Andela beamed. “ yes! I’m one of the few of her children who lived with her...my mortal parent passed before I was born. I left Olympus shortly after I became old enough to do so, since I didn’t want to be a burden...I -I had a few problems with other gods...and then I was shipwrecked.”
“ well...I really only visited my uncles palaces, and my aunts and a few of my cousins. “ she said smiling as she let the snakes carefully.
“...I I can’t tell you what they looked like unfortunately.” She said sadly.
“ my mother’s plane, is like a giant field? Sometimes flowers, sometimes wheat or other crops, and during the harsh seasons it’s barren, but it’s always warm, and music plays quite frequently.
“ cousin Dionysus, his palace is very similar, only it’s rows of trees, and he has rooms I’m not allowed to go in, my mothers descisom though I can’t fathom why...”
“ Uncle Poseidon’s is like the beach. It’s...I do love the beach...it’s not as pretty as the forest in cousin artemis’, I can hear the wildlife she has there, and it’s amazing!”
Entropy listened intently. “It sounds absolutely wonderful.” she said, smiling even though she knew Andela couldn’t see. “I’m going to go out and try to get you something to sleep on, okay? Will you be fine on your own?”
Entropy looked to the mouth of the cave, and then cautiously left. She didn’t like leaving - it was just another opportunity for people to get hurt. But she found a flock of geese fairly quickly and, before she could accidentally turn them to stone, had gathered enough feathers for a mangled mattress to be made. She’d sleep on this and Andela would sleep in her real bed.
Entropy returned after only a dozen minutes of being gone. She was surprised to find that Andela had already mostly finished making dinner. She dumped the mass of feathers onto the floor and used an old cloth to bind it together. “That was fast!” she said.
