Meg blinked a few times as the cat woke, and smiled. “Good mor-“
A scream escaped her lips as she realized this cat could talk, and she ran behind a tree. She leaned her back against it, thinking it over.
There’s no way a cat can talk. There’s no way a cat can talk! Right? Right?
She gave a deep breath out, and with wide eyes peeked her wide eyes from behind the tree. “You….You can….you can talk? I’m not hallucinating….am I? Oh Zeus, what am I getting myself into? I’m talking to a cat. Did Hades get fed up with me for that time in Tartarus and decided to give me a bit of insanity to ‘go with that attitude’?”
As she began to ramble, she started to forget the cat was even present, and the quiet phoenix hadn’t even entered her mind since seeing the cub.
Nethraunien’s ears pulled back at the scream, well if he wasn’t awake before he sure was now. He stood shaking out his fur then looked at the tree from which the girl was looking around from. “No, you’re not hallucinating, I can talk, and if you prefer I can shift into human form. My name is Nethraunien and that,” he nods up to where the Firebird was perched, whom upon hearing the scream merely rolled his eyes and sighed, “is my brother Urúvion.”
The cub’s head tilted to the side. “Hades? As in the greek god Hades? Huh…I’ve heard of him, but never actually met him…” The cub shrugged. “Anyway, what’s your name?”
