The detective was already overwhelmed by everything Devlin has ever showed her, she just didn’t show it much. She looked around the room, initially ignoring Devlin. She was bewildered; this strange place was amazing yet dangerous at the same time. Just like Devlin. Ever since they met, she had an uneasy feeling about him and it hasn’t gone away. She knew the dangers and, just like a Mason, she took them head on as they came. She was either really brave or really stupid. Or both.
She looked at Devlin with disbelief. Her mind started working out the details, subtracting and adding the pieces together. No wonder she was good at math in school.
”If the underworld is your home and you’re a demigod - a half human half god - then that would mean you’re father is…”
It wasn’t rocket-science. If she remembered correctly, there was only one god in the underworld.
”Wait, this is a place for the dead. So…so, do I have to be…dead…to stay here?”
He nodded slowly as she started to piece together the new. He kept information away form her for two reasons- one because he was at times scatterbrained and often left out crucial information, and another reason was that he knew that she was a talented detective and can piece together just about anything.
"Hades. It’s been a while actually since I last spoke to him though. You won’t see him around here because he’s off with his own tasks. Plus he’s not really in the best of moods because my stepmother, Persephone is off with her mother. A relief too because I don’t think anyone really wants her around- except obviously, my father."
He continued to stare at her, noticing that she didn’t look particularly disturbed. THe reason he brought her here was because this was one of the safest places to be in, a place where you won’t be on anyone’s radar. It should be easy to breathe here, because there were outlets and part of the River Styx flowed through the section. So she had no trouble breathing and didn’t seem to be hyperventilating.
"Oh no- you are far from dead. Actually, we’re the only two alive beings. You’re simply a guest here momentarily. So- you hungry?"

Alex has to return to Seattle for a day, but leaves Lena a key to his apartment. When she walks into the bedroom, she finds dozens of roses, in every shade, and a note:
I miss you too.
Lena should visit his apartment sometime today. She wasn’t sure what the reason was for him returning to Seattle, but it left her lonely and bored. Calling him didn’t seem wise, considering how he looked when he left and she can go a day without having any contact with him whatsoever. Wasn’t going to be easy, but at least she had his key in the palm of her hands.
Upon reaching, she first noticed the smell- her favorite scent. She loved the romantic appeal of roses, where she knew that if love had a scent, it would be this one. The sight was even better. Splashes of color here and there and for a minute, her heart leaped when she thought that he was somewhere around to catch her in her surprise, but all she found was a small blue note.
