Ahhh yes, I am back, my loves! I know I have been missing for a while, in which I will be able to fill you in about soon. I know I took in a lot of clientele for the GC law office and just kinda left… but you know, it was that time of year that I just needed to get out into nature and stretch my legs for a while.
I am sure my children will be most pleased with my return, along with my very devoted executive assistant, Aegis. I do hope Dionysus comes by the OA building soon to bring me some of his fine wine since as you know, I do have a taste for the finer things in life.
Demeter’s stomach dropped as she heard her favorite nephew’s name. It wasn’t a coincidence that she found herself here. And now, she was concerned for her Ares’ safety, too. She had left him a letter knowing he would come if she didn’t return on time. Was she leading him into a trap?
She closed the office door and strode to the elevator. She wasn’t quite sure where she was going as she pressed the button to the lobby, but she knew that she couldn’t sit in the office anymore. She needed to take action.
Her farmhouse-style cottage, surrounded by large sunflowers and rose bushes, was her retreat. It sat next to a small stream, overlooking a meadow. It was sheltered away from the city’s bustling sounds and had a very jagged dirt road leading up to it.
“Thank you, Marsha,” Demeter choked, eyes watering with tears. She felt guilty that she didn’t go out in the field to check on the bushel herself, but she was glad that she had such a nosey neighbor who had gotten a green thumb from watching her garden all these years.
