? Did I wake you, sorry."
"Where are you going?"
"Well you were asleep, so I was thinking on going to Dionysus's party, I think it could be fun."
"Wait what time is it?"
"What time do classes start?"
"Our classes start really late for a high school, eleven."
"Okay I'll go with you."
"Yay! I didn't think you'd want to go. Okay get ready, I'll wait here for you."
I put on a black dress, and black ballet flats. I curl my brown hair into ringlets. My makeup is kept to only eye makeup, I apply eyeliner, mascara and silver eye shadow that matches my eyes. I walk out of the en suite. "Wow."
"You look so pretty."
"Thanks," now that the light's on I can see what Persephone's wearing. Persephone's wearing a mint green dress, with small fake red and black roses covering the bottom half of it. She has a black belt around her waist and she's wearing green heels. "I like what you're wearing."
"Thanks, Hades bought it for me. Anyway lets go to the party."
*AN* So that was Chapter 3. Hope you're enjoying it so far.
