The crazy lady who was very loud was freaking Anteros out. He was a lover not a fighter, okay? He perked up when she mentioned loving the gods. That applied to him, right? But then she threw the candle and it hit his hand. He yelped! Dear Gods he was mortally wounded!!
He wasn't paying attention to what she was yelling he just registered it was loud and not happy sounding. He jumped up and ran for the balcony since it led to the outside but smacked right into the glass with such force it cracked and sent him flying backwards back to the floor. Plus there was an imprint of him on the glass.. he hadn't had a bath since he arrived.
He shook his head and was dazed but still scared. He scrambled to his feet and went off running into the rest of the apartment, going through the first open door he saw which was clearly Hedone's room.
