Thanatos pondered over what his mother had said. Maybe the idea would work. Maybe it wouldn’t. But you will never find out unless you tried. He ended up pacing in his bedroom while his brother sprawled lazily across his armchair.
When the night was over, Julian took the girls back home and Apollo returned to Olympus, leaving Thanatos with his brother to return home.
The two of them returned to the group and they weren’t surprised to see that the group was still charged with energy.
“Do you think she’s having a good time?” Thanatos leaned over to Amora, who nodded.
The next day, Thanatos passed his work on to another reaper who took it without protest. But he did smile at his boss and say, “It’s about time you went out and enjoyed yourself.” Thanatos wanted to frown, but another reaper piped up, agreeing with her co-worker.
And so Thanatos found himself the next day waiting outside the movie theatre with her. Her brothers had already assured him that they would be in the cinema with him and all he needed to do was watch for their cues.
