He had been waiting for this spot for a while. Out of all the cities and towns, the train would stop at, this was always one of his favorites. It was practically a gold mine of new clients and juicy gossip. It was usually enough to keep him busy even after the train moved on to the next destination. This time, however, he was not in his gleeful, hopeful mood. The train had brought him plenty of new clients heading to the town, but none of them had supplied him with the information he had been desperate to retrieve. Not a single word even hinted towards his beautiful, mastermind. Despite the soft smile that would appear in Hades’s lips with every passerby, he was not in a good mood. He was disappointed and slightly annoyed. Feelings that eventually caused him to close his office before making his way into the town.
Hades had no particular destination. He had passed a few tunnels, which had been tempting to explore. However, his sour mood caused him to walk on by. Eventually, he made his way up to the graveyard. It wasn’t a surprise as the graveyard was hard to miss. The section he walked to seemed to be a bit older than some of the sections as the graves were all worn down with age. It was also completely disserted which was what lured Hades inside. He wasn’t certain how long he had been walking along the graves, making his way deeper and deeper inside the graveyard with every step. The sun was starting to set though he knew the train wouldn’t be leaving for another several hours. He couldn’t remember what the reason was for the long stop. Usually, it had something to do with trades and he lost interest in the reasons a long time ago. All he ever really concerned himself with was when the train would be leaving so he could make his way back before it left him behind.
He could feel a ting of hunger within the pit of his stomach that finally caused the white-haired man to snap out of his long trail of thought. He had lifted his head, blinking his golden eyes a few times as he slowly scanned the area around him. That was when it hit him. He had no idea where he was. He couldn’t see the town buildings or the train from where he was. Thankfully, he wasn’t one to panic. He had been following the raising of the moon, which meant he simply needed to turn towards the sun to find his way back. Not that he had any desire to make the trip yet. Despite the hunger starting to swell in his stomach, he didn’t really want to deal with the hunt for a good dinner just yet. So instead, he let out a long sigh, his eyes drifting over the old graves one more time before he spotted a finger in the distance. It seemed he was no longer alone, though it did cause the question of why someone else was out here.
