Lily carried the weight of her scythe upon her shoulders. It was not heavy, it was just big compared to her size. Death on the other hand was tall and could balance his scythe with ease. Lily envied her master. She thought he was the greatest being to walk the earth. But that's not the reason she was his apprentice. She was the greatest of all death wielders and was granted the death scythe. Also, she wanted to be close to her best friend, Sam. Today was the day though, that death went into a deep sleep. Lily had told Sam the last time they saw each other, once everything was in order, she'd visit. But lily couldn't tell when that would be. Her work was overwhelming, she didn't know everything that was happening, and death had fell asleep. - Sam had been waiting for lily at the gates. She wasn't allowed to leave unless Hades told her otherwise. usually lily just came and visit, then left. So Sam was now deep in thought, waiting for lily. But that only lasted for a little bit. A reaper cleared his throat, Sam was broken from thought. He had a couple of souls. Giving her papers, she looked them over before allowing the souls through. The last brushed against her and something felt wrong. Shivers ran down her spine. But instead of giving into tuition, she shrugged it off. Closing off the gate, she continued thinking of lily. - The cursed soul had made it through tartarus. Half the job was complete. Now the only thing left was to start spreading the madness.
