((Jakob is Hades))
Jakob listened silently to what was going on around him, sitting still. Suddenly, he heard a few of the other patrons talking excitedly, tossing the name 'Ares' around quite a bit.
He jolted, his head shooting up. He spilled the rest of his now cold coffee as he bolted upright in his seat, turning his burning eyes sharply towards them.
((I have to go for a while. :P))
((Me too. In my time zone, it's time for bed. Be on later!))
'Nailed it' Anna thought as she heard the word 'sea'. Carefully she got up and sidled over to the table where it appeared a reunion was happening. She lifted her chin slightly, attempting to give a slight impression at ever here on this horrid place called Earth, she still held some superiority as the wife of Zues.
"Hello brother." She said to Poseidon, slightly spitting out the word brother.
((Okay :P ))
Allison heard some commotion inside the coffee shop as a waitress was yelled at by the manager to clean a spill. She looked in the windows to see a heated discussion taking place between two men and a woman. Finally, something exiting! she thought to herself before getting up and walking back inside. The first word to hit her ears was a hushed yet recognizable "Ares".
Ryder grinned, "Belle seems... fitting. I go by Ryder."
((I should go too. bye! ))
Suddenly many names were hitting Allison's ears: Ares, Aphrodite, Poseidon. And something inside her snapped and she felt the huntress with come out. She walked straight over to the table and said, "Let's see here, you with the leather jacket, you're Ares. You with the disgustingly perfect face, you must be Aphrodite. And you with the blue eyes who she just called brother, you're Poseidon. And the one who just called you brother is obviously Hera."
((I have a few moments before I have to go)) Jakob suddenly stood, his eyes narrowed. He nearly shoved the table over as he started to hurry to leave, yanking his hood down lower. There were too many familiar names being thrown around. He started to hurry to move towards the door, trying to keep his face hidden from view as he mumbled ancient curses under his breath.
Out of the corner of her eye, Allison saw the man with the hood try to make a hasty escape but she stopped him with her voice. "A hooded-man over there... I know you, too... But, who are you..."
"No, you don't know me." Jakob growled. He glared up at her resentfully with his harsh green eyes. A fire burned there, smoldering like the dying embers of a fire. A few tufts of his white hair poked out from under his hood. "So leave me alone, huntress."
Allison retreated back into her shell a little under his harsh gaze. But, had he just called her the huntress? He knows. "How do you know who I am?" she asked curiously.
Jakob just shrugged. He kept staring at her. He hadn't meant to let that slip. He bit his tongue, silently cursing himself. Now she knew that he knew her. It wouldn't be long before she would connect the dots and remember him, the way he had reigned over the Underworld. He didn't want that. He stared for few more seconds, with eyes that burned and froze at the same time, before starting to leave again.
(Sorry for jumping in late. Xiyrainia is Nyx.)
Xiyra could hear the names and clues being thrown around, keeping to herself for the moment. If they wanted to speak with her, they could easily come and ask her to join the conversation.
Aphrodite's eyes darted around. So now everyone in the coffee shop was a god or goddess? That seemed unreal. She was happy to see Ares (of course) and Posiden, but Hera....well they didn't always get along. Come to think of it, most people didn't get along with Hera. But family was family, right?
Alyssa sighed and returned to the coffee shop. She saw a huddle of people around one of the tables. She heard names being tossed around. Ares, Aphrodite, Hera, Posiden. Her eyes flashed at the last name. She and Posiden were not exactly friends. She walked over to the table. "So, you're all gods and goddesses?" She asked.
Ares nodded at the new girl, "Well, I am and she is... I guess the other two are too."
Allison began to follow the mysterious man with green eyes and white hair. "Hey!" she called to him, hurrying to reach his side.
((so, how exactly should I do this?))
Jakob glanced over his shoulder and let out an old curse. He sped up a little, trying outpace the girl, the huntress, who was following him. "Leave me be! I don't want to deal with old squabbles!" He called back.
((Just jump in. You could be like sitting and listening to the conversation or jump into the main conversation... Whatever you want really.))
Allison's eyebrows creased in thought. "Old squabbles? So, I do know you!" she said, she sped up even more so that she was right behind him.
"Ah well this seems to be a nice family reunion doesn't it?" Anna scoffed, looking around at all the faces she knew all to well. She had never really liked anyone in her family, being gods and goddesses of Olympus sort of inflated people's egos, and she couldn't stand it. "I am so glad to see you all again!" She remarked with a false smile, "I left Olympus to get away from all this." she muttered under her breath, and crossed her arms.
